TLC sets obesity reality series

The network behind "Little People, Big World" is taking on another group of people who don't quite fit in the regular society.

TLC has ordered a six-episode series that chronicles the lives of a morbidly obese family facing everyday realities.

The half-hour docu series, tentatively titled "One Big Happy Family," hails from RDF USA, whose senior vp development and current Mike Duffy created the show.

He drew on his own experience.

"Growing up, we had a problem with obesity, and I know how it feels to be fat," Duffy said.

Duffy's inspiration is his father who, at age 60, lost 200 pounds.

"That changed the entire dynamic of my family," he said. Obesity is always is a family issue, but "watching television, it occurred to me that there is a void for programming where we deal with obesity in the family unit," he added.

Duffy, who is exec producing "One Big Happy Family" with RDF's Chris Coelen and showrunner Julia Silverton, set out to find a family who wanted to make a change in their lives and found it just outside of Charlotte, N.C.

The family to be chronicled on the show consists of a 40-year-old man weighing 340 pounds; his 35-year-old wife, who is close to 400 pounds; and their 330- and 340-pound teenage kids.

The documentary will tell each of their stories in first-person, with a special attention on the children, a boy and a girl.

"High school is hard enough to deal with -- imagine what it would be like to be morbidly obese," Duffy said.

He dismissed suggestions that the series might be exploitative.

"This is a very loving family," he said. "They are dedicated to losing the weight because they communicate as well as love each other so much."

But in trying to drop the pounds, they will rely on each other.

"This is not a game show where contestants have TV trainers and obesity specialists everyday as they are competing for a $250,000 prize," Duffy said, referring to NBC's popular reality series "The Biggest Loser."

He compared "One Big Happy Family" to "Little People, Big World."

" 'Little People, Big World' is about little people living in a big world. This is about big people living in a little world -- fat people living in a skinny world," Duffy said.

Jon Gosselin Didn't Start Dating Until After Divorce

When Hailey Glassman arrived at her parents home in New City, N.Y., on May 4 for an early Mother's Day surprise, she had a surprise of her own: Jon Gosselin, star of Jon & Kate Plus 8, was staying there.

Why? Gosselin, 32, a family friend since Hailey's father, plastic surgeon Lawrence Glassman, performed Kate Gosselin's tummy tuck operation following the birth of her sextuplets, was trying to escape the tensions at the home he shared with Kate in Wernersville, Pa.

According to a source close to Jon Gosselin, "Jon was heartbroken, totally heartbroken. Kate told him to take a hike."

The source says Jon and Hailey, already acquaintances, began their romance only after Kate filed for divorce on June 20.

According to the source. although the public did not know it, Jon and Kate actually split up late last year: "She said she wanted her life. She said she was done. It came out of the blue."

Soon afterwards, Jon moved out of the couple's bedroom and slept elsewhere in the house – and started going out to clubs and bars.

Reporters spotted him out with 23-year-old teacher Deanna Hummer last spring, but there was never an affair between the two, the Jon source insists. As the trouble at home grew unavoidable, Jon moved out of the main house and into the apartment above the Gosselin's three-car garage.

Today, Jon and Kate talk to each other only about their kids, the source says. And now that Jon has rented an apartment in New York City, says the source, expect to see Glassman and Gosselin spending time together in Manhattan.

poor gwyneth paltrow :'(

GWYNETH PALTROW is reportedly seething after movie bigwigs favoured Iron Man 2 co-star SCARLETT JOHANSSON over her for the movie's promo pics. The actress - who returns as the superhero's PA Pepper Potts in the sequel - is said to be angry that new recruit Johansson is stealing her limelight.

Gwyneth is nowhere to be seen as stars ROBERT DOWNEY JR, MICKEY ROURKE and Johansson pose for publicity shots in character. A source told a paper: "Gwyneth was afraid she'd be upstaged by Scarlett and not being in the campaign was the final straw. "She is furious she's been left out."

However, a spokesman for the Oscar winner was quick to quash rumours. He said: "She was not at all upset. The fans will get to see more of Pepper Potts as we get closer to the film's release next May."

It's not the first time reports have surfaced of friction between Gwyneth and Scarlett. In May we revealed that sparks were flying between the pair following reports Gwyneth had grown tired of Scarlett's demands on set.

Swimmer Michael Phelps leaves the pool at the end of a training session in Riccione, northern Italy, on Friday, July 17, 2009, in preparation for Rome's 2009 World Swimming Championships

Phelps will swim only three individual events in Rome — the 200 freestyle, and 100 and 200 butterfly — plus all three relays. At the U.S. national championships in Indianapolis last week, Phelps set a world record in the 100 butterfly, although he pulled out of the 100 free with a sore neck. Source

Review of Britneys First Concert in Russia

Britney Spears Performs her First Russian Concert

SAINT PETERSBURG: Pop princess Britney Spears performed yesterday her first concert in Russia when she takes her “Circus” tour to Saint Petersburg, part of the singer’s first major tour in years, organisers said.

“There’s a huge interest in the concert,” said Marianna Lyubina, a spokeswoman for Saint Petersburg-based Planeta-Plyus promotion company. Ticket prices range from 1,500 rubles ($47) to 25,000 rubles (786 dollars) and the most expensive and cheapest tickets were sold out fastest, said Lyubina.

“The Circus starring Britney Spears” tour got under way in New Orleans in March, the singer’s first major tour in five years.

