Abercrombie Will Pay Jersey Shore Cast To Stop Wearing Its Clothes

CelebritiesDirt Bag

Abercrombie & Fitch is willing to offer a “substantial payment” for the cast of Jersey Shore to stop wearing their clothes. The brand worries that the “association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image. We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans.” Because seeing The Situation wearing an A&F-branded t-shirt is so much less disturbing than that padded swimsuit for little girls.

  • The Kim Kardashian Wedding Kountdown continues: 3 more days. Sources say that along with the wedding invitation, guests were given a strict dress code: “Kim knows better than anyone how to stay dramatic and there is no way she would let herself blend in with everyone else at her wedding by wearing a white dress. If I know her, I bet she will wear red or some color so she pops against everyone else who will be in black or white.” [HuffPo]

  • The reason all of The Talk‘s co-hosts are leaving is because the Chenbot has a “Queen Bee” attitude, citing how she refused to let the co-hosts discuss the Casey Anthony trial on the show when days she wasn’t present.

[HuffPo]
  • There’s a rumor about a film is being made about The Hills. While nobody has been able to confirm this rumor, somebody felt the need to get Lauren Conrad‘s opinion on the matter — just in case it actually comes to fruition, despite the fact that no one would pay to go see that kind of trash in a movie theater — and LC doesn’t want any part of this maybe-movie. And, she’ll have you know that she decided to leave the show, it wasn’t the other ey around: “The Hills was great for me, but I decided to leave it, so that’s something that’s behind me. It’s not for me.” [Life & Style]
  • By the way, ladies: Penn Badgley‘s hair will be much curlier in the upcoming season of Gossip Girl. Is that a new “Brooklyn” trend that Dan knows about but somehow I don’t? And why, when the show was filming outside of my apartment for three days and I walked for two blocks alongside Penn, could I not notice anything other than how skinny his legs were? I could have had this scoop last week. (But really, his legs. Like a chicken’s.) [World Of Wonder]
