Hot Pocket Jailbait in Entertainment Weekly



LET THE BUZZ BEGIN!
JOSH HUTCHERSON


WHY HE LOOKS FAMILIAR
Hutcherson, 17, appeared in 2007's Bridge to Terabithia and in 2008's Journey to the Center of the Earth as the nephew of Brendan Fraser's volcanologist.

MASTER CLASS
Cast as the teenage son of lesbian parents in this summer's acclaimed indie The Kids Are All Right, he admits he was initially intimidated by A-list co-stars like Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, and Mark Ruffalo. "Crap, how am I going to stack up?" he recalls thinking. Then the cameras rolled. "I would be doing a scene," he says, "and they'd just be listening, but they were really listening."

LEARNING CURVE
Growing up in Union, Ky, he had early dreams of a showbiz career. "An acting coach said we should go out to California for pilot season," he says. "My mom had just taken a leave of absence from Delta Airlines, and we were so confused. We didn't know what a [TV] pilot was."

UP NEXT
He stars in the remake of 1984's Russian-invasion film Red Dawn, due next year, and plays an art prodigy opposite Alfred Molina in the indie Carmel.

THE BREAK UP

How did the same dress end up on three different high-fashion magazine covers?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

That’s what we — and Guardian reporter Imogen Fox — really want to know.


The dress, an appliqued Miu Miu creation, is on W, British Vogue and Elle UK. To be fair, we should mention that the dress Lily Allen wears on the cover of Elle is done in a muted lilac lace, while Eva Mendes (on W’s cover) and Swedish model Freja Beha Erichsen (on British Vogue) are both seen in the yellow version.


So how did it happen? We’re flabbergasted, and, well, so is Fox:


Surprisingly, this sort of cover multiplicity is rare. Actors frequently chalk up multiple dresses in the same month, but not magazine covers. There are good reasons for this. Fashion press officers work hard to achieve a delicate UN-style political balance between glossies to make sure that these kinds of overlaps don’t happen. “Usually press offices are pretty good at making sure we don’t get the same dress as our rivals,” says Lorraine Candy, Elle’s editor.


So we have to wonder what happened here — could Miu Miu be so hard up for publicity that it would need to trick three magazines into using its dress? Do we really believe Miuccia Prada is capable of doing something so schemey? No. She’s a sweetheart. And she makes really good clothes — good clothes that, clearly, beg to be photographed.

Gaga, Moss and Campbell Row Over i-D’s September Cover

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It’s no secret that some of the world’s most beautiful models are also some of the world’s snootiest people, but we never expected Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell to be mean to fellow fashion royalty member Lady Gaga.


But it turns out we were wrong. The Daily Mail reports that the two supermodels were gung ho to shoot a spread for i-D magazine’s September issue, but were miffed to learn that Gaga had been added to the shooting schedule at the last minute.


“Naomi and Kate refused to play second fiddle to Gaga and insisted on having their own retouching done, so they were all shot separately,” an unnamed source told the Mail.


“The issue now has a special pullout so there are technically three covers from three separate shoots.”


Ouch. This really wasn’t Gaga’s fault — what fashion editor adds someone to a highly produced September cover shoot at the last minute? Still, it sounds like the good Lady hasn’t fully ingratiated herself with the fashion set. Especially if she gets more attention than they do. We’ll have to see which cover sells the most issues to see who gets the last laugh.

JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT POST, WHOOP WHOOP!!

Jennifer Love Hewitt: Mom Is "So Proud" I'm Playing a Prostitute



Jennifer Love Hewitt has some unlikely support for her racy new role in Lifetime movie The Client List.

"My mom's like, 'I'm so proud. You're pole dancing and you're going to play a prostitute. Awesome!'" Hewitt, 31, tells Entertainment Tonight. "It's like, 'Yeah, what you always dreamed about, mama!' But you know, it's a great part."

Hewitt plays Samantha Horton in the drama, premiering tonight at 9 p.m./ET on Lifetime, about a former homecoming queen who resorts to prostitution to support her family through the recession. Cybill Shepherd stars as Samantha's mother, Cassie.

"Given where we are economically, it's an interesting story... this is the most recession-proof business there is!" says Hewitt, who starred in CBS' Ghost Whisper until it was canceled in May. "It's really a movie about the human condition, and the heart, and where life can take you."

Jennifer Love Hewitt as a mom-turned-prostitute in Lifetime movie 'The Client list'



In 'The Client List," Jennifer Love Hewitt plays a Texas mom who turns tricks to pay the rent and buy her kids stuffed animals. But my favorite moment comes when one of her young associates blames her hooker life on "American Idol."

Emma, who is barely legal, explains to Hewitt's Samantha Horton that she left her home and her strict Pentecostal family to pursue her dream and try out for "Idol."

When she didn't pass the audition, she knew her family wouldn't take her back, so she went to work at the Kind Touch massage parlor.

JENNIFER ANISTON -- TOPLESS!! OMG!



Jennifer Aniston wore only a skirt in the new promotional photos for her scent Lolavie. She was similarly undressed in the fragrance's first image, which was released earlier this year — Jen then wore only a towel! Lolavie is close to Jen's heart, and she even said the story behind its name is too personal to tell. Jen has also shared about how this project in particular caught her eye, as she's involved in everything from formulating the smell to the ad campaign. She'll have more work to do for Lolavie this week, with an expected appearance at London's Harrod's department store for the official launch on Wednesday.

Teenage singer Charice gets Botox for 'Glee' debut



Filipino teenage singer Charice Pempengco says she prepared for her debut on the hit TV show "Glee" by getting Botox and an anti-aging procedure "to look fresh on camera."

