Stars With Shopping Carts

We’re way overdue for a new Stars With Shopping Carts installment, so let’s get to it!

This week’s theme: “Young Hollywood – And Its Hasbeens”. Oh, Tinsel Town, you’re so fickle.

You tell me which of the following shoppers are still hot and which are not.


The Hills reality star Lauren “L.C.” Conrad:

Tweezed eyebrow’d heartthrob Zac Efron:


Faye Dunaway-feudin’ Hilary Duff:


Former actress Lindsay Lohan:

Now you vote! Who’s still got a career, who’s done, who’s hanging on by a thread?

Older celebrities taking time to nurture youngsters

GV’sGH would like to take a moment to congratulate sterling senior celebrities Faye Dunaway and Stephen King for their charitable encouragement of youngsters in their respective fields.


Last week, crackpot actress Dunaway scoffed when asked about the upcoming remake of her 1967 hit movie Bonnie & Clyde, and said not-nice things about its star, Hilary Duff:

“Couldn’t they have at least cast a real actress?” Dunaway asked.

To which Duff fired back in this E! interview: “I might be mad if I looked like that now, too.” (Okay, that’s even tackier.)


And this week, writer Mr. King had this to say about mega- successful Twilight author Stephenie Meyer:

“Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good.”

Faye and Stephen, two thumbs up for carrying on in the rich tradition of selfish, spoiled artists who have made it big and can’t handle sharing the spotlight with anyone else. Bravo.

Hurricane Fay and weird relationships of the 1970s.

The strengthening of tropical storm Fay down in the southeast makes me think of two things: (1) I’m glad I don’t have to go through the hurricane brouhaha this summer, the stocking up of H20 and toilet paper, the checking of the windows and all other pertinent batting down of hatches. (What are hatches? Why not latches? It makes perfect sense).

And (2) that no matter how many times I remember this bit of trivia, I will not be able to digest it: Volatile actress Faye Dunaway was once married to the lead singer of the J. Geils Band.
Peter Wolf and Faye Dunaway in the 1970s

Yes, Peter Wolf, the gentleman who pranced about in videos for songs such as “Freeze Frame” and “Centerfold.” Lest we forget his solo smash “Lights Out.” He and Mommie Dearest were husband and wife from 1974-1979.

But, then, so many strange bedfellows came from the 1970s: Gene Simmons and Diana Ross.

Liza Minnelli and Peter Allen.

Bob Marley and Vogue editor Anna Wintour (I must have missed the season when dreadlocks were a must-have fashion).

Linda Rondstadt and Governor Jerry Brown of California.

Governor Ronald Reagan and the State of California. Yes, the Dems voted for Cowboy Ronny. I think California only goes Republican for movie stars. See: Arnold Schwarzenegger.

They always say the drugs were more potent back then and sometimes I don’t doubt it.
