Charm School Extra Credit: Un-Happy Birthday Edition

by

This week’s batch of Charm School scenes that didn’t make the episode feature the girls’ favorite pastime: trash talking. The first is an extended cut of Larissa’s exit. She calls Mo’Nique out for not being classy ("I seen a picture of her on the red carpet with hairy legs. That’s not classy.") and has some choice words for Dean Keith, too ("Pee Wee Herman walkin’ around with his little d*** self"). After some heart-string tugging ("I worked my ass off to get where I am in this competition, and I feel like Mo’Nique’s not giving me credit for that"), she really lets it rip with a special birthday greeting for Mo. Larissa promised she’d go out with a bang and bang she did.

The second features Saaphyri reading New York like only Saaphyri can. She talks more smack about New York’s plastic surgery and general appearance ("Half RuPaul, half BeyoncĂ©!"). More impressively than her insults is her insight — she deems New York "a cartoon character that’s alive." Even better is Saaphyri’s explanation why New York does not get to her: "She hit me with all kinds of stuff…but since she’s such a character, it’s like, no problem. I got this." If all of the other girls adopted this attitude, there would have been a lot less trouble on both seasons of Flavor of Love. In the Flavor universe, Saaphyri’s attitude is akin to possessing the secret of joy.

Angelina Jolie spills her guts in the newest issue of Parade Magazine, and what she reveals is great for her and totally depressing for the rest of us "normal folk."

The mother of four claims that in her twenties, her life as an actress was "not really benefitting anyone." Enter in three children from around the globe and one from the most beautiful man alive, and now things are peachy keen. Life is so grand, that the pair are already making plans on how best to enjoy it. Once they finish a few more projects, the two are "going to try to take a year off and just be with the kids."

Video: Angry Akon Tosses Kid Off Stage

The last time we watched video of Akon he was getting all grind-y onstage with a  15 year-old girl. In these new clips circulating the web, he is seen performing at the KFEST 2007 concert when a young boy in the audience throws something at the Senegalese superstar.  Our hip hop hero then does what anyone would do in that situation.  He instructs his bodyguards to bring the boy up onstage, takes off his shirt, hoists the kid over his shoulder, and hurls him into the crowd, to the sound of hyperventilating fans screaming, "We love you!"

Akon, we’ve learned our lesson.  Your stage is like a 20-foot chunk of the Wild West and you’re Jesse James.  There are no rules, and no one is safe.  One wrong move and you’ll be using your super human strength to bust out nasty dances or chuck someone across the country.  So we’ll just stay away and dance awkwardly in the back corner.  Oh, and keep your shirt on. Please?

Minnillo & Lohan: Knife Partners

by

While yesterday’s photos of Lindsay Lohan playing with knives caused a bit of a stir, it seemed nothing out of the ordinary for the dutchess of dysfunction. Knowing Linds, she probably takes bizarre knife pictures a few times a day. Yet the identity of her sexy partner in crime was revealed today as none other than wholesome ex-TRL host Vanessa Minnillo, making the pics way more interesting (and maybe a little hot).

More on the ladies’ knife tricks, after the jump!

The Quotable T-Pain

by

Tpain_interview

T-Pain‘s music paints him as something of a player, as he falls in love with strippers and partakes in one-night stands (after buying a girl only one drink!). His home life is actually much different — he’s been married for two years. When asked about how his wife feels about his musical persona, the man sometimes known as Teddy Penderazdoun said this:

"My wife doesn’t mind. All the money goes back to her. And that, she don’t mind at all."

Nice that she can be bought so easily. Love don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that bling. In addition to the divide between his music and his home life, T-Pain also sees a divide between his music and image — he may sound smooth on record, but in reality, he’s chunky. "I’m not trying to be Mr. Six-Pack," he says. And as this recent shot (source) proves…

Rock at the Movies: Idols and Idols

by

Kat_mcphee__album_cover – The Dylan biopic I’m Not There — starring Heath Ledger, Christian Bale, Richard Gere and Cate Blanchett as Bob Dylan (yes, all of them) — gets the Subterranean Homesick Blues treatment with this movie poster.

- "Idol" may not have wanted her for the finale, but Katharine McPhee is ready for her indie close-up. She’s set to star in The Last Caller, and she’ll play a "self-obsessed woman who searches for love, hope and meaning during a few random events with other urban seekers."

- Who gets the biopic treatment twice over? The Candy Man does. Outkast’s Andre 3000 is slated to star as Sammy Davis, Jr. in Sammy and Kim, while Denzel Washington will star in and direct In Black and White.

Brit’s Battle With Men o’ War

by

Britowar

Britney Spears took some time out over the weekend during her Mexican beach vacation to warn her fellow sunbathers of an epidemic facing them: Portuguese men ‘o war. A source told People that she approached an older couple and said, "Be careful, there are lots of man o’ war jellyfish washing up on shore, you don’t want to get stung." OK, Grandma Spears. Why not go all out and tell them to put on their jackets so as not to catch cold?

The source adds that Britney was "sweet" and seemed "happy and carefree" on the beach. It’s nice to see that she’s bouncing back after hitting rock bottom. It’s amazing what peeing in the ocean can do to lift spirits! [People / Image credit: Getty]

Actually, It Is How You Play The Game

by

070515_game_2 It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the Game — or, in this case, how the Game plays you. During a pick-up basketball game in February, the Game (born Jayceon Taylor) got into a fight with a player on the opposing team. Demonstrating good sense and a healthy outlook on conflict resolution, the 27-year-old allegedly punched the offending player and went to his car (red Cadillac Escalade, natch), grabbed a gun and threatened to shoot the dude. Yesterday he was charged with making a criminal threat, possession of a firearm in a school zone and exhibiting a firearm in the presence of an officer. He was not, however, charged with bad taste or wanton display of public dumbness. (He’s not exactly remorseful.) He’s being arraigned today. If convicted, he faces up to five years in the pen.
