Shiloh Turns One!!

Can you believe a whole year has passed since the frenzy of the impending birth of the golden child of Brangelina, and then the frenzy over the People photo shoot and the $4 million price tag for Shiloh pics? Me either.

Anyway, US Magazine celebrates by putting a photo of Shiloh on their cover this week.

Shiloh is an absolutely stunning baby, but don't you think she looks like something out of The Crucible with that weird hood on?

The Starter Wife

In keeping with this weeks chick lit theme, Mia and I will definitely be Tivoing The Starter Wife on USA at 9/8c tonight!

Debra Messing is the leading lady in this four part series:

At first blush, the smart, beautiful, savvy and wryly funny Molly Kagan (Debra Messing), 41, may appear to be leading the charmed life as a prototypical Hollywood "Wife Of" and mother of the adorable six-year-old Jaden, but her life is about to become anything but typical. When her husband and the President of Production of Durango Pictures, Kenny, announces that he is divorcing Molly, he manages to instantly render her a "Starter Wife" and social pariah with a single phone call. Once she realizes that she has been given a do-over, the question for her becomes: what to do now?

The mini series is adapted from the book The Starter Wife by Gigi Levangie Grazer, who was once a starter wife herself, and felt the bitter sting of rejection when she had a separation from her producer husband, Brian Grazer.

The series also stars Judy Davis and Miranda Otto.

I can't wait! Something decent to watch in this horrible TV wasteland they call summer.

Lindsay's Ex is Charming

Calum Best, recently linked with Lindsay Lohan, told The Sun that he is addicted to booze, drugs and hookers. Nice. I'm sure he helped Lohan stay on the right path....oh wait, she is back on the wrong path again, isn't she.
"I'm a bad boy, I go out and get drunk," he tells The Sun. "I get high on cocaine and I do stupid debauched things with the wrong women. 'When I'm high I do stupid shit. I'm a red-blooded male and I'm addicted to sex. 'I feel my dad's blood running through my veins. I need to sort out my problems before it's too late. I don't want to be a sad old man on my own drowning my sorrows. 'This is a wake-up call. I've got to take responsibility for my life."
Quite the interview. Doesn't leave much to the imagination. I wonder how Lindsay feels about being called one of 'the wrong women'? Hopefully she doesn't get The Sun in rehab.

Get that Woman Some Sissors!

I don't know why everyone is all into Kate Hudson's business with respect to her son Ryder's long hair. Check out Celine Dion's son, Rene Charles!! Yikes!


It's sort of slow today, so here's something to totally waste your time if you are bored, Craigslist Missed Connections. Time will fly by and it's entertaining. I just can't image that if some guy gave me a sideways glance in the subway that I'd rush home and check Craigslist incase he left me a message!!

Opri Sues Birkhead.

Debra Opri has filed suit against Larry Birkhead for his unpaid legal bill of over $600,000.

Debra Opri wants to force binding arbitration under the terms of a contract in which she agreed to represent Birkhead in September, according to the lawsuit filed in Superior Court.
Opri was Birkhead's lawyer in his paternity dispute with Anna Nicole Smith, over Dannielynn. It was ultimately proven that Dannielynn is Birkhead's biological daughter and he now has custody of her. Back in April Opri served Birkhead with a bill for $620,000.

On his website, Larry Birkhead makes this cryptic statement:

Of course, that statement has been up on his website for quite sometime, so I guess he's sticking to his guns and not talking to Opri about it either!.

I can't really believe that Opri is suing Birkhead over this. I understand that she wants her money, but she could come to some sort of agreement with him, after all, Opri has received incredible publicity from this case, and she couldn't buy that kind of publicity if she wanted to.

UPDATE: Larry Birkhead released an official statement to TMZ:

Despite their filings, both Ms. Opri and her attorney received notification making them aware that I would be out of the state of California taking care of my daughter until the conclusion of an upcoming June custody hearing in the Bahamas. Although at this time, the public is not aware of the unbelievable circumstances which led to me firing Ms. Opri, the only question at the end of the day is, how much money will Debra Opri be paying me? Thanks to the efforts of my Bahamas attorney, Emerick Knowles, I am fortunate enough now to be spending time with my daughter, Dannielynn.

A)Larry is going to come out of this smelling like a rose - I can just tell
B) How come everyone is now releasing their official statements directly to TMZ? Lohan just did that and now Larry?

