The Paley Center for Media here in Los Angeles hosted a special night of their annual PaleyFest in honor of the amazing Showtime series Dexter last night. Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, Julie Benz and more came out to the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills, CA to participate in the on-stage panel last night and everyone was lookin’ fine. Here is a group shot of the Dexter stars who came out for the PaleyFest event last night and some POSSIBLY SPOILERY deets from their discussion … read on at your own peril:
Is it September yet? With six months standing between now and the season five premiere of Dexter, I tried to pry some serious scoop out of Michael C. Hall, Julie Benz, Jennifer Carpenter and the rest of the gang—begging didn’t work, and neither did bribing!—and while they were tightlipped, I did manage to learn a thing or two about what’s to come while moderating the show panel at Paley Fest Thursday night. We also learned how Michael’s health is now, and watched him and his real-life wife Jennifer answer a question about their marriage for the first time. Spoiler Alert! If you have still haven’t seen the Dexter season four finale, please look no further. All of what you’ll see after the jump will definitely ruin it for you. Here are the highlights you Dexter fans need to know …
After the jump, read some of the spoilery deets that were discussed last night (courtesy of E!) and see a bunch of really fun photos of the individual castmembers in attendance last night … More »

On Wednesday we got our first listen at the new Hole single Skinny Little Bitch which was made available for free download at NobodysDaughter.com. Today, altho the free download opportunity is over, we get to check out the single cover artwork for the track:
In case you missed hearing the song the first time, you can stream Skinny Little Bitch on Hole‘s official My Space profile. As I mentioned before, IMHO the song sounds very 1996 … nothing too special but by no means horrible. It’s actually much better than I thought it would be. And I think this cover artwork matches the song perfectly. I’m more interested in hearing other songs from this new Hole album. I remain cautiously optimistic that the album will impress more than we thought … we shall see.
Kirsten Dunst is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of V magazine lookin’ all kinds of old skool Hollywood glam. Ki Ki is lookin’ very much like silver screen starlet a la Jean Harlow or Marlene Dietrich in this beautiful new photospread shot by famed fashion photographer Mario Testino. Here is our first look at Kirsten‘s V magazine coverphoto and a bit of a tease of her coverstory article:
“THE ART OF BEING KIRSTEN DUNST” Hollywood’s bored and beautiful blonde has become an icon for a generation, but this year it’s all about reinvention. Art muse, rising director, even serious dramatic actress—you can be anything when you’re Kirsten Dunst. Inside V MAGAZINE (issue #64) Dunst discusses her unique friendships with both the Mulleavy sisters of Rodarte and Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami as well as her upcoming long-awaited film All Good Things. V64 hit newsstands today.
Kirsten‘s V article is not online just yet but after the jump, you can see a batch of absolutely beautiful photos from her V photospread. I’m not kidding, IMHO these photos are among the most beautiful of Kirsten Dunst ever published — check ‘em out after the jump … More »

In January we learned that the big screen adaptation of the classic DC comics series Green Lantern, which stars Ryan Reynolds in the lead role, will begin filming this month. Today we learn that the film will be jumping on board the hugely popular 3D bandwagon and will be filmed in 3D:
What kinds of green constructs test pilot Hal Jordan dreams up to fight the darkest evil of the galaxy in Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment’s “Green Lantern” may remain in doubt, but one thing is for sure for the 2011 superhero film: it will hit screens in 3 Dimensions. A Warner Brothers representative has confirmed for CBR that Martin Campbell’s “Green Lantern” will bow in 3D in 2011. Starring Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively and Mark Strong, the action film based on the classic (and currently chart-topping) “Green Lantern” series begins filming shortly in New Orleans. As CBR reporter earlier today, it appears as though test shooting will soon be underway for the film, though more details about cast, plot and how the movie will tie in with a proposed “Justice League” picture remain unconfirmed.
Woot!! As a big fan of 3D films, I am ALL for this news! Green Lantern, and his magic ring, is sure to bring the FX fun to the big screen … how awesome will it be to see his superpowers extend out of the screen and into the audience?! Oh yes, I am really excited now. I can see it now … the big battle scene between Green Lantern and Sinestro — ring vs. ring — exploding before our eyes in digital 3D. If they do it right, and I’m certain they will, Green Lantern in 3D will be really very cool. I’m also really excited about this proposed Justice League movie … it makes sense that it would be worked on concurrently with other DC superhero films like Green Lantern. All of this is very good news to me. Ugh … how will I be able to stand the wait? The film hasn’t even begun principal filming yet.

