Mr. Skin Goes Meta with Californication Kudo

Yes, we know – the Top 10 Celebrity Nude Scenes of 2012 announced this week by the Chicago connoisseurs who run mrskin.com is not typically the kind of thing we cover at FishbowlLA. But #9 on this year’s list was too meta to pass up.

The scene in question, from Californication episode “At the Movies,” is all about an attractive Hollywood actress (Sarah Power) well aware that she has been hired because of her willingness to show her breasts in a movie. What makes the scene doubly meta is that when she nervously flashes her upper-body assets to screenwriter Hank (David Duchovny) in his trailer ahead of her nude scene, he ends his praise with: “… and nab yourself a Mr. Skin Award in the bargain.”

Pepperdine Drops Libel Lawsuit Against Malibu Vlogger

Cary O’Neal, who goes by the YouTube and Facebook handle of “Mr. Malibu,” now admits he was wrong.

Contrary to his previous video reports “Pepperdine Recklessly Dumps Sewage on Malibu Beach” and “Luxury Beach Homes of Adam Sandler, Tom Hanks, David Duchovny and Pink Under Siege,” Pepperdine University was not the source of contaminated storm water runoff into Marie Canyon. The school filed an April 11 libel suit against O’Neal, which – according to the Malibu Surfside News – it has now agreed to drop in exchange for a public retraction. The paper reprinted the apology, received via email from O’Neal:

Please consider this letter a retraction of my statements. I acknowledge that these statements were inaccurate. Pepperdine does not operate the Malibu Mesa Water Reclamation Facility and does not discharge sewage or sewage effluent into Marie Canyon or any other location. Instead, Malibu Mesa is operated by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works.

Levi Johnston is standing naked in a 13th-floor studio in midtown Manhattan holding a hockey stick.

He swivels his head and looks into the camera as — click — the photo is taken. This is the money shot: the one Daniel Nardicio is tweeting about right now; the one Levi’s manager Tank Jones will gush about to Us Weekly; and the one Gawker and Life & Style and a cajillion other gossip outlets will mention as proof positive that, in the words of Tank Jones, “You’ll see what you need to see in these photos.”

The Tucker Max Movie Script

Max_Tucker_07.jpg Top douche bag blogger Tucker Max (who totally ripped off Mayrav’s drag king name) script for the movie based on his book is making the rounds on the internet. We have not read the who thing. We did read a couple of pages on Gawker just now…

We don’t know what all the fuss it about. Everyone is saying how horrible is it. Uhm – ever seen Californication? It’s like that if David Duchovny was replaced by the flesh eating virus.

That lucky so-and-so got get her fangirl on at Wondercon last week, where she heard Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny and X-Files creator/deity Chris Carter talk about the new X-Files film coming out this summer. Well, actually, she didn’t get to hear much. “The fans screamed throughout the whole 45 minutes.”
