Boosh - New Romantic

Australian conservatives continue to keep the country safe from ~moral corruption~

FILM distributors are alarmed by new laws that quietly came into effect in South Australia this week restricting the promotion and display of R-rated movies.

Adults aged over 18 seeking to buy or borrow a copy of Mad Max, the acclaimed desert war drama Three Kings, starring George Clooney, the Brad Pitt classic Fight Club or the 2009 Blu Ray release of Sasha Baron Cohen's fashion parody Bruno will now find them in plain packaging displaying nothing more than the film's title.

Taylor & his reported GF Sara Hicks! R.I.P gay rumors you wont be missed.



Sure to boost rumors of a blossoming coupledom, Taylor Lautner and Sara Hicks were spotted out on a lunch date in Los Angeles, California on Friday afternoon (January 15).

The Jacob Black stud and his lady friend were joined by Taylor’s dad, Dan Lautner, grabbing up a tasty Italian meal at the local Olive Garden restaurant.

The sighting comes as tabloids continue to claim that Mr Lautner is intent on winning back ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift.

Of the supposed attempt to get back the country singing cutie, a source said, “He plans to overwhelm Taylor with four dozen red roses, a diamond friendship ring and a romantic dinner date when they’re both in Los Angeles. He wholeheartedly believes they have something special and that it’s worth fighting for.”

Nonetheless, it sure seems as if Taylor has moved on in the romance department

Clad in a cute pink dress and blazer, the Alice Cullen cutie happily posed for photos as she hopped out of her car, making sure Marlow had his time to shine too!

As you have already heard, the earthquake victims of Haiti need our help.

We just want our fans to know that we have made a contribution to our friends at Convoy of Hope through our charity, Change for the Children Foundation. Convoy of Hope has a warehouse just outside Port-Au-Prince that was fully stocked with food, water and purification devices prior to the earthquake but those supplies will only last so long and need to be replenished as soon as possible.

Any support to Convoy of Hope will provide the necessary supplies the people of Haiti need to survive but also give them hope in knowing that the rest of the world is joining in the effort to repair and rebuild not just the country but their lives.

Even the smallest contribution will go a long way.

You can donate any amount through Convoy of Hope: http://www.convoyofhope.org/

We love you!

A History of Horror and the Golden Globes


There are no horror movies among this year's Golden Globe nominees, unless you want to count the best foreign-language feature nod to The White Ribbon, Michael Haneke's icy examination of the systematic, multi-generational cruelty in a small German town. But that would be quite a stretch, even if Haneke did make Funny Games (2007).
 

That said, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) has always been far more generous to the genre than the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Maybe it's their old-world roots: Many HFPA members come from places that take ghosts, shape shifters, ghouls, haints bog beasts and assorted other fiends very, very seriously. And they come from countries that take horror movies seriously too -- it took the French to coin the word cinefantastique, which sounds so much classier than "fright flicks" or "monster movies."
Whatever the reason, for 60 years, genre movies -- horror, science fiction and fantasy -- have gone home with shiny Golden Globe statues and the warm 'n' fuzzy feeling that somebody out there really, really likes them. Here are some highlights, along with a couple of dismal lows:

NBC To Pay Conan $30 Million?




NBC has reportedly agreed to pay late night talk show host Conan O’Brien $30 million to vacate the 11:35 p.m. Tonight Show.

Conan’s publicist Leslee Dart tells The Wrap: “Nothing (is) signed yet. Those figures are not accurate.”

The Wrap reports, “Under this proposal, the sooner O’Brien starts a new gig — if he starts one — the less money it would have to pay. So if Conan managed to land a new job at Fox within a year, the Peacock might shell out less than the full $30 million.”

Conan Puts The Tonight Show for Sale on Craigslist



At least there’s some more humor coming out of the NBC late night debacle. On this evening’s Tonight Show, Conan O’Brien joked that he’s putting the program for sale on Craigslist — while he still can.

