Mel B is promoting her own workout dvd. She was in London yesterday on a morning chat show selling the video and then at the launch of International Fitness Week March 14 – 21 at Old Spitalfields Market. Not really feeling her makeup right now. Is it the lips? Anyway, I think this is what she does now. Full Story

This photo cracks me up. Many of you email consistently asking for more Jon Stewart. He’s on your Five Lists. Totally down with that. Stewart’s not papped very often though. Much as you love him, Jon doesn’t sell. And unless he does something wicked and crazy – not likely – he’s not going to land on the cover of a tabloid magazine. Full Story

Salma Hayek, housewife

Have you read the recent New York Times piece on Salma Hayek? I ate up every word. They interview her in Paris at a photo shoot. Then they go to Café de Flore. And she goes on about how she’s a housewife now. A proper Parisian housewife, married to the man who owns Balenciaga and McQueen and Stella McCartney etc etc etc, who cooks dinner every night. Full Story

You need some songs

Jennifer Hudson was in Paris last week for a day. Then it was on to Washington, arriving yesterday. Looks really good. Really, really good. But you know that already. We ALL know that. She went on Weight Watchers and she trained with Harley Pasternak and that made her super popular again, you know being thin and everything, so now she’s promoting a new album … And it better have some good songs… Because Duana and I just talked about this while she was making her oatmeal and both of us trying not to gag at Gwyneth Paltrow’s Glee playing in the background. Full Story

Longer-haired Ben Affleck?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 9, 2011 07:00:06 March 9, 2011 07:00:06

Is his hair longer? It looks it to me. Here’s Ben Affleck on Capitol Hill yesterday talking about Congo. He looks good. The first photo I’m attaching – that smile, or smirk, it reminds me of his role in Shakespeare in Love. You know he plays Ned, and when they finally get the play going, when the narrator with the speech impediment finally gets his words out, and it all goes smoothly, and at the end the audience pauses before erupting into applause, there’s a shot of a cocky Ben like a know-it-all backstage, and that expression sums up to me that era for him. Full Story

Happy Birthday Hayley from Liz who asked me to gift you with some shots of Ryan Gosling and his arms showing? Enjoy! Dani! Happy 27th Birthday! Sorry to hear it’s been a little, um, weird at work lately. You’re right. A good cure for that is the Old School. Steve McQueen and Paul Newman are attached for your sanity. Full Story

Time for Nucky

Speaking of shows I miss - fresh off his Golden Globe win, both for the show and for Best Actor, Steve Buscemi was back on set in Brooklyn the other day working on Boardwalk Empire. When we first started watching the show, Jacek kept calling him Nookie. Rhymes with "rookie". This made me laugh. Full Story

Ryan Gosling and John Mayer fan encounters

Ryan Gosling was in Detroit yesterday as production on The Ides of March has moved there after Cincinnati. Ryan stopped for autographs and a few photos. And that is totally a Josh Lyman tie. I miss Josh Lyman. Is his character a little Josh Lyman-y? OMG can you imagine? Josh Lyman’s personality – and gait – with Ryan Gosling’s everything else? Please let there be a lot of walking and talking in George Clooney’s movie. Full Story

Do you miss True Blood?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 8, 2011 12:03:00 March 8, 2011 12:03:00

The cast of True Blood was featured at PaleyFest 2011 the other day with details, sort of, about what to expect next season. If you’ve been joining the TV LiveBlog with Duana on Thursdays, you’ll note my comment last week about True Blood – that I watch while it’s on, but that once it’s over, I actually don’t miss it. Full Story

That’s it?

For months we’ve been hearing about Blake Lively and her work with Chanel as the face of the brand’s Mademoiselle handbags. And this is the first ad. I don’t think I’m arty enough. Because, well, it’s a little underwhelming, non? Please. I am a low classy pig. Slap me with your leather gloves, one two, on each cheek, one two, la la, cheek to cheek, boring boring, who am I? Karl, you see, shot these himself. Full Story
