Hookup Alert: Rashida Jones and President Obama’s Head of Speechwriting Jon Favreau

rashida-jones-jon-favreau We don't know how we missed this, but apparently Ga Ga girl Rashida Jones has a new man--and he is not on The Office (ahem, John Krasinski!). The Parks and Recreation star was recently spotted out and about with President Barack Obama's Director of Speechwriting, 27-year-old Jon Favreau. Here's the scoop on their D.C. affair: "Rashida and Jon were hanging out in an exclusive bar in the Georgetown area," says a blogger for Best Week Ever. "Our tipster reports that the two were attached at the hip all evening, until they starting making out with each other at the bar. Eventually, they left with one another." We're loving this meeting of brains and beauty! PHOTO: Photoshopped by Best Week Ever Blog

Gossip Girl Watch: Jesus Takes The Wheel As Poppy Plots A Ponzi Scheme

leighton_meester_chace_crawford The Gossip Girl gang is all here, Blair, Chuck, Nate, Serena even Georgina, and they're scheming and plotting together like true Upper East Side friends. But can born-again Georgina take the wheel back from Jesus and steer everyone out of a financial mess?! Here are Blindie's TOP 10 moments from Gossip Girl's "Wrath of Con" episode:

  1. Poppy Lifton (Tamara Feldman) is using Gabriel (Armie Hammer) to run a Ponzi scheme on Serena's friends and even Rufus Humphrey (Matthew Settle) gets caught up in it. Because Ponzi schemes aren't just for Jewish people anymore.
  2. We love how Lily Bass (Kelly Rutherford) would rather pay everyone off and prevent scandal and a ruined social image rather than go after the real crooks.
  3. Rufus Humphrey plans to surprise Lily with dinner and pop the question so he wheels the food to her ritzy Manhattan apartment in a rickety wagon! Hasn't he ever heard of delivery?! Take that old lady wagon back to Brooklyn!
  4. Last season everyone wanted Serena (Blake Lively), now Blair (Leighton Meester) is in high demand as Nate (Chace Crawford) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) fight for her attention.
  5. Can Dan Humphrey's (Penn Bagdley) big mouth ruin anymore plots?!
  6. Blair asks Chuck to declare his love for her or let her go. Of course Chuck does not let his guard down and he lets Blair go, then admits to Serena that it's because he loves her and can't make her happy.
  7. Georgina's cell phone ring is a "praise the Lord" song.
  8. The big plan to bust Poppy goes south as Serena is hauled away by the cops and Poppy trots off with Georgina's bible money.
  9. We lost count of the Jesus mentions after the first half hour, but here are tour faves: "I gave up my old ways when I let Jesus take the wheel," Georgina tells Blair; "I will never forgive you for what you did and neither will Jesus," Blair screams at Georgina; "You can tell Jesus that the bitch is back," as Georgina finishes the job that Chuck and Blair couldn't and goes after Poppy.
  10. How good and kind of cheesy was the teaser for the next episode featuring flashbacks of Lily and Rufus in their teen years and a performance by No Doubt! Yes, it's a pilot for that Gossip Girl spin-off about Lily's wild years.

Chace Crawford And Zoe Kravitz Filming Joel Shumacher’s Twelve In New York

chace_crawford3zoe_kravitz2 Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford and Blindie's ga ga starlet Zoe Kravitz are in New York this week filming the rich kid drama Twelve with director Joel Shumacher. Crawford plays White Mike, the overcoat-wearing, private school drop-out turned drug dealer and we're hoping Kravitz is playing Sara Ludlow, the "hottest girl in school." Adapted from the 2002 novel by then 17 year-old teen Nick McDonell, Twelve also stars 50 Cent, Emma Roberts, Rory Culkin, Ellen Barkin and Kiefer Sutherland. Blindie just loves over-privileged teenagers behaving badly! PHOTO CREDIT: Just Jared

Ga Ga: Zoe Saldana Makes a Fashionable Splash in Paris with Star Trek Costars

startrek-paris-zoesaldana-chrispine-zacharyquinto-apphoto.jpg The stars of the highly anticipated sci-fi prequel Star Trek stepped out for a group photo call in Paris, France Tuesday--but no one shined more than New York-bred beauty Zoe Saldana. One of our fave Ga Ga Girls (who's playing Lt. Uhura) hit the red carpet with director and producer J.J. Abrams and hunky costars Eric Bana, Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine. Of her Trekkie following, she recently told Esquire, "I've already had a [fan] come up to the door of my house. And I had a driver for another movie who brought all of his Star Trek memorabilia with him. He opened the trunk and there was this shrine. He had stacks of pictures he wanted me to sign. He ended up being the nicest guy, but it definitely freaked me out at first."

Star Trek‘s Zoe Saldana Talks Fashion, Dancing & the Dominican Republic in In Style Fashion Spread

zoe-saldana-star-trek-instyle-april2009-scan1 Star Trek beauty Zoe Saldana posed for a high-flying circus spread in the April issue of In Style (coincidentally their "color issue" ha!), where she discussed how growing up in New York and the Dominican Republic influenced her style. "I learned to embrace color, drama and flair," the actress, who plays Lieutenant Uhura in J. J. Abrams's much-anticipated prequel, said. "It's my nostalgia for a very important time in my life." Saldana also revealed her dancing roots (she got her start as a broke Off-Broadway dancer; and remember Center Stage?): "I got so much out of being a dancer. The stillness of it. The discipline. The dedication." "Clothes can send a powerful message," Saldana added. "You don't have to be on a movie set to tell a story. You can play a part on the red carpet or at a photo shoot." zoe-saldana-star-trek-instyle-april2009-scans

Ga Ga: How Little Lola Lourdes Leon Took Spotlight From Mama Madonna in Malawi

madonna-lourdes-in-malawi2009.jpg We confess: when Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon was born we thought, "What an unfortunate child to have to grow up in Madonna's spotlight with that uni-brow!" But after images of Lourdes alongside her tight-faced cougar mom in Malawi surfaced, we forgot about Madge's failed attempt to get little David Banda an orphan sis, and all we could think was, "My how Lourdes has grown!" The blossoming 12-year-old (whose father is mom's former personal trainer Carlos Leon) looked like a ga ga gorgeous gazelle, and in honor of her beauty, we're listing our fave fashion pics of Madonna's stunning, formerly quirky (remember her dorky horn-rimmed glasses?), fashion tween queen. Mark our words, she's gonna be a star! Matching Knit Caps madonna-lourdes-knit-caps “She doesn’t need my guidance when it comes to fashion," Madonna said of her daughter's “sort of goth punk" style. "She doesn’t listen to me.” In Malawi in 2007 madonna-david-lourdes-malawi-2007 "I can get my older daughter to babysit for me," Madonna said of big sis watching little David on the Today show. "Both kids are really great with him." Gucci for a Cause with Mom lourdes-madonna-gucci-unicef-feb2008 Lola was front and center at Madonna and Gucci's UNICEF fundraiser for the kids of Malawi in February 2008, even meeting Alicia Keys and Vince Vaughn. Madonna said she "tends to walk into a room and demand that everyone pay attention to" her! The Leons in Leather lourdes-carlos-leon-leather "She's into shopping, fashion, anything girly," Leon told PEOPLE of his little Lola. "She's my princess. I spoil her with love—and American Apparel and Urban Outfitters." Lourdes Mania in Malawi madonna-lourdes-malawi-2009 Granted Madonna came for another Malawi baby, but it was a leggy Lola (who will soon outgrow mom) who got the Today show talking--they even dedicated a segment to her: "Lourdes has grown up!" anchor Matt Lauer said.