The 18-year-old Charice, whose singing career rocketed after appearing on Ellen DeGeneres' and Oprah Winfrey's talk shows, underwent a 30-minute Thermage skin-tightening procedure and Botox to make her "naturally round face" more narrow, celebrity cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo told ABS-CBN television.

Charice, in the same interview, said last week's face makeover was part of her big preparations for her appearance on the hit show's second season. She starts filming at the end of this month.

"All people will be anticipating 'How will Charice look? Is she good enough to pit against Rachel Berry?' So of course there is tremendous pressure," Charice said.

In an earlier TV interview, she said she auditioned for "Glee" in mid-June in Los Angeles and was thankful to have been accepted.

"It's really a blessing," she said, adding she was "very proud to be an Asian, very proud to be Filipino."

With the third installment of his hit vampire series still raking in the bucks at the box office, "Eclipse" star Robert Pattinson continues to be one of the biggest draws in Tinseltown.

Currently working on a new movie called "Water For Elephants," the Edward Cullen stud showed off his handsome looks during a recent photo shoot for TV Week with acclaimed photographer Carter Smith.

Aside from work related duties, Robert recently chatted with press about his "Twilight" lady friend Kristen Stewart - doting compliments while also unwilling to go further than saying that "we are just very good friends!”

He tells, “Kristen and I have lived a great adventure together with the ‘Twilight’ films. We are very close and no one can understand what we’ve gone through together the last few years. When we’re together, we understand each other so well that we don’t have to say a lot to explain what we’re thinking. Kristen is a wonderful girl.”

There as part of the Mega Jam 2010 lineup, the “iCarly” actress looked to be having a blast as she took the stage in a pink top with black shorts and black studded high-heeled boots.

As for her new album Sparks Fly, Miranda told press it was definitely a process to find her own voice and bring it to the surface.

"I wanted to make an album so people could see what I'm really like because with ‘iCarly’ I'm playing a character. It took me a long time to find my own sound. I worked on it for two years. I recorded about 30 songs and ended up narrowing it down to 12 for the album."

Your daily fix of Cheryl Tweedy Queen of England


Cheryl to film X Factor ‘judges houses’ in Britain
Cheryl Cole may be forced to film the ‘judges houses’ segment of the X Factor in Britain – as she could still be too poorly to travel.

The judges – Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Cheryl and Dannii Minogue – normally jet away to somewhere exotic to whittle down their finalists.

However, as the fragile star continues to recover at home after battling Malaria, it has become clear that producers may have to amend their plans. A show source told the Mail: ‘At this stage we are looking at different ways to make things as easy as possible for Cheryl.’

Last year, Mrs Cole, 27, who mentored the boys, whittled down her finalists in in Marrakech, Morocco, with the help of Will Young. While Miss Minogue, 38, who was mentoring the Girls, was joined by her sister, pop star Kylie, in Dubai.

Simon Cowell took his Over 25 hopefuls to his house in Hollywood, with the help of Sinitta. And Louis Walsh, who mentored the Groups, went to Tuscany, Italy, with Boyzone star Ronan Keating.

A source close to Mrs Cole added: ‘No decision has been made yet about judges homes. It’s still some way off so we will see closer to the time.’


New mum Minogue, who gave birth to son Ethan earlier this month, is expecting to rejoin the show for the judges house at the end of August following her maternity leave.

Last week, Cowell, 50, admitted that the petite brunette was keen to return to work. She missed the final X Factor auditions in Manchester – and will miss the boot camp auditions this week.

But Cowell said: ‘I think she is keen to get back to work. I just want to make sure she doesn’t rush back too early.

‘We’re going to have a conversation about that.’

M. Night Shyamalan tells reporter: "If I thought like you I would kill myself"



These videos are from Mexico city's press conference for The Last Airbender with Jackson Rathbone (<3) and M. Night Shyamalan taken by a fansite. The above video is a MUST WATCH. Basically Shyamalan rips a reporter a new one after she asks him if he's selling out in order to win back the audience he lost with his previous flops because they have lost their faith in him. He goes off saying "If I thought like you I would kill myself" and goes on to tell her that her point of view is crass, dismissive and cynic.
My bb Jackson butts in in the end and defends him, he looks very angry.

More cool/tough questions after the jump. Neither seem very confortable with some of the reporters. And neither of them disguised their feelings, especially Jackson.

Also, Shyamalan talks about being close to directing Harry Potter.

Frankel: 'I'm really done with Housewives'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Bethenny Frankel has suggested that she is "really done" with Real Housewives Of New York City.

The reality star - who has her own spinoff show Bethenny Getting Married? - was asked by Fox & Friends whether she will be returning to the Bravo franchise.

"Given the cast and the way that it was, I really think I'm done," she replied. "There's no reason... We beat it to death. We laughed, we cried, we cursed each other out and it's over."

The new mother - who married husband Jason Hoppy in March - was also asked whether her solo reality show had caused friction among the rest of the cast.

"There was definitely friction. It was like the elephant in the room, the underlying tension," she said. "It was never discussed between myself and my castmates. I've moved on and it's amazing and the show is doing incredibly well."

She continued: "It shows an intelligent and witty show can do well without people slapping each other and cursing each other out and flipping tables."

Bethenny Getting Married? - which follows preparations for Frankel's wedding and the impending arrival of daughter Bryn - airs on Bravo.

Leonardo DiCaprio + Joseph Gordon-Levitt Interview




Though Leonardo DiCaprio tends to be the more action-oriented tough guy in movies as opposed to emotionally intense thesp Joseph Gordon-Levitt, they seemed to be switching sides during this meet for Christopher Nolan’s Inception. And while JGL related the thrill of getting banged up doing his own stunts, Leo kept it in the clouds, discussing Freudian analysis of fantasy worlds and flight-of-fancy scenarios penetrating subconscious celeb minds, that at times made it hard to distinguish between the script and a therapy session. Though the biggest challenge of all for Leo, may have been a momentary imaginary incarceration inside a Moroccan vending machine.

Angela Kinsey joins campaign to help feral cats

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Alley Cat Allies, the national advocate for stray and feral cats, today launched a print Public Service Announcement (PSA) campaign featuring Angela Kinsey, star of the NBC comedy “The Office.”

In the ad, Kinsey declares herself an “Alley Cat Ally,” and a supporter of Alley Cat Allies’ major campaign to raise awareness about the millions of Americans who care for stray and feral cats in their communities.

“We are delighted to have Angela Kinsey on board to represent the individuals from all walks of life who share compassion for these cats,” said Becky Robinson, president of Alley Cat Allies, the recognized authority on feral cats and Trap-Neuter-Return.

“Kinsey’s character on The Office, Angela, exemplifies a stereotype sometimes associated with cat lovers,” said Robinson. “But the truth is millions of Americans have opened their hearts and wallets to stray and feral cats.”

A national survey by the respected research organization Harris Interactive found that over 40 percent of Americans have fed a stray cat in their lives, and one out of five has done so in the past year.

Feral cats are the same species as domestic cats, but they are not socialized to people and prefer to live in family groups called colonies. Because they are not adoptable, they are almost always killed in animal shelters.

Robinson noted that many progressive communities across the country have adopted a lifesaving program called Trap-Neuter-Return, in which feral cats are humanely trapped, brought to a veterinarian to be neutered and vaccinated and returned to their outdoor home. Trap-Neuter-Return is the best course of action for feral cats because it ends the breeding cycle, stabilizes populations and improves the cats’ health, Robinson said.

History Channel irresponsibly stokes doomsday fears

Apocalypse Soonish



As the time drew near, survivors were faced with painful decisions. How should they deal with the coming difficulties? Many asked if there were steps they could take to weather the impending disaster. Some wondered if it wasn't best to simply avoid the agonies ahead by committing suicide. More than one suggested that they owed it to their children to kill them quickly, mercifully, to save them from having to endure through such horrendous times.

The people facing these unthinkable choices were not behind the walls at Masada or cowering under the ash clouds of Vesuvius. They were Americans who phoned NASA in just the last few months, terrified by the approach of doomsday on December 21, 2012. Even two years in advance of the date, both teenagers and adults called to talk to researchers and astronomers, looking for information on what they might expect as the planets assembled in an unprecedented cosmic alignment, as predicted by the ancient Mayans, and the world drew to an end.

The idea of someone proclaiming the approaching end of the world is so common that it's become a long standing joke -- the shaggy, ill-kept madman with his rope-belted robe and sign announcing "The End Is Nigh." But even as we make fun of such characters there are dozens of apocalyptic threads running through the public discourse at any moment. There are strategic visionaries who foretell approaching war; scientists who worry over resource shortages, population growth, and climate change; self-proclaimed mystics who declare their exclusive knowledge of devastation to be brought on by everything from impending earthquakes to alien invasion, and always there are preachers and religious "experts" who warn that the Day of Judgment is fast approaching.

Most of the time these fears remain in the background of our conversation, staying little more than the subject of chain emails or late night filler on cable stations. But with some regularity these predictions of doom bubble up and become prominent in public thought. It happened in 2000 as fears of the "Y2K" bug brought on forecasts of money disappearing from banks and airliners plunging from the sky. It happened in the 1950s as fear of nuclear annihilation drove the construction of basement fallout shelters and taught a generation to "duck and cover." It happened in 1844, when tens of thousands of Americans stood on hillsides and rooftops, certain that the Great Day of the Lord was at hand.

The "Ancient Mayan Prediction" of the world's end in 2012 seems typical of a threat that captures the public attention. It comes complete with a star-studded theatrical film and a spate of TV specials. Not only has NASA received sobbing phone calls, but the modern markers of a disaster prediction -- hysterical emails and garish web sites -- are present in abundance. If any of these have reached your screen you may be a bit comforted by this...

Swizz Beatz To Manage Alicia Keys?


This past weekend, Alicia Keys announced that she had decided to part ways with her long-time manager Jeff Robinson of MBK Entertainment. According to the press release, the split was “mutually agreed upon” and Alicia Keys will now “oversee all aspects of her personal career”. Since Alicia and Jeff have been business partners since she was 15, the news left a lot of room to speculate whether the split had anything to do with her current relationship with producer Swizz Beatz.

According to a source, Alicia Keys split with her manager had partially to do with her relationship with Swizz Beatz. The source tells NecoleBitchie.com:

Over the past few weeks, Its been pretty tense in house. Swizz Beatz has been there and has been taking a pretty active role of being a manager. He has been pitching her to people and he’s becoming very vocal in the direction of her career”.

According to another source, Alicia Keys also axed her entire glam squad. “Swizz Beatz is trying to remove anyone from the team that appears to be a threat because of his own insecurities” says the source.
The source also reveals that no one approved of Alicia’s relationship with Swizz Beatz because of the drama and baggage that revolve around the relationship. “Some are questioning his motives“. Case in point, Swizz Beatz pushed for the release of “Put It In A Love Song” featuring Beyonce even though the song received mediocre reviews. He not only produced the song but he co-directed the video. As of right now, the release of the video has been put on hold and they aren’t sure what to do with the video.

