Goodbye Ryan Phillippe & Reese Witherspoon Montage




As reported in quite length earlier, Heather Mills made some startling allegations regarding estranged husband Paul McCartney.  Mills has alleged that McCartney was physically & emotionally abusive, used drugs, tried to strangle her and was basically a big, huge meanie-pants.

Paul has come out with a statement regarding these allegations, and to be honest it’s a little on the weak side. 

McCartney’s reps stated “Our client would very much like to respond in public and in detail to the allegations made recently against him by his wife and published in the press but he recognizes, on advice, that the only correct forum for his response to the allegations made against him is in the current divorce proceedings.”

Will Paul take this slander lying down?  Reps went on to state, “Our client will be defending these allegations vigorously and appropriately.”  So, no, apparently Paul is ready for a fight.

So, either Heather is an evil bitch, Paul is a huge asshole, or a little of both.  What do you think?


‘Dancing with the Stars’ Sara Evans Talks About Divorce

sara-evans-divorce-update-10-18-2006.jpgAs posted earlier, Dancing with the Stars ex-contestant & country singer Sara Evans recently announced that she was filing for divorce from her husband of 13 years, Craig Schelske.  After making the statement that she was leaving the dancing show, Evans turned her attention to her family.

Apparently just hours before Evans was to perform on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, Evans learned about some racy allegations regarding 43-year-old Schelske.  I suspect that Evans learned about those 100 photographs that Craig took of himself naked (for some off reason) and perhaps that Craig’s list anal sex add.

“It’s a blur,” Evans stated regarding the recent events.

“The good thing is that I’m so used to performing, as you know, that as an entertainer, we just have the ability to just try to flip the switch, turn it on, do the dance and make it through the day.”

Evans had considered divorce earlier this year and even begun filing paperwork, but she was trying to take it slow, thinking about her children.

Sara revealed, “It was always my intention to try to take things slowly.  My intention was to try everything that was in my power [to save the marriage].”

“It’s very personal and very traumatic and very hard for my children.  Things drastically went downhill at 100 miles an hour.”

We wish both parties luck & more love in the future.



heather-mills-paul-mccartney-divorce-news-10-18-2006.jpgWow, in a recent Us Weekly post, Heather Mills is crucifying estranged husband Paul McCartney and she isn’t looking back.

In court documents filed by ex-model Mills, Heather is claiming that McCartney was physically & emotionally violet towards her, took drugs as well as forbade her to breastfeed their baby during the marriage. 

Here’s what Us Weekly broke down for us regarding the abuse, check it out.

