Madonna's "adoption plea": Dom SWF, youthful 50, ISO young man for companionship & eventual caretaking. Must be willing to relocate.


Movie idea for Woody Harrelson: "Attack of the Zombie Papparazzi".


When asked why Chris Brown night be dating an old flame, Rihanna replied, "beats me."


Brangelina's other kids won't be happy if they adopt from the Philippines - you know how kids hate a tagalog.

Miley, you're mistaken. "The Princess Bride" is all about Ecstasy. "Alice in Wonderland" is about LSD. It's sad how little kids know about drugs these days.

Americans would be wise to take Canada's lead in cutting back on the gravy.

Woody did what any loving dad would do when his daughter was threatened by a Zombie Paparazzo.

Oh, just wait until Miley hears about Puff the Magic Dragon and Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.

Chris Brown dating old flame?

Maybe he wants to beat out the fire.


TomKat sending Suri to Scientology school?

You have to start 'em young if you want to make sure they don't learn to think critically.


Amy Winehouse's husband expecting child with another woman?

I bet HE wasn't expecting that, and if true, then HE's not the one who's pregnant. Sure hope his substance abuse won't cause genetic defects that the fetus can inherit (Dr. hodie?).


A-Rod dating "Real Housewife" Bethenny Frankel.

Is A-Rod still a real baseball player, or just a player now?

I'm not going to defend Madge today. I will defend Harrelson, though. I don't think he was mistaken about the zombie part.

The more Miley talks, the less sense she makes. I think there is a lesson there.

I noticed in that Daily Mail article about the $cientolotot Suri that Katie was going back to LA to "try" for another baby.

It didn't say what or who she was gonna try with, a turkey baster, Tom (ew) or some other alien all together.

Speaking of Tom Cruise, I just re-watched Risky Business this weekend on TVLand & remembered not only how much I dug him back then but what a great movie that was. It hit right around the time VCRs hit & in our teen years we must've watched it a billion times. Even saw it in the theatre with some unsuspecting grown-up.

Just checked IMDB, it was pre-Xenu, you know, before those pesky Thetans invaded his bod.

I can still recite large chunks of that flick, including the great "WTF" speech.

I MISS that Tom Cruise.

Every time I see a photo of SamRo, I think it's Kate Moss' ex. You know, that druggie singer guy? Is it the hat or the colorless dead-looking circles-under-eyes visage?

Right on, Nosy. Or even, learn to think at all. What would be news to me, is if the Cruises DIDN'T send Suri to $cientolocult school.

So it's the Philippines today, huh, Brangelina? A house in Manila will soon follow. Poor India, how did they get the shaft?

Ya missed an item, Liz. ;-) Spike Jonze and Michelle Williams have reportedly moved in together. Glad to see her happy.

Nosy, generally it isn't a problem. Drugs and alcohol can cause abnormal sperm but those aren't usually the ones that are successful in fertilization. It is however, a big problem when the mother uses during pregnancy. Let's hope Amy never decides to or more likely accidentally, procreates. That's your science lesson for the day, boys and girls.

While the Alice in Wonderland stories have lots of trippy references, they are not about LSD. Alice was written in 1865, while LSD was first synthesized in 1938.

It's not sad how kids know about drugs, knowledge is good. What's bad is that ecstasy is illegal. Ecstasy should be legal. Don't laugh. A group of 20,000 very serious policemen, prosecutors attorneys and citizens have formed a group to legalize ALL drugs, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (http://leap.cc ) They see what happened when we legalized alcohol in 1932 as a good example of how drug legalization would work. We can't stop drugs. They're sick of chasing drug users and sending innocent people to prison for decades just because they like to get high. This foolish war on drugs has lasted 37 years and cost us over a TRILLION dollars and we are not an inch closer to stopping drugs. How many millions of Americans are we going to lock up in prison for decades? Legalize ALL drugs now. Mark Montgomery boboberg@nyc.rr.com

So Robyn Gibson has finally had enough of Mel's shenanigans. Between the alcohol issues and the messing around I can't believe she stayed with him this long. Surprised that only one of their six kids is still a minor. After 28 years of marriage "some jewelry and some property" aren't all she's going to get -- how much did he make on Passion of the Christ? 200 million?

Nice jes! Just read somewhere that he's reportedly worth 900 million, they married without a prenup, and california is a 50-50 community property state, so she's going to do quite all right out of the deal. It also said they've been separated for two and a half years.

That Hannah Montana movie made so much money is surely a sign of the apocalypse.

Well, Miley Cyrus is half-right. The book sure does reference SOME kind of drug! Just not ecstasy, and it's not the main point of the book/films. Opium, yes. Mushrooms, sure. We're all mad here.

You can read all about it online.....

Hodie, that cracked me up. Funny thing is that Peter, Paul, and Mary claim a more innocent meaning to the song. Ozzy also claimed that "Sweet Leaf" was only about a brand of tobacco, and not the wacky kind. I'm waiting for Eric Clapton to disavow "Cocaine" next.

I realize this is sad news, but the way the wire has written it, it sounds like the set-up for so many punchline (especially considering that second prize is TWO weeks in Philadelphia, or that on the whole I'd rather be in Philadelphia...).
