Today Around the Blogosphere...

Ashlee Simpson Wentz's name was misspelled on the cover of this week's OK! Magazine.

And--according to P6-- someone at the mag will likely be fired as a result. Oops!

Though, in that case, everyone should be fired at Us.

P.S. Just so we're clear--this is how you're supposed to spell--------> Ashley.

Dita Von Teese is topless in the December issue of German Playboy.

And, reportedly, ex-Danity Kane member Aubrey O'Day "spent all day at a Manhattan photo studio doing a spread" for American Playboy.

Rumor has it she posed alongside lion cubs for the pictorial. [TMZ]

Way to prove people wrong, O'Day!

Page Six is reporting that-- much hated blabbermouth-- Ann Coulter was in an accident that resulted in her having to get her jaw wired shut.

Oh the irony. (If it's true anyway).

Feast your eyes on the new Converse All Star Ox Clear, a transparent Lo-top with a white sole and white leather details.

They can be yours for a reasonable £39.99 ($61 USD). Now the question is, do you really want to go there?

Oh, and apparently there's a glow-in-the-dark and hi-top version of these plastic kicks.

Yes the Speidi Marriage is Fake [Ugh to This Posting]

Well lookie here, Pustule Hilton is calling the Speidi marriage BS. (Wait, wasn't P the one who broke this story?!)

He's saying Speidi concocted the plan for publicity and money (in the ballpark of $300-grand).

And he's saying Us was in on it, which I pretty much figured. [See my previous posting Speidi Got (Probably) Fake Married in Mexico]

Still, with all of his sanctimonious spewing and finger-wagging, you should know Pustule Hilton is friends with these two tools [i.e. Speidi]; as evidenced by this staged photo of the three coming out of a church (of all places)--with Bibles in tow.


Also--it bears repeating-- PUSTULE BROKE THE STORY before Us went to press.

In other words, duh!, he was totally in on the action too.

Grossness all around. And to think, Us is one of the more credible tabs.

Bad form!

P.S. Sorry, totally called it. Now excuse me while I solemnly ponder over the depravity of American culture. How did we get here?

Lindsay Lohan is Back on the Bottle

This isn't really news to those who saw what Lindsay Lohan looked like during her now (sorta) infamous interview with Access Hollywood; you know the one where she expressed/incoherently mumbled her excitement for our "first colored president."

But yes, Lohan, 22, is back to her drankin' ways. And the kicker is this documented evidence i.e. grainy, black and white security cam footage from a nightclub where SamRo deejayed recently.

At least she drinks the good stuff.

Update: I guess I should specify that Lohan reportedly pulled a bottle of Grey Goose out from under the counter, combined it with a Red Bull and drank it.


"MAC cosmetics has teamed up with Sanrio Global Consumer Products to create a Hello Kitty Cosmetics Collection," according to WWD.

The line will arrive on M.A.C’s Web site Feb. 10, in North American stores on Feb. 12 and into overseas stores in March.

Do you think you could pull off "Lipstick Queen" Poppy King's new sexy sheer black lipstick and gloss?


Sadly, I cannot. Still dope though.

Instant Update: Oh, apparently the lipstick is sold out.

Rumors have been swirling that Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is retiring (God willing). And it turns out, it's a touchy subject. When NY Mag caught up with the wearer-of-one-hairstyle recently--and pressed her on the subject--it was told: " I'm so sorry, I think that's an extremely rude question. Leave me alone." [The Cut]

So she's telling us there's a chance.

Speidi Got (Probably) Fake Married in Mexico

Wedded piss bliss. Speidi spontaneously eloped in (to?) Mexico last Thursday. And a professional photog just happened to be there.

Visit ONTD for the full spread.

Also, something tells me this shiz isn't even valid. According to About.com "A marriage in Mexico is legal only if it is a civil ceremony performed at a local Civil Register Office (Oficina del Registro Civil). You can have a religious ceremony later." Also "There is a waiting period of two to three days in Mexico. It varies from state to state. Plan extra time for getting the paperwork all arranged."

In her Q & A with Us, Heidi says the wedding idea popped into her head over margaritas. So naturally she asked the locals if there was a chapel around, "and they [the locals] said yes, and it comes with a minister and a photographer. And we, suddenly were like, 'Wow, this feels like it was meant to be.' And the next thing you know, we got our margaritas in to-go glasses." (Yes, reading that made you slightly dumber.)

In other words--unless they waited for a few days, and had a separate civil ceremony--much like Speidi--this wedding is sooo fake!

Expect an oops followup and another cover story because they're douches like that.

And Us has sunk to a new low. To wit--it had to have been in on it because marriage licenses are public record. To wit--this whole thing could have been avoided--and debunked--with preliminary fact checking. To wit--we could have been spared.

Financial Reprieve for Americans who Still Hunger for the Luxury of Dining Out...

video

...and have an unrefined palate.

Menu Suggestion: The Five-Dollar Too Big to Fail Thick and Juicy Steak.

