Nicole Richie has been seen out with toned legs, suggesting she's been eating a little bit and using the leg press at the gym. She's also been photographed with two different mystery guys, one semi-hot and one weird.
Now comes news that she got wasted at a party with an out of control Mary-Kate Olsen and proceeded to puke all over the floor. Nicole didn't miss a step, though, and continued right on as if nothing had happened.
But the real action was happening inside the Sunset Boulevard club, where, sources say, Nicole Richie was getting into the party spirit with her spirit of choice: Tequila! "She was so wasted!" said an attendant, who also said that Ms. Richie's drinking partner, Mary-Kate Olsen, was not doing anything to help the situation. "She was dancing on the tables and then she started giving lap dances to her friends and random guys, too."
And then it happened, under the copper ceiling, amidst the hanging candles. "Nicole puked right on the floor, like right in the middle of the club," said the source. "Everyone saw! But I guess she didn't care. She kept partying."
"She loves tequila," said the source, a friend of Ms. Richie's. "But you know, she's so small—and she probably didn't eat anything that day. So you know, she probably had a couple shots and it just happened. She was just having a good time."
At least have the decency to go into the bathroom to puke. The few times in college I drank to the point of no return I somehow managed to make it into the bathroom in time. Of course I had more body tissue to absorb all that booze. Nicole probably has the alcohol tolerance of a child. (I was going to say toddler, but thought that sounded sick.)
Here is lovely Ms. Skin 'n Bones filming a segment with Tyra Banks for her talkshow. Commenters on JJB note that her head looks huge and it seems to be "carrying all 80 pounds of her," that she's "gonna have so many health problems in a few years," and that "she's already bald." What with drinking so much and not eating, it's not much of a stretch to think she'll have health problems. At least she gained a smidgeon of weight.
Kate Moss and Pete Doherty are back together, at least for now. I haven't kept up with troubled Pete like I should, but he had a chemical implant put in his stomach to help him kick heroin and was said to have tried to go to rehab again for like the tenth time.
Kate and Pete arrived at the Rhythm Festival in Kate's chauffeur-driven Range Rover.
A source told the Daily Mirror: "They got out of the car and held hands as they walked to the VIP area - laughing and touching each other the whole time.
"They were acting like a couple of honeymooners.
"They were kissing passionately and didn't leave each other's side all night."
The pair apparently joined singer Jerry Lewis backstage afterwards.
Crack and heroin addict Pete has just come out of rehab and has had a new implant fitted.
He originally got together with Kate almost 18 months ago at her 31st birthday party but they split up late last year after Kate checked into rehab following cocaine allegations.
Kate has plenty of substance abuse problems on her own. While she may have kicked the hard stuff, she still knows how to drink like a fish. She royally pissed off her friend, Jade Jagger, by getting wasted and running up a nearly $10,000 hotel bill in Amsterdam. She stuck her surprised hosts, The Rolilng Stones, with the tab. She offered to pay after leaving the country, but the damage was already done.
"Kate is not the Stones' favourite person right now. She was invited as their guest and while they were expecting to pick up the cost of the room, they were not impressed at the amount she ran up on drinks and food. Her behaviour was also very strange. She was unsteady on her feet and was clearly drunk and had to be taken up to her room."
[Thanks to Random Human for the tip]
Guess Kate and Pete kind of deserve each other.
Kate wasn't with Pete in these pictures taken at the wedding of Primal Scream star Bobbie Gillespie on 7/29. She seems to have brought a long-haired bearded guy as her date, or that might just be someone she's hanging out with at the party.
Update I just have to mention that this is the fourth time I've been able to use that "reunited" header picture! lol
Tara Reid squeezed some hapless bearded man in between her ankles while out for a swim. She might have been on vacation from her life of drinking and showing up at events, but it was probably just a day at the beach since she was seen at an X-Games kickoff party on 8/2.
With Mel Gibson getting heat over those anti-Semitic comments, some foes are adding fuel to the fire by reminding people about the “Passion of the Christ” director’s anti-gay comments in 1992. When Spanish newspaper El Pais asked Gibson about homosexuals, he shot back: “They take it up the [bleep].” Then pointing at his behind, he said, “This is only for taking a [bleep].” He told the reporter that he was once worried that if he became an actor, people would think he was gay. “But with this look, who’s going to think I’m gay?” he asked. “It would be hard to take me for someone like that. Do I sound like a homosexual? Do I talk like them? Do I move like them?” After some people were offended by his comments, Playboy asked him if he would apologize. “I’ll apologize when hell freezes over,” he said.
He really must hate himself most of all for ruining his posh lifestyle making obscure vanity films.
