Now that’s one hot mama. Jennifer Lopez celebrated her 40th — 40th!! — birthday over the weekend at the Edison Ballroom in NYC. Husband Marc Anthony threw the multitasking diva and mom of twins a surprise party for her big b-day on Saturday night.
According to reports, Jennifer was touched to tears as Marc sang her a song in Spanish, but she was also upset that so many of the guests showed up late. Attending the “An Evening For Lola” bash was Jennifer’s manager Benny Medina, Ricky Martin, sister Linda, L.A. Reid, Alicia Keys and boyfriend Swizz Beatz (latecomers!), and Liza Minnelli. Not in attendance were Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, which allegedly upset the birthday girl.
We hardly need to point out that in her goddess-style Grecian gown and flawless makeup, Jennifer looked totally amazing, too. [Photo: Splash News Online]

How nice to see Suri Cruise having a playdate! The Scientolospawn is so often seen socializing with only adults like mama Katie Holmes or dad Tom Cruise. Today Suri had a playdate with mom and child actress Bailee Madison on the set of Katie’s new film Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, in Australia. The trio played in the trees, got dirty, and checked out the view from a bridge. Playing outdoors just like a real child – hooray! [Photos: Splash News Online]
Being firmly ensconced on the A-list these days means Victoria Beckham can pick some incredible man friends to accompany her to watch husband David Beckham play football. The LA Galaxy player returned for a difficult match against the team he played for last season (and wants to play for again), AC Milan, so Posh wisely surrounded herself with some powerful allies.
As well as her dad Tony and son Brooklyn, Victoria was flanked by Tom Cruise (and a hilarious bored-looking daughter Isabella) on one side and her manager/Svengali Simon Fuller on the other, while British pop star Gary Barlow of Take That was also there. And judging by the hostile reaction of Galaxy fans to the returning Becks, which saw him angrily confront the booing crowd, she probably needed them all. [Photo: Splash News Online]
There have been lots of reports and photo evidence suggesting that Tom Cruise is good pals with David Beckham, but a new book goes into detail about just how close Cruise and Beckham really are. In the forthcoming title, The Beckham Experiment, by Grant Wahl, we learn that Cruise has had quite a powerful impact on Beckham ever since they met in 2003. The two stars share the same agency (CAA), PR flack, physical therapist, and they live five minutes from one another in Beverly Hills. The Cruises even threw the Beckhams a “Welcome to L.A.” party when the family moved across the pond, and Becks claims it was Cruise who convinced him to take the job with the L.A Galaxy soccer team. That’s an awful lot of caring and sharing.
Beckham also admits that his youngest son, Cruz, who was born in 2005, is something of a namesake of Tom. Beckham told Wahl, “I must admit, when [Victoria and I] met Tom, I remember turning around to Victoria and saying, ‘Cruise is a great name, but we could spell it different.”
Beckham does show a measure of resistance though when it comes to Scientology, Cruise’s notorious religion. Beckham says “He and Katie have their beliefs … but me and Victoria have also got our own.” [Photo: Filmmagic]
Forget Perez Hilton’s black eye. Hell, forget Iran. Cameron Diaz has skin problems. The FABlife‘s Becky Howard reported this morning that the actress was given her own star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, but our writer mistakenly focused on Tom Cruise‘s sweaty armpits while missing the real story (don’t worry, she’s been punished), which is all about Cameron’s psoriasis — a skin “disease” that does not easily clear up. And can come back at any time!
According to “celebrity skin expert” Vail Reese, a doctor who hands out the annual Skinnies Awards, there is little hope for Cameron’s skin. “After battling acne for years, yet another skin condition to deal with!,” explains the doctor. “She has also suffered with facial pigmentation issues and sun overexposure.” Oh my. Shouldn’t Hollywood be hiding Cameron, not promoting her? We wouldn’t want this condition spreading to other A-listers. Our economy couldn’t handle it.
Cameron Diaz got her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday, and her ceremony brought out some seriously A-list supporters. Cammy’s pals bigging her up on the achievement included Lucy Liu, plus Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. All the excitement must have got to poor Tom, as he showed off some seriously sweaty pits when going in for a hug. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Take this tidbit with a grain of rice: Suri Cruise apparently insists on only eating with chopsticks. Forget forks, sporks and her dainty little fingers – this celebrity kid eats her Lunchables like she’s downing sushi from Nobu.
According to an anonymous source, Suri “doesn’t like to eat with anything else.” During a recent visit to posh bakery Le Pain Quotidien, Tom Cruise‘s spawn supposedly “wouldn’t touch her sandwich and pastries without them!”
Poor Katie Holmes now has to lug around a pair of her daughter’s preferred eating untensils in her Hermes Birkin bag. Says the spy, “It’s the only way she can get her to eat!” [Photo: GettyImages]
Suri Cruise celebrated her third birthday Thursday afternoon with a princess-themed party at the home of her parents, Tom Crusie and Katie Holmes.
Friends and family ate a cake featuring Belle from Beauty and the Beast and participated in a treasure hunt.
“They just wanted to keep it small and make it fun for Suri and her friends,” a source tells People. [Photo: Getty Images]
What a lucky girl! After her third birthday later this week, Suri Cruise is going to go to school to learn about counting, her ABC and the great works of Xenu. The super cool tot is to attend the Church of Scientology’s New Village Academy five days a week, which has already garnered criticism for some of its teaching methods.
“The children have a lot of responsibilities from a very young age. The school is particularly strict about nutrition, demanding a low-carb, low-sodium and low-sugar organic diet,” reports a source.
Oooh, sounds “fun.” Of course, we’re only joking. Turning three is a serious occasion and it’s about time Suri knuckled down and concentrated on her “study technology.” The fun stops here! [Photo: Splash News Online]
