Two C list pregnancies to report:
Tori Spelling (pregnant with some Canadian actor's, who I've never heard of, baby) The little tart was doing him while still newly married (and now divorced). I think her silicone is leaking, but hope its not too serious since I'm longing for a 90210 reunion (excluding the dweeb that Andrea married, that story line was WEAK!) Donna Martin Graduate!
Stop right now, thankyou very much... Spice Girls drop-out geri Halliwell is reportedly preggers too. I hope Becks is spreading his seed to all the Spice Girls, goodness knows we could use a few more guys like him in this world...gay and hot!

And I told D this 3 days ago after looking through the British version of OK but will tell you now, Nicole Kidman is engaged to Keith Urban, he's much shorter than her, but aside from that I approve (I think my blessing will make her happy ;-)

Liz Smith talks to Madonna about her album reaching #1 all over the world: “It was my husband, Guy, who told me the album was No. 1 in America. I was shocked, stunned, happy. I said, 'We have to celebrate.' So we opened a bottle of champagne — not something I usually do, though I probably should do more of that — I had a glass, and then I sat and cried for 20 minutes. Really. So many conflicting emotions, but basically tears of joy. Don't let anybody tell you commercial success doesn't matter." M ("everybody calls me M now, I never hear my own name!") is busy planning her next video for the second single, "Sorry." She says, "I want it to be a sequel to the 'Hung Up' video — what happens after she dances the night away because her boyfriend is so unavailable." And M is thinking about her "Confessions" concert tour, which might include smaller venues "where I can hear myself singing; I can see the faces!" Madonna also wants to build a film around her current troupe of dancers, which includes the phenomenally talented Cloud and Hypnosis. "They are not just dancers. They're filmmakers and artists. Creative cyclones. I adore them." We spoke of broken bones — I recently shattered a wrist, she quite a few more — and she said it was terribly difficult coming back from that, to dance again. "Your 46th comeback!" I joked. She laughed, "Yes, I've lost track of how many times I've been written off." She paused. "Maybe that's the reason I cried when I heard about the record. Here's a big scoop. We're human, too."

Gwyneth your pregnant, I see it, the world sees it, just come out with the news already. Nice of you to attend the U.K. screening of Madonna’s new doc “I’m Going to Tell You a Secret”. Suppose the morning sickness is now long gone since you’re due any day ;-)

Donald Trump is moving "The Apprentice" to SoCal for Season 6, which will likely air in fall 2006. "Donald has so many recent West Coast projects, that it made perfect sense to change locations and along with it change the flavor of the weekly tasks," says Mark Burnett, in a statement.

Simon Cowell signs on for five more "Idol" seasons. Now that Cowell and "Idol" producer Simon Fuller have settled their legal battle, Fox has announced that the "Idol" franchise will likely be around for up to six more years.

Oh No!!! According to the latest US Weekly, Ryan Phillipe ate at Toba, which is directly across the road from us, on November 17th! Arghhhh. How irritating to know we were so close but yet so far from finally getting our chance to do him ;-) Arghhhh!

It's the end of the road for three freshman series: ABC's "Hot Properties," CBS' "Threshold" and Fox's "Reunion."

Andrew Lloyd Webber plans "Sound of Music" reality show. The famous composer is using the "Idol" format to search for the next Maria, who will be cast in the new stage version of "The Sound of Music" in London.

"Yes, he really is dead," says Marcia Cross. This week's "Desperate Housewives" episode was on everbody's mind last night at a celebration in Cross' honor. "It was his time," she says. "Roger (Bart) is a wonderful actor, but how long could George remain a serial killer? His days were numbered."

