sharon stone dress

Attention deprived actress Sharon Stone set tongues wagging at the Oscars Sunday night with a dress that was more than a little bit revealing.

The Oscars was a night for celebrities to show their stuff, especially actress Sharon Stone. Did anyone get a good look at her dress? Unlike Beyonce's wardrobe malfunction you didn't need an extreme close-up to get a good look at the Sharon Stone's nipples in her sheer Oscar dress.Stone’s Oscars dress was sheer black and lace, and Stone wasn’t wearing a bra.

It's like there's a pair of owl's eyes staring right at me. Did Sharon Stone realize her Oscar dress was this sheer? With all the people helping her prepare for Oscar night, how could she not know? Unless they hate her. I sniff a publicity stunt. Sharon Stone has a new movie coming out in April. Is this her lame attempt to hype herself to get some press? After all, no publicity is bad publicity.

How do we know she wasn’t wearing a bra? well every picture taken of her at an after party clearly shows her surgically enhanced breasts right down to the nipple.

angelina jolie reaction to jennifer aniston

Jennifer Aniston and Jack Black presented the awards for best animated feature and animated short film at the Oscars last night, but it was who was in the front row that grabbed some attention.

Despite having nothing to do with the category, the camera focused in on Angelina Jolie.

“After four years of near misses, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie were finally in the same room together–just a few feet apart.

Aniston took the stage with Jack Black and joked her way through their script for Best Animated Feature.

The cameraman quickly moved over to a shot of Jolie, who smiled on like she didn’t have a care in the world. Aniston on the other hand seemed a little tense and nervous on stage.

Everyone was hoping for a dramatic run in, but it was pretty civil…on camera at least! “

Angelina Jolie’s reaction to the former Mrs Brad Pitt: all class, well at least all smiles anyway. The tabloid fantasy of a showdown didn’t eventuate, and the coverage quickly returned to the stage.

Here’s the Angelina Jolie reaction to Jennifer Aniston video. Jolie comes on camera at the 45 second mark

Hope Dworaczyk And Seth Rogen posed for playboy??

Is Seth Rogen so sexy he’s posing for Playboy? Not Playgirl. Playboy.

He is doing the cover alongside Hope Dworaczyk ( Jason Kidd’s baby mama) . reports that despite the exciting news, Rogen's reps won't confirm.

Well, rumor has it that the Canadian star, Seth Rogen will be featured on the cover of Playboy magazine for the incoming issue. The New York Post's Page Six breaks the report, claiming the actor-comedian would likely grace the cover of the men's magazine's March issue.

Rogen's camp has not yet commented on the report, but an unnamed insider has told Page Six that Rogen will pose with Hope Dworaczyk, the mother of NBA star Jason Kidd's baby. Representatives for Playboy declined to comment on the report though.

Despite sketchy details on that matter, Rogen will surely become the ninth man who graces the cover of Playboy should Page Six's report is proven true. He will join the ranks of legendary actor, Peter Sellers, comics Steve Martin and Jerry Seinfeld as well as '70s box office icon, Burt Reynolds, all of whom have been featured on Playboy's covers.

The actor, who has shown some skin in past films like Knocked Up, has been getting in shape for upcoming role in The Green Hornet. Who knew all those work outs would land him in the same league as Burt Reynolds, Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Martin and Peter Sellers. The only men to grace the cover of Playboy to date.

Of course the 26-year-old star does have a movie coming out this spring as well. He stars in the comedy Observe and Report about a mall cop who gets a little too territorial when the police try to take over his investigation of a parking lot flasher.

alex mccord nude

Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen are, and this is saying a lot, the most talked about couple on the New York social circuit.

At least the circuit that forms the nucleus of The Real Housewives of New York City, a delicious little reality show that takes viewers insides the lives and limos, the mansions and, um, the minds of the pretty people who populate the elite echelons of Gotham.

Alex McCord is one of the six "housewives" on the show, though like the others she really isn't a housewife, at least not in the traditional sense, because she works outside the home.

Nor is she quite yet a bona fide Manhattan socialite - having neither married nor inherited such vaunted status - and thus is working hard on acceptance into the club.

In fact, while the show focuses on McCord (visual merchandising) and five other posh women - Jill Zarin (home furnishings), Luanne de Lesseps (a countess), Ramona Singer (fashion entrepreneur), Bethenny Frankel (chef) and newcomer Kelly Killoren Bensimon (model/editor) - it's McCord who usually finds herself the odd-girl out.

