    Welcome back to Midweek Madness! Every Wednesday, we snack on gossip sandwiches served by In Touch, Us, Ok!, Life & Style, and Star. This week, Tanisha Love Ramirez assists as we the mags report: Kris Jenner is a straight up pimp; other swimsuit models loathe Kate Upton; and Britney Spears is being wooed by a execs at a major hotel on the Las Vegas strip — although they'd better be cool with lip-synching.


    Ok!
    "We're Having Babies!"
    Fun fact: If you pee on this week's issue, it'll tell you if you're pregnant! This week we learn that Khloe Kardashian Odom, Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett and Giuliana Rancic are all having babies — someday. Just not now. Damn false positive headline. Not-pregnant-Kendra plans on having another baby because her son Hank IV wants a sibling; not-pregnant-Khloe is still trying to fill her womb with the next Kardashian heir; and not-pregnant-Giuliana bought some pink items from a children's store. Also, apparently Rihanna wants to go from "musical queen to baby mama," and is trying to get pregnant with Chris Brown's spawn because she thinks "that's the best way to get Chris to put a ring on her finger," shares a helpful insider. In real celebrity pregnancy news: Kimye found out that they're having a baby boy, which they're totes happy about because according to a friend, "Kim adores Mason, so she's excited to have a little boy like him." Somewhere else in Hollywood, John Mayer went down on one knee and popped something — maybe it was THE QUESTION, maybe it was his ACL, we don't know because the couple hasn't confirmed an engagement. And finally, Mila Kunis proves that she is simply out of fucks to give when it comes to your interest in her love life, answering Ok!'s interview question, "can we ask about love in general?" with a terse, "You can. Will I answer? No." Love!

    Life & Style
    "Secrets of the Proposal"
    Some guy named Sean Lowe proposed to some woman who collected the most roses from him, and they are all set to live happily scripted after. We don't know who she is but the "magical" made-for-TV proposal won't air until March 11th, but insiders (read: publicists) reveal that Sean proposed to his co-star — sorry, TRUE LOVE — with a 4.3 carat Neil Lane engagement ring in Rai, Thailand, in front a perfect backdrop of scattered flower petals, tiki torches and a television crew. Stay tuned for the big finale. Or don't. We don't care. Next! Brandi Glanville is fearful that LeAnn Rimes is too unstable to be around her children, and is insisting that the woman who she once referred to as a "washed-up country star" get some help. Kim Kardashian is in "denial about being pregnant" and refuses to stop wearing sky-high heels and body-hugging Spanx as her body insists on growing another human being inside of it. In Kourtney Kardashian news: Kourt scowled, Scott partied, babies ate, lather, rinse, repeat. Meanwhile, Bradley Cooper is "on the hunt for lovely ladies to add to his travel itinerary" while visiting London, so practice your mating call and get cooped up. Lastly, in "A-Listers Get Oscar-Ready" we learn that lady A-Listers are all about sculpting, smoothing and detoxing their bodies in an effort to be "Oscar-Ready" enough to receive accolades for their professional accomplishments. Male A-Listers, however, are probably just playing X-Box and rubbing leftover taco grease onto their faces to achieve that "Oscar-ready" glow.

    In Touch
    "Make Me More Money!"
    It's hard out there for a pimp, and Kris Jenner would know. Now that her "older" girls are out making babies, not money, she's turning to her younger daughters and forcing them to go out there and make her some damn moolah. (Sigh!) According to an insider, "She is going to work them for every penny," and has pulled the girls out of school in favor of having them working more. Friends of the family are worried that Kris is trying to shove both Kendall and Kylie into the big-ass fame-making machine from which Kim Kardashian was born, going so far as to allow them to dress, work and behave like their older sister (Fig 1). That shit kray. RHOA's Phaedra Parks is mad as hell that castmate Kenya Moore backed her ass out of a joint workout video called Donkey Booty and has gone behind her back to produce her own, solo workout video called Stallion Booty, launching an all-out "battle of the booties" between the two former bosom buddies. Also, the mag needs your help figuring out: "Are These Big Butts Real?" (Fig. 2). Let's see, what else? Britney Spears may be headed to Sin City, but she will have a curfew, a spending limit and won't be allowed to bring boys into her room at night, Ke$ha smells like a hobo-meets-"a shrimp on a diaper", and Katy Perry wore a heart-shaped ring that boyfriend John Mayer bought her, what does it mean?

    "My Mistakes As A Mom"
    For real? This lady has something new to say? Oh, not really? Quelle surprise. "I feel guilty all the time because I can't be everywhere at once," Kris Jenner tells the mag. But interms of "mistakes," she doesn't admit to many. She's glad her kids do TV: "They are getting the best business education I could ever hope for." When asked why she pushes her children, she says: "I think you're happier that way." Kris denies that she and Bruce are on the rocks, saying according to the tabloids "I've been divorced 17 times" and as for claims young Kylie and Kendall are being sexualized? "Ridiculous." Basically, the coverline is misleading and KJ has zero regrets. Her interview is followed by a two-page ad posing as editorial; "We Love Our Curves" is about Kardashian Kurves, the new plus-size clothing line Kim, Kourt and Khloe are debuting. Also inside: All of the other Sports Illustrated swimsuit models hate Kate Upton, who won't sit with them at parties and "has been a bitch" to them. Finally, in Bachelor news, Tierra is engaged… To her ex-boyfriend. They should get married later this year.

