Octuplets’ mom stripped as ‘Angelina’

While octuplets’ mom Nadya Suleman recently stated she couldn’t remember the details of her exotic dancer past, the latest issue of In Touch Weekly features the alleged low-down on Suleman’s dancing days.

“I met her at an amateur contest, and we wound up doing parties together,” a stripper called “Sage” told the magazine. “She was overly flirty with the guys we performed for.”

In addition to that revelation, In Touch reported that “numerous sources” confirmed Suleman, who has previously denied any interest in copying or even being a fan of celebrity mom Angelina Jolie, danced under the name “Angelina” and hoped to become a household name one day.

“(Suleman) always said she wanted to be really famous,” explained Luis Ceballos, a limo driver who claims he once shuttled Suleman and other dancers to those aforementioned parties.

Beyonce’s dad on the defensive after audio prank On Tuesday, Howard Stern aired what he believed to be the out-of-tune tones of Beyonce, courtesy of a board feed from her TODAY show appearance last November. But the singer’s dad Mathew Knowles called foul on the “obviously altered” audio and, as it turns out, father knows best.

“At 12 years into her career, the last thing someone should be questioning is her vocal ability,” Knowles said in a statement sent to TMZ. “That would be like questioning if Kobe Bryant could shoot a jump shot. The vocals were obviously altered.”

later revealed the track was just a hoax, created by someone who never expected it to be taken it seriously.

“It’s a little bit crazy,” the unnamed prankster told the gossip site. “No one in their right mind would sound like that, and no one would cheer for someone singing like that.”

Mike Tyson relates to Chris Brown While promoting a documentary about his own embattled life, former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson offered an empathetic take on Rihanna’s alleged abuser, Chris Brown.

“My personal opinion about that is, he’s just a baby,” Tyson told MTV News. “He’s just a little baby that don’t know how to handle his emotions when it comes to a woman. And he probably hears this and thinks, ‘I know how to handle my emotions’; we all think we do. But the fact (is), you look at this person and you might be crazy in love, but we don’t know how to handle those feelings.”

Although Tyson, who stood accused of abusing ex-wife Robin Givens and later served jail time following a 1992 rape conviction, stressed that he understood Brown’s situation, he was quick to condemn his own past actions.

“Do I think it’s right to beat up a woman? No — hell no,” he explained. “Have I violated and hit a woman before? Hell yeah. Was I wrong? Hell yeah. I’m a product of that environment. Do I regret ever doing that? Hell yeah. Would I do it again? Never.”

Dish on the fly Sure, Hugh Jackman’s been married to the same woman for 13 years, but that hasn’t stopped gossip bloggers from insisting it’s just an elaborate cover for the “Wolverine” star’s super-secret homosexuality. In an interview with Parade, Jackman reluctantly responded to the rumors. “I’d be happy to go and deny it, because I’m not,” he explained. “But by denying it, I’m saying there is something shameful about it, and there isn’t anything shameful.” … Note to paparazzi: don’t mess with a stressed Katherine Heigl. A report in the National Enquirer claims that’s what one shutterbug learned after he snapped an in-traffic shot of the “Grey’s Anatomy” actress and a VIP passenger. “I’m with my mother, and I swear if you don’t move I’ll run you the f--k over!” Heigl was heard to shout just before the pap hightailed it. … Actor and baby-wipe enthusiast Terrence Howard kept his TMI reputation intact on the set of his new film, “Fighting.” In fact, according to co-star Channing Tatum, Howard practically outdid himself. “The more I hung out with Terrence, he would constantly talk about the craziest s--t,” Tatum told MovieLine. “Like he told me about how there’s no cell that could ever hold him because he’d make acid from his urine and his feces. I was like, ‘That’s cool? I guess? And now I know something you’d do if you were in jail.’”
