Nick Cannon Calls Chelsea Handler Ugly, White Trash For Questioning His Comedic Skills. Nick Cannon won’t let a simple jibe go unpunished. Mariah Carey’s husband has unleashed several unfunny attacks on comedienne Chelsea Handler after the E! late night show host questioned his comedic prowess. The 30-year-old former rapper’s rants started when Chelsea found out he was going on a comedy tour, prompting her to write on Twitter on Thursday: “I just heard nick cannon is starting a comedy tour. Who’s going to do the comedy?”. This riled up Nick, who used to do a sketch comedy on Nickelodeon’s “All That” as a teenager. He responded with: “Wow @chelseahandler I actually used to have respect for you as a comic. But for one artist to diss another in the same art form. #Tasteless.” “Soon as I get off stage tonight, I’m going in on @chelseahandler I’m about to be relentless! OFF WITH HER HEAD but right now I got to focus.” Chelsea responded with a photo of a grape soda and a caption that reads: “@nickcannon pls drink this before you tweet me again.” After his show in New York, which he boasted was with a “standing ovation,” he then unleashed tweets that target the 35-year-old comedienne’s looks, even calling her white trash along with Howard Stern and Eminem. Some of his tweets read: “Everyone knows @Chelseahandler had sex with the head of E! for her show. So when its canceled does he get residual p***y for the reruns? “…looks like she got hit in the face with a hot bag of nickels!” “Just talked to @50cent He said he made@chelseahandler get G-Unit tattooed on her balls!” “@Chelseahandler @Howardstern @Eminem Why do all these angry ugly whitetrash folks want beef with me? What I do? I’m a harmless corny dude!” “@chelseahandler is like the new @joanrivers just without the funny and more plastic surgery” He then ended his tirades with a disclaimer, saying those were “just jokes.”
Lady Gaga debuted her hotly anticipated concept music video “Telephone” last week , a nearly 10-minute long Miracle Whip-infused dance party with a side of mass murder and Beyonce. The pop star teamed with “Paparazzi” director Jonas Akerlund and the “Single Lady” singer for the ambitious vid, which premiered on E! and dropped online late Thursday. “There’s certainly always a hidden message in my music videos,” Gaga told E! News. “But I would say most predominately, I’m always trying to convolute everyone’s idea of what a pop music video should be.” The captivating film is an achievement that both the pop star’s fans and those who may not be so gaga on the lady can appreciate, especially when Beyonce in Bettie Page bangs and a star-spangled pin-up dress joins a hippified Gaga — also in red, white and blue — to dance across the crime scene they’ve created out of an iconic diner. The pair has just poisoned everyone in the room, a collective punishment of sorts after none of the diners has stood up to Tyrese Gibson, who makes his cameo by sexually harassing the women and bullying the men. The massacre comes after Beyonce has just poured poison in Gibson’s coffee cup and follows a dance scene where Gaga uses Miracle Whip, Wonder bread and vials of poison as props as she’s acting out an infomercial. In Gaga’s interview with E! News, the singer said she consulted with vengeance-film director extraordinaire Quentin Tarantino to sound out her ideas on the project. The director also lent Gaga the “Pu*** Wagon” from “Kill Bill” to use in her video. “There certainly is a Tarantino-inspired quality in the video,” Gaga told E! The video also features new Gaga fashion firsts like sunglasses made from cigarette butts and Diet Coke-can hair curlers.
