What will 2011 bring for you?

So Santa has been and gone for another year.
My girls believe that he landed on our roof, shimmied down the drain pipe and came in through the laundry door - because we don't have a chimney.  Annabel was terribly concerned about this factor, waking me super early one morning not long before Christmas to ask me where our chimney was (bless).




I don't usually do too much these days for NYE.  Most of the time we spend it with friends in someone's backyard, trying to suppress yawns after 9 o'clock and desperate for midnight to hit so we can head off to bed because with small children, one doesn't have the luxury of a sleep-in on such occasions. This year is the exception to the rule (yay!) because I will be spending it with my girlfriends sans children (and hubby)at a house by the beach.  


Happy New Year everyone!  Let's hope that 2011 is full of prosperity, adventure and good health for all of us.

Victoria Beckham’s New Year’s Resolution – Drink Less Champagne!

 Victoria Beckham’s New Year’s Resolution – Drink Less Champagne!

Ah, it’s just about that time to start planning those New Year’s resolutions again, and Victoria Beckham has a few already. In order to begin 2011 on a healthier note, Victoria has a few resolutions for herself;
“I’d like to sleep more, drink more water and less champagne. But you have to keep it real.”
Hmmm, for a super busy mother of 3 with her own booming fashion line – not sure how real those are!  And I wonder if that resolution to drink less champagne will work out for her though, since she’s said that she and David Beckham keep their marriage alive by having weekly date nights;
“We go and get drunk and have a date every Wednesday.”
“Sometimes we treat each other to an afternoon at the Beverly Hills Hotel and we’ll each have a massage and spend the day in our robes.”
Well, maybe she can just drink less champagne every day of the week but Wednesday! Something tells me that the former ‘Posh’ Spice might have a hard time giving up her champagne:-D
So do you make new year’s resolutions?

Selena Gomez Admits To Having A Crush On…

 Selena Gomez Admits To Having A Crush On…

… ‘Tranformers‘ star Shia LaBeouf! Wonder how Justin Bieber feels about that? Or maybe Selena Gomez gave this interview before she began hanging out with the singer ;) . When asked what type of guy Selena likes, here was her response:
“I don’t have a perfect boy. I guess they need to be honest and they need to be some who can really be myself around. Although, if they look identical to Shia LaBeouf that would be great! You should be out having fun when you’re younger, not getting caught up in a committed relationship.”
Hmmm… Justin is cute and all, but let’s be honest: he’s no Shia.
Selena confessed she doesn’t even like dating.
“I don’t actually like dates. I get awkward as I never know what to do. I still get butterflies and wobbly legs around a boy I like. But the best thing is to be very open and don’t shut yourself off. Enjoy being young.”
That makes sense, seeing how Selena is only 18! But I still think Justin and Selena seem very friendly…

Leighton Meester Covers Seventeen Magazine

 Leighton Meester Covers Seventeen Magazine

I am a big Gossip Girl fan so I love to see Leighton Meester getting more exposure! Leighton covers the February issue of Seventeen Magazine and talks about how boyfriends really aren’t that important to her!
17 to LM – The last time we talked [for your cover in March 2009], having a boyfriend wasn’t a priority for you. Do you still feel that way?
LM – “Yeah. I’m glad that you’re reminding me of that! I would say the same thing today as well. I think that the importance of love is really strong for me in my life, whether it’s a guy or a friend or just my puppy. I think love changes you over time, and whether you have good or bad experiences, you always grow and learn from it. And if I shut love down or didn’t let it in, I would just be this really cold, sad person.”
Leighton’s issue of Seventeen will be on newsstands on January 4th. I love seeing her in clothes that aren’t her signature ‘Blair Waldorf’ look! Leighton can be seen next in Country Strong, opening everywhere January 11 – are you planning on seeing it? Leighon sings in the movie and is pretty good!  I think it looks interesting, but not sure if I’m intrigued enough to see it in the theatres!

Brandi Glanville “Couldn’t Care Less” About Eddie Cibrian And LeAnn Rimes Engagement

 Brandi Glanville “Couldn’t Care Less” About Eddie Cibrian And LeAnn Rimes Engagement

There’s one person who couldn’t care less about the engagement news of LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian – Eddie’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville. Though she didn’t release a statement saying so, a friend of Brandi’s shared with Us Weekly:
“Brandi knew this was coming for a while, but after everything she’s been through since finding out, she couldn’t care less. LeAnn has gotten exactly what she wanted from the get go,”
The source then gives LeAnn a bit of advice/warning:
“[Brandi] never wanted Eddie back, so it didn’t matter if they got engaged, broke up or whatever. But now he’s LeAnn’s problem. She can wonder what he’s doing on those boys-only trips, who he’s always texting, who’s at his poker nights. As long as she continues to be good to her two boys, it doesn’t matter to Brandi.”
Well, at least her priority is how LeAnn treats her boys – that’s the most important part of the equation now. I wonder if these two ever did get together and talk like Brandi said she was ready to do? I suppose she has had a bit on her plate with the DUI and all.

I know they way they got together wasn’t ideal in any way, but hopefully they can all put it past them eventually and move on and heal. (imnotobsessed)

Vivid Entertainment’s Head Honcho To Buy Nadya “Octomom” Suleman’s House?

 Vivid Entertainment’s Head Honcho To Buy Nadya “Octomom” Suleman’s House?

Nadya Suleman is on the verge of losing her home once again, but this time she may have a “friend” willing to swoop in and rescue her from foreclosure. Steve Hirsch, head of Vivid Entertainment tells TMZ he is looking into buying the $450,000 note on the home! Vivid has been trying to woo Nadya into starring in a porn movie for some time now, so this just feels all kinds of wrong. He tells TMZ:
This would be a great opportunity to begin a relationship with Octomom.”
He’s reportedly trying to negotiate on the price of the note.

What do you think of it? On the one hand, it’d save her from being homeless, but on the other…it feels like blackmail, doesn’t it? Or just a way to hold her home over her head to get her to star in a video for their company. (imnotobsessed)

Tom Felton Visits The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter At Universal Orlando Resort

 Tom Felton Visits The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter At Universal Orlando Resort

Tom Felton, best known for portraying Draco Malfoy in the blockbuster Harry Potter series, visited with the Beauxbatons at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter during his recent visit to Universal Orlando Resort on December 28.

After enjoying Butterbeer with his friends and visiting Hogwarts castle, Felton spent the rest of his Universal Orlando vacation enjoying the rides and attractions at both theme parks.

I am SO JEALOUS!! I’m heading down to Orlando in a few months and am going to try my hardest to get to this theme park. I am HOPING I can make it happen. Have any of you been yet? As a fan, are you anticipating going this year?

Celebrity Pictures: Kim Kardashian

 Celebrity Pictures: Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian was spotted heading into a business meeting at a studio in Culver City. Pretty sure this is about the most casual we have EVER seen this girl dressed. And by casual, of course I mean topped off with an Hermes bag. What? That isn’t how you do casual?

Following the meeting, Kim tweeted,
OMG u guys have no idea what I’m doing today! You are gonna DIE.
And then shortly after wrote,
OMGGGG I’m nervous!!!!!!
I have to admit — I’m curious! What could possibly be more exciting than Mason saying Kim for the first time?!

Anyone have a guess as to this new and mysterious project Kim is working on? Movie? Song? What could it be?

Rep Confirms Reese Witherspoon And Jim Toth Are Engaged

 Rep Confirms Reese Witherspoon And Jim Toth Are Engaged

BAM! We have rep confirmation! As INO reported yesterday, Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth are engaged. Reese’s rep doesn’t give any details, but did verify that Jim Toth liked it so much he put a ring on it, and added,
“They are extremely happy.“
And I am happy for them. Nice to know that Reese never gave up on love and marriage after all she went through with Ryan Phillippe. Jim Toth seems like he is blending in well with the family.  I bet the kids are excited!

In case you are wondering just exactly who Jim Toth is — he’s an agent at Creative Artists Agency where Reese is a client of another agent.

Leighton Meester Is The Next Taylor Swift?

 Leighton Meester Is The Next Taylor Swift?

Uh oh. Looks like we have another Taylor Swift on our hands. Leighton Meester talked about what her process is when she writes songs for the band she’s in and how she goes about making her music. Sounds an awfully lot like someone else we know.
“I’m working with a band right now, doing a lot of acoustic music through singing and writing. It’s really fun and fulfilling. It’s an expression of what I have in my life and what I’m going through, or what I have gone through, and of course, it’s mostly about love or relationships. The ups and downs that come along, which I think are universal.”
Next thing you know we’ll be trying to guess which Gossip Girl co-star each song is about, kind of like we do with Taylor and her men.

Who here is a fan of Leighton’s music? Now that she’s also singing in movies, I wonder if she’s trying to steer her career towards more music and less acting?

Katy Perry Incorporating Scent Into Tour?

 Katy Perry Incorporating Scent Into Tour?

Oy vey! What will they come up with next?!

