Olympic Hero – Michael Phelps Caught Smoking Bong – UPDATE

Michael Phelps has acknowledged that the photo showing him smoking marijuana from a bong is real.

He released this statement:

I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment. I’m 23 years old and despite the successes I’ve had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again.

So far no word on what the advertisers that he represents thinks. Do you think they will “let the incident go”??



14-times Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps does not only swim like a fish but apparently smokes like a chimney. Michael, won a record eight gold medals for swimming at the Beijing games last summer, to become the greatest competitor in Olympic history.

According to News of the World, on November 6, weeks after his Beijing triumph, 23-year-old Phelps surprised students at the University Of South Carolina in Columbia by showing up unannounced at a house party.

He was visiting Jordan Matthews, a girl he was secretly seeing who was a student there.

A source revealed: “Michael came to visit Jordan but ended up just getting wasted every night.”
“Every girl wanted a piece of him and every guy wanted to be his best buddy. He couldn’t get enough of all the attention.”

Phelps’ aides went into a panic over the story and offered News of the world a raft of extraordinary incentives not to run the bong picture.

This photo could destroy his golden boy image and lucrative career.
But who needs fame and fortune when you have good friends that love to share their photos.

Do you think Michael should be judged for blowing off some steam (or smoke) after training endlessly to accomplish what no other person has ever been able to accomplish? That would be winning eight gold medals at one Olympic game, not holding a bong hit for 64 seconds.

Ashton Kutcher vs. Perez Hilton on Twitter!!

I have to admit to something – I have been reading Twitter quite a bit lately. When I first heard about Twitter I could not understand why anyone would want to post their every move or even better why anyone would want to read it!!

After reading Ashton Kutcher’s rant on Twitter (about his neighbor’s annoying construction noise) and Demi Moore’s sweet responses to him on Twitter, I can not stop reading his updates. It’s like that accident you can’t help but look at – you’re eyes just keeping going back there.

Anyway – I was once again seeing what Ashton was up to (we’re friends – he just doesn’t know it yet) when I noticed that he and Perez Hilton are arguing via Twitter. How funny is that. Ashton is upset about Perez’s website slamming his step-daughter, Rumer’s, appearance. I find it a bit hard to read Twitter, as I am a newbie but Check out the conversation below: Continue reading

Lindsay Lohan is Not a Woman of Importance


Lindsay Lohan, originally slated to star in the movie, ‘A Woman of No Importance’, has been replaced. Lindsay was signed on to star in the movie back in 2006 when she backed out of the movie to enter rehab.

Fast forward, three years later – Lindsay is sober but unemployed. The starring role is now being played by Amanda Seyfried, the star of Mamma Mia.

Lindsay doesn’t have any movies lined up – do you think Hollywood will give her another chance?? They did give Britney another chance and look how far she has come.

Did The Bachelor, Jason, Lead One of the Girls On??


The recently jilted, Megan Parris, called People to discuss what we didn’t see on the latest episode of The Bachelor and how she feels that she had been led on by Jason.

Wow. The show hasn’t even ended yet and the drama is already beginning.

According to Megan, her last conversation with Jason was left on the cutting room floor. She expressed to Jason that she was stressed out and wasn’t as secure as the others as far as her position in the house. Jason assured her that they had plenty of time to get to know each other and that he still wanted her there. That’s why she seemed confused upon her exit. Continue reading

Britney’s Dad Gets Restraining Order Against Ex-Boyfriend and Ex-Manager


Britney Spear’s father has obtained new restraining orders against Sam Lutfi (her former manager), Adnan Ghalib (her ex-boyfriend)
and a lawyer.

People Magazine reports, Spears’s father says her cell phone records show “numerous telephone conversations” and text messages with her ex-manager Sam Lutfi and former boyfriend, paparazzo Adnan Ghalib.

“[Britney] innocently informs [Ghalib] of her destinations and he then arranges for paparazzi to meet and film her to his financial benefit,” Jamie Spears says. “[He] is harmful to Ms. Spears and to her recovery.”

The restraining orders forbid Lutfi and Ghalib from contacting Spears or coming within 250 yards of her, her property or family members.

Britney has really turned her life around over the last year – a platinum album and a huge concert tour – let’s hope she continues on this great path.