    "Kim Got Pregnant For $22 Million!"
    "Kim's Web of Lies" rehashes some old crap about why KK wants a divorce instead of an annulment: If she gets the marriage annulled, she's admitting there was fraud, and brands who donated to make the wedding happen could sue her. Meanwhile, a source says Kim "totally used Kanye for his sperm" and after she didn't get pregnant from banging him noon and night, "sweet-talked him into doing in vitro." They visited Beverly Hills fertility specialist Dr. Mark Surrey and the conception was arranged. Plus, Kim had sex with Kanye while she and Kris were still together, claims a source, and she cheated on Kris with some millionaire businessman. Blah blah blah moving on. LeAnn Rimes is pregnant, and the proof is that she has dark hair now and didn't drink a single margarita while in Cabo over Christmas. Britney Spears has been trying to land a residency in Vegas, but the problem is, she doesn't sing live during her concerts "and has no plans to start now." As RuPaul would say: The time has come for you to lipsync for your life! In fact, a woman named Myah Marie might actually be the voice you hear on some Britney songs, like Will.I.Am's "Scream and Shout." Myah's dad says his daughter, who does backing vocals for Brit, actually sings for Britney. And you know, listening carefully to this, it's unclear whether or not Britney was even involved. Let's see, what else? After meeting on the set of Maleficent, Angelina Jolie is acting as a mentor for Elle Fanning. If you're wondering why Justin Timberlake has straight hair now, it's because Jessica Biel hates his hair curly. He loves his curls, but she prefers straight. So. Chris Brown and Rihanna are planning a wild wedding, says a source: "They want tattoo artists, fire breathers and a near-naked waitstafff." This might be happening as soon as July. Cindy Crawford was seen drunkenly hitting on "hot band guys" in Malibu recently, since her marriage is on the rocks and husband Rande Gerber has been cheating on her throughout the 14 years they've been together. Ugh. Finally, Will Smith's younger sister Ellen has a husband named Dee Laurence Downs, who has been indicted on a major federal cocaine-dealing charge. Drug felon in the family.

    Superfoxes Josh Brolin and Diane Lane are divorcing after eight years of marriage, according to their reps: "It was a mutual decision. It was amicable. It's not ugly, it's just over." (Guh.) It's the second marriage for both of them. Although this means our fantasy of James Brolin, Barbra Streisand, Josh and Diane playing mah jong on a porch somewhere after getting family-style Chinese dinner is kaput, it might be good news: a few months after their 2004 marriage, Brolin was arrested for spousal battery. The charges were dropped, and it was later referred to as a "misunderstanding."

    He also reportedly had a sinister-sounding "hands-on" conversation with Robin Wright in 2008, has gotten into multiple bar brawls and was arrested for public intoxication this past New Year's Eve. Get it together. :-| [TMZ, Us Weekly]

    They've been separated for a few months already, according to this report.


    Once again, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson may have gone the way of the dodo bird despite their attempts to overcome Rupert Sanders Crotchgrindinggate. However, the two are hanging on until every last Twi-Hard has snatched up the DVD of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2, "since the first couple weeks are the times when the DVD will sell like wildfire. The more DVDs sold, the more money for them. So they are abiding by the request."

    Because underneath that kohl eyeliner and sulky stares they are really just cylons created to produce hundies, the source does not say, but does not need to. [Entertainmentwise]


    Taylor Swift, totally one of those girls who's into English guys because of Mr. Darcy, "was hanging out with a lot of British music stars at the [Brit awards] after-party, and she was repeatedly overheard saying she would love to find herself a British boyfriend." (Haha, "repeatedly." Way to play it cool.)

    After her performance, which included some very grown-up thrusting (!), "Taylor was even getting her flirt on with Jordan Stephens of the Rizzle Kicks – they danced together – and she got behind the DJ decks at the shindig, at one point donning the headphones." [Radar Online]


    Unsurprisingly, this is how Mel Gibson gets his flirt on at the club, says a source. "He went over to her table and hit on her by saying, ‘You're so [bleeping] gorgeous.' Then he pulled out his phone and started Googling himself." [Page Six]

    • Clint Eastwood got swatted. I feel like we're over chair jokes but I can't think of anything else so idk: LOL @ general crotchety status? [TMZ]
    • The most important piece of investigative journalism in years is this thing about how much that annoying celebrity refrain "The gays love me!" is true. [Buzzfeed]
    • Britney Spears' new boyfriend Normal Dave is already being picked apart by the media buzzards. I like to think of myself more as a Great Egret personally. [TMZ]
    • Some kid who accomplishes the impressive feat of being in Twilight but also having basically nobody care about him (Bronson Pelletier? See, I told you) pled "no contest" to peeing in an airport, gets 2 years of probation. [TMZ]
    • Okay, Justin Bieber. Rein it in. [Daily Mail]
    • And stop buying Twitter followers. [PRWeb]
    • Nick Cannon fruitlessly tries to convince us that Mariah Carey is not a diva at home and does all the normal wife-and-mother stuff. Like vacuuming the carpet with an unplugged Hoover encrusted with diamonds for 3 minutes and then soaking in jasmine water for 6 hours. [The Sun]
    • Mumford and Sons "snubbed" One Direction backstage during the Brit Awards. [The Mirror UK]
    • Meanwhile, Boy George feuds with Liam Payne. [Gossip Cop]

    • Okay, so Liam Hemsworth's fiancee Miley Cyrus and Chris Hemsworth's wife Elsa Pataky have the same uncommon haircut, but maybe it's not as weird as we think? [NYDN]
    • An S&M themed photo shoot for V Magazine that leaked last year, featuring a topless Kate Moss and Rihanna, is officially out. [Radar Online]
    • Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are already flipping their new $11 million Bel Air place. [NYDN]
    • Meanwhile, Kim assures us that Keeping Up With the Kardashians is still her "number one priority," which is mostly just sad because it's not her $90,000 sneakers. [E!]

