"The O.C." plans major "reinvention" next season
Josh Schwartz says one of the four core cast members -- Seth, Ryan, Marissa, Summer -- might be knocked off, and Kaitlin will return and spark a "repopulation of the high-school universe." "You will see a whole new generation through Kaitlin's eyes," he says, adding that the "older" kids will segue into a "twentysomething world beyond just the bait shop."

That useless twat Perez has some good gossey:
N Syncer Lance Bass is in a hot and heavy relationship with Reichen (from the Amazing Race)

Word of the world's most famous silent birth has finally been heard. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, the public lovebirds dubbed TomKat by the media, "joyously welcomed the arrival" of a baby girl Tuesday, said Cruise spokesman Arnold Robinson.
The girl, named Suri, came into the world at 7 pounds, 7 ounces and 20 inches long. Her name has its origins in Hebrew, meaning "princess," or in Persian, meaning "red rose," Robinson said in a statement.

from towleroad:
Howard Stern on Rosie O'Donnell's gay family cruise documentary: "It's so, like, kind of beautiful, and she put together this cruise where they could all be together and not feel so abnormal all the time and be goofed on, and I thought it was great... I gotta hand it to the broad. She did a good job, and she did a good thing for people. You know. And at one point, they pull into, like, The Bahamas, and there's a religious group protesting them, and – it's pretty upsetting...But Rosie was like very, very cool about it, and you see her working with these kids, and it was, you know, hey – you can goof on her all you want, but she's doing more than most. She's doing something for people."

This week's Entertainment Weekly provides a glimpse into the new Bill Condon Dreamgirls production: "There will be four new songs, including an '11 o'clock number' for Beyonce titled 'Listen' and a paean sung by [Jennifer] Hudson called 'Love You I Do.' Frets Condon, 'They'll be saying, 'He changed this, he changed that.' I mean, that's what I would say.' The studio reps are betting critics and award balloters won't sing the same lament."

Big Brother All Stars
CBS is planning an all-star edition of summer hit "Big Brother," but with a twist: Viewers will help cast the show.
Details are still being hammered out, but the current plan calls for CBS and the producers to select a pool of 20 past "Big Brother" players. Viewers will then get the chance to help select which of those 20 get to move into the "Big Brother" house in Studio City.

ABC will likely rejigger its Sunday-night lineup next season - moving "Grey's Anatomy" or "Desperate Housewives" to a different night.(NYPost)

Kylie's first post cancer photoshoot was a sensitive matter, so she had her boyfriend Oliver Martinez snap the pics

If I could turn Mykeywood into a full time job, I'd do it in a heartbeat. Until that time comes (or Darren makes enough $ that I can become the domestic diva I long to be) I'm going to have to majorly scale back on the effort I'm putting into this blog.

So updates will be sporadic at best, and Mykeywood may turn back into more about me and less about every single celeb tidbit I can get my hand on.

(on a selfish note...I'm going to London and Paris for a couple of weeks and wouldn't want to be worried about missing some big scoop or trying to track down an internet café when I should be enjoying my vacation)

Page Six goodies:
Test audiences for their upcoming romantic comedy, "The Break Up," hated the ending so much that Universal spent millions more to do reshoots. Our spy reports, "The original screenplay had Jennifer and Vince's characters breaking up at the end.
"The new ending has them getting back together in the end. It should really be called 'The Make Up,' " snickered our source.
"People want to see Jennifer happy after she was thrown over by Brad Pitt for Angelina Jolie," added another insider. "And with the original ending - well, it was just too much of the same."
Jennifer Lopez filed a lawsuit in L.A. yesterday to stop a salacious tell-all by her hunky first hubby - claiming Cuban stud Ojani Noa broke a no-tell pact and tried to shake her down for $5 million. J.Lo claims he's using the racy manuscript to make a buck off their brief 1997 marriage. Among other tidbits

Janet is skinny (again)
Janet Jackson was at her peak weight back in October, estimated to be around 250lbs. Since then, she has been following a strict fitness regimen -- possibly for the upcoming release of her album this fall.(TMZ)

Wow this is a real shocker!
After years of blaming her skeletal figure on her “tiny bones” and insisting she had a “healthy appetite,” Calista Flockhart finally admitted to London’s Daily Mirror that she did not eat properly while starring as the title character on “Ally McBeal.”
“At the time of all that, I was seriously stressed,” Calista said. “I was working 15-hour days on the set and then I was dealing with the end of the show, which was basically my life.”
“I started under-eating, over-exercising, pushing myself too hard and brutalizing my immune system. I guess I just didn’t find the time to eat,” she confessed, adding, “I am much more healthy these days.” (BostonHerald)

MTV's 'Real World' To Be Filmed In Denver:

Mykeywood's movie of the week:
The Brick

Until the day that his ex-girlfriend, Emily (Emilie de Ravin), reaches out to him unexpectedly and then vanishes. Brendan's feelings for her still run deep; so much so, that he becomes consumed with finding his troubled inamorata.

