GOSSIP 2 GO 11/21JUST DIVORCE ALREADY!!...THE HONEYMOON IS OVER
VIA PAGE SIX
THE already shaky marriage between Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey is about to hit another big speedbump.
Jessica Jaymes, a porn star who performed raunchy sex acts with another woman in front of Lachey and pals at a bachelor party last year, is trying to sell a story to the tabs about what she claims really happened that night --and it isn't pretty.
Last year, Star magazine reported in a story where no one was on the record that Lachey and his crew met up with Jaymes and two female friends ["an Asian and a blonde"] at an L.A. club. The crew later went back to a Hollywood Hills home where the women gave a sexual performance, which included "whipped cream and sex toys." Also with the group was a male friend of Jaymes.
At one point, Lachey got on the bed with the girls and seemed "in a trance." Eventually, Jaymes' male pal became "so concerned" about something that Star doesn't specify, he "intervened," pulling Jaymes away from the bed ...to Lachey's "dismay."
Now, we hear, Jaymes and her business manager Gordon Yugovich are asking $1 million plus syndication rights to the "entire story" with steamy details that are sure to make Simpson's hair stand on end. This time, not only will Jaymes be on the record, but her two girlfriends as well as the man who pulled her from the bed are supposedly going to talk — all confirming Jaymes' story.
Both Jaymes and Yugovich refused to "confirm or deny" details to PAGE SIX, although both noted something was being shopped around.
We also hear Jaymes is going to shop a book about the incident. But so far, there have been no takers. The deal has gone out to Life & Style and In Touch, as well as Us Weekly, National Enquirer and Star.Maybe no one is buying because Jaymes has already gone on the record with Howard Stern saying "nothing happened," according to Lachey's attorney, Martin Singer. And she told PAGE SIX last year, "Everything's been exaggerated."
THREE STRIKES YOU'RE OUT...YOU CAN'T BEAT PAULA...NOT EVEN ARSENIO COULD
FAILED "American Idol" contestant Corey Clark who baselessly claimed he slept with Idol judge Paula Abdul,just can't admit defeat. An anonymous man called the National Enquirer recently and said he had photos of Clark and Abdul in a passionate clinch during a romantic weeked at the Ojai Valley Inn and that Clark would be more than happy to talk on the record about it. But when the Enquirer looked at the pictures, they were "clearly not Paula," says a source. "What a loser." Earlier this year, Fox conducted a thorough investigation of Clark's claims and found them false.
NELLY SAYS WATCH ASSES CLAP FOR THE KIDS
HERE'S a novel charity idea in time for the holidays, courtesy of rapper Nelly: Match the money you spend at the strip club with an equal amount in toys for underprivileged tykes. The soft-core hip hopper told the crowd at the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network Awards benefit at Chelsea Piers how he and fellow hip hopper Jermaine Dupree left a strip club feeling guilty after spending more than $10,000 in a single night. So they thought: "How 'bout we go to the toy store and break the kids off, [it's] almost Christmas time." The next day the two matched the amount they'd spent at the flesh palace in toys, and delivered the gifts to needy tots.
THE SAGA CONTINUES
24 hours after "Diddy" called into New York's Hot 97 radio show to face off with disgruntled former employees The Lox, the Bad Boy mogul and his entourage showed up to the studio along with contracts and cancelled checks to help counter claims that he is keeping them from their money.
"I'm not here like 'Big Red,' pulling the wool over their eyes; I ain't gotta take nothing from nobody," Diddy told Hot 97's Angie Martinez, citing the villain from the film "The Five Heartbeats." "I have no problem with The Lox. I'm a fan of theirs. They can still come to my office and I'll erase yesterday."
On Wednesday, Lox members Jadakiss and Styles P appeared on Martinez's show with a plea for Diddy to release their publishing.
Diddy, on Thursday, suggested that the rappers are ignorant of their own paperwork.
He said: "New York was bamboozled, led a stray, run amok yesterday and lied to that I own 50% of their publishing. I don't own 50% of their publishing and that's what the embarrassing part is. Puff gets 20% of their publishing, so they get 80% of their publishing.
"These accusations attacking me as a man are totally not true. It's embarrassing that some artists that have been in the game for 10 years...they don't even know the 101 of the industry. They apparently haven't read their contracts, and they don't even know what's going on in their own lives."
During Wednesday's interview with the Lox, former Junior M.A.F.I.A. member Lil' Cease called in to say that Diddy was also hanging on to a huge portion of the Notorious B.I.G.'s publishing as well.
On Thursday, Diddy brought in Biggie's mother Voletta Wallace to refute those claims. Wallace stated that she is "very happy" with the arrangement she has with Bad Boy for the publishing rights to her late son's catalog.
Furthermore, Wallace said that Lil' Cease was speaking about a situation that was none of his business and should worry about himself.
The Lox attempted to call in and join the conversation, but Diddy wouldn't allow Martinez to patch them through. The Bad Boy founder preferred to hold any further one-on-one conversations with Lox on the phone or face-to-face, like "grown men."

THE DIRTY GIRL GETS MARRIED...DO YA THINK SHE WORE WHITE?
Christina Aguilera married her boyfriend, music executive Jordan Bratman, in northern California's Napa Valley on Saturday. The nuptials took place at sunset under a mountainside tent at the Staglin Family Vineyards in Rutherford, Calif. The singer walked down the aisle in a Christian Lacroix gown; her bridesmaids wore dresses by Stevie Wonder's wife, designer Kai Milla. Bride and groom exchanged wedding bands by London-based jeweler Stephen Webster, who also created Aguilera's five-carat, diamond-and-platinum engagement ring.
The Mail on Sunday reports that Christina Aguilera had each of the 150 guests invited to her wedding with Jordan Bratman sign a three-page confidentiality agreement. "You have to sign your life away," a guest revealed. "It's three pages long. It starts, 'It came as a great shock to us that one of our guests has been trying to sell their invitations. We are sorry to have to ask you, our dear friends and honored guests, to sign this agreement but we feel it is the only way to ensure the security of our wedding.'" Read more

PHARRELL INTERVIEW WITH ROLLING STONE
RollingStone.com spoke with Pharrell Williams in a Q&A and asked The Neptunes star of all the people he's collaborated with, who works the hardest in the studio. "The ones who are really successful work really hard," he said. "Beyonce works hard. I appreciate that. Justin [Timberlake], Usher and Jay-Z work hard. They're not in the studio to fu** around. We all have fun, but when it's time for us to put our Jedi hats on, we put our Jedi hats on and battle it out with the creativity that exists in oblivion. We reach in and snatch it out and carve away until it's right." Read more.
