This A list comedian with A+ name recognition apparently can’t be bothered with parking meters or valets or parking garages. Instead he seems to get some kind of perverse thrill of accumulating as many parking tickets as he can. He always pays his tickets, but just hates looking around for a parking spot or finding change for meters. Thus he parks his car where he wants for as long as he wants. Total amount of money spent on parking tickets last year? About $40,000. That total includes his auto being towed on average of about once a month when he parked in a fire zone. It also averages out to about one parking ticket per day for an entire year.
Which two female entertainers are actually competing to see who can weigh the least? They are both looking scary skinny, but lie about the reasons why. They say that they never diet, or that they are into fitness, or that they are naturally thin, or that they find it difficult to keep weight on because they are working so hard. Not true. Food is never near their mouths unless someone films them. They are both publicity hounds, and absolutely love all the attention a shrinking body brings, including magazine covers. The girls compare weight on a daily basis. They are actually competing to see who can weigh the least. As long as their weight keeps them in the news, expect the madness to continue. bg
Which singer is terrified that her ex has intimate cell phone photos of her in bed? Mind you, she’s hardly an angel herself as she has some similar shots of him.
EW – If a certain television star is reading this, they should squint extra hard to read between the lines. How come? They’ve been canned – they just don’t know it yet! Yep, it seems an original cast member of a hit series that’s popular has been pink-slipped from their job without the benefit of being given a pink slip. A combo platter of budget cuts and creative redirection is being blamed for the firing, but it also bears mentioning that said performer was never going to win any popularity contests with their co-stars. As for why the MVP still hasn’t been told that the unemployment line is reserving a spot for them, well, that’s where things get really interesting. There’s still a snowball’s chance in Hollywood that the producers might have a change of heart. If, or when, the axe does fall, the regular’s on-screen alter ego isn’t likely to be killed off. Although death has cast a shadow over many a plot, this personality’s demise would probably be deemed too morbid, even for this show.
This former A list R&B female singer was a really big thing back in the day. Well after she stopped performing so much she gained weight. Well, more than a few pounds actually. So, when she finally came back and did a new CD, she was a little concerned about the photo on the cover of it. The record label offered to airbrush the photo and make her look as skinny as she wanted to be. Well, she said no, and that she would just go ahead and get some photos taken on her own. A few weeks later the label got some photos of her in the mail. They were great photos. The problem was they had all been taken fifteen years and fifty pounds earlier. She insisted that the photos were taken all in the past week or so and those were the ones she wanted on the cover of the CD. With no choice in the matter, the label did as she said. Then she also decided that she couldn’t do any concerts because if she did, people would see she looked nothing like the cover photo, so she did no promotion for the CD at all.

She’s gone from sweet as pie to a hot mess! This former American beauty gets “so drunk and out of control it’s disgusting,” a security guard says. “Two years ago, I got a limo from a friend’s company to take her to an event, and she threw up all over the car.

CDAN – This married NBA All Star took a little time away from the family this weekend to play his own version of Santa Claus. No, this isn’t a kindness. Apparently he and one of his long time friends got a suite this weekend and invited a gaggle of strippers. Our basketball player dressed as Santa, minus the pants and invited each of the strippers to sit on his lap. Yep. Each one got a turn with Santa and then his friend who didn’t dress up. Seems kind of a waste of a good theme. Anyway, the strippers stayed for several hours until Santa and his friend were completely satisfied and finished spreading their holiday joy. Then Santa went back home to the wife and kid/kids to spend some quality time with the family.
So the truth about Tina Fey’s scar is that a stranger slashed her face while she was in her front yard when she was just five years old. No wonder she doesn’t like to talk about how it happened. This other celeb, on the other hand, loves to talk about how he got his scar. His story has changed a couple of times, but it’s usually about him being macho. Too bad he’s not telling the truth. The truth, according to a close relative, is that he tripped and fell when he was drunk one night. Not exactly macho. bg
PopBitch – Which A&R drank so much in his hotel bar at In The City that he was refused service and taken to his room?

Editor’s Note: A&R stands for Artists and Repertoire, the talent division of a record label. In The City is a yearly festival and music industry conference in England.
Daily Mirror – Which model is enjoying a little bit too much of the high life? Her ability to rack up endless lines of coke is playing havoc with her appearance – and she’s becoming a little too reliant on the airbrush.
Holy Moly – Which young actor is hungrily hoovering up as much coke as he can get his hands on? He thinks it’s a kind of magic, but unfortunately one that gives him a two-day bout of depression and makes him shout utter bollocks at strangers for hours. Oh, and he also likes to pull rabbits out of men’s bottoms rather than a lady’s mary.

BlindGossip – Which celebrity had himself circumcised after his mother died? Tradition in his family dictated that he be circumcised at birth.
