Victoria Beckham and the Adams Family (Snap, Snap)

Dressed in a sparkly silver mini, Victoria Beckham shops with The Adams Family (her parents) at The Grove in West Los Angeles on Thursday.

Posh strolled through the outdoor shopping center with electronics engineer dad, Anthony, and mom, Jacqueline.

The Adams family picked up clothes at Abercrombie & Fitch and some children’s books from Barnes & Noble bookstore for Posh’s three boys, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.

Later in the evening, Vicky B. was seen doing some grocery shopping at the Whole Foods market in Beverly Hills. Posh purchased food for her family of five — milk, cereals, fruits and veggies. Her bodyguard did all of the heavy lifting, natch. He carried out all of the bags of groceries to Posh’s waiting car.

Katherine Heigl Wears Green Garb

Katherine Heigl arrives at Prospect Studios in some bright green garb in Hollywood to go back to work on Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday.

Katherine seems to be loving the extra brightly colored clothing, as we saw her last week in a bright, multi-colored coat.

Katherine recently admitted being a little shocked and embarrassed after trying to get the attention of her co-star TR Knight who then told her he was gay.

“When we were filming the pilot I was single and so was he and I kind of had my eye on him. I was getting nowhere and I was super-confused. I was like, ‘Hello? Do I have something hanging out of my nose? Why aren’t you paying any attention to me?’ Needless to say, it quickly became a friendship once he told me.”

Madonna Feeling a Bit Blue

Madonna wears a colorful blue ensemble for her daily workout at her gym which is next door to her house.

Perhaps Madonna will be feeling a little less blue after she appears in Malawian court in two weeks when a judge will decide whether or not she can adopt a child.

There are some civil rights lawyers who are fighting to block Madonna’s requested adoption of the two-year-old child David Banda.

Activists in the country are demanding a change in the law to prevent foreign adoptions.

Madonna met the child in a Malawian orphanage a year and a half ago and began adoption proceedings in 2006.

Jessica Simpson’s Stamp of Approval

Jessica Simpson, the older sister of the recently engaged Ashlee Simpson, has been effusive in her love and support for her sister.

“My sister is overflowing with joy,” Jessica told People. “Pete is an incredible soul. They naturally bring out the best in each other. I couldn’t be happier.”

“[Pete] did ask me,” says Joe Simpson, Ashlee’s dad. “I told him that I would be honored to have him as part of my family.”

Ashlee Simpson, 23 and Pete Wentz, 28, confirmed they are planning to walk down the aisle.

David Beckham & Kobe Bryant Lend Each Other Support

Superstar athletes David Beckham and Kobe Bryant attended each other’s respective soccer and basketball games last week.

Becks just blogged about being a big Kobe fan and his short appearance on tonight’s American Idol special, Idol Gives Back. Here’s what Mr. Golden Balls wrote:

“Hi everyone, It was great to get a win in our first home game of the season against San Jose Earthquakes. I thought the whole team performed really well and I was really happy to score my first goal in the MLS and set a goal up for Landon Donovan. Hopefully, with three more home games in a row, we’ll get the results we want, starting with Toronto FC on Sunday.
Earlier in the week, I went to watch the LA Lakers basketball team play and met Kobe Bryant. It was great to see one of basketball’s great players in the flesh. He’s an outstanding athlete and one of the top players in the world and I was delighted that he returned the favor and came to watch the Galaxy on Thursday.

“On Friday I went along to my LA Academy and took part in a session with the children that were visiting. I always enjoy going along to the Academies in London and LA, it’s great to see the kids enjoying themselves playing soccer and I can never resist having a kick-around with them.

“I also recorded a message for Idol Gives Back for this week’s American Idol television show. Idol Gives Back is a charity set up to improve the lives of kids in the U.S and across the world. Simon Fuller and the Idol team have done a great job with this worthwhile cause and I am honored to be
involved. Take care, David

Leighton Meester Remembers the Daze

Gossip Girl cutie Leighton Meester puts the squeeze on director Jess Manafort at the premiere of Newstyle Releasing’s Remember The Daze at Hollywood’s Egyptian Theatre on Tuesday.

Remember the Daze opens in theaters this Friday. The film gives us a glimpse into the teenage wasteland of suburbia 1999 that takes place over 24-hours, and the teenagers who make their way through the last day of high school in the last year of the past millennium.

If you recall, Leighton told back in February that she met her friend and producer, Shahine Ezell, on the set of Remember the Daze. Since then, the two have been writing lyrics and collaborating on her album together.

Rumors are also floating this morning that Leighton didn’t get along with costar Nan Zhang, which is why she left the show. Gossip Girl creator Josh Schwartz has been telling people that Zhang “abruptly left” and enrolled at Brown University during the writer’s strike. Leighton’s rep denied the rumor: “Absolutely not true.”

And last but not least, Leighton turns the big 22 today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEIGHTON!!

Ellen Pompeo Plays With Her Pooches

Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo takes her pet poodles Valentino and Gigi for a play in the park.

While at the park, Ellen chatted it up with a friend, and threw sticks for her pampered pooches as they strolled around on the overcast day.

Last week, Ellen, 38, admitted to David Letterman that she sold vodka when she was just 15-years-old.
