SWAG GIVEAWAY: Garmin GPS with charger

Celebrity VIP Lounge and H2 are teaming up to offer a very lucky VIP reader the chance to win a Garmin GPS with charger, all in support of Ancient Aliens airing Fridays on H2.

Through ancient religious texts, personal sightings and exquisitely constructed wonders come the belief by some that ancient astronauts once inhabited our world among, and pre-dating the existence of, human beings and that they will indeed come again. In Season 4 of Ancient Aliens, H2 resumes the investigation of these curious marvels while questioning truth vs. phenomenon via 75 million years of the most credible alien evidence here on Earth as seen in a myriad of forms from biblical texts to massive stone ruins aligned in perfect Pythagorean sequence.

Here are a few of the upcoming topics to be highlighted on season four:

1. THE MAYAN CONSPIRACY – Who were the Mayans? And what happened to them? Known by scientists and researchers as the most advanced early civilization in the western world – an examination of ancient Maya ruins, artifacts and hieroglyphs reveals astonishing new evidence of early contact with star travelers.

2. THE DOOMSDAY PROPHECIES – Some interpreters of the infamous ancient Mayan calendar claim that world will come to an end on December 21, 2012. Researchers examine the archeological evidence, as well as myths and legends of the Maya that suggest contact with sky gods and supernatural beings in the ancient past. Did star beings influence the creation of the Maya calendar, and might this really be a warning of a future doomsday on Earth?

3. THE GREYS – Who are the beings with big heads and giant eyes that seem to have been visiting our planet for millennia? Known by researchers as the “greys,” these mysterious beings have been depicted in rock-art and carved stone figures throughout the ages and all over the world. Who are they, what planet do they come from, and what do they want?

4. ALIENS AND MEGA-DISASTERS – There are numerous historical, religious and mythic accounts of ancient civilizations being wiped out by volcanoes, earthquakes, floods, and meteors. Did god, or nature bring about such disasters? Or is it possible that celestial beings had a hand in the ancient world’s catastrophic disasters?

5. THE NASA CONNECTION – NASA scientists, former astronauts and secret government files all point to the conclusion that there has been contact with extraterrestrial life in the past. Researchers examine this and other recent scientific evidence that may provide proof of alien contact in both the recent and ancient past.

In addition H2 has created a unique Facebook application in support of the series where fans can decipher the Ancient Aliens Code for a chance to win $10k in Earth Dollars in addition to customizing their own crop circle by uploading a picture.

The new season on Fridays at 9pm on H2.

Whitney Houston Casket Photo Upsets Family

This week The National Enquirer paid out some big bucks for a Whitney Houston laying in her casket photo and TMZ is reporting that Whit’s family had “their heart broken all over again”.

So while the family is said to be disgusted that the photo was printed, they still don’t know who snapped the picture. But they are certain that it was somebody inside of the funeral home who had the balls to do such a thing.

But get this, the fam will NOT investigate the matter any further. Either they are trying to put this all past them or their is something fishy going on.

Now, is it just me or does anyone else get the feeling that the Houston family may have sold this picture themselves? I mean, really. The photos from the reception definitely looked like they were all posed. There was a photo of Cissy with Brandy, Cissy with Dionne and Oprah, etc. And rumor has it those very photos were sold to People magazine BY Whit’s family to “raise money for Bobby Kristina”.

I don’t know about you, but something doesn’t seem quite right. With the security I am sure they had, someone either betrayed them royally or it could have very well been a set up.

Justin Bieber suing Creators of Joustin Beaver App

I am pretty sure Justin Bieber is getting sick of the beaver comparisons. Heck, I’m guilty of calling him Justin Beaver from time to time, but when it comes to profiting off of the beaver comparison, a company called RC3 is raking in the dough and Bieber’s peeps are putting a stop to it!

Bieber’s attorneys have threatened to sue the makers of a cell phone game which allegedly parodies the teen star. The app named Joustin Beaver features a beaver sporting a Bieber-style haircut and attempts to fend off photo hogs.

According to TMZ,

Bieber’s legal team wants company bosses to remove the game from sale on the iTunes website and an account of all revenues collected by RC3.

If I was Justin I would definitely sue the pants off of these people. Seriously. Can they make their app anymore obvious?

Take a look at the picture above. You can’t tell me that if Justin Bieber was a Beaver, he wouldn’t look like that?! Am I not right?

