Two stunningly obvious pieces of news in the Mix today:

Pam Anderson's kids' teased at school. Your Pam Anderson's kids, being treated with nicely by anyone other than guys who want to see their mother naked in person was not going to happen.

Charlie Sheen and wife headed for a split. He just impregnates them, he doesn't keep them around for the long term.

"Nicole Kidman to Play Transsexual in Upcoming Movie" -- finally, she'll be attractive to her ex-husband once again. Look out Katie!

"Entire Spears clan rushes to Mississippi hospital" -- were they offering a sale on rehab? Group discount, perhaps?

"Angelina Jolie says she and Brad Pitt will "definitely" have more kids" -- together or apart? Did she specify?

"Did Angelina Jolie secretly apologize to Jennifer Aniston?" -- not anymore.

"Kanye West used dressing room floor as toilet at MTV Europe Awards" -- maybe he saw a hole in the middle of the floor and just assumed. I've seen worse bathrooms in England, believe me.

I think I'm done with the Suri news. At least until she's a teenager.

RIP, Grammy-winner Miriam Makeba, who died of a heart attack at age 76 after performing a concert in support of the struggle against organized crime in the Naples region. Would that, like Mama Africa, we could all lend our talents to making the world a more just place to the very end of our lives.

From the last pictures I saw of Val Kilmer, maybe he should focus on running, period.

I ain't seein' the Pam Anderson link, I get a second dose of whatisnames truck.

ep, I just went back and checked the comments from Friday and saw you passed the bar exam - congratulations!

Miriam Makeba will be missed.

Jeez, Beyonce looks deranged in that photo. Girl, put a comb through your hair.

Might I suggest that Charlie not impregnate his next wife. Clearly that's where the relationship starts to fall apart.

Hey ep - Congrats! That whole pesky work thing kept me from checking back in on Friday - you'll soon feel my pain!

Three cheers for Brangelina's to keep having kids until they get one they like.


Val Kilmer for gov? Whatever - just as long as it's not another maverick running for office.


Pam Anderson's kids should be glad they're only being teased at school. In the old days, bullies would make jokes about how another kid's mom had a really huge rack.


That pic of Katherine Heigl & Josh Kelley ought to be enough to reanimate Mr. Blackwell.


LiLo bi, not lesbian. Can I get a "WOOHOO!"?

I am so glad I got my post in first before reading these two. The bar's so high now it's way beyond my reach.

(But c'mon, don't you both want to see a "Fatman" poster painted on a jet? I mean really; if "Me, Al Franken" can run for office. . . .)

She's been brushing it back with the metal thingie in her left hand, no doubt.

Shia LaBeouf's wrecked truck for sale on eBay

"Bidding for the Ford, which comes complete with dents and scratches, will start at $7,000, the celebrity Web site reported. / The vehicle was bought at an insurance auction by a man who did not realize it belonged to the movie star until he found a Warner Brothers badge inside. / Once he realized its history, the new owner decided to make a quick buck."

Ick, ick, ick. Let's hope no one bids on this.

Wondering...

Which is worse? Living in Madonna's apartment building or living in John Tuturro's?

Will the sudden rush to the hospital cancel Britney's plans to go to Europe for Thanksgiving?

And when she's there, will she be inviting Kanye West to join them?

No, she just sticks the metal thingie in an light socket, and voila!

I wonder if Beyonce will market those hair extensions and tumbleweaves to the public?

They are, um, quite, um, large aren't they?

(I'm staying over here because I just can't muster much, er, excitement about Hugh Hefner. Question, though: Does Hef have a real or fake Twitter?)

Rihanna, "clad in a corset, hunches over and holds her stomach while performing..." Well, no wonder she got sick. Either the corset was too tight or she was cold from not having more on.

Katherine Heigl is just channeling "Bullets Over Broadway" when Dianne Wiest puts her hand over John Cusack's mouth and says, "Don't Speak."

Diddy's designer "was given a budget of $7,000 and 12 hours to create an all-white decor, including 1,000 white roses, blow-ups (large pictures) of Diddy and Barack Obama, and $2,000 of white fabric."

First, I'm glad they qualified "(large pictures)" and second, does Diddy not realize we're in a recession? Surely a couple photos enlarged on a copier and some white carnations here and there would've sufficed?

No, that'd be an Iceman running for office.

Val Kilmer considering run for New Mexico governorship...

Does this mean they will have to put a campaign sticker on the back of KITT?

Dorkus, or on the bumper of the Batmobile?

I think that's spelled "mavrick" or so says a few of the RNC folks.

Oh how I miss Doors-era Kilmer....**lesigh**

The Daily Mail is reporting the Spears rush to the hospital was in Louisiana and it was because Brit's son Jayden had a seizure. This quality family decided to drive the child to the hospital themselves rather than wait for qualified paramedics and an ambulance. Pregnant Jamie drove interference against the paparazzi.

"Pregnant Jaime?" Didn't she have the kid? Or is there truth to the rumors that she didn't know you could get pregnant while breastfeading?

Or I got my pregnant teenagers confused. Who is the one who has been pregant for about 2 years now?

I think Ashlee Simpson has been pregnant for two years.

Yeah, probably pregnant with two sets of twins.

Maybe Beyonce's hair extensions are the result of a failed attempt at cloning George Clinton.

Posted by: DorkusMaximus1 | November 10, 2008 5:17 PM | Report abuse

Never thought I'd be defending Britney (LOL!), But, I saw on TV this evening that apparently Jayden James just had hives from an allergic reaction to a food, nothing anything life-threatening. So an ambulance might have been overkill, and then Brit would be catchking flak for taking one out of service that someone else with a life-and-death condition might actually have needed. Some days a celeb just can't win.