The reason for that? McCord's erudite hubby Simon van Kempen, a charming fellow who manages a Manhattan hotel and who is inseparable from his wife.

Their symbiotic relationship sets them apart - they are the youngest couple, he's 44 and she's 35, and have the youngest children- and their joined-at-the-hip attachment means he crashes the girls-only parties and shows up where he's not always welcome.

It's just one source of irritation, and tension, on the show, which premieres its second season tonight on Bravo.

A spinoff of its popular older sister, The Real Housewives of Orange County, season two was filmed last year between June and November, and follows the frenemies - oh, they like each other, but don't let that fool you - as they deal with their careers and families, fretting over fashion and frown lines, and flitting from dinner parties on the Hudson to summers in The Hamptons.

It's 12 new episodes of much drama and not a little bitchiness, and you can be sure some of the latter will be directed at McCord and van Kempen.

One bone of contention among the housewives is what they consider the pair's unorthodox parenting skills.

The couple is raising two sons - Francois, now five and Johan, three - in their Brooklyn townhouse and not only brag that their boys are brilliant (especially Francois) but seem to substitute discipline and rules of etiquette for being "present" in their boys' life.

The couple, on the phone from New York last week and getting ready for the premiere party, say they were naive when filming the first season.

Alex, who has acting experience, says: "We were primarily concerned with doing good TV. We weren't prepared for how literally viewers took everything."

Adds van Kempen: "Of the five-and-a-half thousand minutes they filmed us, we had about 60 minutes of screen time. We didn't come off season one looking particularly good. Most of the footage of Francois wasn't particularly good."

But, he says, they certainly aren't embarrassed by any of it and, in fact, have been inundated with emails from viewers wanting parenting advice.

"We were amazed by the tidal wave of emails coming in from people asking us specific questions about the kids - how do you work full-time and raise kids in the city, how do you manage to handle more than one language, what do you do when you travel, what's the different between an au pair and a nanny?"

So when they were on vacation last summer, "we just started writing," says McCord.

The result is a book, to be published later this fall and tentatively titled The Urban Parent: Adventures from a Real House in New York City.

It's not a how-to book, they caution, but more about what they've discovered raising their boys - who take swimming, art and French classes - in one of the most vibrant cities in the world.

Their advice includes leading by example, being consistent, having dinner and conversation together with the kids every night, and ensuring you are "emotionally present" in your child's life.

Which isn't to say season two is all about the kids.

McCord, in fact, promises things will be "pretty juicy" among the housewives, especially when she and Jill, the oil to her water, pick up where they left off.

Why Does Alex McCord Keep Being Naked?

Alex McCord, one of the stars of Bravo's strange and upsetting reality series Real Housewives of New York City, continues to be nude. In a recent interview with In Touch magazine (a publication as prestigious as Parade magazine if someone pooped on Parade magazine), the square-headed fame grubber spoke out about the photos, saying "it was a celebration that a new mom can be in great shape." Um, OK. Fair enough. But riddle me this, Ms. McCord: Why did the photographer you mention, James Demaria, recently email us and describe these photos as a Playboy audition? (A slightly NSFW image follows) Was being in Playboy part of the new mommy celebration? And what about those other, decidedly more raunchy naked pictures you took with photographer Bob Coulter? You know, the ones that can be found here, here, here, here, and here. Were those post-pregnancy celebrations as well? Just fess up! Naked pictures can make you famous! And you and your homosexual husband really, really want to be famous, don't you? Ugh. This woman continues to reduce her life to a hideous, squirmy, sad embarrassment.

joaquin phoenix in Letterman

Joaquin Phoenix's Bizarre Letterman Appearance

Over the past several weeks, Joaquin Phoenix has been insisting that his rap career is for real. He has grown a shaggy beard, constantly wears sunglasses and gets defensive at any question asked, especially regarding his music career. But that was nothing compared to his appearance on Letterman last night.

The 34-year-old two-time Oscar nominee stuttered and stammered his way through the interview, looking lost and irritated a great deal of the time. Letterman, well known for his humor, made cracks at Phoenix's beard and the fact that he was chewing gum, all in an attempt to coax the actor to speak.

