Just Another Day

It is really great to see Jamie Lynn Spears back on the scene. She really goes thru bouts of being out in public and then hiding out for months at a time ... I'm hoping her recent appearance at the Monster House premiere is a signal that she's going to be showing up at events more often again. Here are new pictures of Jamie Lynn on the set of the third season of her show Zoey 101:

Ahh ... our Jamie Lynn ... so sweet, so innocent ... so prolly gonna fire that girl who is trying to hog the spotlight. Yeah, it would behoove all those other little girls on that show to know their place and stay out of JL's way -- or else! [Source via Source]


Yay! I finally have my digital cable, DVR and a brand new TV all set up and ready to go ... I am all set up to watch, record and rant about my favorite TV shows again! So ... okay ... did y'all watch Project Runway last night? I have to admit, I love this show more and more every time I see it, even tho this crop of designers has yet to win my heart. There are designers that I like (Laura, Alison and Robert) but I'm not in "love" with them like I was last season with Daniel V. and Nick. So far I can't stand Keith and Vincent so I know I can count on them for some good TV. Alrighty ... let's get to it:

I really loved Kayne and Robert's dress ... if Kayne did not win this pageant dress challenge then there was no way he was gonna be able to show his face in public again. They really pulled off the best design and deserved to win. Big up to Kayne for reppin' Norman, OK -- home of my alma mater the University of Oklahoma! I really liked Laura and Michael's dress even if their model looked like she could bench press 800 lbs. Yikes! She is a horrrrible model. I felt really bad for Malan for getting cut but I wasn't very surprised. The poor guy is going thru all of this stuff just to please his mother ... and then he gets booted from the show's second episode. Even tho he was a bit creepy (okay, he was waaaaay creepy) and even tho I kinda hated his cackling laugh I did feel really bad for him. His design was fug so I guess he had to go. Thus far, Angela has proved to be a complete waste of space ... she doesn't sketch and doesn't design ... what the hell does she do? She won't last long. Um ... has Vera Wang always looked that scary? I don't remember her ever looking quite so frightening before ... but she sure scared the hell out of me last night. Nina Garcia was a joy -- I absolutely lurve her! I haven't decided if I like Jeffrey or not ... he's kind of a jerk but I really like his Detroit tattoo on his neck. I also like how he's already nekkid by the second episode. I'm gonna hafta keep my eye on him. [Source]

Jessica Simpson played co-host on MTV's TRL yesterday so that she could debut her new video A Public Affair. There was much speculation over whether or not TRL VJ Vanessa Minnillo (currently dating Jess' ex-hubby Nick Lachey) would be on the show with Jessica ... but, of course, she was not ... here are a few pics of Jess from the show:

Blah ... without Vanessa on the show there really weren't any sparks at all. I feel bad for LaLa -- they only dig her out and put her on TRL for instances like this (or when the regular VJs are sick or on vacay). She must feel so misused. So yeah, the whole reason that Jessica was on the show was to debut her new video ... which I felt was really not as good as it could have been. With a big movie director like Brett Ratner you kinda expect ... more. The Andy Dick schtick is so tired, so incredibly lame -- I can't believe anyone thinks it's a good idea to put him in their videos. Click HERE to see the video for yourself. Do try and stay awake.

Jessica's little sister Ashlee Simpson was also in NYC yesterday but she was in town to do a little promotion for Victoria's Secret. Ash is working with VS for their new Pink line of clothing ... and you just gotta love that. Here are pictures from Ashlee's VS concert yesterday:

She looks pretty dang good. It's been so long since I've seen her live ... I'm happy to see that things are still going well for her. It looks like she's finally got her acid reflux problem under control and the new nose seems to be doing fine. Yay for her! [Source]

Here are new pictures of Jake Gyllenhaal with his new BFF Lance Armstrong in France. Lance is there to support the US riders in the Tour de France and brought along Jakey poo for the ride:

So lemme get this straight, both Jake and Matthew McConaughey are fighting over the affections of Lance Armstrong? WTF? Is Lance, like, the luckiest guy on planet Earth? He gets to ride bikes with both Jake and Matthew and then gets to spend quiet time with each of the individually. What a lucky beyotch. [Source]

Here are new pictures of little Violet Ann Affleck with her mommy Jennifer Garner on the set of daddy Ben Affleck's new movie ... um, when did that little baby grow into this huge little girl?

