Drunk Make-up artists! Table8 Closes at Cooper Square! Jimmy Buffett's Buffet Hotel! Miley's Barely There Shorts!

It always seems that no matter how much Celebrity Scoop we write about in a given week, there's also lots more that we didn't have time to get to. So from now on, every Friday we'll be rounding up the week's Infamous Hotels. This weekly list will include hotels that celebrities visited (and it made the news) but also hotels that really up the "Eww" factor. This can easily done if you are Jessica Simpson's make-up artist and you get sloshed at the Sunset Tower Hotel.

· Sunset Tower Hotel: We knew the Sunset Tower took no bullshit from its guests or employees but now we know they will not tolerate make-up artists who get wasted and "disturb the peace." Mary Phillips, on the right here in JSimp's TweetPhoto, was arrested early this morning for being drunk in public, according to TMZ. Word is her BFF and client, Jessica Simpson tried to bail her out but was turned away because Phillips was too drunk to be let out. Hmmm...sounds like our kind of girl. [TMZ]

So from now on, every Friday we'll be rounding up the week's Infamous Hotels. This weekly list will include hotels that celebrities visited (and it made the news) but also hotels that really up the "Eww" factor.

· Maritime Hotel, New York: Gossip Girl mom Kelly Rutherford was "cougaring it up" at the hotel's Hiro Ballroom with co-stars Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick. Can't say we blame her! [People Magazine]

Is This The Real Reason Why Hotels Have Bad WiFi Connections?

Porn jammers! Old men in the club! Fergie! Hotel Strikes!

It always seems that no matter how much Celebrity Scoop we write about in a given week, there's also lots more that we didn't have time to get to. So from now on, every Friday we'll be rounding up the week's Infamous Hotels. This weekly list will include hotels that celebrities visited (and it made the news) but also hotels that really up the "Eww" factor. This can easily done by manipulating the WiFi connection for guests.

The Sports Guy aka Bill Simmons recently offered up his take on Hotel WiFi after spending four weeks on the road promoting his new book. According to Bill, he stayed in nine hotels and all of them had wireless. (Hey that's an improvement from the past!) But he noticed that the connection was also worse at night than in the morning. We've noticed that too and just chalked it up to more people being in their rooms at night, doing work, surfing the internet, downloading episodes of "Glee" and the like. But Bill has a different and way better theory.

It's my belief thatcertain hotels scramble their wireless at night to discourage guests from surfing for porn. Why? So they will order adult entertainment from the hotel's pay-per-view system. I know ... it's dastardly. But if you're the hotel, why give the milk away for free when you can make people pay for the cow?

More importantly, would you really put it past them? This is the same business that built motion detectors into mini-bars; they're going to give up the in-room porn business without a fight? It's evil, it's desperate, it's despicable and brilliant. The Porn Jammer is my Great Call of the Week.

Well said, Sports Guy. Well said.

Jean Paul Gaultier Probably Flashed The High Line

Smoking cigarettes! Robbery! Voyeurs! Hotels in Bad Conditions! Crazy Comedians!

It always seems that no matter how much Celebrity Scoop we write about in a given week, there's also lots more that we didn't have time to get to. So from now on, every Friday we'll be rounding up the week's Infamous Hotels. This weekly list will include hotels that celebrities visited (and it made the news) but also hotels that really up the "Eww" factor. This can easily be done with a guest who attacks the housekeeper.

· Four Seasons Los Angeles: K-stew lights up on the balcony of her hotel room. At least she went outside to smoke?
· Ritz-Carlton San Juan, Puerto Rico: A businessman is tied-up in his hotel room and robbed.
· Standard NYC: Man sexually attacks a housekeeper while Jean Paul Gaultier gets giddy about putting on a nudie show in his hotel room.
· Holiday Inns: 300 of these hotels need to shape-up or they will lose their status with Holiday Inn.
· The Four Seasons Atlanta: C(K)razy c(k)omedian Katt Williams was kicked out of the hotel after causing a "disturbance." He says he bought a penthouse from the hotel and rented out seven rooms for seven nights. He thinks the dismissal may have something to do with his burglary arrest earlier this week. Meanwhile, the hotel says they have no record of Williams staying at the hotel.
