Hil Is Busting Out All Over


A "presidential bust" of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton was unveiled Wednesday at New York's Museum of Sex, where sculptor Daniel Edwards hopes it will spark discussion about sex, politics and celebrity.

Edwards, the artist who also created a life-size nude of Britney Spears giving birth on a bear-skin rug, said he wanted to capture Clinton's age and femininity in the sculpture.

Clinton's office had no immediate comment.

Edwards said his work features a soft "presidential smile" and wrinkles framing her eyes. A floral pattern runs across her breasts, part of Edwards' effort to present Clinton "as a woman — not a covered-up person, but as a woman." "I didn't want to give her a face lift or change her age," he said of his work. "The key was to reveal her chest a little bit. She usually covers herself up, but I don't think that's necessary."

Perhaps getting ahead of himself, the artist has titled the sculpture "The Presidential Bust of Hillary Rodham Clinton: The First Woman President of the United States of America."

--I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Paris Gets Bitten


BabyLove - the adorable little kinkajou that Paris Hilton adopted last year - attacked the hotel heiress early Tuesday and bit her on the arm.

Hilton was playing with the monkey, which normally roams the rain forests of Central and South America by night, when it took a chomp out of her. She was treated at an emergency room and called her publicist, Elliot Mintz, at 3 a.m. to report that she'd survived the ordeal.

--Hope the little guys didn't contract anything.

Brangelina Brawl?


Angelina Jolie is asking friends to spy on Brad Pitt.

The "Mr & Mrs Smith" actress is said to be very clingy after the birth of the
couple's daughter Shiloh two months ago, and has been keeping a track of
Brad's while he is filming 'Ocean's Thirteen' in Los Angeles.

A source revealed: "Angie is suffering a little from the baby blues but
she's been extra stressed since Brad left, asking friends to report back on
his every move and sometimes calling him up to 10 times a day." The star - who is currently living in the couple's Malibu mansion with Shiloh and their two adopted children, Maddox, four, and Zahara, 17 months – is reportedly making Brad feel "smothered".

The source Britain’s Grazia magazine: "Brad has had to tell her, 'Stop
smothering me!' "He says she needs to relax and stop treating him like a kid, but Angelina has been telling friends she's unhappy because they talked about not working for a year after Shiloh was born."

Stories about Brad's wild partying with co-stars and old pals, Matt Damon
and George Clooney, have only increased Angelina's worries. The source said: "Angie knows George is a party hound who is surrounded by
women 24/7. It isn't an ideal scenario for a guy with a family."

Meanwhile , Star Magazine reports on July 29th shock waves ripped through the posh Hotel Bel Air in L.A. when a gorgeous brunette with three young children an assistant and a bodyguard in tow- showed up in need of last minute accommodations. Brad Pitt was nowhere in sight!! Sources close to Angelina Jolie told Star that Jolie stormed out of the Malibu mansion she shares with Pitt after a fight.

Angelina Jolie leaving was a power play reports Star Magazine. Brad was reportedly “stunned” and “incredibly angry,” says the insider.

SPF Worst Dressed


The September issue of Esquire has named little Sean Preston Federline the “Worst Dressed Man in the World” on its annual Best and Worst Dressed Men lists.

Regarding Britney Spears‘ less than stellar wardrobe choices for her son the magazine says that “being the offspring of a hyper fertile backup dancer and prematurely wilted flower is no excuse, but being 12 months almost is…As soon as you gain some dexterity, straighten out your hat.”

Little Federline joins Jennifer Lopez‘ husband Marc Anthony and aging, leg-biting rocker Axl Rose on the Worst Dressed list, while upcoming star of the new James Bond film, Daniel Craig, gets top honors.

Screech Gets In Fight With Woman


Dustin Diamond, who played geeky Screech Powers on the '90s teen comedy Saved by the Bell, says he scuffled with a woman at an Omaha hotel earlier this week.

Diamond, who performed at the Funny Bone Comedy Club Thursday through Sunday, told a Tampa, radio station that a woman broke into his room in a west Omaha hotel early Monday morning. Diamond said the woman grabbed some video games, and he held her against the hotel room door until police arrived.

The 28-year-old woman denied attacking Diamond and told police he had assaulted her. Omaha Police Sgt. Teresa Negron said no charges have been filed. "It's a case of 'he said, she said,'" Negron said.

Diamond, 29, is touring the United States with an 18-and-older standup comedy show.

