Courtenay Semel is known for being rich. She's the daughter of former Yahoo! CEO Terry Semel and appeared on the E! network's reality...

This is the most beautiful piece of art work we have ever seen in our lives...

Is Courtenay Semel describing her and ex-girlfriend Casey Johnson's reactions to the Mona Lisa? The Sistine Chapel? Da Vinci's The Last Supper? Not exactly.

In a new interview with E! News, Semel is instead referring to the sex tape made between these two socialites. They created it, she says, in order to profit from the amateur porn and break free from their rich parents.

"We had our own sex tape," Courtenay said. "It was either listen to our families and do what they say to get our lives back, or do it ourselves and sell this tape, work on our show. That was kind of our plan."

Before this plan could be executed, Semel and Johnson broke up in late 2008 and then - like their loins in the aforementioned video - the former set the latter's hair on fire.

Courtenay said the idea was to sell the tape and then make even more money off a reality series. Now, however, the video is (somehow) in the Johnson family's possession.

"Our show could've gone after that," she said. "Casey and Courtenay were going to make Casey and Courtenay happen."

Unlike Tila Tequila, who seems more interested in profiting from Johnson's death than mourning her ex, Semel actually has seemed broken up over Casey's passing.

But now we're left to wonder which is worse: Tweeting obessively about your former flame, or waiting until she's dead to tell the world about a sex tape you made with her? Debate that question and watch Semel's E! interview below.

Note to Tila Tequila:

This is how you mourn a loved one... sort of.

While that troubled reality star continues to Tweet, pimp out her record level and exploit the death of Casey Johnson in every conceivable way, Courtenay Semel has released an emotional video tribute to her ex-girlfriend.

Granted, the video aired on E! News and there's a good chance Semel was paid to make it. She also butchers the English language by saying Johnson was "literally" her other half, and makes a vow to never date anyone again that is unlikely to be kept.

But at least this is the only time Courtenay has spoken out about Casey. Do the words seem strong for someone whose hair Semel once set on fire? Yes. But, hey, who are we to judge?!?

Watch the tribute below.

While Casey Johnson's death has caused heartbreak for her friends and loved ones, it's also caused an ex-lover's tiff between two of the socialite's former girlfriends.

Since Johnson passed away last week, Tila Tequila has sent out over 75 Twitter messages. They've grown uglier over time, as Casey's fiancee has found herself under fire from many of Johnson's friends and family members.

Yesterday, for example, Nicky Hilton and Bijou Phillips came over to take Casey's dogs away from Tila. She called the police on them and has since Tweeted allegations that the two friends have put the canines to sleep.

"I guarantee that those poor little doggie has been put to sleep as I type this.... If any1 is an animal lover like me, putting a dog to sleep before it's time is just wrong & that's what they did."

Hilton and Phillips both deny they have any intention of taking this action against the animals.

Courtenay Semel and Tila Tequila were once happy and in love. But that was a long time ago.

Meanwhile, Tila has also typed out against those that claim she took advantage of Johnson, essentially making up their engagement for the sake of publicity.

"Casey Picked ME Over Her Family & Thats Why They R All Badmouthing Me in Press Cuz She Loved Me More," Tequila wrote. "I Can't Bring Her Back Now But At Least I know the Love Between us WAS REAL & They CAN NEVER TAKE THAT AWAY!"

Courtenay Semel isn't trying to take anything away.

But the ex-lover of both Johnson and Tequila is sick of the manner in which Tila is exploiting this tragedy. She told People magazine:

"The thing I find the most sickening is that the media is giving [her] the one thing she craves: attention. Tila, you knew her for a week."

Just a couple weeks before Johnson died, Tila went off on Courtenay, referring to her as a vile and evil person. Upon the death of their mutual acquiantance, it doesn't seem like this feud will be resting in peace any time soon.

When Casey Johnson died last week, her and ex-girlfriend Courtenay Semel weren't on the best of terms.

