From the Polanski story:

"All I know is that he has been taken from prison for medical attention. I don't know where he is or when he will be returned to prison," lawyer Herve Temime said.

Uh-oh. Yet again, the lawyer doesn't know where Polanski is - sort of a habit with Polanski by now.

What on earth is going on? Every site I've visited this morning is yakking about Jennifer Love Hewitt and how hurt she is by rumors about relationships. Who on earth CARES about Jennifer Love Hewitt? Why is this news?

Lovely. Why do I think that medical treatment will be in a country that doesn't have an extradition treaty with the US? They don't have infirmaries in prisons in Switzerland?

Madonna's neighbors knew who was moving in when they approved her coop application. This is what you get when you are star struck by celebrity and blinded by money.

Hey, ep and Dorkus, good times in Longhorn nation this weekend?

"Studios banning stars from Twitter" - Just great - now we'll never know what Cameron Diaz *really* thinks.


Miley Cyrus in SATC2: it's like throwing a kitten into the cougar cage, innit?


Good luck to SJP on her new perfume, although calling it "Smells Like Nelsonville, Ohio" might not have been the best name for it.


John Stamos drunk during Australian TV appearance - and? It's Australia, mate: even the PM's off his face - and I mean as full as a goog, rotten, with the wobbly boot on and a gutful of p*ss - when he's on tv. So, John, good onya.


"Clump of Elvis's hair sells for $15K." Cheap, compared to the money the mad scientist who bought it will spend on cloning an army of Elvises.


Susan Boyle's stomach pains: if you've ever wondered what would happen if your performance rider stipulated nothing but Glenfiddich and haggis backstage...


44 drugs? Geez, just the copays alone would have killed a lesser woman.


If KoKa owns more than $100K in jewelry, why does she always look like her accessories come from Dollar General?


"Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom reach prenup deal... " Let's hope it includes $100K in accessories from Dollar General.


"Paris Hilton demands lobsters, vodka for one-day movie shoot." In fairness, the lobster is her acting coach, and the vodka is the only way he can get through a day of coaching her.

Nosy -- very good day. OU 13, Texas 16 and one broken Bradford.

Clooney
"I'm kind of comfortable with getting older because it's better than the other option, which is being dead."

Didn't Maurice Chevalier say something similar upon turning 75? Not sayin' that George isn't right to repeat the sentiment (happens to the best of us!), but it's not original with him.


Clump of Elvis's hair sells for $15K.

Proof once again that some people have too much money.


John Stamos admits he was drunk during 2007 Australian TV appearance.

Not that your behavior then was admirable, but it's already been a couple years, guy. Anything for publicity now that you're in a not-well-reviewed Broadway show?


Jennifer Love Hewitt calls breakup rumors (from boyfriend Jamie Kennedy) "hurtful."

I'm sure they are. But when you "live by the sword" (lapping up all the benefits of leading parts of your private life in the public eye, you have to expect that this comes with the territory.


ep

I'm guessing that nations not having extradition treaties with the US might not generally have the world's best level of medical care, either. Maybe Dr. hodie can fill us in on this?

"if I'm not there to receive these ideas, God might give them to Prince." -- Michael Jackson

- Great. Now Prince gets to steal bad melodies from Paul Anka.

"Sarah Jessica Parker launching a new fragrance, SJP NYC."

- Fab. I hope it captures the way the breeze off the Hudson wafts over urine, cab exhaust and hot dog vendor steam.

"Stephanie Pratt arrested on suspicion of DUI"

- Liz, please correct your typo. That should be SPENCER Pratt arrested.

"Bethany Frankel engaged."

- Just as she leaves the cast of Real Housewives of NYC.

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom reach prenup deal.

Is it really a PRE-nup if you're already married? (Sorry to be so literal)

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | October 19, 2009 11:00 AM | Report abuse

$100,000 worth of jewelry. Thats a lot of cubic zirconium.


mdreader, I too was hoping that it was really Spencer who was arrested.


Nosy, after I recovered from a few heart attacks the day turned out well.

Wasn't this the one where there was some question as to whether or not it was actually real? (The wedding, I mean.)

Presumably, if Polanski was denied bail and is still in custody (which the article says he is), he's not being transported out of Switzerland for medical treatment.

I'm home from work today and thus caught a bit of Live with Regis and Kelly. They had Hilary Swank on talking about her new movie; and I quote, "Richard Gere, Ewan MacGregor - not a bad day at the office."

Dorkus & ep, Winning ugly is still preferable to losing ugly.

"Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom reach prenup deal."

The prenup has a no-trade clause and Lamar can opt out in 2011-12 if he meets certain incentives.

Nosy, I don't think he really needs medical treatment. This is just an excuse to get him out of the jail. Even if still technically in custody, security in the hospital will be less. So, he's off to the train station and back to France in minutes. Remember, they won't extradite him treaty or not.

MStreet, that's brilliant!


ep

As you know I'm no defender of Polanski's, but he IS 75 now so it's plausible that he really does have some physical health issues.

Every time SJP farts, the media report that she launches a new scent.

Don't such exploits take the Heenes a couple months of planning?

If it had been SPENCER Pratt, the item would've read, "Spencer Pratt arrested on suspicion of EEG." There's less blowing around in that little head of his than in the aforementioned balloon.

Lindsay Lohan ought to have her own courtroom, complete with a revolving door.

SJP has a new cologne? Take THAT, you neigh sayers.

And I guess Susan Boyle just got around to watching that DVD of "Britain's Got Talent." Gave my gut some issues, too.

"You don't understand -- if I'm not there to receive these ideas, God might give them to Prince," said Michael Jackson. Replied Prince, "He is 2 stupid 4 words."

I think Prince actually replied "Ω" or maybe it was "♣".
