Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits

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.

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.

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.

Jon Bon Jovi doesn’t want GOP using his song

Add Bon Jovi to the growing list of famous bands irked that the McCain-Palin campaign is using their songs at events.

Jon Bon Jovi, who gave a $30,000 plate dinner for Barack Obama in his own home, issued a statement about his song “Who Says You Can’t Go Home” being played at McCain-Palin rallies:

“We are surprised to hear that our song, “Who Says You Can’t Go Home” was used by the McCain campaign at rallies yesterday and today. We wrote this song as a thank you to those who have supported us over the past twenty-five years. The song has since become a banner for our home state of New Jersey and the defacto theme song for our partnerships around the country to build homes and rebuild communities. Although we were not asked, we do not approve of their use of ‘Home.'”

So now Heart, Foo Fighters, Bon Jovi, John Mellencamp and Jackson Browne have balked over the GOP playing their music.
