Simon Cowell on the dead woman found outside Paula Abdul's home: "That was the *WORST* suicide I have ever seen. Pathetic."


A William Shatner talk show? Frank Caliendo must have wet his pants when he heard about this.


Anne Hathaway's ex calls prison "intolerable"...


R.I.P., Mitch Mitchell.


"Has the heart of a poet trapped inside an insanely gorgeous body" sounds more like Madonna's wish for herself.


I wish I could be at Mariah Carey's house at Christmas. There's hardly ever any snow where I live.

Whoopsie. Left one unfinished there.

Anne Hathaway's ex calls prison "intolerable" - offers to trade spots with Blake Fielder-Civil, who seems to be find the conditions of his incarceration more comfortable.

Looks like Paris finally found a date that's as bright as herself (although it is skinnier than Paris, so that might cause some trouble down the road).


I was soooo hoping Lilo's "boots" was a metaphor.


I had no idea prison was meant to be a fun experience.


Really, Angelina may retire from acting? And deprive us of more great films like...hang on it'll come to me...

Anyone else thinking that the picture of Angelina Jolie looked kinda like Madonna at first glance?

Wow, Chasmosaur. It really looks like a creepy hybrid of Angelina and Madonna. All women should take note: a middle part looks attractive on no one. Jen, I'm looking at you, too.

At first read I thought poor Nick, the things he has to do for cash. I completely missed the part about her girlfriends.

The fact that the deceased was a huge fan of Paula's should have given her family enough cause to get her help, maybe even have her committed for a bit.

That's interesting that prison is intolerable for Anne's ex. I've read that the place is an absolute delight. Why just look at an episode of Oz. Hang in there dude, it'll get better.

Yea! More intrigue and drama and stories on that timeless romantic love triangle. I can't wait to hear what Jenn and Angleina have to say next!! That they're both sick of pretty boy and hooking up with each other??

Wow, it's not even 10 o'clock and we're off with some high-quality snark. Bravo, early posters.

First Obama-inspired mp3s, now offers to the girls to appear on "Hannah Montana"? If I were Malia and Sasha, I'd bag any cable offers and aim for a good solid TV hour (43 minutes) of jumping on Oprah's couch.

Paris Hilton almost looks sexy. Lamps must really turn her on.

Hey NBC, good move cancelling the Brooke Shiels and Christian Slater shows -- now put them in a new one TOGETHER! Throw in some of his Jack Nicholson impressions, the humor she did in that funnyordie Playground Tales video. I smell Emmy (no ratings, but Emmy).

I just noticed that both the Obama/"Hannah Montana" and Palin/"Desperate Housewives" are from Disney-related shows. Maybe I'm naive, but if you want to put a famous person in a Disney environment, I'd rather see. . . .

* Gary Busey on Main Street at the Magic Kingdown telling Cinderella he's going to pull out her endocrine system.
* Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie having a smackdown on "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" because Zack is Team Jen and Cody is pro-Angelina.
* "Toy Story: 3" welcomes the Jackson Five to Andy's house but Michael refuses to join his siblings -- and secretly, Andy's mom is glad.
* Mickey Mouse telling Oprah she can't come into Epcot because it's after hours and it's not like he needs her money anyway.

Jen doll, if you're over Brangelina, stop talking about it.

Angelina, trying anything to keep herself in the media. Didn't she promise to retire awhile ago and just be a mom or something?

I used to admire Madonna ... now she's just kinda pathetic.

In the picture of Angelina that goes w/the story, where are her shoes? It looks like they've been photo shopped out and she's got plastic Barbie doll feet. Weird.

Knight requests that the earring either be returned or replaced, as he has been "deprived of the use and enjoyment of the earring" since the August 2005 incident.

Uh Suge....we've been deprived of the use and enjoyment of Biggie Smalls and Tupac for longer, do you see any of us suing you?

and earlier in the article:

"It was reasonably foreseeable to defendants that the party would present a dangerous environment with the possibility of weapons (including firearms) being used by or against party guests given the well-known feuds that have at times pitched East Coast rap and hip-hop stars against West Coast rap and hip-hop stars, some of whom would be attending the party with their associates," the suit reads, adding that "certain hip-hop artists who were invited to the party ... were known not to be friendly to Mr. Knight."

