Keyboard player Stephen Bier is laying a big-ass suit today on the shock rocker and his managers, accusing Manson of squandering away money owed to Bier and his band-mates on some bizarre buys. In an email to Page Six, Bier’s lawyer alleges that the millions of dollars the band earned together were instead spent by Manson on “sick and disturbing purchases of Nazi memorabilia and taxidermy (including the skeleton of a young Chinese girl).” In addition, the rocker blew the money on a massive home, an enormous engagement ring for now ex-wife Dita Von Teese, and their extravagant wedding in Ireland. It makes sense that all those things would cost a ton, but what is the price tag on a skeleton? And is there any reason at all to buy it? Splurging makes a lot more sense when it’s on bling, not bones. [NY Post. Image: Getty]

A bunch of celebrities are down in St. Tropez causing trouble, and man-hopping Penelope Cruz seems to be at the heart of it all. First, the sexy Spanish actress (who apparently needs to cool down her hotness with a fan) was spotted holding hands with the very married Bono. The U2 singer’s wife quickly swooped in, and the rocker’s boat took off from the French Riviera shortly after her arrival . But Penelope stayed behind and was later spotted with Diddy on his yacht, headed toward his bedroom. She then showed up the next day with the rap mogul at the Nikki Beach Club, in the same dress as she had been wearing the night before. Penelope Cruz is doing the

Just like Nicole’s baby, another obviously true rumor is finally official. Whoopi Goldberg is the new moderator/co-host of The View. Rosie who? The announcement was followed by a big lovefest amongst the new quartet of BFFs, with Elisabeth and Joy cooing over Whoopi’s arrival. Apparently Babs had also wanted to announce Sherri Shepherd as the fifth chat-lady, but her contract negotiations fell through when ABC was not willing to pay her $2 million, which is reportedly what Whoopi will earn for one year. Sherri could still join the group, but ABC is also checking out other options. How about Michael Lohan?

When VH1 News caught up with Mr. “Lazy Sunday,” he explained why, exactly, he was looking forward to the release of the film: Because it would help him get girls. So it goes, people.
Beyoncé apparently is a big fan of females.

But do you really B? What about that Umbrella-sharing songstress, Rihanna? Those rumors of her getting cozy with your man Jay-Z just haven’t let up. You know, like rain.
Today’s news of Britney’s Dorito-filled, ice cream-soothing, Coke-through-nipple parenting tickled the trash fiend in me. But really, why should she stop there?

Isla Fisher is the pregnant bride-to-be of British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, but let us be the first to say that he’s getting away with something. The red-headed beauty is the female lead in Hot Rod (which has our nomination, besides Knocked Up, as being the summer’s other funniest movie), which is all the more remarkable because of her upbringing. Fisher is the daughter of Scottish parents, but she was born in Oman, raised in Australia and currently lives in England. And despite how Hot Rod‘s funnymen might make her look, there’s not a white-trash bone in her body. That’s just one of the reasons why she’s our Hottie of the Week.
