Nick Lachey Tells All to Rolling Stone

In the issue of Rolling Stone Magazine that is currently on newsstands, Nick Lachey really opens up about his relationship with ex Jessica Simpson, his relationship with her family, and how the breakup really happened, among other things. You can read the entire interview online here, but here are some especially interesting quotes from Nick from the interview:

"I'll tell you how I knew my marriage was over: I was told,"

"Jessica and I began playing these parts (on their MTV reality show Newlyweds) even when we were by ourselves. It became a really blurred line. There was a question about what truly was our reality."

"I don't know if there were other men. But if she did cheat, it was the result of something bigger, not the reason we didn't work. ... Sometimes I think it would be easier if I had just walked in the house and found her in bed with a guy. That would be clear-cut. End of story. I wouldn't have to deal with the uncertainty of adultery."

"I don't pretend to understand Joe. ... I don't know if he ever liked me. To this day I couldn't say. It was painful. Do I think Joe drove a rift between us? No. Was he an influence in our marriage? Absolutely."

“It breaks my heart that I couldn’t make Jessica happy. I wanted to be everything to my wife... I’d marry her all over again. Because I still love her. It would be a lot easier to walk away if I didn’t.”

Us Weekly reports that Lachey breaks down into tears six times, consumes four alchoholic beverages, and pledges his love to Jessica twice during the interview.

Melissa and Tammy-Lynn Expecting

Melissa Etheridge and partner Tammy Lynn Michaels are
expecting twins this autumn after Michaels underwent successful artificial insemination procedure.

The couple issued the following statement:
"We are thrilled to announce that Tammy is pregnant, and expecting our twins sometime around this fall. To answer the obvious question: We used an anonymous donor from a bank. These are our first two babies conceived together, but not our first time mothering together. For the past five years, we have been parenting two children from a previous time in Melissa's life. The twins will be a joyful addition to our loving home. We are a blessed family, and ask that no gifts be sent. Any gifts we receive we will donate to a local women's shelter. However, well wishes are more than welcome."

Etheridge's other two children were from a relationship with Julie Cypher. The sperm donor was David Crosby of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. She married Tammy Lynn in September of 2003.

So, in other words, the two children with Cypher have hit the genetic jackpot, while Tammy Lynn's kids may have the genes of a serial killer.

Looks interesting. I miss the shoelace around Flatley's head.

Leo's New Girlfriend

Here are some pictures of Leonardo DiCaprio's new girlfriend, Israeli model Bar Rafaeli. She looks like a younger version of Gisele in my opinion...in other words, absolutely gorgeous.

Whitney Back In Rehab

Whitney Houston is reportedly back in drug rehab a few weeks after sister-in-law Tina Brown went public with photos and an interview to the National Enquirer confirming Houston's addictions. She is allegedly checked into the Sierra Tucson clinic in Tucson, Arizona.

I could say something really snarky here but I honestly just hope Whitney gets better for a long period of time.

More News Tomorrow

I have a bunch of stories ready to post for tomorrow, I'm just waiting a day because I want to hear some comments on the birth of Suri before I push the story down further on the page...anyone?

More Details on the TomKitten

According to People Magazine, which had at least one reporter on binocular watch outside the Beverly Hills home of TomKat, Katie Holmes had an epidural during labor, shooting down the popular rumor that Tom Cruise (and Scientology) would not permit anesthesia during labor. It is believed that Holmes did, however, have a silent birth, which, according to the Church of Scientology's official Website means "labor and delivery done in a calm and loving environment and with no spoken words by everyone attending as much as possible...It is doubtful that any woman could give birth without making any noise at all."
Holme's delivery room happened to be down the hall from Brooke Shields' at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California.
Suri also means "pickpocket" in Japanese, if anyone cares.

The scene outside Cruise's home in Beverly Hills today.


It's a Alien Girl! And a Regular One!

The alien baby has emerged from the womb of Katie Holmes and is now exposed to the rest of the world. Tom Cruise's publicist confirmed today that Holmes gave birth today in Los Angeles (although no details on exactly where yet). The being weighs 7 pounds, 7 ounces and is 20 inches long, for those of you who care about such details - and I know there are those of you out there. It is considered to be female. TomKat has given its offspring the appropriate alien-sounding name of Suri, which means "Princess" in Hebrew (So basically they're proclaiming already that their daughter's a JAP.) and "Red Rose" in Persian. I thought they were Scientologists, what's with all of this foriegn crap? I was banking on Hubbardia for a girl, damnit. Anyway, it's the first child for Holmes, and the first natural one for Cruise, although he has two adopted children with ex Nicole Kidman. Who, I might add, is probably seething right about now.

Strangely, Brooke Shields, who hates Tom Cruise, also gave birth to a baby girl today in Los Angeles. She opted to name her daughter to sound like a French sandwich, calling her Grier Hammond. Weirdly enough, she was also 7 pounds and 20 inches long. It is the second child for Shields and her husband, Chris Henchy, pictured here with their first daughter, Rowan. Too bad no one's going to care about this baby. I hope this doesn't cause Brooke more post-partum depression. Better get those meds ready.


Tom and Katie in GQ

This looks so fake, I'm sorry. I hate the TomKat. Katie always looks so forlorn shopping out by herself in public. She looks like one of those kids that crazy people kidnap and somehow get them to go out with them but they escape to a Denny's or something and manage to tell a waitress what's going on. Go to a Denny's, Katie. Speak.

