Renee and Kenny Split

What happened between Renee and Kenny? This seems to be the topic everywhere today and the cover of People Magazine. They just recently got married, just four months ago, and now everyone wonders what happened to this happy couple. People Magazine basically describes their relationship as being rushed and that they were still getting to know one another after they were married. A friend of the two, Tim McGraw, said that it just was not right for either one of them, however, another friend said that Kenny had no idea that Renee was about to drop "the bomb." Well, I guess this split is not really a shocker for anyone because celebrity marriages never seem to work for long periods of time, but some do. Another break-up that just occurred was between Tori Spelling and her husband of only 14 months, Charlie Shanian. A friend of Tori's said that "She loved him. But she wasn't in love with him." What is with all these break-ups? But, on the other side, there are the more happy couples and marriages. One to point out is Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell, who are heading to the alter, after have been dating for a year. They seem to be very happy together and talk of having kids after they are married. I wonder how John Stamos feels about this? For those of you who do not know who John Stamos is, he is Rebecca's ex-husband, who played Uncle Jessie on Full House. In addition to happy couples, lets talk about the happy couple Britney and Kevin. I know all of you know that she had a baby boy because everyone follows up on People, and every other magazine that talks about Britney and Kevin's new baby boy Sean Preston. Her website starts off by showing her and Kevin kissing and saying it's a boy. To see this click here They seem so happy and cute together.

*One last note I want to say is that in my last few blogs, I told all of you that some babies were torn from their parents during Katrina. Well, I have very good news, one of the little baby girls named Kalise, had just reunited with her mother after have been torn from her during Katrina. I knew there was still hope for these children to find their families.

A Whole New Kirstie Alley

This edition of people is a little different from the rest. There is still news about Katrina and it still hits the headline of People Magazine, but the main attraction on the cover page is Kirstie Alley. Now i am sure almost everyone knows who Kirstie Alley is. She has been an actress for a long time now. I am also sure that many of you have seen pictures of Kirstie's weight changes. In 1997 she was at 132 pounds and she looked amazing, but she said it was very hard to stay that skinny and eat right all the time. Then as time went on Kirstie Alley gained a lot of weight. She had topped 200 pounds in 2004 and started to realize that it had gone too far. At first she did not care too much about the weight gain and she was very happy, eating whatever she wanted, when she wanted. She even had a semi-reality TV show called Fat Actress. But now she has changed alot and lost 50 pounds with the Jenny Craig program and is still losing more and more. She is starting to look good again and feel good and confident about herself. She hit a wrong turn but she is back on the right track and looks better than ever. I think Kirstie is very pretty and am glad she is getting back to her healthy, normal weight. For more information go to Kirsties Blog at

In addition to Kirstie Alley, Destiny's Child (Beyonce, Michelle, and Kelly) did their last and final concert together. Even though the group is breaking up, they are still very close. Their fans are very upset, and i am upset too, but i also think that Beyonce is better off alone, as well as the rest of them. What do you guys think? The reason i think they are better off is because Beyonce has become so successful by herself, as well as the other girls doing their own songs.

One last thing i want to say is to keep helping Katrina victums. More news has come up that children are missing their families and are being raised by other relatives. This tragedy is still going on and we need to continue to help. Anything you think of to send to the victums, please do because something, anything is better than nothing.

More News on Katrina, and the latest gossip and fashion of the Celebrities

This edition of People, dated September 19th, 2005, happens to be a special double issue. I was very excited to find this out because there is double the amount of gossip, as well as celebrity pictures, and much more. In addition to the gossip, the stories of Hurricane Katrina live on. This tragedy has touched so many lives, and People showed this throughout their magazine. The pictures of Katrina shown in the magazine are so touching and the stories told have such an impact on me, as I am sure most of you.

Let me begin, once again, by talking about Katrina. This story seems to be the topic of the world today. It is all over the news, all over sports channels, in magazines, and even the headline of most websites. Every where you go there are charities being held to raise money, Universities and Colleges paying for victims tuition, celebrities and sports players, and so many others all donating and raising money for the victims. The stories told in People really reach out to you. The stories show peoples homes destroyed, families torn apart, the loss of everything meaningful and valuable to the victims, and so much more. Imagine all your memories, pictures, and so many other irreplaceable items being lost. I know I would be lost without my pictures from my past and all the memories they bring to me. These victims lost everything you can think of. Everyone is doing the best they can to help and that is all we anyone can do now. There memories will never be replaced but at least we can start by raising money and doing something about this sudden tragedy. To learn more on Hurricane Katrina you can go to and type in Katrina in the search engine. You can also go to to donate money to the victims.

