Angie couldn't find an orphan to adopt so she adopts her dad instead. How nice!

If a movie is ever made of my life, I would like Anne Hathaway to play me.

Christian Bale would make a cameo as hot summer romance (my life as a movie may include some wishful thinking)

I didn't know Ashlee Simpson and Kim Kardashian were even a couple. *badumpbump*

If Jessica Simpson can call those other things she does "singing" and "acting" then she and Tony can certainly call what they do "dating."

Hey, is it just my imagination, or does that guy sitting behind Danson and Steenburgen look an awful lot like Karl Rove? (I know, he's not really Celebritology material, like, say, Ted Danson or Mary Steenburgen.)

Posted by: byoolin | January 3, 2008 9:10 AM | Report abuse

I saw the guy Britney is dating on "20/20" last Friday. He is just another sleazy guy who will sell her out.

Posted by: Lisa1 | January 3, 2008 9:15 AM | Report abuse

Ahhhhh, Janet Jackson, the new Teddy, Barry, Marvin and Maxwell rolled into one silicone package. Baby boom,HAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Posted by: petal | January 3, 2008 9:19 AM | Report abuse

I thought it looked like Rove too, but I was more amused by Danson's slight "duh" face. Looks like someone oughta throw a hotdog in there.

Poor Britney's going to develop a complex, what with all these folks quitting on her:
husbands, publicists, lawyers.

Other, lesser-publicized defections from her camp in the last year include:

- Hairdresser (after Brit's unfortunate DIY episode last summer)
- Cook (around the time she apparently switched to her Doritos-and-Vodka-coolers diet)
- Babysitters (27 at last count)
- California State Driving Instructor (after his certification revoked)
- Drug dealer (imprisoned)
- Paparazzi Wrangler (couldn't beat 'em, so joined 'em)
- Cooter Washer (sustained disabling on-the-job injury)

You heard it on Celebritology first, folks. Karl Rove is supporting Hillary Clinton in 2008!

And yes, Ted Danson does look like someone just dropped a cinder block on his head.

Posted by: ASinMoCo | January 3, 2008 9:36 AM | Report abuse

actually, Rove said in an interview several months ago that she was the best candidate. As did Bush. They want her running. The Repubs are slavering over the poss she is the nominee because they then get to pull the Full Rove on her so their boy gets in.

Granted, I didn't read the linked stories. But based on the info above, I assume that Ashlee Simpson and Kim Kardashian are separately denying engagement rumors, not that they're denying being engaged to each other? Now THAT would be interesting.

Posted by: surlychick | January 3, 2008 10:10 AM | Report abuse

I wonder how long before Brit is in jail for contempt of court? If I were the judge, I would be beyond angry. They sure have some lax legal system out there.

And is is really nasty how, now that Britney is down the tubes, her parents have written her off (gotten all profitable use out of her) and are having Jamie Lynn take up the mantle. The requisite famous kid to keep making us money.

OK, I really, REALLY, don't like Angelina Jolie. For a plethora of reasons, including her eyebrows (no one has that arch naturally). But, I am happy to see her reconciling with her father.

I'll save the "rats off a sinking ship" jokes since my dad is a lawyer, but wow, talk about a family swirling the bowl.

Did anyone else see a resemblance in the Suri picture to the last shot of Damian in 'The Omen'?

Posted by: jes | January 3, 2008 10:50 AM | Report abuse

can celebrities stay out of politics please? Ted Danson's expression is priceless, it sort of sums up how much celebrities know about politics....NOTHING.

Is it me, or does Ashlee Simpson look creepier and creepier everytime I look at her?

Posted by: VAtoLA | January 3, 2008 10:59 AM | Report abuse

Also, is it me, or does Kim Kardashian have jaundice???? Because in that picture on the link it looks like she needs some of that photo light therapy stuff that they give newborns in the NICU.

Posted by: VAtoLA | January 3, 2008 11:03 AM | Report abuse

VAtoLA: Kim's got sprayed-on jaundice.

Posted by: MoCoSnarky | January 3, 2008 11:24 AM | Report abuse

Well, in any event, Kim sure looks trashy. If she is dating Reggie Bush....Reggie could do much better.

Posted by: VAtoLA | January 3, 2008 11:35 AM | Report abuse

Why do people assume just because someone is a celebrity they are dumb as a box of rocks?

Why are they not allowed to support a candidate like the rest of us?

KK looke like and Oompaloompa, she's orange! I wonder, what's their natural coloring, white or olive skin?

BS keeps going down, and down and down.

If a movie is ever made of my life, I would like Anne Hathaway to do me. Repeatedly, and with great screen presence.

That guy behind Mary S. and Ted D. looks like Karl Rove!

Posted by: Californian | January 3, 2008 1:18 PM | Report abuse

Ooops. I didn't read the other posts before I posted mine. Yep, byoolin, he does look like Karl Rove. :-)

Anyone wanna take bets on how long it'll be before One-Expression Simpson and Trashy Kardashian are pregnant? It's the thing to do now, after all.

Posted by: Californian | January 3, 2008 1:21 PM | Report abuse

Re. Angelina Jolie -- she probably just wants some more publicity. And has she sought help for those serious mental problems? (Adopting a plethora of children doesn't count.)

Posted by: Anonymous | January 3, 2008 1:22 PM | Report abuse

Celebrities supporting politicians aren't necessarily dumb, 11:58, but Ted Danson's expression is highly suggestive of it! Fits the old "Sam Malone" jock image from Cheers.

Um, what?

Posted by: Anonymous | January 3, 2008 2:10 PM | Report abuse

Reggie Bush has enough bloodsuckers trying to cash in on his pro football career (his family, must be related to the Spears family). He does not need KK desperately trying to extend her 2 minutes of fame.

Angie is only making up with her father because he has the #1 movie right now. As soon as he is not everywhere again, she'll go back to not speaking ot him.

Stop pimping Suri. Everytime you expose her to the paparazzie another Thetan latches on.

As a Skins' fan, here is to hoping that Jess is really dating Romo- I love how she is screwing up his game. On another note though, I think I would fire my freaky dad if he had to set me up on dates just to garner publicity. Wasn't he responsible for setting her up w/John Mayer? Why is he so preoccupied w/his daughter's love life? What a creep?

How much of a loser am I? I've read the Post online for years but only just discovered Celebritology. I hope you'll let me join the fun. 'Cause I do loves me some snarkiness in the mornings!

This just in: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes sign to play the roles of niceFLguy Anne Hathaway in "My Life: Do Me Right." Producers refused to comment that the movie theme will be Tom Petty's "Don't Do Me Like That."

But who will play byoolin?

How about Gary Busey or Nick Nolte??

Cruel. Very cruel.

I like that.

I was thinking of casting byoolin as the Verizon Guy. But that would be too cruel.

Oh, Sas, that's just pure meanness. I'm hurt that you have so little regard for my feelings.

Oh yeah. This is the same father who is skin-crawlingly preoccupied with his daughter's double-Ds. Ewwwww ...

Breaking news ... to my astonishment, I won the LiLo sobriety pool!!!!

From MSN: "Instead, she celebrated the New Year at a party in Capri, Italy, where she stopped kissing random Italian guys long enough to be captured on video taking a nip from a bottle of champagne."

Months ago I bet she'd stay sober until New Year's Eve ... but lest I slip too deeply into schadenfreude, LiLo's lawyer says she is supposedly "taking steps to deal with it".
