James Blunt sings his "You're beautiful" song pretty well, but not as good as this.

This kid blows him out of the water! I can so see my Godphew Nicolas busting out some John Mayer when he's about 6 years old.

Save your tootsies

Band-Aid Activ-Flex Blister Block Stick, $7, is the latest and greatest invention for blister prevention! It's the end all be all excuse for buying ridiculously expensive and uncomfortable shoes.

This also happens to be great for your wedding day, because let's face it: you can't really break in your wedding shoes without running the risk of getting them dirty!

This new product is an invisible shield that you swipe over the areas on your feet where you would normally get a blister. It actually looks kinda like a deodorant stick.

It coats and protects the skin from being rubbed raw by the friction of your shoe. And, because it's invisible, it's safe to wear with open toe shoes and it isn't messy so it won't damage your shoes.


He's got something to say

A message from John Mayer:


(Preface: Don't get turned off from reading this by any pre-conceived notions you have about the subject matter. I'll make you a deal. When something I write turns you off, then you can click the "x" button and go about your day.)

A year ago this month I wrote a song called "Waiting on the World to Change", in which I tried to express the feelings of helplessness that come with knowing what needs to change in the world but also knowing the futility of trying.

Since that song has been released, there has been one social issue I've kept particularly focused on, silently keeping notes in my mind about what needs to be fixed (and more constructively, how to go about fixing it) while hoping that someone else sharing my exact views would carry out the work without my ever getting involved.

Hey, I'm just being honest.

I'm talking about (see preface!) global warming. Wait! Don't move the mouse. Finger down. Please. Just give me a second. You can watch that video of a cat playing the piano in a few minutes. I just may surprise you with what I'm going to say.

In the "degree of difficulty" column, reversing the effects of global warming is a .5 out of a possible 10, at least in theory. You just get back by reversing the way you came. No accounting for a volatile political world stage, or clashing of belief structures. Just throw this bitch in reverse and we're home.

The trouble is, nobody has managed to come close to bringing this issue to you in a way that doesn't turn you off. At best, it's a bore, and at worst (toilet paper square accounting?) it's insulting to human autonomy.

It seems to me that when it comes to this issue, we've been given only two sides to pick from: side one says the future of global warming does not present a doomsday scenario, almost chuckling the matter aside. Side two says it is a dire issue (which it is), and then goes on to inundate side one with so many separate nakedly-scientific points that they make naivete' seem cozy by comparison.

So here I am, introducing a third side. A laid-back, panic free approach to environmentalism. One that believes the message of "An Inconvenient Truth" is sound, but that it's an incredibly un-fun name for a movie. A side free from the cry of hypocrisy, for it doesn't make sweeping promises. A side that drives an SUV on the way to the grocery store but then produces nylon mesh bags at the checkout line. A side that believes in bringing a change of perspective to our government but letting Carl Rove finish his meal first.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Fans and Friends, I submit to you a third way: Light Green.
No thinking about "offsetting your carbon footprint". No rallies. No brow-beating people who think the Earth just has a fever. Pick one thing to change this year, and keep the rest of your life the same. After all, the only message the charts with escalating red lines are meant to send is that the red lines have to stop escalating, not that hey have to drop to the bottom of the graph by next Tuesday.

Part of the Light Green approach will be the (attempted) introduction of products that are cheap, easy alternatives to cut down on plastics. In the next 90 days I'm going to see how many of these products I can get produced. If it works, great. If not, you'll at least have blogs to read. I'm going to make this one of the focus points of my blog for the next few months., and hopefully by summer there will be a few items at the merchandise stands that you might not have a problem switching to.

And to anybody ready to cut me down for this, here's my full disclosure: I drive a Porsche SUV, I still drink lots of bottled water, and I will be flying private charter several times during my summer tour. However, my bus has been converted to Bio-Diesel, and I'll be coming up with even more ways to adapt to the Light Green mentality before I set out for the summer.

