All Spice Girls Pics
How many different ways can you think of to say “cougar-ific?” We can think of at least five — and lucky for us, they’re all collected together in the Spice Girls. The ’90s British sensation kicked off a decade’s worth of bubblegum pop and teen idolatry with singles that ran ruts in the collective consciousness. (We dare you not to hum “Wannabe” right now. Hard, right?) In the years since their initial rise to fame, they never left the pop-culture eye. Posh turned her marriage into a business venture; Baby started a solo career and made guest appearances in Bollywood films; Scary broke up with Eddie Murphy and made it to the finals of Dancing With the Stars. And that’s to say nothing of their reunion. Their tour kicks off Sunday in Vancouver, and they’ll be heavily featured on CBS’s broadcast of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on December 4th. We’re looking forward to their get-ups.

Darling Tila, last week you were kind enough to grant our wishes and deign to call. We enjoyed our conversation so very much . . . and we can’t wait to speak to you again. Allow us, then, to savor what delicious words we exchanged here, below, when we began to talk about the celestial challenges you had proposed to your suitors, why your girls were smarter than your boys, and how Ashley wound up kicking himself to the hospital — and taking Bobby with them. These are your stories. And we can’t wait to hear you speak about them again. Interview after the jump. Read more…
- Rumor has it that Marie Osmond faked her famous fainting spell on Dancing With the Stars. Fair enough: if it’s real, it’s not worth doing. That’s what TV taught me! [Dlisted]
- Is Dannielynn Birkhead the reincarnation of her mother Anna Nicole? She looks like it, but we won’t know for sure until we hear her baby voice say, “Like my body?” [CityRag]
- Amy Winehouse covers her nose for the paps. I think she has a serious problem. A sinus infection, probably. [Seriously? OMG! WTF?]
- Nas‘ album Nigger reportedly has been pushed back to a February release. What better way to celebrate Black History Month than with a reflection of how far we haven’t come as a society? [Crunk + Disorderly]

This kind of news is never fun to read. Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor was gunned down in his home early Monday, and passed away from his wounds this morning. Taylor was shot in the upper leg, “damaging the key femoral artery and causing significant blood loss.” Police believe he was shot in an apparent robbery and his murder comes only a week after his house was broken into and a knife left on a bed.
Taylor’s past is a little shady, but he appeared to have been turning things around since the birth of his daughter Jackie. Besides his infamous take down of a punter in last year’s Pro Bowl (which is supposed to be a friendly game), he’s caused trouble both on and off the field: racking up a DUI charge and numerous fines and penalties from the NFL for everything from spitting in a player’s face to uniform violations. He also was embroiled in a notorious assault case after he was accused of pulling a gun on a man he believed stole cars from his home. The case ended with Taylor getting 18 months probation. In recent months, however, his outlook and attitude changed. His teammate Clinton Portis said, “…Ever since he had his child, it was like a new Sean, and everybody around here knew it. He was always smiling, always happy, always talking about his child.”
A child who will surely miss her dad.
Usher‘s wife, Tameka Foster, reportedly gave birth to a boy Monday night. Word is that Tameka and baby are expected to head home from the hospital on Wednesday. The family has yet to release a statement, so details are scant. We know nothing of the boy’s name or his birth weight. I know the mystery of Usher’s child’s birth weight is going to keep you up at night, so rest assured, we will keep you updated as details roll in. The story is still developing…like a newborn, actually. [People]
Well? What are you waiting for?
Always keep an eye on your bags when traveling – where have we heard that before? But Kim Kardashian didn’t, and so now she’s allegedly $50K lighter in the jewelry department (Hello, Allstate?). Guess when you’re a fab West Coast hottie and you’re traveling with your fab West Coast hottie sis, you need your peeps to protect your crud. Kim & Kourt didn’t go that route. On their way to Vegas, they were signing autographs and mingling with the Delta Airlines crew when someone smoked ‘em for their ice and laptop and whatever else was in their luggage. Maybe a bad guy now knows what’s on KK’s iPod! As you read, he’s probably chilling, watching Paris’ “Stars Are Blind.”
Last night on The Hills, we learned a valuable lesson: Girls can hit other girls. Also, we learned that Lauren knows how to make one hardcore, reallllllly ugly face as her token reaction to everything.
Eh, perhaps that’s the most important lesson of all.
Poor Domenico Nessi. The Italian joker was the most charismatic of Tila Tequila‘s contestants — until he was kicked off the show last week. He’d told Tila that meeting his parents would be a rocky affair, and despite how she felt about him, she told him that he had to be let go. Now it seems that MTV is casting for a show Domenico will host. As Dlisted pointed out yesterday, the series will be called That’s Amore and will feature the talents of many, many ladies vying for Domenico’s affection.
