While blogs are so very 2004, it's the only legitimate way to work more references (and photos) of the ubiquitous Paris Hilton into our content. And we'll talk a little sports, too. P3's Jason McIntyre keeps you up-to-date with the latest celebrity dish.
SCUD LOCKED UP
The property tycoon heiress has been dating Philippoussis for the past five months and accepted his marriage proposal. Her engagement ring is reportedly worth $200,000.
Apparently, the family loves him and so far, there's been no mention of the 10-year age difference.
MARBURY AND NIA LONG?
The Knicks' point guard was spotted exiting through the back elevator with actress Nia Long. Go Steph, it's your birthday...
BET SHOCKEY'S HAPPY
Somewhere, there's a play on "tight end," but we can't seem to find it. Either way, she's due in New York City next week, so maybe Shockey can win her back.
"Well, technically," says Alba, sipping her Madeira and clearing up a misconception, "Texas was only one of the places I learned to strip. I also learned in New York, L.A. and Miami. But my character wears a cowboy hat and a lasso and boots, and I didn't want to do a bad job for Robert Rodriguez, so I went to a club in Austin." ('The Sinner,' GQ, March 2005)
In my opinion, girls who talk so candidly about stripping are considered cool. So Jeter, why'd you two split up? There's no shame in going back to her especially since everyone knows what she looks like in a bathing suit.
OBLIGATORY PARIS REFERENCE
We're just going to pretend for a minute that Paris Hilton isn't dating a Greek heir, 25-year-old Paris Latsis, and continue our unabashed lovefest for her by reveling at her marvelous Guess? campaign.
After you've closed your mouth and wiped the drool, let's mourn for a minute the supposed end of her longtime friendship with "The Simple Life" co-star Nicole Richie. Cue the "Boyz II Men" CD and wipe a tear while remembering them in happier times.
