Britney Spears has reportedly registered online at Petit Tresor for thousands of dollars worth of baby gifts, including a $1,200 chandelier for her new baby's room.
"Oh, it's not a fake, she's having a baby shower soon and has told friends that they can order gifts from the site," a source tells the Scoop, adding, "It's not like she's expecting her friends to buy everything for the baby. She's already spent like $30,000 at the store." And the accessories and furniture strongly suggest that, as rumored, Spears is expecting a girl: although the chandelier features little airplanes, there's a preponderance of pink and frilly goodies among the merchandise."
I was thinking of buying my baby a $1,200 chandelier too but then I realized I'd rather just tape some lightbulbs together and spend the other $1,190 on something more useful. Although I can't even imagine would could be more useful than a chandelier for a baby. Maybe a Segway for the potted plant? Some speakers for the fridge?
I went to the Petit Tresor and looked up her registry. The cheapest thing on the list is a $65.00 stuffed animal. See for yourselves.
Two more. Thanks Holly.
It could be a fake, I have no idea, but it is still fun to look at.
WHICH TV star is doing a little too much cocaine? The actor recently went to the Soho Grand where he "did lines out in the open bar," and at the Emmys he "wore a dirty brown shirt and smelled of drugs" . . . WHICH recently separated couple liked to have another woman join them in the bedroom? Sadly for the husband, his wife liked the women more than him - and when he finally banned others from his bed, his wife realized she was no longer attracted to him at all.
the second one is kate hudson & chris black crowes. there've been rumors for years about them picking up other women to screw in threesomes.
the first one is making me scan every emmy pic i can find. (so far, its not piven, who was my first guess... no dirty brown shirt)

He's cute. I'm surprised that Pharrell managed to be in a video and not have even one video girl hang off him.
"I already know the actor to play my part."
"Who..Who do you want to play the part."
"Johnny Depp? You know, I was just thin..thinking about this. And I was thinking, well who would uh play the role. DEPP was one of the people who came to mind."
"No way (laughs)."
"Absolutely. I'm not making that up, I'm not bullshitting."
"You know why? That's incredible, it's because he reminds me so much of me, and he looks like me, and he would play the part perfectly. I have his film when he did Willy Wonka..."
"Very similar to my personality except for the fact that Willy Wonka did not know how to treat children. He had no knowledge of how to be around children. But the other thing is, I saw him, I've seen him in films over and over. He was in a very good film called Secret Window, and he played the part of this writer..."
"That's right. How was he, I haven't seen..."
"His look, it's his age, it's the fact that he's an attractive man and he fits my part perfectly. I don't know why it came to me that he..."
"It's instinct! That's instinct."
"That's incredible, but YES, he fits it perfect, and no other, I can't think of no other person..."

So many things wrong with this conversation. John Karr's insanity, the professor (who has been interviewing Karr for a book) and his feeding the insanity, Johnny Depp being a part of this conversation at all. Depp must be washing in Lysol, screaming "Not like Karr, NOT LIKE KARR."
Edit: I agree that Karr is not celebrity gossip; I also hated the posts about him in here. But Johnny Depp makes this qualify... a little.

Football star Matt Leinart is going to be father. The Arizona Cardinals quarterback and USC women's basketball player Brynn Cameron are expecting a baby in the fall.
Leinart, one of PEOPLE's Most Beautiful People this year, graduated from USC in December 2005 and will continue to live in Los Angeles and Arizona. Cameron, a 20-year-old USC junior, will sit out this upcoming basketball season.
"It's an exciting time in their life," says a source, who knows both parties. "They both have support from their families."
The Heisman trophy winner, 23, who is a close pal of Nick Lachey and was linked romantically to Paris Hilton in the past, is also currently raising money to start the Matt Leinart Foundation, a learning center for underprivileged and disabled children.
"Kids are important to Matt," his rep said regarding the foundation. "He really wants to help kids who can't help themselves."
I won't go into details about the movie and junk but it was amazing! Shia/Channing/Robert Downey Jr and the rest of the cast gave amazing performances. After the movie the director (Dito Montiel) was supposed to do a Q&A but Shia Labeouf showed up to join him. Made things about 100000x better. They answered about 10 questions and then after the movie I got to talk to Shia.
As if meeting Shia wasn't already cool, I'm leaving the theater and James Franco was standing outside with one of the blonde girls he came with. I just had to go up to him being a huge F&G fan. He looked gorgeous but stoned/drunk as hell. He always does though. He was nice about it, just seemed a bit out of it. ( Collapse )

