Orlando Bloom, newlywed and soon-to-be dad, surfaced on the set of his new film and despite what you may think by looking at his costume he is NOT starring in a biopic on the life of Adam Lambert. No, Orlando is one of the 3 main stars in the upcoming remake The Three Musketeers. Here are photos of Orlando (and new wife Miranda Kerr) on set in Germany this week:
His on-screen character, the Duke of Buckingham, is probably more accustomed to the ink and parchment style of communication. But on the set of the Three Musketeers in Germany today, Orlando Bloom took things right up to date as he got a technological fix. The actor was spotted sending messages on his Blackberry phone, which made for an odd sight with him dressed in full 17th century costume. The Pirates of the Caribbean star plays the Duke of Buckingham alongside Christoph Waltz and Milla Jovovich in the new film directed by Paul W Anderson. Last week the 33-year-old father-to-be was delighted after his new wife Miranda Kerr joined him on the Wuerzburg set for a quick kiss and a hug. The smiling pair hugged and kissed in a break from shooting, with Bloom at one point whispering into 27-year-old Kerr’s ear. Bloom expressed his happiness at the baby news during a Munich photo call for the movie back in August. ‘I’m really excited about it, it’s great,’ he said, referring to the fact that he could be away for much of Kerr’s pregnancy. ‘I’ll go home as often as possible. She’ll come out here too.’ The Victoria’s Secret Model has previously had that she has always wanted to be a mother. ‘I’ve always thought Orlando would be a great dad,’ she said.
To be honest, I’ve never been a fan of the Three Musketeers tale … it’s just one of those classics that never captured my interest. In all honesty, I can’t say that casting Orlando Bloom in the film is going to make me want to see this film at all … but I’m sure Bloom will do a fine job in the film. He seems to do well in period costume piece films so this looks right up his alley.
Birthday Lurve goes out to Nicole Richie today as she celebrates her 29th birthday. Nicole and a few of her closest BFFs, including superstar DJ Samantha Ronson and singer Christina Aguilera, have made their way down to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for an extended celebration this week … which is where the ladies will be celebrating today:
Nicole Richie made sure to celebrate the final year of her twenties with a bang, by flying down to Mexico with her celebrity friends. As she turned 29 today, Richie partied with pals Christina Aguilera and Lindsay Lohan’s on-off lover Samantha Ronson. But the bash in Cabo wasn’t as wild as some of her previous parties and the mother-of-two looked to be having a relaxing trip by the beach. And her own birthday came just a couple of weeks after her son Sparrow’s first birthday, which she and partner Joel Madden celebrated at home with around 50 guests. Despite having had a wild reputation in the past for her partying and arrest for possession of illegal substances, these days Richie is more likely to be found spending time with Madden, Sparrow and their daughter Harlow, two. On the beach, the style icon hid her bikini body under a sheer purple kaftan. While fellow mother Christina Aguilera was barely recognisable in purple track pants, oversized sunglasses and a low riding hat … And Sam Ronson also dressed down for the casual occasion in baggy jeans and a loose red T-shirt.
