We’re not suggesting they’re doing this on purpose, mind you, but yeah, sometimes it’s a little too obvious that the rich and beautiful have wayyyy better holidays than we do. We’re stuck freezing our butts off at home, or numbing our butts off as we wait in airports going to and from relatives’ homes, while they’re showing off their perfectly toned butts in tiny bikinis in Hawaii. OK, rant off. Instead, we will ring in the new year by vicariously enjoying how hot Brandy looks in Hawaii right after announcing her engagement; what incredible bodies Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have, how happy Sofia Vergara looks on that boat, how comfortable Jessica Simpson is with her second pregnancy cleave, how the sun loves Rita Ora by the pool, how naughty Rihanna is in that photo we can’t post here and how nice in the one we can … Well, just check these all out for yourself. And if you find yourself feeling bitter again, just remember that they probably can’t indulge in that second glass of eggnog like you can.
Everyone knows that the holiday season is one of the most romantic times of the entire year. We blame Love Actually. And now it looks like Christmas came early for famous ladies like Kelly Clarkson, Crystal Harris and Kat Von D as their beaus got them all a pretty sweet gift: An engagement ring! The trio all took to Twitter to give fans a glimpse of their new rocks. American Idol alum Clarkson flashed her bling backstage at VH1 DIVAsafter boyfriend Brandon Blackstock popped the question over the weekend.
Top DJ Deadmau5 took the opposite approach and actually proposed to girlfriend Kat Von D on Twitter this Saturday! The on again off again couple reunited in November after breaking up in September, so we’ll see if the notoriously tempestuous two-some make it to the alter. But we saved our biggest reservations for Crystal Harris, who showed off her second engagement ring from Hugh Hefner last week. Why second, you ask? Because she sold her first one after she left the 86-year-old at the alter last year. Ooof. Good luck, you crazy kids. With all these engagements in the air, we thought it was time for another round of Guess The Celeb Rock. Head on down to the gallery below and test your ring knowledge!

The LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala Honoring Ed Ruscha and Stanley Kubrick presented by Gucci turned out to be a pretty well-attended, fashion-savvy event this weekend. Teeming with A-listers, since Gucci was headlined, most of the ladies wore the brand. We do have Robert Pattinson in our gallery as well, because he’s Robert Pattinson, and he looked devastating in his sharp Gucci suit. Also wearing Gucci was Amy Adams, who glided in a yellow Spring 2013 strapless column with a train and Amber Valletta who was dramatic in a deep green, ruffled, halter-necked gown. Florence Welch (who also performed at the event) looked stunning wearing deep purple Gucci with a gold Grecian headband that worked like a dream with her red hair and pale skin. Bella Heathcote wore a white frock with paillettes and an embellished neckline, which was similar to Amber Heard‘s only the latter’s was in black and gold. There was even more Gucci thanks to Minka Kelly‘s stark black number, Evan Rachel Wood‘s sexy gold dress and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s leggy, backless emerald gown. Ginnifer Goodwin wore a risque dress from the Fall 2012 collection that featured a bold feathered green skirt and black, sheer panelled blouson. Cameron Diaz‘s body was to die for in a bright yellow mini-dress, while her gal pal Jennifer Aniston brought the va-va-voom in a plunging gown by Tom Ford. Breaking out of the brand was another Jennifer, Jennifer Morrison, who chose a slashed black Reem Acra jumpsuit. Some of the looks worked — Evan, Amy, Amber and then some — and some, we’re not quite sure of, like Cameron and Jennifer M’s. But at least this was a red carpet that had interesting, envelope pushing looks. Check out our gallery to see all the rest.
“My mouth is the Don King of my penis,” John Mayeronce wrote on Twitter. We don’t totally know what it means, but it sounds vulgar and gives our brain the bad touch. And that, dear friends, is the general sensation we get when reading John Mayer quotes! They’re so confounding, we bet they even make Charlie Sheen scratch his head in bewilderment. Whether he’s describing his past sexual conquests, what it means to be a man, or even what it is that makes him so damn popular, Johnny has found ways of pissing people off left and right with his loose lips. Everyone remembers his infamous 2010 Rolling Stone profile, but the guitar hero has had a way with words much longer than that. He has since apologized for “those dumb interviews,”…but not for breaking Taylor Swift’s heart. John turns 35 years old today, and he’s been reasonably well behaved lately. With age comes wisdom, ehh? Or maybe he’s just hired a publicist. But in honor of his big day, let’s look back at a few of our personal favorite John Mayer quotes. Enjoy!
How could you not love Jennifer Aniston even more after the release of this so called “Secret Footage”? In a new ad for Smartwater, Jen pokes fun at herself and all the ridiculous rumors that have been circulating about her in recent years, and there’s no question that Jen has been put through the ringer when it comes to tabloid headlines. There have been so many that it’s getting pretty hard to keep up! So with a little help from Ryan Seacrest and Jimmy Kimmel, Jen finally puts most of the gossip to rest — or does she? Take a look at what gossip she includes, makes up, and doesnt include at all!
The rumors confirmed!
She’s a ditz.
She has an insane workout routine.
She wears a wig.
Call the Enquirer with these scoops:
Jimmy Kimmel is her son, whom she’s been hiding for years.
She has an alien baby.
Her pool is filled with Smartwater.
She’s pregnant with triplets.