Nicole is Hilarious

So we all have heard about how Nicole Richie had a little bbq on Memorial Day and that Mischa Barton was there and decided to drink even though she was on antibiotics for her bronchitis and that got her sent to the hospital, blah, blah, blah...she is home now, all is well, moving on. Now the big dirt coming out of that party is the email invitation that Nicole herself sent out to all her gal pals, Us Magazine gives us the scoop,

"Let's glorify this day in your sluttiest tops and your tightest pair of tsubi jeans, even though we have no...clue what Memorial Day really means!!...There will be a scale at the front door. No girls over 100 pounds allowed in. Start starving yourself now. See you all then!!!"
Richie is taking all kinds of heat for the email. Her reps gave a statement to Us saying,

This invitation was sent via email to her friends who understand that she was responding in a joking manner to the constant untruths printed about her in the media. Her reference to Memorial Day was in no way meant to offend anyone but was simply an expression of her distaste for the current situation."
Please. Someone. Please make it stop. Obviously Nicole is trying to have a sense of humor about what is written about her in the tabloids. But, having said that, she had to have known that somehow, someone would leak it so why write it? I can only take so much more of these chicks. But I can't wait to see what they do next! Oh, and as a side note, why is it that so many of these woman choose to walk around barefoot? Gross!

Lindsay's Statement....

.....via her rep, of course.
"Lindsay admitted herself to an intensive medical rehabilitation facility on Memorial Day. Because this is a medical matter, it is our hope that the press will appreciate the seriousness of the situation and respect the privacy of Lindsay as well as the other patients receiving treatment at the facility."
Medical my ass. Girlfriend is a drunken dummy.

Book Reviews!

Mia and I have been in a reading frenzy this last week Mia has just finished Hollywood Car Wash, and I have, in a marathon session, finished A Model Summer,The Second Assistant and I'm almost finished The First Assistant, and just about to start Hollywood Car Wash.

Of course, this is all totally fabulous chick lit, 100% enjoyable.

A Model Summer, by Paulina Porizkova was an engrossing and easy read. It was a little bit deeper than your average chick lit book, but no less entertaining. Clearly it was based heavily on her own life and breakthrough into the world of modeling. The only thing that was a bit disappointing was the ending, which was sort of abrupt and left you hanging. I hope Porizkova left it like that so she can write a sequel, because I'd definitely read it.

The Second Assistant, by Clare Naylor and Mimi Hare. I just loved this book. Not only is it totally hilarious, it's a fantastic looked inside the inner workings of a real Hollywood Agency. It's light reading, but totally engrossing. I read it in two days! Highly recommended for summer reading.

The First Assistant: A Continuing Tale from Behind the Hollywood Curtain, by Clare Naylor and Mimi Hare. This is the sequel to The Second Assistant, and although it is still entertaining, it doesn't quite measure up to the first one and the story is a bit all over the place. There are a lot of thinly veiled references to A list celebs that you will recognize instantly, and it's fun to read just for the closure you'll get for the romantic sub-plot.

All in all, three great summer reads!!

Miss USA Falls Flat

The Miss USA pageant and beauty queens are really a wacky bunch compared to the snores over at the Miss America pageant. In another "YouTube" moment, poor Miss USA, Rachael Smith, got her heel caught in her dress and went straight down on her butt. I can not believe how fast she recovered and jumped up, maintaining perfect posture the whole time. She should have won just for remaining calm under pressure. Miss Japan ended up taking the Miss Universe crown.

Rosie Says It Was the Split Screen

Rosie has said it was the split screen used during her fight with Elisabeth Hasselbeck on Wednesday's The View, that upset her and made her decided not to return to The View to complete her contract.

Rosie is seen here on her blog in a video she made on Saturday night - talking about the situation. She doesn't look good.

This morning on The View, Barbara Walters addressed the situation, and reiterated that it was solely Rosie's decision to leave The View early and that she had spent all weekend sending affectionate emails back and forward with Rosie. Barf.

Then a very perky Elisabeth put her two cents in and said that she had been "in communication" with Rosie and they were discovering the "power of forgiveness". In other words, they have agreed never to speak to each other again.

Thirty seconds after I typed the above sentence - I found this story confirming that they will never speak again.

Promises, Promises,

After her DUI arrest on Saturday night, and the New York Post is reporting that Lindsay was back partying hard on Sunday and passed out in the car.