August 30, 2006 -- SOPHIA Loren is way past her shelf life as a sex goddess at age 71, according to designer Stefano Gabbana. "I don't think much of Sophia Loren posing for the recent Pirelli calendar. What was that all about? I mean, she is a beautiful woman - but a beautiful elderly woman," the Dolce & Gabbana czar tells London's Sunday Times. "You need to know when to say enough is enough and make room for the next generation."
August 30, 2006 -- GWEN Stefani has had it with the MTV Video Music Awards. The "No Doubt" cutie is said to be "boycotting" tomorrow's show because of the shoddy treatment she got last year. "She had a ton of nominations and was under the impression she would be taking home at least one award," our insider said. "But every award, except that lame best-dressed award, went to Kelly Clarkson, and every time Kelly won, the camera went straight to Gwen. She felt set up." Stefani also thought she was going to close the show - another honor that went to Clarkson. Stefani's rep declined comment.
Turning "fine art" into what may be the most subjective term in the world, a bronze sculpture entitled Suri's Bronzed Baby Poop, inspired by TomKitten's first solid meal and the fecal matter that presumably followed, will go on display Wednesday.
Don't worry, no actual poop was harmed in the making of this sculpture.
"Babies mostly breastfeed for the first four months, so a baby's first meal of solid food may be a baby's first meal at the dinner table," said David Kesting, the director of Capla Kesting Fine Art, located in Brooklyn's Williamsburg gallery district. "A bronzed cast of baby's first poop can be a meaningful memento for the family."
Oh for you, perhaps. The shiny sculpture will be at the gallery at least through September (unless people riot beforehand) and will be up for auction on eBay, with proceeds going to the March of Dimes foundation. Limited edition plaster replicas will also be for sale.
Daniel Edwards, who previously brought us Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston, the sculpture of a very pregnant and very nude
Britney Spears giving birth on a bearskin rug, is the man responsible for this idea, which according to a press release was also inspired by the successful children's book Everybody Poops.
Well, everybody does a lot of things, most of which should never be cast in bronze. But the Capla gallery apparently knows that, if you're going to showcase a replica of diaper detritus, you'd better have some darn good underlying social criticism or a tongue-in-cheek, wink-wink joke in mind.
"It's partially a statement on modern media that 'celebrity poop' has more entertainment value than health, famine or other critical issues facing society and governments today," the Capla crew said in a statement, "and also the absurdity of the media coverage on Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' new baby, Suri Cruise, which has reached stellar proportions, eclipsing far more notable events with more substance."
Speaking of which, the masses will reportedly get their first glimpse of four-month-old Suri in Vanity Fair this fall, courtesy of celebrity photographer Annie Leibowitz. It's been 133 days, per Us Weekly's handy-dandy still-no-Suri clock, since the child's birth.
Umm...this deserves a big WTF?
She's used to receiving lavish gifts from besotted admirers, but even Mariah Carey didn't expect £3million of diamonds to arrive before her sell-out concert in New York.
The chart beauty was preparing to greet 20,000 fans in Madison Square Garden last Wednesday when a special envoy arrived, dispatched by Prince Azim, the son of the Sultan of Brunei, who's worth £25billion.
"We were sent by private jet to deliver this gift," a representative of the 24-year-old, who's third in line to the Sultanate, announced - as he presented an eight-carat flawless diamond and platinum necklace and matching ring.
It sure beats a bunch of wilting roses from a garage forecourt!
Overjoyed by the gift, the singer, who has sold more than 100 million records, channelled her pleasure into a fabulous show.
Her amazing set featured 18 hits and guest appearances from rap moguls Diddy and Jay-Z, who was so impressed by the diva's glassshattering vocals that he bowed down to Mariah on stage.
Highlights included Fly Like A Bird, featuring a full gospel choir, and Dream Lover [sic], which was dedicated to rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard who died following a drugs overdose in 2004.
Fan Jake Wheelan from New Jersey, told us: "I came to see Madonna a few weeks ago and paid $360 (£190) for my ticket. Here, I've got the best seats for less than half the price - and the show's 100 times more fun."
The generous superstar was so thrilled to be back in her home city she splashed out £30,000 on Cristal champagne for her family and friends - including 3am - at an exclusive aftershow bash. More than 150 revellers, including her brother Morgan and former opera singer mum Patricia, helped Mariah celebrate her triumph.
Sipping a glass of Pinot Grigio wine - "Champagne's bad for my voice so I can't have any on tour. Make sure you have some, though!"
Mariah told us she's sleeping for 15 hours a day in a humidification chamber. It is to ensure her eight-octave voice can survive the rigours of her Adventures Of Mimi tour.
Breaking doctor's orders to speak exclusively to us as we partied till 4am at New York's 77 bar, she said: "I sleep in a room full of humidifiers and am on total voice rest between shows - I'm not even supposed to speak. It's very hard but this tour means a lot to me and I want everyone who comes to have an amazing time."
Reflecting on her astonishing comeback - her Emancipation Of Mimi album was the biggest-selling record of 2005, just three years after she was paid £15million to quit Virgin Records - she said: "Before I go on stage I try not to think about the dark times or it can all get too much. I know I'm blessed and I'm grateful to every person that stuck by me."
She went on: "I wish I could take this tour to the UK - I love that place, but the timing just didn't work. I've got to start filming a movie called Tennessee later this year, then I start work on a new album. The UK fans are some of my favourites, though, and I want to get back there as soon as I can." You and us both, Mimi!
So when are we going to stop playing the Mariah-Carey-can-still-sing-like-Mariah-C
Kristin Cavallari, 19, has something to get off her chest: She’s over ex Brody Jenner. On August 24, the Laguna Beach star stepped out in L.A. in a t-shirt that read: YOU CAN HAVE HIM.
“She has completely moved on, and that says it all,” a Cavallari pal tells Us Weekly. “She has had that shirt forever and finally had a reason to wear it.” The message was no doubt directed at Jenner’s new girlfriend, Nicole Richie, 24, who was by his side to celebrate his 23rd birthday at West Hollywood club Privilege on August 22 (where Cavallari made a cameo, but did not cross paths with Richie). Not that there’s any bad blood between the women.
Says a Cavallari insider: “Kristin thinks Nicole is really nice and is friendly with her.”
For his part, Jenner has his own take on the tee’s cryptic message. “I’m guessing she’s talking about her dog, Bentley, which she left at my house months ago,” he tells Us. “I’m happy to have him.”

