Brangelina Showdown?

Has Quentin Taratino unintentionally caused a major rift between Hollywood’s No. 1 power couple? Brad Pitt is a self confessed stoner. In fact it’s rumoured that both he and ex wife Jennifer Aniston enjoyed getting mellow together. However when he met Angelina Jolie things had to change. In fact Jolie laid down the law about Pitt’s recreational habits. By laid downthe law I mean she delivered an ultimatum: “Get clean or get out”. Brad promised her that now he’d become a father his stoner days were over. It seems though that his cover has been blown.

Tarantino, who directed Pitt in Inglourious Basterds, revealed during a radio interview that Pitt hadn’t given up old habits. During an interview with Howard Stern, Tarantino revealed that he and Pitt smoked hash together in France while the director was trying to talk Pitt into doing Basterds. Coincidentally this was the same time that Jolie was dropping the twins Knox and Vivienne.

Now if you know anything about Jolie it’s that she doesn’t like being defied. So naturally once she received proof positive that Brad had disobeyed her she went ballistic. She did more than fly into a rage. She also reaffirmed the ultimatum. She told him that she didn’t want drugs anywhere around the kids. She even drew the line even closer. Now she’s outlawed booze. So if the rumours are true I guess the next question is how much more is Pitt gonna take? Ultimatums and power plays are not a good basis for a continuing relationship.

Light Fingered Lohan

Remember when those jewels went missing during a Lindsay Lohan fashion shoot? Well lightning has struck twice. Lohan had been loaned some pricey gems – to the tune to $2 million – by Beverly Hills jewelry store XIV Karats. Everything was fine and dandy for a moth or so, until Karats asked for the gems back. That’s when Lindsay made the awkward revelation that she isn’t have them. They’d been stolen from her safe during a burglary! Naturally XIV Karats is not happy. Still I blame them as much as anyone. They knew that Lindsay has bad luck when it comes to hanging on to jewels. Or they would have if they’d been regular readers of Wondertrash! Whether this is a coincidence, or Lindsay has picked up a side line, the girl is becoming a bad insurance risk.

Adam Goldstein is dead


By now everyone has heard that sad news that celebrity DJ Adam Goldstein, who worked professionally under the name DJ AM, is dead. Goldstein was discovered in his 2 mill Soho apartment on 210 Lafayette St, after a friend phoned 911. The friend had stopped by and got no response, so called for the EMT. The emergency response team had to break down the door, and found Goldstein dead. The time was approximately 5:23 PM. A drug pipe and 2 empty pill bottles were found near the body.

Goldstein is best know for a series of high profile relationships with young celebrities like Nicole Richie and Mandy Moore (and most recently Hayley Wood). Along with Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker he survived a serious plane crash in South Carolina last year that left him with serious burns. 4 other including the pilot were killed in the crash.

So far the death is being classified as an OD. Goldstein has had addiction issues in the past, including crack, Ecstasy, and others. However Goldstein has claimed to have been drug free for the past 11 years. His last tweet on his twitter account may also indicate that there were some issues with depression – “New york, New York. Big city of dreams but everything in new york ain’t always what it seems.” It has been reported that he was struggling with post traumatic stress disorder and ‘survivor’s guilt’ following the plane crash. Goldstein was 36 at the time of his death.

Freaky Friday – The Story on Mischa

Now as everyone who follows celeb gossip has heard, former OC actress Mischa Barton flipped out a little while back and got carted off to the nuthouse. She was committed under a 5150 hold order and was the reluctant recipient of Cedar’s-Sinai’s hospitality for about a week. So far Mischa has been tight lipped about what exactly happened. Now she’s finally opening up and explaining what exactly lead to her freak out and subsequent hospitalization.

It seems it all started with some dental work that Mischa had done. She had finally gotten around to having a wisdom tooth taken care of when things took a turn for the worse. As Mischa explains to Time Out:

“Here’s what happened: Before the show started, I was traveling abroad for contract stuff and I went through a terrible surgery — a wisdom tooth surgery, all four removed. It was a nightmare,” the actress explained. “I’ve never had surgery before — it all went wrong and I had to have a second surgery and it almost delayed shooting because it was a nightmare to me, because I couldn’t deal with the thought of not getting there on time. So with the travel, and surgery and prep for the show — it was hell.”

