PREGNANT ANNA FARIS CELEBRATES SAMSUNG WITH ASHLEE, JOE, AND MORE


Anna Faris showed her baby bump in a tight green dress yesterday at the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III in LA. After hitting the red carpet, she managed to catch up — and maybe get some parenting tips — from pal Ashlee Simpson. Ashlee had fun at the bash, tweeting that she loved the "gorgeous views" from the private residence and that the band "Alabama Shakes are rockin'!" Anna and her husband, Chris Pratt, are expecting their first baby later this year. They recently revealed that the coming bundle of joy will be a boy.
True Blood and Magic Mike hunk Joe Manganiello made the rounds as well, and even shared a photo of him having a great time with "b-girl" Anna Kendrick. Anna headed West after attending Tuesday's Coach party on the High Line in NYC. Chatting up Joe wasn't her only excitement last night — Anna also posted on Twitter, "Just tried Taco Bell's Doritos taco. I can see why they sold 100 million of these already. This is no joke." Other celebs like Dave and Odette Annable also checked out the bash, saying hello to his 666 Park Avenue costar Robert Buckley.

KATIE AND SURI HAVE A WHOLLY EXHAUSTING CITY DAY


Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise had a jam-packed day in NYC yesterday. The girls kicked things off with an outing to Chelsea Piers, where Suri takes gymnastics classes whenever they're in the Big Apple. Next up, they swung by Whole Foods to pick out treats like strawberries and celery. The day was tiring for both Katie and Suri. Katie swung by a Starbucks for a pick-me-up, and later, Suri was so tired that she needed to be carried into their apartment. It's the end of a busy NY week for the duo. They've been hanging out while dad Tom Cruise works on Oblivion in Iceland. He was able to temporarily leave the set to promote Rock of Ages, but despite his efforts, the musical underwhelmed at the box office. Katie and Suri will pack up and head to LA by next month. On July 28, Katie's cohosting the Dizzy Feet Foundation's annual gala at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in LA.

KATE BECKINSALE SHOWS HER ABS AND TALKS FIGHTING JESSICA BIEL IN WOMEN'S HEALTH

Kate Beckinsale Women's Health Pictures
Kate Beckinsale bares her abs on the July/August cover of Women's Health, which hits newsstands June 26. Her fit physique is partially thanks to all the training necessary for her upcoming action film, Total Recall. The movie, a remake of Arnold Schwarzenegger's 1990 film of the same name, will be released on Aug. 3. The blockbuster also stars Colin Farrell andJessica Biel, the latter of whom shared some intense fight scenes with Kate. In the issue, Kate spoke about going hand to hand with a female costar, being known as an action star, and the limits of training. Here's more from Kate Beckinsale in Women's Health:
On her fight scene with Jessica Biel: "It’s not like a naked, porno, mud-wrestling-in-a-bar sort of fight; it's a real fight. I did find that fighting a woman was very different from when I've fought men. There was a lot of 'I didn't hurt you, did I?' 'Oh, I'm sorry about that!' 'No, it was my fault!'"
On being known as an action star: "It's slightly strange being predominantly known for something that's not necessarily my sensibility, but I've never had a plan."
On her first experience with a trainer:: "It was a full-on boys' gym: 'How much can you press? Go harder!' That kind of thing. They use to have a garbage can between the machines so people could throw up into it and then continue working out. That just seems far too gruesome. I didn't want to be in shape that much."

NIGHTCLUB TO TONY PARKER The Drake/Chris Brown Fight Is Not Our Fault!

0623_brown_parker_drake_getty
W.i.P. nightclub feels it's absurd that Tony Parker is suing them over the Chris Brown/Drake fight ... saying there is no way they could have predicted what went down ... sources directly connected to the club tell TMZ. 

Parker filed a $20 million lawsuit against the club on Thursday, claiming the club should have known "there was bad blood between Drake and Brown" and only fueled matters by selling them and their posse alcohol.

But sources close to the club tell TMZ that Drake and Chris Brown are not prone to such violence, with one source saying, "Chris Brown and Drake are not Biggie and Tupac."

We're told the club feels the fight was out of their control and they did everything they could to stop it as quickly as possible. 

