This is Jennie Garth arriving at Fox & Friends this morning in New York. Garth and Peter Facinelli announced their divorce 5 months ago just weeks before her 40th birthday. Well that must have been fun - a new decade and suddenly single and, well, of course, it’s what happens because it has to happen . Full Story

Here’s the new PEOPLE cover. As you can see, they picked a shot of his “sad eyes”. His world is “shattered”. It’s his “private pain”. That’s what we, the women, respond to isn’t it? Tom Cruise the victim? He is hurting. He needs a hug. That may have been his only play but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad one. Full Story

Anne Hathaway: pimples and eye-rolls

Anne Hathaway is Catwoman. And I really wish these comic book people would make up their minds about when to use one word or two words for the titles of their superheroes. Batman, Catwoman, Superman... But Spider-Man has to have a hyphen. And Iron Man is two words completely. Oh wait, nerds, let me guess. Full Story

She’s wearing white Donna Karan. Basically a wedding dress. You’ve seen it a thousand times. What’s new here, or new-ish, at least since last year’s Met Gala, is Ashley Greene’s thinnification. Ashley Greene was always fit. She had a great body. Slim but strong and seemingly healthy.Somewhere along the way though, as they do in Hollywood, someone must have told her she was “too athletic”, and “not delicate enough”. Full Story

After a few months of staying relatively undercover following her split from Ashton Kutcher (due to his humiliating infidelities), Demi Moore seems to be re-emerging on the scene just in time for award season. I think we just might see her negotiating for a presenter spot at the Oscars, if not to hail her recovery than to rally support for her abomination of a movie with Miley Cyrus. Full Story

Demi Moore was in New York last night for the premiere of Margin Call. She was wearing her wedding ring. As you can see, she’s so gaunt these days it might fall off. Face or body? You know the dilemma. You choose body, you lose your face. You choose your face, you have to accept that your ass might get bigger. Full Story

Take a look at Jennifer Hudson on the cover of SELF. As you know, I’ve been cutting my eye at her for the last little while over the whole “let’s make her popular since she’s thin now!” situation. For the media to fixate on this is one thing. What bites my ass is that she’s kinda bought into it too. Full Story

A friend bbmed me the other day - “is there something wrong with me because Turtle is so hot?” Turtle IS hot. Check him out waiting for his car outside a restaurant last night in Hollywood. Super cute, right? Made headlines a few weeks ago when he revealed he’s lost 55 lbs this year and his now walking down the beach shirtless with hot girls. Full Story

On the Break Up Diet?

A reader called Alisha sent this in yesterday - thanks Alisha! It’s a very thin looking Jessica Biel in Toronto on Sunday at a French pastry house called Nadege. I just saw her three weeks ago in San Diego for Comic-Con. She was thin, yes, but in a healthy way. Like, it wasn’t alarming. Maybe it’s the angle of this shot, but if I were to Photo Assumption, I’d say she’s on the break up diet. Full Story
