After returning home from her quick trip to NYC last week, Britney Spears made a beeline straight for her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James as quickly as she could. Britney, with her father Jamie Spears in tow, took her sons for a nice family dinner together at The Mondrian in Hollywood, CA last night:
But before Britney‘s dinner with the men in her life last night, she took some time for a little fun of her very own. Britters made the trek down to Anaheim, CA yesterday afternoon to do a little bit of go-karting at the Dromo One Go-Kart track … you know, just because:
I understand that a camera crew was with her at the go-kart track so we may see video of Britney‘s fun either online at BritneySpears.com or on the bonus DVD that will come packaged with her new album Circus, due for release on December 2. Yeah, this is the good-matured, clean fun that I love to see Britney partake of. While this sort of activity is meant to help clean up her image with the public, you know she is having a blast nonetheless. Britney is a big fan of go-kart racing (we’ve seen her engage in the fun activity many times before) and it just reminds us that she is still a young person yearning for fun. Good, clean fun. Love it.
Don’t forget, Britney‘s new music video for Womanizer will debut on ABC‘s 20/20 later on this week, make sure you don’t miss it!!

The re-Emancipation of Mimi
Mariah Carey was spotted enjoying a night on the town in Las Vegas, NV last night without new hubby Nick Cannon. Scandal!! I think that this is the first waking moment that Mimi ventured out in public without her young husband clutching to the hem of garment, following behind since the couple were wed back in May. Here are a couple pics of Mimi‘s red carpet arrival at The Bank nightclub (the site of Mario Lopez‘s pre-birthday party the night before) inside the Bellagio Hotel and Casino last night:
You know, I think it’s nice that Mariah and Nick have finally gotten out of the honeymoon phase and are starting to do things separately. I understand that Mimi is in Vegas this weekend to shoot her new music video which will be filmed at The Bank sometime today. No word on what Nick is doing but I can imagine it involves some sort of pining away on a tear-soaked pillow for his absent wife.

Jake Gyllenhaal, who has been out of the public eye for the past few weeks working on his new movie Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, emerged in London, England this weekend. Sporting a fleece jacket from 66° North (which is an Icelandic outerwear company, I might add) Jakey poo was snapped making his way out of Cipriani restaurant Friday evening … here are a couple of pics:
Woot! It has been far too long since we’ve laid eyes on our dear Jake and he is a sight for sore eyes. I love that he is rockin’ a fleecy jacket from 66° North. When David and I were in Iceland, we learned that 66° North is pretty much the dress code for any Icelander who needs to brave the weather in comfort and style. Glad to see that Jake is part of the fam ;) While I can appreciate that Jakey poo has prolly been hard at work on his new film, I’m glad that the lad deigned to come out of hiding to remind us of how much we (well, I, at least) totally <3 him. Hopefully this reemergence is a sign that he is back on the scene and won't be hidden away for weeks on end. Welcome back Jake, we (well, I’ve) missed you :)

Brangelina make a grand appearance at the New York Film Festival
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt who, as you may recall, relocated their family to NYC earlier this week made a red carpet appearance at the New York Film Festival in NYC last night for the premiere of Ange‘s new movie Changeling, directed by Clint Eastwood. Here are a few pics of the happy couple (and Clint) on the red carpet last night, which marks the first time Brangelina attended a public event together since the birth of their twins back in July:
Having landed in New York earlier in the week, Angelina Jolie arrived with Brad PItt and walked the red carpet at the New York Film Festival for Saturday night’s premiere of her movie Changeling, a 1920′s thriller directed by Clint Eastwood. Asked if she felt nervous to be back in the spotlight, Jolie told PEOPLE, “Not nervous as much as I just took a deep breath because it¹s been so long. It felt a little strange.” The Manhattan visit marks the first time since the birth of their twins, Vivienne and Knox, that Jolie and Pitt have been in the city with their children. “Everybody’s great,” she told PEOPLE. “The babies are getting big and healthy and developing personalities.” As for being in the city that never sleeps, Jolie, 33, said, “We are a little bit [sleep deprived]. We have some help a couple of nights a week, so on those nights we catch up on our sleep.” Still, as ever, she looked ravishing – decked out in an Atelier Versace dress, Sergio Rossi shoes and Mikimoto pearl earrings and ring – after a day of taking her three eldest kids (Zahara, Maddox and Pax Thien) to Lee’s Art Store midtown, while Brad went downtown to see photographer Jerry Spagnoli at his studio. “I run around with all the other kids, and I’m breastfeeding, which I think is a part of your body’s recovery,” Jolie said. “I feel great [and] feel very happy that they’re healthy.”
You gotta love that no matter her commitments, no matter how bizzy her schedule is, Angelina (and Brad, actually) makes sure to carve out time to spend with her children doing stuff that is fun for them. After the jump, check out a few pics of Ange and the kiddies making their way out of Lee’s Art Store early yesterday afternoon … More »
Hits the jackpot at 'The Bank'
Mario Lopez won’t turn 35 years old until October 10 but that didn’t stop him from getting the birthday party started a bit early at The Bank nightclub inside the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV last night. Flanked by a bevvy of blonde beauties, Lopez‘s entourage of all guys, including brothers and cousins, took over a corner table in the VIP section and partied till the wee hours of the morning. Here are a few pics:
I understand that shortly after midnight the DJ stopped spinning long enough to lead the packed club in singing Happy Birthday to the party boy as a flock of beauties presented Mario with a cake complete with sparklers (tho why “after midnight” I’m not entirely sure as his birthday is still days away). Mario was spied making out with a few ladies last night, so obvs he was partying as if it really was his birthday ;) After the pretty hawt shirtless pics of Mario Lopez that we got to see earlier this week, I think the least we can do is wish the man a happy pre-birthday!

