Reese Witherspoon chats on her cell while shopping in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, her husband was filming on location in Texas. Ryan Phillipe rode along with super hottie Channing Tatum in a parade scene. I hope Ryan's career picks up with all these military movies he's been filming. I'd like to see him succeed.
J.Lo and Marc Anthony may actually be expecting their first little gremlin together.
Jesse McCartney had a radio interview yesterday morning where he was talking about his girlfriend, Katie Cassidy, daughter of former teen star David Cassidy. Katie Cassidy recently landed the role of Lucy Ewing in the upcoming Dallas movie. J.Lo was originally slated to star in the film, but is no longer attached to the project. The interviewer asked, "Oh, so I bet your girlfriend can give us the scoop on why Jennifer Lopez was fired from the movie," to which McCartney responded, "She didn't get fired. She's pregnant."
Watch out for those legal sharks, their circling!
Cindy Crawford has shockingly revealed that she has been using a cosmetic surgeon for the past 11 years. In this week's Gala magazine interview out today, the 40-year-old mother-two spoke of making regular trips for treatments ranging from Botox, to vitamin and collagen injections. She went on to reveal that she has been getting such extra help with her looks since the age of 29.
"I'm not going to lie to myself: past a certain age, creams work on the texture of your skin but, in order to restore elasticity, all I can really count on is vitamin injections, Botox and collagen. I have a very simple, healthy life, which works miracles. I drink a lot of water, watch what I eat and exercise. But I owe the quality of my skin to my cosmetic surgeon."
At a SexyBack Club Tour stop last night in Philadelphia there was nothing but trouble. JT was an hour and 15 minutes late to stage. The crowd finally started booing after waiting an hour. During "Cry Me a River," he repeatedly gave the audience the finger, humped the ground and imitated fellatio. He also changed a few words in the song so that he could curse more frequently.
The classiest act of all was this quote, "Hey guys! Thanks for coming. My album comes out next month and I hope you like it. If not ... fuck you."
Ugh, is somebody having a meltdown?
At a press conference for Bobby, William H. Macy spoke out about Lindsay Lohan, his co-star (and his wife, Felicity Huffman's, co-star in Georgia Rule).
"I think what an actor has to realize (is that) when you show up an hour late, 150 people have been scrambling to cover for you. There is not an apology big enough in the world to have to make 150 people scramble. It's nothing but disrespect. And Lindsay Lohan is not the only one. A lot of actors show up late as if they're God's gift to the film. It's inexcusable, and they should have their asses kicked." When asked about Lohan's work on Bobby, Macy paused and said, "She was pretty late." He added, "I worry about these young kids – 15, 18, 20 years old – who in the span of one year become millionaires and powerhouses. It's too much power for a kid that age to handle."

Victoria Beckham's manager Simon Fuller is creating a show for her. He says, "It will be more serious than a reality show but will still be entertaining because Victoria is so funny."
Funny, like weird, right? The only Posh show I'd be interested in is a reality show. It would be cool to see how she spends her days, although I imagine it goes shop, don't eat, get extensions, get photographed at restaurant with glass of water, remove extensions, etc. As long as Becks is in it, I'm in.
This photo is their promo shoot for the couple's new unisex frangrances. It's the new CK1.
NicRic, 24, has been spotted spending a lot of time with Brody Jenner, 23. Brody split with Laguna Beach star Kristin Cavallari, 19, two weeks ago.
Nicole and Brody spent the entire weekend together in Malibu. Brody attended the Teen Choice awards by himself, but met up with Nicole at Hyde after the show, where they allegedly held hands and cuddled. KCav was also at the club that night.
Who'd be scarier to cross, NicRic (all 81 lbs. of her) or KCav?
Kate Hudson posed for Flare magazine, a Canadian fashion mag. She was missing from the London premiere of You, Me & Dupree. Owen Wilson told reporters that he wasn't sure where she was, probably at home.
Other reports have surfaced that at Kate's brother's wedding earlier this summer, Chris Robinson was present but was noticably left out of family portraits.

