Polanski: Who would have thought that Kirstie Alley would be the voice of reason? She is the ONLY high-profile Hollywood persona to forcefully condemn Polanski.

I think most actors are afraid that the big-name directors and producers have signed that stupid petition for Polanski's release.

I saw a cnn clip where they were asking actors for their thoughts on the event - and Phoebe (what's her name - Lisa Kudrow?) looked VERY uncomfortable and kept muttering "well, it was a 13-year-old girl."

Why are there no high-profile Hollywood groups signed a petition demanding that he be brought to justice for anally and vaginally raping a 13-year-old? Where's Susan Sarandin? I thought she never let a major cause get past w/o her strident commentary? Meryl Streep? Jane Fonda? Where ARE they?

"Spencer Pratt withholding sex for fear of impregnating Heidi Montag."

This is an embarrassment of riches:

1. Apparently Heincer missed their high school health classes when birth control was covered.

2. Even oral, Spence? EVEN ORAL?

3. Plus side: reduced chance of little Heincers running around any time soon.

4. Sounds like a convenient cover story to account for Spencer being a all-around 24/7 wanker.

5. Win-win: neither has to engage in post-coital pillow talk with the other.

6. Lose-lose: Heidi now getting it on with Skid Row bums in an attempt to enjoy any human contact; Spencer unable to wear briefs, having rubbed himself raw.

7. That sound we keep hearing is Heidi's sigh of relief.

8. Win-win: Both of them now have more time to devote to her music career.

9. Sweet Jesus on a pogo stick.

10. Spencer, Divine Brown. Divine Brown, Spencer.

NOW can we say the family is exploiting MJ's kids? Did we really need that quote from his daughter, via Auntie Latoya?

The French are just now figuring out the charges are serious? They have only been out there since 1978. No wonder they keep getting invaded and we have to save their butts.

I thought Kanye was in rehab. I know you are hungry Kanye, but don't eat at Tori's house or have whatever Dennis Hopper had.

Prat is not withholding sex for fear of impregnanting Heidi. He is just not into girls.

(The correct answer, for those of you scoring at home, is #9. Sweet Jesus on a pogo stick.)

Polanski getting by on $5 a day, cable TV in prison...
-He's in prison why does he need money?


Pop quiz hotshot, you've got aches, a fever, and chills. What do you do? What do you do?


Michael Jackson's daughter blames "working too hard" for dad's death, claims aunt LaToya
-Not that aunt Latoya would ever know about working too hard.


Liz, I'm glad you liked the January Jones tweet I sent you. (I feel special now)

I have to say Madonna held her own in that little bit with Dave... She's kinda funny.

Agree on the Polansky thing - why the hell are these folks not coming out and shunning him. Seriously. If they were self absorbed enought to just be worried about their careers (as if that is justification!) didn't he do that heinous Tom Cruise movie?

PS had I been the judge in that case, I wouldn't have accepted that pathetic plea bargain that the prosecutor 'negotiated' and would have thrown his a** in jail too.

Dennis Hopper hospitalized: whatever you do, don't let him get near the ether.


"Polanski getting by on $5 a day, cable TV in prison..." $5 a day? Luxury!


"Spencer Pratt withholding sex for fear of impregnating Heidi Montag."
Have I mentioned Sweet Jesus on a pogo stick?


"Realities collide as "Real Housewives" and "Kate Plus Eight" show up at same event." That has to be the least literally accurate use of the word "realities" that has ever happened.


I was really hoping that "Bizarre courtroom sketch" link was to video of the late, great John Byner's show. No such luck.


Heincer, Lauren, Audrina & Jason Wahler: geez - the news is alive with The Hills, ain't it?

That picture of Madonna eating pizza is the kind of gruesome closeup you might expect in her "Sex" book, but not in a family internet.


Justin and Jessica can't deny the split now - Dorkus called "dibs" yesterday.

While I want to believe that Spencer Pratt is being altruistic by preventing his spawn from entering the world (sweet Jesus on a pogo stick indeed), I have the sneaking suspicion that this is just a scheme to keep generating publicity.

Both byoo and dorkus are hitting on all cylinders this AM. Save it guys, the chat is this afternoon. It'll be so hard to top what you've already said.

I made the mistake of actually following the Kate link. Someone call Family Services.

Expelliarmus, you Harvard oafs! Leave Hermy alone.

Matt LeBlanc has a new show? Whatever. Better him than Schwimmer.

Will Ferrell's son -- they're hoping for a comedian this time. Would be nice to have one in the family.

Madonna looks good (Tip: Always cover your arms). I didn't need to know about the joint, but seeing them walk to the pizza place was great.

That courtroom sketch of Travolta is weird. He looks like a little person, and it takes a lot to make him look anything like one, if you get my drift.

I would like to say that I am also afraid of Spencer impregnating Heidi.

LOL! No birth control classes in my high school. Health - Hygiene class in 8th grade covered the changes of puberty and the necessity of daily grooming only. If Spencer Pratt isn't getting some kind of sex from Heidi, he is gay ,gay, gay.

td, thanks. I meant to give the LeBlanc a wgaf as well.

That Kate Gosselin story is something. Talk about deluded; my Gosselin Sympathy Meter is starting to point toward the middle again in Jon's direction.

Have to agree with Jez's eloquent assessment of the Heincer situation. Or it is God intervening preventing the spawning of the Antichrist.

Unfortunate but timely sketch of Travolta morphing into a swine.

A big "how YOU doin'?" to Matt LeBlanc.

Gotta love Jon Hamm for his comment.

Can't see the Madonna pic. Does it involve pepperoni stuck between the gap in her teeth?

Posted by: hodie | October 1, 2009 10:18 AM | Report abuse

hodie, fyi i LOVE women with the tooth gap thing (in moderation). That is, most of the time. Doesn't aoply to Madge, to whom my reaction has always been ew.

I officially have something in common with Madonna. We are both in desperate need of a manicure.

Posted by: kbockl | October 1, 2009 10:39 AM | Report abuse

I don't watch "Mad Men" so I had no opinion of Jon Hamm until I read that quote. Now I lurve him!

Kanye West... at least he's got chicken.

madonna always holds her own w/letterman. love her or hate her, there is some sort of chemistry between the two of them. he has the same sort of love/hate relationship w/cher. always fun to watch the interviews.

Madonna seemed almost likeable in that clip! Though I don't believe she's never had NYC pizza either.

Posted by: TigerLily81 | October 1, 2009 12:02 PM | Report abuse

oh, John Hamm - I'll take you in a dork moment anytime. mmmmm....

Posted by: anonymouslurker | October 1, 2009 12:07 PM | Report abuse

It's too bad stupidity isn't painful. While I definitely agree that the Speidi genes should NOT be passed on, I find myself wondering if the dippy male half of that train wreck has ever heard of, you know, a CONDOM? Most of Hollywood hasn't, so I could understand if the answer was "no".

But yeah, I think it's just a publicity stunt.

Madonna? Eats? No way.

Celeb tell-all I might actually read: Suri Cruise.

"[Mariah] Carey . . . nabbed the role [of a dowdy social worker in the drama Precious] after Oscar winner Helen Mirren dropped out."

Just mull over that line over for a while. Seriously. Go on. I'll wait.

td, I've heard that Mariah actually turns in a good performance. Who knew?

Per Jon Hamm: I don't care how dorky you are, honey. You go ahead and be as dorky as you wanna be.,,

Per Emma Watson: Can you imagine the outrage coming out of Harvard if Brown had done something like that to Natalie Portman while she was there? Tacky, tacky, tacky.