Kendall Jenner Channels “Black Swan” In New Swimwear Ads

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glam! Back in August, Kendall Jenner did a photoshoot for Australian swimwear brand White Sands’ Spring/Summer 2012 ad campaign. The 16-year-old model shared the pics, which were inspired by the hit movie, Black Swan, on her blog. “This was my first professional swimwear shoot and I got to wear the most gorgeous bathing suits and cute coverups… what do you guys think of the pics?” she wrote.

According to Us Weekly, big sis Kim Kardashian gave a behind-the-scenes photo from the shoot, exclaiming, “How stunning does she look!?!? I couldn’t be more proud!”

Kendall is definitely making her name known in the fashion world, posing in past Forever 21 swimwear ads, as well as hitting the catwalk at Fashion Week in NYC last September, sporting Sherri Hill’s Spring 2012 collection.

Though the “White Swan” outfit reminds me of granny underwear a little bit, Kendall looks great! And the head pieces definitely add to both suits. Now, many people have spoken out about Kendall getting involved in modeling so young. But the kid has a knack for it! If you got it, you might as well flaunt it! Modeling seems to be a passion for her, so I say keep going!

Britney Spears with Smash and X-Factor?

So Smash has been a huge hit for TV/Musical fans, and so doesn’t it make sense that Britney Spears would eventually get on the show?

Yah…sure it does. According to recent rumors, Britney Spears is in talks to get on the show and producers are trying to find a spot for her to play a starring role. But, you know how rumors are…they can, well, be totally way off. The more likely story is that Spears wants on the show, but the Producers haven’t exactly found a fit for it yet.

And if I could throw in my two cents, I’m guessing that Spears is a little, tiny bit jealous of the stars of the show, Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty. I mean, couldn’t you just hear Katharine singing to Britney’s song, “Toxic”?

Okay, well, either way, here’s hoping you get your way on this one. We’ll keeping our finger’s crossed for you Britney.

In the mean time, what seems to be a more likely possibility for the pop star is to get on X-Factor as a judge. Now, recently, we expressed our own judge hopefuls, and although Madonna isn’t exactly getting chosen as a judge, it’s getting more likely that Britney Spears might get chosen (hey, they did kiss once…it’s close enough to having Madonna on the show, right?). And this time it isn’t Britney’s wishful thinking getting in her way.

According to a close friend, Britney Spears feels she will be a great fit for the show. Her friend explains, “She knows all about the ups and downs of pop fame. And with her schedule relatively clear she has the time to dedicate to a different project.”

All sarcasm aside, I do think that Britney may be a good fit. We all admire how far she’s come and how she has stuck with it. And even Simon Cowell seems suspiciously hush-hush about the entire thing.  Cowell explained, “While you’ve got The Voice and Idol competing with each other, I’ve learned one lesson: Keep your mouth shut. Don’t give it all away.”

And by the way, for you long time pop fans, can you imagine the pair – Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears once  considered each other’s rivals…being rivals again? I have to say it would work wonders for both of their careers.

So, what do you think….should Britney Spears be the next X-Factor judge?

Octavia Spencer Wants Her Boobs Done

Octavia Spencer was a-freakin-mazing in The Help and it has brought her some big time accolades. Not only has she won a Golden Globe and SAG award, she is up for Best Supporting Actress at Sunday’s Academy Awards.

Spencer recently spoke with Parade magazine about her incredible year, her early days in show business, and the big ticket gift she is giving herself (yes, she is getting her boobs done).

Check out the highlights below:

ON WHAT SHE DID BEFORE SHE BECAME FAMOUS:

“I was a production assistant. I saw what people who are full of themselves are like—another reason not to lose your humility! I have a mouth on me so I wasn’t the best PA.”

ON WHEN SHE HEARD HER NAME ANNOUNCED AS A WINNER:

”I’m shocked. It’s very, very humbling that people are singling out that performance.”

ON HER FAVORITE ENCOUNTER:

“I can’t say one experience is better than the other one but if I had to, I would say Steven Spielberg. I saw him quite a few times and he was always smiling. And I literally probably looked like a stalker. He and Oprah. They’re right there together. Oprah changed my dream of what I could be and Steven influenced every ounce of my artistry. I think he’s just the best ever. The fact that I got to do a movie for his studio and had conversations with him is like ‘Oh my God.’”

ON WHAT IT WAS LIKE GROWING UP IN A BIG FAMILY (BEING THE SIXTH OF SEVEN CHILDREN):

“I honestly wouldn’t know how it would be without that many siblings. I was a big reader and sometimes it was like I didn’t have brothers or sisters at all because I would be in a corner somewhere reading. We all have one or two we talk to all the time but we all are pretty close.”

