Today Around the Blogosphere...

Project Runway models have very little interaction with the designers; and, reportedly, work 10-hour days without pay. Yes it's shitty, but not particularly shocking. We all know Runway is sheisty. (Heck, not even Tim Gunn () got paid for season one.)

Anyway, visit The Cut to see what, recently aufed model, Elena Abete (pictured left) had to say about her unpleasant experience with the show.

" I Kissed a Girl" singer Katy Perry gets her boobs plastered for a breast cancer charity. In case you're wondering, and I know you are, Perry, 23, wears a 32D. [Egotastic!]

Not to knock a good cause or anything, but the clip is pretty boring.


David Duchovny is a Sex Addict, Goes to Rehab

Whoa! David Duchovny has entered a rehabilitation center for sex addiction, his lawyer, Stanton "Larry" Stein, told People.

"I have voluntarily entered a facility for the treatment of sex addiction," the actor says in an exclusive statement. "I ask for respect and privacy for my wife and children as we deal with this situation as a family.

Duchovny, 48, has been married to actress Téa Leoni since 1997.

Wait, so does this mean he wasn't just acting in Showtime's soft core series--Red Show Diaries?

Today Around the Blogosphere (Updated)...

Not only does Jessica Simpson love, boyfriend, Tony Romo, 28, she apparently really loves talking about him too.

"I just told him today, 'You're the love of my life,' " she confesses in the latest issue of People. "I don't really ever say that to anybody."

That's why she had to check Romo's call log to make sure he wasn't still contacting, ex-girlfriend, Carrie Underwood.

As far as Simpson's exes go, however, she says: "I don't want anybody that's been in my life [before] in my life anymore. I don't even want them to have any way of contacting me."

So as a "sign of devotion", she even "changed her cell phone number and e-mail address!"

Simpson sure sounds nice and stable, not to mention, mature. And Romo should sort of be afraid; because in addition to having a crazy-sounding girlfriend, after a cover story like this, they're obligated to, publicly, remain a couple for at least two more months.



A cop in Denver hit a peace protester with his baton, sending her falling to the ground on Tuesday. Reportedly, the protester (Alicia Forrest) didn't provoke the assault; she was apparently trying to take a picture of another protester being arrested, which, I should add, is completely legal. Also, Forrest was then arrested too. For the rest of this fucked up, yet ironic, tale head this way-----> [Daily Intel]

Samantha Ronson is Maybe Going to Write a Book

Okay so I guess Lindsay Lohan's, DJ, girlfriend (platonic?) Samantha Ronson, 31, is maybe, possibly going to become an "author."

"Well, she's certainly telling friends she's planning to write a book," a source, supposedly, close to Ronson and Lohan, told E!. "It's supposed to be about her, allegedly. But come on, you know Lindsay will be all over that book. She's the only one people want to read about."

I don't know, somehow I doubt Ronson would write a book with Lindsay "all over" it. She's not a total moron, right? And, Lohan or no, she's not exactly boring either. To wit--Ronson gets paid to travel the world and play music for the (really) rich and famous. Sure she may have initially gotten gigs because of her family connections (totally unfair!), but isn't that also sort of interesting? I mean her mom was married to Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones ; Ronson's, three-time Grammy-winning, brother produced Amy Winehouses's Back to Black; and one time, when she was growing up, Al Pacino stopped by for Christmas brunch. (Also, I have a soft spot for anyone who's ever sued Perez Hilton.) Ronson's not really hurting for material.

Apparently, though, Michael Lohan, 48, (Lindsay's dad) didn't get the memo. Plus, for whatever reason, he wants publicity; so he's fuming about a possible Ronson book.

He rants:
"I've shut up about this long enough. She's [Ronson] using my daughter. People never even knew who Samantha Ronson was until she met Lindsay. She was just some L.A. DJ. And now she's writing a book? I am at wit's end with this stuff. This is not in Lindsay's best interest. Let's just say I hope Lindsay starts opening her eyes and realizes who the people using her are."

