Lilo does something I can applaud. We all need restraining orders vs. Michael Lohan.

30 Rock. The new SNL. Art imitates life imitates art.

Why would anyone want to divorce a former NFL star like Tiki Barbour. Wait...

I've seen the picture of his slu...


Hugh Hefner tries to save anything older than he is.

The only problem with the Quaid item is the word "briefly."

Rock on, Betty White.

Re: Pam Grier. Rudolf Valentino was rumored to keep a sugar bowl of cocaine next to his bed for the same purpose.

Re the mess that is some child stars' lives, here's a quote from Brooke Shields in "Parade" Magazine re how she survived the chaos:

"I grew up without a routine at home, things were hit and miss. But my mother had me in a regular children's school my whole life and that routine calmed me. My school became like my home. I never missed school for work, ever. Sometimes I used to take my organizing a little too far with my Filofax, but that was the way that I coped. I didn't do drugs. I'm just organized."

Why would anyone give the Quaids bail? It's a promise to show up for trial. If you are jailed for failing to show up, it's kinda obvious they won't show up again.

Why, why, why can't I get some of these divorce cases? Proving adulterty would be so easy.

Betty White is the poop. I hope she lives to be 115.

Betty White was bootiful... the black and white clip in that video - I guess I've only seen her older....

IM2 stinks?! I hope they're wrong, but...I weep. (I'll still watch it, but I weep.)

Poor Whitney Houston. I'd hoped she had made it out of her bad period relatively whole, but I guess you don't always get lucky.

Was anyone else not really impressed by "Girl with a Dragon Tattoo"? I started to read it and couldn't finish it, which I almost never do.

LiLo, stop talking. And get some help.
Whitney, stop singing. And get some help.
Amy, stop drinking. And get some help.

How many times must I say this?

"She don't want to come, my soprano friend," Houston crooned. Oh for the love of GOD, Whitney. Stop it. Your soprano friend went away after you invited your crack friend to spend some time with the two of you.

If Michael Lohan is afraid his daughter will be the "next Corey Haim," then who was Corey Haim, the "next Brittany Murphy"?

When "30 Rock" has to have guest appearances in order to get ratings, then NBC seems to be afraid. Then again, since "Will & Grace" went off the air -- about 8 years too late, in my book -- there's been no home for those "Love Boat" / "Diagnosis Murder" stars of yesteryear. So perhaps it was a matter of time.

Of course, as soon as I saw "wildly NSFW", I *had* to click on that story.

If this is a real phenomenon, the first people who come to mind are LiLo and SamRo.

Poor Sandra. Those mistresses just need to leave her alone.

Why doesn't Amy Wine-o just move into the hospital permanently? She spends so much time there ...

OK, I only got to 0:33 in the Betty White video and had to pause it because I'm laughing so hard at my desk. This is GENIUS.
