Trouble already at the House of Twilight. Catherine Hardwicke, director of Twilight and previously confirmed as the director of the sequel New Moon, has been fired. Summit Entertainment and Hardwicke made the announcement yesterday while Hardwicke is currently touring Europe with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson to promote the dazzle, expected today in Paris. Full Story

Am crushing so hard I can’t even speak. Cate Blanchett received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today and apparently this is not one of those cases when the star pays for her own star. This one was supposedly legitimately bestowed, so I hear. And if true, thank God. Because doing it the other way would really diminish her street cred. Full Story

Joan Jett > Bella Swan

My latest favourite bitch Kristen Stewart has just signed to play the title role in a Joan Jett biopic. LOVE! It’ll be a nice change of pace for Kristen especially since she’s to endure more Bella Swan in the sequel to Twilight which should start shooting within 6 months. Even though Kristen’s Bella is infinitely superior to Stephenie Meyer’s own creation, the character does spend the entire 2nd book New Moon crying and fainting and collapsing on the beach under a cloud of heartbreak. Full Story

Yeah it was. Would you walk away from a night with David Beckham to be friends with Tina Fey? Yeah I would. Is Tina Fey > Oprah Winfrey? Yeah she is. MUCH. But for all the “you go girl” ballyhooing that goes on all the time, the estrogen empowerment movement, those MiniVan Majority screechers ready to rip their bras off, sitting in their plush seats at Harpo Studios, do girls really support girls? Especially Quality Girls? Because if that were the case, why aren’t more girls watching 30 Rock? Bet you more girls have watched those f-cking idiots on the Hills than have watched 30 Rock. Full Story

Double girl crush! Last year Cate Blanchett was nominated for Best Actress and Supporting Actress at the Oscars. This year, the same honour could go to Kate Winslet, already the youngest actress to received 5 nominations. Kate’s work in Revolutionary Road with Leonardo DiCaprio is, right now, considered a lock. Full Story

Here they are: Alicia Keys, Sarah McLachlan, Queen Latifah, and Pink too delivering two of the finer performances of the evening, Sarah’s voice as sweet as ever, and Alicia’s electrifying rendition with Superwoman alongside Latifah and Kathleen Battle. If you haven’t had the pleasure, both videos are below. Full Story

Nope. This is Kristen Stewart out and about today in New York and as you can see, as I wrote in the she is gorgeous. Look at that face! Seriously. I came out of that theatre not pining for Rob Pattinson but girlcrushing HARD on Kristen Stewart. Because: - That’s the face of a bitch. That is not Bella. Full Story

It’s full-on Christmas mode. Am still not completely ready but getting there after seeing these photos of my Marion Cotillard at the Champs Elysees lighting ceremony yesterday. Le sigh. Paris. Did she cut her hair? No matter. She is lovely. As always. And still happily in love with Guillaume Canet. Full Story

O is for Olga obsessed!

Someone needs to have a torrid affair with this woman. And I need to know every detail. Because I love her. Maybe Leonardo Dicaprio. Because he’s disappoint her. And only Olga could react properly. Only a girl like Olga, with all her Eastern European drama, would take a Ukrainian axe to his groin if for missing lift off. Full Story

Love Kate Winslet? I can’t imagine. That unremarkable Hilary Swank has 2 Oscars. Kate Winslet has none. What.The.F*ck??? This is a glorious Kate Winslet on the cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair. Kate has 2 movies contending this awards season and could be competing against herself in the Best Actress Category in both Revolutionary Road with Leonardo DiCaprio and The Reader with Ralph Fiennes, even though that film is not without controversy as producers are accusing Harvey Weinstein of messing with a project, yet again, to the point of mutiny. Full Story
