Gawker reported today in its gossip roundup that the two were “whisper-fighting” on an Amtrak train to Washington, and while the brawl never escalated into a full-fledged fight, Lindsay was apparently talking smack about VP nominee Sarah Palin and advocating for herself rather than the couple.  The most troubling thing about this item?  The fact that Lindsay has to ride around the nation on a train than, say, in a private chauffered limo.  Ruh-oh…

Conseco Claims He Was Madonna’s Original Bat Boy

Posted by thelanetrain on July 11, 2008

The whole A-Rod/Cynthia/Madonna clusterfuck is getting bigger, juicer, and more complex by the second it seems.  Now, the press has been able to drag yet another celebrity into the mix.  This time, it’s former slugger and steroid enthusiast Jose Conseco.  Conseco told Us Weekly that in 1991, he visited Madonna at her Hollywood Hills home and she tried to seduce him, even though he was married.  That’s odd, because usually married men don’t usually go to another woman’s house alone.  While there, Madonna told Conseco that she wanted a Cuban baby with him and that she kissed him.  When he asked about support, her response was:

“I have lots of money. Don’t worry about that.”

Man, and that was back in 1991, when the Dollar was actually worth something!

Also, Conseco hates A-Rod’s guts because supposedly, Rodriguez hit on Conseco’s wife once.  Shocker!  I hope she joins the many women who are lining up to take a crack at the flirtatious Yank.

Oh My God, It’s Over…Kinda

Posted by thelanetrain on July 9, 2008

Today is a sad day for tabloids across America.  For you see, it was on this day that the family of murder victim and exploited child pageant star JonBenet Ramsey was FINALLY CLEARED, OK?  The DNA tests show that John Ramsey, his dead wife Patsy, and their children DID NOT KILL JONBENET, OK?  So everyone who thinks that the parents did it and that this was all a huge conspiracy can SHUT THE FUCK UP (that includes you, NATIONAL ENQUIRER).  Now until the real killer steps forward and claims responsibility, everyone just shut up and GET ON WITH YOUR LIVES.  THIS CASE IS PRETTY MUCH DEAD.

Meanwhile, OJ is still on the lookout for the real killer.  14 years and counting…

It’s Official: A-Rod and C-Rod Strike Out

Posted by thelanetrain on July 7, 2008

Good news everyone!  Grinding those gears at the rumor mill actually works!  According to the New York Daily News, Cynthia Rodriguez officially filed for divorce today in Miami, citing infidelity and “numerous extramarital affairs” as the chief reasons for seeking a split from her slugger husband.  While Madonna is not explicitly mentioned in the divorce papers, one can only imagine that last week’s screaming headlines from the New York Newsbloids probably lended a hand in the divorce filing, oh and that affair with the hooker too.

After The Jump: More details on the divorce, plus a special message from Madge

Rural France Discovers What L.A. Residents Have Been Doing For Years

Posted by thelanetrain on June 18, 2008

It seems that you can’t even go to the ends of the Earth to get rid of fame and celebrity. The media circus has followed Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to the small town of Correns, France. Then, Correns was a small village nestled in Provence, with plenty of wine and organic crops. Now, almost overnight, it has become a paparazzi hotspot as the aforementioned couple have recently moved to a villa there. Cross this village right off of your “quiet escapes” list.

But, the residents are taking back the town. According to Reuters via Yahoo News, the townsfolk are wildly profiting off of the new influx of photogs. Hotels and restaurants in the area are experiencing a surge in business. And while some of the local residents are complaining about the unwanted media attention, some locals are being enticed by this golden offer:

“You will be treated to a free glass of pastis if you can get a particularly silly story published,” mischievous residents said, declining to be named.

Aww sweet! So it’s like everyone in Correns is going to act as if they work for Star, or Us Weekly, or even Page Six! Maybe one of the local townsfolk could even get Julia Allison’s old job, or someone will start selling Star Maps. We’ll keep you posted when Le Journal des Célébrités du Correns is published.