    While you were staggering home in a prosecco haze, celebrities were still out partying, and here's some post-Oscar nuggets for you to munch on. Okay, so yeah, Jennifer Lawrence fell down on her way to collect her Best Actress Oscar. We can perhaps attribute this to her previous confession that she was planning to get shithoused during the ceremony, and also because Lawrence and most of these women are wearing fucking TORTURE CHAMBER dresses and heels that are stilts, and those two things don't jive well. (It was either that or the Lena Dunham Golden Globes waddle.) Anyway, she accidentally/on purpose gave someone the finger in the press room after her win and then looked shocked. Amazing. [Just Jared]

    After that, she went to Soho House in Hollywood and had an "intense conversation" with Leonardo DiCaprio while resting her hand on Bradley Cooper's shoulder, which drew "envious stares from other women." [Page Six]


    While Seth MacFarlane flirted with the boundaries of propriety, The Onion was pushing the limits on Twitter: a tweet from the satirical publication, deleted about an hour it was posted, read "Everyone else seems afraid to say it, but Quvenzhané Wallis is kind of a cunt, right?" Naturally, it set Twitter alight. GOD, her dog purse is so much more important than any of this. [HuffPo]

    Also:


    Unsurprisingly, Elton John's huge annual Oscars party beat the one you went to last night, particularly because it benefited the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Heidi Klum wore a very low-cut dress ("A lot of people are complimenting my dress, but they aren't looking into my eyes when they say it"... "I'm worried about it because my boobs could fall into my dinner, so I'm being very careful."), Anna Paquin used a lint brush on Stephen Moyer, Matthew Morrison, Chris Colfer, Bono, Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj were also in attendance. And then they all fucked. JK. [Page Six]

    BAAH, and also John and David Furnish's son Zachary Furnish-John in a babytuxedo. [Hello Magazine]

    Jim Carrey was there too, and he wore huge fake feet. I worry about him. [vh1]

    Oh and Britney Spears, who is NOW A BRUNETTE. Life, forever altered. [Daily Mail]


    Why was Kristen Stewart limping and cranky at the Oscars? She stepped on broken glass.

    Anne Hathaway, holding her new Oscar, ran into Kristen Stewart, who was on crutches, backstage.

    "Oh no!" Hathaway said.

    "I know, I'm an idiot," Stewart replied. "But congratulations!"

    "Please tell me you're going on stage with those," Hathaway said, pointing to the crutches.

    "Nope. I'm gonna hobble," Stewart said.

    "Well, break a leg," Hathaway said. "Oops."

    Meenwhilez, Christina Applegate married her longtime boyfriend Martyn LeNoble, the father of her 2-year-old daughter Sadie Grace in a small private ceremony on top of a mountain, and there were flutes playing and trombones and flowers and garlands of fresh herbs. And they danced 'till the sun rose, and their children will form a family band, and you were not invited. [Us Weekly]

    It's not notable in, like, a world history kind of a way, but you have to admit that BRITNEY'S NEW HAIR LOOKS REALLY GOOD, YOU GUYS. And she seems to have a vigor and a pulled-togetherness about her that we haven't seen from Brit-Brit in years.

    She's got a new man in her life, a hit single with will.i.am, and she's supposedly recording her eighth studio album as we speak. So what's up with Brit's new look? Blake Jacobs says Britney's hair color has always been a barometer of her mental health. "It's a lot like the TSA terror alerts: Blonde means relatively low risk, brown is an elevated threat level, pink means we're at a very high risk, and bald is HOLY CRAP, EVERYBODY RUN FOR HIGHER GROUND." So what do you think? Does a non-blonde Brit mean a return to the nutty days of yore? Or that she's she's settling down?

    I don't know what it means but I'm PRO. [WoW]


    Denise Richards tweeted at Charlie Sheen to go to bed last night.

    The mother of three, who divorced Sheen in May 2011 after three years of marriage, wrote back, "Come help me clean the damn garage for their playroom."

    "I'm BUSY LADY! LOOK!" Sheen tweeted with a picture of himself hanging out with a friend.

    "Yes I see," Richards replied. "Time to pack it in and GO TO BED you have a 5:30am call . . . 3 1/2 hrs so get your ass up to your room."

    But her ex-husband wasn't done with his night of fun. The Anger Management actor wrote back, "I SAID LOOK!" with a second photo of himself holding a bottle and digging in his fridge.

    "Charles . . . not to be a buzzkill . . . But this is the point where the night can go sideways," Richards answered him.

