2009 Claims Another From Hollywood: RIP Brittany Murphy


Brittany Murphy died of cardiac arrest early Sunday morning, after her mother had found her unconscious in the shower, according to a report by TMZ. The actress was only 32.

It is reported that a call went out to 911 from Murphy's Los Angeles home at 8 a.m. Attempts to revive her were not successful. A spokesperson for Cedars Sinai Medical Center confirmed to PEOPLE that Murphy died at the facility Sunday at 10:04 a.m.

The actress's rep, Nicole Perna, said in a statement Sunday afternoon, "In this time of sadness, the family thanks you for your love and support. It is their wish that you respect their privacy."

In addition to The White Hotel and Clueless, the Atlanta-born Murphy costarred in 8 Mile with Eminem, and Girl, Interrupted. Her first Hollywood job, at age 14, was as the star of the series Drexel's Class.

In May of 2007, she married her White Hotel director, Simon Monjack.

Sad sad. RIP Brittany.

Fang-Freakin'-Tastic Opening For New Moon


TWILIGHT sequel NEW MOON has shot to the top of the U.S. box office, sucking the competition dry and earning a staggering $140.7 million US in its opening week of release.

The vampire adventure achieved the third highest American debut of all time - taking $258.8 million worldwide, after opening in 26 countries. The top two earners to date are The Dark Knight and Spider Man 3.


Finally Some Good News


The almighty Opes says she's calling it a day after her contract runs out, September 9th, 2011. For me, this is not soon enough. I feel she jumped the shark at least 5 years ago.

Oprah is retiring and I'm as excited as she was here on that fateful afternoon with Tom Cruise-crazy.

That's right.... I'm giddy.

Sadly, Oprah will undoubtably start another talk show on her very own network... OWN. Winfrey will premiere the Oprah Winfrey Network, a partnership with Discovery Communications, in January 2011.

Now don't hate just because I'm not an Oprah fan. I mean, I get it if you are, but I'm over it.

Opes better come up with one deadly final "Favorite Things' episode. I always tune in to see people losing their sh!t over winning free stuff. It's a Do Not Miss.

Martha Stewart Is On A Roll




Last week Martha Stewart just happened to mention she didn't think Rachael Ray should call herself a 'cook'. And last night she gives us this zinger about that annoyance, Sarah Palin. Oh Martha, you are winning me over more and more.


Lindsay Lohan's Design Career: Going Going GONE


Well, let's be honest.... what design career? Ungaro made a monumental mistake and they are finally waking up and smelling the coke dust. At one time you might say Lindsay was a hot mess. Now, she's just a mess.

From Page Six:

In September, CEO Mounir Moufarrige announced that Lohan had been brought on to provide an "electric shock" to the aging fashion house. The move, widely viewed as a publicity stunt, was so controversial that head designer Esteban Cortazar resigned earlier in the summer rather than work with a celebrity adviser.

Cortazar was proved correct in October, when critics in Paris savaged the collection and Lohan's contributions as a laughingstock. In one of the nicer reviews, WWD noted Lohan's nipple-baring outfits, covered with hearts, were "cheesy and dated . . . an embarrassment."


Now, Page Six has learned that Ungaro's chairman, Asim Abdullah, is locked in a fierce battle with Moufarrige over Lohan's future role at the company.

"Asim wants her out now," a fashion insider who has seen e-mails between the two executives tells Page Six. "Department stores in the States have already told him they won't be picking up the line if Lohan remains a collaborator, so it's a serious issue."

The problem, says our source, is that "Mounir wants to keep her on because it was his idea to hire her in the first place. He's trying to save face."

The terms of Lohan's multiyear contract were not disclosed, though it is said to be worth seven figures.

Earlier this month, Ungaro himself, who hasn't had any contact with the house that bears his name since leaving in 2005, said of Lohan's debut collection, "I am furious, but I can't do anything about it," adding that the label "is in the process of losing its soul."

Reached for comment, a rep for Abdullah said of the rift between the execs, "Such an insinuation is totally absurd."

Pee Wee Does Details



Paul Reubens, aka Pee Wee Herman, the 57-year-old actor, best known for embodying the oddball man-child with the puppet friends (and also for two tawdry scrapes with the law), is about to don the skinny suit again to perform as Pee-wee for the first time in 19 years. Starting in early January in Los Angeles, Reubens will star in an elaborate live show in which Pee-wee yearns to fly, gets his wish, and then gives it away.

