Joe Simpson Gives John Mayer A Piece Of His Mind


This isn’t the slightest bit surprising to hear :) According to OK! Magazine, Joe Simpsonmade a furious phone call” to John Mayer over John’s “sexual napalm” comments about daughter Jessica.

“Joe took it upon himself to call John up directly for a ‘man to man’ discussion,” the source says. “Joe didn’t tell Jessica ahead of time because he knew she’d object.

“The conversation was pretty one-sided,” the source explains. “Joe told John that he best not even think of uttering Jessica’s name again.

“John put up a feeble defense – he tried to reason with Joe that he was praising Jessica, not insulting her,” the source reveals. “But no father wants to hear from an ex-boyfriend about how hot his daughter is in bed – and Joe told John as much.”

Joe may seem over-involved in his daughters’ lives, but you can’t really blame him for this one. John did have it coming.

The source also told OK! that Joe told John he needed to “man-up and apologize,” so John sent Jessica an email, reportedly “apologizing if the interview offended her.”

That seems so… inadequate. No reps commented to OK! regarding this story. I’d be more surprised to find out this story WASN’T true, however. What do you think?

Was Kim Kardashian Jealous Of ‘Jersey Shore’ Star?


‘Jersey Shore’ star Jenni “JWOWW” Farley apparently managed to ruffle the feathers of Kim Kardashian at her fashion show earlier this week. Jenni was seated in the front row of Kim’s Bebe-Kardashian show, and instead of snapping photos of Kim, the photographers went crazy trying to get Jenni’s picture and that didn’t sit well with Kim.

Jenni shared that she had no idea she would cause any kind of stir:

“Honest to God, I don’t know if that’s just me being grounded, but I wasn’t even expecting to take one picture there,” Farley said. “I just wanted to sneak in, sit down and watch it and maybe get to meet Kim, but when I walked in there was a lot of publicity. I took it the best way I could.”

According to Fox 411, a “handler” for Jenni tried several times to arrange a a face to face meeting, but were shot down because “the spotlight” needed to stay on Kim.

Kim’s rep denies this claim:

“Kim didn’t get to meet any of the celebs that were there. She was backstage all morning doing interviews and prep and then went right to her seat when the show started and then was taken immediately backstage after the show for more interviews,” said the rep.

Jenni was pretty bummed about not getting to meet the reality star:

“I really wanted to go there just to meet Kim, but that didn’t happen. I don’t know why,” Farley said. “I was really wishing that I could meet her, I don’t know if it was because there was too much media surrounding me, or I took too long answering the media questions. I don’t know what happened.”

What do you think? Do you think Kim was busy or just peeved that the attention wasn’t solely on her?

Sean Penn Will Face Criminal Charges


According to TMZ, Sean Penn will be charged with criminal battery and vandalism (two misdemeanor counts) today after a run-in with paparazzi. TMZ caught the incident on camera:

Sean allegedly broke the paparazzo’s camera when he kicked him. If convicted of both counts, Sean could face one and a half years in jail.

I doubt Sean will see the inside of a jail cell over this, but it seems like he’d have learned how to control his temper a little better by now. He’s been in the business long enough to know that paparazzi is part of the deal (although I can see where it would get irritating sometimes).

What do you think: does Sean deserve to face charges based on the video above?

Update: Tiger Woods Says His Real Apology Will Come From His Behavior (Video Added)

Tiger Woods finally faced the public today, making a statement before a small group of invited reporters, his mother, friends, and business associates (if Elin was there, I didn’t see her).

Here’s some of what he had to say:

“I want to say to each of you simply and directly: I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible, selfish behavior… I know people want to find out how i could be so selfish and so foolish. People want to know how I could have done these things to my wife Elin and to my children. And while I have always tried to be a private person, there are some things i want to say,” Woods said from behind a podium.

“Elin and I have started the procress of discussing the damage caused by my behavior,” he explained, adding, “My real apology .. will come from my behavior. We have a lot to discuss. What we say to each other will remain between the two of us.”

Besides Tiger’s assertion that Elin never hit him (which I suspect he said to protect her), I thought he pretty much took full responsibility for what he did. And I completely agree that ultimately, he’ll have to prove himself through his actions.

He also said he is returning to rehab for more treatment.

Here’s a transcript of his statement:

No Truth To Simon Cowell Engagement Rumors?


The British tabloids were abuzz today after Simon Cowell’s new girlfriend was spotted wearing a ring on her wedding finger (see gallery). Makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy has just recently started dating Simon, but that didn’t curb the rumors. They were even noting that Simon now wanted to have kids, too.

However, a source close to Simon told E! that he is definitely not engaged.

I think the media is in a bigger hurry for Simon to settle down than he is. ;)

Lindsay Lohan’s Dad Says He Wants Her In Rehab


Today there was a routine probation hearing for Lindsay Lohan and the judge said “everything looks good”. She didn’t have to appear at today’s hearing nor does she need to attend the next one set for May. The judge feels that Lindsay is compliant with the terms of her probation, but Michael Lohan disagrees completely.

Michael went straight to Radar Online today to make a public plea.

“I’ve been trying to get in touch with the judge for months now,” Michael told Radar Online. “As of the last court date, when I saw the way Lindsay walked into court, the way she looked and conducted herself, I knew there was something wrong, terribly wrong. It’s my opinion that Lindsay should not have been let out of the courtroom, she should have been tested, and if she was dirty, not put in jail but put into a rehab.”

He believes the “pictures” are telling:

“My daughter needs rehab for at least three months,” Michael told Radar Online. “Come on… let’s face it, there are pictures of her out there – you reported it, others have reported it… of her drinking and taking pills in public. If you’re on probation, is that what the system approves of?”

That part really intrigues me – he’s saying that we should believe she needs help based on rumors and pap photos? Hmmmm….

He then shares a private message to Lindsay:

“It really p****s me off that when you have trouble or when you’re in St. Barth’s and you have nowhere to turn to and you tell me everything is going awry and your sister is missing…I’m up 6 hours in the night trying to hire a jet to pick you up and take you home…and then you flip the script on me,”

“Whenever you need me, you call me. Whenever you have a problem, I’m there for you. You can’t backstab people. You can’t turn your back on the people that love you and want to help you.”

“This is about you getting well, you getting healthy, me loving you and wanting you to do the right thing. The prescription drugs are killing you.”

Do you think she really has a problem? Or do you think Michael is just addicted to the attention he gets because of Lindsay?

Do You Think Gary Coleman Has An Anger Management Problem?


Former ‘Different Strokes’ star Gary Coleman went on The Insider in an effort to explain his side of the story after his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence last month. Here’s a clip:

I think it would be fair to say things didn’t go well (unless the goal was to get attention, in which case, it was pretty successful).

He gives his reaction to seeing his mug shot here:

It’s sad to see what’s become of him. Hopefully he’ll be able to get himself together.