The latter socialite had recently claimed that the 17-carat ring Johnson gave Tila Tequila for their engagement was 1. fake; and 2. the same ring Casey had given Courtenay during their relationship.

Moreover, Semel was the individual that turned Johnson in last November when she was arrested and charged with stealing jewelry, shoes, legal documents and clothing from a British model.

Still, despite these differences - and despite the scathing words Tequila had for Semel just a couple weeks ago - sources say Courtenay is distraught over Johnson's passing.

"Despite the current state of their relationship, Courtenay is devastated," an insider told E! News. "I know their relationship was true love. They were super close and understood each other's socialite background."

Courtenay and Casey

Last night, Semel (pictured above with Casey when the pair were dating) Tweeted: "LOVE U CJ FOREVER AND EVER…C U in my dreams X CJS."

Meanwhile, the same source quoted above adds of the former flames:

"They were so in love that they were working on a reality show about their relationship called Love Is in the Heiress. The show didn't end up working out because they broke up."

We're not entirely sure that starring in a reality show is a sign of being in love with each other, or with publicity. But our thoughts are still with those affected by Johnson's tragic death.

In the wake of Casey Johnson's death, we hope Tila Tequila finds peace.

But that may be hard to come by as long as the former reality star continues to feel such hatred toward certain people in the world, namely Casey's ex-girlfriend, Courtenay Semel.

Shortly before Johnson passed away, Tequila spoke to In Touch Weekly about the troubles her fiancee endured. She pointed a finger at acquaintances that teased and tormented Casey.

“They are all just mean girls who pick on her,” said Tila. “I wish they would go on with their lives and leave us alone because we don’t have time for that pettiness.”

Tequila saved most of her wrath for Courtenay, the daughter of former Yahoo! CEO Terry Semel and a former flame of both Tila and Johnson. About a year ago, sources said Semel set Casey's hair on fire.

“Courtenay is a crazy vile woman and she is the most evil person,” Tila said of her ex. “She would bad mouth Casey all the time."

Despite Court's warnings, Tila said she found Casey to be a wonderful girlfriend.

“I was so shocked because I thought she was going to be the crazy person that Courtenay was telling me. But she is the sweetest, cutest, most sensitive woman I’ve ever met in my life.”

Full disclosure: Courtenay Semel is a friend of the site. What will she have to say in response to these accusations? We'll try to find out and pass along her response to a curious public.

Exclusive

A long-time friend of Kim Kardashian, an ex of Lindsay Lohan and a general source for gossip fodder, Courtenay Semel wants to set the record straight.

Did she really intervene with Lindsay last week? Does she have a reality show in the works? Any sex tapes in her closet?

The Hollywood Gossip spoke exclusively to Semel, who covers the upcoming issue of Curve. She didn't hold anything back...

The Hollywood Gossip: Tell us about your upcoming Curve feature.
Courtenay Semel: I'm a photshoot virgin. I've never done a photo shoot before and I got asked to do this. I was shocked. I'm so honored they asked me to do the cover. I always felt uncomfortable about the fact that I basically got outed in a non-existent lesbian relationship. I felt I finally had a chance to "out" myself. That's normally the way it goes.

THG: Will you be making any appearances at events or on talk shows to publicize it?
Courtenay: I am, of course, having a party. I love parties. Not doing much to publicize this, but I do hope it'll show everyone a different side of me. There's a lot more to me than all the rumors and madness I went through this year.

THG: Do you have any other projects in the works?
Courtenay: I'm doing a show with Bunim Murray productions. The network is a secret, but its really exciting. You'll find out soon enough. Looking for a publisher for my book and just wrote my first feature, they'll all be a part of my show.

THG: Is there someone special in your life these days?
Courtenay: No. I'm absolutely positively single and ready to mingle. I'm married to my career right now.

