Hollywood marriages seem to get on a pretty short trend these days. This makes you wonder how much thought these celebrities put into the word commitment as after all the wedding glitz … the evident divorce circus ring with their lawyers and the media certainly looks like a normal day on the set of their reel lives.
After merely 18 days of marriage, Sinead O’ Connor pulls the plug on her marriage to Barry Herridge. The singer who turned 45 this month, got hitched on the same day after her public manhunt for love and a lover.
Expressing her sentiments for her change of heart, O’Connor pleads guilty to rushing into the marriage and feels that her husband is much too nice to be trapped and married to a woman who wanted to smoke up on a wee blunt on their wedding night. Apparently, that little wild antic came as a shock and hurt the groom. At the same time,the singer confesses that the attitude of people in her husband’s life also had much bearing on her decision to set him free .
In spite of a painful ending, O’Connor still professes her love to 38 yr old Barry Herridge but feels he has so much to lose if they stayed together.

What’s in Justin Bieber’s Christmas Wish list? If one didn’t believe in Christmas or Santa Claus, then there’s no point to making a wish list eh?
It looks like Santa Claus wont be making any stops down the Bieber chimneys as the teen pop idol admits he was brought up with straight honest facts. The teenage heartthrob says he understood his mom’s logic on the matter of not letting him grow up believing in a fictional holiday figure of Santa Claus. Growing up and then realizing later on that he never really existed would almost seem like misleading him to believe in a lie and well, for some kids that would almost be heartbreaking.
This almost would seem sad to think, knowing how the average American kid would hardly get any sleep waiting on good ole St. Nick with a glass of milk and a plate of cookies. However Bieber says, he made an effort to keep the joy of the season for his friends and playmates a never said a word about this to them.
In the Bieber home, Christmas Day was a day to play a family traditional game of dice and chance in lieu of the usual exchange of gifts between family. The person who rolls the dice and gets double has the privilege to pick a present. And basically this allows each player the chance to either get what they wanted or end up with something totally out of their preference. The singer recalls having ended up with pots and pans instead of a much coveted Game Boy.
This year, Justin gets to spend Christmas back in the great white north and spend Christmas eve with his mom and head over to his dad’s house on Christmas day to spend time with his younger siblings. Incidentally, Justin is promoting his Christmas album with hopes that it brings cheers to everyone.

Despite being himself on TV, Simon Cowell still scores hot brownie points with the chics.  Engaged to make up artist Mezghan Hussainy, we’re sure you would think your gaydar was lightly beeping at some point.  As the world watches him tear almost every aspiring singer into tiny shredded pieces of broken dreams, this man opens his mouth and everyone stops on their tracks. The next reaction would either be a toss up between, running home to cry and hide under a rock …. or throw a perfectly aimed water bottle at him with a side of rotten tomatoes.

The man is simply a death trap for confidence but we’re guessing women find that attractive in a man. While being on American Idol, we’ve seen him cut up contestants and go on constant piss fights with fellow judge Paula Abdul.  The tension between them was pretty evident. Sexual tension for that matter!

Yes there was sexual between these two, but more on Paula Abdul’s part. The 52 yr. old British reality TV mogul found himself in a predicament of sorts weighing out his options on the idea of hooking up with 49yr old Paula Abdul.  Cowell admits that Paula was a million percent into pursuing him for a relationship but the thought of never having it good as the before, and the fact that they couldn’t even travel in the same plane, was enough to let their  dates end in just a good kiss.

Apparently, even  Denis Richards has a wild thing for Cowell, and thinks he’s one major hottie! The two were rumoured to have dated while she was 8 months with child.

Lady Gaga’s Outlandish Hairstyles

A bad hair day is a major emergency issue for most women and all are quick to hide a bed head, a bad cut and some serious hair color catastrophe. Being a celebrity can either let you get away with a few forgiving paparazzi shots and if you’re hair is anything close to Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, you either own it or just get used to the site of gaping mouths.

A Ring, Ms. Rounds and Rosie

There are blings about this holiday season and they come in heavy carat-age and loud cha-chings! It seems Christmas is the best time to get down on your knees and pop the question. If you’re not rockin’ a baby bump, sport a blinding rock on your finger .
Rosie O’ Donnel broke her happy news during a commercial break on The Rosie Show as she described her proposal to Michelle Rounds. With her head down and a lump in her throat, she hands out the bauble to the NY based IT head hunter whom she met at Starbucks.
There were plans of a Christmas wedding, but it seems the couple are considering a late spring celebration to accommodate more friends and loved ones. O’Donnel obviously is quite smitten with 28 yr old Rounds, saying that she knew that Michelle was exactly what she wanted just a week after they met in September!
Truth of the matter was, O’Donnel had her gay-dar on the blink at the time and actually thought Michelle was straight. In fact, Michelle’s parents are in painful shock as they always thought she was straight. Well, that $100,000 rock on her finger certainly sets everything straight. Significantly, Rosie chose a platinum ring that shows off a ring of rounds that sets a cushion cut 4-carat diamond.
Rosie’ chidren with ex, Kelli Carpenter on the other hand, are excited about the news of their ……mom’s new found love.

