HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!

I'm officially 1 year away from 30...boo hoo

Thursday, December 29, 2005


Following six months of treatment for breast cancer, the photos above clearly depict a beautiful and happy Kylie, out Christmas shopping in London. As far as we are aware, Kylie has yet to receive the full 'all clear' from her doctors - and she is still setting new fashions with various headwear

Apparently I'm a slacker...I probably won't be back to my terrific blogger-self until Jan 1 (sorry kiddies, but I'm busy and since it's my birthday tomorrow, and then New Years Eve the next day, I will more than likely be drunk from now until the first day of 2006.
So I'll do some copying from another site for nw with some late breaking news: From perez:
We've been saying it for weeks and now the bible of celebritydom is chiming in, Us Weekly says that Angelina Jolie is sperminated!
A "business associate" of Ange's, according to the pub, "is telling people that Angelina is pregnant."
Adds another source, "One of Angelina's friends got drunk one night and bragged about knowing."
Even Brad Pitt's rep, Cindy Guagenti, who just a few short weeks ago was confirming that Dad Brad was adopting Maddox and Zahara, refused to give a statement, saying cryptically, "I'm not commenting on Brad's personal life." No need! The pics of Angelina looking much fuller in the middle these days speak for themselves.

Tori spelling has had way too much plastic surgery. I laugh when thinking about all those nights watching 90210 and noticing how her left nostril got smaller and smaller and her boob cleavage eventually separated enough that she could easily fit a third in the middle. Anyhow, this hasn't stopped her from getting the men (thanks to E-Talk daily, I inaccurately reported she was pregnant Us Weekly has learned exclusively that Tori Spelling, 32, got engaged to her boyfriend of four months, actor Dean McDermott, 39, on Christmas Eve while in Canada visiting his family. A source close to the couple tells Us that McDermott popped her the question after a moonlit ride on a horse-drawn carriage on a Christmas tree farm just outside of Toronto, Ontario. ''I've never seen her happier,'' a Spelling pal tells Us. ''She said it was the most romantic night of her life.'' Spelling's engagement ring is a luminous diamond-and-sapphire ring that, according to a source, has a ''1940's style.'' Spelling's rep couldn't be reached for comment. Both Spelling and McDermott are in the process of getting divorced. Spelling's ex, writer Charlie Shanian, 39, filed for divorce on Oct. 13 of this year, fifteen months after the couple's $1 million wedding. Earlier this year, McDermott separated from Canadian TV personality Mary Jo Eustace, 48, with whom he shares two kids. Spelling and McDermott met this summer on the set of the Lifetime TV movie Mind over Murder. The couple has not yet set a wedding date.

Oh my my...I don't know where Jared finds this stuff, but here are some late x-mas prezzies for ya:
Ricky Martin and his unamed male "Friend" have spent a few sun-filled days in St. Barts...must be nice.

And for a really big announcement, I know you've been waiting: KevinFederline.com has launched!!!

Christmas has come and gone (again) and I was so preoccupied with dinner's and presents and being at Holt Renfrew this morning when the doors opened at 8:00 am, that I've been neglecting my little blog. Beginning tomorrow everything will resume to pre-x-mas timeliness I swear.
Based on a Martha Stewart recipe, which I must have watched 15 times on her Home for the Holidays DVD, I made Christmas dinner twice (once for friends on the 23rd and once for my family on the 25th). Granted I may have had too much red wine during the first dinner to really judge, but I thought it turned out fantastic (Standing Rib Roast, Yorkshire Pudding, Roast Potatoes etc...) the second dinner, well let's just say...my father summed it up best telling me "These potatoes are lousy". Christmas, if nothing else, reminds me that I'm grateful to not be living at my parents anymore...AMEN! (By the way, I blame the way dinner turned out on the 25th on my parent's cold oven, and not on me or Martha)

4 more sleeps until I'm 29...YIKES!

So...Lileo (at the Distillery) has 50% off everything in the store, including all denim (Rock and Republic jeans for $130!!!)

This is why I want to be famous because generally, when I crash into someone, they don't lean through my window for a wee chat.....from Perez: Coldplay star Chris Martin caused traffic chaos after crashing his car into the back of another vehicle. The singer, who is married to actress Gwyneth Paltrow, was driving through London's Belsize Park when he slammed into the back of an unnamed woman's Honda. After the crash, the rocker refused to leave his BMW X5, staying put in the driver's seat as the other motorist talked to him through the window. Martin's car suffered no damage while the other vehicle now sports a large dent in its rear bumper.

