It Finally Has A Name?

And maybe a familiar theme song???

Interesting, yet, not at all fulfilling. Nice tease tho. [thanks Nic]

A Shadow Of His Former Self

Boo. Remember the good ol' days when the sight of Jake Gyllenhaal (usually shirtless or spandexed) would inspire Le Sighs and Woot!s left and right? It seems like an awfully long time since that was the case. Lately we've been hearing rumors that he and Reese Witherspoon are planning to wed and I find that I am not even bothered anymore. Here are new pics of Jake making his way thru LAX airport (thankfully, Reese-less) but unfortch the usual pangs of excitement are no more:

At least now I can fawn over the likes of Chace Crawford on a semi-hourlydaily basis. Jakey poo, lose the Witherspoon and come back to us ... or at the very least, take more clothes off. Thanks! [Source]

Patrick Dempsey Does Men's Vogue Magazine

Patrick Dempsey, McDreamy himself, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Men's Vogue magazine ... here are a couple pics:

Patrick's coverstory covers his love of racing and aspects of his family life but I think I'd much rather just enjoy the photos. I'm not at all interested in the things that make him unattainable ... I'm quite happy with the fantasy of denial ;) [Source]

Exit Strategy


Welp, it looks like CSI: lost itself another crime scene investigator in their season finale this week. Gary Dourdan, who was recently arrested on suspicion of drug possession in Malibu, CA, managed to return to work mere hours after he was released on bail only to film his last scenes on the series. I just got around to watching the season finale (which aired on Thursday) this morning and wasn't all that shocked to see how the ep ended:

E! is reporting that the show is already looking for his replacement after having found the replacement for Jorja Fox, the last CSI: actor to leave the show. I must say, I liked Dourdan's character on the show (Warwick Brown) but his behavior in real life has always been so unsavory to me. Out of love for the show, I do wish him well ... he's gonna need all the luck he can muster to try and get out of those drug charges against him. [Source, Source]

The TV Guide: Rollin' On V-Dubs

Yesterday afternoon I met up with Steph and Alek so that we could visit a few car dealerships since they are in the market for some new wheels and I have recently decided to get a new car myself. Some of you old skool readers may recall that I used to drive a VW Beetle back in Detroit but had to leave it at home because it wasn't a big enough car to haul my trailer across the country when I made the move to LA in 2006. I ended up bringing my parent's unused 2001 Honda Accord to LA with me so I figured it was finally time for me to get a new car ... so, S+A and I went to check out the new German cars. We visited VW, Audi and BMW but from the start, we were really taken with the fun cars at Volkswagen. Here are some pics from yesterday's dealership fun and a few pics that we took after dinner:

I love my Beetle so much that I was insistent that we swing by VW to check out their newest cars ... Steph immediately fell in love with a creme colored VW convertible Beetle (which was labeled, "Le Creme Puff" -- perfect for him) and I was very impressed with the new 2009 VW Tiguan. I've been thinking about getting a cross-over SUV type vehicle and I think this might be the one for me. The enormous moon roof almost sold me instantly but the rest of the car's features really impressed me as well -- and it's a VW, and I love VWs. I kinda love that Heidi Klum and Seal appear in an ad for the Tiguan as well :) I still have to kick around a few ideas but the Tiguan is top on my list right now.

After we did the car thing, we dined at Houston's before heading out to LAX to pick up S+A's friend Sebastian who flew in from France for the weekend.

It's hot today ... I hope y'all can get out and enjoy the day today.

A New Breed Of Doll

Skye Sweetnam has *just* released her latest DIY music video for her song Baby Doll Gone Wrong (which is on her new album Sound Soldier) and sent the vid personally to me so that I can share it with all y'all ... check it out:

This amazingly fun music video was made by Skye herself (in fact, she just finished it today) and features her adorable little cousin Hannah and a bunch of wickedly fun, deliciously twisted imagery. I always love it when Skye Sweetnam puts out a music vid because you know it's gonna be really freakin' cool. I love that Skye wanted the Pink is the new Blog readers to be among the first peeps to check out her video ... I hope you enjoy!!!

