The Super Bowl dominated entertainment headlines for most of the weekend and, well, let’s face it – most people who read People don’t care about the Writers Guild Awards anyway.

Two weeks ago I posted this article about Chelsy Davy hanging out with date rape-y looking rich boys in Zimbabwe with pap photos taken from curiously close distance, positing that she’d either been sold out by her mates or that she certainly didn’t mind seeing these pictures published for the effect it might have on Hot Harry on a Horse. Full Story

Matt Damon was not in Dallas for the Super Bowl. Instead, he spent the weekend in Malibu with his wife and all their girls. They have a lot of girls. And he does make giant movies and is a huge f-cking movie star but somehow Matt Damon finds time to shoot 30 Rock cameos and Jimmy Kimmel joke clips and Entourage appearances and produce independent films and work as the ambassador for a charity called One X One and shoot ESPN interviews about Mike McCarthy that crack us up. Full Story