I can't leave you without some reviews for the movies opening today (we were 20 minutes through The Squid and the Whale last night, at The Cumberland, when the fire alarm went off and we had to leave the theatre)

I haven't posted anything Christmasy yet, so here ya go Here's a long, but interesting, NYP story about the kid (now man) from A Christmas Story (one of the ebst x-mas movies ever...but boy, did the years weren't kind to little Ralphie, see the pic of him all grown up)December 23, 2005 -- 'YOU'LL shoot your eye out, kid."
In the beloved holiday movie "A Christmas Story," poor little Ralphie Parker heard those disappointing words over and over — from his mom, his school teacher, even from a not-so-jolly department-store Santa.
All 9-year-old Ralphie wanted was an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model BB rifle. Is that so much to ask?
Yet the answer was always the same: "No, kid. You'll shoot your eye out."
By now, you've probably heard that line at least 100 times if your holiday tradition includes the nostalgic 1983 family classic — which will again air on TBS on a 24-hour loop beginning at 8 p.m. Christmas Eve.
But just imagine how many times that "shoot your eye out" line has been quoted back to the one-time child star who played the lovable Ralphie, the now 34-year-old Peter Billingsley.
"Especially around this time of year," jokes Billingsley, still a pudgy-cheeked grown-up but much less recognizable, since he swapped his Ralphie glasses for contact lenses. "You'd think I'd be sick of hearing it, but really I'm just thankful I'm known for a good movie — not as the kid who ate Pop Rocks and his stomach exploded."
Billingsley will forever be known for the Red Ryder BB gun, and for flipping out on school bully Scut Farkus and for the triple-dog dare scandal at Harding Elementary School, when his pal Flick got his tongue stuck on a frozen flagpole.
But there's a lot you may not know about Billingsley.
Like, did you know he's the great-nephew of TV's June Cleaver (Barbara Billingsley) who began acting at age 21/2 in a Geritol commercial before moving on to a string of Hershey spots as Messy Marvin?
Or that when Billingsley was 9 years old, shooting a scene at Madison Square Garden for the film "Paternity," he rubbed Burt Reynolds' head and said, "Hey, big guy" — knocking off Reynolds' toupee?
Or that he's now a movie producer and frequent collaborator with close friend Jon Favreau on films like "Zathura," "Made" and the Vince Vaughn-Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy "The Break-Up," due out in June?
Or that in the '90s, the semi-recognizable Billingsley used to get then-struggling actor pals Vaughn and Favreau past the velvet ropes at L.A. nightclubs — where all their skirt-chasing glories went directly into Favreau's breakthrough screenplay "Swingers"?
Yes, it's true. In the parlance of "Swingers," Billingsley was "the guy behind the guy behind the guy."
"We'd go up to the bouncers, like seven dudes," he remembers, "and Vince would be like, "Perhaps you know Peter Billingsley from 'A Christmas Story,' and they'd look at each other and then let us through. We worked that scam for a while."
Billingsley was roommates in a house of five that included Vaughn, whom he met shooting an after-school special called "The Fourth Man." Billingsley was the fourth man on a high-school track relay team who (gasp!) took steroids to keep up, and Vaughn played his star teammate.
"There was a whole thing where my dad liked him more than me, because I took after my mother and I was a science kid," laughs Billingsley. "So I started taking steroids to impress my dad."
And the tidy moral of the after-school special?
"I, of course, got the heart condition and the four-page diagnosis from the doctor about how my n - - s were gonna fall off."
Billingsley also soon became a working partner with Favreau, with whom he's also co-produced the roundtable "Dinner for Five" chat show on IFC, and the two became close friends.
"He's an ace in the hole," Favreau says "We went to a USC [football] game this year, and he got us into the coaches' parking lot. The guy at the gate didn't know me, but he recognized Peter. People get a kick out of him."
Although he occasion ally pops on screen for cameos, like in the Favreau- directed "Elf," Billingsley says he's most com fortable these days editing and producing.
"It's good to have new chal lenges," he says, citing the recent sci-fi fantasy "Za thura" — in which, by the way, Fav reau paid homage to "A Christmas Story" by planting a tacky leg lamp in one background shot.
" 'Zathura' was my first time working with kids," Billingsley says. "And we had sets that were tilting and shaking, and the kids were hanging upside-down from wire harnesses.
"I think that maybe because I was once a kid on set, that gave their parents some comfort. You know, like hey, I turned out OK so they'll turn out OK, too."
Sure, so long as they don't shoot their eyes out.

