'Lost' Dueling Analyses: The Constant

In which Jen Chaney and I try to wrap our brains around last night's revelations without becoming unstuck in time. Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick) is led into the Kahana's sickbay by Omar (Anthony Azizi) and Keamy (Kevin Durand). (ABC) Liz: As one chatter put it in last night's live "Lost" forum, "between Penny and Desmond ... maybe that is really what the show is about and the rest of the airplane people are fuzz." I don't know about you, Jen, but I'm feeling fuzzy. We were given a lot -- a LOT -- to chew on last night. The hour-long episode felt more like two (maybe we were unwittingly the victims of some time travel) and many dangling threads were tied together. And no question, the knot centers on Desmond and Penny. For today's analysis maybe we can do something a little different -- take last night's most complex complexities...

Quick, Christina Ricci, Save Yourself!

Hi Christina Ricci. Let me just come right out and say it: You look weird. You are like a living bobblehead doll or a Margaret Keane painting. Or, as depicted in the irrefutable photographic evidence below, the living embodiment of a Keane-inspired Blythe doll. Left: Ricci. (Getty Images) Right: The Blythe doll. A little advice, Christina: Lose the bangs and the blond. You look heaps better as a vampy goth seductress -- all black hair and "Addams Family" flashbacks. While we're at it, let's talk about your career, too. There's no other way to say this. It may have sounded "daring" on paper, but donning a prosthetic pig snout (in the upcoming release "Penelope") is hardly on a par with DeNiro's "Raging Bull" transformation. Quick, before all is lost, dye your hair back to its natural dark hues and prostrate yourself before Oscar-winning "Juno" screenwriter Diablo Cody, who may just...

Catching Up With Jane Fonda

Fonda on Valentine's Day in New York. (AP) So I'm on the phone talking with Jane Fonda and everything is going swimmingly. We're officially chatting to discuss a charity event, but she's already gone into her thoughts on Lindsay Lohan at great length and hinted about a book in the works. So why not slip in a question about the "Today Show" incident? Though I've been asked to avoid the subject, surely she'll have something to say. No dice. Jane isn't discussing it -- at least not with me. But, as hinted above, she opens up in a big way about "Georgia Rule" co-star Lindsay Lohan and her Marilyn-esque New York magazine cover shoot. "The issues are more than a layout in a magazine," says Fonda. "That's a temporary blip. The issues go really deep." Fonda's work to prevent teen pregnancy in Georgia over the last decade or so...

Tuesday List: Joking With the Stars

Today's task is simple. Simple-minded, even. Using the current celeb news landscape as inspiration, we'll craft a comedy routine on par with Jon Stewart's Oscar monologue -- or at least the next amateur night at the local comedy club. So sharpen your funny bone and make with the ha-ha. And, please, keep it clean. "The Aristocrats," this ain't. Swinton, left, and Combs. Let the hilarity ensue. (AP) The Inspiration: P. Diddy's debut as a leading man in the made-for-TV adaptation of "Raisin in the Sun" and Tilda Swinton's anti-glamour Oscar night look. The Set Up: Sean "P. Diddy" Combs and Tilda Swinton walk into a bar... --- The Inspiration: Lindsay Lohan poses in her altogether in an attempt to recreate an iconic Marilyn Monroe photo shoot. The Set Up: Knock knock. Who's there? --- The Inspiration: Gary Busey's red carpet-owning moment, in which the one-time Oscar nominee busted in on...

Red Carpet, Red Faces: Last Night's Biggest Losers

By now you've doubtless seen the Gary Busey clip a few times. It was the red carpet moment and, thankfully, provided me with some good posting fodder that has absolutely nothing to do with last night's big winners, the conspicuously absent Angelina Jolie or the fact that George Clooney actually brought 20-something girlfriend Sarah Larson to the ceremony. Below, a look at Busey's sneak attack and the rest of the red carpet's biggest losers. 1. Busey Busts In The 1978 Oscar nominee totally dominated last night's field, deftly scoring a huge triple-threat sabotage maneuver on Ryan Seacrest, Laura Linney and Jennifer Garner. Not since "Gigli" has so much starpower been dimmed so quickly. Busey hasn't seen this much action since his heyday of chasing bank-robbing surfers with Keanu Reeves. Have a look at this man's method: What was Busey even doing on the red carpet? Perhaps his starring role in...
