Guy Ritchie’s Night Out With The Boys

Pals around with RDJ and the Jude'stache

Guy Ritchie may be going thru a rough patch right now since it was announced that he and soon-to-be ex-wife Madonna have decided to divorce after 7 1/2 years of marriage … but you wouldn’t know it to look at him out on the town last night. Guy stepped out for a guys night of fun with his friends Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law (who star as Sherlock Holmes and Watson respectively in Ritchie‘s new Sherlock Holmes movie) and the men looked like they were itchin’ to have some fun and mebbe get into a little trubs together:


Newly single Guy Ritchie was all smiles last night as he enjoyed his first night out since his split from Madonna. Director Ritchie, 40, was joined by actors Jude law and Robert Downey Jr for a trip to a private viewing of artist friend Sam Taylor Wood’s new exhibition at the White Cube gallery in London. The three had spent the day filming on location in London for Ritchie’s latest movie Sherlock Holmes, in which Law and Downey star. After a meeting at Ritchie’s London offices they then headed straight out to the gallery … And while his divorce has sparked a media frenzy Ritchie appeared to simply want to relax last night, refusing to comment on rumours surrounding the split.

HA! I love it! They look like a band of miscreant troublemakers. I have no doubt that once Guy is totally split with Madge (ie. once the paperwork is signed, sealed and delivered) he is going to get right back on the horse and dive back into the single life. If he keeps hanging around with these guys, I think Mr. Ritchie will have no problems finding new trouble to get into. By utilizing the power of RDJ‘s charms and the sexy prowess of the Jude’stache, this band of brothers could do some serious damage. I’m glad to see that Guy is able to depend on his bros in his time of need. I look forward to hopefully following their coming misadventures. I mean … seriously … can you imagine how much hawt trouble these three could get into? I mean the drunken nights alone together … Woot! ;)

Britney Spears Takes Her Sons Pumpkin Picking

A time honored tradition

Britney Spears, after picking up her sons from pre-school, took her children Sean Preston and Jayden James for an afternoon of fun at the Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in Beverly Hills, CA yesterday to enjoy some family fun together. You may recall that Mr. Bones is ground zero for Hollywood celebs and their children to pick out their annual Halloween pumpkins and yesterday Brit Brit and her boys got in on the action. Here are a few pics of her pre-school pick-up and their visit to the pumpkin patch yesterday, including one photo that was posted on Brit‘s official website:



Britney wanted us to get these exclusive pictures up for you guys right away! She just sent them and they’re amazing pics of Britney with Sean Preston and Jayden James at a pumpkin patch. Britney tells us that the boys jumped on the “jumpin pumpkin” trampoline while she watched and laughed from the doorway. They all had a blast! Of course the paps were everywhere, including one who was hiding in a tree (he looks a lot like the big rabbit on the pumpkin next to him!). After finding the perfect pumpkins, Brit and the boys headed back home — where I am sure they are making some awesome jack-o-lanterns! Thanks for the photos, Britney! They’re so cute!

Awww … so cute! I am really diggin’ these regular updates and photo exclusives from BritneySpears.com. I must admit, I didn’t really believe their claim that they would be offering insider updates on a regular basis because the same promises were made by previous official Britney websites with updates being released very few and far between. Since BritneySpears.com went online last week, we’ve already been treated to some great info (like news that she would be appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine and has begun work on a new dance routine for an as-yet unknown live performance or music video) and it looks like the updates will continue to come. Some might scoff that Britney is offering so much insider info (when she should be staying as private as possible) but it appears that she is well aware that her every move is chronicled anyway, so she might as well have control over of how some of the info is released to the public. She just keeps on, keepin’ on … and I’m glad that we’re allowed to be along for the ride.

Carrie Underwood Gets A Wax Job

Cuz the world needs another celebrity wax statue

Carrie Underwood is the latest celeb to have her likeness made into a wax statue for display at Madam Tussaud’s Wax Museum … unfortch for Carrie, tho, her statue was not made by the London branch of Madam Tussaud’s (which is known for their expertly flawless recreations) and was instead made by the folks at the Las Vegas, NV branch of the museum … which may explain by Carrie‘s statue looks like it has Céline Dion‘s face … EW!


