25.05.14 Opium, Dublin's New Opiate...
We've been slow on the updates here on ShowBiz.ie of late and we're getting guff from all quarters. Explanation? Well, in our 15 years we've never known Dublin to be a town so devoid of an exclusive social scene and the celebrity conveyor belt seems to have slowed to a stop. Sure, we haven't had a new one in nigh on three years. Saying that, the new(ish) Thai bar & restaurant on Wexford Street, Opium, is attracting a wee VIP crowd. Friday night saw some familiar faces looking to sample curries of red, green, and yellow...

19.03.14 Mr Darcy's Gone Fishin'...
We spotted Six Nations champ Gordon Darcy leaving Today FM's Ray Darcy show yesterday missing about 2 stone of awesome celtic beardage and sporting a rather nice new rain coat. Now, we're not sure what vibe he's going for but the trendy garment reminded us of a green wax version of the jackets the brave Bering Sea trawler men wear on The Deadliest Catch tv show. Has the Irish weather got that bad folks? Yeah. Suppose...

14.03.14 Who Bey This Famous Woman??
There was an unidentified singing superstar hanging around Dublin over past week with her mogul rapper husband and their wee cute baby girl. Yet, no one in Ireland knew who they were? Yup. She sold out The O2 four nights in a row, had thousands of fans hanging outside her City Centre hotel, made all the tabloid front pages with her trip to Dublin Zoo, and STILL remained anonymous... Well, if you happen to subscribe to US 'ShowBiz' website TMZ, then you’ll know who this woman & her husband are – coz we haven’t a clue...

13.03.14 They're Calling Them Jackeen...
Little did we know when we spotted the big sparkler on ShowBiz.ie fav Madeline Mulqueen's finger this week that a global news scoop would follow. Yup. Seems we inadvertently outed Madeline Mulqueen & Jack Reynor's secret engagement. Ooopsie! Our Madzer was out on Grafton Street shooting a pilot TV show for RTE called Bounce. Right. Off to buy a new hat for the 'Jackeen' wedding in Limerick where, we're sure, there'll be a Horse Outside...

13.03.14 Kavanagh Gets Cherry Brogues...
If you happen by the Grand Canal at Baggot Street Bridge you might spot the benched contemplative gentleman in the ruby red slippers. And no, Patrick Kavanagh isn't channelling Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. Some moron got at Ireland's most iconic poet with a can of spray paint and updated his wardrobe. Well, the joke's on the vandal. Red shoes are SO last season. Duh...

12.03.14 They're Calling Them Rozella...
When they held hands & stared into each other's eyes, one in a short summer dress and the other in jeans and a blazer, we instantly knew this was Ireland's Most Stylish Couple. Yup. Daniella Moyles & Rozanna Purcell being the big messers that they are at the VIP Style Awards 2014 launch at The Style Club today. They're calling them Rozella...

12.03.14 Shane Channeling Johnny Bravo...
We couldn't be happier or more excited for comeback king Shane Filan making his mark post Westlife and money woes. One of the nice guys in ShowBiz folks. More than that, we're lovin' the new quiff Mr Filan, it would put Johnny Bravo to shame. Our Shane is playing solo, flying without wings you might say, at The Olympia this week so if you haven't got your hands on a ticket, sort it...

11.03.14 The Huberman Machine Goes On...
Right. You know it's time to update the ShowBiz.ie when Rochey sends ya worried texts! Here goes... Big news for Irish funny film fans. Our very own First Lady, Amy Huberman is juggling a baby, Brian O'Driscoll, and The Machine. Yup. Her fictitious brother in The Stag aka Peter McDonald. And all the cast of the new hilarious Irish movie were out at The Late Late Show last weekend Emperor Penguin style. Sadly, Hubbers was upstaged by Harry Shearer at RTE coz, you know, he's Harry Shearer. And, Spinal Tap trumps everything every time forever...

10.02.14 Corrie Gal Puts Foote in WV...
Better known as Katy Armstrong in Coronation Street, actress Georgia May Foote was back in town last weekend decked-out in a stunning Starla dress for a night in the Wright Venue. Even though she looks like a teenager the Corrie gal was celebrating her 23rd birthday at Baroque with fiance John Sage. Yup. All the best ones are gone folks...

03.02.14 Celebrity Snipper Goes Fifty...
In Irish ShowBiz terms we don't think there's anyone growing old quite as disgracefully as Peter Mark celebrity snipper Michael Doyle. The man that gives good hair celebrated his 50th birthday at House on Leeson Street last night surrounded by a mixture of friends, work colleagues, his clientele, and some likely-lads in dresses. Needless to say, a drinky-winky or two as had and the party went on into the wee hours. Our snapper got out while the going was good. Happy Birthday Micko...

30.01.14 Our Sam Back On The Road...
Us lot here at ShowBiz.ie will be forever connected to Samantha Mumba. Why? Well, her wee career started back in 2000 with her 'Gotta Tell You' smash hit, around the time we launched this ickle website (same design too!). Time flies and we stayed pants. Anyhoo, our Sam was back home at Today FM today to re-relaunch herself with a new single 'Only Just Begun' and an Irish tour kicking off on February 14th - Valentine's Day... Apt. Well, it is a love affair we have with lovely Sammy Mumba...

27.01.14 The Glenda Gotta New Motor...
Since we've known The Glenda of The Gilson, she's always been nipping about town in wee sporty cars. Lately we're hearing she's gonna be presenting her own petrol head TV show like a sexy Jeremy Clarkson, seemingly her taste in cars has got a lot roomier. Last week we spotted GG parking her new Ssangyong Korando SUV on South William Street and swiftly grabbing a parking ticket coz, you know, a bright yellow wheel clamp would definitely clash with her shiny black SUV...

27.01.14 Karena Models In Josh Selfie...
There was all sorts out at The Late Late last weekend folks with Rob Kearney and Michael Bolton leading the scrum of stars. But all eyes were on Hollywood hunk Josh Hartnett who was at RTE with girlfriend Tamsim Egerton. Par for the course, social media was up in arms when model Karena Graham was seemingly randomly pulled from the Late Late audience by Tubridy to pose in a selfie with Josh live on air. Our Karena has since denied she was a plant. Hmmmm, we're saying nowt...

23.01.14 Vogue Extends Her Stay...
Since our fav Fade Streeter Vogue Williams became Mrs McFadden her feet haven't hit the ground. So much so, we're not quite sure where herself and Brian call home. Yesterday we spied Vogue, Holly Carpenter, and Aoibhinn McGinnity all getting their hair extensions seen to by the extensions queen Ceira Lambert at her hair studio out in Shankill. Yup. She gives good hair...

21.01.14 Whelans In The Mid Twenties...
Whelans of Wexford Street is proper piece of Dublin culture which stayed true to the course all the way through the Celtic Tiger nonsense. Proper turf fire and a decent pint in the heart of the city. Last night saw the 'Whelans 25' launch, celebrating 25 years as a live music venue. Ah sure, it's only a wee gem of a spot...

20.01.14 The Garth Loves The Glenda...
They are two ShowBiz behemoths and we'd love them to have kids together. So you can just imagine our joy when Garth Brooks held-up Glenda Gilson's left hand with a giant sparkler on her ring finger in Croke Park today? Shame, she's already betrothed to Rob McNaughton and it was his ring our Garth was admiring... Still, at least he's back playing Croker on the 25th & 26th of July - with or without The Glenda...

17.01.14 The Bordello Gets A Makeover...
It's the only nightclub in Dublin to stand the test of time and a lot of its success is down to the history of celebrity filled parties dripping off the walls of Lillies Bordello. And of course, the best staff of any club in town. Last night hosts Rebecca Hughes and Paul Smith welcomed guests to the relaunch of Lillies where decadence and pleasure came served in silver ice buckets...

16.01.14 Wolves Love Wallstreet Flick...
The social wolfpack were out in force last night for the Irish premiere of The Wolf of Wallstreet. Seems the themes explored touched a nerve with most of the attendees who were singing the film's praises on Twitter after the curtains came down. Or, maybe was the Leo DiCaprio affect...

15.01.14 Spring & Summer Arrive at BTs...
Ok. So the weather may be as miserable as a well-smacked-arse but do not fret folks for Spring & Summer have arrived. That's right. Top models Thalia Heffernan, Rozanna Purcell, and Joanne Northey have brought forth the new season's fashions at Brown Thomas. Yup. 2014 will see the likes of Alexander McQueen, Erdem, J.W. Anderson, Lanvin, Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, Tom Ford, Victoria Beckham and Prada at BTs. Yipeeee...

13.01.14 Whitmore Home To Smashbox...
She's in demand over in that London what with MTV and that I'm A Celebrity thing, but our very own Laura Whitmore likes to get home as much as she can. Last night she was partying at Fade Street Social with the likes of Angela Scanlon and other fashion femmes. All part of a Smashbox Cosmetics private dinner & free portrait sketching session. Least, that's what we think what was going on...

13.01.14 Keitho Makes A Big Splash...
Boyzoner Keith Duffy was all smiles and pearly whites today when he turned-up at Today FM's Ray Darcy Show. The man-band man was all chats and giggles about making the semi-final of hit ITV diving show Splash! Seems there are no end to the things Mr Duffy can throw his hat at, just, we're not too sure about the shamrock emblazoned Speedos...

13.01.14 The Jed Heads Still Around...
We always felt the whole Jedward thing was gonna be a flash-in-the-pan but fair-play to John & Edward Grimes, they stuck around a lot longer than anyone predicted. But, if we were to give the lads some advice we'd tell them to take a wee break and come back in a year or two with a whole new grown-up vibe. Saying that, when we bumped into the talented twins in Dublin Airport last weekend, they were still surrounded by throngs of teenage girls. So, what do we know...

13.01.14 Kelly Out On A Saturday Night...
The last time we saw Kelly Mongan on our screens she was as pregnant as a girl could be and singing her head off on The Voice... Well, she's since had a wee baby boy and has yet to sign a record deal, the stunning 20 year old traveller gal has yet to see the money come rolling in... She was on The Saturday Night Show last weekend talking about her RTE documentary due to be aired later this month... Go Kelly!

10.01.14 Maddie Homecoming Mul-Queen...
We've known Horse Outsider Madeline Mulqueen for many a year here at ShowBiz.ie, top gal. Since then she's hooked-up with Hollywood's hottest Irish star Jack Reynor and is rarely home. But since our Jack's back doing a wee Irish movie so is our magic Maddie. We snapped her today at Dublin Airport Arrivals welcoming home a pal retuning from Australia. Yup. Us Paddies don't just fly out to Oz, some actually come back...

09.01.14 Karena G Sure Aint No Plank...
So we're back getting motivated at Pilates Plus Dublin studios in Dun Laoghaire folks. Yup. With our fav blonde model Karena Graham we're doing the 'Fitness after the Festivities' 2014 promotion. We always thought our Karena looked best with a surfboard under her arm, turns-out she's even hotter in Plank Pose...

08.01.14 Our Angela's Still Standing...
Ireland's only celebrity stylist Angela Scanlon was spotted today sashaying down Dawson Street like a boss, rocking a leopard-print coat and a pair of shades Elton John would have been proud of back-in-the-day. We're thinking 2014 is going to be huge for our Angie with her stylist-stock going through the roof in both Dublin & London... That's how you do style folks, don't just be a follower of fashion. Set the trend...

06.01.14 Our Ray's Gone All Fruity...
Today FM's top radio host Ray Darcy returned to work with a bee in his bonnet. Well, more like a healthy lunch tucked under his arm... Yup. At a time of New Year Resolutions our Ray had a lunch consisting of bananas & blueberries. Watch this space, sure it'll be Maccer Dees & kebabs come this time next week...

06.01.14 A New Year, A New Nadia...
Model come singer come actress come TV personality, Nadia Forde, was spotted on the bustling streets of Dublin today. First bit o' pappin' we've done this New Year 2014 but we like how the tanned babe mixed-it-up with tight black gym gear clashed with an oversized bright scarf... Saying that, don't text-and-walk Nadia...

18.12.13 Karena Pumps For Pilates Plus...
We've noticed a trend in the Irish modelling world of late folks. Most of our favourite ladies wot pout for a living have turned away from curves and opted for tone. Yup. Muscle definition chic and core strength was on show last week when Karena Graham and Lucia Scerbikova promoted Pilates Plus Dublin at the beach on a mild December afternoon...

10.12.13 Liffey Valley Gets Some Sky...
We haven't really caught-up with Miss Ireland Aoife Walsh since she went off to the Worlds then headed home to Tipperary soon after. So last weekend we were happy to share a drinks-straw with Aoife and fellow models Hayley Ryan & Holly Keating at the launch of Sky Nightclub and Roof Terrace at Liffey Valley...

02.12.13 WV Gets Some Baroque Style...
Sure the Baroque period in 16th century Rome was associated with grandeur in art, architecture, literature, dance, and music. But that doesn't mean it can't be recreated & reinacted in 21st century Dublin. Well folks, gorgeous Baroque grandeur was on show at The Wright Venue last weekend...

13.11.13 Our Pippa Has Gone Online...
Our favourite model Mum Pippa O'Connor has taken control of her media profile by launching her own website full of her fashion, beauty and mothering tips. We've been on and it's well worth click or ten. So get over there as soon and as often as you can, visit Pippa.ie...

05.11.13 Valerie Is Miss Bikini Ireland...

Fashion blogger and all-round hottie Suzanne Jackson is bucking the trend folks. Just when you thought everyone's given-up on print our SJ has compiled a compendium of her vast online knowledge and squashed it all into a big book called So Sue Me. It's in the shops in good time for Christmas, and we're hearing, already selling out...

25.10.13 I Can See Fade Streeters...
Those pesky Fade Street girls are like buses folks. We wait months to see one, then three of them show-up within a few days of each other. Yup. In a week that saw us hanging with Vogue & Lo-Jo, last night we caught-up with a purple headed Dani Robinson at 'Thor: The Dark World' Premiere. All we need now is wee Cici for a full-house...

22.10.13 Farreller & Dricco Do The Biz...
We've been long-time slaggerers of The Late Late Show but this year, thus far, we've been made eat extra helpings of humble pie. Mmmmm humble pie... Last weekend saw a stellar line-up out at RTE with the likes of Colin Farrell and Brian O'Driscoll in the hot seat...

22.10.13 Amy Makes The Best Of The Rain...
You know folks, it's almost impossible to make our fav Irish actress Amy Huberman any more cute. Yesterday The Hubes went into cute overdrive by sheltering from the elements at Today FM under an umbrella and a slightly oversized woolly hat with a pink bauble on top. Yup. Squee...

20.10.13 Angela's Our Foxy Ginger Fox...
Seems like stylist to the stars Angela Scanlon is on a mission folks. Yup. She's hell-bent on representing fellow red-heads and just like Justin Timberlake did with sexy, bringing ginger back.

18.10.13 Fade Streeters Finally Reunited...
It wasn't just the show that signalled the end of the Celtic Tiger folks, many say it was the actually cause of the crash. Yup. Ireland's first ever surreality TV show Fade Street changed Irish televisual landscape forever and brought us a fresh-faced model called Vogue who went on to become the world-wide phenomenon Brogue...

16.10.13 Here Come The Bachelors...
One thing Dublin isn't short of is bachelors folks. The ladies are certainly in a minority out there in club land since the Celtic Tiger got the black lung. But who is the best man we hear you say? Well, those fashionable folk over at Stellar Magazine have the answer...

10.10.13 Sinead Returns To The Late Late...
We're starting to see a pattern folks. Our very own Sinead O'Connor spouts out something controversial publicly and true-to-form she's on the Late Late Show the following Friday. Ironically, Shinners then kinda refuses to talk about the thing she's getting all the publicity about, and none of us dare not touch the remote as the TV runs right-up the arse of the car in front. 'Twas a busy night out at RTE...

07.10.13 Holy Cow The New Coppers...
Coppers just got some up-market competition folks. It's a bit further away from Harcourt Street, set in Sandyford, but we're sure they'll come in their droves to dine and dance at The Copper Bar & Holy Cow Steakhouse. We were there for the launch last Friday night...

03.10.13 Hashtag Rabo Tweeties Awards...
Oh dear. We think it may be over for Twitter folks. And right before their IPO too. You see, Twitterers got their own Irish awards ceremony last night, instantly making the social network uncool. Remember when South William Street was cool? Yup. Then it got its own awards show. Damn them hipsters...

02.10.13 Victoria's Brown Thomas Secret...
Good news folks. Sexy supermodel Victoria Silvstedt was in Brown Thomas a few days back launching her 'Very Victoria' lingerie collection. Bad news. She wasn't modelling the underwear herself. Good news. Irish supermodels Thalia Heffernan & Rozanna Purcell stood-in for vivacious Victoria...

30.09.13 Love/Hate Back Next Weekend...
A pretty fab line-up on last weekend's Late Late Show folks, and even a break from the old creaking format. The big bit on Tubridy's chat show was a decent selection of the Love/Hate cast seated in a semi-circle reading Tweets getting us all excited about the coming series which starts next Sunday...

27.09.13 Happy Happy Arthur Scargill Day...
We know. All that Christy Moore hype over Arthur's Day this week coz of all the pints of Arthur-Scargill getting consumed and vommed back-up mainly in the Camden Street area of the city. Happily, this year seemed to be a lot less To-Arthur-y and more about the live choons banging out of the boozers...

24.09.13 M&S AW13 at The RHA...

11.09.13 Everleigh Suits You Sir...
That dapper dude Patrick J Adams from hit US TV show 'Suits' left his tin-of-fruit at home and made his way to Dublin this week folks. With a watering-can in his hand and a leather jacket on his back, Paddy sure got the girls all excited at Everleigh Garden...

10.09.13 ISPCC & Talented Irish Women...
For many a year we lamented the lack of balance between the large number of famous international Irish males we had compared to the number of famous international females. But no more. At last week's ISPCC luncheon at The Four Seasons Hotel we were surrounded by successful beautiful amazing Irish women doing-it home & away. Sisters are doing it for themselves folks...

06.09.13 DFF Back On Our Streets...
If you stuck your thumb out for a bus yesterday folks and suddenly found yourself surrounded by leggy Amazonians pouting and wotnot, don't fret. It's not an invasion of incredibly hot women.

18.07.13 Rozanna: Thigh'll Be Back...

Shout The Musical opened at The Tivoli last week bringing waves of Sixties nostalgia loaded with fashion and music from the swingingest of decades.

Saying that, she was probably just wearing the first thing that fell out of her infamous wardrobe...

05.07.13 Do You Like Dags? Well, We Do...
It seems there's no telly for the Tallafornians for the foreseeable (boohoo, weep, etc) but there's nothing holding back the sexy & sociable West Dubliners.

27.06.13 Wanna Get Cannonballed??
Those crazy Cannonballers are about to get together once again for the annual Run. Yup. Petrol-heads and busty babes combine for three days every August, all in the name of fast flash motors. Yesterday Tubs hooked-up with our Rosanna & Nadia to launch the whole exhausting affair...

26.06.13 Now You See Me Raven Hair...
She's the hottest property we have out in Hollywoodland at the moment, winning every big role there is for a fresh-faced innocent. Yet, Saoirse Ronan showed-up at the Irish Premiere of 'Now You See Me' at The Savoy last night rocking goth-chic with dyed black tresses and a military coat...

24.06.13 Rihanna Queen of the Clubs...
You'd have to be living under a sound-proof rock not to know Rihanna was hanging out in Dublin over the weekend gone. It seemed like every club in town was having an after-concert-after-party. We made it to three such venues, our Ri-Ri even made an appearance at one...

21.06.13 A Delish Cult Film Intermission...
It's probably our fav Irish movie up there with Adam & Paul, and there's no doubt it's a cult classic in the making. This week we went along to Mega Mart for a Jameson Cult Film Club showing of 'Intermission' where Colin Farrell was Employee of the Month...

18.06.13 It's Like, World War Z List...
If like us you're a big fan of the zombie movie genre, well folks, things just even zombier. They've only gone and put Brad Pitt in the lead role of World War Z. And if that wasn't drama enough for you we had Tallafornia former love birds at the Irish Premiere last night, with one of them showing off a new bit of eye-candy...

16.06.13 Glenda's Chocolate Salty Balls...
The weather gave us four seasons every ten minutes and yet it was still a rather tasty weekend. Over at the lovely Iveagh Gardens we had another year of culinary delights, festive fare, and gorgeous Glenda with the Taste of Dublin 2013...

13.06.13 Boyzone Do Uncle Gaybo...
They may be sadly down a member but the Boyzone boyz went back to where it all started last night when they recorded a 'For One Night Only' special with Gay Byrne to celebrate their 20th anniversary. We're so excira right now some wee just escaped...

11.06.13 The Housewives Still About...
We have a bone to pick with Reality TV show makers and telecasters (is that a thing?) of Ireland folks. They only ever get two rounds of series out, and as we learn to love & simultaneously hate the motley crew of cast members, they get cancelled. Yesterday we caught up with Lisa Murphy & Jo Jordan of Dublin Housewives infamy, still glamming-it-out on South William Street...

07.06.13 Our Angie's A Wee Jewel...
According to those in the know, Angela Scanlon is a presenter, fashion writer and stylist on the up... With an edge. And you gotta have an edge folks. All we know is she's a hot ginger Irish gal with attitude and freckles in buckets, last night we caught up with her good self at the 'Alex And Ani' launch in Arnotts...

06.06.13 It's Like Dublin. Only Sunnier...
Would you Adam & Eve it folks? Ireland and sunny weather don't usually belong in the same sentence so we're all chuffed to bits and trying to rock 'pasty paddy in the sun' chic. This week we spotted a few familiar faces trying to navigate early summer fashion and Dublin in the sun...

05.06.13 The Glenda Goes Pink For Flora...
Some 40,000 ladies (and a few likely lads disguised in bras & wigs) ran, walked, and strutted along the sun scorched streets of Dublin this June Bank Holiday Monday for the Flora Women's Mini Marathon 2013. Of course, The Glenda and a few other ShowBiz.ie regulars were out legging-it for charity...

31.05.13 Our Vogue Loves Tommy...
Ever since our Vogue Williams became Mrs Vogue Williams McFadden she has become a bit of an international rover, following her hubbie and the DJ work around the globe. Good news - we hear she's landed a right decent nixer here in Dublin. We caught up with / papped her at the Tommy Hilfiger Summer Shopping Evening last evening...

29.05.13 Models Love Goonies. Who Knew?
It's been many a year since we ate Baby Ruths with Chunk & Sloth but ne'er did we expect Dublin's top model types to be big fans of The Goonies. Well folks, it seems 80s nostalgia is right back in style at Movies at Dundrum. Popcorn is vegan-friendly, right?

28.05.13 Our Jim Goes Corrr...
In recent years Jim Corr has become more famous for his conspiracy theories & woes in the press rather than his most excellent music in The Corrs. Happy to say, our Jimbob was back to his old self when judged Miss Vanilla 2013 at Vanilla Nightclub last weekend with a few other likely lads...

22.05.13 Fancy An Aul Fashion Fling...
Fashion and charity go hand in hand in this town folks, those shrewd stylistas like to mix the two so those without get something from those with. Recently, we made our way to the Fashion Fling event with Karen Koster & Kathryn Thomas at the Radisson Blu...

22.05.13 Madison Gals Like A Dart...
Ever since the Conor Buckley fella leant his midas-touch to the newly opened Madison Nightclub on Wicklow Street the place has been choc-a-bloc folks. Last weekend saw TV Darts babes Kelly Donegan & Hazel O'Sullivan getting down and we even had our very own Bressie on the decks knocking out the choons...

21.05.13 CARI Celebrates 10 Summers...
It's a favourite charity for ladies that like to lunch and one of our favourites too folks. That's right, last weekend saw the annual CARI Summer Lunch and Fashion Show at The Shelbourne Hotel, and to top all that, it was the 10th birthday for the worthy Irish charity supporting children...

16.05.13 Get Ready For Gatsby Chic...
It's already looking like Leonardo DiCaprio’s latest epic movie The Great Gatsby is going to be the big big movie of the summer. Set in The Roaring Twenties with themes of decadence, idealism, and excess – it was the snazzy period fashions that were all the go at last night's Irish Premiere at The Savoy...

15.05.13 Fast Models & Furious Escorts...
There was ner a sign of Vin Diesel nor The Rock at the Fast & Furious 6 premiere at The Odeon Point Village last night. But at least we had a few sexy models on hand and a classic Ford Escort RS1600. Nice...

14.05.13 Rochie's Gals Hit Harrys...
One of the great Irish model agency traditions is the annual glam Christmas Party folks, as sure as Santa himself. But our Andrea Roche has kicked off a another tradition, the all-new Model Summer Party. Yup. Rochie's gals hit Harry's on the Green for some Summer Lovin' last weekend...

13.05.13 Nidge & The Boys On The Lash...
It was a pretty busy weekend folks here at the Biz of Show. All sorts of parties & peoples to be snapped. But we wuz on total pappin' high-alert for the Love/Hate season 4 wrap party, feelers & feckers out everywhere. They nearly fooled us by having it in the very same location as last year's bash, but you can't out-fox a foxy fox, as they say...

10.05.13 Buy Glenda's & Amy's Dresses...
Ever want to know what it would feel like to walk around in Glenda Gilson's or Amy Huberman's glam clothes? Well, you no longer have to swipe gear off their washing lines folks. Yup. You can now get their garbs at the very reasonable price with the 'Buy My Dress' campaign...

07.05.13 She's A Bonnie Wee Lass...
Irish broadcasting ledge Gerry Ryan may be gone but he's most certainly living on through his talented tribe of ShowBizzy kids. Last week Bonnie Ryan (20) stepped out on stage at The Grand Social Bar as a promising new solo pop singer. And of course, there was a few other Ryaners in the crowd cheering her on...

02.05.13 Strictly Come Johnny Giles...
We're big fans of old footage of Johnny Giles doing twinkle toes on the soccer pitch. Hey, we even dig how his eyebrows dance on screen during his punditry. But seeing the former footie star doing his thing on the dance-floor? Well, that's another matter. This week we went Strictly Come Soccer with our Johnny & a bevy of models...

01.05.13 The Voice Wraps It Up Baby...
Well now, well now. The Voice of Ireland wrapped-up last night with the talented Keith Hanley walking away as victor. And in true music industry style, the cast and crew hit the town for the traditional wrap-party. Even our Kelly Mongan tagged along despite being a tad past her due-date...

30.04.13 After The VIPs This Happened...
So, they all went in to the Peter Mark VIP Style Awards 2013 looking like so many new pennies, all shiny and bright. But after a few half shandies, a bit of bop, and all that VIP razzmatazz - a good few of the gorgeous guests let it all hang out folks. Witness, after the VIPs...

28.04.13 Big VIP Style At The Marker...
We were promised a pared-down bare-bones recession-ista Peter Mark VIP Style Awards 2013 folks. It was anything but... That's right, it felt like a far bigger much brassier and more bodacious affair than ever before at The Marker Hotel. Here is a mere fraction of all the lovely gunas rocking the red carpet last weekend...

24.04.13 Kathryn's PermGate Resolved...
RTE TV presenter Kathryn Thomas can do no wrong folks, she's basically the Copper Face Jacks man's Georgia Salpa. Yet it all went a bit 80s last weekend when she rocked a modern day twist on the dreaded Perm. We caught up with her at Today FM yesterday where all she was doing was putting the record & her tresses straight...

22.04.13 Quizzing Out For The O'Briens...
There's a novel new way to fund films folks. Yup. We're talking table quizzes. That's right, the aul knees-up down the boozer with a few teams with funny names like The Cupid Stunts answering questions is a shrewd way of getting seed-money to get your wee flick moving. So says our Slaine Kelly & her latest project 'The O'Briens'...

19.04.13 Get Your DITness On...
Here at the ShowBizness of Irelandness we like to keep our eye on what's coming next, so you'll always find us checking out what those student types are up to. Last night we wuz at the Vodafone DIT Fashion Show 2013 in Vicar Street watching all the talent doing their thang...

17.04.13 Ladies. Prepare To Be Broody...
Now, we don't normally run photos of babies and all that girlie stuff but after TV3 presenter Anna Daly introduced her baby Euan to us outside Mothercare yesterday we just went all goo-goo-gooey. Ladies & gentlemen, prepare to be broody...

15.04.13 The Notorious Late Late Show...
It has taken a while but finally The Late Late has developed an edge folks. Last weekend MMA fighters Conor McGregor & Cathal Pendred gave Tubridy a few rounds of verbal on the RTE chat show. Turns-out the boys can talk as good as they mix their martial arts...

12.04.13 Hubers Out For Some Kicks...
Our favourite mommy / actress / author Amy Huberman is being all entrepreneurial again folks. Yup. She's doing a bit of the aul shoe design. Now, what with her being the busiest human being in Ireland, we don't understand where she got the time to produce a full range of exquisite Bourbon shoes for women... Elves. Yup. She must have Elves...

09.04.13 Great Scots It's Queen Mary...
If you happen down by the Lord Edward Street direction you might find yourself in 15th century France folks for TV movie 'Reign' is currently shooting at Christ Church. The place is full of actors & extras in period garbs. This week we caught up with the lovely Adelaide Kane & Mary Queen of Scots...

08.04.13 B*Witched Be Back Baby...
They fight like their Da does, do the Irish dancin', and wear the double denim. They are of course B*Witched folks and they are back. We caught-up with the lively Sinead, Lindsay, Keavy, and Edele at The Late Late Show last Friday night...

04.04.13 The Ryan Line Is Open...
Sure you would have to be living under a rock at the bottom of a lake beneath a glacier in Sligo not to know Tom Cruise was in town this week getting an Oirish Authentication Cert & launching his movie 'Oblivion' at The Savoy. We generally lurked outside sleb-spotting and copped the two Ryan boys, Rex & Elliot, looking all growed-up & hipsterish...

04.04.13 Koh Blimey It's The Salpa...
What with all her fancy hobnobbing over in that London and other far flung places, we don't get to see too much of Georgia Salpa these days. Sure, we fell-out a few times over the years but what family doesn't? Well, The Salpa was home last night chowing down the finest Thai grub at Koh Restaurant with her model mates...

02.04.13 They're Calling Them QuilMo...
They've been a hot ShowBiz couple about the town for a while yet Daniella Moyles and Dara Quilty have flown under the radar by keeping it all on the D.L. We spotted love's young dream as they arrived at The Saturday Night Show last weekend, they're calling them 'QuilMo'. Apparently...

02.04.13 Miss Monahan is Miss Bucks...
Our favourite time of the year, 2013 Beauty Pageant Season has kicked off folks and we couldn't be happier. First out of the gates was Buck Whaleys with the lovely Kate Monahan taking home the tiara & the Easter Eggs last Sunday night...

29.03.13 No Room at The Post Ironies...
When does a joke stop being funny folks? Easy. A millisecond after the people it's taking the piss out of get in on it. Yup. Those crazy hipster VVIP Awards katz gathered last night at The Academy & had a hoot jibing & wotnot at the actual VIP Style Award set (largely the same people), sadly it was closed off to the likes of ShowBiz.ie as we’re not seen as ironical enough to witness such spontaneous hilarity & sarcy witticisms...

27.03.13 An Indie Pendence Day Bite...
Indie Pendence Days are coming to Cork this summer folks but don't worry, we won't need Will Smith to get us out of an intergalactic overlord suppression type scenario. Instead, we will have De La Soul & more hipsters than you can shake an ivory handle antique walking stick at for Ireland's biggest Music & Arts Festival...

26.03.13 Time To Get Your VIP On...
It's only a mere month away from the Peter Mark VIP Style Awards 2013 folks, and all of the favourites are already out being uber stylish on a daily basis, looking to scoop-up one of those coveted prizes. Yesterday we went for a slap-up breakfast with some of the top style contenders on South William Street where ner a greasy spoon fry-up was consumed by anyone...

24.03.13 Ballsbridge Full of Angels...
There was a mammoth fashion show extravaganza over Ballsbridge way last Friday night where everyone and anyone was on the catwalk having the craic & raising money for charity. We are of course talking about the Green Angel Skincare 'Angels For Barnardos' event at the Ballsbridge Hotel...

20.03.13 Celeb Types in for St Paddys...
Between all the gaiety, blood, boozin' and tears there was actually a few hip young popstaresque celebrity types in town over Paddy's weekend folks. Yup. We had the likes of One Direction, Girls Aloud and Carrie Underwood knocking around this rather green-around-the-gills city...

15.03.13 We Love St Patrick In A Bikini...
Has anyone noticed the high number bikini clad photocalls in the papers this week with a St Patrick's Day theme? We're not complaining or anything but we're not quite sure Saint Paddy would have approved. Yesterday it was Miss Bikini Ireland 2012 Lisa Hogan's turn to hang out with Molly Malone & do what she does best...

14.03.13 Diet Coke Dude Does Dublin...
The ladies of Dublin took a rather long Diet Coke break yesterday to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Diet Coke. Well, that's not strictly true folks. Women were mainly out drooling over British male model Andrew Cooper who was giving it the full Blue Steel over at BT2...

13.03.13 Ne-Yo Paints Everleigh Red...
R&B superstar Ne-Yo rocked into town last night with the lovely wee Tulisa by his side for a big concert at The O2. But the talented song and dance man didn't just leave it there folks, hell no. He hit Everleigh Garden for his gig afterparty, and even brought his very own drink...

11.03.13 Our Lou Lookin' For Love...
As unlikely as it sounds folks, apparently our fav model-come-DJ Louise Kavanagh can't find herself a full-time fella in Dublin and we hear she's on an iPhone dating App finding a man. We caught up with her good self & her Smartphone at Madison nightclub last weekend where there wuz loadsa eligible lads for the choosing...

11.03.13 Mumba Has FAG Appeal...
We don't really know why our very own Samantha Mumba has dropped off the Pop radar over the past few years folks, but we've really missed the gal. Last weekend she made her live comeback at F.A.G. in the Andrews Lane Theatre...

08.03.13 They'd Batter Your Ma...
Some of the prettiest gals about town can be the meanest bad-asses when you hit them in the ring folks. Who knew? Last night some of our fav guys & gals gloved-up and knocked the holy romancin' bejaysus outta each other for Dublin Pub Box at Dandelion Bar...

07.03.13 Jesus Died For Chocolate Eggs...
Easter is coming folks and like all Christian holidays we have no idear what our traditions have to do with the actual Biblical event they represent. Saying that, we can see the direct link between Jesus dying on the cross & rising again, with a giant rabbit delivering chocolate eggs once a year on a Sunday in April. So obvious...

05.03.13 Mums Out For Mammy's Day...
We don't know what's in the Dublin water of late folks, but everyone's having babies. It's an epidemic. And we just found out that you can't have a baby without a Mammy (who knew?), so we got to hang-out with all the yummy-mummies at the 16th Annual UNICEF Ireland Mother's Day Lunch at The Four Seasons Hotel last week...

05.03.13 Mad Hatter Macken 30th...
He's the only Irish actor we know of who has a must-do-topless-scene clause written into every movie contract, but hey, we still love the bones of Eoin Macken. Last weekend the Merlin star celebrated his 30th birthday with a 'Magic Hat' party at 4 Dame Lane. We have no idea what that is or if it's even an actual thing...

04.03.13 Charlie Sheen Slashin' Dublin...
Big ShowBiz news day folks. Last night the man with nothing but tiger blood flowing through his veins showed up in Dublin with a wee porn star by his side. As one does. Yup. We're talking Charlie Sheen hanging out at the Slash concert...

27.02.13 Well Stone Me Karma...
When busty model Hazel O'Sullivan peers over her glasses and authoritatively says: "leave your tie at the door." Lads, you leave your tie at the door. Goes without saying. Starting in March all punters will be asked to do similar on Thursday & Friday nights in Karma Stone bar...

27.02.13 Blood & Blondes At The NBA...
We are starting to really get into MMA folks. That's Mixed Martial Arts to all you non jiu-jitsu aficionados. Last weekend saw Cage Contender XVI go down at the National Basketball Arena where there was blood & blondes akimbo...

26.02.13 Ado, Nidge, Elmo & Franner...
You will have to forgive us folks, we're so excited that a small bit of wee just came out. Yup. The world's most awesome TV crime drama ever Love/Hate started filming on the 4th Season yesterday and ShowBiz.ie wuz there sneaking about the West Dublin set like weasels. Nidge weasels...

25.02.13 The Social Networking Night...
There's a new night-time phenomenon sweeping the nation called Social Connections. Basically folks it's a mixture of mixing business with pleasure in a private party setting. Last weekend Dublin's social network landed in Krystle as entrepreneurial types sipped champers with model types...

22.02.13 Hazel Darts Her Mr. DIT...
Our favourite busty Sky Sports Darts babe Hazel O'Sullivan was back on home soil last night to bestow the glorious honour of Mr. DIT 2013 on a gentleman of taste and refinement at Dtwo. Jockey to the oche, and the Crowned Prince was...