A series of shocking photos show a rubber-limbed Lohan stumbling out of the trendy club Teddy's at the Roosevelt Hotel, then sprawled in the front passenger seat of her black GMC, her head lolling back, her mouth agape and her heavy-lidded eyes firmly shut. Lohan was so out of it, a witness said, that she wasn't even aware of the flashes from paparazzi snapping the photos.

So, apparently Lindsay is checking into Promises rehab facility today. She's probably trying to do damage control on the whole situation. The cops have stated that a "useable" amount of cocaine was found in Lindsay's car on Saturday after the crash, so that adds to the trouble she's in, not to mention the underage drinking, and the continued underage drinking after the crash.

Hilariously, her father, Michael Lohan said "She's on the run now, things are only going to get worse from here". Hahahaha. Lindsay would have to be the most photographed person in Hollywood. I don't know how she could be on the run, as the pack of paparazzi always seem to know where she is.

I hope she takes her stint in Promises seriously, otherwise she's going to end up dying young.

X17 Online has all the pics!

Throw Her in Jail with Paris.....

Lindsay Lohan has been cited for DUI after crashing her Mercedes early this morning. Lindsay was admitted to a local hospital suffering minor injuries. She wasn't taken into custody, but was given a court date

Forgodssakes Lindsay!!!!!! Why, girl? Why? We were half buying the rehab story, but now we know you just got a nice rest while you were in Wonderland, pretending to be in rehab.

I hope they throw you in the slammer next door to Paris, at this stage, it's your only hope.

It's Official...

Rosie is definitely leaving The View three weeks early, after Wednesday's big fight with Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Brian Frons, President of ABC Daytime, issued the following statement:"We had hoped that Rosie would be with us until the end of her contract three weeks from now, but Rosie has informed us that she would like an early leave. Therefore, we part ways, thank her for her tremendous contribution to 'The View' and wish her well."

Rosie herself said this: "I'm extremely grateful. It's been an amazing year and I love all three women."

Wow - I am so surprised that Rosie is quitting early. She couldn't have just made nice and worked out her three weeks? There must have been so much more going on over at The View than we'll ever know, to make it that unbearable for Rosie to go on - or she's taking the easy way out. I'll be very interested to hear what Barbara Walters has to say on Tuesday.

In the meantime Barbara - if your looking for a couple of new co-hosts Mia and I would like to apply. We're very chatty and keep up with current events! Email us!!

Meanwhile - Trump has managed to get his two cents worth in as well - click here to see what he had to say

Link Time....

Pitt and Clooney look fantastic in their tux! Popsugar has tons of pictures of the event

AHOY Matey!! Britney goes sailing

Justin Timberlake is madly in love

Maddox Jolie-Pitt goes for a swim with Mariane Pearl

Ryan O'Neal won't be charged for firing a gun at his son

Paula Lied??

There is another story floating around today about Paula's alleged broken nose. And that story is that she didn't actually break her nose! What's going on here?

According to Page Six, Paula didn't trip over her dog at all!!

"It hurt so bad . . . I fractured my toe, as well," Abdul told reporters. But a source tells us it's a coverup. "Paula did not break her nose. She had pitched a fit, threw something into a mirror or glass object, and a shard of glass struck her in the face, which explains why Paula's nose didn't seem swollen," said our spy. A rep for Abdul termed the account "absolutely, categorically untrue."

Hmmm. If this is true - I would love to know what Paula was pitching a fit about, and why would she tell a big lie about her nose? She could have said she had an accident unpacking the dishwasher!!

Did Rosie Trash Elisabeth's Dressing Room?

Rumors are going around that Rosie was so furious after her big fight with Elisabeth Hasselbeck on Wednesday mornings show, that she trashed Elisabeth's dressing room. ABC is denying it.

Page Six is also reporting that several photographs of Elisabeth were defaced.

Yesterday, Rosie's chief writer, Janette Barber, was allegedly escorted from the building after she was caught drawing moustaches on photographs of Hasselbeck that hang in the "View" studios. The Post's Adam Buckman reports ABC confirmed in a statement only that "photographs at 'The View's' offices were defaced. Rosie O'Donnell was not in the building. ABC Legal and Human Resources are investigating the matter." Barber is an old friend of O'Donnell who worked with her years ago on "The Rosie O'Donnell Show."

Yesterday, Rosie had a scheduled day off and Kathy Griffin hosted the view and the "fight" was discussed only briefly. I watched The View today and it was "previously recorded", so I'm not sure what that means, but I thought that Rosie was sort of ignoring Elisabeth and talking over the top of her, so this morning was a non-event.