Joaquin Phoenix made a bizarre appearance on Wednesday night's Letterman to promote his film "Two Lovers," during what may be his last visit as an actor. Phoenix has insisted he is retiring from film to focus on his hip-hop career.

If you saw Joaquin Phoenix's on last night's Late Show With David Letterman and worried that the ''retired'' actor and aspiring rapper is losing his grip, take heart: People were wondering the same thing nine years and two Oscar nominations ago. Trawling through the EW archives we hit upon this item that seems like it could have been written this morning (with the words "The Yards" simply changed to "Two Lovers"), but is actually from Nov. 3, 2000. An excerpt:

"And the No. 1 bizarre talk show guest is...The Yards star [Joaquin] Phoenix! On a Late Show With David Letterman appearance, the actor came off as hilariously dazed and confused, claiming he couldn't remember his birthday or, at one point, where he got his tattoo. This follows a May spot on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno in which Phoenix was so distracted Leno requested that he ''be here in person'' next time. Phoenix's camp had no comment, but Late Show exec producer Maria Pope replies: ''He's been on three times now. The first couple of times we thought there was a gas leak in the greenroom. Now we've determined, no, that's just Joaquin.''

Phoenix was unresponsive for part of the interview, while giving one word answers for other questions.

He has an uncomfortable exchange with Paul Shaffer, gets annoyed at the audience and won't even set up the clip from his movie "Two Lovers." That's before he takes the gum out of his mouth and sticks it to Letterman's desk.

Letterman ends the interview with, "Joaquin, I'm sorry you couldn't be here tonight."

It must be seen to be appreciated.

Felicia Barton Replaces Joanna Pacitti on American Idol

Burning question: Why was Felicia Barton picked when Joanna Pacitti was axed?

A bit of a mystery has emerged on the first night of "American Idol's" season proper.

Just as the Green Mile episode was put to bed today, a contestant has gone missing: Joanna Pacitti, who has been considered one of the favorites because of her previous singing experience.

Felicia Barton, 26, will be replacing Joanna Pacitti in American Idol’s Top 36, after Pacitti was booted from the competition. Pacitti was disqualified after being told on Wednesday night she would be returning for the next round.

“It has been determined that Joanna Pacitti is ineligible to continue in the competition,” FOX said in a statement released Wednesday night. “American Idol contestant Felicia Barton has replaced Ms. Pacitti as part of the Top 36.”

Pacitti’s eligibility has been called into question since it was learned she had previous record deals, including the release of an album with Geffen Records, and the single “Let It Slide” with A&M Records, as well as close relationships with two executives of 19 Management, the production company behind Idol.

Pacitti lived in the same apartment building as 19’s Michelle Young and Roger Widynowski, even referring to the former exec as her “best friend.”

Both Barton and Pacitti audtioned in Louisville, KY. Barton lives in Virginia Beach with her husband and son.

The official Fox news release announcing the top 36 contestants lists female singers Alexis Grace, Allison Iraheta, Anne Marie Boskovich, Arianna Asfar, Casey Carlson, Felicia Barton, Jackie Tohn, Jasmine Murray, Jeanine Vailes, Jesse Langseth, Kendall Beard, Lil Rounds, Megan Corkrey, Mishavonna Henson, Stevie Wright, Tatiana Del Toro, Kristen McNamara and Taylor Vaifanua.

And below the long list of names was this:

"[EDITOR'S NOTE: It has been determined that Joanna Pacitti is ineligible to continue in the competition. AMERICAN IDOL contestant Felicia Barton has replaced Ms. Pacitti as part of the Top 36.]"

That's right, no Joanna Pacitti, whom we saw make it through the Green Mile tonight. And the list includes Felicia Barton, who was seen being sent packing on the Green Mile episode.

A source close to the show now tells us that Pacitti was disqualified to avoid the appearance of impropriety.

In the last week, tabloids had been reporting on a private relationship between Pacitti and executives of 19 Management, one of the companies overseeing "Idol."

blink 182 back together

Musical groups coming back after a breakup and/or long hiatus has been quite common in recent years. Pixies, My Bloody Valen­tine, The Spice Girls, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Blondie… and the list goes on.

