Paz de la Huerta Makes Jeggings Hot

OK, we know the article of clothing known as “jeggings” has gotten some serious flack. It’s definitely a tough look to pull off. But we gotta say, jeggings don’t look half bad on Paz de la Huerta. Is it just us? The Boardwalk Empire star rocked the risky fashion choice at the premiere of The Devil’s Double in New York City on Monday. Paz went into pin-up mode as she hit the red carpet, proving that she has what it takes to enter the cele-booty pantheon along with Kim Kardashian and J-Lo. We never thought we’d say this, but check the gallery below for more of the hottie in the jeggings!

Kat Von D and Jesse James Are Dunzo

After a fairy tale year of romance, tattoos and being “connected on a whole different level,” America’s bad boy/bad girl couple Kat Von D and Jesse James are calling it quits. The couple got together last summer in the aftermath of Jesse’s catastrophic end to his marriage with Sandra Bullock, and were engaged to be married in January. The stated reason for the break-up is that Jesse’s home in Texas is too far away from Kat’s tattoo shop in LA.

“The distance between us was just too much,” James told People Magazine. “I’m so sad because I really love her.” We’d  think this could have been sorted out before getting engaged. Silly us.

As for Kat’s response, she took to her Twitter:  “I am no longer w Jesse and out of respect for him, his family and myself, that’s all the info I’d like to share. Thanks for respecting that.” And just like that, America’s scariest couple is no more.

Jon Hamm Will Be Really Handsome on IFC Now

It looks like we’re about to get a double dose of man-god Jon Hamm this January. Not only is it the much anticipated return of Mad Men, but the chiseled actor has a little something extra up his sleeve. Apparently his turns on SNL and in Bridesmaids have whetted his appetite for comedy, and he is joining the cast of David Cross’ The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, set to air its second season on the IFC. The series centers around Cross as a mailroom clerk who talks his way into running an English energy drink cooperation.

No word on the role he’s going to play, but considering the show is also written by Cross, and co-stars his Arrested Development pal Will Arnet, we have extremely high hopes for the show. It’s a shame it’s only six episodes a season! But still there’s more coming up for the Mad Man. He’s reportedly attached to an upcoming Judd Apatow comedy co-starring Melissa McCarthy. What a Hamm! (*zing* See, Jon isn’t the only comedian around these parts)

Whoa! Is Carey Mulligan Engaged To Marcus Mumford?

British pixie dream girl Carey Mulligan has had her share of famous loves over the past year, including Shia ‘The Beef” LaBeouf and Tom “Crazy Beard” Sturridge. But now the Daily Mail is reporting that she is engaged to Mumford and Sons songster Marcus Mumford…after only dating for five months! Girl, back it up a step. The two met at a Mumford gig in Nashville this February, and she accompanied them on a portion of their tour across America in a vintage train. Ahh, we can’t take the throwbacky preciousness!

According to the article, the question was popped in an expensive English seaside hotel, and Carey spent the trip showing guests her massive engagement rock. “Carey looked like the cat who had got the cream,”  says one guest. “She was wearing a beautiful ring and didn’t seem to mind who saw it. They were stuck to each other like glue. She was doing most of the talking and he was hanging on her every word.” If all this is true, Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard have serious competition for their “Ultimate Twee-Couple” crown.

Kristen Stewart Spills About Filming The Twi-Wedding

For most of us, just seeing her royal hotness Kristen Stewart in person would be cause enough for us to squee our polyester pants. But for some 6,000 lucky attendees at Comic-Con yesterday, the lady herself spilled about filming one of the most squee-worthy scene in the entire Twilight Saga: the wedding scene with vamp-love Robert Pattinson! “I’d been ramping up to shoot that scene for four years,” she told the assembled crowd at the Breaking Dawn press junket. “They also put it at the end of the entire filming…When I got to set I was just as nervous and terrfiied as I expected myself to be.”

And for good reason: the scene features some of the most guarded wardrobe selections in Hollywood, and our fair K-Stew had to deal with White House-level secrecy. “I had to go get locked away in a room for the rest of the day because I was locked into my dress and had to protect it. It was secret service-style security. Everyone was grumbling around the set, ‘I can’t have a cell phone.’ It was like, ‘You don’t understand how much this means to us, thank you so much. If this dress gets on the internet I’ll die!’ That really was crazy.” Luckily for her  (but unfortunately for us) no on set pix of the gown have leaked, so you’ll just have to wait ’til it blows up theaters nation wide in November to check it out!