The Source goes on to reveal that although Alicia and Swizz Beatz announced their engagement in June, the two have been engaged for about 9 months. Both left their previous relationships to be with each other.

If you noticed, Swizz Beatz was hit with a $2.2 million dollar tax lien immediately after his divorce was finalized with MaShonda. Could that be the reason it took so long for them to finalize the divorce? Without the proper arrangements, MaShonda would have been responsible for that debt as well since they were married at the time.

From what we gather from the press release, it seems as though Jeff Robinson will still be executive producing her new album so hopefully the direction of her music won’t change.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson Talks Shakespeare, 'Modern Family,' And His Emmys Date



If there’s one thing theatrical producers love, it’s a well-known television or film actor who also happens to have serious stage-acting chops and likes to face the footlights whenever possible. Enter Jesse Tyler Ferguson — critically acclaimed, loved by audiences, and Emmy-nominated this year for his role as Mitchell — the more uptight of two dads raising an adopted daughter amid an eccentric L.A. clan — on Modern Family.

But before he became known to the masses via that hit ABC series, he had already amassed an impressive list of theater credits, ranging from summer Central Park stagings of On the Town and A Midsummer Night’s Dream for the New York Shakespeare Festival to his hilarious turn as Leaf Coneybear in Broadway’s The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

Now he’s back in the park, appearing in both The Merchant of Venice and The Winter’s Tale, in the company of such actors as Al Pacino, Lily Rabe, Hamish Linklater, and another terrific Jesse (L. Martin). Ferguson and I recently chatted between shows.

In the final moments of the series, in one of those impossibly glossy and swirling shots of a couple departing, in this case Kristin Cavaleri saying goodbye to Brody Jenner on her way to Paris, the Hollywood sign behind them, suddenly the camera pans way back, the scrim with the Hollywood sign is moved out of the way and they are shown to be on the Paramount lot, surrounded by directors, cameras, lights and the cast. Cavalieri, who hadn't left for Paris at all!, runs up and gives him another more genuine wrap party kind of hug. And bam, the series is over: Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

As a game-changer and a surprise, it proved a better series finale than "Lost."

"We both couldn't have beene happier with the ending," Cavalieri said in the after show, suspiciously titled "The Hills: A Hollywood Finale."

" When we filmed it, we were both speechless because we were so excited and we just didn't know what to make of it," she told the clueless interviewers who didn't even press on the subject.

Nonetheless, Jenner brought it up as well independently.

"As you saw in the end: What's real and what's fake? You don't know," Jenner says. "Our relationship the entire time could have been fake. You don't know, you don't know. It's one of those things."

Jenner, whose dad is in his own reality show, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," playing the hapless paterfamilias went on to say, "That's one of the questions what was always asked of the show: Is it real or is it fake? And we kind of wleft everybody with: Well you never know what was real or what was fake."

"It's your own inerpretation," Cavalieri says.

"Exactly," Jenner says.

From where I sat, it looked like the slight of hand ending was an afterthought -- the edges around Jenner are kind of prominent as if they added the studio stuff by green screen at the last minute and then topped it with a retake by the couple on the set.

But the Canadian interviewers didn't pursue any of this, going on to jabber on about who was dating who still, as if they were real characters. It is Hollywood, after all.

Patrick is a man of his word, won't be using twitter recreationally



Patrick Stump has never really been the most tech-savvy dude — his social networking presence isn't exactly what you would call robust — so, when he took to his Twitter account late Friday (July 16), it was clearly because he had something important to say.

"This is the first tweet I'm typing myself," he wrote on the page, which, up until this point, had been maintained/updated by someone else. "Gonna clear up some misinformation."

At issue were stories about his upcoming solo album, several of which seemed to insinuate that he'd no longer be playing every instrument on the disc (something he's long maintained), but would be joined on the album by former Taking Back Sunday bassist Matt Rubano and drummer Mike Fasano.

"Matt Rubano is playing in my band, he's a genius, but he is not playing on the record," Stump wrote. "Mike Fasano isn't playing on the record either, he's my drum tech, and a damn good one ... I'm still playing everything on the record and it's almost done."

Considering that the Rubano stuff had been circulating since late May, you get a pretty good idea of how often Stump checks in online. But, since he had momentum, he also used his Twitter to address a Washington Post blog post that quoted him as saying his debut disc would feature "outsider folk."

" 'Outsider folk' was a misquote. I said, 'Outsider funk,' but it's not even really that anymore," he wrote. "It's basically an R&B album, but as they say, 'Talking about music is like dancing about architecture ...' You'll have to just hear yourself."

He closed by promising that fans would be hearing his much-discussed solo debut very soon, writing, "Patience will be rewarded. I guarantee no Chinese Democracy."

MTV News sent Stump an e-mail to see if he had anything to add to his, uh, addendums, and, somewhat surprisingly, we got a response — one that hinted, in a very funny way, that fans probably shouldn't expect another outpouring of Tweets like this any time soon.

"The only thing I have to add: I still don't dig Twitter. To paraphrase Lee Marvin, 'I know my career must be doing great 'cause I'm getting quoted incorrectly,' " Stump wrote. "I was tempted out of my cave by misinformation. But you'll never see me tweet what I had for lunch."

Snooki -- Out of Touch with Reality During Strike



Snooki made contract negotiations practically impossible yesterday during the "Jersey Shore" strike -- as soon as the crap hit the fan, she accidentally tweeted her BlackBerry Messenger PIN and had to trash her phone.

