Hot Messes: Distaff Dirtbags

Last Friday, I listed my top 10 most desirable dirtbags. In the interest of fair play, this week we give the same treatment to the female equivalent. For definition purposes, we're calling our nominees "hot messes": Women who, despite a skanky reputation or rough exterior, still command some serious sex appeal. Who would be on my list? Well, I'm thinking chicks like Megan Fox, who has gone out of her way to trash up her reputation to compete with one-time wild child Angelina Jolie. Or Lindsay Lohan, who amidst what seems like a slow-motion shame spiral, still manages to exude some sex appeal. But since my tastes may not actually jibe with that of the average chick admirer, I've asked for help from one: Paul Williams -- The Post's live discussion guru and producer of my weekly chat. His list -- and reasons for each inclusion -- follow below. And,...

Meg Ryan + Moth Cloth = Fail!

Meg Ryan on Monday at New York premiere of 'Serious Moonlight.' (AP) Okay, Meg Ryan. Enough already. First it was the ill-advised plastic surgery, then the insulting remake of "The Women" and now you come at us wearing some kind of body-covering sheath that might could double as an entymology final exam (Sample test question: The moth quietly resting on Meg's right breast is: a. Attacus atlas, b. Bombyx mori, or c. One element, among many, of a hideous dress). The irony? Real moths wouldn't dare eat that rag. What's worse, you wore it to the premiere of your new movie (opening this weekend) "Serious Moonlight," which is summarized thusly by IMDB.com: "A high-powered attorney duct tapes her adulterous husband to the toilet ... right before their home is invaded by burglars." Someone needs to duct tape you to a stylist. Stat....

Tiger's Tale: Worth telling?

Tiger Woods and wife Elin Nordegren in October. (AFP/Getty Images) In the space of a week, Tiger Woods has gone from a reputation of sterling untouchability -- not just a sports star, but the very definition of celebrity done right -- to the top of the paparazzi target list. What we know is that Woods was injured in an accident last Friday at his Florida home. We know that cops won't file charges, but that Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren have, so far, refused (as is their right) to speak with the police to answer questions about the events leading up to Tiger's one-car incident. Perhaps worse is the slow-motion wreck unfolding online as as-yet unsubstantiated claims of extra-marital affairs have piled up in no time flat. First with the National Enquirer outing alleged Tiger mistress Rachel Uchitel (who RadarOnline now claims Woods flew to Australia for a...

Catching up (again) with Charlie Murphy, a standup guy

(Courtesy Simon & Schuster) When we last talked to Charlie Murphy, back in March, he talked about his upcoming book, "Charlie Murphy: The Making of a Stand-Up Guy." Well, it hits store shelves today and Murphy is busy promoting it and his burgeoning stand-up comedy career. Yesterday, I talked with Murphy by phone to get a preview of what to expect from the book, his plans for interstellar entertainment and how he feels about one of brother Eddie's movies topping the Hollywood Reporter's list of film flops of the new century. Turns out that part wasn't so funny. Read on for the full Q and A......

Who is Rachel Uchitel?

Club hostess Rachel Uchitel is hounded by paparazzi as she gets into a car outside her Manhattan home on Sunday. (AP) It's been an eventful, to say the least, holiday weekend for Tiger Woods. As the Post's Amy Shipley reports in today's paper, Woods has taken full blame for a Friday accident in which he drove his SUV into a tree. Woods has also said, in a statement posted to his Web site, that the events leading up to the accident are a "private matter." Not for the National Enquirer, though, and a public accustomed to dirt dishing. Last week the tabloid published a story alleging Woods had been carrying on an affair with 34-year-old New York club hostess Rachel Uchitel. Uchitel, it should be noted, has denied rumors of an affair and since hired Gloria Allred to handle her case, and media relations, from this point forward. But...