    Sigh. I hope some day I can find a man who's actually an enormous drunk toddler and literally needs me to give him a bedtime even after we're broken up. [Us]


    Wait, what? Andy Samberg is marrying Joanna Newsom? I am not against that at all, but I was not aware.

    No joke — Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg is getting married! A rep for the actor confirms to Us Weekly exclusively that the 34-year-old funnyman is engaged to his girlfriend of five years, singer-songwriter Joanna Newsom.

    Samberg was smitten with the 31-year-old musician even before they met through mutual friends. "He liked her music and would go to her shows," a pal told Us last year. "He had the biggest crush on her."

    Newsom is equally enamored of her beau. "She respects what he does with his songs," the friend said, referring to Samberg's quirky tracks ("I'm on a Boat!") with comedy troupe Lonely Island. "She's so proud of everything that he has accomplished."

    The happy couple have kept a relatively low profile over the last five years, preferring quiet date nights at home to all-night parties. Added the pal: "They have great chemistry."

    They've been together for FIVE YEARS? I am stupid and don't pay attention to anything. [Us]


    Hoh-hoh-hohhh, Gerard Depardieu is a real Russian now.

    The French film legend officially registered as a resident of the Russian city of Saransk on Saturday. This is the final step in his quest to become a Russian citizen after he renounced his French citizenship amid a dispute over taxes.

    Per the Christian Science Monitor, Depardieu took an apartment on Democracy Street in the heart of downtown Saransk in the Republic of Mordovia. The move was required so he could provide a home address, thereby allowing him to receive key public services including access to schools and health care in his newly adopted country.

    "As she sits drinking lavender lemonade,*" Taylor Swift tells Vanity Fair that everyone—including, and especially, other ladies in Hollywood—needs to shut the fuck up about how many penises are/may be in orbit around her:

    "If you want some big revelation, since 2010 I've dated exactly two people. [...] For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that's taking something that potentially should be celebrated-a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way-that's taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist."

    Swift, who covers the April issue of VF, adds that after so-called "Mean Girl" incidents—most recently, she says, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler mocking her love life at the Golden Globe—she recalls a quote Katie Couric ("one of [Swift's] favorite people") gave her: "There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women." Oof.

    *of course. [Just Jared, Vanity Fair]

    Although T-Swizzle wouldn't speak on her exes, she authorized a source to do so. "[Harry] was all, like, ‘You're amazing – I want to be with you. I want to do this.'" Then a friend sent Swift a picture of Styles and some girl "making out like with their hands all up in each other's hair," and that was The Day The Trust Died. Riveting stuff. [Hollywood Life]


    Dennis Rodman was thrown out of a hotel bar in Midtown right after visiting Kim Jong Un with other Harlem Globetrotters for an HBO/Vice special. "He kept saying what a nice guy Kim is, and how Kim just wants to talk to President Obama about basketball. He was waving around a signed copy of the dictator's huge manifesto, telling everyone they should read it." You know, if you guys were wondering what Dennis Rodman was up to these days. [Page Six]


    Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux will be married in Hawaii in a few weeks, but she does not want to do it in his old fuck den:

    "Jen would have liked to have done it at home in Los Angeles but it looks like that would be too difficult to keep quiet," a source told The Sun.

    "She doesn't want to get married with photographers buzzing around her head in helicopters."

    "Justin just adores Hawaii. It's his favourite place in the world and he has a little house on the island of Kauai," the source added.

    "His cottage is too small to host the wedding and Jen thinks it has too many memories of his old flames anyway. But they both love the island and the idea of a laid back Hawaii wedding in the sunshine."

    The hip-ass couple comprised of Knocked Up's Jay Baruchel and The Newsroom's Alison Pill are no more. The two, who have been engaged since 2010, had plans to marry in Quebec in September. Judging by some Tweets that Baruchel has since deleted, it seems not-so-mutual.

    The This Is the End actor hinted about their split on Twitter Feb. 16. "Alone again, naturally. Heartbroken," he wrote in a message that he later deleted. "I won't be on twitter for awhile gang. Getting dumped rules."

    (He was back on Twitter the next day, natch.) [Us Weekly]


    Brody Jenner, privileged Los Angeles gadabout and one-time cast member of The Hills, has heard the cries of the people. "We want your greasy smirkface back on reality television!" they cried. At last, he has acquiesced and will be appearing on new episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. His reps say that he "is joining the show but may not be in every episode. It depends on the storyline." Jenner has been "chilling" and "trying to figure out what to do with his life" since splitting from Avril Lavigne over a year ago. [Us Weekly]

    Although Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Justin Theroux, Jennifer Aniston, Chandler Bing and that duck called a truce at some point, as Brangelina's and Jenreaux's (?) marriages draw nearer, threatening to even land sort of around the same time, some obvious problems become apparent.

    As usual, Aniston is depicted one hair away from being the crazed nemesis of Brangelina, who are planning to wed in France just after the Cannes Film Festival ends in May.*

    "All that goodwill would go out the window if Brad's wedding date comes close to hers. Jennifer will see it as an attempt to upstage her and there will be a battle over Hollywood guests.

    She knows they will be judged on who had the better wedding by pulling in the biggest stars."

    To that end, I will now proceed to cut Matt LeBlanc in half the long way. The one who objects is the one who truly deserves him. [The Sun]

    *Doesn't that sentence make you want to hock out a hairball?



