Celebrity hypocrite: Alec Baldwin

New pictures emerged over the weekend of Alec Baldwin physically attacking a paparazzo, ironically taken by the other paps present.

While it’s been claimed the photographer in question [Paul Adao] was ‘aggressively pursuing’ Alec and his wife Hilaria, I find it difficult to have much sympathy for them, and not just because Alec is a renowned ass. We all remember that ‘rude, thoughtless, little pig’ voicemail right?

After marrying Alec, 29-year-old yoga teacher Hilaria landed a job as a ‘lifestyle correspondent’ for TV show Extra. [Wonder how she got it?]

The couple also gave the show a number of exclusives including the news that she was pregnant, the sex of the baby and even a tour of the tot’s nursery.

And how does Extra describe itself? Extra has the hottest celebrity and entertainment news, photosgossipscandalsvideosgamesmusicmoviestelevisionstar sightings and more!’

So, I’m not sure if the Baldwins realise this but all of those photos, videos and star sightings that Extra is so proud of……………. they come from the paps.

I totally get that being surrounded by photographers every day when you just want to go out for a walk is a nightmare but people like Alec and Hilaria who court the attention and in her case, works for a company that relies on pap pictures, don’t really have a leg to stand on.

Which also makes this recent tweet of hers completely hypocritical: 

Mariah Carey’s Disney fairytale

A Disney themed wedding wouldn’t be my thing but I cannot think of anything more perfect for Mariah Carey.

Everything she does is over the top so it’s no surprise Mimi took over Disneyland yesterday to celebrate her 5th wedding anniversary in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle.

I was at the theme park where there were signs up warning everyone that parts of Fantasyland would be closing at 4.30pm for a private event and I was chatting to an employee (or castmember as they call themselves) who confirmed it was for Mariah and Nick Cannon’s anniversary celebration.

Entertainment Tonight were obviously given the exclusive as they were setting up cameras early and Disneyland staff spent over three hours getting everything perfect for Mariah before the park closed at 8pm and the Carey/Cannon family started celebrating.

I’ve spoken to people in the know who said it’s between $50,000 and $100,000 to hire out the theme park for an event like this, which is just insane, but no expense spared for Mimi!

The couple renewed their vows and celebrated the second birthday of their twins Moroccan and Monroe at the ritzy bash.

These pictures with Roc and Roe are adorable, it’s hard not to love Dembabies

Will Smith blames Twitter for Bieber’s problems, Bieber thanks him on Twitter

After Will Smith cites Twitter as the cause of many of Justin Bieber’s problems, what does Bieber do? Takes to Twitter to thank him!

Will gave an interview to Capital FM in London [listen here] where he said he did just as much stupid stuff as Justin when he was 19 but luckily there was no Twitter or smart phones to capture every moment so he could get away with it in private.

Justin then decided to thank Will by posting a link to Capital FM on Twitter, which kind of goes against what Will was saying …

‘Will Smith is the man! @officialjaden u r cool too 🙂

I’m sure he has his number and could send him a quick text to say thanks but obviously everything has to be done publicly these days.

Speaking of … Justin has decided to keep us all guessing about his relationship with Selena Gomez by posting a picture of them hugging on his Instagram account with the caption

‘You’ve been makin music for too long babe come cuddle’ – her.”

At first I thought this meant they were back together but Beliebers, who know everything there is to know about their idol, have pointed out he’s missing his new tiger tattoo from his left arm so who knows.

He might claim to hate all the attention but it’s pretty obvious Justin loves it.

Lost in Translation….The Rock’s recent injury

I was pretty relieved to see this tweet from The Rock today about his emergency hernia surgery.

‘Surgery a success! Dr repaired 3 hernial tears (fun pain). Superman is on the mend.. #WeFallWeRise’

Not because I’m happy he was rushed to hospital but when he had to pull out of the Pain & Gain premiere in Hollywood on Monday, there was some confusion as to what exactly was wrong with him.

I’m not sure where the message got lost in translation but what most of the press took away from the explanation was that The Rock had injured his penis!

While three hernial tears sounds pretty awful, it seems better than the alternative. I was imagining The Rock having to wear something like the cast Schmidt donned in New Girl when he broke his penis. Or who can forget the Grey’s Anatomy episode when McSteamy had a similar injury.

