Elin-kids-tiger-woods Let me preface this by saying Barbara Walters isn't my favorite person, for soooo many reasons.

Gosselin Kids Need More Attention, Gosselin Parents Need To Grab a Clue

Kate-gosselin Kate Gosselin claims the children miss the camera crew they have grown accustomed to having in their life.  I call bullshit.

Tiger Woods' Wife Moves Out

Tiger-woods Well, well, after last week when the reports were that she was renegotiating her prenup to stay two more years for a bigger payout, the new word on the street is the Elin Nordegren has wised up and moved out.  I guess one mistress was ok but 10 were not.

Jon and Kate: The Show and The Marriage Is Over

Kate-gosselin-with-children-225x300 And curtain call.

Tonight is the finale of Jon and Kate Plus 8.  And it is looking like the nastiest divorce in history of people who should never have been celebrities in the first place  is going to be final by the end of the year.  What ever am I going to write about?

Jon Gosselin Just Might Have Redeemed Himself. A Little. Maybe.

Jon-gosselin-2 This just in: Jon Gosselin might be a little bit more self-reflective than we think. Which is maybe not saying much, seeing as we - I - had thought that he wasn't at all self-reflective, but still. Check out this video from Funny Or Die - in which he spoofs and regrets his own douchey-single-dad-on-the-prowl persona - and tell me that he doesn't deserve just a teensy bit of credit for a smidge of self-reflectivity. And bonus cred for "DELETE MICHAEL LOHAN":

The Famous Faces of Domestic Abuse

Chris_Brown_Rhianna The Internet is abuzz this week with news of Rhianna's 20/20 and Good Morning America interviews (Jodi also wrote about Rhianna speaking out about her domestic violence experience here), the ones she's giving in conjunction with the release of her new album, Rated R.

Gosselins Resolve Money Issue, Maybe

JON KATE PLUS EIGHT Well, Jon and Kate were told to settle their monetary issues, and it seems like they did.  They were in court today to discuss who stole the cookie from the cookie jar, and all seems simpatico in Gosselin land.  Or not.  Who knows with those two?

The fate of Jon & Kate Plus Eight

Jon-and-kate-gosselin No matter how you slice it, Jon & Kate Gosselin have become nothing more than a reality-TV cautionary tale and the pop-culture version of a really bad and seemingly never-ending joke. Just when you think it can't get any more uncomfortable or you can't possibly enjoy it any less, something happens to make you need a shower and a little time with the Duggars. And without the Gosselins, you'd NEVER need time with the Duggars.

What started as a family playing out the highs and lows of parenting a large family on TV has turned into a media circus and a tabloid story that just won't end. They are on countless magazine covers and talk shows and reputable news sources, even. They are the Angelina and Brad of reality TV. Except with far shittier haircuts. And they're not on anyone's freebie list.

Now, finally, there's an end in sight. Jon & Kate Plus Eight is over next month. For good.

The entire world just exhaled.

Gosselins Told To Go Away And Settle The Money Stuff

Jon-kate-gosselin Jon and Kate Gosselin were in court yesterday to meet with their attorneys and to arbitrate the famous "who took the money" issue.  Except, nothing was done.  They got a new court date of October 26, 2009.  They were also told to work something out amicably.

I love it when judges do that.

The specifics of the order are after the jump.

Kate Gosselin Files for Child And Spousal Support

Kate-gosselin The Gosselin drama, does it ever end?

Kate has filed court documents asking for child support and temporary spousal support in the wake of Jon taking nearly $230,000 from their joint bank account.  "She needs relief in light of the draining of substantial marital assets in violation of the arbitrator's decision that the money should be used only for specific purposes," says Mark Momjian, one of her divorce attorneys.

Oh, and supposedly her credit card was denied this weekend, when she was trying to get gas, and she had to abandon the whole pay at the pump thingie, AND WALK IN THE STORE AND PAY CASH.  Of course the paparazzi got the whole thing on film.  News at 11.

Jon Gosselin, Giving Douchery A Whole New Name


Headline: Kate and Jon Gosselin At War Over Filming Kids Birthday Party.

Right, because Jon's now all opposed to that shit, right?

Wait... what?

JON'S the one who wants to let the film crews in?


Usher Writes Song About Divorce and Shocking: It Is Not Nice

Usher-and-tameka And just when we thought the Usher and Tameka divorce was going to be civil.  Wait, did we ever think that?

Usher has just released a new song and it is all about his divorce.  Because what makes a better song than a divorce?

The song even references firing his mother as his manager because Tameka wanted him to.  "I gave my heart and turned my back against the world 'cuz you were my girl," he sings, continuing, "I done damn near lost my mama/I done been through so much drama/I done turned into the man I never thought I'd be/I'm ready to sign them papers."  Ouch.

You can hear the full song after the jump.

Mel Gibson Retroactively Sober; Anti-Semitic Rant Still Going Strong

Mel_Gibson We've always thought of Hollywood as a magical land of make-believe, where dreams come to life and anything that can be imagined can be made real on the screen. But in a stunning new twist that seems to defy the generally acknowledged laws of the space-time continuum, Mel Gibson has suddenly and miraculously gone back in time and stopped himself from driving drunk.

As MamaPop's Jodifur reported only a week ago, onetime idol of millions Gibson has been seeking to have his DUI expunged from the legal record, as is apparently the right of first-time DUI convictees who manage to make their way successfully through court-ordered meetings and public service. On Tuesday, that wish was granted by a California judge.
