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 and Robert 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.
There are lots of times when we can ignore the fact that celebrities live better lives than us (like, this morning, when we read about Sinead O’Connor’s miserable love life, for instance). There are even times when we try to imagine that their lives are JUST LIKE our own (say, on Saturday when Paris, Prince and Blanket Jackson were on my JetBlue flight from the Bahamas to Orlando!!!). But then we get to work and browse through photos like the ones above and below, and realize we a) don’t have friends with yachts, and b) don’t have round-the-clock personal trainers and chefs to make us look amazing during the two months of the year when it’s impossible not to stuff your face daily. Anyway, at least we all get enjoy getting to look at pretty pictures. Democracy in action. Check out these pics of Katy Perry, Kimora Lee and Djimon Hounsou, Russell Simmons and Melissa George, Stephanie Seymour, Jon Bon Jovi, Serena Williams, Coco and Mischa Barton enjoying their Christmas weekend on the beach. And don’t miss our gallery of the 100 hottest celebrity bikini pics of 2011.

We can’t pinpoint what it is exactly that makes us love Katy Perry and Russell Brand as a couple, but it’s getting to be an irrational obsession of ours. They can’t get any more lovey and adorable than they were at last night’s premiere of The Tempest in L.A.—we l.o.v.e. when Katy goes more glam, less whipped-cream bra. She looks fantastic and we could honestly stare at this portrait of cuteness all day.
Brand stars in the film adaptation of the Shakespeare play with Helen Mirren, which is sort of appropriate since we imagine that Helen Mirren is just the older version of Katy Perry: sassy, sexy, and someone who would be really fun to get drunk with. However, Helen wins because she can be all those things and portray Queen Elizabeth II perfectly. Check out all our red carpet photos of the event, but seriously, we dare you not to swoon over these two newlyweds.

He had his first photo spread in OK! at two months old and now at four and a half months, Kenzo Lee Honsou is moving onto the television screen! Kimora Lee and her baby boy filmed scenes for her reality show at Vasquez State Park in Los Angeles on Thursday. The little bundle of joy looks great on camera. Is he a soon-to-be a reality star like half-sisters Aoki Lee and Ming Lee, Kimora’s daughter’s from her marriage to Russell Simmons? [Photos: Splash News Online]
Only a fashionably fabulous name would do for Kimora Lee Simmons and boyfriend Djimon Honsou‘s new baby boy. The couple named their new bundle of joy Kenzo Lee Honsou, after famed Japanese fashion icon Kenzo Takada.
“He’s a little prince,” says a pal. Kenzo joins Ming Lee and Aoki Lee, Kimora’s children from her previous relationship with Russell Simmons. [Source: New York Post; Photo: Getty Images]
Kimora Lee Simmons has always struck us as a bit high maintenance, but the Baby Phat designer kept it real on her Twitter this weekend during the labor and birth of her son. Her third child – with boyfriend Djimon Hounsou – was born on Saturday, and though a name has not been released, her rep did say, “Kimora and Djimon are the proud parents of a new baby boy. Both mother and child are doing great.”
Kimora kept busy during the birth by sending messages to fans. “Having contractions now! Ooo- wee! It’s like WHOA! Love & Light, KLS” she tweeted. She also posted an adorable pic (we’ve got it above) from her hospital bed. We’ve never see her look more fabulous! [Photo: BabyPhat]
Designer Kimora Lee Simmons, Russell Simmons‘ ex, is pregnant with her third child. Actor Will Arnett just had his first kid with wife Amy Poehler. Both TV stars were born on May 4th. Which one is older?
She’s got the voice of an angel, but the feet of a beast. Britain’s Got Talent singing sensation Susan Boyle stepped out on her porch in Blackburn, Scotland wearing a fabulous blue robe emblazoned with stars. But look closely: from far away they may not look like much, but look carefully to see her rough dogs. That Susan is just full of surprises!
