Soapbox time, folks. Today’s New York Post has a “spy” quoted as saying Blake Lively is “glowing” now that she’s back on the Gossip Girl set, following her surprise (to us) wedding to Ryan Reynolds earlier this month. And everyone is on “bump-watch.” You know why they’re on bump watch? Because Blake is usually really careful about what she eats, but since her wedding, she seems to be eating a lot more.”
Hold on a second. Could she also be “glowing” because she just got back from a honeymoon? Could she be eating more because she’s no longer under the stress of planning a wedding, which tends to zap many a bride-to-be’s appetite? Sorry, since getting married almost 10 years ago, I’ve been hounded by people’s jokes that I’m pregnant literally every time I get sick. And once I did finally decide to have a kid, no one guessed it at all. People love to pretend they know everything that’s going on in another lady’s womb, don’t they? If she is pregnant, great for her! She’s all set with a new hubby and a house in the suburbs. But how’s about we let Blake enjoy a meal or two before we start with this stuff.

Just as Amanda Bynes was claiming to People that she’s “doing amazing,” more reports of her bizarre behavior started making the rounds. Sources told the magazine that she was booted out of a spin class at Equinox after wandering around the class to switch bikes, removing her top to spin in a strapless push-up bra and then stopping to put on makeup for 10 minutes. So, yeah, we’re glad she hasn’t decided to replace driving with cycling as her preferred mode of transportation.
“I am retired as an actor. I am moving to New York to launch my career,” she told People yesterday, explaining that she plans to start her own fashion line. That might be a good option for someone with a suspended license, as we have plenty of other ways to get around. Then again, we’ve seen how that worked out for Lindsay Lohan this week.
And speaking of La Lohan, TMZ says Amanda told “friends” that Lindsay’s arrest was just karma kicking her back for tweeting about Amanda over the weekend. Our question: Who are these “friends” that report everything she says to TMZ but don’t stop her from acting crazy in public?

So, Heidi Klum has clearly been following all the updates about Kate Middleton‘s topless scandal, considering she now needs to pick up some tips about how to handle her own incident. Because Heidi was also sneakily photographed topless, and she’s mad about it. The supermodel was on vacation in the South of France with her bodyguard boyfriend and was blindsided by the fact that pictures from their holiday turned up on various websites. Unfortunately for her, tracing who is responsible is a task as so many different sites have posted the pictures, and sources say her people are currently trying to find the party who is to blame. It’s the Kate story — violation of privacy — since Heidi was also sunbathing at a private chateau in France. And now, the news is that she’s seriously contemplating suing when she finds out who took the photos. Firstly, what is up with the French? They really know how to play dirty! But we hate to say it, because we said it before, there is nothing known as “private” anymore. Celebrities can sue all they want for violations but court cases always happen after the damage is done. The pictures always come out first and the embarrassment doesn’t really go way because a judge pounds his gavel and says so. We’re not saying don’t go get the a—, but we’re saying … c We have a feeling that Heidi’s going to draw the papers soon. If the Duchess can do it, so can she!

We’re just going to leave this right here for you, Dina Lohan: despite (or perhaps because of) Amanda Bynes‘ uncle Ronald Bynes’ interview with Celebuzz this week, in which he claims that the All That star’s parents are “in the dark” about her recent problems, TMZ alleges that Mama and Papa Bynes actually put their Cedar Park, Texas home up for sale after Amanda’s DUI in April and have since moved to L.A. to act as a support system. If true, this might be the most surprisingly hopeful thing about the Amanda Bynes’ story since she starred in She’s The Man. Honestly! It’s an extremely underrated movie!
While Amanda’s problems don’t seem to have, you know, stopped at all, we can’t help but feel that this is a great sign. Maybe we’re just constantly exposed to celebrity parents who can’t or won’t offer a voice of reason in their children’s lives, but this rumor makes us feel like Amanda has at least some quasi-normal people she can rely on. It’s kind of the same conclusion we came to when contemplating Miley Cyrus‘ numerous yet not disastrous public scandals: having semi-stable parents is probably the key to a child star becoming a functioning adult. Or just not having Michael Lohan within a 500 foot radius of them. Either one.
Huh? Call us crazy, but we always assumed Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent were more of a “friends with benefits” situation than a love match when they were together in 2010. They were always so weird and coy about the whole thing! Just like how we are about our friends with benefits! Uh, we mean… Despite the rumor that emerged last year claiming Chelsea dumped Fif for hotelier Andre Balazs, Handler now allegedly admits that it was Fiddy’s on-going drama with ex-girlfriend Ciara that came between them…and of course it went down right before Chelsea had to interview Ciara on Chelsea Lately in December 2010! See, this is why friends with benefits don’t work! Ciara’s always calling and trying to get back together with them!
“…Ciara–that’s her name!–was coming on the show, and he called me to tell me something about her like she still calls him all the time, and she still tells him that she loves him or something,” Handler allegedly revealed in a recent interview. “He said, ‘I want you to hear this conversation’ and he was like calling someone like a 3-way phone call. I go, ‘So you’re telling me this girl wants to get back together with you, but she’s upset that you’re dating me, is that what you’re saying?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, so I just want you to know when she comes.’” Wait…what? Why would you tell your new lady friend any of that? We’re with Chelsea on this one: “honestly this is like eighth grade s—.” For Chelsea, the fact that Fif would make things that awkward right before Ciara’s visit was the last straw. “I think I called him the worst thing you could say to a black person short of calling him the N-word. I said something like you’re like a street person basically. Something along the lines of being a gangster, and it was really, really offensive and I hung up and I’ve never spoken to him again,” admits Handler. Yikes! Well, we hope it was all worth it, Ciara and Fiddy. They immediately got married after this went down, right?

This post is going up a little later than planned because we basically spent the past hour staring at the photo on the left. Our photo agency Splash News says that it is Lady Gaga performing in Amsterdam last night. And indeed, it is with a batch of other photos from the show. But even though Mother Monster does seem to have added a tiny bit of meat to her bones (insert meat dress pun), we don’t think this photo looks like her AT ALL. Especially when we see the photo on the right, which was taken this morning and does not show her to have a massive double chin. So, maybe you guys can help us decide. Is this just a terribly unflattering photo of Gaga? Or is it a body double she had onstage? We haven’t seen her on her latest tour, so maybe that’s part of her act? Not that we care if she gains weight — girlfriend has been touring nonstop for three years and she deserves to fuel her body.
We are less concerned about the NSFW video posted below, in which Gaga accepts and lights up a joint from among the many gifts thrown to her onstage during the show. She’s of age and it’s perfectly legal in the Netherlands. Some of you disagree and say she’s setting a bad example for the kids back at home. Well, it’s not like she’s lighting up on the Disney Channel. Parents, get your kids away from Youtube if they are susceptible to such examples — ’cause they’re bound to find way worse things than someone taking a little toke.
It had been a while since we’d heard from Bobbi Kristina Brown and her adopted brother/boyfriend Nick Gordon. But we hoped that they were happy, doing all the fun things that siblings/a young couple do when they’re in love. You know: Picnics in the park, row boats on the pond, driving around with a firearm. Well, we’re pleased to report that the lovebirds are indeed doing one of those things, at least! Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s troubled daughter tweeted a picture yesterday of Nick cruising the streets while brandishing a gun. The post has since been deleted so we sadly can’t get any more facts, such as why he was cruising the streets with said gun in the first place. It definitely brings new meaning to “defensive driving.”
Is this the glimmer of hope we’ve been waiting for? Because neither Robert Pattinson nor Kristen Stewart ever said anything about breaking up in the aftermath of that Rupert Sander mess, many fans — our own Kate Spencer included — were crossing their fingers and toes that these kids two would work things out. Kristen’s ambiguous “We’re totally fine” statement at Toronto was the first indication that all was not as dire as some suspected. Now we’re hearing reports from two outlets that the Twilight supercouple have been meeting in secret.
A source told People that they met in Los Angeles last weekend and that Rob’s friends “think they’ll be a couple again.” He reportedly has discovered that moving on is “clearly harder than expected.” And two separate sources also told E! Online that Rob and Kristen have been talking and have met in two different locations.
This sounds pretty promising, especially since it’s coming from multiple sources. What do you guys think?

Full disclosure time: Jimmy Fallon stole my date. OK, it was seven years ago. But it still stings. I took her to a Broadway play and she mysteriously didn’t come back after intermission. I went to the lobby to investigate, only to find her laughing and chatting it up with some dude. Who the hell is this joker!? I tapped him on the shoulder and was then blinded by the brilliantly white smile of Mr. James Fallon. Oh, it’s a very successful SNL joker. He offered his hand in greeting, and I knew then that my date was over. I finished the show solo.
So in honor of Jimmy Fallon’s birthday today, I decided to make a roundup of his most ridiculous costumes through the years. It’s all part of the healing process. I bet you feel really silly now, don’t you Jimmy!? You and your boyish good looks, and hilarious talk show with great guests, and your million dollar salary! Err…ok, fine, I probably would have missed our date to hang out with him, too. From his SNL classics like “The Barry Gibb Talk Show” and “Celebrity Jeopardy” to his uncanny impression of Neil Young on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, all of his craziest outfits are here. So head on down to the gallery below and enjoy!
And Sydney, if you’re reading: How about that second date?

Woah, all this talk about Amanda Bynes and how she’s the next Lindsay Lohan and Lindsay Lohan rears her head again! And it looks like she’s back to her old tricks. LiLo was arrested this morning in New York City after supposedly tapping a pedestrian with her Porsche Cayenne around two in the morning. This happened around the Dream Hotel in downtown NYC where she was apparently about to park her car. She ended up hitting this poor dude’s knee instead, or so he claims. Also, and here’s just an FYI. The owner of the Dream Hotel is Vikram Chatwal, who Li.Lo had a fling with earlier this year. Or may still be having a fling with, for all we know.
Back to the story though. Here’s the problem: While she should’ve checked to see if the guy was okay, since she hit his knee (even though it was at a really slow speed), she and some friends waltzed into the hotel. Only one of her posse checked to see if the car was harmed, not the alleged victim.
UPDATE: TMZ reports that surveillance footage shows that it’s unclear whether the car ever made contact with the man, who then ran after Lindsay. When she exited the car, she appeared completely unaware that she hit a person.
The guy then called 911 and was taken to the hospital, where he checked out okay. According to the surveillance video, Lindsay left the club minutes after entering it, and then returned again. It was after she left the second time that cops arrived to take her into custody. TMZ‘s sources say she was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident, but was subsequently released with something called a desk appearance ticket. That translates into her not having to post bail before being let go. No booze was involved, reports say.
Could this be more trouble for Lindsay who is currently on probation? We’ll just have to wait and see. Looks like she shouldn’t have tweeted Bynes about going to jail, huh. Let’s not tempt the fates, Lindz.
