Twas The Night Before, The Night Before Xmas

SOOO much to do today before Sarah's big Holiday Bash ce soir but let's get to the day's goss ...

The official website of Britney Spears Beauty products has been updated with a few goodies to help promote Britney's new fragrance (which doesn't get released until after Xmas ... which I don't quite understand) Midnight Fantasy. At the site you can download AIM buddy icons, My Space templates and a widget that will count down to the fragrance's release. There is also a "new" Britney Spears photo up on the site:

I put "new" in quotation marks because I sincerely doubt that this photo was taken recently, at best it's "formerly unseen". It has been a long time since Britney looked like this, even with the aid of Photoshop I still don't believe this is a recent photo. It looks like it came from the same photo session she did for the tour book from her Onyx Hotel World Tour. In any regard, it's a neat photo ... even if it's nothing more than a long-lost fantasy.

Here are a few photos of celebs Melissa Joan Hart, Jennifer Love Hewitt, her boyfriend WhatsHisName, Sally Kirkland and Jason Ritter donating some time to help feed the homeless at the LA Mission for the holiday season:

I cannot stress how cool it is that these celebs even considered taking the time to help feed the homeless for the holidays. It takes quite a bit of effort to actually go out and do something like this and I want to commend them for doing so. It's so easy to get wrapped up in the franticness that comes along with the holidays ... all the running around, shopping, meeting up with friends and family ... but there are many, many people out there who have nowhere to go for Xmas dinner (or for dinner in general, for that matter). Kudos to those of you who give of your time and of your generosity to help others in need. Truly, this is the reason for the season. [Source]

Xtina Aguilera, fresh off a plane from Europe where she was on tour, is back at home in Southern California with her hubby Jordan Bratman where it appears they will be spending their holidays. Here are a few cute pictures of Xtina and Jordy doing a little shopping and ice cream eating in LA yesterday:

It looks like they're getting into the holiday spirit ... and it looks like someone is going to get a tacky-looking gift basket for Xmas. [Source]

Victoria Beckham also spent some time doing Xmas shopping this week but because she weighs only 45 lbs. (if you factor out her 95 lb. plastic breasts) and because the stores she shopped at kept giving her free champagne to drink ... well ... Miss Posh got a little sloshed from all the shoppin', boozin' and no eatin':

OH dear. What started out as a civilised shopping trip ended with VICTORIA BECKHAM stumbling out of a hotel bar. The ex-Posh Spice was "tired and emotional" as she left London's Claridge's and hauled off her heels as she got in her chauffeured limo. It's hardly surprising -- Victoria and a few pals necked EIGHT bottles of Krug champagne over the afternoon and into the evening. One onlooker said: "Victoria had quite a bit to drink and was telling all her mates about her recent trip to America" ... The onlooker added: "Vic was going on about the size of JENNIFER LOPEZ's bum. Victoria said it really is big when you see it in the flesh." LOL! I love how "tired and emotional" is, like, code for "she was shitfaced". And what's this ... you get a little bubbly in Posh and her loose lips start flappin' and she starts gossipin'? That is awesome ... can you imagine what secrets could be gleaned from a drunk-ass Victoria Beckham? Ooooh, my mouth is salivating at the thought. I would happily imbibe her with another 8 bottles of champagne just for the opportunity to her her stories, especially the inside info about Becks ;) [Source]

Poor Thalia ... it looks like the little tumble that she took on the slopes at Buttermilk Mountain, Colorado turned out to be a pretty bad break for the Latina popstress ... here are new pictures of her hobbling around Aspen with a pair of tacky-ass crutches:

See, this is why Latinoids should stay as far away from the ski slopes as possible. Eveyone would be way better off if the Latins kept off the slopes and the Gringos stayed off the dance floor ;) OOOOOOOH Snap! [Source]

Ali Lohan was on hand at Planet Hollywood in NYC to celebrate her debut Xmas album ... but I previewed a few of the tracks and I gotta say ... she should deff NOT be celebrating that album:

I mean, nothing against little Ali but the album is horrendous. The only voice on the album worth hearing is Amy Grant -- who duets with Ali on a song. I suppose the track Silent Night which features Dina Lohan doing a reading midway thru the song is worth checking out just for the ridiculousness of it all. I'm not even kidding, and I'm being totally serious here ... all copies of this Xmas album should be burned in a pyre ... and this fugly little ensemble that she's wearing should be thrown right on top. Think I'm being harsh? Click HERE to preview the tracks on iTunes for yourself (make sure you listen to the song Lohan Holiday). [Source]

Paris Hilton is in Tokyo, Japan this week doing a bit of promo for the new Motorola RAZResque phone FOMA and here is a picture of Paris doing just that ... with a big dead fish:

Poor fish. [Source]

Carmen Electra is gettin' some lovin' from a new source these days ... here are a couple of cute pictures of Carmen lovin' up on an adorable little pooch earlier this week and she did some Xmas shopping:

They really do make a cute couple. [Source]

I was shocked to find out that Pink is the new Blog was named Best Blog in the Blender magazine/AOL Music 2006 Noisemaker Awards. Much love goes out to Pink readers Kristina and Amy for the head's up and much love goes to Kelly for the screenshot:

Thank you all for the amazing support, always. This is so amazing ... it's even cooler than the fact that K-Fed won the Douchebag of the Year award :) [Source]

Les News:
I finally got all of my Xmas shopping finished before meeting up with Megan and her boss Dr. Tony Youn (who is also a blogger in his own right) at the Living Room in Berkley for martinis and pizza. Let me tell you ... I have been dreaming about the Living Room's martinis for months now ... it is truly one of the things I miss most about Detroit. Last night I was introduced to the Cajun Martini and I fell IN LOVE! Anyways, we had a great dinner and a great bit of conversation. Megan and I tried to talk Tony to bring his wife out to Sarah's party tonight ...

... which brings me to Sarah's Party:

Only everyone we know will be there ... and it will be so damn fun! We're all excited for this party of all parties.

But for those of you in Detroit who are looking for a fun soiree tonight, head on over to OSLO for the Xmas SASS danceparty. I, unfortch, will not be able to attend but if it weren't for Sarah's party I'd be there for sure!

OY ... I gotta jet ... I have a date with Zakiya! Have a great weekend! I'm out.
