paltrow twitter

Who needs celebrity magazines and paparazzi when you have Twitter.

Stars have taken it upon themselves to give the public a glimpse into their private (and not so private) lives.

The Daily Beast has collected shots of Rachel Zoe stuffing herself, Pauly D getting a lap dance, and Tara Reid (naturally) tweeting her honeymoon.

content=”A very pregnant Jessica Alba appeared on Lopez Tonight to discuss her upcoming flick Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World. She tweeted, “Guess what show I was on when I posted my very first tweet?” Besides jumping on the Twitter bandwagon, Alba discussed her pregnancy and her consequent food craving: watermelon. As the starlet counts down the days until she is scheduled to give birth in September, she said, “All I want is watermelon. I dream about watermelon, I do. I really do.””

content=”It’s moments like this that explain why Pauly D spends 25 minutes on his hair–he’s got to look good when Britney Spears straddles him in front of thousands of fans. After he was given a flashy lap dance, while handcuffed, during Spears’s Femme Fatale tour stop in Montreal, the Jersey Shore star tweeted, “Yup That Did Happen loll …” Besides being a reality-show sensation, Pauly D is launching his deejaying career, as he tours with Spears and films a spinoff show about his music career.”

content=”Jane Fonda was also featured on Charlie Rose to promote her new book, Prime Time. She tweeted, “From my interview with @CharlieRose which airs tonight at 11PM.” In her new book, Fonda explains her struggle with an eating disorder even as she launched her incredibly successful fitness program: “By the time I started my Workout business I was not engaging in my food addiction, but I was not healed, either. I guess I was the equivalent of a dry drunk (but for food, not alcohol): One who is sober but has not worked through a twelve-step program.””

content=”Jimmy Kimmel posed behind a sculpture of legendary Cubs shortstop Ernie Banks. Kimmel tweeted, “Batting behind Ernie Banks at Wrigley Field.” They say practice makes prefect–well, Kimmel has certainly practiced this stance once before. He did it with the real Ernie Banks back in 2003–but instead of standing behind Banks, he nearly groped him. At least this time, Kimmel kept his hands to himself.”