It has been suggested that this summit of Nicole‘s female BFFs is actually a secret bachelorette party for a possible upcoming wedding (which, very conveniently, could be masked under the guise of Nicole‘s 29th birthday) but there has been no official word that this is actually the case. I would be remiss if I didn’t express my personal belief that it is quite possible that this holiday in Cabo is serving more than one purpose … but, with that being said, I think it’s important to focus on Nicole‘s birthday today and worry about the other speculation for another day. Let’s send all of our Birthday Lurve to Nicole today and our very best wishes for a great celebration in Mexico … no matter what the ladies may be celebrating ;)
UPDATE: Pink reader Lilian gave me the head’s up that the cat is out of the bag … Nicole and her lady friends did, in fact, celebrate her bachelortte party over the weekend together in Mexico. After the jump, check out the t-shirt that Xtina was wearing that confirms that fact … More »
Reality TV fans of the original Housewives series on Bravo TV The Real Housewives of Orange County might be interested in knowing that real househusband Simon Barney was just arrested on charges of domestic battery after he was involved in an incident with his estranged wife and RHOOC star Tamra Barney. Fans of the series will know that Simon and Tamra have been embroiled in a bitter divorce for some time now (at least since the last season of the show) and during a meeting yesterday to transfer guardianship of the couple’s dog, the alleged “battery” occurred … read on for all the deets:
“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Tamra Barney’s estranged husband was arrested this morning on suspicion of domestic battery, according to law enforcement sources. TMZ obtained Simon Barney’s mug shot. He’s in the process of divorcing Tamra, and sources tell us they were arguing over their dog when Simon allegedly threw the dog’s leash at Tamra and hit her wrist. Sources say Tamra called the police. Simon is still in custody … he’s being held on $10,000 bail.
If you watched the series from the beginning, like me, then you might remember how much in love Simon and Tamra SEEMED to be for quite a while. Once the family started to suffer because they could no longer enjoy their outrageously extravagant lifestyle, the cracks started to show and the couple’s relationship imploded … on national TV. I’m not at all surprised to hear that things have gotten so bitter between Simon and Tamra that she would have him arrested for slapping her wrist with a dog leash. And, to be honest, I’m really looking forward to watching this drama unfold on the upcoming season of RHOOC Yesterday we learned that Real Housewives of New Jersey hubby Joe Guidice turned himself into police to begin serving a 10 day jail sentence and now we’ve got Real Housewives of Orange County hubby Simon Barney in jail here on the West Coast. You gotta hand it to Bravo TV, they really hit the jackpot when they decided to feature these kinds of people on national television.

Yesterday morning we learned that Paris Hilton managed to plea bargain her way out of serving any jailtime for her recent cocaine possession arrest when she appeared in open court in Las Vegas, NV. Today we learn that as soon as Paris was adjourned from court, she boarded a private plane and flew her ass to Tokyo, Japan. But, I understand, upon arrival, Paris was taken into custody by Japanese immigration officials and was held for about 5 hours before she was allowed entry into the country:
The rest of Paris‘s entourage, including her less famous and more insignificant sister Nicky Hilton, were immediately allowed entry into Japan … but Paris, well, it sounds like the immigration folks wanted to have a few words with her. My guess is that because of Paris‘s very widespread notoriety, the immigration officials in Japan wanted to make sure that she was completely clean of any illegal substances before they let her into their country. I would assume that Paris Hilton was squeaky clean because after her 5 hour detention she was allowed entry into the country. It’s not entirely clear how long Miss Hilton will be in Japan but I certainly hope she behaves herself while she’s a guest in their country.
UPDATE: Paris Hilton has issued a statement via her press rep concerning her detainment by Japanese immigration officials. Find out what she’s got to say, after the jump … More »
In August we got confirmation that former Friends co-star and real life Courteney Cox-Arquette BFF Jennifer Aniston would be appearing in the season 2 premiere ep of Cougar Town. Just a few weeks ago we got our first look at Jen on the set of CT when the first batch of promo pics and the first trailer from the second season of the show were released. Today we get our first look at Jen in action with Courteney on the show in a new preview clip from the season 2 premiere ep which airs tomorrow night on ABC:
LMAO!! I seriously laughed out loud 3 times while watching this clip … it’s easy to see how the chemistry between Courtney and Jen is still very much intact and I cannot wait to see the pair in action on tomorrow night’s episode. After the jump, check out the clip for yourselves and try not to laugh … More »
In August we got to see the first promo video for Conan O’Brien‘s then untitled late night talk show, scheduled to debut on TBS this November.

