Adding to theÂ ongoing list of celebrity couplesÂ who have fallen prey to the curse of MTV, rocker Travis Barker & wife Playboy Playmate Shanna Moakler are ending their marriage after only two years.Â The stars of Meet the Barkers are third in a recent line of MTV star breakups.
The new split comes just four weeks after Dave Navarro & Carmen Electra came out with the news bulletin that they were “amicably separating”.Â Navarro & Electra chronicled their 2004 nuptials in the ‘Till Death Do Us Part series.Â And just eight months after Jessica Simpson & Nick Lachey announced their official separation.
Barker’s publicist stated, “I can confirm that Travis filed this morning.” The publicist also confirmed the filing when contacted by Reuters.
Moakler’s eyes were on his children saying, “My only concern right now is for the welfare and best interests of my children.”
I’m thinking this new pirate movie could work:Â Pirates of the Hollywood Hills:Â The Curse of MTV.

Playboy’s playboy Hugh Hefner has laughed off rumorsÂ that he suffered a mild strokeÂ over the weekend, insisting that he’s as healthy as ever & inferring that the man has taken more than a few sips from the fountain of youth.
The 80-year-old Hefner was reported to have been recovering from a mini-stroke, but his repÂ Rob Hilburger says Hugh is doing just fine.
Hilburger states, “That’s completely untrue.”
Hefner says, “We had a lingerie party Saturday night and I went up a little early because (girlfriend) Holly (Madison) had a cold.
“I am in very good health. I’ve never felt better.”
The man is still going to be kicking around & kissing 20-year-old women when he’s 100.Â

Just a quick Harry Potter update for all those fan out there, me included.Â Â It looks like Harry Potter and the Half-Blood PrinceÂ isÂ set for a Thanksgiving, 2008 release.Â Don’t worry, we can get through this long wait together.
Now all we need toÂ find out is the director & castÂ for the sixth installment of the lucrative franchise.Â And that info might be a while too, since Warner Bros. doesn’t even know.Â Meanwhile I guess we’ll just have to wait forÂ Harry PotterÂ and the Order of the Phoenix comingÂ out July 2007.Â

While most everyone (producers, agents & of course, Rob Schneider) have stepped up to condemn Gibson’s drunken slurs, Dean Devlin, Jodie Foster & now Patrick Swayze have gone to bat for the Melster.
Swayze says, “Mel is a wonderful human being. He is not anti-Semitic.
“People say stupid things when they happen to have a few (drinks), and especially if you don’t drink anymore, or have limited your drinking for a long time and all of a sudden you decide to have one too many with the boys–you are stupid.”
“When you are a pit bull, and you love what you do and you are going to continue to grow, that talent will find its way out.
“Talent deserves to be honored. Hands deserve to be slapped if you do something stupid as well, but don’t take it too far.”
Apparently since Dirty Dancing Swayze has become an introspective spoken word poet.

The French siren & the Miami Vice star hooked up just hoursÂ before his London premier of the cop drama.Â Â 24-year-old Jermoe was delighted at being singled out by theÂ Irish actor, but said his lovemaking was overrated and cartoonesqe.
She says, “He must have told me I was beautiful eight times. I like bad boys. But he was too nice. He kept telling me how beautiful I was and I thought, ‘just shut up.’
“He comes across as a tiger on screen, but behind closed doors he’s as wild as Mickey Mouse.
“Maybe he has lots of women because he’s not that good in bed. Maybe they don’t want to stay.”
Wow.Â Mickey Mouse.Â I bet that one hurt.Â But still the life of a movie star…Â Picking outÂ the loveliest lady in the room & saying, “You, me.Â Now.”Â What a strange & beautiful world.
Reservoir Dogs actor Michael Madsen has balled up on the floor & said Brad Pitt is no friend of his.Â Madsen has attacked Pitt for not standing up for him & helping him land a leading role in new movie The Assassination of Jesse James.
The new film by Coward Robert Ford stars Brad Pitt in the leadÂ & Madsen was apparently offered the chance to play Pitt’s movie brother in the new western, but Madsen refused to audition for the role.Â Well, he is Michael Madsen, everyone knows he’s a legend.Â Excuse me, who????Â Madsen’s more like a cult actor, not some on-the-front-of-Wheaties actor.
The role of Pitt’s on-screen brother ended up going to actor Sam Shepard, who auditioned for the role.
An upset Madsen said, “You would think Brad would speak up for me. He obviously didn’t do that–all because I said I didn’t want to read for this movie… I’m terrible at auditions.”
“They gave the role to Sam Shepard who’s twice my age and nowhere near the age of the real Frank James… It’s just typical of the way things go for me.”
And that’s why Michael Madsen is a whiney bitch.Â Any questions?

Former SNL star Rob Schneider has publicly (or as he would say, pubicly) announced that he will never work with Jew-haterÂ & drunkypantsÂ Mel Gibson.Â Which is most odd, since IÂ feel more people would want to work with anti-Semite Gibson than the Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo Schneider.Â I’m not even sure Mel would agree to that anyhoo.
Rob took out an ad Variety, I’m a little surprised he had enough money for that, slamming Gibson for his behavior in a little something he wrote calledÂ ”An Open Letter to the Hollywood Community.”Â Here’s Rob now, enjoy.

Jennifer called ‘girl down!’ and the girls came a-running.Â Cox Arquette hosted a get-together July 24Â in Malibu to cheer Aniston up.Â Apparently Anniston has been referring to herself as “the new Jen” ever since.
The pow-wow was also a good chance for Crow to thank the girl tribe for their help in getting her through breast cancer.
The all-girl power meeting was a chance for Crow to officially thank her pals for helping her through her breast cancer battle.
Crow revealed, “I had this incredible tribe of women just descend upon me and carry me through the whole experience on their backs.”
Umm, can we get a video of that somehow?

