30Jennifer vs. Jennifer

I’d like to begin this piece by stating that I think it’s absolutely absurd that someone’s trying to make a movie based off the Greg Behrendt book He’s Just Not That Into You. It’s a great book that revolutionized my dating life, but it’s a stupid premise for a movie. And I hate that they’re doing this.

That said, the cast includes Jennifer Aniston, Ginnifer Goodwin, Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Connelly.

And word on the street is that the two Jennifers did NOT get along well during filming. In fact, Connelly will not appear with the rest of the cast on an upcoming Marie Claire cover, because Aniston reportedly threatened to pull out of the shoot if Connelly participated. (Johansson will not appear, either, as she was apparently unavailable for the shoot.)

According to Life & Style:

Connelly… will not be included in an upcoming cover shoot for Marie Claire magazine that will feature Aniston… and her other co-stars from the October comedy, Drew Barrymore and Ginnifer Goodwin. “Word is, Aniston threatened to pull out if Jennifer was part of the cover,” says an insider familiar with the movie’s shoot. “It was all about getting Jennifer Aniston front and center and looking as sexy as possible.”

So what’s Jen’s beef with [Connelly]? While Aniston’s rep denies that there’s any discord between the actresses, they just didn’t hit it off, says the insider: “There was no camaraderie between those two whatsoever. They didn’t seem like friends in the slightest.”

Aniston’s probably just bitter because Jennifer Connelly has a happy marriage and kids, and Aniston’s stuck trying to get John “Player” Mayer to settle down.

23Katie Holmes to Make Broadway Debut

It’s been a long time since Katie Holmes was doing live theater at her high school in Toledo, Ohio.

But the 29-year-old will hit the Broadway stage — her first stage performance since Toledo — on September 18, in a revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons.

No doubt Tom Cruise is ecstatic that he’ll have an excuse to spend so much time around Broadway boys, now.

10Gettin’ Hitched!

George Takei and his longtime partner, Brad Altman, showed up at West Hollywood City Hall on Tuesday morning to get their marriage license.

“Today we are all here to give flesh and blood reality to that ruling. We are going to make history,” said Takei. “Congratulations to all of us and may equality live long and prosper.”

Every county in California was required to start issuing new gender-neutral marriage licenses Tuesday with spaces for “Party A” and “Party B” where “bride” and “groom” used to be.

Hooray!

13Joan Rivers Continues to Rock My World

The fabulous Ms. Rivers was kicked off the UK talk show Loose Women for calling Russell Crowe a “piece of fucking shit.” She warned the producers to bleep her, but the show is live and there’s no bleeping. Joan was asked to leave at the commercial break.

Says Joan in apology: “Yes, I swore, and I’m so fucking sorry. No one told me the TV show Loose Women was a reality show and that I would be voted off. It’s funny: offstage, I hardly ever use profanity. My favorite four-letter word is ‘shop.’”

I ::heart:: Joan Rivers.

18Spotted!

Kate Hudson and Lance Armstrong, leaving her West Village townhome on their way to an Iron Maiden concert at Madison Square Garden.

I had no idea that Iron Maiden was still touring. The most I know about Iron Maiden is from that Wheatus song, “Teenage Dirtbag,” which I’m posting the video for here because that song rocks, and the video has Jason Biggs and Mena Suvari in it. This is the censored version, where they blank out the word “gun” in “he brings a gun to school,” because we all know that school violence is a direct symptom of alt-rock lyrics. Thank you, FCC, for so bravely preventing another Columbine. If we spend all our time focusing on removing even the most innocuous references to violence from the songs we hear on the radio, we’ll find we won’t have any time at all to tackle any of the real reasons we see violence in our schools, which is a good thing, because doing that would be hard.

38Mario Lopez is SUCH an Asshole!

This guy just treats all women like shit and I hate him. I have no idea why anyone would date him. He’s such a gigantic loser with really, really, REALLY low self-esteem, and probably a tiny penis that only gets hard when he can see himself in the mirror. Seriously I heard rumors about him being an enormous asshole even back on his SBTB days, and then he cheated on Ali Landry just days before their wedding, and all of a sudden he starts to get all famous and popular again and I was kind of like “WHAT THE FUCK??? Don’t people remember what a DOUCHEBAG he is???” Well hopefully this kind of bullshit will help solidify in the minds of the American public that THIS GUY SUCKS and we don’t need to be casting him in anything or watching him on TV or drooling over him and or doing anything other than hating him and all his shittiness.

Here’s his ex-girlfriend, Karina Smirnoff, appearing on Chelsea Lately right after news broke that Mario had been cheating on her for a long-ass time with a stupid hooker who worked at Hooters. CLASSY! Chelsea asks her if she found out along with the rest of the country, and she says that she just found out a couple of days ago, and then she starts to cry. It’s so sad! And then Chelsea is totally kick-ass and awesome about it and consoles her and notes what a total fuckhead Mario is.

SUCK AN EGG, MARIO!
