Rapper Fabulous Shot in Manhattan Then Arrested

fabolous-shot-arrested-10-17-2006.jpgFabulous rapper Fabolous was shot in the leg earlier today as he stood in a Manhattan parking garage. 

28-year-old rapper John Jackson, aka Fabolous, was shot one time in the right thigh by an as-of-yet unidentified male who walked up to Jackson & his his posse shortly after they left an event at Diddy’s downtown restaurant, Justin’s.  Wow, that’s a full evening, dinner at Justin’s & a shooting. 

After a hail of gunfire, Fabolous & his posse hopped into a white Dodge Magnum & sped away, running a red light on the way which attracted the attention of police responding to shots fired.

 The officers stopped the Magnum & found not only Fabolous & his posse, but two unlicensed, loaded guns.  Oops, forgot about those.  Fabolous & gang were then arrested and hauled off to the police station.

Police officers are still looking for that shooter and Fabolous was taken to a local NYC hospital where he remains in stable condition.

This is not the first brush with the law for Fabolous who was arrested in March 2003 on charges of criminal weapons possession.


George Clooney: The Ladies Just Can’t Get Enough


George Clooney is an object of affection?  Give me a break, Clooney is the object of desire from Lindsay Lohan’s drooling mother to costar Ellen Barkin, the man is a sexual myth & legend.

Friday night American Cinematheque paid tribute to the 45-year-old actor at the Beverly Hilton hotel and we have a little scoop on what the ladies are saying about the George.
“Yes, I have f— George Clooney. I always heard that George has amazing chemistry with all of his co-stars. Now I see why. … I’m probably the only one of many actresses to stand up here and admit yes, I have f— George Clooney. I’m very proud of it actually. … If you don’t have chemistry with George Clooney, you need to check your pulse,” Ocean’s 13 costar Ellen Barkin revealed. 

Interestingly a rep for Barkin, who is going through a divorce with Revlon billionaire 
Ronald Perelman, stated Ellen ”was just goofing around. It was a roast. She was being funny.”  Yep, I’d watch those billions too if I were you.

“Before I met my husband, you were the best man I ever met. … You’re cute and funny and you do wacky things with shaving cream and Neosporin. I don’t mean that in a sexy way,” Oceans 11 costar Julia Roberts said.
“Girls, he’s the best friend you can have. But he’d make a lousy boyfriend.  For a non-Mexican, he makes the best shrimp quesadillas I have had,” From Dusk Till Dawn costar Salma Hayek stated.
And what did the man, the myth say for himself?

“I do have regrets in my life. I regret that Michelle Pfeiffer was married when we did One Fine Day. And that Julia and Catherine Zeta-Jones were married, too. Also Matt Damon, but that’s a different story. I’d like a crack at him.”

A lot of hilarity for one night’s work.  I heart the George.


Bill Murray Parties with Scottish Students at St. Andrews

bill-murray-st-andrews-party-10-16-2006.jpgWell, it looks like you can man out of partying, but you can’t take the partying out of the man.  Bill Murray created a little sensation in the Scottish town on St. Andrews after joining Scandinavian students at an all-night party & even staying to help with the dishes.  Kinda sounds like Lost in Translation for real? 

This weekend 56-year-young Murray joined up with 22-year-old Norwegian student Lykke Stavnef who showed off his new pal at party where many Scandinavian students were already in full-swing.

“Nobody could believe it when I arrived at the party with Bill Murray,” Stavnef stated.

“He was just like the character in ‘Lost in Translation.’”  So Bill doesn’t have a personality of his own?

Stavnef went on to say that Mr. Murray was completely content with drinking his vodka out of a coffee cup, and even offered to help with the dishes.

News quickly spread around the small city that Ghostbusters’ Bill Murray was in town, and many a people came by to say hello.

“He was joking with me about reheating some leftover pasta and how drunk everyone was,” said 22-year-old partygoer Agnes Huitfeldt.

“The party was overflowing with stunning Scandinavian blondes. He seemed to be in his element, cracking lots of jokes. It was the talk of the town the next day,” stated 22-year-old college student Tom Wright.

Hilariously, just after doing the dishes, just like that, Bill Murray was gone.  And was he truly ever there?



Brandon Davis is Bouncing Checks

brandon-davis-bounced-check-10-16-2006.jpgOil heir Brandon Davis seems to be having some money management problems.  The grandson of billionaire Marvin Davis bounced a $10,000 check he gave to Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis. 

Now, that’s pretty interesting about the bounced check & all, but I’m rather interested in why he gave Joe Francis a check for $10,000- that’s a whole lotta porn if you ask me.

According to Page Six who obtained a copy of the bounced check, the check to Francis was refused for “insufficient funds.”  I think I’ve heard those words before myself.

Apparently the list goes on of Davis’ money problemos.  Brandon also owes money to record producer Scott Storch (did Brandon pay him to produce Paris Hilton’s godforsaken album?) as well as The Palm casino owner George Maloof.

Right before Davis told Page Six, “F–k you,” & hung up, he stated that his check bounced because he was was in the process of switching banks.  He also said that he paid Francis back in cash, which the Girls Gone Wild creator denies.  

Davis’ spokesman stated, “There is no truth to these rumors.”

Ummm, right.  I think there’s about as much truth in that as there was in Brandon’s explanation of why his check bounced.  What do you think?



Shanna Moakler did a bit of advertising Wednesay for Smirnoff, apparently she floated down NYC’s Hudson River on a block of ice to introduce Smirnoff Twisted V Arctic Berry.  That kind of sounds like a drink, “I would like to order one Artic Berry Shanna on ice, please.”  Wow, it’s so funny what company’s come up with to advertise their products.

I mean, seriously, who was sitting there thinking, “What truly says ‘Smirnoff Twisted V Arctic Berry’?  Why Shanna Moakler on a massive piece of ice floating down the Hudson.  That’s it!  It’s brilliant!”

Anyhoo, after the Smirnoff festivities, Shanna was interviewed by about that nasty little run-in with none other than the brand herself Paris Hilton.  The two blondes got in a catfight last week at the hot nightspot Hyde.

Shanna stated, “I did not punch her.  I just wish the whole mess would go away. I think there are bigger things in the world happening, like, Korea, like, bigger things. I think America’s probably sick of having Paris shoved down their throats.” {I guess Shanna means North Korea here?}

“And I don’t want to come across as that kind of person in life. I want to be in the magazines for things that I’m doing that are positive. I’m not scandalous. I don’t get into fights and I’m not at the police station for DUI’s. I’m a mom and this is not the spotlight I’m looking for, ever.”

“I’ll take it as far as they want it to go,” Moakler finished.

I dunno, Shanna.  I feel pretty confident that a lot of people would like to Paris to be shoved down their throats….


Angelina Jolie’s Car Driver Hits Motorcycle

angelina-jolie-motorcylce-10-11-2006.jpgA vehicle carrying Angelina Jolie peeled from a traffic signal to avoid paparazzi when the driver hit a man on a motorcycle.

Police have confirmed that 19-year-old Mittal Rawat was struck by the car carrying A Mighty Heart star Angelina Jolie.  The bruised teen seemed unhurt and was able to walk away from the accident.  Interestingly Jolie was reading Crimes of War: What the Public Should Know when the incident occurred. 

This is the second documented incident regarding the paparazzi this week, on Ocotber 7 Jolie & Brad Pitt’s infamous bodyguard Mickey Brett grabbed the neck of British photographer Sam Relph as the famous couple were leaving their Le Meridien Pune hotel.

According to Relph, “He said if I took pictures, he would kill me.”

“He had his fingers on my windpipe and he knew what he was doing. I couldn’t breathe.”

Wow, what a champ that Mickey is, a true soldier of peace.

Jolie & Pitt, if you haven’t heard, are filming a movie about the late reporter Daniel Pearl who was killed by terrorists in Pakistan in 2002.  They are currently filming in Pune, India and it looks like their making themselves right at home.



nicky-hilton-shanna-10-12-2006.jpgBy now we all know about the Paris Hilton vs Shanna Moakler catfight, and the Travis Barker make-out sessions that led up to that glorious event.  Well, now Paris’ little sister Nikki(doesn’t it always seem like Paris is the little sis?) is taking up for her girl & throwing the towel at Shanna, not surprisingly.

Nikki stated Tuesday, “You know, I think that she should spend more time with her children and doing more important things in life than getting in fights at nightclub.”

“That’s just very scary, being in a nightclub and having someone attack you. Paris is definitely concerned, but I’m taking measures regarding that.”

Hmmmmm, taking measures against that?  What does that mean?  Maybe Nikki Hilton is part of a glitzy, but deadly hotel Mafia ring.


