FEMALE POWER

Don’t mess with Cameron Diaz, at least when it comes to her friends. During the around the world media blitz for her latest bomb Sex Tape, the actress called in to Australia’s KIIS 106.5’s Kyle & Jackie O show, and cut short an interview with co-host Kyle Sandilands after he made a comment about her Charlie’s Angels costar Drew Barrymore. Sandilands remarked that the girl in the raunchy comedy ( Giselle Eisenberg) reminded him of Barrymore in ET, adding snarkily that he hoped she didn’t go down the same path of drug use. Diaz hit back: “I’m sure, Kyle, you’ve never been through a drug phase, have you? Or alcoholism or anything like that? Pretty clean; always did it right? Congratulations,” then cut the interview short and hung up.

KOOKING WITH KRIS

Since The Kardashians are a household name, this new project makes sense: Reality matriarch Kris Jenner has a cookbook in the works: In the Kitchen with Kris: A Kollection of the Kardashian-Jenner Family Favorites from Gallery Books . Yes, on occasion these people do not patronize the hottest restaurants. The preview cover shows Kris with a pasta salad and slice of pie. Carbs? Mon dieu!

NEW GUY

By the looks of it, Zooey Deschanel has moved on from her divorce from Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard. Pics on JustJared.com show the actress on the set of her latest film Rock the Kasbah in Sherman Oaks, California, embracing a handsome man in between takes. Rumor has it he is screenwriter Jamie Linden ( We Are Marshall).

LET IT GROW

In the truth is stranger than fiction department, Los Angeles Councilman Tom LaBonge said that the pine tree planted in 2004 in memory of George Harrison will be replanted shortly because the original tree died as the result of an insect infestation. Yes, the George Harrison Tree was killed by beetles. Harrison likely would have been amused at the irony. He once said his biggest break in life was getting into the Beatles; his second biggest was getting out.
