Comment Box: Screech, SPF and Six More Weeks of Celibacy

By Liz Kelly

Happy Monday on an uncharacteristically refreshing August morning in D.C., where we don't flinch when the fighter jets fly over anymore.

Whatever happened to Screech's house? Remember the banks were going to foreclose on it, so he went online and sold T-shirts to pay off his debt. So whats the scoop, Liz? -- Pete on Celebrity Head-Scratchers

Good question, Pete. Yes, Diamond was all over the place earlier this summer trying to sell his "I gave 15 dollars to help Screech save his house" T-shirts at $15 a pop (or $20 for an autographed shirt). He estimated he would need to sell approximately 30,000 shirts to save his home from foreclosure. He was also offered $1,000 per show by Howard Stern wingman Artie Lange to appear in a stand up show. Though Diamond agreed, he never showed up.

We're way past the 30-day deadline now and neither Diamond's official Web site, his t-shirt selling site nor his MySpace page have been updated with the outcome. Though his MySpace page does list him as a "swinger" who makes $100,000 to $150,000 a year.

I've got e-mails out to Diamond's people to see if we can get an update. Perhaps in the chaos of being mugged in a hotel room for video games, he forgot about his impending homelessness.

Poor SPF -- It's not his fault his parents dress him like that. -- Alyson comments on Morning Mix: Sean Preston Named Worst Dressed

"SPF?" Ha. Yes, the parents -- who have clearly demonstrated their own wardrobe incompetence -- should be castigated in SPF's stead, since he's physically and mentally incapable of choosing his own clothes. Little Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, however, has impeccable taste.

Billy Zane does a great job of playing the mean, controlling, cowardly murderous fiance in 1997's Titanic. I force my wife to watch the movie often so she knows how lucky she is to have me. -- Flick Junkie comments on Movie Jerks We Love to Hate

Amen, Flick Junkie. I make my husband watch "Sid and Nancy" for the exact same reason. I haven't yet figured out why he keeps insisting we watch "Star 80," though.

Comment of the Week:
You know, they say that if a kinkajou bites you, it foretells six more weeks of celibacy. -- Thor comments on Aug. 11 Morning Mix

Been outside in the past couple hours, Liz? It ain't that refreshing anymore.

Ya, now we're back to August in D.C. weather. Oh well, September ain't too far off.

Have you looked at OfficePirates.com today? It seems Screech is causing quite a buzz today...

Your husband & you should watch "U.S. vs. Larry Flynt" together to realize how lucky BOTH of you are.

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has delightful taste, prolly b/c she already has that sweet Kingston L.A.M.B. as a play pal. Now HE has been sporting some seriously sweet threads! Why doesn't Gwen reach out to Brit? At least let her know where to get the tiny Marley tees and funky little things that keep her baby looking so awesome.