Mariska Hargitay Loves Motherhood & Merlot



SVU actress Mariska Hargitay seems to be loving the new experience of motherhood, as well as merlot.  42-year-old Hargitay gave birth to her son August Miklos Friedrich Hermann June 28.  How’s that for a name?

But this beauty isn’t going to allow her new role to tame her social life, on a recent night out with friends, Mariska wouldn’t let go over her merlot glass.

“Mariska was double fisting merlot all night,” the source stated.  “She had a backup glass in front of her throughout the whole meal.”

I guess motherhood can pack a punch.

Hargitay was overheard speaking sweet talk about her son, saying, “He’s so sweet. He never even cries.”

“He’s such a little angel. He’ll start to cry, and then I’ll make a little sad face at him and he stops. It’s so cute.”

Wow, does that technique work on husbands?



Mel Gibson told Good Morning America‘s Diane Sawyer that he’s been sober for 65 days and that he’s trying to put his Jew-hating July 28 drunk driving arrest behind him.  Mel is even calling the anti-Semitic rant ”the stupid rambling of a drunkard.”

50-year-old Gibson revealed to Sawyer that he had started drinking again two months before being pulled over by the police in Malibu.  Here’s Mel now.

“Years go by, you’re fine.”

“All of a sudden in a heartbeat, in an instant, on an impulse, somebody shoves a glass of Mescal in front of your nose and says, ‘It’s from Oaxaca.’ And it’s burning its way through your esophagus and you go, ‘Oh man, what did I do that for? I can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube.’”

In August Mel pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of drunk & was sentenced to three years probation, was barred from driving for a three-month period & had to pay a fine of $1,300- which I’m betting he can afford.

Responding to those who shun him professionally for his drunk anti-Semitic comments, Mel stated, ”I feel sad because they’ve obviously been hurt and frightened and offended enough to feel that they have to do that. Um, and it’s their choice. There’s nothing I can do about that.”

“I’ll always continue to work. I’ve never much depended on anyone but myself, as far as that goes. And, hey, I’m not under the illusion that everything’s just going to be hunky-dory work wise forever. I’ve never been under that illusion. Things could go away tomorrow.”

What would Mel like to tell his critics? Gibson said, “Give me a chance to show you who I am?”

“Well, hopefully, in time they’ll know. And, you’re powerless over everything really … All you can do is take another step, keep breathing.”

And watch out where he’s breathing, that can be some stankin’ anti-Jewish drunk breath you’re getting.


Jimmy Buffett: The French are Idiots


Jimmy Buffett thinks the French are a bunch of idiots & don’t know the difference between prescription medication & the drug Ecstasy.

Jimmy, is of course, speaking about that experience he had at the Toulon-Hyères International Airport where custom officials claimed he had 100 tablets of Ecstasy in his luggage.  The “Margaritaville” singer had to pay a $380 fee, endure the embarrassment and move on with his life.

Recently Buffett posted on his blog, stating, ”I don’t know about you, but at a few months away from turning 60, I carry a few prescriptions, including a B vitamin supplement called Foltx . . . ‘Ecstasy,’ they said. I have never taken it and couldn’t tell you the difference between a hit of Ecstasy and Excedrin PM.”

“My vices these days consist of boat drinks, beer, wine and the occasional hot fudge sundae . . . I paid the fine, gathered my bags and my friends and as soon as they opened that door, I walked, rather rapidly towards my plane and flew out. The stern-faced authorities couldn’t take the truth as the simple answer . . . [and tried] to turn vitamins into ecstasy.”

Jimmy’s pals are backing him up as well, writer Jay McInerney stated, “Jimmy’s drug days are long past. The guy drinks a little good burgundy with dinner and that’s it.”

So maybe the French custom officials need some more lessons in telling the difference between old man Viagra & Ecstasy.  What do you think?


Paris Hilton’s Little Green Stash


Paris Hilton’s bag seems to be holding a little bit more than chapstick, don’t ya think?

Why it almost looks like there might be a little stash of marijuana in that cute pink bag of hers.  Paris just cannot stay out of trouble these days, first with that whole nasty DUI arrest, then the Travis Barker’s ex Shanna cat fight & now the heiress gets snapped showing off her weed.  Wow, Paris really likes to keep busy.

Paris’ publicist has been hard at work, as usual, letting us know what’s really going on.  “Things are not always as they appear. It would be unfair to draw any conclusions based solely on these photos,” Elliot Mintz stated.

