Paris Hilton Beer Ad Stirs Up Controversy In Brazil


Paris Hilton is causing a stir in Brazil with her ad for Devassa beer. As soon as the ad began airing, people began complaining.

It’s an ad that devalues women – in particular, blonde women,” according to a spokeswoman for the women’s secretariat who said it received numerous complaints.

Apparently, Brazil has regulations prohibiting beer companies from portraying women as “overtly sensual objects.” This from the country that hosts Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo? Hmmm… learn something new every day.

Anyway, here’s what people are criticizing about the ad:

“The problem with the ad isn’t a lack of clothing, but its sensual nature,” Correia said. “A woman in a bikini on a beach isn’t necessarily sensual; it depends on the context.”

The agency that investigates these complaints doesn’t have the power to take the ad off the air, but reportedly none of their recommendations have been ignored in the 23 years the agency has existed.

Take a look at the ad and tell me what you think:



Do you think the ad should be taken off the air?

Howard Stern Hosting Beauty Contest For Tiger Woods’ Mistresses


Shock jock Howard Stern is set to host a beauty pageant for the mistresses of Tiger Woods. The prize? $100,000!

So far four of Tiger’s alleged thirteen mistresses have agreed to participate. There will be traditional categories such as: swimsuit, personality and talent, but knowing Howard, this won’t be your traditional pageant.

The prize money for Stern’s pageant will be supplied by AshleyMadison.com, a “discreet dating service” company. The site, which has 4.5 million users, advertises itself with the slogan “Life is Short, Have an Affair.”

No word on which four have agreed to go along with it. I guess they’ve got pretty good odds at winning that pile of cash if only four are going to participate.

Are you surprised? Appalled? Indifferent?

Charlie Sheen “Dragged Into Rehab”


Although Charlie Sheen’s rep announced the actor had entered rehab yesterday afternoon, Radar Online is reporting that Charlie didn’t really check in until nearly midnight last night.

Sheen’s reps were caught off guard as he waited hours, making many around him nervous…

But Sheen resisted checking in, even after Team Sheen told the world he was already in rehab. It was only after RadarOnline.com reported late Tuesday night that Sheen was AWOL from rehab that he finally packed up and headed into the facility.

“Charlie didn’t want to go,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com.

Sadly, this isn’t uncommon for abusers who have relapsed. Addiction is a TOUGH illness to fight.

Radar Online is also reporting that Charlie is being treated for cocaine addiction as well as alcohol abuse.

“He loves his children and ultimately that’s what convinced him to get help,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com.

Hopefully Charlie will be able to sober up soon. Good for him for ultimately returning to rehab, regardless of how he got there.

‘Lost’ Star Matthew Fox Accused Of Cheating With A Stripper


Another actor embroiled in a scandal involving a stripper. This time it’s ‘Lost’ star Matthew Fox, who supposedly cheated on his wife of 18 years (they also have two children together) with stripper Stefani Talbott in Bend, Oregon on December 29. A cab driver claims she took Matthew and Stefani to Stefani’s townhouse.

“They kissed and touched each other in the cab,” [cab driver] Watson told the Enquirer. She picked them up at Talbott’s home an hour and a half after dropping them off and said, “they were more romantic than before, kissing a lot more and hugging each other.”

The cab driver also claims she heard Stefani bragging to a friend that she had sex with Matthew.

He denies this story.

I HOPE this isn’t true. He seems like one of the most grounded stars out there.

Charlie Sheen Enters Rehab


After saying that he didn’t need to go to rehab, Charlie Sheen’s rep confirmed that he has indeed entered a rehab facility today. It’s like a rehab merry-go-round! One goes in, one comes out, one goes in…

His rep shared:

“He will take some time off from his series, ‘Two and a Half Men.’ He has asked that his privacy be honored.”

It’s being said that he’s taking this step as a preventative measure.

I wonder what this means for Brooke re-entering rehab? I would assume they are at two different places? It might be helpful for their relationship, as they’ll hopefully be on the same page in their treatment, etc.

Ryan Phillippe And Abbie Cornish Each Say They Dumped The Other


This looks like it’s going to get ugly. Yesterday I told you about how Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish had split and pointed out how unusual it was that Abbie even made an announcement since they were so low-key. Now they’re arguing over who ended the relationship.

First came Abbie’s announcement via her rep to People:

“Abbie ended the relationship with Ryan and she moved out of their home.”

Later in the day, Ryan’s rep released his statement:

“Ryan ended the relationship and asked her to move out of his house.”

A source close to Ryan told OK! magazine:

“She was gone for seven months in production and they basically grew apart,” the source adds. “They’d broken up a few times prior. There was no cheating or roving eyes.”

However, a friend of Abbie’s tells a different story.

“Abbie has always questioned Ryan’s loyalty. How could she not? When she began dating him he was married, she’s a smart girl,” dishes the insider. “She knows men don’t change, she hoped he would but she always knew deep down this wasn’t forever.”

Ouch. Isn’t that what Ryan and Abbie always tried to deny, that their relationship started while Ryan was still married to Reese Witherspoon?

Well, hopefully now that they’ve both made their statements, they’ll be able to move on. Airing more dirty laundry is probably just going to make them both look bad.

UPDATE: Brooke Mueller Leaves Rehab Early


Charlie Sheen’s wife, Brooke Mueller, just entered rehab on February 9th, but has left early – according to TMZ. Brooke left the facility, possibly over a leak of her admissions paperwork to the media. The papers are said to be VERY detailed about the circumstances surrounding her entering rehab.

Reportedly, she’s at home at the moment, but will be heading to a new center very soon.

The facility responsible for the leak is doing an investigation to find the staff member responsible.

I’m guessing the details are going to start surfacing any day now.

UPDATE: Brooke’s rep released the following statement: “Brooke left The Canyon for purposes of privacy, and immediately checked into an undisclosed facility to diligently continue her treatment. Her commitment to recovery and being the best mother she can be remains the most important issue.”
