Blake Lively turns 21 XOXO

Blake Lively paid homage to the "roaring 20's" by having a 1920's themed 21st birthday party. Blake, who turned 21 on Aug 25, held the soiree on Sept 6 at the New York Palace Hotel.

Life and Style got the party exclusive from the event which had a guest list that included Blake's Gossip Girls cast mates and boyfriend/co-star Penn Badgley as well as James Franco and Michael Buble who seranded the lass with Happy Birthday.

Blake also revealed to the mag that if she were not an actress she would be an event planner;

“I love to plan parties,” Blake tells Life & Style.

Us Against The World

I have been a Westlife fan for just about 9 years now and to this day I still remember how i felt when I first heard If I Let You Go on Love FM and then saw the video a couple months after the fact. I also remember they were like Europe's answer to the Backstreet Boys - but with sexier accents.

They have never reached Backstreet popularity in the US but in Europe and especially the UK they are the end all to pop music.

To this day I still cry when I hear a new Westlife song because they are usually so pure in voice and lyrics.

This is the most recent video they released that brought me to tears. It's a Thank You of sorts to their fans like me.

Who's the Daddy????

This seems to be the #1 question on the lips of ppl who have started watching what is soon to be a cult hit 90210. I've had many conversations this week about who Kelly's baby's daddy could be and I've narrowed it down to one person.

Steve Sanders.

Why you ask?? Because it's the obviously not obvious choice. Brandon would be too obvious and Dylan even more so especially since the original 90210 ended with Kelly and Dylan together again.

Plus lets face it, out of Jason Priestley, Luke Perry and Ian Ziering, which of the three may be the most 'struggling' actor?

Ian Ziering you say?

After his stint on Dancing with the Stars he's had a couple of hosting gigs but I have not heard much about much else. So that is my theory. Steve is the daddy.

Whoever the daddy is will be revealed on this week's episode so I guess we will have to wait and see.

What say you???

Rebecca Romjin is definitely Preggers

Former model and actress Rebecca Romjin made her first public appearance since announcing her pregnancy in July.

Rebecca and her husband Jerry O'Connell are expecting twin girls later this year. Being big, blonde and beautiful hasn't stopped her from taking some time out to shop and eat however. The X-Men actress was seen lunching at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills.

The Tiz has the cutest little puppy!!!

Ashley Tisdale and her boyfriend, boybander Jared Murillo were spotted at LAX this past Friday.

Now I'm not a huge Ashley Tisdale fan, as her fanbase is just a tad bit younger than I am, I must admit she was good in High School Musical which of course I only watched because my mean little sister made me (at least thats what I tell myself would have happened if I had a sister to make myself feel better about watching it).

I am however a huge fan of her pet pooch. She is simply adorable.

Kanye West Arrested

Kanye was arrested Thursday after an altercation with a paparazzo at LAX International Airport. He was charged with vandalism after supposedly damaging a paparazzo’s camera that was valued at $10,000.

I really don't get the impression that much is going to come of this. The paparazzi carry these things too far sometimes and they get to close just to get a good shot. If your camera can be damaged by the celebrity - then you are too close. Deal with it.

Rihanna is Vogue 2008

Rihanna did a really good performance of Madonna's 1990 hit Vogue.

This was very surprising to me because I saw the VMA performance of Disturbia and was disappointed. Rihanna sounded tired and out of breath, not sure if it was because that performance was actually live. Not saying that the vogue performance was enhanced but there was a noticeable difference.

However, I'm sure Madonna would have been pleased by Rih-Rih's version.

Have a look and see for youself.

Jessica Declares Herself

Jessica Alba has participated in the Declare Yourself youth voter initiative which encourages young persons to register and be heard in the election process.

Jessica, who has already declared herself to be on the Obama/Biden campaign trail by supporting the candidates at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) two weeks ago, made the following statement about Declare Yourself:

If you don’t register and vote and make a difference, and hopefully change the bad things that are happening in our country, you are essentially just binding and muzzling yourself.

The new mom went on to say,

“I really don’t see the point in not registering to vote. We sign up for MySpace pages and Facebook pages, and download music off the internet. The least people can do is register to vote online, actually making a difference in their world, not just making their lives a little bit cooler. It makes more sense to spend your time making a change in society—and it actually doesn’t take that much time! It takes more time to make a music playlist than it does to register to vote.”

Below is a picture of Jessica and friends, including Rosario Dawson, Fergie and Kerry Washington en route to the DNC.


More *N Sync to come

I'm majorly excited about this - if it's actually true. I grew up during the height of the boy-band phenomenon, Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees, Westlife, Plus One, O-Town, 3Deep, BBMak, name them, I knew them.

So now this year seems to be bringing a re-emergence of the boy-band craze. The Jonas Brothers are doing their thing and appealing to a new era of tweens while old staples like Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block are out again and doing wonders for their way-past-post-pubescent fans.

And now it seems like *N Sync may be on this path as well. The rumour mill is buzzing with the news that this reunion may be happening sooner rather than later.

N Sync is contractually obliged to deliver two more albums and band member, Lance Bass has alluded that the group intends to fulfill this commitment.

