"Kendra Wilkinson penning memoir."

I think you mean she's crayoning a memoir. Likely with a 5 year old as her ghost writer to help her spell the really tough words.

I couldn't force myself to watch the Carrie Prejean video. I'd rather watch Carol Channing sing with muppets on YouTube all day.

And Liz? I hope your Gwyneth's-cool-shirt comment was meant as snark. She's wearing a shapeless mass of overpriced gray jersey fabric. When you wear battleship gray, you look like a battleship.

Daniel Radcliffe "grew up around gay people entirely"... and now he's a liberal and an actor. Somewhere, Michael Savage and Ann Coulter are sharing a post-coital breakfast and exulting, "See? See!"


"Russian teen tattoos Britney Spears's face on her chest..." Just as long as it wasn't something stupid...


"Beach writher Heidi (Montag) Pratt to perform at Miss Universe pageant..." That ought to provide some sort of karmic balance to the talent competition.


"Ousted Miss California Carrie Prejean butchers Bing Crosby song at racetrack opening day..." Too bad der Bingle wasn't still around to beat her back into tune...

First thought upon viewing Gwynnie's gray shirt: "Is she pregnant?" Upon closer inspection, no, but bad shirt + bad video = rumor mill.

Paris, that ship has sailed.

If she allows herself to age naturally, Katie Holmes will make a cute little old lady. Avril Lavigne, not so much.

Ann Coulter and "post-coital" can't go together considering she uses an extended proboscis to inject fertilized eggs into rotten logs for procreation.

I told my wife last night that Katie Holmes was performing on "So You Think You Can Dance" and her reply was, "Performing? What can she do?" And I'd forgotten. Sadly, that video link is "currently unavailable." So? How bad was she?

As bad as, say, Carrie Prejean? Wow. It was like watching Eunice on the old Carol Burnett Show. But bad in a bad way, not bad in a good way.

Wee Tom parties with the Beckhams. Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

Katie Holmes' performance on So You Think You Can Dance was embarrassingly awful. It was a vanity project made possible only by her vast resources. She had no talent, no personality and looked terrified throughout. She was lipsyncing badly to her own mediocre backing track. What's worse, this was featured as "the performance of a lifetime" on a show with very capable dancers.
Clearly she has no more awareness of her own talents and limitations than her husband.

I'm guessing it was ordered by the goons at $cientolocult.

Is Angelina shopping for baby number 7?

You gotta be kiddin' me! A Brittney tattoo on a Russian girls chest?? Can't see it. Was it the bald Brittney?

Keep going on the digitally aged photos and you will see fat Olsen twins. They looked sooo much better!

Paris, you are a little late.

Nosy -
She gave a bunch of money to a new foundation "Dizzyfeet" which aims to support more opportunities for children to dance. I support that effort. The co-founders are producers of SYTCD so that's why they agreed.


I imagine she's trying to launch herself as a song and dance girl. It was a classic broadway style number and all I kept thinking throughout was that I'd much rather watch Catherine Zeta Jones do it. Now that's talent.


I wonder if Nicole Kidman's seen the performance yet. Nicole is slightly more talented than Katie but did a much better job choosing an outlet for her own singing and dancing debut. Baz Luhrman is an incredible director and built a fascinating world around her, so that her singing and dancing weren't the focus. Plus, Nicole can act. So there's that.

re: Katie Holmes's "dancing" - is it just me, or did she really just walk around a lot and pose? Not so much with the dancing, from what I could see.

Also, I can't get sound on my computer at work, so that made the whole thing even more hilarious.

Ikhyd and his mom are singing "No one on the corner got a onesie like us..."

But they're drowned out by Carrie Prejean singing

Where the turf meets the surf
down at old Del Mar.
But gay couples

in separate cars.

Don't get down on bended knee
to ask your beau, "Please marry me?"

Northgs stole my line....Really I was just about to write that, really I was.

re SYTYCD:
Maybe I just don't understand dancing, but Katie Holmes isn't dancing in that number. She's walking around the stage in hot pants while everybody else dances. She doesn't even get winded. And either the sound on the video is off or her lip-syncing is terrible.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, I'd kill for those legs.

Posted by: memphis1 | July 24, 2009 11:02 AM | Report abuse

You are all correct, Katie Holmes did not dance in her SYTYCD appearance. The lip syncing did seem to be off as well. Hopefully the producers and choreographer haven't set their foundation back too much with this stunt.

Why did the Russian girl get a Britney Spears tattoo on her chest? You never know when you'll need a spare boob.

Amy Winehouse acquitted of striking fan. Court determines that this is one time that the feces did NOT hit the fan.

Digitally-aged celebrities.

I'd have loved to have seen one of Cher if she hadn't had any cosmetic surgery. The ones of celebrity victims of domestic abuse are sobering, however.

Re: Katie Holmes on SYTYCD

She didn't really dance and it was obvious that she was lip-synching to the song. Plus, it was taped and not done live unlike all the othe performances on the show.

Poor Cat Deely must have felt really awkward consistently having to refer to Katie Holmes' performance as "the most exciting thing that's ever happened on this show" and such. Seriously: not dancing, not singing. Blech.

Each any every one of the dancers on that show has far more talent than Mrs. Wee Tom

Shhhh! The sycophants at $cientolocult are required to tell Katie regularly that she's talented, so if she finds out it's untrue, Wee Tom will wreak Thetan revenge on the universe.

Just when I thought the Miss Universe pageant could not get anymore vapid.

Daniel Radcliffe grew up entirely around gay people? I didn't know his parents were gay.

I think we all have the same thought about Paris. And Katie.

Posted by: epjd | July 24, 2009 12:41 PM | Report abuse

ep, I had the same thought when I saw that Radcliff quote--his mom and dad must be delighted to read that.

Hubby and I really like SYTYCD and I agree poor Deely had to talk about that pathetic walk through as if it were some great performance. Just ugh. Especially as there have been some mind-blowingly good numbers this season (I think four emmy noms, although they didn't pick our favorites).

Coulter as preying (sic) mantis, priceless snark.

Paris as airhead. And in other news, the Olsens need to eat, Lohan is a trainwreck and the Gosselins are overexposed.

I think the cybershoops are blocking celebritology, b/c I couldn't get an update til after 1.

td, I thought the same thing when I read re Wee Tom and Becks. Posh might want to start going out with Leann Rimes. Or Katie.

Can't decide if this is a Jon Daily Double or Trifecta, but I'm betting being "used" by Kate Major is just what he had in mind.

I'm thinking about getting Brit's face tattooed on a part of my anatomy that is not my chest.

The words "Britney Spears" and "cooks up cheese" just don't go together. Except for the cheese part.

Never thought I'd read about Ann Coulter's post-coital behavior in this chat. Maybe I'll check out Dr. Ruth and see what she has to say about Gwynnie.

Airhead Paris is a good name for a rock band.

SYTYCD Emmy noms were from last season (the Duffy/Door dance being my favorite)

The original version of Come On Get Happy by Judy Garland.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2U-rBZREQMw&feature=PlayList&p=B0E78A9A8B47A4DF&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=5

In a teeny tiny defense of Katie, Garland didn't really dance much in the original either but it was still a billion times better than Katie's version. You will also notice that Garland looked very under dressed yet showed zero skin while Katie, well, her performance & her outfit speaks loudly for itself & it screams "HELP I'M BEING HELD HOSTAGE AS A BABY FACTORY FOR A TROLL $CIENTOLOGIST!!"


This version, by Rufus Wainwright, is also a billion times better:
