Denise Richards Adopts a Baby Girl.

Denise Richards adopted a baby girl. Umm...ok.

Eloise Joni Richards...good luck. You'll probably grow up fine. I mean, upside, Charlie Sheen isn't your father, so you've already got a better chance than your sisters.

Three Muskateers, Bonjour Again!


Always, always up for a good Three Muskateers movie. This one doesn't look like it's going to be anything super amazing fantastic, but definitely in the realm of entertaining.

Plus, that kid who plays D'Artagnan, Logan Lerman, looks like a standout. He'll be really good, and probably one to watch for. And Matthew MacFadyen, dear latest Mr. Darcy! Can't pass up a movie with him in it.

Orlando Bloom...eh. I could do without it.

BeyonceOcity.

Beyonce Beyonce Beyonce. 

Just her name alone means something. Awesomeness. Fierciocity. Girl is so cool you have to make up new words just to describe her. 
“The album is definitely an evolution. It’s bolder than the music on my previous albums because I’m bolder. The more mature I become and the more life experiences I have, the more I have to talk about. I really focused on songs being classics, songs that would last, songs that I could sing when I’m 40 and when I’m 60,” she wrote.

Save Ginny Weasly from Old Age.

Holy smokes! Harry Potter's Bonnie Wright is all grown up! Also, I feel like those cheeks might be photoshopped, because she looks 40.

Harry is marrying a HOTTIE. Watch out for Ginny Weasly.

The Bachelorette, Episode 4.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

I LOVED WEST. Loved him. I guess technically I should be glad Ashley dumped him since he is too good for her, and I knew they wouldn't work anyways, but...
She kept that dumbass trainer from Tampa, and dumped West. That's what really gets me. West is so, so much better than that dude.

Officially, Ashley has terrible "woman's intuition", which is what she called her lovey lust feelings for Bentley, so...

I mean, she sounded so stupid. It was kind of sad actually.

I ended up liking Ames a lot more than I thought I would- more than, you know, not at all. Which is how I felt about him before. I thought he was one you immediately push aside and don't bother worrying about. I think he surprised America tonight. That's right- all of America. But he still thinks he is the shiz. You can tell he is super impressed with himself.

Constantine still underwhelmed, obviously, but I found his conversation about as scintillating as Ashley's, so maybe they could work.

Tailand is gorgeous, but I kept seeing golf carts in the background, so...I'm sure they're exploring the "real" Tailand, being super adventurous and "spontaneous". Ugh barf.

Also, my mother made a great point- that outfit Ashley was wearing during her dinner with Ames was SHORT. Like, she had to keep pulling her skirt out of her ass crack short. She looked a little stupid, and a little bit like she had a wedgie. They might be overestimating her dancers legs...not sure they can pull off something that short.

I am all about J.P. now of course. LOVE LOVE LOVE him. Everyone else is second best to me. He is so sweet, and so genuine. Unlike that ass Bentley. I actually hope Ashley doesn't give him the attention he deserves. She belongs with...Ames probably.

As for the Bentley stuff for next week? "He's actually in this hotel room...right now". DRAMZ. She goes skipping off to her room like the sophomore girl with low self esteem who could use a little help in the beauty routine to the senior football captain.

Think Tai and Elton from Clueless. Which would make Chris Harrison...Cher. Weird.

The Girl Who Can Pull Off Anything. Almost.

Here's what I like about Kirsten Dunst. She always wears her clothes, and never, ever lets her clothes wear her. So many starlets have that problem.

Even when she is wearing this, she is so close to pulling it off.
Close, but not quite there. The cigarette pants are blowing my mind, not many girls can pull those off, but something about the jacket. Or the shirt. I think it's the blue on the lapel maybe? Maybe it's that the jacket doesn't seem to be made for boobs. So instead of clean lines, it looks like it is pulling. It's bothering me.

She is so fierce though. Serious ice queen, love her. #styleicon for sure.

Emma Watson Gets a Royal Title.

