Hi Gorgeouses!

It’s been a long day. One of those days in which the monkey neeeeeeeeds me constantly.  But, she’s, like, soooooooo adorable, so I don’t mind. And, she gives good kisses.

We got VIDEOS…so….

check it!!!!!


I cannot imagine fighting off the paparazzi while buckling my baby into a carseat. It’s hard enough without cameras flashing! Poor Violet! I actually started feeling sorry for her, but, then I remembered that she does have her mama with her (unlike other celebrity babies…SPF!) AND she does have two of the hottest celebs for parents! After realizing that, I felt better and not sorry.
Thanks to X17 Online for the video footage.


This cracked me up, so I thought I’d share. This grocery store is right across the street from the celebrity centre of the Church of Scientology. Interesting…. Check it:                                                      

She’s good — she parked her own shopping cart! And, wow! She eats bread! Did you notice that? Clearly, she loves running her hands through her hair….

I’m SOOOO cheering for Jennifer Hudson (even though Cate Blanchett’s taking it home…). I LOVE Judi Dench, but Helen Mirren’s taking it home….

Biggest surprise?: Ryan Gosling??? Everyone’s talking about it!

It just occurred to me: wouldn’t it be a great intellectual exercise to actually see all these movies — including the foreign-language ones? Hmmm….I’ll think about that. I could write a wee review here and everything. What do you think? No matter what, WE ARE HAVING SUCH AN OSCAR PARTY HERE AT CHEATY’S — ‘SGONNA BE AWWWWESOME!



With rumours spinning about his termination from Grey’s Anatomy, Isaiah Washington is taking major steps to remedy the mess he’s created for himself. On Monday, he met with gay and lesbian organization leaders and effectively "acknowledged
the harm he caused" (leaders said). He also committed to becoming actively involved in the gay community’s effort to teach how words have power and cause harm, in the hopes of demonstrating that his actions speak louder than his verbal apology (which, perfect as it was, was likely dictated to him by publicists…). This just in: he has fired his publicist and hired two new publicists who are experts in media crises. Oh, he needs experts. It doesn’t get more "crisis" than this…! I’ll keep you posted….

I also hear from various sources that, if he is fired, it’s going to be abrupt, with only a full-screen announcement at the beginning of the first show sans Burke….

Most of you thought that Isaiah should NOT be fired. You’re in the minority, according to the poll taken by CNN’s Showbiz Tonight. 51% of their viewers thought Isaiah should be fired.



For the record, I did NOT like Fantasia on American Idol. I was cheering for Diana Degarmo….People shoulda listened to me! Check it! NUT-BALL!



Is it me? Or are they starting to look alike? They even walk the same — is that walk, like, totally choreographed, or what!? Weird they they totally didn’t plan their wardrobe this time, though….Whattup widdat?



I could absolutely care less about this story, but all the intergossips are talking about it. So, check it. Apparently, Courteney Cox’s show, Dirt, has received painfully low ratings. So, they’re bringing in Aniston for an onscreen liplock with Cox.  Ooo-OOO-ooo!  I can’t wait!  Yeah right. Whateves. Aniston’s going to play a lesbian character, and they’re apparently replicating the whole Jen and Brangelina scandal while Jen’s onboard. Sigh…. So bad.



Yup, they’re on! And, they’re going public. They’ve been spotted at the ever-popular Nobu recently. And, here they are, above, leaving their hotel to board his tour bus. He is HUMUNGOUS next to her. His head is twice the size of hers. Just a wee observation.

Ahhh…. Now I get to go to bed.

So, do you think I should try to watch all these Oscar-nominated movies? Do you think we should all try for one per week? I could choose the movie, and then we could talk about it in the comments? You into that?

Talk to me in the comments, kay? I talk back!!! Tell me what you think of all this gossip! LOVE!

And, don’t forget to visit my personal blog, The Cheaty Monkey! LOVE! xo Haley-O

    Posh has taking her bath curtain, put a ribbon on it, and voila!! a outfit!! And they do look alike on that picture!!
    And I thought Jon was a tiny guy(not like a little people, but small…)
    I can,t believe that “Bon cop, Bad cop” didn’t make the list for foreign movie!! Just watch it, and know I know what the fuss about it was all about!!

    LAV — Isn’t Wicker Man a HORROR flick! I can’t watch those. No freaking way…. I can’t even look at the cover of the dvd without quivering….

    hi haley,i love foreign movies.the last movie i saw at an actual theatre was oh,lord of the rings 2 with my teens.last movie we rented on vod was X-men 3.last rented movie i watched was wicker man.my neighbour lent it to me.last foreign movie i watched was a spanish movie…

  • http://cheatymonkey.com Haley-O

    LAV — so you want to watch movies with me? ANYONE ELSE!? We need all the motivation we can get! What should our first movie be?? I’m dying to see Little Miss Sunshine, but it’s always out when I go to rent it!!!

    JEFF — I’ve seen, like, nothing — I guess that comes with being a new mom….
    ALI — YES! You could have seen them there!!! That would’ve been awesome…. Oh well….
    LAV — Love it when you play devil’s advocate. Keeps things alive! 🙂 I personally think these communities have to take hold of the opportunity while it’s hot! And, it’s a good way of turning something negative into a positive, learning thingamajig. Just my opinion. Contary to what EVERYONE thinks, I’m not always right…. 😉
    GAB — It was, indeed, wonderbread!!! 🙂 And, being swarmed by paparazzi wherever you go — I’ve learned from gossiping for a while now — is part of the price you pay for being famous. A big price. But, I think, that’s why you get paid the big bucks….
    DREA — And, your hair’s the same style as Eva’s. If I ran my hands through my hair like that all the time, it’d get all straight and flat….

  • http://dreawd.blogspot.com Drea

    wow i cant imagine all those ppl photographing me… annoying!! I run my hands through my hair exactly like eva. I think its more of a nervous habit though… more than anything 🙂

  • http://thebigpoooooh.blogspot.com/ gabriella

    If I was jennifer garner, I don’t know if I’d be more pissed off at all the attention of me putting my daughter in the carsear or would I just be friendly and polite. It must be horrifying to have your every move scrutinzed like that but I guess that’s what happens when you’re famous. And was that Wonderbread that Eva was buying???

    hi haley,poor violet.why couldn’t the press just take a pic of them leaving store and then leave them be?so do you think eva was playing with her hair because she’s vain or maybe its a nervous habit?haley sorry but i feel like i have to play devil’s advocate here for isaiah.how much press coverage are the gay and lesbian alliance going to milk from his so very bad and misguided and hurtful comment?i mean shut up already about it.they are just loving all the attention that the big mouthed isaiah has brought them.eww its the stepford wifes posh and katy.you are so right.twins.so to everybody who thinks ang is such a bitch..now jens going to use that whole scene to what?what is point of replicating it on telly?eww that is in poor taste.i always thought jen was classy…sure hales i’d watch some of those movies with you then comment on them…

    Back in the old, old (old) days before parenting my wife and I actually saw 4/5 Best Picture nominees for a couple years… but admittedly we saw them spread out throughout the summer (along with a pile of nonsensical tripe that my wife chose).
