Quote of the Day "The retirement home." --Seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong, 33, on where he is headed next
Katie Holmes: A Sight for Sore Eyes Rumor has it that those hideous sores that appeared around Katie Holmes's mouth shortly after going public with Tom Cruise in May were from a Church of Scientology "detoxification" procedure involving the vitamin niacin. The New York Daily News suggests that Katie could have gone through Purif, a purification regimen that rids people of toxins. The procedure stems from Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard's declaration that taking niacin in combination with exercise and sauna sessions purges the body of "radiation," Hubbard's shorthand for negative alien substances in the body. Silly us! We assumed Katie got the sores from making out with Tom too much.
Oh, Baby(sitter): More on the Jude Law Nanny Scandal Don't expect Sienna Miller to forgive Jude Law anytime soon. Yesterday's Sunday Mirror reported that just over a week ago, Jude called Daisy Wright, with whom he was having an affair earlier this year, and asked her to meet for lunch. Though they scheduled a date, the meeting never happened because Daisy sold her story about their sexcapades to a British newspaper. Meanwhile, we're still trying to wrap our heads around the New York Post's coverage of Nannygate. It made the front page three times last week. And in one article, they called Jude a "bad-boy actor" -- so not true -- and Sienna an "A-list actress" -- so not true. Must have been a slow news week.
Kevin Federline: Deadbeat Dad Britney's hubby, Kevin Federline, is being called out as a deadbeat dad. Apparently Kev, who is expecting a child with Brit this fall, skipped the first birthday party of his son Kaleb, one of his two children with ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson. Shar's spokeswoman said that Kaleb's birthday "came and went without a visit, present or phone call from Kevin or Britney." Shar has also accused Kevin of stiffing her on child support payments. What a catch, Brit! We're so jealous!
Romance Report Amanda Peet is engaged to Troy screenwriter David Benioff. Contrary to reports, Pamela Anderson says she and Tommy Lee are not getting re-remarried. Damn! We were dying to see what bridal attire she'd wear this time around. Though nothing can compare to the white string bikini. Katie Couric is single again after her reconciliation with businessman Tom Werner fizzled. Wouldn't it be a hoot if she hooked up with cohost Matt Lauer, who is also reportedly flying solo these days? At least they wouldn't have any scheduling issues.
