The Talk of Tinseltown
Brief Tuesday Edition


I tend to schedule most of my posts in advance minus The Talk of Tinseltown. I wait until the last minute with those so I can share the latest celebrity news with you. Yesterday, I never got around to it. I ran an early morning errand that took longer than anticipated. After being out in the heat for a couple of hours, I ended up in bed with a migraine. Then, when I finally felt better, I couldn't get The Hero to share the computer. So, today I bring you a quick burst of celebrity news.

1. Lindsay Lohan was released from jail. She's currently in rehab for drug abuse and psychological problems. The latest rumor is that her drug of choice is meth.

2. Chelsea Clinton got married over the weekend. The bride wore Vera Wang. There were 400 guests. Oprah was not there.

3. Alicia Keys also got married over the weekend. She married music producer, Swiss Beatz, in France. She'll be having his baby later in the year.

4. Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston's relationship may already be on the rocks because he reportedly got an ex-girlfriend pregnant during their breakup. {paternity test pending}

5. Laurence Fishburne's daughter, 19, has released a sex tape. Monica Fishburne says, "I've watched how successful Kim Kardashian became and I think a lot of it was due to the release of her sex tape." This girl is really on top of how show business works.

6. Piers Morgan is rumored to be taking over for Larry King when he retires.

7. Ellen DeGeneres has decided to leave American Idol. Kara DioGuardi has reportedly been fired. Since Simon Cowell's gone, this leaves Randy Jackson as the only original judge left on the panel. Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are said to be in the final stages of contract negotiations with the show. I don't know about you, but this seems really random. Good luck, Fox. You're going to need it.

8. Snooki was arrested for public drunkenness.

9. Comedian Russell Brand was in a car accident. A huge truck plowed into his rented Lamborghini.

10. Lady Gaga was nominated for 13 MTV Video Music Awards, the most ever by an artist in a single year. I hope she wins them all.


The Talk of Tinseltown was brought to you today by...


Nicole Kidman

GO GA! I hope she wins them all too.
And I wouldn't be surprised if that were Lindsay's drug of choice. She's totally been sporting a meth face lately.

And Bristol and Levi aren't lasting forever!? If those two crazy kids can't make it, is there any hope for the rest of us??

Great lil' tidbits... thanks for passing them along. That is totally random about American Idol and who might be judging next. I'd definitely watch Steven Tyler, tho. JLo? Maybe I'd watch her...

And that picture of Nicole, geeze her hair line is blending with her skin! Add some color somewhere, woman!

I just got tickets to see Lady Gaga in concert in Charlotte in September. Freakin' love her! Emphasis on "freakin'" b/c she is a freak! ;)

I can't believe Nicole Kidman actually has a baby, pseudo wrinkle on her forehead in that photo. Is that legal?

Me (aka Danielle) said...

Really, Piers Morgan? That would take some getting used to, for me.

I loves me some GaGa!!

and that's HILARIOUS about Bristol Pailin's boyfriend. I dont think either of them even wanted to get back together... total publicity stunt.

ANd yeah... a sex tape?!? SOunds VERY promising. I can hear the academy calling you as we speak!!

So curious how American Idol is going to end up....it is quickly becoming a different show.

Chelsea Clinton scares me.
But not as much as The Ga.

MiMi said...

And, doesn't The Hero know that the interwebz relies on YOU for our entertainment updates?!

Lindsey needs to stay in rehab until she is totally free of any drugs, and then she just needs to get out of Hollywood and away from the crowd she hangs with... Bristol Palin looks like a young woman desperately wanting a man to love her, at least, that's what I see in her face... I never believed for one second that they would actually go through with the marriage... I think Piers would make a wonderful interviewer... thanks for the Hollywood update...

That pic of Nichole cracks me up! I hope Russell is ok. Lady Gaga scares me a little, but I can't stop watching her. Everyone acts so surprised that Snooki was picked up for being drunk...lol. Idol is going to completely suck. It's so sad. I'm gonna miss that show.

Thanks for the down low.
