I get that Brittany Murphy is a difficult actress- she seems very high-maintenance- but I'm confused by the claim that it takes her assistant half an hour to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Cutting the crusts off and slicing it diagonally doesn't take THAT long.

It must have been a difficult decision to cut that ten or twenty seconds for Brad Renfro, what with all the important stuff they had to get in, like the 'Best Reaction To A Bad Dream' clip bit.

Gary Busey's "explanation" of the "rational" reason he was a wacko just makes him sound wacko-er. What was that bit about spontaneity? He thinks Ryan Seacrest is a great crusader of truth?

"David Hasselhoff cleared to retrieve elephant foot, French maid from estranged wife."

Great. Now Mrs. Exelhoff will have an unbalance elephant in the house and no-one to clean up after it.

"...an unbalance elephant in the house..."

That sounds like my mom talking in her French-Canadian accent. I meant "unbalanced," of course. Or maybe "un éléphant dérangé."

I know that Diablo Cody is new to the Oscar scene but she really thought that someone was letting her wear a pair of $2 million shoes -not- to get press from it?

Paris dating Benji Madden just sounds eeewww for some reason

Posted by: Lisa1 | February 26, 2008 9:34 AM | Report abuse

I can't believe she said no to a pair of Stuart Weitzman's, diamonds or not. And I call shenanigans on her "explanation" that she was surprised.

Um, it's Will FERRELL. Not Farrell.

I don't have speakers at work. Would some kind soul PLEASE re-cap the Busey clip for me?

God, Paris Hilton really is jealous of any attention Nicole Ritchie gets isn't she?

Diablo Cody is trying a tad to hard not to seem a part of the Hollywood scene. Honey, your speech was sweet. Leave it there so you can work in that town again.

I love this line from the Britney's Millions story:
"The recording industry has much experience with artists who have become incapacitated or unavailable or dead."

Gary Busey snuck up on you?

Benji.......you're smarter then that man. Do you really want to go where everyone has gone before?

That's really classless to cut Brad Renfro out, and does that maid come with out without uniform?

Why, Jamie Lynn, sweetums, that IUD ain't gonna help you none *now*!

Oh. Wait. GED. Never mind.

"That's really classless to cut Brad Renfro out" - tell you what's classless, that Heath Ledger got more "applause" than Ingmar Bergman.

Posted by: TonyR | February 26, 2008 11:41 AM | Report abuse

Actually, I thought Ingmar Bergman got quite a bit of applause. About the same as Heath. And considering Heath was the last to be shown, any additional applause he received (especially as the montage faded out) could be considered part of the overall applause for the entire segment since some people choose to refrain from clapping until the end.

I can't get the explanation at work, but it almost seemed as if Gary Busey didn't realize that Ryan Seacrest was on camera at the time of his "moment" on the red carpet. Not that it would be OK for him to be all over random people on the red carpet off camera, but it was so bizarre it just seemed that he wasn't really aware of the entire situation around him and just busted in.

"Fourth 'Bourne' movie?"
They should call it Bourne to F#%k Matt Damon.

"Prince to have hip replacement surgery?"
Who decided the Minneapolis funkmeister is no longer hip? I think he's still got it goin' on for a dude his age.

"Madonna dismissed from L.A. jury duty..."
The jury foreman said all her talk of barristers and the Royal Crown in her phony, pretentious British accent drove everyone completely mad.

Re: Valerie Bertinelli
Um, why do stars insist on airing there personal life to the world? With all the complaints against the paps and invasion of privacy it always strikes me as off when one of them pops out of the woodwork and displays their past for us to see.

I actually, in a sick way, wanted to know that. I can go back to loving Eddie Van Halen again

Posted by: re mrs. van halen | February 26, 2008 12:57 PM | Report abuse

Actually 12:48, Ms. Bertinelli is coming out with a book, not to mention she's been a Jenny Craig spokesperson for the past year, so she didn't actually just come out of the woodwork, she's been out for some time.

Anybody else reminded of that faux music video at the end of "Music and Lyrics"?

Posted by: soso | February 26, 2008 4:53 PM | Report abuse

It should be named "Bourne, wait a minute this s&!^ aint over yet." How many more are there? What could he possible have to do now?