Bass said:

“We’re definitely itching to do some music. We’ve always discussed it. It’s always a possibility and we still owe some records to the record companies. I’m serious! could be possibly a year, it could be five years from now. Depends on everyone’s schedules kind of aligning together.”

The group made their last public appearance in 2002. Since then each member has embarked on solo endeavours. Most popular of the group of course has been Justin Timberlake, who imo had the best album of 2006 FutureSex/LoveSounds.

The question still remains, will N Sync be able to recapture their past successes?

Nights in Rodanthe

I don't know where I have been living recently but I sooooo did not know that they were making Nicolas Sparks' Nights in Rodanthe into a movie.

Nicholas Sparks has to be one of the best (if not the best) romance authors out there. He has been my favourite for the past few years and every last one of his books has made me shed a significant amount of tears.

For those of you who are not familiar with his work, three of his books hav already been made into major motion pictures - Message in a Bottle, A Walk to Remember and, of course, The Notebook.

Here's what IMDB had to say about Nights:

In "Nights in Rodanthe," Oscar nominee Diane Lane stars as Adrienne Willis, a woman with her life in chaos, who retreats to the tiny coastal town of Rodanthe, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, to tend to a friend's inn for the weekend. Here she hopes to find the tranquility she so desperately needs to rethink the conflicts surrounding her -- a wayward husband who has asked to come home, and a teenaged daughter who resents her every decision. Almost as soon as Adrienne gets to Rodanthe, a major storm is forecast and a guest named Dr. Paul Flanner (Richard Gere) arrives. The only guest at the inn, Flanner is not on a weekend escape but rather is there to face his own crisis of conscience. Now, with the storm closing in, the two turn to each other for comfort and, in one magical weekend, set in motion a life-changing romance that will resonate throughout the rest of their lives.

It's definitely on my to-do list.

Ellen had a Beautiful Wedding

Everyone by now would have heard that Ellen married Portia de Rossi over the summer but Ellen gave an intimate view into the happy couple's day on her show Monday.

So beautiful.

Halle and her Family out and about

Now seriously. There should be a law against two pulchritudinous persons reproducing together. Seriously.

The gorgeous Halle Berry (sans make-up), her equally-if-not-more gorgeous boyfriend (fiance) and their precious baby girl Nahla were seen out and about in NYC yesterday.

Mommy and Daddy were in town for Calvin Klein's 40th anniversary celebrations which were held the night before. Gabriel, for those who live under a rock, is on Calvin Klein's payroll.

This is the first time Halle and Gabriel have been spotted together in recent times but everything looks to be good from what I see. (Like I really know anything!!)

90210 - Week 2

Ok so the hype has slowed and we're off to a good start. Anyone else watching or am I still the only lame-o??

Although based on some conversations I've had this week, this show will probably have some closet fans especially from persons in my age group. For some strange reason they prefer not to admit that they watch teen shows.

Heck if I could my life would be a teen show so I'm swallowing up all the teen dramas I can.

America's Getting Old Top Model

So based on the ratings of the highly hyped Cycle 11 premiere last Wednesday, America seems to be tired of Tyra and Co. and hardly seems phased by the show's first transgender contestant.

The episode was down 11% from its Cycle 10 premiere in February and 32% from its premiere last September and quite frankly I'm not surprised.

The episode was too full of gimmicks for my liking. Tyra and Co. had a Star Trek/Space Odessy theme full with them being beamed to and from shoot locations and the contestants had a space themed photo-shoot.

I hope they plan on pulling out all the stops this season because my attention is quickly drifting.

Posh has a Fierce New Do

I don't know how many times I've used the word 'fierce' with reference to this woman but believe it is always applicable.

This new haircut was debuted over the weekend at the 2008 Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week and Mrs. Beckham worked her angles in ways that even Miss Tyra would have been proud.

Victoria was spotted with Jennifer Lopez who was also in attendance at the Marc Jacobs fashion show looking back to her old pre-twins size.

One question I have to ask though, why is Vitoria's face a different colour from the rest of her body?

Too make fake bake?

Honor makes a mom out of Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba was seen leaving her NYC hotel room with her 2-month old baby girl, Honor Marie.

I'm not really sure what Jessica is in NYC for but who cares....look at precious Honor Marie.

Channing Tatum is off the market

boo hoo hoo

This news has basically devastated me. After Step Up I was MAJORLY in love with this guy and with every clench of his jaw my infactuation became deeper.

Channing Tatum (the object of my affection) became engaged to his Step Up co-star, Jenna Dewan, over the weekend in Hawaii after what I am sure was the most romantic proposal and weekend ever. The two have been dating since filming Step Up in 2006.

The good thing about him being a celeb and me being a mere mortal however is that I can completely swoon over him and obsess over him and not be hurting a fly so this obsession is sure to continue.

Good luck to the happy twosome.

Who watched it?

What were your thoughts?

Did it live up to the hype?

I personally loved it and I kept getting more excited as the characters were being introduced; Hannah Zuckerman-Vasquez (Aundrea's daughter) read the news; Erin Silver (Kelly and David's sis); Nat still owns The Pit.

I loved it...All i have to do now is stop calling it Beverly Hills and get accustomed to calling it 90210.
