Britwick did some shopping at Fredric Man and it seems very clear that Britney is having an influence on Jason‘s dressing habits. He looks quite fetching in his plaid shorts, don’t you think? The fact that these two are shopping together and helping one another dress is very telling. I can’t help but believe that this is Britney‘s healthiest relationship ever … and I hope it lasts forever. Long live Britwick!
Hold on to your hats, Dancing with the Stars fans … because according to OK! magazine, Mike The Situation Sorrentino from MTV‘s Jersey Shore has signed on to compete in the upcoming new season of DWTS. Now, this news has not been confirmed as true just yet but OK! seems pretty sure that they’ve got the scoop:
OK! has exclusively learned that the Jersey Shore cast member who named his own muscles has signed on to the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars. So will his toned bod and glowing orange tan bring him success in the ballroom? While only time will tell, we think he’ll have a bit of that Patrick Swayze as Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing vibe. OK! recently spoke to DWTS‘ reigning pro champ, Derek Hough, about the upcoming season. And while he had no idea when we spoke with him that The Situation would be on the show, when we asked about the possibility, he said the presence of the Jersey Shore guido would get fans glued to their screens. “It’s people like that who come on the show who people will tune in and watch because either it will be a travesty or it will be interesting to see somebody turn something completely around so I’m up for anybody,” he told OK! at the Creative Emmys Saturday in L.A. “For me it’s classic entertainment, it’s fun. Whatever gets people talking and tuning in is interesting to watch.” Already signed on to the show is his fellow MTV reality star, Audrina Patridge of The Hills, recording artist Brandy and NFL alum Kurt Warner, who led the [St. Louis Rams] to a Super Bowl win in 1998.
What? Not only will The Situation be competing on DWTS but so too will Audrina Patridge from MTV‘s The Hills? It doesn’t sound like there will be any actual stars in this new season of the show … but the addition of these two reality TV hounds will sure attract some attention. Will the older audience who does NOT watch MTV but does love DTWS be impressed? I guess we’ll have to wait and find out.
Additionally, The Situation was spotted jumping for joy on the Seaside Heights, NJ set of the new season of Jersey Shore. After the jump, check out those photos … More »
Yesterday was a very nice and quiet day for me … I managed to get my day’s work done on the blog and tidy up the place a bit before David returned home from his quick trip back East. I spend the rest of the day just relaxing … after all the running around I’ve been doing lately, I was only interested in doing a whole lotta nothing. I did managed to set aside time to watch True Blood last night:
I really loved Lafayette and Jesus‘s psychotropic trip out session … seeing the Virgin Mary bust a move was really cute ;)
Last night, I hung out with Emma and Josh for a bit in Manhattan Beach, CA before going to LAX to pick up David from his flight. Now he’s home, we’re together again and have no plans to do anything too strenuous for a few days. I have a trip home to Detroit in a couple of weeks but in the meantime, I’m planning to do as little as possible. Happy Monday!
Julian Casablancas of The Strokes is 32, Jay Mohr is 40, Shelley Long & Rick Springfield are 61 and Barbara Eden (I Dream of Jeanie) is 76 years old today. Click HERE to see who else is celebrating a birthday today.
