#BrandiGlanville : #AdrienneMaloof ‘Did A Nice Job Of Ruining Her Own Family’

"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" cast member Brandi Glanville has a new war on her hands, and this time it’s not with country music star LeAnn Rimes; it’s with "RHBH" co-star Adrienne Maloof.

Revealing that she was shocked to find herself on the cover of Us Weekly this morning with Adrienne, accompanied by the headlines, “Brandi Tried To Destroy My Family," and “The truth behind the explosive fight that TV couldn’t show! And why Brandi used Adrienne’s surrogacy secret against her,” Brandi is fighting back.

“I’ve never tried to ruin anyone’s family. I was simply protecting my own,” Brandi tells The Huffington Post. “I think Adrienne did a nice job of ruining her own family when she accused her husband of child abuse. She did this, not me.”

Maloof did not respond to calls for comment.

‘Octomom’ #NadyaSuleman On #Porn Award: ‘What An Honor’ To Win

Octomom Porn

Nadya "Octomom" Suleman will make her return to stripping after signing up for welfare for the second time. But that isn’t the reason the famous mom of 14 children is celebrating. She’s celebrating because this week she won the Best Celebrity Sex Tape category at the Adult Video News Awards, the "Oscars of Porn."

"Seriously, it has not sunk in yet," Suleman tells The Huffington Post. "This is fantastic — what an honor. Hopefully, this award will open doors to more opportunities. I’m proud I did this movie. It helped me grow into a woman. ‘Octomom Home Alone’ is a true reflection of my intimate side. I am excited to have the award. I am trying to figure out where I will put it."

Next up for her is topless stripping from Feb. 14 to 16 at T’s Lounge in West Palm Beach, Fla., a venue that sued her last year for breach of contact after she pulled out of a performance. But will any more X-rated movies be in her future?

"As of right now, no," Suleman says. "But you never know."

#JenniferLopez ‘s People Cover Timed Suspiciously Close to #AmericanIdol #Premiere, Insiders Say

Jennifer Lopez People

Jennifer Lopez graces the cover of this week’s People magazine — the same day the new season of "American Idol" debuts, with Mariah Carey filling her role at the judges’ table. Is the timing coincidental — or is Jenny from the Block making sure we don’t forget about her?

“Nothing J.Lo does is by accident,” one former member of her team tells The Huffington Post. “You don’t get a career the size of hers unless everything is planned and mapped out very carefully.”

In the past, J.Lo and her team worked carefully for her album "J.Lo" to be No. 1 on the Billboard 200 the same week that her film "The Wedding Planner" was No. 1 at the box office. Scheduling is no small matter in the world of J.Lo, it seems.

“Jennifer hasn’t done a weekly tell-all interview and photo shoot for a while, which is what makes this cover’s timing so suspicious. Everyone knows there’s been a rivalry between Jennifer and Mariah [Carey] in the past, and it looks like it’s still very much alive.”

"Jennifer Lopez is doing the press rounds to promote her new film ‘Parker,’ in theaters Jan. 25. She speaks very highly of ‘American Idol’ (see page 59) in the People interview," a People spokesperson tells The Huffington Post

Publicists for Lopez and Carey did not return calls for comment.

#JoanRivers: #KellyOsbourne ‘s ‘Feelings Get Hurt Very Easily’

Joan Rivers Kelly Osbourne

Lady Gaga isn’t backing down after herback-and-forth with Kelly and Sharon Osbourne last week, responding to the open letter Sharon posted. And neither is "Fashion Police" star Joan Rivers or the E! network.

“Kelly talked about Gaga fans in January and now she is responding. She is the slowest reader in the world,” Joan tells The Huffington Post. “I think she is doing all this to get attention as her tour isn’t selling. Everything this woman does is about getting attention. I think she is a genius.”

All the drama started when Kelly said she thought Gaga might be pregnant because of her noticeable weight gain at the 2012 Grammys. After that, Kelly started getting nasty messages from Gaga’s fans. Finally, Kelly told the U.K.’s Fabulous magazine, “Lady Gaga’s fans are the worst.”

Since then, mom Sharon has written an open letter to Gaga.

“The only thing that really upsets me is that Kelly is an open wound. Her feelings get hurt very easily. She’s a sweet person, she never wants to say anything bad about anyone,” reveals Joan. “She takes everything so personally. But, at ‘Fashion Police,’ we are like a family, and if you mess with one of us you mess with all of us. If Gaga wants to keep this up then fine, it’s more publicity for all of us, but she needs to pick on someone her own size.”

“We value strong points of view on our air and greatly appreciate the clever commentary and opinions of our ‘Fashion Police’ team,” an E! Spokesperson tells The Huffington Post.

#JoanRivers On #LadyGaga ‘s #FashionPolice Diss: ‘For God’s Sake, Calm Down’

Joan Rivers Lady Gaga

When Lady Gaga told Kelly Osbourne to stop being negative on "Fashion Police," she must have known the show’s star, Joan Rivers, wasn’t going to sit by and let her show or her friend Kelly be attacked. Now the comedy legend tells The Huffington Post that Gaga should watch out.

