A funny candid photo has surfaced from a pre-Oscars event last week that seems to show an interesting run-in between two celebs. One, a venerated and hugely talented Hollywood Icon of the highest stature … and Victoria Beckham. It’s unclear what may have caused the … incident … but this photo seems to show that Shirley MacLaine isn’t all that impressed by the likes of Vicki B. … so she decided to give her the stink eye:
If looks could kill, as they saying goes, then it’s fair to say oblivious Victoria Beckham wouldn’t have fared well in this exchange. Doyenne of the silver screen Shirley MacLaine looks down her nose as Posh waltzes out of a pre-Oscars party to her car. The celebrity showdown was captured last week outside Coldwater Canyon Park in Beverly Hills – although it’s not known what events led up to it. One thing is for sure, MacLaine – the Hollywood veteran – doesn’t look like she would have offered Mrs Beckham a Term Of Endearment. La Becks was heading with son Brooklyn for the car, but doesn’t appear to have stopped for a polite chat with Warren Beatty’s elder sister. Perhaps she didn’t recognise the 75-year-old who had made 28 films before she was even born. Well, she is new in town. The singer turned WAG turned successful fashion designer could possibly to do with brushing-up on who’s who in Hollywood.
Hahahahaha … you know, it’s totally possible that Shirley wasn’t even really giving VB any sort of sideways glance at all and the photo was just snapped at an inopportune time. It’s also entirely possible that MacLaine had no idea whatsoever who the frightfully skinny lady in the ratty fur-like coat was and had no intention of even deigning to look at her at all. Whatever the case may be, I suspect this speculation is much ado about nothing … but it’s still humorous nonetheless ;)

While the main castmembers of MTV‘s Jersey Shore are flying around the country living high on the hog at various parties thrown in their honor, estranged castmate Angelina Jolie Pivarnick is confessing to Life & Style magazine that appearing on Jersey Shore has ruined her life. Since she was asked to leave the show in season 1 (after only the third ep), she claims that the other JS castmembers have been hating on her big time. Oh No!
From insulting text messages to threats of violence, Angelina Pivarnick tells Life & Style her Jersey Shore co-stars have made her miserable since she left the show after three episodes. “I got a text from Mike saying, ‘Be prepared to get your ass beat, you pale rat bitch. Nobody likes you in the house,’” she reveals. “Jenni has been telling people she wants to beat me up, and Snooki says she’s going to beat me up too. I don’t understand why they hate me.” Co-star DJ Pauly D snubbed Angelina another way after hooking up with her while in LA for the reunion show. “The next night we went to a club, and he wound up hooking up with someone else right in front of my face!” she says. It’s even more hurtful because she left the show for her boyfriend, who broke up with her three months later. Still, the Staten Island native says she’d return for season two, which will take place in Miami. “Without a doubt, 100 percent,” she says. “Now I’m single — and I want to party again!”
Angelina is a hot mess. From her trash bag luggage to her annoying big mouth, it’s no wonder the other castmates can’t stand her. I can understand how they might all be a bit resentful that she wants to get back in on their good time after she shat all over it the first time to the point where she was asked to leave the show. But, it makes total sense that MTV would want to bring her back for the express purpose of stirring up trouble. Meh. I’m over it. She sucked before, she’ll suck again if brought back … I say, cut her loose … let her disappear into obscurity for good and bring on board another self-proclaimed guidette to take her place. If Angelina really believes that Jersey Shore “ruined her life” then she should look to sunnier pastures. Considering the leechy person she seems to be, I’m not surprised she’d be willing to come crawling back for a chance to taste fame again. I guess we’ll have to see if Angelina will really come back for Jersey Shore season 2 or if she is merely desperately grasping at straws at one last ditch effort at being famous.
Any Angelina fans out there? Wanna speak up for your girl?

Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston, rumored lovers and co-stars in the upcoming new film Bounty Hunter, are featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of W magazine. Here is our first look at their coverphoto and some deets about the accompanying coverstory:
Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler have laughed off reports that they’re romantically involved, but the “Bounty Hunter” costars sure look cozy on the cover of W magazine’s April issue. Shot on a ranch about 45 minutes outside of Los Angeles in mid-January, the 13-page pictorial featuring Butler and Aniston, both 40, consists of seven photographs by celeb shutterbug Steven Klein. Ironically, Klein also shot W’s infamous July 2005 cover featuring Brad Pitt — who had then-recently separated from Aniston — playing house with Angelina Jolie. For the April cover, on which hunky Scottish actor Butler wraps his arms around Aniston, the actress tapped into her inner fashionista and wore an Alberta Ferretti silk chiffon dress, Carine Gilson Lingerie Couture’s silk bra and silk lace briefs, Stella McCartney garters and Lanvin shoes. Total retail value for her outfit? $3,800! As for the inside pictorial, it’s called “Speed Trap: Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler do a little role playing in the searing heat of the California desert where damsels aren’t always in distress and lawmen sometimes break the rules.” Hmmm … role playing?
Yeah, yeah … they’re just friends. Whatever. And you know … these pics are hot and all but their Bounty Hunter movie still looks terrible. To be honest, I have zero interest in seeing their film. But, I wouldn’t mind checking out one more photo from this W magazine photospread … More »
A few weeks ago we learned that plans are in the works for a sequel film to the cult movie classic Showgirls which would, supposedly pick up where the first movie left off. Just about a week later, we learned that another Showgirls sequel was in the works which would feature a totally different storyline than that of the previously announced sequel. Are these two movies one and the same? Or are there two different Showgirls sequels on the way? To clear up the matter, original Showgirls actress Rena Riffel (who played Penny Slot/Hope) has released a public statement addressing the two sequels and clarifies what her involvement is with one of the two films:
“Some media outlets have been reporting and posting about a SHOWGIRLS follow-up feature called SHOWGIRLS 2, which I am not affiliated with, in any way, shape or form. I’ll admit, I was contacted by the German SHOWGIRLS fan-turned-’Hollywood director’ to star in his first feature film. However, it was so horrifically graphic and out of the show’s original story theme that I needed to withdraw from those talks. I am officially working on my own SHOWGIRLS follow-up feature film. Recently, I posted a short sequel “teaser” on YouTube, which I wrote and directed myself. The teaser is very different than my feature film screenplay, but I wanted to get the ball rolling and have some fun because everyone seems to be so excited, including me! My film is titled SHOWGIRL, being that I am the last and only “showgirl” still keeping that flame alive. It’s sort of a…”What ever happened to Penny Hope?” – fifteen years later, story. SHOWGIRL is my take on what becomes of a thirty-something year-old stripper who is still obsessed with dancing and fame. We are planning on shooting this coming summer and are still searching for a few of our leading and supporting characters to round out the cast. SHOWGIRLS’ fans will be pleased to learn that some of the original cast members have agreed to be in SHOWGIRL, and some of my MULHULLAND DRIVE cast members will appear as well. It is my hope to work with my SHOWGIRLS friends Gina Gershon and Elizabeth Berkley again too. And, I am even thinking about giving my former STRIPTEASE co-star friend Demi Moore a call. You could say I’m pulling a “Barbra Streisand.” SHOWGIRL is my YENTL, because I will be writing, directing and starring! We are securing major funding and working with top production talent, like the original post production team who did the original SHOWGIRLS. It’s pretty exciting and amazing. Stay tuned for more news coming soon!”

Well that clears up things nicely. The plan for Showgirls 2 seems entirely shoddy while plans for Showgirl, starring Riffel, sounds deliciously and terribly fun!! If Riffel does manage to get Elizabeth Berkley and/or Gina Gershon to cameo it would be A HIT (with fans, that is)!!! I am really excited … even if the movie is a bomb, I’d expect no less from a sequel to one of the best box office bombs of all time. I’m SO on Team Rena! The Showgirl must go on! To refresh our memories, check out the trailer for Rena Riffel‘s Showgirl after the jump … More »

Congratulations are in order for actor and TV host Mario Lopez and his Broadway star ladyfriend Corutney Mazza who have announced that they are expecting a child together! Lopez, a long time playboy, is going to be a dad, y’all … and while I would bet very good money that this pregnancy was unplanned, I’m certain that he and Mazza will be great parents. I’m not sure what I’m basing that belief on, exactly, but there you go. Here are deets and the official statement from Lopez about this happy news:
There’s baby news at “Extra!” Host Mario Lopez is going to be a dad. Mario and girlfriend Courtney Mazza made the exciting announcement today. “Courtney and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve waited my whole life to be a dad, this is a true blessing. I am looking forward to sharing this experience with my family and my family at Extra.” The two met in 2008 while working on Broadway in the show “A Chorus Line.”
Well, at least the dad-to-be has got the right attitude about this new phase of his life! Let’s send all our congrats and warm-wishes to the happy couple. Like Matthew McConaughey before him (who was a NOTORIOUS playboy before he became a father), perhaps this new child will help Mario Lopez find a new purpose in life … as a daddy :)
