Why So Fug?

Can you guess which sad little Hollywood "It" Girl is trying to start the new fashion trend of wearing dead vermin as well as studded moccasins?

It's not really all that hard to make a guess ... she loves wearing dead animals and tends to have a soft spot for ridiculous footwear. Good luck!! [Source]


Because You Don't Smell J. Lo Enough

Jennifer Lopez has decided that there aren't enough men out there who smell like her ... so, she has decided to come up with a solution. Here is the new ad poster and bottle for Deseo Men, J. Lo's new fragrance for men:

I, uh, don't know who the target audience is for this new J. Lo fragrance for men but I suspect that the queens in Miami will be smelling an awful lot like her hubby Marc Anthony (who is, most likely, contractually required to wear Deseo Men) once this stuff hits the shelves at CVS. [Source]


The TV Guide: The Sleep Over

Yesterday was a pretty chill day ... I was kinda wrecked from my late night before so I kinda took it easy. I did venture out for a haircut in the evening and then met up with Steph and Alek for a sushi dinner at Fat Fish in West Hollywood. The food was especially good, as was the drink, so we indulged. We had planned on meeting up with Darion and Josh at Akbar but the three of us kinda fell asleep instead. Steph and Alek were very kind enough to let me crash in their guest room so that was pretty much my night:

They were also kind enough to send in this photo.

The sun finally came out today so I'm trying to wrap things up so I can get out and enjoy it. The Frenchies were talking about seeing a movie so I may tag along later on. I'm not sure what the plan is for tonight but hopefully it'll be more exciting than last night ;)

Michelle Trachtenberg Does Entertainment Weekly

Gossip Girl's new bad girl Michelle Trachtenberg (who plays Georgina Sparks) was featured in last week's issue of Entertainment Weekly but since I've been in NYC for the past week and my mail was collecting here in LA, I failed to see the issue until I arrived home ... even still, I think posting the pics of MT in EW is still very much worth checking out:

Hee hee ... even tho I loved checking out the pics, the accompanying article warns of heavy spoilers for the show so I've held off on reading it (but you can read it HERE if you so desire to be spoiled). I just love everything about Georgina Sparks on GG and I am very much looking forward to watching her bring even more havoc on the show. Clearly she has ownership of a scandalous video that Serena doesn't want anyone to see (especially Dan) but there's more ... Serena said something about "killing" someone in last week's ep ... could her secret be that sinister? Is there a twist still yet to be played? What exactly is evil beyotch Georgina's role in the secret? This Monday night, we'll find out -- something tells me it's gonna be a dozy. The GG producers totally got it right in casting MT in this role ... she can do bitchy very well ... I just can't wait to see how far she's gonna take it. [Source]


Mo' Joe

Last month a whole slew of promo photos from the new live-action GI Joe movie made their way to the InterWeb, giving us our first look at the characters Duke (Channing Tatum), General Hawk (Dennis Quaid) and Ripcord (Marlon Wayans), Baroness (Sienna Miller), Cover Girl (Karolina Korkova), Scarlett (Rachel Nichols) and ninjas Snake Eyes (Ray Park) & Storm Shadow (Byung-hun Lee) ... today we have a few more pics, 2 of characters we've seen already (Baroness and Gen. Hawk) and 2 of as yet unseen characters Destro (Christopher Eccleston) and Heavy Duty (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje):

Photo credit: Splash News

Fans of GI Joe know that Destro will end up with an entirely metal head so we've yet to see what that will look like and fans of Lost may recall that Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje played the mysterious Mr. Ecko on the show. As of yet, we haven't seen one photo of Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the role of Cobra Commander (in fact, we've not even seen a hint of him on the GI Joe set at all) but I suspect they will keep that reveal top secret until the movie comes out next year. But you know, these sorts of things have a funny way of leaking to the InterWeb anyways ;) We may be seeing it sooner than 2009. [Source]


The Leggings Just Won't Die

Lindsay Lohan spent part of her afternoon yesterday wooing the paparazzi to help add a bit more hype to promoting the new line of leggings that she is planning to sell. Linds embarked on a bit of a promo tour as she shot images around town that will be used to advertise her new line of leggings. Here are a few pics of Lindsay and a couple of models on Robertson Blvd. in West Hollywood, CA yesterday causing a stir with the paps while promoting her line:

To be fair, I hate capris way more than I hate leggings ... and to be honest, I kinda like the shiny leggings that have that rubberized look to them ... but really, I'm not Lindsay's target audience for this new line of leggings. Additionally, Lindsay's people are playing down reports that she has been axed from the new movie Manson Girls (reportedly because they couldn't find any other actresses that wanted to appear in the film with her) saying that she turned down the role to appear in upcoming episodes of Ugly Betty. Now that's a spin job you can be proud of. Besides, with her new role as leggings entrepreneur, does she really have time to be acting in major movies? [Source]


The Reunification Of Spederline?

