Remember in high school if something embarrassing happened in class, like in gym, maybe you bent over awkwardly and flashed your ass, or Toby told everyone he took your virginity, or you totally missed your high note at the recital, or Max declared he didn’t want to go steady anymore during lunch in front of all your friends and was holding hands with Claire by next period…remember? Me? All of the above. Full Story
That asstalking ingrate Katherine Heigl was not at the Globes on Sunday. Unlike previous years, Grey’s was not represented at the show because, well, it sucks. The second half of 2008 was very, very quiet for Heigl. After shooting off her mouth about her writers’ undeserving plotline, she smartly disappeared for while, did not go shopping every day with the paps, and has since remained very much undercover, celebrating her first year anniversary recently, collecting a meaningless People’s Choice Award and, yes, spending time with mom, her manager.

Britney Spears introduced her “tour team” on her website yesterday. As previously reported, Jamie King has replaced Wade Robson and a new choreography team is on board too. Meanwhile her former manager Johnny Wright spoke very candidly about the new Chicken Fried tour – Circus has moved ahead at an alarming pace considering Britney was still completely unstable a year ago, running around Los Angeles with Adnan the shady pap and a British accent.

Anne Hathaway was on the January cover, now Blake Lively has been chosen for February… Victoria Beckham only has 10 more tries this year for US Vogue. Oh shame. Blake Lively > Victoria Beckham? Indeed. Blake Lively who? Exactly! Any self respecting fan of Gossip Girl knows this is an unworthy choice. Full Story
First official outing for Naomi Watts since the birth of her second son Samuel Kai exactly a month ago today. Naomi and Liev Schreiber attended the Defiance screening in New York last night.

What else is there to talk about? The Globes of course! A double win for Kate Winslet…but will she even make it to the Oscars?
Oh God – who’s the other one?
Oh no she didn’t. Oh yes she did.
She forgot the Jolie.
Will they spare her? Will the Brange have mercy?
This is why we love the Globes, right? Full Globes wrap-up is below, most recent articles will appear closer to the top, early articles near the bottom so if you want to read in sequence you’ll have to scroll down, click “view more articles”, and start from there.
But first…about Gran Torino. As I keep repeating: never, ever count out Clint Eastwood. He owned the box office this weekend delivering a knock-out punch to Bride Wars so he’ll be surging towards an Oscar nomination, look out.
Um… like… Gran Torino sucked. Total balls. And it’s Clint Eastwood, you know? And the critics, on Rotten Tomatoes it scored 75%. So it was inconceivable, when we went on Saturday, that we’d leave the theatre, all four of us, looking at each other asking ourselves: did we miss something? Maybe we’re not evolved enough to get it. We must not be evolved enough to get it. Because, though predictable, the story was alright, the script could have worked…just the acting, oh la the acting. There is better acting on The Hills. For reals. My husband was still laughing, laughed himself to sleep over the utter sh-tassness of it that night.
Apparently critics are afraid of Clint Eastwood too…?
Monday – it was a busy, busy, BUSY weekend. Globes first, then more smut…
Yours in gossip,
It’s Turtle and his girl this weekend in Hollywood pretending to be all shy and sh-t for the paps. Why??? Here are Jerry Ferrara and Jamie-Lynn Sigler at Madeo the other night. Jerry of course attended the Globes with his boys on Sunday. They went home empty handed. And deservedly so. This season was balls. Full Story
