Lindsay Lohan charged with lying to cops and assault on the same day

Posted by Kristi Palma November 30, 2012 08:05 AM

Yesterday was not a very good day for Lindsay Lohan.

Not only was Lilo arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman at a club, but hours later she was also charged with lying to police in a separate incident.

First, the "Liz & Dick" star allegedly punched 28-year-old Tiffany Eve Mitchell at New York City's Avenue nightclub. Mitchell was visiting the club with her husband and Lohan when she and her posse tried to kick Mitchell out of the lounge area where they were sitting, reports E! News. Later, as Mitchell was walking out, Lohan reportedly punched her from behind and knocked her to the ground.

As for the lying, Santa Monica police charged Lohan for lying to cops about a car accident that happened in June in which Lohan's vehicle slammed into the back of the truck on a Los Angeles highway. Lohan told police she was not driving, but according to the E! News video above, a police investigation found her claim false.

Lohan was also in the news for fighting with her mom this fall as well as for canceling on Barbara Walters.

Her mom Dina Lohan said the cancellation had something to do with trying to focus on her professional, rather than her personal, life.

What do you think of Lohan's latest run-in with the law?

Fifty-year-old actress Demi Moore is rumored to be dating 26-year-old art dealer Vito Schnabel, according to a New York Post Page Six exclusive.

Sources told the newspaper that "Moore and Schnabel first got cozy as guests at Naomi Campbell's over-the-top 50th birthday party earlier this month for billionaire boyfriend Vladimir Doronin in Jodhpur, India."

Scnabel, son of artist and filmmaker Julian Schnabel, has previously been linked to Elle Macpherson, 44, and Liv Tyler, 35. Moore's rumored boy toy is just two years older than her 24-year-old daughter Rumer Willis.

Reps for both Schnabel and Moore did not comment on the rumored romance.

Moore, who was first criticized for her romance with younger man Ashton Kutcher, announced she was divorcing the "Two and a Half Men" star in Nov., 2011. Kutcher has since been seen smooching his "That '70s Show" costar Mila Kunis. The two have been spotted together in Rome, New York City, and Los Angeles during the past few months.

Hold the phone. According to an Us Weekly exclusive source, Jessica Simpson is pregnant -- again.

In response to the Us Weekly cover story, a rep for the 32-year-old singer-turned-fashion designer told CNN, "I won't be commenting on speculation made by Us Weekly."

Simpson recently revealed (pictured) she had shed 60 of the 70 pounds she put on while pregnant with now 7-month-old daughter Maxwell Drew. Maxwell is the first child of Simpson and fiance Eric Johnson.

The former Mrs. Nick Lachey is currently a spokesperson for Weight Watchers. The company debuted its first commercial featuring the singer in September.

Two weeks after being named GQ's filmmaker of the year, Boston native Ben Affleck has been dubbed Entertainment Weekly's entertainer of the year. The 40-year-old star will be featured on this week's EW cover, which hits newsstands Nov. 29.

An EW staff post attributed 40-year-old Affleck's selection for the "number one spot on [the] annual list of the most talented and original performers who entertained [the staff] in 2012" to his performance in "Argo."

Affleck directed and starred in the film, and his role as Tony Mendez, a CIA operative and exfiltration expert, has EW wondering about Academy Award nominations.

Boston Globe critic Wesley Morris noted in his review of "Argo" that "Affleck is the first actor since [Warren] Beatty’s generation of stars to make a persuasive case for himself as an honest-to-goodness Hollywood filmmaker."

'Two and a Half Men' star Angus T. Jones apologizes for his rant

Posted by Kristi Palma November 28, 2012 07:48 AM

Teenage actor Angus T. Jones apologized for telling people not to watch his hit CBS show, "Two and a Half Men," referring to it as "filth."

Jones ranted about the show in a YouTube video made by Forerunner Chronicles, a Seventh-day Adventist ministry. He also denounced the show to several religious media outlets. His comments include calling himself a "paid hypocrite," reports The Associated Press.

Now, he's issued an apology:

Here is part of the statement he gave to E! News:

"I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that."

The AP reports that Jones, who makes a reported $350,000 an episode, has no plan of getting out of his contract.

And what does Charlie Sheen, who was fired from "Two and a Half Men" after he had what was described as a public meltdown, have to say about it all?

He told E! News: "With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed."

There has been no official comment from CBS, but E! News reports that a show insider said "everyone was completely blindsided" by the incident and the network has been holding "high-level meetings" about it.

And, of course, the viral Jones clip is already being spoofed. Check out Rainn Wilson, of "The Office," mocking it.

