Cindy Crawford & Rande Gerber: “At a concert at the Malibu Inn in early February, the 47-year-old supermodel was more of a hot mess! While downing drink after drink, she went on a wild dancing and flirting spree with victims including Brody Jenner and Johnny Zambetti, the lead guitarist of the headlining band Terraplane Sun – all while Rande Gerber, her husband of 14 years, looked on unfazed.” Cindy supposedly told Zambetti “My marriage is over!” and he says that “she certainly wasn’t acting like a married woman. She was acting like a single, 21-year-old party girl.” Cindy’s rep claims the couple is just fine, and that they were there to see Shwayze. “Cindy was not flirting with any men or drinking. Cindy and Rande are very happily married.” There have been rumors of turmoil in the Crawford-Gerber union before, including the gossip that they participate in partner swapping with other celebrity couples like George Clooney and Stacy Keibler. Witnesses say Cindy was wasted and kept talking about “hot band guys” while “chasing Brody all around the bar. After a while, he and his two guy friends started to mess with her, buying her shots and making her take them. She was loving the attention!” Also I mean, c’mon Brody, it’s fucking Cindy Crawford. Rande “wasn’t paying Cindy any attention at all. He was completely checked out.” Friends say “Rande’s indifference is precisely the reason Cindy’s behaving like a teenager in the first place — it’s her way of getting back at him for cheating on her throughout their marriage.” Star had an exclusive in 2004 when Rande hooked up with a New Orleans waitress. “Cindy’s put up with a lot over the years.” SOUNDS LIKE IT. “She always flirts with guys, and it’s really sad because I think she does it out of jealousy over Rande flirting with other women.”

Justin Bieber Is Addicted to Shopping: “Swag doesn’t come cheap. 19-year-old Justin Bieber is a certified shopaholic whose over-the-top retail habit is making his management team nervous. Sources say the Biebs is blowing through cash at an alarming rate, spending more than $50,000 a week on designer clothes, hotel room parties, and gifts for his friends.” He buys dumb things like a $25,000 diamond-encrusted chain of Stewie from Family Guy. “Justin has a black Amex with no credit limit. He has an addictive personality and shopping is just one of his fixations.” His mom has tried to get him to cut down, but she can’t exactly ground him. “The word ‘budget’ isn’t in his vocabulary. Hmm, is ‘bankruptcy’?” Yikes.

Jennifer Lawrence Is Depressed: “She’s utterly exhausted from endless interviews, traveling nonstop, and four hours of sleep a night. Plus, her breakup with Nicholas Hoult crushed her. She’s completely overwhelmed and irritable and is fighting with everyone.” Aw, Jen, let’s get some cheesesteaks. Pat’s or Geno’s?

Ashlee Simpson Having a Breakdown: “Her split from beau Vincent Piazza and the divorce of her parents has sent Ashlee Simpson into a boozy tailspin.” A witness who saw Simpson partying at L.A.’s Pink Taco says, “She was downing drinks like there was no tomorrow. She asked for a straight shot and added it to her already mixed cocktail. Then she grabbed a random guy and started grinding on him. People had to hold her up as she left — she was out of control.” She also recently put out a very weird video for her self-released single “Bat For A Heart.”

Jennifer Aniston & John Mayer & Katy Perry: Hollywood is a small town and basically a high school. Jen introduced John Mayer to her favorite restaurant, the Tower Bar at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood, when they were dating, and he has since brought subsequent girlfriends there. “Jen freaked out when she ran into John and Katy one night. Then John poured on the PDA with Katy.” It’s cool, Jen Aniston, you upgraded so hard with Justin Theroux. Still, that doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to feel totally weird about running into your ex and his new love. At least they weren’t on a double date with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie?

Jude Law’s Baby Mama Drama: “His two-week fling with a Hooters waitress” named Samantha Burke “resulted in an unplanned pregnancy” that he demanded a paternity test for, which ended up proving that the baby is indeed his. “Even after the DNA test, he dealt with them in a very businesslike fashion.”

Rihanna & Chris Brown Planning a Wedding? “They want tattoo artists, fire breathers, and a near-naked waitstaff. They’re even talking about having pre-rolled joints at the reception!” Nah, sorry, this is still the worst idea ever.

Keri Russell: “Not every mom is a KGB spy, but every mom has this whole other life. That is what is very relatable.”

Misc/Etc: “He knows how badly he’s always treated the women in his life” “That’s why she didn’t have a single margarita in Cabo” “Not even toddlers can resist Ryan Gosling’s charms” “the other ladies will be so annoyed” “panicking and making up fake story lines” “totally boring, just a yoga-and-granola loving hippie with two kids” “The Duckface” “the thigh’s the limit” “For once the drummer may be the best-looking member of the band” “looked, like, really cool” “picked up a few skills from Buckets, of the Harlem Globetrotters” “HOBBLED BUT STILL HAUTE!” “wrinkle-free and lovely” “the biggest bear and a thousand roses” “Olivia Munn jumped behind the DJ booth” “Taylor Swift channeled her inner daredevil” “Chace Crawford has an important conversation with a show” “She wants to be a billionaire by the time she turns 40” “Across the runway sat Matt Damon, who mouthed ‘wow.'”



John Mayer & Katy Perry Are Engaged? “John Mayer may be Hollywood’s most notorious womanizer, valedictorian of the College of Bad Boyfriends, the man who infamously kissed and told too much about Jessica “Sexual Napalm” Simpson, Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift, and on and on. But with Katy Perry, it’s different.” I’M DIFFERENT, YEAH I’M DIFFERENT. He recently proposed to the “Teenage Dream” chanteuse. “What made this serial-dating legend decide to toss away his little black book and commit to Katy? More than anything else, it was her strength and spirit.” And her boobs. Don’t forget about her huge awesome boobs. “He loves that she’s so independent and doesn’t cling to him like a lovesick barnacle.” Aw, barnacles are cool. “Katy, of course, loves a bad boy, but she’s not going to let a man stomp all over her. She’s really quite sassy with John – and he loves it! He needs someone to take him down a notch.” Doesn’t every alpha male? “John has changed. There’s a kind of sweet humility about him these days and that’s due to Katy. He said she’s got him, hook, line and sinker, and he wants to spend the rest of his life making her happy.” HE BETTER! Or prepare to face the wrath of the KatyCats.

Jamie-Lynn Sigler Is Pregnant: “The former onscreen mob kid known as Meadow Soprano confirmed she’s having her first child.” MISS YOU, MEADOW.

Kathie Lee on Photobombing: “I’m guilty of it too but I only bomb true friends.”

Misc/Etc: “No actor should be working for free” “waiting for her in her trailer with a huge bunch of pink roses” “for his talent and his body” “gorgeous cashmere baby blankets” “I can assure you that little Kanye Jr. will be fitted with one-of-a-kind couture” “Photobomber-in-Chief Bill Clinton” “they were found hiding in a West Virginia shed along with large amounts of Oxycodone and heroin” “we’re having sex at the studio” “THE SAUCER-EYED DIVA ACCEPTS” “It’s seeing who he is really turning out to be” “no one can talk her out of it” “I don’t know how to answer that without sounding like an asshole.” “I like it in spurts.”

If there’s one thing I’m so thankful I have, it’s that privacy of pretty much my whole life until seven years ago.” If Kim Kardashian disapproves of your fame-whoring, you know you’ve gone too far.
