Justin Gaston plays ball
We’re not the biggest fans of teen singer Miley Cyrus here at Mamba Mansions, but we certainly are captivated by her bloody gorgeous boyfriend, Justin Gaston. The 20 year old model was recently snapped for a tennis court themed fashion shoot by Doug Inglish for VMan magazine (left). Whining about the fact that he’s been labelled an “underwear model”, he told the magazine that: “People don’t understand that there’s no such thing as an underwear model, there’s just modelling. Nine time out of ten I’m actually wearing clothes.” He makes it sound like that’s a good thing! Keep your clothes off Justin and we’ll stick with you through thick and thin.
Desperate Housewives get desperate
We’re ecstatic that Desperate Housewives is back on SA television screens, but we’re not too sure what to make of news that in an upcoming episode Eva Longoria and Teri Hatcher share an onscreen kiss. We’re all for our sisters locking lips and getting lesbionic at every opportunity, but this does smack of desperation. Word is, the move is an attempt to up the show’s flagging ratings. Teri said that she had “fun” being kissed by Eva, while Eva complained: “She was not supposed to kiss back, so she was kind of just there, and I had to do all the work.”
Is Sherlock Holmes gay?
We always thought that there was something up between Sherlock Holmes and his faithful companion Dr Watson. And, if reports are to be believed, so does director Guy Ritchie. The News of the World has reported that his new film, starring Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes and Jude Law as Watson, will portray the legendary fictional sleuths “in a gay way”. According to Robert, “We’re two men who happen to be room-mates, wrestle a lot and share a bed. It’s badass.” We’ll take this one with a pinch of salt…
Jonathan Rhys Meyers heads for re-hab.
Another Hollywood celebrity has been shipped off to rehab. This time it’s the occasionally sexy Tudors actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Apparently Jonathan is seeking treatment for his long-standing problem with alcohol at a centre in England. It’s not his first time; he’s ‘done that, been there’ back in 2005 and in 2007. Apparently the producers of the Tudors warned him about his drinking during the recent filming of the show’s third season. We wish him the best in his recovery.
The Academy Awards have come and gone for another year. We were quite pleased with the recognition that Milk received and all the gay fun that was had by all. However, despite winning a naked golden man for his role in the acclaimed biopic of Harvey Milk, Sean Penn apparently snubbed the film’s cast and crew by not bothering to show up at a pre-Oscar party to celebrate the film’s nominations. In related news, his ex-wife Madonna was spotted attending the Vanity Fair Oscar party looking astonishingly fresh-faced. Word is the 50 year old singer had a radical skin treatment – confirmed by photos of the star’s face looking very red and tender just a few days before the bash. Whatever she did, it looks like the Material Girl is successfully turning back time. Another highlight was the annual Elton john Oscar after-party which raised $4 million for the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Guests included David and Victoria Beckham, Josh Groban, Nicole Kidman, Mary J. Blige and Donatella Versace. Sadly, we couldn’t make it this year…
Jamie goes naked for the bears
If you’re a fan of TV’s Battlestar Galactica, you will have no doubt regularly drooled over actor Jamie Bamber, who plays Lee ‘Apollo’ Adama. Now the tasty 35 year old London-born Jamie has posed in the buff for a PETA ad to help save the Canadian black bear. In the interests of conservation and saving the environment, we thought we’d share it with you here. With that fuzz on his chest it looks like Jamie is something of a bear himself.
Chris Brown to claim self-defence
Unconfirmed reports suggest that Chris Brown will claim that he beat his superstar girlfriend Rihanna in self-defence – because she attacked him first! Sources say that he insists that Rihanna threw her phone at him, hit him on the head and went berserk. Chris is said to be waiting to hear what he will finally be charged with before officially issuing his defence. At this point he has only been charged with making criminal threats but there is speculation that the authorities could charge him with anything from domestic violence to attempted murder. Police are still investigating the incident. Somehow we doubt that a pathetic self-defence claim will impress anyone – including a judge. Take it like a man Chris.
