Nicole to Reveal All – or Nothing – in Interview


nicolerichie072607.jpgFinally! Nicole Richie wants to spill the beans about her summer in hiding. The skinny star will be interviewed by Diane Sawyer in segments that will appear next week on Good Morning America and 20/20. Hopefully Diane won’t go easy on Nicole, but in case she throws softballs at the starlet – “Nicole, the world is dying to know… How do you do your hair?” – here are some questions for the anchor to toss at the tiny mom-to-be:

  • Is driving the wrong way on the highway fun? Honestly, it is, right?
  • Seriouslyis Ashlee Simpson pregnant?
  • What’s up with that skunk on Joel Madden‘s head?
  • Who’s prettier – Hilary or Haylie Duff?
  • You’ve already named your dog Honeychild. Are going to call your baby MolassesPuppy?
  • Was feuding with Paris Hilton like being a vacation from stupidity?
  • The world is dying to know… How do you do your hair? [Image: Getty]

Kelly Rowland is “Chocolate and Beautiful”


kellyrowland072607.jpgThe former Destiny’s Child crooner reveals her past insecurities in next month Essence magazine, telling the rag:

“I remember wishing I was more fair-skinned, but Tina Knowles, Beyoncé‘s mom, would say, ‘Don’t you know how beautiful you are?’ She made me come into my brown beauty. I didn’t get it, but now I do. I am chocolate and beautiful and loving it.”

We’re loving it too Kelly! It’s so nice to see someone have a “You go girl!” moment amidst all the other messes of ladies out there. If only you could pass some of that self-esteem along…Hm, if you can turn it into a powder maybe LiLo will snort it! [NY Post / Image: Getty]

Beyoncé to Gossips: Kiss My Grits



Beyoncé is beautiful (and for that matter, bootylicious) no matter what they say, but it turns out that words can get her down. And for that reason, the much-scrutinized diva stays off the blogs. Says Bey:

Sometimes I’ll run across certain things, usually in the paper, because I read the paper more so than the Web. There’s one or two sites that I can go to. But if I go on the Internet and try to see what people are saying, I’ll probably want to crawl under a rock. (Laughs.) Because I’m still human and certain things, it just hurts, so I try not to read the Internet too much.

It’s always ridiculous when superstars feel the need to remind us that they’re human, as though they think that we think that their synergy of incredible luck and skill has somehow altered their DNA. Besides that, Bey, who’s one of the most guarded and least-revealing divas that pop music has ever seen, is definitely going for the self-humanizing angle here. While it could very well be true, this plea of vulnerability has about the emotional resonance of the crocodile tears that flow from her eyes every night she sings “Flaws and All” on stage. Here’s a flaw for you: bad acting. We saw Dreamgirls, Bey. You can’t fool us. (Not that you’re listening or anything.) [AP/Yahoo! / Image credit: Getty]

Lindsay’s Sister Ali Speaks!


alilohan072607.jpgThe 13-year old Lohan sister spoke out to 24/Sizzler about her big sister’s latest controversy, and the tiny tween has a lottttt to say. Here’s what Lindsay’s mini-me allegedly wrote in an email:

“…i want everybody to know the truth out there. My mom is a single mom of four children she has always been there for us, she was my mother and father and still is. My father is telling all lies to people and saying he was such a great dad and was always there for us, my father was never there for us, My mom was always there souporting us. i think that the whole reason why my sister is upset with her self and not as cofident, is because of my dad not being around, and always staying out late and not coming home for days, he would come back home never himself, he was always was making excuses for his bad behavior… I’ve wanted to say this for so long and get this out there and let everyone know that our family is like a normal family but of course we are put under a microscope because of lindsays fame, lindsay will be fine she is just going through a rough time right now but she will be fine. i know this for a fact. My sisters is just like a normal sister.”

