Katie Holmes on Letterman

Did anyone see Katie Holmes on Letterman Thursday night? She was so bizarre and humorless about her "relationship" with Tom Cruise. She told Dave that it had never crossed her mind that Tom Cruise is much older than her, refused to answer how they met and, strangest of all, flat out denied that she is taller than him.

You can view part of the interview on http://www.cbs.com/latenight/lateshow/

Dave Chappelle is back from __insert location__!



I work across the streeet from the Childrens Aid Society, which is the school Chappelle's son attends. Well, lo and behold, Pops was there to pick up his son today. So, he IS back in NYC (if he even left NYC to begin with), but whether he is back to finish taping segments for the show is a whole other entry.

Just thought I'd update the fans :)

Judd Nelson.


So I guess he did show up at the MTV Movie Awards. Why the hell didn't he go on stage though? It sucks to see only 3/5ths of the cast. :(

Porn star to attend President's Dinner

By JUAN-CARLOS RODRIGUEZ, Associated Press Writer
Published 6:18 pm PDT Wednesday, June 8, 2005

WASHINGTON (AP) - The annual President's Dinner, a Republican Party fundraising event featuring
President Bush, could get an extra dash of spice this year with porn actress and former California
gubernatorial candidate Mary Carey planning to attend.

The porn industry and Republicans may seem like strange bedfellows, but Carey said she sees
Tuesday night's dinner as a good opportunity to learn more about their policies and do some networking. She plans to run for lieutenant governor of California as an independent next year.

RODMAN PULLS OUT OF WIFE CARRYING CHALLENGE

What a shame!

RODMAN PULLS OUT OF WIFE CARRYING CHALLENGE



Colourful former basketball star DENNIS RODMAN has been forced to pull out of next month's Wife Carrying World Championships in Finland after his spouse suffered motorcycle injuries.

Rodman, who counts MADONNA and CARMEN ELECTRA among his former lovers, had hoped to take part in the quirky championship to celebrate his second wedding anniversary, but his wife MICHELLE MOYER injured her wrist and collar bone in a recent bike fall.

The reformed wildman is still hoping to attend the Wife Carrying World Championships next month, but concedes he won't be competing.

Instead, Rodman is now planning to join the daredevils who risk life and limb at the annual Running Of The Bulls in Pamplona, Spain.

Britney Spears's hand is about to get a little heavier.

The pregnant pop star is getting an upgraded engagement ring – a gift from her husband Kevin Federline – to replace the one she picked out last year from jewelry designer Cynthia Wolff.

"I think it was because he wanted to buy her the diamond ring," a source close to Spears tells PEOPLE.

The new ring, also designed by Wolff, is quite a sparkler, says the source, who describes it as having a platinum band with a 5.5 carat round, single diamond set in a classic style.

Though Spears was spotted testing out a similar version of the ring over Memorial Day, friends say the real thing won't be delivered until later this month.

"Kevin is giving it to her, which is a huge gesture, I think," says the friend. "He's a real standup guy. It is lovely and she's very happy and excited. The gesture of the gift is huge."

Kevin Smith on Ben & Reese

Ben Affleck can get a little nutty around his buddy Kevin Smith. The "Jersey Girl" director tells Maxim U.K. that during filming of the 2004 flop, Affleck used to pull a prank called a "Fruit Basket." Smith explains: "I'd be sitting in the di rector's chair and I'd be watching a playback, and he'd stand behind me. Every once in a while I'd feel something on my neck. I'd be like, 'What the [bleep] was that?' And I'd turn around and he'd have his [scrotum] out and resting on my neck. I was like, 'What the [bleep] is wrong with you, dude?' What if it got out in the press that that's the kind of thing you do?' He's like, 'No one would ever [bleeping] believe you, sir.' " Besides exposing Af fleck's scrotal shenanigans, Smith tells the mag about his hate for Reese Witherspoon, who was once rude to Smith's ex-girl friend, Joey Lauren Adams. "I was at some party with Joey . . . and Reese had just got a part Joey was hoping to get," Smith recalled. "Joey said, 'Hey, Reese — I just wanted to say congratulations. I think you'll do really great with the part,' and Reese just gave her this dead-eyed look and was like, 'Whatever.' What a [bleeping] [bleep]-bag!"

Silly Russell Simmons and his fuzy numbers.

Not So Phat Financials After All

Russell Simmons, founder of Def Jam Recordings and Phat Fashions, arbiter of urban style, wants to improve the financial smarts of the hip-hop generation. Good thing he's not the one doing the education.

The "Get Your Money Right" tour, featuring Simmons as host and Suze Orman as the personal finance expert, started in Detroit on May 14 and will travel to five other cities this year. But two days after the first seminar, it came out that Phat Fashions was practicing its own kind of financial empowerment. In a deposition in a lawsuit involving a business partner, Simmons let on that he had exaggerated 2002 sales and profits, The New York Times reported.