October 2002: McCartney loudly pointed out that Mills was in a bad mood, in front of other people. When they returned home McCartney and Mills began to argue about the McCartney’s behaviour. McCartney grabbed Mills by the neck and pushed her over a coffee table. He then went outside and, in his drunken state, fell down a hill, cutting his arm.
May 2003: The couple were in a hotel in Rome when McCartney behaved coldly towards Mills, who was pregnant and who was distressed by a derogatory newspaper article about her. An argument ensued in which McCartney became angry and pushed Mills into the bath. Mills suffered distress but was made to go to McCartney’s evening concert.
May 2003
: Following the concert, in a fit of pique because Mills refused to go to the aftershow party, McCartney directed a female bodyguard to abandon Mills, leaving her exposed to hordes of fans. The respondent was forced to take a 30 minute walk back to the hotel because no taxi was available.
August 2003: In Long Island, Mills asked McCartney if he had been smoking marijuana. He became angry, grabbed her neck and started choking her.
October 2003: McCartney often told Mills when she was pregnant that he did not want her to breast-feed their child, making the comment “they are my breasts” and “I don’t want a mouthful of breast milk”.
November 2003: McCartney required Mills to defer an essential operation on her leg because it would have interfered with holiday plans.
December 2003: Mills had a broken pelvic plate McCartney insisted that she cook for him while she was on crutches, could barely move and was in agony.
Mid-November 2004: McCartney failed to protect Mills from adverse press reports despite being in a position to do so. Mills was warned that a forthcoming article about her was about to come out in The Sunday Times magazine and included the line: “The best thing that ever happened to Heather Mills McCartney was losing her leg” which was distressing.
As McCartney had been asked to participate in the half-time entertainment for the Superbowl on Fox TV owned by Rupert Murdoch (who also owns The Sunday Times), Mills asked McCartney to tell Rupert Murdoch that he would not confirm his participation in the Superbowl unless he agreed not to run the story. McCartney refused to assist in this way.
September/October 2005: McCartney called Mills an “ungrateful bitch” in front of their driver when she explained why an office he had provided was not right for her. Having refused to allow Mills to use his spare office on the floor beneath their apartment, which would have allowed for a creche in one part of the office, McCartney had insisted she use an office that was far too small and was 20 minutes walk away. When Mills went to view it, she was chased by paparazzi and was so demoralised by the experience she never used the office.
April 2006: Shortly after Mills’ revision amputation surgery she was forced to crawl on her hands and knees up aeroplane steps because they were not wide enough to take her wheelchair. McCartney had assured Mills he had taken care of her disability needs in connection with the trip.
April 2006: An argument occurred during which McCartney poured a bottle of red wine over Mills’ head and then threw what remained in his wine glass at her.
McCartney then reached to grab Mills’ wine glass, and broke the bowl of the glass from the stem. He then lunged at the Mills with the sharp stem of the glass, which cut and pierced the Mills’ arm just below the elbow causing her to bleed profusely. He proceeded to manhandle Mills, flinging her into her wheelchair and wheeling it outside, screaming at her to apologize for “winding him up”.
April 2006: Mills asked McCartney not to leave her alone with their daughter Beatrice at the Cabin (because it is isolated in a forest). She had just had surgery on her leg, was in a wheelchair, and was anxious about her ability to cope by herself. Notwithstanding this, he walked off. Mills then telephoned McCartney, and asked him to return. McCartney mocked her pleas, mimicking the voice of a nagging spouse, and refused to return.
April 2006: It is alleged that Mills found McCartney staggering, undressed him and ran the bath and helped him into it. She then phoned the McCartney’s psychiatrist for advice and was told not to attempt to move him, to get a duvet and two pillows, to empty the bath of water, cover him, and leave him there.
Mills thereupon dragged herself upstairs, on her hands and knees (she was unable to wear her prosthetic leg as the wound from surgery had not yet healed) and brought back down the pillows. She found that McCartney had vomited on himself. She rinsed him off, and got him out the bath. At that time Mills had a broken plate in her pelvis and she was in agony.
April 2006: On April 27 Mills knew McCartney would be too hungover to help her with Beatrice and due to her own incapacity as a result of an operation, she had to call the babysitter to help get Beatrice to nursery.
The following day McCartney went to London but said he would be back in time to help the put Beatrice to bed. He did not arrive back at her bedtime even though he knew Mills could not cope on her own. McCartney arrived home drunk and demanded dinner and called the respondent a nag.
That evening Mills realized the marriage had irretrievably broken down and left, crawling on her hands and knees while dragging her wheelchair, crutches and basic personal possessions to the car.
No date given: Mills asked McCartney if she could buy an antique bedpan to keep under the bed at night so she wouldn’t have to crawl to the bathroom when her prosthetic leg was not fitted. McCartney objected, saying it would be like being in “an old woman’s home.”

Jeez, that was a load of badness, I’m glad to see you made it through without a scratch.  So, what do you think- is all this true, is Paul McCartney the biggest asshole of them all?


Sara Evans’ Husband Craig Schelske Responds to Accusations


As we reported Friday, Dancing with the Stars contestant & country singer Sara Evans  filed for divorce from her husband of 13 years, Craig Schelske.  After making the announcement that she would be dropping out of Dancing for personal reasons, the country singer went on to state that she was divorcing her husband & needed to concentrate on her children and take time off the show.

Evans went on to state that Schelske had a porn problem as well as a tendency to sleep around & take pictures of himself naked, about 100 nude pictures to be exact.

Now it’s Craig Schelske’s turn to do the talking, here he is now.

