Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt split; Fergie on video sting: 'I was drinking'

By Jen Chaney and Liz Kelly
Tuesday

Speidi Split: It's official, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have separated after a little more than a year of marriage. Although Heidi has reportedly moved in with a pal, Pratt's sister says she's not buying the breakup, calling Speidi "liars." Could it all be fodder for Montag's new reality project, "The Heidi Show?"

Check your sheets, people. Who had "a little over a year"? Anyone? I'm sorry to say I'm out. I had them pegged for six months.

Fergie also was drinking when she said "I do" to Prince Andrew.


Celine Dion expecting twins: you say, "screaming babies," she says, "three-part harmony."


Some people might think it's odd that a girl with a nose like Bombshell McGee's is anti-Semitic.

Fergie, I'm sorry, your defense is "I was drinking???" Not even, "I was drunk and have no memory of what happened!"

What possible help to her image could this Oprah appearance offer? She's not a fraud, she's a drunk?

How about, "I am stupid. Stupid to marry into the Royal family when I didn't want to lead that weirdo life, stupid to then accept a small divorce settlement, stupid to STILL be low on money, all these years later. Stupid."

Sheesh. She is 50 years old.

Michelle "Bombshell" McGee says Nazi uniform wasn't racist, just anti-Semitic.

And she thinks this is going to make it better? To call her a tool would be a compliment.


Pratt's sister says she's not buying the breakup, calling Speidi "liars." Could it all be fodder for Montag's new reality project, "The Heidi Show?"

Wouldn't put it past 'em.


Fergie tells Oprah she had been drinking when she tried to sell access to ex Prince Andrew.

As Howie Kurtz pointed out yesterday, at least Sarah admitted to her wrongdoing, rather than blaming the media. OTOH, drinking's no longer tolerated as an excuse for bad behavior (for those Lizards old enough to recall, or at least have heard about, the bad old days pre-MADD when drunk driving accidents actually tended to mitigate culpability, or at least elicit sympathy, for the drunk driver). Sorry, Fergie, but you yourself were responsible for your subsequent behavior if you had too much to drink.


Miley Cyrus's concert get-up: too hot for 17?

Worse than the outfit was Miley's reported feeling herself up onstage. Ick. Nast.


Celine Dion expecting twins.

For all the well-deserved snark we heap on you, thanks for being honest about your 40+ pregnancy not occurring the old-fashioned way. Best wishes for healthy twins.

To be fair to Fergie, the other night I was drinking and I also tried to sell access to Prince Andrew.


"Celebrity Rehab" postponed due to lack of star power...And yet that's never stopped them before.

That Les Grossman part is the best thing Tom Cruise has done in years. Glad to see a bit more of it.

As for Speidi... it's definitely a con. Not that I see them growing old together or anything, but there will be months, if not YEARS, of tabloid on-again/off-again covers. *sigh*

Per Miley:

Okay, I'm not the girl's biggest fan, but she was wearing a leotard. I was expecting some sort of vintage Britney Spears thing or some sort of barely-covered outfit.

While perhaps some more opaque tights to go with would have been good, I wore leotards and tights to public Jazzercise classes when I was 15, because that was what you wore to work out in the 80's. Some modern ballet costumes are leotards that leave no anatomy to the imagination, and the dancers aren't much older (if at all) than Miley Cyrus.

Besides, after the "Single Ladies" video, I would say they are acceptable public performance costume. And that's not that skimpy - she definitely needed a Brazilian, mind you, but she isn't going to fall out of the top of that thing.

If leotards are too racy, then the "Single Ladies" video should be X-rated. GaGa should be banned completely since she apparently finds them too confining.

WDC2, I wonder if Heincer conceives of all this as a sort of "performance art," except it's not very artistic, IMHO. Still, Warhol might've been amused. Or not.

"Fergie tells Oprah she had been drinking when she tried to sell access to ex Prince Andrew" -- Last time Sarah Ferguson went on a bender, she tried to sell access to Prince Albert in a can.

"Celine Dion expecting twins" -- Once more, she opened the door. To motherhood, I mean.

"Each of Michael Jackson's children inherits $33 million" -- That's all?! Brad Pitt could make that much doing a single Japanese TV commercial.

"Paul McCartney's tour bus attacked by Mexican mob?" -- Rumor has it he yelled at them to get back, get back, get to where they once belonged.

td, maybe they wanted to move to Jojo's home in Tucson, Arizona?

LOL. Well done, Nosy!

Well at least Bombshell McGee didn't say anything about the Lindbergh baby.

Hey, Chamasaur, you made the second posting.

The Speidi Split is a publicity stunt. Just like the marriage was. EVERYTHING these two do is a publicity stunt. Although I did love the one Spencer family member remarking that he is certifiably insane. If even family says that, time for the "i love me" jacket.

Fergie says she had been drinking when that sting operation happened. I doubt that the sting would have happened at all if someone hadn't heard about her selling access to Prince Andrew. She may have been drinking, but I'm guessing it wasn't her first time at selling access.

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have half a brain between them when they are together. How do they manage to live apart? Do they share custody of the cortical hemisphere?

If Sarah Ferguson had been wearing one of Lindsay Lohan's designer alcohol monitoring bracelets, she might not have tried to sell access to Prince Andrew. Sell Prince Andrew to Access Hollywood, yes, but not access to Prince Andrew. Andrew, come out of the can! Fergie's gotta use the loos, too!


Kristen Stewart, I admire how you dress up The Eminem Double Eagle with that cig. You're not only giving the paps the bird, you're giving them the cig, for good measure.

Bombshell McGee was not being racist when she wore that pseudo Wehrmacht uniform. She was modeling for this years Spring Fascism Show.

When the mob stormed Paul McCartney's tour bus, he and his retinue fled the scene, becoming a band on the run.

Now taking bets on how long it will be before we know whether Miley has a Brazilian, courtesy of a pap shot.

Given Miley's proclivity for public self-pleasuring, pehaps she can cut a tune called My Friend Flicka.

I have to wonder what the long-term effects will be of what Celine Dion has put her body through. Ever heard of adoption?

Yeah, I think Speidi's latest thing is just a publicity stunt.

Miley's latest getup and the gesture accompanying it: hot? No. Skanky and age-inappropriate? Yes.

RE: Fergie - There's a scene in an old Clint Eastwood western where a guy tearfully pleads that he was drunk when he committed his crime. Then, the hangman opens the trapdoor.

nonsensical2001, the salient difference is that the Duchess hung herself.

Er, hanged herself?

No mention of Dennis Hopper's passing anywhere in Celebritology posts since he passed away this weekend? Why not? I realize it was a holiday weekend but I definitely think he deserves just as much time/space as Gary Coleman.

RIP, DH.

JLF, Terry Gross reruns an old interview with DH on NPR's "Fresh Air" today, which I imagine you'd enjoy.