21.02.13 It's A Westlife Wonderland...
Great news folks. A favourite celebrity hangout hotel which has been off the radar for a while has refurbished and reopened. That's right, The Morrison Hotel relaunched last night with Westlife's Nicky Byrne hanging out with one of Kian Egan's Wonderland proteges...

20.02.13 Lennon & McCourtney United...
When Lennon & McCartney got together we got The Beatles and some of the greatest music ever made. Now another Irish pairing Sonya Lennon & Brendan Courtney have teamed up and launched their very own fashion label 'Lennon Courtney'. Thus, we have high hopes...

19.02.13 The Hardy Bucks Go Large...
We're not too sure how to approach this one folks. Those Hardy Bucks with their sometimes-hit-sometimes-miss TV show have really upped the ante. Not content with their wee spot on the RTE they've only gone and upgraded to a full-length full-on movie. Brave. We're guessing they've got massive balls. Massive ginger balls...

18.02.13 They're Calling Them Jaceline...
He is Ireland's latest hope out in that Hollywood, she's Limerick's latest hope up in the big lights of Dublin. Individually they are Jack Reynor and Madeline Mulqueen but to those in the know, and by that we mean us, they're collectively called 'Jaceline'. Apparently...

15.02.13 Broken Opens JDIFF 2013...
Maybe it was the Valentines madness folks, but apart from the immensity of Cillian Murphy and Tim Roth, there were very few local celeb types at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival 2013 Gala opening screening of 'Broken' last night. We had high hopes...

13.02.13 We Blame Saint Valentine...
Most of Dublin's snappers looked on with envy as some steady handed lucky fellar fixed and tightened-up her suspender belt. Yup. Former Miss World & Playboy cover-girl Rosanna Davison was lingerie-ing it up for St Valentine's Day at Brown Thomas yesterday...

12.02.13 Our Adriana Is Miss Carnival...
We're thinking the Paddy's Day Parade is gonna get a bit more Rio-esque in coming years what with all the uber hot Miss Carnival Ireland contestants sambaing around the place. Last weekend the very beautiful and rather shapely Adriana Vieira was crowned Miss Carnival Ireland 2013...

11.02.13 A Black Day At The IFTAs...
What with every other Irish female on Twitter claiming to be a Stylist you would think that there might have been a few more hues on the gunas at The IFTAs. Not so. Some style guru in-da-know obviously said "black is in this season" and hey prrresto most of our lovely ladies rocked out in black. Black is the new black. Apparently...

07.02.13 ISPCC Show Was En Seine...
We're not quite sure what combination of PR & production people put together last night's ISPCC fashion show at Cafe En Seine, but it has to be said folks, what a night! It's been a long time around these here parts since we've witnessed such a well attended party with ner a bit o' room to swing a cat. Here is a mere selection of attendees...

06.02.13 Our Lou Loves A Big Tool...
Long time friend of ShowBiz.ie, model & DJ Louise Kavanagh, went a bit end-of-pier yesterday as she promoted the relaunch of Karma Stone Bar on Wexford Street. The former Playboy Bunny gal, clad in bikini & hardhat, got her hands on some big tools and showed the gawping workmen how it's done...

05.02.13 It's Only A Charity Waxing Night...
We've seen all sorts of crazy events organised for charity folks. Fashion shows, football matches, mass head shaving & moustache growing, etc. But male hair waxing in a night club is a first for us. But then again, whatever gets punters to part with their few bob for the Lily Mae Trust is okay with us...

04.02.13 Finally. Miss Carnival Ireland...
We keep saying it folks, there just aren't enough Miss contests in Ireland. Sure we have Miss Universe Ireland, Miss Ireland, Miss Bikini Ireland, Miss Ethnic Ireland, Miss Bettystown West, etc. But still, we need more. Good news, here comes Miss Carnival Ireland 2013...

01.02.13 Our C-Mo Does Street Style...
She's Ireland's favourite sweetheart with the million dollar smile and curves in all the right places. Yup. Our Caroline Morahan aka C-Mo aint just a TV presenter and up-and-coming actress folks, she's also into the aul fashion as we saw when we spotted her doing a street-style shoot for her Littlewoods Ireland blog in Ranelagh yesterday...

29.01.13 The JDIFF 2013 Launched...
Another year and yet another Jameson Dublin International Film Festival folks. That's right. The world's longest name film festival is gearing up for 2013. Thus, we were at the JDIFF programme launch at The Lighthouse Cinema last week...

28.01.13 The U2 Wives Do Guggi...
U2's favourite artist Guggi is back at it again folks. Yup. His fascination with cup shaped objects continues to prevail in his art but it isn't losing him any fans going by the launch of his latest exhibition at the Kerlin Gallery on South Anne Street. The lovely U2 WAGS even made an appearance. They love being called WAGS, no really, they love it...

24.01.13 Adrienne Back From Universe...
We always find the Miss Universe competition a tad biased folks. It's supposed to represent the best Missuses from all corners of the Universe yet it's always held on Earth and an Earthling always seems to win. Coincidence? Even our own Adrienne Murphy didn't win this year, not surprising since she's outta this world...

22.01.13 Davisons Steal Danny's Day...
It was probably the biggest Hollywood movie premiere we've had here in manys a year. But even with the likes of Daniel Day Lewis & Steven Spielberg on the red carpet there was very little glam at the Lincoln bash. Luckily Rosanna Davison made an appearance all gowned-up and ringed-up with Mumsy & Dadsy in tow. The Davisons are so hot right now...

18.01.13 Popping Out To The Erics?
Oh dear, we may have inadvertently caused a wee storm in a B, C or D cup this week. We don’t know cup sizes. You see, we snapped all the guests at the entertainment.ie ERICS Awards this week and while documenting the stunning work of designer Sarah O'Neill on our very own Daniella Moyles, we copped a booby. Yup. There was a wee nip-slip-up...

16.01.13 Mattress Mick & Some Wagons...
Katherine Lynch's Wagon's Den is back with a bang on Thursday nights folks and still as mental as it ever was. This week we were out at The RTE for the pre-record where Michael Flynn aka Mattress Mick had Adele Silva and Natasha Giggs only hanging off him. It's the glasses, chicks can't resist the glasses...

15.01.13 Ye Olde Photocall Returneth...
The very fabric of Irish society has been undermined in the past few recessionista years. Yup. The demise of the traditional cheese-tastic photocall is to blame. Thankfully it returned yesterday thanks to Kit Kat, Karena Graham, and a Coconutrix...

14.01.13 Brendan Chats Up The Wives...
Fair play to that Brendan O'Connor fella folks. The brave Saturday Night Show host took on some formidable women last weekend. Not only was he handling The Dublin Wives but he also took on Sinead O'Connor and Janet Street Porter...

10.01.13 We Only Found Bleedin' Elmo...
He had Dublin's top hit man and the 'RA on his tail yet Elmo The Scumbag managed to give them all the slip in Love/Hate. Yup. He cleverly hid in his Da's shed, last place anyone would look. Anyhoo we nabbed Laurence Kinlan strolling down Grafton Street this week no probs. See? Nidge & Co. aint got a patch on ShowBiz.ie...

08.01.13 Wagons. All Of Them...
Good news folks, that filthy mouthed wagon Katherine Lynch and her long suffering sidekick Brian Dowling are back to camp-up and kitsch-in your TV screens. Yup. Wagon's Den recorded its first 2013 show last night with the likes of Helen Flanagan propping up the couch...

07.01.13 Saturdays Back En Vogue...
The New Year got off to a bang at RTE last weekend with The Saturday Night Show showing The Late Late a clean set of high-heels on the guest list front. And with all the general wedding fever in the air newlywed Vogue Williams was in the hot seat gushing about her fellar Brian McFadden...

03.01.13 It's Brogue & Sammy Sausages...
Lo and behold good people of Ireland, it's only Australia's top celebrity couple Brian McFadden and Vogue Williams back on home turf. Yup. Brogue were about town yesterday for a family day out at the 'Snow White & The Adventures of Sammy Sausages' panto...

03.01.13 Bono Did Busk for Simon...
It's only 2013 folks and as per usual it takes a wee while for the party scene to kick off round these here parts. So this year's first post shall have a Christmas theme. Once again Bono joined Glen Hansard's band of reprobates for the annual Busk for Simon...

24.12.12 No Apocalypse, It's Just Rosie...
We are pretty sure we didn't die during the whole 2012 apocalypse thing but hey, what do we know? We celebrated life on 21.12.2012 by snapping all our favourite models at the Andrea Roche Model Agency Christmas party at Vanilla Nightclub. As usual, from the cold wet step of loneliness & solitude...

20.12.12 Strays At The Christmas Party...
They brought us the likes of Fade Street, Celebrity Salon, and Dublin Housewives yet instead of being locked up for crimes against television the Straywave crew were out last night celebrating their Christmas party. Is there no justice in this country, well, is there?

19.12.12 Sammy Sausages Panto Time...
Christmas Panto time is upon us once again folks and this time out we're over at The Tivoli to catch guests attending Snow White & the Adventures of Sammy Sausages. Plus, lots of model types turned out to support our very own Nadia Forde on stage giving it some of the aul: He's Behind You...

13.12.12 Pat & Sarah Set The Date...

24.09.12 The Badly Constructed Graham Norton Show...
Where to start folks, where to start? Last weekend's Late Late Show was a rearranged format car crash in slow-hideous-motion. Some of the worst produced and presented TV we've seen in many a year.

Work hard, play even harder. That's the motto of the cast and crew of TV3's Celebrity Salon. We caught-up with the so-sozzled-crew as they rolled-out of Harrys Bar the other night after a spot of Karaoke and a sneaky bevy or two or three. All this stuff better make it into the actual show...

26.06.12 Salonites Do The Housewives...
The gang of producers behind such shows as Fade Street, Dublin Housewives, and Celebrity Salon aren't so much handpicking contestants for their new breed of surreality shows folks, more building-up an extended and slightly dysfunctional family. Yup. Those Straywave cats brought the warring Housewives out to be styled by the Celeb Salonites at Hairspray yesterday...

26.06.12 Andre & Atwell Flip The Bird...
So we're a bit slow with our first on-set pictures from the 'All Is By My Side' Jimi Hendrix biopic movie shooting in Dublin at present. Truth is folks, all we was gettin' was frames full of umbrella blockers and face-palms. That was until yesterday when Andre 3000 & Hayley Atwell got stopped and searched by three Bobbies on the beat...

24.06.12 Westlife's Weekend Wave Goodbye...
Now, we wouldn't be the world's biggest Westlife fans but fair play to the lads folks. They sure made a wee bit of talent stretch a very long way and to be really honest, a couple of their tunes aint all that bad. The fivesome-now-foursome said their final farewells with two massive monster Croker gigs last weekend...

20.06.12 Lou Shows Off Her Gypsy Pose...
Yes folks, she went off to that London to become a Playboy bunny and all that but she's home now, and boy did we miss her. We're talking about bustilicious babe Louise Kavanagh and this is how she showed-up for work at The Gypsy Rose yesterday. Like a boss...

19.06.12 Aung San Round Harry's Gaff...
Okay, so the whole Electric Burma concert was a world class show of how to entertain and impress a deserving foreign dignitary. But when all the Aung San Suu Kyi pomp and ceremony died down, it turned into a proper Irish affair. Yup. Bono and Co. legged it around to Harry Crosbie's Docklands gaff for a knees-up before bedtime...

18.06.12 Our Irma's Not For Sale...
Good news men of Ireland, Eastern European Irish based model Irma Mali is back on the market after breaking up with her Script fella. Bad news, her jumper reads "Not For Sale". Darn, and there we wuz searching down the back of the couch for the Communion money and cashing in Granny's Prize Bonds...

18.06.12 Those Sleepy Salonites...
Yikes. Seems like celebrity lifestyle isn't all limos, lollipops, and belly laughs folks. We caught-up with the new cast of the new TV3 Celebrity Salon last weekend filming their bits in the Stephens Green Shopping Centre – but all that buffing and boffing had a few of the poor wee feckers out on their feeties. Pooped so they were...

14.06.12 A Taste Of Damp Dublin...
Jaysus folks. Us poor Irish feckers just can't get a break. The rain is supposed to mainly fall in Spain but while it was belting down here in buckets, those cheeky Spaniards were kicking our wee green arses in Poland. Still, Jamie Oliver and Co. braved the launch of Taste of Dublin yesterday...

13.06.12 That Five Year Engagement Engagement...
Where would you get it folks? An actual Hollywood star turned-up at an Irish movie premiere and a random spontaneous event related to the plot of the film occurred right in front of the press and assembled celeb types. Yup. We're talking Jason Segel and The Five Year Engagement engagement that went down in Dublin last night...

11.06.12 Bressie's Our Top Photocall Gal...
A few little known facts about Bressie off The Voice folks. His name is actually Niall Breslin, he once aspired to be a rugby hero, he used to do music in a band, and he even drew a moustache on a Juliette Lewis poster with a marker! Mad. That was all before he came our fav photocall princess. Let's face it - he's the new Salpa...

10.06.12 A Miss Ireland Born Every Minute...
They've only just picked Miss Ireland 2012 and the next lot of lovelies are lining up to be Miss Universe Ireland 2012. Us Irish luv an aul beauty pageant so we do... Last weekend saw the gorge Mairead O'Farrell crowned Miss SoSueMe.ie out at The Wright Venue and yep, we wuz there too...

07.06.12 Claudine In For A Quick Change...
That fancy pants Claudine Palmer one was in for the 50th Late Late Show thingy last weekend, but her being all LA and stuff, one outfit just wouldn't do the job. Yup. She darted from RTE in a haze of bling and heels, flipped her designer gear, and hit Bucks. Faster than Superman, even without a phone box...

06.06.12 They're Calling It Jedlympics...
For some reason the Olympic Torch, or in this case Olympic Torches, came South to the Rep. of Ireland as part of the London 2012 global relay thingy. For some reason Jedward were our main Olympic Torch bearers of note cuz, you know, their hair looks like the fire on a torch. Well, at least they all got to keep the massive gold cigarette lighters. eBay win...

05.06.12 The Glenda Likes A Shiny Helmet...
It all got a bit big-boys-toys last weekend what with the Bavaria City Racing thing blocking-off half the town. But not even the persistent pelting rain kept the big boys at home, well who wouldn't queue up to see The Glenda get her hands on Jenson Button's shiny helmet! Phnarr phnarr woof woof etc...

05.06.12 That Late Late Lock In...
Well, there's no denying that the much hyped Late Late Show 50th Anniversary special didn't deliver in buckets folks. Lots of guests and lots of memories, bags of impromptu interruptions, and many a dram of the hard stuff sank... Yup. At times it all went Nell McCafferty...

31.05.12 The Salpa Vs The Housewives...
Strange turn of events last night folks, we had Ireland's last favorite celeb and Ireland's latest bunch of celebs throwing separate bashes in the same venue. Yup. We're talking Georgia Salpa in one corner and The Dublin Housewives in the other. Yikes...

30.05.12 The Housewives Have Kicked Off...
Jaaaysus. Where to start folks? TV3's Dublin Housewives hit our screens this week and boy has it delivered. We were expecting this to be a pseudo glammed-up champagne soaked extravaganza of fakeness and false lashes. Sure, we got that. And so much bloody more...

30.05.12 Tea With Balls Is The New Coffee...
A new fad has come to Ireland folks, and to be honest, we're kinda stoked. If like us you get your daily caffeine intake via hot milky beverages in any given coffee shop with an open door, then get ready for alternative. It's called Bubblicity Tea and even our very own Kathryn Thomas digs it...

28.05.12 Ireland Will Never Win Eurovision Again...
As Jedward arrived home from Eurovision disaster yesterday something dawned on us folks, Ireland will never win Eurovision again. Yup. Just like the Brits we like to run-down the world’s biggest music contest but as last weekend showed, Europe has talent in bags and all your Engelberts and Jedwards aint convincing anyone...

24.05.12 Models Back On Kilimanjaro...
It was Harrys on the Green once again last night as our favourite models had another Catwalk 2 Kilimanjaro launch party. Now, we don't think they're going back up the African mountain so we reckon it was all to launch the accompanying TV show they shot way back when. We're not great when it comes to the aul facts...

23.05.12 Stars Opt For Snow Over Sun...
The lovely big warm sun over Ireland was all anyone was talking about yesterday, ironic then that all the celeb types ran to the snow the first chance they got. That's right folks, the Show White and the Huntsman Premiere at The Odeon Point Village was a darn busy affair last night...

22.05.12 The Man Who Made McFadden Quit...
Finally folks, we found him. Yup. And right on our very own bloody doorstep. We're talking about the man whose song 'Mandy' made poor artistically frustrated Brian McFadden quit Westlife, we're hoping Barry Manilow is here to apologise to the Irish Nation...

21.05.12 Mr. Kearney Is Europe's Best...
Well now... The sun finally turned the map the right way round and found its way to Ireland yesterday. Add to that Katie Taylor won in the boxing, Leinster won in the rugby, and the handsome Rob Kearney was on The Green with his ERC European Player of the Year medal. Yup. We're feckin' back baby...

21.05.12 Desperate & Cross In Dublin...
With the end of the era of Desperate Housewives just in sight, some of those lovely ladies have spread out across the globe to say so-long to the fans. Dublin was blessed with the elegance and grace of Marcia Cross aka Bree last weekend, who at a fine fifty cut a long slender figure on The Saturday Night Show...

17.05.12 That Barry McCall Bash In Full...
We've noticed a trend of late folks, more and more celeb types are piling into photo opps with wee Louis Walsh. Yup. It seems the more bouffanty his hair gets the more peeps that are drawn to our Lou Lou. We caught up with the X Factor man and many more at Barry McCall's Pho20graphy exhibition this week...

17.05.12 The Housewives Heart Botox...
Ok folks, we've kinda said we're already jaded with all these non-reality reality shows. Y'know, coz we have slightly functioning brains 'n' stuff. Saying that and knowing the ladies involved, we're still kinda - in an odd and strangely kinky way - looking forward to watching TV3's upcoming Dublin Housewives... and then denying we ever did. Say hello to last night's launch party...

15.05.12 XS Has Got The Wright Stuff...
Okay. So we have no idea what TOWIE is or what Gordie Shore is all about or even why anyone would watch something called Tallafornia. Still, when the 'stars' of such things hit the clubs we're there with bells on. Thus, we went Rathfarnham way last weekend when the lovely Essex girl Jessica Wright hit XS Nightclub...

14.05.12 Love/Hate III In Da Bag...
For the past three years the awesome Love/Hate drama series has been quietly filming around Dublin, and for the most part, somehow staying out of the limelight and the spoiler-sheets. And rightly so. But at the weekend we tracked down the 3rd series wrap party and even saw through the cunning disguises of Robert Sheehan & Co...

13.05.12 Would The Real Miss Ireland Please Stand Up...
Good value folks, two Miss Ireland's for the price of one in the space of two weeks. Yup. Maire Hughes had to give up her crown over the whole AgeGate thing and it was finally handed over to the lovely Rebecca Maguire at The Wright Venue last weekend...

10.05.12 Huzzah! The Glosie Are Back...
Hold on to your damn knackers folks for the biggest thing to happen in Ireland since a little thing called the Peace Process occurred last night. Yup. We snapped Glenda Gilson and Rosanna Davison for the first time together again since the big fall-out of 2010 at The Premiere of The Dictator. Jeez, is there anything Sacha Baron Cohen can't do?

09.05.12 Our Pippa Cooks Up A VPL...
Things certainly got hot in the kitchen at Harrys On The Green last night with Pippa O'Connor in situ as the resident chef in a sheer black dress. And a VPL... Saucy! Tish. Boom... Yup. 'Twas Come Dine With Pippa and all for charity...

08.05.12 MI12 AgeGate Rumbles On...
Oh dear. The row over Maire Hughes being too old for the Miss World finals still hasn't gone away folks. A week after she owned-up to putting the wrong date of birth on the forms she found herself on The Saturday Night Show fighting her corner...

07.05.12 Geordies Party To An XS...
We have no idea what Geordie Shore is folks nor who Charlotte Letitia Crosby is, yet that didn't stop a massive foam party from kicking off when she showed up at XS Nightclub in Rathfarnham last weekend. 'Twas a night of soapy sexy brown ale mayhem reet...

02.05.12 Slaine Home For A Casanova...
Finally folks, much hyped and even awarded Irish movie 'Charlie Casanova' got its premiere screening last night and who should show up? Only ShowBiz.ie fav from yesteryear who went off to live in that London waaay way back, Slaine Kelly. Yup. And it all went down at The Lighthouse...

02.05.12 Students Awarded At Awards Do...
Now all that Miss Ireland AgeGate is starting to abate (caaalm-down, caaalm-down) we can get back to business as unusual. Yer wan off the telly Madeline Mulqueen was at The Student Media Awards with Dermo Whelan last week, as wuz we...

01.05.12 Models. Underwear. Whatevs...
We don't have much time to throw together a story today so we thought we'd just lash up some pics of our fav models in their underwear... Just cuz. We attended 'Styled By...' & 'Lessons In...' fashion shows at Brown Thomas last weekend and this is what we saw with our very own eyes...

29.04.12 Miss Mayo Maire For Worlds...
All the Miss Ireland madness went down at The Ballsbridge Hotel last weekend folks, and despite all the seemingly smart money going on Miss Derry Katie McAuley and Miss Wright Venue Rebecca Maguire, an outsider from Mayo called Maire Hughes swiped the tiara from under their noses. Ladies and gentlemen, your Miss Ireland 2012...

26.04.12 Kathryn Does A Deirdre Barlow...
Erm, dunno folks. We just don't think we can get behind this new big spectacle fad going around. Like, we thought it'd gone away with Deirdre Barlow & Dennis Taylor back in the 80s. Only, yer wan off the telly Kathryn Thomas was rocking dem darn tings at the Louis Copeland Spring/Summer 2012 Customer Evening last night...

26.04.12 Marty Morrissey. That is All...
In all the years we've been shooting Irish celeb types we've managed to miss yer man Marty Morrissey for the most part. And what a sublimely shaped headed man he is with a unique aesthetic that's almost mythical yet indescribable. Yup. We snapped our Marty at 'I Dreamed A Dream - The Susan Boyle Story' this week...

24.04.12 Avengers Don't Assemble Here...
It's hotly tipped to be the big blockbuster film of the summer and will no doubt turn a tidy profit here in Ireland, yet at the Dublin Premiere of Avengers Assemble this week there was ner a sign of the Hollywood stars. Still, at least they rolled out the red carpet and put up a big poster in The Savoy...

23.04.12 Jedward. Post Tara Reid...
Remember Jedward folks? Those two spiky haired effervescent bouncing flubber balls of hyperactive insanity... Well, that was all before Miss Tara Reid rolled into town. Yup. We caught up with the twins yesterday after a few days hanging with the American Pie star, and boy did they have ner a drop of wind left in their sails...

23.04.12 Birthdays Bucks & Bipolar Bands...
Those crafty feckers over at Buck Whaleys aint sitting on their arses during the recession folks, nope they're pulling in the punters on nights when most other clubs are tumbleweed empty. Last Thursday saw Michele McGrath celebrate her 26th birthday and also host spanking new Bucks WTV - the live sessions...

19.04.12 Tara Reid Pulls A Jedward...
This could be worse than that time we found out Britney was a virgin no more folks. Yup. Hold on to your quiffs coz we exclusively snapped the bould Tara Reid (36) on the arm of wee Edward Grimes (20) leaving the 'American Pie: Reunion' afterparty late last night and then sitting on a Jedward's knee in the back of a car... We warned you peeps this is big news...

18.04.12 It's Only Fricken Stifler's Mom...
We honestly don't have that many high-hopes for the latest American Pie instalment 'American Reunion' which has its Irish Premiere this evening with most of the original cast on the red carpet. We caught up with Stifler and even Stifler's Mom as they arrived in Dublin late last night...

16.04.12 Model Moll Mole Toll Role...
Retro's back-in folks as Daniella Moyles and Pippa O'Connor went all street yesterday... Grafton Street. This time out it was all about finding rogue moles on under protected Irish skin. Alas, we found none on these two beauties apart from a rather suspicious tattoo on Miss Moyles' shapely left buttock. Yup. We said buttock...

15.04.12 Lorraine Looking Only McSavage?
We're big big fans of The Savage Eye here at the ShowBiz.ie. Yup. One of our favourite characters is that stereotypical middle aged RTE presenter with the babies shoved up her dress obsessed with the glamour... At first we thought it was an amalgam of The Miriam and The Blathnaid, but now we're thinking there's a lot of The Lorraine in there too...

12.04.12 Miss Ireland V The Housewives...
What a contrasting showdown folks, the youthful hope filled gals vying for the Miss Ireland 2012 title up against the more mature lady from The Southside Housewives show. Both sets of femme fatales crossed paths at Buck Whaleys last night... We didn't stick around long but we bet there was murder on the dance floor...

11.04.12 Models Movin' In On The Mary...
There was a time folks in our not so distant past that no self respecting photocall queen would be seen plying her trade anywhere but the top o' Grafton Street. For shame... Stephen's Green at a stretch. But those heady days are long gone, and watching our very own Nadia Forde playing kick-about on The Mary Street yesterday compounded the bleak state this country is in... And you thought the Coffin Ships were bad...

09.04.12 Father Stone Folks. That Is All...
Look at him. Stare at his face. Now in your mind ask him would he like a cup of tea, then wait. Yes, wait and endure the protracted awkward painful silence before his deadpan response states in glorious monotone monosyllables: "No... No I'm grand thanks..." It's Father Stone folks, Father Ted's nemesis, aka Michael Redmond...

08.04.12 The Stars Spill-Out of The VVIPs...
A quiet Easter weekend on the celeb front folks so we'll revisit last week's car-azy VVIP Awards as the celeboholics filled with celebohol spilled-out early-doors onto the dry Dublin streets as Good Friday's prohibition kicked-in Irish stylee. What? It WAS thee ironic award giving event of the year thus far...

05.04.12 Ironically, The Ironic VIP Awards?
First there was the Alternative Miss Ireland taking the pee outta the whole Miss Ireland pageant thing, now there's the South William Street VVIP Awards taking the absolute urine outta the VIP Style Awards phenomenon. Only problem with the irony here is folks, some the same peeps who turned-up to the VVIPs also attended VIP Style Awards in full seriousness. Aint Ireland just grrrand...

04.04.12 Abbey Actors in Funderland...
We weren't even born the last time there was a musical at the Abbey Theatre, talking like 20 years ago. But that all changed last night when 'Alice in Funderland' historically opened there. Lots of actor types attended but no Helter-skelters or even Bumper-Cars, Funderland has changed...

03.04.12 DJ Lou's A Bucking Babe...
Model Louise Kavanagh's back home from that London after a spell working in the Playboy Club, apparently that qualifies her as an official fully licensed Bunny Girl. Nice. Anyroad, she's back in Dublin spinning the decks at the Nocturne - Night of Indulgence at Bucks Townhouse...

02.04.12 Irish Models Would Fight Yer Da...
We all know how tough the Irish modelling industry is folks but we weren't really aware just how bleedin' tough a few of the glam girlies are. So we were quite taken aback when we attended Dublin Pub Box at The Wright Venue last week where some lovely ladies knocked seven bales of brown shite outta each other...

02.04.12 Your Monday Morn Karena Fix...
Seeing as it's Monday morning we thought we'd get your week off to a bright start with some pictures of our fav model of the moment Karena Graham in her knickers. Yup. The blonde bombshell was doing a bit of the aul modelling for Marlies Dekkers at Brown Thomas last week...

30.03.12 Yes. Models Back On Grafton...
We couldn't be happier folks. The sun came out in Ireland this week, the damned recession is showing signs of ending, and models are back working on Grafton Street. Yup. Sinead Noonan and Rozanna Purcell did an Oasis store shoot on Ireland's broadway of stars...

28.03.12 Our Jen's ajenda Agenda...
With all the media cutbacks, journo layoffs, and Irish franchise newspapers closing down and wotnot there's a big Paul Martin shaped hole left in the tabs for a proper balls-to-the-wall unapologetic ShowBiz hack. Yup. Step forward Jennifer O'Brien, apparently she's got an 'ajenda' and stuff...

27.03.12 They're Calling Them Jedcell...
O what a match. He's got the biggest hair in ShowBiz, she's got the biggest pout. Yup. We are of course talking about Edward Grimes and Rozanna Purcell, they're calling the Jedcell, least we were when they bumped into each other yesterday...

26.03.12 More Feckin' VIPee Schhhtylee...
To show our pure dedication to the Irish interpretation of schhhtyle we hung around outside the VIP Style Awards last Friday night like starving rabid mange ridden dogs. Yup. When there's this much of the fashion happening in one place we're staying put. See all the VIPees as they left the awards clinging on to their goodie bags like they were Lifeboats on the Titanic...

25.03.12 O The Schhhtyle The Schhhtyle...
Well now folks, if you wanted to see all the finest fashion and all the latest schhhtyle you shudda been in Dublin last Friday night for the VIP Style Awards 2012 at The Shelbourne Hotel. More guna nuas and bleached white teeth than you could shake a schhhtylish stick at...

22.03.12 A Wee Fashion DIT-TY For Ya...
Those pesky students were at it again this week folks. Yup. Openly doing the fashion in public... This time out it was the needle pushers from DIT and the annual Vodafone DIT Fashion Show at Vicar Street thingy. Hayley Ryan and Michele McGrath were at it so we put up their picture, no other real connection to this story we can see...

21.03.12 Touch Of The Farreller About This Fella?
We're all massive fans of Love/Hate here at ShowBiz.ie and absolutely salivating over the prospect of the third series. Yesterday we spotted hunky actor Killian Scott, aka Tommy, out shopping and we can't help thinking there's a touch of a younger Colin Farrell about the lad...

20.03.12 Marisa's Gals Got Her Paperback...
Right. You're Marisa Mackle and gonna launch a book all about being pregnant so who else do ya call other than Alison Canavan & Rosanna Davison? Well, Ali is a brand new model Mom and our Rosie has a new wee puppy, so it makes good business sense. To us inanyways...

19.03.12 Alternative Miss Patrick's Day...
Oh what a weekend it was folks. All the dressing up and parading around town showing the world what it's really like to be Irish. Yup. It was the Alternative Miss Ireland 2012. Oh, and that St Patrick's Day thing was also on too we heard...

15.03.12 The Divil Wears Peach...
It's just dawned on us that it has been an age, perhaps even an age and a half, since we last had Rosanna Davison on the front of ShowBiz.ie. Ah sure, seeing as it's Paddy's weekend we thought we'd push her to the fore just because she wore traditional Irish pastel peach at The Devil Inside Premiere last night...

14.03.12 Single Amanda Still Smokin'...
She may well be fast approaching 40 but there's no denying that newly single Amanda Byram is as hot as ever, if not hotter. We caught-up with Ireland's most successful female TV presenter of all time out at the Late Late last weekend...

13.03.12 Love/Hate Back On Mean Streets...
It is with a stomach filled with vinegary guilt that we bring you these here pictures folks. Why? you say. Well, they are from the third instalment of the bloody awesome Love/Hate TV drama and we're no more interested in spoliers than anyone else. Still, we're only feckin' excira that there's more Nidger coming our way soon...

13.03.12 You A Bressie Or A Savage Man?
The good folk out at RTE may not be able to get their wee heads around pulling comments off Twitter but they've sure managed to produce two quite popular yet unlikely leading men in Niall Breslin and David McSavage. Thus dear reader, are more into Bressie's Voice OR McSavage's Eye?

11.03.12 Great Scott It's Rozanna...
We heard chatter on the wires that the Ireland fellas did the business against the invading Scottish hoards in a game of rugbyball last weekend. Truth is, the only reason we knew the rugger was on was because we spotted Rozanna Purcell flirting with some lad in a tartan skirt at O'Donoghues on Baggot Street. Ack-aye...

08.03.12 Assets Women Have Their Day...
What with it being International Woman's Day yesterday (and every other darn day as far as we can see) we totally got down with the gals. For a change. This time out it was nothing but Assets models showcasing Irish fashion design at 'Girls Night Out' at The Kilkenny Shop...

07.03.12 Has Holly Hipstered Healy?
Another day, another Holly Carpenter & Cian Healy story folks (they're calling them Colly). But this time with a twist for the fit fella on our Hol's arm yesterday seemed to be a bit more fashion forward than the other fella from the day before. So, has Holly hipstered-up her rugby man...

06.03.12 They're Calling Them Colly...
We don't know what's attracting former Miss Irelands to the rugby playing male of late, but the rough around the edges lads seem to be going down well with the lovely Misseses. The latest perfect pairing consists of Cian Healy and Holly Carpenter - they're calling them Colly...

04.03.12 It's Project Tallafornication...
The Irish premiere for Project X went down at Cineworld last week folks with the carazy cast of Tallafornia in full affect. Ironic then that the movie revolves around a few kids that cause absolute mayhem with a free-gaff whereas the Tallaght bunch only managed a dull night of Twister & Pictionary at their party pad. Welcome to Irish light entertainment 2012...

02.03.12 The Grafton Lounge Fights On...
Based on the sacred stones where once the mighty Cocoon Bar stood, The Grafton Lounge lives on folks where lesser public houses fell. We were there at the 2nd birthday bash last night with Madeline Mulqueen of Rubberbandits fame. And yes, she had a horse outside...

01.03.12 Models Strip Down For Helena...
We're still in total shock that Danish supermodel Helena Christensen is 43 years old (thanks Wiki!) considering she's looking as hot as ever. Well, she was over at Brown Thomas last week launching luxury lingerie brand Triumph Essence with a few of our fav fashion models...

29.02.12 Georgia's Just Good Friends...
Our wee Georgia Salpa has gone up in the world folks - we randomly snapped her yesterday leaving The Merrion Hotel with a strapping young man carrying her Jimmy Choos shopping bags... A new feller youthinks? Well no, she was quick to point out they were just good friends. Awww...

28.02.12 The Southside Calendar Wives...
There's yet again another totally unscripted (we totally swear!) reality show coming to TV3 called Southside Housewives. It's either gonna be must-see or never-want-to-see-again TV. No grey areas... We met the slinky S'wives at The Calendar Girls Farewell Tour opening last night...

27.02.12 Europe, Here Comes Jedovision...
Right. We don't think the good people of Eurovision really know what they've got themselves into. The Jedward twins ran away with the farcical Late Late qualifiers last weekend and are now heading full-steam to Azerbaijan... But with a huge team of absolutely crazy and social media savvy teens behind them, we don't think second place is an option...

23.02.12 Fade Streeters Go To Trinity...
Not since Michael Caine and Julie Walters filmed Educating Rita have such an unlikely pairing been through the hallowed doors of Trinity College folks. Step forward models come Fade Street stars Rozanna Purcell & Emily McKeogh who attended the Trinity College Fashion Show 2012 last night...

22.02.12 Finally. Jedward Get Sectioned...
It's no secret that former X Factor twins Jedward are nuttier than six factories full of fruitcakes, so we have to applaud the designer that made their custom American flag jackets into actual straitjackets for their pending Eurovision bid. We bet long suffering Liam McKenna had something to do with it...

21.02.12 Bigger. Fatter. Gypsyer...
The Brits probably ask themselves everyday: "what did the Irish ever do for us?" Sure we gave them The Beatles, Morrissey, Oasis, Father Ted, Oscar Wilde, Dermot O'Leary, Terry Wogan, and of course Jedward. But our real contribution to modern British popular culture has to be the TV friendly Irish Traveller community...

20.02.12 What's All The Hoo-Hah About?
Holy momma there was a serious kerfuffle of schnappers down at The Savoy last night. Yup. Some feller called Alan Pistachio or something was in town with his hot bird giving it all that on the red carpet and launching his movie Wilde Salome. Still, top bloke, whoever he may be...

19.02.12 Our Jamie's A Bear Of A Man...
Skinny jeans, plaid shirts, and bow ties at the ready hipsters for there's a new in-place on South William Street to get your eat on and your drink on. It's called Bear and our very own Jamie Heaslip is a partner in Dublin's latest right-on-trend eatery...

17.02.12 Holy Flipping Scherzinger...
Really good news guys, former Pussy Cat Doll Nicole Scherzinger was in dear old Dublin town last night. Bad news guys, she's was with her F1 fella Lewis Hamilton. Damn. We really thought we'd have a shot... Although, in consolation our Nicole did play a stomper gig at The Olympia...

16.02.12 UCD Students Do The Fashion...
The annual UCD Fashion Show is an event we always like to keep our eye on folks. Sure, isn't it the place we first spotted Rosanna Davison wearing nowt but gold nipple tassels back in 2003... Last night we attended UCD Key Capital Semi-Finals in Cafe En Seine so we did...

