Apart from that, how was your weekend?
Good morning and hello again. My vacation is over and, as I've used up all my vacation days for a long time to come, I shall now be with you for months and months and months and months. I had a lovely time. My mom was visiting and we went to Cirque and we saw Carrie Fisher's Wishful Drinking. We spent a couple of days watching tennis at the Rexall Centre. (Not as boring live as on TV). Saw the abstract expressionists at the AGO. Went to the Brick Works, where, I'm ashamed to say, I'd never been before. (Their slogan is "Nature - Culture - Community" should pretty much make it our mayor's least favourite place ever). There I bought three big whiskey cask planter thingies for the garden. They are now blocking all access to the already messy garage. The sweetie is super-pleased. Saw the amazing Cave of Forgotten Dreams at the Lightbox. Went to The Ex where I did not have the donut burger. Although it was close. And - because, as you know, I model my life on Justin Bieber's except for the whole Jesus thing - got matching mother-daughter snake tattoos. It was mom's first, but she took it like a champ. Thank you, Brody, at Adrenaline. Also, didn't read as much as I'd planned, but can highly, highly recommend The Last Werewolf. But now it's back to the rich inner lives of the Kardashians and their ilk. Here are some news:
All you need to know about Kim Kardashian's wedding to whatshisname TMZ: "The star-studded guest list included the likes of Ryan Seacrest and his girlfriend Julianne Hough, "Dancing With the Stars" pro Mark Ballas and his date Cheryl Burke, Brody Jenner and his girlfriend Avril Lavigne, dress designer Vera Wang, Demi Lovato, Ciara, NBA star Carmelo Anthony and La La Vasquez and the Lohans ... Dina, Ali and Lindsay. Kim's older sisters Kourtney and Khloe served as maids of honor, while younger sisters Kylie and Kendall were bridesmaids. The ring bearer was Kim's nephew, Mason Disick, who carried wedding bands designed by Lorraine Schwartz, who also designed the 20.5-carat engagement ring. Bruce Jenner walked Kim down the aisle. Kris wore a tailor-made white tuxedo jacket with black pants and a white bow tie by Ermenegildo Zegna. He changed into a traditional black tux for the reception. The dinner was catered by Wolfgang Puck and the bride and groom were introduced and then serenaded by Robin Thicke. Kim wore a Vera Wang gown and reportedly made TWO outfit changes, which were also Vera Wang dresses." Let's never speak of this again.
The Help takes number one at box office The Help made $20.5 million over the weekend, which was a drop of only 21 per cent from its first week, to squish all new-comers. The Rise of the Not-so Cute Monkeys was in second place with $16.3. Spy Kids 47 took third with $12 million and Conan the Unasked-for Remake was in fourth with $10 million. Fright Night was all the way down in place with a sad $7.9 million and One Day made only $5.1 for ninth place. Box Office Mojo.
Simon Cowell wants to berate hopeful youngsters for generations to come Showbiz Spy: "Simon Cowell wants his body to be frozen when he dies. The X Factor boss is planning to have his corpse preserved in ice, in the hope future technology allows him to be thawed out and brought back to life. “It’s an insurance policy. If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work. But if it does work, I’ll be happy,” he said. “If it’s possible — and I think it will be – why not have a second crack? Does that sound crazy? “I think it’s a good idea. I have a feeling that if I don’t do it, I could regret it in 300 years.” The cryogenic freezing process costs up to $240,000 and is offered by two companies in the US. So far over 1,000 people have signed up for the scheme."
No, don't do that NY Post: "Bret Michaels and Donald Trump are in talks to develop a new reality show called “Something To Believe In.” Sources tell Page Six it would feature the rocker traveling across the country, helping people who face adversity in their lives. A rep for The Donald said: “Mr. Trump thinks Bret is a wonderful guy. [He] wants to consider it.” Michaels, a winner of Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” will serenade a couple on tomorrow’s episode of “Bachelor Pad” on ABC."
Dexter likes them young "Dexter star Michael C. Hall has a secret new girlfriend and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned she is 15 years his junior. The 40-year-old actor has been having secret trysts with Vanessa Abrue, a Showtime staffer, and the two have been going to great lengths to keep the relationship low-key since they started dating in March - just three months after his ex, Jennifer Carpenter, filed for divorce from him. "No one would ever suspect these two were together because she isn't what anyone would expect Michael to be with," the insider said. "They hardly go out together but when they do it's always with a group of people so no one would suspect he's with someone." According to the source, Vanessa brags about dating Michael to her friends but uses the code names "Ginger" or "my friend" when she speaks about him in front of other people. The young brunette bears a striking resemblance to Hall's 31-year-old ex-wife and Dexter co-star, Carpenter, who he was married to for nearly two years."
