Ross: From Fit Club to Girls’ Club?

by

Rossm_view
Is the now-skinny Celebrity Fit Club album Ross Matthews ready to chew the fat with the ladies of The View full-time? That’s the rumor that’s swirling around the seat that Rosie O’Donnell‘s May departure from the show has left vacant. Ross and comedian Mario Cantone are set to guest host the show next month, leading to speculation that a dude might eventually replace Ro. This would effectively end The View panel’s estrogen-only policy. View grand dame Barbara Walters has said that the choice for Rosie’s replacement won’t be revealed until late July, and a mouthpiece for the show says that no offers have been made. Other names batted around have included Whoopi Goldberg and Kathy Griffin.

Isn’t the whole point of The View that it’s a bunch of women sitting around other women, talking out of their women’s mouths and using their women’s brains? Doesn’t having a man on the panel undermine its identity? Even worse: what does adding a dude to the forum who’s as openly…open as Ross or Mario really say? That flamboyant is the new female?

The Cult of Clay Aiken

by

Aiken Just when you thought Idol hysteria couldn’t get any more absurd, Idol: The Musical comes along. Slated for an Off Broadway run with previews beginning July 5th, the new musical will focus on a group of students in Steubenville, Ohio who meet daily to share in their worship of Clay Aiken in an abandoned barn that "doubles as a shrine" to Aiken. For real. The play reaches its climax when the midwest leg of the Idol Tour is announced, and along with the usual performances in Chicago and Memphis, there’s a stop in Steubenville as well. No word on how Clive Davis feels on this one…

Paris Writes Fans, Gabs for Bucks & Kills Her Cat

Apparently 5000 people actually like Paris Hilton. That’s the number of letters the heiress has received while locked up in Lynwood. They must just be all from Nicole Richie asking her what the food’s like. Paris has reportedly been a great pen pal, responding to a bunch of her notes and telling her fans she’s "sad and alone." But don’t let her words fool you. She’s still cold hearted and cruel, according to the latest dirt dished in Page Six. Paris is (possibly) an animal killer! Or at least, that’s what her neighbors are accusing her of today. Seems like they’ll do anything to get the party girl kicked off their block.

Have a Miserable, Cigarette-y Lunch

Ever since the widow Love sold off 25% of Kurt Cobain‘s catalog and licensed his image for use by the National Entertainment Collectibles Association (yes, seriously, such a thing exists), the sadly deceased Nirvana frontman has been popping up in all sorts of places. For example, as pictured here, you can now buy the Kurt Cobain lunchbox, which holds all manner of tasteful suicide sandwiches and needle-drop soups. Kurt has also been memorialized as an action figure and in a key chain that doubles up as a liquor flask, in a move that we suspect was motivated by suits at megacorporations who were wondering if they could get Kurt to kill himself twice. This follows on the heels of Cobain’s image being used in a Doc Marten’s ad, which officially has turned us off British combat boots, like, forever.

Britney: Tantrums Are a Girl’s Best Friend

She may have gone to rehab and changed her partying ways, but Britney’s attitude still stinks. Something set the starlet off recently at shoot for her new perfume, and she reportedly freaked, walked out, and refused to continue working. A source says, "She is not listening to anyone and doing exactly what she wants." This may explain another tidbit of Britsanity, which alleges that she is trying to win back her tank top loving ex, K-Fed. She’s apparently enlisted her mom for help, and pictures show her recently sporting a ridiculously huge diamond on her ring finger. Is this a sign that Spears wants to reconcile? Or does she just love massive bling?

Let’s be real: she better get Kevin back, because there’s no way she can make a decent perfume commercial without his magic arrow shooting skills. What kind of fantasy is it without that hunk of Feder-beef running around in the ad?

Tara Reid Mixes Booze and Booty

Oh Tara. It seems like just last week that you were doing so well, all cleaned up without a nipple in sight. Wait…that was last week. And now, look at you – back to your old routine of getting hammered and making out with whatever comes your way. Your outfit last night (at left) was still cute and classy – for you (though it seems your fake boobs grew back). But then you ended your evening looking all sorts of wasted with a dude in your lap. So what happened? 12 gin and tonics? Oh well. We tried. At least you still have your career. Wait – scratch that.

Paris: 10 Pounds Skinnier and Starving

by

Paris has reportedly lost 10 pounds in jail after refusing to eat. The heiress, who stands tall at 5 feet 8 inches, is allegedly down to 100 pounds. When Nicole hears this, she’ll be volunteering to be locked up before her trial even starts! A source on the inside said that her guards got worried and "threatened to put her on an intravenous drip to rehydrate her and give her some nourishment unless she started eating." She’s since managed to get a few bites down, says the spy, but Paris is still all sorts of messed up: pale, weak and sporting matted hair due to the lack of shampoo in the clink.

This begs the question: what will she look like when she walks free on June 25th? Is the celebutante gonna let the world see her in this kind of disheveled state? Hell, Britney does, so why not, Paris!? Either way, Monday will be her moment of reckoning, when she’ll either head down a path of goodwill and charity fueled by self-help books, or return to her ways of panty flashing and party crashing. But before she does anything, she’ll probably head to In-n-Out Burger first and eat her way back up to 110
pounds.
