Guy Ritchie

Sunday, August 31, 2008

"Till Death Do Us Part"... a title of an old Madonna song, and it looks like she knew what she was singing about. After rumors spread about the celebrity couple's fights and the potential break-up, Guy Ritchie cleared the air by publicly saying he and Madonna will not renew their vows, as there is no need for that. He also spoke about the birthday party Madonna was given, which reportedly cost $200,000. More about this can be found here. Also, Guy Ritchie has been seen at the pub he owns, with *gasp*, his sons Rocco (8) and David (2). And although their nanny was present, this whole hoopla reeks of Jude Law.

Karl Lagerfeld

Playing easy-to-get!

One of the most influential and important designers, Karl Lagerfeld, gets cuddly! A teddy-bear inspired by this fashionable big-shot will soon be released. Karl himself designed the toy, and the manufacturer Margarete Steiff is entrusted to produce the first couture teddy bear. To see the teddy-bear in question and read the whole story, click here.

The Sex-Files

David Duchovni, the star of such shows as "The X-Files" and "Californication" (currently airing on Showtime) has voluntarily signed up for a therapy in order to cure his sex addiction. He has issued a statement begging the media for privacy, while he and his wife (actress Tea Leoni) deal with this "issue". Whatever. I honestly believe there is no such thing as addiction to sex. It is more likely Leoni decided to lock her husband away while she's dealing with menopause. Full story here.

Lindsay Lohan

Ronson drama!

Ooh, this is juicy! Seems like Michael Lohan, the estranged father of LiLo (yet very present in the media), who until yesterday applauded Lindsay's relationship with Samantha Ronson, has now very loudly criticized his daughter's taste in women. He has said naughty stuff about Ronson, like using Lindsay to become famous (probably true) and has even created a rumor that Ronson is writing a "tell-all" book about Lindsay and herself (definitely not true, who in the world would buy that?!). And now Ronson has published a very heated blog post on her MySpace page, where she claims she has no need to defend herself... Umm, why write a blog then? But I think the best reaction comes from Lindsay herself, who also blogged, but stayed true to the rules of showbiz - and managed to promote her song "Confessions of a Broken Heart" in her post. Kudos. To read a more detailed story, click here, and to read the blog posted by Ronson, click here.


t.A.T.u. are the new faces of Marc Jacobs

The controversial designer hired a controversial band to promote his new Autumn/Fall 2008. collection. The girls are controversial because they pretended to be underage lesbians some 10 years ago. He is controversial because he stuffed Victoria Beckham in a shopping bag last year. I can't wait! Full story here.

Nicolette Sheridan

The wedding is off

The star of "Desperate Housewives", Nicolette Sheridan, broke up with her fiancé Michael Bolton on "amicable terms". Since they have been engaged since March 2006, I say we should have seen this coming. Nicolette seems to me very much like her "Desperate Housewives" character Edie Britt, so this comes as no surprise. Besides, if she indeed is anything like Edie, she'll be just fine. She is one tough cookie. Full story here.

Ellen Degeneres

Back to Kodak!

The recently wedded comedian Ellen Degeneres is the last in the long line of ultra-celebrities who have been scheduled to appear at an event organized to raise awareness about cancer. Celebrities who are also slated to attend are Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Aniston, Kirsten Dunst, Meryl Streep, Christina Applegate, Charlize Theron, and many others. And if this reminded you of the Oscars, just wait until you find out the event is being held at the Kodak Theatre! Full story here.


Cher to play "Catwoman"?!

Heath Ledger hasn't yet got an Oscar nomination, and the studio executives are already thinking about the next installment of the re-invented "Batman" series. And guess who they want to play the sexy, mysterious, (semi)femme-fatale Catwoman? Cher! Sure, she's won an Oscar, but she's 62 for crying out loud! And no, I also wouldn't want to bring back Halle Berry, but why not Michelle Pfeiffer? And more importantly, why Cher?! Full story here.


Their children eligible for financial aid?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's six children are eligible to receive $2,600 a month! It turns out the French have a very good social care system when it comes to things such as "nanny payment" and "orphan allowance". And the best part is - you get it regardless of your financial status! And since Brad registered their kids in France, the brats are eligible! Full story here.

