24MUCH Better!



Apparently someone from her management team read my little rant about how she was dressed last week, because 12-year-old Abigail Breslin was back to looking like the adorable little girl that she is at the NYC premiere of Marley and Me last night. Disaster averted. Phew!

“I talked to Jeremy on the phone, and he told me that he discovered that he had a very high level of mercury. So my understanding is that he is leaving show business to pursue a career as a thermometer.”

Playwright David Mamet, discussing Jeremy Piven’s abrupt decision to quit his lead role in Broadway’s Speed the Plow, citing high levels of mercury. Mamet wrote the play, which will continue with a replacement actor. It’s been rumored that Piven’s hard-partying ways are the real reason he couldn’t keep up with the rigorous schedule of a Broadway play.

20Frances Bean Cobain’s in the Market for Some Real Estate


Hey, if you’ve got the money, I suppose now’s the time to spend it on real estate — prices are low, right? Low like $6.5M, which is what Frances Bean Cobain’s looking to spend on a SoHo penthouse.

It’s not every day a 16-year-old shows up with a broker to check out a $6.5 million penthouse condo. But that’s what Frances Bean Cobain did recently when she stopped by 115 Mercer St. to peruse its glassy duplex with 2,500 square feet of terraces.

She “seemed very sweet,” a source said of the daughter of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. “She said that she was looking for her mother.”

The unit has three bedrooms, 3½ baths and a glass atrium. We’re told that a potential buyer of legal age, designer Marc Jacobs, has also seen the property.

When I was 16, my mom sent me on errands too. As soon as I got my drivers license, I had to do things like return the movies to Blockbuster, pick up milk, drop off the dry-cleaning, take the cat to the vet, and check out $7M pieces of Manhattan real estate. So annoying!

42Let’s Talk About Some Batman Casting Decisions

The Sun is reporting today that Eddie Murphy will be playing the role of The Riddler in the new Batman flick, tentatively being titled Gotham. This is not a good start to the new movie in my mind, because I hate Eddie Murphy and I think he’s a total asshole who treats women like dirt and abandons his babies. I have no idea if he’d be good in the role and I don’t care. I will be WAY less psyched about seeing it if he’s in it. Ew, ew, ew. I hope this is a lie.

Other Batman castings: Shia LaBeouf as Robin (confirmed) and Rachel Weisz as Catwoman (rumored).

Christian Bale and Michael Caine will be reprising their roles.
