As you know, I’ve been obsessed this week with Jean Claude Van Damme on press tour for The Expendables 2. He’s been bringing it on every carpet. Here’s JCVD being JCVD in Paris. I wonder what his wife is really thinking. I also wonder if he split tests his pants before buying just to make sure they can accommodate his random kung fu kicks. Full Story

Victoria Beckham posted a photo of a tricked out mic on her Twitter a couple of weeks ago - click here for a refresher. I wrote that it was perhaps a sign that she’d finally agreed to perform with the other Spices at the Closing Ceremony. As previously reported, Posh had been cock-blocking the plan, not wanting to compromise her new Fashion Designer identity by reminding us that she originally arrived as a pop star. Full Story

Look at me, I’m JCVD. That’s why he keeps kung fu-ing on the red carpet. And presumably why he’s doing the slap-the-ass dance with a metal sidewalk stanchion in Madrid...? I don’t know. I can’t explain. But I enjoy. In a can’t look away way, I really enjoy a man in all white spraying his legs all over a movie premiere, so grateful and appreciative that he gets to make the occasional movie now and again. Full Story

Sasha and I were emailing about this yesterday - it’s the same joy, though not quite as pronounced, that we get from Mariah Carey’s inability to walk, or her overuse of the word “bleak”, or when she complains about her twin pregnancy and what she had to endure... Such is Ryan Lochte’s dumbness. Full Story

Ryan Lochte was out last night in London. He seems to enjoy getting papped, non? A lot. After London 2012, I wonder how he’ll deal with not being followed and talked about constantly anymore. Look at Ryan Lochte. Ryan Lochte doesn’t want to fade away and live a private life. Ryan Lochte wants it bad. Full Story

I worked 3 junkets for etalk this weekend in LA - Paranorman, Sparkle, and The Odd Life Of Timothy Green.  It was supposed to be 4 but I couldn’t get to LA in time for The Expendables 2 screening. To tell you the truth, I was a little disappointed about that. I mean, if you have to interview celebrities, you may as well interview the ones that really, really, REALLY want you to love them. Full Story

There are so many ways to cut someone down. There is an art to cutting someone down. When it’s done right, it is a beautiful thing. And then we have Karl Lagerfeld. Who is a legend for creating beautiful things and now, in recent years, for saying many beautiful cutting things. Karl spoke to The Sun in the UK; the subject was British girls, in particular the Middletons: “Kate Middleton has a nice silhouette and she is the right girl for that boy. Full Story

Mimi’s lambily received a surprise yesterday: she posted a photo of herself to announce the new single, Triumphant (Get ‘Em), dropping on Thursday. Thursday is Mimi Day. Of course it’s golden luxe. Of course you can’t see one of her arms because it’s just too slender. Full Story

For Sasha and me, obviously today is the best day ever. And, really, it should be for you too. I actually screamed. Sasha chose to channel her excitement in a different way - by attaching this photo:  Full Story
