"I knew that my princess needed her glass slippers and her castle"
Last week we learned that Kevin Jonas and Danielle Deleasa got hitched in NY and then shortly thereafter the newlyweds popped up on their honeymoon in Mexico (you may recall Kevin was rockin’ some shorty shorts). Today we get our first look at the couple’s wedding photo as featured on the cover of the new issue of People magazine:
Kevin Jonas and Danielle Deleasa’s wedding earlier this month was like a fairy tale – complete with a castle, an enchanted forest and glass slippers in the bride’s shoe size, a gift from the groom. “I knew that my princess needed her glass slippers and her castle,” Jonas told PEOPLE of the nuptials. “I always wanted my wedding to have that princess feel,” adds the new Mrs. Jonas. “I couldn’t have imagined this,” she says of her lavish wedding Dec. 19 at Oheka Castle in Huntington, New York. Despite a blizzard blanketing the roads around the castle, the wedding went forward without a hitch, and the bride, escorted by her father Thomas “Bucky” Deleasa, walked down the aisle to “Bella Notte,” from Lady and the Tramp, played on the guitar by a friend of the Jonas family. “I’m an Italian girl. It just fit me and my dad,” said Danielle of the song choice. The groom’s father Kevin Jonas Sr., an ordained minister, officiated along with Danielle’s childhood pastor, Rev. Ron DePasquale Jr. After reciting traditional vows, the couple exchanged Jacob & Co. wedding bands that they designed for one another. “I’ve never seen a more beautiful bride,” said Kevin of Danielle, who he calls his “Jersey Girl” and who wore a strapless tulle and Chantilly lace Vera Wang gown at the ceremony.
Uhhhhhh … glass slippers? Seriously? LOL … you know it was all his idea, too. I mean … yeah. Doesn’t it kinda sound like this wedding was orchestrated like a couple of kids who were playing “wedding”? HMMM. Well, whatever … as long as they are happy together, that’s really all that matters. Here’s to many happy years ahead for the happy couple … full of glass slippers and shorty shorts galore ;)
The cast of MTV‘s hit reality TV series Jersey Shore (minus Angelina Jolie Pivarnick who was booted off the show by the 4th ep of the series) are featured in the new issue of Life & Style magazine … and holy moly, they did they get make-overs! For the most part, everyone looks pretty fantastic … save for Paul Pauly D Delvecchio (whose horrible hair cannot be made-over to look good at all). Here the photo and some deets about their transformations:
Gelled hair, micro-minidresses, Ed Hardy emblems and muscle tees have become the signature look of the hit MTV reality show Jersey Shore. “My personal style is fresh to death,” Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio — famous for his ultraspiked hair — tells Life & Style. “Have you ever been to the supermarket? You know the produce section, like where the food is fresh? That’s my style.” But on Dec. 21, Life & Style gave these up-and-coming stars a fresh new image, inviting them to ditch the shore and step onto the red carpet at one of NYC’s most exclusive nightclubs, Greenhouse, which has a strict dress-your-best policy. There, they modeled the most iconic Hollywood looks of the past few years. And they pulled it off like the A-list pros — including Kim Kardashian and Megan Fox — they were emulating. “I like to walk into the room and have everyone notice what I’m wearing,” Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi tells Life & Style. Mission accomplished! Makeover’s from left to right: Sammi and Ronnie as the new Brangelina, Sexy ‘Jwoww’ as Megan Fox, Mike gets into a Jake Gyllenhaal ‘situation,’ Snooki is a mini Kim Kardashian, Vinny dresses as Justin Timberlake, and Pauly D has Taylor Lautner’s style.
I mean … wow. Jenni Jwoww Farley looks the best, by far. I gotta give it up to Mike The Situation Sorrentino cuz he cleaned up pretty nicely as well. This goes to show that clothes really can make the man or woman and lotta money goes a long way. I gotta say, I’m impressed. Which one of these kids do YOU think looks the best?