Le sigh. How can you NOT want to see more when you’ve got Becks looking so … welcoming. After the jump, check out a few cute photos of the Beckham Bunch looking all lovey-dovey in Santa Monica yesterday … More »
Fashionista rockers Benji and Joel Madden of Good Charlotte have teamed up with Macy’s department store to offer a line of clothing called Mad Picks that the guys have personally selected as hot Fall looks this year … for the ladies. Despite what some may think about the rock and rollers, the Madden brothers (older brother Josh Madden included) are among the most fashionable and style-conscious guys around. Here is our first look at one of the promo images for Mad Picks and some deets about this new style offering from Macy’s:
On Wednesday, August 25, Macy’s and American Rag will unveil the limited edition “Mad Picks” capsule collection by Good Charlotte’s Benji and Joel Madden, available in select Macy’s stores and on macys.com. As part of an exciting music program created by FILTER Creative Group and Macy’s private brand American Rag, the “Mad Picks” capsule collection has a distinct rock-n-roll feel for the girl who loves to combine her love of music with fashion. In addition to handpicking “Mad Picks” items from the American Rag fall collection, Benji and Joel Madden will be performing a series of five free concert events in Macy’s stores across the country this fall in support of Good Charlotte’s new album, Cardiology, out November 2. With stylish denim, embellished tops, and boho vests, “Mad Picks” is the Maddens’ first collaboration with a retailer and features their favorite looks from American Rag’s new seasonal collection for girls. To celebrate this effort and launch, the Maddens will perform free acoustic concerts at the following locations:
* Saturday, 9/11: Cherry Hill, NJ – Macy’s Cherry Hill
* Saturday, 9/25: Rosedale, MN – Macy’s Rosedale Center
* Saturday, 10/9: Miami, FL – Macy’s International Mall West Dade

* Saturday, 10/23: Skokie, IL – Macy’s Old Orchard
Each concert event will take place at 2 p.m. in Macy’s Juniors department and will feature autograph signings and sweepstakes for customers to win tickets to Good Charlotte’s upcoming tour. Customers who make a $50 purchase will get VIP access to meet the Maddens and receive a download card featuring an exclusive acoustic version of Good Charlotte’s new hit single, “Like It’s Her Birthday.” Fans in attendance will also have the opportunity to pre-order the upcoming album, Cardiology … The Maddens currently appear on the cover of RAGGED, the free publication featuring full-length articles and photo spreads of today’s hottest artists sporting the latest collections by American Rag. In the article, “Good Charlotte: Fashion Ready,” Benji and Joel discuss the “Mad Picks” collection: “We like to wear clothes that you can wear up or dress down, like a T-shirt you can throw a jacket over for dinner. It’s important for us as a band to have clothes which we can both walk on stage or relax at home.” Further commenting on the collaboration process, Benji Madden adds, “Macy’s and American Rag have always been places we have looked to for new trends and stylish clothing so it was exciting to be working with retailers where we would normally shop. Both Macy’s, American Rag and FILTER have been incredible and inspiring to work with and we can’t thank them enough for the opportunity. Joel and I can’t wait to look out into the crowd at the next Good Charlotte concert and see all the girls wearing our first collaboration from Mad Picks.” Visit your local Macy’s store beginning August 25 to find “Mad Picks” exclusively from American Rag and get a free PDF download of RAGGED Magazine at raggedmag.com.
I love these guys so much … and I love that they are now moving into the fashion world. Joel‘s #1 lady Nicole Richie has already launched her own clothing (Winter Kate) and jewelry line (House of Harlow 1960) so now it’s his turn to have his fashion say. I think this Mad Picks collection will be a huge success. After the jump, check out one more promo photo from the new Mad Picks campaign … More »
Madonna didn’t look very happy being caught in a downpour last night in London. The Material Girl was on location shooting her first feature length film W.E. – and must have been happy to be behind the camera for once with her uncharacteristically bedraggled look. Sheltering under a giant complementary umbrella from the swanky Mandarin Oriental Hotel in London’s upmarket Hyde Park, the soggy 52-year-old was less than her usual polished self after being caught in one of summer’s biggest deluges. Half a month’s worth of rain – up to 30mm – fell last night on the capital, with 11 flood warnings along the Thames this morning – and Madge’s hair seemed to have been doused in its fair share.
