Two Blind Items

Could it be that one of our favorite fag hags rang in the New Year once again barking up the wrong tree? So say folks in SoBe who tell me that the sly older cat and a significantly younger cutie were canoodling like two bad mice in the corner — until the beauteous boy's buff beau barged in. Charity may begin at home, but this vacation suddenly had three little mice jockeying for attention. Sounds like the last honeymoon of our perpetual Miss!


A blind item in The Mirror asks, "Which pop starlet is worrying her pals with her newly developed penchant for disco dust? She's fallen in with a showbiz crowd with bad habits, and nothing her bandmates say will make her see sense."

Matt and Ben Reunite On Screen

The famous friends are supposedly planning to remake Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. According to OK Magazine:

The actors will take on the roles made famous by PAUL NEWMAN and ROBERT REDFORD in the 1969 classic.

Damon will reportedly play the Sundance Kid, while Affleck will recreate Newman’s role as Butch Cassidy, according to America’s OK! magazine.

They may laugh this one off, but I bet some Hollywood big wigs think this might actually work. And there is a whole generation who has not seen the original classic. Besides, remakes are popular these days. I can see it now.

There are not enough words for me to express how sad this is. I really don't buy it. I see an Ishtar coming. NOOOOOO!

Eminem, Ex-Wife Apply for Marriage License
01/11/2006 10:01 AM

Slim Shady and his ex are going to get married again.

Kim Mathers, Eminem's former wife, has applied for a license to marry Marshall Bruce Mathers III, aka Eminem.

The application was filed with the Macomb County clerk's office and was to be ready on Thursday, the clerk's office said Wednesday.

The couple has 30 days from the application date to remarry in Michigan, but information on the wedding has been scant since the rap superstar announced in December that the two would get back together.

Eminem and the woman known to hip-hop fans merely as "Kim" reconciled in late 2004. They had married in 1999, and their divorce, finalized in 2001, included an ugly divorce and custody battle over his young daughter.

Both grew up in suburbs along Eight Mile Road, Detroit's northern border.


Lets start taking bets on how long they will last!

BET plans Lil' Kim reality show 'Countdown to Lockdown'

BET is planning two new reality shows, including a previously revealed show that followed Lil’ Kim before she went to prison.

Lil’ Kim: Countdown to Lockdown is “a six-episode reality series about the last two weeks in the life of the raunchy female rapper before she began a one-year prison sentence in September for perjury linked to a shooting between rival hip-hop camps,” according to the New York Times.

Also on BET’s lineup is Season of the Tiger, which “chronicles the achievements and pressures of football players and band members at Grambling State University, a historically black school in Louisiana,” the paper reports. Neither show has a premiere date yet.

The shows are designed to let BET “reach its base with more breadth and creativity, while also trying to woo new viewers.” That strategy has its critics—including original Real World star Kevin Powell. “There has been such a pandering to younger people. … We have to stop participating in the one-dimensional portrayals of ourselves. And BET as the premier television network for black people has to take the lead on that,” he said.

Julia Roberts to Make Her Return in "War" Movie

Scott Weinberg writes: "Variety reports that Ms. Julia Roberts, who hasn't been in a flick since 2004's "Ocean's Twelve," is planning to co-star with Tom Hanks in Mike Nichols' and Universal's "Charlie Wilson's War."

Roberts is in early talks to board the project with her "Closer" director Mike Nichols. She'd star with Tom Hanks, who is producing the film with Playtone partner Gary Goetzman.

Hanks declared last year that he'd play Charlie Wilson, the rogue Texas congressman who oversaw the covert funding of the Afghan rebels in their battle against the Soviet Union.

Roberts, who took time off after giving birth to twins, is in talks to play Joanne Herring, a big-haired and beautiful Texas socialite who influenced Wilson to support the rebel cause.

Based on the book by "60 Minutes" producer George Crile, "Charlie Wilson's War" was scripted by Aaron Sorkin. Production will begin later this year.""


The idea of the plot still doesn't get my motor running but I usually like Tom Hanks. Julia Roberts gets a big "Ehhhhh" in my book though.

Oh snap.

It has been revealed that Nick Lachey is suing his estranged wife Jessica Simpson for ‘breach of contract’.

According to the Post Chronicle, court documents state that Lachey is suing Simpson for ending their marriage three months before the couple contractually agreed to be publicly married.

Lachey’s attorney allegedly wrote in the documents: "Mr. Lachey signed over to Ms. Simpson all royalties from '98 Degrees' songs, his appearance on an MTV reality show to promote her albums and perfume line, and his soul in exchange for 41 months of marriage that would keep him in the public spotlight,"

"The couple has been married only 38 months and Ms. Simpson is in violation of the contract, ending the union early."