Snooks accidentally posted her BBM to her Twitter account -- which has over 310,000 followers -- and we're told her phone exploded nearly instantly with the torrential wave of messages she received from fans.

According to sources close to the reality star, Snooks had to ditch her phone and get a new one -- making her completely unreachable for hours.

Note to MTV: GET SNOOKI'S NEW NUMBER.

Oksana Signed, Then Rejected $15 Mil Deal

TMZ has learned ... Oksana Grigorieva signed an agreement with Mel Gibson for a $15 million package, which would have kept the Mel tapes secret, but she ultimately walked away from it.



Sources tell TMZ, during the child custody mediation in May, lawyers for Mel and Oksana worked out a financial deal for Oksana -- she would get a total of $15 mil, which included child support, a house and other assets. 

But sources intimately familiar with the mediation tell us Oksana promised something in return -- that all "evidence" associated with the case remain confidential.

We've learned the "evidence" includes the tapes. Oksana's lawyers had played some, but not all of the tapes for Mel's lawyers.  We're told Oksana's lawyers did not play the tape in which Gibson used the N word and made a reference to "wetbacks."

As one source put it, "The tapes loomed large in the mediation.  The word 'tapes' was never used in the agreement, but it was central to the deal."

Oksana and Mel both signed a "short form agreement" -- a bare-bones contract outlining the broad strokes of the deal. The lawyers then drafted a long form agreement which contained specifics of the deal, but we're told Oksana refused to sign the long form, claiming she felt coerced. 

We're told Mel never paid Oksana under the deal because the short form didn't spell out the specifics of payment and Oksana refused to sign the longer agreement which contained the details.

Kim Kardashian is flattered to be Demi Lovato's style icon



Kim Kardashian took to her blog today when she heard that Demi Lovato had named her her fashion and style icon.

"Demi is one of the few young stars who manages to show off her own unique style and sense of self while still keeping her looks age-appropriate," says Kim.

"I think when young girls look up to you, it’s important to set a good example, and that’s exactly what Demi is doing with her style. Keep it up, girl, you look fab! :)"

If you look at recent pics of Demi, it's clear that she's been taking style tips from Kim.... and she does look amazing!

Danielle Staub: I Alone Brought Attention to N.J.

Although Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub has been portrayed in an unflattering light, she doesn’t let that get her down.   

“What I’ve learned about myself is to watch more carefully what I do say, and what I do,” the divorced mom of two, 47, tells me. “I try to set a good example for my children through what they’re learning when I’m living.”

Now that shows like Jersey Shore and Jerseylicious are also bringing the spotlight to the Garden State, Danielle is ready to take credit.

“It’s the Jersification of the world,” she says. “I’d like to think it started with yours truly. I brought enough to bring a lot of attention to New Jersey, and I’m going to hold it and keep it.”


What’s the biggest misconception about the state?

“The biggest misconceptions about New Jersey would be that we are filled with gossip,” she explains. “We do not mirror ourselves after the other four women on our show. It’s about being real, being good to one another and family-oriented. I think people are missing it when they think we’re all into shopping. I cook. I cook every day for my kids, and I think they’re missing it. The biggest misconception is we do not spend family time together, but we’re all about family.”

Marriage in the Movies: National Museum Scotland's Costume Exhibition



The Exhibition

The wedding dress is probably the most poignant symbol of the start of a marriage. Woven with symbolism and tradition, wedding dresses reflect not only the tastes and style of the bride but the social customs and attitudes of society.

This exhibition takes you through two centuries of bridal fashion, from the 1740s to 1930s, refracted through the lens of the film or TV camera.

Also on display are a selection of bridal accessories from our collection, and a small gallery of photos of brides from the Stewart family, who own Shambellie House. Together, the dresses, accessories and pictures tell the story of wedding customs in Scotland and beyond.

The dresses in this exhibition were all designed and made for the screen but adhere closely to the period they are set in. In addition, they are charged with telling and reflecting the story they represent.  From Keira Knightley’s magnificent gown from The Duchess to the elegant costume worn by Joely Richardson as Wallis Simpson, all these dresses have a tale to tell.

Check below the cut to see a just sampling of the wedding dresses on exhibition!

Besides the jail time -- Lane will lose his license for three years and will have to complete a 30-month alcohol education program.

Selah, daughter of Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley takes to YouTube to sing a cover of Justin Beiber’s “Up.” 12-year-old Selah says on her page, “I want to sign to Island Records so badly and do a duet with Justin Bieber! I’m afraid to ask my mom to sign me and she’s already signed!” The budding singer has a slew of uploaded videos showing her pipes over tracks by Beiber– she is clearly a big fan! Selah is too cute, and with some growth, and nourishment she might give her mom a run for her money one day!

Lindsay Lohan -- No Daily Shower in Jail

  
Lindsay Lohan's gonna have a hard time staying clean behind bars -- TMZ has learned she will only be allowed to shower every other day once she checks into Lynwood Correctional Facility tomorrow.


Law enforcement sources tell us the jail is all prepared for Lindsay's arrival -- where she'll be staying in her own cell ... in a special module where solitary inmates are held.

We're told Lindsay will not be allowed to interact with other inmates while she's inside her cell -- which could be as much as 20 hours per day. She will be allowed to exercise three times per week.

As far as her diet, we're told Lindsay will get two cold meals and one hot meal every day. Today, inmates had chicken stir fry for lunch ... so it's not too bad.

 
We're told there's no guarantee that Lindsay will be allowed to take all of the medication she's been prescribed -- and jail officials will determine what she can take after she arrives.

