The Show Must Go On...
E! Reported that Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie had to both be at the same coffee shop to shoot the scenes for their upcoming show "Simple Life," but apparently the ex-friends did not speak to one another. [photo source]
This dress is nasty!
Paris is an idiot...
She compares herself to Oscar winner, Charlize Theron:

"My acting coach told me I have a similar style of acting to her so we may end
up vying for the same parts." For more of this ridiculous story

Check out the pocket of her jeans... This photo was taken as she left the Ivy restaurant in LA on Sunday. [photo source]

Stretching beyond Jeans

The Bachelor Update: Are Sara and Travis still together? (source) Apparently, the two did date for awhile after the show but thing didn't work out. It is even reported that "this whole process has made him realize that his former gf of 5 years is the woman for him." Also in the works... Dr. Travis Stork may be the new doctor for consultation on ABC shows (i.e. The View, etc.).

Ok who watched Oprah today?!?! I must say, it was amazing! She interviewed "The Real People Behind the Big Names"- Marc Jacobs, Jimmy Choo, Barbie, & Elmo. Before hand Marc had sent Oprah the newest Louis Vuitton- it is such a fantastic design that even her doorman complimented her on its craftmanship. The woman behind Jimmy Choo came on and showed a video of her 500 pair shoe collection. Oprah was also presented with the newest style of Jimmy's.

The one who inspired the creation of Barbie came on the show and surprised O with a Barbie look-alike. The Barbie doll wears Oprah's must-photographed red Vera Wang dress.
Finally, Oprah interviewed the 45-year old man that is the voice behind Sesame Street's Elmo.


WHAT?!?! Yesterday Nicole Richie met up with Benny Medina in Hollywood- apparently she is wanting to get into a singing career! (source)
Nooooo! I like Nicole just fine, but I DO NOT want to hear her sing!

Looks like Paris will play the role of Mother Teresa in an upcoming film! WHO IS COMING UP WITH DECISIONS LIKE THIS?!?! Paris says: "It's such an honor. I'm so excited. I really want to learn more about this amazing woman, so that's what I'm doing in a few months." (source) (look how accurately the hands were done!)

The Duff sisters attend the NASCAR 250 in California yesterday. (source)
Remember when the Simpson sisters used to be the faces of IceBreakers?!?
Fantasia and Jewel were also there.

Kimora Lee Simmons debuts her book! She appeared this morning on the Today show and here she is on the cover of her book- Fabulosity. (source)
Did y'all know that she's 6 ft. tall?!?

$$$$$- Reese Witherspoon is officially the highest paid actress of all time; surpassing Julia Roberts! It is reported that Reese will earn $29M for her upcoming horror film Our Family Trouble.
I guess winning the Oscar will seal the deal, making it official. (source)

Jessica and CaCee go shopping in LA over the weekend. (source)
I'm glad to see that the CaCee and Jess' relationship is still strong despite the CaCee and Nick rumors.

The Bachelor Finale! Travis' family comes to visit him in Paris. They will meet the girls to help Travis decide which one is his "soul mate!" First date-- Travis, his sister, brother-in-law and 2 nieces party at an in-door play center. Is it really ethical to get his 2 young nieces involved? One of which suggested that he plays "Eenie-meenie-minie-mo" to pick the right girl! Now to meet the parents! I'm not sure how Travis' parent accepted Sarah- I hope their distant expressions were a play with editing. At dinner Travis made his mom and sister cry. Moana meets the kids and Mike and Andrea at a zoo. While his sister and Moana have a heart-to-heart on the bench and they book tear up! The child has now decided not to play picking games now that she has met Moana. After meeting the second girl she drew a picture of both of the women and circled the one she liked more... MOANA!!! At dinner with the parents she is at a loss for words when asked about the connection she has with Travis. She at first said it wasn't in her character to reveal that type of information. And when she finally does voice her feelings she gets Andrea to tear up a bit more! One-on-one with the parents... Moana has been 'rocked to the core' by Travis! Overall, it seems like the family prefers Sarah! (woohoo!) But I think Travis is definitely smitten over Moana. Looks like trouble in paradise! The women's moms arrive! They are going to go shopping for dresses to wear to the final rose ceremony and to try on engagement rings! Moana's mom is so beautiful and young-looking. One last date... Sarah and Travis play tennis. Last date with Moana- she cooks for him. (cooking= an intimate past time she enjoys doing alone.)
YEAHHHH!!!! Moana is gone!

Dancing With the Stars Finale! Jerry Rice and his partner get a 27 out of 30. Stacey gets a perfect score despite her injured ankle! Drew jumps over his partner Cheryl while Jiving to Elvis, earning them a standing ovation but (only) a score of 27/30. The judges did not do them justice! ahh! The couple in third place-- Stacey & Tony had the overall worst scores, and therefore eliminated!!!!!! WHAT?!?!?!

The winner is.. DREW & CHERYL!!!!

Grey's Anatomy: Akwardness the morning after in Grey's house! Red hair Dr. Shepard has poison oak in a place no one would ever, ever want it! Gross! All I have to say is, 'poor George.'

Recent Health information that I came across while reading SELF magazine:

  • The latest Hollywood workout craze is a vibrating platform that shakes 25-30 times per second. J.Lo's trainer, Gunnar Peterson says while on the Vibraflex machine "your body has to counter the unstable surface." (machine pictured below)

  • As for all those who habitually crack their knuckles, backs, necks, etc. read this recent finding! Popping your joints keeps them moving. "People who crack their back, neck, hips or knees every few days have 56% fewer arthritic joints than those who don't." This research comes from the John Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore. Intentially cracking your joints eases pressure and prevents buildup of bony deposits.

Remember how just the other day I mentioned how popular the skull scarfs are? Well here is our little socialite, Nicole Richie, wearing the scarf in orange!

US Weekly captures Nicole in a moment behaving just like us- spraying her toes after a pedi in Beverly Hills Feb. 12th before meeting up with friends at La Conversation's outdoor cafe.
US Weekly also has pictures of Evangeline Lilly showing off her toned self Feb. 18th on a beach in Honolulu. All that working out that we see her doing must be paying off!

Speaking of which, here she is doing some cardio at a dance studio in Hawaii- Feb. 23rd.

Nicky Hilton is in Vegas for the premiere of her new clothing line- no, not Chick by Nicky Hilton- this on is called Nicky Hilton Beverly HIlls! She says: these are "clothes my friends and I could wear." Her boyfriend Kevin was there to support her- showering her with flowers and kises after the show.
(source) I had no idea this is what her bf looked like! Pleezze, who is this guy!?!

Sheryl's had a rough year so far...
People reports that this past Wednesday, Sheryl Crow underwent breast cancer surgery; a procedure she called "minimally invasive." According to the singer's website, the doctors her say her prognosis is "excellent." She will, however, undergo radiation therapy treatment as a precaution. Lance Armstrong, ex-boyfriend and fiance for the past 2 1/2 years, released a statement to People today saying:

"I was devastated to hear this news. Once again I'm reminded of just how
pervasive this illness is as it has now touched someone I love deeply. The
cycling champion continued, "Based on my contact in recent days with Sheryl, her
doctor, and her family, I am confident that she will have a full and complete
recovery and the world will be a better place for it. And to all of her fans and
friends out there, please keep Sheryl in your thoughts and prayers yet know that
I have never known a stronger woman in my life."

Nick is seen at the popular Mr Chows with a new blonde. They were also spotted at The Four Seasons. Check out these pictures as he helps her out of the car... (source)
why was she sitting in the back of a small looking sports car?

The first "Stump Lola" challenge was about Natalie Imbruglia. The native Australian known mainly for her debut album 'Left of the Middle' (1997) that featured the single 'Torn.' And yes, it is true that in 1985, at the age of 17, Natalie began her 2 year career playing Beth Brennan in the Aussie soap opera "Neighbours." [source]

I am so excited to see what happens with 'Dancing with the Stars' tonight and with the results on Sunday! But did you hear?- Stacey has hurt her ankle? I hope she's ok for tonight! (She was on 'Ellen' earlier today talking abou the show!) I'm still not sure if I am rooting for her or for Drew.. we'll have to see how they do! (source) I loved this gold outfit last week, the skirt was awesome!