And didn't ML "absolutely promise" his daughter he would not mention her "name in the press, at all, ever again?!"

In any event, Lindsay, 21, is not happy about his comments.

“He’s out of control,” she told Access Hollywood from the set of Ugly Betty, where she’s filming several guest appearances for the ABC show’s third season. “I want him to stop hurting and talking to the media about the people I love.”

And even SamRo has taken to her MySpace blog, where among other things she wrote, "i feel no need to publicly defend my role in lindsay's life- i'm just sorry that she likes me more than him."

Hard Candy is Downsizing Line

Beauty company Hard Candy is downsizing its line (as my heart breaks).

According to Fashionista: The brand "will slim down by next season, selling only its gift sets and liquidating everything else, including the iconic pastel polishes that made the brand famous."

At 13, you guys have no idea how excited I got about those cheap-o, rubber jewel-toned rings that come/came :( with HC's nail polish. No exaggeration, I had every color. (Obviously other tweens weren't as easily swindled.)

Anyway, there's a glittery lining: Hard Candy has slashed prices by 75 percent, so pretty much everything on its Website is $6 & under.

Kelly Osbourne May Have Been in a Fight...

... or taken a cricket ball to the face. Then again, she might have fallen down a flight of stairs in an OxyContin induced stupor; or suffered a sleepwalking mishap. She could have even pulled a Charlie Rose, choosing bodily harm instead of injuring her precious MacBook Air (assuming Osbourne has one). We may never know, cause she not telling us WTF? happened.

One thing's for sure though, Osbourne, 23, has herself one heck of a shiner. Here she is outside of her London home on Tuesday (today).


And what's up with the gauze? Hairline hair transplants?

Update: Mystery solved unfortunately. Osbourne, reportedly, "reached to get a glass from a cupboard in her kitchen and the whole piece of furniture fell off the wall on top of her, cutting her temple and hitting her in the left eye." [Mail Online]

Dr. Dre's Son Found Dead

In sad news, Dr. Dre's 20-year-old son Andre Young Jr., was found dead at his home in Woodland Hills, Calif. on Saturday. According to People, Young's mother told police that she attempted to rouse her son at 10:24 a.m., and when she couldn't, she called paramedics, who pronounced him dead at the scene.

Young "had been out with friends" the previous night and returned home around 5:30 a.m., according to L.A. County Coroner's assistant chief Ed Winter. An autopsy was performed on Monday, but the cause of death isn't likely to be determined for eight weeks while toxicology tests are done.

"Dr. Dre is mourning the loss of his son," his rep Lori Earl said in a statement. "Please respect his family's grief and privacy at this time."

Countess LuAnn de Lesseps Got Too Grabby at a Wedding

Countess LuAnn de Lesseps may have taken a few too many trips to the open bar at the Southampton wedding of BlueStar Jets owner Todd Rome and his bride, Vanessa Brahms, on Thursday.

According to Page Six, while there, The Real Housewives of NYC cast member was trying to make out with married men...and women.

Making matters worse, in addition to trying to get her make out on, Countess LuAnn was also, allegedly, grabbing married mens' crotches.

Consequently, her husband Alexandre Count de Lessups seemed so overwhelmed, a spy said, he "tried to make her leave and was seen throwing her to the ground in the parking lot." (I'd say her drunkness probably fell.) Another source said "A pregnant wife caught [Countess Lu] in the act, stormed off and walked home in disgust."

LuAnn also supposedly took to the stage, "commandeered the mic" from the band, sang two songs and "knocked over the drum set while smiling at the [200] horrified guests."

And the problem is what exactly?

Shawn Johnson Stops by "Letterman"

Olympic, gold medal-winning, gymnast Shawn Johnson, 16, stopped by the Letterman show, before heading home to Des Moines, Iowa on Monday. In addition to winning the gold for her balance beam routine, Shawn won three silver medals--floor exercise, all-around individual and team competitions.

Fun Fact: Shawn is only 4 feet 9 inches tall.


