Is the gluten-free girl going to wither away before our eyes?
Leaving the Delano Hotel in Miami Beach Wednesday, Miley Cyrus sported a slim gray mini dress, putting her shrinking figure on full display.
Later, she rocked a tube top and some shorts that barely covered what little of her there is left. Both outfits have sparked some concern …
In April, the last time Miley Cyrus anorexic rumors popped up, she explained on Twitter that her noticeable weight loss wasn’t from battling an eating disorder.
“For everyone calling me anorexic, I have a gluten and lactose allergy,” she said. “It’sMore >
Kate Major, Michael Lohan’s on-off girlfriend and sparring partner, was arrested early this morning in Boca Raton, Fla., for battery and resisting arrest.
The hot mess former assistant of Lindsay Lohan was booked at 3:10 AM. She was detained for resisting arrest and battering an officer with violence.
It’s unclear if MiLo was involved in this … but we wouldn’t be surprised.
The fact that there’s a permanent restraining order in place prohibiting Michael Lohan from being near Kate Major obviously wouldn’t stop him, we know that.
Major was kicked off a plane in November and arrested forMore >
Kate Gosselin is at it again. Blogging up a storm at Coupon Cabin, she’s focusing on the holidays and the joys – and stress – they bring in her latest musings.
Short story: Holidays are a pain in the a$$. Not because of Jon Gosselin, though.
“Following our mass gift opening, I know that once again this year I’ll sit on the floor for 4+ hours unpacking toys and installing batteries,” Kate writes.
“I am not exaggerating!” she adds, as if we would accuse her of that. “My hiney is sore by the time the last toy has been freed from its packaging prison.”
Not to say she isn’t in a giving mood.More >
Casey Anthony told her probation officer this week that she is unemployed, but hasn’t used any illegal drugs, according to a report released by authorities.
The 25-year-old reported to her probation officer at an undisclosed location in Florida, saying she has had no source of income during the past 30 days.
Her probation order requires her to “work diligently at a lawful occupation,” but being jobless doesn’t necessarily put Anthony in violation of her probation.
Casey was acquitted in July on charges of murdering her daughter, Caylee.

Earlier this week, Casey Anthony temporarily avoided a hearing regarding the terms of her probation stemming from a Florida check fraud conviction.
Judge Belvin Perry said he’d need more time to consider the facts before ruling on whether Casey must return home to serve probation in that case.
“I’ll be the first to admit this is not a very clear cut issue … you’ve given me a lot to think about,” Perry said, calling it “a legal maze” and “a mess”.
Anthony who was acquitted last month in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, is believed to be in Ohio and didn’t attend theMore >
When Octomom is calling you out, you need serious help.
Not that this is a new revelation for Casey Anthony (who will be seeking mental health treatment), a woman so hated that even one of the most notorious drains on society, Nadya Suleman, is sick just thinking about her.
“I would die for my children,” Octomom tells Steppin’ Out Magazine. “The whole [Casey Anthony] case makes me nauseous. It makes me sick.”
Octomom has been called a lot of things, but never a killer!
Casey was acquitted last month of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony. She was released July 17 and wentMore >

Dina Lohan says her daughter Lindsay was treated like a common criminal during her stint in jail. Not the case, says another girl in there for the same thing.
“Lindsay had a lot of special treatment while she was in jail,” Katie A., who did not give her last name, likely because she is also a drunk driving idiot, said.
“The entire jail was put on lockdown any time Lindsay left her cell. She spent a lot of time in her cell, but also went to the medical clinic several times a day.”
Not only that, but “One employee of the jail had to spend his day searching the entire place for any books byMore >