Have you heard of Hotwire.com? Darren and I are going to London and Paris in May and being the anal/ organized person that I am, I've already started booking hotels etc... What I generally do is find the best rate at the best place and book it, and then keep checking for even better rates and even better hotels until we leave. It’s a bit neurotic I agree, but that's me. So, the hotel booked for Paris is everything I could ever hope for, a tad pricey, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. So I thought for London I'd try this Hotwire place. They tell you the price and the star rating of the hotel, and the specific area, but don't reveal the name until after you've made your non-refundable non-negotiable reservation. I booked what was supposedly a 4 star hotel yesterday, without telling Darren... and the place they had us staying at was here, I was devastated. I had to tell D so he could try to get us out what could have potentially ruin the trip for me. Thankfully, whatever it was he said worked, and they refunded the money. I was in trouble though and was lectured the whole way home last night. Poor me, just trying to be nice and save us some cash (so I could spend it elsewhere ;-)

Sundance 2006

Sundance Film Fest 2006 complete line-up has been announced (I'm currently working Darren to take me for my 30th in '07) Complete List

Darren hates this store and I torture him by always wanting to go in...Restoration hardware Friends and Family Event
:

Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie will take "The Simple Life" to E! Entertainment Television in a new format that allows them to have nothing to do with each other. Fox had declined to air a fourth season of the one-time reality hit, but E! said it would show 10 new episodes. Slutty Paris and thin as me Nicole will take turns playing "wife" by running households, with the family involved each week deciding which of the two did a better job. The fourth season will start airing next spring.

That sneaky Prison Break ending the season with a cliffhanger...why oh why!?! The good news is that the ad said it would return in march (so while a bit of a wait not as long as first expected).

In 1 year and 32 days I'll be...gasp...30!!! I can't believe it, and I know you can't either...Thank God for my discovery of La Prarie for Men moisturizer. Anyhow... Eva Pigford, America's Next Top Model Cycle 3 winner, has sent these unusal invitations out to celebrate her birthday and has given me some wonderful ideas about what I should be considering ... hmm..

And...I guess I'll have to ad one more thing to my list of to-do's when I visit NYC in 3 more sleeps ;-) It seems gay men might be picking up more than just Cole Haan loafers at the Time Warner Center — especially in the third-floor restroom. Ryan Haase, who works nearby, recently detected an “air of ill repute” when he saw several men at the urinals. “They all turned and looked at me almost in unison,” he says. “I went to wash my hands. No one had moved.”

Monday, November 28, 2005

The countdown begins...in 4 sleeps I'll be in NYC (I'll fill you in later in the week about what I have planned while there...I'll give you a few teasers for now, all separate events, Ian Somerhalder, Rosie 'O, and Regis and Kelly)

David Arquette and Courteney Cox have teamed with writer-producer Jeremy Stevens for a comedy project to star Arquette as a reluctant PI. The untitled show has been picked up by ABC with a script commitment.

Tonight is the "Fall finale" for Prison Break...please don't let it be a cliffhanger!

According to Perez, Kathy Griffin and her chubby hubby are back together.

US Thanksgiving has really slowed down the gossip, so this is the only juiciness I could get a hold of. Oh regarding those really lame American Music Awards the other night...when the show opened with the disco balls I thought to myself, "Self, could it be that Madonna is making a special appearance that even I don't know about, because everyone knows that Madonna owns the rights to use disco balls while promoting the fab Confessions on a Dancefloor?"...but much to my dismay, when the ball turned around it didn't reveal Madge in all her toned glory, but Mariah the pariah!!! (also this time next week I'll be in NYC...woohoo)

Even though I'm not an Elton John fan...at all...the little troll has announced that he will finally marry his longtime partner, David Furnish, on December 21, the first day civil partnerships of the Gays will be recognized in England.

Jude and Sienna and their public squabble (from superficial): A source said that "They were fighting on the corner of Spring and Broadway, [screaming] [bleep] this and [bleep] that and [bleep]hole and bitch . . . Jude got so [bleep]ed off, he told her one last time to [bleep] off and then he stormed off. He left poor Sienna standing on the corner in the rain waiting for him to turn back around, but he did not."

