Gwyneth Paltrwo and her mom Blythe Danner took cutie pie Apple out for some miniature golf in LA this week. Gwyneth is filming Ironman in LA and has actually been living in the Santa Monica home she grew up in, which Blythe sold for $8.6 million a while back. Apparently she was very upset when her mom sold the house . Lucky for Gwyn, she was recently able to rent the house from the new owner and even had Apple's third birthday party there. Sounds like Gwyneth found a way forgive her mom and still enjoy her old home even if it is temporary.
Jessica continues her attack on the media and her sex symbol status in the upcoming issue of Parade magazine. She talks about the paparazzi, which she clearly hates, how golf makes her dorky and looking for stronger female roles in her films
- On her night life:
“Sometimes I like to go out, but usually after work I just go home, take a bath, watch movies. Instead of going out, I’d rather have my friends over and play games at my house—stupid games like charades or Pictionary or Monopoly. Or maybe Between the Sheets—it’s an easy way to win your money back when you’ve lost it all in poker.”
- On working in the movie biz:
“I’m in a business that’s completely driven by white males. The majority of the writers and directors are men...And even though I’m not, like, such a huge feminist, I do want to produce movies on my own that are female-driven and empowering to women. The woman’s voice really isn’t present in Hollywood.”
"It can come and go at any time, but I no longer have the intense nerve pain that is associated with RSD, thank God," Adbul tells the mag. "I have four titanium plates in my neck. I've had 14 surgeries over the years," "I had an operation the same evening as the first season finale of American Idol."
"If I appear exhausted on television , it's because I am!" she says. "I have a lot of sleepless nights because I'm in so much pain. I was taking far more medication on earlier seasons [of Idol], and nobody said anything. I try to say something and I stumble, and that's what people have picked up on. I'm not polished."
2.)Hunter Cross is a former model turned actor when he "got the acting bug and moved to L.A. in January" and then almost instantly "he got the chance to be a counselor on The Simple Life ".
3.) Hunter told the Herald-Mail about his “mutual attraction” with Paris Hilton during “five weeks of shooting.” But the paper says “he does not know whether he will see her once her current legal problems are resolved.” In other words, since they’re not in contact any more, that romance was probably faked, too
4.) PLUS, they had a trailer where they got their hair/make-up done and the "campers" were auditioned for, even if they aren't actors, the producers chose who would get to "go to camp"

The troubled pop princess, who spent a month in rehab earlier this year, was then carried out of the bar sobbing and covered in sick. It’s not unusual to see Britney out on the town these days, but never in this kind of sorry state. The singer disappeared to the bathroom just an hour after arriving at the Mondrian Hotel’s swanky Sky Bar with five friends. And it wasn’t long before hotel security got a call saying she needed urgent help.
My source said: “Britney was found slumped over the toilet bowl with make-up smeared over her face and her wig hanging off. “She had a room booked at the hotel but was too ill to stay and was begging her bodyguard to take her home. “She looked a real mess and was sitting on the floor with her head over the bowl throwing up. “There was vomit down the front of her black dress and around her mouth.
“Britney was on her knees and must have been sick four or five times. She didn’t really seem with it, but I don’t know if she was drunk or not.” The mother-of-two then had to be helped out of the hotel because she couldn’t stand up by herself. The source added: “It was really sad. Everyone thinks she’s getting back on track after her comeback shows but that’s clearly not the case. I think she needs proper help.”

Nicole Richie emailed friends inviting them to a Memorial Day party on Sunday May 28th. The kicker was that the invitation said no girls over 100 lbs. would be admitted.
"There will be a scale at the front door. No girls over 100lbs allowed in. Start starving yourself now. See you all then!!!"
The party was held at "Masha's" house, a nickname for Paris Hilton. Mischa Barton , a guest at the party, collapsed and was hospitalized after mixing alcohol with antibiotics. Nicole's rep insists that she was kidding in the email.
"This invitation was sent via email to her friends who understand that she was responding in a joking manner to the constant untruths printed about her in the media .I would hate to be a rep for one of these "celebs", you basically have to lie through your teeth day after day, no matter how obvious, just to give your starlet an ounce of saving grace.

