... it's not that hard ... it'll just take a little yard sale (to get rid of those horrible clothes), a little concealer (to, you know, conceal) and a little hair brush (to smooth out those rough edges). You can do it, Brit ... I believe in you! [Source]
Well ... another celebrity couple bites the dust ... sadly, it is time to Peace the Spork Out the celebrity pairing of Sheryl Crow and Lance Armstrong:
From People magazine: "After much thought and consideration we have made a very tough decision to split up. We both have a deep love and respect for each other and we ask that everyone respect our privacy during this very difficult time," the statement said ... Rumors of trouble began surfacing around Christmas, but the couple insisted there was no truth to them and that they were moving forward with wedding plans for this spring. Sheryl just spoke to Allure magazine about trying on wedding gowns, specifically a Vera Wang dress that was "a particularly absurd amount of meringue". Looks like she's gonna be meringue-free for the foreseeable future. Pity. [Source]
Fashion Week has begun in earnest in New York City and Lindsay Lohan was right smack dab in the middle of all of the opening ceremony-hoopla. She even hooked up with the likes of Fergie, LeAnn Rimes and Deborah Harry at a Olympus Fashion Week launch event:
Note that she brought along her 2 favorite fashion accessories ... her peace sign and a J necklace. HMMMMMM ... I wonder what the J stands for! HMMMMM! Well, it's gonna be a crazy week in NYC ... and it's only just begun. [Source, Source]

Katie Holmes appears to be pummeling her alleged fetus with massive amounts of caffeinated products these days ... here is the soon-to-be Mrs. Cruise (or so they'd have us believe) double-fisting a couple of beverages from Peet's Coffee & Tea:
It's okay tho ... fake fetuses feel no pain. [Source]
Whoa ... I wonder what got David Beckham so pissed off that he felt he needed to attack a paparazzo?
Dude, the secret's out ... Victoria Beckham is an alien android from planet XENOX. It's cool ... we're cool with it. [Source]
Dave Chappelle finally broke his silence about his behavior surrounding his $50 million dollar contract with Comedy Central to Oprah Winfrey on her show yesterday:
On Friday (February 3), he appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and said he still wants to do his show. "I don't want the money, I don't want the drama. I just want to do my show again." Chappelle said he left the show, months after signing a $50 million deal for its third and fourth seasons, because he felt manipulated by the people around him. "I felt in a lot of instances I was deliberately being put through stress because when you're a guy who generates money, people have a vested interest in controlling you," he said. I can't imagine the pressures that come along with a $50 million dollar contract ... I think I can understand why he needed to just get the hell out of town to clear his head, especially when things get overwhelming. Sounds like he's in a pretty good place ... we'll see if he can regain the momentum that he lost because of his actions. [Source]

Detroit isn't usually teeming with people ... so it was a strange sight ... but a very welcome one. Everywhere you looked there were throngs of people having a great time. It was awesome! We gawked for a little while before heading into the 10 Party ... hosted by Fergie from BEP:
Sarah and I really had a great time ... it was very strange seeing celebrities partying in Detroit. Tommy Lee tried to go incognito but he didn't really do a great job of hiding out ... we also spyed Josh Lucas who spent quite a lot of time with a blonde chick. I kid you not ... Dylan McDermott kept giving Sarah and me the eye all night long ... we kept catching him staring at us ... I wonder what was up with that? Sarah gave me express instructions to let you know she wasn't the girl with the plastic cup stuck on her heel ... and for some reason, we found that girl insanely hilarious. OH and get this, some random guy came up to Sarah and me and offered us $50 just to stand where we were standing (which wasn't that great a place at all, we were merely standing at some spot on the balcony in VIP). It was crazy! We stayed for the duration of the party ... when we saw that Fergie was ready to bounce we decided to call it a night.
We had a complete blast ... I have send out lots of love to Rachel and everyone at Lizzie Grubman PR. Thank you so much for bringing your hot party to Detroit and letting me be a party of it ... Detroit loved having you!
One last thing, REMEMBER to catch Prince on SNL tonight ... DON'T FORGET Y'ALL!
I'm still a little beat from last night ... I need to rest up for the Playboy party tonight ... Woot!
I'm out! Lates!