“I went through a tough spot where everything compounded on me, and it was like a perfect storm, like everything was happening to me at once. The show, travel and then this fairly routine surgery that went wrong,” she told the mag. “It’s still just healing. But I had to get through it without proper painkillers because I couldn’t take those during work. So it’s been a nightmare.”
When asked how she ended up in a psychiatric hospital, Mischa said it had a lot to do with stress.
“I was down in the dumps about everything there for a while,” she said. “Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom about things and have to get the most stressed-out just to feel better again. I got completely stressed-out and couldn’t handle everything, and now I feel really in control.”

For the record Mischa denies that she had a nervous breakdown:

“I don’t know. I don’t know. I had a friend who had a quasi-nervous breakdown, but I’m not sure it’s the same thing,” she said. “I’m not sure I’m capable of a full-on nervous breakdown, but it was pretty bad. It didn’t last that long. It was more about the pain. I have a newfound respect for people who have chronic pain. I started getting migraines.”
Although pain played a role, Mischa said the doctors did not teach her how to handle pain.
“The doctor told me I was lucky I didn’t lose feeling in my lips and face, which would have been horrifying and couldn’t act properly.”

Mischa has also indicated that her mom is the one who called the cops and had her committed. Now those two have had their differences in the past. A year or so ago Mischa was overheard giving her mother a terrible dressing down on a public street, while the actress was either getting into or out of a cab. The gist of it was that Mischa called her mother’s mental capacity in to question, loudly! Mischa feels that things also got blown way out of proportion by happening in LA. Says Misch: “if all this happened in New York, no one would care.” So remember, next time you feel a freak out coming on, make sure that you’re in NYC, ’cause they let you be yourself there! It’s still the city that doesn’t give a damn, and that’s just the way they like it!

Now Mischa shouldn’t be shy about owning up to a break down. It’s kind of an occupational hazard among drugged out unstable women – otherwise known as actresses. If sanity is a relative thing then Mischa is a paragon of sanity by the standards of her profession. For example here’s a few brief words from Anne Heche on her wild & crazy days:

Dementia & the 4rth Dimension

If you’ll recall Anne got spaced out on meth shortly after her Ellen DeGeneres bust up. She thought that she was an ET called Celestia sent to Earth to teach peace and love. When the authorities finally caught up with her she was wandering around naked waiting for the mother ship to beam her up (maintaining a civilized society requires that peace, love, and nudity be strictly controlled!). Apparently the transporter beam couldn’t teleport her with her clothes on (Probably some kind of dimensional interference caused by Earth fabrics. Either that or her ET’s have advanced beyond the primitive custom of clothing). Celestia also wrote reams of stuff that was supposedly dictated by the voices in her head. Now no one should have to ask why the court decided that Coley Laffoon was the better choice to raise young Homer.

Speaking of crazy antics and advanced aliens from outer space coming to save us from ourselves, there’s a whole new slew of Scientology allegations coming out in the St Petersburg Times. It’s about what you’d expect but still startling: beatings, isolation, and an atmosphere of fear & intimidation. I believe that Tom Cruise’s name gets mentioned.

The SPT has done some extensive work on Scientology, here’s their index.

Kerry Katona Canned

You might even say that KK was ‘put on ice’ from her lucrative $500 000 a year Iceland ice cream endorsement. Her corporate sponsors felt that she crossed the line when her ‘hobby’ got picked up on tape and then broadcast by NewsoftheWorld. It never rains but it pours, or in this case snows.

The latest development in this story is that Katona’s 1st husband Brian McFadden is consulting with lawyers. He feel’s that the children are no longer safe there. He may have a point. Whether or not doing drugs makes her unfit, being stupid enough to get videoed doing it in your own home definitely indicates some kind of serious negligence! I still like her better than that skanky ho’ Jordan.

Kerry Katona: A user, a boozer, and a loser!

That young woman better get her nose clean and I mean literally ’cause she’s on the fast track to Flatpoint High, home of the concrete donkey!