Rosie has been hinting on her own blog that she might not be returning to The View on Tuesday. She has also put up this very cryptic video!. What does it all mean?

I think she'll be back on Tuesday - if only to have the last word.

Rosie V Elisabeth

Isaiah Washington Out?

Yesterday we told you that T.R. Knight, who plays George on Grey's Anatomy, is still waiting to find out if he will be back next season. Today, US Magazine is reporting that trouble maker Isaiah Washington will not be back. Still in hot water after using a slur toward T.R., US is quoting a 'source close to ABC',

"He will not be back as a series regular. He could possibly show up for a few episodes" next season.
However, Washington's rep disputes the report saying,

"Isaiah is not off the show. We do not have a contract yet, but we expect to."

So, they don't have a contract so they don't know for sure, but they are not disputing the idea of Washington possibly only doing a few guest spots. That solution makes sense to me given how the season finale had his character leave Christina at the alter and cleared out of their apartment.
US goes on to quote a 'Grey's source' saying,

"The cast - especially the women - just don't like him."

Hmmm, that's a pretty big statement. Katherine Heigl has made her feelings clear, but I'm not sure I'm willing to believe that no one likes him. Although, he did make an ass out of himself so anything is possible.

Ocean's 13

How hilarious are those Ocean's 13 boys? They have been doing a bunch of interviews promoting the movie which is just fine with me. They are all such good friends and love to joke around with each other. Check out what George Clooney and Matt Damon had to say about Brad Pitt (anyone else notice the use of the word 'wife'?).
Damon: "Brad has had it tough. He's ..."
Clooney: "Hobbled with children ..."
Damon: "And that wife ..."
Clooney: "That horrible, ugly wife."
Damon: "I mean, to go home to her every day ..."
Clooney: "What do you do?"
Damon: "Well, you have your work. That's about it. You can take refuge there."

In other Ocean's 13 hottie news, at the amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS Benefit in Cannes last night, George auctioned off a kiss to benefit the cause! I'm dying to know how much the winning woman bid, how lucky is she!?

UPDATE: The kiss went for $350,000! $350,000!!!! The woman's boyfriend put the money up for it! What a guy!! Wow. $350,000. OK, I'll stop. You can see the video here.

American Idol - The Finale!!

It's started!! Ryan and Simon bicker for a few seconds and then almost immediately, Blake and Jordin are singing "I Saw Her Standing There". Blake has terrible shoes on again.

Ryan throws it over to Gwen Stefani on tour. Mia thinks she's lip synching. It's hard to tell! Something's definitely off.

Kelly Clarkson!! Looking good in over the knee boots and a short dress!! She sounds fantastic!

Group song! Sanjaya still can't sing. All the guys are wearing white suits - I hate that look. Phil was allowed to take off his Navy uniform for tonight - that's a relief.

Ugh, Blake is rapping with some guy. Awful.

Now the girls! All in white as well. Gina's had a new haircut!! Haley's legs are still long.

Tony Bennett is well enough to perform and sings "Once In My Life".

Yay - Carrie Underwood is singing "I'll Stand By You". Carrie is my favorite Idol. Although she looks a bit odd wearing a long dress over jeans! Carrie is so gracious -thanks Idol and all her fans. She's very smart not to forget where she got her big break!

Sanjaya is getting his own segment - and oh my god - he's performing with Joe Perry from Aerosmith!!! What?????

GREEN DAY!!! Fantastic. The rumors were true. They sing "Working Class Hero".

The wizards at Idol have managed to coax Rubben Studdard out of hiding to sing with Jordin. Rubben still sounds great.

Poor Taylor Hicks - he had to follow Green Day.

Bette Midler - fabulous - wait - she's singing - Wind Beneath My Wings. Nooooooo. Mia and I are wondering what she's doing there - I suggested Bette needed a night out?

9:50 - only about 8 minutes left before we find out who wins.

American Idol tribute to Sgt Pepper!! Kelly Clarkson comes out first and sings Sgt Peppers, then out comes Hicks - enough said. Then Carrie again - looking so much better in a lovely short black dress and singing "She's Leaving". Suddenly she's being backed up by the Idols. They appeared out of nowhere. Rubben shows up and sings Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. Is this medly ever going to end? It's 9:56 and still no winner. Now the Idols are singing "I'll get by with a little help from my Friends".

9:58 and there's a commercial. This doens't leave much time for the winner to sing "This is my Now" and sob.

