"Heidi sees herself as the new Marilyn Monroe; she sees the need for a new blonde starlet in Hollywood and she wants to fill that void." -- Dr. Frank Ryan, Heidi Montag's plastic surgeon

Diddy, when LiLo and her leggings have more class than you, it might be time to re-evaluate your priorities.

$500k from Jennifer Anniston, which translates into just half of one episode from the final season of Friends. Not looking a gift horse in the mouth, but come on you could do a little better.

Any bets of whether Tim Burton will put Helena Bonham Carter on the Cannes jury?

Taylor Swift and Jon Mayer? If those two start breeding they could produce the most annoying musician this side of Yoko Ono.

Heidi, the only void you need to fill is the one between your ears.

Is Britney auctioning the dress her dog abused at that photo shoot? If so I'm guessing the going price will be about $2.50. Of course that should double what Lindsay will raise.

Yeah Dorkus, Jennifer made a lot of money on Friends final season but last week it was reported that Madonna donated $250,000. Who's looking cheap now?

Little Diddy, the next celebrikid in the headlines. (But I hope I'm wrong. Maybe Diddy Daddy chose the Maybach because it's really safe.)

Dr. Frank Ryan needs to have his license revoked. Sooner rather than later.

Heidi looked at Hollywood and saw a *lack* of blonde starlets? How is that even possible?

"Diddy gives son $360K car for 16th birthday..."

That wasn't a birthday gift, it was an apology for being related to Diddy.

I agree with whoever said the specificity of the Brangelina rumors make them seem credible - especially since every day we learn something new - Brad's getting his own house?

Plus - the denial (by sources close to them) seems weak. What sources are close to them? Their nannies? Their publishers/agents would - I assume - just lie. Why don't Brangelina deny the break-up themselves? It's not as if they have been private about the rest of their lives. It's always "blah blah blah - we won't get married because....blah blah...we are going to move yet again because that is so great for children...blah blah blah....we will deny our break-up in People mag. for a a $2 million fee that we will donate....blah blah..."

Taylor is adorable, the idea of her dating John Mayer is a little heartbreaking. Esp. since his MO is to use women for fame, and other things, and then bring them down by tweeting away intimate details bound to make even the most self-assured insecure. Ugh, ick, ick.

Rest in peace, Pernell Roberts.

But HER MO is to date jerks and then write hilarious songs about them. So maybe the joke with be on John Mayer this time???

If Heidi Montag looked around Hollywood and saw a lack of blonde starlets, she should have found herself an opthalmic surgeon, not a cosmetic one. As for the doc, well, revenue-driven enabling is hardly unheard of, especially in Hollywood.

John Mayer dating Taylor Swift just seems like a debauching of innocence. (Not to mention an Ick. Nast. on nearly the scale of Jeremy Piven and January Jones.)

Britney Spears auctions a dress, Lindsay Lohan donates proceeds from her leggings sales to Haiti relief... and my school community service group has a bake sale that raises more money than their efforts combined.

"Diddy gives son $360K car for 16th birthday." But LiddleDiddle has to pay for the insurance out of his own allowance.

It took Dennis Hopper for divorces to learn what the Lovely Mrs. byoolin learned after one: easier to kill next spouse than to divorce. (That knowledge is what keeps me so well-behaved.)

Tim Burton to head Cannes film jury... let's hope he doesn't pull a stunt like Weingarten wrote about on the weekend.

"Chelsea Handler moves out of boyfriend/boss's home..." This is the worst thing that's happened to him since the news item that began, "Chelsea Handler moves into boyfriend/boss's home..."

'"Miserable" Gary Coleman released from jail.' Of course he was miserable: he was the cellmate of the only other guy in prison with the nickname 'Tiny,' only with him, it was ironic.

Kudos to Jon Gosselin for figuring out what to do with society's surplus of horny not-very-bright 20-something girls.

Kudos to Jude Law, etc...

Jeremy Piven and January Jones can be explained by astrology: she's a Capricorn, and of course, he's got Mercury in his house.

"Taylor Swift dating John Mayer?" I read this and imagine them naked, with guitars, singing, "Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon." (Possibly by the end of the third verse, in fact.)

"Heidi Klum immortalized in wax." And, to hordes of teenage boys, in whacks.

"Heidi sees herself as the new Marilyn Monroe." Then she doesn't need plastic surgery, she needs Lasik.

SCC: "It took Dennis Hopper FOUR divorces..."

"Taylor Swift dating John Mayer?"
-zzzzzz...wake me when John starts dating Susan Boyle.
-and seriously, who would get their dating advice from Perez Hilton anyway?

Jeremy Piven and January Jones on the sidelines at the Saints-Vikings game (great game!)..."While Jones was reportedly using her Blackberry most of the time, Piven was tweeting photos of himself on the sideline."
- Sounds like the perfect Hollywood match to me!
- And neither one of them deserved to be at that game.

"Pam Anderson pimps new fragrance at Pennsylvania Rite-Aid."
- As a fragrance or as a stain remover?

Northgs, I just saw your earlier joke about Heidi's eyesight. Didn't mean to steal your idea... sorry.

Thanks alot Diddy, I just convinced my teenager how lucky he was to have a used Ford Focus.

Glad its the proceeds and not the actual leggings going to Haiti. Was wondering how that would go over in 90degree weather.

RIP Pernell Roberts. Bonaza theme now stuck in my head.

Taylor Swift and John Mayer? Someone save her! Where's the werewolf when you need him?

Gates parties at Sundance but committed major faux pas when he asked "Where's Paris?"

Not enough blonde starlets in Hollywood is like saying there are not enough politicians in Washington.

Free Arnold!!

Kudos to Jon Gosselin for figuring out what to do with society's surplus of horny not-very-bright 20-something girls.

But then that means there are fewer for me. Granted I'd have to stand next to Bill Gates at a party before I looked cool, but still there's the principle of the matter.

Kudos to Diddy's son for giving his $10k birthday check to charity. Few 16 year olds would be willing to do that, even if they aren't hurting for money.

Byoolin, I'm honored.

LOL hodie2 and Dorkus ... yep, even though he's the wealthiest man in the world, Bill Gates is still a nerd.

Re. Heidi Montag's "doctor" ... well, someone had to graduate last in the class.

Jude Law + Sienna Miller = today's version of the Billy Bob Thornton + Angelina Jolie. In other words, perfect for each other.

Shall we start a pool on how long until Diddy/Puffy/whatever's son crashes that car?

Who would buy a dress worn by Britney "Commando" Spears? Major Ick Nast.

Diddy might have reconsidered the amounts that went for the car vs Haiti. Couldn't the kid have gotten by with a $200,000 car? Then $100,000 could have been donated.