Well, it's official: "Alias" is leaving the airwaves in May, as expected, capping off five seasons of the most improbable storylines on TV. "We owe both the storytellers and the fans a send-off worthy of a show that has been such a big part of the pop culture vernacular," says ABC entertainment chief Stephen McPherson. "Alias" writers, in the meantime, plan to "wrap up the story of Sydney Bristow in a surprising and, we think, thrilling way," according to exec producer Jeff Pinkner.

And they're done

Finally Nick and Jessica come clean:
"After three years of marriage, and careful thought and consideration, we have decided to part ways," they said in a joint statement released by their publicists. "This is the mutual decision of two people with an enormous amount of respect and admiration for each other."
Calls seeking further comment from publicists Meredith O' Sullivan and Rob Shuter were not immediately returned early Thursday.
The couple have been dogged by rumors that their marriage was in trouble -- Us Weekly reported that they split in an Oct. 17 issue -- but Simpson, 25, and Lachey, 32, brushed the speculation aside and insisted they were still together.
In the December-January issue of Teen People, which went on newsstands earlier this month, Simpson denied rumors that the marriage was kaput.
"Hopefully mine and Nick's story will continue for the rest of our lives, like what we vowed, through sickness and in health," said Simpson, who famously professed that she remained a virgin until she got married.

Tonight I saw a play...and can someone out there please explain to me...Why or How did a play about a wife confronting her husband about his adulterous affair with a goat ever get produced (and win Tony's)? The Goat or, Who is Sylvia? is by far the most odd "thing" I've ever seen in my entire 28 years. I would like to take credit for the best line of the evening, turning to Heather and Warren, after the actors had taken their final bow and exited stage left, and saying "That was Baaaaaad".

"Prison Break" returning in February?
Creator and executive producer Paul Scheuring says a delay till May is looking less and less likely. "What I understand is that there are three different models under consideration," he explains. "One of them has us coming back in late January or early February. The second one has us coming back later in February. The third one is (returning in) May. Nobody knows which it will be. My initial first reading of the tea leaves -- I thought it would be May. But it seems in the last two weeks, the needle has been slowly swinging back toward an earlier return."

Madonna is No. 1 with an amazing 74,000 units(the second best debut this year after Coldplay's X&Y) To put things in perspective, based on population, this would be comparable to an Artist selling almost 750 000 units in the U.S. which is friggin HUGE!)

Daddy, When I grow up I want corn-rows just like you!

Ricky Martin gives a very interesting interview:
"I'm open to everything," Martin says. "There are moments for soft, gentle sex. And there are moments for a good spank in the butt." Asked about his last one-night stand, he says, "We met, we did it, we left. I don't know if we're going to meet again." What would an ex-lover say about him? "That I'm the love of their life!" says Martin, who hedges his pronouns before becoming more gender-specific. "I'm the best man that they've ever had, a gentleman who treated them like a lady." Lastly, the latin perv says "I love giving the golden shower. I've done it before in the shower. It's like so sexy, you know, the temperature of your body and the shower water is very different."

Christina Aguilera is a married woman...and shows women everywhere what not to look like on their wedding day

Confessions On A Dancefloor has entered the Billboard charts in the #1 spot (there were worries that Carrie Underwood would beat her, but thanks to me and my 6 purchases, 4 cd's and 2 from Itunes (ITunes by the way is the only place where you can get either the full mix or the individual tracks) Madge wins (here's a sweet little pic of her performing in London at G.A.Y on Saturday.

David Letterman will finally see his wish realized on Thursday, Dec. 1, when Oprah Winfrey makes her first "Late Show" appearance. Her couch time with Letterman coincides with the opening of a Broadway musical based on "The Color Purple" that Winfrey is producing.

I love love love Elizabeth Berkley. I can't really explain why, but just know that I do. So anytime I see her name somewhere I'll be compelled to share the news: Her latest role comes Tuesday (Nov. 22) on CBS' first-year drama "Threshold."

The off the shoulder sweater girl, Jennifer Beals, (also the "L Word"/"Flashdance" star) and her husband Ken L. Dixon are the proud new parents of a baby girl, reports People.

