I'd be Ann-Margret and Jaclyn Smith's SVU any day.


And the countdown starts for Kelly Ripa's marriage.


But John Krasinki's entire acting range revolves around his comedic use of his eyebrows. What's going to happen when he wears the mask?

Why oh why did I click on the link to the Octo(batsh*tcrazy)mom's 'The View' appearance? I'm off to my happy place with a gallon of brain bleach.

"Jesus Luz bursts into tears after getting doused with beer"

So it's true, bad beer does make Jesus cry.

I think it is heartless for Susan Boyle's brothers to capitalize on her fame by slandering her to People Magazine. It appears that her millions of adoring fans love her more than her own two brothers. No one likes negative publicity, but it gets easier to take it after you get used to it. There will always be some. You can't please everybody all the time, and some people are just plain hateful. But for her own brothers to diss her is disgraceful. I will never buy another People Magazine as long as I live. I wish them nothing but bankruptcy. I'm outraged.

"Conan O'Brien starts tweeting..." Meanwhile, Jay's twitter feed is just links to places like Engrish.com.


SuBo needs "24-hour care". Hardly surprising - why, the eyebrows alone...


"Andrew Koenig's parents walk out on "Larry King Live" minutes before airtime." The trouble started when Larry popped his head into the Green Room and said to Walter Koenig, "Okay, Mr. Sulu - are you ready to talk about your missing Boner?"


"Kevin Smith calls media coverage of his airline expulsion "pathetic"." You know what's really pathetic, Kev? "Gigli."
(That was for you, Stella117, if you're out there!)


George Lopez to voice Speedy: Great - Speedy used to be just racist; now he's going to be racist and offensive.


I'm glad L&O will finally get to the bottom of who dumped those baked beans all over Ann-Margret.


Physics question: If an Olsen is single, does she have mass?


"Jesus Luz bursts into tears after getting doused with beer..." The phrase you're looking for, Liz Kelly, is "Jesus wept."

byoolin, maybe you grew up on some strange Quebeccian translation of Star Trek, but Walter Koenig played Chekhov. (Or if you prefer to get extremely nerdy, Bester on Babylon 5).

"Matt Damon and Jake Gyllenhaal turned down 'Avatar'" -- Let's face it, 1) James Cameron's dialogue is always cringeworthy, 2) the CGI did more acting than what's-his-name and 3) the role didn't scream, "And the Oscar goes to..."

If Jake turned it down, was Neil Patrick Harris offered first?

"Ann-Margret and Jaclyn Smith sign on for 'Law & Order: SVU' episode" -- Between those two and Mariska Hargitay, that's a whole lotta hot in one place; I hope NBC has fire insurance.

(I now pause to share with you the fact that Jaclyn's character on "Charlie's Angels" was raised in an orphanage. So if her SVU character is called "Kelly Garrett," expect 'Bri and Kris and/or Jill in cameos. Hey, a guy can dream...)

"Andrew Koenig's parents walk out on 'Larry King Live' minutes before airtime" -- They thought they were going on Dateline and were hoping to meet that handsome Stone Phillips instead. Imagine their disappointment.

"Kelly Ripa gets husband's last name tattooed on wrist" -- Thanks to the new Whirlpool tattoo pen, inking a loved one's name on yourself is a snap!

"Mary-Kate Olsen single again" -- How wonderful. Conjoined twins really have it rough. Good for her. Is Ashley OK too?

"Michael Jackson's mother planning fan convention" -- I want the exclusive rights to the wig-on-fire and removable nose concessions.

"Leif Garrett pleads not guilty to drug possession." -- Well of course. That wasn't an illegal substance in that baggie, it was a shredded Betamax copy of his "I Was Made for Dancing" video.

Darn, Kelly Ripa and her husband have been married a long time. I had hopes it would last.

Mary Kate single again. Well, after the Gary Busey news yesterday, I guess I should not be surprised she found someone willing to date her.

Andrew Koenig's parents walk off Larry King Live. Proving that there is a line you don't cross when looking for publicity about a family member. The families of Susan Boyle and Michael Jackson should take note.

Dorkus, the Early Lizard gets the snark! You beat me (and probably several others) to the Kelly Ripa comment. And re "I'd be Ann-Margret and Jaclyn Smith's SVU any day," I misread that as SUV, although that's probably equally true for you.