Now let me begin to fill you in on all the gossip you want to hear. Now you all know that this is a special double issue, which means that there is double the gossip, pictures, hairstyles, some tips and the new trends. So where do I begin? I will start by talking about the new fashion that Celebes seem to be following these days. The trend of the week looks to be the cowgirl style. Ever since Jessica Simpson came starred in the movie Dukes of Hazzard, we have been seeing the cowboy boots on so many celebrities. I think it is so funny how so many of the celebrities follow one another's style.

Not only do they follow the clothing style, but also hairstyles. One celebrity will get hair extensions, then 10 more will follow. Or one will dye their hair another color and then everyone will be dying there hair their opposite color. But I guess if you are a celebrity then you can do whatever you want. I mean I am sure most of you, including myself, get people magazine, or style magazine, and many other just to see what the new trends of celebrities are. However, I know the whole cow boots style is out but I am not too sure if I can see myself in them. Also, celebrities always seem to have a different brand name bag in every single picture they take. I do not think that I have seen a celebrity have the same bag/purse in any picture, well maybe some, and I have seen so many celebrity pictures.
Now I know I said that celebrities always have the hottest styles out, well I did not mean all the time. There are some outfits that I have seen on celebrities that I think to myself, "What were they thinking," and People magazine definitely points them out. They have a section labeled "Best and Worst Dressed", which can be very embarrassing for celebrities, but I do not think they care too much. If you want to find more about celebrity styles and the new fashion trends go to and you will find many neat and different styles.

Last but not least, I want to fill you in on come upcoming features (T.V. and Movies)...

  • Just Like Heaven (Starring Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo)-This Sept. in theatres

Hurricane Katrina, the VMA's, and much more...

*People Magazine, dated September 12th, 2005, talked mostly about hurricane Katrina in this weekly edition with a touch on the VMA's (the Video Music Awards), hosted by P-Diddy, and also a touch on Celebrity pictures and updates on new gossip. However, I want to begin by talking about hurricane Katrina, aside from the Celebrity gossip, because it is one of the major issues going on in the world today and People Magazine focused much of their time talking of this horrible attack. The graphic pictures are shown of families torn apart, homes destroyed and deaths of many individuals, as well as leaving more than one million people homeless, with over $25 billion in damage. The pictures and stories are so touching to everyone and I do not think anyone could have ever imagined the damage that this hurricane has done. After Florida was hit, everything turned into a disaster. When the Hurricane hit the Gulf Coast, it was said to have been a Category Four Hurricane, which is the second most severe hurricane possible. Many had evacuated New Orleans but there were also many that did not. This horrible incident has affected many and all we can do now is try to help and send money, food, clothing, etc. to those in need and those who are left with nothing.

*Aside from Hurricane Katrina, People Magazine seems to get into the VMA's, along with more gossip on the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt relationship. I want to first talk about the VMA's, I did not get the chance to watch the VMA's but I know they had to have been good if the show was hosted by P-Diddy...he always seems to be a good host and attract attention. The VMA pictures showed many different types of fashion styles, some of which were a little over the edge, like Jessica Simpsons outfit, but many of you may like that dress style. As for performances, Jamie Foxx and Kanye West's performance "Gold Digger" seemed to be a big hit at the VMA's and I am sure it was because that is a top song as of right now.

*Now aside of the VMA's, I just want to say a few things about the story that many people love to follow up on, and that is the Angelina and Brad relationship. The couple may say that they are not together, but come on, we all know that there is something there. Brad has been seen on vacations with Angelina and even around taking care of her two children. I don't exactly know how I feel about Brad's new romance with Angelina because I feel bad for Jennifer Aniston. The media makes Jennifer out to be the innocent one and Brad to be the one without any upset emotions on their breakup. However, you can not always believe what the media has to say about Celebrities, but People Magazine is a well-known and well believed magazine, so I tend to follow up and believe their stories that are published around the world.
