Lamar OdomKhloe Kardashian's estranged husband has moved to Spain.

Lamar Odom, who was served divorce papers from the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star in December following months of rumors he was addicted to crack cocaine and cheated on her with several different women, has temporarily relocated from Los Angeles to the Basque city of Vitoria-Gasteiz, after signing a contract to play basketball for Laboral Kutxa.

A spokesperson for the team told UsMagazine.com that the ex-LA Lakers player, 34, has been signed for two months with an option to extend to the end of the season.

The former Khloe & Lamar star arrived in Spain today and his presentation as a new player will take place later this week. "He will probably be a spectator at the match and introduced to the crowd during half-time," an insider added.

2010 Golden Globe Nominations (Film)

Up in the Air

The 2009-10 awards season kicked into high gear this morning with the official announcement of the nominations. The event - which will be hosted by funnyman Ricky Gervais - will take place just over two weeks before the Academy Award contenders are revealed.

Here are some of the noteworthy mentions from this year’s list of film nominees:

  • leads all film nominations with six. The musical Nine follows with five while Avatar and Inglourious Basterds tied with four.
  • As expected, Meryl Streep has received another two mentions—unfortunately, they are both in the Comedy category (Julie & Julia, It’s Complicated). On the surprising end, Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side, The Proposal) and Matt Damon (Invictus, The Informant) both have two nominations as well—thankfully, in different categories.
  • Talk about drama! An ex-husband and wife will be competing against each other in the Best Director race. (Avatar‘s James Cameron and The Hurt Locker‘s Kathryn Bigelow.)
  • Despite backing from both Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey, is not a contender for Best Film. Mo’Nique and Gabourey Sidibe were both recognized for their excellent acting though.

The 67th Golden Globe Awards airs Jan. 17 on NBC.

Spain Slaps Saw VI with X Rating

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Horror, Sequels, Distribution,

Saw VIWell, they don’t call it torture porn for nothing.

Although previous installments of Saw have done well in Spain, the franchise’s sixth installment will be facing a large hurdle. The Spanish Culture Ministry’s Film Institute, the country’s equivalent to the MPAA, has just given an X rating.

The label - the first one Spain’s ever stamped on a movie for violence - limits the number of theaters the film can be shown in to eight. (Buenavista had hoped to distribute 300 copies of the sequel.) Previous Saw entries were simply considered “not under 18.”

Buenavista has filed an appeal on the decision.

Lisbon Bus With GPS

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: GPS, Transportation,

Lisbon GPSClever Spain has installed GPS navigation systems in buses that go from the airport to the Lisbon’s center. One is placed in the front and one is in the middle of the vehicle. Partially designed for the driver, riders can see a list of stops on the way there. We guess the only problem is that the signal can be lost in case of a narrow street or going through a tunnel. We hope other cities adopt this idea for travelers who are navigationally challenged.

Someone Ryders Away with Winona’s Jewels

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: D-List, Movies, Legal Issues, Rumors,

Winona Ryder is being investigated by police after a theft resulted in the loss of jewels worth $125,000. The rocks were Winona’s…kinda.

A diamond-encrusted Bulgari bracelet and ring, on loan to the actress for her use during a Marie Claire magazine party, have mysteriously come up missing in Spain. The actress (who has been almost totally off the radar for the last several years - who the hell decided to give her jewelry?) was convicted in 2001 of shoplifting. This is in no way related to this current jewel threat, but does bear mentioning.

Police involved with the case have not commented. Reps for Ryder have likewise offered no comment - giving the press free reign to speculate wildly. Let the gossip begin.

Panda Chair Recycles CDs

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Design, Household, Misc. Tech,

Panda Chair

Next time you receive those useless CDs from AOL, do what Spanish Designer Belen Hermosa did with his Panda Chair. It was recently unveiled at the International Furniture Fair in Valencia.  We’re not sure about the comfort factor, but the idea is a viable one. If you score enough of the useless discs, you could probably build an entire living room suite, including end tables and ottomans. Then you could recover your patio deck, build furniture for the kids’ treehouse, and start selling items at swap meets. Just you wait, IKEA, you have tentative competition.