Hatch Not Liking Prison


Richard Hatch, who won the $1 million prize on the debut season of “Survivor,” says he’s finding it difficult to adjust to life in prison.

Hatch, 45, of Newport, R.I., was convicted by a federal jury in January of failing to pay taxes on the prize and other income. He was sentenced in May to 51 months in prison by a judge who said the reality TV star had repeatedly lied on the witness stand. He arrived at the minimum-security facility in Morgantown on July 25.

Hatch, who became known as the “fat naked guy” for refusing to wear clothes on the CBS show, is now required to wear khaki shirts and pants. “I’m doing lots of intake stuff, like clothing and getting to know the place ... but I don’t think I will adjust to any of this until I can prove I was unethically prosecuted,” he told The Dominion Post of Morgantown during a phone interview Wednesday.

Hatch said he will be tutoring inmates, helping them to earn their GEDs and hone their job-hunting skills. “Sure, people know my name ... there are 1,300-plus inmates who think they know me, so it’s an interesting experience,” he said. “They all have questions — want to know what this experience is like and what ‘Survivor’ was about.”

While his lawyer works on his appeal, Hatch said he is using his time to read and write a book about his experiences on “Survivor” and his subsequent legal problems. “I’m focused on writing what has gone so terribly wrong,” he said.

Emeril Cooks For Astronauts


Chef Emeril Lagasse had a long-distance audience today — the crew of the International Space Station.

The astronauts sampled Lagasse's version of space food — with dishes like "Mardi Gras Jumbulaya" and mashed potatoes with bacon. "Excellent," was the review from American Jeff Williams. The food was flown up to the station by the space shuttle last month.

Five of Lagasse's recipes were adapted by NASA for use in space. In the space-to-ground hookup, Lagasse asked various food questions and said he'd keep working with NASA to improve space cuisine.

Williams responded that space station could use a good chef as a crew member. Emeril gave his trademark reply: "That would be really kicking it up a couple of notches."

Vaughniston Engaged?


Three tales...Yes, No, Maybe?

ONE:
Us Weekly has confirmed that Vince Vaughn, 36, has popped the question to his girlfriend of one year, Jennifer Aniston, 37. “They’re engaged!” a friend of the couple’s tells Us, adding, “Vince almost cries whenever he tells the story of the proposal.”

On June 27, as the couple returned home on a private Gulfstream jet to L.A. after a romantic, nine-day vacation at Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis’ $25 million coastal retreat near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, the actor nervously got down on bended knee. At that moment, he asked for Aniston’s hand in marriage – with, say sources, a substantial diamond ring.

“He was going to propose on the beach during the trip, but he chickened out because he wasn’t sure if she would accept,” says the source. “But he knew he was leaving town [to film Into the Wild in South Dakota] for awhile, so he just felt he had to ask her before they landed.”

Source: Us Weekly

TWO:
Jennifer Aniston's camp says Us Weekly has major egg on its face for reporting that she and Vince Vaughn are engaged after he proposed with "a ring bigger than Brad's." "They are not engaged. The Us story is a complete fabrication," fumed Aniston's flack Stephen Huvane. "She has no ring, there was no proposal and they are not engaged. I could not be more clear about this," Huvane said.

Source: New York Post

THREE:
The editors of America's Us Weekly magazine are refusing to back down after their headline-making news about a Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston engagement was rubbished by the actress' publicist.

Aniston's spokesman Stephen Huvane attacked Us Weekly editor Janice Min after she appeared on Today yesterday, insisting the celebrity couple have been engaged for almost two months. He blasted, "She is wrong. There is no engagement." But the publication's executive editor, Ken Baker, hit back on showbiz news program Access Hollywood last night suggesting the magazine's sources are perhaps better than the publicist's.

Baker said, "You're only as good as your sources and I would just ask him to check his sources. They are engaged, they are getting married and they are as happy as they've ever been."

The Owner of "Sexy"


Hip-hop mogul Sean Combs has given Justin Timberlake permission to use his catchphrase "sexy" for his comeback single.

The Bad Boy Entertainment boss is famed for his use of the word, and he has no problem with Timberlake hijacking the term for his song "Sexyback."

Diddy says, "I'm a big fan of Justin and he's allowed to use my catchphrase 'sexy' and run with it. I mean, I got it from somebody else, so it's all good. "(But) I am the king of the sexy, Justin. Let's not get it twisted."