Britney Spears wants the heiress to pay in prison. Don’t expect Britney Spears to sign a “Free Paris” petition anytime soon, as the pop star is now gloating over former pal Paris Hilton’s jail sentence. And one insider tells OK! that Brit couldn’t be happier she ended her friendship with the Simple Life star. “Britney is relieved to have distanced herself from her ex-party buddy,” the source says. “Rest assured - you won’t see Britney speaking to Paris through the glass petition in the jail on visiting day…”
[Britney] “blames Paris for a lot of her image problems that she had before rehab,” the insider confides. “Britney is happy to be living clean and sober, far away from Paris’ mess. She’s also glad that the attention of making mistakes is now on somebody else.”
Debra Messing was spotted in Soho this past weekend taking a break from filming "The Starter Wife," a miniseries which premieres on USA this Thursday. Debra recounts her filming as quite different from Will & Grace:
In The Starter Wife we shot it like a film, we shot it out of order, it was 4 months, 6 hours worth of film, so there was the luxury of time to tell the story. So I think the comedy comes out of character more and there is more of a balance between the drama and the comedy."
"She also wants their children to see it as a huge celebration of her and Brad's love for them. The daytime part of the celebration will be for the kids, with clowns and balloons and fire-eaters. But then the real party will begin in the evening."This source says that Angelina will start planning this Fal

Sacha and fiancee, Isla Fisher, made their way through LAX over the holiday weekend. Perhaps the two were off to celebrate, as Sacha just signed on to translate his wildly popular Borat character onto the pages of two new faux travel guides, tentatively tiltledBorat: Touristic Guidings To Minor Nation of U.S. and A. and Borat: Touristic Guidings To Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
Oh. Adam Brody. Why were you so flagrantly making out with a random girl outdoors at the Annual Love Ball, Europe's largest AIDS benefit, in Vienna this weekend? So, so blatantly getting busy in the green, green grass. Adam flew into town with Heatherette, the designers highlights at this year's ball, and obviously made himself quite at home at the party. As for his breaking my heart by apparently not getting back together with R-Bils anytime soon, he recently said this to InTouch about his break up:
- On the actual split: It was the most dignified breakup you could imagine. Neither of us left the other for anyone else, and we're still friends.
- On his relationship with Rachel: I'm not someone who looks for drama or goes around breaking up every other week. So, I think my relationship with Rachel seemed kind of boring
Kate was looking super fit and wholesome leaving a gym in NYC with her Smart Water this week, but she hasn't lost the Rock'n'Roll edge she shared with her Rock Star ex-husband. She showed off her wild side at a recent Velvet Revolver show in NYC. Page Six reports that she spent the evening hanging out with an older man and showing off her hot black pumps. From there she was off to Pink Elephant for some table dancing!
The Affleck family headed out of LA early Saturday morning for the Memorial Day holiday. Maybe the family needed some serious relaxation time, especially after seeing Ben's rant on Real Time with Bill Maher Friday night. As we all know, Ben loves to be involved in politics and this time in particular he really let loose. There is a video where he talks about Democrats living in fear and being cowards, and then the real name calling begins
Following a very public flirting session with the newly single Cameron Diaz , the 39-year-old man was spotted flirting again this time with young starlet Mandy Moore at the MGM Grand Garden in Sin City. Onlookers watched the pair chat it up “as if no one else was in the room.”
Criss and Mandy first met on the set of his hit A&E show ‘Mindfreak’ where a blindfolded Criss drove Mandy through the streets of Los Angeles and ended up at her favorite restaurant.
"Brandy recklessly wantonly, unlawfully, and maliciously” operated the car responsible for causing a collision that claimed the life of Awatef Aboudihaj."
This is the third lawsuit case against Norwood as a result of the accident. Brandy also lost her job as a judge on "America's Got Talent" due to the crash. The latest suit is seeking payment of medical bills, court costs and punitive damages.
The 21-year-old celeb was rushed to an undisclosed medical facility in Los Angeles, where we are told she is "resting comfortably" ... the starlet is with family and "feeling much better."
Star Magazine reports that friends of Angelina Jolie are concerned over her recent major weight-loss. It has been reported that Angie is still broken up over the death of her mother and it's taken a toll on her eating habits.
"The two have not been getting along lately," a source tells Page Six.
Nicole is so mad at her mom, Brenda-Harvey Richie, that she is not even seeing her in her deepest times of need.
"Brenda was in the hospital. She had a hysterectomy," said a source, "and Nicole hasn't visited her since."
Nicole's rep declined to comment.

