Fashion-Crazed Woman Behind Paris Hilton & Lindsay Lohan Thefts

Now this might be taking a love of fashion just a bit too far, right? A 19 year old woman was arrested as part of a sting operation in connection with the thefts at the homes of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Audrina Patridge and Orlando Bloom. Rachel J. Lee, who is described as having “an obsession with celebrity fashion“, and several other women found the stars’ addresses by using the internet and even those Hollywood Star maps. From there, they figured out when the stars wouldn’t be home based on their appearance schedules! Now that’s downright creepy.

Lee, an alumni of Indian Hills High School in the upscale neighborhood of Calabasas – and a classmate of fellow suspect Nicholas Prugo, 18, who has been formally charged with the Lohan and Patridge burglaries – could not be reached for comment.

Reportedly, the reason behind Orlando Bloom being a target was a hope to get their hands on Miranda Kerr’s belongings. Also, the article notes that there isn’t any word so far if these women are connected to the burglaries at the homes of Hayden Panettiere and Rachel Bilson.

All of the young women arrested were only 18 and 19 years old! I love fashion as much as the next girl but this is really obsessed to the point of crazy. Maybe Kourtney Kardashian and her mom should hold off on accusations that they think it was a member of the reality show crew who robbed her home until these women are investigated further!

Ashlee Simpson’s Character Being Written Off Melrose Place

Melrose Place is doing a major overhaul of it’s cast in the upcoming months. Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and co-star Colin Egglesfield are being let go from the show. They are also adding new cast members to change up the tone of the new series.

But, before the media goes wild saying that Ashlee wasn’t good enough or the other crazy rumors that will fly, the executive producers, Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer, set the record straight that her character was only to be a short-term one from the start.

EW: So it was always the plan for Ashlee to leave after episode 12?
SLAVKIN: Yes. Because we felt that once the murder mystery was resolved, the tone of the show was going to shift into a much more fun, romantic, sexy upbeat kind of show, and [her] character would move on.

EW: How did Ashlee and Colin take the news?
SLAVKIN: They’re total professionals and they took it like professionals. When you go into a show you never know what’s going to evolve and what the possibilities are. But because they knew ahead of time [that leaving was a possibility], it wasn’t a complete shock.

They also shared that Heather Locklear is going to be with the series long-term.

EW: How long do you have Heather for?
SLAVKIN: A long time. She’s in every episode moving forward. She’s a major focus [of the show]. She has a hidden agenda that will become not so hidden as the episodes move along. She’s not just the boss of Ella [Katie Cassidy].

Are you watching the show? What do you think about them changing the direction of the show to something more “fun, sexier, romantic”? Will it still appeal to you?

Jodie Sweetin To Write Book About Drug-Fueled Past

For those of you who don’t recognize the name, Jodie Sweetin played Stephanie Tanner on the hit show Full House. She’s had a very turbulent life since the show ended and is writing a memoir (titled “Unsweetined”) about her struggle with drug and alcohol dependence.

“I wanted to prove that I wasn’t the girl from Full House, that I could get more trashed than everyone else,”

Her first drink was at age 14 while attending co-star Candice Cameron’s wedding. She passed out in the bathroom and right then realized:

I was Jodie Sweetin and I was an alcoholic.”

According to the article, she started out with alcohol and progressed to other drugs such as cocaine and crystal meth. She even fesses up to driving drunk with her infant daughter, Zoie, in the car.

I hope she’s gotten herself sober and maybe that’s a step in her recovery – sharing her experience in a book?

Fact or Fiction: *NSYNC Reunion A Possibility

*NSYNC fans may have reason to dig out their old memorabilia, including the bobble heads shown in the picture above (circa 2001). Former bandmate Chris Kirkpatrick shared that there’s no reason to rule out a possible reunion! Probably not anytime real soon, but there’s still a chance:

“You never know what the future holds. Anything could happen,” says Kirkpatrick, 38, who now fronts the pop/rock band Nigels 11. “We’re all just being ourselves for a little while.”

“I think when the stars are aligned, the time is right, and all five of us have our heads on straight and know the direction we’re going as a band, it’ll eventually happen. If not, I know we’ll be best friends forever.”

Lance Bass had talked about this very thing about a year ago.

Do you think this band could have a successful reunion even though they’ve been split up since 2002? It worked really well for the Spice Girls and even New Kids on the Block. Are there any die-hard *NSYNC fans out there who would love to see this happen?

Beyonce Delays Concert In Malaysia Amid Controversy

Beyonce has delayed a planned tour stop in Malaysia amid accusations by Islamic conservatives that the show would be too “immoral”.

The show “has been postponed to a future date to be announced shortly,” Malaysian entertainment company Marctensia said in a statement.

“The postponement is solely (the) decision of the artist and has nothing to do with other external reasons,” the statement said.

Beyonce also canceled a performance back in 2007 after there were threats of a protest. She wound up doing the show in Indonesia instead, where the rules are a little less strict.

According to Access Hollywood, other performers just choose less-revealing costumes for their show:

Other female pop stars such as Avril Lavigne and Gwen Stefani have performed in Malaysia despite similar protest threats by conservative Muslims. Both singers wore clothes that revealed little skin.

Do you think Beyonce will change her mind and go with less risque stage costumes? I’m sure her Malaysian fans hope so, if this is the real reason for the “delay” and/or possible cancellation.

Khloe Kardashian Laughs Off Marriage Trouble Rumors

Khloe Kardashian is dismissing rumors that her marriage “is on the rocks”. She took to her blog to laugh off the story.

Just wanted to share with you guys this hilarious story that Star mag wrote about Lamar’s and my marriage. According to Star, our marriage is on the rocks because I threw a fit when Lamar refused to give me a massage!!! I seriously died when I read that! LOL.

She makes it clear that she feels Star magazine is not a credible source for news. LOL

“They are becoming the Enquirer. Next thing you know they’ll be saying that Kourtney is giving birth to a cat! LOL. All of their stories are absurd but at least we get a good laugh from their lies.

Khloe shares on her blog that she is more than happy with her husband and they are definitely still on cloud 9.

Married life is incredible and I’ve never been so happy. I feel so blessed to have Lamar and I can’t wait to spend my life with him!

I’m sure the two are in for a long road of crazy rumors and “how long will it last?” pools, especially seeing how quickly they got married.

Jimmy Kimmel’s Relationship Causing Problems On Show

At least, that’s what sources reportedly are telling Radar Online. These sources say that others on staff of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ are unhappy about Jimmy Kimmel’s relationship with head writer Molly McNearny. One staffer was supposedly so upset she/he quit.

According to the source, the staff is disgruntled that Molly gets preferential treatment and isn’t afraid to let people know about her relationship. “People on the staff think she has become nasty lately.”

“Molly McNearney definitely has been using her relationship with Jimmy to move up in the show, and he definitely played favorites with her over other more qualified staffers,” said the source.

Although Jimmy and Molly were thought to have begun dating after Jimmy’s five-year relationship with Sarah Silverman ended, some show staffers claim Jimmy and Molly were dating while Jimmy was dating Sarah.
