DIONNE WARWICK HAS A HISTORY OF FINANCIAL HIJINKS

Don’t waste your sympathy on singer Dionne Warwick, who declared bankruptcy this week. Dionne was the Whitney Houston of her day and had 56 hit songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart between 1962 and 1998. She was spokesperson for The Psychic Friends Network, and their TV ads with 900 numbers bilked gullible viewers out of untold millions from 1991 to 1998. Dionne earned well over 3 million dollars a year for that job. Later she founded The Warwick Foundation supposedly to raise money for AIDS, but an investigation proved that 90% of the money donated actually went to pay for Dionne’s fancy lifestyle and salaries for employees. The foundation dissolved in disgrace. Dionne owes the IRS and the state of California ten million dollars in taxes and we can only hope she pays up like the rest of us have to.

LISA RINNA IS TRYING TO PUT THE ANNOYING STAR JONES OUT OF HER MIND

This season’s Celebrity Apprentice turns out to have more drama and backstabbing than any of the “Housewives” shows and we can’t take our eyes off it. This particular reality show seems to push participants into revealing more about their personalities than we ever imagined. Sure, we expected Star Jones to clash with another BIG personality NeNe Leakes, but who knew she would drag Lisa Rinna over the coals? And Lisa (above, with daughter) revealed her feelings in a number of tweets and emails that insulted Star so much that Star naturally turned to the NBC legal department for help. As juicy as this was, it’s hard to top Dionne Warwick’s arrogance and sense of entitlement. We knew she had some dubious financial dealings (TV psychic business and charity fund raising) but we never knew she could be so MEAN! Bring it on, Donald!

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
