    I'll get it started with more Paris Hilton dirt.

    Shanna Kindly Reminds Paris to Take Her Meds

    The ongoing feud between Paris Hilton and former Miss USA Shanna Moakler has gone beyond the level of “No she didn’t,” climbing into “Oh, yes she did” territory.

    When X17 asked Shanna if she had anything to say to Paris Wednesday night, Shanna advised her frenemy to "take her Valtrex." (Valtrex is an anti-herpes drug.)

    The battle has its roots in a September incident in which Paris was caught loaning her tongue to Moakler's ex, former blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. The musician - who is going to look like a massive, walking ink blot in 30 years after his tattoos have faded - is the second boyfriend Paris has stolen from Moakler, the first being boxer Oscar De La Hoya.

    One month ago, you may recall, Paris and Shanna each filed police reports against the other following a scuffle over Barker at Hyde nightclub in Hollywood. Paris claimed that Moakler punched her in the face, while Moakler contended that Paris's ex, Stavros Niarchos, pushed her down a flight of stairs.

    People, people, people. Let's take a step back and remember who the real victim is in this battle: punk rock. Punk rockers are supposed to be the dirty, grimy, hellraisers who buck society's conventions and spit in the face of conformity. Now guys with freaking neck tattoos are being fought over by former beauty queens and heiresses. Is nothing sacred? If Barker has any integrity left, he'll pull himself out of the center of this battle and settle down with a nice, clichéd meth addict, just like his punk rock idols before him.

    Flatley Is Suffering Immune Virus

    Dance superstar Michael Flatley is suffering a serious immune virus and may never dance again. Thursday it was revealed the 49-year-old Lord Of The Dance star has been battling a mystery illness in a private London hospital for the past two weeks. It was rumored to be connected to a face cancer scare Flatley spoke of earlier this year - but the star's spokesperson Geraldine Roche reveals he has a virus that is attacking his immune system and may rob him of his ability to dance. Doctors have carried out a series of tests on him - but are unable to establish what is wrong. After speaking with Flatley yesterday - Roche says, "He is very frustrated that he has been in hospital so long. He is incredibly motivated and driven and wants to get back on stage as soon as possible. But so far doctors have been unable to give him a firm promise on what the future holds and whether he'll ever be able to dance again. He has been inundated with messages of support." A friend who visited the star yesterday reveals, "He was conscious yesterday but was having difficulty breathing owing to a build up of fluid on his lungs. He has been suffering from flu like symptoms for sometime which have got progressively worse." Flatley has cancelled the forthcoming European tour of Celtic Tiger, his latest production.
    Houston Facing Foreclosure

    Whitney Houston's New Jersey home reportedly faces being seized and sold, because she owes more than $1 million in mortgage payments and unpaid taxes. The sale will take place on January 4, after being authorized this week by the Morris County Sheriff's Office. It follows a lawsuit filed by the service agent for the mortgage holder, Chevy Chase Bank, in June this year. If the sale goes ahead, Houston will only lose one of two properties that occupy her estate - which she bought in 1987 for $2.7 million - the one valued at $889,300. And adjacent house is valued at $5.6 million. The only way out for Houston is if she is able to reach a settlement with the service agent. The 43-year-old singer has dismissed the reports to Associated Press and her publicist insists the property is not in foreclosure.
    Duff Hailed a Heroine By Hurricane Relief Charity

    Pop star and actress Hilary Duff is being hailed a heroine by Hurricane Katrina charities after buying 200,000 meals for two refugee shelters in Houston, Texas. Duff bought the meals through charity USA Harvest and they'll be shipped to the shelters, where victims of the 2005 storms are still struggling to recover from the disaster. It's not the first time Duff has helped the victims of Hurricane Katrina through USA Harvest - she has carried out relief work with the charity. USA Harvest chairman Stan Curtis says, "Hilary has set an extraordinary example with her generous contributions to the Gulf Coast victims of last year's tragic hurricanes. With her current contribution, Hilary will have donated over 2.7 million meals to the victims who still need these generous donations." On the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in August, Duff traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana with Curtis to visit and aid victims of the hurricanes.

