When your own mother writes a "tell all" book about you, now that is sad. As much as we love to snark about Britney, I feel terrible for her that her mother would chose to capitalize on Britney's mistakes and her own failed parenting.

Lindsay turns down playboy...Good for her. Maybe she is starting to grow up. 'Bout time.

Amy Winehouse orders 48 bottles of Jack Daniels? Wasn't there an article just two days ago saying she was brain damaged? I take it she is no longer hospitalized (for now). Wonder what it will take for her to hit rock bottom? Another sad story.

Why would Playboy bother? Everyone's already seen it all anyway.

You'd know Lynn, since you pushed it all on her.

Wow, I guess Amy really is cutting back.

Wow, Lynn Spears makes Dinah Lohan look like a capable mother, but you know only in the sense that every other mother on the face of the planet had you know been excluded from this comparison.

I haven't really watched ER in a while but Dr. Green was always my favorite, maybe its because I still think of him as Goose and kept hoping that whenever a new patient would come in he'd say 'It's time to kick some tires and light some fires.'

Maybe Carrie Underwood should try not looking like a skeleton before she starts commenting on people's weight.

And Kanye, way to stick to your principles. Yeah you showed MTV.

I like Hugh Grant, but really how does he keep getting these incredibly attractive girls to go out with him? Is it the accent, the foppishness, his unbridled dorkiness? Please someone let me know.

Lynn Spears ought to be ashamed of herself. What is it with these mothers who don't protect their daughters? I'm no Britney fan, but she didn't deserve that.

On the one hand, LiLo turning down Playboy is a classy move. On the other, it means I still have to figure out a way to get a camera installed in her shower.


In new book, Britney Spears details mother Lynn's shameless peddling of her children's dirty laundry for profit.


Kanye West, talk to Akon - he may be able to help you out with crowd control.


Lance Armstrong says he doesn't date much... but when he does, he has a ball.


Ms. Underwood and Ms. Simpson need to know that nobody is interested in watching them call one another names. But if they're interested in each wearing one half of a Stars & Stripes bikini and wrestling in a tub of Nutella, and there's nothing good on tv that night, call me.


Amy Winehouse is really cutting back on the Jack since hubby went to gaol.


Jewel's tour bus driver falls asleep at the wheel... after ONE VERSE of "Who Will Save Your Soul."

Suddenly, Britney's problems seem even more created by her mother than previously revealed.

Why, why, why would her mother write such a painfully explicit book about her young teenage daughter's sexual experiences? How does she even know? If she knew, why didn't she take her daughter away from all of the trash? Britney began drinking as a 13-year-old??

Sex when she was 14? I don't understand how the mother knows - how did the conversation go? "Mom, I had sex with that football player over there."

"Great job, honey!! More material for my book!"


How sad.

I don't know, I think hodie has a fair point. I'm certainly thankful my mom has kept some of those darker moments of my past to herself (you know, like that stolen candy bar when I was 5...).

The only thing funnier than Jessica Simpson annoucing the "love of her life" in a magazine (definite sign of impending relationship demise) is Carrie Underwood calling her fat. This is like the best of high school - watching dippy blondes battle it out over the jock. And thanking God you're not either one of them.

It's odd to present yourself as a maverick to the most partisan audience imaginable, as John McCain did Thursday night.
It wasn't that long ago that McCain was the Republican most admired among Democrats. But some of that glow has faded. He's certainly doing his best to regain some of that luster. He didn't talk much at all about divisive social issues: a brief reference to his support for life, no talk of gay issues, a brief reference to judges that don't legislate from the bench but no extended focus on social issues. That's not the core of his agenda.
But in a moment sure to be featured in campaign ads from now to November, he paid tribute to the sitting Republican president, George W. Bush.

In McCain's attempt to fire up the Republican base without losing his "maverick" image, calls for reform have come to mean a pledge to "change" Washington -- with little explanation of what that change would be or how that change would take effect. Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius (D), a prominent Obama ally, questioned Palin's stated goal of battling earmarks when as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, she hired a Washington lobbyist to secure millions of federal dollars for pet projects. Obama spokesman Bill Burton said that would be only an opening salvo. "If your case that you're a reformer is based on a complete fabrication, we're going to make sure the American people know the truth," he said.

Quoting from the NY Daily News on Lynn Spears' book: "By age 16, Britney's wild-child behavior stunned her family when she was caught with cocaine and marijuana..." But two-time Parent of the Year award-winner Lynn couldn't bring herself to have her minor child committed to an inpatient drug treatment facility?

Further proof that there should be a licensing exam for procreation.

Yeah, your mother knows you are out of control, but lets it continue in order to keep the cash rolling in. Then, when the money slows, uses the facts learned during that out of control period to write a tell-all book. The exploitation of this kid just continues.

Parents, your job is to raise your children and provide for them. Not the other way around. If you are living off your kid(s), you are officially out of the running for any Parent of the Year Awards. You don't even have to Heigl your name.

Dr. Green married Dr. Corday. They had a whole show about the trials and tribulations of Green trying to get to the wedding on time through a Chicago flood.

Britney's dad is not off the hook either here. He apparently knew what was going on and did nothing. He only recently stepped up to the plate to control the outflow of money to anyone but the family.

Agree with so many of you that Momma Spears is, and has evidently long been, beyond contempt. The worst of it may be that she seems to have gotten her vicarious ya-yas off from Britney's wild behavior, rather than trying either to control her underage daughter or get her the professional help she needed.

luvlinsey, I believe you are mistaken Lindsay Lohan has never EVER won an Oscar, Emmy or Grammy, but she has won many other awards such as, a Teen Choice Award and MTV Movie Award and of course the Razzie. Those are good too.

Do most Americans really care more about personality than policy? I mean, folks are going gaga about Palin without really knowing what she actually stands for and how it will affect their life. I have to say this is very clever marketing by the Republicans (the moose shooting, sweet talking, reform toting ex-beauty pageant hockey mom with a hunky husband to boot) but it is also what make most people cynical about politics. At least Obama and Biden aren't afraid to talk about policy while the McCain crowd is all to eager to make it about biography.

He is very popular here - they've even renamed Sixth (or possibly Eighth) Street in Glen Dale, WV after him.

My tangential brush with Celebrity is that the dad of one of The Kid's best friends was Brad's manager early in his career.

Palin is a gift to SNL. Think of the sketch possibilties:

"Will and Grace " - Karen is played by "Palin".

"Bewitched" - Gladys Kravitz is played by "Palin".

Any kind of Tina Fey thing - Tina Fey is played by "Palin", who is played by Tina Fey.

Remember that SNL's new season starts in mid-October.

With any luck, SNL will only get two or three chances to do Palin sketches before she's consigned to the dustbin of history. Or possibly an actual dustbin.

Divorce papers reveal Hulk Hogan's net worth
September 5, 2008
3:13 p.m. ET

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) -- Hulk Hogan and his estranged wife are wrangling over how much money the celebrity wrestler is worth.

According to financial affidavits filed in divorce court near Tampa, Florida, Hogan claims his net worth is $32 million; his wife claims it's $26.7 million.

Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, reports that he's spending $38,000 a month on legal fees. Linda Bollea reports spending $7,000 on clothing, $7,500 on maid service and about $1,700 on jewelry each month.

The couple's quarreling over money comes as their son, Nick, is serving an eight-month jail sentence for causing a traffic crash that left a passenger permanently disabled.

Satchel, you're right! The first new one of the season is on the 13th, with our favourite comedian, Michael Phelps (or, as I've been calling him ever since I read that article in the Wall Street journal, "Maikeer Feierpusi").

I'm interested to see his arah Palin impression.
