The Talk of Tinseltown; Brits & Babies

Orlando Bloom and Victoria's Secret model, Miranda Kerr, wed in a "secret" ceremony on Wednesday. The couple who've been dating for three years announced their engagement in June. I don't know why the tabloids label all weddings that aren't announced to the press as being secret. If there were guests at the ceremony, it wasn't a secret.


Amanda Bynes, who announced her retirement from acting a month ago via Twitter, wants everyone to know she's now unretired. She apparently came out of retirement to plug her new movie, Easy A. I don't even know why I'm sharing this because nobody cares. It was either this or tell you about Lindsay Lohan being isolated from the other prisoners because they started chanting firecrotch.

Does anyone else think Lindsay could look just like this girl if she got herself rehabilitated?


Rumors have been circulating that Britney Spears has been counseling Mel Gibson in recent weeks. Yes, he was there for her during her troubled times, but her reps say she hasn't spoken with Mel in two years. For the survival of mankind, I hope these two aren't besties.


Investigators working the cases of Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack think mold in their home could have been a contributing factor in their deaths. When Brittany passed, the mold issue came up, but was later dismissed. Suspicions arose again this week when Simon's autopsy came back with the same causes of death as Brittany's -- pneumonia and anemia. Brittany's mom originally refused to allow the L.A. County Coroner's Office to look into the mold issue, but has now agreed. This could explain why husband and wife both had respiratory health problems. Pneumonia is a dangerous side effect of mold exposure. To think one or both of them could be alive if it weren't for some nasty mold... so sad.


Heroes actress Ali Larter is expecting her first child with her writer/actor husband, Hayes MacArthur. The couple has been married since last August.


The newly engaged Christina Applegate has a baby on the way with bass player Martyn Lenoble. Applegate, 38, and Lenoble, 41, got engaged on Valentine's Day of this year after dating for two years. I love her!


Bruce Willis has revealed that a Die Hard 5 is imminent. I could act like I don't care, but I'll totally see it when it comes out. I'm such a boy.

Britney and Mel?? Holy moly, save us all!

I think Amanda Bynes is such a doll, I love her. Yes, being retired at 20-something is a little whack, but I adore her. And yes, if Lindsay would SNAP OUT OF IT she could be cute like her too.

Um, that last picture of Paula says it all!

XOXO

Christina said...

Good stuff! I love your comment on the Bloom-Kerr wedding. Good for them for being normal and having a "secret" wedding! I'm so happy for Christina and Ali too!

Sharlene T. said...

I hope Amanda doesn't have a career of retiring-not retiring... that's so exhausting when they do that... Lindsay just needs to serve her time and grow up... can't even conceive of a conversation between Brittany and Mel... have a great day and come visit when you can...

I agree with you about the secret wedding thing, just because the paps were not told doesn't mean no one was LOL

I died laughing at the firecrotch story on Perez.
Also, mold?! I read about that too and think it could really be a possibility. So sad! All that money and possibly dying from a mold issue..

Kristina P. said...

I didn't realize it was talked about as being mold. That is scary.

Michelle Hoad said...

I love Bruce Willis. I will see anything he's in.

Simone said...

Yay, Talk of Tinseltown is back....thank goodness!!!

Orlanda and Miranda...good for them, what a beautiful couple.

Who is that in the pink dress...is it Stephanie Pratt? I'm sure I should know!!

Britney & Mel.....YIKES!!!

Christina Applegate is lovely, happy for some good news for her.

:)

Mold is so bad they had to shut down a whole dorm at my college because of it and it was condemned for like 3 years until it was fixed. Thanks for my update on gossip.

Salt said...

Yay for Christina Applegate! I love her so much too.
And I will definitely see Die Hard 5. I loved all the other ones so....

gringationcancun said...

Who DOESNT love Christina Applegate?!?!

I'm kinda annoyed by Amanda Bynes now... used to love her.

Natalie said...

I've loved Amanda Bynes since she was on Nick YEARS ago with her own show. She's adorable & funny.

I couldn't be happier for Christina Applegate. She's been through so much & really deserves to be happy.

Is it just me or does anyone else see Ali Larter & think "whip cream bikini"?

SurferWife said...

i love me some good pictures of "Pauler"

And Orlando and his bride make such a good looking couple. Shit.

Kristy said...

I give Orlando and whats-her-face 6 months. Tops.

Kristy said...

About as long as Amanda Bynes retirement.

MiMi said...

Brit and Mel should get together and have some racist redneck kids.
Also, isn't LiLo used to being called firecrotch?? I mean, I thought all red heads were called that.

Date Girl said...

Oh man...Britney counseling someone? That's a scary thought...

I love Christina Applegate too! I wish they hadn't canceled her show Samantha Who. She was adorable on it.

Dezzy Lou Where Are You said...

I wish I looked like Amanda Bynes. All I need is hair bleach, way tall heels, to drop 50 pounds and get a nose job. Easy, right?

Fabulous Terrah said...

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this post. LOL, love it and love you my dear.

McGriddle Pants said...

I totally LOVE Amanda Bynes. I've seen "What a Girl Wants" like a BaJillion times!

A Real Housewife said...

did the lindsey lohan firecrotch shouting really happen? awesome.

i heart christina applegate.

so over bruce willis.

Trixie and Tess said...

I'm totally LOLing over Brit and Mel being besties! OHmygoodness. Not a good combo. Stupid Amanda...who in their 20's randomly announces that they're retired?! Who does that?! I think she was just trying to get attention and for people to be like "NO you can't retire!" gag. Oh, and "firecrotch" is a compliment, right? Or merely an observation? Lilo, don't get your panties in a wad! I'm pretty sure that girl is beyond help. She's on self-destruct mode. You have to WANT to get better and I think she is convinced that she's completely normal. Wrong.

Geesh. Crazy celebrities. At least they give us something to talk about, right?!

Trixie and Tess said...

Oh, and Paula is on crack. That's all.

Shelley said...

My MIL will be sad to hear the news of Orlando Bloom.

I'm glad Amanda is UNretired now. I think she is so cute and I hope she keeps acting!

Why on earth would ANYONE bother "counseling" Mel Gibson unless it was an actual "Counselor"? He's too far gone.

Mold?! Mold killed them?! I guess it would be a lot better than if they both killed themselves...sad!

So happy for Ali and Christina!

Michael will be happy to hear about the next Die Hard!

Paula, Paula, Paula...

The Empress said...

LOVE this celebrity gossip, thank you!! I hadn't even heard on the mold thing...wow.

Tracie said...

That is so sad about the mold. And scary, too!

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

Die Hard 5 - are you kidding me - BEST NEWS EVER!

So sad about Brit Murphy :( Mold, really? How awful!

Amanda B is such a cutie but you know what, I really wasn't worried about her retirement and now I'm just plain annoyed by her coming back - Michael Jordan did the same thing to me but you know what he was at the top of his game, she's a cutie but not exactly Oscar worthy if you get what I mean. Although she is a positive role model - Lindsay should DEFINITELY pay attention!

Well done girl - I always love your hollywood updates!

CHRISTINA A IS AMAZING - LOVE HER!

Karen said...

Somehow, the idea of Brittany and Mel as besties kind of makes me giggle. Think of the reality shows!

And I'm so going to be first in line for Die Hard 5.
