Which is...HOT. I think he might be in that new Sly Stallone movie? Bullet To The Head? Anyway, he's been doing some press in New York. God that is something to look at. What's his secret? As he told TMZ: I f-ck a lot. Lisa Bonet only? PS sorry it ended up being so light today. Full Story
Lindsay Lohan went out with my new favourite person last night after her court hearing in LA. That would be her lawyer, of course. Mark Heller is hilarious. And the comparisons are hilarious. Some have called him My Cousin Vinny. Others Saul Goodman. The best one I heard is from a reader called Angela yesterday who wrote that Heller reminded her of Barry Zuckerkorn, the Bluth family’s incompetent attorney in Arrested Development. Full Story
Despite generally positive reviews and five Oscar nominations, the English-language adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo didn’t bowl over the box office. Still, Sony announced they would go ahead with the sequels, which to me was always the point of remaking the Swedish films anyway. Full Story
Have you seen the Jennifer Hudson-Jessica Simpson Weight Watchers commercial? Does it feel like it’s been on a lot lately? The more it’s on, the more I obsess about whether or not they were actually together. They totally weren’t together. Look at how awkward that is -- when they meet on the corner and awkwardly nod, say nothing, and then walk inside. Full Story

Entourage, like its HBO predecessor Sex and the City, is being turned into a movie. Great, so are the boys going to Abu Dhabi too? Entourage gave us douchebags before douchebags took over reality tv. The show was supposed to be super insider-y, but even someone with a passing interest in pop culture would understand most of the references. Full Story

David Beckham is currently at a hospital in Paris where he’s undergoing physical evaluation, a formality before the announcement -- Becks will play for Paris Saint-Germain, back in Europe to end his career. A press conference will follow shortly. And, as you would expect, already the British are sh-tting on the move as a purely commercial endeavour, for both the club and Becks. Full Story
Tina! Happy Birthday! By request, here are a few pretty pictures of Robert Pattinson at the NY premiere of Cosmopolis. And for “Frankie” from Steev -- Happy 30th Birthday! Yes, of course, go get sloppy in Vegas -- it’s the only way. Until then, here are Maxim Lapierre, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Prince, always Prince, to toast your milestone. Full Story
30 Rock ends tonight. Most of the time when shows end, they promote it so hard, the ending of it, that by the time it actually ends you’re thrilled that it’s finally ended. Why has the end of 30 Rock seemed so quiet?
“It’s not funny anymore and the last few seasons sucked and it’s about time for it to be over,” rag, rag, rag, rag, rag.
This though is my favourite piece, so far, on the series finale, honouring a show that, well, wasn’t considered “successful” enough to leave a legacy. That’s...actually kind of OK. Tonight it will be Tina Fey > Mimi. Although last night, because I was packing, I totally forgot about Mimi’s American Idol. Until Lo messaged me with this photo -- see below. For shame! Why would anyone prioritise travel preparation over Mimi? I turned on the DVR immediately to watch Mimi turn every contestant tragedy into an opportunity to talk about the adversities she’s been able to overcome.

I don’t know. I don’t care. It doesn’t matter. Just look. Look at our Mimi in New York today wearing... a sports bra and a long skirt under a leather jacket. Heels, of course. While a security guard holds her hand. It was a good day. Full Story
As you know, poor ticket sales forced the premature cancellation of Katie Holmes’s Dead Accounts on Broadway. It’s now also confirmed that Holmes & Yang, her fashion collection that debuted at NY Fashion Week in September, will not be shown at NY Fashion Week next month. No reason was given but, well, you remember what the first one looked like, non? Click here Full Story

If you watched the Lindsay Lohan court proceedings this morning you understand this - why Mark Heller, her lawyer now, might be your, our new favourite person. Yes. Because of the (maybe fake?) Louis Vuitton briefcase. Yes. Because of the time he tried to bro-down with the judge like they were homies in New York before she told him “Flattery won’t get you anywhere in this court”. Full Story
