Dolly Parton admits she looks like a hooker - Do ya think?

Wonder what her rate is...?

I hate George W. Bush with everything I've got but the clip of Jenna calling was sort of sweet. I feel all mixed up inside. It's like I don't even know who I am anymore.

Dolly's made fun of her own appearance (stage persona appearance, at least) for the past twenty years or so. I remember her sitting with Johnny Carson in the 1970s and cracking wise about her girls and her hair and her makeup. I think she's darling and I would LOVE to hang around Dollywood with her for a day.

"It takes a lot of money to look this cheap." Dolly

The Lovely Mrs. byoolin and The Kid watched Jenna call GWB yesterday.

Later, during their sarcastic deconstruction of the little episode, the Lovely Mrs. said, "Think of all the kids who don't have a daddy to call because of the things her daddy has done."

It's hookers who try to look like Dolly, not the other way around.

If the film version of "I am Legend" differs from the book, I'm in for a surprise.

Chris sweetie just hire someone to do your laundry. That many dirty undies can't possibly be good for the planet.

Yet another list that has soooooo many contenders picking the top 10 had to be hard to do. Brit alone can hold the top 7-8 spots.

If the film version of "I Am Legend" differs from "The Omega Man," I'll be surprised (except for the part where Will Smith is a better actor than Charlton Heston).

Chris Brown should do a deal with one of those Japanese companies that operate used-underwear vending machines.

Wow, how sad. Think of all the kids that don't have moomy's or daddy's because of 9/11, too. And the USS Cole bombing, 93 WTC bombing, and the Embassey bombings -- the latter three under Clinton who was/is a womanizer. I'm no Bush fan either, but there's so much more to "it".

Ricki Lake and John Mayer. Unlikely, but cute. How old is Ricki, though?

Posted by: Anonymous | December 6, 2007 10:10 AM | Report abuse

Hey, Good Grief, I *did* say "sarcastic deconstruction", but if you want to compare, well, start with the somewhere between 60,000 and 500,000 dead Iraqi civilians (depending on whose numbers you use) killed in an invasion of a country that had nothing to do with 9/11.

And while Bill Clinton may very well be a womanizer, and although that might be Celebritology material, it's pretty weak as far as supporting whatever your point was.

Come on.

Posted by: byoolin | December 6, 2007 10:15 AM | Report abuse

John Mayer is 30, Ricki Lake 39. Under no circumstances should that be considered untoward. Although, I think Ricki deserves much better than John for reasons not relating to age at all.

i thought jenna's call home was funny.

i also think t.r. knight being a bridesmaid is funny.

the comments stewart copeland made re: beer & the chilean president were baffling (seriously, what was he saying?) and the ensuing brouhaha is funny.

there's a lot of funny stuff goin' on.
by the way, is it snowing in DC? you know what's nice in the snow? a cart drawn by a pony.

Posted by: methinks | December 6, 2007 10:31 AM | Report abuse

I took Stewart's comments to mean that the Chilean president was more fun. But I have a sneaking suspicion that comparing Chile and Argentina is not a good idea.
What Jenna really wanted to say was, "Daddy guess what. Ellen has a nice dog for you."

Posted by: POS | December 6, 2007 10:38 AM | Report abuse

No, comparing Chile to Argentina is not a good idea under any circumstances. They don't like each other too much. I lived in Chile for awhile, and one of my best friends is an Argentine, so I speak from experience. That said, yes, those comments were rather baffling.

Methinks, it's not snowing anymore-it snowed all day yesterday though, so everything looks pretty. And a pony-drawn cart *would* be lovely.

The point goes to byoolin for the comeback.

you DCers are so lucky. it's such a pretty place when there's snow. when i lived in arlington a million years ago we used to get the biggest & best snowstorms. do people still ice skate on the reflecting pool?

sorry, nothing to do w/celebrities, but i'm nostalgic and homesick.

Posted by: methinks | December 6, 2007 10:53 AM | Report abuse

"Why would I be offended?' she said. 'I know I ain't dumb, and we all know I ain't blonde." Dolly re blond jokes

How can you NOT love this lady? I also laughed out loud at:

"Most of her is aged 61 now, with a couple of notable exceptions, and she's still got the voice that made her so popular."

Yeah Byoolin, and add in the US soldiers who have died in that country that had nothing to do with 911 to your total too - I think we are up to a couple thousand now. Also add in the US soldiers that have been physically or mentally injured to the point where they are too emotionally distant or physically in pain or some combo thereof to be good, warm loving parents, and I think your number jumps by 10's of thousands - no matter whose numbers you use.
I personally, don't care who the president *does* and I don't see what Clinton's predilections have to do with anything...

Can anyone explain what "attempted coercion" is - from the Uma Thurman story?

It's not snowing where I am, but a pony-drawn cart filled with straw and warm cozy quilts would not go amiss...

