I'd love to be at Maddox's playdate with Crocodile Dundee's kid. "That's not a knife..."


Way to pile on, Sharon O. You know Nicole Kidman's already self-conscious about those 'get your digital tv converter' crawls across her forehead.


Kenny Chesney "says he has 'no idea'" what Rene Zellwegger will think about the song he's written. How about, "Who? Really? That gay - er - guy I was married to?"


Miley Cyrus' memoir will be the first-ever composed entirely in Twitter.


Best title not chosen for Daisy's new show: "Dumber Than A Rock of Love."


Paul, I'll boycott McDonalds - if you can get me Ringo's autograph.


You just *know* that somewhere in a vault there's gotta be a copy of "A Very Brady Orgy" that nobody but the cast has ever seen.

I would just like to point out that the latest issue of US Weekly has yet another (new) pic of Shiloh toting a bag of Cheetos. that is all.

Sharon Osbourne likens Nicole Kidman's forehead to "a flat screen TV

-To which I say I liken Kelli Osbourne to a wide-screen TV.


Terrence Howard don't feel bad about losing the role in Iron Man II, look what happened to Billy Dee Williams in the Batman movies.


A better headline would have been: Heather Mills steps out in thigh high leather boot. (Why does she even need the other boot)


Thanks byoolin, now I have the image in my head of Greg Brady saying "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia."

How cute, Angelina! Encouraging your son to continue this charming family tradition (as described in the article):

In a 2003 interview with 20/20, she admitted that, as a teen, she once had a relationship that involved ritual self-mutilation.

"I got knives out and had a night where we attacked each other... it felt so primitive and it felt so honest... and then I had to deal with, you know, not telling my mother, hiding things, wearing gauze bandages to high school," she said.

Sorry I complained about the moving. Now, take the knives away and resume moving frantically around the world - it's healthier!

There's nothing wrong with a 7 year old having knives, I got my first Cub Scout pocket knife when I was that age. As long as she teaches him it's not a toy and to handle it responsibly i don't see any issue with it.

No one does fish lips quite like Angelina. And one day, daughter Shiloh is either going to cringe at that bare-to-the-waist shot or re-create it for 90-year-old Herb Ritts.

Byoolin! "A Very Brady Orgy" is the funniest thing ever. Comment of the YEAR. But MAN, Maureen McCormick, leave something -- A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G -- unsaid. Did I need to read:

* Dating Steve Martin: "But I was insecure and either high or spaced out (most likely both), and I didn't laugh at his jokes."
* Cocaine binges
* Parties at the Playboy Mansion and the home of Sammy Davis Jr.
* An unwanted pregnancy
* Trading sex for drugs

It's just too much! If her book also reveals intimate encounters with Herve Villechaise during her guest spots on "Fantasy Island," I may need therapy.

It's all Eve Plumb's fault (isn't it always Jan's fauly?!). After all, she started it when she portrayed "Dawn: Portrait of a Teenage Runaway" -- little did we know Miss Oh-My-Nose! was living the real story.

I am so looking forward to Miley's memoir. She's such a significant human being and has contributed so much to humanity.

Uh, Angelina, we already knew you were batsh!t crazy, but thanks for re-confirming for us.

I got a total-body "yuuuuuuck" out of that Maureen McCormick quote. Guess I won't run out to buy that book.

And Sharon Osbourne is the most hilarious thing out there. I had been struggling to compare Nicole's forehead to something, now that task has been done for me. Sweet!

It pains me to agree with Sharon Osbourne, but she is 100% correct about Nicole Kidman. I don't think she's been able to move her eyebrows since that dreadful Batman movie she was in.

She's also obviously had lip injections...check out stills from Days of Thunder vs. ones from Stepford Wives...

Aw man, I can't get around the Brady stuff. Now I'm hearing in my head various cast members saying, "something suddenly came up."

Hey wats, thanks for the Brangelina Cheetos sighting. I wonder if any of the shots made it into W magazine?

Paul hates McD's, Pam hates KFC. What's a junk-food-lovin' celebrity to do?

Janet Jackon's "doctor" is code for her manager, who is checking the ticket receipts and realizing that Janet's past her look-at-me-I'm-still-sexy expiration date. "Let's Wait Awhile" before the image recast. Come back as Sade.

I hope Janet has a good money manager, because she's the only Jackson who still has any cash -- and her niece's and nephews' masks don't grow on trees.

Normally, getting a seven year old a knife would not be a bad thing. But, first of all this knives, as in plural. Second, I doubt these are kid-friendly Scout knives. Third, when mom has a history of cutting, then providing the tools necessary for the kids to do so is just stupid.

