Fights in Hollywood are nothing out of the ordinary, but when it’s two comedians busting heads, something is definitely goin’ down! Take the latest run-in between SNL alum Jon Lovitz and infamous addict and all-around crazy guy Andy Dick at LA comedy club the Laugh Factory. Jamie Masada, owner of the club, described the beatdown: "Jon picked Andy up by the head and smashed him into the bar four or five times, and blood started pouring out of his nose." Wow – it sounds just like a really bad fight in some crappy comedy movie.
Sadly there’s nothing funny about the history behind the battle. Lovitz blames Dick for the death of his BFF, funnyman Phil Hartman,
for it was Andy who hooked up Hartman’s wife Brynn with cocaine after
she had been sober for ten years (a moved that reportedly angered Phil). She then killed Hartman and herself a
few months later. When Lovitz later filled his late friend’s shoes on News Radio,
he "told Andy, ‘I wouldn’t be here now if you hadn’t given Brynn that
The first clips from the much-talked about Bob Dylan biopic I’m Not There have leaked, and Cate Blanchett’s Bob impression is downright spooky. The scene imagines the first meeting between Dylan and Allen Ginsberg, played by David Cross. Blanchett’s one of six actors depicting the Voice of a Generation, along with Christian Bale, Heath Ledger and Richard Gere. The film was supposed to hit theaters in September, but rumor has it that it will probably be delayed until next year.
You probably don’t remember Faith faith from the first episode of Rock of Love. Pretty and sweet-voiced, she didn’t make herself known by humping Bret, playing with her boobs, bickering with the other girls or general drunkenness. Until now (at least in the last case — we’re still holding out for a nipple tweak).
The unaired clip below features Faith tipsily stumbling around the house with no other girls in sight (maybe they’d all passed out at this point?). She cheerfully threatens us with a good time ("Do you want a reality? Seriously?") and then delivers, going from pleasant to belligerent over the course of the mesmerizing 6-minute clip. The highlight comes a suddenly camera-shy Faith demands that a crew member stop "promoting" her. "Do you have any insanity to you? Do you have any humanity to you? Is that collaborative to you? It is." It would appear that ain’t bitch no bad enough to step front in her face, either.
Anyway, this clip reiterates two things that we already knew: 1) Drunk girls rule. 2) Rock of Love could very well be the reason that television was invented. Enjoy.
Paris was spotted getting cuddly (and sandy) on the beach in Malibu this weekend with an Australian surfer named Tyler Atkins. The pair played with the heiress’ new puppy and examined tattoos on Tyler’s body before supposedly making out like crazy. In true Paris form she rocked a bikini and big black heels, tip toeing along that fine line between rich LA girl hot and drag queen hot.
Atkins is a 21-year old Australian t-shirt designer who is pals with Paris’ surfing instructor – the same guy who is also dating her BFF. He basically looks like a Down Under knockoff of Stavros. To really get to know this surfer dude, check out his MySpace page and these two YouTube interviews (linked below), in which he says "heavy" ten thousand times and dishes on his move to LA, the time he got busted at the airport with traces of cocaine on his guitar, and the famous young starlet who drugged him and "forced" him into a threesome. Any guesses on who that might be?
Good Charlotte rocker (and alleged Nicole Richie babydaddy) Joel Madden has finally put everyone’s mind at ease and addressed the biggest rumor that’s circulating these days: he’s never even heard of the baby boutique Petit Tresor. The boutique was early on cited as the source point for the the near-hysterical speculation as to whether Madden’s waifish girlfriend Nicole Richie is pregant or not. Madden goes on to mention he hasn’t smoked in a week. Thanks for nothing, Joel.

The Destiny’s Child star turned solo artist took a tumble while performing at a concert in Nigeria this weekend.

Diddy‘s left a trail of baby mama’s in his ladykillin’ wake, and it’s about to take a big toll on his bank account. The NY Post revealed that the mogul already pays ex Misa Hylton-Brim around $30, 000 a month in child support for their son Justin. But now the newly single Sean Combs may end up dishing out a big bundle of cash each month to support the three kids he has with recent ex Kim Porter. Divorce lawyer Raoul Felder
told the paper: "With Misa Hylton-Brim receiving approximately $30,000 a month, there
is no reason that Ms. Porter shouldn’t be able to get close to $100,000
or more per month in child support. That amount accounts for Porter having three children
with Combs and inflation in the years since Misa received the ruling in
But for now though it seems Diddy ain’t worried about his dough, cuz he’s got better things to think about – like the hot blonde who was spotted on his arm at his "All White Diddy Affair" in Baltimore Friday night. Who needs to worry about child support when there are ladies to mack? [NY Post, TMZ]
In what could easily go down as the creepiest pic of the week, Jessica Simpson (with her parents and hairdresser Ken Paves in tow) gives us her best O mouth while watching models debut her new swimwear line in Miami. The bathing suits, which Jess says she is "beyond excited" about, range in style "from all-American girl to bohemian." At the fashion show, Jess got so worked up she exclaimed, "I don’t even know what to do with myself!" Shutting that mouth would probably be a good start.
More pics of bikinis, Kim Kardashian and Papa Joe Simpson – under the cut!
