I'm thrilled to let you guys know that I am planning to re-launch soon. Right now a new site is being created to deliver you gossip and some fun new additions! I'm going to kick it off with an End of the Summer Giveaway that will include some of my favorite products. LOTS of good things!

I have so many things to talk about with you guys. Can you believe I haven't weighed in on MJ's passing? What's the summer without Big Brother chatter?! I'm still obsessed with that damn show. TEAM JEFF!

I spent last weekend in Chicago for Lollapalooza. AMAZING. Amazing in a cabana! How will I ever do Lolla any other way again? We had wonderful hosts in AOL and thoroughly enjoyed the private bar, food, table/chairs and air-conditioned bathrooms! Seriously...nicer than my bathroom at home.

I've missed bringing you my version of the dish and I'm hoping that you've missed me. It's been a gorgeous summer but I'm ready to get back to work!


PS: I was randomly looking at my last Celebrity Boyfriends List. Check it out! I still like it - but maybe time for some new blood?

Drew Barrymore & Justin Long to Cohabitate?

In Touch is reporting that Drew Barrymore and Justin Long have been house hunting together.

“Drew wants to live with Justin in a sort of trial marriage, so that’s why she’s looking for a new home,” a source told In Touch Weekly magazine.

“They are together, but they want everyone to think they’re just friends now. They’re so close, Drew even wears his clothes out during the day.”

And, this is what I think about THAT:

Rihanna Snuggling With New Guy

According to Page Six, Rihanna was spotted canoodling with Canadian rapper Aubrey "Drake" Graham at Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge in NYC. Sources say Rihanna was "drinking whiskey and apple juice and making out with him all night. They were really cute together."

Sherri Shepherd Not Juggling So Well

Yesterday on The View, Sherri Shepherd gleefully announced that her lifelong dream of having her own sitcom had come true. Lifetime picked up her semi-autobiographical show titled, "Sherri." According to Lifetime publicity the show is meant to focus around a woman "successfully juggling being a single mom, paralegal and actress." While Shepherd's co-hosts certainly seemed happy for Shepherd, tongues are wagging behind the scenes.

One insider at "The View" claims the focus of the show is interesting given Shepherd is pretty lousy at "juggling" her current duties, which include a recurring role as Tracy Morgan's wife on "30 Rock."

"She's never well-prepared for our show," said the source. "All she does is show up ... and giggle and make silly or innocuous comments."

New Couple: Cameron Diaz & Adam Levine

Quite frankly, I wanted to ignore this. But since the rumors are still swirling and seem to be gathering steam, I feel it's my duty to tell you that it looks like Cameron Diaz and Adam Levine (Maroon 5) might be dating.

The Chicago Sun Times is reporting that Diaz dumped model Paul Sculfor when she learned that Levine was available -- a guy she's had a secret crush on for a long time.


And, according to the Sun Times, Diaz has already has introduced Levine to her mother, Billie Early Diaz, who gave Cameron a big thumb's up after brunching with Levine on Sunday at Hollywood's famed Chateau Marmont.

Cam's ex Sculfor is reportedly devastated over the split. He's telling friends he can't believe that Cameron let him go, thinking everything was "terrific" between them.

Oh, and for the record - this is the second time Cam has gotten JESSICA SIMPSON's sloppy seconds (first was John Mayer).

American Idol Finale Recap


Adam - First song of the night, "Mad World." Watching him reprise this performance (one of the strongest of the season) makes me wonder if it's even a contest at this point.

(What is Anthony Hopkins doing in the audience and why is he so old??? Is it me or does Paula look pretty tonight?!)

Kris - I was really hoping that Kris would do "Falling Slowly," but showcasing his piano playing with "Aint No Sunshine" is a smart move. And I correct my statment from above: GAME ON. Kris did an awesome job!

Adam - Hm. The judges loved it but I didn't LOVE it. I liked it.

Kris - I really don't love "What's Going On," but Kris did an ok job with it.

