The launch party for the new Blackberry Pearl 8130 Smartphone, which was held at the IAC Building, New York City yesterday, certainly brought out the cleavage on display.
Supporting the event with their decolletage were the likes of Natasha Bedingfield, photo above, and Rumer Willis, photo below.
Needless to say Paris Hilton was there as well, but she gets enough publicity.
As for the phone itself. Here's the official BlackBerry Pearl 8130 overview:
"The BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8130 smartphone is designed to help you do everything you want with your life. It comes complete with advanced phone features,And if you want the 8130 specifications you'll find them here.
|The Mirror reports that Cheryl Cole is to move out of the marital home following the stories about her 'cheating husband' Ashley Cole. She is to head for a 'secret location to consider her future.'|
Friends of Cheryl say that she needs to be alone to 'work out if she wants to save her 18 month marriage.' This is sad as she recently told OK! magazine that she wanted to 'start working on that baby' as she wanted to be a 'young mum.'
Cheryl is stopping her promotional work for Girls Aloud as she 'can't handle being interrogated about her marriage.'
Ashley (sometimes called Cashley or Trashley) Cole must be an idiot!

Twenty year old Edinburgh youth politician John Loughton won the £50,000 ($100,000) prize as winner of the UK Big Brother: Celebrity Hijack. He gained 54% of the vote with the extra bendy Emilia Arata, 18, as runner up. Sad thing is no one really cares - the show was a disaster with few viewers.
Laura O'Toole says that she has split up with boyfriend Daniel Radcliffe. The reason is put down as Daniel's demanding work schedule. Laura explains, "Daniel and I are still good friends and have a good time when we see each other. But we just have to be realistic"
It's reported that Michelle Williams has put all of her work commitments on hold so that she can grieve for Heath Ledger. The couple dated while filming Brokeback Mountain but split up in late September 07.
Mitch, Amy Winehouse's father has reported on his daughter. He said, "Amy is very ill and is suffering horrific withdrawal symptoms - shivering and constantly throwing up. Her body is expelling all the rubbish. One thing helping Amy is her Marilyn Monroe films. Amy loves Some Like It Hot. She's a huge fan of Monroe and thinks she's wonderful."
We wish Amy well.
Further to yesterday's post Cheryl Cole has said that she wants to meet the girl, Aimee Walton, who claims to have bedded Ashley.
She thinks this is the only way to find out what really happened. She wants a woman to woman talk.
All well and good but as we said yesterday other girls have alleged relationships with Ashley as well.
UK Big Brother winner Brian Belo has said that it was him that ended the relationship with fellow housemate Amanda Marchant. He said that they were 'just too different'.

|So what do Cindy Jackson, photo on left, and the Brazilian model, Angela Bismarchi, have in common?|
Okay so plastic surgery isn't exactly uncommon nowadays but Cindy Jackson holds the world record of 47 lots of surgery (verified in the Guinness World Record Book). And as for Angela Bismarchi she's coming up fast on the rails as she's about to have her 42nd op.
Angela Bismarchi, that's her photo on the right, is famous in Brazil and is heavily involved in the Rio Carnival where she will lead a samba team of 300 people. She is their Percussion Queen.
For 2008 she wants to look more Oriental so is having her eyes made to have more of a slant. This is because of the theme of her Rio team, Porto de Pedra, which is 100 years of Japanese immigration.
Last year Angela was the talk of the Carnival when her only item of clothing fell off during the parade. Though very little is left to the imagination by many dancers nudity is officially banned. Fortunately (for her) she managed to pull on a spare thong.
As for Cindy Jackson she has reportedly spent $100,000 on cosmetic surgery since 1988. She is a pioneer in anti-aging and has written two best selling books Living Doll and Cosmetic Surgery Secrets.
David Beckham's Condoms
For once David Beckham isn't getting his share. A Chinese condom manufacturer is using his name to promote their brand of condoms - and without his permission.
A Beckham spokesperson confirmed, "It's not an official brand."
The company making the condoms claim in their advertising that men who use the contraceptive (which has become a top seller) 'will score in bed like David does on the pitch.' Only on the pitch?
Some Chinese fans are supposedly trying to get the named condoms banned because, "We do not want Beckham to think the Chinese people are disrespecting him. We love him here."

Gemma Bissix is joining UK soap Eastenders to add some more glamour. It's actually re-joining because Gemma played Clare, Nigel's stepdaughter as a child actor.
She's now 25 and all grown up plus Gemma had the experience of being in Hollyoaks in her role as Clare Cunningham. In the 2007 Soap Awards she won the Villain of the Year for this part - that's her with her trophy in the photo above. The photo below shows her in a glamour pose.
About her Eastenders role she said, "It's a good move for me and something I didn't think would happen. I'm going back for nine months and then we are going to see what happens. All I have been told is that Clare is going to live with Dot and she's going to be a handful."

Introducing Cora Skinner
Los Angeles Superior Court has warned that Britney Spears will face trial on a charge of driving without a valid licence if proceedings are delayed.
Judge TK Herman did however grant an adjournment until February 20th but no further delays will be allowed. This all goes back to the time Britney hit a parked car.
The actress Tara Reid has put the boot into Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan by saying they deserved the punishment they received for breaking the law. She reckons she's never done anything to deserve any bad press and isn't really a party animal as often portrayed. Mmmm! She said:
"What have I ever really done? Dance on a table? When Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton got their DUIs (drinking under the influence arrests) they got punished, they deserved it.Naughty photo of Tara at a party here - over 18's only.

Christine Beatty photo on right.
But lots of texts have now come to light such as:
Oct 3, 2002 From Kilpatrick

I hope you feel that way for a long time. In case you haven't noticed, I am madly in love with you, too!

The new James Bond film starring Daniel Craig is to be called Quantum of Solace. The title is taken from a collection of short stories written by Ian Fleming back in the early sixties.

There are nude Olga Kurylenko photos here if over 18.
The very wealthy Bono has visited U.S Defence Secretary Robert Gates at the Pentagon to discuss Africa and the fight against global poverty. They discussed things for twenty minutes so a lot of very poor people in Africa must be sleeping a lot easier.
Talking about poverty and Bono it's reported that the Spice Girls will have earned £50 million ($100,000) from just their London concerts alone. Other than Victoria Beckham the girls needed a financial boost so tickets at London's arena O2 were priced at £75 ($150) each.
Perhaps Bono and the Spice Girls could really help out Africa if they wanted to. David Beckham did some good recently.
Britney Spears and Paris Hilton
Celebrity brothel owner Dennis Hof would like Britney Spears and Paris Hilton to head for a TV reality show as hookers.
Hof owns Moonlite Bunnyranch in Nevada and was star of the Cathouse series. Seems he reckons the Britney and Paris have what it takes to make it at his legalised whorehouse.
Hof said, "I think Paris and Britney would be fun - and they're both tramps. Hell, they're giving it away for free, so they might as well get paid for it!"It'd make a great show. I'll speak to (U.S. cable TV network) HBO and see if we can make it happen."
Not really much you can add to that!
It's said that Sir Elton John is suing business manager Bob Halley - though reasons are, as yet, unknown. A high Court writ has been issued.
Contestant Latoya was voted out of the UK TV show Big Brother Hijacked last night. But does anyone really care? Nope. It's been a disaster of a show with few viewers. The word 'dull' comes to mind.
