Risky Bizznazz

I need to thank the many people who emailed me various links that broke the news that Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are hellbent on grossing out the world by revealing that they are dating:

Um ... let me be the first to say YUCK!

People magazine says:

The romance was confirmed by his rep after he and Holmes were photographed together, hand in hand, in Rome on Wednesday evening.

"She's a really genuine person," says the friend. "She's the real deal."

Access Hollywood adds:

Holmes's representative also confirmed the match, saying, "They've been dating for a while."

The Insider has the story too but offers no new information, but it does have the picture you see above.

What the hell??? He is way too old for her! Um HELLO ... are they trying to be the new Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore?

More on this as it develops. Thanks again to all of you who sent me the story ... I was busy at the Garbage concert ... but we know that good gossip waits for no man. I'll have great Garbage pix to share tomorrow.


Smile Like You Mean It

Okay, I don't mean to harp on the issue but I have made it a habit to chronicle the time apart that Ryan Phillipe and Reese Witherspoon have been enjoying in recent weeks. So Phillispoon (or Witherpe?) made their first public appearance together last night at the Crash premiere, here are a few more pictures:

They really don't look very lovey-dovey (and he doesn't look happy at all). The last time they were out together in public was at one of the Academy Award after parties ... they were cold to one another then too. I hate to admit it but they do make a cute couple, so I actually hope that they do stay together.

We'll see how this continues to play out. They may make a concerted effort to appear in public together ... or things can go back to normal ... with each of them doing their own thing on their own. I guess we'll see ... and I'll be watching.


Lick It Up

Did you know that Britney Spears is a Radiohead fan? Well she is ...

And, apparently, it's very funny. But when Britney is not out shopping then she's out with her hubby Kevin Federline (fresh from the golf course) for a very nice dinner ... we can assume:

The doggie bag isn't from McDonald's so we can hope it was a nice restaurant. But it's not all fun and games for our dear Spederline ... no siree ... they are working too. It appears that they are filming some promo spots for their new UPN reality show, tentatively titled, Britney & Kevin:

May 17th can't get here soon enough for me! Woot!

Well look at this ... it seems that Ryan Phillipe and Reese Witherspoon actually know one another:

To be quite honest, just because she accompanied him to the premiere of his new movie Crash it doesn't mean that all is swell in Pleasantville. The last time the 2 of them were seen together in public was for an Academy Award party ... where they showed up together and then proceeded to ignore each other for the rest of the night. Hmmm ...

Another day, another bar for Tara Reid:

She has got to be the epitome of the poster child for barflies everywhere.

Additionally, another day, another man for a drunken Tara to be draped all over:

This time it's some random guy who got to savor Tara Reid in all her glory. I hope he likes living with herpes.

Angelina Jolie and son Maddox were all over New York City yesterday ...

I heard that Brad Pitt is still in Africa doing some charity work. I can totally believe the story that Angelina tipped off the paparazzi that the 2 were vacationing in Africa last week ... the sooner they can be open about what they are doing together, the sooner she can get a daddy for Maddox.

What is Jessica Simpson doing in this ridiculous-looking military outfit?

Hahahaha! Whatever, I'm sure she's a great morale boost for our troops but she looks like an emaciated Private Benjamin in that outfit. [via ONTD!]

Queen Latifa is usually a beautiful woman:

... usually ... What is going on with those braids?! They look terrible ... I really hope they are for some movie role because if she thinks that is a good look for her then she is sorely mistaken.

Hilary Duff and Michelle Trachtenberg have become fast friends:

Awww, aren't they so cute?

Colin Farrell looks like he loves being a daddy to son James:

What a cute picture ... what is going on with all these hot dads? Maybe I need to get a kid to carry around too.

Prince Harry looks pissed in this picture:

And you can't even see his girlfriends face. Does Harry look at all like Prince Charles to you? Doesn't he look more like Princess Diana's horse riding instructor, James Hewitt? I'm just saying ...

Wow, Jesse McCartney is all growed up:

I really doubt he knows what to do with all those boobs but ... he's gotta learn sometime. Check out more pictures at Oh No They Didn't.

Here's another picture for the WTF?! file:

I love My Chemical Romance ... and I like pineapples ... but I'm not sure how I feel about this picture.

Kirsten Dunst is making a movie:

Something to do with Marie Antionette ... but she looks a lot like a reject from the Madonna Vogue performance from the MTV VMA's in the early 90's.

Christina Applegate is a far cry from her Married With Children days:

She fancies herself a Broadway star now ... well, as long as she stops breaking her ankles ... she might have a chance.

Kelly Osbourne showed up at MisShapes in NYC this past weekend but Annie, the electro Kylie Minogue, showed up the weekend before last:

Boo! I would have loved to have been there. I love her!

These pictures are making the rounds ... the French Anti-AIDS campaign is quite eye-catching:

SO GROSS!!! You can see the full size pictures of THE GUY and THE GIRL at

The news:
So Kirsten and I got to see Juliette & The Licks at the Magic Stick last night and we had an absolute blast! I was very surprised by the crowd ... I'm not sure what I was expecting but the place was full of burnout metal heads. Local band Broadzilla opened the show ... and then Juliette & her Licks took the stage:

At first she was a little subdued ... I looked over and Kirsten and gave her a look like "Is this all that we're gonna get?" but as soon as she warmed up (and as soon as the crowd warmed up) she exploded! It was such a fun show ... I managed to get a setlist and we got to meet her afterwards:

Kirsten took this picture of the 2 of us. We had so much fun!

You can see all of the pictures that I took last night HERE.

Tonight I'm seeing Garbage:

And I can't wait ... I hear they are allowing cameras on this tour ... so we'll see ... and I'm out.

PS: Much love goes to They gave me a shout out yesterday that made my one-day traffic soar to over 20,000!
