"Making his way to the very back row of the classroom, Cruise quietly took a seat amongst students.."

The shocking thing about this story is that there was room in the back row of a law school class.

Jon Gosslin, bigger than Paris Hilton, in more ways than one.

California judge expunges Mel Gibson's drunk driving conviction...And immediately following that, Roman Polanski hired Mel Gibson's lawyer.

Um, Liz?

The GFY Girls covered the Carrie Fisher picture last week. It's stage makeup.

Get well soon, Ms. Taylor.

I'm surprised Tom didn't stand up and say law was bunk and he knew it because he had studied it. Really, law lectures are incomprehensible and boring to the students, I can only imagine how hard that idiot found it to follow.

Nice slap at Taylor Swift, Beyonce. You were classier when you let her finish her speech.

And - uh - Liz, maybe this should read:

"RECOGNIZING THAT HE WILL IMMEDIATELY FLEE FROM JUSTICE YET AGAIN if released, Swiss authorities deny Polanski's bail request."

Sheesh. jumping bail in the past is the one sure way of being denied bail.

Beyonce, a little advice on the Kanye subject...Shut up. Now it sounds like you are a sore loser too. "...he was standing up for art...". Uhh, right.

Can't see the Brooke Shields, Jim Belushi story. What happened?

What good is it going to do Mel Gibson to have his record expunged when there ain't nobody gonna forget what an a$$ he is?

Dorkus, thanks for setting us straight on Carrie Fisher. I thought maybe next we would be reading about her becoming roommates with Kate Jackson or something.

At least Jon didn't claim he was bigger than Jesus.

Wow. That Ben Affleck pic - he looks remarkably dim, even for him. There's *nothing* behind those eyes.

ValGal beat me to the Jon/Paris punch.

K-Fed trashed a place to make it feel more like home? Imagine that.

Good for the Swiss authorities; glad to see that they've got a solid grasp of the obvious.

"Kanye West was 'standing up for art,' says Beyonce" -- Ladies and gentlemen, I believe we've found the world's most clueless person. I present: Beyoncé.

"Lindsay Lohan abusing prescription drugs, claims dad" -- Michael Lohan abusing 15 minutes of fame, claims daughter.

"Did Brad Pitt secretly meet Jennifer Aniston at hotel?" -- Who cares anymore? He can meet her in the middle of Times Square, for all I care. Better yet, head to some deserted island without electricity. GO already.

"Carrie Fisher's eye shadow mishap." -- Are you sure that's Carrie Fisher and not Sharon Osbourne? Is Boy George doing her makeup these days?

"George Michael denies he's split from long-time boyfriend" -- Denying how, specifically? Getting matching tattoos? Renewing their vows?

"Brooke Shields and Jim Belushi involved in minor on-the-tarmac crash" -- For a second there, I thought it said "clash." I had this vision of the two in a boxing ring on some airport runway. With Julie Newmar behind Brooke giving her fighting tips in one corner and Adam West behind Belushi giving him acting tips. BAM! POW!

Liz, twitting: "They'll fix my heart, my leaky, leaky heart..."

Tom, sitting: To boost admission during a recession, Harvard is allowing professors to open their classes to experienced celebrities. Next up, Henry Lewis Gates Jr. will invite Mel Gibson to discuss how he handled police brutality.

Bielimberlake splitting: I like the idea of having grandma handling your PR. Between the thank you notes and the cookies she sends, the paparazzi will be way too busy to bother you.

You know I was going to defend Ben but I looked at the picture and you're right, he looks totally vacant. There is the cutest picture of Jennifer Garner and their little girl though smiling in the rain, would that I looked that good without any makeup... le sigh.

Paris may be taller than Jon but obviously we're measuring by volume.

Tom DeLay quitting: Could Tom DeLay be the only contestant in DWTS history that did not lose weight during the competition? And anyway, doesn't the Governor of Texas get to pick someone to replace him?

Brad Pitting: Wouldn't it be nice if Jen told him to go pound rocks? Perhaps Brad can team up with Jon Gosslin for a "The View" like show where they can sit around and complain about how women don't understand their complex natures.

I watched clips of DeLay dancing, and every time I found myself wondering:

"Is he wearing Depends?"

Posted by: dablues1 | October 7, 2009 11:40 AM | Report abuse

DeLay and DePends. No, I don't think he had his posterior covered that well. Kind of a habit with him.

I like mdreader's submission for the Lizard Island Network shows, which are still running ahead of the "real" TV shows.

Beyonce doesn't know when to STFU. But she's still young.

Affleck should consider returning to Boston and pushing that broom. No, wait, that was just a movie.

Let's hope Phil Spector has Roman's San Quentin cot warmed up.

Re Mel's record cleared: does that mean he's no longer linked with that no-talent Russian person? Is it OK for my s-i-l to looove him again?

I mentally captioned the picture:

Gerard Butler, Jamie Foxx and Michael Irby salute Beyonce's Booty.

Whether it existed or not, the fact that a meeting between her partner and his ex-wife has to be secret, says everything about Angelina, doesn't it? Hello, insecure ...

And Brad, that beard's still f-u-u-ugly.

Was Ben Affleck making a movie with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence?

Michael Lohan on daughter Lindsay's state:

"When you hug her she's like, vacant inside. When she kisses or holds me I get chills, and not in a good way-in a bad way."

Uhhhh, Mister Lohan, if you get chills in a "good way" when Lindsay kisses you, then you're both in a bad way.

Delay did to his feet what he did to Texas congressional districts, they too ended up gerrymandered.
