Congrats to the folks at JPL, NASA, Lockheed Martin and a host of universities, who successfully landed a probe near the Arctic Circle on Mars for the first time ever on Sunday evening. The probe will look for signs of life (past or present) on the Red Planet, and give us photos like we’ve never seen before.
I get so excited about stuff like this!
I know it’s not really gossip, but I’m going to keep you guys posted anyway.

Once again, Christina Aguilera left a Hollywood nightclub with a LOT of help.
This time, it was Villa Lounge.
Now, I’m not saying you can’t still go out and have a good time after you have children, but really, Christina, mightn’t it be a good idea to avoid the paparazzi hangouts?

Patrick Swayze and his wife, Lisa, took in a Lakers game this weekend.
The star has been battling pancreatic cancer, so it’s great to see him out and about!
We’re praying for a full recovery for you, Patrick!

Memorial Day weekend is always one of the slowest news times of the year. It’s the first major holiday of the year, so everyone gets the hell out of town — this includes publicists, paparazzi and tipsters. So no one’s taking any pictures, no one’s issuing or leaking any stories, and it’s boring as hell.
Instead of sitting at home and waiting for something to happen, I took Leo to the Northwest Folklife Festival, accompanied by my friends Trish and Jesse, their Great Dane Bruter, and their neighbors, who brought their bulldog, Bacon. It’s hard to really tell what the Folklife Festival is about (I kept asking and never got a straight answer), but there are lots of the following: people, food, art, music, dogs and weed. There’s this huge grassy section where the neo-hippies hang out in their funny neo-hippie clothes and get way stoned. That alone was worth the trip. I wanted to take pictures of them (“The Stoner Exhibit”) but then I figured that would be rude.
Anyway, our group got a ton of attention, wandering around with three dogs of VERY different sizes and shapes. It was pretty much the cutest thing ever. I took a video so you all could see how adorable it is.
I’m learning that Leo is very, very friendly with people — he loves to be held, cooed at, played with, etc — but other dogs bore him quickly. I kept trying to get him to play with the other dogs, but he had way more interest in playing with the people. He’s not mean to other dogs or anything, they just hold very little intrigue for him.
Anyway, I’ve included here the video of the three dogs hanging out, and some new pics of Leo so you all can see how beautifully he’s growing up. He’s still at only four pounds, and it doesn’t look like he’s going to put on a whole lot more size. The vet continues to assure me that he is healthy, and he’s probably just a naturally very small dog. I love him!

The formerly pixie-cut starlet shows off her new extensions at Christian Audigier’s 50th birthday party.
Also there: Britney Spears, who declined to walk the red carpet, but hung out in a VIP area, smoking cigarettes and staying sober, while accompanied by her father, who apparently sat on a nearby couch and looked tired and bored. She left after an hour and a half.
