Welcome back to Midweek Madness, in which Margaret and I tip the celebrity weeklies after gorging on gossip. This week, when Shiloh isn't tearing Brad and Angie apart, she's clawing at Zahara. And Ashton totally made out with some blonde.
"Teen Mom: I'm Broke"
On the August 17th episode of Teen Mom, Farrah Abraham was the victim of an online scam, and that is the gist of this story — shit that happened on TV last week. Farrah says stuff like: "Usually my parents would help me, but since I'm not talking to them, I have to do this on my own." She says she's not speaking to her mom and her dad has no money. Also, she reveals that she has no idea where to sign a check — she once filled out the dollar amount on the date line. Sad! Farrah says: "I only have one hundred and some dollars right now, and that needs to last me a month." Didn't Ok! buy you lunch or something? And don't you get paid for being on MTV? Anyway. Moving on. Hilary Duff talked to the mag about whether she's gonna get right on having those babies, and it seems as if she is not headed in that direction at the moment. "We want to enjoy ourselves. We have such busy lives, and we spend a lot of time apart. We want to wait at least one more summer for that." Check out this spread in which Ok! tries to prove how celebrity-friendly it is — and reminds us of all the folks they paid for exclusives. These are supposedly the "biggest moments" in the stars' lives… So what are the Twilight "Yes They're In Love" cover, the Kate Gosselin "How I Lost 10 Lbs In 10 Days" cover and Kendra's "My Body After Baby" doing here? (see image 7). Finally: Chris Colfer from Glee had to use the bathroom on set, and the assistant director said, "Oh, the bathroom is right around the corner." But when Chris went to the bathroom, the toilet wouldn't flush and the sink wasn't working… and when he looked up, there was no ceiling. Kurt realized he'd urinated on the set of Monk!
