Beyonce's next CD will be titled, "Sasha Jailed!"

Kirsten, no offense. But I saw "Marie Antoinette" and no amount of tap dancing or other histrionics would ever land you a part in my movie.

What's with the celebrity rage? First Bruce Willis now Courtney Love. Next, Ringo Starr's going to go off on someone asking for an autograph! (Oh, wait....)

That wacky Hugh Laurie! Some guys'll do anything to win sympathy from Emmy voters. I recall a very funny "Tracey Takes On" skit where you broke your leg while Princess Margaret was visiting. Maybe it was that skit that caused your current malady. Or maybe, it's because, well, you're 50 years old....

Is that a picture of Beyonce, or the first runner up in the transvestite Beyonce look-a-like contest?


God chose Carrie Prejean? Do God and President Obama using the same vetting process?

Dorkus, that's definitely the first runner-up - no way is that the real deal. And wouldn't *that* get some Indonesian knickers in a knot!

Strange. Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard isn't cute at all. And that's a very unfortunate pic of Ms. Deschanel - that dress makes her boobs look as perky as my grandmother's.

Tacky Dead Celebrity Souvenir Sighting Report: I saw the world's most hideous earrings this morning on my commute in to work. Buttons, probably an inch diameter, with a head-and-shoulders shot of Michael Jackson in the red "Thriller" jacket on a pale blue background, with his signature next to the image. I wasn't close enough to tell if it was zombie Michael or human Michael, though. Worn by a 50-something woman.

Quiet today, post-Emmys hangover perhaps?

Finally! Michael Emmerson gets what he deserves! An Emmy!

Gisele Bundchen looks like ambassador material.

Who does the wowing say more about? Ms Prejean or the Value Voters.

That's lame, Hugh. Apply for Workman's Comp.

I first read, "Lindsay Lohan kicked out of New York," but then I checked and found it was too good to be true.

Allegedly stoned Courtney Love belongs in a room adjoining allegedly drunk David Hasselhoff.

Did something happen to Michael Jackson?

For some reason I though John Travolta was one of the recently departed. Guess he's still with us, then.

I'm so glad Seth McFarlane/Family Guy didn't win. I hate, hate, hate Family Guy and that clip they showed yesterday was disgusting- I closed my eyes through most of it.

"Taylor Swift ready to move on..." Not so fast - let's see what Kanye has to say about that.


If everyone who worked at the UN looked like Gisele Bundchen, there would be a heck of a lot more goodwill toward it.


Ruh-roh. Time for LiLo & SamRo to sign up with GLOW and put on a real show, no?


"Michael Jackson hated Pepsi" Okay, that's it. He's dead to me NOW.


Proofreading Questions: Why is it "Rain [sic] Wilson"? Since it was Ricky Gervais speaking and not something presented to us in writing, we could just write the quote as "Rainn Wilson" and avoid the '[sic]', no?

Hey reddragon1, where've you been? Good to see you.

It's hard for me to snark on Carrie Prejean, even with openings like:

* Maggie Gallagher ... introduced her ... as "our Miss America."
* Prejean said: "I feel as if I'm Miss Universe."

I mean, it's a beauty contest. She has good genes but she didn't exactly split any atoms in the talent competition. But if losing the crown means speaking fees and way more PR than whoever won Miss America, knock yourself out.

td, don't forget those nice family values supplied by the Miss California organization.

Michael Jackson may have hated Pepsi, but he loved coke. Someone had to do it.

td, been takin hula lessons in hawaii. checkin out the "family values" (aka shoes)they display there. Briefly (like 1/2 millisecond) considered bringing a laptop.

Glad Zooey Deschanel is off the market. Makes her sister look like one of the great minds of our time.

I heart Ricky Gervais. Can any lizards out there explain how Jim Parsons didn't win the Emmy?

Really, any kerfluffle between LiLo and SamRo should be filed under "Not News". Another day, another childish blowout for them.

Will you be the new floor show at the Lizard Island Tiki Bar?

While seeing that photo, I had the strangest sense that Klum was actually the "human vehicle" (forgive the term) stealthily conveying the leader of the rebellion in a Total Recall sequel. Must be the absinthe I had with breakfast.

Mary-Louise Parker proved at the Emmys that looking good is the best revenge. Eat your heart out, Crudup!

David Hasselhoff was not drunk; he was hopsitalized for an ear infection.

Posted by: cotton770 | September 21, 2009 2:58 PM | Report abuse

The Hoff wasn't drunk, yet cotton spelled it "hopsitalized." Hmmmmm.

Posted by: byoolin1 | September 21, 2009 5:07 PM | Report abuse

Is 'ear infection' synonymous with 'alcohol poisoning'?
