Jessica Alba Gets Sexy For New Campari Calendar

Jessica Alba is the new face of the utterly sexy Campari calendar, and looking at these photos it’s difficult to believe the new mom just had a baby six months ago. Needless to say, motherhood becomes her. Alba, who was shot by famed photographer Mario Testino, joins the likes of Eva Mendes and Salma Hayek in posing for the ultra-hot calendar.

“All the clothes were very cool. They’re young, sexy and fresh,” Alba told UsWeekly. “I’m usually walking around in comfy clothes with a baby on my arm and it’s nice to dress things up and feel sophisticated, sexy and surrounded by so much beauty.” Which means it’s win-win — Jess likes dressing sexy, and we like looking at her.

The Plaxico Burress Scanda-List

Who is he?

  • Plaxico Burress, the New York Giants’ wide receiver, who happened to catch the winning pass last year to win the XLII Super Bowl.
  • A consistently controversial player, he’s been a burr in the side of Giants coach Tom Couglin and fellow players due to his attitude and resistance to the role of team leader.

Why is everyone talking about him?

The Ladies We’re Thankful Exist

This Thanksgiving, instead of giving thanks for tired old things like a loving family (did that last year), good health (but you do have that nagging cold) and caring friends (who really just use up your phone minutes), why don’t you give thanks for the things that truly bring you joy, day in and day out: ladies. Whether they’re simply running around on a ridiculous tropical vacation or getting into some crazy hijinks, these ladies serve to brighten our otherwise dull days with vicious catfights and tons of skin.

Washed-Up Boy Bander Disses Kim Kardashian

C-list cat fight alert! Looks like Joey Fatone has a few choice words for the current crop of cast members on Dancing With the Stars. Fatone, who was runner-up on the show in 2007, isn’t a fan of reality television star Kim Kardashian, or former *NSync bandmate Lance Bass. Fatone (pictured above at a ribbon cutting ceremony for a public toilet in Times Square. Seriously.) told Page Six “it’s not just about dancing. It’s about personality, too. And that Kim Kardashian, ugh, she has no personality at all. It was painful to watch.” Scandalist would like to point out that Mr. Fatone hardly seems like an intriguing conversationalist himself.

As for who was wrongfully kicked off, Fatone seems to think Toni Braxton should have stuck around for longer. And of Lance Bass, the godfather to Fatone’s daughter? Bass “can’t point his toe for [bleep] . . . he had to have two Red Bulls before doing the jive.” Meow! [Photo: Getty Images]

Brit Bashes Katie Holmes

You may have thought head-shaving pop star Britney Spears was a little too busy losing it over the past two years to pay much mind to the tabloids, but it turns out she’s been keeping up with Katie Holmes. In a clip from the upcoming MTV documentary about the singer, Britney’s seen out shopping with an assistant. She plucks a shirt from a rack, holds it up, and tells her assistant, “This is very mommy.” Her assistant replies “It’s very ugly,” to which Britney says, “It is very Katie Holmes.” BURN.

No word on whether Britney was shopping for that pesky custody trial that remains unresolved, but we think she could take a page out of the devoted bride of Cruise’s playbook, at least as far as parenting goes. On the other hand, these pictures make us think Brit may have a point.

Lily Lies Her Way Into Boys’ Beds

Granted, it hasn’t been an easy year for Lily Allen, but we wonder if she isn’t doing herself any favors with her approach to the art of seduction. When it comes to boys, Lily seems to think the only way she can get them is to lie, hop into their beds naked and pretend to be asleep. The British cutie, who’s got an album coming out shortly, told Nylon magazine the way she’s snared her last two boyfriends (music executive Seb Chew and Chemical BrothersEd Simon).

“I got really drunk and lied to [Chew]. I said, ‘I’ve lost my keys and I can’t wake my mom up, can I stay on your sofa?’ and he was like, ‘Yeah, OK.’ He went to go and brush his teeth, and I literally just took all my clothes off and jumped in his bed and pretended to be asleep…That’s also how I got together with Ed. That’s the only way I can ever get together with people!” the singer added. We find that a bit hard to believe, but we think the single Lily should attempt a different approach.

Hollywood’s Hottest Vampires

Twilight, the movie that’s inciting Beatles-level hysteria in teens around the country, opens on Friday. Based on the beloved series of books by the same name, the movie stars Brit heartthrob Robert Pattinson as head garlic-hater Edward Cullen, a vampire who falls for mortal teen Kristen Stewart. But Pattinson’s perfectly tossled hair, cerulean eyes and pointy teeth are just the latest in a lengthy tradition of hot vampires. From Brad Pitt to Salma Hayek to Kate Beckinsale, find out who else we’d let suck our blood.

Boring-est Of ’08: Vote Now!

Some celebrities are famous the world over, have a legion of fans that follow their every move religiously, and an empire of merchandise advertising themselves. But that doesn’t mean these characters are any more compelling than the empty lunchboxes their faces are plastered all over. The Jonas Brothers, who’ve uttered about three words all year (they may have said more — but they’ve been drowned out by their shrieking fans) have about as much charisma as their live action figures, which is also true of fellow Disney factory product Selena Gomez. Gomez almost got interesting this year when Miley Cyrus mocked her milquetoast web videos, but that fire was quickly doused by Disney press releases. Jessica Alba scowled through ’08, putting out two cinematic bombs and a baby, and only occasionally breaking into a smile. As for former O.C. star Rachel Bilson, it seems that even she bored of her wooden on-screen performances, and has started a fashion line with DKNY.

Sneakiest Wedding Of ’08: Vote Now!

Wedding days are typically joyous, public affairs, filled with friends, family and attention. But when you’re a celebrity, they can take on the air of a black-ops mission. With more secrecy and lies than the Bush administration, Beyonce and Jay-Z attempted to pull off their rooftop wedding with little notice — and kept their nuptials under wraps until the day of, when deliveries to Jay’s apartment piqued interest. Also under deep, deep cover: Ryan Reynolds locked down his status as Luckiest Bastard Ever when he married Scarlett Johansson in a sneaky ceremony in a remote part of Canada — the event was kept so quiet, that’s all we know about it! Even though Ellen Degeneres and Portia DiRossi televised their bliss, no one knew about it until the day it aired on her show, which is one way to get an exclusive. Another set of nuptials that went down with a minimum of public attention? Jewel and boyfriend of ten years Ty Murray, who married in the Bahamas this summer.
