“Whatever or whoever I criticize, I am blindly and most probably talking about myself.”–my scary thought for life as a Hollywood blogger.

I guess, that’s why to be kind is so vital. God help us then in Hollywood.

There’s no stopping Christina Hendricks today from chalking up the most votes by a country mile. Two views of Rotterdam and Sydney Australia via Getty Images this Christmas day remind us how wonderful this time of year is in the world. The promise? “For unto us a child is born, and unto us a son is given and the government shall be upon his shoulders. His name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, The Prince of Peace, The Everlasting Father.” At this time in my family’s history – these ancient words are for someone very tiny and special in our family. At the moment the little one is swimming. Cute.

Star sighting: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were spotted shopping in a Namibian mall while on Christmas vacations there with their whanau (family). Four years ago the fun-loving mischief one of their brood, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt (it’s genetic as Alecia Moore would sing in a rock concert with her black music director at the helm wowing the USA on tour, who did not have a white cap put on him) was born in this nation of beautiful people. Nice to see Namibia get a shout out from Hollywood’s reigning star couple this year.

Guess what? Dudes who poke their tongues out on the football field and do the Maori haka are creative enough to be called “game breakers” by leading sports commentators of the sporting code. Not bad! These lads pictured via Getty Images are creative and tough to evolve and break the game open at new sporting levels of play.

Writes the All Blacks Website’s Sports News Section: “Even considering personal preferences and allegiance, the makeup of the best team of the season past will have a heavy tinge of Black, reflecting a test calendar where Richie McCaw and his men won 13 of 14 tests. Rugby sites and various pundits from around the world have compiled their best team of the year.

Rugby sites and various pundits from around the world have compiled their best team of the year. Planet Rugby selected no less than eleven All Blacks in their starting XV, whilst rugby365 put seven New Zealanders in their selection. Rugbyheaven of Sydney Morning Herald in Australia selected ten All Blacks, while even Green and Gold Rugby, a notoriously pro-Australian rugby site, put eight kiwis in their run out team.

What is notable is that it is considered necessary to have multiple world class players in a team to have any hope of winning a World Cup. Not one or two players, but a host of game breakers who can change a test with a certain play.”

Looks like the World Cup is shaping up to be quite the hot sports event of the world. Believe me, rugby football is so much fun. Hollywood media conglomerate, Universal/ Comcast are gearing to broadcast and broker the Rugby World Cup sporting football coverage into the US next year. Should be hot to watch either on the telly but particular in person, at the event. Rugby culture and its supporters are crazy, wild, fun. You really have to sit in a live rugby match to feel the made love. It’s the best sporting buzz in the world. That and Super Bowl and Wimbledon finals as well as Soccer World Cup. Top sports entertainment live.

A note to all rugby football players worldwide. Americans love big toothy smiles. Everyone here puts white caps on theirs, especially Hollywood stars and sports stars to produce that winning smile for a camera’s close up. Now would be a really good time for leading cosmetic dentists in every rugby football nation to step forward as corporate sponsors perhaps. Just a suggestion mind.”

Universal Sports Coverage Currently includes: Alpine SkiingBeach VolleyballBobsledCurlingCyclingDivingHorsey stuff (Equestrian); Ice Queens (Figure SkatingSport with Rings (Gymnastics); That one Canadians are real good at (Hockey); LugeMarathonNordic CombinedOlympicsParalympicsRowingRugbySkeletonSki JumpingSnowboardingSpeed SkatingSwimmingTrack & Field.  Universal is also well known worldwide for movie making, as in Universal Pictures and bringing good funny TV shows to the world as in James Cameron presents Sanctum & The Little Fockers for example. Oh wait… those were their films. Wicked: The Musical. Oh shoot… that’s their big Broadway Musical foray show. Their TV Shows are: Keeping Up with the KardashianKourtney & Khloé KardashiansFashion Police and The Big Picture to name a few of Universal’s most popular TV shows.

You can also visit with your family at Universal Citywalk Theme Park (pictured above) before or after visiting Rugby World Cup live too. It’s all up to you. Fun!

It’s all about children and their world we help and support them create. As you can see, I’m on Jakey’s program as he’s already busting out his Peace sign moves for photos, so fine like already, on a Kiwi beach. Too cute.

It’s always sad to see any couple split. Ryan Reynolds has filed for divorce. Reynolds lists the date of separation as being December 14th 2010 and Johansson agrees with the date.

No prenup exists and with Ryan being the big earner over two years they were married she will be more than taken care of, post their divorce. No third parties have been divulged at this stage of the divorce and separation.

Richard Graham the solid rugby football coach of The Western Force, Australia has backed Cameron Shepherd to return to his blistering best. Graham claims ‘the utility back has finally overcome a litany of injuries that threatened to derail his Super Rugby career.

Shepherd who was born in England but grew up in Sydney hasn’t missed a beat during the Force’s gruelling pre-season campaign, returning strongly from a hamstring complaint that kept him out of the recent Qantas Wallabies tour of Europe.

Graham believed Shepherd, who has suffered numerous setbacks since breaking his left fibula in eight places in 2007, would return to top form next season.

“He’s probably in the best condition he’s been in for a number of years,” Graham said at training on Wednesday.’

Fingers crossed then for Cameron Shepherd’s Rugby World Cup sports gladiatorial hopes for Australia next year. Hopefully Shepherd can stay in the clear from injury to compete at the world’s top sporting level.

Comcast/ Universal the Media conglomerate that broadcasts Keeping Up With The Kardashians and The Chelsea Handler Show here in the USA, will be broadcasting The Wallabies live across America in 2011 as new sporting entertainment via Hollywood, when the action goes down in New Zealand at The Rugby World Cup. To get your tickets this Christmas for you and to organize the mates, zip on over here to secure.

Say it isn’t true? An international footballer is thinking of turning down lucrative sporting contract monies to play rugby football for his own home nation? This appears to be the case with Butch James.

RUGBY NEWS: ‘Bath first five eighth Butch James has confirmed he will leave Bath and the Aviva Premiership to return home to South Africa and push his claims for a World Cup berth.

James has been with Bath for the last four seasons, and earlier this year he and the club had denied that he would return home.

However the 31-year-old will likely leave with two years left on his contract, and while Bath would prefer him to stay at the club, they have stated they will not stand in the way of their star number ten.

It is unknown which South African side will snap him up.’ If he is snapped by the Springboks rugby team, here in America Universal/ Comcast will telecast Butch James in The Rugby World Cup live across America for our entertainment. Stay tuned for that. Even better jump on a plane and experience The Cup sporting event go down live. Too much fun.

Ozzy Osbourne brings a smile when talking about Lady Gaga‘s latest lamp shade discovery hyped as a millinery ‘masterpiece.’ Read what Ozzy said to US weekly below. I must admit that I do get sick of Gaga too at times. Now that she’s made her first $67 million, my love for her as ‘a struggling artist fighting for authenticity and trying to be heard’ went out the window by 80% as there are new stars to develop now as Stefani Germanotta has already passed through fames fiery hoops.

Perhaps this is what Ozzy means? To give other artists a chance now perhaps to be seen, heard, find their audience and make bank too.

The fact remains though, 25% of Horiwood.Com’s daily total audience are Gaga fans and always have been solidly for a year now. She was the big blog booster of 2009-2010. Any blogger who covered this girl, owes her a debt of thanks in a way. Me included. Her antics grew bloggers significantly. There’s no denying Gaga is a phenomenal force of pop culture to be reckoned with. She’s one talented little girl. I chose to take a break from her for a while. I wanted Horiwood.Com audiences to be more varied than Gaga fans alone. I like some of her music. Her ballads would be some favorites.

