Gwynnie must stop the madness. I almost feel sorry for her now. And I am no fashion plate. Und das ist nichts los mit Lederhosen!

Working title for Tyson's memoir, "Lend Me Your Ear."

Sheridan leaving should give Longoria Parker more screen time. Unfortunately it will probably go to Hatcher. I'd care if I still watched. Just don't tell me that Brit-brit is her replacement.

RE: Joaquin...'What a 'zole," as my sainted father would say. If that was a schtick, it wasn't funny. And I don't think it was.

RE: Gwynneth's lederhosen...When you say she "rocked" the leather shorts, do you mean it's a good outfit, she wears it well? I think she looks like a toddler who got made an "outfit" from the stuff in the dress up box.

RE: Michael Stipe...Doesn't surprise me at all. He is a diva.

I was in a bar in Chapel Hill, NC once when Michael Stipe was there. He was very quiet and well behaved. He sat in a corner of the bar and watched the band. He was kind and patient with fans. He tipped the bartender. I saw no problems except my friend, who is a big fan, could barely control himself, but was too nervous to speak to him. :)

The most tangible benefit of being unemployed is being able to watch the video portions of Celebritology. How about that Joaquin Phoenix, ladies and gentlemen?


The Lovely Mrs. byoolin took one look at Gwynnie and asked, "Is she going to a Steelers game?" (Maybe GOOP is aimed at yinzers!)


Presumably "Mike Tyson shopping memoir" = "Mike Tyson walks into publisher's office, bites publisher's ear off, threatens to beat publisher to pulp unless Mike's book is published."


Michael Stipe might very well be a diva, but he looks ever so distinguished in that beard.

For the record, MRSA is not the same as the dreaded flesh-eating bacteria, which is a strep bacteria. Nevertheless, MRSA is very serious and difficult to treat. I don't wish it on anyone.

Also speedy recovery for Tamika Foster, (Usher's wife). Good public service reminder that liposuction is no routine procedure and can be very risky in the wrong hands.

And Gwynnie wonders why we scoff at everything she says. How does she expect us to take her seriously when she dresses that way.

Too much octomom talk. Last night I actually dreamt I had triplets.

Hey, just a general question here...It used to be that I would click on one of the stories in the post and a separate window from the site/source would come up. Now when I click on it, it goes to that window which means I have to click on the "back" button to get back to Celebritology. Is it just me or is that a new format or did I click on something by mistake that's making it do that. Me no like. Help?

it still opens a separate window for me, methinks. Maybe something with your settings?

Presumably "Mike Tyson shopping memoir" = "Mike Tyson walks into
I expected the next three words, on the following line, were going to be, "a bar and" (And best wishes, byoo, on your employment situation)


Can anyone explain why "Inglorious Basterds" has an "e" instead of a second "a" in "Basterds"? Just to get past so many people's computer filters, I'm guessing.


Agree with Dr. hodie re MRSA. I wouldn't wish that even on Michael Jackson, or Chris Brown or Michael Stipe.


Happy 200th Birthday to two true celebs, Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin! None of the folks listed on the Morning Mix is likely even to be remembered in two centuries, let alone revered for having changed the world for the better.

methinks, when I clicked on a Morning Mix hyperlink the story still opened in a separate window (like hodie's). Is your computer actually replacing Celebritology with the new story so that you have to click on "Back" to return, or is it opening under a separate tab but still in the same window? Some people's computers offer the latter option.

"Working title for Tyson's memoir, "Lend Me Your Ear." --reddragon1

Like it! I am seeing a book cover photo of Tyson-in-a-toga PhotoShopped to look like a van Gogh. (Maybe not the van Gogh part; wrong person's ear.)

Now Nicolette Sheridan is free to tackle Ibsen as she planned.

I guess Michael Stipe isn't so shiny happy when he eats out. People!

"Doctored" pics? Could you have chosen a different word? I assume you mean fraudulent, but I can't look because I promised myself I wouldn't give TMZ any more web traffic.

A photo of Gwyneth AND Joaquin together? Bonus! Though it gives me a Ted Kaczynski-gets-lucky-with-a-call-girl vibe. Creepy.

Actually, if that were a TRUE PowerPoint (based on my own sad business world experience), the presentation would be 50 slides longer, every single word of the speech would be written on the screen, and Lincoln would be reading it word-for-word as participants also read a printed copy at their seats.

But Lincoln's clicker doesn't work, so one of the Cabinet members is frantically running up to the laptop hitting Page Down, hoping for the correct slide transition animation/sound (cannonball top left/bottom right/BOOM!).

I'm always fascinated with tabloid diagnosis. The flesh eating bacteria is Streptococcus Pyogenes. If he's had it for a few days, he would not be receiving outpatient treatment.

MRSA is caused by Staphylococcus aureus. It's not disfiguring, but it spreads fast.

If I'm not mistaken, MRSA is most frequently acquired in hospital settings. The flesh-eating strep is more common from traumatic injuries.

And then there's Pseudomonas aeruginosa, the bacteria that killed the Brazilian model a few weeks ago.

Nasty stuff. If you think you have an infection, go see a doctor, not "medical experts" from The Sun.

Jezebel, the constant sex references are getting offensive. We read this blog to snark on celebrities, not to hear about sexual positions.

Yeah, because if we see the outfits on the red carpet, we won't stay to watch the show to see who gets what award. Or even to say "Wait a minute, did I really see that? Let me see it again." Not the brightest move. Kinda like when they wanted to have some of the "lesser" awards presented in the audience instead of having the winner come up on stage.

"Routine surgery", indeed. Why'd she get lipo, anyway? She doesn't look overweight. And why on earth would someone go to South America for lipo?

And speaking of plastic surgery run amok, if Michael Jackson dies, think there will be a huge hoopla over excessive plastic surgery and what it can do??

