Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenanigans!
Doherty In Debt: Former “Beverly Hills 90210” bad girl Shannen Doherty hasn’t exactly been a good girl when it comes it paying her state taxes. In news first reported by TMZ, the actress (and first person to get the boot on “Dancing with the Stars” this season) was slapped with a $44,064.58 tax lien by the state of California and a lawsuit by City National Bank for an unpaid $85,000 loan, Access Hollywood has confirmed. When contacted by TMZ, a rep for Shannen said her tax woes would “be taken care of promptly.”
White Wolf & Running Bear Want To Meet With Tribal Leaders: White Wolf and Running Bear (the reality TV pests formerly known as Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt) are really dragging out their Native American name change stunt. After being called about by numerous groups for their name change, Running Bear (Spencer) told TMZ he wants to meet with tribal leaders. “Changing our names to Running Bear and White Wolf isn’t meant to be disrespectful … we respect [Native American] heritage and have a sincere acknowledgment of their beautiful culture,” Running Bear said, while running his mouth. “[White Wolf and I] would like to invite any Native American tribal leaders to meet with us to help us further understand their culture.” We’ll assume that all these two know about their culture is what they’ve gleaned from “Dances With Wolves” and “Pocahontas.”
Chelsea Handler Slams White Wolf & Running Bear: Don’t expect to see the Native American named reality stars on “Chelsea Lately” anytime soon. The sassy late night talk show host stopped by “Larry King Live” on Thursday and revealed why she’ll never book “The Hills” stars. “It’s like Heidi and Spencer Montag or Pratt whatever their names are, who I call Herpes 1 and Herpes 2… I really wouldn’t want them on the show either… It’s a silly show, but it’s not a gross show,” Chelsea explained, adding that she’d love to take over for Larry when he retires – which might even save her life “Hopefully you’ll retire soon so I can take over a job like this. If I have to talk about Kate Gosselin for one more year, I’ll probably shoot myself in the head.”
