Once upon a time, there was an elfin beauty called Winona. She dated handsome prince Johnny Depp and became a Hollywood heavyweight with films like Edward Scissorhands and Girl, Interrupted. That came to a screeching halt in December 2001, and Winona suddenly went from giving off a starry glow to having a scuzzy sheen when she was arrested in Beverly Hills for stealing nearly 5,000 worth of clothes and carrying illegal pharmaceuticals drugs. She was convicted of grand theft and vandalism, but acquitted of burglary.
She admitted to smoking heroin while the kids were at school, and even taking cocaine while pregnant. When her daughter Daisy was 15 (now 21), a DNA test revealed her godfather Gavin Rossdale was in fact her biological father. Pearl is chums with that other party animal, Ms Moss, and hit headlines in 2005 with ‘Primrose Hill Babylon’ rumours she and hubby Danny Goffey had wife swapping action with Jude Law and Sadie Frost. She said, ‘The story’s correct even though I wish it wasn’t.’ And Pearl went down, ahem, in rock chick history.
Where do we start? The boob jobs (they’re bigger, they’re smaller, ooh they’re bigger again). The outrageous outfits. The falling out of nightclubs and exposing her bits. The habit of spilling all the beans, all the time. Getting pregnant by a wrong ‘un footballer. Having the public hate her, then love her, then hate her again (but we still can’t get enough of her). Admitting to having an abortion while with Dane Bowers. Her ‘my mouth works faster than my brain’ catty comments (on Posh: ‘She has money, a gorgeous husband She doesn’t have the looks, but you can’t have everything’. On Kerry Katona: ‘She’s the next Anna Nicole Smith.’ On Pamela Anderson: ‘I have no idea how she became famous.’ Then there was that feud with Jodie Marsh. Don’t get us started). Letting the nation not only watch her fall in love, get married in a pink pumpkin and have kids, but witness every moment of the disintegration of her marriage. Before she got married again. In Las Vegas. To a cross dressing cage fighter. Then, to top it all, she talked about being ‘on her period’ on This Morning. In front of Phillip Schofield. The shame.
In 2006, Lil was a talented, if cheeky, young star with the world at her feet. So we didn’t blame her for having a few sherries on special occasions. Except then it began to happen a lot. And replica christian louboutin sometimes she’d be falling about drunk and topless. It also soon became clear she was a gobby madam. If she didn’t have it in for Bob Geldof (she only called our favourite saint a ct), she was having a boozy post Brits slanging match with Amy Winehouse (which she later said made her ‘miserable’). Or saying Kylie playing Glastonbury was an insult (tsk). Or calling Cheryl Tweedy a ‘stupid bitch’. Then she made the error of getting into a catfight with the queen, Elton John. HE soon put her in her place, saying he could still ‘snort her under the table’. But the biggest shocker? Her chat show. Shudder. That, and the fact she has a third nipple.
When the alien faced posho began modelling at 16, her super skinny frame had people blaming her for anorexia in young girls. But she took a break, came back enormous (oh alright, still a tiny size 8), and all was forgiven. Then Jodie turned into our favourite glamorous tomboy when she became more famous for riding horses, playing polo, racing cars and being an aristo. However, in September 2007, that clean living reputation was shattered when a newspaper claimed Ms Kidd was a ‘cocaine fixer’ who had happily supplied them with the drug. Jodie refused to comment, but it was rumoured she’d lost 500,000 in modelling contracts.
Mariah can shock us. With her diva behaviour. Her need to walk on petals. Her penchant for showing off her puppies (both kinds). But back in 2001 Mariah, who had been at the top of her singing game with 45m record deals and selling 110 million records in the 1990s, she rocked the world by having not one but two very Mariah esque (dramatic and public) breakdowns. The official line was she was overworked, but in July 2001 internet rumours abounded that Mariah was convinced she was invisible, that Marilyn Monroe was talking to her through her piano and Jennifer Lopez was out to sabotage her career (Hmm.). Also, while filming an appearance on MTV, she handed out popsicles and began to do a striptease. When Mariah was admitted to a psychiatric ward, a spokesperson denied a suicide attempt saying, ‘She did have an emotional and physical breakdown but there was no suicide attempt.’ She added, ‘She did break some dishes and glasses, and she may have stepped on them.’