However, it appears that the listing itself is no joke, and can be found under the for sale/wanted > collectibles category in Los Angeles. Titled “4 SALE: BARELY-USED LATE NIGHT TALK SHOW,” Conan’s looking for your best offer, but also “willing to trade for Coldplay tickets.”

Fergie dieting & excercising so Josh Duhamel won’t cheat again



An insecure Fergie tones up in hopes of shoring up her shaky marriage!
Still devastated from hubby Josh Duhamel’s cheating, the Black Eyed Peas singer - who gained nearly 20 pounds for the musical Nine - has started a new diet and exercise regimen.

"Fergie’s self-esteem took a huge hit after finding out Josh cheated. But she’s fighting back by getting in the best shape of her life," an insider told The ENQUIRER.

Fergie told a friend: "A killer body is the best revenge."

In a blockbuster world exclusive, Georgia stripper Nicole Forrester told The ENQUIRER that she had a marathon sex session with Transformers hunk Josh, 37, while he filmed in Atlanta this past fall.
The ENQUIRER later reported 34-year-old Fergie told friends that she agreed to forgive Josh because they still love each other and want a baby.

Now Fergie - a longtime yoga and treadmill devotee - is working hard to keep off the 17 pounds she put on to play a curvy Italian hooker in Nine, according to insiders.
She’s taken up Piloxing - a combination of Pilates and boxing - and ordering from a food delivery service called Diet Designs, said the insider.

"Fergie is determined to make herself look great for Josh. She even said she’d consider cosmetic procedures," the insider divulged.

"She thinks Josh is a very good man, for the most part, and is worth all the effort.

Nic Cage -- Six Million MORE Tax Problems

Nicolas Cage got an expensive New Year's gift from Uncle Sam -- a bill for $6.7 million in MORE allegedly unpaid back taxes.



According to a federal tax lien filed on December 31, 2009 -- Cage owes $6,712,821.99 in unpaid taxes for 2008.

According to Sam Levin, Cage's former financial manager -- who's in a legal war with Nic over the massive financial collapse -- by 2008, the actor had "15 palatial homes around the world, four yachts, a Gulfstream jet and millions of dollars in jewelry and art." Cage claims Levin was incompetent and underhanded and sunk Cage's financial ship.

As TMZ first reported,Cage is on the hook for $6,617,550.84 he owed for debts in 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2007 -- making his new grand total $13,330,372.83.

It's unclear on how Cage will pay up -- due to the fact that Nic has described his own financial state as "catastrophic."

UPDATE: Nicolas Cage just gave TMZ the following statement: "Over the course of my career I have paid at least $70 million in taxes. Unfortunately, due to a recent legal situation, another approximate $14 million is owed to the IRS, however, I am under new business management and am happy to say that I am current for 2009. All taxes will be paid including any to be determined state taxes."

Pete Wentz defends his son, becomes team ONTD while doing so



After celebrity gossip monger Perez Hilton recently posted photos of Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz carrying his son, Bronx, Wentz has taken to his own site to strike back. In Hilton's original brief, he posted two photos of Wentz carrying his crying 1-year-old along with the text: "Did little Bronx Mowgli just realize his dad is douchey Pete Wentz?! The father-son duo were spotted taking a walk around the streets of New York. Poor baby! We'd be crying, too!"

Earlier today, Wentz posted a reply on his own site: "i dont care what you say about me or really anyone one else. but dont talk about my kid. the love i have for him is something that will make me go against all odds. yes guess what a one year old cries when he leaves the park. but he is not as bloated or mean spirited as you a 30 yearold former closeted bully. say it again. slip up one time. it wont be on the internet. i will make you less than what you are. i will break you and you wont know its me. this is physical. mental. and spiritual. i have an on/off switch for animals that will make you beg for the chance to say youre sorry. you will not get near my son."

The comments on Hilton's post predominantly support Wentz. Check out a pic in question and let us know what you think about this.