What an adorable, ‘souportive’ little sis. It’s too bad that she’s barely a teenager and already she’s been sucked into the drama. But as long as she doesn’t let it get to her head – or up her nose – she’ll hopefully turn out okay. Or at least she’ll be ‘cofident’ and not upset with herself. [24/Sizzler / Image: Getty]

Blog Best-Of: Danity’s Duplicate


danity_c_links.jpg – Ever notice how much that blonde girl from Danity Kane looks like Rock of Love‘s Brandi C.? [Crunk + Disorderly]

- Along those lines, Fergie and Carrot Top are ringers. You know what would make Fergie’s music better? Props. [CityRag]

- “Experts” are concerned that at 15 months, Suri Crusie is still on the bottle. Apparently, there’s a chance she may become addicted to the “sucking impulse.” Awww…she takes after her father. (We’re referring to Tom‘s acting, of course.) [Dlisted]

- Brigitte Nielsen talks from the Flavor Flav roast’s purple carpet. She looks like a new woman. Maybe rehab does a body good. [Popbytes]

- Kanye West hits back at 50 Cent for planning to release his album on the same day. If Fiddy doesn’t watch out, Kanye’s totally going to slap him with a glove or, like, suffocate him in a Prada bag. [Bossip]

Is K-Fed The Voice of Reason?


kevinfederline072507.jpgThat guy? No way. Just say it ain’t so Britney. Please, just tell us you’re the better parent. Ugh – you didn’t really just jump into the ocean in your underwear, did you?

Sigh. Things keep looking down for Brit, as her ex-assistant and cousin Alli apparently has left Brit’s side to join Lynne Spears and Kevin Federline in the fight to wrangle JJ and Sean P. away from their crazy mama. A source told OK!, “Alli gave specific instances where Brit couldn’t handle having the kids. Kevin was angry at Britney for putting his kids in jeopardy and immediately phoned his lawyer to investigate the claims further. He couldn’t believe she had gotten so out of control.”

Really? How could he not have guessed that when she walks around like this? It’s scary to think that we now live in a world where K-Fed, sock n’ flip flops wearing, “PoPoZao” rapping K-Fed, is the better parent. Although to his credit, “PoPoZao” sounds way better as a lullaby. Alli must have really seen some crazy stuff. Or maybe she just got sick of mopping up dog pee with Versace gowns. [Image: Getty]

Jessica Alba Ruins A Man’s Life


jessicacash.jpgPoor Cash Warren. Not only did the handsome Hollywood producer/nobody get dumped by his girlfriend of two and a half years, the lady did it over the phone. She then promptly had all his stuff removed from her home. But the worst part? His ex-lady was JESSICA ALBA. Ouch. Here’s a tissue, Cash. Let those tears flow.

This opens up an exciting opportunity for the lads of La La Land (and an annoying one for all the Jessicas and Jennifers out there) – who will hot Alba date next? She seems to go for the non-actor types, but may we remind her that both George Clooney AND Andy Dick are single?! Go to town, girlfriend! [Us Weekly. Image: Getty]

Asia: Broken Pussycat Doll



After months of speculation (some of which appeared on this very blog), we now have nearly official word that Asia Nitollano, “winner” of the CW reality hit Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll, has left the group. CW honcho Dawn Ostroff announced at a press conference last week that Asia has left the group to pursue a solo career. No word on whether that will be in the field of music, prizefighting or linguistics. Regardless, the disagreeable French fry fanatic clearly has a bright future ahead of her.

Of course, this has cause a few to grumble about the legitimacy of the show — what was the point if the winner didn’t end up with a prize (especially when promos for a second season aired during the first season’s finale)? Ostroff was careful to point out that Asia left the group (she wasn’t, say, thrown out for being a total jerk) and that she did so only after the finale aired.

I couldn’t care less about what happens to the winner of the show, as long as craptastic reality TV like Search continues to be churned out. It’s all about the means, never the ends, people. Have you learned nothing from America’s Next Top Model (besides how to smile with your eyes)? Besides, is there really a big difference between fading into the background of the Pussycat Dolls and falling of the face of the earth, anyway? [Chicago Sun-Times, Image credit: Getty]
