Pistachio farmers were winners today according to the L.A Times.
Iranian pistachio farmers have now been banned from selling into the U.S due to Iran not opening up it’s nuclear weapons plants for U.S inspection.
The times says that the ban is good news for American pistachio farmers, who have long vied with Iran for dominance in the U.S.’s $700-million domestic market, as well as overseas.
Golden State farmers, are in the midst of harvest season. More than 98% of U.S. pistachios come from California, which produces about 375 million pounds annually; the bulk of that production comes from the San Joaquin Valley. While eating your pistachio’s then, read these.

Tori Spelling is looking healthy and good as she enjoys some bikini beach action in Turks and Caicos.
I wonder what the fun Maoris are up to in beautiful Hawaii today? :)

Life & Style Magazine make Kim Kardashian‘s latest bikini body pic, a “revenge bikini body” pic. How did they deduce this? Did they interview it?
It’s bit of a stretch of tabloid cover story taglining to be believed … when Kim has bikini body pics all year round every second week, whether she is joined at the bikini stringed hip to footballer Reggie Bush romanticly or not. Bikini body pics for America is just what Kim does as the highest profile Middle Eastern celebrity in America.
Whatever! But here’s the latest from Kim. And it’s insane that one of Kim’s ha bibi shaking hips weighs more than Tori Spelling‘s entire body weight, according to this magazine too.

Love is the ability to not take yourself too seriously and make fun of yourselves together. Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott still have puppy love together. That’s how they roll! Priceless!

Says Spelling: “This has given us the amazing opportunity to reach our fans who have become our friends in such an intimate and unique way. It’s an honor to bring our living room into theirs.”
Aw! She’s so sweet, that Tori Spelling. Digging her today. Girl can rough it, to reach her audience. We like that. She’s a working princess, Dean too. :)
You can’t go on the road together across the US, if you have a ‘loveless marriage’ as Tori and Dean defy the slurs by tabloids this year. She’s smart. Love this next adventure from Tori, Dean and family. Like her father, Aaron Spelling, Tori works so hard to entertain America.
Star Magazine published that Tori Spelling is 95lbs.
Tori tweeted her retort that it’s all lies she’s 107lbs.
Again, Star Magazine are found to be making up stories. They are the mag, that always says Brad Pitt is moving out of the castle in France, when Agelina Jolie and Brad Pitt hardly even live in it, they’re filming in the US.
Let’s face it, with trashy facts like that which aren’t true, Star Mag would be better off becoming a blog. :) If you misspell a word, or get a fact wrong, a fan of the star, with leave a comment on your blog, and then you correct it. The laws of print publication though, say that facts before they go to print, need to be triple checked.
It’s cool Tori Spelling is now her own publicist, who can tweet. Nice one Tori Spelling. She just saved Twitter’s social networking benefits for celebs, now that Miley Cyrus is toying with twitter by her ‘absence’ and hoping for a big book deal to publish all of her creative teen tweets.
Tori Spelling, the actress, #1 Best Selling author and mother and wife extraordinaire, was hospitalized for having stomach pains, Wednesday. The hospital is running tests on her condition.
Why does Tori Spelling have a pain in the guts? It’s been a hectic year for her. Something perhaps has got to give. Stress is never good for the health. We wish Tori and Dean, all the best in her recovery. [image: celebrific]
If we had to give the wooden spoon award today and paddle two tabloids lying behinds, we’d have to give InTouch Weekly Magazine and Star Magazine a wee spanking for two of the most untrue covers in the tabloid game this week.
First up, InTouch run with a story that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have separated. Then Star Magazine says that Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott’s marriage is a sham and based just on the money that the couple (mainly Tori) earn.
Spelling did what any decent celebrity did about the matter. She gave it 30 seconds of thought only 2 x and then tweeted her replies. Spelling tweeted:
“Dean & I read STAR 2gthr & were grossed out @ uncreative lies but made us appreciate R life & love more & made us sad 4 those tht spread lies.Bad Mo Jo!”
I love twitter. It put lies to rest asap. Brad and Angie don’t even bother tweeting, they’re too busy making baby no 7, in between all of their commitments in film, entertainment, human rights issues and being there for their children. It’s so important to celebrate love and happiness and not try and snatch it off others. Shame on InTouch and Star Magazine this week! Shockers!

Wahoo! Tori Spelling is in Hawaii too, like Horiwood is right now. Love it. We haven’t seen her yet though. But judging by the 2 pounds per day, that’s being laid upon our waistlines here in Hawaii with every thing you can eat, we are so glad she is here.
Girl needs to put a bit of meat on her bones. Hawaii is the place to do that! :) Splash

Zimbio releases their 100 Hot Celebrities list. And because magazines like Forbes, shouldn’t be the only ones to make lists… bloggers can and should do too. I’m going to support this innovation.

Britney Spears and Jason Trawicke should be added to the list. Get with it people! Barack & Michelle Obama… A-ha!

Randy Spelling, 30, is not entering the fray or the perceived feud between his mom Candy Spelling and his sister Tori Spelling.
Instead, he wants to emphasise his father, Aaron Spelling’s family legacy in Hollywood to be about building people up, not tearing anyone down.
Spellings says that his dad who helped discover, Hollywood legend, Farrah Fawcett Majors by casting her in his Charlie’s Angels show; that his dad’s death affected him so much that: Randy, 30, is now a Life Coach with his own company called Being in Flow.
“After my dad died, I took stock of my life,” he said.
“I’ve always been into people and spirituality, and a friend suggested I take a course in becoming a life coach.
“I had never even heard of a life coach but I enrolled in a school and it became a real passion.
“I am committed to empowering people.” (more…)
Silverlake is so not living in Hollywood.
It has its own down low culture and artsy community.
Nice to see Chris getting some downtime in before hitting up red carpets all over the world.
Yesterday Mrs Spelling said these things about daughter Tori on Massachusetts radio station 94.7 WMAS-FM:
“My daughter one day decided that she wasn’t speaking to my husband, myself and my son, and that’s how it’s continued for the last, oh gosh, four or five years. And it was sad, that’s what killed my husband, actually.”
Ouch! But Candy goes on…. (more…)
