Shanna Moakler Punched Paris?

Shanna Moakler God forbid Paris Hilton should stay out of the headlines for even one day. The latest is an accusation by Paris that Shanna Moakler punched her at a Hollywood nightclub. The incident was said to have occurred early on Wednesday, according to police and Hilton’s publicist. Moakler’s side of the story is a little different: she said that Hilton’s ex, Stavros Niarchos, hurt her by bending her wrists and pushing her down stairs—this is according to Moakler’s publicist. Anyone else exhausted about this whole situation? Both filed police reports about their individual battery attacks, with Hilton saying that Moakler “used the most vile language” then punched her in the jaw. Moakler, former MTV reality star and Dancing With the Stars reject said she and Hilton “exchanged profanities,” then Niarchos threatened to hurt her. The police are investigating the incident and will speak with witnesses at the club to get the story. Girls, if this is all over Travis Barker, you need help.

Jack Black Good news for you Jack Black fans—Jack will be hosting the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, airing on August 31st. Said Black of his hosting gig, “Prepare yourself for a rip snortin’ humdinger.” Ah, I love a good quote, and Jack seems to sum up all of the goodness in one small quip. The awards will air live from Radio City Music Hall in New York and will include performances by Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Panic! at the Disco and Ludacris. MTV President Christina Norman had her own succinct quote about Black’s hosting credentials, stating he is the “perfect mix of comedy, rock, irreverence and star power.” Black has been in a string of films, including School of Rock and the more recent release, Nacho Libre. His band, Tenacious D, will have a semi-autobiographical film coming out on November 17th. If you are a Jack Black fan, check out his work with Tenacious D—some absolutely hilarious stuff, although not for the faint of heart. I admit some of the content makes me blush, but I can still laugh through the embarrassment.
