32Michelle Tanner

A healthy-weighted Olsen twin departs a West Village tanning salon.

Okay, you guys are gonna give me a huge amount of shit for this, but I have to say that, as she gets to a normal weight, I kind of understand why she felt so much pressure to stay at a ridiculously skinny weight. She is such a very tiny person (I think she’s honestly like 4’11″) that even a small weight gain makes her look really squat. At that height, you can’t just gain 10 or 20 pounds and have it not significantly impact your appearance, and the pictures we’ve seen of her lately have made that painfully clear. Not that she’s gained anywhere near 20 pounds. But still. I’m not suggesting she go back to her old weight, and I don’t (repeat: don’t) think she looks fat, but being at a normal weight makes her look very, well, normal, which is exactly how celebrities do not want to look.

13Yup, She’s There!

Photogs caught Mandy Moore leaving the Doctors Hospital in Augusta, Georgia, where she’s visiting her former flame, Adam Goldstein (aka DJ AM).

Aw, what a sweetheart. My hatred for Mandy has been lifted, but just for today. I reserve the right to reclaim it whenever I see fit.

8Black Tie, Baby!!!

Some gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS dresses at the Metropolitan Opera 125th Season Opening Night Gala at Lincoln Plaza tonight.

This kind of makes up for the fact that the Emmy dresses were such snoozers. Kind of.

The star of the night, IMHO, is underage love of my life and aspiring haute couture model Taylor Momsen, who looked unbelievably stunning in a phenomenal dress. Who made that? It is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, and Taylor pulls it off flawlessly. I ::heart:: her.

46Dude, When Did Amy Poehler Get So Fat?

I mean, I’m not endorsing anorexia or anything, but, sheesh, Amy, looks are important in this business.

On the Emmy red carpet last night.

10Bill Clinton Talks Politics on The View

This set of clips from Slick Willy’s appearance on The View — put together by a (disclosed) McCain/Palin supporter — is worth watching, because in the final minute and a half the former President says an awful lot of things that sound like a quiet endorsement for John McCain. Clinton says he’ll be voting for Obama, “because I’m a loyal Democrat,” but then proceeds to offer some unmitigated compliments to John McCain.

“The reality is the girls and I are all together … Holly shares my bed on a nightly basis … Are there going to be changes in the relationships? I’m sure there are going to be. I think that in the future, the girls are going to, in time, be dating others and moving out of the mansion, and when that happens we will not be keeping it a secret.”

Hugh Hefner, on the recent rumors of Holly and Kendra dating other men.

You know what?

I believe the old man. And I haven’t run these cheating rumors on this site because I firmly believe they are bullshit.

None of these girls are dumb enough to be fooling around behind Hugh Hefner’s back. And he’s not going to allow it to look like that. If they were broken up, and the girls were seeing other people, Hef would have made an announcement about the break-up rather than allow people to speculate about his girlfriends cheating on him. I think all these rumors are total bullshit.
