In May of 2007, Christina Ricci announced to Tatler magazine, "I just want to be married, or just engaged…"Basically, I just want a ring. And the tax break." Less than two years later, she seems to be getting her wish.
Ricci, who appears in the upcoming romance film New York, I Love You, is set to marry native New Yorker Owen Benjamin. The 6’6 actor/comedian stars alongside 5’1 Ricci in this year’s All’s Faire in Love. The couple met on the set and has only been dating publicly since this past October.
While Ricci, 29, has been acting in blockbuster films since the age of ten, Benjamin is just getting his feet wet. He had a bit part in “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry,” which led to a larger role in “House Bunny.”
At this point, no wedding plans have been made.
Although nobody ever suggested the three Kardashians would be appearing in Playboy together, Kim took to her blog to address (and encourage) the “rumors.” Only surprise is that she forgot to include Mom in her fantasy photo shoot.
“We would be flattered, [but] no one has even asked us… We would be the brunette version of The Girls Next Door!” said Kim. She accompanied the post with a picture of her December 2007 Playboy cover and signed the note, “Love ya Hef!”
As one reader commented below her post, “Where do you hear your rumors from? I never hear about them ‘til I come to your page.”
The current issue of Us Weekly reports that country star LeAnn Rimes has been caught having an affair with her Lifetime TV-movie costar Eddie Cibrian. The magazine features pictures of footage taken from a security camera at a Laguna Beach restaurant in which the two are seen holding hands and kissing. LeAnn’s been married to her former backup dancer, Dean Sheremet, since she was a teenager. Cibrian’s been married to model Brandi Glanville since 2001 and the couple has two young children.
The statements are in—and we’re confused.
Cibrian strongly denied the affair, telling Access Hollywood: “Other than being friends and two actors who were romantically intertwined in a movie-for-television we filmed last fall, there is no truth to the reporting initiated by Us Magazine. It is a fabricated story that is using random snapshots as connective tissue to create a scandalous relationship.”
It seems that LC isn’t the only Hills star to be moving on from her fame platform. Audrina Patridge has announced that she has signed with Mark Burnett Productions for a new reality show with her as the focus. FINALLY: is what we all know she’s thinking.
Burnett has said that, "We are truly pleased to have the chance to work with Audrina. She has already proved her star quality, and we can't wait to show her fans worldwide the next stage of her life and career."
Excited? Well the show has yet to be picked up and will be pitched to networks as of next week. It’s only logical that the brunette of the crew would end up with an MTV spinoff; but with The City already in rotation, we’re not so sure we’d care for another. With so many memorable cast mates leaving the set, will it survive?

Now we know why she did Dancing With The Stars, the girl needs to get paid!
Americas Next Top Model hosted by model Tyra Banks, held casting calls at the Central Park Hotel here in Manhattan where things got a little out of hand. Well actually, really out of hand. Three people were arrested for disorderly conduct and six others were hurt in the stampede that broke out after a car backfired and someone yelled bomb. The police then shut down the auditions because it was poorly organized.
The CW Network that broadcast the show commented that it was “working and cooperating with local authorities.” Reps for Tyra Banks have yet to comment on the situation.
According to TMZ, cosmetic company Revlon has introduced a poll trying to find out if Rihanna is still considered a good role model after the incident with Chris Brown last month. Apparently Revlon hired polling company Harris Interactive to carry out a poll about rival company Cover Girl. The poll features a Covergirl mascara add then asks people if they know who is in the ad, what they have heard lately about the person and, if they feel she is an appropriate role model, all without mentioning Rihannas name.
The blogsite confirmed with Harris Interactive that the poll is a "proprietary study by Revlon"
Howard K. Stern, former lover and lawyer of the late Anna Nicole Smith, has been charged alongside Drs. Sandeep Kapoor and Khristine Eroshevich in connection behind her untimely death. All three have been hit with eight felonies for conspiring to supply controlled substances to the former Playmate. As reported by TMZ, the two doctors involved were charged with "prescribing, administering or dispensing a controlled substance to an addict."
Jerry Brown, Attorney General of California, has named Stern as the “principle enabler”. In regards to the case, he then also went on to say “We're not talking a few dozen, we're talking hundreds and hundreds of pills. The law's been violated, it's a conspiracy, this is bad business."
Recommended bail is $20,000 for each defendant.
The late Anna Nicole was best known for her crazy reality TV Show, being a spokeswoman for the dietary aid TrimSpa as well as a former Playboy Playmate.
When you’re a successful celebrity, you have everything for the taking. When you’re Lindsay Lohan, you just take stuff. Recently, Lindsay Lohan settled a law suit with Masha Markova over her stolen coat. In January of last year, LiLo was accused of permanently borrowing the fur coat worth over $11,000 from the student while partying at 1Oak. The reason the student found out? Lindsay was spotted and photographed actually wearing the coat as if it were hers. Bold, indeed.
In a previous interview with The Post, Masha stated while flipping through OK! Magazine, she “Was actually talking on the phone to my grandmother about something else, and then I flipped through the magazine, saw the picture said, 'I need to call you back”. She then went on to say, "It was my coat. It was no doubt!"
With all of her money, you would think Lindsay could have avoided this trouble and just bought her own.
In lieu of trying to save their careers and deceive the media that their relationship is normal, “Chri-Hanna”, the young couple comprised of Chris Brown and Rihanna, are slated to make a duet. The song, which was described as “sweet and sentimental” to People magazine by an unnamed source, supposedly "expresses the challenges of a love relationship." Last time I checked, being in a ‘love relationship’ didn’t include getting beat by your lover. I guess times have changed.
Anyway, since Rihanna got her a** kicked by Brown, many talk shows including Tyra Banks, Oprah and even 106 and Park have had specials on dating violence in light of the incident. All hosts encourage fans to send their love to both singers in their time of need as well as heighten awareness about dating violence in general.
