Good for Beyonce.

David Hyde Pierce is gay? Get out!

Paris Hilton being "Celebrity Fragrance of the Year." Smells like "Skanque.'

Sure,Courtney, EVERYONE says their $350K Amex bill is bogus.

The Japanese obviously don't get JLo's primary appeal. But that's OK, their baseball games are polite, too.

How long do I have to stay away from Costa Rica? I love that place, but can't go there while Heincer is there.

Gee Craig, if you didn't make so much money, you wouldn't have to pay so much in taxes. It's a bite for all of us.

More Susan Boyle. What's the number, so I can make the transatlantic call to vote for her already? Sounds like everyone will be relieved when she wins.

Megan Fox, you are just so wrong. I'd try to explain Wonder Woman to you, but you apparently have the attention span of a gnat. Guess that's not unusual any more.

Candy, way to make the Spears and Lohan clans look like the classy celebrity families!

David Hyde Pierce: What does Daphne have to say about this? Although it might explain the longest courtship in sitcom history.

Craig T. Nelson: If you don't make any money, you don't have to pay taxes. It's as simple as that, abandon your career, such as it is.

Oh Mighty Isis, make Megan Fox get over herself.

Wow - Candy Spelling must have REALLY hated her Mother's Day gift.

Try this, Liz Kelly - I think it works a little better: "Jay Leno wraps up 17-year "Tonight Show" run, moves it forward 90 minutes, unwraps it and starts again."

Is it true that Paris Hilton's "Celebrity Fragrance" smells like a hotel-room-clearing combination of booze, sex & money? (You know, kind of like a strip joint, but skankier?)

Hulk Hogan never smoked pot with Brooke. But you'll notice he never denied roofies.

I'm on Courtney Love's side for this one, but only because it's nice to see a credit card company get hosed for a change.

The sentence, "Drunken Janice Dickinson curses, falls down stairs on "Finland's Next Top Model"," reads like it could be a scene from Aki Kaurismaki's next film.

When it comes to telling us what she thinks, I've seen inflatable dolls that could give Megan Fox an run for her money.

Megan Fox - You have officially all of little girls of the 70's who ran around with our gold bullet reflecting braclets, using our golden tiara to knock a bad guy (or big brother) down as a boomerang, and fantasized (and realized) that we can become whomever we wanted to be without a man comming to the rescue just as the women from our homeland island of Paradise. Did I also mention the super strength she possesed. Ms. Fox you don't deserve to play Wonder Woman.

If Katie is preggers, does that mean her contract renegotiation went through? That would mean all those divorce rumors were just the typical posturing of star on a hit series wanting a pay raise. The only unanswered question would be who is the real daddy this time.

Prince Harry hits the Big Apple and finds that even British Royalty can't afford a ticket for a seat behind home plate in Yankee Stadium.

Paris Hilton wins fragrance award? How do I get into this fart contest?

Hasn't anyone told Freddie Prinze, Jr. what happens to 24 characters. you don't suppose that the 24 writers would have his character, not even the 24 writers would be so macabre, would they? God knows that they'd do with the Lindbergh baby.

I wonder if Dave Gahan was pissed when he found out about his bladder tumor.

Craig T. Nelson, I'm so sorry that the government did not help you when you were on food stamps. I look forward to seeing Stewart and Colbert stamp on you.

Wouldn't it be better for Adam Lambert to come out on Ellen DeGeneres' show?

Tom Sizemore gets arrested because of an old drug possession charge, while Dick Cheney shoots someone in the face and gets the victim to apologize. Moral of the story: If you're going to shoot up, do it with birdshot.

Man, the snark is flying wild and free this morning. Bravo to all of you, especially you, reddragon1 for "David Hyde Pierce is gay? Get out!" Still laughing.

(Though byoolin, the roofies and inflatable dolls are scaring me THIS MUCH.)

* * * *
Freddie Prinze Jr. will be on "24"? I've never seen FPJr. show more than a pulse on screen; is he playing a coma patient?

* * * *
And now, the Lizard Room is proud to present an ode to Motherhood, sung by the fabulous Tori Spelling [applause]:

I call my b_tch mom Candy
Because I'm tired of Candy
and Candy's tired of me

Won't understand me
My ever-ranting Candy
And Candy's never handy
When I need sympathy

You wish that there were four of her
So I could ignore more of her
She has taken my complete heart
Got a sweet diss for my sweetheart

It's gonna be just dandy
The day I'm done with Candy
And make it fine, all fine....

I'm no Tori Spelling fan, but wasn't Aaron about 106 years old when he suffered a stroke? How can that possibly be her fault?

Megan, if you got caught up in the golden lasso you'd be forced to admit your only talent is a passing resemblence to a famous actress.

Wonder Woman achieved her fame in part because of proficiency with the Golden Lasso.

I suspect that Megan Fox achieved her fame in part because of proficiency with the Pearl Necklace.

His name is Adam Lambert and almost won on Idol, wears mascara on his eyes.
And then those rumors started about him liking only guys.
Now he's on the screen singing songs with Queen
But his preference is still unknown.
But there'll be no doubt next month when he comes out

Will he buy five copies for his mother?

a high five to rihanna for agreeing to testify. that should put the squeeze on the loser former boyfriend to try and arrange for some sort of a plea bargain, because if he doesn't, he's going to jail. hip hip hooray. her decision, unlike the earlier one of seeing the loser again, sets a good example for people in the same spot. don't be afraid, take the time, testify.

So Aaron stopped getting calls from Tori and lost the will to live....while he was living under the same roof with his wife, Candy.

If Tori was his only reason to go on living, doesn't that say more about Candy than it does about Tori?


Paris says that Doug is "beautiful, he's smart, he's well-educated and he treats me like a princess. We're just very much alike."

Something tells me that that last thing Doug wanted was Paris' endorsement on his intelligence.

But if intelligence is what you want, you have to read the entire Megan Fox interview. She totally gets her stardom.

“Hollywood is the most superficial thing you could possibly be a part of,” she says. “And if I weren’t attractive I wouldn’t be working at all.”

And anyway, Wonder Woman is lame. who would want a golden lasso to get the truth out of someone when you could just go all Jack Bauer on them.

Frieda, just because Rihanna is testifying does not mean she is testifying against Chris Brown. Often what happens is the victim is subpoened but still "loves him" or they are "trying to work things out." So she changes her story. Sometimes taking full blame herself.

The most famous case I am aware of was the Warren Moon trial about 10 or so years ago. His wife made it all her fault and that he never hit her at all. She claimed she just said he did because she was mad at him.

Until Chris Brown is found guilty, I won't believe he will actually be held accountable. Even then his sentence will be laughably light. Because she could well get up and ask for mercy.

Dear Jay-Z and A-Rod - could at least one of you two get a real name?

Dear Hulk Hogan - me neither!

Dear David Hyde Pierce - congrats and many happy returns!

Dear Tom Sizemore and Michael Lohan - I'm unclear what either of you has ever offered the world that is of value. Run along now.

Dear Costa Rica - I hate to ask this, but could you just keep them? We'd sure appreciate it.

mdreader01, the Rolling Stone rewrite is inspired.

If it weren't for the fact that Nicole Kidman just comes across as so cold, I'd say she and Keith were trying to pop out another kid just as a nertz to Tom and Katie.

Prediction: Heidi is first off "I'm a Celebrity..." (just to break up the pair right away). And either Sanjaya will be next, or he'll be eaten alive later when the natives, er, celebrities, start feeling the effects of delayed hunger. He's too nice to stay long.

ep - Sadly, I agree with you. Especially since the rumors were that she did not want to testify against him at all - so the fact that she is testifying doesn't really make me think it will hold him accountable.

no evidence thus far that they're "trying to work things out". she will testify as a fact witness. having practiced law for over 30 years, i know people can refuse to testify. and she could refuse. she could tell the state/prosecutor to make its case w/o her cooperation. fact that she is testifying suggests strongly to me that she will be a witness for the state. if i'm wrong, i'll send sen. jon kyl money for his re-election campaign fund.
