We had high hopes when rapper DMX appeared on "Fix My Life" a show from Oprah Winfrey's OWN network. After all, if anyone could get 42-year old Ruff Ryder Earl Simmons to calm the hell down from a self-professed life of promiscuity and substance abuse, than super-healer Iyanla Vanzant could do it. Well, DMX was having none of it, ended up cussing Vanzant out. Intervention? #fail.
So, we're not surprised to see this video from TMZ showing Dark Man X stripping off his boxer shorts, then running around in the nude (and court-ordered house-arrest ankle bracelet) around a Detroit hotel hallway.
But, the question is, did DMX get charged with indecent exposure from the video below?
Here at HC it's our job to wander into hotels and take photos of various points of interest so we can bring that information back to you, dear readers.
However, lately there's been more than a few times when we've been asked, especially in hotel lobbies and restaurants, to put our cameras away. We were befuddled. What was the big deal?
Today's news from the New York Post put it all in perspective. Seems some of those folks in said hotels? Well, they may not be traveling alone and they may not be with their recognized partner. We're talking "no tell, motel," protocol, here, even if it's a swanky hotel. After all, these peeps, they're not going to the Holiday Inn. Oops! Our bad. We were just looking at the drapes, man.
That seems to be the case when today's newspaper blew the lid on Kanye West and his alleged affair with a Canadian model at Atlantic City's Revel hotel. The story has gone so crazy viral--it's mind boggling. Kanye denied the accusations to TMZ, accusing the gal of being a fame seeker. Still, the pics of the two together don't help his cause. And Kim hasn't said a word yet.
Of course, that made us wonder, what hotels have been the scene for secret celebrity tête–à–têtes?
Somfh. Yup, we are dropping expletives, cuz we're crazy perplexed at this new breed of twentysomethin' Hollywood Brat Packers. They all seem hella intent in being filmed with “suspicious looking cigarettes” in hand. And again, we don't judge their downtime habits, we just get tired of the damage control they feel they need to go through, when they could just say "screw it, this is what I do." Certainly worked for Willie Nelson, Snoop, Woody Harrelson and plenty of other up-front chronic smokers.
Anyhoo, our latest offender/denier would be Blondie-in-training Miley Cyrus, who decided the perfect place to light up a spliff-like cigar, would be the balcony of her Miami hotel.
Now, do celebs smoke outside because they fear a hotel's $200 in-room smoking fee? BTW, that's us being smartasses.
See, they light up these big ‘ole "cigarettes", knowing the papps are watching, then have pictures like these show up...

We've recently written about sneaky hotel fees that are creeping onto our bills, but we'd like to think people are paying attention to obvious actions that will result in hefty charges.
That's why our eyes nearly rolled out of our heads when we read this little ditty in the New York Post and Entertainmentwise.com about Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt and their $5,000 laundry bill courtesy of the Dorchester in London.
According to the stories, the clueless couple, who were in England filming "Celebrity Big Brother" last month, sent four suitcases worth of clothes to the hotel's laundry service after running out of outfits to wear. The tab for their newly-washed threads? £3,500 ($5,000).
This apparently boggled Pratt's mind--"We were totally flabbergasted," he was reported saying, and upon returning to the States, he attempted to do some math with a writer and like most travelers, lamented on the power of the pound.
The NY Post reports that Rodman was hanging out at The Time Hotel in Manhattan, waving around a signed copy of Kim Jong Un's manifesto, "telling anyone who would listen what a great guy the North Korean dictator is."
Classic. (Rodman also went on a similar rant during a recent appearance on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos.)
Apparently the situation got so bad that Rodman was forced to leave the hotel, seeking refuge at a downtown Marriott. Which must have sucked because, according to Rodman's rep, The Time "is Dennis' favorite hotel." The relocation was attributed to security reasons and the fact that he needed to be "closer to the airport." Though hopefully, he won't be taking any more flights to North Korea for a while…
There will be no Candle in the Wind, or any breeze period period in Elton John’s hotel room at Brazil’s five-star hotel Ouro Minas as he insists on keeping it at 60.8F. Fair enough. We’ve heard about celebs and their riders when it comes to performances. Some more outrageous than others, but we gotta tell ya, this one from the Rocket Man, put us on pause.
Seems Elton requested a separate room for—his glasses. According to the Telegraph, a hotel spokesman said he needed another room for his glasses collection, at a temperature of 60 degrees in order to preserve them.
Let's all take a minute and absorb this.
'Kay, we all know Elton loves his funky specs—they are his trademark—so we’re not hating on him for wanting to take special care of them. In 2010 he told the BBC that he had over 250,000 pair. We're sure he didn't bring them all with him, so couldn't a special case do? A safe in the hotel? Did this need to go as far as an entire room?

