Celebrities should count their blessings this Thanksgiving

For those who dine at the Chateau Marmont on Turkey Day, simple pleasures won’t cut it. Here’s what we think certain stars should be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Kim Kardashian

Her lawyers.

Kim says she’s a romantic, but we suspect her one true love is her bank account. And whether they’re negotiating an iron-clad prenup for an ill-fated marriage or suing a former publicist who alleges said marriage was a set-up all along, the reality star’s attorneys are working overtime to protect her, ahem, bottom line.

Charlie Sheen

Plunging “Two and a Half Men” ratings.

While Ashton Kutcher has brought a new dynamic — and thanks to his marital drama, just as much offscreen baggage — to the sitcom, it just doesn’t have the same comic bite. So we’re guessing many viewers are missing Charlie and eagerly anticipating his upcoming return to TV in “Anger Management.”

Jessica Biel

Justin Timberlake.

Quick, name one of the many movies Jessica Biel has made in the last four years! No, really, she’s had a whole bunch of roles … they just haven’t exactly been memorable. (“I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry,” anyone? Anyone?) But the former “7th Heaven” star continues to be a household name, thanks to her on-again romance with everyone’s favorite boy-bander turned actor.

Justin Bieber

Advances in DNA testing.

A woman claims he fathered her 3-month-old son, but thanks to the wonders of modern science, the teen idol can clear his name. The “Baby” singer plans to prove he’s not the baby daddy by taking a paternity test — and according to TMZ, when it comes back negative, he’ll sue her.

Leonardo DiCaprio

The modeling industry.

While some of us have to shell out good money paying monthly fees for online dating services, Leo gets to pick his next gal pal simply by checking out photos from Fashion Week!

Heidi Klum

Her sense of humor.

Most supermodels are known for their deadpan expressions (maybe because they haven’t eaten properly in days?). But whether she’s passing judgment on “Project Runway” contestants or sporting a crazy Halloween costume, exuberant Heidi always seems like she’s having a good time. We’d love to see more A-listers share her palpable love of life.

Emma Stone

Her agent.

The ginger ingénue has landed every plum part this year, from plucky heroine of “The Help” to Gwen Stacey in the “Spider-Man” reboot to the chick who gets to make out with Ryan Gosling in “Crazy Stupid Love.” And one role came with a bonus reward: An offscreen romance with Spidey 2.0 himself, actor Andrew Garfield, is said to be blossoming. Whoever vets Emma’s scripts better get a pretty phat fruit basket this holiday season!

Jennifer Aniston

Love at last!

Long saddled with a rep for being unlucky in relationships, the actress finally seems to have found a happy and drama-free romance with actor-screenwriter Justin Theroux. Good for you, Jen!