Maggie Gyllenhaal considered giving up acting after repeatedly being told she wasn’t pretty or sexy enough to land roles. The 28-year-old star took acting classes at Columbia and began auditioning for roles fulltime after graduating in 1999. But she became disheartened after being rejected for part after part.
She explains, "There was a long time of not getting anything, or even coming close, and lots of feedback like, 'You're not beautiful or sexy enough.'"
Gyllenhaal claims she tried to remain strong in spite of the criticism, but says the hurtful comments took their toll. "I was tough on the outside - 'You must have a boring idea of what beautiful and sexy is' - but on the inside, that's a hard thing to hear."
I think what would be harder is having a brother that is prettier than you, who even straight guys fall in love with, no?
For those of you who don't understand why I call Penelope Cruz "Mothface," please know that I fear moths more than almost any other animal (it's inexplicable...I must have had a traumatic moth attack as a wee lass) and there is something that is really frightening about her. Additionally, feast your eyes on this beauty. If that isn't the face of a moth, I never want to know what is.

Crybaby extraordinaire Tyler from The Real World: Key West is throwing a fit overthe reunion show that recently aired. He called the NY Metro to bitch further. Here's the scoop:
OK, give me the set-up, about the reunion.
It's been seven months. Right beforehand, we get all liquored up. It's all friendly. Then when we get onstage, they play this montage with every bad thing I've ever said. Everyone is seething. It's like they're playing the "Lord of the Rings" trailer - with me in the role of Sauron.
Let me guess: Then everyone said how much they love you.
Svetlana deserves an Oscar. She starts out by saying, "I just wanted you to know how verbally abusive you've been." Has she been doing crack with Whitney lately? Then we cut to a commercial break, and Svetlana, dry-eyed, snaps, "Can I get a Diet Coke, please?" They came after me with pitchforks and torches! And I'm thinking: Where is this pent-up angst coming from? Is this a Nirvana video?
Were you the sole target of the producer's ire?
Paula, as you may know from the tabloids, was arrested when she bit her boyfriend. When she was asked about him, she said, "We're growing together." And I said, "Do domestic abuse charges count as growing? Can we talk about ending the cycle of abuse?" No one in the cast stood by me. But backstage, a few said to me, "Oh my God, I'm so glad you said that." Where were they onstage?
Were there sneaky tricks in the editing room?
Svetlana, for example, said gay people are child molesters - and they just showed my reaction. That's like me saying, "Women are bitches! You should stay in the kitchen," then just showing the footage of you reacting. I can't defend myself against misleading evidence. And I said I was sorry for these things six months ago. It's not like I performed an abortion on you! Get over it! Good luck with getting arrested! Good luck with that cocaine habit! I'm not naming names - the media will catch up soon enough.
"I have been working out five days a week for two hours a day," the 5-foot-3 singer told Us magazine the morning after the Teen Choice Awards. And in the past two weeks alone, she lost 8 pounds. "There are no tricks," says the size-2 star. "There is no easy way."
Too bad her costumes during the show were so unflattering the weight loss didn't even matter!
Keane singer Tom Chaplin has checked into rehab to be treated for both alchohol and drug addiction. This means their U.S. tour will be postponed. Tom, 27, said he was "having to deal with an increasing problem with drink and drugs and the time has come to get the professional help I need to sort myself out." Keane has already canceled several performances, citing Tom's "exhaustion."
Paramount severing ties with Tom Cruise's production company after blaming his year of couch-jumping antics for hurting Mission: Impossible III at the box office. Viacom CEO Sumner Redstone telling the Wall Street Journal that Cruise's "recent conduct has not been acceptable to Paramount."
India deeming Paris Hilton's video for "Stars Are Blind" too hot for broadcast after claiming it had sexual connotations. No freakin' way. Tokyo's subway system refusing permission for an Harper's Bazaar advertising poster featuring a nude and heavily preggo Britney Spears, branding it as "too stimulating." God bless America, where Paris can gyrate on screen and Brit Brit can be naked and preggo in our mags.
The latest edition of Survivor dividing its castaways into four teams segregated by race, pitting blacks, whites, Asians and Latinos against one another. This amazingly racist and horrible idea premieres Sept. 14.
Willie Nelson joining the effort to ban the slaughter of horses in the U.S. for the consumption of their meat in other countries. Um, yeah, that's sick!