“I have made the decision to forgive Sara for the unfortunate campaign that she and her publicity advisors are currently waging,” Schelske said in a statement.

“Sara has unfortunately become a dramatically different person over the last year and it is something we have struggled to deal with. Sadly, it appears we have failed.”

Wow, strong words.  It’s going to be interesting to see how this one plays out.



Heiress Nicky Hilton Dumps ‘Entourage’ Star Kevin Connolly

nicky-hilton-kevin-connolly-split-dumped-10-17-2006.jpgIt’s officially over for Nicky Hilton & Kevin Connolly.  We will always fondly remember these days of yore as the Nicky & Kevin era, but no more. 

After a two-year steady relationship, Nicky Hilton has apparently dumped actor Kevin Connolly. 

A Hilton rep was at the ready with a statement, ”They’re no longer a couple.”

23-year-old Hilton & 32-year-old Entourage star Connolly began dating in 2004, just a few weeks after Hilton annulled three-month long marriage to New York businessman Todd Meister.

According to a friend of Hilton’s, Nicky ”dumped” Kevin Monday because she suspected that the boy had been unfaithful. A rep for Connolly was unable to be reached for comment.

A 32-year-old man cheating on a 23-year-old Hilton?  What the hell was the boy thinking?



‘Dancing with the Stars’ Singer Sara Evans Divorce Update


As reported on Friday, Dancing with the Stars contestant & country singer Sara Evans has filed for divorce from her husband of 13 years, Craig Schelske.  After making the announcement that she would be dropping out of Dancing for personal reasons, the country singer went on to state that she was divorcing her husband & needed to concentrate on her children and take time off the show.

35-year-old Evans filed for divorce in Franklin, TN where the couple & their three children reside.  Evans & Schelske have been married since 1993.  43-year-old Schelske ran for Congress as a Republican from Oregon’s 5th District in 2002.
A source reveals Evans’ reason behind the divorce, “Her husband has had a long time porn problem. He’s addicted to web porn and it’s been a strong source of contention in their marriage.  She very recently found out that he had struck up a relationship with another woman he met on the Internet and began having an affair.”
“Sara is devastated, this has left her breathless, and all she can think about is getting back to her children.”

In the divorce papers, Evans alleges that husband Craig Schelske committed adultery, was verbally & emotionally abusive and drank excessively.  Sara goes on to allege that her husband ”frequently watches pornography” & has “at least 100 photographs” of himself posed in a sexual way on top of ”several photographs showing [Schelske] having sex with other women.” Evans apparently also shared Schelske’s postings on CraigsList where he requested “three party sex and anal sex.”

Wow.  100 pictures of himself!?  The man has a lot of time on his hands, and maybe something else too.
Evans is seeking child custody, possession of their Tennessee home, as well as child support.

She better get the money while she can, I’m thinking Schelske’s political career may just about be over.



Dancing with the Stars contestant Sara Evans, as posted earlier, will be leaving the show for personal reasons.  The country singer’s representative has come forward to comment on the unexpected departure.

Evans announced Thursday that she was leaving the show, as she was filing for divorce from husband Craig Schelske.  The couple live in Williamson County, Tennessee and the singer needs to draw her strength & energy to concentrate on the divorce.

Evans’ rep stated, “Recent events that shed light on the status of her marriage prompted Ms. Evans to make the filing.”

“Ms. Evans hopes that her fans and TV viewers who’ve supported her in recent weeks and throughout her music career will respect and understand her need for privacy in the face of these recent events,” her rep went on to say.

35-year-old Evans & Schelsk have been married since 1993 & have three children together.

Poor Sara, hopefully she can get back on her dancing feet soon.




Jennifer Ansiton visited The Oprah Winfrey Show Wednesday and stated that she has not broken up with beau Vince Vaughn.

At the taping Aniston is reported to have said that she & Vaughn are still hot & heavy, according to audience member Rochelle Alfaro.

Another attendee, Margaret Stent, said that Aniston denied getting breast implants, explaining that when she gains weight it just goes to her chest.  What a nice problem to have.

