Hands up who remembers the summer of ’05 and the Skinny Bitches brigade? Team Leader Rachel Zoe commandeered a crack platoon of undernourished size 0 young Hollywood stars, and chief among them at the time was Lindsay Lohan.
Recently, she’s managed to regain some of those curves that made her so damn cute in Mean Girl, but snaps of her last week in New York make us think that Lindsay’s getting nostalgic for those heady mid-Noughties days. Here’s a picture, at right, of Lindsay in early ’08 to compare it with.
Eeek. Don’t go back to the bad old days, LiLo. You don’t want to end up with a raisin face. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Oh, that crazy pop pixie! After pledging to stay celibate in 2009, Katy Perry says it’s just a joke after all, and yes, in fact, she does want some.
“I am not going to be celibate. That was a joke! Celibacy? I’d rather die. I’m looking for the right one,” reports the UK’s Sunday Mirror.
Clearly, Katy has a problem here – she’s just too funny. After all, her “comedian” joke about Lily Allen being fat was taken the wrong way, and now this! Poor Katy. The world just hasn’t recognised her incredible comic talent yet. [Photo: FilmMagic]
Despite being 50, it’s clear that Madonna is still totally kickstarting trends. One of the biggest “whaaa?” stories that emerged in the wake of her divorce from Guy Ritchie was The List. Yes, that list of rules that he had to abide by while looking after their kids, namely making sure they didn’t have any fun by not watching TV, only drinking Kaballah water and reading Mummy’s English Rose stories. Now the Madonna for our times, Rihanna, has issued her fiancé friend Chris Brown with a list of similar bossy demands for while he’s off on tour.
“She has banned female members of his entourage from being alone with him in his room and said no girls can be there past midnight,” reports the London Paper, as well as insisting he doesn’t dance with any girls in clubs.
Apparently, Rihanna’s set to come back to the UK in time for Chris’s gig this Sunday, just to check up on him, you know. OK, we get it. Ladies, step away from The Chris Brown. His friend doesn’t like it. [Photo: Splash News Online]
It’s impossible to underestimate how much Cheryl Cole was the UK’s woman of 2008. A singer in group Girls Aloud, she’s been famous for years over here, but being made the new X-Factor judge (sorry, Sharon who?) by kingmaker Simon Cowell took her into another level of adoration. We loved the way she was able to weep prettily at the contestants’ sob stories without ruining those china-doll looks, her down-to-earth Newcastle manner, her envious fashion wardrobe and the fact she’d turned it around since her soccer star husband Ashley was accused of cheating on her (yes, our thoughts were WHY? too). Anyhow, up until now Cheryl has remained a fairly British phenomenon. But not for long! Simon wants to bring her over to your fair shores and a spot on Oprah.
“He’s certain he can turn her into a global star, but he just needs to iron out her visa problem. He’s employed a firm of experts in Miami and is confident they will be able to reach some kind of arrangement,” a source tells The Sun.
