Gary Coleman's will: just who is this Melvette Dumars, anyway?


Denzel Washington, Scarlett Johansson win big at Tony Awards...


"BP buys into Kevin Costner's oil spill solution." How can anyone mock this, knowing that BP's *first* idea was to dump boots, chunks of concrete and golf balls in the hole?


Of course Diddy had to give son a $360K car: kid kept buggin' him for the keys to Did's $1M ride. It's an actuarial decision, yo.


Side-effect of Mr. Margera's beating: he will now only be called by his first name ironically.


Joseph Jackson has now fingered everyone but The Illuminati for MJ dying. (That's odd - I could have sworn I just heard someone whisper, "...and that's the way we like it," after I typed the previous sentence.)


"Big Bad John" is one of my favourite songs. RIP, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean.


Heidi Montag hires PI: "We didn't exactly believe your story, Miss Montag. We believed your 200 dollars. I mean, you paid us more than if you had been telling us the truth, and enough more to make it all right."

Was Gary Coleman secretly Howard Hughes? How many wills does he need? The most current entry on his resume was security guard for FSM's sake.

I expect to read in tommrows Celebritology that Joe Jackson blames kbockl for Michael Jackson's death, since I've never purchased any of his music. I feel so...guilty.

Unless Shannon Price is the mystery woman, she's out of luck in the Will department again. Will's surfacing mysteriously weeks after the original filed is highly suspicious. It's not like no one knew he died.

Well, Joe you are getting closer on the cause of MJ's death. Not just include yourself in the list of bloodsucking family membes and you will be completely right.

I don't think Simon Monjack got this much publicity while he was alive.

"New Gary Coleman will surfaces, leaving his money to mystery woman" -- My money's on Charlotte Rae.

"Diddy defends his right to give 16-year-old son $360,000 car" -- Today a $400,000 car, tomorrow a $4,000,000 house. What's planned for Junior's 18th birthday, a plane?

"'The Karate Kid' tops the box office" -- Well if Jaden Smith has points on this film, I think he has a $400,000 car in his not-so-distant future.

"Bam Margera hospitalized after alleged attack from baseball bat-wielding woman" -- Jodie Foster, perhaps?

"Jodie Foster did not attack 17-year-old photog, says rep" -- Despite the fact that Bam Margera was last seen huddling in a corner mumbling, "No, Clarice, no!"

"Jamiroquai's 'Virtual Insanity' -- now it's a commercial for Ramen Noodles" -- Oh come ON, Jay Kay. Did you HAVE to sell out? Oh MAN....

"Say farewell to Little Orphan Annie" -- Can't say I'm surprised. Daddy Warbucks should never've gotten involved with the subprime mortgage industry.

Brad Pitt trimmed his beard... He gave Angelina a haircut?


BP buys into Kevin Costner's oil spill solution...Well they've got to do something with those Waterworld DVDs.

Singer, sausage maker Jimmy Dean dead at 81.
-My sausage biscuit is a little bittersweet this morning.


Ok, no one spoil the ending of Harry Potter for me. (Actually don't spoil the beginning or the middle as well).

"Melvette Dumars" and "RIP, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean."

byoolin, you're ON FIRE this morning! And I concur that Costner's idea couldn't be wackier than the so-called experts' to "dump boots, chunks of concrete and golf balls in the hole."


WTF is a "Bam Margera"? Sounds like a Emeril Lagasse impersonator who uses oleo.

Dorkus, how'd ya like the Tonys last evening?

S.J. is stolen biological material, taken against will and formed to clones line 200 pieces total. DANGEROUS, DANGEROUS, sign of dangerous criminal activity. Original Scarlett Galabekian future pediatrician doctor, pediatrician nurse license she obtained in 2008.

Speaking of Diddy, I tuned in to the Tonys last night and was so dissapointed he was not hosting. oh, Sean HAYES. never mind.

Heidi should hire a PI to investigate herself first. Then maybe she'd know what was going on. Nah.

Raimi seems the perfect choice for "Oz."

Too bad about Jodi not slugging the pap. I just lost some of the tremendous respect I have for her.

Note to self: do not attempt to read Celebritology before morning tea. I saw the headline "Gary Coleman surfaces".

What does BP have to lose? I think they'd try anything at this point.

Mmm Dorkus, I think it's much more likely the other way 'round as to who's the beard in that relationship ...

200 ScarJo clones? Is there any way that can be bad news?

(Oh, yeah, right: google "Scarlett Johansson jazz album." Still, a risk worth taking.)

Actually Costner's company's technology seems to make a lot of sense--it's too bad they didn't deploy the machines sooner. But something's weird about that article--the largest one is 112 INCHES high and weighs two and a half tons?

I had never heard of Simon Monjack until Brittany Murphy died. Then he died and I suppose it was newsworthy because he was so recently in the press due to her dying. But I can't for the life of me figure out what makes anything else about him newsworthy at this point.

Way to be classy Joe Jackson--blame a grieving mother while standing over her dead son's body for his death. Can we mark the one year anniversary of MJ's death by you just finally going away and shutting up?

Speaking of Simon Monjack, no one's mentioned that the role which won ScarJo her Tony last night was performed in the previous revival by a very young Brittany Murphy.

I never heard of Simon Monjack until his wife died, either. But now he's dead andyet annoying me from the grave. Anyone else find themselves humming Diana Ross and the Supremes after reading that story? No? Well, here's your earworm for the day, courtesy of the late Mr. Monjack:

Love child
Never meant to be
Love Child
Born in poverty
Love Child
Never meant to be
Love Child
Take a look at me

Started my life
In a old, cold, run-down tenament slum (tenement slum)
My father left he never even married mama
I shared the guilt my mama knew
So afraid that others knew I had no name

Love Child
Never meant to be
Love Child
(Scorned by) Society
Love Child
Always second best
Love Child
(Different from) Different from the rest

I started school
And a worn, torn dress that somebody threw out
(Somebody threw out)
I knew the way it felt to always live in doubt
To be without the simple things
So afraid my friends would see the guilt in me

Don't think that I don't need ya
Don't think I don't want to please ya
But no child of mine will be bearing
The name of shame I've been wearing

Love Child
Love Child
Never quite as good
Afraid, ashamed
Misunderstood