“I always wanted to hear her and most importantly see her live,” said Saint Petersburger Yulia Ilyinskaya, who plans to attend the Sunday evening concert with her husband Boris.

“She’s such a symbol of pop music, almost like Madonna and the late Michael Jackson,” she added. Spears will arrive in Saint Petersburg to play a one-and-a-half-hour concert for an audience of some 15,000 in Russia’s former imperial capital and will leave immediately after, Lyubina added.

Will Smith's Daughter, Willow Smith, To Guest Star On "True Jackson VP"


8-year-old Willow Smith is set to make her television  debut in Nickelodeon’s “True Jackson VP” on July 25th. As the daughter of two movie stars, Willow is certainly no stranger to the big screen.   However, this will be  the young star’s first time on the small screen.

“I like TV because they laugh and then I laugh and then I do it again,” Willow explained of her television debut to Access Hollywood. “It’s a big happy family.”

“I really want to do this again because it’s really, really easy to work and have fun at the same time,” she said.

Willow’s dad, actor Will Smith, has even given his daughter some few tips.

“He’s giving me advice like ‘ Willow, stay in the moment! You have this, you got it down. Just stay in the moment. OK, now go out there and kill it,’” she revealed to Access Hollywood.

Willow will play a younger version of Keke’s character, True Jackson, in the upcoming episode.


Primeval: still dead in UK, might be reborn in the US

WITH the third and final season of Primeval out on DVD, fans are waiting for news on plans to stop the show becoming totally extinct.

Impossible Pictures, which makes the dino-drama, had sold the movie rights to Warner Bros and has also been in talks for a US version of the series.

The show was screened in the UK on ITV1 until it was axed last month.

Impossible founder Tim Haines has clarified the reasons for its cancellation and has also explained what they have in mind for the American version.

Haines was speaking in a recent article in Broadcast Now, which has just been drawn to my attention.

He said: "There was a lot of talk when Primeval was cancelled that it must have been because it is a big show, with lots of CGI and special effects.

"That's not the case. ITV wasn't paying the whole costs anyway but we offered to lower the price further and bring in 50 per cent of the funding with co-production deals. It would still have been been getting a show worth more than £1million for less than £600,000."

Iron Man 2's one step closer (and i'm about to break!)

Iron Man 2 Wraps on Schedule
Principal photography ends on much anticipated sequel!
Posted: 2009-07-18 Updated: 2009-07-18 14:07:29
By John Cerilli

The cameras started rolling on April 6 and filming ended today, July 18. After 71 days of shooting, “Iron Man 2” wrapped principal photography—right on schedule!

So how did it go? Was it tougher getting “Iron Man 2” shot than it was “Iron Man?” To find out, we went directly to one of the key players in the Marvel movie world, Kevin Feige, Producer of "Iron Man 2" and President of Marvel Studios!

"Shooting 'Iron Man 2' was a fantastic experience and we couldn't be happier. Although there were many challenges in making this film, having Jon Favreau, Robert Downey, Gwyneth Paltrow and almost the entire crew from the first film back on board,(lol!) allowed us to hit the ground running as everyone was instantly familiar with each other from day one,” Feige told Marvel.com. “This dynamic allowed us to get done what we needed on a day to day basis and was a big factor in why we finished slightly ahead of schedule.”

Of course, we all know by now there’s also a bunch of new A-List actors interacting with the crew from the first film to make “Iron Man 2,” but according to Feige, it never became a concern.

“Scarlett Johansson, Mickey Rourke, Sam Rockwell and especially Don Cheadle all stepped right in and meshed well with our returning cast,” he said.

Additionally, the first time around on “Iron Man” afforded them keen knowledge when it came to producing key aspects of “Iron Man 2.”

”From our experience on the first film, we learned what works and doesn't work in terms of shooting practical versus CGI especially with the Iron Man suit,” Feige explained. “This enabled us to be much more efficient in many departments, making it a much smoother experience.”

But if you think making a film of this magnitude isn’t without its own particular obstacles, guess again.

"What’s more difficult in shooting a sequel is that expectations are much higher for this film and we really want to top what we did on the first film,” he said. “Every day involved working extremely hard in order to improve upon what we did on the first film."

So now with “Iron Man 2” in the can, what happens before we all get to see “Iron Man 2” on May 7, 2010?

"The next step for us is beginning the post production process which is extensive and filled with its own set of challenges,” Feige said. “It is also a very exciting time because you get to see all the hard work from the hundreds of cast and crew members begin to come to life."

ITV Superfails to commit

Special report by Morag Cuddeford-Jones

While Supernatural season five has been given a USA airdate of September 10, there is uncertainty over whether the next instalment of the demon-slaying drama will be shown in the UK.

Ratings have continued to rise and awards are starting to pour in for the show and its two leads, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, but UK digital channel ITV2 has, at this point, not picked up the next season.

Collapse )

I think it's probably too early to really be worried about this, but I will rage like a mother effer if they actually fail to pick it up. About Jared and G.I. Joe though, I have to say - if it's true - I'm kind of glad. The movie looks awful. Boy needs to recognise that nobody gets famous by covering themselves in shit. Except for that kid from Slumdog Millionaire, I guess.



King of Twitter Getting his own Reality Show: Shaq Vs.

NBA star Shaquille O'Neal is getting ready to multitask.

The four-time hoops champion, who joins the Cleveland Cavaliers next season, will star in Shaq Vs., an ABC reality series that pits him against top athletes in their own sports.

