LiLo receiving 250 letters a day in jail: Those folks USPS Change Of Address forms make ALL THE DIFFERENCE.


"Leonardo DiCaprio officially drops out of Mel Gibson Viking movie." Turns out it was the kind of publicity he didn't think he could a-fjord.


Matt LeBlanc dyed his hair while on "Friends": worse yet, he got that hockey-playing chimp in that movie they did hooked on the Grecian Formula, too.


Some day, years from now when people know her name, Montana Fishburne will be able to say that she came up the hard way, worked her way to the top before the long slide back down, but then she sucked it up, put her head down and ground it out, and, ooh, boy, has it been a ride. But the Hollywood fame thing just never happened for some reason.


Mel e-mailed an apology to Oksana, but with the kind of language he's been using lately, it went straight into the spam folder.

I just threw that word, "folks," in the LiLo thing for fun. Feel free to use it elsewhere if you like. The sentence doesn't need it.

So someone tell me I am wrong (sorcerer's cat?) but don't the actors just pay money to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? And if that is true, shouldn't the note above be "Marky Mark paid off his star loan and attended an'installation ceremony' on the Hollywood - I can afford it and you cant Walk of Money-er Fame"?

Since 1968 there's been a fee (then $2500, now $25K) to pay for maintenance of the walk. It's assessed to whomever nominates a star for inclusion, sez Wikipedia:

LTL, please don't shatter all my illusions.

If JLo comes to Idol, I vote the judges have to stand.

So is 250 more or less letters than she usually receives. We know she has at least that many friends and relative who can write. Even tho they have all been to see her in person.

Mel is going to replace Leo with the vikings from the Capital 1 commercial.

I am shocked, shocked that an actor such as LeBlanc would dye his hair. Almost as shocked, shocked as I am that Sara Gilbert says she's geigh.

You mean Levi lied to Bristol about sex? What's the world coming to. (so to speak.)

Guess Ghost Rider 2 will add twice as much to Cage's rep as a serious actor. Can Hamlet 2 be far behind*?

*see my comment about JLo above

Idol should've quit while it was ahead, gone out on top.

The season w/Adam Lambert should've been their last. Even the die-hard AI fans at work were meh about last season.

At least we'll still have Simon on his other show & then we can watch the trainwreck that will be what's left of Idol & watch it implode.

"Mel Gibson reportedly e-mailed apology to Oksana Grigorieva morning after alleged assault."

Or as her lawyers call it, Exhibit J.

“Levi is one of three possible fathers who were with Lanesia during the probable week of conception.”

Just how many guys do you have to sleep with in a week to be labeled a s1ut in Wasilla? By those community standards, Bristol WAS a virgin.

Just how big was the closet Sara Gilbert came out of? Just the West Coast, or all of North America?

Leo drops out of Mad Mel Viking film. Because he's already gone down with one ship, and that was enough.

Given Montana Fishbourne's father's connections in the (mainstream) industry, if she really wants to be famous, she doesn't have to do it this way. Methinks there's more to this than simple fame-wh*ring... which may be why she's working with a major production company.

The Levi Johnston item should read, "Did (he) really get another ex-girlfriend pregnant". Because we're pretty sure about Bristol. If she decides to keep him, I hope she's got a short, stout leash on hand.

Poor Chelsea Clinton. I suppose the media scramble was inevitable, barring a wedding at Camp David or the White House itself, but jeez, just what no bride needs on her day. (To say nothing of the *other* Rhinebeck, NY, wedding this weekend. That chick is gonna have stories!) At least they've got good weather, and the military-enforced no-fly zone should keep the airborne paps at bay.

After the Capital 1 vikings work with Mel (even if they don't finish the picture) watch for the new commercials to end with "wtf is is YOUR wallet."

With his recent performance, Levi Johnston has earned a reality series, or at least an episode of Maury Povich.

Matt LeBlanc admits he dyed his hair the entire time he was on "Friends."

I always assumed the entire cast dyed their hair (even Gunther). Is Matt implying that someone in the cast DIDN'T color their hair?


Laurence Fishburne's daughter, Montana Fishburne, reportedly trying to break into Hollywood with sex tape.

And the ghost of Thurgood Marshall (whom LF played on stage this spring in DC) is spinning in his grave for his defense of the 1st Amendment.


Did Levi Johnston really get ex-girlfriend pregnant?

How's that abstinence-y only-y thing workin' out for ya?

Oooh. Matt LeBlanc looks good with gray hair. I think he's much more handsome now then when he was on Friends.

Good on DiCaprio.

They're called condoms, Levi. You can buy them at a drug store and avoid these sorts problems. .

DCCube, maybe the cold weather in Alaska keeps the condoms from maintaining their elasticity.

“Levi insists the baby isn’t his, but no one really knows for sure,” a source told RadarOnline.com exclusively.

“Levi is one of three possible fathers who were with Lanesia during the probable week of conception.”

Customers, please take a number for faster service.

Sara Gilbert reveals she is lesbian. In other news, Byoolin reveals that he is Canadian.

You have to pay $25K for a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but mug shots are still free.

Mad Mel doesn't need anyone else in his Viking movie. Viking Berserkers got loaded on amanita muscaria mushrooms and vast quantities of alcohol, leading to "a great hot-headedness, which at last gave over into a great rage, under which they howled as wild animals, bit the edge of their shields, and cut down everything they met without discriminating between friend or foe." In fact, that's not even a movie, it's reality TV.

kabuki, you rock. This also explains the Scots army scenes in "Braveheart."

Not sure Capital 1 is ready for that level of enthusiasm in its commercials. The vikings may have to be scaled back to huns.

What do you call people who practice abstinence?

--drum roll--
PARENTS.

Moving on ... Hate to disappoint you, Andrew Morton, but I doubt Angelina Jolie has the emotional maturity to change the way she sees herself. Wonder if those who see her as "Saint Angie" will now finally realize she's a complete whackadoodle.

Montana, following the path of Kim K. ain't exactly the way to gain respect. Although it appears respect isn't what she's after.

But Sas already knew that - he has a very highly developed sense of eh-dar.
