Ashley Tisdale Ruins her Face for Fame



In a desperate attempt to look less like a human and more like all the other plastic robots wandering Los Angeles, High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale has gone and gotten herself a nose job! She used the old “deviated septum” excuse, but if you check out the before and after pics above you can see the obvious changes her nose has gone through. Before, she looked normal and interesting. After, she looks fake and puckered. Success!

But two former stars who have also been sliced up – Tara Reid and Michael Jackson – have recently been photographed looked more frightening than famous. Tara’s new scary skinny bod is one hundred percent freakish and zero percent sexy; while Michael just looks totally butchered (and covered in band aids!). So let this be a warning to the Tis – you’re just a couple slices away from looking really effed up. [People]

The Dark Knight Returns


Guess who’s back? Back again? The Joker’s back. Tell a friend. Or something. In the new trailer for 2008′s The Dark Knight, we’re treated to a visual smorgasbord of a bleakly apocalyptic Gotham City (which, for those of us who live in New York City, is pretty much every day). Following the events of the last film, the Batman and Lieutenant Gordon decide to rid the city of the remaining vestiges of its criminal underworld. Unfortunately, they’re blocked in that attempt by the Joker, who looks twice as scary as Jack Nicholson ever did. We’re counting the days until July 18.

Britney’s Worst Year Ever: May


britney_may07.jpgYou were there through the bad driving, the head-shaving, and the Criss Angel thing. It’s been a tough year for our girl. No one could have imagined a mere 12 months ago that she’d create such glorious new nonsense every week. Some of the craziness escapes you? Come back every day: We’re counting down the events that made up the Year in Britney.

May 3Don’t Call it a Comeback – Britney took to the stage in a wig, fur coat, short skirt and trashy boots for her first performance since her divorce and rehab stint. Though she spent a few minutes on stage singing and writhing around, her House of Blues shows looked more like her meltdowns than a performance – with a little choreography sprinkled on top. [People]

May 16The Message – The singer became a scribe when she took to her website to post an ultra-personal message to her fans. Thanking them for their prayers, she waxed poetic about their support during her “trying time.” Little did they know her situation – and her writing – were only gonna get a lot worse. [I’mNotObsessed]

May 18The Weave Debuts! – It’s a rug! It’s dead roadkill! It’s BRITNEY’S WEAVE! Finally, after months of wig-wearing, Britney was able to pay someone enough money to bind pounds of fake hair to the buzz cut she had grown out on her noggin. But her nasty new hair soon became the butt of every blogger’s joke, and TMZ even called her hair-tastrophy one of the great man-made wonders of the world. We like to think of it as more of an unnatural disaster. [DListed]

May 29I Was So Lost – The starlet capped off the spring with another post to her website, but this time her rambling took on a depressing, helpless tone. In the lengthy post Britney addressed her trip to rehab, her manager, divorce and how she had “cut so many people” out of her life. She went from acknowledging her issues : “I truly hit rock bottom,” to sounding surprisingly human: “I just want the same things in life that you want…and that is to be happy.” But in the end, she only solidified her reputation as a train wreck.

2007′s Craziest: Rosie Runs Off The View


Some gossip stories are too big to forget. We’re counting down the 20 biggest, baddest, and most ridiculous celeb scandals of the year. You’ll get a new one posted every day.

On May 23rd, after a heated battle with her conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Rosie O’Donnell announced that she’d no longer be appearing on the hit daytime show, even though she had just a few weeks left of her contract. Her departure left us missing all the wonderfully crazy moments she brought to the show, from the Bush bashing to the dancing to the confetti drops. Our ears rang out in pain, longing for the hour of Rosie shrieks we had come to know and love. In honor of that glorious year that all came down in one brutal split-screen battle, we bring you the moment that sealed the deal for Ro, the real queen of daytime. Sorry Babwa.

Amy Winehouse: Jail Cell Bound?

