Happy New Year

That is it for this time around. The next reveals will be on July 4th so hope you will be around for them. Hey, it is only six short months from now.

Since I have all of you here, I wanted to take a moment to thank each one of you for making this past year the best ever. I think the site has come a long way in this past year and all of you keep making it the best. The site would be nothing with out all of you. I know that, understand that, and appreciate that. Through your e-mails, comments, tips, and everything else you do, this blog is really all about you. I'm just the guy who gets the conversation started.

I need to thank some people who help get that conversation started and who seem to always be there to lend their support or encouragement or material. These are in no particular order.

Marc Malkin at E!.
Michael K at Dlisted
All of the people at Gawker and Defamer
Kate at Celebitchy
Spicy at CelebritySmack
Everyone at the NY Daily News and the Daily Mirror
New York Magazine


All of the people who have contributed this year, whether it was something regular, a one time review, or just a tip. There are lots of days I just have no idea what to write about, and magically some tip or article or suggestion will show up in my inbox and it gets me going. I would list you individually, but as soon as I do that, I know I would forget someone and inevitably tick you off, so just know that I am grateful for everything and everyone.

When I think about the assignments I have found for people to write about over the year, I can't help but think about poor Richard who was singled out at The Wackness for removal. Poor guy didn't know what he was in for being associated with the site, but he came back and wanted to write more. For all of the "celebrities" you saw posing with signs some were like Elijah Wood who ran away screaming when they saw them come out. OK, most ran away screaming. So, I appreciate those writers in New York and LA who kept asking anyway.

To all my spies and tipsters and friends of the site, thanks for keeping all the good gossip coming and for taking the time to report things when you see them.

To all of you are who reading this, I hope that 2009 is the year that you have always wanted. The year where your hopes and dreams come true. The year where every resolution happens and you make no mistakes. A year where you don't suffer or see pain. A year where everything is exactly as you would have dreamed. Thanks again for a great 2008. I really do appreciate each of you.

ENT you should have revealed the recent blind about the actress who purposely fed peanuts to her allergic friend. That bitch needs to be outed.

ms snarky said...

I am desperate to find out. :)

Thank you so much Enty! Your site is something that I look forward to every evening. Your self-deprecating humor, honesty and delicious gossip bring so much entertainment to not only myself, but so many others as well. Here's wishing you a healthy & happy 2009!

Heather Matthews said...

Thanks for the hours of amazing entertainment, best gossip site on the Net, hands down. Happy New Year.

farmgirl said...

Hey Enty -
Thank you so much for providing a much needed outlet to me and the rest of the crew here.
Somehow reading your site every night brings me back to where I need to be.
Thanks for doing such a bang-up job.
Best to you in 2009.

icywench said...

I hope your hopes and dreams come true too Ent. You're a doll. Thank you for a great New Years!

jagerlilly said...

Ent, thanks for all the entertainment. 2008 was spent mostly unemployed and your site gave me something to smile and laugh about when the bills came due. All the best in 2009!

Janelle said...

Enty, thank you so much for a wonderful site, and I really appreciate all these great reveals!!!

Caroline said...

Thanks Enty! All the best to you and yours!

Miss X said...

Ent, Happy New Year! Thanks for spending the first day of the year indulging my gossip vice. I especially loved the Ben Afleck reveal.

I hope you have a wonderful year. Thanks again for providing me with an escape at the end of every workday.

Geebz said...

Ent, after a hard day at a job that takes all but my soul, I come here and read about the shenanigans that go on in Holly Weird and I feel a bit better.

Thanks for all that you do and I hope that '09 provides you with all you need and all that you want. Best wishes and keep it going!

kimi said...

Thanks for the Enty and for all that contribute to great conversations!

trashtalker said...

Thanks, Ent. Those were very satisfying reveals. (I'm still wondering about David and Tea, though.)

You're the best blogger ever!

Chatty said...

Thanks Enty- this was a good one!!

Happy New Year and here's to more gossip and fun smut in 2009.

Impertinent Vixen said...

Thanks for all the entertainment, Enty!!! I don't know how I would cope without you and MichaelK!

jax said...

lutefisk said...

Thank you Enty. What an enjoyable way to welcome in 2009.