Ok, so unless there's something big going on, I'm going to majorly slow down the blogging over the next few days so that I don't have to baste the standing rib roast and run over to the computer etc... as you can imagine if I end of basting the G5 and blogging the oven I could be in trouble.
So there'll be little updates here and there (mainly great Boxing Day deals), but for the most part, I'm going to leave the celebs alone so I can enjoy the long weekend.

Page six really has some great stuff lately. Elton, Elton, Elton...when will you ever learn? if you're going to bully Madonna, you're goin to lose: ELTON John tried to end his feud with Madonna by inviting her to sing at the bachelor party for him and his husband, David Furnish, Monday night. But John told his guests, "Madonna, the miserable cow, wouldn't do it. David asked her three times." Bryan Adams and the Scissor Sisters performed for the likes of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, Elizabeth Hurley and Kid Rock. Madge's spokeswoman, Liz Rosenberg, told PAGE SIX, "Madonna wishes Elton all the best, and hopes married life will make him a happier person." I think it's time to have an Elton embargo again, unless it's too hot to pass up.

And one more Page Sixer, Where did the money go, the crack? bad clothes? plastic surgery? COURTNEY Love is broke and wants to raise cash by selling her rights to the song catalog of her late husband, Kurt Cobain, and Nirvana. Sources say Love, whose Crosby Street apartment was in foreclosure earlier this year, is looking for $100 million.

A product of my hard work:

Mr and Mrs Elton John

England has finally come to their senses allowing gay couples to legalize their one night stands that just wont leave, with civil unions.
I don't know why I was so shocked to see this, but Prince Charles actually brought a horse to the wedding (see pic below), is this his gift to the Rocket Man and the Scarborough boy-next-door?

It's a good thing Kathy Griffin has reconciled with her hubby, she'll need his shoulder to cry on.
From Page Six: E! President and CEO Ted Harbert is the grinch who stole Kathy Griffin's Christmas.
Just a week before the holiday, Harbert informed Griffin's lawyer her services would no longer be needed at E! To make it worse, she found out she'd been axed only because her lawyer called asking "what the deal was" with the upcoming Golden Globes.

Now that Rebecca Romijn has shed that extra weight perhaps her brain is functioning a little bit better...apparently she was seen snuggling up for a week at the One and Only resort in Palmilla, Mexico, with a mystery man who was definitely not Jerry O'Connell.

I can't find the news source to back this up...but as I sit here sipping my morning coffee watching Regis and Kelly (Bonnie Hunt is filling in for Kelly today) Regis is talking about how Star Jones and Joy Behar (the view co-hosts) have a raging war going on...oh what I'd pay to see Joy rip off one of Star's wigs on T.V.

As far as I know, the final two episodes of Nip/Tuck (which have already aired in the US...why is CTV waiting until the New Year?) are en route to me from Mary who has managed to tape them with her satellite...it's going to be difficult to avoid finding out who the carver is as I scour the net for gossip, but I have to try.

Gwen Stefani, nominated for five Grammy Awards including album of the year for Love.Angel.Music.Baby., is pregnant with her first child, according to Us Weekly.

I don't mind seeing Christmas trees in the shops before Halloween, but I hate seeing boxing day specials before Christmas. Anyhow, it's my responsibility to pass on the savings to you, even if it is against my constitution. Here's the first worthwhile deal...stay tuned since I'm certain there will be a ton of these over the next week; And for those of you buying me presents for my 29th b-day on the 30th, deals mean you can by me more, not buy the same and save $ (just needed to clear that up)

Now, back to wrapping prezzies and watching the fantastic new Kylie DVD (Showgirl)

I'd sue too if people said that I had sex with the corn-row wonder K.Fed....Britney Spears filed a $20 million US libel lawsuit Monday against celebrity magazine Us Weekly, charging it published a false story reporting she and her husband, Kevin Federline, made a sex tape and were worried about its release.

