Now, normally we don't cover political stories here at Celebrity Milkshake, but when they involve sex tapes, abortions and idiots, you bet your ass we do. Former Presidential-candidate John Edwards first said he did not cheat on his wife, despite there being photos of him with another woman. Then he came out and said he DID have an affair. Awesome. Now, his aide has written a book and is saying ... well ... this:
John Edwards' former aide, Andrew Young, claims in an upcoming interview with 20/20 that the former presidential candidate made a sex tape with his mistress, Rielle Hunter, and that Edwards pleaded with Hunter to get an abortion in 2007, ABC News reports.
Young and his wife, Cheri, found a sex tape they believe Edwards and Hunter "made just a couple of months before the Iowa caucuses," Young tells the news outlet. Although it's not clear if the woman in the tape is Hunter, Cheri Young said the woman in the video is wearing a bracelet and a thumb ring normally worn by the senator's former mistress.
Young also claims in the interview that Edwards tried to persuade Hunter to have an abortion. "The senator tried to convince her to have an abortion. ... He tried to convince me to convince Rielle to have an abortion," Young told the news outlet. He also said Hunter asked what he would do in the same situation and Young claims he told her he would not do it.
Edwards claimed paternity of Hunter's daughter for the first time last week. He and his wife of 32 years, Elizabeth, have since legally separated. Young's full interview will air on 20/20 this Friday. His book on Edwards and his extra-marital affair, The Politician, hits stores Jan. 30. (AP)
Hilarious! Man, there is never a better time to be an aide to a politician - those guys are always getting into wacky hi jinx! It'd be like living in a sitcom ... A mostly boring, government-regulated, paperwork-filled sitcom. Huzzah!
(Attention) whore Denise Richards is milking the fact that she was married to Charlie Sheen and that Charlie Sheen is kind of insane. And although Charlie pulled a knife on his current wife,
Denise had it worse. WAY WORSE. Get this - she was yelled at and pushed by him. *Gasp!*
Say it's not so.
Denise Richards told Oprah Winfrey that ex-husband Charlie Sheen was verbally abusive to her during their marriage.
"There were times during the marriage where there was a lot of verbal abuse. He never hit me," Richards told Winfrey on Tuesday's Oprah Winfrey Show. "It was a lot of verbal arguments [that] got extremely heated [and] that scared me. ... I think that Charlie has a very sharp tongue."
Though Richards claimed Sheen never physically abused her, she did, however, tell Winfrey that Sheen pushed her.
Richards said that dealing with the public scrutiny during their contentious divorce was very difficult. "There were times where, especially when I filed the restraining order, I was humiliated. I was embarrassed," she said. "Of course when things are so public and being called all these things, it was very, very difficult. I hit rock-bottom during all of this."
Richards' children — Sam, 5, and Lola, 4 — gave her the courage to move forward. "I did not want this life for them," she said.
Richards, who said that she and her ex-husband are in a "great place now," called the situation between Sheen and his current wife, Brooke Mueller, "very sad." "They have two little baby boys. Their dad was, you know, in jail on Christmas," she said. "On the other hand, I think perhaps people can understand what I was going through a little bit."
Oh yes, we're all so sorry for your loss, Denise. It's a good thing you have a thriving career and great looks to keep you going or you might be on the verge of killing yourself ... oooooh, never mind.
Kiefer Sutherland was roped into a scam and lost thousands of dollars. What is it you ask? Illegal art deal? Awesome weapons shipment? Counterfeit money ring? ... How about he tried to buy cattle and got ripped off. Man, that's so not awesome. Come on Keifer, if you're going to look like a chump, at least go down swinging.
Actor Kiefer Sutherland was among cattle customers roped into an alleged scam that netted more than a million dollars.
Prosecutors say Michael Wayne Carr of Linden had agreements to buy steers in Mexico for his customers and sell them for profit in the United States. Carr allegedly took $869,000 from Sutherland, star of the Fox TV show "24," and $177,000 from a New Mexico couple.
Prosecutors say there's no record Carr ever bought the steers. They also say Carr sold steers that didn't belong to him.
Carr is charged with 12 felonies, including grand theft, forgery and embezzlement. He was scheduled to be arraigned Monday, but a judge postponed it to Feb. 8 after his attorney was removed.
If convicted on all charges, he faces 18 years in prison.(AP)
Well Keifer, you know what they say: "To err is human, to forgive, bovine!" ... Wait, that joke wasn't funny? Who wrote this crap? Hey, you, writer! Get over here, I'm going to torture you in this dimly lit room. I don't care that you work for peanuts, this is happening now. NOW WHERE'S THE BOMB! WHERE IS IT!
So as part of her body-improvement-or-death campaign,
it's come out that Heidi Montag now has DDD sized breasts. No, I didn't spaz out on the keyboard, that's the correct size. This improvement (and trust me, it's an improvement), has rubbed some people the wrong way - like Tila Tequila, who's only real gift to the world is her gigantic boobs. And since she now has some competition in the big-boobs-and-no-brains department, she immiaidetly went on the offensive by saying this:
"She's gone overboard... Her whole relationship is fake, her whole show is fake, her whole marriage is fake, everything about her is fake. So now it just makes sense that her whole face is fake."
Tila admits to her own plastic surgery, breast augmentation, but believes Heidi, 23, has gone too far.
"She's sending out a really, really, really, really, really, really, really bad message to other young girls out there who might look up to her," Tila told RadarOnline.com. "It's telling these girls, 'Don't feel good about yourself, get as much plastic surgery as you can.'" (Radar Online)
Did Tila really come out and say, in the same interview, that she had plastic surgery but thinks Heidi Montag is setting a bad example for girls because of her boob job ? This coming from the "Queen of MySpace," a place made for 12-year-old idiots? I mean, Tila, I don't expect a lot from you, but come on! Ugh, just stop talking, you sound like an idiot whenever you open your mouth. Actually, wait, never mind - that's exactly what I expect from you. Carry on.
New details have come out in the Tiger Woods fiasco (because I know you've all been holding your breath) - Apparently, it was Elin, Tiger's Wife, who started this whole thing by texting his mistress and pretending to be him. Now, I've said it before and I'll say it again: Guys, for the love of all that is holy, LOCK YOUR FREAKIN' CELL PHONES! I don't care if you've never even looked at another women, chicks go crazy with power, and if they can use your cellphone for evil, THEY WILL!
Elin Nordegren was the one responsible for setting a series of events in motion, which eventually led to husband Tiger Woods' late night Thanksgiving car crash, according to Gerald Posner of The Daily Beast.
"She texted Rachel [Uchitel] pretending she was Tiger, saying, 'I miss you. When am I going to see you again?'" Posner claimed to Access Hollywood on Monday, citing new information from two unnamed sources allegedly close to Elin.