Filming begins Wednesday in Pittsburgh, where Shaq takes on Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in football. Future hour-long episodes will pit him against Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya, St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols, tennis pro Serena Williams and beach volleyball Olympians Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh. O'Neal, 37, says he also hopes to book pal Lance Armstrong for a cycling competition once the Tour de France ends.

The series is set to premiere Aug. 18 and will air Tuesdays at 9 ET/PT.

New pics from the set of 'Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang'

emma thompson

With a prosthetic nose and lumpy middle, onlookers would be forgiven for staring at this figure in all-black drab dress. The greying hair and make-up free face make the woman in question seem rather unfortunate in the aesthetics department. However on closer inspection it becomes clear that not only is this person in fancy dress but it is none other than Oscar-winner Emma Thompson.

Spotted getting into the character of Nanny McPhee for the second film in the planned trilogy, the 50-year-old was back in the garb of the famously plain nanny - although she appeared to be missing her snaggle-tooth. Set 100 years after the events of the first film, the much-loved character takes on children who have been evacuated from their home during World War Two as her charges. The Much Ado About Nothing star decided to film the Nanny McPhee sequel - named The Big Bang - instead of working on the last Harry Potter film, The Deathly Hallows. She explained her decision earlier this year: 'It’s about two families - a family of country children, and a family of town children, both during the war. So it’s about evacuees, and the father is away at war. "The Harry Potters are great big franchises that are something I’m not emotionally attached to or necessarily particularly creatively attached to. 'That’s more like doing a turn, whereas the Nanny McPhees are something I’ve written. The art is in those films, they’re very handmade, they’re something that’s very close to me. Those are the ones I really care about.'

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Dame Maggie Smith have both signed up for the film and Rhys Ifans is set to take on the role as the villain.

Michael Jackson: Sony nearing deal for feature film using rehearsal footage

There's a bidding war going on for big-screen rights to Michael Jackson's final rehearsal footage, and according to reports in Variety and the Los Angeles Times, Sony Pictures is close to sealing the deal with an offer of over $50 million. AEG Entertainment reportedly has up to 80 hours of footage from Jackson's rehearsals for his planned "This Is It!" comeback concerts, which he continued working on through the day before his June 25 death. In addition, the feature film -- which could be out as soon as this fall -- would reportedly include interstitial videos shot for the concert series. High School Musical director Kenny Ortega, who helped plan the concerts and shot the footage, is rumored as the feature film's potential director; he's also set to direct "a prime-time television special based around staging and choreography that Jackson personally created" for the concerts, according to the Times.

Given the quality of the brief rehearsal clip that was released early this month, this sounds to me like a movie worth watching. One of the saddest things about Jackson's untimely passing is that it robbed us all of the chance to see what he had planned for those London dates -- something that a well-done film edited down from that mountain of rehearsal footage might help address. But what do you think? Would you pay to see a movie based on Michael Jackson's last rehearsals, wait until it hit DVD, or skip it altogether?

Not surprisingly, her casual elegance carries over from her kitchen to her garden.

I spent an afternoon with Garten earlier this month at her East Hampton home, a 3,500-square-foot shingle-style house set on 2 beautifully maintained acres, with a studio-kitchen (recently built in a separate building she calls "the barn"), where she also develops new recipes and writes cookbooks.

Beastie Boys Adam Yauch (MCA) has Treatable Cancer, Cancelling Summer Dates


I don't care if they don't tour for the rest of the summer or all of next year, I just want him to get well.


The Beastie Boys have been forced to cancel all their upcoming concerts and push back the release of their new album Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 1 after Adam Yauch revealed in a YouTube video to fans that he will undergo surgery and radiation treatment for cancer in the Parotid gland in his neck. Thankfully, Yauch (a.k.a. MCA) says the tumor in his salivary gland is localized in one area and will not affect his voice — but more importantly, it’s very treatable.

Appearing alongside Adam Horowitz (but not Mike D), Yauch tells the camera that he began to notice he had swollen glands in his throat about two months ago, but it wasn’t until two weeks ago that he spoke to his doctor, who recommended Yauch take some tests. The results revealed that a tumor had formed in the Parotid gland, the largest of the salivary glands. “I just need to take a little time to get this in check, and then we’ll release the record and play some shows,” Yauch said in a statement following the YouTube announcement; the album was originally scheduled for a September 15th release. “It’s a pain in the neck (sorry had to say it) because I was really looking forward to playing these shows, but the doctors have made it clear that this is not the kind of thing that can be put aside to deal with later.” According to the statement, the surgery will be followed by weeks of additional treatment.

No new release date for Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 1, originally set for September 15th, has been announced yet, Among the shows the Beasties are canceling are headlining slots at Lollapalooza, All Points West and the Austin City Limits festival. EMI released a statement that reads, “Our thoughts, love and prayers are with Adam Yauch, his family and the Beastie Boys. The most important thing is to allow Adam to focus on staying healthy. We wish him all the best and a speedy recovery.”

Last month the Beasties confirmed that Hot Sauce features guests Santigold and Nas, who guested with the trio at Bonnaroo to perform their collaboration “Too Many Rappers” (the track can be found on Nah Right today).

Adam Lambert on the Westboro Baptist Church

The Westboro Baptist Church better watch their back.

The Chaparral: What do you do about… the hate, which I don’t want to bring up, but...
Adam Lambert: Oh yeah, yeah. I’ve been hearing about that. Yeah, there were some protestors in San Jose. I guess the Westboro Baptist Church is planning on picketing a bunch of the concerts because of American Idol’s “fag infestation.” Well, I guess they like to put on their signs, “God Hates Fags,” but I think God hates hate more.

