A video has been blowing up the blogs today of Zac Efron apparently dropping a condom on the red carpet when trying to hand something to a publicist-type at the photo wall at The Lorax premiere the other day. As you can see, not only does it fall on the ground, he then almost seems to go out of his way to look embarrassed and amused by what happened, so as to draw even more attention to it. Full Story

The Academy Awards are fast approaching.  I’m already in LA preparing for our coverage, Duana arrives today, and it’s going to be wall to wall Monday so get ready.  But while the Oscars are about celebrating last year’s top movies, February’s box office has been surprisingly strong as new films are opening every weekend, taking us right into March for The Hunger Games (!!!) and then before long it’ll be box office season. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I woke up unsettled this morning and rather unwillingly. Because Prince William was in my dream and, like, REALLY hot. Now you know I’m for Harry, always. So it was weird, seeing Will with all his hair, on his army rescue ship in a grey t-shirt with really nice arms.  Read Full Intro