Carrie was a good sport to show up for the unveiling of her wax likeness but if I were her, I’d sue. Carrie Underwood looks far prettier than her waxen doppelgänger … especially in these pics.

Who Is Sasha Fierce?

The truth is out there

For a few weeks now, we have seen messages popping up in advertising on posters, billboards and on websites (including right here on Pink is the new Blog) asking the question Who Is Sasha Fierce? Well, at long last, we finally have the answer. [Drum roll, please] It turns out that Sasha Fierce is none other than Beyoncé Knowles herself. Of course, anyone familiar with Beyoncé and her alter-ego nonsense knows that B has been, at times, calling herself Sasha for many months now … but at least now, we know her last name. Here are a couple pics of Beyoncé or Sasha Fierce (not sure which) making her way out of Cipriani restaurant in NYC with her husband Jay-Z last night:


The R&B singer has christened herself “Sasha Fierce” for her new double album, “I Am … Sasha Fierce,” due in stores on Nov. 18, and has released a lengthy justification for the comical moniker. “I have someone else that takes over when it’s time for me to work and when I’m on stage, this alter ego that I’ve created that kind of protects me and who I really am,” the former Destiny’s Child frontwoman said in a statement. “Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I’m working and when I’m on the stage.” Additionally, she has set up a cryptic MySpace page (http://www.myspace.com/sashafierce) that gives a “lucky person” the opportunity to receive a personal message and a gift bag valued at $500.

So … lemme get this straight. Beyoncé created an alter-ego to draw attention away to “protect herself” and is now telling anyone who will listen (and offering a cash prize to anyone interested in giving a damn) that the alter-ego is actually her. Clearly, Beyoncé would make an horrrrrrible superhero cuz she just can’t keep a secret. As you may recall, Beyoncé released 2 music videos recently … and one of them features Ms. Sasha Fierce. Methinks Mrs. Jay-Z has got way too much time on her hands.

’90210’: The T-Shirts

Make way for the merchandising

A few castmembers from the new CW series 90210 made their way out to the Kitson boutique in West Hollywood, CA last night for the red carpet launch of a new line of t-shirts that promote the show. Back in the early ’90′s, Beverly Hills, 90210 spawned a crush of merchandising options (from frisbees to dolls to perfume) and it looks like the new gang at West Beverly High are trying to get in on that action with a new line of stuff of their own. Here are a few pics from the red carpet arrivals at last night’s in-store launch event at Kitson:


I don’t personally think that the new batch of 90210 stuff is gonna be as popular as their predecessor’s merchandise but I can’t blame them for striking while the iron is hot. I think they might want to come up with better shirt slogans than Lacrosse Players Do It Better but the Team Silver and Team Naomi shirts are cute, if not inventive. If YOU are interested in procuring these 90210-themed t-shirts you can pop in to Kitson on Robertson Blvd. or order them online HERE. Never fear old skoolers, they’ve got a couple faux vintage BH, 90210 designs as well.

DJ AM Gets Back To Work

Adam Goldstein seems to be recovering nicely

Superstar DJ Adam AM Goldstein returned to his weekly club residency at Pure nightclub in Las Vegas, NV this week just about a month after surviving a fatal plane crash in South Carolina. As y’all know, DJ AM and Travis Barker were the only survivors of a private plane crash that claimed the lives of 4 people. In the weeks since the accident, both AM and Barker underwent various surgeries and have each been released from the hospital. Clearly, AM is recovering nicely since he is, once again, able to get behind the DJ decks and resume his weekly nightclub residency in Vegas. Here are a few pics of the very happy DJ doing his thang Tuesday night:


ADAM ‘DJ AM’ GOLDSTEIN has returned to the turntables at Las Vegas’ PURE nightclub a month after he was almost burned alive in a plane crash tragedy. The Los Angeles-based music man has a Tuesday night residency at PURE, but he has been unable to make the weekly trip to Sin City since his near-death experience on 19 September, which left four people dead. He returned on Tuesday. Goldstein made a triumphant return to DJ-ing last week when he performed as support to rap mogul Jay-Z at Hollywood’s Palladium.

