“I grew up being teased because I have really small arms. I love my arms now. I don’t want big fat arms. I’m a woman, I’m supposed to be nice and dainty,” says the latest of America’s Most Smartest Model‘s booted contestant, Blonde Rachel. And the verbal gems keep rolling. After the jump, Rachel talks about her unceremonious elimination, eating-disorder allegations and the “free porn” she and V.J. provided the camera crew with. Oh yeah, she goes there.
We always enjoy it when actual sentences come out of Heidi Montag‘s mouth, because she spends most of her time on The Hills muttering things like “Yeah!” and “I mean,” and of course “I love Spencer!” All nonsense. But who knew the girl was gonna come forward and reveal that she’s a religious, Bible-reading bookworm who’s like, totally acted in an “old English play?” In an interview in the latest issue of Blender we meet the real Heidi, and if you believe her, Meryl Streep better watch her back. She says:
- She’s a natural actor! “I’ve always been singing. I’ve been dancing since I was 2—hip-hop, jazz, tap, everything. I was a wicked stepsister in Cinderella. I was a fairy in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I was Beatrice in . . . an old English play. Acting, singing, dancing —it’s always been in me.”
- She’s gonna like, totally win one of those statue things. “I also plan to win an Oscar. I’m very ambitious.”
- Her engagement is real, she just hates wearing it because it’s painful and fugly. “I take it off at night because it’s big and I don’t want it getting caught in my hair or scratching my face…”
- She loves Jesus! “I like to read a couple books at once…Right now I’m also reading the Bible, beginning to end. I’m very religious. That’s how I’ve gotten to where I am.”
Ah yes, religion has totally led her to backstab her best friend, fall in love with the devil, and fill her body with plastic so she can pose in various bikinis on a beach. Amen girlfriend!

Natalie Portman Pics
It’s not often that beautiful actors combine mercury-boiling hotness with smarts, but we’ve found our dream girl in Natalie Portman. She burst onto the scene by starring in The Professional at the tender age of 13, then kept her head on her shoulders long enough to earn a college degree — from Harvard, no less. This week’s Hottie has been lauded by mainstream critics as the next Audrey Hepburn while keeping the respect of the ever-important indie dork contingent by playing both Queen Amidala in Star Wars and Zach Braff’s love interest in Garden State. And though Portman’s new flick, Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, is decidedly more PG-13 than her recent bottom-baring turn in Hotel Chevalier (the short-film prequel to Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited), we’re still happy to crown her Hottie of the Week.

Hey President Bush – we have a nomination for the Supreme Court or Attorney General or the House of Smarties (we know you have one dude, come on). It’s America’s
sweet-heart sweet-ho, Kim Kardashian. As we’re sure you know, the second half of a sex tape featuring Kim and singer/Brandy brother Ray J is about to be released, and last week a voicemail message left for Ray J from his former lover was released. In it, Kim is pissed off to the extreme and even ends the thing in a bizarre, ‘I’m about to get murdered’ scream. Amazing.
Turns out, the voicemail is allegedly a fake – staged! – by Ray J and the Dashster. You could kind of tell by the way Kim uses her bedroom voice to tell him over and over how “disgusting” and “desperate” he is. But still, how smart is Kim?! This bag-o-brains is solely responsible for her leap onto the D List. Have you ever seen anyone maneuver a “career” so expertly? Give her five years and she’ll really be on the rise, dating Corey Haim and winning Dancing With the Stars. If you don’t believe us that she’s on her way, think again – her reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians just got picked up for a second season. More drunk driving, stripper shoes and underage pole dancing – hurray!
Kim and Britney Talk Nonsense

Surely Justin Bobby had something thoughtful to say about all the drama between Lauren and Heidi on this week’s episode of The Hills…
…But he was too busy getting hammered on his date with Audrina and busting out some celebratory burps to care. By the way, that tattoo of a pair of scissors on his arm just reminded us that JB is not a grunge model or a professional motorcycle seat warmer, but a hairdresser. Interesting that he felt the need to express his passion for hair fashion on his arm but not on his head.
Under the jump – forgiving and forgetting at its best!
Usually, when Paul McCartney asks you to do something, you do it (we’re looking at you, Heather Mills). Turns out enigmatic Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke doesn’t feel that way. When one half of the most famous songwriting duo in the history of music asked Yorke to duet with him, Yorke turned him down.
In an interview with the UK’s Channel 4, McCartney shared what happened when he tried to make Yorke Michael Jackson to his, uh, McCartney: “My daughter was putting an album together and she put us in touch. I asked Thom to do a duet, but he said he couldn’t because he only felt happy working on his own and Radiohead’s material.”
Which would have been a completely reasonable excuse, had Yorke not gone on to duet with Bjork (“I’ve Seen It All”), German electro outfit Modeselektor (“The White Flash”) and Beck (“I’m Set Free”). What do you think — is Thom too cool for Macca?
