Ryan Reynolds Talks NY Marathon

Run, baby, run

Newlywed Ryan Reynolds, who recently got hitched to his ladylove Scarlett Johansson in a supersecret wedding in Canada in September, was on hand at Tavern on the Green in NYC yesterday to answer questions at a press conference ahead of tomorrow’s 2008 ING New York City Marathon. At yesterday’s press event, Ryan talked about why he was running in the race this year for the first time but, more importantly, was lookin’ all kids of hawt while doing so:


Among the 40,000 expected to pound the New York City Marathon’s 26.2 miles of pavement tomorrow is “Mr. Scarlett Johansson.” Actor Ryan Reynolds, a newlywed since September, is in his first marathon to raise $1 million for Team Fox’s research into Parkinson’s disease, which afflicts his dad. Reynolds called the race “26.2 miles of physical humiliation and searing psychic pain” and training for it “the purest form of hell I could ever imagine.” But despite recent bronchitis and some injuries, he waxed confident, what with Johansson among the cheering throng. “Who knows? I could be a head, a neck and a stump when I finish,” he said.

Kudos goes out to Ryan for taking on such a Herculean task like this, especially since he’s never done it before. I can’t even imagine coming close to pretending to partake in a 26+ mile run … or walk for that matter. I suspect that, with Scarlett cheering him on, Ryan will put for this best effort to help raise funds for his charity of choice. Good luck, Ryan … we’ll be cheering you on!

Holly Madison Moves On With Criss Angel?

Upgrade? Downgrade?

Master illusionist/magician Criss Angel was on hand to host the gala premiere opening of his new magic show, Believe, at The Luxor Hotel And Casino last night. The show is the latest to be produced by the folks from Cirque de Soleil and promises to offer an experience that, according to the show’s official website, “transcends any preconceived notion of what it means to be emotionally engaged by the arts of mysticism and illusion. Imagine a fantasy, an allegory, a highly theatrical tableau of mood, reverie and emotion set against a backdrop of dreamlike darkness and light.” Oh and in other news, Criss showed up with former Hugh Hefner girlfriend Holly Madison on his arm … and on his lips:


I understand that Holly and Criss claim that they are “just friends” but we’ve all heard that line before. Other former Hefner ex-girlfriend Bridget Marquardt revealed to US Weekly that Holly and Kendra Wilkinson (the third ex-Hefner girlfriend) have already moved out of the Playboy Mansion … which is perfect timing should Holly want to move in with her friend Criss Angel. I’m not sure if this new hook-up will actually turn into anything of substance but I can’t really decide if Holly has traded up or traded down. On the upside, Criss Angel is about 50 years younger than Hugh Hefner. On the downside, he’ll prolly never be as pimp as Hef used to be … so … thoughts?

Heidi Klum’s 9th Annual Halloween Par-tay

Oh my Goddess!

Yesterday afternoon we saw a couple pics of Heidi Klum out and about on the streets of NYC with her hubby Seal rockin’ an awesome Barack Obama mask but lest you think that that was the height of the couple’s Halloweenness here are a few pics of Heidi and Seal at her 9th Annual Halloween Costume Party which was held at 1 Oak nightclub last night. Heidi got all dolled up as Kālī, the multi-armed goddess of death and destruction … you know, cuz Heidi likes to keep it simple. Check it out:


Heidi looks pretty amazing … as I may have mentioned previously, homegirl really goes all out for Halloween. I’m not entirely sure what Seal was dressed up as … Sinbad the Sailor perhaps? I mean, he looks a’ight but can anyone look great in a costume standing next to Heidi lookin’ like this? You may recognize the little person in the photo with Heidi in the last pic … yes, it’s Cruella de Vil but it’s actually Project Runway season 5 winner Christian Siriano. Christian was joined by Project Runway season 1 contestant Austin Sacrlett who dressed as a Japanese kabuki actor:


Heidi Klum ain’t playin’ around when she invites you to her Halloween parties … you come prepared or you don’t come at all. As always, Heidi turned it out. Looks like a pretty awesome time.

Halle Berry Dresses Down For Her Latest Role

Not Halloween related

Halle Berry was spied on the cold street set of her new movie Frankie and Alice last night which is currently filming in Vancouver, Canada … and she didn’t look dressed for the weather. While other celebs were playing dress-up last night (some in a fun way, some in a lame way) for Halloween purposes, Halle was playing dress-up for work purposes. Here are a few pics of Halle on set last night:


Set in the 1970′s, Frankie and Alice tells the tale of a young woman suffering from multiple personality disorder … which causes some strife for the African American woman because one of her personalities is racist. Um, while the premise does sound a bit comical, I’m sure the drama will be a serious effort rather than a comedic one. Halle looks pretty damn good in this skimpy little outfit, I gotta say. I’m diggin’ the hair … and the Foxy Brownness of her character overall. She looks hawt, y’all.

Heidi Klum Steps Out … With Barack Obama?

Shh! Don't tell Michelle

Heidi Klum was snapped on the streets of NYC scandalously and brazenly holding hands with Senator Barack Obama! Has the good Senator from Illinois given up on his bid for the White House in order to hang out with the Project Runway host instead?