I know ONTD's stance on Pete Wentz, but you have to admit that Perez shouldn't be shocked that Pete's putting him on blast (even though he removed the post and apologized). And for as much of the shit that gets said here, it's not like any of y'all publicly kiss Pete's ass and act like he's your BFF. Perez FYI is still bitching on twitter about how OMG PETE WENTZ THREATENED ME!!!!! I wonder what he'd have to say about the shit ONTD spews about him. Also, Pete's apology can be found on his blog as well as a weird bear analogy.

TV Ratings: CBS Wins; Supernanny and Shark Tank Improve





Note: we have a planned site outage for around noon pacific time today (Saturday, January 16) that will hopefully only last around 5 minutes.

CBS won the night with all 3 of its shows averaging a 2.2 rating with adults 18-49, which is almost identical to last week, though last week Numb3rs and Medium each had a 2.1 rating. If that trend continues it’s going to put some pressure on Miami Medical when it takes Numb3rs’ slot.

The Weinstein Company Continues to Suck as a Movie Studio



After a bright spot last year with Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds," which grossed over $120 million domestically at the box office, movie mogul brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein and their studio, The Weinstein Company, continue to see their release slate underperform. Their adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" stalled out at $7 million, and the all-star musical "Nine" hasn't even made a fourth of its $80 million budget back. Now comes word that they've pushed back their next big release: a 3D remake of the 1970s cult horror flick "Pirahna." Originally slated to open April 16th, the flick is now scheduled to open August 27th. While rumors of financial trouble have been plaguing the studio, a Weinstein exec said the movie was pushed back to get out of the way Lionsgate's "Kick Ass," which was to open the same weekend and appeals to the same demographics.

Directed by Alexandre Aja ("High Tension") and starring Elisabeth Shue, Adam Scott, Ving Rhames, Richard Dreyfuss, Jessica Szohr, and Jerry O'Connell, "Piranha 3D" follows the mayhem and carnage after a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish during Spring Break in Lake Victoria. In case you're thinking that they're going to skimp out on the blood and guts, Ain't It Cool News has some gory behind-the-scenes pics from the slaughter. They're definitely not for the squeamish. Also, while an official trailer has yet to be posted online, here's a bootlegged trailer of this future classic, if you want to check it out. (ONTD fave Eli Roth, who has a cameo in the movie, pops up in the beginning of the trailer.)

where in the world is Joaquin Pheonix?

The people who have not seen Joaquin Phoenix are definitely in the majority right now. Ever since the Great Joaquin Phoenix Breakdown of 2009.
Now, remember: Last year, the Walk the Line actor announced he was leaving acting for the world of rap music. He grew a beard longer than Brad Pitt's, behaved bizarrely on late-night TV and made the world wonder whether it was all a big joke.
He also dropped off the map.

We did a little digging, and here's what we found:
My sources in the paparazzi world say they haven't seen Phoenix for months.
"He's been so reclusive, I'd be surprised if there was anything on him for several months," one savvy pap tells me. "Last shots of him that we have are from almost a year ago."
Apparently, the last time Phoenix was supposed to be officially out and about was an afterparty following that MOCA museum 30th anniversary blowout in November. The same party where Lady Gaga sat at a piano wearing a hat and Brangelina walked around.
The afterparty was at a restaurant called Sur, and Phoenix was listed as a cohost. But he was MIA.
I asked the event publicist to confirm that Phoenix was supposed to show up, and I also asked if maybe Joaquin would instead be hosting some other event of hers in the future. (Maybe there had been some sort of miscommunication or emergency?)
"He was supposed to [appear]," the publicist snipped over email. "Your last question is really irrelevant."
Well, meee-ow to you, too. I guess we won't be seeing Phoenix listed as a cohost of anything anytime soon.
So what else?
There have been reports that Phoenix is participating in a documentary with brother-in-law actor Casey Affleck, following Phoenix's transition to rap music or what have you.
It sounds way too interesting to be true, but I reached out to Affleck's publicist, who confirmed that the project is real. It's so real it's already been shot and officially is in postproduction. No word on a release date, but at least we know that the movie is no joke.
Unlike that beard. Which makes me laugh every single time.

