The Lost Jail Bird


Looks like Lost star Michelle Rodriguez could be wearing those unflattering stripes soon. The actress was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in Honolulu on Dec. 1, her second such arrest in two years.

"We believe Ms. Rodriguez violated the terms of her probation," said office spokesman Frank Mateljan. "She now potentially faces up to 18 months in county jail."
In June 2004, Rodriguez, 27, was sentenced to 36 months of probation stemming from a DUI in Nov. 2003 and a hit-and-run the previous July (both in the Hollywood area). Of the mounting infractions, Mateljan said: "Ms. Rodriguez should definitely take this seriously. It's a shame it's come to this point."

Dang, Michelle always had that bad girl look but we never realized she was that bad! This looks like a good time to put down the vodka honey!

Laguna Update


Kristin Cavallari has sure been one busy girl! Not only has her new show started, (UPN's Get This Party Started) but she will also be guest-starring on UPN's Veronica Mars --

"Just heard that Kristin Cavalleri of 'Laguna Beach' will be guest starring on Veronica Mars. She will be playing a closeted lesbian cheerleader who turns to Veronica when a blackmailer threatens to out her and a number of other gay students at Neptune High. The episode tapes next week and will air in February."

Go Team Kristin! We have a feeling Kristin will be the new "IT" girl of 2006!

Courteney Cox Is A Scaredy Cat


Courteney Cox has a phobia of telephones.

The former 'Friends' beauty has confessed she hates speaking on the phone - except when driving her car. She admitted: "I hate talking on the phone. I just hate it. The only time I like talking on the phone is when I'm in my car. I don't like to sit down to speak."

What girl doesn't like to gab away on the phone Courteney? That's what cell phones are for...They are made for talking and shopping, or talking and walking, or talking and whatever!

Rotten Mischa


Well as much as Cariel would like to make fun of Mischa skiing, (it just seems tooooo easy!) it really doesn't seem fair since Cariel can't ski herself! (Emily is a much better skier!) In fact, Mischa looks like she can out ski Cariel any day. Oh well, we're sure more pics of Mischa looking rotten will surface soon!

Loser Of The Day


Bono has jokingly confessed he "flirts" with his daughters.

He said: "I'm such a flirt - but I've never met a halfway good performer who isn't. I'm surrounded by smart, intelligent, good-looking women that I can flirt with now, including my two daughters. I like the company of women."

Boy oh boy! Those glasses Bono always wears used to creep us out, now we can't even find words nasty enough to describe him!

New Couple Alert


When Joel Madden hosted his Bel Air holiday bash for the Dead Executives (his production team with brother Benji) this year, his brother Benji played host to Rumer Willis. In case you've forgot, Rumer is none other than the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore. Rumer arrived to the bash about 11 p.m., and Benji guided her through the masses, making introductions.

We find nothing weird about the alleged new couple, however we do think it's weird that Benji and his brother Joel have matching under age girlfriends. Benji is 26 and Rumer just turned 17.

Loser Of The Day


After getting hitched in a lavish ceremony last year, Tori Spelling is planning her next wedding.
She filed for divorce from actor hubby Charlie Shanian in October after just 15-months of marriage, but Tori has already found love again.

She already has a rock on her ring finger.
According to US Weekly magazine, Tori has gotten engaged to actor Dean McDermott, her co-star in her made for TV movie Mind Over Murder, which she filmed this summer.

Dean apparently proposed to Tori after the pair took a moonlit ride on a horse-drawn carriage around a Christmas tree farm outside Toronto. "We have searched our whole lives for each other and can't wait to now start our lives as one," the couple said in a statement issued to the magazine. "We both finally found our soulmate and we are beyond in love."

More like Dean McDermott is beyond in love with money. Tori sweety, can you possibly be that dumb? Okay, never mind.

Ricky Martin and "friend"



Ricky Martin and his "friend" vacationed on the island of St. Barth over the holidays. Both Ricky and his "friend" showed off their ninja moves on the beach. Actually they are probably practicing yoga or something, but Ricky doing ninja moves sounds so much better!

    Christina Aguilera is done being Dirrty. Thank god.

    She recently said "I think the Christina look I had before meeting Jordan is well and truly in my past. I've decided on a classier image for the future - more fitting for a married lady." Cute! We're happy to hear that, and hope that Christina and Jordan are in it four the long haul.

    Project Runway Re-Cap




    We are mad!!! One of our favorite designers Daniel Franco was eliminated last night.

    We thought his designs were beautiful, and it should have been Spawn of Satan Santino that was eliminated! His lingerie was horrible (the deer look), and he sold out his team and was super disrespectful to the judges during elimination. We think the only reason he's still on is because he's a drama queen and Bravo wants to keep him around for ratings. YUK! Now, we're rooting for Nik or the other Daniel.

    We're so sad to see Daniel Franco go. Seriously, Emily is devastated. His designs are beautiful, and we will not stop till we track him down and have our own Daniel Franco originals!! :) So, if you're reading this Daniel, contact us! Pleeeeeease, we have to have one of your dresses!

    Samantha Jones Update


    Kim Cattrall was in Sydney recently to promote her new book, 'Sexual Intelligence'. We love us some Samantha Jones, but we disapprove of that dress! Nothing seems to be "holding up" right. Bring us back that sassy Kim we all knew and loved!

    Over for Good


    Renée Zellweger and country star Kenny Chesney's brief marriage is now officially over. The couple's annulment was finalized with court papers filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

    Zellweger said, "Kenny and I decided not to publicly discuss the details of our relationship because we felt that it would be a compromise of personal integrity. I admire Kenny and am grateful for the strength he demonstrated in choosing to honor our decision despite the difficulties."

    Why were these two even together? We can be sure when we say: This is one relationship that no one will miss!

    The teacup martini glass. A floral printed teacup with gold foil trim and details is seamlessly blended with a standard clear glass stem and base.

    Would You or Wouldn't You

    Tips for Surviving Your girlfriends Holiday Family Gatherings:

    We realize that visiting your girlfriends family over the holiday's isn't always first on your to do list. However, some situations you just can't avoid...And your girlfriend probably won't forgive you if you miss this one.

    So listen up boys cause we have some helpful tips for you!

    1. Be outgoing and be yourself, but remember its not your family. If chubby Aunt Martha starts talking about how hot her new lingerie is, make sure you know when to keep your mouth shut. Sometimes it's better to just take the back seat.

    2. Don't get smashed! Many family's like to serve alcohol at their gatherings. It's great to have some drinks and join the family sing-a-long, just make sure not to throw up afterwards.

    3. Sometimes it's better to lie. If big ole' grandma gives you a crochet snowman sweater you don't have to wear it. Say thank you like you mean it, (even though you think it's an ugly piece of trash) and that should be enough.

    4. Just remember to be polite, be yourself, and it'll be over soon! :)
