Jessica Simpson's Shopping Binge
Plus: Keanu Reeves, Charlie O'Connell and more
After the week she had, Jessica Simpson certainly deserved a little retail therapy – and she got just that at the Beauty Collection Apothecary. A day after a Web site erroneously reported that she and husband Nick Lachey had filed for divorce, the Dukes of Hazzard star went on a spree May 25 at the posh store near her Calabasas, Calif., home.
There, the singer-actress snagged several Votivo candles in Red Currant, a source tells us, and she treated herself to products from the Epicuren skincare line, including the Volcanic Clay Masque and Medicated Acne Cleanser. Rounding out her purchases: a Prestige bronzer, to maintain that sun-kissed glow, and a Tweezerman pumice stone, to keep her tootsies smooth.
Table for Two
Keanu Reeves was recently out and about with a lady friend, but it wasn’t Lynn Collins, the actress (and his costar in the upcoming drama Il Mare) with whom he’s been romantically linked.
The actor, dressed in a black shirt and jacket, was spotted sitting with a blonde companion at a table in the back of the Ivy at the Shore restaurant in Santa Monica. No low-carb diet for him: Along with sipping Ivy gimlets, he shared a huge plate of onion rings and balanced it with a salad. For dessert, Reeves ordered ice cream and fruit with a side of whipped cream. And he seemed to be in a celebratory mood, our source tells us. The pair finished off their meal with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Champagne.