'Runaways' Director: Kristen Stewart's And Dakota Fanning's Make-Out 'Will Cause An Explosion'


The Los Angeles Times is running an article in their Sunday edition about "The Runaways," which debuts at Sundance the week after. And yes we do think it's awesome that this article is from the future (yup, it's dated Jan. 17!)

It doesn't contain too much new information about the film, but the LA Times seemed to have gotten pretty up and personal with most of the cast and crew when they did their set visit a couple months back (Kristen and Joan declined to comment for whatever reason). Turns out what we've been referring to as a "biopic" isn't so much a straight history of the evolution of The Runaways, but more a character study of Joan and Cherie's characters.

"It's about 15-year-old rock stars, the rise and fall of kids,"
producer John Linson said. "We're trying hard not to let that get taken away."

LA Times also asked Dakota the question she seems to be asked every time she doesn't do a movie about sunshine and rainbows: Is this her film to break her out of the "child actress" mold, and her response is brilliant. ""I want to continue to act for my whole life," she said. "Eventually, everyone will have to let me grow up, somehow, some way. I'm just trying to let that happen as naturally as I can."

One of the many things that is sure to cause a stir from the film is the reported make-out scene between Dakota and Kristen. Writer and director Floria Sigismondi said, "In 'Edgeplay' (Cherie's memoir), Cherie mentions that Joan is really good in bed. I thought, 'I have to pry into this a bit. It will cause an explosion in the film. Why not go there?' "

It certainly will cause an explosion for all those used to watching Kristen make-out with her "Twilight Saga" costar, Robert Pattinson. We can only imagine what will happen if she goes farther onscreen with Dakota than her chaste kisses with Edward Cullen. Maybe "The Runaways" is moving up on our list of things to be excited for in 2010 already.

Brits don't know who Steve Jobs is

 

20 percent of Brits thinks Steve Jobs is a soccer player

The more time you spend around people in the tech industry, the more you realize just how important some of them think they are. When one is from outside the milieu, this can sometimes seem a little strange.
 

Now evidence has emerged that might give some in the tech industry pause for reflection. And I don't mean staring at their own gorgeous reflection in the mirror.
 

A survey performed by the Lewis PR company, brought to my joyously watering eyes by TheNextWeb, revealed that 20 percent of Brits questioned thought Steve Jobs was what they call a footballer and what Americans sweetly describe as a soccer player.
 

Though many of you will toss your mice up in horror at the mere concept, I must admit I am not in the least bit surprised. It's not that Brits are uneducated or unaware. They are really quite bright, in a bookish sort of way. Moreover, if you watch the footage of the survey interviews I have embedded here, the surveyors questioned American and French people who happened to be in the U.K. too.

Casablancas slams "s***" record label



Julian Casablancas has criticised his record label for the lack of promotion that accompanied the release of his solo album last year.

The Strokes frontman issued his first record Phrazes For The Young in 2009, but has now revealed his upset with the way it was handled.

Casablancas told New York magazine: "They are not the label I signed with. The people change all the time.

"They're nice, they're cool, but honestly they don't do s**t... I still like the plan, but it was executed terribly."


He added: "Working on music is the funnest thing for me. I could do it all day, all night. But there's all this other crap that I just constantly have to do."

NBC to keep Coco's masturbating bear

As a deal nears for Conan O'Brien's exit from NBC, one thing is certain: the characters and recurring comedy bits O'Brien originated during his 16-plus years on "Late Night" and "The Tonight Show" will not follow the host when he leaves NBC.

The Peacock owns the intellectual property behind such popular O'Brien characters as Pimpbot 5000 and Conando, as well as recurring segments such as In the Year 3000 and Desk Driving. Sources involved in the settlement negotiations say NBC is keeping the copyrighted and trademarked elements of O'Brien's shows as part of the deal. That means the bits and characters will likely never be seen after O'Brien's "Tonight" ends its run Jan 22. ‬

Real-Life Fan-Fic Alert: Darth Vader & Daft Punk Team Up To Hawk Adidas



In a move seemingly out of the most boring fan fiction ever, Darth Vader and French Daft Punk have teamed up, not to conquer the universe...but to sell footwear.

In a commercial for Adidas' upcoming Star Wars-inspired Original Line, Sith Lord Darth Vader and robotic house music legends Daft Punk descend on a street full of revelers to sell the the universe's finest clodhoppers. For some reason, they are flanked by their presumed bounty hunters, David Beckham and Snoop Dogg.

Why does a dream team-up like this have to happen under totally crass circumstances? This is like buying a ticket to Chewbacca Meets Freddie Mercury: 3D and belatedly discovering it's a 90-minute advertisement for Fig Newtons.

QUOTE OF THE YEAR
“You can’t take for granted that this is pop music. It’s not rocket science, it’s not brain surgery, and I’m gonna stand by the fact that I’m proud of this record. I’m not a moron, so there.”



$uper$tar Ke$ha Top$ Chart$ (AN INTERVIEW WITH SCOTT SIMON)

January 16, 2010 – “Ke$ha’s music is repulsive, obnoxious and ridiculously catchy,” reads a Rolling Stone review of her new, chart-topping debut album, Animal. Described by the artist as a celebration of “boys, boots, beer, boobs” and another B-word not suitable for Saturday-morning radio, Ke$ha’s debut album has sold more than 150,000 copies since its release on Jan. 5. She recently sat down with Weekend Edition Saturday host Scott Simon to talk about her music.

“With this record, I just want to make people happy,” Ke$ha says. “I think the whole record is a celebration of fun, youth and life.”

Ke$ha — pronounced KESH-ah — grew up in the music business. As the daughter of songwriter Pebe Sebert (”Old Flames Can’t Hold a Candle to You”), Ke$ha began writing songs with her mother after school.

No Backup Plan

“When I was in high school, I’d come home, and for fun we’d write songs together,” she says. “I wrote every song on this album. I always knew it was what I wanted to do. … I never believed in having a backup plan.”

With near-perfect SAT scores, for her, a backup plan was never out of the realm of possibility. As a teenager, Ke$ha had a strong intellectual curiosity that extended beyond the music world.

“I was very studious,” she says. “I was in the international baccalaureate program, I loved physics and math, and I was in the marching band. After practice, I would drive to Belmont [a college in Nashville] and listen to Cold War history classes; I just think it’s so interesting. I was really curious about a lot of things that are much deeper than partying and dancing.”

Apart from partying and dancing, Animal deals with many topics relevant to teenagers: friends, love, pain. In “Stephen,” the 22-year-old sings about a love interest who refuses to give her the time of day.

“I really think this is the best revenge,” she says with a laugh.

As a woman who describes herself as “standing for fun” — and who claims to brush her teeth with Jack Daniel’s — Ke$ha is the latest phenomenon to assume the classic role of the pop star with attitude.

“You can’t take for granted that this is pop music,” she says. “It’s not rocket science, it’s not brain surgery, and I’m gonna stand by the fact that I’m proud of this record. I’m not a moron, so there.”

'Slumdog' Jerk Anil Kapoor About to Meet Jack Bauer



'Slumdog Millionaire,' Anil Kapoor played a smarmy, evil version of Regis Philbin. As host of the Indian version of 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?', he spent the hit movie plotting and conniving to thwart the fortunes of young Jamal. Nowadays, the humble and hard-working Kapoor (he has 100 movies under his belt) is changing gears and trying American TV on for size. His first foray is a slam dunk: he's playing the president of a fictitious Middle-Eastern country in the midst of crisis in '24.' Who'll be there to help? We're betting on this guy name Jack Bauer.

PopEater chatted with the charming Kapoor about his sudden rise to International fame, the insane shooting schedule in India and on playing an "asshole so well" in 'Slumdog.'