TC: Amen. [high fives]
AL: I kind of think there’s probably a better way of spending their energy. Probably doing some good would be better, promoting positive causes, helping the homeless…

TC: Hugging someone.
AL: Yeah. Spreading some love, I think, would probably be more beneficial than hate, you know? But I ignore it. I say everyone’s entitled to their opinion!

TC: A change is gonna come.
AL: [laughs] I agree, I agree.

TC: Pet peeves?
AL: That kind of crap. That’s a pet peeve. No, in a related thing to that, it’s been interesting—because I’m Jewish. [laughs] And clearly gay. And I get a lot fan mail and gifts that are trying to express Christian ideals and Bible scriptures. It’s awkward because that’s not my belief system. I respect people for the intention in which they’re giving these gifts, because I know it’s out love and hope, but it doesn’t match my belief system at all, so I kind of wish there’d be a little bit more respect for that.

TC: The way I see it: music and spirituality, they can be intertwined, but when they start to contradict each other or people start to lose the meaning behind the music…
AL: Yeah! I mean, my music is just for entertainment value, I’m not trying to preach to anybody, I’m not trying to spread any agenda, I’m just trying to get people up and dancing and feeling good. There’s nothing controversial about that.

TC: It’s just fun.
AL: Yeah, it’s fun. It’s fun and it’s sexy. And if sexy scares you, don’t listen to my music.

Christina Milian Confirms Engagement

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Singer Christina Milian is set to say "I Do!"

After long dismissing claims of an engagement, the R&B singer and actress confirms to Us she will walk down the aisle with music producer boyfriend The-Dream.

"We don't have plans yet -- but it hasn't [already] happened, that I can confirm," Milian, 27, told Us at Saturday's Venom Energy and Trainwreck party for music executive Billy Clark, of her upcoming nuptials. "We just want to have our closest friends and family there; it's not going to be too big."

The-Dream, who presented Milian with a six-carat sparkler from Ivanka Trump's jewelry line, says the couple is already thinking about kids.

"I love kids, and [Christina] loves kids probably more than I do," he tells Us, but reasons that the pair is focused on work -- namely Milian's upcoming album, Elope -- for the time being.

"I think when you're a female in this business, it's kinda hard to do the natural thing that you want to do," he says. "You have to do your work -- then whenever she makes that time for herself -- she'll make that time [to have a baby]. In the next couple of years, there'll be something around."

It will be the first marriage for Milian, who previously dated rapper and America's Got Talent host Nick Cannon. The-Dream's marriage to singer Nivea ended in late 2007.

If it truly is the thought that counts when it comes to gift-giving, John Mayer should stop thinking and just hand out gift certificates.

According to a story in this morning’s NY Post, when the singer was dating Jessica Simpson a few years back, he was unable to celebrate her birthday with her so he sent her a little something to remember him by — quite literally.

“It was a DVD of him in concert,” the paper quotes a source as saying. “Jessica spent the rest of the night watching the DVD on a loop, ‘being with him.’ It was so sad.”

Of course, considering that Tony Romo’s most recent birthday gift for Jessica was to break up with her the night before, the idea of sitting around watching a John Mayer DVD on repeat doesn’t sound so awful.

Bam's Mom -- He Was 'Severely Dehydrated'

April Margera just called into WMMR radio in Philadelphia to explain why a 911 call for a "possible overdose" was made for Bam yesterday.

April -- who just got back in town from a vacation -- said Bam had been filming for the MTV show "Nitro Circus" and had become "severely dehydrated." She said when Bam films stunts for shows like "Nitro" -- which is just like "Jackass" -- he forgets to take care of himself and doesn't eat enough.

April also said "basic partying" played a factor and she heard Bam walked to the ambulance on his own power.

Suspended NFL star Michael Vick(notes) ended his federal dogfighting sentence Monday, freeing him to lobby for a return to the field.

Vick’s attorney Lawrence Woodward told The Associated Press outside Vick’s suburban Virginia home that the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback had been released from federal custody as scheduled. That means Vick no longer has to wear the electronic monitor he’s had while under home confinement for the last two months of his 23-month sentence.

Alcohol fuels this Burn Notice: Jeffrey Donovan nabbed for DUI (UPDATED)

The star of that show "Burn Notice" may have been a little too lit up when he got behind the wheel last weekend -- dude was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence in Miami Beach.

TMZ has learned Jeffrey Donovan was arrested on suspicion of DUI last Sunday, July 12th. The 41-year-old posed for a cop cam and was released several hours later.

So far, no comment from Donovan's reps

I've really started to enjoy Burn Notice since the new season started up again. I'm a little disappointed in Mr. Donovan getting a DUI though. Google doesn't show up anything with a past history of chemical dependency. But google now allows you to comment on links? wtf is up with that.

"Burn Notice" star Jeffrey Donovan is going to have a rough time in court -- it's not exactly an airtight defense in a DUI case to argue, "I really think I'm only borderline and not too drunk."

We obtained the police report from the Miami Beach PD. The arresting officer wrote he first noticed Donovan after hearing "a loud tire screech behind me." The cop said he saw Donovan's car swerve left to avoid hitting the police car.

When Donovan finally stopped, he didn't serve himself well when he said, "Sorry, I didn't see the red light or your stopped car."