Celine Dion Kills ‘Ridiculous Pictures of Celine Dion’ Tumblr

Celine Dion needs to learn how to take a joke. The Canadian singer has redefined “diva” by threatening legal action against the administrator of the ‘Ridiculous Pictures of Celine Dion” tumblr. As advertised, the site specialized in unflattering and funny photos of Dion, of which there are admittedly many to choose from. Apparently the singer stumbled onto the blog (while Google-ing herself?) and her lawyers sent the editor a cease and desist notice resulting in the site’s closure.

The humble blogger signed off with an entry entitled “Céline Dion vs. Yourself.” “Céline Dion found our blog, and she didn’t like it,” they wrote. “We just got a letter from Céline’s lawyers [saying that] that the blog has to be shut down. Though this blog is well within the realm of ‘fair use’, I don’t have the money or time to get a lawyer to respond. The dream is over. Thanks for following and being a Céline superfan. I’ll always remember u, I’ll never let go.”

This aggression will not stand! We don’t know about you, but we feel like spearheading a legal defense fund for the tumblr. It is our constitutional right to post absurd faces of Oscar winning chanteuses! Until the Ridiculous Pictures of Celine Dion tumblr is revived, we will post a ridiculous photo of Celine every HOUR (note to Celine’s lawyers: we won’t do this). Until this wrong is righted, no blog is safe. Flood the web with hilarious Celine faces! We must keep the dream alive! Bloggers of the world, unite!

Chord Overstreet Is Over Glee

While it seems like most of your Glee favorites are safe from the axe, there’s one singing stud that won’t be roaming the halls of McKinley High for much longer. After much speculation, fan uproar, and back and forth negotiations, it looks like Chord Overstreet has declined a chance at a recurring role as Sam Evans on the hit series. It’s rumored that the 22 year old star is unhappy that newcomer Darren Criss is getting promoted to series regular this fall, while his option was not picked. He would have to wait until the middle of the season for his chance to get the bump. Apparently this wasn’t a firm enough offer and he has decided to walk.

“We wanted him back because we like Chord personally and had some good stories planned for him and with Mercedes [Amber Riley],” series producer and co-creator Brad Falchuk told a crowd at Comic-Con. “He decided he would have opportunities elsewhere that he would like to pursue, and we can’t force him to work. We told him to go with God.” It looks like things are up in the air for his onscreen flame as well. Amber Riley recently told E! Online that she might be leaving the series as well. “I may not be coming back for a fourth season. Who knows? Whatever happens this third season is what happens, and I think everybody’s OK with it…I love my job to pieces, but when it’s time to go, it’s time to go and, hopefully, there are greater things on the horizon.”

Katy Perry Looks Smurfing Smurf-tastic at The Smurfs Premiere

Well it looks like someone in Hollywood felt the world is ready for The Smurfs in 3D, which had it’s premiere this weekend in Los Angeles. While we’re not quite sure how to feel about this, one thing is clear: Katy Perry looked Smurfin’ Smurftastic as she strutted down the red (er, blue) carpet. The California gurl played cartoon heart-throb Smurfette, the only female Smurf in the Smurf Village and envy of every Smurf in the land. We’re not sure if Katy dyed her hair blonde to get even closer to her cartoon alter ego (which she displayed proudly on her dress), but we’re diggin the new ‘do.

What do you think? Let us know! And while you’re at it, check out more pics of Neil Patrick Harris, Sofia Vergara and more Smurf stars in the gallery below!

Kristen Stewart Is All Hot ‘n’ Swordy In Snow White Promo

The first promo pix for Snow White and The Huntsman just dropped, and we have to say that they’re kinda the bomb. We knew our fair Kristen Stewart wouldn’t be just another damsel in distress, and here she is taking matters into her own hands with a badass shield and sword combo. That’s the K-Stew we know and love!

Kristen and the rest of the Snow White cast hit up Comic-Con over the weekend to discuss the upcoming flick. On hand were Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen, Aussie hottie Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman, and Sam Claflin who plays Prince Charmant. “I wasn’t initially jumping at the chance [to play Snow White],” Kristen told the crowd. “but she is one of the most heavy-handedly sincere, seriously doesn’t let her heart cloud her mind characters. Also, I get to have a sword and stuff.” Damn right.

And as the pix suggest, it’s going to be a much darker affair than the Disney classic. Apparently they’re exploring the story of the eighth dwarf, who gets killed as the story progresses. “It’s not a little girl sitting by a well with tweety birds telling her what’s going on,” says director Rupert Sanders. Hi-ho, hi-ho, it’s off to an R-rating we go! What would Walt say?
