CELEBRITY UNDERCOVER ALERT AT LAX!

We’re not sure who to admire most – heavily disguised Jaden Smith and his practical transportation at LAX, or the eagle-eyed paparazzi who recognized him. Jaden‘s suitcase converts into a scooter so he can move quickly through the crowd. Maybe THAT’s what tipped off the photographers – not many passengers ride their suitcase to the departure gate. If Jaden were a girl, we’d suspect he had some sort of fresh cosmetic procedure, but HIS motivation is anybody’s guess…

DIANA ROSS IS NOT SINGING THE BLUES

2018 is shaping up to be a good year for Diana Ross. She’s looking forward to her performances in Hawaii in January, and Las Vegas in February. She arrived at LAX with a whole new demeanor – in the past she’s been photographed at the airport looking messy and distracted – hiding and scampering away from paparazzi or even being pushed in a wheelchair. This weekend she looks pretty and happy.

DITA VON TEESE KNOWS HOW TO TRAVEL IN STYLE

No wonder the paparazzi are falling all over each other to get a shot of Dita Von Teese arriving at LAX from London – she always travels like it’s 1965. Passengers used to dress UP to travel and if they looked really spiffy, they were often bumped up to first class when there were empty seats. You’ll never catch Dita traveling in sweats like most celebrities – she always looks like a runway model. (We love that designer trench coat – Galliano?) Dita has a series of burlesque performances scheduled in Los Angeles and San Francisco for the next few weeks. Her shows are delightful – highly recommended.

SNOOP DOGG IS DRESSED TO KILL

And they say passengers don’t dress up for airplane flights like they used to! Snoop Dogg doesn’t mind being noticed in his jaunty attire as he rushes to catch a flight at LAX . We especially love the scarf bandanna tied on his head. If any fans get too carried away, Snoop has a burly friend right beside him. Snoop has a history of being “detained” at airports for having various contraband in his luggage, but apparently he has learned how to pack sensibly.

EVERYBODY OUT OF THE WAY! HERE COMES HALLE BERRY!

Halle Berry and her family had barely touched down at LAX when the histrionics began. A police escort was waiting to walk them through the terminal to their car. Olivier Martinez warned the paparazzi and everyone else to keep their distance. Halle clutched little Maceo and threw a coat over Nahla’s head. Olivier was carrying a child’s car seat and when he thought a man got too close to his family, he whacked him with the seat! The man turned out to be an airport employee and he says he intends to press charges.

KATHERINE HEIGL IS IN A MOTHERLY STATE OF MIND

State of Affairs star Katherine Heigl has not built a pleasant reputation in Hollywood – those stories about her being inconsiderate and temperamental on sets just won’t go away. (We did hear that her ever-present momager was responsible for much of the fuss.) Vaguely negative feelings we had about her fell way when we learned that she is an active animal advocate and has as many as eight dogs of her own. She has also adopted two cute little girls – Nancy is from South Korea and Adalaide is from the US. (Above, Katherine is holding Nancy’s hand and the nanny is carrying Adalaide at LAX.)

Ray Liotta, 59, appears to have a new girlfriend – they were photographed getting off a plane together at LAX. The woman has not been identified but rumors are already circulating that Ray’s girlfriend is pregnant. Indeed, she’s wearing a loose fitting shirt and blocking her midsection with a jumbo handbag. But, hey, let’s not get carried away. Ray’s currently working on a TV miniseries, “Texas Rising” about how the Texas Rangers were created.

SALMA HAYEK: HAPPINESS IS A WARM PUPPY

Salma Hayek just arrived at LAX from Paris and she was met at the gate by a very excited companion. Not her husband Francois-Henri Pinault. Her warm welcome came from her wiggly new puppy which a bodyguard brought to the airport. Salma admits she is crazy for animals – last time she counted she had 9 dogs – and she can afford to keep them all in style.

DIANA ROSS WAS HAPPILY ROLLING ALONG UNTIL SHE SAW THE PAPS

Diana Ross is never easy to figure out. She touched down at LAX and was met with a wheelchair. She was wearing what appears to be the biggest wig she owns, and a comfy pair of Uggs. (We’d hate to have her sit in front of us at the movies.) Naturally the paparazzi noticed that hair coming a mile away and ran across the terminal to take photos. Diana didn’t want to be seen in the wheelchair because she hopped right up and walked the rest of the way, looking quite healthy. Good thing- she’s booked for a US concert tour this month.

ANGELINA JOLIE KEEPS HER COOL AS USUAL DESPITE COMMOTION

All hell breaks loose when Angelina Jolie and some of her kids arrive at LAX. The paparazzi go crazy and fans and passengers gather to ogle. Yet she manages to make her way through the chaos with a pleasant look on her face and keeps her children calm. You’ve got to give Angie and Brad credit for handling the paparazzi gracefully and maintaining their own sanity.
