There's something about the words "Jude Law promotes peace" that strike me as odd.

It's amazing that Amy Whinehouse can get out of bed, every other month there's a new medical issue with that woman.

I think maybe my grandparents were Barbara Eden and Larry Hagman. I remember in the late 60's, they would visit me in my living room....she always wore pink and he was in the military.....

Then again, maybe I'm related to a sheriff from somewhere in the North Carolina. I remember him whistling to me and taking me fishing.....

On James Gandolfini's wedding:

I noticed that all the gossip sites referred to her as a model, so I looked her up on IMDB. Two separate roles on the Red Shoe Diaries.

Way to go, James. Way to go.

And the Spacey pix: pretty much confirmed for me what I already knew.

I'm loving the Palin coverage. If this keeps up by next week we'll have news of a love child, a UFO abduction, and the Federal Witness Protection Program.

Way to stay classy about the mother of your child there Alec.

I loved Helen Mirren's reasons for giving up coke. Yes, you should give it up because it is bad for you. But, if you can't, then giving it up to keep from helping war criminals is an excellent second reason. Her date rape comment just shows she is a different generation.

Amy Winehouse "sick." More like stoned out of what mind she has left -- again.

Again, I would like to reiterate that not everyone on this blog is a liberal. Let's keep the politics over in the politics blog, unless relevant to celebritlogy. Even then, snark the celebrities.

The only thing I can rightfully conclude about this morning's Morning Mix is that Helen Mirren needs to be John Mayer's next girlfriend.

Helen Mirren, wow, who knew? I've lost all respect for her. Some opinions (and everyone is entitled to their own), however, some opinions should remain unsaid. And it she thinks she is a little bit cooler to us in the younger generation for revealing her druggie past, think again. Definitely not something to brag about.

JLo and Marc A. need Cesar Milan. What dopes for bringing a known vicious dog like that on a small Gulf Stream or any plane for that matter? $5 million does seem a bit steep however.

And poor Madonna. Good help is so hard to find these days....

Remember this old Post article? Sadly, Helen is probably correct about what is prosecutable in England. Very little justice there for violent crimes against women.

Posted by: Sasquatch looks down and admires his gift-wrap job | September 2, 2008 11:39 AM | Report abuse

PLACED, people, "placed" for adoption! Putting on my adoptive-parent hat for a sec. No one says (or should say) "given up" anymore. Back to the snark:

* Lucy definitely has some 'splainin' to do. The question is what WAS Lucy doing in 1947? All those MGM musicals were earlier, and "I Love Lucy" was later. I mean, the baby kinda looks like Desi Arnaz, but then again, it's a baby and they all tend to look alike until a certain age anyway.

* Kevin Spacey photo -- how can you even tell WHAT he's doing, other than wonder what's with the Choo-Choo Charlie get-up.

* If Alec Baldwin really wanted to insult Kim Basinger, he would've called her a 150-lb. actress.

To really insult Kim Basinger, he should have called her a "former actress." What has she been up to these days? Poor thing can't even get a reality TV show with a pig pooping in her kitchen (not a euphemism, BTW).

Yet another "dark" Celeb news bit for today, "Mr Voiceover" Don LaFontaine passed away today due to complications from a collapsed lung. He was only 68 - what a loss. I love his voice - he's up there with Alan Rickman and Patrick Stewart who could read a menu and make it sound good. Depending on the entree, I think his reading would have an edgier, dangerous quality. Probably fitting for some of the greasy spoons I've eaten in.

The end of that Madonna article: "If they really think she's about to befriend [her tour crew] and treat them like they're on her level, they're crazy!"

Amen to that! Anyone who saw "Madonna: Truth or Dare" knows that she only "befriends" her dancers and backup singers ("my kids" she called them -- admittedly pre-Lourdes). She holds hands with them, prays, then turns and rips them a new one every time they make a minor mistake on stage.

Then they go back to playing Truth or Dare backstage like nothing happened and keep inventing new uses for Evian bottles.

With that in mind, do Madonna's crew members ("crew members"?! Dear God, I sound like Captain Chesapeake) really want to be befriended?!

Wow, td, I can't believe I never heard that about James Arness and Peter Graves before, but I just verified it on Wiki. Thanks for the bit of trivia.

I think I understand what Helen Mirren was trying to say, but it still makes me sad and disappointed. This is why celebs really need to keep their mouths shut and retain the mystery. Familiarity truly does breed contempt.

(Oh, and they ALL need to stay out of political discussions.)

What's wrong with this blog is the rash of troll posts cutting and pasting from other blogs and the Nancy BS. Not to mention posts complaining about how rotten the blog has become.

Snark on the pretty and ugly people who have chosen to lead lives in the spotlight and are fair game for our barbs, or go home.

Helen Mirren "said she gave up the drug after learning that Nazi war criminal Klaus Barbie had been making money from the drug in South America."

It's all about Helen.

Coincidentally, I gave up Kentucky Fried Chicken after learning that Colonel Sanders had been making money from the chicken all across North America.

"We're all drunk. Only onstage can you openly drink on your last night." --John Mayer

And if I paid good money to attend that particular concert, I'd tell Johnny Boy to give me my money back. Because I would be expecting a good show from a talented musician, not a sloppy performance from a drunk, tired, serial letch who might start slurring at any moment in between sips.

Either he was kidding. Or he's a colossal jerk. Or perhaps both.

Madonna is an idiot. It's axiomatic that you treat your crew and supporting cast well, generating good will gets you better work and a great environment.

We shot a short film on a shoestring budget and the one place we did not skimp in the slightest was the food--first class catering for the meals and a seriously stocked craft service table. Made the cast and crew happy, everyone worked long hours and overtime for free.

Well, Amos Moses was a Cajun
He lived by himself in the swamp.
He hunted alligator for a livin'
Just knock 'em in the head with a stump.
The Lousisana law gonna get you, Amos!
It ain't legal huntin' alligator down in the swamp, boy!

Well, everybody blamed his old man
For makin' him mean as a snake.
When Amos Moses was a boy,
His Daddy would use his for alligator bait.
Tie a rope around his waist and throw him in the swamp!

About forty-five minutes southeast of Thibodeaux, Lousisiana
Lived a man called Doc Milsap and his pretty wife Hanna.
Well, they raised up a son who could eat up his weight in groceries.
Named him after a man of the cloth,
Called him Amos Moses.

Now all the folks around south Louisiana
Said Amos was a hell of a man.
He could trap the biggest,
The meanest alligator,
And just use one hand.
That's all he got left cuz the alligator bit it!
Left arm gone clean up to the elbow!

Unless you're Amy Winehouse. Then, you can drink pretty much whenever you'd like.

She is a mess!!!!!!!!!I seemed to see she had a personal account on hot hook-up club +++DaTeRiChSiNglEs+++for wealthy singles/celebs with her sexy photos. The blog was updated very often. Lots of guys joined in her friend circle there.