Hee hee … actually, Heidi was actually walking the streets of NYC with her husband Seal underneath that Obama mask. As some of you are well aware, Heidi Klum very famously throws a huge masquerade ball each Halloween and it looks like Heidi and Seal were running around taking care of a few last minute things before the big to-do tonight. I can’t wait to see what these two will be dressed like tonight. That being said, Heidi and Barack make a hawt couple.

‘Grad’ To See You, Lance Bass

Lamest Halloween costume ever?

Lance Bass stepped out on the town last night showing off his idea of a cool Halloween costume. Homeboy wore a red graduation cap and gown …


… which, I gotta say, is prolly the most uninspired and lazy Halloween costume I think I’ve ever seen a celebrity wear. It’s not even timely nor does it really relate to anything. Boo. It’s a disappointing showing from my boy Lance … here’s hoping he comes up with something more inspired, more impressive for Halloween tonight.

The Spederline Kids Get In The Halloween Spirit

Everyone's all a-buzz

Kevin Federline was on hand today to pick up his children with Britney Spears, Sean Preston and Jayden James, from their preschool here in SoCal today — and the boys were already dressed and ready to get the Halloween fun underway. You may recall that Britney has been the one who was picking up the kids from school for the past couple of weeks but today’s Halloween pick-up fell to K-Fed. Here are a few pics of The Federline and his sons — dressed as adorable bees! — at their school earlier today:


Awww … they are so cute! I just love Britney‘s kids … they have grown into such adorable little boys. These bee costumes are TO DIE FOR! I gotta say, I really wish it was Britney who was the one to pick up the kids today but K-Fed looks kinda decent in these pics. We have no way of knowing what the Halloween plans for the Spederline kids look like but I hope they will be able to spend time with both of their parents tonight … wouldn’t that be a nice way for them to enjoy All Hallow’s Eve?

Les Beckhams Go Pumpkin Pickin’

In fine SoCal style

David Beckham, who we learned earlier today is now officially signed up to play professional soccer for AC Milan in the MLS off-season next year, took his family to a pumpkin patch here in SoCal yesterday so that they could pick out the perfect pumpkins to carve into Jack-o-Lanterns this Halloween season. As you can tell by Becks‘s attire, it’s been hot here in SoCal despite the time of year:


Seriously, the man can make even a trashy tank-top like this look really sexy. I’m not sure if we’ll get to see any of the Beckham bunch dressed in their Halloween costumes but I’m sure Becks and VB have got fun plans for their kids tonight. I gotta say, I’m really gonna miss having Becks here in SoCal for the couple of months he’ll be away in Milan, Italy so I’m just gonna have to enjoy him while we still got him.

‘Spring Awakening’ Opens In LA

The tour rolls into town

The hit Broadway musical Spring Awakening had its red carpet opening here in LA last night at the Ahmanson Theater. This touring version of the show, whose last stop was San Francisco, CA, has made its way to LA and premiered last night. Here are a few pics from some of the red carpet arrivals last night:


As you can see, some castmembers from The CW‘s 90210 came out for last night’s premiere. You may recall that the fictional kids at West Beverly High put on a performance of Spring Awakening at their school this season on the show. Interestingly enough, none of the 90210 actors who came out for last night’s premiere were actually involved with the fictional staging of the musical on 90210 (Jessica Lowndes‘s character Adrianna was supposed to play the lead but had to be replaced after she got cracked out on drugs … on the show). David and I were very lucky to attend last night’s premiere opening and I’ll have my review in my TV Guide post later in the day. While the group of celebs who came out for last night’s opening wasn’t necessarily stellar, there were a lot of fun people in the hiz to enjoy the fun last night. Spring Awakening will run at the Ahmanson Theater until December 7.

Sarah Jessica Parker Gets Involved In The Political Process

And YOU can, too!

Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker reported for duty at the NYC Headquarters of the Obama/Biden campaign last night to man the phone banks for a few hours in order to make calls on Obama‘s behalf to undecided voters. Not content with just showing up for the glitzy Hollywood fundraisers, SJP rolled up her sleeves and got down in the trenches with other committed Obama campaign volunteers:


I think it’s very impressive for someone like SJP to put her money where her mouth is (in this case, literally) and actually work for a campaign like this. It is very easy for celebs to just show up at fundraisers, donate money and be on their way but you gotta respect the celebs who care enough to actually put in an modicum of effort to work on a political campaign like this. I’m happy to report that my BFF Sarah will be donating some of her time this Sunday to volunteer for the Obama/Biden campaign in her Dearborn, MI neighborhood. The presidential campaign is getting down to the wire and folks are really stepping up in the last days to try and make a difference and bring much needed CHANGE to this country. It’s not too late for YOU to get involved in your neighborhood:


Click HERE to find out how you can get involved in the Obama/Biden campaign in these few remaining days. Having worked on previous political campaigns for the Democrats, I can assure you … it’s an insanely rewarding experience. Can’t volunteer? Click HERE to make a donation to the Obama/Biden campaign and receive a One Voice can Change the World t-shirt! Get involved, make a difference :)
