Actress Renée Zellweger made an appearance on the red carpet Monday night, stepping out into the public eye for the first time in a long time, and because she looked noticeably different (so different that she was practically unrecognizable to many folks, in fact) she generated a lot of discussion about how different her face looks these days. Yes, as with all things, many comments were made on the Interwebs that were less than complimentary but, for the most part around here on PITNB, the discussion was mostly focused on the surprise of how different Renée looks. In response to the amount of conversation Zellweger generated by showing off her new look in public, she spoke to People magazine about her new face … and you can read her comments below. More »

Sigh. In early September, we learned that the Dallas Cowboys officially signed Michael Sam to join their practice squad after he was let go from the St. Louis Rams football team. Today we learn that the Cowboys have decided to cut Sam from their team as well. Michael, as you might be well aware, became the first openly gay player in the NFL earlier this year but now … he’s teamless again :( More »

Remember a couple of weeks ago when Sarah Jessica Parker hopped on new rumors about a reported third Sex and the City movie when she staged an impromptu photoshoot of her shoe line on the steps of the NYC apartment building that provided the facade for Carrie Bradshaw‘s home in Sex and the City? Well, it turns out that that impromptu photoshoot was actually an unauthorized photoshoot. The owners of the home have put up a chain across the steps of their building to keep fans from taking photos there … which is exactly what SJP did without asking. Chain or no chain, Sarah decided to stage her photoshoot anyways … and the home owners are now really pissed off. More »
Last week, Blake Lively debuted her baby bump publicly on the red carpet at The Golden Heart Awards and last night, she took her growing bump for another spin on the red carpet at the Angel Ball event at Cipriani Wall Street. This time, Blake and her bump were joined by hubby/daddy-to-be Ryan Reynolds. Click through the gallery to see this beautiful little family looking like love personified. You can tell that Ryan had a hard time keeping his eyes off his beautiful pregnant wife. They look so great, don’t they?
Back in February of 2012, we first learned that Mattel was producing a line of prop hoverboards that look like the hoverboard that was featured in the 1989 film Back to the Future II (ahem, I may have one of those prop hoverboards in my closet right now) but today we learn that a company has actually created a fully functional hoverboard that they hope to put into full production. As it stands right now, the Hendo Hoverboard only hovers about an inch off the ground … but it does work. A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to help raise funds for further development in the hopes that hoverboard technology can actually exist in real life like it does in fictional movies. Click below to see photos of this working hoverboard, learn a bit about the Kickstarter campaign and check out video of the damn thing in action. More »

Renée Zellweger surfaced last night for the first time in a while on the red carpet of Elle magazine’s celebration of their annual Women In Hollywood issue and as you can see in the gallery presented here, Renée no longer looks like herself … at all. I tried to think of something clever to say about Renée‘s inexplicable new face but I truly don’t know what to say. I mean, you can kinda see the Renée we used to know in these photos but only if you squint and try real hard to see it … it also helps that we’re told that, YES, this is actually her. So, uh … yeah … what is there to say? Renée has a new face that she wanted to show off on the red carpet last night so … thoughts?
Last night I met up with my friend Gillian and her little girl Gemma at Disneyland for Mickey’s Halloween Party and we had so much fun. I’ve never been to any of the ticketed Halloween parties at Disneyland over the years (primarily because I never saw the point to paying extra to attend a function at the theme park on top of what I already pay for my Annual Pass). But, since I’ve been in a crazy Disney way this year, I figured … yes, I must go. The party is the only time Disney allows everyone to wear costumes in the park and they provide free candy, character meet and greets and entertainment that is exclusive to this event so it was all very new for me. Gillian dressed up as Alice, Gemma dressed up as Merida and I dressed up as Anakin Skywalker (just before he turned into Darth Vader) and we had a blast. More »
Last week we learned that Nine Inch Nails has been nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the class of 2015 in its first year of eligibility. Yesterday, NIN‘s debut album Pretty Hate Machine turned 25 years old, which is why NIN is eligible this year for induction into the Rock Hall. 25 years. Again I am floored by how quickly the time has passed. Earlier this year, I marveled that two of my all-time favorite albums — Tori Amos‘s Under The Pink and NIN‘s The Downward Spiral — turned 20 years old this year. Now that I’m faced with the fact that another of my all-time fave albums is celebrating a milestone anniversary, I find myself floored with wonder again. More »
