Kelly Preston's Revolting Gift
Contactmusic.com ran this fascinating fact today:
The leopard dress worn by Kelly Preston to the Oscars was a Christmas gift to her from her husband John Travolta.
That dress put her close to the top of my worst dressed list, and led to my posting of the cartoon below. Travolta should be renamed John Revolta for his taste in clothes, if he picked that trash out.
Thanks to Pretty On The Outside.

Vanity Fair Pics Trickle In
All I can think is that all of Suzanne Somers' clothes were burned up in that house fire of hers, and this is all she could save from the flames. Poor lady. No one would loan her a dress to wear for the Oscars.
Good thing she was able to save the dyed-to-match shoes that went with it.

Pete Doherty Could Be in Trouble Again
Pete Doherty better watch his back from angry animal rights people after he allegedly threw a marijuana blunt into a penguin enclosure, and one of the penguins ate it.
Pete caused chaos at the Cotswold Wildlife Park, in Oxfordshire, when he threw what looked like a cannabis joint to the penguins.
The rocker - who has been treated for drug addiction - was showing off in front of Kate when he hurled the alleged joint into the pen.
One of the Humboldt penguins promptly swallowed it.
A source told The Sun: "Everyone knew he was smoking
grass. He was joking about getting the penguins stoned. He threw them his joint and it looked like one penguin gulped it down. It seemed very wobbly."
Last night (27.02.07), London Zoo's chief veterinary officer blasted Pete's antics.
Andrew Routh fumed: "Feeding a penguin cannabis could be fatal. It contains toxins that attack the nervous system and liver."
What a dumbass.Source

Cameron Regifts a Rolex
In Touch weekly
reports that Cameron Diaz gave Drew Barrymore a Rolex watch that she had originally intended to give then-boyfriend Justin Timberlake. The watch was purchased for $12,000 and is a vintage Oyster in 18 karat rose gold, is inscribed with the words 'I Love You'. It was supposed to a birthday gift for JT, but the two broke up before the big day. Cam did the next best thing and gave it to her best bud, Drew, who offered to buy the expensive bling, but Diaz gave it to her as a gift instead.
I wish I had friends like that!

Moakler and Barker Not a Couple
I have a very hard time making myself care about the state of the relationship between Shanna Moakler and Travis Barker. She is trashy, and he is boring, in spite of his tattoos and piercings. I forced myself to watch 5 minutes of their MTV show, where he barfed in the bathroom, and she couldn't get out of bed. Anyway, for the sake of people who do care, here's the news: They are not back together.
This, despite numerous reports to the contrary, and photos circulating of the two kissing in Las Vegas.
Don't expect me to write anything more about these two unless they kill each other, someone else, or rob a bank as Bonnie and Clyde.Source

Enquirer Runs Fake Dead Anna Nicole Photo
The National Enquirer titillated readers by running photos of, what look like, the dead Anna Nicole Smith in a body bag. It turns out the photos are a fake, and the Enquirer editors defends their actions by saying the photos are simply a recreation, and it's similar to the way a police sketch artist works.
"It's almost the way a sketch artist works. There were so many different layers of how to achieve it, I couldn't even begin to describe it to you."
When asked if he thought his magazine's methods resorting to Photoshop a bit cheap, he responded "I don't think so, because it's so realistic and there's so much news in the story," argues Enquirer editor in chief David Perel. (The article claims it was pneumonia, not a drug overdose, that killed Smith.) "If you had our images side-by-side with the actual photos, I don't know if you'd be able to tell them apart."
I say, cheap tactics to sell a rag.Source

Grey's Anatomy Cast PO'ed About Spin-Off
I guess the rest of the world heard about the new 'Grey's' spin-off
before the cast of the popular ABC drama did, because they are fuming mad.
“The rest of the cast seemed instantly resentful of [Walsh],” a source told Star. “They each thought they’d be the one chosen to get their own show, and now they’re giving Kate the cold shoulder.” The source adds that “Grey’s” star Ellen Pompeo “seemed particularly peeved because she felt that, as the star, she should have been consulted.”
In related news, Katherine Heigl has walked out of salary negotiations with 'Grey's' execs because she feels less monetarily appreciated than co-stars Sandra Oh and Isaiah Washington.Source

Anna Nicole Died of Pneumonia
The National Enquirer
is reporting that the preliminary findings in the investigation of Anna Nicole Smith's death indicate that the actress died of severe pneumonia. In addition, the prescription drugs she was taking made her condition worse and did play a role, though the toxicology reports have yet to come back.
Sources told The Enquirer that the painkillers Smith was taking masked the seriousness of her symptoms. Anna had been hospitalized after her son's death for pneumonia, and apparently either wasn't over the original bout, or had relapsed at the time of her death.

