Paris Hilton Sex Tape Download Frenzy

Paris Hilton Sex Tape Download Frenzy
Believe it or not Paris Hilton?s sex romp video is making her ex-boyfriend Rick Solomon a small fortune, thanks to sales through a Czech Republic internet site. Solomon claims that more 50,000 copies of the tape have been sold for US$50 a pop to download the 37-minute sex session, in which he stars with the hotel heiress. He says, “I had tons of shame from this whole thing and now, I’m … at least making some money off it. It’s doing really well.” Solomon admits he’s not worried about comeback from his ex or her family as his get-rich-quick scheme takes off: “I own the rights and they can’t stop me. I haven’t heard a word.” Hope he remembers that when the Hilton lawyers come after him!



Ashton Kutcher

Is Ashton Kutcher really a toy boy?
Demi Moore?s toyboy is being questioned about his age. No he hasn?t been underage drinking or showing his fake ID around Hollywood but Ashton Kutcher?s real age has come into question from several media outlets. Journalists at American tabloid the National Inquirer have alleged the studly toyboy is actually four years older than previously believed. The star claims to have turned 26 on February 7, but National Inquirer journalists insist he’s actually 30. The actor’s representatives insist his listed age as 26 is correct. The reason for lying seem to be unknown but at least if he is 30, his age difference with 41-year-old girlfriend Demi Moore would only be 11 years. Bet that makes a whole lotta difference!



Ben Affleck

Affleck after J.Lo
Ben Affleck has shocked the media yet again! No he hasn?t reunited with Jennifer Lopez but he has done something equally as questionable ? Affleck has blamed the world?s media for his failed engagement to the Latino star. Affleck has accused the press of putting too much pressure on their relationship and causing ?irreparable damage? to their union. Speaking publicly for the first time since the split, Affleck has told Access Hollywood, “The media has kind of evolved to where it’s become so much more competitive in terms of… there’s only so many stories. So naturally, stuff becomes blown out of proportion or exaggerated.” And Affleck assures he won’t be photographed with a new lady on his arm anytime soon, explaining, “It’s a little time of recovery for me.” Boo Hoo Benny! Sorry not a lot of sympathy here!

Madonna offers Advice to J.Lo

Madonna offers advice to J.Lo

Pop diva Madonna thinks J.Lo and Ben Affleck got their just desserts in having to cancel their wedding due to the media attention. Madonna revealed, on US TV show Access Hollywood that, “To a certain extent, they courted the media attention.” Madonna?s advice to Lopez and Affleck included considering a marriage as “a part of the relationship that you keep private.” She said that she’s not judging them, but added, “If you have a strong relationship, a lot of media attention can break it up.” Good advice from the woman that has been in the pubic eye for almost 20 years now and has been happily married to director Guy Ritchie for the last 3 years!



Wolverine turns into Bond

Hugh Jackman has been tipped as the new industry favourite to take over from Pierce Brosnan as the next James Bond. The Aussie hunk will have even more women drooling if he dons the famous superspy tuxedo. The role will be vacated by the devishly handsome Pierce Brosnan after the next Bond installment. The X-Men star is thought to be top of the list of potential replacements. “A list of possible successors has been drawn up, and Hugh is at the top,” said a source at 007 moviemaker Eon. “He’s got everything the producers are looking for — dark good looks, an athletic build, a sense of humour and box-office clout. At 35, he is also the right age.” Bond director Lewis Gilbert said: “You can’t have someone too young playing Bond because they would never be believable in the part.” You can have our vote any day Hugh ? after his latest gig on Broadway maybe he could it be the man with the golden taps shoes?



Legally Blonde has baby number 2

Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe have just welcomed baby number two, a little boy they named Deacon. The pair already have a daughter, Ava who is four years old. Deacon Phillipe was born on October 23, at a LA hospital. “The family is very happy and doing well,” publicist Nanci Ryder said. But now that little Deacon has joined the Witherspoon-Phillippe household, the new parents plan on spending some quality family time together. ?I want to be with my baby and my little girl,” Witherspoon said. “I want some real family time, because I’ve been working a lot over the last two or three years. I love to stay home with my family, to hang out and be a mom and organize my daughter’s life. That feels very natural to me.”



Baby Beatle

Sir Paul McCartney and new wife Heather Mills have confirmed they have become parents of a baby girl named Beatrice. The couple has said they are ecstatic, adding: “She is a little beauty.” The newest little Beatle was born in a north London Hospital and weighed in at a healthy 7lbs. Apparently Sir Paul and Heather knew the sex of the youngster all along and had even chosen her name, proving some stars can keep a secret when they want to.

Surprise Surprise – J.Lo and Affleck postpone wedding

Surprise Surprise – J.Lo and Affleck postpone wedding

Late last week, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, the most talked about couple in the galaxy, announced to the world?s press that they had postponed their much-hyped wedding. The glamour couple pulled the pin on the big day declaring that all the media attention the event had generated would have spoiled their wedding day. Oh poor things! The media machine that they have fueled for that past 18 months has suddenly turned against them? “Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date,” they said in a joint statement. “When we found ourselves seriously contemplating hiring three separate ‘decoy brides’ at three different locations, we realised that something was awry.? No really? “We began to feel that the spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives could be compromised. We felt what should have been a joyful and sacred day could be spoiled for us, our families and our friends,” the couple added.

