Poor Dakota Fanning. I shudder to think about photos of things I wore when I was 16 being posted for the world to see. Give the poor kid a break!

Shamu tweets? Wow, those must be some very dexterous fins.

Posted by: jes11 | February 26, 2010 9:19 AM | Report abuse

Next week on 'Sarah Jessica Parker Meets The President,' the Kennedy White House: "SJP, JFK. JFK, SJP. SJP, LBJ. LBJ, SJP. SJP, RFK. RFK, SJP."


"Tiger Woods squashes PETA ad campaign featuring his likeness... " because that sort of thing could really hurt a guy's reputation.


Congrats to Howard Stern for finding an appropriate way to memorialize l'affaire Tiger.


Courtney Love and Lily Allen are the names you'd expect to read on the marquee at the inaugural "Trailer Trash vs. Chav" Ultimate Fighting Championship.


"Despite reports to the contrary, Whitney Houston's rep says tour is going great." It's nice to see that former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer found a new gig.


RT @Shamu: Yeah, I drownded her. My bad. No sardines tonight, I guess.


[Were you as surprised as I am that he said "drownded"?]


"Seth Green announces engagement." The wedding will be shortly, too.


"Ex-wife ordered hit on Jon Cryer." After seeing the only four minutes of 2.5 Men that I've ever seen, I can understand her point.

Is there something about 2 & 1/2 Men that attracts the crazy chicks? (All is does to me is leave with the desire to hit my head against the wall repeatedly)


And to be fair, all Shamu did was retweet right-wing propaganda. (No wait that was Adam Baldwin, I'm mean come on)


Is Dakota Fanning in the middle of what could possibly be the most epic walk of shame ever?

Whitney Houston's rep does a coke-wipe and says tour is going great.

Jessica Parker meets the Obamas. WHOA, Nellie!!!

PETA to Tiger Woods: ....if you can't take a joke. Tiger Woods attorney replies, "BTDT."

Howard Stern will hold a beauty pageant on March 10 featuring four of Tiger Woods’ mistresses. Competition categories will include “Swimsuit”, “Personality”, and “Talent.”' The talent competition will evaluate the ability of each contestant to whip a mannikin while wearing a vinyl bustier and boots with 6-inch heels while growling, "Tiger, you've been a very baad boy. Get on your knees and apologize."


Courtney Love and Lily Allen tangle over who gets to "borrow" Keith Richards' jacket at awards show...

Paris Hilton and Devassa beer? Brazilian health officials are rumored to have analyzed the beer. The results came back that the dog has VD and diabetes. Someone please tell Babelfish that Devassa is now Portugese for "scanque."

Mickey Rourke to play Corian? Perhaps nobody puts baby inn the corner, but they can put Mickey on the counter. Oh, it's spelled "Corin"? never mind....

Dakota Fanning looks soooo trashy. Not in the 1980s sense that she's hot. Rather, in the sense that she scored her wardrobe from a dumpster behind a Bourbon Street night club the moring after Mardi Gras. Hey Dakota, want some beads?

Matt Damon sports a new 'stache..says he's signed a deal for a re-make of Boogie Nights.

Who would I rather be on the communications team for, Whitney Houston or Vicks? Maybe they can join forces to get her throat back in shape, to wit:

"NyQuil: The sniffling, sneezing, stuffy head, fever, coked out, scratchy, croaky, deluded, so you can sing medicine." Hmm. Needs work, I think.

------------
"Brazilian officials want Paris Hilton beer ad off the air" -- Because no one wants to hear "that's hot" when talking about beer.

"Ex-wife ordered hit on Jon Cryer." -- Clearly, it didn't succeed, else the show would be called "Half-Men" between that and the Charlie Sheen rehab thing.

"Matt Damon sports a new 'stache" -- Wow. And I thought I had trouble growing one. I feel his pain and envision those little hairs saying to each other, "c'mon guys, you can grow! unh! you can do it! faster!"

"Sarah Jessica Parker meets the Obamas" -- she should've met a hairbrush on the way first. A barette. Something.

Sas, someone told me "skanque" is properly spelled with a "k." But maybe not in Portuguese.

Let's not snark on Damon's 'stache. It looks new. Let's give it a couple weeks, and THEN snark on it.

Apparently Dakota Fanning hasn't seen any Lilo pics for the last couple years.

Friday love to Andrew Koenig's family. I know the devastation that suicide causes in a family. It is heartbreaking.

