Kim Kardashian took some time away from simply showing off her enormous boobs to discuss one of our favorite topics: her sex tape with Ray J.
"I'm not poor, I'm not desperate, I would never try to sell a sex tape," Kim recently said, defending her non-participation in releasing this infamous video. "It would humiliate me and my family. I don't need the money. It's something I feel very betrayed by, but I'm not pointing any fingers."
She then coughed twice, said the words "Ray J" and coughed twice again.
Kardashian went on to discuss her business empire. Years ago, she worked at her father's music marketing firm, Movie Tunes. When Robert Kardashian died in 2003, the company was left to Kim and her siblings.
"The company's been sold but I now own two fashion stores with my sisters, Khloe and Kourtney, and we're about to take our business online. I also model and I'm taking acting and singing classes. I work very hard," she said.
Just like George W. Bush.
In closing, Kardashian talked about her former best friend, Paris Hilton. How do you feel about her, Kim?
"She's a great person but I'm also my own person and an individual. Everyone makes different choices in their life and I don't enjoy being compared with other people, no matter who it is. That's why I did the reality show. I'm glad for people to see me and my family and what I really do."
The Hollywood Gossip is pleased to relay some big reality TV news - a dream of ours that we hoped would come true for some time now.
No, Whitney Port has not agreed to go out with us.
Something almost that good, though. After getting dissed on the last season of The Bachelor, DeAnna Pappas is ready for another go at TV love.
It's true! DeAnna Pappas, 26, a real estate agent from Neunan, Ga., will headline the next season of ABC's The Bachelorette, airing this summer.
Despite being awesome, she endured a painful, last-minute rejection by that jackass Brad Womack on The Bachelor season finale last November.
Even though he had even flown her father in and implied he was going to pick her, he rejected Pappas, as well as her competition, Jenni Croft.
Worst. Bachelor. Ever. Good riddance to you, Brad Womack.
Best. Bachelorette. Ever. Welcome back, DeAnna Pappas!
Sorry, Simon Cowell. But you didn't make this year's Victoria's Secret What is Sexy? list.
Even more frustrating for this American Idol judge? His on-screen rival, Ryan Seacrest, did earn a spot in the latest rankings. The lingerie company announced this week that Seacrest has a sexy smile.
Ryan Seacrest is sexy. We can safely say a contestant on this year's American Idol, Kristy Lee Cook, can also be classified as such.
"What's sexy about (Seacrest) is he doesn't act like he is," Victoria's Secret spokeswoman Monica Mitro said. "We felt that his smile was quite sexy â€" in a very subtle and innocent and humble way."
A Saturday night party in Scottsdale, Arizona is planned to recognize the honorees. They also include annoying, unfunny comedian Dane Cook, Rihanna, Tony Romo, Fergie and Josh Duhamel.
If you thought this couldn't get weirder, you don't read enough Britney Spears news. But even we'll admit that this developing story is beyond bizarre.
After being taken from her home, sources inside UCLA Medical Center say Britney Spears checked into the facility this morning using an alias.
The sources say Britney said she was on Adderall, a stimulant used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder, and was taking up to 10 laxatives a day.
While Spears was described as "calm" this time (unlike January 3), for a time she was hurling profanities at her parents and staff.
When she was admitted, Britney accused her mom, Lynne Spears of "sleeping with my boyfriend." She wasn't specific on who she was referring to.
Adnan Ghalib? Sam Lutfi? Robbie Carrico? One can only guess.
TMZ also reports Britney's parents have made progress in the tug of war with Sam Lutfi over who's calling the shots when it comes to Brit's treatment.
Britney Spears - shown here arguing with Sam Lutfi this week - has been spiraling downward for months. Her family has worked hard to get her into treatment.
Also, Us Weekly reports that Britney Spears' inner circle chose to admit her to UCLA Medical Center because of its experience in treating bipolar disorder.
"Her lawyers and doctors were working with UCLA," a source cited by the celebrity news site says. "They were ready and had everything in place."
The facility is better prepared to treat the troubled singer than L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she was hospitalized January 3-4.
"When she went to Cedars-Sinai they weren't ready for her," a source says.
"They have a much stricter unit at UCLA Medical Center and treat bipolar cases regularly. This is a serious unit she's on."
