PS. Catherine Zeta-Jones is not a bitch to work for. Neither is Beyonce.

I know it’s only Monday and we usually play the Photo Assumption Game on Fridays but this one was too good to pass up.

It’s Patrick Dempsey and his wife, Scowlface, at a screening of Made of Honour today in London. They look thrilled, non? Like… totally so happy to be married. Anyone looking at this photo is probably rushing out to get married now. Right?
But seriously… the woman looks even more miserable than usual. Is there something troubling her? Is it the close proximity of Kevin Spacey who lives in London? But times have changed Mrs D!

"Leftover Blow" revealed


Check out Sienna Miller at the NME Awards in LA last night looking … a little out of it. Sienna’s been in LA shooting GI Joe. Maybe it’s the long days and nights on set? Oh but wait. Didn’t she just come back from hols with Rhys Ifans? Never mind, I hear her role is quite physical. Must be all the stunts and sh*t.

Still, she shouldn’t have to look very far for a leftover pick-me-up. Studio craft services are usually quite generous.

PS. Victoria Beckham isn’t the bitch to work for. Also not Kimora. Too obvious. And not Rachael Ray. Who cares??? And this time it isn’t Courteney Cox, though that’s not to say she doesn’t have staffing issues of her own.

Now here’s a girl who understands carpet etiquette – Ugly Gorgessity America Ferrera at the Enchanted premiere so cute in jeans and a natural face. Do you love her? I love her.

As for her show, produced by the incomparable Salma Hayek, have sources telling me that she’s a hellion to work for. Rumours about mistreatment of staff and atrocious demands.

Really? My Salma? Do you believe it?

Salma at 40

Does this look like 40 to you? Definitely not to me. But it does look like a very, very beautiful Salma Hayek at the National Domestic Violence Hotline event on Thursday - so adorable, so endearing, so impassioned…so mystifyingly single.

You think George Clooney could handle this? Most of you don't approve of George saving Kidman. So will you approve of George saving Salma? Or the other way around?

"A Bitch to Work For" clue


Salma Hayek: breaking the glass ceiling

As gaygay Wentie would say: Brava Salma, Brava Brava.

Salma Hayek is now the head of a brand new production company financed by MGM “specializing in Latino movies appealing to wider, mainstream audiences.” The newly formed Ventanazul will release 2 to 4 projects a year showcasing Latino/Latina talent, capitalizing on the critical acclaim of Salma’s Frida and the runaway success of her Ugly Betty. The deal is similar to what the GMD negotiated with MGM six months ago, making Salma one of the most powerful and respected women in film.

In other words: Salma Hayek is Tom Cruise - only smarter, saner, sassier, savvier, and much easier to look at.

A new lady mogul in Hollywood…

Love, love, love.

Successful multi-hyphenate, super well connected personally and professionally with a reputation for being kind and compassionate and evolved.


Maybe for the media and maybe her fashionable celebrity friends, maybe for investors, maybe for executives, but some of her employees would vehemently disagree.

Turns out she’s a little bit of a Miranda Priestly when she comes in to the office. Starts snapping her fingers right away, never remembers anyone’s name, everyone is treated like a personal assistant, dispatched to do her bidding instead of actually getting down to work, recently held up a creative meeting because she wanted whole milk and not cream with her coffen, then 20 minutes into the meeting, she held it up again when her cell phone rang, proceeded to keep everyone waiting another 15 minutes while she discussed measurements on a dress she was having made, did not apologise when she clicked off the line, and instead embarrassed a staffer who returned to the room after having excused himself to take an urgent phone call when she was taking hers.

But all that is rather pedestrian. There are no shortage of bitches in Hollywood. In the grand scheme of things, all that is pretty harmless.

Until you get into job security.

A pregnant member of her staff was scheduled to give birth around crunch time. Her boss’s convenient remedy for the situation was to not hire her back when everyone else returned to work. At the very least she was honest. She told her straight up – your due date doesn’t work for me. I don’t think you’ll be able to contribute in the same way you did before.

So the employee hired a lawyer, a lawsuit loomed, and the boss bitch had to backpedal to the tune of a handsome pay-off (confidential, of course) and several seminars on employee rights although it apparently hasn’t helped.

She’s still super stingy, to the point where she complains about the quality of craft services (it’s too good) and even supplies, haggles over offering vacation pay, and will not foot the bill for staff celebrations and events, even though she regularly hosts lavish affairs at her own mansion for those privileged enough to be invited.

Crazier still, she seems to be clueless when it comes to tact. The other day she said to one of her producers – if you need something to do this weekend, my assistant could use some help planning our reception. You could stay for dinner if you want.

When he declined, she looked at him like he was closing the door to the opportunity of a lifetime.

Before you ask, it’s not the Mighty Opes.
