Jennifer Tilly, an a pile of her poker winnings.

Many people enjoy keep tabs on the comings and goings of various celebrities. They often lead lives that we find interesting because they are much more glamorous than our own. However, sometimes the things celebrities enjoy doing really aren’t that different than the things we enjoy. For instance, casino gambling is one activity that seems to appeal to celebrities. It is entirely possibly when spending an evening out at the casino that you could spot a celebrity.

Poker is one particular casino game that many celebrities find appealing. Many celebrities are well known for their poker playing prowess. One of the most skilled is actor Ben Affleck. He is known to frequent poker rooms designed exclusively for high rollers. He also won the California State Poker Championship about a decade ago. Often celebrities will play poker to raise money for charity. One event is the Celebrity Poker Showdown which has featured actors like Matthew Perry. Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former president Bill Clinton, has also been known to enjoy poker playing to raise money for charity. Actress Ashley Judd is also a familiar face in celebrity poker tournaments. This southern beauty can be spotted at casinos in various locations.

Other celebrities have been part of poker tournament. Actor, Brad Pitt, was once a player on the Grand Poker Series. He played remarkably well and finished in third place. Pitt was one of the stars of the Ocean’s 11 movie which featured casinos in it. His fellow stars also can be found enjoying gambling in the casino. George Clooney is well known as a skilled gambler. While Clooney is known to play various games, he has a preference for poker. Many celebrities find poker to be rather thrilling given the mental aspect that is part of the game, but you’re more likely to see them in a land-based casino as opposed to an online one like due to the glam

and THIS is why they call it “fierce”

Marta Marzotto

Marta Marzotto

Italian designer Marta Marzotto is indeed the epitome of fierce, and if you doubt it, she will most likely shiv a bitch, this ex-Countess having been sentenced to hard prison time for blithely making off with her almost-stepson’s patrimony. As if that weren’t enough, she’s related to my beloved Lapo! Why, she’s like a lost Gabor sister! Who’s to say those booties don’t conceal a tracking anklet of some kind? Just as soon as I reconfigure the DEW Line to trace Julian Assange’s movements, I’ll take a quick peek around Milan for Marta M. and let you know. We should probably keep an eye on this one.

She looks like she’d take her vodka neat, so let’s toast this crazy old cougar with some Cougar Juice Vodka and some gossip links.

I know, I know.

I don’t CARE! I like him anyway: he purty. I propose a toast to Ben Affleck’s enduring aethetic appeal, and to make that toast we shall raise a glass of this newfangled Brewmaster’s Black Lager from Okanagan Springs that I just tasted today, as I was being interviewed for a podcast in the back room of a pub, which is generally the way I like to be interviewed if it can’t be on the deck of my shiny new yacht or the terrace of my beach villa in Costa Rica. Yes, black lager; that is what I call affirmative action, and I intend to affirm it as frequently as my diet will allow. This has been an un-paid-for plug inspired by Ben Affleck’s hawtness. You may now return to your regular gossip links.
