Have Cruz and McConaughey Split?

Hollywood couple Penelope Cruz and Matthew McConaughey have sparked speculation they have split, after attending the Golden Globe Awards separately. The Spanish actress and Texan hunk started dating on the set of Sahara, just months after the Vanilla Sky beauty ended her relationship with Tom Cruise.

Despite both actors presenting awards at Monday's ceremony, Cruz posed alone on the red carpet and the couple weren't seen together for the remainder of the night.

I'm wagering it had something to do with the way he was man-handling Kelly Clarkson at the People's Choice Awards.

Jessica Simpson Rejects Adam Levine?!?!

Known for his melodious voice, the guest on Kanye’s Heard Em Say, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine has reportedly been snubbed by the Dukes of Hazards movie star. Despite rumours that she’s getting back with her husband tongues are wagging in regards to who’ll she befriend next. A source revealed to New York Daily News Levine was seen approaching Simpson and close friend Eva Mendes and revealed, "He came running over to Jessica and Eva, pulled up a chair and insinuated himself into their conversation." Even though the grapevine's suggesting the Maroon 5 frontman may have previously had a fling with the ‘Newlywed’, Levine was allegedly seen leaving Hollywood’s famous Chateau Marmont bar alone.

'Idol' Twins Charged With Forgery, Theft

They sang like angels for their audition on Tuesday's 'American Idol' premiere, but a pair of Memphis twins may sound more like jailbirds by the time the show goes live from Hollywood.

Terrell Brittenum, 28, has been in jail since Jan. 10 on an outstanding warrant for charges related to the illegal purchase of a car in Rockdale County, Ga., east of Atlanta.

He and his brother, Derrell, are accused of using another man's identity to buy a 2005 Dodge Magnum in June.

Derrell was expected to turn himself in on the same charges of forgery, theft by deception and financial identity fraud, The Commercial Appeal newspaper reported.

The brothers auditioned together in September for the hit TV show 'American Idol' and impressed the show's prickly judges to continue to the next round. Segments of the show have already been recorded and will air during the next few weeks.

Fox Broadcasting Co. refused to discuss the Brittenums or their status on the show.

The return of the show Tuesday drew its best-ever season premiere ratings with 35.5 million viewers. It was a 6 percent increase over last year's debut, according to preliminary Nielsen Media Research figures.

MACAULAY CULKIN'S FIRST BOOK SUCKS

Oh dear. The poor thing. Let's hope that the bad reviews don't trigger those suicidal thoughts again. Macaulay Culkin's new book, Junior, won't be winning any Pulitzer's anytime soon.

An exclusive first look at Macaulay Culkin's 'Junior,' in a review to be published in the Feb. 15 issue of Kirkus Reviews:

With Junior, an audaciously empty mishmash of poems, letters, comics, etc., former child star Culkin (of Home Alone fame) has managed to lower the already low bar set for celebrity fiction.

Culkin’s debut novel, to be published on March 15 by Miramax Books, kicks off with a five-question pop quiz meant to weed out any readers not quite up to snuff. Those who fail the quiz, Culkin writes, will not be allowed to go on. Reader, if you know what’s good for you, you will fail the quiz.

The book is essentially comprised of a couple hundred pages of semi-coherent diary entries coupled with a handful of scrawled drawings. The story, insofar as one exists, concerns a child star named Monkey-Monkey Boy and a guy, Junior, with no end of father issues. (People magazine readers will recognize autobiographical elements.)

Makes Ethan Hawke read like Philip Roth.

Howard's Gwen In Spidey III & "First Look" Failure to Launch Photos


Bryce Dallas Howard (Lady in the Water) is in negotiations to play Peter Parker's love interest Gwen Stacy in Columbia Pictures' Spider-Man 3, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sam Raimi is directing the movie, which is scheduled to roll this month.

Gwen is pivotal in Spider-Man lore as Peter's high-school crush, his first girlfriend and his first love. She ended up being kidnapped by the Green Goblin and died during a bridgetop battle in Amazing Spider-Man issue 121.

In the Spider-Man film franchise, Columbia put Mary Jane Watson, a later love interest of Peter's who was a model, in the Gwen role, casting Kirsten Dunst as the high-school crush. The movie featured the famous battle on the bridge with the Green Goblin, though a Hollywood ending was added, and the character survived.

