Mariah Is The New King Of Rock & Roll

Spederline made an appearance this week ... they showed up at a Toys 'R Us in Culver City, CA to pick up a few things for the holidays:


It looks like Sean Preston is gonna get a whole lotta crap he don't need this Xmas ... I wonder if Kori and Kaleb Jackson-Federline will get cheated out of presents this year. Sure, Spederline have lots of cash to throw around but they now have a child of their very own. I'm not saying Britney Spears is selfish ... well ... okay, I bet Britney Spears is kinda selfish so I wouldn't be surprised if K-Fed's other kids only get Chia Pets this Xmas. [Source, Source]

ATTENTION: PROJECT RUNWAY SPOILER ALERT WARNING

So ... I cannot tell you how excited my friends and I get while we are watching Project Runway. We actually brace ourselves when it's time to find out who is in and who is out ... last night's episode was great. Personally, I did not think that Team Daniel's designs were good enough to win after seeing them on the runway but I did think the idea was a good one:


These final products were so boring ... Sarah and I liked Team Diana's designs much better. They were interesting and different -- we thought for sure they were gonna win. [Source]

There is no question that Team Santino's designs were atrocious ... seriously, the ugliest lingerie I've ever seen. The models looked like freaky elves and none of them looked sexy at all:


Santino is so annoying ... but there is no way they are gonna kick him off the show ... he's talented enough to make it to the end and he's bitchy enough to make the episodes interesting. As much as I'd love to see him get the boot there is no way he's going anywhere ... at least for a long time. That said, I was kinda glad that Daniel Franco got axed again. Every single time it's the same thing with him ... I knew he was bound to run out of luck eventually. At least he made it further this season ... [Source]

One last thing ... I realized last night that Santino reminded me of someone else ... isn't he the spitting image of General Zod (played by Terence Stamp) from Superman II?


They're the perfect twins ... right down to the little ponytail. LOL!

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Mariah Carey has secured her 17th #1 song this week (the last week of 2005) with Don't Forget About Us:


With this latest #1 song she ties Elvis Presley's record for the most #1s by a solo artist. She is now only 3 #1s away from matching The Beatles' all-time record of 20 #1 songs by anyone. In other Mariah chart news, her song All I Want For Christmas Is You is the #1 song on Billboard's Hot Digital Songs chart and is the first time a song that isn't a current hit ranks #1 on that chart. And just as a random note, the #1 song back in 1984 this week was Like A Virgin by Madonna. [Source]

Whew ... while all of this chart-topping business is going on, Mimi finds herself in Aspen, CO on holiday:


Er ... I'm not sure if it's the massive boobs or the enormous (and fugly) boots, or a combination of the two, that is making Mariah look ... big. I love Mimi but ... should she be wearing a belly shirt in Aspen, CO? Should she be wearing a belly shirt anywhere? [Source]

Victoria Beckham was on hand for Elton John's wedding yesterday and decided to show up in this saucy little number:


There are so many things wrong with this monstrosity ... let's just hope that Sir Elton just slapped the shizz out of her and called it a day. [Source]

Paris Hilton and Stavros Niarchos have jetted away to Hawaii for the holiday season ... and look, Mr. Nachos got himself a haircut:


I have to admit that he looks 10 MILLION TIMES better than he used to with that horribly stringy hair job he had before. It looks like Parisopolis is doing well ... and it looks really warm there in Hawaii -- it's 20°F here in Detroit. [Source]

Jessica Simpson is still down in the dumps ... so much so that shopping doesn't seem to chase the blues away:


The poor dear ... [Source]

Here is a picture of Jess trying to hide behind a Loretta Lynn CD ...


... at least I think it's Jessica Simpson ... it's hard to tell behind that compact disc she's holding ... who knew she was an L. Lynn fan? Well ... Loretta does sings songs of heartache and despair ... I think it makes some sense ... [Source]

Here are pictures of Scarlett Johansson and Josh Hartnett arriving in Rome:


Scarlett is in Italy to promote her new movie Match Point. [Source]

Here are some pictures of the Match Point photocall in Rome:


They sure look like a happily botoxed bunch ... [Source]

... but looks can be deceiving ... it looks like Woody Allen is completely fed up with Scarlett Johansson and her stupid mouth ...


.. yeah, old men get grumpy sometimes. [Source]

Rachel Bilson, much like her very responsible boyfriend Adam Brody, is a very good dog owner ...


... if this trend of celebrity dog owners cleaning up after their pets catches on, expect Louis Vuitton to create a $980 LV bag for dog poopies. It's only a matter of time. [Source]

Brett Ratner, the director of X-Men III, wishes you and yours a very Merry X-Mas:


It is very clear that Brett is a huge dork ... but if you were directing an X-Men movie and you had the ability to get all dressed up for your Xmas cards you know you would do the same thing -- I know I would. Altho, I don't know that I would necessarily dress up like Wolverine's little butt buddy. [Source]

The Hiltons (Kathy, Rick, Paris, Nicky, Barron and Conrad) would also like to wish you and yours a very Happy Holidays:


I'm surprised that the Hiltons decided to go to the Sears Portrait Studio for their Xmas picture. I have to admit, tho, that Sears has really done a wonderful job with their selection of backdrops. [Source]

Pamela Anderson is also in the Xmas spirit ... she paid a little visit to the Tonight Show earlier this week and brought her Xmas cheer ...


... she also brought her hepatitis and a few copies of Playboy magazine to give out as gifts. Don't you just love Xmas?! [Source]

And finally ... Hello! magazine would like you all to meet the newest member of the Stewart family -- Alastair Stewart:


The poor dear cannot help that Kimberly Stewart is his half sister ... let's just wait and see how the little scamp turns out before we throw him to the wolves ... it is Xmas time after all ... [Source]

The News:
Yesterday was a bit chaotic ... I met up with some old friends for breakfast before I set out to run a few errands throughout the day. I had a great dinner with Sarah and her mom, Nina, before Sarah and I went back to her place to hang out. We watched my little bit on E! (we were both a bit horrified by my bad hair ... why didn't anyone tell me), then watched Project Runway and then watched the Being Bobby Brown Xmas special. I'm convinced that Whitney Houston was completely wasted throughout that entire episode. She looked a right mess ... and she sounded a mess too -- God, I love that woman! Bravo needs to make sure that a second season of Bobby & Whitney will come in the new year ... that show is BRILLIANT! Loves it, loves it, loves it!

Kirsten comes home from New York this evening ... she, Erik and I were invited over to Stephanie's house for dinner ... and then a bunch of us are going out to Luna for some 80's dancing.

And I guess that is all ... I am out.
