Now You Can Ride a Virgin Any Time You Want


Virgin America Airlines has arrived.

Sir Richard Branson showed up at an NYC party on Wednesday night to celebrate Virgin America Airlines’ First Flight from LAX to New York.

This airline is pimp. In fact, some bloggers have begun referring to it as “Airline 2.0.”


The planes feature electrical sockets, WiFi connections, mood lighting (Mile High Club, what???), seat-to-seat chat, Google maps, games (including Doom), tons of movies to choose from, and flights from JFK to LAX start at $149.

I’m Not Entirely Sure How Britney Spears Thinks She’s Going to Shock Us

Britney Spears is Going to Shock Us with Her VMA Performance

So we’ve been hearing forever about Britney’s “surprise” appearance on MTV’s VMAs next week. She’s been working on some sort of act with Criss Angel, who — surprise!!!! — she’s also having sex with.

“She’s planning it to be a big comeback performance,” says a source close to Spears. The source also adds that the goal is to make it “shocking.”

Really, Britney?

It’s going to be shocking???

Hmmm …

Let’s think about what Britney could do to shock us. Here are some ideas. She could:

- Shave her head while the whole world watches
- Check into rehab three times in one month
- Have sex with everyone who comes within five feet of her
- Smoke cigarettes and drink margaritas while her toddler son stands next to her
- Show the whole world her vagina
- Show the whole world her vagina three times in two weeks

Yeah. None of that would really work these days.

Oooh, I know!

Maybe she could articulately explain why 1/5 of Americans can’t find the U.S. on a map. That would shock me.

Bridget Moynahan Doesn’t Want Her Slimeball of an Ex to See His Baby

Bridget Moynahan Won’t Let Tom Brady See His Baby

And I don’t blame her one bit.

Bridget gave birth to a baby boy last week, but Baby Daddy Tom Brady had ditched her for supermodel Gisele Bundchen not long after knocking her up. Tom flew from the East coast to L.A. for the birth of his kiddo, but Bridget is understandably less-than-thrilled about having Tom around at this point in time.

“Tom was only allowed to see the baby for a short time,” says a West Coast spy. “Bridget would not see him herself.” Moynahan’s publicist said in a statement: “Bridget is very thankful for a happy baby, excited about being a mother, and very pleased that the father, Tom Brady, was able to be there for the birth.”

But our source says: “He was only allowed to come after the baby was born. The woman would not see him, period. And she gave the baby her last name.”

But Tom Brady isn’t giving up! And Bridget isn’t giving in.

“[Tom] is waiting to find out when he can see the little guy again,” says the snitch. “Bridget is not giving him any slack on this at all.”

Yesterday, her spokesman said Brady and Moynahan were “together” at the hospital, but couldn’t say if he was in the room during the birth. “Bridget and Tom are on speaking terms and have the best interests of the child at heart,” he said.

Something tells me this thing is going to be resolved in a court room. Ooh, I hope Gisele shows up!!

Rihanna and Shia??? Seriously???


The rumors have been flying for a couple of days.

Rihanna’s denying them, saying the two are just friends.

I don’t think Shia’s made any formal comment yet.

But I keep hearing more and more stories about Shia LaBeouf and Rihanna!

Here’s one from Buzz Foto:

It was an interesting evening last night. We had our weekly Global Domination Buzz Foto dinner at Kate Mantilini restaurant in Beverly Hills and we were had just ordered our shrimp cocktails and wine when we noticed Rihanna walk by our table. We thought that was cool and we were just about to dip another shrimp in the tartar sauce when we noticed that she was dinning with Shia LeBeouf!! Holly shit! What a photo and no Dog Pack around. We got on the blower to one of our guys to come over for the hose down. We had a direct view of their booth and we witnessed a very animated Shia during the dinner which ended with strawberries and wine. This dinner lasted close to two and a half hours so there must be something here. They walked right by our table as they exited the restaurant, but no hand holding, touching or groping. Flashes went off and Rihanna was delighted to pose for photographs, but Shia behaved like a twelve year old running in the garage to hide and whimper. They drove off in is brand new pick up truck. How classy.

What a strange pairing. How tall is Shia? I think he’s around 5’10. Because I’ve seen Rihanna in person, and she is super tall! Buzz Foto didn’t get a pic of the two of them together (dammit!) but they did get a pick of Rihanna at Kate Mantilini, which I’ve put above this artice.

Kate Mantilini is not the Ivy, but it’s definitely no place to go if you’re trying to keep your relationship a secret!


Andrea Bowen at Teri Hatcher’s Badgley Mischka Party

“I think she’s very classic and beautiful, and she dresses her age, which is really nice. Because I’m 17, and you always see—without mentioning any names—girls around my age trying so hard to look older and trying so hard…I learn a lot from her about embracing your beauty for what you are.”