Columbia is keeping a tight lid on the third movie's storyline, though it is known that Gwen is the third part of a love triangle and that the character does survive.

Tobey Maguire, Dunst and James Franco are reprising their roles, and Topher Grace and Thomas Haden Church have been cast as the villains.

Howard, the daughter of director Ron Howard, stars in M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming Lady in the Water and also headlined Shyamalan's The Village.

Paris is No Einstein (BIG SURPRISE!)

Jan. 19) -- TMZ has obtained a Paris Hilton deposition in which the heiress makes it painfully clear -- Greeks and geography are not her strong suits.

The deposition was taken last November, in connection with a defamation lawsuit filed by Zeta Graff against Ms. Hilton. Graff claims Hilton planted lies about her in the New York Post gossip column, Page Six. The item says Graff went "berserk" on a London dance floor last July and allegedly attacked Hilton, trying to remove Hilton's multi-million dollar necklace before being tossed from the club.

In her deposition, Hilton is asked about a companion that night whose first name was Terry. When asked if she knew his last name, Hilton replied: "It is like a weird Greek name. Like Douglas."

Hilton was also asked if she was aware that the article had been republished in various newspapers. Graff's lawyer, Paul Berra, asked, "Were there U.K. publications?" Hilton responded: "No... there is stuff in London." Hilton's lawyer, Larry Stein, jumped in: "London is a U.K. publication." Her retort: "Right. U.K. Whatever."

The deposition is filled with some pretty stunning comments from the stunning blonde. TMZ highly recommends that you download a copy and read it on a lounge chair during your next vacation. The following are three exerpts:

Paris on friendship:

"I meet so many people. I don't even know some of my friends' names."

Paris on women who stalk women:

"I would never say stalking. I'm not a dude. Like, I think a girl can only stalk a guy. She can't really stalk another girl."

Paris on e-mail:

"Whatever I write in e-mail, it doesn't mean anything. It is just words I write."

Hilton publicists fight urine claims
19/01/2006 - 09:08:21


Paris Hilton's publicists are trying to silence a Hawaiian taxi-driver who claims the socialite urinated in his cab.

Harden Jamison tells American tabloid National Enquirer the hotel heiress and Simple Life star was too drunk to notice she'd wet herself when he picked her and boyfriend Stavros Niarchos up after a party on Maui.

The disgusted cab driver claims he mopped up the mess with a towel and plans to use Hilton's own DNA as evidence against her.

Jamison has gone public with his story after getting threatened by Hilton's heavies, who hitched a ride in his cab, after making it known that he has a towel drenched with the socialite's urine.

He says: "They were all drunk and abusive. I kicked them out and flagged down a cop."

The cab driver claims one of Hilton's pals offered him $200 (€165.70) for the towel.

A spokesman for the socialite denies the incident.

RUMORED Janet Jackson tracklisting and title

Rachel Hunter is desperate

January 19, 2006 -- HERE we go again! Remember when Sean Lennon told PAGE SIX that he was lonely? Now, supermodel emeritus Rachel Hunter claims she can't find a date. The gorgeous blonde made her appeal to us yesterday: "I'm not dating anyone. All the decent guys are married. Do you know anyone?" Prospective daters must be employed, like children (Hunter has two from her marriage to Rod Stewart) and be ready for a make-over. Her new WE network reality show, "Style Me With Rachel Hunter," follows her search for the next great stylist. Interested suitors would do well to finagle an invite to Hunter's private viewing of her show tonight at Nikki Midtown on East 50th Street.

for you Andy Roddick fans...if there are any

They aren't playing mixed doubles, but Andy Roddick and Maria Sharapova appear to be an item Down Under.

The Melbourne Herald-Sun newspaper reported that Sharapova and Roddick have been spending time together away from the game, sparking rumors that the two are more than friends.

The Herald-Sun reported Sharapova left an IMG player party Sunday night to watch Roddick play poker, and also watched him play cards on Saturday and Wednesday nights, which lead to the rumors about two of the top players in the world.

Representatives for both players reportedly deny the pair are an item.

New Desperate Housewives Character!

Hmm...I wonder if this has anything to do with the show airing in China...

Free Image Hosting - www.supload.com

"Gwendoline Yeo is going to play a recurring character in season 2 as Gabrielle Solis' new maid, Xiao Mei on the hit show, Desperate Housewives. Since the scripts are under lock and key, we'll have to see how this unfolds in 2006."