Bill Murray Tries To Explain Away Garfield

Be thankful for Bill Murray. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, but every time he does an interview, Murray seems to give answers that are actually honest and thoughtful, as opposed to spitting out a party line. Not that I’d expect much different from a guy who goes against the Hollywood grain. But refreshing nonetheless.

What’s Murray talking about this time? Well, Garfield, for one, and the reason he did the film. And Ghostbusters 3, which he continues to dismiss as “a crock.”

We’re assuming this means that Ratatouille will hit theaters in the next year or two in 3D

Danielle Calls Cops After Man Who Was Arrested With Her Demands $100K

Danielle Staub’s past has come back to haunt her and now the police are involved, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

Danny Aguilar, a convicted felon who was once charged as Staub’s co-defendant, called the Real Housewives of New Jersey star on Sunday night demanding $100,000 he says she still owes him for bailing her out years ago with some big time drug dealers.

Aguilar told RadarOnline.com “My money got her out of trouble with these drug dealers. They wanted her dead and I didn’t want them to kill her.  I paid for it.  We all got popped, everyone went to jail and she snitched.”

Staub was arrested in Miami in 1986 along with Aguilar for extortion and intent to distribute cocaine. Staub entered into a plea bargain with prosecutors and agreed to testify against Aguilar and others in exchange for five years probation and mandatory cocaine testing. Aguliar went to prison.

Aguilar told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview that his conversation with Staub on Sunday night quickly turned ugly, with Staub calling Aguilar a “celebrity stalker.” She threatened to sue him for defamation of character. Aguilar says he told Staub “I’m the ‘Real McCoy, I’m the one that did 15 years in a federal penitentiary over you. I’m no stalker.”

Staub contacted police, RadarOnline.com learned. And 15 minutes after they hung up the phone, Aguilar claims a detective from the Wayne, NJ police department called him and told him stalking is a crime in New Jersey.

We spoke with Captain James Clark from the Wayne Police Department who confirmed that Staub was at the station this morning but would not disclose additional information, saying the matter is still under investigation.

'Damages' renewed (or uncancelled; it depends on who you talk to)

This just in: Patty Hewes will live to fight another day—and we have DirecTV to thank!

After months of negotiations, DirecTV has reached a deal with Sony Pictures Television to acquire Damages from FX. Under the terms of the pact, DirecTV’s 101 network will air two additional seasons of the drama—each consisting of 10 episodes—beginning in 2011.

Unlike DirecTV’s arrangement with NBC for Friday Night Lights, Damages will only air on DirecTV.

“We’re excited to partner with Sony Pictures Television as we breathe new life into this outstanding drama,” said Patty Ishimoto, general manager of The 101 Network and vice president of entertainment for DirecTV. “It’s a win for our customers because only they will be able to see these new episodes and another great step forward for DirecTV as we continue to build our growing portfolio of exclusive, award winning programming.“

Added FX president John Landgraf: “FX was very proud to have developed one of the best scripted series on television, but, in order to have a future, the show needed DIRECTV and we are thrilled they stepped in. Sony Pictures Television is a great production partner and we at FX Productions are excited for these next two seasons.”

DirecTV saves the day again!

One half of the band suggested the new album would be more orchestral and bits of it were like "nothing they'd done before", while the half other alluded to the album "falling back" to the atmospherics and scope of their debut.

The bassist recorded his parts then departed, while a Secret Machine, among others, has joined the live show.

Now it appears the “Scream 4” director will be leaving a little extra money of his own behind in traffic court.

Court records show he handed officers a valid California driver’s license after he was stopped in a 2010 Toyota with a Michigan license plate at about 8 p.m. He faces a $130 fine.

According to Craven’s Twitter.com account, the famed director/producer thought he was stopped by Ann Arbor police and made it known he felt a warning was more appropriate.\

Daniel Radcliffe talks new movie role in "The Woman in Black"



Dan Radcliffe and the filmakers of The Woman In Black, including director James Watkins (Eden Lake), talk about Dan's role in the haunting thriller. The press release also contains quotes from Simon Oakes, who talks about their high hopes for the film with Dan playing the leading character:

“’When I met Dan, it was quite uncanny how closely our thoughts on the story mirrored each other: I can’t wait to get down to work with him to fashion a compelling character and a classy ghost story that tugs at the heart and chills to the bone,” says James Watkins.

Simon Oakes continues, “We’re thrilled to have Daniel on board, I can think of no better actor to play the role of Arthur Kipps. I’m confident that under the direction of James Watkins, he’ll take Jane Goldman’s script and deliver an utterly intense and compelling performance.”

Daniel Radcliffe said, “I am incredibly excited to be part of The Woman In Black. Jane Goldman’s script is beautifully written – both tender and terrifying in equal measure. It is thrilling to be working with James Watkins. From his brilliant work on Eden Lake and also having met him and heard his vision for the film, I know he will make a fantastic film.”

Filming is slated to begin this autumn, with a provisional release date of June 2011 in the UK.

Julia Stiles talks Dexter


Showtime remains tight-lipped about what's going down in the upcoming season of "Dexter," but recently cast Julia Stiles ("10 Things I Hate About You") opened up -- if only a tad -- about her new role and what drew her to the series.

"I watch a lot of shows on HBO and Showtime," Stiles tells the New York Times, "but I was sort of reluctant about working on one -- until 'Dexter' came along, because I also really love the way that they've set up these guest actors. There's always a really interesting arc that a guest needs to do."


