Junkie of the Month
By PopCultureWhore





















The stars have a new place to do lines of coke off each others' stomachs. And it looks like Jessica Simpson might have gotten first dibs on the powdery goodness. She and a few other celebs like Avril and Dave Navarro, as well as red carpet whore Kristen Cavallari were spotted at the opening of Area in LA. It's the brainchild of Brent (above with the corpse bride), who fans of "The Hills" might remember as Heidi's boss at Bolthouse Productions ("You didn't get me a drink with my sandwich!") Seriously, the more I look at the Jessica picture, the more frightened I become.

Dad Of the Year!
By PopCultureWhore





















Biggest diss? Rod Stewart tells daughter Kim that she doesn’t compare to Paris. “I’m always accusing my daughter of trying to be Paris Hilton,” he tells Blender magazine. Ouch. If I were her, I’d respond, “Just like you’re trying to pretend Rachel Hunter didn’t dump your ass by marrying someone who looks just like her?” Meanwhile, when Kim wanted to go on tour with Cisco Adler’s band Whitestarr, Rod’s only conditions were that Kim acquire her own hotel room and purchase a return ticket. “You don’t want to end up sharing a bed with someone you don’t know,” he wisely told her. Best answers? “Of course it fucking is,” when asked if his hair is all his and “It’s a nice knob,” apropos of nothing.

Stars Are Thin?
By PopCultureWhore





















You know it's a slow news week when the tabloids put out the requisite "Are they too thin?" cover. How many times are they going to interview Portia De Rossi about having anorexia? Are they too thin? Of course they are, retards. Is putting them on a magazine cover going to encourage them to eat a burger? Uh no, it's going to fuel cigarette sales and get them into Area ths weekend. Posted by Picasa

Only ONE Guest House?
By PopCultureWhore















Billy Joel has clearly been slumming it in this piece of shit house. Rolling lawns and half a dozen bay windows are SO last season. So clearly he needs to get rid of it and at $37.5 million, it's really a steal. Joel bought the house in 2002 for $22.5 million and married teen bride Katie there in 2004. I think maybe they should move to the desert because there are fewer trees for him to plow his vintage cars into after a night of the drinkie drinkies.

'A' For Effort
By PopCultureWhore

















The Carter family is really pulling out all the stops to promote their upcoming reality series. Nick Carter went on Howard Stern this week and revealed that he lost his virginity to Debra LeFave, the Florida teacher who was arrested for having sex with a 14-year-old male student when she was 23. Carter gave LeFave high marks for her sexual performance, but alas it was not meant to be as she cheated on him 18 months into their relationship with a girl. Carter said he has shied away from discussing the relationship at the suggestion of his publicist, but a trashy reality TV series calls for some trashy anecdotes about your sexual history. Nick also revealed that ex-girlfriend Paris Hilton initially liked playing the domestic goddess, but eventually grew bored of vacuuming his carpets and was back on the club scene. This certainly tops brother Aaron's two-minute engagement to a Playboy playmate.

Desperate and Single?
By PopCultureWhore















Tony Parker has apparently come to his senses. Eva Longoria’s rep admits to People that she and her boyfriend of two years are “going through a very difficult time right now,” which is Hollywood speak for “they split two weeks ago after an alcohol-fueled fight that ended with a car crash and some unfortunate words.” The flack blames the trouble on Tony and Eva’s “extremely demanding careers” but it’s probably related to the fact that he’s 24 and 31-year-old Eva has been talking nonstop about the fact they’re going to get married and have 5,000 babies and be together forever.

Meanwhile, ladies everywhere will be thrilled to hear that Tony Danza is back on the market. The “Who’s the Boss” star is divorcing his wife of 20 years, Tracy.

UPDATE: It's official. Tony and Eva are dunzo!

Pretty Salma, Ugly Betty
By PopCultureWhore






















Salma Hayek goes au natural chic for a “Vogue” photo shoot. Did anyone catch “Ugly Betty,” the new ABC show of which she is an executive producer? Salma made an amusing cameo as a Mexican soap opera star, but I’m not sure how I feel about the show as a whole.

It’s basically a low-rent TV version of “Devil Wears Prada” (with Betty in the Anne Hathaway role) but without Meryl Streep and all the gorgeous clothes. The cast doesn’t really gel and the guy who plays Betty’s boss reminds me too much of the guy who played Peter Blake on “Days of our Lives.” I expected him to shout something about Stefano DiMera at any moment.

Also, at one point, Betty ends up helping her boss come up with a layout pitch for a cosmetics executive who was a Donatella-Lizzie Grubman hybrid. I was confused, though, as to why a magazine editor-in-chief was essentially pitching an ad campaign to a cosmetics CEO. One character randomly mentioned a “supplement” to the magazine, but a) wouldn’t the sales and marketing people handle that and b) wouldn’t the cosmetics company have their own advertising company to handle magazine inserts? Did I miss something?

The producers must also be Ricky Gervais fans. Ashley Jensen, the girl who plays Gervais’ sidekick on “Extras” appears as a co-worker who is sympathetic to Betty’s plight and Lucy Davis, who played the British version of Pam on “The Office” in the UK, also has a small role. As far as comedy goes, however, they might want to stick with Gervais.

The ‘A’ in A-Line is For Alcohol
By PopCultureWhore


















I think we might have answer to why Project Runway’s Laura a) is always knocked up and b) why her children appear to rather ADD. She’s an alcoholic! She gave an interview to Out Zone TV because she’s apparently big in the gay community now and they asked her about her favorite drink while pregnant and while not pregnant. Her answer for both questions: Tanqueray martini, up with olives. “Cause that’s when I really need it!” she says of alcohol during pregnancy. “Usually though, my husband will order it, and I sip from his glass. That’s our way of handling that situation.” Super! She also reveals that she loved Kayne “I just thought, if this child just put one idea in the dress, instead of eight, he would kick all of our asses.”

Meanwhile, click HERE for more scoop on a possible battle between Laura and Jeffrey and how it might affect his standing on the show.
