ari gold to advise dita von teese, in bed.

from the ny post...

"…as he browsed at Kari Feinstein’s suite at Social Hollywood in LA last week, [Jeremy Piven] was forced to come clean about the identity of his “brunette and curvy” lady friend because he didn’t know her size. He finally told the clerk the dresses were for [Dita] Von Teese…Von Teese’s lawyer, Keith Fink, told us Piven has seen her performance and he shyly said hello to her when he ran into her at an LA newsstand right before he bought the dresses. “She is single, and she’s not dating, so he should step up to the plate because there’s a lot of guys interested,” said Fink."


tom cruise and will smith - the remix.

did you see that scientologist video featuring tom cruise? anywho - the remix is pretty dope, check it out!

rachel ray hates dunkin' donuts too.

according to grub street, rachel ray reportedly SPIT OUT dunkin donuts coffee while filming a commercial, exclaiming, "THIS IS SH*T." she then demanded her coffee - which happened to be starbucks.

i'm not sure if rachel ray's annoyningness dropped 10 points because she knows what she's hawking is garbage, or raised 10 points - because she knows what she's hawking is garbage.

now if you'll excuse me, i'm going to sip on my skinny latte.

ashlee's new do.

you know pete wentz inspired this.


the hat that solicited the randomness.

so this hat garnered a random compliment from a starbucks drive-thru attendant, who wasn't even serving me.
bought it saturday at the mall at steamtown. both the gf and i are in agreement with its "flyness."

sunday night, friday's on kidder, and lifehouse...

the following is an excerpt from "the ralphie report" that will be printed this wednesday in the weekender.

Thank goodness for BlackBerry’s, Google, and Sunday nights in Wilkes-Barre.

Afternoon-ace A.J., Midday-mogul Marino, and I all ventured to T.G.I. Friday’s on Kidder Street. Marino and I sought out reduced prices on spirits and greasy appetizers. In the act, we simply coaxed A.J. into joining in.

The three of us bantered about a number of subjects, with Monday’s acoustic performance of Lifehouse inside The Mall at Steamtown dominating the discussion. Coincidentally enough, we heard First Time blaring over the bar speakers as we discussed the Malibu, California-based band.

Immediately after that – the group’s latest track – Whatever It Takes – played throughout Friday’s. I observe two guys on my right, whose attire doesn’t exactly scream, “NEPA.”

My BHT cohorts vehemently deny that there’s any possibility rock stars are drinking amongst us. I dissent, and decide to end the matter in a twenty-first century manner.

Google Image Search via BlackBerry led us to Bassist Bryce Soderberg and Drummer Rick Woolstenhulme, Jr., who were flattered we recognized them. The men comprise two-thirds of Lifehouse - lead singer and guitarist Jason Wade decided to rest in his hotel room.

For the record – national recording acts play their own music on jukeboxes in bars.

A couple rounds, boneless wings, and games of music trivia later – Rick retired to bed, while Bryce rolled with us to Mohegan Sun – offering up the “rockstar” moment of the night.

“Wait, I thought I was betting $10, not $50. Oh well,” the bassist nonchalantly stated in between hands of video Blackjack.

Bryce confessed earlier in the night that he and Colbie Caillat engaged in a summer fling while the two acts toured with headliner Goo Goo Dolls. According to Soderberg, Caillat broke his heart.

I guess the former tanning salon attendant doesn’t leave everyone feeling Bubbly.

holy whoa.

so much happened since we last spoke.

i took a train into new york city that rode directly through ground zero.

my girlfriend and i spent the day in scranton, and watched juno at the endless mountains movie theater.

i drank and gambled with lifehouse.

97 bht brought lifehouse to the mall at steamtown.

so many stories to come... plus your regular doseage of celeb news!