The Secret: Coming to a Town Near You
The NY Daily News' Ben Widdicombe is reporting on a new "nutty sect" that is making the rounds in Hollywood recruiting celebrities. Move over Scientology and Kabbalah, because "The Secret" is in town.
"The Secret" promises "a new era for humankind" through "the secret laws and principles of the universe." According to its Web site, this information popped into the head of blond Australian TV producer Rhonda Byrne in the spring of 2004.
At a pre-Oscars dinner for eventual Best Supporting Actress winner Jennifer Hudson, thrown by Stuart and Jane Weitzman at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel Friday, Secret "teacher" Lisa Nichols explained the philosophy to Emmy Rossum, Rebecca Gayheart and Eric Dane.
"They were abuzz about it and wanted to talk to the guru," another guest tells me. Andre Leon Talley, Rachel Roy and Damon Dash were also in the room.
An uncharacteristically credulous Oprah Winfrey has even had Nichols on her show to discuss the philosophy. Nichols writes for the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series, whose creator, Jack Canfield, is also a Secret teacher.
But this is "Junk Food for the Brain." The crackpot thesis behind the Secret is that you can alter reality - from finding a parking space to curing cancer to getting a BMW - through positive thinking. And there's a very "Da Vinci Code" back story, about a 5,000-year-old conspiracy to keep the public from learning it. But don't worry, because your boys Beethoven, Lincoln and Einstein were in on it and passed the knowledge along.
This sounds like the idea that actress Virginia Madsen was talking about several days ago, which she calls "The Law of Cupcakes"
, which is basically her name for positive thinking.

Mark Ruffalo Treats the Paps to Movie and Gifts
Certain celebs could learn a thing or two about quid pro quo from actor Mark Ruffalo, specifically in how to treat the press.
While many celebs go out of their way to antagonize the press, Mark Ruffalo had them eating out of his hand the other night. When bad weather kept his guests from attending Gotham magazine's screening of his new thriller, "Zodiac," Ruffalo invited reporters lingering outside in the cold to see the flick. He also passed out gift bags to the paparazzi. "When one photographer was late and missed the arrivals, Mark came back out so he could get his shot," our spy said. "Then, after the movie, he extended an invite for them to join him at the after-party at Cellar Bar in the Bryant Park Hotel. He was by far one of the nicest guys." Source

Wahlberg and Phoenix Were Original Gay Cowboys
Mark Wahlberg and Joaquin Phoenix were the original lead contenders for 'Brokeback Mountain', but Wahlberg admits he was glad when filmmaker Ang Lee passed him over, because he "was creeped out by the script."
Wahlberg explains, "I met with Ang Lee on that movie, I read 15 pages of the script and got a little creeped out. It was very graphic, descriptive - the spitting on the hand, getting ready to do the thing. I told Ang Lee, 'I like you, you're a talented guy, if you want to talk about it more...' Thankfully, he didn't."
Marky Mark admits that both he and Joaquin were uncomfortable with the male on male tent sex scenes. He is happy with how it all ultimately turned out, however.
He adds, "I didn't rush to see 'Brokeback,' it's just not my deal... Obviously, it was done in taste - look how it was received."Source

Paris Gets Towed
Paris Hilton just can't catch a break where her driving is concerned. Last night as the celebutard left a Virgin Megastore after a DVD run, she got pulled over for driving without her headlights on, and then had her $200,000 Bentley impounded and towed because she was driving on a suspended license.
Her rep, Elliot Mintz, was working overtime as usual, and told reporters that Paris had no idea the headlights had not come on, because the parking structure was brightly lit, and also didn't know about the suspended license.
That dude needs a raise.TMZ

Sarah Michelle.....Where Do I Start?
My poor, poor little Buffy doll, Sarah Michelle Gellar. What were you thinking, my dear? You opted to wear a brown paper sack to the Vanity Fair party, and did you know you were going to spark rampant pregnancy rumors by doing so? Site after site is speculating on the existence or not of a baby bump, and what you were attempting to hide. I think it's just a very unfortunate fashion choice myself, and hope that my little Buffy has learned a valuable lesson. Paper or plastic? Neither! Wear a real dress!

