Uh-oh!

This may cause other publications to think TWICE before they decide to publish all those topless photos of Kate Middleton!

The Irish Daily Star has become the third magazine, following France's Closer and Italy's Chi, to showcase the snaps of the Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing nude during a recent vacation, but now, the man responsible for its financing has decided to stop giving them money in protest of the decision!

Richard Desmond chairs Northern & Shell in the UK, but through a joint venture in Independent News and Media, is responsible for the Irish Daily Star's funding.

Excuse us, WAS responsible!

UK Big Brother Is Coming Back!

We guess it just couldn't stay off the air!

The UK version of Big Brother, which ended its run on England's Channel 4 in September of 2010, will reportedly be brought back to life once again on Channel 5!

According to reports, the network's boss Richard Desmond is 'on the verge' of signing a deal with Endemol for the rights to reality competition. Commercial terms of the contract have been agreed upon both sides, and now all that's needed for things to be finalized are the proper signatures!

Sources have revealed that the contract is expected to last as long as five years, with the option for it to be reduced if it doesn't do as well as they expect it to! They've also allegedly bought the rights to Celebrity Big Brother.

Inneresting! We'll be curious to see how much viewership it garners, given the length of its hiatus off the air!

People get pretty into that show, so we imagine that they won't have even problems maintaining that five year contract!

Thoughts??

$20 Million For Tanning Grease, A Busted Weave, And Fake Tittays!

Ha! We don't know what's more twisted - that this guy thinks that making her the face of his channel is marketable or that he's willing to pay her as much as he is to do so - not to mention at the expense of his employees!

Although she recently signed a two year deal with another television network, Channel Five boss Richard Desmond is reportedly attempting to lure Jordan AKA Katie Price over to them with a $20 million deal!

And insider reveals:

"Money is no object for Richard and he thinks Katie would be the perfect person to help kick start Channel Five in a new era. It's vital he relaunches the channel with a bang."

Price, being the smart bitch that she is, instantly realized that in no way, shape, or form is she worth that much and is consulting her lawyers to see if she can break her previous contract!

And we LOVE to hear that Desmond thinks that money is no object, seeing as he's due to fire a quarter of his company's 300 employees today to 'cut costs!'

UGH. So unbelievably fucked up.

Thoughts??
