This is what Helena Bonham Carter (Miss Carter if you’re nasty) wore to go shopping for a new pair of glasses in London the other day: a steampunk warrior princess outfit, candy bead necklace, and an oversized bow clipped into wild wavy hair.

I suppose this is what Zooey Deschanel thinks is charmingly incognito. But it’s a bit too “Where In The World Is Carmen San Diego” for my taste. Zooey was photographed coming out of pilates class, and if you’ll notice, she’s still managed to wear her signature black tights.
The Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes split may not result in a nasty court fight after all. TMZ says lawyers from both sides have begun “calm” settlement talks on custody of Suri and child support, among other things.

Rihanna opens up in the August 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
On love: “I don’t know if there’s something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life!” she laughs. “I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it’s not living up to its full potential right now.”

The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again.”

Of course those of us in the know said their relationship was all over but the crying months ago. They have two young children together and the custody battle is about to begin, so strap on your typecasting and phone Tim Burton!
Hollywood Hiccups has the inside track on the story: “Vanessa is furious and ready for a fight, she wants Johnny to spend as little time as possible with the children. She does not want her children exposed to any of his new girlfriends. The children are already distraught at the loss of their father.” Read more…
Way back in 1987, before advanced sarcasm and leave-in conditioner were invented, I fell hard for my first celebrity crush: Jon Bon Jovi. Thanks to a publication called Tiger Beat — which is nothing more than Penthouse for girls in headgear — I knew Jon’s full name (John Francis Bongiovi, Jr.), hometown (Sayreville, New Jersey), and hair length (14 inches). I also amassed several hundred tear-out posters of him that I lovingly plastered all over my school locker, bedroom walls, and regional highway overpasses. These were tearjerking pictures of Jon Bon posing in neon pantyhose, crossing his arms, and ferociously pouting because he obviously had yet to find the perfect, mildly-pubescent, Hello Kitty connoisseur of his dreams.