Adam - Ugh, I really do always hate the song that will be the winner's first single. (Well, except Kelly Clarkson's) Adam's vocals are great. The song blows. Unless Kris does something totally unexpected, I think it's safe to assume that Adam will rightly be this year's Idol.

Kris - I'm "feeling" Kris' rendition of this song but I just don't know if he can win. The judges have all but crowned Adam at this point and I love Adam, too.

My vote for the winner of this year's American Idol is ADAM LAMBERT!

AI Finale Tonight + Adam's Cute Boyfriend

Helloooo Adam Lambert's boyfriend! How cute is he?!

I'm really excited for the AI Finale tonight. Apparently it will break down like this:

1. Adam and Kris will each reprise a song from this season. Adam is expected to do "Mad Love" and Kris will perform "Falling Slowly" again. Both great choices.

2. Next will be Simon Fuller's choice (he's a producer)

3. Finally, leaving the worst for last, it will be each contestant singing their "first single." They'll each be singing a different song and they'll be allowed to rearrange the song but can't play instruments.

I'll post my comments from the show first thing in the morning. I'd LOVE to hear yours, as well!

Gwyneth and Scarlett Fueding?

Out with the old, in with the new? Set-side rumors from the Iron Man 2 set are buzzing that the films female leads, Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson, are hatin' on eachother.

“Gwyneth has become very frustrated with Scarlett,” a source told British newspaper The Sun. “They come from different worlds and have completely different styles.

“Gwyneth has found Scarlett very demanding of the attention of the crew. It’s not a happy set.”

“Gwyneth and Scarlett have never been particularly close,” the insider added. “Gwyneth was looking forward to working with Emily Blunt, who was originally in line for the part, but it ended up being Scarlett.

“Gwyneth’s had to live with that and she has been very professional, but she and Scarlett haven’t developed a friendship on the shoot, which is almost at the half way point.

“In fact, it’s quite the opposite.”

Dolly Helps Jessica Simpson

Looks like Jessica Simpson might have a fairy godmother in the form of Dolly Parton. The National Enquirer is reporting that Parton has made Simpson, who was recently dumped from her country label, quite an offer - she has offered to bankroll Jess’ second country record on her label, Dolly Records.

“Dolly sees a lot of herself in Jessica. Her personal life has been the focal point of a lot of unwanted attention, and like Jessica, she’s had to battle her own doubts and demons,” an insider told American tabloid the National Enquirer.

“But Dolly is a pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps kind of gal, and she’s tried to instill some of that in Jessica.

“Jessica adores Dolly and trusts her completely. She says she’s ready to roll up her sleeves again, and she certainly wants success. But she doesn’t always seem willing to put in the hard work to make it happen. She would blow off tour rehearsals to hang out with [boyfriend] Tony Romo.

“Dolly is giving Jess a second chance. But if Jess is to succeed, ultimately she’s the one who has to make it happen.”

Going Strong: Amber Tamblyn & David Cross

I reported a year ago that Amber Tamblyn and David Cross were a couple and it looks like they're still going strong! Sources report that the couple were spotted making out at East Village bar 2A last Thursday night.

Friends Support Farrah

Farrah Fawcett's friends showed up to the premier of "Farrah's Story." Dick Van Patten was sporting a big bandage on his head. He said he'd had cancerous tissue removed.

I remember Van Patten as Tom Bradford, the dad from the 70's and 80's family show, Eight Is Enough, which used to air right before Charlie's Angels.

And I hate to do this...but....that's your boyfriend.

Casting Sinatra Biopic

Awhile back we were casting the Steve McQueen biopic. But now that Martin Scorsese has signed on to direct the Frank Sinatra biopic, I think this casting call is the more interesting one. Word on the street is that the front-runners areLeonardo DiCaprio, Harry Connick Jr and Justin Timberlake.

• While DiCaprio is not a singer, that may not be as much of an issue, since Scorsese and the Sinatra family favor using Frank's own singing in the film.

• Also key to the project were family concerns about how Sinatra's reported ties to the Mafia would be recounted.