In case you can't watch this at work or something, the Wall Street dramz has trickled all the way down to a Denny's commercial. Specifically, Denny's says it's going to bail you out (because the government won't) with its "$4 Weekday Express Slam" breakfast.

Ha!

Instead of William Sonoma cupcakes, maybe that's one of the things Oprah will be giving away this year.

Oprah's Favorite Things Episode is Going to Suck This Year

Not Happening!

Blame Wall Street. The best (and maybe the only) annual episode of Oprah is going to suck this year because the economy's in the shithole.

That's right, Oprah's "Favorite Things" episode--to air Nov. 26-- is going budget, according to Us. So instead of stuff like the loungy sailor pants, $800 Samsung camcorders and $3,600 HDTV LG refrigerators she "gave away" in 2007, a rep for the talk show host says--via statement-- Oprah'll be giving away items that "cost next to nothing"!

You'll also hear some great ideas to make your holiday party memorable and affordable," reads the statement. "And, Oprah unveils a special gift that won’t cost you a thing! Find out how to have the thriftiest holidays ever."

Ew! I hate it when people try to say "Christmas isn't about (expensive) presents."

Besides, Oprah's "Favorite Things" episode is just an hour's worth of product placement. Sure O probably likes all the things the sponsors ship to her to give away...yeah I'm not really sure where I was going that.

But Oprah should do her part to help the economy rather than try to help people cope i.e. she should endorse her sponsors' products (now more than ever) to give them a much needed sales boost.

I swear this makes sense (after all, we know what O's endorsements do for the book industry). It might even prevent some people from losing their jobs and becoming homeless.

While we're on the subject, why not wrangle up a bunch of poor people to be in the audience and give them a bunch of crazy cool stuff?!

Alright fine, real talk. I just want to see lots of women cry tears of joy as they scream/hyperventilate while jumping up and down.

Like this...



It starts 30 seconds into the clip and goes on for a looong time.

And you know Oprah's favorite things don't "cost next to nothing." So she's keeping with the real theme this year: LIES!

Update:
As I feared this episode sucked (the part I saw anyway). Oprah spent half the time talking about heartfelt notes and ugly, inexpensive ways to dress up a shoebox. Then she helped one of her chefs cook a turkey. Apparently the secret is frequent basting.

Damn you greedy autocrats. Damn you.

News Around the Blogosphere...


Ashley and Pete Wentz had a baby boy on Thursday night, according to People.

Bronx Mowgli (Jungle Book?) Wentz weighed in at a healthy 7 lbs., 11 oz (unlike most celeb newborns).[People]

Also, it's probably safe to assume the two will be pimpin' him out to one of the mags (most likely OK! or People). So stay tuned...

The first Sanrio Luxe store opened in NYC mid-September.

Emphasis on the Luxe, because instead of cheap plastic wallets, stickers and cell phone charms, the store "devotes significant space to $200+ clothing, jewelry, shoes and collaboration items which were formerly Japan exclusives (like the Hello Kitty x Porter collab)." [Racked]

Diamond (?) Encrusted Hello Kitty Pez Dispensers

For more pics of the merchandise visit Jezebel.
For more details visit Racked.

P.S. A few years ago I peeped a Kimora Lee Simmons for Hello Kitty charm bracelet at Neiman Marcus; and it retailed for a whopping $900! At that price, my mom's eyes practically bugged out of her head, so needless to say, I didn't get it.

P.P.S. This diamond Kimora Lee Simmons for Hello Kitty necklace is going for a crazy $4,500 at Sanrio.com.


Karolina Kurkova Has a Nonie


Speaking of models (kinda), apparently Karolina Kurkova has a nonie (pronounced nunnie).

Splash News reports: "A new discovery has surfaced regarding one of the Victoria's Secret Supermodels - that she has no belly button! VS reps have confirmed that Karolina Kurkova indeed has no belly button, and that one is installed using photo editing whenever her odd mid-section is photographed."

Gwyneth Paltrow Says She Regrets Wearing Fur in Tod's Ad, No Mention of Python Handbag or Suede Pants


After upsetting PETA and supposedly Stella McCartney, Gwyneth Paltrow says she regrets wearing fur in this Tod's ad.

PETA senior vice president, Dan Mathews, accosted chatted with the actress at the Fontainebleau Hotel opening in Miami over the weekend; and according Mathews this is what Paltrow, 36, had to say about the, um, incident(?).
"That was awkward, and I'm glad you asked, because I do not wear fur at all. It was a daylong photo shoot on a boat near Capri, and there were all sorts of poses with all kinds of clothes - none with fur," she added. "During one set-up, a stylist came up from behind and draped a stole around my shoulder. I didn't pay much attention to it, and when I noticed it was fur, I assumed it was fake fur, but did not ask, so it's my fault. I was very surprised when they ended up using that one shot out of hundreds for the centerpiece of the Tod's ads.I know it's not a great excuse, but I hope you and your members understand." [Via Us]
Which is all fantastic (and kinda unbelievable)...or something. But what about that $4,000 fringe python handbag next to her; or the suede pants and python booties?

