I can't believe I'm saying this, but Evan Rachel Wood is absolutely exquisite in that photo.

Faye, I couldn't agree with you more.

Posted by: petalceleb | January 30, 2009 9:28 AM | Report abuse

jelo, I agree with you, the pic of Evan Rachel Wood is a great way to start the day.


I love the quote at the end of the JS article, "If Tony Romo's happy, everybody else need to be too."

-Which would be great except for yesterday's piece on Tony canoodling with another woman in Jessica's house.


Ashton, you don't own the world, your neighbor can renovate his house without your approval. Go back to misspelling words, you nit-twit.


Ok, check out the link to the Lego movie characters in the Ricky Gervais article, so awesome.


I love that they use quotes when calling Mischa Barton an actress.


With the way the recession is going, I might just apply for the job of Kanye's shoe cleaner. You gotta figure it's steady employment.


Pamela Anderson with a guy from a trailer park? Well it's a step-up from Kid Rock. (Who says Canadians don't have good taste?)

Faye, love the quote, but how's this. Instead of finding a real actress, why doesn't Hollywood come up with a new movie idea instead of a remake?

I hope they didn't take her bongs, crack pipes or syringes... That would be utterly devastating.

Oh Faye, that's not the half of it. In today's Hollywood, they could come up with an actress with a rap sheet.

Kimora and Russell are calling the reason for their divorce "dissolution." Meantime, Kimora is pregnant by actor Djimon Hounsou. Rather than "dis-solution", I think the reason really is "dat problem."

INFDaily is reading way too much into that Misha/Kanye picture. They always look disinterested.

And am I the only one who was hoping that "George Clooney Dating Game Show Host Contestant?" meant that he was actually going to be on one of those dating game shows? I was actually hoping for an episode of "Millionaire Matchmaker" where Patti Stanger gets to the bottom of why he's still single.

I am really sorry I clicked on that picture of Angelica Huston. Not a pretty sight.

Posted by: ssg3 | January 30, 2009 10:24 AM | Report abuse

Shouldn't the bikini pic been of Evan Rachel Wood instead of Angelia Houston? Who does Angelica think she is? Helen Mirren?

Yes, Rachel, Mickey Rourke is too old for you. Ask him if he cares. I'm too old for you, too. Ask me if I care.

Is Kanye West looking for a shoe cleaner or a boot licker? I'm guessing the latter. Dorkus, you may want to hold back on submitting your resume.

Amy Winehouse has a house? Must be a crack house.

Is Mischa Barton on the LiLo diet? She should shift to the Jessica Simpson diet.

Pam Anderson finds love in a trailer park? That's Karma with a capital K. People, you can't make up these things. Maybe Pam can find someone for Jessica Simpson. Jessica would find right into the trailer park scene. Some deranged people are claiming that she's already a doublewide.

I think that someone [ahem] needs to find and post a shot of Jessica Simpson in last night's skin tight outfit. After scalding my eyes with Angelica Houston in a bikini, I think that's the least we can expect.


Finally, let me offer the Hasselbecks an appropriate name for their upcoming child: Damien.

Yeah, I couldn't bring myself to go there. She's a great actress, I just don't want to see her in a bikini.

Evan Rachel says the press and Mr. Rourke disrepected her with the hook-up rumors. What did Micky do? Maybe he did mistake her pants for his pants after all and inadvertently slipped his hand in there when he spotted a photographer.

Thanks to the Celebritology Gods for another day without a mention or photo of Posh Beckhem (or however you spell her name). Shoot, just realized I kinda spoiled it.

Dakota Fanning is turning into a real cutey.

450 pairs of shoes? For a guy? Sounds like a serious fetish thing to me.

Forget the debate over Hillary Duff's acting abilities. Why would anyone think that Bonnie and Clyde needs to be remade. Great, great movie. Every part is perfectly cast and acted. The "remake" will suck. This is just wrong. What's next, a remake of Psycho? (Oh yeah ...)

Her new boyfriend is a diver. Did Pam notice the "Divers do it deeper" sticker on his car, and want to measure him against Tommy Lee?

Pam Anderson and trailer park is a match made in heaven. But futher research (!) shows that the "trailer park" is in Malibu and, like much else in Malibu, is not the same as a trailer park in say, West Virginia. Although frankly, Pam might be at home there, too.

My impression of that photo- Mischa was just in her usual state (drunken stupor) while Kanye was basking in his own glow- wondering who the hell is going to clean all of his shoes.

Not a big fan of that twit Jessica Simpson but I think the flak she is getting for her weight gain (what of about 10-15 lbs?)is ridiculous. She made the bad decision to put on those unflattering jeans and now she is porky pig? She is still an attractive looking woman in my opinion.

And Pam, dating someone she met in a trailer park? I guess this was inevitable, given the dudes she has been with in the past.

As the resident conservative on this blog, let me just say that Hasselbeck really doesn't represent the modern conservative women: we don't sit home popping out babies. I don't care if she has a "job," it obviously does not require much effort.

I don't care how much Jessica Simpson weighs, I just want her away from Romo.

The Pam Anderson item is just too easy. Kinda like her.

A very appropriate suggestion, Sas but I wonder if they will elect to use Elias's machine instead. Wonder what it will come up with.

Jessica looks healthy to me. More than I can say for Mischa. Get that girl a sandwhich. Perhaps it is hypoglycemia that makes her look bored.

I think the "ick" factor far outweighed the age factor for Evan and Mickey. Glad she woke up and smelled the coffee (or was that smell something else?).

Not sure I would call Angelica's appearance in a bikini "rockin" (a little paunch and the girls hang a bit too low) but I admire the attitude. I have certainly seen worse.

Clooney on the dating game???? How do I sign up?? Mr. Hodie who? (just kidding hon!)

ep,

Having a third child doesn't really count as "popping out babies".

However, not being able to figure out that one is pregnant does not bode well for that particular conservative woman and her brain.

Maybe Miss Elizabeth thinks her other two children were found under cabbage leaves in the garden . . . and if one just doesn't look in the cabbage patch one won't have more children then they want.

Easy-peasy conservative-style family planning, eh?

Mudge, I gotta agree. If it were her first kid, I could see wondering about the nausea and stuff. But, your third????? You should be aware of the signs by now.

Nosy, any conservative women with a brain that doesn't get pregnant every year would be a good choice. I would tell it, just to tell that nasty Joy Behar off. She wouldn't even look at McCain when he was on the show. Fine, don't agree with him. But, he is a guest on your show, treat him with courtesy and at least look at him. Of course, that show will never let an intelligent conservative on, it would ruin the show's premise that all conservatives are idiots and/or evil and liberals are wonderful and warm and fuzzy and the only hope of the world.

Okay, getting off politics.

When Elisabeth Hasselbeck announced her first pregnancy, she explained that she hadn't been sure she could have kids owing to some unspecified female problem. So I'm guessing that she doesn't use contraception. Also am guessing that she's gugged that she can't be the next Mrs. Duggar.

Which reminds me, allegedly the new mom of octopuplets (thanks, Possum!) already had six kids, and may have obtained fertility meds from a foreign seller online. Wonder if she figured she could short-cut her way to landing her own TV show about a mega-family?