Beckham Gets Low-Balled at Auction
It looks as if even super-ripped studmuffin David Beckham won't be able to save the future of American soccer, by the looks of things at Elton John's post-Oscar bash. A private soccer lesson with the Brit soccer star was the lowest grossing item of the evening, going for a measly $70,000. P. Diddy bid $65k, but was outbid at the last moment by an unknown bidder.
Beckham wasn't present at the shindig, because salivating Hollywood femmes would surely have started an all out bidding war, had he been there.Source

Diddy's in Trouble With Johhny Law
Sean "P. Diddy" Combs is being investigated over an alleged incident of assault that took place at a post-Oscar party.
Gerard Rechnitzer, a real estate broker, was at Teddy's at the Roosevelt Hotel with his fiancee, and made a pitstop in the loo on his way out the door. When he returned, he saw his fiancee surrounded by six guys, including Diddy. He watched for about five minutes as the lady was chatted up by the rapper, and at the point that Diddy asked her to leave with him to go to a party he was having, Rechnitzer stepped in, saying he was leaving. Diddy persisted, and when the 5'7" Rechnitzer asked her again to leave, Diddy allegedly punched him in the jaw.
Rechnitzer dialed 911, but when the cops arrived Diddy was gone. An ambulance also arrived at the scene, but the victim declined to be treated. As many as five witnesses have come forward who saw the altercation.Source

Partygoer's Get More Than Good Food
Apparently a catering employee of world famous chef, Wolfgang Puck, forgot the first rule of restaurant workers: Employees must wash their hands before returning to work.
The employee has been diagnosed with acute Hepatitis A, and the health department has issued an "urgent warning" to all partygoers who have sampled Puck's wares at recent events. According to TMZ
, that star studded list includes names like Beyonce, Leo di Caprio's girlfriend Bar Rafaeli, and dozens of Sports Illustrated swimsuit models.
The health department's warning has strongly urged anyone who attended the SI party, or any of the 13 other events catered by Puck between Feb. 1- 20, to get an immune globulin shot by tomorrow to prevent illness.
When contacted, a rep from Puck's catering company would not tell TMZ which other events Puck catered, nor would they reveal how many other people may have been exposed to the illness. They did say, however, that no one who attended Sunday's Governor's Ball at the Academy Awards is at risk.

Janet Jackson to Star on Big Screen Again
Janet Jackson will be making a return to the big screen opposite Tyler Perry in 'Why Did I Get Married?', based on a play of the same name. The film revolves around a couple who go away with friends every winter to examine their marriage in a group setting, with one of the wives bringing along a sexy temptress who causes trouble.
Jackson's last screen outing was in 2000, in 'The Nutty Professor', with Eddie Murphy. She was also supposed to be in a movie last year and gained 60 pounds for the role, but the deal fell through, leaving Jackson a bit on the hefty side. She has bounced back wholeheartedly, and looks even better than before, if recent magazine layouts are to be believed.Source

The Real Reason for Barton/Adler Split
Janet Charlton reveals the real reason for Mischa Barton and Cisco Adler's split, and it had nothing to do with internet pics of Adler's saggy nutsack. Mischa was actually the dumpee, and it had to do with her hard partying and wild ways. Cisco had enough and gave Barton an ultimatum: "Clean it up or get lost."
Mischa is well known for her wild girls nights out and coming home trashed. Charlton reports that her excessive behavior caused personality changes - moodiness, crying jags, and paranoia. Cisco and some of Mischa's worried girlfriends got together and staged something like an intervention. They want her to clean up her act.
The quasi-intervention didn't stick, and Adler hit the road. Barton was photographed this week getting high in a friend's car while out driving around LA.Source

Hartnett's a Gentleman
Page Six reports on Josh Hartnett coming to the aid of a female bar patron in NY:
Lower East Side bar regular Josh Hartnett proved himself to be a stand-up citizen the other night. Hartnett and his pals closed down Essex Street watering hole Whiskey Ward, and as they were leaving at 4 a.m., "he stopped a guy from harassing a woman," said our source. "He was just helping her out." No punches were thrown - there were just some raised voices on the corner. A rep for Hartnett - who went to war in "Black Hawk Down" and solved a damsel's murder in "Black Dahlia" - had no comment.

Baby Watts-Schreiber Confirmed
After design house Escada let the cat out of the bag about Naomi Watts' pregnancy, boyfriend Liev Schreiber confirmed the news on Conan O'Brien's late night show.
O'Brien congratulated Schreiber on becoming a dad, and Schreiber responded, saying "Yes, I'm going to be a dad. Very exciting."
The baby daddy is trying to stay out of the name game, but puts his foot down on one point. The baby will not be named Liev. "It's an awful name," said Schreiber. "It's probably the most oft-mispronounced name in showbiz."
Well they could follow the celeb trend of naming the baby after food or a town. I kind of like the Hambone. Hambone Schreiber has a nice ring to it.Source

Jennifer Hudson Needs a Backbone
It seems Jennifer Hudson was at the mercy of her stylist, Vogue editor Andre Leon Tally, who is to blame for her much hated Oscar look. She had an alternative that she much preferred, but in a bit of a power struggle, gave in and wore the python bolero jacket and semi-shapeless brown dress that Tally had picked.
"Jennifer was kind of sponsored by Talley and Vogue," snitches a Page Six source. "Andre insisted she wear that hideous Oscar de la Renta dress with the awful, awful gold python bolero. "Jennifer really didn't want to, and so [noted celebrity stylist] Jessica Paster got her a beautiful gold Roberto Cavalli custom-made. But when Andre found out, he went ballistic. Moments before she left for the show, there was a power struggle and Jennifer ended up putting his outfit on."
Hudson need to learn to stand up for herself more, or she'll be eaten alive in Hollywood.Source

