New shuffle for breast cancer

Target is now selling a special edition pink iPod shuffle with a portion of the proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. There is no word on whether Apple is involved. A total of $25,000 will be donated to the organization. Included in the package is a booklet on the foundation and a $15 iTunes gift card. I bought one for my sister's birthday as a gift and as something for a good cause - our mother is breast cancer survivor. If you see on in a Target store near you, it is only $79 dollars - not to mention super cute and for a good cause - so please purchase it =)

Pregnancy rumors: False!

Disney's Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus has been making headlines this week after someone posted a mock interview online with Cyrus in which she supposedly said she was expecting a child. The false statement read as follows: "I'm going to take good care of my baby. I've already gained 7 pounds. I was in real shock when it happened accidentally. I went a little too far. I'm sorry to all of my fans." A bit unrealistic, dontchathink? Despite all the rumors, the 14-year-old actress and singer has since dismissed the allegations and told TV's Extra, “It’s given me the street cred to say that would be impossible, because I’m living my life the way I believe is right and that is to stay pure.”

Original Proposal!

A couple in Boston recently became engaged after the groom-to-be, Aric Egmont, proposed to Jennie Bass in a....CROSSWORD PUZZLE?! The couple claim to be avid crossword puzzle lovers who often complete them together. Being something they love sharing, it was only appropritate for Aric to come up with this idea. He called up the editors of the Boston Globe and requested they do a puzzle which featured the line "Will You Marry Me Jennie?" In the latest issue of the Globe Sunday magazine, the crossword theme was "Popping the question" which featured a variety of proposals such as "Macrame artist's proposal" which was "Let's tie the knot." 35 Across was 16 letters for poker player's proposal "May I have your hand?" while others included Jennie's sisters name and her best friend's name which she originally thought of as just coincidence. Then came 111 across, whose clue read "Generic proposal" (Jen + Aric = generic). The answer was "Will you marry me?" 116 across read "Winston's [Churchill] mother" and the answer was "Jennie." Her answer was a Down clue beginning with the "Y" in "Marry" - YES.

Season Finale

Noggin aired the season finale of South of Nowhere. This season of Nowere picked up from the aftermath of the shooting which occured last season. Season 3 featured heavy drama, showcasing Chelsea's struggle alone with her pregnancy after losing Clay as well as losing the baby. Aiden, who was also shot but survived, began experiencing constant nightmares of the night of the shooting. Spencer and Ashley split in the beginning of season 3 for their relationship became too complicated. Spencer sought comfort in new-girl Carmen but soon distanced herself after Carmen became abusive. Spencer's relationship with her mother also suffered as she learned that her mother had still not accepted her homosexuality or her relationship with Ashley. Madison and Aiden reunited, not as a couple again, but as friends with extra benefits or "crime fighters" as they liked to refer to their intercourse sessions. By the end of the season, Madison left and ended her "sessions" with Aiden, Chelsea became part of the group again, and Glen became Ashley and Kyla's security guard. Ashley managed to mend broken relationships with both Spencer's mother and Spencer herself. She convinced Spencer's mother to attend the Gay Pride event taking place and also reunited with Spencer herself. Looking forward to Season 4!

I was on the radio/Chris Crocker!

Chris Crocker, a 19 year old from-no one knows where (he doesn't release that info apparently)-spends his spare time creating videos for YouTube. His videos range from being unique, thought-provoking, and hilarious, and on occasion all of the above. The avid Britney Spears fan recently made a video in which he defended her and claimed that if someone has a problem with her, they'd have to see him. Since posting the video, Crocker's video has been featured on Fox news and He even scored a radio interview earlier this afternoon. I was dissapointed that so many haters called in. Why bother if you're just going to be rude. The hosts were even rude.I called in the radio and I proudly stated how much I love Chris Crocker's talent-so proud that I slipped out "Fuck the haters." Haha they pretty much were making fun of me and calling me stupid for letting that one slip on-air. What I want to know they let "Nigger" and "Faggot" be aired, as they are deragotive?
Anyway, check out Chris Crocker on Myspace or on YouTube.

VMAs 2007

UGH. I was really trying to refrain myself from writing about Britney Spears simply because almost every other website/radio/television show has covered her...yet I have my own comments to make. I'll say that I'm disappointed Britney didn't do too well. While I'm not a huge fan, especially of her erratic behavior, I think everyone should get a second chance to redeem themselves, and their careers, and I wish she had taken advantage of the evening. Anyway, more about the evening: Sarah Silverman...yech! Just no no no. I really disliked the routine. Why degrade your comedic talent and resort to referring to Britney's babies as "mistakes?" Children are the last thing one should judge when it comes to celebrities, they have no fault in their parent's actions or decisions. Justin Timberlake...I thank you for speaking your mind to MTV. PLEASE PLAY MORE VIDEOS. I liked Chris Brown's performance which had a Charlie Chaplin feel to it (I love it)...and that is pretty much all I saw. Work on making a better, less scandalous (I missed the Tommy Lee/Kid Rock fight!) awards show next year....and don't make it in Las Vegas again.


