Tuesday

Corey Haim's family still seeking help from fans to pay for funeral... Miley Cyrus to mentor "Idol" singers... Courtney Love accidentally posts cell phone number on Facebook... Jane Fonda to host first-ever World Fitness Day... Ben Affleck launches new foundation to aid eastern Congo... Jenny McCarthy penning cheating book.

Crime Watch: Doctor Conrad Murray interrupted CPR to Michael Jackson and delayed calling paramedics to hide drugs, says witness. Murray's attorney, Edward Chernoff, says the statement is inconsistent with "physical evidence found at the scene."

Bullock planning to divorce Jesse James, says "friend"... Amy Winehouse headed back to rehab?... Elin Nordegren not happy with Tiger Woods; just sticking around for the kids... Mariah Carey cancels album release.

Pop Culture Mix: In what sounds like it should be an Onion item but totally isn't, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand and Ken Jeong join cast of "Transformers 3," proving they clearly never saw "Transformers 2"... "Popeye" to covet spinach in 3D... "Tron" monorail hits the tracks at Disney World... Rumors about Olivia Wilde and Freida Pinto appearing in "Bond 23" seem to be debunked... L.A. Times asks, will audiences ever want to see "Twilight" stars do anything else?... New York Times looks at upcoming James L. Brooks movie starring Reese Witherspoon, which now finally has a title: "How Do You Know"... Awkward Family Photos shows us the finalists in its "Hot Tub Time Machine"-sponsored awkward '80s photos contest; hope you like bad perms!

On DVD today: For the first time ever (which is hard to believe), "The African Queen" arrives on DVD and Blu-ray today; also releasing: "The Blind Side," "Fantastic Mr. Fox," "Red Cliff," and "Mad Men: Season 3."

Comments

"Jane Fonda to host first-ever World Fitness Day" -- I'm seeing a big exhibit hall with copies of her videos on one side and Botox vendors on the other. Oh, and lots of stand-up cardboard Barbarellas, y'know, sumpin' for the guys.

"Courtney Love accidentally posts cell phone number on Facebook" -- Stuff like this just BEGS for that elusive-yet-coveted Dislike button. She's useless.

"Miley Cyrus to mentor 'Idol' singers" -- Are they posing for Annie Lebowitz?

"Jenny McCarthy penning cheating book." -- You lost me at "Jenny McCarthy penning".

"Mariah Carey cancels album release." -- It wasn't up to the same quality as "Butterfly." The girl has standards.

Who are Olivia Wilde and Freida Pinto? Are they friends with Jason Wahler?

Elin not happy with Tiger? Well, DUH. How is this news? It's been just a few months, I imagine that will take a looonnng time until there's some healing, trust and happiness back in that marriage.

Yo, Sandy, I know things are tough for you personally right now, but you gotta step up or this "Blind Guy" movie you're in is gonna sink without a trace.


"Heather Locklear's 12-year-old daughter makes runway debut." Thereby proving the old adage that you can't live forever off TJ Hooker residuals.


"Miley Cyrus to mentor "Idol" singers." And Runners-up will be mentored by Billy Ray.


"Courtney Love accidentally posts cell phone number on Facebook." She'd MEANT to post it on JesusH.Chr*stI'mAMessBook.


If the promoters play their cards right, World Fitness Day will get the biggest tv audience *ever*.


MJ's Dr. Murray makes 30 Rock's Dr. Spaceman look like Marcus Welby, M.D. (Kids, you can look it up in Wikipedia.)

Here's hoping Dr. Murray's attorney, Edward Chernoff, is a better lawyer than his client is a doctor.


"Bullock planning to divorce Jesse James" - good, ten maybe she can get back to promoting this "Blind Spy" movie that's sinking without her attention.


Amy Winehouse STILL does not want to go, no, no, no.


"L.A. Times asks, will audiences ever want to see "Twilight" stars do anything else?" What do they mean, "else"?


See, Sandy, while you've been doing your Norma Desmond thing, someone went and released a video called "The Blind Side," which is really close to the title of your thing. Now *nobody* will see your "Bland Salad" movie. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Irony alert! The article on Jenny McCarthy's new book refers to it as a "study" and uses the word "research" in connection with her solicitation of infidelity stories via Twitter. I wonder, has she filed an IRB?