She finishes her nighttime routine by saying, “Goodnight, Rachel.”
We’re glad that Jennifer Aniston is doing her part to demonstrate how woman walking around in their bras isn’t always sexy. Sometimes it’s sexiness combined with confusion and despair, like in college when the fire alarm would go off in the middle of the night and you’d be forced to stumble out of your dorm in a half-dressed panic. Celebrities: they’re just like us at our most confused! To wit, Jen paired her undergarments with a distraught frown on the set of We’re The Millers this weekend, though now that we look at these photos again…it sure doesn’t look like they’re actually shooting a scene. Is Jen just waiting around with her top open for no reason? Is her outfit part of the movie at all? Man, Just when we thought we couldn’t like her more!
Maybe Aniston is just ambling around with her lady parts out to distract the media from her engagement ring…or lack there of. People has been trying harder to get photos of Jen’s rock than we’ve tried to do anything in our lives, and on Friday they may have struck pay dirt, seeing as how Aniston was snapped leaving a movie theater in North Carolina wearing a plain gold band. Wow, did Jen go for something understated rather than a giant rock? A simple gold ring and a shirt unbuttoned to the waist: looks like we have a new style icon to emulate1
After a whirlwind 15-month reign as the most unhateably ecstatic couple, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Therouxhave announced their engagement today! The two Wanderlust costars have been on a romantic wanderlust of their own since May of last year, and in the process have given us some truly adorable photo ops. It’s incredible, we never thought we’d be happy to see her with anyone other than Ross Geller! So as our way of saying congrats, we’ve assembled a timeline of their relationship, as well as our picks for their 12 cutest photos of all time. Enjoy!
2007: The pair met while Jennifer was visiting the set of Tropic Thunder. The film was co-written by Justin Theroux with Jen’s good friend Ben Stiller.
Summer 2010: Met again on the set of Wanderlust. Jennifer was actually in this one, as was Justin. She claims to have not recognized him at first because of his long hair and beard he had for the film.
Why are we hopping up and down on one foot at this news? We don’t really know, but it’s our way of expressing joy. Our girl Jennifer Aniston is engaged! You should be hopping too. Her boyfriend, now fiance, Justin Theroux had a double celebration on Friday, when he celebrated his 41st birthday, and asked Jen to marry him! His spokesperson spilled the beans to People, saying, “Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage.” Spokesperson … or poet? We’ve been hoping that these two would go the distance and every passing milestone in their relationship made us feel like it was going to happen. Like when they moved in together. Or when Jen and Justin sent out that joint Christmas card. Come on — she got her man to breakdance on the Ellen show in front of the whole world! If that didn’t indicate just how serious they were about each other, we don’t know what would. So, yes. We are thrilled she’s getting married and are going to keep our ears in flap mode for any wedding stuff including — and this is the big one — what she’s going to wear. And during this happy moment, can we please request that the world switches off snark mode? Let’s not go into the fact that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may be getting hitched and just leave this to two people doing their thing without any other ulterior motive other than wanting to get married to each other. Okay? Cool.
We all get by with a little help from our friends, but celebs even more so. After all, Hollywood is a tough biz, and the only way to survive the ups and downs of Tinseltown is by surrounding yourself with a few true pals who will stick by your side in good times as well as during the bumps and slumps. We’ve long loved the enduring bond Oprah Winfrey and her BFF Gayle King share, and got teary-eyed this awards season watching Busy Phillips escort her nominated pal Michelle Williams to every event in town. And who can resist dudes like Tom Sturridge andRobert Pattinson and Jay-Z and Kanye West, who are always on hand to support each other’s personal and professional triumphs?
And then there are gals like Snooki and J-Woww, who have stuck by each other from day one in the Jersey Shore house. Through booze, bitch slaps, anonymous note-leaving, Vinny sex and drunken fights on the streets of Italy, they’ve never left each other’s side. The girls have a new reality show premiering tonight on MTV chronicling — what else? — the ups and downs of their friendship. In honor of their unbreakable bond, we’ve got 35 of the Most Adorable Celebrity Besties in the gallery below. Have a fave pair? Shout ‘em out in the comments.
Kristen Stewart is more than just a beautiful, frowny face. She’s a beautiful, frowny face who could sleep on a pile of $1,000 bills if she wanted to. And why wouldn’t she want to? The woman is human after all. Earlier today. Forbes ranked KStew number one on their newly released list of the highest paid actresses; adding up the estimated $12.5 million she pulled in for each Breaking Dawn flick and her leading role in Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen raked in a cool $34.5 over the past 12 months. There are some very familiar faces on the list (which we’re going to make you ponder before you click the jump, because we like to keep you guessing), but our question is: guys…why the fudge isn’t Scarlett Johansson in the top ten?
Let’s think about this, shall we? Johansson was a lead character in last month’s The Avengers, which has so far earned $1,421,000,000 worldwide, not to mention her turn in the admittedly forgettable We Bought A Zoo last December. If Forbes is counting the money KStew made off this month’s Snow White, clearly they should have counted ScarJo’s Avengers paycheck. If ScarJo earned less than $11 million (the amount pulled in by the lady in the #10 spot) in the last year, we will quit our jobs and become her agent ourselves. We will, so help us Blog!
And now you may see the other women! We doubt you’ll be surprised by most of them. Well, maybe one funny lady…
