Apologies for Technical Difficulties

Hi all,

Sorry posting has been non-existent the past couple of days. We are having technical difficulties. And by technical difficulties, I mean my next-door neighbors moved and took their Wi-Fi connection with them. So the cable guy is coming tomorrow to make an honest woman of me, and, until then, I’ve found a lovely Tea Lounge with free Wi-Fi. So we’re back.

Ethan Hawke Was Super Jealous of Uma Thurman

Ethan Hawke Talks About Why Hollywood Marriages Fail

In an upcoming interview with AMC’s Shootout, Ethan Hawke tells us what we already knew: celebrity marriages fail when one person becomes way more successful than the other.

“It’s unfair when one person’s career is taking off and the other is really suffering,” he says. “What happens — it’s not that they’re jealous of each other; it’s that the person you share your life with isn’t in the mood to support. You want to have a pity party for yourself, but they’re off to the Golden Globes and you don’t want to go because everyone is going to think you are jealous.”

Ethan Hawke, who will always be that “I am not acting like anything, I am calmly reading” guy from Reality Bites in my mind, married Uma Thurman in 1998. She filed for divorce in 2004, around the time her acting career was skyrocketing and Ethan was penning angsty novels.

But thank you, Ethan, for finally stepping up to the plate and actually saying that Hollywood egos get in the way of Hollywood marriages.

Nicole Richie Thinks She Can Control Me

From Page Six:

NICOLE Richie knows how rumors get started, so she’s nipping in the bud any chance of wicked whispers about her and boyfriend Joel Madden being on the outs. Wednesday night, Madden went to celebrate the first anniversary of the Village Pourhouse on Third Avenue, and all was well until a party promoter wanted to take a picture of him with a cute young woman. Our spy reports, “He said he couldn’t, as Nicole gave him strict orders not to take pictures with other celebrities or girls for rumor purposes.”

Oh, silly, silly Nicole. Clearly you don’t know me. If I want to say you and Joel are on the outs, I’ll do it whether or not I have a picture to prove it.

Truth be told, I think these two will be together at least until this kid’s two or so. They were spotted yesterday apartment-hunting in NYC.

Ohhh Shit, We’ve Got the Vanessa Minnillo Naked Pictures

So remember back when we had those pics of Vanessa and Nick in a hot tub that I had to pull because they threatened to sue me?

Even though OK magazine said they paid $400,000 for the shots to keep them private, some Spanish magazine called Toxic got the uncensored versions of the pics and ran them. They’re not the shots of the couple doing the nasty, but they’re some very naked pics of Vanessa, who doesn’t shave down there, if you know what I mean.

You can view them here and here.

Jessica Simpson is having a wonderful day today.