Now go watch that guy getting nailed in the balls on YouTube, but think about it. It's all you've got to do in order to go Light Green.

Out of my way

While most of us were settling down to watch Sopranos on Sunday night, Jesse James, motorcycle mega man and hubby to Sandra Bullock, was trying not to get killed.

No, he wasn't acting as stunt double. He was trying to avoid getting run over. Yes, that's right. Some crazy bitch that is obsessed with Bullock almost killed James during a bizaare and dangerous attack at their OC home.

TMZ have the details: Cops say that Bullock, along with James' 10-year-old child, looked on in horror as Marcia Valentine "attempted 3 or 4 times to run Jesse James over with her silver Mercedes."

Jesse was never struck by the car during the alleged incident. We're told Valentine also "laid in the driveway and wouldn't move."

Orange County Sheriffs were contacted and responded to the scene, but Valentine allegedly fled before they arrived.

After an intense manhunt, officers located Valentine early Monday morning and took her into custody. Valentine is being held on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

Wow, that's one crazy broad!

Fly on the wall

There was much more to last night’s blockbuster American Idol charity event than you saw at home. TV Guide was there to catch such untelevised moments as Simon’s late entrance, Chris’ tears (and tears), and Sanjaya’s inability to sit still.

Price of Admission: The place to be for free stuff was Idol’s home studio where, upon entering, audience members were handed white rubber “One” bracelets in honor of guest mentor Bono’s charity. And upon exiting at show’s end, they received snazzy multi-colored canvas bags, courtesy of Ikea. (The only freebie given out at Disney’s Concert Hall? Glow sticks for use during Il Divo’s performance.)

And while tickets to view the event at Idol’s home base were free—as they are all season-long—front-row attendees at Disney’s Concert Hall revealed they shelled out $1000 per ticket. Pricey, yes, but hey, it was for charity.

Fashionably Late: Just under ninety seconds before the show went live, Paula and Simon were nowhere to be found. Finally, at one minute before, Paula came running into the studio as fast as her sky-high platform heels would carry her. Seconds later, the lights went down and a page ushered in recent Idol castoff Sanjaya, along with his sister and mother.

As for Simon, he still hadn’t taken his seat when Ryan began his opening monologue. Maybe that’s why the usually unflappable host flubbed his lines and had to start again? (It's worth noting, though, that the flub was edited out of the West Coast feed.)

Kleenex Please!: As footage rolled of the trips taken by Ryan and the three judges to devastated areas in this country and abroad, Simon put a comforting arm around an overcome Paula. Of the white-suited Idols, the most emotional by far were Melinda and Chris, who teared up at least five different times — once during Josh Groban’s stirring rendition of “You Raise Me Up” — and went through several Kleenex.

At one point, the Justin Timberlake-esque singer left the stage, presumably to compose himself. When he returned, the other five Idols enveloped him in hugs.

Signs of the Times: If the number of audience members’ signs were any indication of who will win, Jordin and Blake have the edge. When Blake spotted an “I Brake for Blake” banner, he showed his appreciation by doing The Robot. Perhaps the strangest sign of the night was the one that read “Long Beach Misses Gina and Pickle!” Surely, the long-ago ousted rock chick and her good-luck-charm stuffed lizard would’ve been proud.

Don’t Cry-a for Sanjaya: The infamous former Idol was the social butterfly of the night. Clad in a dark blue suit, with his hair admirably tamed, Sanjaya spent the evening greeting his (mostly pre-teen) fans and even got up during one commercial break to go shake the hand of one young boy who’d yelled out his name.

During another break, he ventured to the judges’ table, where Simon announced, “Sanjaya is back in the house!” before shaking his hand. (He got hugs from Randy and Paula, who absent-mindedly pulled stray hairs off his lapel as they talked.)

