 "In Touch Weekly" posted a picture of Taylor's cleavage from the "People's Choice Awards", and something that could be a surgical scar is visible on one of her breasts. They are suggesting she got implants. It’s my understanding that implants are done through the nipple, armpit, or underneath. I think it’s just a sticky to hold her dress tight.

The "Star" tabloid claims LINDSAY LOHAN is paying her bills by working as an ESCORT.  That doesn't mean she's having sex for money, necessarily . . . just that rich men are paying her for her company.  Her dad, MICHAEL LOHAN, says, quote, "She would NEVER do that and it NEVER happened!"

BRENT MUSBURGER makes no apologies for commenting on Miss Alabama KATHERINE WEBB'S attractiveness during the BCS Title game.-Asked if he thought his comments were inappropriate, Brent said NO. As for ESPN's apology, he said, quote, "Individuals say what individuals say.  And corporations do what corporations do.  Obviously, they felt it was the right thing for them to do."  Speaking of Katherine . . . "Inside Edition" has tapped her as a correspondent for next month's Super Bowl in New Orleans.

Jeremy Renner was allegedly overheard at the "Golden Globes" telling Eva Longoria that he's going to be a dad.  The mother is an ex-girlfriend he wasn't too serious with, but he's still excited about the kid. Jeremy played Hawkeye in "The Avengers".

It sounds like JENNIFER LOPEZ is finally giving up on winning a Grammy . . . and moving on to an OSCAR.She says, quote, "I think everybody that has ever taken acting seriously would love to be recognized in that way.  Of course!  Why not?"-It sounds like she's been planning her acceptance speech for YEARS.  She says, quote, "It changes every so often over the years . . . Different people, different things."

The Livestrong Foundation issued a statement yesterday saying, quote, "We expect [LANCE ARMSTRONG] to be completely truthful and forthcoming in his interview and with all of us in the cancer community.  We expect we will have more to say at that time.  Regardless, we are charting a strong, independent course forward that is focused on helping people overcome financial, emotional and physical challenges related to cancer."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterday, two formerly close associates of Lance spoke out against him. First up was Lance's former right-hand man MIKE ANDERSON, who hopes Lance goes to JAIL.  He said, quote, "He is a very calculating individual.  Everything that he does is with forethought and for his own benefit.-"He introduced a sort of corruption to cycling's governing body that is very American:  loads of money and PR.-"Lance Armstrong is a false image created by himself. He's inundated the media for years to control the public's perception of him.”--But Anderson says the corruption doesn't end with Lance . . . quote, "There are guys still being protected.  For a change it's Lance being dragged through the mud but there are others and every last penny those guys have earned in the sport they have gotten fraudulently."He added, quote, "There were guys behind the scenes who built him up, who sold that lie to the public.  It was a concerted effort to make a pot of money, and those of us who called him out were destroyed."-Lance's former teammate FRANKIE ANDREU can speak directly about the way Lance destroyed people's lives to protect his image and his empire.He says, quote, "For my wife and I, we've been attacked and ripped apart by Lance and all of his people, and all his supporters repeatedly for a long time . . . And it's not only us, he's ruined a lot of people's lives."

 If you followed college football this year . . . particularly Notre Dame . . . you've probably heard of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o, who had an amazing season, and was the Heisman Trophy runner-up.He did it after losing his grandmother . . . and his girlfriend . . . within six hours back in September.  His girlfriend, 22-year-old Lennay Kekua, had been in a serious car accident, and then had subsequently been diagnosed with leukemia.-Or that's the sad, inspirational story that he shared with the media . . . and commented on throughout the remainder of the season.-Manti's grandmother DID pass away . . . there's a record of that . . . but as Deadspin.com discovered, there's no record of his girlfriend's death . . . because there's no record that she EVER EVEN EXISTED IN THE FIRST PLACE. The site broke it all down in an exhaustively comprehensive report, where NOTHING added up.  Basically, everyone just ASSUMED Lennay existed . . . because Manti said she did . . . but no one actually had any proof that she was real.-The case against Lennay's existence was AIRTIGHT:  In addition to their being no record of her death, there was no record of her funeral . . . her accident . . . her hospital stays . . . her birth . . . or her alleged graduation from Stanford.-Stanford had no record of her at all . . . and neither did the Internet . . . aside from a few Twitter and Instagram accounts.  And in those, the photos of Lennay were actually pictures of another girl on Facebook . . . a girl who had never met Manti.He's currently preparing for the NFL Draft, where he's expected to go in the first round. he released a statement admitting that . . . he was DUPED, and that someone had played a "sick joke" on him.  He said, quote, "This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time . . .-"I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online.  We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her.--"To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone's sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating . . . I hope that people can understand how trying and confusing this whole experience has been."

