Project Runway winner Jeffrey Sebelia is broke — and designing clothes for the Bratz movie. Which is still, I suppose, a step above going on the Surreal Life and sleeping with a former child star who’s twice your age and half your height. Isn’t that right, Adrianne Curry? [A Socialite’s Life]

Seriously? OMG! WTF? has moved. Update your bookmarks, kids! [SOW]

In college, my friends and I used to play the Movie Title Game. One person comes up with a ridiculous scenario and/or ridiculous pairings of actors, and the other contestants determine the appropriately hilarious title for said film. David Spade is a grocery bagger at Ralph’s? Paper or Spastic? Get it? Okay. So Mark-Paul Gosselaar is a hot-shot lawyer who decides to become an L.A. public defender. His partner? Janeane Garofalo. Go. [Pajiba]

Beyonce Sports Sultry

February 14, 2007

JustJared knows something I didn’t. Beyonce has made the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit issue. Take that J-HUD!

She may play second fiddle at the movies and she might be dating a guy who lies about retirement but she’s still got a fairly smokin’ bod. And here in cyberspace that’s still worth something.

Also, fellas, it might be fun to leave this issue out to make your mate feel inadequate. It’s the only real way to get back at your mother for years of neglect.

Beyonce’s Dad Goes There…

January 19, 2007

Beyonce didn’t win Best Actress at “The Golden Globes” because her crazy daddy thinks the Golden Globes voters are “racist.” I could accept that except Jennifer Hudson, Eddie Murphy, Prince, and Forest Whitaker won their awards and last time I checked…they were all black. Beyonce wasn’t that good to be perfectly honest. She looked pretty and sang her songs well but she really wasn’t Golden Globe or Oscar worthy. The “Best Actress” award is given to an actress that is the best…not the most overly hyped.

I understand Beyonce is a star but that doesn’t mean that she should beat Meryl Streep. Not understanding this, her dad make this awesome and stupid comment.

“Today is MLK’s birthday and it saddens me to say that things have not changed for blacks. Working class blacks and blacks in Hollywood are still being discriminated against. We still have a long way to go.”

I would give that to you, Matthew, except you don’t really have the best history when it comes to Beyonce and “Dreamgirls.” From the beginning he has been sassy about his daughter getting top billing and according to TMZ,

“After an early screening, both Matthew and B’s mom (Tina) flipped over Hudson’s screen time, arguing with writer/director Bill Condon that the flick needed to be re cut and include more B and less J — Condon refused.”

Thanks MollyGood.

Cleaning up the Weekend

December 11, 2006

After almost days of searching, the paparazzi catch Nicole Richie and Joel Madden together. Take that, Hilary Duff. Now you’re left all alone with your hyper-successful, talent-driven career and your consistently positive media image. They sure showed you. [X17]

Paris. Miami. Stavros. [Hollyscoop]

Beyonce’s not the only one pissed that Jennifer Hudson got the role of Effie in Dreamgirls. But at least Fantasia Barrino will cop to it. [Snarky Gossip]

Beyonce is Being a Bit Diva-licious

December 6, 2006

Beyonce is trying to act like she doesn’t care that Jennifer Hudson is totally getting the better reviews for “Dreamgirls” but she isn’t doing a very good job at it. At her film premiere last night she posed for pictures and then abruptly left to hop a plane for her boyfriend JZ’s birthday party. I guess she was too much of a diva to actually sit through the movie with the rest of the cast.

Here are some quotes from miss Beyonce regarding the buzz around the film…

“I’m already a star. I already have nine Grammys. Everyone knows I can sing. I did [Dreamgirls] because I wanted people to know that I can act and I can play someone so different from myself.”

“I knew that the character that I played wasn’t the star … I’m already a star. I already have nine Grammys. Everyone knows I can sing. I wish I could have gained 20 pounds and played Effie.”

Uh, huh you are just trying to make yourself feel better because…

1) You were supposed to get the Oscar nod for your performance but it is Jennifer Hudson’s performance that, according to New York Times reporter David Carr, “seals the show.”

2) Her Majesty Oprah actually called Jennifer personally to let her know that she had a “transcendent performance.” Oprah just doesn’t call everybody personally.

3) Jennifer gets the good songs in the movie including the show stopping “You’re Gonna Love Me.” Which is shockingly good. Nobody has said much about your voice.

