BREAKING NEWS: Vince McMahon gets star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame!

YYYOOOOOUUU’RREEEEE FIIIIIREEEEEEDDDDdddd!!!!

Who could ever do a “You’re fired” catchphrase better than he does? Vince McMahon is the only one that can do it!

I was just watching RAW as I’m typing this and Vince McMahon had a promo interview on there, he was saying he just got a star on the Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, and I’m like, it’s a storyline thing. Turns out it wasn’t. It’s the real deal. Vincent Kennedy McMahon, the owner/chairman of the World Wrestling Entertainment just got a star on the Hollywood’s Walk of Fame last Friday.

Of course, Mr. McMahon was in his TV character when he layed down the star on the Walk of Fame, being his usual sick and twisted man he’s always been on TV.

The Associated Press reports:

Congrats Vince! You deserve it!

Vince McMahon is a great TV performer, he’s a very controversial man and knows how to grabs people’s attention. Vince McMahon is crazy in real life just like he is on TV. While I’m sure Vince is a great and wonderful guy in real life, he just creates a lot of crazy storylines for WWE. He’s a powerful business man.

Report: Bill Shat to direct a comedy film…

William Shatner is always keeping himself busy. Does this man ever get bored? I don’t think he does. This guy goes from doing a music album with Ben Folds with his CD “Has Been”, he goes from writing science fiction novels, then he goes back to TV for the show “Boston Legal”, and now the Shat is signed to direct his first comedy film titled “Shiva Crashers”.

The Shat came up with the story himself, not sure if Shatner will write the script for the film as well.

There are a large number of big name stars interested in working with Shatner in the film, as I’m sure Bill Shat himself will play a small cameo in his own film.

I’m glad he’s finally got the opportunity to direct his own comedy film. Everyone knows that Shatner has a hilarious and out of this world sense of humor. With him doing this comedy film, he can finally show off his “comedy” side in a film.

I’m already looking forward to this!

Don’t worry, he won’t get jail time. He’ll probably get put on community service, rehab, and maybe some probation, but he definitely won’t get jail. I just know it.

Report: Nine Inch Nails makes over a million bucks for “Ghosts I-IV”…

Trent Reznor of the Nine Inch Nails revealed that their new internet album “Ghosts I-IV” created heavy traffic and made $1.6 million in total. Fans could download the first 9 songs for free or download the entire 36 track album for $5.00.

Nine Inch Nails will NOT sell their new album to Sound Scan to stop their music for reaching the Billboard Charts.

More on it here:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23674011/

Wow. The band hates the national major label industry this much, eh? I don’t blame them for wanting to stay away from the Billboard charts.

I hope the NIN’s stay unsigned. They prove they can be a successful band even without a label. Trent Reznor seems happy not being a signed band anymore.

Report: Ashley Alexandra Dupre linked to Charlie Sheen too?

Sources are saying that actor Charlie Sheen, who is the son of actor Martin Sheen and the brother of actor Emilio Estevez, Charlie has also been linked to Ashley Alexandra Dupre, yes, the same girl that Elliot Spitzer hooked up with.

Articles claim that Charlie hooked up with Ashley for a steamy lesbian threesome with Ashley, another hooker with both dressed as cheerleaders.

Charlie has publicily admitted to using hookers but denied the Ashley Alexandra Dupre scandal.

Ashley is probably linked to a lot of celebrities out there. What a skank!

Report: It’s a girl for Halle Berry…

Actress Halle Berry just gave birth to a baby girl yesterday. The father is 32 year old male model Gabriel Aubry.

Halle Berry has starred in movies like “X-Men”, “Monsters Ball”, “007 – Die  Another Day”, “Gothika”, “Catwoman”, “Swordfish”, and more.

http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5gA0xoax6TjgPh26AunRvz62RIEHwD8VF5V684

Sources also say that Halle Berry popped her baby at no where other than Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, the same hospital where Dennis Quaid came close to losing his newborn twins and the same hospital that Britney Spears was let free when she wasn’t supposed to.

My question is, what? Celebrity women are still having their babies at that shitty hospital? After the Dennis Quaid controversy?

Thought: Phil Collins in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories game…

I was just playing “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City” stories and I’m at the very end of the game, I have 5 more missions left of it. Phil Collins is an animated character in the videogame and I was thinking if the voice overs of Phil Collins was really done by him.

So I went googling some research information to see if it was done by him.

To my surprise, Phil Collins the man himself is the one doing the voice over playing himself in “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories” videogame.

Here’s an old news story about it before the game even came out back in 2006, it was first released for the Playstation 2, I believe.

http://www.totalvideogames.com/news/Phil_Collins_To_Appear_In_Vice_City_Stories_10844_5221_0.htm

It is confirmed that Phil Collins is the first celebrity to appear in a videogame to play himself. In “GTA: Vice City Stories”, you have to save Phil’s life from getting killed by the mob, it happens in the missions “In the Air Tonight” part 1 and 2 in the videogame.

It is a great videogame. I’m also looking forward to playing “Grand Theft Auto IV” when it comes out to the PS3 on April 28th.
