On the set of Confessions of a Shopaholic, Isla Fisher is very happy filming a scene with John Goodman in her tiger-striped pumps. But, boo sad! They made her put on icky galoshes when the cameras started rolling. That's enough to elict a realistic cry! Either that or the clown collar.
Gimme More! Isla Fisher
Lauren Conrad, rocking her own Chanel, and Lo had lunch on Robertson yesterday, forcing me to yell at my co-worker for not calling me when they saw all this happening a couple blocks away. She also introduced her new friend. See more photos at The Puparazzi.

Gimme More! Jenna Bush
Gimme More! Prince Harry
Jessica Alba grabs some lunch in West Hollywood yesterday. Her fiance Cash Warren was with her and her bump.Apparently she now blogs on Myspace and wrote about Sunday night. "Instead of hitting up the Governor's Ball or any other party, we opted for sweats and In-N-Out Burgers. Being preggers kind of takes the fun out of partying until the wee hours. Sleep always sounds so much better these days. Another highlight was the fact that I didn't mess up my lines or trip on my dress. I did have a stumble backstage... Cash caught me. Luckily all the photogs were taking pics of Cameron [Diaz] looking gorgeous in pink."

Courteney Cox is promoting her new season of Dirt, the racy FX show that has her playing the editor of a trashy tabloid.
On playing take-charge characters: “Monica was a ruthless, competitive girl, so I guess I have that streak in my personality. Gail Weathers was really campy. In Scream 3, I had the worst hairdo in the world. I can’t believe it’s forever on film.”
On why she took the role: “She’s ruthless, but with a heart. When I originally pitched this show to FX, it didn’t even have a woman character in it. It was really about a Hollywood young actor who was willing to sell his soul to the paparazzi to keep up in the world of Hollywood. FX came up with the idea of making it centered around a female tabloid editor.”
On the show’s sensational storylines: “We don’t ever intend to hurt anyone. And as a matter of fact, sometimes we make the characters sympathetic. It’s all in fun.”
On sympathizing with the paparazzi: “I would say that playing this character and working on this show has definitely shown me how hard (this business) is and how competitive it is. It’s just really hard to run a successful magazine. And I (understand) just how many paparazzi there are out there and how hard it is to get the exclusive picture. I guess I’ve learned (how the paparazzi operates), but that doesn’t mean I agree with it all and I definitely don’t agree with the obsession on certain celebrities. I understand the fascination, but when it gets obsessive, I think it gets dangerous.”
On truth being stranger than fiction: “We come up with these storylines and sometimes we think, ‘Wow, there’s no way this could happen, but man it would make for a good episode.’ And then you find out after you filmed it...that something even more outrageous has happened.”
On Lucy and Don’s relationship this season: “Don (Lucy’s best friend celebrity photographer) is on medication now so his schizophrenia has been toned way back and he’s much more in control, which makes him have to look at what he does for a living and how far he goes for Lucy. So we’ve kind of reversed the roles a little bit. As opposed to her taking care of him, he’s taking care of her more.”
On how Lucy has changed after being stabbed last season: “She is ruthless, but she definitely has a different outlook on life. She doesn’t take it quite so seriously. I think she’s a little more appreciative of what she has. I think she’s a little more daring in a certain way, but for a better reason—more for fun as opposed to some personal vendetta against people.”
