"Weeks after death, Michael Jackson albums still topping charts..." I see that the music-buying public has fallen hook, line and singer for the elaborate MJ death hoax.


"Mel Gibson's girlfriend says she's not sure they'll marry..." This is why Mel picked a girlfriend whose English wasn't so good.


"If not for acting, Jennifer Aniston would have been a microsurgeon..." Liz Kelly, where are your editors? The word is "waitress," not "microsurgeon."


Gary Coleman: You and me, Le P'Tit Riv chip stand in Sturgeon Falls, Ontario. You name the time and date. I'll show you from fries.


What's Next in Not News: Justin Timberlake and Connecticut estate are "just friends."

Huh, a small fry selling french fries, gotta love it.


Mel's new girlfriend had a kid with Timothy Dalton as well? Well, it's a little better than dating one of George Lazenby's cast-offs.


Stephen Baldwin's Hannah Montana tat really gives you that creepy uncle vibe.

byoo,
You are ahead of the curve once again.
I was just going to say that since Jennifer Aniston's IQ seems to be south of 90 she would probably have been a waitress at Denny's if she was not an actress.

George Lazenby -- good one Dorkus.

Cameron Douglas is still "devastated" that Dad married a woman only 10 years older than Cameron himself.

I thought Sidney Poitier already had every award possible. "Other recipients of this year's Medal of Freedom - America's highest civilian honour - include entertainer Chita Rivera, science genius Stephen Hawking . . . and Archbishop Desmond Tutu." Now THAT'S a party crowd. I want to see Chita do the bump with Tutu.

Is there a list of 35 Best Celebrity Tattoos? I just don't see the point of tattoos. As my sister says, "if you want to display art on your body, put it on a t-shirt."

"Neighbors complain about noise coming from Guy Ritchie's London pub"

"Guy Ritchie dating 26-year-old actress?"

That would explain the noise. (Well, either that or someone hoisted a pint and said, "Hey Guy, why don't you direct a remake of 'Who's That Girl?'")

Neighbors complain about noise from Guy Ritchie's pub. It's a PUB. Did they think it would be quiet?

Mel Gibson's girlfriend seems to have a modicum of intelligence. She gets that she is just there to produce more spawn, not actually be a companion.

35 worst celeb tattoos - should be required viewing for people thinking about getting a tattoo.

Will we ever return to calling people by their real names? Is it that difficult to say "Alex Rodriguez"?

"[Reese Witherspoon] was spotted with boyfriend Jake Gylllenhaal at an Elton John concert in the city earlier this month, where the singer dedicated his song Tiny Dancer to her."

Again...all these newspaper cutbacks have resulted in such bad editing. We all know it should be "him" and not "her."

Jennifer would have been a microsurgeon if not an actress? Now why didn't she? Did she exceed the height requirement? (rimshot please)

Poor, poor, Hayden. (making pouty face) Seriously, even though I would rather have her problems than mine, those paps are stepping over the line. There ought to be a law!

Agree Tom Arnold wins hands down for worst (and I'm sure most regrettable) tattoo but I think Kimberly Stewart should get some "Ick, Nast " points for "Daddy's girl" just above her ..ahem....

Posted by: hodie | August 13, 2009 10:39 AM | Report abuse

Hayden, I can see why at 19 you would be shocked--shocked!--that a lead actress in a hit TV series would attract media attention. Obviously you need the freedom to destroy your love life on your own.

I love the comment that Reese's shiner was "obviously caused by being hit by a ball" in the movie she's filming.

Kate Hudson, lots of people have wanted to start a family with A-Rod. Good luck with that.

Great documentation of the Kate Moss/Lily Allen joint venture. Just the kind of info we need during vacation season.

kvs09, "A-Rod" is just SO apropos!

Posted by: reddragon1 | August 13, 2009 10:46 AM | Report abuse

OK, made me look (another ten minutes of my life I'll never get back; sigh). Those Celebrity tats are something. So, so . . . educational! Apparently:

* Mike Tyson and Jamie Foxx use the same needle person, who in turn got his/her start painting country-esque wall stencils in Chinese homes
* Eminen's daughter resembles Linda Blair in "The Exorcist"
* Fred Durst's potential bedroom partners must enjoy virtual four-ways with two talented deceased musicians and a living hack
* Sylvester Stallone had only one wife (I thought there were more; wink)
* There's something in this world call a Bam Margera.

But I must differ in the opinion that Stephen Baldwin's HM tattoo is definitively a Hannah Montana tribute -- I just think Miley happened to be nearby once and Stephen went heeeyyyy -- my guess would be that Mr. Baldwin is honoring (Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree) Harvey Milk. Makes MUCH more sense.

yeah, I realize that but I also catch myself wanting to make lame jokes about Kate Hudson needing "A-Rod" to make more babies.

Someone should save Holly before vemon completely takes her over.

Ewwww. Kate "Ho" Hudson and A "Man Ho"-Rod spawning? That would be a serious collision of double-ick-nast.

RIP Les Paul, electric guitar and overdubbing pioneer, age 94.

Agree with Hodie that Kimberly Stewart wins the Ick. Nast. award for the day with that tat.

I actually think Kate and Alex are a decent couple: about the same age, more beautiful than brainy, and divorced parents of young children.

So, Gary Coleman has given up taco wrestling for french fries?

RIP Les Paul, music-technology genius.

Who is Holly Madison?

Oh great, another Kardashian. Just what the world needs.

I feel sorry for Nick Cannon. That ginormous Mariah tattoo's gonna be hell to get removed after the breakup.

And oh, how the mighty have fallen. I used to think Reggie Miller was hotter than chili peppers in July ...

If that happens, he could always change the first letter M to a P.

I see others beat me to the Summer of Death update.

RIP Les Paul.

Holly Madison's dress presents a great idea for a Project Runway challenge -- create an outfit for a premiere consisting primarily of obsolete materials (in Holly's case, typewriter ribbons).

Posted by: td_in_baltimore | August 13, 2009 3:24 PM | Report abuse

ep, I'd divide the Summer of Death in halves: Those who lived very long full lives, like Les Paul, Karl Malden, Eunice Shriver and Bea Arthur, whose deaths weren't entirely unexpected; and those who died well before their time, sometimes coming as a huge shock (MJ especially, but even Farrah because of her age, despite the length of her illness).

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | August 13, 2009 3:24 PM | Report abuse

They still all seem to be croaking at the same time. I mean you expect old people to die throughout the year. There has just been this cluster.

John Quade today too. As someone in the chat said "that guy." He was only 71.

"...those who died well before their time, sometimes coming as a huge shock..."

Natasha Richardson tops that list for me.

I was thinking she used Hef's old 8mm filmstrips.