The officer says he smelled a strong odor of alcohol, asked Donovan if he had anything to drink and got this answer: "I had three drinks at the Fontainebleau."

Donovan flunked a field sobriety test and was taken into custody. That's when he said, "The only mistake I made tonight was drinking Benadryl with 3 glasses of wine."

UPDATE 5:49 PM ET Donovan was just charged with one count of DUI. If convicted he could get 6 months in the slammer, but given that he's a first offender it's unlikely that he'll do any time.

Fergie and Josh Duhamel: Dodgers Date

Taking some time out of their busy schedules to enjoy America’s favorite pastime, Fergie and her husband Josh Duhamel were spotted at the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball game yesterday (July 19).

The “Big Girls Don’t Cry” songstress and her “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” stud looked pleasant as they strolled through the parking lot to see the home team take on the Houston Astros while doing their best to ignore the paparazzi.

Fergie recently told press that she is trying to clean up her act a bit on the new Black Eyed Peas tour because she wants to be a more positive role model to her younger fans.

“I wasn’t trying to be a role model with The Dutchess,” she explained. But she shifted her outlook after “seeing little girls in the audience with their moms. [It] made me think about what I do onstage a little bit more. I had to watch my mouth, because it can be filthy.”

Now, someone you haven't seen in 20 years is going to scan your entire yearbook, and tag every last one of your darkest high school secrets. Thanks, internets.

Have you wondered what your favorite rap stars looked like? Well, now you can relax. They were all geeks, dweebs, preps, and nerds, just like the rest of us. See for yourself in the 10 Most Amazing Yearbook Photos of Rappers.

Nick Lachey on Jessica Simpson: I Wish Her the Best

Although Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, former spouses and stars of the reality show Newlyweds, now find themselves suddenly single at the same time, Lachey insists there is no reunion planned.

"I think it’s fun storytelling, but there's very little truth to any of it," the singer told PEOPLE at a party at Dusk at the Caesars Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City Saturday night. "I certainly have heard about her breakup and I wish her the best, as I’ve always done. Aside from that, there really is nothing to say."

So has he reached out to his ex-wife since her sudden split with Tony Romo? "I haven't talked to her in probably two years," Lachey says. "I wish her happiness. That’s where it pretty much ends."

As for his own recent breakup with girlfriend of three years, Vanessa Minnillo, Lachey doesn't seem to be too torn up over it. "I'm in a good place," he says. "I've learned, through years of not only being in this business, but being in relationships, that you have to take it as it goes. With every experience, you learn something about your life, and you try to take that and move on and be a better person because of it. We'll see what happens."

January Jones Covers Interview Magazine

Mad Men star January Jones takes the August 2009 cover of Interview Magazine.
The 31-year-old actress, who plays the doting wife of Don Draper (Jon Hamm), was interviewed by Jack Nicholson. Here are some excerpts:
On if she was named January because it’s when she was born: “It’s a coincidence. It’s from a book called Once is Not Enough by Jacqueline Susann. Bad book… People think that I changed my name. I could’ve been an actress, a superhero, or a stripper.”

On some things that women now take for granted
: “Things like getting to go to an Ivy League school, getting work as a high-powered businesswoman or as a studio executive. Anything you would think.”

On what success means to her: “Well, success for me is to feel happy—80 percent of the time. That’s been my goal in life. I think that comes from my father. He’s a very optimistic, happy person. I’m not quite sure if I’ll ever feel this, but I want to know how to be happy. I’m happy when I’m at work. I’m happy when I’m with my family or my dog. But, you know, there’s always that feeling of, I’m not satisfied. I have that thing in my stomach where I just need to keep striving for things. In my mind, I want the fairy tale.”

Angelina Jolie’s Wardrobe Robbery

Falling victim to thieves, Angelina Jolie’s wardrobe was ransacked for thousands of dollars worth of designer clothing, according to new reports.

Stolen from Los Angeles stylist Jennifer Rade’s home this past Thursday night, the “Wanted” actress reportedly was having the designer items held for her for future use during upcoming promotions.

“Every designer who was sending pieces was trying to send their best stuff,” a source told Page Six.

The insider added, “Angelina was just starting the fitting process for pieces to wear when she begins promoting [new movie] Salt.”

Trust the director, he declares it'll be great!

Today I got to attend the Australian Press Conference for G.I. JOE.

Representing the film was director Stephen Sommers, producer Lorenzo Di Bonventura, and actors Channing Tatum, Marlon Wayans, Sienna Miller and Rachel Nichols who all arrived on Sydney Harbour via a Jet Boat. Now let me say there was a lot of fluff asked at the conference with a lot of people more concerned about what Sienna Miller was wearing that day, it was just a dress people!, and Miller's love life rather than the movie. So here are the pieces of info that will get you excited, I'll pop the full transcript up tomorrow.

Our host Jabba, yes only in Australia could a host of a Press Conference of a major Hollywood movie be called Jabba, asked if the cast were locked in for a sequel. Director Sommers had hinted at it throughout the Conference and here is his answer.

"Yes they are!" the whole cast smile and nod their heads and make a lot of noise but amidst it all Sommers shouted "Next Summer!"

Also asked by another FOOL was "What was your reaction to rumours you were fired during post production and can you please confirm if you have final cut?"