So sorry to have missed you yesterday.Â This time I was bashing in my servers….Â
Apparently the Austrian is concerned about Blair’sÂ possible lack of employmentÂ opportunities after his term in office is over.Â The Prime Minister is expected to stand down before the next British elections by 2010.
Speaking following a global warming discussion with Blair & Long Beach industry leaders, Schwarzenegger suggested Blair’s career moves, “Maybe head of the UN, maybe something that is a step up. Who knows what it is because it is a big job that he has right now.
“I think whatever job he wants he will get because he’s got such a good success rate at home and he’s done such a remarkable job in Europe and England and in the world as a leader.
“If he wants a job in Hollywood I could get him to play Terminator 4.”
Blair’s respone, “That’s definitely the best offer I’ve had.
“Actually, the sad thing is, it’s the only offer I’ve had.”
I dunno.Â I bet Naomi Campbell has a position available.

Apparently Tori & new hubby Dean McDermott adore watching hardcore porn. Do I hear a new celebrity sex video release? The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star stated that she & Dean regularly make use of website SugarDVD.com to rent adult movies.
Spelling’s admission has tickled the fancy of SugarDVD’s CEO Jax Smith who has asked Tori to be a celebrity endorser for the site. Smith suggested a ‘Tori’s Favorites’ page with all her fav goodies & genres. I can only imagine what she’d pick….
Unfortunately, we’ll never know. Spelling’s reps have passed on the invitation for Tori to become a porn spokesperson.
Smith seemed understanding & stated, “They weren’t pleased–they told me not to.”
He went on to say that he has no hard feelings & that he is happy to “give (Tori) free porn for life.”
No inheritance, but hey- you’ve got free porn for life. What more could you want?

The most recently famous anti-Semite out of Hollywood, Mel Gibson, has checked himself into a rehabilitation recovery program for alcohol abuse. What about joining a I-hate-Jews recovery program?
Gibson was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Malibu this past Friday. I feel it’s gotta be more than suspicion when the man can’t walk in a straight line.
Mel’s rep, Alan Neirob, confirmed the actor had entered rehab, stating that he was “participating in an ongoing program to deal with this. The guy is trying to stay alive.”
On Saturday, Gibson issued a statement apologizing for his actions & behavior following the drunken arrest. If you don’t know already, Gibson allowed himself to be a little bit vocal regarding his feelings of the Jewish community.
For this Tuesday morning, I thought we would indulge ourselves by reading what apparently spewed forth from The Passion’s director.
According to the incident report by Los Angeles County Deputy James Mee, Gibson repeatedly said, “My life is f**ked” before launching into an anti-Semitic outburst.
Gibson then stated “F**king Jews. The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world. Are you a Jew?”
The actor is also reported to have threatened, “You motherf**ker. I’m going to f**k you” to the deputy.
The report also alleges that Mel went on to say that he “owns Malibu”and the he would spend all his money “to get even with me”.
He is also believed to have directed the following comment to a female officer on the scene, “What do you think you’re looking at, sugar t**ts?”
Wow. You gotta hate yourself in the morning after all that. What the hell was the man thinking? Well, I suppose I know a little bit more about the Mel & a little less about myself?

Lohan received a letter from the CEO of the production company for her current project Georgia Rule which reprimanded Lindsay for her “irresponsible and unprofessional actions.”
Lindsay’s mom, Dina Lohan, stepped up to the plate &Â told Access Hollywood what’s really going on with the teen queen & the infamous letter.Â Here she is now.
“The wording was ridiculous.
“Maybe he has personal issues with whomever and it came out with my child. I don’t know him. I can’t judge him. I don’t think it was a smart thing to do to a young girl.”
When asked if there was any truth to the letter Mama Dina stated, “Lindsay was in 105-degree weather saying, ‘Mommy, I feel sick; like, I am going to faint.’
“She took herself to the hospital. She has asthma and in extreme cold or heat, you can’t breathe.”
When asked about Lindsay’s partying Dina stated, “Lindsay gets to work late, OK…she’s a human being.
“There was one day when she was late and they worked the schedule around her. Garry (Marshall, the film’s director), Jane (Fonda, her co-star), everybody loves her.”
She adds, “I’m a mother and will do what I need to do to protect my child. I don’t feel it should be aired out and everyone should know. It’s personal.”
It’s personal.Â But everyone knows that Lindsay parties like there’s no tomorrow & she has more bikinis than god.

TheÂ Signs star was arrested Friday morning whenÂ police officersÂ spotted the actor speeding at 80 mph along a 50 mph road.Â Gibson failed both a breath test as well s a field sobriety test.Â I would have loved to have seen Gibson walk, staggeringly across theÂ line.Â Â
In an apologeticÂ statement, Gibson says, “I acted like a person completely out of control when I was arrested and said things that I do not believe to be true and which are despicable.
“The arresting officer was just doing his job and I feel fortunate that I was apprehended before I caused injury to any other person.
“I disgraced myself and my family with my behavior and for that I am truly sorry.
“I have battled with the disease of alcoholism for all of my adult life and profoundly regret my horrific relapse.”
While Gibson has not elaborated on the “despicable” details, it has been reported that he made anti-Semitic remarks towards the arresting officers.Â So, he does take after his dad, the Holocaust-denier.
Gibson was later released on $5,000 bail after he was charged with drunk driving.