"And Rachel texted back, somewhat surprised that Tiger was awake, which according to Elin's friends told Elin right away that Tiger and Rachel had been in contact that night because obviously Rachel knew that Tiger was taking [Ambien] and going to sleep," Posner claimed. "That's when she called Rachel on the phone and said, 'I knew it was you.'"
However, it wasn't the first time Rachel and Elin had spoken, according to Posner.

Posner also claims that right before Tiger's alleged affair with Rachel was reported by The National Enquirer, he actually called her and put his wife on the phone with her for a half-hour conversation, during which Rachel tried to convince Elin her relationship with the golfer was strictly platonic.
While Rachel's alleged text message response to Tiger on Thanksgiving night may have been a blow to Elin, fueling the fire further was an alleged message from her husband to Rachel that he hadn't erased from his phone, professing his love for Rachel.
"She also found a text message that had not been erased that had been sent to Rachel by Tiger that said, 'You're the one I've always loved,'" Posner added. "That was absolutely crushing."

It was at this point an allegedly enraged Elin woke up her sleeping husband.
"Tiger was actually groggy from the Ambien, but he was still alert enough - or not alert enough in this case - to go into the bathroom And when he came out, Elin grabbed the cell phone he had from his hand and found another text that he had just sent to Rachel saying, in essence, 'The gig is up. She knows. I'm going to be packing. A divorce could be coming,'" Posner continued.
In fact, Posner claims the sources said Elin then became violent.
"That set her off completely - she lost it. She started, I'm told by her friends, to hit him with her fist on his chest and his arms and then grabbed a golf club and he was out of there," he continued.
At which point, Tiger allegedly hopped behind the wheel of his Escalade moments before crashing into a tree and a fire hydrant.
"He went shoeless into his car and that's when he knocked off a hydrant and rammed into a tree," he added.
As for what comes next for Tiger and Elin, a friend reportedly told Posner that Elin is waiting for Tiger to finish rehab treatment before making a final decision on whether or not to file for divorce.
That makes a lot of sense and does fill in some holes. Of course, the one thing I'm still wondering is: Why would you ever marry a crazy, blonde, Sweedish amazonian. Sure, she's hot, but you know what? So is fire - and both are just waiting to kill you when you're not looking... You've been warned.
