Just a Dash of Celebrity Dish


 


Have you seen the new Ryan Phillipe / Channing Tatum flick STOP-LOSS?  What a wet dream waiting to happen. Poor Ryan, he has been plagued for years with gay rumors. Did you catch  him on Jay Leno last week? What’s wrong with Jay? Is he smoking Whitney’s crack pipe?   Leno put  Phillipe on the hotseat and asked him to give his “Gayest Look.”

“Say that camera is your gay lover…Can you give me your gayest look? Say that camera is Billy Bob [Thornton] – Billy Bob has just ridden in shirtless from Wyoming.” – Can you smell a lawsuit here? Ryan replied, “That is so something I don’t want to do. Are you just going to embarrass me tonight?”




Harry Potters Daniel Radcliffe admits to feeling a little queer…sometimes.  Danny admitted that he felt a little queer after downing some drinks and becoming a little tipsy last week. Before we get our panties in a knot, remember, the British definition of “queer” is “strange.”




“Yep, I admit I felt a little queer” Daniel laughed out. “I am not proud of it but it was one of those things. I just drank too much. I feel fine now though.” Come now Daniel… you know what happens to drunk straight boys around other curious men…


Radcliffe had a nasty hangover the following morning after throwing up and noted “I went all queer” and that he felt like staying in bed.


Daniel’s current screen mate, Rupert Grint accompanied the boy wizard that evening but, mentions no recollection of the night. “Danny may have brushed past me once or twice, I am sure it was unintentional.”


Sooner or later it had to happen; Perez Hilton is being sued. The celeb blogger has just been bitch slapped  by Sony BMG with a lawsuit  and he’s definitely not going to go down without a fight.


The music giant claims his  streaming of several unreleased and unauthorized Britney Spears songs on his website was not kosher. Perez writes on his website “When these songs first leaked, there was a lot of doubt as to whether they were Britney or a fake. Plus, we never made any music downloadable.”


The celebrity blogger adds “Every time we saw a take-down notice from the R.I.A.A., we complied immediately. By the way, no one at Sony BMG ever contacted us about Britney.”


Perez swears to not support any future Sony BMG artist on his website. Isn’t  everyone on Sony?


Mariah Carey beats Elvis Presley’s 17 #1 hits. Her 18th #1 hit the charts this week. “Touch My Body“. The new CD will be out April 15th, she will be on Oprah on the 14th and American Idol on the 9th and 16th!  PR,  PR,  PR!

According to various U.K. tabloids, singer Joss Stone is going to play a lesbian in her first movie role.She has allegedly signed on to play a lesbian bingo-caller in the indie British film Snappers, which stars Chloe Howman as an actress who flees to a local caravan park to get away from the paparazzi while filming on location in Torbay, Devon. –  Now I don’t want to be sued here…but I kind of thought she was a lesbian! oops.

Returning to the U.S. to make a fortune in the self-help biz, his unorthodox methods are put to the test when he provides marriage counseling to a hockey star. The wife of the hockey star retaliates by starting to date a rival player (Timberlake).

OPRAH – THE STORE. A lot of retail brick and mortar shops these days have closed and switched to online marketing. Oprah is doing it backwards.  Her online store has been so successful she is now opening a retail store in Chicago, near her studio, where fans can purchase many things like baby products, home accessories, workout gear and South African crafts.

TORI SPELLING‘s  tell-all book comes out in a few days! The former star of Beverly Hills: 90210 dishes on her very public life. – “I spent so many years in the media having people tell stories about my life, so I figured I might as well tell the true stories about my life this time.

The Britney Law?  The L.A. City Council is considering an ordinance that would impose a 20-yard “personal safety bubble” around those public figures in the city who are construed by the law to be “paparazzi targets.”

Several weeks ago, VOTE FOR THE WORST exposed American Idol hottie David Hernandez as a stripper and bartender at a gay bar called  BURN  in  Arizona. Idol does not seem concerned however. – “We’ve had strippers on the show before,” Idol executive producer Ken Warwick told TV Guide’s website. “We’re never judgmental about people who do things like that. If it were some sort of heavy porn, then maybe we’d have to take action.  But certainly not on this.”

In other Idol scandals rocker nurse Amanda Overmyer had spent time in the slammer for a DUI and it is rumoured that Robbie Carrico wears a weave!  What next? Don’t tell me cuties David Archuleta  and Danny Noriega are  gay lovers!

I AM NOT ONE TO GOSSIP, BUT…..it’s  Friday and  superstar Justin Timberlake has been unveiled as the new spokesmodel for fragrance house Parfums Givenchy, because he is “modern elegance” personified, ALLEGEDLY!


The SexyBack hitmaker will front a new advertising campaign for an as-yet-unknown men’s fragrance this autumn. – Alain Lorenzo, Parfums Givenchy’s president, says, “Beyond his immense international notoriety, we chose Justin Timberlake because he’s a true trendsetter who has redefined modern elegance.” – yeah right, and both gay men and women happen to LOVE HIM!

 

In more designer news… we’ve got Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton, a documentary about the out fashion designer, Marc Jacobs, who is the driving force behind the Louis Vuitton name. Think of it as Project Runway without anyone getting “auffed” by Heidi!


