NY Post – Which Pakistani officials, in town for Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari’s meeting at the United Nations, spent $14,000 on lap dances and drinks at a topless bar? The expensive evening came just as President Obama was pledging billions in aid to that country and the United Nations was warning of 800,000 new Pakistani refugees.
StyleList – Which landmark NYC department store is still making its corporate jet available to senior execs for non-company business, despite being in serious financial trouble?
BlindGossip – Here’s the inside scoop on three women with floundering careers. Actually, the word “career” when used in connection with any of the three is debatable, because none of them has a job that requires anything remotely resembling skills. If you ask them, they like to say [Read more…] about Reality Hits Hard for These Three Ladies
NY Daily News – Which D-list rapper got in a hemp, er, heap, of trouble with event sponsors when he lit up a joint at their bash? They couldn’t kick him out because he was the “big” celebrity name of the night, but they didn’t end up paying him.
StyleList – Which aspiring model had an awkward moment when she was introduced to a fashion editor by a trying-to-be-helpful friend? Turns out the editor had already met the young lady at a restaurant when she was on a paid date with an older male companion, and using a different name.
BuzzFoto – This B-ish list actor is dating a nobody – someone he met while she was waiting on him in one way or another. Looks like she must be something special, because they haven’t been dating all that long and he recently paid off a whole bunch of her debt – mostly pay day loans that were making her life a living hell. She is terribly grateful and we think that, whether or not he did it to be nice or to make her feel indebted or whatever, it was a very sweet thing to do.
It’s not Nicolas Cage!
NY Daily News – Which closeted — and married — actor almost had his cover blown when he hit on a straight man in a sauna? Word is the offended dude is now quite wealthy, thanks to a payoff.
BuzzFoto – This pint-sized actress is best known for her TV work, but her movie roles have been hits and we’re pretty sure that she’s on her way to the A-list of the silver screen. Anyway, she has become well-known in Hollywood for sweet ways when it comes to coffee consumption. She’s made a habit of tipping $20 when she buys a cup, and now she’s often paying for the person in line behind her on top of it. What a great way to be!
It’s not Leighton Meester.
MavrixOnline – We’re talking about the ensemble cast of a cable drama series, a series that the network loved right away. It was picked up for a second season, but it doesn’t look like Season 2 will ever be shown (despite already having been written). Why? Because of some BS with the production company.
So, it looks like the 12 episodes are all anyone is going to get (for now, at least). And those 12 episodes have run at least 300 times in the US, not to mention the handful of other countries that are currently running the series. With all of those episodes running all over the place, you’d think that the stars, writers and director would be swimming in royalty checks. Sadly, that isn’t the case. As a result, at least one of the major stars of the show is having his house foreclosed on.
The guy(s) in question had to rely on family and friends (of Dorothy?) to help them through troubling times.
BlindGossip – This A lister owns his own jets, and usually takes them wherever he goes. However, he recently flew on a regular commercial airline to prove to his studio that he is capable of helping them save a few bucks. Seems that after years of setting himself apart from his audience with his luxe life and odd personal choices, he now wants to be seen as a regular guy to whom audiences can relate.
