Thanks for not having a visual with the Amy Winehouse story.

Let's let Suri make her own decisions regarding body hair, shall we?

If Charlize Theron didn't like the "The Hills," wait until she sees the new "Knight Rider." It's even more DaneCookier.

If anyone can make an "Alice in Wonderland" that's even weirder than its source material, it's Tim Burton.

Ted McGinley cancelled instead of the show he's on? Owe, the humanity!

Kirk Cameron won't kiss on screen. So move along, Clay Aiken.

The Amy Winehouse story has to be wrong: when was the last time she left the house wearing anything other than sweatpants and that red bra?

Lindsay Lohan returning to her former partying habits - but only to get her dad those meds she says he needs.

The story about Natalie Portman and Devendra Banhart going to Splitsville (described in Defamer as "making a clean break from her hirsute paramour's patchouli-stinking grip.... after a V For Vendetta-style shearing and 48-hour delousing quarantine") did give at least one man hope.

"Moby's very brief reconciliation with Natalie," a sequel to "Moby's "very brief affair" with Natalie," the stage play:

ACT I, SCENE 1

[A well-appointed and tastefully decorated room.]

SFX: A telephone rings. NATALIE PORTMAN enters.

NATALIE: Hello?

[A pause as Natalie listens to the caller]

NATALIE: What? Uh, NO. I did NOT break up with HIM to go out with YOU.

[NATALIE hangs up the phone]

NATALIE (to herself): Nerd.

Somehow I don't think the issue of whether or not the she wears fur, will be the biggest problem Suri faces as a kid.

The idea of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp teaming to remake Alice in Wonderland kinda scares me. Of course, Lewis Carrol was stoned out of his mind when he wrote it. So it sorta makes sense. But, still scary.

Of course, the really scary thing is that Alex Baldwin believes that all his personal attacks against the mother of his child and being a custody battle for umpteen years is justified. A good parent would recognize the effect of this on the child and back away. No, mom wins no prizes here either. Does the kid have grandparents?

byoolin and Dorkus have already beat me to the punch re: Kirk Cameron. But I'll jump in anyway.

The real question is, who is ASKING him to kiss on-screen? I mean I'm all for honoring a promise, but that's just stupid. He's an actor (well, technically).

(Psst, Kirk? Hello? Getting to kiss other women is the best part of being an actor because it's part of the job. I'm sure Chelsea would understand. Sheesh, Kirk, you are so dumb!)

Sounds more like Chelsea is the jealous type.

Must be a slow news day when Charlize Theron's opinion of a TV show merits media coverage. She sure is pretty, though.

Britney's hair -- I've lost track. She shaved it, then it was growing in, then she had extensions, after that it's all a blur. Surely there's a Chia-pet-like video out there somewhere tracking this, right?

All these remakes. Does Tim Burton not have any original thoughts? C'mon, just remake "The Wizard of Oz" next and get it over with. You know you're dying to. Cast Winona Ryder as Dorothy, Johnny Depp as the Scarecrow, etc.

Bag "Alice," go for the gold with "Wizard" and just get it out of your system.

It's none of their business what other people put on their children.

Except that in this case it is. Last year Giorgio Armani told PETA he'd stop using fur. Then he turned around and presented fur clothing for babies and children this year. Combine this with the fact that the company sends Armani clothes to TomKat in hopes they'll dress Suri in them... and then yes, it does reasonably become PETA's business, in that it appears Armani lied to the organization simply in order to avoid further hassle.

Hey, no one's commented on the David Blaine story. The photo of Kelly Ripa hanging upside down with him is great. Like her or not, the lady's got spunk.

Too bad she couldn't have combined her aerial suspension with her product endorsements and held an Electrolux during her Blaine interview.

Well, yes...

I *hate* spunk!

Nosy Parker: so Armani is somehow in the wrong for lying to PETA???? I think he should keep on lying - "no Peta, it's not real fur - it's fake - now go back to whining about cow milk used for ice cream at Ben & Jerry's"

Yeah, Suri. No fur. Tear off your own head, it's a doll revolution.

Aaah yes, PETA, that high minded organization that never lies. Do we have any proof that Armani told PETA he would stop using fur -- other than PETA saying he said he would? Or what about their lying about loving animals while strangling them out by the dumpster? I'm sure with a little googling you could find more.

PETA should be lied to often. While one is wearing fur and/or leather.

"Lindsay Lohan says her dad needs more meds... "

Well, lord knows, she's got the expertise... One OD away from a Pharm.D. degree, is that girl.

I hate PETA. Their smug, self-righteousness just irks the crap out of me. Last I checked, we humans are the top of the food chain, and if we want to skin small animals to make warm coats, then it's our god-given right to do so. So go boil your tofu, PETA, and just leave everyone else the heck alone. [I can't believe I'm actually taking a stance that could be construed as defending TomKat. I need to go lie down now.]

Fireproof a great film - and Kirk Cameron is a great lead. With all of life's problems and complexity, it's a relief to see a lead character who takes on those challenges and shows us all how to work through them with a few solid, time-tested principles.
It's like administering a computer network - no matter what problems come up, if you apply best practices, you always get things back under control.
