Weird Celeb News Buffet

It seems that weird and wacky news about celebs just keep piling up. So much so that I couldn't possibly blog about each of them individually. So I've started recapping the most weird stories and giving you the links to the sources....kinda like a Weird celeb news buffet!

First up....

A Socialites Life is reporting that Lou Diamond Phillips was sentenced to 32 months probation for battery.

A judge stood and delivered the sentence to Lou Diamond Phillips yesterday on
his domestic battery charges, PEOPLE has the scoop:

Phillips, 44, was sentenced to 32 months of probation, one year of
domestic violence counseling and 200 hours of community service. was first to report the no contest plea.
Phillips was charged with domestic battery, a misdemeanor, in September. The charges stemmed from his Aug. 11 arrest after a physical fight with his girlfriend.

It has been rumored that the fight broke out when his new girlfriend admitted
that she too was in love with Melissa Etheridge. Google

Celebrity Smack has an article that Elliot Yamin has a new set of Chiclets

People Magazine says Elliot received over $50,000 worth of dental work done and
spent many hours in the dentist chair for his new smile.

"He loves to laugh, he loves to smile," says girlfriend Jaime Paetz, 28, "I liked his old teeth, but if (the veneers) make him happy, then I'm happy."

Yamin's Beverly Hills dentist David Frey, who provided his services free of charge (for publicity, of course) said, "It is going to help muscle function, it is going to increase the volume (of his voice) if anything, he could become an even better singer."

Elliott said he alwasy wanted a nicer smile. "I used to look at old pictures of myself, and I figured out how to kind of smile without displaying all my teeth."

The Cityrag has the scoop on the cut marks on Lindsey Lohan's wrist...

Mike Walker of the National Enquirer was on Howard Stern yesterday with the
story behind Lindsay Lohan's wrist wounds and continued coverage of that
area. Sources close to Lindsay have revealed that she was seen
"sawing at her wrist with a butter knife" while complaining about the miserable
state of her life to friends in a London hotel room, resulting in the cuts seen
in various photos. According to Mike Walker it was "a dull knife" and "not a
suicide attempt, but a cry for help". It turns out Linday's a
spitter and a slitter. Link

The Defamer has a story on Wesley Snipes tax evasion arrest...

We know that you want us to tell you that fugitive from tax-code-justice Wesley
Snipes' arrest for the fraud charges filed against him back in
October involved some kind of dramatic stand-off at the Orlando airport,
with Snipes finally being dragged off the private jet that returned him to the
States from Namibia after ten frantic hours of repelling wave after wave of IRS
goons while armed only with eating utensils found in the plane's galley.
Unfortunately, Snipes quietly turned himself in, made a brief court appearance
in Ocala, Florida (sorry, he didn't wrestle a weapon from a momentarily
distracted bailiff, admonish his captors for "not betting on black" then
escaping in a stolen police car) and plans to immediately return to the African
set of the low-budget zombie flick he's shooting while waiting for Hollywood to
come to its senses and restore him to his mid-1990s stardom. Reality, as it so
often is, is far less action-packed than the high-paying, shitty movies that got
Snipes into this trouble in the first place. Link

Egotastic has some gossip on Paris Hilton's supposed engagment...

"Are Paris Hilton and Stavros Niarchos engaged, or is the attention-starved
heirhead pulling another sad publicity ploy?" That's the question asked by Page Six, and I'm going to say it's a publicity stunt, all the way. In fact, her "diamond" ring looks like the kind you'd find in those "claw" game machines. Link

Radar has a great article on the best Hollywood Catfights of 2006...

Mrawr! If you're like us and love a good catfight but have inexplicably been
banned from the local women's prison, don't despair. This last year has been a
festival of womanly throw-downs. While much of the girl-on-girl drama is no
doubt fueled by jealousy, insecurity, shame, self-loathing, and green
apple-tinis, it's probably fair to say that some of these ladies are just
straight-up sober, pissed-off bee-atches. Ladies, to your corners. At the sound
of the bell, let the hair pulling, eye gouging, and toe stomping begin. Link

Hollywoodtuna got some dirt on Jessica Simpson's performance...

Jessica Simpson’s mother gave Jess a verbal smackdown after her
“embarrassing” rendition of “9 to 5″ in front of Dolly Parton and President
Bush at the Kennedy Center Honors last weekend, telling her that she should
get out of the business if she doesn’t want to put in the work. Sources tell
TMZ that Tina Simpson was furious with Jess after she flubbed lyrics, stood
statue-still on stage while trying to hold her dress up, and then awkwardly
hurried off with a few mumbled words to Parton. Tina told her daughter that
the performance was “embarrassing” and “unprofessional”.

I think Jessica Simpson's mom should ease up a bit. I mean, it’s not
like anyone pays attention to Jessica and her musical “talents”. The only
reason she’s there is to stand up on stage, look pretty and show off her
rack for TV ratings. That’s it. Plain and simple. You know it, I know it and
Papa Joe knows it too. If anything Jess’s mom should be upset that she
managed to keep her dress from falling because let’s be honest that would have been the ultimate tribute to Dolly Parton. Link

That's about it for now, stay tuned for more crazy and whacky happenings from the town we call Hollyweird.
