Shockingly, Rumer Willis Fails To Seduce Chace Crawford

Molly Friedman · 07/03/08 02:20PM

When a girl's starting to doubt her sex appeal, after a foray into acting that has thus far earned her parts as a back brace-wearing nerd and the part of "Smoking Girl" in something called Whore, there is no better way to regain confidence and prove just how fine you are than nailing a gay actor (allegedly). And that's just the challenge Rumer Willis set up for herself during a recent night out. According to the NY Post, the rising starlet and failed auditonee of Lindsay Lohan's lesbian love lottery spotted boy band groupie Chace Crawford at a birthday party and tried every boy toy magnet trick she could think of in an extensively planned and bitterly fought campaign to pull off the rarely accomplished task of getting him to switch teams.

Boo Hoo

Richard Lawson · 03/28/08 10:59AM

Oh poor JC Chasez. The complete nobody who has never done anything noteworthy except sing back-up for Justin Timberlake, says that the gay rumors, about him and Gossip Girl queen Chace Crawford, are "annoying". Leave him alone! He's allowed to have friends! Who he takes to Elton John parties and for poolside cabana romps! Being called gay is annoying! Though, JC, I'm curious as to what's more annoying: silly gay rumors (that you deal with obnoxiously), or dejectedly waiting in line at a Burbank unemployment office?

JC Chasez: 'Chace Crawford Is Not My Bum-Junkie'

Seth Abramovitch · 03/26/08 02:14PM

As rumors that JC Chasez and Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford are doing the naked pretzel reach a fever pitch—certainly prodded along by our own high-level informant's eyewitness account of the two sharing a poolside cabana at the Roosevelt—the second-most-talented NSYNC member called into Kiss FM 104.7 today to deny, deny, deny. (It happens about mid-way through this audio.) The Hollyscoop girls helpfully transcribed the exchange, which we excerpt below:

Defamer Exclusive: JC Chasez And Chace Crawford's Cabana Rendezvous...With Photo!

Seth Abramovitch · 03/24/08 05:58PM

Chace Crawford, the Gossip Girl star so pretty that one bat of his lashes is enough to instantly knock crowds of his tweenage fanbase clear unconscious, has been linked quite a bit lately to former NSYNC member JC Chasez. Not even a suspiciously timed and worded Page Six item describing the actor as being "surrounded by women" seemed to quell the rumors regarding these frequent bunk buddies. Now, via cameraphone-equipped operative, we bring you this latest addition to the Defamer Citizen Paparazzi files. It's an eyewitness account of what Chase and J.C. (can we just give them a celebrity couple's name already? Chésee it is!) were up to over this unseasonably warm L.A. weekend:
