"Paula Abdul admits to 12-year painkiller addiction." I know how it is - drugs are the only way I could get through a season of American Idol, too.


Jon Gosselin's brother doth protest too much.

"Paula Abdul admits to 12-year painkiller addiction" -- and yesterday Eminem was talking about pills. You don't think her new single is a duet with him, do you?!

* * * *
Kiefer Sutherland "was running around wearing a giant feather boa and acting totally crazy. He was dancing feverishly and twirling people around all over the place. He seemed to be quite intoxicated."

Not only that, but "the argument stemmed from a conversation Sutherland was having with actress Brooke Shields" -- what was it about? Her Funny or Die video? How Kiefer wishes he'd gotten the Christopher Atkins role in The Blue Lagoon? Why she thinks Jack Bauer is a misogynist pig?

Why can't I get invited to parties like this?

I thought it was because the last party you attended a party like that, it was *you* who headbutted John Waters. That's what I heard, anyway.

Correction: Mindy Kaling inked a deal with NBC, not ABC; it would have been a big surprise if she had switched networks.

(Shh, byoolin. We were gonna keep that just between us, remember?)

* * * *
"NBC to air two-hour Farrah Fawcett cancer special" -- OK, just stop right there. Two hours?! Charlie's Angels didn't even air on that network.

Besides, what's NBC's fascination with bowels anyway? I'm still scarred from watching Katie Couric's colonoscopy and that was like 10 years ago.

What's next, "Where in the World is Matt Lauer's Ulcer?"

* * * *
"Thriller" video co-star sues Michael Jackson for royalties" -- OK, maybe I'm slow, but who is BUYING the video? And Ola honey, watch the news. MJ ain't exactly a money train right now.

* * * *
"Victoria Principal admits she pulled gun on maid, but says she was threatened" -- well get over you, Annie Oakley. Threatened how? Is she blackmailing you with proof you really weren't in the lab developing that skin care regimen you hawk on QVC? Does she have a Betamax tape of you and Andy Gibb getting busy?

Allowing Denise Richards to screech her way through "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" (when she clearly doesn't even know the words) is one of the things, in addition to steroids and the DH, that's wrong with the game.

I didn't know Marie Osmond's daughter was gay. I must have missed Celebritology that day.

C'mon, Carrie Prejean's 15 minutes were up, like, hours ago.

Russian Authorities brand Madonna a "natural disaster". Again they don't quite get it. There ain't nuthin' natural about that disaster.

Do you think Ola would be interested in a scary Chuckie's sister doll?

Kiefer head-butts designer at Met. I'm sure there was a good explanation like this designer was gonna try and dominate the world with his new line of pleated pants and Kiefer recognized that the monster had to be stopped.

Adderall addiction would explain Lilo's weight loss. Can be quite dangerous. Hope she gets the help she needs.

RIP Captain Chaos.

Does the Donald own Miss Universe, too?

Because you know, Carrie, you don't want to p*ss off the Donald....You'll never have your shot on Celebrity Apprentice if you p*ss off the Donald.

I don't really watch DWTS, but I have flipped by it a couple of times.

Is it just me, or is Lil' Kim really, really weird looking? Every time I see her on there I have to stop and try to figure out what's wrong with her face?

She kind of looks like Michael jackson, IMHO.

Posted by: VTDuffman | May 6, 2009 10:21 AM | Report abuse

Yes, memphis, the Donald owns the Miss Universe pageant as well.

Anyone wanna bet that right now the NOM folks are scouring Miss USA's background like mad for anything dirt on winner Miss North Carolina that could force the Miss USA organization to dump her, thus giving the crown by default to runner-up Carrie?


byoolin and td, I've heard that in fact John Waters is a really nice, kind person.


I saw a bit of the Farrah cancer film on TV a few months ago (was it on "60 Minutes"?), and was surprised at what a good job Alana Stewart had done on it. Remember, everyone mocked Farrah mercilessly before "The Burning Bed" aired, too, and she got the last laugh (not to mention an Emmy).

Gosselin mistress' brother -- please meet Shia LaBioef.

Very interesting that Marie Osmond is in favor of gay marriage now, based on this week's tabs.

Why is Denise Richards even allowed out of the house?

Posted by: epjd | May 6, 2009 10:27 AM | Report abuse

Actually, Nosy, I've met John Waters (he used to come into the bookstore where I worked years ago, just before the original "Hairspray") and he is indeed very nice. I'd never head butt him! (Barry Levinson, on the other hand ... kidding!)

Posted by: td_in_baltimore | May 6, 2009 10:29 AM | Report abuse

If Will.I.am wants to "redefine Homeland Security" perhaps he should talk to Victorial Principal.

I'm sorry, Nosy, I usually trust what you say, but I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around "Alana Stewart," "Farrah Fawcett," "cancer film," and "good job."

I mean, next thing you'll be telling me is that Paula Abdul admits to being an addict.

mdreader, I can only vouch for the clips I saw on TV, not the entire film.

Dunno if pro sports counts as entertainment, but former Washington Bullet (turned successful businessman) Dave Bing just got elected Mayor of Detroit. Best of luck in a tough job.

Why do people only come in out in favor of same-sex marriage if it affects THEM? You don't have to have a daughter/brother/mom who's gay to realize that this is a straight-up civil rights issue. C'mon, people! Crank open your minds and hearts a little!

Us writes that Jason Hummel reveals the "blow by blow" of the relationship between his sister and Jon Gosselin. Later, Jason mentions that the "walls are thin" in the house he shares with his sister. Given all that, doesn't Jason Hummel realize that "Blow' is a figure of speech?

Wrapping your brain around the juxtaposition of Alana Stewart, Farah Fawcett, cancer film and "good job" certainly beats wrapping your brain around the fact that you have stage 4 colon cancer.

Tila Tequila should appear on a commercial for Justin Timberlake's 901 brand Tequila. As she lies semi-naked on a couch while young Adoni lick salt off her for body shots, she should look into the camera and say,

"I'm tequila. Just shoot me."

True. So I'll zero in on my problem:

Associating Alana Stewart with "good job." I remember the "George and Alana Show." It was dreadful.

Ick. Nast.