Second time's the charm?
Shock jock Howard Stern took his second stroll down the aisle in NYC yesterday when he married his longtime girlfriend Beth Ostrosky in a private wedding ceremony attended by close friends. The couple announced their engagement on Valentine’s Day back in February of 2007 and then earlier this year decided to change the wedding site from the Hamptons in NY to Manhattan. Here is a pic of the newlyweds that was snapped earlier today:
Howard Stern and his longtime girlfriend Beth Ostrosky were married in New York City on Friday night, according to guests who attended the celebration. The guest list for the wedding, held at the restaurant Le Cirque, included Joan Rivers, Barbara Walters, Billy Joel and wife Katie Lee, Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman and Stern’s radio co-host, Robin Quivers. Stern, 54, and Ostrosky, 36, were joined in a ceremony officiated by Mark Consuelos, the husband of Kelly Ripa, who also attended. Billy Joel sang two songs, and Chevy Chase delivered a raunchy roast, said one guest. “Beth is the most beautiful bride I’ve ever seen,” said Stern pal Dominic Barbara. (Ostrosky wore Marchesa.) “The vows were from each others’ hearts. It was gentle and soft and beautiful. People were crying.” After 11 p.m., Joan Rivers walked out holding a bouquet of cream roses. “I danced with Howard,” she said. “The wedding was fabulous, everyone had a great, great time” … This is the first marriage for Ostrosky and the second for Stern.
It’s funny to think about Howard Stern being sweet and romantic enough to woo a lady into falling in love with him but, as they say, every person has a perfect match … hopefully for both Stern and Ostrosky, this match is right one. I am not really much of a fan of Stern‘s but I suppose congratulations are in order. Beth Ostrosky strikes me as a nice lady and I wish them all the happiness in the world together.

Dinner with famous friends in NYC
Angelina Jolie, who temporarily relocated her entire family to NYC earlier this week ahead of the New York Film Festival, made her first public appearance since giving birth to her twins (who were born on July 12) last night as she stepped out (sans family) to have dinner with Clint Eastwood (who directed her new movie Changeling) at Il Buco. Shrouded in one of her famous trench coats (mostly likely by St. John), Angelina looked divine as she made her way into and out of the restaurant:
Changeling will premiere at the New York Film Festival this week and is said to be Ange‘s attempt at Oscar glory. Having seen the movie trailer myself, I’m not entirely sure if the film is really up to par. Darion and I saw the trailer ahead of seeing Eagle Eye last weekend and I remember thinking it looked an awful lot like a Lifetime made-for-TV movie. In any event, it looks like post-baby rest time is over and Angelina is back to work. As I said, I think she looks great … even if the trench is a bit concealing. I’m sure she’ll be rocking something more revealing on the red carpet this week.

The walk of shame reveals true lurve
HMMM … it appears that a couple of 90210 co-stars have begun a romantic relationship off set and have been found out as a result of being caught in engaging in the walk of shame. Co-stars Jessica Stroup and Dustin Milligan (who play Erin Silver and Ethan Ward respectively on 90210) appear to be in a pretty serious relationship … and these smoochy pics are the proof:
To set the scene, Dustin was snapped leaving Jessica‘s place mid-afternoon this week after he enjoyed a little sleep-over at her place the night before. The couple swapped spit passionately before they had to part ways. Now, I’m sure it’s entirely possible that the couple sat up all night long braiding one another’s hair, baking cookies or some other such innocent activity but, more than likely, the two of them were bumpin’ uglies until the wee hours of the morning. In any event, it seems very likely that the two are romantically involved. Hey, if Blake Lively and Penn Badgley can have a real-life romance off the set of Gossip Girl then why can’t these two hormonal youngsters? I think it’s great that they’re found love on the set of 90210 … surely, they’re meant to stay together — forever.

The couple that shops together, stays together
Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie were spied doing a bit of shoe shopping together at Fred Segal in Santa Monica, CA this past Wednesday afternoon showing the world that it takes more than a commitment to love to keep a relationship going … sometimes it takes a little bit of retail therapy as well:
You may recall that Hilary was spotted with a new piece of bling on her ringfinger back in August and I wondered if she and Mike had gotten engaged — it would appear that they have not, in fact, gotten themselves engaged. The couple does manage to keep a relatively low profile (with only that nasty dad getting arrested thing coming to light to spoil their low profileness) which I think is part of their secret to success. I really like these two together … Mike looks like a sweetie and I bet he takes really good care of Hil D. The couple have been happily attached for some time now … as long as they keep shoe shoppin’ together like this, I think they’ll remain together happily ever after. How’s that for a Cinderella Story? ;)

Lookin' fine & dandy
Here are a few photos of Hugh Jackman lookin’ as dapper as can be for a new photoshoot he posed for in Sydney, Australia earlier today (yesterday, for us here on the US West Coast). It looks like David Beckham isn’t the only hottie that can fill out a slick suit very nicely:
While I find that Hugh Jackman doesn’t necessarily need clothing to look sexy, I find that he manages to look pretty damn good in whatever he wears. For men’s photoshoots, there really isn’t much that can be done stylewise … either the guy is dressed up (in a suit) or dressed down (in less than a suit) and mebbe you throw in a hat, umbrella, briefcase or (in many instances) a beautiful woman. With a hot piece like Hugh, it’s all about the man. Not only is his really, ridiculously good-looking but there is also an approachable appeal about him as well. I’m sure it won’t be long before we see these pics in a future issue of GQ, Esquire or other men’s magazine. I’ll deffo be on the lookout.
