"I want every kind of press. She believes in bad press. There's no way my love for fame and her love for puppies will ever work out successfully. She just wants to hike and hang out and be calmer." -- Spencer Pratt, to People magazine on why his relationship with Heidi Montag is really over

Why does anyone care that Zsa Zsa is having hip replacement surgery??? It was even on our local news this morning? Talk about irrelevant. And she's what, 93? Not exactly uncommon. Now if she passed away or something, that would be newsworthy, but really, hip replacement surgery?

I read the Heincer quote this morning and what immediately popped into my brain was "She hikes?" Seems terribly out of character. Hiking involves effort and probably would result in sweating.

LiLo's vistor list for Tuesday, aka jail day.

1. Large Marge

2. Bouncing Betty

3. Squeeky

4. and her new BFF, Martha Victoria Elizabeth Holtz, aka Big Bertha!

Spencer, I can see your love for fame being incompatible with Heidi's pop music video delusions, but puppies? Dude, you're taking the "I'm a bad@ss" thing too far. Nobody loves a puppy-hater.

Paris Hilton denies she was detained in Corsica because of a small amount of pot. That wasn't pot, it was her Comin-Con survival kit.

Rachel Uchitel, if "Celebrity Rehab" is the best offer you got, you shoulda cashed in faster.

For someone supposed to show she is serious about rehab, LiLo sure has a lot of visitors to distract her.

Who would have thought Heidi was the sane one of that relationship?

"Lindsay Lohan sees visitors at rehab facility" -- Makes it sound like she's sitting in her parlor awaiting gentlemen callers. Though Shapiro is no gentleman.

"Mel Gibson's rep shoots down rumors that he plans to move to Australia" -- Thank goodness. Man has any more kids, the entire island's just going to sink.

"Paris Hilton denies she was detained in Corsica for having a small amount of marijuana" -- Oh that wacky press. It was a wheelbarrow full, if you must know.

"Wesley Snipes loses appeal of three-year prison sentence for failing to file tax returns" -- On a positive note, he's going to duet with Willie Nelson on a new version of an old favorite. "To All The Taxes I Skipped Before."

"Angelina Jolie, Catherina Zeta-Jones both interested in playing Elizabeth Taylor in adaptation of 'Furious Love'" -- Perfect, CZJ can do the "National Velvet" part and AJ can give us her all circa "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf." Brad Pitt will be Mickey Rooney, and Michael Douglas will be Richard Burton. Now.

"Andrew Young says John Edwards movie could include new information that was not in his book, 'The Politician'" -- That new bit about the Watergate hotel was INSPIRED. A bit farfetched, but this is Hollywood after all.

Glad to see this money grubbing shyster lawyer Shapiro is still in the news. There is a special place in hell for him when he dies.

LiLo's visitor list is unimpressive: not one of those people could bake a cake, much less know how to hide a file therein.


"Mel Gibson's rep shoots down rumors that he plans to move to Australia." New Zealand, on the other hand, doesn't have an extradition treaty with the US.


Why does "anyone" care that Zsa Zsa Gabor is getting a hip replaced? Well, Danilynn, I don't know about "anyone," but the median age of Celebritology readers is 85.


"David Prowse banned from "Star Wars" events." This is for his own good, really. You should generally stay away from any event that requires you to wear the same clothes you wore 30 years ago.


"Andrew Young says John Edwards movie could include new information..." Here we go again with the whole 'vast right-wing hairstyle conspiracy' shtick.


"Money grubbing," password? I'm pretty sure he sends an invoice just like most other attorneys.

td, are you channeling Rep.Hank Johnson from Georgia?

The Honorable Mr. Johnson said about Guam,

"My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize."

"Glad to see this money grubbing shyster lawyer Shapiro is still in the news. There is a special place in hell for him when he dies." ... Yep, right next to the Kardashians' father.

Elizabeth Taylor was quite strikingly beautiful in her day; she also had a body; that alone disqualifies veiny, anorexic Angelina.

Speaking of veiny and anorexic, I saw a pic of Sarah Jessica Parker in some magazine yesterday and O...M...G... is that woman ropy. Her feet have a map of the world on them.

Paris Hilton denies she was detained in Corsica for having a small amount of marijuana.

And here I figured she must've been doing the Corsican Brothers.


I care a dang sight more re ZsaZsa than a lot of of celebs.


For Liz/Mickey, how about Katie and Wee Tom, since he already has the requisite diminutiveness. She'd just need to fill out a bit. OK, and learn to act.

Speaking of the Wee One, did anyone else catch "L&O: CI" Saturday evening? (Yes, I realize I don't have a life). Guesting as a suspect on the epi was William Mapother: at one point in the plot when the detectives are perusing a high school photo of him and his buddies, one of the tecs comments that Mapother's character used to look like "a young Tom Cruise." Luckily, I was seated too far from the TV screen to "sploot" all over it.

In Chinese martial arts, the Dan Tien, the center of gravity of the body, is located three fingerwidths below one's navel. (Similar to the Muslim concept of the Kath, or the Sanscrit Uddiyana bandha.) It is what is necessary to be centered or grounded. Now that LieLow is to be really grounded for 90 days, perhaps she can become centered and her navel will stop moving.

Kabuki, that has to be one of the coolest comments ever. You took two celeb pieces and tied them into eastern mysticism. That takes talent.

Here's some really good news:
The Jersey Shore cast is on strike.

http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/38307134/ns/today-entertainment/?Gt1=43001

I don't know if this means they are going to stop partying and behaving like idiots, or if this just means VH1 stops filming it, and it's left to mobile phone users to capture it.

"Andrew Young says John Edwards movie could include new information that was not in his book, 'The Politician'."

What could that possibly be that would interest me?

- He's getting kickbacks from British Petroleum
- He wrote the script for "Sex and the City II"
- He had an affair with Tiger Woods

In other news, some guy named Spencer says he chose fame and fortune over his wife, Heidi. Sounds like a Hobson's Choice to me. Perhaps he should team up with John Edwards.

Some trivia ... The male versions of the plastic surgery horror Catwoman:

Cali, I wish such articles would also show computer-generated approximations of how such folks would look now if they had aged normally instead of undergoing cosmetic surgery. I suspect in most cases they'd look better without (the majority of) their procedures.

JeLi and Producer Paul, do you have a source for such images? After all, if photos of missing children can be extrapolated to what they'd look like as teens or adults, why not celebs if they hadn't undergone extreme surgery? Imagine Cher with a 64-year-old face and b00bs, not to mention her real nose.

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | July 19, 2010 1:57 PM | Report abuse

I'm sure they would look better ... people who age naturally, especially if they've taken care of themselves, always do.

However, celebs (and many others in Southern CA) are victim to their own vanity/insecurity, which leads them off the rails into freakshow land ...

Holy nightmares, Cali! That link needs a warning - NSFA - not safe for anywhere. The horror!

Thanks, epjd.

And for a great piece on the man who put the Mel in Meltdown, read Frank Rich's column in yesterday's New York Times:

You get the feeling there's a vault full of these and we're going to get another Gibson tape every couple of days?

Anyway, you can listen to all 6 (including the new one) uncensored Mel Gibson tapes in one place here:
