Michelle Money has done the impossible.
The former Bachelor cast member has not only improved her image significantly on this summer’s Bachelor Pad, she made a true personal connection on the show!
Months after filming wrapped, Michelle Money and Graham Bunn, a Bachelorette cast member from DeAnna Pappas’ season, say they are closer than ever.
“Graham and I talk multiple times a day,” Money said. “We both knew he was going back to New York and I’m going back to Utah, and we live different lives.”
“We don’t live close to each other by any stretch of the imagination, so we knew it was like,More >
Antoine Dodson shot to YouTube fame last July when he ranted on about chasing away an attempt rapist from his sister’s bedroom.
But the Alabama native is back in the news for being on the wrong side of the law this time.
According to TMZ, Dodson was arrested early Saturday morning on a misdemeanor citation of marijuana possession. He was also charged by Huntsville police for failing to appear on a traffic charge, failing to have car insurance and speeding.
Dodson, who earned proceeds from a Gregory Brothers video that paraodied his 2010 interview and boughtMore >
Welcome to THG’s Week in Review! Below, our staff takes a look back at the stories, stars and scandals that made this week one of April’s most memorable.
- Nicolas Cage gave Charlie Sheen a run for his money with a crazy arrest.
- So did Sheen’s own wife, Brooke Mueller, who’s gone off the rails again.
- Mel Gibson finally broke his silence on the infamous Oksana tapes.
- Michael Jackson autopsy photos will be allowed at trial.
- Jessica Simpson gave
Even in death, the personal life of Michael Jackson remains as bizarre as his musical talent was profound. The King of Pop is simply peerless on both arenas.
The latest saga? A declaration filed with the court, purportedly signed by his mom, Katherine Jackson, in which she attacks the executors of MJ’s estate.
Robert Pattinson is many things. Handsome. Talented. Friendly. Humble.
But there’s one description the Twilight Saga star tells the latest issue of ELLE he’s sick of hearing: “I never got the “brooding” thing. I’ve had about enough of that.”
In that case, how would the actor classify himself? Not in glowing terms, according to the interview. He says:
“When you’re confronted with yourself too much, you start to think, Jesus Christ, you’re so fucking boring. And the more you think you’re boring, the more you become boring. I talk about myself too much now.”More >
Charlie Sheen delivered a live performance in Cleveland last night that echoed that city’s motto. Indeed, according to fans there, the actor rocks.
Among the highlights:
- The crowd going bonkers at the sight of Sheen in an Indians jersey.
- Sheen showing off merchandise that included a “SHEENIUS” shirt.
- The audience chanting “F-ck Detroit” and “F-ck that bitch!” regarding Denise Richards.
- Sheen taking
Charlie Sheen “plays” Cleveland tonight. Tickets are still available. A lot of them.
The first show of his Torpedo of Truth tour was such a historic debacle, a huge number of people dumped tickets to future dates onto the secondary market.
Also, a large number of tickets remain unsold at all, even after Sheen redeemed himself (sort of) with a better-received Chicago performance (below).
According to online exchanges, the average ticket to Sheen’s upcoming Radio City Music Hall date went for between $125-$150 last week on its website.
Richard Hatch, winner of Survivor and current contestant on Celebrity Apprentice, is going to jail for not paying taxes for the money he won on Survivor.
The reality star has served more than three years for tax evasion already. He has been under supervised release and was supposed to re-file his taxes.
Hatch, who apparently can’t outwit, outplay or outlast the Internal Revenue Service, failed to do so again and did not fork over taxes from 2000-01.
Richard needs to Hatch a plan to hire an accountant.

What is Charlie Sheen up to?
“Everything and nothing,” that’s what the actor told Dan Patrick today, as he re-visited the first stop on what Sheen now describes as a “media tsunami.” Among the topics the unemployed star and the host talked about:
- How he feels to be off Two and a Half Men, a “slag pit of redundancy,” as he called the show: “There’s a part of me that enjoyed taking all their money, so I have to find something between the two that makes me happy again.”
- Phony concern from the media: “At the end of the day its all about ratings, its about commerce.”
- Rob Lowe replacing him:
Oksana Grigorieva has just won $300,000 from ex-boyfriend Mel Gibson, however that money will not go into her pockets, but instead be handed over to hear team of nearly 40 lawyers.
Oksana’s lawyers requested the money which was granted by Judge Scott Gordon who told Gibson’s team that the money must be handed over immediately.
The new amount of money brings Grigorieva’s total lawyer haul from Gibson to a mind boggling number just over $1 million, quite a bit of money to spend when fighting for child support of one child.
If that isn’t enough, it’s believed that Oksana’s lawyers have askedMore >
Ellen Degeneres tweeted that she would love a lock of Justin Bieber’s recently cut hair so she could use it to raise money for charity. Apparently Bieber heard her pleas, appearing on her talk show with a box holding some of his famous locks.
Bieber told Ellen:
“Yes, it’s really my hair,” while adding that he’s giving away “pieces” of his hair to various friends so they can auction it off for charities.
Along with his hair, Bieber signed the glass box containing his hair before handing it over to Ellen. Money from his hair will go to benefit Gentle Barn, an organization that trainsMore >
Eric George, the lawyer who negotiated a $15 million settlement between Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson isn’t too pleased that she later disavowed the agreement and he is suing her for his cut of the settlement which he says should have been accepted.
According to George, he completed the settlement to the best of his abilities and because it was originally agreed upon Oksana owes him his share.
In arbitration documents George says his firm was promised 10% of the settlement, but none of the money that was set aside for child support.
TMZ was told that Oksana filed papers trying to haveMore >
Maksim Chmerkovskiy turned down The Bachelor in the U.S., but has assumed the leading role in the version of the hit show in his native Ukraine.
The Dancing With the Stars hunk is the star of the inaugural edition of the romance reality series beginning March 17 on the Ukraine’s STB network.
Why did he turn it down here – as did Chris Lambton, which ultimately gave us Brad Womack for a second time – but agree to it in Eastern Europe?
“There has never been a show such as this in Ukraine,” he wrote on his blog. “That makes me think that a firstMore >
She may not win the final rose (THG’s Bachelor spoilers have a thing or two to say about that), but Michelle Money is definitely the contestant of the year.
Watching the 30-year-old – not 29, not 31 – become more and more unhinged this season has been a treat for The Bachelor viewers … or just frightening.
Michelle surpassed her own crazy standards on last night’s episode, sneaking into Brad Womack’s villa, demanding answers and trashing the other girls:
Womack, who’s a bit stiff on his best days, was floored when Michelle Money called him outMore >
Pink 1, celebrity gossip 0.
The singer may have just released a song called “F—in’ Perfect,” but her opinion of the tabloids trying to snap pics of her baby bump is anything but.
As such, Pink decided to give everyone a good look at her belly by Tweeting this pic, then get in a quality dig at peeps trying to score the money shot:
“ALRIGHT. because paparazzi today have absolutely no photographic skill or artistry whatsoever, and their pictures are hideous… I’m going to post a self-portrait I took yesterday morning for all of you asking to see belly shots,” she writes.
“3 wks of photoMore >
