Sly Stone Is Living In A Van Down By The River

Ok, so maybe Sly Stone isn’t exactly “down by the river” – he’s currently in Los Angeles – but you get the point. Once upon a time, when Sly and The Family Stone were at the top of their game, Sly Stone lived in a 5,432 square foot mansion in Bel Air. It was decorated in a funky over-the-top black, white and red color scheme (right up my alley!); there were Tiffany lamps in every room, and groovy shag carpeting. He even had a round water bed in the master bedroom. Sly threw elaborate parties with a variety of stars in attendance, including Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix,...

Ted Haggard And Gary Busey Are Swaping Wives For TV

Wow, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but what is television coming to? First teen-bride Courtney Stodden is given a reality show, and now we’re finding out that disgraced Christian pastor Ted Haggard and crazy-to-the-hilt Gary Busey are going to appear on a celebrity version of Wife Swap. Yes, really. ABC has confirmed that Haggard and Busey will trade marital partners on the first season of “Celebrity Wife Swap”; however, no premiere date has been set. Ted Haggard, you’ll recall, fell from Christian evangelical grace in 2006 after it was alleged that he not only...

Courtney Stodden And Her Old-Man Husband Are Coming To TV

Courtney Stodden, the 17-year-old bride of 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchinson, just inked a deal with Merv Griffin Entertainment to produce her own reality TV series. This is happening, folks. It really is. Perhaps it’s time to start building that bomb shelter; the world could very well be coming to an end. This past June, Courtney told Radar Online how excited she was for this next chapter in her life. “We are so excited to be working with Roy Bank, a great professional in this business. We are proud that we were able to find the perfect producer for our reality show and...

Dancing With The Stars Results – Metta World Peace Has Left The Dance Floor

Either the voters on Dancing With The Stars are anti-Peace, or Ron Artest just plain sucked. The dance floor, apparently, is not as kind to the Lakers star as the basketball court is. After receiving the lowest score on the Monday night premiere of DWTS, Ron Artest and his newcomer-to-the-show pro-dancing partner Peta Murgatroyd were eliminated from the competition on Tuesday. Not a huge surprise considering after their rendition of the Cha-Cha, judge Len Goodman called it “atrocious”. Rounding out the three couples on the chopping block were Nancy Grace and her partner,...

R.E.M Has Broken Up. And I Feel Fine.

Enter your own “It’s The End of The World” cliché here — (It’s been overdone so I’m not going to do it; but yes, R.E.M has called an end to their world). The band took to their website to announce the split: “To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening.” R.E.M. First arriving on the music scene...

Comedy Central Charlie Sheen Roast – Video Highlights

They had been threatening it for a while, and they finally followed through. Comedy Central roasted Charlie Sheen on Monday – the same night as the much-hyped Two and a Half Men premiere on CBS. As with most roasts, there were some really hilarious moments, and some really “uh, did they just say that” moments (I’m talking to you Amy Schumer). But all in all, I would say the roast of Charlie Sheen was a success. After all, roasts are meant to be racy and uncomfortable at times. Roasts give us permission to laugh wholeheartedly at an absolutely inappropriate joke; the...

‘Moneyball’ Movie Premiere With Brad Pitt At Oakland’s Paramount Theatre

Oh my goodness, where do I even begin?? The world premiere of Moneyball starring Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, and Philip Seymour Hoffman was this evening at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, CA; and while I decided against plunking down $100 to watch the movie (yeah, I’m cheap; what of it?), I did make it to the “green carpet” beforehand. It.Was.Awesome. Brad Pitt was literally two feet away from me. I kid you not. Here’s proof….. That’s my hand, so yeah…..I’m TOTALLY in a picture with Mr. Pitt. Jealous, much? Here’s even better proof (if you can handle the annoying...
