Bad News: IRS hits Jeff Bridges with $24,000 tax lien. Good News: His rug, which really brings the room together, is still nice and dry.

"Elton John turned down $33 million "Idol" offer." So you're telling me that H'wood's "most powerful host" AND thirty-three million dollars couldn't get Elton John on a stage? Seems suprisingly un-powerful to me.

Pixar cancels plans to make movie "Newt," announces plan to replace it with "Boehner." That adorable little orange-faced monster will be in theatres in time for Christmas.

Poor Rachel Sutherland, she looks like Kiefer in drag.

Yep, that's definitely Keifer's twin in that picture....

Strangely, I was expecting Jessica Simpson's summer reading list to have more Dr. Seuss in it. Although, 'Oh The Things You Can Think If Only you Try' does tend to be for the more advanced readers.

So apparently we know what Anne Hathaway's type of man is.

I am shocked, shocked I say, that Gladiator 2: Electric Bugaloo is getting panned by critics.

While I do enjoy seeing Danica McKellar in that Maxim spread, she's much hotter knowing that she has a mathematical theorem named for her. I'm such a dork.

So much for Evangeline Lilly saying she's not going to act any more ....

Posted by: susanmccullough1 | May 13, 2010 10:02 AM | Report abuse

For some reason, my comments were censored. Go figure.

Anyway, I also thought the Cat in the Hat series was on Jessica's summer reading list.

Ryan Seacrest most powerful host? Are we talking about his breath?

Spencer Pratt enlists marine to help pen screen play. It's about a megalomaniac little pratt that builds an army of babe-bots that can kill with their "shoes".

Liz, didn't Evangeline Lily promise to give up acting after LOST?

Can't believe I watched that staple-art video with the Yakety Sax music. Meanwhile my work piles up....

Isn't this the second time that Matt Lauer has moved out of the family apartment due to infidelity on his part? I seem to recall a scandal about six years ago or so alleging he had stepped out on his wife with an NBC employee while he was filming "Where in the World is Matt Lauer". Actually now that I think about it, we know where he ISN'T right now.

In what has to be a first, an author promoting a new math book gets a Maxim spread. Geek power!

Spencer Pratt has rage issue? Shocking! And what exactly were those crystals, methamphetamine?

Ryan Seacrest edges Leno in powerful TV-host poll. But Leno still leads the voting in the Un-Funniest Funnyman category, so all is still right in his world.

Interesting that kicking a paparazzo is vandalism, not assault.

Posted by: northgs | May 13, 2010 10:36 AM | Report abuse

You see now, I always interpreted Evangeline Lilly's 'give up on acting' to mean that she finally acknowledged that no matter how hard she tried she was never going to learn how to act.

IRS hits Jeff Bridges with $24,000 tax lien

With an Oscar-winning performance under his belt, I assume his income has increased sufficiently to pay off the lien.

Spencer Pratt has rage issues, spent $40,000 on crystals.

Guy's dumb enough, next thing we know he'll be joining $cientology.

Most powerful TV host? I'd have picked Tom Bergeron (DWTS, AFHV) or Alex Trebek (Jeopardy! Natl. Geographic geography bee). Then again, I don't find Danica McKellar (or her fans) dorky.

byoolin, assuming the Bruins make it through to the next round, is the mojo still with the Habs?

Jessica Simpson... shares her summer reading list.

Among the books is "The Best Kind of Different: Our Family's Journey with Asperger's Syndrome," by Shonda & Curt Schilling. At least Jess isn't reading Jenny McCarthy's garbage on autism. (I assumed that Jim Carrey left her because he got fed up with her obsessiveness on the topic as well).

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | May 13, 2010 10:53 AM | Report abuse

Danica McKellar in Maxim. Kevin Arnold's angel is a centerfold. At least the rest of us are happy.

Nosy, the idea that Carrey would leave because of SOMEONE ELSE's obsesiveness caused a virtual sploot.

I nom papparazzi kicking for an Olympic Sport.

reddragon, perhaps Carrey and McCarthy deserved one another.

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | May 13, 2010 11:35 AM | Report abuse

And now for some bad math jokes about Danica McKellar:

I'd use Riemann summation on her so we could formally integrate.

I'd solve her second derivative to find her point of inflection.

I'd let her pivot her matrix on me.

I'd like to find the eccentricity of her conic sections.

NP & Byoo-

I heard on the radio this morning that Montreal was referred to as the "Habs" and Pittsburgh as the "Hab-nots".....(we have had a hard time watching since our caps were taken out a few weeks ago.)

and for the Tiger update:

"needs massages" says it all.....

Posted by: anonymouslurker | May 13, 2010 11:52 AM | Report abuse

anonymouslurker, Tiger seems to have a lot of needs.

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | May 13, 2010 12:08 PM | Report abuse


Since you didn't cap "Caps" I for one thought you were referring to a keyboard prob...

That's Vin Diesel's Twin? No way.

Posted by: Guest1234 | May 13, 2010 12:37 PM | Report abuse

Mojo is definitely with les Glorieux - they have a hot goalie, they will have had a couple of days of extra rest, and the Bruins & Flyers have been beating the bejeebers out of each other. Whoever wins that series is going to be in a lot more pain than Montreal is.

That said, nobody is going to send the NHL a note that says, "byoolin's right. Might as well give Montreal the conference trophy now."

As for my Pittsburgh friends, say bye to the Igloo. Now yinz can go back to figurin' aht what the Stillers should do when Ben comes back from bein' a rapist 'n'at.

Here's a Facebook site for people who have had enough of Penguins No. 87:

Byoolin, it's up to you to send the note to Gary Bettman. Or, you can take the Red Rocket down to Union or King and drop off the note at the Hall of Fame. For your own safety, best not to wear a Habitants jersey. You can never tell what the Leafs Nation might do to you.

Sas, Sarah Palin'll get you for that one.
