Um, Liz, not that I'm not glad Tobey Maguire isn't doing Superman, I think you meant Spider-Man.

Whoops. Yes, it's "Spider-Man" of course. It's corrected. And I need a Diet Coke to wake up.

I won't be satisfied with Glee until there is a Liza Minelli/Harvey Fierstein episode. They could play twin sisters or something.

"Simon Cowell leaving "American Idol" at the end of 2010 season." Maybe this season of the show could be all about finding a replacement for him. (Or maybe William Hung is available.)


If America's Got So Much Frickin' Talent, why are they hiring a Canadian to replace the Hoff?


I got an invitation in the mail today:

Mel GIBSON
Requests the PLEASURE of your COMPANY
at
A PITY PARTY
in honor of TIGER WOODS
Sunday, January the Seventeenth, Two Thousand Ten

Drinks & hors d'oeuvres followed by a discussion of the ways in which THE JEWS are responsible.

RSVP

"$1 million in jewels, furs and electronics allegedly stolen from Usher's SUV." Apparently none of the "electronics" included a car alarm.

No no no no no no! Paul was supposed to marry ME this time! At least that was my first reaction, until I clicked on the link and saw a current photo. Nevermind, I'm good Sir P, keep your socialite.

Yellowjkt & byoolin each made me spit coffee on my keyboard this morning. I'll send the bill c/o WaPo.

OMFG YES!!! THIS!!! SOOOOO MUCH!!

If only Freddie Mercury or Judy Garland were still alive to make the triumverate complete!!!

I watched about 20 seconds of that Travolta vid & had to stop because it was from that horrid movie he just did. Wait, I guess I should specify since pretty much most movies he's done lately have been horrid...Old Dogs, that's the movie it's from. Couldn't watch anymore.

That said, when they did a closeup of him, I realized he really is a handsome man, even with the extra weight & wig, he still is a good looking guy. I'd prefer him without the wig but every girl has her little beauty things & that's hers.

Precious thought of the week, "Mel Gibson feels sorry for Tiger Woods." I bet he does.....
If I were Tiger, I surely think I would not be terribly grateful.
The best thing about this whole Tiger mess is the ingeniousness and creativity of his statement regarding the accident, "My wife, Elin, acted courageously when she saw I was hurt and in trouble. She was the first person to help me."

I see Dita Von Teese is angling to be the trashy version of Jennifer Aniston.

Of course Tobey Maguire had to refuse anymore Spiderman movies, he has all those OTHER serious films to do.

Beyonce's taking a break from what exactly? Selling her soul to family members of terrorists? Yeah, that can get pretty exhausting.

Actually, Tobey Maquire might be being gracious about being kicked off the franchise for being too old:

Joe Namath's daughter? Aren't we stretching a bit to find "celebrity" news?

Since there isn't going to be a Spider Man 4, how is Kirsten Dunst going to get her pot money?

Mel Gibson feels sorry for Tiger Woods...
Apparently tried to offer Tiger a hug saying, "Come here sugar tits, it'll be ok."


Brangelina skipping the Golden Globes...
Angie says she's already got a pair.


Sir Paul, *cough* pre-nup *cough cough*

Howie Mandell replacing the Hoff? The Hoff was already a no talent hack - why not go for Paris Hilton or Greg Street(aka Ghostcrawler) if you're going for the talentless irony tag. I mean - Howie picks up the 'phone' and talks to the banker - that's far more demonstrable talent than my other options.

Interesting stuff about "Spider-Man"- both Raimi and Maguire left the project, and they're planning to reboot the entire franchise. I always thought you had to drive the franchise into the ground before you rebooted it. I wonder if Marvel is going to try and snag the property back now that they have their own studio. (Ofc, the big news in my nerdtacular neck of the woods is that Raimi is now free to direct the Warcraft movie. I think he's planning to do another project first, but Jeebus I hope he stays on for that.)

Also, quintilus, I just picked up the Ghostcrawler reference. I assume he promised you a pony that you did not receive. (Or you have played a ret pally during Wrath at any point.)

Clearly the answer is for her to marry Sir Paul.

Is Howie not afraid of contracting Ozzie's germs sitting next to Sharon? Might catch a case of the mumbles...

Does Brangelina have a sock drawer to clean out or something?

Lizards are showing remarkable restraint avoiding remarks containing the words Oprah, PETA, and cow.

Toby McGuire, coming to an NCIS near you.

Posted by: dablues1 | January 12, 2010 11:30 AM | Report abuse

14? Isn't that statutory rape? Anyway, ew.

WHO CARES, Brangelina!!! Someone suffers from a serious case of self-importance. You don't hear other major stars proclaiming they're not attending and "over" Hollywood. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

Note to Paul McCartney: definition of insanity = repeating the same behavior and expecting a different result. I would also direct that to Amy Wine-o, but she is already insane, so no point.

Maybe O's skirt is pleather?

Megan Fox buys $3 million L.A. home.
-Byoolin sits by the phone awaiting her call for him to come wash her car.

Kate Gosselin and her new extensions step out...
-long blond hair....is she trying to attract Tiger Woods for some quick $5 M hush money?

Larry pulls the plug on Tila. "my fanbase demographic and to the people that matter to my career dont watch Larry King," Tila e-mailed.

- I guess Larry King doesn't register with the skanky Twitter addicts that make up Tila's "fanbase demographic."

dorkus, the future mrs. mccartney comes from lots and lots of money. her father is in the trucking business in either new york or new jersey. cough, cough.
still, paul probably won't be as stupid this time, altho' one can never underestimate the male's behavioral stupid gene. (ours is emotional).

Posted by: frieda406 | January 12, 2010 1:59 PM | Report abuse

frieda, I'm in the middle of dealing with the consequences of the male stupidity gene (coupled with the female emotional gene). That is one gene that should never be underestimated.

A word of advice to Dorkus: Smart, interesting, witty though plain girls can usually improve their looks radically with just a cosmetic makeover. But pretty girls who aren't smart, interesting or witty are often irremediable.

Ditto for plain guys.

So go for the smart, interesting witty girls.

Oh, come now, Nosy. Smart, interesting, and witty it ain't, but that trick of balancing three beer bottles in my mouth is sure to amuse and delight for years to come.

Posted by: Bawlmer51 | January 12, 2010 3:19 PM | Report abuse

Yeah, but Nosy what about the girls that are smart, interesting, witty, and pretty?

Posted by: DorkusMaximus1 | January 12, 2010 3:33 PM | Report abuse

As long as the criteria are in that order, you should be OK.

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | January 12, 2010 3:35 PM | Report abuse

Uh, nosy, why are you giving Dorkus advice on the kind of girls he should go for?

Posted by: epjd | January 12, 2010 4:01 PM | Report abuse

Well, ep, aren't you smart, interesting, witty?
