Well, well, well.

Looks as if Someone made a BIG impression on our gal Madonna.

Maybe that's why they call him A-Rod?

Please, oh please, let the Jon Hamm/30Rock rumors be true. That would be great, for the show AND for Liz Lemon (not to mention Tina Fey even though she's married.)

"It's not known what the Bronx Bomber, 33, and the Material Mom, 50 - who insist they are just friends - did during their stay at Seinfeld's 12-acre spread."

Let's speculate:
* Sit through hours of old VHS tapes of A-Rod baseball games (both)
* Dance around house in a pink ballgown singing "Material Girl" (him)
* Adjust self in baseball pinstripes talking about balls (her)
* Play catch while watching "A League of Their Own" (both)
* Play Che (her) and Eva Peron (him) and lip-synch to "Evita" (both)
* Watch "Swept Away" and LAUGH (him)
* Plan sequel to "Truth or Dare" featuring Guy and A-Rod (both)

I thought the only race SJP was interested in was the Belmont Stakes.


Gwyneth is looking good in that picture. Maybe the GOOP is working for her.


Pete Wentz's goal "To make sure the baby's name would work as either "a rock star or a senator," he said."

-Yeah but the kid is still a Simpson/Wentz spawn, so I think there's a good chance the kid will never have enough talent to be a rock star, nor the brains to be a senator.


Seinfeld, A-Rod, Madonna all in one place? I'm surprised that convergence of egos didn't knock the Earth off of its orbit.


(12 hours till costume time...)

SJP must have a most sweet and soothing voice! It seems to have sent the volunteer next to her to sleep.

Gwyneth Paltrow's main symptoms: goopyness, souciance.


Michael Jackson says he won't be part of Jackson 5 reunion. Director Peter Jackson volunteers to fill in.


Janet Jackson cancels Connecticut concert. Peter Jackson? There for you, babe.


I can't wait to get me one of those Jessica Simpson "Private Valentine: Blonde & Dangerous" coasters.


Pete Wentz quotes Ashlee: "She's hot all the time," added Wentz. "She's like 'I wish I was in Canada right now.'" Nononononono - that's what you people have Alaska for.


If you don't read carefully, there's a sentence that looks like it says "Corey Haim engaged to "Princess of Scream" Estelle Reiner."


Celebs share sobriety stories. Because it's so much more interesting to hear Kelsey Grammer talk about the time he woke up sober and felt good about it than it is to hear about the time he snorted coke from a hooker's cleavage.


Peter Frampton: "I want you/ to show me the way/ my signs went."


Wonkette has a nice piece about how The Onion anticipated Joe the Plumber nearly ten years ago: http://wonkette.com/403984/the-onion-predicted-joe-the-plumber-crap-in-1993


It would seem that Coco-T knows as much about Hallowe'en as Ice knows about acting.

Is Joe Francis the new gaydar? I can't access the link until I get home.

At this point I think all Jessica Simpson movies can go straight to VHS.

On the upside Gwyneth was well enough to give the masses a GOOP update so she's done her part.

I'm confused, how does Coco's Halloween frock differ from what she wears every other day of the year?

OMG, Liz, thanks for the memories with the Sgt Pepper clip! I was a tweener when this came out originally and of course all of us were in love with Peter Frampton and the Bee Gees. You certainly do get a different perspective watching as an adult, however....

Katie Holmes, dominatrix?....not likely. I see her kept in a locked closet at home and let out occasionally when she has been very good. Notice you never see photos of Katie with other people unless Tom is there. (Suri doesn't count).

Oh come on Michael, why not join in the family reunion tour. I know you think they want to cash in on your past success as a singer/entertainer and current success as a weirdo (and I'm sure they do), but if there had never been a Jackson 5, would the world have ever known about you?

Gwyneth sick. Chris Martin sick. Janet cancels again. Mmmm. Is something going around attacking celebrities? Alert the NIH! We have to nip this in the bud now or else we might have to go back to the dark ages of reading books! Owe the humanity! (I really do hate that phrase, but seemed appropriate).

Stoopid double post.

Hmm...that's actually the best picture I've ever seen of Kim Kardashian. And is it a bad sign that I'm more interested in Katie Holmes' shoes than whatever outfit she's wearing from Overlord and Taylor?

