"Celebrities In Rehab" sounds like a classy piece of work. Anyone have suggestions to top it?

(I'm thinking "Celebrity Dateline: To Catch A Predator" and "Paris & Friends Bob For Apples In A Septic Tank".)

so this puck person from 'the real world'... did he become famous by being on a reality show? and now he's going to be on a celebrity reality show? so he's not really an 'artist,' (actor, singer, songwriter, writer, or performer of any kind)...he's just a schmoe from a reality show? wow. what a country.

Actually, methinks, Puck isn't just any schmoe from a reality show-he's famous for being a complete schmuck. That is literally his claim to fame-he was on a reality show where he behaved himself in an obnoxious, disgusting manner. I repeat your statement. What a country.

I like the concept, Byoolin, but reality shows need a pinch of reality. I'm thinking something like, "Paris & Friends Bob For Polish Sausages In A Septic Tank".

How about "Driving Miss Lindsay: From Rehab To Court" or "Britney Pumps A Chump: Season II"?

Aw, can I be a tiny bit sad that Jane kicked the bucket? The magazine had gotten worse and worse, and a redesign a few years ago was disastrous (fonts you just don't even want to look at, let alone read) but I do have a tiny little soft spot in my heart for it.

Same here, h3. I was a Sassy reader from beginning to end and started reading Jane from its inception. It definitely went down hill even before the departure of Jane Pratt, but I will miss it in theory.

Victoria Beckham can even play the role of a rational, self-possessed and responsible adult. So why would anyone believe for even a moment that she could have a movie career? Oh, yeah... cuz Lilo, Britney and Tara Reid do.

As for Lance Bass, Axl Rose, James Hetfield, Nikki Sixx and Mel Gibson, who but their own mothers even cares what they do?

But what about James Hetfield? Look at the photo in the link - he certainly LOOKS Taliban. And what about ZZ Top? Why are they still loose? Somebody go grab Bill and Ted, too, while we're at it. "Be Excellent To Each Other." What a buncha fundamentalist loons.

Did you have to mention Paris Hilton AGAIN? Please, please, please ignore her for a while. I bet no one will miss her.

I was disappointed to hear about Posh Spice, I was so sure she would be in the next movie based on a Jane Austin book. Persuasion would be perfect for her since Pride and Prejudice was just done.

Enough said: "And despite her time as a lag, she was still happy to cock a snoop at Californian law - by sparking up a ciggie in the club."

I'm totally working cock a snoop into conversation today.

Richmond, this is for you: Paris Hilton Paris Hilton Paris Hilton Paris Hilton Paris Hilton Paris Hilton Paris Hilton Paris Hilton Paris Hilton Paris Hilton Paris Hilton Paris Hilton.

Paris Hilton.
