Piven crying after the hearing must have been real - he's not that good an actor.


Yesterday, Octomom offered smut gig. Today, Lisa Rinna in Playboy. What's next, Barbara Walters in Hustler?


Rosie O'Donnell says son asked her to stop drinking. ("It makes your milk taste funny.")

$40K a month will buy Russell Simmons' kids a whole lot of peanut butter and Def jam sandwiches.


"Leona Helmsley's dogs lose rights to $12 million fortune." That's ruff. (Save yourself two seconds - I've already groaned at that one for you.)


Way to taunt epjd with that "First Lady Watch" bit, Liz Kelly.


Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady marry: your move, Romo.

With Lisa Rinna's overinflated collegen-lips, it will be difficult to tell whether or not her Playboy photos will be upside down or not.

I grow weary of the Shelley O fashion watch. The woman is much more than her wardrobe, yet we are subjected to these inane reports on what she's wearing every day. Yes. I grow weary.

Debra Messing is either very happy to be posing with Rose or it was a very very good day at the butcher shop.

I'm sure that Jeremy's tears are a symptom of the high levels of mercury in his system and not some truly stupid plot to gain sympathy.

Gwyneth, I think the best way to respond to the critics is to rob the world of the joy that GOOP gives by taking the site down. Trust me it will work.

Please, please, please, please let Rosie's son ask her to stop posting and sharing anything about her life as well.

Jonathan, be a dear and take Lilo with you.

If you can't figure out that including Michelle Obama in Celebritology is just further proof that the Left Wing is determined to make the Obamas the saviors of the world, you never will. You are supposed to be a journalist. That means neutral. But, as long as WAPO continues to think that promoting the Left's Agenda is being neutral, then profits will continue to fall (can you say 77%?). You are driving away readership with this action. It will only continue until you remember you are journalists first and never kiss up to a politician again.

I saw that "Clean Coal" ad last night and thought it was hysterical. Now I know why.

And epjd? Jeez - the First Lady is always treated more as celebrity than politician. That's why there isn't a gallery of Presidents' Inaugural Tuxedos, but a gallery of First Ladies' Inaugural Gowns at American History.

It'll settle. And mostly, Liz is reporting on the fluffy stuff - dogs, fashion - that's well within the realm of Celebritology stuff. And like it or not, the Obamas are part celebrity right now, whatever you think of their politics and policies. Senator McCain was kind enough to point that out last summer and Paris Hilton was kind enough to spoof it.

re Michelle Obama in celeb watch...

perhaps you younguns dont remember 1996 - when there was a concerted effort to marginalize Hillary Clinton by treating her work on healthcare as something first ladies shouldnt be doing - eventually leading to hillaryshair.com, a massively popular site poking fun at the first lady's hairstyles over the years. (dont try looking for it, the domain was so popular it ended up a porn site)

There is always an effort to turn america's first ladies into accessories - but there's a significant portion of the american population that is just fine with the idea that women are better to be seen and not heard (much less treated as peers).

So how about we just consider the post's coverage of Michelle's clothing as a nod to the political right and move on to Octomom ;)

Posted by: quintiliusvarus | February 27, 2009 10:05 AM | Report abuse

Talking about the First Lady's clothes is not pushing a political agenda. It's what we do here. She is in fact a celebrity, by virtue of being the President's wife. She is not the political figure. How is this different from all the times Liz mentioned what was going on with the Bush daughters. Laura Bush just happened to not be very interesting. I think epjd is the one letting politics cloud your judgment.

Posted by: SweetieJ | February 27, 2009 10:08 AM | Report abuse

I smell a BKD approaching.

Since we haven't had a genuinely stylish First Lady since Jackie O, I suppose I can see the "what is she wearing" thing. I just hate seeing smart, sophisticated women reduced to Hot or Not status like this. I like my celebrities dumb and deconstructed, not my First Ladies.

And for the record, Hillary's hair in the 90's was just awful. That horrible horrible headband people.

Count me in, ep. No politics here, and that includes the Obamas. They're not celebrities. What's next, a corner featuring the family's new dog? Shudder.

(Though, ep, re: "as long as WAPO continues to think that promoting the Left's Agenda is being neutral" -- promoting the left's [or right's] agenda as "neutral" is pretty much what WaPo and most media does anyway.)


Back to snarkville: I love this quote from the NYT/GOOP article:

“Why is it called Goop?” a writer for The Globe and Mail in Toronto sniped. “Perhaps ‘Any Old Load of Rubbish’ and ‘Learn From Me, Ungrateful Peasant’ were both taken.” -- byoolin, are you back in Canada writing?