...and that title is badass Pixie Warrior Queen. Seriously, look at her. Girl's frosty.

Emma Watson is so, so fly. Not many woman have the balls to chop off all their hair and rock it like she can. So fly that she can snag the cover of Vogue without even campaigning for it. 

On experimenting in the Harry Potter makeup trailer: “That was my playground. I would sit and play with lipsticks, foundations, and eye shadows; and every now and then [head of makeup, Amanda Knight] would let me do the extras’ face paint for the Quidditch matches.”
On longtime co-star Daniel Radcliffe: “He understood what his role was, not just as an actor but as the leading man in this enormous franchise. And I think that was almost more important in a way. He held it all together. I am very grateful for him.”
On fighting to balance education and work: “I have felt for the last ten years I have had this battle; I’ve been fighting so hard to have an education. It’s been this uphill struggle. I was Warner Bros.’ pain in the butt. I was their scheduling conflict. I was the one who made life difficult. I just realized at one point that I can’t fight everything. I have to move in the direction of it—and go with it.”

All About True Blood, Cherie.

It is just about that time. True Blood is about to start again. Love it. 

I bit the bullet last summer and burned through all the books by Charlaine Harris, and they are fantastic, of course, I'm just hoping it won't spoil anything for me. It was a tough call. But I think a good one. Sometimes it can be a little "What the eff??" for me, so this actually might help.

Here are some cast photos for this season:

The Fame Digger.

Nick Jonas has been spotted with a new lady, Delta Goodrem-nice name, she sounds like a tire company- who is 8 years his senior. Boy loves the older ladies. She is obviously a fame digger.

Because gold diggers are so three years ago. Money is so whatever- fame is what's up.
Plus this girl, I mean...she wants fame like woah. She already has the look, she just needs to get that terrible name out there. She's the girl who takes the nerd to Prom so she can meet up with her boyfriend that her parents don't approve of.

Nick Jonas is the nerd, and someone like Bradley Cooper is the boyfriend.

Darling Pippa is single, according to People. Could it be? Could her and Hot Harry be finally getting together?

I mean, look at that newly slim royal figure. How could he compete?

Conan's Commencement.


Conan O'Brien was Dartmouth's commencement speaker yesterday, and here are a few of his words of wisdom:

  • My first job as your commencement speaker is to illustrate that life is not fair. For example, you have worked tirelessly for four years to earn the diploma you’ll be receiving this weekend. That was great. And Dartmouth is giving me the same degree for interviewing the fourth lead in Twilight. Deal with it.

  • I take my task today very seriously. When I got the call two months ago to be your speaker, I decided to prepare with the same intensity many of you have devoted to an important term paper. So late last night, I began. I drank two cans of Red Bull, snorted some Adderall, played a few hours of Call of Duty, and then opened my browser. I think Wikipedia put it best when they said “Dartmouth College is a private Ivy League University in Hanover, New Hampshire, United States.” Thank you and good luck.

  • Many of you here today are getting your diploma at this Ivy League school because you have committed yourself to a dream and worked hard to achieve it. And there is no greater cliché in a commencement address than “follow your dream.” Well I am here to tell you that whatever you think your dream is now, it will probably change. And that’s okay.

    Bentley Comes Back, Ashley Still Doesn't Get It.

    Le sigh. We all know her. That girl who keeps pining after that guy who could not care less about her.

    The sad part here though is that she has over a half dozen other guys who are chasing after her. It's really getting depressing now.

    We haven't seen the last of Bentley Williams, d-bag extraordinaire, oh no.

    He comes back, but only because Ashley had producers of the show call him every day for two weeks trying to get him to come back.

    Wow. Where was the best friend who rips the phone from her hand? Bad, bad idea. Big mistake. Bentley does end up coming back, host Chris Harrison confirms, but only because, "Ashley wanted a second chance with Bentley, so she begged producers to get him on the phone and get him on a plane out to see her," a Bachelorette insider tells Life & Style. "She couldn’t stop thinking about him after he left her."

