Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
- Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jamie Kennedy are getting married. He proposed to the actress while onstage at the Laugh Factory in Long Beach, CA. [PopEater] — I guess he finally succumbed to all that pressure she was putting on him.
- Daniel Radcliffe has revealed he’s dating his Equus co-star Laura O’Toole. [OK!]
- K-Fed has plans to show off his live-in girlfriend on his new reality show. [E! Online] — As if the world still cares about K-Fed.
Chris Brown—you know, the guy who got his wrist slapped for beating the crap out of Rihanna earlier this year — just released a video on his You Tube page where he apologizes for “the incident,” as he calls it.
He makes lots of references to his mom and his spiritual teachers and how he grew up in a home with domestic violence. Sorry, but it’s still too little, too late, for me. What about you? Keep reading »
Some people applaud the triple threat, the complete entertainer who dances, sings, and acts (to some extent). But Nia Long makes a great argument to the contrary, and she goes after Beyonce in the process. Nia told Pride magazine that singers should sing and rappers should rap, and casting should reflect talent, not box office-draw. “I didn’t see ‘Obsessed,’ so I can’t comment, but it’s just not about how talented you are anymore. It’s about, ‘How much box-office revenue will this person generate,’” the actress said. “When you see certain people — we won’t name names — they just don’t have the skill, and no one in their team has said, ‘You need acting classes.’” Nia does, however, commend Jamie Foxx for being able to sing and hone his acting craft.

Padma Lakshmi, the hot foodie we’ve come to love on “Top Chef,” is making the leap into a sitcom. Peacock and Universal Media Studios are creating a half-hour show, tentatively titled “Single Serving,” specifically for Lakshmi. It’ll follow her in the culinary world, and sounds a little bit like Courtney Cox’s character on Friends, maybe? Although she’s best known for playing host for the chef competition on Bravo, Lakshmi has dabbled in acting before. She’s had a role in “The Ten Commandments,” an ABC miniseries, as well as appearances in the full-length features “The Mistress of Spices,” “Boom” and “Glitter.” Oh, and who can forget her amazing performance in a Carl’s Jr ad? [Variety]
What do you think? Are glad Padma is branching out, or do you think she should get back in the kitchen? Keep reading »
Only Margaret Cho could make history as the first woman ever to grace the cover of Unzipped Magazine, the so-called magazine for men who love men. She appears on the cover along with porn star Ricky Sinz, in bondage gear. “Margaret Cho transcends sexual stereotypes,” said Dustin Tyner, Group Publisher for Unzipped Media. “The energy and sex appeal Margaret and Ricky bring to the article is amazing. The photos are electric, and we’re thrilled to have two iconic sexual adventurers on the cover of our ‘Hot Issue.’” Of course, Cho finds a way to make this somehow oddly funny and sexy at the same time. This is why Cho is my hero. [Unzipped] Keep reading »
In a bizarre move that makes me think Lindsay Lohan and the editors of Vogue suffer from amnesia and severe blindness, LiLo is on the August cover of Spanish Vogue in a Marilyn Monroe-inspired photo shoot. In the image, she dons a blond, Marilyn-ish wig, and on her dress is a ginormous black-and-white print of Marilyn’s face.
Sound familiar? Yep, it should. Last year, she did a photo shoot for New York where she recreated shot-for-shot Marilyn’s last images. Two expensive photo shoots later, I still fail to see any similarities between Monroe, the voluptuous ‘50s sex goddess turned American icon, and alarmingly-thin LiLo. Keep reading »
Celebrity stylist Jennifer Rade had been making like a fashion squirrel for months, collecting clothes for Angelina Jolie to wear while promoting her new flick, “Salt.” Jolie was scheduled for a fitting on Friday, but the night before, someone ganked three boxes full of designer pieces from Rade’s studio. We aren’t too surprised. I mean, clothes and jewels are expensive, and whoever took them now stands to make a hefty sum. Or they’ll just look fabulous? [NY Post]
Oddly, this crime reminded us of a few others. Keep reading »
