A Dozen Miles

So, let me tell you about my Monday. Honestly, I expected the day to be a very quiet, very relaxing (ie. lazy) day. I didn’t plan on going for a run since I had the option to push my run back to today but something grabbed hold of me yesterday evening and, well, off I went. But before I hit the streets, I did my fair share of TV watching and was very happy to receive a delivery from my mailman. All in all, it was a very relaxing AND productive day for me ;) More »

‘Lost’ Star Matthew Fox Finally Gets Mug Shotted For His DUI Arrest

Back in early May we learned that former Lost star Matthew Fox was arrested on charges of drunk driving but at the time, we didn’t get to see his mug shot. It turns out that the police station in Oregon was dealing with a broken camera issue and Fox couldn’t be mug shotted. A judge overseeing is DUI case ordered Matthew to return at a later date so that he could pose for a proper mug shot, which finally took place this month. Click below to see Matthew Fox‘s DUI mug shot. More »

Anderson Cooper Thanks His Twitter Followers For Their Support

Yesterday, CNN reporter and talk show host Anderson Cooper came out publicly as a gay man. In the wake of the outpouring of support that he received on Twitter, Anderson posted a short but sweet tweet in appreciation of all of the messages he received. It should come as no surprise that Cooper is off on assignment this week so he’s a bit bizzy to be tweeting up a storm but he did take the time to share a quick message with fans, which you can read in full below.

5 Reasons To Love Emma Stone [Ir]regardless of How ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Turns Out

One of my Hollywood faves, Emma Stone, will play alongside her true-life boyfriend Andrew Garfield in this summer’s much-anticipated film The Amazing Spider-Man (in theaters NOW!). And I use the phrase ‘much-anticipated’ broadly— because many of us anticipate epic fails in abundance while others are legitimately excited to see what Emma and Andrew (and the rest of the cast) make of the story. This role represents something very different for Emma. While we still expect to see a little Stone-sian snark in the character of Gwen Stacy we also know that she’ll be a bit more reserved and vulnerable. The bottom line is that she’ll be a blond damsel in distress, and that’s not something we’re used to seeing from Emma‘s strong, outspoken characters.

Victoria Beckham Has A New Dolphin BFF

Victoria Beckham shared a really cute photo on her official Twitter profile over the weekend that I have to pass along with all y’all. Apparently she decided to take her children to a water park/aquarium here in SoCal and she posed for a photo with a very friendly dolphin. If you look *very closely* you can see a hint of a smile on Vicki B‘s usually emotionless face … which is clear proof that she was enjoying herself. Check it out. More »

Britney Spears & Jason Trawick Take Her Sons To Maui, HI

Our dear Britney Spears has been bizzy over the past few weeks with her duties as judge on The X Factor. Just last week, she made her way to Rhode Island for another round of auditions. As I understand it, Britney is getting a bit of a reputation as a hard judge (tho, these reports are scattered and inconsistent, emanating from fans who hear bits and pieces of her judging style at these auditions) which, I have to say, seems very interesting to me. The assumption has been that Britney would be a push-over judge (a la Paula Abdul) so I’m charmed by the notion that she’s more of a hard ass. Nonetheless, softie or hard ass, Britney needs a bit of a vacay from all the hard work she’s been doing … so she bundled up her sons and her fiancée Jason Trawick and made her way to Maui, HI for a little holiday.

James Franco Will Write For ‘Playboy’

James Franco has more jobs than a freelance writer. The actor/blogger/author/director/performance artist/grad student will soon add ‘Playboy columnist’ to his fairly impressive resumé. And I say ‘fairly’ because, I mean, it’s not like he’s doing everything. Just, like 99% of everything. And then some. Get deets on his new gig inside.