THG: Do you still speak with Tila Tequila?
Courtenay: Tila and I still keep in touch. We'll always be friends.

THG: What about Kim Kardashian?
Courtenay: Of course. She's one of my oldest friends of life.

THG: Lindsay Lohan?
Courtenay: I supposedly cornered her in a bathroom last week at Crown bar and begged her to go to rehab. I don't remember that happening. But maybe that's the way to get her attention...

As ex-girlfriend Tila Tequila deals with an alleged assault by Shawne Merriman, it must be hard for Courtenay Semel to get out of bed each morning.

But the talentless socialite knows there are people in America much worse off than she is; specifically, the 47 million citizens that lack health insurance.

In a show of support for these individuals, Semel took to the only outlet she's famous enough to have: Facebook. She posted the following message on her account yesterday:

Semel's Facebook

It's unclear how many people followed her order and posted this as their status for the day. We're guessing Joe Wilson was not among any of those that did.

We make fun of Courtenay often because her name is spelled stupidly; she pretends to be a lesbian in order to make headlines; and because she once lit an ex-girlfriend's hair on fire.

But, hey, at least she's taking a stand on an issue with this Facebook post. That's preferable to celebrities that think the world needs to hear about their every thought and mundane action (yes, we're looking at you, Miley Cyrus).

Has Semel changed your mind on health care reform? Where do you stand on the issue?

Courtenay Semel might be back together with Tila Tequila.

But she's definitely in need of attention.

The daughter of a former Yahoo! CEO, Semel is the poor woman's Kim Kardashian: she's famous for being rich, but not nearly on the A-list level of her sex tape-starring friend.

While Kim makes headlines for looking good in a bikini and seriously dating an NFL star, Semel must pretend she's a lesbian and appear in public with Tequila every now and then just to stay relevant.

Expect this talentless pair to be spotted again one of these days, as Courtenay relayed the following inspirational quote to her Facebook friends today:

Facebook Pic

How very true and profound.

As the all-knowing Gossip Girl so perfectly states above, fate can work in mysterious ways. Sometimes it brings a pair of fake bisexuals together in the name of publicity; other times it causes reporters to realize no one cares about this couple.

Fake Lesbians

Without any acting gigs, albums or ounces of talent, expect Courtenay Semel and Tila Tequila to continue to kiss whenever a camera is around.

Courtenay Semel has gone from munching Tila Tequila's carpet to vomiting all over that of her living room.

As a result, the daughter of former Yahoo! CEO Terry Semel has checked into rehab.

Over the past few months, Semel has broken up with Tequila, assaulted a security guard and allegedly beat up new girlfriend Casey Johnson, setting her hair on fire. Looks like she's a bit late getting help for herself.

"Courtenay has indeed checked into rehab... She’s emotionally, physically and mentally exhausted. She is now taking responsibility for her actions and is excited for her chance to start over," said Semel's rep.

This begs two questions:

  1. Is she going to rehab for drugs or drinking?
  2. What the heck does the representative of Courtenay Semel do?!?

Courtenay Semel recently lit Casey Johnson's hair on fire.

In Semel's defense, her ex-girlfriend did have the nerve to show up at her house.

According to Page Six, Johnson got into a fight with her current partner earlier this week. Seeking comfort and/or cunnilingus, she headed over to Courtenay's. Big mistake.

"Casey went to Courtenay's house, and Courtenay proceeded to beat the crap out of her, and then she lit her hair on fire. Casey had to be hospitalized," a source told The New York Post.

Semel didn't deny the disagreement, though she referred to the whole hair-lighting accusation as "a major exaggeration."

Not worry, though: all is well in the land of attention-hungry lesbians.

"Courtenay and Casey are still close and are heading up to Sundance for the weekend," another source said, while Semel's rep added that his client's on-again, off-again relationship with Tila Tequila has ended.

Sounds like Courtenay and Casey may be in for a scorching hot time in Utah this weekend. Get it?!?
