Stupid Little Things
- Oprah Winfrey has been signed for $12 million by Simon and Schuster to write a book on weight control. This seems like asking Scott Petersen to write about marriage commitment.
- Jennifer Lopez is producing a new reality show for MTV (as if they need another one) called "Moves," about six dancers trying to make it big. The show will air this winter.
- Tonight on MTV, meanwhile, is the series premiere of "The Hills," which follows "Laguna Beach" first season alum Lauren Conrad (aka LC) as she moves to Los Angeles and becomes an intern for Teen Vogue. I'll probably be obsessed with this show like I was with "Laguna," but I would just like to state the obvious that it's not like LC would have gotten the internship if she wasn't famous...also, I just got my Teen Vogue in the mail last week, and guess who's on the cover? Uh-huh.
- California is now considering a bill to make it illegal for a child under the age of 1 to face forward in a car (hello, Sean Preston). The New York Daily News is calling it "Britney's Law." Hee, hee.
- Cate Blanchett is going to play Bob Dylan in an upcoming biopic. I know she's ugly, but she most certainly doesn't resemble Bob Dylan.
- After being sentenced to 60 days in jail for violating parole on her drunk driving sentence, "Lost" star Michelle Rodriguez was released from prison after serving 4 hours and 27 minutes because of overcrowding. I wonder if she's still moving to France?
- Despite trying to work out their problems, Hilary Swank and Chad Lowe have announced that they are divorcing. I'm not going to say anything nasty because I am actually saddened by this news.
- The New York Post and Star report that Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman went on a date in NYC's West Village restaurant The Spotted Pig on May 22, and that he gave her a dozen pink tulips. If this is true, I've found a new celebrity couple obsession.