Yeah, this is the same publicist who stated the 25-year-old Paris was not smoking cannabis outside a nightclub in June, she was merely smoking her self-rolled cigarette.

“I just want to get something clear with you. Paris Hilton rolled her own tobacco cigarette. It was tobacco that you saw.”

Right, I would like to see someone ask Paris to roll a cig for them on camera, I would imagine Paris wouldn’t have the first clue.

We’ll just watch & wait & see what else ole Elliot has got for us.  Surely we can’t pin this on loose tobacco leaves…


Paris Hilton’s Day as Kathy Griffin’s Assistant

kathy-griffin-paris-hilton-assistant-10-9-2006.jpgIt looks like everyone is trying to be gainfully employed, first Tori Spelling’s OK! pregnant magazine photo shoot, now news has come out that Paris Hilton was allegedly comedian Kathy Griffin’s assistant.  What is going on in the world when Paris has a real job?

According to Kathy herself, she hired hotel heiress Paris Hilton to be her assistant for a day while working on a photo shoot herself.

Kathy states, ”We were doing a shoot by Mario Testino for Italian Vogue, and Paris was there – and so I put her to work and hired her as my assistant.”

“I had her get me reservations at Mr. Chow – but I didn’t invite her; I took Lance Bass. Then I had to explain to her the meaning of the word ‘versatile’ – she had never heard it before. I ended up firing her. It was just too tedious. She wasn’t versatile enough.”

Either Kathy can be actually funny & this is a joke, or Paris Hilton really is an idiot.  No, wait, the latter is already true…


Anna Nicole Smith & Larry Birkhead Paternity Update

larry-birkhead-10-5-2006.bmpNow that we’ve seen the semi-marriage ceremony of Anna Nicole Smith & Howard K. Stern pictures, let’s move on to the gory Larry Birkhead paternity details.

In court yesterday, a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge refused to grant an immediate order for Anna Nicole & her baby daughter DanniLynn Hope to return to the U.S. from the Bahamas.

Larry Birkhead, one of two possible fathers of DanniLynn, is requesting a paternity test to determine who the father truly is.  Birkhead’s attorney Debra Opri is also requesting that Smith be ordered to submit to a drug test. 

Well, that’s not a lot to ask:  relent to have your child’s paternity determined & see if you’re on crack.  I’m sure Anna Nicole will come flying back to the States to participate in that farce.

Directly after the hearing, Opri addressed Anna at a press conference, “Anna, I am talking to you directly now and I want you to listen to me and I want you to hear what I have to tell you.

“If you are so certain that Larry Birkhead is not the father, then you have nothing, absolutely nothing to lose by submitting to this jurisdiction and allowing a paternity test.”

Smith’s semi-husband & longtime lawyer, Howard K. Stern says that he is the baby’s papa.

My, oh my. 


Ryan Phillippe’s Future Plans Include Smoking Weed

ryan-reese-10-4-2003.jpgFlags of our Fathers star Ryan Phillippe has his vices:  lovely ladies, booze & smoking up.  When wife Reese Witherspoon won a Golden Globe back in January for her performance in Walk the Line, Phillippe jumped up & down while yelling & pumped his fists into the air.  And now, by golly, I think we may know why.

As usual, Rolling Stone always gets the goods.  In a recent interview Ryan stated, ”At the Golden Globes I was plastered!” 

Shirley MacLaine and I drank like crazy, just putting away bottles of wine and making fun of everyone.”

When asked about his plans for the future, the actor revealed, ”The ultimate 20-year plan is to be living in the Caribbean, writing, living off the land, eating from the ocean and probably smoking herb.”

That’s cute, but somehow I can’t picture that from someone married to Reese.  What do you think?


George Michael is Sober Pictures






George Michael & his car look sober enough as the pop veteran leaves his home in Highgate, North London & heads for a concert in Lyon, France.  Where I am sure we will hear of more drug infractions.

Michael was arrested (yet again) Sunday after another traffic violation that led to a suspicion-of-drug-use arrest.  The man needs help.  Maybe he & Pete Doherty can coach each other.  Yeah, right.  What do you think, is there any hope left?

Bobby Brown Warrant for Child Support Payment

bobby-brown-mug-shot-10-3-2006.jpgIn Massachusetts Monday a family judge ordered 37-year-old Bobby Brown arrested after he failed to show up at a hearing regarding delinquent child support payments.

Brown’s lawyer stated that this is a ”very difficult time” for Brown, whose wife Whitney Houston filed for separation last month after 14 years of crazyful marriage. 