Interesting points about Indian films vs. American films. I'm still bitter that SM won EVERYTHING last year, but meh.

Johnny Depp 'Roman Polanski is not a predator'

Polanski is not a predator
When asked to comment on the arrest of Roman Polanski, with whom he filmed the movie "The Ninth Gate" ten years ago, Johnny Depp answered: Why now? "I really do not understand why he was arrested now and in such a manner. That case took place thirty years ago. It's obvious that something is going on, and that it's about a lot of money. All I can say is that Roman Polanski is not a predator. He is a great man, who has wonderful kids, a wife, and he certainly isn't a mudlark (I agree, hobo sounds so much better! lol) who would do something bad to someone", says Depp.'

Brittany Murphy's Mom: My Daughter Didn't Do Drugs

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
In their first interview since her death in December, the mother and widower of actress Brittany Murphy tell PEOPLE that they believe she died because of a congenital heart murmur.

"She had a little bit of a cold," says Murphy's mother Sharon of the days leading up to the actress's death. "You could never in a billion years imagine this happening."

Despite rumors that have swirled since her passing, both Sharon Murphy and Brittany's husband, Simon Monjack, say the 32-year-old did not suffer from mental illness, use drugs or have an eating disorder. "Do you not think anybody would have picked up on this anorexic, mentally deranged person?" Monjack tells PEOPLE. "It's ludicrous."

The pair have spent the last month sequestered in Murphy's Hollywood home. PEOPLE was the first media outlet allowed into the residence.

Both say Murphy's heart condition was diagnosed in her teens and that she had been given appropriate medical care. "We had it checked out every which way you could imagine," says Monjack.

Murphy's mother says her daughter's naturally "bubbly" personality may have sparked rumors of drug use. "She never even drank. Maybe a glass of champagne at New Years," says Sharon. "But everyone used to say she was wasted, she was this, she was that. It was hard for anyone to imagine that somebody was so high on life."

Miley Cyrus is NOT engaged


Don't expect Miley Cyrus to be walking down the aisle anytime soon.

"Miley's not engaged," her rep tells PEOPLE, after the Hannah Montana star, 17, was caught stepping out in L.A. on Thursday wearing a sparkly ring on her left hand.

Rumors immediately began to spread that she and her 19-year-old Australian boyfriend and Last Song costar, Liam Hemsworth, 19, may be getting married.

Though the singer will be leaving her hit Disney Channel TV show next year, Cyrus begins production on the last season Monday and is not committing to have a plus one for life yet.

Although she may have fled from the Hills to pursue other ventures, Lauren Conrad hasn’t extinguished her love for MTV as the starlet now tunes into Jersey Shore for her fix of reality TV.

“No. I haven’t seen it since I left,” Lauren speaks of her former reality show the Hills while out at the Keri Feinstein Golden Globe Style Villa, “But I watch ‘Jersey Shore’ so I am still supporting MTV.”

“Last night was the highlight, it was a double episode. There was two! There’s this one part where Ronnie hits a guy and they don’t really get the hit… Ronnie knocks him out,” Lauren gushes of her new TV obsession to reporters.

And with fans swooning over Jersey Shore characters such as Snookie and Mike “The Situation,” Lauren tells reporters, “I really like J Wow because she can throw a punch!”

But the L.A. Candy author is keeping herself very busy asides from her weekly reality fix as she gets set to celebrate her upcoming 23rd birthday.

“I’m going to do a birthday party on the 30th over at the Roosevelt,” Lauren explains her plans for a celebration although she won’t be as busy with her boyfriend Kyle Howard on Valentine’s Day.

“I usually don’t make plans for Valentines Day. It’s so forced. I would rather get a sweet surprise on a Tuesday and reservations are impossible,” Lauren tells OK! on Friday

Lady Gaga will give Haiti a 'Monster' donation<3



Lady Gaga may be overworked to the point of exhaustion, but that’s not stopping her from committing to help the victims of the 7.0 earthquake that struck Haiti Tuesday.

