Bennifer! Say it ain’t so!
People Magazine reported that publicity-smacked power couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have…sniffle…split.
The shady report came this past Sunday in which a source close to the “Gigli” costars implied Ben tossed Jenny back to the block.
“Devastated,” was the adjective said source used in describing Lopez’s condition.
Respective mouthpieces for Bennifer (the name tabloids have given to the couple) declined to comment at press.
News of this breakup comes days after the postponement of Ben and Jen’s wedding, the two claiming media clamor would spoil the day.
So that’s what they’re calling cold feet these days…
‘Sex’ ends without a bang
Sex and the City, HBO’s enchanting signature hit ended its summer season on Sunday.
Mikhail Baryshnikov, the man recently revealed to be playing the true love interest to Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) made his appearance on the summer finale, and will return for the Emmy Award winning series’ final eight episodes.
Surprisingly, no sparks flew on the finale, but some serious spit swapping consumed the last 30 seconds of the show.
Perhaps fans won’t find 55 year-old Baryshnikov too old to sweep Carrie off her Manolo Blahniks.
Latifah heats up for ‘Cookout’
Recently reduced hip-hop diva Queen Latifah is still riding high on the wave of Chicago.
According to Billboard.com, the Academy Award nominated star started shooting the Lions Gate Films picture, The Cookout.
Latifah co-wrote the comedy starring a litter of celebs such as Ja Rule, Eve, Jonathan Silverman, Farrah Fawcett (seriously) and Danny Glover.
The flick centers on an NBA star who celebrates newfound success by hosting a barbecue for his wacky friends and neighbors.
Latifah co-star’s as a security guard in the production shooting in New Jersey.
Shut Up Weekly
Britney Spears, shut up. Please? For me? Apparently almost a decade of superstardom has taught you nothing!
At least Aguilera got tough (and she can sing, but that’s another story).
You’re still working the tired innocence circuit, stumbling your way through interviews and reliving your Justin phase.
Case in point: a recent sit-down with MTV’s Gideon Yago, in which you kept repeating what a “cool lady” Madonna is, how much you idolize her, but have never heard of Desperately Seeking Susan.
If 10 seconds of tongue gets me a diamond initial pendant, where’s the line? And your Rolling Stone cover?
Save the teasing for the Pussycat Dolls, get real – real quick, before that badly buzzed record of yours drops in November.
