The Robin Gibb story? All kinds of ewwww.

Steve Wozniak on DWTS. What, they couldn't get Bill Gates? Now THAT I'd have paid good money to see!

Shame on Chris Brown.

Did anyone catch Miley Cyrus playfully not wanting to give Allison Krauss her grammy? Annoying.

Val Kilmer weighs in...yeah that sounds about right.

Why do I picture those Aniston/Mayer sleepovers involving footie pajamas?

So, are we back on the Owen Wilson suicide watch?

There was a silly movie - the kind my husband likes - where the couple has "safe sex" in full body condoms...that is what I picture. Maybe they are wearing the footie pjs inside the full body condoms....

Unfortunately this already appeared in the Robin Gibb story, or it would be a nom for comment of the week: "Dwina, a bisexual former druid priestess". And apparently she's the stable one here...

"Jennifer Hudson thanks "family in heaven"
for Grammy win" - she must have been in the bathroom when they explained how the voting actually works.


Was Whitney channeling Eartha Kitt's 'Batwoman' at the grammys, or was she just high?


"Val Kilmer weighs run for New Mexico governorship..." Running would be a good start. If he starts in Las Cruces, by the time he gets to Santa Fe he could drop maybe 30 pounds.


"Mickey Rourke wins BAFTA" - man, those limeys have a different word for everything, don't they?


Patrick Swayze memoir: Imagine the awkward silence at the meeting when the publisher's rep said, "... and Patrick Swayze drops this fall."


Belinda Carlisle on 'DWTS': first she joined the Republicans and now *this*. Makes me almost want to switch to the Bangles.


Jessica Simpson on stage is starting to look more and more like Tony Romo in the red zone.


John Mayer... sleepover... Jennifer Aniston... No wonder we're all tired of this.


"Grey's Anatomy's" Chyler Leigh says she'll name baby "Aniston": Could be worse - the poor kid could be called "Chyler."


"Usher's wife suffering complications from plastic surgery" - in Brazil, which is where a Houston woman went to have her boobs enlarged to 36-KKKs. Look forward to seeing more of Mrs. Usher soon.


Robin Gibb fathers child with housekeeper. That's a killer Robin Williams impression you've got there, Gibb.


Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson back together?
Apparently Wilson needs a reason to try to kill himself.

Speaking of Mickey Rourke, did anyone else notice that during this weekend's Illinois-Purdue basketball game, nearly the entire Illinois team was wearing orange shoes? (I wondered about one player who didn't though, whether he was a conscientious objector or something).

And I was fully expecting M.I.A's water to break right there on stage. Along with my eardrums.

Also at the BAFTA awards ceremony this weekend, Sir Mick Jagger (who skipped the Grammies) commented that "we are hoping that next week Sir Brad and all the Pitt family will be performing The Sound of Music at the Brit awards."

Angelina and Brad have been visiting a Burmese refugee camp.

I wonder if they're just window shopping.

"Jennifer Hudson thanks "family in heaven"... Hey, they're not there yet, if you believe the Bible. Why do these people keep saying that?

Wonder how long it will be before Jessica shaves her head?

Nosy ... did the Illinois players stick one hand in their pants during the timeouts?

Posted by: rashibama | February 9, 2009 11:04 AM | Report abuse

Seriously, John, you are over 18, it is not a "sleepover" anymore. Time to grow up.

PING. That's the sound of Denise Richards' 15 minutes of fame being up. Go away NOW.

Christy, just because you finally married him does not save you from being considered a homewrecker.

I fell asleep and forgot to ask. Did Alison Krauss and Miley Cyrus kiss at the Grammys? Wait, I have one of them confused with someone else.

Posted by: reddragon1 | February 9, 2009 11:22 AM | Report abuse

Paris Hilton looks GREAT. I am not a fan, but she almost looks, well, hot. Kinda like Dina Merrill or Lee Remick in their primes, but better.

Didn't Liz mention Angelina and Burma last week? Will this be a regular feature? What's next, posting the TripTik? Songs from "The King & I"?

(Suggestion: Start with "there are times I do not think that I am sure of what I absolutely know...." Repeat until it sinks in and she and Brad shut up.)

