'George Lucas dials down expectations for the upcoming release of "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"' can mean only one thing:

Indy's got a sidekick and his name is Jar-Jar Binks.

Leeches?

In Hollywood?

Who'd have guessed?

Posted by: byoolin | March 26, 2008 8:06 AM | Report abuse

Speaking of leeches... you'd think, after the scathing judgement rendered by the court, Heather would take her $50m and retire to Spain... but if she wants to blow it all on lawyers so the tabloids can run unflattering pictures of her that's fine by me. Now that Courtney Love is moving to London - I bet they'll be BFFs.

If I were Heather I'd be leery of ticking off a man who can fake his own death and get away with it for 40 years. After all, Sir Paul is not only one of the Fab Four, he's also MI-5.

She could be gone *like that*. "Car accident" or "fell off White Cliffs of Dover into the Channel" or "bizarre gardening accident" or even "chocked on a ball."

Heather, maybe you should let Beatrice start the car from now on.

How ironic, Heather will blow through her millions trying to pry more millions out of Sir Paul. How will Beatric travel then, city bus?

"Demi Moore admits to using leeches as part of beauty regimen" now that is not nice of Demi, referring to her doctors in that manner. They helped get you that body missy.

"16-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears shows off engagement ring" Ahhhh so the shot gun has been loaded. I was wondering about the hold up on that.

"Priscilla Presley treated by unqualified plastic surgeon" During a recent interview Billy Bush referred to Priscilla as "a youthful beauty" and asked how she kept looking so good. I haven't laughed so hard in all my days.

Heather Mills is no underachieving gold digger that's for sure. She set her sights on a nice round figure and gosh darn it she's gonna try and try.

Granted this is in the rumor mill. Why on earth would Michelle Williams' father get in Heath's estate? I hope this doesn't turn out to be true and a battle.

Demi Moore cracks me up. She has become so plastic - it's truly tragic, as she was incredibly beautiful. And I expect, if she had let her face and body do what nature intended of them, she would still be out-of-the-park gorgeous, but in a real way. Sad.

As I've said before about Heather Mills, I don't know how I'd scrape by on the paltry 50 mil she got. OF COURSE she needs to find more somewhere! Girl's gotta pay the bills, people.

The real question is why would a father be that dumb and not change his will when he has a child to take care of?

Leeches & Heather Mills all mentioned in the same Celebritology posting?

Coincidence? I think not!!

I was watching "Now and Then" over the weekend and was thinking that Demi Moore looks almost nothing like she did in that movie. Demi, be like Jamie Lee Curtis and age gracefully...well it's probably too late for that.

Will someone please explain to Demi Moore saying dumb thing at 45 is not cute; it's sad.

"Miss Mills has told friends she cannot look after Beatrice on £35,000 a year, the sum awarded at the High Court."

So she can't raise the child (who I'm sure still spends some time with her father) on the equivalent of about $5,800 a month...when this is on top of him already covering day care and education.

What on earth is she feeding the child and clothing her with? Did she buy her a Faberge egg for Easter?

remember how popular girls in high school would start doing outrageous things to see if they could get the less popular girls to do them?

expect a run on leeches.

Posted by: b | March 26, 2008 10:36 AM | Report abuse

Oh, and George?

People were harsh on the Star Wars "prequels" because your dialogue sucked, the way you had the actors deliver it made it completely unredeemable, and there was simply too much CGI.

For the new Indiana Jones movie, you have Spielberg directing and someone else writing the screenplay. Even if it doesn't measure up to "Raiders", it should be considerably better than any of the newer Star Wars flicks...

I could never get either the popular or less popular girls in high school to do outrageous things.

Oh, well. Spilled milk, and all that.

Apparently, Heath Ledger's father listed Heath's assets as only $145,000. So, as the baby's OTHER grandfather, Mr. Williams (who works on Wall Street) is asking for an accounting.

Heather Mills is becoming the person she compalined all rich people become. The judge should take away what he awarded her to keep it from getting worse.

Posted by: ep | March 26, 2008 10:50 AM | Report abuse

I'm seeing ugliness down the road in regards to Heath Ledger's estate.
Michelle's father seems to be getting his ducks in a row and asking Heath's father to do the research for him.
I would guess he won't believe whatever figure is given for the value of the estate.
Sadly, this could get quite ugly.

M Street, I had the exact same thought!

Posted by: methinks | March 26, 2008 11:40 AM | Report abuse

not to be preachy or moralistic, because I really am not, but the Wiliams/Ledger thing points out a major benefit of marriage and why so many gays want to be able to share in that benefit.

Posted by: Anonymous | March 26, 2008 11:42 AM | Report abuse

The difference between Ashley Tisdale's nose pre and post surgery is so minor I cannot tell the difference. I think people keep saying she's had more surgery because she looks really different without eye makeup in some of the pics.

Posted by: Woodbridge | March 26, 2008 11:54 AM | Report abuse

Actually the whole Williams/Ledger thing points up the importance have having a valid will no matter your marital status or any other status, GLBT.
You hear me young parents?! It's shocking how many young parents leave their families unprotected.

