No doubt about it, this couple is pretty, popular, paparazzi-pursued and pretty much potted all the time. Murg really has to wonder why everybody's pretending not to notice how merrily stoned these these two look whenever they're out together, let alone when they're working on TV and movies. Oh, wait a minute. Maybe it's because they're such big stars, nobody dares state the obvious. In fact, their pot smoking obsession is so obvious to everyone, from maitre'd's to parking attendants, that some of the latter fight to open their limo doors which, when thrown open, are always good for a contact high. Jennifer Aniston/Brad Pitt

She's so unusual (talented too) that it's no wonder Hollywood wanted to be in bed with her - professionally speaking, that is. Plus, she's been portrayed by the press as quite the sweetheart. Yeah, right. When a few of her movies didn't exactly scorch box offices, that's when her real self started showing through, and, believe Murg, it's not so pretty. She's been blowing off friends, going through guys right and left and firing her management. She's also been overheard at more than one bar on both coasts loudly and viciously trashing her competition. Meeowww!

When this famed couple first hooked up, he (a movie and stage star) came with a long romantic history that numbered very nice lovers of both sexes. She (a TV diva with occasional stage side trips) also had a history of dating very nice guys who occasionally liked to play on both sides of the fence--which worked just fine with her because she mostly was into plotting career moves anyway, not sex. So, now that these two have a steady thing going, how do they make their relationship work, especially when their busy work schedules keep them apart so often? In their cozy little arrangement, he gets the freedom to dally now and then, so long as he keeps to the couple’s strict one-night-only rule. And she has freedom to run riot through the high-end catalogues she devours, buying all the clothes and house stuff she pleases--which means she rarely wears the same thing twice and has a house to die for. And every once in awhile, they actually have sex together

Could it be that those dynamite divas of daytime are teaming up? Yes, but the details between the once-and-future co-stars are being kept under wraps – and under the covers! I’m told that the oft-married doll is becoming far more open about her “preference” – which makes sense, since her spousal-equivalent was never shy. But what is news is that motherhood (sans post-partum) has mellowed her out and left her free to treat her longtime queen of denial as more than an occasional trick. I don’t have to worry about her reading this item – the Net is off limits in her sancto sanctorum, or there’ll be hell to pay.

This hunky celebrity claims he's a changed man since meeting his "soul mate" earlier this year. But what his latest love doesn't know is that he keeps in constant contact with two of his previous girlfriends and hooks up with them whenever the opportunity allows. He even took one of his exes on a romantic getaway this summer, while proclaiming to his current sweetie that he was forced to go out of town "on business."

Who is that high profile couple who’ve been having marital problems. I was dying to reveal how the hubby decided to surprise his soon-to-be ex in her dressing room, only to find her in the middle of an oral exam – with her hunky male co-star! Another one bites the dust, as they say.

13. L.A.COM 09/15
She’s young, easy on the eyes, talented and very married, but this TV star (who’s having a rough time switching over to the big screen) is causing loud whispers for her habit of spending way too long hanging around the dressing rooms of the swankiest shops, and ritzy ladies’ lounges at the best hotels. The famous doll always makes sure she leaves her door slightly ajar, the better to peek and be peeked at. Unlike her scads of Beverly Hills trust fund girlfriends, she swears on a stack of Bibles that she never indulged in even the most casual lesbian flirtation, let alone a full-out affair. Except Dolly thinks our little daredevil has a highly selective memory. Surely she hasn’t forgotten that very hot dalliance with one of the female costars of the TV show that put her on the map? And what about that those playfully erotic dinners with the stylish Euro costume designer on one of her big recent projects?

Call him Rude Rookie. This newcomer on a new fall series is already getting a bad rap on set for trying to steal his costars' thunder during scenes and interviews. He has been interrupting and upstaging the stars of the show, who, mind you, have infinitely more fame, success and experience in the business. ???Producers already had to sit him down for a little talking to, because his colleagues were complaining.

This well-known actress has worn out her welcome at several posh Beverly Hills shops.

Could it be someone got more than a little creative at the recent Creative Arts Emmy Awards? So say my spies who arrived after that crazy-as-a-loon actress who had quite a difficult time negotiating the red carpet – probably needed some caffeine or sugar. And yet, she seemed to have landed on her feet once she hit the stage, even if her comments were still as chaotic as ever. How did she make this transformation? My source tells me that the gambling gal sequestered herself within the confines of a ladies’ room stall for well over 20 minutes. I dunno what she did in there, but I have been assured that she was alone.

At one Emmy-related party this year, this Reality Queen was spotted sauntering down the red-carpet, into the soiree. Onlookers who'd never seen her before in real life were stunned by the difference made by good lighting and a little crafty editing. As she walked in, one passerby commented (possibly loud enough for her to hear): "That's an impersonator, right? It's a drag queen?" Omarosa "The Apprentice"

--Could it be that two inquisitive fellows were sneaking a few kisses at the party thrown by their producers? Oh, sure, at first, they were just little social guy kisses, but as the evening wore on (and the liquor continued to flow), you’d think it was a blue light special – no coupon required. With the boys indulging in some tongue action, onlookers’ tongues were wagging that the co-stars would soon be playing spin the bottle and buying a vowel. One thing’s for sure – they’d be doing more than oversleeping in bed!
George Eads/Eric Szmanda "CSI"

--Could it be that a certain funny guy was openly exploring his queer side? I was wondering why every time I ran into my pals, they were with someone I’d think would be the last guy they’d hang out with (standing up, anyway). Of course, in this business, we’re all friends. But one of the posse told me that this was just another case of less is more. Jay Mohr "Last Comic Standing"

--Could it be that a sitcom star wasn’t in much of a rush to head home? So say my pals at the Governor’s Ball who tell me that the married-with-child chunk was enjoying his liquor and wanted to take libido out for a spin on the homo side. It might have been bad enough when he started telling anyone who’d listen that it had been a while since he’d “had some”, but when he resorted to using his character’s pick-up lines on virtually anyone who walked by (including some Emmy staff members), it was downright embarrassing. Just goes to show that when it comes right down to it, even someone who brings you coffee can be there for you…if you wait around long enough. Matt LeBlanc

This actress, whose most famous role is that of a "perfect" mom, likes her vodka cold and her men hot. In fact, tongues wag that she's not satisfied with one guy and often invites a party of three to her between-the-sheets hoedowns. Amazingly, her movie hunk hubby doesn't seem to mind -- as long as he gets to watch through the lattice door on the bedroom closet.

Could it be that a certain legendary actress is failing? So say sources on the set of that loony literary lake, who tell me that no amount of nursing from the rest of the cast could cover the fact that the lovely lady couldn’t remember her lines. At the last minute, a deal was made for the star to leave the production, but save face by blaming a pre-existing medical condition – no strings attached, and it certainly wouldn’t be a capital offense.

That hot, sexy, in-demand guy makes barrels of moolah for acting up in high-profile movie and stage projects. His career (and rippled bod) may be red hot these days, but when it comes to his offscreen life? Not so much. The latest in a long line of famous and not-so-famous girlfriends just dumped him for pretty much the same reason every other girl does: He’s a big, whining wuss who bores women silly by, among other things, constantly bludgeoning them with annoying New Age-y psychobabble about how they’re "invading his space," "stifling his spirit," yadda yadda yadda. His latest flame got so fed up with his touchy-feely shenanigans that she dumped him during the party after the premiere for his latest blockbuster, announcing loudly enough for anyone within earshot to hear, "If I wanted to date a woman, I could find one a hell of a lot hotter than you." Snap!

--Cheater, Cheater Pumpkin Eater: This well-known TV star, who's graced more than his share of magazine covers, is one half of a much-buzzed-about Hollywood duo. Turns out, though, he's anything but faithful. According to sources close to a fresh-faced Young Hollywood Starlet, she had a one-night romp with C.C.P.E. not too long ago (while they shot a cable show together), and was told soon after she "read too much into it." Heartbroken (and possibly vengeful), Young Starlet rebounded by cozying up to one of Cheater's costars, and they are together to this day.

"She ignores her. The attendant steps closer, points to the trash can and tells her to place the wrapper in the can. She obliges." Needless to say, she didn't leave a tip.

She makes you laugh so hard you might piddle, and she's an integral part of one of my favorite shows. But when this Seasoned Sally is on the set, it's anything but piddles and giggles. Castmembers tell me that although they adore what she brings to the show, she couldn't be more icy, intimidating and all-around diva-ish on set.
