It sounds like Kate & her brother will make a lovely couple once her divorce from Jon becomes final.


Olivia Wilde might be pretty, but can she give us Megan Fox-quality quotes?


"Sarah Palin rushes to Carrie Prejean's defense..." Sarah's well qualified: she can see gays from her house.


That Ashley Olsen picture makes me want to go put Pat Benatar's first album on the turntable.


"Photographer laughs off Carrie Prejean's claim that wind bared her assets..." Aren't they technically Trump's assets, anyway?

Can't wait for the "Lost" crap to be over.

Proof that Alaska is not the real world?, isn't Ms. Palin a little behind this story?

"Kate Gosselin says her marriage may be over" -- Kate, ENOUGH! It's bad enough that hours of footage of your children's lives are for sale on DVD. I really don't need a bonus Special Features disc of your constant verbal diarrhea.

"Wanda Sykes and wife welcome twins" -- The photo of Wanda looks like D.L. Hughley. And "twins" reminds me of her bit on how one of her "shoes" is better than the other. "Oh, you like this one? Wait until I show you THIS one...."

"Barbra Streisand's ex penning tell-all" -- Am I the only one who thought this meant Elliott Gould? Wow, Jon Peters has a lot to say. And Lesley Ann Warren's name just got a whole lot more Google hits. Yikes.

"Brangelina brood running wild?" -- Finally the Cheetos are catching up with them.

"Drew Barrymore and Steven Spielberg contemplating "E.T." sequel?" -- Gee, I don't know. Dee Wallace and Henry Thomas might have trouble clearing their schedules. Still, a sequel might beeee goooood.

Sarah Palin comments on Carrie Prejean?

Great, let's ask possibly the only person in the world stupider than Carrie Prejean what they think of Carrie Prejean.

It's like asking a Sharks fan what they thought of the Caps flaming out of the playoffs after a stellar regular season.

Congrats to Wanda and her family!

More proof that I don't understand men - I don't see it with Olivia Wilde. She looks like one of those empty beauties. But then, I think Emma Thompson is the hottest thing going, so there it is.


Jay-Z, I can totally relate to the need for luxury car and good quality PB&J! No need to apologize for those demands. (Not so much on the smokes, though.)

And good God, aren't we done with this Carrie Prejean thing yet?

So in order to get his tell-all book published, Jon Peters has to write about someone else's life. His must be too boring.

It's a sexy pose from the waist up, Ashley, but the pleated mom pants ruin the effect.

My shame for the day: I went to TLC's website and watched 2 clips of Jon and Kate for season 5. Let's just say that had I seen those prior to all this affair business I would have said "duh". He is so unhappy and just...blah. Actually, I'd believe the brother when he says they've already talked about divorce. What does it say about reality TV when Ozzy and Sharon are the reigning still married couple.

Jon Peters is a putz.

Kate Gosselin's brother says, "Kate wants to be a talk show host" -- DING DING DING. We should've seen this coming....

Today at 4 on "Kate: Taming FROM the Shrew" I am going to tell yet another useless man everything I find wrong with him as a husband and a father, whether or not it is valid and/or makes me look like a harpie. My guest is Brad Pitt. Later in the program we've have a live castration of my soon-to-be-ex husband Jon. If he bothers to show up. Which he won't. Because he's stupid and lazy. . . .

She can see Miss Russia from her front porch.

This gem appeared on The Fix's blog this AM re Palin's weighing in on the Prejean kerfuffle. Ding-ding-ding-ding! Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!!! I only wish I'd thought of it first. I say we invite newbeeboy to Lizard Island, given his gift of snark.

td you are smokin today, kinda like Eva Longoria Parker last weekend.

I also immediately thought Elliot Gould, but obviously he has more class, which isn't saying much.

Olivia Wilde sorta has the early Angelina Jolie high cheekbone thing going on, although she looks like she could use a big mac or two.

The Kate Gosselin quotes I read, the Heincer they get.

Posted by: reddragon1 | May 14, 2009 11:17 AM | Report abuse

Nice thought, Nosy. But as we have learned, Kate doesn't like to share the spotlight unless she can completely dominate the conversation -- that gives me an idea! Let's pair her with Joy Behar. I'd love to see those two in a cage match. Get Barbara Walters in a ref shirt and whistle and let the bad hairstyles fly!

Posted by: td_in_baltimore | May 14, 2009 11:18 AM | Report abuse

td, Joy Behar is waaaay too smart for them. She's actually well-educated, well-read and intelligent (even if you don't agree with her views).

