Nothing comes between Rabbie and their Calvin Kleins
Here are a few red carpet photos of Abbie Cornish and Ryan Phillippe down under on Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour, Australia last night (today?) for a Calvin Klein promo event that she hosted. Rabbie were on hand for the launch of the Calvin Klein Spring ’09 Collection proving that the couple that promos together, stays together. The New York Post is reporting that the couple will remain in Oz thru the holidays so that Ryan can meet Abbie‘s family:
RYAN Phillippe has gone Down Under for Christmas and New Year’s. He landed in Australia on Sunday with his love, Abbie Cornish, whom he met on the set of “Stop-Loss” while he was still married to Reese Witherspoon. They’ll be on Cockatoo Island for a … party today before heading to Lochinvar to meet Cornish’s extended family. It’s the first time Phillippe, who spent Thanksgiving with Cornish and his children, Deacon and Ava, in the US, has been to Australia. His kids will be with Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal in LA and Tennessee.
HMMM … sounds like things are getting pret-ty serious for these two. It’s a big step to meet the extended family … it’s an even bigger step to meet them over the holidays. Rabbie is showing no signs of slowing down … to me, it looks like the couple are on the path to marriagehood. Irregardless of what you think about how the couple got together, I suppose it’s a good thing that they are so committed to one another and they look like they’re gonna be together for a long time. Tho, that’s what I thought about the Witherppe marriage and, well … yeah. In any event, here’s hoping the happy couple enjoys their time down in Australia and that Ryan won’t have to face any awkward questions about how he and Abbie ended up together. Ah, don’tcha just love the holidays?

Welcome to the World, Samuel Kai
On Sunday we learned that Naomi Watts gave birth to her second child, a boy, with babydaddy Liev Schreiber but at that time no real information was made available … we knew nothing other than the fact that the baby was the couple’s second child. Today we learn that the newborn has been named and we also learn how much he weighed at birth. Here are a couple pics of Liev with firstborn son Alexander Pete as they arrived at their NYC home after spending the day with mommy Naomi and little Samuel at the hospital:
Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber have revealed more details about their newborn son, starting with his name: Samuel Kai Schreiber. Samuel – the couple’s second child after year-old son Alexander Pete Schreiber – was born Saturday and weighed 7 lbs., 13 oz, the couple’s rep tells PEOPLE. “Both mom and baby are doing great,” the rep says.
The fiercely private couple are keeping as much information to themselves as possible but it’s nice that they deemed it appropriate to announce the baby’s name. I suspect it will be a very long time before we see the little guy out and about with his family but it is my sincere hope that mother and child are happy, healthy and will be able to go home as soon as possible. It really sounds like the Watts-Schreiber family are in for a very Merry Xmas this year as they’ve already received the best gift they could hope for. Congrats again!!

Joy to the World
Earlier this month we learned that Britney Spears taped a fun holiday segment for air on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and last week we got our first peek at a portion of the segment when a teaser video of Brit and Ellen singing the Xmas carol Silent Night was released to the Interweb. The whole segment airs today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show … or you can watch it in full here on the blog. Here are a few screencaps from the 2-part holiday segment that is scheduled to air on national television today:
OMG! LOL!!! You know anytime that Ellen is involved with a pre-taped skit, it’s gonna be funny as hell … throw in Britney Spears and you’ve got comic gold. Britney teams up with Ellen to do a bit of Xmas caroling in one SoCal neighborhood and they bring mirth, merriment, a few free Xmas trees and one Aretha Franklin to the folks they find at home. After the jump watch Parts 1 and 2 of the segment which are scheduled to air on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today … More »
That's a fetching headband you've got there, little Miss
Here are a couple pics of proud parents Nicole Richie and Joel Madden out and about this weekend with thier precious daughter Harlow Winter all dolled up in a very cute holiday-inspired Xmas outfit:
While this little girl DOES NOT need any embellishments to make her look adorable, I have to say that she looks beyond übercute in this little outfit. Additionally, the Madden brothers paid a little visit to The Bonnie Hunt Show and Joel brought along a couple of personal pics of Harlow (one with her uncle Benji) to share with the television viewing audience:
In their interview, Benji made the claim that Nic/Joel are the best parents ever to little Harlow and Joel responded by saying, “Its all because of her. She’s a very serious mom, you gotta work as a team. She runs the ship, she has everything laid out and she knows what she’s doing and she’s very serious about it. And it works out for me because I work and everything but I get to do some of the fun stuff, and break some of the rules and shes always keeping everything in order. She’s great.” I can absolutely believe that about Nicole‘s mothering skills. I really believe that they are really great parents. And I just love all this Harlowness lately … she’s such a cute baby. I can’t get enough.

How charming, indeed!
Over the weekend, Sharon Osbourne and the contestants of the VH1 reality TV show Rock of Love: Charm School convened here in SoCal to tape the reunion special for the show which is set to air next weekend. As some of you may be aware, Rock of Love: Charm School is a spin-off of the show Flavor of Love: Charm School both of which are spin-offs of their original shows Rock of Love and Flavor of Love respectively … which are spin-offs of even more original show Strange Love which spun off of The Surreal Life — AND there’s another spin-off called Rock of Love: Tour Bus on the way. Charm School is an series that attempts to teach former contestants class and lady-like poise … and Sharon Osbourne was chosen to be the host and model of class and lady-likeness. Yeah, contestant Megan Hauserman claims that Sharon O. attacked and injured her at the taping of the reunion show this weekend … which sounds about as classy and lady-like as one can get:
The LAPD is investigating an alleged brutal cat fight that went down between Sharon Osbourne and a contestant on the VH1 reality show “Rock of Love: Charm School” who ended up in the hospital. Megan Hauserman claims Sharon went ballistic during a taping of the show’s reunion special Saturday night — accusing Osbourne of running across the stage, grabbing Megan by her hair and refusing to let go. Hauserman claims Sharon (who is the host of the show) continued to pull and scratch until security eventually separated the two. Megan went to the hospital Sunday afternoon and filed a report with the LAPD on Sunday night. According to Megan, the whole thing started after Sharon took a verbal shot at her, and the Charmed School” contestant responded by telling Sharon she is only famous for managing a brain dead rock star — and then all hell broke loose. The LAPD says Sharon is a suspect in a minor battery. No charges have been filed. Calls to VH1 and Sharon’s management company were not returned.
I mean, if you are seriously looking to learn class and etiquette from someone like Sharon Osbourne, mebbe you do need to get the crap beat out of and the sense beat into you. Nothing at all about any of this surprises me in the least. In fact, as ridic as all of this sounds, I’m sure that Megan (who has already appeared on the reality shows Rock of Love, I Love Money and Charm School back-to-back) is kinda relishing the attention that she’s getting out of this incident. After the jump, check out the photo of Megan‘s injuries that she claims were caused by Sharon‘s attack on her person … More »
And by "man", I mean Zac Efron
Here are a couple of cute pics of Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron out and about yesterday in celebration of her 20th birthday. As you may recall, Vanessa was on hand to help Zac celebrate his 21st birthday back in October and was with him when he vacayed in Hawaii afterward … so it was Zac‘s turn to help her celebrate her birthday. The pair decided to keep things pretty low key … the most exciting thing they did yesterday afternoon was enjoy a quiet dinner together at one of their fave restaurants:
Don’t these two make a perfect couple? In fact, they make too perfect a couple which is why I’m always suspicious of the verity of their relationship … but, whatever the case may be, Zanessa do a really good job of taking care of one another. They’re practically inseparable and they do tend to look happy together. It looks like the pair enjoyed a really nice afternoon together … nothing too exciting for the big 2-0 but, then again, we have no idea how they celebrated last night. UGH, on second thought … I don’t think I want to know. Happy Birthday, Vanessa!