Sooooo….groundbreaking? Or just plain weird? Katy Perry wants her fans to have a full experience so she’s decided that she’s going to incorporate sense of smell into her next tour.
“It’s going to be great – all the dates have sold out in the UK already. I want it to be really fun and very visual.
“It’s going to engage all the senses, so we’re looking into alternative stuff like smell. We’re talking to a couple of companies at the moment about creating an aroma for the performance.”
Katy Perry adds that her wardrobe is a production in and of itself. She does wear some crazy tight clothes when she performs!
“There will be a medley of looks, and they’ll be very strong. When I get changed during a show it’s like I’m at a Formula One pit stop. There’s Velcro being ripped off and stuff getting strapped onto me.
“On my ‘Hurricane’ tour I wore a different outfit every single night. It was crazy, and not cheap.”
I’m not so sure I would enjoy a scent being blasted at my while I was at a concert. Sense of small is a very particular thing and what one person may love, another hates. Do you think you would enjoy the way Katy is going to incorporate scent into her tour?

Has Snooki Been Banned From Times Square On New Year’s Eve?

 Has Snooki Been Banned From Times Square On New Year’s Eve?

Well, ‘Jersey Shore’ spitfire Snooki hasn’t been completely banned from Times Square on New Year’s Eve. But her planned stunt has been forbidden, according to Pop Eater’s Rob Shuter.
“The Snooki ball drop isn’t going to happen in Times Square,” an insider tells me. “At midnight, the crowd and the media will be watching Mayor Bloomberg, Dick Clark and the official ball drop, not a cast member of the ‘Jersey Shore.’”
I wonder if it was Snooki spilling the beans on her plans that ruined it?
“No way would they allow this to take place. MTV rents a position in the Square that night like every other media outlet. You can’t get access to the Square without an official credential. You have to play by the official rules or you get kicked out, which is exactly what has happened to MTV and Snooki,” an insider tells me.
Who would you rather watch at the very beginning of 2011: the ‘Jersey Shore’ crew or the official ball drop (along with New York City Mayor Bloomberg and Dick Clark)?

Quote Of The Day – Amanda Seyfried

 Quote Of The Day – Amanda Seyfried
“I was super-outgoing until I was around 10. I got a bit older and started getting shy. Way too shy. “I felt so extremely ugly. When I look back, I was not ugly – I was cute and had a gap in my teeth. But I wish I could have enjoyed that part of my life and be more confident.”

Christie Brinkley Graces Prevention Magazine’s February Cover


Christie Brinkley sat down with Prevention magazine to dish on everything from beauty secrets to motherhood to romance. She shares:
On her divorce:
“You’ve got to find a way to keep laughing, even if it’s black humor, and my friends are very good at that. Some people think of happiness as a luxury, but it’s a necessity, and you need to make space for it in your life.”
On the possibilities of another romantic relationship:
“Most of the time, I’ve got my kids with me, so I’m not as prone to meeting people. And then, you never really know if someone is talking to you because you’re a celebrity. It’s not my number one priority.”
On her biggest career regret
“I didn’t do Saturday Night Live when they asked me to and I wished that I had now because I love that show and I faithfully watch it whenever I can, I rush back to get home for Saturday Night Live.”

“I didn’t do Saturday Night Live when they asked me to and I wished that I had now because I love that show and I faithfully watch it whenever I can, I rush back to get home for Saturday Night Live.”



On the pressures of the media spotlight:
“I also think that the TV shows and internet shows need all this celebrity scrutiny in them. It creates an environment for young girls of “how can anybody attain the perfect that they demand of you on all of these outlets.” There’s always somebody waiting to catch a bad angle and then send it out to the whole world. Girls are home alone in their room and going “well gosh I have cellulite on my leg like that and look how she’s being vilified.” What is that doing to everybody’s self esteem and confidence and willingness to just breathe and live and enjoy their life?”
Being a celebrity:
“I think for me the biggest positive that’s come from being sort of a celebrity or in the public eye is that it’s given me the ability to give back and to be able to speak out on issues that are important to me such as protecting our environment, children’s health issues and I consider that a real gift, a real honor to be able to help wonderful organizations achieve their goal.”
On family:
“I always knew I wanted to be a mother…it takes a lot of work. My work makes me a better mom. It gives me a little door to step out of my parenting and bring the excitement from that day back home.”
Her take on dieting:
“Saying you’re on a diet puts you in the frame of denying yourself. But if you replace ‘diet’ with ‘healthy choices,’ you’re giving yourself the gift of feeling good. Go ahead and have the Kit Kat at the movies. If you don’t satisfy an urge sometimes, you often substitute less-satisfying things and end up eating more. I’m cooking for two kids, and they don’t think a dish is complete unless it’s sitting on top of pasta!”
Her Beauty Secret To Young-Looking Skin
“It’s not a secret, I love to exfoliate. I once read a long, long time ago that men tend to look younger than women and it’s because they shave and when they shave they’re exfoliating their skin so I thought well I don’t want them to have an unfair advantage so I immediately started using exfoliators.”