Ten posts being shared via Social Media from Horiwood.Com right now here in Hollywood are:

1. Horiwood’s Nicole Kidman news as shared via Huffington Post

2. A Helensville rugby umbrella

3. Folk girls duo, Gaia harmonies should be heard performed live

4. Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie filmmaking together

5. Vintage Hollywood: Joan Fontaine & Olivia D

6. LeAnn Rimes gets festive

7. Bloomberg’s NZ economic news forecast 2011

8. Shooting Star – Levi Johnston – 1 year ago this week

9. A cappella – Duwende & Rock with You

10. Action by Alex Meraz

Ozzy Osbourne on Lady Gaga: “I do think Lady Gaga should take a break for a little while. She’s getting to be too much, and she doesn’t watch the exposure of her clothes. She’s just too overexposed. She could be the next Madonna if she played her cards right. I like her, but I’m getting a bit sick of her. When I turn on the TV, I see her wearing another lamp shade or whatever. She needs to take a break, I think, for an hour or so. I love her, I think she’s really, really entertaining, but she’s doing a bit too much. Every day it is something else. The specialness of her is gonna get killed if she doesn’t calm it down. Who manages her?  Someone should whisper in her ear and say back off for a couple of months — let people gain interest back. Let people want you, you know?”

What a hoot.

“Mould me in your hands, into a vessel you can use”–song lyrics, the incomparable Helen Baylor

At this minute in Hollywood, a certain malpracticing ‘doctor’ has been accusing a certain A-Listed actress of being a non-reformed and current heroin addict, for his own try hard publicity. This woman has children. And he’s doing this at Christmas time. What a raping grinch!

This is what a real reformed heroin addict does look like. Drug addiction is a disease like any other that is nothing to be proud of or ashamed of either. It’s just something that some good people are or have been afflicted by. Many people in Hollywood, New York and Australia are afflicted by heroine addiction.

This real reformed heroine addict (above) is so beautiful on the inside. Her name is Helen Baylor and for our West Hollywood Christmas Special, Helen sings All of Me live, because in her life, she credits overcoming heroin dependancy on her faith in God. In this song she offers up her life as a broken gift, full of the good, the bad and the plain ugly facts of her life. So powerful! Ms. Baylor makes me bawl my face off when she sings. If you hear her life story, you’ll bawl your face off too. Yet Helen ‘aint ever graced a cover of a tabloid or a visible-to-all magazine. Why is that I wonder? She’s a total winner.

I love her. Stars don’t get more real than Helen Baylor this Christmas. Her story belongs in a future Hollywood film. Helen Baylor’s life is the freaking Christmas story. No one can deny Helen her Christmas story. If you tried, she’d sing you out of the ball park. Go lady! Sing the Christmas blues. Merry Christmas people, especially ya’ll in West Hollywood. This year we are celebrating grinch-freeness in our lives at Christmas.

We are celebrating living lives beyond lies and falsity too. 2011′s hot American goal. It’s actually a miracle many of us are even having a Christmas this year and that we are choosing to. Truly, it is. We overcame a lot this year in two years of the most hideous economy ever, where we still watched the greedy get greedier and act like spoiled children, more uglier to me than heroine addicts are, wanting more so blatantly. That stuff was sick! Average people perhaps like ourselves all got a bit thinner and came out on top this year, still smiling. Wow! How cool are all you people? You’re the best!  Let’s keep at it then. Grinch-kicking has become my new sport. Join me in it, in making the world a sweeter place in 2011. Meanness, stingyness (the flipside of greed), let’s kick it to the curb when we see it, to win. Up!

Click on Helen’s picture above to see a winner shine drug free. Her gratitude is medicine. Can’t get enough of her spirit to celebrate living life to the fullest with healthy respect for the gift of life. Wow!

