The Talk of Tinseltown; Oh, George

Regis Philbin, 79, announced he'll soon be retiring from Live with Regis & Kelly. He said it's because it's time, but rumors are swirling that ABC was going to cut his pay because the show's ratings are suffering. Regis told Kelly about his retirement moments before the show went live. There's early whisperings that Ryan Seacrest could be in the running since his contract with American Idol is up soon. I'd totally watch Ryan with Kelly. I love him. It will be sad to see Regis go though. He's a television icon.


Nadya Suleman, the Octomom, recently filmed a baby fetish video at her home. She's dressed as a dominatrix and whips a grown man dressed as a baby. She's turned down numerous offers to do porn, but settled for this instead since she's got bills to pay. Seriously though... she's just knocking on porn's door.


Christina Aguilera recently attended Jeremy Renner's 40th birthday bash. Why is this news you ask? Well, first of all, she wasn't invited. Second of all, she got extremely drunk, made an ass of herself and passed out in his bed. The story then leaked to US Weekly. Renner denies it ever happened and Christina's not saying a word. Let's all pretend it's true because it makes for a fabulous story.


It was announced a few days ago that Anne Hathaway will play Catwoman in the next Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises. I'll be honest and say that I'm not a huge Anne fan. I don't hate her, but I don't love her either. She hasn't done anything to blow me away. Something about her irks me. However, I will try and reserve judgment until the film comes out. I trust that Christopher Nolan knows what he's doing. In case you didn't know, I'm a total guy when it comes to this series. So, who is as anxious as I am to see this movie?


Jesse James and Kat Von D announced their engagement seven months after Jesse's divorce from Sandra Bullock. I hope these two are very happy together. I'm all for tattoos, but who the hell thinks it's pretty or sexy to put them ON YOUR FACE?


Nicole Kidman amd Keith Urban had a baby girl via a surrogate right after Christmas, but kept the news a secret for almost a month. Faith Margaret joins baby sister Sunday Rose. Congrats to the super cute couple!


George Clooney contracted Malaria on a recent trip to Sudan. His rep says he's completely over the infection. Raise your hand if you're disappointed you didn't get to nurse him back to health.

the best Batman ever, Christian Bale

Hilar!

Ewww, Anne Hathaway. Not sure why I have such issues with her...just do. Oh, but ewwww even more, Octomom. Shes just nasty. And where did Christina get all that pudge from? Wasn't she just in that burlesque movie?

KLZ said...

I am SO EXCITED by the Batman series. I love Christopher Nolan.

But...Anne Hathaway? Meh.

Also, that dude dressed as a baby looks entirely too impressed with himself.

Scrappy Girl said...

Anne will forever be Princess Mia to me.

I wonder how Jesse will find someone sleezier than Kat to cheat on her with? I can't stand his face. He is a loser.

Simone said...

I feel just the same about Anne Hathaway, not sure what it is but I just don't love her.

Jesse James....I really felt for Sandy B when I saw him saying the other day that 2010 was his best year ever. When you think of how SB only ever said good stuff about him...UGH!! Loser!!!

Nice photo of Mr Clooney....but then when isn't he gorgeous? :)

Simone said...

How are you doing with Project 52....just askin? ;)

Christina said...

I think I’d watch Ryan and Kelly. I prefer Anderson and Kelly, but I guess he’ll be busy with his own show, which I will be watching! Christina Aguilera is a hot mess and I totally believe the story. Also, Jeremy Renner turned 40? I seriously though he was in his late 20s/very early 30s. Men can suck it. I 100% agree with you about Anne. That’s some strange casting to me but I am excited to see it!

Kristina P. said...

Yeah, I'm not sure about Anne as Catwoman. I think she's a decent actress, but I don't see her as sexy.

Gosfam said...

I don't know why, but when I read in People that Regis was retiring I got teary-eyed--LOL!! I used to watch the show, but haven't in years.

I like Anne--I don't think she is that bad, and I can't wait for Batman either.

Date Girl said...

Christian Bale is by far the best Batman. I am disappointed in the Anne Hathaway casting choice. She irks me too. I'm afraid she'll make it too campy instead of more serious. Hopefully I'm wrong!

