Heidi! Happy Belated 40th Birthday with love from Helena ...and Ramon! Have I mentioned that Ramon is the best name ever? Let’s make that an annual tradition. Hope you’ve had a great week. Celebrate at Club 40 well into the New Year! Full Story
I’ve been yelled at recently, specifically in reference to the SAG and Golden Globe nominations, and sh-tty Downton Abbey receiving so many of them. The show sucks. It has sucked since Season 1. It really, really sucked this Christmas. Half of them look like they’ve checked out. Half of them actually looked jealous of Cousin Matthew, hoping for the same fate. Which, I mean, that’s fine. Because it’s just a soap opera and you enjoy it for the escapism, sure. But if that’s the case, why aren’t they inviting Days Of Our Lives to the Beverly Hilton? Terribly unfair.
Jessica Simpson decided to take over the holidays so I’ll be light posting the next couple of days and Monday and we’ll return to a full blogging schedule on January 2, when I have to get back into regular pants again.

I know it’s supposed to be Lauryn Hill and the St Francis Choir and it’s blasphemy for me to suggest imagining Mimi as the subject of the song but... Look at her. Our Mimi. Look at her and tell me, don’t these lyrics apply? Clearly as the sun above Melts the clouds of sin and sadness Drive the dark of doubt away Giver of immortal gladness Fill us with the light Fill us with the light Oh fill us with the light of day It is Christmas.

Jennifer Garner was recently voted Celebrity Mother of the Year by Today’s Parent Magazine. We can now vote on good parenting, as if it’s a singing competition or best dressed list. Motherhood has become such an intricate part of celebrity culture that it should be commoditized, like a beauty contract or perfume, packaged as an extension of an actress’s career. Full Story

Many of you have emailed to fret about some of the reviews. Les Miserables is currently sitting at 72% on Rotten Tomatoes and 61% on Metacritic which doesn’t suck, no, but there have indeed been certain critics who’ve been vicious in their disdain: it’s so melodramatic, and amateurishly so; there are too many close-up shots when people are singing; there is too much singing.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin, and their kids flew LA to NYC yesterday, arriving at JFK with several suitcases, presumably to spend Christmas somewhere in New York. I say somewhere because they’ve a place in the Hamptons and an apartment in Manhattan and there’s always Beyonce’s. Full Story

I was admittedly disappointed when I saw these shots of Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield this weekend. According to the photo agency, they’d spent an hour in a pet store hoping for a puppy... In a pet store!?!?!!? Pet stores are notorious for selling puppies from puppy mills. BUT. Full Story

Mighty Oprah Winfrey has felt a lot less … mighty these days, hasn’t she? On Friday, Oprah abruptly fired CAA and her agent Kevin Huvane, who is incredibly powerful in his own right. His past and present roster includes Meryl Streep, Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Keanu Reeves, Nicole Kidman, Clive Own, Sarah Jessica Parker, Uma Thurman, Renee Zellwegger, Julianne Moore and Ethan Hawke, and, as many of you know, his brother is publicist Stephen Huvane (Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Anne Hathaway, and more).

From Ashton Kutcher to Demi Moore: Divorce papers. TMZ broke the story on Friday afternoon that Kutcher had filed in LA that day with some bullsh-t explanation like he’d waited a long time so as to preserve Demi’s “dignity” but had no choice but to make the move now because Demi wasn’t acting on it.

Will you take your place with me?
I’ll be there in spirit as we’re in Tofino where there are no theatres but I swear if it wasn’t two hours along a narrow treacherous path, I’d totally make the drive tomorrow to see Les Miserables again, even though the critics are sh-tting on it. They don’t hear the people sing.
Just a quick programming note before we get to everything else: today is business as usual but the site will not be updated on December 25 or December 26 (unless something truly monumental breaks -- and if that’s the case, I’ll drop my turkey drumstick and come running right away). We’ll return December 27 for some light posting and full content and regular scheduling will resume on January 2. Read Full Intro