Reveals herself to NOT be a Lily Allen fan
Cheryl Cole, a member of the UK pop group Girls Aloud and one of the judges on Britain’s American Idol-like TV series X-Factor, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of the British music magazine Q. Here is Cheryl‘s Q cover and a portion of her coverstory interview wherein she explains just exactly why she is not very fond of Lily Allen:
One person Cheryl Cole will not be bringing good tidings to this Christmas is her famous foe Lily Allen. Rather than forgive and forget their run of public spats over the years, Cheryl has reopened their bitter feud in a no holds barred interview in which she made her feelings about the Smile singer very clear. The 26-year-old Girls Aloud star appears in the February edition of Q magazine in a hard-edge gothic-inspired cover shoot. With dark eye make-up, red wine lips, drenched hair and with a spiked metal ring, the X Factor judge shows she is a force to be reckoned with. In the interview, the star said she was unrepentant about branding Lily a ‘chick with a dick’ back in 2007. Cheryl made the comments on Gordon Ramsay’s F Word show after Lily had publicly branded her husband Ashley Cole ‘horrendous’ and her bandmate Nicola Roberts ‘the ugly one’. Speaking to Q magazine, she recalled: ‘She called my husband “horrendous”. ‘Then she called Nicola “ugly”. For another female artist to call you ugly is so awful. ‘Nicola’s been called “ginger” all her life, then she makes something of herself and everyone calls her the “ugly one”. ‘I feel very protective of her and if that means I’m going to call Lily “whatever”, then I don’t care.’ Cheryl also revealed that she initially thought Lily was being ‘complimentary’ in her 2006 B-Side track Cheryl Tweedy (Tweedy being Cheryl’s maiden name). The lyrics included the chorus: ‘I wish my life was a little less seedy / Why am I always so greedy? / Wish I looked just like Cheryl Tweedy.’ But Lily later commented: ‘I was being ironic. Nobody wants to look like that.’ Cheryl also told the magazine about her doubts over the band’s 2004 hit Love Machine. She added: ‘I remember listening to Love Machine and thinking, “We cannot put this crap out,” that’s what I said to the label: it sounds like something Busted would do. ‘Then it went to Number 2. I was, like, Oh right. OK. I’ll keep quiet.’ Speaking about her own solo debut, many [reviewers] have detected a wronged woman tone in the lyrics to songs such as Make Me Cry. ‘Well I suppose you’re drawn to a song because you connect with it in some way. Even the ones I haven’t written on. But nothing was written in context,’ she says. Today her superstar status is such that Cowell has granted her a 100 per cent pay rise between X Factor series. ‘Can’t complain about that’, she confirms. Gordon Brown and David Cameron have fallen over themselves to signal their endorsement. The former with a Downing Street photo opportunity last year, the latter proclaiming Cole the most fanciable one in Girls Aloud. But she doesn’t seem to be a fan of Cameron? ‘Brrrr! she grimaces. Slippery, isn’t he? ‘We’ve always been Labour in our family, it just feels wrong not to be. Better the devil you know.’
I’m certain that not many Americans know who Cheryl Cole is (or Girls Aloud, for that matter) but fans of British pop music should be well aware of her emergence as a solo pop star. I managed to get my hands on her debut solo album 3 Words and really like it. I’ve played some of the tracks for some friends and they have fallen in love with Cheryl Cole as well. I don’t expect she’ll ever make a splash here in the US (after all, Kylie Minogue is still relatively unknown here in the US) but I don’t mind admiring Cheryl from afar.

More boobies for you
We’ve already seen photos from Lindsay Lohan‘s very saucy and NSFW Muse magazine photospread (HERE and HERE) as well as a behind the scenes video that was shot on the set of the Muse photoshoot … but today, cuz one can never get enough of Lindsay Lohan‘s bare bubbies, are a few outtake photos from this photospread that just won’t quit:
SHE’S been in a few scrapes in her time, but this is the biggest mesh Lindsay Lohan has ever got her self into – and the sauciest, too! The Mean Girls actress donned a sexy see-through fishnet body stocking (and very little else) for a photoshoot and video that almost melted the camera lens. Keen-to-shock Li-Lo chose to pose in the doorway of a bathroom, toilet bowl in full view. In one shot she is seen, cig in mouth, with a half-naked male model falling at her feet and clutching her thigh … She has just returned from India, where she was filming a BBC documentary about the trafficking of women and children. And next year the actress, 23, will appear in the big-screen smash Machete – alongside legend Robert De Niro and action man Steven Segal. Lindsay plays April – a socialite with a penchant for guns. But the bolshie blonde is somewhat of a bad girl off screen too. She famously served 84 minutes of jail time in 2007 for drink and drug offenses. But as these washroom wonders show, Li-Lo has really cleaned up her act.