• The working script by ''Field of Dreams'' writer Phil Alden Robinson does include a Chicago scene -- so we might see some filming here, though the bulk of the picture will be shot in New York, New Jersey, California and Vegas.

• It's also expected that Scorsese will incorporate material from his long-stalled film about Sinatra pal and fellow ''Rat Pack'' member Dean Martin into the Sinatra movie.

• Word has it, Scorsese is looking at telling Sinatra's story in a non-traditional way -- with hints it might look something like Todd Haynes' 2007 Bob Dylan biopic, ''I'm Not There.'' Though unlike the Dylan film, which cast six actors to play the music legend, Scorsese has made it clear he will go with one actor to play the Chairman of the Board.

I like Leo for it. Who do YOU like?

EDITED TO ADD: Perez is reporting that Johnny Depp is Universal's first choice to play Ol' Blue Eyes. If Depp signs on to this project it will be his first collaboration with Martin Scorsese. VERY exciting!

Angelina: Will She or Won't She?

The same sources that are snitching that there's trouble for the Jolie-Pitts are saying that there's quite a battle going on over whether or not Angelina will support Brad in Cannes.

“Angelina does not want to go,” a source in Pitt’s camp told IUC. “Brad told her if she does not go to Cannes it will cause him huge problems and will outshine the promo for his new Tarantino film. He threatened to do everything in his power to ruin her if she does not cooperate.”

My guess is that she'll be there. If she's NOT, well, I think we've got our answer to whether or not there is trouble in paradise.

Meanwhile, a source on the set of "Salt," which Jolie is filming now reportedly heard Angelina talking with a friend. She said, “I’m a total mess. I’m lonely and fucked up. I miss Jonny and Billy Bob. They’re my closest friends. I feel like there’s no one I can trust except them. Everyone here is out to get me.”

Why does it always go back to the exes? Brad back with Jennifer, Angie pining for Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob. For me this is when the stories start to smell fishy.

For now we're just going to have to wait and see how Cannes shapes up!

Kelly Clarkson Blows Up

Wow! This picture was taken of Kelly Clarkson over the weekend. Eeek. She's not looking great and is MUCH heavier than she was when I saw her at Clive Davis' Pre-Grammy party.

American Idol Final 3 Recap

Danny - I don't mind Paula's song choice for Danny, but he's really butchering it. It also showcases his embarrassing dance moves. Randy thinks it's dope, Kara is right on about the dancing and the forgetability factor, who cares what Paula thinks and drumroll to Simon - he's kind of wishy washy on it.

Kris - Love that he's playing the piano. I worry that the song is too recently popular for him be original with it. But it's ok.

Adam - the first few notes were better than either of the songs we just heard. I think the arragement is just so-so, but he's so good it doesn't really matter.

Danny - Ugh. I'm just so ready for him to go. Is he going to sing this, get teary-eyed and get the sympathy votes? I think this is a boring song choice for a guy I've become really bored with. That said, it was much better than the first song and probably one of his best performances.

Kris - Wow! What a great song choice!! Love this song and I'm so excited to see how he does. Wow - he's doing a really good job, I think. He could have a hit record with this!

Adam - I absolutely hate it! I'm getting a little sick of the screaming. Love Adam but could have done with a little less screetch.

I am PRAYING Danny goes home this week and we have a Kris vs. Adam final!

Russell Brand Waddles

Damn you, Lainey!!

Russell Brand is a guilty pleasure of mine. He's been on my Celebrity Boyfriends List for awhile now. Until this morning. You see, while Russell has held the #5 spot for a few months now - there was something wrong and I couldn't quite put my finger on it. Until today.

In her column today, Lainey writes, "It’s not that he’s wearing leggings. I can handle the leggings.

It’s the way his legs are shaped. The thighs turn inward, then the calves separate. The result is a waddle. I don’t care how funny his sh-t is, if a man waddles, there is no quiver."

Damnit. She's so right. Now I have to do some soul searching to see if I can handle the waddle.

Could you?