Actress Party animal Kate Hudson literally had all eyes on her during a post-Brit Awards party at The Savoy in London earlier this week. The kind of shindig where regular hotel guests get shooed away to make room for A-listers, who then make a show of their A-lister-ness by doing whatever the heck they want. Which, in this case, involved dancing on the furniture and smoking cigarettes inside a hotel where smoking has been banned for the past five years.
The Daily Mail caught these photos of Kate, who was in town because her rocker husband, Matt Bellamy, and his band were nominated for a few Brit Awards. Now, we get the whole rebel- without-a-cause thing, but was the Savoy's party so packed there wasn't even standing room on the floor? Or maybe Kate was trying to get a better view of the other celebs who were there—Harry Styles, Mark Ronson, Tamara Ecclestone. Or maybe she was still worried about floodwaters from Rihanna's catastrophic visit back in 2011?

In light of recent events where Lindsay Lohan and her mother were allegedly turned away from Loews Santa Monica and Shutters, we have decided to create a running tab on where the starlet is not welcome to visit the lobby, much less reserve a room.
Here's a tally of hotels that have said, "your money (or lack of) is no good here" to Lohan and the reasons why:
Soho Grand (2007)
· A drunken break-down that got her carried to her room and then escorted out for the night, has caused the hotel to think twice on giving her a room.
Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel
· Spotted and videoed snorting cocaine is an easy way to be banned from any hotel.
Shutters on the Beach (2007)
· Lindsay trashed her room and even left a bloody syringe for the housekeeping staff to clean up upon check-out.
Mondrian Los Angeles (2007)
· Wouldn't accommodate her, claiming they were full, then witnessed the star losing her shit.
The Standard LA (2011)
· The hotel hasn't sent her packing, but after a drink throwing incident, LiLo blacklisted the hotel herself. Either way, you won't find her staying here.
Where else is LiLo persona non-grata? Find out after the jump!

It's a wonder she gets a hotel in any city at this point given that trouble seems to "follow" Lindsay Lohan wherever she goes!
She did win our award for the "Biggest Celebrity Performance in 2012" and, by the looks of it, she is campaigning for a repeat title in 2013.
This time it involves copious amounts of cigarette burns totally nearly $50,000 of damage. Well, slap your momma! What in fresh hell is going on, here?

10 days. That's all that's passed since the last Lindsay Lohan NYC hotel debacle. Now, as much as we have been clowning our girl hard on her antics, this might be one incident in her favor.
According to various reports including The New York Daily News, Lohan was hanging out on September 30th at 1 Oak, a nightclub in Chelsea. Apparently she was with a 25-year old congressional aide named Christian LaBella. Somewhere between the nightclub and returning to Lohan's digs for the night, a $500-a-night suite at the W New York Union Square, things got ugly. Lohan accused LaBella of taking photos of her with his cellphone and emailing them around, which he has denied. A ruckus ensued, and Lohan claims LaBella tried to choke her and she had to hide in her suite's bathroom for safety. She filed charges and LaBella counter filed his own.
However, it all seems to have blown over quickly as police say charges against LaBella have been dropped, even though according to Lohan's mother Dina, who told the New York Daily News Sunday afternoon, “She’s very shaken up.” and “Thank God he didn’t have a weapon.”
While most of us equate Nashville with Justin Timberlake (what, you don’t?) and a ridiculous rib scene, after today, it’s now going to be associated as the city where Olympic gold medalist (and hey, budding actor!) Shaun White showed his behind.
According to a TMZ report, the athlete got drunk Sunday in a hotel, which has now been identified in the Tennessean as the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel and "trashed" it. However, reports are conflicting. The newspaper only says White broke a phone. Nonetheless, upon hearing the ruckus the ginger-haired snowboarder was causing, hotel staff confronted him. He then allegedly pulled fire alarms,tried to kick someone, and then split his head on a fence while trying to run away from the scene. Soooo, no one can confuse him with Usain Bolt, that's for sure.
White has been arrested for public intoxication and vandalism of $500 or less. He has received treatment in a Nashville hospital where he was just released. He's reportedly refused to sign a misdemeanor citation.
Of course, we'll be following this news, if only to find out the well-being of one fine hotel!