To sum (ep now that you are all for reals and stuff you could prolly do this better, but I'll give it my best)...

Suge would like Kanye to give him lots of toys because Kanye let other kids, that didn't like Suge, play in his sandbox during recess and he shoulda known that they didn't like Suge and shoulda not let them play in the sandbox because everything should always be about making sure Suge is happy. Like, besides, when they played somebody blew a spit ball and Suge got hit, making him cry, which totally embarrassed him in front of all the girls watching, and one of his teeth got knocked out and somebody else stole it so that they could get money from the toothfairy and Suge wanted the money from the toothfairy and it's not FAIR (said with stomping foot, crossed arms and pouty lip).

Maybe Suge Knight's mellowing in his old age. It wasn't very long ago that he was arrested - with a knife in his hand, mind you - while beating up his naked girlfriend in the street.

And it wasn't very long after that that said naked girlfriend disappeared.

(http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2008/oct/31/victims-gift-vip/)

Maybe Suge's mellowing. Or maybe he just couldn't figure out a relatively quiet way to make Kanye disappear...

I think Suge might have a contributory negligence problem. It sounds like he knew the party might not be exactly holding hands and singing kumbaya. If you are aware of a dangerous situation and enter it anyway, you are at fault too.

Of course, can you imaging a jury trying to decide who is more annoying -- Suge Knight or Kanye West? Plus, this is over an EARRING. Call me old fashioned but one guy should not be suing another guy over ear jewlery.


I second the, Jen if you are over it, shut up. Even if asked the question, just don't answer. Or say, "that's old news, let's move on."

Even if Angelina retires from acting we will still see here everywhere because without the spotlight, she will wither up further and then blow away. Wait, why is that a bad thing?

Yeah pras40 I noticed that too. If you look closely, you can see that she is wearing a foot colored shoe with open toes. I think it's one of those heel-less heels. I guess it works for walking on the beach, but it looks hella uncomfortable....just google heel less heels and you can see some pics.

Anne Hathaway's ex thinks prison is intolerable. (He's complaining of rats and bad smells - well, he is in Brooklyn, after all.) He really shoulda thoughta the downsides before he started swindling people in the name of the Vatican. I'll bet he's eventually headed for someplace even less pleasant than prison.

Byoolin, just because I don't think that one guy shouldn't be suing another over an earring doesn't mean there are not lots of other grounds to sue Kanye West. And other people less likely to get laughed out of court by the jury than Suge Knight.

Hey, for my first case, can it be a class action suit against Kanye West for existing? He knows he is annoying, yet continues to do exist anyway.

Oh. My. God. Have you seen this?

Kanye West says he's 'voice of this generation'

LONDON – Kanye West is to music what Michael Jordan was to basketball — at least that's what West thinks, in his humble estimation.

"I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation, of this decade, I will be the loudest voice," he said in an interview on Wednesday. "It's me settling into that position of just really accepting that it's one thing to say you want to do it and it's another thing to really end up being like Michael Jordan."

...And you know now when I'm on that stage and I look out and I say, 'What am I going to do with the rest of my life?' Like when does a real life start?' Because I have sacrificed real life to be a celebrity and to give this art to people, which is great. It is great that I was able to do that, I'm not trying to shun that in any way, but it's definitely a Catch-22 and it's bittersweet."

I am speechless.

Okay, folks, it's time to assemble the information for EP's class action suit. She'll need to know how Kayne's existence has caused each of you substantive harm, and how many dineros it will take for reparation.

Either that or we pool our money to hire a guy with a bullhorn to stalk Kayne a la Michael Moore at public events. I think that the guy with the bullhorn should repeat, over and over, "Kayne, STFU!"

And M. commenting on the stupid guy that thinks she is great is a laugh...she's 50 yrs old for god's sake!
