Everything's Gonna Be Alright

Quick! Someone alert Kevin Federline's attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan!! Britney Spears has been spotted driving a motorized vehicle with her children, again, after the judge in her on-going custody case has forbidden this action:

Honestly, I wouldn't be all that surprised if K-Fed's lawyer did try to use this sort of thing against our dear Britney the next time she gets hauled back into court. Despite all Britney's crazy bullshizz, it's pictures like this that make it seem within the realm of possibility that she is capable of being a good mother. At the very least, it's proof positive that she knows how to play with her kids and that's something, right? Benefit of the doubt people, she deserves it every once-in-a-while, no? [Source]


I am hap-hap-happy to report that all is well in Heroes land once and for all and all fear that the show will start sucking again have been completely done away with. For the third week in a row, last night's ep of Heroes was not only chock full of exciting action scenes where stuff was actually happening ... but it also came with huge plot developments that advanced the over arcing story. Despite the HUGE lack of Milo Ventimiglianess, I was quite pleased with the way last night's ep turned out:

See, here's the thing tho ... I think Elle (played by Kristen Bell) is starting to bug me. I generally like bad, evil girls but there is something about Elle's demeanor that is really starting to irritate me. I get that she's supposed to come across as a naughty yet deadly psychopath in young girl form but she's kinda coming across to me like a nuisance. I do like how she is being portrayed as the anti-Claire ... the way that Claire might've turned out had her father Noah Bennett not kept her out of the clutches of The Company. You just know a showdown between those two is on the horizon. Claire's flying boyfriend (who I had never connected with Claire's real father Nathan Peterelli before ... I guess girls do fall for guys just like their fathers) scored some major cool points last night helping Mr. Bennett kidnap Elle. Finally, he did something cool to distract from his very unattractive face mole. I found it interesting that Hiro is able to speak and come into direct contact with his past and future self without causing an end to the time/space continuum ... crap like that does not fly on shows like Star Trek but I guess it's not a prob in the Heroes universe. I kinda had a suspicion that Adam was the assassin and now that Hiro knows it's him it's gonna be game on. We know that Hiro becomes a hardened man in the future, maybe this is where all of that begins. I totally fell for the whole death of Noah Bennett thing. The painting showed that he would take a bullet in the eye but it never occurred to me that he could be brought back to life with Claire's blood ... or Adam's? I was ready to Peace the Spork him out and then he had to go and regrow his eye and come back to life. That final scene was this season's version of the ep last season where Claire had her chest ripped open and then she woke up and healed herself (they both got cut off when they exclaimed Holy Shi--!). With only 2 eps left until the end of the season(? due to the Writer's Strike) I am very anxious to see how all of this stuff will get wrapped up. I am so happy that, once again, Heroes is the best show on TV. [Source]


Last night's ep of The Hills was pretty good I guess ... there was a lot of hyped anticipation that didn't really pan out in an entirely satisfactory manner but over all, I guess I can't really complain. We all know what The Hills is good for ... childish high school drama that is orchestrated and filmed in a glossy, well lit environment purely for entertainment purposes while attempting to come across as "reality" TV. Yeah, that's pretty much what we got last night:

First off, let's get the Whitney stuff out of the way ... finally, she gets some attention of her own on the show outside of having anything to do with LC or Audrina. Unfortch, she got saddled with a pretty boring guy who is only kinda cute ... if you squint in a dimly lit room. At least she gave it a shot and went on the date ... but I think she finally learned that her role in life is to play second fiddle to LC in her cast of underlings. The main focus of the show was centered on the rollercoaster romance between Heidi and Spencer. I was shocked that Spencer didn't go into flames or turn into a bat as soon as he stepped foot in that church. Honestly. We were led to believe that the couple was on the verge of breaking up over the planning of their wedding ... and they really acted their parts. I'm sorry, but the scene where Spencer was telling Heidi about eloping to Las Vegas looked so damn staged ... I mean, the show doesn’t ever really look real but this scene was just bad. It would've been great if Heidi had really giving Spence back his cheap-ass engagement ring but no part of any of that felt genuine in the least. The whole storyline just felt so desperate ... like they cooked up that little scenario so that they could stay relevant on the show. Sad. You absolutely know these two will stay together until death they part because no one else on Earth would ever take either one of them. Fake wedding or not ... they're gonna be together forever. Oh and I really hate how they are trying to force the new Elodie replacement down our throats ... she sucks and we don't need her. Stop wasting so much screen time on her. Thanks. And I am SOOO excited for next week's ep ... Spencer's sister comes to town and the world will come to an end. I can't even imagine what a She-Spencer is like ... and actually, I'm kinda scared.

Guy Ritchie brought his eldest kids Lourdes and Rocco out for the UK premiere of the new holiday comedy Fred Claus ... and finally, Vince Vaughn, who stars in the movie with Paul Giamatti, wasn't the hairiest person on the red carpet. Here are a few frightening photos from last night's event:

Trust me, I'm trying to be nice here. I wonder what is up with poor little Lourdes? One would imagine that her mother Madonna, of all people, would understand the importance of one's image and yet, the dear little girl was rockin' more facial hair than her father. Thankfully Vince's gross nose hairs managed to distract and steal away attention from the fuzzy little girl. In the end, I suppose Madge is trying to instill the lesson that one should be happy with themselves just the way they are but I don't see how a couple passes with the tweezers could do much harm.

