Scott Baio selling his sex stories!
February 19th, 2007 under Books, Scott Baio. [ Comments: 5 ]

What’s a guy to do when he’s "dated and made love to some of the most desirable, beautiful starlets in Hollywood" but still can’t find love? If you’re Scott Baio, you find two co-writers to package up your pinhead thoughts and try to sell a book. Perhaps emboldened by the success of early ’90s casualty Tori Spelling, who sold her memoir to Simon & Schuster for $300,000 in December (albeit, after asking for $2 million), Baio is shopping around his own, poignantly titled tell-all, BaioWatch: How I Dated and Loved Hollywood’s Most Beautiful Women and Ended Up Alone.

On losing his virginity at the age of 16 to Happy Days co-star Erin "Joanie" Moran:

"I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know what to say after we got naked. So for the first five minutes, maybe less—hell, it might have been the first twenty seconds—I’m doing it and thinking, man, this is really uncomfortable. What happened was, my thing was between the cushions on the couch and I didn’t even know it. Instead of being inside Erin, I was humping a corduroy sofa!"

On being a teen heartthrob:

"I got tight with Charles Laufer, the owner and publisher of Tiger Beat, which became an effective promotional tool…. One girl sent me her underwear that she’d peed and menstruated in, didn’t wipe and ran a mile in, so I could have her natural body fluids and odors.

On how he managed to pull chicks while partying at the Playboy Mansion with Charles in Charge co-star (and Radar correspondent Willie Ames):

"Admittedly, it’s all about money, power and fame. Sometimes Playmates will walk right up to me and grab my crotch."

On the exact moment he knew his relationship with Pamela Anderson was over:

"One day Pamela came home and said, ‘I’m thinking of getting my boobs done.’ Admittedly, I was surprised. My initial response, ‘Reduced?’ She already had large, beautiful, natural breasts. At that moment I knew our relationship would soon begin to crumble. Pamela had finally gone Hollywood—or whatever it is that happens when a woman becomes a hot celebrity."

Perhaps most bizarre, however, is an exchange he details in which a 51-year-old Minnelli tries to get Baio to become her surrogate baby daddy:

"’I really want your sperm. You’re a talented, good-looking Italian guy. That’s what I want my child to be.’ I was incredulous. ‘What are you gonna do with my sperm?’ ‘Well, I’m going to take my egg and put it into somebody else’s body.’"

When I was younger I so wanted to lose my virginity to him!!! Part of me still wishes he would confuse me for some sofa cushions!!!

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the last of seven installments of the boy wizard's adventures, will be published July 21, author J.K. Rowling said Thursday. Rowling announced the publication date on her Web site. Bloomsbury, her British publisher, said it would publish a children's hardback edition, an adult hardback, a special gift edition and an audio book on the same day. Scholastic Children's Books, the U.S. publisher, said it would offer a hardback edition at a suggested retail price of $34.99, a deluxe edition at $65.00 and a reinforced library edition at $39.99. Bloomsbury noted that this year is the 10th anniversary of the publication of the first "Harry Potter" book in the phenomenally successful series. The "Potter" books have sold 325 million copies worldwide and been translated into 64 languages, Bloomsbury said.

Can you believe it has only been 10 years since the first book was released. What an accomplishment to have a book become that big of a classic so fast!

50 Cent getting into the condom business
January 8th, 2007 under Admirable People, Books. [ Comments: none ]

You have his CDs, you’ve chugged his vitamin water, you’ve worn his clothing but will you buy his condoms? The heavily diversified rapper 50 Cent is coming out with a line of condoms. "The kids become immune when you constantly beat them over the head — read a book, read a book," the rap star tells the New York Post. "We have to be a little more creative about it. It’s the same with safe sex. As opposed to being part of a safe-sex campaign, I’m going to make condoms and donate a part of the proceeds to HIV awareness." 50 Cent and G-Unit recently launched a line of books, with the first one called "The Ski Mask Way." The 31-year-old rap star says he plans to turn the book into a film, with production beginning next year. He says he’ll probably have a role in it, because one of the characters is based on him. No word yet on how 50 Cent’s new line of condoms will be distributed, or when they’ll hit the market.

I have to admit I was not into 50 Cent before this, but now I am fan.  The guy is actually givng back to the community and not many rappers do…good for him!!!

Darn, Melanie Griffith cancels tell all
January 8th, 2007 under Books, Melanie Griffith. [ Comments: none ]

MELANIE Griffith has reneged on a promise to tell her life story, according to the ghostwriter, who says she was supposed to help the four-times-wed Hollywood star pen a tell-all. "Two years ago, she promised to do her autobiography with me when she turned 50, which she will be this coming August. In fact, she shook hands on the deal and gave her solemn word," writer Bonnie Robinson tells us. But when she ran into Griffith, who’s battled painkiller addiction, in Aspen, Colo., over the holidays, "I guess all the ‘mood’ elevators have also destroyed her memory, because she told me that she wouldn’t do the book and that she had no recollection of such a promise. Her mood was very bitchy." Griffith’s rep did not respond.

Even though she has led an interesting life, I bet the book would’ve been so boring becauase there is just not much depth to her.

Britney Spears writing a tell-all y’all?
November 23rd, 2006 under Books, Britney Spears/KFed. [ Comments: none ]

BRITNEY Spears has threatened to take the lid off her nightmare marriage to Kevin Federline. The 24-year-old blonde is planning a tell-all book that will blow the saddo out of the water. Her move comes after claims that Kevin, 28, threatened to flog a sensational four-hour sex tape of him and Brit romping. A close friend of the Toxic star said: "Britney has let Kevin know she isn’t taking any s**t and will do whatever it takes to get even. "She is in talks to publish a warts-and-all book about her hell of being married to Kevin if he doesn’t play ball through their bitter divorce. And Britney will not hold back. "She can play him at his own game and the contents of the book would really tear him apart. "As well as detailing the many times he left her looking after their two babies to go partying, there are some really shocking incidents which will make a riveting read. "He has put her through hell and needs to know she will not tolerate it. She has a good team around her and is remaining as upbeat as possible for anyone who is going through a divorce." Tensions over the couple’s two children – Sean, 14 months, and nine-weeks-old Jayden – have fueled the row, Our mole added: "K-Fed has threatened to seek custody of the children and has played silly games. Britney won’t take any more of his bad boy behaviour." The latest twist comes after pornotube.com crashed as millions tried to download a clip of someone looking remarkably like Britney carrying out a sex act. But no mistaking that it was the pop princess at her bubbly best when she turned up looking glam and gorgeous to present a gong at the 2006 American Music Show in Los Angeles. Britney certainly seems to be moving forward. Her smiley image comes days after going wild with party-loving lass Paris Hilton, 24, in Las Vegas. Something tells us Britney is fast becoming a huge comeback queen. Good gal.
