Don't look them in the eye! You will turn to stone, like with Medusa.

Apparently all of those fears for Katie's freedom were unwarranted. If this is even a little true, she seems to be settling into life as Mrs. Cruise very well.

Mariah is funny, 3/4s of the things she wears are like something out of a porn flick.

Elizabeth Hurley? Are you kidding me? Is she even famous anymore? I certainly hope that was taken out of context!

For Elizabeth Hurley, people are staring at you because they are trying to determine if you take paper or plastic.

Is there any correlation between the hype of a celebrity wedding and the nastiness of the breakup? If so, TomKat will never go away.

Have you read the "email" from the "coed" who "shacked" with VV? Alls they did was drink, cuddle, and chat. Yawn.
Agreed, Mariah is just two steps from being a porn star herself, she's just jealous that someone is getting a jump on using her name for her second career. Mariah, bless her, still wears panties!
Part of me wants to know how "close" Scary was with Eddie's "friend," part of me is still laughing at Charlie Murphy's stories on Chappelle's Show -- and realizes that Eddie's entourage prolly hasn't changed its lineup. My mama says "water seeks its own level," so he's getting what he deserves. Mel B (Mel C? Scary?), thought you'd be just a tad classier.

I have a story about being told not to look a celeb in the eye: I was fortunate to go backstage after a Harry Connick Jr show, his person told us not to look him in the eye, not to ask any questions, not to speak to him... it was all redonkulous, as he was the most gracious and wonderful person. He shook everyone's hand, took photos, was just super-awesome and kind. I have no idea where the "don't look at him" came from, but I did and he looked me right back with a smile. Publicists, I think, sometimes are on their own power trip.

Way to keep up with the world Mariah. Mary Carey has been around for years (She ran for Governor in the California recall election.)

So, why wait until now to sue over the name?

My god, Harry Connick, Jr.! You lucky babe! Man, I 'd be looking ALL OVER!!!

re: Mary Carey vs. Mariah Carey

I can't *imagine* any confusing Mariah with a porn star. After all, Mary Carey seems to be a shrewd business woman. Mariah is just plain, bat-s*** crazy.

If anything, Mary Carey should sue Mariah for ruining her good name.
