RV dealer offers to settle Lautner suit with push-up contest: and if it works, BP's will adopt the strategy.

So Paris Hilton thought the baggie contained gum. I guess Wrigley is test-marketing new packaging.

"Jesse James", "Kat Von D", "Texas" and "romantic." One of these clearly has no business being in that sentence.

"Don Johnson complains to Jay Leno about..." To think that people actually stayed up late to watch that...

"New Vanity Fair/"60 Minutes" poll indicates that 76 percent of Americans would see a Mel Gibson film despite all those unpleasant audio tapes." And let's not forget "all those unpleasant Mel Gibson films," either, Jen.

Liz really needs to come back to DWTS. (Just picking on her in advance of her return). Because DWTS is Celebritology set to music.

They won't have Paris because she will apparently be dancing in the ballroom of the Graybar Hotel.

Lilo REALLY needs a staff to buffer her from life.

I won't watch BP doing pushups unless its the outgoing CEO. He has managed to wrest the Most Disliked CEO from the former head of Daimler Chrysler.

Byoolin said everything there was to say about the Jesse James Kat von D item.

Pit bulls do tend to consume other animals and small children.

Don Johnson? The Miami Vice Don Johnson? Give me a break.

John Cusack will make an awesome Poe.

76% of Americans realize there is no positive correlation between being a good actor and being a nice guy.

"'Dancing With the Stars' contestants officially announced" -- My money's on Margaret Cho not being able to get through one episode without being bleeped out at least once. Cory in the House for the win.

"Sandra Bullock speaks" -- First stop on the SB Victim/Wronged Woman Tour 2010? Getcher t-shirts now? Just a guess (the story links to Slash's divorce, which to me is much more interesting).

"Lindsay Lohan admits to making mistakes" -- But enough about "Georgia Rule." How is her rehab going?

"Slash files for divorce" -- Did his wife go by Mrs. Slash? "Slash, party of two, you're table's ready." Will Stephanie Seymour star in the video of the breakup?

"Don Johnson complains to Jay Leno about the excruciating process of attending the Emmy Awards and not winning" -- Don Johnson was nominated for an Emmy? Oh, an Emmy. For a second I read that as "Grammy" and started looking for a heaaaaartbeat.

"Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper to play cop-buddies" -- It's not a comedy, clearly. Do they both date Sandra Bullock in the film?

"John Cusack to play Edgar Allen Poe" -- Quoth the Dobler, nevermore!

"Jesse James", "Kat Von D", "Texas" and "romantic." One of these clearly has no business being in that sentence.


byoolin, I'm assuming you are referring to either Jesse James or Kat Von D, because otherwise thems could be fightin' words. (And possibly a slander suit brought by ep).

How about attending the Emmy Awards and not whining.
Lie Low's biggest mistake is thinking she's a "great actress."
Well, gee, officer, I mean, like, I put it on my gums. Seriously, there is a coca chewing gum, but they don't ship to the US, go to

My apologies, DM: I'd forgotten all about those "Texas Is For Lovers" tourist ads from the 70s.

td, I'll see your "one episode" and raise you - "first commercial break." (Do I hear an 'opening credits'?)

How come Michael Bolton's not in that DWTS group photo? (I could hardly believe it when I heard the news today.) I don't wanna know the price he's gonna pay for dancing now that his dream has come true. (But my guess is a new hip.)

Michael Bolton's chances are not very good. Singers haven't done so well, unless you count L'il Kim.

Winners tend to have an athletic background. That makes Warner and Fox the front-runners. Face it, cheese-heads, DWTS is an athletic competition. DWTS judging is a snark competition.

Hi! Just FYI, the Sandra Bullock item links to the Slash article.

Posted by: bethmcc1 | August 31, 2010 12:16 PM | Report abuse

From what I heard on the radio this morning, Slash didn't have a pre-nup.

Who's got the popcorn for this trainwreck of a divorce?

I just can't see Ryan Reynolds or Bradley Cooper as a cop. Both too pretty.

Vanity Fair: Interviewing LiLo? Again? Guess it was a slow news day. Maybe the first thing we can do to help her rehab is stop putting her on magazine covers and stop giving her attention/feeding the monster. Her statements in the article ring a wee bit disingenuous in light of the fact that she was out in the wee hours driving a Maserati to go pick up her friends the day after she was released ...

I have a man-crush on Bradley Cooper and can I just say... The A-Team was one of the dumbest movies I have ever seen and I paid to see "Clash of the Titans" so you know I have street cred here.

Since Bristol Palin is a fait accompli, I just wish she'd been assigned Maksim as her partner, because he'd squash her like a bug emotionally, and teach her a lesson.