In High Demand

Gossip Girl's Michelle Trachtenberg was lookin' all kinds of fabulous at the Gen Art 10th Anniversary Styles Runway & Awards Launch Party which was held (strangely enough) at a Sunglass Hut store in NYC earlier this week ... here are a few pics:

Can I just say how much I *love* it that my girl MT is everyone's favorite darling these days? Her on-going stint as the deliciously evil Georgina Sparks on Gossip Girl has elevated her to the top of the Hollywood "It" Girl pack again. She is in such demand that she (and to be fair, her other GG cohorts) has been showing up at events all over the place. I am looking forward to seeing a lot more of her in the coming weeks and months ... she is, after all, the girl that everyone wants :) [Source]

Who's The Bossy?

Lindsay Lohan will be releasing Bossy, the first single off her new as-yet-untitled album, on May 27 and here is our first look at the single artwork:

As was reported earlier this month, Ne-Yo revealed that he wrote the song expressly for and with Lindsay Lohan in mind:

"I wrote it for her because when she's on her game, you can see these traits in her. When she's focused, she exudes the aura of a boss with ease," Ne-Yo explains. "When [producer] Stargate and I were approached with the task, we viewed it as a challenge. 'Can we make a song for Lindsay Lohan that people were gonna take seriously?' I think we did it." In the song's chorus, Lohan unapologetically sings, "I'm just a little bossy. I like it how I like it when I like it and that's how it is." Ne-Yo says the song is about strength. "It's basically about a woman being strong enough to get what she wants when she wants it," he tells PEOPLE. "In this case, 'Bossy' is a term that describes confidence and power." "Bossy" is slated to appear on Lohan's as-yet untitled third album, due on Motown Records later this year.

I loved the track as soon as I heard it the first time (click HERE if you have yet to hear it for yourself) ... Ne-Yo writes great songs and I think that Lindsay will have a huge hit album if this is any indication of what her new disc may sound like overall. [Source]

Happiness Is ...

Yesterday we saw pics from a "bachelor dinner" at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills, CA for Pete Wentz (attended by his father Pete Wentz, Sr. and his soon-to-be father-in-law Papa Joe Simpson) just 2 days before his scheduled wedding and today we have a few pics from the afterparty that night. Pete and his fiancée Ashlee Simpson were joined by Jessica Simpson and others at the Roosevelt Hotel for some late night/early morning partying ...

... but by the looks of the message on Pete's t-shirt, he already looks really spent. I hope Pete is sure about what he is doing ... it sounds like a lotta hard work to be a son-in-law in the Simpson family. Yeah, I really hope he knows what he is doing. [Source]

The Fauxmance

It would seem that whatever Papa Joe Simpson wants, Papa Joe Simpson gets. Amid swirling rumors that Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo have broken up (well, the rumors actually claim that Tony dumped Jessica weeks ago), a new bit of unsubstantiated news came out that Papa Joe was asking (insisting?) that Tony still accompany Jessica to the wedding of Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz (due to take place today) despite any break-up as a show of support for the family. After that news came out, Jessica and Tony were conveniently seen lunching together yesterday here in LA ... HMMMMM:

Photo credit: Bauer-Griffin

Jessica Simpson was seen having lunch with Tony Romo in L.A. Friday at Katsuya after three weeks of not being photographed together and widespread reports the couple had split. Columnist Alan Peppard of The Dallas Morning News reported Simpson and Romo were dunzo Thursday. Despite rep denials, "two people close to Tony and Jess have told me that the glam couple is splitsville, kaput, over, put a fork in it," Peppard wrote. Another report in the Chicago Sun-Times said Romo grew tired of Simpson's increasingly meddlesome father Joe ... "Tony did dump Jessica," a source close to the Dallas Cowboys quarterback told "Of course, she's upset!" So are they really over? "He's broken up with her before, but I don't know if they'll get back together this time," a source tells Us. Romo could be in town for Ashlee Simpson's wedding to Pete Wentz on Saturday. "Joe has called Tony and asked him to come to show support for the wedding," a source told Us. Though on Monday of this week, Simpson's rep denied a split, her PR people have remained silent all week on the couple's status. Pictures of Romo partying with a Jessica look-a-like did not help matters.

Personally, based on things that I've heard from eyewitnesses of Romo's behavior in recent weeks, I believe that they are dunzo (or at least, were dunzo) and that Tony is just being a nice guy by attending Ashl33n's wedding with Jessica for the Simpson family. Could it be that they could may get back together? It's possible but I find it unlikely. The drama is pretty ridic, tho ... all this attention on Jessica when it should be all about Ashlee -- and well, maybe that's the point. [Source]
