Katherine Heigl Buys the Intelsat6B Retired Space Satellite

Just kidding. Actually Katherine Heigl just bought a hideous new chandelier for her house with hubby Josh Kelley. I hope he likes her awful new addition.

Rihanna Set to Prove She's 'Good Girl Gone Bad'

Rihanna is definitely setting out to prove that she's no good girl, if her newest stage outfits are a sample of what she's like.

The 20-year-old singer stepped out on stage [in Dublin] in a show-stopping bondage-inspired outfit, complete with thigh-high lace up boots and a skimpy PVC corset.

Rihanna is touring the world to promote her 'Good Girl Gone Bad' album.

Charlie Sheen Wants Boycott of Denise's Show

Ahhh, what once was such a cute and happy couple, is now the ex-couple from Hell. In the latest in the mud slinging match that will just not go away, Charlie Sheen is calling for a boycott of Denise Richards' show from TV viewers.

The Two and a Half Men star – who took ex-wife Denise Richards to court in a failed attempt to prevent her from including their two daughters in a reality show – is now urging viewers to tune out the upcoming E! series.

"I think we should all just boycott the damn thing!" Sheen, 42, half-jokingly told PEOPLE Wednesday night at an Academy of TV event for his sitcom. "Issue a mass boycott."

In January, a judge gave the former Bond Girl, 37, permission to include the ex-couple's daughters Sam, 3, and Lola, 2, in the as-yet-untitled show (which is being produced by Ryan Seacrest's company to air this summer).

But the legal ruling did nothing to dampen Sheen's opposition to the project. "You don't go to court and make stands to prevent that if you don't firmly believe in it," he said.

Regarding the court's decision, the CBS star added, "The world is upside down sometimes."

I don't know about you all, but I won't be watching the show, and not because Charlie Sheen doesn't want me to.

Matt Damon Going for Fourth Turn as Bourne

In case you didn't get enough of Matt Damon the first three times around as Jason Bourne, don't worry, he has signed on to do a fourth installment of the mega-blockbuster franchise. Director Paul Greengrass is set to take the directing chair.

No details have been released yet regarding a name or a direction, since author Robert Ludlum had only penned three Bourne novels.

Jolie Chickens Out of Meeting Up With Aniston

There has been talk for weeks about how Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie were supposed to meet up at the Beverly Hills Hotel Pre-Oscar party, and how it was to be their first meeting since Angie stole away Brad Pitt. All the gossipmongers were supremely dissappointed when Angelina and Brad opted to attend the Independent Spirit awards, but were instead surprised by Jolie's choice of outfit, which put her big baby bump on full display. The ploy effectively took the focus right off the Jenn-Ange battle, and put it squarely on Jolie's tummy.

Well played, Angelina.

Oscar's Worst Dressed

Cate Blanchett

Tilda Swinton

Ellen Page

Diablo Cody

Tlda Swinton and Diablo Cody tied for first place in the Worst Dressed category for me, with Swinton wearing a one armed velvet potato sack, and Cody basically forgetting to get out of her leopard nighty. Runner ups were a pregnant Cate Blanchett, and blah Ellen Page.

Who were your nominees for Worst Dressed?

Yeah, Sarah, Jimmy's F*****g Ben Affleck

In a great retaliatory effort at getting girlfriend Sarah Silverman back for "F*****g Matt Damon", Jimmy Kimmel creates his music video, "I'm F*****g Ben Affleck". Kimmel also recruits a who's who of Hollywood and music stars to sing backup and solos, as well as cameo appearances.

The quirky list includes Brad Pitt, Robin Williams, Don Cheadle, Macy Gray, Dominc Monaghan, Benji and Joel Madden, Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson, Lance Bass, and Cameron Diaz. I guess Jennifer Garner and Angelina Jolie weren't available?

Anyway, I think Sarah Silverman's video was better because of it's originality. Kimmel's video is funny, but it was a bit of a copycat version to me, which, I guess, was the point.

Crazy As a RAT, if You Are Sharon Stone

In an absolute "I'm-crazy-a**-Sharon-f****n'-Stone-and-I'll-wear-whatever-the-f***-I-want" moment, Sharon decides to wear a rat's paw as a brooch to Elton John's Oscar soiree.

Obviously PETA had lots to say about it.

I'm sure it was just to draw attention away from the horrific and ill-fitted suit she was wearing.

Crazy like a fox, that Sharon!

My Pick for Oscar Best Dressed: Calista Flockhart

She may not have sparkled the most, or worn the most sexy dress, or even the most colorful one, but for me, Calista Flockhart was by far the best dressed on the red carpet. Sometimes an outfit just speaks to me, and her grecian vintage Valentino was that one. I loved the fit, the colors, the draping, and the understated entire look. The dress was panned on several other blogs, but I couldn't stop staring at Calista when I saw her.

Who was your pick for best dressed?

She plays an evil socialite on TV, but Leighton Meester of 'Gossip Girl' looks good enough to eat at the Reebok World Tour Collection. Co-star Blake Lively was there too, but didn't light up the red carpet quite the way Leighton did.

Worst Dressed Old Lady of the Week: Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes is looking O-L-D this week, inexplicably donning a couple of the ugliest outfits this side of Xenu. I think she needs to rehire Posh as her stylist, unless Posh is the one responsible for those messes, then she needs to get as far away from the Brit as her skinny stick legs will carry her.

Jessica Alba Having Twins?

Reports are swarming today that expectant mom Jessica Alba will be having twins. This, of course, is one of those unsubstantiated rumors that gets attached to every celeb who gets pregnant these days. If every one of those rumors were true, there would be no more room in Hollywood for these people to live.

Time will tell with this rumor, so don't go buying any double sets of congratulatory of baby onesies for Jessica just yet.

Demi Moore Should Ask for Her Money Back

I hope Demi Moore got some sort of money back guarantee from her plastic surgeon, because it looks like that $40,000 worth of work has gone the way of the dodo bird. At 45, Demi is definitely showing her age, as you can see in the first picture. The second picture is at a recent event where she was looking totally stunning. Her bod still looks awesome though.

Kim Cattrall Goes Commando

This dress is amazing on Kim Cattrall. The hair, not so much. In fact, I hate the hair, and toyed with the idea of blocking her entire head out of the picture. Anyway, back to the dress. It is totally reminiscent of Liz Hurley's safety pin dress, but more grown up looking. You have to click on the photo to enlarge it and see the peek-a-boo detailing down the sides of the dress. Then you get that she had to totally go commando to wear that dress. So really, the hair doesn't matter when taken in the correct context.

Thanks to Crazydaysandnights blog for the picture.

Celebrities Jumping on Website Bandwagon

Mandy Moore and Sarah Ferguson are just two of the latest celebrities to launch websites that have nothing to do with themselves.

Moore is behind a women's well-being site called, described as a website aimed at helping women balance their "wellness" by sharing stories to challenge and inspire each other. She says, "Having that sense of balance in life between personal and all that other stuff is kind of essential to leading a happy life."

The Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, has launched a Facebook-style social networking website to allow women to interact with their kids online. Under the tagline for 'mothers and others who care', 48-year-old is encouraging users to make friends and post messages in each other's spaces.

Both sites are free to join and easy to navigate. Check them out!

Nicole and Joel Leave Baby and Go Party

This blurb from Page Six seemingly answers the Blind Item from Gatecrasher posted last week.

Blind item: Which recent mom is already bored with her new accessory? Despite pimping herself out to the celebrity mags as a loving parent, she is constantly finding reasons to leave the baby and "escape."

Page Six item: NICOLE Richie and Joel Madden's nanny must be raking in some serious overtime to watch the Hollywood party couple's new baby, Harlow Winter Kate Madden. During the Grammys weekend, the couple went to several parties each night for hours. Last weekend, Richie and Madden once again left their tot at home to spend some quality time with Joel's brother Benji and Lindsay Lohan at Teddy's in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. They didn't rush home until the end of the evening - "It's almost as if they aren't parents," said a spy.

P!nk and Carey Hart Divorcing

Did anyone NOT see this coming? Amidst constant rumors of a marriage bust-up, Hart's relentless flirting with groupies, P!nk's predilection for the femmes, and an "open marriage", this match made in tabloid Heaven was doomed to fail.

The marriage of pop singer Pink and her husband of two years, motocross racer and former The Surreal Life star Carey Hart, has ended, the singer's publicist, Michele Schweitzer, tells PEOPLE.

"Pink and Carey Hart have separated. This decision was made by best friends with a huge amount of love and respect for one another," says Schweitzer, adding, "While the marriage is over, their friendship has never been stronger."

Pink, 28, and Hart, 32, met at the 2001 X Games and broke up for a time in 2003, but the split was well behind them in 2005, when the singer popped the question to her beau as he sped around the track during a competition in Mammoth Lakes, Calif.

