Yesterday, after the premiere of this week’s episode of Charm School, we received an email from Schatar with the subject, "I’m Pissed as all %$##@!!!" Inside, was a letter and the request that it be posted on this blog. And really, who are we to deny her? The full text follows:
Let’s keep it real. The judges should have kept it
tight and reviewed the film the same way they did for
the etiquette segment.
My character was defamed. This was obvious and clear
bias. I was crucified – hung on an emotional cross!
Hugs don’t get it. We are out here in the real world.
I demand a PUBLIC APOLOGY from the girls and the
judges, televised on VH1 and I demand my own Shopping
Couture with Schatar from the VH1 network
At a minimum, Mo’Nique should have said, "Schatar if I
am wrong about this, I will offer you an opening act
on tour with me, the way I offered Goldie to go on
tour with me and implied assistance to Krazy about her
My millions of fans would appreciate a publicized
apology from the judges and the girls on the reunion
Also, VH1 can develop and air a show starring me
called Shopping Couture with Schatar. I would look
forward to collaborating with a reputable production
company contracted with VH1 to develop and bring this
show starring me to air within the next 6 months.
Larissa masterminded an cruel (and successful) plot to frame Schatar for stealing — and both Schatar and Darra got the boot. "If I have falsely accused someone," warned headmistress Mo’Nique. "I have to deal with that." Will karma catch up with Larissa? Or will she get away with her shenanigans? Weigh in now, and check back soon for our official recap.
Now and then our Tour Survival Guide will check in with rockers on the road. Here’s The Bravery singer Sam Endicott on the power of Red Bull, Tokyo bathroom etiquette, and disappointing methods of birth control.
Semper Fi, Guys We asked for extra-large condoms [on our tour rider]. Like the largest condoms possible. I was hoping we’d get XXL condoms or something, but I guess they don’t really make those. The biggest you can get are Trojans. They max out at Trojan Magnums. That’s as exciting as it gets.
No Caramel Macchiato For You! I basically live off Red Bull. I wake up in the morning and drink a Red Bull. I need as much caffeine as possible, and I can’t drink coffee, because coffee is just disgusting to me. I hate the taste of it. Like whenever I walk into a Starbucks I want to vomit. So I drink Red Bull all day. We actually have a Red Bull sponsorship. We call and they’ll send cases of Red Bull anywhere we want.
Extra TV is reporting that multiple sources have confirmed Jessica Simpson and John Mayer have parted ways after nine undoubtedly musical months. Awwww. But they seemed to have so much in common and looked so happy together!
Because of the shocking nature of this story, we have nothing to add. Really: a national tragedy is what this is. [ExtraTV.com / Image credit: Getty]
Our ramp-up to Rock Honors (Thursday, May 24) always includes revealing chats with the music’s stars. Road Tales focuses on some the silliness (and sex) that goes down when artists are on tour.
Luther Campbell is no stranger to sexual hijinks. But even the boss of the infamous 2 Live Crew had to shake his head when a swarm of ladies in uniform jumped on stage and started rocking the wild thing at a club gig. Let him explain it to you…
No Threesome for Brad & Angie Star mag’s report that Victoria’s Secret model Karolina Kurkova "was the filling in a Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie cannoli" is absolutely bogus. Why does the media have such a dirty mind? We think the Hollywood duo was just adopting her. [Gawker]
Mary-Kate + Ashley = Bond Girls? Producers of Bond 22 are reportedly courting the nubile twins. Maybe Daniel Craig will be the lucky filling in an all-Olsen cannoli. [dlisted]
No Appeal: Paris Cool With Jail The valiant "Free Paris" campaign has officially been crushed and the socialite will report to jail by June 5. Note to clubs: Prepare for a month in the red. [Yahoo!]
I don’t blame you if 50 Cent isn’t exactly your point person for intuition and eloquence. This is, after all, a man who thinks nothing of combining childhood imagery (candy shops, amusement parks) with raunch, a man who will "whip your head, boy," a man who thinks he’s doing you a favor when he says, "I’ll let you lick my d***."
It was, then, a great surprise when, during a press conference Wednesday, Fiddy stepped up his insight after being grilled about the initiative to remove those three infamous words from hip-hop. The rapper won’t be censoring himself any time soon, and here’s his explanation why:
Canadian mall-punk princess Avril Lavigne wasn’t quite as topless on the cover of Blender as we’d hoped . . . er, believed. She told MTV News that she was wearing a tube top, which the magazine covered up with a strategically placed coverline. That’s OK, though: It’s all part of a campaign to rehabilitate the singer’s image. She wants to be all dangerous now. Consider: "The Blender shoot was really fun because it was super rock and roll — we had a bottle of [whiskey] and ate cupcakes." This, of course, makes tons of sense since it is difficult to get more rock and roll than cupcakes. Also making sense? Her desire to act: "I would want to go for a more serious drama, something darker that would take a lot of emotion." That’s because someone must have told her that her cameo in Fast Food Nation was a good part of that film. And that person is a bad friend.
