The full details of the tour will be released Monday 9am EST. Road trip, Road Trip!!!

Easily one of the best reality shows on T.V....Starting next week, "The Amazing Race" will air at 8 p.m. on Wednesdays, a switch from its previous spot at 10 p.m. Tuesdays.

Every so often I come across a place that I enjoy so much that I think it's only fair that I pass on the deets.
Izakaya
The restaurant/lounge swirls notes of streamlined design around Tokyo-centric nuances, generating a slavishly fashionable eatery devoted to Izakaya-style cuisine, remaining faithful right down to the low prices. The setting consists of a communal style, deco-splendent dining area - six wooden tables (sadly, with uncomfortable, backless benches) and a row of banquettes along the east wall. All this is stuffed into a refurbished 19th century building, with a whimsical front lounge, linked by a dramatic, glacierlike central bar.

Britney Spears made her guest appearance on will and Grace last night (I couldn't even be bothered to watch it since the show is awful). If you, like me, missed it here's your chance to see how good/ bad she was click to watch

No longer friends? They've been on the rocks ever since he was caught fooling around with that stripper months ago, but now it's over for good. Matt LeBlanc has filed for divorce from his wife, citing irreconcilable differences, but his publicist says the two remain "friends."(AP)

Is Toronto wealthy enough to support two Chanel boutiques?
Apparently so.
A mini Chanel opens today in the Bloor St. Holt Renfrew store, just two blocks from Chanel's own flagship on the other side of Bay St.(torstar)

Finally...Madonna Confessions TourCanada's Entertainment show announced the Montreal date of June 21st. It will be presented by Gillette Canada.  This is starting to look like it's the real deal for Montreal! They also said all official dates will be announced this Monday(madonnamadforum) Now I hope Toronto is on that list otherwise...Roadtrip!!!

She's one crazy b!tch...Supermodel Naomi Campbell was arrested at her Park Avenue home on Thursday charged with second-degree assault after cracking her housekeeper in the head with a phone during an argument!

Two observations I have to make before sharing this bit of news:
1). Does this mean the anorexic look is officially “in”?
2) She’s really only 31? She looks at least ten years older.
Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is set to take the fashion world by storm with the launch of her own style and beauty guide. The 31-year-old singer, who released her autobiography LEARNING TO FLY in 2002, has teamed up with writer HADLEY FREEDMAN to produce the fashion bible. The book, which is called THAT EXTRA HALF AN INCH, will have tips and secrets from the star as well as interviews with famous designers. Victoria says, "I've been working on this for six months. It's been a really hard secret to keep as I've been so excited about the whole project. "I'm so glad people will know now, so I can finally talk about it.(contactmusic)"

$45,100.01 is all you would have had to pay for George Clooney's Oscar gift bag Clooney donated the bag to the United Way, and it sold for $45,100 in an online auction. The bag given to presenters at the 78th Annual Academy Awards included a BlackBerry 8700c, a Kay Unger kimono and a cultured Tahitian-pearl necklace.(AP)

You know I love those gay blind items!
Which barely closeted film star better be nicer to his tricks if he doesn't want to end up in the gossip columns? The leading man in a current release took a male model home after a recent visit to Bungalow 8. But after receiving oral, informed the gentleman, "Don't [bleep]ing touch me!" when he tried to show some actual affection. Now the miffed model is telling the story all over town.(NYDailynews)

7 months pregnant, Gwyneth Paltrow indulged in a glass of Guinness at the lower East Side sushi bar Cube 63. Don’t worry though, according to her rep, “she drank the alcoholic beverage, but said she ate only cooked food, not sushi”. Well that makes me feel a whole lot better.(Rush&Molloy)

As much as I would have liked Jade to have hit the road last night (ANTM) the show would be quite a bore without her. Poor Gina, see ya

Teri Hatcher and Ryan Seacrest making out in public....this is the biggest cry for attention I've ever seen...well at least since the Jessica adopting story a few hours ago

Sometimes I can't be bothered posting items of people who I have ZERO interest in, as is the case with this...however, I know enough people will want to know…so here goes (thank God for cut and paste):
Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons and his wife Kimora Lee will formally announce they have split this week, according to media reports (contactmusic)

Is this a strategic career move? Jessica to adopt! "Nothing has been finalized yet" as to when and how Simpson will adopt, her publicist, Rob Shuter, told The Associated Press on Tuesday. But he added, "It is true that she's exploring options."

I fyou have any gag gifts to buy, hold off a few months! The king of white trash, Kevin Federline, will release his hip-hop album, "Playing With Fire." this August!