P.S. Solange, 22, was there too, performing her latest single--"Sandcastle Disco."

Let's hope Grimace wasn't harmed in the making of that vesty thing.

Kanye West's New Music Video: "Good Morning"

Okay, so the only reason I'm posting Kanye West's new music video--"Good Morning-- (other than the fact that I kinda like the song) is because it was animated by acclaimed Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, and is therefore dope. (Sorta kidding.)

FYI: Murakami sculpted, the obviously controversial, "My Lonesome Cowboy," (seen below) which fetched $15.1 million(!) at auction in May.
He's also the man behind Louis Vuitton's Monogram Multicolore, and other canvases.

You can peep more of his work here, although the Web site is pretty crappy.

Oh yeah, Murakami, 45, also designed the cover of West's album Graduation.

P.S. I guess the "Good Morning" video was leaked online about a year ago, but this is the official HD version.
P.S.S Yeah the more I hear the song, the less I like it.

Panettiere Blames the Po Po for Dad's DV Arrest

Remember when Hayden Panettiere's parents got all drunk and her dad was arrested for, allegedly, punching her mom in the face a couple times?

Well Panettiere, 19, is laying the blame on the Po Po, saying everything was a big misunderstanding, her dad is really sorry and he promises never to do it again. Okay so she only said it was a big misunderstanding.

Panettiere told Extra:
"It [the incident] was blown waaaay out of proportion by a sheriff who wanted his fifteen minutes of fame. My family is wonderful -- so very happy. We're all great."

P.S. Shortly after he was released on bail, Panettiere's dad Alan also said his arrest was a misunderstanding.

Victoria's Secret supermodel Alessandra Ambrósio had a baby girl in Brazil on Sunday. Her name is Anja Louise Ambrósio.

"American Idol" Gets a Fourth Judge

A new, fourth, judge will be in the mix for American Idol's upcoming eighth season. And no, Paula Abdul's prescription drugs aren't finally going to get billing.

Some Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer named Kara DioGuardi is joining the cast. DiGuardi, 37, who has apparently penned songs for Celine Dion, Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera, etc., was, reportedly brought aboard because producers "wanted to try a change" and make the show's format more along the lines of the original Pop Idol, which had four judges.

Abdul went on Phoenix's KISS-FM on Monday and said, while excited for newcomer DioGuardi, "I am concerned about the audience and acceptance. Time will tell. We'll see."

She also mentioned that the presence of a fourth judge complicates the judging process.

"That's gonna be weird if it's a split decision," she said. "I'm sure Simon will get to make the final [call]. It takes the fun out of all the hard work I do to push those kids through."

Me thinks Abdul might be a little bitter. And I'm not really sure what she meant when she complained about all of the "hard work" she does "to push those kids through." You know she just reads what's on the flashcards (not always successfully) and seconds whomever Randy Jackson chooses. (her)

The New York Auditions begin filming on Tuesday (tomorrow) and will air on FOX in January 2009.

FYI: Tomorrow will be the first time all four of the judges sit down together. I think there's a good chance DioGuardi will be the next Dunkleman. Drama is a brewing.

Although, who knows, maybe they'll just all get along. ;)

Kim Kardashian Rushed to Emergency Room

Kim Kardashian, 27, reportedly, rushed to New York Presbyterian Hospital after slicing her foot on a glass coffee table in her hotel room, late Sunday night. No word on how many stitches she needed, but a source told TMZ there was "so much blood, it looked like a murder scene."

Update: Kardashian is fine. And her injury will not prevent her from competing on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars.

“I am OK, yeah. It was a little scary,” she said while on Ryan Seacrest's KISS-FM radio show on Monday morning. “We were in the hotel, and I cut my foot on a glass mirrored table that was broken and jagged, and I didn’t see the edge. And it was like blood everywhere. We went to the hospital, and I’m OK.”

She added: “I had to call my partner, Mark [Ballas]. I feel so bad, I had to wake him up. I said, ‘You’re going to wake up and hear all these things. We’re going to get through this. It’s going to be OK.’ ”