Notre Dame backed him up . . . releasing a statement saying that Manti and his family had come to them on December 26th, and explained he had been, quote, "the victim of what appears to be a hoax . . .-"In which someone using the fictitious name Lennay Kekua apparently ingratiated herself with Manti and then conspired with others to lead him to believe she had tragically died of leukemia."-The athletic director says Manti had discovered the scam weeks before that.  Manti told him that when he was at the ESPN awards, which aired December 6th, someone called him from Lennay's phone number.--He explains, quote, "When he answered it, it was a person whose voice sounded like the same voice he had talked to, who told him that she was, in fact, not dead."--Naturally, this raises a TON of questions:  For starters, Manti and his family have insinuated that he not only talked to her at length on the phone, but that they'd also met in person.  However, it's unclear if that happened . . . or how it could've.What's the motive?  Why would someone spend over a year playing this elaborate, cold prank on Manti?  What would they have to gain, that would be worth all that time and effort?

 We know that plenty of Hollywood stars rely on plastic surgery, injections or at the very least spray tans to look so perfect all the time. So it's refreshing to have a celeb actually admit it out loud (instead of pretending those forehead lines just erased themselves).Kelly Ripa is the poster girl for cosmetic treatment honesty, copping to her own enhancements time and time again. But in the February issue of Elle mag, she lets us in on a Botox secret even we didn't know:The spin class is punishing, but Ripa seems to outperform the twentysomethings manically pedaling around her and emerges looking almost like she did when she arrived. "It’s the Botox," she says, adding that she sometimes gets it in her armpits to avoid sweating.Armpits? Ouch. We knew about Ripa's forehead Botox, which she gets "as much as possible," but we didn't realize there were just so many body parts to inject. The "LIVE!" host also tells Elle:"Every seven months or so my eyelid skin rests on my eyelashes. So I feel like it makes my makeup artist’s life easier, and it makes my eyes look a little more open on TV, which is where I happen to work right now."

NICOLE KIDMAN had to pee on ZAC EFRON in the movie "The Paperboy", and she had no problem doing it.  She says, quote, "I just don't find urination shocking . . . But then, I don't find a lot of things shocking!  Violence is a lot more shocking than sex . . . sex is primal.  I felt shy singing in 'Moulin Rouge!', but peeing . . . no, not shy."

SARAH JESSICA PARKER'S scenes have been cut from the movie about legendary "Deep Throat" star LINDA LOVELACE.  But not because of anything she did wrong.-Sarah played feminist GLORIA STEINEM in the movie.  But a decision was made to end the movie in 1980, several years before Lovelace met Steinem.  Thus, the scenes had to go.

 

 

 

 

Former "Diff'rent Strokes" star Conrad Bain died of natural causes on Monday.  He was 89.  He played Phillip Drummond on "Diff'rent Strokes", and before that, he was Dr. Arthur Harmon, the neighbor guy on "Maude".

A promotional picture for The CW's "The Carrie Diaries" features ANNASOPHIA ROBB standing in front of the New York City skyline.  The problem is:  The show is set in 1984 New York . . . and the Twin Towers are MISSING from the shot. The entire show is set there, so obviously it would've been a lot of work to digitally insert the World Trade Center in every scene where it would've been, but some people say it's LAZY of the show to completely ignore the Towers.

You will never see CARRIE UNDERWOOD have an embarrassing upskirt incident.  She explains, quote, "Underneath every skirt, every dress, I'm wearing shorts.  So that everyone in the world knows, if I ever fell down, nobody would get a peek at anything."

While talking to Entertainment Tonight (via UsWeekly) about stuff, Nancy O'Dell asked her if she's ever worried about Eddie cheating. LeAnn said this: "Everyone else would think I am a liar if I didn't say yes, and I have at times. It's definitely creeped into my mind, as it would anyone's. I think we've been very honest and open with that to each other, and our conversations about it have only made me understand how much he actually cares, as much as I do, about being faithful to each other. Where I'm at in my relationship with Eddie, that is not a worry that's in the front of my mind."

There is a raging war among 3 Las Vegas properties to snag Britney Spears as their headliner ... TMZ has learned.TMZ broke the story last week ... Britney was in serious negotiations with one of the Caesars properties to perform several nights a week on a regular basis, as well as make regular appearances at several clubs and pool events.  Well, we just found out ... since we posted our story two other properties -- at least one not associated with Caesars -- have thrown their hat in the ring.There's a story out that Britney has already inked a $200 million, 2-year deal with Caesars.  WRONG.  No deal has been signed.But as we reported .... sources connected with the negotiations tell us ... Britney could get $100 mil a year and maybe more.  That's what Celine Dion made and Britney could be an even bigger draw.

Bill Clinton joked about Hillary Clinton's health -- and future romances -- Tuesday at the Clinton Foundation's Health Matters conference in Palm Springs in response to questions about his wife's political future.The former president said that his wife, who was hospitalized recently with a blood clot in her brain, has "always been very, very healthy" -- so healthy, in fact, that he only sees himself as her first husband."She's still got time to have three more husbands after me," he said. "I think she'll live to be 120. And I always know that she's thinking about that whenever I am stubborn about something, in our constant quest at my self-improvement." He also joked that Hillary refers to him as "her first husband," but got serious when discussing her future political plans."My advice is that she should rest up and decide what she wants to do with the rest of her life, and whether she thinks this is the right thing for her and for America and for the world," he said.
