Paris Hilton says men used her for sex & money.

Wow! There's a shocker!

How does Criss Angel keep getting these chicks? He is one creepy dude.

Paris? What else have you promoted yourself as being for? Other than sex? Or money?

I mean, if you wanted men to be interested in you for something else, why not get dressed and do something other than flash money around?

Posted by: Amelia5 | November 3, 2008 8:31 AM | Report abuse

...and Tina Fey tells Sarah Palin that if she's ever casting for someone to play her long-lost twin on 30 Rock, she'll call Rachel Dratch.


Paris Hilton, be grateful that men used you for sex: the second-most popular answer to the Family Feud survey question, "What would you use Paris Hilton for?" was "target practice."


Simon Cowell broke up with his girlfriend, but Paula Abdul really liked her and wanted her to stay.


The injury to Ken Paves is serious: Jessica Simpson's hair is the most talented thing about her.


Apparently Chloe Sevigny's 8-yr boyfriend finally got around to renting "The Brown Bunny."


Jean-Claude Van Damme "recently adopted seven dogs from Bangkok and one of them is in a coma." And what do you call a dog in a coma? It doesn't matter, the &@#$^@#$ won't come when you call him anyway.


Halle Berry, do you *really* think anyone would go to a movie where you were "always naked, sitting on a toilet, running buck-naked"? (By the way, I think I saw Sas, Dorkus, yello, and a half-dozen others running toward the nearest multiplex. What's that all about?)

Oh Heidi Klum, you are so out. Kate Moss looks like Lauren Hutton after a bad Studio 54 bender, and I don't know what an Isla Fisher is (is that anywhere near La Isla Bonita?). Ashton and Demi, I, well. . . .

Ryan Reynolds -- way to go! He was just showing off to make sure he beat Beth Ostrosky to the finish line. Mission accomplished, buddy.

Jay-Z -- I've said it here before, but I don't get his appeal. He's so nondescript; let's put him and Jessica Simpson in a Benetton ad and be done.

Criss Angel, Holly Madison, Isla Fisher, Blake Lively -- WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? Did I miss a post?

And what movie(s) is Halle talking about? I need to update my NetFlix queue.

Can we start a charitable organization to buy Suri a coat?

Paris was used???? I think it goes both ways. How did she get famous in the first place? Is she having regrets now?

Awesome costume, Heidi Klum. Very original.

So why are the Tom and Katie pushing Suri into the spotlight on an almost daily basis? Don't they have their own rooftop park or private grounds for Suri to play away from the paparazzi? Perhaps they're looking for friends. Won't someone go play with Suri?

Hey Dorkus, great costume!

Ya see that is the beauty of Jay -Z he quietly goes about his biz, and I will forever heart him for giving me Big Pimpin' - I somehow don't care that I am singing along with a song that basically tells men to treat women like - well I am sure you can guess, the title is a big self evident - I just feel compelled to sing along inspite of my intellectual horror...

Now that is a good musician...

As for Suri - I simply don't understand, were all of the stores out of tights? Katibot pick up the clue phone, that isn't snuggling, the poor child is huddling for warmth...

I had forgotten all about The Brown Bunny. Gee thanks, byoolin. I'll never watch "Big Love" again now. I second hodie's compliments on the costume, Dorkus (and word on your comment about Paris -- ditto, man).

Paris: "But hanging out with the future King of England wasn't that different for me. I travel all over the world and meet a lot of Royalty. At the end of the day they are all just people and I don't treat them any differently."

Why does she meet a lot of royalty? Do they stay at Hilton Hotels? Do they request autographed copies of the Salomon tape? Are these the people using her? Are they "real" royals or people in Burger King crowns? I'm lost. . . .

Show of hands -- who looked at Britney's new album cover and thought it was the package for Jessica Simpson's latest straight-to-DVD movie?

Posted by: td_in_baltimore | November 3, 2008 9:54 AM | Report abuse

On the whole voting thing, I am always surprised how many folks in our country don't vote given our roots as a colony that rebelled so that it could be self governed. That right has been paid for in blood so to speak, we ought to value it.

But as a woman (or as an african american), it is even more poignant given that we weren't allowed to have our voice heard until significantly later.

Specifically the movie Iron Jawed Angels is about the suffraget movement at the peak conflict, when those who were activists on behalf of women's right to vote were arrested and worse... So to not exercise that right that was so recently won (less than 100 years ago) seems to disrespect these amazing women who sacrificed for us.

