Aubrey O'Day: Still Around, Starring in Reality Show

If Mario Lopez has taught us anything, it's that a star athlete really can letter in every single high school sport - and that any random celebrity with an uninteresting life can sign a deal to star in their own reality show.

Following Mario's lead, Aubrey O'Day has lowered the bar even further!

The former Danity Kane lead singer and attention whore, who we last heard from in 2009, will star on her own show on Oxygen, The Aubrey O'Day Project.

According to Perez Hilton, the show will follow Aubrey as she desperately tries to find her way back into the music industry while "working with a dedicated team of industry professionals." By professionals, they likely mean porn producers.


The Aubrey O'Day Project: Must-see TV in the making.

Amy Introcaso-Davis, Senior VP of Original Programming and Development over at Oxygen, has high hopes for this riveting new show, saying:

"Young women have watched the ups and downs of Aubrey through the years, and they continue to cheer her on." NOTE: They have? Really?

"We're excited to deliver her story as she battles issues that resonate, from self-doubt and body image to a desire for success and redemption."

So true. What young girl can't relate to a washed-up, trashy singer of an E-list pop group who gets naked at every opportunity just to stay relevant?

Mel Gibson to Oksana Grigorieva in New Tape: No One Will Believe You!

An excerpt from Mel Gibson rant #6 ...

Oksana Grigorieva: You are acting as a crazy man right now. And you have been for many many months. And you hit me and you hit her. While she was in my hands. Mel, you are losing your mind. You need medication.



Oksana n

In the sixth tape of the actor losing it on Oksana (follow this link for all the Mel Gibson rants), he hurls the usual vile insults and appears generally insane.

Gibson and Grigorieva are engaged in an increasingly ugly custody fight over their daughter, Lucia, while Mel is under investigation for domestic violence.

Mel's attorneys have suggested that the tapes were recorded without his consent, as well as potentially altered. They also deny he attacked her physically.

She claims the tapes - along with a gruesome photo of her bruised face - prove her abuse allegation against him and that he is simply blaming the victim.

Gibson's camp has painted her as a extortionist, and there was apparently a $15 million settlement regarding custody and the tapes that she did not sign.

Follow the jump to hear the latest Mel Gibson tape ...

What do you think? Is this proof that Mel abused Oksana? Or is the evidence manipulated and/or circumstantial? Whose side are you on?

Book Her: Lindsay Lohan Jailed!

Lindsay Lohan is going to jail.

The troubled star surrendered in court this morning to begin serving a three-month sentence for violating the probation terms of her 2007 DUI conviction.

In reality, Lindsay may spend only about three weeks behind bars, due to the overcrowding of the facility she's headed to. Assuming she behaves herself.

Judge Marsha Revel did not allow the media to capture the exact moment of Linds' surrender (good for her, bad for us), before ordering her into custody.

"At this time, she will be remanded," the judge said as Lohan was about to be cuffed, adding "All cameras are ordered to be shut off, both still and video."

Revel said Lohan would not be eligible for house arrest or work release. She will also be required to report to probation within 24 hours of her release.

Lohan Jailed

Lindsay Lohan did not speak in court this morning.

After cameras were shut off, deputies took her away and removed her belongings as old/new lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley and her family looked on.

"I love you, Lindsay," said Michael Lohan, who unfortunately showed.

Lindsay will now begin processing at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood, Calif., where she will spend her sentence, however long that is.

Processing entails fingerprinting, photographing (new mug shots!), cell assignment,ankle monitor removal and a wardrobe change (orange jumpsuit!!).

Back in 2007, Lohan spent just 84 minutes at this same facility. Not long enough, apparently, to change her destructive behavior in any discernible way.

Here's hoping a few weeks or more does the trick this time around. What will be the biggest obstacle for her, no Twitter, no friends or no cigarettes?

We'll find out soon enough.

Report: Paris Hilton Busted for Pot ... Again

Paris Hilton was detained at a private airport on the French Island of Corsica after authorities discovered she had pot in her purse, this according to the AFP.

Hilton was found to have less than a gram of pot and
was released shortly thereafter.

If any of this sounds familiar, that's because it is -- Paris
was held briefly for the same thing two weeks ago while watching the World Cup in South Africa. Cops let Paris skate after they decided it was her friend who had the weed.

Looks like Paris is gonna need another friend.

UPDATE: For her part, Paris tweeted the following: "So sick of people making up rumors about me. The latest one about me is completely false too. Don't believe what you read. Silly nonsense." A few hours later, she tweeted a photo of herself ... on a jet ski.