DNfromMN said...

Back at ya, Enty! You're the best.

Sarah Jane said...

Thanks for this awesome site Enty. As cliche and cheesy as it sounds, this site makes my day a little bit better :) Knowing there are people out there more screwed up than me always makes me smile.

acatvbee said...

Thanks again for all that you do, Enty. Your "bacon" makes our work day so much more interesting. May 2009 fulfill you to your heart's content!

Ehjah said...

Debutante said...

Brand new to your fantastic site --and I mean brand new as of today ! What a fabulous New Year this is gonna be ! Happy New Year to you Ent! xoxo Deb

Allie said...

Thank you Enty for posting this last entry. By far it was the most touching, most revealing, and the most generous thing you could have said. I read daily and comment rarely but I appreciate all that you do (professionally and personally).
Happy New Year and best wishes to you and yours. I hope in 2009 you get that girl...

Blondie said...

thanks for making my day, smoches to you in 2009 ENT. best reveal was Mae West, what do you guys think?

Blondie said...

i meant smootches. geez, drinking beer all day really does mess with your skills

Ms. said...

Back at you Enty. I hope 2009 frees both you and the (womens) shoes from your parent's basement.

Debutante said...

Oh yeah BLONDIE, that Mae West one was great ! Second was Ben Affleck !

brendalove@gmail.com said...

Thanks ENT, for all you do!

Manda said...

Thanks enty for your site, and allowing for the blossoming of a wonderful little community through CDAN. The year has been tumultous for me, with the ending of a long term relationship and a job that while important, takes all my energy.

Combine that with study and I am grateful for the few moments each day i take to read through this site, the gossip and especially the comments that have made me burst out in hysterical laughter more then once.

I hope everyone's 2009 is wonderful and all your wishes come true:)

- Amanda

ffleur said...

Awww Enty - best wishes to you too for 2009. I predict you will make enough money to move out of the basement soon. Reach for the stars baby!

I've been reading for a few months but today is the first day I've commented. I was up at 8am checking for those reveals and you were right on schedule at 9am *ding* there was the first one.

The fact you like and converse with MichaelK. makes you even better in my book. He likes to sound tough but he has a soft heart, is hilariously funny, doesn't want to be famous, and loves animals. What more could we ask for?

After a hard day in the 7th ring of hell (also knows as my workplace) there is nothing better than checking into Crazy Days and Crazy Nights and reading about trashy celebs to make me feel morally superior and happier with my life. So thanks Enty.

Dee said...

Thanks for starting my '09 off on a great note, Ent!!! You really are the best. Hope you and all my fellow CDANers have a wonderful New Year!!!

Bad Momma said...

Happy New Year to you too! Hope it's a good one for you.

Love the round the clock reveals today! Fantastic job!!!

Tom said...

You've got the best 'tone' of any of the blogs out there, reflecting the person behind it. Thanks and happiest of new years!

KellyLynn said...

I have said it many times recently, but count me among the many who appreciate you, Enty, and this site in general. It's definitely one of the smartest celeb gossip sites around.

jrp74 said...

Thanks for the reveals! Happy New Year! I am so hoping you reveal the vagina art collector in July. I think I read that here somewhere. lol

newsgrrl said...

Love the site... when I come home from playing real-life newspaper editor the first thing I do when I fire up the Mac is visit your site. Excellent work, Enty, you make me smile!

David D. said...

Happy New Year, Enty, and best wishes for a great gossip-filled 2009 for you and your friends and loved ones.

(And, of course, a big shout-out to the charming and talented Olivia Thirlby! 'Wackness' indeed.)

hotchacha said...

Oh Enty,

Thank you so much for this fabulous blog! It's such a treat to pop in every day -- or several times every day -- and read all of these juicy tidbits. Brightens my day!

Wishing you all the best for 2009,

-Hotchacha

triunfopark said...

Enty, I know we'd be really happy together!

Lothar said...

So...

No gay rumors revealed in the year end reveals???????????

Lots of charity work revealed. Good PR.

And oh so juicy!
/sarcasm

Christine said...

xoApril said...

Susan said...

What a let down. Done with this site.

daquirigoddess said...

