How I'd have enjoyed a Julia Sugarbaker rant on the eruption of publicity-seeking skank-mistresses of famous and/or powerful men! Even with NPR's guidelines, I lack the imagination and talent to script one, but have faith in other posters to provide good material. Please?

RIP Dixie Carter. You were one class act, all the way around.

Saturday night I was watching Buffy reruns with my roommate because she had sat through Lake Placid 2 and knew Mega Piranha was coming. She drew the line at Sea Snakes. During Buffy, a commercial featuring Dixie Carter came on. My friend said that Ms. Carter's cheekbones had always scared her. Later we found out she had died. We think it is possible my friend killed her.

BTW, if anyone wants a review of Mega Piranha featuring Barry Williams as Bob Grady (yep) and Tiffany as a scientist, just ask.

Congratulations to Jim Carrey on his ability to read minds. Please promise to use your powers only for good, Jim.

It says something about Heidi Montag that even that giant rack still isn't the most fake thing about her.

Suggested tombstone for Meinhardt Raabe: "Died aged 94 years, a life too short."

Elizabeth Taylor is now at the age where, statistically, she pretty much HAS to prefer younger men.

"Jon Gosselin "open" to appearing in Kate's new reality show project." Kate, meanwhile, "open" to Jon being burned alive.

"Um, am I the only one who kinda wants a lightsaber nightlight?" Wouldn't that damned humming noise keep you awake all night?

(hard to type while I'm on my knees bowing in the direction of Byoo....)

How about if we agree to ban the phrase "leaky breast implant" from our lexicon forever? All in favor, say ICK NAST!

ep, you're friend's not guiltym because Dixie Carter died Saturday AM. RIP, Julia.

Liz and Jen, can the Post's computer folks please block the sales spams? You know it's really bad when they post soon after your latest installment goes online.

NPR killed Dixie Carter?

Poor Suri. I would want my bottle too.

RIP Meinhardt Raabe. He is not just dead, he is most sincerely dead.

Suggestion for Liz's wedding song: Gold digger.

I nominate Bladerunner for best 80s scifi flick.

Dear Jim Carrey: Shut up. You are no longer relevant, your movies suck, you can't act and no one wants to hear your views on Elin and Tiger. New subject: Suri on the bottle at 4 is really disturbing to me. It's like everything her parents do is upside-down - a child wearing heels, carrying an $800 purse and still using a bottle, very odd.

It looks like some of Jenny McCarthy's crazy rubbed off on Jim Carrey. Pity, I was hoping it'd be the other way around. (And you know you're in trouble when Jim Carrey is the stable one in the relationship.)

Does the lightsaber nightlight (boy, try saying that five times fast) also zap bugs? I could use one on my balcony.

Ice-T, congratulations: you have just won one (1) free Internets (good for one day only!) and my undying regard.

Just a quick aside, do you ever wonder if Ice-T and Ice Cube ever got together, they'd make something cool and refreshing?

Would Daniel Day Lewis drink that milkshake?

While we're takling about Ice T, WTF is an FLGT Memo?

Is there any truth to the rumor that kate Gosselin and Elin Nordegren are coming up with a jewelry line for scorned women called "Eat --it and Die"?

Heidi Montag doesn't need to wear a life jacket while water skiing. She already has her personal flotation devices....unless they leak. Just ask Amy Winehouse.

What did Dixie Carter do to NPR to justify getting whacked?

Liz, enjoy your lightsaber nightlight. I would rather have a Heidi Montag lava lamp. The on and off buttons would be so easy to find in the dark.

RIP Dixie Carter.

Heh, like sas, when I first scanned the post today I read, "Dixie Carter dead at 70, thanks to NPR ... " Whoa! Double take.

Heidi Montag, the next Michael Jackson in regards to freakish plastic surgery, is a total nut. Please may that body be a lesson to others about the body dysmorphic disorder epidemic infecting our nation -- that that freakshow actually perceived as beautiful by some is beyond comprehension.

Jim Carrey, you are a complete idiot. Even if Elin suspected, that doesn't absolve her jacka$$ husband or somehow make her to blame.
