LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenanigans
Damon In The Oval Office?: Alec Baldwin is considering running for Mayor of New York City, so why not Matt Damon for President! Filmmaker and the always-politically outspoken Michael Moore was asked about viable third party candidate ideas, and the director quickly replied with the Oscar winner’s name. “I think that [Matt Damon] has been very courageous in not caring about who he offends by saying the things that need to be said here, and if you want to win, the Republicans have certainly shown the way — that when you run someone who is popular, you win. Sometimes even when you run an actor, you win,” Moore said during a virtual town hall hosted by Firedoglake.com. Matt has our vote, especially if the “Ocean’s” cast is named as his cabinet… Secretary of State Clooney anyone?
A Shia/JoBro Snub?: Shia LaBeouf and Joe Jonas crossed paths yesterday in West Hollywood, Calif., but the stars appear to have not noticed one another – or was it a mutual snub? According to Us Weekly, the pair did not say hello or nod at each other. Granted, Shia is sporting a major beard and Joe was sans Kevin and Nick – making them both much less recognizable. Check out the possible star snub, HERE!
Is A Kardashian The New Pippa?: E! Online is asking, “Is Kourtney Kardashian the New Pippa Middleton?” and we’d like to quickly and firmly say, “No.” Sister Kim Kardashian might be getting married soon and while she’ll have her good looking sisters serve as her bridesmaids (just like Kate and Pippa Middleton), likening Kourtney to Pippa is a bit of a stretch. Plus, while Pippa may have stolen some of the spotlight from her sister’s big day, it’s hard to believe anyone will outshine Kim when she walks down the aisle.
Bar Gets Dirty!: Supermodel Bar Refaeli reminded us all that she looks good no matter what. Check out Bar covered in mud while enjoying some time in the sun at The Dead Sea on Wednesday, HERE and HERE!