The spirit of giving
Heroes star Hayden Panettiere was on hand for a very cool in-store event in San Gabriel, CA over the weekend where she, in her capacity as Candie’s spokesmodel, went Xmas shopping with a few lucky girls from the Children’s Hospital in a charity promo event at a Kohl’s department store. Here are a few pics from this weekend’s event:
Except for the absolutely frightening Mrs. Claus above, the event looked like it was a lot of fun. I’m sure the girls from the hospital really enjoyed their shopping spree with Hayden. I really love how big companies and celebs themselves really get into the spirit of giving around the holidays. I guess we all get a little more generous around this time of the year … but I think it’s a really cool thing when celebs participate in events like this. Kudos and love goes out to Hayden, Candie’s and Kohl’s for organizing such a fun event. It’s seeing events like these that really help restore my faith in the humanity of celebs. Sure, Hayden‘s not saving the world but I’m sure this Xmas will be an extra special one for these girls. Well done!

Also wins 'Video of 2008' from Fuse TV
Our dear Britney Spears, who made her way to Japan last week, has been keeping herself pretty bizzy in the Land of the Rising Sun over the past few days. Her official site, BritneySpears.com and her Twitter profile, has been updating us fans with photos of her adventures and it looks like Brit Brit has been getting in some vacay time interspersed with her promo work. First up, here are a few pics of Britney strolling the streets with her assistant Brett Miller as they did a bit of shopping and eating together:
Ahead of her X Factor performance, Britney Spears was on a strict diet to ensure she looked her best – and munching on a tasty burger would have been unthinkable. But yesterday the Womanizer singer was seen heading towards a fast food joint as she spent the afternoon in Japan’s trendy Harajuku on a shopping spree. Spears went to the the Lotteria chain – which has a similar menu to McDonald’s – before hitting the clothes shops. Not only was she being unhealthy in her choice of food, but she was also seen smoking a cigarette to top off the blow-out afternoon. The 27-year-old sported a black and white coat over a green polo neck top and was accompanied by her assistant and security guard. Maybe decided to have a blow-out to celebrate the success of her latest album Circus, which went to number one in the U.S. album charts last week after selling 505,000 copies in its first week of release. And after being released [in the UK], it has become her fastest selling album in the UK to date. In addition to reaching Number One in the U.S., the record entered at the top of the charts in Brazil, Canada, Japan, Mexico and Switzerland.
Um, yeah … she deffo deserves to pamper and splurge a little, I’d say. But, it wasn’t all vacationing for Britney … she also had some work to do. Here is a pic of Britney performing Womanizer on the hit TV show Hey!Hey!Hey! last night:
Altho it was the same routine she’s been performing on other TV show lately, it sounds like the Japanese audience really enjoyed it. After the jump, check out some video of Britney‘s performance on the show … More »
Naughty or Nice?
The Hills stars and newlyweds (?) Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt spent part of their day yesterday doing a bit of Xmas shopping on one of the most paparazzi-friendly streets in SoCal — Robertson Blvd. in West Hollywood, CA. I sure hope they weren’t lookin’ to do some private shopping out of the public eye because … well … look at that, the couple got papped while trying to shop. Oh darn it. Well, at least Speidi were good sports about all the cameras trained directly on them … here are a few pics of the happilyweds (we assume) on their shopping excursion yesterday:
You gotta admit, these two really know how to have fun with their celebrity. They may be cheeseballs of the HIGHEST degree but at least they’re having fun with their notoriety. I don’t understand how they can pose for some of these photos with straight faces but … folks, they’re pros. Happy Holidays from Speidi to YOU!

Doing what she does best
La Toya Jackson, elder sister to Michael Jackson (who is just too weird for words these days), was spotted doing a bit of shopping around town in LA this week. Interestingly enough (or not), the last time we saw Toy she was also out doing some shopping. I wonder if this is all that she does anymore:
In any event … it is very nice to see a normal Jackson out and about to rep the famous family. I never thought the one-time black sheep of the family would be the one to be the standard bearer for the family that once ruled the airwaves but here she is, shopping her way to normalcy. I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for La Toya Jackson. She always struck me as the lamb that was led astray and, thankfully, found her way home again. While her more famous brother may be scaring the pedestrians that he comes across on the streets of SoCal, La Toya is just doing her thing. Keep it up, girl … and stay away from surgical masks, ya hear?