ON HER SPLURGE GIFT:

“Well, I am going to get my boobs lifted. That’s going to be my first gift. I’m going to do that. I figured going into my forties I want my boobs where they were when I was 17.”

ON IF SHE IS GOING TO DO THE PROCEDURE PRE- OR POST-OSCARS:

“Oh definitely post because right after the Oscars I start a Diablo Cody movie. We’re taping out of the country for four months so I wouldn’t be back here until about August. So I would want to do this around November. Then that way I could just relax until January.”

Jordin Sparks Pays Tribute to Whitney Houston

Jordin Sparks took the stage at Essence magazine’s Black Women in Hollywood to honor her late “Sparkle” co-star and idol Whitney Houston.

Before Sparks performed one of the songs from their upcoming moving she told the audience, “She went from being this unreachable supernova pop star to my co-star to my friend.”

Of her tribute for Whitney, Sparks told Access Hollywood, “I’m being a part of the tribute for Whitney, I was already going to do it and sing a song from the movie… and then all the recent events happened and now I’m going to be singing a song that she actually sang but is also in the movie…It makes me very emotional. I looked up to her, I sang her songs, and then I met her face-to-face and she was so kind, she was so sweet. I am just very blessed to have got to know her for the short time that I did. She was incredible.”

Other big names that attended the event at the Beverly Hills Hotel included: Octavia Spencer, Kerry Washington, Paula Patton, Pam Grier and Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rimes, who were all honored for their work.

Gerard Butler Was in Rehab?

Apparently so. Gerard Butler is in the process of getting OUT of rehab. It seems as if he has had some big fat problems with substance abuse as of late and is getting himself straight. Apparently he has been spending the last three weeks in the Betty Ford Clinic in California.

According to a report,

the star started struggling with pain medication as he battled to recover from injuries he suffered on the set of 2006 movie 300 and his problems were exacerbated after he was hurt in a surfing accident during filming of his latest project, Of Men and Mavericks.

And now TMZ is reporting that Butler is on his way out to be released!

Butler has had trouble in the past with booze but he gave it up when he was 27 (he is now the ripe age of 42).

Butler was previously quoted as saying, “It’s been years now and it’s like it never happened. I can’t remember drinking. When I stopped I would look at a beer and think how great it would be. I’d get this pang in my stomach to go back out and have fun, but then I’d remember that I used up that right – that I did a full life worth of drinking between 14 and 27. That I’d done enough drinking for half a dozen people. Now I have no connection with it.”

Well apparently he missed getting crunk ‘cuz he went at it again. Here’s hoping that rehab worked for Gerard!

Ray J’s Death Of the Cheating Man Book Sells Out Kim Kardashian

Ray J may not have gotten the sex tape credit as his partner (at the time) Kim Kardashian got (heck, she got FAMOUS off that damn thing), but now is his time, I guess. He’s waited long enough, right? Equal opportunity profit, people!

In a new book that he co-authors called the “Death of the Cheating Man”, Ray seems to sell out his relationship with his ex Kim, saying that she is a big fat cheater! Sure he admits that he liked to stray from time to time, but Kim is no saint.

Kim was first married to Damon Thomas and back in 2010, Damon told In Touch Weekly that Kim cheated on him. He said, “I saw my wife with another man [Jennifer Lopez’s ex, Cris Judd], wearing the clothes that we had just bought after her lipo. It was not something as a husband you ever wanted to see.” Not only that but Kardashian is said to have cheated with multiple men all while she kept Damon around to pay for plastic surgery and a lavish lifestyle.

And now Life & Style has some excerpts from Ray J’s co-written book, Death of the Cheating Man: What Every Woman Must Know About Men Who Stray. And um, yeah. Ray J recalls in the book that ”She let me know she wanted to get with me [while she was married]. She left her husband for me as soon as we started having sex.” Wow.

But even though she did some sweet (but kind of creepy) things for her man including putting toothpaste on his toothbrush, greeting him with hot towels AND giving him lingerie fashion shows at night, she was very clingy and jealous. Ray J added, “She wanted to know where I was at all times. She literally thought I was cheating with every girl I ran across.”

Not so surprising.

As for how Kim feels about the release of this book? A source said, ”Kim’s putting on a brave face, but she’s furious about Ray J cashing in on her. There’s so much that has gone wrong for her this year, he’s just another person trying to humiliate her.”

So ahem…who released the sex tape? Who profited off the tape? Mmmhmmm.

If the truth is humiliation then so be it. It’s the price of fame that Kim obviously wasn’t ready for. You can get the plastic surgery, the expensive cars and the other materialistic items that you so longed for, but you get the other side too!