    Another Whitney Home to Highest Bidder by Gina Serpe
    from E! Online

    Whitney Houston's real estate bubble has definitely burst.

    Just two days after news broke that the once-reigning pop diva was in danger of losing her New Jersey home for failing to keep up with mortgage payments comes word that another one of her homes was placed on the auction block as a result of foreclosure.

    Sounds like being Bobby Brown—or at least being his wife—came with a hefty price tag.

    An Atlanta-area mansion the "I Will Always Love You" singer shared with her estranged hubby went into foreclosure this fall and, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, was sold off at an auction on the steps of the Fulton County Courthouse Nov. 7.

    There's no word on which wealthy civilian snatched up the five-bedroom, five-bathroom reality show-ready abode—it was, after all, featured in Being Bobby Brown—though whomever it was is already trying to turn a profit.

    The home is already back on the market, appearing on several real estate Websites and listed at $1.4 million. Houston, who despite her recent real estate woes, still has a safe haven in California, purchased the country club home with Brown in 2003 for a tidy $1.1 million.

    Earlier this week, news broke that the 43-year-old singer's 10-acre New Jersey estate, for which the Grammy winner owes more than $1 million in back taxes and mortgage payments, will also hit the auction block unless she ponies up the six-figure sum by Jan. 4.

    While Houston's publicist, Nancy Seltzer, denied that the northeast property was in foreclosure, it nevertheless appears to be headed for new ownership. The singer has the option of putting the house up for sale herself or simply paying off the mortgage company. Only if she takes no action will the house be auctioned off.

    The news of the would-be foreclosures come in the wake of Houston's divorce filing last month, which itself has paved the way for a image transformation that seems to have inspired Britney to do the same.

    Since ending her tabloid-fodder marriage of 14 years, Houston has cleaned up—and glammed up—her act, most recently reuniting with Arista mentor Clive Davis, appearing on his arm at the high-profile Carousel of Hope Ball in Beverly Hills last month.

    The powerful singer is also busy crafting another return to form, with a comeback album reportedly in the works.
    Mike Tyson: Fighter, Champ, Male Escort? By Mark Vester
    From BoxingScene.com

    Likely just another publicity stunt. But, it was reported by various popular media outlets such as contactmusic.com and wenn.com, that former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has agreed to become a male escort for legendary Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss.

    It was reported that an agreement was reached for Tyson to work in Fleiss' new legalized brothel for women in Nevada. Fleiss has bought 60 acres of land in Nevada and work is scheduled to begin on Heidi's Stud Farm.

    "I told him, 'You're going to be my big stallion.' "It's every man's fear that their girlfriend will go for Mike Tyson," Fleiss said.

    Rumors were going around about Tyson hooking up with Fleiss a few months ago, and Tyson did not exactly deny the rumors.

    "I don't care what any man says, it's every man's dream to please every woman - and get paid for it," Tyson said.
    Yuck!!

    They were separated already, but:

    Chris Robinson to divorce Kate Hudson

    LOS ANGELES - Rocker Chris Robinson filed for divorce from Kate Hudson on Friday, citing irreconcilable differences. The 39-year-old rocker and 27-year-old actress have been married for nearly six years. They announced their separation in August.

    According to the Superior Court filing, Robinson is seeking shared custody of the couple's son, Ryder Russell Robinson, who will turn 3 in January.

    Hudson, daughter of Goldie Hawn, was nominated for a supporting-actress Oscar for her role as rock groupie Penny Lane in 2000's "Almost Famous." Other screen credits include "You, Me and Dupree" and "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days."

    A call to Hudson representative Brad Cafarelli for comment after business hours Friday was not immediately returned.

    Robinson is the lead singer of the Black Crowes, a rock group that released its first CD, "Shake Your Money Maker," in 1990. The band's hits include "Hard to Handle" and "She Talks to Angels."

    Mike Tyson = Ewwwwww!!!

