Catching Up With... Andy Dick

Andy Dick. (Reuters) To download a 45-minute MP3 of my entire interview with Andy Dick, right click here and save to your computer. Andy Dick is tired of the negative publicity, the TMZ cameras, celebrity feuds and -- for now -- drinking. Oh, and he's got something to say to Jon Lovitz. We'll get to that in a sec. When I talked to Dick on Wednesday afternoon he was refreshingly upbeat. Driven. Defiant. Sober. And, well, domestic. In fact, he interrupted our phone conversation to instruct a friend on the proper way to re-heat lasagna ("We don't want it to get all crispy") for his roommate, 19-year-old son Lucas. So that was unexpected and quaint. As Dick himself said, a Rachael Ray moment. What wasn't surprising was Dick's trademark stream-of-consciousness high-speed download. He's a guy with a lot to say and, if you ask him, a lot more than...

Creative Captioning: This Kitten Has Claws

We can't help but love that curt Heidi Klum when she bloodlessly axes hopeful designers from her Bravo hit "Project Runway." "You're auf," says she, looking all cute and pouty and ready to bounce contestants physically for failure to comply. And I get the warm fuzzies when I see candid pix of Klum out and about with her picture perfect family. Sure I may spit up in my mouth just a little, but that's a small price to pay for the chance to witness this model citizen's world. What, I wonder, would "Runway" co-host Tim Gunn say about the ensemble below? That's where we come in. This week we turn our well-practiced caption creation skills loose on Ms. Klum. The best entry will be elevated to a position of prominence here in the blog and the writer of that entry may call him (or her) self "Official Celebritology Captionologist" for...

'Lost' Book Club: Time for 'Time'

After weathering the challenging but mercifully short "The Turn of the Screw," Book Club regulars might assume our November choice to be easy and breezy; something to set the tone for the onset of the holiday season. Perhaps the Sawyer fave "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret" or the well-worn high school standard "Of Mice and Men" so we can all fake it a bit. (Bantam) No such luck. As we close in on February's season opening shows, we owe it to ourselves to kick our literary sleuthing up a notch. So like Juliet, who downed the drug-laced orange juice to find her way to the island, or Locke, who didn't let reason prevent him from blowing the hatch wide open or Matthew Fox, who bravely allowed the make-up department to spirit gum a patchy beard to his face in last season's finale, we too must push past our...

The World According to Kanye

I have completely flip-flopped on Kanye West. I like him. And not as a musician really, though I can dig a little "Touch the Sky" from time to time when it pops up on the old iPod. What I like about Kanye is his never-say-die approach to self promotion. When faced with adversity, Kanye does not go quietly into that good night. No, as seen in the footage below, captured at August's Video Music Awards, this guy is a one-man Kanye West activist. (Although his tirade is laced with profanities, most have been bleeped, but this is still NSFW. The good stuff starts at 00:41.): Is he really so blindly self-absorbed or is this all some kind of Andy Kaufman-esque persona created to keep his name in the press? The first few times Kanye's mouth made headlines, I dismissed him as a loudmouthed egomaniac. And so he is, but the...

Comment Box: Royal Wedding? Katie's Net Worth?

Prince William and Kate Middleton in February. (AP) What do you think is going on with Prince William and Kate? I think they are secretly engaged. What do your secret, royal Weblinks tell you? And is there a really good Website [sic] for following such things? Thanks. -- Submitted via last week's Celebritology Live discussion If I had to take a guess, I'd say Kate and Wills are two young people (they're both 25) trying their best -- despite an inordinate amount of scrutiny -- to explore the viability of a relationship. And this professional celeb watcher errs on the side of giving these two a wide berth to do so. After all, Wills lost his mother partly due to the overzealous attention of the paparazzi. He deserves a little space, as does rowdy younger brother Harry. That said, here's what we know: Kate and William began dating sometime...