Sommers replied "Yes I have final cut, it was actually a surprise because I was in the editing room and I got a phone call from a friend checking if I had been fired and replaced, so I just kept editing. That's what's crazy about the internet because I have final cut and they couldn't throw me off if they wanted and clearly when you see the movie you'll realise how silly that was.Someone said 'It was the worst testing movie in Paramount's history' that's crap! When you see the movie you'll know it's false. It is discouraging though. If you took two seconds to look into it not only do I have final cut but as a director if I didn't have final cut, you'd have to really screw up a movie to get fired because once a director gets fired from a project the stigma attached to that movie... you're just dead."

So there you all have it, a the cast are locked in for a sequel and if Sommers has it his way another will be coming soon, I guess it'll depend on the amount of $$$ made. Check back tomorrow where I'll out the full transcript up and you can hear about Sienna's love life, the brand of the dress she was wearing and how she juggles being so famous. There is more talking about G.I. JOE and an extremely funny Marlon Wayans who gave out his phone number! See you tomorrow.

New Gerard Butler Interview in the Daily Telegraph

Muscular action hero one moment, sensitive rom-com lead the next, Gerard Butler’s talent for mixing the rough with the smooth has made him one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars.

Gerard Butler is in mid-flow, telling me a very funny – and characteristically self-deprecating – story about trying to persuade the producers of his latest film, The Ugly Truth, that he should swap his native Scottish accent for a put-on American one – 'But with an American accent you won’t be as likeable, they said. Yes I will, trust me, I said. Well, we don’t, they said’ – when we are interrupted by a waiter. 'Excuse me, Mr Butler, I have a Mr Brad Pitt on the phone for you.’ Butler goes to take the call and returns a few minutes later muttering awkwardly about 'working on a project together’. This is obviously what happens in Hollywood; even before Pitt’s call, our dinner at the exclusive L’Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills has been interrupted twice – once by an English producer working on a romantic comedy with Jennifer Lopez attached that they would 'love’ him to do, and subsequently by Julia Roberts’s manager, who feels compelled to pass on the very important message that 'Julia says hi’.

When a waitress comes over and wonders if Mr Butler wouldn’t mind going to see Tom Cruise in his suite when he has a moment, I begin to smell a rat. Every waiter in Hollywood is an actor in disguise and Butler has cast these two in his prank. As for the star of the show, he is beside himself with the hysteria of it, booming with laughter until the tears stream down his cheeks.

The Redemption: An interview with singer-songwriter Brooke Hogan

Brooke Hogan who rose to fame for being the daughter of famous wrestler Hulk Hogan has truly come into her own with the release of her latest album, The Redemption. With a hit TV show, Brooke Knows Best, the talented singer-songwriter is proving that she has what it takes to succeed in the music business and is staking her claim in the music world.

Her new single, “Hey Yo” features Grammy nominated Kon Live Distribution/Interscope recording artist Colby O’Donis who has worked with Akon and Lady GaGa. Hogan says of The Redemption, “It’s about my image and it’s about my life story as it’s unfolding.” The album features deeply introspective lyrics that talk about everything from the relationship with her mother to how her life is unfolding, and the overall message is one of hope, and that ‘no matter how bad things are you can always come out on top.’

Carrie’s book will detail what happened behind the scenes at the pageant, why she answered the gay marriage question as she did, and what she believes really led to her losing the Miss California crown.

Prejean, 22, was replaced by the Miss California pageant’s first runner-up, Tami Farrell earlier this summer

Michael Phleps' long lost soul mate


Here's a few stills from a video obtained by Inside Edition of the Gosselinchildren's possible future stepmother taking a hit from a bong and a pipe while not wearing pants. Hailey knows what's up. Whenever I'm getting read to get my bong on, I always take my pants off. Pants just get in the way of conducting business properly. And that doesn't really sound right. While my glitter hole weeps at the thought, read on....

This video isn't really shocking since Hailey Glassman and her not rightbrows were arrested a few years ago for marijuana possession. It's also not shocking, because she's 20-something and this is what a lot of them do. Sucking on a bong totally prepared Hailey for sucking the hot air out of Jon's ass.

Part of me thinks that Kate Gosselin and her possum hair are sharing a cup of Hazlenut International Coffee and laughing at this. The other part of me thinks that Hailey is on Kate's payroll.

Ciara Working Again With The Newly-Crowned King of Pop!

According to a new article published in The Observer, singer Ciara is back in the studio with her "Fantasy Ride" collaborator Justin Timberlake.

The news seems to have slipped out by mistake, since the article actually focused on Ciara's no-show at a recent party for Social Life magazine which she's currently on the cover of. According to the magazines editor Devorah Rose, the reason given for CiCi's absence was "she got an opportunity to go into the recording studio with Justin Timberlake."

Timberlake was behind two songs on Ciara's recent "Fantasy Ride" album, "G Is for Girl (A–Z)" and the worldwide hit "Love Sex Magic".

Dani - Don&#39;t Look At Me!

Trailer Mr Nice starring Rhys Ifans

Mr. Nice trailer

Synopsis from Firstshowing.net:

This trailer for Mr. Nice was pitched to me as "British version of Blow based on the true story of Howard Marks." Thought I think it seems more like a British version of American Gangster. Mr. Nice stars Rhys Ifans as Howard Marks as well as Chloe Sevigny, David Thewlis, Elsa Pataky, Andrew Tiernan, and Jack Huston. This actually looks pretty damn good, so I thought it'd be worth featuring today. The trailer is very long, over three minutes, so make sure you're settled in before you watch it. This actually looks a lot better than I was expecting and the mix of comedy and drama also seems like it'll be a unique touch.