People are pointing out that if Roman Polanski violated a 13 year-old girl and got his career back after fleeing the country, Mel can too. It took Polanski over twenty years. In Mel's case, he can probably put his extreme bigotry behind him in about ten.
Maybe he should just invest his money or go into real estate development.
Everyone was saying that Mel Gibson's career was over after he was caught defaming Jewish people during a DUI arrest. It was assumed that he would go on some sort of unspoken industry black list.
It's gone beyond passive-agressive whispers and shunning. People are so pissed that they're calling for an all-out boycott of Mel:
The damage to Gibson's career could be considerable. A-list talent rep Ari Emanuel, a co-founder of the top-tier Endeavor agency, set Tinseltown tongues wagging with his bold call to action on The Huffington Post blog.
"The entertainment industry can't stand idly by and allow Mel Gibson to get away with such tragically inflammatory statements," Emanuel wrote.
"People in the entertainment community, whether Jew or gentile, need to demonstrate that they understand how much is at stake in this by professionally shunning Mel Gibson and refusing to work with him," said Emanuel.
The arresting officer, a Jewish guy with 17 years on the force, is contrite about the whole episode, and insists that he doesn't want to ruin Mel's career. Mel did that all on his own.
Meanwhile those stupid women on "The View" are trying to remain relevant by saying that they don't want to see any more Mel Gibson movies. Countless people undoubtedly agree with them.
Gibson has checked himself into rehab in an effort to do damage control, but the damage is extensive and it's already done. He's richer than sin, and unless Opus Dei has taken all his cash he should sit back and enjoy his millions while waiting for this to pass. Maybe he should get some sensitivity training, too.
Now that the news is out that Mel is a royal jerk, the LA County Sheriff's department figured they may as well release his mug shot. The long beard is gone and he doesn't look half bad for a drunken bigot.
It's a shame there's no Nick Nolte style mug shot to include with this story, but uber-religious Catholic cult member Mel Gibson was arrested for drunk driving on Friday after supposedly being sober for years. He had a bottle of tequila in his car, and said it wasn't his but he'd "had a little bit" (that's classic!)
TMZ also has details of a police cover-up to remove inflammatory details from the original report. When he was first arrested, Mel Gibson went off on Jews, saying they were responsible for all the wars in the world, and told the arresting officer repeatedly that he was going to "fuck" him. He also tried to run away when the cop did him a courtesy by not cuffing him.
Once inside the car, a source directly connected with the case says Gibson began banging himself against the seat. The report says Gibson told the deputy, "You mother f****r. I'm going to f*** you." The report also says "Gibson almost continually [sic] threatened me saying he 'owns Malibu' and will spend all of his money to 'get even' with me."
The report says Gibson then launched into a barrage of anti-Semitic statements: "F*****g Jews... The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world." Gibson then asked the deputy, "Are you a Jew?..."
Gibson was put in a cell with handcuffs on. He said he needed to urinate, and after a few minutes tried manipulating his hands to unzip his pants. Sources say Deputy Mee thought Gibson was going to urinate on the floor of the booking cell and asked someone to take Gibson to the bathroom.
Gibson was obviously distraught over the illegal unprovoked war on Lebanon that's killed countless innocent civilians. Israel is responsible for a high percentage of wars, but then again so are the Americans. There's that whole imprisoning an entire country thing that Israel's doing, too. It's not the Jewish or American peoples' fault, though, just their terrible leaders.
Mel Gibson is a member of the Catholic cult, Opus Dei, which tried to escape the terrible image it was given in the Da Vinci Code, and calls their portrayal inaccurate:
In The Da Vinci Code, Opus Dei members are falsely depicted murdering, lying, drugging people, and otherwise acting unethically, thinking that it is justified for the sake of God, the Church, or Opus Dei.
The only other famous person I've heard of who was a member of Opus Dei was FBI spy Robert Hanssen, who rigged up a secret room in order to let his best friend watch while he had sex with his wife.
Gibson has since apologized for his behavior, saying that he "acted like a person completely out of control," that he "said things that I do not believe to be true and which are despicable," and that he was "deeply ashamed."
It's too late for Gibson, because everyone's suspicions about him have been confirmed. Now that their highest profile member has been exposed for the jerk he is, Opus Dei is going to have even more problems with their image. Mel Gibson's going to have quite a hard time making his weird religious movies too.
Pete Doherty got up to all sorts of his usual trouble this week. When he flew into Sweden last weekend for some scheduled performances with his band, Babyshambles, he was so out of it he had to use a wheelchair to reach customs. The Swedish authorities were reluctant to retain him, but after he got out of the wheelchair and rolled around on the floor they were forced to do something and decided to search his luggage.
