Lindsay Lohan Leaks Online

10 December 2011 4:14 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Playboy Magazine publisher Hugh M. Hefner, is releasing his 'Lindsay Lohan' pictorial issue one week early.

This is after photos of the shoot were leaked online, featuring the "Mean Girls" star.

Monroe appeared as Playboy Magazine's first 'centerfold' in 1953.

'Of Unknown Origin' Review

12 November 2011 3:20 PM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

by Jesse Miller, MoreHorror.com

When his wife and son leave for a vacation, mild-mannered businessman Bart (Peter Weller) stays behind to get some work done on his latest project.

However, that all changes when he becomes obsessed with capturing a mischievous rodent that begins to cause destruction to his beautiful home, one expensive object at a time.

Bart becomes fixated with capturing the rat so much that he is absentminded during his work hours and hard at work at setting up traps during the evening. At one point, he even interrupts a perfectly pleasant dinner amongst colleagues with random statistics and facts about rats. Yes, these facts are all startling (if true) but even still, his descent into what appears to be madness is a little out of the blue.

Of Unknown Origin is billed as a “suspense-horror” but it feels more like an oddball dark comedy with very slight undertones of horror. »

Gene Simmons Labeled a Sex Addict in Kiss Rocker Ace Frehley's Tell-All Book, No Regrets,

1 November 2011 7:14 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Kiss frontman Gene Simmons was a 'sex addict' who would 'f*ck almost anything', his bandmate claims in a new tell-all book about the rockers. Guitarist Ace Frehley says Simmons couldn't stop sleeping with groupies. He wrote in his memoir, No Regrets: "[Gene] would f*ck almost anything. "Short, tall; plump, svelte; attractive, merely tolerable. "I believe Gene is a sex addict, in much the same way I am an alcoholic. "If you've been with only one or two women (and had to beg for whatever you got off them), it must be intoxicating to suddenly have groupies falling all over you. "You go from getting laid once or twice a year to getting laid a hundred times by a hundred different women. "We all have our issues and vices, and I saw Gene's behavior affect him and the band sometimes in a negative way." Simmons, 62, recently wed long-term fiancee, former Playboy Playmate Shannon Tweed, »

Kiss rocker Gene Simmons, who claims to have slept with 4,800 women and for decades was adamant he would never marry, has revealed why he changed his mind about heading up the aisle. Gene married girlfriend Shannon Tweed after 28 years together on Saturday at the Beverly Hills Hotel. And Simmons - who has two children, Nick, 22, and Sophie, 19, with Tweed, has explained why he decided to get married after such a long time with his partner. He told British newspaper The Sun: "At 62 it really is time to think about that. Shannon and I have been together 28 years, and she's put up with a lot of c***. I've always been anti-marriage for me until they become mature. As species we don't mature until we're in our 60s. "The biggest financial pitfall in life is divorce. And the biggest reason for divorce is marriage!" © Splash News   »

Gene pops the question on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' but the answer isn't so easy

5 October 2011 3:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Before the premiere of "Gene Simmons Family Jewels" (Tues. 9 p.m. on A&E), I was concerned that last season's emotional rollercoaster would amble to a dull, TV-friendly finish. We already know Simmons and longtime girlfriend Shannon Tweed tied the knot on October 1, so it seemed pretty safe to assume that all of the problems that had plagued Tweed (Simmons' serial infidelity, his inability to communicate, his workaholism) have been neatly shoved under the rug, never to be addressed again. But to Tweed's credit, Simmons didn't get off so easily on the show's season debut. He may have gotten a yes »