10:03 - It's finally time. Ryan tells us there were 74 million votes. Simon and Randy both think it's going to be Jordin.

Dim the lights - it's JORDIN.

The crowd goes wild. She's excited. Blake doesn't really look that unhappy. Jordin expresses her love for everyone! It's over for another year!!

American Idol Finale - Red Carpet!

First of all, it just blows my mind that this particular event has a red carpet, and secondly, I didn't recognize anyone from the photos except Jordin, and the ever fabulous, Bobby Trendy. His whole outfit really fits in with the entire theme of the Idol finale, don't you think?

Rosie vs. Elizabeth UPDATE

Elizabeth Hasselbeck told Extra TV that all is well between her and Rosie even after this morning's blow up.

“I am fine. We are used to debating things there. You have women who care a lot about things. The best thing about today is that there’s no slow boil, none. It’s there, it’s an issue, it’s dealt with and it’s over. If there are tensions, [and] obviously there was, it’s dealt with in the moment.”
“We’ve invested a lot into our friendship. We also have a lot of passion. The best thing about us is that we are honest and deal with things up front. I honestly think, I believe that we are mature women who can resolve. I hope we can. I would hope that a disagreement or a heated debate wouldn’t be the end of a relationship. … They take work. I’m hoping that can happen here too. I don’t think that is impossible at all.”

Personally, I think Elizabeth is full of crap. I loved that she defended herself against Rosie but you can't tell me that she isn't the slightest bit pissed anymore. I'm just not buying the 'friendship' angle either. I hope that once Rosie leaves, Elizabeth will tell us how she really feels.

Does Anyone Care Anymore?

Dial Idol is predicting that Jordin Sparks is well ahead of Blake Lewis in the vote for the next American Idol. But, according to Reality Blurred, Blake is ahead in internet searches.

Hitwise’s Bill Tancer breaks down the search data for Time, finding that Blake’s
lead has decreased, at least among searchers. He “is edging out 17-year-old
Jordin Sparks by just 25%. Compare that to his searches for the prior week,
which were 270% more numerous than Jordin’s.”

I can explain the 270% ahead from the prior week. It was because of this report. It was off the charts in searches on just one day!

Also, I heard a report on MSNBC today that Blake hopes that Jordin will win tonight. I'll bet he does because he thinks he's going to be the next Daughtry.

Personally, I think that this has been the most boring season of Idol ever, and I'm glad it's all going to be over tonight, and we can start concentrating on Pirate Master

Rosie V Elisabeth

Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Rosie went at it on The View this morning. There's something about this fight that puts us on Elisabeth's side - which is shocking in itself!! It's long but worth it.

Is He Or Isn't He??

We are all dying to know if T.R. Knight will be back as lovable George next season on Grey's Anatomy. Apparently we are not the only ones being kept in the dark. T.R. tells Access Hollywood that he doesn't even know!
"I literally don't know. It would be nice to know if I'm supposed to report back soon. If you're supposed to report back to work in a month and a half, I would really like to know that because I would like to know if I can shave my head."

I would think that they would keep him on for sure. Isaiah Washington, on the other hand, is probably out...no pun intended.

Oprah Gets Daddy to Zip it

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when Oprah called her father, Vernon Winfrey, to question him about the memoir rumors. As we told you yesterday, Oprah was said to be 'shocked' when she learned from Page Six that Mr. Winfrey was penning "Things Unspoken" about his daughter. Today, TV Guide is reporting that the book is officially 'on hold".

Vernon Winfrey, who still runs a Nashville barbershop, told TV Guide in an exclusive interview. "There is no book," he says, denying reports that he's been peddling a memoir titled Things Unspoken. "We might think about it later on," he went on to say. If he does decide to do it "later," Vernon's not sure if he'd want to collaborate with Oprah, whose book-club efforts have helped sell millions of copies of the works featured on her show. "Well, I don't know," says Vernon. "We have to decide."
When Vernon was pressed as to if Oprah herself talked him out of writing the book, he got a bit defensive saying,

"It's just on hold right now, OK?"
Ok, Ok. Geesh. I bet he got paid off.

Janet Jackson on US Weekly

Janet Jackson is Us Weekly's cover girl this week and gives them a peek at how she keeps looking so hot....check out those abs! She says that she is finally in a good place after all her yo-yo weight issues, now down to 120 lbs!

On how you can look like her:
“If I can do it, anybody can do it. Eating light and clean helps, but you really shouldn’t think of it as a diet, otherwise you feel like you’re depriving yourself. If you crave something, you should have a little bit of it, then let it go and move on. Do a little exercise so you’re back on track.”

