“"Julia needs a lot of hugging and holding." – Garry Marshall, director of Pretty Woman, on Julia Roberts when she was 23. 23 is when Julia Roberts called off the wedding, just days before she was supposed to marry Kiefer Sutherland.

Remember the modified version of the 90210 theme song they would play when the show came back from the commercial break for the last block of an episode? It wasn't exciting like the opening but really slowed down? Sort of sad and yet comforting, to indicate that Brandon or Brenda has learned a lesson the hard way? That's what I hear when I look at these pictures of this week's 90210 reunion. Full Story

That’s 52 weeks ago... June 29, 2012... A Friday... I was in studio at CTV Vancouver shooting my hits for etalk. My window is usually from 9:30am - 10am PST. I wrapped up and it happened. An announcement: Katie Holmes had left Tom Cruise. This would kick off a solid three months of amazing scandal. Full Story

Out of nowhere today, Gaby Hoffmann is back! As if it wasn't delightful enough just to see an old familiar/beloved face from your childhood (or mine anyway), she's returned to reveal wonderfully horrible details about Mel Gibson: "He screamed at me. Oh, God, he really screamed at me," is how she described working with Mel, otherwise known as The Perpetual Motion Machine of Hate and Creepiness. Full Story

Madonna was in New York last night for the screening of her MDNA tour film. As you can see, she’s revived her interpretation of Marlene Dietrich, the “double drag”. (Click here for a good scholarly read on “double drag”. Full Story

Remember when Nicole Kidman dated Lenny Kravitz? For that matter, remember when Nicole Kidman dated Q-Tip?!? Right?! You totally forgot! Nicole Kidman and Q-Tip! Yes. Before Nicole found Keith Urban, she was with Q-Tip and she was with Lenny. And last night, as she accompanied Keith to the CMT Awards, they all ran into each other backstage and posed for a photo. Full Story

George Clooney and Matt Damon were in the English countryside continuing work on The Monuments Men. The photo agency has labelled the other dude as Jean Dujardin...but that doesn’t look like him to me. You? Anyway, what a great opportunity to segue back, again, to Behind The Candelabra. Full Story

It was the second Thursday of Cannes. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were at a party. The paps shot them from across the street -- rare photos of the two of them kissing and loving. With video! It was very romance, per Borat Sagdiyev. Three weeks ago, when I was planning our Cannes coverage, I had this day marked as an anniversary celebration for Twi-Hards. Full Story

They’ve all been pretty visible the last few days, with the exception of Kate Moss who’s been known to attend the MET Gala so it wouldn’t be surprising if we see her in New York tonight. Amber Heard was in New York yesterday photographed walking around in a long black and white skirt. Full Story

Chris Kelly + TLC + Oprah (and Mark Wahlberg)

Such depressing news last night/this morning about the death of Chris Kelly, who was half of Kriss Kross. It’s a mind f*ck in these situations when THIS is the way you’re reminded of a star from your childhood, someone you haven’t thought about in years. People like Chris are frozen in time for us; we don’t see the journey that leads from child star to (reported) drug overdose, so it’s a shocking story to hear no matter how many times this happens. Full Story
