I vote Katherine Heigl to be "most annoying woman". Who's with me?

Posted by: Anonymous | February 1, 2008 8:16 AM | Report abuse

Not "most annoying," but I would not be surprised if a number of votes for Ms. H were of the "If I **** you, will you shut up for ten minutes?" variety.

I'm calling it - the Beckhams will be divorced within a year. Nothing is better at predicting a marriage dissolution like a tattoo of the beloved.

A sure sign that I am getting old is that I have no idea who three of the ten women are that on the Most Desirable Women list (Ambrosio, Miller, Lima).

nothin' says lovin' like a nudie tattoo of your children's mother on your forearm. such charm, such grace, such class.
it reminds me of that great line uttered by Don Lockwood (played by Gene Kelly) in 'Singin' in the Rain,' "I've got one motto that I've always lived by...dignity, always dignity."

katherine heigl, most desirable? i think the readers of AskMen.com are thinking with something other than their brains.

That tattoo of Posh on his left arm means Becks will never have to bring a monkey-spanking magazine into the men's room again.

If I ever get hooked on drugs and need to rehab, I really hope that the rehab "hospital" that I go to has the facilities to stick an IV in my arm. Makes no sense why they have to move Amy Winehouse from a "hospital" to a "clinic" to get an IV - any, ANY nurse could insert and monitor this. Is this some British thing, or what?

Posted by: sunnydaze | February 1, 2008 8:57 AM | Report abuse

sunnydaze:

perhaps that's what you get when the government runs the health care system?

Either that or the terms hospital and clinic are used differently in England?

I have to say that while Katherine Heigel has been ultra annoying lately in her real-life interviews and on Grey's...I went to see 27 Dresses and it did not suck. A perfectly cute chick flick. She moved back up a notch for me after that.

Katherine Heigl, huh? Somehow I missed the news that Angelina Jolie and all starlets named Jessica had died in a mysterious plane crash.

Posted by: yellojkt | February 1, 2008 9:08 AM | Report abuse

The description on Amy's hospital's website (http://www.mentalhealth.capio.co.uk/) is really much more like that of a mental health clinic. It seems to provide only psychiatric services.

And it seems to be a private facility, not part of the NHS.

So the 'clinic' she went to is probably like a doc-in-the-box.

I don't get the Katherine Heigel thing either. She's just so average, in my opinion.

Posted by: Noelle | February 1, 2008 9:16 AM | Report abuse

Heigl...yeah, I can see it. There's a bit of "flavor of the month" on the list, but she's had a few big roles lately and lots of exposure. I'd take Amy Smart (Tasty Coma Wife) over her, though.

Posted by: 23112 | February 1, 2008 9:16 AM | Report abuse

methinks, are you really that surprised that a site called AskMen put out a list that is in no way shaped by brains or personality? Although, Esquired seemed to do a good job when they named Scarlet Johansson as the sexiest woman.

Posted by: michael | February 1, 2008 9:20 AM | Report abuse

No, Heigl is NOT the most annoying woman on earth. I just saw the most annoying woman in the Universe on the People website.... smirking, with her idiot black beret on her head...Rumer Willis! Ack!

Huh...reports are coming out that Britney is possibly (probably) going to be involuntarily committed. Hospital assessed her as unable to care for her own basic needs, which is the legal precedent for keeping her in care against her will. It's about time.

Has anyone else checked out the story (I read it on CNN) about the Russian models turned martial-art pro bodyguards one of whom was just killed in a carjacking incident? That just kind of blows my mind. I want to be a model-turned-body guard/martial arts expert. Of course that would require me being a model first...
The are former models so does this count as Celebritology related news?

Okay, some other starlet needs to start acting up quickly so there is someone else to write about besides that annoying, boring, backstabbing Heigl thing.


What's the line on her starting to dis 27 dresses when she is not proclaimed a STAR because of it?

Hey, don't get your panties in a bunch, I find Eva Longoria Parker just as annoying, mainly because we have to constantly hear about how smart, funny and beautiful they are or how good their lives are or how happy they are. If you are this smart, funny, beautiful with a loving husband and a wonderful life, why is it necessary to remind us of it ALL. THE. TIME? There are a lot of celebrities that have the same charmed life yet they are not in every magazine or on every talk show telling us about it.

Whew...glad to get that out.

Outside of the odd choice of Heigl as #1, the list really isn't all that bad. They seem to have stayed away from the stick figure tartlets.

She's begrudged for being incredibly annoying and publicly hypocritical over her role in Knocked Up.

" 'Grey's Anatomy' star Justin Chambers checks into same psych ward as Britney Spears..."

1.) Is he really that desperate to spend some quality time with Britney? Or...

2.) Has Katherine Heigl become SO annoying that he felt compelled to check into the funny farm?

Katherine Hegel became annoying since winning the Emmy, but I don't understand how Jessica Biel made the list. Get real, the woman looks like an American Gladiator.

But I do not find Heigl to be very attractive. She's just OK.

And Scarlett Johansson beautiful? IMHO, she's got one of the weirdest looking faces of any of the current female celebs.

I do love me some Justin Chambers, psych-ward or not. He is WAAAAY hotter than that drip McDreamy! Have you seen his gorgeous wife and adorable family? Hope he gets well and keeps giving us hope for Hollywood families.

Now Katherine Heigl, although annoying when she opens her mouth, is gorgeous. If I ever decided to switch teams she would definitely be on my to-do list.

And is Prince one of the most unbearable celebrities ever? I'm going to go with yes.

That Justin Timberlake commercial was annoying as &*^$. After 10 seconds, I thought, "I get it. What's he being pulled by the straw for? Get on with it." I HATE advertising. This commercial should have been 20 seconds or less instead of a full minute. I just watched it, and I can't even tell you what the advertisement was for, other than something that can be imbibed through a straw.

The whole idea that people watch the Superbowl for advertisements blows my mind. We spend billions of dollars a year trying to find ways to AVOID commercials--HBO, DVR, DVDs, movies, bittorrents, internet downloads, etc. Those shows of "funniest commercials" simply make my head explode.

Eva's publicist just released this statement.

"Eva has been working hard for the past year and made a positive decision to take some much-needed time off to proactively attend to some personal issues that, while not critical, she felt deserved some outside professional support. Out of respect for Eva's privacy, we do not wish to discuss further details."

Anyone want to join my pool on how long the "Parkers'" marriage will last? Like a tattoo and endless proclamations of happiness and how fabulous one's marriage is, adding the spouse's name to one's own is the kiss of death in Hollywood. Is it a coincidence that overexposed Eva added "Parker" to her name AFTER her husband's alleged affair became public?

You know, as Eva Mendes publicist stated, now was a good time to deal with stuff. Maybe stars are checking in for some help all at once because of the Writer's Strike. They aren't working so taking time off to deal with pressure won't cost production money. Maybe it is just the smart hting to do, deal with it while you have the time so you don't have to deal with it when you don't. And it affects your future insurability.