Okay … if you really, really want to see more of Lindsay‘s boobs, you can do so after the jump … More »
"Anybody can be fit. But you have to be patient."
Sean Faris, an actor you may not be too familiar with outside of his starring role in 2008′s Never Back Down (which also starred Gam Giganet pre-Twilight) but whom I’ve been a fan of since his days on the ill-fated TV series Reunion, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Men’s Health magazine … here is his coverphoto:
Many folks think that Faris looks like a young Tom Cruise, which I can see myself, but considering Tom‘s craziness of the past few years … I don’t think it’s a compliment anymore. After the jump, check out Sean‘s alternate coverphoto for Men’s Health along with some pics from his photospread and get to know the guy a little bit better … More »
'US Weekly' claims that Reese Witherspoon "broke his heart"
We first heard that Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon split up about 2 weeks ago and then just received confirmation of the split just a few days ago but yesterday, Jakey poo was spotted rollin’ solo here in SoCal in the wake of all the GyllenSpoon break-up reports. According to US Weekly‘s coverstory this week, Jake is nursing a “broken heart” because, they claim, it was Reese who called things off … not him. That being said, Jake was snapped at Ammo in Hollywood, CA yesterday lookin’ (I’m told) totally happy and ravenously hungry:
After nearly three years together, Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal called it quits in early December. “It broke his heart,” an insider reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. A source close to Gyllenhaal, 29, explains that the once-golden couple “fought constantly in the past few months,” and that the relationship concluded over a series of phone calls. Adds another source, “No one cheated. There was no drama.” After the pair met on the set of the film Rendition, their romance began in March 2007 — when Witherspoon, now 33, was still smarting from her 2006 divorce from husband of seven years Ryan Phillippe, 35, with whom she has two children (Ava, 10, and Deacon, 6). Indeed, sources say that her divorce and her kids were the two driving factors in the split. “She felt pressured to wed again but she wasn’t ready,” an insider says. “She couldn’t give Jake enough and she got cold feet. Jake wanted all of her. Although Gyllenhaal moved into her $5 million home in June 2008, Witherspoon struggled to quell her doubts about his suitability as a stepfather and long-term partner. “She really worried that they didn’t have enough in common,” the pal says. As a hands-on Mom, the “super-type A” actress also fretted over losing time with her kids to her boyfriend. “When she was giving all of her energy to Jake, she felt like she wasn’t giving her kids enough,” the source says. Not that Gyllenhaal didn’t try with Ava and Deacon, the insider points out: “He was great with the kids, but she felt like he didn’t get the whole scope of what that entailed.”
Of course, as with all of these sort of reports from “sources”, these details should be taken as merely conjecture (at best) or fabrication (at worst). Whatever the case may be, it would appear that we can finally be assured that GyllenSpoon have really called it quits and are each now single folks back on the market. I don’t believe that either of them will have much difficulty pairing up with new partners when they are ready to do so. Broken heart or not, I’m glad to hear that Jake has been lookin’ fine despite the split … mebbe it really was all for the best.

Also blasts her "deceptive" and "deluded" daughter on Facebook
Courtney Love, who we learned earlier this week lost primary custody of her daughter Frances Bean Cobain because Frances decided that she wants to live with her grandmother on her father’s side rather than her mom, is featured on the cover of the new issue of Dazed & Confused magazine … looking very much like living incarnation of the magazine’s name:
Oh, Courtney. In regards to losing custody of her daughter, C. Love posted a rant on her Facebook profile blasting her daughter as a traitor for choosing to live with her grandmother, Wendy O’Connor, rather than with her. After the jump, check out the rest of C. Love‘s Dazed & Confused photospread which, I must warn you, is pretty NSFW and read excerpts from Courtney‘s Facebook rant against her daughter Frances Bean … More »
"Nobody [helped me]. Really just music. And working."
