Actress Minnie Driver is penning a tell-all book about her time in Hollywood!
Still only 42, Driver’s colorful career has included an Oscar nomination and a doomed relationship with Josh Brolin. Now the actress is ready to tell her story, and says, “I’m working on a memoir.I want to tell it from the view of someone who was normal, but whose life became abnormal.Hollywood is portrayed in this super glamorous way, but when I see pictures of actresses going off the rails, it does not surprise me at all”. Though best known for her stand-out performances in Grosse Pointe Blank and Good Will Hunting, Driver has struggled to find similar roles in recent years and her output in 2011 amounted to appearances in the light-hearted drama ‘Hunky Dory’ and television movie ‘Hail Mary’. She hit the headlines last week after revealing the father of her son Henry was a writer on the TV show ‘The Riches’. The actress had never previously disclosed the identity of the father to her 3-year-old.
Sounds interesting – I’d read this! I think celebrities are so much more messed up than the public realizes. Do you think it’s the pressure of “being perfect” or too much time and money on their hands?
Jennifer Garner (aka the cutest pregnant celebrity ever) and her daughter Violet spent an afternoon of pampering together. Jennifer and Violet were seen leaving a hair salon in Beverly Hills.
I love Jennifer’s fun animal print scarf.
Nicole Richie and Kim Kardashian stepped out last night for the QVC Red Carpet Style pre-Oscar event.
I think Nicole knocked it out of the park with the dress, the shoes, the clutch, the very understated makeup. Kim on the other hand…. not loving what she wore – at all! The makeup is too much, the dress isn’t flattering, the earrings are too JLo-ish. Her clutch is cute, I’ll give her that much. I think Kim looks her best when she goes “softer” with her hair and makeup.
When I think rich supermodels I think Heidi Klum or the like. But according to Forbes – the richest of them all is Kathy Ireland! Who knew?!
Ireland, 48, was on the coveted SI swim issue cover three times in her career, and went on to launch an empire, worth an estimated $350 million, according to Forbes.
Considered the richest supermodel in the world right now by CelebrityNetWorth.com, Ireland is “a bigger licensor than the formidable Martha Stewart,” Forbes notes.
What began as a simple clothing line at Kmart emerged into a brand that now includes home goods, socks and wigs.
Wow, $350 million? That’s crazy! And bigger than Martha Stewart?! Impressive! Good for her for having a “backup plan”, right?

Miranda Kerr graces the cover of March’s issue of Haute Muse magazine. The supermodel mom and wife of Orlando Bloom shares her favorite “cheats” and how she keeps in shape.
Miranda says that she maintains her amazing figure with “a lot of yoga and Pilates and eating healthy. It does take hard work.” Despite that, she still enjoys sweets and junk now and again:
“If you want to have a little indulgence every now and then, then that’s okay. Sometimes I’ll feel like some dark chocolate or sometimes I’ll feel like some French fries.”
Miranda also shares that her romance with Orlando Bloom started off as friendship first:
“We were friends for at least six months first after we met, so it was a very nice way to start. Romance followed friendship.”
Vanessa Hudgens and her BF Austin Butler stopped off for breakfast at the Aroma Cafe in Studio City together this morning. After their breakfast date, she headed over to her mom’s house.
What do you think of Vanessa’s look? It’s way better than some of her usual getups, that’s for sure.
Flower in the hair? Yeah or Nay?
Brooke Mueller is in some serious trouble. According to TMZ, Brooke has been formally charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. The charges stem from her arrest in Aspen on December 2nd, last year. At the time, she was caught with more than four grams of cocaine, which if convicted, could land her in prison for six years.
In case those charges don’t stick, prosecutors also added another count, possession for holding under four grams, which could land her in jail for 18 months.
On top of the drugs charges, Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife has also been charged with assaulting a woman on that evening.
On December 2, she was arrested for dealing drugs inside a club in Aspen. A woman inside the club called the police, and accused Brooke of assaulting her. A spokesman for the City of Aspen and Pitkin County Police said at the time: “Officers with the Aspen Police Department were on a routine walk through when they contacted a woman who reported an assault which had taken place. The woman identified Brooke Mueller as the aggressor.”
She was arrested on the spot and charged with assault, and when police officers searched her, they found a large amount of cocaine in her possession. The police spokesman said: “Mueller was arrested and charged with assault in the third degree (class one misdemeanor) and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute (class four felony).”
Brooke recently successfully completed two months in rehab. Apparently she’s clean now. “Brooke is feeling better than ever before, and is committed to continuing treatment for as long as necessary to maintain her total and complete sobriety.”