They married in January 2006 at a non-denominational ceremony in Costa Rica. Among the 100 guests was Lisa Marie Presley.

In August 2007, amid reports that the marriage was on the rocks, Hart dismissed the stories as "just a bunch of trash talk."

I guess sometimes "trash talk" is the true talk.

Eminem Was First Choice for 'Jumper' Role

Random film fact: Eminem was the first choice for the starring role in 'Jumper' that ended up starring Hayden Christensen.

Director Doug Liman had lined up rapper Eminem to star in new movie Jumper - but dropped him at the last minute in favour of Hayden Christensen.

The Lose Yourself hitmaker - whose acting debut came in 2002's 8 Mile - was first choice for the leading role in the science-fiction movie and was even in negotiations when Liman suddenly decided he preferred the Star Wars star.

Liman insists it would have been a very different film if he had given the part to the musician - but was determined to follow his instincts.

He tells, "We did have a meeting. We did have conversations with Eminem. The thing is that you're like, 'Oh my God what would the movie have been like?'

"But you have to understand that Nicole Kidman was originally cast in Mr & Mrs Smith and Brad Pitt was originally the lead in Bourne Identity. (Those roles eventually went to Angelina Jolie and Matt Damon.)

"It was one of those things where the studio, with all things being equal, would rather put a bigger name in the movie (and wanted Eminem). At some point, I just put my foot down and said, 'I love Hayden'."

CGJ Readers Meet A Cursive Memory

Every once in a while when the urge strikes, or new music crosses my path that I can't ignore, I do a little feature here on CGJ to get the word out. In the past I have profiled Eric Hutchenson and Chester French, both bands I ran across on MySpace. Tonight I found a great group called A Cursive Memory, or ACM to their friends.

The band is made up of four guys, Dillan on drums, Shaun on guitar and vocals, Mark on bass and keyboards, and Colin on guitar and vocals. Their sound is alternative pop, similar to A Simple Plan, with a little All American Rejects thrown in, rounded off with some Killers, which happens to be the exact type of sound I personally love.

ACM has already been discovered by MTV, and attracted the attention of M-Music, the music management division of Bunim/Murray Productions (responsible for shows like The Simple Life and MTV's The Real World). The quartet was the first act to sign with the company, and some of their songs soon appeared on various MTV shows like The Real World and The Gauntlet 2. The band is onto their second full-length (which goes on sale this Tuesday 2/19), and has already toured with the likes of Jimmy Eat World and Boys Like Girls.

Today, ACM's music video for their tune "Everything" was showcased on, bringing considerable attention to the mostly unkown band. You can see the video by clicking below, and also visit their MySpace page to hear more of their singles.

Jessica Alba Latina Cover Girl

Jessica Alba: ''I Can't Wait For My Baby to be Brown''

In Latina's March 2008 cover story, Jessica Alba gets personal with Editor-in-Chief Mimi Valdés Ryan and directly responds to the rumors that have resulted in her now-commonly used nickname, "Jessica 'Don't Call Me Latina' Alba." Check out some of her revealing answers below, and don't forget to pick up the full story when the issue hits newsstands on February 19!

On her reluctance to walk the red carpet at Latin events: "I'll support those shows, but I can't go on the press lines and have people make me feel bad about myself. Life is too short. I can't change how I grew up, and I shouldn't have to apologize for it. I know I feel close to the Latin community, because that's what I grew up with."

On claims that she's proud to have cut loose from her Mexican roots: "I never said that. Cut loose from what? What the hell are they talking about? Why would I want to cut loose from the only family I know?"

On not learning to speak Spanish as a child: "I wish to God that my dad spoke Spanish to my brother and me, but he didn't grow up with it."

On confusing other men for her dad as a kid: "When I was little, I used to go up to black men and hold their legs, thinking it was my dad all the time. I'd wrap my arms around them, then look up and be like, 'Oh my God!'"

On being accepted for who she is in Hollywood: "I was always trying to figure out: How the hell am I going to be mainstream? How are people going to accept me? When are the going to get a clue that I am American, that this is what America looks like--people like me who are mixed, have different blood, mixed with different ethnicities? When are the people who are hiring for these jobs and writing these screenplays going to realize that?"

On what she wants her baby to look like: "I'm excited for my baby to be brown. I just have to believe the dark gene is going to survive. Cash and I are like, please!"
