Val, it's a Congressman, it will take more than 50 cents to buy him off.

Like Jon Voight would know the state of his daughter's relationship.

Tom Cruise calls its firing, the PR agency calls it a god send.

I'm surprised Jay's and Oprah's egos could exist in the same room together without resulting in a violent chemical reaction visible from space.

And we thought at one time that being Britney Spears' personal assistant was bad? Try being Gisele Bundchen's maid.

I don't think it's only Christians who take issue with Heidi's plastic surgery.

Tom Cruise needs to find a PR agent more in tune with who he is. The crazy cat lady on The Simpsons comes to mind.

In honour of JSimp's "supposed flatulence" I will henceforth refer to her as JShart.

"Heidi Montag deluged with Christian hate mail about plastic surgery." It's god to know that if Heidi can't show us the light, we've always got that Christian hate to fall back on.

Now there's another thing Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz have in common...

Er, "good," not "god." (Never "god.")

Alrighty, it's those self-righteous "Christians" that give other Christians a bad name. Christians, real ones, do not go around judging and condemning every person that is not exactly like them or follow their beliefs exactly. It seems the hate mongering "Christians" forget to do unto others as they would have them do unto them. God is the only one who can judge and condemn, not imperfect man.

Amen, IrishFox.

Sorry to go off topic celebritologists but does anyone know what the type on Wash. Post news stories is HUGE? I've tried resizing it smaller but apparently my choices are HUGE, HUGER, and HUGEST. This started last night.

td, am guessing Oprah and Leno both had to be fitted with ego corsets for the show.

With the JSimp item, one wonders where Jez is. Probably monitoring the Obamas.

Finally something I can admire Heidi Montag for.

Hope calling Taylor Swift a "sunsihiney music pixie" doesn't adversely affect her career.

Word, irishfox.

I'm low on snark today; maybe it's seeing Anne Hathaway beaming at us from today's image. She just always makes me smile. (Okay, the drag queens may have something to do with that.)

Hey, methinks - fonts look normal here. Are images really large too, or just text?

You might try pressing the CTRL key and the - key (on a PC) or the Command key and the - key (on a Mac) at the same time to reduce font size.

What web browser are you using?

Er, "which," not "what."

I love the US Weekly story on Jessica - not because of the investigative journalism at evidence... no... but because of how it captures the mindset of the US Weekly reader. Next time you're trying to imagine the mindset of the american electorate/workforce - whether in response to an election fiasco or jobs numbers that look pathetic relative to the rest of the world - keep the 'i need to know jessica has gas' crowd in mind.

Someone sent a tweet to my phone last night
now, I ain't namin' names.
Says he's searching for young Cinnabon
who belongs to Jesse James.
If they ever find old Jesse's dog
they'll be a credit to their species.
They can use the $2000 reward
to pay off their Mitsubishis.

--Appologies to the Z-man.

Very nice work, mdreader.

Your assignment for next week: something based on Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner.

Jay tells Oprah he felt really bad for Conan. Then he got over it.

Susan Boyle has a nickname already. Article calls her SuBo. Took me a few moments to realize it referred to her. Does this seem strange to anyone but me?

To the AP writer of the Lohan article: You write "The actress reportedly is estranged from her father." I think the adverb you were looking for was "understandingly".

Heidi, your procedures were in Nov. Quit blaming the results on swelling, that should have long since resolved. If it hasn't, then you need another doctor.

hodie, did you read that Heidi wants to give her mother plastic surgery as a Mother's Day gift? Cuz nothing says love quite like, "I don't like the way you look."

stopping lurking long enough to say Anne H looks beautiful in that photo...

"Christian hate mail"? Seems like people of true faith would find that a contradiction in terms.

Paps must be really grasping at straws if they're asking Jon Voight about his daughter's relationships, given their historically close and loving relationship. Ahem.

So sad re. Jesse James' lost pup! Hope they find her.

byoolin, you're a genius! I use a PC and your helpful hint saved my WaPo world. Thanks!

mdreader, nicely writ.

I'm afraid I'm not much for snark today but Anne Hathaway does look very pretty in that picture.
