The Evolution Of Jessica Alba

It’s hard to imagine Hollywood without the uber hot Jessica Alba. Just try it. It would be a much less sexy place, we’ll tell you that much. She’s topped more Hot Lists than we haven’t. Getting her start as a child actress (guest spot in The Secret World of Alex Mac, anyone?), the alluring Alba first exploded onto the scene in the Dark Angel TVseries before going on to take over big screens and magazines across the country. And most amazing of all, today the lovely leading lady turns the tender age of thirty. Thirty? She did that all before thirty!?

In honor of her big day, let’s take a look back at some of her hottest styles. We think you’ll agree that she earned her Sexiest Woman In The World title!

Funny Or Die Tryin’: 50 Cent Starts His Own Comedy Website

After successful ventures into film, technology and clothing, hip hop star 50 Cent is trying to break into the viral comedy game by starting his own website, Thisis50Comedy.com. Although currently semi-live, the site is to formally launch tomorrow with the premiere of his original web series, This Is 50 Comedy Show. The program will be hosted by 50 Cent associate Young Jack Thriller, and taped in front of a live audience at the Times Square Arts Center.

“The comedy game is about to change,” the rap impresario promises in an intro video on the site. “Your life is about to change.” We have to say that he’s sort of right. We truly haven’t been the same since we made our way over to his corner of cyberspace. Never has anyone taken comedy so seriously. It may look more like a pro-wrestling fan page than a humor hub, but for $2.99 a month the site promises to bring you “the cutting-edge humor of the nation’s funniest comedians.”

Lilo Surprises Leno, Gets A Standing O

Lindsay Lohan gave Jay Leno’s studio audience quite a shock last night when she stopped by The Tonight Show studios for an unscheduled interview. The taped segment, which is set to air tonight, is the first time Lindsay has broken her silence since being sentenced to jail on Friday. Despite her troubles, Lilo received a hot welcome from his audience, who reportedly rose to their feet in applause when she walked into the set.

The bulk of their chat obviously revolved around her legal issues. According to RadarOnline, she admitted to feeling “kind of dumb” about the whole thing, and the sentence of 120 days in jail “left her numb.” In addition to her jail time, Lindsay also faces 480 hours of community service stemming from felonly theft charges. But she did seem hopeful for the future, apparently confirming her role as John Gotti Jr’s wife in the upcoming Gotti: Three Generations.

Lindsay has been fielding many offers to appear on big name talk shows, but those close to the actress say that she chose Leno because she feels “grateful” to him. “He has been nothing by good to her and her family over the years,” a source told TMZ, “and has always been protective of her.”

Michael Lohan Shows Support For Lindsay By Fighting John Bobbit

Well isn’t this sweet. Just days after Lindsay Lohan got sent back to jail, father Michael is showing support for his daughter in his own special, attention-seeking way. In an effort to raise awareness for teen drug and alcohol addiction, Big Mike has agreed to fight John Bobbit in a charity boxing match. We would have suggested sending Lindsay an Edible Arrangement, but this works too.

For those of you who’ve never heard a standup comedy routine dating from 1993-2003, Bobbit achieved infamy after his wife Lorena cut off his penis with a kitchen knife. “It should be a very interesting match!” Celebrity Boxing founder Damon Feldman told RadarOnline. “It’s for a great cause.”

We’re pretty sure that Lindsay’s already done a pretty good job of raising awareness of teen drug and alcohol abuse. Maybe Michael just really wants to beat up John Bobbit. Or perhaps beating up a man whose genitals have been maimed by household cutlery is the only way Michael knows how to say “I love you.” Regardless, the three one-minute rounds are scheduled to take place in Ft. Lauderdale on June 4th. It’s ON! Remember Mike, no hitting below the belt. Oh wait…

Kingston and Zuma Rossdale’s Stylin’ Easter Egg Hunt

For some, Easter is a time to get together with family. For other’s it’s just an excuse to start the day with a creation we like to call a “Carmel Cadbury Egg Omlette”. It looks like Gwen Stefani took the more traditional route by bringing her family over to her parent’s LA home on Sunday. There were no Easter bonnets to be seen, but sons Kingston and Zuma continue to look cooler than we will ever be while clad in their oh-so-casual light grey suits. Is it allowed to look that dapper while on an Easter egg hunt?