I just watched the show!!! So I want to do one last, quick update!
Jerry Rice and his partner’s first dance: I liked the green and black poka-dotted dress with the green shoes! They got the highest score they have ever received! Jerry and partner definitely celebrated while sporting afros! The swing thing he did with her between his legs was actually pretty cool!
Stacey and Tony did the Jive again and got 30 out of 30! I have to agree with the judges comments… They did not live up to my expectations. It was a cute dance but I think they could have done better.
Drew and Cheryl brought back the Thriller! I loved it! His sequenced shoes are so cute! Wow! The judge said that his partner is the best girl they’ve seen! And another PERFECT SCORE! Oh my gosh! I loved their final performance! And I actually voted! I have never voted for any reality show but I really think they did a fab job!

Jessica is getting paid a reported $1 million for her new film 'Employee of the Month.' She is currently filming in Santa Fe. According to In Touch, the $1M is eaqual to $1,240-per-word that she utters in the comedy! (source)

Remember way back in 1998, Katie Holmes was accepted to Columbia University? For the past 8 years she has been deferring the acceptance while she was busy with 'Dawson's Creek,' etc. However, at the time of acceptance her dad paid the $500 "non-refundable" deposit. Now that his daughter has decided not to go the college route he is asking for that money back!!! (source) The couple back in June...
Come on, Mr. Holmes, don't be rediculous!

Apparently Britney is really enjoying her time in Hawaii before heading off to Mardi Gras in New Orleans next week- so much so that she plans on staying at the Maui mansion for an extra 3 months with Sean Preston while she works on her upcoming album! The rent for this posh pad is $42,000 a month. Click here to see some great pics of her island get away! Plus she's ringless in these pictures... umm- KFed hangs out with a chick in LA, Brit is planning on staying away for 3 months, and now no ring to be found?!?!? These are not good signs!

Is one of the 'American Idol' contestants already an idol of sorts? Miss Becky O'Donohue and her twin sister Jesse have appearted on 'Fear Factor's' "twins only" special epsidoe in 2004. The two have also been photographed for Maxim magazine's "Fallacy baseball in 2004" issue. The 24 year old New Yorker began singing at age 4.

Is Halle High-Maintenance? [photo source]

Photos of Halle in the new Versace ads have just been released, and so has inside information about her attitude! Aparently, this past Thursday when Halle was to be picked up in a white limo to take her to the lunch an eyewitness tells The Boston Herald "her publicist said Halle doesn't drive in white limos, only black." Tired of waiting for the black limo to arrive, Halle sucked it up and headed to the luncheon in the white limo. (source)

Ashley wears the same skull scarf that Nicole Richie did just a few days ago when she dined at Mr. Chow's with none other than DJ A.M!!! Nicole's does have a red anchor though. (source) A similar skull scarf has also been seen in brown on Carmen Electra and Lindsay Lohan! But apparently Sienna Miller had it first!

KFed handling another blond while wife, Britney Spears and baby Sean vacation in Hawaii. (source)
It is reported that the women is Sandy Laktar ("or something to that effect"). She is a french actress spending her holiday in LA. I am not sure what is going on between these two but I wouldn't put it past him to cheat on lil' miss Brit.

Slim Shady... Eminem is going to pay $17,000 a month to get whipped in shape with Janet Jackson's personal trainer. (source)

The Bachelor: Tonight is the "Women Tell All" episode! But before we hear about what the girls have to say... I must admit that ever since I started watching The Bachelor & The Bachelorette in 2002, I have thought that A) Chris Harrison (the host) is so cute, and B) that he has the best job ever! I recently read an article about him living in Paris for two months while filming this season's show. [source]

In this photo: Harrison is with his son Joshua, 4, and daughter Taylor, 2, and his wife of 12 years, Gwen. No surprise that this attractive family man was raised in Dallas (!), and married his college sweetheart when he was 22. How romantic!
Tonight's show was good.. too bad Ali G. didn't show up to tell us again how badly she wants to reproduce! It probably would have cost her "big bucks" to come to this taping! Dumb girl! That Jenny girl rudely attacked Susan and the other girls.. ahh!

[source] Apparently, Kylie Minogue and her boyfriend of 3 years, actor Olivier Martinez, are set to wed. Her sister has also announced that Kylie has overcome breast cancer.