Readers: Disregard the post about the missing student from Florida State University. Fortunately, Ryan Giacomin was found, alive and healthy. He was not kidnapped, robbed, etc. Instead, he was in jail for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence. He gave police an alias but a guard recently recognized him from a newscast. I just feel bad for everyone who was worried about him...

If you're a fan of Kathy Griffin and her show, you know she's a self-proclaimed D-Lister. Maybe not for long though. After losing her Emmy nomination last year to Extreme Makeover:Home Edition, Griffin has risen to the C-List with her Emmy win Saturday night at the Creative Arts Primetime Emmys. Rather than give the typical acceptance speech, crazy Kathy delivered the following: “A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus,” Griffin said, going on to hold up her Emmy and proclaim, “This award is my god now!” I love her haha. Congrats!

HELP! Student Missing!

My sister attends Florida State University and as we were chatting online, she told me about a fellow student who went missing this past Monday.
This is the following information provided by

"Tallahassee police are looking for Ryan Giacomin, 20, who has been missing since 10 a.m. Monday. Giacomin, a junior at Florida State University, was last seen riding a scooter near his home in the 200 block of Bamboo Drive. He is 5-foot-9, weighs 165 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes. Anyone with information should call Tallahassee Police Department at 891-4200."

If you live in that area, please make sure to contact police immediately in case of a sighting!


Since being fired from The Disney Channel, it is rumored that Vanessa Hudgens has been replaced by Adrienne Bailon (left), best known as one of the Cheetah Girls. Neither Bailon's or Hudgens reps have confirmed anything about a replacement. What is certain for now is that Hudgens will not appear in High School Musical 3.

Saturday, September 8, 2007


High School Musical star, Vanessa Hudgens, admitted to the press that it was in fact her in the nude photograph, despite rumors of the picture being photoshopped. The public has also learned that while there was one nude photo found, several others were "suggestive" photographs. Since being leaked online to various websites, Hudgens said in a statement released Friday, “I want to apologize to my fans, whose support and trust means the world to me. I am embarrassed over this situation and regret having ever taken these photos. I am thankful for the support of my family and friends.” Disney also released a statement: “Vanessa has apologized for what was obviously a lapse in judgment. We hope she’s learned a valuable lesson.”


So I was checking AOL News (daily habit) and I noticed a headline that read "Paris sues over 'That's Hot' card." As I continued reading the article, I learned she made the phrase a trademark and was suing Hallmark Cards for "commercial appropriation of identity, invasion of privacy, misappropriation of publicity, false representation that Hilton endorses the product, and infringement of a federally registered trademark." I immediately got scared that my own blog would be in jeopardy if her people ever found out. SO on that note, if anyone out there EVER reaches Paris and her personnel, know that I only used her phrase because 1) I like it and 2) I believed it would be catchy for this sort of blog - which features the "hottest" news in the entertainment industry. Also, I'd like to add that I will add the Trademark sign to my banner along with Paris' name to avoid any trouble -not that this blog is read by her- but in any case, I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Couple Splits

It's sad when couples, celebrity or not, with very young children split. But according to Us Weekly, Michelle Williams and Heath Ledger, parents of 23-month old Mathilda, "quietly and amicably split a few weeks ago." I hope they remain friendly, for the sake of their child.
I hate to admit, but I'm secretly happy. Now Heath is mine again =P
Just kidding, but I do really love his work, not to mention he's a hottie =)

A Model Life: Finale

Joel Wilkenfeld, Co-President of NEXT, and host Petra Nemcova revealed the girls' future with NEXT. After learning that her pictures were sent to London and approved, Michelle was told she would be leaving for London. Beatrice "Bea," learned she would be heading for Miami where they also liked her photos but it also reminded to respect people onset foremost. Tough girl Anjelika is also told she will not be staying in New York any longer. She will be sent to native California - but without a contract. She is sent home because of her know-it-all attitude. After being dismissed, you see an emotional side to her, previously unknown about her.

Valeria, Lucia and Abigail are informed they will be flying to the Bahamas for a final photo shoot. The shoot turns out to be a little challeging for the girls. For Abigail "Abi," her poses on the rocks are a bit awkward, but then again, who ever said standing on rocks and modeling would be easy? Valeria has trouble opening her eyes enough but there are no real complaints for Lucia "Lucy," except that she needs to learn her angles better, which Joel later discusses with Petra.

Back in New York, the remaining three (right) learn they will ALL get a $100,000 contract with NEXT. Also, Joanna Coles, Editor-in-Chief of Marie Claire, surprises the girls with news of their first editorial fashion spread and commends them for being good role models because they ACTUALLY eat. SWEET DEAL!

By the end of the show, through lots of crying and sadness, they say goodbye to Petra for the meantime, and to eachother before returning home to Australia, Slovakia and the U.K.
