Hey Girl, Ryan Gosling Brought His Adorable Dog On Fallon For You

Hey girl, Ryan Gosling’s Jimmy Fallon interview was super cute last night, probably because he knew you’d be watching it today. While visit the show to promote his upcoming movie Crazy, Stupid, Love, your boyfriend brought his floppy dog George along to the set, complete with a sock over his leg to prevent him from chewing on his foot. Ryan even taught that dog to eat an adorable apple as opposed to a big sloppy bowl of Alpo for you. The only reason we don’t think Ryan is a cyborg programmed to make us fall in love with him are those loafers. No man can be completely perfect.

If earlier  this week you were wishing you were a middle-aged weather man after Ryan Gosling lifted Al Roker a la Dirty Dancing, today you’ll wish you were a Turkish bath employee, who’s stomach apparently got wedged in Ryan’s mouth during a scrub-down, according to his anecdote. ““Don’t judge me, but you know how when you eat something weird your brain sends your tongue to investigate?” Gosling timidly admitted. Oh, to be that hairy, sweaty man-belly for a day!

Jennifer Aniston Gets A Tattoo Of Her Dead Dog’s Name

Made in honor of a special man whom she was with for a long time, Jennifer Aniston’s tattoo commemorates his passing from her life. No, it’s Brad Pitt or current man-friend Justin Theroux; it’s not even human, though thank God it’s not a cat. The jokes would write themselves, forever. “That’s my dog,” Aniston told ET Canada about the ink. “My baby who just passed away.” But…you know he wasn’t really your baby, right, Jen? Right?

Welsh Corgi-terrier mix Norman passed away in May at 15 years of age, or 105 in dog years, inspiring the ink on the inside of Aniston’s right foot. “I never thought that would ever happen,” the Horrible Bosses star explained. “It’s just my way to pay homage to him…forever.” Couldn’t have put it better, or creepier, ourselves!

Reese Witherspoon’s Neighbors Hate Her (Pet Donkeys)

Celebrities! They’re just like….you know, like those weird neighbors that keep really loud donkeys for no fathomable reason. Reportedly Reese Witherspoon’s pet donkeys Honky and Tonky having been bothering the families that live near her California farm, though clearly not by having names that aren’t cute enough. Reportedly Witherspoon’s miniature donkeys are constantly braying, and as one local claims “they’re driving us crazy!” But Reese has an Oscar! Doesn’t that sort of balance it out, as far as neighbors go?

Witherspoon’s property is also home to pigs, goats, chickens, and a horse, all of whom probably probably cannot stand Honky and Tonky when they get like this either. “It’s so bad that a few residents have sent her a letter,” a neighbor told Us Magazine, while another wants to reassure the Water for Elephants actress that “She’s beloved here. I’m not even sure she know what’s going on.” They’re just lucky she doesn’t bring home her scene-stealing costar Siam the elephant. She’d do it, too. Everyone knows once you start collecting livestock, you gotta big or go home.

Lisa Vanderpump’s Dog Giggy Face-Plants At GLAAD Media Awards

While Lisa Vanderpump certainly gave her dog a lovely suit to wear at GLAAD Media Awards this weekend, Giggy wasn’t strong enough to face the cameras on his own—falling flat on said face soon after the Real Housewives star set him on the carpet…and he couldn’t get up! Thankfully, Lisa scooped up her living accoutrement and managed to hoist him on stage to pose with Tori Spelling and her pooch.

Also attending the soiree were stars like Amy Poehler, Chaz Bono, Meat Loaf, Marlee Matlin, Dolly Parton, Kirsten Dunst and ultimate FAB icon Chris Colfer, picking up yet another trophy for being awesome. See photos of the celebs (and poor Giggy!) in the gallery below.

R.I.P. Amanda Bynes’ Puppy, Little Angel

Awww, our heart goes out to Amanda Bynes, who just lost her puppy Little Angel, a 4- month old teacup Pomeranian. She tweeted, “Sad day….Little Angel is in heaven now. RIP I love you.” It’s terrible when a pet dies! We don’t know what exactly happened, but Amanda worriedly tweeted yesterday, “Everyone: I have the worst news to tell you….little angel got out of my house somehow and is LOST…If anyone finds her I BEG you to please contact me thru twitter, I will give a reward. She means the WORLD to me & I can’t find her anywhere.”

She hasn’t said what happened to Little Angel, but the whole ordeal has obviously ended badly. This reminds us of when Jessica Simpson lost her Maltipoo, Daisy, to coyotes. Bad luck, Amanda.

Justin Bieber Is The New Face Of Adorable Puppies & Kittens Everywhere

If you’ve ever wanted to take Justin Bieber home, make him a soft bed in a cardboard box and let him sleep next to an alarm clock wrapped in your t-shirtwell, you can’t. That would just be weird. After seeing Justin Bieber’s PETA campaign for pet adoption, however, taking home an abandoned dog or cat might just be next best thing. Already the human equivalent of an lovable pup, Bieber talks on camera about his pet papillon Sam. “We moved to a city where I didn’t really know anybody, so I kinda wanted a friend around,” Justin admits. If that doesn’t make you want to run out and get a homeless pooch or feline, then you, sir or ma’am, have no soul.

Justin joins other celebs like Lea Michele as part of PETA2, PETA’s young adult division, which offiers a refreshing change from PETA’s typical hot-ladies-covered-in-zero-clothes angle (no offense, Pam Anderson!). Bieber, who will be playing the Grammys with Jaden Smith and Usher, explains “It’s really important that people adopt. I really encourage going out to an animal shelter or a place where you can get a dog who has been abandoned or doesn’t have a home.” If we were an abandoned pet, we’d want Bieber on our side, too. Well, we probably wouldn’t know who he was because we would be dogs, but still. You get our drift.

Martha Stewart Learns The Hard Way To Never Canoodle Her Dog


There are certain rules every pet owner must follow if they want to avoid having their pooch accidentally mangle their face, or at least that’s what we infer from news that Martha Stewart’s dog Francesca ripped her lip open. Rule #1: Never baby-talk your French bulldog as she blissfully sails through Dreamland. “As I leaned down to whisper goodbye to a dozing Francesca, I must have startled her, because she bolted upright with such force that she hit me in the face like a boxing glove hitting an opponent’s face,” Martha explained. “I was entirely startled and my neck snapped back. I felt a bit of whiplash as blood gushed forth from my split lip.” Sometimes when you say sweet nothings into your pup’s ear, it suddenly turns into The Fighter, except less Christian Bale and slightly more slobber. Every dog owner has to be prepared for it.

Not only did Stewart describe the incident in gory detail, but she proceeded to post 34 photos of her nine stiches up on her blog. Having just returned from Florida where she was promoting her green housing project, Martha was able to dash back to New York only slightly worse for wear. Meanwhile, Francesca lies in wait for her next opportunity…

50 Cent’s Dog Oprah Is The Ultimate Twitter Diva


Kanye is going to be crying into his $30,000 mink bolero jacket tonight (you know, like every night), because he is about to be replaced by a new, even more fabulous Twitter diva: 50 Cent’s dog Oprah Winfree! We all know 50 Cent’s Twitter feed has all but replaced water and oxygen as the most important things in his life, but last night he upped his tweet game by posting a picture of Oprah wearing doggie Uggs and a sensible periwinkle turtleneck. Tweets the canine Oprah,”Check Out My Uggs Bitch!” She’s allowed to say “bitch”because she’s a lady dog!

Oprah the Dog has a serious Twitter following at 11,480. Oh sorry, we mean 11,481, because we are now officially obsessed with her. But don’t assume that just because Op loves to tweet, she’s totally obsessed with social media. Barked Oprah, “Oh yea I saw that someone made a FAKE FACEBOOK Page for me! I’m NOT ON FACEBOOK ONLY TWITTER.” It was probably just plain ol’ human Oprah trying to steal some puppy thunder. Go get your own massive internet following, Winfrey!

Kat Von D’s House Burns Down


Sad news: Kat Von D is dealing with two major personal losses today. Last night the tattoo artist’s home burned down and, tragically, her cat, Valentine, died in the fire. Luckily Von D was not in Los Angeles at the time of the fire because she’s been traveling for her book tour for The Tattoo Chronicles. However, she Tweeted pictures of herself standing in the aftermath of the blaze and informed her fans of the fire writing “my house burned down last night with my cat inside.” She then posted the above photo with the caption “In order to gain everything, you must lose everything.”

She seems to be pulling  through and has no plans to cancel her book tour, but our hearts go out to her for her huge loss.

Like Creepy Mother, Like Daughter: Shiloh Asked Mom Angelina For “A Dead Pet”


Her mom Angelina might be covered in tattoos and have once worn a vial of human blood around her neck, but in our opinion Shiloh Jolie-Pitt wanting a “dead pet” marks a whole new generation of crazy. The story starts with Shiloh coming across a dead bird. Instead of screaming and crying and/or poking it with a stick like we would have done at her age, she calmly asked her mother if she could keep it. Forever.

Says Angelina, “She came in and said, ‘Can I have a dead pet?’ And I’m … ‘Uh-uh, I don’t think it’s healthy, honey. I think they have to put him in a box,’ and I had to run out to find, like, a taxidermy bird. I just worked it out for her.” See, our parents would have just given us the side-eye and gone back to their issue of Parade magazine, not run out and bought us another dead bird. Either that or they’d open up one of those military school brochures that always seemed to be lying around…

So did 4-year-old Shiloh understand that her mom wasn’t just swapping out one deceased yard critter for another? Says Jolie, “No. But I figured that I couldn’t keep the actual dead bird from the yard, so I swayed her toward one that had been cleaned, at least.” AT LEAST, Angelina. Jolie also went on to describe her daughter as “hilarious.” So…we guess you had to be there. [Photo: Splash News Online]
