Be My Baby Tonight

Woot! Now, I wouldn't label myself a wrestling fan ... er, not anymore. I haven't even entertained the idea of watching wrestling since I was about 8 years old and wresters like Hulk Hogan, Jimmy Superfly Snuka, Junkyard Dog, Rowdy Roddy Piper, etc. ruled the, then WWF. Well ... okay, I had a minor fascination with wrestling a couple of years ago when the, now, WWE had a reality show called Tough Enough on MTV where they were trying to find the next superstar wrestlers (hey, I'm a reality TV fan ... so sue me). Anyways ... I haven't even thought about wrestling in ages but I was very intrigued by the notion of Kevin Federline making a guest appearance on WWE's RAW because I was kinda hoping that K-Fed would get his ass beat ... and it looks like I got my wish. Here are some screencaps from last night's show:

LOL! Of course whole thing was staged, hell, it even looked staged (would K-Fed really come out trash-talking like that in real life?) but it was funny as hell to watch. Thanks to all the WWE fans out there who have me the head's up to watch last night. If you missed the show last night, or just want to watch The Federline get tossed around like a little girl then you can watch video from the show HERE or HERE on YouTube. [Source]

Incidentally, Pink reader Ant was at the actual show taping on Sunday night and sends in these pictures from the event:

Ant writes: Last night I took my son to the WWE show at Staples Center and it turned out Kevin Federline of all people showed up. He did a bit where he egged the crowd on in hating him and then the WWE champ, John Cena, ended up freestyling about him after KFed asked the crowd if we wanted to hear his first single...then said, go buy the album October 31st. Then Cena told him "You don't have the balls to hit me, if Kevin wasn't here I'd be spearing Britney". In the end Kevin got beat up and the crowd ate it up. Everybody hated him. It'll be on Monday night on channel usa. Steve-O and Chris Pontius from jackass and Aaron Carter/Nick Carter were there also and were involved in other bits. I gotta admit ... I'm a little jealous I wasn't able to watch this shizz go down live. I guess that's what I get for not paying enough attention to the world of wrestling. [thanks Ant]

Madonna's new little bundle of joy has been brought out of Africa and has been flown to her waiting arms in London ... here are a few photos of Madonna's personal assistant transporting her new little baby boy David:

Madonna's personal assistant did her best to keep little Daniel hidden from sight ... [Source]

... but we are lucky enough to get a little peek at how cute he is! David is just mere moments away from becoming Madonna's third child:

David Banda arrived at London's Heathrow airport at about 6:20 a.m. aboard a British Airways 747 from Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg. With him were one of Madonna's bodyguards and a female aide, described by the BBC as the singer's personal assistant, who upon arrival shielded the baby from photographers with a coat. Inside Heathrow, three armed police officers, along with airline and airport officials, escorted the party to the baggage-claim area, an observer tells PEOPLE. Some 10 minutes later, the group was led out through a back door, where they boarded a silver Mercedes SUV and drove away. The baby's name is David Banda but is he now going to be known as Daniel Ciccone Ritchie? Well, if the opponents of this adoption have their way the adoption won't go thru at all: Madonna could face a criminal investigation in Britain over the African boy she wants to adopt ... Children's charities in the southern African country objected to the speed at which the multi-millionaire star got the child. But it is the strict laws on assessing prospective adoptive parents in this country that could provide the biggest obstacle in her attempt to officially adopt him. The police could be called in ... Any breach could open up Madonna to criminal proceedings with a maximum jail sentence of a year or a large fine. The Adoption and Children Act 2002 makes it clear parents must be deemed fit to adopt before a child can come to the UK. Um, I think it's pretty safe to assume that everything will turn out fine for mother and adopted child. I can't wait to see the first photos of the full Ritchie family. [Source, Source]

Ryan Phillippe and wife Reese Witherspoon were all smiles at the latest premiere for Ryan's new movie Flags of our Father in NYC ... here are a few photos of the overly ecstatic couple:

Actually, Ryan looks hotter when he's brooding. But, you know, you'd think they'd want to look happier at an event like this. [Source]

But looking happy was not a problem for either Lance Armstrong or Robert Downey, Jr. at the National Arts Awards in NYC last night ... mainly because they got to spend some time hanging out with Jake Gyllenhaal:

I think that Matthew McConaughey was not invited to this event because, well, he'd have to wear a shirt ... and prolly bathe. No worries tho -- Robert Downey, Jr. looked happy enough to fill in as Jake's other date. That Jake, he just can't be seen on the red carpet with just one dude. [Source, Source]

In other Gyllenhaal news, here is the first photo of Maggie Gyllenhaal (with her babydaddy Peter Sarsgaard) since giving birth to her first child Ramona:

I'm not exactly sure why Peter looks like a panhandler but Maggie looks great for having just given birth to her baby girl. I'm actually surprised that she has emerged so quickly after the birth ... I thought for sure she'd go underground and stay hidden for some time. We've yet to see pictures of the new baby so hopefully we'll get to see those soon ... maybe pics of Ramona and uncle Jake? [Source]

Katie Holmes is back in black (because I don't think she's allowed to wear anything else, actually) and it looks like she's ready to hop into the back of a hearse (even tho I know it's an SUV but I'm only making a joke). It also looks like Katie's got some mad love for the mom pants:

UGH ... those pants do nothing for her booty ... they only make her look like a 42-year old housewife. Ohh, I get it ... they were a gift from Tom Cruise. [Source]

Dustin Hoffman is trying to get attention from the paparazzi by pretending that he doesn't want attention from the paparazzi ...

... see how that works? It'd be easier if he just had a nip slip ... oh wait ... never mind ... the bag over the head works just fine. [Source]

Dita von Teese was the main attraction last night in London at the KOKO club's burlesque night ... here are a few photos from her sexy performance:

I don't know why but I'm utterly fascinated by Dita's performances. They're so sexy and interesting and not at all vulgar or gross. Click HERE to browse thru the gallery to see more pictures from her semi-NSFW performance. [Source]

TMZ has obtained a copy of the birth certificate of Dannielynn Hope Marshall, newborn daughter of Anna Nicole Smith, and right away I'm struck by a shocking error on the document:

No, it's not that Howard K. Stern (Anna's creepy-leechy lawyer) is listed as the baby's father (even tho the paternity of the child still has yet to be proven by DNA testing) ... the shocking thing is that Anna Nicole's occupation is listed as "Actress". On what planet is Anna Nicole Smith an actress? Does her miniscule role in Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult really count as acting? Boo! [Source]

Rachel Bilson and Victoria Beckham both have graced the cover of You magazine in recent weeks ... obviously, I think that Rachel wins hands down ... but who do you think looks better on the cover?

For me, flesh and blood wins out over silicone and collagen ... what do you think? [Source, Source]


Woot! Heroes is getting so good ... even if the plotline is starting to get a little convoluted. The thing at the end of the episode with Hiro coming back to his past (our present) from the distant future to deliver a warning to Peter is gonna make things really interesting ... and confusing -- tho it should clue us in that New York doesn't get destroyed by the foreshadowed nuclear blast ... unless Hiro came from the future before the blast is to take place -- OY! See what I mean? Confusing!

The preview for next week's episode said a clue to the Heroes survival and success was "Save the cheerleader, Save the world". The first thing I thought was that little Hayden Panettiere has got herself some job security right there! I'm totally getting wrapped up in this show ... I might have to start doing recaps for this show too! [Source]

And finally, Pink reader Julie gave me the head's up that Reichen Lemkuhl guest starred on yesterday's episode of Days of our Lives. Since she saw it on the East Coast I was able to record it on the West Coast. I'm not sure what I was expecting but I think I was expecting his role to have more than 2 seconds of screen time ... alas, it wasn't to be ... here are a few screencaps from his appearance:

Seriously ... he was on the screen for about 2 seconds (barely enough time to snap screencaps) and he didn't even have a single line. Someone asked him for a drink and he nodded ... that was it. Hee hee ... you'd think his boyfriend Lance Bass could get him better gigs than that. [thanks Julie]

Les News:
I absolutely love having David here with me in LA ... we spent a very leisurely day at my apartment all day long yesterday. Last night we met up with Jim for dinner. David found an amazing Thai place called Rambutan Thai. It had to be the best Thai food I've ever had. We each got something different and ended up sharing with one another. Also dining at Rambutan was Zachary Quinto -- he played Tori Spelling's gay BFF on her show So noTORIous.

That was pretty much our night ... simple and fun ... just the way I like it.

That is all ... I'm out.
