Did Jennifer Lopez have a wardrobe malfunction while presenting with Cameron Diaz at the 2012 Oscars last night? I sure as heck didn’t see one as all I could wonder was what Diddy (who was seated one row behind and a seat or two away from where Cam was sitting) was thinking. “Yeah, I hit the skins with both those women” or “Damn, I wish I could take both these women to my crib, have them bathe in a tub full of avocados while feeding each other figs on a stick and boozing on Ciroc Vodka.” Come on, you KNOW Diddy had some cray cray thoughts going through his mind.
Despite the rumors of a “slip”, I didn’t see it and J. Lo’s stylist is also saying that nothing happened. Mariel Haenn told Extra that “The Oscar dress was custom made for Jennifer by designer Zuhair Murad. The dress fit perfectly to her every inch. There were cups built in and there’s no chance that there were any, how do you say? ‘slips’. While the dress did give the illusion of sheer-ness, jokes on everyone who wishes they saw something! If you thought that dress was hot wait until you see what’s next.”
Oh snap, girl! I will say, the dress was bootylicious!
Sacha Baron Cohen dumped ashes on Ryan Seacrest and his fabulous suit at the Oscars last night. Yes, Cohen kept his promise to arrive at the Oscars in character as The Dictator Admiral Aladeen, the leader of fictional country Wadiya, and he ended up dropping fakes ashes (of Kim Jong-iL) all over the red carpet and Seacrest.
When he strolled through the red carpet, Cohen refused to come out of character carrying around a gold jar around that he said had the contents of Kim Jon-iL. He told Ryan, “It was his dream to come to the Oscars and to be sprinkled over the red carpet and over Halle Berry’s chest.”
It was after he tipped the urn’s “ashes” all over Seacrest that a couple of bogus security guards pretended to escort him away.
Ryan was quoted as saying, “Part of me thought he would be up to something… I had an idea something was coming.” Co-host Kelly Osbourne thought the moment was hilarious as heck stating, “Unbelievable… That was probably the most priceless moment on TV that I’ve shared with you ever.”
From what it sounds like, the gig was planned but how funny would it have been had it been not staged. I’m sure the only stipulation for Cohen to arrive on the carpet in character would be to let errone who needed to know know what was going to go down.
What do you think? Was this red carpet moment staged?
While the Oscars 2012 Red Carpet gave us lot of style stunners, as always, there were the fashion flops. Dictators, neons with lace and floating bodices all made my list of fashion fails. See my worst after the jump.
Ah Oscars, the culmination of Awards Season. All the celebs keep their best gowns and jewels hidden until the big night. What will be the trends this year? In the past we’ve seen pastels dominate the red carpet, sequins sparkle and, natch, millions of dollars in diamonds.
So who sparkled and who fell flat? Take a look below at my list of Style Stars for the Red Carpet Arrivals on Oscar Night 2012.
Michelle Williams: nominated for My Week with Marilyn, her Louis Vuitton dress looked red on camera (described as coral by Michelle herself), but the ruffles, brooch, all made this peplum gown perfection on her.

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.

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.
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?