Michael Jackson Killed Himself: Dr. Conrad’s Newest Plea

 Michael Jackson Killed Himself: Dr. Conrad’s Newest Plea

Michael Jackson killed himself according to Dr. Conrad Murray. A trial is about to begin over the involuntary manslaughter of the singer and Conrad’s lawyers will use the defense that Michael took his own life.

During yesterday’s initial hearing Dr. Conrad Murray’s team of lawyers put forth their defense and suggested that Michael administered the lethal dose of Propofol himself.

Defence lawyer J. Michael Flanagan said his client gave the singer just 25 milligrams of Propofol – much less than was found in his system and that a fingerprint found on a broken syringe on the bedroom floor has not been identified.

I guess all they are hoping to create is doubt. But to think that Michael Jackson killed himself? I’m not so sure the jury will believe that.

If Dr Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter, he will face up to four years in prison.

Marc Anthony Owes MILLIONS In Taxes

 
 Marc Anthony Owes MILLIONS In Taxes

Marc Anthony ONCE AGAIN is WAY behind on his taxes. Radar Online is reporting that the singer owes Nassau County $1.8 million in property tax and NY authorities have files charges against him to make sure the debt is paid.

This is ON TOP of the $1.6 million federal tax lien that was filed three months ago on the same property. Talk about swimming in the red.

But Marc probably isn’t stressing out. In 2007, he was ordered to pay $2.5 million in back taxes. This man is used to accumulating such large debt. Someone needs to hire a good accountant.

Queen Latifah Opens Up About Having Children In This Week’s Parade Magazine

 
 Queen Latifah Opens Up About Having Children In This Week’s Parade Magazine

Queen Latifah opened up to Parade Magazine about having a ten year plan, having children, and growing up Jersey. If you are a fan, you’ll be happy to know that in a few days you can catch Queen Latifah hosting the People’s Choice Awards (Jan 5th). Until then, here are some quotes from her recent interview.

10 year plan: I hope to be “on cruise control, with a couple of kids under my belt.”  Is  she moving in that direction?  “It’s in the Lord’s hands,” she says.

Growing up in New Jersey: “There’s something about growing up in New Jersey that prepares you for whatever you might encounter around the world. We’re not afraid to go places. I met Mike ‘The Situation’ because we were both on Jay Leno. He lives maybe 15 minutes from me. He was like, ‘If you ever get a flat tire, call me and I’ll hook you up.’ I love Jersey.”

Giving advice to Kate Middleton: “Make sure you have a sanctuary, because everybody in the world is going to be in your business. He happened to be born a prince; you happened to go to college and meet him. You’re two kids who fell in love. I just hope you have a happy life. And don’t take anything personally.”

Diane Kruger Lands New Movie Role: Marie Antoinette

 
 Diane Kruger Lands New Movie Role: Marie Antoinette

Diane Kruger has landed the lead role in the Benoît Jacquot-directed “Farewell, My Queen” – a movie focusing on the life of Marie Antoinette during the final days of the French Revolution. Eva Green had originally snagged the role, but pulled out last minute.

Diane has been quietly keeping busy with overseas filming, so this move comes as no surprise.  The movie is set to begin filming this spring. Lea Seydoux and Gerard Depardieu make up the rest of the cast.

Film Critic Slams Most Of Hollywood

 
 Film Critic Slams Most Of Hollywood

British film critic David Thomson basically went NUTS on Hollywood this morning. The ­Editor of The Biographical Dictionary Of Film ripped apart almost every A-lister I can think of during an interview with The Daily Mail. Here is just a sample of what he had to say about today’s top celebs:
  • HUGH JACKMAN: He is hot (I suppose). Now, he just needs to be interesting.
  • KEIRA KNIGHTLEY: She is ­astonishingly beautiful. But Keira is about as interesting as a creme brulée where too much refrigeration has killed flavor with ice burn. She is still more credible as a faintly animated photographer’s model than as an actress.
  • BEN AFFLECK: On one hand I have always had a soft spot for Affleck. But my other view is that he is boring, ­complacent and criminally lucky to have got away with everything so far.
  • BRAD PITT: Hardly anything he touches now is less than ‘precious’ and ‘awesome’ — it can’t be long before he begins to look very tired.
  • HILARY SWANK: In nearly everything she has done, she has been pretty, dull, ordinary and incapable of lifting the film clear of a sanctimonious mud.
  • JENNIFER ANISTON: She’s in her 40s now and her £5 ­million-a-movie career ­cannot go on for much longer. But rather in the manner of Doris Day, while one can make gentle fun of Jennifer Aniston, it’s hard to dislike her.
  • DREW BARRYMORE: I can’t help finding it shocking, as well as startling, that Drew Barrymore was born so recently (in 1975), and yet seems to have been here, and a problem, for so long.
  • GEORGE CLOONEY: It’s clear, as he approaches 50, that George Clooney is the most liked actor in U.S. ­pictures. And it is also clear that he knows it.
  • MATT DAMON: What’s most interesting about Damon is the very lack of good looks — and the feeling of a squashed and rebuilt face.