I gotta tells y’all … it’s a mighty awesome sight seeing DJ AM back behind the decks doing what he does so well. It is really amazing that both he and Travis Barker managed to survive such a horrible experience and I’m sure both men are happy to have a “second chance at life”. I imagine that neither man is interested in taking anything for granted any longer. I’m very happy to see that DJ AM is back to work already so soon after his accident. Welcome back, AM! We’ve missed you :)

Is Beckham Planning A Permanent Move To Italy?

What this may mean for the LA Galaxy

Yesterday we got the first wind of the rumored report that David Beckham might be playing professionally for the AC Milan soccer team for four months next year during the US soccer off-season. It was reported that Italy was eager to have him and Becks was considering the proposition. But today, the LA Times reveals that in the melee of this furious sports story, the LA Galaxy was not even aware of what was going on. The paper suggests that all this talk of the Galaxy loaning out Becks to AC Milan was going on without anyone cluing in the management team of the LA Galaxy. Additionally, the Times piece argues that Becks should not be loaned out to the Italian team but should instead sever his ties with the LA Galaxy and move back to Europe permanently for the good of both the Galaxy and David Beckham. Here are a few pics of Becks and his most recent Galaxy training session in Carson, CA this week:


If David Beckham wants to play for England at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa he needs to leave Major League Soccer right now. Not on loan, not for just a short training spell with AC Milan or any other European club that comes calling, but for good — his own good and that of the Galaxy. Ever since AEG sounded the trumpets in January 2007 and announced amid much boasting and fanfare that it had signed Beckham, the Galaxy has been nothing but a puppet in the hands of Beckham’s management team. Just how emasculated the club is when it comes to Beckham was again clearly in evidence Wednesday. Stories were pouring out of Europe that AC Milan was close to signing the 33-year-old midfielder to a short-term loan deal during the MLS off-season. “We are speaking with his agent, but we believe he will arrive for some months on a free loan,” said Adriano Galliani, AC Milan’s vice president. “Beckham has chosen Milan. Our squad is ultra-competitive and it will remain this way, but Beckham is something different and intriguing.” Media reports across the continent were feverishly speculating on whether this could turn into a full-fledged trade, with Beckham returning triumphant to take his place again among the game’s elite players in Europe and abandon the experiment of trying to turn MLS from a soccer backwater into a soccer hotbed. Big-name players and coaches were quoted. Pundits rushed to get their opinions onto the Internet, on the air and into print. And the Galaxy? The Galaxy had no idea what was happening. Beckham opted not to be available to reporters after the team’s training session Wednesday in Carson, and no Galaxy official had the clout or the guts to make him face the media. The front office never even issued a news release. Bruce Arena, who wears two hats as the Galaxy’s coach and general manager, appeared bemused by it all. “I’ve spent not a second of my day even thinking about it, to be honest,” Arena said. “On the surface, it sounds like an odd proposition. I don’t see where that benefits MLS or the Galaxy. I don’t know if there’s anything true in the rumor.” Arena says that as far as he understands soccer’s rules, a player loan has to cover the entire period between two transfer windows, in this case from January to June, meaning that Beckham would miss the first three months of the 2009 MLS season. “The first I heard about it was today . . . but I would think [given] the position the Galaxy is in and [the fact that] we’re rebuilding our team and trying to have a successful year, it would seem very odd to me if we were loaning out our top players at the start of the season. It would seem pretty odd to me to operate that way.” … The only word from the Beckham camp came from Simon Oliveira of 19 Entertainment. “David’s intention is to maintain his fitness and keep himself eligible for England selection,” Oliveira said. “He very much remains a Galaxy player and he would be in Los Angeles for the start of the 2009 MLS season.” … Said AC Milan Coach Carlo Ancelotti: “For me, it will be a pleasure. Beckham is a serious athlete, a great professional.” … Beckham has long insisted that he wants to take part in the World Cup in South Africa and will do whatever is necessary to be on the England team. To do so, he has to prove that he still has what it takes at the highest level. That’s why a permanent move to AC Milan, if it can be accomplished, is in his best interests. As for the Galaxy, the Beckham circus could fold its tents and then the club could go back to being what it once was — competitive in MLS.

