Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen did Kate's second look as well. Stunning! Have fun at the party.
Media news update: Meredith Viera is leaving The Today Show in June and will be replaced by Ann Curry. Natalie Morales will be moved into Ann's former postition permanently. I like Natalie a lot...and Ann is fine I suppose. I was trying to catch all the major networks during the wedding this morning and I thought The Today Show's coverage was the best. Katie Couric was awful...did anyone else watch her? It was as if she was heckling the royals? It was weird. Anyway, good for Meredith. Her husband suffers from Multiple Sclerosis and she has often talked openly about her desire to spend more time with him and her children.

The eight-episode half-hour series goes inside the ten-year marriage of rapper/actor/author Ice-T and his fitness/swimsuit model wife Coco as they balance their careers and marriage. Coco is allowed on TV?!!! How can that be? Does the FCC know about this?! There is sure to be a nip slip or 7. Just sayn. I mean, it took me a good 5 minutes to find a decent photo of the racy pair.
How many more shows can I watch?

Five current series on The CW Network received early renewals and will be back starting fall 2011:

• Gossip Girl and 90210 were also renewed and will return along with the seventh season of Supernatural. I'm going to start watching GG soon. So, you'll have to bear with me as I experience season 6 from the beginning. I can't wait. It's like every holiday wrapped into one for me. I totally watch 90210 too ya'll. Love those skinny little tramps.

Brandi - First wife. Leann - Second wife. I see a trend. Plus, Brandi hangs out with Lisa Vanderpump's former, permanent houseguest Cedric. Ew. So, that's already about 100 strikes against her. I don't know, something about these pics and the situation just make me really sad. I should get a life.

First of all, Jay Leno BUMPED Kristin Chenoweth to have LiLo on his show. Then, Lindsay comes on and talks about how sorry she is and how she can't BELIEVE she got jail time and community service...and Jay Leno kisses her a*s the whole time. Give me a break! She's like this because people treat her like she can do no wrong. (Well, and the fact that Dina and Michael are her parents) And, exactly, what IS SHE DOING? Besides making JLO demands and getting kicked off movie projects? I don't know either. What I do know is that apparently the audience gave her a standing ovation when she left Jay last night. Excuse me?! For what?! Where is my mother?! That's what Lindsay needs...my mother for a month. She'll be reformed after that. Please. I'm over it. Come back and apologize when your meth teeth go away. I will stop now.

Lookin good Natalie. Prego and in tennies, my kind of girl. I mean, I haven't been prego, but, my super fabulous girlfriends wore Jimmy Choo's and skinny jeans while pregnant. Don't worry, I balance out our friendships by being sure when I'm pregnant I'll rock the tennis shoes and stretch pants. Holler.

Everyone is gossiping about wether or not Paula Abdul will join Simon for X-Factor- with already confirmed judge L.A. Reid. All sorts of people are being thrown around as options: Nicole Scherzinger, Nicki Minaj, George Michael (love that idea)..but the most popular to goss about is Paula Abdul! Of course, my love of zany Paula misses her so and would actually watch X-Factor if she did make an appearance or 30. I love her weird claps and constant confusion. Sign her up Simon!

Lee and I went to see Water For Elephants last night. It was fine. Here's the thing, the screenwriter did brilliantly preserve the books magic by not straying to far from Sara Gruen's storyline and imagery. I enjoyed the characters coming to life, the charm and intrigue of the circus back in the day, and the costume designer's choices. Christopher Waltz was amazing as August, the ringleader of the Benzini Brothers Circus. (He plays a hybrid of August and Uncle Al) On the other end of the Big Top, Reese Witherspoon as Marlana, left me wanting more, lots more. (Although she looked fierce) I couldn't figure out if it was because she was acting next to Christopher Waltz or if there was SO LITTLE chemistry between her and Robert Pattinson it just fell flat. Even the 'love' scene seemed un-sexy. And, for a girl who hasn't watched Twilight I get the RP appeal now. Whew. The elephant Rosie was majestic and stole the show, literally. The filmmakers assured audiences that all the animal abuse during the film was actually done on a CG screen and absolutely no animals were harmed. That is hard to watch but pertinent to the story. Would I recommend Water For Elephants? Yes. Ultimately, it's a solid love story...just wish it'd been a little bit more sexy. The only thing sexy was the 170 oz. tub of popcorn we ate...oh yeah.

First, I love the name Pippa. If I thought I could talk Lee into naming our unborn daughter Pippa, I would. But, he doesn't like any of my names, so, I digress. For the record, I am not prego, so, just saying in the event I'd be blessed with a daughter someday, I'd like the name Pippa...sorry, tangent. Oh, and she is Kate Middleton's sister. Anywho, Pippa (how many time can I say Pippa?!) hit the town in London last night to celebrate the engagement of her friends Holly Branson and Fred Andrews at the Kensington Roof Gardens. Holly's papa is Richard Branson, billionaire adventure crazy man who owns VIRGIN airlines, records, among many other things. Mazel.

I'm really loving Gwyneth in GLEE as of late. So many of you don't, how come? It seems that she's moving on, bummer. I hope she comes back and tells Will she loves him, er something. And I hear she'll be back in the fall. I liked the two of them together. Anyway, dying for her yellow dress at a signing of her cookbook, My Father's Daughter in Beverly Hills yesterday.

I've been agonizing over finding a moving company. Oh, I'm moving across the country again in case I didn't tell ya. Then I realized I have all these friends on here and should just ask...so, have you moved long distance? Do you reccommend a mover? I've always moved myself, so, haven't had the full on moving experience. Any help or tips would be MUCH much much appreciated. Thanks.

Yesterday Oprah talked to director Tom Shadyac about moving from his multi-million dollar mansion in Pasadena to a mobile home and the importance of living an authentic life. By the way, Tom's mobile home is on a pricey lot in Malibu...on the ocean. Just sayin. Anyway, the message got lost a little on me (and girlfriend Lindsay who sent this pic) because of Miss O's hair?!! What was up with that?! It was Rosie O with a ponytail circa 2005. From the front looked like a bowl cut my prom date also sported...circa 1998.
Not cute O.

I had to re-read the headline on POPEATER about 60 times before I realized it was real. Simon van Kempen has gleefully unleashed his debut single, 'I Am Real,' a bass-thumping, synth-heavy dance track filled with defiant lyrics aimed at "cheeky tongue waggers." Uh, okay Simon. Released a single, ey? Interesting. I don't want to listen to it yet because I'm sure him and his gorgeous, uh, wife will be popping up on Watch What Happens and I want to see it LIVE. Or do I? Yes, I do I think...
Last Sunday, Mob Wives debuted on VH1 at 8p and attracted 1.4 million total viewers and delivered a 0.9 rating among A18-49 and an average 1.5 rating with W18-34.

There was all this recent chatter of how Lindsay Lohan had to play Victoria Gotti in an upcoming film. Who knows? What I do know is that it's obvious Lindsay is NOT sober. Did she even notice her outfit? And, when your hair matches a Gotti, it's not a good thing.
