Owen Dabbles in Meth, Jesus & Ben Stiller

by

owen082907.jpgLast week he was everybody’s favorite funny guy, but now Owen Wilson is burning up the tabloids and gossip blogs with talk about what led to his attempted suicide and where the troubled star goes from here. Prior to Sunday’s sad events, Owen supposedly was at the end of a three-day drug binge, using crystal meth and Oxycontin for days before his demise. He also allegedly ingested a bottle of Oxycodone as part of his suicide attempt. The star was spotted three days earlier at church, though we’re not sure how his visit connects tot he events that followed. Maybe he was researching a role – or seeking salvation.

Owen’s also reportedly dropped out of pal Ben Stiller‘s film Tropical Thunder, which he was supposed to begin shooting in a couple of weeks. At least he’s taking care of himself, right? Plus Nick Nolte‘s part of the cast, and he seems like he’d be a really bad influence. [Image: Getty]

This week’s episode of The Hills may start off with all the couple’s happily doing things that normal couple’s don’t do: sizing fake engagement rings, frolicking on the beach in combat boots and of course, getting along. But, oh, how all that will change in an instant thanks to a motorcycle helmet, a couch and a Justin Bobby. How cruel is this life?!

Scott Baio Is…Returning

If the finale of Scott Baio Is 45…and Single, in which Scott’s reunited gf Renee revealed that she’s pregnant to a shocked Baio, seemed like a big old cliffhanger it’s because…it was. Scott, Renee and Co., are set to return to VH1 in a new series documenting the next phase in Scott’s life: impending fatherhood, engagement and getting to know Renee’s daughter Caitlyn. The expanded season, which should feature nine episodes (instead of last season’s seven), is set to shoot in the fall. There’s no word yet on when it will air, but you’d be wise to expect an early ’08 run. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Hottie of the Week: Sheri Moon Zombie

by


Photo_20x9_1 All Sheri Photos

Sheri Moon Zombie is the beautiful and frequently naked wife of horror-metal maestro Rob Zombie. That would automatically qualify her for scream-queen status, but since she’s so into it, appearing in her husband’s films, like this week’s remake of Halloween, we’d guesstimate that that makes her twice to seven times the fright-flick minx Janet Leigh or Neve Campbell ever was. The big difference is that Sheri Moon Zombie is never the victim. She’s the killer, a stunning homicidal maniac with a heart made of razorblades and lye. In House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects she played Baby Firefly, the very twisted little sister. In Grindhouse she played a werewolf woman of the S.S. (in Werewolf Women of the S.S., natch). And in everything she’s done so far, she’s revolutionized the color and shape of fanboy fantasies across the great U.S. and A. Check out these pics to see for yourself. [Getty]

Britney’s New Single: Dropping Next Week?

by

britney082907.jpgThe washed up pop princess (or Queen Mother, really) is ready to give you more, whether you want it or not. Entertainment Weekly is exclusively reporting that the first single from Brit’s fifth album could drop as early as next week. The single is apparently called “Gimme More” and it’s “an up-tempo club cut produced by Timbaland protégé Nate ”Danjahandz” Hills.” Anonymous sources tell EW that “‘People are going to love [the new single],” and ”It’s a smash! She’s going to come out strong.” But the spies also question if the public is ready for a new, upbeat Britney with all the drama she’s flaunting these days. Apparently her studio is a little worried too, as another source reveals that the album is “expected to hit shelves this fall with little to no promotional setup.”

We think people will buy the album whether it’s good or not – if only to experience the musical trainwreck that could possibly be about to go down. As for her new “club cut” of a single, our guess is that it’s really just a secret message to K-Fed telling him to bring on the subpoenas. Afterall, Brit’s reportedly hired a private eye to spy on his ass. Gimme more custody drama, please! [EW. Image: Getty]

Rock on TV – The Shortlist

by

macphisto.jpgJonesing for music on your television set? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Our Rock on TV schedule gives you plenty of choices. Here are today’s highlights.

Zoo TV – Live From Sydney, 8 p.m. (EST), VH1 Classic: U2 played Australia on the last leg of their Zoo TV tour — the one that began with the release of Achtung, Baby, and continued well past the time when people were wondering what, exactly, Zooropa was all about. Despite Bono putting on weight (so much so, he resembles Robin Williams here), and the relatively poor sound quality at the show, the band’s energy is high and Macphisto remains charismatic. When he calls the White House and asks to speak to George Bush, we still get an illicit thrill. Mainly because we tried the same thing this morning, and the operator hung up on us, too.

The Late Show With David Letterman, 11:35 p.m. (EST), CBS: Neo-punk saviors Against Me! play for Dave and Paul and everyone else. If you believe critics, then you’ll already know that the Florida band’s latest, New Wave, is out and that it’s good. We like how they’ve cleverly combined the rock-ier sensibilities of the Offspring with the swagger of the Dropkick Murphys. But mainly we like how they titled one of their earlier albums Reinventing Axl Rose. That’s balls, folks.