Elton John and filmmaker David Furnish hosted a gayer than gay bachelor party to celebrate their upcoming civil union at a West End London nightclub

Michelle Rodriguez wanted police to shoot her during DUI arrest...According to a police report obtained by a Honolulu TV station, the "Lost" star's blood alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit, according . The arresting officer wrote that Rodriguez was "very argumentative" and behaved like a "problem child," telling officers: "I was only drinking baby." The officer also reported that "... she wanted me to shoot her. She kept complaining that we could not take away her freedom. She told me, 'Just take my car and I'll walk all the way to the North Shore

My new close friend Kelly Ripa's "Hope and Faith" dressing room caught on fire in a blaze caused by an unattended candle left sitting on top of her TV set. I would have thought the her hot hubby had set the room on fire with his smokin' ass

Rumors are going around that my sometimes on sometimes off (dependant on his current hair colour) boyfriend, Brad Pitt, has purchased an engagement ring for the brother-f#cker (remember the Oscars '02) Angelina Whorlie

Have you seen those pictures of Tom and Katie making out in the rain skating in Central Park? What will it take to have those two committed to a really secure psych ward? Even Gail's best friend Oprah feels askew about those two...and if Gails best friend feels uneasy then we should all be concerned.

With a light dusting of flour on my nose, I'm taking a baking break for some gossey (I'm off work this week, to bake, wrap, shop, eat, workout, sleep in, and drink...fun!

So Kate Moss' drug woes continue...From the NY Post:
AS if Kate Moss needed another reason not to re-unite with junkie rocker Pete Doherty — consider that the British bad boy's HIV-infected former drug dealer is urging Doherty to get an AIDS test. Owen O'Dwyer started selling heroin to Doherty three years ago, and says he used to do drugs with his famous client. "I'm terrified Pete might have HIV," O'Dwyer tells the Sun in London. "I had no idea I had the disease when we were doing drugs — I want him to know this was not intentional. We didn't share needles but we kept our needles in the same glass. I'm worried blood on the needles may have mixed."

Now that Jessica has filed for divorce...it's going to get dirty...Nick Lachey may sell his side of the divorce story to OK! magazine for $300k

Ashlee Simpson collapsed following a performance in Tokyo and has been admitted to hospital. The 21-year-old singer on Thursday had just performed her single, Boyfriend for MTV Japan, when she told the audience she felt sick and said to them, "I love you guys," Us Weekly reported Friday. She then collapsed in an elevator and was rushed by ambulance to a hospital.
Her representative, Rob Shuter, confirmed the report, but would not give further details or provide Simpson's condition.

By now you know, Rachel McAdams little boobies were exposed, unbeknownst to her, at the premiere of The Family Stone. Anyhow, I've debated about putting the pic up here..and have decided on an angle that is not going to get anyone in trouble who may be viewing this at work (of course my fav, not being posted is the close-up where you see HAIR!!!)

David Beckham and his silly little Gillette ad. I love love love this man and would let him give me a good shave any day....and if I could get this posting picture function to work, you'd see it and love it too....Yippee persistence has paid off!. Enjoy

This picture of Kirsten Dunst, from Perez (enough with the scribble by the way), just helps me to believe that my Jakey G. must be a homo (I mean really)

Can you believe that Anna Wintour, the uber bitchy Vogue editor, forced trendy NYC eatery Balthazar to bring in a bush so that she could coud have privacy while she ate! I'm so looking forward to the screen version of The Devil Wears Prada so that googley-eyed diva will finally go down. Yay!

It's "LIVE" with Will & Grace
NBC's Emmy Award-winning Will & Grace will welcome 2006 with the second live episode of its eighth and final season on Thursday, Januray 12 (8-8:30 p.m. ET in its new time period) as Karen (Megan Mullally) throws a birthday party and ends up staying in the bathroom with her friends for virtually the entire episode.

Movies Opening in the GTA today (with the exception of King Kong which opened on Wednesday) click for reviews:
Brokeback Mountain (please please please see this movie. It's my pick, so far, for best film of the year. Subtle but brilliant)

We all knew the day would come. My favourite celeb to deny having her stomach made into the size of a pea, is releasing a book. I can't wait to get a copy because I'm dying to read the chapter on how to convince a hot gay man to marry a payless shoes spokesperson.

It's nice to see everyone is celebrating the holiday's...including the husband stealing Angelina and her equally adulterous boy-toy Brad. here they are getting their x-mas tree. How sweet.

Brooke Burns is wearing a neck brace after breaking her neck diving into a pool...I like a girl who knows how to accessorize.

