With 600,000 Canadians living in Los Angeles, it could almost be considered the sixth largest Canadian city. One of our more infamous celebrity transplants was back home in Canada last Thursday night to watch the Canucks shut out the New York Rangers. Pamela Anderson arrived via Whistler to watch the game and titillate the crowd, but did so sans recent husband, Rick Salomon.
Salomon — you may recall — is the man who made a sex tape with Paris Hilton. It seems as though after Pam professed her undying love for the budding porn star, that the honeymoon has ended little more than two months after the wedding. Apparently Pam forgot the old axiom about the inevitability of death and taxes, as Us Weekly is now reporting that she recently served Salomon with divorce papers; he was allegedly spotted packing up his stuff and clearing out of the house late last week.
Surrey/White Rock stand still for Keanu: Break out your cameras if you live around the playing field at Crescent Park in South Surrey or in White Rock, as Filming with Keanu Reeves for The Day The Earth Stood Still is scheduled to take place in these locales from today until Jan. 22. Residents received a letter indicating that the production hopes to film, using large lighting cranes, between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. each night during those dates.
Meanwhile, it’s been confirmed that Battlestar Galactica star Aaron Douglas will appear as a character named Sgt. Winter in the film.
Kreuk involved in shepherding new website venture: Kristin Kreuk is keeping plenty busy these days. Together with her Smallville co-star Allison Mack and local actresses Nicki Clyne (Battlestar Galactica) and Sarah Edmondson (Edgemont), Kreuk is venturing into cyberspace, building a new website geared toward college students. While the raison d’être of the site remains a bit of a mystery, Kreuk did offer a few clues about its purpose during a recent interview with Kryptonsite.com. “...what we want to do is provide a bunch of services for college students as well as an environment where they can really explore themselves and what they want to see in the world, and what they do, and really communicate with each other.”
Given how we began this column, it’s always nice to see Canadian celebrities doing something constructive for the greater community.