Re the Gosselins, I wonder: What's in their children's best interests, and why aren't BOTH parents attending to that ahead of their own selfish interests? I don't think their TV series caused their family problems, though it may have exacerbated or hastened the marriage's demise, or prevented the parents from engaging in the introspection necessary to save it. Like with Octomom, suffer the little children...

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | May 14, 2009 11:30 AM | Report abuse

I shoulda said, "The MORE Kate Gosselin quotes I read, the Heincer they get." However, it makes just as much sense the way I wrote it.

And for some reason I totally missed the John Walsh section the first time around. I say, go ahead and arrest Paris Hilton. She's already got more street cred than some of her competition (Olivia Wilde, Shannon Moakler, Carrie Prejean, Sarah Palin). Plus who is going to believe she was actually at a party where there was NO FOOD?

Which one will play E.T.? Drew or Stephen?

Posted by: reddragon1 | May 14, 2009 11:52 AM | Report abuse

LOL td! Other candidates for Kate's new talk show: Kfed, Tom Cruise, and the turkey baster,sperm doner, or quack fertility specialist for Octomom.

Yes, good quality peanut butter IS important. Don't want any of that commercial grade petri-dish salmonella spread.

Carrie, just who you callin' a bag of wind?

I love Paris' defense on why she couldn't have been the one to egg the cars "there was no food in the house!"

Congrats to Wanda Sykes for the birth of her twins and the use of normal baby names (Olivia and Lucas).

Posted by: hodie | May 14, 2009 11:55 AM | Report abuse

Yeah, I've seen pictures of Paris HIlton. Food is not her top priority in choosing a party.

Jon and Kate -- next on Divorce Court. Custody arrangements on that one will be fun. Will they each take 4 kids?

Posted by: epjd | May 14, 2009 12:32 PM | Report abuse

I have nothing today, so I thought I'd share the quality snark I've overheard lately.

1. A friend of mine refers to shows like "Jon and Kate + 8" as the "Birthing a Nation" genre.

2. There is a horse entered in the Preakness named "Luv Gov." A local news anchor here in NYC noted that the horse will be running in its socks on Saturday. The horse's owner is a New Yorker, is good friends with Spitzer mortal enemy Joe Bruno, and has a second colt named "Ninth Client." The owner's husband has said publicly that he'd like to see Ninth Client go head-to-head with Skipadate.

jezebel,
There are a lot of funny quotes on Celebritolgy, but your Lost crap thing made me laugh so hard I thought I was going to get fired.
Jon and Kate, Carrie Prejean, Sarah Palin, Maxim's hot list, Paris Hilton, and a huge list of other terrible, mind numbingly dumb shows and people are ok to discuss, but Lost is crap. too funny!!
By the way do you see the list of comments every week? Most items 10 to 40 comments, Lost 80 to 120 comments.

The plot thickens re. Kate Winslet and Leo. She was hanging all over him at one of the awards shows (Golden Globes I think?) and went on and on about him but barely even mentioned or acknowledged her husband. And now wears a ring with her wedding rings? Hmmm. Maybe it's just an infatuation. After all, he only dates models.

Brangelina brood running wild. I am shocked. Shocked, I say.

I keep hoping we're at 14:59 with both Sarah and Carrie ...

Posted by: Californian11 | May 14, 2009 12:50 PM | Report abuse

Just when I thought the vapid idiot couldn't be any more hypocritical she tries to make out that she's some kind of a modest virginal victim of the elements. LOL. Her stated ambition prior to all this was to be a Victoria's Secret model. Having worked on several fashion shoots with Mr. Hermespal, let me tell you that working models view toplessness with about as much excitement as a two-toed sloth (which makes the guys on the shoot very happy). It is SO not a big deal.

Liz, I am sure you will do anything for our fellow Lizard in uniform who is also in pain.

Not that anything will make you forget. Maybe LiLow will loan you some of her really good drugs. That might help.

Barkeep, a fancy frozen drink for poor baby Dorkus. (More than one way to numb the pain). Put it on my tab.

Sorry Dorkus, Mr. Hermespal has since moved on to working with other photographers and is not doing much in the way of fashion anymore. This is the last shoot we did--she was great: http://www.sangrealjeans.com/index.html

Does that do anything for the pain?

Dorkus, Much as I [heart] our noble barkeep methinks, be cautious combining alcohol and meds. Doc Hodie can advise how much time to allow alternating doses (maybe a couple hours?). If all else fails, consider a mocktail or milkshake (no, not THAT kind).