13.02.12 Heaton & Holly Do Tubs...
With the abundance of star power around the city last weekend with the IFTAS on and wotnot, we had rather high expectations for The Late Late Show's guestlist. Saying that we had Michelle Heaton, Holly Carpenter, Geraldine O'Callaghan, and Aslan chatting to Tubs. See folks? They totally pulled-it outta the bag once again...

13.02.12 The IFTAS. The Gunas. Oh My...
Twas a fashion fare at The Convention Centre last Saturday night what with the IFTA Awards rolling into town. There were some frocky horror sights, some pleasant surprises, some pregnant bellys, and of course Ruth Negga who managed to run-away with the most stylish outfit without going down the dreaded Debs dress route...

07.02.12 Spring '12 Will Be Bright & Bold...
The rest of Europe may be neck-deep in snow but over here in wee Eire, we may be smashed, but at least we've got the good weather. Yup. The fashion setters were out yesterday showing their wares for Spring 2012 – apparently it's gonna be bright and bold folks...

05.02.12 You A Salpa Or A Hannigan Man?
We caught up with two of Ireland's hottest ladies at the weekend, depending on your taste, at The Saturday Night Show. Yup. Model extraordinaire Georgia Salpa & superduper singer Lisa Hannigan. But dear reader, which one is your preferred cup o' darjeeling...

02.02.12 Yo! It's JDIFF Baby. Word...
Now, we didn't see the invites to the 10th Jameson Dublin International Film Festival launch at The Lighthouse last night, but we're pretty sure the dress code wasn't stated as homegirl chic... Hey Emma Waldron! the Eighties just called, they want MC Hammer's trousers back...

01.02.12 It's Rosanna Mark II...
We've heard reports in the Oirish meeja that our very own lovely Rosanna Davison has only gone and got her kit offski for Playboy. Like, all of it! Now, we're not gonna condone that sort of nudie thing, but it seems the whole experience has put a new wee spring in the step of the former Miss World...

31.01.12 Ladies Night For Dandys...
The age-old conundrum was posed: What Do Women Want? Well, according to fashionable female Holly White it's most definitely skinny cocktails, low carb nibbles, angel card readings, eyelashes, and Rozanna Purcell on the decks. Yup, it's Ladies Night Lite every Thursday night at Dandelion...

30.01.12 Tallafornians Above All...
Yup. With a big Georgia Salpa shaped hole in the red tops the poor aul papers are stuck for a bit o' totty to brighten up their pages. Luckily the TV3 Tallafornia posse popped-up at the right time to fill the gap...

29.01.12 They're Calling Them Sassex...
Good people of Ireland - fair play to Georgia Salpa. Sure, she's only over in that London 5 mins and she's already a tabloid favourite. Last week she was literally hanging-out with the paparazzi and hanging-off the arm of The Only Way Is Essex star Joey Essex. Thus, we're gonna go with ‘Sassex’ just in case this one's not a set-up...

27.01.12 Tallafornia Puts The T in TV3...
Love or hate TV3's choice of programming, there's no doubt that Ireland's second fav television station has its eyes on the No.1 spot. As they laid out their Spring Schedule stall The Convention Centre yesterday we even had the likes of Vincent Browne hanging with the Tallafornia tribe...

25.01.12 Our Janet's Got The Juice...
Jeez. Last year's X Factor is already a really distant memory folks - basically all we can remember from it is Gary Barlow, a camp older gentleman in a baseball cap, and a wee Irish gal called Janet Devlin who shudda won the show hands-down. Well, we got the first snaps of her down South yesterday at RTE's Juice show...

24.01.12 Look! A Grown-Up Jedward...
Waaay back when Westlife were probably no more than a twinkle in Louis Walsh's eye and Jedward were still crawling around a lot more than they do now, there was The Carter Twins. Yup. Our Lou-Lou had his first stab at success with a twin based boyband a long time before John and Edward, we spotted Stephen & Tony Carter out at RTE yesterday...

23.01.12 It's Only Feckin' Faye From Steps...
A momentous thing happened recently folks... Steps got back together! Yup. Some said tragedy, others said result. Us? Well we are chuffed, mainly coz we used to really fancy Faye back in the day. Coincidentally, our lovely Faye was on The Daily Show yesterday...

23.01.12 Brogue Seal It At Harrys...
Fair play to Brian McFadden and Vogue Williams for sealing their blossoming romance by bringing it full circle and right back to where they first met. Yup. Brogue celebrated their recent engagement with a wee party for close chums at Harry's Bar last night...

20.01.12 Ladies Luv Da Duuurty Dancin'...
There may be an economic recession going-on folks, but there sure as hell aint no recession in the world of musical theatre. Yup. Sure, Dirty Dancing at The Grand Canal Theatre is selling-out like Patrick Swayze himself was in it, and the ladies are lining-up to see the show... As Peter Griffin would say: Roadhouse...

19.01.12 Now That's A Proper Sparkler...
Okay. So lots of our well known ladies have been getting engaged over the past month or so and thus rocking rather large rocks from their committed intendeds. But then we bumped into Vogue Williams yesterday wearing the feckin' Sugarloaf Mountain on her wedding finger and it put the rest of 'em in the shade. Can love be expressed in diamonds? Seems so...

18.01.12 It's All Gone Haywire...
A sleek movie by the name of 'Haywire' boasts a sleek cast including: Gina Carano, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, and Michael Douglas. Considering it was partially made in Dublin we had high hopes for a celeb-tastic premiere last night. But far better than that, we got two sporty models running in front of the Luas on Middle Abbey Street...

16.01.12 Mel C's Got The Guns...
Move over Jodie Marsh, there's a new buffer sheriff in town. Yup. Yesterday we spotted Melanie Chisholm out at RTE at The Daily Show showing off her gargantuan guns. Forget Sporty Spice, we're renaming her Spartan Spice. Grrrr...

16.01.12 Who Ya Callin' Warhorse?
The big big movie of 2012 thus far seems to be Steven Spielberg's Warhorse, and the good news is it has a few Irish fellas in there such as Liam Cunningham. We were at the Irish Premiere last week where Glenda Gilson wasn't sweating any Ben Frow-esque jibes on the red carpet...

12.01.12 In Thalia We Trust...
Yeah we've been banging-on about newbie model Thalia Heffernan for a while now folks, but with good cause. Being only 16 she's a new breed and thus the future, yet you won’t catch her pointing aimlessly at an inflatable banana in her knickers on Grafton Street. We have a feeling this new crew coming could spell the beginning of the end for our lovely photocall girls...

11.01.12 The Corr's Not For Botox...
The fricken cheek of some people! Suggesting that our Sharon Corr, the hottest Corr, needs to stick some of that Botox stuff into her lovely Irish face at the tender age of 41? We think not. We reckon Shazza's the sexiest woman to ever to, erm, fiddle with a fiddle...

10.01.12 Samantha's Stay Extensions...
Japers. It's mid January and we're still in Christmas panto season. Thus, sexy Samantha Mumba is still on these shores and walking the boards in The Gaiety. So she is. We snapped the one-time singer yesterday as she stocked-up on burgers and hair extensions in-and-abouts the Grafton Street area...

09.01.12 The Dinner Lady's An iModel...
She has a number of strings to her bow, but who wudda thought that model Rozanna Purcell was our top celebrity dinner party thrower? We caught up with the Come Dine With Me star at Today FM yesterday where she seemed to be far more chuffed with her new iPhone than her TV3 TV accolades...

08.01.12 Mrs Keane's A Dazzler...
Our dearest darling Claudine Palmer is back from that LA folks, and all a glow from hanging out with the Beckhams and the like. And just when we thought she couldn't get any more WAGGIER, Mrs Robbie Keane upped the blingometer to the next level...

05.01.12 Rozanna Dines With The Stars...
Usually when they take a standard TV Reality Show and stick 'Celebrity' in front of it, the intense cheek clinching embarrassment ensues. But throw in Rozanna Purcell, Brian Kennedy, George McMahon, Noel Cunningham, and Paul Martin - and you have TV gold. But for ALL the wrong reasons folks...

03.01.12 It's Linda Martin Twittergate...
And there we were thinking WE are the only ones that like to dress-up as Linda Martin and relive her Eurovision win in mirror. Not so folks. Turns-out there are onliners out there actually living AS Linda Martin on Twitter and even going toe-to-toe with the likes of Sinead O'Connor and Georgia Salpa. Virtually the maddest story of 2012 thus far...

02.01.12 2012 The Year Of The Beard...
It sure was a long drawn-out Festive Season folks and now we're smack bang into 2012. And if we're to believe The Mayan Calendar, and we all do, there aint gonna be a 2013. Grand, we love an aul apocalypse. And sure armageddon makes real men like Damien Rice, Glen Hansard, and Bono grow beards...

23.12.11 Georgia Salpa: Miss ShowBiz.ie 2011...
Love her, hate her, or are completely indifferent - there's no denying that 2011 was the year of Georgia Salpa. Yup. As we wind-down for Crimbo, once again it's that time of the year when we tip our hat to ShowBiz.ie's top celeb of the year...

22.12.11 Marry Me Carrie Does Her Bit...
Like the Seoige sisters, Kathryn Thomas, Claire Byrne, Enya, and erm Twink - Caroline Morahan is the typical thinking Irishman's secret bit of fantasy fluff. Sadly, she's dropped the bombshell that she's just got engaged to her fancy fella out in that LA... Sniff. All the best ones are gone...

19.12.11 Georgia's Still A Beauty...
Some of you cynical feckers out there (not us) gave out stink when Georgia Salpa pulled out of the Sleeping Beauty panto at the last minute. Yup. You guys didn't really believe her when she said she felt she couldn't do the role justice. Well, she proved her intentions were actually true last night when she ate humble pie and made an appearance at the opening...

18.12.11 AR Gals Barred & Grilled...
Another weekend folks, another model agency out on the town. This time around it was the Andrea Roche Model Agency bunch giving it socks at The Town Bar & Grill and Krystle. Not too big on quantity, but there's no denying the quality...

15.12.11 Southsiders Stray At Xmas...
They brought us Fade Street, Celebrity Salon, Brian & Pippa Get Married, and the all new Southside Housewives. Yet, they're still walking around streets as free citizens. Irish Law eh? Yup. We're talking about the good people at Straywave Media, they had their glam Christmas bash this week...

15.12.11 They're Calling Them Galuffy...
She's the hot Today FM DJ, he's the edgy GAA superstar with a penchant for hipster chic. Together they're Galuffy. We just know them as Paul Galvin and Louise Duffy, Ireland latest and hottest contemporary couple baby...

13.12.11 Late Late's Gone So Macho...
What with the TV being full of UK celebrity reality talent show thingys, the aul Late Late is a hotbed of I'm An X Factorite Get Me To Essex On Ice types these days. Last weekend we had Sinitta out at RTE fresh from the jungle and showing off her Obama-esque Irish credentials...

12.12.11 Laura Home For A Corona...
Local lass Laura Whitmore has done good folks. She's been the face of MTV over in that London for a while now and just come back from successfully presenting I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! NOW! in Oz. Nice. But her heart's really at home as she's dating The Coronas frontman Danny O'Reilly...

12.12.11 Sharon's New Blonde Ambition...
When Kian Egan & Louis Walsh's ill-fated Wonderland girlband experiment went to the wall not so long ago folks, we thought that'd be the last we'd ever hear from the gals. Not so. Last weekend saw Sharon Condon go mad with the bottle of bleach and relaunch herself as a sexy solo singer...

09.12.11 Salpa Choos To Punt Panto...
First Kilimanjaro got it in the neck, now poor Sleeping Beauty is getting the talk to the hand treatment. Yup. Seems like our Georgia Salpa is far too busy coming and going from that London to keep to her Irish projects. Big question is folks - can Panto come through this epic withdrawal this Christmas?

07.12.11 Liked Mumba's Panto, But Not A Lot...
Former pop princess Samantha Mumba opened her 'Robinson Crusoe & The Caribbean Pirates' Christmas panto at The Gaiety last night folks. Randomly ancient magic man Paul Daniels & the sexiest woman ever Debbie McGee made a miraculous appearance in the foyer...

06.12.11 Moyles Pinching More Of Our Jobs?
What with the huge uproar over the budget and all the political parties ripping each other apart we fear the those in power have taken their eye off the ball and missed the real cause of Ireland's woes... Daniella Moyles. Yup. Just like Southpark's Goobacks, she's taking our jobs...

05.12.11 Bestie Back For Salpa Mark II?
Lo and behold who should turn-up at the Fade Street 2nd series launch party at the weekend? Only Calum Best! Well, the last time he hung-out with that crew he ended up hooking Georgia Salpa, the bookings flew in, and the rest is history... Wonder who he had his eye on this time?

04.12.11 Assets Kick Off The Model Party Season...
Christmas really is just around the corner folks. We can always feel it in the air after the first of the many many many model parties kick-off the Season. As per usual Assets got theirs out of the way first with a big bash at Bucks begorrah...

02.12.11 Katie Brings Christmas To Laras...
Ah we're full of Christmas cheer and nonsense now that Katie Price kicked off the Yuletide Season, which is tradition in these here parts. Like, imagine Crimbo without Jordan's massive bean-bags? Well folks, it all happened at Lara's Boutique on Dame Lane last night...

30.11.11 Jeez Moyles, Take A Night Off...
Just look at those lime-ing eyes! Yup. We've finally got to the source of Ireland's expanding joblessness. Yer wan Daniella Moyles has taken ALL the feckin' available employment. What's that, you say? Well she was at it again, hosting The IMTV (Irish Music Television) Awards 2011 last night...

29.11.11 The Brunker Gets Her Gav On...
That old Virgin Prune Gavin Friday hasn't lost it just yet folks. not a bit of it. He drew a wee bit of a celebrity crowd last night when he performed at The Olympia Theatre. Even that wan Amanda Brunker impressed us with her bowler hat & black rimmed glasses combo...

28.11.11 Holly's Fit For A Lie Down...
Such is the glamorous life of Miss Ireland 2011 Holly Carpenter folks - when she wants to go for a wee power nap four burly bare-chested men are constantly on hand just to carry her around like Cleopatra. Well, least we think that’s what was going on at the Fitwest Charity Calendar launch in Bojangles last weekend...

27.11.11 The Pink's Moyles Ahead...
Oi oi oi. More news over at The Pink Supperclub folks. Not content with having hot Carol Byrne as manager they've only gone and hired model / TV presenter / mountaineer Daniella Moyles as the new hostess...

24.11.11 Sarah Doting At Tommy Show...
Brand new model Mum Sarah McGovern was out show-off her bounce-back genes and her bouncing baby boy Jude at the Tommy Hilfiger show on Grafton Street last night. The place was full of hot leggy models but wee Jude stole the show...

24.11.11 Hey Lads, Fancy A Nad Holliday?
Jeez it's been a fierce long while since snapped Georgia Salpa's one time BFF Nadia Forde doing a bit of the aul modelling. But it was worth the wait folks coz she hooked-up with Latvian hottie Eva Ward yesterday at Brown Thomas and launched the Mimi Holliday pop-up lingerie boutique in store...

22.11.11 Our Daniella's Got A Bulletin...
Big news folks. There's an Irish model out there with a rare bit of charisma and who doesn't take herself too seriously. Yup. And the result of Daniella Moyles having an actual personality and a TV presence that doesn't make you want to slam your face on a sizzling frying pan, is she now has a show coming out soon on RTE called 'Bulletin TV'...

21.11.11 Rosie Goes On The Pichet...
The results are in folks and Dublin's best restaurant 2012 has been found. This time around Nick Munier's Pichet took The Dubliner Magazine's top honours with Ireland's hottest vegan, Rosanna Davison, at The Radisson Blu Royal hotel to glam-up the proceedings...

21.11.11 No Towie For Our Georgie...
Now that our favourite model Georgia Salpa is over in that London all the time we reckon she's starting to miss ickle old ShowBiz.ie. Yup. She seemed delira to see us out at The Daily Show last week where she denied she's about to join the cast of The Only Way is Essex...

18.11.11 Emma's Grafton In The Lounge...
Statuesque Miss Ireland 2010 Emma Waldron left her ambitions behind of one day wearing that bejewelled-to-bejasus tiara and has got down to some proper hard graft folks. Yup. When not modelling these days she can be found hostessing at The Grafton Lounge...

16.11.11 Ireland Boys & WAGS At Krystle...
Wow. There was a wee bit o' proper celebrating going-on last night after the mighty Ireland boys qualified for Euro 2012 at the Aviva Stadium. Yup. They grabbed all their hot WAGS and hit Krystle with gusto...

15.11.11 Aww But Estonian Girls Are Hot...
Celebrations, celebrations, celebrations. Yup. Rep. of Ireland qualified for Euro 2012 last night with a one-all-draw against Estonia. Despite sleeping through the underwhelming snorefest we kinda felt sad at the end thinking about all those poor hot Estonian girls not travelling to the finals. Sad face...

14.11.11 Kenny, Krystle, Models. Oh Dear...
It was like Ground Hog Day mixed with a shot deja vu last night folks. We had boxer Kenneth Egan over at Krystle with a bevy of models hanging outta him... Again. But wait there, don't call Brendan O'Connor just yet. The Olympian pugilist was there to launch his new book 'Kenny Egan My Story'. Phew...

14.11.11 And Then There Was Childline...
There we were thinking the annual Childline concert was named after the charity but with the weekend just gone we're thinking it's more to do with the age of the pop acts. They be right young! Yup. We covered the Childline gig last weekend and the afterparty at Lillies...

11.11.11 The Pink Sssupper Club 1st...
It's only a mere year in existence and The Pink has been transformed into The Pink Supper Club with a brand new hostess in the form of Carol Byrne fronting up the VIP venue. We were at their 1st birthday bash last night were Rosanna Davison was hanging out with a very slippery operator...

10.11.11 Danny & Mammy But No Whitmore...
Throw away your (crap joke warning) Coors Lite folks because The Coronas have a new album out called 'Closer To You'. Saying that, lead singer Danny O'Reilly couldn't be further away from girlfriend Laura Whitmore but at least he had his mammy Mary Black around for supportive claps & cuddles...

09.11.11 The Glenda's A Cornflake Girl...
Jaysus. It's been a right wee while since we've had The Glenda on the front of ShowBiz.ie folks ever since she's been off all happy and in love with her fella Rob. Still, a girl needs a night out and where better to go than a Tori Amos gig...

08.11.11 Meet The Other Other X Factor Girl...
With all these darn reality tv talent shows on the box it's hard to keep-up folks, never mind remember who just got voted-off or kicked-out five minutes ago. Warhol was wrong, 15 minutes would have been a bloody lifetime to some of these peeps. Anyways, remember that Dubliner Melanie McCabe who only made it as far as her mentor's house on this year's X Factor?

07.11.11 Aww. We're Forecasting Luurve..
We're gonna get soppy here folks, we always cry at weddings. Yup. Everyone's favourite weatherman Martin King finally tied the knot with his hot photographer mott Jenny McCarthy at the Killashee House yesterday. Sadly it wasn't as camp as Karl & Alan's affair, butcha can't have everything...

07.11.11 Soon. Westlife. No. More...
The weekend just gone saw the last ever interview with the Westlife lads on The Late Late Show although we doubt it will be the last time Shane, Mark, Nicky & Kian will be on the show individually. The next time Westlife chat with Tubridy we're thinking it will be with a thick juicy slice of McFadden on the side...

03.11.11 Our Emma Loves The Sabre...
It's been a wee while since we snapped Miss Ireland 2010 Emma Waldron folks. Not since she gave up the crown wethinks. So, we were only delira to see her getting down with the cool kidz over at the Maverick Sabre gig at Tripod last week...

02.11.11 The Ryanair Gals Are Baaack...
Lo and behold folks! After all the controversy, court cases, and so so many column inches the smoking hot Ryanair Cabin Crew girls are back with their 2012 Calendar. This time with added Irishness. But before you go and enjoy these shots of air hostesses in bikinis, please note their cheeky chappie boss got his kitt off too...

01.11.11 Our Lottie's A Wee Doll...
We have to say, we're a big fan of Lottie Ryan's ShowBizzy round-up stuff on The Daily Show folks. A wee chip off Gerry's block and much much much less camp than other ShowBiz commentators on some other shows we won’t mention. Ahem. We caught-up with our Lottie hanging-out with a Pussycat Doll out at RTE last week...

01.11.11 Twas A Sexy Samhain 2011...
We don't know what it is about Halloween of late folks, but it just keeps getting sexier and sexier. There was a time when the Celtic festival of Samhain was about guising as ghosts and ghouls, now it's all about putting angel wings with any aul Ann Summers naughty number...

28.10.11 Models On A Mountainous Task...
Minus a Salpa and a Lo-Jo, the 'Catwalk To Kilimanjaro' all model charity challenge team set off to Tanzania this week folks. Yup. And there was only the ShowBiz.ie faithful paps out at the airport to wave off Rozanna Purcell, Lynn Kelly, Emily McKeogh, and Daniella Moyles. We swear we didn't cry...

26.10.11 FSII Wraps With An Effin' Cameo...
Yet again, the show we all love to hate but secretly hate to love, has wrapped-up filming folks. Yup. Fade Street Mark II is coming to a small screen near you for what we think is the very very very last time. But they went-out with a bang as a certain potty mouthed individual made a return at the wrap party...

24.10.11 Our Kamal Pulls A Sheila...
We have to take our hats-off to Mr World For Life Kamal Ibrahim folks. The handsome Limerick lad took his wee award and ran with it like no other before him. Now he's based in that London, last week he brought his new leading lady home to Ireland. Former Miss World Australia Sophie Lavers, no less...

23.10.11 Noel Celebrates Six In Dublin...
Shock! Horror! And other stuff. Yup folks. Manchester City stuffed Manchester United 6-1, at home yesterday. Nice. Such was the sheer joy amongst hardcore City fans that Noel Gallagher almost cracked a smile outside his Dublin hotel... We said almost...

21.10.11 Hotties & Hooters For Haiti...
We don't know how things are going down in stricken Haiti these days folks but we reckon those good Haitian people would be only delira to know that busty Irish babes are raising more than just money for them over in The Grafton Lounge...

20.10.11 Kezza's Back, Again...
We're not quite sure what RTE's preoccupation with car crash reality star Kerry Katona is, but damn, don't they persist? Less than a month after she appeared on The Saturday Night Show she's back over again for The Daily Show. Like, did Brendan O'Connor miss something vital there a few weeks back?

18.10.11 Everybody Do The Love Shuffle...
First we had the Vogue Williams Shuffle, and everyone was doing it. Now folks, we have the Courtney Love Shuffle after she was rather animated during her presentation with an Honorary Patronage from Trinity College's Philosophical Society last night. It's a brand new dance. So do it...

17.10.11 The Salpa & The Widow Love...
There were two really big divas on Brendan O'Connor's Saturday Night Show last weekend folks. And we're not even including Richard Corrigan in that duo. Yup. Our very own gorgeous Georgia Salpa went up against international widow extraordinaire Courtney Love. Poor Tubridy would have been lost in that mix-up...

16.10.11 Christmas Book Season Is Here...
Apparently there are these non electronic things made of paper and filled with printed words combined in such an order that they actually become a complete story. Yup. They're called books and everyone and their sister has one coming out for the Christmas. Exciiiting...

14.10.11 Our Amy In A Threesome?
When we read the headline we just wrote there we were in total shock! Like, how could someone put Amy Huberman and Threesome in the same sentence? She's a National fecking treasure for Bod sake! Still, turns out she was in a Threesome last night and snapped the whole bloody thing...

13.10.11 Kilimanjaro Gals On The Catwalk...
We are well aware that the brave girls heading off on the epic Catwalk to Kilimanjaro trek get some unwarranted shtick on this here webshite as most of 'em are better known for their photocall stuff rather than their fashion runway work. Well folks, here are the Kilimanjaro gals actually ON the Catwalk...

13.10.11 Una Healy Is 30? Nooo...
Okay. So she's pregnant and probably gonna marry that Ben Foden chap real soon, but is The Saturdays leading light Una Healy really 30 years old? Well, even though we're thinking she's way younger than that we still snapped her 30th birthday bash at KOH last weekend...

11.10.11 Forget Red, Cop Rosie in White...
She may be famously known as The Lady in Red, but we reckon our Rosanna Davison sure looks all-right in white. And then some... She was of course expertly illustrating how to properly dress-up the palest of hues at a fancy white party over in that Munich...

10.10.11 With Claudine Cometh Jeggings...
Get ready folks. Jeggings are coming to Ireland in a big way. How do we know? Well, future fashion female Claudine Palmer has been living in that L.A. for the past few months with Posh Spice and Adele, and what did she come back wearing to Ireland last weekend? You got it – fecking jeggings...

09.10.11 Krystle Is Still All White...
The old adage goes: you can't keep a good club down. Well, it doesn't really but we think it still applies. And it's been a good while since we staked-out the VIP step of Krystle but we felt we had to what with it being the Samsung Galaxy S2 White Party and all...

06.10.11 Our Cecelia Hits Thirty...
Bertie's wee baby daughter may look like she's still in her teens but the globally successful author and movie screen writer went 30 last weekend. Yup. With a new tight do Cecelia Ahern got down at Il Segreto with Sir Bono not too far away...

05.10.11 Alan & Karl - Love's Young Dream...
How far ickle old banjo strumming backwater you sure gotta purdy mouth Ireland has come folks. A couple of years back, two gay fellas getting married on The Green would have had the bible bashers out on the streets bashing their bloody bibles like nobody's business. Yup. Alan Hughes & Karl Broderick tied the knot last weekend...

05.10.11 Brian Toasts To Vogue's 25th...
Awww, we fricken miss our wee Vogue Williams folks. Yeah sure we had a few issues with the whole Vogue Shuffle kerfuffle, but we put all that behind us, and now we're BFFs... Still. Her having her 25th Down Under with Brian McFadden made us feel a little bit out in the cold... She hasn't called, emailed, texted. Nothing...

03.10.11 Rosie Is A Proper Rockstar...
Two things we love folks: Irish success stories, lovely Irish ladies, and Irish bashes filled with lovely Irish ladies celebrating Irish success stories. Okay, so that's three things. But who's counting when we have Rosie Davison and some of our fav girls out bigging-up a home-grown fake-tan phenomenon...

02.10.11 Taxi For Aisleyne Horgan Wallace...
We don't know exactly what it is that Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace does, but the girl sure knows how to party. She showed her fellow reality tv stars a thing or two about grabbing a taxi after attending the wedding reception of Alan Hughes & Karl Broderick at The Mansion House last weekend...

29.09.11 The Ginger Bloke Has World's Best Job...
It's official folks. The Ginger Bloke behind the scenes on Fade Street has the best bloody job in the world! Yup. You can keep your Irish President living in the Aras nixer. This lucky fecker gets to stick his hands up the jumpers of hot girls all day long, as a job requirement, AND gets paid for it! Musta got at least 7 A+ grades in his Leaving...

29.09.11 The Sun The Seoige & More...
Okay. So the Universe waited until the end of September to bestow the hottest day of the year on wee Ireland. This, above anything else, proves there is a God and he loves messin' with the Irish. Swine. Another positive is the sun brought a few of our fav gals out onto the streets to mix with the common people...

28.09.11 Oktoberfest. Rosanna Stylee...
While Irish politicians back home are scarily preoccupied with trying to deny potential Presidential candidates their democratic rights, at least someone is over in that Germany reminding our Bavarian overlords that us wee Paddies are worth throwing a few bob and digging out. Yup. Rosanna Does Oktoberfest...

26.09.11 What's Up Louise's Jumper?
As Reality TV stars go, Louise Johnston is our particular cup of Darjeeling. There's a bit o' class about her yet she can throw a duurty look that would stop a bus. Dead. And get this, while filming Fade Street there's a fella whose paying job is to feed a microphone up her jumper. The lucky swine...

26.09.11 Anyone Really Care About Katona?
They've only gone and dusted off reality show queen Kerry Katona yet again folks. Yup. This time with a new do and a tad slimmer than during the infamous Croft years. But even with a starter stint on Brendan O'Connor's couch - does anyone really care anymore??

23.09.11 Drinks Promotion Day Was Epic...
Wow, seems like it was only yesterday. Yup. The world went nuts once again, and all in the name of a certain Irish stout. Something to do with a fella called Arthur Guinness or summit? Eitherway, it's a great excuse for an epic pissup plus we get to snap a few bands and the like. Bigger & more honest than Paddy's Day you say??

23.09.11 Una Could Call Him Arthur...
Our favourite singer from a band named after a day of the week, Una Healy, has been in town for a couple of days. The Tipperary lass is currently with child and seeing as she's totally down with the whole Arthur's Day vibe, we're putting it out there that she WILL name the baby after Mr. Guinness... If it's a boy... Obviously.

20.09.11 The Bolger Babe Is Back...
We've been keeping an aul eye on wee Sarah Bolger ever since 'In America all' those years back. We thought with the sensational Saoirse Ronan around stealing her thunder she'd fade away into the background, but not so. She's back with 'The Moth Diaries' movie and also celebrating the 21,000th camper at Barretstown...

19.09.11 Salpa's A Sucker For A Stud...
Jeepers. Up until a few months ago Ireland's favourite model Georgia Salpa was whiter than white and a complete unknown personal-life-wise. Fast forward to present day and she's just come through a car-crash public relationship with the UK's reputed biggest player badboy and now we see she's even got a stud in her tongue. It's like the transformation of Sandy in Grease or summit...

19.09.11 Up The Bleedin' Aras Dubs...
Hill 16 Tra La La, Hill 16 Tra La La... Yup folks. The aul Dubz did the business yesterday when they beat the foreign Kerry hoards in the All Ireland thingy at Croker. We're not to sure whether it was a game of Cricket or Lawn Bowls but either way every politician looking for a vote and a handshake was at the big game with gusto. Spiffing good show too we hear...

16.09.11 Georgia - It's Back On Folks...
It was the public break-up heard around the world. Yup. Sure was... A beautiful relationship lived-out in the media-eye that caught everyone's attention - then it all came crashing-down there last week with hearts broken all around and not a dry eye in the house. But last night there was a reconciliation folks. Georgia Salpa posed for ShowBiz.ie once again... We're back on... Huzzah!

15.09.11 Rozanna V Hazel - WWIB?
They are two curvy, sexy, and sultry models each capable of being Ireland's top fantasy babe. We snapped 'em both wearing the same gold sparkly cocktail dress at photocalls recently, but the vital question still remains unasked... Who Wore It Best - Rozanna Purcell OR Hazel O'Sullivan?

14.09.11 Irish Model Storm Troopers...
We always knew it took more than good looks alone to make it as an Irish model on the mean streets of Dublin. Not even Hurricane Katia's 130mph winds could stop Aoife Cogan & Blathnaid McKenna from weathering the storm and strutting their stuff with Coast Autumn Winter 2011 Collection...

13.09.11 Rozanna Rocks Pyjama Chic...
You may have thought that the whole wearing pyjamas out in public thing was confined to crazy young wans off on the council estates of Ireland. But not so folks. Now even former Miss Universe Ireland Rozanna Purcell is rocking Pyjama Chic...

12.09.11 Georgia's Fella Up In The Air...
We suppose we don't say it enough folks - but we fricken love Georgia Salpa. She keeps these here pages interesting and opined upon. But the feeling sure as hell isn't mutual. Nah-ah... Still. With all the minor issues we give her, they must pale into vague insignificance when compared to her controversial relationship with notorious ladies man Calum Best and all the media malarkey that throws up...

11.09.11 Rozanna's 21 Barn Dances...
Yee-haw, y'all! Former Miss Universe Ireland and Donald Trump's favourite model like ever, Rozanna Purcell turned 21 last weekend and celebrated her big day with a few fellow foxy cow gals and a wee barn dance at Alfie's Bar on South William Street. As you do...

09.09.11 Ireland's First Ever Supermodel?
In case you didn't already know it folks, there is a huge amount of industry buzz surrounding a fresh faced 16 year old Irish catwalk model by the name of Thalia Heffernan. Yup. She's the real-deal modelwise so no top o' Grafton Street done up all orange in a bikini dating a washed-up celebrity z-lister tabloid regular nonsense here. She's THE one to watch...

07.09.11 It's Ireland V The Universe...
The two new gargantuans of the Irish photocall world (now that Georgia & Vogue are off with their celeb fellas) met on a job yesterday folks. Yup. Right on St Stephen's Green (original!). It was Miss Ireland 2011 V Miss Universe Ireland 2010 - but which one of these hotties is your particular dram of whiskey?

05.09.11 Life's A Picnic For The Ronda...
The whole festival thing has got a bit passe now hasn't it folks? Wellies, tents, mud, rain, and loads of damp people wearing face-paint trying really hard to have a good time listening to bands they've never even heard of... Still, there's always a photo opportunity around the VIP areas with the likes of Glenda Gilson and her fella Rob McNaughton (they reeeally like to be called 'The Ronda') knocking about...

04.09.11 How To Headline The Late Late In 3 Easy Steps...
We have to say folks, The Late Late Show has really reached rock bottom. Like, we can only watch it now in three minute increments before the intense cringing and chronic arse sweating forces a swift channel flick. And sure, if you want top billing these days just go on the web and say some controversial stuff involving Ryan Tubridy, and hey presto, you're on... Crap! We're gonna end up on the fecker next week..

02.09.11 Our Wee Amy Has Range...
Wanna know what has our wee Amy Huberman grinning like the Cheshire Cat folks? Well, she finally found her range this week and God only knows every bloody actor worth their salt needs range darling. We're are of course talking about her new freebie Range Rover Evoque. See what we did there? Genius...

01.09.11 Brogue Bid Us Bondi Voyage...
Like beautiful ships in the night we passed. Yup. ShowBiz.ie and Brogue's love affair was brief, but heck, wasn't it pure eventful and like the stuff of all great love stories? Anyways, Brian & Vogue have headed back Down Under to live the life of Reilly – we just hope they write! Sniff...

30.08.11 Now Nassau Got Some VIPness...
If you think Ireland is gonna just bend-over and take it up the recession recess you have another thing coming folks. Sure we're broke and up to our necks in diiirty debt, but hey, we were well used to that scenario pre celtic tiger and it sure as hell never slowed down our partying. And on that bombshell, welcome to Club Nassau's new VIP Suite...

28.08.11 We're Brewing Up A Storm...
For most of us, memories of the aul 21st birthday probably include a bag of cheap cans and a mucky field. But when your parents are the biggest concert promoters in the land with more celebrity friends than you could shake a big stick at, then it's a total other affair. Meet Miss Storm Desmond...

25.08.11 Ireland's Most Iconic Kiss, Loike Evvver?
It was the iconic kiss heard around the world folks. Yup. That very moment when Brian McFadden and his model mott Vogue Williams finally locked lips in public... One to tell your grandkids about... And of course, we were there to snap that very instant akin, nay even better than, the Marilyn Monroe skirt blowing photograph. History in the making so it was...

23.08.11 Rebecca's Channelling Hilda Ogden...
They didn't quite make it on the X Factor folks and then the all-female four piece became a three piece after their initial quest for fame stalled. Yet, Belle Amie are still around and shooting for the big-time. But what's with Irish gal Rebecca Creighton's fascination with rocking Hilda Ogden Chic? Inquiring minds want to know...

22.08.11 Vogue Loves Us Again. Now For Georgia...
A week is sure a long time in the world of ShowBiz. Only a hand-full of days ago Vogue Williams wanted our blood over the whole 'Everybody Do The Vogue Shuffle' thing. Our bad? Well, it's back on folks, she loves little old ShowBiz.ie again. Now. How the hell are we gonna get forgiveness from The Salpa over 'Lipgate'...

21.08.11 Coppers Got All VIPeed...
Who'd a thunk it folks? Copper Face Jacks has only gone and got all VIP on us. Yup. It's now vying for the Krystle crowd on Harcourt Street. Like, where are all the off-duty Gardas and nurses gonna hang-out and find love now? Surely this, over anything else, indicates the beginning of the end of the recession...

18.08.11 They're Calling Them Vindaloo...
They're TV3's two leading lights and when they came together yesterday at the station's Autumn 2011 Season launch, it was a thing of beauty. We are of course talking about Vincent Browne and Glenda Gilson - together they are Vindaloo...

17.08.11 Hannah's A Devane Top Model...
Awww. Poor Hannah Devane didn't quite make it as Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model (what does yer wan Elle McWhatsherface know anyway?). But all is not lost folks. With an aul bit o' UK telly profile behind her our Hannah has gone way way waaay up in the Irish model ranks...

16.08.11 They're Calling It Lipgate...
You've only gone done it again you naughty ShowBiz.ie commentators. You've only gone and started a National frontpage 'Lipgate' scandal with our own wee Georgia Salpa being the innocent party thrown to those redtop lions. And apparently, all because of a bit of badly applied lippy...

