Does Anyone Really Read THIS?

I'm considering eliminating some sections of this blog. This one takes some time to maintain and I receive the least feedback from this section. I'm debating on keeping this as a regular weekly post, or canceling it all together.

Celebrity News Week Recap of December 10th 2004

Let me see last week we left off (fine I left off) with headlines
of police breaking into Michael Jackson's home with a search warrant. Exactly what they were looking for was not disclosed, but on going investigation seems to worsen for Jackson.

Damaging Evidence surfaces in Michael Jackson's Child Molestation Case

A potentially damaging piece of evidence has been unearthed in the child-molestation case against Michael Jackson, according to a report in Saturday's Santa Barbara News-Press.

The newspaper reports that fingerprints belonging to both Jackson and his accuser were found on pornographic magazines that authorities seized from Jackson's Neverland Ranch last year. | source: MTV.com

Jackson reportedly gives DNA sample
Michael Jackson , who left his Neverland estate on Friday soon after investigators arrived to search it, returned by helicopter the following day and provided authorities a DNA sample at their request, the Santa Barbara News-Press reported Sunday. ...

Jackson was home when authorities arrived Friday but left soon afterward because the presence of law enforcement officials and prosecutors was upsetting his children, sources close to the entertainer told the News-Press. He returned Saturday specifically to give the sample. | source: MSNBC

Drunk Danes unnerve J.Lo
Drunks from anywhere can unnerve me. However, as a performer I would assume performing for a drunken crowd goes with the job. Of course they can be rude and obnoxious but if you have a commitment you have to honor it. Apparently Jennifer Lopez continues on her diva streak and was so annoyed by alcohol happy Danes that as soon as her performance was over she left as fast as she could. I can relate to the feeling, but then again that's not part of my job...
J.Lo lost her cool in Sweden.
The singer was in Stockholm earlier this week where she was performing some songs from her forthcoming CD for about 100 VIPs, a source tells The Scoop.

"They asked the Danes several times to be quiet but they didn't listen. J. Lo was expected to stay at least an hour after they played the songs, but she ran out of the place as soon as she was done." | source: MSNBC

I will not be leaving my seat when I watch Alicia Keys guest spot on Regis and Kelly. Not just a guest but a guest host,which is even better.
Alicia Keys To Fill In For Kelly Ripa
Keys will sit in as a guest host with Regis Philbin for the vacationing Kelly Ripa on "Live With Regis and Kelly" on December 22. In addition to preparing to play sidekick to Regis, Keys is still basking in her eight Grammy nominations. The nods mark the singer's second trip to the big show as a nominee. She won five Grammys in 2002 for her debut album, Songs in A Minor.

This time around, it's more exciting because this year has been so exciting in terms of my growth as a woman and as an artist," Keys said. "I'm really getting to enjoy it. The first time it was all a whirlwind, and I was caught up in the shock."
| source: MTV.com

Keys picked up SEVEN of those eight nominations at this Years Billboards Awards. Usher nabbed ALL eleven awards. Kanye West Picked up four, including Best New Artist. See the complete winner list at Ivillage

That was great news for Kanye West, but honestly after hearing his disappointing child like tantrum, I personally I wish West didn't win ANY awards this year, even if he is from Chicago.
"I feel I was definitely robbed, I was the best new artist this year," West said about losing the Best New Artist trophy to Gretchen Wilson. "I don't know if I'll be back at this award show next year." | source: React Magazine

Since then I suppose his publicist's have worked with him to be a more gracious public speaker. "I should have accepted that more gracefully. "I'm really ashamed of the way I reacted to that situation."

Could it be that Hollywood's most famous couple is headed for serious trouble? It has been rumored that the relationship between Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston has been headed for the rocks for months. Brad Pitt has been wanting to start a family with wife Jennifer Aniston since before her commitment to the show F.R.I.E.N.D.S. ended. During a recent interview with Diane Sawyer the rift couldn't be more evident when at the same time, Jen's actions contradict Brad's wants.

Brad & Jen He Tears Up, She Parties Hard
Call it A Tale of Two Cities... or Spouses: On the evening of Dec. 2, film fans were treated to a rare sight: manly movie star Brad Pitt, 40, with eyes welling up on national television as he admitted to Primetime Live's Diane Sawyer just how much he has "family on the mind." Just as his interview was airing, however, Brad's wife, Jennifer Aniston, was acting out an entirely different story.
If Jen knew about Brad's teary eyes, witnesses say she certainly didn't show it, dancing and partying the night away with co-stars from her upcoming film Derailed, which is just finishing up filming in London. But to industry observers, the scene -- along with ongoing rumors of a rift in the Pitt-Aniston marriage, including, as Star reported, a chilly goodbye at the Los Angeles airport Nov. 26. | source: Ivillage.com

Another couple that has gone to the dumps is that of Ellen DeGeneres and life partner of four years Alexandra Hedison
Ellen DeGeneres and Her Partner Separate
Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has separated from her girlfriend, photographer-director Alexandra Hedison.

