Comments

Of all people, you'd think Kat Von D & Jesse James would want to memorialize their relationship in something more permanent than a tweet.


Cameron Diaz, riskiest online search: it turns out that people who google her are 25% more likely to see "Knight And Day."


"Wyclef Jean hiding out after receiving death threats, but says they won't prevent him from running for president of Haiti." But it's an uphill battle when you have to woo potential voters by bringing them to your undislosed location one at a time.


And we thought Dr. Ryan's handwriting was bad: his texting was even worse.


If annoying people is illegal, Snooki should be charged as a repeat offender. And in a weird coincidence, my little sister mentioned yesterday that she wants to talk to that D.A. about me.


"Betty White gets a two-book deal." In that really large print, I suppose?


"Wesley Snipes has signed on to movie "Havana Heat," but will it be another direct-to-DVD?" Direct-to-IRS, more likely.

Byoolin made a better Snipes-IRS joke than I would.

Yeah, Oksana, judges tend to be skeptical about DV if the first thing you do is ask for more money. Especially when the ex is always claiming extortion. Who is advising this woman? (note to self, consider taking CA bar).

The credit card fraud was discovered when the cards were used to order actual food.

"Chelsea Handler to host MTV Video Music Awards"...Smirnoff to be the official sponsor.

"Jennifer Aniston, Anne Hathaway and Liv Tyler among victims of beauty salon credit card fraud"...And after seeing their most recent films, I was a victim of acting fraud.

"Betty White gets a two-book deal"...Someone should warn her not to buy any green bananas with the advance.

"Newly divorced Fred Armisen reportedly dating "SNL" co-star Abby Elliott?" Fred, you play Barack Obama, not Bill Clinton.

"Wyclef Jean hiding out after receiving death threats, but says they won't prevent him from running for president of Haiti"...In unrelated news, Lauren Hill hiding out but says bad reviews won't prevent her from releasing another album of bad spoken word slam poetry.

Wait now which actresses were victims of credit card fraud and which actresses are the most "dangerous" to search the interwebs for? And I know we've seen the top 3 from each list but is there any overlap on the complete lists? Did the police enlist the help of any porn sites? ("See Snooki Nekkid"--noooooooooo!)

On Idris Elba as Alex Cross:

I love Morgan "The Voice of God" Freeman as much as the next person, but I never thought he was right as Alex Cross. Idris Elba on the other hand, looks just perfect/yummy ;)

"Kat Von D tweets confirmation that she is dating Jesse James" -- In related news, @robertford is thrilled for the happy couple and wants to know where they're registered.

"Attorneys handling Lindsay Lohan case meet with newly appointed judge" -- Attorneys, plural. How may lawyers does it take to represent her?

"Michael Lohan appears in New York court" -- Do the Lohans get a family legal rate? If you've got a tabloid story, you've got a lawyer?

"Cameron Diaz tops list of riskiest celebrity online searches" -- Oddly enough, my search for "©@mron dl@z" presented no risks at all, plus I got great rates on international prescriptions.

"Oksana Grigorieva ... reportedly requests an increase in $5,000-per-month child support for daughter Lucia" -- Half goes to the staff who cuts Daddy's picture out of the newspaper every time he's arrested so the baby doesn't see; the other half is for the clipping service's daily reports on "Oksana," "Mel" and "batsh_t crazy."

"Chelsea Handler to host MTV Video Music Awards" -- I see they're ditching the comedy aspect and focusing the show once again on just music. About time.

"Britney Spears tweets picture from her first day on set of 'Glee'" -- Lemme guess, her roots are showing, she's wearing a plaid skirt and there's a cigarette in one hand and a mocha frappacino in the other. Am I close?

"Betty White gets a two-book deal" -- I read that two-____ word a little differently and thought to myself, poor dear, no one's told her about Dr. Ryan yet.

If Snooki is any indication then Patrick Fitzgerald really missed the boat... he could have nailed Blagojevich with 23 counts of being criminally annoying

Wait a minute, I thought Vanessa Paradis put the kibosh on Johnny Depp being in a movie with man-eater Angelina?

$5000 per month ... holy smokes, what does that child eat?

Annoying people is a charge? Really? I could really clog up our court system if I wanted to file some lawsuits for THAT.
