John Travolta Went on an All-Dude Ski and Spa Trip—With His Wife (?!)

  • The National Enquirer reports that John Travolta's Vermontian resort getaway was semi-secret, and that Kelly Preston was not there. Travvie and his guy-pals were "very discreet," a source told the Enquirer. "You could tell they didn't want to be seen."
  • But as Stowe Today reports, Kelly Preston was actually in Stowe, Vermont with John Travolta. Like, at the same time. Who are we to believe here, the local paper or the almost-Pulitzer winner? STUMPED. [Celebitchy, Stowe Today]
  • Joe Francis has confirmed that his blink-and-you-missed-it marriage is over. Must have been one rough month! Oh, but wait: they were never really married—they had a civil ceremony, and only considered themselves married. Whatever. At least there were no kids involved. Let's hope there are never any kids involved, wherever Joe Francis happens to be. [Radar]
  • Zac Efron's dealing with his break-up from Vanessa Hudgens by working out and getting "extra big." Girls are "wowed" (this part isn't really news). [NY Mag]
  • If Zac Efron doesn't "wow" you, maybe Reese Witherspoon's engagement ring will. We'd be stoked to find it in our Cracker Jacks box, for sure. [Popeater]
  • And if the Witherspoon bling ring didn't work your wows into a frenzy, here's Kim Kardashian with her hair in very thin braids. OMG, it looks like her hair lost 10 pounds in just two weeks! Those braids are so skinny. [Daily Mail]
  • Speaking to the media about his private life for the very first time, Michael Lohan says he and glamorous citrus fruit Dina Lohan should try to get along so that their rehabilitating daughter Lindsay Lohan doesn't relapse.

  • Amber Riley doesn't make New Year's resolutions because she lives in The Now and gets things done. Maybe she can show us how to do same some time? She could make a webinar about it. [Bloginity]

  • January 7 marks the release date of Britney Spears' new single, "Hold It Against Me." It reportedly has an "infectious" beat. If it doesn't live up to your expectations, don't hold it against her. [Billboard]
  • Can't wait for Brit's new song? Here's a new leaked one from Katy Perry to hold you over, and it's pretty good! Wonder if Russell Brand agrees. It's so hard to imagine him enjoying his wife's music, because of his total lack of bubblegum candy-pop dancer vibes. [YouTube, Billboard]
  • Russell Brand released a pic of his wifey without her makeup on, then deleted it a nanosecond later. But the pic still got out, and here it is. [Holy Moly]
  • Oprah says she won't poop in public. TMZ thinks this is a big deal, but it's not—lots of people have taken the same vow, for very common-sense reasons. You just don't want your stall neighbors to talk—you're not there to give them an experience, but to get a job done. [TMZ]

  • Mr. J.Lo, Marc Anthony, may owe $3.4 million in taxes. He's had tax issues before, so he's probably experiencing deja vu-like symptoms of taxitis. [Radar]
  • BREAKING: Celebrity kisses! Mmmmmm. [TMZ]
  • Ben Stiller wasn't all that impressed by Owen Wilson when the butterscotch stallion auditioned in front of him for the first time so, so many years ago. Now they are like brothers—brothers who don't look like each other at all (adopted brothers), and who can't stop acting together. [The Star]
  • Married Mel B has lots of sex with her husband and talks about sex all the time and sex sex sex, that's what she likes. Sexy spice! Spicy sex! (Bonus sex-sex-sexual benefit: It tones muscles and keeps you slim.) [Bloginity]

  • He's cokey and he's he's spooky, promiscuous and ooky, but he's not so fucked up that he won't check in with his mom whenever a death hoax about him erupts: that's our Charlie Sheen. [Contact Music]
  • "I think it's quite a task being a royal because you have to be on all the time, it must be a strange experience," says Emily Blunt. Yeah, that does sound tough! All you folks who work in rock quarries and coal mines should stop complaining, because at least you can be your true, authentic self in those jobs. [The Star]
  • Speaking of the poor royals, Rogaine maybe wants to hire Prince William and his "growing bald spot" to be their spokesman/spokespot. [Digital Spy]