On Tuesday before the taping, Oprah & Jen popped into the upscale restaurant Japonais where both parties were upbeat, friendly & casual.  Fellow diners could not stop talking to them, apparently, and at one point a large group of Chicago Bears players even joined them.  Yeah, that happens to me all the time.  Except I’m at the Sizzler & it’s a large group of little league players…



Tony Parker & Eva Longoria Working it Out

tony-parker-eva-longoria-work-it-out-10-11-2006.jpgIs the two-year-long Eva Longoria & Tony Parker relationship salvageable?  Eva flew to France last week to be with her beau on-the-rocks Tony and try to work things out. 

Despite that the relationship was “going through a very difficult time”, Tony enjoyed some blonde company one evening in front of many a celebs & Eva did a little two-timing herself with 33-year-old Mario Lopez, a bit closer to her own age.

24-year-old Parker & 31-year-old Longoria gave been dating for over two years and even announced earlier this year that they planned on getting engaged in the near future.

When news recently broke that Eva Longoria, 31, and her basketball player boyfriend, Tony Parker, 24, were “going through a very difficult time” – and that she was two-timing him with Mario Lopez, 33 – the nearly two-year-old romance seemed doomed.

September 6 Eva flew to France to be with her man, according to a source close to the couple, “He begged her to come.  He said he’ll forgive her, but they need to talk it out.”
“She wants to take the heat off what happened with Mario.”

I just don’t get celebrities sometimes, especially this whole Eva-Tony thing.  Here you have a young, sexy, famous basketballer with an old doesn’t-look-good-without-makeup desperate woman.  What gives?  Tony needs a younger, vibrant woman who doesn’t wake up the neighbors with her damn bongos in the morning.


Eva Longoria Flies to France to be with Tony Parker

tony-eva-10-5-2006.jpgColor me confused.  Apparently Eva Longoria is flying to France (quite a long trip) to be with her possible ex-beau Tony Parker once again.

Amidst the flirting & dancing with busty blondes, allowing your publicists to make comments that your relationship is in ”a difficult time” and going out with other men, I am twirling about in confusion.

Maybe once you have Belgian, you never go back?

To refresh, Eva’s publicist stated that Longoria & Parker’s relationship was going through ”a difficult time.”

Parker stated earlier this week, ”Everything’s fine. A couple stuff happened, but that’s nothing. Everything is fine.”

A couple stuff happened, meaning a couple of blondes?

Well, we’ll keep an eye on these two & report back with any more juicy details.


Nicole Richie & Brody Jenner MySpace Comments



Nicole Richie made comments regarding her recent break-up with Brody Jenner on her MySpace page Wednesday.  Here she is now…
“Relationship? I know there are rumors regarding my “breakup” with Brody Jenner. The truth is, we were never really together. We hung out, and he’s a nice guy, but my heart was never in it. Anything further is just a cry for publicity.”

Hmmm, interesting.  However, I didn’t get that from the girl’s rep who stated, “Nicole and Brody are no longer dating but remain close friends.”

Maybe I just don’t get Hollywood relationships.  What do you think?

Kim Basinger in Contempt with Alec Baldwin Custody Case



Alec Baldwin had estranged wife Kim Basinger charged with contempt of court Wednesday.  Baldwin stated that she was defying court orders in the dreary custody battle over their 10-year-old daughter Ireland.

Baldwin claims that Basinger violated his visitation rights by not allowing him to speak with Ireland and has failed to let Alec know when she it out of town so he could keep his daughter at his house.
Basinger pleaded not guilty to the contempt of court charge.  This case has been going on forever, I do wish they could work out their differences already.  Baldwin & Basinger divorced in 2002 after nine years of marriage.


Nicole Richie & Brody Jenner Break-Up


After two months of dating & god knows what else, Nicole Richie & Brody Jenner have gone their separate ways, spilt, broken up.

Richie’s rep confirms the news, stating, ”Nicole and Brody are no longer dating but remain close friends.”

A source indicates that 25-year-old Richie initiated the break-up Wednesday at her Malibu home.
The source states, “Nicole just wants to be single right now.” 

