Robo Katie was spotted yesterday hooking up with “friends” before taking Little Sci out for ice cream. Remember when Katie Holmes and Chris Klein broke up and she was enjoying her freedom in NYC and dating Josh Hartnett and suddenly the GMD swept her off her feet and they were in Rome and Paris and her friends back in New York were like – um, we can’t reach her anymore. Full Story

This week’s Us Weekly is about Pippy’s love triangle – Cammie D vs Shelfy Biel and he’s loving every minute, deliberately “torturing” Jessica while he’s at work with Diaz. But as I wrote yesterday, Beige Biel has to swallow it. Because what else is there? While Cameron receives script after script, Biel is waiting for everyone else to pass before she can get her shot. Full Story

Guess who loves Manolo Blahnik? Of course. Carrie Bradshaw. Get what movie is coming out soon? And the new poster was just released this week. Full Story

You know, I never thought Angelina Jolie was be a dressing gown kind of woman. My Angelina Jolie sleeps naked. Having said that, in my Jolie fantasies, she never has to worry about propriety while holding her children out in public on a balcony announcing to the world that relations are solid between her and her in-laws. Full Story

From one extreme to the other

As noted earlier this week, that Grazia report about George Clooney giving up the Italian Queen was totally full of sh-t. She made him issue an immediate denial and then she showed up on set in Hawaii to hold his hand. Am I the only one who is amused that they eat at craft? It’s like they’re real people who can handle real food! So no, not breaking up, not splitting. Full Story

A Holy Twin shed tears

Sh-t. Wonder if it’ll be a bad day. All this confusion about which twin is which – yesterday several agencies misidentified Knox Leon for Vivienne, or vice versa, I can’t remember, after the photo agency mixed them up. Can you blame them? Here they are side by side on the balcony and I’m STILL having a hard time telling them apart. Full Story

That’s a sleepover outfit, non? Reese Witherspoon stepped out with her boyfriend Jim Toth yesterday to hit up the supermarket dressed very casually in sweats and uggs just 2 days after her birthday and a weekend with him in Ojai, no kids. Cosy. The two apparently stocked up on some wine and snacks. Full Story

Adrien Brody sat next to Spittle Gerry Butler and his dorky ass pants yesterday at the Laker game. But while Brody has the edge on the style front – he looks SO good right now – Spittle got the seat closest to Jeffrey Katzenberg. And right now for Brody, career is more important than clothing. Full Story
