Gwynnie feels sorry for us, because we keep getting hit with detrimental energy. Sharon Stone was once quoted saying that GP was raised in "rarefied air". She's right.

Thanks, Patrick Swayze - you just ruined a lot of bets for people in 2009 Celebrity Death Pools.


Won't someone please teach Britney Spears how to smile for a photograph? You can't just stare at her cleavage all day (after 2-3 hours your eyes dry out).


Whatever happened to the old Larry Flynt? When he was mad at you he didn't sue - he just made you his magazine's "A****** Of The Month."


Matthew Broderick wants to sow his wild oats. SJP just wants to eat oats.

TO: All Residents of Lizard Island (and you know who you are)

FROM: Curmudgeon

SUBJECT: New Surgeon General Named By Island Chieftan

In a not unexpected move yesterday, High and Mighty Lizard Island Chieftan Dorkus Maximus named hodie to the post of Lizard Island Surgeon General.

Disappointed rumored candidate Sanjay Gupta was reportedly speechless at the news.

Hodie comes to the post after a remarkably successful career delivering cute babies and taking care of sick people.

Dr hodie will be dispensing prescription-only, Chineese made, Owen Wilson style Rolex (pronounced "Lo rex") watches daily at the Island's Tiki Bar clinic.

Oprah must be stopped! All these people heading to DC for the Inauguration have no idea that she's going to open up a secret black hole underneath the Capitol building that will carry everyone away to her secret compound somewhere in space where she is Emperor. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Ione Skye?! Haven't seen her name in a while. Congratulations and best wishes on the wedding. Just tell me we're not going to see "Razor's Edge 2" anytime soon. Crispin Glover scares me.

Tori Spelling -- I saw an old 90210 episode the other day (bizarre plotline where David shot some blonde in the arm by accident) and Tori had dark hair, dark lipstick, and almost looked good. Then I remembered who it was.

The "secret black hole" under the Capitol is also called the Visitors Center. Oprah has not built a secret compound somewhere in space because she thinks she is Emperor here.

Of all the things on that face to be worried about, Lisa Rinna obsesses about her CHEEKS?

Posted by: jaybbub | January 8, 2009 10:23 AM | Report abuse

Point taken about Oprah, reddragon1. I still think she's up to no good regarding the Inauguration. So I am staying far from DC for the rest of the month hunkered down with my emergency supplies (per ready.gov) just in case the Capital dome takes off like a spaceship and sends the Earth spinning off its axis. (Better safe than sorry.)

As for the hockey players of the world, I'll defer to a more knowledgeable Lizard (who, I'm surprised, hasn't comment yet).

Sarah Jessica Parker keeps getting thinner, Matthew Broderick keeps getting larger. They look more and more like a "10" walking down the street.

Brad Pitt is aging well. Damn him.

But Jessica dates a Dallas Cowboy, not a football player.

Y'all may add "mere" to that sentence, if it makes you feel better.

So *that's* why they're closing all the bridges. You'd think they'd do more than that, and start now -- Just because she's put the weight back on doesn't mean she's too slow to outwit the border guards.

A sample of some of the heckling Mike Fisher's been getting from the cheap seats for dating Carrie Underwood:

1 - Hey, Fisher! What's your girlfriend got in common with your team? They both can't skate and the both SUCK!

2 - Hey, Fisher! What's the matter, did Elisha Cuthbert say 'no'?

3 - Hey, Fisher! You've only got three goals this season but it's nice to see you can score with the farm team!

4 - Hey, Fisher! The coach said to "keep your eye on the "stupid *PUCK*"!

Gwynnie the Poo said:
"I think part of the problem is people get a hit of energy when they are negative about something, and it is a very detrimental way for them to get that hit of energy. They do not understand why they do not have a happy life. That kind of stuff is just noise to me. I just feel sorry for them."

Hey, GOOPgrrl. Just because I might be "negative" (says you) "about something" does not mean that I "do not have a happy life." Don't "feel sorry" for me, feel sorry that you have the depth of a dime and even less awareness about real people, the vast majority of whom were not born into wealth.

Sheesh, what an annoying Pollyanna. Someone needs to steal her Oscar and give it to Cate Blanchett for "Elizabeth" as they shoulda done ten years ago.

Liz Kelly, MSN.com's gossip section yesterday reported that - wait for it - George Clooney and Paris Hilton were spotted together twice in LA and that there was flirtation, even speculation of a hookup.

Surely this pairing must be the final sign of the imminent arrival of the apocalypse.

Props to Lisa Rinna for admitting to her surgery mistakes, that's more than most celebutards do.

Mickey Rourke seems to be getting a lot of grief these days, some deservedly so, but I still love him. Yeah he went all wonky & derailed his career w/bad marriages, drugs, boxing, bad plastic surgery, etc. but he seems to have gotten "Tarantinoed" & seems to be making a decent comeback. Just as long as he stays away from Eddie Murphy/Travolta territory in his movie choices he'll be fine.

There's sooo much I wanna say about Gwennie's GOOP but I just don't have the time or inclination to do so right now.

Someone should tell Lily Allen that the jails, rehabs & graveyards are FULL of people that thought they were "functioning addicts." Apparently she's never watched "Intervention."

Speaking of voyeuristic TV shows, pleeease tell me that someone else here (Liz maybe?)is watching that grand trainwreck called Rock of Love Bus?!?!

Sorry, I'm late guys. I was hit by a burst of detrimental energy.

As far as Swayze's prognosis of 2yrs, seriously doubt it. I would keep your bet byoolin. (Sorry jaybub). I would also put Steven Jobs on your watch list. He too had pancreatic cancer resected several yrs ago (a miracle he is still alive) and now he has shown a dramatic wt loss. He is denying he has serious illness but you know what that means.

Did Britney give up custody of her children to save her career? You aren't suggesting that she did it because it was good for the kids are you?

Taylor Momson (whoever she is) failed to be recognized in her own hometown. Could this be a the definition of a Z-lister?

Interesting analysis of the cover shot of Pitt in that article--but I still think he looks terrible in it. Fine, don't photoshop away all wrinkles etc to perpetuate the pretty-boy look, but to light and photograph him in such a way that makes him look uglier than he is is just as dishonest.

Here's one of my favorite parts of the article, from an expert on alternative religions:

"A Scientology funeral is likely to emphasize the movement of the thetan from attachment to this body to attachment to another body," [he] added. "The hope is that the thetan will come back in better times, with a better body, with a better spiritual nature."

After the funeral, it's likely the organization will ask Travolta, his family and Jett's caretakers to undergo evaluations to banish any ill feelings about the tragedy.

I'm kinda embarrassed that I know this, but I've always liked Barbara Hershey so there you go. msame, as I understand it Naveen & BH have indeed been together a long time; he has reportedly been pretty consistently unfaithful but they stay together. However, the baby with the other woman was conceived "during a short break" in their relationship. (He appears to have gotten busy pretty darn quick during that "break".)

(Echoes of the Ross character on Friends shouting "We were on a BREAK!!!!") ...
