Stars With Shopping Carts

What? Can it be? Yes, kids, today marks the triumphant return of Stars With Shopping Carts, a fan favorite here at Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits. We haven’t done a Stars With Shopping Carts feature since early 2009 — because, quite frankly, this blog was on hiatus the entire time I was in grad school.

So today’s Stars With Shopping Carts has to be a doozie, right? Oh, and it is! The theme: couples counseling. These folks either need it, are inevitably going to need it, or, they’ve missed the boat altogether. Ready?

If you saw their joint interview recently with Joy Behar, you know KISS’s Gene Simmons and longtime lady love/baby mama Shannon Tweed are in trouble. Tweed stormed off the set mid-interview! Still, gotta eat:

Ladies and gentlemen, Brad and Angie with two of their 16 children:

What could be said bout Anne Heche that she hasn’t already said herself to Barbara Walters? Here is Celestia with James Tupper, her Men In Trees co-star and beau. (Just to get you all up-to-speed: Heche left comedian Ellen DeGeneres to marry and have a baby with camera man Coley Lafoon — who was working for DeGeneres — then left Lafoon to be with Tupper.):

Nutty David Arquette is still technically married to Courteney Cox(-Arquette), but she, understandably, needs a break from his crazy ass. The two are currently separated. So here’s Deputy Dewey shopping solo with little Coco.

Lastly, Xtina. That’s right, the “Dirrty” girl herself Christina Aguilera threw in the towel last year on her five-year marriage to Jordan Bratman. We never could figure out a celebrity couple name for these two: AguilBrat? Bratlera? X-Jor? No matter now.

Which celebrity couple is the most doomed? Vote in the comments!

Playing Battleship with Brangelina

Did this freak out anyone else?

slingplayerscreensnapz001

The E! network’s red carpet crew was hunting down Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie like it was a game of Battleship. It made me uncomfortable. Maybe it was a preventive measure in case Angelina tried to snatch one of those Slumdog kids for her collection.

This year’s final “Stars With Shopping Carts”!

Welcome to the final “Stars With Shopping Carts” of 2008! Let’s make it epic. This week’s theme: people with problems.

Ready?

Here’s closet smoker and criminal lover Anne Hathaway laughing uproariously, hopefully with the woman next to the shopping cart. If Anne’s alone, she has more burdens than we know:

Here’s to 2009 and another year of “Stars With Shopping Carts”!

These eight magazine covers cost $25-million

Gawker posted a great item on Friday about People magazine’s questionable values during recession time: how can a media outlet justify firing staffers to save money when it has dished out more than $25-million dollars in one year for photographs of celebrities and their babies and/or weddings. These “exclusive” pics appeared on just eight People covers.

Were these pics worth $25-million?:

Looks like People forgot its adage “Celebrities! They’re just like us!”

Stars With Shopping Carts!

This week’s theme: couples! Isn’t it romantic when twosomes shops together? (Apparently for some more than others. Ahem! Kate Bosworth and James Rousseau).

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (no surprise: Ange is pushing the cart):

Until next time, happy shopping!

Let’s catch up!

I’m back from North Carolina, but I’ve been moping around in bed all day because I’m really sore from my first whirlwind weekend with a Wii. I boxed. I bowled. I golfed (badly). I tried to play baseball, but it wouldn’t let me bat left-handed. (I’m kind of ambidextrous when it comes to sports). I know: it’s sad that Wii activity could tucker out a person, and I have taken the hint to be more physical.

Honestly, the main reason I’m sore is because our group went bowling in real life and as I was strutting down the lane with my ball, my feet fell into the slick area and I did a nearly cartoon-like shuffle and fell down hard on my back. Apparently, from my lady friend’s laughter, the only way it would have looked funnier is if there was a cartoon banana peel under my feet.

But, ouch. GV is not a kid anymore. I’m lucky I didn’t break a hip.

So, let’s catch up. Here’s what’s on my radar today:

Lindsay Lohan is confirming in the December Harper’s Bazaar that she’s in love with Samantha Ronson.

harpers-bazaar-2008-dec-lindsay-lohan

In other Lohan news, Lindsay appears to call President-elect Barack Obama, whom she supported, a “colored” in this clip. Oh dear,

Jennifer Aniston gives husband stealer Angelina Jolie a little swat on the nose in December’s Vogue.

medium_jennifer-aniston-vogue-december-2008

Here is the full quote in which Jen comments on Angie’s recent admission that she and Brad Pitt fell in love on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, while he was still married to Jen:

“There was stuff printed there that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening. I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss. That stuff about how she couldn’t wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool.”

I was excited for Jen to be rid of Brad, but it seems she’s got a taste for cads. In the same interview Jen confirms that she is still seeing ignoramus guitarist John Mayer. “Love just shows up,” Jen says.

Oy.

Finally, the New York Post’s famous Page Six gossip section is reporting that “rocker” Jon Bon Jovi was looking through the Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat paintings up for auction at Sotheby’s recently.

I wouldn’t peg JBJ as a Basquiat enthusiast, but good for him.

And, how are you? I’ve missed your cute faces.

Stars With Shopping Carts

Time now for another installment of “Stars With Shopping Carts.” The theme: new moms. These are Hollywood ladies who have recently had a baby (not necessarily their first baby). The catch: not all the pictures are taken after the kid was born. Ready?

A still pregnant Jessica Alba with Cash Warren:

Nicole Richie and whichever Madden guy she’s with:

Gwen and Gavin:

Jamie Lynn Spears and her teen-age hubby (up to the Wal-Mart):
