I’m Kind of Torn as to How I Feel About Scarlett Johansson Dating (?) Justin Bartha

From Page Six:

Johansson, who split with Penn a month ago, attended the opening of off-Broadway’s “All New People,” in which Bartha stars, on Saturday, and the pair were photographed together backstage. Spies said Johansson and Bartha later seemed “completely engrossed in each other” during a cast dinner also attended by playwright Zach Braff and actress Heather Graham at Café Un Deux Trois.

One witness told us, “There were about 15 people at the table, but Scarlett and Justin sat next to each other and talked all night. “They seemed pretty fascinated with each other and only talked to each other,” the source said. “It looked sometimes flirty, but also they seemed to be involved in a deep discussion.”

… She and Bartha were also reportedly seen “flirting up a storm” at Karaoke Boho here on Saturday.

First of all, LOL HARD @ Karaoke Boho. Karaoke Boho? Is that where a bunch of hipsters sit around, smoking Parliaments and drinking PBR, pretending they’re too cool to react to bad karaoke performances? Jeezus please us. The cheese stands alone, man.

Anyway, Scarlett and Bartha. I have a bit of a hard-on for Justin, even though he’s not really what a lot of people consider to be mainstream hot, so do you think – if this is true – that it’ll up Justin’s marketability factor? Or shut Scarlett’s way down? Think these two are even for real?

I’m surprised by this year’s list, to be honest. There’s some predictable crap on there (Chris Brown, ugh) and some not-so-predictable but awesome regardless (Mumford & Sons), but on the whole I’m not all that impressed, so I’m going to leave it to you guys to decide who wins. Have at it!

Pretty Sure Weston Cage is in Jail Again

This time? Oh, right. For domestic battery again. My bad. I thought it might be something different, like being an obnoxious, karate-chopping asswipe in public. No, this time it was for whaling on his pregnant (?) wife, Nikki Williams, once more. This time, though, it appears that she wasn’t taken into custody.

From TMZ:

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Weston was arrested at 5AM in Hollywood — and then taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for cuts … and we’re told, cops believe the injuries were self-inflicted.

TMZ spoke with the mother of Weston’s wife Nikki Williams — who tells us, “Nikki is safe and away from him.”

It’s the second time in a month Weston’s been popped for domestic violence — except last time, Nikki was also arrested … after allegedly going after Weston with a bottle.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff’s website, Weston is still in custody on $50,000 bail.

So this time she didn’t attack him with a broken bottle, I guess - he beat on her and then made it look like she went nuts and tried to cut him up. By cutting himself up. Ugh. There are just so many things wrong with this entire thing on so many different levels that it’s hard to even realize that, at the root of this, there is a very sick individual seeking out attention. Unfortunately? This is just not the way to go about getting the right type.
