Ellen Barkin Bites Back

From todays Page Six ~

ELLEN Barkin may soon get the ultimate comeuppance on Ron Perelman - by trashing her billionaire ex-hubby in a thinly disguised HBO series based on her life as a sizzling cougar after their bitter divorce.

Barkin will executive-produce and star in a half-hour pilot being scripted for an untitled show about a woman, "famous for her high-profile marriage, who divorces and re-enters the singles market," according to Variety.

"You have this character in her early 50s whose life explodes suddenly," Shauna Cross, who's writing the script, told the trade paper. "Her nerve and life experience allows her to tell the world to go screw itself, and they love her for it."

Barkin, 54, pocketed $60 million from Perelman, 66, who slapped her with divorce papers in 2006, then booted her from his East 63rd Street mansion. But she quickly struck back. The "Sea of Love" hottie auctioned off more than 100 jewels he'd lavished on her, netting an additional $20.3 million.

And when she bumped into Perelman at the Waverly Inn with new girlfriend Anna Chapman, Barkin threw a glass of water in his face and hissed at Chapman: "I feel sorry for you that you have to [bleep] him tonight."

"There's so much source material to work with," an acquaintance of the couple laughed. "The first week, Ellen could be out on the sidewalk in her socks screaming as the movers are loading up her things. In the second week, she could soak Ron with water."

Perelman had no comment. Barkin's representative confirmed the pilot but offered no further details.

Happy Friday!

Don't miss the lucite.

you're in sweatpants and cashmere,
but in England you bust out your couture."

Jessica Has Gone Country And It Ain't Good

Poor lil' Jessica Simpson. She's gone from having 'it all', to having herself a big fat bowl of chili at Radio 99.9 Kiss Country's Annual Chili Cookoff in Pembroke Pines, Florida yesterday.

No one could have pulled off this outfit she picked out at the local Walmart. Whenever Jess brings out the highwaists, it's never pretty. Remember these?

She is ultra-tranny looking here, though no tranny would be caught dead in those jeans.

She's a little bit country, she's a little bit rock and roll. And she's a whole lotta swollen.

This picture makes my life.

Oh ya, ROCK that Chili Party. You Rock it girl.

Not Sure If This Helps Their Cause Or Not

This years token Valentine movie is "He's Just Not That Into You." The three male leads, Justin Long, Bradley Cooper and ah ya, Kevin Connolly, bring you this promo video to entice us, hoping they will get us flocking to the theatres. cough Nice Try cough good effort.

You poor suckers who are coerced into seeing this thing. I feel for you. Bradley Cooper is a cutie, USUALLY, wtf has he done? He's gone and mediocre'd himself. Oh ya, Jennifer yawn Aniston is in this too. Practically everyone that was available in Hollywood makes a cameo in this piece... but really do we want to give more money to the 'He's Just Not Into You Guy'? Greg what's his face.... I know I don't.

Wanna Catch Obama's Inauguration? It'll Cost Ya

Interest in President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration is running so high that one ticket broker is asking $20,095 for a single ticket.

Entry to the biggest event in Washington is free if your congressman or senator grants your request, but with demand outpacing supply a traditional giveaway has turned into a thriving online marketplace.

Legitimate ticket brokers -- the same companies that peddle tickets to rock concerts and NASCAR races -- are selling tickets to the swearing-in of Barack Obama for thousands of dollars, even for standing-room areas on the National Mall.

Barack Obama's inauguration team announced a huge lineup of talent -- assembled in less than two weeks -- that will perform at an opening celebration at the Lincoln Memorial on Sunday, in a kickoff heavy in its mix of history and leading artists.

The roster includes a cross-section of legends and luminaries: U2, Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Sheryl Crow, Garth Brooks, Shakira, John Mellancamp, Renee Fleming, Josh Groban, Herbie Hancock, Usher, James Taylor,, Mary J. Blige, John Legend, Heather Headley and Jennifer Nettles.

In addition, Jamie Foxx, Martin Luther King III, Queen Latifah and Denzel Washington will read historical passages, with the Rev. Gene Robinson delivering the invocation.

He Said It

“My major motivation is to be closer to family. My brother is there, my mother is there. We’re hoping to break ground in March, and it will be completed right around the time we’re finishing the last season of Lost, in March 2010. I really miss that kind of wide-open space, and there’s a big part of me that wants the kids to live in that mountain air.”

She Said It

"The fashion is just unbelievable. You can watch our show on mute and be entertained. Just being here, walking around, you pick it up really quickly. In New York, you put on skinny jeans and riding boots and a leather coat and handbag, and you take on that posture and character. It becomes very natural."

discussing the killer clothes on Gossip Girl

Blake is Vogue's February covergirl. Personally, I don't believe she deserves the cover of Vogue. Her voice makes the hair on my arms stand up. Excruciating. Not to mention her mug also ruined my December issue of W Mag. Get back to models please. Not 'today's flavour' of tv star. Ah I digress.

Seraphina! Really? With A ph?

Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck. That's what they named her.

Seraphina joins big sister Violet in the Affleck clan. Jennifer Garner and Ben checked in and had their new baby on January 6th in Los Angeles, and have just today gone public with her name. Let's hope they end up calling her Sera. I'm not a big fan of the name. It sounds like a princess from a Barbie dvd. There was such promise too, Violet is such a great name.

Jenny From Gossip Girl Goes Viral

This clip of Taylor Momsen deeking out the paps as she leaves the gym has hit the web with a vengeance today. I mean, Gossip Girl is popular and all, but Taylor doesn't command this type of mayhem. Not that she doesn't enjoy all the attention.

