Demi Moore was scheduled to attend a screening of her new film, Bunraku, at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles on Tuesday, but did not show up. Could it have had something to do with the rumor that her marriage is dissolving? Or the rumor that her husband had sex with some blonde chick on the eve of their wedding anniversary? [Gatecrasher]
Demi Moore has not been tweeting to Ashton Kutcher the way she used to. No mentions of Two And A Half Men, no mention of their anniversary. She did, however, tweet this quote: "When we are offended at any man's fault, turn to yourself & study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger. — Epictetus" Translation: My husband cheated on me and it is taking all of my inner strength not to call him a fucking asshole in public. (Epictetus was a Greek sage and Stoic philosopher, FYI.) [Twitter, Daily Mail]
Demi also tweeted a picture of herself with her eyes closed, and the words, "I see through you." [Twitter]
Demi and Ashton have been "living apart for months," according to sources, and "faking it for the cameras for way too long. Also, Demi is now "gaunt." [NY Post]

Angela Simmons, daughter of Run-DMC's Rev Run, has posed nude for PETA. She says: "As a devout Christian, I feel it's very important to show compassion for all of God's creations — and adopting a vegetarian diet is the best way to keep innocent animals from suffering." The ads are fairly tasteful, but calling every meat eater a sinner might offend. Guess that's the point. [NYDN]

1. You know, though Demi Moore was never the strongest actress and derived a great deal of her Hollywood power from being one-half of a supercouple back in her heyday, I am still a bit bummed that she isn't looked to as a Hollywood heavyweight in the way that Brad Pitt is. Perhaps because she's bearing the brunt of ageism as a woman in the way that Brad doesn't have to or because I'm a unapologetic nostalgist who longs for the good old 90s (where she and Meg Ryan ruled the movie star roost), but it sucks that she is known more for who she is married to than any projects that she has taken part in over the course of her 30 year career in Hollywood*.

* Yes, I'm well aware that she was a part of the Brat Pack (as that is how I remember being introduced to her as a kid), but let's be real - her marriages to Bruce Willis and/or Ashton Kutcher are the first things that are mentioned when she is being profiled.

2. So Angela really wants me to believe that she fully supports PETA's cause and philosophy and that she doesn't own any designer pieces (whether it'd be shoes, bags, jackets, etc.) that are made out of leather or suede? I'd be more inclined to believe that her uncle Hustle Simmons never gypped anyone on his Def Jam roster.

3. Since I haven't watched ANTM since the Eva/YaYa season and have no plans to (despite Kelly Cutrone's presence), I think it's safe to say that I miss Kell On Earth to this day.
