Celebrity Gossip! Verne Troyer Owes the Government Some Serious Money

What is with all these celebrities (or so-called celebrities) not being able to afford their taxes? I mean celebrities have to have an accountant or financial planner helping them with their money right? The latest celebrity to be hit with back taxes is Austin Power’s Mini-Me Verne Troyer. The actor fell behind on his taxes in 2005 and 2008 and owes the government $10,869.36 in back taxes. I guess this is nothing compared to the millions that Nicolas Cage owes in taxes but still, the guy has to come up with almost $11,000 soon. A few months ago Verne had mentioned that Mike Myers was coming up with an Austin Powers 4 movie. He better hope that Mike writes it awful fast so he can get some money.

Singer Mariah Carey is stepping forward and admits that she was emotionally abused in a relationship. She says that she can relate to singer Rihanna and her relationship with Chris Brown as she too was emotionally and mentally abused. Mariah, who married Nick Cannon last year, says that she has been through some painful relationships in the past. She told Larry King in an interview, “You know, I just think you get into a situation and you feel locked in. If your situation is similar to one of the situations I’ve been in – which I won’t harp on – for me, to really get out, it was difficult because there was a connection that was not only a marriage but a business thing, where the person was in control of my life.” In the same interview, Mariah also denounced the rumors that she was pregnant. She says that she would love to have a child now but with her movie Precious and singing career she does not have the time to devote to motherhood like she wants to. She said, “I wouldn’t be just like, ‘Oh, I’m having a child, Yay! Let me get a nanny so I can give her the baby. Take the kid. That doesn’t work for me. I don’t believe in that.” At least this is one celebrity who takes motherhood seriously rather than just pawning kids off on a nanny.

Celebrity Style: Bright Summer Colors

The warm weather is approaching and soon summer will be here. It seems that with summer comes bright colors. Celebrities have been seen wearing some brightly colored frocks lately, and not only clothes but accessories, like handbags and shoes.

Celebrities are welcoming the summer with quite a loud fashion trend. It appears that the days of neon and bright colors are back. But, don’t start whipping out your 80’s neon clothing just yet. These bright colors are being worn in updated and modern ways that look nothing like the neon days of the 80’s. Singer Ashanti even told OK Magazine, that she rearranges her closet when spring and summer rolls around. She told the magazine that “I love all of this season’s bright colors.”

A lot of celebrities have been rocking this trend with the bright shoes. Fergie was seen wearing bright orange shoes with her white dress on the red carpet. The shoes definitely gave her outfit the pop of color it needed to add interest. Other celebrities that have been sporting the bright shoes are Nicky Hilton, Mariah Carey, and Eva Longoria Parker. If you want to keep your bright colors simple this season, then you may want to stick with bright shoes to add the pop of color. Try these neon pink shoes by Juicy Couture .

Other celebrities are going full force on the bright color fashion trend and are sporting clothing that definitely stands out. Kate Moss paired a bright pink long tunic with her black leggings. While Gossip Girl’s Taylor Momsen went the opposite route and paired a bright pink mini-skirt with a black top and leather jacket. Other celebrities that are standing out in their bright clothing are Paris Hilton, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, Blake Lively, Fergie, Demi Moore, and Vanessa Hudgens.

If you don’t want to draw that much attention to yourself but you want to stay in fashion, then try adding bright colored accessories to your outfit. As mentioned before, shoes can help liven up an otherwise boring outfit, but you can also wear jewelry with bright colors or carry a handbag that is brightly colored. The possibilities are endless with this fashion trend.

TV/Movie/Celebrity Style: Rings the Size of Cocktails and Tunic Dresses

We all know that celebrities have plenty of money to spend on jewelry and accessories, and they are definitely showing that off. A big trend in jewelry with celebrities is big cocktail rings. They can be worn to red carpet events or just dates on the town. It seems like the bigger the better. Such celebrities as Fergie, Mariah Carey, Eva Longoria, Carmen Electra, Paris Hilton, Blake Lively and so many more have been seen sporting huge cocktail rings around Hollywood. The rings are definitely noticeable and catch the eye quickly. Rihanna is almost always photographed wearing some sort of huge cocktail ring on her fingers, and usually more than one. Although celebrities may pay thousands of dollars for some of their rings, some of them actually go the cheaper route. Marc Jacobs makes cocktails rings that are not that expensive and can be afforded by the average person. Try out his cocktail rings on your next date out to help you feel like a celebrity.

As summer winds down, it seems like celebrities are getting in their last days of summer fashion with tunic dresses. Tunic dresses are usually mini-dresses that are not really form fitting and are usually in a bohemian print or style. If you don’t dare wear a mini-dress out in public, a tunic dress can also be worn with a skinny pair of jeans underneath. This will also help you take this celebrity trend into the fall. Such celebrities as Nicky Hilton, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Rachel Bilson, and Hayden Panettiere seem to love tunic dresses and have worn quite a few of them. For a more defined look, pair your tunic dress with a belt, like the ones from Dolce and Gabbana as Rachel Bilson did.

The tunic dress can be worn in two different styles. To go for more of a casual look for your tunic dress, do what Nicky Hilton does and pair it with a pair of flat sandals. To make the tunic dress more of a dressy outfit, pair it with a pair of high heeled sandals as Carmen Electradoes.

Who Wear's Short Shorts? (Quite a Few Famous People, Actually!)

Who wears short shorts? Celebrities do, that’s who. So many celebrities have been seen walking around this summer in short shorts . I guess if they have the body, which they do, why not show it off? There are a couple different trends for the shorts among them.

People like Nicole Richie, Kate Moss, and Nicky Hilton have sported the frayed look for their short shorts. To get this look, all you have to do is cut a pair of your jeans into tiny little shorts and wash in the washing machine and they will come out with the fray on the bottom of them. Pair your frayed short shorts with a tunic or sleeveless tank and you are all set. And then you too can look like a celebrity.

