On Halloween last year, I adopted Cholula. Here's a photo of the beast as a rather gangly puppy (I tried to take a new photo this morning, but she just wouldn't sit still with the squirrels running around outside). I've wanted my own dog for years and even after 2 years working at the animal shelter, I waited. When I got sick last year, I decided I needed a dog to keep me company. Senseless and selfish, I know, but it was a long time coming.
After scouring Petfinder and contacting several rescues, I heard back from one that had this pup (then inexplicably called Sarah) who reminded me a bit of a minature version of my family's Rottweiler. I visited only this dog and knew I couldn't say no. So on Halloween, I picked her up and she was mine. Thanks to my parents for dealing with what I thought was a housebroken teenage dog that turned out, after a vet visit, to be a needy, untrained 6 month old puppy while I was in the hospital and during my recooperation. She makes me smile every single day.

Dress code at the premiere of This Is It? Your choice of vintage MJ t-shirt or something slightly S&M inspired. There was lots of leather, spike heels, the color black, and even some safety pin fashion (ew, Paris Hilton...just ew). The squeaky clean Julianne Hough opted to pair a black corset and leather jacket (with patent leather shoulder patches) with black leather leggings and thigh high boots -wth?

Gimme More! Real Housewives Series
Teri Hatcher! She has confirmed this morning that she has the H1N1 virus and cannot film scenes for Desperate Housewives. Bad timing as they were set to shoot Christmas scenes where a small commuter plane crashes into a Wisteria neighborhood party, killing off some people. All women get time off as production halts while Teri recovers.
Gimme More! Teri Hatcher
I know I've blogged about her frequently as of late and some of you find her boring, but I find her very refreshing and classically stylish. I came across these photos of her at Good Morning America this morning as well as the photos of her at the Avon event last night in Narcisco Rodriguez and was struck again by how much I like her wardrobe (most of the time).
Her major staple continues to be Olivier Theyskens, who she credits with her style reinvention following her divorce around age 30. Olivier was previously with Nina Ricci, but parted ways in March after the label wanted a more commercial vision that Olivier couldn't get behind. Their new Creative Director is former LV designer Peter Copping, while Olivier is pondering another stab at his own label.
Gimme More! Reese Witherspoon
Last night in New York City was the Avon Foundation's Champions Who Change Women's Lives celebration. On hand were brand spokeswomen Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Conrad (in Herve Leger), who both looked lovely. Also present were Courteney Cox and Fergie, who sang at the event.
Kim, Robert, and Khloe Kardashian enjoyed front-row seats at the Lakers game last night. Khloe cheered her new hubby Lamar Odom on to a 99-97 victory over the Clippers. Following the game, they headed to Katsuya Hollywood for some dinner.
Ladies, who is trying the thigh high boots over the jeans look? Are you liking it?

I tell you, there is no sweeter gig in Hollywood than hosting a party. Thousands of dollars, free transportation and sometimes lodging, and all just so you and your friends show up to a party and have fun! Lo Bosworth did just that, cashing in as hostess of hosting the launch party for Verizon's Samsung Rogue last night at Jet.
Gimme More! Lo Bosworth
Of all the random people to include in Sex and the City 2, there's Miley Cyrus. Miley plays herself and gets into a brawl with Kim Cattrall's character when they both show up on the red carpet in the same dress. Miley said she got to keep the spiked necklace, but had to leave the dress behind for Kim's additional shoots. Kim wears the same size as a teenager?!?
I really, really want this to be like Love Actually, but I'm a bit nervous that it's not gonna live up to the cast list. Anybody going to check this one out?
GEEZ, would you look at what Heidi Montag is wearing? Blue Birkin and nail polish, pink tank top, leather skirt and thigh high boots? What is this?!? Audrina Patridge looks so much better than her as they shot scenes for The Hills yesterday. Meanwhile, Brody Jenner and his girlfriend Jayde Nicole grabbed lunch at Urth Caffe. Glad they are eating cheaply because they are being sued by scumball extraordinaire Joe Francis for their bar fight this summer.
Like everybody else, it's kind of hard for me to look at Chris Brown without wincing. I do hope he's changed, but it's pretty hard to forget what this baby faced boy did to RiRi.
That said, I knew this song would be hot. Chris is immensely talented and when paired with Lil Wayne, you've basically guaranteed your hit.

We've seen a lot from Amy Winehouse...a lot of weirdness. But breast implant just wasn't something I expected from somebody who has a missing tooth visible in her smile. Here she was out last night (with her goddaughter no less) flashing the paparazzi her new chi chis.
Gimme More! Amy Winehouse
