I might just need to pick up the latest issue of Allure (Yowza!)

Michael Jackson's doctor restricted from administering drug in Texas...Strange because he could've had a lucrative career down at the prison in Huntsville.

I'm not sure Joss Whedon is the best choice for the Avengers. I'm mean on the Avengers they have a red headed witch and a super strong blonde, and I just don't know if he'll know what to do with the characters.

I'm pretty sure I read most of those Choose your Own Adventure books. I'll tell you how they end, you always die.

Ricky Schroder can't be 40. If he's forty that means I'm... Well it just isn't possible & I refuse to entertain it.

Will Elizabeth Berkley's advice book include the nugget about not starring as a stripper in order to change your wholesome image and ruining your future career?

Might be quiet here today with all the guys running out to by the latest copy of Allure.

Heincer gets fourth dog. Isn't there a law against cruelity to animals?

How many times does he have to remind you? It's RICK Schroder. LOL

To Ricky Gervais: That's alot of bangers and mash.

Before the spelling police comeback, I meant to use the word "buy", not "by". Stupid homonyms.

Since we seem to be doing websites today, I wonder if Liz and Jen have seen this one yet:

It's an algorithm that determines whose Twitter followers are dumber: plug in two names (well, Twitter handles) and it'll spit out the results, on a scale of "Smart as a whip" to "Dumb as a bag of hammers." Have fun, all!

It's Catherine Zeta-Jones. Sheesh--hire some editors back, please!

nothgs, I don't like that website, my twitter followers are apparently dumber than DRUNKHULK's followers.

Surely it's a coincidence that Marc Cherry rented the bus that Nicollette's castmates threw her under.

"Elizabeth Berkley penning teen advice book." Page one, paragraph one: "Whatever you do, don't do 'Showgirls.'"

Heidi Montag suing over sexual harassment - don't tell me, let me guess: he said you'd be more attractive if you got a giant fake rack installed and had your face paralyzed?

"Marla Maples and Michael Bolton?" Now there's a name I haven't heard in forever. And Michael Bolton, from "Office Space"? Wow.

Madonna has "no idea what 'Glee' is,"

I can't believe I'm agreeing with Madonna here, but I also have no idea what Glee is. I tried to watch it last night and all I could think of was that my days in show choir were nothing like that.

I kind of wish I had no idea who Madonna is.

I'm going to risk losing my nerd certification and say that I'm kind of "meh" about Joss Whedon directing "Avengers". It may be because I'm kind of "meh" about Whedon anyway, or maybe it's the tendency he has of wrenching out his viewer's hearts and stomping on them. If one of the female leads gets sacrificed for the baw factor, I will be P.O.ed.

Does anyone else have a feeling that "Butter" is going to become either a huge success or (more likely, I'm afraid) a bizarre punchline like "Ishtar"?

I don't think the rest of the cast of "Desperate Housewives" wants to lose their jobs too. What do you expect them to say? They're not going to accuse their present boss of doing anything illegal, least of all to someone who has a lawsuit against him.

Yeah, I'm also with Madonna on the Glee thing. I know it's about high school and a choir. But, that's it. I don't even know what channel it plays on. I suspect a lot of folks are out of the Glee loop.

*Catherine* Zeta-Jones, please. It takes only a second to check stuff like this.

Dorkus, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that your followers say more meaningful things in shorthand - and use language/jargon that the program might not recognize as English - at a much higher rate than do Drunkhulk's. Clearly, that site's a beta.

"I suspect a lot of folks are out of the Glee loop."

Like me. I have no idea what it is. Aside from that, though, I don't think Madonna and I have anything else in common.

Posted by: Californian11 | April 14, 2010 2:24 PM | Report abuse

Oh, she meant Glee the TELEVISION SHOW! I thought she meant Madonna didn't understand the concept of giddy happiness -- which seemed totally likely.

Byoo, I'm guessing that Adam DiVello said to Heidi Montag, "Why pay $10K for some sillycone when I have these luscious organic cataloupes that will work just fine?"

Posted by: sasquatchbigfoot | April 14, 2010 5:22 PM | Report abuse

I thought I'd finally found a redeeming quality in Heincer...then I read the story and discovered they "bought" a new dog, not "adopted." Boo hiss...They really are as clueless as they seem.