Posted by: methinks | March 26, 2008 11:59 AM | Report abuse

I should amend that, a valid and UP TO DATE will.

Posted by: methinks | March 26, 2008 12:00 PM | Report abuse

yeah, but methinks, in VA, GLBTs cannot adopt the children of the other, (example: Mary Cheney is the child's parent. her partner has zero rights. None. And can get none).

And the Virginia Constitution prohibits any "agreements that convey any benefits of marriage" between nonmarried, same sex people, so most wills leaving things to GLBT partners are challengable in VA. Thanks citizens of Virgnia for amending the Consitution! One reason I live in DC. (stupidly, those voting for the amendment also prohibited any partnership agreements that convey benefits of marriage, even if it is a nonromantic relationship, so forget having a house-sharing/joint ownership agreement you can enforce against a same-sex roomate in Virginia.)

marriage alone would have protected the child's rights. And Michelle's. Without it, Heath's parents can claim a share of the estate against the child. Michelle has zero rights without marriage.

"Now that Courtney Love is moving to London - I bet they'll be BFFs."

Courtney and Heather? Courtney wouldn't stoop that low.

Forget Demi, Priscilla Presley is someone who should've avoided plastic surgery at all costs. As for her surgeon being unqualified, Ray Charles could've seen that that hack had no business with a scalpel.

According to the source, Demi Moore said "the highly trained medical leeches" were first placed in her belly button.
This leaves me wondering: how do you train a leech at all, let alone highly? I mean, they're members of the worm family. Perhaps I can buy some highly trained earthworms for compost. Or perhaps the leeches were exposed to marijuana before training. Anyway, I'm confused.

Sure marriage would have been a safe option, but it's not what they wanted to do. In that case, he was irresponsible not to have updated his will to include the care of his child. It's reasonable to expect that, had his requests been in writing in a legal document, his parents wouldn't contest his wishes.

I'm tellin' ya, there's an untapped market in Hollywood for "beauty regimens."

I've got a couple of cats that put out enough "matter" that maybe I could take it all, put it in a food processor with some baby oil, bottle it & sell it to all those gullible stars as "Feline Exudations!"

Isn't Michelle Williams father wanted in the U.S. for some kind of financial shenanigans, and he's in another country because they don't have an extradition treaty with the U.S. -- so he can escape prison?

Don't think he should be talking about finances, really.

Demi Moore looks great (albeit 100% plastic) now, but I can see her careening wildly down the path of freakshow Joan Rivers/Michael Jackson territory soon. She's not going to be one to age gracefully, it's obvious.

Posted by: Californian | March 26, 2008 1:03 PM | Report abuse

Californian makes a nice catch:

Larry Williams is wanted by the IRS for "willfully attempting to evade $US1.5 million (€1.2 million) in taxes from 1990 to 2001," says the International Herald Tribune.

"Three Federal Court judges dismissed the attempt by 64-year-old Larry Williams to stop the United States and New South Wales state courts from taking steps to extradite him.

"A Sydney magistrate is now free to consider the U.S. extradition request. A hearing date is not yet set."

I don't think Mr. Ledger owes Michelle Williams anything. However, as a father, he should have updated his will to include his daughter. Being young has nothing to do with it either. His daughter would have always been his responsibility and he should have taken care of her immediately. I agree that he was irresponsible when it came to his child's well being. (not to be mean to the dead)

Heather Mills is definitely a gold-digger. The judge should only have awarded her $1 million. She is not entitled to the $48.7 million.

Why did Demi Moore have to go all the way to Australia to find leeches? Doesn't she already have Ashton Kutcher? I hear that Heather Mills is available, though I doubt that her price is reasonable.

When are people going to get over the breakup of anniston and brad pitt? from the reliable source chat today:

Team Aniston: Not all of us have forgiven Homewrecker Angelina. Luckily most of her recent films haven't been very good, so no problem to boycott her movies.

Roxanne Roberts: Can't we all just get along?

Posted by: Travis, MD | March 26, 2008 2:44 PM | Report abuse

All this yappin about Ledger-Williams and marriage. Sheesh, wisen up people! They were on that track then Williams dumped the dude after he wouldn't drop the same "lifestyle" that has dogged BSpears, LiLo and all the rest of sad-sack young Hollywood.

If they'd have married, they'd then likely have only divorced. In and of itself, a divorce settlement doesn't necessarily protect a child any better than an up-to-date, "legal-rrific" last will and testament.

Let's spare the tsk-tsks on that point, OK? In some jurisdictions, it may have actually been better for the child if Ledger had no will at all than having an outdated will, depending on established order-of-precedence (ya hear me, Jamie Lynn?! just sayin...).

After further research, not only is Paul Prudhomme still alive, but it appears that so is Dom DeLuise! And they are actually different people.

This is amazing. It's like if John Candy AND his identical twin, Chris Farely, were still alive.
