And, um, cool cake?

She's also sexy as hell.
You're rockin' the one shoe, while picking at your foot in a shopping cart, look, girl! Don't let anyone tell you that's weird or gross. Cause, frankly, it is. But hey, you're Courtney Love. And that's the kind of shit we all expect from you. Besides, you're only 43, practically a kid. You can still get away with it.
Additional Note: Earlier this month, Love claimed Cobain's ashes were stolen. The remains were said to be stored in pink bear-shaped bag in a closet at her Hollywood home.
Now how stupid is she going to feel when she remembers she moved the ashes to the troll-shaped purse, hidden in her sock drawer? Just sayin'.

That's when Pratt reportedly banked 50k for selling a picture of MK drunk at a party.
I guess Olsen's still holding a grudge because she called out Pratt, and his bad temper, during her Letterman appearance on Thursday. She said he threw temper tantrums when he played for their high school soccer team.
"He would walk off the field," she said (while looking kind of high). "He was like 'me or the coach.'"

Update: The feud continues. Us is reporting Pratt is flattered that MK was talking about him. But (surprise!) he's confused.
"I don't really get why she'd use my name to get press for her little indie film [The Wackness] that no one's going to see," he told Usmagazine.com on Friday. "She should probably focus more on not getting dressed in the dark than on me."
Adding to his confusion, Pratt said that Olsen went to Campbell Hall in North Hollywood while he attended Crossroads School in Santa Monica.
"I know I've made it in Hollywood when a famous troll is talking about me on Letterman," He said."I forgive her, though. She's had to go through life as the less cute twin, which must be tough."

News of the World is calling Sienna Miller a big ol' homewrecker. It alleges: "The rampant movie beauty has been enjoying ROMANTIC NIGHTS with actor and dad-of-four Balthazar Getty (MARRIED, multi-millionaire oil heir). [News of the World]
"The besotted pair have been holed up together day and night in Hollywood after his heartbroken wife fled the country with their kids.
"Despite playing a cat and mouse game to stay out of the headlines they have been spotted secretly meeting at restaurants near their hillside hideaway.
"Now Getty's clothes designer wife Rosetta has run away to Italy with their four children —the youngest born only eight months ago—after rumbling her wandering husband."
A source says: "Even though Balthazar loves his wife and children he cannot stay away from her. But Rosetta found out about them and has now fled to Italy.
"She can't believe her husband could do this to her. The whole family now know and everybody is devastated."
Very shortly after that interview Miller kicked Ifans's ass to the curb because she caught him going through her text messages or something stupid.
All of them: HO BAGS!!!

In the midst of performing an hour-long set, Amy Winehouse allegedly punched a concert-goer at the Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, England on Saturday.
Witnesses say that a fan tried to grab the singer, though it is unclear what provoked the altercation.
Despite the scuffle, Winehouse was reportedly in fine voice. She was even coherent enough to give her jail-bird husband--Blake Fielder-Civil-- a shout out.
"I wrote this one for Blake," she told the crowd before singing "Wake Up Alone." I thought I'd never see him again."
"I've only got two weeks left of this predicament, so this one's for you, Blake," she mumbled.
"I looooove youuuuu Blaaaaaake," she probably also cooed.
To all of which I say, "what's the big deal?" You take a wild animal out of her natural habitat, and expect her to act normal?!?!
Now who's the crazy crackhead?
Just be glad Winehouse made it through her two-song performance for the Nelson Mandela 90th birthday tribute concert in Hyde Park on Friday. Hey, I was nervous. It was touch and go during the days leading up to the event. Supermodel Naomi Campbell was removed from the list of celebrity presenters. And Winehouse missed a photo shoot. It could have been ugly.

She's TALENTED, driven and, not to mention, a super nice girl. She's unlike so many of the bitchy, back-stabbing, peeps I met in J-school; i.e. she's banking on her actual talent. There's another reason to check her out!
P.S. She'll also have three (yet-to-be-determined :) pieces included in the The Space Gallery (1141 Polk St. in San Francisco) showing this Saturday. Unfortunately I'll be out of town. But if you're in the area you should go!
Anyway, they should have at least made her wear a pair of ass-less, denim, chaps to make it remotely believable.
Also, I guess Hulk Hogan, her dad, got all protective during the photo shoot; and wanted to make sure she didn't show too much skin (uh) or something. Whatevs. I get it. They're close. He likes to rub suntan lotion on her ass. Over it.
Besides, if anything, he should have bitched about her boob job.