Is it just me or does Ice T's wife look like she is a nano-second away from baring her fangs and going straight for the jugular for a nice blood supper? She scares me now, and she hasn't even taken her first sock off...

Knowing Cincinnati and Indian Hill the way I (unfortunately) do, I'd say Peter Frampton is lucky he didn't get a brick through his window.

Possum you are right about that! Didn't know that Peter Frampton was in my neck of the woods. Boy, has he not aged well... Are you in Cinci, Possum?

Dorkus, nice SJP/Belmont connection!

byoolin, I was thinking former MTV VJ J.J. Jackson might blend in more than Peter would. Nice idea either way. (Actually, Victoria Jackson is built more like Michael though; put a wig on her. . . . hmmm.)

And I've rethought the plans for Madonna and A-Rod. I've decided that they're just going to wear pinstriped sheets with eyeholes cut out and run around the house at night scaring the pants off Jerry's kids by waving flashlights and quoting TMZ stories as the Ghosts of Tabloid Fame Future.

I don't know if it's the new registration system, the lack of good gossip, or the presidential election, but comments on this blog have fallen off a cliff in recent weeks.

Russell Brand is like Robbie Williams. A guy who can't catch a cab here but is inexplicably famous in the U.K. Ever pick up Britain's HELLO! magazine? I'm lucky if I recognize anybody -- were it not for the sporadic shot of the Royal Family, Sting/Trudy Styler or Iman/David Bowie, I'd be completely lost.

Count me as surprised that Jerry Seinfeld is friends with Madonna much less that he pimps for her. I liked it better when he was hanging with Elaine and George.

And I think SJP looks lovely in that photo.

Hodie, I moved away long ago and now live on Possum Island.
If only Peter had lived there when I was growing up! There would have been scads of girls in peasant blouses, drinking Little Kings and stripping on his lawn!

I have a name prediction on the Simpson-Wentz baby.

"Wentz, 29, says 'She wants to have it because it's, like, a struggle to go up and down the stairs...going out in public's insane...She's like 'I wish I was in Canada right now.' Our room temperature is set to, like, 34 degrees. It's insane!'"

Fast forward to the delivery room. He's dutifully holding up her left leg. She pushes the baby out. He cries out, "IT'S INSANE!"

The nurses write down "Insane Simpson Wentz" on the name card. Destiny fulfilled.

Does SJP call voters and identify herself? Pretend she's Carrie Bradshaw? Either way it must seem like a gag for those on the receiving end of the phone.

"Hi, This is Sarah Jessica Parker and I want you to get out and vo-- what? Parker. P-A-R-no no no, you're thinking of Sarah Michelle Geller, she was Buffy -- I was on HBO for a while and originally started my career as Annie on Broadway a loooong time ago. That curly red wig was brutal! Why else would I be shilling Garnier Nutrisse now? Being an actress is murder on your scalp. Barack Obama really cares about -- oh, and before you ask, let me assure you that there's absolutely no truth to the rumor that my husband had an affair with some skanquey twentysomething -- what? Right, the election! That's why I'm calling, Samantha, er, Mrs. Elena Garcia of Queens! Please go to the polls on Tuesday and -- puh-leeze, like anybody would go for Matthew's doughy ol' body right now anyway, lemme tell you -- yes, yes, the election! Please pull the lever -- hee hee, er, nevermindskipit -- for Barack Obama and Joe Biden and join me and others in our special Elects in the City effort. Thank you for making a difference."

Did you catch Ice-T's response to his wife's comment?

Ice adds that he's not worried about guys' getting too frisky around his spouse: "Men know I'll punch them in the mouth, but women! You've got to pay attention to these girls, because they'll come right up and grope your chick in front of you."

Oh, it's just so romantic, it makes me want to cry. At least I think that's why I want to cry -- I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Joe Francis, huh? Silly me for not realizing "misogynist" and "girl expert" were synonymous.

Kim Kardashian should be banned from dressing as Wonder Woman. Kim does not have "The Gap" that devotees of Wonder Woman know and love. Many boys in early adolescence fantasized about Wonder Woman's Gap.

Hodie, Lynda Carter has become one of DC's High Society Cave Dwellers with her long marriage to power attorney Robert Altman. According to the Wikipedia entry, she's also recently gone into rehab for alcohol abuse. In a life-imitates-art episode, she recently found a dead body floating in the Potomac while on a rowing workout.
