World War Z, opening nationwide this weekend, is the highly anticipated 3-D zombie epic starring Brad Pitt. Up until this point the film has been overshadowed by stalled productions, rewrites, re-shoots and Angelina Jolie‘s appearance at the premiere in London. VH1 Celebrity previewed WWZ last week and pulled together all the essential things you need to know before going into the film.
It’s a Kourtney! It’s a Khloe! No it’s Kendall Jenner. The sister who has watched her sisters work in front of the camera for years is ready to step out on her own. Noah Levy tells us that the Jenner is making a go as a fashion model. While many wrote her off initially, she wowed at a recent fashion event. She’s no catalog model, she’s the real deal. The Gossip Table thinks she’s going to go places. So watch out, fashion world!

Walking Leo, Sad Leo and now we can add Mad Leo to the mix. Why so grumpy, Leo? It’s Friday on The Gossip Table!
Well, according to Marianne Garvey, the walking meme was apartment hunting in Tribeca in New York City. Someone called the cops to disperse a crowd of onlookers that gathered outside to gawk at DiCaprio. When the NYPD showed up, he reportedly gave them and fans the middle finger. But his camp says that he would never disrespect anyone, especially the men blue. Maybe he was just upset that no one was impressed by his new jeep…
Which celebrity is tweeting pics of his newborn? Sadly, it’s not Kanye West.
Zombies have been a staple of the horror genre for nearly 70 years. And it’s no surprise that the creatures have evolved over time. But no matter what, there are two characteristics that mark a zombie: intelligence (or lack thereof) and speed. In fact, it was George A. Romero who set the standard that most people know today. Zombies in Night Of The Living Dead were sluggish and had little brain power except for the need for flesh. Eventually, zombies developed attack skills, motor functions, self-awareness and in Warm Bodies case, true emotion.
Then there’s speed. I Walked With A Zombie was all but human, just dazed. Then films like 28 Days Later and Zombieland pressed on the gas peddle. World War Z marks another significant step in the zombie evolution. The speed of this film’s creatures are probably the fastest in pop culture (unless you count the quick steps of Michael Jackson‘s “Thriller”). Surprisingly, they lack any real intelligence, just a frighteningly intense desire for flesh.

Lindsay Lohan has been in rehab for over 30 days, and The Gossip Table hears that she is settling into life there. Rob Shuter reports that Lohan looks fresh and relaxed. Additionally, she is bonding with other patients at the clinic and making new friends (for life).
Chloe Melas chatted with her father, Michael Lohan, this morning and reports that he said: “I’m really happy that Lindsay is in a good place. She sounds and looks great.”
Apparently, he has faith in her recovery as long as no one puts any financial pressure on her. This stint in rehab is just what the actress needs and it will stick if she can rid herself of the plagues of the past. Here’s hoping she does!

Another day, another Kimye update. The Gossip Table has quite a few nuggets.
- Chloe Melas tells us that, unless in need of medical attention, all new mothers are asked to leave Cedars-Sinai Hospital after two nights. If that’s the case, Kim Kardashian may have checked out Monday morning.
- Additionally, Melas reports there may be an issue over the dramatic reveal of Baby Kimye. Magazines reportedly do not want to feature Kanye West on the cover. They rather just have Kardashian and her daughter. Burn.
- Finally, the family is reportedly disputing over Baby Kimye’s name. The rapper is rumored to have settled on the name, North as in North West. But wait? There’s no ‘K’ unless it’s silent. So, Knorth West?!

Wedding worries kick off Tuesday’s edition of The Gossip Table. Even though Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux got engaged last summer the two still haven’t made the trip down the aisle. Rob Shuter reports that sources are saying that the two may never get married. The couple was reportedly happier before the pressures of the wedding began to set in.