The November issue of DETAILS Magazine hits stands next week and we discover how Paul Reubens will prove to Hollywood that Pee-wee can still pack a house.

"It's a drag to have tabloid baggage. It's weird to have your career be a footnote to that, especially when you love what you do." But he's over it, he says. "I'm not giving people that power anymore."

I'm excited for Pee-wee's return to the big top. Who's with me?

Guess Who?

Why You Shouldn't Twitter Your Whereabouts Every Single Minute Of Your Life


Kourtney Kardashian, yes the pregnant one, had her home burglarized last night. This got me to thinking... these celebrities whom feel they must tweet their every move.... aren't they putting themselves at major risk of being robbed, followed, or otherwise? Things like, " oh hey @KimKardashian, it's me @KourtneyKash, i'm leaving right now for Vegas. back on sunday nite. come meet me!"

Law enforcement tells TMZ Kourtney returned to her Calabasas townhome Saturday night at about 8:30 PM and discovered the break-in.

We're told hundreds of thousands of dollars of jewelry was reportedly taken. The home is in a gated community.

The L.A. County Sheriff's Department responded and they are on scene.

We're also told among the items missing -- Kourtney's Cartier watch worth around $30,000, an expensive Rolex owned by her boyfriend, multiple diamonds including diamond hoops. And, worst of all, she's missing some vintage jewelry her dad, Robert Kardashian, left her.

We're told Kourtney had left with her boyfriend at around 7 PM for dinner, returned and discovered the break-in. They found many of the drawers open.

Drive A Drunk Celebrity

There's a business opportunity out there. Money to be made People! Hollywood needs a 'cool' taxi company so they can get home swiftly and safely and somewhat styley without the chance of an ankle bracelet with house arrest in their future.

Last night yet another tipsy celebutard got caught behind the wheel. This time it's Stephanie Pratt from The Hills.

"It was your basic DUI. Our traffic officers driving down the street spotted her and pulled her over," Sgt. Sal Ogaz tells PEOPLE. "She was cooperative and there were no issues with her arrest."

Police records show Pratt, 23, was arrested at 3:45 a.m., charged with a misdemeanor, and was transferred to the Van Nuys Jail for booking, where she was released around 10:30 a.m on $5000 bail.


Earlier in the evening, Pratt was at Holly Montag's birthday party at Empire, an L.A. nightclub. At 11 p.m. she Tweeted: "its my sissy @hollymontags bday party! just finished dinner and going to Empire but im pretty tired aka yes i am the party pooper :("


I guess you could say her night started out bad, and ended even worse.

Poor Conan's Nogan!

Last week during a live taping, Conan O'Brien really smoked his head on the hard studio floor. He was filming a stunt with Teri Hatcher in which the pair were in a foot race outside the studio in the rain and when they hit the slick floor, he bailed. Now you can watch the wipeout in all its glory. They did not air the show that night, instead opting for a repeat broadcast.

She Said It

ARK Gala Dinner - Arrivals

“I can’t say my 30s were the easiest time. And I had thought my 20s were hard! … You know, that’s the worst mistake a woman can make, to think, Oh, I’m 32 and I’ve had two kids and I’ve worked since I was 16 and now it’s going to get easier. Because as soon as you think that, you’re doomed!
You’re absolutely doomed!”

Burt Reynolds Prefers An Altered State


Burt Reynolds is seeking treatment in a rehab center for an alleged addiction to painkillers and alcohol, after an accident at his home in Florida last month sparked fears of his mental state.

According to the National Enquirer (ahem), Burt Reynolds, 73, was admitted to hospital on 21 August (09) after he was found semi-conscious and covered in blood following a fall at his waterfront mansion in Hobe Sound.

"The houseman found Burt lying in a pool of blood. He'd fallen and was badly cut. The houseman drove him to the hospital. But this time, Burt was behaving strangely, and doctors were so concerned about his state of mind that they sent him to the county mental health facility in West Palm Beach."

Reynolds agreed to check straight into rehab after medics refused to discharge him unless he sought professional help for his alleged addictions at the nearby Hanley Center.