It’s not often a Hollywood transformation will leave you jaw to the floor, and wondering ‘What the hell happened?’ And in Aug 2009, that’s how we reacted when we saw the once willowy and delicate Mischa packing serious extra poundage. It wouldn’t have been a big deal if it had happened gradually, but it seemed to happen overnight. One moment we were saying, ‘Hmm, does anybody else think she’s a bit too thin?’ to exclaiming, ‘Holy hamburgers! Has she eaten the whole cast of The OC?’ Mischa looked bloated, and rumours were rife she’d been going heavy on booze and food, which she denied. She was admitted to a psychiatric ward, but said she was taken in after surgery on her wisdom teeth went wrong. No, we don’t understand either.
Danniella’s had a pretty shocking history with cocaine: she first tried it at 14, and, by the age of 21, the EastEnders star was spending 400 a day on the drug. She used 5g of cocaine every single day through her pregnancy with her son Kai (now 14) and she once stayed up on her own, curtains drawn and watching telly doing cocaine for 24 hours straight. She even estimates spending 250,000 on the white stuff. But nothing turned the stomach and got us talking like the picture, taken in May 2000, of Danniella poking her tongue out at a photographer, head tilted back and revealing a chunk of her nose was missing. And not just a little nick of flesh, either. It was a gaping hole so big, we could see straight up into her brain. The hole in her nose sent shockwaves through the country and we couldn’t talk about anything else. Plus, we all learnt what a septum was.
In 1996 Sophie was the Gossard girl. Dark, busty, sexy. But in 2006 she appeared on Celebrity Love Island, and was so self obsessed the presenters nicknamed her ‘Me Me’. But let’s face it, a beautiful model loving herself is hardly a news flash. In November 2007, what had us seriously aghast was the news that Sophie who earnt a very comfortable living from her modelling was a prostitute. Oh yes. Busted by a journalist, she offered him cocaine and sex for the bargain sum of 10,000. Pictures emerged of her hoovering up cocaine dressed only in a thong and a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes as she said, ‘I’m great at sex. I’ll be a lot of fun. I’ll look great on your fing arm. I’m a supermodel.’ She then went on to admit she was doing it to pay off her three bedroom house in London’s posh Notting Hill and added, ‘Spanking is cool. But I’m not into any kinky sht Lesbian scene, maybe, but it’ll be more.’ She later lost her 100,000 contract with Fake Bake because of the revelations. But she didn’t learn her lesson. In September 2009 a video emerged of Sophie snorting a white powder, and last December she was arrested for being drunk and disorderly after making a scene at Waterloo station.
Pull up a chair. This may take some time. Now, Naomi is synonymous with temper tantrums, but back in 1998, news the British replica louboutin super had assaulted her assistant with a telephone was a shocker. But Naomi paid Georgina Galanis an undisclosed sum, expressed remorse and packed herself off to anger management classes. Guess what? We don’t think they worked. Because in 2005, Naomi allegedly slapped assistant Amanda Brack and beat her around the head with a BlackBerry. (What is it with Ms Campbell and communication technology? Thank gawd big heavy fax machines aren’t around any more.)
Then Italian actress Yvonne Sci claimed Naomi left her ‘covered in blood’ after an altercation in a Rome hotel. In March 06, Campbell was red bottom pumps arrested for allegedly assaulting her housekeeper with a jewel encrusted mobile phone (guys, some advice, keep her away from phones!). She pleaded guilty to reckless assault and was sentenced to five days community service mopping floors at New York’s Sanitation Department. Are you keeping up?
In April 2008 Nommers was arrested at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 on suspicion of assaulting a police officer after one of her bags had been lost. She was banned from flying with British Airways, pleaded red bottom shoes guilty to four of the six charges against her and sentenced to 200 hours of community service. Oh, but that’s not all. Last month her limo driver filed a report with the NYC Police claiming she had slapped and punched him. He later decided to drop the matter. Naomi strikes such fear into the hearts of those around her that when a Celebs On Sunday spy spotted Naomi smoking inside at a recent fashion charity event, nobody was brave enough to ask her to stub it out. Well, there must have been a fair few phones around, it was probably best.
