Report: Kendra Tried to Sell Multiple Sex Tapes

While Kendra Wilkinson is reportedly desperately trying to block the distribution of a sex tape, new reports suggest that there are multiple sex tapes and that the reality television star tried to sell them herself. According to RadarOnline, Kendra “secretly planned to shop her own sex tape.” The celebrity blog has uncovered legal documents showing that Kendra was willing to sell multiple “tapes.” She also apparently had a company set up specifically for the sale of the sex tape, which was to be called Home Run Productions LLC. The papers are dated 2008, while Kendra was appearing in her last season of The Girl Next Door and after she’d started dating future husband Hank Baskett. The plot thickens. [RadarOnline]

Gabourey Sidibe is a Meanie Pants

A host of reporters and fans have come forward and revealed that Precious actress Gabourey Sidibe is mean. Jonathan Capehart writes in The Washington Post that he approached the Oscar-nominated actress at the White House Correspondents Dinner and was treated poorly and ended up being shouted at by the portly actress. Another journalist, Jo-Ann Armao, had a similar encounter and is quoted as saying, “Oh! She's horrible.” It’s not only reporters who have been of the receiving end of Sidibe’s foul mood. She’s even rude to her fans. According to Mediabistro, “When asked for a picture, the less-than-enthused newbie star could barely crack a smile. One photo-seeking fan asked jokingly, "That's all you're going to give me?" to the pouty Precious. Gabby responded, "You'll get what I give you.” I think someone is letting fame go to their head.

"Can't Stop, Won't Stop" is a new song from Lindsay Lohan and it's been leaked to the Internets. Lohan apparently started working on her third album in 2007 after signing with Universal Motown, but revealed in November 2008 that work on the album had stalled. The leak of "Can't Stop, Won't Stop" suggests that the notorious party animal could be returning her focus to a music career. Either way, it blows. [Perez Hilton]

Tom Cruise Confirms Mission Impossible 4 Director

Tom Cruise has revealed the director for Mission: Impossible IV. The film will be helmed by Incredibles director Brad Bird and scripted by Edgar Wright. "I dig Edgar. Very nice guy, very smart, very talented. I'd really like to do something with him,” said Cruise. "I met Edgar on the set of Mission: Impossible III - Simon Pegg and those guys are hilarious. I love Shaun of the Dead. It's amazing. But we're working on Brad right now. I don't know if I'm allowed to talk about it but everything's signed. Brad is doing it." The film is set to be released in May 2011. [Inside Movies]

WNBA Owner No Longer Proud of Possibly Ironic "Best Attendance" Banner

After purchasing the Washington Wizards and getting the WNBA's Washington Mystics thrown in as an added bonus (sort of like free breadsticks at Domino's), Ted Leonis recently announced that he will only allow championship banners in the arena. Oddly, the Mystics "attendance" banner will not make the cut and will inevitably be taken down. This could possibly infuriate the dozens of fans who made this possible. [Ted's Take]

Spencer Pratt Giddy About His Mother-in-Law's Looming Foreclosure

As Heidi Montag's mother prepares to lose her home due to an unpaid loan, various family members have come to her defense. It just so happens that her son-in-law, Spencer Pratt, is not one of them. "If that's true ... that is the best news I’ve heard all day long. Anybody who would do what she did to her daughter – my amazing, beautiful, magnificent wife Heidi – on national television ...  should be put in a straightjacket." The interview was then stopped when a fight between a pot and kettle broke out nearby. [TMZ]