"He's been increasingly abusing booze and prescription drugs, mainly painkillers. There have been many times recently when he's been completely out of it, and twice in the last few months he's ended up at the ER (emergency room)....Burt wasn't happy about it, but he checked in, went through detox and then joined a regular 30-day rehab program."

RIP Patrick Swayze


2009 has taken another one.

Patrick Swayze lost his battle with pancreatic cancer today. He was 57.

Ya.... Take THAT Kanye West

I'm going to start calling him Kanye WEAK.

Anyhoo, this is about the most entertaining take on the whole Kanye / Taylor fiasco.

Salma & Her Mini-Me


Salma Hayak and little cutie Valentina did some shopping in Brentwood on Saturday.

Kanye Is A Douche


I know you've all seen it already, but I couldn't let the day go by without posting Kanye West making an ass of himself on last nights VMA's. He tried to ruin a 17 year old's moment just to get himself in the press today. Soon after possibly being escorted out, he posted an apology to Taylor Swift on his blog. Blah Blah Blah. I'm not even going to link to his site. He doesn't deserve it. He has issues.



Lady Gaga Vs. Eminem


At last nights MTV VMA's......
Who I say WHO had on the most makeup?
It's a tough call but I'm going with the male.

Britney In A Bikini Makes Me....



Seeing Britney Spears, at the Ritz Carlton in Marina Del Ray this weekend, makes me put down the potato chips, pour out my coke, and book an appointment at the gym for tomorrow. Shit. If she can look that good, I could be rockin' it. Has she really been working our that hard or did she just renew her Adderall prescription? Damn I'm way too lazy.

The September Issue


Anna Wintour, the legendary editor-in-chief of Vogue for twenty years, is the most powerful and polarizing figure in fashion. Hidden behind her trademark bob and sunglasses, she has never allowed anyone to scrutinize the inner workings of her magazine. Until now. With unprecedented access, filmmaker R.J. Cutler’s new film The September Issue does for fashion what he did for politics in The War Room, taking the viewer inside a world they only think they know.

Every August a record-breaking number of people can’t wait to get their hands on the September issue of Vogue. The 2007 issue was and remains the biggest ever, weighing over four pounds, selling thirteen million copies, and impacting the $300-billion global fashion industry more than any other single publication. An intimate, funny and surprising look at Anna Wintour and her team of larger-than-life editors as they create this must-have Bible of fashion, Cutler explores the untouchable glamour of Wintour’s Vogue to reveal the extraordinarily passionate people at its heart. He takes us behind the scenes at Fashion Week, to Europe, on shoots and reshoots, and into closed-door staff meetings, bearing witness to an arduous, entertaining, and sometimes emotionally demanding process. At the eye of this annual fashion hurricane is the two-decade relationship between Wintour and Grace Coddington, incomparable Creative Director and fashion genius. They are perfectly matched for the age-old conflict between creator and curator. Through them, we see close-up the delicate creative chemistry it takes to remain at the top of the ever-changing fashion field.

The September Issue will be released on August 28, 2009 in New York, with expansion to other cities on September 11, 2009.

Happy Friday!

The Crazy Has Left American Idol


Shame on you American Idol! How could you not bring back the crazy this season?!

Paula Abdul, via Twitter, announced last night that she was not renewing her contract with Idol. Twitter instantly lit up with people vowing to stop watching if they don't bring back everyone's favourite TV drunk. Do they actually think we tune in, week after week, to listen to horrible singers sing horrible songs? NO! We tune it to see what kind of crazy-talk Paula will bring. How can we go on without more moments like these ?

Speculation about Abdul’s future with the show grew rampant after manager David Sonenberg told the Los Angeles Times in July that FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment, the production companies behind Idol, had not given her a new contract three weeks before the ninth season was to start filming — and just days after Idol host Ryan Seacrest reportedly signed a three-year deal for 45 million.

“She’s worked really hard for them and it’s time for them to reciprocate,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “They need to come through or she’ll walk.”

The warning signs may have been there: Sonenberg spoke out against producers, calling them “rude and disrespectful” to Abdul for not having “stepped up,” but the judge not only felt under appreciated, she also believed she was underpaid.

