Juicy Hollywood Scandal

Here is some scandalous gossip for you which we haven’t heard the likes of in a while. The reason has come out to why hunky actor Lorenzo Lamas and his beautiful 4th wife, former Playmate of the Month, Shauna Sand divorced. It seems that Shauna was having an affair…but not just any old affair; she was having an affair with then 18 year old step son, AJ Lamas. After all the years of soap opera acting it appears he has been living a real life one.  A friend says, “He thought Shauna was acting like a mom to AJ, he had no clue that she was his son’s lover!” That has got to be the lowest form of betrayal ever! If you want to see more about this Hollywood family you will get your chance. Lamas and his family, including AJ and daughter Shayne, who was the “winner” on ABC’s “The Bachelor”, as well as Shayne’s sister, Dakota will have their own reality series on E! this fall.  E! just loves the family reality series don’t they?.

Forbes has just come out with the 12 highest earning celebrities under 30 and seriously the numbers will make you want to puke. Sorry that was harsh, I know they are hard working people, but really, what can one person do with all that money? They could feed a 3rd world country exclusively on their own. Ok, just had to get that out. Here are the numbers, you decide if you agree with me or not. This is certainly not a shocker, Beyonce was in the #1 spot, and this past year, June 2008 – June 2009 earned a staggering $87 million. Not bad for a 27 year old! Taking the #2 spot is Kimi Raikkonen, who is a Formula 1 race car driver and he earned $45 million in the past year. The 3rd place spot goes to another sports figure, 24 year old LeBron James, who is an NBA superstar for the Cleveland Cavaliers. He earned $40 million thanks to all his endorsements from Nike, State Farm, VitaminWater and Upperdeck. And of course you can’t forget those crazy Disney kids who are raking in the big bucks. The Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus both earned $25 million. Must be nice to work for Disney and achieve all that stardom.

Well I held off for two whole paragraphs but there is a Michael Jackson story that I have to tell you about. Bill O’Reilly is spouting off some crazy talk about Michael Jackson. In fact he did it on the day of the memorial service which just seemed so inappropriate to begin with. O’Reilly totally goes off on Jackson. One of the first things that he rants about is how selfish Jackson was and how much he spent on himself while there are others who need that money. He says, “His incredible selfishness spending hundreds of millions of dollars on himself while singing “We Are the World” should make any clear thinking American nauseas.” Then he goes on and on about how is Michael really a black icon? He talks about how he bleached his skin and had white men’s sperm to create his children. He wanted to be white so why all the support from the black community, the community he tried so hard to get away from. He also feels that Jackson has been made into a hero while he has most likely died from a drug overdose and had inappropriate relationships with children. He just doesn’t understand all the outpouring of love for this man. Oh I just can’t even listen to Bill O’Reilly, maybe it’s because he loves to just hear himself talk and not listen to anyone else. And the yelling, why can’t the man just have a conversation, why does he feel the only way he can be heard is by yelling? Here is the clip; you decide how inappropriate he is. He talks about Michael Jackson and rips him apart every which way, it is just horrible to watch and listen too.

On a lighter note, sweet, 19 year old Emma Watson had a bit of a wardrobe malfunction on the red carpet for the premiere of the new Harry Potter movie, “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince” which opens July 15. The premiere was in London and it was pouring rain and as she was rearranging her wet dress, it came apart, and the media got a good look at her in her underwear. Watson is taking it all in stride though and like she told David Letterman last night on his show, “At least I’m wearing underwear.” Good point Emma, now that would have been embarrassing.        

Demi Lovato Announces Summer Tour

Disney’s new “it girl”, Demi Lovato is heading out on tour this summer, starting June 21st in Hartford Connecticut. If you don’t have kids you might not know who I am talking about but this 16 year old girl is the next Miley Cyrus. She currently stars in the new Disney channel show, “Sonny with a Chance” or you may know her from the show “Camp Rock” which she was in with fellow co – stars the Jonas Brothers. Demi is going to be quite a busy kid doing 47 shows this summer which is basically a different city every night. David Archuleta from the 7th season of “American Idol” will be her opening act and Jordan Pruitt and well as KSM will also be helping her out during the tour for special dates. Not bad summer plans for a 16 year old kid.

You know it must be time for,”Project Runway” to come back because Heidi Klum is pregnant again. I swear it seems like she is always pregnant during the show, and season 7, which will begin shooting this summer will be no different. So getting back to the facts…Heidi is pregnant with baby # 4. Talk about supermodel – supermom. Heidi and husband Seal, already have 2 sons together, Henry, 3 and Johan 2, and Heidi has a daughter, Leni 5, which Seal has adopted. Busy and beautiful – congratulations!

Yesterday I shared with you the news about Mel Gibson and his wife of 28 years going through what will probably be the most expensive Hollywood divorce to date, and today I am here to tell you that Mel does not seem all that worried about it because he is vacationing in Costa Rica with a 24 year old. The woman, Oksana Pochepa, who is a Russian pop singer, told The Sun magazine, which is a British publication that “she had a romantic relationship with Gibson and is in love. This is serious and I hope our union will be real and strong and long – lasting.” I am sure she does hope that. Good luck with that!
Who do you think will win this race?  So get this… Ashton Kutcher has challenged the CNN network to see who can be the first to get 1 million followers on Twitter. In fact he really doesn’t believe he can do it. He is one person and CNN is a media company. He says if he does to it however he will go to Ted Turners’ house, who is the founder of CNN, and play ding dong ditch on his house. Kutcher is actually in 3rd place with the highest number of followers coming in with 896,947 and Britney Spears is 2nd highest with 905,640 followers and currently CNN is in 1st place with 937,787 followers. No one yet has reached 1 million twitter followers. Now that Ashton has put it out there, I bet he can do it. He has offered his 1 millionth person a copy of Guitar Hero, and he also twittered that he would donate 10,000 mosquito nets for beds to charity if he wins and 1000 if he loses.  Larry King and Ashton have been chatting and are both hoping for their own victory. Stay tuned.
