I loved the lost boys, such a mistake to make a sequal and a bigger mistake for the two coreys to star in it.

"Years ago I asked my dad for a boob job and he said it would cheapen my image. So I decided not to do it."

The only way Paris could "cheapen her image" would be to dress like Britney and turn tricks on Hollywood Boulevard.

That Jessica Simpson quote makes me laugh out loud. Am I bad?

rockville, laughing out loud is the only appropriate reaction to that statement.

Liz, Terrence Howard is turning out to be a hoot! Look at this bit (fourth item at ).

"Terrence Howard refuses to date women who don't use moistened tissue on visits to the toilet - as they are "not completely clean." The Oscar-nominated actor... even goes to the trouble of advising any partners to make the switch to baby wipes if they don't already use them. He tells Elle magazine, "If they're using dry paper, they aren't washing all of themselves. It's just unclean....[a]nd if she doesn't make the adjustment to baby wipes, I'll know she's not completely clean.""

Odd... after the Terrence Howard bit, I keep hearing the chorus of Pink Floyd's "Young Lust" in my head.

Terrence, ever hear of a bidet?

Terrence Howard is a total weirdo anal misogynist. I don't see the rest of us commenting on what he does with his private parts.

Does Terrance use these moistened tissues? Because it goes both ways buddy.

Mel B's new hubby seems to have all kinds of issues. Mistake might be putting it lightly.

Ahhhh Jessica, you are the gift that keeps on giving. I had a case of the Mondays until I read that quote.

Are we back on Terrence Howard? That was so last week. And besides, nothing wrong with using baby wipes on your tushy.

Are we still on Terrence Howard? That was so last week. And besides, nothing wrong with using baby wipes on your tushy.

I may be pathologically naive, but it strikes me as possible that Jessica Simpson was looking back at her 16-year-old self with humor. She hasn't actually adopted a kid, you know? Or gotten pregnant by a back-up dancer. Or any of the random, poorly thought out things that a young woman with more money than sense might do.
I said some pretty retarded stuff when I was 16, and, if I'm in a good mood or I have a few beers in me, I'll repeat them in public.
And then, and this is key, laugh.

So let's see, Mel B's new hubby changed his name to Belafonte for publicity after dating one of Harry's daughters, abused the mother of his child, and is wanted in NJ for beating a duck to death. I don't know why Mel's mum thinks this marriage is a mistake.

Once again -
I don't know where you get the strength. Really.

It's like Jeffrey Dahmer's mother saying, "Jeff, I've told you before I don't like your friends," and having her son reply, "Then just eat the vegetables, mom."

Wow, who knew George Harrison would hold a grudge so long & be so vindictive?

Interesting that we didn't hear about it until after Harrison died.

But, I suppose losing a kid would make one do all kinds of things.

Don't know if comparing a 16 year old humanitarian to a serial cannibal is a good thing.

Posted by: Irishgirl74 | August 13, 2007 3:35 PM | Report abuse

i have to agree on the jeffrey dahmer humor. in my book, there is no humor there.
jessica simpson, however, is just a living, breathing laugh track. and humanitarian? uh, no.

Why b/c she doesn't run around breaking up marriages and adopting kids?

George Harrison was hot, up until the end. May he rest in peace.

OMG, I feel totally sick hearing that psycho Melanie Brown has admitted to beating a duck to death. He needs to be locked up for the rest of his life and throw away the key, the sick nutcase.

Posted by: Anonymous | August 14, 2007 1:12 PM | Report abuse

Oops, I meant "that psycho Melanie Brown has MARRIED" ...

A duck. I hope karma works soon on that guy...