On eating right:
“It’s about control and it’s a balanced diet. Of course I have cheat days! Especially with my dancers, who love to eat. And after a hard day of work, they want to unwind and grab a drink, and alcohol is not good for my diet with all the extra calories. I try to have a glass of wine, but then somebody comes with a lemon drop and it’s so good. You feel like you’re drinking cough syrup or candy, and before you know it, the next day comes and you feel it. I make up for it with a few more reps when I lift weights.”

Seems to be working for her! She looks incredible! And her advice sounds a bit easier to follow than Gabrielle Reece's.

This Is My Now

It definitely was Jordin Sparks' NOW last night, as she out classed and out sang and out dressed Blake Lewis every step of the way during American Idol.

The winning song from the writing competition "This is my Now" wasn't too bad at all and Jordin sung it with such passion that she couldn't even hold it together at the end and started to cry. Blake couldn't hold it together for other reasons, it was obvious he hated the song and didn't really put that much into performing it. He was probably mesmerized by his own hideous gold shoes. Where did he get those?

Overall Simon said that Blake performed the first song the best, but Jordin "wiped the floor" with him in the the singing department. Paula loved everyone equally, and Randy, dressed as some throwback from Sgt Pepper, liked Blake but gave the night to Jordin.

Ryan made a point of mentioning Paula's broken nose and then called her dog a bitch, but implying that he was really talking about Paula. She took it well.

Jordin to win it all!!

Angie's Going To Take a Year Off and Give Brad a Well Deserved Break!

In an interview given at Cannes today, Angelina Jolie has revealed that after this project in Prague, and then another two month project, she will be taking a year off to be with her family. Brad Pitt's sigh of relief was heard throughout Cannes. Brad was back at the villa taking care of the four kids while Angie was giving this interview. Brad has been toting those kids all over the place by himself lately!! I'm also worried about Maddox - that poor kid doesn't know if he's coming or going, all those different schools and interruptions - it can't be good for him. Maybe Angie is going to stay in New Orleans for a year so Maddox can do 1st grade without changing schools?

(Doesn't Brad look hot in that tux?)

Gabrielle Reece's Summer Diet Plan

Professional volleyball player Gabby Reece has a diet plan for us and she assures us that it will be easy!

"Monday: Eat healthy. This means...
No soda or juice, only water. No pasta, bread, or white stuff. No white milk, sugar, flour, rice, etc. - nothing processed. Nothing from a jar, the frozen-food section, a bag, or that has an extended shelf life. Stay away from the microwave - cook with good old fashion fire. Load up on veggies. Make sure to eat a big breakfast. Watch your portions. Chill on the snacking.Get some good sleep, even if you have to force yourself to go to bed. No late-night eating.

Wednesday and Friday: Do the same as Monday. See how you feel. Check your mood and energy level.

Tuesday, Thursday, and the weekend: Live your life as you normally do. Don't react from the day before and go nuts. Just do what you normally do.

Now, on the days you're eating healthy, do some kind of activity — walk, run, ride a bike, lift weights, go shoot hoops, take a fitness or dance class — just do something. Move. Watch less TV and spend less time on the computer."

So basically, I'd eat nothing on Monday, Wednesday and Friday because other than fresh vegetables, I'd have no clue what to reach for then by Tuesday and Thursday, I'd be so damn starving, I'd plow through a full package of Oreos and a pound of pasta. Ok! Whose with me?!

Spice Girls Reunion?

It seems the Spice Girls are making a come back....oh yay! News of the World is reporting that they have shots of Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton coming out of a 'top-secret' recording session this week.

Ginger and Baby Spice could hardly contain their joy, jumping up and down, giggling and hugging each other after laying down vocal tracks for their first CD in seven years at their former producer's home on Tuesday. Emma, 31, and Geri, 34, were seen leaving Richard Stannard's £4m house. Mel C, 33, is thought to have been there. Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham, and Scary, Mel B—who are both in Los Angeles—will fly to England to record their parts in a few weeks.
The Spice Girls split in 2001 after selling 50 million records. According to an 'aide', the driving force behind the comeback is Victoria Beckham herself. Gee, what a coincidence that she just happens to be filming her new reality show!

Oprah's Daddy to Pen a Tell-All

Oprah Winfrey's father is said to be writing a book dishing about all things Oprah called "Things Unspoken" and apparently, Oprah had no idea. The Daily News called her to get a comment and she says she was blind sided because it was the first she had heard about it and added that she is "shocked" and "disappointed".

