Of course, Paris did throw McCain a chance at a killer comeback...his campaign issued a statement saying that even Paris Hilton had a better energy policy than Obama's.

Lisa Maria preggers? I didn't know the living dead could get pregnant.

Katie Holmes "pegs" her jeans! OMG the 80s are back. Girls, back me up here, no pegging. First of all, peg-legged pants on 30 yr olds - not attractive, second - it never stays put! You constantly have to re-peg and roll.
...by way of 80s trends, however, now that I am getting older, a paper-bag higher waist might actually hide some sins...

Thank god Celebritology is back. I was forced to get my celebrity news elsewhere. I feel so dirty. But, I would never have cheated if you hadn't cheated first.

Sadly, it is clear that Paris never read the Constitution or she would have found a better way to spoof the McCain ad than a fake presidential run. Or she has been lying about her age for a long time.

Geez, more celebetwins. Scientology ones no less.

My over-50 BF pegs his jeans. I tried to explain to him, in a loving, caring, gentle way, that this is a dork move. But he thinks it's the coolest. In his defense, I think he's thinking of his childhood, when it probably was cool.

Katie, however, can afford to tote around a busload of stylists with her to guide her through her every moment in the public eye. Girl, those peg leg jeans have got to GO.

Of course, this is secondary when you consider that she signed on to be the First Lady of Scientology.

Bad outfit all the way around.

Glad the blog is back. I actually spent most of today reading hard news. Needed my stupid back.

Anderson Cooper, you've made a powerful enemy in luvlinsey.


"One-time porn star Jenna Jameson"? No, it was a heck of a lot more than one time.


"More than 120 employees of medical center had peek at celebs' records." And that's not counting the PowerPoints they put on their intranet.


Now that the judge says Snipes owes the gub'mint $217K, look for "Blade IV: Here's Your G**-D***** Pound Of Flesh" to start production.


"Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick moving to escape paparazzi." Can we assume she to LA, he to NY?


So, yeah, Paris mocked McCain (best line is when the VO announcer describes him as "old enough to remember when dancing was a sin") and in that one act rehabilitated my impression of her. As a friend suggested to me that "Paris, like Victoria Beckham, simply must be in on the joke." I think I agree.

The Luke Perry photo, at first glance, looks like a two-headed, three-legged monster.

This morning's Post political chat seemed to have a large-than-usual component of celebritology crossover. Coincidence? I think not.

Pegged jeans, bad.

Liz, could you please have the time stamp corrected on our posts? Scared the he!! out of me when I saw it just now and thought it was an hour later than it actually is. I need the extra time. Thanks.

Scarlet Jo and Penelope Cruz kissing. This puts Woody Allen right up there among other geniuses such as the guy who decided all beach volleyball should be played in tiny bikinis and the guy who came up with the idea to market the gray cotton work-out shorts with words written on the backside.

Byoolin,

Perhaps what ScarJo meant to say was that the FILMING of the kiss wasn't sexy...there, does that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside?

And I often pegged my pants in the 80s and they didn't come undone if you did it right. Of course, I would never do it NOW....

Posted by: B'More Cat and Celebritology Lover | August 6, 2008 4:50 PM | Report abuse

Dorkus, I thought those other two ideas were also Woody's.

A Tarantino "Faster Pussycat, Kill! Kill! Kill!" might be a great thing. But if he does it, we should all start referring to "Inglorious Bastards" as "Chinese Democracy."

Don't be afraid of the future, Nosy Parker. It contains celebrities who get into bad car accidents with another woman (to whom they are not married.) Once the good pain drugs wear off, they're on the phone with the divorce lawyer. --Morgan Freeman

The future also contains politicians who, because of the National Enquirer, are afraid to be seen holding or kissing any baby, lest the rumor is spread that it is theirs. --John Edwards

And the future also boasts an aging supermodel with a fetish for a certain would-be First Lady. --Tyra Banks.

In other words, THE FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT!

I get the impression paris has been in on the joke from the begining. An incredibly lucrative joke at that, the DUI bust aside.

Tarantino and Spears working on the same project? Really? Something about that just aint right.

I'll bet the twins won't be calling Priscilla Presley "grandma."

It's hard to do that, scream and recoil in terror all at the same time.

Not to be a buzz kill, but no one really thinks Paris wrote any that herself do they?
Yes, just the fact she was able to say it without stumbling and giggling is impressive, but I doubt she came up with even one line herself.

Never fear, dw, even in the future, young, nubile trust fund babies have writers at their beck and call. From the AP wire:

The 24-year-old heiress memorized her entire monologue, which included Hilton outlining her energy plan, in an online video spoof posted on Funny or Die, the comedy Web site's content director said.

Co-founder Adam McKay came up with the concept for a mock ad starring Hilton, which has received over 3 million views since it was posted Tuesday.

"Adam thought it would be really funny to get Paris to respond to the John McCain ad that featured her," Funny or Die content director Amy Rhodes told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "Adam contacted Paris directly, and she agreed to do it. He wrote the sketch. And she really, really loved it."

Per Katie Holmes:

Yes her jeans are pegged. I can't say I give a cr@p. She doesn't have camel toe or is displaying her private parts in public or wearing insanely short shorts.

She looks comfortable and like she actually may have finished a sandwich lately. Get over it.

Besides - the Go Fug Yourself girls are covering Katie Holmes' pegged jeans obsession nicely, and have been for a week or two.

Maybe Katie was drunk with power after kicking the in-laws out of the house, she rolled up her pants to get to work cleaning out there rooms and had to rush out without realizing the pants were still in such a state. Or there was a Scientology mandate.

I heart Anderson Cooper. Kelly is obviously trying to placate the booking person on the show when she refers to the Lohans as a multi-talented family to which AC responds, 'that must have been on the episode I missed.'

If we were awarding medals for championship level snarking, I'd have to give it to the writers at XWeb for this colossal smackdown of a Swedish climber who has been using the tragedy at K2 these last few days for self-promotion and aggrandizement:

I detect a fellow product of parochial school.

One thing I could never figure out: the original purpose of those damned clickers. If they had originally been designed to bop students on the head, they would have been more hammer-like. Whatever the original purpose, it sure hurt when Sister PMS bonked you on the head with the damned thing.

Sas, if you're interested, this was an update on August 4th. The contempt is all in subtext, but I thought it was scathing in tone--more or less blames him for a death even. It came after an earlier update scolding him for slandering the affected climbers while offering heroic stories about himself, all while there were still injured guys coming down the mountain and some real heroics by others going up to help them.

So, I know a humility regimine when I see one (Katie Holmes' jeans), I am aware of what goes on in the back seat of a Buick (remember those great over-padded, cloth covered bench seats?), and how to turn on a dime at the sound of a clicker.

Feds drop Ledger drug probe
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published: August 6, 2008
Filed at 8:01 p.m. ET

NEW YORK (AP) -- A law enforcement official says federal prosecutors have dropped the investigation into how Heath Ledger obtained two painkillers that contributed to his overdose.

The official says prosecutors in the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan bowed out ''because they don't believe there's a viable target.'' The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no charges have been filed.

The decision comes in the wake of news reports that the Drug Enforcement Administration was pressuring actress Mark-Kate Olsen to speak to agents about the accidental overdose death of her close friend.