It doesn't hurt that she comes on the heels of the series' most-praised guest to date. John Lithgow took home a Golden Globe for his supporting turn as the trinity killer, and that same role recently earned him an Emmy nomination for guest actor.

So will Stiles follow in his serial killer footsteps or might she provide some post-Rita love interest for newly widowed Dexter? It's still up in the air. But what we do know is that the character's name is Lumen, and she's described as "psychologically and physically damaged." Her introduction to the cast presents Dexter with a dilemma -- which sounds like it has love interest written all over it.

For now, the TV newbie just seems excited by the idea of playing a character over the course of a season. "In a weird way it reminds me of the making of the 'Bourne' movies," she says. "The script is always changing, so you might shoot a scene and then all of a sudden you are handed pages, and you have to memorize your lines really quickly. It's like acting in a vacuum a little bit. There's a different kind of challenge, but part of me really likes it."

You can catch Julia on "Dexter" when season 5 premieres September 26.

"We can't discuss medical histories until cast members start revealing things in the 21-day program. But the show is about drug and alcohol addiction. It's not sex rehab. As far as I know, nobody has checked in for love addiction," the spokesman said.

Couture goes haute in Bollywood’s Aisha

Christian Dior and Salvatore Ferragamo aren’t the kind of labels typically associated with Bollywood. But the couture is going unabashedly haute with Aisha, co-produced by Anil Kapoor Films Co. Pvt. Ltd and PVR Pictures.

The female lead Sonam Kapoor and the rest of the cast will be swathed in as many as 60 Dior dresses and accessories in the movie produced by sister Rhea and co-starring Abhay Deol, according to Kalyani Chawla, vice-president (marketing and communications) at Christian Dior Couture. The film releases on 6 August.

It’s the first time that brand integration has shifted from mass market products to high-end fashion brands. The Rs20 crore film also showcases L’Oreal Paris, Portico and posh shopping destination DLF Emporio.

Christopher Hitchens: Mel Gibson Isn't Just An Angry Narcissist



Mel Gibson Isn't Just an Angry Narcissist. His tirades are the distilled violence, cruelty, and bigotry of right-wing Catholic ideology.

By Christopher Hitchens Posted Monday, July 19, 2010, at 11:03 AM ET

Every time Mel Gibson unburdens himself of a tirade against Jews or "n______s" or uncooperative females, there are commentators on hand to create a mystery where none exists. When he produced The Passion of the Christ, which lovingly and in detail recycled the bloody myth that all Jews are historically and collectively responsible for the murder of Jesus, it was argued by many mainstream Christians that his zeal for the faith might be a touch lurid but that the film itself was mainly devotional. When he was arrested on the Malibu freeway and screamed abuse at a police officer to the effect that Jews were responsible for all the wars in the world, pundits convened on page and screen to speculate whether our Mel had too much to drink that evening. Not long ago, I watched him go completely bug-eyed on television at a Jewish interviewer who asked him about the latter incident. "You've got a dog in this fight, haven't you?" he hissed. And now, in the wake of a Niagara of cloacal abuse directed at the mother of his youngest child, in which we were spared nothing by way of obscenity and menace and nothing by way of paranoid and sexualized racism, there have been those who diagnose Gibson's problem as a lack of anger management skills, combined perhaps with a touch of narcissistic personality disorder.

Inception's Dileep Rao Answers All Your Questions About Inception

Over the weekend, Christopher Nolan's mind-bending Inception extracted $60.4 million from moviegoers, leaving many in a limbolike state of confusion. Where to turn for answers? Today, Vulture had the pleasure of speaking with Dileep Rao, who plays Yusuf the chemist in the film (he was also in Avatar, which makes him, in terms of box-office bankability, the Indian Will Smith). Rao helpfully revealed everything he knows — and thinks he knows — about Inception's mechanics. ***SPOILERS*** ahead, obviously.

Modern Family's Two Dads Split Up



There's been a divorce in the Modern Family: Vulture hears that Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, the creators and showrunners of ABC's hit comedy, have decided to dissolve the four-year old business partnership that led to the creation of the show. Neither man is leaving Family, but Levitan and Lloyd will now manage the series as single parents rather than as a couple. So why the split?

While there have been rumors of some professional tension between the two for some time — mostly dealing with differences in style rather than anything juicy — the bottom line behind the separation probably has more to do with, well, the bottom line. Levitan and Lloyd first hooked up in 2006, at a time when TV comedy was struggling mightily and even big-name producers with resumes as impressive as those of Levitan (Just Shoot Me) and Lloyd (Frasier) were having trouble landing big deals. By teaming, the two men hoped to become more attractive to studios, and that's exactly what happened: 20th Century Fox Television signed the newly-minted duo to a very lucrative multiyear deal.

The first few years of the partnership produced only the ill-fated Kelsey Grammer-Patricia Heaton comedy Back to You, which was canceled by the Fox network after one season. But then last fall, Levitan and Lloyd's Family became an instant hit; within months, syndicated repeats of the series had been sold to USA Network for a reported $1.5 million per episode. The odor of Back to You has now been erased and replaced with the sweet smell of success, signaling both a recovery in the TV comedy economy and a big upswing for Levitan and Lloyd's respective careers. In other words, the two men (along with their agents at UTA and ICM) realized they no longer really needed to stay attached.

They'll still work together writing and running Family, but they're also in talks with 20th about continuing at the studio under new, separate deals. Given the fact that Family figures to be around a lot longer, and likely make a lot more money than 20th's other big hit from last season, Glee, don't be surprised if Levitan and Lloyd's new agreements end up in the same range as the big bucks Ryan Murphy is supposedly now making for his services.

