Louis Gossett Jr. diagnosed with prostate cancer... Celine Dion discusses struggle to have second child... Food Network chef Beau MacMillan arrested on outstanding warrant...

Video from the dept. of living vicariously:

For those of us still snowed in, Jennifer Aniston discusses her 41st birthday bash from sunny Mexico. Yes, it made me curse my own existence, too:

Guest Celebritologist Jen Chaney routinely plans destination birthday parties for herself. I mean, who doesn't?

RIP Captain Phil, fair winds and following seas...

Sometimes God calms the storm and sometimes he calms the sailor....

Ooh, are they going to wire lil Wayne's jaw shut?


I know I can't be the only one who watched the Megan Fox commercial and tried to check out her thumb.

In accordance with his last wishes, Phil Harris was immediately flash-frozen, then later thawed, minced, pressed into rectangles, covered in a tasty batter, refrozen and packaged in a box marked "The Real Gorton's Fisherman."


Meanwhile, Celine's first child talks about his struggle to get to sleep: "When she sing de lullaby, tabernac, les fenêtres - how you say, de windows - Sacre merde, how dey shake!"


"Jennifer Aniston says nice things about Gerard Butler, which surely proves, uh, something." They're not going to acknowledge being an item until they're absolutely sure nobody will call them AnisBut.

Re Phil Harris, lovely tribute, VaLGaL.

Harris died of complications from a stroke he suffered on January 29. Really Bad News of 2010 http://usspost.com/deadliest-catch-captain-dies-usspost-com-5349/

Lil Wayne is probably having his third molars extracted - he's at that age. Way to plan it, too, since nothing says love on the cellblock quite like a legally-acquired stash of Percocet.

Tom Cruise is doing MI4? For the love of Pete, why??? MI3 was unwatchable; I can't believe this will be an improvement.

In the "Gifts from the Marketing Department" department, has anybody else seen the adverts for the new Bruce Willis-Tracy Morgan cop/buddy movie entitled "Cop Out"?

Val. Gal has obviously spent some time under sail. A good nautical blessing.

Cap'n Phil could beat the crap out that pusillanimous Gorton's Fisherman with a cigarette in his mouth and a can of Red Bull on one hand, all the while cussing out Josh and Jake for slacking on the job.

Given Cap'n Phil's diSTINKtive technique for finding crabs

I think that Deadliest Catch should pay tribute to him by having the other Captains toast him with a new cocktail, the Crab Fart.

Megan Fox's narrow brain is a much bigger handicap than her wide thumb.

I'm surprised that Megan Fox has prehensile thumbs. I didn't realize that her species was that advanced.

Talk about planning ahead. Lil Wayne has planned oral surgery so that he can better perform his punk duties on the cellblock.

Was Beau MacMillan arrested for garnishing a restaurant patron's entree with an artistic loogie? More important, where was that warrant standing all that time?

Why was it so difficult for Celine to conceive? Because nothing says "Come 'n get it, Big Boy," like a brandished 9 Iron. Just ask Elin Nodegren.

Angelina begs the paps, "Don't Haiti me because I'm beautiful."

Louis Gosset's prostate promo will probably not encourage men to get examined and tested. I understand that it starts out with Gossett yelling to the camera, "Only two things get a Digital Rectal Exam: steers and queers. Which one are you?"

Conan should have offered to have Triumph the Insult Comic Dog appear in his stead.

Show of hands: how many of you plan to see MI4 in the theater...................

RIP Captain Phil. I just checked the Cornelia Marie website last night and the last update said he was talking to family members.

The Mission this time will be trying to find anyone willing to see the movie.

Beautiful, VaLGaL.

If your heartbreak is so private, Celine, why is it splashed across the cover of People magazine?!? I find myself wondering why she doesn't adopt.

And on the subject of adoption, so a handful of Haitian orphans are the next to be added to the Brangelina menagerie...

Cyndi Lauper, Lady Gaga Put Spotlight on Women and HIV
http://www.palmbeachpost.com/health/cyndi-lauper-lady-gaga-put-spotlight-on-women-225924.html

"...As Lady Gaga noted, women need only take a few simple steps to shield themselves from HIV. 'Use protection, and be selective and strong about those you love,' she said. 'Your body is sacred, and it's OK to say no. Make your partners get tested, go together: it will only make your relationship stronger and healthier.'"