When detectives investigating a rash of burglaries at the homes of young celebrities raided a Westlake Village house in October, they turned up a Marc Jacobs handbag reported stolen by the actress Rachel Bilson, a Chanel necklace reported missing by Lindsay Lohan and an E! channel camera crew filming a reality show. Police booked an 18-year-old who lived in the home on a first-degree residential burglary charge, a felony that carries up to six years behind bars. But for the young woman, Alexis Neiers, and her family, there were worries beyond prison. “My family is in so much debt. If this TV show falls through, you don’t know how bad this is going to be,” her sister complained to a reporter a few days later. As it turned out, E! not only continued filming “Pretty Wild,” a show about wannabe-starlet sisters, but seized on Neiers’ alleged connection to the so-called Bling Ring to promote it. If anyone is still keeping track of the lines transgressed in reality TV, “Pretty Wild” would seem a moment to take note. Unlike celebrities who’ve turned their criminal cases into reality plot lines of redemption — the rapper T.I. or NFL quarterback Michael Vick — Neiers has no fame outside the burglary charge, making her televised story seem less a fall from grace than a rise through infamy. “If marketing a felony is a way to get buzz going, then to a network it’s a no-brainer. It’s cheesy, it makes crime cool, and it may make you want to take a shower after you watch,” said Marty Kaplan, a professor at the USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism. E! declined to make Neiers, who has pleaded not guilty, or her mother, who also appears on the show, available to discuss the program. Suzanne Kolb, E! president of marketing, news and online, defended the decision to continue with “Pretty Wild.” “You can’t be shooting a reality show and be upset when reality happens. . . . [Neiers' family] didn’t become less interesting when this happened,” she said. She denied that E! was rewarding bad behavior with fame and said the series will show the fallout “of being accused of something that Alexis maintains she didn’t do.” “We’re really heavy on the consequences, which is the reverse of glorifying it,” she said. E! greenlighted the show in August after the Bling Ring robberies started but before Neiers was identified as a suspect. The network is positioning the sisters — Neiers, 19-year-old model Tess and 15-year-old Gabby — as coarser versions of the Kardashians, the network’s marquee reality family. Like the Kardashians, there is a family matriarch, a reserved stepfather and a burning desire for the limelight, but the Neiers family is portrayed as a hard-partying bunch — “Three sisters raising hell in the city of angels.” The two older sisters writhe through a nightclub in the opening episode, spinning around a stripper pole, throwing themselves at astreet hustler-turned-rapperwho’s casting a video, and ignoring cellphone calls from their mother. The mother, Andrea Arlington, brags about giving all three of her “wild and crazy” daughters the prescription stimulant Adderall each morning as a treatment for attention deficit problems and regales the camera with tales of her own out-of-control youth. “I was in Playboy a lot back in the ’80s,” she says. The show was in its initial days of filming when police arrested Neiers as an alleged member of the Bling Ring, a circle of half a dozen friends, mostly teenagers, accused of burgling $3 million in art, designer clothing and other items from the residences of celebrities including Orlando Bloom, Paris Hilton and Megan Fox. Neiers is accused only in the July burglary of Bloom’s home, a crime caught on security video, although detectives found what they say is evidence from break-ins at the homes of Bilson and Lohan in Neiers’ house. The group’s tactics — they allegedly used TMZ.com to track their victims’ movements — and motives — authorities described the reputed ringleader as obsessed with fame — made the arrests an international media sensation. The surprised producers quickly adjusted to the charges. The lead LAPD investigator said that when officers served a warrant on Neiers’ home, an E! camera crew asked to film the search. “We said absolutely not,” Det. Brett Goodkin recalled recently. Neiers was taken to a Hollywood police station for questioning. She told police she had no idea her friends and acquaintances were robbers and was so drunk and horrified when she realized they were ransacking Bloom’s house that she vomited and urinated in his bushes. Arlington was at home when her daughter was handcuffed, but according to Goodkin, she didn’t arrive at the police station for hours. At that point, he said, she was wearing makeup and a microphone, and had a camera crew in tow. He said she wanted the crew to film the interrogation, a request police denied. (In the premiere, Arlington, a self-help devotee, blames the delay on her decision to “center” the family with a prayer circle before going to the station.) “My impression of the Neiers family was that they were more concerned about the reality show than the crimes we’re alleging she committed and the possible legal consequences,” Goodkin said. E! declined to say how much it was paying Neiers, but successful reality TV participants can parlay their fame into lucrative endorsements and additional television gigs. While other defendants agreed last year to repeated postponements of their cases in Superior Court — a routine practice that can allow time to share evidence and work out plea deals — Neiers refused. That made her the sole defendant at a preliminary hearing in December covered by a crowd of reporters. Among the media outlets recording the proceedings — in which two police detectives laid out the evidence — was E! Kolb, the network executive, said the show required all aspects of Neiers’ life be documented and that E! never instructed her how to handle her criminal case. Neiers’ attorney said the filming schedule was unrelated to her speedy trial demand. “It’s a constitutional right. We had legal and strategic reasons for doing so. It has nothing to do with anything else,” Jeffrey Rubenstein said. He said he was taking the case, set for April trial, seriously, but the premiere suggests a more eye-rolling tone from his client — or at least the show’s editors. After he tells Neiers, “I’m here to be your lawyer, so far as I am concerned, you’re grounded,” she stares at him blankly and the camera cuts to a shot of her gyrating on another stripper pole. “Yeah, right,” she says. Asked if participating in “Pretty Wild” was wise in light of charges, her attorney paused and then said, “Client control is always an issue in my business. In this case, it may just be a bigger issue.” Kolb said E! was hoping for an acquittal but prepared to rely on other family members for material should Neiers be incarcerated. She added she knew of no complaints about the show from advertisers. Kaplan, the USC professor, said everyone involved — E!, Neiers and her family and even viewers — may be getting exactly what they want. After her daughter is released on bail, Arlington asks, “What have I been telling you since you were little girls?” In unison, her daughters reply, “Never do anything you don’t want on the front page of the L.A. Times.”