The Dakota Fanning picture looks like some kind of art house ad for Coke. The entire picture is so bizarre and Dakota's coloring is so bland, the can red can just pops. I think Coke should run with this opportunity and do an entire series, "Otherwise Classy Celebrities Looking Bizarre Whilst Clutching A Coke." It would make a swell coffee table book.

Posted by: ishkabibbleA | February 26, 2010 10:13 AM | Report abuse

Sorry Dakota, I'm pretty sure those Lilo leggings don't come with a money-back guarantee.

Levi Johnston ordered to pay child support. With what? I'm sure the proceeds from his Playgirl photoshoot and 4 bucks would get her a nice cup of coffee.

Howard Stern organizes beauty pageant for Tiger's women. Can't wait to find out who wins Miss Congeniality.

Sorry reddragon, have to crack on Matt Damon's stache. I'm thinking my 14 yo son can produce a better one than that.

Oh Conan, Remmington Steele and naked in the same sentence had me going there for a minute, then I realized you were talking about yourself.

jaybub, I second the Friday love to the Koenigs. Please send some also to the family of the poor Sea World trainer.

Seriousness aside, I heard that Shamu's last tweet was "Free Chilly".

I will never understand people who have everything in life handed to them committing suicide.

Friday love to the Koenig family. RIP Andrew Koenig.

Howard Stern, I think Peta wants to talk to you.

Brittney Murphy may not have had illegal drugs in her system, but as evidenced by the very next entry doesn't mean she wasn't abusing.

Man, the off-set antics are way more interesting than 2.5 Men itself.

I think the thing that bothers me most about the Dakota outfit is that the purse is larger than the skirt... Somehow that seems wrong.

ep, did you read she supposedly reveals this by whispering his name "BACKWORDS" on another soundtrack? yeah right. I think I'll believe what she said earlier that this was about a composite of people in her life. Makes more sense.

If you have the chance, read William Styron's first person description of his struggle with clinical depression:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darkness_Visible_%28Styron%29

It's almost impossible for anyone who has never been through clinical depression to understand it. For anyone who has experienced clinical depression, the understanding is visceral.

It's just a veritable smorgasboard of trashiness today. TMI, Conan, TMI ... Howard Stern, true to classless form. Ugh.

I've always liked SJP, but am disappointed to see she STILL hasn't found a hairbrush or conditioner. Sigh.

Posted by: Californian11 | February 26, 2010 12:05 PM | Report abuse

Sas, you are 100% right about depression. Depression is physical and biological. Circumstances can exacerbate those who have predilection but is not the cause. The cause is related to chemical imbalance in the brain, I won't bore you with the science.
rexreddy, depression most often has nothing to do with one's priviledges or lack thereof in life. Some of the happiest people on Earth don't have a pot to p--s in. Regardless, rex, I sincerely hope you never do fully understand because that would mean you've been there.

Second. It's also head-bangingly hard to try to help a loved one who's battling clinical depression (or other severe mental illness).

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | February 26, 2010 12:11 PM | Report abuse

And I second what hodie said re mental illness being every bit as biological as any other ailment. I was going to post something along those lines myself, but the doc got there first and said it so much better.

Californian11, I agree except for the "always liked SJP part"...

hodie the 14yo better stache thing was sorta my point. In a couple weeks it'll either look real, or be at the 12yo better stache state.

I was just waiting for the curry-comb comments to start re. SJP ...

Agree, sas, hodie, Nosy. It's impossible for anyone who hasn't been there to really understand what it feels like, and head-bangingly hard to help is correct. It is also head-bangingly hard to pull oneself out of that hole.

Seconding, or thirding, or fiftying all of the comments re dealing with a loved one's mental illness. One of my associates is totally beside herself right now as her 22 yr old daughter is seriously relapsed into anorexia, also a mental disorder, and there's NOTHING anyone can do to help her. And she's lashing out ("you want me dead, don't you?") and the whole thing is just heartbreaking. What's worse, she's a model and what triggered the relapse was being told by a photographer he wouldn't cast her because she was "too fat". (Anyone interested in a hit on that guy? I'm almost not kidding.)

I've met her prior to relapse, and trust me folks, she doesn't have an ounce of spare flesh on her 5'11" frame. In fact, one look at her back then and I knew she'd battled anorexia when she was a teenager--her muscles never developed properly. The whole thing is heartbreaking--I feel like I'm watching someone die.

As it happens, one of my high school friends died of it when I was away at boarding school, so now I'm actually seeing the process.
