Are we sure this Morning Mix isn't recycled from some previous time period? Not only are the subjects echos from days gone by, but some of the actual items, e.g., "Phil Spector jury begins deliberations" seem like they are word-for-word. Guess the Nicole/Woody thing is new. Thought she had more sense than to make movies for perverts.

"Nicole Kidman signs on to latest Woody Allen film" -- Botox Over Broadway? Mighty Forehead Tighty?

"Phil Spector jury begins deliberations" -- I hope Ronnie Spector's outside the courtroom singing, "he's a little guilty, whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa."

"John McEnroe victim of art investment scam" -- You can't be serious. You CANNOT be serious!

"Spears to join Michael Jackson on London stage?" -- She can fill in for Janet on that hit she and Michael had. And make the audience wanna scream.

"Jennifer Aniston tops Details list of Hollywood's sexiest women" -- You're kidding, right? Either she has a great agent or no one else remotely hot lives technically within Hollywood zip codes.

I think Jennifer Aniston has a great body. And it's real, unlike most of Hollywood.

So Willie Aames of "Charles in Charge" and "Zapped" fame is broke and is selling all his possessions at a yard sale. I'm shocked that he hasn't been able to live comfortably off the residuals from his Christian superhero character Bibleman. Maybe he can team up with Kirk Cameron.

"Madge confirms she's single again on Twitter..." I'm surprised she uses Twitter - after all, hasn't everyone on the planet already seen her tweet?


Apparently, Details finds "Can't $&#$^%#% let go of the Brad thing" sexy.


Thanks, Gwynnie, for all you've done to bring bell bottoms back to the prominence they so richly deserve.


Holly Madison injures rib... or, as Playboy's Unabashed Dictionary defines it, "she's racked, with pain."


Val Kilmer, Governor Palin would like to talk to you.


That Padma Lakshmi burger ad is just about enough to make a bishop kick out a stained-glass window, as they say. Although I *would* have liked a gratuitous shot of her running with the burger.


Aw, geez, Brit's roadie guys. Dint yinz get enough Primanti's 'n'at? Coupla Imp 'n' Arns and yinz'd be aright.


Son-of-a-you-know-what. It *is* possible to form a sentence that includes the words "David Caruso" and "stalker."


John McEnroe scammed. His reaction: "You can't be serious, man! You CANNOT be serious! You gotta be the absolute pits of the world, you know that?"

TD, congrats on ruining my keyboard what that McEnroe comment.

My oh my, Ms. Tina Fey-look-alike is certainly doing what she can to keep herself in the news now, isn't she? I was content to let her go back to Alaska and live and let live, but if she takes another jab at Ashley Judd, I'll take her hunting rifle and shove it where the sun don't shine.

Wow, I didn't recognize Brooke Shields at all in that photo. And what's an Angie Harmon?

Jez, I think you need to direct your plea to Producer Paul instead of Liz. But I have to say I find it funny that Liz didn't mention octomom once in today's post, but you brought her up in the first comment of the day.

buffysummers, Angie Harmon recently had a baby, so I assume it's a little post-pregnancy weight. Even compared to that, I should look so good. After L&O she starred (and I thought was better) in "Women's Murder Club," playing a San Francisco policewoman who teams up with a female Assistant DA, a female medical examiner (coroner) and a female reporter to solve crimes in the City By The Bay (the series didn't last long, however).

byoolin, thank you for translation. A sandwich topped with french fries and cole slaw? Pass the brain bleach!

"I'd like to have my own charity, do work overseas, be in Oscar-nominated films, write movies, produce movies/shows/videos, design clothes, make music, write books," she said. "It's all possible if people would just stop judging me and accusing me and making me out to be this aloof, spoiled, ungrateful and unprofessional person that I am not and could never be."

Really? That's all it takes? Because nobody is judging me and I'm not being dragged through the tabloids and I'm not doing any of the above things you'd like to do.

Why?

