I.Love.Him. I loved him before. But then, when he guest hosted with Kelly Ripa and bitch slapped the Lohans… oh la, Anderson Cooper made the list for life. “Apparently these people, these horrific people, the Lohans, they’re quite well known… ?”Amazing. “And there’s this perfectly nice, allegedly 14 year old girl, looks to be more like 60 – no I say that with concern and love – and she allegedly wants to be a singer and or actor slash performer of some sort of striptease person, I don’t know…” SO amazing. Full Story

It’s their first Christmas as husband and wife, they’ll be ringing in the new year for the first time as Mr and Mrs BJZ, and as usual they’re spending it on the boat. Beyonce loves the yacht.

All of a sudden she was shoved down our throats: on Oprah, at the Grammys, and the worst… at the Oscars!

In June People Magazine named Mario Lopez its Hottest Bachelor. So much to choose from and … Mario Lopez? Him? Ew! Of course he milked every last drop out of that sh-t, even posing with his own centrefold for the paps. He also recreated Brad Pitt’s infamous scene from Thelma & Louise. Full Story

“I am truly grateful for the honor that the Academy bestowed upon me last year. I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination and in an effort to maintain the integrity of the Academy organization, I withdrew my name from contention.

Everything about her that night. Oh my God her dress. And her hair. Of course her face. Her shock at winning over Julie Christie. Le sigh. I love her so much.
