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

All Hayden Pics
Happy birthday, Hayden. This is the week that the Heroes starlet turned 18. It’s also the week that the first season of her superpowered TV show comes out on DVD. On the small screen she plays Claire Bennett, an indestructible Texas cheerleader, but in real-life, the actress is very much larger-than-life. Hayden’s basically been working since she was in the womb, and she’s comfortable with fame. Comfortable enough to tell David Letterman, for instance, that, “I don’t think much changes when you’re 18 — maybe the way people treat you. But I think the only things I can do is buy cigarettes, porn and, if I get in trouble with the law, I’m kind of screwed.”
Nice to see that she’s so civic-minded. In actuality, she did spend her birthday registering to vote. For such a tiny little blonde person, she’s got oodles of charisma. (Another favorite quote: After Heroes was picked up for a full season in 2006, she bought a Porsche Cayenne SUV and told Entertainment Weekly, “I almost ran over Kanye West this morning.” Good going!) Check out our full gallery of Hayden pics here.

In this episode, Linda gets serious about working out…
Her tongue is gonna be diesel!
The LA County District Attorney has finally filed charges against the road raging Lindsay Lohan, and the starlet appears to be getting off easy. Boooooooo. The charges are seven misdemeanors, including two counts of driving under the influence. No felonies were brought against the star for the cocaine that was found in her car, her pants and her bloodstream, which was “below the .05 grams required by office policy for felony filing.” So what does that mean, the coke had worn off? She probably drove into the curb trying to snort a fresh line. If Linds is found guilty of both DUIs she faces up to four days in jail (we hear Nicole Richie needs a cellmate!), and it sounds like they went easy on Linds because she’s young, effed up and has been in rehab three times. A source told TMZ, “Prosecutors in this county see a lot of kids in crisis. There are lots of kids struggling with addiction. The first sign of trouble usually involves a car. We’re not going to throw every one of them in prison. It doesn’t make sense.”
So jail her for making that craptastic stripper murder movie. That makes a whole lot of sense to us. [TMZ. Image: Getty]

Lindsay Caught Buying Beer in Rehab?
Lindsay’s Spa-Hab Vacation
new season spin-off of last winter’s hit MC competition Ego Trip’s The (White) Rapper Show brewing and this time, it’s all about the ladies. The as-yet-untitled sister series will search for a great, white and female hip-hop hope. There are no details yet on when the show is set to hit the air — in fact, it hasn’t even filmed yet. Producers will be holding open auditions starting Saturday, Aug. 25 in Chicago at Dave and Busters (address: 1030 North Clark) from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Interested ladies should bring a photo, a bio and a CD with three tracks. If you don’t hail from Chi-town, don’t worry: future auditions are planned for Philadelphia, Atlanta, Miami and Los Angeles. For more info, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We couldn’t be more excited to cover a show that has the potential to be Flavor of Love in iambic pentameter. Maybe the all-girl slant on this is retribution for the fact that Persia was completely and utterly robbed last season.
UPDATE: The competition is for female rappers of all races, not just white women, as previously reported. See how that works? First season was white, second is girls…maybe the third will be animals? MC Skat Kat, get ready for career resuscitation!
