Paula Abdul Forces Assistants to Call Her 'Warrior, Survivor, and Gift'

Paula Abdul's personal mantra is also her staff's. Adam Sandler is accused of dining and dashing. The cast of The Help likes to skinny dip. Angelina Jolie is "as kinky and insatiable as ever." TGIFriday gossip is titillating.

  • Paula Abdul forces her staff to call her "warrior, survivor, and gift." Affirmations! I wonder if they are written on her mirror, to repeat 10 times before bed each night. "I am a warrior. I am a gift. I am wrapped in a bow and under the Christmas tree." Assistants must carry tape recorders at all times "because she doesn't trust her own conversations." [Us, image via Getty]
  • Angelina Jolie is "just as kinky—and insatiable—as ever." "Angelina likes it rough and playful." "She has an antique chest in the bedroom where she keeps her sex toys." Gossip report or erotic fan fiction? Sometimes there is no distinction. [InTouch via Celebitchy]
  • Paula Abdul Forces Assistants to Call Her 'Warrior, Survivor, and Gift'Jessica Chastain says gaining 15 pounds for her role in The Help was "a form of torture." She's a vegan, so she mostly ate soy ice cream, which actually does sound pretty torturous. "Soy helps you become curvy because it has estrogen in it. So what I would do—and this is really gross—is buy cartons of soy ice cream, microwave it, and drink it. It was disgusting." Confirmed. "Wait until you see my boobs in the movie." Oh.

  • Speaking of The Help, Emma Stone's fictional love interest Chris Lowell says the cast "did a lot of skinny-dipping" to pass the time on location in Mississippi. Apparently actress Allison Janney and writer/director Tate Taylor led the way. Always the middle-aged hippies. "So modest" Emma never participated. [E!]
  • Heather Locklear's actor boyfriend Jack Wagner reportedly proposed two weeks ago. The ring is 6 carats. [NYDN]
  • Corey Feldman: "The number one problem in Hollywood was, is, and always will be pedophilia. It's all done under the radar… but it's the big secret." He was "literally surrounded" by pedophiles as a kid, but didn't realize "until I was much older what they ere and what they anted." Feldman blames the late Corey Haim's death and drug addiction on an unnamed "Hollywood mogul" that abused him. [Nightline via Us]
  • Paula Abdul Forces Assistants to Call Her 'Warrior, Survivor, and Gift'An Italian sandwich joint in Peabody, Massachusetts posted a giant sign that says "Adam Sandler ate here and never paid." The owner claims he was prepared to cater three events for Sandler's production company Happy Madison, but Happy Mad flaked on the second and third event, stranding the owner with $2500 of groceries. Sandler's publicist says the production company only hired the sandwich joint for one event, not three, so it's the owner's own damn fault. Also, Sandler has never even been to the restaurant, and never will, so there. [TMZ]
  • John McEnroe and Jeremy Piven sang karaoke together. I think I had a weird nightmare about that once. [P6]
  • Paula Abdul Forces Assistants to Call Her 'Warrior, Survivor, and Gift'As a little girl, Kristen Stewart was frequently mistakenly for a boy, and was "deathly self-conscious" about it. "I was like, No, I'm a girl." Lest you be confused again, the accompanying photo shoot is pure sex kitten. Breaking out of the "sulky teenager" look, it seems. [W]
  • Robert Pattinson on Edward and Bella's sex scene: "I wanted to have it as a line so much: 'I bit through the pillows. Every. Single One.' And then he'd start crying. By the way, that's what he should be ashamed of in the morning. All those beautiful pillows! Egyptian cotton! I ruined this bed!" [EW]
  • Sarah Ferguson got angry and stormed off the set during an appearance on Australia's 60 Minutes, but I'm actually more interested in the segment that comes after, about "high drama on tour with The Wiggles." Fergie's publicist says "she was ambushed. No, it was entrapment." Yeah? Well try being trapped in a burning car and almost dying, like Jeff from The Wiggles. Life has taken a sad turn when you are out-badass-ed by a member of The Wiggles. [Radar]
  • A 56-year-old lady accused of robbing Alex Trebek claims she is not a thief, but a prostitute, and came to his hotel room to bang him. Trebek says he saw Lucinda Moyers rifling through his belongings, then chased her by foot, causing his Achilles Tendon to rupture. Police later found Trebek's personal belongings scattered on other floors of the hotel. [NYDN]
  • Remember when Most Hated Couple in America Jesse James and Kat Von D broke up? MIght have been because Kat cheated on Jesse with Bam Margera. "Bam went over to Kat's LA home to hang out and talk, and he ended up spending the night. Jesse found out and questioned her about it, and Kat let slip something about how ‘Bam just can't sleep alone.' Jesse hit the roof when he heard that and accused Kat of cheating on him." So much to hate. So little time. [Star via Celebitchy]