The life story of Howard Marks, a former teacher who achieved notoriety as a drug smuggler through connections with MI6, the IRA, and the Mafia, and his eventual conviction at the hands of the DEA.

Mr. Nice is written and directed by British filmmaker Bernard Rose, of Clive Barker's Candyman, Immortal Beloved, Anna Karenina, Ivans xtc, Snuff-Movie, and The Kreutzer Sonata previously. This is currently set to hit theaters in England next February in 2010. However, it doesn't have a US distributor just yet, so we're not sure when it'll hit US theaters.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Cameron Diaz FINALLY HOOKING UP??!!

OK this was way too hilarious NOT to post. Even though I'm 99% sure Leo and The Bar are still bang-a-langin, I've always loved hearing about these two getting their flirt on. Oh, and there's some extra blah blah blah about Jude Law but really, who cares about him anymore? Not me.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Cameron Diaz get cosy on a night out in London
By 3am 21/07/2009

We do enjoy a good rom-com – and what could be better than a real-life one, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Cameron Diaz? So imagine our delight at hearing these two Hollywood A-listers had a Titanic night on the tiles, fuelling speculation about their relationship.

Leonardo and his Gangs of New York co-star Cameron were seen getting cosy at hip London club Maddox after earlier having dinner, on Saturday night. Well, they are both footloose and fancy-free. Leo recently split with Israeli model Bar Rafaeli after two years, while Cameron has just ended a year-long relationship with Essex model Paul Sculfor, 38.

Leo, 34 – who is in the capital filming his latest movie Inception – sat next to Cameron at Maddox nightclub as she planted kisses on his cheek. At one point he was seen whispering into her ear. And while his friends hit the dancefloor, he and Cameron sat together in a private corner of the club, deep in conversation.

One fellow clubber tells us: "They were laughing a lot and very touchy-feely and they ignored everyone else. "They seemed very close and comfortable with each other’s company. "Leo was pouring her glasses of champagne."

Earlier they had dined with pals at Shoreditch House member’s club, before heading to the rooftop bar for drinks. Wearing a white top and jeans, Cameron pulled on a baseball cap as she left to try and hide her identity. From there they headed to Maddox at 12.30 before the whole party left to go back to Leo’s Knightsbridge apartment at 3am. Our spy says: "Everyone was having such a great time they didn’t want the party to end. So Leo got all his pals, including Cameron, to go back to his pad to continue drinking."

Then Cameron, 36, was out partying again on Sunday, while Leonardo stayed in to learn his lines. She went clubbing at Royal hangout Boujis where she bumped into Jude Law – her co-star in The Holiday – in the VIP area. They were seen chatting before they left via separate exits. Our source adds: "Leo wanted to go out but had a lot of work to do. He hopes to meet up with Cameron again soon. They got on very well."

Exclusive: Mischa Barton mess forces 'Beautiful Life' to prep contingency plan

Beautiful Life will go on, with or without its troubled star Mischa Barton.

Although reps for The CW and CBS Television Studios declined comment, multiple sources confirm that producers of the upcoming model-centric drama are quietly readying a Plan B in light of the former O.C. actress' current medical woes. Said plan involves the addition of a new female character to fill the void left by Barton. While not a direct recast, the new recurring character -- tentatively named Jane -- would bear a striking resemblance to Barton's experienced supermodel, Sonja Stone. Casting is underway.

Production on Beautiful Life, originally scheduled to get underway on July 22, was pushed back a week -- but not because of Barton. Per a spokesperson for The CW, the show's sets were not ready for their close-up. Production is not set to resume the last week of July ahead of a Sept. 16 launch.

Barton was hospitalized last week after calling the L.A.P.D. with an unspecified health problem. Reports that she has been placed under involuntary psychiatric hold at an L.A. hospital have not been confirmed by her reps.

Rihanna and Pharrell Williams Dating?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Poor Rihanna. Every time she even glances at a man recently people speculate about whether or not she’s in a romantic relationship with them. However, is there reason to believe that Rihanna and rapper Pharrell Williams could be dating?

Apparently, the two have been spending a lot of time together and recently, Pharrell was spotted coming out of the hotel that Ri-Ri was staying at. Sources say that the two have gotten pretty close and they’ve started to test out their relationship.

An insider tells the Daily Mirror, “It’s no secret that Rihanna and Pharrell have chemistry. And not just in the studio - they seem mesmerized by each other. But Chris will be gutted to learn he could have lost Rihanna to one of the sexiest men in music.”

The source continues, “Rihanna and Pharrell talk on the phone all the time and whenever she can get a break in her schedule she’ll go and support him at a gig.”

Pharrell, the lead vocalist of N.E.R.D., has been said to be helping Rihanna in the studio for her upcoming album. Plus, they toured together on the “Glow in the Dark Tour” with Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco and Nas also on the tour. Maybe they’re “just friends”, which is probably the typical answer that we’ll be hearing from them and their reps.

"She'll be fine. She'll be on the show," he tells Extra. "I don't get a lot of say. I've just made it clear that I want Paula on the show."

Added host Ryan Seacrest (who just inked a $45 million, three-year contract): "I think as far as I know, you'll see everybody back. I hope so."

David Sonenberg, Abdul's manager, raised concern over the weekend, telling the Los Angeles Times that the singer-dancer hasn't been offered a contract yet.

"She's not a happy camper as a result of what's going on. She's hurt," he told the paper.