Kate Moss was our Queen of Cool. We knew she liked a drinkie, we knew she liked to partee, but hey, why wouldn’t she want to go out every night and be the belle of the ball? There had been rumours of Kate taking drugs, but she had once declared, ‘I don’t do any Class As after seeing what it does to people.’ Then in September 2005 came those shocking pictures. Undeniable evidence of Kate doing cocaine casually getting the drug out of her handbag, organising it into lines, and snorting it all up. Proof Ms Moss messed with Class As after all. Never had a supermodel been so banged to rights. She lost a few modelling deals, but ultimately, it didn’t affect her career. If anything, it confirmed the fact Moss was indestructable. Even after the unconfirmed rumours in January 2008 that Kate had taken part in a ‘drug fuelled orgy’ on her 34th birthday, the work kept rolling in. Then in September last year Kate stormed out of the GQ awards, declaring she’d never come back after James Nesbitt made a joke about her druggie past. Pictures of her poledancing against a column on the same night looked like Kate was up to her old tricks
For a woman who’s only been on this planet 21 years, she’s packed in a lot of shocking behaviour. Her tattoos are enough to give any dad a nervous breakdown for starters, but she hasn’t stopped at that. On three occasions, she’s been accused of shoplifting but they were dismissed as misunderstandings. In May 2008, video was leaked of Peaches handing money to a drug dealer and saying, ‘I’m going to need Valium tomorrow, after this’. In July 2008 she was treated by paramedics after an overdose, and was believed to have stopped breathing for several minutes until she was revived. In August 2008, aged 19, she married wannabe drummer Max Drummey in Las Vegas, but the marriage only lasted six months and she later admitted it had been a publicity stunt to promote Max’s band. But all that pales in comparison with what is perhaps most shocking of all. The pictures that emerged last month. Of a naked Peaches, who had had a one night stand with a red bottoms stranger (left). The man who released the pictures (what a gent, by the way) claims the pair met and had sex during a heroin fuelled night in which they scoured LA for syringes. Peaches’ camp denied that, saying she had consumed alcohol which gave her the ‘highs portrayed in the photo’.
Nowadays, sex tapes are 10 a penny. But in 2003, the whole world getting their hands on a video of you doing the beast with two backs was something of a rarity. Which is why it was such a big deal when Paris and then boyf Rick Salomon’s homemade sex tape went public. Salomon released it himself, just before Hilton’s TV series The Simple Life hit TV screens. But the most shocking part of all? How bored Paris looks, as Rick, er, services her in a variety of positions. That, and the poor quality it’s mostly filmed using night vision. Except for the super romantic last scene, which features Rick getting his rocks off after Paris pleasures him orally. We believe that’s what they call the money shot
Before becoming Mrs Macca, Heather was a national heroine. She lost her leg in a motorbike accident and hers was a story of overcoming adversity. Then she married Sir Paul McCartney and it all started to go as wonky as Heather before a leg fitting. First came the stories that were later ridiculed: whether it was about running away with the circus, to dumping a former fianc a few days before their wedding because she discovered he was a gay MI5 agent, there was nothing Heather wouldn’t say.
Then came the naked pictures. Then came the allegations she had been a high class hooker (which she denied). Then, in October 2007, 18 months after she and Macca had split, came Heather’s most shocking moment. Her GMTV sofa meltdown. From the moment she sat on that red sofa wanting to ‘set the record straight’, we could barely watch from behind our fingers. But then, we couldn’t look away either. From comparing herself to Princess Di to claiming she’d had death threats, saying she’d had worse press coverage than a paedophile, to declaring she’d been suicidal. Her voice got squeakier, Fiona Phillips couldn’t get a word in, and she also said she had a ‘box of evidence that’s going to a certain person should anything happen to me, so if you top me off, it’s still going to a certain person and the truth will come out.’ Before dissolving into tears and mouthing to camera, ‘It’s the truth.’ And we were stood round the telly, mouths open.
Now poor Heather is back in the news after facing her former nanny at an employment tribunal, fighting off accusations of being a ‘rude, angry and dishonest woman’. Heather says she treated her like a daughter and that her nanny Sara Trumble had turned against her when she refused to loan her 4,000 for a boob job. And so it rumbles on. Or should that be Trumbles on?
We could write a book on this one She may have been a real rock ‘n’ roller, but it was only after heroin addict hubby Kurt Cobain’s suicide in 1994 that Courtney’s descent picked up momentum. In October 2003, she christian louboutin replica was arrested in LA breaking windows to get into the home of her boyfriend Jim Barber. He didn’t press charges, but police charged her with being under the influence of a controlled substance. Four hours after being released, she took an overdose. Eight days later, her daughter Frances Bean, then 11, was taken by social services to live with Kurt Cobain’s mum. After a rehab program, Love regained custody of Frances in January 2005. But in September, she was sentenced to six months in lock down rehabilitation and house arrest.