Heroes stars Milo Ventimiglia and Noah Gray-Cabey were joined by Jason Bateman, Deidre Hall and others for a Los Angeles Free Clinic event in Hollywood last night ... here are a few pics from the red carpet:

I kinda just wanted to post a bunch of hot pics of Milo but then I saw that Deidre Hall was in the hiz and I just got done rewatching a few hours of her stint on Days of Our Lives back when she was possessed by the Devil in the mid 90's (which Soapnet reaired over Halloween weekend) and well ... here you have it -- celebs at the Free Clinic. Even in an environment like this, Milo still looks smokin' hot. [Source]

Lance Bass was on hand in NYC for the official unveiling of the Xmas window displays at Bloomingdale's department store as Xmas events begin to pick up steam all over the country:

It's funny, I remember when Xmas used to come after Thanksgiving and these days it seems to come earlier and earlier. At this rate, Xmas events will start taking place even before the Halloween ones take place. Despite the hasty nature of the event, these window displays are really very cool to see in person. Shopping in NYC on 5th Avenue is really heightened by these elaborate displays. Um, yeah ... is any of this making this stuff sound cool? [Source]

Well ... let's move on ... elsewhere in NYC yesterday, Patrick Dempsey and Amy Adams, the stars of the new Disney half-live/half-animated movie Enchanted, did some promo work for their new movie on MTV's TRL by playing around with a nekkid, non-anatomically correct action figure of Patrick Dempsey. Anything to sell a few more movie tickets, I suppose. Here are a few pics:

If Patrick really wanted to incite folks to rush out and buy tickets for this movie, he should've dropped his pants and showed us what that doll-version of him is missing. Oh, who am I kidding ... David and I have already discussed who we both can't wait to see this movie. Yes, we're a couple of big 'mos and we don't mind. [Source]

Zac Efron decided to join his High School Musical cast mates at the DVD release party for their latest offering, High School Musical 2. Here are pics of Zac with his supposed girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale and Monique Coleman at last night's grand affair:

The suits at Disney must've leaned heavy on Zac since he tends to skip out on doing any promo for these HSM movies. At least he was able to show off his sassy new winter coat on the red carpet ... the ladies always seem so happy just to be included at any of these events. It's gonna be a sad day for the HSM gang (sans Zac) when they stop making sequels and they are forced to start signing up for future seasons of The Surreal Life/Dancing with the Stars/Celebrity Apprentice.

Hilary Duff was in attendance at last night's NY hockey showdown between the NY Islanders and the NY Rangers to watch her boyfriend Mike Comrie, who plays for the Islanders, kick some butt on the ice ... here are a few pics:

I'm fairly certain Mike Comrie was doing his best to impress his lady which, I'm sure, helped the Islanders defeat the Rangers with a score of 2-1. Yeah, it's not so much that Mike actually did anything to help with the win (ie. he didn't score a single goal) but he did look pretty tough every time he slammed some dude up against the glass right in front of Hilary's seat. Ahhhh ... young love. [Source]

Elsewhere, another Hollywood "It" Girl was out and about with a gentlemen friend of hers ... in this case, a new gentleman friend ... here are pics of Hayden Panettiere out for a night on the town with crooner Ne-Yo after the pair spent a night hanging out together:

Ohhhh really now? Are we witnessing the birth of a new love connection here? Was Hayden just interesting in hanging out with a new friend since her rumored paramour Milo Ventimiglia was left back in LA or is there something more substantive going on here? Could this be the end of Halo and the beginning of Ha-yo? [Source]

Shia LeBeouf, freshly sprung from a Chicago jailhouse, was spotted back to work on the set of his new movie Eagle Eye which is currently filming in here in LA ... here are a couple of pics:

The boy just looks like he's itching for the end of the day when he can terrorize the 24-hour pharmacy of his choice. I really hope he gets back to taking his career seriously ... Walgreen's is no place for a young, promising Hollywood upstart ... that's what rehab is for. [Source]

Michael Lohan showed up for duty to lend at hand and serve meals at the ninth annual New York City Rescue Mission Thanksgiving Week event at an NYC rescue mission yesterday afternoon ... and he made sure as many members of the media were in attendance to catch him in all his glory:

Blah. Honestly, any philathropy on the part of Michael Lohan just reeks of gratuitous, self aggrandizing malarkey. In the end, he did provide a helpful service for the folks in need at the mission but I'm just always grossed out by his media whoring. It'd be nice if he actually did participate in charitable events without having to pose for the cameras. Then, at least, his actions would have a whiff of actual charity. [Source]

Julia Roberts used her appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show to promote her new movie Charlie Wilson's War and also used the opportunity to show the world the first public picture of her new son Henry that she birthed with her hubby Danny Moder:

I love how Oprah has the clout to get celebs to do her bidding just so they can appear on her show. I'm surprised Oprah didn't have Julia bring her baby out and make him dance around like a little monkey just for her entertainment. Oprah is a benevolent ruler ... all hail Oprah! [Source]

Debra Messing ... wore a ... uh ... I don't even know what to call this thing that she wore ... in public:

I really have no words. She's lucky that we don't stone people to death for crimes of this nature. [Source]

OY ... and finally, if you thought what Debra Messing wore was bad, wait ‘til you get a peek at what Naomi Campbell was spotted wearing in public this week:

At least in Naomi's defense, I think she was headed for a costume party of some sort ... there is no excuse for the fugness that Debra opted to wear. Oh, what the hell, I say bring on the stones! [Source]

Les News:
Yesterday, David and I spent a nice day on the town just doing whatever ... being lazy, hanging out. We decided to stay in for a quiet night of reading and watching TV. It was such a great nice and normal night. I'm very much looking forward to many more nights like this together in the coming week.

So yeah ... that's about it. I'm out.
