Another Blog Bites it....

You know the economy, or sukonomy as it is appropriate, is bad when gossip sites have to consolidate or shut down. the latest casualty is Defamer:

Defamer is indeed going out of business. Well, sort of. The brand is folded into Gawker, which, too, apparently thought we had crossed a line — one of the bottom variety, far below where our sister blogs' own irreverence has found and sustained viability. There are many reasons for that, not the least of which is their ability to corner niche markets on wit, cynicism, insight and disdain.

Follow this link for the hilarious Defamer Dictionary.

I am sorry to see them go, I shall miss their unique west coast flavor of snark! Defamer, you shall be missed.

I know....

I said I was gonna take time off, but I found tidbits for you! I'm really tired and beatup tho....This is how it feels to have hypothyroidism: It's like an achy, awful hangover that no amount of sleep can cure and you just can't shake it.

On the other hand, we have the styling skeleton, Rachel Zoe, who seems to be getting hit hard with the economy! What, celebs are trying to dress themselves? Maybe they are just sick of being associated with a bag of bones. From A socialite's life:

A spy at the pre-Oscar Weinstein Co./Valentino party told Page Six that they spotted Rachel Zoe "flipping out over the phone and screaming at the top of her lungs" at L.A.'s Andaz Hotel.

Rumor has it that the nutrition-deficient stylist is super stressed because her new status as a budding reality star is reportedly "interfering with her styling work."

Reportedly, Rachel lost Debra Messing as a client as a result. However, the Bravo star's publicist denies that Cameron Diaz dropped Zoe as her stylist. "Despite anything else she does, [Rachel] is a stylist first and foremost. She's still holding people's trains and sewing them into their dress. That's her priority."

As well it should be. These celebrities certainly can't make themselves look skeletal all by themselves.


She's hiding something

It's the way she acts and speaks, contempt for her mother and the way her face moves. The Octo-bitch is hiding something. Wish I knew what it was. from Radar online:

Jump Here for the latest interview.

and for the latest:

Attorney Gloria Allred has been granted permission by Denis Baudin, an ex-boyfriend of Nadya Suleman, who donated sperm on three different occasions, and has said he could be the father of all fourteen children to release the following statement, "Denis Baudin is in support of any measure, resources dedicated to the care and support of Ms. Suleman and her children including Angels in Waiting."

As has previously reported, Angels In Waiting has offered 24/7 care for the octuplets, the other six children, and Nadya, but that offer expires at midnight tonight. Gloria tells us that she hasn't yet heard from Nadya.

I'd like to leave you with something better to contemplate because


So here is the hypnotic groove of JayZ for your indulgence


O Rly?

Color me surprised (insert eye roll here)....Holly and Criss that douche split! from gossip rocks:

Now you see them, now you don't.

The original Girl Next Door, Holly Madison, has amicably parted ways with her Mindfreak beau, Criss Angel, after nearly four months of dating.

"She was very much in love with him, and they're still very close friends," a source close to the former couple told E! News, adding that the decision to split was mutual.

"It was a conflict of schedules. She felt she couldn't devote 100 percent of her time in Vegas and his career at the expense of her career and her goals."

The 29-year-old Madison and 41-year-old Angel had been cohabitating at the magician's Sin City abode since December, but the Playboy pinup recently moved back in with family.

The two were first spotted cozying up last October, shortly after Madison and Hugh Hefner had called it quits. While Angel and Madison at first claimed to be just good friends, they quickly went public with their romance, moved in together and even—a first for Madison—met each others' parents.

Despite news of the split, the couple's relationship has showed no signs of outward strain recently.

On Valentine's Day, the pair was spotted smooching it up in Sin City, and just last month they vacationed in Cabo San Lucas, along with fellow reality star Paula Abdul.

Robert Dowdy Juror Post!

yes I stole that. whatever. from

Oscar nominee ROBERT DOWNEY JR. is expanding his theatrical repertoire - by writing a stage musical.

The star, who lost out on a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award on Sunday (22Feb09), has revealed he has been working on the project for a number of years, and is tirelessly trying to get it finished.

Downey Jr says, "I'm a little busy right now. Every two years or so I'm saying that I am going to do a big musical; I'm just tired of saying that I am going to do stuff that sounds cool. If I'm going to do something, I'm going to do it."

And he insists he isn't just trying to cash in on his fame and recent career resurgence - because he has always considered himself to be a musician.

The Iron Man star adds, "It's always lame when somebody gets really famous and they say they're going to be a singer. I'm like, 'You've already won the lottery, so take it easy, moron!' But I'm also a composer and I sing what I write."

Downey, Jr has already tasted a little musical success - his 2004 album The Futurist was well received and he also recorded a Christmas album with Vonda Shepard.
