"Five reasons "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" tanked at the box office" - But it had such great internet buzz. It should have been the next 'Snakes On A Plane.'

Jennifer Aniston will reteam with Courteney Cox as guest star on "Cougar Town"...and in my dreams. But which gets to wear the Princess Leia brass bra?

"Nick Cannon dodges latest rumors about Mariah Carey pregnancy" -- Asking someone if his wife is expecting? America's Got Nerve.

"[W]ho wants to read Woods's post-divorce statement in comic sans font?" -- I used to think misuse of PowerPoint signaled the end of civilized speech as we knew it. Then I had to sit through a one-hour PowerPoint developed wholly in Comic Sans. The seventh seal had come! Take cover and pray!

"Fantasia Barrino ... says 'The best way for me to clear my name is through my [reality] show'" -- The best way to get ratings for that show is to spend time in the closet staring at some more medicine bottles longingly. "Fantasia, you almost died from an OD. What are you going to do now?" "I'm going to do a reality show!" Honestly, is she kidding? Tell me this wasn't a PR stunt, please?

"Chord Overstreet to play Kurt's boyfriend on 'Glee'?" -- Chord Overstreet? Was that his birth name or his adult film name (first pet + first street he lived on)? Suddenly January Jones seems as normal a name to me as Mary Smith. Chord?!

"Brad Pitt says he'd reconsider the death penalty as potential punishment for those responsible for BP oil spill" -- He would RE-consider. Did Obama name Brad to the Supreme Court while I was away on vacation? He is as dumb as a box of rocks. Doesn't he realize his job is to look good, not speak, attract women, and annoy men of a similar age who have not aged as well?

Condolences to the Short family.

On the other hand, Elin, you will be just fine without him. Go back to Sweden and lead the quiet life you really wanted.

I hope the judge's mystery ruling is that LiLo did not even pretend to fulfill the terms of her sentence and she has to try again.

No, Fantasia, the best way to clear your name -- and help yourself -- is to go away for awhile and get your act together. As Jen noted yesterday, a reality show is not what you need after an OD.

Even I, a scifi channel addict, don't believe there needs to be a sequel to Pirhanha 3D. I believe this moreso after watching Lake Placid 3 on Saturday night.

Someone really named their kid Chord? And I thought Trig/Trapp/Tripp were bad.

RIP Nancy Dolman.
