So, JLo takes off the ring if it doesn't match her outfit? That's got to make Mark Anthony feel special.


I so need a crock-pot...(and also a girlfriend, but that's another story.)


I really want to snark on Verne Troyer, but he looks so adorable, ahh who's a widdle teddy bear?


Bear Grylls welcomes third child, then leaves him all alone in the wild (well except for the camera crew, the producer, the assistants....)


Is Katie Holmes channeling Zuul?

Ah the old "symbol of our love doesn't match my outfit" excuse. I used to tell a similar tale to the ex-jelo.

I wonder how many celebrities that donated cash to the inaugural festivities think it entitles them to hang with Obama. Probably just the dumb ones, which of course means all of them.

JLo: "Divorce is not, and never was, an option." Word to the wise, Marc: when the Lovely Mrs. byoolin says the same thing, what she means is "... but murdering you *is*."


Who knew that Steve Carrell's lifelong dream was to be a grocer?


Of course Jeremy Piven wasn't on that plane - that's what stunt doubles are for.


Yo, Bear: maybe it's time for some Man vs. Diaper. Why don't you stay at home for a while and help out the mother of your cubs?


Yo, Little Bear: Verne Troyer, jeez, man, when you look back on your career and amateur porn with an ugly chick turns out to have been a better gig that what you're doing now...


Better Cindy McCain on "Dancing With the Stars" than Sarah Palin on Air Force Two.


Is Lindsay Lohan getting dangerously thin again? Well, look at what she's eating.


"Stephen King's 'On Writing'"? That's not writing, that's typing.


Courtney Love, "who describes herself as Buddhist": "Every time you buy a Nirvana record, part of that money is not going to Kurt's child, or to me, it's going to a handful of Jew loan officers, Jew private banks, it's going to lawyers who are also bankers..." You know, Lovey, I'm pretty sure that's not one of the Four Nible Truths.

Proof that one should never read the Morning Mix in an insufficiently caffeinated state: I though Liz had written, "Steve Carrell buys Massachussetts General Hospital" (dang, TV and movies sure must pay well these days).


Jenna Fischer says a crock pot heated up her love life.

Better yet: put food in crock pot, have 8-10 hours free for "hanky-panky" (as the "Self" article calls it) before dinner. Dorkus, definitely get your own crock pot. As the Scouts say, "Be prepared."


Sharon Osbourne wins libel damages from UK tabloid.

Article claimed she overworked her poor frail husband. Hmmm, maybe Sharon has a crock pot, too?


Sharon Osbourne wins libel damages from UK tabloid.

Legal Lizards, isn't the burden of proof in Britain's libel laws different from the US's? I'm thinking of that case from a decade or so ago, where whackadoodle Holocaust-denier David Irving sued scholar Deborah Lipstadt, who essentially had to convince the court that the Holocaust did occur on the grand scale. Fortunately, she prevailed.

This might be my version of God making a rock so big that even He couldn't lift it.

I mean, who does that?)

GWYNNIE: That's a big rock.

BRAD: It's for a big bong.

Jeremy Piven wasn't on that plane that crashed in the Hudson yesterday. Well, THANKK GOD for that! We can call off the investigation by the EPA and the fisherman may go back to work.

Photo of Verne Troyer actually made me snort out loud. Dorkus' comment about it "who's a widdle bear!?" made me do it again. Classic.

I'm thinking that's a thetan Mu Mu, not Miu Miu that Katie Holmes is sportin'. A truly scary photo.

Jenna Fischer says the crock pot is "the best invention since the microwave for busy women who want a home-cooked meal."

Not to be picky, but I think the crock pot was around before the microwave. And the only "home-cooked" meal I ever got from a microwave was the one made by my Aunt Stouffer.

Happy Inauguration, all!

For anyone who missed Pookie's chat (an hour earlier than usual today), she volunteered that two of the young stars of a new series titled "Sonny with a Chance" were imparting words of wisdom to the Writers Who Cover Television. Herewith:

[T]he boy-hunk...just reduced about 100 TV critics and bloggers to tears explaining how being "the hot guy is way too much fun" because he used to have to wear a retainer "for a while and was totally not hot. And, he says [if] Scarlett Johansson (sp?) wants to stop by, he'd love to do a scene or two with her...

Oh great, someone just asked the star how she stays grounded. Her response: "My support system includes my best friends which now includes my cast and I go to church every Sunday. My faith is strong and my parents are incredible. I can talk to them about anything. No matter what. If I were to say 'I quit' today. I don't want to sing. I don't want to act any more. My mom would say "okay, let's go back to school." Hahahahaha...oh wait. She was serious...And Tina Fey is her idol and she wants to do the "Disneyfied version" of "30 Rock."...

From http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/discussion/2009/01/09/DI2009010902897.html

IMDB identifies the two deep-thinking leads in this show as Demi Lovato and Sterling Knight. How old are we getting when the star of a show is evidently named after Demi Moore? It was bad enough when parents named their sons O.J. in apparent hope they too would be become football stars, and now they have to live with the smame of the way he's led his post-sports life.

Nosy, not taking my laptop. If I get desparate for a Celebritology fix, I might check in on mr hodie's laptop if I can wrestle hodie, jr away from it. If I'm not back 1/26, send out the St Benard's to come find me. I think I need to get some Mariah Carey red furry boots so I will be sure to stand out.

Sas, last time I went to Steamboat, about 10yrs ago, I actually go to ski with Billy Kidd (and about 30 other people in our group), but it was still a nice experience. I was demo-ing the new curved skis and kept falling b/c I wasn't used to them. How embarrassing.

Ugh, not obligatory picture of ugly Daniel Craig again. I.just.don't.get.it. I may be in the minority but I know I speak for more than just a few. Liz, maybe one week of no Daniel Craig pix? Many readers would thank you.

From our earlier discussion of Flugtag....

Warning, not safe for my pride.

AFAIK, Billy Kidd still hosts the ski-along every afternoon. When Ms. Snatchquatch and I were last there, we went on a night sleigh ride at a ranch outside of town. The sleigh held more than a dozen people and was pulled by team of two Percherons. Ms. Snatchquatch and I were the only ones wearing multiple layers. Everyone else wished they had, because the air temp was about -5 F.

Steamboat beats the hell out of Vail for ambience, and equals Vail for skiing.

In Sas' case, an extra layer for his cryptud fur!

I'll be on the Mall Sunday waiting to watch the live train wreck that will be the Concert at the Lincoln Memorial.

I'm rooting for a Bono/Garth Brooks duet of "This Land is Your Land." The Edge can play banjo, if he can still feel his fingers.

mdreader01, for those who prefer to stay warm, the concert's being telecast on HBO and also broadcast NPR, for us purist audiophiles.

"Idol" Wannabe Was Involved in Brit's Meltdown
Posted Jan 16th 2009 3:45PM by TMZ Staff

The tatted-up, @ss-flashing contestant on this year's "American Idol" once worked with Britney Spears -- and the job left Brit Brit marked for life.

Turns out Emily Wynne-Hughes was working at the tattoo shop Britney Spears wandered into back in February 2007 (aka The Night Britney Shaved Her F&*%ing Head!!!). And get this -- Emily was actually interviewed by "Extra" moments after Britney got inked up -- nearly two years ago!

She told the show Britney's "mind was in a different place" and her "thoughts were definitely somewhere else."

Apparently, Emily is a good singer and an amateur psychologist, too!
