Top 5 Picks from Around the Web

Kate Winslet1. Kate Winslet’s svelte and sexy figure is thanks to … 20 minutes of Pilates a day?! Well, sign us up! “I still don’t believe in this craziness for being skinny, but I eat sensibly and I don’t stuff down chocolate biscuits.” Ok. Got it. Pilates DVDs and no stuffing chocolate biscuits. We can handle that! (Daily Mail)

2. Talk about making a mockery of marriage! Not only will MTV be promoting the marriage of barely legal couples in their New Year’s Day special “Engaged & Underage: The Bridal Bowl,” it will be hosted by none other than fake-out marriage veterans Speidi! That’s right, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag (who after all the hype turn out NOT to be married) will host the four-hour special in which a different couple walks down the aisle and legitimately exchanges vows each hour … or as legitimately as we can believe from MTV these days … (Us Magazine)

3. What’s a former singing star to do to boost sales of a new song decades after his band’s height of popularity? Dave Stewart of Eurythmics decided to promote a little extra something with his new song, appropriately titled “Let’s do it again.” The extra something comes in the form of a $2,000 vibrator he designed with retailer JimmyJane, which is encircled by 28 black diamonds and a free download of the song. A “plain” diamond-less version is available for $195. In this economy, they better provide some pretty sweet dreams … and much more. You can check out the song’s video here. (The Sun)

4. Cate Blanchett shuns plastic surgery to stave off divorce. Says the gorgeous, 39-year-old actress, “I haven’t done anything, but who knows. Andrew said he’d divorce me if I did anything.” The mother of three went on to say, “I’m not a spokesperson against the world of injectables. If you grow up in an environment where your mother gets you a boob job when you turn 18, what hope is there? But I didn’t grow up in that world.” (PerezHilton)

5. Will Angie reconcile with her father, John Voigt, in 2009? The two have been estranged since 2002, and he’s never even met his pack of grandchildren! Sources now say that Voigt is desperate to reconcile. A source told Britain’s Daily Express newspaper:

“There’s nothing Jon wants more than to have his family back together again. It kills him to be shunned by his children. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to put this rift behind him. As Jon grows older he’s realizing the importance of family, and longs to be a part of his daughter and grandchildren’s lives. It breaks his heart to be kept away.”

Sweet, but why did it take him growing older to realize the importance of family?? (