"First lady wears dress designed by Stevie Wonder's wife" -- I am reminded of that great SNL commercial parody from years back: The Canon AE1, a camera so simple, even Stevie Wonder can use it.

"Eddie Murphy to play Richard Pryor?" -- boy, he wants an Oscar bad. Clearly that Dreamgirls loss really got to him.

"Billy Crystal set to return as Oscar host?" -- don't do it, Billy. It was fun, you were funny. Don't look back; it detracts from the now.

ep, I definitely agree with your ire. I just ignore the obama watch part. I'm not forced to read it, I just scroll past.

Funny story, though, that might make you feel better. I went to the new and "improved" American History museum last weekend and after standing in line to get into the packed room of first ladies' dresses, I saw a beautiful beaded red gown in the middle of the room. I was coming from behind, so I couldn't see the name card on it. I guessed out loud to my friend that it was either Nancy Reagan or Hilary Clinton. Walking around it, I saw the card said "Laura Bush." I had totally forgotten about that dress. It was stunning and the picture of her in it was absolutely beautiful.
When walking away, we overheard another visitor saying about the dress "That's got to be Michelle Obama" followed shortly by a "Holy crap! Laura Bush!?!" I almost peed in my pants I was laughing so hard.

In other news, can we just put Lilo and SamRo in the ring against each other. They'd do one of two things, both of which would keep the men in our lives entertained.

jelo, not to take anything away from you, I pointed out the Jackie parallel earlier this week, but I think it was after everyone else had left the chat.
Don't recall anyone complained when we were snarking on Bristol Palin, and she wouldn't be in the news except for politics. Further if all the other gossip blogs are discussing how Michelle's mother dresses her, I don't think Queen Liz can ignore it.

Didn't know Debra Messing was into leather. Will have to pay more attention.

I had to read the Russell Simmons item twice because I thought it said Richard Simmons, and I am pretty sure he doesn't owe child support.

Speaking of Russells, I just don't see Russell Crowe in that remake of "Men in Tights." Cate Blanchett, on the other hand, can play anything.

I also had to do a double-check on the Lisa Rinna pix, to deduce that indeed, her lips are ALSO surgically enhanced. I hadn't noticed them the first two times.

1. Michele Obama is not a politician. She has never run for office and does not hold office right now. To think otherwise, well, we could be looking at the next Senator from the state of Illinois in 2012!
==
2. Today's "First Lady Watch" was 2/3's snark worthy. The first post was about the Press Secretary having to step in on the dog choice. Oh, and four votes? Grandma doesn't get to cast a vote? With four votes there could be a tie. Does Joe Biden get to break the tie if Grandma doesn't?
===
3. The first link is OUTRAGEOUSLY snark-worthy. Let's just read the set-up again, shall we?

"Social secretary Desiree Rogers says Michelle Obama is an example for women, mothers..."

Desiree, she's a great example indeed, up until the point at which you realize that she has a SOCIAL SECRETARY.
===
4. Now the piece about Michelle wearing Mrs. Stevie Wonder's design would have been funnier had it been Stevie Wonder's design. It would have been snark-o-licious had it looked more like Debra Messing's dress. So I would agree that the post about the dress was gratuitous.

"I felt like I had a lot of really useful information that I was privileged enough to get, because I have this amazing, super, fortunate life."

Every time Gwyneth opens her mouth, the hole she's digging just gets deeper. I really have to wonder what her reserved and classy mom thinks of this childish, look-at-me, aren't-I-wonderful behavior.

It's perfectly understandable when women actors decide to leave the business or cut down on their acting obligations while raising kids. But if you're going to do that, do it quietly; go about your life without drawing attention to yourself.

Gwyneth seems to be in this pathetic place where she wants to enjoy being "mummy" but fears missing out on all the goodies that come from a high-profile acting career.

Saddest of all is her delusion that everyone wants to emulate her lifestyle. She's obviously trying to find herself, but she needs to do it in private. If she genuinely practices all of the yoga and meditation she espouses, she would understand this.

So long, epjd, don't let the door hit you on the way out. And you might want to see a doctor about all that frothing at the mouth -- perhaps some tranquilizers to get you through the next four years? I hope someday when you grow up, you'll think back and contrast favourably the behaviour of the "liberals" on this Island who never had all-caps temper tantrums when Laura Bush or Nancy Reagan were covered as celebrities. That's what's called being a mature adult. Get your mommy and daddy to explain it to you. Buh-bye.

Wow. Been a while since I've seen such venom directed at a regular poster. C'mon, ep, I'll buy you a drink. Might be my last one here for a while if today's a sign of things to come. What're you having? My treat.