"One of my assistants said, 'The Daily News is calling. They say they heard your father is writing a book about you.' I said, 'That's impossible. I can assure them it's not true.' But then my sister said, 'I think you should call your father.' I called him and it turned out he is writing a book. The worst part of it was him saying, 'I meant to tell you I've been working on it.'  The last person in the world to be doing a book about me is Vernon Winfrey," O added. "The last person."
She sounds totally shocked for sure. I wonder if she is worried about anything he might write about? I think I'll be reading this one for sure!

Paula Breaks Her Nose

Paula Abdul has broken her nose trying to stop herself tripping over her dog!! Her dog is a Chihuahua. Abdul wasn't admitted to the hospital, so she's probably not in bad shape, and her publicist has confirmed that Paula will be at tonight's performance of American Idol.

"I took a nasty fall ... trying not to hurt my dog. I bruised myself on my arm ... my chest, my waist all the way down to my hip. All from my little chubby Tulip," Abdul said.

Paula probably did this on purpose so she'd have an excuse to get loopy on painkillers so she can get through a whole hour with Blake Lewis singing three songs, and keep a smile on her face when he yodels the required treacly ballad. Jordin's yodelling will be much more bearable.

I can't wait. I'm sure Paula will provide us some unintended comedy tonight.


Joan Rivers is Honest

Joan Rivers is currently in Britain where she judged the Miss Great Britain contest. In a very honest, and hilarious, interview with The Daily Mail, she gives a bit of insight into her many plastic surgeries. Rivers is 73 but looks like....well....a 73 year old trying to look 43.

"Look around," she says. "I am not a supermodel. I am not the one the men fall hopelessly in love with. I did not come from the lucky sperm club with all the money."
Is that why she has had so much work done? How ugly was the teenage Joan Rivers — or rather, how ugly did she think she was?
"I was not the prettiest girl in the class," she admits. "I was a very ordinary girl. If you come from my family your mother tells you over and over again that you are the most beautiful and wonderful thing and suddenly you go to school and you realise you're a pig."
And so she set out to remake her face, although she claims Hollywood is full of new faces. "An albatross around my neck," she calls it — she is the only one who's honest about it. "I have done what everyone does in California," she says. "Goldie Hawn has a totally different face from when she started. I believe in plastic surgery," she says.
She goes on about her surgeries which include (but are probably not limited to) an eye lift, two face lifts, at least one nose job and massive amounts of botox and says that her plastic surgeon now refuses to see her. She also talks about the guilt she still feels about her husband's suicide. He killed himself just two days after she left him. She was having liposuction when he died. But, to lighten up the mood a bit, here is my favorite quote from the interview:

"My motto is 'better a new face coming out of an old car than an old face coming out of a new car'. Spend your money on you."
It's a great interview. You can read it here.

Guys Use Weight Watchers Too!

Greg Grunberg, star of Heroes, recently lost 35 pounds by following the Weight Watchers Core plan and now he is the new face of the company! Grunberg will be Weight Watchers first male spokesperson. It's about time, don't you think? Greg says that one of his goals is the change the image of the company and let men know that anyone can follow the program.

TomKat Gets Around!!

Here's Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise and adorable Suri, on the set of her movie "Mad Money" last week. I don't know if it's just this picture, but don't you think that Tom Cruise has been looking younger and younger lately? Maybe he's had a face lift? He's definitely lost weight since the wedding. This picture of them looks like it was taken 20 years ago. Is "Mad Money" set in the '80's?

These two really get around, they were spotted on the weekend in Georgetown biking on the C&O Canal towpath, and apparently were in good spirits and signing autographs and having their photo's taken with the ordinary folk of Washington.

Britney Pulls a Milli Vanilli

Britney took her lip-syncing show on the road to Olando this weekend. This time, she had a bit of a technical problem. The background track to the song she was "singing" started skipping so Brit had to turn her head away from the audience and just dance around while it was being fixed. Yeah, turning your head is a great idea, I bet no on caught on. According to People, despite the glitch, she remained in 'good spirits' during the short performance shouting out "I love you, Orlando. Thank you so much for being here. You're awesome. I love you!" and blew a kiss. I have to say that I really don't understand the lip-sync stuff. If she is doing a mini tour with mini shows, why not just sing? She obviously wants to see what kind of crowd she can still draw and test out her dancing skills, but she should probably test out the vocals as well!