    While Selena Gomez's little choreographed videos with her girls are kind of a silent-to-us dog whistle that only appeal to the Youngs (I sure as shit don't get why they exist), her newest one is set to a song with lines like: "Everybody knows your boyfriend is a douchebag." Does this have any special significance because her ex Justin Bieber has been acting like a douchebag? Let's unnecessarily parse this information about two strangers. :D?!

    "Selena has kept an eye on Justin in the news and just laughed and laughed. She doesn't give a s**t anymore. Justin is crazy and she doesn't want to be his mom anymore. She feels so free and loves hanging out with her girlfriends. He's weird and she doesn't find his behaviour hot or anything. She just wants a man who has his shit together, and not a weird boy... he's turned into exactly the kind of person she doesn't want to be with."

    Zzzzz. Sorry, what? [HuffPo]

    Like most of us, Sarah Jessica Parker and her bunions Couldn't Help But Wonder® why the crap The Carrie Diaries is even a thing.

    "I'm not sure… You know, I think it's one of those tests of your generosity. She [AnnaSophia Robb, who plays Bradshaw] is a lovely girl and I want her to feel good about it, but it's… odd."

    "HBO was very encouraging of the beyond-camera role I played, and I feel that had we not done it, I don't know that would have existed for Girls. It's such a different way of thinking and it's not conventional. I also think [Lena Dunham] came along understanding her voice and with the support of a producing partner [Judd Apatow] experienced enough to say she is capable of this, she needs to be in charge of the story as it's her voice. I do feel Sex and the City's success made that possible, and it would have been different otherwise."

    Everything your blobby, unformed 7th grade brain gleaned from Velvet Goldmine is basically true, according to David Bowie's ex-wife Angie, who stumbled on Aladdin Sane in the sack with Mick Jagger.

    "My assistant was laughing in the kitchen when I got home. She said, 'You won't believe this. David and Mick Jagger.'

    "I said, 'Right then, put the kettle on'. I went upstairs and banged on the door and said, 'Morning! Ready for breakfast, boys?'

    "I walked into the bedroom and David was there with all these pillows and duvets on top of him and on the other side of the bed was Mick's leg sticking out.

    "I said: 'Did you guys have a good night?'. They were so hungover they could hardly speak. I took pity on them."

    Here's a reminder that we're all getting so old, all of the time. If this doesn't send you straight back to the late 90s/early aughts, maybe that's because you weren't born yet. For the rest of us, please enjoy Bit Bit saying fun things like "everyone has been doing e-mails!" and "Oh my goodness!" Ugh, she's the best.

    The best part has to be at 2:45 with sweet Xavier — a young audience member who doesn't look thrilled to have a 17-year-old girl sing at him about being born to make him happy. Here's hoping the Spears camp paid for his inevitable trauma counseling.

    Single mom Connie Britton and her 2-year-old son Eyob and her jumbo glasses of white whine on Friday Night Lights and her perfect HAIR that is every effervescent, shimmering color that hair can be! I cannot.

    Connie Britton may be a single mom, but her son apparently thinks she also sings "Single Ladies!"

    When the actress's recent MORE cover came out around the same time as Beyoncé‘s GQ spread, Britton put 2-year-old Yoby to the test.

    "I had them both in my house and my son was looking at [them]. I said, ‘Do you see Mommy?' He points at Beyoncé and says, ‘Mommy,'" the Nashville star, 45, tells PEOPLE at the PaleyFest Saturday.

    But Britton took her son's mistake in stride, choosing to see the identity confusion as a compliment. "I was like, ‘That's my boy,'" she jokes.

    Okay, now that I've actually typed it out there might be some racial identity issues suggested here, as Yoby's black and adopted, but the kid's too young for that, right? [Bossip]

    I mean, how hard is it to catch a flight? This is a rhetorical question for Lindsay Lohan, who missed her plane last night from New York to attend her trial in L.A. this morning. (We're now on her twenty-something trial. When you move into the double digits, you should get a free Shakeweight or some turtle wax or an IHop coupon, right?)

    Apparently she bounced from her original flight because she thought the plane was "unsafe" and has now chartered a private jet courtesy of energy drink company Mr. Pink. As we write this she has less than two hours to make it to court. Game on.

    Our Lindsay faces charges of lying to a police officer about a car crash, reckless driving and violating her probation for a shoplifting conviction, and may be sent to the clink if she's found guilty of any of the above; she may have to serve 245 days. Her attorney Mark Heller insists that it's not an issue of substance abuse anymore:

    "She does not need rehab," Heller told reporters after the last hearing. "I am hoping we will be able to come to some creative out-of-the-box answer."

    Lohan is already undergoing "one-on-one psychotherapy," he said.

    "Lindsay doesn't have a problem with alcohol and drugs," Heller said. "Lindsay has other types of issues that are being dealt with."

    On the latest episode of PBS's turn-of-the-century English drama Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kourtney and Kim decided to have a competition to see whose vagina smelled better, and... actually, wait, let me just copy and paste because I can't.

    When Khloe finally joined them in London, her older siblings shocked her by carrying out the plan, and in eye-popping scenes led the sisters in taking it in turns to wipe themselves on hand towels and forcing her to smell it.

    'Do I want to be the judge of the pineapple p****? Not really,' Khloe said. 'But we're sisters - If can't smell their p****** what else am I supposed to do?'