    So sad to see people trying to change their love life, and then consistently falling for the guy who doesn't want them. Again. 

    Surprise to no one, he rejects her again when he gets back. A friend states he didn’t have a change of heart and only wanted a free vacation. "He's never been to Hong Kong," the friend notes. Ouch.

    Some have been asking, why wouldn't the show step in, and help Ashley? First of all, it was two weeks in. Who has ever fallen as desperately, cling-ily in love in two weeks with one guy out of 15? Ashley of course. They thought she would a) heed the warning she was given at the beginning of the show or b) figure it out, because not that hard. Just look at him. He's a dbag.


    "If you have information about a guy before he even gets out of the limo, that’s beyond a red flag. We gave her the option and said, 'You don't have to meet this guy. We can pull him.' We justify everything by giving Ashley the power. It was her job to say no," said Chris to People. "We don't step in and say, 'That's the wrong decision.' We never do. She was privy to some of the information. I had many conversations with her about this and so did the producers but she defended him every step of the way. She never heeded any of the warning signs."

    Even he is calling her a dumbass. And he's had like 12 seasons of dumbasses.

    Tre Tre Doesn't Get It.

    Sitting in the car repair office, free wi fi, yay! But I forgot my headphones, so I am blogging to the dulcet tones of the History channel, something about Nostradamus. It's actually kind of freaking me out. He predicted three anti Christs- first, Napoleon, second, Hitler, third...I'm thinking Teresa Guidice? Oh just kidding. She is just normal sauce stupidity. 

    Tre is making me laugh. The above exchange appeared on twitter, and obviously...I mean...I always thought maybe on some level these people must know that people are laughing at them, even playing up their stupidity a little.

    But I doubt it. I think they really act like that.

    Irons' Autopsy Revealed.

    32 year old surfer Andy Irons's mysterious November 2 death was ruled a heart attack. Irons, who died in his hotel room in Dallas in November, had Ambien, Xanax, methodone, cocaine and methamphetamine in his system at the time of his death, as a recently revealed autopsy report finds.

    The three time world champion was on his way back home to Hawaii after withdrawing from a competition in Puerto Rico.
    "A plaque of this severity, located in the anterior descending coronary artery, is commonly associated with sudden death," Dr. Vincent Di Maio, a forensic pathologist, explained to the family, according to the press release. "The only unusual aspect of the case is Mr. Irons' age, 32 years old."

    While Di Maio told the family no other factor contributed to his death, the official toxicology report and autopsy from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner lists a second cause of death as "acute mixed drug ingestion."

    Di Maio believes most of the drugs found in Irons' system, including Xanax and Methadone, were at therapeutic levels. Benzoylecgonine was also found in his system, which is often tested for when conducting cocaine urinalysis. A toxicologist that the family consulted said the levels of Benzoylecgonine were "consistent with the use of cocaine at about 30 hours prior to his death."
    Irons's wife Lyndie was pregnant with their son Andy Axel at the time of his death, he born on December 8.

    Read Outside Magazine's article on the surfing icon to learn more about the circumstances surrounding his death.

    Boring, Boring Boring Blah Blake.

    In other celebrity Italian news, Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio are continued their romp around Italy in fair Verona, where he sat in a church and looked bored while his sex toy took pictures on her iPhone.

    Terrible when your blow up doll insists on going sight seeing.
    Question: why is she sitting on the street, in a puddle like a homeless person? Because she's so free spirited? Nope...I'm beginning to think it's because she has no braincells.
    On the upside, Leo was wearing a ND baseball hat so...I mean, there's that. Probably the most boring and transparent foreign frolic EVER.

    Wiz Khalifa Rolls Up.

    Wiz Khalifa in Interview magazine.