Not that I have a huge problem with it, just why all the hoopla about only the fur?

Harry Henderson Causes Gayelle Fight


So apparently HoHan and SamRo got in a fight because of this guy [Calum Best]. Yeah, whatever, who cares? More important, I think the lining of Best's jacket was made from his chest hair.

Ashley Dupré: "It Wasn't Any Different Than Going on a Date With Someone You Barely Knew and Hooking Up With Them"


Aside from a brief telephone conversation with a NYT reporter, Ashley Alexandra Dupré--the former prosti-hooker from the Eliot Spitzer scandal--has remained tight-lipped about the ordeal. But now (when no one really cares about it anymore) she's finally talking.

Her first interview is in the latest issue of People--which hits newsstands on Friday. And judging from the portion that's currently available online, it's as passé as you might expect.

To wit--Dupré says some prosti patrons like to talk, so they can get to know each other, but with Spitzer, 49, it was "strictly business...more like a transaction." Also, Dupré, 23, says she thinks Spitzer has "been punished enough" and she's sorry for his wife Silda's pain.

The highlight, however, is Dupré's rationale for hooking.

"This wasn't any different than going on a date with someone you barely knew and hooking up with them," she says. "The only difference is I can pay my rent."

Which is all well and pretty skanky and everything, but tell me fellow 20-somethings, would you go out with this guy in the first place?

And that's undoubtedly not the worst of it.

For the full sneak peek visit People.

Additional Note: Diane Sawyer also scored an interview with Dupré, which is expected to take up two parts of 20/20, airing Friday. [NY Daily News]

Wow! I Was Gone for a Week, Missed Nothing

After spending almost a week in the company of neon fanny packs, crying children and overweight people on motor scooters (i.e. I went to Disney World)--leaving me with no time to blog--I was fully prepared to have to do some major catching up.

But actually, it turns out, nothing really happened (in my realm of the blogosphere, anyway).

Yeah the Dow was on its own roller coaster of sorts (although is that really news anymore?) and that whole Sarah Palin didn't know Africa was a continent rumor may have actually been a hoax (gasp!).

That's kinda it though.

Unless you care that...

Daily 10 co-host Debbie Matenopoulos's music exec husband filed for divorce online and neglected to tell her about it. Apparently Matenopoulos, 33, received the news via 'Internet posts.' "I was informed of my husband's divorce proceedings, much like you were," she said, "by reading them online." Eesh.[People]

A PETA member thought Lindsay Lohan was wearing fur to an event in Paris on Friday, so she did the right thing and pelted the lately lesbian with a flour bomb.

[Via ET. Click to see video.]

Of course SamRo came to LoHo's defense--on her MySpace blog--and got all deep, writing "The girl who threw [the flour bomb] acted like an animal herself."

Also--in a separate interview with Access Hollywood--LoHo, 22, shared her excitement about Barack Obama, 47,winning the presidential election, saying "It's an amazing feeling. It's our first colored president."



Uhhh.....

In an episode to air on Thursday, Jennifer Aniston sorta kinda opened up to Oprah about saying Angelina Jolie's past behavior was "really uncool" and says Brad Pitt's "done some amazing things in the last couple of years. So I just think he's doing great."

Not to be out-blabbed, Aniston's publicity whore of a boyfriend, John Mayer, revealed a scintillating detail about their relationship, telling People "That girl [aka Jen] knows me ... so whether I go to bed alone or not, to have somebody who knows you in this world, that's a really nice thing."


Seriously, that's People's most read story this week.

Go figure, since the mag is also reporting that Solange Knowles is addicted to...wait for it...NAIL ART. [People]

Be Back Saturday

Hi guys, I'm in Flor-e-duh this week. I'll be back to blogging on Saturday.

Monday, November 10, 2008

Today the fed announced plans to pump an additional $40 billion into the black hole that is American International Group [A.I.G], bringing the ailing insurance corporation's total government aid up to $150 billion.

Meanwhile, A.I.G's recently retired executive vice president Robert M. Sandler is enjoying his new $3.45 million Manhattan apartment. In case you're wondering, Sandler and his wife, Annette, purchased the pad in mid-September. And of course, they paid in cash.

Barney the White House Dog Bites Reporter

Today started out ordinarily enough for George W's Scottish Terrier Barney. He awakened from a peaceful slumber, sleepily stretched in his warm shearling-lined bed, panted a little and went out for his morning walk/crap.

Alas, Barney didn't even have time to sink his paws into the sprawling manicured lawn (let alone pee) before he was hounded by a group of overly-friendly reporters. Still, kinda the norm, so Barney would have been cool (irritated, but cool) if they'd limited it to the filming, picture-taking, and repeated 'Hi Barney's. But then, then, an annoying Reuters White House correspondent--who always hangs around Barney's pad--tried to touch him.

And that's where Barney drew the line.


[Via Daily Intel]

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this probably has something to do with Barney's temperament.If you'll recall, his dad literally dropped him on his head (though not as a baby).
