Shocker: Model Is Stressed, Bloated
By PopCultureWhore








Fading supermodel Amber Valletta has checked herself into rehab due to “work stress” and “image issues.” Christ, if I went to rehab every time I felt stressed or fat, I’d be permanently hospitalized. Do you remember when Amber and fellow supermodel Shalom Harlow hosted MTV’s “House of Style” in the mid-1990’s? They took over the reigns from Cindy Crawford and made Cindy look like Meryl Streep.

Amber (looking bored): Hey everyone. Welcome to House of Style. Today we’re going to look at some super cute jackets. Right Shalom?
Shalom: Right Amber.
Amber: Great. So let’s look at those jackets.
(They look at those jackets)
Shalom: This is really cute.
Amber: Totally.
Shalom: Wasn’t Donatella wearing this on the yacht last week?
Amber: Totally.
(Somewhere, off to the side, Todd Oldham quietly takes his own life)
Shalom: Well, that’s all we have time for today. Remember to make fashion work for you.
Amber: Totally.

YouTube is sadly lacking in selections from the Amber/Shalom HOS days. Someone needs to upload that comedic gold pronto. I vaguely remember Shalom working out on a treadmill with Gwen Stefani right after No Doubt made its debut.

Danity Cocaine
By PopCultureWhore



















In response to the “frenzy” surrounding Danity Kane’s debut album, some executive in a press release has likened the phenomenon to “Danity Co-Kane” because “people are fiendin for it!” Seriously? Actually, Danity Cocaine would’ve been an awesome name, but they probably could’ve only pulled it off with BoomKat as the sixth member (come on Diddy, you know you want to) Posted by Picasa

J'Lo Baby Rumor #432
By PopCultureWhore

















Is J Lo expecting a baby Skeletor? Tween singer Jesse McCartney was on an Atlanta radio show yesterday promoting his new album, when discussions moved to girlfriend Katie Cassidy, who was just cast as Lucy Ewing in the “Dallas” movie. When the DJ’s asked Jesse why J Lo had been fired from the film, he responded, “She didn’t get fired. She’s pregnant.” Brilliant move, kid. We’ve been on this emotional roller coaster before, however, so hold off awhile before you purchase those bedazzled Juicy baby blankets and ship them off to Miss Thang’s Miami mansion. I don’t know where this picture came from, by the way, but I imagine it has something to do with why she is now knocked up.

William H. Rockstar
By PopCultureWhore






















William H. Macy thinks Lindsay Lohan needs her ass kicked. Not something I expected to be writing tonight, but I thoroughly enjoyed doing so. The "Fargo" star and wife Felicity Huffman star with Lohan in the upcoming movie "Bobby" and Macy says the tartlet “was pretty late” to the set. “A lot of actors show up late as if they're God's gift to the film. It's inexcusable, and they should have their asses kicked." He thinks giving young kids millions of dollars is “too much power for a kid that age to handle.” He acknowledged that Lohan is a “huge talent” but basically thinks she’s a spoiled brat. That’s awesome. William H. Macy has officially replaced India’s Central Board of Film Certification as my favorite whore.

Cammie Goes Dark
By PopCultureWhore





















Cameron Diaz dyed her black, y’all. It looks ok, but I like it in the way I liked Ashlee Simpson’s darker hair. Once she dyed it back to platinum blond, I realized the black hair looked like crap. The new nose didn’t hurt much either, of course.

Greetings fellow whores. I actually got my technological act together and purchased the rights to popculturewhore.com and have linked it to this blog. So you can now just type in popculturewhore.com rather than the pcwnyc.blogspot.com address for quicker access to the pop culture minutae you crave. Savor it like Britney with a bag of Cheetos. Posted by Picasa

"Like A Fat Minnie Mouse"
By PopCultureWhore


















“Sister Act” star Kathy Najimy is in a tizzy over last week’s episode of “Project Runway.” The challenge was to create clothes out of recycled materials and pixie Alison was voted off for making an outfit that made her model look “zaftig,” as Tim put it. During the judging, Heidi said the creation made the model looked “plus sized” and later said during deliberations that she resembled a “fat Minnie Mouse” because of the bow-shaped hairdo. Najimy wrote to her friend and PR product Andy Cohen to voice her displeasure, saying such comments were dangerous to young girls looking to emulate those on TV and that “plus sized” is not a dirty word. I guess I’d agree, but this is the fashion industry, kiddo. Vogue’s annual “shape issue” had Angelina Jolie in their “curvy” section for God’s sake. Cohen posted Najimy’s letter on his blog and told her to watch last night’s episode, which featured the designers creating outfits for their moms and sisters, all of whom were pleasantly plump.

