Star Couplings: Matthew McConaughey Spreads His Naked Bongo Playing Seed

  • Dude, guess who is about to become the coolest dad alive? Matthew McConaughey! The actor announced on his website, “My girlfriend Camila and I made a baby together … its 3 months growin’ in her womb and all looks healthy and lively so far.” Mmm, the way he put that is making me kind of hot and bothered. Anyway, obviously the kid has totally scored — think of all the free surfing, shirtless yoga, and bongo playing instruction! [TMZ]
  • Speaking of babies, cute couple Summer Phoenix and Casey Affleck are the parents of a new baby boy. The lil’ tyke joins brother Indiana, 3. Ten bucks says this kid isn’t going to be named something common, like Stanley. [Us Weekly]
  • Wackiest romance of the day: Naomi Campbell and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Rumors are flying that the twosome started dating after she interviewed the controversial socialist leader for GQ and he flirtatiously asked her to feel his muscles. Well, whatever gets you off I guess… [A Socialite's Life]
  • I would like to apologize for continuing to write about this train wreck, but it’s my duty. Last night Brit and Adnan were busted buying a home pregnancy test AND she was wearing what looked to be an engagement ring. Please, someone, anyone, find something funny to say about this. [DListed]

    Jenna Jameson Retires From Porn. Sniff.

    Big news in the porn world, ladies. Jenna Jameson, star of such films as Briana Loves Jenna and Blue Movie, announced at the Adult Video News Awards Ceremony in Las Vegas this weekend that she was retiring from porn, telling the crowd, “I will never spread my legs for this industry again.” I couldn’t really give a hoot, but what I absolutely love about this video of the event is A) Jenna’s whole Dorothy Gale in Oz romanticism on getting into porn at 18 and B) the absolutely ludicrous amount of nominees up for the award she’s presenting. Literally, there are 15 nominees for “Crossover Star Of the Year” — who didn’t get nominated? Also, what is a crossover star? Did one of these people — Lexington Steele, maybe? — make an appearance on Grey’s Anatomy or something? So confused. [YouTube] Keep reading »

    Star Couplings: Britney Headed To The Altar?

  • Britney Spears, who lost visitation with her kids indefinitely yesterday, visited a church with her pap boyfriend Adnan yesterday. People (i.e. us) are afraid she’s going to marry the dirt bag. Will the madness never end? [DListed and YouTube]
  • A French newspaper is reporting that President Nicholas Sarkozy might have married Carla Bruni in a super-secret ceremony. They’ve been dating for only a few months. Bon chance! [Yahoo! News]
  • So the Dallas Cowboys are out of the playoffs and fans are blaming Jessica Simpson because she took quarterback Tony Romo to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico a few days before the game. How is that her problem again? [DListed]
  • In Andrew Morton’s highly controversial Tom Cruise bio, the writer says that Cruise initially hit on Jennifer Garner before meeting Katie Holmes. You mean he offered her an audition to play the role of his wife and baby mama in the reality TV show that is his life? Interesting. [DListed]

    Star Couplings: It’s Raining Babies!

  • Mazel tov shout outs to Christina Aguilera (and hubby Jordan Bratman) and Nicole Richie (and boyfriend Joel Madden), both of whom gave birth this weekend. Christina named her son Max Liron (which roughly translates to “My Greatest Song” in Hebrew), while Nicole and Joel came up with the totally awesome name of Harlow Winter Kate for their new daughter. [Us Weekly]
  • We didn’t even know they were dating, but apparently Australian indie rocker Ben Lee is engaged to our ’80s girl crush Ione Skye — he is best known for dating actress Claire Danes, while she was married to Ad Rock from the Beastie Boys and starred as Diane Court in Say Anything. So cute! [Oh No They Didn't]
  • So the British tab News of the World is saying that Britney is totally in love with that pap and is converting to Islam for him. You know what y’all? If this is true, we are so not even slightly surprised. [DListed]
  • This is how not true that rumor about Jennifer Aniston and Jason Lewis was — she was spotted on a date this weekend with David Spade. WTF? He’s not even funny! [Perez Hilton]

    More disappointment, after the jump… Keep reading »

    Sacha Baron Cohen Gets Padded Down

    We loved Sweeney Todd: the costumes were amazing, the art direction was impeccable, Helena Bonham Carter made up for her home-wrecking past, and Johnny Depp stole our bloody hearts — oh, and did we mention that Sacha Baron Cohen, who played Signor Adolfo Pirelli in the film, made us gasp? Sure, he was the film’s comedic cornerstone, but what really left our mouths agape was the impression his rather tight bodysuit made — was that thing padded or is it true what they say about exceptionally tall men with huge feet? Luckily, writer Kathleen Tracy, who’s penned the Cohen biography Sacha Baron Cohen: From Cambridge to Kazakhstan, answered the question for us. It seems Cohen did get a little help in the package department and that the additional, err, girth, was, in fact, his own creative touch. But still, don’t assume that Cohen doesn’t leave an impression on his own. Just ask his Borat co-star Ken Davitian. It seems that during the film’s infamous nude-wrestling scene, “the apparent adrenaline rush to survive under Davitian’s ample weight caused an awkward surge of blood toward one of Cohen’s extremities.” That explains why Cohen got a forgiving fig leaf covering his nether-regions, while Davitian did not. We’ll be the first to say we are totally disappointed. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