Jessica and Lindsay Catfight

Us Weekly, Defamer, and Egotastic! have put together the details of the Lindsay Lohan/Jessica Simpson catfight that is on the cover of this week's Us Weekly magazine. On April 6 in Los Angeles bar The Dime at about 1:30 AM, Jessica Simpson joined director Brett Ratner for a round of drinks when Lindsay Lohan entered and sat at a nearby table. After sending over a round of drinks to Ratner and Simpson, Lohan was upset when neither thanked her. According to an eyewitness source, Lindsay went off on Jessica, screaming,

"What's the matter? When your sister is around, you can talk shit about me, but now that Ashlee's not here, what are you going to do? Come on! I'm 19 and you're 25. Say something, you coward!"

At which point Jessica burst into tears and said she was too old for this drama and was so sick of all of it, blah, blah, blah. There are rumors circulating that Lindsay is dating Brett; this might have set her off when she saw Jessica with him. Who knows. Jessica's right; this is just like high school. Except with champagne.

First Britney, Now...

British artist Marc Quinn has created a sculpture of a naked Kate Moss in a yoga position. For those of you who can't wait until 2007 when it comes over to the Mary Boone Gallery in New York City, it's on display now in London. Quinn comments, "She is a contemporary version of the Sphinx. A mystery."

Well, I don't know about the Sphinx, but at least this sculpture doesn't have a crowning head coming out of her vagina.

Mischa's New Bebe Photos

Here's Mischa Barton as the summer 2006 model for Bebe. Everyone's been oohing and aahing over how much of a departure these photos are for Barton in terms of maturity, but honestly, I think they're quite tame.

This Was to be Expected

Paris Hilton walks around LA none-too-subtly clutching (displaying??) a copy of her cover of Elle Magazine to her chest. No one loves Paris as much as Paris. That's a fact.

L-Lo Gets Waxed

Lindsay Lohan's wax figure was unveiled this past week in New York at Madame Tussaud's Wax Theater. The theme of her exhibit was entitled "Bling it On" and featured a huge cell phone as well as a very unflalttering portrait of Lindsay.

Lindsay's figure will be placed right next to the one of Paris Hilton in the section of the museum called "Undeserving Fame Whores."

She's looking at you! Ahhhhh!

Hilary and Chad = Reconciled?

After enduring a trial separation from husband Chad Lowe, Oscar-winner Hilary Swank seems to be sticking to her word that they are working to get things back on track. A source says, "They were sitting next to each other in business class on a flight from New York to Los Angeles - playing chess late into the night and giving each other foot and hand massages."

OK, kind of gross (I have a foot thing, no feet), but cute nonetheless. I really like this couple. I think her fame just kind of was overwhelming for a while. Still, I would be more happy to hear that they were kissing and not playing chess, but you've got to start somewhere.


Here's Brad Pitt sporting a new hairstyle while playing softball with Maddox in Namibia. Reportedly, this is where Angelina Jolie plans to give birth to the Brangelina baby. Last December, Angelina told press that she alone cuts Maddox' mohawk, so she probably cut Brad's as well.

Can I just say...(or ask) What in God's Name has happened to Brad Pitt? I know the answer is probably Angelina Jolie, but has she brainwashed him or something?? He looks like a hobo, and I never thought he was cruel enough to do all that to Jennifer (please, don't argue with me...a 40 page spread pretending to be married to Angelina in GQ is hardly kind). I don't know. Brad just isn't as cool and attractive to me as he used to be.

Maggie Gyllenhaal Expecting

Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, 28, (of "Secretary" fame) and boyfriend Peter Sarsgaard, 35, ("Jarhead") are expecting a baby and are planning to marry, although Sarsgaard's spokesman had no further details as to when the baby is due or when the couple will marry. The couple, together now for four years, met while filming "In God's Hands," a low-budget Steven Soderbergh vehicle that was never released. Here's Maggie shopping with her mother Naomi after lunch with her brother Jake.

Nick Carter is in Hot Water

From Star Magazine:

Backstreet Boys heartthrob Nick Carter, 26, could be in hot water with the authorities, after a young woman complained to police that she was sexually assaulted near midnight on March 27, while she and a female friend were spending the night with Carter and his assistant at the private home of a Carter acquaintance in Key West, Florida.

A Key West newspaper reports that the two women, residents of Waukesha County, Wisconsin, alleged to authorities that they had met Carter through his younger brother Aaron, 18, and claimed that Nick had paid for their trip to Florida. The women returned to Wisconsin on March 28, one day after the alleged assault, and one of the women then complained to local lawmen. The Waukesha County Sheriff's Office are said to be questioning the alleged victim and relaying the information to Key West detectives, who met with local Monroe County prosecutors on April 13 to discuss the investigation.

Carter is denying any wrongdoing. "Any allegation of sexual assault by Mr. Carter is absolutely not true," says Marathon, Fla. lawyer Jay Hershoff, who is representing the singer along with Miami attorney John Sale. "When it is all said and done, there should not be an arrest or an indictment. He [Carter] vehemently denies this." A friend of Carter said the singer, who previously lived in Florida but now makes his home in Los Angeles, had visited Key West after a recent tour.

In July 2004, Carter's name was linked to another abuse claim, when former girlfriend Paris Hilton allegedly told pals that the bruises she was sporting were the result of being hit by her ex. Carter denied the allegations.

Ew. What a scumbag has-been.