Even the hyped figures changed throughout 2003, as Simmons sought a buyer for his privately held company. He found one: In early 2004 Kellwood Co., which says it got a good look at the books, paid $140 million in cash for Phat and is happy with the deal. Simmons' usual rap was that Phat's sales were about $350 million. Wholesale? Retail? He wasn't specific. Few in the fashion business are. In an October 2003 cover story, BusinessWeek</b> was told that in 2002, wholesale revenue came to $263 million. Turns out it was really only $170 million, says Rush Communications, Simmons' holding company. The other figure was projected sales for 2003. Rush says it gave the wrong number by mistake.

And Phat's supposed $29 million profit? Actually that is its licensing revenue plus the amount anyone holding the license would earn. Well, Simmons has always said that hip-hop is all about aspiration.

Jimmy Buffett pulls a "Paris" (click link for whole article)

Palm Beach troubadour Jimmy Buffett is facing Paris Hilton-esque embarrassment.


No, not the sex tapes. In Buffett's case, it's the cellphone, silly!


According to a police report, a busboy in a Delray Beach eatery found
Buffett's cell and kept it for a week. After coaxing by Buffett's staff and even
wife, Jane Buffett, went awry, it took a visit from Lake Worth cops and a U.S.
Secret Service agent to the home of busboy Jason Martin on June 4 for Buffett to
get the phone back.

Problem is: The fancy Ericsson's memory card with
the names, phone numbers and some addresses of dozens of big-deal Buffett buds
is missing.

It may be time for Democratic giants Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Jimmy Carter; country music stars Clint Black, George Strait and Alan
Jackson
; rap-reggae star Cam'ron; actors George Clooney, Michael Douglas and
Harrison Ford; and Microsoft supergeek Bill Gates to change their numbers.
Martin says all their info is on the microchip.

"We were sitting around
smoking weed and strolling down the list on Jimmy's phone, going 'Wow!' " Martin
told Page Two. He said he didn't call anyone on the list. But according to the
police report, Martin said some of his friends may have crank-called former
President Clinton
.

Martin, 22, said he found the $500 phone at 4 a.m.
May 29 outside the Cuban joint Brisa Atlantica. Buffett was spotted going wild
on the dance floor earlier that morning. No one seemed to miss the phone until
May 30, when a Buffett minion dialed the cellphone's number, and Martin
answered.

"He said I was a thief and a liar," Martin said. "Then I
called Jane's number, and she was nasty to me. So I told them I wouldn't give it
back."

When a $200 reward didn't help, the country cross-over singer of
It's Five O'Clock Somewhere called the restaurant for help, he told Page Two
Monday. Brisa owner Israel Torres then fired Martin and called the cops. Because
of the Clinton and Carter entries in the memory, WPB-based Secret Service agent
Tim Sturgell also responded. Martin gave the cell back, sans SIM card.


Secret Service spokesman Steve Caruso said there is no active
investigation involving Buffett. Lake Worth police didn't return calls for
comment, and neither did staff for Clinton, Carter, Clooney and Black. Martin,
whose criminal record includes a marijuana-related conviction, wasn't arrested.


"It's a person's worst nightmare," Buffett said. "I had probably left
the phone on the restaurant table, but I got it back."

The chip? "There
wasn't much on it," he said. "Although whoever had the phone may have called a
couple of my contacts." He didn't elaborate, then claimed to have locked the
phone's keyboard with a password.

"Not true," Martin said. "I wonder if
Jimmy really knows how these things work."

Hollywood sleuth's wiretaps could touch big stars

Steven Seagal you are in trouble..


LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A federal court on Thursday ruled that
prosecutors can comb through transcripts of wiretaps found in the
office of celebrity sleuth Anthony Pellicano, in a case that could
involve some of Hollywood biggest stars.

The ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected
Pellicano's argument that the November 2002 search of his Hollywood
office was illegal, and that evidence seized there could not be used to
convict him.

The court also confirmed Pellicano's conviction on charges that
he had unregistered firearms, grenades and enough plastic explosives to
bring down an airliner in a safe in the office.

Pellicano, a private eye for more than two decades, called
himself a "sin eater" for Hollywood stars and was often called on to
keep his clients' names out of the press.

His client list included Elizabeth Taylor, Tom Cruise, Michael
Jackson, Kevin Costner, Farrah Fawcett and some of Hollywood's biggest
entertainment lawyers.

The federal probe was originally triggered by reports that
Pellicano had engineered threats against Los Angeles Times reporter
Anita Busch to stop her from writing a story about his client, action
star Steven Seagal.

FBI agents found the explosives and the equivalent of two
billion pages of wiretap transcripts while searching Pellicano's office
for evidence.

