Having a hard time deciding what is creepier: 'Accidentally' hitting on your daughter or trying to pick people up at your long-time girlfriend's funeral.

Have to go with the incest thing. Giving your 11-year-old coke runs a close second. Ick nast.

Yello, an understandable drugged-out horndog mistake, which he instantly tried to rectify. Still, Ryan gets today's Woodie award.

Guess it shows how old I am when I have to Google Image to distinguish between the diverse talents of Hillary Swank and Hillary Duff. Luckily, I can still pick out Hillary Clinton without that particular crutch.

The IRS should look behind the Declaration of Independence for the secret map to Nick Cage's $2M.

Mark Wahlberg marries Rhea Durham - call me when it's Rhea Perlman.


"Jessica Biel breaks into musical theater" - acting doesn't provide enough thrills, so she's turned to burglary?


Ryan O'Neal just might be the creepiest f*#& ever.


Nicolas Cage owes the IRS $6M, but for some reason they keep bothering John Travolta.


Tony Romo: wandering eye, or what-was-I-thinking eye?


Naomi's photographer now owns three kinds of cameras: SLR, DSLR, and D-shoved-up-his-ass.

I know this is a no-politicks zone, but if this isn't celebrity gossip I'll eat that broccoli over there:

"AlaskaReport has learned today that Todd Palin and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin are to divorce. Multiple sources in Wasilla and Anchorage (including a former Palin staffer) have confirmed the split."

Your friend,

-Plus he owes me $30 for Hollow Man, The Knowing, and Ghost Rider.


Ryan, the funeral of the woman who you said you were going to marry only hours before she died is not a place to pick up women. Stop watching Wedding Crashers.


Tony Romo has a wandering eye? that could explain the interceptions last season.

Mudge, I heard on MSNBC that the Palins have denied the divorce rumors. Can we start the countdown please?

Posted by: DorkusMaximus1 | August 3, 2009 9:20 AM | Report abuse

Mudge, goodness knows I'm not any defender of the Palins, but reportedly on her Facebook page Sarah is denying the divorce rumors. Now if the couple should renew their vows or get his 'n' hers tats (or wasn't there some other sign we've noted?) any time soon, then I might start believing the gossip.

On a serious note, I recall reading serious news profiles of Sarah Palin last fall indicating that she may well have been a very nice person even as late as when she was in college -- which made me start to wonder what happened in her life after that to cause her to act retributively in later years. My conclusion? Perhaps Todd. Anyone else remember how Anita Bryant eventually revealed that it was her husband who had pushed her into (and to keep up) her virulent anti-homosexual campaign back in the '70s? (Didn't she eventually divorce him?)

Then there was Lurleen Wallace, whose husband George got her to serve as Governor of Alabama when he was no longer eligible, even when the poor thing had terminal cancer. My point is that maybe Sarah Palin's leaving the Alaska governorship had to do with finally standing up to Todd. Just a theory, though I wonder...

Former Paris Hilton manager shopping tell-all book: does Dollar General have a publishing division?

Ryan O'Neal, are you permanenty cracked out or just skeevy and disgusting?

Nicholas Cage owes the IRS $6.2M how? Was a cut of the Presley estate part of his divorce settlement?

Tony Romo is a quarterback, he gets paid to look over the field and decide who's most open to receive a pass. (No comment on what will be caught.)

Interesting long form article on Anne Heche in yesterday's Ny Times, titled "Anne Heche Is Playing It Normal Now":
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/02/magazine/02heche-t.html?_r=1&hpw

She actually sounds quite normal and down-to-earth, considering how much her parents put her through in early life.

Ryan O'Neil admits he mistakenly hit on daughter Tatum at Farrah Fawcett’s funeral.

As opposed to purposely, should we assume?

(Then there was my aunt's "gentleman friend," who proposed to her at the cemetery right while her husband (who'd just died a couple of days earlier) was being buried. She said "No," and was furious at his insensitivity (is there some sort of adultery etiquette book that I've never heard of?). While the relationship continued another 15 years (including her nursing him through his declining health till his death), she never forgave his crass graveyard proposal, and refused his repeated subsequent proposals. Afterwards, the man's estranged daughter challenged her father's will, which left everything to my aunt; after a protracted legal battle, my aunt prevailed. Though I was no fan of my aunt, goodness knows she "earned" his money if for nothing else than taking care of him during his illnesses in his later years)

End of family dirty-laundry-airing.

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | August 3, 2009 9:44 AM | Report abuse

How long has it been since Ryan saw Tatum? Must have been ages if he failed to recognize her before hitting on her.

Byoolin -- I am going with "what was I thinking" eye.

Get the Skype interviews in before they shut down.

Yes, this is a politics free zone. Let's leave Sarah Palin out of at least ONE column folks.

I second the nomination for Ryan O'Neal to get the Woody award. Ick. Nast, indeed.

Producer Paul, I would ask Ashton if there is possibly anything we don't already know about Ashton Kutcher.

Ick. Nast again! Didn't need to see the Russell Brand pick. Looks like he could be Bruno past due on a body waxing.

Here's a historical Palin note.

I was reading an old magazine in the doctor's office and it was all about politics in 2008 - and it listed all these achievements of women (I think Marie Claire or maybe Glamor magazine?)?

Well - it went on and on and on and on about: Angelina Jolie!!! Political achievement?? How wonderful she is, etc. It was so glowing - even more than of Hilary Clinton's achievements AND it had a small paragraph on Sarah Palin as being a controversial figure.

Come on - however you feel about Angelina, the article seemed to be written by her press agent. Exactly what political achievements does she have (the magazine had some fluffy words like "amazing and endless achievements." But I can't think of any).

And even if you don't like Palin, her canidency was historical - especially for mom's - few moms are as politically successful.

Ok - so I won't get my political news from fashion magazines again, but it was eye-opening as to how much the press really does worship Angelina. What's next? Will she be cited as one of the most influential medical achievers of all time? Literature? Philosophy?

I guess I wasn't the only one who missed the chat last week. This was Liz's sign-off:

Liz Kelly: One more thing! I'll be on vacation next week, so no chat -- but I'll be back Thursday, the 13th to pick up where we left off. And make sure to check the blog next week for guest posts from a cavalcade of guest bloggers, including Producer Paul.

Translation: no chat on the 6th. Yes chat on the 13th. Sometime this week, Paul will devote a whole blog post to ScarJo because Ashton Kutcher and Anne Heche's interview will just be too dull to post.
