EVERY MORNING, we dig through the celebrity dirt to bring you the best of it. Here’s The Dredge…

Actress Nazanin Boniadi claims she was forced to scrub toilets with a toothbrush after betraying Scientologist micro-hunk Tom Cruise. Boniadi was allegedly being secretly ‘auditioned’ by the religion’s authorities for the part of Cruise’s next wife, but was punished after telling a friend all about it.

She also said she had to “clean bathroom tiles with acid and dig ditches in the middle of the night”. The church has denied the allegations. (Vanity Fair)

Meanwhile, Cruise has been spotted looking “sombre and tired” behind a glass of red wine in the first pictures since his divorce from Katie Holmes. Guess those luxury Adriatic cruises really take their toll. (Radar)


The Words

Royal jewels: How Prince Harry refers to the contents of his royal Y-fronts, according to fellow Vegas party guest Carrie Reichert, who says she enjoyed a “drunken fumble” with the third in line to the throne, who was in the nip at the time.  Also, Harry really likes being and saying “naked”. She recalled:

He was trying to get everybody to get naked. That was the whole point of him being naked. Girls were getting naked, he was screaming out ‘Everybody get naked!’


Class: What model Heidi Klum should have shown more of before deciding to “fornicate with the help”, according to her estranged husband Seal, who isn’t happy that she went on holiday with a bodyguard. (The Sun)

Jackson was “locked in his room” at the time, after AEG rep Randy Phillips had “screamed at him so loud the walls [shook]“. (LA Times)
