Shout! Shout! Let It All Out

Well ... it is about damn time ... here is our first look clear look at Violet Ann Affleck:

Ben Affleck and Jen Garner have done a pretty good job at keeping her under wraps ... er, blankets ... but now we finally get to see what the lil' darling looks like ... she looks more like Jen but with bigger eyes ... ain't she a cutie? [Source, Source]


Wee! Things are clipping along nicely on 24 aren't they? While there wasn't a lot of OMG!ing we did get a lot of new information ... and we finally got to see President Logan grow a set of balls:

I was a actually a bit surprised to learn that Prez Logan was involved in every evil aspect of the day's events ... from the assassination of President Palmer to the leaking of the SYNTOX gas ... he is eyeball deep in all the day's bad shizz ... and Jack Bauer is gonna make his sorry ass pay for it. Interestingly enough, tho, we did learn that Christopher Henderson was the one who made the final call to assassinate President Palmer ... even still, the idiot Prez cannot make his own decisions. I'm glad to see that Karen Hayes is making some progress as a semi-decent leader, but with Miles in her ear she's sure to keep making stupid anti-Jack decisions. Jack never fails when he needs to get the job done ... kidnapping the bank dude was brills ... what wouldn't Jack do to get the information that he requires? And can I just say that the Audrey/Chloe Team totally kicks ass ... they need their own series ... I'd totally believe them as the Cagney and Lacey of the 21st Century. Aaron Pierce still amazes me ... he is the best ... there are some really solid characters this go around (Curtis rules too) ... I will really be upset if any of my faves end up biting it in the end. The only thing that annoyed me about last night's ep was all the Mission: Impossible-sounding music that kept playing whenever Chloe was working frantically on her computer ... it sounded really cheesey ... I hope the 24 peeps lose the lame music background noise. The best line of the night came from the kidnapped bank dude who said to Jack, "I'll take my chances with you." I wholeheartedly agree.

24 fans can rejoice ... news came out yesterday that Kiefer Sutherland has signed on for 3 more years of 24 ... for something like $30 million dollars ... not too shabby. It looks like Jack Bauer is gonna live to see another day ... er, days.

What is going on here? Who is this chick walking around with our dear Jake Gyllenhaal?

I don't remember authorizing this interaction? What is going on here? [Source]

Ashlee Simpson was on hand for a MTV Australian Video Music Awards press conference yesterday to discuss her role as host at the rapidly approaching Aussie VMAs:

She better not screw it up ... [Source]

Check out these cute pictures of Ashlee Simpson with her boyfriend Braxton canoodling on a boat down in OZ:

Yeah, the girl looks worn the eff out afterwards ... I wonder what happened on that little pleasure cruise that tired out our dear Ash? And why does Jessica look so pissy in her picture ... do you think she's thinking about her ex-hubby Nick Lachey? [Source, Source]

Hopefully Jess is not thinking about Nick because he sure as hell ain't thinkin' about her ... he is all up in Cacee Cobb's bizznazz it seems ... check out these pics from The Gilded Moose:

INTERESTING ... isn't Cacee Jessica's supposed best friend and personal assistant? How horrible would it be if she were really sexin' up Jess's soon-to-be ex husband? See, I knew that Nick and Cacee fought too much on The Newlyweds ... there was a lot of tension betwixt the two ... and now we know why. How scandalous!!! [Source]

Michelle Trachtenberg and Carmen Electra were among the celebs in NYC last night for a SAAB party:

The party was thrown in honor of SAAB's new concept car called the Aero. Yeah ... whatevs ... Michelle and Carmen look cute. I wonder if they got free cars in their gift bags? [Source]

Mariah Carey is in a celebratin' mood ... that is why she packed up her Louis Vuitton and hit the beaches of Antigua yesterday:

She looks really cute ... and I'm sure her boobies appreciate the little vacay. [Source]

Paris Hilton is one classy beyotch, y'all. Check out the tasteful outfit that she wore to Hugh Hefner's 80th birthday party over the weekend at the Playboy Mansion:

Is it me or does she look like she just got out of prison or something? She doesn't even look like a nice hooker in this pic ... how sad. [Source]

BUT ... don't let her skanky outfits mislead you ... Paris Hilton is still a hard worker ... check it out ... she's ... doing ... whatever it is that she does ...

... sucking, squatting, straddling ... yep, that's our Paris! [Source]

Hallelujah! Sound the trumpets! Lindsay Lohan is back to her usual red headed self:

Praise the Lord above! [Source]

Tom Cruise must be super excited at the impending birth of "his" first natural-born child ... that is why he's flying all over the place these days:

Head on over to TMZ.com to check out video of Tom screwing around in the cockpit of a WWII plane. I think he was on his way to the moon. Yeah, that sounds about Cruiseazy enough. [Source]

Congrats to Canadian wannabe VJ Tim Deegan:

Yesterday he was chosen by Much Music voters as their new VJ. It's nice to see that Canucks have good taste in hot VJs. Holla! [Source]

Nicole Richie gave a huge shout out to Pink is the new Blog in the new issue of British Glamour magazine:

I have to send out lots of love to Pink reader Katherine for sending in the scan ... I don't know that I will be able to get my hands on a hard copy of the magazine but I'm glad to have the page scan. I am so glad that Nicole loves reading Pink is the new Blog with all of her friends ... [thanks Katherine]

... which is why I'm sure she won't mind this fun picture:

Woot! I <3 you Nicole ... even when you look like Carol Brady :)

Les News:
Adriana, my saving grace, helped me check out a bunch of possible living spaces yesterday ... so far we haven't hit pay dirt but we've got a full day planned for today and hopefully we'll find the perfect place. We will be spending today in Los Feliz/Silverlake/Hollywood. I have to give a shout out to Pink readers Laura (and her friend) and Will (who randomly was the stylist who cut my hair at Rudy's yesterday) who I bumped into while out on my apartment search.

We spent the night in last night ... Jeff and Davey came over to Jim's where we all watched TV and played Scrabble ... yes, ladies and gentlemen ... Scrabble. I'm happy to report that I came in second behind Davey by only 3 points ... and that was really only because of a technicality ;)

I gotta jet ... there's a full schedule for today ...

A note about tomorrow ... I'm gonna do my best to get a regular post up for tomorrow but I have to fly out of LA and to NYC early in the morning ... I hate to say it but I may only have time to whip up a truncated post ... or *gasp* a super duper late post. All apologies ... but the cross-country flight eats up the entire day. BUT ... I'll do my best to come up with the usual Pinkness. XOXO