Source

Heh, I remember her from "The Magic of Ordinary Days" (Skeet and Keri!) and 24.




I'm guessing that this character is the same one mentioned in rumors from a month ago, "...her name is Chin-Chi , she speaks a little English, and she'll stick around for quite some time." Chin-Chi was a HORRIBLE name; good thing they changed it. I wonder if they're going to change the "speaks a little English" part (Gwendoline speaks in a perfect American accent)...or maybe they're trying to go for the Sun (from Lost route), e.g. secretive Asian woman listening in on people's conversations...or maybe not.


Desperate Housewives is such an overrated show, and I don't think Chinese people are going to watch it more just because there's some random Chinese character in it.

Elfman: It's Not Polite to Be Rude


Turnoffs for Jenna Elfman: bratty stars.

The former "Dharma & Greg" star, who's in a new comedy about a single woman that will premiere on CBS this spring, says she's definitely not impressed with the attitudes of some people she sees in Hollywood.

"A lot of my peers that I've worked with, they're not on time," she said. "They think it's absolutely OK to have attitude and treat people like crap. And they think nothing of it. They have a sense of some sort of entitlement, where I don't know where that comes from."

Maybe it has something to do with not being brought up with much discipline, said Elfman, 34.

Her comments to reporters Wednesday briefly made Rob Hanning, executive producer of their new show, "Courting Alex," panic.

"I just want to give you the opportunity to clarify that you were not referring to anyone actually in our cast," he said.

"No," Elfman replied, "our cast is truly beautiful."

Has RACHAEL RAY met her match?

Has RACHAEL RAY met her match? The Food Network maven appears for the first time on "Iron Chef America," teaming up with Chef MARIO BATALI to take on competing Chefs BOBBY FLAY and GIADA DE LAURENTIIS in the Kitchen Stadium -- and ET is there for all the action!

"It was so intense!" Rachael tells ET. "That hour felt 30 times faster than my 30-minute meals. It went by so fast!"

When season three of "Iron Chef America" debuts February 26 on the Food Network, the host of such shows as "30-Minute Meals" and "Tasty Travels" steps into unknown territory -- and she was not looking forward to it.

"I was really nervous; I'm not a chef," says Rachael. "I don't belong on 'Iron Chef.' To be asked was honor enough, but I really didn't want to do it. Then I thought about it and I said, 'You're so frightened of that show, why don't you give it a shot. Food's food; so, you can't do fancy; you can do tasty!'"

Equipped with the secret ingredient of the day, Rachael and Chef Mario must scramble and put together various dishes using the ingredient as the 60-minute clock ticks away. Then, a panel of judges taste the dishes and rate them on flavor as well as presentation.

"It was really nerve-wracking making the food, but I though that the judging would be even more nerve-wracking," says Rachael, "and the judging was so much fun. I just really started enjoying the process once it got to the judging part."

So, considering it wasn't so bad after all, would Rachael appear on "Iron Chef America" again? "I think I'm safer in my little, simple kitchen where all I have to make are burgers and chit-chat for 30 minutes," she says with a smile. "My stomach is still flip-flopping. I don't know if I have the nerve for it."

Watch ET for more with Rachael Ray -- and see what went wrong in the "Iron Chef" kitchen!

Angelina you TRAMP!

As if things weren't bad enough for Jennifer Aniston already!

Hot 89.9 in Ottawa reports that a source from ferretnews says that while Brad Pitt almost immediately fell head over heels for Angelina Jolie on the set of the couple-action flick Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Jolie spent a little extra time playing the field first.

So who did the pouty-lipped trolip tempt and tease before taking the long trip to Pitt-ville? Well, it's none other than her supporting co-star from the film, and recent Aniston squeeze, Vince Vaughn. A source says it didn't last much longer than a weekend away from the set but until now, and for very obvious reasons, details of "Vincelina" were kept on the qt.

I've heard that Jennifer has been pretty upset recently, I thought it was because of Brad and Angelina's baby....maybe I was mistaken! The girl just can't catch a break!

Another career for Federline?

Sorry if it has already been posted, I couldn't find it. This is my first post so bear with me.

Kevin Federline reportedly wants to open a nightclub — but there’s a minor problem.