Robin Gibb. Come ON. Who started the joke? Now I have all sorts of bad BeeGees rewrites in my head, e.g.:

* Have you seen my maid, Mr. Jones?
* More than a cleaner
* Too much Lysol
* How can you mend a broken john?

Etc. Talk about "living in a world of fools." Oh well, it's only words.

I picture the Aniston/Mayer sleepovers to be something akin to the Cher/Christian date in the movie "Clueless."

She burns the cookies, he brings over videos, and they watch Tony Curtis flirt with Laurence Olivier in "Sporadicus."

I think our man John is a cakeboy.

"Tony Curtis flirt with Laurence Olivier" - not in this movie, homeboy. Larry was flirting with Tony, the slave. Tony took a hike rather than hook up with Larry.

In real life, Tony has revealed some gay encounters....

Chyler firmly roots herself in the team Aniston camp by offering up her unborn child as namesake. Not to worry, team Jolie continues to overwhelm team Aniston in sheer numbers and goes recruiting for new members from Burma. Still up for grabs in the draft choice are the California Octopuplets.

Why would anyone go to South America for surgery? Is she crazy?? Are her doctors now saying "I told you so"? Did Usher say "YEAH" when he first saw her new shoes?

Robin Gibb, the gawky one, should have been named Peter. A bit long'n the tooth, ain't 'e. (Hodie tries to write in a Cockney accent)

Speaking of Aussie celebs, has anyone heard if they're planning yet to do anything to help the many victims (and their families) of all those wildfires in southeastern Oz? What with temps of 110°F-117°F, high winds and dry lightning (as well as a few arsonists), it's been unprecedentedly awful there.

Christian Bale says "There is nobody that has heard that tape that's been hit harder by it than me." Except maybe that poor lighting guy. A public apology to him would be more appropriate, Christian.

Paris and her hair cut might look good in that picture but the rest of that dress (or lack there of) is a little ridiculous.

sjcpeach, One of the most fun parts of the Grammies is its higher rate of Fashion Victims than, say, the Oscars or Golden Globes.

Instead of watching the Grammies, I spent my time rebuilding an old toliet. I think I made the right choice. There certainly was a lot less $h|t to deal with.

ROFL ... I really just don't even know where to begin. Val Kilmer "weighs" in? LOL.

I agree re. Paris Hilton's hair. Did she get her wonky eye fixed?

Every time I see the name "Hugh Dancy", I think, could there BE a gayer name? And how many kinds of denial is Hugh Dancy in? Let's see, he's marrying a woman who had an affair with a guy while his girlfriend was 7 months pregnant, then cheated on said guy with Hugh Dancy. Yeah, she's gonna be faithful to you.

Brangelina ... Burmese child is the next to be added to the litter. Followed by a 2nd one so the 1st one will have someone that looks like him/her.

John Mayer, TMI, dude. TMI. We know you're not a gentleman, but STFU.

Didn't Usher's mother die from plastic surgery?

$51,000 a month in child support? What does that child eat, solid gold and diamonds?

On the celebrity baby-naming front, Tiger Woods and his wife have named their new baby son Charlie Axel Woods. Yea or nay, Lizards?

Charlie is okay. Axel is not good. It's a car part and an obnoxious singer. Neither one do you want your child to emulate.

I agree with ep on the Tiger Woods baby name. Overall, ok. Who cares what the middle name is? Tiger, I am sure, understands what it is like to grow up with a strange name.

Whitney Houston looked and sounded completely out of it last night.

Paris Hilton keeps missing her flight on the manhattan project, dammitall.

Not crazy about Charlie Axel Woods. Charlie, really? Not Charles? Still, not a favorite name at all. But yay and best wishes to Tiger and his wife and cubs. Kittens. Whatever.

Axel was the name of Eddie Murphy's character in the Beverly Hills Cop movies. Remember Bronson Pinchot as guy with funny accent trying to pronounce Axel? Pinchot managed to leverage that scene into his own tv show.

The car part is spelled "axle," not "Axel." I think Tiger's wife is Swedish, and Axel is a common Scandinavian name.
