Celebrity roundup

Beyonce goes short


M iley Cyrus is not alone: Other celebs are going short for summer’s hottest month. Or maybe Matt Damon tipped off the trend by shaving his head for Elysium. Beyonce Knowles yanked out her extensions and unveiled a drastic new look on Instagram. Must feel good.

Mystery man

Lindsay Lohan just couldn’t keep to herself during her rehab stint. An insider told RadarOnline reports that while at Cliffside Malibu center The Canyons star hooked up with a young man who was kicked out due to their taboo liaison.

‘Big’ issues

A run of ethnically insensitive remarks has continued dogging CBS’ Big Brother, raising questions about whether the network should be doing more to police it. On the 24-hour Internet feed of the house, Boynton Beach real estate agent Amanda Zuckerman referred to a black housemate as “the dark knight” and “the black mamba,” mocked the accent of a Korean woman and referred to “Puerto Rican showers.” “I’m just joking,” said Zuckerman, 28. “I’ve had sex with Puerto Rican guys before.” CBS Corp. boss Les Moonves, whose wife, Julie Chen, is host, has said he finds some of the behavior “appalling.”

No fly zone

Another ex child star gone wild! Tom Guiry, best known as Scott Smalls in The Sandlot, allegedly head butted a police officer in a drunken rage at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston Saturday, TMZ first reported. United Airlines officials flagged Guiry, 32, because he seemed too intoxicated to fly. When he was told he couldn’t travel, that’s when the trouble started. The actor was booked for assault, causing bodily injury on a public servant. He posted $5,000 bail and must appear in court next month.

Ancient history

It wasn’t me! That’s what Lauren Silverman’s former Miami Country Day teacher is saying after recent reports linked him to Simon Cowell’s married, pregnant gapal. In an email to The New York Daily News, Steve Lewis denied they were lovers but does admit some bad behavior. “There was never any month, month and a half, or two-month affair between me and a student,” Lewis wrote. “There was a drunken phone call, late at night, for which I am eternally sorry and remorseful and for which I resigned the following day OVER 20 YEARS AGO.”

Meanwhile, The Daily Mirror reports that Silverman will move into a $15 million Beverly Hills mansion owned by Cowell, along with her mom, local realtor Carole Saland, while he keeps a place nearby.
