The Talk of Tinseltown; The 9:30 PM Edition

Matt Damon and his wife Luciana welcomed another girl into the family. Stella joins big sisters Isabella, Gia and Alexia. I hope Matt hangs out with George and Brad from time to time because that's a whole lot of estrogen in one house.


Céline Dion gave birth to twin boys on Saturday. Céline and her husband, René Angelil, have been open about their struggles with infertility. She conceived the twins after her sixth in vitro treatment in about a year. The two also have a 9-year-old son, René-Charles.


People Magazine is reporting that Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal are dating. Well, I didn't see that coming. Then again, Jake does seem to have a thing for southern blondes.


Katy Perry and Russell Brand got married in India on Saturday. I'm not a big Katy Perry fan, but I do love Russell. May they live happily ever after!


Brett Favre has finally confessed to leaving this chick voicemails while he was playing for the New York Jets. He denies the penis pics are his though. It's really a case of dumb and dumber. He sends sexy texts and voicemails. She ignores them. When she isn't in the spotlight anymore, the messages and pictures end up all over the news. I'm thinking they both feel like asshats right about now. I don't have empathy for either of them.


Mel Gibson was set to appear in The Hangover 2. When news broke of his cameo, the public was outraged so the execs decided to replace him with Liam Neeson. A source close to Gibson said, "He doesn’t understand why Mike Tyson, a drug user who turned his life around, was given a chance while he was kicked to the curb. Everybody deserves a second chance." Mike Tyson was a drug addict AND bit someone's ear off. I am in no way supporting Mel Gibson's behavior, but the man has a point.


Speaking of Mel Gibson, his baby mama Oksana Grigorieva turned down $75,000 to pose in Playboy. I know men love naked women, but does anyone really want to see her without her clothes on?

WHAT?!?! Jake and Taylor??? I love her but I can't support this.

That one girl said...

I'm out of it. Had no idea Celine was even prego!

Karen Peterson said...

Mike Tyson's also a convicted rapist.

But Mel does have a point.

I heard the biggest reason Mel's not appearing in Hangover 2, though, was that Zach Galifianakis was upset about it.

Oh, and I give Katy and Russell 7 months. Sorry.

Simone said...

I love the way you write this. And I agree with you on every point you made here :)

Taylor Swift and gorgeous Jake....seriously? I hadn't heard that. That guy needs an older woman....someone like me ;)

Hope Little Man's birthday party went well....33 people, eeep!!!

:)

taylor and jake?! really?! she is starting to get on my nerves.

fojoy said...

Ugh - Jake and Taylor just seems so wrong...
And I think the Gibson vs Tyson thing all comes down to timing - people are ready to laugh at Mike Tyson, but the Mel Gibson is still so fresh *shudder*. Maybe in 10 years people will be ready for him to play a parody of himself...

A Real Housewife said...

i read yesterday that taylor also dated john mayer and on her latest album writes a song about how she'll always love him. miss swift sure does get around...i used to think she was so adorable, but now i'm starting to think she's a bit of a hussy.

I should remember to never drink coffee while reading your blog. Some of it might have exited my mouth when I read the Tyson comment.

MiMi said...

Oh good Lawd, we're gonna have to watch Celine bawlin' all over Oprah now.
And yeah, I'm with you, I see Mel's point there.
Did you know what Russell gave his bride for a wedding gift? A tiger. Swear.

Matt should remember that it's always 50/50 on the odds and he could end up with a dozen girls... it's nice to see people who enjoy family in old TinselTown... Taylor and Jake -- five months, just enough time for her to write another song... I don't thinks he's anywhere ready to settle down, yet... I don't want to comment on the rest... come visit when you can...

Krista said...

Jake and Taylor? Are you frickin kidding me? Isn't she like 12?

SurferWife said...

Oh see? I can dig on Katy Perry but I cannot staaaaand Russell. I was disappointed from the moment I found out they were dating.

I think this marks our very first male celebrity disagreement.

Much More Than Mommy said...

"...the man does have a point" <--- cracked me up! (And he does!)

Lipgloss Ninja said...

jake and taylor - isnt that, like, illegal?

didnt know celine was preggers???

matt must stop fathering now - he is looking old and fatherly.

mel gibson looks freakin awful.

Salt said...

Taylor Swift and Jake G? Isn't that borderline statutory?

PeaceLoveApplesauce said...

I seriously want Taylor's hair.. that is all.

Sammy said...

jake and taylor.... not a fan!

Natalie said...

Can not stand one thing about Taylor Swift. She has a few catchy songs, but I would perfer it if they wore song by someone else.
Can't Jake find someone his own age? Didn't she just go to prom last year?

Why the F is Mel Gibson comparing himself to Mike Tyson? He wants to be in the same group as a man that was convicted of a rape, domestic violence AND biting off an ear? What does that say about him? Looney.

Boobies said...

LOVE the scoop!

Jake and Taylor though? Ehhhh--I'm just not feeling that!

From Tracie said...

I have to admit it...he does have a point.

Taylor Swift freaks me out. I think she is part cat. My husband does not like it when I say this because I can't explain these feelings, but they are there, so I will continue to feel them until someone can prove to me that she isn't. (it is all in those squinty eyes of hers)

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

Mel has a point but at the same time I believe most of the cast members involved with the movie did not want Mel there either - it's a matter of making the ORIGINAL cast happy not Mr. "I think I'm so high and mighty" Gibson happy. Besides Tyson talks funny and it's better for laughs Mel is just sad. Then again Tyson is sad too... geez now I'm all mixed up!
