The Nuge Cracks, NRA Enjoys Free Press


nugent.jpgLate last week, gun-toting Republican firebrand Ted Nugent invited Vibe cover star and rising presidential hopeful Barack Obama to suck on his machine gun. Nugent also called Obama “a piece of sh*t.” He nugent.jpgthen invited Hillary Clinton to ride his machine gun into the sunset, and called her “a worthless bitch.” (Click here to watch the footage.)

Helluva guy, that Ted. He must be best friends with Don Imus.

For those of you who don’t remember Nugent, he’s the genius who wrote “Cat Scratch Fever.” He’s also the drooling-lunatic-of-choice when it comes to punditry about gun control. It turns out that Ted’s not in favor of gun control. Go figure. Anyway, in a twist to this story, it turns out that the Nuge was scheduled to play a state fair in South Dakota. The fair’s organizer apparently contacted Nugent’s representative to remind Mr. Man that he would be performing for a family crowd. Ted kept his death-threats in check. But we wish that the fair’s organizer would have asked him to play Harlem instead. We can hope, though. All good things come to those who wait.

Owen Dabbles in Meth, Jesus & Ben Stiller


owen082907.jpgLast week he was everybody’s favorite funny guy, but now Owen Wilson is burning up the tabloids and gossip blogs with talk about what led to his attempted suicide and where the troubled star goes from here. Prior to Sunday’s sad events, Owen supposedly was at the end of a three-day drug binge, using crystal meth and Oxycontin for days before his demise. He also allegedly ingested a bottle of Oxycodone as part of his suicide attempt. The star was spotted three days earlier at church, though we’re not sure how his visit connects tot he events that followed. Maybe he was researching a role – or seeking salvation.

Owen’s also reportedly dropped out of pal Ben Stiller‘s film Tropical Thunder, which he was supposed to begin shooting in a couple of weeks. At least he’s taking care of himself, right? Plus Nick Nolte‘s part of the cast, and he seems like he’d be a really bad influence. [Image: Getty]

The Hills: Lauren Weeps Over Heidi; Spencer’s a Giant Tool in Colorado

But, oh, how all that will change in an instant thanks to a motorcycle helmet, a couch and a Justin Bobby. How cruel is this life?!

Scott Baio Is…Returning



If the finale of Scott Baio Is 45…and Single, in which Scott’s reunited gf Renee revealed that she’s pregnant to a shocked Baio, seemed like a big old cliffhanger it’s because…it was. Scott, Renee and Co., are set to return to VH1 in a new series documenting the next phase in Scott’s life: impending fatherhood, engagement and getting to know Renee’s daughter Caitlyn. The expanded season, which should feature nine episodes (instead of last season’s seven), is set to shoot in the fall. There’s no word yet on when it will air, but you’d be wise to expect an early ’08 run. [The Hollywood Reporter]
