In her upcoming memoir, “A Helluva High Note,” former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi writes about her successful career in the music business.
But it’s DioGuardi’s personal past that is getting attention right now, as excerpts of the book have been released and they focus on a pair of traumatic experiences: molestation and date rape.
Of the former, Kara details the repeated actions taken by a family friend’s son when she was 11 years old. He was in his late teens and: “On one particular day, he took me into the back shed of his house and put his hands all over my breasts and vagina. IMore >
(HMG Celebrity News) - Are people serious calling Eva Longoria’s little tease on Letterman a wardrobe malfunction? The “Desperate Housewives” star appeared with Letterman on Wednesday to promote her new cookbook, “Eva’s Kitchen,” and was dressed to thrill.
“I wore a tuxedo for you,” she told Letterman, to which he replied, “That’s only part of a tuxedo.”
The outfit was conveniently unbuttoned to allow her shirtless chest to pop out just enough that Letterman was obviously distracted. After Longoria feigned shock at coming unbuttoned, it prompted Letterman to comment, “We’re going to loseMore >
Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke recently cracked us up with a Tweet about being fingered by a TSA agent. But this story is no laughing matter.
Burke is breaking her silence on being molested by a family friend when she was five years old – a horror she says she relives daily, especially lately.
Her tormentor is now out of prison and roaming the streets, adding to her anxiety. “It was lots of touching,” Burke recalls of her molester.
The guy was a retired mailman who would often pick Cheryl up from school and do odd jobs around her family’s house in Atherton, Calif.
“He would pullMore >
Reliable sources have confirmed that Melissa Etheridge really is dating Linda Wallem, the creator of Nurse Jackie and former best friend of ex-wife Tammy Lynn Michaels.
That’s awkward. But it’s not nearly as awkward as the way in which Michales learned that Etheridge was being unfaithful, as explained in a new poem Tammy has posted on her website, titled “speak, spread walk the talk.” It tells the story of a mis-labeled box of dildos.

(HMG Celebrity News) – As part of an appeal to overturn her 26-year sentence, Amanda Knox has appeared in an Italian court for a key decision on whether a review of the evidence used to convict her of Meredith Kercher’s murder will be allowed. An Italian court is weighing the merits of an independent forensic review of evidence that led to the murder conviction of the 23-year-old American and her Italian ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, also jailed for the murder. Knox and Sollecito were found guilty in the Umbrian hilltop town last year of stabbing the 21-year-old British student to deathMore >
On The Real Housewives of Atlanta this week, the women seemed more delusional than ever. And that’s saying A LOT, we know.

Delusion seemed to be wafting in the air this week in Atlanta!
Actor Michael Brea gave a chilling interview to The New York Daily News today.
The small-time thespian, who was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly killing his mother with a three-foot sword, opened up to the newspaper and said “I didn’t kill her. I killed the demon inside her.”
Before ending the life of 55-year old Yannick Brea, Michael said a number of visions gave him no choice.
“I was sleeping in my bedroom. God came above my bed and reached his arm to me. I said, ‘God, is my time on earth over?’ I heard a voice say, ‘Yes Michael, today is your last day.’”

(HMG Celebrity News) – One could call this a good old fashioned food fight between culinary stars Eric Ripert and Gordon Ramsay, except that it could revolve around the suicide of a New Jersey chef. Three years after Ramsay belittled him on his reality show “Kitchen Nightmares,” Joseph Cerniglia, the owner of Campania in Fair Lawn, took a death plunge into the Hudson River last week.Perhaps fueling “Top Chef judge Ripert’s ire, is the fact that Cerniglia, who leaves behind three young children and a wife, is not the first former Ramsay charge to take his own life. Rachel Brown, a chef More >

Shelley played Haziz in the 2005 comedy. During opening statements the prosecution painted a grim scene of the crime in which Malil allegedly caught Kendra Beebe drinking wine with another man on her back porch, the prosecution said:
“With the casual familiarity of a close friend Shelley Malil walked up to Kendra Beebe and stabbed her in the torso.”
After the other man wrestled away the knife, MalilMore >
We have bad news and good news, THG readers. First, the bad:
This season of The Real Housewives of New York City is over. But, now, the good: our reality show correspondent sucked it up and watched Bethenny Frankel’s spin-off show last night instead! She’s filed the following report on Bethenny Getting Married?
Watching this show is a totally different experience than watching another one of the Real Housewives shows.
If you watched The Bachelorette Monday, you couldn’t help but hate (or love to hate) the Canadian hothead with the big mouth and used car salesman hair.
It was apparent to everyone – poor weatherman Jonathan Novack, Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky and millions of viewers – that Craig M. is a sociopath.
Still, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t fun to watch.
Ousted during the rose ceremony, Craig M. (for McKinnon, or Machismo) says there are no hard feelings, as he didn’t feel “a natural connection” anyway.
The Toronto native reflected on his short but memorable stint on The Bachelorette on aMore >
