The world’s super-rich can afford pretty much anything. A gold iPhone case just for kicks? Done. Tiny, unnecessary diamond shavings on a chocolate cake? You got it. So, why is it that some of Earth’s top earners can’t hire…ya know, a stylist?
Is Mary-Kate Olsen about to take a big step? Is Honey Boo-Boo getting a younger sibling? And is Liam Neeson‘s new flick worth a trip to the theater?
The Gossip Table panelists look at celeb’s cutest Throwback Thursday photos, Winona Ryder was once fired over one of her legendary roles, and the RoboCop remake has a new trailer.
With the reports that he recently completed a stint in rehab for cocaine, Zac Efron’s getting more buzz (oops) than any of his recent movie roles. That’s not to suggest he fell into a dangerous drug habit on purpose, mind you. But we have noticed cocaine has played a role in the lives of quite a few actors who got an early start in Hollywood — and it wasn’t necessarily to their benefit. If the rumors of the High School Musical star (whose upcoming movies include Parkland and Neighbors) trashing hotel rooms and missing shoots are true, we’re pretty glad he got help. Here are some other former teen/child stars whose cocaine use got in the way of us taking their adult careers seriously:
Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy have been dating since May, but after an uptick in their public appearances (and PDA) of late, it seems like the world is still coming to terms with whether this couple is creepy, cute or just plain odd. But if we keep harping on the age difference between the 25-year-old actress-turned-fashion mogul and her 42-year-old businessman BF, we’re missing something else in this story: French guys are the hottest new accessory for Hollywood ladies. First we saw Halle Berry and her delicious actor fiance Olivier Martinez. Then Aussie beauty Melissa George, after her split from Russell Simmons, hooked up with French millionaire Jean-David Blanc and was recently spotted shopping for wedding dresses.
Hilary Swank took up with French real estate broker Laurent Fleury this fall, and already they’re said to be sharing his apartment in Paris when they’re not going for romantic walks in Venice Beach. And just this week, Scarlett Johansson was spotted in New York with Romain Dauriac, the former editor of French art magazine Clark, whom she may have met through her tattoo artist.
We have no way of knowing if all these French paramours share anything in common besides incredibly sexy accents (and possibly bank accounts large enough to keep up with these successful ladies), but it’s nice to know the only ones who’ve dreamed of being swept off our feet by a barely shaved, impossibly masculine guy who also knows how to order wine and make us feel like a princess. Not to buy into stereotypes or anything.

Oh man, these new photos of Mary Kate Olsen and her much older boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy are worrisome. Sadly for MK, once you’re a child star, you’re always a child (star) in that every time I look at her precious face I see that of a Michelle Tanner. Now, with MK already dating someone quite a bit older than her actual age, and I see her severely deflated age, it’s like watching a ten year old date a fifty year old. Their actual age difference is a bit smaller but like I said, I’ll always see Michelle Tanner.
You know who else will always see Michelle Tanner?

The hot sun, the warm sand, the intoxicating scent of bug spray: yes, the summer time is prime time for hook-ups, both celebrity and original flavor. From the clam-chowder-and-madras-plaid love of Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy, to the surprise engagement of Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger (their wedding is going to be designed by Hot Topic, right?), check out our favorite hook-ups from summer 2012, and wish you hadn’t spent the last three months inside on your computer:
Katie Holmes is sticking to her passion for fashion through her very public divorce from Tom Cruise. So much so that a spokesperson from Holmes’ brand, Holmes & Yang, announced that they will be putting on a presentation during New York Fashion Week in September of this year. This is Holmes & Yang’s debut at New York Fashion Week and they will be showcasing their spring collection. It seems like more celebs than we can count have dabbled in the fashion industry along with being musical artists or actors. Gwen Stefani with her punk rock L.A.M.B line and of course Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen with their high fashion design line, The Row. Justin Timberlake, Selena Gomez, Coco, and Victoria Beckham are also no strangers to the world of fashion. These multi-talented go-getters show their spunk, individuality, and sequins (of course, Coco) in their designs. Head down the gallery below to see what they’ve come up with for the catwalk!

Hey everyone, get ready to feel super old! For most of us, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are pretty much frozen in our minds at around age 9, but the girls actually turn 26 years old today! So let’s all send out some hearty birthday wishes to the Olsen Twins. But whatever you do, don’t call them “the Olsen Twins.” If you do, you’re in big trouble mister! The duo have worked hard to shed their child-star past and forge their own individual identities, and being lumped together under the dreaded “T” word reportedly pisses them off.
They’ve sure come a long way from literally playing the same character on Full House! Mary-Kate and Ashley blossomed into teen tycoons, with an empire rumored to be worth well over a billion dollars! But there’s one thing that money can’t buy: a multi-decade retrospective of your cutest styles, from way back in that land called the 80s, all the way to now. Consider it our birthday present to you, ladies! Head on down to the gallery below and bask in the adorability and the “predictability.”

It’s not that Sarkozy, guys. Not Nicolas Sarkozy the outgoing French president and Carla Bruni‘s hubby. Mary-Kate Olsen has snagged for herself his half-brother, businessman Olivier Sarkozy. A source reveals, “It’s true, they’re dating, and she’s definitely interested in him. MK is constantly complaining about boys not being mature enough for her. She got the kids out of her system. Now being a businesswoman dominates her time, and she is rarely impressed with guys.” She definitely has the kids out of her system — Sarkozy is 42 and Mary-Kate’s 25. That’s a 17-year age difference. But we guess that’s what a businesswoman wants these days. We don’t mean to sound snarky, but “sources” can be so condescending sometimes! Just to drill the point even further, a second source also chimed in with, “They are good for each other.”
The eternal romantic in us thinks, good for them. There’s nothing like dating a Frenchman to keep things fresh. The new couple have reportedly been together for a month, and have already been spotted at a Knicks game and at the Hamptons over the Memorial Day long weekend. Excellent, lovers. More power to you. Now, if only Olivier would get Mary-Kate to stop wearing burlap sacks and throw some color in. You’ve got a new man, MK … lighten up!