Family says Susan Boyle needs "24-hour care."

If you read the article carefully, you'll learn that the Boyle brothers' concerns for their younger sister sound reasonable and compassionate, not exploitative. Who wouldn't find all that travel and performing tiring and lonely? Who wouldn't feel anxiety after their long-time home (where they always used to feel so safe) was broken into? SuBo's people have wisely had round-the-clock security implemented at her house for her safety and a modicum of peace-of-mind. She's lucky enough to have a number of friends she can talk to on the phone, and a friend in town at whose home she can even occasionally spend the night. There's really nothing to see here, folks, so just move along...


George Clooney not selling Lake Como villa.

Don't we have a not-news category in which this belongs?


Mary-Kate Olsen single again.

If someone's never been married, then the operative adverb is "still," not "again."

Which is why he'd storm off if Larry called him 'Sulu', see...

Maybe my little joke got scrambled in the transporter buffer.

Byoo, "Gili" wasn't Smith's. He did "Jersey Girl" right after that, though the joke work's just as well box office-wise.

Eric, I made the Gigli mistake in the 2/14 Celebritology and Stella got me, hence the shout-out.

(We've got back story and inside jokes out the wazoo up in here.)

It does seem to indicate a real shortage of Celebritology-style news about Martin Brest, though. Liz Kelly, what's up with THAT hack?

I have too much respect for Liz Kelly to run with that one, Dorkus, but I am sure you'll milk it for all it's worth.

Doesn't Nadya Suleman ROCK those white go-go boots? I think I juast had a Hullaballoo flashback!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hullabaloo_%28TV_series%29

My prime suspect for the perp who beaned Ann Margret is the same guy who Heinz 57'd Roger Daltrey on The Who Sell Out.

I think Byoolin's question whether a single Olsen has mass should be addressed by CERN. However, the answer to this question may be even more elusive than the Higgs Boson.

I wonder if the cock crows thrice in the Passion of Jesus according to Byoolin.

Dorkus, as I recall, Gene Weingarten tricked Liz into revealing that she is rather gifted in that regard, and that was before her pregnancy. There can be too much of a good thing...

George Clooney cannot sell the Lake Como villa because his face is attached to it.

The reason why the Koenigs ran out on Larry King is obvious. It's the same reason why King's wives left him. King is renowned as The World's Largest Source of Natural Gas. Hmmmmm.......beans dumped on Ann Margret, beans in Roger Daltrey's bath tub......

I would say no she does not. She's pregnant and Mother Nature will take care of that.


Ok, one last comment on Octomom and then can It just go away? It is regretable that Octomom's IVF specialist didn't see (or more likely didn't care) what the rest of us have noticed from the get go. She ain't all there.

I would sue too if I were that Florida woman. And I would demand way more than 50cent.

Wonder if Ashley and Mary Kate played the old switcheroo one too many times on the guy. Hodie2 and I loved to do that when we were young.

Turn the other cheek, Jesus.

How far will Jacko's family go to milk every last drop out of him?

With "friends" like Susan Boyle's, who needs enemies? If her family is so "concerned", they need to address it with her privately, not slander her in People.

Laughing is the least of Clown Car Vagina's wackiness. I saw an article yesterday that she wants more kids "if she gets married". God help us.

Sas, not THAT far, of course. Occasionally fooled a teacher, but never anyone who really knew us.
In college (we went to the same one)people I never met would always come up and talk to me. I assumed they were her friends and just played along or at least let them know I was not her. She on the other hand, when it happened to her, would stare at them blankly and walk away. My friends thought I was nuts until they knew I had a double.

Posted by: hodie | February 25, 2010 1:23 PM | Report abuse

Californian, I didn't interpret the article as Susan Boyle's brothers as defaming her, but rather expressing concern for her well-being, and trying to convey this to the public (message: lay off SuBo in her private life). However commenter KateSaunders above scares the daylights out of me on Boyle's behalf; didn't Mark David Chapman "love" John Lennon better than he thought others could?

Byoo' don't worry about 71,000 people ahead of you on the Passion slash wagon. It's quality of product. I have faith in you.............

Is it blasphemy to mention faith in the same paragraph with Biblical slash fiction?