I’m happy to hear The Rock didn’t suffer the same fate, no one wants to see him have to wear this ….

Justin Bieber’s genius April Fools’ Day prank

Anyone who’s been reading this blog for a while knows I don’t have much time for Justin Bieber. I think he’s been acting like an entitled brat lately but then he went and redeemed himself with this hilarious April Fools’ Day joke.

Bieber’s been messing up a lot in recent times and every time he does, gossip websites have been quick to point it out. To get his own back, Justin tweeted out the number to the TMZ office saying he would be taking fans’ calls.

Cue TMZ getting inundated with calls from over enthusiastic Beliebers while Justin no doubt laughed his little head off somewhere!

One of the reasons I found this so funny is because of TMZ’s reaction. Dax Holt from TMZ tweeted:

Best April fools joke goes 2 @JustinBieber. He tweeted out TMZs phone # saying he would be taking fan calls. Well played Bieber, well played’

‘The phones here at TMZ won’t stop ringing!! #BieberAprilFoolsJoke LOL! So funny.’

We can all appreciate a harmless yet effective April Fools’ Day prank. Although I’m sure the poor person responsible for answering the phones doesn’t agree after being inundated with calls from hysterical Beliebers all day!

And if you don’t find that funny, here’s my all time favourite picture of Justin Bieber which is guaranteed to make you laugh!

Mariah Carey makes everything better

I’ve been battling a bad cold all weekend and wanted to just take to my bed rather than work today but then this gem from Mariah Carey made everything  better!

Mariah Carey captures Easter Bunny Nick Cannon

You can always rely on Mimi to be more OTT than anyone else out there and while other celebrities have shared cute pictures of their kids on Twitter for Easter, Mariah topped them all with this amazing picture of her reclining on top of a captured Easter bunny (ie her long suffering husband Nick Cannon!)

The caption is also pure Mariah: ‘Happy Easter dahhlings…I finally caught the Easter bunny’

If this doesn’t make you laugh, there has got to be something wrong with you.

Happy [belated] Easter all and for a bonus treat, here’s one of my all time favourite Mariah TV appearances. The episode of MTV’s Cribs where she goes on the treadmill in her stilettos.

 

 

Veronica Mars: The Movie

Veronica Mars fans [and I include myself in that category] woke up today to the news that the long awaited movie could finally be about to happen. After a couple of false starts, creator Rob Thomas has come up with the idea of having fans fund the film on Kickstarter  offering various rewards including set visits, premiere tickets and getting Kristen Bell to follow people on Twitter in return for different donations.

The goal is $2 million minimum in 30 days and if this is raised, the movie will shoot THIS SUMMER and be released in 2014. Warner Bros, who own the rights and have been unwilling to invest in the project until now have agreed to cover the rest of the cost of distribution and promotion.

So what’s the plan? According to Rob:

Life has taken Veronica away from Neptune. In the years since spoiling Keith’s chances to be reelected sheriff, Veronica hasn’t taken a case. But something big is about to bring her back home and back to her calling. My goal is to include as many of your favourite characters as possible. It is, after all, time for Veronica’s 10-year high school reunion.”

I’m not quite sure what to think about this whole Kickstarter idea. After all $2 million is chump change to Warner Bros and marketing and distribution costs are sure to surpass it. I think it is less about the money and more about gauging fan support. After all the TV series ended in 2007 so it wouldn’t be too surprising if apart from the core faithful, many casual fans would have lost interest.

However, the page has only been up for a few hours and it’s already passed $1 million [and counting]….

Many commentators are saying, “what exactly do the fans get out of it? Why don’t they get to share in the rewards if they’re funding the movie?”.

I think most fans would agree that the movie is the reward, after all this is what people have been hoping for since cancellation.

And, if the big screen version is half as awesome as this campaign trailer which brings back Kristen (Veronica), Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls), Enrico Colantoni (Keith Mars) and Ryan Hansen (everyone’s favourite douche Dick Casablancas), it’s going to be amazing!

Plus anything that wipes the memory of the subpar season three and proposed season four pilot can only be a good thing.

Check out the season four pilot below

Time to go back and rewatch old episodes I think!
