Way to bury the lede, Liz Kelly: never mind "Amy Winehouse says her marriage is over," what about "Amy Winehouse briefly aware of the real world."


Benji & Paris, the world awaits your Ross & Rachel impressions.


Karolina Kurkova? The world's sexiest woman? She doesn't even have a bellybutton! (And have the folks at E! even *seen* this morning's Morning Mix picture?)


Soon-To-Be-Ex-Mrs. Hogan says that $40K/mo doesn't even pay for her boyfriend's GI Joe action figures (NOT! dolls).


Playboy? Those "Real Housewives of Atlanta" women seem more like Hustler material, don't they?


David Spade and Nicollette Sheridan making out: That ought to be equally gross for the boys and the girls.


Does "naked of protection" make JCVD sound any less creepy?

Having now finally seen a picture the soon to be former Mr. Winehouse, I can now see why Amy has been 'self medicating' and is not fighting the divorce. I can also see why the mouse might have looked attractive to her.

Thank god for Becks and that Vampire dude, or I'd have to say that the attractive british male had gone extinct (as it is, they are endangered).

Travis is suing, Britney's at a hearing, Michael is settling. Now we know why there's no great music these days -- all the talent is tied up in court.

Well, shape up, Travis and Britney, and at least find some creative inspiration from the experience. This time next year I expect to see on iTunes:

"All the Small Torts"
"(Sue Me) Baby One More Time"

As for you, MJ, just record new lyrics to either "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" or "Smooth Criminal" and I'll be good.

Now get started, you slackers.

Am I the only one just a little intrigued by the fact that Karolina Kurkova has no belly button?


byoolin, I thought the same thing about Paris and Benji.


Liz, thanks for the picture of Salma, it's going to be a good day.

Because the proper nakkid comment had me intrigued....

The rest of that interview with JCVD was hysterical... I was starting to feel a little more nicely inclined to 'the Damme' but holy cow he beats (the mind boggles trying to come up with an alternative) anyone I can think of when it comes to ego and a complete lack of intelligence... Oh yeah, and he hits on his interviewer (it's a phone interview)...

Truly something to behold.

I read the US article and maybe it's the cold medicine I'm taking because Paris actually sounded introspective.

Is it possible Paris Hilton has out-grown her shallow party-girl image?

Dorkus, you weren't the only one intrigued by the AWOL navel.

The NY Daily News sent one of its intrepid newshounds to get the scoop. The result: an exposé entitled
"Karolina Kurkova's bellybutton mystery solved":

"She had an operation when she was an infant," her rep told the Daily News. "It's a fact and just thank God she's healthy."

JCVD is BELGIAN, not French. He is part of the great Belgian conspiracy that stole Budweiser and tried to take over Metro until they discovered what an effing mess it is! At least Chuck Norris and Vin Diesel are American. Watch them instead of JCVD, naked or otherwise.

Thanks Liz,
I was wondering how I was going to avoid the Thanksgiving binge. I think all I have to do is remember the Spade/Sheridan story and my diet worries are over.

I thought Amy Winehouse's husband has been a widower for quite some time now. All that remains is the paperwork, really.

The photo of Salma reminds me of an old SNL skit with Gilda Radner as Annette Funicello with the line, "I'm Annette. And these are my breasts."

Van Damme? More like Van Dumb. I can't believe he's only three years older than I am. But as God is my witness I will never say things like:

"I peeled back the skin of the fruit, cut the pulp and then took that very hard seed. In this film I cut that hard seed, and inside that seed was a kind of liquid cream substance of the man I am."

Dang, most of the low-hanging fruit got plucked early today!

MStreet1: Brilliant snark, but sad. I'm sure we all hope it proves wrong, and that Amy can recover.

Just to be contrarian: It's so easy to pick on David Spade for being vertically-challenged, unshaven, not well coiffed, etc. But really, I wonder if he's actually a very nice, kind, understanding guy.

In other news as yet unreported here, the Vatican forgives John Lennon for his "bigger than Jesus" comment. Does anyone else think the iconoclastic Lennon would never have asked them for forgiveness, and would've felt patronized (to say the least) if he knew it were proffered? Apparently no word yet on this from Paul, Ringo or Yoko.

So, now Dr. Pepper has to pony up free servings of their beverage since Guns 'n' Roses managed to get their new CD out before year's end. Hmmm, if one doesn't like either product, that's not much of a deal.

Let's think about that... Umm. No. (Just kidding.) Turns out Fabio is a year-and-a-half older than JCVD. (And man, I gotta get to the gym....) The idea of a remake of "Twins" with these two has potential, though.

Also in my Google "Fabio" results: YouTube - Fabio gets hit in the face with a goose! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7w4dpxgSWA

I can't view video here; can someone tell me if Fabio hit the goose back?

Somehow, seeing the words "Amy Winehouse" and "marraige" in the same sentence is too weird.

Low-hanaging fruit: No one EVER expects the Spanish Inquisition, byoo'. And, no one ever expects the Pope to say "Whoopsie", but it's about time.

I didn't realize that Ms Hyack's bazooms were so . . . heroic.

Again, does MJ think that by converting to Islam he'll get his share of virgins? Do they have any virgins of the XY chromosome variety in Paradise? (They probably have to grab them while they're young . . . oh wait, never mind.)

Hayak's breasts were always pretty heroic, but nursing her daughter has definitely upped the heroism bar.

(When I read the first reference to "low hanging fruit" I thought the poster was talking about Hayaks breasts.)

Of course MJ settled. There was no way he was gonna get under oath again. the part that gets me is that depsite all the past evidence, the Sheikh said, "I thought we had become close personal friends." MJ has no close personal friends over the age of 12. He just has adults he uses.

td, When it comes to playing Wonder Woman, it's not all in the shoes.

Salma Hayek is too small to play Wonder Woman. While Salma's boobs are bodacious, the rest of her is "petit." She's only 5'2". Wonder Woman should be closer to Amazon size.

While Sara Ramirez may be a bit hefty for your taste, she has the overall size (5'9") as well as the majestic mammalia to physically qualify her for the role. And she cleans up real nice, too:

I got to go with td on the WW thing. A shorter actress could pull it off. They made Bogart look taller than his costars, even Michael J. Fox came off looking tall in a few of his movies.
