GOSSIP 2 GO 11/22KIRSTEN DRUNKST...FINDS NEW DRINKING BUDDY
FRIENDS of Kirsten Dunst are concerned. The once wholesome "Spider-Man" girlfriend has become a wobbly staple on the Hollywood club scene, and is now hanging out with the star synonymous with pushing the party envelope: Tara Reid. The two showed up together at club promoter Brent Bolthouse's party at L.A.'s Privilege, a week after Dunst hooked up at the same club with Leonardo DiCaprio. And some Web sites are now calling her "Kirsten Drunkst."
ANGELA BASSETT BATTLES ASH SO WE DON'T HAVE TO
Olay has announced that Angela Bassett will star in a national television and print campaign to promote its new lotion product designed specifically for African American women.
Olay's Quench Body Lotion, made with shea butter formula and an exclusive amino-vitamin formula to get at that ash, purports to eliminate the need for constant reapplication.
CHRIS TUCKER GET 20 MILLION DOLLARS FOR RUSH HOUR 3
It took an offer of $20 million against 20% of the gross to get Tucker to sign on. Under the deal, the actor has also agreed to give up script approval, which was a major obstacle in previous negotiations. According to Daily Variety, Tucker agreed to let go of script approval on the condition that the final draft matches what was pitched by returning screenwriter Jeff Nathanson.
Tucker's co-star, Jackie Chan, will get $15 million against 15% of the gross, and will also own the film's distribution rights in China and Hong Kong.
Brett Ratner also returns as director, fresh from helming "X-Men 3." He'll get an increase in the upfront part of the $5 million-against-5%-gross deal he pocketed for "Rush Hour 2."
New Line has the option to greenlight the film by May, based on script approval and a budget the studio hopes won't exceed $120 million. The film will go into production next summer in the U.S. and Paris for a summer 2007 release.
MARY J. BLIGE DOES NOT LIKE CHRISTINA AGUILERA
Mary J. Blige has vowed to never record a song with Christina Aguilera because she feels that she is "rude". Recalling their first meeting, Mary said that upon greeting each other, Aguilera extended her hand to Mary as though she wanted her to kiss it, which was taken as an extreme insult by Blige. Listen to a clip of Blige's remarks from Gossipish.com.
SPEAKING OF THE DIRRTY GIRL..CHRISTINA,NOT MARY
You had to figure Christina Aguilera's nuptials would get a little "Dirrty."
I hear her HUSBAND, Jordan Bratman, made it clear at their Napa Valley wedding last weekend that he was more than qualified to satisfy the bride.
Guests at Friday's rehearsal dinner nearly choked on their sushi when Bratman raised his glass and thanked his parents for "my good looks and large COCK."
Jordan's brother and best man, Josh, and his father, Jack, both stood up and proudly corroborated the groom's endowment. Another bride might have wished that her future in-laws would speak a little less and hold their peace. But, whenever the subject of Jordan's manhood arose, "Christina would just smile and nod," a spy tells THE DISH.