A Real Housewife said...

Jesse & Kat's babies will come out with tatt sleeves. so not excited for these two.

regis will be missed. i heard somewhere he holds the record for most tv time ever?

nadia is so trashy. and her baby's crib is in the back ground...WT.

PeaceLoveApplesauce said...

I'd totally watch Ryan on Live! He'd be great w/ Kelly!!
Anne, yack! Was Halle not available? HAHA!!

JG said...

This is the best place for celeb news, especially since I can give a shit about celebs.

That being said, I take back what I said about Anne. She's got a Joker smile. Ugh.

Seacrest doing that show? That's actually one show I enjoy whenever I am home sick. All those other talking head shows are awful and putting that doucheturd on it will make it worse. Or maybe I am partial to Regis and Kelly because they are Stern fans.

Finally, Kat and what's his face? Ugliest hollywood couple by a MILE

Natalie said...

I am such a guy when it comes to movies as well! I can't wait for the next Batman to come out. I am excited for Anne. I just love her. I don't know if its because she is extremely fair skinned and so I fell that I can relate, but there ya have it! :)
I just love Nicole Kidman. Hooray for their new baby! :)

MiMi said...

Hathaway as Catwoman?? That's just weird. She's NOT a Catwoman. At all.
And who the hell is Jeremy Renner? Guess I better Google that.

jennykate77 said...

Yes, let's pretend that the whole Christina getting drunk crashing a party story is true. Great for entertainment purposes.

Congrats to Keith and Nicole! I love the new baby's name. So cute.

Kat Von D is making me not like her. I guess it should be Jesse that I hold the grudge on...he's the one that crapped on Sandra.

Side note: I love Kat Von D's lip gloss in her makeup line...LOVE it!

Thanks for the 411! :)

Tara said...

bahahahahaha octomom!!! omg. that is the funniest pic i've ever seen!

SharleneT said...

I would never watch Ryan Seacrest on that show... He's far too arrogant and self-centered... I like Anne in her classical movies; it's hard to imagine her as a superhero... George, what can I say? He just keeps getting better...

Ashley said...

Love Nicole and Keith. So happy for them!

Michelle Hoad said...

I beg to differ. Best Batman ever, Keaton. The original. A little quirky, but totally hot.

lil desiqua said...

Personally, I can't see Ann as Catwoman. Not that I could really see Halle Berry as her either though.
Regis looks plastic to me. I don't tihnk I've ever sat through a whole episode.
I'm a little surprised you didn't mention Clooney's swearing off of marriage to his hottie model/actress gf! I didn't realize he was married before, but he's already said he's not marrying this one in an interview.

Impulsive Addict said...

I have mixed feelings about Reg leaving. I love Kelly. I have ever since she first started on All My Children. And her hubby is TOTALLY hot.

The octomom is a FREAK. Can't.stand.her. It makes me sick that she had so many babies and now is trying to get famous for it.

Christina...nah. Whatev. She's going through a wild phase.

I'm not a Hathaway fan either. I heard she's a real bitch.

I used to love Jesse. Now I hate him. I can't believe he shat on Sandra. Poor thing. I just love her.

This whole secretive baby thing with Nicole and Keith took me by surprise. How did they pull that off?

I've never understood the Clooney thing. Can we still be friends?

Lisa - Fine Sweet Life said...

Clooney is getting older looking....a lot older looking. Might have to take him off my list now.

(Florida) Girl said...

Did you see Octomom's interview on Oprah? Holy smokes. *Imbalanced*

Nancy said...

I don't understand Jesse James and KatVonD. WTF?!

I love Christian Bale as Batman. He's pretty darn amazing. I really like Anne Hathaway as an actress but I can't see her as Catwoman.

Karen Peterson said...

I can never decide if I like Anne or not. Sometimes I think I don't, and then I see her in something and think she's not so bad. I guess I'll follow your example and just trust Christopher Nolan. After all, I thought he was insane when he cast Heath Ledger.

Mighty M said...

Oooh, Ryan and Kelly would be so fun to watch together. Ryan could probably host a show about cocoons and it would be awesome. It's very hard to type since one of my hands is very much raised! :)
