Diddy is the pitchman for Ciroc premium vodka.

I’ve lived in New York my entire life yet I’ve never been in Times Square when the ball dropped. I’ve walked by the tourist zone shortly after the clock stuck 12 — wading through piles of confetti and trash — and partied a few blocks away, but I’ve always avoided the eye of the storm on the big night.

Did you open your gifts yet?

My two-day gift opening extravaganza is officially over and I tried to make it as eco-friendly as possible this year, reusing bags and boxes I’ve been collecting. I noticed that homemade gifts were in this year — from gifts to charity given in a loved one’s name to homemade concoctions (like a recycled shoebox my boyfriend adorned to house some pampering gifts and cookies my aunt baked as gifts).

This is a first!

During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Wednesday, Scarlett Johansson — who’s promoting her upcoming film Spirit — talked about how she was under the weather having caught a cold from her costar Samuel L. Jackson. She then jokingly said that she felt her illness had value because it had been passed from one celebrity to another.

Just a few years back, Nicole Richie was literally hell on wheels. (The whole driving down the wrong way on the highway while intoxicated thing springs to mind.) Now, she and her rocker beau Joel Madden have settled down — establishing a charity called Richie-Madden Children’s Foundation and raising a baby girl named Harlow. But I have to say, I was really shocked to see the happy couple exiting a store today with Seventh Generation Chlorine-Free Diapers. She’s come a lot further than I expected, joining the ranks of green guru Julia Roberts, by using these diapers, which are free of dangerous toxins and help reduce the amount of dioxin polluting air, land and sea.

I could watch Brad Pitt all week… which is good because I have been watching him all week.

Angelina Jolie’s better half has been on the Today Show and Larry King Live this week, among others, to talk about the Make It Right foundation, a campaign he’s spearheading to build 150 eco-friendly homes in New Orleans’ hurricane-ravaged Ninth Ward. The new homes will have solar panels, energy-efficient lights and appliances and biodegradable flooring made with natural products. Even the paint will have little or no VOC (volatile organic compound) emissions to support improved indoor air quality for homeowners.
