The Dark Knight after the storm

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

Up all night

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

Sponsored Smut: Heroes!

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

Becks plays...

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

JailBait Ingrate

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

Granny Freeze: the working mom

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

Forever an Old School Gay

Seriously dude… get a laptop. But being gay in the modern era clearly isn’t working for George Michael. Back in the day, before the internets and chat rooms, in-the-dark-park hookups were a necessary part of getting your fix… an erotic little adventure with a hint danger thrown into the mix. Full Story

Best Emmy: Tina Fey

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 22, 2008 07:47:47 September 22, 2008 07:47:47

Here’s a novel idea: write before you can act. Tina Fey became famous for her brain and her sense of humour stands today as the most respected woman in the business. Do parent pimps look to Tina Fey for inspiration? Do they enroll their kids in creative writing instead of Star Search? Doubtful. Full Story

Worst Emmy 2008: Not Alyssa Milano

This is the only photo I could find. Which is shocking. Worst dressed photos sell almost as briskly as best dressed ones. …the f&ck was she thinking??? Am most offended by the small details. Like those shoes. Those Asian massage parlour shoes. Jessica Simpson shoes. Shoes for women with two names - Betty Lou, Connie Sue, Sally Mae, Peggy Lee – who aspire to aging like Dolly Parton: garish makeup, bleached out hair, frosty blue eye shadow, and two pigs fighting under a blanket that make up her ass. Full Story
