If Alex McCord is a Real Housewife of New York City, imagine what a show based on The Real Strippers of New York City would show.
With naked pics of this reality TV star scattered around the Internet, McCord is being forced to explain how such shots ended up online. Not that she seems to care one bit about the attention. Shocking.
"I did the photos after the birth of our second son," McCord said.
"I was shocked at how quickly my body came back. I just sort of thought, â€˜Wow!' At that time I had the opportunity to meet a lot of photographers. And there were a couple of people who asked me to work onâ€¦ projects."
Ah yes, projects. Follow the jump now to get an idea of what kind of projects Alex is talking about (hint: Tila Tequila would be proud.).
Is America ready for even more Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt?
The Hills' most-hated couple are pitching a reality show on their journey to the altar to MTV, according to a report in the New York Post.
The series would exclude Hills star and Heidi Montag nemesis Lauren Conrad to focus solely on the attention-loving pair as they prepare to marry.
Wedding planners, dress designers and more would loom large in the drama, which reportedly plans to climax with the
plastic-looking blonde pair sealing their fake relationship undying love for seven-figure deals all eternity.
The escalating relationship problems of Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag have been the primary focal point of the current spring season of The Hills.
Once engaged, they broke that off, and Spencer even moved out of the apartment they shared. In real life, of course, they appear to be inseparable.
As for the network's take on a Heidi and Spencer Hills spin-off series, MTV says it can't confirm anything, saying in a statement:
"We can't confirm anything."
For Eli Manning, if there is anything sweeter than beating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII, it's having Abby McGrew join his team - for life!
With the New York Giants quarterback and his fiancee set to get married Saturday afternoon, the bride and groom-to-be - with friends and family members - have officially been spotted at a Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, resort.
"They're an adorable couple," a staff member at One & Only Palmilla Resort, tells New York's Daily News. "We like having them here very much."
After putting around 27 holes on the Pamilla's Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course with brother Peyton Manning and four pals on Thursday morning, Eli Manning retreated to the hotel pool, where he lunched with Abby McGrew.
As guests for the small Eli Manning-Abby McGrew wedding continued to arrive in Mexico, a sunset picnic buffet was set up for them on the beach. Sounds nice.
As afternoon turned to evening, Eli Manning, 27, and McGrew, 24, reportedly did some line dancing to the hotel's reggae band, as did their guests.
The destination wedding is for family members and close friends only.
This afternoon, Abby McGrew and her fellow ladies will hit the resort's spa, where hair and makeup specialists are said to be flying in from Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, boys will be boys. Eli Manning and brothers Peyton and Cooper, along with friends, are gearing up for a guys' night out. Woo!
"I feel like a really lucky lady," Ashlee Simpson said on the Today show this week of getting engaged to Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz.
As for whether she's pregnant - which has been reported by numerous sources, yet she continues to deny repeatedly - she added "Time will tell."
Give us an effing break. We're guessing The Hollywood Gossip is not the only observer who wants to tell her "just shut up and admit it already!"
Is "singer" Ashlee Simpson pregnant? Obviously. But simply coming out and admitting it doesn't keep the tabloids talking and writing about you 24-7, does it?
In case anyone forgot, Ashlee Simpson is already:
- Very rich
- Able to become even more so by selling pictures of her baby to OK! Magazine the second that lil' guy or girl is cranked out
That would be enough for most people to admit they're knocked up, but no, not this plastic phony and shameless media whore.
With her new album out, might as well keep the people guessing, right? It's not like she has any talent to fall back on, after all.
Kristy Lee Cook was eliminated from American Idol this week. That's a fact every fan of the shows knows. But here are a few backstage and off-camera developments from Wednesday night's broadcast:
- Mariah Carey came out before the camera began rolling to test the microphone. She delighted those in attendance with a rendition of "Bye Bye," telling them: "No judging... Sorry, I don't have a sound-check â€" I'm always late."
- Former finalist Elliot Yamin also performed, just a few weeks after his mother passed away. He sang the song "Free," with "We miss you, mom" written on his hand.
Kristy Lee Cook found out she was eliminated, but then sucked up the emotion and serenaded Simon Cowell with her farewell performance.
- Famous - and random - people in the crowd included: Taylor Dane, Kristy Swanson, David Hernandez and Justin Guarini.
- When David Archuleta found out he was safe, Ryan Seacest asked him to pick the group that he thought was not the bottom three. Simon, Randy and Paula could all be seen shouting and desperately pointing for him to choose Cook, Castro and Smithson's side. He sat in the middle instead.
Fashion designer and star of The Hills Lauren Conrad arrives at the Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Hottest Style Makers Party in Hollywood on Thursday night.
LC spent a good deal of her time hanging out and having a good time talking with the press on the red carpet outside, but we realize you don't care. Like all of us, you just want to see beautiful Lauren Conrad photos. So here you go!
The Hills' Lauren Conrad dazzles in a sparkling emerald dress.
The lovely Lauren Conrad (who arrived with pal Lauren "Lo" Bosworth) said she opted not to wear a piece from her new clothing collection.
"I've been wearing it every single night so I was changing it up tonight," she said.
LC stayed close to Lauren Bosworth at the bash â€" at point she told her, "Don't lose me!" â€" but she also had some face time with another pal, Stephanie Pratt.
Where were Heidi Montag and Stephanie's brother, Spencer Pratt?
"I think they missed their flight," Steph said. "I was going to come with them!"
A court ordered payment of nearly $400,000 to the numerous lawyers involved in Britney Spears' affairs Thursday - with the pop star footing the bill.
All the attorneys have been working on the case for under three months.
Samuel Ingham, Britney Spears' court-appointed attorney, will continue to receive a fee of $10,000 a week, Commissioner Reva Goetz ruled.
Andrew Wallet, the co-conservator of Spears' finances, will receive an advance of $100,000. Wallet had not been paid since becoming involved.
Britney Spears is feeling blue after the many thousands in legal bills she's just been slapped with by an L.A. judge. Or maybe it's just her top.
The firm which won Jamie Spears control of Britney Spears' legal affairs will be advanced $175,000, and a lawyer for Britney's brother Bryan Spears will get $22,500, while Stacy Phillips, Britney's new divorce lawyer, will get $75,000.
Jamie Spears, the singer's father, and Andrew Wallet will remain in control of her life until at least a July 31 hearing. They recently won a restraining order against bad seed Sam Lutfi until that date, as well.
Kim Kardashian doesn't just have the fattest ass in Hollywood.
This reality and sex tape star has the phattest car, as well.
How do we even know Kim is driving her own vehicle in the photo below? Check out the cool, classy monogrammed seats behind her:
When sleazy and/or obese ursine specimens collide, look out, people!
Jason Davis, a.k.a. Gummi Bear, had zero problem ratting out his brother Brandon Davis, a.k.a. Greasy Bear, as a coke fiend to a drug dealer who called up looking for money ... except the guy wasn't really a drug dealer.
It was a celebrity prank call - and the whole thing was recorded.
Jason and Brandon Davis: Such brotherly love.
During the phone call, Jason Davis cops to trying blow "once or twice" (he was busted for heroin possession fairly recently) and said it's really his brother who "does that stuff." Brandon Davis will surely love that.
Gummi Bear even gave the faux dealer Greasy's phone number. Sellout!
