Remember that odd story that we heard a few weeks ago of Jamie Lynn Spears whipping out a serrated bread knife to fend off attackers who threatened her and a friend at a sandwich shop in Hammond, LA? Well, because the gods are good to us, surveillance video of the incident has made its way into the hands of TMZ who are happily sharing the video with the rest of us today. As you may recall, Jamie Lynn and her friend Brandi Smith-Mitchell got inadvertently caught up in a fight that broke out at the Pita Pit sandwich shop and when her friend was threatened by the thugs, Jamie Lynn ran behind the counter to grab a knife in defense of her friend. Video of the entire incident has finally made its way to our eyeballs … and you can watch in full above. The story sounded crazy when we read about it, wait until you see it play out in video.
Roc Nation Sports doing big things
Ohhh, to be a fly at this boxing event. Rihanna, Jay Z, and Jake Gyllenhaal quite possibly had more fun than I did last night (though it’s difficult to say, since I was watching the first season of Looking, and eating pizza, and folding laundry while the kids were at a birthday party). Jay Z launched Roc Nation Sports a while back and last night he held his first boxing event as a promoter (just after signing super middleweight champion Andre Ward). Sources say Gyllenhaal was schooling RiRi on some boxing stuff, and Rihanna was being Rihanna (dancing, and having tons of fun, and reapplying her red lipstick). Remember, Gyllenhaal has been filming for his new role as Billy “The Great” Hope in Southpaw, so he knows the sport well now. Jay probably knew I was busy and decided not to hit me up. It’s cool. Peep the gallery for more!

He was *thrilled*, I'm sure
Yesterday we learned that actress Angelina Jolie and hubby Brad Pitt were planning to meet with Pope Francis at a VIP meet-and-greet opportunity at the Vatican. Today we learn that that meet-and-greet took place sooner than expected as the first photos of Angelina and Pope Francis have been released. The pontiff and director were brought together after Jolie‘s film Unbroken was screened at the Vatican (even tho the pope was unable to attend the screening because he had some pope work to do). She asked for a photo, he asked for an autograph — I’m guessing — and two of the world’s most famous people came face to face at last. More »
The Last Supper
Yesterday morning we learned that Real Housewives of New Jersey reality TV show star Teresa Giudice turned herself in to police to begin serving her 14 month prison sentence after she was convicted on multiple felony fraud charges last October and today we get to see the last photos taken of Teresa before she went to prison. Before she turned herself in to police just before 3 AM yesterday morning, Teresa stopped at a roadside diner for a little nosh. An eagle-eyed fan spied Teresa chowing down on an egg sandwich and, naturally, decided to share the photos with the world. Have a look below and see Teresa enjoying her last supper as a free woman before she went to prison. More »

It’s been a few months since we heard about Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin probably definitely dating but because Chris has been hanging out with his estranged wife Gwyneth Paltrow lately, I assumed that the thing that J. Law and Chris probably definitely had was long dunzo. BUT, a new photo of the pair enjoying a low key dinner together this week around New Year’s Eve seems to imply that the couple are probably definitely back on again. At the very least, it proves that Jen and Chris are still very good friends … but probably definitely friends with benefits :D More »
Drama at the Pita Pit
As far as crazy stories go, this one has to be THE craziest I’ve heard in a while … deff one for the That-Ish-Cray Hall of Fame … TMZ is reporting that Jamie Lynn Spears, younger sister of our dear Britney Spears, got into a dangerous-sounding altercation at a sandwich shop in Hammond, Louisiana last weekend when she was forced to defend her friend Brandi Smith-Mitchell from an unprovoked physical assault. According to the report, after Brandi was assaulted, JL leaped into action to protect her friend by jumping behind the sandwich counter and pulling a serrated bread knife on the attackers. I mean … what? More »
Earlier today we saw photos of Marky Mark Whalberg sunning his buns (literally) on a beach in Barbados and, not to be outdone, now we get to see a batch of photos of actor Orlando Bloom soaking up some rays on a beach in Cancun. Unfortunately, Orlando didn’t suffer any wardrobe malfunctions on his beach outing (damn properly fastened swim trunks) but his hot bod is enough to provide interesting viewing for you, I think. Have a looksee … and I gotta know, who’s photos are hotter — Marky‘s or Orlando‘s?

Crack Kills (But What a Way to Go)
Marky Mark Wahlberg is currently on holiday with his family in Barbados and as you can see in the gallery presented here, he spent much of his time this weekend sunning his buns in the warm sun. It would appear that Marky‘s bathing suit trunks weren’t tied properly, hence the appearance of his bunny buns, but I don’t think anyone minds the view … amIright? Enjoy.

The Reason for the Season
For many years here (HERE and HERE) on the blog, going back to 2008 (and even earlier), I’ve posted photos of various celebs giving of their time on the holidays so that they can help serve meals to those in need at the Los Angeles Mission. For various reasons, I didn’t post photos last year or the year before and even tho we’re on the other side of Xmas this year, I don’t want to let another year go by without posting these photos. I’m sure the cynic in some of you may discount this endeavor as a PR photo op but I can assure you, many (if not all) of the celebs who donated their time at the LA Mission this year have been doing so for years. I think it’s really a great thing that these folks give of their time so that others can enjoy a holiday meal, something that we may take for granted. Kate Linder, the actress from The Young and the Restless, has served meals at the LA Mission for at least the last 8 years (as long as I’ve lived in LA) and I’m sure she will return year after year. If anything, I hope these photos can brighten your day and maybe inspire you to give of your time as well.