LA Times wants to know if we'll ever want to see the "Twilight" stars do anything else? Ummm, no, but I probably mean that differently than they do.

Can we please move the Mariah news out of the Rumor Mill? Pretty please?

The Bullock-James trainwreck is growing by leaps and bounds - no wonder she pulled out of a foreign premiere for very American film.

Ben Affleck, good on ya.

======================

As someone currently prepping for three upcoming studies (including hours of ethics training!) all I can do right now is issue a bitter, echoing laugh. This combined with the vaccine thing (okay, mostly the vaccine thing) makes me regret ever watching "Singled Out" as a youth.


And that "Transformers" news really should be an "Onion" item. I wonder if Michael Bay is planning on reanimating Orson Welles next.

John Malkovich and Frances McDormand clearly have either balloon payments or college tuitions due, and Ken Jeong (who?) is basking in the glow of being mentioned in the same breath as an Oscar nominee and winner.

Senor Chang in Transformers 3? Still not as bad of an idea as a Transformer with testicles.


Miley Cyrus to mentor "Idol" singers...It's part of her series titled "How To Get The Most Out Of Being A No Talent Packaged Hack."


L.A. Times asks, will audiences ever want to see "Twilight" stars do anything else?...Of course the first question they should've asked is whether we wanted to see the Twilight stars do anything at all.

And Nosy, thanks for the article yesterday. Um, I tend to break 4 of those rules, which might explain somethings. (And today's game will be to figure out what 4 items I am guilty of).

I've ordered a The John Yoo "Tell Me What I Want To Hear" Waterboard Kit off Amazon. As soon as it arrives we'll set it up behind the bar and get to work.

"John Malkovich, Frances McDormand and Ken Jeong join cast of "Transformers 3," proving they clearly never saw "Transformers 2"..."

Or the first Transformers or any Michael Bay movie for that matter...

td, Freida Pinto was the female lead in Slumdog Millionaire.

Dorkus, I'm guessing walking shoes and knee socks, ordering salad, college ring and texting with abbreviations. How many did I get correct? Or are you growing a mustache?

As I mentioned late yesterday, Mr. P wears his college ring proudly (on right-hand ring finger; wedding band on left). He also wears walking shoes with knee socks, which is preferable to suffering sock-gap when seated (assumes long pants; with shorts not so good, except for members of the Bermuda Olympic team).

What that article about Transformers 3 doesn't mention is that John Malkovich and Frances McDormand are taking over the role of Megan Fox's cleavage. Malkovich is rumored to be the favorite for "lefty."

She also does a cosmetics ad.

Well Nosy you got two of them. I do tend to wear my class ring and order salads, although here in Austin I believe both of those are more socially acceptable than elsewhere in the country.

311 items that make someone undateable? Wow. My only criteria is "please don't be a (glass bowl)". (Although I have to agree with the universal Speedo ban.)

Posted by: Bawlmer51 | March 23, 2010 11:29 AM | Report abuse

Hey, it takes a real man to order a salad. Gotta stave off scurvy somehow, right?

Upcoming headline

Jenny McCarthy Cheating Book Accused of Plagiarizing National Enquirer


--------------------------------------------
Byoo' what's your admission charge for waterboarding spectators?

"What Makes Dorkus Undateable?" is the modern version of Clue.

Hmmmmm.......

Speedo-wearing, tween texter with a filthy backward baseball cap who wants women to meet Mr. Chest.

Ah Dorkus I was thinking more like:

speedo wearing Dorkus bedecked in mandals with knee socks and a p*rn 'stash.

Posted by: LTL1 | March 23, 2010 11:40 AM | Report abuse

Wow, the mental image you guys have of me is quite scary.

In my defense I've probably only worn the speedo maybe 5 times.

Jenny McCarthy penning a book on cheating. A How To?

Corey Haim's family please meet Brittany Murphy's ex-husband. Now go away.

I don't think Courtney Love accidently posted her cell phone number. She did it to ensure her child can call her. You know, if the kid should suddenly want to.

"White Trash Beautiful" clothing line? God help us!!!

I'm thinking the Amy Wine-o and Elin Nordegren items should be in 'Not News'...

Sock gap ... LOL Nosy!
