Comment Bag: The Sean Preston/Suri Thing? Fake!

By Liz Kelly

Last week was so action packed (Lindsay Lohan's public scolding, Lance Bass comes out, the Passion of Mel Gibson) that I'm tempted to never take another vacation. But that would be silly and Puerto Rico is beckoning a few months hence. Besides, if I hadn't stepped out for a week, you would have never read the superior contributions from last week's cavalcade of substitute bloggers, all of whom hit home runs and kept me tuned in from the outer reaches of the Outer Banks. A round of applause for Frank Thomason, Gene Weingarten, Hal Straus, Michael Corones and Tanya Ballard.

Now, on to your questions and comments, which were plentiful, especially in response to Frank Thomason's transcript of a "chat" between Sean Preston Federline and Suri Cruise:

That was completely fake. -- Laurie comments on Sean Preston Chats With Suri

Very early in the game, Laurie chimed in to clear up the provenance of the conversation. Frank was shamed into admitting his Jayson Blair-esque technique of news fabrication and is in negotiations for a seven-figure book deal detailing his shame spiral.

They don't make movies for (starring) old people these days because old people don't go to the movies. Want to know why? It's too expensive, the seats are too uncomfortable, and the theaters are filled with loud, obnoxious younguns. Oh, and I, for one, can't get through a movie without having to go to the bathroom, so I wait for the DVD so I can just pause it instead of asking somebody what happened while I was gone. -- Denise comments on Old People Movies: Why Not?

Although I, too, have an annoying propensity for mid-movie bathroom breaks, I beg to differ with the premise that older people don't go to the movies. Check out mid-week matinees for confirmation. I distinctly remember a local theater packed to the gills with the blue-hair set for a screening of "Ladies in Lavender" and even a snot-nosed kid like me can appreciate the hilarity of "Grumpy Old Men" (especially Burgess Meredith's never-ending sex euphemisms).

..."at expected price it will not GoLightly..." whoever thought of this line is brilliant and I wonder if he's single? -- Impressed Gal comments on Morning Mix: Creepy Shiloh Pitt

We'll just put this out there for Mr. Cleverpants, Michael Corones, who can speak for himself.

It's nice to see Gene finally write something of substance. And I think most of us know what that substance is. -- Ttlsccr comments on Gene's Mid-Morning Mix

Well said, Ttlsccr. We expect Gene to issue an official apology for his drunken tirade and litany of whoppers at any moment now.

You know who is really dreamy? Jesus Christ. Gnaw on that one for a while. -- Iowa Lover comments on McDreamy's Makeover

Indeed. Shame on us all for gnawing on Doogie Howser and Tori Spelling when a divine snack was so close to hand.
