Apparently the shots were taken by famed photographer Mario Testino over the course of two days in Malibu.  The photos all dolled up in ‘Club Campari’ style, from bathing suits to evening gowns, Alba shows off her post baby body.  Alba said she got to dress up “sort of femme fatale/screen siren”.  Alba said she loved the styles saying,

“It was all very chic, but still young and cool, my favorite combination!”

US Magazine is reporting that Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt of The Hills fame, eloped on November 19 while vacationing in Cabos San Lucas, Mexico.

These two just don’t stop!  So not only did these two sell their wedding photos to US Magazine but they didn’t even tell their family they were getting married!  I wonder if Spencer had anything to do with that…

Spencer even poured on the slimy charm in his vows to Heidi saying:

“Heidi, from the moment you came into my life, I knew my life would never be the same without you. You are the light in my life like the sun to the earth! Your loving warmth makes me want to be a better person. Being with you, I feel complete. I’m honored to even be able to call you my wife. You are the most amazing, loving and caring woman on this planet. I will love you forever and always.”

Heidi’s sister Holly, even admitted to The Hills Aftershow hosts, Dan and Jessi, that she had no idea about the nuptuals.  I guess we shouldn’t be shocked, it is Spencer and Heidi we are talking about here.  Whatever they can do to get another photo opportunity….Let’s just hope they don’t get their own Newlyweds show.  One of those is enough!  Maybe we will get to see them divorce too – sooner or later?

Brad Pitt talked to Oprah in an interview scheduled to air on November 19 and revealed, that as a family with six children,  he and girlfriend, Angelina Jolie, don’t get to go to the mall. Brad explained that it takes a half-hour just to get everyone buckled in!  Bradd also credited Angelina saying,

“Angie’s militant about it.  She’s right on top of it. Thank God, because I am always forgetting something”.

Brad also tells Oprah about Shiloh’s latest quirk, saying that she only wants to be called John.  Or Peter.  Apparently it’s a Peter Pan thing, Brad exlains to intensly happy and attentive Oprah.  

Take a look at the trailer….Oprah just seems a little too excited to be talking to Brad about his family and Shiloh!   

US Magazine is reporting that in an interview to British show GMTV, Angelina admitted that she struggled with breastfeeding twins, Viv and Knox, simultaneously.  She also admits that its much harder than it looks in the books and after three months she stopped, saying that’s as much as she could do.  But Brangelina doesn’t mind the hectic family life saying, “We appreciate how much that keeps us focused on what’s important”.  So is their life really as pretty of a picture as they seem to paint it?!



Evolution Revolution by tweegnlb

When someone sits down to relax they often turn on the TV.

When they turn on the TV, they like to choose what to watch.

This sounds fare, but a new ruling by the CRTC (Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission) may change things forever.

The CRTC has decided to reject airing American cable channels on Canadian television screens, effectively cutting viewers program choices in half.

If a viewer is a fan of a particular American television program, they may have to wait months before a Canadian network or specialty channel picks up the show (which often fall behind American broadcasts by almost two seasons), to even see a new episode!

As good as Can-Con (Canadian content) laws are for making sure Canadian produced programming has a place on Canadian television, they should hardly have the ability to restrict (from the source) the variety of programming available to viewers in the modern age of satellite and digital cable.

Some viewers pay hundreds of dollars per month to get the channels and events they choose, because those are the things that interest them most!  It seems a backward step to encroach upon ones freedom of choice in the world of ‘customization of entertainment’ that has arisen to compete with other forms of entertainment media such as the internet.

Maybe that will be the slap in the face that the CRTC needs to smarten up and realize what they are doing.

The ease of modern downloading software, combined with the rising popularity of television archive host sites, may be the answers frustrated viewers are looking for.  Most people can now navigate the internet well enough to find what they’re looking for, and with the help of massive search engines, like Google, those who can’t can still find something or someone to help them get there.

If the law makers want to force the issue, then the people will turn to the lawless land of the internet to get their entertainment.  Most modern computers have the ability to produce high deffinition audio and video output, that rivals what is offered by cable and satellite companies, and yet only costs a one time fee.

The freedom of the internet (pun intended) could destroy the grip that historical television entertainment rule makers have had on us up to this point.

Come on people, the revolution is only a click away…



Maybe you’re the problem…you think? by hyphenator

Lauren Conrad appeared on David Letterman on Monday night and proceeded to get ribbed by the host!  David Letterman asked the reality star about her feud with ex-BFF Heidi Montag, and proceeded by telling her:

“That raises the question…maybe your the problem, you think?”

Lauren managed to laugh it off and even had the opportunity to stick to Spencer!  Letterman continued his antics by calling Spencer Pratt a “weasel” and then asked, “…what’s his deal?”  Letterman went on to say that when Spencer was on his show, “he had some big giant watch on…” and Lauren shot in:

“He was probably checking his 15 minutes!”

Just a couple of weeks ago, it was reported that the reality television, catfighting duo, Conrad and Heidi Montage had a reunion.  Apparently, Conrad was at STK in Los Angeles celebrating her runway show with family and friends, when Montag asked if she could congratulate Conrad on her runway show. The two were then seen having an conversation and then hugging.

So maybe they will be friends again….But do we really care that much?



Case Dismissed! by hyphenator

People Magazine is reporting that a mis-trial was declared in Britney Spear’s trial for driving without a valid licence.  After one day of witness testimony, the jury members were deadlocked 10-2 in Britney’s favor, resulting in the Judge declaring a mis-trial. 

Things must be starting to look up.  The prosecutor even stated “I don’t think it’s appropriate to ask or a retrial”.

This comes after Britney’s first single Womanizer, released off her upcoming album Circus, debuted at #96 has jumped to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.  This is Britney’s first #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 since 1999’s “…Baby One More Time”.