During yet another break, the ex-Vote for the Worst poster boy went onstage to catch up with his future tour mates. He got the most effusive greeting from Phil, who picked the 17-year-old off his feet and swung him around in circles.

When Bill, the audience warm-up guy, asked Sanjaya about his future plans, he cryptically replied, “I can’t talk about it. You’re gonna have to watch TV and find out.” Maybe he booked a hair commercial?

Asked and Answered: During breaks, audience members were allowed to ask the judges questions. While one girl wanted to know where Simon gets his shirts (Armani), another asked why Paula wanted to be a judge. “I didn’t wanna be a judge,” she replied, before explaining that what interested her about Idol was the chance to be involved with talented people and nourish their dreams. Simon, naturally, rolled his eyes, prompting another attendee to ask him if people got mad at him on the street. The judge’s reply? “All I receive is love.” When the audience laughed en masse, he retorted, “What? It’s true.”

Also Spotted: Co-host for the night Ellen DeGeneres shaking her booty to the Idol theme... Blake laughing hysterically when Ben Stiller name-checked him... All three judges deciding Madonna’s taped appearance was the perfect time to take a break and duck out of the studio together... One side of the audience at Disney’s concert hall yelling, “We love you, Kelly!” when first Idol champ Clarkson took the stage, prompting the other side to scream, “We love you more!”

Interesting stuff. I think it would be so fun to go to a taping, but tickets are next to impossible to get.

Last nights episode was a gut wrencher man. I got teary more than once. Did you donate? If not, you still can. Go here and give what you can. Every penny makes a difference.

I don't know about you, but I almost passed out when I thought Jordin had been eliminated. Those sneaky bastards.

Puff Puff Busted

Sanjaya's mom, Jillian Blith and his sister Shyamali like to smoke the weed. Not only do they like to smoke it, but they also fancy themselves gardeners too.

Both of them were busted in February 2005 after cops found 310 marijuana plants and "smoking devices" in the family garage.

TMZ reports: "Shyamali, who was arrested for possession, directed the cops to another green-growing facility nearby, where they arrested Blith and her husband, Charles Quist (Sanjaya's stepdad).

Quist's mugshot, obtained by TMZ, bears a striking resemblance to Gary Sinise, a very blitzed Gary Sinise. (We're told there's a mugshot of Shyamali, but it can't be made public because she was only 17 at the time of the bust.)

Blith could've gone to jail for up to five years after pleading guilty to one felony count of unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance, but got off with a relatively mellow 30-day sentence."

Now I know where Sanjaya got the ideas for his multitude of hairstyles.

One too many

Why don't people realzie they can't drive after throwing back a couple of drinks? It especially bugs me when those people are celebs and can afford to have someone drive them around all night.

I guess this is a lesson that hip hop darling Eve is learning the hard way. She was arrested around 2:45 this morning on suspicion of driving under the influence.

What alerted the police? Um...maybe when she crashed her gold Maserati into a center divider on Hollywood Boulevard.

A weird sidebar to this story: Around 3am, Eve got a visit from Sean Penn of all people. According the Los Angeles police, he stayed for about an hour and wanted to see how she was doing.

Umm, ok.

Eve posted bail this morning and was released.

Come on Hollywood! Get a driver!

Verizon Wireless Ampitheater

Who's coming with me....

6 left, soon to be 5

This is when American Idol starts to get good. The contestants that didn't stand a chance in hell are gone and now it becomes a real competition.

Here is my prediction for tonight bottom three:
Phil is a weird one. I don't care for him much, and thought for sure he'd be gone by now. But he seems to be gaining gusto with this whole "country" angle. I think it's a smart move for him because those country fans out there don't have anyone to vote for. If he attaches himself to the genre, he will no doubt get all those votes. Plus, he actually sounds better when he sings with a twang. I stand by him being in the bottom three tonight, but I think he'll be the first to be sent back to the couch.

I love Kiki, but she seems like she has lost her sparkle. I don't want to see her go home, but the game is so tight now, it has to happen at some point. But I don't think it will happen today. It will be down to her and Chris, and she will look sad, thinking that it's the end of the road for her. But she will be saved. For now. Either way, she will do just fine. She will get plenty of offers from various record companies and a contract with Lane Bryant. Speaking of clothes, I loved the dress she wore last night. Hot!

And on to Chris. I was rooting for him, I really was. But then I kind of stopped. And I can tell you exactly when I checked out. It was when him and Simon got into a bit of a spat about the whole singing nasally and Chris got all smart mouth and said in a snarky tone "if I've been singing like that every week, it means I meant to do it." thanks. I was really digging him but nothing makes me lose interest faster than a guy who's full of himself. I predict Chris will be saying goodbye tonight.

To be honest, I think they all did pretty good last night, but someone has to go home.

This is a photo of Blake as a kid and now. Pretty much the same huh? Ok, I know I will be met with boo's after this comment, but I was left a little empty after Blake's performance. He was still good (duh!) and I know the beauty of "Imagine" is in its simplicity, but in this stage of the competition, I think he should have gone with something that had more ooomph and maybe showed more of his style. That being said, I still think he's safe this week.

Melinda knocked it out of the ballpark again. She's consistent, passionate and dead on week after week. She will without a doubt will have record companies clamouring for her. My only thing I'm left wondering is..who is she? What's her style? The contestants are pretty cut and dry at this point. Blake is pop, Chris is R&B, Phil is Country etc. But what is Melinda? I know she has a love of gospel, so does she want to go into that field? She can sing like a mo'fo, but I don't really know what she's all about.

Jordin is gorgeous and her voice is incredible. She has grown in this competition and she seems like she has finally realized she can win this thing. There's a new sense of confidence in her and it's giving her that extra little shove towards the finish line. She was exquisite and unforgettable last night and proved she's a front runner to win this whole thing.

I think the final three will be Melinda, Jordin and Blake. Who will win? It's antibody's game at this point. But the real question on everyones mind: Will David Hasselhoff be in the audience and will he cry when the next American Idol is crowned?

Getting Cultural on your ass

Chicago is coming to the Orange County Performing Arts Center from Jun. 26, 2007 - Jul. 1, 2007. Tickets range from $20.00 - $70.00.

How fun would that be?!!

But wait, there's more!

Coming August 7th-August 19th, Mamma Mia will be hitting the OCPAC stage. I have always wanted to see this. My Mom saw it in London a few years back and said it was really good.

I really don't take advantage of Orange County and all it has to offer. I should go to more museums, theater, live music etc.

We have culture here, we just have to stand behind it, be a part of it and support it.

C cup runneth over

Heidi from "The Hills" fame got a boob job and a nose job. Why? She looked great before. I actually think she looked much prettier with her God given features. I wouldn't doubt that her creepy and controlling boyfriend Spencer has something to do with this. That guy is such a douche bag!

US Weekly reports:
"Just three weeks after her breast augmentation and rhinoplasty, Heidi Montag, 20, turned heads with beau Spencer Pratt April 22 on a Malibu beach. 'She looked awesome!' says an onlooker. 'She seemed really happy.'

Sources tell Us Weekly that Beverly Hills-based doc Frank Ryan did both surgeries. Montag always wanted C-cups, a pal tells Us.

'Whatever women need to do to feel sexy, they should do,' says Montag.

Though Montag has not confirmed she had surgery, she does admit she has plenty of reasons to be in good spirits."

It's sad that her and Lauren aren't friends anymore. How could she let a guy break up her friendship? I guess she's still young and doesn't quite get it yet.

"The Hills" is coming back for a third season, so we'll see what happens!

She's bouncin'

Rosie has announced that she is leaving the view after only one year. The ratings did go up while she was putting in her 2 cents, but so did the controversy.

Here's her official statement: "This has been an amazing experience, and one I wouldn't have traded for the world. Working with Barbara, Joy and Elisabeth has been one of the highlights of my career, but my needs for the future just didn't dovetail with what ABC was able to offer me.

To all the viewers out there, I just want to say 'thank you' for opening up your hearts and your homes to me this past year. But you can always find me at Here's hoping there's more confetti for all of us going forward."

I'm torn with her. Sometimes I like her and sometimes she's just too much too handle. But she has made so much money over the years, she can do pretty much anything she wants. She is obsessed with game shows, so maybe she'll host the new Price is Right?

That's so scamdelous

This has been verified by the FBI and it's spreading fast so be prepared should you get this call.

Most of us take those summons for jury duty seriously, but enough people skip out on their civic duty, that a new and ominous kind of scam has surfaced.

The caller claims to be a jury coordinator. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Give out any of this information and bingo, your identity just got stolen.

The scam has been reported so far in 11 states. This scam is particularly insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully people into giving information by pretending they're with the court system. The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide alerts on their web sites, warning consumers about the fraud.

Read more about it here and here.

Thanks Matty for passing this on to me.

Name that tune

Ever get stuck trying to figure out the words to one of your favorite old TV shows?

If you can't remember the lyrics and want to take a stroll down memory lane, check out Television Tunes , a website dedicated to television theme songs from the present and from the past.

All intro songs are alphabetical so you can quickly find what you're looking for. There are even classics like Beetlejuice, the Ed Sullivan Show, Kate and Allie, Mr. Belevedere, Wonder Woman, and yes the Gummy Bears.

Your welcome!

All smiles

Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale at the Grand opening of The Pearl concert theater in the Palms Hotel and Casino - April 21, 2007
The are one hot couple!

Hollaback girl!

Gwen kicked off her tour in Sin City over the weekend. How cute is she? I knew she'd have a fly wardrobe.

I really want to go see her at Verizon Wireless Amp. in June, but tickets are just so outrageously expensive!

I remember when getting tickets to a concert was more about who was more passioante. When I wanted to go see Rage Against the Machine, Janet Jackson etc I got up at the butt crack of dawn (when it's still chilly and dark outside) and went and stood in line. Only the hardcore deserved the best seats in the house.

Now, any Joe Smoe can get prime sections, just by being an American Express card holder and getting a password for pre sale. It's just not right.

Anyway, here is the set list that Gwen's rocking:

1. the sweet escape (police theme, harajuku girls come thru the audience in cop outfits and flashlights)

2. rich girl

3. yummy (gwen wears cute bakers cap)

4. 4 in the morning

5. luxurious

6. early winter

7. wind it up

8. fluorescent (so good!)

9. danger zone1

0. hollaback girl

11. now that you got it

12. dont get it twisted/breakin up

13. cool

14. wonderful life (gwen says this song is a left over from lamb and the reason she did a second album)

15. orange county girl


16. the real thing

17. u started it

18. what you waiting for

Ok, now I REALLY wanna go.

Anyone down for a fun night, slumming it on the lawn section? I know, I know, it sucks up there, and you have to deal with hearing everyone around you sing the songs and not hear that actual artist... but the tickets are cheaper and we will find a way to sneak backstage. Who's with me?

Catch up

After finally being sent home from "American Idol," Sanjaya doesn't seem to bummed. And he has good reason. There are rumors that he's been approached by several companies to be their spokesman, such as Gap and Suave.

As exciting as that is, I'm sure the highligh for him so far has been getting invited to the White House Correspondents' Dinner, along with a laundry list of other celebs.

People has the scoop on the guest list:
Malakar, 17, was a guest of PEOPLE, joining fellow celebs Valerie Bertinelli, High School Musical star Zac Efron, Project Runway's Tim Gunn, comedian Eddie Izzard and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Other stars at the event included Sheryl Crow and Laurie David (who had a run-in with Karl Rove), Kerry Washington, and Desperate Housewives stars Hatcher, James Denton and
creator Marc Cherry.

Ah, ok, so the Prex didn't get on the bat phone and give him a personal invite. He was a guest of People Magazine. Bush not a Fanjaya or Sanjaya?

Nick Lachey and his MTV girlfriend, Vanessa Minnillo, are moving in together after being an item for a year.

The two moved into their two-bedroom condo in Manhattan and have been seen in the local stores buying new things for their love shack.

I believe this is called "nesting."

Thank Goodness they haven't gone the usual "Hollywood" route of getting married 4 weeks into the relationship and divorced 4 weeks later.

Take your time kids!

Julia Roberts is looking radiant with her baby belly. This will be her third child and she's of course over the moon about it!

Britney Spears was headed off to the dance studio again, and this time she was showing off what she's been working on for weeks - her abs!

She's looking good, but I still think she's wackadoo!

I'm still here

It's been a while since I have posted anything and I just wanted to let you know that I'll have something for you soon. Things have been pretty hectic around here, so sorry about no gossip updates.

If it's any consulation, there hasn't really been anything too terribly exciting in Hollywood lately. There's that Alec Baldwin thing...but I am so disgusted by that, I don't think I'll even blog about it.

Ok, so yea, hang in there....gossip is coming soon...

Stick it to me

A group of 10 UC Santa Cruz engineering students spent five hours of prime reading and studying time to create a four-story post-it art piece inspired by everyone's favorite Nintendo classic video game, Donkey Kong. And I must say, it was time well spent.

The piece, which stretched throughout the windows of a campus building, was created with 6,400 post-it notes; however, in order to get the colors right the crew actually purchased a whopping 14,000.

That is a whole crap load of post its dude!

Idol Chatter

Blake is going to win this whole competition.

He's got a whole new vibe that has never been showcased on American Idol. He's young, fresh and has it going on.

Even if he doesn't, he's going to be a big star.

Like the new photo of him? Check out his myspace page for more.

These should be the next to go home. They were awful last night and I have never been a fan of either of them.

P.S. Was anyone else totally creeped out by Sanjaya's facial hair? It was so gross!

Dogpound bound?

Snoop, 35 years old, could face up to four years in prison!

People magazine reports: "Snoop was arrested Oct. 26 at Burbank's airport after a handgun and marijuana were found in his car, police say.

Police executing a search warrant at his suburban Los Angeles home in November allegedly discovered another gun. Because Snoop is a convicted felon from a 1990 cocaine trafficking bust, he is forbidden from possessing a gun for life.

His attorney, Donald Etra, tells PEOPLE: "These are the charges that were fully expected, and they will be dealt with ... in court."

The musician also has a standing case in Orange County for a felony charge of knowingly possessing a dangerous weapon. On Sept. 27, Snoop tried to board a plane in Santa Ana, Calif., while carrying a 20-inch collapsible baton in a computer bag, police say.

"Snoop's not guilty plea (in that case) says it all," Etra said at the time. "The item he's charged with was a movie prop, not a weapon. Snoop never intended it to be used as anything other than a prop."'d think you would figure it out by now. Don't take guns and drugs with you, especially when boarding a plane.

Smarty Pants

Actor Giovanni Ribisi has announced that he has been cast as a young Albert Einstein in an upcoming biopic.

"I don't know if I should say, but I will, finally, talk about it," Ribisi said. "Einstein. I'm going to be doing Albert Einstein, with Liliana Cavani, who did the Charlotte Rampling film from the 70s, called The Night Porter. It's great and the script is really great, and I'm really excited about it."

Ribisi said the film will begin shooting "in July, I think, and there's another movie called The Stanford Prison Experiment after that."

I love Giovanni Ribisi. He makes every role he plays his own and can go from comedy to drama and still make it completely believable.

Who's your Daddy?

It should come as no surprise that Larry Birkhead was just named the biological father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby girl, Dannilynn Hope.

A court in the Bahamas revealed the paternity results and it's all arrows pointing in Larry's direction.

Howard K. Stern is a douche bag and needs to go away now.

I think Larry is the most stable of all these characters to care for the baby.

Let's hope it's smooth sailing from here on out.

Ipod your pardon

Today Apple announced that the 100 millionth iPod has been sold, making the iPod the fastest selling music player in history.
The first iPod was sold five and a half years ago, in November 2001, and since then Apple has introduced more than 10 new iPod models.
And an iPod even stopped a bullet from hitting a soldier last week. Well deserved kudos indeed.
Even Celebs can't help but sing praises from the rooftops:

“At this historic milestone, we want to thank music lovers everywhere for making iPod such an incredible success,” said Steve Jobs. “iPod has helped millions of people around the world rekindle their passion for music, and we’re thrilled to be a part of that.”

Celebrities also lined up to sing the praises of their favorite gadget,
“It’s hard to remember what I did before the iPod,” said Mary J. Blige, GRAMMY Award-winning singer. “iPod is more than just a music player, it’s an extension of your personality and a great way to take your favorite music with you everywhere you go.”

“Without the iPod, the digital music age would have been defined by files and folders instead of songs and albums,” said John Mayer, GRAMMY Award-winning singer-songwriter and guitarist. “Though the medium of music has changed, the iPod experience has kept the spirit of what it means to be a music lover alive."

"I take my running shoes and my iPod with me everywhere,” said Lance Armstrong, seven-time Tour de France champion. “I listen to music when I run. Having my music with me is really motivating.”
Now, if i can only figure out how to use mine...

Not together

Mystery solved Of course the photo of them cuddling was a fake. Here's the original photo.

I think I like the other one better!

Sidebar: Chris has been linked to Lindsay Lohan and now Lauren from "The Hills!" They were spotted outside Hollywood hotspot Parc.

Chris is hitting the town, but where's Blake hiding?

Fake gay love

Somebody please tell me that this is photoshopped.

If you look closely, there's something nor quite right. It looks like someone took an image of Blake sitting on that chair and out it on top of a Chris sitting on the same chair.

After a little tweaking with photo shop, it appears they are all cuddled up together.

I don't believe it.

If this was true, I think Chris would be much more affectionate, don't you think?

They would make a hot couple, that's for sure!

Smile for the camera

There are rumors that Laguna Beach and The Hills reality stars Lauren Conrad and Jason Wahler made a sex tape during their tubulant relationship, and now LC is worried that Jason is going to sell it.

Um, why would you make a sex tape? Does anything ever good come out of that? Especially when you're a celebrity?

And I thought she was smarter than that.

Run, don't walk

Seeing live theater is something so fantastic and wonderful in itself. And then, on top of that, to see a Broadway play, well that just blows the roof off.

For Valentines day, Matt bought me tickets to go see Wicked at the Pantages Theater. Friday night was the night, as I am still high of the whole thing.

We had the most incredible seats, Orchestra, row M. There wasn't a better seat in the whole house.

In case you're not familiar with the story, the website sums it up: "Long before Dorothy dropped in, two other girls meet in the Land of Oz. One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two unlikely friends end up as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch makes for the most spellbinding new musical in years."

This production was absolutely amazing and fantastic and hilarious and touching and full of twists and turns. I think I watched the whole thing with a big smile plastered on my face. When the intermission came, Matt and I didn't even get out of our seats.

I highly recommend that if you have the opportunity, that you go see this production. Not only does it have an amazing cast, including Carol Cane (Taxi, Scrooged.)

But the stand out performance for both Matt and I was by far, Megan Hilty. She played the character of "Glinda" and I can honestly say, she deserves a Tony for her performance. She was hilarious and the crowd ate it up.

Wonderful cast, wonderful story and wonderful music.

Three wonderfuls equals WICKED!