Due to Pete's delay at the border, his band Babyshambles went on an hour late for their performance at the Hultsfred Festival in southern Sweden. The police there were suspicious of Pete's drunken behavior and decided to test his blood for drugs. They found traces of cocaine and a mild tranquilizer, benzodiazepine, which Doherty says he has a prescription for. He was fined $1,900 and released.
At least he seems to be off heroin for a few hours. He was in a rehab clinic in Portugal at the beginning of the month, and his lawyer said treatment was "going well." In Pete's case that means he didn't bust up the place yet.
Doherty later got kicked out of the Debaser club in Stokholm in the middle of a "messy" and drunken performance. A girl was said to be freaking out after she stepped on some broken glass. Doherty was trying to handle the situation by "lashing out at people" and got booted from the club.
Doherty also plans to record a solo album this summer. We bet it has more do with the fact that his bandmates are fed up with him than trying to establish himself as a solo artist.
Doherty's frequent clashes with authorities may fuel his creative endeavors. He just announced that he's publishing his diaires that span back years:
The book, including poems, drawings and lyrics, will cover the star's time with The Libertines, his relationship with model Kate Moss and his drug addiction.
"Some of it is very funny, some of it is pretty dark. All of it is incredibly readable," said Ian Preece, Orion Books commissioning editor.
Doherty was due to give a poetry reading at a publishing launch in a London pub, but failed to turn up.
"The diaries stretch right back to Pete's early years," said Mr Preece.
"It is intimate and honest stuff and a complete antidote to a lot of what you might have read about him."
In a statement, Doherty said: "I've always wanted to have a book published and it's all very exciting for me personally."
Even if it's total crap and as random and unreadable as Macaulay Culkin's "book," you know people will buy it.
Meanwhile Doherty's ex, Kate Moss, has wisely decided not to publish her memoirs. She was paid a £1million advance by Virgin books to write an autobiography about her cocaine abuse. She decided against it, and is wisely keeping that part of her past private. Moss was embroiled in a scandal in September of last year after a videotape was released of her snorting lines backstage at a Babyshambles concert. She was dropped from modeling campaigns with Chanel and Burberry at the time, but has since landed new lucrative contracts as the face of Nikon and Calvin Klein.

JEWEL has apparently gone from clean-living songbird to Robitussin-swilling lush. The Alaskan hottie, 32, reveals she recently started hitting the happy juice - and is loving every minute of her drunken bliss. "I didn't start drinking until I was 30," Jewel tells Blender. "I grew up singing for alcoholics, and it never really seemed like alcohol fixed anything. I was afraid that it would get me. Around 30, I kind of realized that alcohol really does solve all your problems. Whoever said drinking doesn't help lied. You live and you learn."
Maybe Jewel is drinking high quality vodka or taking that active charcoal stuff that prevents hangovers, because drinking a lot is really counter productive in our extensive experience.
Also, it's weird that The Post says Jewel drinks Robitussin because all she said was that she enjoys alcohol. She was probably joking and so is The Post, but she must be drinking a lot or why would she joke like that?
Here is Jewel shooting her new video "Good Day" [via] She is shown with her boyfriend of 7 years, Ty Murray, called the "king of the cowboys."
Britney Spears' 'manny' is a party animal who boozed away his promising Navy career and has no experience with kids, says his mum. Handsome Perry Taylor, 28, has been at Britney's side for the past three weeks, changing Sean Preston's nappies and pushing his stroller. Perry has even been labelled 'Britney's stand-in husband' amid her latest bust-up with Kevin Federline. Photos from his youth show the yong man patying with Lacrosse mates at The Hill School in Pennsylvannia and even kissing girls on the beach at the tender age of three on a family holiday! The young Perry loved hanging out with his pals and having fun, says his devoted mother Caroline. And on the day he graduated he even posed for a cheeky picture with a neighbor's daughter on his knee. But the former Naval cadet's mom Caroline, 61, has told how her son would prefer to be dodging bullets than photographers. Perry's first choice was to join the US Navy and become a Navy SEAL - the highly-trained elite special forces squad. But too many drunken nights out cost him his dream. Ms Taylor, a former air hostess who lives in Washington DC, said: "While you are in the Naval Academy you are supposed to do things their way. But Perry was not one of those. Only 15 out of 1,000 students get chosen to make it to become officers. That is one reason Perry didn't get chosen to be a SEAL. I could tell you he didn't make it because he wasn't the greatest swimmer, but I will tell you why - he was partying. "We are talking about guys going out and coming back in drunk on a Saturday night, that kind of thing. The things you can do in any other type of life but not the Navy.
