Also denies dating Mickey Rourke
OK … I think I finally got it straight — On Friday we got word that Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood were dunzo … then on Saturday, we got a denial from ERW herself that the pair split — implying that they were still together but, on a “break”. Today all that confusion is cleared up as ERW clarifies that YES the couple are no longer together but NO they did not break up because of a tiff over her brother (as was first reported in the initial break-up report) or because he was “emotionally abusive”. So now the pissy tone of her official statement to People magazine on Saturday makes sense … she is upset that the couple are no longer together. She spoke to US Weekly and proclaimed that she will always “love” and “respect” Marilyn Manson despite the fact that they are no longer together. She also goes on to clarify that she is not dating her co-star Mickey Rourke either (spread the word). Here are a couple pics of ERW lookin’ an awful lot like a cheap imitation of MM‘s ex-wife Dita von Teese at the AFI Fest screening of her movie The Wrestler (which co-stars Rourke) at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre late last week:
Despite splitting with Marilyn Manson, Evan Rachel Wood says the rocker still holds a place in her heart. “I’m always going to love him and respect him,” she told Usmagazine.com Sunday at Hollywood Life’s Behind the Camera Awards in Hollywood. Asked how she is feeling, she told reporters, “I’m doing fine, you know, as best as can be expected.” She denied reports that they called it quits after Manson kicked her brother Ira out of his guest house. “You know, it’s not the nasty thing everybody thinks it is,” she said. “We’ve both got incredible things going on right now. He’s making an amazing album – I’ve heard some of it, and he should be very proud of it. You know, I’ve got [the upcoming drama] The Wrestler going on, and I’m focusing on that,” she added. Of the split, she said, “It’s not a bad thing. It’s life – it happens. But now, it’s like the story that comes right after the breakup [is]: Who am I dating now?” she said. “So right now, I’m just enjoying being on my own. It’s just not in the cards right now.” She denied reports that she is romancing Mickey Rourke, her co-star in The Wrestler. “Everybody thinks we’re dating, and we’re not. Spread the word – I’m not dating Mickey Rourke!” she said. “You know, we developed a close friendship. He’s a great guy, a talented guy. He’s been through it all, and [we had] such intense shoots, I think, because we played father and daughter [in The Wrestler]. I think he’s just kind of trying to take me under his wing.
OY! I’m so glad all of this nonsense has been straightened up. Despite the fact that she sounds like she is still pining for her lost relationship with MM, I think it’s best that she stay away from much older men … at least for a little while. I really hope she’s not getting involved with Mikey Rourke … he is like the ungoth but just as crazy version of Marilyn Manson. ERW is such an amazing actress … it’s a shame to see her running after the crazy sort of guys that she is so attracted to. I doubt that dressing like Dita von Teese is going to win back Mr. Manson … hello, he divorced her, remember? In any event, I wish her luck … with her taste in men, she’s prolly gonna need it.

Still goin' strong
Things appear to be coming along nicely for Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish who continue to (for the most part) quietly carry on their relationship. The pair, who coupled up after Ryan split from his wife Reese Witherspoon (tho rumored to have hooked-up while he was still married), have been happily together for many, many months now and altho they don’t take great pains to hide their relationship any more, they also don’t really work to show it off either. Here are a few pics of the very handsome couple as they made their way out of the Highland Night Club at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, CA last night:
I really think that these two make a great couple. They obvs care for one another and I’m happy to see that the Ryan has been able to find someone to make him happy. It can’t be easy for Ry to see Reese coupled up with the megahot Jake Gyllenhaal (trust me, it pains me to see it as well) but it looks like Abbie is adequately keeping Ryan‘s attentions elsewhere. If I had to guess, I think that Rabbie will make it down the aisle before WitherSpoon will … wouldn’t you agree?

