Popbitch (sub. req.) says that Renée Zellweger has had her armpits botoxed so she wouldn’t sweat during the premiere and press junkets for her Bridget Jones sequel. And in London, “going for a prayer break” means running to the bathroom to do a bump of coke. The term refers to Destiny’s Child’s constant prayer breaks during their recent promotional tour in England. Use air quotes around “prayer breaks” when you tell a friend.
Yesterday, while in Wilmington, Delaware, shooting stuff for the third season of their Simple Life reality show, Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie stopped into Small Wonder Daycare center to mix with some of the few humans who haven’t yet heard of them. They changed diapers, loaded kids onto a bus, and pushed strollers. We’re pretty sure the last charitable diaper Sharon Osbourne changed was Ozzie’s. According to a nurse at the center, some of the kids sang while Hilton did “a little dance.” Those kids on a bus. A new Fox show, The Preschool Life? (Yahoo)
In a rare moment of almost lucid writing, E! Online’s gossip Ted Casablanca aka Bruce Bibby mentions in his “The Awful Truth” column that he was at the Mosaic Hotel the other night to watch WOW’s House of Clues on Court TV. (Read it or not)
Meanwhile, the WOW Report wrote this earlier today and decided not to post it:
When Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake were “ambushed” the other night by two men who jumped from a concealed hiding place and “attacked” the couple on a “dark, deserted street late at night,” it was actually two stalkerazzi who were lying in wait for them in front of the Chateau Marmont on busy Sunset. Diaz leaped to her own and Timberlake’s defense (he gets more pussier every day) and landed a couple of Charlie’s Angels chops to one of the photographer’s neck and snatched his camera. Blah blah, no arrests or charges brought. What’s really important is Diaz lost a shoe during the scuffle. Watch for it on eBay. (Yahoo)
But then our fellow LA blogger Defamer ran the official defensive explanation of the fracas from the stars’ publicists Ken Sunshine and Brad Cafarelli, so what the hell.
Oh, the camera-snatching was self-defense! Being a celebrity does indeed justify the hazard pay. Every trip down the red carpet is like a suicide run through Falluja! We commend Diaz’s courage in protecting her partner from this latest shutterbug danger.
