The skinniest pregnant lady in the world goes to trial for her DUI charge tomorrow morning at 8:30 AM on the dot. This comes after Nicole’s lawyer begged the court today to push the start date back to August 5th so some fancy drug expert could be present. But this judge is thankfully as awesome as the one who sent Paris to the clink, and the request was a no-go. TMZ reports that Nicole and her belly flew to Canada last night to be with boyfriend Joel Madden, who is on tour with his band Good Charlotte. Let’s hope she has some frequent flyer miles to kill, as she’s got less than 24 hours to get back to the States. She should also rub that belly of hers for luck – if she’s convicted of her second DUI she must serve a minimum of five days behind bars. And now – let the Nicole Richie Trial Watch officially begin!
The premiere episode of Rock of Love with Bret Michaels debuted today on VSPOT (its network premiere will be this Sunday, July 15, at 9/8c), and oh my god, is it amazing. But don’t take our word for it (since we do, you know, work at the company responsible for the show): below are two clips from the premiere so you witness the craziness yourself. The first segment provides the show’s set up (basically: a house full of rocker girls with big boobs and long blonde hair are vying for the affection of a rock star dude with…long blonde hair) and introduces you to said girls and said rock star (that’d be Bret Michaels of Poison fame). The second clip below shows just how rowdy the party gets as Bret mingles with all 21 women that are competing to win his rock of love. Keep an eye on Tiffany. She’s extremely special.
Some other notable things about this show:
- As the latest entry in the Flavor of Love universe, Rock of Love is where things come full circle. See, Flavor of Love was basically conceived and played out as a parody of The Bachelor — a huge part of its appeal was the inherent ridiculousness arising from the fact that a gaggle of women were gagging over Flavor Flav, who doesn’t exactly live up to the standard of male beauty, to say the least. It is, however, conceivable that women would fawn over Bret Michaels, who’s been a sex symbol throughout his career. And so it happens: you can tell that most of the girls on Rock of Love are seriously into him, meaning that there’s a straightforward dating show at the heart of Rock‘s wild exterior. And it’s all the more absurd for it.
- Case and point to that last statement is Bret’s objective (stated in the top clip above): "Rock and roll is an insatiable bitch goddess. But I love her. And I’m just looking for that one woman in my life to participate in that threesome."
- You’ll notice that the first segment does not feature Bret handing out nicknames to his potential girlfriends in the style of Flavor of Love and I Love New York. With a Rodeo, a Dallas, a Raven, a Kristia, a Tawny (Tawny!), and two freakin’ Brandi’s (two!), these girls don’t need any help with their names.
- This show is, quite simply, a prolonged exercise in extreme human behavior. It’s amazing on a scientific level. Rock of Love looks you in the eye and threatens you with a good time. How many other shows can lay that claim?
Hit VSPOT for the rest of the premiere episode of Rock of Love.
For those of you who thought the age of the "Sensitive Man" was dead, think again. Ryan Seacrest is bringing it back full force. The Americal Idol host went into detail on his radio show Monday morning, describing the blubbering sesh he had while watching Eva Longoria and Tony Parker share their first dance together as husband and wife. And no, he didn’t imagine it, he was actually at the wedding – as a guest. Say what? "I am crying," he stated, reliving his reaction to the couple. "Then Tony dipped Eva right then and there, pulled her back up and gave her a kiss."
Who knew guys actually noticed these things? Ah – but all men are not Ryan Seacrest. He continued to describe watching this scene with fellow (female) guests Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman and Jessica Alba: "They are smiling and I am a disaster."
Yes. Yes, you are. I for one am insulted that you’ve made it through six seasons of American Idol without shedding a tear. What kind of gentle, tender, sweet man are you?
