JeLi, you might want to talk to the Post's IT people: they can probably set up your computers to spit out "Lindsay Lohan gets into screaming match with" whenever you hit the F12 key.

"Kim Kardashian sprays Windex on her food so she won't eat it?" How on earth does that work? Windex is delicious!

Jeremy Piven staring at JSimp's butt: it was either that or watch her "act."

How much way better, Shia LaBeouf? Because JSimp's butt it still just right there.

Related to the Piven item AND to the photos, on the interwebs there are other photos of the Film Festival, especially a very glam one of Eva Longoria Parker looking over her shoulder at the camera. And her dress isn't bad, either.

There are also some backshots of a European actress from "Zombie Women of Satan" in a transparent costume that leaves her prackilly nekkid.

We are so glad that this film festival exists so the actresses can show off their Cannes.

I believe Sas can confirm the URL:

As an old guy who is computer-literacy challenged, it's also on AOL. If anyone else remembers that...

Also, the group includes a frontal shot of Michelle Rodriguez. But I am probably the only one who cares.

I'm confused - didn't Rachel Whatsherface deny being involved with David Boreanaz? I can't keep up anymore.

And man, all I can think of with her is "Intolerable Cruelty", except she's just using blackmail instead of divorce to reap money from these rich men. I'm sure her mother is just so proud.

Chasmosaur, Rachel Whatsherfanny said DB wasn't "a part of her life now." Apparently we're past that moment.

Highlights from the "Twilight" edition of Oprah - as in, she's finally riding off into the sunset? Please?

Billy Ray wins the Ick Nast award for the week, I see. Many more of these and the guy's going to have to talk to the Yankees about how to display so many trophies to best effect.

Speaking of the Yankees, Kate and Cameron, surely you could find something more interesting to fight over?

Reddragon, no, you are not the only one who cares about Michelle Rodriguez. Thank you.

Correction: the prackily nekkid actress is "Mimi le Meaux" (I did NOT make that up) of the movie "Tournee."

In other news, it's a Hobsons choice for poor A-rod.

I'm on board with the Lilo macro. Or maybe we could just add a term to the Lizard Island Dic to signify Lilo Still Out of Control.

NBC finally realized Jerry Orbach died.

Naomi Watts should make an OK Marilyn. I think of her as kind of a lightweight, but they should be able to leverage that.

Why doesn't Billy Ray officially change his name to "Billy Ray Ew."

I am so deep in mourning about Law & Order that I can't even snark about Billy Ray Cyrus, except to say Ick. Nast.

Friday love to me and all L&O-ers who will be facing a bleak, bleak future.

You know what, now that there is video of Bruce Springsteen and Lady Gaga singing Don't Stop Believing with Sting, Elton John, Shirley Bassie and Blondie, not even Billy Ray Slime-us can bring me down.

dkp, any idea where that video was taken?

northgs, they were saving the rainforests--it was performed at The Rainforest Foundation's benefit at Carnegie Hall last night.

If I were the sound editor for L&O, on the last scene in the last show, I would replace the trademark "Chuuk-chunnk" sound effect with that of a toilet being flushed.

Why are Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz fighting over A-Rod? It's not like either one could score with him. The further they could get would be third base.

jaybbub, I'm sad re the impending loss of the L&O mothership. Love me some Sam Watterston.

Nosy, try watching TD Ameritrade commercials.

Sas, Sam's one of those actors who could just read the phonebook, but that doesn't mean I'm willing to settle. I'm still mourning the departure of "I'll Fly Away."

Thank you for this bit of laughter (not to mention the bits of orange slice I spewed all over my keyboard) on this very sad, sad day. On the other hand, I've been in semi-mourning since the departure of Jesse L. Green, so this is more like the loss of a loved one who's been seriously ill than it is the striking down of a loved one in the prime of health.

-Snarky Squirrel, who can't decide if she's more bored with Heidi's face or Jessica's behind.

Just found out one of my co-workers has NOT ever seen "The Princess Bride". The mind boggles. Had to share such momentous news!

sorcerers_cat, I have a little confession to make...