There appears to be a bitter tone to this LA Times piece … but considering that neither Beckham nor the Milan team actually denied anything seems telling. In the end, tho, the LA Galaxy does have Becks tied up in an iron-clad contract … one that they paid a lot of money for. I don’t think that they are interested in losing out on that investment. Whether that means they would not be amenable to the loan is another story altogether. While I can understand how David Beckham may want to prolong his professional soccer career in Europe, I don’t really understand why he would sign a multiyear, very lucrative contract with a US team and expect to still be able to play on European teams whenever he likes. At this point, the whole story is just rumor and conjecture. My guess is that if Becks is loaned out to Italy he will have to be back by the start of next year’s MLS season — or the loan deal won’t happen. If the LA Galaxy, who paid out all those megamillions, is stupid enough to loan out their star player at the cost of him missing out 3 months of US play then they are really very stupid, IMHO. There’s a lot of talk going on right now … we’ll have to see if any of it actually comes to mean anything.

Hugh Hefner Promotes His New Book ‘Mr. Playboy’

Takes his new twin girlfriends for a spin at a recent in-store appearance

80+ year old Playboy magazine mogul Hugh Hefner, flanked by his new twin girlfriends Karissa and Kristina Shannon, made an in-store appearance with author Steven Watts at Book Soup here in LA last night to promote and sign copies of the new book Mr. Playboy: Hugh Hefner and the American Dream. Looks like homie ain’t wasting no time introducing the world to his new “lady loves” since it was revealed earlier this month that Hef had broken up with former girlfriend Holly Madison (and, most likely, Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt). Here are a few pics from last night’s in-store appearance and a bit of information about the book:


“Mr. Playboy: Hugh Hefner and the American Dream” (Wiley, 544 pages, $29.95), by Steven Watts: In 1953, Hugh Hefner was a young man in Chicago with an unimpressive resume and big plans. He would start a men’s magazine geared toward young urbanites such as himself with lifestyle tips and racy pictures. He would call it “Stag Party.” A legal snag forced a last-minute name change to “Playboy,” but Hefner stayed true to the idea. The magazine quickly became a huge success and gave new meanings to the words playmate, bunny and centerfold. Hefner — with his pipe, his pajamas and a girl on each arm — became a symbol of the sexual revolution. But a symbol of what? Hefner is either the swingingest hep cat, a pornographer, a sexual liberator or a lecher, depending on the observer. Watts aims to give a full account of the man, his magazine and their place in social history. Hefner cooperated, giving the author access to everything from his personal scrapbooks to a 1972 memo from a Playboy administrative assistant on the Rolling Stones’ four-day romp at the old Chicago Playboy mansion (they left behind burned towels and clogged pipes; it’s unclear why). Watts presents Hefner’s life as a sort of X-rated Horatio Alger story. A boy growing up in the Midwest falls in love with the fantasy world of movies. As a young striver, he creates his own fantasy world with Playboy. Then he moves into the world he created, leaving a wife and kids for the swinging life. Watts argues that Playboy is more than a girlie magazine: It “comprised a historical force of significant proportions.” It’s arguable whether Hefner mostly made waves or rode them. But it’s clear that Hefner took seriously his role in offering a philosophy to counteract Puritanism. When Hefner calls himself a missionary, he’s not punning. Along with the naked women, Playboy early on featured the likes of Dave Brubeck on jazz, Evelyn Waugh on abstract expressionism and an interview with philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre … Oh, and Hefner really, really likes sex. Women come and go from his round bed like the sheets were made of Flubber. It just never stops. Even into his old age, the Viagra-fueled magnate stays on the prowl. Watts reveals that Hefner narrowly avoided an ironical death when he almost choked on a partner’s sex toy. A quick-thinking Playmate saved him with a chest compression.

… Annnnd, I think that’s enough info, thank you very much. The Playboy empire is a fascinating one and the man behind the Bunnies is just as fascinating. But when you see him now, as an 80+ year old man, clinging to 20-year old buxom beauties who wouldn’t touch him with a 10-foot pole if he didn’t have fame and wealth, well it’s just not as impressive as it may have been at one time. Don’t get me wrong, the man deserves props for living his life to the fullest and enjoying the zest of life for as long as he can. But sometimes, like with the introduction of these new twin sister girlfriends, I think Hef looks more foolish than pimpish. For his sake, I hope that the Shannon twins are schooled in CPR … you know, in case another one of those “choking on a sex toy” or worse incidents happen again.