Naomi Campbell Needs a Personal Assistant: Own Helmet Required
Job-seekers beware! Naomi Campbell is looking for a new personal assistant, and the search is going to be turned into an MTV reality show.
The catwalking supermodel has shown a penchant in the past for chucking small objects at her PA's head, namely Swarovski encrusted cel phones, etc. Campbell's last six assistants have quit because of her tirades, and physical and emotional abuse toward them.
The model has been forced to attend anger management classes, and do community service.
A source said: "Naomi is extremely demanding and is suspicious of new people before she trusts them."
On the plus side, the chosen PA will travel the world and enjoy a glamorous lifestyle. On the minus side, they may have to have quite a hefty health insurance policy for all those x-rays they could require, and probably will need to wear a crash helmet at all times. Hopefully Naomi offers full benefits to be her missile target.Source

Bobby Brown: Back to Jail
Singer Bobby Brown, who has become more famous for his against the law antics than for his lyrics, is on his way to jail again. This time for failing to appear at a child support hearing, and failure to pay fines.
Brown was picked up at his daughter's high school cheerleading competition, and officer's reported that he was very cooperative, and they even let him borrow a cel phone to make a call.
Brown has been sentenced to 10-30 days for the failure to appear, and is being transported to the Norfolk County House of Corrections. Later this evening Brown will have an opportunity to pay what he owes and get out fo completing the jail sentence.
38 year old Bobby has previously been arrested for multiple reasons, such as battery, rape, sexual battery, drunk driving, failing drug tests, posession of marijuana, domestic violence, and public urination on a car. Source

The Wardrobe Malfunctions at the Oscars
reported on the innocent occurences that befell some of the red carpet folk as they took their turn in front of the photographers. Sadly for the bored masses, no nipples or bare buns made an appearance.
No, not that kind of wardrobe malfunction. But these ladies – and their outfits – barely made it out of the red carpet alive! Below, the injured parties on the red carpet:
• Maggie Gyllenhaal's dress looked great on the red carpet – literally. Her feather-trimmed Proenza Schouler dress shedded wherever she walked.
• Only halfway down the red carpet, and Eddie Murphy's girlfriend Tracey Edmonds's long gown already had a hole in it.
• Gwyneth Paltrow made it out of the red carpet unscathed, but just a few steps into the Kodak Theatre, a woman stepped on the train of her Zac Posen gown. Thankfully, there were no visible rips – but Paltrow picked up the train. (She should have taken a cue from Kate Winslet, who employed a professional train-holder for part of the night.)
• Isla Fisher's jeweled bracelet broke on the red carpet, leaving her and fiancé Sacha Baron Cohen to fiddle with the troubled clasp as they continued to make their way down the carpet.
This was a GOOD night for Isla Fisher. At the Golden Globes the back of her dress ripped open, exposing her granny panties underneath.

Oscar's Worst Dressed
It seems to be the general concensus that Cameron Diaz topped the worst dressed list for this year's Oscar's, wearing what looked like a cardboard cut out of a dress. I didn't want to pick on a little girl, but Abigail Breslin was right up there with a birthday cake looking dress topped with rubber flowers. Following those two were Jennifer Lopez, who I really wanted to like, but couldn't get past the fact that her dress made her look huge. Then Jennifer Hudson's space-age python shrug, and Kelly Preston's leopard print disaster. To give credit where credit is due, Hudson't\s dress was much better when she lost her little jacket during the awards show.
Alot of bloggers put Nicole Kidman on the worst dressed list, but I loved her dress, even if it was a little bit on the bright side. Anne Hathaway was also dinged for the oversize bow on her chest, but I thought it worked alright.
Overall the fashions were great, and the men looked dazzling. The overall trend for the ladies seemed to be the grecian goddess look, and also the one shouldered thing was big, and then the feather trim.
The biggest surprise for me, was that there were no risk takers, and not a swan dress or nipple slip to be found. Fashions were very staid and conservative, for the most part, aside from the bright colors worn by Jessica Biel and Nicole Kidman. The biggest fashion risk of the night was a 'Little Shop of Horrors' type vine crawling up Keisha Whitaker's back.
Angelina Back in Africa
Angelina Jolie is back in Africa to monitor the crisis in Darfur, as goodwill ambassador for the UN. She is unable to go into Darfur itself due to the unstable conditions there, but she is in Chad and visiting refugee camps about two miles from the Sudan border.
