Welcome back to Midweek Madness, in which we sample the flavors of Star, In Touch, Life & Style, Us and Ok!. This week, the only name you need to know is Beatrice Zennaro. She's the luckiest lady in the world!
The dude from The Bachelor and this lady who left the show because she had to go back to her job at Facebook "melted into each others' arms" in a "secret" reunion behind the scenes "at the dramatic taping of Bachelor: Women Tell All." Snooze! In Jolie-Pitt "news," the kids went to Venice and ate gelato. Beatrice Sennaro[sic], who owns a gelateria, says that the kids wanted big cups, but "mom said no," so she gave them a small portion in a medium cup. Crafty! Lastly, you know how in these "What I Ate Today" stories, celebs are always subsisting on grapefruit and grilled chicken over salad? Well Julianne Hough went to the Cheesecake Factory with her sister and they ate "avocado egg rolls, fried calamari, artichoke and spinach dip, chicken pot stickers, Thai chicken wraps and a piece of Snickers cheesecake." Including her breakfast of eggs, fruit and a bagel, she had 3,286 calories that day. Stars! Just like us!
Grade: F (no gelato for you)
Life & Style
"The Twins Are Out Of Hiding."
Knox and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt have never been seen in the U.S.! There's no story here, just a crapload of pix. In Venice, the kids had black cherry, vanilla, caramel and strawberry gelato, etc. Oh, look, another interview with Beatrice Zennaro (spelled differently here!), who owns La Gelateria Lo Squero. She says: "The kids really enjoyed their ice cream." She also says: "[Brad and Angie] seemed very peaceful, happy. I read in the newspapers that they were having problems, but it didn't seem the case." Oh, and also? The twins, with their divine healing powers, brought Angie and her dad back together. Moving on: Gerard Butler went partying in Rio just a week after being in Cabo for Jen's 41st birthday. The copy reads: "Single Jen had chosen not to join Gerard on his on-the-prowl vacation — leaving her to start her 41st year without a man in her life." Sob! Next: Kourtney Kardashian's baby daddy Scott Disick was out partying recently when a "heavy-set female fan" came up to him to say hello. Scott said: "Hey, how are you doing? Lose some weight." Asshole. In other news, don't you love how Charlie Sheen's nanny appears to be glaring at pictures of Charlie and Brooke (see image 7)? The story about Lady Gaga's "meltdown" is really about how she is "exhausted" from touring and devastated by Alexander McQueen's death. "Nicole's Dream Wedding" is just an excuse to print pictures of white dresses and glittery accessories.
