21A Very Beety Fourth of July

You guys didn’t really think you were going to get through a 4th of July without having to watch new video of Leo (and the cats!), did you?

I got him a very adorable Independence Day shirt at Petco, and he actually didn’t mind it at all. He looked just precious!

I actually LOST him for an hour earlier in the day. I have NO IDEA how or when he got out, but somehow he did. At some point I was like, “You know, I haven’t seen Leo in awhile,” and started frantically searching the apartment for him. When I couldn’t find him in the apartment, I ran out into the hall and started searching there. Leo was nowhere to be found. I ran into a group of people in the hall and I was like “Have you guys seen a little dog in a red shirt???” and they were like, “Oh, yeah, he’s up on the deck. Chris has had him for like an hour.” My neighbor Chris, who lives two floors above me, had discovered Leo in his apartment. No one is entirely sure how he got onto the fifth floor or into Chris’s apartment, but he did. And the whole time he was missing I was like “OMG I shouldn’t have put him in that little shirt! He looks extra cute! People are going to be even more incentivized to steal him!!!” But thank goodness he came home safe and sound. He’d had an Independence Day adventure.

I invited a few friends over for a little party, and my friend Emily came over early to help me prepare, and we decided to take some video of Leo and the cats since they wouldn’t hold still for photos. Ashley’s not in any of the videos, because she was hiding beneath the bed the whole time, because that is what Ashley does.

After the rest of the girls came over, we played some Guitar Hero and then headed up to the deck to watch the fireworks display, which was incredible. They had 3-D squares and smiley faces and everything! I turned to Emily like, “You know, I think fireworks technology has improved significantly since I was a kid,” and Emily was like, “The good ol’ Chinese.” And then we laughed forever, because people in another country invented and perfected the technology we use as a symbol of our own country’s independence.

I hope you all had a safe and fun Fourth of July!

For those of you who are interested, here’s the trailer for the new Mary-Kate Olsen film The Wackness. It doesn’t look like MK has that big a role, but she sure is adorable when she’s on screen.

8Quotables

“It’s the best thing that ever happened to me.”

Nick Cannon, on his marriage to Mariah Carey, at Christian Audigier The Nightclub (really???) opening in Las Vegas.

Mostly I’m interested in the fact that Christian Audigier opened an eponymous nightclub in Las Vegas. It’s in Treasure Island. You guys, I think we need Evil Beet The Nightclub. I’m officially looking for financing.

9Eminem Sued for Bathroom Brawl

You know, I spend so much time thinking about who the next generation of gossip is going to be. Like, will we see problems out of Miley Cyrus? Selena Gomes? Demi Lovato? Should I keep my eye on Ali Lohan? I worry that interest in the Britney/Lindsay/Paris trifecta will wain as they start to get their shit together, and I focus on the up-and-comers.

And then I remember that we’ll always have the old folks, still fucking up. The Christie Brinkley divorce trial. The potential Madonna divorce. Jennifer Aniston.

And here’s Eminem, being sued for a brawl in the bathroom of a strip club two years ago. Ah, gossip will never be dead.

A man has filed a lawsuit against the Oscar and Grammy-winning “Lose Yourself” rapper for an alleged incident that took place in a bathroom of a Detriot strip club two years ago.

Miad Jarbou says Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, punched him July 13, 2006, at Cheetah’s On the Strip Gentlemen’s Club. No charges were filed at the time.

Jarbou is seeking more than $25,000 in damages.

Some things will never change.

27He Hasn’t Changed a Bit

It’s been a long time since Ace Ventura, and most of what we see of Jim Carrey these days is his support of Jenny McCarthy as she spearheads the fight against autism and unsafe childhood vaccinations, but he’s clearly the same guy he always was.

Jim put on Jenny’s bikini for a paparazzi-friendly stroll in Malibu this week.

Cute.

5Still My Family!

As divorce rumors swirl, Guy Ritchie and Madonna take their clan to the Kabbalah center in NYC together. Madonna’s not in this particular photo, but she was there with Guy.

You know, if those divorce rumors are true, I have to give Madonna and Guy credit for obviously working really hard to try to make their marriage work.
