Head for the Hills: Speidi is Armed & Dangerous

Gun nuts Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag? (Getty Images) When Paris Hilton brandishes a BlackBerry or Mary-Kate Olsen tries to inflict retinal damage by wearing this, we laugh and deftly fend off their ineffectual attacks. After all, how painful is it to crack wise about hobo chic or illiterate heiresses? But when faced with a vapid sub-par star of questionable intelligence brandishing actual weapons -- the kind that result in real stitches, not just a stitch in the side -- how are we to defend ourselves? I asked myself that very question this morning. When Charlton Heston died earlier this year, it turned out to be two tabloid darlings who stepped up to pry his guns out of his "cold dead hands" and carry the banner of celeb gun-toting to a new demographic. "Hills" couple Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag ("Speidi") are rumored to have recently dropped $10,000 on...

Deliver Us from Celine Dion

(Image courtesy Storktunes.com) I've never given birth so my cred for critiquing what goes down in a delivery room is about as informed as that of a 20-year-old frat boy. And after seeing "Knocked Up" I may not take my studies in this area much further. But, still, when I came across this peppy little press release touting a birth room CD headlined by the music of Celine Dion even I knew enough to recognize bad chemistry: labor pain + Celine Dion = CDs used as throwing stars. But, not trusting my limited knowledge, I asked my friend Amy -- who gave birth to daughter Maxine in November -- to weigh in. Since the experience was still somewhat fresh in her mind, she was better able to address the effects Celine might have had on her own labor: I went from "Am I in labor?" To "I'm dying! Oh...

A Little Help from Her Friends: Mel & Britney

The voice of reason? Gibson's 2006 mug shot. (AP) Some say we're judged by the company we keep. For Britney Spears, there's no place to go but up. After dissolving her K-Federation in 2006, Brit descended to increasingly sketchy circles of companionship (Paris Hilton, the Manny, Sam Lutfi) before hitting social rock bottom with short-term boyfriend Adnan Ghalib, a paparazzo who, it appears, was just in it for the pix and a brief pregnancy scare. Lately, though, new and improved Brit -- by improved I mean no upskirt shots for at least six months now -- has been spotted keeping counsel with Mel Gibson, the Oscar-winning actor/director whose most memorable line will forever be his "sweet" pet name for a female sheriff. The two have met on several occasions around L.A. and even vacationed together in Costa Rica (with their families) last month. And, last week, the two were...

Comment Box: All George Clooney Edition

George Clooney and then-girlfriend Sarah Larson at the Oscars. (Getty Images) I've been told that I look like George Clooney from some black and white photos. Why don't I get the chicks he does? It's got to be more than looks ladies, right? -- Submitted during last week's Celebritology Live discussion Did I ever tell you that if you squint while looking through an aquarium I totally look like Drew Barrymore in "50 First Dates?" Okay, that's so not true, but probably about as accurate as your contention that you resemble George Clooney in "black and white photos." Being able to claim a celeb resemblance can be fun (remember the celebrity face morpher?), but ultimately dangerous territory. In nine out of 10 cases, the celeb will win any comparison -- leaving you to digest a diet of comments about why you aren't a look-alike: nose too big, eyes too...