15.08.11 Brogue Want Gay Marriage...
Singer Brian McFadden & his model girlfriend Vogue Williams have finally forgiven ShowBiz.ie our trespasses folks. Least we think they did when the handsome couple happily posed for our snappers at a city centre protest march for gay marriage last weekend...

14.08.11 Holly Is Miss Ireland 2011...
We hate to say we told you so folks but we told you so. Yup. As we stated way back at the beginning of this beauty pageantry quest, Holly Carpenter surely would become and thus became Miss Ireland 2011. A total shoo-in. Now, if only Uncle Gaybo would stick his neck out we'd have a 100% record...

11.08.11 Georgia's Mountainous Task...
Sad news folks. ShowBiz.ie may have to close down for a spell. Yup. Turns-out Georgia Salpa is off to climb Mount Kilimanjaro alongside Daniella Moyles, Lo-Jo (Louise Johnston), and Rozanna Purcell. With that lot away and The Vogue not talking to us, sure there will be feck all else to write about...

11.08.11 Ah Now. Vogue Shows Us The Hand...
Seriously. Graham Linehan couldn't write it into a sitcom folks. We're talking Father Ted meets Absolutely Fabulous. Yup. Vogue Williams showed ShowBiz.ie the hand at photocall she was doing this morning in Liffey Valley! On one level we're totally ashamed, but on three separate other levels we're soo fricken proud of ourselves...

10.08.11 A Lo-Jo & Dani ONLY Fade Street?
It seems our constant lobbying, nay badgering, of RTE over the last few weeks has lead to the return of possibly the best/worst show ever on Irish telly. Yup. We're talking Fade Street Part Deux baby! Worryingly there was only two Faders present at RTE's 2011/2012 Season Launch yesterday...

09.08.11 Everybody Do The Vogue Shuffle...
Love is all around as far as Vogue Williams & Brian McFadden are concerned folks, although our fav Fade Streeter seems to have fallen outta love with wee innocent ickle ShowBiz.ie during her extended Australian sojourn. Saying that, there was a new spring in her step when we spotted the compulsive Tweeters leaving Dakota yesterday...

07.08.11 Lillies & Porterhouse Missuses...
Two for the price of one folks, that's how many new potential Miss Irelands we got last weekend with Liz Dunne crowned Miss Lillies Bordello 2011 and Sarah Corr crowned Miss Porter House Bray 2011. Don't fret if you missed the ceremony, your friendly neighbourhood ShowBiz.ie was there to snap all the bikini action...

06.08.11 Get A Gay In The Aras...
Finally. An Irish political campaign we can get behind proper. Those right-wing bastards ran homosexual Senator David Norris right out of the race, but folks, we can still have a gay Irish President. Yup, yer only man - Gay Byrne! Roll it there Roisin...

04.08.11 Hey! Who Ya Callin' Horsey?
That time of the year once again folks when they schlap bright rosettes on over manicured mares all over at the RDS. They also award horses for jumping over fences... Tish. Boom. Yup. 'Twas was Ladies Day at the Dublin Horse Show 2011...

04.08.11 Huzzah! It's Shamilton Baby...
Our quest to fill these hallowed pages during the notoriously quiet season (we blame Norris) has lead us down this path, advance apologies folks. Thus we've come up with another name for a couple of peeps we recently snapped - model Carl Shabaan and actress Audrey Hamilton. Say hello to Shamilton... Please make it stop...

02.08.11 Get Ready For O'Salty Folks...
Right. No one seems to be buying our Gorganzola topping of genius, thus, we're gonna give it another go... The deep down in the country woman's James Bond aka Daithi O'Se just got engaged to US Rose of Tralee gal Rita Talty. Put 'em together and what do you get folks? O'Salty! Fricken best fricken celeb couple fricken name like fricken ever...

01.08.11 Gorganzola In The Purple...
The Purple One aka formerly the Artist Formerly Known As Prince, now known as Prince again, played Malahide Castle at the weekend folks. And who should show up? Only celeb couple-arama Aoife Cogan & Gordon Darcy aka Gorganzola. Yup. That name has really caught-on in the media...

28.07.11 The Sweet Sweet Smell of Best...
There was a time there if you had of said to a lovely lady, "there's a smell of Calum Best off ya" - you would have got a serious wrap around the jaw. And rightly so. But not any more folks, and no small thanks to our own wee Georgia Salpa... Just breathe that all in...

27.07.11 Why It's Gorgan-zola Baby...
Yeah so we kicked-off the whole Irish celebrity couple name amalgamation thing with Wezanna back in the day. Big deal? Best they've come up with since is Calpa... Lame. Well, we spotted newly engaged Gordon Darcy and Aoife Cogan yesterday and came up with 'Gorgan'. Sprinkle a little cheese on that and we've got 'Gorgan-zola'! Really, we should get paid for this stuff. Golden...

26.07.11 Our Amy's Gone Fishin'...
Whatever the circumstance of her untimely death folks it was a sad day to see the parents and close friends of Amy Winehouse saying goodbye in grief to the truly talented singer in Golders Green yesterday. Ah, maybe she's just gone fishin'...

24.07.11 Andrea Aint No Horrible Boss...
2011 shall forever be known as the year the Model Wars began in Ireland. The gloves are off and the first blow has been dealt as Andrea Roche swiped three more majestic models away from her former agency, Assets. We caught up with Miss AR Models at the Horrible Bosses Premiere last week...

23.07.11 Zombie Chicks Are Kinda Hot...
Now we don't know whether it's our insatiable appetite for human flesh (especially brrrains) or the fact that we snap so many half naked photocall girls covered in inches of badly applied slap, that we find these pics of Zombie chicks so damn attractive folks. Even so, 'twas Dublin Zombie Walk 2011 this weekend...

21.07.11 Our Georgia's GQ Smooth...
Fresh from her big glossy covershoot for GQ Magazine (India) over in that London we snapped Georgia Salpa in Dublin Airport staring at herself in The Mirror... No silly, not the looking-glass, the actual newspaper. Duh...

19.07.11 Aint Our Politicians Gorgeous...
Dr. Botox herself, Danielle Meagher, was down at Leinster House t'other day folks drumming-up some business amongst those peculiar looking and oh so badly dressed Government Ministers of ours. With the likes of Ming the Merciless and yer man with the flatcap, she wasn't short of targets...

19.07.11 ShowBiz Site Lasts Full Year Shocker...
Who wudda thunk it folks? There is another Irish ShowBizzy website out there and they've somehow managed to get over the notoriously difficult first year... Congrats! As we stumble incontinently towards our 12th anniversary (making us the oldest & most detested website in the world) we have to ask ourselves, are they nuts?

17.07.11 Why Hello Miss Stanley...
Krystle was a tad couple-tastic last weekend folks but we were glad to see somehow single Assets babe Tiffany Stanley (least we think she's single?) partying at the venue before she shapes-up and ships-out to Hollywood. Yup. We're losing another one to the big lights...

14.07.11 It's Mustang Sally Rosie...

It may be every girl's nightmare folks but for the first time ever ShowBiz.ie has decided to continue the Miss Ireland 2011 debate by publishing the headshots. And the headshots only... We now know they all look only gorgeous in their fancy gunas, but who gives the best head? Find out here...

13.07.11 Miss Irelandists '11 Revealed...
Right folks. The Miss Ireland 2011 finalists (it's gonna be Holly Carpenter) were revealed to ShowBiz.ie at a special ceremony (well, photocall) at Buck Whaleys last evening.

07.07.11 It's Georgia Salpapped...
Ello, ello, ello. Wot's all this, then? Seems like our ickle paparazzi preoccupation with Georgia Salpa is catching folks. Only the other day another snapper jumped-out and took a volley of pics of our Georgia on the street in white trainers before we could even get a frame off... And there we were thinking we had something special...

06.07.11 Mumba & Her Sparkly Numba...

05.07.11 Just Janet Jackson at GCT...
Uber Pop Royalty Janet Jackson performed at The Grand Canal Theatre last night folks and showed us she still has all the moves in all the right places. That said, there are particular facial expressions she expresses during her performance that eerily scream Michael...

04.07.11 Twas Calpa Minus The Cal...
Poor wee Georgia Salpa got all stood-up and all when her fella for hire Calum Best couldn't make it to a PA at Harrys Bar last Saturday night. Like, don't ya just hate letting clients down when you get booked to go out on a public date with your boyfriend folks? Totally hate that...

03.07.11 The Real Hills In Ireland...

01.07.11 Sultry Salpa Gone Sulky?
Aww we don't know what was up with bustilicious model Georgia Salpa yesterday folks but there was ner a smile for our snapper when we spotted her on South William Street. We reckon she was either missing Calum Best or has just gone too celebrity for meek aul ShowBiz.ie...

We love a bit of the aul gay here at ShowBiz.ie, and what with Dublin being the gayest city in the whole wide world sure we were only delira to be out snapping away at Pride 2011 last weekend.

27.06.11 Kathryn's Back At Krystle...
She's more of the country man's bit of telly crumpet than our bag to be honest folks. Still, our Kathryn Thomas isn't without her sex appeal. We caught up with the Winning Streak stunner at Krystle last weekend where things have got quite coupley of late...

24.06.11 Brollies Out It's Irish Summer...
We don't know who to write the scathing letter of complaint to folks, but when we do, someone's gonna be getting it in the ear over this damp squib of an Irish summer. Still, we spotted the likes of Claudine Palmer and Rumer out and about grinning and bearing it...

20.06.11 Now That's An Irish Model...
Last weekend we got a wee glimpse of the true origins of Irish modelling when the stunning Marie Staunton appeared on the Miriam O'Callaghan Show.

10.06.11 WWIB - Kazza OR Mizza?
We know, we know folks - it's been a good while since the last Who Wore It Best? competition but these darn celeb types have copped-on to our Tom Foolery and don't get caught wearing the same outfit as much.

29.05.11 Rosanna's Flying High...
Former Miss World Rosanna Davison proved she's a scrapper in the courtroom last week folks when she took on Ryanair and won. Long story short, they said something like she was a borderline racialist and she took 'em for 80k. But somehow, we don't think Michael O'Leary's smarting that much...

25.05.11 TriAthlone Ladies Off Again...
Kathryn Thomas and a few other hot celebrity ladies are taking to the bikes, running shoes, and swimming cozzies once again for the triAthlone triathlon event so they are. They launched their big intentions at Lillies last week...

10.05.11 Duffy's New Gnashers...
It seems Boyzone's Keith Duffy has taken a wee trip to the dentist folks as his trademark inverted V chip from the front of his gob is gone. Yup. Our eagle-eyed snappers spotted the oral improvement outside the Late Late Show last Friday... You guessed it... Slow. News. Day.

09.05.11 Fillies & Frocks At Ladies Day...

There's a totally stunning girl on the catwalks of Dublin lately who you might have seen listed merely as "model" under pictures on these here hallowed pages. Why? Cuz our inept marginally sane snappers have been all too shy to ask Adrienne Murphy for her name. Bleedin' eejits. Well folks, we finally got it at the launch of the Lafayette Bar last night...

06.05.11 Martha's Now Tommy's Girl...
It's been a good long while since we've snapped Irish based model Martha Christie folks, but we always jump at the chance whenever the opportunity presents. Sure she's foreign but we love her like she's one of our own, plus she's got proper feckin' model pedigree unlike a few we could mention...

04.05.11 Derv's Miss Whizzer Strips 2011...
We don't know who was Miss Whizzer Whitening Strips 2010 folks but Dervla Louli is certainly Miss Whizzer 2011. Yup. We have another contestant for this year's Miss Universe Ireland and it all went down with gleaming smiles in Vanilla last night...

03.05.11 Burlesque's Back Baby...
In only recent years gone by the whole Burlesque fad was the in-thing folks, subsequently (and after a few socialites asked us to remove their Burlesque-esque photos), all the high-glam high-kicking titty-teasing went away. But last weekend all the feathers and corsets were pulled out of the wardrobe with Burlesque back at Break for the Border...

02.05.11 Vogue & Salpa Club Queens...
Those entrepreneurial photocall gals are branching out folks. Not content with working for a whole hour during the day, they're hitting our top clubs at night and making a few extra quid. With Georgia Salpa as hostess and Vogue Williams on the decks, Buck Whaleys was an emporium of loveliness last weekend...

28.04.11 Marc Jacobs Now Boxing in BTs...
Brown Thomas (Dublin) was a hive of Marc Jacobs activity yesterday folks with Georgia May Jagger launching his 'Fight Like A Girl' bag in the morning and everyone else attending his 'Marc By Marc Jacobs' accessories boutique launch later in the evening... We're Jacobs Cream Crackered...

27.04.11 Rosie Re-Does The Drawin'...
Rosie does the drawin'. Marisa does the writin'. We take the pics... Yup. Rosanna Davison and Marisa Mackle are at it again folks... The two handsome ladies have produced another book, this time 'Lucy Goes To Hollywood' – like, isn't that where Frankie went?

25.04.11 Bucks Throws A Deuce...
Buck Whaleys Townhouse went two at the weekend folks but we could have sworn it's been around much much longer. Darn short-term memory loss... Eitherway, with Michele McGrath working-it out front the celebs and models just love to party in the place...

24.04.11 The Late Late Turns Blue...
What with it being a rather holy weekend of chocolate eggs and all, The Late Late Show was pre-recorded last Thursday folks and went out live-ish on Good Friday night. Jedward's only real Eurovison competition (apart from a propensity for leg injuries) are UK boyband 'Blue' and they were in town to make sure they secure that vital Irish vote...

21.04.11 Stellar Turn-Out For Arthur...
Russell Brand! Katy Perry!! AND Dame Helen Mirren!!! Yup. Absolutely NONE of these famous people turned-out for the Irish Premiere of 'Arthur' at The Screen last night folks... Still. At least we had Tiffany Stanley on the rather small red carpet... 'Twas more of a red mat to be honest...

20.04.11 Georgia's Double F Screening...
Ireland's favourite model of the moment was striking several poses at the premiere screening of Double-F 5 last night. And by that we of course mean 'Fast & Furious 5'... What? Sexy Salpa was also displaying a bit of an aul spare tyre on the red carpet too folks...

19.04.11 Miss Uni Takes The Tiara Out...
We have to take our hats off to newly crowned Miss University 2011 Holly Carpenter's unabashed enthusiasm. Fresh from winning the coveted honour at Dandelion Bar she slipped into her best Daisy Duke hotpants, threw the aul tiara on her head, and hit Lillies Bordello in style...

18.04.11 Sheamus Roars Home To Dublin...
WWE superstar and the current holder of the US Championship belt Sheamus made a flying return home to his native Dublin last weekend to mangle a few bodies up at The O2 Arena then wrap Ryan Tubridy around his little finger on The Late Late Show...

17.04.11 Brian & Bestie Hit Harrys...
Well now wasn't there only a wee bit of a celebtastic shindig in Dublin last Thursday night folks with the launch of Harrys Bar. Even newly single Brian McFadden found a drinking buddy in Calum Best when he unexpectedly showed-up after only getting back into the country a wet day...

15.04.11 A Carpenter Is Our Miss University...
With the help of those Afterdark.ie boys Miss University 2011 was crowned last night in Dandelion Bar. And from the looks of it the NCAD stunner Holly Carpenter has the looks and poise to go all the way to the top of Miss World if she grabs the Miss Ireland tiara along the way...

14.04.11 Faders Styled By 'Celebs'...
In the weird mashed-up world which is Reality TV, RTE and TV3 sorta came together yesterday as the lovely Fade Street gals got their hairstyles re-styled by the old and new stars of Celebrity Salon... Like, Calum Best cutting and Vogue Williams' hair is the kinda TV we could have happily lived without...

14.04.11 Georgia & Best Dodge The Paps...
We had a hit-squad of paps (two drunks tied to a flagpole with cameras) out yesterday to snap the 'celebs' from TV3's upcoming Celebrity Salon folks, and our undercover stake-out paid off as all the contestants from the Reality Show got well papped so they did. All except Georgia Salpa who was rather reluctant to be shot with Calum Best by her side...

13.04.11 The Glenda Primps Then Jogs...
You gotta love Xpose presenter Glenda Gilson folks for the hottie is the consummate professional. When we spotted her with a brand new head of hair extensions and looking all 'because I'm worth it', she was actually en route to sweaty jog and not some poncy social event...

12.04.11 Kearmy Shop In The Sun...
The seasonal unseasonal good weather seems to be bringing celebs out onto our streets en masse folks. Principally we spotted love birds Rob Kearney and Susie Amy out hitting the shops on Grafton Street last Friday afternoon...

10.04.11 Jessie J & The Trinity Brawl...
In between playing The Late Late Show and The Academy, new singing sensation Jessie J went to the ball. The Trinity Ball... Turns out our wee Jess wasn't too impressed with all the drunken studenty carry-on with all the synchronised passing-out and the tsunami waves of vomit flowing down Dame Street. Feckin' students...

08.04.11 George Goes Out On A Lamb...
UK dapper gent George Lamb has been over in Dublin for the past few days getting all the ladies hot under the collar and hanging out with a bevy of Irish models. Like, why can't we be him? He was also Celebrating 125 Years Of Women at Brown Thomas...

06.04.11 It's Name That Photocall...
This one's a toughie folks. Even we don't really get this one and we've read the press release. Today models Daniella Moyles & Jenny Lee Masterson got their pillows out on Grafton Street with Celia Holman Lee looking on... But can you: Name That Photocall???

05.04.11 The 3 Judges of the Apocalypse...
Ever since her wee knee trembler courtesy of Kylie Minogue and promptly transmitted via Twitter, Sile Seoige hasn't been out of the tabloids. Now she's getting all Simon Cowell on our asses and hooking up with Lisa Cannon and Brendan Courtney to judge Best Dressed Lady at the Punchestown Racing Festival...

05.04.11 Drag Queens, Drag Queens, Drag Queens...
We thought it was the VIP Style Awards Mark II, but it was in fact 'Ring Masters Drag Race' heats at The Dragon on Georges Street last weekend. Still - Pippa O'Connor, Brian Dowling, and Virginia Macari were there so we really are just splitting hairs...

03.04.11 Some Irish Model Street Style...
It's the answer to the question everyone on planet Earth is seeking... Outside of bikinis and giant inflatable banana costumes, WHAT DO Irish models actually look like on their downtime? Well folks, we spotted Georgia Salpa, Vogue Williams, Faith Barnett, and Michelle Doherty wearing their everyday civvies last Friday - looking rather similar to your average Joe Schmo...

01.04.11 Dinsmore's Real Style Awards...
Michael O'Doherty had better watch his back folks as his 'Style' Awards now have a competitor with fabulous Faye Dinsmore's Fashion Awards claiming to be "Ireland's Most Influential In Fashion Awards Night". And ner a sign of Lisa Murphy or Katie Price either...

31.03.11 Today's Name That Photocall...
New game folks, exclusively the brain child of ShowBiz.ie. It's called 'Name That Photocall', a bit like Name That Tune except not really at all... Basically we present you with all the pictures from a recent photocall without the press release blurb - all you have to do is guess what it was all about and: Name That Photocall!!!

31.03.11 Our Georgia High Fives Cork...
Who wudda thunk it? There's a whole world of clubs and glamorous gals outside of Dublin. Yup. And it took stalking Georgia Salpa around the countryside to work that little secret out when she ventured to Cork last weekend...

29.03.11 Andrea Scouts DIT Fashion...
Model Agency boss and former Miss Ireland Andrea Roche was roughing-it with the students down at Vicar Street last night folks along with the rather statuesque Sarah McGovern. We reckon our shrewd Rochie was out scouting for Ireland's next top model or at least beauty queen...

28.03.11 Industry Back At Bucks...
Remember that wee Irish pop band fronted by Michele McGrath, Morgan Deane, and Donal Skehan called 'Industry' folks? Two number ones then they went the way of the dinosaur. Well, there was a reunion of sorts at the weekend in Buck Whaleys. Perhaps they’re planning an anniversary tour or something...

27.03.11 Ireland's Our Prince Charming...
God bless Stephen Ireland folks. After endearing himself to the people of this fair land by quitting the National soccer squad, he then endeared himself even more to the fair people of his native Cork with some colourful comments about his hometown. Naturally he turned-up to the VIP Style Awards afterparty wearing a t-shirt with "Prince Charming" scrawled across the front. Naturally...

25.03.11 Price Upstaged At 'Style' Awards...
It's not often Katie Price gets upstaged on the red carpet folks. Not often at all. But then again it's not every day they can put on a 'Style' Awards bash in Dublin and still manage to keep a straight face... All we can say is well done Lisa Murphy for standing practically naked in Shelbourne foyer last night – it sure put Jordan back in her place...

24.03.11 Amy & BOD Press Rewind...
We all know Amy Huberman as Ireland's sweetheart; the girl next door; little miss perfect goody-two-shoes. Turns out folks she has a past. A rather dark and criminal past. Yup. We knew it was all too good to be true...

24.03.11 Tommy's Got Sole Baby...
First there was Brunker's big comfy sofas, then there was that tattooed GAA lad's fashion bible, now we have Tommy Bowe's range of men's fashionable shoes. Is it just us or is there a direct link developing between being in the public eye and an innate skill for contemporary design? We shall investigate...

23.03.11 Kylie Is Better Than Sex...
Or is she? We don't know as we've never actually had sex nor even Kylie for that matter. But it makes for a good headline and is most likely true. Either way, Miss Minogue played The O2 last night with wings for ears and looking very goddess-esque indeedy...

22.03.11 McSavage's Eyes Are Back...
Don't fret dear reader for the best thing to hit Irish screens since Podge & Rodge was actually half decent, The Savage Eye, is coming back. How do we know? you yell. Well, cuz we copped David McSavage out shooting the difficult third series last weekend...

21.03.11 Enrique Packs 'Em In At The O2...
Latin love God Enrique Iglesias returned to Dublin last weekend for a wee gig at The O2 and to be sure to be sure he sure packed the place with swooning ladies from floor to ceiling. Not bad considering we haven't really heard a tune out of him in the charts these past few years...

17.03.11 Cici's Hot In The Kitchen...
The economy, unemployment, and house prices have reverted back over a decade so why not everything else including the Dublin club scene? Well, the naughty Nineties came back to life last night when U2's club 'The Kitchen' relaunched in The Clarence Hotel...

16.03.11 Katie Shines at Killing Bono...
It's been a while since we've seen Irish model & FHM Honey Katie Larmour in Dublin. In fact, not since she was romantically linked with Jonathan Rhys Meyers, have we snapped the Northern Irish stunner. Well folks, looking like a million dollars our Katie was back in the capital last night with nothing on her mind other than Killing Bono...

15.03.11 AMI 2011 & The Bandits...
It was that time of the year again folks. Yup. The gayest and unabashedly gender conflicted (or is it non-conflicted?) night of the year when lads become lasses and lasses become lads. And all of that on top of the Rubber Bandits providing the tunes. We are of course talking about Alternative Miss Ireland 2011...

14.03.11 Emma In Residence At Soiree...
It was a busy night of glam comings and goings at Residence last week with Mick Jagger's progeny Jade Jagger attracting the likes of Miss Ireland Emma Waldron and a few more fantastic females along to check-out something called the '3 Smartphone Soiree'... We only love a soiree or two, so we do...

11.03.11 Dani Hearts ShowBiz.ie...
Our other other other fav Fade Street star Dani Robinson has paid us the ultimate compliment folks. Yup. She only went a shaved a love heart into her head to show us just how much she digs ShowBiz.ie... Can't really blame the piercer from Down Under, we really are that adorable...

10.03.11 Claudine Misses Debenhams Show...
Sadly, ShowBiz.ie's favourite WAG Claudine Palmer couldn't make the Designers at Debenhams fashion show this week folks. But not to worry, we had the current Miss Ireland Emma Waldron there strutting her stuff on the catwalk...

10.03.11 Bucks Girls Go All Robert Palmer On Us...
Buck Whaleys just went even more up-market this week folks when they launched their brand spanking new VIP suite called 'The Parlour'. Better than that, all the hot model hostesses now have uniforms reminiscent of the Robert Palmer Addicted To Love video...

08.03.11 Bieber & Willow Take The O2...
Finally. After days of intense crying, screaming, and hyperventilating Justin Bieber took to the stage at The O2 and all was right with the world. But enough about our snappers... The teen super idol, supported by Will Smith's daughter Willow, delivered a great performance almost audible over the insanely high-pitched screams...

08.03.11 Miriam Gets The Fro Out For Philo...
We're so used to snapping stunning Assets model Miriam Matabaro with long sleek hair and a fringe that could cut through toughened steel, we had to ask the PR person who the hot model was at the launch of the Philip Lynott Exhibition last week. We're only lovin' the fro Mizza...

06.03.11 Bucks Babes Hit Krystle...
For a minute there last week we thought Buck Whaleys' three front door pin-ups Hayley Ryan, Michele McGrath, and Leah O'Reilly had jumped-ship and gone over to the competition. Turns-out Dublin's hottest hostesses were at Krystle to party with The Saturdays...

04.03.11 Hubers Prepped For Kate & Wills...
A rather big day is coming up for Amy Huberman folks as herself and hubbie Brian O'Driscoll will be representing Ireland at Kate and Wills' upcoming Royal wedding... Pressure. We snapped her out shopping yesterday in the city centre wearing big red leather boots and a smile...

03.03.11 Una Swings For Mr. Tayto...
Tipperary lass Una Healy may be dating English rugby lad Ben Foden over in that London, but when she comes home to Ireland The Saturdays singer only has eyes for one man... Mr. Tayto. Yup. He may be cheesy (and oniony) but our Una loves the feckin' bags off him...

01.03.11 Sheen's Dad & Bro Dodge In Dublin...
Whilst Two & A Half Men star Charlie Sheen was going off on one in the USA, getting himself fired from his hit sitcom, and generally being a naughty boy with porn stars and the like - his father Martin Sheen & brother Emilio Estevez were missing out on the chaos here in Dublin, putting on a brave face, and trying to promote their new movie 'The Way'...

28.02.11 Usher OMGs in The O2...

28.02.11 A New Government & Wesanna Back at Krystle... Huzzah!
It's like the final scene in the movie where the guy wakes up and it was all a dream, all that bad stuff never happened and all is right with the world. Well folks, this weekend those Fianna Fail baddies finally got kicked out of office and more importantly our Wesanna rolled-up to Krystle together as a couple. Yup. It was all a dream...

25.02.11 Louise Gives Trinity Fashion...
Fade Street may be gone from our screens (did ya notice?) but the stars from the Irish Hills will never be too far away now that they've all become top Irish models. Well, Assets girls inanyways. Last night our favourite Fader Louise Johnson was on hand to help glam-up the Trinity Fashion Society's very first fashion show, loike, ever...

24.02.11 Aidan Zoolanders in Dublin...
We're huge fans of Irish actor Aidan Gillen here at ShowBiz.ie. Everything from Queer As Folk to The Wire, the Dubliner is a stand-out star of the small screen. But when we asked him to stand for a snap this week - he seemed to be caught between a 'Blue Steel', a 'Magnum', and a 'Le Tigre'...

23.02.11 It's X Factor & It's Live Folks...
The X Factor took over our screens not so long ago, now they are all in town, they are taking over our very souls. Yup. It's been quite a choir keeping up with this lot in Dublin amid the screaming teenage girls and all the security. Last night we were down at the O2 as the Live Tour 2011 kicked off...

22.02.11 The Usual Suspects At The Usual Suspects...
Oscar winner Kevin Spacey aka Keyser Soze was in town last night for a special screening of The Usual Suspects.

21.02.11 Our Amy's Got The Rite Stuff...

17.02.11 All The IFTA Gunas...
It was a rather busy weekend for all of us ShowBiz media types what with the IFTAs going down over at the impressive Conference Centre Dublin. More celebs than you could shake a big stick at, sadly stick shaking was banned this year, what with the recession and all. We were there, as were all the lovely ladies in their sparkly dresses...

16.02.11 Jodie Bucks-Off Bestie...
Dublin model and Buck Whaleys hostess Jodie Wood had a bit of an awkward moment there last weekend when her ex fella (of sorts) Calum Best showed-up at the club to celebrate his 30th birthday. We're glad to say she didn't give him the warmest of welcomes...

15.02.11 Fade Street's Done. Or Is It...
It was the show that divided the Nation. Well not really, you either hated it or like totally hated it. Still it brought Dani, Louise, Cici, and Vogue into our living-rooms. Sadly, Fade Street's last show broadcasted last night while the ladies in question partied at The Grafton Lounge...

14.02.11 Our Suzanne The Bride To Be...
What with it being Valentine’s Day today (no more cards, please) we thought we'd get all lovey-dovey for you old romantics. Last weekend businessman Rob Buckley popped the BIG question to hot Assets model Suzanne McCabe - we caught up with the happy couple celebrating at Krystle...

11.02.11 Frost & Pegg At Paul Prem...
For all you fans of Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead, Christmas just came very early. Yup. On screen comedy duo sensation Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have teamed up once again... with an alien... called Paul...

09.02.11 Smile Lads, Sure You're On ShowBiz.ie...
Is this possibly the saddest picture ever posted on here ShowBiz.ie folks? Well, is it?? Like, we don't know what had Jim Sheridan and Brenda Fricker looking so glum this week at the IFI - the two of them looked sadder than Bagpuss on a wet Monday morning after being notified of an impending Revenue audit. Smile lads, sure you're in the movies for feck sake...

09.02.11 Catwalkers Strut For Furstenberg...
Okay. So we throw the word 'model' around rather loosely on this site from time-to-time, but on the odd occasion folks, we actually bump into a few real ones right here in Dublin. Yesterday our best catwalkers walked-out for Diane Von Furstenberg at Brown Thomas...

08.02.11 Mrs Lineker's Calendar Girls...
Those naughty ladies that make-up the cast of hit stage show 'The Calendar Girls' came to Dublin yesterday and it was dressing gowns and high heels at dawn. Headed up by the likes of Gary Lineker's missus Danielle and scouse babe Jennifer Ellison, the flip-chart babes are now resident at The Grand Canal Theatre for the next few weeks...

07.02.11 Frau Rosie's Back. And Wet...
Poor aul Rosanna Davison folks. Freshly back from her role as the Confectionary Queen of Germany surrounded by A-list celebs and coated in chocolate, her first port of call was Lillies Bordello head-first into a driving gale, icy rain, and beggars lining Grafton Street. No place like home eh?

06.02.11 Another Lizzy Lad Gone...
Sad news for all fans of Thin Lizzy and outstanding rock guitar talent. Axe legend Gary Moore has gone off to meet Phil Lynnott at Dino's Bar & Grill one last time after passing away yesterday in Spain at the age of 58...

04.02.11 Vogue's Got Big Tasty Buns...
Fade Street stunner Vogue Williams (we knew her when she was plain old Wilson) is fast becoming Dublin's most in demand model. Despite not stripping down to her underwear that often, she's fast knocking Georgia Salpa off her busty babe perch. We caught up with VW yesterday with her wee face stuck right into a massive 20lb burger...

03.02.11 The Glenda's Handy Everett Notes...
We all know that Xpose presenter Glenda Gilson is the complete professional when it comes to prepping and interviewing stars on her popular TV3 show. But when actor Rupert Everett came to town this week we copped her handy technique for slyly cuing-up her most cutting questions...

01.02.11 Rosapatra Comin Atcha...
Former Miss World Rosanna Davison took time away from her busy Twittering and headed off to Germany this week to hang-out with the rich and famous at Lambertz Monday Night party. Dressed as Cleopatra, we can only assume her sweet costume was to show solidarity with our up-in-arms Egyptian brothers...

01.02.11 Our Siva Is Most Wanted...
Time for a little bit o’ guy-candy girls. Yup. Our Siva from the Kaneswaren ShowBiz dynasty is going down a storm across the water in 'The Wanted' boyband. Our lad-done-good was back home in Dublin yesterday doing a bit of promo work with the handsome fella five-piece...

30.01.11 Tina Strictly Goes Krystling...
We've no idea what Strictly Come Dancing is all about folks, but the cast / contestants are in town at the moment, dancing like stars that they are at The O2. An ex-Corrier and ex-Eastender hit Krystle's VIP Suite after their Saturday night show last weekend, minus the sequins...

27.01.11 London Calling. Ireland Answers...
ShowBiz Ireland is dead and gone, it's with Gerry & Katy in the grave. Yup. Another weekend, another one of the familiar faces from the Dublin 'scene' heading off to London. For good.

25.01.11 Jim Corr's Withdrawal Method...
Poor Jim Corr can't get a break folks. Apart from the media portraying him as someone who has totally left the reservation over his many radical conspiracy theories, when he went on The Late Late Show last weekend to speak about our economic crisis he got teamed-up with Lord 'Withdraw Madam' Monckton and hit with the old 911 stuff again...

24.01.11 Cici Plays Some Syc Choons...
Fade Street may have got the Gooseberry for Worst TV Show in the Universe loike EVER, but there is no doubt that the leading lights of the sur-reality show are quite in demand of late. We caught up with DJ Cici & Dani from the schticks at The Sycamore last weekend...

21.01.11 The Goosegobs Dished-Out...
With The Meteors gone, VIP types leaving these shores like rats off a sinking ship, and politics becoming the new ShowBiz - there's very little to point a paparazzo's camera at these days. Thus, as depressing as this sounds, the Gooseberries have become the new Premier Award ceremony Ireland has to offer...

20.01.11 Downton Abbey Just Got Beardier...
All you fans of hit ITV period drama Downton Abbey got a little treat this week when its leading man Hugh Bonneville turned-up on the Daily Show out at RTE. Only, not looking his usual sleek and suave self, but rather far more beardier...

19.01.11 Bono Takes World Bank To Tea...
We caught up with our favourite rock superstar last weekend out supping in Dublin folks. Yup. Our boy Bono brought the missus and the Managing Director of the World Bank out for a bite on The Green, as one does, of a Saturday night...

18.01.11 Daithi Shows His Bird The Field...
We are all too well aware that it's a big Irish rural tradition for all you country lads to show your intended your tracts of land when courting. It was in The Quiet Man or something. So it was no wonder that redneck to stars Daithi O'Se brought his USA Rose to see The Field last night... There's another law stronger than the common law. The law of the land...

17.01.11 Mumba's Birthday at Bucks...
Our old friend from yesteryear, way back when, back in the day, and such Samantha Mumba was in town over the weekend to celebrate her 28th birthday with American boyfriend Torray and wee bro Omero. We caught up with sexy Sam and the bunch at Bucks...

14.01.11 The Vogue & Amber Sisterhood...
Fade Street star and Assets model Vogue Williams was out on the town last night with her equally cool monikered sister Amber. Right. We're off to have words with our parents to enquire why we only got your bog-standard names printed on our birth certs instead of Moon Child or Sky Gazer...

12.01.11 O Dear. Cindy's Baaack...
Remember Cindy from Eastenders folks? We do, and she scares the bejasus out of us in a Glenn Close standing at the stove boiling rabbit kinda way. Gulp. Michelle Collins was in Dublin yesterday looking uber fit just short of 50...

11.01.11 Swoon! It's Only JLS Baby...
Those handsome JLS lads sure have some effect on the impressionable adolescent lady folks. At their book signing in Easons at the weekend the poor young-wans were only going all wobbly kneed and keeling over at the mere sight of the X Factor foursome. Scream then faint. Twas Beatlesque...

09.01.11 Eamonn Gets His Jed On...
That Jedward bug is catching folks. Such is the viral nature of this heinous disease that even Dubliners legend Eamonn Campbell has been struck down with it. That said, their Cinderella panto ticket is still by far the hottest in town...

06.01.11 Linda Martin. Walks Dog. Pink Dressing Gown. Temple Bar. What?
As normal is you like, we spotted former Eurovision winner Linda Martin wearing a bright pink dressing gown whilst walking her wee doggie in Temple Bar last night. Okaaay. Well, it's not very often someone out-weirds the eccentric Jedward twins...

03.01.11 New Year. Same Aul Faces...
Did you feel it folks? Well did you?? That overwhelming sense of optimism and hope that the New Year 2011 would bring about a whole other outlook on life and avenues before unexplored would soon blossom forth etcetera? Then you wake up following morning with a banging hangover, no memory of how you got home and why the hell is there an uneaten donor kebab sticking out of your shoe...

29.12.10 Colin Farrell's Krystmas Party...
In days gone by badboy actor Colin Farrell was well accustomed to arriving at nightclubs with two lovely ladies on his arms. But now that he's all reformed and all and has given up the bottle, when he arrived at Krystle this week, the lovely ladies in question were his mum Rita on one arm and sister Claudine on the other...

27.12.10 Bono's Boys Go A Busking...

As we proudly march with chest puffed-out into our 11th glorious year (we’re Ireland's oldest ever website) of papping celebs and having a wee chuckle at their expense, it's time to signout of 2010 and logon to 2011. Mainly because there's feck all else to snap over this bitterly cold & snowy Christmas period...

