Alec Baldwin’s Talk Show Cancelled

Alec BaldwinAlec Baldwin's talk show has been officially axed.

The 55-year-old actor's late night MSNBC series Up Late has been cancelled after claims the former 30 Rock actor made a homophobic slur against a photographer earlier this month. A spokesperson for Alec and MSNBC issued the following statement to UsMagazine.com: "We are jointly confirming that Up Late will not continue on MSNBC. This is a mutual parting and we wish Alec all the best."

The star reportedly called a paparazzo a "c**ksucking f*g" hours after winning a court case against his stalker in New York, but he later insisted he had called the man a "fat head." An insider told the New York Post's Page Six that executives were not impressed by his behavior and decided to cancel his show on Tuesday. "The decision has been made. He's gone. The [parent company] Comcast guys have decided. Word is spreading through the building," the source said.

The chat show was suspended from the Friday night slot two weeks ago and Alec admitted in a blog post at the time that the future of his talk show was unclear. "Whether the show comes back at all is an issue right now," he wrote.


VIDEO: YouTube Star Sings on Ellen, Talks to Lady Gaga

Imagine your mother texting you at school to let you know that you’ll be appearing on Ellen.

That’s exactly what happened yesterday to Greyson Michael Chance - the young boy who has rocked the Internet with his Lady Gaga cover.

After seeing his YouTube video, host Ellen DeGeneres immediately flew out the 12-year-old - apparently he’s not 13 - to not only perform “Paparazzi” on national TV, but to speak on the phone with “Miss Gaga” herself.

I can only imagine how low his classmates’ jaws will drop now.

Blake Lively on the Gossip Girl set

Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, and Ed Westwick were snapped up by the paparazzi on the set of Gossip Girl recently, donning some appropriate attire for the cold weather—both on and off set.

In one picture (seen after the jump), Meester is actually caught red-handed wearing Ugg boots! A Gossip Girl star wearing UGG BOOTS?! What on Earth was she (or her stylist) thinking? She ought to be fined.

Lively, on the other hand, rivals Emma Watson with her Burberry wear. Also, did Westwick and Lively cutely plan the motorcycle jackets together?

MTV Hills Crew Terrorizes Hollywood Residents

No peace and quiet in Hollywood!

MTV cannot simply settle for irking television viewers like myself with their silly reality shows. They apparently have to frustrate poor Hollywood resident civilians, too.

Filming their prized “reality” stint, The Hills cast and crew have wreaked havoc among their Hollywood neighbors.

As if the unwanted paparazzi crews are not enough of a nuisance, the filming crew apparently takes up most of the street with their equipment trucks, leaving bright lights shining on the house until late at night when the socialites are not even home!

Not surprisingly, despite these and many more claims, an MTV spokesperson defends the production: “MTV is in accordance with all required production permits, and is working with the city of Los Angeles to assist it with neighborhood concerns that have been raised.”

They sure are good liars over there at MTV.

Britney Spears: Playing with Paparazzi?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Gossip, Rumors,

Britney Spears and Adnan share a kissMaybe you’ve noticed that every story starts out with a question - but believe me, it’s not by design. Everything she does these days seems a little…well, questionable.

The pop star is continuing her decline into weirdness, still speaking in an English-like lilt and having fun at the expense of the paparazzi. A video of Brit has surfaced on the ‘Net, showing the star speaking with filmers from inside her car. In it, she claims not to know . (He’s the chap who was in the pregnancy test-shopping video, the one who was by her side when she put on her at an LA boutique, the one who’s name has been in the press almost permanently since he’s been with Brit.)

“I don’t know who that is,” Spears answered when a photographer asked her about Adnan. On his Web site, however, Adnan says he hopes to in touch with Brit when he gets back to town in the next few days. Is Spears just pulling the leg of the paparazzi who hound her…or is her mental and emotional state much more precarious than even the media realized?

The Rise And Fall Of Britney Spears: Who’s To Blame?

Posted by David Onda Categories: Editorial, Features, Gossip, Internet, News,

The Evolution of Britney Spears

Forget about and . The year 2007 belonged to . And not in a, “Hey, Britney Spears is the sexiest women alive and sold a lot of records” kind of way. No, it’s more like, “Hey, Britney Spears split from her back-up dancer husband, had her disgusting hoo-ha and c-section scar plastered all over the internet, shaved all her hair off, lost custody of her children and had a comeback performance/album that bombed.” Yeah, she’s had that kind of year. And frankly, I’m pretty freakin’ tired of seeing her face every time I turn on the TV or go online and having to listen to every step of the “Britney custody saga” reported as legitimate news.

This woman is a disaster. Let’s make that point very clear from the outset. She is clearly a very unstable woman in need of some very serious help, and she’s not getting it. And now that it’s being reported that yet another member of the Spears clan has her tin-roof rusted, I think we need to take a step back and take a look at the big picture. Who is really to blame for the downfall of one of the biggest names and faces in, not only music, but pop culture as a whole? Who is responsible for the destruction of Britney Spears?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Drama, Showtime, Talent, Gossip,

Mary-Kate Olsen  If you’ve ever seen a tabloid photo of and wondered “what’s the deal…is she pissed or something?” – the answer is yes. The 21-year-old twin sat down recently with Entertainment Weekly to talk about the paparazzi, a problem to which all her Hollywood contemporaries (and not a single fan of hers) can relate.

Britney’s Paparazzi Rampage

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Talent, Gossip,

Britney Spears has been getting her fair share of negative media attention lately, the sort that might prompt other celebs to change their image. Not Brit. Recently, the former pop star threw a baby bottle (those pesky things just had to be good for something) at two photographers as she left a Las Vegas spa. Spears also screamed “I am going to kill you!” at one of the photographers, who is planning to sue. Both photographers work for Flynet Pictures, a company that sells photos to People and US Weekly. Spears was leaving the spa with her two children in tow, threw the bottle, and told one of the photographers she would kill him – or hire someone who would. Lawyers for Britney Spears have not yet commented on the scene.