BEVERLY HILLS, California (AP) -- Nominations for the 63rd annual Golden Globes were announced Tuesday as the culling process for the Academy Awards got under way.
Nominees for the supporting movie actor Globe were George Clooney for "Syriana," Matt Dillon for "Crash," Will Ferrell for "The Producers," Paul Giamatti for "Cinderella Man," and Bob Hoskins for "Mrs. Henderson Presents."
Supporting actress nominees were Scarlett Johansson for "Match Point," Shirley MacLaine for "In Her Shoes," Frances McDormand for "North Country," Rachel Weisz for "The Constant Gardener," and Michelle Williams for "Brokeback Mountain."
The cowboy romance "Brokeback Mountain" had an early lead with four nominations. Besides supporting actress it was competing for best screenplay, score and song.
Winners of the Golden Globes will be announced Jan. 16, five days before polls close for Oscar voters. Oscar nominations come out Jan. 31, and the awards will be presented March 5.
The Globes feature 13 categories for film and 11 for television. Unlike other major movie awards, the Globes have separate divisions for dramas and comedies or musicals in the best-picture and lead-acting categories.
Anthony Hopkins will receive the group's Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement.

Matt Damon's finace is 3 months preggers. Everything Ben does Matt follows son after...cute. Minnie Driver must be rolling in her grave..oh wait, she's not dead just her acting career is.

R.W., I have some exciting news to share...Dreamgirls is coming to a movie theatre near you soon (well December 2006) but the teaser trailer and website are online...http://www.dreamgirls.dreamworks.com

New York Times rave for Brokeback Mountain: "...Both Mr. Ledger and Mr. Gyllenhaal make this anguished love story physically palpable. Mr. Ledger magically and mysteriously disappears beneath the skin of his lean, sinewy character. It is a great screen performance, as good as the best of Marlon Brando and Sean Penn. The pain and disappointment felt by Jack, who is softer, more self-aware and self-accepting, continually registers in Mr. Gyllenhaal's sad, expectant silver-dollar eyes."

Amazing race ifno you need to know:
Next week's season finale of "The Amazing Race" won't actually be the finale.
In a first for the CBS reality skeinskein, the "Race" will continue online after the action ends on TV. That's because producers taped a runner-up challenge in which the second- and third-place teams competed to win a new car.
Rather than air the bonus segseg on-air, however, CBS designed the challenge to be an Internet exclusive. As a result, the so-called "mini-race" will be featured exclusively on the Eye's Web site, CBS.com.
The six-minute seg will be available for streaming immediately after the West Coast broadcast of the "Race" finale wraps at 11 p.m. Dec. 13.

I forgot to tell you..our only random celeb sighting in NY was standing next to Danny Bonnaducci checking into the same hotel...ewww.

For those of you who read my film festival blog, you may remember me reporting that Johnathon Schaech was all over some slutty girls at the Proff after-party…well guess I was right…Actress Christina Applegate and husband Johnathon Schaech are calling it quits after four years of marriage. The couple filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court. Schaech is also an actor. Their publicists, Ame Van Iden and Chuck James, confirmed the split Monday. "The decision is mutual," they said in a joint statement without further comment.

Look closely at the screen caps from the Regis and Kelly show...it's like playing where's waldo...only hotter ;-)














I shopped and shopped and shopped. Poor D I dragged around every store in NYC twice (at least). We did damage at all the department stores (Bloomingdales, Saks, Bergdorff's, Barney's) and all the flagships (Marc Jacobs, John Varvatos, Dior Homme, Jil Sander, Louis Vuitton) I was in shopping heaven.
Fiddler was very good...and Rosie was a hoot.
I now have a boy-girl crush on Kelly...she is so down to earth and so funny and so personable. She seems so normal. During commerical breaks...when she wasn't talking about how sall her boobies are she was asking Giselle how to walk on a runway and also told us a funny story about someone coming up to her on the weekend and how someone was wearing a t-shirt that said "I'm with a bunch of idiots" which she read aloud...later to find out from her husband that the woman gushing thought the Kelly called her an idiot (yes this story makes no sense, but I'm tired so eff-you and continue reading.
The Abercrombie flagship staff are so good looking I thought I was going to have to change my pants with excitement...yowza!!!

Ok, I have to post this now before I get into trouble.
The sweetest man in the world gave me this:
at:
It was a complete surprise and something that had apparently been in the works for almost all year. This was followed up by even more surprises...a hotel room covered with red rose petals, chocolate covered strawberries, and of course two perfectly chilled cosmopolitans.

Firstly, the play Dog See's God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead...is the best play I've ever seen...ever (and not just because Ian Somerhalder (Lost) has no shirt on, or because Trey (Logan-Marshall Green from The OC) makes out with Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas from Amercian Pie)

I know some of this news is outdated now, but I still wanted to inform the uninformed of some crucial info ;-) Everything should resume to it's usual timely (and before eveeryone else)self tomorrow...(with some personal NYC updates happening tonight)

Brad Pitt has formally adopted Angelina Jolie's two children as a precursor to the couple's marriage, In Touch has learned exclusively. A legal petition was filed in LA on Friday to change the children's names to Maddox and Zahara Jolie-Pitt.

