X Factor

David and I made it to NYC last night and awoke today to dreary, cold and rainy weather. At the very least it's not snowing so I guess there can't be too much complaining. But, as always, there is goss to be had ... let's get to it ...

Here are a few ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE pictures of David Beckham, who was in Beijing, China over the weekend, getting assaulted with kisses from little girls at his appearance Saturday night on a Chinese show called Happy Camp which will be aired in December:

Rather than be insanely jealous of these precious little darlings, I'll just focus on the fact that these pics are, like, the cutest ever. [Source]

Becks didn't stay long in China as he has already made his way down to Sydney, Australia where he posed for pics in Sydney Harbor (with the famed Sydney Opera House in the background) and then participated in a press conference held for his soccer team, the LA Galaxy, Sunday afternoon:

Becks and the LA Galaxy are in Oz to play a soccer match against the Sydney FC (football club), which was the focus of the press conference Sunday afternoon. [Source]

After all the talkin' was finished, Becks and the boys took to the field at Telstra Stadium and got down to biz, training for their big friendly match:

Woot! Becks was really makin' sure to stretch out all of his muscles in order to make sure that his lithe bod is primed and ready for action against those brawny Aussies. Yeah, thinkin' about hawt soccer players runnin' around under the hot sun, sweatin' thru their clothes and pilin' all up on one another really warms the cold cockles of my heart :) The Galaxy takes on Sydney FC tonight ... Gooooo Becks!!! [Source, Source]

Kylie Minogue played a special performance in Lyon, France yesterday ahead of the official release of her new album X which hit stores outside of the US today. Here are a couple pics of Kylie lookin' amazing on stage in France yesterday:

These photos of a rejuvenated Kylie are a far cry from the toll that performing took on her fragile body when she rushed back on tour to do her Showgirl Homecoming Tour after completing her cancer treatment therapy last year. Kylie's Showgirl Homecoming Tour and her struggles behind the scenes are the focus of a new documentary called White Diamond which aired on Channel 4 in the UK last night and is scheduled for DVD release in a couple of weeks. I am sooo excited for all this new Kylie material. Fans of Kylie here in the US are horribly deprived from all this new material and we have to hope that these sorts of programs make their way to Canada so that we can get them as well. [Source]

And speaking of new material, Kylie's 10th album X has finally been released today and to celebrate, Kylie made a cd signing appearance at the Virgin Megastore in Paris, France at the stroke of midnight for the lucky fans there ... here are a few pics:

Lucky fans in other parts of the world have been streaming into record shops all day today to pick up Kylie's new album ... but fans in the US can take heart. Altho we are not allowed to purchase music from UK iTunes, we are able to purchase high quality MP3s from You can buy X online right now by clicking HERE ... cuz, if you're anything like me, you'll want the MP3s to tide you over until the import albums are delivered from overseas. Happy Kylie Day!! [Source]

Elsewhere in France and for some strange reason, Lauren LC Conrad and her #3 wingperson Whitney Port (from the addictive MTV show The Hills) were invited to attend the prestigious French event Le Bal des Debutantes in Paris, France, which clearly had both girls utterly confused and confounded:

The invite-only event is meant to cull together the world's most eligible single women so that they can be presented and then married off accordingly. Yeah, I don't think that these ladies really read the fine print on the brochure they were given for this event. My only hope is that they didn't bring along their MTV cameras to further embarrass our country by horning in on this time-honored French tradition just so that it can be used on an upcoming episode of Les Hills.

Amy Winehouse continues her destructive path into the abyss of eventual ruination as she pines away for her incarcerated husband Blake Civil Fielder who faces charges that he tried to pervert justice in the UK ...

... orrrr, it's just another Monday for Miss Winehouse. Actually, the only reason I wanted to post these pics of Amy was because she looked so much like the chick from Attack of the 50ft. Woman that I just had to do a Beyotch Stole My Look! pic. Yeah, that's all. [Source]

Lindsay Lohan and her new beau Riley Giles have made their way back from their heart-warming family Thanksgiving weekend in New York and have already relocated to the sunny shores of Los Angeles. Here are a few pics of RiLo as they made their way thru the airport over the weekend:

Lindsay Lohan has faith in herself and I think we should have faith in her as well. Well, actually, Lindsay has faith on her hat but same diff. I'm just so impressed that she continues to keep her nose out of trubs (that we know of) but I can't help but feel like it's only a matter of time. I really hope that she can stay clean ... wouldn't it be great if L. Lo started a new trend amongst the Hollywood "It" Girls to live their lives with poise and class? Dare to dream, ya'll. [Source]

In more happy family news, Heidi Klum and hubby Seal gathered together their little scamps and paid a visit to Santa Claus who is currently stationed at The Grove in Los Angeles, CA (in addition to every other mall, shopping center and some street corners the world over). Here is a cute pic of the happy family:

Their eldest son Henry isn't pictured in this photo but he was there running around with the rest of them. You know, as much as they seem like the perfect family there has to be something wrong with at least one of them ... no one can be that squeaky clean. I wonder what little Johan is hiding. [Source]

Now, I don't usually pay much attention to Canadian crooner Michael Bublé but once I saw these disturbing pics of a nekkid Bublé in bed taken by his mistress Tiffany Bromley, who inists that he has been cheating on his current girlfriend Emily Blunt with her for the past couple of months, I felt that I simply had to share ... cuz misery really does love company:

The thought of Bublé having any sort of sexual relations with anyone leaves a really bad taste in my mouth ... so I shant dwell on it any further. If you are at all interested in seeing the uncensored pics of Bublé in bed you can see them HERE and may the gods have mercy on your soul. [Source]

John Rambo is 60 years old but that doesn't mean that he's too old to kick ass ... which is why they have decided to make a new Rambo movie ... because, really, isn't the world ready for more Rambo?

Ageing actor Sylvester Stallone has resurrected one of his most famous film characters - John Rambo - for one last mission. A sneak peek of the upcoming movie shows the 60-year-old actor, who filmed parts of the movie in Thailand earlier this year, wrangling huge machine guns and leaving a sea of enemies in his wake. While he still sports an impressive set of biceps, the actor did use a spritely 30-year-old body double to do the stunts the sexagenarian found too challenging. Stallone is bringing back the legendary action hero in a new film about troubled Vietnam war veteran and guerrilla warfare expert. Stallone last appeared in the 1988 film Rambo 3, almost 20 years ago and the new film is due for release next year. In the latest installment, Rambo finds himself recruited by a group of Christian human rights missionaries to protect them against pirates, during a humanitarian aid delivery to the persecuted Karen people of Burma. After some of the missionaries are taken prisoner by sadistic Burmese soldiers, Rambo gets a second impossible job: to assemble a team of mercenaries to rescue the surviving relief workers. The star, whose return as Rocky last year was a critical and financial success, is doing double-duty on the project as both director and star. Um, LOL. I think I may pass on this light-hearted affair. The thought of going out to see Grumpy Old Men set in the jungles of Thailand just doesn't sound all that appealing. [Source]

Empire magazine has begun unveiling portions of a larger photo along with the headline He Is Coming ...

By the looks of the socks, it is believed that the photo will reveal The Joker from the new movie The Dark Knight. All of the cards will be flipped and the full photo will be completely revealed in 3 days ... click HERE if you can't wait and you want to watch the progress yourself. [Source]

The beauteous Alyson Hannigan is featured in the latest issue of Page Six Magazine ... here are her pics:

She looks great! I think there isn't enough Aly in the world ... I hope she gets featured in more publications soon. [Source]


And finally, last night David and I finally got to watch last week's episode of Project Runway (since we were traveling Wednesday night and David's parents don't get Bravo [the horror, I know!]) and since it was such a great ep, I just had to whip up a recap even tho it's a few days late:

I was more impressed with the challenge this time around ... not only did the designers have to create 2 articles of clothing for a fashion icon (in this case, Sarah Jessica Parker) but they had to do so with only $15 bucks. I had my doubts that Elisa would be able to make anything elegant enough to ever be in contention for winning (especially since the crazy beyotch likes to spit on her garments while she makes them) but she and Sweet P really worked well together, creating my fave garment of the bunch. It really should've won ... that cape was really cool and the dress was very chic. It looked much more expensive than the $40 retail price. I really could've done without all the queeny crying ... I really thought that Chris was going to be the worst cryer but Ricky pretty much bawls at the drop of a hat. It's getting old really fast ... as is Christian's whole demeanor. Last week I wasn't sure if I liked him or not ... I think I've decided that I'm starting not to. He is talented but his attitude sucks and may prove to be his downfall if he doesn't shape up quick. I almost DIED when Michael Kors made the Facts of Life comment because he is soooo right! I love this show so much! [Source]

If you are interested in purchasing the winning design from SJP's Bitten clothing line you can do so HERE:

Both Project Runway and SJP are brilliant ... this cross-over is pure genius. I can't wait to see what they come up with this week. [Source]

Les News:
Sooo ... last night David's sister Lara drove him, his sister Eden and me into Hartford, CT so that we could catch a train into the city. I'm not a big train person but last night's trip wasn't so bad. The train was pretty packed but we managed to get a whole row to ourselves and eked out ample space for all of our luggage. I felt like such a New Englander. I also got to meet Pink reader Josh in Hartford before we all boarded the train for NYC:

I also have to give a shout-out to Josh's sister Andi ... xoxoxo!

So yeah, it's cold and rainy here but I ain't complainin' all that much ... I'm glad that David and I are getting to spend more time together. We're meeting up with Monique tonight so there are fun times to be had. I hope y'all are having a great Monday ... I am out.