“She felt it was a mistake to jump into a relationship so soon after her breakup with AM.”
Richie & Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein parted in May after a nine-month engagement.

She does seem to go through her men like hot cakes.



Jennifer Aniston & Vince Vaughn Break-Up

jennifer-ansiton-vince-vaughn-split-10-4-2006.jpgThe Vince Vaughn & Jennifer Aniston era is over, the break-up now official.  Gosh, everything is official today, Tori Spelling & Dean McDermott’s pregnancy & now this. 

After weeks & weeks of distance, the Aniston / Vaughn relationship ax fell the week of September 9.  A source close to Vince said the split happened just before he left for London to work on a holiday movie with Joe Clause.

“It’s not common knowledge, but we’re not together anymore,” Vince told his pal on September 13.  The source went on to say that Jennifer & Vince broke-up over the phone in a long conversation.

“We’ve split up,” Vince is reported to have said.
Team Aniston confirms, saying, “They’re 100 percent done.”

Soon after the telephone break-up, Vaughn cancelled plans for Aniston to visit him in London for a September 23 party.

What went wrong, and dear me, what happened to that $500,000, 9.5-carat canary yellow diamond Vince picked out for Jen?

Either way, it’s just too bad.  I thought they were a great match.


Tong Parker & Eva Longoria Break-Up Update


I was left scratching my head when Eva Longoria’s rep kinda randomly announced Friday that she &  beau of two years Tony Parker were “going through a difficult time.”  But we can now leave our head-scratching & say ohhhh.

Famous basketballer Tony Parker was spotted dirty dancing with an ex-girlfriend at the NYC club Marquee.  Parker was getting it on with the blonde bombshell in front of a lot of celebs.  Leonardo DiCaprio, Mick Jagger & Bono all saw the sexual action taking place.

A friend of Longoria’s stated, “Eva was devastated when she found out.”

“The blonde was an ex-girlfriend of Tony’s, and they apparently swapped numbers, but he swears nothing else happened. Eva and Tony are talking right now, trying to work things out.” 

Through her rep, Eva made the statement, “My loyalty remains with Tony.”

What she forgot to say after that was, “But my furious revenge remains with the blonde.”



Tony Danza & Wife Tracy Separate After 20 Years of Marriage



In a ‘Remember him?’ post, Tony Danza & his wife of 20 years, Tracy, are separating.  The 55-year-old Danza & 47-year-old Tracy were married in June 1986, they have two daughters together:  19-year-old college student Katherine & Emily, 12.

Danza gained fame as Tony from the TV sitcom Who’s the Boss & recently hosted The Tony Danza Show which aired for two seasons before being canceled in May.



lindsay-harry-9-28-2006.jpgHard Rock Cafe heir & Taco Pink owner Harry Morton just wants to take things slow with Lindsay Lohan.  After reports of their alleged engagement, the poor boy is feeling the media pressure hard. 

Harry speaks out, ”We’re just sort of taking a little breather right now and slowing things down.”

He adds, “A lot of people started saying we’re engaged and it put a lot of pressure on things. We need a little space… I’m a very private person. I’m sure she (Lohan) has dealt with it (publicity) for years but it puts a lot of pressure on me.”

Too true, too true.  But just go ahead & admit it, Harry.  You were in over your head & Lindsay scares you a bit, she does us too.


Kate Hudson Files for Divorce from Chris Robinson

kate-owen-9-27-2006.jpgAfter six weeks of separation from Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson, Kate Hudson is ready to file for divorce. 

A friend has told Us Weekly, “She is filing for divorce imminently.”

Imminently.  Wow, make it sound so urgent & earth-shattering.  I guess this whole imminent thing is for the Golden Stallion Owen Wilson.
Another friend adds, “As soon as she files, it relieves a lot of the pressure of going out with Owen.”

Hudson has been spotted with Owen having dinner, at soccer games, and a trip to Hawaii. 
“She’s much more true to herself when she’s with Owen,” says a source.

“Kate has never been happier.”

You know, once you’ve ridden the stallion, you never go back.
