“Okay, I had a crush on Dad. Okay, more than a little crush on Dad. My other real crushes were Donny Osmond and Jean-Paul Belmondo… Can’t blame men for wanting him, and wouldn’t be surprised if Dad even mildly flirted back… Dad somewhat enjoyed being called gay. He said it made women want to prove the assertion wrong.”
—Jennifer Grant, the daughter of Cary Grant, writes about her pops in her new book Good Stuff: A Reminiscence of My Father. According to Jennifer, George Clooney is the only actor today who has her dad’s specific brand of charm. [People] Keep reading »
Another famous Kate has a wedding coming up: Kate Hudson is engaged! Kate announced this morning on “The Today Show” that she’s engaged to Matt Bellamy of Muse, by whom she is currently pregnant (and mush-brained). “Yes, I’m engaged,” Kate told Matt Lauer while promoting her new romantic comedy, “Something Borrowed.” “It just happened a week ago, I’m so glad you noticed. I haven’t really announced it and I felt like the announcing thing feels so silly, and I was just waiting for someone to notice.” Well, that’s one way to do it. Us common folk take out an announcement in the newspaper when we have an engagement, but I guess if you’re a celebrity, it’s easier to just announce it on a morning talk show. Anyway, congratulations, Kate Hudson! [Betty Confidential]

On Monday, after finding out that she’d been sentenced to 120 days in jail and 480 hours of community service, including a large chunk brandishing a broom at the Los Angeles County morgue, Lindsay Lohan rolled by “The Tonight Show” for an interview. The audience had been expecting Kristin Chenoweth, so when the much more scandaltastic LiLo appeared, they gave her a standing ovation. In the interview, which aired last night, Jay Leno asked her all about her recent woes. Lindsay said that her sentence was “shocking” and had “left me numb.”
But she also stressed that she sees this as merely a hurdle. Keep reading »
I screwed up royally recently.
My boyfriend Alex and I needed to get a signed lease to our landlady who was having some legal troubles. I left it in the lobby for her to pick up, but before she could, it disappeared. I called new management, but they said they didn’t have it either.
When Alex came home, I told him what happened. “You made a copy though, right?” he said.
Crap. “Uh, no,” I admitted. Keep reading »
Embarrassingly, the announcement of an “America’s Next Top Model” all-star season is the thing I am most excited about today. I will confess that I have seen every single episode of all 16 cycles (as has Amelia … sorry for outing you). It’s awful, I know. But it is like reality crack to me. The CW has confirmed that Cycle 17 will bring back models from previous seasons to compete again. Jumping up and down. Screaming. Clapping. Why hasn’t Tyra thought of this sooner? Here is my dream team of returning model hopefuls: Elyse Sewell (Cycle 1), Shandi Sullivan (Cycle 2), Toccara Jones (Cycle 3), Tiffany Richardson (Cycle 4 — the girl that Tyra went postal on), Lisa D’Amato (Cycle 5 — the drunk), Kim Stolz (Cycle 5), Jade Cole (Cycle 6), Isis King (Cycle 11), Allison Harvard (Cycle 12), Sundai Love (Cycle 13 — just because her name is amazing). Which “ANTM” contestants would you like to see compete again? Share your favorites in the comments. [NY Mag] Keep reading »