Written responses from the Simpson camp claim that Lachey was currently still receiving a lot of media attention and will continue to do so until their divorce is finalized.

The 34-year-old Australian beauty, whose sister Kylie is currently recovering from breast cancer, would love to perfect her own raunchy routines - but fears her neighbours will be shocked by the new addition to her pad.

She told News.com.au: "I'm trying to work out how my London pad can accommodate a pole.

"Although, with floor-to-ceiling windows, it's probably best for the neighbours that I don't."

Hilary's New Million Dollar Baby

Los Angeles, CA :: Just one day after announcing her separation with Chad Lowe, actress Hilary Swank was spotted with a new unidentified male companion during her lunch break on the set of her new film. (Separation announced Monday. Hilary Swank spotted with new man on Tuesday. Hilary Swank and Chad Lowe were married for eight years.) One of Hilary Swank's new co-stars perhaps? A taller, more good-looking Chad Lowe? Hilary Swank is in Los Angeles filming Richard LaGravenese's Freedom Writers about a young teacher (Hilary Swank) that inspires her class of at-risk students to learn tolerance, apply themselves, and pursue education beyond high school. Sounds like Dangerous Minds for the new millenium! If you have any clues as to the identity of Hilary Swank's new man, email me! And if you attend Alexander Hamilton High School in West Los Angeles, keep an eye out for Hilary Swank as Freedom Writers' is filming there. More Hilary Swank and her new mystery man pictures (5x).

Sober Casablancas

THE STROKES frontman JULIAN CASABLANCAS' decision to reduce his alcohol intake has saved the group, according to his bandmates.

The LATE NITE hitmakers were recently interviewed by cult writer JAY McINERNEY for an article in New York Magazine, during which Casablancas' bandmates admitted their darkest days in 2004 were due to the singer's drinking problems.

Drummer FABRIZIO MORETTI says, "Julian's become a lot more communicative since he quit drinking."

Guitarist NICK VALENSI adds, "Julian quitting drinking had a big effect on the dynamic of the band. Instead of the four of us excluding Julian and getting together and venting and airing our concerns, he's a part of it now.

"He's a lot more approachable and communicative. He's letting us know what's on his mind."


dave chappelle returns to comdey central

my first post yay!!

*Dave Chappelle is coming back to Comedy Central, but not to pick up where “Chappelle’s Show” left off.

The comedian, who walked away from his record-setting Comedy Central deal and successful television show almost a year ago, will return to Comedy Central on January 29th with brand new stand-up material, which hits on such topics as a black Santa Claus delivering presents on CPT, landlords using rent money to fund drug habits and sex as an Olympic sport.

“Dave Chappelle’s Stand-Up Special” will also feature the comic making comment on casting directors for porno flicks, and sharing thoughts on the way men and women argue.

Chappelle will also be seen on Bravo’s “Inside the Actors Studio” this season in an interview that had him so nervous that he resorted to chain-smoking through the entire exchange with host James Lipton. The comic joins actor Sean Penn as the only guests on the program to light up while on stage.

Gyllenhaal's got the music in him

Things got pretty raucous at Saturday night's Palm Springs Film Festival gala awards when Peter Sarsgaard presented pal Jake Gyllenhaal with the Desert Palm Achievement-Actor award.

"First, I want to say some nice things about Jake," Sarsgaard said. “He's got great hair. An amazing head of hair. And the thing about "Jarhead" is that he shaved it all off! Also, Jake is a fantastic singer and I think it's only a matter of time before you get to hear him sing. And I will dance,” said Sarsgaard, doing some suave hustle steps. "So you gotta sing, Jake, if I dance. Let's get this party started!"

With that intro, Gyllenhaal, laughing so hard he could barely speak, came out on stage, stepped up to the mike and sang, in a falsetto voice, "Fever Night, Fever Night, Fe-vah! You know how to do it!”

“Wow! Okay, let’s get raucous!," said Gyllenhaal, when he finished. “Listen, I’ve already played a gay cowboy. If I do a musical number, people will really start to question me. So I’ll stay away from music for a while but don’t think that it's not beating deep, deep in my veins. Very deep.”

He explained that his love of storytelling is what keeps him acting. "If the story moves me, I will do anything to be in it. I’ll play any part, even craft services. But I prefer theatrical work. But I would do that. No, no actually, I wouldn’t.”

