Teaser Alert: They got arrested!

They were one of the highlights of the World Cup so far with their gorgeous looks and orange mini-dresses.

But while armchair viewers admired the 36 gorgeous Dutch girls supporting their team against Denmark, the World Cup organisers were rather more suspicious.

And when the half-time whistle blew they moved in and gave all 36 the red card after it was revealed they were part of an elaborate piece of ‘ambush marketing’ by the Dutch beer company Bavaria who are not official sponsors at the tournament.

It was every male football fan’s dream as the stunning army of Dutch supporters cheered from the stands at Johannesburg’s Soccer City stadium as Holland played in their first game of the tournament.

But now a full investigation has been launched with World Cup pundit Robbie Earle axed by ITV today after tickets for matches in South Africa were found to have been used for ‘unauthorised purposes’.

The broadcaster said a ‘substantial number’ of tickets, which were for Earle’s friends and family, had been passed to a ‘third party’. The incident relates to the Bavaria beer stunt.

Meanwhile there were plenty of genuine Holland fans dressed up in orange, some as air crews, to provide the colour for the second half. But it wasn’t quite the same…

Legal expert says Perez could face federal charges…could be career “suicide”.

We know: when it comes to celebrity gossip, there have to be limits. Perez Hilton could face super-serious charges for ignoring one of those limits by tweeting a photo of Miley Cyrus climbing out of a car without
underwear this week. You won’t believe how insane this is.

Earlier this week Perez Hilton reportedly tweeted a photo of 17-year-old Miley Cyrus climbing out of a vehicle and wearing a dress but no underwear. Perez warned: “If you are easily offended, do NOT click here … Oh, Miley! Warning: truly not for the easily offended!”

But the warning was not enough. The fact that Perez published the photo could bring a super-damper on his career. Perez Hilton has said that he gets over 8 million pageviews in a normal day, and there are many media companies who have sought to buy him out — but this latest Miley move could very realistically be the end of Perez Hilton’s celebrity blogging days.

Says L.A.-based attorney Jeffrey Douglas, a child pornography case specialist: “We’re not talking about a misdemeanor. You don’t have to know what the definition of the law is, all you have to do is knowingly distribute the photograph.” Douglas also called Perez’s move “suicidal” to his career.

Salon also reported that Perez Hilton “could be prosecuted on the state or federal level — or both — with a conviction potentially resulting in a 15 year sentence and lifetime registration as a sex offender.”

PopEater has more, including the fact that neither Miley Cyrus nor Perez Hilton has commented on the shot (Perez has taken down his incriminating tweet, but apparently other sites picked up the photo of Miley). Monday a clearly red-faced Perez tweeted a link to a video in which he insisted that he and Miley are “cool” and that he just likes to “lovingly taunt” her.

Hollywood stunner Brittany Murphy, who found big screen success after her breakout role in “Clueless,” died Sunday after collapsing in the shower.

Los Angeles cops are investigating the 32-year-old’s sudden death, but a coroner official said it “appears to be natural.”

An autopsy is pending – over the objections of her British screenwriter husband, Simon Monjack, who told hospital staffers he didn’t want one, according to the gossip Web site TMZ.

The screen siren and singer was in full cardiac arrest and could not be revived after her beloved mother – who told paramedics the actress was diabetic – found her unconscious in the shower, TMZ reported.

Five paramedics who arrived after the 8 a.m. 911 call feverishly administered CPR as Monjack wandered around in his pajama bottoms, a witness told RadarOnline. Murphy was pronounced dead at 10:04 a.m. at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

The troubled starlet rose to fame in 1995 as the sidekick Tai in “Clueless,” who went from awkward wallflower to snotty hottie. She has appeared in more than 25 movies since then, including 1997’s “Bongwater,” “Girl, Interrupted” in 1998, “8 Mile” and “Sin City.”

Murphy, whose gravelly voice rocked the animated film “Happy Feet,” even broke into the dance club world with the hit single “Faster Kill Pussycat.”

Murphy lived in Edison, N.J., before moving to California when she was 13 and landing her first television role in “Blossom.”

She underwent a transformation from a too-pudgy-for-Hollywood brunette to a bone-thin blond – with cleavage ample enough to land her in Maxim’s 100 hottest women in 2006.

Speculation over her weight loss haunted her for years, and in 2005, she was dropped by her agent and publicist, fanning the gossip flames. At the time, she dismissed reports that her weight was connected to drug use or an eating disorder.

“I have never tried [cocaine] in my entire life. I’ve never even seen it,” she told Jane magazine. “I am also way too high-strung . . . Can you imagine? My God. I think my heart would explode.”

Friends openly worried that she’d become addicted to the prescription painkiller Vicodin after undergoing plastic surgery.

“Brittany has been living life on the edge,” one source told Britain’s Daily Mail.

She was set to play a small role in Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming film “The Expendables,” due out in August. But she had been mainly reduced to low-budget indie flicks, including “Across the Hall,” which opened two weeks ago in only two theaters.

Earlier this month, she abruptly left the Puerto Rico set of “The Caller” amid reports she’d been fired. Her publicist called it “creative differences.”

Sunday, Twitter was abuzz with tributes from stars, including an old squeeze, Ashton Kutcher, her co-star in 2003’s “Just Married.” “See you on the other side kid,” Kutcher tweeted.

Screenwriter and director Kevin Smith referred to her oft-quoted line in “Clueless”: “Sad to hear about Brittany Murphy. G’night, Ms. Murphy; hope you’re rollin’ with the homies someplace nice.”

Rapper 50 Cent has disclosed he would like to make a ‘hit’ album with Susan Boyle.

In an interview, the musician also disclosed he would like to party with the Britain’s Got Talent sensation, who has been reported to be shy towards her new found fame.

The 48 year-old Scottish spinster last week reached number one in the US album charts with her debut release, I Dreamed a Dream.

It has since held on to the spot on the album charts.

Boyle is said to have already made £5million in two weeks from 3.3m global sales of her debut album of the same name.

It was the best US opening for a female artist’s debut album, and the second best overall, since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991, according to Billboard.com.

It was the best US opening for a female artist’s debut album, and the second best overall, since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991, according to Billboard.com. The original rendition of the song on the talent show has had millions of views on YouTube and attracted celebrity followers including Demi Moore.

Now 50 Cent, the 34-year-old rapper who was shot nine times in 2000 before finding fame, is the latest celebrity to praise Boyle.

“Susan Boyle is hot right now. I got to get her on a track, for real. We’d make a hit,” he told the Daily Mirror.

“Everyone is talking about her, the lady from Britain’s Got Talent.

“She’s got an amazing voice, and together we’d get everyone dancing. I’m always looking to do something new and she’s cool, so I’ll ask somebody to let her know.”

He added: “I’d love to take her clubbing, show her around my world. She’d have a great time.”

Boyle has also claimed topped the charts in Australia and Ireland.

Although she ultimately failed to win Britain’s Got Talent, her April audition for the show became an international YouTube phenomenon.

It has now been viewed more than 300 million times on the Internet.

The One Six Three:

50 is an example of successful Capitalism and has, for a while now, been the actual marketing guy that gets the pat on the back.. He made good money off of his first album and reinvested through various mechanisms. Now, albums are hobbies. He can afford to lose money, on a concept like this, if it generates him enjoyment. People are never going to stop drinking Coca-Cola and that’s where the majority of his wealth stems from.

Point being: He’s attained a level of individual wealth that translates to Billboard Charts having more value than the the money, that comes with topping them.
