"Holiday Riddle" #2 clue


Hugh Jackman's Strange Setup
Fri., Dec. 12, 2008 10:32 AM PST by TED CASABLANCA

What the ef's up with Hugh Jackman, his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, and Hugh's always-around biz, partner, John Palermo? Jeez, folks are talking!

But first, a little background: H.J. recently gave an interview to People in which Jackman himself brought up the "gay, gay and gay" rumors, only to shoot them right back down, saying he's straight. And then, buried in some inedible copy about Jackman's diet (fish, salad, protein shakes), was the most delicious little morsel: Jackman explained to the People reporter the origin of the band he wears opposite his wife's wedding band: "It was given to me by John when we started our production company," revealed H.J. "In Sanskrit is written the basic principles of our company."

In Sanskrit, no less. Very clubby. Very inside. Very mysterious.

And since John's gone from being Bryan Singer's assistant on X-Men to Hugh's publicist to living partner (they all live on the same grounds at some of their internationally located homes) to producing partner, and since they always go out together, I asked around.

Here's what some of H.J.'s buds said:

"Uh, can't the public see that has to be one of the closest business relationships in the world?" asked a biz pal to Jackman. "I mean, John sits right next to him and Deborra on the other side for every awards ceremony. She's years his senior, they have two adopted children, he lived in a bungalow on their property in L.A. There's nothing ordinary about that troupe."

True enough. But one of Jackman's close Australian buds tells me that any weirdness is with John alone:

"Deb has the same ring, it's to commemorate Seed Productions—not his love for Palermo, who I must say is looking more and more bizarre these days. He was in full makeup the other night!"

Another close bud to Jackman simply says: "I don't know what the hell's going on with Hugh. He's his own man, that's for sure."

Which is why we love him, right? And after all, if Angie Jolie can screw with the lot of us as to what's really cookin' down below for her (despite this current clan of all things Pitt), why the hell can't Hugh?

I just can't believe more people aren't talking about it. Probably because Hugh, who I've met socially but never interviewed, couldn't have been more the charmer. He knows how to work it.


Sit DOWN Centaur

Please. These ‘roidy motherf-ckers and their massive egos. First reaction when the ego takes a bruising is to call up the boys and pull their dicks out in retaliation. Who else but Alex Rodriguez?

He and Manslinger Kate Hudson are no longer together. You’ve seen Kate in action. Through Owen Wilson, through Justin Timberlake, through Lance Armstrong, through Adam Scott… Kate doesn’t look back, and she most certainly doesn’t cling.

Now that it’s over though, nursing a bruised ego, ARod needs to make you think that he was the one who walked. Which is why his friends are talking to the tabloids, trying to spin the split like it was HIS decision. According to US Weekly, a source close to ARod reveals that:

"Kate seemed compelled to track and follow his every move. He's just coming off of a 13-year relationship with his ex-wife and a recent divorce. He has two lovely children with his ex-wife, and that requires a certain amount of responsibility. She gave him ultimatums that a newly divorced father can't meet."

Nice and sexist, non? Every time a relationship doesn’t work out it’s because the bitch wants more, more, more.

This is not Kate Hudson. Trust.

Still, ARod has face to save. And he also must placate the Yankee fans who want an explanation about why their good luck charm is no longer around. Get ready for it:

Apparently ARod was tired of Kate’s attention whoring. She wanted to be in the spotlight all the time.

"It was a turnoff to have a girlfriend who always wanted to be on camera. Alex wanted someone who was more interested in building a long-term relationship than just building their profile."

Alex Rodriguez wanted privacy and less attention…what? So he didn’t know Kate Hudson was a movie star before he started sleeping with her? He’d never heard of her? This is the same ARod who dated Madonna? How do you date f-cking Madonna and want to be low key?

F-cking dumbass obviously doesn’t know how to lie. Because this is some of the worst bullsh-t EVER.

Looks like ARod’s douche is back. It took a break for a while but you can’t hold it down forever.

There’s a juicy one coming next week but chew on this for now? Please don’t be mad at me for enjoying New York too much.

Which recently singled douchebag’s publicist has been calling every tabloid begging them to print his version of the breakup in order to protect his ego? The rep has been desperately trying to play competing publications against each other to make sure his client comes out of it with his penis size preserved which only reinforces the widely held belief that his client is a giant prick – in personality, and not necessarily in his pants.

Everyone knows about this delightful action star’s relationship with the head of his company and that his wife isn’t really his lover. But the boyfriend is jealous and overprotective and now his hiring practices are raising some eyebrows. He will not hire anyone prettier/hunkier/more stylish than he is for fear of tempting his famous partner.