Wow! Matt Damon, 37, had to become a real fat ass for his new movie--The Informant-- which he is currently filming in Hawaii.
That's just cruel BTW. He had to gain a bunch of weight, slip into a pair of swim trucks and shoot in a tropical location.
In November, People deemed Damon "The Sexiest Man Alive"... for albino-loving chubby chasers.

Anyway, I only have a vague idea where this photo-op occured (I think it was in North Carolina). I'm pretty sure the tallest guy in the back is 9th Wonder, 33. And I read that someone thinks the rest of the people in picture are Rapper Big Pooh, Phonte, Joe Scudda and Khrysis. But I don't know if that's accurate, as I am uncool; and don't know who(m?) most of these people are. No offense.

"I have OCD mixed with ADD," he says. "You try living with that. It's complicated."[ContactMusic.com]
So accusatory. Way to not make me feel bad for you.
That's not to say that I believe his gripe is founded in the first place. He makes the disorders sound like a cocktail.
Anyway, I've also read that Timberlake is blaming the script for his latest flopped film--The Love Guru-- which came in fourth at the box office in its opening weekend.

First up was Wipeout, a show where each week 24 contestants compete in various hazardous obstacle courses. Tons of mud and giant, red rubber balls are involved. And the original 24 are whittled down to one along the way. The winner takes home 50 grand (before taxes).
As I've mentioned, I was excited for Wipeout. And while it was entertaining (replete with snarky commentary and cringe-worthy, yet laughable, instant replays), I figure, without any character development, it's bound to get old fast. I hope I'm wrong.
Highlights From the Debut Episode:
1. Obviously, the embarrassing-ass spills.
2. The Police Academy grad who let his friends dress him for the show.
3. And the go-go dancer chick who broke a nail while kicking some obstacle course ass.
I was rooting for her after that. Too bad she didn't win. Some dude named "Jazz Hands" did. (Sigh)
Moving on. I Survived a Japanese Game Show (9 p.m.) was surprisingly enjoyable. (I'm not sure why I doubted it. After all, who doesn't like a good Japanese game show? Human Tetris anyone?) Basically ISAJGS involves 10 unsuspecting Americans, who were (supposedly) told they were going to participate in a "traditional reality show" (whatever that means). Instead, they were put on a plane to Japan; and later taken to a dark, seemingly vacant, film studio.
Then this happened.
Followed by this.
Alas, someone's gotta go home every week. This time it was Darcy.
There you have it. ABC's Tuesday night of humiliation, where reality show contestants embarrass themselves for your enjoyment.
P.S. Random clip. Just cause it's funny.

Larry King's wife Shawn Southwick King, 48, has entered rehab for an addiction to painkillers.

"Heather has been dealing with anxiety and depression. She requested an in-depth evaluation of her medication and entered into a medical facility for proper diagnosis and treatment," says Locklear's rep, Cece Yorke. "This is a confidential medical matter and no further statement will be released."
People intends to delineate Locklear's history with depression, and the emotional support her boyfriend (Melrose Place co-star) Jack Wagner, 48, is providing in its new issue, which hits newsstands on Friday. Although, I gather Wagner ain't making her that happy.
That said, I blame this picture......and Denise Richards, 37.
But just when I was about to roll my eyes and curse the heavens, lo, a light at the end of the tunnel. Banks, 34, done went and unintentionally thanked her mother's sweat during her acceptance speech.
"I want to thank Oprah Winfrey for the inspiration. She is the queen," she said. "I want to thank my mama for her perspiration."
"Yes Mom, your sweaty ass has always been there for me," she meant to add.
I don't know Dawkins, I think there might be a God.
Peep the clip.
And if you think you can handle it, here's Banks babbling backstage after she won.
Let me count the ways she is going to find a reason to talk about her Emmy on her terrible talk show.