Rihanna is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of GQ magazine and in her coverstory interview, Ri Ri talks about how far she’s come since she was assaulted by ex-boyfriend Chris Brown back in February of this year. She explains how she managed to get over the trauma of being physically attacked and expresses her hope that people who sympathize with her situation will be able to move past the incident like she has. Here is Rihanna‘s racy GQ coverphoto and some excerpts from her coverstory interview:
She’s done “Good Morning America” and “20/20,” but Rihanna gives one of her most revealing interviews about Chris Brown yet in the upcoming January issue of GQ magazine. The Barbados-born beauty fields some difficult questions about her abusive ex, but admits talking about that ugly incident helps the healing process. “It’s relieving,” she told the mag, “because it was built up for so long, and all these thoughts and emotions have been running through my mind for the past eight months. And now it’s like I finally get to let go and move on.” Putting the Feb. 8 assault behind her is crucial in shifting the “Wait Your Turn” singer’s image from punching bag to reigning pop princess. “I wanted people to move on with me,” she continues, “’cause the last big thing they know about me is That Night. And I don’t want that to be what people define me as.” After the violent attack last spring when Brown brutally hit and bit the singer following a pre-Grammy party in Hollywood, Rihanna withdrew from the spotlight to nurse her wounds. She soon returned to the studio and poured her heart and hurt into her latest album “Rated R,” which takes on a distinctly darker, edgier tone than her previous Top 20-friendly song “Umbrella.” “Nobody [helped me]. Really just music. And working,” she explains, “‘Cause I didn’t really want to be around anybody, for them to stare at me and stuff, and feel sorry for me. “The physical pain comes and it goes,” she adds. “The bruises fade away. But the thing that stays with you is the emotional scars.” The 21-year-old singer hopes her new album will inspire other women suffering from domestic abuse to stand up for themselves and get out of harmful relationships – especially those victims who might be blaming themselves. “That’s part of the insight that I wanna give,” Rihanna says. “Stop blaming yourself for that outcome. There’s nothing you can do, ever, to excuse a man’s behavior like that.”
It is very clear that she is becoming more comfortable with talking about her ordeal, which is a very good thing. I hope she continues to talk about her incident for as long as she likes in order to spread her message far and wide. As you can see, Rihanna stripped down for this GQ interview … but she also stripped down, literally, for the accompanying photoshoot. After the jump, check out a few photos from Ri Ri‘s GQ photospread and read a lot more from her GQ coverstory interview … More »

"I'm proud of it."
In October we learned the
sad news that Tara Reid would be posing for Playboy magazine and today we get our first look at her Playboy coverphoto for the massive January/February double issue. Reid, who once swore she would never pose for Playboy, now voices her pride for stripping down for the mag:
Tara Reid has overcome her botched plastic surgery insecurities by stripping down to pose for the upcoming issue of Playboy magazine. Dressed in a cropped tuxedo shirt, fishnet stockings and black lace bra, the “American Pie” actress seductively poses on the cover of the magazine’s “massive double” January/February issue. Despite previous reports the actress would be posing in the buff, Reid says she appears only topless in the pictorial. “I’m in my 30s now. I feel like I’m at the best age in my life, mentally, spiritually, physically, of how I feel,” she told WPIX Channel 11 News. “I’m proud of it.” However, the 33-year-old actress wasn’t always so proud of her body. A bungled 2004 liposuction procedure and breast augmentation left her with scars that she previously said would keep her from ever posing for the magazine. “I know there are problems with my stomach. There are bumps on it, it’s uneven, but it’s not that bad. My stomach scars are my battle wounds,” she told the magazine In Touch Weekly at the time. But now, Reid, who underwent reconstructive surgery in 2006 to repair the damage, is showing off her newfound confidence. According to the mag, the actress was reportedly nervous when she shot the pictorial in October at a private residence in Santa Monica, Calif. However, she became more comfortable as the day went on. “She was a bit insecure about her body when they first started,” said an insider. “She looked great and finally got into the groove.”
It is a happy day indeed when Tara Reid gets her groove back. I guess the old adage Never Say Never rings true once again. I truly hope this Playboy pictorial does good things for Tara‘s career … considering that she doesn’t really have a career anymore, it can only get better, right? I commend her for getting over the insecurities she endured after suffering her botched plastic surgeries but, to be honest, I’m not really all that interested in seeing just how confident she really is. Good for her for scoring Playboy‘s cover, tho. I guess dreams really do come true.