It's true that I never saw RENT the way it was meant to be seen, live on stage, but last night I saw the movie version and I LOVED IT! I often think it's not right to compare movies to books, plays, and whatever because they're each their own being to some extent.
Anyhow, I loved it and so did the Hollywood Reporter saying ""Rent is one of the best film musicals in years -- exuberant, sexy and life affirming in equal measure."

OMG...please let this be better than Canadian Idol! "CHUM Television's Citytv is beginning the search for "Canada's Next Top Model", an exciting new Canadian reality series based on the enormously successful "America's Next Top Model". Recruitment for participants for "Canada's Next Top Model" begins today and ends Wednesday, December 21st, 2005. The show will premiere mid-May 06"

Can it be? My Jakey G is a nose picker!?!

A brief Simpson free hiatus for some good news… Jessica Simpson, as she was unceremoniously dumped by her publicist of the past two years, Brad Cafarelli. Cafarelli, who also represents Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson, was allegedly tired of dealing with Jessica’s creepily involved father, Joe Simpson — presumably, Cafarelli would rather devote his time to his clients that don’t need a constant father-figure.

Saturday night I hosted a little b-day spectacular for my bf's 31st, and I have to say it was Banana's (I still haven't quite figured out how to use that one, so assume that I'm using it in a positive context).
Highlights:
Patrick and Ben attempting to beat the Guinness book world record for the longest make-out session
The Hung Up dance-off with Jay. Judging by Robert and Tyler
A certain someone from L.A. touching my belt buckle
Darren (jokingly for the record) telling my sister that he liked it when I slap him in the face with a certain appendage
Not getting in trouble when I came clean that the cake cost $120 and that I put it on Visa
Joanne's skin feeling as soft as buttah
Heather's bartending skills
Clara and Amy's thesis on stale smelling sacs
Getting to drink the wine I've been saving for a special occasion because my brother-in-law opened it unbeknownst to me (it was lovely)
Telling Mary that throwing up was a good ab workout and then thanking God she said "No" when I asked her if she wanted to go to the emergency room because I didn't want to miss all the fun
And lastly not getting too drunk and being able to recall the whole nights events (a nice change)
Thanks to everyone for joining us and for being the best friends ever
Lowlight
The painful reminder of why I should be waxing certain places instead of shaving (razor burn is a beeyatch)

and for some Hollywood info...

Odd little law suit...Wife Swap contestant seeks $10 million in damages because show's producers swapped his wife with a gay man. "As a result of intentional infliction of mental distress he has incurred medical bills, public humiliation, embarrassment and undue grief. He seeks $5 million for that distress and punitive damages of $5 million."

Fergie from the Black-eyed peas claims to never having plastic surgery. I call her a liar. Josh Duhamel, do you really want to spend the rest of your life with someone so plastic? (or right, I saw you on Martha's show and you were such a loser, so of course the answer is yes...you're still hot though)

CM is having a sale on cashmere. While it may not be top of the line, cheap cashmere is still better than no cashmere if you ask me.

ABC.com has confirmed that they will air an interview with Madonna, this thursday night at 9pm EST, during a 2 hour special of Prime Time LIVE. During the interview you will see footage taken by video cameras that were given to Madonna and her family, to see what a typicial day in the life of Madonna is like.

It's pretty much a given that Anderson Cooper is a big MO, but I'm still up in the air about Ryan Seacrest. R.S. has been filling in for Larry King here and there and this little on-air exchange between the two is quite funny:
Cooper: That’s the biggest tie I’ve ever seen, by the way.
Seacrest: Yeah, you know, I don’t know. It’s bigger than my head, isn’t it?
Cooper: No, it works, it works for you. It just, you know, I just noticed it….
Seacrest: Look at the size of your… your bow’s tiny, mine’s huge.
Cooper: I’ve heard that often.