Thoughts on Jones's apology? Do you think he'll stay on the show?

'Two and a Half Men' star Angus T. Jones calls the show 'filth'

Posted by Kristi Palma November 27, 2012 07:55 AM

An actor from the CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men" is publicly bashing the show.

Sound familiar?


Charlie Sheen was fired from "Two and a Half Men" in 2011 when it appeared the actor was having a public meltdown, during which time Sheen made negative comments about the show and its producers, including calling the show a "pukefest." His character was killed off the show and Ashton Kutcher replaced him. (Photo: Reuters/Gus Ruelas)

But this time it's Angus T. Jones doing the bashing, calling the show he grew up on "filth."

"Please don't watch 'Two and a Half Men,'" he said. "I'm on 'Two and a Half Men' and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth."

Jones said this in a YouTube video posted by TheForerunner777. It seems the show does not match his newfound Christian beliefs.

"You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that," he said.

Jones, 19, has played Jake Harper on the show since 2003 and was named one of Hollywood's richest kids in 2008, when he made $1.2 million per season.

A representative for CBS told they are "declining comment."

Do you think Jones will leave the show? Should he?

Chris Brown has quit Twitter. Again.

If fans go to Brown's Twitter page, they will find this message: "Sorry, that page doesn't exist!"

The R&B singer got into a Twitter fight that turned vulgar with comedy writer Jenny Johnson. Read the exchange on E! News (Please note: The language is strong).

The last time Brown quit Twitter was in December 2009 after ranting about Walmart not carrying his album "Graffiti."

This time, he called society "immature" before signing off. Read more of Brown's tweets on Celebrity Tweet.

Taylor Swift makes ET's Power List

Posted by Kristi Palma November 21, 2012 07:34 AM

Taylor Swift is the latest edition to the First Annual Power List by "Entertainment Tonight."

The 22-year-old singer, writer, and Cover Girl is worth an estimated $165 million and she has more than 20 million Twitter followers.

"Entertainment Tonight" asked her to take an ET Power List quiz. Some of her quiz questions included:

The best advice she's ever received?

"To be kind to people," Swift told ET. "No matter how bad a day you're having, don't take it out on other people."

And the worst advice she's ever received?

"'Live it up, you're young!' Swift said. "That's horrible advice. I mean, c'mon, I can't live it up. If I live it up, it's on national newspapers."

She goes on to talk about the food she loves to indulge in, her proudest moment of 2012, and more, in the ET video above.

Is Kelly Clarkson ready to settle down?

Posted by Kristi Palma November 20, 2012 07:28 AM

Is Miss Independent Kelly Clarkson finally settling down?

She's been with boyfriend Brandon Blackstock for eight months.

Blackstock is the step-son of Clarkson's pal Reba McEntire. So would their union make McEntire her mother-in-law? Well, one thing is for sure. Marrying Blackstock would make Clarkson herself a step-mom. That's because he is the father of two kids.

"I would be a rad step-mom," Clarkson, 30, told E! News in the video above.

But when asked if they plan to marry, she said this: "We're totally probably going to get married. I mean we love each other. But, you know, there's also different things that come into play. He has two children and you want to make sure everybody is cool with the transition."

So, for now, the first-ever "American Idol" winner said she is taking things slow, saying just because she's famous doesn't mean she's going to get married super quick.

Do you think Clarkson and Blackstock should tie the knot?

Robert De Niro reportedly scolds Jay-Z for not returning his calls

Posted by Kristi Palma November 16, 2012 06:42 AM

When acting great Robert De Niro calls you six times and you don't call him back, expect him to call you out on it -- at least that's how the story goes with regard to a recent interaction between him and rap mogul Jay-Z.

When De Niro saw Jay-Z at Leonardo DiCaprio's star-studded birthday bash, he made no qualms about calling the rapper rude and disrespectful, according to Page Six of the New York Post.

So why does De Niro want to talk to Jay-Z so badly?

According to Page Six, De Niro was reaching out to Jay-Z, a fellow Tribeca resident, about a song Jay-Z agreed to record for the Tribeca Film Festival. Jay-Z was reportedly unfazed by De Niro's comments and tried to joke about it, but De Niro wasn't going to be sweet talked. De Niro didn't even soften up when Jay-Z's wife Beyonce approached the pair, a source told the New York Post.

Dina Lohan explains why Lindsay canceled on Barbara Walters

Posted by Kristi Palma November 15, 2012 07:56 AM

Barbara Walters and Lindsay Lohan aren't exactly exchanging pleasantries this week.

After Lohan canceled a 20/20 interview with Walters, Walters didn't contain her feelings about it on The View Monday, telling viewers she was "disappointed."