    Kourtney was the first to present her towel, with Khloe sniffing and saying: 'Mmm, smells like a tropical island.'

    As Kim walked out, Khloe told her 'I'm not smelling Kanye's ****', but Kim forced her towel on her.
    'Oooh,' Khloe said, blushing. 'It smells like a flower p****.'

    As the sisters waited for her decision, she finally said: 'Honestly, I will say that Kim's p**** smells the best."

    Taylor Swift said stuff. Look, it's a slow news day. Roll with it. Here she admits that "I Knew You Were Trouble" was about Harry Styles and discusses singing at the Brit Awards in that insane wedding dress with her ex-boyfriend in the audience:

    ''Well, it's not hard to access that emotion when the person the song is directed at is standing by the side of the stage watching ... You're balancing the analytical side of your brain which is telling you where to go and how to go there, with the other side of your brain, which is saying, 'Feel everything you're singing, and show it on your face. Feel everything exactly as you felt it when you wrote the song.'"

    And here she is on wearing sneakers and sitting on the bleachers and being the one who makes you laugh when you know you're about to cry.

    ''There's really no sound quite as loud as a phone not ringing, a letter unanswered. I don't quite understand it, because I either want to be with you or I don't ... I really don't feel like pursuing something that isn't real or isn't going somewhere, so if it's established that someone's commitment-phobic, I'm sorry - go be commitment-phobic with someone else. Because I'm not trying to scare you, I'm not pointing a gun at you; I'm offering to be with you.''

    One great way to make that really clear is to wear a wedding dress everywhere, always. [Contact Music]


    So it's come to this. Robert Pattinson is hiding from Kristen Stewart in the Outback. While he films his next movie The Rover in the middle of Bumblefuck, Australia, he's enjoying the peace and quiet for the next three weeks, at which point he has to go back to L.A. and talk to K-Stew.

    Um! Janet Hubert, who played Aunt Viv on Great Show of Our Time The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air wrote a letter to Wendy Williams after the talk show host asked guest Tatyana Ali why Hubert left the show. (Williams alluded to the bad blood between Hubert and Will Smith.)

    The letter is not very nice. Here are some choice selections.

    Wendy Williams, or whatever you are supposed to be, I'm not quite sure. I'm writing you yet again, to appeal to your sense of womanhood or manhood as some suggest. Please close your mouth about things that you know nothing of.

    You are such a demon Wendy. You are wicked, awful, conniving, sinister, spiteful, jealous of every other woman. Simply put, Wendy you are a virus. You are not nor have you ever been a true woman. It seems as though your audience thirsts for the blood of others, as they are prompted to clap and hoop and holler at your shows and wigs and clothes.

    Girl you will have some stars on your show and demean them before they even make it back home. I just would like to know who died and told you that you were reborn as Oprah. You want to be Oprah so bad that you would kill for it and you will kill anyone to achieve success. Sister, you will never be another Oprah. Oprah lifted her audience up and exuded an air of class.

    So, here is my advice to you Wendy. I want to help you. Learn to sit in a chair and stop fidgeting with yourself on camera. Wipe your giant teeth off camera, and don't smear the spit on the chair. Please put some sweat pits under your arms, and darling if your sweater is pulling until there are lines across your chest, its too tight. You might want to deflate those tremendous breast. Take off the fake blonde hair. You have to stop playing the race card because you are coming off like a want to be white girl who will never be white.

    Now take that, chew it my dear and stick it on your lord have mercy you are disgusting fly ridden gum wall. And that's the advice I have for you my sister. Peace.

    Read it here in full. I picture it stapled to the front door of Williams' house like Martin Luther's 95 theses nailed to the church door. [NYDN]

    Glee star and "Frankenteen" Cory Monteith, who's previously been open about his troubled past as a delinquent teenager, has checked into rehab for substance abuse. His rep confirms to People: "[Monteith] has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction [...] He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery."

    Monteith, now 30, began drinking at age 13 and went to rehab for the first time at 19, after three years of "doing every and any [drug], as much as possible" and stealing a large amount of money from a family member. (He's previously said of his troubles: "I don't want kids to think it's okay to drop out of school and get high, and they'll be famous actors, too.")

    Lea Michele, Monteith's girlfriend and Glee co-star, has issued an official statement:

    "I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this," she tells PEOPLE exclusively. "I am grateful and proud he made this decision."

    And so has Fox:

    "Cory is a beloved member of the Glee family and we fully support his decision to seek treatment. Everyone at the show wishes him well and looks forward to his return."

    Now that your boyfriend Ryan Gosling has quit acting, he has all the time in the world to nearly come to blows with strangers over Eva Mendes' honor.

    We're told the pair, in town for the premiere of their new movie, "The Place Beyond the Pines," were at the Bowery Hotel Friday when a fashion photographer who had recently shot Mendes saw her and shouted, "Hey, baby!" "Ryan completely flipped out, and it got heated," says an eyewitness. "Ryan got in the guy's face and said, ‘Who are you calling baby?' Eva had to jump in and calm everyone down before it came to fisticuffs. Ryan then made nice and shook the guy's hand."

