Guy Ritchie Has Dinner With His Sons

The first of many single dad dinners to come

Earlier today we learned that Madonna and Guy Ritchie have been granted a “quickie divorce” from the London High Court after the parties agreed on a settlement concerning assets and child custody. Last night, Guy spent some time with his two sons Rocco and David Banda which shows that he intends to take an active role in their lives despite the fact that he is splitting with Madge:


While I am happy that there will be no nasty divorce for Maddy and Guy, I’m really bummed that their young children now have many years of shuffling back and forth across the Atlantic Ocean to spend time with their parents. I’m sure that both Madonna and Guy will do their best to care for their children and make the shared custody work as best as they can but … the kids are so young … I can’t imagine that it will be easy for either Rocco or David.

The Simpsons Visit Bronx Mowgli Wentz

Papa Joe & Jessica meet the littlest Wentz

Early this morning we learned that Ashlee Simpson had finally given birth to her first child with hubby Pete Wentz, a little boy the couple decided to name Bronx Mowgli, late Thursday. This afternoon, we get to see a couple photos of famous members of Ashlee‘s family visiting with the newborn baby boy in at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center … behold:


As you can see, Grandpapa Joe Simpson had his cameraphone at the ready and was bizzy snappin’ pics of the little guy … presumably so the photos could be shared with family and friends but, considering Papa Joe‘s penchant for making money off his children, it’s just as likely that he is planning on selling the pics of his newborn grandbaby as well. The caption of the second photo insists the person in the red coat is Jessica but it’s kinda hard to tell. I do know that Jess did talk to In Touch Weekly about her newborn nephew, tho, expressing her elation to the mag:

No one is happier to be an aunt than Jessica Simpson. “Bronx is beyond precious. I’m over the moon with joy,” Jessica Simpson tells In Touch about her sister Ashlee Simpson-Wentz’s baby boy, who was born on Thursday. “Life is a beautiful miracle. Ashlee and Pete are healthy, happy and enjoying every moment.”

I think it’s pretty safe to say that both the Simpson and the Wentz families are thrilled at the baby’s arrival. Whether or not they are as in love with the kid’s name as their parents are is another story … for another day.

AnnaLynne McCord Suffers A Wardrobe Malfunction On Set

'9021'-Oopsie!

You know, in Tinsel Town, you really haven’t reached the level of Hollywood “It” Girldom until you’ve achieved your first wardrobe malfunction. In previous years, wardrobe malfunctions (specifically of the crotch shot variety) seemed like a daily occurrence but this year, there haven’t been that many NSFW moments to be had … until now. AnnaLynne McCord, who stars as the beyotchy Naomi Clark on 90210, accidentally popped out of her top as she tried to make her way from her tralier to the beach set of the show yesterday afternoon. While filming in Long Beach, CA, Miss McCord‘s nipple slipped out of her top to say hello to the folks on set:

Paris Hilton Talks About Her Break-Up With Benji Madden

"We're just taking a break ... we're really good friends, we're very close"

It’s only been a few days since we got word that Paris Hilton and Benji Madden are dunzo and Paris is already going on the record to talk about the couple’s split. Paris was a guest this morning on On Air With Ryan Seacrest on KIIS FM here in SoCal this morning and talked at some length about the split, making sure to clarify somethings about the break-up that have been reported erroneously. Last night, Paris spent a second night in a row flying sans her now ex-boyfriend Benji and ended up hanging out with her sister Nicky Hilton instead. Here is a pic of Paris out all by her lonesome last night and my report on her radio interview this morning with Ryan Seacrest:


After some banter about some of the word that Paris has been doing over the past few weeks, Ryan got to the nitty-gritty and asked her if the reports are true — did she and Benji really split up — and she said: “Well, you know, right now we’re just taking a break and um … we, we’re really good friends, we’re very close.” Ryan pressed, So you’re not together? “You know, I love him, he’s such an amazing man, he’s my best friend, he’s been so great to me, so loyal, he’s an incredible person and, um, we’ll always be very close, we’ll see what happens in the future, I’m still in love with him.” Ryan then confessed that, as a friend, he was surprised by the news and didn’t believe the reports when he initially heard them. Then he asked her what happened to cause the split and she responded, “You know, I think right now, we’re better off as friends, we’re both working so much …” and went on to talk about how much work both she and Benji have been doing lately. She went on to deny reports that she dumped him and clarified that this was a decision they made together “as two adults”. She says that rumors that they broke up over Stavros Niarchos are “ridiculous” (explaining that reports of her “hooking-up” with Stavros was just a matter of her smiling and saying hello to someone she hadn’t “seen in a year”). She also clarified that Benji is not a jealous person, that no one cheated, that she never trusted anyone like him and that “there’s no one like him”. She told Ryan that things with Nicole Richie will stay the same, she loves the entire Madden family and refuted claims that Benji was “too controlling”, explaining that he just wanted the best for her (she also revealed that since she started dating him she stopped hanging out with certain people and going to certain places — and blamed those “people” for the false rumors about the break-up). As the interview came to a close, Paris told Ryan that she and Benji still “talk every day”, that they’re still close, that he’s bizzy working on the Good Charlotte remix album, that she is not considering dating anyone else right now because she still has feelings for Benji (dating a new person right now is “the last thing on her mind” and the thought of doing so “grosses her out”). Finally, she revealed to Ryan that she plans to spend New Year’s Eve in Australia hosting a party with her sister Nicky Hilton (a gig she was supposed to host with Benji).

I gotta say, Paris really sounded mature thruout this entire interview (click HERE to hear the interview in full for yourselves). She sounded hopeful that the couple could get back together again but, well, people do break-up for certain reasons … even tho she claims it was all about work, I don’t really believe it. Who knows, mebbe they will get back together again some day … but for now, they’re really officially dunzo.

‘Britney Spears: For The Record’ Premieres

But things don't go quite as smoothly as planned

Yesterday afternoon, MTV hosted a screening preview of their new documentary Britney Spears: For The Record here in SoCal and, I am sad to report, it doesn’t sound like things went off as planned. Firstly, MTV worked with a PR company called 1iota to fill the audience with fans and, apparently, over-booked the venue which could only hold 200 guests … sending out 300 tickets and then cherry-picking the prettiest people to seat inside for the screening — leaving a lot of invited fans outside and pissed. Secondly, Britney Spears showed up to surprise the fans by attending the screening with them (appearing for a taped segment that would be aired with the documentary on November 30) but, according to reports from fans who were at the screening, Britney looked entirely uncomfortable the whole time … and then left before answering any questions from the fans. All in all, it doesn’t sound like the screening event was that much of a success in person … it’ll mos def look pretty flawless once (and if) it airs on TV later on. Here is a pic of Britney making her way into the MTV studio for the taping yesterday and a couple of pics of Britney after she left the event early to grab a caffeinated drink at Starbucks:


Regarding the way that some fans were shafted at yesterday’s screening, I’m not really that surprised. These things happen all the time. PR companies tend to over-invite people in order to make sure they have enough people to fill seats AND they do like putting the prettiest people in prime positions, especially if they are filling an audience that will be recorded for TV. Now, about the way Britney acted at the screening … well, this has got me worried. By reading all of the fan reports (posted HERE), it does feel like she didn’t want to be there in the first place and was in no mood to interact with anybody — not a good sign. It is really beginning to sound like she is moving too fast with all of this work on her comeback, which can’t be good for her. If she’s not ready and still presses forward, she risks having another breakdown. At this point, I think it’s far too late for her to call things off completely but I am starting to get worried, especially in light of this new behavior. Regarding the actual documentary itself, despite the fan/Britney drama, it was screened yesterday and People magazine has a review of the 90-minute Britney Spears: For The Record film HERE.

