Hey, at least they only need one chair and are doing their part to conserve the world's food supply. We should be lauding these skinny celebrities as humanitarians.
Mary-Kate Olsen and Mischa Barton cozied up at the landmark Grand Opening of Atlantis, the Palm Resort, and the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
She may not be ordering many burgers, but Mary-Kate finds new boyfriend Nate Lowman delicious. Mischa hasn't swallowed anything since her Cisco Adler daze.
Kendra Wilkinson is engaged to Hank Baskett. That much we know.
But new reports are indicating that the nuptials are creating a series of problems for the Playboy model, her mediocre wide receiver of a fiance and others in the world of television. Here's are examples of the controversies caused by this couple:
- Following The Girls Next Door, Wilkinson was scheduled for her own reality show spin off. “It was supposed to be Kendra being even more...Kendra,” a source told E! Online. Now? A Newlyweds-type series is being considered.
- Along with the engagement news, it was announced that Wilkinson and Baskett would get hitched at the Playboy Mansion, with Hugh Hefner giving the bride away. But insiders say Baskett may not want someone that has seen his soon-to-be wife naked walking her down the aisle.
- Now, Kendra won't commit to any location for the wedding.
We'll keep readers apprised of the latest plans for these nuptials. For now, just one thing is certain:
Baskett and the Philadelphia Eagles need a major winning streak if they wanna reach the playoffs.
Just days after the story broke that he was getting sued by some Bahrain prince, rumors have begun flying that Michael Jackson has converted to Islam.
Not only that, but he has changed his name to Mikaeel Jackson.
Apparently, Jacko was persuaded by songwriter David Wharnsby and producer Phillip Bubal while recording new tracks at their studio in the Hollywood Hills.
“They began talking to him about their beliefs, and how they thought they had become better people after they converted. Michael soon began warming to the idea. An Imam was summoned from the mosque and Michael went through the shahada, which is the Muslim declaration of belief,” reports The Sun (UK).
If this is true, would it even be that strange? At least by Michael Jackson standards, it's barely newsworthy. Islam is practiced by more than a billion humans ... it's not like he joined some cult created a few decades ago by a sci-fi writer.
Or named his kid Bronx Mowgli Wentz. Prince Michael Jackson I and II (a.k.a. Blanket) seem like downright normal names compared to that douche-baggery.
Just when you think everything's going according to plan, you find the script has been completely thrown out after one of the players has "gone rogue."
So Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (remember her?) learned at an event in which she "pardoned" a local turkey, as politicians sometimes do this time of year.
Unbeknownst to the former Republican Vice Presidential candidate, while she was soaking up the publicity, talking family and energy policy, some birds were being prepped for Thanksgiving dinners by a farmer directly behind her.
Yeah. So who's the biggest turkey in this clip? It's a toss-up:
Some people drown their sorrows in tubs of ice cream. Others draw attention to themselves by frequenting clubs, looking sullen and earning sympathy from the celebrity gossip blogosphere.
Guess which category Paris Hilton falls into.
Th newly single socialite was spotted at Los Angeles hot spot Crown Bar last night, but multiple sources say she wasn't her typical, happy, wasted self.
"She definitely didn't seem like her usual party girl self tonight," said a witness. "[She was] way more reserved and distracted, like her mind was elsewhere. She was trying very hard to appear carefree, but it was clear she didn't want to be there and was waiting for the right moment to make her exit."
First, she needed every photographer in a six-mile radius to snap her picture, of course.
Added another onlooker: "Hilton looked distraught and completely lonesome. She wasn't her usual prim and proper self."
Paging Stavros Niarchos! Insecure, lonely reality TV needs a bedmate!
Lingerie model Karolina Kurkova has been voted the world's sexiest woman by E! entertainment television, beating a number of worthy foes for the honor.
The Czech native, recognized by Forbes magazine as one of the planet's highest paid models, was dubbed by E! as "she of the mysterious belly button" due to "media speculation about what appears to be an unusually smooth navel."
We can't speak to whether she's had navel work done, but Kurkova won the honor over Bar Rafaeli, who came in #2, and Angelina Jolie, who took the bronze.
Congratulations to Karolina Kurkova. Here's the complete list of the top 10 sexiest women on Earth - representing six continents! - as ranked by E!:
As part of her ongoing series of documentary interviews, Britney Spears took some time to explain how her upcoming album, Circus, differs from her most recent effort.
"Circus is a little bit lighter than Blackout," says Brit. "They're totally different vibes. This one has a lighter feel, more pop. Blackout is darker, edgier, more urban."
She says her new hit single, "Womanizer," is for the ladies.
It also features Britney Spears nude, so it's sort of for the guys as well. But that's neither here nor there. That was just a side note we decided to throw out there.
It's about "a guy who is just into a bunch of different women. He can't help it. He's just a womanizer, a complete butthole, and gets away with it." Yes. She said that.
Britney Spears says she hopes girls will be empowered by the "girl anthem" and "stick up for themselves." Here's the newest portion of Britney's series of interviews:

Holly Madison considers herself a fresh-faced beauty. Literally!
Madison says she's wearing less make-up these days, and she cites her split with Hugh Hefner as the reason.
"I think the breakup is partially the reason," the model told Life & Style, regarding the basis for her diminished use of foundation, fake eye lashes and lip gloss. "The truth is, I barely wear lip gloss anymore because I'm always making out with my boyfriend, so it comes off in two-and-a-half seconds... Apparently, I wasn't making out with Hef as much."
That boyfriend, of course, is shady magician Criss Angel.
"He doesn't like me in a lot of make-up and I appreciate that," said Holly.
We wonder if she also appreciates his past affinity for risky sex. Angel has been previously linked to Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan.
Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz have welcomed their first child, a boy.
The ridiculously named and scarred for life Bronx Mowgli Wentz - who weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces, and was 20.5 inches long - was born Thursday night.
"Proud new parents Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz welcomed new son, Bronx Mowgli Wentz, late this evening," their rep said. "Ashlee, Pete and baby Bronx are all healthy and happy, and thank everyone for their well wishes!"
BABY MAKES THREE: Ashlee Simpson may have zero talent, but she has one husband and one child now after the birth of Bronx Mowgli Wentz (that's not a typo)!
"Carrying a child is the most inspiring, emotional, amazing experience of my life," Simpson wrote on MySpace. "My weight and my pant size are the last thing I am concerned about. I'm only concerned with having a healthy pregnancy and baby."
Bronx Mowgli. Seriously, where do these losers think this stuff up? It's like they're insisting that he become a total douchebag when he grows up.
NOTE: We apologize for our initial misspelling of Bronx's middle name. We blame our sources. Know what other word is hard to spell? Misspelled! The irony.
