If Clay Aiken is going to be a daddy, will Randy Travis be the kid's godparent?

And since Clay is so super-potent, maybe Paul Wentz should demand a paternity test from Flashlee.

And speaking of Clay Aiken, please explain what was the point of pointing out that the pregancy was due to artificial insemination and that the Baby Mama is "just a friend", it just yells..."I'M GAY".

Harvey Korman was definitely one of the all-time greats. I watched the Carol Burnett show DEVOTEDLY and he never failed to crack me up. Lots of good memories.

While Steven Tyler is rehabbing his feet, do you think they could also do something about the, you know, face?

So Britney is too ill to be in curt, but she wants her own sitcom and has a role in one already? Nice to know her priorities are in order.

I'm sorry, non-Lost lovers, I recognize it can be annoying. But at the same time, I'm so happy to have found a group of rabid fans that sometimes it's hard to wait a few hours to discuss the show!

So onto other news... ScarJo's album bombs. Do you think it would have done better if Gene's favorite picture was the cover?

Posted by: RiverCityRoller | May 30, 2008 10:30 AM | Report abuse

I actually listened to some of ScarJo's album on iTunes and it is just like everyone says...you can barely hear her over the music and then it sounded like she was screeching. I wouldn't have downloaded this if it was free. And I'm all about free.

Also, for you SATC fans I did see a prescreening of the movie the other night, its pretty good, though it drags a little in the middle, don't think you'll be disappointed. Though I still don't understand why Jennifer Hudson was in it.

RCR,
Nah, you can get that anywhere on the internet. Same for the music. Now if she would come over to my house in a bikini and sing it to me in person...

Posted by: yellojkt | May 30, 2008 10:39 AM | Report abuse

Scarlett Johannson is getting exactly what she deserves. Her CD was a totally unnecessary vanity project. For starters who wants to hear Tom Wait covers. Second, the music was so over filtered and backtracked it was hard to tell she was actually singing. Other than that, she has a smoking body.
