In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

According to TMZ, TV Bitch Queen Heather Locklear was arrested on Saturday night at about 4am. Someone had reported that they had heard a crash by North Ranch Country Club in Westlake Village, California, and police responded accordingly. So how did she get arrested you ask? Well, read on…

So the police weren’t actually called by the witness until 7:48pm later that day. When the police came, they found a “knocked over ‘no parking’ sign and obvious signs of a car that went up the curb, striking the sign,” reported TMZ.

With a bit of investigation, the police figured out that it was Locklear’s car. She lived very close to where the accident occurred and when they went to her house to check out the car, the damaged BMW sealed her fait and she was arrested for a hit-and-run.

facebook-f8

Today, Facebook had it’s annual F8 Conference in San Francisco, California. Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg introduces the conference discussing what the themes of the announcements will be, and where Facebook currently is in terms of performance. I watched the live feed this morning, and here’s the rundown…

First a quick few updates for policy updates for Facebook Connect:

  • One Step Permission for Connect
  • Policy for not caching data for more that 24 hours is now removed
  • Having one credit currency for apps and purchases

Then Zuck moves onto the issue of the Facebook stream. What happens when you post something that you like, like a restaurant you went to for for example, it’s gone in a matter of hours. Some people see it, a lot don’t.

Essentially, there are three big announcements/focuses that are discussed during this conference:

  • 1. Open Graph: Connecting people, social networks, companies, objects, etc.)
  • 2. Social Plugins: Enabling you to provide personalize experience to users
  • 3. Simple: Making things a lot easier for users and developers.

Montreal-based performance company Cirque du Soleil has announced they’ve made a deal with the Jackson family to have a Michael Jackson inspired show set for 2011. Co-executor John Branca filled TMZ in on the details. TMZ reported the following details on the joint venture:

Co-executor John Branca tells TMZ, the first show will open in fall of 2011 — and will travel throughout North America including the Staples Center in L.A. … the same venue where MJ’s memorial was held.

The show will be heavily focused on dancing — honoring the legendary moves of MJ. It will also feature Jackson’s songs and have the trademark Cirque du Soleil acrobatics.

In 2012, a second show — in partnership with MGM MIRAGE — will open in Las Vegas which will be far more theatrical with emphasis on technology and 3D. “It will be a theme-park-like show,” says Branca.

Sources say the shows will be worth a fortune to the estate. Cirque and the estate will split costs and profits 50-50.

The Hills: The End Is Near

the-hills-season-6-scissors

I’m so excited for the final season of The Hills. About a year ago, Donovan introduced me to the faux reality show after we happened to be in LA when Heidi & Spencer got married (which we got footage of and found ourselves on The Aftershow). After that, I was hooked. I went back and watch both season of Laguna Beach, then started on The Hills and watched Seasons 1 through 5, catching up in time to watch Season 6 as each episode aired.

After Lauren Conrad left, and “The Bitch” Kristin Cavallari was to join the show, the potential drama & backstabbing seemed promising. Unfortunately, the season was a snooze and Dono and I had great difficulty in coming up with material for our weekly parodies of the show each week. After the preview for the final season was released, I was officially totally excited to waste my time watching this show once again. Much juicier topics than last season, and more elements from their real lives are incorporated into the show.

Last week they released the promo clip for this season, featuring The Hill’s creator Adam Divello‘s marionettes drama queens having their strings cut, as they free themselves from the world of The Hills. Either that, or as they let loose in what could be the best season yet.

The final season of The Hills commences exactly one week from today: Tuesday, April 27th at 10/9c on MTV.

Highschool is certainly a different ballgame nowadays. When I was in high school, cell phones were new to begin with. The cool thing to have when I was a teen was your own phone line at home, but it certainly wasn’t the norm to have your own cell phone until later on.

Nowadays, it’s all about texting. A study by Pew Center’s Internet & American Life Project has revealed the following stats on teen texting:

  • 75 % of teens aged 12 to 17 own a cell phone
  • On average, 50 text messages are sent a day by these teens, with only about 5 calls made
  • 1/3 of teens send 100 texts a day, equating to about 3,000 per month. “Unlimited” texting used to mean 2,000 text messages per month, thinking that no one would actually go over that. That’s certainly changed. “Unlimited” text plans now actually do mean unlimited.
  • 43% of teens use their cells during school hours
  • Gossip Girls send & receive about 80 texts a day, wheras guys only do about 30

Mom Has Epic Overreaction!

In: Patrick, Videos
vital-energy-mom

This is hilarious – it is Vital that you watch it. So Mike has this business/product called Vital Energy (an energy drink that has as much caffeine as two Redbulls). Mike’s mom doesn’t like when these drinks are on the first floor. If she finds one she throws it out. A little OCD that way.

So the scenario is Mike’s parents have gone away to Colorado for the weekend. Their return home did not go as smoothly as they thought and of course are completely exhausted as they arrive. Certainly not prepared for what they are about to deal with.

Mike and his friends thought it’d be a funny prank to layout 26,000 bottles of Vital Energy throughout the house as a joke. Boy did he underestimate how his parents would react. Aiya carumba!

woohim-gay-roulette

Add another to the list. This one was brought to my attention from a reader who commented on one of the other Gay Roulette articles. Out of all of them, this one is the certainly the most advanced. I decided to check it out and go through the process so I can explain to you what make this one so different. Here are some of the key features:

Profile
For this site, you have to first set up a profile. It’s actually a very quick process. Come up with your username & password, upload a picture, select your city, and submit. That’s all it takes, and your profile is good to go. Like on Facebook, your profile can have a “current status & mood.” You can also put as much or as little information about yourself in your profile. That goes for photos too. You can put up one, or several. You can even upload videos.

Footprints
From your profile, you can select “Footprints”. This allows you to see other profiles that have viewed yours – so you can see who’s been creeping up on you or who is interested.