4) All the press in the world isn’t going to make people stop about talking about Jennifer Hudson. Oh ya, and you starved yourself to do this movie and she is a full figured beauty who has stolen your star.

I’m so excited to see this movie I can’t even explain.

“Dreamgirls” opens December 15th in (NY/LA) and on Christmas Day everywhere else. Go see it!

The long-awaited video (seriously, it took a whole day — that’s like a lifetime in the blogosphere) of Jessica Simpson running off-stage at the Kennedy Center Awards has at last arrived. [MollyGood]

Reverend Jesse Jackson is urging the public to boycott Seinfeld DVDs after star Michael Richards’ much-publicized racist rant reportedly prompted a spike in DVD sales for the show. My guess is the thought process surrounding most of these purchases went more along the lines of “Oh, hey, I forgot about Kramer. Man, Seinfeld sure was funny. Those DVDs would make a great Christmas gift,” and less along the lines of “You mean that Kramer guy’s a racist? Oh, now I’ll buy the DVDs.” A Jason Alexander crotch shot probably would have had a similar impact. But whatever. [CelebSlam]

Beyonce Knowles and Jennifer Hudson are supposedly having some manner of non-feud regarding who upstaged whom in Dreamgirls. I’m not sure if I believe it less than I care, or vice versa. [TMZ]

Porn star Kendra Jade knows words like “disheartened,” “inevitable,” and “salacious.” That or her publicist does. Either way, she didn’t sleep with K-Fed. She has standards. [JordanIsYourHomeboy]

Sandra Bullock is either pregnant or she isn’t. [Celebrity Smack]

Picking up the Pieces

November 30, 2006

Things that happened today without any involvement on the part of Britney Spears’ vagina:

American Idol fourth-placer Chris Daughtrey’s album debuts at #2 on the U.S. charts. [Perez Hilton]

Check out Beyonce’s new video for “Listen,” from the Dreamgirls soundtrack. [popbytes]

Kevin Federline has a thing for women who like the whole world to see their naughty bits. Isn’t that right, Kendra Jade? [Pop on the Pop]

Josh Hartnett’s mystery girl revealed: she’s Amber Sainsbury, who did some show called Hex for 11 episodes in 2004 and is currently co-starring with Hartnett in 30 Days of Night. Also: she’s not as pretty as Josh, which is how I reckon he prefers it. [BWE]

Nick Lachey bought a minor-league baseball team this week. What did you do? [ICYDK]

Matt Lauer named his newborn son Thijs. Pronounced “Tice.” I am supposed to say something mean here (preferably referencing the unfortunately named Paltrow offspring) but I have a fabulous friend at school named Tejs (pronounced similarly), so out of respect for the fact that he did my finance homework all quarter, I just have this to say: Way to name a kid, Lauer! [Cele|Bitchy]

Stupid Headlines 101

November 28, 2006

This just makes me mad. The headline reads “Beyonce Enjoyed Working on Dreamgirls.” Really? No joke? It wasn’t hell on Earth? Director Bill Condon never once tried to rape her?

I could see if this was coming from some lam-o source like E! but this is AP syndicating to YahooNews. This is the best you can do? Also, FYI Beyonce would like to do more movies. You heard it here second.

Gobble Up These Links (ha ha HA!)

Today in tasteful: unearthed 1986 footage of Michael Richards in blackface. [The Bosh]

When Prison Break first aired, I gave it three hours of my life that I will never get back, then gave up. But Wentworth Miller is still way hot, so check out this interview with him. [Gossip or Truth, more]

If you’re anything like the rest of the country, you’ve been waiting ever so anxiously to hear what a recently divorced Juliette Lewis thinks about former boyfriend Brad Pitt. Thanks goodness she’s finally weighed in. [Agent Bedhead]

The Beyonce/Jay-Z shelf life is nearing its end. Maybe they can time the break-up to coincide with the opening of Dreamgirls. Wouldn’t that be nice? [Rhymes with Snitch]

Stylist Rachel Zoe claims Nicole Richie fired her after she “voiced concerns … about her lifestyle.” [PopSugar]

When asked about Hilary Swank, Chad Lowe takes the high road. No pun intended. [celebrity nation]

And just for the hell of it, really cute pics of Gwen Stefani, Gavin Rossdale and their adorable little critter out shopping. [Dirty Laundry]