Katie’s ex, who’s also a big time mormon switching teams?…I doubt it, but one could always hope! Chris Klein, chilling with a semi-Brokeback bud. 35er. Pasadena. All I'm saying is that his buddy was wearing these really in-your-face, supernoticeable cowboy boots, you know like Jake Gyllenhaal's. Also noticeable: Chris was rubbing the small of this tall, skinny blond chick's back. Good luck to them both.(Ted eonline)

The new Justin Timberlake movie Alpha Dog has been hit with legal action by Jesse james Hollywood - the man whose kidnap and murder case the film is based on. Hollywood - claims the Nick Cassavetes movie will prejudice his upcoming trial for the abduction and murder of a Californian teenager over an alleged drugdebt (contactmusic)

Lindsay Lohan may have hooked up with some of Hollywood's hunkier stars, but she struck out when she hit on Oscar winner George Clooney." Lohan approached Clooney's table, chatted with him and was "pretty flirtatious," said a witness. "Lindsay was trying to be charming to win him over and definitely wanted to hook up, but George wouldn't go there. He knows better."(Rush&Molloy)

Another year of drooling over Wentworth Miller! Fox has picked up Prison Break for a second season. I read in Entertainment Weekly a funny little blurb “Wentworth, I know that escape plan B is on your tush, so drop your pants let’s take a look”. Love it!

More proof that sequels are never a good idea, and if you’re over 45, keep the clothes ON! : Maybe Sharon Stone should have listened to those who thought "Basic Instinct 2" was a bad idea. At the premiere Monday night, audience members kept cracking up at inappropriate times, like when Stone intones, "Not even Oedipus saw his mother coming!" "The only thing worse than the dialogue were Sharon's implants," shrieked one wag. During the fullfrontal scene, Stone's bosom seemed lopsided(Page Six)

I know it's just a picture, but don't you think Jennifer Garner is going to be a fantastic mom. Here's a pic of her with baby daughter Violet.

Wilmer Valderamma was on the Howard Stern show yesterday...here are some useless facts you never needed to know:
-Slightly larger than 8 inches
-He has had two women at the same time
-Didn't "do" Ashlee Simpson
-Has slept with Lindsay Lohan, Mandy Moore, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Rosario Dawson
-Wilmer said 'yes' when he was asked if he has had anal with Lindsay, Mandy, or Jennifer (but wouldn't say which one)
-Said that Lindsay didn't have any hair down there

Pink was once a little bit lesbian...you don't say?!
"I had a girlfriend when I was 13 and she left me for my brother! "That kind of f-cked me up ... We held hands and we kissed and that was my girlfriend, that's what you do when you're 13! And she left me for my f-cking brother! It was bizarre and twisted and f-cked up and gross."(postchronicle)

Bye Bye Cargo , we hardly new ya'. What a shitty way to start the day; news that one of my favourite magazines is closing its' pages for the last time.
Condé Nast has pulled the plug on quasi-homo magalogue Cargo. The Publication will cease with the May issue; president and CEO Charles Townsend says, “This was a difficult decision. Although initial readership and advertising response were encouraging, we now believe the market will not support our business expectations.” On the bright side, Cargo subscribers will be trading up — they’ll receive GQ for the remainder of their subscriptions.(gawker)

What do you do when your reality show comes to an end? Have another one;
KELLY Osbourne is to star in her own MTV show, we can reveal. She's been signed up for a fly on-the-wall series that'll follow her attempts to become a method actress. And we hear 21-year-old Kelly - who became a star thanks to The Osbournes - gets into some pretty testing situations, including living in a brothel.(3m)

Ok he's cute, but why would anyone want to go out with him after he treated Sophia like a piece of dirt?
"One Tree Hill" star Chad Michael Murray has hooked up with another beauty from the hit TV show -- an extra who has just turned 18 years old. The 24-year-old actor -- who split from co-star Sophia Bush last September after just five months of marriage -- is reportedly now dating Kenzie Dalton, who plays a cheerleader on the teen drama. (SFGate)

Star Jones got Implants...EWWWW!
Phoning her cohosts on The View over live TV Monday morning, Star Jones Reynolds assured Meredith Vieira, Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck that, contrary to tabloid reports about her recent hospital stay, "I did not almost die."
"I had a boob lift," she said. "I thought it would be nice to call you guys this morning and keep you abreast of the situation." She also admitted she'd gotten implants because she wanted her breasts to be "perky." "Will we be able to touch them?" Hasselbeck asked. Jones Reynolds replied, "Elisabeth, you are such a freak." But, she added, "You'll be able to see them. … They're just normal boobs. It's not that I went and got triple Ds." As for how her new breasts look, Jones Reynolds said, "Friday was my 44th birthday, but my boobs think they are still 20." And, yes, she required a blood transfusion due to complications, she said, although she downplayed the incident's seriousness.

Brad and Angelina have not returned back to the U.S. as reported. Their European Family vacation continues in the South of France. Brad, do us all a favour and give up these silly flying classes!!! Don’t you know celebs + flying = bad news?

