"'I'm Mary Poppins: I'm what the buttoned-up girls are supposed to be.' -- Mariah Carey,"

I can't help but wonder what Julie Andrews thinks about this. I haven't seen the film in quite a while, but I think I would remember if Julie Andrews had dressed like Ms. Carey.

Liz Kelly,
I'm making an assumption here but happy St. Patrick's day to ya.

The man has no facial expressions. I watched two episodes this last week (from like two years ago) where his wife dies and there was nothing, on his face. Those sunglasses hide whatever 'emoting' his character may have.

Anyway, the article made me laugh.

-Congrats to Halle Berry.

-Happy St. Patrick's Day to Liz and Mr. Liz

-Please someone stop Mariah Carey from speaking

I just love it when celebrites claim they're really not a ditz while making ditz-like statements.

Damn you, LittleMiss Muskrat, you forced me to read about Paris Hilton. Arrrrrggghhhh, I'll never get that 30 seconds back.

Looks like the Scientologists drank the Kool-Aid before the party, not with their cake.

Buttoned up girls are supposed to walk around in micro-minis & stilettos with their breasts hanging out?
What are the vain, attention-seeking exhibitionists supposed to do?

That David Caruso thing has me practically ROFLMAO. He's such a bad actor. The only word that could maybe sum my reaction to it all is WOW.

Posted by: Lizka | March 17, 2008 9:48 AM | Report abuse

I don't see Mariah dancing on rooftops with a bunch of chimney sweeps. Guess her boob/butt implants might knock her off balance.

Congratulations to Halle.

I wish I could see that Tom Cruise video from work. I just know it would cure the wicked case of the Mondays I've got going on.

That's sad about ABBA's drummer.

Arrrrrghhhhhh, CSI Miami just irritates me. Everything from Caruso driving the hummer around to the storylines.

Congrats to Halle.

Also congrats to Vince McMahon. No matter what some may think of professional wrestling, it's popularity and impact on entertainment is undeniable.

CSI Miami might be the funniest show on television and only because of David Caruso

Guess people are finally figuring out that HIPAA really does mean that if you don't need to look you don't look.

Doesn't button upped, mean well that you button up, not leave everything hanging out?

The BBC says Heather Mills has been awarded a little over £24M.

So being a one-legged gold digger is a lucrative career. Who'd of thunk.

Heather got exactly what she was offered by Sir Paul before the hearing. The only thing she got was not having to adhere to a confidentiality clause. Yet, she is still insisting Sir Paul is the bad guy for insisting on a hearing. She still doesn't get it that every time she trashes him, people hate her more.

I love this part:


But she said she would be appealing against the publication of the ruling on Tuesday morning because of concerns for the security of her daughter.

"I'm not appealing against the judgment because it's not worth it," she said.

"I'm appealing against the publication of it because it has so many details of me and my daughter in it. It has a stay on it until the appeal tomorrow."


First off - it's not worth appealing the settlement. You think?

Second. I'm sure you're appealing the publication for the safety of you and your daughter. Not because you might want to, oh say, stay in the public eye. (And you're not allowed to discuss your marriage, apparently.)

Because if you just stayed quiet, bought a house somewhere with that nice chunk of change and lived quietly, it wouldn't be an issue in a few months, lady. People would just consider you a trivia answer.

I hope that money to the little girl goes into a trust that's managed by someone else.

I'm sorry, the only person that deserves a $50 million divorce settlement these days is Silda Wall Spitzer.

Posted by: WDC 21113 | March 17, 2008 11:09 AM | Report abuse

Only if the $50 mill is everything Spitzer has. That includes the shirt on his back, his wishes and hopes and dreams for the future too.

Bet you Heather starts crying in the next two years that the $48.7 million settlement is not enough money.

Hey, Methinks,

I'm still hung over from celebrating L. Ron Hubbard's birthday last Thursday. Yeah, I was kicking it with Will, Jada and Kimora Lee.

I especially liked Kimmie's thetan shaped cookies. I had no idea thetans were shaped like that.

How soon before I see the internet banner advertising the Offices of Mills and Stewart: NOT Attorneys at Law.

"Police suspect you of murder? Rich husband divorcing you? You don't need a lawyer, you just need some righteous indignation, no shame and access to a good law library. We'll show you how..."

$48.7 million could buy a lot of PT kwoosers.

The Caruso item sure does explain a lot. That show would be so much better without him and the toothy ME.

That is really sad about the guy from ABBA. Bled to death from a cut pane of glass before anyone could get to him. geez.

I was wondering how long it would take before the "P.T. Kwoozer" jokes.

I hope the whole £24M goes straight to Heather's hips.

Is it just me, or does anyone else find big laughs in Snoop Dogg's appearance on One Life To Live?

Lindsay Lohan doesn't like onions. Paris Hilton doesn't like eggplant. And Hilary Duff doesn't like brussel sprouts. "Like, wow, that is SO cool. We should do a CD. I'll get Timbaland to write us some vegetable hate songs."

Sir Paul is in the studio too. If you listen closely, you can hear him:

"Some people wanna fill the world with greedy b____ songs..."

Posted by: byoolin | March 17, 2008 12:31 PM | Report abuse

Even after being awarded $48.7 million, Heather Mills went into an angry rant on the courthouse steps. While that's certainly a lot of cash, I think Sir Paul will still come out ahead if he gets this looney out of his life for good.

This is one of my all-time favorite one-legged gold digger lines, "Beatrice only gets £35,000 a year - so obviously she's meant to travel B class while her father travels A class, but obviously I will pay for that."

I guess when your 4-year old is pulling in £35,000 a year you expect her to pay her own travel expenses. Next time my family travels I'm making the kid break open the piggy bank, no more free rides!

Posted by: jes | March 17, 2008 1:38 PM | Report abuse

I love how she rants on and on about the settlement but objects to the publication of the decision because it endagers the safety of her daughter. If she had agreed to the confidentiality clause, no one would be talking and there would be no decision to publish. So who is endangering the kid with her run on mouth???????

Posted by: ep | March 17, 2008 1:57 PM | Report abuse

Ah jes- you expressed my sentiments exactly. I immediately thought of the savings we'd pocket if we made our 2yr old toddler foot his own travel expenses the next time we hit the road- geez if poor Bea has to travel B-class, I think our kid can do the same.

What a freak, that woman! I only hope this settlement means she can finally shut up and fade into obscurity...

Not gonna happen, she will be the queen of reality tv. First Big Brother (Britian, of course), then maybe Celebrity Apprentice, oh and next Celebrity Fat Club. We will never be rid of her.

Oh man that Cruise video is the best EVAH! Dude sings almost as good as he acts. The dancing, AWESOME! I love how the Scientology band cues up all the music from his movies too- they are waaay to fond of that MI theme song. Loved how he walked into that song as if he were going into a boxing ring. Good crazy bat sh** times!

So someone from the cult of Scientology is leaking these videos? I bet that makes them even more paranoid.
