So apparently that giant feud between Kanye and Fiddy was fake. Well gee, we spent a lot of time crying over nothing then. All to sell albums? Thanks a lot, guys. Page Six reports that the rappers joined Diddy, T.I., and Jay-Z at the 40/40 Club Wednesday night and palled around over vodka shots. Their boys night out came after the Screamfest ’07 show at Madison Square Garden where the group of guys all performed together onstage. Some feud that was! We’re not buying anyone’s albums on September 11th – so there. [NYP. MTV. Image: Getty]
Every day we’re amazed at the ridiculous things that come out of the mouths of famous people. We’ve rounded up the best of this week’s wackiest celeb statements for your reading pleasure, straight from Jamie Foxx, Amy Winehouse, and a slew of your other favorite stars. Enjoy their wise words – and your sanity.
- “If they’re using dry paper, they aren’t washing all of themselves. It’s just unclean. So if I go in a woman’s house and see the toilet paper there, I’ll explain this. And if she doesn’t make the adjustment to baby wipes, I’ll know she’s not completely clean.” – Terrence Howard, detailing to Elle Magazine why he will only date women who use baby wipes after going to the bathroom.

- “Blake is the best man in the world. We would never ever harm each other. Take back what you said on the blog. I thought you was my girl. I was cutting myself after he found me in our room about to do drugs with a call girl and rightly said I wasn’t good enough for him. I lost it and he saved my life.” - Amy Winehouse in a text message to blogger Perez Hilton, following a bloddy fight with her husband. [PerezHilton]
After getting off nice n’ easy with a plea bargain that will land the starlet with one day of jail time and ten days community service, Lindsay Lohan released the following statement admitting – finally – that she is “addicted to alcohol and drugs.” Give it a read and let us know what you think – is she fully changed or full of s**t?
“It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs. Recently, I relapsed and did things for which I am ashamed. I broke the law, and today I took responsibility by pleading guilty to the charges in my case. No matter what I said when I was under the influence on the day I was arrested, I am not blaming anyone else for my conduct other than myself. I thank God I did not injure others. I easily could have. I very much want to be healthy and gain control of my life and career and have asked for medical help in doing so. I am taking these steps to improve my life. Luckily, I am not alone in my daily struggle and I know that people like me have succeeded. Maybe with time it will become easier. I hope so.”

You know you’re over 30 when you discover that bad credit and collection agencies aren’t just the stuff of insomniac theater. In last night’s I Hate My 30s, Chad‘s poor financial habits catch up with him and leave him homeless. In the meantime, Kyle and Katie get an unexpected visitor. The two roommates get to host Kyle’s teenage niece, Kelly, after she has an argument with her mother and runs away from home. Kelly’s the shoe-shopping obsessive of Internet fame, and her abrasive personality doesn’t mesh well with Katie, who’s an obsessive herself — an obsessive real-estate agent. We caught up with Katie and Kelly to ask them about each other, Kyle and shoes. Interviews after the jump. Read more…
The latest installment of the Amy Winehouse saga has taken a left off of disturbing onto the expressway to tragic. On Thursday night the rehab-averse Winehouse was spotted ducking into a newsagent to pick up smokes, bloodied and her signature eye make-up smeared. Photos of her sliced up husband (commonly thought of as the British Kevin Federline) and Winehouse were quickly put up on PerezHilton.com, but here’s where the story takes a turn for the battered wife syndrome. After texting Amy to convey his concern, Perez receives several texts back, explaining what happened: “I was cutting myself after he found me in our room about to do drugs with a call girl and rightly said I wasn’t good enough for him. I lost it and he saved my life.” As time goes on Winehouse gets more and more agitated that Perez hasn’t posted her version of events, stating her husband “deserves the truth, he is an amazing man who saved my life again and got cut badly for his troubles. All he get is horrible stories printed about him and he just keeps quiet, but this i too much.” So let’s get this straight — he’s cool with getting sliced with razor blades and finding his wife doing drugs in a bathroom, but the final straw is “lies” on the internet?

Every week we round up selections from the funniest, most obscene and brutal film criticism out there so that you don’t waste your cash at the theaters and laugh a little at Hollywood’s expense. This week: The film adaptation of The Nanny Diaries, a roman-a-clef about a young woman (Scarlett Johansson) who tends to the children of an obscenely wealthy Manhattan family and falls in love with a Harvard hunk (Chris Evans), isn’t just execrable. Apparently it’s so far beyond insulting, it’s got liberal standard-bearer The Village Voice arguing for the rights of employers everywhere. Enjoy the irritating fantasy, audiences!
“A grim slog . . . a display of chick-flick clichés through the ages.” — New York
“Boss hate . . . has become something of a literary cottage industry in recent years, with the appearance of several surprise bestsellers about the disgruntled underlings of the rich and famous (or the merely rich), most of which are so fatally predictable in their imperious bile-spewing as to make you wonder when some CEO will counter the trend with the scandalous memoir The Assistant Shows Up Late, Makes Personal Calls on Company Time, and Is Delusional Enough to Think That I Should Actually Care About Her Feelings.” — The Village Voice
