Paris Hiltons Lesbian Secret EXPOSED in VIDEO

Online gossips are having a blast posting about Paris Hilton's HUGE secret lesbian past. A couple years ago it was rumored that Paris had made a sex tape with friend/actress Nicole Lenz in a Bellagio hotel room. Sources say that was indeed true. Also true, is that Paris Hilton has been with several females in Hollywood.

A VERY close friend of Hilton's says Paris has been sexually involved with Lindsay Lohan, Kimberly Stewart, Britney Spears and of course Nicole Lenz.

On top of Hilton's sexual history, it was confirmed to me that she still loves her drugs...Not naming anything in particular, just stating "the usual."

Posh: Becks is Hanging Around Snoop Dogg Too Much

The singer is concerned that her hubby is spending a little too much time with the D-O-Double G. Calvin Broadus AKA Snoop Dogg insists Beckham isn't falling into his Gangsta ways. He says, "I met Posh one time, at the Live 8 concert. She didn't really like me much. She didn't like my bad boy persona. All she knew was, 'Snoop Dogg's a bad guy. I don't want my husband dealing with him - he's going to rub off on my husband.' But now she's seen my (reality TV) show, and I think I'm cool with her now that she knows that I'm family orientated, that I have a structure and a wife."

BuddyTV lands Exclusive Interview with Lacey Rock of Love

Hi this is John from BuddyTV and I'm talking to Lacey Conner, one of the contestants from VH1's Rock of Love. How are you doing Lacey?

I'm doing great! How are you?

I'm good. Now the show has been ... it ended a while ago. What have you been up to since the show set out?

Oh my God, it's been really crazy. For starters, I actually just got signed to an agency called: APA. They are the same agency that represents Brett Michaels so I know they're going to be putting me to work. I'm going to be doing some more stuff with VH1. I'm going to be doing an internet hosting gig for Dean Guitars at the NAMM convention. And I'm doing more music stuff, and I started this dog rescue thing. So I've got a lot of stuff going on. I've got a full plate. Haha.

You definitely do. And with the new representation and doing things with VH1, is there any talk about ... because a lot of these VH1 shows then spawn off other VH1 shows ...

Right. Right.

So is there any other discussion or talk about maybe you starring in sort of your own dating show?

You know, I really wish I could answer that question but we've kind of got to keep it on the down-low right now. Everything's going to be a surprise. So, I can't answer specifically ... but I can tell you I am going to be seen on VH1 in the future and it's going to be fun. It's going to be pretty crazy. I know that's not exactly the answer you wanted to hear, but it's the best I could do for right now.

Okay. And you briefly mentioned your pet rescue that you started up: New Dawn Pet Rescue. I'm just wondering, did you start that up beforehand? Is that since you've been done?

Actually no. I started it right when the show ended. I've always been involved in animal rights, and I always used to go to protests and write letters to congressmen and things of that nature. But I decided I kind of wanted to do a more hands on type of thing. So, as soon as Rock of Love got done taping, I started my own rescue group back in April called New Dawn Pet Rescue. And what I do is I go to the pound, the LA City animal shelter. They have a very high euthanasia rate because there are so many dogs that come in and they get in more dogs than they can adopt out. There just aren't enough homes for all of these dogs. So a lot of really healthy, young dogs that have nothing wrong with them get put to sleep. So I go in and find dogs that are going to be euthanized and take them home. A lot of times too, in the pound, dogs are sick or they have a really severe injury that needs surgery, so I'll take them home. I'll get them whatever medical attention they need. I'll let them recuperate in my house, then I'll keep them as long as it takes to find them a new home so that way there's no risk that they're going to be euthanized. So, that's what I do.

Definitely sounds good. Now, how many dogs do you have at your house right now?

Seth Shifty Binzer - Celebrity Rehab VH1

For down-and-out stars, one getaway seems to be more popular than the Caribbean, Cabo and the Côte d'Azur combined: Rehab.

Looking at last year's photos of Lindsay Lohan leisurely riding horseback at Utah's Cirque lodge and a bald Britney Spears strolling the grounds of California's Promises facility, it's easy to assume that for celebrities, a stint in rehab is no more grueling than a trip to Starbucks or the nail salon.

Dr. Drew Pinsky wants to flush that notion like a bottle of black-market barbiturates.

"People think celebrities are going to some kind of spa treatment program when they go to rehab. They don't understand how hard it actually is," said Pinsky, who attempts to shepherd nine celebrities from drug and alcohol addiction to sobriety in "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew," premiering on VH1 tonight.

"People somehow believe celebrities are different from everyone else," he continued. "They don't understand how much mental disease there is among the famous."

Series like A&E's "Intervention" and HBO's "Addiction" have turned the spotlight on drug and alcohol abuse before. VH1's show is the first to bring a group of addicts together and follow their treatment.

Celebrity Rehab" begins with nine stars checking into the Pasadena Recovery Center. Among them: actor Daniel Baldwin, former pro-wrestler Chyna, VH1 reality series alum Brigitte Nielsen, Crazy Town singer Seth "Shifty" Binzer, and a celeb who recently fell off the wagon again, "American Idol" finalist Jessica Sierra.

Unlike many addicts who are forced into rehab by family, friends or the law, the "Celebrity Rehab" participants came to the program on their own.

"I was past due for needing help," said Binzer, a cocaine addict who freebases crack in a home video featured in "Celebrity Rehab." "I took it to that level where it became a really scary thing to me."

Smoking joint after joint, snorting cocaine, vomiting into a toilet, "Celebrity Rehab" shows its stars at rock bottom. Though Pinksy may be best known for sex advice doled out on the radio and TV call-in show "Loveline," he's no Dr. Phil -- he has the medical chops to administer real treatment.

An addiction and recovery specialist, Pinsky's the medical director of the department of chemical dependency services at Southern California's Las Encinas Hospital. He considers "Celebrity Rehab" a documentary about him treating a group of patients -- not a typical reality show. But as is often the case in Hollywood, cameras and a weekly paycheck for the patients helped the process.

"Cameras sort of hold people accountable -- they motivate them to keep them going," Pinsky said. "I was able to do more intensive work because these people were getting paid by the week. They wanted to get paid and they wanted to be on TV."

"Celebrity Rehab" wrapped production in August, which means its stars have been out of Pinsky's watch almost six months. For some, sobriety has stuck.

"I've been sober now for six months. And I stopped smoking Sept. 4," said Nielsen, who checked in for alcohol addiction. "This is forever. This is a change of life completely. It's not easy but it's the only way to become normal again."

For others, sobriety hasn't been so easy. Last month, Sierra was arrested for disorderly intoxication and resisting officers. In lieu of prison, a judge sentenced her to three years probation and another stint in rehab under Pinsky's supervision -- this time for one year, no cameras rolling.

"People look at her and say, 'See, treatment doesn't work.' That's not true. Jessica did not have the kind of funds for the kind of treatment she needed," Pinsky said. "She is not a resistive patient. She actively engages in treatment. She just needs a lot more."

Would Pinsky be willing to take the Winehouses and Dohertys of the world under his wing for another season of "Celebrity Rehab?" Only if the "public exposure doesn't have a net adverse affect" on the stars he just treated, who know that the pressure's on to keep the gossip about them good.

"I think it'll stick if I do the work it takes to stick," said Binzer, who's in talks to do a separate reality series about trying to stay sober. "If I wanted to keep doing drugs, I shouldn't have done this show. People are going to be looking for the least bit of intoxication in my eyes."