Another trend with the short shorts with celebrities are the cuffed shorts. Stars such as Hayden Panettiere, Audrina Patridge, Mariah Carey, and Lindsay Lohan have all sported cuffed short shorts. But beware! Some of the shorts these celebs have been wearing cost $160 and much more. A little much for a pair of barely there shorts, right?

Dressing like a celebrity does not have to cost as much as you think it would. You can get a pair of 575 Denim shorts for just $117!

A couple of celebrities have come out with clothing lines and accessories that can fit into most people’s budgets, and they even wear the clothing themselves. Amanda Bynes has released a clothing line for a store called Steve and Barry’s, in which nothing is over $30. Amanda was seen wearing one of her blue strapless dresses from her own line. The dress only retails for $11. Another celebrity that has come out with affordable fashion is Tori Spelling. She sells affordable jewelry on the Home Shopping Network. She comes up with inexpensive costume jewelry that she also wears herself. So, who says that you have to break the bank to look like a celebrity, instead just buy the celebrities’ fashions that they sell.

Britney and Madonna going on tour, Nicole Richie gets thrown out of Hard Rock, J-Lo in a bikini and Lindsay Lohan's 22nd birthday!

It looks like Madonna will have a special guest joining her when she goes on tour later this year! And you know when Madonna does something, she does it in a big way. So it’s not surprise that it will be Britney Spears joining Madonna. Yes, that Britney Spears. Should we expect more lip locks like the one at the MTV Music Awards back in 2003 or not? We’ll just have to wait and see what kind of tricks Madonna has up her sleeve this time.

And is Nicole Richie back to her hard partying ways even though she is a new mother now? TMZ reports that Nicole was booted from the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas for rowdiness and fighting with another female. Sheesh, whatever happened to turning over a new leaf?

It’s only been five months since Jennifer Lopez gave birth to twins Max and Emme, but she’s already done the requisite celebrity bikini shot that new mothers in Hollywood do to prove that they’re still desirable and in excellent shape. Jennifer was spotted wearing a string bikini while on a luxury yacht in Italy.

Nick Cannon is denying the rumors that his marriage to Mariah Carey is on shaky ground. In fact, he’s even said that marriage is the best thing that’s every happened to him. I don’t know – I’d give this one at least till the end of the year before Nick considers running for the hills from Mariah’s diva ways.

Andrew Firestone, heir to the Firestone fortune, tied the knot with girlfriend Ivana Bozilovic last weekend. Andrew was a former contestant on The Bachelor and picked Jen Schefft as the winner and even proposed marriage to her. However, the engagement didn’t work out (as they rarely do on The Bachelor).

And finally, Lindsay Lohan celebrated her 22nd birthday this past week (yes, she’s only 22!) and it looks like she might have finally admitted to being in a relationship with rumored girlfriend, Samantha Ronson. She said she wanted to continue on the path that she’s on with the person that she cares about. The two later partied it up at Disneyland and Teddy’s Nightclub.

Idol News, Oprah Goes Vegan, Alba Gets Married and Diaz Gets Bald

David Cook was crowned this years American Idol last night at a celeb-filled American Idol finale. The AI producers managed to drag out some real golden oldies for last night’s show – including Donna Summers, George Michael and ZZ Top. But thankfully the Jonas Brothers were also on hand and managed to balance out the age thing out a little bit.

In a sad bit of news, some unfortunate information surfaced this week about a former American Idol contestant. Apparently Luke Menard was diagnosed with inoperable cancer.

And it looks like there’s trouble in paradise for BFF’s Danny Noriega and Ramiele Malubay. You might remember how Ramiele cried when Danny Noriega was voted off. There was talk of how the two planned to move to LA and be roommates, but looks like that plan is off. And to make matters worse, Danny had to beg his way into the American Idol finale. When he initially tried to get tickets he was told that the show was full. Poor Danny.

Guess who’s going vegan for three weeks? Oprah Winfrey! She’s made a pledge to go on an all-vegan diet for the next three weeks, so her personal chef is having to work overtime trying to come up with edible vegan dishes that the Queen of Talk will actually eat. So far, so good, but you know as well I do that as soon as the 21 days are up Oprah will be gobbling up a big, fat, juicy hamburger.

Jessica Alba pulled a Mariah Carey this past Monday and secretly married her long-time boyfriend, Cash Warren. In fact, Jessica Alba’s wedding was so hush-hush that even her own brother didn’t know about it. He only heard about it when he was contacted by the press for a statement regarding the quickie nuptials.

And speaking of celebrities imitating other celebrities – did Cameron Diaz pull a Britney Spears? I realize that pulling a Britney Spears could refer to any number of bad behaviors, but I’m talking about the shaving your head on a whim incident. Cameron was recently caught completely bald by paparazzi. Not to worry though, it turns out that she was actually just wearing a cap while filming a scene for her new movie, My Sister’s Keeper, in which she plays the mother of two daughters, one of which is suffering from leukemia.

Guess which Hollywood celeb has baby fever? Paris Hilton. Now we’ve all heard the rumors of how Paris Hilton wants to have a baby before, but it looks like this time she’s really serious. She’s been dating her current boyfriend, Benji Madden for a little over 2 months, but already she is talking about marriage and babies. In fact, she even went as far as to say that she wants a baby within the next 12 months. It looks likes Tinkerbell’s reign as Paris’ baby is about to come to an end.

And could it be that Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder are Hollywood’s next power couple? Star Magazine recently reported that the two have gotten extremely close while filming their new movie together. Is there really romance in their air for Keanu and Winona or is it just a publicity stunt to boost both of their profiles?