 


Ricky Martin – YIKES!  Whats up with that bear cub look? Has Ricky ditched his rico-suave look for a bristly bear cub?? He won a couple awards last week at the Premio Lo Nuestro awards in Miami and sported a hairy look….and a few extra pounds.


 

Oscar  mania  this weekend!
Just in time for the Oscars – Hollywood sighed with relief when the Writer’s Strike ended.  


The show will go on but the parties won’t.  Vanity Fair’s big daddy of all Oscar parties pulled their plug a few weeks ago. The strike also resulted in other casualties: the People magazine party and the bash that ‘young’ Hollywood always looks forward to, the late night soiree of uber-manager Rick Yorn and super agent Patrick Whitesell were also  cancelled.


Outside of the Governor’s Ball, the no-brainer first stop of the Oscar night party circuit, what’s a celeb to do? Where is Jeffrey Sanker when you need him?!


Well, her Madonna has stepped up to the plate and put together a ‘last minute’ party with the help of her manager, Guy Oseary, and pal Demi Moore.


The party will reportedly take place in the Westside hills (we’re guessing Brentwood?). A few hundred people have been invited. Someone who’s seen the guest list said, “Everybody’s on it. It gives the A-list Vanity Fair crowd someplace to go to. It will probably be pared down to where it’s 85% talent, not a lot of suits.”


It’s also been reported that Prince is hosting an Oscar’s bash at his new Benedict Canyon home. According to a source, the RSVP list supposedly includes, “Kate and Tom, Will Smith, Salma and Penelope.” – Hmmmm,  mine must have gotten lost in the mail!


  


Taylor Dayne is back again. After talking about a comeback for 3 years, finally, her new album is out. It was 20 years ago this month that “Tell It to My Heart” hit the charts and transformed her into a late-’80s dance-pop star. Now 45 and the single mother of 5-year-old twins Astaria and Levi, which she had by surrogate, Dayne is plotting a comeback.
SATISFIED  is  getting some mixed reviews – Her First album in 10 years with 13 brand new tracks! 


On Broadway – The first musical of the 2007-08 season already is in sight.


Xanadu,” based on the campy 1980 film about a Greek muse who helps a young man build a disco roller rink, will open June 26 at the Helen Hayes Theatre. Preview performances begin May 23.


The musical will star Kerry Butler as Kira, the role played in the movie by Olivia Newton-John. The film also featured Michael Beck and the legendary Gene Kelly.- No other casting for the musical was announced but the show has a book by Douglas Carter Beane, author of this season’s “The Little Dog Laughed.” It will feature songs from the movie by John Farrar and Jeff Lynne.


In other Broadway news,  hot hunk Mario Lopez will make his Broadway debut in the revival of “A Chorus Line.” He won’t be hoofing up his heels, as he did with “Dancing With The Stars” but instead will play Zach, the producer, mostly a voice really for most of the show. The ink is not dry yet on his contract and word has it “Chicago“, which is still running on Broadway, wants him for a 6 or 8 week run to boost their sales…..


 



GAY CARE BEARS NEWS –
$17,000 FOR a DAVID HYDE PIECE AND CLAY AIKEN autograph ?

Last week, out actor Bryan Batt (Mad Men) hosted Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS annual Broadway Bears fundraiser which raised $127,000 for the worthy organization.

 


The event raises money by auctioning off teddy bears dressed as famous Broadway character such as Ariel from The Little Mermaid and Elphaba from Wicked. (Alas, there was no Edna Turnblad from Hairspray, who is already halfway to teddy bear as it is!). Most are then autographed by the stars who (mostly) wore the same costumes for the shows.


So which bear snagged the most moola? It was Sir Robin Spamalot signed by David Hyde Pierce and Clay Aiken, and the winning bid was $17,000.

  That’s all the dirt that’s fit to print this week!  See you in 2 weeks!  Toodles!

Thank God It’s Friday….Somewhere!

I AM NOT ONE TO GOSSIP, BUT…..it’s  Friday and

For comedienne Joan Rivers, almost everything is fair game: race, sex, death and, of course, her life. That’s the subject on her latest project, an autobiographical play, Joan Rivers: A Work in Progress by a Life in Progress, which premiered this week at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles.

 


“I’m truly working the best angle, and that’s age. Age has freed me — I don’t have to hold back on anything. I’ve never worked so strongly and so freely in my life. And that’s because I have nothing to lose. I’ve already been fired. I’ve already been bankrupt. I’ve already had the suicide. I’ve already had my daughter not talk to me for a while. I’ve already had all kinds of things taken from me. So I might as well say what I think,” River says.

Kathy Griffin  will not be hosting the GAYVN’s this month in San Francisco, but instead drag diva Lady Bunny will play hostess for the porn awards show. LB is the hardest working performer I know!

She recently  shot the sequel for Another Gay Movie – Gays Gone Wild! Ru Paul will also make an appearance.

The famous Times Square  Naked Cowboy is suing Mars, Inc. for using his trademark tighty-whities and guitar on a dancing M&M, and he says  that the company offered him $50,000 to shut up. But he sure as hell does not  plan to. Robert Burck aka Naked Cowboy — wants around $6 million from Mars, according to papers filed in Federal Court in New York. And he intends to wear his minimalist getup in open court — and says he wants his lawyer to do the same, just for solidarity!