Britney Spears’ hubby’s singing career hasn’t exactly set the world on fire, and now he wants to go into the nightclub business, according to In Touch Weekly, which reports that there’s a bit of a hitch because he would need to get the financing from his wife, who’s none-too-happy with the idea of her party-loving spouse spending his time in a nightclub.

“Kevin wants to open up a club in Las Vegas,” an insider tells the mag.

But a pal says, “The last place Britney wants Kevin to be spending his nights is in a nightclub, even if he’s the owner.”

Still, Federline has supposedly persuaded his wife to talk to her buddies, the Maloof family, who own the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, about the possibility of his opening a nightclub there.

11-year-old Japanese "singer" with F-cups (by Japanese standards) to possibly quit modeling

Saaya Irie, the name synonymous with the Japanese underground culture, may never put on a bathing suit again. The 11-year old Japanese girl best known for her scandalous F-cups vaulted into world-wide fame through an article printed in the Japan Times which stated her presence may ease tension between China and Japan.

The article mentions the busty Saaya’s picture posted on a popular Chinese Internet forum with a slogan reading: “"An 11-year-old Japanese girl with large breasts has a proclamation for all Chinese people! Dear elder brothers, a beautiful young Japanese girl is beseeching you. Please stop these anti-Japanese hijinks. If you don't, I won't like you anymore."

To make the entire ordeal more sordid, the slogan continues that her breasts would "rise up" if the people "unite for the sake of China's democracy."

The Rancho Mirage father of controversial Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff is responding to actor George Clooney for what he’s describing as a “glib and ridiculous attack” on his son.

Frank Abramoff, in a letter addressed to Clooney and sent to The Desert Sun this morning, said he was watching the Golden Globes Monday night when Clooney, during his acceptance speech for best supporting actor, thanked Jack Abramoff “just because” and made a comment about the lobbyist’s name.

“Who would name their kid Jack with the last words ‘off’ at the end of your last name? No wonder that guy is screwed up,” Clooney said during the internationally televised awards show.

Nana Mary pulled a fast one on her daughter....

Winters Wed Before She Died

Movie star Shelley Winters realized her dream of marrying boyfriend Gerry DeFord hours before she died this past weekend. The Poseidon Adventure star's partner of 18 years called off the couple's wedding plans after Winters' daughter Vittoria Gassman publicly opposed the marriage. Gassman, who took charge of her mother's estate while she battled drug problems, refused to give up her right to the actress' fortune and Winters eventually decided to give up on her wedding dreams. But she became Mrs. Gerry DeFord on her death bed when actress pal Sally Kirkland, a legally ordained Los Angeles minister, wed the couple on Friday night. It was 85-year-old Winters' fourth marriage and DeFord's first. Winters died of heart failure 10 hours after exchanging vows.


I scoured Google for a pic of Shelley Winters as Nana Mary to no avail. You wouldn't believe all these people who have old grandmas named Nana Mary.

Jolie Sonogram Removed from eBay

enough of this OC drama, back to BRANGELINA

A sonogram picture purporting to be Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's baby has been
removed from auction Web site eBay.com.

The item, listed as "Angelina Jolie's 4-5 month fetus sonogram picture," was
pulled after eBay bosses decided it "violated their policy on celebrity
materials."

The item generated over 50 bids in two days, reaching $500 minutes before the
online auction was closed.

Spokesman Hani Durzy says, "We have pulled it off the site. This listing was
being marketed as coming specifically from Angelina Jolie. There was no
indication in the listing that she had given agreement to this.

"We took a look at it pretty quickly and felt it violated our policy on
celebrity materials."

Brokeback Mountain is #1 in the box office...I'm NOT kidding!

Whoa...who knew that the Golden Globes would convince so many people to watch the movie?

Daily Chart So Far

The gist of the link is this: Before its Golden Globe wins, Brokeback Mountain earned $1,236,425 on Monday, not even cracking the top five for the day (for the entire MLK weekend, it placed ninth overall). After its wins? Tuesday, it earned $735,000, placing it at NUMBER ONE for the day. Wednesday, it earned $735,000 AGAIN to place it at number one for that day. Keep in mind that it is still playing in only 683 theaters, while its closest competitor, Glory Road is playing in 2,222 theaters. If this trend continues into this weekend, I can't wait for the reaction when Brokeback Mountain reaches the top spot.

Whoever said that "no one watches these movies" PLEASE DON'T SPEAK IN PUBLIC AGAIN.
