Morning Mix: Swayze, Foster Defend Gibson

By Liz Kelly

"When you are a pit bull, and you love what you do and you are going to continue to grow, that talent will find its way out." -- Patrick Swayze's cryptic defense of pal Mel Gibson. (Maybe he should try "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" again.)

Headlines: Jodie Foster backs Gibson, too... Paris Hilton says she's celibate, likens herself to Princess Diana, doesn't know who British PM Blair is. Oh, and she fears sweat... Lindsay Lohan e-mails rant to gossip blogger Perez Hilton... Jessica Simpson says her album's not about Nick... Barry Manilow to have hip surgery... Jay Leno to fill in for ailing Roger Ebert...

Home Movies: In this "Chaotic" era footage, Britney chows down, belches and proves that she was unhinged long before her June Matt Lauer interview. (PG-13, because Ms. Spears has a potty mouth)

Watch It: Move over Osbournes -- "Gene Simmons Family Jewels," chronicling the home life of the KISS rocker, debuts tonight at 10 ET on A&E. Miss last night's debut of the new "Flavor of Love" season? Watch clips at

Leno is to Ebert as Hilton is to Diana.

Actually, Leno was guesting yesterday on Ebert & Roeper (and surprisingly did a pretty decent job); Kevin Smith is up this weekend.

I'm not sure having Patrick Swayze on your side is actually a good thing. If Liz drew a graphic of him, I bet he'd have skank lines around his name too, just like the Hoff.

This Britney footage is ridiculous. It is not that fact that she became "unhinged" it demonstrates that she has ALWAYS been "unhinged". Quite frankly she is just showing how she was raised.

Unhinged she may be, I'm not judging here -- but at least in that video, what she is most obviously is stoned. Very, very stoned. Interesting how everyone's latching on to the "Britney is bonkers" line, though. Where's video of all of YOU at 23, hmmmm?

nice of jodi foster to defend mel, but she misses the point. i don't care how "diseased" i am, or as i like to call it, "drunk", i'm not going to rage against any particular race or religion. know why? because i'm not a RACIST! alcohol loosened mel's inhibitions and brought out his true, hateful self. it is what it is. i say we move along now and let him wallow in it.
