Malibu Chronicle Gets Some Strange Love

Olivia Newton-John‘s daughter Chloe Lattanzi is making waves with a controversial new music video, “Play with Me.” It shows her committing willful suicide by immersing herself in a tub filled with electrical appliances.

But FishbowlLA was much more fascinated with the guy sitting on the toilet right next to her at the beginning of the video. Never mind the fact that he appears to still be in the middle of doing his business. What amazed us the most is that his attention is held by the newspaper he is reading, rather than by a girlfriend offing herself a few feet away.

USC Grad Has Soft Spot for ‘Nation’s Most Revolting Fitness Club’

For the brand new Zócalo Square feature “Where I Go”, recent USC masters in writing grad Meghan Lewit decided to write up her gym.

This is no Pilates or yoga haven. Rather, it’s a 24-Hour Fitness in a Koreatown office building that has reviewers on Yelp reaching for the negative slams. Lewit shows a comical flair for description, dubbing the fitness room as being like the set of “an Olivia Newton John video” and sharing the humiliation of “being pitied by a fellow member of a [higher ranked LA area] 24-Hour Fitness.” But there’s a silver lining:

My gym brings together a genuine cross-section of the city. There are lots of Asians, many Latinos, a handful of blacks, a few whites, some Indians, and even the occasional Borat-like patron of mysterious origin. You might even say that my gym is the city of Los Angeles.

Saturday Night Aussie Fever?

We couldn’t help notice a tantalizing juxtaposition on the list of confirmed attendees for this Saturday’s G’Day USA Australia Week black-tie gala dinner. The January 22nd event at the Hollywood Palladium, a.k.a. the “Aussie Ball,” is part of a sly annual PR extravaganza staged by the Australian Consulate-General.

Among the three Australians to be inducted in the G’Day Hall of Fame is Bee Gee Barry Gibb (pictured). He will be introduced by Olivia Newton-John, while actress Abbie Cornish will get her award from Zach Snyder and tennis champ Roy Emerson will be framed by Andre Agassi.

Say Hello to the Beverly Hills Bedbug

In Los Angeles, even a story about an impending west coast infestation of bedbugs can easily have a celebrity twist to it.

Among the places the blood-sucking scourge has started turning up on the west coast is Beverly Hills retail. What’s more, per a disturbing December 4th article in the LA Times, the person hired to deal with the Golden Triangle incident was not simply an exterminator. Rather, Mike Masterson is a Discovery Channel reality TV star and former celebrity bodyguard for the likes of Joan Rivers and Olivia Newton-John.