If you'd like, check www.snopes.com and search on Iron Jawed Angels for an impartial view.

On the Sienna Miller thing - did she really think the Getty family was going to welcome her with open arms? Or that she'd actually get her hands on Balthazar Getty's trust?

Time to shop for another rich, famous husband Sienna. Anyone taking bets on who next? A post-divorce-payoff Guy Ritchie perhaps?

Paris Hilton says men used her for sex & money.

She'd be even less happy if they only used her for the money, I'd imagine.


Congrats to Ryan Reynolds! You're a better man than I am.


Dorkus ain't so dorkus.


RIP Studs Terkel, America's great listener, at age 96. Doubtless mere coincidence that he died on the 25th anniversary of the death of Chicago's Papa Bear George Halas.


RIP Yma Sumac at age 86, she of the phenomenal vocal range. There were rumors, of course unproven, that she wasn't really descended from an Incan emperor after all, based chiefly on what her name spelled backwards, but some of us chose never to believe it. I liked this line in her AP obit: "When asked a question about legendary French singer Edith Piaf in an AP interview earlier this year, comedian Jon Stewart quipped: 'She's no Yma Sumac.'" So true.


Did anyone else hear/read about Sarah Palin getting punk'd on the phone by those Montreal radio personalities, one of whom pretended to be French President Nicolas Sarkozy? Zut alors! I can't imagine how Palin's handlers even let that call go through (unless they were in on the gag), or didn't catch on to it earlier (unless they enjoyed the prospect of her reeling out enough rope to hang herself). The Post's transcript contains a few errors, though posters caught them:

Adding my 2¢ to the voting topic: While researching family history online, I was moved to the verge of tears when I discovered voter records for my immigrant grandparents and great-grandparents, who registered as soon as they became eligible (including my great-grandmother, who couldn't vote till women's suffrage in 1920). For once-impoverished folks who couldn't vote in their native land, they must have felt rich indeed to have become electorally empowered here. So, please, don't take this opportunity for granted!

Just 'cause it's my birthday and I need to feel smart today:

Chriss Angel: an illusionist/magician, has an A&E show that comes on after Dog the Bounty Hunter

Holly Madison: Former "Girl Next Door" and recent ex-gf of Hef

Isla Fisher: Mrs. Sacha Baron Cohen

Blake Lively: Tall skinny blonde girl from the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movies and now in Gossip Girl (which also has the chick who plays Cindy Lou Hoo in the live action Grinch movie).

I can't see the halloween pictures at work or else I'd have more to say.

Did Paris actually think that men appreciated her for her mind?

Yeah, Sienna, sadly married men tend to move on from their little flings.

Jean Claude Van Damme adopted 7 dogs from Cambodia? What there were no American dogs to adopt?

Please vote tomorrow no matter your political affiliation or position on the issues. Voting is the most direct way we participate in democracy in this country (other than jury duty and who wants to do that?). How do I get to see Iron Jawed Angels?

LTL you are right about the history of voting apathy but I believe this year that is to change with a real history making election to take place and the fact that absentee voting/voting by mail is now a real (and easy) option in a lot of states. I, however, love being in the middle of it, and will stand in line tomorrow and proudly wear my "I voted" sticker. (Yes I am a geek- and proud of it).

Back to celebritology... Yes Brittney does look like Jessica Simpson on her new album cover. Interesting "apron" she's wearing.

To those worrying about Suri's inadequate cold weather clothing, do note she does have her blankie with her. Also notice Katie is wearing her Orange Halloween Mommie and me dress again but Suri is not. So Katie wears homespun, Tom's hand-me-downs, and she wears outfits more than once in public. Could it be that the Cruise's have also been hurt by the economy or is Tom withholding her clothing allowance for being disobediant in some way?

hodie, I read many years ago (possibly when he was still married to Mimi?) that Tom Cruise was already so filthy rich that once when he saw a sweater he really liked in an upscale shop, he bought out the designer's entire line of them, to make sure no one else could have a sweater just like his.

I may be off here, but I actually think that JCVD has the potential to be funny. Jean-Claude is making fun of himself for being a washed up action star by playing a desperate washed up action star in a movie. He even has the #$%^/gall to name the movie after himself I am pretty sure he spends a lot of time living in Thailand now too, but I could be wrong. That is why he adopted dogs out there, because he spends a lot of time out there due to his whole unhealthy martial arts obsession thing. Next on my to do list: Where is Steven Segal now?