    I'm kinda sad about Michael Flatley. I know he's been parodied for years but he is a talented dancer. I saw a documentary once about him and how he started the whole Riverdance thing and it was really interesting.

    This story surprised the heck out of me:

    Richards Shouts Racial Slurs at Hecklers

    Michael Richards shouts racial epithets hecklers, drawing condemnation from fellow comedians

    (AP) A barrage of racial epithets unleashed by former "Seinfeld" star Michael Richards during a stand-up comedy routine drew condemnation from Richards' industry colleagues.

    Comedian Paul Rodriguez, who was at the Laugh Factory in West Hollywood on Friday when Richards responded to two black hecklers with the "n" word and profanities, said he was shocked by Richards' remarks.

    "Once the word comes out of your mouth and you don't happen to be African-American, then you have a whole lot of explaining," Rodriguez told CNN. "Freedom of speech has its limitations and I think Michael Richards found those limitations."

    Jerry Seinfeld issued a statement saying he was "sick over this."

    "I'm sure Michael is also sick over this horrible, horrible mistake. It is so extremely offensive. I feel terrible for all the people who have been hurt," Seinfeld said of Richards, 57, who played eccentric Kramer on the hit 1989-98 sitcom and whose major credit since was the failed 2000 comedy series, "The Michael Richards Show."

    Calls to Richards' representatives were not returned Monday.

    His Laugh Factory tirade began after the two clubgoers shouted at him that he wasn't funny. A videotape of the incident was posted on TMZ.com.

    Richards retorted: "Shut up! Fifty years ago we'd have you upside down with a f------ fork up your a--."

    He then paced across the stage taunting the men for interrupting his show, peppering his speech with racial slurs and profanities.

    "You can talk, you can talk, you're brave now mother------. Throw his a-- out. He's a n-----!" Richards shouts before repeating the racial epithet over and over again.

    Moderating his tone at one point, Richards tells the audience: "It shocks you. It shocks you" and refers to "what lays buried."

    While there is some chuckling in the audience throughout the outburst, someone can be heard gasping "Oh my God" and people respond with "ooh" after Richards uses the n-word.

    Eventually someone calls out: "It's not funny. That's why you're a reject, never had no shows, never had no movies. `Seinfeld,' that's it."

    On Monday, about a half-dozen community activists gathered at the club to denounce Richards' remarks and demand an apology.

    "These kind of comments hurt all of us," said protester Lita Sister Herron of the Youth Advocacy Coalition. She called Richards' comments hate speech.

    The protesters also demanded an apology from the Laugh Factory. At a news conference a short time later, club owner Jamie Masada expressed remorse and said Richards will not be back at the club until he says he's sorry.

    "This is one thing we don't tolerate. ... I personally apologize. I apologize from my heart," Masada said Monday.

    Richards did appear at the club Saturday, without incident, but that was because he had told the club he intended to apologize, according to a Laugh Factory statement Monday.

    Rodriguez, also at the news conference, said: "I kept expecting a punch line. It didn't come."

    Veteran publicist Michael Levine, whose clients have included famed comedians George Carlin, Sam Kinison and Rodney Dangerfield, called Richards' remarks inexcusable. Comics often face hecklers without losing their cool, he said.

    "It's never seen anything like this is my life," Levine said Monday. "I think it's a career ruiner for him. ... It's going to be a long road back for him, if at all."

    Daryl Pitts, a Laugh Factory audience member interviewed by CNN, compared the incident to another recent celebrity controversy.

    "You think about Mel Gibson and what he said, and put that in the context of this, it's very upsetting," Pitts said, referring to Gibson's anti-Semitic outburst during his arrest for drunken driving.

    Scrutiny of Richards' remarks likely will continue but won't match the level prompted by Gibson's behavior because Richards is far less famous, Levine said.

    Comedian George Lopez told Los Angeles television station KTLA that he thought Richards' lack of stand-up experience may have been a factor.

    "The question is you have an actor who is trying to be a comedian who doesn't know what to do when an audience is disruptive," Lopez said. "He's an actor whose show has been off the air, he shouldn't ever be on a stand-up gig."