Over the years, it became standard to see a drug addled, messed up Courtney. But in August 2007, she proved she still had the ability to shock when she became scarily skinny, especially after being such a curvy 13st 5lb for so long. She claimed she ‘had to take care of my eating disorder’ but she looked scrawny and ill until in July 2009 she said, ‘I know I’ve got too skinny I need to sort it out. I am going to put on 15lb in one month I’m 8st 4lb and I’m 5ft 10, so that’s not good’ Another thing that isn’t so good is the fact daughter Frances has now disowned her mother. Or the plastic surgery Courtney’s had over the past few years. First it looked like she’d had a nose job, then her jaw looked smaller, then those lips that looked like an overinflated lilo. Skinny waxwork Courtney, you frighten us.
The wholesome pop star married ex New Edition singer Bobbi red bottom boots Brown in 1992, and red bottom heels all was quiet. Then suddenly, in August 2001, she appeared at a 30th anniversary celebration for Jacko looking so thin, her arms looked like they’d snap. The images shocked the world and sparked drug rumours that never went away, so the following year, she appeared on a US TV show to set the record straight. Instead, she came across as confused and said, ‘Crack is cheap. I make too much money to smoke crack. Crack is whack.’ That line became infamous and she admitted to using other substances.
After that, there was no shortage of ‘Houston, louboutin replica we have a problem’ moments. In April 2006, a US mag printed pictures of Whit’s bathroom the surfaces were covered with drug paraphernalia including rolling papers, pipes and powder covered spoons. If that wasn’t horrific enough, Whitney’s sister in law claimed Whit was a crack addict who often believed the devil was attacking her. She added Whitney had taken part in drug fuelled lesbian romps (aren’t they always?). And earlier this year, Whitney behaved strangely during her tour, turning her back on the audience to compose herself before the chorus of I Will Always Love You. Now she’s dating Ray J, a man 18 years her junior, who made a sex tape with Kim Kardashian. Oh Whitters.
Another Top 20 er who’s packed in a whole heap of trouble in a short life. The loss of control is that bit more upsetting when you’ve seen the celeb as an innocent child star and that’s why LiLo’s transformation from freckly sweetheart to loose canon is shocking. And LiLo is so extreme, Hollywood insiders are whispering she may go the way of Brittany Murphy (who died of a prescription drug overdose).
It started in 2005, when she was taken to hospital for kidney problems brought on by stress. In 2006 she needed medical help for being ‘overheated and dehydrated’. In January 2007, she took an Ambien (a prescription sleeping pill) got in a bath, woke up to find it overflowing and checked herself into the Wonderland Center Clinic in LA. She said, ‘When I woke up, I was so scared, I called my therapist and said, “Can I go somewhere for a month?” I was terrified.’ In May 2007 she was arrested for drink driving after hitting a tree and police found cocaine in her purse. LiLo entered rehab for the second time, this time for six weeks. Once released, she had to wear an alcohol monitoring bracelet on her ankle. But two weeks later was arrested again for drink driving and police found cocaine in her pocket. Off she skipped to rehab again.
But if it wasn’t the drugs blowing our minds, it was the fact the once athletic looking LiLo was disappearing. Pictures of her looking like a ginger stick had us doing a double take and in Jan 2006, she admitted her low body weight was due to bulimia. ‘I was sick,’ she admitted. ‘Everyone was scared. I had people sit me down and say, “You’re going to die if you don’t take care of yourself”.’
Then, last year, came the most shocking revelation of all, LiLo’s partying had come lose to killing her. Close enough for a priest to give her the last rites. In a call to her father, Michael Lohan, Lindsay said: ‘I stopped breathing for 10 seconds. They read me my last rites.’ We get the feeling she’ll give us a few more shocking moments before she cleans up her act.
Kerry had a tough upbringing, after being placed in care as a child. So we championed her when she found love with Brian McFadden and became Queen of the Jungle. But when she and Brian separated in September 2004, things began to unravel for poor Kerry. On Valentine’s Day 2007, she married taxi driver Mark Croft. And their marriage was plagued by splits and reconciliations, rumours of infidelity (Kerry was furious after seeing video of Mark groping a lapdancer), drugs, bankruptcy, and constant accusations that Mark was spending Kerry’s money and being controlling. In July 2007 she was admitted to The Priory hospital suffering from bipolar disorder. In February 2008, she appeared on Richard Judy, admitting she had taken cocaine, but said she had not taken any drugs for three years.
However, in October of that year, Kerry went on This Morning, and gave us her most shocking moment ever. It was obvious the girl was crumbling her speech was slurred, her aArticles Connexes：