Earlier this week we learned which celebs will be competing on the upcoming 10th season of Dancing with the Stars — including the AMAZING Shannen Doherty — and today we get to see the celeb contestants’ paired up promo photos each with their professional dancing partners:
“Dancing With The Stars” has slots to fill. Every season, they try to make it seem like they’re choosing “stars” based on their immediate relevance and for variety, but every season, you’re reminded that they have a limited number of types who are cast, and the new season, announced during Monday night’s finale of “The Bachelor,” is no different. The most controversial name is Kate Gosselin. She’s there to be the polarizing one. Like Tom DeLay, Denise Richards, and Kim Kardashian before her, Kate is there strictly because some people will recoil at the sight of her. Her dancing ability is a closed book for the moment, and notoriety is unlikely to get her to the final stages of the competition, but her name recognition should keep her safe in the opening rounds. The “Dancing” raid of the “Beverly Hills, 90210” dressing rooms of the past continues with the appearance of Shannen Doherty. Doherty must surely be the Moby-Dick for producers who have spent previous seasons settling for her onetime co-stars Ian Ziering and Jennie Garth. Her reputation as a buster of chops precedes her, much as distant rumbling precedes an invasion by Godzilla, so many will tune in to see whether she can be made to tango properly or will simply bite off the head of her partner. (She will also undoubtedly hope to outlast her long-ago ex-husband Ashley Hamilton, who lasted three days on the show last season.)
OMG … Kate Gosselin vs. Shannen Doherty … only on reality TV, folks … OY! As I mentioned before, I don’t watch DWTS but now that they’ve cast Shannen for the new season, well, I’m gonna hafta watch my girl kick ass now won’t I? After the jump, check out the rest of the Dancing with the Stars Season 10 promo photos so you can size up the competition for yourselves … More »

Tiger Woods, who is out of rehab and reportedly back home with his family, was spotted hard at work on a golf course near his home this week hittin’ a few golf balls to, presumably, get himself back in playing shape. It’s unclear when exactly Tiger is planning his return to professional golf but the fact that he is back to practicing again might be a clue that his return might be sooner rather than later:
Tiger Woods is golfing like a man possessed — hitting ball after ball after ball at the golf course near his home in Isleworth … and TMZ has obtained the first unstaged photos of Woods back in action. Woods hit the course yesterday with 2 male companions and practiced his ass off from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM — working on everything from drives to pitches and putts. We’re told Tiger’s session was uninterrupted — and he seemed completely focused throughout the entire grueling workout. As we previously reported, sources in Isleworth tell us Tiger is dead set on competing for the Tavistock Cup — which will be held at the same Isleworth golf course where he’s practicing.
It sounds like Tiger‘s got a plan. Now that he’s made his public apology, now that he’s back home with his family, now that he’s back to practicing on the golf course … he’s bound to be anxious to get back to the business of professional golf. As I’ve said before, time heals all wounds … in a few months, his scandal will be a thing of the past … in a year, it will be all but forgotten. His road to redemption starts now.

The biopic The Runaways won’t hit theaters for a couple of weeks but right now we get to hear actresses Kristen Stewart (who plays Joan Jett) and Dakota Fanning (who plays Cherie Currie) singing the Runaways hit song Cherry Bomb!
I gotta admit … they sound pretty damn good. I’m guessing their vocals were autotuned to perfection for the soundtrack but still … they sound like the real Runaways. After the jump, check out a couple new promo photos from the film and listen to the song Cherry Bomb, as sung by Fanning and Stewart, in full … More »
Yesterday we saw photos of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie taking the twins and tomboy Shiloh Nouvel out for some ice cream in Venice, Italy and today we see that it is the older boys’ turn for an outing. Brangelina took their eldest sons, Maddox Chivan and Pax Thien, for a day of art appreciation at the Venice Palace … behold:
I suppose when you have as many kids as Brangelina does, you can really take them out for meaningful outings in shifts. Yesterday it was the twins, today it’s the boys … tomorrow the girls? Whatever the case may be, the entire Brangelina brood have totally taken over Venice — and they just got to town! I’m thinkin’ we’ll be seeing a lot more of them (in various configurations) in the weeks to come. How fun!

Whitney Houston, who is currently on tour in Australia where she has been WOWing the crowd (well, not all of the crowds) on her Nothing But Love World Tour, took some time during her concert stop in Adelaide, Australia to wish her daughter a Happy Birthday on the concert stage. Bobbi Kristina was brought on stage where she was surprised with a birthday cake and a serenade from her fabulous mother:
Whitney Houston added two new songs to her set during her concert Wednesday in Adelaide, Australia. Halfway through the show, during the “unplugged” portion when Houston, 46, performs old hits, she announced it was her daughter Bobbi Kristina’s 17th birthday, a source close to the singer tells PEOPLE. Houston then sang “Who Would Imagine a King” from The Preacher’s Wife. “[It's] one of Krissy’s favorites,” the source says, “and is not in the show.” Then a birthday cake was rolled out on stage, and Houston invited her daughter to come up, joined by her dancers and another tune – “Happy Birthday,” which was sung by the entire audience. Mother and daughter also celebrated the occasion in Sydney earlier in the week during a stop on the singer’s Nothing But Love world tour. “They rented a beautiful boat and took a four-hour cruise all around Sydney Harbor with Krissy’s friends, the dancers and family members,” adds the source. “That was the pre-birthday celebration. The cake at the concert was a complete surprise to Krissy. She had no idea!”
How sweet! Now this is one of the perks of having a DIVA as a mother … she can wish you a Happy Birthday unlike anyone else can. It looks like Bobbi Kris had herself a very special, really wonderful 17th birthday … thanks to her loving mother Whitney Houston. Love it!!
UPDATE: Pink reader Marcus sends along video of Whitney Houston singing to her babygirl Bobbi Kris for her birthday, check it out after the jump … More »