"I think this will hurt Gaga a little in the long term. It’s brought up again the fact she loves animals and wears fur," says Joan. "’Fashion Police’ is funny. Gaga, of all people, should know that. She worked the same little clubs I did in the Village. She has gay followers and she doesn’t know funny? For God’s sake, calm down. I think that Gaga, who is making hundreds of millions of dollars a year, with a bad nose, should get on her knees and thank God.”

The show’s executive producer, Melissa Rivers, who spoke to Kelly just after Gaga’s open letter, says Gaga is the ultimate mean girl.

"I’m disappointed. We are all in the entertainment business. When people say our show bullies people, I get very annoyed. Our show is about fashion and comedy. No one is saying someone is a bad person. When they make millions of dollars a picture and we don’t like one of the dresses they get for free, lighten up. Stop taking yourself so seriously," says Melissa. "Kelly is such a love. When she called me yesterday, I told her not to answer back to Gaga. I love the fact her mom, Sharon, spoke out. Gaga has so much power and is such an icon and can flip a switch and have everyone turn on someone — that’s the ultimate mean girl."

"Everyone in showbiz is out to get attention, with the exception of Kim Kardashian," says Joan. "Who are we all talking about today? Gaga. She is a very smart businesswoman; the only thing I’m upset about is that Gaga didn’t mention ‘Joan and Melissa’ returns on WETV Feb. 23 at 9 p.m. I don’t want to get into a fight with Gaga, but if her mother sends me a letter, my mother is going to come back from the grave and scare the s*** out of her customers in her restaurant. Because of Gaga’s contribution to fashion, I’m sitting in herring panties."

#BritneySpears Quit #XFactor Before Getting Fired, Insiders Say

Britney Spears X Factor

Britney Spears isn’t going to appear on "The X Factor," baby, one more time. The pop star will be leaving the series after just one season as a judge. But now insiders are asking, did she quit or was she pushed out?

“The addition of Britney never brought with it the ratings everyone had hoped it would,” one insider tells The Huffington Post. “She got a lot of buzz initially but it never translated into viewers. When you are getting paid $15 million, producers care about your ability to get people to watch.”

Original "X Factor" judge L.A. Reid has already confirmed he will not be returning for another season, saying he wants to focus on running his music label. Similarly, Britney’s camp is saying she won’t be returning because she wants to focus on her music career.

“No final decision had been made, but the likelihood that she would be invited back was not very good. Her people knew this and wanted to get out before she was pushed,” reveals one industry veteran. “Producers love the guessing game of who will be a new judge. It was nice of them to let Britney’s PR get ahead of the game and seem to leave on her own accord.”

Sound familiar? After original judge Nicole Scherzinger was fired last January, stories appeared saying she too was leaving the show “to focus on her music career."

A request to Fox for comment was not returned.

#HeidiMontag #SpencerPratt Earned $500,000 For ‘Celebrity Big Brother,’ Says Source

Heidi Montag Spencer Pratt

To everyone’s surprise, Heidi Montag and husband Spencer Pratt were not the first ones to be voted out of the U.K.’s
"Celebrity Big Brother." But it doesn’t make any financial difference to the couple when they get eliminated — they’ve already been paid.

“They earned $500,000 from the show, for basically one week’s work,” says a U.K. show insider. “Each of the stars on the show have negotiated different rates. With Heidi and Spencer they got two for the price of one; however, it’s still a good deal for very little work. It’s unlikely they will win the whole thing.”

Before the eviction vote, Spencer told Big Brother in the diary room that he believed his U.K. fans would save him despite being nominated by all 10 of their celebrity fellow housemates.

“No one in England had any idea who they were or what they did,” one London agent tells The Huffington Post. “But they are so barmy they have won over the public. The Brits love oddballs; don’t forget, Liza Minnelli’s ex-husband became a star in the U.K. after going on a reality show!”

Heidi and Spencer became famous after starring on MTV’s monster hit "The Hills." Since then things have not gone so well. They admit they have lost over a million dollars and been bumped out of the reality-TV spotlight by Courtney Stodden and the Honey Boo Boo family. But maybe they have found a new way to capture the public’s attention again — at least, the British public.

#LadyGaga Should Copy #Madonna ‘s Style More, Says #ChristopherCiccone

Lady Gaga has been accused of “borrowing" a lot from Madonna. However, former artistic director Christopher Ciccone — the Material Girl’s brother — says Gaga made a huge mistake not following his sister’s style.

“You have to remember what really made Madonna really popular is that girls could dress like her. You can’t dress like Gaga, only on Halloween perhaps. It’s a really big part of being a performer — getting your fans to follow you. You have to evolve. At one point with Madonna, it was time for the tights to go,” Christopher tells The Huffington Post. “What I would do with Gaga is stream it all down and get rid of all the crap and make her a real person. It’s cool on some level, but when you start out massively way over the top, there is nowhere to go. You get stuck there and you disconnect from the audience. You become this freak on the stage.”

Christopher, who designed the stage for Madonna’s "Blonde Ambition" and "Girlie Show" tours, is now designing shoes, but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t like to get his hands on another pop star.

“I would love to overhaul Kelly Clarkson. I would certainly give her a style. She needs something,” Chris says. “The girl’s got an amazing voice; it’s just the girl comes onstage dowdy and there is no particular look to her. She could do so much better. I don’t know if she doesn’t care and that’s fine, I just feel there is so much more.”