Kate Hangs Out with Mischa

Kate Middleton got herself a new friend and it's American Mischa Barton! Seems strange to me, kind of odd couplish. The two were seen out at a London nightclub, Boujis. You can see the photo here. Kate looked great as always in a black and white dress. Mischa looked.....interesting as always in a white top/black skirt combo. The shirt was cut down to her waist and has some strange ruffle-like detail on it. She really has strange fashion sense.

Shoes!! Shoes!!

We haven't had a style on a budget post for ages, so I thought I'd share my shoes that I found yesterday!!
These cute cork wedges were on sale at Payless for $16.99. I couldn't believe it! And they are comfortable! Cork is all the rage at the moment, so this is a great way to embrace the trend without spending a lot of money!!

Is it a Bird? Is it a Plane? .....

No... It's Jerry Seinfeld, flying over Cannes in full bee costume to promote his new film "Bee Movie".

"What I hate is any kind of movie promotion that smacks of desperation," Seinfeld deadpanned before his great leap

Seinfeld and Chris Rock are in Cannes to promote the animated "Bee Movie" and have had this stunt planned for ages!!

Worst Earrings Ever

Even though we are a Jessica Simpson free zone, I have to point out these hideous, ridiculous earrings that Jessica Simpson wore out last night. They are so huge they take over everything.
I'm Not Obsessed has the pictures.

And while we are at it - why can't Britney put her shoes on properly?

Posh's Life on Film

The reality show that is Posh's life has actually started filming, and now the crew of her reality show are competing with the paparazzi for a close up of Victoria Beckham. Yesterday, Posh went grocery shopping. This show is going to be riveting. I just know it. I hope they film lots of it in her new house. I want to get a better look inside.

I'm also curious to find out exactly what it is she does all day long. Mia and I will definitely be watching, and recapping!!

Tiger's Baby-Momma

Check out Elin Woods at the Tournament Players Championship! She is looking very pregnant these days although still adorable of course. She is expecting her first baby with hubby Tiger Woods this summer. I actually feel kind of sorry for them because you just know they are going to be hounded like mad once that baby comes!


Rainbow Girl

Wow. That's a lot of color. Her body looks fantastic, but I'm not all that sure about the dress. Tone it down a bit Linds! Speaking of Lindsay, did anyone catch her on Martha Stewart the other day? Talk about having the personality of a door knob. Martha was giving her all kinds of crap about going out every night and kept calling her a 'party girl' which seemed to offend Ms Lohan but hey, if the shoe fits.

Kathy Griffin is Looking for a Husband

Kathy Griffin is looking for a new husband on her reality show "My Life On the D-List" . She has narrowed down the field to Larry Birkhead, Sanjaya, K-Fed, Prince William and Mario Lopez. She needs to get off the D-List, so she looking for a match made in the media!

You can vote here for the partner you think would get Kathy off the D-List. You can even chosea joint name a la "Brangelina". If she married Larry Birkhead, they could be "Griffhead".

Kathy says of Larry:

"Perfect guy for me, except I don't like kids, so we'll have to give little baby Abby-Lu to Virgie who is clearly an excellent parent. I promise to give the exclusive of our first kiss to OK! magazine for a cool million dollars. However, I do not want to return to the Bahamas with him for various trials, as my hair will frizz."

You can read the rest of her thoughts on her potential suitor here.

Mia and I are big Kathy Griffin fans! The new season of My Life on the D-List stars on June 5 at 10:00pm eastern, with the lead in "Kathy Griffin: Everybody Can Suck It" at 9:00pm.

We can't wait!!

Oops - Bad Call America.

Melinda Doolittle is out of the running to be America's next Idol. This is not a complete shock, as her personality is a little bit flat, even though her voice is spectacular.

So, that leaves Jordin Sparks and Blake Lewis in the finale. I can hardly stand it. I think this means that Blake will win the whole thing. Jordin is just a bit too inconsistent and young. And Blake has his vast army of fans and his sobbing father on his side. (After last night's visits home, don't you find it a bit weird a grown man calling his father Daddy?)

Melinda took the rejection well, no sobbing on stage . My Tivo cut out before I could hear what Simon had to say about the whole situation, so if anyone heard it, please tell me!

The only highlight of the evening for me was Jackie Collins in the audience!! Maybe she's writing a novel about tacky reality shows?

Brace yourselves for next weeks saccharine and lengthy offerings from Idol!!
