Tom and Katie's Late-Night Couch Confessions
The Tom-Kat road show continues! The Cruiser talked to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, making fun of his crazy Oprah appearance by jumping on Leno's couch and pumping his arms in the air. "When I start to think of her, things happen," he said. Katie went on Letterman, meanwhile, and gushed about this epic love affair of, oh, about six weeks. Asked if the two are getting hitched, she answered, "I'm smiling, aren't I?" but she said she'd never thought about their age and height differences (she's taller, he's 16 years older). Meanwhile, Katie Holmes fans are trying to help her in her "summer of captivity" by offering Free Katie T-shirts.
Brando's Bizarre Last Days
Marlon Brando's biographer Peter Manso is going public about Brando's last days. Manso reports in Playboy that as the actor's health grew worse he became more dependent on Angela Borlaza Magaling, the married housekeeper rumored to be his lover. Brando's business manager was worried about the relationship with Borlaza, who moved into Brando's compound with her two kids and sis. Brando left some strange instructions in the event of his death: "Seal his bedroom with a padlock. No one is to enter. 'They will steal the buttons off my shirt.'"
Brangelina Buzz Could Make Smiths a Hit
With Hollywood's other most-gossiped-about "couple," Brangelina, their movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith might benefit from all the buzz. It was looking like it had the Gigli curse, but this steamy spy flick might actually boom at the box office as fans flock to see if there is any real sexual chemistry between the actors. We think those 60 pages of steamy photos in W magazine might be a tiny, tiny hint, folks.
Cousin Brucie, the veteran New York disc jockey, has a new gig with Sirius Satellite Radio. Bruce Morrow had been dumped from WCBS-FM last week when it abandoned its oldies format. For Sirius, Brucie will host three shows, two of oldies hits from the '50s, '60s and '70s, and his own talk show. After just suffering through the warbling voices and receding hairlines of the Backstreet Boys on the Today show, we're so not surprised that they need to offer free tickets to their upcoming tour. Michael Jackson's jury is still deliberating, if you were wondering. Jacko spends his days split between the hospital and Neverland. Sounds better than a day job.