    There's been no movement on the Lindsay Lohan front, although two weeks ago she was sentenced to 90 days in "lockdown rehab" (which doesn't exist, by the way). Meanwhile, she's been partying in Brazil and allegedly stealing shit from the set of Anger Management. But apparently there was one absurd clause to Lohan's compliance with the rehab deal:

    She'd agree to rehab ONLY if the facility would allow her to continue taking Adderall.

    Apparently LiLo's been abusing Adderall since 2010, when she got a prison doctor to prescribe it. Her lawyer, incredibly, said he'd find a place that would accommodate her request. Logic fail! And also, it doesn't exist. [TMZ, TMZ]

    As the Rihanna bacchanal—Rihacchanal?—known as the Diamonds tour continues to suffer under the weight of four concert cancellations (Boston, March 10; Baltimore, March 12; Houston, April 15; Dallas, April 16) and late publicity appearances, the rumor mill was fed by her paparazzi-snapped exit from a Beverly Hills medical building.

    Her reps say that she's suffering from the flu and laryngitis, and her friends add that she's depressed that her sickness is forcing her to let her fans down, but the tabloids persist on providing us with unsolicited Ri-Ri uterus updates that claim she's got Chris Brown's bun in the oven.

    Nope nope nope nope. A source says: "[Rihanna] is just sick, and that’s really it. I know, that’s not a good enough reason because everybody wants some drama and the rumors that she’s pregnant to make the rounds, but sorry, not this time. She’s not pregnant!” [Hollywood Life, E!, TMZ]


    Billy Ray Cyrus didn't write much about Miley and Liam Hemsworth's relationship in his memoir Hilbilly Heart (LOLZ) because he isn't sure they're gonna get married/she's just being Miley, etc. "I don't know, I really don't. They're young. They're kids. The great news is, they're great friends. They're really, really good friends. If you end up getting married, that's your business too, you know?" Miley's gonna be sooooo maaaaad. [AOL Music]

    Furthermore, when Liam asked for Billy Ray's consent after he proposed, Billy Ray made a joke: "I jokingly said, 'Can I be in your brother's next movie?' And then I said, 'No, I'm joking.' It was a good question. He never did answer ... I should have said next two movies! And get me in that film of his too.''" What a funny joke! It's so funny! He totally wasn't joking! [TV3ie]

    Russell Brand informed Conan O'Brien that he attempted to get Tom Cruise to play Scientology's Pied Pieper on the set of their movie Rock Of Ages, but Tom wasn't biting. (Remember, this was around the dissolve of TomKat, so he had other things on his mind. Like aliens.) Brand told Conan:

    "Every so often I'd say things like 'oh Tom, sometimes I'm a bit lost in life' to see if he would try and get me in and he'd go 'oh yeh, I dunno, read the bible. Or 'Tom, I wish I had a way of thinking more positively about the future." [But] that man had no interest in getting me into Scientology at all... If there’s a cult that don't want me, I want to know why!"

    Ah, Russell. We like you godless and slithery.


    Bryce Dallas Howard, who directed one of the Jennifer Aniston-produced lifetime shorts that comprise the five-part "Call Me Crazy," said that mental illness had a special significance to her since suffering from post-partum depression after the birth of her first child in 2007. "It went untreated for eighteen months because I was just so ashamed and frightened. I didn't know what it meant and didn't know what happened to me. Getting to have an opportunity to tell a story that is about mental illness and how it affects one's self and one's community was really something that really meant a lot to me." [Us Weekly]

    As Ana Steele would say, "Argh!" In a desperate bid to land the directing gig for Universal's Fifty Shades of Grey, Gus Van Sant sent the studio an unsolicited test tape of a sex scene from the book, starring Alex Pettyfer as Christian Grey and an "unnamed actress" (offff course) as Anastasia:

    The scene, insiders said, is when the ingénue Anastasia Steele loses her virginity to Grey.

    While Pettyfer hasn't been on the shortlist of actors reportedly in talks for the role, none of that shit ever seems to be true, so whatever.
    Universal and Focus have declined to comment on any list stories, long or short, though a Universal spokesperson said that the studio isn't out to directors or actors, nor have they commissioned any test reels. WME has also declined comment.

    Katy Perry has filed a $6.5 million counterclaim against the hair product company GHD (Good Hair Day) for breaching the terms of their endorsement contract. They continued to use her image on their website despite the fact that the deal was broken by November of 2014 due to Perry's "significant [decrease] in market appeal." [THR]

And I don't think it really did anything very beneficial to me so, yeah, I wouldn't probably do it again."

Also taking part are Josh Groban, Sophia Bush, Debi Mazar and Gabriele Corcos.

I give Ben one day. He seems like he can't go 48 hours without a Keebler fix. [TIME]

    In an interview with Redbook, Khloe Kardashian klarified that she is not jealous of Kim for getting pregnant with the Kimye-by and that just because she has fertility problems she isn't the jealous, spiteful baby monger tabloids say she is.

    “People assume I’m desperate for a baby,” she says. “And yes, I would love to have a baby. But I’m 28, and I’ve been married three and a half years. I love my life, but it doesn’t feel incomplete right now. Please. People want to assume that I’m devastated [about Kim's pregnancy]. I couldn't be happier. I actually got mad at Kourtney, because she was afraid to tell me at first. So I get why people think I’m hurt, because my own sister thought I would be.

    I do think [sharing] my difficulty getting pregnant has helped a lot of women...Do I wish people would quit asking me about it 24/7? Yes, but I don’t regret [talking about] it. I was 26 when that started, and I admit, I didn’t know a lot about my body."

