13Fraternizing with the Enemy

Despite being an outspoken proponent of Obama’s candidacy, Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett-Smith pose with Chelsea Clinton at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation benefit in Windsor.

I guess now that Obama’s the nominee everyone can be friends again.

22In Case You Missed It

Check out Mary-Kate Olsen on David Letterman last night. Go to around 5:20, where she and David start talking shit about Spencer Pratt, with whom MK apparently went to high school.

13Paris Hilton Helps to Build a Tax Shelter Children’s Hospital

Paris Hilton has made a “generous” donation toward the construction of a medical building at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, although hospital officials would not disclose the amount.

“The children I have met through my involvement with Childrens Hospital have truly touched my heart,” Hilton said in a statement. “I am proud to make a donation and lend my name to the fundraising effort to help children who are facing terribly serious illnesses.”

Heh.

You just know she donated a hundred hair straighteners to the chemotherapy ward.

What, Paris? You think this is gonna make me be nice to you?

Fat chance.

11Mini-Me Sues TMZ Over Sex Tape

Well, at least we know that one thing is big about Verne Troyer: his lawsuits.

Mini-Me has filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against TMZ for running a clip of his sex tape on their website. He says that TMZ disregarded cease-and-desist letters sent both before and after the video showed up on the site.

Troyer has also sued Kevin Blatt (the man who sold the One Night in Paris footage), claiming her purchased the stolen tape and was trying to sell it to SugarDVD for $100K.

I can’t quite figure out how much he’s asking for (you can take a stab at the legal papers yourself here), but it seems to be at least in excess of $20M.

Wonder if TMZ will be reporting on this turn of events …

26Emmy Releases Top 10 Lists

For reasons I can’t begin to imagine — well, I guess it’s just to generate buzz — the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has released the Top 10 contenders for Best Comedy and Best Drama, even though the actual five nominees won’t be released until later.

I assume this is just a way to boost ratings for the Emmy telecast — to get people talking about it sooner rather than later — but I just think it’s just kind of mean to be like “You were this close” to everyone who doesn’t make the final cut.

Anyway, here are the semi-nominees:

TOP 10 COMEDY SERIES FINALISTS
“Curb Your Enthusiasm”
“Entourage”
“Family Guy”
“Flight of the Conchords”
“The Office”
“Pushing Daisies”
“30 Rock”
“Two and a Half Men”
“Ugly Betty”
“Weeds”

TOP 10 DRAMA SERIES FINALISTS
“Boston Legal”
“Damages”
“Dexter”
“Friday Night Lights”
“Grey’s Anatomy”
“House”
“Lost”
“Mad Men”
“The Tudors”
“The Wire”

Noticeable snubs include “Desperate Housewives,” “My Name Is Earl,” “Scrubs” and “Heroes.”

17She Has Teeth!

Mary-Kate Olsen is not toothless!

The tiny twin — who stars in the upcoming film The Wackness — showed up at the film’s screening and actually smiled!

We now officially have adult photos of both Olsen twins smiling.

I never thought the day would come.

By the way, MK makes out with her 64-year-old co-star, Ben Kingsley, in the film, a clip which I sincerely look forward to finding on YouTube soon. “She was completely in charge,” says Kingsley of the make-out sesh.