The couple has assured fans that they are still as close as ever and that the nuptials have merely been postponed – not cancelled altogether. And so the show goes on? There has been much smirking and raised eyebrows about the cancellation of the wedding, many believing the event to be at best, a smokescreen to throw the press pack off the scent of the real wedding story, or at worst, an elaborate publicity stunt. Reports claim some paparazzi paid neighbours up to $50,000 to perch themselves in trees on adjoining properties, but alas, no one scored the big bucks an exclusive snap of the Ben-Jen ceremony.



Is it on or is it off?

Despite heart felt admissions to their fans that they are still indeed a couple, global news agency Reuters, allege that Ben and Jen have split up! At least temporarily, according to anonymous sources. The sources say Affleck called close associates last week to tell them he had split from the singer and actress. On Sunday, US magazine People broke the story, saying Affleck initiated the break-up. And yesterday UK newspaper The Sun quoted a friend of the couple saying “it’s all over” because “Ben got cold feet”.

According to reports out of the US, the pair were seen on Friday in the Los Angeles area boarding planes to different U.S. cities. On Saturday Affleck was spotted gambling and sunning himself ? alone ? at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, while Lopez was caught by a New York Post photographer at Miami’s South Beach the same day. Jenny from the Block seemed happy frolicking with her gal pals in the surf and even stopping to sign autographs for fans. Couldn?t this be all part of the ruse to throw the drooling media hounds off the scent? Las Vegas would be the ultimate destination for a buck?s weekend. And what better place for a weekend of fun and sun with the girls tan Miami? Sound more like a bride and groom letting their hair down before the big day than a couple headed for Splitsville. Or does it? We?ll keep you posted.



Batman goes Psycho?

Holy casting news, boy wonder! Local film pundits have revealed that an American Psycho has been picked to star as Bruce Wayne in a new Batman movie. Christian Bale (America Psycho, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin ) will don the trademarked cape and mask in The Dark Knight a film that will chronicle the early years of the caped crusader, Warner Brothers Pictures announced in the US last week. Christopher Nolan director of the brilliantly twisted psycho-thriller Memento will direct the prequel, which is set to begin filming in early 2004. ?What I see in Christian is the ultimate embodiment of Bruce Wayne. He has exactly the balance of darkness and light that we were looking for,? Nolan said in a statement. Oh, could it be time for us to see a really evil, dark side to the caped crusader?



Gwynnie B?day or Big Day?

Will Madonna be walking down the aisle in front of Gwyneth Paltrow next weekend or be partying at Gwynnie?s birthday bash? Rumour has it that all the cool kids have been told to keep the weekend of September 27th free for her 31st birthday but we suspect that it all might be a cover for Gwynnie?s wedding to Coldplay?s Chris Martin. Adding fuel to the fire are reports that Valentino has sent out six bridesmaid dresses a few weeks ago for the Paltrow/Martin nuptials! The thing that has confused us the most is the news that the dresses are all lavender! Doesn?t sound right for such an uber-cool couple?s wedding does it? Well, at least they?re not “all yellow?” as the song goes…

Ben-Jen Wedding Date Leaked

Ben-Jen wedding date leaked

US Weekly magazine and New York?s Daily News have both quoted unidentified friends of Ben Affleck and J.Lo, revealing that the wedding ? the third for J.Lo and the first for Affleck ? will take place near Santa Barbara, California this coming weekend! Of course a spokesman for the Latino diva Lopez declined to comment on suspected leak. Affleck’s publicist, Ken Sunshine, is keeping his lips zipped too, refusing to comment about any wedding plans.

Neither publication revealed the exact location of the nuptials, but comments from an unidentified source, apparently familiar with the wedding plans, has suggested that the ceremony would take place on a hillside ?maybe at a winery.? It has been speculated that some 400 guests received invitations by phone last week and details will be hand-delivered four days before the event. One of those on the invite list said Santa Barbara is “convenient for a lot of their friends,” according to the report. Wouldn?t want to be in the shoes of J.Lo?s wedding planner when she finds out who leaked the big news to the press!



Big Blue Crush

What did Cameron Diaz ask for her birthday this year? Prada handbag? Gucci frock? Sports car? Nup. A broken nose! The Charlie’s Angel star was hangin? ten in Hawaii on her 31st birthday last Saturday, while on vacation with friends and family. The surfin? safari came to an abrupt halt when the gorgeous star wiped-out off Waikiki beach and was hit in the face by another surfer?s board. Ouch! “I’m fine,” a bandage-sporting Diaz told reporters “But I’m just totally bummed out because I can’t go surfing anymore.” Guess she better just lay on the beach and make all the other holiday-makers jealous of her great bod!