Lady Gaga Is This Year’s Most Charitable Celebrity

 Lady Gaga Is This Year’s Most Charitable Celebrity

When Lady Gaga is not busy shopping without pants, she’s out somewhere doing something good for the world. In a poll by Dosomething.org asking which celebrity had done the most for charity this year, Lady Gaga won.
The Poker Face hitmaker’s outspoken support for gay rights and her tireless efforts in the campaign for the repeal of the U.S. military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy placed her at number one, just ahead of Keys, who led the charge against HIV and AIDS in 2010.
Taylor Swift, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, Matt Damon and Justin Bieber were also in the top 10. But where’s Angelina Jolie?

Are you happy that Lady Gaga won the poll or would you have voted for a different celebrity? I have to say that she grows on me more with every passing day. She works hard at her craft, she appreciates her fans and she gives back. What’s not to like?

Hot New Trailer: ‘Glee’ Star Dianna Agron In ‘I Am Number Four’




 Hot New Trailer: ‘Glee’ Star Dianna Agron In ‘I Am Number Four’

Something tells me ‘Glee’ star Dianna Agron won’t be on TV much longer if she can help it ;) . Not only was she in ‘The Romantics’ (starring Katie Holmes) and ‘Burlesque’ (starring Christina Aguilera and Cher), but now she’s one of the stars of the highly-anticipated movie ‘I Am Number Four.’

Dianna stars along with Teresa Palmer, Alex Pettyfer, and Timothy Olyphant. This movie is based on the book by Pittacus Lore (a.k.a. infamous ‘A Million Little Pieces’ writer James Frey and Jobie Hughes).

Look interesting?

Yes, the ring I gave Crystal is an engagement ring. I didn’t mean to make a mystery out of it. A very merry Christmas to all.
According to People, this will be Hef’s third marriage. Congratulations to Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris!

Kelly Bensimon Barely Escapes Accident In Blizzard

 
 Kelly Bensimon Barely Escapes Accident In Blizzard

The East Coast was hit HARD last night. Sure, it’s beautiful to watch from the comforts of your home, but it’s never safe to drive during a blizzard. ‘Real Housewives of NY’ star Kelly Bensimon barely escaped crashing on the Long Island Expressway last night while heading home.

She tweeted about spinning out of control.
During the blizzard, we spun out in my Mercedes on the LIE. I was petrified. It was like skating not driving. I need a #safe car
And here I thought Mercedes were one of the safest cars on the market! Perhaps Kelly Bensimon should invest in some snow tires.

Thank goodness everything worked out and she got home safely.

Holly Madison Says 130 Pounds Is “Fat”

 
 Holly Madison Says 130 Pounds Is “Fat”

Holly Madison recently commented that her scale is much more accurate than the one at her ‘Peepshow’ venue. In fact, it looks like there is a 20 pound difference! One of those puppies is way off.

The way Holly Madison ended her thought upset several of her fans. She used the hashtag #ImStayingFat which basically implies that 130 pounds is overweight.


After several of her fans lashed out, she quickly posted that she just meant the scale was really off. What do you think about her comment? Do you find it insensitive? Or do you believe Holly Madison was just joking?

Ever Imre… that’s an unusual name ;) . What do you think?

Demi Lovato Allowed To Leave Rehab On Christmas

 
 Demi Lovato Allowed To Leave Rehab On Christmas

Demi Lovato didn’t spend Christmas at her unnamed rehabilitation center. The Disney Star – who is currently dealing with  “emotional and physical issues” – was released for the day and brought to her family’s home to spend the holiday with loved ones.

A source told People Magazine that Christmas is Demi’s favorite holiday and it was very important for her to go home for the day.
“It is the most important holiday to her,” the source says.
Demi Lovato has been in treatment since late October. The last few months have been particularly trying. Between Demi Lovato’s naked pictures, sex tape scandal and lawsuit payout to a former dancer, it’s understandable to see 2010 was a trying year.