22.12.10 St Ronan's Celebrity Ward Walk...
Boyzone singer Ronan Keating put his many public troubles behind him and finally faced the Irish press a few days ago when he showed-up at Our Lady's Hospital for the annual 'Celebrity Ward Walk'. Although in all fairness to him, he schhaid notchhing atchh all...

21.12.10 MaBy & The Panto Beast...
Snow storms be damned people. Beauty & The Beast opened at The Tivoli Theatre last night and the place was packed to the rafters. Even X Factor's Mary Byrne turned up and gave an impromptu performance at the panto - and somehow managed to upstage a stage full of Dames...

20.12.10 Rochie's Gals Get All Festive...
Here it is folks, the last in our epic model Christmas party 2010 trilogy. The final instalment: The Andrea Roche Model Agency. Expect to see some of our top models and a few flash motors also...

With a few of their top babes jumping-ship over to Andrea Roche's new model agency, there wasn't as many of the usual faces at the annual Assets Christmas party at Buck Whaleys this year. Still, there seems to be a big rise in fuller-chested females bursting-up through their ranks from the looks of things...

17.12.10 BScene Yuletide Salutations...
The Dublin model agency Christmas party season got off to a good start with BScene's knees-up at The Grafton Lounge last night and perma-tanned Marcus Sweeney as the unofficial guest of honour. We dropped by just as it all kicked-off and hung-out shadily by the mistletoe...

16.12.10 Here Come the Older Ladies...
We're fond of the more mature female here at ShowBiz.ie, we believe the colloquialism is MILF or something? Well, we were spoilt for choice this week what with Anastacia, Lulu, and Heather Small in town for a big gig at The O2...

15.12.10 WTF Has Marco Got On His Head?
Okay. We get he's a big scary knife wielding intimidating chef and all that, but there's no excuse whatsoever for Marco Pierre White wearing what looks like an old potato sack on his head and passing it off as fashion. None. But then again, who's gonna point-out the flippant faux pas to him?

15.12.10 Michelle Wins Apprenticeship...
The final show of TV3's Apprentice went down last night and although we didn't watch any of the episodes per se, the fact that they made the show, we respect that. Anyway, Michelle Massey won the chance to work for Bill Cullen and they all celebrated at Krystle last night...

13.12.10 It's Getting Festive At Krystle...
Ho Ho Ho and a bottle of Champers, it's right feckin’ Christmassy up at Krystle on Harcourt Street these days. Too early you say? Well, we caught up with rosy-cheeked Coronation Street star Nikki Sanderson in a wee Santy hat at the club last weekend...

12.12.10 Fade Street. It's A Wrap...
We have to say, that darn Fade Street show is starting to grow on us folks. Sure, we cringed our way through the first few episodes but now Dani, Louise, Vogue and Cici have kinda become addictive TV. Alas, last weekend the wrap-party went down at The Residence and all indicators point to the Fade Street foray being no more...

10.12.10 Bunny Boiler Close To Ireland...
She was the most feared woman in the world after she made a stew out of Michael Douglas' pet rabbit in Fatal Attraction, now she's here in Ireland filming. We caught up with Glenn Close and the rest of the cast of 'Albert Nobbs' in Dublin yesterday...

09.12.10 Peter Hijacked By Everybody...
Poor Peter Andre folks. As if his life wasn't hard enough having to put-up with his ex Jordan, last night he got hijacked by most of our not-so-eligible celebrity females. Luckily for him he was at a launch of a trainers store, best footwear to have around when a swift legger is required...

08.12.10 Tattoos Are Like So En Vogue...
Need to forget our inept incumbent government who have blindly tied our futile futures firmly to the mast of the good ship IMF? Do you? Well then, follow Fade Streeter Vogue Williams' example and get some ink on your skin this Christmas. Let the needle pain numb your pain...

07.12.10 The Masquerade Ball Minus The Masks...
Keith Duffy's annual Masquerade Ball went down at The Radisson Hotel last weekend except this year no one was wearing masks. We blame the snow and the recession. It was all in aid of Irish Autism Action and we were there covering the arrivals...

06.12.10 All The Fun Of Childline 2010...
Despite all the snow related chaos and wotnot last week, the Cheerios Childline still went ahead at The O2 with the likes of Westlife, Jason Derulo, Jedward, Wonderland, Olly Murs, The Wanted, Shayne Ward, and McFly all popping & locking for the assembled masses...

01.12.10 Aladdin Puts A Big Smile On Rachel's Face...
Despite the driving snow, impassable roads, and deathly underfoot pavements - a celeb crew still turned out for the opening night of the Aladdin panto at The Gaiety last evening. Actress Rachel Kavanagh and her best bud joined the likes of Keith Duffy to see Mikey Graham's theatrical debut...

01.12.10 A Fader Weathers The Storm...
Brrrrr. It'd be cold and grim on the mean recession ravaged streets of snowy Dublin of late dear reader. But that doesn't mean our fav ladies can't rock edgy winter chic. Hell no. Like, Cici Cavanagh from the show we love to hate and Andrea Corr showed us the light through the grey slush yesterday...

28.11.10 It's Kat Von D-ublin...
She's hot, she's American, and she's got tattoos on every conceivable part of her rather sexy body. And yes, we've conceived every part of that body many-a-time. Last weekend Kat Von D left Miami Ink behind in the States and launched her book 'The Tattoo Chronicles' in Dublin. Weather permitting...

25.11.10 Bramy Booked Out For The Night...
Apparently, all you electronicized (and lubricated) folk, weird as this sounds there are these strange bound paper things in the shops full of printed words on pages and they're called books. Yup. Annnd, by the looks of the Irish Book Awards 2010 last night, every fecker and his sister has written one...

25.11.10 The Bleedin' Bang Of Jordan Off Ye...
Ever wanted to smell like Katie Price folks? Well, just close your eyes right now and imagine what it's like to deep breathe in the aroma of Jordan... Are your nostrils now filled with the true stench of glamour? If not don't worry, our Jordo was over in Dublin last week leaving scent trails...

23.11.10 Evanna Watch The Deathly Hallows...
Sadly the epic Harry Potter series of films are drawing to a close (we hear there are books too - who knew?). Good news for all us Muggles (no idea what that means) is that the final flick, 'Harry Potter & Deathly Hallows', is split into two parts – so one more bit to go. We were at Part One's Irish Premiere with the Irish cast members last week...

22.11.10 Keane On Some Gossip Girls?
You said what? Lorraine Keane mixed-up in controversy. Yup. Wee harmless smiley Lorraine Keane has apparently ruffled a few feathers with her former bosses over at TV3 with the publication of her new showbizzzy book 'Working The Red Carpet'. We were there at the launch at The Pink last week...

20.11.10 Bobble Hats Off To Andrea...
It's been a while since we last looked at Corrs singer Andrea Corr and went phwoarrr! But there's something about a hot lady in a woolly bobble hat that gets us all hot and bothered under the beanie. Yup. The Jane Eyre actress dresses-down oh so well...

19.11.10 Robbie Back In The Pink...
Dublinites went old school last night with a new club venture by Robbie Fox and Louis Murray tipping its flamingo hued hat to the days of Pink Elephant & Renards lore. Called 'The Pink' this town has a new place for the beautiful people to hang out...

18.11.10 Modelling Gives You Wiiings...
Twelve. Yes twelve of Ireland's most beautiful women stripped down to their nuddy, grabbed hold of their lovely breasticles, looked innocently towards the lens, got all black and white, and had big wings photoshopped onto their sleek backs. For charity. Yup. We're talking about the 'Models For Moldova' calendar launch at Bucks last night...

17.11.10 Belle Amie Banged-Up In The George...
X Factor's only girlband 'Belle Amie' made their way to dear old Dublin this week to get down with all the lovely gays at The George. Headed up by wee Irish lass Rebecca Creighton, the X Factor drop-outs impressed all with their live vocals and dance moves. Faaaaabulous...

16.11.10 Models 4 Big Boys 2010...
Toys 4 Big Boys vroomed back into The RDS again last weekend with all that high powered turboness on wheels that apparently us lads love. Of course, the place was filled with busty fair maidens flinging themselves across the bonnets of flash motors akimbo. Now that type of thing we can dig...

16.11.10 Oh Yeah. GlenRo In Da Bag...
It takes us a while to get it going folks, but after a few doses of Bizagra, we always get up there in the end. Yup. We somehow managed to track down the elusive Glenda Gilson and her fiance boyfriend Rob McNaughton yesterday and snap the cute cameraphobic couple. You said it. GlenRo in da bag...

15.11.10 Roz Is Back & Forever 21...
Our fav Irish model Roz (or is it Rosalind now?) Lipsett is back on Irish soil folks after an extended summer working in New York. She was booked alongside Brit babes Amber Le Bon & Jaime Winstone for the opening of the new 'Forever 21' clothes store last week. Thankfully, this time, there was no hand feeding Rosie Dee chips...

12.11.10 National Crisis Over. It's So Like Vogue Williams...
You can go into your weekend calm, relaxed and chilled folks. For we just got official confirmation officially from an RTE official. Yup. Fade Street uber posh gal Vogue Wilson IS in fact called Vogue Williams. Phew. And hold on to your unscripted scripts, coz there's more...

12.11.10 Ah Come On Now Glenda...
That Glenda Gilson wan is some tease folks. Playing with our weak willed semi mentally functioning snappers so she is. At Jervis Street Shopping Centre last night she was acting all coy and cute around the recent press rumour regarding her new fella Rob popping the question this coming Christmas... Oi Gilson! Quit yer feckin' messing...

11.11.10 Fade Street Finally Here Folks...
RTE's much hyped new un-reality show 'Fade Street' comes to TV screens tonight folks so set phasers to bitch-mode. Why? Cuz everyone is only gonna be hatin' on our Vogue, Lou, Cici, and Dani when they start kicking all of the beloved photocall queens off their hallowed tabloid pages. And they will. We were there at the show's almost late launch last night...

10.11.10 The Lisa Fitz Style Bible Cometh...
Ever wanted to be styled by Lisa Fitzpatrick gals? Well now you can and you don't even have to appear on TV3's Ireland AM. Shhhhudder. All you have to do is go out and buy her new book. Sure, even Rosanna Davison & Glenda Gilson suffered each other's presence to get close to a copy last night...

08.11.10 Liz & Rhydian Are Back Baby...
He was the X Factor 'Jedward' of his day and she was the other other other blonde member of Atomic Kitten. Yup. Rhydian Roberts and Liz McClarnon haven't gone away folks. They're like totally back and about to take on those pesky aliens in War of the Worlds...

08.11.10 Nadine's Insatiable Comeback...
Our favourite wee Doire girl Nadine Coyle has left her family and her Irish Mist behind her in LA and is currently on an aggressive comeback trail insisting all-the-way she's still bezzie buddies with former bandmate Cheryl Cole. Yeah. Right. We caught up with the Girls Aloud gal at the weekend...

05.11.10 Celeb Piggybacking A Go Go At Jervis...
Folks. If you happen to see a passing Brit-celeb be sure to hitch your rusty trailer on to their starry tow-bar. It's the done thing in Dublin you know? Well, one would think so with all of our localites lining-up to be snapped beside Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh at the Jervis Street Shopping Centre last night. Me next. Me next...

03.11.10 Andrea Corr Still Chasing Her Art...
Wee cutie-pie singer now actress Andrea Corr joined a host of stars such as singer Tom Jones, jigger Michael Flatley, and tweeter Jack Dorsey on The Late Late Show last weekend. The Corrs singer was on with Tubs to promote her upcoming stage role in Jane Eyre. Really? Yawn. Just join back up with your siblings and make a new Corrs record already...

02.11.10 Nicky's Twilight Tribute To Dad...
Westlife's Nicky Byrne gathered his Sligonian bandmates, some friends, and his extended family to celebrate the life of his recently deceased father. Last weekend's 'Nikki Byrne Twilight Ball' was hosted by Nicky along with siblings Gillian & Adam, and mother Yvonne...

31.10.10 The Krystleween Party 2010...
Looking far bustier than when we last saw her, Big Brother babe Noirin Kelly (has she had them done?) was amongst the lucky early arrivees at Krystle Nightclub's Halloween Party 2010. Yup. It filled-up so quick that they had to turn many a VIP away from their busy doors last Saturday night. As per usual we had a snapper on the step covering all the spooky shenanigans...

29.10.10 RyBhinn Are Back On Baby...
Better known to our readers as the thinking man's Wesanna, Ryan Tubridy & girlfriend Aoibhinn Ni Shuilleabhain (we're officially calling them 'RyBhinn') chose the official launch of Tubs' new book 'JFK in Ireland' to officially show they are officially a couple once again. It’s official. Coincidence or publicity coup? We're officially staying on the fence...

27.10.10 Dublin Kisses The Hand of Gaga...
Over the past few days the city of Dublin kinda took an early trip to the Halloween party. Yup. We all got dressed-up for a rare visit from royalty. Pop royalty. Well, she's a Lady in anyways. And we even snapped her, well, a little bit of her in anyways...

27.10.10 Exchequer 1st. Spit On Me Dickie...
All you gastronomes (we don't know what that means) out there rejoice. That uber chic boozer that serves fancy deserts on black slate had its first birthday last week. Yup. The Exchequer Bar turned one with the likes of Dickie Rock, Kathryn Thomas and Gordon Darcy on hand...

26.10.10 Idris & The Buck Wireleys Birds...
Genius. We want journalism awards for the headline above. Pulizers 'n' stuff. Like, it took ALL of our collective brain cell to come up with that strip based on the fact that actor Idris Elba from The Wire was at Buck Whaleys last weekend...

25.10.10 Our Cheryl Has The X Factor...
Uber hot X Factor judge Cheryl Cole hit Krystle last Saturday night folks. Erm, well no, actually she didn't really but we thought we'd be only hilarious like FM104 and pretend she did. The only Cheryl there was our very own Cheryl O'Rourke who looks a tweedy bit like the Girls Aloud singer...

22.10.10 Pixie Gets Her Lott At Hairspray...
There is a wee secret chain of stores in Dublin for our local celeb ladies and models that like to fake-it. Now even the likes of UK singer Pixie Lott are coming to town to bond with the outrageously glam outlet. This week we snapped the hit artist and blonde babe Pixie Lott at the 'Hairspray' salon & store on Wicklow Street...

21.10.10 Joanna & Annemaire Fashion Foray...
Designer Joanne Hynes and TV stylist Annmarie O'Connor hosted a wee fashion festival in Brown Thomas last week illustrating to the likes of Big Bro babe Caoimhe Guilfoyle and actress Amy Huberman the latest garbs they should be rocking out of an evening...

21.10.10 Attack Of The 50 Foot Aoife...
A meteor smashed into Dublin City yesterday and out popped 50 foot model Aoife Cogan and did a photocall. Duh? Like, that's what 50 foot Aoife Cogans do after being trapped inside an earthbound interstellar object. We are of course joshing folks so stop yer duck-and-covering under the duvet, it was all part of a Jameson ad campaign. Phew...

20.10.10 Dear Rosanna Out With Daddy Dearest...
Hold tight much maligned commrades of the Irish Republic, even the proletariat amongst you - your ails and woes shall be solved anon. For former Beauty Queen now Agony Aunt Rosanna Davison has taken-up with the Evening Herald and is ready to listen, empathise and respond. Roysh? We caught-up with Dear Rosie and her Dad Chris de Burgh at The Late Late Show last weekend...

18.10.10 Sara Kavanagh But By Caprice...
It's been only ages since we last snapped Assets model Sara Kavanagh as she's stepped-away from the photocall scene to set-up a fitness & beauty empire with her hunky fella Alan Byrne. Looking toned and tanned our fav Dublin poser made a comeback at the weekend showcasing the 'By Caprice' lingerie range at Arnotts...

18.10.10 Hardy Bucks Hit The Big Schmoke...
The Hardy Bucks somehow got out of Castletown and made their way up to the big schmoke at the weekend for an appearance on The Saturday Show. The country bhoys even got stamped into the VIP Suite at Krystle, upstaging all the posers and pouters...

15.10.10 That's Doctor Toogood, Mr Bond...
When it comes to model names Laura Toogood's moniker is, well, too good. And now she's about to become a proper Doctor, after handing-in her PhD thesis this week, she'll soon be Doctor Toogood (fingers crossed). James Bond creator Ian Fleming couldn't have labelled her better...

15.10.10 It's Fade Street Part Deux...
Fade Street are like buses folks. You wait ages for one to roll around, then like 20 come at once. Yup. You guessed it. We snapped the undercover RTE production shooting for a second time in as many days - this time Cici & Dani (household names at this stage) hit Krystle with a bunch of the other fabulous Faders...

14.10.10 Barry’s Pho20graphy at B20wn T20mas...
With all the events we cover week-in-week-out we tend to miss-out on the ickle details like what these well attended jollies are actually about 'n' stuff. Take photographer Barry McCall's 'Pho20graphy' book launch party at Brown Thomas recently - we have no fricken idear why the celeb snapper spelt the word photography that way. Although, we are a tad on the slow side...

13.10.10 Fade Street Comes Over The Hills...
RTE is about to be, loike, totally down with the cool kids folks. They've only gone and swiped the hit format of MTV's The Hills, applied it to Dublin-ites with liberal measures of gusto, and come-up with 'Fade Street'. Confused? Well so are we. But we managed to track them down as they filmed scenes in Temple Bar yesterday with two of the F.S. leading ladies... All in the name of intrepid journalism – us licence payers need to know...

12.10.10 TV Babes To Mount Kilimanjaro...
Phwoar. With a trio of Irish TV babeness in the form of Jenny Buckley, Kathryn Thomas and Sile Seoige heading up a humid mountain in Africa and all sleeping together in a flimsy tent all hot and sweaty an' all - expect this feature to be filled with filthy euphemisms and dirty double-entendres. Or not. Let's just see how it goes...

11.10.10 Saturdays Child Una Goes 29...
Twas a busy Saturday night last weekend folks around the clubs 'n' pubs of Dublin. But all the main celeb action went down at Buck Whaleys on Leeson Street where The Saturdays' leading light Una Healy celebrated her 29th birthday with boyfriend Ben Foden and a few others...

08.10.10 Nice Set Of Figs Buuud...
Those pesky Jacobs Fig Rolls Taste Buds somehow escaped from our television sets yesterday and ran amok on Grafton Street. Each one looking like a human-shaped red tickler condom, they happily terrorised a few unsuspecting Irish celebrities as they went about their business...

07.10.10 The Commitments Are Back & They're Proud...
Are they not, well, a bit white for a reunion tour? Seems not folks. That band of North Dublin soul searchers 'The Commitments' are returning from relative obscurity for a 20th Anniversary Tour. Say it once and say it loud Terry, they're back and they're proud...

06.10.10 Suzanna's Looking All Bangled...
The Bangle's front lady Suzanna Hoffs was thee pin-up of the 1980s folks with that perfect mix of hot rock chic combined with movie star good looks. But when we caught-up with her this week all dressed-down with no make-up she was justifiably none-too-keen to be snapped. You're welcome...

03.10.10 Bestie's Bounty of Krystle Babes...
Famous for erm... well-known for ehh... Okay. That lad Calum Best (what does he actually do?) was in Dublin last week for God knows what reason. But being a red-blooded male fond of a leggy lady or two and a late night on the town, the playboy hit Krystle last Thursday and got-down with a bevy of Assets babes...

01.10.10 Halloween Freaky & Fetish Fashions...
Something to whet your whistle for the weekend folks should your whistle need whetting. We made the long haul over to the Wright Venue last night to check out the seriously hot models dolled-up-to-the-nines in saucy Halloween fetish fashions from Ireland's top lingerie and costume boudoirs. All very very impressive BUT we're still dressing up as The Crow...

01.10.10 The Hedonistic Mr. Nice In Town...
Infamous drug smuggler Howard Marks has been immortalised in a movie called 'Mr. Nice' starring that Welsh bhoyo from the valleys Rhys Ifans. We were there at the movie's world premiere in The Savoy Cinema last night, so we were...

29.09.10 Bloodsuckerama At The Tivoli...
Finally. An acting role Leigh Arnold can get her teeth into. Boom. Boom. Yup, the former Clinic babe has knocked the aul Reality TV shows on the head and is back walking the boards at the Tivoli in the Michael Scott adaptation of Dracula. We were there for the opening night... With garlic underpants...

29.09.10 Hubbers Gets Up Off Her Arse...
We fricken love Amy Huberman here at the Show of Biz of the dotness of IE. But we feared she'd turned into one of those vacant smile photocallees after she became Mrs. O'Driscoll a while back. Sure, it almost felt like anywhere there was a camera, so was our Hubbers. BUT, proud hardworking Irish woman that she is, she's bloody back on her tools and doing what she does best - heading up the cast in the Cecelia Ahern adapted movie called 'Three Wise Women'...

28.09.10 Hallo Deutschland, It's Fraulein Davison. Danke...
Right. So we've included ALL of our basic grasp of the German language in the headline above, but there's some method in our madness. For our favourite former Miss World Rosanna Davison was about Grafton Street yesterday looking rite fab with a German TV crew following her about. HAS to be a positive folks, someone has to convince the foreign press that not all people in Ireland look and behave like Brian 'Mr Potato Head' Cowen...

27.09.10 Get The Wright Halloween Fashions...
The Wright Venue is the place to be this Thursday night (Sept. 30th) folks as some of our fav models will get all dressed-up in the sexiest Halloween fashions from Miss Fantasia & HoneyTrap. Personally we kinda like the naughty pirate look. It speaks to us. Argh...

27.09.10 Brian Blows-Out Krystle's 4 Candles...
Top Dublin club Krystle celebrated its fourth birthday at the weekend with a hoard of the Harcourt Street venue's regulars packing out the VIP Suite. Standing room only folks. And that was the spot Ultimate Big Brother winner Brian Dowling celebrated his return to Ireland with a couple o’ gal-pals...

24.09.10 About That Whole Arthur's Day Palaver...
Right. So we weren't exactly behind the social implications of the Arthur's Day Guinness drinks promotion thingy. Why? Well it's basically tantamount to having a Budweiser Wazzup Day. All of Ireland transformed into a bad night-out on Fresher's Week on the back of some marketeer inspired misguided National identity crisis vibe...

23.09.10 Acts Jet-in For Diageo Arthur's Day...
We have to take our hat off to the Diageo markeshhhing genius who came up with the Arthur's Day concept. Like, punters out-there actually believe it's a proper real day that should be globally celebrated 'n' stuff. No. Really... It's nothing but a fricken viral ad campaign folks - but feck it - it's an excuse to get pishhhed and let's face it - us Oirish certainly need those. Hic...

22.09.10 The Town Comes To Dub-a-lin Town...
Ben Affleck's latest movie 'The Town' is breaking the box office over in the US of A at the mo. The superstar actor and all round nice guy brought his wee film to Dublin this week along with his rather hot co-star Rebecca Hall plus many more at The Savoy Cinema...

21.09.10 Lovely Girls To Overthrow United Nations...
There we were snapping away, covering all the guests arriving at The Big Bash in aid of Temple Street Hospital at The Church this week, when gorgeous Samantha Long popped-up wearing a Miss UN Ireland 2010 sash. Ya wha? Yup. Seems as though Ireland's preoccupation with Lovely Girls competitions has gone global folks. 'Bout fricken time too...

21.09.10 Oi, Oi, The Den Just Got Interesting...
Nostalgites take note. Dustin The Turkey has been chucked into a dustbin in Turkey and Socky The Sock Monster has been confined to the back of the smelly sock drawer. Darn him (lite sock joke). Yup. RTE has sexed-up The Den with the likes of bikini clad Katie Van Buren at the helm. What would Forty Coats, Pat's Hat & Dempsey's Den say???

20.09.10 W.W.I.B - Emma OR Rozanna?
Yes. It's another of our infamous Who Wore It Best competitions folks, we're putting Miss Ireland 2010 up against Miss Universe Ireland 2010, Emma Waldron Vs Rozanna Purcell. This time out it's all about fake tan and who had the orangiest arms and hands when they won their tiaras. In true tango tan terms - W.W.I.B?

20.09.10 The Orange Hand Migrates To Miss Ireland...
Japers. You'd think with all the hullabaloo over Rozanna Purcell's 'ronsealed' tannage at the Miss Universe Ireland contest recently that the gals over at the Miss Ireland contest would cop-on and tone it down a tad? Not so folks. Miss Waterford Emma Waldron won the M.I.2010 tiara at the weekend (congrats btw) with those darn orange hands in full-effect. Beauty Queens of Ireland, please step away from the fake bake...

17.09.10 Gav, Gugg & BP Do Trinners Baby...
Bono's bezzie buddy brigade were out in force last night, at the Trinity College Science Gallery of all places. Yup. Gavin Friday, Guggi and BP Fallon were totally down wiv da kidz at 'Biorhythm: Live'...

16.09.10 Rhys Ifans On Geldof's Trail...
Notting Hill actor Rhys Ifans is knocking around Dublin at the moment with the likes of Anna Friel and Bob Hoskins filming the movie Neverland. We spotted the Welsh man having a fag under a Rock 'N' Roll Stroll Trail plaque dedicated to Bob Geldof outside Bewleys yesterday...

15.09.10 Heaslip Plays With The Wire...
If you didn't happen to see The Wire tv show folks, stop whatever it is you're doing right now, and go out and buy the DVD box set. Best investment you’ll make this year. Well, the man that gave Marlo the business acumen to sell 'product', Stringer (real name Idris Elba), was in town yesterday hanging-out playing Halo: Reach with Jamie Heaslip and Co...

14.09.10 Kathryn & Lil Sis At Krys...
RTE's globetrotting babe and all-round top burd Kathryn Thomas likes to let her hair down of a weekend, as do we all. Her fav hotspot for a late booze-up is Krystle on Harcourt Street, and that's where she took her wee sister Linda last weekend...

13.09.10 Pouty Price & The Heaton Party...
Ex Liberty Xer Michelle Heaton and her Irish fella Hugh Hanley celebrated their recent foreign marriage union (as seen in OK!) with a big bash back home in The Wright Venue at the weekend. Everyone looked thrilled for the newlyweds, all that is, except Katie Price aka Jordan, who kept that bored-slash-vacant-slash-devoid-of-human-emotion expression on her cosmetically modified face for her few days in Ireland. Like, smile or something luv...

09.09.10 Mr & Miss World at Miss Ireland...
If you ever needed proof that we're an obsessed country smothered in the perpetual fog of beauty pageants and beauty pageantry, well, here it is folks. Miss Ireland time has rolled around once again and this time we have Rosanna Davison (Miss World '03) & Kamal Ibrahim (Mr World '10) on hand to launch the proceedings and point the way to the much coveted tiara...

08.09.10 Rozanna Turns 20 at The Bordello...
Rozanna Purcell's currently the country's total favourite Rozanna and the media's darling of the month after her success in Miss Universe. And all this before her 20th birthday. Well folks, Rozza turned twenty at the weekend with a big bash with her best buds in Lillies Bordello...

06.09.10 Just Grin And Blair It Tony...
You see folks, people power still works. A mere 300 or so Iraqi War protestors outside Easons last Saturday gave Tony Blair a political black eye and eventually forced him to sensationally cancel his much hyped book tour... Come on! Now, if only we could get the same people passion directed towards those eejits in Leinster House who are hell-bent on steering this wee country closer to the precipice each day just to protect THAT failed bank and a knee-jerk political decision that will in due course bankrupt this Nation...

06.09.10 All The Fun Of The Picnic '10...
Right. This one was a rather busy weekend folks with Tony Blair in causing riots and whatnot and of course the small matter of Electric Picnic bringing the Nation to a halt. We had high hopes after the sun fooled us into a false sense of security on Friday then fecked-off out of the country faster than a former British PM on a book tour...

03.09.10 Rozanna's Back From The Universe...
Just look who we bumped into in Dublin City yesterday folks - none other than the Universe's 7th hottest female, Rozanna Purcell. Yup, our stunning gal is back on home soil after her mammoth Las Vegas venture and looking every inch an international model on the rise...

02.09.10 Rodrea Rock With Axl's Roses...
Ireland's latest and greatest celebrity couple 'Rodrea', aka Rob White & Andrea Roche, hit the O2 last night for the Axl Rose fronted Guns 'n' Roses gig. We have yet to get a full report on the concert but a random text message from inside claims someone had a hissy fit on the stage and apparently the whole show went down the swanny...

01.09.10 Geldof Girls Mourn Grandfather...
Former Boomtown Rat and global humanitarian Bob Geldof brought his imaginatively named daughters Fifi, Peaches, Pixie and Tiger Lily home to his native Dublin yesterday to lay his father and their beloved grandfather Bob Geldof Snr to rest at a ceremony in Glasthule...

31.08.10 Snots The Story With Shane?
Jeezus on a bicycle. It aint quite cold and flu just season yet folks but it seems our Shane MacGowan's head is leaking the green stuff like nobody’s business. We snapped the Irish ledge at the opening night of 'Tic' at the Focus Theatre last night. Someone pass the snot rag...

30.08.10 Lisa's Down With The Krystle Kids...
The slow summer is almost over folks and things are starting to pick up on the ShowBiz front. Ever vigilant we dispatched a snapper to Krystle on Saturday night to grab some shots of Rob Kearney out partying with John O'Shea. Alas, we missed 'em but grabbed a few shots of socialite stylist Lisa Fitzpatrick and a few more...

30.08.10 Andre Band-Aids Jordan Tat...
Singer and (more notably) ex-husband of Jordan, Peter Andre, was in Dublin at the weekend flogging his book 'My World' at Easons. Despite reports that he'd gotten that infamous 'Katie' tattoo lasered off his wedding finger, the Mysterious Girl crooner was sporting a Band-Aid covering up the offending area...

27.08.10 Oi, Oi, Actual Models, in Dublin, Shocker...
Janey Mackers folks, when we sent one of our meek and slightly mouldy snappers along to the Dublin Festival of Fashion launch last night, the last thing we expected to see was actual fashion and proper fashion models at the event. Really? Well, in this town the words 'model' and 'fashion' get bandied around so much they've lost absolutely all meaning. I'm a model and so is my wife (vague Life of Brian reference)...

26.08.10 Twink V Linda: The Showdown...
Zip up yer mickies folks. As Twink strode with purpose into the Grand Canal Theatre the other night dressed in black and wearing her Arnie shades at the opening of Fame The Musical, we thought it was all about to kick-off as her arch rival Linda Martin was right in her line of fire...

25.08.10 Rozanna Is Universe's 7th Best...
Irish Beauty Queen Rozanna Purcell didn't quite win the Miss Universe crown in Las Vegas this week folks but she did get the seventh runner-up spot. Hmmm, 7th hottest female in the entire expanse of the infinite Universe? We'll settle for that...

23.08.10 Morgan's Spiced Up Bucks...
What with it being the summer Shilly-Sheason and all that there aint nowt going-on by the way of ShowBiz. But at least there is no shortage of party peeps out on the town hitting the clubs. We caught up with super hot singer Morgan Deane and chums out at Bucks last weekend...

22.08.10 TV3 Schedule Launch Thingy...
Right. Due to unforeseen circumstances (we were pervin' over Georgia Salpa in a tattoo parlour) we only caught a few hangers-on at the tail-end of the TV3 Autumn 2010 launch last week. Yup. We even missed The Glenda and Bosco. Anyways, here's our slim-pickings for your perusal...

19.08.10 Georgia Pops Her Cherry (Blossom)...
Uber babe Georgia Salpa and a few of her Assets chums vowed to never pose for ShowBiz.ie ever ever ever again, as a few of you wayward commentators were giving them too much shtick. The bleedin' cheek of yis! Well, all that's changed folks. The Georgie wan even stripped down to her black bikini for us today as she got a few Cherry Blossoms inked onto her rather hot (and all natural) bod in Dublin Ink...

19.08.10 The Glenda Finds Scott Pilgrim A Bit Cardboardy...
Even with her honed Xpose interviewing skills, superhuman Glenda Gilson couldn't get a word out of Michael Cera at his 'Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World' premiere at Cineworld this week. We find his geek-chic acting a tad cardboardy too Glenda...

18.08.10 Proof, Shane Hearts Shane...
What an epic night it was in Temple Bar last Sunday folks. The bould Shane MacGowan on stage with Damien Dempsey & Sharon Shannon for the high-kicking wink-and-elbowing Ceili Culture Festival 2010. And if proof were ever needed who Shane really loves, well, his shirt pocket said it all...

17.08.10 Bono Supports His Pal Penn...
It got pretty hectic for us at the weekend just gone folks what with U2 frontman Bono throwing a 50th birthday bash for Hollywood A-lister Sean Penn. We caught-up with the VIP party peeps at Samsara on Friday night where the music and wine flowed into the wee hours...

16.08.10 Noirin's Ultimate Dream Dashed...
The unseasonal good weather brought clubbers out in numbers at the weekend folks, especially up at Krystle’s VIP Suite. Amongst the important peeps was BB babe Noirin Kelly putting on a brave face after her hopes to make the cut on the upcoming Ultimate Big Brother show were apparently dashed...

13.08.10 Sean Penn's Dublin DVD Day...
Did you ever have one of those lazy DVD days folks? The weather is miserable and there's nothing on the telly - all that's left to do is grab a few DVDs, a comfy duvet, and a rather big couch for a day idle fire gazing. Well, we reckon that's what actor Sean Penn did yesterday after we spotted him in Dublin with his kids...

13.08.10 Sile Goes Trad For Trocaire...
The lovely Sile Seoige may be on her way to Newstalk Radio but she certainly has a face for TV like her big sis Grainne. Sure, they’re only gorgeous. We caught-up with SS yesterday on Cows Lane looking decidedly less grungy than her sexy sibling who we snapped wearing a Pearl Jam inspired ensemble in Temple Bar a few weeks back...

12.08.10 Stars Out For Ireland Friendly...
The Irish soccer team returned home to Lansdowne Road (now the Aviva Stadium) last night to take on Argentina and honour Robbie Keane's 100th Ireland International Cap. There was famous folk aplenty at the match and knocking about the City Centre...

10.08.10 Oh Dear, It's Jederella...
Just when you thought it was safe to crawl out from behind the couch those effervescent Grimes twins 'Jedward' are back and looking dominate yet another market with their Duracell-Bunny-esque antics. This time the spiky headed lads are pursuing a Christmas career in panto with Cinderella. O. Yes. They. Are...

09.08.10 W.W.I.B - Jenny Lee OR Anne D?
There's probably over 30 years in age difference between Assets model Jenny Lee Masterson and RTE Newsreader Anne Doyle. But that matters not dear reader when it comes to our infamous W.W.I.B. contests. Both Jenny Lee & Anne Dee recently wore very similar grey waist-tie dresses to separate events - but Who Wore It Best??

09.08.10 Derval The Silver Hurdler...
On principal we usually feature people from Cork on ShowBiz.ie. Well, they don't really like us Dubs and they have those high-pitched annoying accents 'n' stuff. But we take exception in the case of 100m hurdles runner Derval O'Rourke who just won silver at the European Championships...

07.08.10 W.W.I.B - Amy OR Sarah?
It's yet another W.W.I.B. dealio folks. This time up for your esteemed consideration is one-time actress now wife of Brian O'Driscoll, Amy Huberman, versus one-time Miss Ireland now catwalk model, Sarah Morrissey. Both spotted wearing the same gown to this year's Ladies Day at the Dublin Horse Show - but Who Wore It Best??

05.08.10 Lovely Girls Day at The Horse Show...
If there's one thing that defines your modern Irish woman folks, we reckon it has to be their constant insecure and needy preoccupation to be judged solely on their outward appearance and not on how successful or intelligent they may be... Now for something completely different. It was Ladies Day at the Dublin Horse Show yesterday. Huzzah...

03.08.10 A Busy Bank Holiday Weekend...
For those of you who didn't do a legger away to the country (is the Trip to Tipp still going these days?) or head off to foreign climes, there was a lot of activity in Dublin this August bank holiday weekend. Here's the roundup folks...

30.07.10 Caoimhe BBack with BBoyfriend...
Uber chic Big Brother 11 babe Caoimhe Guilfoyle is back on home soil after quitting the bboring BB house. We spotted the Dublin DJ this week out shopping with boyfriend Dave Mulligan, the lucky guy she asked to marry her whilst on the Channel 4 Reality Show...

29.07.10 Bob Geldof & Paula Yates Reunited...
Bob Geldof & Paula Yates and were the big ShowBiz couple of the 80s and well into the 90s. Think Jordan and Peter Andre but with talent. Ultimately, Michael Hutchence infamously got involved and it all ended in death and tragedy. But folks, Bob & Paula were reunited in Dublin this week when Domhnall Gleeson & Lesley-Ann Halvey met-up for the 'When Harvey Met Bob' movie wrap party...

