Isla Fisher stopped by The Early Show today in NYC, then made her way over to Live With Regis and Kelly. The actress chatted about her new role voicing a reptile in Rango as she made the morning show rounds. She and her costar Abigail Breslin have been around the world promoting the animated film since premiering it in LA with their leading man, Johnny Depp. Isla got a brief break from her press duties over the weekend though. She returned to the States to attend the Vanity Fair post-Oscars party with Sacha Baron Cohen in LA, then packed her bags to head east with her infant daughter yesterday.
Jennifer Aniston made the morning show rounds for Just Go With It in NYC today. She stopped by Good Morning America to talk about her famous Rachel haircut and also visited The Early Show with anchor Erica Hill. Erica brought Jennifer a few early gifts, including Snooki's new book and a wig, ahead of her 42nd birthday tomorrow, since Jennifer has apparently been hooked on Jersey Shore since the first episode. Another of MTV's reality stars, Heidi Montag, makes a cameo in Jen's romantic comedy. Heidi, however, wasn't at the star-studded premiere on Tuesday and is now saying she was absent after being banned from the event by Jen herself.
Today Arizona shooter Jared Loughner's ex-girlfriend, Kelsey Hawkes, spoke out, but now two very different stories are spreading. A Daily Mail interview quotes her saying their breakup, six years ago, was the start of his mental spiral downward.
"Something changed in him, he was not the same person when I told him it was over . . . I remember his face clearly — he just looked like he had nothing to live for . . . Jared was a normal person. It all stopped when we broke up."
This article is quoted on MSNBC, the New York Post, and numerous other outlets, yet nothing about it seems accurate if you watch the above interview from CBS's Early Show today. She sounds as surprised, shocked, and horrified as everyone else. "Back then he was completely different of a person," she says, "very caring, very gentle, very sweet, kind, a little quiet, but altogether pretty great guy." While she admits she's heard no good news about him in the last five years, she never once indicates, even infers, their breakup was a catalyst for his personality change.

Sarah Jessica Parker was up this morning for a stop by The Early Show. She's out and about talking up Sex and the City 2 before its release next week — we caught up with her at a press conference over the weekend, where she discussed her character Carrie Bradshaw's latest endeavors and accidentally spilled the beans on the gastrointestinal issues Kristin Davis endured while filming in Morocco. Their new movie is sure to include all sorts of great outfits that keep with Charlotte's preppy past, Carrie's eclectic wardrobe, and more, even if they aren't all recession friendly. One great deal is over on Geek, where they're giving away an HP TouchSmart tm2!
Jennifer Garner kicked off work on the set of Butter in LA this week, and today she popped up on the East Coast for a morning of shopping and chatting.
