The residents of Laguna Beach are over MTV’s Laguna Beach. A community meeting was reportedly recently held where concerned residents tried to gather support for the ousting of MTV from their neighborhood. The group blames the reality show for portraying local kids as rich brats and attracting sex preditors to the area. They also call the town’s initial decision to allow the taping of the show a boneheaded move and hope the show will die a natural death.
Despite the assurances from those in-the-know around the blogosphere that the struggling freshman NBC hour “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” was mere hours away from cancellation with its low ratings and extravagant $2 million-per-episode pricetag, the opposite now in fact appears to be true. While not yet official, key industry sources are confident that NBC will, in the next few days, announce the show’s pickup for its back nine episodes (giving it a full season complement of 22) in the wake of two consecutive Mondays of upwardly-trending numbers.
Just in time for Christmas, fashion icon and pop sensation Gwen Stefani will be expanding her Love. Angel. Music. Baby. line to include dolls. Inspired by key looks from her album tour, the limited edition of eight dolls will include interchangeable outfits, posters, accessories and other collectible items. According to Gwen, The Harajuku Girls and I wore such wicked costumes we had to share them with the world again. And make a truck load of money while doing it…
The dolls are now available for pre-order.
Kanye West unleashed an amazing outburst after failing to take home the gong for ‘Best Video’ for his ‘Touch The Sky’ promo at the EMAs.
Crashing the stage as winners Justice and Simian collected their silverwear for ‘We Are Your Friends’, the hip hop star spat, “F*ck dis! (My video) cost a million dollars, Pamela Anderson was in it, I was jumping across canyons and sh*t! If I don’t win, the awards show loses credibility. Nothing against you (J&S), but hell man.”
“I haven’t seen (the Justice and Simian video). Possibly it could have been quite good but no way better than ‘Touch The Sky’.
“That is complete bullsh*t, I paid a million. Obviously it’s not all about the money, but the response it got transcended everything, it really made great TV.
“It took a month to film; I stood on a mountain; I flew a heliocopter over Vegas. I did it to be the king of all videos and I wanted to walk home with that award.”
Justin Timberlake, who was hosting the show, responded to the outburst with, “After the show, Kanye will be in the parking lot accepting awards he did not win. Seriously though, I’ve got sexy covered, it’s good to see someone’s doing crazy.”
Here we go: despite receiving an order for three more episodes on Friday, the Aaron Sorkin NBC drama “Studio 60 on Sunset Strip” is about to be put out of its misery.
Cast members are already confiding in friends that the end is near. It’s likely NBC will pull the plug shortly I am told by insiders.
Last week, Studio 60 had 7.7 million viewers. Compare that with competing “CSI: Miami,” with 17.5 million. That gap cannot be closed.
But ‘Studio 60′ has trouble internally at NBC, forget its intramural rivals. According to ratings stats, the “Saturday Night Live” behind the scenes soap opera loses almost half the viewers delivered to it a few minutes earlier by another new show, “Heroes,” which has become a surprise cult hit.
Tara Reid, one time actress and now a recovering professional party-goer, is insisting that things would be totally different had she married the self-proclaimed love of her life, Carson Daly. Tara recently confessed in a TV interview, “I think, ‘Well yeah, if I would have married Carson, I’d probably have kids by now… I wouldn’t have had all that crazy partying. My life would have been completely different.’” Or not…

Lindsay Lohan hasn’t even moved into her multimillion-dollar pad in the tony West Hollywood condo community of Sierra Towers, but her future neighbors are already complaining — loudly — about her presence in the quiet building.
“We’ve always had celebrity residents, but all of them either lead quieter lives or are barely ever here,” one resident tells LifeandStylemag.com. “Everyone thinks she’ll be having parties, and I’m sure she will. Beyond the noise factor, it’s a security issue. Look at the type of and number of people she hangs out with. We don’t want them roaming the building.”
There are 21 pictures of Lindsay, looking all ready for Halloween — probably unintentionally — at an XBox 360 promotional party after the jump. So click the link to…
Cindy Crawford, remember her? Well now you can win a date with her … and by “win”, they mean bid, and by “date” they mean a meet and
greet makeover. However they package this marketing ploy, if you have the cash you and a friend can hang with Cindy in New York when she announces her partnership with Remington grooming products.
Feeling guilty about bidding? Don’t worry, all of the proceeds will benefit charity. And when you remember that a charity lunch date with Jessica Biel fetched $30,000, Cindy’s current $7,600 leading bid makes this look like a bargain basement deal.
