We bumped into a few celebrity odds and ends that didn't merit their own posts. One or more of them strain credulity. Is Alyssa Milano off baseball players? The Who's The Boss starlet has decided to stop dating baseball players according to the Houston Post Chronicle. Is Mena Suvari engaged? FemaleFirst is reporting that she's engaged to a handsome music producer who is not very tall named Simone Sestito. Is Seth McFarlane bf-gf with Amanda Bynes? Film.com's The Evil Beet reports that McFarlane seemed smitten by the 22-year old Bynes.
A-Rod is not having an easy go of it lately. The Yankee star has all this weird relationship stuff going on and, evidently, threw a lame party on Monday night. Meanwhile, other New York baseball players had a great time at their own parties that night. What else can Alex Rodriguez do to make us love him?
Like the Cider House, it looks like the Witherspoon House has some rules. And Jake Gyllenhaal is going to have to change his awesomeness in order to accommodate these new statutes. Is he up to the task? Or does this freebird need to fly?
Finally, someone is asking the voters the tough questions. Which candidate would you rather kiss? Overwhelmingly Match.com users would rather pucker up with Barack Obama than John McCain. The 1,433 readers, per Reuters, rated Obama higher than McCain by a 77 to 23 ratio. The article goes on to mention that the poll was not scientific, which in this case probably means that the users had to practice kissing their hands rather than stand-ins for the Senators.
Oh, the young turks are talkin' nuptials. Per Harper's Bazaar via People, Jessica Biel thinks that marriage would be pretty neato. And while she and my man Justin Timberlake reportedly don't have anything in the works, she says she's looking forward to the prospect one day. And motherhood. And 'having it all.' And all that entails. Time will tell if all that fun goes down. It would be sort of the ideal situation. JT makes enough money that Jessica Biel could sign onto passion projects and treat acting as more of a hobby than a job.
It appears that Will Smith is down with open marriage as Holy Moly reports. And we mean 'down' like the kids mean it as a synonym for into, i.e. "hey Todd, I'm down like 4 flat tires for this picnic." Anyways, the Hancock star appears to have an understanding with wife Jada Pinkett Smith in which both are permitted to sex up other people. The main stipulation is that they have to give the other Smith a heads up about the sitchy. Will Smith says, and we're paraphrasing, that he'd feel like a real dope if he found out only after the fact. It looks like this is another way in which Dan Eldridge and Will Smith are alike. We're not 100% what the other ways are but who doesn't want to be like Will Smith?
WYou ever think that 'stars' are completely different from the rest of us? And then you're like, "hey, you know, I bet that Brad Garrett from Everybody Love Raymond occasionally eats, sleeps, and excretes. And he's a pretty big star. Do you think other stars have to do the gross stuff that we peasants do?" And then you read on Digital Spy about Lauren Conrad googling dates and you're like, "Damn, I do that. I might have to start watching this The Hills program. Maybe they're doing some other awesome stuff I should get into, like kickboxing."
Swimmer Dana Torres is tearing up the swim lanes. And her ex-husband is not terribly impressed. He could care less. The story as to why is fairly interesting.
Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman have officially split per their representatives. Bummer, man. But is it even possible for such high-profile comedians to stay together?
After front-page coverage in the NYTimes Sunday Styles section, not to mention almost two years on the brutal front lines of the legal battlefield, Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook have finally settled the terms of their divorce.
