Yesterday turned out to be the only day that David and I got to experience some of the amazing things about Chicago. Even tho we had to fly out late in the afternoon, we had all morning to enjoy some of the sights. I started my day early at 6AM so that I could enjoy a run in the city. Then, David and I attended the post-wedding breakfast hosted by our newlywedded friends Monique and Jay. Afterward, we met up with David’s BFF Alan who also happened to be in the city this weekend so, yeah, we managed to squeeze in a bit of fun before we had to fly back to LA. More »
Well that was fast. Less than two weeks after Katie Holmes stunned Tom Cruise with divorce papers after 5 years of marriage, Holmes‘s attorney has announced that a divorce settlement has been reached between the parties. As you may recall, Katie filed for divorce in the state of New York … she also made it clear that she was going after full custody of the couple’s only child Suri. Just a couple of days ago, we learned that the attorneys were working on a settlement — but I don’t think anyone expected the settlement to be made so quickly. The fact that a divorce settlement has been reached so quickly and that the settlement announcement is being made by Katie‘s attorney leads me to believe that she is getting exactly what she wants from this surprisingly quick divorce. Specifics about the settlement have not been made public but I am more convinced than ever that Katie Holmes is in control and she is getting everything that she wants from her split from Tom. Click below to read the official statement released by Katie‘s attorney Jonathan Wolfe and also read the joint official statement released by Katie and Tom. More »

The hype may have died down, seeing as how the movie’s been out since May but I recently read that Wes Anderson‘s Moonrise Kingdom is one of a handful of indie films still doing really well at the box office. The film is now in its second week of wide release and managed to gross an additional $4.6 million. Ok, and the truth is I just saw it Saturday night and I need to talk about it with you guys! Lovers of Wes Anderson/Bill Murray/all things quirky and wonderful meet me inside for a short list of things Wes Anderson/Moonrise Kingdom taught me.

Back in December we got our first look at the first movie poster released for the forthcoming Peter Jackson film The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey which, as you may know, is a prequel of sorts to the amazing Lord of the Rings trilogy of films. Today we get to check out a just released new promo poster for The Hobbit that will be officially unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con later this week. Altho Bilbo Baggins is the starring Hobbit of the film, this new poster features another character alone … the wizard Gandalf the Grey. More »
Gucci sheer on a swing set. Givenchy + models holding chickens. Rick Owens meets taxidermy. And an Alexander McQueen teeter totter experience like no other. You’ll understand why all of these things should coexist shortly. Sheer fashion magic/madness inside.
Um. Why didn’t anybody tell me that Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Julia Stiles and, like, eight of my other favorite people have a new movie coming out? I know, that’s supposed to be my job. Still, I’m in shock at how good this looks– mainly because Bradley Cooper is usually not one of my faves… but all that may change in a moment. Check out Cooper and Lawrence playing “crazy” in love, inside.
Many of us know that actor and Academy Award-winner Morgan Freeman was recently quoted as saying that Barack Obama is not the first black President, but rather the first mixed-race President. An interesting discussion went on in our comments over the nature of race and how we understand (and misunderstand) it in America. Oscar-nominated Director Spike Lee has now come out (in an interview unrelated to the conversation with Morgan Freeman) and declared that, should Obama lose, it will be the last time this country sees a black President for quite some time. I thought his statements worked in an interesting way alongside Freeman‘s. Check out bits of his interview with Vulture inside.
Molly is a film co-written and co-produced by Katie Holmes who is, by the way, divorcing her husband Tom Cruise. In case ya missed it. While Molly makes for an interesting project (because Katie will be playing a single mother, as she becomes one herself), it’s one of a few new things the 33-year old actress has lined up. I’m not sure, but between this news and that Elle magazine shoot, it seems like things are really about to go down with Ms. Holmes! Deets inside.