Britney Spears, who sources report has not slept in days, is under a "mental health evaluation hold" - commonly known as a "5150" - meaning she can be held for up to 72 hours if professionals deem her a danger to herself or others.
After those 72 hours of treatment, a patient's family can seek a 14-day extended evaluation or the patient himself/herself can decide to seek further treatment, according to the California Department of Mental Health.
Heading for The Hills? Don't forget your party hat â€" that was the message for guests at Lauren Conrad's 22nd birthday bash this week.
NOTE: Unlike Justin Timberlake, who actually turned 27 today (woo!), Lauren Conrad's birthday isn't until tomorrow (February 1).
But hey, why not get a head start, right?
Right. LC celebrated with her (predominantly female) posse at Hollywood hot spot Katsuya. But it wasn't all play for the reality TV star.
She stars on The Hills, after all, so crew members arrived almost an hour before Lauren Conrad's 9:45 p.m. appearance at the venue to smooth out technical issues and set up their shots â€" standard operating procedure.
When the guests arrived â€" including Lauren's old friend and new roommate Lauren Bosworth (a.k.a. "Lo," above) and Whitney Port â€" they were wearing party hats, and kept them while enjoying edamame, spicy tuna and birthday cake.
"The group toasted Conrad's birthday during their meal and couldn't have looked happier together," a witness reports.
As for the birthday girl? Lauren Conrad sipped a watermelon-cucumber mojito and "was just chatting with all of her friends and [smiling]."
After cake was served, the party dispersed and The Hills gals worked some set-ups with the crew for the show's new season. We can't wait!
It's like Old Navy tried to round up stars from all of The Hollywood Gossip's favorite TV shows and get them into the same party. Well, minus The Hills.
Hey, bobody's perfect. The casts of Heroes, Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill were all well represented Wednesday during a party for Old Navy's new line at Eyebeam Atelier in New York City. Check out these cute photos ...Â
Chace Crawford and a bunch of cuties from various hit shows. Nice.Â
On the left, Carrie Underwood boy-toy Chace Crawford (of Gossip Girl) and Heroes hottie Hayden Panettiere cuddle up. Platonically, of course.
On the right, Heroes' Kristen Bell leans on One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush (who, like Underwood, dated Tony Romo), while Gossip Girl's Blake Lively and Ugly Betty's Becki Newton talk it up and share some fashion advice.
There's no debating how good looking Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey are together.
The two are seen here outside the premiere for McConaughey's new movie, Fool's Gold. They're also expecting a baby in the next few months, one that may rival anything Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry churn out in terms of sheer beauty.
But the life of these stars is far from perfect: they lack a viable nickname. McConAlves? AlConaughey? Mamila?
They all lack the grace and sensibility of Brangelina, Zanessa or even Kurban. Therefore, celebrity gossip followers, the couple needs your help:
Send us your best nickname for Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey. We'll pass it on to the pair and see if it sticks.
Before being rushed to the hospital late Wednesday night, Britney Spears had a last meal (of sorts) at Jerry's Deli in Studio City, Calif.
With her was celebrity photographer and boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib. He looks deep in thought. What could Adnan be pondering? Some possibilities ...
- The state of humanity, our place in the universe
- Whether he left the burner on at home this morning
- How the U.S. will lessen its dependence on foreign oil
In any case, here are Britney and Adnan Ghalib, lost in thought ...
Adnan Ghalib and Britney Spears ponder life outside Jerry's Deli.
Early this morning, Britney Spears was admitted to UCLA Medical Center and placed on psychiatric hold. She will remain there for at least three days.
More updates to come soon on the saga that is the life of Britney, and the battle over control of the singer's important medical decisions...
Here's the good news, High School Musical fans: the cast of your favorite TV movie really does get along well.
"High School Musical' is unlike anything. No one can fully understand. It's just all of us in a group having fun," Zac Efron recently told MTV. "We really became best friends during this project, the whole cast. It's like not even work. We just have the time of our lives out there."
Now, though, prepare yourselves for the awful news: High School Musical 3 will be the final performance for these stars together.
"This is going to be the farewell to the East High Wildcats for a while. Senior year, graduation, this movie is the climax, it's the third act, this is the legacy that we leave on East High," Efron said. "I think it's going to be a good way to go out with a bang."
Fortunately, we'll still be able to ogle Zac in upcoming movies such as Me and Orson Welles and Seventeen.