Teen Vogue’s December issue is going to be double the fun: sources say Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen recently sat for two different December covers of the Condé Nast teen title. Though the twins, who starred in the Badgley Mischka ad campaign this past spring, are rarely apart, the two definitely know how to stand on their own. Ashley made a splash on the July 2005 cover of Harper’s Bazaar, setting the bar for seeing the pair in singular form. Mary Kate soon followed suit on the cover of W this past January, and will grace the cover of Paper magazine’s December issue as well, as part of a story with fellow Factory Girl castmate and boho pioneer Sienna Miller. Though Mary Kate interned with Annie Leibovitz, it’s highly unlikely that the famed shutterbug shot the twins for Teen Vogue. A spokeswoman for the magazine had no comment.
Stephen Gyllenhaal says ‘no’ to amazon and ‘yes’ to small online bookseller to sell his book
For any author – new or unknown – the phrases ‘you can get it on Amazon or BN.com’ are virtually mandatory when promoting and launching a book. Until now. One famous Hollywood film director has chosen to have his first book of poetry sold exclusively by a small new online company, AuthorsBookshop.com.
"I'm for anything that helps out struggling authors," says Stephen Gyllenhaal, director of the acclaimed films 'Paris Trout' and 'Losing Isaiah,' husband of Oscar-nominated screenwriter Naomi Foner and father of actors Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal--and now author of 'Claptrap: Notes from Hollywood.'
“Just like in the movie business, the old way of getting your work to the public is breaking down,” adds his publisher, Cantara Christopher. “The big impersonal online retailers used to be the only alternative for small presses. Now it’s time to give places like AuthorsBookshop.com a chance to let independent authors like Stephen find their audience.”
Based in Baltimore, Maryland, AuthorsBookshop.com is at the vanguard of the new wave of independent publishing. Higher profits and fast, friendly efficient service are the chief draws for authors and small press publishers. For customers, it’s the thrill of discovering gems they might not discover anywhere else. A newcomer to the independent publishing movement, AuthorsBookshop.com won’t replace Amazon or BN.com—at least for now.
And for now, it’s the only place to find hidden gems like 'Claptrap.'

