Nicole Kidman Terrorized By A White Powdery Substance

We have a pact with our office mates regarding food in our teeth – if you see something, say something. No one wants to head into a meeting with poppy seeds in their front teeth. Seems like Nicole Kidman doesn’t have that pact with her co-workers. Kidman walked the red carpet at the New York premiere of Nine, which racked up 10 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards nominations, with powder all over her nose and under her eyes on Tuesday and there was nary a good friend nearby to tell her the truth about her face.

Now, if this were a younger, leggings-loving starlet we’d make the obvious cocaine joke, but Kidman is a class act and we’re sure that she was just trying to eliminate the sheen created by hundreds of flashbulbs shining on her delicate features. This is why it’s essential to travel to the bathroom in packs, ladies. We have to look out for one another because even the statuesque, impossibly thin, gorgeous ones occasionally go astray.  [Photo: GettyImages]

Tiger Woods Once Torn Apart By His Dad’s Cheating

Tiger Woods and father

Tiger Woods‘ father Earl taught him to play golf, but one ex-girlfriend wants everyone to know that Tiger might have picked up some of his womanizing ways from him, too. Tiger’s first girlfriend, Dina Parr, who dated the golf star when he was in high school and college, said that she consoled Tiger after he discovered his father cheating on his mother.

“He would just call crying and say, ‘My dad is with another woman,’ and that would be all he could say. He would be so upset,” Parr told E!. Woods had an incredibly close relationship to his father (who passed away in 2006), but Parr said “[his cheating] was the one thing about his dad that he could never get over.” Tiger may have fifteen mistresses speaking up and dragging his name through the mud, but it takes a special kind of ex-girlfriend to bring a deceased father into the mess.

Jake Gyllenhaal And Reese Witherspoon: The Split Is Real

Jake Gyllenhaal & Reese Witherspoon

They were on for two years, then rumored to be off just a few weeks ago, but then their reps were like, oh no, they are so on. Jake was even rumored to be proposing. But now the Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal breakup rumor is back, and a source confirms to Gossip Cop that the two “are no longer together” and the breakup was “amicable and mutual”. “Gyllenspoon” never did roll off the tongue that easily, so maybe it’s for the best.

The couple met on the set of Rendition in 2007, a film which will join Mr. And Mrs. Smith as being memorable only because of the celebrity couple it created. Now that Reese and Jake are broken up, you can feel free to forget it entirely.

19th Duggar Child Comes Early

The Duggar family of TLC’s “18 Kids And Counting” welcomed their 19th child into the world a lot earlier than expected. Michelle Duggar gave birth to little Josie Brooklyn, who weighs just 1lb., 6oz. at 25 weeks, over three months ahead of schedule. The mother and daughter will have to remain in the hospital for the time being. Michelle was initially brought in to the hospital to have gallstones removed but was later brought into the operating room for an emergency c-section.

We certainly wish them well, but the fact that the baby came so early frightens us, if only because it means that Michelle and husband JimBob will be trying for baby #20 that much sooner. Josie will also be an aunt to her two-month old niece, Mackynzie, who was born to the eldest Duggar, Joshua. Rest assured this family will repopulate the earth is the rest of us get wiped out.

Odd Couple: Jessica Simpson and Billy Corgan


Never in a million years would our grunge-loving high school selves have imagined that someone as artistic and anti-everything-mainstream as Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan would become just another dirty old man who likes to bang starlets. Most recently Corgan has found his E-harmonious 29 dimensions of compatibility with Jessica Simpson. The man who once wrote a song called “F*ck You (An Ode To No One)” paired with Miss Chicken of the Sea is beyond weird, but lately the two have been seen together hanging out in New York over the past several days, and a source says that Jess is “smitten.”

Corgan is notoriously temperamental, or at least he’s made out to be, and was been linked to Courtney Love a few times in  the past. All things considered, the coupling with Simpson is a surprising one, although he’s been making surprising decisions a lot of late, ever since he dated Tila Tequila earlier in the year. As a preacher’s kid, Simpson apparently finds Corgan to be a spiritual match, tweeting, “My friend, Billy Corgan, has a pure and enlightening outlook on faith. Go to his new website.” Maybe they’ll prove the old adage we learned in church that friends who pray together, stay together.  [Photos: GettyImages]


Khloe Kardashian: Kourtney’s Not A Natural Mom


We hope Kourtney Kardashian has been reading up her “What To Expect When You’re Expecting,” because to hear her sister Khloe tell it, Kourtney has no idea what she’s in for. Khloe, on an episode of “The Rachel Ray Show” which will air today, said that she had to set her sister straight about a few pregnancy-related things, breast feeding being one of them.

“Kourtney was like, ‘I’m so excited. I don’t have to cook for five years! And I go, ‘What do you mean?’ She’s like, ‘I’m gonna breast feed.’ I go, ‘For five years?’ She has, like, no idea!”

We assume Kourtney understands the facts now. Well, we hope.  Besides, that’s the kind of stuff they make awkward Discovery Channel documentaries about, not episodes of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”. Khloe told Ray though that even though she used to think “Kourtney was never the type that I ever would think would ever want to have kids,” her sister has changed since becoming pregnant. Kourtney is due in late December.

Nicole Richie, Why Must Your Children Be So Cute?


Nicole Richie, why must your children be so adorable? WHY? They make our ovaries so jealous. We’re even more envious today after seeing the casual, fun family portraits Nicole posted to her website featuring the whole clan – Joel Madden, Nicole, Harlow and baby Sparrow.

We’re so in love with Harlow we can’t get over it, but what’s eerie is how Joel manages to stay extremely still and doesn’t look different in any of the shots. Spooky! If that’s just another fun afternoon in the Richie-Madden home then make some sandwiches, Nicole, ’cause we’re coming over to hang out later.  [Photo:]


Madonna’s Kids Get Into The Groove


We hear Madonna‘s kids aren’t allowed to watch television, so of course they have to find other ways to entertain themselves. Madge just didn’t realize they were learning all her songs and dance moves. The Material Girl recently told GMTV that her youngest, David, loves her music. “He knows every song, every word, every step, and he wants to wear all the costumes,” Madonna told the show.

Her other son Rocco also has the performing bug and he surprised her by coming onstage at one of her shows last year. “When he jumped on stage to dance in my last show, I was shocked actually. And secretly, unbeknownst to me, they’re all studying privately with my dancers. And Rocco comes out and busts out like a moonwalk or you know, some kind of break-dancing move.”

Daughter Lourdes must have also learned some of the same break dancing moves – she showed them off in a video for the single “Celebration”. We love that this is becoming a family act, it’s like 21st century Partridge Family. They’re one painted tour bus away from taking this act on the road.
