Hollywood’s celebrity restaurants

Some restaurants can boast of celebrity chefs, but some of Hollywood’s eateries have something else — celebrity owners.

Quite a few of the bars and diners are owned by stars, and have become favorite celebrity hangouts. There’s the funky vibe of Dan Aykroyd’s House of Blues (found along the Sunset Strip). Or the classy Schazi, run by Schwarzenegger (no, the waiters don’t say, “Ah’ll be back!” after they take your order).

Steven Spielberg’s Dive! restaurant shows his quirky personality, being shaped like a yellow submarine. Peter Fonda chose to make his Thunder Roadhouse look like a biker joint (love those Harleys).

You can also try J. Lo’s restaurant, Madre’s, or Kevin Costner’s uber-exclusive Clubhouse. The 70’s Show cast also opened their own diner, thankfully free of any tacky upholstery — it serves traditional Italian, so there’s no lava lamp in sight.

Paris Hilton Not Sweating Latest Drug Arrest

Glam Paris

Despite the serious penalties it could carry, Paris Hilton's cocaine arrest - her third drug bust in under two months - doesn't worry the ho-tel heiress one bit.

She was popped early Saturday for cocaine possession when cops saw her drop a bag of drugs from her purse, but she's "not worried about it," TMZ reports.

Paris just doesn't think the bust was a big deal, and why should she? She's, like, so famous. The bombshell wowed us soon after with a stunning mug shot.

It turns the pretty booking photo was no fluke. The celebrity sex tape trend-setter spent the previous afternoon getting glam at a luxe Las Vegas salon.

Hilton had her hair freshly highlighted for the night on the town, and posed for photos with stylist Boychuck.

Who knew it would pay off around 2 a.m.!

Her arrest, like all DUI-related events, could have been avoided - more easily than ever in Paris' case. She was offered a ride earlier and declined it.

“Fantastic Four” approaching Bruce Willis, three potential directors

First came “Fantastic Four” casting rumors, with Adrien Brody reportedly up for the elastic part of Mr. Fantastic, while Alive Eve is battling Amber Heard for the part of Sue Storm, the team’s Invisible Woman.

Now we’re getting word that 20th Century Fox has a shortlist of directors it would like to tap for the “Fantastic Four” reboot, and the name are pretty impressive.

Joe Carnahan (“The A-Team”), David Yates (the “Harry Potter” franchise), and James McTeigue (“V for Vendetta”) reportedly are being considered to direct “Fantastic Four Reborn,” according to Collider. The movie would shoot next spring for a 2012 release.

The site also reports that “Four” would be filmed in 3-D (not converted in post), and that the studio wants Bruce Willis to provide the voice of an all-CGI Thing. Willis has done voice work before, lending his pipes to the animated “Over the Hedge.”

From the director’s perspective, all three of those filmmakers are interesting choices who could put their stamps on “Four.” Carnahan’s likely would be more action packed, while Yates could capture that blend of adventure and fantasy that are crucial to the comic books.

Real Housewives Of NYC Want $nooki-Sized Paycheck!

Despite what the rest of the world thinks, the old hags women of Real Housewives of New York City are delusional and believe they should be getting the same $30,000 per episode paycheck that Snooki gets on Jersey Shore.

Even though the entire cast has been asked to return for a fourth season, the ladies ain't having it until their $4,000 an episode gets a major upgrade.

According to a source, "they have little choice but to pimp themselves out with side gigs to bump up their earnings. It's a full-time job without the full-time pay."

When Jill Zarin was spotted whoring herself out filming for Animal Planet's It's Me or the Dog this past week, she responded to an onlooker asking if she was returning to Season 4 - "I'm not back!"

As for the other ladies, no word yet on whether or not they plan on returning. Except, of course, for nutjob Kelly Bensimon who said, "Let's be honest, being on a show that Bravo produces provides a lot of other opportunities. They gave me a huge career at 42."

That's because she knows no one else is willing to hire her crazy ass!

The bottom line is this: Their ratings may be okay, but if they're not the ratings powerhouse like Jersey Shore, then these wrinkled ol' nags don't deserve to get the same pay!
