Death threats? Really? Wow. She must be an *extremely* poor dancer.

Lola Vie? It's the smell of lost love, desperation, loneliness and more money than you can shake a stick at.

"Michelle McGee to ref boxing match between Hailey Glassman (Jon Gosselin's ex) and some porn star." It says something that only the porn star had the good sense/luck to keep her name out of this item.

Yike, the Olsens look like a two-headed bat in that photo. My eyes...

News Flash: Suri Cruise in age and weather appropriate clothing!

Without your help, the Suri Cruise foundation never would have been able to raise enough money to put a jacket and tights on this poor little girl...

Olivia Newton John's ex found: Said he to the investigator, "Please, mister, please..."

Death threats? Is Buzz Aldrin really getting that desperate?

Tia Carrere files for divorce...Shwing!

is the "Tron: Legacy" viral marketing campaign working?...I'll say. It's taking off like a light-bike.

Jennifer Aniston's perfume -- coming soon to a store near you -- to be called "Lola Vie."

Or, "Lo, la vie," as in she's looking on at life rather than living it?

Ursula Andress voted top movie siren.

For younger Lizards, she was the original Bond Girl, and perhaps the first public cougar, with a young Harry Hamlin (now Mr. Lisa Rinna) as her baby-daddy.

First, hope all our West Coast Lizards came through the earthquake okay.

An earthquake hitting during Clash of the Titans tells you God's opinion of the movie. And it is still better than one hitting during the bar exam as happened in July 2008.

Yeah, the "he killed himself" defense works just about as well as the "everyone is lying but me" defense. Did this guy go to Geragos school of defense theories. Note, Geragos can't represent Murray because he once represented Jacko.

ep, I guess we can just thank our lucky stars that none of the Kartrashians became lawyers.

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | April 5, 2010 10:51 AM | Report abuse

There is a test to get into law school. I doubt the Kartrashians could do well enough on the LSAT, let alone survive law school and then pass the bar. I never thought I would be so grateful for the selective process.

Ursula I get, but the runners up? Carrie Fisher? And women thought Julie Andrews was a siren in Mary Poppins? Well, she did fly, and the original sirens were bird-women, but still...

And women thought Julie Andrews was a siren in Mary Poppins?

I'd be more concerned about those who thought she was a siren in "Sound of Music."

Unfortunately, the late Papa Kartrashian, who not only sired some of these offspring but also put their family name in the news for harboring OJ Simpson and hiding the bloody evidence, was a lawyer. :-(

Those Trollsen twins sure are a strange little pair, aren't they.

Yeah the Mary Poppins and Sound of Music threw me, until I realized in typical female fashion (yes I am one) we picked women we believe are less attractive than us so that we can some how see our selves further up on the list.

"Well Mary Poppins was # 3 and I am so much hotter than her - I'm like one of the hottest women EVER!"

Californian, did you feel the 7.2 quake? Assume you're safe, otherwise you might not be blogging, right?

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | April 5, 2010 1:55 PM | Report abuse

Thanks, Nosy! Sure did, we were rockin' and rollin' here yesterday between the quakes and the aftershocks. And there was a sizeable one again this morning at 4 a.m. We are all safe ... hardly any damage in the county aside from some broken water mains, cracks in buildings, etc.

why is katie holmes wearing her bathrobe in those pictures?

And why is Suri wearing Amy Winehouse's gross old slippers?

Posted by: Californian11 | April 5, 2010 2:39 PM | Report abuse

Hey Cali, glad you're okay. We got rocked too and we're not as close as you are. Weirdest earthquake I've ever been in--myself and everyone around here I've asked got the strangest vertigo about half way in. Never happened before. I still felt a bit weird and dizzy for awhile.

Better to have been in a movie theater than those devout souls who were in the middle of easter mass at the cathedral with all those chandeliers swaying overhead. Yikes.

Isn't it time for the whack jobs to leave Erin Andrews alone? Geez, that girl needs a break.

Posted by: sorcerers_cat | April 5, 2010 5:01 PM | Report abuse

You too, cat. Funny -- we're all saying the same thing, and it's been true for the aftershocks as well. Feels like vertigo & dizzy spells.

Another place I'd hate to be in an earthquake: Home Depot.
