Celeb In-Law news? Who gives a rat's a$s?

Will the Voltaggio brothers chat include any nude jello wrestling? Because I know some people that would pay good money for pictures of that.

Uh David, I'm assuming you actually saw what Michael Jackson looked like after his plastic surgery. So, unless you have cataracts you really have no one to blame but yourself.

People please stop suing Nicholas Cage otherwise he'll have to keep making movies like Wickerman and the Knowing to pay for his legal bills. And no one wants that.

Unless Michael Jackson performed the surgery himself, he is not to blame for the hideousness that is David Gest.

Kate, that is why reality shows are bad for kids. They get used to performing for the cameras and are lost when it ends. They don't know how to cope without the attention. Kinda like you.

Bravo Elton John! This adoptive parent salutes your outreach efforts.

Releasing 911 calls is just wrong. Are medical records next?!

Eminem? Really? Kanye's gonna be MAD.

Poor Gosselin kids. Mom and Dad are actually going to have to buy camcorders so they can take home movies to show the kids when they're older. HA.

They just clarified on Regis and Kelly that Bryant Gumbel didn't have lung cancer but cancer in his chest and had a small piece of his lung removed to make sure it hadn't spread to his lung. He had announced it on the show yesterday and wasn't clear enough apparently.

Oh, and another thing. Why in God's name would ANYONE spend $11,000 on a 33" X 33" portrait of Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate "from the waist up, their arms on or around each other and gazing into the lens"? This is art?

Don't get me wrong; Tate was a very beautiful woman. But $11,000?! Imagine what that kind of money could do for, say, a boy in Ukraine who's not going to live with Elton John. Some people just have more money than sense.

Good luck to Elton. The boy is adorable. Love anyone who is a fan of Thomas the Tank.

So David, if Michael told you to try home general anesthesia for your insomnia, would you try it?? huh? Your actions are your own, bud.

sjcpeach, did they say what kind of cancer in the chest it was?

Gatorade "...says it made the decision before the golfer's car accident led to a media firestorm surrounding his personal life." Folks, remember this statement the next time Gatorade tells you how good its product is for you.

Kate's kids "miss the TLC cameras," she misses having all those unpaid babysitters.

"Ex sues Nicolas Cage for $13 million." Don't worry, it's for his new movie and it was the only way the director could get Nic to act surprised.

J-Simp dating Billy Corgan: despite all his rage, he is still just a rat in a bad relationship.

"A breakup for Uma Thurman and fiance," or, as the guys like to call it, "an early Christmas present."

While out shopping last night, I saw a woman with a Kate Gosselin hairdo, plus it was blonde in front but brunette in back. Pass the brain bleach, please!

Get well wishes to Bryant Gumbel on his continued recovery from a cancer NEAR his lung that entailed removal of part of his lung, especially as he mentioned he's not a smoker (don't know whether he used to be one, though).

td, I had the same thought. Looks like Kanye should have bought more Beyonce tunes.

I'm afraid getting Nic Cage to make decent movies again is a lost cause.

I just had a disturbing thought about Elton John and the Ukrainian boy. Let's just say I hope Mel Gibson had nothing to do with it.

We already had Craig's list, Angie's list and Cyndy'c list. Now we have Tiger's list. Wonder what services it rates.

and hearing 911 calls on any media I find really disturbing. Even if, or maybe especially if, the person is a celebrity in-law that Jez doesn't give a rat's behind about. I realize we all pay a 911 fee on our phone bill, but I don't think that entitles us to hear the call. Not only are we getting info from someone's medical record, but we might also be getting info from someone's police record.

"Alleged mistress Rachel Uchitel spills to OK!"
-Rachel Uchitel never meant to hook up with Tiger Woods at all. She was angling to be George Clooney's next ex-girlfriend.

"Kate Gosselin says kids miss the TLC cameras..."
-Remind them that they're only about 10 years away from MTV and E cameras.

"Rihanna shows off new tattoo:' ‘Never a failure, always a lesson,’ but written backwards."
-Now we know that Rihanna does her daily self-affirmation in front of a mirror.

"Josh Brolin may join cast of 'Men in Black 3.'"
-Where he'll reprise his role as George W. Bush, who, due to a quirk in those crazy Texas laws, gets called back to the Air National Guard to fight an alien invasion. But at the end of the movie when he gets his brain cleansing zap, he pretty much returns to the guy he was when he was President.

911 calls (and police records for that matter) are public records under the sunshine laws. The local government can NOT legally withhold them no matter who the caller is or what the issue is. This is controlled by state law, and there are VERY few exceptions, for example, police investigation files are only confidential while the investigation is on-going. Once the case is closed, any one can request a copy of that file.

David Gest, I would like to introduce you to a concept called 'personal responsibility'. If you're stupid enough to take plastic surgery advice from someone who looked like a freak science experiment gone horribly wrong, you have nobody to blame but yourself.

Posted by: Californian11 | December 9, 2009 1:55 PM | Report abuse

It would be OK! with me if Rachel Uchitel would be spilling out of her top on that OK! web site.

I wonder when she'll change her name to Rachel Kissentel.

Posted by: sasquatchbigfoot | December 9, 2009 2:47 PM | Report abuse

I believe Rachel's last name is pronounced "ooky-tell," which just about says it all as far as I'm concerned.

ValGal, Obviously the media CAN legally get 911 tapes. I'm just thankful the "mute" button on my TV works very well.

Congrats to Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen on their new baby boy. No name yet (please, please, please let it be normal). But that's two boys for old Tom. Hmmm.

Uma Thurman had an EIGHT-CARAT diamond? That rock must've weighed her down like a brontoburger on Fred Flintstone's car. Could she raise her hand?!

BREAKING TIGER BIMBO NEWS: Regarding the first item in my snark list this morning--

US magazine published Wednesday what it says are text messages between Tiger Woods and his mistress, Jaimee Grubbs. The magazine also reports that Grubbs slept with actor George Clooney.

As I was saying about about Rachel....

mdreader, I'm thinking that Lizards should start buying stock in companies that make VD-testing kits.
