Washington D.C. is famously known as “Hollywood for ugly people,” so perhaps it’s no surprise that when the candidate in question is a genuine celebrity they have an unfair advantage over their election rivals, especially considering the uniform unpopularity of career politicians. Some celebrities have quietly served their home districts in Congress or local office while others have ascended to the highest seats of power in the land. Read more…
Amidst the People’s Choice Awards‘ teleprompter flubs, boring video packages, and less-than-funny hosting was some surprisingly foxy fashion. Traditionally celebs wait to pull out the big style guns for the Golden Globes or Oscars (or any award show with a televised red carpet) but Taylor Swift, Kristen Stewart, Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez looked every bit the Hollywood starlets tonight at the PCAs. Swift rocked her usual feminine, soft, retro look while Kardashian wore a shimmery curve-hugging dress. KStew looked better than ever in an ultra-mini Reem Acra dress and sky-high heels.

Did we miss any of your favorite looks of the night? Let us know in the comments.
Got a spare $1.6m? If you do, you could do better than buy Sienna Miller‘s old London pad, which is up for grabs for nearly $500,000 off the original asking price! Sienna’s two-bedroom house in Paddington, London, has apparently been sitting on the market unsold for five months — and after seeing the pics, we’re lusting over the open-plan layout that gives this London house a loft feel, the floating staircase and mezzanine floors. But the real icing on the cake is the super-cool sunken Turkish bath which takes up the whole of the basement level. Amazing. Just imagine the stories that room could tell. Ugh, now our head’s full of a naked Rhys Ifans, her ex-boyfriend. Maybe not. [Photo: WireImage]
Scarlett Johansson is a lucky girl. She boasts an amazing acting career, hot husband, gorgeous face and now — in what surely must be the icing on the cake for her! — the best breasts in Hollywood. The naturally-endowed star has topped the poll, compiled by Access Hollywood, and even beat out Salma Hayek‘s famous baby-feeding boobs. Other stars who were “honoured” for their impressive racks were Halle Berry, Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Love Hewitt. Who needs that Oscar?

Madonna forgot her adoption troubles last night for a few hours at least, when she stepped out for dinner at London’s swish Cecconi’s restaurant with pal Stella McCartney. The predictable hordes of photogs were on hand to snap the star – who performed the bizarre trick of actually looking tipsy before she went in and sober afterwards. On the left, Madonna arrives. On the right, Madonna departs with Stella. Huh. Still, good to see her letting her hair down again!
Madonna returned to the UK yesterday without the little girl she hoped to adopt from Malawi. The Sun reports that Mercy James spent time in tears crying, “Where’s my mummy?” after Madonna and her family left the African country. With an appeal already in process, Madonna looked sad as she arrived at London’s Luton airport, where Guy Ritchie was on hand to greet son David Banda. He’s set to spend a week with him and eldest son Rocco at his home in Wiltshire, while Madonna and Lourdes returned to her central London house. The star is said to be prepared to do “whatever it takes” to succeed in her adoption plans. [Photo: Getty Images]
Cris Judd is still around and his life is still dictated by Jennifer Lopez, y’all. Our favorite of her ex-husbands/fiancés (just because he was clearly so unsuited for the job) is currently choreographing a Chippendales tour which kicks off in Britain shortly. (Yes, we know). Speaking to the UK’s Closer magazine, poor old Cris bemoans his inability to find a woman since splitting with J.Lo back in 2002.
“I want to get married and start a family … I’m not seeing anyone at the moment but I wish I was. I’ve had girlfriends since Jennifer but they always compared themselves to her, and we ended up splitting up.”
Aw, diddums. Never mind, who needs romance when your career’s going so well? [Photos: Splash News Online]
The daily, if not hourly coverage of UK reality star Jade Goody’s inevitable death from cervical cancer is beginning to take on a macabre twist. On the same day that Britain’s OK! magazine published a hideously tacky “tribute issue” to the 27 year old, before she’s actually died (complete with celebrity “pals” talking about her in the past tense), an announcement was made about a cancer diary book coming out about her life.
“It is impossible not to be moved by her heart-warming voice which comes through loud and clear on every page of this last diary. This emotional book tells a fascinating story of our time, a story of a woman who rose to fame as a controversial reality TV star and has now won admiration in the eyes of many for the fortitude with which she is facing terminal cancer,” says Belinda Budge of publisher HarperCollins.
As the book’s not going to come out until after she’s passed, it feels more and more like an entire industry is poised over this poor girl, waiting for her to go. If not only so The Sun can stop its daily barrel-scraping headlines of “Jade’s Last Look At Sunny Fields” and “Jade’s Last Party.” Sad. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Is Kabbalah part of the contract everyone signs when they ask for permission to hang with Madonna? We’re only asking because her London-based BFF Gwyneth Paltrow was snapped last night wearing the scrawny piece of red string around her wrist. It’s already crystal clear that Madonna demands her men fall into line with her beliefs – she’s currently hauling embryonic Jesus Luz into the Kabbalah Center regularly and A-Rod‘s ex-wife Cynthia accused the star of using the “religion” to lure her husband. A British paper recently called Madge the Ã¢â‚¬Ëœworld’s most boring date’ for this habit of only taking her conquests out for a nice sesh of religious brainwashing teaching for their dates, but is she also the world’s most ridiculously demanding friend, too?
Fed up with the recession? All you need to do is ‘man up’, apparently. For some random reason we can’t quite fathom, Mr T is in the UK and has decided to bully the British people out of the current economic woes.
“If you get knocked down, setbacks in life, like applying for a job if they don’t hire you, keep trying, keep getting up, keep doing it. Don’t give up, that’s what it’s about,” he said.
Wow – thanks! We would have never realized that before. Although, perhaps he should have thought twice before describing the UK’s national sport as ‘wimpy soccer’. Ah. We wouldn’t advise him to walk around certain parts of the country now, no matter how tough he is. Many ‘soccer’ fans won’t appreciate that advice coming from a middle-aged 1980s actor.