Lindsay Lohan Will Do Time, New Lawyer Says

Robert Shapiro has officially filed papers to replace Shawn Chapman Holley as Lindsay Lohan’s attorney in her DUI case - and it could be the best thing for her.

Not because he's got some legal rabbit to pull out of a hat and save her from jail, but for the opposite reason. He's apparently convinced her to face the music.

Lohan’s next court date is Tuesday, July 20, at which point the star must turn herself in to begin serving a 90-day sentence for violating her DUI probation.

Shapiro, who must be approved by Judge Marsha Revel as Lohan's counsel before he can officially represent her, issued a statement to Access Hollywood Friday.

In it, he confirms he has taken the case, but only on one condition – that the troubled actress accept the judge’s decisions, including the “requirement of jail.”

Say WhaaaaatBob Shapiro

Lindsay's new legal eagle may be just what she needs - to get help.

“I have agreed to represent Ms. Lohan on the condition she comply with the terms of probation, including a requirement of jail, imposed by Judge Revel,” he said.

“Ms. Lohan is suffering from a disease that I am all too familiar with. Hopefully, I can be of assistance to Ms. Lohan and Judge Revel in implementing a treatment approach recommended by medical professionals for Ms. Lohan’s long term recovery.”

One of Shapiro’s sons, Brent, died of a drug overdose in 2005.

Lohan checked into a sober living house at the Pickford Lofts,founded by Shapiro. It is possible that Judge Revel could eliminate, reduce or postpone jail and simply keep Lohan there, but regardless, it's good Shapiro has her on the right path.

Snooki Wants to Punch Heidi Montag

Talk about a battle of larger-than-life MTV personalities.

With Heidi Montag's show The Hills ending its run this week (with no sign of the plastic princess) and Snooki's hit Jersey Shore kicking off its second season July 29, the two ladies have somehow gotten themselves into a hilarious feud.

Asked by Perez Hilton if Jersey Shore would consider taking Heidi on, Snooki replied: "I will punch her in the face because I don't like her. She had too many surgeries. She looks like an alien and guidettes don't look like aliens, just saying."


Stupid SnookiHeidi is Jacked

"Guidettes don't look like aliens." - Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi

Asked if there's a reason she hates Heidi Montag, she said: "I don't know [if she said anything about me]. I don't research Heidi because she's nothing to me."

Great stuff. Although when asked about her own pop culture relevance, the Jersey Shore star revealed her business model, which is quite to that of The Hills diva.

"I'm trying to do as much as I can right now. I have a clothing line coming out, then my hair [line] is Snook-it, [using] hairspray and a teasing comb," she said.

"My book's coming out about how I view the world."

How Heidi views Snooki is pretty unfavorable after she caught wind of the Oompa Loompa's feelings from Perez's Tweets (click here to follow THG on Twitter).

She responded: "@PerezHilton for a girl who was punched in the face I would think she of all people would know that is not a funny thing to joke about."

The 'Tag added: "@PerezHilton You have also been punched so I would think you would understand that is crossing the line and I don't think that is funny."

Taylor Momsen on Miley Cyrus Comparisons: Shut the Eff Up!

Miley Cyrus may be a colossal disappointment for a variety of reasons, but at least she doesn't curse, smoke or look like a raccoon at all times.

The same can't be said for Gossip Girl cast member Taylor Momsen.

Speaking to FHM UK this week, the 16-year old lashed out at critics that compare her to Miley, making it very clear that she doesn't see any similarities between the pair.

"I'm not looking to be Miley f*cking Cyrus," Momsen said. "I don't care about the fame. I do it because I love music. I like making records and if people like them, then we'll go along for the ride."

Taylor M.Miles in Concert

Momsen and Cyrus may both act and sing, but that's pretty much where the comparisons end. The former fronts rock band The Pretty Reckless, while the latter is nothing more than a Britney Spears wannabe at this point.

Still, Taylor feels a need to distance herself from Miley, adding: "I think the Disney bubblegum shit that the world is living right now is pathetic. I thought we passed that repression."

It's unclear what that actually means, but Gossip Girl fans have made their opinion of Momsen and her character well-known: Jenny Humphrey has been written out of most of next season on the show.

Good riddance.

Lady Gaga Braves Rain, Wows Today Show Crowd

A little rain couldn't slow down Lady Gaga's reign.

The singer played a full half-hour set on the Today show, belting out her newest song “You and I” (reportedly written for boyfriend Luc Carl) and some of her other hits.

Originally wearing oversized sparkle-encrusted bug goggles, she finished the routine without them. She did her traditional heel-banging on the piano, not to worry.

Here's the powerhouse performer in action ...

A Lady Gaga live performance is a uniquely awesome experience.