I knew there was a bitchy side to her:
"I did vote for her for Walk the line because she was so good. I forgot how much I hated that c**t!" Director Kevin Smith still holds a grudge against Reese Witherspoon, after she was rude to him. (He tells British magazine MAXIM, "I was at some party with Joey Lauren Adams and Reese had just got a part Joey was hoping to get. "So Joey said, 'Hey Reese, I just wanted to say congratulations. I think you'll do really great with the part.' And Reese just gave this dead-eyed look and was like, 'Whatever...'."To have that kind of attitude back then; I guess she was meant for stardom."

Clay, come out and move on. It's no longer a secret (not that it ever really was)! Aiken has kept a low profile since former Green Beret John Paulus went on the record saying they had unprotected sex. Since then, others have come forward, noting they too had relations with Aiken after meeting him on the Internet. Aiken, whose image is based on a church choirboy, was even sued by some irate fans claiming false marketing - and now, spies said Aiken was spotted last Tuesday night at the Dinner Detective, a murder mystery dinner in Los Angeles with "a gorgeous girl on his arm."(Page Six)

Kyle MacLachlan is joining the cast of Desperate Housewives April 16 for a multiepisode arc. "He’s a lovelorn, single dentist who is trying to make a connection with Susan," (TV)

Did anyone happen to notice that there was a telephone number tattooed on Michael Schofield's (Wentworth Miller's) arm in the last episode? Well, that number is 312-909-3529, and it is a REAL number.... Check it out! There is a wee bit of scoop hidden in there ...(watch with Kristen)

Randy Quiad is seeking 10 mill in a Brokeback law suit. Randy Quaid, who plays a tough sheep rancher in "Brokeback Mountain," claims he was fleeced for his work in the movie and is suing. Quaid filed a lawsuit Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court alleging the producers got him to work cheap by falsely claiming the movie was "a low-budget, art house film, with no prospect of making any money." "Yet from day one, defendants fully intended that the film would not be made on a low budget, would be given a worldwide release, and would be supported as the studio picture it always was secretly intended to be," the lawsuit says. Quaid agreed to waive his usual seven-figure fee and share of gross profits in favor of a much smaller payment, the suit claims, although it doesn't say how much he was paid. The suit alleges intentional and negligent misrepresentation and seeks at least $10 million in damages. It names Focus Features LLC, Del Mar Productions LLC, which was formed by Focus to make the movie, and producers.(AP)

Project Runway’s Zulema questions the editing of the fab show. The series never disclosed the fact that she is a lesbian who’s been together with her wife, Sherie, for more than three years. At first, she said she was hesitant about revealing her lesbianism, but once she arrived, she realized, “Everyone here’s f--king gay! Why do I care anymore?” Zulema hoped her presence on the show would help “to inspire other people to not be afraid to come out. Unfortunately with African Americans, no one comes out.”(Bay Windows)

Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz, will they last?
Last week they couldn't have looked happier dining at Alma de Cuba in Philadelphia. But that hasn't stopped Hollywood harpies from claiming their romance isn't one for the ages. "Justin has told friends he's 'confused,'" one informant tells us. "He likes Cameron a lot. But he's 25. He says he just doesn't know how committed he can be. He needs space. Cameron is a little controlling." People pulling for the pair shouldn't be too worried by the whispers. "It's complete garbage," says Timberlake's rep Ken Sunshine, who is also a sanitation engineer.(Rush&Molloy

Mykeywood's movie of the week (click for reviews)

Thank You For Smoking (Tom Cruise has been trying to get the Katie Holmes getting down and dirty scene excluded from the final cut, did he succeed?) By the way, saw this at the Toronto film fest, and the scene isn't remotely graphic, so grow up T.C.!

Other movies you might want to check out...

Inside Man (My favourtie lesbian, Jodie Foster, has a new movie that is actually getting good reviews (after a string of stinkers, think Flight Plan)I haven't seen this yet, but it's getting great reviews)

V For Vendetta This opened last week in the #1 spot, and deservedly so. This movie is fantastic. Natalie Portman is gorg, even with no hair. And who would have expected a DC comic to have so many gay undertones?

Mortimer Paltrow? Gwyneth Paltrow is having a boy - and no, she's not going to name him Orange. The Oscar winner, mother with hubby Chris Martin of adorable daughter Apple, wants to name her second child Mortimer, after her godfather Steven Spielberg, according to rossmathews.net. Paltrow apparently affectionately refers to Spielberg as "Uncle Morty"(Page Six)

Jakey G greets his "friend" with a great big man hug. I've never wanted to be part of group hug more than at this moment.

Wearing horizontal stripes, Jared Leto was on Fuse’s Daily Download today saying he has lost 40 of the 65 pounds over the past month, which he gained to play MDC. (Thanks to Mary for letting me know he’s returning to his old hottie self!)
