Famewhores Articles

Famewhores, attention-seekers, opportunists, and spotlight chasers. Not all of them in poor taste. Cases in point: BB8 and Prince George.

Well, it’s not Vogue…but Victoria Beckham has landed herself another high profile magazine cover. Which means she’s probably given up on Anna Wintour, at least for another few months. Anna would never feature Posh so close after Harper’s Bazaar. Anna might not ever feature Posh… period. Full Story

Self promotion > child safety… After all, if Granny Freeze had had Sunday Rose in a car seat, the paps would not have been able to pull off such a good shot. And above all things, Nicole Kidman must be seen as a doting mother, a woman transformed by her beautiful little girl. Which is why no one has bothered to call her out on it. Full Story

Holiday white wedgies!

The GMD and Little Sci were sighted yesterday in New York…and so were his white wedge sneakers – for extra, extra lift! How many pairs did he custom order? They’re always so new and fresh. You think he has a cobbler on permanent payroll? Someone who knows how to install the height trickery in every pair of new shoes? Like an official Scientologist Cobbler? I am totally convinced… As for Little Sci – so many of you emailed yesterday after seeing Granny Freeze holding her Sunday, remarking that it’s just like how Tom Cruise holds his daughter too… like total novices. Full Story

As I mentioned earlier in the Kristen Stewart post, am told that Lindsay Lohan was supposedly quite desperate for the Joan Jett part that Kristen has just confirmed. In other words, still no roles for Lilo. Which means more paid parties with Samantha Ronson. The two went shopping the other day at Dior, then this morning, Lilo was spotted at LAX, presumably catching a flight to Toronto where Sam is booked to DJ at The Courthouse tonight. Full Story

Shelf Ass Jessica Biel spent part of yesterday touring a new hospital and then hanging out with kids at LA’s Children’s Hospital during the Make The Difference Network holiday party. Clever Shelfy. A new strategy. Taking the Jolie approach. Well played. Because not everyone bothers to dig deep. Full Story

It’s a subtle difference but it’s there – Granny must be taking a break from her surgeon because over in Europe, while promoting the steadily sinking Australia, Gran looks a wee bit softer than she has in a long, long time. Still not natural, oh no, but not like a block of hard marble either. Full Story

She speaks her own language

What makes me craziest? Hearing people, when talking about celebrities, actually trying to relate to them – a frequent theme in my inbox: Lainey, be nice. Lainey, try to understand. Lainey, more compassion please. How would YOU feel if x,y, and z? Answer: I wouldn’t. Because they don’t live in our world, they don’t live by our rules. Full Story

Stay in London...but can he avoid Sienna?

Robert Pattinson returned home to London today in advance of the UK premiere of Twilight. How much you want to bet Sienna Miller will be all over this in a matter of days? If she isn’t already? Not likely. Not yet. Rob apparently went straight to his parents’ so Sienna will have to wait until tonight. Full Story

Oh please. Brad Pitt sat down with Ann Curry yesterday for an interview that aired on The Today Show this morning. He went head to head with Chicken Fried Britney on Good Morning America. Will be interesting to see how those numbers shook out. Anyway, he and Ann discussed Make It Right Full Story

Granny and the GMD were together a long time. You learn a lot over a decade. You learn about contracts and marriage, you learn about fraud, you learn about famewhoring, you learn what to do when your back is up against a wall, when your career is in jeopardy, when you can no longer sell a movie… Get your baby daughter to do it for you! As you know, Australia’s box office was decidedly unimpressive over the weekend. Full Story
