When asked if contestants get bonus points for singer an Aerosmith song Tyler respondsed with “Never, I look at them twice and say don’t even try it, don’t even.”

When Jenny McCarthy, who co-hosted ABC’s Rockin New Year’s Eve, kissed a man next to her in Times Square at midnight, some viewers thought a total stranger had received the shock of a lifetime.
But Paul Krepelka knew better. He had been dating Jim Carrey’s ex for about four weeks at the time.
During an appearance on Ellen that will air today, McCarthy opened up about her new boyfriend.
“He was my 5th blind date,” Jenny said. “I told everyone I know, ‘Please, I can’t pick them. As a friend, find me a man.’ So the first blind dates were these really bizarre dudes that were like, ‘Do youMore >

Tammy Lynn Michaels says ex-wife Melissa Etheridge has screwed her and the couple’s children out of money.
Etheridge, conversely, has seemingly proven in court that this isn’t the case.
THG is not here to take sides, at least not in this important matter. But we are here to give Michaels props for the most creative way to publicly air one’s grievances. Tammy Lynn has taken to her blog to post the following poem:

[HMG] – For most people, joining the Boston Celtics at age 38, thus reviving a career of almost two decades would be enough fun for one Summer. But Shaquille O’Neal is unlike most people – and the word is he just got engaged.
The lady in question is 27-year old Nicole ‘Hoopz’ Alexander – winner of the 2008 season of VH1’s reality hit, ‘I Love Money,’ and a contestant on ‘Flavor of Love.’
Sources tell the Huff Post that Shaq has spent much of the summer in Nicole’s hometown of Maryville, Tennessee. The pair even share a home in the local ‘Royal Oaks’ golfing community.
But while in St. LouisMore >
[HMG] – American Idol scours the nation for new stars aged 16-28. Which explains why they have just apparently signed 62-year old Aerosmith front-man Steven Tyler as their new judge.
Steven is seen as the latest potential replacement for the departing Ellen DeGeneres. Also in the running was Jennifer Lopez. But her demands for $20-million a year, plus her own hair and makeup team and her own “dressing room compound,” make her unlikely to land the prime job.
But sources close to the media-friendly game of musical chairs tell THR that Tyler is the new judge. Fox had no comment.

Her new album failed to land at the top of the charts during its first week of release, but Christina Aguilera still felt like a winner last night.
