Two Men Arrested In Frightening Plot To Murder Joss Stone

CelebritiesDirt Bag

Yikes. Two men were arrested near the home of Joss Stone; they had in their possession swords, rope and a body bag, as well as maps and aerial photos of Joss’s secluded property. Horrifying. Luckily, police were called when neighbors spotted the two men acting suspiciously near the 24-year-old singer’s rural home. Joss Stone is worth about $15 million; her 2007 album Introducing Joss Stone went to No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. She’s sold more than 10 million albums worldwide. And! Joss is friends with Prince William and attended his wedding in April. [AP]

As you may know, Crystal Harris was supposed to marry Hugh Hefner on Saturday — in front of 300 guests — but that is not gonna go down. She’s written a statement which reads: “After much deep reflection and thought I have decided to end my engagement with Hef. I have the utmost respect for Hef and wish him the best going forward. I hope the media will give each of us the privacy we deserve during this time.” Ok, sure, have your privacy. It’s not gonna stop us from trying to guess what happened. In addition to the Aztec heart-changing spell, I enjoy this theory: “It was probably because she has her own show lined up on E! about how she moved on from her shattered engagement and is single and loving it! It is sad. What is more sad is that I will watch it. Damn you, E!” [People]

Whoa: It says here that Crystal Harris secretly plotted to play runaway bride for a half a million dollar media deal. According to a source: “Crystal wanted to ditch Hef at the altar. Her plan was to walk up the aisle and say she couldn’t go through with it. The wedding was to be filmed for a reality special, and her refusal to marry him would be a sensation. She was looking for a tie-in deal of around $500,000 for the exclusive ‘I ditched Hef at the altar’ interview. While there was interest, Crystal didn’t get an offer anywhere near half a million.” What a beautiful country we live in. [Page Six]

Crystal Harris denies that Dr. Phil‘s son Jordan McGraw is the reason she broke up with Hef. Her rep says: “They wrote a song together and that was the extent of their relationship.” Guess what? The track hit iTunes Monday. [People]

Kendra Wilkinson says she would console Hugh Hefner with a Jack and Coke and a pipe. [People]

Eva Longoria tells InStyle: “I wear braces.” And: “Mascara is very important. If I were on a desert island, I would have to have mascara and lip balm.” Plus, she loves heels: “I love designer shoes. There’s this pair in my closet by Versace, and they must be 8 inches – crazy tall!” Some of her shoes are for decoration only: “They’re not to wear; they’re just to look really pretty in the closet,” she says. “They are art!” [People]

Damn, Eva Longoria has good breakup advice. She says: “One thing I did learn is you don’t hold on to the bitterness of the loss; you hang on to the beauty of the love. Remember all the good things. There was a reason you met someone and a reason why you were together.” Also: “I wish nothing but the best for him. He’s not a bad person. He just wanted something else.” Sniffle. [Contact Music]

Jennifer Lopez is not sure if she’ll do a second season of American Idol: “You know, this is the question of the hour. I don’t know, I don’t know,” she says. “I had an amazing time doing it and I loved it but I have a lot of other things happening and it’s gonna come down to making a choice of really what I want to do for the next year.” Which is exactly what you say when you are negotiating to get more money and a better contract.

Of course Kim Kardashian‘s wedding registry includes an $8,000 vase. This is not shocking. It’s more shocking that she didn’t just set up some kind of public event where she sits on a throne and is showered with precious jewels and treasures. Or maybe that is in the works. QuickTrim can sponsor. [NY Post]

If the vahze is not your steeze, you may buy Kim Kardashian a $1,250 spoon or an $840 ashtray. [Contact Music]