Wasn't Violet just born about 2 weeks ago? She's so big already. Kids these days ... [Source]

It appears that Nicole Richie ain't satisfied with her pet pooches anymore ... it looks like she has jumped aboard the Celebs with Cats bandwagon that is all the rage this year:

First Mischa, then Paris and now Nicole ... who knew that pussy would be so hot right now? [Source]

Katie Holmes has fled the confines of the Tom Cruise compound in Telluride, CO and is back at home in LA. Here is a picture of Katie as she emerges from her home-away-from-home -- Barney's:

Still no actual Suri Holmes-Cruise sighting (and no, I don't put much stock in the report that Leah Remini claims that she actually laid eyes on Suri -- Leah is a Scientologist and Scientologists take care of their own). I'm just confounded by the fact that Katie Holmes can fly around the country, visit various airports and still NOT be seen with her newborn child. Maybe Suri's inside Katie's new purse? Who the hell knows? [Source]

Colin Farrell is hard at work on his latest movie (he prolly wants to get to work on something that will hopefully make his latest stinker, Miami Vice, a distant memory ... the movie isn't even out yet and all the buzz is really bad). Here are a couple of pictures of Colin on set:

It looks like that female assistant is really getting a good, hard look at his booty. Having seen his bare ass in various movies and videos *cough* sex tape *cough*, I can't say that I blame her. Woo! [Source]

Seriously ... Mary Kate Olsen has severe problems ... the girl is only 20 years old and she always looks like she's at least 75. Here are new pictures of MK at LAX airport:

I'm actually surprised that she can make her way around the huge terminal without the aid of her walker. [Source]

Here are pictures of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen in the new issue of Vogue magazine. When she's all dolled up, MK actually looks her age ... I'm not usually a big fan of the Olsen Twins' photoshoots but I actually kinda like these pictures:

I'm not really sure which Olsen is which (I'm gonna guess that Ashley is in the blonde wig and MK is in the black wig) but I like the look and style of each of them. The poses are a bit weird but I ain't gonna hate ... I like these pics. [Source]

Ashley Olsen is featured, all by herself, in the new issue of Nylon magazine. Here are a few pics from her photoshoot:

This pretty much settles it, Ashley Olsen is my fave Olsen. She is, by far, the more normal of the two and she really looks amazing in these pictures. She looks very Kate Moss in the first pic and kinda Victoria Beckham in the third pic. TEAM ASHLEY! [Source]

Justin Timberlake is on the cover of the new issue of GQ magazine. In his interview, Justin confesses that he was "infatuated" with Britney Spears from the first moment he saw her ... he still has very nice to things to say about her even tho he's totally over her. Here are a few pics from JT's photoshoot:

... [H]e doesn't talk to Britney (and never told her to lose the loser husband), but he does feel badly when he sees what the press is putting her through. "I wish her well, and I want to see her win," he says. "I don't think you can ever count somebody like her out. Because she may appear one way, but she's very clever," he says cryptically. He refuses to gloat over the fact that his career took off like a shot and she ended up crying through her mascara to Matt Lauer. "I mean, at the end of the day, it's like, be a man. You know? Some shit happened, it wasn't good, but be a man," he says. He's such a gentleman ... it's too bad they couldn't make their fairy tale relationship last. If these two were still together ... well, the mind boggles at the possibilities. Anyways, I love the whole military vibe he's got goin' on for this shoot ... he really knows how to fill out a t-shirt. [Source]

Whew! I am happy to report that this is what the cover artwork for Jessica Simpson's new album A Public Affair will look like:

It's clean and simple ... much better than the single cover artwork (which was posted yesterday via I'm actually impressed. [thanks Ryan]

And finally, here are a few grainy preview photos of Pete Wentz' new poster ads for Gap:

He's not giving away the penis anymore so I guess we'll have to make do with the nipple. I fully expect these posters to be stolen from malls all across America. Genius. [Source]

El News:
David and I had an amazing dinner with a few friends at Bridge last night. We met up with my good friend Jeremy, his boyfriend Phillip and his friend Marc and new friend Gillian (the Gillian from and her boyfriend Tim. There was wine, amazing food and lots of great gossy conversation. It was a great night!

After dinner, David and I came home to watch Project Runway and then we hit the sack. I somehow doubt that LA is going to change me very much :)

Not sure what's going on tonight, I hear that Nina Gordon is doing a show in LA somewhere ... I might have to swing by to check her out.

That is all ... I'm out.