No word yet on how the Family kids are taking this, though we hear Rico Rodriguez (Manny!) is already relishing the prospect of separate Christmas presents from his behind-the-scenes TV dads.

Sandra Bullock renews restraining order against Stalker

FYI, Sandra's *other* stalker still is under a restraining order. In 2007, that stalker managed to gain access to Sandra's driveway in Sunset Beach and tried to knock Jesse James down with a Mercedes as Sandra and his daughter watched.

Man believes he has talked to actress telepathically, doctor states




LOS ANGELES - Sandra Bullock obtained a temporary restraining order Monday against a 41-year-old man accused of stalking the Oscar-winning actress since 2003.

Bullock's attorney obtained the protective order on her behalf against Thomas James Weldon, who has been the subject of previous court orders to stay away from the 45-year-old actress.
 

A hearing for a three-year order against Weldon was scheduled for Aug. 6.
 

Bullock first obtained a restraining order in California against Weldon in 2003, but that order expired in 2009. He voluntarily entered a mental institution in Tennessee, and the actress sued the state in 2006 to require them to notify her of his release.
 

According to the court filing, Weldon turned up in a Wyoming emergency room last month complaining of anxiety and sleeplessness. He later told hospital staff that he had driven from Tennessee in an attempt to meet Bullock at her home in Jackson Hole, Wyo. 
 

Declarations from a doctor who interviewed Weldon in Wyoming said that Weldon believes he has communicated with Bullock telepathically. He told doctors that he has not been taking his medications.

Conan O'Brien's Emmy Category Won't Be Televised



I recall the day the Emmy nominations were announced quite fondly, mainly because Conan O'Brien was nominated for hosting an "Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series." It was a delightful morning: daisies stood up a little taller and dogs only pooped on the streets when their owners had baggies to pick it up. We were all excited to watch Conan win the category, mostly because we knew his acceptance speech would be epic, and even though Stewart and Colbert are great too, Conan got shafted and the only thing that can make him feel better is a winged lady in a flowy dress. And, because the two jabs he'd make at Jay Leno (Conan's too classy for more than that) while he was onstage would prevent the entire award show from being the same monstrous waste of time that it always is.

And now, it is with great displeasure that I stick a sewing needle in your balloon and tell you that category will not be televised. The Emmy producers (who have quite a lot of unordered pizzas headed their way) have decided against airing the announcement of the nominees and then the winner of the late night category. One of Conan's writers (Dean Cole) tweeted, "NOT 'NBC' but the powers that be has sent us an email saying that the category we are nominated for will not be televised this year! really?"

I'm desperately trying to remain calm. Do we think Jay Leno did this? He's made the occasional "woe is me" joke about not being nominated, but behind the scenes he could be really miffed about it! If this is his doing, he's worse than the Wizard of Oz: he's more demanding, unafraid of bribing people, and whines and whines until we submit to him and his big face. How is this NOT something he's orchestrating?

THIS BITCH....


Robert Shapiro Quits Lindsay Lohan!

TMZ has learned Bob Shapiro informed the judge in Lindsay Lohan's case, he's no longer representing her.

It is unclear who will represent Lindsay tomorrow when she will turn herself in.

We do not know why Shapiro has left the case. He said publicly he would represent Lindsay only if she agreed to jail and followed his instructions.

Interestingly, Shawn Chapman Holley never signed the substitution of attorney form last Friday to get out of the case. So Shawn may be on the hook.

We're told tomorrow is going to be crazy!

Gerard Butler wears a Chicago Blackhawks hat in Redwings territory



Gerard Butler walks and talks on his cell phone while out and about on Sunday afternoon (July 18) in Detroit, Mich.

The 40-year-old Scottish stud was taking a quick break from shooting his latest movie, Machine Gun Preacher. (He plays a former gang biker and drug dealer who becomes a member of the Assembly of God church.)

Gerry wore a Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup Champions hat as well as a t-shirt with the word “REBEL” emblazoned on the front of it paired with PRPS Barracuda Jeans.

Wearing hockey merchandise is definitely one way to squeeze your way back into my heart, Gerry. Make sure it's Pens stuff next time.

'Score: A Hockey Musical' will open this year's Toronto International Film Festival


It’s appropriate that the Toronto International Film Festival — Canada’s biggest event of its kind and ground zero for Hollywood’s annual Oscar race — should begin with a hockey film. Better than that, a hockey musical.


“Score: A Hockey Musical,” directed by Canadian filmmaker Michael McGowan, will open the 35th annual Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 9. The homage to hockey, with 19 original songs, stars Olivia Newton-John and Nelly Furtado as a hockey zealot.


“I can’t think of a better way to kick off our 35th anniversary Festival than with Score: A Hockey Musical,” said Cameron Bailey, TIFF’s co-director. “It continues our tradition of launching the very best in Canadian filmmaking — although in 35 years this is our first musical romance about hockey. Plan for a fun night on September 9.”


The movie’s ensemble cast includes Allie MacDonald, Stephen McHattie and Dave Bidini of the rock band Rheostatics. McGowan brought the road movie “One Week” to TIFF in 2008, but this is the first time one of his films will launch the fest.


More films scheduled to play this year’s TIFF will be announced in the coming week. Toronto runs Sept. 9 – 19.

10 Mad Men Stars Before They Were Famous

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Most of the stars of Mad Men didn’t have the most impressive resumes before they were hired to work at Sterling Cooper — or rather, Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. As struggling actors, they took on roles that weren’t nearly as glamorous as the decadent ad men (and significant others!) whom they now play.