No more Angelina tattoo for Billy Bob

Billy Bob Thornton has finally broken his silence on the demise of his marriage to Angelina Jolie, the sexy Tomb Raider star. The revelations come just in time to promote his new roots-rock CD The Edge of the World. Good timing or just a need to bear his soul to the press? Thornton has largely kept mum since the couple split more than a year ago but now he is finally talking about his former wife and the end of their relationship. “I don’t think either one of us knows why we split up,” he recently told reporters. “It was like, say you’re going to a nightclub one night with your friends and you’re in line and the next thing you know there are guys with helicopters and there’s machine-gun fire and you don’t know what happened. And that’s kind of like what our breakup was like.” Please explain! We know he is ?out there? but what kinda explanation is that?



Thornton also said “that relationship served a purpose in her life and it served a purpose in my life.” Just like the tattoo on his arm that once bore Angelina?s name. “I had it covered up with an angel and it says ‘Peace’ right here. It’s like, basically, my way of saying, ‘No hard feelings.” The kooky rocker says he and Jolie are still mystified as to why their marriage fell apart. Bet AJ is happy that she served a purpose Billy Bob!

Billy Bob gives marital advice

Billy Bob and Angelina divorced in May this year and since BB has now racked up FIVE marriages and divorces, the rocker is well qualified to give marital advice don?t you reckon? Thornton recently spoke to Time Out New York magazine, and he advised first-time brides and grooms on marriage. He suggested they should “go into it with the idea that you want it to last, but don’t put pressure on yourself to try to achieve perfection every day, because I think that’s when you get into trouble.” Marching down the aisle, couples should think, “Like, yeah, I’m doing this forever, but don’t let it freak you out.” Great advice Billy Bob, let?s just hope no newly weds take his advice too seriously!

J.Lo to sue

J.Lo to sue

Looks like Jenny from the Block will be making an appearance in court in the near future ? she?s started legal proceedings against her former manager, Benny Medina. The actress/singer/model/entertainer is seeking millions of dollars in back-commissions claiming her former manager negotiated deals on her behalf without a license. This is a violation of the Californian Talent Agency Act, and if Medina is found guilty, it will void any contracts he negotiated for her and therefore she shouldn?t have had to pay him any commission. Phew!

Medina is not taking this lying down, hitting back at Ms Lopez by issuing the following statement “The accusation that I misappropriated money from Jennifer Lopez is both untrue and offensive… Lopez, by making false allegations against me, is now trying to add me to the long list of people whom she has used and discarded after she took from them all she could get.” He continued, “It is unfortunate that Ms. Lopez is using a Labor Commission suit as a means of mitigating her outstanding financial contractual obligations to my company and me… I look forward to the opportunity to have the world come to know the real Jennifer Lopez. I will defend myself against these lies and will collect from her every dollar for which I am owed.” Lopez is also seeking to dissolve any remaining partnerships with Medina and Handprint Entertainment. Owweee sounds like J.Lo may have bitten off more than she can chew this time!



Ed and Christy expecting?

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes Ed Burns and Christy Turlington with a baby carriage? The gorgeous couple, who wed last month in San Francisco, after an extended courtship are apparently ?with child?. The fab two were spotted at birthing classes in New York. And with a new addition to the family on the horizon, the Burn-Turlington household are no doubt occupied with thoughts of baby names, and suitable godparents for the little one. There?s no shortage of divine celebrities amongst the couple?s inner circle. Their recent nuptials included A-list invitees like Sting and wife Trudi Styler, Vin Diesel and sexy Irish rocker Bono, who reportedly filled in for Turlington?s dad on march down the aisle – her father having passed away from lung cancer two years ago. Wonder if the U2 frontman will be given a guernsey as the baby’s godfather too?



Maguire says Spider-Man 2 ‘better’

Sensational Spider-man Tobey Maguire has reportedly revealed that the forthcoming spidey sequel is ?better? than the original. “I’m really happy with it … It’s going to be better than the first one. The story is a lot better,” he said last week from LA during a press conference for his new film Seabiscuit. Maguire, who shot to fame last year playing the superhero, said filming on the sequel was about two-thirds complete. In the sequel, Maguire’s character, Peter Parker, enrols as a university student, but two new villains, Dr Octopus and the Lizard, are hell bent on his destruction. The next arachnid installment is due to be released in the US in June 2004. Guess that puts pay to those nasty rumours doing the rounds that Maguire wasn?t going to be fit enough to be Spiderman again!



Demi?s boyfriend threatens to sue

BUSTED big time! Ashton Kutcher is threatening to sue the London Evening Standard for making up a quote about how much he likes “f***ing” current girlfriend, and mother of three,Demi Moore. The quote in question went something like this, Moore “was the hottest actress in Hollywood when I was growing up. I was in love with her when I was 10. Now it’s great, I’m (bleeping) her.” But the young star of Dude where?s my car? and That 70?s Show wants the paper to publish a retraction and issue an apology for publishing the fabricated interview in its July 7 issue – or suffer the legal consequences. “If the Evening Standard fails to provide Mr. Kutcher with an appropriate retraction and apology, he will evaluate all of his legal options,” “This is an example of some of the outrageous conduct that is committed by the media,” said publicist Matt Labov. “It is obvious that the Evening Standard wanted to publish attention-getting quotes from Mr. Kutcher about the relationship and, having none, simply made them up.” As if the press ever do that Mr Labov?
