Rupert gets botoxicated

Botoxymoron: Everett, before — laughlines and snow dusting his hair, left, and Everett last Friday, plugging "Blithe Spirit" on "Martha Stewart."

Ever-opinionated Everett shows off new face on Martha Stewart
Last week, Rupert Everett scored tons of ink when he went off about "Abercrombie and stollers" trends in queer parenting.

"This whole idea of two gay guys filling a cocktail shaker with their sperm and impregnating some grim lesbian and then it gets cut out is just really weird," Everett told Daily Beast interviewer Kevins Sessums.

Then on Friday, the actor was plugging his new Broadway show, "Blithe Spirit," on Martha Stewart and unveiled his almost unrecognizable puss.

He looks pulled just a little too tight — almost waxen.

Funny, in that Daily Beast interview, he mocked his gay brothers for being "egocentric and vain" in their desire to have children.

After getting a look at his new look, it’s pretty obvious that the highly opinionated actor knows all about vanity.

Studying the before-and-after photos of the 49-year-old actor, Dr. Brian S. Glatt, founder of the Premier Plastic Surgery Center of New Jersey, told Star mag, "I think Rupert had a face-lift."

Rob Halford keeps it ‘Brütal’

Everyone’s favorite gay heavy metal legend, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford, knows that true metal is no joke. But it can be a video game.

After the massive success of "Guitar Hero" and "Rock Band" it was only a matter of time before a new wave of video game heavy metal began invading those game stores that exist in every mall now.

The latest is called "Brütal Legend" and is about a headbanger transported into a world of metal where he battles evil with his magic-powers-filled Flying V guitar. Joining Halford in voicing characters for the game will be Lemmy from Motorhead, Jack Black, Ronnie James Dio and Lita Ford.

But remember, you have to use the umlaut when you spell the title or it’s not as brutal.


NBC emerald-lights ‘Dorothy Gale’

If you’re an American gay man, it’s a statistical likelihood (but not a metaphysical certainty) that you’re a fan of both "The Wizard of Oz" and "Ugly Betty." And if you’ve been waiting for someone to put your "Oz" chocolate into your "Betty" peanut butter, wait no more.

A new pilot for NBC called "Dorothy Gale" transplants the plucky L. Frank Baum heroine to the modern day. Our heroine moves from her home in Kansas to the glittering city of Manhattan, where she gets a job in the art world and has to contend with a — wait for it — "wicked" boss. If the network doesn’t put it to sleep with the poppies, "Dorothy Gale" could land on TV this fall.

Octomom branding
Nadia Suleman always claimed that she detested the name "Octomom," but now the future reality TV star wants to license the name for stuff like diapers.

On April, 10, an application was filed on her behalf with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office by her lawyer fired off a letter to a Houston novelty company that had filed a trademark claim a month earllier, claiming they had no legal rights to the word. However, Suleman didn’t coin the word either.
