Katherine Heigl throws a baby shower for "Grey's" buddy Ellen Pompeo...and then promptly removes herself for godmother consideration.


Aren't birthday parties typically reserved for the living? Put another mark down on the MJ is still alive tally.

Hope Andy and Opie cuddle up with Queen Liz to help nurse her back to health, so she's feeling better real soon.

Get well, Liz. (no offense, Nancy)

Will Ashton tweet a more recent pic of Demi's butt for comparison purposes? Purely for fact-checking purposes, of course.

Enough bogus award shows. Bring on the Lizzies!

It's soo lovely to hear about that "closeness" between Kristen and Rob.

Sort of like a beard to a chin.

Get well soon Liz.
Thanks for filling in Nancy.

Man, a part of me wants to be Kate's divorce lawyer. Jon is practically handing the case to her. On the other hand, her micromanaging ways would drive me nuts. "Why did you file that motion, I told you to file this one?" "No, I said this." "I told you to take this person's deposition." Etc.

Props to The Heigl for throwing a party and (as reported, at least) not making it all about her. Or maybe she just hasn't seen the caterer's bill yet...

Jon Gosselin, find your rock and crawl back under it, please.

The New York media are reporting that Adam Goldstein's death is being called an "accidental overdose": yeah, that's pretty easy to do when you're cracked out and addicted to Xanax.

Adam Goldstein just disproved the old adage that surviving a plane crash gives you a new lease on life.

I'd hate to think that the entire future of the magazine industry and perhaps Annie Leibowitz's career is hanging on whether Demi and Ashton decide to have a baby.

I heard that over the weekend, both Al Gore and the California Firefighters Association called Jon Gosslin and Katherine Heigl and begged them not to throw any more parties.

After seeing the link about the great reviews for the Whitney Houston CD (I had been underwhelmed by the song, "I Look to You"), I decided to check out the sample clips on Amazon to prove my first impression wrong.

Did these reviewers hear the same album? Or was it like that Patridge Family episode where the blonde girl couldn't sing at all so they put her in hot pants before the USO concert so all the screaming drowned out her voice?

Whitney's voice is not what it was. Far from it. What was once a tremendously powerful soprano voice has turned into an average yet scratchy also. Sad.

The DJAM-MKO comment deserves at least honorable mention when we get to Comment of the Week. (hey, maybe we can convince Nancy that Liz does that every week...)

td, I'm with you on Whitney. What I heard barely sounded like her and one person on the Today show yesterday tried to excuse it on "age", that at 46 she's unable to hit those notes anymore. So that's what they're calling vocal damage caused by crack.

Get well soon, Liz, and I hope Page, Andy and Opie are snuggling with you.

Demi Moore denies having had plastic surgery?!!!!!!!!!? OMG. Just ... OMG. Yeah, we were all born yesterday AND just fell off the turnip truck. The ginormous implant boobs alone!! Hello?! She was very small-breasted in her early career, then these basketballs showed up bolted to her very-rocked, zero-body-fat self in G.I. Jane. Demi. Get a grip. We are not stupid. It's very obvious you have had tons of work done.

And she wants to have a baby? At 46? Hon, you may look 20 but you're a bit long in the tooth for that ...

Demi Moore and plastic surgery:

A double feature of Blame It On Rio and Striptease is more than enough evidence. Not that I would wish that on anyone.

Californian11, I had always thought she was upfront about the boob job, but maybe I was misdirected by Ashton's tweet. If you don't back off, he won't re-tweet the seat, and we won't have Demi's derriere to moon over (!)

reddragon, are you referring to the numerous mentions of turds?

Wow folks, you should see the smoke cloud over Mt. Wilson. From here it practically looks like a mushroom cloud. And we lost two firefighters over the weekend. Such a bummer.

Posted by: sorcerers_cat | August 31, 2009 3:04 PM | Report abuse

cat, I heard on the news re the tragic deaths of the firefighters. Just.So.Sad. (and sure puts a lot of those self-absorbed celebs our there into proper perspective).

Am supposed to be in LA for a couple days next month on business, so hope there aren't any fires then. What do folks out there do to keep from having their breathing adversely affected by all the smoke etc.? Just stay indoors as much as possible?

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | August 31, 2009 3:14 PM | Report abuse

Pretty much, Nosy. Run to the beach or stay indoors with your AC running. Depends entirely on wind, humidity etc how wide-spread the smokey air is--under some conditions a marine layer comes in and just sits on it, holding it down into the LA Basin. Today is very clear (hence the horribly spectacular view of the cloud) with a light breeze by the beach. But if they've got more wind in the east, they're in big trouble. I read this morning that the fire DOUBLED in size overnight.

Those firefighters are all true heroes in my book, from professional firefighters to convicts doing public service. Stay safe, cat.

Nosy, where in LA will you be?

A movie I've been working on is going to show in the DC Environmental Film Festival in March and I'm trying to wrangle the powers that be to send me with it. I may even coordinate a screening at my alma Mater while I'm there...if they let me go, that is.

Cerritos area. It's really only 1½ days, sort of a forced-march situation (not a vacation), with no time to call my own, alas.
