Blake Lively starred in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants films. She seems to have lost hers at some point during the sequel, according to the pics below!

The Gossip Girl star recently opened up to Marie Claire magazine about how fashion, acting, growing up in L.A. and ... did we mention there are hot photos?

Below are some excerpts and pictures from interview with Marie Claire ...

On Gossip Girl fashion: "Living in New York, I feel stronger and more like a woman than ever before. In high school, it was like, what power do I have - I have long blonde hair, you know? But working as hard as I do, I feel a sense of power and respect, too.

I’ve learned an incredible amount about fashion on Gossip Girl. For me, clothes are a personal expression, and my style is as ever-changing as I am: I’m at a point when I am growing, maturing, developing, going through new things."

On her Southern values: "I grew up in L.A., but I was the only one in my family born there. I have a tight-knit Southern family, so whenever I tell people I’m from L.A., they say, 'Yeah but you don’t count.' I guess it's because of the Southern values I was raised with, and the way I eat - the more sugary and cheesy and fried, the better.

On acting: "As a character, I get to be this wild, outgoing person that I’m so not. It comes from being the youngest of five. I was always observing my siblings and hearing stories about their lives that turned out to to be helpful as an actress."

On her early school daze: "When I was 3, my mom enrolled me in first grade. My older brother was supposed to start school, but he didn’t want to go alone, so my mom told them I was 6 since I was so tall. But after a few weeks, they said they had to put me in mentally disabled classes because I wasn’t up to pace with the rest of the kids They thought that I was slow because all I wanted to do was sleep while the other kids were doing their projects. [laughs].”

Just call her Marla Sokoloff the market! Eh, eh?

Sorry. The Practice star married Alec Puro, a drummer with the band Deadsy, at an evening ceremony in Beverly Hills on Sunday. Congratulations!

In front of a 100 guests, the 28-year-old bride and groom walked down the aisle in a strapless white gown with a black sash around her waist.

"Marla looked beyond stunning. She took a few deep breaths and briefly teared up before she entered. She seemed a bit nervous, but happy," reports an onlooker.

Marla Sokoloff is a married woman!

The reception featured guests mingling while enjoying champagne, fruit and puff pastries. Tables were adorned with candles and roses, and classical music played.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds spent a few moments alone in a cozy backroom with a fireplace. The reception included an Italian sit-down dinner and dancing.

The couple, who met at a party, were engaged in October, 2008.

Kurt Russell simply could not be happier about his smitten stepdaughter Kate Hudson's undying, passionate love for a rod. A rod named Alex Rodriguez.

“Of course, with Alex, since this summer and our getting to know him, I’m so happy for him,” Kurt said after the Yankees won the World Series last week.

Sounds like he's definitely put the stamp of approval on the relationship of Kate Hudson and Alex Rodriguez, which has been going on since the summer.

“He’s a terrific kid. He’s worked hard for a long, long time and now, all questions have been put to rest for everything and hopefully he will live a wonderful life and show us things in baseball that perhaps we’ve never seen,” Kurt adds.

Kurt and Kate's mom, his longtime partner Goldie Hawn, definitely think of Alex Rodriguez as family by now, and are standing behind him 100 percent.

Alex Rodriguez need not worry about Kurt Russell's approval!

“I think support is always a good thing from family, but Alex does what he does because he's good at it and because he’s worked hard at it,” explains Kurt.

“I think that it's a good thing that he has a connection with some people that appreciate it with him, but this is about the Yankees,” he said of the big win.

A quick A-Rod pro-con list reveals the following positives:

  • Can hit a baseball very well
  • Makes $30 million a year
  • Is good-looking

But these negatives:

  • Is divorced with two kids
  • Often thinks with a rod
  • Likes manly strippers
  • Is total d-bag
  • PED user

Good to see the pros won out!

Joe Jackson recently said son Michael is worth more dead than alive.

He's apparently taken that statement to heart - and to court.

Michael J. Walks

Despite the fact that his famously wealthy son probably did not leave him any money for a very good reason, Joe claims there was "no justification" for him to be excluded from getting some money from Michael Jackson's estate.

He's asking a judge to grant him a monthly allowance.

The 80-year-old Joe filed papers in L.A. County Superior Court late last week, claiming the patriarch is "entitled to his own independent family allowance."

Leonard Rowe, who claims to have been MJ's manager at one point, says Michael used to give his mother Katherine up to $60,000 a month to live on, and Michael instructed her to give half of it to Joe, who she is still technically married to.

If that's true, it doesn't explain why he deliberately left Katherine 40 percent of his estate, and guardianship of his children, while not mentioning Joe.

Joe claims Michael's estate "earned more than $100 million dollars in the first seven weeks following Michael Jackson's death" and can afford it.

Well, obviously it can afford it. But would Michael want to pay the man who abused him physically and mentally and was often estranged from?

Joe says he has $15,425 in total monthly expenses he wants covered. Michael's will executors, John McClain and John Branca, say the elder Jackson's request "will be considered as are all requests for money from Michael Jackson's Estate."