After four long years the punk world is abuzz as rockers Blink 182 confirmed rumors of a reunion tour at the 2009 Grammy Award Show. Blink, was originally composed of Tom DeLonge (vocals, guitar), Mark Hoppus (vocals, bass) and Scott Raynor (drums). In 1998, midway through a U.S. tour, drummer Travis Barker replaced Raynor. DeLonge left the group in early 2005, initiating an indefinite hiatus. DeLonge went on to form Angels & Airwaves, while Hoppus and Barker continued playing music with +44. On February 8, 2009, Blink-182 announced that they had reunited and they’re back to play music again.

It’s understandable that devoted fans are undoubtedly over­joyed when they get word that “the band’s getting back together.” One Ubyssey editor actually cried tears of happiness upon learn­ing of Blink’s reunion. But perhaps we should be wary of getting our hopes up.

In many cases, bands fail when they try to return. Van Halen’s reunion in 2003 was marred by Eddie’s alcohol issues, and viewed by some as largely a money grab. Guns N’Roses ten years in production Chinese Democracy was a commercial flop, being outsold by Taylor Swift’s Fearless.

On the other hand, the return of The Spice Girls reunion tour was quite successful; the majority of their shows completely sold out. However, concertgoers at their Vancouver show reported that the majority of the audience was only interested in hearing their old songs, taking bathroom breaks when newer material was performed. In many cases, “comeback” bands operate primarily on the strength of nostalgia.

No band lasts forever. The life of touring takes a toll, what with all the sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Members get old and burnt out. Interpersonal conflicts and in-fighting break up groups. And when bands try to get back together while still harbouring unresolved issues, the result can be disastrous. Comeback tours are often disappointing failures instead of the triumphant returns they are supposed to be.

That said, some of us are still hoping that Blink 182, at least, will “stay together for the kids,” and that fans will be earnestly chanting for their shows to last “forever, and ever/let’s make this last forever.”

Mia Pregnant

Wow, we have seen a lot of shocking outfits come out of Hollywood but rapper M.I.A., who is pregnant and due to give birth any day now, one-upped everyone at the Grammys last night.

While MIA is carrying her baby, who is due to meet his mother any day now, she wants everyone to know her son is going to be a hip-hop star.

It was an interesting night at the Grammys when a very pregnant M.I.A. decided to waddle her way over to the cameras, admitting she has no idea when she'll be giving birth - and still performed with Kanye West.

She said Sunday night that her baby boy will be a hip hop star: "He's getting ready for Jay-Z and Lil Wayne. So far, so good."

"I just don't know what labor is. It's my first baby. So I'm not walking around going, 'Maybe this is it.' The baby is just moving around, getting his swagga on."

MIA wore a transparent dress by Henry Holland, a British designer. Holland’s design used circles of white and black polka dots to hide the strategic locations. MIA sang with T.I., Jay-Z, and Lil Wayne. Please click on the link to see MIA’s transparent dress.

Wow. Her performance video is below.

did chris brown go to jail???

Grammy night began and ended with an unfortunate news story: After being sought by police in connection with an alleged domestic assault, Chris Brown has been charged with one count of making felony criminal threats and released from custody on $50,000 bail. The 19-year-old singer was accused of being involved in an altercation with a female victim around 12:30 a.m.
So why, you ask, was Chris Brown booked for making criminal threats rather than domestic abuse, given the victim -- we're told Rihanna -- had "visible injuries"?

Sunday morning. Police were summoned to an area near Los Angeles’ Hancock Park neighborhood following reports of a violent domestic dispute that escalated when the two parties involved exited their vehicle. While authorities have refused to identify the victim — who reportedly suffered visible wounds — sources tell Rolling Stone that as suspected, she is Brown’s girlfriend Rihanna. Both stars pulled out of tonight’s Grammy ceremony early Sunday afternoon.

Law enforcement sources tell us they typically book a suspect for the most serious crime they can be charged with -- it's then up to the D.A. to file any additional charges.

Given there were allegedly visible injuries, the crime of making criminal threats is punishable by up to nine years in prison. Domestic abuse is four years.

Chris Brown was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of alleged domestic violence, then released after posting $50,000 bail. The fact that the singer missed attending and performing at the Grammys, and lost both awards he was nominated for was clearly the least of his worries.

The LAPD are investigating the events of early Sunday when they received a 911 call from an unidentified woman who accused Chris Brown of hurting her. Police said the women had visible injuries and Chris left the scene before the authorities arrived.

TMZ is reporting that long-time girlfriend Rihanna is the alleged victim and that she was assaulted with a deadly weapon.

