Whitney and Bobby: Smashing couple?

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, smeared?

The U.K. Sun reported Thursday that the troubled duo has been banned from the Hotel Bel-Air in California for causing approximately $30,000 in damage to their hotel room during a three-hour (!) brawl.

Sources reportedly told the paper that the trouble started when Whitney tried to keep Bobby from continuing a bev-binge he’d begun by tossing back more than a few at the hotel bar.

When Bobby’s brother Tommy got in on the action and tried to calm Bobby down, one source told the tab, “all hell broke loose. Bobby and Tommy started throwing punches at each other.” The alleged damage? Broken doors, a smashed crystal table and a trampled 27-inch TV set.

But a hotel spokesman insists nothing of the sort ever happened. In fact, he said in a British radio interview, the couple weren’t even hotel guests on the night in question.

Didn’t they almost have it all … wrong?

Man who speaks with porked tongue

“[I did 'Letterman'] because I was promised a canned ham, but I’m still waiting for it … I’ve been a fan for a long time. I think that it’s a rite of passage for a candidate to appear on his show. That and the canned ham were the two reasons why I went on. I would like to say, for a second time, that I am still waiting for it.”

Nothing like a rolling stone

How many roads must a man walk down, before people start calling him a bad dad?

The answer, my friend, is blowing through the press. And Carol Dennis, the singer who a new unauthorized biography reveals was married to Bob Dylan for six years in the late ’80s and early ’90s and with whom the singer had a “secret” daughter, now 15, is none too happy about it.

“Bob and I made a choice to keep our marriage a private matter for a simple reason — to give our daughter a normal childhood,” Dennis told the press this week, adding that their daughter, Desiree Gabrielle Dennis-Dylan, opted to take her father’s last name two years ago.

What’s more, Dennis says, biographer Howard Sounes has got a lot of nerve implying the folk-singing legend was a shame-faced, absentee pops.

“To portray Bob as ‘hiding his daughter’ is just malicious and ridiculous,” she said. “That is something he would never do. Bob has been a wonderful, active father to Desiree.”

So don’t be calling Mr. Rainy Day Woman a fair-weather friend.

Juicy bits

You can call her “Fraulein Forehand” or Andre Agassi’s girlfriend. But whatever you do, don’t call Steffi Graf “Steffi.” She is just so over that girlish nickname and would very much rather you called her “Stefanie” from now on. “I like the name better,” the erstwhile tennis pro tells the German paper Handelsblatt. In other words, “Ich bin Stefanie … got that?”

Good shelter hunting: Matt Damon and his golfing partner were forced to dive for cover when gunshots rang out in the middle of their game at a Las Vegas golf course, the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. Damon and his buddy reportedly crouched in a batch of bushes until the scary scene blew over and the police hit the links in search of the culprits. No evidence was found, and the source of the gunfire remains a mystery, but rest assured that’s the last time Damon and his friend go golfing on a Grassy Knoll.

‘Nother pop star, ‘Nother novel. Justin Timberlake has reportedly snagged a seven-figure deal to write a novel, just like his old lady, Britney Spears. The title of the ‘NSyncer’s tome? “Crossover Dribble.” ‘Ncredible, but true.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Pilot"

    One of our first exposures to uncomfortable “Girls” sex comes early, in the pilot episode, when Hannah and Adam “get feisty” (a phrase Hannah hates) on the couch. The pair is about to go at it doggy-style when Adam nearly inserts his penis in “the wrong hole,” and after Hannah corrects him, she awkwardly explains her lack of desire to have anal sex in too many words. “Hey, let’s play the quiet game,” Adam says, thrusting. And so the romance begins.

    Marnie and Elijah, "It's About Time"

    In an act of “betrayal” that messes up each of their relationships with Hannah, Marnie and Elijah open Season 2 with some more couch sex, which is almost unbearable to watch. Elijah, who is trying to explore the “hetero side” of his bisexuality, can’t maintain his erection, and the entire affair ends in very uncomfortable silence.

    Marnie and Charlie, "Vagina Panic"

    Poor Charlie. While he and Marnie have their fair share of uncomfortable sex over the course of their relationship, one of the saddest moments (aside from Marnie breaking up with him during intercourse) is when Marnie encourages him to penetrate her from behind so she doesn’t have to look at him. “This feels so good,” Charlie says. “We have to go slow.” Poor sucker.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Shoshanna and camp friend Matt, "Hannah's Diary"

    We’d be remiss not to mention Shoshanna’s effort to lose her virginity to an old camp friend, who tells her how “weird” it is that he “loves to eat pussy” moments before she admits she’s never “done it” before. At least it paves the way for the uncomfortable sex we later get to watch her have with Ray?

    Hannah and Adam, "Hard Being Easy"

    On the heels of trying (unsuccessfully) to determine the status of her early relationship with Adam, Hannah walks by her future boyfriend’s bedroom to find him masturbating alone, in one of the strangest scenes of the first season. As Adam jerks off and refuses to let Hannah participate beyond telling him how much she likes watching, we see some serious (and odd) character development ... which ends with Hannah taking a hundred-dollar bill from Adam’s wallet, for cab fare and pizza (as well as her services).

    Marnie and Booth Jonathan, "Bad Friend"

    Oh, Booth Jonathan -- the little man who “knows how to do things.” After he turns Marnie on enough to make her masturbate in the bathroom at the gallery where she works, Booth finally seals the deal in a mortifying and nearly painful to watch sex scene that tells us pretty much everything we need to know about how much Marnie is willing to fake it.

    Tad and Loreen, "The Return"

    The only sex scene in the series not to feature one of the main characters, Hannah’s parents’ showertime anniversary celebration is easily one of the most cringe-worthy moments of the show’s first season. Even Hannah’s mother, Loreen, observes how embarrassing the situation is, which ends with her husband, Tad, slipping out of the shower and falling naked and unconscious on the bathroom floor.

    Hannah and the pharmacist, "The Return"

    Tad and Loreen aren’t the only ones to get some during Hannah’s first season trip home to Michigan. The show’s protagonist finds herself in bed with a former high school classmate, who doesn’t exactly enjoy it when Hannah puts one of her fingers near his anus. “I’m tight like a baby, right?” Hannah asks at one point. Time to press pause.

    Hannah and Adam, "Role-Play"

    While it’s not quite a full-on, all-out sex scene, Hannah and Adam’s attempt at role play in Season 3 is certainly an intimate encounter to behold (or not). Hannah dons a blond wig and gets a little too into her role, giving a melodramatic performance that ends with a passerby punching Adam in the face. So there’s that.

    Shoshanna and Ray, "Together"

    As Shoshanna and Ray near the end of their relationship, we can see their sexual chemistry getting worse and worse. It’s no more evident than when Ray is penetrating a clothed and visibly horrified Shoshanna from behind, who ends the encounter by asking if her partner will just “get out of me.”

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Frank, "Video Games"

    Hannah, Jessa’s 19-year-old stepbrother, a graveyard and too much chatting. Need we say more about how uncomfortable this sex is to watch?

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Marnie and Desi, "Iowa"

    Who gets her butt motorboated? Is this a real thing? Aside from the questionable logistics and reality of Marnie and Desi’s analingus scene, there’s also the awkward moment when Marnie confuses her partner’s declaration of love for licking her butthole with love for her. Oh, Marnie.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Vagina Panic"

    There is too much in this scene to dissect: fantasies of an 11-year-old girl with a Cabbage Patch lunchbox, excessive references to that little girl as a “slut” and Adam ripping off a condom to ejaculate on Hannah’s chest. No wonder it ends with Hannah saying she almost came.