Today we get to check out a very fun behind-the-scenes video from a recent photoshoot that Conan did for this new show … here are a few screencaps from that vid:

With less than a week away from the season 5 premiere of Dexter on Showtime, The New York Times has published a fantastic article on the show which features interviews with the cast, crew and makers of Dexter. Here is a photo of Dexter star Michael C. Hall and some excerpts from this new piece from the NY Times:
MICHAEL C. HALL plays a character who has, by his own count, murdered more than 60 people. He has also done battle, in a kind of Ultimate Serial Killing Championship, with a succession of bloodthirsty adversaries, one of whom turned out to be his own brother. So when Mr. Hall announced in January that he was undergoing chemotherapy for Hodgkin’s lymphoma — shortly before accepting trophies in January at the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild award ceremonies wearing a knit cap on his bald head — it was hard not to feel a shiver at the coincidence: the star of the Showtime series “Dexter,” the most death-obsessed show on television, contracting a potentially fatal disease at 38. For Mr. Hall, though, any resonance between television and real life was trivial. There was another parallel that struck much closer to home: his father’s death from prostate cancer at 39. “I think I’ve been preoccupied since I was 11, and my father died, with the idea of the age 39: Would I live that long? What would that be like?” Mr. Hall said last month, over breakfast at a restaurant off Los Feliz Boulevard. “To discover that I had the Hodgkin’s was alarming, but at the same time I felt kind of bemused, like: Wow. Huh. How interesting.” Mr. Hall received his diagnosis while Season 4 of “Dexter” was still being shot, and his calm, studied approach included keeping his condition a secret on the set until production had wrapped. He began treatment the next day, and the cancer is now in remission. (He turned 39 in February.) Production on Season 5 was in full swing when we spoke; his illness had caused no changes in the “Dexter” schedule, and he had even managed to shoot a movie, “East Fifth Bliss,” in the East Village during the show’s hiatus. His hair had grown back, and the only possible sign of concern for health was his breakfast order: a lonely cup of chamomile tea. If anything, he said, he felt an extra energy after the effects of the chemotherapy wore off. That could come in handy in the new season, which begins next Sunday night. Dexter Morgan, police forensics expert by day and avenging-angel serial killer by night, will be going through some big changes.

Victoria Beckham may have reunited with her hubby this weekend after an extended few days away but last week David Beckham had to rely on outside help to have bodily aches and pains rubbed away. Becks was spotted at a Thai massage parlor here in SoCal well after dark, well before his wife returned home to SoCal … I guess when a man needs a rub, a man needs a rub:
He could afford the best physiotherapy money can buy. David Beckham, however, prefers to be walked over for £26 an hour. The footballer was seen leaving a Thai massage parlour last week while his wife Victoria was away on business. His visit took place late at night in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice Beach, 14 miles from his home in Hollywood Hills. The upmarket Lamai Thai parlour where he was spotted markets itself as a reputable clinic that treats a variety of injuries. It is also a favourite of Mrs Beckham and the couple pay regular visits together. Masseuse Al Manomai treated Beckham last Monday. ‘David has visited the shop a few times,’ she said. ‘He wanted his leg and back worked on but told me to be careful of his ankle as he has an injury. I was standing on his back and we did a lot of stretches. He came in quite late though and didn’t have time for a cup of tea afterwards.’ Beckham left the parlour at 10.15pm wearing a beanie hat and was driven home by a bodyguard. Lamai Thai offers Derbyshire clients private massages in separate booths surrounded by green curtains.
