Amy Winehouse is in the hospital? Damn, I had "morgue" in the office pool.


Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt elope. Rats. I also had "go to the morgue" in *that* office pool. (Although that was more of a wish than a prediction.)


Miley Cyrus at law firm party: they know that (no matter what her dad thinks) she's too young to pop out of a cake, right?


First time in a long time that we've seen the words "Steven Seagal" and "reality" in the same sentence.


Boy George "beat and handcuffed me": Yes, he really wants to hurt you.

Lawfirms don't pull those kinds of shenanigans anymore - they finally caught on that the laws regarding liability do in fact apply to them too. Individual lawyers and the copyroom, though, that's a whole 'nother story!

Lets hope we're not reading that same headline about suri cruise 20 years from now.

"SNL" alum Horatio Sanz drops 100 pounds...

-Oh I hope it didn't land on his foot.


I didn't think it was possible at this point for Amy Winehouse to have a bad reaction to a medication. What was it a multi-vitamin?


Madonna is divorcing Guy for his "unreasonable behavior", like what? Not buying into all that Kabballah crap?


Can we please just get rid of Heincer now?


"Tom Cruise says his 2-year-old daughter Suri is a complete "girlie girl."

-Ahh, like father, like daughter.


According to the article: "A&E has lured Steven Seagal away from his acting and singing careers to star in a reality show..."

How hard is it to lure someone away from making straight to DVD movies and crappy albums? Quick ask Jessica Simpson.

"SNL" alum Horatio Sanz drops 100 pounds.

Lookin' good, Horatio, and likely feeling a lot healthier too! But now he'll need to wear a little padding if he stops by SNL to do Bill Richardson cameos. Or, Richardson (whom I find intriguingly handsome and charming already) could just lose some weight as well, to match Sanz.


Exes Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora spending Thanksgiving together.

Well, they didn't divorce their daughter Ava, who's now 11 and deserves to have both parents behaving civilly around her. I hope the presence of Heather's boyfriend Jack Wagner and a few other friends at Thanksgiving dinner doesn't strain the situation too much. Maybe having others around will keep everyone on their best behavior. Oh wait, that didn't always work in my family when I was growing up.


Jason Lee married Australian girlfriend in July.

Ceren Alkac? Is that a Xenu name? Did Scientology honcho David Miscavige not let you announce your marriage till now? Weird bunch.


Rep says Prince was misquoted ("grossly misquoted," according to the rep) on same-sex marriage and abortion.

Yeah, right, it's always the media's fault for reporting when celebs behave bizarrely, or run their mouths before engaging brain sufficiently. Celebs who don't permit reporters to record their comments in the interest of accuracy are just playing a game. Get over yourself, Prince.

And how messed up do you have to be to miss the belt loops on your jeans, Mz Winehouse?

Posted by: Osteph | November 25, 2008 9:26 AM | Report abuse

Guy's "unreasonable" behavior is probably simply the fact that he's sick of being married to a workaholic, egomaniac, two-timing religious fanatic control freak who looks like an overcooked turkey drumstick...and probably he's sick of the threesomes as well.

So Paris Hilton turned up for the opening of the Pussycat Dolls lounge in shin guards and wrist braces, but no kneepads or chest protection. Clearly she's not catching (or wasn't that night); does this mean she's a switch-hitter?

We are all sad about Madge's personal life. I'm still not taking her off my Arguments for Celibacy list, but I am sad.

At least Steven Seagal is an American, and not one o them furriners.

Better Headline, "Paris Hilton Markets Self as Shrink-wrapped Skank"

Respectfully submit Laila Ali as canditate for Wonder Woman. The caveat would be that she cannot actually kick any other actor's @$$ during the filming...

Perfect Item Placement: Steven Seagal gets own reality series, predictably leading ALL OTHER ACTORS EVERYWHERE to think about striking.

ALMOST FORGOT!

Liz, this was in Carrie Johnson's "Pardons" article in today's WaPo and should probably be recapped under Crime Watch.
"No one who received clemency yesterday approached that level of national renown. But because of Bush's actions, Grammy Award-winning rap artist John E. Forte of North Brunswick, N.J., will be released after serving about half of a 14-year sentence for aiding and abetting possession with intent to distribute cocaine. Forte, whose clemency bid was supported by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), has been scheduled for release Dec. 22. He had performed with the Fugees and is a friend of and former backup singer for Carly Simon, who lobbied senior lawmakers, including Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.), for his early release. "

Steven Segal reality show. Zzzzz.... I'm holding out for the Jean Claude Van Damme reality show.

I'm not sure the Jehovah's Witnesses would agree with Prince's interpretation of the Bible. But considering how many gays it must take to keep Prince looking so fabulous, no wonder he's backpeddling on his earlier interview.

Well, as much as I try to serve my guests what the celebrities are having for Thanksgiving, I just can't conjure up an estranged husband and/or current boyfriend.

No? Good.

I PREDICT -

Madonna and A-Rod get back together after a nasty dustup over whose abs are tighter

Amy Winehouse is released from hospital

Suri Cruise, in that cute lisp, calls daddy a girlie man

The Pitt-Jolies are thought to be pregnant again but it turns out to be a peanut butter sandwich

The cast of "Lost" still is

Michael Jackson's kids announce their conversion to orphanhood

George Clooney's marraige is announced but is then revealed to be just one of his wacky practical jokes

As ever,

How many ODs do you have to have before the court steps in? I thought the UK was turning into a nanny state. Guess they are more concerned about allowing Sharia law in divorce proceedings than protecting someone from DYING.

Yeah, Brit, your dad is such a meanie. If you think clubbing is essential to life, the judge was right to make the conservatorship permanent. See Amy Winehouse if you really have any doubts. Stop by for a chat with her while you arein Europe. Do it today, there might not be another chance.

So Jason Lee married THIS baby mamma but not the last one? Maybe Carmen (his first wife)& Beth (his second fiancee) wouldn't tow the $cientology line.

Guess this one is young & dumb enough to buy it all hook, line & E-meter.

And that baby must have a doozy of a name if they haven't announced it yet. Who knows, maybe the kid's name really does happen to be DOOZY!!

Except in Celebutardland it'd be spelled Diouxsie, like Siouxsie of Siouxsie & the Banshees (yes I'm old).

Anyone remember when Lee was cool & hip? Yeah, once again, dating myself.
