Huzzah for Hollywood.

Oh man what a break indeed. And I needed it. I had four meetings, two phone calls and endless amounts of report doing and campaign organizing yesterday. What a way to end September, haha. But thank goodness for lunch breaks and new books (The Secret Life of Bees if you're curious). But just because I didn't post about Hollywood doesn't mean there isn't a ton to talk about, so sit back and get ready for the crazy:
  • So it's clearly not a Hollywood post of mine if there isn't a cute bebe or two to start it off. And today's cutie pie comes courtesy of Naomi Watts once again and her precious little tot, Alexander....freakin adorable:



  • Another adorable tot is little Kingston, seriously this kid is adorable. And I bet he's a superb older brother already, he can give Alexander some pointers:



  • From cute bebes we get a little more serious and take the time to remember a legend that passed away over the weekend, Paul Newman. Now I'm going to be honest and say I haven't really seen any of his movies (er not that I can remember) but the man is a Hollywood icon and will definitely be missed. At least we'll always see his face on those tasty salad dressings :)



  • In other sad, but uplifting news, both DJ AM and Travis Barker have been released from the hospital and are currently on the road to further recovery pending from the fatal plane crash they were involved in two weeks ago. DJ AM was even well enough to attend a memorial service for one of the victims yesterday. My thoughts and prayers are with all the families involved.

  • And for some more celeb round ups we have:

  • Oh man and my TV, oh my TV.
    Desperate Housewives. *spoiler alert*As I've mentioned before this was one of my favorite finales of all last season, so I was more than excited for it's return. And I'm not going to lie, when Mike came on the screen at the end of the episode I squealed with delight and yelled "He's Alive!!!!". Yeah Matt had no idea what I was talking about. But man I would have been pissed if they really killed him, he's my fave on the show. Anyhoo, I loved the premiere. I thought it was great to see everyone's new lives and all the weird changes and all the drama that's about to happen (per usual). All in all, looks like the potential for a great season.

    The Hills
    . Why do I watch? Why? Everytime I watch I just want to throw something at Spencer. Seriously could he be a bigger dbag to Heidi's mom? And could Heidi be any dumber for actually being on his side? I mean really, it's just ridiculous. And then we have the whole Stephanie/Doug thing, I mean what really happened here? Do we even know? I agree with Trent and think they're both just shady folks who clearly don't know what really happened between them and feel the need to talk about it 24/7. And Whitney, I heart you. I really can't wait for your own show that hopefully won't have some lame HS drama on it...just grown up type drama okay? Oh and unrelated to last night's episode apparently there is more drama going on between Lauren and Audrina according to their respective Myspace accounts. Just kiss and make up ladies, you're both cool and love the drama, just drop the lame boys and mean Lo and you'll be good, okay? Great. Thanks. See you next week.

    Heroes. Is it just me or is the show still confusing? People are dead, they're alive, they're clone babies, they are hiding in other people's bodies, they kill people, they save people, they paint in Africa, they time travel!!?!? Gah. It's almost too much. But of course I'll still be watching next week. I need to know what happens okay?

    How I Met Your Mother. I love this show. You should too. And then we can talk about it. And it will be legen......wait for it.........dary. :)

  • And to top of this post of awesome random Hollywood happenings I bring you this week's WTF. A woman in Middleton, Ohio (hopefully that's nowhere near where I'm headin this weekend, haha) was arrested for driving like a crazy person and chasing down children. But that's not all....she was wearing a cow suit. Seriously woman, seriously? I want to know what she was smoking that day, haha.

And that's what I got today folks. Whew.



happy wednesday!

I totally agree about Desperate Housewives. When Mike came on the screen I definitely breathed a sigh of relief. That painter dude just wasn't doing it for me at all!

That cow lady cracked me up!

Angela said...

Ew. Is it bad I'm surprised Samantha Ronson wore a bikini?

Emily said...

you always round out the best gossip. boo for ryan reynolds being unavailable.

dmb5_libra said...

no congrats to scarlett johansson...she stole my man ryan reynolds. i loved him.

Katie Killary said...

yes! at the end Mike came back! I just watched it online last night... went to great lengths to find an episode player since abc.com wasn't working for me. Desperate Housewives is that important!

Laurie said...

I thought DH was pretty good - curious to see who Edie's crazy husband is after though! I was so shocked when Danielle came in and snatched up her baby. So sad.

Alexa said...

kingston? beyond adorable!

if it is possible for a woman to still look like a man in a bikini saMAN wins that contest hands down

the way spencer talks to heidi's family he needs to be shot. im not kidding. shot.

HIMYM - obvy.

Lauren said...

Heroes is VERY confusing.

Maxie said...

You know, Samantha Ronson actually looked decent in that bikini. I was surprised.

rs27 said...

I'm pretty sure Paul NEwman is Paul Rudd's dad.

La Petite Chic said...

Apparently I care about Samantha Ronson wearing a bikini too because I totally clicked over to check out the pics!

Paula said...

That reminds me how my ex saw Gwen Stefani, Kingston and Gavin Rossdale in a shop in Glasgow one day last year - he was thinking what a nice family they looked like, how cute the kid was, and how much the girl looked like Gwen as he bought his paper, then got home and read in the paper she was in Glasgow in concert, had brought her family and was staying in a hotel nearby. I wasn't happy at all that i'd missed the celeb sighting!

Hillary said...

I love LOVE How I Met Your Mother. This week's episode was fab.

The Hills was crazy this week. Every week I am astounded by Spencer's level of horribleness - and then he tops it the following week. I cannot believe that Heidi put up with how flat-out RUDE he was to her mother. BLOWS MY MIND!

Jenn said...

I was very surprised when I saw Samantha Ronson in a pink bikini. I pictured her more as a board shorts & dark bikini top kind of gal.

Dana said...

OMG... Little Kingston is such a cutie.. and what a head of hair!!! Love the curls..

sarah marie p said...

I've never seen any Paul Newman movies - but I'm thinking that I should in his memory. Man, what a hottie! That's so sad he died ... he seemed like the nicest guy.

Grits said...

So sad to hear that Paul Newman died. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is one of my all time favorite movies.
Oh, and Travis Barker and DJ AM were in the burn hospital in my town! We were all sad to see them go, but glad they are getting better. Crazily enough, I was also in Columbia SC the same night they had their wreck. Strange world...
Glad everything is going great in your world!

molly said...

i love mike!!
and those babies are adorable! kingston looks like hes going to be a really cool guy

Auburn Kat said...

If I was Heidi's mom I would have smacked Spencer!!! Seriously, what is Heidi thinking?

I was SO happy that Mike was back too!!!

chasinglibby said...

they got hitched?!?! no way! also, i'm soooo confused with heroes. and it's funny because i know that even if i were to rewatch it all...i still wouldn't get it! haha. but i,too, will be watching next week.

aaaand that's crazy you went to school w/casey grammer...frasier's real life daughter!! lol...what was it like?? did you ever talk to her?

brandy said...

Oh The Hills. After watching that episode I was instantly writing off emails to people declaring that Spencers douchbaggery had reached new heights. I mean, it's one thing to talk trash about Lauren, but to talk so condescendingly to Heidi's mom over lunch? Sweet goodness, all he was missing was the scary evil man mustache to complete his villain persona.

Daddy Dan said...

Never seen a Paul Newman movie?!?

I recommend Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Bayjb said...

It definitely was a big week. There is something about Naomi's son that just looks...weird. She's way pregnant again too. And sadly Kingston looks like dad, fingers crossed for Zuma.

Melanie said...

HIMYM is my favorite sitcom on tv right now. It's AWESOME.
