Celebritology 2.0: October 25, 2009 - October 31, 2009

Celebrity-inspired Halloween horror

The "Eight is Too Much" wig. (Courtesy BuyCostumes.com) With Halloween right around the corner -- literally -- we again turn to the world of celebrity for a little last-minute inspiration. Lady Gaga recommends lots of latex, wigs and "purple shampoo" for revelers hoping to channel her signature wackadoodle style. Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have gone Gosselin in what will likely be one of this year's more popular costumes. But, armed with a little creativity and a minimum of bucks, you too can channel one of this year's most recognizable celebs. Our top ideas: 1. Jon & Kate Gosselin: Okay, so Speidi beat us to the punch, but what could be easier than shearing a cheap blond wig into an asymmetrical cut, throwing on an Ed Hardy knock off and carrying around eight dolls? 2. Speidi: While Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are busy channeling Jon and Kate, a...

Caption This: When Carey met Holly

Once upon a time, Drew Carey and Holly Madison met on a red carpet in Las Vegas. Okay, so maybe it was Wednesday evening at the grand opening of Wayne Newton's new Vegas show. But what goes on here? Has Madison surprised Carey with a hand buzzer or is he just that appalled by her showgirl-meets-drapery get-up? (AP) You be the judge. Share your best shot at a faux caption for the above pic below. The top five or so will be highlighted here tomorrow. Need a little inspiration? Have a look at the ghosts of Creative Captioning past. This Week's Top Entries: 1.

Rosie O'Donnell and Kelli Carpenter in 2003. (AP) Nannies: The new must-have accessory?: What's with all the celebs who hook up with the nanny? I didn't realize Rosie had joined the Jude Law-Ethan Hawke club too. -- from last week's Celebritology Live chat. Hmmm, maybe we should shut this one down before it picks up traction. I'm not sure where you got your information, pardner, but Rosie has been married to Kelli Carpenter -- a former Nickelodeon exec -- for the past five years. And, despite last week's news that the two have separated and will likely embark on a complicated and closely-watched divorce, I haven't seen anything attributing the split to infidelity or anyone getting overly friendly with the help. But, if you're jonesing for a list of celebs who have made a love connection at home, here's a definitive run down -- in no particular order: --...
