Chelsea Handler vs. Michelle "Bombshell" McGee: my money would be on the Aryan chic, but my hope would be on the collapse of the arena on top of them.


Miley Cyrus's new album will have a Lady Gaga-esque techno vibe and a Billy Ray-esque fetid stench.


Of course Joan Collins would think Twitter boring: *everything* would be boring once you've wrestled Linda Evans in a swimming pool.


The Bad News is, Charlie Sheen is leaving "Two and a Half Men." The Good News is, each episode will still contain Two and a Half Laughs."* (*Selected episodes only.)


In a Hollywood that is turning the board game "Battleship" into a movie, Will Smith in a "Citizen Kane" remake isn't an April Fool's joke, it's our last best hope for redemption.


Wasn't 'thirdnipple' what everyone called Brian Dunkelman when he co-hosted the first season of AI with Ryan Seacrest?

Tiger and his kindergarten teacher? The dude started early I see. Did he write her a note in crayon saying wanted to wear her a$$ as a hat?


What is a Sebastian Stan?


Robin, everyone knows the Australians aren't British rednecks. You were thinking about the New Zealanders (or possibly the french canadians).


ScarJo posters? Ahh Liz, it's not even my birthday. (But it is coming up so you should be thinking about what to get me).

Does Conrad Murray really think that anyone would actually want him for their doctor?

No... French Canadians are French Rednecks.

"innocuous, flat and political in only the most coded of ways."

Sounds like a review of Palin, herself, never mind the show.

God knows I'm no fan of Heather Mills, but really? She has to justify NOT giving someone money for a boob job? I'm never going to understand the British legal system.

Ahhh, Jon Lovitz. I love the subtle eyeroll. Formally requesting that someone Photoshop the devil suit from the "Church Lady" skits onto him.

There's so much easy pickin's today! But I don't have the energy, so I'll just send my Friday love to those poor Charlie Sheen offspring. God knows they'll need it.

Who would interview Pete Doherty? What does he possibly have to say that could be of interest, and the guy is known for shooting up then shooting the syringe contents at reporters. Beer's tame compared to that.

When oh when will Gloria Allred and Sarah Palin's 15 min. be up.

How could LiLo NOT be broke, is my question.

Good Lord! As noted above, the British justice system is not straightforward, but in most jurisdictions in America, that's felony assault, even against reporters. You might be able to talk it down to a misdemeanor if you can prove that you don't have anything contagious, but somehow I doubt Pete Doherty's in that group.

RIP, John Forsythe. Besides his most famous roles, did anyone else adore him as the Reagan-esque Senator Powers in "The Powers That Be"?
