Playboy's Unabashed Dictionary defines "wrinkled old bag" as (i) what Holly Madison will be in 60 years, and (ii) what she won't have to look at anymore once she moves out of the mansion.

As much as I hate Paris Hilton, I couldn't stop my self from laughing. Charlie Sheen popping in helped, but the bit was funny on its own.

Diddy needs to shut up! McCain screwed up royally with the "that one" comment, but let's not make this issue bigger than it needs to be. It showed that McCain is ignorant and out of touch. Let's not blow it up in the media and talk about it for the next month. Make your statement about "that one" on November 4th.

Why all the venom over the past few days for the "Girls Next Door." If you watched the show you would know that Holly, Bridget, and Kendra are very sweet and and if I dare say innocent. Their families are part of the show and there is nothing trashy about them.

My favorite thing about the JL Spears story is that they claim she didn't know she could get pregnant while breast feeding. So I can understand why that fun fact would be left out of normal sex ed talks - someone needs to have the birds and bees discussion with that girl already! Bring Bristol too!

Good morning - a belated shout out to Methinks. Hope you are enjoying your reunion with your son, home safe now from Iraq. Tell him thanks from all of us!

Turning to matters of celebritology, are Katie Holmes' leather leggings from the Lindsay Lohan collection?

Thanks, Brooke Hogan. We appreciate you looking out for us. *shudder*

Look at poor Suri all bundled up in that pic of Katie Holmes. Reminds me of Jack-o's kid Blanket.

It can't be normal to grow up thinking that you have to hide your face every time you go out.

I hope they're socking away some money for therapy (or for the oncoming Great Depression.)

Heck, I know of a doctor who made that mistake. She may have even been an OB-GYN. So it's either a serious misconception (pardon the pun) or it's a good "ooopsie" cover story.

Whoops - Brangelina - you're current home is in Berlin, NOT France! I can understand how you got confused, though. Hope some one can run over with your stuff if you decide to stay! (which I doubt).

Do we have to add giving your SO a chocolate model of your lady parts to our list of things leading up to the imminent break up? At least Holly finally realized that it was time to move on - she dated Hef for over FIVE years!

From the Josh Brolin story: "So why is Brolin going public with this now, three month after the incident and a month before the trial? Simple. He was waiting for the authorities in Louisiana to drop charges and make amends, to no avail."

BWAHAHA...it couldn't have anything to do with a certain movie coming out now, could it?

badabingo,
Thanks for the laugh this morning. The girls next door have nude pictures taken of themselves for a living, sleep with a 100 year old man, live in the Playboy mansion where wild parties are a weekly occurrence, and are too sleazy to ever have a real job.
I guess your definition of sweet and innocent is a lot different then most peoples definition.

Posted by: anon | October 9, 2008 9:40 AM | Report abuse

You know, for what it's worth I hope that when I'm 82 I look as good and have as much energy as the Hef. (And a couple 28 year girlfriends wouldn't be bad either)

Posted by: Dorkus | October 9, 2008 9:44 AM | Report abuse

So is Paris Hilton going to now make a career of making three minute Funny or Die videos?
I guess that's something of a step up from being a professional party girl/parasitic leech.

Posted by: methinks | October 9, 2008 9:46 AM | Report abuse

anon - There have been no wild parties going on at the Playboy mansion since the early 80's. All the parties today are corporate gigs where you rent out the facilities like you would rent any conference center. So posing nude makes you a horrible person, but playing violent pro sports and abusing you body to the point that have are pratically crippled by your 30s makes you a national hero.

And by the way if you don't think there are still wild parties going on at the Playboy mansion you are either very naive or very stupid.

Watch the show. The mansion is basically a hotel. The employees are totally normal people. There are no wild orgies.

I watched The Girls Next Door quite a bit. I completely believe that Holly had genuine affections for Hef. However, deluding yourself into thinking that you're going to snag an 82 year old guy into another marriage...with more kids... it gives blondes a bad name!

Kendra and Bridget are just along for the ride, although, I think Bridget, at 35, better get off soon!

So to speak...

Posted by: jes | October 9, 2008 10:24 AM | Report abuse

What side effects will the Brangelina fugue state have on the kids? Perhaps they will start speaking some weird language that only they know (combo of English/French/German/African dialect/Thai/Vietnemese etc). Does anyone speak Cajun anymore?

Dorkus, when you start making the moolah like Hugh, I'm sure you'll have your 28 girlfriends. Even if you are 100 and wear pajamas all day.

If the leather leggings weren't bad enough, Katie made them sooo much worse by trying to dress them down with a collared top and sweater. Is she going to a nightclub or a pta meeting? Somehow, I'm sure this is Tom's fault.

Posted by: hodie | October 9, 2008 10:26 AM | Report abuse

You tell 'em, Lauren Bacall! (Though why there's an article "celebrating" Nicole Kidman is beyond me. Is she ill or something?)

Nicole's quotes about Tom are most excellent -- basically says wow her love with Keith is amazing and "I hope Tom has the same thing" then later correcting herself with, er, I mean, "I know he has this," etc.

I am still mad at Mimi Rogers for introducing that nutjob to Scientology.

I can see Jason Priestly's directorial style now, "You need to get into the oeuvre of The Peach Pit. Feel it. Be it. Adding a scary dated D.A. and long sideburns help too. Good! Now, let's get to some ACTING!"

And methinks, my heartfelt thanks to your son for his service. Bravo.

Okay, Brangelina moving is no longer news. If they stay put in one place for a reasonable period of time -- then it is news.

The girls next door are NOT innocent. They appear nude for money, they have nothing that Hef does not give them. The one moving out is going with the clothes on her back and that is it. They knew the deal when they moved in. These are not the girls next door, they are the prostitutes next door.

John Cusack's stalker - isn't his testifying kinda like an unintentional reward to the stalker since she'll see him in the courtroom?

How awkward for him, though (I mean it's not like his friends are going, "you've made it dude! you have a STALKER!" anymore -- well, maybe Jeremy Piven is, as he holds up his Emmy and laughs manically).

Though if the stalker sees John and freaks out and drools or starts shouting lines from "Say Anything," I imagine it would only help his case.

Actually, breast feeding does block ovulation, just not very effectively. She'd be better off using actual birth control, but there is a basis for that belief.

Maybe the Brangelina children will speak one of those languages like Papiamentu or Esperanto.
And a smattering of English, naturlich.

I idea that breastfeeding will prevent you from becoming pregnant is an idea from classic folk medicine. It does to a certain degree but is not effective enough to rely on. In most third world countries this is a common practice. In fact when Nestle started pushing baby formula on poor people in Africa the claim that it would increase the birth rate was a criticism.

I am no Posh fanatic (or hater) but I've seen this woman in far more better ensembles than Ms. Barton. 90% of the outfits I've seen Mischa wear were just plain hideous. Her character on the OC dressed better than she does. Mischa is KRAZAR!