    On what he thinks make him stand out: “I just worked really, really hard to stay in people’s faces, so it would be hard to forget about me. I’m just trying to stay popular and do the same thing over and over. I think that consistency kind of makes what I do gravitate towards becoming a movement. Honestly, I’m just consumed by the work. Everyday, I’m trying to come up with new stuff and do new things. I don’t take time off. I’m always recording and working on my brand beyond just the music. I just try to keep that connection to normalcy.”
    On why he chose to live in Pittsburgh: “There are a lot of different types of people in Pittsburgh. There are a lot of different things going on as far as art and the communities. There’s pop, there’s rap, there’s everything. There is also the darker, street side to Pittsburgh, but I just choose not to elaborate on that. What I bring is more fun and positive—an outside, worldly feel. But being from Pittsburgh, you have room to make up your own sound. People don’t have expectations. We’re not as East Coast in Pittsburgh as people are in Philly, so our vibe is just a little bit different. We’re a little bit more country, more Midwest in general.”
    On his tattoos: “I started getting tattoos when I was, like, 16—that’s when I got my first one. My mom actually took me to go get it. I got it on my left arm. It’s the name of the first rap group that I was in.”

    Weiner Jr On the Way.

    According to The New York Times, Congressman Anthony Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, is pregnant with their first child.

    That is probably the worst timing ever.

    They report,

    Ms. Abedin, 35, is in the early stages of pregnancy, according to three people with knowledge of the situation.
    The pregnancy, which the couple has disclosed to close friends and family, adds a new dimension to questions about the future of their marriage.
    Mr. Weiner, 46, has admitted to engaging in salacious online conversations with at least six women over the last few years, including an incident last month in which he sent a photograph of himself in underwear to a college student in Washington state. He apologized to his wife and declared that they have no intention of splitting up.
    “We will weather this,” Mr. Weiner said on Monday, during his emotional news conference. “I love her very much, and she loves me.”
     Huma Abedin is a longtime aid to Hillary Clinton, which has lost its irony because of how many politician's have had sex scandals, and left for a trip with her to Northern Africa today.

    Probably the place you want to be while all of this is going on.

    The Bachelorette, Episode 3.

    Previews: We all know Bentley is faking this, right?

    I've always wanted to be a part of a flash mob so this is so a perfect date- also did anyone else see Ben C. mouthing the words to "Like a G6"? Adorable. Love it. He is so fantastic.

    I love the idea of the bubble. The only thing that was wrong with that speech is how fast he said it. But sweet. He might be my new favorite. I can see how William could be kind of annoying.

    Wow is this how it's going to be? Every time someone gets a one on one date, he's my new favorite? It's going to be a long season.

    Ashley is not digging mask guy- Jeff- CLEARLY, the producers are making her keep him on. She is not the kind of girl who would find that move interesting, or mysterious. She's full on valley-girl "OMG gag me with a spoon". She just wants to move on.

    Honestly, how can they possibly roast someone they've known for like...three weeks? A month, tops. Most roasts have a lifetime to work with. Or are on DAVID HASSELHOFF. I mean, there is just endless, endless material there. And of course, since William is the dubbed "funny guy" he HAS to be the guy to eff up. Of course. They even have him laughing like a jackass. Why does he need an opportunity to be "real"? No thanks. Save the "realness" for like...your third year of marriage. Look at Bentley. He knows how the game is played.

    William is either just a complete jackass, or he has never seen a roast before. You don't talk about how you wish it was someone else at the roast, you talk about...small boobs. That's where you go. The other guys knew it.

    All I have to say, William is small beans. Bentley is magic. He knows what is up, and he is playing this so, so well. That little comment about 24/25 guys were excited it was you? Classic. Such a mind twister.

    WTF is up with these random shots of William wandering down a dirty street? Is he leaving, why doesn't he have any bags...why is there running involved...?

    Such manufactured drama. I LOVE IT.

    Also, poor Jeff. Talking about the three legged dog he adopted, he thinks it makes him so sensitive and cool, he has probably been saving up that story for a while and...no one cares. Ouch. Poor guy.