Paramount Loses Its Greatest Asset
By PopCultureWhore















Paramount has let “one of your greatest assets walk out the door” by severing ties with Tom Cruise’s production company, according to Cruise’s camp. Crazy pant’s production partner, Paula Wagner, is taking the high school approach and claiming that Paramount did not fire Cruise – he quit! “There must be another agenda that the studio has in mind to take one of their greatest assets and malign him in this way,” Paula says. Yes, that agenda would be to make money and not have to deal with the egotistical yammerings of a nut job. Has Katie developed post-partum yet?

Don't Jump!
By PopCultureWhore




















Madonna’s concert in Moscow might move from a local university to a nearby airfield due to safety issues. Organizers fear that students might fall from dorm windows in an attempt to get a free peak at the Sept. 11 show. That’s one way to weed out the scholastically challenged. But I can see it happening. Back in the day, Blink 182 came to my college as part of the now defunct MTV show FANatic that surprised ultimate fans with impromptu concerts from their favorite bands. No one on my floor even liked Blink 182, but it was a boring night in February, so we totally tried to sneak around the soccer field in the dark in order to get a glimpse of their show. Security guards with SUV’s, big flashlights and dogs kept us at bay, however.

Red Lipstick Does the Trick
By PopCultureWhore
















Christina Aguilera is number one on the Billboard charts with "Back to Basics" selling approximately 342,000 copies in its first week. Here she is during rehearsals for her "Good Morning America" performance last week. Can my favorite whores Danity Kane knock Christina out of that spot next week? Probably not, but if BoomKat's on the case, you never know. The New York Times called them "occasionally effective" in an article that questioned whether or not to murder Paris Hilton and K-Fed, so I'd say they're on their way.

Brats Collide!
By PopCultureWhore





















It was veritable who’s who of the rich and useless at the 23rd birthday party for “Princes of Malibu” star Brody Jenner. It was hosted at L.A. nightclub Privilege and attracted the likes of Nicky Hilton, Stavros Niarchos and Jack Osbourne. Tara Reid was also in attendance (duh), accompanied by the unibomber and sporting jeans that looked to have a removable crotch. Jenner’s ex Kristin Cavallari also showed up, but he left with “friend” Nicole Ritchie. I’m sorry, but there’s no way he did anything except drive her home, pat her on the head and then call Kristin. Seriously, she looks like a 12-year-old. I'm in denial and I'm staying there.

America's Next Top Wedding Singer?
By PopCultureWhore












I know many of you have been on the edge of your seat waiting to find out exactly what Broadway show “America’s Next Top Model” Adrianne Curry hopes to join. Turns out it’s “The Wedding Singer” … appropriate, I guess, given her recent stint as the psycho bride of a graying Brady. But am I the only one who was a little puzzled at the idea of turning an Adam Sandler movie into a Broadway musical? I seriously thought it was a joke. I guess Adrianne would be a good fit for the airhead that leaves Sandler’s character at the altar, but leave it well enough alone already. Adrianne’s blog was posted a week ago, though, and she wrote that producers were supposed to have notified her by Monday. There’s been no update since, so perhaps it was not meant to be. Sob.

Teens Shielded from Brit’s “Assets”
By PopCultureWhore





















Tokyo officials apparently aren’t reading U.S. celebrity blogs because they think pictures of a pregnant, naked Britney Spears are too “stimulating” for Japanese teens. Editors for the Japanese version of Harper’s Bazaar wanted to display the pictures of its October cover girl at a subway station for about a week, but the Tokyo Metro put the smack down on that idea. "We thought some of our customers would find it to be overly stimulating," said a Tokyo Metro official. I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that teenage boys are not really turned on by pictures of pregnant women. If anything, it could serve as a deterrent to marrying backup dancers and procreating before age 25. Not to worry – Tokyo will still get its Britney fix. The picture will go on display, but she’ll be covered from her elbow down with a note that reads, “"We apologize for hiding part of a beautiful image of a mother-to-be.”