Again, I’m not sure what sort of good deets were done in a past life to be so rewarded in this life but the guy who gets to rub David Beckham‘s body is a very lucky bastard. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again … I’ll do the job for free. Hell, I’d even pay. That’s a promise ;)

Ready for some pretty amazing news 90′s movie fans? According to Keanu Reeves himself, there is talk of making a sequel to the early 90′s films Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey! It looks like very soon we’ll be treated with another outing from Bill & Ted on the big screen:
Keanu Reeves has said that he is working with the original Bill & Ted team in the hope of making another film in the time-travelling comedy series. Reeves’s Bill & Ted co-star Alex Winter recently revealed that discussions were under way for a third movie, after Reeves himself had admitted that he was “trying” to bring the duo back to the big screen. Now, the 46-year-old has told MTV News that Winter and himself are in dialogue with writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon over the possible project. Reeves said: “We’re trying. Alex and I are still friends and we’re talking, and we’re talking to Chris and Ed. They’re going to try and see if they can write something. To me, I’d love to play the role. I’d love to work with Alex and Chris and Ed again. We’ll see what they do. I’m meeting people now – they’ve shown the film to their kids. We just seek to entertain.” The Matrix actor added that they would only work on the picture “if it’s a film that can stand up on its own”, before joking that he wanted German art house director Werner Herzog to take charge of the movie. Impersonating Herzog, Reeves said: “I was just pushed by the idea of this innocence being confronted by the nihilism of the world. And I thought that these two clowns could push our perspective of reality and truth to the forefront of meaning and knowledge.” The Bill & Ted movies tell the story of two Californian teenagers who travel through time in a phone booth after finding out that their rock band Wyld Stallyns is the key to the future happiness of the world.
OMG … I would seriously DIE if a new Bill & Ted movie gets made. I remember seeing the first two Bill & Ted movies when they came out originally (they were among the first films that I got to see with friends when we first started to drive) and I would absolutely love to see a new film. Will this new film show that Bill & Ted finally grew up? Or will Bill & Ted still be trying to find fame and fortune with their band Wyld Stallions? I, for one, am really anxious to see where Bill & Ted‘s time-traveling phone booth adventures will take them next … hopefully, away from having to travel by obsolete phone booth. This has to be the best news ever … I really hope that a new film will be made. Any Bill & Ted fans out there … this is great news, ain’t it?

Last week we learned that Lindsay Lohan failed 2 court-ordered drug tests and late Friday night, Lindsay herself admitted her drug test failure. Earlier today we saw photos of L. Lo making her way to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting last night which, I’m sure, her lawyers hoped would look favorable to Judge Elden Fox. Just moments ago TMZ reported that Judge Fox has formally revoked Lindsay‘s probation and has issued an arrest warrant for Lindsay in order to force her appearance in his courtroom Friday morning at 8:30AM … sharp:
Lindsay Lohan’s probation has been revoked and a bench warrant issued for her arrest … TMZ has learned. Although the bench warrant was issued, it’s being held — i.e., on hold — until Friday at 8:30 AM, when Lindsay is ordered to appear in court. The move by Judge Elden Fox comes after TMZ’s story … that Lindsay failed two drug tests recently … one showed the presence of cocaine and another showed amphetamines. The probation report — outlining the failed tests — was just filed with the court.
TMZ has also sniffed out the deets about Lindsay‘s other failed drug test. We already know that one test showed that she had cocaine in her system … now we learn that the other failed drug test showed that she had amphetamines in her system as well:
Lindsay Lohan’s second failed drug test involved amphetamines … TMZ has learned. We broke the story … Lindsay failed two drug tests — One for cocaine, and now we know the second was for amphetamines. Our sources would not divulge the nature of the amphetamines, but Adderall — the drug Lindsay was prescribed and hooked on — is an amphetamine. We do not know which test came first — the cocaine or the amphetamine. But we’re told both tests were taken close together. Lindsay failed her cocaine test the week before last.
And there you have it … Lindsay is now a wanted woman, again. She won’t be arrested unless she fails to show up in court on Friday morning. It is likely that Judge Fox, who has already revoked L. Lo‘s probation, will exact some sort of punishment as a result of Lindsay‘s 2 failed drug tests … but will he send her back to jail for 30 days as the terms of her probation insist? To be honest, it could go either way … he could hold her to the terms of her probation and send her off to jail on Friday morning OR he could show leniency and send her back to rehab. What do y’all think will happen? Better yet, what do you think SHOULD happen when Lindsay goes to court to answer for her crimes this Friday?