Janice Dickinson

Mrs. Competitive

I love this. Janice Dickinson appeared at some fashion event in order to promote the upcoming season of "Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency", and someone asked her about transsexuals (just in case you didn't know, transsexuals are all the rage in Hollywood these days). Janice replied that she already went tranny in her first season, and that it was quite expected Tyra Banks would knock her off at some point. I love Janice, she is such an inspiration. :)

Felicity Huffman

A piece of Madonna

Wow, looks like the women of Wisteria Lane are really desperate to be in the news today! After the rather serious story on Teri Hatcher, comes a lighter one about her "Desperate Housewives" co-star, Felicity Huffman. Huffman has recently stated in the interview that she tried on Madonna's (used, I presume) underwear, while filling in for the Material Girl on Broadway. For the whole story, click here.

Teri Hatcher

Hatcher's uncle dies in prison

Although this may sound like a plotline out of "Desperate Housewives", it's 100% true. Teri Hatcher, the star of one of the most popular shows on TV and many low-budget flops, was abused as a child by her uncle. This guy then went on to molest two other girls, until he was finally arrested and imprisoned for 14 years. Now that he is dead, Teri commented on the situation, adding she was abused when she was only five years old. Full story here.

Donald Trump

He likes to move it, move it

The biggest social event of the past few weeks turned out to be a party thrown by Donald Trump in celebration of his new hotel opening in Dubai. Christina Aguilera was in charge of keeping people entertained. Among the many celebrities to attend, most spotted were Hilary Swank, Lucy Liu, Orlando Bloom and many others. For pics, click here.

The Queen of Pop, who turned 50 a year ago, defied her age at the premiere of her "Sticky and Sweet Tour" in Cardiff last night.

Dirty Harry

The controversial play "Equus", starring (naked) Daniel Radcliffe and "Harry Potter" co-star Richard Griffiths goes to Broadway! After successfully mooning England, "Equus" goes USA, and what better way to celebrate it, than be featured in "Vogue"?

Matthew McConaughey

Organic fertilizing

Matthew McConaughey, the over-hyped actor who starred in "Sahara" (I can't remember any other movie) turns out to be crazy, too. See, he decided to plant his newborn sons placenta in his orchard. And no, this isn't just gossip, it's something he said in an interview. He says he hopes it will fertilize the land. More on this b/s here.

Beyonce is white.

This is hilarious. In the new L'Oreal ad campaign, Beyonce looks white! Of course, as soon as the commercial and the above pic leaked online, L'Oreal's PR denied that any Photoshop work had been done. I'm not buying it. And I also don't get why in the world would they airbrush Beyonce to look white, when women everywhere spend mucho moola on cosmetics in order to look darker! L'Oreal is obviously rasist. Either that, or Beyonce is becoming an albino.

Paris Hilton

Vote 4 Paris!

The one and only Paris Hilton, who was recently spoofed in the latest McCain ad, decided to fight back! So Ms. Hilton made one hilarious video, once again proving that blonds always win! Check out the video below and make sure you tell me what you think!

Britney Spears

Britney Spears to star in the new Tarantino movie!

The pop-princess is reportedly being cast in Tarantino's remake of "Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" as a stripper! Tarantino says he is sure that she will be great in the roll (?) and she says it could really turn her career around. I'm thinking "Crossroads" meets "Death Proof" would be brilliant! Full story here.

Paris Hilton

Hilton vs. McCain

The 27-year-old socialite, actress, singer and what-not is not too happy about the McCain commercial featuring herself and Britney Spears. In the commercial, Barrack Obama is compared to them in terms of stardom, as if he is only a celebrity face and unable to be president. While Britney Spears has basically ignored the whole thing, Paris cares about politics (!) and would prefer to be left out of it. Check out the video below. Full story here.

Helen Mirren

Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley doesn't want her breasts airbrushed

Keira Knightley is desperately trying to stop the studio executives from enhancing her boobs for display on the promotional material for her upcoming movie "The Duchess". She has already been through all this with "King Arthur". However, I can't help but wonder - is it really necessary? I can only think of two more examples for this - Angelina Jolie for "Tomb Raider" (utterly unnecessary) and Emma Watson for "Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix" (creepy). Does that actually help the movie earn more!? Full story here.
