The Talk of Tinseltown; Twins, Charlie Sheen & A Restraining Order

Man, Ashton Kutcher really messed Demi Moore up. Her daughters are considering getting a restraining order against her because she's fighting with them so much. If this is true, hopefully Daddy Willis can step in and smooth things over.


Charlie Sheen has pledged to donate 1 percent of the profits from his FX comedy, Anger Management, to the USO, with a guaranteed $1 million minimum. This money will go toward an entertainment facility for injured troops in Bethesda, Marlyand. The donation will mark the largest single contribution from an individual in the organization's history. Way to go, Charlie!

The Hero and I have been watching Anger Management. We love it!


Rumors continue to swirl around Rihanna and Chris Brown. The two are said to be quietly dating again. I hope this isn't true because it makes me sick to my stomach.


Katie Holmes has taken another giant step away from Scientology by enrolling Suri in Manhattan's Convent of the Sacred Heart School. Lady GaGa, Jordana Brewster and Nicky Hilton once attended this all-girl school.


Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin are expecting twins!


Sylvester Stallone's son, Sage, was found dead over the weekend. He was 36. Initial reports say he died from an accidental overdose. Currently, the cause of death and circumstances surrounding the death are still under investigation. Sylvester released the following statement. "This agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives. Sage was our first child and the center of our universe and I am humbly begging for all to have my son's memory and soul left in peace."

A Hit, A Miss & A Hot Mess, Vol. 4

It's been a minute since the last time I did one of these.


Hit - Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer looks amazing in this flirty, floral Christian Dior dress. Her hair looks great. The sunglasses and nude heels complete the look. From head to toe, she looks like a glamorous movie star. Color me jealous.


Miss - Marion Cotillard
Marion's also wearing Dior. The dress itself isn't too bad. I quite like the top half. The shoes absolutely ruin it though. I'll never understand why she chose platform wedges. They're way too distracting. And shiny.


Hot Mess - Azealia Banks
I'd never even heard of this chick, so I googled her. She's a rapper and singer. I'm so confused. The dress, if you can call it that, is peach with an orange collar. Azealia opted for coral jellies to round out the look. Because, you know, that makes sense.

Magic Mike is truly magical.

My friend Ginger and I went to see Magic Mike yesterday. Was it the greatest movie I've ever seen? No. Do I still plan to buy it when it comes out on DVD and watch certain scenes over and over again? Hell yes!

You know which one I'm talking about, right?

THE PONY SCENE!



Here's my Magic Mike breakdown.

1. Alex Pettyfer does nothing for me. I don't think he's cute at all.
2. Cody Horn, the chick who plays The Kid's sister, isn't a great actress. Her laugh really annoyed me.
3. Why was Kevin Nash even in the movie? Did anyone else notice him half-ass doing the routines? What was the point?
4. I've never been a huge Channing Tatum fan. Sure, he has a great body, but he's never been at the top of my list. I might have to rethink this. The way that boy moves...

5. Joe Manganiello could have had more lines. At least he was half naked every time they showed him.
6. I think the serious parts of the movie were lame. There should have been more stripping.
7. I don't care if he's getting old, I'd still lick Matthew McConaughey from head to toe. I'm glad he shook his groove thang before the movie ended. Did you see his ass and legs? I'm impressed.
8. Why were there so many topless chicks? I'll say it again. There should have been more men dancing and stripping.
9. I really liked the mirror scene with Dallas and The Kid. It was both awkward and hilarious.
10. I left the theater feeling exactly like I thought I would. I enjoyed the movie and will enjoy it for many years to come in the privacy of my own home.

The Talk of Tinseltown; TomKat Divorce & Adele's having a baby!

After five years of marriage, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce. Katie filed on Friday. Tom, who is filming a movie in Iceland, was reportedly caught off guard by the news. Katie's seeking sole custody of Suri and the two have already moved out. Honestly, I'm surprised they lasted this long.


Three months after announcing their engagement, Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas are married. Alec is 54. Hilaria, a yoga instructor, is 28. Yes, she's a lot younger than him, but that's not my main concern. Who the hell names their kid Hilaria? That's just hilarious.


After months of denying rumors they're dating, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher shared a little PDA over lunch this past weekend. Aw, how cute are these two together?


Josh Lucas and his wife Jessica welcomed their first child, a son, on Friday. They named him Noah Rev Maurer. Does anyone else think his wife looks like a brunette Reese Witherspoon?


Johnny Depp recently announced his split from longtime love Vanessa Paradis. The two had been together for fourteen years. Johnny's Rum Diary costar could be the reason. Depp, 49, and Amber Heard, 24, are reportedly dating now, but it sounds like the two relationships may have overlapped. Whoopsie!


Adele and her boyfriend Simon Konecki are expecting their first child together. Love Adele. Love babies. Yay!


Even though many have known about Anderson Cooper's sexuality for years, the journalist publicly came out in an open letter to political blogger Andrew Sullivan. "The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn't be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud." Good for you, silver fox. Good for you.

Sometimes, I get distracted.

I often grab my laptop with the intention of blogging. My eyes wander to various celebrity news sites, blogs I love and other random things I may happen upon. When I find an image I like or want to save for later, I pin it. If I pin one image, I want to pin them all. Next thing I know, three hours have gone by and I still haven't blogged! Let's take today for instance. I'm on vacation until Thursday. I have plenty of time to blog, so I sat down to do just that. Here's what pulled me away instead.

1. Cody Horn's black lace shorts

I want them in my closet right now.

2. Joe Manganiello

I really want to be that tire. Go ahead. Picture it.

3. Miley Cyrus

Bitch stole my haircut!

4. Cosmo’s 44 Most Ridiculous Sex Tips

This article made me snort a couple times.



The Talk of Tinseltown is coming up soon, if I don't get distracted. Again.
