Sunday Survey: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

It was another wild week in Hollywood! Let’s take a look:
The two biggest stars in the “Twilight” constellation will be coming to screens near you in new roles. Gossip Cop confirmed that Robert Pattinson will STILL – contrary to Internet whispers – be involved in the upcoming “Bel Ami” (although not in another rumored role), and Kristen Stewart will be tapped by director James Woods for the lead in “An American Girl,” with her camp giving Gossip Cop exclusive confirmation and comments.
And while some mags had to settle for making nasty claims about Stewart, Interview actually got to speak with her, and we showed some behind-the-scenes video from her cover photo shoot.
We also confirmed that producers are planning to arrange a special United Kingdom fan event with cast members for “New Moon” before the film’s world premiere in Los Angeles. We hope to have new details as soon as possible.
This spot isn’t necessarily reserved for Perez Hilton, but “Scoop” managed this week to be wrong about casting, sexuality, philanthropy, and pregnancy. He hit for the cycle!
Hilton first demonstrated his talent for publishing anything that hits his inbox without checking the facts when he ran with a story about Lindsay Lohan signing on to “Celebrity Big Brother.” (Yeah, she’s not.)
Then he blasted Bob Dylan as a “sell-out” for pairing with a bank on his upcoming Christmas album, even scrawling “I [heart] $$$” on his picture. Um, Perez? Every single penny is going to charity. Oops.
What about Derek Hough? “Hold onto your skirt there, hun!” snipes Perez, who tauntingly asks, “Is it dark in that closet of yours, Derek?” According to the blogger, the Dancing with the Stars performer is a “gayface.” Not surprisingly, Perez provides . . . zero evidence. Once again, Perez can’t get his facts straight – like Hough.
Finally, Journalism’s Joker made Mariah Carey pregnant. Battling medical science and his own track record in this area, Perez examined a photo of Carey performing and decided that she’s with child. And . . . she’s not. Gossip Cop can’t wait until Doc Hilton reports pregnancies for Betty White and Cloris Leachman next week!
The week’s most stunning story was David Letterman‘s “sextortion” drama. While everyone scrambled to make heads or tails of the shocker, Gossip Cop remembered a weird personal moment from the Emmys four years ago - when we stumbled upon and interviewed both Letterman and Stephanie Birkitt, the woman now at the center of the scandal. They did seem to have a particular closeness.