Next they'll tell us that Alice had something going with Greg. Or there really is a very Brady orgy tape. I don't feel so good now.

Brit is closer to a 2009 tour. Oh happy happy joy joy.

With all the stuff Miley put out on You tube and in blogs, what's left for the memoir?

Sharon Osbourne really shouldn't talk about other people's features.

Poor Heather, she isn't seeking attention the poor dear blew through her winnings and now has to work the corner.

"and her niece's and nephews' masks don't grow on trees." - lol, td

At a time when a lot of musicians are breaking newish ground by releasing internet-only albums, Kenny Chesney is bringing it all full circle by releasing a homemade mix tape.

After reading the lyrics to the song about her - Trinidad Charlie? - if this is as deep as it gets, I can see why she left. Totally cringe-worthy.

The pic of Heather Mills says it all:

She's walking down the street in her own world (concentrate, you can hear the "I'm too sexy" song that's obviously playing in her head), meanwhile there are two scruffy looking men watching her boots like it's a sideshow.

Perfect portrait of a monopedal pornlet.

Dorkus, she called the knives "daggers". I don't think he is going to be whittling anything with those. Hopefully she hasn't actually given them to him. But can you imagine Maddox saying " ok, it's me, Knox and Pax against Shiloh, Vivienne, and Zaharra. First one to bleed loses!" ?

Hey, do think Madonna has trouble at airports in those heels?

Sounds like Lisa Marie now has her own law firm, Finley, Harper & Presley Esq.

It's just really hard for us "normals" to see them as anything other than brother & sister, even though technically they all were step-brother & step-sister & if that were the IRL situation, it'd all be legal & good but it's STILL kinda icky even in imaginary TV land.

I don't think I'm going out on limb here, but there is no way possible that Miley Cyrus has lived such a full life that her memiors could fit on anything larger that a cocktail napkin. Someone needs to teach her the difference between a short story and a memoir.

Although I can't believe she ruined her lips with those injections, I gotta defend Nicole Kidman here. 1, I have the same coloring as she does, and always wear a big hat, big dark glasses, and sunscreen -- and have no wrinkles at all. And 2, my in-laws know the Kidmans, and say Nicole never goes out in the sun and always wears a big hat, big dark glasses, and sunscreen. Her smooth skin might well be natural.

Now that I've got that out of my system, I can snark. Jesus, Angelina is nuttier than squirrel poop. Her dad was right on -- she has serious mental issues. And my god, what's with those ginormous lips? They just get bigger and bigger.

Those photos do not look like candid family shots to me. They look totally posed -- Brad, remember, the woman IS an actress!

Another shameless plug for my upcoming film 'Quantum of Solace'. Look for yours truly in the yelling crowd scene at the piazza il Campo in Sienna. I'm the one with the ice cream cone standing next to the Neil Patrick Harris look alike.

Best thing Jennifer Aniston ever did was get rid of Brad Pitt. What he apparently wants is a broodmare who is either adopting, pregnant, suckling one of her gazillion offspring, getting tattoos, or on a plane to a different country every day. And that's just the wacky stuff the public knows about.

I think the pic of Angelina with Shiloh and Pax is really beautiful.

Also it seems like she's trying to diffuse some of the criticism about moving around so much by talking about how adaptable the kids are and how much they all enjoy each other, sounding like a solid loving family.

I don't know about the knives thing. If they're collectibles, like ceremonial daggers or whatever, I don't have an issue with it (I wanted a japanese samurai sword when I was a kid, not to use, but because they are such a work of art and craftsmanship).

Kenny Chesney...dude, it's over, past, finished, get it? Next thing you know he'll write a song about the Miley Cyrus Vanity Fair pictures.

What a sad and bizarre short life for Guillame Depardeau.

Agree with you completely, Spartan. I thought maybe she is human afterall, what with the junk food addiction and that great picture of her snarfing down a burger. I thought maybe I could forgive their jettsetting lifestyle because who wouldn't want to travel the world (I'm actually jealous on that account). Maybe the kid collecting is from a sincere love of children and not a weird fetish to have a kid from every continent. But nooooo, then she has to say her favorite hobby was knife fights and she is encouraging her children to do the same, well that is just cuckcoo for cocopuffs. Back to the top of the snark list.

Kenny Chesney was on GMA this morning. He sang a song w/ the lyrics "Went to bed at 2 with a 10. Woke up at 10 with a 2." Guess he really is dating again.

td, it maybe that Jay Z (I think he lifted the ban on Cristal)is thinking of the current economic situation and wants to come in at a low bid thus beating out others. The joke is on him because you can get Tara Reid for 3k. Probably less.
