Friday List: Your Hetero Celebrity Crush?

Angelina Jolie and Tina Fey, two of my hetero crushes. (AP) What better way to pass Thanksgiving eve than with a mid-week Friday List? Think of it as my gift to you. And myself. Today's listage was inspired by this piece I happened upon, in the otherwise v. good Daily Beast (Tina Brown's answer to Huffington Post). If, by chance, you are Tina Brown averse, I'll summarize -- author Jessie Klein expends approximately 800 words gushing about her girl crush, Jennifer Aniston: The Aniston is funny, in that way that people learn to be when late blooming beauty makes personality a necessity rather than a choice.

Comment Box: For Stars, It Pays to Marry

(AP) Bad breakups: Going back a bit, but wasn't Johnny Carson's breakup with his third wife Joanna considered the most expensive divorce at the time? He got his money's worth, though, in comic value. -- Submitted to last week's Celebritology Live discussion Johnny Carson's 1985 divorce settlement -- three years in the making -- left the longtime "Tonight Show" host's wallet $20 million dollars lighter and was definitely a big payout for the time.