Now Lindsay's mother Dina Lohan is speaking out about why her daughter dissed Walters.

Dina Lohan told "Entertainment Tonight," in the above video, that her daughter's new PR team is to blame for giving the interview the ax.

"It was just a decision that the higher-ups made," Dina told ET.

She said her daughter really wants to focus on her professional rather than her personal life. Lindsay is starring as Elizabeth Taylor in a new Lifetime movie, "Liz & Dick", airing November 25.

Yet it's been an autumn full of controversies for the Lohan family.

In September, Lindsay was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of a NYC accident in September.

Also in September, Dina Lohan seemed to come unraveled, slurring her speech and appearing disoriented during a much-publicized interview with Dr. Phil.

In October, there was a public fight between Lindsay and her mother. Lindsay reportedly called her dad Michael Lohan, screaming and crying and said, "Daddy, they won't let me out of the car" about her mother and the limo driver.

Tatum is People's 'sexiest man,' Affleck a GQ 'Man of the Year'

Posted by Emily Wright November 14, 2012 12:15 PM

Channing Tatum has worked his way up to Hollywood heartthrob status. The 32-year-old celebrity started his storied career as a construction-worker-turned-stripper (inspiration for the film "Magic Mike"), was then discovered by a model scout, morphed from a model into an actor, and on Nov. 14 he was crowned People magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive."

Tatum joins the ranks of former "sexiest men" like Boston's own Matt Damon (2007) and Ben Affleck (2002), and two-time winners Johnny Depp (2009, 2003), George Clooney (2006, 1997), and Brad Pitt (2000, 1995).

Tatum was bestowed another magazine honor this fall, dubbed GQ's "Movie Star of the Year." He's the face of one of three covers for the magazine's December issue, on newsstands now.

Affleck, who was dubbed the GQ "Filmmaker of the Year" -- one of the "Men of the Year" honors -- will appear on a separate cover of his own Nov. 16. The actor and director got his start as an actor with the Boston-based film "Good Will Hunting," which he co-wrote with Damon.  

The third "Man of the Year" cover goes to a woman: Rihanna. She is the magazine's "Obsession of the year."

More about Barbara Palvin, the Victoria's Secret model linked to Justin Bieber

Posted by Kristi Palma November 14, 2012 08:08 AM

More information is coming out about the Victoria's Secret model recently linked to Justin Bieber in the wake of his break-up with Selena Gomez.

Model Barbara Palvin attended a showing of Broadway’s hit musical "The Lion King" with Bieber last week. And Gomez tweeted out a photo of the two of them, writing only "...."

The pair have been hanging out, but Palvin tweeted that they are just friends.

Hungarian beauty Palvin, 19, was discovered at age 13. She loves soccer and Japanese anime films.

The model dissed both Bieber and Gomez in an interview for Ustream in December.

Here is what she said:

"I had a Bieber fever for two days, that's why I was singing him," said Palvin, adding, "But I don't like him."

She also said, "I don't like Selena Gomez."

But fans may wonder if any of this matters, because Palvin is taken.

That's right, she's got a boyfriend, according to the E! News video above. He's a business student from Hungary. They've been together for two years.

In the meantime, Selena is sad about the break-up, reports E! News.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez break up

Posted by Kristi Palma November 12, 2012 07:35 AM

Justin Bieber may be singing his hit song "Boyfriend" to a lady other than Selena Gomez these days.

The couple of more than a year has split and, rumor has it, a Victoria's Secret model may be waiting in the wings.

The breakup of the 18-year-old teen singing sensation Bieber and his girlfriend, former "Wizards of Waverly Place" star Gomez, 20, was reported by E! News Friday.

Well, Boston Beliebers are showing their support in the Canadian heartthrob's time of need. Boston fans such as @Claraa101 tweeted:

And Biebs is feeling the Boston love, tweeting:

So what happened exactly? Bieber isn't talking much about it. And a source told E! News only: "Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship."

"I don't know what to say," Bieber told the Open House Party radio show Saturday. "I don't know what's going on in my life. To even assess that, it doesn't make sense, 'cause I have not made any comment."

Palvin insists there's nothing between them, tweeting:

What does Gomez think of the romance rumors between her ex and the model? She tweeted this photo of Bieber with Palvin standing behind him, writing only, "...."

In the meantime, Gomez kept herself busy over the weekend. She was all smiles in NY over the weekend, promoting her Kmart Dream Out Loud Line. Then, a somber-faced Gomez seemed to get support from a friend, judging from the E! News photo of a friend holding her hand.