Thank you for all the hard work. Had a lot of fun reading tonight after the in laws left:) Happy New Year and drink a few for me this weekend since I am pregnant.

kimishoe said...

Super long time reader here, though I rarely ever post.
Just wanted to say thanks for keeping us entertained! Days tend to get kind of gloomy and I know I can come here to get a little pick me up when I need it.

becki626 said...

So happy I found this blog ENT,
my laundry,dusting, cooking,cleaning, coherent conversations with family members-not so happy-but all worth it...

Kelli said...

Enty, i guess- thanks- but I must say I'm a bit disappointed. Not too juicy this time around. Must say it was kind of a lame. All kindness, which was nice but nothing shocking.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Great reveals, mucho gracias, ENT!

M. Erring said...

No thanks for Lainey? Why?

tania said...

Right back atcha, Enty!

Have a great new year, everybody.

All the same for you in 2009, and may the BI's be juicier, fiercer and much more scandalous!

Love ya BIG GUY

Harriet Hellfire said...

I could've sworn I posted in this one yesterday...but apparently not. Just wanted to say thanks! And Happy New Year!

kathryn said...

Too busy to read during day yesterday, so TYVM for 
brightening my New Year's Day a little late, but 
soooooo wort˙ the wait.

Here's to 2009!  May the celebs continue to behave
badly!  

KDrockstarfromMN said...

I'm coming out of lurker mode for 2009, but I've been a fan/reader since 2007. You have written me through serious illnesses and spells of unemployment, but I have known I can count on you and the others at CDAN to lift my spirits. So, thanks to *all* of you, especially Enty.

I think 2009 is the year for every blind to be Alec Baldwin, now that we've gotten our Ben Affleck gift for Christmas.

AphraelDanae said...

Enty, thanks for a very entertaining 2008, and I look forward to 2009. All the best to you and all the CDAN readers :)

Chees!

Hilarious that he's friends with Spicy at CelebritySmackBlog. Her site is subpar, the header goes through numerous changes and all of them look like they belong on Photoshop Disasters, and she spends a lot of time trying to prove that she's not ugly and not enough time actually writing (Btw Spicy, you are in fact hideous, no matter how cute you think your new hair makes you look. Your face still looks stretched, your makeup is all wrong, and you're not genetically blessed). Lame sites stick together I guess! lol@ the person who said Enty's blog has the best "voice".

mngddess said...

I didn't read them yeaterday so I would have something to read at my new, incredibly dull job.

Big kisses - love ya!

Thanks a bunch for the awesome reveals!

For those of you supposedly "leaving", don't let the door hit you on the way out. Toodles.

hotchacha said...

Oh and Enty,

BIG smooches for taking care of that pesky loading glitch! Makes is so much easier for us CDAN junkies to mainline.

xo,

not on my dollar said...

Thanks Enty for making this a friendly blogger site. You were my best entertainment for the day. I blogged all day instead of watching boring television until I had to stop and entertain the "loved ones".

Looking forward to a New Year of gossip and reveals.

I too am very grateful for the kindness. Please keep it coming.

Annie said...

ENTY - You rock! As many others have said, there is just something wonderful about coming to your site after a crappy day at work and hearing of all the craziness and sometimes, good things, that the folks in Hollywood are up to. Here's hoping that 2009 is your best year yet and that all of your dreams come true.

bramblewitch said...

Thanks for all the gossip ENTY. I visit several times a day and it helps to keep me sane in a sucky job.

califblondy said...

Eeeek, I've been on vacation since mid-December and I'm still playing catch-up.

I do appreciate all the hard work that goes into this blog and anybody who doesn't or bitches about the reveals needs to get their own damn blog.

I look forward to posting in '09. I wish everyone a happy, healthy and snarky New Year.

Big kiss to you Ent.

Manger1 said...

Nice reveals, but why only "gee these celebrities are so benevolent and sugarly sweet nice" reveals? the only juicy thing was an ancient Affleck thing we all knew already and maybe Tina and Alec hating each other. I never knew Vin Diesal was so nice until you told me (he hasn't even been on my radar in years). Were you concerned about lawsuits this time around?

Katja said...

I'm ready to plunge into the reveals- thansk in advance and Happy New Year to ALL!
Thanks for the entertainment Enty :)
