Diane Kruger Honors Quentin Tarantino

Diane Kruger was one of the stars who stepped out to honor director Quentin Tarantino last night. She attended the Museum of Modern Art film benefit that was held in the director’s honor. It looks like she attended solo: no sign of boyfriend Joshua Jackson. What do you think of Diane’s gown? I’m a fan!

Diane worked with Quentin on the film ‘Inglourious Basterds.’ I’m embarrassed to see that movie is still in my netflix queue. I need to bump it up to the top. I can’t wait to see Diane in ‘The Host,’ the film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling adult novel.

Justin Bieber Steps Out

Justin Bieber was seen leaving his Beverly Hills hotel. I thought Justin had a place in LA. Maybe he doesn’t? Given how much he travels for work, perhaps Justin hasn’t had time to buy a place of his own anywhere, either here or in his native Canada. Justin reportedly was seen leaving on-again/off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez’s house yesterday morning.

Perhaps he views her place as home. It looks like they’re having a hard time deciding if they should stay together or break up. The spotlight they live under can’t make things any easier!



Khloe Kardashian Catches A Flight Out Of Miami

Khloe Kardashian must be racking up some SERIOUS frequent flyer miles these days! She’s flying between Miami, where ‘Kim and Kourtney Take Miami‘ still seems to be filming, and LA, where she’s co-hosting ‘X Factor.’ I don’t even know how Khloe makes the time to see husband Lamar Odom, given his traveling schedule for basketball season. If I were Khloe, I’d be ready to drop from exhaustion. She must be good at sleeping on flights!

Have you seen Khloe hosting ‘X Factor’? What do you think? I need to tune in and watch this week. I’ve been so busy this fall, watching TV has been a real struggle. I need to get caught up, though, before my DVR is completely full.



Halle Berry Hangs Out With Nahla

Halle Berry must be relieved she was able to settle everything with Gabriel Aubry after his Thanksgiving day brawl with Olivier Martinez! I’m sure she was still upset over the judge’s denial of her request to move to France with Nahla, but the fighting doesn’t do their daughter any good. Here’s Halle picking Nahla up from school.

After leaving school, Halle took Nahla to visit a friend. Both Halle and Nahla look upbeat. They were in the holiday spirit! Word recently got out that Halle has put her house up for sale. At this point, at least they know they won’t be moving before Christmas. Talk about a pain: having to pack up and move during the holidays!

Marcia Cross’ Book Buying Spree

marcia cross book buying spree

Former ‘Desperate Housewives‘ star Marcia Cross stopped by the Brentwood Country Mart. She left with a stack of books. Looks like she plans to read the new J.K. Rowling book, ‘The Casual Vacancy,’ and a Barbara Kingsolver novel (can’t quite make out the third one). So I guess we know how Marcia is enjoying her free time now that ‘Desperate Housewives’ is over!

Seeing these pictures makes me think of a few things. One, the Brentwood Country Mart must have quite an array of products. I wouldn’t think to buy books there. It also shows you how bookstores really are disappearing, especially since Borders is gone. And finally, people still buy physical books? Now that I have an e-reader, it just seems odd to see people actually holding books- LOL.

Pitbull Looking Sharp

Here’s rapper Pitbull leaving his Beverly Hills hotel. Are you a fan of his music? I love it: it’s great music to dance to! One thing you can always say about Pitbull: the man ALWAYS looks sharp. This guy doesn’t wear sagging pants and oversized t-shirts.

I wonder what happened after Lindsay Lohan sued Pitbull for mentioning her in one of his songs? The case is still probably making its way through the legal system. Now that the IRS has seized all of Lindsay’s bank accounts, she may not be able to afford to continue with this case. Or this might be a good time for Pitbull to offer her a cheap settlement to make it all go away…