Who doesn't like a good lap-dance?
Prince Harry, the third in line to the British throne, celebrated the end of his military training with a visit to a lap dancing club, British newspapers reported Saturday. Harry, 21, watched dancers at the Spearmint Rhino nightclub in Slough, southern England, during celebrations marking the end of a year of study at a military academy, the Daily Mirror said.

I'm the worst for remembering to have chilled wine ready for my guests...so how handy is this little invention?
Serve it chilled. Ever put a warm can of soda in the freezer to get it cold quickly, forget about it, and return later to find a mini-mess when you realize it exploded? Here's a handy device that will get your cans chilled in 60 seconds and bottles of wines chilled in six minutes. It sells for $80 and works by spraying a cold jet of water over the bottle or can. Not bad for 80 bucks Click

Just want to say sorry for my lack of updates this week. My full-time job was insanely busy and I just didn't have any free time. Maybe you will forgive me when you see this week's hottie (coming later today)

Madonna Presale Passwords through ticketmaster
Certain venues are having Madonna concert presales for their VIP season ticket holders (this is separate from the Madonna Fan Club presales)
Madison Square Gardens password is: BKConf
Miami American Airlines password is: Confession
I’m a little late with this, so if you want amazing seats, you might want to hold off until the general sales start.

Wanna know why Maodnna's tickets are so much?
Sure, Madonna and her dancers will be working it until the cows come home on her 'Confessions' tour, so why shouldn't she have all the perks? Just remember who's paying. Tickets for her Garden stop are approaching $400.
Madonna fans who'll shell out up to $384.50 a pop for her June shows at Madison Square Garden can at least take solace that the do-re-mi is going to a good cause: Madge's creature comforts on the road.
The tireless terpsichorean, who rehearsal spywitnesses say at 47 is in better shape than ever, will perform crowd-pleasing classics like "Ray of Light" and "Like a Virgin," and hits from her 1.4 million-selling "Confessions on a Dance Floor." And she'll puddle-jump between 21 cities from L.A. to Amsterdam, in a private jet, natch.
Kids Lourdes, 9, and Rocco, 5, will be running around the world's finest hotels like Eloise at the Plaza, since the diva has insisted they and hubby Guy Ritchie and nannies need an entire floor wherever they go.
Every one of her dancers and band members down to the last maraca player will wear couture by Stella McCartney and Jean Paul Gaultier, with numerous costume changes. And she'll need those oxygen facials every day, along with a team of skin specialists in tow, our sources say.
The profits will also go to prophets: The Artist Occasionally Known as Esther has demanded 40 free tickets for rabbis and fellow kabbala-following pals at each venue, with 50 more for celebrity schnorrers, er, friends, like Gwyneth Paltrow and Lindsay Lohan. She also wants 15 cases of Kabbalah water for every show, sources say.

And here's another toothy tile clue:
- Any chance Chris Klein is Toothy Tile?
C.K. ain't Toothy, though I must say that's a fairly close guess. Think, uh, well, just think more, and you'll see the brainy light.

Ted Casablanca reveals clues about the mysterious Vanilla Fill-ya:
'Twas just another junket for hottie Vanilla Fill-ya--a much more daring adventurer in the boudoir than his teenybopper fans realize. Alas, these media affairs must get so tiresome after a teensy while. Perhaps, then, a combination of jaded boredom and curious kinkiness is what drove Vanilla Fill-ya. to step into a rather spacious stall with a cute gent for some on-your-knees, open-your-mouth fun.
Van was serviced, natch. I mean, he is, like, pretty famous.
You know, I'm never one to balk at the surprise-he's-gay-but-shhh news. However, I admit I am rather stunned about Van's bi-licious tendencies. His image is so freakin' straight. In fact, Vanilla Fill-ya's the guy your teenage daughter is convinced should take her to the prom and deflower her under the bleachers before homecoming queen and king are crowned.
And yet, it's pretty common knowledge in Hell-Ay that Mr. Fill-Ya's a big-time he-ho. No, not a Bruce Willis 24/7 flirter, more of a pathological mattress masher of endless female flesh.
Well, good to know you're open to all kinds of sexiness, Van. But you might wanna do a bit like other same-sex studmuffin's in town do, and get the confidentiality agreements signed before that next bathroom door is locked.