Even still, Britney‘s manager Larry Rudolph insists that she is ready to make her comeback and spoke to People magazine about her readiness. After the jump, check out a new promo video for Britney‘s album Circus and read some of Rudolph‘s comments about Britney and her comeback … More »

George Clooney Shows Off His B-Ball Skillz

Also shows off his bad weave and porn'stache

George Clooney was spied shootin’ hoops all by himself while on location in Roswell, NM where his new film Men Who Stare At Goats is currently being filmed. As you can tell from the following pics, George didn’t even bother to get out of costume before he made his way to the basketball court — when you gotta play, you gotta play:


In Goats (which sounds totally weird judging by the name alone), Clooney plays a soldier named Lyn Cassady with really bad hair. In these pics, his new porn’stache that was grown specifically for this role doesn’t look as impressive as it did when we first saw it last month . Truth be told, I haven’t heard or seen anything that even remotely has me interested in this film … a porn’stache and sweet b-ball moves ain’t enough to get my ass to the movie theater. What else ya got, Clooney?

Matthew McConaughey’s New Best Friend

Someone's got a cute new pooch

Matthew McConaughey, who has recently returned to the SoCal area after falling off the map for a few weeks, was spotted this week enjoying some alone time on a beach in Malibu, CA. Well, he wasn’t actually all alone … he had a new friend with him:


No word on the pooch’s name but I suspect that the little guy was picked up so that Levi Alves can grow up with a family pet of his own. You may recall that this little dog was out with Matthew when he was photographed skateboarding last week … honestly, I thought the dog was just there and didn’t actually belong to Matthew. You know, I kinda like the idea of Matthew with a cute little dog like this … it looks like he is really becoming an honest to goodness family man now.

Gwen Stefani Has Her Arms Full At LAX Airport

She looks like she needs a vacation from her vacation

Gwen Stefani and her family have been spending the last week or so on holiday in Mexico and were recently spotted making their grand arrival back in SoCal at LAX airport this week … unfortch for her, tho, hubby Gavin Rossdale was nowhere to be seen and the duty of lugging the children, Kingston James McGregor and Zuma Nesta Rock, fell solely to her:


Aww … poor thing looks a wreck. Even tho she had a nanny with her, Kingston insisted on being carried by his mother — who was already carrying little Zuma. She’s got some pretty adorable children, tho, so I suspect that all of this lugging around was a labor of love for her. It’s great to have the fam back in SoCal once again.

Celebs Open Their ‘Hearts’ For UNICEF

Helping Gucci raise money for children affected by HIV/AIDS in Malawi

Various celebs made their way to The Plaza in NYC last night to attend an event to celebrate the Gucci launch of their new Tattoo Heart Collection — which is a limited edition collection of accessories that will benefit UNICEF‘s campaign to aid children affected by HIV/AIDS in Malawi. Here are a few pics from the event’s red carpet arrivals last night:


SMOKING-HOT songbird Rihanna teamed up with Gucci’s Frida Giannini last night at the brand’s Fifth Avenue store for the worldwide launch of the limited-edition Tattoo Heart Collection to benefit UNICEF. Twenty-five percent of sales from the handbags, shoes and accessories ($410-4,995) will benefit children affected by HIV/AIDS in Malawi and Mozambique. Items will be on sale through Jan. 31.

Madonna was in the hiz last night for the Gucci event (despite the fact that she just signed on to be the new face of Louis Vuitton for ’09) lookin’ pretty good … except for pretty much everything she was wearing. I mean, I love me some Madonna, but I think she’s wearing that Hawaiian grass skirt wrong. Rihanna, who is featured in the Gucci ads to promote the Tattoo Heart Collection, was lookin’ pretty fierce in her pretty dress. Blake Lively and Penn Badgley looked like they just showed up for the free eats. After the jump, check out three of Rihanna‘s Tattoo Hearts Collection promo pics … More »

Pete Wentz Talks Genitals To ‘Elle’ Magazine

Baby Simpson-Wentz still ain't here yet

Father-to-be (who isn’t a father just yet) Pete Wentz is featured in the new issue of Elle magazine where he talks very candidly about his sexual development (or lack thereof) … he also talks a bit about those infamous cameraphone P33N pics of his that made their way to the Internets a couple of years ago. Here is a new pic of Pete from this new issue of Elle along with a portion of his interview with the mag:


There were some smooshed little girl hearts littering the landscape last May when Pete Wentz, the bassist-songwriter for Chicago’s punky pop quartet Fall Out Boy, married Ashlee Simpson and soon after announced she was carrying a miniature headbanger due to drop any day now. The compact 29-year-old Wentz, with that trademark heavy eyeliner that made him look a little like Ranger Rick’s emo son, was off the market, and only one woman would be able to touch that bartskull tattoo on his pelvis … There would always be sweet memories of unwisely doffed jeans, cameraphone photos, and playful onstage boy-on-boy kisses, likely to disappear now that former preacher Joe Simpson is Wentz’s father-in-law. But no girl pop singer can stand between a swooning fan and her music—a good thing, since Fall Out Boy has just released its latest record, Folie à Deux.

ELLE: Do you remember your first sexual yearnings?
PETE WENTZ: They were for Cheetara, the girl from ThunderCats. She was really fast and had this baton that would extend.
ELLE: Are ThunderCats actually cats? Were your first sexual feelings for an animal?
PW: No, they’re aliens from the planet Thundera that land on a planet called Third Earth. I could get so nerdy on you.
ELLE: Did you have any odd misconceptions about sexuality as a youngster?
PW: I wasn’t sure where the girl’s genitalia sat compared to males. I wish I’d had GPS in high school because I had no clue where I was going.
ELLE: You did realize it was located in the groin area, right?
PW: Yeah, but I guess on a man it feels like it’s closer to the belly button. On a girl, it’s farther down. I’ll be honest: I was a superlate bloomer, and I was kind of a prude. I always wanted to be able to keep the number of people I’ve had sex with very low, because I never wanted to have to tell my future wife, “Oh, yeah, I was with 30 people.”
ELLE: You’re saying you wanted to keep your number under 30?
PW: Absolutely. I’m a bit of a tease. I’d make out with a lot of people but not go beyond that. Girls who actually don’t get you who were sure they could get you appreciate you on a different level. The ones who you don’t do it with keep calling you back.
ELLE: If you could have a do-over with any event in your life that involved a woman, what would it be?
PW: I wish I had never taken naked pictures of myself on a phone to send to a girl. It’s the worst thing ever.
ELLE: Well, admittedly, like millions of others, I’ve seen these photos. But if a picture of your penis is going to get leaked online, you could do much worse than yours.
PW: Oh, thank you. I appreciate that. But at the time, I wanted to find a cave and hang out there for the rest of my life and be a cave painter and eat dirt.
ELLE: I don’t want you to think I lingered on the photo, but I did notice that you looked groomed down there.
PW: The manscaping? Honestly, I felt slightly overgrown in those pictures. If I had taken them for public consumption, I would have done it differently—groomed a little closer, better lighting.
ELLE: So-called guyliner: What are the most common mistakes associated with it?
PW: Wearing it to the point where people only recognize you as “that guy who wears eyeliner.” I don’t really wear it anymore because of that.

LOL … Pete is awesome. I’m glad that he is finally able to talk about those P33N pics and offer a bit of jest. I understand the poor guy was really pretty destroyed when those photos leaked to the web … and I have to agree with the Elle interviewer, as far as P33N pics go — his aren’t too shabby ;)

Oh and about that baby that his wife Ashlee Simpson is supposed to be birthin’ … yeah, it ain’t here yet … so, to pass the time, Pete made his way out to a Borders bookstore in SoCal yesterday to pick up a few things to help him pass the time:


LOL … so while Ashlee was back at the hospital (or wherever she is these days) jumpin’ around to get her baby to come out of her, Pete‘s been bizzy shopping for books/DVDs/CDs. Love it. Hopefully we’ll be hearing of the baby’s birth soon … all this waiting is driving me crazy.
