Here are some non-Whitney Houston celeb updates for you.

John Travolta dined at Market in Buckhead Thursday, with two other guests.

He was also at the Brookhaven Starbucks (photo at the right) and at Taka in Buckhead (photo at the left) this week. He’s in town filming a thriller called “Killing Season,” which also stars Robert De Niro.

While the shooting is taking place mostly in the north Georgia mountains (the film is set in the Appalachians) Travolta has been spotted a number of times in Atlanta.

Megan Hilty of the new NBC series “Smash” was in Park Tavern in Midtown with a group of friends last week.

We’ve gotten a number of celeb sighting reports at STK, which is a swank new steakhouse in Midtown.

Actor Mehcad Brooks (”Necessary Roughness”), rapper Nas,Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and “Vampire Diaries” cast members Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have all been by recently.

Hey this is news, Scam NCAA after 8 months and several thousand of hours of NO evidence found Cam & AU had not violated any Pay for Play Scam. Don’t necessarily care about what he had to eat/drink nor Travolta, but just wanted to clear the air as CAM did not get caught cheating and AU beat every team they faced even if you did not want them to, Dream Season, WAR DAMN EAGLE!!!

ROFL, I agree with “Huh What?”. I can’t believe we live in an age where both Fox News (AKA Republican State Ran Television similar to Communist China CCTV) and it’s subsidiary TMZ (The Paparazzi Slease Tabloid TV show) are both considered “Credible” news. Ok Right, LMAO!

Hey Patrick Romano WAR DAMN EAGLE! You are right in saying Cam didn’t get “caught” cheating. But, you know damn good and well, he DID cheat!

@Priorities 10:43pm – ‘But there are soldiers Dyiiiiiiing…’ What the f@ck does that have to do with a celebrity article? I think that “soldier juking” is the new “Jesus juke”.

Thanks for the info Jenn. It’s amazing how mean people will be while hiding behind an IP address. Freedom of speech to most means freedom to insult. You’re cool with me Jenn.

Thanks Charlotte. BTW IP addresses and not visible on the blog, but they are visible to the blog administrator, in this case me. Sometimes I do an IP location search when someone’s gone particularly off the deep end. One night this one poster was just going to town, trashing everyone and everything. I thought, man, time for an anger management class. So, I decided to do a little research and it turned out he was posting from a strip club in Kansas City. I guess things weren’t working out for him that night so Plan B was venting on my blog. Ah, well.

Vince, You ARE NO Coach Vincent Dooley, I personally know Coach Dooley and he & my dad won the 1949 State hs championship at McGill Inst. in Mobile, AL and he personally signed “My 40 Years At Georgia” for my dad’s birthday a few years ago. I had the pleasure of meeting Coach Dooley at the 1982 Sugar Bowl when they lost to Dan Marino and The Pittsburgh Panthers, we got to ride the team bus and stand on the sidelines so please DO NOT misrepresent yourself as the great Vincent Dooley and I KNOW GOOD & DAMN WELL that Cam had no part in his dad shopping him to any teams especially Miss St.

Sounds like you are living in the 80’s and more than a little jealous about AU’S 2010 National Championship…

It’s ok fake ass Vince, UGA will win a bowl game soon enough if they play Central Florida again maybe!

Vince, if that is your name even, if I was mistaken to assume that you were misrepresenting the legendary Coach Vince Dooley, then I apologize but please DO NOT tell me that I know good and damn well that Cam did not cheat, NCAA and AU found that he did not or he would NOT have played against UGA or Alabama and come back on both of those fine programs. Come on Vince, admit it you could not beat him and it was a dream season and so the next best thing is to say he cheated…Did you see him take Cash, personally from Kenny Rogers or the former QB from Miss ST.? Please check the NCAA investigation into this and get your facts right as AU has been penalized enough by the NCAA to know what they are looking for in violations, see Coach Bowden’s undefeated season and not being able to go to a bowl and losing scholarships. Come On Man!?!.

To Priorities: people of Hollywood and those that follow do not have a clue what (or care) what is REALLY going on with our troups. All they want to do is get on a bandwagon….whether it be for or against. They really have no clue and really deep down dont want too because that would be “reality”. For those that follow HOLLYWOOD…they are living in fantasy land to begin with. When I was in Desert Storm I had no idea how we were “forgot” while I was over there….until my brother spent 7years and 4 tours in Iraq and Afagnistan. We the people that serveare really not appreciated…we are just there to serve their political agenda. Granted there are people that really care but they are few and far between or they are people that have hade loved ones that have served. Thank God I didnt have to look into the eyes of the people I killed (I programmed rockets) but my brother was a 50 cal tank gunner who cut many people into pieces. He would only talk to me about what he went thru over there…but only to an extent because it was so hard on his conscious with our Christian upbringing. People have NO idea what we went thru!! At least my brother knows who he killed…I dont…I dont know if that is good or bad!!!!

Cam grew up in South Fulton county……why is it news that he is in Atlanta during the off season? Also could have done without the disrespect to Whitney.

Big Travolta fan, but hope the lumberjack beard is for an acting role and not his new look….

Jennifer-I like knowing what the celebrities eat at our local restaurants! It does seem strange that someone would complain that a celebrity buzz blog contains useless bits of info about celebrities…isn’t that the point?

Dear Misplaced: Yes I think that’s correct. In the movie, “Killing Season,” Travolta plays a Serbian soldier who meets up with De Niro’s character, an American military veteran. The two apparently have some sort of history. I am not schooled on how Serbian soldiers wear their beards but perhaps Mr. Travolta’s new look gives us a hint.

Sharon, thanks. I really have given up wondering why people log onto the celebrity blog and then complain it’s about celebrities. Maybe next they can go to Waffle House and complain about all the waffles on the menu?

I can’t believe how many people complain about this blog when they have obviously read all the stories? Jennifer, you do a great job and keep it coming. There’s plenty of news to read in the AJC without reading the Celebrity Buzz. Loved hearing what they ate. Might try it myself next time!

What’s with the attacks on Jennifer for writing about celebrity news on a CELEBRITY NEWS BLOG?? Please notice that The Buzz is about celebrity news, and if you aren’t interested in celebrity news, then please don’t click to read. Also, the headline is a pretty good indicator of what you’re going to be reading about. If you click the following headline, “Atlanta star sightings: John Travolta, Mehcad Brooks, Cam Newton,” then how can you expect to see an article about water, transportation or important community issues?