Top Gun 2 in the works?

If there was one 80’s movie that had women sweating in their seats and men grinding their teeth with envy, Top Gun would take that cake and bring it home.  Although it almost seemed to be a chic flick with all the cute and buff fly boys, Top Gun had Tom Cruise soaring his way to stardom  and became one of Hollywood’s most coveted dream boy.

Tom has since evolved in many facets of his career as an actor and has proven himself well with many successful projects and a franchise contract for Mission Impossible.  He may have aged and gone a little cuckoo over love and his new age theories, but the man certainly still packs a big punch with his acting and definitely can still make all you ladies swoon as he takes on a more mature action star profile.

At the moment, the 49 yr. old actor has been busy promoting his 4th MI stint, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and , there is not a doubt in our minds it’s going to rake in some good rates and dollars. As much as MI has been an awesome action ride, we’re ready for some Tom Cruise eye candy and undeniably looking forward to a Top Gun sequel.

Talks of Top Gun 2 has been tickling the wires since last year after Director Tony Scott nods his head for another go with Tom Cruise. This comes as ideas for the sequel have been tossed onto the table and finding Tom Cruise quite agreeable to working on it. So then, we’re looking at those sexy aviator glasses and  sure enough it’s going to be on a lot of Christmas wish lists this year.

Anne Hathaway Flashes Her New Bauble

What else could be sweeter than a Christmas bling to go with Christmas cheer? Anne Hathaway is certainly basking in all this,  as she gets to dazzle paparazzi attention  with the unmistakable bauble on her finger.

Having totally confirmed her engagement to  fiancé Adam Shulman, the 29 year old actress  showed off her man and her bling while taking a romantic afternoon stroll at the park along with their chocolate lab doggy just this weekend.

The couple seemed to enjoy just whiling away the day locked in each other’s arms and lips and seemingly careless of the cameras clicking from a distance.

A girl can only be so lucky when her fiancé just happens to be a jewelry designer/actor as this only reassures her of some serious bling soon as the question gets popped. And sure enough, Adam Shulman had nothing but the best in his mind for this rather fitting occasion. He worked hand in hand with Kwiat Heritage Jewels to have Anne’s ring entirely custom made with a mouth dropping  6.1 carat diamond set in platinum and approximately rings the cash register at $ 150,000.00.

All seems rosy at this time for the couple, who began dating back in 2008. Anne admits that her current romance is a wee bit more on the mellow side but admits this makes for a rather good life than it is a juicy story to write about.

Christian Bale Ends His Batman Reign

Christian Bale has taken his Bat Suit to the cleaners and stuffed it into the Bat Storage unit. Certainly one of Gotham’s sexiest to play Bruce Wayne, this caped crusader has decided to hang up his role as Batman.

Starting off his film resume’  with a rather odd selection of blockbuster movies , playing the role of Batman sent his career to a whirlwind of Hollywood stardom. To date, Bale has made three franchise Batman films with Director Christopher Nolan since 2005. “Batman Begins” earned him great reviews with the movie raking in at least $1 billion dollars in the box office.  Even as we sadly lost Heath Ledger in the midst of filming “ Dark Knight “, the late young actor is surely smiling down the heavens for Bale’s Oscar trophy  on this go around. “ The Dark Knight Rises “ set to premiere in July 2012, will see Christian Bale’s last  Batman run, as he clips his batwings and leaves Gotham flashing the bat signal for the next sexy Hollywood Bruce Wayne to fit in them Batty Tighties!

In search of a new adventure ,  armed with an Oscar to go with a wide range of acting skills,   and  some darn drool-worthy good looks –  we doubt Christian Bale would need any bat tricks and bat gadgets to get him soaring in his path to find his permanent seat among the galaxy of Hollywood stars.

Celebrity spotting can be one of the trickiest things to do. This is probably the reason why the paparazzi goes on a frenzy trying to get that ultimate million dollar photo that can make or break any of Hollywood’s glittering roster of celebrities.

It would take a trained eye to spot any of these celebrities , let alone go on a full-on stalk mode especially when they have all the incognito tricks under their sleeves .Learning the art of disguise and blending in to evade the peering eyes of the public and the scrutinizing lenses of the media, has taught many celebs  countless ways to go out and just be themselves.