While mama Britney Spears has been bizzy taking meetings with billionaires and putting the finishing touches on her guest appearance on How I Met Your Mother, her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James have been having a grand ol' time with their daddy Kevin Federline in the meantime. I have to admit, The Federline has really been stepping up in the "OK guy" category regarding his kids and his ex-wife Britney. Here is a pic of K-Fed and his sons enjoying a lovely day with their nanny and bodyguard at the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific earlier this week:

I am so happy that K-Fed has stopped being a douche bag and has started acting like a grown ass man. I've been so impressed with his commitment to his children and his commitment to working with Britney so that she can spend much needed time with her children. It's amazing how many strides both Brit and K-Fed have made in recent months (in Brit's case) and years (in K-Fed's case). It looks like they've finally both started to grow up. [Source]

Additionally, here are a couple of supercute pics of Jayden James making his way out of My Gym in the arms of his nanny yesterday:

I cannot believe how big he's gotten already. I understand that Britney may be enjoying an overnight visit with her sons for Mother's Day this weekend, something that K-Fed would have to allow. Truth be told, I've been so impressed with K-Fed lately that I wouldn't necessarily mind if he and Britney started hanging out together again with their kids. They may have been a bit of a mess the first time they got together but maybe they can get it right this time around. Yeah, I can't even believe I'm saying this either.


The Promo Preshow

In addition to various vid clips from the upcoming episode, CBS has also released one final promo pic from Britney Spears's guest stint on the season finale of How I Met Your Mother which airs on Monday night. Here is a very cute pic of Britney Spears (Abbie) and Neil Patrick Harris (Barney) on the set of the show:

It's unclear if Britney's second guest stint in 2 months will be able to generate the boffo ratings that her first guest stint did but I'm sure her appearance will bring more viewers to the season finale. In the preview clips that have been able to see, Barney proposes marriage to Abbie ... who appears to still be in love with Ted. However will this drama resolve itself? I guess we'll have to tune in Monday night to find out. [Source]


A Diamond Tattoo Is Forever

Here are a few scans from the new issue of People magazine which feature exclusive images from Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's Caribbean wedding last week. I have to say, the photos look a bit ... strange. I have a hard time seeing Mimi and Nick as a married couple ... and seeing them in their formal wedding attire doesn't really remedy that for me. I suppose they do look happy, tho. Additionally, People posted a new report about the bling that the newlyweds are rockin' these days as well as the new ink they each got to signify their lurve for one another:

Photo credit: People magazine

When Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey made their first public appearance as newlyweds on Thursday, the pair simply dazzled – almost as much as their wedding jewelry. Carey, who attended TIME magazine's "100 Most Influential People in the World" gala with her new husband, showed off her impressive pink diamond sparkler from of Jacob & Co. jewelers. The ring, valued at a whopping $2.5 million, is 17 carats. The center stone alone is 10-carats – a little smaller than a dime. "I wanted to do something extremely special, something that Mariah would really appreciate," Cannon told PEOPLE. "We got the pinkest stone we could find, surrounded by other diamonds." Carey definitely approved. "It's so clear, you can see my finger through it," she said. According to Jacob Arabo of Jacob & Co., Cannon "was very involved," in picking the ring, which has an emerald-cut fancy light pink center stone surrounded by 58 intense pink diamonds, flanked by two half-moon diamonds. "The way he came into the store, I knew this was very serious," Arabo told PEOPLE. "He said, 'Jacob, I’m in love. This is what I want to do.'" Meanwhile, Cannon's ring would make Liberace proud. The elaborate, chunky diamond band made its debut Thursday as he was leaving his New York City hotel. But while a diamond may be forever, the couple's new tattoos – his says "Mariah" across his shoulders, and hers reads "Mrs. Cannon" on the small of her back – will last a lifetime. "Rings and all that is special and exciting," said Cannon. "But to us, tattoos mean more than anything because it's something we never thought we'd do."

The diamonds, altho gaudy, I can appreciate because, after all, they can always be hawked later on. The tattoos, on the other hand, seem like a real bad idea. There is something very unlucky about getting someone's name tattooed on your body and I fear that this couple, despite being happy now, may live to regret them one day. In any event, Mimi and Nick are married, they are reveling in their marriage and I do wish them all the luck in the world. [Source]
