Wow, Kelly Osbourne looks completely different. And I would really like to know where she got that Ewok.

I would agree that classy is not the word that comes to mind when I see those Megan Fox ads. Christina Hendricks however oozes class

But I am willing to keep doing some in depth research on the subject.

Heidi Montag posing for Playboy again... This may be the first time when I can honestly say I just read it for the articles.

I love Southwest Airlines.

Apparently the doctors told Keifer that recovery will take about six months but'll only seem like a day.

VaLGaL, this reminds me of some of Kelly's looks during "Dancing With The Stars." And I mean that in the most favorable way.

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden engaged.

Better late than never?

Porn star claims Tiger Woods impregnated her twice.

I remember an era when one went to great lengths to conceal such info. Goodness, I must be getting old.

Hey Queen Liz, care to share your memories of the blizzards with all us poor frozen, snow-encrusted Lizards?

Dorkus, you should have warned us that those Christina Hendricks pics aren't safe for work. Or for any heterosexual male with a heart condition.

How will celebrities learn to cry on camera without Barbara? At least we won't have to watch her dance with John Travolta again. That's a big plus in my book.

Clearly Megan Fox never watched that "Brady Bunch" episode where Marcia (?)had to imagine the audience in their underwear. None of Marcia's teachers looked very "classy" either.

Kevin Smith also admitted (once might say bragged about) breaking a toilet due to his size once. Not exactly the ideal celebrity spokesperson for Lovely and Large.

Just how old was Anthony Hopkins when we created this, er, art? And how bad were the nightmares he was having during the period?

Paris Hilton spent most of her time at Carnival trying to find Kathie Lee Gifford and a ferris wheel.

Team Southwest

Sorry Nosy, but I spent blizzard week in lovely Vieques, Puerto Rico soaking up the sun and hitting the beach.

I promise I was thinking about everyone back here in D.C. the entire time.

Welcome back, Liz Kelly. You might be pleased to know that I first realized yesterday was Washington's Birthday when at about 11 a.m. a little light went on in my little Lizard brain and illuminated a sign that said, "She doesn't do Celebritology on holidays."

"Barbara Walters ending Oscar night special after this year." But don't worry - Elizabeth Hasselbeck's taking over.

Ms. Fox, if you had *any* class whatsoever anywhere in your DNA, you'd know that a lady of class doesn't even say the word "underwear."

Nobody believes that Kevin Smith was really kicked off that Southwest flight for being too fat, do they? I've seen bigger guys on airplanes, but those guys never directed "Gigli."

"Britney Spears and boyfriend celebrate Valentine's Day at McDonald's..." See, Megan: even *this* is more classy than "underwear."

"Heidi Montag posing for Playboy again." And maybe The Dead Kennedys can use one of the photos for a reissue of Plastic Surgery Disasters.

"Porn star claims Tiger Woods impregnated her twice." She's like a bus driver who keeps getting into fender-benders as soon as she's off-duty.

And we spent time thinking about you in sunny PR too, LIz. Grrrr...

Class is not what I think of when I think of Meghan Fox. Of course, then we have Brit and her new leech, I mean boyfriend.

Brooke Mueller entering rehab. Guess the "rest" didn't help. There is something very fishy to this whole mess -- even if we are inclined to assume the worst about Charlie Sheen.

Posted by: epjd | February 16, 2010 10:03 AM | Report abuse

I'm going to have to nominate Charlie Sheen and his train-wreck wife as "least interesting" celebrities. They're simply a mess, but not in an entertaining way. It's too bad they chose to involve innocent babies in their loser-ness.

Posted by: jaybbub | February 16, 2010 10:11 AM | Report abuse

Kevin Smith did not direct "Gigli." Martin Brest did. He did direct "Jersey Girl" which featured Ben Affleck and JLo.

IMDB is your friend, people. Double-check before you snark...

Thanks for the correction, Stella. I should have just stuck with my joke about Kevin flying cargo next time.

Babwa, if you wehe an Oscah, what kind of Oscah would you be?

