Okay so, Peter Cook had at least one affair with a TEENAGER and gave her a bunch of money; he spent at least $3,000 a month on porn.....and this is the worst thing that Peter Cook's lawyer can say about Christie Brinkley?:

"Meanwhile, his lawyer described Brinkley, 54, as a woman so consumed with anger that she is turning their children against him."

I'm sure the kids would have been really, really proud of their Dad except for the mean things Mom is saying......

Curiousity got the better of me and I read the article on Suri. This is my favorite comment. "I'm sure the money is a down payment for her future Scientology purification"

Not that I visit the TMZ site but the thought that the mini me sex tape is back on leaves me ill.

I know it's late in the game but I predict that everyone from the former 90210 show will eventually join the new show and it will become retro vs. modern, battle for da turf, dun dun dunnnnnn...

As far as Christie Brinkley & her divorce-having an affair and looking at porn, while certainly not grounds for "parent of the year" awards, are not proof positive of being a bad parent. Talking trash about your children's other parent IS bad parenting. No matter what they've done or how pissed you are at them, as a parent your job is to tell the children that "Daddy (or Mommy) loves you."

Also, CB has been married & divorced (nearly) 4 times, there's only one thing each marriage had in common and it wasn't Diana Bianchi. Perhaps CB needs to make some changes herself. Just a thought.

$15 million is a ridiculous price to pay for those baby photos, if only because it totally ruins my "Shave and A Haircut (two Pitts, right?)" joke from yesterday.

I don't know which is crazier: surfing for porn when you're married to Christie Effing BRINKLEY, FOR GAWDSAKE! or spending $3K a month on it when there are so many classy free sites available.

Run, Amy, Run: did anyone else look at those pictures of her and think, "Geez, she looks just like a young (but skanked-up, tattooed, emphysmatic, wild-haired, drug-addicted) two-time Olympic marathon winner Abebe Bikila (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Bikilat1.jpg)?" Maybe she's got an Olympic career ahead of her, as long as WADA doesn't test for meth.

That picture of Verne 'Tripod' Troyer that accompanies the WaPo article is as disturbing as anything in the sex video. (Which, by way of example, is available for free, Peter (Not The Goon Show Peter) Cook.)

Jennie Garth? Tori Spelling? Now Shannen Doherty? At this rate, they're going to have to rename the show 9021-OLD.

"DMX had failed to appear in court and warrants were issued." So he gets arrested again and makes bail again and he is still "expected to appear"? ep, you might want to start drafting a warrant...

A 'Friends' movie? Let's hope the plot revolves around Chandler's creepy roommate Eddie (Adam Goldberg), who comes back, kills them all, then moves in with Gunter and that f****** monkey.

Michael Lohan, if the tabs don't bite on your idea to have them pay for your paternity test, there's always Maury Povich.

Wasn't the "teenager" in the CB affair 18 years old at the time? Young, but certainly legal, and certainly old enough to know not to fool around with married men.

I think Peter Cook is a sleaze bag but have to wonder about Christie Brinkley too. She's ending marriage #4 (though admittedly her first husband died) and she was married to the guy for a number of years. Doesn't say much about her character judgement ability. Like he didn't already do enough damage to the family, she adding to it by putting her children through the publicity of this divorce to get back at her husband.

On a lighter note, Jennifer Aniston is really starting to seem desperate.

Years ago one of my freaky-deaky friends was having porn party, and on her wish list was a video of a midget (forgive the term) man and a regular-sized women. This was years before the internet was ubiquitous. I guarantee she was positively gleeful to see mini-me's video, though she's probably had her fill of dwarf man, normal woman porn by now.

If you get divorced once you can just blame the other person. The second time you can blame bad luck. The third time you have to look in the mirror and question yourself. By the fourth time you KNOW its all you baby.

Perhaps Peter Cook can turn this into a positive by being the poster man for internet addiction? Even with the porn stuff, I'm thinking Christie is the worse of the two (even considering Alexa Ray's testimony; yes I did read People).

Lenny Kravitz! I've been waiting just so I can say how continually amazed I am that his mother was Roxie Roker from "The Jeffersons." (OK, it's not as good as the Marni Nixon/Andrew Gold connection, but it makes me laugh.)

News Flash: Katie Holmes isn't a great actress. Should we be surprised that people aren't flocking to see her on Broadway?

All the news stories on this are comparing her to when Nicole Kidman was on Broadway, but (ahem) Nicole was on stage at one point partly nude. Ka-ching.

Plus, Katie's doing an Arthur Miller play! C'mon; the man wrote "The Crucible," the most interminable four-act play ever. "All My Sons" is another downer, and three acts. Trust me, no one's going to leave the theatre singing.

1. anonymous coward is right about CB. soon to be rid of her 4th spouse, her attitude is also a factor in the end of this marriage. and, a parent should never, ever criticize the other parent in the presence of children. bad, bad, bad.
2. rumor about cynthia rodriguez schtupping kravitz is not accurate. her soon to be former husband is not a good husband, as we all know. and she wore that horrible t-shirt to yankee stadium after her husband was caught w/the stripper. so she's probably not the best person in the world either.
3. i lead a very boring life.
4. why do brad pitt and his gf have to announce every good thing they believe they do to the press? can't wait to see where the baby pic money goes. does anyone actually care? what's happened to us?

Except that all except CB's third marriage were at least 8 years. I would consider it a issue if she were married 4 times over an 8 or 10 year period, but we're talking about 33 years, if we end it at 2006 when she separated from her 4th husband. Not trying to defend CB, but to say she picks the wrong men is just to simplistic. To even say she has bad luck is too simplistic. Though I do question why she wanted to make this all public.

Isn't the real reason the Brinkley-Cook divorce has gone to court over the parents' failure to work out mutually agreeable child custody arrangements? Cook's lawyer keeps contending he's a great father, while Christie contends she had to shut down a screenful of porn at home that their child accidentally came across. Also, I think Bianchi was still under-age when Cook took up with her, and presumably the legal responsibility is with the adult not to shtupp a minor.

Janet,
I was thinking the same thing. 4 marriages in 33 years is a bad thing. Just date if you want different people, don't get married.
My parents have been married to each other for 55 years. Divorced people don't start yelling at me. I got married to my first wife at 21 and was married for 8 years before getting divorced. We were just too young when we got married. But, I then had a lot of fun for 8 years of single life and got all of my wild side out. Now I have been happily marred for 9 years to wife number 2. If we ever got divorced I would NEVER marry again, unless Christie wanted me for number five.

DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

After breathlessly rushing to announce the birth of Angelina Jolie's twins on May 30, "Entertainment Tonight" has finally conceeded(sic) that they were a wee bit premature with the news.

"ETonline had previously been given false information about the birth, but are happy to report that her doctor has now confirmed to us that the twins will arrive 'in the weeks to come,' " the popular news show said via its Web site Wednesday - albeit buried in a story.

(etc.)

Does ET also know that Francisco Franco is still dead?

Sasquatch sighting!
If you look at the picture of Jennifer Aniston, there is discernible a distinctly furry, lumpish hand in the right of the frame.
How'd you get so close, buddy?

Did anyone read the Will Smith article about the possible SAG strike?

* Will: "But the economy is terrible and we don't need to be contributing to it."

* Jada: "But also, the economy doesn't need any help getting worse.

Psst, Will and Jada: The Economy Is Not About You. Then we have:

* Charlize Theron: "I just hope some adult conversation can take place and we can resolve this efficiently and fairly and without having to stop work all over the city and the world."

Um, Charlize? We're talking about HOLLYWOOD. I don't think "adult conversation" happens too often unless "adult" is used in another context.

Only Jason Bateman and Virginia Madsen sound remotely intelligent. Someone needs to sign them up to star in a movie together. About MENSA.

In the people mag item, alexa ray explains that her mom, CB, is pretty idealistic. i guess that's why she keeps getting married. isn't re-marriage after divorce known as The Triumph of Hope over Experience? Maybe CB just has high apple pie in the sky?

you guys should have seen Canadian Idol! The Randy Jackson guy was Randy Jackson - but Canadian!! -eh?

***********
I need to bolt, but here are 2 postings for the Denise trainwreck, and the Lohan trainwreck will follow...

The show opens with Denise on the phone with her sisterjoking about whether D still has white trash in her -- DUH!!!

Denise visits her sister, and volunteers to babysit. The oldest nephew (13) invites friends over -- AWKWARD!! The boys show Denise's Playboy spread to the nephew. Needless to say, nephew is really embarrassed. (All of you should keep this scenario in mind if you happen to land the Playboy cover. Those young relatives may ask some questions.)

Denise gets suspicious about the boys hanging out in the nephew's room. They're busted with the Playboy, she takes it.

Denise feels she need to have a "talk" with him about her "acting" and "modeling" career. She tells him her niche is playing "sexy" parts. (There is a lot of opportunity in here for comment.)

The next day they go to a trailerpark/campground to fish - having to let the line off the reel and throw at the same time proves too much for the blonde genius, so she cuddles the adorable infant nephew.

She meets a friend of her brother-in-law who now lives in a trailer and is divorced. they show each other tatoos -- she shows hers: her husband's name - which is the the first sign of a celebrity marriage that is destined for a quick trip to divorce court.

Next week: her father is so aggravated that the dogs pee all over the house that he sends them to a kennel.

- Madonna has now dated two of the three players to record 40 steals and 40 homers in the same season, Jose Canseco and A-Rod. You're next Barry Bonds.

Ewe. When did she date Jose Canseco?

And Billy Joel's wife isn't 18, she was 23 when they got married in 2004.