RE: TR being a "bridesmaid"
Of all the silly wedding traditions that have lasted over the years the one I'm surprised doesn't get tossed out more regularly is same sex sides of the wedding. I'm a female and a couple of my closest friends are men - I'm not supposed to ask them to stand up for me because they can't be "bridesmaids"?
Go for it TR!

a nice hayride/sleigh ride would be fun!

props to byoolin.

i miss snow.

it's cold where i am and my heat is out and i had to leave my collie dog shivering under a blanket at home today.

snow and a pony would make it all okay.

when i lived in fax co many moons ago we used to skate on the c&o canal... they still do that?

and on the lake at evans farm inn in mclean... bet that's gone now.

Posted by: b | December 6, 2007 11:09 AM | Report abuse

we are up to almost 4000 soldiers dead in Iraq and many tens of thousands maimed with little to no support systems back home--great job VA! The worst are those who came from small towns where they needed the Nat Guard for the extra income. Now they go home and cannot even get a job they had before at the 7-11 because they are so severely disabled. We have created entire towns with unemployed and disabled vets.

By the way, Liz, didn't you mean to write, "Nancy Grace shows off newborn twins [and implicates them in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway]"?

Hey hey hey, leav the politics for the politics blogs. This is Celebritology. We come here to get away from that junk.

Yeah, DC is pretyt in the snow, unless you have to get somewhere. And there's no ice skating on the pools on the Mall or the C&O Canal.

Does anyone take anything that Stewart Copeland says without at least a pound of salt? He's been totally off hsi rocker for years now. Heck, Iread what he says as a compliment. I think he was trying to say that Chile's president would be good to have 4 beers with on party night.

Posted by: EricS | December 6, 2007 11:25 AM | Report abuse

The attempted coercion charge is related to him threatening harm to himself if Uma didn't do as he demanded of her (not date other men). Coercion is usually defined as making threats that cause another against the other's will to do any act.

b, i remember skating on the canal too!

i also went to on a camping trip one winter and walked on the potomac river. probably a stupid thing to do, but at least i can say i did it.

KG, it just goes to show that President is human. It doesn't change any views of his that you may oppose.

I think it showed class on Ellen's part not to ask some interesting questions about Iraq or gay rights or something. She kept it light, in line with the rest of the interview.

"do people still ice skate on the reflecting pool?"

Not the reflecting pool but the near the musuem of art there is a rink that stays open until March. Tis wonderful, it would be much better with a pony. I wonder if they have a suggestion box?

I think John Mayer is a funny guy. His "Wonderland" song makes me wanna vomit, but I think he's a funny guy & gets the joke. Maybe he got tired of those blonde bimbos he'd been dating & requires the guiding hand of an older woman **winkwinknudgenudge**.

I love MTV's comment about Travolta in "Hairspray:"

"In Johnny Boy's defense, it was hard to hear his dialogue over the sound of Divine rolling over in her grave."

That's sorta how I felt about it too.

I don't think anyone has skated on the canal in a few years since it doesn't freeze solid very often. Or if they have tried, they've ended up swimming.

I'm getting the feeling there's a science fair project in here somewhere: How Banter on a Blog Affects Ponies' Moods. There would be the control group with no news feeds whatsoever, the one group with a statistically balanced mix of Fox News and CNN, a group with a mix of "Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report", and a group with nothing but TMZ and E! running. :)

It's pretty much an open secret that Dolly and her husband have had an open marriage for decades. It's apparently worked fine for them, because they've been married for 40 years.

Dolly grew up in Sevier (pronounced severe) County and for years she gave each graduate of Sevier County High School $500. I moved away from East Tennessee a while ago, so I don't know if the practice has continued, but I've always thought that was pretty awesome.

byoolin started it.

My point, and sorry to drag in 9/11, was that while Bush is no saint, neither was his predecessor who's actions or lack there of in some areas, greatly affected this country and Bush just fell into it thanks to bad advisors and his predecessor. Again, USS Cole, 93 WTC bombing, Embassey bombings, etc. And we did get Sadam (sp).

I used to work on the Hill, I got both sides. The media tends to not reflect that sometimes. And while it sucks that some of these men and women are coming home the way they are, who asked them to join the military? It's voluntary and we should be thankful for that. Not every country has a voluntary military.

Sorry, I just feel that sometimes the other side needs to be expressed.

Back on track, anyone want to guess as to whether Amy Winehouse makes it to the Grammys?

"Back on track, anyone want to guess as to whether Amy Winehouse makes it to the Grammys?"

Well, that all depends on context; does "make it to the Grammys" mean live to see them, be able to attend due to lack of arrests, or make it to the Grammys with a complete outfit?

I love the grey in Will Smith's beard, it reminds me that he's actually my age.
Totally bummed that Kiefer might end up serving a full 48 days. His crimes are real, yes, and he should pay -- but if LiLo does an hour and a half for all her mess (driving up the curb, car jacking, walking into the precint with coke in her pocket, PLUS 2 DUIs) it doesn't seem fair that he has to serve over a month for JUST 2 DUIs. Is it possible that he's also paying for putting a plastic bag over his brother's head? Or killing his boss because the terrorists demanded it? Or making Chloe do all those impossible computer things?!