Ah, yes, the visa problem. Cheryl had a little problem back in 2003 when she was found guilty of assaulting a nightclub attendant in a toilet. But hey, that’s in the past, and surely the nice US visa people will see past a little youthful misfortune? In the meantime, just remember her face and do the best you can to understand her Geordie accent… [Photo: WireImage]
We don’t have much to say about this recent snap of Tom Cruise, on the publicity trail for Valkyrie. Suffice to say that wouldn’t you be scared if this rictus face loomed up at you from out of nowhere? And, has he lost a teeny bit too much weight? Two very important issues to ponder upon as the weekend approaches. Happy Thinking! [Photo: Splash News]
Whoah. It seems like Jennifer Aniston is on a mission to prove to all of us we may have been underestimating her capacity to shock. First America’s Sweetheart says the F-word during her interview with Entertainment Weekly and now she gets her boobs out in a new 2009 calendar (which we suspect is deeply unofficial). Seriously. Jen poses in her T-shirt underneath a waterfall — yes, that everyday occurrence — and gives us a detailed look at those famous A-list knockers. (Very NSFW)
Blimey. One thing’s for sure, the whole year’s going to be stuck on November in many households. Ahem. [Photo: Getty Images]
Oh, we know it’s a little bit cheap, but it’s still one of our favorite celebrity photo games — it’s called Before and After. Kate Winslet looked L.A. fresh as she turned up for the NY premiere of her buzzworthy new flick The Reader — all blond highlights, golden skin and super-sexy dress. But after leaving the film’s afterparty at the Bowery she looked a little bit more like the traditional British girl she really is — a little more dishevelled, a little more ,er, “unsteady” on her feet. We love it that un-groomed Kate is still there underneath it all! [Photo: Splash News Online]

Woo! It has been ages since the last proper celebrity sex scandal in the UK, but this weekend has seen one of our biggest and richest stars at the receiving end of a very juicy accusation. According to the News of the World, sweary chef and uber-brand Gordon Ramsay has been having it off with someone other than his wife Tana for the last seven years. His alleged mistress, Sarah Symonds, even wrote a book last year called Having An Affair? A Handbook For The Other Woman. Useful! Gordon has reportedly been meeting Sarah at various London hotels for “sex sessions” this past week alone, even once at the Marriott Hotel which contains his very own restaurant, Maze. And the scarlet woman was spotted shopping for vials of amyl nitrate before meeting up with Gordy-boy.
“Sarah said Gordon had specifically asked her to go to Soho and get him some poppers for their romp. He likes the buzz,” reports the paper (and many more salacious details, too).
While there’s always a neat element of schadenfreude to hearing of the possibility that a mega-rich celebrity who pimps out his reputation as a devoted family man is anything but, it amazes us just how famous people think no-one will ever find out. And we wonder how this will affect his relationship with business partner and head of Gordon Ramsay Holdings, Chris Hutcheson, who happens to be Tana’s dad. Still, the couple managed to do the requisite “we’re still together” poses for the paparazzi yesterday, although didn’t actually comment on the allegations themselves. We’re sure those happy smiles lasted long after the cameras packed up and left, yes? [Photo: Splash News Online]
Just like many of us in the dark, gloomy, cold Britain that passes in November, it’s reassuring to know that not all celebs are whooping it up at the coolest, most exclusive parties not open to the rest of us mere mortals. No, some of our biggest stars are holed up inside, keeping warm and watching The X-Factor, too, just like Amy Winehouse! Yes, Camden’s former reigning caner queen actually prefers a cosy night in shouting at the TV, according to another legendary intercom interview reported by the News of the World. In it, Amy spends most of her time ranting about the popular talent show.
“Let me say one thing that is pertinent and I won’t swear on it either. It’s got nothing to do with Simon Cowell, although everything that’s wrong in the world probably does. I mean he’s the reason that all them hairdressers haven’t taken their pictures out of the window since the Sixties,” she said, while also accusing fellow judges Louis Walsh of not “knowing sh*t” and Dannii Minogue of being “so embarrassing”. But star judge and the UK’s woman of the hour Cheryl Cole is the exception, with Wino believing the Girls Aloud singer fancies her.
Move over Sam and Lindsay! If this ever were to happen, your time as reigning celesbian queens is OVAH.

It feels like a long time ago now when Mark Wahlberg and Kate Moss were the coolest Calvin Klein models on the planet – probably because it is. And while they’ve both kept their star quality intact – although Mark sadly ditched the ‘Marky Mark’ name – we still like to think that these two super-sexy 90s icons might have fancied each other when posing for those semi-nude black and white shots. Nope, no luck. Instead it seems Mr Funky Bunch thought the supermodel looked like a boy.
“It was OK. I wasn’t into the waif thing. She kind of looked like my nephew. I mean she’s beautiful – she’s a very pretty nephew – but I’m more into curvy women,” he told British magazine Nuts.
Hmmm, from the look of the archive photo above, it definitely seems a lack of chemistry is dominant here. Just look at the way they’re totally ignoring each other! Sexy!