More Crazy Angie Accusations


I've been following Ian Halperin's reporting of the alleged Jolie-Pitt breakdown. I really have NO idea if anything he's reporting is based on any truth, but it's so trashy and scandalous and crazy that I can't stop reading! Today he is reporting that an "artist friend" of Jolie's told him that Angie told her that she thinks she and her adopted sons, Pax and Maddox, would "make beautiful babies with them.”

Apparently this "friend" told Halperin that Jolie MIGHT have been kidding (ya think?) now the "friend" is worried that Jolie might "attempt one day to have kids with some of her children."

Angelina's friend goes on to explain that Jolie does not believe incest is taboo and thinks the actress will eventually move to a country where it’s legal. WHAT?! The friend thinks that because incest is banned, it is more attractive to Jolie.

I think this whole story is total crap. However, I'm starting to wonder if the rumors about troubles in the relationship are true. They've been swirling for a few weeks with no reaction. Now, it could be that Brad and Angie are rising above the gossip - but that's not their usual reaction. Where are our family pics??! Holy Shiloh, I hope things are ok!

Rihanna Freaking Over Nude Pics

Have you heard the Rihanna song that was leaked on the internet? It's a song called "Silly Boy" and it also features Lady GaGa. It has been getting alot of mention on gossip sites, but it was already on YouTube a month ago. Regardless, there's lots of speculation that the song is about Chris Brown. It's a very "girl power" song. Totally what she needed.

Poor Rihanna had just stepped back into the public eye attending several functions last week, including her great showing at The Costume Gala last Monday, then she ended the week with nude photos being released. She's said to be "freaking out" over them. I won't even go into the tired rant about "whyyyyy do people keep taking naked pics of themselves on their cell phones" and just say - I don't think they're that bad. In fact, I think she looks really hot in them! I mean, I can understand what she's embarrassed - but Rihanna is the "Good Girl Gone Bad." As such, I don't think the pics will affect her career-wise.

She's in Hawaii to escape the scrutiny.

“She’s recording her new album and wants to shut herself in the studio away from the world for a few days.”

Rihanna’s record label Island Def Jam demanded that the photos be removed because they “violate the artist’s rights”. But her lawyers have not denied that the photos are genuine.

Happy Mother's Day!

I know alot of moms read my blog and I wanted to wish you a Happy Mother's Day! Now that I'm a mom, I love this holiday. My older son,Jake, had a big shindig at his preschool to celebrate Mother's Day. Check out this portrait he painted of me. I TOTALLY dig the necklace and earrings!
Jake's teacher had each of the kids answer these questions. Jake said that I was 49 years old. WHAT?!?! I've even been practicing with him on saying 34!
He thinks I look best when I wear my clothes and cook?! He knows I don't cook. LOL

Happy Mother's Day to MY mom. She's my best friend and I love her.


Sean Penn Romancing Natalie Portman?

The quesionably reliable STAR Magazine is reporting that Sean Penn and Natalie Portman are having an affair and this is what prompted his divorce papers to be filed. According to STAR:

Weeks after Star broke the news that Sean Penn was seen making out with Natalie Portman, the Oscar winner filed for separation from his wife Robin Wright Penn. Now Star has learned that Sean, 48, and Natalie, 27, are still seeing each other!

"She stimulates him in ways no other person has, mentally or professionally," says a source. "There's a lot more there with Natalie than any of the other girls Sean's been with."

It was Sean's indiscretion with Natalie that encouraged Robin, 43, to stop turning a blind eye to his philandering. "She was furious he was messing around with such a young star," says an insider.

As Star reported, Sean and Natalie were seen in a passionate embrace following dinner — during which they were "constantly touching each other" — at Sunset Tower Hotel's Tower Bar on March 17.

"They went to a bank of elevators that only goes to the spa or to private rooms," an eyewitness told Star at the time. "They came back about 45 minutes later, and that's when I saw them making out."

I hate to see Sean and Robin's marriage end - but it never seemed like the healthiest of relationships, did it? All the breaking up and making up. Very passionate, I'm sure. Given their track record, I won't be surprised if they get back together.

