"Two guys in a bathroom stall -- it feels like the most important place in the whole world in that moment. I've actually gone into bathroom stalls with friends since I quit, just so I still have a little bit of that bonding." -- Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, who really should meet George Michael, reminisces about his past cocaine habit.

Mary-Kate Olsen pregnant, according to tabloid...oh, false alarm, she just ate a grape.

No mo Ro Live? Yes, Virginia and all the other 49 states plus the District of Columbia, there is a Santa Claus.

Rosie O'Donnell says she's done with variety shows... like that was *her* decision.


Blake, you might have made the introduction, but Amy made the relationship.


Reese is so strict about presents that instead of a horse her daughter is going to get a pony.


Courtney Love's last band was gastric enough, thank you very much.


Barbara Walters says "The View"-sters are one big happy family... (This is the same Barbara Walters who finds Sarah Palin fascinating, right? Thought so.)


Beyonce models leftover props from the old "Star Trek: The Next Generation" tv series.


Proof that Mary-Kate Olsen is pregnant: she was overheard saying, "I'm eating for one now."


I can understand that Diddy would dye his pubes for vanity. Ben Stiller would do it for insecurity. Jack Black would do it just so he could rub himself with lotion.

Rosie, along with no more variety shows how's about no more: blogs, opinions, Exit to Eden, talk shows, talking...


How many Lizards want to be adopted by Reese Witherspoon just so they can have a pony? (By the by, my sister's boyfriend just bought a horse dirt cheap from the Bureau of Land Management.)


Courtney Love doesn't need a band around her stomach, but a band around her mouth would be nice.


Someone needs to tell Beyonce that they are remaking the original Star Trek, not The Next Generation.


I was always disappointed they only made 7 Police Academy movies. Mahoney!!!

Am I the only person who cheered -- LOUDLY -- when I saw the abysmal ratings for Rosie Live!? As much as I miss Carol Burnett, Sonny & Cher, et al, Rosie never could sing, and she's more abrasive than Comet. Good riddance. Go back to your typo-ridden blog.

As for the idea of "Betty for Men" for "down there," these guys obviously think a whole buncha people are going to be seeing them full monty, right? I mean, what's the point -- is it locker room vanity? Because if Ben Stiller, Jack Black, and/or Diddy are going to be doing full-on nude scenes in any upcoming movies, tell me so I can avoid them.

What is Guy Ritchie going to call his NY Pub? "The Cuddly Gristle"? "The Yankee Deserter"? "Lock, Stock, and Two Cigarette Machines"?

New Helen Mirbthing suit ren pix? SWEET! Let's click that link and say, "hellloooo Hellll- -- what the %%^$&? Who's been Photoshopping?"

(Clearly I musta been drooling a little too much at the prospect of those Helen Mirren pix based on the atrocious spelling in that last paragraph.)

Winona! Come back here this minute, not-so-young lady! May I remind you that you are not Sharon Stone. Sweetie, we didn't believe her with the loaner jewels from Harry Winston and we don't believe your hotel story. Return the bling now. I mean it! Do you hear me?

Otherwise, we'll have no other choice but to make you sit in your room watching an endless loop of "Girl Interrupted." Y'know, give you a chance to ponder your current career path relative to Brittany Murphy's and that other girl's -- what was her name again? Oh right, Angelina Jolie. I'm waiting!

Well done, gentlemen!

Brittney and Madonna to appear in the "Who wore it better" section of People next month.

Granted interviewing the President-elect is a great honor, but the icing on top for Barbara must have been putting Rosie back in her place, again.

Posh shares her recipe for celery sticks.

Mary-Kate pregnant? Was she the one who wanted the boobs? Wish granted.

According to the article, most popular color for "down there" is hot pink. I now have a very bad picture in my mind of some of the clients listed. Brain bleach please!

Looks like Brit and Madge aught to team up to form a band called Velvet Revulsion.

Posted by: MStreet1 | December 1, 2008 9:34 AM | Report abuse

Looked like Patti Smith on the right on Britney's shirt. Couldn't quite place the one on the left.

Posted by: gmart68b | December 1, 2008 9:36 AM | Report abuse

Patti Smith and Mr. Titspervert in drag, probably.
And Beyonce reminds me of either a used-car lot or a car wash. I can't decide which.

Posted by: possum_pouch | December 1, 2008 10:15 AM | Report abuse

That looks like Mick Jagger on one side of Brit-Brit's tee, but I can't figure out who the other person is.

hehehe. byoolin and dorkus said "pony." hehehe.


sounds like we need to send some monday love to the Swayze...

Madonna Miami Concert = A-Rod family business in Miami

Madonna Mexico City Concert = A-Rod baseball business in Mexico City

Looks like her next concerts are in Argentina, Chile and Brazil -- what business could A-Rod have in any of those places, I wonder?

(Also, does this mean Madonna will be coincidently popping up in various AL cities this coming summer?)

Posted by: 44west | December 1, 2008 10:39 AM | Report abuse

Ugh. The Yankees play the Braves in Atlanta this summer. Hope this doesn't mean Madonna will show up at Turner Field.

I saw Tom and Katie and Suri in Times Square on Friday. They were showing up for her play. I guess Tom couldn't afford a babysitter, so he came along.

I've got pictures of Katie's sunglasses and the back of Tom's head. Opening bid?

Guy Ritchie's opening a pub in New York? If nothing else that'll help the city's Mets vs. Yankees bar ratio.

Anybody else thinking Beyonce is on her way to becoming the next Michael Jackson (in terms of total weirdness)?

It'll be the "I'm Spying On My Ex-Wife Bar"

I read an article that Beyonce is going the metal route because of her new "personalty" Sasha Fierce. They have medication for that now.

Rosie couldn't be done with variety shows before she tried to foist an attempt of one on us? So glad I didn't bother to watch that abomination.

Looks like Winona took all her medication on the plane so there was none left for her London stay.

Speaking of ponies, anyone see the new Lexus commercial yet? Much better use of a pony for Christmas than that evil cell phone one from awhile back.

Okay, Lars, thanks for sharing. TMI!!!!

Perhaps Reese W. can share some of her objections to gluttony with the Cruises. A fur coat on a toddler?

If Beyonce is going the metal route because of her new alter ego, might I suggest that lithium is the appropriate metal to go to?

Bah to Betty for Men, if they manscape properly there's no need for dyeing anything "down there."

"sounds like we need to send some monday love to the Swayze..."

You are right, dablues. Hey everyone, send it up for The Swayze! Things aren't sounding very good....

Wait a minute, didn't we all agree that the abomination of Spencer and Heidi would be called "Heincer" since "Speidi" just sounds too...cool...for them?

I really didn't need the mental pictures created by the manscaping story.

Posted by: sorcerers_cat | December 1, 2008 1:51 PM | Report abuse

methinks, if Madge accompanies A-Rod to Turner Field next season, consider it an opportunity. Half of the fans yell, "Yankees suck!" and the other half respond, "Madonna!"

About all those lusty thoughts I used to have about Helen Mirren.......what was I thinking?

I suspect that the pictures on Britney's tee shirts are pap shots of the last two men she did.
