Last night, designers and celeb dog owners got together in NYC for the 2008 Paws for Style event, benefiting the NY Humane Society. â€œThe Hillsâ€ star-turned-designer Lauren Conrad was scheduled to walk the runway, but backed out at the last minute, refusing to go onstage!
LC arrived WITHOUT a dog, but apparently borrowed one so she wouldn’t look like a dumbass walking the press line before the show. She gave interviews, and natch posed on the red carpet, then completely SPAZZED.
Some in attendance spotted her crying backstage. Maybe Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt were on the front row sticking their tongues out. OR, maybe it has something to do with retailer Kitson dropping her clothing line! Doesn’t matter. The MC of the show, obviously NOT a fan of Lauren’s, told the audience…
â€œThose reality stars can be such temperamental bitches.â€
No joke. LC was reportedly paid $20,000 to show up and walk the runway at the event. All of it was paid for by the Humane Society. Classy! It’s one thing to get paid by a club to show up and hang out, and it’s another thing to rip off a charity.
Wendy Diamond, the editor in chief of Animal Fair said:
100 percent of the proceeds from Paws For Style go to the Humane Society of New York, we do not take a penny. If anyone would like to help make up for this costly mishap, please call the Humane Society of New York at (212) 752-4842 or visit their website: http://www.humanesocietyny.org/.
It sucks to have to pick up LC’s tab! As an animal lover, however, Snarkista’s gonna toss a few bucks their way. Here’s hoping Miss Conrad will return the 20K she OBVIOUSLY owes the society. Maybe they can cancel the check.

Pete Wentz must be one TIRED dude these days. He has his Fall Out Boys duties, pregnant wifey Ashlee Simpson, and now a gig with MTV. No, it’s not a reality show, thank the LORD. On Fridays this summer, Pete’s hosting “FNMTV,” (Friday Night MTV) a show that aims to take MTV back to its music video roots.
Newsweek’s Oscar Raymundo did a little Q&A with Pete, and Pete’s pretty funny! When asked how he got MTV to do a show with actual music videos, he said that “Most people pitch reality shows to them, like, ‘Check this out. My friend is going to live in a bucket for a week.’ It’s kind of a novel concept to have music videos.” Ha! Tragic but true!
Which artists may get played on his show? “We like to have at least one that you might not expect, like the Ting Tings or No Age.” Oscar digs deeper: “So not, like, the Pussycat Dolls.” Pete allows that “Obviously, you have to deal with the network. MTV has given me full access to their video vaults. I’m allowed to play a couple of videos that I just want to play.” Wow. That’s REALLY nice of MTV. Pete says if he played one of Ashlee’s videos, he’d probably play La La, although he thinks that Invincible had the best direction.
Pete says that the reason he owns bars in New York and Chicago is that most of his friends aren’t famous people, and it’s hard for him to talk his way into getting them into the clubs. So, he said it was more fun to make his own club! On not going out much:
I could, but don’t really like to anymore. A lot of times it feels like you’re the nocturnal animal in the zoo, and it’s 12 noon and there’s a group of schoolkids staring at you, asking why you aren’t dancing and eating bananas.
Pete says the thing he misses most about being single are the ants in his house (!), because he ate Pop-Tarts in bed. Ashlee’s wisely put a stop to that. Oscar didn’t avoid the elephant in the room, and asked Pete if he missed making out with guys. Pete says:
This is what is going to be put on my tombstone, ’cause I said it, like, one time. But no, I will not miss it.
Here’s hoping Pete CAN save music videos, and prove to MTV that there ARE people out here who actually like them instead of shows about people living in a bucket.

