Thank you, thank you, thank you, a thousand times thank you Ben for not moving to Virginia and running for Congress! I have already seen several Benator bumper stickers and it skeeves me out every time. It would have forced me to vote Republican for the first time ever. And for crying out loud, I even voted for Dukakis back in the day!

Oh, my...did anyone tell Ashlee that skeletal IS NOT sexy? That girl needs to be introduced to Mongolian Stir-Fry Buffet, post haste!

We're not out of the woods on Benator until he's in the ground with a wooden stake through his heart.

WOAH!!! I would like a close up of before- and after-nose job Ashlee. I suspect there may have been more work than diet and a nose job. In that profile pic she sure looks like Kate Hudson.

Re: Ranking Cute Hollywood Kids.

Liz, I think you blogged about this before, but where do these people find ego's big enough to make these opinions absolute declaration of fact? And why is Sean Preston up there? He hasn't really been around that long.

But I'll give that Maddox is a cutie pie. He's pretty strong support for the nurture side of the argument.

This is the last time I'm typing or saying the word "manny" to describe a male nanny.

Um, hey... where is Brad Pitt right now?? Didn't he get the message that there's another apocalypse going down in France right now that needs his guidance? If the mink crisis is enough to make Berdot hate being French it must be serious. Won't someone PLEASE think of the MINKS!?

I have no idea why Ashlee Simpson had work done. She was absolutely gorgeous, and unique, beforehand! Now she's just a Hollywood clone.

Well, she's certainly cartoon-like!! Ha.

ashlee had work done because she's always been jealous of jessica and her looks. ashlee was fine before but if you hear it all your life, how gorgeous your sister is, you'd do it too, if you had the money!
reminds me of that sibline rivalry in that movie with Geena Davis, "A League Of Their Own". the younger sister was jealous and described to her older sister (Davis) how their father introduces them
"This is our daughter Dottie.......this is our other daughter....Dottie's Sister."

Classic little sister syndrome. I'm not saying that's how it is, but i'm sure that's how she feels. Ashlee has her own look, or she did at least and that's what made her appealing to a lot, but know, true, she's just a clone. that's too bad.

Wow... you had me at the headline with "Paris Hilton: 'I Like to Pretend I'm Stupid'".

That's the most convincing play-acting I've ever seen. With her "pretending" on "Simple Life" and her mind-numbing, lazy-eyed interviews, I felt convinced I was listening to the village idiot speak. Now she's going to have hew own line of hotels??

Has she considered a career in politics?

Congrats Paris, you do a heck of a job because you REALLY convinced me you are stupid.

Now, get out and get a decent and real job, enough with living off daddy's money

"Now, get out and get a decent and real job, enough with living off daddy's money"

To be fair, she does have enough money being thrown her way for "pretending to be stupid". And her father is just living off of money from his own fathers hard work anyways. Basically, they're all worthless.

Let's face it...Paris Hilton is brilliant! Who would have thought that making an adult video would lead to a TV series that was renewed twice but her. Paris pretending to be stupid is like Oprah pretending to be black; both do it really well.

Ashlee simpson was fine looking, but let's not go overboard. She neither was nor is "gorgeous", "beautiful", or any other adjective that describes her in terms at odds with the phrase "average".


She can't sing either.
