Celebritology 2.0: March 11, 2007 - March 17, 2007

Posh Spice: Hot or Not?

Her Poshness. (Getty Images) This Friday we take a break from lists to continue a dissection of Hortense the Pointy-Faced Girl, aka Posh Spice, whose hotness quotient arose as the subject of casual debate in yesterday's Celebritology Live discussion. To quickly recap: After I characterized Posh as rat-like, one reader described Mrs. Beckham as a "hot robot," by which I suppose we're meant to draw parallels to "Cherry 2000," not this guy. From that point, the conversation seemed to neatly divide down gender lines, with women taking my view -- that she's eminently fug-worthy -- while the male portion of the audience (who I now envision as a faceless horde of underwear-clad La-Z-Boy jockeys*) seemed to consider her big time fantasy material. A disclaimer is in order: I'm not usually one to get into the hot-or-not debate, but this case is allowable, in that it provides an interesting opportunity...

Lost Analysis: If You Don't Know Claire By Now...

The usually elf-like Claire (Emilie De Ravin) does her best Neve Campbell impression. (Photo Courtesy ABC) If you haven't yet seen last night's episode of "Lost" please avail yourself of the opportunity to watch it online before proceeding downpage to take in this week's picky-point analysis from post.com movie editrix Jen Chaney and me. Liz: Jen, it happened again. The disappointment, the filler, the melodrama. Let's just say it -- the network has won. "Lost" has been turned into a nighttime soap whose only goal is to keep us hanging on for one more episode each week for as long as they can continue to sell advertising. And, damn them, they keep me coming back with final minutes like last night's view of Jack playing a Kennedy-esque game of football in the Others' village. Am I overreacting? Jen: I don't think you're overreacting necessarily. When I watch "Lost" now,...

Angelina Jolie, Womb Raider?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie with son Maddox and daughter Zahara stroll in Mumbai, India in November 2006. (AP) It seems that not too long ago, if Angelina Jolie was to be criticized for anything it was for being a wild child who covered herself with tattoos, carried her (ex) husband's blood in a vial worn around her neck and, speaking of necking, laid a pretty serious kiss on her brother James at the 2000 Academy Awards. That was years ago, though, long before Jolie transformed herself into a humanitarian (serving as a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador, granting queenly interviews to Ann Curry from Namibia and writing opinion pieces for The Washington Post) and matriarch of a robust family (raising three children with partner Brad Pitt and hardly ever spotted without one of her brood in tow). But news of the impending adoption of another child, this time a 3-and-a-half-year-old...

Welcome Back, Lohan

Lindsay and Michael Lohan pose for photogs in 2002. (Getty Images) Watch out, world. Today at 9 a.m. ET, one Michael Lohan reentered society. Was it only two years ago that Lohan began his stretch at New York's Collins Correctional Center after convictions for, among other things, drunk driving and attempted assault on his brother-in-law with -- and this is truly inspired -- a shoe? Those two years proved to be crucial in the life of Michael's daughter, Lindsay, as she's attempted to make the transition from Disney darling to serious actress with more than a few detours into tabloid territory along the way. As it turns out, though, Lindsay isn't the only Lohan with a flair for the dramatic. Or, overdramatic. It seems we can expect great things from Michael -- if you consider a reality TV show based on his post-prison exploits and a self-help book "great...

Comment Box: Moobs and Guilty Pleasures

Last week, inspired by a report about the growing trend of man boobs in Hollywood, we revisited the debate over Hollywood's (and our) double standard when it comes to judging celebrities based on their looks. Two important things came out of our comments that day -- the new-to-me term "Moobs" (thank you to reader CJB for that) and -- in the hopes of a little equal-opportunity snarking -- a list of fashion-challenged men-to-watch for the fabulous Heather and Jessica over at GoFugYourself.com. Heather and Jessica received the list and wanted me to share this response with you: Awesome list, thanks for sending it along -- we always welcome suggestions. You know, we do feature men as often as we can (look at any of our celebrity terror watches, for example). The problem is, most actors clean it up fairly well for the red carpet, probably because men have a more...
