Sarah Jessica Parker continued her Bitten Tour at Mt. Prospect Mall in Chicago on Friday. Even after years of having to smile for the cameras, SJP looks genuinely happy to greet her fans at the autograph session. Judging from her many expressions at the event it looks like she had no problem getting animated with everyone who came out to see her promote her line. I hope she enjoys the SJP-centric red carpet time, because her perfume Covet is finally available. Bella wants to know -- which celebrity scent are you most excited about?

Ben Affleck was seen alone in Santa Monica this weekend while the ladies in his life headed out of town. It's amazing how handsome Ben can be with just a little grooming. We bet he's excited about his best friend's success this weekend. The Bourne Ultimatum broke multiple box office records including surpassing the other Bournes' opening weekends. Looks like we weren't the only ones counting down to Bourne this summer!
Victoria Beckham had a girls' night at Koi with her sister while dapper David dressed up to sign autographs after a Galaxy match in Toronto. Becks may still be sidelined, but he and Posh continue to make their mark in America. Their extremely popular his-and-hers fragrances called "Intimately Beckham" are finally coming to stores stateside. Posh is also showing her appreciation for America already. She said,
"I love the American attitude; it's very positive. I love the fact that everybody here seems very patriotic; I think that's a very strong positive message to send out for children. . . . There's so much for the kids to do. The weather's great. We are having such a wonderful time."
It's great to see that this family is embracing our culture, especially since David was a little wary about leaving Europe. We can't wait to keep seeing what these two have in store for us.

As I mentioned earlier, Ashley Olsen is Marie Clarie's September cover girl -- and she looks gorgeous! While she did wear a little bit of color for the cover shot, the rest of it is her standard black and white fare. I can't complain though because the photos are phenomenal. In the interview she talked about her relationship with MK. When I was little I always wanted to be a twin and it sounds like MK and A have an awesome twinsie connection. Here's more:
- On Mary-Kate's Former Eating Issues:“That situation was more about how destructive the media can be to a person emotionally, to their identity, their public persona. It’s really sick."
- On Their Twin Connection:“I know when she’s hurting, I know when she’s going through something, I know when she’s happy — whether I”m with her or not, I know. We both carry the weight of each other. When she’s doing really well, maybe I’m not doing so well. It’s weird that we’re never at the same place — we just kind of balance each other out.”

While her co-stars were getting down on Vegas tabletops, Katherine Heigl was showing off her red Valentino bag as she ran errands in LA. She's definitely been keeping herself busy this summer with lots of different projects, but Katherine is ready to add producer to her resume. She and her mother/manager are set to make their production debut in a comedy that Katherine will also star in. After the success of Knocked Up, it makes perfect sense that Katherine wants to strike while the iron is hot. We just hope she can bring some fun back into Grey's next season.

Rachel Bilson was still getting some good use out of her new flat iron and perfecting that perfect I'm getting into my car now, bye look in LA over the weekend. Sure these pictures of R-Bils aren't exactly thrilling, but she looks especially cute here, right? Just effortless and simple and cool. Fab certainly thinks so -- check out her adorable outfit (and hot bag) here.
Newlyweds Rebecca and Jerry seemed happy as ever dressed as twinsies for a ride on their bicycle built for two this weekend. Their workout doesn't look quite as intense as say, Tobey Maguire's, but they do look like they're having a lot of fun. These two are obviously making the most of their time together when they aren't hard at work on Carpoolers and Ugly Betty.
Speaking of Rebecca's hit show, the crew over at Mode Magazine is expanding again, this time to include Vanessa Williams's ex Rick Fox. The athlete turned actor sure is stepping up as he goes from celebrity gossip rag, Dirt to fashion elite Mode.
This weekend Grey's Anatomy's Sara Ramirez helped her ex-co-star Kate Walsh celebrate her last days of being a bachelorette with friends at Tao. Looks like they had a blast based on these pictures! The women spent the weekend gambling, sunning, working out and partying. People reports:
After a quick workout, the actress then got a surprise in her hotel room: a visit from two male strippers.
Later, continuing their Vegas blitz, the ladies were spotted dining on sushi rolls, lobster wontons and Kobe beef at Tao Restaurant. "You could tell they were all really content. Kate looked really happy and couldn't stop smiling," an onlooker said.
"Sara (Ramirez) even got on the table and started dancing," the source said. "Everyone was laughing and clapping."
Sounds like Kate's friends threw her a perfectly wild bachelorette weekend. Good to know the ladies of Seattle Grace don't take themselves as seriously as their on-screen counterparts do.