The party may finally be over for Lindsay Lohan. The star-crossed starlet is headed back to rehab, In Touch Weekly magazine reported last night, after a wild Memorial Day weekend in which she crashed her car, was busted for DUI and was later photographed passed out in a car.
"She finally realizes it's the right thing to do," In Touch quoted a friend of the actress as saying. "She is going willingly." The magazine said the "Georgia Rule" star was due to check into Promises in Malibu, Calif. - the same facility Britney Spears went to this year after shaving her head. The report came as the Web site x17online.com posted photos showing LiLo - who won't be able to drink legally until she turns 21 on July 2 - taken just 48 hours after the crash. They show a seemingly wasted Lohan passed out in the passenger seat of a car driven by friend and deejay to the stars Samantha Ronson. The pair had just left a Memorial Day pool party at Teddy's at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood when a paparazzo caught up to them at a gas station around 4a.m. yesterday, x17 said.
Ronson tried in vain to rouse her sleeping pal, who wore a gray hoodie but no seatbelt, when she realized a photographer was snapping away, x17 said. Ironically, the photos show a medallion dangling in front of the slumbering star from the rear-view mirror. It reads "30 Days" - a reference to the number of days of sobriety.
One particularly shocking photo shows Lohan out of the car and on her knees, being watched over by two unidentified men as she seems to vomit on the sidewalk. Another shot shows what appears to be an inch-long fresh cut on the back of her left hand. It was unclear how or when she got the injury. Lohan's rep did not respond to repeated phone calls and e-mails seeking comment.
The actress' early morning antics came on the same weekend she was cited for driving under the influence after crashing her Mercedes convertible in Beverly Hills, Calif. Investigators found what they believed to be cocaine in the car after the accident, which happened around 5:30 a.m. Saturday after a night of club crawling. Cops said Lohan could face additional charges when she appears in court Aug. 24.
It's the latest in a series of increasingly out-of-control episodes for the young actress. Last summer, a producer scolded herfor failing to show up on the set of the movie "Georgia Rule." She checked into rehab in January, but it wasn't long before she was back on the club scene. And this month she reportedly was thrown out of a hotel where she made a scene after catching love interest Calum Best with another woman. The actress' friends are hoping the tumultuous weekend will serve as a wakeup call. "It's a tough time for her right now," said a close friend, who asked not to be identified. "Everyone is hoping that this is a learning lesson to all.