Adultery/cheating aside....what do you think about Natalie Portman and Sean Penn as a couple?!

Ok, normally I wouldn't pass along naked pictures of someone. But these pics of Rihanna aren't very graphic and I'm amazed by her body. That butt! Are you kidding me?!?! Click here to see the pics at

Leighton Meester Sings

Did you see Leighton Meester at The Costume Institute Gala at the Met this week? I thought she looked GREAT. A little avante garde for sure, but that's what the Costume Gala is all about!
It's been a good week for Leighton because in addition to her good showing at The costume Gala, Ryan Seacrest world premiered Cobra Starship's highly anticipated new single "Good Girls Go Bad" on his radio show Friday. The song features Meester and was co-written by American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi.

Click here to hear it!

I like it and I think she sounds good. Totally sounds like a summer song!

Brad Pitt in Rehab?

According to the seedier gossips out there, things with the Jolie-Pitt's is GRIM! Not only have they been breaking up, but there are questions about the paternity and even maternity of twins Vivienne & Knox! Now these same sources are saying that Brad Pitt is in rehab.

According to a close friend of the 45-year-old A-lister, Pitt is trying to get himself free of alcohol dependency as a way to pry himself loose from Angelina Jolie. The friend said Jolie has been determined the past couple of years of throwing Pitt’s life into complete confusion. “Brad’s been very stressed out for months,” says the source.

Things have not been going very well for him. He needs a change and a fresh start. If he didn’t seek the counselling he might have died, that’s how bad it’s been.” The friend said the program Pitt enrolled in is teaching him about harm reduction, prevention and how to lead a life free from alcohol abuse. “He’s doing well above the required threshold for recovery,” the friend added. “He’ll be fine. He’s a great person and great father. He’s turned to his family and an old friend for support. Finally, he got a big wake up call that was long overdue.”

Brad has talked about his drinking and how it affects him. Back in October of 2007 he said, He said: "It's not easy to be a good father when you've had a few drinks.

"About a year ago I'd had a couple of beers and my daughter Zahara had this piece of ice that had been dropped on the floor, and she was putting it in her mouth and began to choke on it, and that was it.

"You have to be absolutely on top of every situation. The other s**t doesn't work anymore. When they wake up in the middle of the night you have to be there.

"And you can't deal with children when you have a hangover - that's just a misery!"

What do you think? Is Brad in rehab battling his demons (aka Angie)? Personally, I don't buy it. But....ya never know.....

Prognosis For Fawcett Grim

It's so sad about Farrah Fawcett, isn't it? Cancer on top of having to live with Ryan O'Neal and their creepy kid, Redmond. *shudder* But...have you noticed how they ALWAYS say "anal" cancer. I guess people would specify breast cancer or prostrate or lung or whatever, but isn't awful that after years of living with a couple of cancerous assholes, she'd die from it literally?

It's now being widely reported that Farrah won't be with us much longer. According to she can drink only a little liquid and can’t keep food down.

It's also being reported that Fawcett's 91 year old father is making the trip to California to say his goodbye's.

So sad. And isn't it too bad that her longtime partner and son couldn't get their shit together to at least allow her to pass in peace.

Mel's Girlfriend Knocked Up?

I know this totally dates me, but I loooved the movie "Tequila Sunrise." There was NO ONE hotter than Mel Gibson in 1988.

But now when I see the trailer I remember how stunning Michelle Pfieffer was in 1988 and I think "Why didn't I notice how hot Kurt Russell is?!" When I look at Mel in that clip all I see is a creepy, anti-semetic, uber-religious drunk.
Here's creepy Mel with his girlfriend, Oksana. The National Enquirer is reporting that Oksana is pregnant with Mel's baby.

“In late April, Mel gathered his children at the family home in Malibu and broke the news that Oksana is pregnant, and he expects them to accept the baby as a new sibling,” an insider said.

“They are quite upset,” the source revealed. “Even though Mel assured them the pregnancy was unplanned, they’re furious with him and say they’re going to take steps to protect their inheritance, which they feel is in jeopardy.”
