At the Tate Benefit w/ 2 of the great ladies of NYC: SJP & Sedaris!: Latest Instagram Pic From bravoandy
Who wouldn’t go gaga over Lady Gaga herself?
The singer strutted a high slit black gown at the Emmys, revealing a tattoos and body parts. If you ask the boys, she should’ve flaunted some cleavage as well. Such a feat isn’t enough. She could’ve done herself a favor and wore it to the benefit for the earthquake and tsunami victims instead. In that way, the dress could relate because it’s missing a sleeve, as those calamity victims are missing their homes and some members of their families.
Nobody finds it hardcore, nor fashion-forward, and it’s not even attractive at all, except to the mean eyes of critiques. Namely, me.
Besides, big shoulders aren’t trendy anymore. Go ahead, confirm it with the fashion police.
Pictured above and below is Gwyneth Paltrow arriving at ‘The 3rd Annual ‘Bent on Learning’ Benefit in New York City. Which isn’t that intresting, at all. But this story about Gwyneth Paltrow being the only hero that American needs is however. People reports:
Clarke was rushing to get to work at the Twin Towers in New York City when she jaywalked in order to get to the subway station. As she crossed 7th Avenue, a Mercedes SUV came barreling toward her.
Both Clarke and the car stopped in their tracks, and as the driver waved her across she realized it was Paltrow behind the wheel. The near-collision caused Clarke to miss her train, and by the time she got to work, the first plane had hit the World Trade Center. “At that time I was annoyed at everything that made me late that day, including Gwyneth Paltrow.”
When contacted by The Morton Report, Paltrow’s publicist Stephen Huvane confirmed the accuracy of the incident and added that Paltrow, 38, was “deeply moved” by the story.
So let this be a lesson: Next time you’re annoyed with Gwyneth Paltrow, imagine how Paltrow-related irritations may actually be saving your life, in the manner of an irritating granule of sand turning into a pearl in the mouth of an oyster.
Y’know I think I can actually credit Gwynnie with helping me lose a couple of those Holiday pounds lately. Just staring at her face makes me so nauseous I completely lose my appetite.
Thanks Gwynnie! xoxoxo
Happy birthday to the sextuplets of Jon and Kate Gosselin!
Alexis Faith, Hannah Joy, Aaden Jonathan, Collin Thomas, Leah Hope and Joel Kevin Gosselin turn seven today (older sisters Cara and Mady are 10).
Naturally, one of the two birthday parties Kate Gosselin will throw for the kids will be for the benefit of the TLC cameras for airing on Kate Plus Eight.
The second will be at home. No word if she will invite Jon Gosselin to that one, but they’ve actually gotten along better lately, so here’s hoping.
In any case, happy birthday to six adorable youngsters …
Kids. They grow up so fast.
Needless to say, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel have not had your standard upbringing. Hopefully things mellow out in the coming years.
Taylor Swift is aiming to assist Alabama.
The singer will raise money for victims of recent tornadoes in that area by holding a dress rehearsal on May 21 in Nashville.
Over 13,000 tickets to the special performance will go on sale, with proceeds going to those in need.
“I was watching the coverage of the tornadoes backstage at rehearsals, and wanted to do something for the families affected by the damage,” Swift writes on her website.
“I’ve never opened a rehearsal to the public before, but I felt that inviting my fans to the last rehearsal for the Speak Now tour would be a great way to raise money.”
Hundreds were killed when a natural disaster struck Alabama April 27. Charlie Sheen has actually visited Tuscaloosa and also set up a charity to benefit the region.
As for Swift’s Speak Now Tour, it kicks off in Omaha on May 27.
You know how Charlie Sheen allegedly shot then-fiancée Kelly Preston in the arm way back in 1990? Well, he claims he didn’t fire the gun. At a recent stop on his Violent Torpedo of Nonsense tour, he explained he was making coffee while he thought she was asleep and (according to E! online)…
“I was downstairs early in the morning making coffee and I thought she was still asleep upstairs,” he said, regaling the crowd. “And I heard a f–king gunshot go off. I thought, ‘She did it, she finally f–king did it. She killed herself and they’re going to f–king blame me.’
“So I abandoned the coffee, because a gunshot in the morning will wake you up better than a nice cup of coffee,” he said, drawing increasing laughs from the crowd.
“I come around the corner and there’s naked Kelly Preston at the top of the stairs, holding her wrist, staring at me, covered in blood…and I thought, that’s pretty f–king hot,” he explained, before quickly adding, “I didn’t. I didn’t.”
“She explained to me when she lifted my pants off the scale in the bathroom…the tiny revolver I used to carry…it fell out of the back jeans pocket and hit the floor and shot a bullet right between her legs,” he explained amid much interjecting from his onstage cohort. “So she got hit with shrapnel from the toilet bowl.”
When refuting accusations that you shot your fiancee make sure to casually drop that she’s a crazy bitch who was going to kill herself anyway. For the benefit of the dudebros listening to the story mention that she was like totally naked and covered in blood. Like in horror movies man, it was so hot! Haha, kidding, but not really. Blahblah blah, she set of the gun (maybe purposefully, right?). Then BAM, toilet shrapnel. Totally foolproof story. Next time try to include how she just made it up to get your money for that extra touch of douchery that makes a story credible.
Sources say Mel Gibson has struck a plea deal with prosecutors in which he’ll plead no contest to simple battery for assaulting Oksana Grigorieva and be sentenced to counseling with no jail time. He’ll appear in court on Friday to enter the plea.
Mel’s lawyer says he only sought a plea deal for the benefit of his children, adding: “I know from almost 20 years as a criminal defense lawyer that sometimes justice can come for a client at too high a personal price. That is particularly so for Mel, whose right to due process can only be exercised in this case with an enormous media circus attached.” Being a celebrity can be so hard.
Tough to call this one. Idiotic, anti-Semitic, alcoholic on one side… Money grubbing, gold digging, manipulative whore on the other… I’ll go with Mel on this one, even if he did slap her, because in Mel’s defense, he never did get that blow job.
She’s just weeks away from giving birth to her fourth child in five years, and it was Heidi Klum’s bump that took centre stage at the Emmys last night as the supermodel hit the red carpet in a stunning black dress.The 36-year-old, who wore her hair tied back in an elegant bun, was glowing as she posed for photographers outside the Nokia Theatre alongside singer husband Seal.
She later told reporters that there was a major benefit to being pregnant at the event, she didn’t have to worry about sucking her tummy in.‘The great thing about being pregnant and going to these things is that I don’t have to suck my stomach in,’ she said. ‘It’s fabulous! I can let it all out.’Klum was wearing a Marchesa gown designed by Georgina Chapman, but said she hadn’t put much thought into her attire.
‘It wasn’t really hard for me, but it was hard for the woman that designed a dress for me,” she told People.com.‘She started about two or three months ago and that’s kind of difficult…It’s black because I figure, at eight-and-a-half months, black is better! I think it’s elegant and it’s slimming.’
“I would daydream about it all the time,” the star of Weeds told People magazine at a benefit for Worldwide Orphans Foundation in Beverly Hills. “I thought about the fact that there were children who didn’t have anything, and I felt like I could help. It was something that weighed on me.”
Parker made her dream a reality in August of 2007, when she adopted daughter Caroline (“Ash”) Aberash from Africa. Ash joined her son William Atticus in completing her family.
“It was something I did for the world and for my son and then for me,” Parker said of the adoption. “And when I say the world, I also mean my daughter. Once I knew her, she became part of that. But it’s hard raising two kids as a single person. It’s a lot of pressure.”