"Mister Smith, my name is Leo Bloom, and I will not be your flight attendant today because you are FAT! FAT! FAT! FATTY! FAT! FAT!"

Megan Fox looks as classy as it is possible for Megan Fox to look, if you get my meaning.

I thought that Kiefer Sutherland got his surgery on-air, when Renee Walker stabbed Jack Bauer in the stomach. From what I can see, it took him about 30 minutes to completely recover.

If Micky Dee's is good enough for the Olympic Athletes Village, it's good enough for Britney Spears on Valentine's Day. Betcha she's lovin' it!

Jocelyn James sings to Tiger Woods:
"Knock me up two times
Do it twice today
Knock me up two times, Tiger
'fore you go away
One for tomorrow
One just for today
Knock me two times
'fore you go away."

Does the snack bar at Gallery 27 serve liver with fava beans with a nice chianti?

I'm guessing that Heidi Montag needs to re-pose because her implants were recalled. Apparently they were manufactured by Toyota and kept "Moving forward."

And finally, from Byoolin:
"Heidi Montag posing for Playboy again." And maybe The Dead Kennedys can use one of the photos for a reissue of Plastic Surgery Disasters.

Byoo, be glad that it's the Dead Kenndys and not the Butthole Surfers.

Liz, since you can't imbibe, did you bring back for me any good rum?

Posted by: sasquatchbigfoot | February 16, 2010 11:08 AM | Report abuse

I can't believe I'm the first to think of this, 3 words for Kevin Smith, "Carm down fatty".

Was just going to say that Stella.

Ok, who replace Kelly Obsoune with Alice?

In our defence, Jes, Dorkus made us look at those pictures of Christina Hendricks.

As a frequent SWA flyer, I sympathize with Kevin Smith as long as doesn't want sit his sweaty cargo shorts clad a$$ next to me.

I'd suggest he buys business class tickets, but on Southwest that just means you get to board first.

Once again, Sir Anthony has proven just because you own paint & paintbrushes doesn't mean you are an "artist."

td- it was Jan. Jan had joined the debate team and flubbed her first debate and Mike told her to imagine the audience in their underwear, which she did and did great in the next debate. In that same epi, Marcia was taking her driving test and flubbed the test, so on her next try, she imagined the driving test proctor(?) in his underwear...she also beat Greg in a driving competition to prove once and for all that women are better drivers than men.
OOOOooooohhhh K. I am going to have a strong drink now and try to kill the brain cell that knows this.

Me neither, Megan. Such a problem.

Welcome back Liz. Maybe you or someone else could answer this question or maybe bring it up in your next Celebritology blog - - where in the heck is Pax Jolie-Pitt? I have seen many photos of all of the other older children with Angelina and/or Brad, but I find it kind of strange that I haven't seen photos of Pax in a really long time. Case in point - People Magazine today (online) showed a photo of the Jolie-Pitts in Italy and there they both were, walking along the avenue with Shiloh, Zahara, and Maddox. Pax? Nowhere to be seen. They were also shown attending the Super Bowl in Miami with Maddox. Again, no Pax. Brad attended the Saints championship game with Maddox. Again, no Pax. What's up??

Brainless Montag comes off as vapid, incredibly shallow and embarrassingly disingenuous (plastic-surgery obsessed & she wants even more, yet says it's all about what's on the inside?). Dearie, what's on your inside is leading you towards looking like Michael Jackson in the not-too-distant future.

I know Chynna Phillips is married to one of the Baldwins; is it the radical right-wing religious one?

Unprotected sex with a porn star. And the hits just keep on comin' for poor Elin.

Thanks, VaLGaL. I now clearly remember all of this. Clearly.

You forgot to mention the egg on the traffic cone that signaled how close Marcia or Greg got to the correct parking spot (i.e., the egg that Greg subsequently smashed once he choked and floored it).

(And what IS it with those Brady girls anyway? Even the youngest girl had stage fright / public speaking fears: "Baton Rouge, Cindy! Baton Rouge!")

I'll join you in that drink now.
