Jude Law, 36, is expecting his 4th child with a former fling, Samantha Burke, 24, a model/aspiring actress from Florida whom he met while filming Sherlock Holmes. She is 7 months pregnant, due October 6th, with a girl she plans to name Sophia. Jude has 3 kids with his ex Sadie Frost and a history of lusty behavior.
Gimme More! Jude Law
Going back to blonde. I can't believe how frequently she changes the color of her hair. It must be so damaged! Anyway, Samantha Ronson seems to like it as the two continue to hang out, fight, get back together, and generally drive each other crazy.

Mischa Barton was released from the hospital over the weekend and flew out to New York yesterday to begin production on her new tv show. Following a couple weeks of psychiatric evaluation, Mischa was deemed fit to return to work and brought her pup Ziggy along.
Gimme More! Mischa Barton
Hey party people! I'm in New York and it's hot and soon to be thunderstorming! Sat by the Bachelorette Jillian and her man Ed on the flight out. Lots of talk about Regis and Kelly, After the Final Rose, and other parties/appearances they have this week. They were pretty lovey dovey and said they were happy to be out in public together finally. So far that's my only celeb sighting, but I'm working on it! Oh, and I started and finished L.A. Candy on the flight. Quick, easy read and looking forward to book 2 since this one more or less ends with a "to be continued..."
Gimme More! DON's Deal

OK, one more post! Drew Barrymore and Christina Applegate began work on their new collaboration, Going the Distance in Long Island. When Christina has her hair long like that it makes me think of her flashback sequences in Samantha Who? which makes me think of The Sweetest Thing. The film is about how Drew's character deals with a long distance boyfriend. And I'm guessing it'll be a riot.
Olivia Palermo takes a pause from shopping in SoHo to grab a drink and text away. This is a good last post before I take off for NY in the a.m. as I hope the weather looks as nice as in this photo. Wish me some great celeb sightings at the party and I'll tweet/post as much as possible!
Gimme More! Olivia Palermo
Get excited, teenage girls! Joe Jonas is back on the market. Camilla Belle's rep issued the following statement, "Joe and Camilla have broken up. There is no third party involved and they care deeply about each other and will remain friends."
And for his current tour, Joe just changed the words in "Much Better," the song he sang about his break-up with Taylor Swift, from "Get a rep for breakin' hearts, now I'm done with super stars" to "now I'm done with movie stars." Who's up next?
Katherine Heigl celebrated her box office success over the weekend by going shopping with her buddy TR Knight and his boyfriend Mark Cornelsen. Her film The Ugly Truth came in second at the box office and I thought it was hilarious!
TO: MIDDLE-AGED REALITY SHOW STARS (LIKE MY DAUGHTER)
FROM: CANDY SPELLING
"I know many middle-aged people have issues about their parents and their upbringing. I did. My memories didn’t match all those of my mother, and, funny thing, it’s the same way with my daughter. Life has consequences. What you say is on the record. Other people have feelings.
have a vested interest in this subject. My daughter, Tori’s, two-part season finale revolves around my granddaughter’s first birthday party and how she has made what seems like an agonizing decision to invite me. Cue music. Cue sideways glances. Cue Lights.
I did get an invitation just in time for the RSVP deadline. I’m sure its delivery will be on next week’s episode with some comment about my house or driveway or street or something they won’t like. I wonder if that will be spread out over one part or two. Sigh.
A big party wasn’t how I envisioned meeting my granddaughter for the first time; but, hey, this is Hollywood, and my grandchildren have become reality show props, too. At the time I emailed “yes,” I didn’t realize I was being set up for a two-parter, even though it was clear I was being invited to be part of a segment for my daughter’s reality show.
Spoiler alert. Don’t read this if you plan to sit through an hour of people looking at their watches and saying “she’s late.” I decided my first meeting with my granddaughter should be on home video, not primetime cable; so I emailed that I would not be attending.
Back to other reality stars. My husband taught me that the plots have to be fresh and updated. The same old whining gets tired after a while. Enough complaining about what may or may not have happened during first grade or YMCA camp, or what vegetable you were forced to endure, especially when you are privileged enough to be on TV and get paid for it.
For all the reality show personalities, please remember that real life doesn’t get edited to make things better or worse or get better ratings. You’re responsible for what you do. Life isn’t just a show. And your families can’t just be props. Make your own season finale without creating conflicts you will regret later.