Little Britain aiming for huge remake in America
THE hit comedy Little Britain is to be remade as an all-American show by the cutting-edge US broadcaster HBO.
Matt Lucas and David Walliams are to adapt their outrageous comic creations for American viewers under a deal with the cable channel behind the award-winning The Sopranos and Sex and the City.
The search is on to find the urban American equivalent of the schoolgirl nightmare Vicky Pollard and a suitable deep South locale for the only gay in the village. The duo will work with American writers and Simon Fuller, the British entrepreneur behind Pop Idol, will oversee the show.
The sketches could not be remade on network American television because federal broadcasting rules result in $500,000 (£265,000) fines for material considered indecent.
But Lucas and Walliams could attract up to ten million viewers for an adapted version of a show that the US Entertainment Weekly called “joyously off-kilter, manufactured for maximum offensiveness”.

The SO SICK singer's publicist has slammed reports the singer will announce he is gay during a New York City press conference this week (begs28AUG06) and insists that he will also not be coming out in the latest issue of Essence magazine.
Ne-Yo, real name SHAFFER CHIMERE SMITH, was forced to address the claims after an e-mail was circulated on the internet purportedly including quotes from the interview, which are attributed to a woman named BARBRA.
A Def Jam representative says, "It's completely false. There isn't a staff member by that name at Essence, nor is Ne-Yo going to be featured in the October issue of the magazine."

(Aug. 29) - Is Sumner M. Redstone crazy like a fox?
Movie industry executives may be forgiven for thinking that the Viacom chairman was mad to let Tom Cruise go after a 14-year relationship simply because Mr. Cruise seemed a little off balance. After all, the movies made by Viacom’s Paramount Pictures studio and the actor’s production company earned more than $2.5 billion at the box office.
Yet, if you ask economists and other academics that study the movie industry, Mr. Redstone’s decision was, in financial terms, spot on. The best reason to get rid of Mr. Cruise or, for that matter, Mel Gibson , or Lindsay Lohan , is not their occasional aberrant behavior. They, like most marquee names in Hollywood, are simply not worth the expense.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm sick of "superstars". As far as I'm concerned, every star should be famous for a maximum of three years...either that or decades depending upon their actual talent. But pop culture value should last only three years. I don't care beyond that.

The claws are out on the set of Access Hollywood, where an inside source says perky host Nancy O'Dell and sexy correspondent Maria Menounos are each going for the jugular.
"It's a real catfight," the source titters. "They refuse to work together and hate being in the same room with each other. Makeup and hair staffers have to schedule the times far apart!"
The feud began when Nancy, 40, griped to the show's brass that "Maria isn't interested in being a journalist. She just wants to be a star," the source says. Nancy further complained that Maria, 28, a former actress, received special treatment, got more air time and was given extra days off to pursue working in films.
Not one to keep quiet, Maria counters that Nancy is simply jealous because Maria's "younger and prettier," the source says. Meow!
Now speculation is rampant on the set that Nancy is secretly pursuing new projects outside of Access Hollywood. "She knows her high value and she's tired of having to fight for her own show," the insider warns. "There's interest in her from other shows and she feels the time may be right to pursue those options."

Sin City just got a little more sinful.
Yesterday the Mayor of Las Vegas proclaimed August 29,2006 Paris Hilton Day and gave the budding popstar the key to the city. News of the impending apocalypse to follow.
Comedian Jeff Beacher introduced the heiress in front of a packed crowd at a Vegas block party.
Hilton proclaimed her love for Vegas saying it's her "favorite place in the world to come to party." Considering her good time girl reputation, that's a huge compliment.
Afterwards, Paris did what she likes to do best in Vegas and partied the night away at Pure nightclub.

Though she was instructed not to talk until her voice was healed, Papa Joe Simpson explained why she tried her luck, saying, "We've done the best we could to sit on her and say don't talk and be still, and you know, let time pass. This is her moment. This record is from her heart -- it's something she wants to share with her fans. This is her moment for her to be excited."
That’s the suggestion being made by the “Stepford Wives” star’s rep — after a mag paid $20,000 for a pic of the svelte star showing a bit of a belly.
A mag called New Deal paid for the pics, according to The Australian, and the deal comes a year after it was incorrectly reported that Kidman was preggers by her now-hubby, singer Keith Urban.
“Afraid they wasted their money,” Kidman’s rep, Catherine Olim, told The Scoop. “[Kidman's] not pregnant.” Olim pointed out that the star wouldn’t be “shooting a film, traveling to Rome for another film, then shooting ANOTHER film if she were” with child.
“Incidentally, I’m virtually certain paparazzi are distorting photos to make her look pregnant,” Olim added. “I’ve seen her, she’s her regular slender self.”
