Mary Ellen on Mary Carey

by

“I don’t think I’m as crazy or as wild as Mary Carey is,” says the woman that many in the world know as…Mary Carey. The clip above, in which the cleaned-up Celebrity Rehabber talks about her porn name (it was inspired by Mariah Carey, didn’t you know?) and the confusion that came as a result of it, is an extended extra from Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Addiction Special, which premieres Tuesday, July 1 at 10/9c on VH1. Joining Drew on the special are the likes of Nile Rogers and Mary’s former co-Rehabber, Seth Binzer. On her persona, Mary goes on to reveal, “It’s very confusing, the whole…” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Will Winehouse Make Mandela’s Birthday?

by

What does any venerable world leader want for their 90th birthday? Why, to be serenaded by Amy Winehouse, of course! But will Nelson Mandela get his wish? Yesterday Winehouse missed a photo-call for artists performing at 46664, his 90th birthday celebration in London. The troubled singer opted to visit her incarcerated husband, but did, however, show up for rehearsals, and was “fantastic” according to sources.

In the midst of all this, Rolling Stone released an article detailing the singer’s days of late. Winehouse spoke openly about her husband Blake (“We are so in love, we are a team”), drugs (“I’m young, and I’m in love, and I get my nuts off sometimes”) and her next album (“It’s not so much about recording, it’s about whatever”).

Amy should be hitting the stage right about now for the 46664 concert. Check back for updates!

Exclusive: Bachelor Couple on the Rocks?

by

Although London Calling Bachelor Matt Grant is insisting that all is well with fiancé Shayne Lamas, his alleged behavior at a recent Beverly Hills party has sparked rumors otherwise. On June 12, Matt told People that he had moved out of Lamas’ Century City condo to “keep the spark – the romance – that exists in the first year of a relationship [alive].”

However, just two days later, sources at a poolside bash at the Beverly Hills home of a sports executive revealed that Matt was chatting up actress LaNease Adams, who, ironically, was a contestant on the first-ever Bachelor. (Remember the one with Alex Michel?) Fiancé Shayne, by the way, was nowhere in sight.

“Matt was really into her and spent a lot of time at the party speaking to her,” a partygoer told the VH1 Blog.

Maybe the pair of reality show stars were just talking shop and swapping Bachelor stories…

Xtina RoX the Vote

by

Mama Christina Aguilera appeared on Larry King Live last night to promote her PSA for Rock the Vote.

The “Dirrty” singer revealed to the veteran talk show host that last year was the first year she exercised her right to vote and that she felt “ashamed” for waiting so long. To make up for it, Christina picked up her 5-month-old baby Max Liron, wrapped him in an American flag, and posed for a PSA to promote the organization, which helps register young voters.

Christina, who follows a long line of artists to be the face of Rock the Vote, including Madonna as the first almost 18 years ago, was referred to by Larry as a “soft” singer. Xtina cooly set him straight, letting him knowing that she is actually known for her powerful vocals. Max’s mama will again show off her powerhouse voice when the Rock the Vote PSA is revealed, which features the singer belting out her special version of “America the Beautiful.”

Watch Christina on Larry King after the jump.

Mimi’s Sham Marriage Already a Disaster

by

Mimi better watch who she’s bossing around! Apparently pals (she has friends?!) close to the singing star are placing bets on how long her marriage to Nick Cannon will last, and they’re guessing “six months, tops.” The reason? Nick is stuck doting on his bride 24/7, and allegedly spends more time lugging her shopping bags around than he does cuddling with his older love. A source spills that,

“Mariah’s assistants and friends call him ‘Whipped Nick’ behind his back. They have little respect for him because he won’t stand up for himself.”

Well if he won’t, we will! Mariah, leave your man alone! Otherwise he’ll be leaving you – and fast. [MSNBC]

Say it Isn’t So! More Madonna Divorce Rumors

by


Amid rumors that Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie’s marriage is on the rocks, UK newspaper The Times of London is reporting that Madge has taken a pivotal step on the road to splitsville, meeting with former Beatle Paul McCartney’s divorce attorney, Fiona Shakleton.

Shakleton, aka the “steel magnolia,” was famously doused by water by Heather Mills after securing all but $50 million of an almost $1 billion fortune for McCartney.

Madonna, whose fortune is estimated at $600 million, is believed to have been seeking counsel regarding divorcing her husband of 7 years, whom she married in a lavish ceremony at a castle in Scotland, reportedly with no pre-nup. They have two children, Rocco, 7, and David Banda, almost 3, whose adoption from Malawi was finalized earlier this year. Madonna also is mother to Lourdes, 11, from a previous relationship.

The Times is also reporting that Guy has sought counsel at a lesser known law firm, Forsters.

Watch out Reggie Bush, Kim Kardashian has another man on her mind: James Bond star Daniel Craig. In an interview with UK newspaper, The Sun, Kim reveals,

“I want to be a Bond Girl and film a love scene with Daniel Craig after he’s rescued me.”

In her own version of CASSino Royale, Plenty O’Tush fantasizes,

“I would be drowning, wearing a bikini with a gun in a sachet, and he would dive in and get me – that would be really sexy.”

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who makes her big screen debut in Disaster Movie in December, reveals that her New Orleans Saints boyfriend would probably disapprove. “Reggie would absolutely hate it,” Booty Galore admits.