Our sources say the club finds Tony's allegation they were understaffed to be ridiculous ... saying they had around 15 security guards working that night and the owners personally choose who goes in the club and who doesn't.

So far, no charges have been filed related to the brawl, but the case is still under investigation by the NYPD.

LINDSAY LOHAN Lifetime Producers Worried Sick -- THEY DON'T GET IT!

0623_lilo_lifetimeSources close to Lindsay Lohan's Lifetime movie tell TMZ ... producers have been in hysterics these past few weeks over LiLo's latest hijinks, and we're left to wonder ... WHY?!?!?!

According to our sources, producers were particularly upset over her car accident on PCH. We're told the producers have five big concerns:

-- The company that insures the movie might bail
-- Her probation could be violated for lying to the cops
-- She could be prosecuted for lying to police
-- She could crash her car again
-- She's going to clubs where bad things happen

But here's the thing ... when has a Lifetime movie ever gotten this much press (besides the one where Jennifer Love Hewitt played a hooker)? And don't they know ... nothing bad ever REALLY happens to Lindsay.

$10 says "Liz & Dick" is the most watched program in the network's history.

CHRISTIE BRINKLEY Taunts Ex's New Wife Outside of Court

0623_christie-brinkley-peter-cook_gettyChristie Brinkley showed a little bit of crazy Friday in her never-ending legal war with ex Peter Cook  ... when she snapped at Peter's new wife outside court, saying, "When you find out he’s been cheating on you, I'll be here for you."

Brinkley followed up the insult, says the NY Post, by then tapping Suzanne Shaw on the head in a sign of "mock tenderness." Shaw then allegedly shot back, "Get a new line," before standing up to confront Brinkley. She was blocked by court officers.

The supermodel also reportedly told Shaw -- who married Cook back in February -- that she "pitied" her.

Cook and Brinkley were in court arguing over rude emails and small sums ofmoney each allegedly owes the other. 

RODNEY KING'S FIANCEE Not Invited to Funeral

0622_rodney_king_fianceeRodney King's fiancée Cynthia Kelley is not invited to his funeral services -- King family sources tell TMZ.

According to sources, the services will be held next Saturday in Hollywood -- but the family hasn't contacted Cynthia since the day after Rodney died ... and doesn't plan to.

We're told Cynthia hasn't made any efforts to make arrangements for Rodney -- so the family doesn't feel the need to reach out.

We're told the family is also still skeptical about Cynthia's story -- that she heard Rodney banging on the window around 5 AM Sunday and then heard him fall in the pool.

The family doesn't believe Rodney drowned on his own because -- as one source put it -- Rodney was always a great swimmer.

Some family members don't have any hard feelings toward Cynthia -- but we're told many don't want to speak to her until an official cause of death has been released.

Our law enforcement sources say Rodney's death is still being investigated as an accident, and there are no signs of foul play. Attempts to reach Cynthia were unsuccessful.

Tom Brady was in NYC yesterday to participate in a press conference with the brand Under Armour. Tom's one of their athlete spokespeople, and he linked up with UA's other faces, skier Lindsey Vonn and basketball player Kemba Walker, to launch the new line of Spine running shoes. Tom spent the day working while his wife Gisele Bundchen did the same. Gisele's in Brazil tackling modeling projects for the next few days.
After a presentation lead by UA CEO Kevin Plank, Tom and the gang took the stage for a quick Q&A session. Tom touched on how tough it is for him in NYC as the quarterback of the New England Patriots, and even joked about the critical reception to his Funny or Die video. Tom was even asked if Gisele is pregnant with their second child, and the athlete replied, "I like working on it."
Here are more highlights from Tom at the launch:
On spending the day in NYC: "I love New York. Jets Fans, Giants Fans . . . I'm really welcomed here. Subway rides — I really enjoy those. Trying to get a cab in this city can be tough for me. We usually come here to play. It's actually nice to be here on a beautiful, Summer day to unveil something special for this company."
On the importance of his shoes: "As an athlete, your movement, your ability to execute on the field is based around your performance. As a performance-based business is what we're in, when you have the right products on and you feel good about what you're wearing, you'll perform at your best."
On his Funny or Die video: "I probably had more compliments on that video than I did on my last football season."
