Remember that sexalicious off-key crooner Constantine Maroulis? Admit it, you too were totally turned on by his stringy hair and dimpled chin. Well now he can be all your’s – if you’re into BINGO and live in Wisconsin, that is. Yup, the singer – who has appeared on soaps and off-Broadway since his Idol run and is rumored to be dating Debbie Gibson – recently made an appearance in Oneida, WI at the local bingo night. He’s come so far since rockin’ out for Simon and Randy! Impressive.
Meanwhile, last season’s runner-up Blake Lewis was busy being a tool this New Year’s Eve, shouting “Titties in yo mouth!” to a pap’s video camera (if only he had beat-boxed it). American Idol just keeps churning out winners! We can’t wait to see what kind of stars they’ve unearthed this time around – the new season of Idol debuts on January 15th!
Last night, Variety confirmed what you all knew in your hearts to be true: A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila is returning for a second season on MTV. The show will follow the same format as the initial series — 10 episodes wherein men and women compete for a chance at Tila’s affections and network superstardom (the show earned a 5.9 rating among viewers aged 12-34, which means it enjoyed, to paraphrase Borat, great success). It will premiere next spring, following the Tila Tequila spin-off, That’s Amore with Domenico Nesci, who will be aided in his search by Ashley, the insane guy who broke his foot when he was kicked off the initial series.
But wait, you say! What about Bobby, the first season winner who vanquished Dani and promised to cherish his Tequila moments forever? According to Tila’s blog, it just didn’t work out. Writes Ms. Tequila, “Bobby had broken up with me a few days before all of this went down. I wasn’t expecting it at all because I thought I had finally found someone that I was compatible with, but I guess I was wrong. My hectic schedule was really hard on him and we both were getting frustrated, but at the same time . . . I just wanted to find someone who would understand what a crazy lifestyle I have so it’s too bad that things didn’t work out between us. With that said I just want to make it known that I still think Bobby is a great guy and I wish him the best.”
In the meantime, Tila Tequila and company partied hard on New Year’s at Tila’s masquerade ball in New York. Those in attendance? Ashley, Dani, Domenico and Vanessa (from the series), Perez Hilton, Angela Simmons, Wyclef Jean and Paramore. We wish all of them health, happiness, and good luck in finding soul-mates with the help of MTV.
UGH! Bobby Wins Tila Tequila!

Scientists have often argued that animals, unlike humans, do not have or use reason. And with her current choice of boyfriend, it looks like Britney Spears has a lot more in common with her dog London that we thought. The peculiar pop princess is supposedly dating one of the stalkerazzi that follows her around 24/7, and the pair even spent New Year’s Even together with her kids. Seriously. This is either the stupidest idea Brit’s ever had or she’s working some awesome spy move, where she’s boning the dude to get into the inner circle that’s set out to destroy her. After the photog spent time with Brit in her hotel room last week, the gang rang in ’08 at a fancy beach house – with her court appointed monitor along for the ride, obvs. Think they posed for any pics?
You can check out her new man – Adnan Ghalib – in all his creepy paparazzo hotness here. What do you think is their favorite date activity?
a) Running over each others’ feet with Brit’s Mercedes.
b) Finding a quaint gas station bathroom to cuddle in.
c) An early morning surprise photoshoot outside of Brit’s fave Starbucks.
d) An all day shopping spree where anything goes – cars, dogs, birds, chandeliers & tanning, ya’ll!

Looks like Lindsay Lohan has found a new addiction — Italian men. While accepting an award at the Capri Film Festival this past weekend, Lindz hooked up with three Italian dudes in 24 hours, taking one back to her room at the end of the night.
First up was waiter Alessandro Di Nunzio, whom she met upon arrival. The pair shared a meal and a quick tryst, but the next day La Lohan was off with old-enough-to-be-her-dad actor Eduardo Costa. It was Lohan’s third and final selection, actor Dario Faiella, that made it back to her hotel room though. After a classy makeout session in plain view of cameras at a nightclub, the pair headed to her hotel and were photographed looking disheveled on the balcony of her room the following morning. No word on what the newly clean-living actress received an award for.

What’s that we hear? Why, it’s the sound of stillettos stomping down the aisle for a second – yes, second - time. Kim Kardashian is allegedly engaged to her man, 22-year old NFL star Reggie Bush, who she’s been dating for like one whole month! How sweet – we’re sure weddings are way more romantic the second time around (27-year old Kim was married before to producer Damon Thomas for four years). Sources are saying the two are definitely headed for the aisle, but Kim won’t reveal any deets about her love life because, as she admits, she kinda learned her lesson with that video of her bumpin’ uglies with Ray J. “One thing I did learn from ‘07 was to try to keep it as private as possible,” Kim told OK! Magazine, “So I’m trying to hold that close to my heart.” If you’re clamoring to buy the happy couple an engagement, Kim’s professed a love of cooking soul food, so surely cooking supplies would come in handy. But if you want to surprise the pair with something creative, go with a gift from our list below:
- Season One DVD of Keeping Up with the Kardashians (we know she loves watching herself on video)
- A vintage Suzanne Somers ButtMaster LBX™
- Perfume by ex-BFF Paris Hilton

In the latest episode of Connected, rivalry turns into romance. Battling agents David and Ruthie get into a tiff that generates some steam, and concludes with some corridor groping, smeared lipstick, a dress hiked up, and a smile on his face. To quote Lindsay Buckingham, “that’s how they do it in L.A.”
There are other sexual maneuvers going on, too. British rocker Troy comes up with some lame-o lines to seduce Jane, who’s fearful that her 15 minutes are ticking away. There’s a quick victory for Emily, in her new job in Ruthie’s office – she lands someone we know as a client. Wanna find out who? Head to Connected.

Dog the Bounty Hunter – A&E’s mulleted reality star – took a serious beating in the media this November, after a phone call of him dropping N-Bombs like crazy leaked. The incident – and its aftermath – capped off a year filled with scandals stemming from derogatory language. Dog’s recorded rage revolved around his son’s African-American girlfriend, and his opinion of her was less than complimentary – it was straight up racist and gross. Almost immediately Dog apologized, prayed with his pastor and reached out to the go-to guy for idiots who say stupid stuff – the Reverend Al Sharpton. Still, A&E “suspended production on the series” and has yet to change it’s position on the show. Dog tried to explain his word choice and in an interview on Fox said, “…There’s a special connection that I thought I had between me and black America. And I used to say, ‘I’m black, too.’ In other words, I — my whole life I’ve been called a half-breed, a convict, king of the trailer trash, this and that. I take that and stand.”
Dog finally admitted, “I now learned I’m not black at all.” Better late than never.