Do you think Bieber and Gomez will get back together?

Posted by Kristi Palma November 9, 2012 07:15 AM

Is Rihanna back with Chris Brown?

The singer and her ex have been spotted around town together, sparking rumors that the couple is back together.

The pair broke up in 2009 after Brown physically assaulted her. Rihanna sat down with Andy Cohen, host of Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live," who asked her about her personal life.

"Are you guys together?" Cohen asked.

"No," she said.

But she did tell Cohen, "He's pretty dope," reports Entertainment Weekly.

Brown sings a duet with Rihanna on her new album, "Unapologetic." The song is called "Nobody's Business." Cohen asked what the title of the song means.

"Nobody's business is basically the way I look at everything regarding my personal life," Rihanna said.

Chaz Bono talks about his weight-loss battle

Posted by Kristi Palma November 8, 2012 07:16 AM

Chaz Bono, the child of Cher and Sonny Bono who changed his gender from female to male, is now speaking out about his weight.

"I don't like to talk about this issue," said Bono, 43. "It's very personal for me."

Bono is five-feet, three-inches tall and weighs 250 pounds. He told "Entertainment Tonight" that being transgender has nothing to do with his weight --that he was overweight before he changed his gender.

He has turned to TV to fight his weight battle in the past, appearing on "Celebrity Fit Club" in 2006. He was also on "Dancing with the Stars" last year, which helped him burn calories. Now he's turning to Dr. Travis Stork from "The Doctors" to help him lose 50 to 80 pounds.


Chaz said he works out, but genes play a part in his obesity. He said he takes after his dad's side of the family, calling his mom's mom "skinny." He also told he was under a lot of pressure to be "underweight" growing up and was put on many diets.

He will begin his weight-loss journey Nov. 14 on "The Doctors," which airs on channel 7 (WHDH) at 2 p.m., and will journal his weight loss for the next year for the show. ("Dancing with the Stars" photo: AP photo/ABC, Adam Taylor)

New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady's wife, Gisele Bundchen, is showing off her baby bump in a bikini. The pregnant supermodel was sunning herself in Miami Beach yesterday, reports

The couple confirmed the pregnancy in August. It will be Brady's third child. He and Bundchen have a son together, two-year-old Benjamin Rein Brady. Brady has another son with former girlfriend Bridget Moynahan, 5-year-old John Edward Thomas Moynahan.

It sounds like she may have known she was going to be relaxing in the sun, since she told her fans Friday "Have a bright weekend!" on her Facebook page.

Pregnancy certainly hasn't slowed Bundchen down.

Last month, Mrs. Brady, 32, was in Boston for the MFA gala celebrating the new Mario Testino exhibition.

Do you think this baby Brady will be a boy or a girl?

Kristen Stewart talks 'mind-blowing' kisses

How does a vampire kiss?

Kristen Stewart tried to explain it to "Entertainment Tonight" in the video above, sitting alongside costars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.

"I feel like every single scene in this movie culminates with some kiss of some kind," said Stewart. "Also, the vampire aspect, you're supposed to have this mind-blowing, inhuman do you do that?"

As the press tour continues for "Breaking Dawn: Part 2," Pattinson, 26, and Stewart, 22, continue to have their real lives scrutinized by the media as they are rumored to be spending time together after a very scandalous and public break-up in which Stewart cheated on Pattinson with director Rupert Sanders.

Then the world watched, and speculation grew, as the pair seemed to meet in secret before reportedly making up this fall.

The cast of "Jersey Shore" is reacting to Hurricane Sandy's devastation to Seaside Heights, the town on the Atlantic where the show filmed four seasons, including the series finale of the canceled show that will air later this year.

The storm washed away much of the "Jersey Shore" town. Buildings were knocked down, streets and homes were flooded, and the famous boardwalk was ripped up.

The cast took to Twitter to share photos, thoughts, prayers, and to urge people to donate to the Red Cross.

Here is some of what they are posting:

From Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi :

Jenni "JWOWW" Farley posted a photo of the devastated boardwalk on her blog, along with some thoughts.

She also tweeted:

Devastation doesn't last forever We can and will rebuild! Thinking about my second family at the Jersey Shore.

And she retweeted this photo by fiance Roger Mathews:

Paul DelVecchio, or "DJ Pauly D," tweeted:

American Red Cross' disaster relief efforts at the Jersey Shore and elsewhere please text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
Thinking of everyone on the east coast stay safe through this horrible time #hurricanesandy

And Vinny Guadagnino tweeted:

Just saw our Police Chief Boyd of Seaside on the news risking his life to save people. #HERO
