LAPD Job Ratings UP!
The strong endorsement of the LAPD cuts across racial and ethnic lines, according to a new Los Angeles Times Poll — with the percentages of ablack and Latino voters who say they approve of how the police do their jobs almost as high as the level among white voters. That result is particularly notable given the long history of tensions between the police and the city’s black and Latino communities

Chris Brown Hearing Today to be a Media Spectacle
The crowd expected at this afternoon’s preliminary hearing for R&B singer Chris Brown will be on a different order. Fifty-two media outlets have asked to attend the proceeding, far more than were on hand for Paris Hilton’s re-jailing, Britney Spears’ divorce, the DUI cases of Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie, or the murder trials of Robert Blake or Phil Spector.

Sandra Bullock Tops the Box Office with “The Proposal”
People are giving The Proposal a big “I Do.” The comedy featuring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds finished at No. 1 with 34.1 million dollars in its opening weekend. In other movie news, “The Hangover” and “Ice Age 3D” are great too!

WANTED: Healthcare Reform
Republicans and some Democrats oppose increasing the government’s role in healthcare — it already runs the Medicare and Medicaid systems for the elderly and indigent — fearing it would require vast public funds and reduce the quality of care. But the Times/CBS poll found 85 percent of respondents wanted major healthcare reforms and most would be willing to pay higher taxes to ensure everyone had health insurance. An estimated 46 million Americans currently have no coverage.

I have a newsflash for y’all….if we continue to have politicians at the beckon call of lobbyists and big business who funds their campaigns, we will never have a TRULY representative democracy. Our representatives forget about their constituents because we are not paying for their office runs. Campaign finance reform is the root of this issue, and the only way to solve MANY of our current problems is to force our representatives to actually do their job….REPRESENT US!

Hugh Hefner released a statement to us regarding the pregnancy of ex-girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson.
He says, “I’m really happy to learn that Kendra is pregnant because I know that she and Hank wanted to start a family right away. I think he’s a good guy and they’ll be good for one another.”

50 cent made all that money off vitamin water and now he wants to make you smell good. A rep from Lighthouse Beauty has confirmed that 50 is pairing up with the company to release his first ever men’s cologne called Power by Fifty Cent. The cologne is set to launch exclusively at Macy’s.

Paris Hilton was asked in a recent interview, why is she being interviewed, what she thought about Susan Boyle saying “I think Susan has an amazing voice, but she needs to work on the pose. I think she should come up with something new… since she’s such a huge celebrity now… I suggest getting a stylist. She could look really hot if she just wore some pretty dresses.”

Amanda Bynes was out and about in Studio City the other day and her lips were looking huge. She is giving Lisa Rinna a run for her money

X17online can confirm that Paris Hilton and Doug Reinhardt have called it quits after approximately 6 months of dating. Sources say that Paris was the one who broke up with Doug, after all of Paris’ friends warned her that he was just a publicity hound using her for press, and that he cared more about the cameras than her. Those close to the starlet add that she has nothing bad to say about Doug, but she just feels that they would be better as friends.
Geez that was fast! Less than 24 hours after breaking up with Doug Reinhardt, Paris Hilton is already shacking up with a new man – soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo!

The hot new couple started off their night separately, with Cristiano dining at the Brazilian restaurant Fogo De Chao while Paris and Nicky hit up Nobu, and an X17 source tells X17online exclusively about what began as a girls’ night out:

“The Hilton sisters showed up at about 10:20pm and sat on the outside patio. Paris wasn’t her usual chipper, chatty self – she looked absolutely miserable. She was clearly flying under the radar with her sister last night. She had a couple of cocktails and she was fiddling with her phone throughout the entire meal.”

Hayden Panettiere got robbed

Many Hollywood trends are downright funny—like ladies forgoing pants or the competition heating up on Twitter—but some are seriously disconcerting.

While we doubt it’s all the work of one handyman, the burglarizing of pretty ladies has got to stop. Hayden Panettiere has joined Paris Hilton, Audrina Patridge and Tila Tequila on the frightfully fast-growing list of starlets whose homes have been hit.

The LAPD tells E! News that, indeed, a theft report was taken at the Heroes star’s home on April 10. Panettiere’s rep, Michelle Bega, tells E! News, “We have no further details nor comment.” TMZ is reporting a different date for the incident—April 15—and that $15,000 in jewelry was taken from the 19-year-old’s Los Angeles pad.

They add that a source tells them several people with access to the house were in and out while the actress was away, there were no signs of forced entry and there are no suspects at the moment.

Who knew!!

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 5 /PRNewswire/ — Celebrities have more narcissistic personality traits than the general population, and people with narcissistic tendencies seem to be attracted to the entertainment industry rather than the industry creating narcissists, according to a groundbreaking study conducted by researchers Drew Pinsky of the Keck School of Medicine of USC and S. Mark Young of the USC Marshall School of Business and the USC Annenberg School for Communication.

The study, which will be published in the Journal of Research in Personality (Elsevier), is the first systematic, empirical scholarly study of celebrity personality and was based on a standardized test of narcissistic personality traits administered to 200 celebrities.

“The general public’s understanding of celebrity personality is based largely on anecdotal information such as media interviews,” said Young. “We conducted this study as part of a larger program of research to provide more scientific evidence on what the celebrity personality is really like.”

The authors say they chose narcissism as the topic of the study because it is one of the most widely discussed characteristics of celebrities.

“Narcissists generally crave attention, are overconfident of their abilities, lack empathy, and can evince erratic behavior,” said Pinsky, who is an assistant clinical professor of Psychiatry at USC. “However, they are also well-liked, especially on first meeting, are extroverted and perform well in public.”

To conduct their research Pinsky and Young employed a well-validated personality research instrument, the Narcissistic Personality Inventory (NPI), which has been used by researchers for more than two decades. The NPI test divides narcissism into seven components: superiority, exhibitionism, entitlement, vanity, authority, exploitiveness, and entitlement.

The authors found that the celebrities participating in the study had statistically significantly higher narcissism scores compared to aspiring business leaders (MBA students) and the general population. Reality TV personalities had the highest overall narcissism scores when compared with actors, musicians and comedians.

What’s more, while men are more likely than women to evince narcissistic traits in the general population, the authors found that, among celebrities, females were more narcissistic than their male counterparts.

“Our research also shows that many celebrities exhibit narcissistic behavior prior to becoming famous, which could indicate a self-selection bias for the entertainment industry by certain personality types,” said Young who holds the George Bozanic and Holman G. Hurt Chair in Sports and Entertainment Business at USC. “Knowing that many celebrities have narcissistic tendencies may allow entertainment industry decision makers such as studio executives, producers, directors, agents, publicists and casting agents to work with them more effectively. It may also provide greater insight into celebrity behavior for the general public.”

The research data were collected anonymously and confidentially from celebrities selected at random during guest appearances on the nationally syndicated Westwood One radio show “Loveline,” based at the KROQ-FM radio station in Los Angeles. The celebrities were administered the NPI test during breaks on the show, which Pinsky has hosted for the past 20 years.