"Idol" star Julia DeMato arrested on cocaine, DUI, marijuana charges...Police picked up the 2nd-season "Idol" finalist early yesterday on drunk driving charges after she failed a sobriety test. After a search of her SUV, police say they found two marijuana pipes, less than 4 ounces of marijuana and a small amount of white powder that tested positive for cocaine. Asked by her local newspaper to comment, DeMato declared her innocence. "I am not a drug user," she said. "This was just a misunderstanding. It's going to be taken care of in court and that's that."

Lost Stars...Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros were arrested early Thursday morning in Hawaii within 15 minutes of each other, while driving separate cars. They were stopped, according to police records, after they were spotted weaving on the highway


Justin Timberlake is opening an Italian restaurant in midtown with Eytan Sugarman, the owner of the Chelsea nightclub Suede. "It's going to be a real-deal restaurant called Destino, a tablecloth place," says Sugarman, who opened Suede in 2002 in partnership with the hip-hop producer Timbaland. Former Rao's chef Mario Curko will head the kitchen, establishing the spot's New York Italian bona fides.

Jennifer Garner, 33, has given birth to a baby daughter (supposedly called Violet)

Scarlet on the cover of Jan '06 Elle:

Only 1 more sleep and D and I will be en route to NYC. Even though I’ve been to New York too many times to count, this time it’s a bit different for me (which explains my excitement). I once read somewhere about someone writing out a list of their life’s to-do’s (I think it was Phil, the host of the Amazing Race) and I thought what a great idea. While I haven’t actually sat down and compiled my list just yet, some things, the one’s at the top of the list, stand out…no matter how cheesy it is to you…one of them is to go to New York and see the tree at Rockefeller Center. So even though I’ve been before, I’ve never been during the x-mas season (which as you may or may not know is my favourite time of year).
Ok so a high level overview of the game plan (yes I do have the entire weekend planned out) is as follows (I’ll spare you the time and location allotted to shopping and doing “it”):

Fri Dec 2nd
- Plane leaves @ 7:20 am (I loathe flying so say a little prayer for me)
- Check in @ W Tuscany (thanks to my thrifty nifty booking we have a rate of $169…check for yourself, the going rate is now over $500.00)
- D has planned a surprise dinner somewhere for us (all I know is that I have to wear a suit and I’ve been worried that I wouldn’t have a chance to wear my velvet John Varvatos this year)

Sat Dec 3rd
- Lunch @ Boom (our favourite place to lunch)
- Fiddler on the Roof (with Rosie O’Donnell and Harvey Firestein)
- Shaking our booties at a some bar (Splash more than likely)

Sunday Dec 4th
- Check into a different W hotel due to my silly hotel booking back in 2004
- Seeing the play Dog Sees God (starring a slew of young Hollwood actors…including Ian Somerhalder and Eliza Dushku)
- Dinner at Nobu Next door

Monday Dec 5th
- Thanks to Jenna for getting D and I VIP tickets to Regis and Kelly (we should be up front in the audience, so you may want to tape it to catch a glimpse…yippee)
- Make D go back to all the stores once more to buy all the things that I had put on my “maybe” list
- Possible Facials at Nickel Spa
- Board the plane for Toronto @ 8:00 pm (I loathe flying so say a little prayer for me)
Check back on Tuesday for the NYC wrap up and some celeb news updates (including any NYC celeb sightings)

Don’t forget… Oprah Winfrey makes a historic return to Late Show With David Letterman tonight. Oprah told Time of her previous two appearances…”Twice was enough. Both times I was sort of like the butt of his jokes. I felt completely uncomfortable sitting in that chair, and I vowed I would not ever put myself in that position again."

Christina and her, um, unsual looking husband share more of their wedding pics (she sang “At Last” at the reception)

Top model last night was really good, I friggin love that show. Anyhow, don’t you think Jayla looked like that actress married to that really old guy..oh right, Catherine Zeta Jones?




From the superficial: “Debbie Rowe, the mother of two of Michael Jackson’s 'children', has claimed the babies were conceived from a test tube. According to Rowe, both Prince Michael Jr., 8, and Paris, 7, were conceived using semen from a sperm bank. “Michael knows the truth — that he is not the natural father of Prince Michael Jr. and Paris,” Rowe said, “he has to come clean.”