Earlier that evening Chris and Rihanna were hanging out at Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party. Both singers cancelled their scheduled performances at the Grammys and did not attend the glitzy bash.

The couple, who first met three years ago when they were doing the FOX reality show “Skating with Celebrities,” tied the knot in front of 100 family members and friends.

"We wanted to celebrate Lloyd and I coming together as a family," says Swanson, referring to 2-year-old son Magnus, and Eisler's children from a previous marriage, Ethan Harley, 4, and Seth Keenan, 3.

Swanson, 39, wore a strapless ivory wedding gown by Amy Michelson and the groom, who is 45, wore a tuxedo by Nicole Miller walked down the aisle to Van Morrison's "Crazy Love."

During the ceremony, the couple and their combined children placed individual flowers in a vase, symbolizing a family bouquet.

The newlyweds danced their first dance to Edwin McCain's "I'll Be," a song they performed to on their reality show. At the reception, guests, including actors Paul Reubens and Maeve Quinlan, dined on filet mignon and a four-tier wedding cake.

"We're excited about the future," says Eisler. "Kristy is getting back into acting and I'm building my coaching career. Hopefully everything will work out."

Jessica Simpson Had a 'Rough Week'

After more than a week of battling body bullies and fashion critics, Jessica Simpson showed off her figure in a tiny pair of Daisy Duke-style short-shorts onstage in Grand RapidsThursday night.

But Simpson – who seemed nervous and tentative at times – told the crowd of 15,000 that it had been "a rough week."

At one point in the show she said, "You definitely have to confront everything you go through."

Though the singer thanked fans last week for their support, the stress of the recent scrutiny may have also taken a physical toll on Simpson, who frequently sipped from a mug during the 40-minute set.

Simpson, who was the opening act for the country trio Rascal Flatts, stopped singing during one of her songs and asked to start it over.

Supports from fanatic fans

The audience didn't seem to mind. Shouts of "We love you, Jessica," followed her as she finished her performance and exited the stage.

"She looked very nervous,She just seemed very shy, but I think she picked a good selection of songs. I loved her CD. It's fun and girly" said fan Tanja Barunovic, 22.

Another fan, Ellen Simons, 16, of Grand Rapids, said, "She looked very healthy. I think she is more of a healthy skinny now, rather than skinny-skinny. Celebrities, if they gain five pounds, they are under the worst pressure. It's just not fair to them."

Claire Danes & Hugh Dancy Are Engaged!

Supermodel Angie Everhart Pregnant!

Model/actress Angie Everhart is set to become a first-time mom, and hopes to turn her pregnancy into a reality TV series.

Angie Everhart is carrying child and using her pregnancy to pitch a reality show called Angie Baby about a single mom trying to keep her show biz career afloat in Hollywood.

Everhart -- who split from former fiance Joe Pesci last April -- is 14 weeks pregnant, but refuses to reveal the identity of the baby's father.

While Angie isn't divulging the name of the father, pals tell that "it's definitely not former boyfriend Joe Pesci."

She tells E! Online, "The dad is very nice and he's very excited about it, but we are not a couple. It's nobody you know."

She also has announced that she would like to have the pregnancy documented on a reality show called Angie Baby. She is currently shopping around for a home for it.

“I decided to do a show about me being a single, strong, healthy and good-spirited woman who is having a baby on her own,” she says. “I want to show the positive aspects of women who do it on their own.”

And the star is shopping around her single-mum status to broadcasters in a bid to land her very own fly-on-the-wall show.

She adds, "I decided to do a show about me being a single, strong, healthy and good-spirited woman who is having a baby on her own. I want to show the positive aspects of women who do it on their own."

This will be the first child for the 39-year-old model-turned-actress who starred opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1993 film Last Action Hero.

"Angie's hoping a reality show documenting her life as a single celebrity mom will inspire other single mothers struggling to juggle careers with motherhood," added the source.

"She very excited about being a mom and the prospect of a new show!"

I think it would be great for those single moms out there to see someone succeeding, I know when I was a single mom I would have liked to see something like that and empower me.

Congratulations goes out to Angie.

Beyonce Slammed By Etta James

There's something scrappy in Hollywood's water -- mere days after the very unexpected Faye Dunaway/Hilary Duff feud was ignited, another old guard/new guard battle is blazing. This time around Etta James is kicking it old school -- and threatening to kick Beyonce's teeth in.

Now, I was under the impression that these ladies got on like gangbusters -- not only did Beyonce play Etta in 2008's "Cadillac Records," but Etta acted as a mentor to B and attended the December premiere. Well, that's all in the past because Etta is furious that Beyonce dared to sing her iconic "At Last" during the presidential inauguration.

While Beyonce has been going on for months about how Etta James is one of her idols, it appears the object of her affection has been wanting to kick her butt!

The 71-year-old singer seemingly had her feathers ruffled when she heard that Beyonce sang her eternal hit, At Last, at Barack Obama’s Inauguration Ball.

Said Etta at a concert in Seattle last week, “Your President, the one with the big ears … he had that woman singing my song. She gone get her ass whipped.” She added: “The great Beyonce … I can’t stand Beyonce.”

"I can't stand Beyonce! She's going to get her ass whooped," Etta screamed (via) at an event celebrating her career. The chanteuse went on to slam Barack Obama for selecting Ms. Knowles to do the honors. "You know your president, the one with the big ears -- he ain't my president -- he had that woman singing for him at his Inauguration. How dare Beyonce sing my song that I been singing forever!"

I can't decide why this bothers Etta so much now -- Beyonce had previously sang the song at Fashion Rocks, for AOL Live Sessions and in "Cadillac Records." Guess this was just one time too many.
Beyonce and her camp took the high road by not responding was reached for comment.

This, of course, begs the question: Team Etta or Team Beyonce?

Katrina 'Bikini Girl' Darrell Heats Up 'American Idol'

In American Idol Season 8 first round to Hollywood all eyes are on Katrina Bikini Girl Darrell. Is Kara DioGuardi insecure to Katrina Darrell? I dont think so. But the news is Katrina Bikini Girl Darrell made it to American Idol Season 8 first round to Hollywood.

Well, American Idol got off to a rockin’ start last night. Now, as I sat around and watched this with my wife and three daughters, I was thinking to myself, you know what this show is missing? More sex, specifically girls in bikini’s. Well, not to fear because Katrina Darrel soon made her appearance and cured that deficiency. You can watch the video below.

So, judge for yourself, can Ms. Darrell sing? She got the vote of both Cowell and Jackson (but one wonders how objective they were) but the new judge this season, DioGuardi was not too impressed. In fact, Darrell fired back at her and the two got into it with each other. Now, that is something Idol could use more of, half-naked girl cat fights, talk about a ratings winner. Personally, I don’t care much about the signing, I hope we see more of the young Ms. Darrell, or less of her if you know what I mean.

Katrina "Bikini Girl" Darrell — the 20-year-old model who auditioned for "American Idol" in her bikini and made it to Hollywood Week — is stirring controversy.

After Darrell made it through the first round of Hollywood Week last night, which in the past, was no easy feat and separated the mediocre from the great, an "Idol" expert from the smash entertainment program MTV said he’s questioning the producers’ judgment on season 8.

"As an ‘Idol’ fan, I was more angry about those two fools [Darrell and comedian Nick "Norman Gentle" Mitchel] hogging more screen time, when contestants I actually cared about were cut," said resident MTV News "Idol" expert Jim Cantiello. "Hollywood Week is supposed to be ‘Idol’ fans’ gift, after a month of shticky auditions. We watch the audition episodes for the comedy. We watch Hollywood Week for the nail-biting, hair-pulling drama. It’s disappointing that producers got it wrong this year."

Darrell, who we first met in January when she sang Mariah Carey "Vision of Love" in a itsy-bitsy bikini and high heels, is also causing debate among the judges. During the Hollywood round, the new judge Kara DioGuardi said she hated Darrell’s rendition of Faith Hill’s "Breathe" in the end. Cowell made a cat claw motion (with animal sounds) and DioGuardi fired back: "Bring your pole tomorrow." Katrina advanced to the next round.

Kate Micucci set to play 'Scrubs' role

Anna Torv is Married!

It's true.

The "Fringe" actress reportedly married her co-star Mark Valley, who plays her former partner and lover on the show, over the holidays.

According to the LA Times' Dish Rag, a source on the set says that the couple had kept their relationship hush-hush, but since Valley is reportedly leaving the show, they shared their happy news with the cast and crew.

OK, "love interest" may be simplifying things just a wee bit. Mark plays her ex-lover John Scott, who turned out to be evil and died, but then came back to the series through hallucinations. (Just another day in the world of J.J. Abrams.)

So when and where did the wedding ceremony go down? And more importantly, who even knew these two were together at all?

Though Torv's rep declined to provide further details, sources on the show tell us the small, private ceremony took place over the holidays.The pair has been quietly dating for several months—so quietly that many of their fellow castmates and crew members weren't aware they were together.
Neither did the press. On Thursday, Valley took part in a conference call with reporters, and talked about his new bride (without referencing her as such). "I think [Anna] is just a fantastic actor and I really like working with her," he said. "She's my favorite on the show, to be honest with you." (We should hope so!)

We're told the ceremony took place within days of Mark's 45th birthday. Anna is 30.

What do you think of this real-life coupling? Anyone else surprised?
Torv, 30, and Valley, 44, met on the set of "Fringe." Torv plays FBI Agent Olivia Dunham who had dated Agent John Scott (Valley), who later proved to be a traitor and an agent of the Pattern.

Valley is best known as Brad Chase on "Boston Legal" and for starring on the short-lived "Keen Eddie." Torv is an Australian actress who co-starred as one half of a lesbian couple on "Mistresses," which will premiere on BBC America on Friday, Feb. 20.

miley cyrus slant eye

Disney teen idol Miley Cyrus has been accused of taunting and mocking Asians by making slant-eye poses in a personal photograph with her friends.

A snapshot of Cyrus, 16, best known as the star of the Disney Channel show "Hannah Montana", and friends posing with an Asian friend and pulling their eyes sideways surfaced on the Internet this week.

The OCA, a national organization in the United States dedicated to advancing the social and political welfare of Asian Pacific Americans, called on the singer-actress to apologize.

The group said the image "falls within a long and unfortunate history of people mocking and denigrating individuals of Asian descent."

"Not only has Miley Cyrus and the other individuals in the photograph encouraged and legitimized the taunting and mocking of people of Asian descent, she has also insulted her many Asian Pacific American friends," OCA executive director George Wu in a statement issued on Monday.

Wu said the fact that an Asian friend was included in the photo "does not make it acceptable."

Representatives for Cyrus did not immediately return calls for comment on Tuesday.

Cyrus, one of the biggest teen stars in the world, apologized to fans last year for a Vanity Fair photo shoot which showed her apparently wearing little but a satin bedsheet. She also came under fire in 2008 for personal pictures showing her in her underwear.

Here are the shocking photos of Miley Cyrus and friends posting with stereotypical faces that mimic Chinese people, images which you can blow up below. The Miley Cyrus slant eye pose has prompted Asian advocacy groups to call for her apology, or worse from Disney.America’s teenage darling is no stranger to controversy. She famously posed practically nude for Vanity Fair last year. Earlier racy pictures of her kissing a girl and posing in a shower were posted, presumably by friends. The embarrassing moments are so frequent that many are assuming that Miley is desperately trying to shed her good girl image.

And so we have the “chink eye” pictures surface, which are certainly shocking, but also obtuse and inconsiderate. At best they show a clueless teenage, and at worst a successful woman with prejudices. Celebrity juggernaut TMZ has labeled her “Hanoi Miley” for the affront.

Gary Collins arrested

Former TV host Gary Collins was arrested Saturday night for DUI, an employee for the Santa Barbara, Calif., County Jail confirms. He has since posted bail and was released. No further details were immediately available.

Authorities say they arrested actor and TV host Gary Collins on suspicion of drunken driving. According to an arrest report, deputies in the coastal county of Santa Barbara pulled Collins over Saturday evening after noticing him driving a motor home erratically. The 70-year-old was arrested by the California Highway Patrol after failing a field sobriety test. He was later released on $25,000 bail.

Back in January 2008, Collins, 70, served four days in a Glendale, Calif., jail for what was his second DUI conviction at the time.

Collins is currently serving four years probation from that case, stemming from an accident in Los Angeles in October 2007, in which Collins was struck by another driver who later died from his injuries. The former Hour Magazine and Home Show host was not found responsible for the other driver's death.

Records also indicate he was convicted of DUI in 2004 in Malibu. They did not indicate whether he has an attorney.

A rep for Collins wasn't immediately available for comment.
