Zooey Deschanel Vs. The LA Times

zooey deschanel vs la times

You tell 'em, Zooey!

In yesterday's LA Times opinion column, journalist Patt Morrison spoke out against Zooey Deschanel for saying the following about Downtown L.A. at the BAFTA gala, which was attended by the royal couple:

"I just don't want them to see the worst of L.A."

Here's what Morrison wrote in response:

"I can't believe Zooey Deschanel is really the snobby cow she came off sounding like Saturday evening."

"I cannot apologize enough to Ms. Deschanel that in some places, the sidewalks do not smell like Jo Malone candles."

When Zooey read Morrison's column, she took to her website to fight the comments. She claims that the quote Morrison took issue with was "taken completely out of context," and that it was meant to be funny.

More from Zooey:

"You also open your piece by calling me a 'cow', which might be your opinion, but I wish a journalist for the Los Angeles Times and KPCC had found a more sophisticated way of sharing a difference in perceived opinion."

Yeah, we're def on Team Deschanel here! It's clear that her comment was innocent enough, and calling her a "snobby cow" was very immature and inappropriate.

Who do U side with here? Zooey or LA Times' Patt Morrison?

Did Burlesque BRIBE Its Way To A Golden Globe Best Picture Nomination??

Filed under: Film FlickersConspiracy CornerAwardzCher

According to some, YES!

If you were surprised as us over Burlesque getting ANY recognition from the Golden Globes, not to mention a nod in the 'Best Picture' category, then you won't be surprised to hear that many are thinking that the HFPA members had a little, ahem, incentive to give the flick some accolades!

Patrick Goldstein, of the L.A. Times, explains:

"If you talk to the top award-season consultants, they can barely disguise their lack of respect for the HFPA members, who often put themselves in indelicate situations, as with this year's crew, which took a Sony-sponsored trip to Las Vegas to see Cher in concert, then gave her film a stunning best picture nod."

Wowza! Shady shady!

As much as we LOVE our Cher, we have to admit that this movie, as fun as it was, definitely seems a little out of place in the list of nominations!

But who knows?!

What do U think?? Should Burlesque be re-titled Bribe-lesque?

Jillian Michaels Criticizes LA Times For Calling Her a Fraud

Jillian Michaels Criticizes LA Times For Calling Her a Fraud

If you think you’ve seen Jillian Michaels get angry on Biggest Loser, think again.

The LA Times recently wrote an op-ed piece calling Jillian “an actress playing the role of fitness trainer.” Writer and certifiied health expert James S. Fell also said that Michaels’ routines are shoddy and her routines unsafe.

Michaels is not happy about these allegations.

"Apparently I'm an actress. Shame on the Los Angeles Times for saying I'm a fraud and not a trainer. I currently own two certifications, one of which doesn't expire. I developed my own continuing education program for trainers, with sports medicine doctors. I've been a trainer since I was 17-years old for 19 years."

She also said she’s not ruling out legal action, which she isn’t totally unfamiliar with, as she has been sued for products that she endorses that the plaintiffs claim are dangerous/ineffective.

We hope the allegations aren’t true! Jillian can be harsh on Biggest Loser, but she’s definitely helped the contestants on the show.

What do U think about Jillian Michaels?

Wow!

What an upgrade! And this late in the series?!

L.A. Times' Joy Press took to her Twitter to make a pretty serious announcement regarding the next season of America's Next Top Model!

She wrote:

The next America's Next Top Model winner will get cover of Italian Vogue, not 17. Which means they actually have to find…a top model.

Ha!

Very true! Have any of the winners thus far really had that much success??

We wonder how Miz Tyra snagged that spot?!

Thoughts??

P.S. CLICK HERE to "follow" Perez on Twitter!

L.A. Times Real Estate Section Outs Jeremy Renner??

wenn2749063jb__optjb.jpg

CRAZY!

After we reported on speculation that Hurt Locker actor Jeremy Renner was gay this morning, a source came forward and reminded us of a very CURIOUS article in the real estate section of the El Lay Times way back in January about the Oscar nominee's house being sold!

The story says:

Actors Jeremy Renner, who played the leader of an explosives disposal unit in the critically acclaimed film "The Hurt Locker," and co-investor Kristoffer Winters found a buyer for their restored 1924 Greek Revival in the Hollywood Hills area after five months on the market.

CO-INVESTOR?? REALLY??

Two working Hollywood actors in their 30s buy a house together as 'co-investors'??

YEAH. That's what we thought, too.

Well, sources are guaranteeing for us that Renner and Winters are DEFINITELY an item!!

Wow!!

We guess we should give the National Enquirer more credit!!
