Michael Jackson estate has made $1 billion since star's death a year ago.

Good career move.


Madonna adding a floor to her New York townhouse to house private gym.

Because she apparently doesn't get enough exercise already.


Heincer's male half: "This is the day my earth dad wishes he had worn a condom."

He's not the only one. (Though what's this about a non-earth father?)

"Michael Jackson estate has made $1 billion since star's death a year ago." Proving not only the truth of the saying about death and taxes, but also nailing the order in which they occur.


Yes, let's reopen the Anna Nicole Smith case: and this time make the kid testify.


See, this is what I love about America: put Larry King and Justin Bieber on tv and you can convince people to donate a million bucks to help out an oil company with the expenses for a disaster it caused.


Tori, honey, you're so, so, SO wrong. It's not just Ex-"90210" stars who hate you. (Dean, f'r'instance.)


"Lindsay Lohan (and SCRAM bracelet?) to pose nude..." How is this woman not a member of the cast of Jersey Shore?


"Patton Oswalt joins cast of 'A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas'" - just to make sure nobody steals his jokes.


"Can I get the Google Pac-Man interface tattooed on me?" It might be just me, but when I play that sentence in my head, it sounds *filthy*. Thanks, JeLi.


Spencer, can we assume that Mother's Day is the day your mom wished she hadn't drank so heavily in her second and third trimesters?

Wonder if Orlando Bloom likes Ozzie beer, too.

Can we please get Cody Gifford to REPLACE KLG?

Tori, I now must re-evaluate my opinion of the 90210 cast's intellectual prowess.

Can we take up a collection to pay Lilo NOT to pose nude?

Remind me to miss the M Night Shyamalan movie.

Perhaps drunk is the best way to see Wizarding World.

Yeah, Spence. Don't we all.

Spencer, I'm sure on Father's Day, your Earth father was thinking of this quote from Buford T. Justice:

"There's no way, *no* way that you came from *my* loins. Soon as I get home, first thing I'm gonna do is punch yo mamma in da mouth!"


I'm not going to comment on LiLo's photoshoot since I got called out yesterday for treating a different 24 as a piece of meat. (Although let's be honest at this point LiLo is starting to look a bit like an over tenderized flank steak)


Chris Klein checks into Utah rehab... If only he had done this 8 years ago we could've been spared from Rollerball.

"Michael Jackson estate has made $1 billion since star's death a year ago" -- He was in such debt; how is it possible the estate made a profit? (Hint: A certain someone hasn't taken his veiled kids on any $300,000 shopping sprees lately.)

"Kathie Lee Gifford's son gets a summer job reviewing movies for 'Today'" -- During his breaks from reviewing movies, Cody's going to walk around the studio handing out $100 bills. (A little something his dad taught him on how to hang with the common folk.)

"Chris Klein checks into Utah rehab" -- Something tells me Tom Cruise is behind Klein's needing rehab. Call it a hunch.

"'American Idol'" drops its age limit" -- Talented over-28s still can't cut a break.

"Lindsay Lohan (and SCRAM bracelet?) to pose nude" -- Recycling career ideas already, Lindsay? Just promise me Ungaro isn't going to release a SCRAM line.

"Madonna adding a floor to her New York townhouse to house private gym." -- Where does she work out now, Bally's? Seems like yesterday I saw her at the Glen Burnie Holiday Spas waiting for someone to finish on the treadmill.

Audrina Partridge stalker pleads no contest "Sure I stalked her, but does anyone care?"

See that nepotism is working out great for you Kody.

Now maybe MJ's creditors can get paid. You know all those folks who he believed just gave him stuff because he was MJ? Yeah, those folks who actually expected to be paid according to the contracts he signed.

Dorkus, but you are also forgetting that their Majesties quoted you in their column. The dippie calling out was in the comments. Which is more prestigious?

Props to Dorkus for invoking the memory of the late, great Jackie Gleason.

And td, as for your assertion that "Talented over-28s still can't cut a break," I wouldn't worry. As a wise man once told me, in all likelihood the reality won't match the hype ("I thought it'd be bigger").

So MJ was the Salahis' role model?

I'm thinking she wishes she hadn't drank so heavily 9 months before his birth.

Jake & Vienna? I thought for sure those two crazy kids could make it work.

Point taken, byoolin. ;)

Well, it stands to reason that now that there isn't a constant drain on MJ's finances from plastic surgery, drugs, and dollies, the bank balance is much healthier.

Oh Tori Lollipop-head Spelling, do shuddup.

What would LiLo gain by posing nude? We have already seen everything. Multiple times. We're not interested.
