Myspace scribe (oh, and actress) Lindsay Lohan (pictured above on the set of Ugly Betty yesterday) and her lady-partner Samantha Ronson both took to their MySpace blogs today to remember the national tragedy of September 11th, 2001. In honor of that horrific day we shall refrain from dissing on their writing because they’re totally right: while 9/11/2008 will be remembered for three hours as the day Kanye got locked up for his temper, we should always reflect on what happened seven years ago, and honor those whose lives were lost. Thanks Lilo and SamRo. Take a moment and read, and then take a moment and remember.
Lindsay: I am in New York and I would like to remind everybody to take a moment today for those lost in tragedy that occurred on 9/11/01.
Samantha: waking up in nyc this morning 7 years later and it feels like just yesterday this city and our worlds were turned upside down…. never in my lifetime had I ever believed that I would see such horror- the kind that you see in documentaries set in far off places and read about in text books- never in my life had I ever thought that I would wake up and fall asleep afraid- watching things on television that felt like a film- walking through a city that felt like a war zone. there were army vehicles on houston street, barricades dividing neighbourhoods and lines around the block of people waiting to donate blood set in front of a backdrop of smoke filling a space where two of the largest buildings once stood. Two buildings that shaped one of the most famous skylines in this country, or in the world…… Seven years later and I will never forget. I don’t really know what to say except to all those we lost we will never forget and never take for granted the sacrifices that you made.
What do you think, is Jayde Nicole a step up from Kristen Cavallari, Nicole Richie and Lauren Conrad?
Amazingly, hot women seem to be attracted to the douchebag factory that is Brody Jenner. We’ve never quite understood what is so attractive about a dude who loves throwing down peace signs, tattooing his name on his body, and Spencer Pratt – but chicks seem to dig it. But his latest lady is of a respectable pedigree – Playboy! She’s not just any old Playmate, she’s the Playmate of the Year 2008. Doesn’t she seem to be a little too good for a dude about to star in a show called Bromance?
On second thought – she apparently has the word “respect” tattooed right above her vadge. Sounds like a perfect match!
Thought your brain couldn’t get any mushier? Think again. Lauren Conrad – she of the blank stare and the solid track record of losing friends – has signed on to “write” three books that are basically just about her blessed existence in Hollywood. “It’s definitely influenced by my own life,” she told People. “The books are about a girl who moves to L.A. and stars in a reality show, so obviously there are some similarities.”
Some? It’s The Hills for book nerds (do these exist anymore?). Lauren promises that people from her real life will not be mocked or mirrored in the series, claiming, “Some of the characters may symbolize people in my life, but it is in no way calling anyone out.” That asshole character named Fencer is purely crafted from the empty, dark cavern that is Lauren’s imagination.
Confidential to Lauren:You can’t write this book on your Blackberry, FYI. You need to use something called a computer. Yes! It’s the big, white thing you sat in front of at the Teen Vogue office for three years. [People. Photo: Getty Images]
Well look what we have here. Jessica Alba was spotted yesterday apartment shopping in Brooklyn while awkwardly holding her baby at the same time! Celebs are so good at multitasking. She even dragged a bodyguard around with her the whole time, as Jess apparently has not yet learned that Brooklynites don’t give a crap about stars shacking up in their cozy hoods. Just ask Michelle Williams – she’s got an Oscar nod and cute kid, yet we all act like she’s not even there. That’s the New York way.
Curbed reported back in June, 2007 that Alba was checking out a building on the Lower East Side of Manhattan (where Lindsay Lohan and Sam Ronson bump uglies when they’re in town). Interestingly enough, that same company now has a new development in Park Slope, Brooklyn – is this the spot Jess was checking out?
Token “stars, they want to be just like us” moment – Jessica took the subway to Brooklyn.
See? Here’s LiLo at the VMAs on Sunday. Sam Ronson‘s waif ways are rubbing off on her. If only her mom wasn’t so busy ruining her other kids and getting spray tanned – she could set Linds straight on the whole sin and bones thing. (We meant to write “skin and bones” here, but “sin and bones” almost seems more fitting. It stays!)
Say what you will about his mom, but Track Palin (seen above with siblings Willow and Trig) is a straight up hunk of moose meat. Also, his name is Track. Track! It’s so absurd it’s sexy. But the nineteen-year old (eek, we’re creepy) is being accused by the dirt-diggers at the National Enquirer of having a two-year long love affair with OxyContin. They’ve even got a source who says, “I’ve partied with him (Track) for years. I’ve seen him snort cocaine, snort and smoke OxyContin, drink booze and smoke weed.”
They also point the finger at Sarah Palin‘s pregnant daughter Bristol, with another Alaskan spy alleging, “Bristol was a huge stoner and drinker. I’ve seen her smoke pot and get drunk and make out with so many guys. All the guys would brag that they just made out with Bristol.”
Sexy! Slutty! Scandalous! Alaskan! But is it true? [National Enquirer. Photo: Getty Images]
Anne Hathaway‘s Italian stallion-turned felon Raffaello Follieri plead guilty in court today to wire fraud, money laundering, conspiracy and general douchebaggery. He’s now stuck with a max of five years and three months in jail, where he’ll surely watch his beloved Anne date the best of Hollywood’s dude D List from behind bars. There’s nothing worse than watching your girl make out with Justin Long while hammering out some license plates. Weep.
Anne has been busy moving on via the old Hollywood 1-2 punch: spill your guts in a cheesy interview and then get snapped by the paparazzi out with a dude who is probably just a friend. She told W magazine, “As soon as I found out about the arrest, I had to get on a plane to Mexico to do a press tour for Get Smart. And then I spent a week in shock at a friend’s house.” This week, we caught her out in NYC dressed down and hanging with some guy. New boyfriend? Probably not – but it’s fun to make the ex squirm, right? [People. Photo: Splash News Online]
