I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I agree with the findings. I am a very good friend. I wouldn't recommend getting on my bad side, however. The other side of me is no strawberry...
Rome 27-04-2005 Tom Cruise with its new fiancee Katie Holmes,an American actress, is arrives in Rome this morning (6.00am) with a private airplane from the U.S.A., and has taken a suite in the Hassler Hotel, the same Hotel of the last vacation of love with Penelope Cruz before theirs split. Tom has made to find in the suite, an enormous bunch of red roses and a ring for its Katie. The brace is only exited for supper to the Piperno restaurant the same restaurant where it went with Penelope last time.I agree with her that something MUST be lost in the translation from Italian to English... Or, maybe not. Seems a little rushy-rushy to me.
ABDUL ACCUSED OF SEDUCING 'IDOL' CONTESTANTScandalous!
"American Idol" judge Paula Abdul has vigorously denied accusations she paid one of the hit TV show's contestants to have a secret affair with her.
Corey Clark, 24, is writing a book in which he claims the 42-year-old singer paid his expenses and promised to pay $2 million toward his pop career if he kept their romance secret.
Clark -- who was thrown off the show after TV bosses discovered he'd assaulted his teenage sister and resisted arrest -- also claims Abdul threatened to ruin his music career plans if he told anyone about their relationship.
He tells the Globe tabloid, "She warned me, 'Don't screw me over or you'll be sorry.'"
But Abdul's spokesman insists, "Paula Abdul disputes the allegations contained in Corey Clark's book proposal."

IS IT A GIRL FOR SPEARS?
Britney Spears' publicist has accidentally revealed the sex of the singer's baby is a girl, after responding to reports of the pregnant star's alleged weekend hospitalization.
The pop star, 23, and husband Kevin Federline, 27, announced they were expecting their first child together on Spears' official Web site on Tuesday, but they did not reveal the gender.
When journalists phoned Spears' spokespeople to find out if the star was OK following an alleged health scare in Florida over the weekend, they inadvertently revealed the couple were expecting a girl.
Spears' publicist Leslie Sloan says, "She's OK. Mother and daughter are doing fine."
Paris Hilton says she wants to freshen "The Simple Life" by bringing in a new sidekick.
Stumbled upon Adium X at APPLEGEEKS. Adium is a multi-protocol IM client for Mac OS X that uses libgaim. Neat! Anything that reminds the world of disco duck must be good! Even if he's wearing his lederhosen... Does anyone else remember there being a disco duck cartoon on television in the 80s? Or, is my imagination messing with me again?
NO OUSTER FOR 'IDOL'As a woman, I am conflicted. Should AI allow Scott to be an *idol* when part of himself as a human being is mired with a violent past? Aren't they sending the wrong message to men? "Oh, it's okay if you beat your baby's mama, that has nothing to do with your singing ability, and you were up front about it so thanks for your honesty." I think the least they should do is require him to go to anger management counselling, or something! Acknowledge the problem rather than sweeping it under the carpet, which sweeps the battered women and future battered women under that carpet too. ... hmph.
"American Idol" finalist Scott Savol was once arrested after a confrontation with his son's mother -- but it won't cost the singer his shot at stardom.
Although several past contestants have been booted for not disclosing arrests, Savol was "forthcoming to the 'American Idol' producers and the network regarding his misdemeanor" and "the situation did not warrant his disqualification," Fox said in a statement Thursday.
Ohio police documents posted on The Smoking Gun Web site said Savol, now 28, had a confrontation with Michele Martin in February 2001. According to a Shaker Heights Police Department report, the couple had decided to separate, but when Savol arrived at Martin's mother's home to collect his belongings, he called Martin "several vulgar names,""pulled an engagement ring off her finger" and "stated he was also going to take their son."
When Martin threatened to call police, Savol shoved her, pulled the phone from her hand and then threw it at her, striking her in the chest and causing the phone to break, the police report said.
Savol was arrested on a felony domestic violence charge but pleaded to misdemeanor disorderly conduct. He was fined $500, ordered to complete an anger management or domestic violence program, placed on a year's probation and sentenced to a suspended 20-day jail term, according to the Web site.

I totally suck. I thought that I could get away with using whatever pictures I found and now I know that I was wrong. I have to pay for all the pictures that I used and therefore don't really feel like blogging anymore. I hope you all understand. I doubt that I will start blogging again. I think I've learned a valuable lesson. I'm sorry, and I'll miss you all :(
"MARCH 31--An "American Idol" finalist was once arrested for felony domestic violence after roughing up his infant son's mother during a Valentine's Day fracas, The Smoking Gun has learned. According to police, 28-year-old Scott Savol, one of the remaining nine "Idol" contestants, was busted following a February 2001 confrontation with Michele Martin at the woman's Ohio home." MoreI really like Scott's voice, but I'm not sure he can be an "idol" if he's an abuser...