29.07.10 Louis' An M&S Man...
As half of Dublin's social set were over munching popcorn at the Grown-Ups premiere, Pop's svengali with the biggest ging gang goolies, Louis Walsh was on Grafton Street busily grocery shopping at Marks & Spencer. Move over Noemie Lenoir, M&S has a new model...

28.07.10 BrAmy Act Like Grown-Ups...
Tons of Hollywood A-listers were in yesterday folks for the Irish Premiere of 'Grown Ups'. You'd think all media eyes would be on funny guys Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Adam Sandler. Not so. Coy newly Weds Brian O'Driscoll & Amy Huberman (or is it now Amy O'Driscoll?) could have upstaged them all...

27.07.10 Sharon Ni & The Mystery Fella...
She's usurped Anne Doyle in our Six One newsreaderie affections yet fluent Irish blonde Sharon Ni Bheolain (Sharon Boland to our Engerlish speaking readers) has remained a complete enigma to us and the Irish public at large. Her veil slipped a tad last week when we spotted her out in Temple Bar with a mystery fella...

26.07.10 The Wright Venue's Big One...
Things seem to be going very well for Ireland's biggest ever club venture The Wright Venue. Launched in the midst of a rather bleak (to say the least) economic time the super-duper nightspot celebrated its first birthday in style last Saturday night...

23.07.10 Bertie Down With Dublin 'Ladies'...
Christ on a bicycle t'was a busy aul night last night at the new 'Abacus' Oriental Buffet on O'Connell Street. Wall-to-wall lovely ladies with cheeky chappie Bertie Ahern in the midst of it all. Although, when we say 'ladies' we probably should point-out that one of them used to be a fella ella ella ella eh...

23.07.10 Guess What Sarah McG Is Promoting?
We caught-up with striking Irish model Sarah McGovern yesterday folks as she was promoting something rather worldly and important in Fallon & Byrne with RTE broadcaster Miriam O'Callaghan. But from this picture it's kinda hard to work out just what? We're perplexed. Well, that balloon she's holding looks like a backwards five or an upside-down two...

22.07.10 Hot In The City Was A Howl...
The only thing missing from the 'Hot in the City' Summer BBQ launch in Howl at the Moon this week was the actual summer folks. Damn this unpredictable 4 Seasons in one afternoon Irish weather! At least there were a few lanky models around for our squat cave dwelling snappers to shelter under...

22.07.10 Mickey Joe is Brian O's Best Man...
With his newly fixed gnashers a glowin' kids' TV presenter Brian Ormond and his future wife Pippa O'Connor were all smiles at Dicey Reillys last night where Mickey 'I Dropped the Joe' Harte was launching his new single. Turns out the Eurovisoner has been chosen to be Bri's Best Man when the big day finally rolls around...

20.07.10 Pouty Pope Back In Bucks...
It seems UK glamour model come DJ (or is it the other way around?) Lauren Pope has taken up residence in Buck Whaleys of late folks. For the second time in a matter of weeks the cushioned lipped blonde babe spun the decks at the Leeson Street hotspot...

20.07.10 Una & Frankie DJ On Saturdays...
It seems girlband goddesses Una Healy and Franke Sandford have a nice wee sideline gig going folks. When not topping the Pop charts and dancing around with three other babes, they are also available for a spot of deejaying on Saturdays – no doubt bookable for Weddings, Sweet 16s & Bar Mitzvahs... We caught up with the gorgeous gals plus their fine fellas last, you guessed it, Saturday...

19.07.10 Actual Models Spotted Actually Modelling in Dublin...
The words 'Irish model' immediately bring to mind the image of an orange hued 5'4" girl in stacked heels smiling inanely while holding an inflatable oversized mobile phone on Grafton Street clad only in wee bikini and 900 layers of slap. But hold on to your scorn folks coz we actually had a few proper models actually doing the modelling in Dublin last week...

18.07.10 Noirin For Ultimate Big Brother?
From the sounds of murmurs coming from the tabloids our Noirin Kelly might be up for a second bite of Reality TV infamy with the fast approaching Ultimate Big Brother show when a group of past contestants go up against the current batch that we haven't bothered to watch. We caught up with Noirin and a few others at Krystle last weekend...

16.07.10 Cameras Rolling, Dublin Ink Begins...
Ireland just got its own Reality TV tattoo show folks and it began inking away today in Temple Bar. Aptly called 'Dublin Ink' the skin artists chose hot Irish model Hazel O'Sullivan as their first human canvas when those cameras started rolling...

16.07.10 Jedward Flashed By Those Girls...
Thanks to naughty You Tube pranksters Kate Michalak & Laura O'Connell, aka 'That Show With Those Girls', the Jedward twins may now face a new fad of Jedflashing after the female comedy duo got their twins out for the spiky haired lads in Dublin yesterday...

14.07.10 Hunks Out For Inception Premiere...
We usually get a bandy load of over tanned and over exposed Irish burds at movie Premieres in this town, but not so at the 'Inception' VIP screening last night. There was a big load of hunky spunky male actors from TV dramas 'Camelot' & 'Primeval' rolling down the red carpet in The Savoy...

14.07.10 Stars & Tots at Toy Story 3...
It's the 3rd animated outing for Woody, Buzz and the other beloved 'Toy Story' cast members (we like Mr Potato Head, he looks like our Taoiseach). We're already hearing Barbie gets a Ken in this instalment. Yay! We covered the Premiere in the Dundrum Town Centre last weekend...

13.07.10 W.W.I.B - Virginia OR Nadia?
Just when you thought we'd squeezed every drop of fake tan blood out of our controversial Miss Universe Ireland photos folks, they're baaaack! What? These are the pics that just keep on giving. Anyways, actress Virginia Macari and model Nadia Forde wore the same dress to the event in different hues but more importantly WHO WORE IT BEST??

13.07.10 Guess Who in 30 Seconds Or Less...
Can you Guess Who folks? Yup. We had one of Hollywood's biggest heartthrobs in town at the weekend but hidden beneath his ingenious anti-paparazzi extended hood. Clues: Brad Pitt once gave him an awful aul hiding, he comes from a near distant red planet, annnd he calls his impressive new hairdo a "Goldhawk". Come inside and find out...

11.07.10 Orange You Glad Rozanna Won MUI?
A big congrats to Miss Universe Ireland 2010 Rozanna 'With A Zee' Purcell who took the coveted tiara last Friday night at the Wright Venue. We reckon Miss Lillies Bordello will rock the world at the beauty pageant finals in Las Vegas folks, but can somebody PLEASE take away the bottle of fake bake in the meantime...

10.07.10 The Glenda V Rosie Dee: The Showdown....
Awkward. Yup awkward is the only word we can find in our severely limited vocabulary to describe the meeting of arched-eyebrowed rivals Rosanna Davison and Glenda Gilson at the crowning Miss Universe Ireland 2010 in The Wright Venue last night. Talk about a chilly reception, their encounter was colder than a witch's extremities...

09.07.10 When Harvey Met Bob Filming...
The eighties were in full-affect in a certain part of Dublin city yesterday as filming commenced on the new Irish movie 'When Harvey Met Bob' - a production based on the setting up of the iconic Live Aid concert. We caught up with excellent actor Ian Hart in his full 80s regalia...

08.07.10 Snoop No Show at Dublin Party...
The Dogg-Pound was left feeling a little light on the canine front this week, apart from a certain Wolf, when Snoop Dogg was a no-show at his Dublin concert afterparty in Base Bar. At least we had beautiful Big Brother babe Noirin Kelly on hand to keep our snapper busy...

06.07.10 Claudine The Ultimo Irish Woman...
Local girl done well Claudine Palmer (or is it Claudine Keane? We’re never quite sure!) has stepped out from behind her soccer star hubbie Robbie Keane and landed the plum job of being the new face and body of 'Adore Moi by Ultimo' lingerie. We caught-up with her modelling the uber sexy feminine gear on Henry Street yesterday...

05.07.10 Sean To Totally Exit Xpose...
Breaking news folks (we're soo on the ball). TV3 just contacted us to say that their newest member and by no means token male, Sean Munsanje, is to leave the glam show in August after initially winning a 6 month contract on 'Total Xposure'...

05.07.10 Grainne Rocks Grunge Chick Chic...
Newly single Irish presenter Grainne Seoige has been running around England for GMTV of late making a name for herself across the water. But it's not just changes in her personal and professional lives that's grabbing the headlines back home - our pix of the Galway gal grunging-it-up almost brought the whole country to a feckin' standstill...

03.07.10 Dublin's Sinners Sin 'Til Late...

02.07.10 Jedward Eclipse Twilight...
We know, we know - they're annoying as fook but there is no doubt the two Jedward boys liven-up any event they attend and bring out the teenage girls in their thousands. So much so they managed to upstage the epic hype surrounding 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' Premiere screening last night...

01.07.10 It's The Best of Irish 2010...
Last night was The Best of Irish Awards 2010 at the Burlo folks. And being the work-shy fops that we are we only stuck around for a few familiar faces at the arrivals, thus we have no further info for you other than what's contained in this very paragraph. Modern journalism at its apex...

30.06.10 Caprice Launches TV3 Style Wars...
If there were ever a station that needed a serious invasion of style it's defo TV3 folks. Have you ever seen some of the gear they try to pass off as cutting edge fashion on that morning show thingy? Anyways, that may soon be about to change as model Caprice has a new show called 'Style Wars' coming to air..

29.06.10 Amy's In The Loved-Up Club...
With all the recent break-ups of the Celtic Tiger couples isn't it great that there are a few celeb pairings still going from strength-to-strength in good old broke Ireland? We caught-up with Amy Humberman this week as she got in a last minute shopping spree before her looming Wedding to Brian O'Driscoll...

29.06.10 Katy Steals Cheryl's X Factor...
Poor wee Cheryl Cole folks. She was the hot new kid on the block last year when she only had to deal with Dannii Minogue in the X Factor style stakes. But now that Dannii's away they've only gone and rolled-in Russell Brand's chic chick Katy Perry as a sub. We caught up with them both at the Dublin auditions yesterday...

28.06.10 Who IS Rosanna's Neigh-Sayer?
Heads-up models of Ireland. The Rosanna wan has gone off on an online rant accusing a certain female contemporary of spreading a bullying campaign of lies and nonsense against her good self. Using her socially networked pages the alleged bullier has been described as "horse faced" and "shoulders R Us". Welcome to the National scandal we're calling 'Neigh Gate'...

28.06.10 Hot Weekend At Bucks & Krystle...
The heatwave that swept across a Gay Pride celebrating Dublin brought out the lovely ladies in their droves to the City's hot-spots Buck Whaleys & Krystle last weekend. We even had Mr World Kamal Ibrahim out with Miss, ermmm, Dunnes Stores Cabinteely Noirin Kelly...

25.06.10 Debbie Gets A Blondie Portrait...
Only short of 65 years young one of Punk’s founders Debbie Harry still has what it takes to front 'Blondie' as she played to a sold-out Vicar Street this week.

24.06.10 Shrek 3D Comes To Town...
He's big fat and green and rather unpopular with the towns-people, and no, we're not talking about Brian Cowen. We are of course referring to Shrek and he's back for one last time in 3D - we caught-up with all the guests as they arrived at the Irish Premiere last night...

23.06.10 Brand Crowd Surfs at 'Greek' Irish Prem...
We've always known comedian-come-movie-star Russell Brand was a little bit rock 'n' roll but even with our years of experience covering red carpet film premieres we'd yet to see the leading man hopping the barrier and crowd-surfing on teenage girls. That was until last night at the 'Get Him To The Greek' Irish Premiere...

22.06.10 Russell Brand & A Host of Stars in Dublin...
We're always saying celebs are like buses folks, and yesterday our theory was proved right when a bloody big host of 'em came to town all at once. Yup. Everyone from Russell Brand to Eddie Vedder and Green Day to Jonah Hill and Cerys Matthews to James Nesbitt all packed themselves snugly into a single City Centre hotel...

22.06.10 Ireland Was Pink's Funhouse...
Most top gigging artists these days simply fly-in, do the show, kip at the hotel, and fly-out. Job oxo. But not Pink folks. The tattooed American rocker took in the sights and the sounds of Ireland by spending a week here zooming around the countryside on her motorcycle before rocking out at her gig at The RDS last Saturday...

21.06.10 The in Crowd Back in Krystle...
It's been a good while since we had a bumper crop of Reality TV types, WAGS, sports stars, models, socialites, and all the rest at Krystle folks.

Last weekend the club was packed full of familiar faces...

15.06.10 Brazilian Babes Shake-Up World Cup. Finally...
Jeez folks. Could this World Cup be any more bloody boring? We're not exactly soccer experts here at ShowBiz.ie but even we know that all these 1-0 & 1-1 matches are getting a tad monotonous. And don't even get us started on those annoying feckin' Vuvuzela horns. Agggh! Thank Pele for Brazilian soccer and Brazilian soccer babes...

14.06.10 Noirin's Our 2nd Last BBer EVER...
After we snapped last year's Irish Big Brother contestant Noirin Kelly at Krystle last weekend we got to thinking and lamenting folks. You know what? After Dubliner Caoimhe Guilfoyle leaves the BB11 house this year there aint gonna be any more Irish Big Brov-ites. Ever. Again...

14.06.10 Generations Out For McCartney...

14.06.10 Laura Whitmore RoCs Baby...
Bray MTV babe Laura Whitmore was home at the weekend folks, hanging out by a giant poster of herself at The Grafton Lounge.

10.06.10 Irish Gal Caoimhe Guilfoyle in BB11...

Sure there's been Brian Dowling, Ray Shah, Noirin Kelly, Mary the witch, DJ Spiral, Orlaith with the boobies, the lesbian basketballing nun, Seanie from outer space, and probably a few more... Now you can add Caoimhe Guilfoyle to that illustrious list...

10.06.10 Sir Cliff Earnest For Wilde...
Just shy of 70 Sir Cliff Richard is probably the world's oldest teen heartthrob, and considering he was born Harry Roderic Webb in India - the former Shadows' frontman has come a long long way.

09.06.10 Oh Dearie Me it's Rosanna.ie...
She's been a Bebo babe, the face of Facebook, and a Twitter erm twit?

07.06.10 Yvonne Parties With Westlife...
It would seem Yvonne Keating has finally been freed from her media inflicted incarceration at her Malahide mansion ever since her hubbie Ronan was apparently caught playing away.

03.06.10 Keith & Shane Quintessentially Abroad...

03.06.10 Sinead Flips ShowBiz The Bird...
Jesus, Mary, Bono and The Edge - it's a thankless job we do here at ShowBiz.ie folks. There we were covering the U2360 at The Rose Bowl DVD screening last night when singer and, erm, priestess Sinead O'Connor emerged from the Lighthouse Cinema and flipped our wee innocent Mother-Theresa-like snapper the bird! It's okay, it's okay. We've since sent him to intense counselling involving gonad electrodes and waterboarding...

02.06.10 Everyone From Huston To Globetrotters...

28.05.10 Huzzah! Assets Gals Pose For ShowBiz.ie...
We tied several yellow ribbons around several old oak trees, heck, we even slaughtered our best calf (or was it a goat?). But whatever it was we did, it seems Assets Models' top photocall girls are talking to ShowBiz.ie again. Sure they even posed for one of our hunch-backed inept snappers at the Sex & The City 2 Irish Premiere last night. We're back baby...

27.05.10 Pixie Likey Lipsy A Lott...
Isn't just dandy folks when you don't have to travel with a suitcase crammed with clothes and all you have to do is pop into a top clothes shop in the city you are visiting and just select items from your own exclusive range to wear?

23.05.10 Andy Mistimes Tree of Seasons...
The late Stephen Gately has posthumously published a book called 'The Tree of Seasons' - his mourning husband Andy Cowles has surfaced rather early from his deep loss and grief to help get the word out there. Subsequently, he managed to offend the Gately family and insult most of Stevo's Sheriff Street neighbours. We caught up with Andy and several other celebs at The Late Late last weekend...

23.05.10 TVNow 2010 Red Carpet...
Crazy busy sunny weekend folks, 16 of our 24 snappers had to be rushed to A&E with severely sunburnt napes after covering the TVNow Awards Red Carpet at The Mansion House on Saturday evening. But forget the Rosanna V Glenda showdown for it was all over shadowed by two hyperactive spiky headed twins bouncing around the gaff...

21.05.10 The Glenda Set For TVNow..
When we caught up with Xpose gal Glenda Gilson yesterday she had designer shopping bags hanging off every limb as she prepped-up for her TVNOW presenting nixer this weekend. Wonder if she had a set of knuckle-dusters in one of those bags in case Rosie Dee shows-up on the red carpet? Don't mention the war...

19.05.10 Seoige 2.0 Down To BodyByrne...
If you've noticed a more leaner, meaner, streamlined Grainne Seoige of late folks, well we can reveal the secret to the dusky presenter's new fit bod. Yup.

18.05.10 O'Loughlin Rocks 'Merry Men Chic'...
There was an all-Irish Premiere for the 'Robin Hood' movie last night out at Dundrum folks and seeing as Russell Crowe was rather busy in Cannes, the closest thing we got to a Nottingham Forest dweller was Xpose's Aisling O'Loughlin decked out like one of the Merry Men...

18.05.10 Jamie Cullum On The Black Stuff...

17.05.10 Kathryn Rocks 'Irish Summer Chic'...
RTE's golden girl Kathryn Thomas is like the rest of us confused paddies folks - playing Russian Roulette with the rather predictably unpredictable Irish weather. When we caught up with her last week at TodayFM her top half said summer while her bottom half said burrrrr...

17.05.10 The Glenda Rocks 'Hells Angels Chic'...
When we accidentally caught-up with Xpose presenter and top model Glenda Gilson walking down Henry Street this week she was all decked out in leather biker boots, a leather biker jacket, and looking right tough. In fact, she was only short of a growling Harley Davidson (not Davison!) between her long denim clad legs to complete the look. We're calling this vibe 'Hells Angel Chic'...

17.05.10 The Nameless Cathy Davey...
Righteo radio friends. Enough of all that low-brow malarkey and time for some properly talented Irish talent. Yup. We do that type of thing too you know? Well we caught-up sensational singer Cathy Davey at HMV launching 'The Namesless' album last week so we did...

17.05.10 McFadden Does His Daddy Duty...
No matter what your religion, your relationship with the Catholic church or even the proximity of your kids to this country - when it comes to Holy Communion day EVERY Irish father has to be there for his kids.

10.05.10 Apprentice Rocks 'Andy Quirke Birthday Party Chic'...
We caught-up with former TV3 Apprentice star Geraldine O'Callaghan as she entered Krystle's VIP last Saturday night folks wearing a rather ill-conceived ensemble. We’re hoping for a bet! And yes, we're calling this eclectic fashion train-crash 'Andy Quirke Birthday Party Chic'...

07.05.10 Gerard Patrick Ryan Remembered...
It was surely the end of an era yesterday folks as outrageously outrageous DJ & TV Presenter Gerry Ryan was laid to rest. We were there at the Church of St John the Baptist in Clontarf as was the rest of the Irish media, entertainment industry heads, the extended Ryan family, and the many thousands of avid fans of the 'Ryan-Line', which is now sadly closed...

05.05.10 Sile, Suzanne & Jenny Lee Spotted...
The weather may be crap, Gerry Ryan has sadly passed, and the feckin' Icelandic ash cloud is back! But never let it be said that the lovely ladies of Dublin can't put a ray of sparkly sunshine into an otherwise gloomy day. We spotted Sile Seoige, Jenny Lee Masterson, and Suzanne McCabe on our travels yesterday and they all made us smile. Huzzah...

05.05.10 Stock Exchange Snakes & Ladders...
There's a new craze sweeping this recession ridden Nation of ours folks, and like all good Nation sweeping crazes it involves alcohol and, erm, albino snakes. Yup. Now you get to buy your best booze based on the demand for that brand at the gargle Stock Exchange...

04.05.10 Nicola Rocks 'Maggie Thatcher Chic'...
Girls Aloud's token redhead Nicola Roberts was in our town over the weekend to support her pal Cherly Cole (or is it Tweedy?) who was playing the O2 with The Black Eyed Peas. Rocking a middle-aged do we're calling 'Maggie Thatcher Chic' as she left The Fitzwilliam Hotel, we strongly urge someone to drag this misguided singer to a stylist. Quick...

03.05.10 Black Eyed Peas Invade Dublin...
T'was a hectic weekend of dodgin' and weavin' past burly security teams to try and get snaps of The Black Eyed Peas & Cheryl Cole folks - both were in for a few gigs at The O2 and whatnot. Our slime-coated slithery snappers finally got a few frames of The Peas' Fergie in the daylight looking a lot less, erm, Fergilicious than usual...

30.04.10 RIP Gerry Ryan 1956 - 2010...
Sad, sad, sad day folks. One of the most charismatic personalities on Irish radio and television passed-away today only a few weeks short of his 54th birthday. Sure wasn’t it was only four years ago when we covered Gerry Ryan's 50th birthday at Shanahan's on The Green when the outspoken and outrageous broadcaster was surrounded by friends and family, having a proper hoolie...

30.04.10 Rosanna IS The Lady in Red Yellow...
You know what folks? It's like there is a mysterious open electronic network somehow transmitting the words and ideas on these pages out into the worldwide consciousness somehow. For only a few days after we suggested Rosanna Davison wear a yellow dress to the official book launch of 'The Girl in a Yellow Dress' - she only goes and wears a fricken yellow dress to the launch! Coincidence or something far more wwweb-like? You decide...

28.04.10 Douvall Finally Makes P&R...

26.04.10 Its Rosanna Illustrated...
Former Miss World and all-round headline maker Rosanna Davison has ditched her beloved eye-liner pencil and picked-up a HB graded pencil. For Rosie Dee has a bit of an artist trapped inside her clamouring to get out, so she's only gone and illustrated Marisa Mackle's new book 'The Girl in the Yellow Dress'...

26.04.10 Leigh Arnold Dancing Queen...
We don't know what had actress Leigh Arnold in such high spirits outside Lillies at the weekend folks (coz yer man Emmett Scanlan was nowhere to be seen!), but she sure was in the mood for dancin' in her yellow dress. And our Leigh wasn't the only lady out for a party at The Bordello and Buck Whaleys last Friday night...

24.04.10 Hot Weather Means Hot Girls...
Would you Adam & Eve it folks? All this unseasonal hot sunny weather bringing a much needed fresh brightness to our daily mundanities. Huzzah! And with hot weather comes hot gals. On Friday morn alone we spotted the likes of Lorraine Keane, Sara Kavanagh, Michele McGrath, Jenny Lee Masterson, and Kristi Kuudisiim all dressed for the weather...

23.04.10 Glen Hansard 40th at Whelans...
You only go forty Once folks (see what we did there?) so the only thing for it is to gather your best buds, hire out a decent salt-of-the-earth boozer, and howl at the moon 'til the wee hours. Well, that's exactly what Oscar winner (and one-off Simpsons character) Glen Hansard did this week at Whelans... Everybody: "I don't know you but I want you all the more for that..."

22.04.10 Proof: Salpa's Bod Stops Traffic...
If any of you doubting Thomas ShowBiz.ie posters ever needed proof that top photocall model and all-round babe Georgia Salpa has the natural assets required to literally stop traffic then check-out this photo sent in by one of our avid readers. We reckon the last thing the driver said before the crash was: "check out the Grecian Urns on that one"...

21.04.10 The Glenda Does A Gary Lineker...
We've always said that Xpose lot were a feckin' dodgy shower - now we have proof folks! Yup. Our eyes-on-the-street spotted Glenda 'The Artful Dodger' Gilson doing a legger from the TVNow 2010 Awards launch at Krystle yesterday with a big box of Walkers Cheese & Onion Crisps under arm. No kidding. Gary Lineker would have been proud...

21.04.10 Crafty Croft in Temple Bar...

20.04.10 Salpa Is The New Douvall...

18.04.10 A Boozy Birthday at Bucks...
We're really confused folks. And the source of our confusion? Women. Yup, those darn Asketeers keep blowing hot and cold on us - one day posing the next dodging our lenses like we've got the plague or something. But it was all sweetness and light when we caught up with model conspirators Louise Kavanagh, Karena Graham & Co. out celebrating singer Michele McGrath's birthday at Buck Whaleys last Saturday night...

16.04.10 Miss University 2010 Tiaraed...
If Britain is a Nation of shopkeepers then surely Ireland is a Nation of Beauty Pageants, such is our preoccupation with these strange 'Miss' contests. This time around our finest female academics were up on show for Miss University 2010 in Dandelion Bar with Miss IADT Nicola Hughes grabbing the tiara and sash...

15.04.10 Assketeers Still Assin' Around...
It seems the embargo on Assets' top photocall girls (labelled the 'Assketeers' by the ShowBiz.ie faithful) is still firmly in place folks. Yup. Apparently a couple of 'em are banned from posing for our meek and socially excluded snap-force for fear of you sharp witted commentators taking cheap-shots on here. It's like Apartheid only worse. Well, we were on a trip to snap OneRepublic at Lillies this week and along happened Louise Kavanagh & Karena Graham - you guessed it - in no mood for pictures...

14.04.10 Jodie Back Podgen & Rodgen...
Her royal vileness Jodie Marsh was back in town this week showing off her tattoos, muscles, massive bangers, and a couple of unexplained bruises. Classy burd. We caught-up with the once-upon-a-time glamour gal and former Jordan hate figure at The Podge & Rodge Show out at RTE this week...

13.04.10 John Cena-nuff of Sheamus...
It's officially cool to watch wrestling again folks. Yup. Since the glory days reign of Hulk Hogan, Andre The Giant and The Ultimate Warrior professional grappling seemed to become all a bit meh. But now the WWE has a massive ginger headed Dubliner by the name of Sheamus knocking the tripe outta everyone, it has suddenly become very interesting again...

13.04.10 WWIB - Aisling OR Jade?
There aint nutin' worse in the world of ShowBiz than two alpha babes donning the same lovely dress. Well, one of our eagle-eyed commentators (with far too much time on her hands) noted that Xpose gal Aisling O'Loughlin wore the same red guna that actress Jade Yourell wore only months before. THE SHAME! But - Who Wore It Best?

08.04.10 The Dubliner Gets Heralded...
The Dubliner Magazine is on the move again folks. From the capable hands of publisher Trevor White it once-upon-a-time transferred ownership to VIP Mag man Michael O'Doherty. Now MOD has taken the publication off the newsagent's shelf and slipped-it snugly between the pages of The Evening Herald with an aul knees-up at the Guinness Storehouse for good luck...

07.04.10 Sheamus in World's 25 Fittest...

07.04.10 Vanilla Ice & Jedward Easter Eggs...

It's fricken official folks. Irish people are bloody good looking. FACT.

Yup. Only last weekend we had Mr World Kamal Ibrahim AND Miss World Rosanna Davison partying at Lillies Bordello on the same night...

05.04.10 Noirin & Sis Hit Krys...
With all the apparent Easter abstinence (yeah right!) going-on at the weekend Dublin City Centre seemed a little quieter than usual on Saturday night.

01.04.10 The X Factorites Are Back...

30.03.10 Leinster Lads Tackled The Ladies...
A modern day phenomenon of being a professional sports man is the ladies only go feckin' wild for fellas in shorts and knee-length socks so they do...

29.03.10 Kian & His Ladies at Krystle...
We don't know how long it takes to name a new born baby, but if after a year you are still calling your child "you there" or " thingamajig " or "whatsyerbleedinface" – then someone really should call in Child Services. On a completely unrelated issue, Westlife's Kian Egan brought his STILL unnamed Girlband to Krystle at the weekend...

28.03.10 Our Kamal is Mr World 2010...
Move over Rosanna Davison coz Ireland has a new world renowned beauty queen, erm, king. For Limerick lad Kamal Ibrahim won Mr World 2010 in Korea at the weekend confirming what we all knew anyways - that us Irish men are the handsomest on the globe. Fact.

23.03.10 Tess Tells Almost All To Tubridy...
Late Late Show host Ryan Tubridy won the chatshow lottery at the weekend when he landed Vernon Kay's book promoting wife, Tess Daly, as a guest. But we felt as though it was an opportunity lost folks - instead of pushing the issue hard on her hubbie's very public text scandal, Tubs went with his usual bezzie-buddies approach half-retracting half-apologising for the personal nature of his questions. Huh? Come on Ryan, that's not what we pay you for...

22.03.10 Fiddy Fiddly Dees in Dublin...
Badboy rapper 50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson) was most certainly In Da Club last night as he played a sold-out O2 Arena packed to the max. Apparently the reformed gangsta' also hip-hopped his way over to the Wright Venue for a wee bit of exuberant afterpartyness. As one does...

18.03.10 Is The Glenda With The Kershaw?
With all the Glenda & Rosanna & Johnny Ronan madness going on over the past few weeks in de meeja, the epic story has finally gone very quiet of late what with all parties concerned limping away from the front-pager a little worse for wear.

We know the jobless, the artistically frustrated and the downright sick of inept Irish politicians are fleeing these shores in their thousands every day. And who could blame them?

04.03.10 Separated at Birth - Sheamus & Tilda?

24.02.10 No Lady at GaGa Afterparty...
Dublin went totally Lady GaGa last weekend as Miss Poker Face herself played a number of sold-out concerts over at The O2 Arena. And despite her party girl image there was no sign of the controversial US singer at her after-show bash at Lillies Bordello last Sunday night nor any of the nights she was in town.

Who wore it best folks? WHO?? That's the very question on the lips of every single sane person in this darn country today. FACT. For actress Jade Yourell only went and wore the same red dress to the IFTAs that former Miss Worldliness Rosanna Davison wore to an event last summer. The gauntlet's down and a line is drawn in the sand - only ShowBiz.ie commentators (yes, that means YOU!) can solve this conundrum...

22.02.10 The IFTAs Redcarpet 2010...
I know we keep barking-on like some sort of incontinent rabid mutt, but seriously folks, t'was a crazy busy weekend-just-gone in Dublin with tons celebs over for all the award ceremonies and what have you. Here we have a mere selection of peeps who attended the IFTA Awards at the Burlington Hotel last Saturday night with some of them even picking-up golden statues for turning-up being most excellent in their chosen field of film or TV...

21.02.10 Meteor Awards Redcarpet 2010...
Holy freekin crrrap batman. What a car-azy few days it was for us here at ShowBiz.ie with the Jameson International Film Festival, The Meteor Awards, and The IFTAs all coming to town on the same weekend. In fact, we reckon the evil organisers put the three biggest events of the year on concurrent days just to piss us off. Anyroad, here's a selection of guests from the Meteors over at The RDS last Friday night... Now. Is that bed calling?

18.02.10 Farrell's Lady Keeps Him on His Toes...
Reformed badboy and proud Daddy of two Colin Farrell debuted his much anticipated 'Ondine' movie in Dublin's Savoy last night AND his new girlfriend & co-star from the Irish flick, Alicja Bachleda. See The Farreller, his rather hot new Polish squeeze, and all the guests on the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival red carpet last night right here...

18.02.10 Heaton Finally Flips Out...
Our total fav UK celebrity relocated to Ireland, Michelle Heaton, hit the Northside with a frying pan this week when she supported FM104 DJs Jeremy Dixon & Adrian Kennedy as they sat-it-out for 104 hours in Clerys' window. The newly engaged singer also flipped-out with a few punters on O'Connell Street for Pancake Tuesday...

16.02.10 Nadia Forde Has Gone Gaga...
Well stone the crows and call me Sheila. It was double-take central on St Stephen's Green yesterday when our meek-minded weak-kneed snappers spotted what they thought was eccentric world fashion icon and hit singer Lady Gaga. Weirdly, it turned-out to be Ireland's No.1 supremo top bestest model ever Nadia Forde in sunglasses and a wig. What? Easy mistake to make...

16.02.10 Images of Mika at The Olympia...
British singer / songwriter Mika brought his impressive collection of songs to Dublin's Olympia Theatre this week and in true Mika style put on a colourful show. One to remember folks. See the singer in action here...

16.02.10 Skins Stars Party At Twentyone...
Those naughty actors from E4's most excellent 'Skins' series were over in Dublin last weekend hanging-out at the happening Twentyone club. We caught up TV stars Lily Loveless and Merveille Lukeba at the heaving hotspot last Friday night for an aul Guinness or two...

15.02.10 Night For Love & Tatts at UCD...
Romance was surely in the air at the weekend what with it being Valentines and all that (the feckin' postman still hasn't come!). Over at UCD Samuel L Jackson & Keith Duffy hosted a 'Night For Love' in aid of their autism charities where many a star turned out for the posh bash. See all the guests here and a certain blonde bombshell with a new sexy tattoo...

12.02.10 Dublin Babes Line-Out For Ne-Yo...
US R&B super-duper-star Ne-Yo (real name Shaffer Chimere Smith) caused quite a stir in Dublin last night amongst the ladies who like a party and a wee pouty pose. After his massive O2 Arena concert himself and rapper Ryan Leslie made a beeline for Twentyone Club and got-down with this town's emerging female model fraternity. See all the party pics here...

11.02.10 Georgia Exposed For Valentines...
ShowBiz.ie got an early Valentines gift today (hopefully the first of many) when Ireland's busiest model with the best, erm, assets Georgia Salpa stripped-down to her frilly unmentionables for us. Our gorgeous Greek Georgie was doing what she does best to promote all the saucy lingerie gift ideas at Brown Thomas for all the fellas out there who haven't a clue what to buy their beloved on Valentines Day. Click here to see Ireland's sexiest model showing off her their full range...

09.02.10 Soderbergh Films Knockout in Dublin...
The poor aul Grannies and Grandads on Upper Abbey Street didn't know what was going on this week when Steven Soderbergh's 'Knockout' SWAT squad came charging down the Northside boulevard with their semi automatic guns out. Actually, scratch that, they're probably well used to armed Garda running around the place with the state of Dublin these days crowded with gangbanging gangsters and zombie loads of junkies on every corner begging and thieving. A town in an unchecked crime free-fall folks. Sure you can even kill your wife and be out in about 4 years to squander her fortune should the mood take ya...

08.02.10 Darby O'Baldwin & The Oirish People...
Begorrah and b'gosh folks, it aint too hard to spot those florescent green Irish American tourists in Dublin these days - to be sure to be sure. They generally look like they've been dressed exclusively by Carroll's Irish Gift Shop, minus the novelty ginger leprechaun beards - that's standard British stag party attire. Anyways, Bible-bashing Stephen Baldwin was in Dublin last week looking like a proud extra from Disney's Darby O'Gill and the Little People. HOW did we spot him...

08.02.10 The Rugby Crowd Hit Krystle...
What a weekend it was folks for lovers of odd shaped balls what with the Irish rugby team taking the Italians to the cleaners at Croker. Annnyhoo, all the real action happened well after the match when all the rugger dudes from both teams hit celebrity night-spot Krystle to celebrate like only good sportsmen can. See all the pictures here...

05.02.10 Huzzah! McMuntites Are On TV...
It was only a matter of time folks. Nestled and nurtured in the ample bosoms of ShowBiz.ie, Donegal sisters Collette & Christina McBarron are coming to a TV screen near you. Well, maybe not a TV screen per se, more like a TV screen contained within a computer screen. Confused? Well don't be, the sexy sistas were at the launch of Dublin Social TV last night...

03.02.10 Hot Irish Babes Fill The Streets...
Despite teeming rain the streets of Dublin were only awash with Ireland's hottest babes yesterday afternoon - we're talking models, actresses, TV presenters and, erm, models. Check out what Rosanna Davison, Amanda Byram, Leigh Arnold, and Georgia Salpa were up to. Come on, you know you want to...

02.02.10 Rosie Makes A Sweet Marilyn...
It seems our favourite former Miss World Rosanna Davison is taking more than just the biscuit in Germany these days - the spokesmodel for Lambertz is a big hit in the Eurozone fronting their rather exclusive calendar all dolled-up like a snack covered Marilyn Monroe. This week we caught-up with her hanging out with celebs in Cologne and partying like a movie star...

01.02.10 Miss Mills & Del Toro Do Tubs...
The aul Late Late Show was only choc-a-block with stars last weekend folks with Hollywood actor Benicio Del Toro, one-legged skater & former Beatles marrier Heather Mills, and 80s singer Nik Kershaw. Cork's new favourite sons - conjoined twins Hassan & Hussein Benhaffaf - were also there and doted over by a rather broody Ryan Tubridy (Aoibhinn beware). See all the pictures here...

31.01.10 Clubbers Out Clubbing Last Weekend...
There was a mixed bag of boys and babes out clubbing at Lillies Bordello and Krystle nightclubs last weekend with Glenda Gilson now apparently single and Leigh Arnold now apparently taken, of course, we were out there snapping all the goings on. We're a vital Irish institution folks, albeit a really crap one...

