Trial in Parker/Broderick case begins, 'New Moon' madness officially underway

By Jen Chaney
Tuesday

Trial begins for Ohio police chief in Sarah Jessica Parker/Matthew Broderick case... Michael Jackson's doctor avoids jail in child support case, Janet Jackson blames him for her brother's death... Ryan O'Neal allegedly not mentioned in Farrah Fawcett's will... Model Adriana Lima gives birth to baby girl... Instead of full frontal, Levi Johnston opts for fig leaf in Playgirl shoot... Johnny Depp becomes highest paid actor, thanks to payment for next "Pirates" gig... R.I.P., Ken Ober... Judge grants Nicole Richie restraining order against pair of photographers... Heidi and Spencer Pratt are shopping reality show because, in Heidi's words, "You don't get to see our everyday lives and what we do."

All 'Twilight,' all the time edition: 'New Moon' on Monday -- fans go nuts at L.A. premiere... Taylor Lautner tells Jay Leno about inappropriate "Twilight" mom/fan... Robert Pattinson swears "New Moon" is a really good movie. And surely he wouldn't lie to us.

"Ryan O'Neal allegedly not mentioned in Farrah Fawcett's will." Which is fair, when you think about it. After all, he didn't mention Farrah at the funeral when he was busy hitting on his daughter.


Levi Johnston's fig leaf is still well beyond the Last Chance To Maintain Some Dignity.


Fun with numbers: Taylor Lautner, Jay Leno, inappropriate "Twilight" mom/fan now outnumber the audience at home still watching Jay's show.

I think Nicole Richie needs a restraining order against telephoto zooms lenses. A little distance won't stop the paps.

Also, while Death is the Great Equalizer, Edward Woodward was a pretty damn good Equalizer in his own right. R.I.P.

Hey, byoolin, any juicy local tidbits on the police chief's trial that aren't making the wire services?


Johnny Depp becomes highest paid actor.

At least he has actual acting talent.


Heidi: "You don't get to see our everyday lives and what we do."

This will obviously come as a terrible shock to her, but I'd considered that fact a blessing.


Thanks for doing double duty with the Morning Mix, Jen. Hope Liz is feeling better soon, for her own sake (natch!) as well as everyone else's.

Hear, Hear about the shout out for Edward Woodward - an amazing actor. If you haven't seen Breaker Morant, rent it immediately! You will not be disappointed. RIP...

I just looked at the salary-comparison list included with the Johnny Depp article (he's set for £21 million), and now I'm seriously concerned for the film's quality. Here's the list:
Harrison Ford (£38m) Indiana Jones 4
Tom Hanks (£29m) Angels and Demons
Cameron Diaz (£28.5m) What Happens in Vegas
Jim Carrey (£23m) Cable Guy
Will Smith (£18m) Hancock
Sacha Baron Cohen (£16m) Borat
Mel Gibson (£17m) Lethal Weapon 4
Matt Damon (£15m) The Bourne Supremacy
Tom Cruise (£12m) Mission: Impossible III
Robert Pattinson (£10m) Twilight Saga

Although I have to wonder 1) if that Cameron Diaz figure isn't a misprint, or if she really did take home twice the entire box office for that flop; 2) if the article editors know she's a woman.

I don't get the whole Twilight thing. Then again, I haven't been a tweener girl in a very long time, so that's probably okay.

In response to Heidi's latest statement, America asks Heincer, "How is this a problem?"

Get well, Liz! Jen, thanks for feeding our addiction.

"Heidi and Spencer Pratt are shopping reality show because, in Heidi's words, "You don't get to see our everyday lives and what we do."

The Pratts - Mensan family.

So "New Moon" actually refers to what was displayed when the 40-something woman asked Taylor Lautner to autograph the panties she was wearing.

"Levi Johnston opts for fig leaf in Playgirl shoot..."
- Sarah Palin reportedly not pleased about the "porn shoot" but quite relieved when she found out that he posed with a strategically placed copy of "Going Rogue."

"Heidi and Spencer Pratt are shopping reality show because, 'You don't get to see our everyday lives and what we do.'"
- Everyday lives...sounds kind of boring. Three months on an Alaskan crab boat, however, and I'd pay to see that!

"Farrah Fawcett did not get her wish to die at home."
- There is something worse in this world than a "death panel"-- spending your last days with Ryan O'Neal and Alana Stewart.

Edward Woodward was great!

Breaker Morant is one of my favorite movies. And his version of The Wicker Man will always be the best.

And we've all be out celebrating that.

Wow, Ken Ober, way too young. I loved Remote Control back in the days when they actually played music videos & it was a nice break from the usual music video programming instead of the other way 'round.

Time's "Person of the year" for '09 should be the Grim Reaper. The death of Ken Ober, is the straw that broke the celebrity-death-camel's back for me. Ugh, bring on 2010.

Glad to see all the shout outs for Edward Woodward. I worked with him on a film and he was a true gentleman.

One of the amazing things about Palin's book as far as I can see is that neither the publisher nor her co writer nor anyone in between had any concerns about the title. Look it up in the urban dictionary. Just wow.

Then she'd have something in common with her would-be son-in-law.

I'm talking about the other definitions, Sas. It's only recently that it is being equated with going commando.

Where is everyone today?

cat, I suspect that in Sarah-land, words mean what she says they mean. Lewis Carroll would be proud, I guess.

I read the Heincer quote as "You don't WANT to see our everyday lives and what we do," and don't have any problem with that idea.

Sas beat me with his "Moon" shot, but considering how late I am, that wasn't hard.

Sarah shouldn't complain about Levi, after her hawt "Newsweek" cover. Wonder if he's coming for Thanksgiving. If so, what will he wear?

Anyone else besides me unable to receive (or make) comments on the Wednesday Morning Mix?