Under a licensing agreement, Carey's first fragrance will debut in department stores in the spring of 2007(AP)

WHhat's up with Katie Holmes? The once vivacious actress is like a "Stepford" wife ever since she hooked up with Tom Cruise and Scientology. During an interview with the expectant parents for Parade, reporter Dotson Rader writes, "Holmes . . . wore a large diamond engagement ring. She seemed dazed, passive and vacant. She never stopped smiling." Holmes continued smiling through the interview as Cruise described how his father beat him, and as Cruise was "hooting how beautiful she was, touching and kissing her like a teenage boy on his first backseat date, aware that he was being watched." Creepy.(pagesix)

THINGS are getting nasty on the set of "American Idol." On the show that aired Tuesday night, during a chat with contestant Mandisa, Ryan Seacrest told Simon Cowell, "And if you read the dictionary, you'd know what 'constructive' means." To which Cowell replied, "Ryan, with respect, I'm not the one trying to look like someone out of 'Desperate Housewives.' Lose the beard." While Seacrest was sporting a beard, the jab was more at how Seacrest, a confirmed bachelor, had himself photographed kissing "Housewives" star Teri Hatcher. Hatcher, a press hound herself, has since said the two are not dating.(pagesix)

Yay! Project Runway just ended and now, on April 10th, comes the British version, with Elizabeth Hurley filling the shoes of Heidi Klum Project Catwalk
Elizabeth Hurley hosts the first ever U.K.-based TV competition to focus on the world of fashion design. The British version of the hugely popular Project Runway gives 12 talented and hungry fashion designers the chance to see if they have what it takes to cut it in the highly competitive fashion industry.
Set in fashion-forward London, England, each week the budding designers compete against each other in a series of challenges that will determine who has what it takes to be the next “It” designer. The top three finalists will have the golden opportunity to show a collection in front of the global fashion community during London Fashion Week.

These two are not meant to be in a movie together...Baz Luhrmann's untitled 1930s drama starring Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman, which was eyeing a September start date in Australia, has been pushed back to February because of scheduling conflicts and budget debates with 20th Century Fox, sources have confirmed(ap)

Wal-mart takes a stance (for once):
Wal-Mart to the producers of "Brokeback Mountain": We won't quit you.
Today, the largest retailer in the U.S. starts selling DVDs of the film about a gay love affair between two ranchers, despite protests from a national Christian organization.
The 3-million-member American Family Assn. initiated a campaign last week encouraging Wal-Mart customers to ask the company to refuse to stock the Universal film, whose director won an Academy Award last month, in its 3,900 stores.
The Tupelo, Miss.-based group began its campaign last week, after Wal-Mart placed ads with images of the film's stars, Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger, at the front of stores to promote the DVD release.
"It wasn't even a blockbuster movie, so if Wal-Mart isn't trying to push an agenda, why would they put it at the front door?" said Randy Sharp, director of special projects for the association, which calls itself an organization for "people who are tired of cursing the darkness and who are ready to light a bonfire."(LATimes)

Sharon Stone, on the season opener of Huff, was perhaps the craziest character I've ever seen on T.V...and as far as I'm concerned, serves an Emmy nod (even if it may not be that big a stretch for a crazy to act crazy). Anyhow, crazy had a first-class seat last Friday flying from New York to Los Angeles while her 9-month-old son, Laird, sat in coach with his nanny. "First class was sold out," a spokeswoman explained. "She tried to get them seats in first class but couldn't, and she didn't want them on a separate plane."(Pagesix)

The next issue of Vanity Fair (while commendable) is going to be a total snooze fest:
Vanity Fair presents its first “Green Issue,” beginning an “increased commitment to reporting on the threat to our precious environment,” says editor Graydon Carter. The May cover features a quartet of eco–power players, capturing Hollywood glamour and activist passion: Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Al Gore, Julia Roberts, and George Clooney.

Matthew Kennedy, a 16-year-old Grade 11 student, can't believe that he got more than $60,000 for an old pickup truck used in the filming of the Oscar-winning movie Brokeback Mountain (that he only paid $8000 for). He bought the 1950s GMC truck about a year ago after a friend who worked on the film tipped him it was to be sold at auction. After the movie won several Oscars, Kennedy decided to put it up for sale on EBay and see how much he could get for it. Final bidding on Thursday night reached $60,100.(Edmonton Sun)

Tom Cruise was on the German show Wettendass over the weekend. He said that he had arrived directly from the airport but worried he would have to head right back again "because Katie could be having our baby at any minute."(people) Access Hollywood is reporting it’s a GIRL (Katie Spent 20 grand at some baby store and everything was for a little girl’s room)
