I'm loving all of the James McAvoy and Keira Knightley goodness. The two posed for W Magazine and shared the cover in the subscriber's version of the mag. I'm not much into leather daddies but James looks hot and so does Keira.

Not Fired

Lauren Conrad has spoken out against rumors that she was fired from Teen Vogue. Earlier I posted a story about Teen Vogue and The Hills going their separate ways, but rumors started flying about the split was due to Lauren being fired. Not so, she says.

“No, no, it was a decision I made because I was kind of done. I’ve been doing it for about two years, so I’m kind of done.”

It's funny because I don't think she was fired either. I mean, you'd actually have to work and be employed by a company in order to be fired by them. Lauren never really worked for Teen Vogue. Sure she hung out in the closet and talked to Whitney, but worked? Yeah, no.


“I would refuse. There is no amount of money and I’ll tell you why: I can’t want you to succeed more than you do. And it’s obvious that she doesn’t want to succeed. I think of her right now as being in exile from the human race and she needs major, major help… There was a time that we were all marginally amused by it and then it just became a repugnant horror show. No, I wouldn’t even be remotely interested in [making her over].”
-Tim Gunn, talking about giving Britney a makeover. God I love him.


Nicole Richie gave birth to a baby girl yesterday. Harlow Winter Kate Madden was born weighing in at 6lbs 7oz at Cedars-Sinai hospital in L.A. Nicole and Joel Madden have already taken Harlow home.

Awe, I think Harlow Winter is a pretty name. I could do without the Kate, though.

Not to be outdone, Christina Aguilera has also given birth. No more info has been given out other than Christina and her husband Jordan Bratman are ecstatic. She has said before that she was expecting a boy.

And to round off the baby news (at least for this post) Courtney Thorne Smith and David Alan Grier's wife have both given birth. Christine Y. Kim (David's wife) gave birth to a baby girl on Thursday named Luisa Danbi Grier-Kim. Danbi actually means "Sweet Rain" in Korean.

And finally, Courtney Thorne Smith gave birth to a baby boy on Friday named Jacob Emerson Fishman. Courtney and her husband Roger Fishman are also ecstatic.

Congratulations all around!

According to TMZ, both Christina Aguielra and Nicole Richie are at the hospital and waiting to give birth. The singer and the socialite are both expecting boys and are both said to be at Cedars Sinai hospital in L.A. right now.

It would be really cute of the two of them gave birth together, in the same room, kind of like Joan Cusack and Julianne Moore in Nine Months. But you know both of those girls (more X-Tina than Nicole) have a full on squad to help them go through labor. Hell, Christina needs three or four people to help her wipe the sweat off of her face while re-applying the caked on make-up she never takes off.

P.S. - My neighbor is currently (for the 100th day in a row) playing that "No One" song by Alicia Keys. Someone, please let me borrow a gun. I swear I'll give it back.

ETA: Molly brings up a good point, who do you think will have the "weirder" baby name?


These chicks have the best life. They get paid to be filmed on a "reality" show, get to attend the best parties and get tons of free shit too. Ugh. Lauren attended the Kari Feinstein Winter Style Lounge where she scored a bunch of free stuff.

I do like her hair, though, it looks really cute on her. And her shoes. I want those flats.

Shauna Sand and her daughter walked for that Kitson show and I'm honestly surprised she didn't slap on a kiddie pair of clear Lucite plastic shoes on the poor kid. You know she wanted to, but her daughter had enough sense to protest.

Here's another pic of her plus Vida Guerra. I have no idea why any of these chicks are famous, actually. It's not like they're Coco.

I might actually go see Sweeney Todd again with a friend. It's worth a second viewing and all this Johnny Depp stuff has got me wanting some action.

Jenna Jameson's implant loving self walked for that Troy Kingdom show at Kitson in Hollywood yesterday. She does look healthier than she's looked in a couple of weeks, so I'm checking this off as an upgrade. I'm not even hating the gold nail polish. It looks pretty cute.

Adrianne Curry walked for the Troy Kingdom show at Kitson yesterday. I have to admit, even though she's not really modeling anymore, she the more famous of the ANTM girls. Too bad Tyra seems to have forgotten she exists.

Reese is on the cover of next month's Marie Claire looking simple and gorgeous and unlike Katherine Heigl's cover (see below), not photoshopped to death. But then again I'm biased. I've loved her since Freeway.

Katherine Heigl is on the cover of next month's Cosmopolitan magazine looking hot but obviously airbrushed. I hate the photoshopped to death look. Well, the dress is hot, nonetheless.

What is up with Jennifer Love Hewitt? Jennifer attended teh Diamond Information Center and InStyle luncheon yesterday and wore an outfit is beyond boring. And if she tried to "spice things up" with those shoes, she failed. Hard. Don't get me wrong, the drag queen in me loves most things sparkly, shiny and bright, but those shoes don't work. Also, her hair annoys me.

Emily Blunt poses for the cover and a spread in the February issue of GQ magazine. I think she's brilliant and she was hilarious in The Devil Wears Prada. At first I didn't approve because she wasn't like Emily in the book, but after watching the movie she totally changed my mind and made me love that character.

Is it kind of sad of me to think James McAvoy was kind of hot as a faun in The Chronicles of Narnia? Even with the hoovs you could totally tell there was hotness there. Sigh.

Keira Knightly and James McAvoy pose for the cover of Entertainment Weekly. Although I like Keira, she usually annoys me with her whining, but she looks gorgeous on the cover.

Here's the poster and trailer (below) for Uma Thruman's new movie, The Accidental Husband. It co-stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Colin Firth. The movie looks really cute and I'll probably see it (when it comes on HBO), but I hate that I basically saw the entire (predictable) movie in the trailer. Less is more, trailer cutter people.

Creepy Love

I know I'm late with this but it still baffles me so I'm posting. Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia put all of the rumors to rest by "declaring" their love for each other. The two were spotted while on vacation over the holidays visiting Hayden's family showing off their creepy love. I'm sorry, but he's 30. I get that some people that are 18 can date someone twelve years older and the relationship is perfect, but it creeps me out. It's like ew, he knew her when she was 16 and she wasn't that much different, was he digging her then too?

I know, this comes from a small place of jealousy because, hello! Milo's all kinds of gorgeous. But after this I just kind of find him creepy. It's not the age difference that bothers me so much as the fact that she's so young, know what I mean. I, being 24, have dated guys a lot older than me. But I think there's a world of difference between someone who's 18 and someone who's 24, even 21 for that matter.
