Teresa Giudice and her husband face major prison sentences, Johnny Depp is getting his iconic red bandana ready, Ellen Pompeo welcomes a baby girl, and more in today’s Last Lap.
It wasn’t only onstage. Lots of gorgeous celebrities either whizzed through the red carpet super quickly at the People’s Choice Awards last night, or chose to skip it entirely, only to appear on stage to accept an award or two. We picked our top 10 from this list and plenty of your favorites are included. Jennifer Lawrence to begin with in a Valentino Fall 2012 Couture dress with Nicholas Kirkwood black satin pumps and Cartier jewels. Love J.Law, but not so enamored by this dress. This is the photograph she’s most working it in, but in others, it ages her and swamps her frame. Then, we have Sandra Bullock in a blue custom Vera Wang strapless bodice and pencil skirt, but what really got us excited, were her hot pink pumps matched with her hot pink lipstick. Jennifer Aniston in Christian Dior surprised us, because even though her dress was her usual black, it was quite playful and featured a flounced skirt. She paired it with Tom Ford black ankle-strap heels and Fred Leighton jewels. Emma Watson wore a jazzy, kaleidoscopic Peter Pilotto with strappy Tabitha Simmons ‘Bailey’ sandals, while Katy Perry was the most toned down we’ve seen in a while, in a demure Valentino Fall 2012 dress with Jimmy Choo suede pumps, Jennifer Behr headpiece, and Sylva & Cie earrings. Hits of gorgeous yellow were provided by Brittany Snow‘s pale daffodil draped Maria Lucia Hohan three-quarters dress and Melissa Rauch‘s bright sunflower Junko Yoshioka gown accessorized expertly with Stuart Weitzman gold heels and a gold Vincent Camuto clutch. Shout out to Ellen Pompeo for busting out some Lanvin as well! Check out all the looks in the gallery below.

Sunday night, the NBA All-Star game court-side at the Staples Center in L.A was studded with celebrities. Rihanna put on a raunchy show singing a medley of her hits with guest performers Drake and Kanye West. She spent the rest of the game chilling with one very happy Justin Bieber while Lenny Kravitz sat one space away. It was also Rihanna’s birthday yesterday so can we please have a chorus of Happy Birthday RiRi!
Right by the Biebs and a flame haired Rih’, were superstar couple Jay-Z and a gorgeous Beyonce, who had the sexiest pair of crystal Christian Louboutin skyscraper pumps on. They looked super-relaxed while chowing down on nachos, so screw the rumors that Jay-and-Bey are separating. They weren’t the only ones snacking while watching the game. Rick Fox and Eliza Dushku chowed down too. Ellen Pompeo and her husband Chris Ivery were watching from the crowds as well. What? No court-side tickets, guys?
Also, in one of the oddest seating arrangements ever, Lil Wayne was sitting next to Maria Shriver, who were a couple of seats away from John Legend and girlfriend-supermodel Chrissy Teigen. The Chicago Bulls mascot , Benny the Bull, got lucky, getting Teigen to sit on his lap while Legend took pictures. Looking far more serious were P Diddy and Nick Cannon who sat together. Shriver wasn’t around without her husband, in case you’re wondering. Arnold Schwarzenegger was around chatting with Gene Simmons.

Izzie? Who’s Izzie? Katherine Heigl confirms that she shan’t be returning to the set of Grey’s Anatomy—which she’s been noticeably absent from of late. “I’m done. We just finalized our agreement. Everyone had been working really hard to find an amicable and gracious way of letting go and moving on. It’s sad but it’s what I wanted.” And sorry, fans…that “amicable and gracious way of letting go” will not involve her returning to tie up any loose ends, making her final appearance in January truly her final appearance. “I know I’m disappointing the fans. I just had to make a choice. I hope I made the right one.”
Though Heigl claims motherhood—and not her rising movie stardom—is what caused her new outlook (“I started a family and it changed everything for me”), we can’t imagine frienemy co-stars like Ellen Pompeo and the writers she dissed by pulling her name from Emmy consideration in 2008 will be sad to see her go. And now she won’t have to deal with those 17-hour-work days…unless her movie stardom goes the way of Shelley Long‘s.

In a move worthy of a dramatic nighttime medical soap opera, people are accusing Katherine Heigl of trying to upstage her co-star Ellen Pompeo by revealing her adoption details on the same day that Pompeo pooped out her new baby. A source familiar with both actresses said that Heigl’s adoption of 10-month-old Naleigh, which was made public on September 15, was planned to detract from Pompeo’s baby delivery. “It was very curious timing for her to drop that. It was an adopted kid — she could have chosen any other day to make it public. Why compete?” the source said.
Then Pompeo announced her baby’s birth yesterday, the same day that Heigl’s People magazine cover was released. Is it all a coincidence that the crew at Seattle Grace have baby fever, or are they really that competitive? Judging from the real-life drama on that set, we wouldn’t put it past them.[Photo: GettyImages]