The hoodie, the baseball cap and bug eye sunglasses, floppy hats and even more over the top was Michael Jackson’s mummified get up.  Can’t really blame them for their  futile attempts on disguise, as they don’t always have their best faces on.

Glossy magazine covers can be very misleading, thanks to the wonders of airbrush and photoshop.  You’d be surprised how your favourite pin up celebrity gals look sans the magic touch of a make-up artist and a hairstylist.  Make-up may just as well be  a science than  art, when you see the big difference  of a dolled up face ready for the camera lens, and your celebrity diva in sweat pants , bare faced  and in a mussed up ponytail .

Can you guess who these bare-faced women are?

You gotta hand it to the press  cameras to catch all the ugly angles of celebrities and conjure major rumors based on mere bad photo ops. This time around, Katy Perry gets to loop herself into a web of pregnancy talk due to a slight bulge on her belly.

The 27 yr old singer made it very clear that she and husband comedian Russell  Brand have no immediate plans of having a baby. Not now…..and may hold off on it for a lot longer.

You would wonder what makes women these days obsess over weight and dress sizes. An ill fitting dress will find the media cutting up a clueless celebrity from having an eating disorder to bad taste  and of course that favourite gossiping gasp of pregnancy.

Sadly enough, Katy had to admit that she was enjoying one too many heists with New York’s finest gastronomic experiences and hence, her body of proof came in the form of a bloated belly  bulge.  Obviously, this only means there shall be no bloating allowed in Hollywood!  All you shrinks out there can just capitalize on the media that feeds so much pressure on celebrities’ minds  about enjoying cheeseburgers and pizza.

As it is, Christina Aguilera also got slammed for an ill fitting dress she  wore for the American Music Awards.  Hopefully, not every celebrity gets pregnancy write up each time they decide to binge and bloat themselves to media destruction.

Rather funny how the world of romance and relationships have changed over the years. The sexual revolution has set so many souls free and at the same time has reversed and flipped  the way we all viewed life and love for many centuries. Who says only men can have all the fun  with women half their age? Why do many frown on women getting involved with a much younger man? Who dictates that norm anyways? Let’s say a woman in her 40’s suddenly becomes single and available after a 10 year marriage ends in divorce.  They say all the good men are taken. Hence, this leaves her with slim pickins of single men in her age bracket. These men be the ones who are either too involved with work and have sworn themselves into bachelorhood, or have gone totally ape chasing around women half their age and  half their waistlines. Who then makes it to her list of eligibles?

And oh,the labels we’ve been living with  That distinguished man in his 50’s dating a girl in her 20’s is reduced to a dirty old man and a foxy woman in her 40’s dating a 20 something man becomes a raging cougar preying on fresh meat. Fortunately, Hollywood always  has something  to inspire us. This reality bite on the battle of the dating sexes has seen many celebrity cougars on the prowl for  a great catch.  Whether they end up with a keeper or just a sleeper, these Hollywood women sure have their game on and some pretty hot boy toy trophies.

Mariah Carey  — rawrrz for this mamita for keeping her boy toy Nick Canon in tow despite their 10 year age difference.

Kylie Minogue –  a breast cancer survivor, this diva from down under seems to have found her second wind and some good love with her Spanish beau Andres Velencoso  who is 11 yrs younger .

Nothing seems to stop the pressure to be skinny for one to look good  these days. Good ole tinsel town has seen one too many transformations of celebrities that have  gone from luscious beauties to just pieces of muscle, skin and bones wrapped in designer clothing.

And although we’re all gung ho about looking healthy, it just leads you to question what does looking beautiful and healthy really mean  for these Hollywood celebrities.  Does it mean weighing less than 100lbs? Or wearing a size 0? Or getting all those muscles to show on camera?

True enough we’ve seen a lot of these Hollywood women morphing into svelte figures  over the years and as short as a month they can just turn into a stick figure with little lady lumps and bumps. Whether roles have forced them to  take that extra effort to lose weight or  just plain glamour pressure that can be unforgiving for any  celebrity whose every bulge and curve gets scrutinized by the public eye.

Well, these women can be real inspirations for us average beings . Knowing that we can transform ourselves into almost any shape and take on a whole new life sans the excess baggage. Then again, not everyone can afford personal trainers, fancy diet food or get into weight loss boot camps. But, we still get to live through our fave celebrities who are just as vulnerable to binging and  excess adipose tissue.

Here are some Hollywood Weightloss Wonders :

Renee’ Zellweger –  Just amazing how this woman was able to yoyo diet to epitomize the characters she played in her much raved about movies.

Carnie Wilson – Nothing but pure admiration for her courageous decision to undergo gastric bypass after years of just embracing who she is and her many great talents.

Kirstie Alley – now who didn’t just have big love for this woman? Having a gorgeous face and a quirky personality was all she needed that made her  a big beautiful woman, that had everyone watch her awesome transformation.

Mariah Carey – post baby bumps and lumps didn’t slow down this diva to get back into top performance shape. However much she admitted to having “some issues” , she certainly  pulled through looking like a very hot momma!

Nicole Richie – watching Nicole seriously drop some poundage left many people in shock as she became disturbingly waif.  Although she’s now looking much more in normal range of body mass, we all guess momma-hood has brought out the best in her.

Lindsay Lohan – we’ve seen her during her peachy teenage years and having blossomed into a troubled young woman, it’s not surprising that she would go through some weight issues as well.  Her nearly stick figure was due to  a habit of not eating at all.

 

Courtney Love – her Celebrity Skin days have long passed and all that’s left is indeed, some celebrity skin on her abdominal area. We don’t really know how she lost weight, but we’ve got a lot of raised eyebrows as to the type of regimen she had subjected herself to lose so much weight.

Turning 49 yrs old may yet be a milestone for Demi Moore who has managed to shed even more weight now tips at 98 pounds before her birthday. 98 pounds – my, with the way she looks in her recent photos, she’s  probably a mere 80 pounds. Half of which comes from her hair.
After alleged rumours of husband Ashton Kutcher’s affair with 23 yr old Sara Leal , word spread like crazy bush fire of an impending divorce. However, the couple remained on a steady course of working out their issues and moving on with their normal life.
Noticeable though, is Demi’s rather alarming rate of weight loss. Understandable that she may be going through a rough time and stressing out over marital issues. But could it be that she’s trying to lose the weight to kind of keep up with the body of a possible 23 year old mistress?

Either way, her rapid loss of weight is almost too painful to look at now as her husband might not have enough to hold on to. You gotta eat sometimes, you now!Either that or she’s hittin’ up a much younger guy to show for what she can still bag at 49! There have been talks that the actress is seeing Ashton Kutcher’s younger actor friend Ben Hollingsworth. Although none of this could be confirmed or denied … such smoke can only come from a big boiling pot of juice!

Dakota Fanning  seriously epitomizes the latest perfume launch from Marc Jacobs, he calls “Oh, Lola!” The 17 year old actress happily agreed to be the face of  the advertising campaign. Self confessing how she runs to the store to buy the latest fragrances of Marc Jacobs, Dakota expressed how humbled she was with the offer to be the face everyone would relate to Oh, Lola.

Unfortunately, not everyone seems to accept that this girl has indeed grown up. The said ads for Oh Lola! is too provocative for the Advertising Standards Authority in England and has banned  the Lola ads in all of Britannia.  According to ASA, it is too sexually suggestive and can be taken as putting too much  of the idea of sex in the face of a child.

   The photos show the almost adult child actress in a sheer flesh- colored dress with hints of lace holding bottles of the perfume and another shot with an oversized bottle resting on her lap.

Come on, now …  I’ve held  and worked mixing bowls filled with dense chocolate batter  in between my legs and that would never be taken as sexually suggestive if you ever saw that picture of me!  The ASA says, however much they knew  that Dakota is 17 years old, the length of her dress, the position of her legs and the bottle of perfume draws in  too much sexuality . They also say the actress looks much to be under the age of 16. Well , bless this girl for having that woman child look to her .. as it is, doesn’t Lola take from the name or term Lolita? And  I bet my frustrated Lolita pseudo self , that if these peeps running the show at the ASA ever saw Dakota’s movie, The Runaways … they would definitely need to get their minds out of that gutter.

When does one’s glitter start to fade in tinsel town?  The women of Hollywood have their own fair share of sizzling hot diva’s in their 50’s after a few trips to their friendly neighbourhood cosmetic surgeons and aestheticians.  How do our fave  hunky  old timers   keep up with the much younger breed of Hollywood meat?  The fortunate fact that salt and pepper hair on a 50 something man can be disarming compared to that of a woman in her 40’s with grey streaks. Or  a bald shaven head with  a greying goatee can still take your breath away  than that of a middle aged woman with saggy arms and pair of fake jugs.

Hollywood still has a few good ravishing men in their 50’s. No one would even dare question them about getting a nip and a tuck and a few pricks and tugs as much as women get scrutinized with their upgrades..  The salt and pepper hair and the facial creases lends them a distinguished air any woman half their age could fall for.

Let’s see which one of these 7 Hollywood men  over 50 could still make your drool.

Pierce Brosnan, 53

Chris Noth, 56

Richard Gere, 63

                                                                                                          Denzel Washington, 56
