Jodie Sweetin's penning a memior, eh?

How rude.

$5 dollars a day? Hey, one can live large on the dollar menu.

Paris say's "I would never do that...", yeah, come'on give her a break. She probably had to go really bad and Doug was just "helping".

Demi planning to support Susan Boyle by whistling back-up through the gap in her front teeth?

Kanye, what an idiot.

""Full House's" Jodie Sweetin details drug abuse in new memoir" -- Well, I hope she explains Pants Off Dance Off because I am still mystified by that one.

"Kate Gosselin gave husband Jon $5-a-day allowance" -- Sadly, The Children's Place doesn't sell sizes larger than 6T so Jon has to buy his own clothes.

"Al Pacino to play Jack Kevorkian in HBO movie" -- Look for the scenes where he alternately chants "Attica" and "You're out of hemlock. This whole HOSPITAL is out of hemlock!" And stay away from the cannoli.

"Demi Moore flying to U.K. to support Susan Boyle at "Britain's Got Talent" finale" -- Am I the only one who is thinking Demi is planning a Susan Boyle biopic? We'll have to examine Demi's eyebrows very closely at the BGT finale.

"Cameron's house from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" for sale." -- If you live in the house and stuff a lump of coal up your _ _ _, in two weeks you'll have a diamond.

Jon and Kate plus a staff of 8 'writers' who arent writers because then they'd have to get SAG credit... of COURSE it's fake. I'll bet even the World's Biggest Loser is scripted - hell, I'd bet the scales were rigged.
A story from my childhood... growing up in the absolute hellhole of Dick Armey country - one day Bobby Ewing died on Dallas. A family friend owned a florist - they got a hundred funeral wreath orders from bereaved people across the country who wanted to pay their respects (and so hundreds of arrangements went out to Southfork to the somewhat bemused amazement of the actual owner). Reality TV just blurs a line that, for many, is already a very confusing distinction.

So sad about Mike Tyson's little girl. What a terrible tragedy for any family.

memphis is about 30 miles east of forrest city, ark., and local tv sent a film crew to cover TI's arrival at prison.

I don't like Mike Tyson & never have but how horrible for any family to lose a child like that.

I don't think there's Metro station in Georgetown or am I wrong?

I'm soooo over the whole Jon & Kate thing. Don't care anymore.

I agree with Jaybbub. Uh, Kayne, books do not give autographs, authors do.

I'm not going to lie- I totally thought the story about Tyson's daughter was a BS cover up to what actually happened until I learned that he was out of town at the time.

Now I believe it.

That's how little I trust anything having to do with Mike Tyson.

The "Georgetown Metro" refers to the major geographical weirdness in the movie "No Way Out."

Sympathies to the Tyson family. Cords on blinds, hoodies, etc. kill lots of children each year.

James Brown settlement -- get a Will folks. One written by an experienced estate planner so your final wishes are clear. At the same time, get an Advanced Healthcare Directive (formerly a living will) so your loved ones don't have to make a difficult decision at an extremely emotional time. Attorney PSA over.

Kanye -- really? You know I don't know why anyone wants your autograph. I would rather read a book.

Great rap Mdreader.

I can't watch the 35 min video at work, so I did the next best thing. I read the comments. Here's two from SP:

"You can’t write a 'tangible dissertation' on a BlackBerry."

"I took a shot everytime she said 'amazing.' I now have to pee and the room is spinning."

Please, no more J-9 or K8+8. Or better yet, a pic of Kate in a blue dress that shows off her butt, which we haven't noticed since she's been running her mouth so much.

How Paris of her to deny her Cannes been kicked off the yacht. Guess that's the big $$ version of being voted off the island.

"Recession hits hip-hoppers in the bling." I knew that when I saw Flava Flav wearing a regular-size watch hanging around his neck.


Jodie Sweetin's drug abuse: you'd do drugs too, if you had to put up with the comic stylings of Dave Coulier every day.


Settlement reached over disbursement of James Brown's estate. Does that mean mama gets a brand new bag?


35 minutes with "Real Housewives of New York's" Kelly Bensimon is just enough time to dig a sufficiently deep shallow grave.


Does anyone else wonder how people surprised to learn the "entire show is fake" manage to make it through life (what with having nothing more than a rudimentary brain stem)?


Kathy Heigl, treasure the days when your salary demands lose movie roles. At the rate you're making friends in Hollywood, pretty soon you'll be lucky to get a job as a fluffer.


"Cameron's house from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" for sale." I hope they've fixed the garage.

You're right, wadejg. The closest one is, I believe, Foggy Bottom.

News flash! There's a photo of Shiloh actually WALKING ON HER OWN in that TomKat US magazine link.

Oh, and she's just as cute as a button.

I thought most stars mainly wore "paste" in public (Madame Wellington-type stuff, for DCers).

Californian11 says my blinged up homies got no taste.
Nosy_Parker is accusing us of wearing paste.

Who gave Demi Moore the idea that Susan Boyle needs her "support"?

My god, this woman got where she is without anyone's help, and she's clearly capable of managing a simple contest finale without Demi's presence.

The ability of these celebrities to overestimate their worth to humanity is breathtaking.

Posted by: kjohnson3 | May 27, 2009 3:55 PM | Report abuse

kj3, Demi is not the only one doing the overestimating. After all, Simon Cowell is paying for her first class tickets to England.
