We just celebrated 8 years this October
and our brilliant daughter Sophia is 4 - and a half!
(she loves to say that part)
Here's my and sweetie celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary at Trader Vics Downtown - which is where he proposed to me! (awww..)

This is funny… for 5 years a gorgeous house in Hidden Hills was the centerpiece of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. A tv producer bought it and has completely demolished the whole house – except for one piece. Everything was torn out – the roof, the cabinets, the toilets – and donated to Habitat for Humanity. So Kardashian remnants will be in homes around the world. The one piece the guy kept? The STRIPPER POLE!! He is turning it into a coat rack! lol!
Will Smith slapped a male television reporter over the weekend. Apparently the guy tried to kiss the actor before the premiere of Men in Black 2 in Moscow.

He was having a violent seizure – choking, coughing up blood, and vomiting. She called 911 – then grabbed the guys head and turned it to the side so he wouldn’t choke, while another person stuffed a wallet in the guys mouth so he wouldn’t swallow his tongue.
Mila Kunis has a stalker. cops caught a homeless man on friday trying to follow the actress to the gym. her security team detained the guy until cops got there. and apparently this isnt the first time this man has pulled something like this with the actress. unfortunately - they had to let him go due to insufficient evidence - but they are still investigating so that could change - lets hope so.

CBS is threatening ABC with a lawsuit. Seems ABC has a new show called Glass House and its very familiar to their show Big Brother.

Jaleel White is done with ‘Dancing with The Stars’. He was eliminated from the ABC dance-off after losing the shows ‘final dance duel’ to Roshon Fegan. It’s down to 6. Next week the remaining stars dance ballroom and latin - but in a DWTS’s first - each team has picked an eliminated pro to come back and dance as a trio. Should be interesting.
It’s all kinds of fun during the commercial break at DWTS, apparently a girl in the nose-bleed seats asked Mark Ballas to go with her to her prom – and he said yes! Of course he did – it’s a crowd full of people and the cameras are rolling. No word on where she goes to school or if he is actually going to go. click here for a picture of the lucky girl.

Charlie Sheen is not about to have his reputation ruined by a NYC strip club.

Really? Nonetheless – the club has 86’d Charlie’s name and pictures from the VIP room.
Poor Duran Duran – they are one of the bands playing a concert to kick off the Summer Olympics in London. But not everyone is happy.

Ashton Kutcher just singed a new deal with Two and Half Men – but he didn’t get the money he was looking for. He wanted 1-million per episode 2-year deal.

And now I’m hearing Demi Lovato is close to signing a deal to sit at the judges table with Brit, Simon and LA Reid. They are hoping the 19-yr old will help bring in a younger audience. There is also a rumor that Miley Cyrus is also being considered - but the talks with Demi are further along.

So what really happened with the Khloe & Lamar show? Was it cancelled or is it on a ‘break’? I’m hearing Khloe is the one who actually pulled the plug on the show so Lamar can focus on reviving his basketball career. Mom and manager Kris Jenner is very upset that she did that because she is losing money – Kris gets a commission from both Khloe and Lamar. I’m also hearing Khloe is in talks with E! for another spinoff – just her.
She is not even a year old yet – and already Harper Beckham has a job.

Her La Habra home was supposed to go up for auction yesterday – but that’s now moved to next week. Suleman and her 14 kids could face eviction if the house is sold. And now – Octomom says she will do adult movies for the right amount of money. She always said no – even with a million dollar offer from Vivid Entertainment back in the day.

He just signed a huge deal with American Idol – and it looks like he is moving on to bigger and better things. Ryan Seacrest just put his Hollywood Hills home up for sale. The Mediterranean Mansion has 6-bedrooms, 6 ½ baths and 10-thsnd square foot in the main house – yea I said main house. Because his property also has a gust house, pool, tennis court, wine cellar and screening room. It can be yours for the low low price of 11.9 million dollars.
Two days after calling "Voice" judge Christina Aguilera "the ‘b’ word" on the radio in New York, one of the guys from The Wanted apologized …, sorta. Then took another shot at Xtina. After a guest appearance on the show, the band did an interview and said "She's a total B. She might not be a B in real life, but to us she was a B." TMZ caught up with one of the guys in LA and asked him about the whole thing… he said "We shouldn't have said it, to be honest with you. We just think manners cost nothing, you know what I mean?" Yes. Remember – she was rude to Justin Bieber too when he was on the show. heres a few videos of that awkward moment. the whole thing - an instant replay.
At the box office… "Think Like a Man" remained at No. 1 for the second-straight weekend with $18 million. Pirates, The Lucky One, and blockbuster The Hunger Games are all hovering around the 11 million dollar mark for second and third place.
I don’t just play a doctor on tv – Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey came to the rescue of a teenage driver who crashed and flipped his car in Malibu – right in front of the actors house.
