Maybe Miley can work with Katherine Heigl on greening up her act.

On a personal note, tossing butts is a HUGE pet-peeve of mine. I didn't need anymore reasons to dislike this woman, but now I think I loathe her.

Seriously, Gwen?

I'm glad Jean Reno's ok! He's one of my faves.

And I've felt the same way about Sienna Miller for a while.

So, Gwen and Gav went with another Jamaican inspired name, I see. Nesta = Bob Marley's given name. What's the deal with them and Jamaica? And Zuma? I guess they were feeling left out of the ridiculous celebrity baby names list.

Jerry Seinfeld's Microsoft ad: "'Control-Alt-Delete?' What the hell is that? Why can't they make a computer that you can turn off with one button?"


Jessica Simpson says she's sure Tony Romo doesn't still call Carrie Underwood. She's been paying Anthony Pellicano big bucks to make sure.


Ordinarily, Sienna Miller wouldn't be ticked about the graffiti, but it's on the wall above her bed...


"Baby bump speculators"? Great... now the price of baby bumps is going to be out of reach for the average investor.


The most important thing about the 'Joe Jonas and Taylor Swift dating' rumour is that it helps dispel the myth that the boys are conjoined triplets.


Katherine Heigl had to "had to sweet-talk her way out of a ticket." Later she withdrew her name from contention for the Police Benevolent Association's 'Celeb of the Year' award.

You know, Kingston was kind of a cool name. But Zuma? Can't get behind it Gwen. My husband can't either, and you're one of his favorite, favorite, favorite famous chicks.

Curmdugeon: I'm with ya. I think it's that Bruce Willis has a very masculine face (unlike, say, some men who are more "pretty" than "handsome"), and Demi Moore has a beautiful feminine face. Their genetics aren't blending well. But the girls are basically groomed, clean, and not flashing private parts, so I'm still gonna give props to Bruce and Demi for raising their girls well. It was nice to see how they all came out as a family, actually.

Heigl? Book her, just on principle.

i love zuma the computer game, but i wouldn't name a kid after it. however, there does seem to be a method to the madness....

this from a blog, http://nodoubtweb.com/wordpress/?p=3188

"Zuma is rare as a first or surname in the US. It comes from the name Zulema, of Arabic origin, and its meaning is peace. It sounds like Cyma, Syma, Sima, Cima and Soma. Other similar baby names are Zuba, Yuma and Zulma.
Nesta is pronounced NESS-tah. It is of Welsh origin and avariant of Agnes. It means pure and holy.
Rock is a variant of Rocco (German and Italian origin). Actor Rock Hudson, who was originally named Roy Scherer, made the name famous. It means rest.
Other name trivia:
Zuma Rock (together) is a large monolith located in Nigeria. It is sometimes referred to as Gateway to Abuja.
As mentioned before Bob Marley's birth name was Robert Nesta Marley. He also passed down Nesta onto his son Ziggy Marley (real name David Nesta). Ziggy then went on to pass Nesta down to his second son by naming him Gideon Robert Nesta."

Michael Phelps doesn't have a girlfriend, but he celebrated his record-breaking eight gold medals in Beijing by sneaking off for a sizzling game of tonsil hockey with one of Australia's hottest Olympians.

Phelps, fresh from shattering Mark Spitz's 36-year-old record, was spotted Monday night in a hot make-out session with Down Under swimmer Stephanie Rice, a source tells The Post's Clemente Lisi and Luke Dennehy. The pumped-up pair clinched and swapped spit at a celebratory bash outside the Olympic Village.

The Baltimore Bullet swooped in for the lip-lock with the 20-year-old brunette just weeks after she split from Aussie swimmer Eamon Sullivan. "All the swimmers are talking about it, and [Sullivan] is cut up about what happened," the source said.

The day after the face-sucking frolics, Phelps and Rice cheekily posed together for Speedo - laughing and playfully groping each other as a photographer snapped them in their swimsuits. "I definitely admire him for his athletic ability and everything he's achieved," gushed Rice, who won three gold medals of her own. "I'm just really glad to be in the mix with that."