Also, remains caffeinated and sexy
David Beckham and his eldest son Brooklyn Beckham did a bit of father/son bonding at the Staples Center this weekend as the pair were seen maxin’ and relaxin’ at yesterday’s LA Lakers home game together. Since we now know that Becks will be relocating to Milan, Italy for the first two months of 2009 to play professional soccer with AC Milan and, presumably, his children will remain here in SoCal with their mother to attend school — it looks like Becks wants to get in as much quality time with his kids while he still can. Here are a few really cute pics of Becks and Brooklyn snuggling at the game yesterday:
David Beckham enjoyed a bonding session with his son Brooklyn at an Lakers game in Los Angeles yesterday. The football star wrapped his arm tenderly around his eldest child, who looked delighted at having his father’s attention all to himself. It appears the nine-year-old, who is a keen footballer player, has has also inherited David’s famous penchant for grooming – his hair was carefully styled into a faux-hawk. The pair cheered on as their team defeated the Houston Rockets by the final score of 111-82 at Staples Centre. David is making the most of family time ahead of his move to Milan in January. He is set to join AC Milan on loan from his club LA Galaxy in order to maintain his fitness and his spot in the England squad. But while David decamps to Italy, wife Victoria and their sons will stay in America after the couple decided against uprooting the entire family.
Aww … seriously, aren’t these two the cutest? I’m so glad that Becks took Brooklyn to last night’s game because when last we saw Becks at the Staples Center to cheer on the Lakers, he was in much less cute/more undead company. Glad to see that he’s making the effort to hang with his kids while he still can.
Additionally, Becks was snapped making one of his famous coffee runs at Starbucks over the weekend:
I’m just amazed at how the man can make a plain white t and a pair of blue jeans look so good. He’s got a gift, I tells ya. I’m gald he’s happy to share!

Jennie Garth shows her opposition to Prop 8
She’s baaaaack! Shannen Doherty joined the cast of The CW series 90210 on set at the Gay and Lesbian Center in Hollywood this weekend. I assume that an upcoming ep of the show may have a gay storyline but it could just be that the center will merely stand-in as something else on the show. In any event, Shannen was proudly showing off a new dude on set but it was unclear what, if any, the state of their relationship is. Jennie Garth was also on set, proudly showing off a No on Prop 8 sign she got from the Gay and Lesbian Center to show her disdain for the discriminatory proposition’s passage here in California:
As we learned previously, Shannen was asked back to appear in two more eps of the series later on in the season and it looks like she’s begun work filming those eps. No word on if any other Beverly Hills, 90210 alums will be appearing on the spin-off this season but at least now we know that Shannen is back for sure. I just love that Jennie Garth has joined the chorus of celebs who are vocalizing (in whatever way they can) their opposition to Prop 8 in this State. I understand another round of protests are taking place today … and for the foreseeable future. A few Pink readers have asked if I knew of any planned protests coming up so I offer THIS link to a list of events that should be updated as new events are planned.
In any event, it’s great to see Shannen back to work again (we’ll see if this new guy turns out to be someone relevant) and to see Jennie be so awesome :)

Beckham. Victoria Beckham.
When last we saw Vicki B. she was uncharacteristically huddling in the backseat of a common taxicab after a long night of partying with her friends in London … today, we learn that VB has already returned back home to the US and was spied (pun intended) making her way thru LAX Airport this weekend covered from head to toe in a secret agent-like ensemble:
Perhaps VB is trying to make the gumshoe look the new thing in LA or mebbe she’s just ashamed that the world caught her using regular people transportation in London but in any event, Vicki B. is home, LA, home and prolly very happy to be back with her family. Who knows when next Agent Posh will be called up to service by the British Secret Intelligence Service again … until then, she’ll be in SoCal … right here waiting.

Here are a few pics of Ms. Xtina Aguilera being poured into her waiting car after a long night of whooping it up at the Chateau Marmont here in LA earlier this week. I’m not entirely sure but, it looks like Xtina might be a wee bit inebriated in these photos:
I mean … she could’ve just been tired and drowsy but … she could’ve also be smashed out of her mind. Whatever was going on with Xtina, I hope she had herself a good night … and a puke-free morning after.

