We had such a great afternoon and Reichen was so cool to let David me and hang out for his photoshoot. It was really a fun experience:
After the shoot was finished, we hightailed it to Pink Taco to meet up with Mike G. and his friends Amy and Matt, and my peeps Darion, Mike, Michael, Jordan and his little nephew for a dinner party celebration for Mike G.'s birthday ... here are a few pics from our dinner at Pink Taco and then from our afterparty at Akbar:
I got to meet Pink readers Nicole (at Pink Taco) and Gillian (at Akbar who is in town from San Francisco, CA) last night ... which was such a pleasure. At Akbar we ran into Jim and Derek who were partying with Jim's friends from Philly (friends from high school, I might add) who are in town for the weekend. Cyndy and I felt it necessary to take a cute pic together which I think turned out totally faboo. David and I were sure that we weren't going to stay out too late ... next thing we knew the lights came on and they were throwing us out onto the streets cuz the place was closing. It was crazy fun, tho :)
This afternoon we're gonna try and grab one last moment with Steph and Alek before they fly off to Paris, France for a month ... and then David flies back to NYC later on tonight. No worries tho, David will be back next weekend :)
I hope all y'all are having an amazing weekend ... thus far, it's been a pretty good one here in SoCal :)

I've always been a fan of guys who like to hang around together wearing as little clothing as possible, as if nothing could be more natural in the world. You find this sort of masculine behavior in locker rooms, fraternity houses and at gyms. I must say, it gives me a nice feeling seeing men being this comfortable with one another because it gives me hope that others find the same thing equally comfortable. Guys like Taylor are pioneers for helping world peace come to fruition ... after all, it'd be impossible to hate your neighbor if you loved him enough to stand around half-nekkid with him. See folks, Hot Dudes of the Week aren't just man-candy ... they're also goodwill ambassadors ... and for that they deserve our undying gratitude. [Source]

Margaret performed here in LA last weekend but, unfortch, I was in NYC with David at the same time. I am not a big fan of stand-up comedy but I do love going out to see Margaret live on stage (Kathy Griffin is the only other comic that I'll venture out to see as well). I haven't seen Margaret live in many years ... the last time I saw her was back in Michigan when she performed at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor in the early '00s. I've been hearing rumblings that Margaret may be coming back to TV very soon and I couldn't be happier. She is truly one of the funniest people I've ever seen perform on stage and I am looking forward to enjoying her comic stylings again. BTW, she looks pretty damn cool in those pink sneaks ;) [Source]

The poor woman was pinned between an ass and a hard place. If I ever start feeling bad for my traveling situation in the future I will think back on this picture and thank my lucky stars that I'm not Kate Moss. Sad face. [Source]

Ex-husband Ryan Phillippe confesses that he finds it "bizarre" seeing photos of Reese and Jake together and I must concur. I still have a hard time believing that they are an actual couple ... despite the fact that they do spend a lot of time together. They really look more like friends to me. But whatever they "are" to one another the fact remains that they are pretty much joined at the hip these days ... a fact that we all must deal with as best we can. I choose to live in my happy delusion that Reese and Jake are nothing more than besties who are spending way too much time together because they are both jaded by love. Reese prolly misses the happy days with Ryan and I know that Jake misses the days with Matthew McConaughey and Lance Armstrong ;) [Source]

Apparently, one of the paps did ask the ladies if they were planning to work together again soon and Holly Marie answered "it's possible" ... which is far from an admission but is better than nothing :) I understand there was bad blood between Shannen and the other Charmed co-star Alyssa Milano so I think it's foolhardy to count on a Charmed reunion ... but stranger things have happened. I'm just really happy to see Shannen and Holly together. I miss the Charmed days ... it's be amazing if they did work together again. [Source]

I'm not entirely sure why Sean Preston doesn't get in on the My Gym action with his little bro but maybe he's got his own peeps to chill with and doesn't want to be bothered. We haven't heard of any visits with mommy Britney Spears in some time now ... but I'm fairly certain things are going well on that front. I must admit, it's so entirely refreshing to not be inundated with tragic Britney Spears news and to see nice, normal pics of her kids just ... living their happy little lives. I just couldn't be more pleased that things appears to be steadily on track for Britney and her boys ... I always knew that the good would win out over the bad. [Source]

It was the best of both worlds at Saturday's Kids Choice Awards for Miley Cyrus, who took home trophies for favorite female singer and TV actress and rocked the show with a spirited performance of her hit song, "GNO — Girls Night Out." It was also a slime spectacle for the Nickelodeon children's television network, which broadcast the 21st annual show live from UCLA's Pauley Pavilion in front of 10,000 screaming fans, almost all of them teens and preteens. Akon crashed a dune buggy into giant containers of Nickelodeon's trademark green slime, Usher blasted a sumo wrestler with slime fired from a cannon and supermodel Heidi Klum, attached to a bungee cord and wearing a specially equipped "butt spike belt," flung herself into a wall covered with slime-filled balloons. "Don't try this at home," boxer Laila Ali said as Usher turned the cannon on the sumo wrestler. The slime stunts and other assorted foolishness — which included a soundtrack of celebrities burping as an instrumental version of the Village People song "YMCA" played in the background — took up so much time that presenters never got around to announcing three awards. In the categories that were announced, teen heartthrob Drake Bell was another double winner, collecting his third consecutive orange blimp-shaped trophy for favorite TV actor and another for favorite TV show for Drake and Josh. Drake and Josh upset Cyrus' hit program Hannah Montana in the TV show category. Other winners were Eddie Murphy for favorite voice from an animated movie for Shrek the Third, American Idol for favorite reality show and, one of the biggest crowd favorites of the night, the Jonas Brothers for favorite music group. The ever-polite Jonas Brothers each offered brief thank-yous. Chris Brown won for favorite male singer. Ryan Seacrest accepted the reality show award saying he looked forward to presenting it to "two of the three" of the show's judges. Cyrus, in a black dress with silver spangles, thanked several people, including her mother, father, agent, manager "and my lord and savior Jesus Christ."
Oh, Miley ... hang on to that down home innocence that you wear so well ... I'm sure it will serve you well as your career continues to blossom and expand. It wasn't that along ago that another teen popstress was peddling the same persona at events like these back in the late '90s. [Source]
As always, the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards is a big, fun awards event that is geared for kids and always manages to put some of the biggest celebs in very compromising positions ...

And really ... who wouldn't want to see Orlando Bloom covered in slime. I love that the Kid's Choice Awards even exists ... that celebs take note of the kid market and show up year after year to court that market says a lot about the power of kids. Of all the perennial awards shows that keep churning themselves out, this is one of the ones I look forward to most. I can't think of another show that so proudly puts poorly grown porn 'staches on display ... and not even in a dirty way. Love it.

Despite reports that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt wedded in a New Orleans church Saturday, a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE there was "no wedding." The family spent a weekend in New Orleans two weeks ago – as Pitt broke ground on his Make It Right project to help rebuild the city's Lower Ninth Ward – but they have recently been in the Austin, Texas, area while Pitt films Tree of Life with Sean Penn.
So, at this point, who knows who's right. If the family has, in fact, been in Texas over the weekend then the Star report would have no merit ... but the family has not been photographed, to my knowledge, so we still really don't know which "source" to believe. The story is still developing ... I guess we'll know soon. [Source]
