SNL’s mistake was giving him too much to say. The key to Michael Phelps is to shut his mouth, take off his clothes, and focus on everything below the head. The Emmy pre-show hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, learning from Lorne’s mistakes, did just that, using the Olympian wisely, leaving the talking to the professionals and finally forcing him to not wear flipflops for a change. Full Story

Catherine Zeta Jones is. Hate to be bitch (actually no I don’t) but if I looked like CZJ, it would greatly distress me every night to have my supple body, that classic face, those pouty lips tied to this for the rest of his life. I know love is more than skin and bones…but can love make lust for skin and bones? This is Michael Douglas, thin skin and oldy bones in New York for the ringing of the Peace Bell at the UN on Friday. Full Story

Gwen Appropriate

Gwen Stefani is a clothes horse. A fashion plate. A style maverick. But only on her own days. In other words – the anti Posh. Gwen and Gavin Rossdale went to a wedding this weekend. Instead of trying to outshine the bride in an extravagant gown that would have been the Mrs Beckham signature move, Gwen wore black and heels and respected the occasion, hanging back with the ladies, not making a spectacle of herself in the middle of the lawn with a wind machine she brought from home…. Full Story

Of course she does. She’s perfect, didn’t you know? And she speaks Spanish, some Italian, can do a brilliant British accent, is adored by Sir Anthony Hopkins, and Steven Spielberg, and Jay Z, and Madonna, and European royalty…but she’s still tight with her high school friends too. Full Story

Few celebrities come out the other end of a family scandal relatively unscathed. Christian Bale however has managed to accomplish just that. Quietly, with dignity, without sitting down opposite Barbara Walters wailing his balls off, or allowing his publicist to leak gratuitous stories in his favour. Rather, Bale put his head down, set his jaw, and let the storm pass, even though the tabloid press was all over him for weeks, baiting him, questioning his on-set conduct, his relationship with his wife, Christian Bale kept his cool and now it’s blown over, with him on the right side completely exonerated. Full Story

Restless all day. Apparently this is how she’s been spending her time. Here are Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson shopping at Fred Segal yesterday, then going for lunch after hitting the club scene several times the last few days. As you can see, Lilo looks super skinny in black skinnys…must be all the working out she’s doing? Word is America Ferrera was not sad to say goodbye after Lindsay wrapped her latest stint on Ugly Betty. Full Story

Love this time of year. It's premiere week! With the writers' strike truncating last season, it feels like it's almost been a year... especially for shows like Heroes which did not return in the Spring. Instead, Tim Kring decided to regroup and refocus after a shaky sophomore slump. Word is the time off has paid off. Full Story

Seems like it’s been forever since we’ve seen David Beckham playing soccer, doing his job. After a long absence, he was back this weekend with the LA Galaxy as Posh cheered on with Eva Longoria Parker. The lines in his face – they’re deeper, more pronounced the last couple of years, non? He is beautiful, quivering, always, still, but the age is unmistakable. Full Story

Suppose this shouldn’t be a surprise… after all, Billy Ray Cyrus is a parent pimp, whoring his kid out to Disney to sustain the acid wash lifestyle he’d been accustomed to after his one hit wonder. Why then should he be expected to instill in his child commodity the value of hard worth and work ethic? Contracts are signed to be broken, right? TMZ  Full Story

When Gwyneth was on Oprah last week, she talked about going back to work, or rather choosing not to work, after having children, explaining that her focus as an “artist” now has been to look for and take on supporting roles instead of leading parts so that she does not have to spend so much time away from her children. Full Story