All things considered, you'd think Imus would pussyfoot and choose his words more carefully. But once again, he finds himself in the hot seat over dubious comments he made--during his WABC radio show on Monday--about another African-American athlete.
"During his program, conversation turned to a story about how suspended Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones, 24, now wants to drop his well-known nickname. In the course of the segment, Imus is told that Jones has 'been arrested six times since being drafted by Tennessee in 2005.'”
Imus asks: “What color is he?”
“He’s African-American,” the host is informed by one of his on-air sidekicks.
“Well, there you go,” Imus says. “Now we know.”[Politico]
Is this gaffe number two for Imus? You be the judge. Here's the audio.
In a statement provided to The New York Times, Imus says, ''I meant that he was being picked on because he's black.''
Imus is expected to comment further during his show on Tuesday.

In case you were living under a rock during gaffe number one...
Update: June 24- As expected, Imus addressed the issue on his radio show this morning.
Excerpt taken from Newsday:
On this morning's "Imus in the Morning" edition, Imus again insisted that his comment had been misconstrued: "Obviously I thought they [the police] were picking on him, so I asked what color he was. Obviously I knew what color he was in order to make a sarcastic point. 'There you go. That's the point.' What people should be outraged about is that they arrest blacks for no reason." He mentioned that he was surrounded by black producers and contributors to the show: "How insane [and] what would I be thinking? Why would I sit here and say, 'Well, there you go.' How do you make that connection?
"My point was, there was no reason to arrest him six times...If he gets arrested six times we know why he gets arrested six times. That's my point."
"After last year," he added, referring to the comment that got him fired from WFAN, "No white man has had more discussion about race relations ... than I have."
Then, after citing a number of black leaders who had been on the show, he told his on-air colleagues, Charles McCord and Warner Wolf, "I know there are some people who want to get me, but this is ridiculous."
I guess I'm not the only one entranced by Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)/cage fighter, Kevin" Kimbo Slice" Ferguson, 34. Of late, he has made the cover of ESPN The Magazine, and NY Mag's Approval Matrix. Dude's BADASS.
Why? He personifies brute force by kicking ass and taking names. For Chrissake, his last name is Slice. He was paid $175,000 for knocking out, Ultimate Fighting Championship brawler, Tank Abbott...in 43 seconds. He rose to fame by partaking in brutal fights, posted on YouTube. And according to ESPN, Slice admits to being a "just a little" evil, and "dreams of tearing off a man's arm and beating him with it." After all, he has the keen ability to see "souls tremble."
I intend to stay on his good side (thank you very much).
Check out his famous--EliteXC Certified-- fight with Tank Abbott.
Caveat: If you don't like flying fists, this clip's not for you.
The night's reveries included: Puffing cigarettes.
Beating on a piñata crafted by crack heads.
Posing with a fellow fugly duckling.
Pretend imminent cupcake eating.
Staring at a puddle of, what looks like, barf or bile.
Also, Richie wanted you to know, instead of booze, she opted to drink water. Smart Water.
For more pictures visit ONTD.
Update: Ok so these pictures may have been taken a while ago. That "Fugly Duckling" in the picture with MK is reportedly her EX-Boyfriend Max Snow (i.e. some dude related to Uma Thurman). Apparently the two broke up in November 2007. So, that's probably the time frame we're looking at for these photos.

On the surface it appeared to be a shameless ploy for attention. But, it could have also been a delayed reaction to her freedom from"The Donald."
The two divorced in 1999.
Since then, Maples has (astoundingly) managed to downgrade, in terms of sleaze. She did a two-year stint with fashion designer/(alleged) serial rapist, Anand Jon; and was most recently linked to Andy Baldwin (The Bachelor season 10). The latter relationship is said to have been a publicity stunt.
For kicks, check out this vintage--1991--clip of Maples serving -- along with Regis Philbin, 76, and Alex Trebek, 67-- as a celebrity co-host on WWF WrestleMania VII.
I'm so glad this shit was before my time. And that's not how I like to see my Trebek.
