Starbucks Improving Their Pastry Offerings!

Filed under: Etc.Business BlitzFood

Starbucks Bakery

So, how does Starbucks improve their pasty offerings?

Hire a better baker for their locations? Or a baker at all??

Nope! They drop $100 million in cash to buy an entire small bakery chain.

It's true: baked goods and pastries from La Boulange will start replacing its current lineup early next year.

There are also plans to make the San Francisco-area bakery into a national presence in the years ahead — so look out for twice as many places to inundate your everyday lives!

Ha!

Interestingly enough, a third of the purchases in its U.S. locations now include a food item. So this is probably a good move on their part!

Does this mean they'll be going after Panera now??

Charlie Sheen Buys A House For Denise Richards, But Denise Won't Take It

denise-richards-charlie-sheen-bought-her-a-house-wont-take-it.jpg

Guess which newly released out of rehab momma is next in line for the digs?

Despite their differences and Charlie Sheen's crazy, Denise Richards has tried to be very respectful of Charlie in the media. She doesn't bash him, she doesn't attack him over the stunts that he pulls. Simply put, she's remained very classy when talking about her ex and the father of her girls, even though he's put them all through hell.

Still, kindess can only go so far and people have their limits. Which is why we weren't a bit surprised to hear that Denise decided not to accept the massive gift Charlie bought for her and their kids - a huge house six doors down from his own. That just sounds like an awful R-rated sitcom in the making.

Instead, Denise will

Nice! That Glee money must be doing him well!

The series creator, Ryan Murphy, has just paid one serious pretty penny for Charlize Theron's old house on La Coasta Beach in Malibu, which she put on the market in December for a whopping $7.5 million!

Check out a photo of the 2,100 square foot, two-story property, which reportedly has three bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a hot tub, and fire pit (above)!

Not bad! And he even got it at the discounted rate of $6.562 million!

So much more reasonable! LOLz!

Enjoy the new digs, Ryan! We expect an invitation to your housewarming party delivered by Miz Lea Michele personally!

Ha!

TPG Capital and Leonard Green & Partners are the proud new owners of J. Crew!

Back in November the retailer announced the two private equity firms were set to acquire the company for $3 billion on the condition they didn't receive any better offers during the go-shop period.

Since no one made them a better offer, the purchase is practically a done deal.

wenn2851916jb.jpg

Well, she's already proven she does biopics well, so why not?

Reese Witherspoon has reportedly bought the rights to the life story of singer Peggy Lee, and has enlisted director Nora Ephron to write and direct a biopic that she will produce and star in!

The film will reportedly span the entirety of Lee's life, including her singing and acting career.

Inneresting! We're pretty confident that if anyone can do her life justice on screen, it's Reese Witherspoon, so we're curious to see how this one pans out!

What do U think?? Do U think Reese will make a good Peggy Lee??