Maybe Joe just feels he's earned it by making death threats against other people seeking to get money from his obsecenly rich, deceased son.

The latest stop on Jon Gosselin's quest for positive PR inner peace: A hilariously staged photo shoot at a yoga studio at a Los Angeles hotel November 5.

The 32-year-old father of eight wants us to think he is putting his days of boozing, partying and skirt-chasing behind him in favor of other activities.

Yoga may help him "find balance in his life," says his instructor, Michelle Demus. "With all that has been going on in Jon's life, things are out of whack."

Instead of knocking back drinks and tapping Hailey Glassman, the embattled Jon "has got to let go of external distractions and tap into his spirituality."

Jon Gosselin is seeking physical and spiritual enlightenment. Yeah, right.

Maybe the kids will also get involved. Yoga "is a great way for kids to learn how to cope with pressure" they are likely facing during their parents' divorce battle.

Jon has a lot of work to do, though. According to experts, his body seems "closed off" and "holds a lot of tension." He and Hailey must really have broken up.

Follow the jump for a video montage of yoga-loving Jon ...

You don't see Lauren Conrad nearly as often as you used to these days, and that's by design. After six-plus years of being filmed on Laguna Beach and The Hills, the SoCal cutie has been happy to fly under the radar a bit.

While we respect such a career move immensely, we do miss her on TV. The show just isn't the same with Kristin Cavallari as the central character. Come back, LC!

Here's Lauren Conrad at the launch of Hyde Lounge in L.A. on Friday:

The always-stylish and beautiful LC makes an appearance.

There are a lot of complete wackos out in the U.S. prison system, but very few of them (probably for the best) hand-write court papers and file lawsuits.

Jonathan Lee Riches (a.k.a. Bernard Madoff) is one of the chosen few.

Kim Raver, Leo Kipling Boyer

In a recent court declaration, the Indiana inmate sued for custody of the eight kids of Jon and Kate Gosselin and the offspring of Octomom Nadya Suleman.

Oh, and in a political bombshell, Frances Quinn Hunter, the love child of Rielle Hunter believed to have been fathered by John Edwards, is apparently his too!

Riches also wants custody, for some reason, of the kids on ABC's soap opera All My Children, and is demanding a paternity test on Bristol Palin's son Tripp.

Guess he's not entirely sure he's the father and not Levi Johnston.

Jon Gosselin is totally off the hook for child support now!

More little-known facts revealed in Jonathan Lee Riches' lawsuit:

  • He met Kate Gosselin at a Harrisburg, Pa., Long John Silvers, where they dined on octopus before he accompanied her to a fertility clinic in 2002, at which point his "sperm was added to the mix." At least he got his dates right.
  • TLC really stands for Torturing Little Children (he may have a point there).
  • Jon Gosselin is really a woman on steroids (a stretch, but we'll buy it).
  • He has nude pics of Jon and Deanna Hummel at a Holiday Inn Express.
  • He is seeking "federal custody" of his 16 kids (whatever that means).
  • He has already sued Brad Pitt (he cites "Riches vs. Pitt"), Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Aniston, Hannah Montana and Black History Month (!?), all of whom/which may or may not be in possession of his sperm.

Chris Brown has heard what Rihanna has to say about the beating he savagely administered in February – and he wishes she had just kept quiet about it.

Brown supports her right to tell her side of the story, but at the same time is not pleased with Rihanna's interview on Good Morning America and 20/20.

Chris said in a statement to MTV:

"I am extremely sorry for what I did, and accept accountability for my actions. At this point, I am taking the proper steps to grow from my mistakes."

"I only hope that others in similar situations can learn from our experience as well. Abuse of any kind is always wrong. The rest I leave it up to God."

"I maintain my position that all the details should remain a private matter between us," he added. "I do appreciate her support and wish her the best."

Chris Brown Shirtless (Almost)

While not denying or hiding from the assault that left his girlfriend battered and bruised, Chris Brown nevertheless wishes the details would remain private.

In a 20/20 interview Friday, Rihanna offered a graphic account of the February 7 fight with her then-boyfriend Brown, describing what she calls the terrifying blankness, a soulless void that seemed to come over him as he assaulted her.

"He was clearly blacked-out," she says. "There was no person when I looked at him."

Brown, who like Rihanna is releasing a new album in the near future (Graffiti drops December 8) declined to respond to his ex's specific comments.

Looks like there will be plenty of material for his new reality show.

If it wasn't already clear that David Hasselhoff had fallen off the wagon, his speech at the European Music Awards in Germany November 5 ought to prove it.

Sure, he's not seen taking shots on camera, but from the slurring of his speech and some of the nonsense he spewed, you have to think the guy is tanked.

According to reports, Hoff was drunk in a Canadian casino last weekend and had to be escorted away after getting into an argument with an elderly patron.

He was also hammered and hospitalized at home in September. Guy could use help. Check out the funny/sad video of David Hasselhoff drunk this week ...