Aside from the scrub fiance, they seem to have a great relationship:

    In 2005, Julia “exploded” when she caught her little sister snapping photos of her newborn twins, and in 2011 they got into an argument went Julia made “disparaging” remarks about Nancy’s weight.

    More importantly, is that really the best job Julia fucking Roberts could get a family member? Freshening Matthew Morrison's Jheri-curl? [Radar Online]

    After three years of dating, Vampire Diaries' onscreen and real-life couple Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have broken up. But TV's low-key equivalent of K-Stew and R-Patz will stay civil on the show because — quoth a source — they're "consummate professionals," and "will continue to work together and remain best friends, which is where the relationship started."

    There's a very good chance that this is untrue, but there's a rumor floating around that Dobrev gave Somerhalder an ultimatum once he was on the list of actors being considered for the role of Christian Grey in Fifty Shades: Get Dobrev in as Ana, or else don't accept the part.

    (Back in 2009, she told Glamour: "I have had to work hard at getting it back to where it used to be. I used to be obsessed with working out. …[now], three days a week is cool, even two.") She's on the Nutrisystem plan — a shake for breakfast and lunch plus a dinner of protein and vegetables.

    Rihanna has filed a $5 million lawsuit against Topshop for using images of her on T-shirts without her consent. Apparently Team Ri-Ri tried to negotiate with Topshop for the last eight months — and spent at least $1 million on litigation — but they offered her a measly $5,000 and told her to do her damndest, says a source: "What is most offensive for Rihanna is that they basically told her, ‘Go to hell. We don’t care; we are going to continue selling you."

    The loophole that owner Sir Philip Green and co. use to get away with this is that "[they] buy the pictures from a photographer, but they do not pay the artist licensing fees. Unfortunately, U.K. law does not protect the artist." [Page Six, Bossip]


    Incongruously, Emma Watson's Hollywood crush is Kevin Costner ("I met him in an elevator the other day. I couldn't even speak.)

    I’ve never wanted to grow up too fast: I wanted to wear a sports bra until I was 22! The allure of being sexy never really held any excitement for me. I’ve never been in a terrible rush to be seen as a woman.

    Also, these two final lines win:

She has been exercising, but she just doesn’t have a lot of energy because she is no longer taking Adderall, which is a psychostimulant medication that contains amphetamine. She has been talking to a nutritionist at Betty Ford about eating healthier."

    Victoria's Secret Finally Finds Kate Upton Worthy Of Its Tacky Bras

    Once Upton a time (last year), a Victoria's Secret model booker said the brand would never deign to hire Kate Upton because her look was "too obvious." For a store that sells boyshorts for 14-year-olds with "I Get Around" written in glitter on the ass, mind you. "We would never use Kate... She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy." Of course, this was before Upton appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated twice as well as this month's Vogue. NBD.

    So it's understandable that Upton would be furious about VS using photos of her from 2011 in their new catalogue — quickly hitting the Internet along with rumors that Upton could be the next Angel. A source on Team Upton clarifies: “Kate’s not currently contracted to work with Victoria’s Secret, and they didn’t contact her before they used these images.” Fucked up. [Page Six]


    Victoria's Secret Finally Finds Kate Upton Worthy Of Its Tacky Bras

    Model Chrissy Teigen took to TwitterAmanda Bynes' stomping ground — to voice her disapproval of the current state of Bynes' affairs. “The fact that Amanda Bynes has any ‘support’ to retweet is really unsettling. Support people with mental illness, yes. But don’t condone/enable scary and poor behavior.”

    Naturally, Bynes did not take to this, responding:

    @chrissyteigen Ur not a pretty model compared to me. I signed to Ford models @ age 13. I don’t look up to u beauty wise. I’m far prettier than u! I’m offended that you’re saying I have a mental illness when I show no sign of it, but thankfully not one man that wants me wants you and you are an old ugly model compared to me! You look 45! You’re not pretty so I’m not intimidated by you! I think you’re jealous that you’re just an ugly model whos career is uninspiring! I don’t respect you! You’re no beauty queen! I’m a beauty queen!

    Bynes' parents are currently seeking a conservatorship for Amanda, who refuses to let them intervene at all — in fact, she says she's currently suing them for money laundering.

    Says a source close to the Bynes family, “Amanda has heard voices for years, and was concerned she was being spied on via smoke alarms, and clocks in her home. She would cover electronic items because Amanda believed that was the only way she wouldn’t be spied on. It’s extremely sad situation because Amanda just refuses to get help.” [E!, Radar Online]

    "You don't have to look like a movie star/I think you're good just the way you are," Britney Spears sings/high pitch screeches in her song "Ooh La La" for the new Smurfs 2, because apparently the original The Smurfs movie was not enough animated blue people for the world to handle.

    For the video for this FFF (Family Friendly Flick), Spears brought her sons Preston and Jayden along, who she's apparently started early on the hair gel. They are both super cute, especially at the end when they don't really know what to do and just stand there holding her hands. "I have always loved the Smurfs as a kid and now my boys are the biggest Smurfs fans EVER. I wanted to surprise them with a song in the movie," she said when news of the song came out in April.

    "Ooh La La" is barely tolerable and all but what have they done with her foot tattoo?