Winding up his acceptance speech, Gyllenhaal spoke of how “films take me to places I never thought I would get to, and over walls that I never thought I could get over. When I think about that it's just — I dunno — I forgot.”

As the audience roared, Gyllenhaal continued, “Let’s be real. I forgot. And I was almost there. It was really gonna be good.”

Cage thanks Presley for current marriage

Nicolas Cage credits his brief failed marriage to Lisa Marie Presley with giving him the courage to marry a woman 20 years his junior.

The Face Off star, 42, tied the knot with waitress Alice Kim in July 2004 after a whirlwind five-month courtship, after realising he had found true love for the first time in his life.

The actor was married to Presley for just 107 days in 2002, and divorced actress Patricia Arquette in 2001 after six years together.

He says: "I feel like a new man.

"I've been involved in terrible relationships before where I was a lot closer in age to the women I was with and look what happened.

"So it's not a question of age."

Only Pretty People Enter J.Lo's 'South Beach'

Imagine a world where every inhabitant is a hunk or a babe, a world in which there are no children and practically no one gets older than, say, thirtysomething. It's a world with a huge population, but you still run into the same people over and over again. Science fiction? No, South Beach. Courtesy of executive producer Jennifer Lopez.

UPN's new drama does what even the most ardent proponents of euthanasia can't--eliminate practically all the seniors from Miami. In the process, it fashions a universe in which all women are models and all men have some sort of show biz career. And, every now and then, if a story emerges, it never hangs around for very long or gets told with conviction.

Starring in this all-style, no-substance parade of eye candy is Marcus Coloma as Matt, a Brooklyn guy. He just broke up with Arielle (Odette Yustman), so she could leave New York with no regrets for a career as a model in Miami. (You probably thought people come to New York to be models, but now you know better.) Matt's best friend, Vincent (Chris Johnson), decides on a lark to go to Miami. Matt isn't interested until he learns just a few hours later that his college fund is gone, gambled away by his father. So they tool down I-95 and, once they reach South Beach, they quickly cross paths with Arielle.

By now, you're thinking what a small place South Beach is, but wait. It gets smaller. Matt gets hired to fix problems at a hotel in which the night club manager, Alex (Lee Thompson Young), is Arielle's new beau. And Vincent gets connected with shady operator Robert Fuentes (Giancarlo Esposito) who, incredibly, owns a minority stake in the very same hotel.

You have to give credit to Esposito and Vanessa Williams (who plays the hotel owner and Alex's mom) for trying to breathe some life into their roles, but it's like building a skyscraper with Silly Putty. And it doesn't help that most of the other cast members say their lines as if doing so was a form of punishment.

Granted, the show probably was bought and sold as a young demo magnet powered by women in bikinis and guys with splendid abs. Directors Jason Ensler (the first hour) and Darnell Martin (the second hour) keep up their end of the bargain by filling shot after shot with sand and surf and poolside tanning and sun-splashed palm trees. Still, you'd think that someone somewhere down the line, perhaps writers Matt Cirulnick and Greg Cirulnick, would have lobbied for the rudiments of a story, characters with texture and dialogue more sophisticated than shopping mall conversation.

Hohan was here

We hear that last night at about 11:30, none other than Lindsay Lohan and Kate Moss sauntered into the Dark Room during the Tarts of Pleasure DJ set. Apparently the BFFs were looking for a venue where they wouldn’t be noticed, so Last Year’s Favorite Blow Bar seemed an appropriate choice for two "recovered" drug users. The ladies stayed there for the remainder of the night (presumably because they love hanging out with folks like Carlos D and My Chemical Romance); over the course of the evening, Lohan expressed her fondness for Gang of Four while Moss laid low and acted model-like.

Here's where it gets more interesting: While in the bathroom, Lohan allegedly asked if anyone had a Sharpie. A fellow patron actually happened to have one and handed it over to Lohan, who then used it to scrawl "Scarlett is a cunt" on the wall. Well done, Cap’n Discreet.

BFF's Forever!! Jen and Gwen exchange friendship bracelets.

Friday January 6, 2006

Talk about a guy's worst nightmare! Brad Pitt can't be happy that his ex-wife and his former fiancée, Gwyneth Paltrow, 33, have become new BFFs. After hearing about the married pair's split, Gwyneth reached out to Jen and the two have been burning up phone lines ever since. "They've been exchanging tons of e-mails and calls," says a source close to Paltrow. "There's some deep bonding going on." But Brad isn't the only thing the pair, who are expecting to meet up at the Sundance Film Festival later this month, have in common!