Jim Carrey Heads To The Office



Steve Carell’s departure from NBC’s The Office may be a week away, but the producers are keeping the halls of Dunder Mifflin well stocked with big-name comedians. Will Ferrell has been seen in the last few episodes as temporary manager DeAngelo Vickers, and now the show is getting another shot of concentrated wacky by welcoming Jim Carrey into the fold. Carrey has officially signed on to appear in the season finale, and there’s even a rumor that it may be a recurring role.

The 50-minute special, set to air on May 19th, will include numerous other celebrities competing for manager of Dunder Mifflin, including Ray Romano, Will Arnet, James Spader, Catherine Tate and series creator Ricky Gervais. It’s still undecided which of them will be taking over for Carell, with even other cast members being left in the dark.

“We don’t know who will replace Steve yet,” Office star John Krasinski told HitFix.com. “It might not even be a replacement of Steve, it might be more of a shift. Everybody was talking about there being a spin-off of the show years ago and I feel like this is our spin-off.”

Soap Fans Beg Oprah to Save Their Cancelled Shows

The Oprah giveth and the Oprah taketh away. After network soap opera mainstays One Life To Live and All My Children were given the axe this week, fans of the daytime dramas hit up the Queen of Television in order to make things right. Oprah Winfrey has been inundated with messages begging her to pick up the two canceled shows on her television network, OWN. While she heard their digital prayers, the talk show  titan has decided that she won’t go to bat for the decades-old soaps.

“I understand what it feels like to have a show you love off the air,” Oprah explained in a video. “And I appreciate that you all think I could save the soaps, but here is bone marrow truth. The soaps have been an institution in broadcast history and television because they had the support of the audience.”

She cited the failing ratings as the obvious risk for bringing the shows to  her network. “Believe me, if there was a dime left to be made from them on broadcast television it would still be happening . [But] I will not be taking on the responsibility of trying to revive an institution that for all intent and all purpose indicates that that time has come for it to be over. So thank you for believing I could save them. But I really can’t.”

The final episodes of All My Children and One Life To Live are slated to air this September.

Bridget Marquardt Bikini-Shoot Makes Us Wish We Lived Next Door


In a photoshoot today, Girl Next Door Bridget Marquardt continued to look nothing like anyone who has ever lived next door to us. We’re guessing she must really drive up the property values in her neighborhood. The Playboy Playmate posed for pix in a teeny tiny  bubblegum-pink bikini while lounging poolside in LA. Seems like she does this every day, but we’re not complaining. Enjoy!

Tracy Morgan Wants To Climb Michelle Obama Like “A Tall Mountain”

Tracy Morgan might be looking for a new country to call home if he’s not careful. While appearing on Lopez Tonight Monday evening, Morgan opened up about meeting our commander-in-chief at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner last summer. However, it seems like the 30 Rock star was far more impressed with meeting the President’s wife. Yes, Tracy Morgan has thing for First Lady Michelle Obama. And that’s putting it mildly.

“I looked at Michelle and she said, ‘Hi Tracy!’ and I just got hard!” Morgan over-shared. “Michelle looked like a tall mountain, and I’m gonna climb it just ’cause it’s there. Kilimanjaro!” We wonder if this is what the founding father’s had in mind when they outlined Freedom of Speech. Let’s hope the Prez isn’t the jealous type, or else Gitmo might have a new inmate.

Amber Rose Is Hot, Buoyant

Amber Rose got wet ‘n’ wild during her trip to Barbados last week, where she stripped off to snorkel in the crystal Carribean sea. But keeping safety first and foremost, the shiney-domed model made sure to don a life vest over her famous figure. We guess silicone doesn’t float.

The former Almost-Mrs-Kanye-West is now rumored to be the Almost-Mrs-Wiz-Khalifa, with engagement spectulations swirling around the couple.  “Its really beautiful here, but I’m starting to get a lil home sick,” Amber told her fans on  Twitter. Perhaps she longs for the loving embrace of The Wiz?

Check out the sea-faring sexiness in the gallery below!