28.01.10 Irish Calendar Girls Marked X...
A group of hot Irish model types and photographers gathered together last Christmas in the Morgan Hotel to shoot a knicker-tastic calendar all in the name of charity. The glossy 'X Marks The Spot' calendar highlights a different part of the body per page each month susceptible to the killer disease and attempts to highlight its seriousness to young people. A group of catwalk gals jumped into their lingerie and launched the worthwhile cause at Lillies Bordello last night. See all the photos here and please click on the link at the end of the page to purchase it...

28.01.10 Rosie Dee In Gay Paree...
If these hallowed golden pages of yore seem devoid of glamour and glitz lately folks it's mainly because our talisman, nay our raison d'etre, Rosanna Davison has been off sunning her shapely derriere on the beaches on Mauritius for Christmas and now she's over in France at that Paris Fashion Week. Sacre bleu, aint it well for some...

27.01.10 Sheilas & Australia Day Up Over...
Stone the crows folks, being up-right in the Northern Hemisphere has really gone to the heads (and chests) of Australian Sheilas on the run from that penal colony Down Under. As yesterday was Australia Day (huh?) all the Ozzies took the day off from tending bar and, erm, went to the bar. Namely the Wool Shed on the Northside of the City where wet t-shirts and Fosters seemed to be the flavour of the night. Well we all have our traditions. See all the naughty pictures here...

26.01.10 The Lovely Bones Irish Premiere...
Bafta nominated actress Saoirse Ronan brought her Lovely Bones to Dublin last night and the great and the good turned-out in great numbers to see the much acclaimed moving picture. Goss & scan on the night revolved around Michelle Heaton's engagement rock, thanks to Mr. Hugh Hanley, and Saoirse's designer pink high heels, thanks to Miss Nina Divito. See all the lovely boned guests here...

25.01.10 Jedward Make Study Kool Kidz...
If you are not down with X Factor twinz Jedward folkz then you are almost certainly NOT down with the kidz. Just ask Eircom (and all the media peepz lining-up to be snapped beside them), they launched their online StudyHub with the two effervescent Grimes boyz leading the campaign at the Mansion House last week. (Note we pluralised words with zeds coz that what the kool kidz do. Yes, ShowBiz.ie is kool. Fact). See all the picturez here...

25.01.10 Katie Needs A Knockout Stylist...
We love top amateur female boxer Katie Taylor folks, sure she's only feckin' deadly. But when it comes to the style-stakes we reckon our best pugilistic Olympic gold hope for 2012 needs to go a few rounds with a decent stylist...

22.01.10 The Inside Opens in Dublin...
Hold on to your sick-bags movie goers for an Irish horror flick has been created in the pit of hell that WILL turn your insides out. Literally! We attended the Eoin Macken directed production at The Screen Cinema this week, as did lots of glamourites, many of which had no idea what was about to happen next...

21.01.10 Rob Will Rock Susie...
Move over Brian & Amy and all other golden couples we can't be bothered to mention for the Irish media has a new raison d'etre. Oh yes. It's called Rob Kearney & Susie Amy (or 'Roamy' for short. Calling them 'Rosie' will only lead to confusion!) and they debuted their total togetherness at the 'We Will Rock You' show last night...

20.01.10 IFTA Angels Launch Awards...
The hectic Irish Awards Season is almost upon us again and just to remind of that ominous fact a trilogy of movie babes - namely Jade Yourell, Sarah Bolger and Amy Huberman – all gathered together at the Shelbourne Hotel for the launch today...

19.01.10 Coupled Up Madness At Mrs Brown...
We don't know who sent out the invites to the opening night of Brendan O'Carroll's Mrs Brown play this week but we're assuming it was the same fella who got all the animals on Noah's Ark - coz they all came two-by-two. Boom-Boom. Hilarious. See all the guests here...

19.01.10 MOD Is Our Top Gooseberry...
Celebrating all that was shite in 2009, the annual Gooseberries were awarded in The Sugar Club last week where publisher Michael O'Doherty and his VIP Magazine were voted Worst Publication of 2009. Seriously? Worse than ShowBiz.ie? Now that is shite...

18.01.10 Noirin's New Man-i-Cure...
Big Brother babe Noirin Kelly has found a novel way of getting over her American boyfriend and co-star from the UK Reality TV Show, Isaac Stout. She now only paints the fingernails on one hand PLUS she has also landed herself a new Irish fella... A man-i-cure if you will. See what we did there? Genius...

18.01.10 Who's Exhibiting Model Behaviour?
Gawd. It's not often a photocall princess actually dodges the camera lens on Grafton 'model bread and butter' Street. Rare as hens' teeth that'd be... Well folks, Ireland's recently voted Top Model did just that at the weekend, hiding her face behind her wee cardi to avoid paparazzi attention. Can you guess who the newly bashful beauty is?

15.01.10 Models Back on Grafton Street. Huzzah!
Janey Mackers folks, it sure has been a rather slow start to 2010 on the model spotting front - normally we're tripping over photocall queens in their knickers up and down Grafton Street. Well, thanks to Jenny Lee Masterson and the Euro Millions we saw the first green shoots of a press-call-girl recovery program...

14.01.10 Conrad's Prepping Salon des Saveurs...
Never far from controversy celebrity gourmet cook Conrad Gallagher has once again thrown his chef hat back into the restaurant game and is preparing to launch his new fancy-schmancy French eatery 'Salon des Saveurs' this weekend...

13.01.10 Kellie Blaises Inside Horror Flick...
We know her best for her sultry singing voice and dusky good looks but there's a little more to talented Irish babe Kellie Blaise's bow than just her music. The Dublin stunner has returned to her acting roots and now stars in soon to be released Irish horror flick 'The Inside'...

11.01.10 The Apprentices Joint Birthday...
Okay okay so we had no interest in actually watching this season's TV3 Apprentice reality TV show yet we snap the stars from the series on a rather regular basis. Guilty. As. Charged. Well, we caught up with two of Ireland's new instant celebrities - just add a splash of TV - at a joint Birthday party at Krystle last weekend...

10.01.10 It Might Get Loud Premiere Pix...

10.01.10 Oscar Laying In The Snow But Looking Up At The Stars...
Like the physical metaphorical manifestation of Ireland heading into a bleak and frostbitten 2010 Oscar Wilde's statue sitting proudly in Merrion Square park should be an inspiration to us all... Like the rest of us, he may have been laying in the show but he was most certainly looking up at the stars...

08.01.10 A Danny & Amanda Coupling...
Argh, there's life in the aul unsalted seadog just yet dear readers.

07.01.10 No Biz Like SnowBiz Ireland...
With an icy start to 2010 in the Nation's Capital and beyond there's very little happening in the ShowBizzy world of celebs and socialite laden parties. Well folks, a whole centimetre of white flakes fell in yesterday, thus Ireland's 3rd world like infrastructure folded then fell apart as our impotent leadership became snowblind yet again...

06.01.10 Supreme Mistress Rosie On NYE...
While her gargantuan likeness was glaring down at us from the sides of buses and out of TV3 screens instructing us all to join the Supreme Master cult, ahem sorry, DIET - as the New Year rang in - Rosanna Davison was down sunny Mauritius way with her Dad Chris de Burgh leading the Auld Lang Syne chorus as 2010 kicked off in the Southern hemisphere...

29.12.09 Celebs Spotted Out at Christmas...
While most peeps kept it local this Christmas a few celebs and well known faces bravely ventured into the bitter cold and made it as far as the city centre for a festive tipple or three. Even Una Healy from The Saturdays made it the long way from Tipperary to party at Lillies Bordello...

27.12.09 A Farreller Krystle Wedding...
There's very few things that will drag us out of our well-earned Christmas funk and have our paps wandering the streets with cameras primed a looking for celebs. But last night the rare return of reformed badboy actor Colin Farrell to these shores was just too tantalizing a prize that it dragged us away from yet another cold turkey and stuffing (with mayo) sambo...

27.12.09 Jedward Launch January Sales...
In the January Sales 2010 when you buy one you generally get one free.

See the pictures here...

22.12.09 The Glenda at The Panto...
Usually your standard run o' the mill Christmas Panto is full of Ugly Sisters and quite a few Dames. But no such aesthetic unpleasantness last night as models and social stunners lined-up to see Pippa O'Connor debut in Cinderella at The Tivoli. Xpose's top presenter Glenda Gilson was there as was the TV3 show's former lead anchor Lorraine Keane. DID they scratch each other's bleedin' eyes out? Ooo Nooo They Didn't!

Get it?

18.12.09 Images From Assets Christmas Party '09...

15.12.09 Rosie & Chris Do The X Factor...
Ah it puts a warm Christmas glow into your very heart to see a ShowBizzy daddy & daughter duo hanging out together, especially when they happen to be international singing superstar Chris de Burgh and Miss Worldly Rosanna Davison. The festively dressed pair were spotted in London at The X Factor finals on Sunday and for once the Christmas tunes were coming from another part of the Lady in Red singer other than his mouth...

14.12.09 Ireland Is Up The Feckin' Pole...
It seems the old adage (that we just made-up) is true - there's a stripper inside of every woman just dying to get out. Well folks, last night that point was proved when one of our battle weary snappers wandered innocently into Dublin's Academy and found himself surrounded by skimpily dressed ladies sliding up and down poles like nobody's feckin' business. Before you start chucking Bibles at us - it was in fact Pole Dance Ireland Princess 2009 competition...

There our poor meek-minded snapper was, innocently strolling down Grafton Street yesterday when he happened across Assets’ bestest assets Sara Kavanagh, Ruth O'Neill and Nadia Forde right in the middle of an actual press call shoot.

01.12.09 Jedmania at The Toy Show...

More than often than not a comment left on these hallowed pages by one of you lot really catches our attention (and a certain Irish paper stuck for a story – you know who you are!).

Jeez. We haven't been keeping-up with the Irish Apprentice malarkey of late other than snapping a few peeps from the show, like Aoiffe Madden, on nights out - then hearing passers-by whisper "that's yer wan from The Apprentice".

20.11.09 Two Thirds of Assketeers Won't Pose For ShowBiz.ie...
Those of you with a weak disposition please look away now, the following item is nothing if not harrowing. Nay, horror-ing... Yesterday one of our meek and mild snappers bumped into 2/3 of The Assketeers (Assets 3 top photocall models as named by YOU lot) in the middle of a stormy gale at St Stephens Green Shopping Centre and they point-blank refused to pose-up for fotees on the grounds that they were TOLD never to pose for ShowBiz.ie. Ever. SHOCKER! Yes folks, it is now completely illegal for photocall gals Georgia Salpa and Nadia Forde to pose for our pitiful weak kneed photographers. Hopefully Louise Kavanagh won't leave us. We honestly couldn't go on without Louise...

After a mere year's sojourn the Westlife boys are back with new tunes and a new fragrance - yet some teenage girls seem to have moved-on from the manband. They turned-on Grafton Street's Christmas lights yesterday to rather comical chants of "Jedward". Oh. Dear...

10.11.09 The Tudors Wrap, BodyByrne Launches...
What was that thing Newton said? Oh yeah - for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction. Well folks, the ShowBiz Law of motion sorta works that way too...

You guessed it - balance was restored to our Farce...

We don't really know how Miss Ireland 2009 Laura Patterson will hold-up against the rest of the Worldies on the big stage - but when she lined-up with the four lovely girl representatives of the British Isles yesterday we reckon she only wiped the floor with them.

Our sincerest condolences go out to the Byrne family - R.I.P. Nicolas Byrne Snr...

06.11.09 Who Is Louise's Mystery Lillies Man?
Model Louise Kavanagh may be the head honcho of 'The Three Assketeers' (Assets most snapped ladies - Louise, Nadia & Georgia) but ever since breaking-up with boyfriend Andy Quirke the leggy brunette has kept a low profile on the social scene. Last night we caught her slipping into Lillies Bordello with a mystery man by her side - could this be Lou's new fella? Does anyone really care?? Answers on a postcard...

05.11.09 Brian Rocks Banana Boots Chic...
Who was it that said that if it wasn't for bad fashion sense Brian McFadden would have no fashion sense at all? Oh yeah... It was us.

04.11.09 Jordan Flew In, No One Cared...
Pointless UK celebrity Katie Price aka Jordan jetted into Dublin last weekend under the usual hullabaloo of minders and massive sunglasses for a signing of her new book 'Standing Out' at Hughes & Hughes.

03.11.09 Mikey & The Tudors Wrap at Lillies...
It's only been a mere matter of weeks since the Boyzone boys broken heartedly closed the coffin lid on their late bandmate Stephen Gately - so it was good to see a smile returning to the face of Mikey Graham when we spotted him out at Lillies Bordello last weekend where The Tudors troupe were also having their wrap party...

30.10.09 Andrea Rocks Goth Chick Chic...
Newly nuptialed singer and actress Andrea Corr (or is it Andrea Desmond?) certainly aint letting married mar her fashion fowardness folks. Spotted out in London last night, looking hotter than we've seen her in many a year, the wee Dundalk lass was wearing black to the max contrasted with pale white face powder and those sexy smokey eyes.

The world's first ever gay Irishman, apart from all the other ones, Donal Og Cusack made a big noise and gleaned global exposure by coming-out recently. Why? We hear you cry...

27.10.09 All White At The Krystle Ball...
While things got a wee bit devilish in pink & black at Lillies last bank holiday Sunday, over at rival VIP club Krystle, things were a tad angelic as they held their annual White Ball. With all the angels and devils running around the town at the weekend Dublin sure was the place to be...

We can almost feel our legs again. Hic!

The Pink & Black Affair turned out to be the bash of the weekend but with hair raising consequences...

26.10.09 Images of Fleetwood Mac at The O2...
With a line-up that has changed many times over the last number of decades, our personal fav version of Fleetwood Mac (Mick Fleetwood, Lindsey Buckingham, John McVie and Stevie Nicks) lit-up the O2 Arena last week with a set list any band would be proud of. Annnnd ever since we've been playing Big Love on a loop here the Snotpuke of Ireland - gotta love Big Love folks... Anyhoo here are a few pix of the Maccers in action for your perusal as usual...

Krystle nightclub was all prepped with a Heineken themed victory bash for Dricco and the Leinster lads after their showdown with London Irish at the RDS Stadium last Friday. Alas, our exiled UK cousins grabbed the victory away and all that turned-up at the VIP venue was a whole lot of hot ladies... We can live with that.

13.10.09 Was It A B Scene Birthday?
On our travels between chasing Ozzy Osbourne around the town and snapping Tubs' guests on the Late Late Show last Friday night we got a call to snap the guests at a B Scene birthday party in the new Cocoon Lounge. But was it the Model Agency's birthday or one of its founders? Surely someone out there must know...

12.10.09 Una's 28th On The Lash...
The best thing to come out of Tipperary since the Rock of Cashel, The Saturdays' singer Una Healy, was out celebrating her 28th birthday in that London last weekend. Although she blames the naughty paparazzi on creative shot-selection, we still reckon she had a wee drinkywinky or two...

12.10.09 Claudine Rocks Sue Ellen Chic...
WAG extraordinaire Claudine Palmer let her hair down on Saturday night after watching her hubbie Robbie Keane lead Ireland to a sensational draw with Italy at Croke Park.

09.10.09 Proper Models Spotted in Dublin Shocker...
Holy mother of divine Jaaaysus what's going on in this country at all? The banks have gone to the wall, the arse has fallen out of house prices, the public sector is about to go on strike, and now our beloved photocall queens are moving back in with their Mammies as proper actual genuinely really real models mop-up all the available work. WHERE will it all end?

08.10.09 Damo Goes Back To His Roots...
All round musical ledge Damien Rice may have lost the super talented Lisa Hannigan from his backing band but he deffo hasn't lost his affinity with nature and all things planty.

06.10.09 Rosie Rocks Pretty Woman Chic...
Not since Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman has a lady looked so hot in thigh-high-hooker-boots. That's right folks; recently Royal Rosanna Davison sexed-up her footwear to eleven on the amp dial at a recent trip to Krystle nightclub.

04.10.09 Battle of The Clubs Navan Stylee...
It seems things are really heating-up in the club wars down Navan way folks. Last weekend Ink nightclub opened its doors with busty Big Brother winner Sophie Reade on hand to excite the punters, meanwhile over at the Palace Bar & Club Corrie's Kym Marsh and Emmerdale's Kelvin Fletcher showed-up to steal away the thunder. Let the battle of the clubs commence. Oh it's on...

30.09.09 Our Eamo Ties The Knot...
Jaysus, would you Adam & beliEve it? The bould Eamon Dunphy only went and tied the knot with his long term partner Jane Gogan last week at the tender age of 64. Despite being Ireland's most hard nosed controversial soccer pundit our Eamo really is just a big romantic at heart...

29.09.09 Laura Patterson Miss Ireland 2009...

28.09.09 A Trilogy of Hot Irish Actresses...
Right. So we've been barking on about how Irish actresses aint keeping up with their male counterparts in the global movie business for ages. But, when we spotted Alison Doody, Victoria Smurfit & Amy Huberman together at The Late Late Show last Friday night we suddenly realised that there are at least a few of our finest ladies succeeding out there on the silver screen...

23.09.09 Rhys Meyers Greying For Henry...
You would think with all the crazy ups-and-downs going-on in his personal life that Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers would be aging prematurely. Not so. Rather, it's the colossal role of King Henry VIII in The Tudors that has a wisp of grey in the star's beard...

21.09.09 Rosanna's A Lipsy London Girl...
It seems our favourite Miss World, like ever, Rosanna Davison has left these shores behind and relocated her fine self to London town. And if it wasn't enough that she's given the old VIP treatment at home, whist across the water she's getting invited into exclusive high street showrooms for private shopping sprees...

21.09.09 Cocoon Finds A New Home...
For over a decade F1 driver Eddie Irvine's Cocoon Bar was the place to be seen for hip Celtic Tiger cubs. Alas, the darn recession pulled the plug on the suave drinking den, but fear not dear reader - thanks to the savvy Cafolla brothers - Cocoon lives once again. Huzzah...

17.09.09 Cillian's Wet LA Inception...
Probably our favourite Irish leading-lad (for his body of work rather than his larking about) Cillian Murphy has hooked-up once again with acclaimed Batman director Christopher Nolan to shoot 'Inception'. We caught up with Cork's finest in LA this week in the middle of a rather unseasonable rain shower...

16.09.09 Kelly's Irish Osbourne In-Law...
She may come from the most infamously famous family in the planet but Kelly Osbourne's Osbourne clan also have an Irish branch. The daughter of the Prince of Darkness, Ozzy, caught-up with her sister-in-law Louise after last week's Late Late Show...

15.09.09 Donegal Tweed Gets On Its Choos...
Who would have thought it? Donegal tweed just got cool folks - the traditional Irish brand has just hooked-up with uber famous shoe brand Jimmy Choo and a couple of well heeled Irish celebrities...

15.09.09 Danielle All-White At Residence...
Freshly newly Wed Welsh lingerie model Danielle Bux left her hubbie Gary Lineker at home this week and had a lone Honeymoon of sorts in Dublin. With only a Samsung Phone in her hand she presided over a All-White party in Residence...

09.09.09 Xpose Rivals Go For A Picnic...
Sadly, there was no animosity between Xpose's former lead anchor and her younger replacement at last weekend's Electric Picnic. We had high hopes for a foxy mud wrestling session between Lorraine Keane and Glenda Gilson in the mucky Strandbally field - but all we got was hugs and kisses. Darn...

08.09.09 Dublinites Give The Picnic A Miss...
Each year around this time Dublin becomes a virtual ghost-town as all our best and brightest relocate to Co. Laois for a spot of camping at The Electric Picnic. But this year it felt like many of Dublin's party people stuck with fashionable footwear and Krystle nightclub instead of roughing-it in the countryside...

07.09.09 Una Rocks Red Tresses...
It seems The Saturdays' stunner Una Healy is really going back to her roots after a recent trip home to Tipperary with boyfriend Ben Foden. Not since Maureen O'Hara in The Quiet Man has an Irish lass looked this good with red hair...

02.09.09 Sinead To Alight Miss Ireland...
Has it been a whole year already? Seems so. We've only just got to know sweet wee Sinead Noonan and here we are looking for another lovely lady to replace her. You guessed it folks, Miss Ireland time has rolled around again...

01.09.09 Awkward Return For Wesanna...
It was only a matter of time before reconciled couple of the moment Rosanna Davison and Wesley Quirke stepped-out in front of our cameras once again, and last night saw their double debut at her Dad Chris De Burgh's Gaiety Theatre concert. Only this time around folks, they certainly don’t seem as comfortable and confident with snappers around...

01.09.09 The Script Sell Out Dublin...
There sure was a lot of home grown musical talent knocking around this city last week. Apart from everything else we had the other best band from the Dublin – aka The Script - selling-out The Olympia for five consecutive nights...

31.08.09 Noirin Recycles Her Dublin Look...
Irish Big Brother star Noirin Kelly is rather new to the world of celebrity, avidly learning as she goes. But when she recycled her Dublin debut Lipsy dress at a nightclub in London last week she committed the worst celeb sin imaginable - she wore the same outfit TWICE...

25.08.09 Celeb Boxers Get The Babes...
Last Saturday night saw the bloody culmination of RTE's latest 'celebrity' Reality TV show - Charity Lords of the Ring. We of course use the term 'celebrity' very very very lightly in this case, just in case you lot start leaving reams of abusive comments. Turns out there were far more interesting celebrities watching the bouts than actually participating in the hilariously mismatched spats. Seriously, we've seen better scraps in the schoolyard...

25.08.09 Mr Ireland's Hollywood Secret...
It seems Rosanna Davison isn't the only Irish beauty pageant aficionado with some major ShowBiz links in the bag. Turns out Mr. Ireland 2009 Kamal Ibrahim has an even bigger star than Chris De Burgh in his lineage - the Limerick lad is second cousin to Hollywood legend Danny DeVito, but they certainly aint Twins...

24.08.09 Noirin's Single & Pippa's Got A Rock...
Last Saturday night was most definitely ladies' night at Krystle nightclub with newly single Noirin Kelly letting her hair-down with gal pals and Pippa O'Connor in fine form with a gaggle of Hens in tow...

20.08.09 Hot Buns Of The Decade Award...
It's not often that we demean women to mere objects of sexual desire but holy crap - check out this finely honed arse! That's right folks, at the TV3 Autumn Schedule launch yesterday we spotted a righteous rump, a bodacious bottom, a heavenly hole, a trim tushie, a perfect set of gorgeous glutes. But who owns this tight little package we hear you cry...

19.08.09 Holly's Fashionable Uprising...
Dan & Becs star Holly White (who ironically is actually that posh in real life) has stepped away from the shaky-cam hoisted in her car for the moment and relaunched herself as a nouveau chic fashion icon. The actress with a handful of models & designers opened 'Uprising' in Temple Bar last evening...

18.08.09 Lloyd DJs The Wright Venue...
Superstar DJs had better watch out coz UK model Danielle Lloyd has taken to spinning tunes on the decks. Well, she can throw on a mix CD and look good in earphones - are any other skills really required? Dani hit The Wright Venue last weekend...

17.08.09 Ormond's 30th & The Krystle Crew...
Fresh faced fella Brian Ormond may look like puberty has yet to come to town, but the RTE presenter is in fact a lot more mature than you might think folks. Yup, the Westside Dubliner gathered his posse of telly friends, armfuls of models and celebrated his 30th birthday at Krystle last weekend...

13.08.09 Brunker Seeks Mr International...
If there ever was an Irish woman well capable of handling a bunch of naked torso'd hunky males, it's Amanda Brunker. The outgoing blonde bombshell found herself amidst about 20 oiled up fellas at the Button Factory last night. Ah, an average night for Brunker...

12.08.09 So Long Wesanna Hello Madia...
What with it being the midst of silly season and there not being much by the way of ShowBiz news to report on, mercifully we happened across Ireland's Next Top Couple last evening in the form of model Nadia Forde and DJ Mark Noble. Yup, seems like this pair are the next Wesanna, thus it's only fair we brand them aptly. Heeeeeeere's 'Madia'...

10.08.09 Burlesque Just Went Blue...
Burlesque is the new black baby. We can't remember what the old black was - maybe it was in fact simply black. Mad. But last weekend the French fetish wear just got cool when the search was conducted for Ireland's Next Top Burlesque Star... Next? Who was Ireland's Previous Top Burlesque Star?

09.08.09 The Edge Turns 48 in France...
U2 axeman David Howell Evans, aka The Edge, turned 48 at the weekend. With U2 now based in the South of France the Northside boys most likely raised a celebratory glass of fine red wine rather than their usual tipple - a creamy pint o' Guinness...

06.08.09 Noirin Brings Her Fella Home...
If you were among the six or seven people actually watching Big Brother this year you are no doubt quite au fait with Irish contestant Noirin Kelly. Well, after causing quite a stir on the paint-by-numbers controversy-for-controversy's-sake TV show, she's out on her ear and back in Dublin with her American soul mate beau in tow...

06.08.09 Dane Puts The Ladies On Ice...
Former boyband crooner Dane Bowers did a PA at Dandelion last weekend but ended-up a cocktail waiter at the city centre drinking den. Infamous for getting inside Jordan's drawers, the Another Level singer cooled-down a local lass who just happened to be laying on the bar...

04.08.09 Huzzah! Wesanna's Back Baby...
Was it all a bad dream? Did it even happen folks? Were Ireland's cheesiest photocall couple actually apart for the past six months or, like Bobby Ewing stepping out of the shower in Dallas, was it was all just some crazy distorted mirage? We don't know, but at the weekend Rosanna Davison took back her boy Wesley Quirke and the duo WE invented, aka Wesanna, were once more. It's like Groundhog Day all over again, except without Bill Murry or, erm, the Groundhog...

03.08.09 Fatboy Slim Was Welly Fab...
Ok. Ok. Worst headline like EVER. But hey! It’s a bank holiday Monday and we're all crabby, hungover and mentally defunct. Annnnyways, Fatboy Slim played Marlay Park yesterday and gave Dublin's fine young things another excuse to drag out their Oxegen Wellies from under the stairs and strut-it in brightly coloured rubber...

31.07.09 Ali & AJ Bandslam Dundrum...
US teen sister sensations Aly & AJ Michalka launched the 'Bandslam' movie with a Premiere at Dundrum Town Centre last Sunday. If, like us, you have no idea who Aly & AJ are, then you probably don't watch the Disney Channel and are above 13 years old...

28.07.09 Heaton Blows Out 30 Candles...
If you had of told Liberty X singer Michelle Heaton a few years back that she'd find herself living in Dublin at thirty with an Irish fella, a husky dog, and a totally new circle of friends - she would never have believed you. Well folks, that's what happened last weekend when the Newcastle lass had her surprise 30th birthday at Krystle...

28.07.09 Are Jonny & Reena Hitched?
There we were hanging outside U2 at Croker last night expecting the usual bevy of photocall models and TV presenter types, when up rocks Tudors actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers with long term on/off girlfriend Reena Hammer on his arm. Both of the loved-up love birds were wearing gold bands on their wedding fingers... So, has the high profile pair finally got hitched?

26.07.09 U2 Boys Home to Party...
Ireland's most famous sons Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen returned to their Northside roots this weekend and brought their gigantic 360 tour to Croker. The U2 boys also showed they haven't lost their taste for the Rock 'n' Roll lifestyle with a rather late afterparty at Residence...

24.07.09 Coco Before Chanel Premiere...

23.07.09 Elle & Irish Models Shake Their Maracas...
Uber hot Maxim cover girl Elle Liberachi and a selection of familiar Irish models got together in The POD yesterday at the Lynx Fever Brazilian Beach Party 2009. Annnd where there's a bevy of bikini clad beauties strolling around shaking their big Maracas, you will always find a ShowBiz.ie snapper folks...

22.07.09 Harry Potter & Miriam's Brood...
It is the general consensus that bit o' alright RTE broadcaster Miriam O'Callaghan is one rather hot Momma. And at almost 50 she's still improving like a fine wine. She attended the Harry Potter & The Half-blood Prince Premiere last week with her massive brood in tow. In fact, she has sooo many kids folks that she actually lives in a shoe...

20.07.09 Twilight Hunk Dances A Jig...
Okay folks, here’s how it is... If you're above a certain age the word Twilight refers to that fuzzy time between sunset and nightfall. If you're below a certain age, 'Twilight' is your raison d'être and the star of the mega movie franchise - Robert Pattinson - your own personal Jesus. With retractable fangs...

19.07.09 The Father Teds Reunite...
It's been a good few years since Irish comic Dermot Morgan sadly passed away and new episodes of hit sitcom Father Ted stopped appearing on our TV screens. All those involved in the side-splittingly-funny Channel 4 show went on to other things – more recently, a selection of them got together and made the movie 'Wide Open Spaces'...

17.07.09 Heaton's Hot Dog Gets Chipped...
Marilyn Monroe may have added weight to the old adage: diamonds ARE a girl's best friend. But ever since they invented diamante studded canine collars, now dogs ARE a girl's new best friend. And when Paris Hilton invented dogs that fit easily into a handbag, soon every celeb had a pooch to match their personality. But watch out, those valuable pets can and will get plundered by dog-nappers...

16.07.09 Georgia's A Monster Wrestler...
Greek-Irish model Georgia 'The Body' Salpa threw on a teeny weeny red bikini yesterday, stepped into the ring in killer heels, and grabbed a six-foot-eight 350lb monster TNA wrestler into a deadly headlock. A giant wrestler was also in the ring you say? Musta missed that one...

15.07.09 Katy Perry Says Hello Kitty...
Ok. Ok. So we've been grumbling on about not being accredited for Oxegen and missing Lady Gaga at every likely papping location (apart from Punchestown). But at least one of our more avid snappers did manage to grab a few candid shots of Katy Perry and Pete Doherty as they exited stage left from the country...

14.07.09 Huberman's Homage To Heartbreak...
Clinic babe Amy Huberman is one of our favourite Irish actresses folks. Well she exudes class, has buckets of talent, and has somehow managed to tame rugby hero Brian O'Driscoll. Not being one to sit around waiting for her agent to ring, our Amy put pen-to-paper during one of her fallow acting periods and instantly became a Chick-Lit author. Hello Heartbreak...

13.07.09 Oxegen Stars Jet In & Out...
Wow, what a car-azy wet weekend it was folks. This year we made the executive decision hound all of the Oxegen Festival Acts at the airport and at their hotels rather than at the Punchestown venue - mainly because we applied for our accreditation too feckin’ late! And after all that messing around in the teeming rain we still didn't manage to snap Lady Gaga...

13.07.09 The Wright Venue Cometh...
With hot naked ladies painted gold and others with live snakes wrapped around their thighs, you would think a James Bond movie was shooting in Swords' Airside Business Park last Friday night. In fact it was the opening of uber club The Wright Venue which was finally unveiled to the public and a few thirsty celebs toboot...

09.07.09 Michelle Heaton's A Brown Cow...
The above headline, although witty and insightful, is not a reference to Michelle Heaton's abuse of the dreaded Fake Bake o'er the years folks. As If? It simply states that the former Liberty X singer is now part of the Sandyford based Brown Cow tanning & beauty boutique and can be YOUR celebrity stylist if you shell-out the dosh for the privilege. It’s a feckin' bargain...

08.07.09 Roisin's Miss Afterdark Traits...
Miss Ireland time must be rolling around again folks as we can't help bumping into throngs of bikini clad young ladies strolling around nightclubs with numbers glued to their hips.

Former Blue singer Duncan James brought his pretty boy good self to Dublin last weekend to check out the new NV nightclub on Leeson Street.

Bless.

26.05.09 Claudine Bounces Back After Baby...

18.05.09 The McMunters Staying Put...
Branded 'McMunters' by the ShowBiz.ie faithful, the McBarron sisters sometimes get a rough ride from the press and random internet commentators. But what’s not to love?

21.01.09 Eoghan Quigg's Flying Low...
Westlife may be famous for Flying Without Wings, but their wee Irish protégé Eoghan Quigg is getting a name for himself for Flying Without his flies done-up! No wonder he drove those teenage girls insane at Burn Beach nightclub last weekend...

16.12.08 Models Must B Scene at Christmas...
We reckon models are having far too much fun in this town. Well, they get paid for doing little more than standing around looking pretty, free cars & clothes, full access to the all VIP nightclubs, and the choice of either dating one of the Irish Rugby team or a daytime presenter off RTE... Even when it comes to the usual drab Christmas party they get to book-out the plush 995 Penthouse Suite in Krystle. Not. Fair.

25.11.08 Satanic Sluts Cause A Stir...
With a name like 'The Satantic Sluts' and an S&M burlesque bondage striptease act thrown in for good measure, you could bet your balls-to-a-barndance that your prudish Irish bible bashers would be up-in-arms when Georgina Baillie and her gothic vixens made an appearance on The Late Late Show. But not even an impromptu phone call from Russell Brand & Jonathan Ross could have outraged your average Irish viewer into making a complaint last Friday night. Why? Well, turns out the The Satanic Sluts stage show is all a bit meh...

04.11.08 Bond Premiere Part Deux...
It seems we may have prematurely ejaculated our prognosis on last week's Quantum of Solace Premiere. For it was merely one-of-two James Bond launch nights.

17.10.08 Krystle Party Was Stellar...
Queen of the Clubs Valerie Roe is looking ten years younger than most woman, erm, ten years younger than her!

Hot Val was checking-out the competition last night when she attended the 'Stellar' magazine launch at Krystle nightclub...

15.10.08 Girly Night at Lara's Boutique...
Apart from being really hot chicks - what do Michelle Heaton, Glenda Gilson, Emma Ledden, Pamela Flood, Michele McGrath, Pippa O'Connor and a few more stunners have in common? Well, it seems they are all addicted to the designer clothes Lara Casey stocks in her Dame Lane boutique...

15.10.08 The Stig V The Glenda...
After nearly being run-over by Glenda Gilson while crossing Dame Street last week, ShowBiz Ireland staff were almost convinced that the Alfa Romeo driving model slash TV presenter was none other than Top Gear's mysterious driver 'The Stig'.

13.10.08 Nicky Hits The Big 3-0...
Westlife's Nicky Byrne received a wonderful gift for his 30th birthday - a Hello! Magazine deal. Wow!

Should have just gone down the pub lad.

13.10.08 Claudine Lets Her Hair Down...
In the spirit of fairness and impartiality we thought we'd better show these images of Claudine Palmer with her hair let down at Krystle nightclub last Saturday night.

13.10.08 Claudine Rocks Princess Leia Chic...
Blonde bombshell Claudine Palmer got her platinum tresses dolled-up in Peter Mark at the weekend ahead of her appearance on Tubridy Tonight. We kinda papped the sexy WAG legging-it to her car post stylist, rocking what we can only call 'Princess Leia Chic'... Oh, you work it girl.

11.10.08 Has Farrell Tied The Knot?
Castleknock's most favourite son Colin Farrell darted by the paparazzi like a man on a mission after landing in LAX yesterday.

Chick-lit book worm Cecelia Ahern has a lot to celebrate this week. With ten million sales worldwide, a new offering on the shelves called 'The Gift', and another one of her books optioned by Hollywood, it's no wonder she needed an entire restaurant to have a quiet meal with a few close friends...

08.10.08 Amy's Tale Wags The BOD...
The Clinic's Amy Huberman is our total fav Irish actress of the moment and not just because she's a little bag of cute smiling energy... We reckon she rocks because she keeps her big brute of a rugby playing boyfriend, Brian O'Driscoll, in check and handles the whole ShowBiz thing with effortless style. You go girl.

07.10.08 Manolo Opens Brown Thomas Store...
Oooo dear. A Mecca for those strappy spiky torture devices women wear on their feet has opened in Dublin. For those men out there unaware of who or what a 'Manolo Blahnik' is - put it like this... Women scream at the mere hint of his name and would sell any one of their children to get their hands on his shoes. Seriously. We aint kidding...

07.10.08 Rhys Meyers Meets Trinity Phil...
Pillow lipped and snake hipped actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers finally got a bit of academic recognition for his totally accurate portrayal of a historical figure in The Tudors.

03.10.08 No Peachy Visit for Peaches...
What's up with those pesky teenagers these days? Such a privileged bunch of ingrates yet stuck in a permanent storm-cloud of huffs, strops and pouts.

03.10.08 Farrell's Fella In The Red...
Despite getting the cold shoulder from Louis Walsh's next big girlband project, Michele McGrath hit the town last night without a care in the world. With Tudors actress Slaine Kelly by her side, Shelly was one of many hot ladies at Steven Mannion's 'Red Collection' exhibition alongside Colin Farrell's brother Eamon...

02.10.08 Bring Back Palmer Pits...
Hairy armpits were once the reputed reserve of the French lady. But if there's one thing Amanda Palmer of 'The Dresden Dolls' showed us at the weekend - unsaved pits are SEXY! So come on Glenda, Andrea, Rosanna & Sara - throw those lady-razors in the trash and lead the way for an au-natural Irish female revolution...