Everyone looked like crap at the xbox party in LA last night...except for my Joshy D. I'm thiking that most people showed up just for afree xbox (and some probably couldn't afford one and had to get their freebee while they could.

CONFESSIONS ON A DANCEFLOOR

If you didn't see me in my slightly altered state Friday night, then you missed my loud and proud recommendations that everone should purchase a copy of the new Madonna CD which comes out today, Tuesday November 15th (also Darren's b-day...how lucky!!!) I even told my lovely Cab driver, Mosbeeta, that he should buy one.
This really is an amazing CD (I managed to find a copy a couple weeks back online and have been listening to it non-stop) It's amazing to put on to get the night going, or even to work out to...it's getting RAVE reviews across the board...check out this weeks People Mag review (even stuck up reviewers like the New York Times, and the London Observer are giving it top marks). I'll be buying a few copies myself (also take note there are two versions, one that plays one song into the next like a complete mix beginning to end, and the other like a regular cd with proper start and end of every song)

In other news...Jakey G and Kirsten Dunst are still together and making out on the patio of some restaurant. Does he ever eat inside? Jeez.

Trashy Tara Reid is 30...but no nipple slip....however Keira Knightley pulled a Tara and revealed her boob at the Pride and Prejudice premiere...I won't post the picture because rumour has it some people read this at work. Anyway, there isn't much to see.

Kenny Chesney's says about the publicity he's been getting from the press since his quickie marriage to Renee Zellweger: "They've done nothing short of calling me gay and (Renee) a whore. None of those things are true. I'm pretty firm in my sexuality and my love for women."

While his nipples are still huge, I can't believe how much weight Jack Osborne has lost....crazy!!!

"Seinfeld" reunion on "Regis & Kelly"…Elaine, George, Jerry and Kramer will all appear on the special Nov. 23 edition to promote the latest set of DVDs.

Will Showtime save "Arrested Development"?..."There is an intriguing rumor of a suitor: Showtime," says Tim Goodman, noting that show creator Mitch Hurwitz apparently has been given the go-ahead to shop the sitcom around. "This idea actually makes sense," says Goodman. "Showtime has been making great strides in its programming department, but the audience is still lacking. A name series that might prompt die-hard fans (are there any other kind left for 'AD'?) to subscribe would be an enticing option.

In fashion news…Burberry has reinstated Kate Moss after dumping her a couple of months ago due to her teeny cocaine habit…and in NYC, the hottest item(s) at the moment is pretty much every piece in the H&M Stella McArtney line, stores were cleaned out almost as soon as the doors opened.

According to OUT magazine People's Sexiest Man might be..." Certainly the famously nude-and-drum-playing Matthew McConaughey never has fun with Craigslist either, though we were pleased to observe him a few years back late at night the lobby of a Milan hotel trying to score a three-way with a male buddy of his. Matty does like to have a good time, and what's wrong with that?. What this means to me is that I'll have to reconsider who my "One" is. If I get to have just "one" than I should at least pick someone where I have a shot, no matter how remote.

Today, at the Tim Horton's drive-through, I let someone in before me. When I pulled up to the window to pay, the cashier informed me that the person ahead (who I had let in) had paid for me. How sweet. Thanks Stranger!

I reluctantly saw Jan Arden at Massey Hall last night...and I have to say I think she put on a really great show...a bit of stand-up mixed in with an awesome voice. She has two more shows, toniht and tomorrow, and I suggest checking it out if you have some time to kill.

I like Sienna Miller's new haircut...very bold and highlights her gorgeous face....it's a shame that she's waisting it on the nanny-do'er Jude Law. Not only that, but he's sending her to do the dirty work of beating up papparzzi...will someone in her circle please tell her she's losing it?


Bye-Bye "Arrested Development." The FOX comedy has been shelved for the remainder of sweeps -- -- in favor of repeats of "Prison Break," which has performed better in the 8 p.m. Monday hour than "Arrested" this season. The network says the comedey will return Dec. 5, following the close of sweeps. Starting Monday (Nov. 14), the previous week's "Prison Break" will air at 8 p.m. ET, followed by a new episode at 9. That pattern will continue through Nov. 28, when the show has what FOX is calling its "fall finale." The remainder of the season will air sometime next year, although it hasn't been scheduled yet.

