Nothing Pretty About Jessica Simpson’s Hair & Makeup Bills

When I first heard that Jessica Simpson was slated to host “The Price of Beauty,” a show devoted to discussing “society’s scrutiny of women’s bodies,” I was intrigued. Simpson is certainly no stranger to the terrifying degrees to which the tabloid press will go to to call attention to the slightest amount of famous weight gain or loss, and so seemed uniquely suited for the job. Now comes news, however, that makes Sarah Palin‘s exorbitant bills look minute by comparison: It costs $25,000 per episode to get Simpson camera-ready! Apparently, the fees are associated with her hair and makeup team, and word on the street is they charge even more than J.Lo‘s people. (And you know that cost is steep.) Women’s relationships to beauty may be a great equalizer, but to a nation of ladies who can barely afford Supercuts at the moment, outrageous beauty bills are no way for a fallen star to ingratiate herself to the public. We certainly can’t relate. [Splash News Online] Keep reading »

Screech Is Conspicuously Absent From “Saved By The Bell” Reunion

Jimmy Fallon is going to be so pissed when he sees the newest issue of People magazine. After repeatedly begging asking to hold a reunion on his late night show, the cast of “Saved By The Bell” decided to come together on the cover of People. In all fairness, Mario Lopez confessed that People had the 20th anniversary reunion idea before Jimmy and has worked for over a year putting together a feature deserving of the mega-popular ’90s sitcom. And really, can you argue with A.C. Slater?

Even though it’s been 20 years since Zack Morris was “Saved By The Bell,” the entire cast looks as happy and oddly fresh-faced as they did back at Bayside High School. Except for everyone’s favorite geek—Screech. No, Dustin Diamond wasn’t late to the shoot. He was asked not to come. [People/NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Katie Holmes Offered Role In “Sex and the City 2″

With the mega success of the first “Sex and the City” movie, everybody in Hollywood probably wants a part in “Sex and the City 2.” But clearly only the chosen ones can have their dream come true. Rumor has it that a very lucky Katie Holmes is one of those selected. She has been approached to play “a really ballsy, high-powered company executive who tangles with Samantha” in the sequel. Holmes is doubtlessly crossing her fingers and toes that Tommy boy gives his stamp of approval. Because she and Victoria Beckham would have so much fun on set. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Christina Hendricks On What Makes “Mad Men” So Sexy

“There’s something in what you don’t see. There’s restraint. I’ve had people say to me, ‘My husband and I watch it and we always have sex afterwards.’ I think it’s really hot that some of the things it’s stirring up in people are very naughty things.”

Amy Winehouse’s Dad Makes A Record. Other Fame-Hungry Celebrity Parents.

It makes sense to me when children follow in their parent’s footsteps, but not so much when it’s the other way around. Amy Winehouse‘s dad, Mitch (pictured at left), is a taxi driver. But he’s started recording an album of Frank Sinatra covers, along with a sprinkling of his own songs. A source at The Sun says, “Mitch has been working on [the album] for a while now. Amy always credits her dad with getting her into singing. He loves music. He has a good voice and wants a go at turning professional.” [Contact Music]

So he thinks fame is hereditary? Here’s a round-up of other parents who’ve grabbed at their kiddie’s coat strings, thinking that because they passed on such incredible genes, they should have a shot at fame, too. Keep reading »