Meanwhile, a grass-roots "Keep Paula" campaign has launched on Twitter to keep Abdul on the show.

Matt Giraud, Anoop Desai and Danny Gokey -- who are now on the Idol live tour - are among the alums who've taken time out to join the campaign.

Over the weekend, Abdul took to her Twitter page to thank fans for standing by her.

She wrote: "I"m actually moved 2 tears upon reading the enormous amount of tweets showing me your kindness, love & undying support. God bless all you! If it weren't for you, this specific time and situation would feel a lot worse! XoP."

Twilight’s Christian Serratos: R-Pattz is No Ladies’ Man

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Twilight star Christian Serratos, aka Bella’s high school pal Angela Weber, has a job many girls would just die for — she gets to be on set with Robert Pattinson and the rest of the vamp-movie gang all day. So does she think R-Pattz’s new reputation as a ladies’ man is deserved? OK! chatted with Christian at the Charlotte Russe 2009 Fall Launch in NYC, and we asked if the thought Edward Cullen had turned into a playboy since skyrocketing to fame over the last year.

“I don’t think so,” says Christian, adding that if has changed, Robert has gone in the opposite direction.

“If anything he’s become more humble and more introverted,” Christian tells OK!.

So what about the romance with Kristen Stewart? Christian teased us with a sort of yes, sort of no on whether the two are together.

“I truly don’t know, I don’t know. There is a possibility,” Christian reveals. “There’s a possibility that it’s all BS, I just don’t know. It’s going to be interesting finding out either way.”

Christian and the rest of the cast will be reunited on the set of Eclipse in August, something she’s excited about.

“I feel like we’re all going to have a blast. I feel like we all know our characters and we’ve all had a lot of help with Stephanie [Meyer], too,” she explains. “She’s there on set and if we have a question, she’ll answer our question. She’s just really chill. She’s really supportive. She likes what everyone’s doing, so I think everyone just wants to make her happy, as well as the fans, so it works out.”

Controversy over smoking in 'Labor Pains'

ABC Family what the hell happened to you? You used to be the beacon of all that is pure and Christian now it’s an 8PM time slot on a Sunday and Lindsay Lohan has smoked more on camera than George Carlin! I love smoking things as much as the next person but I draw the line when your straight to cable movie, Labor Pains, is showing a 25 year old protagonist chain smoking Marlboros in the bathroom. What do you think their target market is? Why was this movie rated only TV-PG and how the hell am I sitting through it?

The entertainment contractions of Lindsay Lohan’s straight to cable TV movie of the week, Labor Pains, were just too much for us. We pushed and pushed past the half hour mark hoping everything would turn out right, but in the end we had the baby too early and it was ugly and disformed so we turned it off. The script was off, I didn’t laugh once, and the panicked main character read a little more like she was begging us to like her again.

If I was a parent who sat my little daughter down to watch Lindsay Lohan's ABC Family movie of the week last night I’d be pissed. She smoked through the entire movie while getting advice from Cheryl Hines. They smoked in the bathroom twice, and in a bar over drinks before I couldn’t take anymore. Maybe her nic fits were suppose to be humorous juxtaposed against her lying about being pregnant, but it just wasn’t funny.

Is ABC Family becoming lazy or are our teenagers just getting looser? Remember, they also have The Secret Life Of An American Teenager which teaches kids it’s better to get pregnant and have it because it’s more interesting and you’ll get lots of attention from your parents, than to just use a condom. Thirteen year old girls watch this crap, I know because we watch this crap!

Won’t somebody think of the children? What will they watch in their tween years if they don’t have ABC Family? Veggie Tales?

Colin Farrell & Jeff Bridges filming "Crazy Heart"


Pic stars Jeff Bridges, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Colin Farrell and Robert Duvall.

It is thesp Scott Cooper's helming debut. Cooper also penned the script based on an eponymous novel by Thomas Cobb. Story concerns an aging country singer (Bridges) who finds inspiration through his relationship with a reporter (Gyllenhaal) while dealing with the rise of his younger protege (Farrell). Duvall plays a mentor to Bridges' character.

Set for release in Spring 2010.


Last night at a Toby Keith concert, they were filming another movie "Crazy Heart", starring Jeff Bridges, Colin Farrell, and Robert Duvall. Those in attendance were treated to be a part of the film as they filmed concert footage for the film. The film is about a down-on-his-luck alcoholic country music singer who, through his relationship and experiences with a female reporter, is able to get his life and career back on track. During the filming at the Toby Keith Concert, Colin Farrell and Jeff Bridges got on stage and sang to the audience while scenes were shot. I must say they were not half bad as country singers. I was allowed to bring in a small digital camera and I took pictures and some small videos of the filming.
Some Guy's Blog  - the YouTube video was shot by this guy.

The video is Jeff and Colin singing.  Colin joins Jeff onstage at about 40 seconds.

Mischa Barton’s Rep Calls Coke Binge Allegation “Preposterous”

While actress Mischa Barton remains under court-ordered psychiatric supervision following a breakdown last week, rumors of what brought about the hospitalization continue to swirl. The latest and most prevalent is that the O.C. star had gone on a three-day cocaine “bender.”

However, a rep for Mischa tells OK! that this just isn’t true.

When reached for comment on Sunday night, Mischa’s rep stated that this story is “completely preposterous” and that there it contains factual errors about the events leading up to the actress being hospitalized.

Of course, if this is true, then the question of Mischa’s “medical situation” is an even bigger mystery than before.