Marissa Cooper's lost "O.C." sister returns! Brian De Palma's stepdaughter, the fashion model Willa Holland, will take over the role of "Kaitlin Cooper," who's been gone for years. Now age 14, she'll return from boarding school with "a lot of attitude."

"Terminator" rises again as a TV series. Fox has OK'd "The Sarah Connor Chronicles," a pilot centered around Sarah Connor and her savior son, John.

Conan O'Brien a daddy again: Baby boy Beckett born last night

Warner Brothers has launched the official Superman Returns website.

Old news but still important to share...People magazine has named Matthew McConaughey its "Sexiest Man Alive."

I need this COAT Pronto!!!! Do I sense a group birthday present coming on?

I still made time last night to watch Top Model and Lost (I told you that you know who was going to die...plus Boone's hair looked disgusting. Has unemployment led him to not washing his hair!?!)

LV

So I went to the Louis Vuitton soiree last night and had a fantastic time. I've never seen the store so busy before. Generally there are just few people, but last night it was packed with a bunch or gorgeous Torontonians. It was a great event, plenty to see/hear/drool over. I chatted a wee bit with Kim Catrall's publicist who was SOOO nice, love her! I was so living in Mykeywood last night. They gave out these gorg prints, signed by the artist.Thanks Tammy! What a night!

Kiss Kiss, Man Man

In honor of Brokeback Mountain and Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, Radar Online ranks the best guy-on-guy onscreen kisses.

1. My Beautiful Launderette: Daniel Day-Lewis and Gordon Warneke
The two stars engage in a taboo-busting interracial romp set against the unlikely but oddly arousing backdrop of washers and dryers. The movie just happened to make the careers of Day-Lewis, director Stephen Frears, and screenwriter Hanif Kureishi. Coincidence? We don’t think so.
2. Y Tu Mamá También: Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna
After a steamy bit of dirty three-way dancing at a dusty Mexican beach bar, older woman Luisa deftly manipulates 17-year-olds Tenoch and Julio into the testosterone-only coupling they were driving toward all along.
3. Wilde: Jude Law and Stephen Fry
Sometimes the love that dare not speak its name just won’t shut up. Fry is predictably loquacious as Oscar Wilde, but the real surprise is Law, playing the lover who spurred Wilde’s imprisonment for homosexuality. His Bosie may be campy and petulant, but he’s just as convincing as Fry. And a hell of a lot cuter.
4. Before Night Falls: Javier Bardem and Andrea Di Stefano
Julian Schnabel’s biopic of Cuban writer Reynaldo Arenas is full of erotic couplings, but the moment that lingers is the first kiss between Arenas and his friend Pepe. The film has nowhere to go but down. And then down some more.
5. Velvet Goldmine: Ewan McGregor and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers
McGregor’s Curt Wild (read: Iggy Pop) and Rhys Meyers’s Brian Slade (that would be David Bowie to you and me) look pretty and are suitably ’70s glam as they find a saliva goldmine together. Rock on.
6. Kiss of the Spider Woman: William Hurt and Raul Julia
Jailed South American revolutionary Valentin (Julia) may seek escape by fantasizing about Brazilian bombshell Sonia Braga, but he finds solace, in the time-honored cellmate fashion, with the queeny Luis (Hurt).
7. My Own Private Idaho: Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix
Reeves’s rich boy Scotty and Phoenix’s narcoleptic hustler Mike, as the they lie in bed talking to cops, don’t exactly kiss, but Reeves spectacularly twiddles Phoenix’s nipples, which reminds us of the Jerry Seinfeld line about sex starting with the appearance of the nipple. Who are we to argue?
8. Maurice: Rupert Graves and James Wilby
Repressed prewar England is the setting for the oldest story in the world: Toff meets gardener. It’s hot because it’s illegal.
9. A Home at the End of the World: Colin Farrell and Dallas Roberts
Roberts keeps his glasses on while Farrell closes his eyes and thinks about filming a sex tape with a Playboy Playmate.
10. In & Out: Kevin Kline and Tom Selleck
After a fender bender, second-string TV reporter Peter Malloy (Selleck) plants a mind-bending long, slow wet one on the closeted Howard Brackett (Kline). Fortunately for Kline, Selleck had recently done away with that cheesy Magnum, P.I. ’stache.