No. These two are not discussing the latest funnies on the ICanHasCheeseburger Blog! This is an official ambassador visit photo. Prince Harry shares a smile with German actress Sophia Thomalla at the charity gala ‘Ein Herz fuer Kinder’ in Berlin, Germany. Amongst chatting up hot blondes, Harry was on his first official visit to Germany where The Bernauer Strasse Wall Memorial was a place where the Prince laid a wreath on a restored section of Berlin’s former East-West border, including the Wall and the area behind it known as the ‘death strip’ where many died trying to escape back in the day before U2 sung and the wall came tumbling down. In hot Kiwi news, rugby football stars, Andrew Ellis says he’s heading to Aussie for Christmas holidays; Kieran Reed is looking forward to becoming a new dad real soon, and Stephen Donald says “Mate. The Coromandel is the only place to be this Christmas.” 

Today we hit 2.8 million on ze blog. Japan and Iran both got hit by massive earthquakes. Let’s be mindful of Iran and Japan today. Sudan could have 2.8 million people displaced real soon.

Who: Katy Perry-Brand

What: Grazia Magazine photo shoot for Christmas.

On breeding: “Absolutely. I don’t want to miss out on any experience. I want lots of children. It’s all very possible,’ she added.

Katy is sounding very Angelina Jolie after two months of being married.

On Katy and Russell Brand’s first Christmas dinner together: “There will be me and Russ and a pink Christmas tree and a tofu-urky.”

On past, present & new family traditions: “We’ll open one present the night before because that’s the tradition in my family. And we’ll do something new. We’ll start our own new tradition because we are a family now.”

On Russell Brand: “What can I say? He’s brilliant. Every day he amazes me.”

Katy Perry is such a good girl. She’s even wearing an angel-themed shoulder pad for Beyonce and Janet Jackson in this photo too while looking like a Christmas bon bon. Could she be doing any more to entertain in an American way this festive season? No!

She’s got it all covered, right down to the vegan-friendly “tofu-urky.” What next?!

Husband. What husband, says the UK when selecting their most favorite wedding pic of Nicole Richie‘s big wedding day with Benji Madden. UK media prefer a picture of American interracial and intergenerational family-star power with Nicole and her dad Lionel Richie for this magazine cover and an image of modern family.

A very sweet picture of Michael Jackson‘s god-daughter and her dad. What a beautiful bride, Richie was. Weddings, marriage romance, commitment in love from two people to each other rising above (through and past) current economic times and anything that politicians may (or may not) say– is the new trend of the 2010′s. Long live true love.

Ellis Watson was the CEO of Syco Productions (Simon Cowell‘s production company). He signed up in March. Already he’s quitting that b*tch job–as we’d say in L.A.

I wonder what happened? Poor Ellis. Let’s hope Cowell can find someone just as good or better to keep his entertainment brands and productions going.

Meanwhile, Cowell is being touted in the future list of Poms to be knighted in the UK for 2011.

“Come on, let your colors burn. Even brighter than the moon”–Katy Perry, songwriter.

There is no stopping Katy Perry-Brand. First up she had the whole wedding in a Tiger sanctuary in Rajastan, India to Brit comedic lad Russell, after the two had met backstage at an entertainment awards show.

Perry went on to become Google’s (worldwide) in the Western World (according to Bill Gates company) most searched for woman in the entire world, this year. Wow! That’s quite some celebrity heat for this California Gurl.

This week Katy is on top for the second week in a row leading the US singles charts. Reuters (not E! Entertainment, or, People Magazine, or UK Daily Telegraph but REUTERS worldwide!!!) is reporting: “NEW YORK (Billboard) – The spinning wheel atop the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart came to a halt for the first time in almost two months on Thursday, as Katy Perry’s Firework logged a second consecutive week at No. 1.”

Rihanna is not too far behind her main buddy in pop music. “What’s My Name? by Rihanna featuring Drake, was also angling for a second shot at glory by rising one place to No. 2 on the heels of strong radio airplay. The R&B starlet held at No. 6 with Only Girl (In the World).

These two girls have the golden touch when it comes to no.1 hits on the US charts. Congrats. What they both have in common is that they choose to live in California when not on tour; they both have strong links to the U.K and Commonwealth nations and they LOVE AMERICA. A winning mix, combined with beauty, talent and ambassadorialship traits like few others. Hot!
