Oh goodie. We get to see another example of how the laws of the common man don't apply to celebrities. If I rammed a car at 65mph, forcing that car into oncoming traffic, killing the driver, I'd be in jail.

I'm confused. So Cam ditches Justin, then gets mad at him for hooking up with someone else? Does this rise even to the level of high school? Is she like feeling old or sumpin?

Now, now, we can't say Cruise is eco-unfriendly! He's Christ after all (see yesterday's celebritology)! He can just wave his magic wand and fix the earth, right?

Love Posh's dress. Also love the comment about Katie wearing Bea Arthur's costume from Golden Girls! Tom must have picked that one out!
Shouldn't criticize the wife of Christ, though.

"She wishes to publicly express her condolences to the family of the deceased," Barnes said"

I think this says it all. She can't even take the time to find out who she killed? It may have been an accident, but another poster is right, if I did that I would be "sitting up in my jail cell."

I'm that gay rehab that Isaiah's going into? The mind boggles. I wonder what the treatments involve?

He'll have a complete makeover done by the Queer Eye guys.

You all are missing the news of the century....DAVID LEE ROTH IS TOURING W/VAN HALEN AGAIN!!!

I'll still believe it when I see it though.

The Rachel Ray story about her comments at a party after 4 glasses too many of Merlot was in 2005. Again, that's 2-0-0-5. Is the world of putting celebrities on pedestals and tearing them down so short on news that they need to regurge rumors from 2 years ago?

If Oprah decides to rebuke Rachel this late in the game, then not only does someone have something against Rachel for 2yo stories, Oprah isn't nearly the Saint she makes herself out to be.

This Cameron Diaz in a jealous rage story is too one sided.

How come all these "eyewitnesses" know that Cameron was yelling for 45 minutes? Did they bring their stop-watches? Why are they timing people at party?

How can two people have an argument for 45 minutes, but only one person does all talking?

If Justin and Cameron did have an argument at the after party, then they both are to blame

He'll be back on GA (hey, that's two-thirds of the way to GAY) in short shorts in no time.

Anne Heche had a husband? I could have told you how THAT was going to end.

If there's a treatment center for narrow-minded schmucks, it's news to me.

Say something stupid, go to a 'treatment center'.

I better go check in now.

Kirsten Dunst is dating Drew Barrymore's ex Fabrizio Moretti??? Wow, he moved on fast...weren't they together for like 5 years or something? Jeez...

Well, a huge photo of yourself with lash-marks on your back is pretty gross.
I don't condone what Rachel R. may have said but thought for a long time Oprah needs to get over herself. After all, she's not God.... Tom Cruise is.

So there's over 6 billion people on the planet and 48% of them are men, and yet celebrities can only date each other's exes? It's like musical ex-boyfriends with all these young 'uns. I wonder if any of them are getting tested.

A one sided argument cant go on for 45 minutes? Have you ever been married?

I think for them, it's kind of like a "normal" person dating within their social circle. All of my friends dated the same guys in high school and college. I don't think it's that weird. And just because Kiki happens to be dating around doesn't mean she's sleeping with these guys ; )

RE: the Brandy accident/fatality incident....why did it take nearly a month before this news came out? Doesn't California have local newspapers who do routine checks on the crime blotter? How could something like this pass them by. Of course, it's convenient now that Brandy's publicist is going to offer condolences. Heck, she's forced to now that the incident has gone public.

Brandy is now facing a $50 million dollar wrongful dead lawsuit. I guess she will have to file for bankruptcy. She's not that rich.