Only recently he revealed that he had no intention of marrying feisty blonde Anna because “it wouldn’t make a difference”. But now it seems his reluctance to commit was a sign the relationship was rocky.
The glamour couple had been dating since Anna starred as Enrique’s girlfriend in the video for his No3 hit Escape in 2002. They went through a tough time a few years later when Enrique was accused of having a fling with an Australian girl.
But three years ago Anna was spotted wearing a huge diamond on her ring finger. Enrique coughed to the separation in Swedish capital Stockholm on Friday, where he was doing interviews. Anna, currently in the States, reacted by hitting the town in Vegas.
During a recent shopping with pal Mischa Barton, she again shocked onlookers when her skin-tight orange dress revealed a concave chest and protruding hipbones. The star, who had appeared to have gained a few extra pounds in recent months, now looks to have dropped back down to a worrying low.
Last week, a spokesperson for the Simple Life star recently issued a statement denying Richie was in rehab for substance abuse and anorexia-related problems. The star recently wrapped filming on the latest season of The Simple Life. Reports were circulating in the US that she had briefly checked into California's Beau Monde Treatment Centre. Her publicist said: "She is not in rehab – she is at home in Glendale. Sobriety is an ongoing process but she is sober".
Last year, the 25-year-old confirmed that she had sought help for what her spokesperson called an inability to put on weight, but denied it was treatment for an eating disorder. In March, Richie was hospitalized for dehydration after she collapsed while filming her program with Paris Hilton. Her spokesperson said it was a result of the star suffering from hypoglycaemia.

I just wanted to reach out to all of you and explain some of the things that I have been faced with recently.
It's so funny how many stories are put out there about people. It's like we all want our side of the story out there as well, but at the end of the day only a few people care to hear what is really going on since the bad is always so much more interesting than the truth. I don't know why, but this is so weird to me. I used to be angry at the tabloids for printing horrible things about me, but now I try to just be numb to what I see. I saw Tyra Banks once get really upset and cry on her show because they made her look fat. We all want a certain image of ourselves out there, and at some point we all do really care what other people think or we wouldn't be here.
Recently, I was sent to a very humbling place called rehab. I truly hit rock bottom. Till this day I don't think that it was alcohol or depression. I was like a bad kid running around with ADD. I had a manager from a long time ago come in and try to direct me and my life after I got my divorce. I was so overwhelmed I think that I was in a little shock too. I didn't know who to go to. I realized how much energy and love I had put into my past relationship when it was gone because I genuinely did not know what to do with myself, and it made me so sad. I confess, I was so lost.
This letter is to not place blame on anyone, although I do see the world with a completely different set of eyes now. Being in that vulnerable state and taken to dinners and parties with friends and finding out later you paid for everything was a huge learning lesson for me. I think the whole problem was letting too many people into my life. You never know another persons[sic] intentions or what another person wants. I feel I was too open and looking for answers when I had it all to begin with. I have had to cut so many people out of my life. It is so sad, because if anyone is a family person...it is me. When I was little I remember every night watching movies with my family and feeling so at peace. Dancing and singing all the time just like a little girl should. Now recently I find with my children that I want them to have that feeling all of the time. I am having to face a lot of things right now since I have children of my own. A lot of insecurities from when I was little are coming up again. It is like we are never good enough.
I know everyone thinks that I am playing the victim, but I am not and I hate what is going on right now so much. Maybe this is the reason for this letter...to maybe allow people to look at me differently. It is like when you are a real woman and say what you feel and how you think things are supposed to be, that people just say you are a "bitch."
I feel like some of the people in my life made more of some issues than was necessary. I also feel like they knew I was beginning to use my brain for a change and cut some ties, so they wanted to be in more control of my life than me. I think it is actually normal for a young girl to go out after a huge divorce. I think it was a bigger issue because I had not gone out in such a long time.
I am 25 and I do still have a lot to learn, and I am going to make mistakes everyday, and I am sure every mistake I make will probably be on CNN or Good Morning America. I am only human people and I love you for still loving me.
I am sitting here at home and it is 6:25 and both of my sons are asleep. I am truly blessed to have them in my life. Everyday is so surreal. Life in general is so surreal and crazy.
I just hope this letter made some of you think a little bit more of me and where I am coming from. I just want the same things in life that you want...and that is to be happy.
It is just so weird because everyone has their own perception of me and how they think I really am. It is so weird how stories are told. There is your side, my side, and the truth. Somebody has to figure it out. I guess we will never really understand or figure out life completely. That's God's job. I can't wait to meet him...or her.
Quote of the month...
It is ok to disagree with people regarding certain issues. You're not being true to yourself if you succumb to others opinions because you feel guilty.