Last night’s Canadian Idol proved one thing for sure. American Idol may have had some crappy theme nights this past season… Andrew Lloyd Webber anyone? But at least they didn’t touch David Bowie. Sadly, Canadian Idol did. The Thin White Duke is probably sharpening his fangs right now. Here’s a great example of why.
Tim Gunn has a message for Project Runway’s fans about the showâ€™s new season: You may feel like screaming at the TV! The show’s fifth season premiers Wednesday on Bravo (9 p.m. ET). Tim tells People magazine:
Itâ€™s a real roller coaster, Fans are going to get mad â€” early! There are some big surprises: Favorites wonâ€™t be there anymore, and I can only imagine how the blogs are going to explode over some of the challenge winners. We say that each season has a different DNA and boy, is that true.
Tim gave a sneak-peek at each contestant:
*Blayne, 23:”The designers love him. His work is like his personality â€” exuberant. Blayne is hard to miss.â€
*Daniel, 25: â€œHeâ€™s intense â€” not the workroom jokester â€¦ I called him â€˜the sweater.â€™ As in perspiration.â€
*Korto, 33 â€œStill waters run deep: She seems so quiet and reserved, almost reclusive. Sheâ€™s not. Korto is going to tantalize people with her work.â€
*Emily, 27: â€œEmily is effervescent, very likable and a positive presence in the workroom. Sheâ€™s a sweetheart but sheâ€™s serious about what she does.â€
*Jennifer, 27: â€œSheâ€™s very thoughtful, smart and she is driven by literature and classic films rather than the pop culture scene.â€

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have been dating since January of last year, and Justin’s reportedly started searching out potential wedding venues…especially some of the worldâ€™s most exclusive and private islands. However, it seems his beloved grandmother, Sadie Bomar, has other ideas.
The Sun reports she has the wedding plans in full swing, and has already chosen the spot! Gramma Sadie says Justin and Jessica should get married, at the earliest opportunity, in his mom Lynnâ€™s backyard! Gramma apparently doesn’t care for the “private island” wedding idea. She says:
I just want them to be happy. Justin should get married in Lynnâ€™s back yard in Tennessee. She has a big yard with beautiful flowers. I think it would be perfect.
Gramma Sadie also likes Jessica, and says she’s very sweet, is his age, and isn’t possessive. (Take THAT Cameron Diaz! Ouch!) Yep, Sadie wasn’t a big Cameron fan. She did NOT like the cougar-aspect of their relationship due to their 8 year age gap.
A source close to the Timberlake family says that Justin started talking about marriage earlier this year. His family is delighted and started planning his big day. They’re not sure how much he knows about it, though! Justin and Jessica have TRIED to keep their romance private, but were very much together for a rare public outing at a club opening this weekend.
Justin may have to cave in to his beloved Granny and mom, ‘cuz it sounds like the two of them have his wedding plans all wrapped up. We’ll just have to wait and see what Jessica thinks!
Former Christian singer-turned-provocateur Katy Perry, whose song “I Kissed a Girl” has burned up the charts this summer, says Miley Cyrus would be her dream girl-kiss. Katy tells Steppin’ Out magazine when asked the question in it’s latest issue:
“Miley Cyrus! She’s the lucky girl. It’s cool to hear through the grapevine that Miley Cyrus has my song as her ring tone.
Perry, 23, will be stalking lucky Miley at August’s Teen Choice Awards, which Cyrus, 15, is hosting. Katy continues…
Maybe we’ll have another Britney-Madonna moment on stage. How hilarious would that be? Although I don’t think it would help her career. However, it would definitely help mine!
No, Katy, it definitely wouldn’t help Miley’s career- at least not with the parents of her current tween fanbase! But you’re right, it would probably boost yours a bit. Snarkista doesn’t think it would launch you into the Madonna and Britney Spears stratosphere, but you’d definitely get some more press.
Katy also cleared up any confusion deluded folks may have about what some think is a chastity ring she wears. It’s from beau Travis McCoy, singer with the band Gym Class Heros (and recently arrested for assault).
I’m definitely not a virgin! People think the promise ring means no sex! No, the promise ring is just a promise that he’ll get me another ring. A better ring! Seriously, it’s not one of those ‘no sex’ promise rings,” she added. That kind of went out the window when I was 17 years old.
Yep, right about the time her Christian music career went out the window! Katy’s on a full-court famewhore press right now, and she’s gonna ride that train as long as she can. Billy Ray Cyrus may not be thrilled about Katy’s quest for Miley, as Miley’s probably had ENOUGH sexy press this week!
Her hacked phone caused MORE provocative pics of Miley to hit the net the other day. Snarkista thinks Miley needs to learn how to use the DELETE button, or better yet- lay off the self pic-taking for awhile! And stay away from the naughty candy!
