The Hollywood 5 & 1: 11.03.12: Reboot Edition!
Miss me? Did you even notice I was gone? OK, to be fair, a large number of you are probably thinking, “Who the hell are you?”
My name is Steve Gustafson and I introduced the 5 & 1 concept, for better or worse, to 411mania.com on April 19, 2008. Over the years it has gone under a number of changes but the purpose has pretty much stayed the same. Provide YOU access to the hottest women and biggest headlines in pop culture.
I had to step away to take care of some personal matters and I have to thank Jack McGee for filling in and doing an outstanding job keeping you entertained. Jack knows his stuff and I hear he’s pretty good with the ladies.
I’m back now and I’ve brought some new ideas with me. Don’t worry. We’re keeping the hot women. We’re keeping the crazy Hollywood news. We’re keeping the random adult industry tidbits. I’ll be adding new features, more interviews, and interactive options so you’ll have everything you need to be the life of whatever party you go to.
Consider this weeks 5 & 1 a little refresher. Next week begins a new era!
And if you need a reminder of how influential this column can be, Playboy magazine gave me a little shine in naming Miss February, Leola Bell, The Peoples Playmate. If you’re not following her on Twitter @LeolaBell, you’re a fool!
VS is easily the most popular feature we’ve had. A simple concept: pit two hotties against one another and you all vote on who you feel is the hottest. We’ve even have gone so far as to hold tournaments and form a virtual “Hall of Bang”. Don’t worry. I’m not so crazy as to get rid of it all. We’ll have a little fun this week but next week start to expand on it a little and see where we can go with it.
Without delay, let’s have some girls go at it!
I was over at Complex.com and they named Brittany Dailey as their hottest video vixen. I also saw that they picked Tori Black as their hottest adult film star. Let’s keep it simple and match these two up and see what happens!
PIC OF THE WEEK!
How was your Halloween? It’s long become an accepted joke that October 31st is the day where it’s acceptable for adults to dress as skimpy as possible. Of course some people don’t need an excuse but did you happen to catch Kim Kardashian in her Catwoman outfit? Holy Latex…Mercy!
You might have read that TMZ reported that Vivid Entertainment has said that there is no second Kim sex tape.
Vivid has the copyright to the original tape and boss Steve Hirsch said that the company investigated the rumors of a second tape and found they were false. He said: “We’ve already spoken to the third party that brought the first tape to us and, a second tape, or additional footage from the first tape isn’t being shopped around or even exists.” He added that if anyone is trying to resell footage that belongs to Vivid, he will “use all legal means possible to protect our ownership.”
WHAT THE HELL?
What can you say about Chris Brown that hasn’t already been said? Brown is no stranger to controversy, and over the years, it’s become obvious that the artist has no interest in hiding his douchebag nature.
Halloween was no exception. The singer proved another example of his ignorance as he donned a turban and posed with a fake rifle, dressing as his interpretation of an Arab terrorist for Halloween.
To add insult to injury, Brown, who is always vocal and active on social networks, tweeted a picture linked to his Instagram of him and his crew dressed in character.
No one eve said you had to have good taste to be popular.

More Star Wars!
Who saw this one coming? The seventh, eighth, and ninth chapters of the Star Wars saga will be a reality starting in 2015. George Lucas has decided to sell his baby to Disney and the interweb has blown a gasket in “what if” scenarios and gossip.
I would like to open the floor (I.E. Comment board below) and ask YOU what YOU would want to see in the next 3 chapters. Where would you take the saga? Bring back Luke, Leia, and Han? Branch off in a new direction? Adapt one of the popular novels? Give Jar Jar the spotlight?
I’m curious to see what your thoughts are. I’ll be sharing the best ones in The Big Screen Bulletin THIS MONDAY!
Always something! Kris Jenner told TMZ that the “scumbag” who called in bogus tips to L.A. child welfare officials had claimed Kendall was about to commit suicide by jumping off the Hollywood sign.
Kris took the time to call in to TMZ Live from Australia (where Kendall is alive and doing a photo shoot) and tell them she’s on a mission to hunt down and punish the person who lied about her family to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services.
It was reported that officials visited Kris’ Calabasas home last month after receiving multiple “tips” from an anonymous caller that the kids were in danger.
Kris said besides the Lie about Kendall, the caller had also told officials Kris had beaten Kylie with a belt on a specific date.
But investigators quickly realized it was all bogus because when they arrived to the home, Kendall was hangin’ out at the house. Kris says Kylie wasn’t even in the country on the day of the supposed belt attack.
Kris has gone on record that she’s hired people to unmask the bogus tipster and she believes it is a tabloid reporter. She said, “We are investigating and have a pretty good idea who it might be.”
Who could it be?
Look at this! Kind of a shocker. Charlie Sheen, contrary to the buzz that’s going around Hollywood, is not hospitalized for drug issues! Even better, he’s back on the set of Anger Management after battling a nasty ear infection.
But the little devil isn’t wearing a set of angel wings. Sources say he’s definitely doing some partying. Even with lifestyle, he flew his kids, Sam and Lola, to NYC Saturday to spend some time with Denise Richards, then flew back the next day. That was just enough to trigger an ear infection, which benched Charlie from the set Tuesday.
Take a note and learn from Charlie. Keep those ears clean!
Straight from Variety: Jamie Foxx is negotiating to star as the villain in the upcoming sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man. The Oscar-winning actor would play Electro, a man who gets his super powers from a lightning strike.
As Variety noted, Sony, the studio behind The Amazing Spider-Man 2, had no comment on the rumor, but Foxx kind of did. In a tweet posted just after the Variety news dropped, the actor commented that he dressed up as Electro for Halloween.
If you don’t know, Electro first appeared in a 1964 Spider-Man comic. His inclusion in the new Spider-Man universe was alluded to at the end of The Amazing Spider-Man; a post-credits sequence featured a shadowy figure ominously chatting with Dr. Curt Connors (The Lizard) while lightning flashed in the background, causing some fans to speculate that Electro was the next obstacle for Peter Parker.
If Foxx signs on, he would be just the latest talented star to board The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In addition to returning leads Andrew Garfield (as Spider-Man) and Emma Stone (as Gwen Stacy), Shailene Woodley is also up for the role of Mary Jane Watson in the film. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will also include Harry Osborn, but as yet that role has not been cast.
What’s the VIDEO BUZZ?
An election eve appeal from Montgomery Burns. Mr. Burns puts Shamus the dog to the test of choosing between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. I’m not even going to open up the genie bottle and ask who you’re voting for.
I’m not that crazy.
