Afternoon Delight: Ellen and Portia purchase Brad Pitt’s old digs, Jessie J on tonight’s “Vh1 Divas Celebrates Soul”

 
 

Good afternoon!

Happy birthday to Jennifer Beals (The L Word), Alyssa Milano (Charmed), Heidi Martinuzzi (Ghostella’s Haunted Tomb) and the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Kristy Swanson (3 Way).

Last night out San Francisco chef Elizabeth Falkner nabbed the runner-up spot in the battle for The Next Iron Chef. Falkner was beat out by chef Geoffrey Zakarian, a decision I adamantly disagree with. During the bagel challenge, Falkner made cream cheese ice cream for gosh sakes! (Dear Elizabeth, You will always be my Iron Chef. Love, Bridget.) For all you Falkner fans, check out her interview with The Huffington Post in which she talks about competing on the Food Network and what’s up her sleeve for 2012.

E! is warning audiences about David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. If you plan on seeing the U.S. version of the R-rated film then check out “the five things you need to know” beforehand.

Eva Green (Cracks) is in talks to star in the 300 prequel entitled 300: The Battle of Artemisia. If Green accepts the title role, she’ll be playing Artemisia the "ruthless gold-covered goddess who persuades Xerxes to amass his army and helps lead them into battle."

Still looking for a holiday gift for that special someone? Then head over to Battlestar Galactica star Katee Sackhoff’s webstore! Nothing says “Happy birthday Jesus” like a 4×6 signed Starbuck headshot.

Speaking of BSG, Portlandia stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein recently discovered the award-winning science fiction series and had the exact same experience I had when first watching it. Season 2 of Portlandia premieres January 6 at 10 p.m. on IFC.

Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi have purchased Brad Pitt’s four-bedroom Malibu home for a mere $12 million. Ladies, congrats on the new digs! Do you like the housewarming gift I sent you?

Tonight, Angelina Jolie will be featured on PBS’s Tavis Smiley and Rooney Mara will appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Also airing tonight is 2011 VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul at 9 p.m., starring Florence Welch, Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Queen Latifah, Jill Scott, Jennifer Hudson and today’s featured lesbian/bi photo subject, Jessie J!

Lesbian/Bi Photo of the Day!

This photo is just more proof that Jessie J is my kind of lady!

Hasta manana!
