Teaming up with Hilton Hater to bring you the latest celebrity news, Hollywood rumors and gossip since 6/6/06.

Tom Cruise was bashed (newsworthy, we know) last week in Australia, where he was named winner of the "Celebrity Ernie Award" for a supposedly sexist comment that award organizers claim he made. Only he didn't.

The comment in question, which was allegedly made when fiancée Katie Holmes was pregnant with their possibly-fake daughter, Suri Cruise (now between three and four months old if she is in fact alive):

Kevin Federline's rap career may never get off the ground, but at least Mr. Britney Spears is trying to expand his career horizons. K-Fed, who made his nationally televised rap debut performance last Sunday at the Teen Choice Awards, is now gearing up for his debut as a TV actor on America's top-rated drama, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

Apparently K-Fed is not the only one who gets to throw back a couple of drinks with the incredible Britney Spears -- travelers to Vegas can get drunk with Brit too!

Ok, maybe not with Britney Spears, the pop princess turned actress turned wife and mother turned trailer trash train wreck herself. But you can get absolutely annihilated on about 8-9 of the cocktails called The Britney Spears, offered by a popular Sin City hot spot.

We've seen the motivational words of Kate Bosworth, Lindsay Lohan et al., and found ourselves deeply touched by their wisdom. But these two ultra-thin vixens aren't the only celebs with inspiring stories from which our souls can derive strength.

While getting the pink slip from your movie company after pissing off the boss' wife doesn't make for a good week, you won't see any hangdog expressions on Tom Cruise. Oh no. Behold, Tom in all his glory, his relentless energy and indomitable shining through in spite of his obvious mental handicap. It's really quite moving.

The place to be after Sunday night's Emmy Award ceremony? Lindsay Lohan's bedroom. Oh wait. That's the place to be every night. Oh, yes, we went there. Sunday night, though, another place to be is the Entertainment Tonight's 10th Annual Emmys Party.

Stars including Sandra Oh, Calista Flockhart and Denis Leary will head from L.A.'s Shrine Auditorium to the restaurant Asia de Cuba and Skybar at the Mondrian on the Sunset Strip. The theme of the bash? Purple, in honor of the night's special performer, Prince.

Tom Cruise clearly displeased Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone enough to get his ass axed this week, but he evidently also committed one of the biggest cardinal sins for any employee -- pissing off the boss' wife!

According to, Paula Fortunato was incensed over one of Cruise's many rants, telling her honcho husband that the actor is a "putz," and that she intended on boycotting Cruise's projects.

Um, remember earlier today when we reported that the Tokyo subway officials banned nude Britney Spears pics on the city's trains? Our bad.

Well, it's not really our fault, since it was true at the time. But now, following the original ban by lame government censors, who called Spears' Harper's Bazaar magazine cover "too stimulating" for young people, the city is now permitting posters of the pretty, pregnant pop princess to proceed as planned, People proclaims.

Is Brody Jenner single? The Gossip may not know for sure, since his status appears to change every 12 hours, but we're doing some investigating. In the image below, taken Tuesday, Jenner and his newfound friend/companion, Nicole Richie, head to Hollywood club Privilege to celebrate Brody's 23rd birthday.

If you look closely, however, you'll see that the person holding Brody's hand is not Nicole, but perhaps the most important woman in his life â€" his mother, Linda.

Expecting parents and rising, underrated Hollywood stars Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard were photographed out and about in L.A. by People. Don't they look happy? We just had to post this candid pic because we are big fans of both Maggie and Peter -- and it's nice to talk about some stars with actual talent for a change. As we've talked about before, Maggie Gyllenhaal is the anti-Ashlee Simpson.

Wow. Another Wednesday night and another all-new episode of Laguna Beach in the books. It's hard to even know where to begin with this new cast, but if the first two episodes of Season Three are any indication, this crew is all about partying, forming cliques and creating hectic drama. Kind of like the previous cast, come to think of it.