Whether the dynamic duo is now a couple isn't known. Phelps' rep didn't return our calls.

Since winning, the 6-foot-4 wonder has been linked to US swimmer Amanda Beard, who posed nude for Playboy, and British model Lily Donaldson. Both have denied ever dating him, with Beard going as far as to fume, "Eww, that's nasty."

Meanwhile, Simon & Schuster's Free Press imprint has signed Phelps to write "Built To Succeed," a behind-the-scenes look at the training regimen that led to his victorious performances. It'll be out in December. Sources say Phelps got a $1 million advance in anticipation of its doing better than his 2005 tome, "Beneath the Surface," which sold only 10,000 copies.

Kenneth,
I read your story about the closeted actor who raped a former boyfriend. All of the names listed were wrong, it was actually Will Smith. You and Page 6 were wrong about some of the other details as well. The former boyfriend did report Will to the Lost Hills Sherrifs Department. The payoff was done to keep him from pressing charges. The charges were indeed dropped. The former boyfriend also needed surgery because his anus had a small split called a fisure after the incident.

To set the record straight, it wasn't rape, it was more of rough play that the two played on many occasions. It got out of hand and Will didn't stop. He's not a rapist but he and his wife both live a life filled with lies. They don't have sex with each other or in thier home. They live in Hidden Hills but they have a seperate home in nearby Agoura Hills just for sex with others. If this world were more accepting of gay people, I think Will and Jada would be living happy, honest lives with other people. On a final note, I was one of Will's boyfriends for a while. I think we all get a max of 4 months and then he moves on.

Let's do some parsing here, shall we?

"Seinfeld does represent sort of a challenge," says Brian Steinberg, television editor for the weekly advertising magazine Ad Age. "He's not Dane Cook. He's got a more sophisticated everyday take on things.

[So the ad won't be a piece of danecook. That still doesn't convince me there won't be a bit of celinedion in it.]


He often comes across as a questioner of conventional wisdom but also can be kind of a crank. It's a fine line to walk when you're dealing with a younger person."

Zuma? Really? Isn't that some sort of drink that was popular back in the 1980s? Oh, sorry, that's Zima.

Bruce is looking a little grizzled these days. Boy needs a sandwich.

Heigl just needs to go away. Every time I hear something about her I like her less, and I was never a big fan.

"I can only assume that a bunch of British couples had a 'brand new pair of roller skates' and a 'brand new key' back in the late 60's." --MoCoSnarky

Boy, I love Wikipedia:

* "Brand New Key" became a novelty hit in 1971-2.
* Melanie Jayne Chisholm (born 12 January 1974 in Whiston, Merseyside)
* Melanie Janine Brown (born 29 May 1975) in Leeds, West Yorkshire

Close enough, Sherlock, er, MoCo. Well done.

* Following the January, 1994 attack on Nancy Kerrigan, a parody of "Brand New Key" circulated on radio stations. The parody featured lyrics from Tonya Harding's point of view, and included the chorus,

I've got a brand new pair of figure skates,
You've got a busted knee;
They're gonna lock up my ex-husband and throw away the key

Right. Onto business. The Phelps/Aussie thing is a bit of a surprise--one of the LA Times Olympics bloggers claimed the other day that yes, Phelps has a girlfriend and that she's stunning and that he's seen them together, but no, he's not taking pics out of respect for their privacy.

Welcome back byoolin.

As yesterday, I concur with td about the pregnancy announcements. No issue with birth announcements, they're news. Pregnancy announcements just make me think, "Good, you had sex and it took. Big deal."

Right now, they get to play the "I'm fertile and you're not" game with their peers.

Thanks for the education on Herbs vs Spices, Sasquatch, I actually did look at the site. Who knew you could learn something new on Celebritology blog. If it comes up on "Are you smarter than a fifth grader" and I win, I'll give you a cut. Personally I think some of you are rather into herbs.

I'm a couple of days late with this but I just read that Julius Carry died Wednesday. I'm sure he's more famous for other things but I remember him fondly as Lord Bowler on 'The Adventures of Briscoe County'. Maybe I'm the only goofball here who liked that show.
