Donna Martin Graduates To New 90210

Tori Spelling AKA Donna Martin, was on the set of 90210 this past Tuesday shooting scenes for the 19th episode of the show. Spelling was filming with Jennie Garth, who's somewhat of a semi-regular.

Donna is said to be having marital problems with husband David. Let's see how this plays out.

Jessica Stroup, who plays Donna's sister in law, Silver was also spotted shooting scenes that day.

I thought episode 19 was the one Jason Priestley was directing? His episode is supposed to be fierce.

Sheesh, why didn't Shannen Doherty show up for this one?

Edward Cullen And Bella Swan Dolls

Tonner Dolls are in the midst of releasing the authorized figures of Twilight sweethearts, Edward 'Vampire" Cullen and Bella "Mortal Girl" Swan.

The dolls are supposed to be in the likeness of the two stars of the film, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

Maybe there's a smidgen of Robert in his doll, but the Bella one does not look like Kristen @ all, I think.

The price for these individuals? $125 a piece and pre-orders have been going on for a couple of weeks now. Who knows? They may even be selling them outright.

How I Met Your Mother Gals Preggers Together

Last night @ the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in North Hollywood, three of the stars of that great show, How I Met Your Mother, were on hand to promote their show.

Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan, and Cobie Smulders were decked out in fine gear as they posed for press. Hannigan and Smulders showed off their baby bumps. Their pregnancies will not be written into the storylines; so I read somewhere.

For those who haven't watched the HIMYM, you must check it out. It's totally good and very humorous. The story telling is fabulous; the way this show does it.

New Kids Touring This Spring

The fab 5, New Kids on the Block, are coming back to the US this spring to dazzle their fans once again.

Celebuzz has the details, including the dates, places, and when tickets will go on sale.

Sadly, they will not return to the bay area. The closest venues the guys will be performing will be in Reno and Los Angeles.

So if you were debating about buying the New Kids track jacket, you'll have to track it down south.

JenCon New Face Of Revlon

Actress Jennifer Connelly was in Brooklyn on Friday shooting a commercial for Revlon.

Connelly is the latest star to join the list of celebrities advertising the cosmetics giant.

The 38 year old mother of two is part of the ensemble cast of the Drew Barrymore produced film, He's Just Not That Into You, opening February 6th.

She won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress a few years back, right?

Marisa Tomei Is How Old?

I had to check her imdb page to make sure; Marisa Tomei is 44 years old. I don't know why I'm so stunned; she's been in the business for a while now.

And she looks really good for her age.

Remember Untamed Heart with Christian Slater? God, I don't know why I loved that movie so much when it came out.

I'll always remember her as Maggie on The Cosby Show spinoff, A Different World. She was only on for one season, I think.

Tomei attended the Screen Actors Guild Awards last night with her boyfriend, Logan Marshall Green.

Molly Ringwald's Double Bundle Of Joys

People magazine reported that actress Molly Ringwald will be welcoming not one, but two babies later this year. Ringwald and her husband will add a brother and a sister for 5 year old daughter Mathilda.

She currently stars as the mom on ABC Family's 'The Secret Life of the American Teenager'.

I remember the short lived sitcom Molly did with Lauren Graham and Jenna Elfman on ABC years ago. It was called Townies and they played best friends who worked in a diner together. Was I the only one who watched that? I would record it on VHS if I wasn't planning on being home when it aired. And you know what? I was rummaging through my VHS archives a while back and came across one of the episodes! What a find.

Back to Molly's twins: she should so name them Blaine and Andie!

Twilight Empire Outtakes

So many magazines that Twilight cast members have been featured on the last few months have been wowing fans with outtakes from their photoshoots.

Vanity Fair, InStyle, and Entertainment Weekly have been doing it here and there and so has Empire Magazine.

Below are just a few outtakes from the Empire shoot featuring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Rachelle LaFevre, and Cam Gigandet.

Sarah Jessica Parker's Brisk Walk

Sex and the City star and producer Sarah Jessica Parker was snapped along the West Village in New York this morning as she was walking her son, James Wilkie to school.
Now what kind of pants is that little boy wearing? They're not pajamas, right?

Parker recently commented that she and her husband, Matthew Broderick don't bother addressing their alleged marital woes since they're false.

And it isn't exactly set in stone that a sequel is set for their blockbuster foursome movie. Guess we'll just have to wait and see on that one still.

Ross And Hathaway Back On ER

Entertainment Tonight reported yesterday that George Clooney was taping a special appearance for the series finale of ER, the show that made him a bonafide star.

It was also reported that Clooney's co-star, Julianna Margulies will be making a return as well.

The set will be closed when the guest spots are filmed.

Noah Wylie is set return in a future episode and Anthony Edwards, Laura Innes, and Alex Kingston did their part earlier this season. What about Eriq LaSalle and Sherry Stringfield (Susan!)?

That would be so good and I can't wait to watch.

Clooney played pediatrician Doug Ross who settled with Nurse Carol Hathaway and their twin daughters in Washington. Their characters were briefly mentioned last season when Gloria Reuben's character, Jeannie, asked about them.

ER's final episode airs Thursday, April 2.

Party Of 3

Last night @ Blue Plate in Santa Monica, Alias star Jennifer Garner and husband Ben Affleck had dinner with their oldest daughter, 3 year old Violet.

Baby daughter Seraphina, who was born a couple of weeks ago sat this one out.

Mr. Affleck can be seen on the big screen when 'He's Just Not That Into You' opens on February 6th.

Peter And Jennie's Night Out

Husband and wife duo Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth stepped out last night for some alone time by having dinner @ Katsu-Ya in Los Angeles.

The couple have three daughters together; Luca, Lola, & Fiona.

Garth currently stars as Kelly Taylor on 90210 (she'll appear in tonight's episode) and Facinelli is set to reprise his vampire role as Dr. Carlisle Cullen in New Moon later this year.

These two have been together since 1995! Hep Hep Hooray!

Private Practice Still On The Air

I've been wondering about that and why it can't hold my interest.

I love Tim Daly and Amy Brenneman is a wonderful actress but still.

It shocks me that they keep this and not Dirty Sexy Money.

And I'm so hoping Lipstick Jungle gets a reprieve. More Andrew McCarthy, please.

Venti Latte

I'm halfway done with my latte and man is it giving me a stomachache!


Working Gossip Girl Actors

Photographed out on the chilly streets of New York City yesterday, cast members of Gossip Girl were bundled up in their big puffy black coats in between filming their scenes.

Blake Lively was out with Leighton Meester.

Penn Badgley was chatting with Chace Crawford.

And Jessica Szohr was walking around carrying her dog.

No sign of Ed Westwick or Taylor Momsen.

President Obama

Barack Obama was just inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States moments ago.

Kristen Stewart Arrives In Utah

Arriving on Sunday in Utah for the annual Sundance Film Festival, Kristen Stewart was spotted with her dad to promote her latest film, Adventureland.

She'll be in town a couple days or so for the screening and participate in more interviews. She's probably thrilled about that.

Do you think her interviews will just consist of questions about Adventureland? I'm sure reporters will sneak in some Twilight and New Moon inquiries.

MLK And Barack

Today is Martin Luther King Day and he would have turned 80 years old last Thursday.

And tomorrow is Inauguration Day which means that Barack Obama will take over as President of the United States.

Millions have flocked to DC to witness the historic moment when Obama is sworn in. So much enthusiasm is in the air.

Let's see what the next 4 years bring...

Kate And Leo In London

Actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet were @ the London premiere of their current film, Revolutionary Road earlier this evening @ the Leicester Square.

Of course it was one week ago today when Kate finally nabbed her Best Actress award @ the Golden Globes for her portrayal of April Wheeler, suburban housewife.

The film is based on the Richard Yates novel set in the 1950's about a young couple with two kids living in Connecticut trying to desperately seal the cracks in their crumbling marriage.

Revolutionary Road was directed by Sam Mendes, husband to Kate.

All I know is she better get that Oscar too.

More Vanity Fair Outtakes With Twilight Stars

Another round of outtakes from the Vanity Fair shoot were released recently featuring the stars of Twilight.

That is a lot. I don't think I've seen so many outtakes from one shoot published in some form. It shows just how in demand these pictures are. And to think there are tons more we'll probably never get to see.

More than a few of course feature main stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

Stewart is set to appear @ the Sundance Film Festival to promote her upcoming film, Adventureland.

The Smell

So I was on my home from Seattle last night and the brief flight was filled with an unpleasant odor.

I settled in my seat by the window and started to read my novel. Minutes passed and I noticed that I was inhaling a scent that was definitely not refreshing. It wasn't freesia or the peel of a citrusy orange. Nor was it cologne or perfume. I knew what it was instantly without glancing over to confirm my suspicion. It was funky feet.

I cocked my head to the side and slightly turned to pretend I was glancing out my window into the darkness of the sky. The window of course had a reflection due to the blackness outside and the dim of the light inside. I then saw the culprit; the bare foot slipped inside of a sandal perched atop the gentleman's other leg. I made a hissing sound.

Please! No! I thought to myself. I faced the other way and hunched over a little leaning to my left side. Luckily, the flight wasn't full and there wasn't an occupant in the middle seat. Of course I knew I couldn't keep the current position I put myself in for the duration of the nearly two hour flight.

I'd seen that the bare sandled foot transitioned to the floor but that did not help. At all. I'd breathe into my scarf for support but that started to get suffocating.

I could have moved but the lights were dimmed and the cabin crew kept walking up and down the aisle taking drink orders and then passing out Ritz crackers and then coming down with the beverage cart. I was trapped. Enduring the smell and causing my face to crease and frown was the option I was left with.

I eyed the smelly feet guy as we made our way through the terminal. I shook my head.

Lesson to be learned kids; make sure you wash your feet before having it exposed to others in somewhat enclosed spaces.

Rufus And Lily Run Into Dan And Serena

Another new episode of Gossip Girl airs tomorrow on the CW and the kids of Constance Billiard and St. Jude find out if they get into their precious dream school, Yale University.

Blair (Leighton Meester) has trouble accepting a B from her new Lit teacher who has a fangirl in Serena (Blake Lively) and a maybe crush on S' boyfriend, Dan (Penn Badgley)?

In this sneek peak provided to you, Dan picks up Serena for school and they have an awkward moment with their respective parents, Rufus (Matthew Settle) and Lily (Kelly Rutherford), who have just spent the night together getting busy.

Wow! So D & S are dating, their little siblings, Jenny (Taylor Momsen) and Eric (Connor Paulo) act as if they're brother and sister, their parents are also dating each other, and Lily and Rufus have an older son together who is presumed to be dead but really isn't. Sounds sick but it really isn't. Yet.

Oh, and Nate and Vanessa go to the opera.

Jessica And Justin Takin' A Walk

A supposed warm day out in Los Angeles today, Jessica Biel and boyfriend Justin Timberlake took her dog out for a nice walk.

The duo were fashionably sporty looking as they strolled along.

These two have been going out a long time, huh?