Perry may have been a drinker like a lot of young people, but he's still ten times better than K-Fed, whose only brush with responsibility was working as a back up dancer and trying to start a career in a field he's completely inadequate in.
Britney and K-Fed were photographed together for the first time in weeks. K-Fed looked tired and uncomfortable with his family, in contrast to the calm and slightly bemused look that Perry Taylor sports when he's helping Britney with Sean Preston, which isn't even in his job description. Perry seems like a stand up guy with a regular past that isn't too embarassing.
Here are Perry's family pictures, which are a bit blurry and not terribly interesting, but you might want to see them. Thanks to BritneySpears.nu for the story and pictures.
Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson, The O.C.'s onscreen and real life couple, have been going their separate ways lately. Bilson has been photographed drunk and out on the town with girlfriends, and Brody was seen looking scruffy at the Sasquatch music festival in Washington state.
Of course couples don't have to hang out together constantly, but Brody is looking pretty depressed and scruffy while Bilson is drunk. It seems like something's going on.
Here's Brody playing drums at the Sasquatch festival on 5/29 [via], and Bilson out at Shag in Hollywood on May 29th. [via] She is also seen drunk. [via]
And here's Rachel Bilson's "Stuff Magazine" photoshoot:
British tabloid News of the World has pictures of a wasted George Michael at the wheel of his car. They were taken just after the troubled singer had to be woken up after blocking traffic for several minutes at a light. When he did get going again, he weaved all over the road and drove over the median:
On Thursday night the gay star went cruising near his home and dozed off at traffic lights in Highgate, north London.
They changed FOUR TIMES before he was woken with a start by a driver tapping on the window.
"He was sweating heavily and had his iPod on," said the driver. "That's probably why he didn't hear all the angry tooting behind him. He got going again—but was weaving all over the place. Then he hit a bollard. I doubt he even noticed it. He looked wasted. He just drove on."
Stavros Niarchos showed up drunk at Paris Hilton's house at 1:00 am on Monday morning begging her to take him back:
The photographers who were camped outside her house tell TMZ that Stavros arrived around 1a.m. and spent an hour crying and ringing her door bell, begging to be let in. At one point, Stavros was spotted sprawled out on her driveway.
Around 2 am Paris finally let him in and the screaming continued. We are told they were so loud the fight could be heard outside the house. Stavros was heard hollering "Take me back!" and "I give you everything!!" Sources say during the fight Matt Leinart's name was brought up a few times.
We are also told Paris was overheard trying to calm down the rich Greek by saying "Take it easy" and "Go home and get some sleep."
During the night, a cab came and went three times, but each time left without the shipping heir. Finally, around 8 in the morning, Stavros got in a cab and headed out.
The plot thickens as Paris and Stavros were seen out Wednesday night together and sources tell us the two wound up spending the night at her house, leaving us to wonder are they apart... or not?
Paris was at Matt Leinart's draft party on Tuesday so that means she was with her new guy one night, and her old one the next.
Kelly Osbourne has been to rehab twice: in the spring of 2004 when her parents confronted her for abusing painkillers and again in the summer of last year after she was said to have fallen back into old habits.
That's why it's a little disconcerting to see the newly slender and on-her-own reality star looking really wasted. Kelly, you should know better!
Jada Pinkett Smith said she was a coked-out slut when she met Will Smith ten years ago and that he saved her from a life of debauchery. Well, that's not exactly what she said, we're inferring. It was pretty close, though:
She explains, "Will saved my life. I was literally killing myself when we started dating ten years ago.
"I was doing drugs, drinking alcohol and sleeping around."
The actress has been touring with her heavy metal band Wicked Wisdom, but steers clear of the rock 'n' roll lifestyle.
She is now on the straight and narrow, but still admits her life isn't perfect: "I'm no different from any other woman. I have the same insecurities and issues."
Jada, it's called college and that's what everyone does. You're supposed to move on and not talk about it except to reminisce about how great it was.
Jada has been raising eyebrows with the rock and roll look she's sporting. She's the lead singer for heavy metal band, Wisdom. On anyone else this outfit would seem forced, but on Jada it looks rather fitting.
The wild threesome, all said to be "firm friends", have all recently weathered very public drug scandals and hope a break away will help them overcome their problems.
Supermodel Kate, 32, checked into rehab last year after pictures of her using cocaine use were published, while rocker Courtney spent a month under house arrest for drug charges in early 2006.
Lindsay, 19, admitted to drug abuse and "emotional wreckage" in a frank interview with 'Vanity Fair' in February.