Wino might have been more involved in her hubby’s bribery plot (that has landed him in jail) than cops originally thought. Turns out love is definitely a losing game. [DListed]

Tila Tequila: The Final Episode Preview


Darling Tila! How we yearned for your decision! We yearned so hard, we were forced to make up our own version of your final episode right here on this blogroll! But your mercy is bountiful, and your generosity renowned across these United States of America. And so, both to quell our cravings and stoke our desire, you’ve released this fascinating clip of your final episode fandango. In it, you ask your potential mates, Bobby and Dani, to accompany you to your studio. There you implore them to write and record a rap song for you. Bobby’s is weak. Dani’s is strong. Pick Dani, please, Tila. Please.

*Isn’t it interesting how the final two contestants on A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila are a feminine man and a masculine woman? Isn’t also interesting how both have gender neutral names? That’s all we have to say on this point . . . but still, we think it’s interesting and are forced to ask: Is MTV headed off to androgyny-ville?

You Are My #1 Priority


connected_200x.jpgWe all know how fast things go in the entertainment industry. Careers explode, gossip erupts, hook-ups blossom nightly. That’s the world of our “Connected” mini series, which follows the biz and personal lives of several L.A. creative types. Remember last year’s episodes? Super agent David Newman was at the center of several rock and movie projects that found his roster of clients in various predicaments.

Season 2 starts up with the same kind of stuff – everyone using their Sidekicks to untangle both their romantic and business schedules. We’ll be dropping an episode a week for the next couple of months. Get connected with the gang.

Eva & Tony: Everything’s Great!


eva-tony-1214.jpgDon’t worry guys, Tony Parker and Eva Longoria are not at ALL fazed by all those rumors swirling about Tony bedding a French model. They aren’t even thinking about those text messages she said he wrote or the pic he supposedly sent to her phone. They’ve forgotten all about it – they’re still so in the honeymoon phase of their marriage that all they can do is cuddle and coo at each other! Just yesterday they did a ton of things together, just like any old couple who may or may not be trying to prove that everything is just dandy in their relationship. Tony spent time with his wife on the set of her commercial shoot for L’Oreal. A source on-set said, “She came back with a big smile on her face and acted as if nothing could possibly be wrong. At the end of the day, they came out holding hands and seemed very much together.” Of course they did!

Later in the day, Eva watcher her man play basketball with his NBA team the Spurs, except that Tony sat out of the entire game with a sprained ankle. She’s so in love that she just likes to watch him rest on the bench. Then they capped off their day together with dinner with pals at Katsuya in Hollywood. And finally, back at home, they ended their romantic day with a wonderful screaming match, and after throwing some plates at each other they ran off to sleep in separate bedrooms (we imagine). Just a regular night out for the most in love couple in the world.

Britney’s Worst Year Ever: April



You were there through the bad driving, the head-shaving, and the Criss Angel thing. It’s been a tough year for our girl. No one could have imagined a mere 12 months ago that she’d create such glorious new nonsense every week. Some of the craziness escapes you? Come back every day: We’re counting down the events that made up the Year in Britney.

April 5One Day at a Time – Britney’s clearly well versed in all things toxic, bachelors included. So it wasn’t exactly surprising when news emerged that she had dabbled in rehab romance. Life & Style reported that Brit “fell hard” for bad-boy singer-songwriter Howie Day in rehab and that he’s the “best kisser ever!” Howie has a history of run-ins with the law, which means Brit was adding yet another wonderful influence to her arsenal. You know how she rolls. [MSNBC]

April 15Just Can’t Manage – Not a month after leaving the rehab manager Larry Rudolph had allegedly confined Britney to, she fired him. To hear the New York Post tell it, Brit used him as a scapegoat and blamed him for all of her then-recent woes, including introducing her to Paris Hilton. If that’s true, it’s actually probably the most lucid move she made all year. Days later, Britney’s father, Jamie, took the opportunity to publicly criticize his daughter. Said Daddy: “The Spears family would like to publicly apologize to Larry for our daughter’s statements about him over the past few weeks. Unfortunately, she blames him and her family for where she is at today with her kids and career. Larry has always been there for Britney. For this, we will forever be grateful to him.” Adding more juice to the pot, Britney responded to her father: “I am praying for my father. We have never had a good relationship. It’s sad that all the men that have been in my life do not know how to accept a real woman’s love. I am concentrating on my work and my life right now.” It’s hard work keeping those tongues wagging, you know? [New York Post]