See: I had about 4 loads of laundry from the camping trip to do last night:

Like most responsible moms - Dina is moving LiLo Jr., and 11 yr old son Cody to Vegas to ensure that Lilo Jr. can generate some income for her.

I've noticed that Dina's entire face is still - except her mouth. (Wish it were the other way.)

Dina dismisses Cody's concerns about missing friends, soccer, etc. She promises to make Vegas fun - we can only imagine what this means!

Kid begs mom to stay home. Mom wonders what is with his piss-poor attitude - well DUH!! everything revolves around his sistahs.

Big broter tries to counsel him, and make him feel better. He tells kid to be there for his sister. Since big brother is the only real parent in the family, kid respects him and agrees to go.

Meanwhile - big brother is missing his GF (they had a disagreement last episode) - Dina said she doesn't have time to deal with that problem because she's going to Vegas.

(Basically, she can't pimp her sons out, so she puts their needs on the back burner.)

Lilo Jr & kid brother decided it would be a good idea to get big bro & his girl to make dinner, and invite the girl over so they can talk out issues about how much time the Lohans spend together because the Lohan parents are so dysfunctional.

Big bro and GF make up, and feed dinner to the dogs.

*******
Lilo Jr is in Vegas starting to record her album.

They are staying in what looks like a hooker suite at the Palms.

Palms people introduce Ali at a party in a dress so short - no 14 yr old should be wearing without shorts underneath. (I'm worried that she might have the Lilo leggings underneath.)

(Dina reminds everyone that Lilo Jr is only 14. I wish she would remember that when daughter is dressing in little shorts - but I guess that's part of the pimping process.)

Ali is in the recording studio. We get to hear her singing "talent" as the raw unproduced sound. She'll need some production assistance.

The vocal coach is there, and for some reason reminds me of Molly Shannon in most of the shots. I'm waiting for a joke. Unfortunately, they are all very serious about this.

Having spent some time w. the son, Dina crosses that off her list of things to do, and moves on.

She tells Ali to suck it up, and get back to work when Ali has been in the studio all day.

The next day: the final song does sound better with all of the mixing. Good thing there are lots of people helping - they're needed.

Next week - Dina introduces Cody to those wholesome cute "Girls Next Door" from the Playboy mansion.

Anonymous Lurker, you are my hero. I am certain your recaps are far more entertaining than the show itself.

Not to defend CB's rutting, idiot husband, but just because CB married this guy (and the other 3) doesn't mean she's a good wife or they have a wonderful sex life. To me it appears that she has 1 kid per husband, then lets the guy hang around watching her parade her beauty. I'm just sayin'.

Hi Other Liz,

I've been busy asking Queen Liz about renovation tips. Not to seem like a total Doofus (I was going to write Dorkus, but Dorkus is the polar opposite of a Doofus), but perhaps a partial Doofus....

WHAT pix of Jennifer Aniston? The shot on Celetwitchy shows nothing in the background.

Whatever the shot, it's probably a re-run from those faded, unipixel shots on Monster Quest that are supposedly of me, but usually turn out to be the GEICO Caveman (Please don't tell him I wrote this. He'll he urinated off).

dorkus wants dibs as0 cb's 5th. get your pre-nup lined up. and make sure those children stay somewhere else. too many men roaming around the house for visitation. and get your chauffeur's suit cleaned and pressed. you'll be busy catering to she who will not be denied.

I've been out of pocket. Since Angelina isn't ready to pop yet, is there still time for me to add my picks for baby names?

I couldn't access the link, but it's too bad about the Meghan Fox/Brian Austin Green split. Doesn't Meghan have Brian's name prominently tattooed in a *very* personal and sensitive location on her body? (Maybe they even showed it?) That's gonna be tough to cover up or remove.

Happy Fourth, y'all.

Thank you for that Sas.

"janet wants to be dorkus's maid of honor"

Well, traditionally I think the bride picks the maid of honor (if I recall how it works from my own brief engagement), but I'll put you in consideration for best man.

TMZ what did we ever do to you that you get inflicting that Mini-Me sex tape on us?

As for Christie Brinkely, you never hear about her in the tabs staying out all night partying, winding up passed out somewhere, then heading to rehab. She stays home, when she is not working for one of her causes. Yes, you don't hear much about her causes becuase she is out their working for them, not calling press conferences about them.

The reason it is in court is because Peter is holding Christie for ransom. He's the one who is about to deliver the "it's expensive to be me" line. He only wants custody of the kids to keep her from having them. Also, just before they got married, about he was dating another woman and promising to marry her. He ended that relationship with the 19 year old girl by saying "I'm marrying Christie in 2 weeks."

Should she be looking a little more closely at the jerks she marries? Probably. But, she is Christie Brinkley, the nice ones don't ask her out figuring they have no chance. Jerks who think they are god's gift to women do. So, she has little comparison.