Because I can't. That's why. And you can't either. Get. Over. It.

Angie Harmon also did ads for some cosmetics company (Cover Girl)?

However, clearly these ladies did not actually WATCH "Charlie's Angels." Had they done so, Debra would be doing karate, Brooke would be holding a walkie talkie (good placement to have her in the middle since the Princeton grad is "the smart one"), and Angie would be holding the gun. Sheesh.

I say, Sir Byoolin, that sounds like a smashing dish, just smashing. Indeed, even the denizens of Lord Baltimore's fair city would enjoy such a repast! Would you care to dine on the gently steamed flesh of the blue crab, accompanied by a pint of National Bohemian (the gentleman's lager)?

Oh, mdreader, I must disagree. LiLo says "it's all possible". And so it is! It's also possible for California to crack and fall into the sea, for zombies to rise up and devour humanity, and for the Large Hadron Collider to hiccup and make reality as we know it wink out of existence. Possible, but not bloody likely.
(Personally, I'd take the zombie uprising over LiLo becoming a media maven. Nobody cares if you use a chainsaw against a zombie.)

Padma Lakshmi seems to be selling her tuna taco as much as she is selling Carl's Jr. burgers.

Bristol Palin already sold her taco to Levi Johnston...and she wants it back!

"Collapsible billy club," eh? Anyone wanna guess whether Wayna's "collapisble billy club" extends to about 10 inches, takes double C batteries and is coated with silicone? {Spell check note to Liz on "collapsable"]

So someone typed "Jennifer Anniston" on toop of a list of Hollywood sex symbols. Let me check the calendar. Hmmmm.....April 1 isn 't for another 5 days.

Thanks much to Byoolin for the virtual trip to Pittsburgh. it brought back memories of playing cards and sluggin back some 'Arn, or as we called it, "Arn S@#tty. I note in passing that Britney's Roadies were simply engaging in a Pittsburgh tradition extending back to the Steelers first Super Bowl victory. How do you celebrate in Pittsburgh? Easy. Meet downtown and start a f@#$in' brawl.

Those guys at Details are either delirious from exhaust fumes or taking nice bribes from JA's publicist. Nice figure, nice face, just not hot. Pretty does not equal sexy. So ironic to have that incredibly hot pic of ScarJo at the top of the page and then read Anniston is topping a "sexiest women" list.

Here's a real Oh My God moment - Bill Pavelic's allegation that LAPD's grotesque Robbery-Homicidee Unit set him up in the Phil Spector murder trial as well as setting up the expert witnesses. People young and old alike should be horrified by that allegation.

I have known Phil Spector for approximately 25 years and worked for him. He has been rendered unrecognizable by the gossip and slander that has been spewed by prosecutors, witnesses, and the newsmedia. He told me that Lana Clarkson, a woman who had mixed alcohol and vicodin, was behaving bizarrely in his foyer, waving a gun, singing Da Doo Run Run, and then shot herself. She could have shot Phil Spector although this seems to escape most people. Decent human beings would have rushed to her aid. Lana Clarkson, for the record, may have been a prostitute who liked to play with guns - according to her Madam, Baby Doll Gibson, who was silenced by the judge who should be removed from the bench over this trial. She forged letters - presumably to obtain loans. Phil Spector had a car and driving waiting to take her home so it seems highly outrageous to say he didn't want her to leave.

The newsmedia is complicit in the crucifixion of Phil Spector. Fortunately, Marky Ramone has set the record straight about what went on in the studio. Leonard Cohen, on the other hand, has destroyed my life, targeted my children, defrauded me of millions, defrauded the U.S. government, apparently committed criminal tax fraud - that I reported to the IRS, and is a saint because he's a great liar and wears a fedora.

I am waiting for Bruce Cutler and have asked Phil Spector to join me in a lawsuit against the District Attorney of Los Angeles and others. The truth is painful to people who love gossip and the sport of chatting about suicides and/or murders.