In the latest screen-to-stage move, ’80s cult fave Desperately Seeking Susan is being turned into a West End Musical. Downtown icon Debbie Harry of Blondie fame has penned one new song for the play, “Moment of Truth,” and the score will include Blonide hits “Tide Is High,” “Heart of Glass” and “One Way Or Another.” The film, which epitomized New York’s East Village culture at the time, was Madonna‘s acting debut and remains one of her only tolerable film performances. The play opens October 12th at London’s Novello Theater.
Avril Lavigne is getting a lot of heat these days, and it’s still kinda unclear if it’s warranted or not. Today’s latest accusation against the pop punk princess is that she’s ripped off a song by electroclash queen Peaches. You can check it out and take a listen for yourself. Sure they sound similar, but it’s doubtful that Peaches is the first artist to ever rap lyrics over an electronic drumbeat. Anyone with a computer can do that these days. What really should be in question are the lyrics of this Avril song. "I’m the one who’s got the prance" just doesn’t seem to go along with all that hardcore punk plaid and middle finger thrusting. We look forward to seeing what "the one who wears the pants" has to say about this latest finger point in her direction. Any comment, Avs?
Madonna reportedly issued a weird decree to U.S. reporters backstage at Live Earth: they were to never break eye contact with her as they interviewed her. They were told that the simple act of looking down to check their notes would cause the interview to be canceled. One anonymous source said: “It’s intimidating enough interviewing Madonna, because she’s so intense, but when we were given these weird orders it was even worse. We thought her people were just joking. But it soon became apparent that they were deadly serious.”
The crazy thing about her demand is that a tenant of diva behavior is to demand that underlings avoid eye contact. But that’s Madonna for you: constantly digging up new ways to be a pain in the ass. The woman is an innovator.
But really, I think she wanted people to maintain eye contact so that they’d stay still long enough for her to catch them with the spider legs she had attached to her face in the place of eyelashes.
Terrifying, right? [Mirror.co.uk / Image credit: Getty]
Thick-browed vixen in red, Sienna Miller is once again denying romantic involvement with Diddy — kind of. Rumors of the two’s private diddling picked up speed when it was announced that Diddy and his baby mama Kim Porter were splitting — just days before Sienna and Diddy were said to be canoodling at a Concert for Diana afterparty. Not so, the blonde controversy magnet reportedly revealed:
"I am in love with someone but not Puff Daddy. He’s just a good friend. Anyway he has a beautiful girlfriend."
Notice how she uses his old name, which means she could in fact be dating Diddy, P. Diddy, Sean Combs, Sean "Puffy" Combs, puff pastry, a puffy shirt, Diddy Kong, ’90s U.K. dance sensation Diddy or a game of Tiddly Winks. Furthermore, since Kim’s out of the picture, Sienna could very well be referring to herself when she says "beautiful girlfriend." That outfit and those eyebrows could only be rocked by someone convinced of their own hotness. [Zee News / Image credit: Getty]
Yesterday we told you how Daniel Radcliffe (aka Harry Potter) had himself a man-crush on funnyman Seth Green. Well, it seems that the premiere was a lovefest. Rising pop tart Miley Cyrus (aka Hannah Montana) attended the L.A. screening of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, too. She told VH1 New she was there to catch Harry’s eye. Everyone loves a little wizard on the red carpet!
50 Cent is just a traditional guy who likes to woo ladies the old-fashioned way – taking them out to dinner surrounded by an entourage. Sound strange? Not to Ciara, who’s recently been seen getting cozy with the hip hop star. The two hit up the Brentwood Restaurant and Lounge in LA and got romantic at a table for two, as ten of 50′s pals and bodyguards protected the pair’s privacy from a second table close by. The group arrived and left in a flurry of pricey cars, including 50′s Lamborghini. Not a bad catch for the 21-year old singer, who worked with 50 (who is 10 years her senior) on her single "Can’t Leave ‘Em Alone." Looks like she was singing about her experience dating 50 – and his always present posse. When you’re worth millions upon millions of dollars, it can’t hurt having a little extra protection around, right? Let’s just hope he locks them out of his bedroom when there’s a lady between his sheets.
