Miley Cyrus' Opening Number Is BANANAS

Miley Cyrus started her Bangerz tour yesterday and it looks...interesting. If her opening number is any indication, this concert pretty much encapsulates everything we've seen Miley do in the past several months: underwear as outerwear, sinister-looking stuffed animals, a little person carrying a photo of Britney… » 2/15/14 11:30am 2/15/14 11:30am

Alyson Hannigan Stretched Once and Now She's Anorexic Because Tabloids


The latest lie-turd that Star Magazine's pinched off involves Alyson Hannigan "starving herself" down to 98 pounds. Says an "insider" (a crazed and jealous Alexis Denishof fan?

Amanda Bynes ‘Aided’ by Sleazy Sam Lutfi, Britney's Former Manager

This is not good. Sam Lufti, best known as the bizarre and controlling former manager of 2007 brokedown-palace edition Britney Spears, has got his claws into Amanda Bynes. Apparently he bought her the plane ticket back to L.A. after the bong-throwing incident and she's spoken to him on the phone since she was placed on … » 7/29/13 9:00am 7/29/13 9:00am

Zoe Saldana Totally Fine With Her Weight Being on the Cover of Allure

So here's a thing! Zoe Saldana's Allure cover prints her weight like she's a slab of nova at the Zabar's fish counter. The dek under her name reads: "115 pounds of grit and heartache." (The rest of the dek: "—117.6 pounds after quinoa lunch; 114 pounds after bikram yoga, 0.00 pounds in space" — was cut for design… » 5/16/13 9:00am 5/16/13 9:00am

Martha Stewart So Regrets Not Banging Paul Newman and Robert Redford

Match.com enthusiast Martha Stewart cannot, for the life of her, remember why she didn't try to go down to Pound Town back in her days as a preppy young thing who worked at a pastry shop outside a Ralph Lauren store in Connecticut and occasionally sold Hubbell Gardner scones or whatever.

Sometimes-actress, always-perfectly-symmetrical-faced-human being Jessica Alba wrote a book called The Honest Life: Living Naturally and True to You. She is marketing it as "like GOOP, but for Poors like you and me." » 3/22/13 9:00am 3/22/13 9:00am

Have Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts Gone From BFFs to Frenemies?

IMHO, Naomi Watts has always been the more endearing half of the blonde, icy "Aussie Posse" best-friend duo that includes herself and Nicole Kidman. Watts, who got a Lead Actress Academy Award nod for her role in The Impossible, is filming a 60 Minutes CBS segment as part of their pre-Oscars nominee special. But when… » 2/05/13 9:00am 2/05/13 9:00am

Christina Milian Insists that Chris Brown Is Still Dating Karrueche…

For reasons that escape me, Christina Milian has inserted herself into the whole Chris Brown/Rihanna are-they-or-aren't-they bore-nado (that's like a tornado but boring, OKAY???) and told Wendy Williams that Brown is still dating his ex Karrueche Tran. For her part, Rihanna appears to have confirmed her singleness on… » 12/18/12 8:00pm 12/18/12 8:00pm

The Kardashian Christmas Card Looks Like a Tampon Ad

I think it was Tolstoy who wrote, "Happy families are all alike, but Kardashians are all different kinds of bacterial strains of fame-grubber." Here is their Christmas card, which features dearly departed Persian kitten Mercy (RIP) sitting unhappily in something that looks like it came from Ikea and is maybe called a… » 12/18/12 9:00am 12/18/12 9:00am