# THEY'RE BOTH A-LIST ACTRESSES:Aniston and Paltrow, who both hail from showbiz families, share the same publicist, Stephen Huvane, and are repped by the same agency, CAA.

# THEY GREW UP IN NYC: Aniston and Paltrow are both big-city girls. Aniston went to the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, while Paltrow attended tony The Spence School — on opposite sides of Central Park!

# THEY SWAP BRAD TALES: "I think they love to bitch about Brad," says the source. "They know him better than anybody else, and they get a real kick out of swapping stories."

# THEY'RE SKEPTICAL OF ANGELINA JOLIE? "It wouldn't surprise me if they're both pretty contemptuous of Brad's relationship with Angelina, and they're fairly certain that it's not going to last."

James Frey on Larry King tonight to talk about the "embellishments" in his book...

James Frey to appear on 'Larry King Live'

NEW YORK (AP) — James Frey, whose best-selling memoir about substance abuse, A Million Little Pieces, has come under intense scrutiny for alleged fabrications, has agreed to give his first interview since the controversy broke a few days ago.

He will appear Wednesday night on CNN's Larry King Live.

Bridget Leininger of CNN said Tuesday that Frey, whose 2003 book became a sensation last fall after Oprah Winfrey picked it for her book club, would not be interviewed for the entire hour-long program, but offered no other details. Spokeswomen for Frey and for his publisher, Doubleday, declined comment about his reasons for doing the show.

Frey's book has sold millions of copies, making him a hero among recovering addicts. But on Sunday an investigative website alleged substantial inaccuracies, accusing him of making inflated claims about his criminal record and about his involvement in an accident that killed two high school students.

"Police reports, court records, interviews with law enforcement personnel, and other sources have put the lie to many key sections of Frey's book," according to an article that appeared on http://www.thesmokinggun.com.

Frey did acknowledge some embellishments to The Smoking Gun but his only comments since the story came out have been in a posting on his website, defending his work. "I stand by my book, and my life," he wrote.

Also Tuesday, Doubleday issued a statement of support:

"In publishing Mr. Frey, we decided A Million Little Pieces was his story, told in his own way, and he represented to us that his version of events was true to his recollections."

"Recent accusations against him notwithstanding, the power of the overall reading experience is such that the book remains a deeply inspiring and redemptive story for millions of readers."

Doubleday spokeswoman Alison Rich acknowledged that the publisher is in "constant communication" with Frey, but declined to discuss the content of those conversations or any specific allegations about his work.

"We don't deem the allegations necessary to investigate," she said.

Schreiber won't confirm 'engagement' to Naomi

Los Angeles: Actor Leiv Schreiber has refused to comment on rumours that he had proposed to his girlfriend Naomi Watts, saying he doesn't discuss his private life with the media.

According to hollywood.com, the couple started dating in April and have recently been at the centre of engagement and pregnancy rumours. The two are currently vacationing with Watts' mother in Sydney.

When asked if the two were engaged, Schreiber said, "We don't discuss that with anybody. It's strange - well for me anyway - to be inundated with all this attention, and as a couple we have to struggle to keep our personal life personal."

Carmen Electra's Husband Refuses the Wrong Fan

Carmen Electra's husband, rocker Dave Navarro, narrowly escaped serious injury when a furious fan smashed up his dinner table after the star refused to pose for a photo with him.

The musician, who was eating a meal at the bar he owns with Tommy Lee and DJ Paul Oakenfold, was showered in glass during the violent incident after the 7ft man upturned his table in a rage.

Navarro - who is tee total - claims as well as refusing to take a photo of the man and his sister he had also declined a round of drinks from the fan.

He is quoted in America's New York Post newspaper as saying: "A seven-foot-tall, five-feet-wide guy asked me to take a picture with his sister and I politely declined. But after I refused a round of shots the man sent over, things turned ugly.

"The guy then loses it and turns over all the drinks and plates on my table, and they all go flying into the air and shatter as they crash into each other and onto the table, causing a rain of glass to fall upon me and my friends.

"Glass goes into my hair, clothes and slightly cuts up my arm."

Navarro's bodyguards quickly stepped into calm the man, who was escorted off the premises.

It's a Boy for Melissa Joan Hart

Melissa Joan Hart, best known as the star of TV's Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and her musician husband, Mark Wilkerson, welcomed their first child, a baby boy, on Wednesday, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

Mason Walter Wilkerson was born at 4:19 p.m. in Los Angeles, and weighed in at 9 lbs. exactly.