A source close to the couple tells PEOPLE that Hedison moved out of DeGeneres's home last month, ending their four year relationship. "It's difficult for both of them and very sad," says the source. "They were a private couple and they hope they can separate privately." | source: People Magazine

Celebrity News Week Recap of December 3rd 2004

This week has been an eventful gabfest of celebrity gossip! There was been a lot of good news, bad news, and just plain juicy fun tab-fab gab. Alright enough of the teasing lets start off with the good news:

Congratulations! Julia Roberts Is the Proud Mom of Twins
Julia Roberts and hubby Danny Moder finally welcomed their new additions to their loving family at 3 a.m. on November 28. What are the names? Not as odd as the recent trend of celebrity baby names. (Coco Cox, Apple Martin ... the list is now getting pretty big) Julia gave birth to beautiful baby girl - Hazel Patricia and baby boy - Phinnaeus Walter.
But Phinnaeus and Hazel?
Hazel is retro by at least a couple of generations. The world stopped having Hazels around the time it stopped having Berthas and Gladyses and Mildreds. The last time Hazel was heard from was 1961, when Shirley Booth played a busybody maid of that name in a sitcom of that name. Phinnaeus is even more retro, as in Old Testament retro, and more obscure than such OT running mates as Methuselah and Obadiah.

Another mommy to be, um well we don't know that for sure. Britney Spears has been widely rumored to be pregnant. In recent posting on her own website it is blatantly obvious that at least she plans to be.

Is Britney Spears in the family way?
Spears recently announced that she was taking at least a few years off before touring again. "A lot of people think you should wait till you are older to have kids," Spears writes. "I've had a career since I was 16, have traveled around the world & back and even kissed Madonna! The only thing I haven&'t done so far is experience the closest thing to God and that's having a baby. I can' wait!"

The 'Toxic' singer opines that it's important to have children when you're young — like her own mother, who "looked sexy in her black dress [when she went to church and] would come home and put on her size 2 shorts and a bikini top to wash the car & get a tan at the same time."

Spears also has comments that are not likely to endear her to career moms. “To be a really good mom, I feel your child needs to be your fulltime job,” she writes. "I want to raise my kids and share all of those precious moments with them and not rely on nannies." | source: MSNBC

I would love to see when this happens. This coming from a person who has a team of personal assistants to help her with... HERSELF. Said team includes a Manager (fine this is also her mother), Make-up artist, Wardrobe Stylist, publicists, Agent, Choreographer, Production Offices, personal workout coach, dietitian, hair stylist, I could go on. Read more and find out their wages HERE

Here is some great news for all the Motley Crue fans...

Motley Crue will stage reunion tour in 2005
Bad boys of metal Mötley Crüe will be shouting at the devil at a stadium near you some time in 2005, says the band's manager, but it's still in the works. ''We're holding buildings, sitting down and negotiating with everyone, but nothing is done,'' Mötley Crüe manager Allen Kovac reports to Billboard...

Kovac also reports that the band will release Red, White & Crüe, a greatest-hits album, in February, featuring a new single ''If I Die Tomorrow.'' Meanwhile, original Crüe member Tommy Lee has taped a reality show for NBC. | source:
Entertainment Weekly

Now for some bad news. I hate to break this to all you George Clooney fans, but it seems like the ex-ER doc is having some medical problems of his own. During filming of a current film George Clooney has uncovered serious back ailments.

George Clooney sidelined by ruptured disk
George Clooney is suffering from a ruptured disk that kept him from promoting his new film, “Ocean’s Twelve,” this week. Clooney had been scheduled to travel to New York Sunday for appearances on shows including “Good Morning America,” “The Daily Show” and “Charlie Rose,” his spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, said Monday. But Clooney told Rosenfield on Saturday that his condition had worsened and he would be unable to travel. | source: MSNBC

Some bad news for Michael Jackson.

Police Search Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch — Again
Just over a year after Michael Jackson's home was first searched by police, Santa Barbara, California, authorities have returned to Neverland once again. Sheriff's investigators started searching the singer's Los Olivos estate at around 9 a.m. Friday December 3rd. Though they wouldn't specify what they were looking for, police say they are executing the search 'as part of an ongoing criminal investigation'. | source: MTV News

Who else is in legal problems, not a celebrity per say but a parent of one very high profile one...
Lindsay Lohan's Father Arrested For Criminal Contempt, DWI
Michael Lohan was arrested on Monday night for criminal contempt and driving while intoxicated when he allegedly violated an order of protection taken out by the actress' mother, Dina Lohan, according to the Nassau County Police Department.

Lohan was arrested at 9:50 p.m. in North Merrick, New York, after he was seen by hired security guards pulling into the driveway of Dina's home twice on Monday night. | source: MTV News

Lindsay's Debut CD "Rumors" is due to release this Tuesday December 7th. It's veer doubtful that her father's legal problems could be a publicity ploy. He has been a thorn on his daughters career, continuously making a spectacle of himself. Previously arrested for fighting with his brother-in-law, continuously ejected from scores strip clubs, passing out bars and providing negative feedback to the media. Talk about being embarrassed of your parents.

This seems to be deja-vu. I recall Nicole Kidman having some controversy over her smoking habits. This was in fact the case, Kidman made headline news in May 2003 when she smoked throughout a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival.


Kidman Slammed Over Smoking

Nicole Kidman's latest award as Nsw Australian Of The Year has caused controversy after anti-smoking groups renewed their call for the actress to quit her nicotine habit. Following her triumph, Australian health authorities have reacted with fury, claiming Kidman, as a smoker, is a bad role model for young Aussies. | source:

I am not a fan of smoking and I muss confess do like the ban of smoking in some establishments. However, this tactic of what it a blatant personal attack seems rather harsh. Hmm, I wonder if I would feel the same if it wasn't Nicole Kidman who they were going after?