A source close to the 'Mean Girls' star says Kate has "adopted" Lindsay, while Kate in turn seems to be under the watchful eye of the newly clean Courtney, who also recently declared her intention to help Kate's on/off boyfriend Pete Doherty get off drugs.
A source told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "Courtney is determined to be a calming influence on Lindsay who has had a really tough time of things, and she also adores Kate."
The trio may be celebrating Moss' recent triumph over the drug scandal she suffered when a video was released last year of her snorting cocaine. All criminal charges against Moss are expected to be dropped and she should have no criminal record. Moss wisely did not admit to any wrongdoing when questioned by police.
Diners in the 30-seat restaurant observed Martin exit the BYOB joint to pick up several bottles of the Irish stout Guinness at a nearby deli. And they were surprised when Paltrow, who is five months pregnant with the couple's second child, drank one herself.
Paltrow is famous for her rigorous macrobiotic diet, although she altered it the last time she was pregnant, with her daughter, Apple. Some experts recommend a little Guinness for expecting mothers, because of the brew's high iron content.
Her rep confirmed she drank the alcoholic beverage, but said she ate only cooked food, not sushi.
When I was pregnant I would go out for California rolls because they have no raw fish, but are still tasty if you crave some sushi. I never - ever - had a sip of alcohol though. That's obnoxious and Gwyneth should know better. What a dumb bitch she is.
It's actually seven hours later than EST here in Switzerland. (Usually it's 6 hours later, but we have daylight savings times a week earlier.) After a full day of digging up the early morning gossip dirt I stepped out for a little fresh air and decided to make dinner. Then I came back after a relatively long time away from the computer and look - someone published the pictures of Witney's crack den! Damn, I would have been all over that.
Anyway, better late that never, and I'm sure you've seen these already but I need to add them to Celebitchy for posterity.
Tina, 42, knows Whitney's drug habits well. A recovering addict herself, she and her sister-in-law were "drug buddies" for many months.
She confesses: "I did crack with Whitney. The truth needs to come out. She won't stay off the drugs. It's every single day. It's so ugly. Everyone is so scared she's going to O.D."
In the most explosive interview ever about Whitney, Tina tells how the 42-year-old singer spends days locked in her bedroom amid piles of garbage smoking crack, using sex toys to satisfy herself and ignoring personal hygiene.
The sex toys are the best part. Anyway here are the pictures. again. Thanks to popbytes for the cover image.
Tara Reid was seen out in LA this weekend heading to a club with a new guy. No one at the JJB bulletin board where I found the picture knew who he was, so his identity will remain a mystery for an hour or two until an eagle-eyed blogger identifies him.
It's all Simon Cowell's fault that Abdul blathers about fortune cookies and melons on American Idol:
Paula says, “He’s worse than ever. If they say, ‘Paula is going crazy,’ the reason is Simon is whispering things in my ear, like, ‘What’s the price of beans?’ Things that make no sense at all,” she tells In Touch Weekly
"Paula was being very difficult. (She was) crying all the time and arriving late for meetings." The stress from the situation drove Abdul seek medical attention and she was treated for "exhaustion and dehydration". According to the source, executives from the show discussed replacing the troubled judge: "(They) liked Jessica (Simpson) a lot. And some were pushing for Britney (Spears)." Neither star ended up meeting with Idol producers and they decided to keep Abdul - for now.
Abdul must have been a total mess if Simpson or Spears seemed like a more coherent alternative. We think the most likely reason for Abdul's retention is that her lawyers pointed out her contract to Idol producers. Rather than invite another scandal, they kept Abdul on. It will be surprising if she gets another season on the top-rated show.
Here is Abdul looking glassy-eyed with support from Laura Flynn Boyle at the Jennifer Nicholson fashion show in LA yesterday.
A wasted Tara Reid was leaving Dennis Rodman's Newport Beach House on Wednesday morning when she drove her car into another vehicle. She then made a wise move by giving the driver a wad of cash instead of involving the authorities:
According to our eyewitness, Ms. Reid's "pupils were clearly dialated, fow what reason I don't know." After exiting their respective vehicles, Tara told the owner of the other vehicle that she "didn't want to deal with insurance," and promptly handed the gentleman $700 dollars to "forget it ever happened."
Christina Aguilera has obviously had a few as she is helped to her car by her new husband Jordan Bratman outside of a London nightclub on 3/7. She was celebrating a friend's birthday at a South Kensington club called Boujis. [via]
Christina's husband has been credited as the influence for her new non-"dirrty" look. She may be married with a makeover but she's still hitting the sauce.
