Good Read
Last week, Raffaello Follieri was living la dolce vita in a $37,500-a-month rental apartment on Fifth Avenue with his girlfriend, the actress and professional ingenue Anne Hathaway. Today, he lives in a 7 1/2 -by-8-foot room with a sink, a desk, a toilet -- and a cellmate. -- David Segal's From Posh to Pokey: The Downward Spiral of Raffaello Follieri

I'm disappointed that the new Heidi song doesn't come with a craptastic video... I think the song is stupid and mind-numbing but I do think it has much more of a chance to be a hit than that other song did, her voice is so synthesized it covers up the badness.

RiverCityRoller, you took the name Geena Davis right out of my mouth. Didn't Patty Duke also have a (failed) show as Commander in Chief ("She's the Prez" or some such similar title)? I'm too lazy to look it up.

Does the world need a staged version of "Rain Man"? Isn't this another case of going back to the movie well a bit too often? The movie is dated enough; does "10 minutes to Wapner" mean anything now or will they have to "update" it to "10 minutes to Judge Judy"? Of course, if they "update" it, I suppose the show would then be called "Rain Man. Inspired by. . . ."

Rose McGowan and Roberto Rodriguez? I'm having this video montage of "Spy Kids," "Charmed," "Shark Boy and Lava Girl," and Marilyn Manson running through my head, and believe me, it's not pretty.

Also, I was about to go off on Dennis Haysbert for his out-of-control egomania, but then I actually read the full story and realized he seems like a pretty reasonable person (perhaps only slightly egomaniacal). Darn.

I missed my ability to lurk last week - we went to Canada for a week! and Stephen Baldwin would LOVE it as long as he didn't have to camp and pay for a 4 minute shower. - eh.

He did find religion. Since I'm a reality show junkie, here's my 2 pennies: he was on the Celebrity Apprentice last season. I must say he came across as a doofus! Not wanting to take responsibility for anything, and sucking up to Trump, the King of Comb-overs. I asked myself: if I were a celebrity, why would I suck up to someone who should be social/business equal?

(I watch a lot of really crappy TV, so I know garbage -- that show was REALLY bad.)

I cannot wait to catch up on my Denise Richards, and Lohan trainwrecks.

Daniel Baldwin was on Celebrity Rehab until he was busted sending racy text messages, and pictures of himself to ex-porn queen Mary Carey.
If the Christie Brinkley divorce were on "Divorce Court" they could make a whole season out of it. I'd watch it on Court TV. That's going to be quite the trial. Hopefully the kids won't be anymore traumatized than they are right now.

Don't forget Adam Baldwin, who was actually really funny as Jayne Cobb on Firefly.

Not part of that Baldwin clan.

REALLY?! Well there you go! I always thought he looked like a Baldwin. Thanks for letting me know!

*********************************************

I think the way to tell that Adam Baldwin is not part of the Baldwin clan, is that Adam can act.

wasn't daniel baldwin on the sopranos, playing himself? he was in chris's slasher movie. he was alsom!

Adam Baldwin gets really ticked if you call him one of the Baldwins. Apparently, he played to type in Firefly.

From Adam Baldwin's IMDB page:

"No relation to the Baldwin brothers Alec Baldwin, Daniel Baldwin, William Baldwin and Stephen Baldwin, who are from Long Island, NY (Adam is from the Chicago area)."

Are any of the Baldwins working steady besides Alec (or are they milking the last shreds of celebrity on the reality circuit?)

Feeling bad for Adam -- boy that's got to be tough...

"I'm going home with you if I have one more drink."

Wow, that Heidi Montag gets more Jesus-like evry day. I can't wait for her Christian CD featuring songs like

"Gimme another hit of that Communion wine"
"Forgive me Father, for I want to sin with you"
"Going commando in church"

Related to today's main headline, here's an etiquette question I've been pondering about Kitchen Passes.

If the same person appears on both partners' lists (most likely to happen in a same-sex couple), what is proper procedure should we slip into an alternate universe ('cuz I don't see it happening in this world) and all three people are in the same room at the same time?

"what is proper procedure should we slip into an alternate universe . . . and all three people are in the same room at the same time?"

You get "Threesome," starring Stephen Baldwin.

It's profoundly disturbing to think that both mouse and the mousespouse have Stephen Baldwin on their kitchen lists.

Curmudgeon,

That was from Silence of the Lambs.

Anonymous Lurker,
I was trying to remember who watched so I won't have to. Glad to have you back and hopefully you submit a recap next time the trainwrecks air.

So very, very much wrong with that. Even if he were a woman, the whole born-again thing would get in the way. And the only Baldwin I'd consider turning for is Adam (who is not one of *those* Baldwins).

If Madge and Guy have no "divorce plans" do you think they could just pencil it in when the mood suits?

Posted by: Curmudgeon | July 2, 2008 1:28 PM | Report abuse

Questioner:

As Heidi Montag becomes more and more like Jesus, if she wants to have one more drink in order to go home with someone, she could just turn water into wine.

It really saves on the bar tab.

And Prince Charles would willingly use the leftovers to fuel up the Bentley.

Posted by: MoCoSnarky | July 2, 2008 1:42 PM | Report abuse

Yep, next up in divorce court (in no particular order):
Madonna and Guy
Rosie and partner
Ellen and Portia

Y'know, if someone's a fan of the Boyzilian (or Brazilian, for that matter), I really wish they'd keep that TMI to themselves. I do NOT need that information, thank you.

Ah, 9:54, you beat me to my wondering if Martin Sheen paves the way for a smart president? Here's hoping.

Posted by: Californian | July 2, 2008 1:57 PM | Report abuse

to the trainwreck watchers:
I think I have them DVRing today so I can watch after the kiddies go to bed.

Also, do you think we could get a groundswell of Celebrity Divorce Court going? The parties are airing the dirty laundry in the tabs anyway, why not capitalize it, and just sign the couples in advance.

It's not like we don't know it's coming: the tatoos, the PR flak denials, the couple themselves saying "we're more in love than ever, blah, blah, blah"

Just sign the pairs when they start showing these signs, then schedule them as soon as one appears in public without the ring.

It could be reminscent of Anna Nicole in court defending her support payments saying, "well, it costs a lot to be me"

What about James Earl Jones? He portrayed the first black US president in a 1972 film called The Man, based on a novel by Irving Wallace, screenplay by Rod Serling. I'd vote for him in a heartbeat.

Oh the hell with it, the whole notion depresses me. What happened to the rumored Robert Downey Jr as Holmes?

I kind of liked Will Ferrell and Sherlock Holmes and Sascha as Watson.

Cohen's character in "Talladega Nights" reminded me of the French character on "Cheers" who kept saying, "Woody, I'm going to steal your girlfriend." Cracked me up.

Hey, wait a minute! The Baldwins aren't welcome in Canada. We don't want 'em. Really.

Thank you very much for your time - I really appreciate it,

SO not suprised to hear on the radio this morning that there is trouble brewing in Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's marriage. Sign them up for the next episode of Celebrity Divorce Court!

What will they do with those tattoos, I wonder?

Back to John Hartnett and the Broadway version of "Rain Man" and td's recurring nightmare that it would be a musical.

I'd be interested in a musical only if it were a musical written by the writers of "The Simpons" in the same treatment as they gave "A Streetcar Named Desire."
