re: Transformers 3 - Patrick Dempsey and Jamie Kennedy? Kinda scraping the bottom of the barrel there, aren't we?

That "justin bieber" thing is just ridiculous. Both the person and the hype surrounding him.

Excuse me, in what universe is it "next to nothing" to walk away from 3 odd years of marriage with the estimated $3.5 million noted in the article? And that's WITHOUT child support payments for their twins.

Granted, you may not be able to live in baronial Hollywood splendor with that type of money, but well invested, on the interest alone, Brooke Mueller would be set for life. Because Charlie still has to pay for the kids.

I can't weep for her. I know he's worth a lot of money, but he was worth it before they even met. It's like John Cleese's divorce settlement. Because you can't tell me some of these women don't date these notoriously divorced Hollywood stars because the LOVE them so much. I'm not even a huge fan of Charlie Sheen and I'm saying "good for him."

Cool, the guy who played Bobby Ewing is going to be in Transformers 3. Wait, what? Who? Oh for crying out loud!


kblock, are you crying because Pam Anderson was cut from DWTS last night?


Someone should tell Justin Beiber that we do say German in America, of course him being canadian, he may not understand that.

(byoolin, does Justin Beiber count as one of those canadian celebrities you are always asking about?)


Lindsey and Dina are just proving the old adage of the family that parties until 2 am together, loses conservatorship to Michael Lohan who comes off as the more responsible parent.

"Canadian celebrity is up there with "Pennsylvania bachelor pad" and "fully loaded Hyundai."

I always suspected that Scarlett Johansson and Catherine Zeta-Jones were thespians.

"Pam Anderson cut from 'Dancing with the Stars'" -- Whew. Close one. I was afraid there'd be mayhem and foolishness because our "Clean House" diva was going to be next. TEAM NIECY!

"William Shatner has made $600 million from Priceline gig" -- But at Orbitz, he'd only make $300 million. That Travelocity gnome must be loaded too.

"Picasso painting sells for $106.5 million." -- It's called Suitcases of Cash Descending a Staircase.

"Alleged Madonna journals pulled from eBay" -- How boring would those be? It'd all be variations on the following:

Dear Diary: Today I worked out until the veins in my arms bulged unhealthily. Then I checked my roots in the mirror. Told Lourdes that she shouldn't dress so provocatively. Rocco rolled his eyes at me. Poor Rocco; he just watched "Truth or Dare" for the first time and now refuses to drink out of water bottles.

Spent two hours brainstorming ways to still seem sexy and relevant. Drank some water and had a salad. Back to the mirror; I have to get those roots taken care of. Oh heck with it; I'll let 'em go and start another worldwide trend.

Phone interview with reporter doing Retro 80s article. (Am tired of revisiting "Like a Virgin" I mean come on it's been 25 years. Move on people.)

Worked out again. Fed the kids. Watched "Shanghai Surprise." (Boy was I bad in that movie. No wonder Sean and I split up.) Read tabloid article about Guy wanting my money. (They got EVERYTHING wrong. Stupid Daily Mail!)

Texted Jesus a dozen times. Worked out. WebEx with U.N. about aid to Malawi. (Bono ain't the only singer with clout!) Set alarm for 6:30. Shower and bed.

Rachel Uchitel plans press conference to deny allegations that she attempted to extort $6 million from Boreanaz.

Because $10 million in Tiger hush money wasn't enough?

I don't watch DWTS, so thanks, JeLi, for keeping me abreast of what's been going on with Pammy.


Bones Boreanaz's mistresses are like serial killers? Ma never did like that Aileen Wuornos girl.


How William Shatner made $600 million from Priceline gig: a $2 commission on every hotel room rental.


If they'd let td write those Madonna journals, they'd have sold by now. (Imagine what he could have done with the Hitler Diaries!)


CONTESTANT: I'll take High School Guidance Counsellor for $400, please, Alex.
ALEX TREBEK: Bieber needs to spend more time in school and less on stage.
CONTESTANT: What is "advice you would give a teenage stripper," Alex?


CONTESTANT: I'll take At The Movies for $200, please, Alex.
ALEX TREBEK: Patrick Dempsey and Jamie Kennedy cast in "Transformers 3"...
CONTESTANT: What is "ways in which it could be worse," Alex?


Justin Bieber is a Canadian Celebrity in exactly the same way that Celine Dion is one and that The Shat and Alex Trebek are not.

byoolin, is Pammy a Canadian celeb? Does becoming a naturalized US citizen (like Pammy, and Michael J. Fox, e.g.) make a difference in your book?

I am amazed at how many people still die from pneumonia and the flu.

Y'know, any woman who actually responds to that inane pickup line of Tiger Woods' doesn't deserve a penny.

Dorkus, the ousting of Ms. Anderson did cause me to shed a tear, because a potential Pamela sighting was the only thing that kept my husband's finger off the remote during DWTS. But sob? No no.

Anyone who ever thought of Tiger Woods as a role model probably tries to put on a condom with their shoes.

Gloria Allred's title is See you next Tuesday.

Posted by: sasquatchbigfoot | May 5, 2010 4:37 PM | Report abuse

Gloria Allred used to be a respected feminist attorney, defending women's rights. Sad that she has stooped so low, professionally.

Did the Lizards catch the scathing that Rielle received on today's Reliable Sources live online chat over her krazar performance on Oprah? As someone observed elsewhere, Oprah played it low-key (even when she probably would've loved to have rolled her yes), just reeling out more and more rope, which Rielle reeled right in to hang herself.

Obviously Tiger Woods mother did not beat often or hard enough.

Sas, are you alluding to Earl's philandering?