Lindsay Lohan’s home has been targeted by burglars. Police were called to the ‘Mean Girls’ actress’ Los Angeles property at about 3pm on Tuesday (12.05.09) after a security alarm at the property was set off. A police officer said: ‘It was an attempted burglary. No property was taken. There was evidence that someone tried to get in her house, but there’s no evidence that they actually got inside or removed any of her property.’ After being alerted there was a problem at the property by the alarm company, police went to investigate and evidence of an attempted break-in, including pry-marks on a door and damage to a window. Lindsay was not at home at the time of the incident. ‘E! News’ has reported a man who has allegedly been stalking the 22-year-old star and making threats against her is a ‘person of interest’ in the case. At first, police reportedly believed someone had gained entry to the property and ransacked it because it was so ‘messy’. Los Angeles police officer Karen Rayner queried: ‘Is it normally like this, or did the intruder do it?’
The German supermodel is reportedly expecting her third child with her musician husband Seal and is delighted with the news. The pair also have a three-year-old son Henry and a two-year-old son Johan, and raise Heidi’s daughter Leni, four, together. Gossip website E! reports: “A source tells me that Klum, 35, is a little less than four months pregnant.” It has been claimed Heidi is planning to announce her happy news soon. Rumours about Heidi’s pregnancy began circulating when details of couture gowns she will wear on US TV series ‘Project Runway’ were posted online. The outfits have reportedly had to be re-designed in order to accommodate her growing tummy. Heidi is not the only famous face to be surrounded by pregnancy rumours. Angelina Jolie is said to be two months pregnant with her fourth biological child with partner Brad Pitt. The actress – who already has daughter Shiloh, two, nine-month-old twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline and adopted kids Maddox, seven, Pax, five and three-year-old Zahara – was amazed when she found out the happy news. A source told America’s Star magazine: “Yes, Angelina is pregnant. They’d been trying for another baby for months, but it was still a total shock when she found out.”
The ‘Mean Girls’ actress insists she can improve the lives of her fans by playing characters who are giving and thoughtful. She said: “I love to act and write and be creative and I want to help people by playing characters that can send a positive message out to whomever may need it.” The 22-year-old star – who is currently dating DJ Samantha Ronson and has completed three stints in rehab – added she has now overcome her demons and is determined to move on with her life. Lindsay plans to use her past experiences to help others, adding she hopes to start her own charity and build a solid career in the creative industries. She added to E!: “I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs and I don’t lie. My past is my past and it’s been a long one, but I’m growing more and learning more day by day. I’m not the same person and I don’t make the same mistakes. “I’ve been through a lot in my life. I’d like to have my own charity, do work overseas, be in Oscar-nominated films, write movies, produce movies, shows and videos, design clothes, make music and write books.”
Meanwhile, Lindsay and Samantha have been overheard having a row about Lindsay’s alleged infidelity. A locksmith was called to their home on Monday night (23.03.09) to release the actress from the bathroom, after Samantha told photographers Lindsay had accidentally locked herself in. However, witnesses say they could hear Lindsay crying and screaming: “I never cheated on you!” A source told gossip website x17online: “It sounded like Lindsay was going crazy in there – like a toddler throwing a tempter tantrum. We’ve heard them fight before, but they’ve never had to call someone to the house like this!” Samantha left their home 30 minutes later for her DJ set at Hollywood’s One Sunset restaurant but Lindsay stayed behind.