Thursday's appellate opinion gives prosecutors free rein to use
the evidence to support more charges against Pellicano or others
involved in the wiretapping, which could touch some of Hollywood's
biggest names.

Busch said she received threatening telephone messages, was
nearly run down by two men in a car, that her computer hard drive was
destroyed, and that someone placed a dead fish, a rose and a note that
said "Stop" on her car windshield.


At the time, Busch was working on a story about an alleged Mafia extortion plot against Seagal.

At least two other reporters have accused Pellicano of trying to
intimidate them into killing negative stories about his celebrity
clients.


Pellicano is scheduled to be released from prison next February.

6/10/2005 Lindsay: Just Like Marilyn?



Even though it was a celebration for late icon Marilyn Monroe's birthday, Lindsay Lohan was the one who got a special present. The actress was previewing auction items from Monroe's estate at L.A. restaurant Meson G when she had a close encounter with one of the legend's friends. As Lohan, who was decked out in a white Michael Kors dress, mingled at the party (sponsored by luxury design magazine homesource/los angeles and furniture store Barclay Butera), Monroe pal Jeanne Carmen was brought over to meet her.

"I just got chills – you remind me of Marilyn," Carmen told her. Lohan's response? "Oh my God, that's the best compliment I've ever gotten in my whole life." The two then continued to chat about Lohan's idol, but the Herbie: Fully Loaded star was clearly reeling from her words.

Lohan then rushed off to meet Sen. Hillary Clinton at a private fund-raiser before hitting nightclub Mood for the birthday of her pal Allison Melnick, a club promoter and TV personality. And though Lohan had planned on changing her outfit for every stop, the compliment from Carmen kept Lohan in her Kors dress all evening.

Nip Tuck Star Julian McNahon Still In Running For Bond

McMAHON INSISTS HE'S STILL IN THE RACE FOR 007

Australian actor JULIAN McMAHON is refusing to give up the fight to play the next JAMES BOND, even though director MARTIN CAMPBELL seems to favour ER doctor GORAN VISNJIC.

The NIP/TUCK star has been among the names mentioned in relation to the vacant 007 role for CASINO ROYALE, and he admits the fuss surrounding the race for Bond has been great for his career.

And he insists he's still in talks with Bond producers at EON Films about the role.

He tells Australian newspaper the DAILY TELEGRAPH, "It works to my advantage. Even if I hadn't spoken to them (producers), the press that I've got has been enormous. But I have spoken to them."

Meanwhile, Australian movie website MOVIEHOLE.NET have added a new name to the Bond mix - British actor JAMES PUREFOY.

Site editor CLINT MORRIS says, "The rumour circling round here - and what I've been told to put a bet on - is James Purefoy left V FOR VENDETTA (new NATALIE PORTMAN movie) to be Bond.

"I was also told by an insider that McMahon is next in line if Purefoy declines. Purefoy did screen test for GOLDENEYE back in 1995."

Hiltons to Attend L.A. Gay-Pride Parade

LOS ANGELES -- Paris Hilton and her mother, Kathy, will be grand marshals for the annual gay pride parade, one of the city's biggest celebrations.

They will greet tens of thousands of people expected Sunday at the Los Angeles Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual & Transgender Pride Parade.

Paris Hilton, the 24-year-old star of television's "The Simple Life" reality show, provoked controversy recently by appearing scantily clad in a Carl's Jr. burger commercial.

The hotel heiress is engaged to Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis, a grandson of John Latsis, the last of Greece's shipping billionaires from the postwar boom years, who died in 2003 at 93.

Kathy Hilton stars in NBC's "I Want to Be a Hilton," in which she guides 14 young contestants through a variety of weekly challenges in the New York social scene, ranging from art and culture to beauty and fashion. The winner of the show, which premieres June 21, will receive a $200,000 trust fund.

Halle Back with Ex?

Halle Berry is reportedly back in the arms of Barbershop star Michael Ealy after admitting she's changed her mind about marriage. Just last year, the Oscar-winner insisted she'd never wed again after two failed unions with Eric Benet and baseball star David Justice - but then she fell for Their Eyes Were Watching God co-star Ealy. Friends tell tabloid the National Enquirer the couple split earlier this year after Berry insisted she'd never marry Ealy. But now she's changed her mind. A source says, "Halle and Michael got back together in late April intent on working out their problems... In the end true love has won out for Halle and Michael."

3 scans from her spread in this month's Elle. She looks amazing with her red hair back, and she doesn't seem as sickly anymore. And yeah, I know half of you don't give a shit, but at least it's behind a cut.

ETA -- I'm pretty sure these are recent, within the past month or so, maybe? She's redhaired but she's also very thin -- Like in her face and arms, and her boobs seem smaller in the magazine, so I don't know. (Also -- Less freckles? Didn't she have them removed recently?)