“When everyone else [was] getting such big raises she was hurt,” a source close to the former Idol judge tells PEOPLE. “She did want to go back to the show, of course. She’s upset they didn’t give her what she deserved.”

According to a source close to the show, “FOX offered Abdul a raise, but it was much less than what she was asking for.” She asked for about $20 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and rejected a 30 percent raise — an eight-figure, multi-year deal.

Abdul’s announcement on her Twitter page — less than a week after FOX announced Kara DioGuardi was returning to the judges' table — blindsided producers and “took everyone by surprise,” adds the show source. But leaving Idol isn’t a complete loss for her professional career — there’s a chance she could move to another network.

“Paula is an exceptional piece of talent,” Paul Telegdy, NBC’s alternative programming executive, told reporters Wednesday at the Television Critics’ Association panel in Pasadena, Calif. “We have no specific plans for her but I read the breaking news [of her departure from Idol] and I wouldn’t rule anything out.”


Between you and I..... I actually think Paula will be back this season. I think this is her trying to get her contract signed. Show the producers that the fans want her and that AI needs her.

Never have I dedicated more photos to a single story.
That Paula. She just gives and gives.

Jessica Simpson Wants Us To Believe


On her first post-breakup magazine cover, Jessica Simpson talks to Glamour about work, relationships, body image and how she’s coping now for the magazines September issue, on newsstands August 11.

Jessica was photographed by Matthias Vriens-McGrath in Malibu, CA wearing Valentino, Gucci, Giambattista Valli, and her own Jessica Simpson Collection.


On relationships:

“I don’t regret anything I’ve gone through.... I don’t know what the future holds, but I hope that my life, as it is now, doesn’t change. I’m very happy and comfortable—it’s a great place to be in. If this article comes out and we’re not together, I’d still love [Tony], and he’d still be a huge part of who I am today.”

On her divorce:

“It was hard to imagine I would ever walk down the aisle again. It was like a death in the family: You go through the mourning stage, then the rebellion, and then all of a sudden you have to find life by yourself. Once you do that, you feel complete—and that’s the only time you can truly fall in love again, and give yourself over completely to another person.”

Mariah Ain't Got NOTHIN' On Eminem


Great Unicorns Batman!

Mariah Carey has always said, "Eminem who?". Though her latest video and single portray the real Slim Shady as an "Obsessed" fan, she has always maintained that Slim was a liar and that they have never spent time together. So why bother writing a song and making a video then Crazy?

So tonight Eminem fights back with a quick track of his own. The Warning. This serves as as warning to Mariah to STFU or admit to hooking up. This also serves as a warning to all you hoes who wanna date a rapper. Don't.

From the first word.... hilarious.



Call yourself burned Mariah. Mariah On Fiah! This is a sick track. Hands down it's a way fatter track than Mariah's, and that's probably the best reward.

So if Mariah dares to deny..... Eminen has threatened with photos. Oh I hope this isn't the end of the battle.

Baldwin owes about $1.2 million on two mortgages on the New York property and more than $1 million in taxes. He also has credit card debt, court papers showed.

Seth Rogen Thinks Entourage Sucks

I don't know.... tell me what you think after you've read on. I'm kind of disappointed in Seth. He could have taken the high road and said he thought the rip in the last episode was funny. Maybe he and Ellin have a past.... something more serious? Time will tell. Stay tuned for a rebuttal.

___________________________________________________

Funny People Los Angeles Premiere
The writers of Entourage went after Seth Rogen on Sunday nights episode, calling his “ugliness…oddly fascinating” in a debate over whether the actor could possibly tap a Katherine Heigl-type in real life.

When asked if he has checked out the episode by E!’s Daily 10, Rogen surprisingly responded:

“Yeah, those guys are assholes. I actually ran into Matt…(Kevin Dillon) in a Starbucks. And he’s like ‘you know, I’ve got to kind of apologize because apparently the guy who created our show doesn’t like you so much.’ And I said ‘well I have reason to believe because I think [showrunner] Doug Ellin is a moron from all I can understand so it makes sense he doesn’t like me.’ And I’ve kind of said some disparaging things about the show. Although in our defense, [producer] Mark Wahlberg called us misogynistic in an interview, so I think they kind of started that…It’s on. Luckily I never have and never plan on watching Entourage.”
