To you too, Jakey poo.
Bravo has ordered new seasons of Bethenny Ever After (super!), Tabatha's Salon Takeover (love it!), Top Chef Just Desserts (yay! Gail!), The Real Housewives of Atlanta (blonk!) and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (best ever!). Plus, which Project Runway and Rachel Zoe Project personalities just got spinoffs? Project Runway drag-queen-dress designer Chris March is getting his own show, called Mad Fashion, remember him? A large funny dude with lotsa attitude, hilarious, and sweet. Nice combo. The other star getting his own show is Rachel Zoe's former assistant Brad Goreski, soon to be the lead of It's a Brad Brad World. Not sure how I feel...I loved him WITH Rachel, but, on his own? Not sure. I do welcome more bowties and leather jackets though. Here are some more NEW BRAVO SHOWS: Miss Advised is about three single relationship experts having to sometimes take their own medicine; The Therapists is about shrinks having to sometimes have to take their own medicine; and Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis is about remodeling your house and your state of mind simultaneously. Huh. Not sure. I'll have to judge after one or two episodes. The thing about BRAVO shows is the people they surround themselves with (the "stars") are more interesting than they are most of the time! If it weren't for the best buddies, the housekeepers, the nannies, and a few gay hairdressers and stylists, the shows MIGHT not work! Who knows? I'm sure I'll watch every single crap show they put on that network, it doesn't matter. I'm sick.

I like some Rob Lowe. Love, even. Saw a crazy movie at Sundance with him in it this year and he convincingly plays a crazy drug addled suicidal dude, which, is more impressive since he's sober now. I love him on Parks & Rec, which, you need to watch if you aren't. It's hilarious. Anyway, he has written an autobiography called Stories I Only Tell My Friends, which isn't really very juicy, but, nonetheless he shares fun celebrity-filled stories.
There is chatter that "Mad Men" will not be renewed for Season 5. Come again?! Well, of course, the root of a deal not being reached between show creator Matt Weiner and AMC is money.
The Daily reports it has nothing to do with Weiner's contract; the two sides were close to agreeing on a two year, $30 million deal for the mind behind the acclaimed period drama. But other area's need to be better budgeted...there is also talk of two undisclosed actors being 'let go' to cut costs. Weiner said, "It would be heartbreaking for me if they don't work it out, horrifying really. It would be a shame for fans to never get to see what great stuff we have planned for Don and company." Yeah! What stuff?! Come on! Don't can Mad Men, please. There are things I must know about Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Price...and Joan.

Uh, you forgot the rest of your pants Rihanna. Here's the April cover of Rolling Stone. There are two different covers, so, beware! I hate when I'm traveling and I buy ELLE 6 different times because they put different people on the cover. I get to page 60 and realize...hey...I've already this! 5 other times.

Page Six is reporting that BRAVO execs are laughing at the networks new ad campaign. Why? Because it's all about Andy Cohen people! New York buses, phone booths (they still have those??) and taxis are going to be splashed with the perma-tanned face of...Andy Cohen! A la Carrie Bradshaw in a see-thru pink dress. Well, not really. Someone who works for Andy told Page 6, "It's all about Andy Cohen. Even though Season 4 of 'Real Housewives of New York' is about to start on April 7, the ads to promote Cohen's show, 'Watch What Happens Live,' are all over town." Ha. Well, I guess he can do what he wants, right?! I actually really like Watch What Happens because it's just that, you never know what's going to happen and Andy has a way of making fun of some of the housewives without them realizing it. That's my favorite part. I know, I'm not proud of my behavior either.

Wow. I'm so shocked. Why is everyone SO SURPRISED that Crystal Harris, Hugh Hefner's soon to be wifey is possibly 'hooking up' with a man 60 years Hef's junior? Huh. Wonder why she would do that? The rumor is she has been seen nibbling on the ear of Dr Phil's son, Jordan. (or vice versa, whatever) Who knows? Now you two kiddos listen up and listen good okay...don't get married if you're not in love and you don't think it will last. That's just wrong. About 5 different ways actually.

I know when Jessica Simpson wore her high-waisted jeans (with the leopard belt and big hair) it was a fashion no-no heard round the world, but, Amy Adams pulls off the look quite nicely. I like it. And, I might get some. I think they can look really polished and sleek if worn right, so, here's to high-waisted jeans. This is exciting.

I like Reese Witherspoon, sorta. She's cute, has great clothes, kissed a chick in Cruel Intentions and sang as June Carter Cash to perfection. However, I think it's no coincidence that she's photographed EVERYWHERE. Interesting, no? Why does she need SO MUCH attention? She turned 35 Tuesday and rumor is that she's getting married this weekend. Congrats lady. I'm super excited to see Water For Elephants too.
I'm experiencing some sort of blog malfunction. I can't post pics. I think the picture of Elizabeth Taylor I was trying to post was so gorgeous it broke my computer. Could be. Huh. I'd like to bid a proper goodbye to her, so, until the pictures, I'll just wait.

Steve Carell is leaving "The Office" after seven seasons with four episodes remaining in the current season. Entertainment Weekly reports that the show will get special guest star visits from Will Arnett and series creator, Rick Gervais. The show has also booked Will Ferrell for the last four episodes of the season, as well. Carell's final episode airs April 28th; the season finale comes on May 29th. Can The Office make it without THE Michael Scott? Time will tell, what do you think?

Yesterday I read an article in the Huffington Post were Bruce Vilanch (who wrote 'jokes' for the Oscars) was saying that James Franco was NOT stoned during his hosting duties but he didn't do a very good job. Because he was busy. I read it and didn't think much of it. Apparently it pissed Mr. Franco off and he tweeted this pic last night with "Bruce let me down." Well, James, I like you but you didn't do an amazing job and everyone saw that...I didn't see anything wrong with what Bruce was saying. Who cares? It is what it was and it wasn't that bad. Let's move on, shall we?

Rumor has it that CBS is in negotiations with Charlie Sheen (more like his team) to re-hire him for 2 1/2 Men. The popularity of his 'comedy tour' has led producer Chuck Lorre and CBS head honcho Les Moonves to reconsider their position on this whole, well, debacle. I'm not sure what's going on with Charlie, but, in a sick way, I do find it interesting and wildly entertaining that he just started calling out everyone and anyone. I think a lot of celebrities are crazy, have moments, but WE NEVER see it. Charlie has always been who he is. No apologies. That being said, he's still a complete moron, idiot who treats women as second-class citizens, so, for that, I can't stand, even loathe him. But, the troll-calling, slogan spitting Sheen is quite something, isn't he? I wonder how this'll all end.
Posted by Lu at 4:08 PM
Huh. Lotsa interesting stuff here. I wonder what kind of deal the Kardashian's have with OK! magazine? They are on it once a month! Side note: I think Reese is getting married this weekend. And the countdown is on...how much longer will Brad and Emily last? I don't know why, but, I really want them to make it work for some reason. No logic, just want them to.

In the name of Little League. Brit and KFed (nice sweat pants K, I don't judge the public sweatsuit...I'm just jealous) watch their son Sean play t-ball while Chris and Kate watch Ryder play. Other woman (+child) in picture is Chris's new wife and their little girl Cheyenne.
Katie and her design partner Jeanne Yang previewed their Fall 2011 Holmes & Yang collection at Barneys in Beverly Hills on Saturday. They teamed up with Valextra (which sounds like herpes medicaton, but, whatever) for a bag line which is a first for the designing duo. I do love that bag. Give it here Katie.
Ain't too shabby. Nice work E. The two-story home boasts over 17,000 square feet, eight bathrooms and 4,700 square foot basement. That's super sweet but does your pad have a hidden ironing board that also doubles as a pantry door? Probably not. That's what I thought. Her new place is 10 miles from Tigers home in North Palm Beach.

No! I won't hear of it STAR Magazine. Please, say it ain't so. Rumor is that Kate Winslet has had a few secret hookups with John Mayer. Gross. No, Kate, no. What would that old lady with big blue diamond say if she knew that? Well, she wouldn't be happy. Don't do it. Literally. Bleh. Upsetting.

What has Sienna Miller done lately? I'm confused. I mean, she got back together with Jude Law...and then broke up with Jude Law, but, what else? I think she was here during Sundance so I'm sure she has a movie coming out, but, huh. Well, she has enough monies to own that sweet chic Prada bag. Give it to me, thanks.

No one hates it more than me when tabloids talk about celebs/people/humans weight. I hate it. I actually talked about it on my segment this week because of the Brits refering to Kate Middleton as "weighty katey." RUDE. But, there has been much chatter about LeAnn Rimes lately. What do you think? Too skinny? I realize this makes me no better than a tabloid. I just thought she looked SO GOOD for a brief minute and then she got a little too thin maybe? Who knows. She says it's pictures taken from the wrong angle's. Okay, sure.

Howard Stern in on the cover of Rolling Stone this month. It's a pretty good interview because he talks about sex and being full of himself. He had this to say about his wifey Beth:
"In many ways, my marriage now is so easy, but I'm also aware that I could f&*! things up very easily. I could start getting more into my work, and ignoring what's important to Beth. I'm awfully narcissistic, and I have to keep that in check. I can't be like King Tut sitting there and expect to be taken care of, because so many times we can turn our wives into mothers."

Ha. Ha. What?! A royal wedding commemorative cup is being hawked by a company called Guandong to celebrate the April 29 nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Kate, smiling and gorgeous is next to...Prince Harry...ha! What?! Might need to re-print those mugs. I mean, he'll be there I guess..