The singer/provocateur performed on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” Friday, and mentioned that proceeds from an upcoming concert would go towards Haiti relief efforts.

“Haiti's still suffering,” she told Winfrey. “And I was thinking earlier, because I was in New York during 9/11 and I always felt, the level of disaster isn't in the neighborhood of what is happening in Haiti, but I just remember feeling nobody really understood. And I worry that young people don't know enough about what's going on there.”

Although Gaga has canceled or postponed some performances on her Monster Ball tour since she collapsed from exhaustion Thursday, the New York City concert on January 24th is still on.

“And I will say today that on the 24th, the Monster Ball [show] in New York City, all of the money that I make in ticket sales and merchandise will go to Haiti,” Gaga said on Winfrey’s show.

Gaga’s rep told CNN that she’s also donating all proceeds from her last radio show to Haiti, plus all the proceeds from merchandise purchased on January 24 from her site, ladygaga.com.

Holly Madison loves Snooki



Advertisers, lawmakers and Garden State residents might  have problems with Jersey Shore, but the show clearly appeals to one demographic:
Former young girlfriends of old men.
Asked about the show's star, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Holly Madison told E! News: "I love Snooki. She's a pickle sucker!"
That's one term for her. Would Holly wanna see Snooki nude in the pages of Playboy? Not exactly, but:

"I want to see her in a Midsummer Night's Dream outfit," she said, referring to Hugh Hefner's iconic party at the Playboy Mansion.




Oh and Bridget too
 

Bridget Marquardt, meanwhile, echoes her former threesome mate's sentiments.

"She's so funny. She's just being herself and that's just who she is," Bridget said of Polizzi.

As for Jersey Shore in general? Marquardt might not curse like Snooki, but she has the same feelings as the pint-sized, hilarious sex pot when it comes to the MTV series.

"I'm totally addicted. They're like the hottest people in America. They're trainwrecks! I love watching it and we get excited every time there's a new episode. We can't wait to watch."

According to Michelle Williams and Angie Beyince’s twitter, the girls were having a sleep over to catch up on some girl talk. Especially since Michelle announced that she dropped Matthew as her manager, Kelly probably had some words of advice for her fellow band mate.

Carrie Prejean Nipple Slip Bikini Pictures

It's been a while since we had a good old fashioned bikini nipple slip, but this Carrie Prejean nipple slip is even more special, since it's Mss Christian herself. Now, I don't have a problem with Christians, but I do have a problem with hypocrites, and that's what Carrie Prejean is. Still, Carrie Prejean is also really hot, so there's that. The point is, no matter how you feel about the woman who proclaims her love for Jesus, and her eternal purity, yet who gets breast implants to win pageants, and makes sex tapes with boyfriends out of wedlock, we can see Carrie Prejean's nipple, and that's all that matters.

Julianne Moore’s “Eccentric” New Bulgari Ad

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
First she was Tom Ford’s leading lady, now she’s Bulgari’s!

Last month, we reported that A Single Man star Julianne Moore, 49, would be making her debut as the face of Bulgari’s Spring Summer 2010 jewelry and watch ad campaign that launches in February. Now, the campaign, which they’re calling “Eccentric Charisma,” has arrived, featuring Moore bedazzled in several Bulgari bracelets, rings and handbags — she even shares her luxury spotlight with an exotic bird!

The luscious photos were taken by fashion-favorites Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot at legendary interior designer Tony Duquettes’s estate in Beverly Hills.

Of their choice of the Oscar-nominated beauty, who has already lent her face and trademark red hair to Revlon, the Italian luxury brand said, “She exudes a timeless charisma and inescapable magnetism; her extraordinary combination of extraordinary beauty, sharp intelligence and confidence are ideal for Bulgari’s campaign.”

LATE NIGHT IN CRISIS, DAY 10: Conan's Staff Will Be OK, Reps Say; Deal Expected Tonight or Sunday

As final details are hammered out, Conan O'Brien's exit from NBC is expected to be announced late Saturday or sometime on Sunday.