I can't remember who, but someone said they wanted to get the scale that I have in my main bathroom. Well, good news...it's on sale big time. SCALE

Jennifer Aniston has been everywhere promoting her new stinker (so say the critics) Derailed. Her lips have been sealed when it comes to discussing the nosehair-wonder Vince Vaughn. I think that's a smart move...I don't know how many more times I can stand to see someone jump on a sofa.
Colin Farrel kisses men and makes my day

Page Kennedy, who plays a fugitive from the law on Desperate Housewives, was fired from the hit ABC drama for improper conduct, a series spokeswoman said Tuesday. Kennedy, who joined the show this season, was let go Friday after a "thorough investigation by the studio" of the allegations against him, publicist Janet Daily said. Desperate Housewives is produced by Touchstone Television, part of The Walt Disney Co. Details of the allegations were unavailable, Daily said. A call by The Associated Press to Kennedy's agent for comment wasn't immediately returned Tuesday. The alleged misconduct didn't involve another cast member, a source close to the production said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

CBS orders more "Survivor" for seasons 13 and 14

NBC grants "The Office" a full season

Nose Hair

I guess I shouldn't be that surprised...since apparently Brad Pitt has very poor grooming habits (except for the microdermabrasion to shrink the pock marks)...but I certainly hope Jennifer Aniston buys Vince at least one nose hair trimmer for x-mas. That shit is NASTY!
Survivor will return to Panama for Survivor 12, the third season to be filmed there
About one week ago today, on either Nov. 1 or Oct. 31, Survivor 12 began production. And the show is being filmed in a very familiar location: Panama.

Please take into consideration that when I was wearing my Kabbalah red string it was only for fun and because it was a free gift with purchase when I bought the lovely currant scented Kabbalh candle last year at Holts for 60% off. So, Madonna says "People like Paris Hilton come into a Kabbalah centre and buy a book or a band and that's it for them. It doesn't mean they study it. It's very hard to be a believer. I'm very serious about it."

From zap news...Chris Klein, whose five-year relationship with Katie Holmes ended just before her romance with Tom Cruise began, claims that the "Mission: Impossible" actor wasn't the cause of his breakup. "Her being with Tom has nothing to with her and I discontinuing our relationship," he says on Monday night's (Nov. 7) "Access Hollywood." "People move forward, people move on. It's what we do." The "Dawson's Creek" actress was once a devout Catholic and had been outspoken about remaining a virgin till marriage. Her premarital pregnancy is only fueling the gossip. "I hope that she's making decisions that are making her happy and that she doesn't have people in her life leading her astray from what she wants and what she believes," says Klein about her new faith.

LISTEN TO THE NEW MADONNA ALBUM NOW (LEGALLY)

Madonna's new album "Confessions On A Dancefloor" is now available to hear in its entirety on MTV's "The Leak".....Go now and check it out!!! CONFESSIONS

The "The Apprentice: Martha Stewart" finale will be broadcast live on Wednesday, December 21 from 8-10 pm ET/PT. The two-hour finale will feature the culmination of the final two tasks, a cast reunion and the live conference room hiring where the newest Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia employee will receive a $250,000 'apprenticeship' working alongside Stewart and her executives.

