Sympathy for Credit-Challenged Celebs Maxed Out

Sometimes, the unlikeliest Internet content can surface from the unlikeliest of online sources. Take today’s Op Ed from the Austin, TX newsroom of CreditCards.com, actually one of the more legitimate players in this field rather than a purveyor of search engine cluttering SEO content.

In pointing to upside-down SoCal big spenders such as Timothy Busfield, Heidi Montag (pictured) and Lenny Dykstra, contributor Ann Brenoff makes the very valid point that the public’s tolerance for such behavior in today’s decimated United States of Jobless Recovery America has waned. But what really caught our attention is the famous sidekick she tied the public opinion shift to.

RNC Caught Up in WeHo Bondage Theme Club Scandal

Reagan GOP.jpg
Look this is LA, we welcome perverts from all partisans. You have money, you just bring your bondage loving cash and you have a place to park your sleazy keister.

The Republican National Committee is tied up in a bit of a controversy about hanging out at a bondage club in WeHo. POLITICO reported over a month ago that RNC Chairman Micheal Steele has been spending twice as much as his predecessors on private planes, lavish dinners and flowers. So this latest spending spree of over $9000 at the Beverly Hills Hotel isn’t really news. What did make a mini-scandal of the day is the Federal Election Commission investigating whether Steele dropped nearly $2000 at the bondage themed club Voyeur.

Steele denies he was there. But someone got reimbursed for “dinner and a show.” And since Heidi Montag is also a regular, maybe its where Christians and Republicans can meet each other in LA.

Note, we are not Vegas and what happens here – gets broadcast.

Help Get WebNewser’s Steve Krakauer Out Of Here

celebrity.png Despite what the title of this post suggests, we are quite fond of our colleague from WebNewser and TVNewser, Steve Krakauer. So, when we heard he was competing in the “I’m a Blogger…Get Me Out of Here!” contest, we wanted to help him out.

The winner of the contest, which is part of promotional efforts for NBC‘s upcoming reality show “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!”, will get sent to Costa Rica to blog during the show. And since Steve professes that this is his “lifelong dream,” we had to do our part and vote. And you should, too!

Here’s a little bit more info about the contest, from its Web site:

We pit bloggers against each other in a contest to see who can survive to the final round, and win a trip to live blog behind the scenes at the “I’m a Celebrity” set in Costa Rica!

Three rounds will present our bloggers with challenges about bugs, beauty, being a celebrity and surviving the jungle. And you decide who makes it to the next round.

Check out Steve’s first post about bullet ants (no thank you) and botflies (yuck). We were worried that, were he to win, Steve might encounter these scary creepy crawlers when he gets to Costa Rica. But thankfully, bloggers don’t get to go outside much. But unfortunately, we think Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are more scary than bullet ants anyway.

Heidi and Spencer To Be Married Tomorrow…We Think

We were shown an email on a Blackberry inviting the recipient to the wedding of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt tomorrow in Pasadena.

Ah, you crazy kids and your vows…

Spencer Pratt And Heidi Montag Casting New Reality TV Show

Arguably the most annoying couple ever created by reality television, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are producing a little TV spawn of their own. FBLA editor Tina just spotted the flier below on the USC campus:

You know it’s summer when there is so little TV news to cover, the stuff you write up with your friends over inter-office IM becomes cover stories. It is in this spirit that we give you the Top 10 Reality Show villains, care of TV Guide:

The Envelope: Who Should Win For Best Reality Show Host?

39623831.jpg

We somehow managed to sleep through the news that Reality Show Host had become a new Emmy category, so imagine our startled surprise when we saw this LAT picture-book thingy.

No disrespect to Samantha Harris and that other guy, but Emmy? Are we really ready to ride the slippery slope of reality accolades that might one day lead to a Heidi Montag acceptance speech?

Does Heidi Montag Read the L.A. Times?

Audrina-Partridge.jpgNot even the LAT is safe from evil Heidi Montag. We can’t say for sure that all 168 (at this writing) “thumbs down” reviews for Audrina Patridge’s post on the Times’ new site, The Guide, came from her Hills co-star, but who else in the world has the time — and cares enough — to “boo,” Audrina’s fine, if pedestrian, choices?

If only L.C. were here to guide us through this…