Yikes! Poor Maddy … here’s hoping her Madgesty didn’t catch her death by getting sopping wet this weekend. It’s very rare to see Madonna looking this unkempt (well, unless she means to do so purposely) … so let’s just look back on an earlier time when Madonna made being soaking wet look good:
Now, in order to keep the spoilerish information to a minimum for those of you who do not want to know too much about the new season of Cougar Town before the new season actually airs, I’ll keep the deets about what character Jen will play on the show. BUT, I will share the news that Jen will appear in the season 2 premiere ep when the show returns on September 22. If you would like to know more about her appearance on the show, you can read more after the jump … More »
Director Christopher Nolan will not go into filming production of the next Batman film until next year and will not hit movie theaters until 2012 but rumors about the film’s casting are starting to ramp up in frequency. In recent weeks, since the release of Nolan‘s film Inception, there has been talk that the films actors Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy are vying for roles in the next Batman film (I’m totally on board with JGL playing The Riddler) but today we learn of another rumor that claims that Academy Award-winning actress Marion Cotillard (who also starred in Nolan‘s Inception) has been offered her choice of roles for the new Batman. According to this new rumor, she can either play Catwoman or Talia al Ghul. Here is a fanmade poster that imagines what Marion might look like in the role of Catwoman and the deets of this interesting new casting rumor:
When it comes to Christopher Nolan’s Batman 3 movie project, nearly every actor associated with his 2010 blockbuster Inception has been linked with the next Batman sequel. Enter the latest rumor to hit … ComicBookMovie.com reports that Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard has been offered her choice of either Catwoman or Talia al Ghul in the yet-to-be-titled Batman 3 project. ComicBookMovie.com’s source allegedly is a former Warner Bros. intern with some inside knowledge. The report says the source:
“… was apparently told today by someone they met during that time that the actress has been approached by the studio to play either Selina Kyle or Talia al Ghul. They went on to tell me that Cotillard has had to turn down the offer as of now as she’s unsure whether the planned shooting start date of the next Batman movie will clash with other projects she’s either interested in or already committed to, despite the fact that she’s reportedly keen to re-team team with Christopher Nolan.”
Now before you get your lycra in a bunch, remember this: The “former intern” who is the source for this report could’ve just been slinging coffee between sound stages. Who knows if she really has privy to such inside information on an important project? But it’s always fun to speculate and I’m sure there are more than a few folks who wouldn’t mind seeing Marion Cotillard wear the shapely outfits required for either role.
Ha! As much as I love this rumor, I don’t really believe it. Even if Marion ends up appearing in the next Batman film, I doubt the source quoted in this report would ever have any such knowledge about her casting. That being said … I do think Marion Cotillard would be fantastic in either role. Everyone knows who Selena Kyle/Catwoman is but the role of Talia ah Ghul is a character not known by very many people. She is the daughter of the villain Ra’s al Ghul (who was featured in Batman Begins) and in the comic book series, she is the mother of Bruce Wayne‘s son Damien Wayne who grows up to be the 5th Robin. Just like Heath Ledger did with the role of The Joker, I feel that Marion could turn either of these two roles into an Academy Award. I’m not holding my breath, to be honest … everyone from Angelina Jolie to Scarlett Johansson has been rumored to play Catwoman. But if I had my pick, I’d deffo go with Marion Cotillard.
Yesterday we learned the very happy news that True Blood costars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer got themselves hitched in a surprise wedding ceremony in Malibu, CA this past Saturday night. Today we get to see new photos of the new husband out and about with some of his BFFs in Venice Beach, CA yesterday … strangely, Stephen was not in the company of his new wife … nor was he wearing his wedding ring:
It should be noted that Anna and Stephen have always enjoyed an unconventional relationship so none of this should be at all surprising. Just because the couple got married doesn’t mean they have to be joined at the hip 24/7. Perhaps Stephen isn’t the kind of guy who likes to wear a ring? Perhaps Anna spent the day with her BFFs elsewhere? To be honest, I’m just glad that in addition to stepping out ringless and wifeless, Stephen also spent some time shirtless ;) That being said, I cannot wait to see the newlyweds out and about TOGETHER hopefully soon.