“Whether or not he’s going through a divorce doesn’t negate the fact that he still owes child support relative to his two children that he had prior to his marriage,” responded Family Court Judge Paula Carey.

According to Kim Ward, the mother of the two children, says Brown owes two months of child support totaling, $11,000.  Wow, those kids must have a lot of Xbox games for that kind of money.

Brown’s attorney did not say where Bobby is currently residing, although all Celebrific readers know this.  I think they ought to check the home of Superhead Karrine Steffans if they want to find the Bobster. 

Poor Bobby Brown, he had such a lucrative career in the 80s, a cocaine-ridden marriage to Whitney & now the poor lad is penniless without the Houston to get his back.  Well, hopefully Superhead can give him a leg up, and maybe a little more too.



George Michael Arrested…. Again: His Own Stupid Fault

george-michael-10-2-2006.jpgPop veteran George Michael was arrested yet again Sunday after a traffic incident in London.  The 43-year-old singer was arrested on a drug-related charge & given a warning by police. 

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman only stated, “A man was cautioned by police for possession of cannabis.  He was bailed to return on a date in November, in relation to being unfit to drive.”

Reps for Michael had no comment, surprise.

According to the BBC, the coppers were informer that a car was obstruction traffic.  After some time an ambulance was summoned & following Michael’s arrest the singer was taken to a west London hospital as a ”precautionary measure.”

Kenny Gross, George’s partner, stated after his Michael’s release, “He’s fine and I’ve got him a McDonald’s.”  Which is apparently what repeat offenders need, McDonalds.  Makes sense, Ronald always did look a little suspicious. 

This will make the third arrest for suspicion of drug possession for George.  In February he was found clumped over the wheel of his automobile in London’s Hyde Park.  In April, the pop menace struck again when he damage three of his neighbors’ cars with his Range Rover.  Oops.  Michael later called the incidents his ”own stupid fault.”

Poor George.  He really does need to get a hold of himself, oh, I guess he already did that….


Nick Carter Cheated on Paris Hilton with Ashlee Simpson


Nick Carter has come out (no, not that kind, as of yet anyway) and revealed that he did indeed cheat on ex-girlfriend Paris Hilton with Ashlee Simpson.  But nice Nick said he only cheated after hearing that Hilton had been sleeping with her House of Wax costar Chad Michael Murray.  Who, Paris?!  Why she would never.  Yeah, right.

The Backstreet Boy dated Paris for eight months before they split in 2004, hilariously the same month that Murray announced his engagement to the young One Tree Hill costar Sophia Bush.

Carter revealed his skeletons to PageSix, ”I’d fallen head-over-heels with this chick. Then, all of a sudden, three months go by and I got people telling me, ‘Nick, you know what Paris is doing to you,’ and I got a little upset.

“So then I just decided to fight back a little bit and started doing my own thing again. The result is I hooked up with Ashlee Simpson. When Paris came back from Australia, they talked to each other and she found out about it.

“So I brought it up to her and said, ‘You know what I did, and now it’s your turn. Why don’t you tell me what you did?’ And she goes, ‘I never did anything! I never cheated on you.’

“I had kind of started to really like Ashlee and I was thinking about the dating stage. Then, before you know it, f**king b**ch-face comes back.

“I got so burnt over that whole Paris s**t with all this swinging and switching. Whatever happened to morals and values?”

Yeah, whatever happened to that, Nick?  It’s not like you cheated on anyone…. 


Janet Jackson & Justin Timberlake Talk Reunion

janet_jackson_nipple_high.jpgInsiders are whispering that Janet Jackson is in talks with Justin Timberlake to appear together once again in “some sort of big, live show like the Grammys or the Oscars” as the a publicity stunt.

The two stars have not spoken since the infamous breast-fest at Super Bowl 2004.  During that provocative appearance the duo rocked out to Timberlake’s song ”Rock Your Body” when a so-called ”wardrobe malfunction” occurred exposing Jackson’s pierced right nipple on national TV.  The incident cost the broadcasting giant CBS $550,000 in fines and plenty of ridicule.  I just thought it was funny, I would have paid to see comedy such as that. 

A Jackson / Timberlake reunion “will help re-boost the sales of their albums” a source added.  Janet just came out with ”20 Y.O.” &  Timberlake’s “FutureSex/LoveSounds” could use a little boost.

Sounds fun, count me in!
