Check the imdb listing for Marcheline Bertrand. Three roles in her almost-57 years of life -- "girl," "girl in Jeep," and "Connie" on one episode of "Ironsides."

When someone is described in an obit as an actress, I'd expect to see a bit more than that. I'm not trying to be mean (no, really, I'm not), but this is amazing to me. Does this mean she's done nothing at all in any field since her seminal role as "girl" back in 1983, so rather than describe her as "chronically unemployed" or "incredibly lazy," someone decided to go back to her last gainful employment and call her an actress?

In fairness, imdb also lists her "executive producer" on a 2005 movie, but since her son and daughter were also executive producers on that one....

Of course Katie Holmes isn't doing Dark might interfere with the Battlefield Earth sequel...

Funny, were it not for the fact that Katie is married to the Scientology Jesus, her not appearing in the next Batman film wouldn't be newsworthy at all.

BF is right - after all, there's nothing in Marcheline Bertrand's obit that says *she* isn't appearing in the next Batman film either.

MEEEEE----OWWWWW! Snarkier than usual, even for a Monday.

Changing the subject, I think Abigail Breslin is adorable, Becks should stick to soccer and I can't wait to hear what RoO'Do has to say about Kelly Ripa getting Botox live.

Do you suppose Jolie was chilly with Ryan Seacrest b/c of her mom?

Funny that Emma Bunton's baby news came out right after I bought her "Free Me" CD...I was thinking about making babies with her too.

Please spell his name correctly: Freddie Mercury.

I think Angelina Jolie was "chilly" to Seacrest b/c he's an idiot and made the interview more about him and his boring, predictable questions. How is that guy even famous or employed for that matter? I dont get it.

Picky, your comment is completely disgraceful. A single mom raising 2 kids (especially if 1 of them is angelina jolie) is hardly lazy. You have insulted not only MB, but millions of other stay-at-home moms as well.

P.S. For the record, I'm a working mom with boundless respect and admiration for single moms, stay-at-home moms, and all kinds of moms!

I wonder why they failed to mention Scary Spice's impending baby when discussing the other Spice Girls' children.

Marcheline Bertrand was a model. That's what she was famous for.

No she is a b---- and she also believes in karma, so on saturday she got some bad karma.

Is it just me, or does Breslin look eerily like Jodie Foster in that photo?