Great move by Nike to take their ad to the web..... we just fwd commercials with our DVR's anyways. Ad execs have to get creative. Kudos.

The Buffalo Club Was Brimming

A little pre-party for Sunday nights Golden Globes took place last night at The Buffalo Club. A ton of A-list celebs turned up, including Ashton and Demi. If only I could get 10 minutes alone with her dermatologist and surgeon. Demi at 46 looks fresh and 10 years younger than Lindsay Lohan. Whom I'm sure, was not invited.

I'm not sure why Reese and Jake feel they need to arrive and leave separately still. Who do they think they are? Gwyneth?

Dexter Makes Us Go Ew, But Not For Why You Think

I will never look at these two the same again. I can see why they kept their dating under wraps.

It's shouldn't be, but it is. Weird.

Dexter and his sister have gotten hitched!

But fear not, Dexter fans, the nuptials went down in real life, not on the hit Showtime series. (The show isn't that twisted.)

Michael C. Hall's rep confirms to that the Golden Globe-nominated actor eloped on New Year's Eve with Jennifer Carpenter, who plays Dexter's tough-talking sister Deb.

"They were married outdoors in Big Sur, California," Craig Bankey tells us. Jennifer carried a bouquet of white roses with her grandfather's wedding band attached.

Michael, 37, and Jennifer, 29, who have been secretly dating for about a year and a half, will make their first public appearance together on the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton. The series is up for multiple awards, including Best Actor in a Drama for Michael.

A-Rod Can't Keep The Cougs Off

Alex Rodriguez flew into Parrot Cay to ring in the New Year with Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Bruce Willis and Donna Karan. While on the island, a spy says the slugger got "very close to [Karan] who only had eyes for him and followed him around all night on New Year's Eve." But apparently A-Rod is "still hung up on Madonna" and refused Karan's advances.

Now Brad's On The Defensive

No photoshop'ing here. Brad Pitt is looking rather leathery on the February cover of W Magazine. Robert Redford reincarnated.

Jennifer Aniston called Angelina "uncool" on the December cover of Vogue. Now W has Brad talking back and he plays it down, just as a "perfect gentleman" would. Just as Brad wants to be perceived.

“Listen, man, Jen is a sweetheart. I think she got dragged into that one, and then there’s a second round to all of that Angie versus Jen. It’s so created.”

And then he says this very contradictory quote: “What people don’t understand is that we filmed Mr. & Mrs. Smith for a year. We were still filming after Jen and I split up. Even then it doesn’t mean that there was some kind of dastardly affair. There wasn’t. I’m very proud of the way that it was handled. It was respectful. The film will mean something to our kids. It will, that’s all.”

Huh? Didn't have affair during filming, but the film will be meaningful for their children? Talking in circles. Pft.

Unintentional Kid Joke

So today I took my daughter to the dentist for a check-up. While we wait, she makes friends with another little girl named Megan.

First they exchange names, then Megan exclaims, "I'm 5 years old. I turned five in Mexico!" My daughter replies, "Really?! I'm five too!!! I turned five in August!"

He Said It

"I learned a really good lesson… I understand the spin of it. I’ve lived 25 years of this kind of stuff. Certainly things were also twisted and misrepresented. I just take responsibility for it… good lessons. I’m here to entertain people. Certain issues and things… have a time and a place and proper environment. When I’m promoting films… that’s what I want to talk about."

She Said It

“When I was a teenager, like, when I turned 16, I loved boys. That was just my thing. My mom was like, ‘Oh boy, she loves boys!’ I always loved boys. I still love boys. First of all, I always had a boyfriend. This is the first time I’ve been single since I was 16!”

I Can't Believe He's Not A Pro Athlete

Alyssa Milano likes her sporting events. And the men that play in them. So that's why today's engagement announcement comes as a bit of a surprise. Let's hope her new man doesn't have season's tickets.

Milano, 36, will marry David Bugliari, an agent at the Creative Arts Agency. The couple have been dating for more than a year.

No further information about their nuptials – including a wedding date – has been announced.

Milano was previously married to Cinjun Tate. The couple split in 1999.

I Don't Like It, You Can't Make Me

The Boyfriend Jean. Trying to take the reins from The Skinny and The Straight. It must be stopped. I'm not convinced.

Here's Kate Walsh rocking a pair today in Beverly Hills. She looks great in this photo, where you don't see here below the waist. The recently separated and latest 'blind item' darling, is one very funny lady. Let's hope she can end up starring on a show worth watching.

And we'll give her props for driving a Prius.

Meet Me On The Beach

Bff's Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox spent New Years Eve in Cabo. Just as always. No Mayer in sight, and though David Arquette was with the pair, he was not at the beach on Friday.

If I spent the amount of time Jen spends in the sun, I'd be one of those leather ladies. The kind my husband fears I will one day become. How does her skin stay that way? Is it genes? It certainly isn't a high SPF. Courtney shys from the sun and swears by Kinerase and daily sunscreen to avoid any more freckles.

Not Funny

Terrible news.

Jett Travolta, the 16-year-old son of actor John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston, died Friday while on vacation with his family in the Bahamas.

Jett had suffered a seizure at his family's vacation home at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island, said Michael Ossi, a lawyer for the family, in a statement through Travolta's rep.

The teen hit his head in a bathtub Friday morning and was declared dead at Rand Memorial Hospital, police spokeswoman Loretta Mackey told the Associated Press.

According to police, a caretaker had found Jett unconscious in the bathroom around 10 a.m. An autopsy is being pursued to determine the exact cause of death.

Jett, who is the only son of Travolta, 54, and Preston, 46, had a history of seizures, according to Ossi. The couple also have a daughter, Ella Bleu, 8.