An affair to remember
Sound the trumpets! Ring the alarms! Sienna Miller tells US Weekly that the illicit extramarital affair that she has been having with the very-married Balthazar Getty for the past half-year or so is finally over. Talking to the mag at the Hollywood Dominoes: VIP Launch in London, England this weekend, Sienna confessed her singlehood … before she got snapped creepin’ out of the Automat club in the Mayfair District with a new guy later on that night. It looks like Sienazar are dunzo, y’all!
Sienna Miller and Balthazar Getty have split, the actress tells Usmagazine.com. “I’m single at the moment, and I’m completely happy with that,” she said Friday at the Hollywood Dominoes: VIP Launch in London. “It’s nice not to have a relationship that the press constantly want to scrutinize and discuss. I’m cool with being on my own.” Miller and Getty’s romance first made headlines in July when Getty, 33 — who was married at the time — was photographed kissing a topless Miller, 26, on a boat in Italy. (Miller later sued two British newspapers and a photo agency for breach of privacy for publishing the steamy shots.) On July 21, the Brothers & Sisters star announced that he and wife Rosetta (with whom he has four children) were separated. “In light of the fact that many pictures have surfaced in print and on the Internet which has caused myself and my family great embarrassment, I felt it necessary to at least acknowledge publicly that yes indeed my wife and I have separated and I will not be commenting any further,” he said. In August, Miller’s home in North London was vandalized with the word “slut.”
As you may recall, Sienazar were snapped sucking face on the streets of NYC about 2 weeks ago … mebbe that rendezvous was their last hurrah. BUT, we can’t be sad for Sienna … no sir … for it looks like she has already moved on to greener (well, newer) pastures. Later on in the night, after telling US Weekly that she was single I understand that she was spied chatting up Josh Hartnett (and must’ve struck out?) and was seen leaving the club with some unknown dude who was sucking on a lollipop:
Don’t cry for her, Argentina … something tells me that Sienna Miller will be just fine.

A promise ring from Justin Gaston?
15-year old Miley Cyrus and her 20-year old manfriend and underwear model Justin Gaston (who we spied doing a bit of shopping together earlier this week) were snapped making their way to see a movie here in Hollywood, CA last night … and Miley made it a point to show off a new ring that she was wearing on her left ring finger:
Do any of y’all think that Miley is trying to tell us something with this new ring? Could it have been a gift from Justin? Mebbe he wants to make her his childbride? Mebbe this ring is merely a promise ring … or a chastity ring? Could it be that this ring is nothing more than a cheap piece of tin that she picked up at Claire’s? Is it possible that she is just effing with us?

The winds of change
Whitney Port, who is currently working on her new MTV reality series The City, was snapped in NYC this week lookin’ about as fashionable as she could as she fought her way thru the treacherous gale winds that hammered the city … behold:
I gotta say, Miss Whitney gets snaps for managing to keep it together stylistically despite having to battle the elements. As a SoCal girl, Whitney prolly isn’t that used to having to contend with the weather very much … but now that she’s relocated to the Big Apple for fashion and fame, she’s gonna have to learn how to deal. She looks great tho, I’m excited to follow her adventures to come in The City — for neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays this reality TV star from the swift completion of her appointed rounds of drama!

She bangs! She bangs!
Sarah Michelle Gellar was on hand with a few other “it” celebs of the day at the Juicy Couture Flagship Store opening event in NYC earlier this week. Sporting some pretty major bangs and a fur coat that looks liked it was made out of a litter of puppies, SMG was snapped on the pink carpet lookin’ ready for biz:
I dunno how I feel about SMG‘s new bangs. I think they look kinda cute on her but they seem a bit too long? I’m usually of the mind that SMG can do no wrong stylistically so I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt on the locks. The fur coat, on the other hand, gets a big poop sandwich from me. Irregardless of what one things about wearing fur on the animal rights tip, I think the look is really old … as in, grandma-looking. The coat she is wearing looks much better in THIS incarnation than it does on SMG. Let’s hope that the coat is actually fur and is merely tacky and not animal cruel ;) Do y’all like the bangs and/or the fur coat?