O'Brien's manager, Gavin Polone, got on the phone Saturday to deny a New York Post/Page Six report that O'Brien's staff was upset about not being compensated as "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" shuts down.

"That's a complete lie," Polone said. "I've been in the room every time, and point number one for (O'Brien) has been and will always be that they take care of his staff in a first-rate manner."

Polone noted that O'Brien paid his "Late Night" team out of his own pocket while the show was shut down during the Writers' Strike.

"He has not wavered on this," Polone said. "If they do not appropriately handle the settlements and severance for the staff, then there's no deal. We would litigate."

Those payouts could prove to be a pretty penny for NBC, which is believed to be shelling out between $30 million and $40 million as part of O'Brien's exit package.

O'Brien's executive producer, Jeff Ross, also has a hefty contract that would need to be paid out, while the show's other talent and staffers -- from members of the Max Weinberg 7 to Andy Richter, the show's writers, all the way down to its janitorial team -- would need to be paid.

Until the exit pact is finalized, O'Brien's reps are holding out hope that they might still convince NBC to reverse course and keep the host at 11:35 p.m.

That's looking virtually impossible at this point, however.

For now, O'Brien's staff are prepping a farewell week of shows for "The Tonight Show," leading to a Friday night blow-out. Among the rumored potential guests for that last episode: Tom Hanks.

Meanwhile, after the pact with NBC is finalized, O'Brien's reps have another big job in front of them: Hammering out a deal (probably with Fox) for his new show. Under the arrangement, O'Brien could go on the air as soon as September.

Harry Potter theme park construction update!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Time for another spin around Universal’s Islands of Adventure for a look at the construction of Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which is scheduled to open this spring. There was a certain buzz going about the park today. Part of that was the construction, clearly visible and audible around the perimeter of the new “island” wedged between Lost Continent and Jurassic Park.

But there was a lot of people-originated buzz — folks peeking through the fence and general chitchat filled the air. “Those guys are so lucky,” one kid announced. “Why?” asked his friend. “Because they’re working on Harry Potter.”

Here’s some of what I saw. Hard to get a shot without a construction worker these days.

Angelina Jolie out at Whole Foods with Shiloh and Zahara (January 16)

Enjoying some girl time, Angelina Jolie and two of her daughters were spotted at Whole Foods on Saturday (January 16) in Sherman Oaks, CA.

The “Changeling” actress along with Zahara and Shiloh (who was sporting a rather boyish ensemble), took their time and shopped around at the natural food store.

As previously reported, Angelina and Brad Pitt recently donated $1 million to Haiti, specifically to Doctors Without Borders so it can staff and equip a 100-bed tent hospital with two operating rooms.

In other news, although it was said they will not be attending, word has it there may be a possibility that the famous couple will be attending Sunday night’s Golden Globes. The family’s bodyguard was spotted at the Beverly Hilton where the awards take place.

Can Taylor Lautner’s Reflected Glow Make The Hurt Locker’s Cast Look Presentable?



Brooks Barnes enumerates the things NBC, Dick Clark Productions, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association are doing to boost ratings for Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards. Among them: hiring a host (Ricky Gervais) for the first time in fifteen years, a bunch of online marketing, and arranging the seating chart to be sure that only beautiful stars are seen on-camera:

"Anybody connected with Nine is going to be sitting ringside," [HFPA president Philip Berk] said, referring to the musical starring Nicole Kidman, Penélope Cruz, Kate Hudson and Daniel Day-Lewis. Lining up younger stars has been a priority. Seated with The Hurt Locker contingent will be Taylor Lautner, the beefcake star of The Twilight Saga: New Moon. "He will be there to make the table look glamorous," Mr. Berk said.

We didn't think Kathryn Bigelow, Anthony Mackie, or Jeremy Renner needed the help. But we are excited to see who gets seated next to poor Michael Stuhlbarg.