According to the Drudge report, interviews with Academy members reveal that, my favourite film of the year (so far), BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, has quietly become an award season frontrunner,"It could very well be the last film standing at this year's Oscars," a top Hollywood producer not associated with the film explained from Hollywood. "There was not a dry eye in the house at the screening at Telluride [Film Festival in Colorado]," says the producer, who asked not to be named out of respect for the cast and crew of the producer's own Oscar contender. "Watch it come out of the gate at the Golden Globes with super controversy." NEW YORK DAILY NEWS critic Jack Mathews predicts the gay cowboy movie, which takes place in Wyoming, may be "too much for red-state audiences, but it gives the liberal-leaning Academy a great chance to stick its thumb in conservatives' eyes." Director Ang Lee's movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger won the Golden Lion, the top prize at the Venice Film Festival earlier this fall.

Since the entire world thinks that he’s officially crazy, Tom Cruise is going to attempt to become the golden boy we all knew him to be before this whole Katie/ Scientology nuttiness. Tom Cruise has hired veteran publicist and Rogers and Cowan co-chairman Paul Bloch to handle his publicity activities replacing Cruise's sister, Lee Anne DeVette, who had been serving as his publicist since March '04. I’d fire anyone who told me to jump on a sofa to confess my love for someone I had been on three dates with.

And for some good fun. Not loving the new SJP hairdo...or is it a hair-eww?

You know you've had to much too drink when the drag queen stops the show to watch you doing your own rendition of Vogue. That was my Friday.
My Saturday was just as indulgent, food instead of booze though. We finally went to Lee for dinner, and I suggest everyone go there. The food was excellent and the staff was sooooo friendly...and I loved the budgie murals...how creative.
And I have say a huge thanks to a certain friend who hooked me up with a Holt's friends and family 20% off card. I won't name names, but you know who you are, and I Love ya for it.

Ok so the weekend box office (I saw Jarhead, thought it was very good, I'm not really into war movies, but this had me entertained/ disturbed...I also saw Capote which I LOVED!!! It was slow, so if you have ants in your pants you may want to avoid it, but I was so impressed (I embarrassingly thought Truman Capote was Al Capone....ha!!!) Philip Seymour Hoffman is pure genius

1. Chicken Little, $40.1 million
2. Jarhead, $28.8 million
3. Saw II, $17.2 million

This is supposed to be a Simpson free zone (I'm also supposed to be taking a Madonna break) so I guess it's all out the window. Ashlee Simpson was stinking drunk/ coked up at a McDonalds while in Toronto and was apparently a complete schizo fool. I can't believe there was a time when the Simpsons intreested me and I would giggle about how much Jessica reminded me of me...blah

My latest favourite redneck celeb wannabe (Kevin Federline) has a CD in the works. The first track leaked and can be found with very little effort (that is if you're a glutton for punishment and want to hear his hilarious attempts at rapping... brings to mind...I'm drinking a Soy latte the room is full of hotties).

Crazy Courtney Love needs girl band members...she's writing new music and looking to audition (NO Boys) beginning next month for a guitarist/back-up vocalist and a bassist. Ideally the back-up singer is someone who looks like Kathy Hilton but twenty-five years younger. Bassist needs to be “heavy, goth, but not ugly”. No drugs, no boys, no desperado’s. Send us your resume at EMI, inc. and some pics (no full body shots). A tour in January is hoping to take place. Be ready for hard work and leave your shit at the Obstetrician. I think she should see if Anna Nicole Smith is available (talk about a train wreck) Yowza

Margaret Cho inks sitcom deal with Fox. Her comedy script would involve a character based on her mother, whom she regularly sends up on stage. "I'm very excited about this project because, finally, I get to become my mother," says Cho.

Madonna performed Hung Up for the first time tonight at the Europe MTV awards (and while her voice wasn't top notch, she can sing very well live hello Reinvention Tour) she looked AMAZING...hard to believe that's the body of a 47 year old. Is there anything wrong with me saying that when I'm 47 I want to have a body just like that...minus the boobs mind you...actually I want a body like that now, still minus the boobs
