In case you were wondering, yes, socialite Casey Johnson is still an idiot. If you don’t believe me, check out this interview in which she describes the horror of not being allowed to adopt a Cambodian baby after she had “bonded for three weeks with this child. I was buying her clothes in Cambodia. I was videoing her. I was doing everything.”
Luckily, Casey found another cute baby to dress up, so it’s ok.

You may be shocked to learn this, but… Mel Gibson has a problem controlling his temper. And he uses crude language when he’s upset. You’re shocked, aren’t you?
Anyhoo, Mel had a meltdown last night while speaking to a film class at Cal State University at Northridge. A few members of the Mayan community showed up to question Gibson about the use of Mayan stereotypes in his film “Apocalypto.” When a Mayan expert pressed him about the issue, the actor totally flipped his shit.
After Gibson’s presentation, the crowd was allowed to ask questions. Alicia Estrada, an Assistant Professor of Central American Studies at CSUN, challenged Gibson, asking him if he had read about the Mayan culture before shooting the controversial film. Gibson said he had.
Estrada persisted, stating that representations in the movie that the Mayans engaged in sacrificial ceremonies and had bloodthirsty tendencies were both wrong and racist. Estrada and others tell TMZ that Gibson exploded in anger, responding, “Lady, F**k off.”
We’re told Gibson also became extremely angry when members of the Mayan community protested on how they were portrayed in the film. The emotional Mayan members were escorted out of the room, and we’re told Gibson screamed a parting shot — “Make your own movie!”
“Fuck off” and “make your own movie” are such adult comments to make. Good job. Mel’s rep blamed the incident on Estrada, calling her a “heckler.”
Gibson’s publicist, Alan Nierob, told TMZ, “This person was a heckler who was rude and disrupted the event, so much so that the event organizers had to escort her out.”

Ok, I have no clue if this shit is true or not, but the word on the street is that the medical examiner in the Anna Nicole Smith case will announce on Monday that Anna’s death was a combination of two factors: a blood infection (possibly caused by a dirty needle) and an overdose of sleeping medication. Supposedly, Anna overdosed before she could die from the very serious blood infection, which would have killed anyway. Basically, homegirl was just straight up fucked. This information comes from both Star and the National Enquirer, so who knows how accurate it is.
The EnquirerR learned that just before she left the Bahamas for Florida on February 5, three days before she died, Anna Nicole received an injection in her left buttock.
Tests did not reveal what that substance was.
“As she boarded the plane for Miami, Anna Nicole developed a painful abscess at the site of the injection,” said a source with knowledge of the case. “The needle wasn’t sterile. The pain kept getting worse as the abscess got larger and larger very quickly.”
From Miami, Anna Nicole and her live-in lawyer Howard K. Stern traveled to Hollywood, Fla. The pain from the abscess became excruciating and Anna Nicole developed a high fever.
By the time she got to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino her fever was 105.
Anna Nicole, unaware that her blood was being poisoned by infection, had also developed a second infection from a virulent form of norovirus, which causes intestinal problems.
It was at this point that Anna Nicole — and her entourage — made a fatal mistake. She refused to go to a hospital, a decision that would have saved her life.
Instead, Anna’s people gave her an ice bath to control the fever, administered the antibiotic ciprofloxacin by mouth and gave her an over-the-counter flu medicine.
As the needle-caused infection took over her body, she began vomiting, had severe diarrhea and could not urinate.
On February 6, a Tuesday, Anna spent the whole day in bed. She could not keep fluids down. She was becoming severely dehydrated.
On Wednesday, February 7, Anna seemed somewhat better, but she wasn’t, the source said.
“She was still vomiting and suffering diarrhea,” said the source. “Again, she spent the whole day in bed, as the abscess continued to grow. She was in such pain, she just wanted to sleep.”
And that’s when the final fatal mistake was made. Sometime overnight on February 7, Anna ingested the sleeping medication chloral hydrate. The drug is extremely potent. The dose was too much — and in fact it was a toxic level, the ENQUIRER and Star have learned exclusively. On Thursday, February 8, Anna never woke up.
A nurse found her unresponsive at about 1:30 p.m.
At 2:49 p.m., Anna Nicole Smith was pronounced dead.
Preliminary analysis indicated the cause of death was systemic sepsis syndrome, a lethal blood infection. It was caused by the abscess of the left buttock. Further investigation revealed the fatal level of chloral hydrate.
Chloral hydrate can cause depression of respiration, especially in a person who is already sick because of an infection and dehydration and it can cause death within a relatively short period of time.
Anna reportedly had scars all over her ass needle injections, so this probably wasn’t the first time she injected her medication. More info on Monday.

Despite multiple arrests and rehab tries, Pete Doherty recently admitted his love affair with crack cocaine continues to go strong.
In an interview with the New York Daily News newspaper, Pete said: “I always stumble back on it sooner or later, even if it’s for half an hour a day.”
The wild rocker even reportedly pulled out a crack pipe and lit up during the interview.
Pete, 28, had impressed a judge during a recent court appearance, who said the star was making huge improvements.
Normally, I would scold Petey for engaging in such a disgusting addiction, but I’m starting to wonder if perhaps the singer uses drugs to help rid himself of the memory of sucking old dude dick for drug money. Pete is an admitted former prostitute.
“There was no shame, because I kind of knew they were just lonely pissed-up old queens. And 20 quid was a lot of money!”
Oh. Well, maybe he isn’t that upset about his past. Nevermind.

Nicky Hilton seemed to be flaunting some unprofessional ways this week. Homegirl threw a little fit over rival Lydia Hearst walking the runway at her fashion show, and later canceled her own Miami Fashion Week show, sending out a letter in which she claimed she had a “personal emergency.” “Personal emergency” like a sale at Barneys or something?
The letter, which went out yesterday, stated that Nicky “loves Miami” but was pulling the plug on her Nicholai show, which was set for tomorrow. Her cancellation comes days after witnesses told Page Six that Hilton and Hearst had a run-in in L.A. during an Alvin Valley fashion show. Spies at the event said Hilton was “fuming” when a fiery Hearst was pulled from the front row onto the runway to replace a model who had dropped out at the last minute. We’re told that Hearst was quickly prepped backstage by a Nioxin beauty team and dressed by the designer - but that when she walked the runway, she was greeted by Hilton, “glaring at her from the front row.” One observer noted, “When Lydia came out, everyone clapped but Nicky.” Elliot Mintz, a rep for Hilton, said, “There was no glaring whatsoever and Nicky has no issues with Lydia. The Miami cancellation was due to a scheduling conflict.”
One would assume that your own fashion show would win out in a “scheduling confict,” right?

Lindsay Lohan exited a Beverly Hills salon on Wednesday looking like some sort of barf-tastic Farrah Fawcett redux. Normally, I love Lindsay’s hair, but this shit is kind of scaring me.
