This past weekend, the Writer’s Guild held simultaneous awards shows on both the east and west coasts. Stars — I suppose the particularly writer-friendly stars — showed their appreciation by turning out in droves. And Zooey Deschanel, who filed for divorce earlier this year, encouraged the nerdy writers to make a pass at her. Joking during the opening of the west coast awards ceremony, Deschanel said, “Welcome to Nerd Prom. Male writers, you are so hot with your minds and plaid shirts. Hit on me.” Well, okay then. Check out Deschanel’s tartan gown — and all the rest — in the gallery above…

(Brown has also hinted that Rihanna appears on the upcoming remix of “Turn Up The Music.”) Rihanna has tweeted a number of messages that suggest she’s aware of the negative response the collaboration is garnering; “Go head talk shit…its all in da paper!!! Lemme grab my dick while ya sit on top!!!” she wrote late last week. Sigh. She can be dismissive of the criticism, but I am going to do my best not to be dismissive of her in mine. Keep reading »
Photobombs are so much more fun when they involve celebrities, especially when famous folks are on both ends of the explosion.
