We've been pleasantly light on Paris Hilton news in recent weeks (say, compared to when she was in the news thrice daily), but that DUI that won't go away is apparently rearing its ugly head. We heard the rumor that Paris could face time for her repeated offenses, but I figured it highly unlikely that she would land in the clink. Today, the news broke that the city prosecutors working on her case will request that she be sentenced to 45 days in the big house, followed by time wearing an anklet monitoring her body's alcohol intake. I'm still skeptical that she'll face hard time, but boy do I love using slang words for jail!
Jenny McCarthy was on The View this morning talking some serious and not so serious topics. First she dished on American Idol (she's a Blake fan - her boyfriend Jim is a Jordin fan) and then she opened up about her son's Autism. Jenny has already written two bestselling books about pregnancy and motherhood and she revealed today that she is working on a new book about autism in children. Her 5-year-old son Evan has been diagnosed with the condition, and Jenny wants to reach out to other moms by sharing her own journey. Here's more:
"I just want moms ... who have children out there with autism ... to know that I am coming back in a few months with this book, and I am planning on using my big, giant, controversial mouth to blow the lid off a lot of things related to autism to give moms hope," she said. "It is so needed."
The book, called Louder Than Words, is set to come out in September. It's great that Jenny is willing to share her life to help others. She always has a fresh and honest take on pretty much everything she does!
Gracing the cover of the UK May issue of Elle magazine with recycled images from the US version of August 2006, it's easy to see that Keira Knightley has a lot going for her. In addition to her stunning beauty, Keira's already an Academy award nominated actress and has risen to fame with the help of the Pirates franchise. However, at only 22, Keira is already learning the consequences of being famous. In the interview, Keira gets serious about the darker aspects of celebrity and why she's considering leaving the industry. Here are highlights:
- 'You know,' she says, 'acting was the only thing I ever wanted to do. But, to be honest, I can see myself in five years or whatever just giving the whole thing up, I would. I'd just do something else and move on. I can see things getting to the point where I just can't do this anymore.'
- 'All those pictures of celebrities. Are they fat? Are they thin? Have they got spots? Young female celebrities. Girls like me in magazines. All those paparazzi pictures. It' just horrible.'
- 'I think I just have to move away or give it up altogether,' she says. 'I couldn't have kids in the situation I'm in now. But I could just do something else. That's probably what's going to happen. I'm just not so hungry any more. I made a decision very recently that I want a life instead.'
We can't blame Keira for wanting to escape from the paparazzi, but we can't imagine she's already ready for retirement. It looks like we'll just have to check out the new Pirates movie to catch her on the big screen while we still can.

Jake G's been laying pretty low since everyone started whispering about his relationship with Reese. The two haven't been caught out in public together yet (you know we would be all over that...), but getting cute Jake all by his lonesome is a treat in and of itself. Seriously though, I feel like we've been writing about this supposed romance for-ev-er. There are still rumors of stuff like highway yogurt eating, so I'm not ready to write these two over before they start. But come on, are we really going to have to wait until the release of Rendition to see how they interact on the red carpet? I'm not nearly that patient.
Liev was nominated earlier this week for a Drama Desk Award for his performance in Talk Radio but he was more interested in talking about his pregnant girlfriend. When asked if she was experiencing any cravings he said, "No. She's great. In fact, I've never seen anyone handle a pregnancy so well. She's amazing." He's obviously still really excited but he and Naomi are taking things easy when it's coming to planning for their little bundle of joy. They have yet to find out the sex, come up with names, or build a nursery. "We're just rollin' with it," he says. Looks like there's reason to rush. Liev said he's working until June 24th and then he's off to be a Daddy!
Drew was outside the Ed Sullivan Theatre last night in a gorgeous red dress that looks like a close cousin of the one she wore the night before! The dress looks great - the make-up not so much. Perhaps she should check out BellaSugar considering she's gonna be the latest Cover Girl. She was stopping back by her pal Dave's to promote her new film Lucky You with Eric Bana. The film is an exploration of love and loss, which after two marriages and quite a few relationships, Drew knows quite a lot about. Here's more:
"But I think generally in life, you know, what relationships really boil down to is what are these two people dealing with and how do they mirror each other and how do they sort of, you know, reveal the truth to each other and bring out the best in each other?" she said. "And that's what this is an interesting exploration of. It's fun because it's a drama and it's a character piece. You know, the beginning of a new era for me and I'm just so privileged to be in this movie. It was so much fun to do."

Yup, summer is on its way. Matthew McConaughey is topless jogging in Malibu. Sure, he jogs topless all year round all over the world, but the Malibu bandana jog? It's a seasonal thing. (See, the last time we saw him in this outfit/blue bandana combo? September.) So Happy Summer! And here's to seeing MM jogging. Every. Single. Day.

Kate is still having a fabulous time and looking amazing with James and their pals in Hawaii. For a while last fall while going through her split from Orlando, Kate was looking scarily thin. Now, she's found this wonderful relationship with James, and she seems so much better. According to a close source, "Kate stopped partying, started working out more, eating a bit more and generally doesn't care about her weight so much because she's happy." Good to know she's back on her feet. By the way she's looking with James and how enamored she is with that baby, we can't help but wonder if she's got plans to settle down with her cute man!
