Is it just me... or is Paula Abdul acquiring fans of the "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" ilk.

I think we should all be happy that Paris found her true calling.

can we add to the poll yesterday's TomKat piece about Katie and the suit-mini ensemble *blushes*? Ugh!
That's still disturbing me a day later....It is like she's living out a Top Gun fantasy, isn't it? Gag.

Anyway - that's got my vote!

I have a confession. I LOVE this Britney song, and I really like the album too. I used to be a huge BS (ha!) fan, then she lost me with her antics. But this album is classic Brit--fun, dance-able, catchy. In two words: Not Terrible. And this video clip looks promising! Maybe she'll make a professional come back, if not personal.

paula's pee thief is reminiscent of the classic linklater film "slacker", with the madonna pap smear sample. life, art, life...

my write in candidate for most disturbing item is the olson twins partying w/their tv dads. that's just wrong, wrong, wrong. you just know bob saget (he's so gross and not talented) has been waiting for his chance w/those two. ew.

Katherine Heigl, shut up. Your standing as an actress is not that great that anyone cares if you show up.

Hilary Swank may be wandering close to Britney territory between yesterday's revelation and today's comment.

Posted by: ep | December 14, 2007 9:07 AM | Report abuse

Lisa de Moraes has a great article in today's paper on the difference between Katherine Heigl and Hugh Laurie. Heigl would do well to look to Laurie for tips on how to stand by your principles and not look like a jacka$$.

And while I'm on this supporting actress nomination? Really? I guess being incredibly self-righteous and annoying is hard work.

Wow, I didn't know I was so crochety this morning.

Maybe it's me but it sounds as if Britney is singing after taking a massive helium hit. She has zero talent in my opinion. I'll waste my money elsewhere.

The BIG news in that all-Full-House foursome is that Ashley was apparently seen EATING something.

Who knew?

I know this is mean, but I hope its true about Tony Parker. I cannot stand Eva Longeria, she is the main reason I stopped watching Desp. Housewives after the first season. I got sick of hearing her talk about how in love they were and their multiple weddings. Whew...I'm glad to get that off my chest.

That's 'biggest fan' story is just a coverup. Britney had Paula's pee stolen so she could provide a relatively clean sample.

Anyone catch the Hulk Hogan comment on Rosie O'Donnell? It was great, but I was half asleep, so I can't remember it word for word and have no desire what so ever to look up her stupid blog (apparently she fired back a posting)...

This just in: Jessica Simpson 'straight-to-DVD' film now 'straight-to-Dollar-Store-DVD-bin.'

Prediction: her next film will be 'straight-to-YouTube.'

ep-you're so right about Katherine Heigl. I was just thinking to myself, 'wow, this woman must carry a reporter in her pocket to write a story every time she says anything, no matter how stupid or irritating.'

Also, Olsen twins/Saget/Stamos party. Ew. Just ew. Less so with John Stamos, because let's face it, he's hot. But Bob Saget? Gack.

just want to make sure we're all aware of the full 'ick' factor of the 'full house party reunion'...
bob saget is 52
john stamos is 44
the olson trolls are...21
party on, sickos.

I just read the entire filing for Chris Cornell's restraining order and it's not a stalker - it's some ex-cop hired by his ex-wife to harass and threaten his new family! Scary, scary stuff.

I mean, I love Chris more than just about anyone in the world and I cannot imagine being his scorned ex-wife, but threatening his babies...that's just beyond low.

Posted by: Juicy | December 14, 2007 9:44 AM | Report abuse

ugh, BS cannot sing. Without massive overproduction and sound tricks, she is garbage, and even with that stuff, her voice is incredibly weak. She is someone who could carry a tune (maybe) who was packaged as a schoolgirl/ho blend and whose music did well as remixes in clubs. That is all she is. Pathetic.

-I used to like Hilary Swank but lately she's becoming like every other bimbo starlet. Stop it Hillary, you don't have to sink to Katherine Heigl's level.

-No one "leaked" Heidi Montag's new single. Most people didn't know she had an old single. There's no demand for fake reality person.

I'm at work so I can't watch the video but is Brit wearing the VMA outfit?

Troll dolls w/Bob Sagat & John Stamos? As someone so eloquently put it yesterday 'That has caused me to re-experience my breakfast'.

Posted by: jes | December 14, 2007 10:01 AM | Report abuse

I agree with Juicy, and I think this should have been a choice in the poll - threatening a two year old is definately the most disturbing thing in the mix this morning.

Didn't one of the trollson's already do Stamos? I have a vague recollection of one of them spending a weekend or so with him at a beach house to "comfort" him about something or other - obviously this has only stuck with me because of the ick factor.

Brit's video looked no worse and no better than most pop music videos out now. (or then for that matter)

Posted by: sunnydaze | December 14, 2007 10:13 AM | Report abuse

Yes, of course you are right, no-name poster at 9:48 AM, Britney really is not a great singing talent. What she has, or rather had, is an amazing star-power and charisma. Before she started on her spiral, she was awesome, could command huge audiences. That's what made me like her. Heck, I could probably sing better than she sings, but it takes a special something to be *Britney*.

And, may I add, that for as much as people say she stinks, we're still talking about her. We remember how great a performer she once was, and we're just waiting for her to break through and show us how good she can be again.

I'm torn -- I think all of the items in the poll are disturbing in their own special ways. Can we get a late "All of the above" addition?

You're confusing Great Performer with great performer. Brit's surely not going down (ha!) in history as a Great, but she used to be really great at what she did. And she was/is very commercially successful. She'll be kept in frappuccinos, bad wigs, and McNuggets for life. And you can't argue with that as a marker of greatness.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who thought the notion of the Olsens "partying" with their former Full House daddys was more than a little skeevy.

How desperate for companionship must you be, if you're out getting your drink on with girls so young that they should be babysitting your own kids? Conversely, how much does carrying on in an adult setting with guys more than twice your age make you resemble little hooker trolls?

Before everyone slams the Olsen girls for a night out with Saget and Stamos, let me offer a two-word description of how it could have been much, much, MUCH, worse:

Dave. Coulier.

You know, I just got my Vanity Fair with Katharine Heigl on the cover. And I can't even crack the article about her. I'm just not interested. Another pretty, blond, young starlet - whatever.

The Hugh Laurie quote, however, was priceless. I've loved him for years, it's so nice to see him get the attention he deserves stateside...

OK, byoolin you're right. Wasn't he the pervert who dated an underaged Alanis Morrissette?

Posted by: Anonymous | December 14, 2007 12:00 PM | Report abuse

Why did Paula feel that it was necessary to share this particular episode from her life with us? Was it to prove that some people really do treat her "like the gift that I am" ? Right down to her bodily secretions?

And, Byoolin, if Brit swiped the Paula-pee so that she could pass her drug test, that little stunt is probably going to backfire!

Posted by: pixie radiance | December 14, 2007 12:02 PM | Report abuse

Wow, Steve Buscemi is 50? He's utterly cool.

I think it's true about Tony Parker. After all, the world's most overexposed couple is already saying things like "no matter what...". And notice Parker did not deny it, all he said was how much he "loves his wife". Longoria is the one who denied it. Interesting ...

But basically I wish those two would just go away.

It was only 4-5 years ago that Coulier and Morrisette were an item, so she was well beyond the age of consent.

Still, byoolin has a point. Sagat and Coulier partying with the Olsens would be a funky chick-a-boom soundtrack away from being softcore porn.

Madonna beat out the Beastie Boys for the RnR HOF?

They chose a lip syncing dancer/self-promoter over actual talented musicians/rappers/songwriters. I suppose there's hope for Britney to make it in then.

Re: Coulier and Morrissette, Alanis' international debut album, "Jagged Little Pill," was released in 1995, inlcluding "You Oughta Know," allegedly about her relationship with Coulier. She was born in 1974, and supposedly they dated between 1990 and 1993.

I'm disgusted with myself that I know this.

Posted by: Wikijen | December 14, 2007 12:20 PM | Report abuse

Alanis Morissette's song "You Oughta Know" which was allegedly about her relationship/breakup with Coulier was released 1995 when she was twenty-one. So it wasn't just 4-5 years ago that she was with Coulier. She dated him during the 90-93 time period--when she was 16-19 years old.

So she was not at the age of consent when she started dating him (he was 31 at the time), and pervert is a pretty accurate description of 31 year old guys who date 16 year olds.

In defense of Dave Coulier, he did stare down Flava Flav on the Surreal Life when Mr. Flav mentioned the Olsen twins were hot. It was the same look I give to anyone who says that my little sister is hot.

Of course Bob Saget is not the same nice guy from Full House or America's Funniest Home Videos. Does anyone remember his cameo in Half-Baked or seen his stand-up?

Posted by: michael | December 14, 2007 12:40 PM | Report abuse

All that moaning angst had its origins in.. Joey on Full House? How did I NOT know this?! It's awesomely absurd. Did a scrawny young Alanis, for example, engage in as detailed in You Oughta Know with pervy, gropey geezer Coulier..? The mind reels, y'all.

BS looks really out of it in her video. Just like on the VMA's she seems to be swaying back and forth and not really dancing. The background dancers have sharper movements that she does. It's a shame too becuase we all know that even though she's not a good singer, she's a good dancer.