    Ashley has really, really horrible instincts. I mean all the words she is using, "sincere" and

    Ok if they were really, really smart, they would have him say all this stuff like "I don't like her" and "I don't find her attractive at all"...you know, all the stuff he's been saying, and then all of a sudden, totally fall head over heels in love with her.

    Now that would be great TV.

    He is playing this so well. This is like, "I'm heading off to war honey. Pine for me for years while I am gone." He is a hero in her eyes. She literally cannot stop throwing herself at him. Even though he's leaving, he wants her to keep thinking about him, and wish he was there. Damn he's good.

    He's planning on winning even though he's not even there. I literally cannot get over this, he is better than I thought. He's an evil, manipulative genius.

    And little did he know, the crying had only just begun. He's right, that really is annoying. I'm wondering if they manufactured that rain when he left, because that was really the perfect cue, like, "the world is crying because Ashley is sad".

    JP DATE:
    I love him. I love love love him. He doesn't care that she has her glasses and PJ's on. He's honest and sweet, looks a little bit like Joseph Gordon Levitt. I don't think I see them together, but that could be because I see us together. Might be biased.

    Also, what did Cher say? "If you wanna know if he loves you so it's in his kiss". Words for the wise. Ashley said it herself- "JP over Bentley in the kiss department". All you need to know.

    Still though, theme of this episode: Bentley is a genius. Totally brill.

    Flaw: Found.

    I SO CALLED IT!

    Dude is bad at math. This is him and his algebra tutor. Jump here to Best Week Ever, where they have the totally true title "We Finally Found a Flaw in Patrick Schwartzenegger" (and additional pictures)...because it has been a rough search, but who found said flaw first?

    Moi.

    BWE didn't catch the weird shorts in Dylan's Candy Bar twit pic, but that's probably harder to prove as an actual flaw.

    Theo can attest, I'm totally annoying when I find out that I was right. Like when jean shirts came back last summer. Called it. And I don't think I will ever let anyone forget it.

    Congratulations!

    Yay congratulations to Dakota Fanning! She just graduated from high school on Monday.

    "I think it was really important to have the high school experience," she said on the Today Show last fall. " I just think everyone always looks back on that time in their life. Who was homecoming princess and [did] the cheerleading ... and all the things that go along with high school? And I wanted to have that. I'm really lucky that I found a school that allows me to do both."

    Love her, congrats Dakota! I guess she probably won't be living off of the graduation party money for years, like the rest of us.

    Random Thoughts from this RHONJ.

    "Are you sure your head ain't full of helium"- Joe (husband). This is why Theo and I love him, for these fantastic one liners.

    Joke courtesy of my mom: "Is teresa wearing a turkey around her neck?" and guess what, that is exactly what it looked like, and to be honest, sorry, I prefer to have the veil over my eyes. I could never meet my turkey before I slaughtered it.
    I'd rather chop Teresa's head off. Which, she was really taking her life into her hands, because that is totally what she looked like.

    Good question sister person: who does walk around in a mink apron?? Oh Melissa, I think your fashion will provide so many good moments this season.

    Guess what Melissa? That "where's my food bitch?" crap, that's an American thing. My great grandfather loved to cook. He did more cooking than my great grandmother- that's a more Italian thing. Everybody cooks, because everybody loves to eat. It's just how it goes.

    What's "bisch-kotti" Kathy? I've been to Italy, it's still called "Biscotti", same as it is here. No need to European-ize it.

    Ok Joe's sexual talk is really starting to creep me out. His wee wee must be really REALLY small. He's way over compensating. Who wants to come over to your house on Thanksgiving and watch you try to have sex with your wife on a mechanical bull? Who?

    Why is Gia starting stuff with Vito and Lauren? What a little Teresa.

    Mom: "Why does he wear a hat all the time? Is he bald?" YES he is a little bit. When they showed that flashback to her house warming party, and yes, he was thinning just a teensy bit. Maybe just enough to bother him. And did anyone else notice him (Joe, brother) tell Joe (husband) that he would make out with him drunk during that little flashback?

