The Smutty World of Benjamin Ballet

It started with a curious item in Page Six about a couple of months ago. Benjamin Millepied, Natalie Portman’s fiancé and baby father, was supposedly “obsessed” with her on the set of Black Swan, where they fell in love. He stopped at nothing to have her. He ignored everyone else to be close to her, including a longtime girlfriend… The implication then was that Millepied is a golddigger, determined to get ahead. Full Story

Worse than Lea Michele

It’s official. And I didn’t think it was possible either. For someone on the Glee cast to be MORE annoying than Lea Michele. But it’s actually happened. It’s Dianna Agron. Because while Lea Michele is a lot of things, what she isn’t is DULL. In our business, the business of gossip, not Dull is good. Full Story

Speaking of Carey…

She was out last night in New York at the opening night of the off Broadway play Three Sisters supporting an old friend. Carey and Peter Sarsgaard worked together on An Education. Sarsgaard and his wife Maggie Gyllenhaal are both featured in Three Sisters, and the reviews have been very positive so far. Full Story

Spider-Man has a nice ass

I mean, it was a given that Andrew Garfield would be working on his body to play Spider-Man. And when the promo shot was released, it was encouraging the work he’d put into it so far. But you don’t really appreciate the full effect until you see the full body encased in tightness. Particularly the ass. Full Story

How much would LiLo pay…

To be the dude in between Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy courtside at the Laker game last night? What would she thief in exchange for it? Leo and Tom had a little Inception reunion while watching Los Angeles lose a close one at the buzzer to the San Antonio Spurs. It was a better effort than they’ve put up lately…but for a while now they haven’t been able to bring their best against the better teams in the league, not even with Leo’s golden touch? Maybe Leo’s golden touch doesn’t work until the playoffs. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Gung Hay Fat Choy! Happy New Year!

I had to squeeze in a last minute red manicure yesterday after my ma the Squawking Chicken yelled at me for even suggesting doing it on New Year’s Day.

So…the Year of the Rabbit begins tomorrow or, more specifically, at 11pm on Thursday February 3rd. What can we expect? The Squawking Chicken says it’ll be a lot calmer than the Tiger. Rabbits don’t generally run around fighting and sh-t. But, um, and I’m not going to sugarcoat this for you, if you belong to the sign of the Rabbit, there are some challenges ahead. You’ll have to be extra cautious. Take close care of your health. And, in particular, don’t let anyone try to convince you to do something you don’t want to do this year. Rabbits are vulnerable this year to coercion, you could be talked into something undesirable before you even have a chance to stop and reflect. So be mindful of your decisions, because the wrong decision could have disastrous consequences. Be wary of people coming with advice and a thousand opinions. And check your mouth too –what you say this year, and who you say it to, could bounce back and f-ck you up. Keep your gossip limited to the Hollywood kind, stay away from that sh-t in your real life. Small incidents in a year when your luck is running smoothly stay small incidents. Small incidents in a not so great year (for your Sign, in this case the Rabbit) have a way of escalating into huge dramas. Keep your guard up.

But DON’T PANIC. Every sign, everyone is due for a low year in the cycle. It’s unavoidable. Some years you go for it, you’re aggressive, and some years you huddle, you conserve, you keep your head down and wait it out. Rabbits – this would be the year you play it conservative. That’s all it is. It’s a year of regrouping, of being patient. Chinese astrology, and not the kind you find on websites, is often routed in character development. Luck or lack of luck is a series of tests, it’s how the universe determines whether or not you’re worthy of the good ride. Oftentimes, it’s how you play your low years that determines how high your high years will be. Jacek is a Rabbit too. So we know this won’t be the best year of his life. More importantly though, it doesn’t have to be the worst, so long as you’re smart about the choices you make. And if you’re smart about those choices, when a high year rolls around, the bonuses are plenty. By the way, dogs are protective of rabbits, so there’s that.

Anyway, just like last year, the Squawking Chicken has prepared some protective charms for giveaways. And this year it’s for the Rabbits. It’s especially fortuitous because she’s been in Asia for the winter. She spent weeks collecting these “luck pockets”, and she’s also getting them blessed while she’s over there at the temple. There are 20 available to those born in: 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, and 1999. All Rabbits. If you would like to enter, please email [email protected] with RABBIT as the title by February 17th. We will randomly select from the entries. Ma is back on February 18 and we’ll send them out to you then. What does the “pocket” do? I’ve included a message from someone who received a Tiger charm last year. Check the Shout Outs section.

Wishing you and yours a healthy, happy, and prosperous Year of the Rabbit!

Yours in gossip,
