21Strawberry Shortcake’s Daughter: All Grown Up!

Jessica Alba, Honor Alba Warren

I’m just kidding!  Jessica Alba has gone red.  What do you think of it?

I think I’ve said this before, but as a rule I think women look best when their hair color is somewhere in the range of what they were born with.  Jessica has such a beautiful, dark complexion — she’s so striking — and red (pink?) doesn’t do her any favors, in my opinion.

Alba was out and about in Bev Hills today with her Adorable — yes, she is Adorable with a capital A — daughter, Honor Marie.  Honor is clearly at that stage that all kids reach where they discover they can move themselves from point A to point B and will no longer tolerate being toted around.  God, I hate that stage.

3Amy Winehouse Comes Out as a Jewmaican

Lately, it seems like Amy Winehouse is less troubled.  We don’t see daily pictures of a bra-clad Amy stumbling around the streets of Camden with a bag of crisps in her sore-ridden hands.  So, it makes one curious:  What is Ames doing these days?  Uh, rapping.

Winehouse has decided to try a new genre of music.  Lyrics such as, “Listen. I can write ten raps a night, it don’t matter but you know that it’s tight,” and “I will never wear my hair out unless I am the best.  Oh snap, I never knew that. Well I know that I’m a Jew. Well, a Jewmaican,” coupled with a bunch of unintelligible rambling clearly equals “recipe for success”.

Now all we need is a new rapper name for Winehouse.  Any ideas?  L.L. Cool Jew?  Ugh … sorry.

2If You Didn’t Hate Screech After Seeing Him on Celebrity Fit Club …

Beet told us the other day that Dustin Diamond, better known as Saved by the Bell‘s Screech, has bundled together a collection of his delusions and found a publisher willing to call it a book.

This morning Double D (and he is a complete boob) was on Fox 5 to plug his new book.  He shared a story of when an extra on the SBTB set irritated him and he responding by pissing in her purse.  Oh. The. Hilarity.

If you saw Double D on VH1′s Celebrity Fit Club, you know that he’s a big fat liar (emphasis on fat since he kept leaving the show every other episode), but I’d still buy his book just to see what type of shit he’s trying to peddle.  Well, I’d buy his book if I could get it on my Kindle.  For … like, a quarter.

11I Sure as Hell Hope This Isn’t True

Janet Charlton is reporting — and my only solace is that she was kinda sorta wrong about John Mayer and Kristin Cavallari — that Ben Stiller and his wife of 12 years Christine Taylor have split up!

It’s been common knowledge that they put their $12.5M Hollywood manse on the market, but Charlton claims it’s because their marriage is over.  According to her, Stiller is devastated and trying to get Christine back, but they are living apart at this time.

Could this be true?  I saw Stiller on Ellen about a month ago and he talked so affectionately of his wife.  I love these two together and wanted them to have a Hollywood happy ending just like Ben’s parents, Jerry Stiller and Ann Meara who have been married for 55 years.

31Quotables

“People in the White House…actually object[ed] to giving the author J.K. Rowling a presidential medal because the Harry Potter books encouraged witchcraft.”

Former George W. Bush speechwriter Matt Latimer in his new book titled, Speech-less:  Tales of a White House Survivor in which he explains that GWB refused to award a presidential medal to Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling because her books were clearly promoting evil.

As an aside:  I was looking for a pic of our former Prez and my son said, “Now, Mommy, George W. Bush is like, locked away in his house somewhere far away, right?”  Even he fears this dude.

11Drew Barrymore’s Whip It Premiere

Last night was the premiere of Drew Barrymore’s new movie and directorial debut, Whip It.  She arrived on the red carpet fondling co-star Ellen Page and cuddling up with her old E.T. director, Steven Spielberg.  Also there was Drew’s other co-star, Juliette “I Can’t Believe You And Your Yellow Teeth Were Once Engaged to Brad Pitt” Lewis and Barrymore’s Flower Films partner Nancy Juvonen (you may remember her for her controversial biceps). On-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Long was nowhere to be found.

Now, I know a lot of you thought it was just the result of some weight-loss, but I still think Drew’s face looks completely retooled ala PTA mom.  Gladly, she listened to the masses and got rid of her two-tone hair.