    Kathy's fake tears are really starting to get to the eye rolling point. And she's still talking about that thing with Caroline? That was like two episodes ago.

    Teresa needs to stop being so insane. I don't know how else to say it. No one on this show is a brain surgeon, and even they all know it.

    YES. I am so excited, we're finally getting into the Melissa singing episodes. Always some of the most fun of any Housewives installment.

    Review, X Men: First Class.


    Normally I completely, totally trust Lainey Gossip's taste. I was already excited  to see "X Men: First Class" and when she tweeted mad love for it, I was SO on board. Made my mom go see it Sunday.

    I mean, I really wanted to see this movie, and BAD. So badly in fact, that I suffered through this: we went to the 4:00 showing, and in true form, showed up at 4:10, got tickets, and ran inside. Previews were still showing, but the theater was PACKED. I mean, there might of been two seats totally far apart from each other. Ok. Fine. We'll go to the 5:00. We switch out our tickets with a really cranky 60 something ticket person named Deborah. I get it, that job sucks. All the cool old people work at Panera, or the Library. Anyways, we go to Target, get a little distracted, and I walk into the 5:00 showing at 4:48. Totally respectable movie time show-up. IT WAS PACKED. No joke. Wanted to toss myself off a bridge, because at this point, I'm like, I hate the Regal theater, the only reason I am here is because we had free passes because they effed up the sound on "Bridesmaids" last time. I just might burn this theater down to the ground. That would certainly help their bug problem. Anyways, the movie.

    I liked it. Definitely was not too terribly disappointed. But it was just one of those movies where I had such high expectations, and it was just so...cheesy. I think it almost would have been better if I hadn't seen the first ones. 
    James McAvoy, who my mother kept complaining she really didn't like all the way in line, prompting me to get into a way too intense debate with her, possibly freaking out the people in line behind us, was the most fantastic part. He was amazing. A literal superhero, using his character's telepathy to save the movie in my mind. I love James McAvoy, like, too much.
    Then January Jones would come on and ruin it again. Why is she a person? Oh yes, she's pretty. Also mindless. Recalls back to the day when women were subservient Barbie dolls, aka Betty Draper. Once dated Ashton Kutcher. All steps on her ladder to success.

    I will just conclude with a quote about her from Zach Galifianakis: "'January, you are an actress in a show and everybody’s going to forget about you in a few years, so f---ing be nice,'"

    Random people in it: Michael, from Roswell. Also, if you're a Bones fan, Booth's brother. His real name is Brendan Fehr. So glad to see him working, because I really like him. He has about two lines, but works them so well. Also, that Lucas Till kid from the Miley Cyrus Hannah Montana movie (literally the only reason I watched that movie, I SWEAR) was one of the X-Men. He was adorable. Oh Theo will LOVE this- Nicholas Hoult from Skins (season 1) and of course, About A Boy. Also Kevin Bacon was his usual awesome-y goodness.

    I will say this, but want to stipulate that I have full hope for Lenny Kravitz in The Hunger Games still. Zoë Kravitz WAS AWFUL. Ugh, just truly terrible.
    Not sure how, but for some reason I just could not buy her as a stripper. Which was weird. Because she has that look a little bit. Also, nice super power. You have weak little butterfly wings and spit up fire. How...fierce. Not. 

    Speaking of The Hunger Games, it made me so excited to see Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss. At one point, in a totally non-creepy way I was like, "yes! Thighs!" Let me explain- she was walking by Rose Byrne, who plays Moira MacTaggert, who is of course so gorgeous, but also super skinny, and Jennifer Lawrence has thighs! Real ones! Not toned, super hard core Angelina Jolie in "Lara Croft", but just regular thighs. Love her for that. It made her total gold in my eyes. I am on board with her as Katniss, officially, from now on.

    All in all though it was a good summer movie. I would say go see. Lets say 2 1/2 yeahs! (out of four)

    We don't really have a rating system, but "yeahs" seems upbeat and fun. So we'll go with that.
