Comments

Now that Miley's quit Twitter, it can go back to being the "hard news" site it used to be


Heart surgery went "perfectly," tweets Elizabeth Taylor...


Marge Simpson in Playboy: finally, we'll know whether or not the cuffs match the collar.


If only Nicolas Cage had a dollar for every time someone came out of one of his movies thinking, "Gawd, what dreck!" he'd be able to pay his tax bill.


Khloe & Lamar did a much better job faking their wedding than I've been able to do faking any interest in it. But at least I learned that an anagram of "Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom" is "Salamander had a Roman kid look," which might very well describe any kids they might have together.


"Eddie Murphy drops out of Richard Pryor biopic." Man, that n-word's crazy.


"I don't want them raised as children who have 'movie star' parents." -- Angelina Jolie.
"Then you should have let Dave Coulier adopt them." -- byoolin

If I were on Twitter, I'd tweet that byoolin's comments were "perfect." But now that Miley is not on, I don't see the point in joining.

I just can't believe byoo passed up a chance to comment on Hillary Swank's class, though.

Re: Angelina's comment

Are you there Reality? It's me, Angelina. Could you go away. I like this bubble of self deception I'm living in much better.

I said nothing because I couldn't figure out how to top a six-year-old boy who can say, "I saw Hillary Swank NAKED."

Is that why Angelina dresses her childen in the dumpiest clothes she can find? Does she want them to feel less privileged? Like they are not the children of movie stars?

I notice that she always looks chic and taken care of. But her children look like they are not even wearing clean clothes - why is that?

Posted by: Amelia5 | October 9, 2009 9:17 AM | Report abuse

Bet that six year old is wondering why all the high school boys keep trying to get invited to his slumber parties.


I guess I need to update the list of people I follow on twitter now.

I can't stand Hilary Swank. If I had to choose, I'd rather be trapped in an elevator with Diane Keaton than with Hilary Swank.

If those were my choices, Stuck, I'd take te stairs.

After 5 minutes in here with Diane Keaton doing that annoying laugh and Hilary Swank bobbing up and down like she's ready to hit someone, I'm joing Stuck and byoolin in the stairway.

So, Angelina, your kids think you move every 10 minutes and you and their father's pictures are on magazine covers just for the heck of it?

Of course Dina says no to an intervention. That show name is already taken.

Posted by: epjd | October 9, 2009 9:56 AM | Report abuse

Hilary Swank spent several months as a boy in a movie. She's spent every month since trying to convince the world she's a girl.

Thank goodness there's no Playcouple magazine, otherwise we'd see matchups like Levi Johnston and Marge Simpson and . . . oh never mind.

The Lohan family WAS planning an intervention, but then they all decided to go clubbing and get loaded together instead.

And here I thought that Dina just didn't want to bite the hand that feeds her.

Hilary Swank, no boundaries. Think the dad of this 6-year-old needs to step in here.

I clicked on the links today. I snark better when I don't. But I learned so much.

- Tracy Morgan is a Star Wars fan.

- Miley's boyfriend is banning Twitter to stop those get-togethers with Heincer.

- Will.i.am is hoping that Amy Winehouse doesn't try to enter a video extolling the virtues of the British Public Health Service.

- Dina Lohan thinks her daughter doesn't need rehab. She also thinks her daughter is a genius.

- And Miley Cyrus is right to support gay marriage. Just look at all the messed up, divorced straight marriages we've got in today's Morning Mix.

Jennifer Hudson's baby is adorable. So happy for her. She deserves happiness.

mdreader, I am reminded of a great episode of The West Wing where a Congressmember wants to introduce a bill to ban marriage. ALL marriage. He said, If the government will not allow all people to marry, then we should get out of the business entirely. ;-)

Let's all add Hillary Swank's boyfriends son to the Hollywood children whose memoirs we'd buy in advance.

I got no snark this morning. I think the image of a bony, scrawny, nekkid Hilary Swank did me in.

I miss The Swayze.

So I'll send my Friday love to the Travoltas. I don't especially lurve them, but what they have been through - and are still goig through - just breaks my heart. Here's hoping for peace and strength for them.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Soon, several million young boys will be able to brag, "I saw Marge Simpson NAKED!"
This may get their older male relatives in trouble.

Quite a few contenders today for parent of the year awards.

We have Jon Gosselin who should at least get credit for not using his own fingers to correct the spelling on his own daughters' birthday cake.

We have boyfriend of Hillary Swank who is front runner for this years Shia LeBeouf Naked Parenting award (by proxy).

We also have, Brangelina, who are up for the We Are the World Parenting award, brought to you by Garmin, you will never be lost.

Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook get the Can't We All Just Get Along? Parenting award AND will each be awarded their special wish of a free stay in the clink for each of them.

Dina Lohan gets the Lifetime Achievement Award for most screwed up prodigy. Congrats, Dina.

I'm sure there are others. Who else is deserving?

hodie, the award that Hilary Swank's bf wins should be Comment of the Week, and a category in next year's Lizzies.

How about Qwitter, northgs?

I can't believe I'm defending Jon Gosselin, but I'm guessin' he didn't decorate that birthday cake himself and the spelling error was actually the fault of the bakery. "Maddy" is a common spelling, "Mady" is not.

Thanks reddragon!

Californian, you're right, and I gave him credit for not trying to fix the cake himself!

Now,now. Nobody said that they should be punished.

I don't know who bears the stronger resemblance to Seabiscuit: Hilary Swank or Sarah Jessica Parker.

Okay, not the hugest Angelina Jolie fan, but I do admire the way she and Brad Pitt take those kids to do things normal kids do.

Granted, there's more security and a !@#$%^&*-load of paparazzi/gawkers, but they take those kids to museums, to theme parks, to ice cream, to the park, to whatever. It's a privileged existence, but those kids are getting to do things kids with parents who aren't international film stars do.

Compared to Gwyneth Paltrow's kids, they are probably going to be far more normal. I bet Gwynnie never lets her kids have ice cream without checking the pedigree of the cows who donated the milk for the cream or the source of the sugar...Brangelina don't seem to go that far, and good for them.