I was distracted from reading several of the stories due to the cornea-singeing photos of the Clown Car Vagina's belly. The mother of all baby bumps is now the mother of all stretch marks.

I recommend that Joe Francis be relocated to the monkey habitat at the San Diego Zoo.

Was the NBC payment to Octopussy based on a price per pup? ABC is laughing, because they taped Salma Hayek breast feeding for free.

Will Britney Spears replace Nicollete Sheridan on Desperate Housewives? Why do I think of terrible tasting chewing gum when I read or hear the name "Nicollette"?

I have a great idea for the Oscars. instead of asking presenters to skip the red carpet, they should be asked to skip ON the red carpet. Imagine the number of entertaining pratfalls.

Doctors attending Jacko are worried that his infection could develop into a flesh-eating disorder. What's the worry? I thought that all of Jacko's flesh had been surgically removed over the years.

We may be missing the most important bit of all, from a Celebritological perspective, and maybe I should save it for this PM. "Academy asks Oscar presenters to skip red carpet." Presumably because they want only the "real" celebrities (e.g., nominees) to bask in the Joan Rivers spotlight. If they enforce this Academy-sanctioning of B-list classification for presenters, how many volunteers will they get to present next year?

Actually, jezebel, epjd speaks for me too.

(It's not your constant "sex references" so much as your penchant for attacking fellow posters. You see, we laugh WITH each other here. Get your own blog if you want to laugh AT us. I promise not to read.)

And since we're sharing what annoys us....

Up until this point I've been offended by the constant references to the mother of eight newborns as Octomom/puppies/etc. And while I was hoping to avoid the topic since she wasn't a celebrity (yet), Liz's item about a possible reality show made it an unavoidable topic. I get that.

While the "pup"/"litter" references still bug me -- I think kids (Suri, et al.) should be off-limits -- I will confess that I laughed out loud at Sas calling the mom-of-many by the name "Octopussy." (He may not be the first to use that name for her, so apologies to whomever came up with it first if it wasn't.)

Oh, and byoolin as a guest Celebritology blogger? Inspired.

However, we can snark on mom all we want. She DELIBERATELY put herself in this position. She CHOSE to have IVF knowing she can't support the six kids she already has. She put herself out in public to get attention. So, she is fair game.

BTW, MSM is now referring to her as Octomom too. We shoulda trademarked it when we had the chance.

Why No One Watches the Oscars

Answer: Endless "speeches" thanking producers, agents, lawyers and a whole bunch 'o people we don't know.

Solution: All winners must say something funny, touching, pithy, or controversial in less than 90 seconds, else they will fall through a trip door.
=================
I only speak for me when I must tell Californian11 that if you were put off by Ms. Suleman's distended belly, you should have watched the episode of Jon & Kate + 8 when she got her tummy tuck. All that belly ends up being rolls and rolls of loose skin that just sit there.

Posted by: sorcerers_cat | February 12, 2009 2:01 PM | Report abuse

mdreader, while I completely sympathize and agree re the unwatchability of the Oscars, the industry is such that NOT thanking your agent, manager, the producers, director and crew can lead to future unemployment. Exceptions are stars so big they can do a Danny DeVito (I think it was him) who just said "It's my priviledge" and walked off the stage.

It's often more heartfelt than you think. For example, I am having a meeting with a big time manager tomorrow who, if he signs me, is in position to entirely change my career--if such comes to pass and I ever win something, thanking him would be a TOTALLY appropriate thing to do for helping to launch me out of obscurity. My attorney would get a nod too. It's the ones who believe in you and promote you that help get you through the gauntlet and, if the stars align, to that podium.

I know they're televised for entertainment purposes, but it is, after all's said and done, an industry event.

I think everyone here knows that there is no disrespect intended towards the babies or other kids of Octomom. Unfortunately our favorite pet names seem to be a bit derogatory to them. My personal favorite, and kudos to whomever came up with "clown-car vagina" (although uterus would be more accurate). But alas, this names the poor babes as clowns, which they certainly are not. Our challenge is to name her appropriately, without disparaging these poor kids. Any new suggestions?

Alas, my submission today was not so deep; I instead reflected on the problem of dog show outfits. Some of the larger breeds tend to slobber, so handles will go out on the floor with a drool rag as part of their show gear. Really. Wearing nice shoes with that would feel like putting a cocktail dress on over a pair of footie pajamas. (And I haven't even mentioned the liver treats...)

Well, at least Queen Liz took your question today. Mine wound up on the virtual cutting-room floor.

Also referring to Joaquim as "J to the Fee to the Nix"

Why couldn't I have thought of that during last week's contest?

But she bested me, that Liz. I should have been aware of the Rick Rubin reference. However, Rick does not dress like a Blues Brother.

That said, I will ice my knuckles and keep my May/December romance comments to myself.
Maybe.

Methinks, my fond wish is that Jesus Luz...err.. loves you.

As to appropriate shoes for the female Westchester dog handlers, I would have thought that Mary Carillo would have said something. She and the other correspondents do a great job on Real Sports.

I cited a few examples, which I suppose made my question too long for the live chat.

Request a photo of Andy next time. He IS cute.

Actually, another of my unpublished posts this afternoon was, in response to Liz' mention that Producer Paul keeps asking her to call him Andy, to inquire whether Paul also asks her to rub his tummy, or at least scratch him behind the ears. That one didn't get onto the chat either (maybe Paul censored it?).

Speaking of Rick Rubin, how come he got the Producer of the Year Grammy instead of T-Bone Burnett, who produced the multiple-award winning Krauss/Plant album?

How about "Old Mother Hubbard" for the mom of 14? That's not a dig on the kids and clearly she hasn't a clue.