01.10.08 Shelley Conn Gets RAW...
RTE has gone all-out with steamy new restaurant drama 'RAW' with hot actresses Shelley Conn and Charlene McKenna giving the lads a reason to tune-in too. It's about time our National broadcaster broke away from safe programming and sexed things up a bit with a contemporary series. Bravo.

29.09.08 Cavill Gets Some Krystle Savvy...
When it comes to handsome devil-ness there are very few actors that can give Jonathan Rhys Meyers a run for his money.

The Stardust actor got-down with a bevy of models at Krystle at the weekend...

25.09.08 Bono Rocks Jarhead Chic...
It seems like Bono's dreaded mullet days are long behind him, safely locked away in the eighties. But since he's ditched the long flowing locks and opted for the traditional short-back-and-sides, his hair has got tighter and tighter. We know he's well in with George Bush but we think the US Marine Corp 'Jarhead' look is a step too far...

25.09.08 The Doggfather Rolls In...
The Doggfather of hip hop Snoop Dogg and his gangsta posse invaded Dublin's RDS last night. Despite being hit with more fines and more bans in more countries than he cares to remember, Cordozar Calvin Broadus (real name) always gets a big Irish céad míle fáilte on these shores...

25.09.08 Off The Rails BIG BAG Chic...
With fashion disasters Caroline Morahan and Pamela Flood neatly elbowed out-of-the-way, ‘Off The Rails’ comes back on RTE TV tonight with even camper capers now that Brendan Courtney & Sonya Lennon are at the helm.

First there was Lillies Bordello, then Renards, and then Krystle soon followed by The Residence...

22.09.08 Rosanna Let Loose in London...
If your newspapers felt a little light last week that was because the Photocall & Promotions Princess Rosanna Davison was loose in London.

22.09.08 Krystle Steals Nobu Afterparty...

17.09.08 Louis' Latest Girlband Gaffe...
It may merely be a case of over-anxious PR execs trying to drum-up interest in yet another photocall - it could also mean the cat-is-out-of-the-bag on Louis Walsh and Kian Egan's new girlband... Either way, a misdirected press release yesterday named Michele McGrath as a final member of the much hyped group...

16.09.08 Dale Goes Wild in Donegal...
This year's Big Brother pin-up boy Dale Howard may not have gone down too well with viewers of the Reality Show but he sure was a hit with Junior Cert students in Donegal last week. He hit-the-tiles at the Limelight nightclub in Glenties baby...

16.09.08 Pacino & De Niro Get Xposed...
Jeez. Is no one safe from those pesky Xpose girls over at TV3? We know us paparazzi get a bad rap, but those darn Xpose bunnies are the worst celebrity stalkers there are by feckin' miles...

Oh, and whatever you do - don't call her a WAG.

05.09.08 The Script Break Even with Vid...

04.09.08 Walliams Finds A Proper Laydee...
Okay then. Here's the bit where we try to fit as many David Walliams / Little Britain catchphrases and euphemisms into this feature and come off sounding all clever and journalisticy... We spotted the comic star holding hands with his Mummy in Dublin last week, wonder if he asked for "bitty"?

02.09.08 Kian in Tatts at Electric Picnic...
It seems 'surfer chic' has gone to Westlife crooner Kian Egan's erm, leg... The normally suited and booted boyband man was dressed-down and chilled-out to the max while backstage at The Electric Picnic at the weekend - revealing some spiritual tattoos. Who would have thought?

02.09.08 Claudine Rocks Electric 'WAG Chic'...
Okay, where to start... Claudine Palmer has become a bit of a WAG phenomenon in the style-stake since wedding footballer Robbie Keane. Rocking a Farrah Fawcett gold headband, Daisy Duke denim hotpants and more designer bling than P. Diddy - we're not quite sure where she's going with this look at Electric Picnic. But we love it anyways...

29.08.08 Krazy Katherine's Back On The Streets...
As TV3 launched their new schedule it’s nice to see that RTE are still allocating license payers' money to home grown TV production and not just buying-in foreign shows and formats.

25.08.08 JC Reilly Gets Trinity Honours...
Begorrah! When these American comic superstars come to Ireland searching their roots, they really wear their Celtic heritage like a badge of honour... At the weekend, John C. Reilly upstaged Will Ferrell's recent wearing of the Irish rugby green when he turned up at Trinity College wearing a traditional wooly Aran sweater. Well, at least he left the pipe and flat-cap at home...

22.08.08 Guess The Actor Wearing High Heels?
There's a certain Irish leading man that falls off the wagon from time to time. If he's not too careful, he'll fall off his high-heel boots too... Can you guess the award winning actor who is using shoe-lifts to help him reach bigger heights in his career?

Two of the funniest men on the planet, Will Ferrell & John C. Reilly, have been holed-up on in a Dublin hotel over the past week.

The life of the bachelor isn't all it's hyped up to be folks - just ask RTE's top male presenters Gerry Ryan, Ryan Tubridy & Joe O'Shea.

No sooner had we commented on the immanent rise of 'celebeens' (i.e. the rich offspring of Irish celebs) and out steps Bono's daughter Memphis Eve Hewson dripping with star quality. Having already landed a US movie role, has Bono's daughter got the ShowBiz gene too?

12.08.08 Walliams Checks-Out Gambon's Dublin...

Golden Globe winning US TV period drama 'The Tudors' was back at its spiritual home last week when the huge production took over Dublin's historic Christ Church. All good if you're Jonathan Rhys Meyers' King Henry VIII. Not so good if you're Natalie Dormer's Anne Boleyn...

05.08.08 Johnny Depp Waits Around Dublin...
We can't remember the last time Johnny Depp did Dublin. It might have been around 15 years ago when painted the Docklands red with the bould Shane MacGowan - or is that story ShowBiz mythology? Well, the salty seadog Captain Jack Sparrow was in town last week hanging out with his wife Vanessa Paradis and singer Tom Waits. No mythology here folks, we got the exclusive shot...

04.08.08 Rosanna Browned-Off at Krystle...
If you've opened a newspaper anywhere in Ireland today you've no doubt seen our exclusive pictures of Rosanna Davison with her new brunette tresses whilst out at Krystle nightclub at the weekend...

01.08.08 Guess The Annoying ShowBiz Kid?
Okay. So it's bad enough that the poor paparazzi have to deal with diva-esque celebrities and their security and minders and drivers and PAs and fanatical fans, all trying to stop us getting their photos.

31.07.08 Guess Who Has A Stiff Wrist?
It seems a certain Irish male model has been flexing his right wrist waaay too much lately - to such an extent that he needs a special support sock. Considering that himself and the girlfriend are desperately trying to find their own pad to get some privacy away from the parents, is it any wonder he's sprained his right hand’s most vital joint?

30.07.08 Guess The Boyband Baldy?
It's a bit slow on the ShowBiz front this week folks so unless you send us in tip-offs and your celeb snaps, we'll just find other ways to amuse ourselves... We spotted a hunky Irish celeb at the weekend getting a bit o' sunburn on his barnett's ever increasing bald spot. Can you tell who it is?

28.07.08 Jodi Albert Doesn't DO Queues Baby...

17.07.08 Saturdays Una is Christian's Girl...
With the voice (and looks) of an angel Irish singer Una Healy gave-up the solo guitar and joined much hyped UK girlband 'The Saturdays' this year.

15.07.08 Victoria's Secret Night at The Residence...

15.07.08 Czech-Out Once Couple Rowing...
It seems that the stresses and strains of world wide success and Oscar glory may have had its impact on 'Once' couple Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova. We spotted the talented couple having a heated exchange in the Czech Republic last week...

14.07.08 Christensen's Got Condom Power...

09.07.08 Devereux Touting Punters For Six...
With a big black phallic shaped instrument in his hand, Channel Six's roaming reporter Brian Devereux searched the streets of Dublin yesterday desperately seeking unsuspecting young men. Sounds ominous? Well it should, he was touting punters for video-bites for his interactive music show 'Popscene'...

08.07.08 Heaton's Prospects Look Fairly Shitty...
Jobless former UK Reality TV star Michelle Heaton has been in Ireland for the past few months trying to pick up some regular work. In a few interviews we've heard her drop MASSIVE hints that she'd like a role in crappy Irish Soap Opera 'Fair City' - it seems her less than coy ploy has hit-home with TV execs. Sadly they've told her to get-the-boat...

07.07.08 Has Farrell Fertilised Forrest?
Okay. Okay. We know we've been right in the middle of many recent Colin Farrell speculative features, but this latest one, we wouldn’t even attempt to make-up... Colin Farrell brought his girlfriend Emma Forrest to a Hollywood pharmacy this week, AND apparently left a receipt behind showing that the couple bought a pregnancy test. Oooo dear, here we go again...

07.07.08 Neeson Spits A Loogie in St Tropez...

04.07.08 The Bangles Bring Eternal Flame To Dublin...
Way, way, waaay before you had your Girls Aloud and Pussycat Dolls - the 80s gave us the original girlband template: 'The Bangles.' They were really hot. And guess what? They still are...

03.07.08 Sara & Conor Krystlized Once Again...
When we first heard that Krystle boss Conor Buckley and model Sara Kavanagh's relationship had been terminated, we thought Arnold Schwarzenegger came back in time and broke-up the happy couple... Terminator? Sara Conor?? Get it??? No???? Feck yis.

03.07.08 Old Man Neil Young Gets A Vit-Hit...
We are spoilt for choice this summer with the quality of artists flying in to entertain us... The Daddy of them all, Neil Young, was King of The Castle at the weekend when he played Malahide. Support came from Oscar winners Marketa Irglova and Glen Hansard...

03.07.08 Stu & Chaz - Hollywood's True Romance...
A day hardly goes by when Charlize Theron doesn't have to answer a question on whether she intends to Marry or have kids with her Irish fella, Stuart Townsend. Seven years into their bind and the two lovers look more solid than ever, and STILL refuse to play the Hollywood game...

02.07.08 Call Tyrone, Erykah Badu's in Town...
Grammy Award winning American R&B artist Erykah Badu played Vicar Street last night - when we say there was standing-room-only, we really mean it. With hits like 'On & On' and 'Call Tyrone' on offer you could have got Lottery money for a rare Badu ticket...

01.07.08 Jay-Z Hovas Over Dublin...
You can call him Shawn Corey Carter or Jay-Z or Hova or Jigga Man... Just don't call him past-it (even if you're Noel Gallagher). Yes. The king of Rap made a welcome return to Dublin this weekend and we was all Big Pimpin'...

01.07.08 All Roadz Lead to Boyzone Gig...

30.06.08 Di Angelo Eastended Heaton's Marriage...

27.06.08 Is Farrell Minnie's Designated Driver?
The Irish papers, with no rhyme or reason, are harping on about Colin Farrell finding love with an English author called Emma Forrest. But we think they may be wide-of-the-mark and missed the spicy Minnie Driver ingredient in this intriguing little dish...

26.06.08 Conrad 'Michelin Man' Gallagher is Back...
Rotund 2 star Michelin chef Conrad Gallagher is back on Irish soil - this time without the handcuffs! His brood has grown with a sexy South African bride Candice and two small boys... But is he home to stir-things-up?

26.06.08 Heat's On Heaton & Her Mystery Men...
Mrs. Tango Michelle Heaton has sure become the popular girl about-the-town as far as Dublin is concerned. We spotted her on Saturday night entering Krystle with another mystery beau under her arm... Question is: does she ever wear any other colour other than pink?

25.06.08 Dunphy Pulls A Minger At The Miriam Show...
Grumpy aul soccer pundit Eamon Dunphy scored in extra time when he stepped outside RTE Studios for a smoke and bumped into Jade Goody... The unlikely duo hit-it-off immediately and even went on a date. We shit you not.

24.06.08 Sinead Noonan - Miss Ireland 2008...
Another day, another Beauty Queen. Yes, you guessed it. Ireland has another lovely girl in a sash and a tiara, doing the Queen's wave and hoping to work with children and the elderly... (Drum Roll) Miss Ireland 2008 is: Sinead Noonan. Deal with it.

23.06.08 Who Are Myleene & Brian Jeering?
Before Sinead Noonan walked away with the Miss Ireland 2008 title at the weekend, there was an interval act being slated... The poor Popstar in question was totally unawares that as he was singing his heart out, Myleene Klass & Brian Dowling were mocking him in the wings. Naughty, naughty...

23.06.08 Spencer Tunick's Naked-Arsed Dublin...
Seems like Dubliners lost all their inhibitions at the weekend and got their wobbly and dangly unmentionables out on the beach. Artist Spencer Tunick feels the human body is beautiful, in all its forms... ALL its forms? We beg to differ.

20.06.08 Has Byram Got A New Beau?
Ireland's hottest ever TV presenter Amanda Byram has left those dodgy Paddy Kielty days behind her and become a huge success in USA presenting two top Reality shows. She was spotted with a new handsome fella in Temple Bar yesterday...

19.06.08 Grumpy McGinley Scrubs-Up in Dublin...
Scrubs actor John C. McGinley is either a true stalwart of the method acting tradition or just a grumpy bastard. We caught up with Dr. Cox out on the town in Dublin at the weekend. Annnnd if looks could kill...

19.06.08 Rhys Meyers' New Girl for The Chop?
US period drama 'The Tudors' is back in Dublin for its annual summer sojourn. We caught up with a few of the regular cast members, Henry Cavill and James Frain, partying in the city at the weekend with sexy actress Charlotte Salt... But is Charlotte the latest love interest for Jonathan Rhys Meyers?

18.06.08 Has Yvonne Done A Britney?

17.06.08 Gerry Adams Gets-Down To Cohen...
It seems Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams isn't just the one-dimensional stuffed-shirt we thought he was - oh no... The West Belfast man likes to get-down, and his chosen brand of groove? Leonard Cohen... Well we always knew that behind that beard and those glasses beats the heart of a true (folk) rock star...

17.06.08 Has Colin Farrell Wed in Secret?
And the Colin Farrell rumour-mill goes into overdrive once more... Okaaay. The whole skinny thing has died down but we've another Farrell related speculation for ya'll. He's only going around wearing a feckin' wedding ring these days... Will it ever end?

16.06.08 Did Bono Say NO To Lisbon?
There usually isn't a single political subject that U2 frontman Bono doesn't have a vocalised and serialised opinion on. Yet, he kept his views on The Lisbon Treaty very close to his chest, until now... When we snapped him at the weekend, we reckon he was getting all subliminal on our arses...

13.06.08 Glenda & The Puerto Banus Strip...
We have spies everywhere folks - even down in 'Dublin in the sun' - Marbella. This week we spotted Glenda Gilson trying to blend-in wearing cammo gear while walking the Puerto Banus 'strip' with gal-pal Olivia Kinealy... But at what posh eatery did they chow-down?

13.06.08 Lynn Kelly - Miss Universe Ireland 2008...
Year after year for as far back as we can remember Ireland got a new household name as the winner of Miss Ireland was announced. Now, with the advent of the opposing Miss UNIVERSE Ireland beauty pageant, we'll have two lovely new girls to deal with on an annual basis. Question is: Can you handle it? Well, can ye...

12.06.08 Farrell Takes A Paz at Triage Wrap Party...
Colin 'Skinny Malinky Malony Legs Umbrella Feet' Farrell was noticeably absent from the wrap-party for his latest movie Triage which went down in Krystle nightclub last Friday... He probably avoided it coz he didn't want to be tempted by the demon booze or, erm, food. Ahem.

11.06.08 Is Caprice in The Family Way?
Tongues were a wagging the other night at the Miss Universe Ireland contest as Super Model Caprice stepped-out in a white gown that revealed a little belly bump... Perhaps the 36 year old US model and business woman is in the family way?

11.06.08 Keane & Claudine Do The I Do...
When the soccer star met the model... Lovebirds Robbie Keane and Claudine Palmer tied the knot at the weekend with no magazine deal and no ring-of-steel security cordon. Well, someone could have told us before we donned the cammo gear, face paint and hid in a bush for three days communicating only through bird calls and hand signals...

10.06.08 Heaton Emotional at Miss Universe Ireland...
It seems the stress and strain of a media split with husband Andy Scott-Lee has finally hit Michelle Heaton. As the rest of her crew celebrated Lynn Kelly winning the Miss Universe Ireland crown, the Liberty X singer looked tired and emotional at the black-tie event...

10.06.08 Madeleine McCann Graffiti Child Star...
It's one year on since missing child Madeleine McCann was snatched from a holiday apartment in Portugal. Since then, there has hardly been a day that she hasn't been in a newspaper or on the TV. Such has been the worldwide circulation of her photograph that her image has reached iconic status, tragically for all the wrong reasons...

10.06.08 Has Heaton Hooked An Irish Fella?
It seems there might be a very Irish reason for Michelle Heaton's extended hiatus from the UK... For the former Liberty X singer was spotted out with a strapping big fella in several clubs and pubs at the weekend. We can only assume he’s a Paddy. Andy Scott-Lee look away now...

06.06.08 Michelle Heaton Splits With Hubbie Non-Shocker...
Okay. Where to start with this one... Well, it's probably been the worst-kept-secret around Dublin's social scene. Well, Krystle nightclub at least. News just broke at UK Z-List celeb Michelle Heaton has split up with husband Andy Scott-Lee. Eh, didn't see that one coming. Duh...

05.06.08 Shane MacGowan's GOT MILK!
Shock! Horror! The bould Shane MacGowan has given up the booze and opted for a healthier lifestyle... No more Jameson, Guinness and Baileys - instead Avonmore Fresh Milk... Wait there. What’s that? No milk mustache!

04.06.08 Westlife Play A Blinder at Croker...
The lads from Westlife celebrated their 10th Birthday with a rather large party at the weekend. With 82,000 guests and venue that you could land a Jumbo Jet in, the four piece have turned from boys to men. They have even ditched those damn white suits... Or have they?

02.06.08 Gender Madness at Women's Mini Marathon...
We're not exactly scienticians here at the ShowBiz Higher Institute of Technology School (S.H.I.T.S.). But damn it, we know the difference between a lad and a lady... Seems the people over at the Flora Women's Mini Marathon could do with attending one or two of our lectures.

02.06.08 Shea Healy Ends 'Crocs Chic'...
World first here at ShowBiz Ireland folks. Usually we spot the moment when a fashion trend begins... Today we spotted the very moment when one ended - when Shea Healy decided to wear yellow Crocs to The Late Late Show. Sorry Crocs, it's over.

02.06.08 Max Weinberg & The PEE Street Band...
All eyes may have been on Bruce Springsteen this week as 'The Boss' rolled into town. But we were also keeping a look-out for his E Street Band, more specifically, Max Weinberg's damp crotch! What would Conan O'Brien say?

23.05.08 Farrell Rocks 'Luke Skywalker Chic'...
We're puzzled. Each time we spot and snap Colin Farrell on the set of his new movie 'Triage' we get another insight into the extreme lengths he is going to for this character. That doesn't explain why he was dressed up like Luke Skywalker while filming this week. Use The Force Colin.

22.05.08 Bono Gets The Warhol Treatment....
It seems that Sir Bono of Dalkey has joined the ranks of Pop Art iconized stars such as Marilyn Monroe and a tin of Campbell’s Soup by getting the Andy Warhol treatment... Only it's Andy's wingman, Steve Kaufman, that's daubing the paint about this time...

21.05.08 Farrell Causes Panic on the Streets of Dublin...
Actor in dire need of a feed, Colin Farrell, was back prowling the mean streets of Dublin last night on his latest movie 'Triage'. Yes. He's only back in Eire a hot minute and managed to snap him. In the bag baby... No. No. No. Your sincerest thanks are not even required.

20.05.08 Indiana's Alison Doody Keepin' Up with The Jones...
Actress Alison Doody was probably the nearest thing Ireland came to having a female Hollywood A-Lister when she was the leading lady in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade back in 1989. Twenty years on, she sure looks better than Harrison Ford as Indy takes to the screen once more...

19.05.08 The Louis Hits-On The Glenda...
Ireland better get ready coz pop supremo Louis Walsh is about to show us his Big Ones... Glenda Gilson has already seen Louis' Big Ones and is suitably impressed. Can we, as a Nation, handle it?

19.05.08 Andrea's Late 34th Birthday Bash...
Wee Andrea Corr aint looking half bad on her 34th Birthday; sure she could nearly pass for 33. Nay Bother. The little Corrs singer celebrated her b-day with a late session at The Late Late Show... Sure, she even hugged Pat Kenny!

16.05.08 Ronan Rocks 'WinklePicker Chic'...
Poor Ronan Keating got an awful aul slagging this week from the UK Tabs as he stepped out with his lovely yet taller wife Yvonne. Distracted by her towering frame over wee Ro, the Rags forgot to notice his Winklepicker shoes... Is 'Winklepicker Chic' back in fashion? More importantly, did it ever go away?

16.05.08 Delta Goodrem's A Silly Bitch...
Bop Bop Baby, Brian McFadden has only gone and called his better-half Delta Goodrem a "Silly Bitch!" No kidding. Really... He told the press she's a "Silly Bitch!" Yeah. A. Silly. Bitch... Bitch. Bitch. Bitch. Silly Bitch. Bitch... Did we mention he called her a "Silly Bitch?"

15.05.08 Irish Girls Go GaGa For A Romeo...
What is it about a sleek red Italian sports car that brings out Ireland's hottest young babes in their droves? All these years we've been conned by coleens telling us they want a reliable, respectful, sensitive, caring and faithful man. Balls! They all really want a hairy chested sexist brute driving an Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione and smoking a fat cigar... Damn. Knew it!

13.05.08 Farrell's Fading Away in Espania...
Oh. Dear. God. When we jokingly said Colin Farrell was starting to look like Christian Bale in The Machinist a few weeks back, little did we know he was really going to become that drastically frail... We love the whole method acting buzz but the word 'intervention' comes to mind when we saw just how emaciated the Irish actor has become... Not pretty.

13.05.08 Is Farrell Making A Paz at Vega?
Set internet rumour phaser to stun folks. We have a doozie for you today... Hornbag-to-the-stars Colin Farrell was spotted lightly caressing the arm of his co-star in Triage, Paz Vega, whilst having a private drink in Alicante. Do we need more confirmation that there's something going-on between these Spanish & Irish (Spirish) hot blooded love machines? HELL NO...

12.05.08 UK D-Listers Veet-It to Dublin...
Little-did-we-know when WE invented ShowBiz in Ireland that our hand-crafted world would become a dumping ground for the hasbeen run-off from London's social scene. With Michelle 'Liberty X' Heaton, Bianca 'Gazza' Gascoigne and Nikki 'who is she' Graham now Dublin's elite celebs – we have to ask ourselves, where did it all go wrong?

12.05.08 Celebrity Hitch Hiker Toothfairy Award: Lisa Cannon...
It's only Monday morning and we have another Celebrity Hitch Hiker Award to hand out... Yet again it goes to a damn Xpose gal - this time its Lisa Cannon's second C.H.H. honour. She made cannon-fodder of Shayne Ward at the Toothfairy Ball at the weekend. See what we did there??

09.05.08 Orlaith's Back & Going NUTS...
Irish Big Brother babe Orlaith McAllister is our total fav party-girl on the London scene. She's been brooding away for a while looking after her new born baby - but she's back, she's single and looking hot in Orange...

08.05.08 MacGowan Gets Grouchy at Groucho...
Woe-be-tied. It's not a face you would want to wake up beside on the pillow nor on a billboard advertisement for Colgate. But if you want a good picture of Shane MacGowan gritting his single tooth, point a paparazzo's camera in his mush, then back away...

07.05.08 Kooks, Coronas & Heineken Green Energy...
Jaaaysus! Doesn't time fly? It's been 13 years since the Heineken Green Energy festival kicked-off in The Point, and 12 years since it moved to Dublin Castle. At the weekend The Kooks and The Coronas wafted their tunes across the summer breeze in Temple Bar next door. No neighbours complained...

07.05.08 Boyzone Minus Duffy Plus Launch Equals?
Poor aul Keith Duffy has been having a-time-of-it lately since Boyzone decided to reunite and go back on the road. With broken bones and now a head on Duffy like John Merrick, perhaps their not-for-the-money-for-the-fans reunion tour is cursed? Someone call in Mystic Meg. Muhahaha...

06.05.08 Leinster Rugger Buggers Play at Krystle...
Leinster Rugby team celebrated their Magners League title win over Newport Gwent Dragons with a boozy night of Vodkas and Redbulls at Krystle Nightclub at the weekend. What a bunch of odd shaped balls...

Velvet voiced ex-X Factor winner Shayne Ward is going roughing-it this summer. Yes. The primped pin-up is packing the Bovril and a few tins of Spam, and hitchhiking across Ireland to support his pals Westlife when they play Galway. Thumbs-up, Shayno...

02.05.08 Van Morrison Resurfaces at Cheltenham...
Belfast singer Van 'de mon' Morrison emerged from the Killiney hide-away, he shares with Michelle Rocca, and gave a rare performance at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival this week. Oh yes, he did...

01.05.08 Ronan & Yvonne Toast to their 10th...
Ten years seems to have flown by since perpetual teenager Ronan Keating got an "I Do" out of then top model Yvonne Connolly. Last night the still very much in love couple celebrated their 10th Wedding Anniversary at Shanahans on the Green. Yes. Okay. We’re jealous...

30.04.08 JR & Sue-Ellen Reunite Irish Style...
Doesn't matter who you are or when you were born. If you live on planet Earth then you love Dallas. Fact. So what if it was made in the Eighties... It was the best soap EVER! Even better than Chris De Burgh's notorious affair with the teenage Nanny. Well, almost. Co-incidentally all parties mentioned above were on The Late Late Show at the weekend. What a link...

29.04.08 Farrell's A Papper Snapper...
With rumours circling the internet that Colin Farrell is dating a female pilot - the Irish actor is far away from the wicked-whisper mill on his latest movie 'Triage'. Carrying a piece of kit usually found in the hands of the Paparazzi that follow him, The Farreller is getting some on-the-job training...

28.04.08 Celebrity Hitch Hiker Hoofer Award: Martin & Murphy...
When Michael 'Lord of the Dance' Flatley received his 'Entertainer of the Decade' award in Dublin at the weekend, the event turned into a veritable Celebrity-Hitch-Hiker-O-Rama. For our money, gossip columnists Paul Martin & Eoin Murphy's double team on the Superhoofer ran away with our C.H.H. Award. But there were other contenders folks...

28.04.08 Mumba Shopping by the Seat of Her Pants...
Ireland's exiled 'what could have been' pop starlet Samantha Mumba was spotted out discount shopping with her Mammy in California at the weekend. We know times are hard Sam, but for only a few cents a needle-and-thread could fix the arse in those jeans luv...

25.04.08 Celebrity Hitch Hiker Hat-Trick Award: The Glenda...
When Hollywood actress Minnie Driver set out on the rocky road to Dublin, little did she know that she'd be apart of Glenda Gilson's 3rd successive Celebrity Hitch Hike. Yes, you guessed it. The Glenda has only gone and landed an unprecedented hat-trick of Celeb Hitch Hikes... Give someone else a go G. Please.

24.04.08 Michelle Doherty & The Catholic Priest's Son...
Oops! We did it again... Our mischievous eye for a tabloid friendly picture has forced wee Donegal model Michelle Doherty to deny any romance with controversial Priest’s son Ross Hamilton. She swears they are just wee good "friends" so they are...

24.04.08 Salman Rushdie Gets Shown The Gate...
Under the watchful eye of Secret Service type security, controversial author Salman Rushdie had a reading at The Gate Theatre this week... While most people there wanted to know how he lives his life under a Fatwa, we were more interested in how he pulls such hot chicks... Yes. Intellect is totally wasted on us.

23.04.08 Shaun Holds Wright-On to Wallet in Dublin...
Chelsea FC winger Shaun Wright-Phillips was in Dublin at the weekend attending the 2nd Annual Sports Ball... When the soccer star saw ShowBiz Ireland's elite paparazzi hit squad, he immediately and instinctively held on to his wallet... We wouldn't MUG you Shaun. Or would we?

22.04.08 Colin Farrell Really Slims Down for Triage...
Reformed badboy actor Colin Farrell has done a Daniel Day-Lewis on us and gone all-out to better become his character in war movie 'Triage'. It looks like our Col has dropped several Stones to portray a war weary photojournalist - think Christian Bale in 'The Machinist' skinny...

22.04.08 It's Official: Jerry Hall is Big Foot...
Texan model Jerry Hall is the former wife of Rolling Stone Mick Jagger and probably one of the most desirable women on the planet. But if you want to stay on her good side, please don't mention her HUGE FEET. Ever.

21.04.08 Amanda Brunker's A Hot Heifer...
Model Pippa O'Connor seems to have caught bovine foot-in-mouth disease by claiming she looked like a "heifer" when she was a plumper size 12. Irish media mouthpieces are now up in arms led by former Miss Ireland Amanda Brunker, who is currently looking smoking hot at healthy size 12...

21.04.08 Has Andrea Roche Had A Boob Job?
Hold on there a cotton-picking minute. We were just looking back at the Krystle afterparty photos for this year’s Meteor Awards, when these two pictures literally popped out at us... Either Andrea Roche has had some cosmetic breast enhancements or she was smuggling two large puppies up her jumper into the VIP party - well??

18.04.08 Big Brother Celebrity Hitch Hiker Award: Lisa Cannon...
Just when we though it was safe to step back into the fame-fray and pap a few celebs without being stalked by the evil Xpose girls, up pops another one! Last night we braved the Northside to snap Big Brother star Chanelle Hayes singing her debut song "I Want It", when in jumped raving reporter Lisa Cannon and Hitch Hiked her... Can we get no peace?

17.04.08 Paris Hilton Hooks An Irish Man...
It seems there is a lot more to blonde-bombshell Paris Hilton than pouting-and-primping for the hoards paparazzi that follow her... The heiress has launched a new hair and beauty product called 'The Bandit' and recruited Irish businessman Warren Logan to sell it for her. As if he’d say NO to Paris.

16.04.08 Mischa Barton & Taylor Locke Tour Dublin...
Hollywood starlet Mischa Barton brought her latest lover, Taylor Locke, to Dublin this week to show him around her Irish roots. On a no-frills-and-spills trip to the Capital, the handsome couple chose ferries and tour buses instead of 5 star hotels and private jets... It’s a revolution folks.

16.04.08 Kenny Calls Time on Gorse-Gate...
Irish broadcaster and Late Late Show presenter Pat Kenny bragged squatter's rights to an adjoining piece of land next to his Dalkey crib called 'Gorse Hill.' His neighbour screamed: "Get off my land Kenny" and the costs went into the millions... Ouch.

15.04.08 TVNow Celebrity Hitch Hiker Award: Eoin Murphy...
Finally. We get to give a Celebrity Hitch Hiker Award to someone OTHER than the girls from Xpose - our arch enemies. Only thing is, when tabloid journo Eoin Murphy CHH'd a certain celebo, it only turned out to be Xpose's Lorraine Keane! Damn those TV3 gals all the way to hell.

15.04.08 Shayne Ward Splits with Faye McKeever...
When X Factor winner Shayne Ward appeared on the final episode of The Cafe last week and said to RTE presenter Aidan Power: "What goes on in Dublin, stays in Dublin," our ears immediately pricked-up. Scratch that last comment Shayne. Not since we launched this site, waaay back in 2000, have celebrity antics gone unnoticed...

14.04.08 Carly Smithson - An Undiscovered Idol?
A tattooed Irish coleen with blue eyes, black hair and a voice to die for is causing a huge stir in the USA on hit show American Idol. Simon Cowell sure aint no fan of Carly Smithson, but we were back in 2003 when she won a Meteor Award. Undiscovered talent you say? Hmmmm...

09.04.08 Colin Farrell Mr. Sarajevo...
Irish actor Colin Farrell looked rather gaunt on a visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina this week. The 'In Bruges' star toured the former war-thorn region to get a feel for a leading role in his upcoming Danis Tanovic film called 'Triage'. Should have brought Bono, Brian Eno, Pavarotti & East 17 with him to work on the soundtrack...

08.04.08 No Charges in Katy French Death...
According to reports in the Irish media no one will face charges over the tragic death of model Katy French. Despite links between the 24-year-old and a known Dublin drug dealer, Garda do not seem to have enough solid evidence to proceed with a prosecution...

08.04.08 Myleene's Klass Irish Shindig...
UK celebrity, classical musician and TV presenter Myleene Klass has certainly taken to her new extended Irish family.

07.04.08 Brian Picks A Winner in Delta...

06.04.08 Rosanna Eyes Up Miss Universe Crown...
According to reports in the Sunday Papers, former Miss World Rosanna Davison is considering a double tiara whammy by going for the Miss Universe 2008 title.

04.04.08 Banderas is Neeson's Other Man...

Shield your eyes folks, former Westlife singer Brian McFadden is at it again - making ill-informed choices when it comes to his unique sense of fashion. We spotted him in Australia last week wearing a Man Bag and BLUE cowboy boots. Oh. Dear. God.

31.03.08 Miss Universe Ireland Hots Up...
The Irish media are having a field-day with the defection of Andrea Roche from the Miss Ireland contest over to the Miss Universe Ireland contest.

29.03.08 Cheesy Celebrity Hitch Hiker Award: Glenda Gilson...
We're sorta in strange territory with our infamous 'Celebrity Hitch Hiker' awards, as they've become a badge of honour to those cheeky media types who know what we're up to...

Finally. There's a very special woman in the west-life of gay pop icon Mark Feehily. Except... She walks on all-fours, could do with 6 or 7 face-lifts, tends to drool, and don't even get us started on waxing. Meet Saffy...

Wee shiny faced Irish 'comedian' Patrick Kielty was spotted out for dinner recently with actual funny guy David Walliams.

17.03.08 It's Official: Lisa Murphy is NOT a Drag Queen...
Perhaps VIP Magazine owner Michael Doherty was hoping for some Blogorrah-esque kudos from his former partner John Ryan when he quipped Lisa Murphy 'looked like a man in drag,' at the style awards last week?

It was nearly a case of handbags V Nike Air Max at high noon as two former Irish Big Brother contestants, Brian Dowling & Spiral, got all hot and bothered over a public TV prank recently...

03.03.08 Preggers Celebrity Hitch Hiker Award: Sybil Mulcahy...
True Celebrity Hitch Hiking is an art form in the purest sense folks. It's a delicate thing, a fragile thing. Even dare to whisper its name, and it's gone – Poof. But we dare, oh yes. And on those rarest of occasions when we witness it, we scream "Hosanna in a Hiace" and genuflect like the Bejaysus... Sybil Mulcahy you are a pregnant-princess among TV presenters, when you CHH'd Elle Macphearson we saw divinity. Nay, we saw the truth. Witness...

Here at ShowBiz Ireland we've always prided ourselves as being a bastion of the truth in the murky quagmire of shoddy tabloid journalism. Thus, we got right to the bottom of the recent Colin Farrell ring debacle. And we didn't have to go all the way to Mordor with two bloody Hobbits to solve this one either. JRR Tolkien take note.

28.02.08 The 23: Ireland's New Model Mafia

27.02.08 Did Brian Dowling Eat ALL the Pies at The Meteors?
It was all-go at the Krystle afterparty for this year's Meteor Awards. Amid the hoards of screaming celebrities we noticed that Big Brother star Brian 'trolley-dolly' Dowling has, how do we say this politely, put on a little bit of weight. Actually, scratch that... He’s a fat fecker!

26.02.08 McFadden Tries 'Skinny Jeans Chic' and Fails...
Oh Dearie Me. Poor aul Brian 'take me serious, I'm an artist' McFadden hasn't got it going on in the fashion stakes. Actually, he never did. Lately, he's been trying to adopt the Russell Brand Skinny Jeans look and missing-the-mark by a mile. Sorry. By several thousand miles...

25.02.08 IFTA Celebrity Hitch-Hiker Award Goes To: Lorraine Keane...
Here at ShowBiz Ireland we're noticed a certain phenomenon amongst members of the Irish media. A phenomenon we're calling "Celebrity Hitch-Hiking." It occurs when a journalist or a TV presenter or an Up-and-Comer grabs a well known celeb and hitches their wagon to the stardust emanating from their far-more-famous target, thus stealing a tiny twinkle of their limelight. At this year's IFTAs we're giving the CHH Award to TV3's Xpose presenter Lorraine Keane for sticking out her thumb and catching a ride with Bo Derek...

Given that the celebrity couple WE labelled "Wesanna" (aka Wesley Quirke & Rosanna Davison) can now be hired-out for Weddings, Sweet 16's & Bar Mitzvahs - we reckon it's time for the successive rise of "Marleigh" (aka Marcus Sweeney & Leigh Arnold) & "Bodman" (aka Brian O'Driscoll & Amy Huberman)...