"He was a little stubborn, but all is well," the actress tells PEOPLE. "Everyone is well and we are all relieved."

When news of the star's pregnancy was reported last June, her mother, Paula Hart, told PEOPLE, "I'm thrilled to death. I'm so excited. Melissa is feeling great. So far, so good."

At her Nov. 28 baby shower, the mom-to-be and 35 guests gathered at Paula's San Fernando Valley home to decorate onesies, eat homemade lasagna and cupcakes and marvel at her bump. "I have this enormous belly," she told PEOPLE. "Everyone tells me I won't make it to January."

Hart, 29, and Wilkerson, 28, the lead singer and guitarist for the hard-rock trio Course of Nature, met when she introduced his band at the Kentucky Derby's Mint Jubilee cancer fund-raiser in Louisville, Ky., in May 2002. "It was love at first sight," Hart said. "We made eye contact, and my knees got weak."

They were married in Florence, Italy, on July 19, 2003. Since Sabrina had ended its seven-year run just three months earlier, the couple were eager to focus on their future. As Hart told PEOPLE, "we can start enjoying the rest of our lives together."

"It's our first event since we got engaged, so we wanted to step out and show it off," she told us about her new diamond and sapphire engagement ring at a recent Volkswagen party at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. "I've been saying 'my fiancé' for the first time tonight to people – it's crazy!"

Though the couple – who got engaged in Toronto on Christmas Eve – haven't set a wedding date, Spelling (who's separated from her husband of a year, actor-writer Charlie Shanian) already has kids on her mind. "Babies are next," she says. "We definitely want a family." Until then, she'll have plenty of practice: McDermott has 5-month-old daughter Lola and a 7-year-old Jack with estranged wife Mary Jo Eustace.

Oprah supports Frey

Powerful TV talk show host Oprah Winfrey threw her support to embattled author James Frey on Wednesday, saying a national uproar over whether he fictionalized parts of his best-selling memoir was "much ado about nothing."

Appearing as a surprise caller on CNN's "Larry King Live" after King had gently quizzed Frey for nearly an hour, Winfrey broke her silence over whether his "A Million Little Pieces" was still a choice of her book club and had her endorsement.

She said that even though the facts of the account of Frey's drug and alcohol addiction were being questioned, the book "still resonates with me" and called the controversy "much ado about nothing" because, as Frey told King, the disputed passages make up less than 5 percent of the book.

Talking to King on the phone just minutes before the show was to end, Winfrey said, "Everyone has been asking me to release a statement, and I first wanted to hear what James had to say and I didn't want that colored by any personal conversation that I've had.

"He's said he's had many conversations with my producers who do fully support him and obviously we support the book because we recognize that there have been thousands and hundreds of thousands of people whose lives have been changed by this book."

It was Winfrey's selection of the memoir for her book club that helped make it the biggest-selling nonfiction book in the United States last year, with more than 1.7 million copies sold in a paperback edition.


But she had been silent following weekend charges made by The Smoking Gun Web site that Frey had made up an account that he had spent three months in jail after trying to run over a policeman while on drugs.

The Smoking Gun said it could find no evidence of his having spent that much time in jail and that his auto accident consisted of running his car up on a curb.

Frey refused to directly confront whether the incident was made up or not and insisted that while some elements in the book were embellished, the book's emotional core was true.

"I hope the emotional truth of the book resonates with (readers)," he told King. "I couldn't have written it if I hadn't been through a lot of the things I talk about."

He added, "It's a memoir. It's an imperfect animal. ...I don't think it should be held up and scrutinized the way a perfect nonfiction documentary would be or a newspaper article."

Winfrey appeared to agree, telling King: "Whether or not the car's wheels rolled up on the sidewalk or whether he hit the police officer or didn't hit the police officer is irrelevant to me."

She added, "What is relevant is that he was a drug addict, spent years in turmoil, from the time he was 10 years old and tormenting himself and his parents, and out of that history to be the man that he is today and to take that message to other people and allow them to save themselves. That's what important about this book."

As for Frey, he insisted "The essential truth of (my) drug and alcohol addiction is there. The emotional truth is there. .... I think you will find people who will dispute every memoir ever written."

Readers calling publisher Random House's customer service line were told they could receive refunds if they had bought the book directly from the publishing house. Random House, a unit of German media conglomerate Bertelsmann AG, issued a statement saying that such refunds were standard procedure.

Bookseller Barnes & Noble Inc. also said it is standard practice to offer refunds for returned books.

But Publishers Weekly Senior Editor Charlotte Abbott called the Random House refunds unprecedented.
