It Ain't Over Yet

For some ungodly reason, the powers that be think that the world is in dire need of a new Britney Spears fragrance to sit on the shelves and collect dust right alongside Curious, Fantasy and Believe. So, just in time for your holiday shopping, the folks at Britney Spears Beauty present to you the latest perfume product that will have you smellin' like Brit Brit in no time ... behold, curious ♥ heart:

You know that this stuff has to be making money, otherwise they wouldn't keep releasing new products. For the life of me, I have no idea who these perfumes are marketed for but they sure do keep comin' out. There is a sweepstakes attached to this latest fragrance, which you can enter HERE which is likely to offer a few fun goodies. You know, I bet promotions like this would work so much better if Britney Spears wasn't so batshizz crazy. [Source]

As the year winds down the break-ups keep on comin'. The latest Hollywood marriage headed for divorce court is that of Sean and Robin Wright-Penn. Word broke yesterday that the couple are totally dunzo:

Sean Penn and wife Robin Wright Penn are divorcing, their rep, Mara Buxbaum, confirms to PEOPLE exclusively. No other details were immediately available. The couple, who've been married 11 years, have two children together, Hopper Jack, 14, and Dylan Frances, 16 ... "Marriage ain't easy, but it's great most of the time," Penn told Entertainment Weekly in 1997. "I love Robin. I've always loved her." In the same article, Cassavetes was asked about working with the couple. "The beginning and the end of every day is how Sean and Robin are getting along," he said. "If they have a bad morning, Sean's broken up about it." Well, he can't be that broken up about it any more. I was convinced that we had seen our last break-up for 2007 and then this news comes out ... of course, I also thought that the DUIs finished as well ... then came Mischa Barton's arrest early yesterday morning.

Additionally, Rebecca De Mornay -- who was also popped back in October for driving under the influence -- was charged yesterday with the formal DUI charge:

"Risky Business" beauty Rebecca De Mornay was charged today by the L.A District Attorney's office with two counts of misdemeanor driving under the influence, stemming from her October 30 arrest. See, driving under the influence isn't just for the youngsters! Cops pulled over the 48-year-old actress on Sunset Blvd. on the night before Halloween. During the stop, cops told TMZ they "immediately detected an odor of alcoholic beverages." They told us De Mornay was asked to perform several field sobriety tests, which she failed. Police say her blood alcohol level was .09, just over the legal limit. She was cited and released from the Beverly Hills police station. De Mornay will be arraigned on December 31, but she does not have to appear. Will it ever stop? I don't understand how it is SO DIFFICULT to get a sober person to drive you home after you've had too much to drink. You'd think that celebs wouldn't want to risk their lives drunk driving so that they can, you know, actually live long enough to enjoy their wealth. I just don't get it. [Source]

And speaking of brilliant celebs who have been busted for DUI, here are pictures of Mischa Barton as she unsuccessfully tried to sneak out of jail yesterday morning after her arrest for impaired driving and drug possession. TMZ reports that Mischa wasn't just busted for being under the influence of alcohol ... she was also under the influence of marijuana and possibly prescription pills! Damn!

A West Hollywood police source tells TMZ that when she was arrested, Mischa Barton blew a .12 on her breathalyzer test, admitted to smoking marijuana earlier that day (which cops found in her car) and had what cops say looked like prescription drugs in her car -- in an unlabeled bottle ... Barton was popped at 2:45 AM Thursday in West Hollywood. Cops pulled her over after they witnessed her "straddling two lanes of traffic and failed to signal when making a turn." She was arrested on suspicion of DUI, possession of narcotics and driving on a suspended license. Well, we learned from Lindsay Lohan's arrest that possession of drugs doesn't really amount to much ... Mischa might've only had to serve 15 mins. of jail time had that been the only offense ... but if we look to the Paris Hilton test case, that suspended license charge could really eff Mischa up. Who knows how long she might have to cool her heels in the big-house on that charge. You know, Mischa Barton's arrest yesterday really brought 2007 to a nice close ... every single one of the classic Hollywood "It" Girls was arrested this year, at least one was arrested twice -- Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie, Britney Spears and now Mischa Barton were all arrested in 2007. That has to be some kind of record. [Source, Source]

Paris Hilton has left the sunny shores of Hawaii, where her family was spending some after-Xmas downtime this week, and has already made her way back to LA:

Maybe Paris cut her trip short so that she can start saving her money now that she knows her grandfather, Barron Hilton, Sr., is planning to donate 97% of his fortune to charity. Poor thing ... $5 million dollars just doesn't go as far as it used to. [Source]

While Paris was leaving Hawaii, Neil Patrick Harris and his hottie boyfriend David Burtka were arriving in Hawaii ... here is a cute pic of the happy couple upon their arrival:

These two make such a great couple ... we don't get to see enough of these lovebirds out and about. I hope there will be some half-nekkid beach shots in the very near future :) [Source]

Here is another pic of a couple of hot guys, this time with a baby:

Unfortch Mark Ruffalo and Ethan Hawke aren't together together ... they were just hanging out with Mark's baby daughter Odette ... but don't you think that they make a really cute looking family? [Source]

Now that Fergie is all engaged to the superhawt Josh Duhamel, she's going around town innocently flashing her phat-ass diamond engagement ring:

Blah. I really *want* to be happy for her ... I do, I do, I do ... but I honestly would much prefer that Josh stay single. Boo. [Source]

Lindsay Lohan has flown the coup ... she packed up her bags and her BFF Patrick and has made her way to Capri, Italy to do some shopping (natch) and presumably to attend the 12th Annual Capri Hollywood International Film Festival:

I just hope she doesn't come back with a new douchebag boyfriend. I hope she keeps her shopping pursuits confined to Prada stores. [Source]

Jessica Alba is finally starting to show signs of an actual baby bump (I think) which is great news because she has finally decided to get engaged to her babydaddy Cash Warren. She ain't gonna let Fergie Ferg be the only one to show off her new diamond ring:

Mom-to-be Jessica Alba was spotted over the Christmas holiday with a rock on her left ring finger – and the rumors are true: She and boyfriend Cash Warren are engaged, her rep confirms to PEOPLE. "I can confirm that they are engaged," says publicist Brad Cafarelli. Earlier this month, the couple announced to PEOPLE that they are expecting a baby. Hmm ... I really do hope that things work out for Jessica and that she is not getting married just because she's pregs. Shotgun weddings never really survive in Hollywood ... especially with an on and off couple like Jessica and Cash. I hope they know what they're doing. [Source, Source, Source]

In happy, they deffo know what they're doing, couples news ... here are a couple of new pics of Gwen Stefani and hubby Gavin Rossdale (sans baby boy Kingston James) out for a stroll together in London, England earlier this week:

Now these two make an amazing couple ... they always seem so happy and so perfectly matched ... even when they dress. It'd be maddeningly sickening if I didn't like them so much. [Source]

Pink reader Kate sends in an old skool pic of Gossip Girl's Penn Badgley hanging out with a couple of dudes, one of which looks a lot like Milo Ventimiglia:

Maybe it's not Milo but there is a resemblance. I wonder of Penn and Milo really are friends from back in the day. I'd be happy to hear from anyone if they have further info/other photos of these guys together. [thanks Kate]

UPDATE: Pink readers Alyssa, Jessica Rupali, Liz and Ashley gave me the head's up that Penn and Milo starred together in a very short-lived TV series called The Bedford Diaries, from whence comes the above photo (which also features Ernest Waddell).

Here are the first pictures from the new Hulk movie, named this time around The Incredible Hulk, which stars Edward Norton as Bruce Banner:

I have high hopes that Marvel is going to get this movie right this time. I'm encouraged that the new Hulk will look something like THIS and hopefully nothing like THIS. [Source]

And finally, here is the poster artwork for the new Neil Gaiman stop-motion movie version of his book Coraline, which features the voices of Dakota Fanning and Teri Hatcher:

And here are a few screencaps from a very short sneak preview from the movie itself:

I have to say, I am very excited for this new movie. I loved Stardust (which was based on Neil's book of the same name) and I really loved Beowulf (Neil wrote the screenplay) so I'm pretty sure I'm gonna dig Coraline. I was a bit worried when I heard that Dakota Fanning and Teri Hatcher would star in the film ... but I'm very encouraged that the movie will be animated and only their voices will be used. It is a great time to be a Neil Gaiman fan :) [Source]

Les News:
So, sadly, I had to say goodbye to Sarah and Mark yesterday afternoon as I packed up my shizz and moved out of their home. They are the most amazing hosts and I love them both dearly for sharing their beautiful home with me for so long. I had a nice dinner with my parents before I had to be at the airport ... and arrived here in NYC right on time. Unfortch, David's flight from Florida was really delayed so I had to find other entertainment until he arrived. Fortunately, Monique was having drinks with a friend nearby at a bar called Reservoir so I hung out and drank with them until David arrived ... hours late. We got hammered but it really made the time fly by. David arrived home well after midnight, just in time for us to order and devour greasy pizza and then pass out.

Ah, it's great to be in the city again. The weather is surprisingly warmer than I thought it would be ... it's gonna be a great trip.

I hope y'all have a great weekend and that y'alls New Year's Eve plans are coming together nicely! I am out.
