Weird. Kayne West always seemed like a Wingdings kind of guy to me.

"Julia Roberts passes on Botox." In the "I won't use it" sense of the word, or in the "Hey, don't bogart all the Botox" sense?

Naomi Campbell also told the the judges that she didn't want to be at the trial and that it was an "inconvenience." At least she and former President Taylor agree on that.

Jennifer Aniston as Barbra Streisand for Harper's Bazaar: that's not "Bazaar," that's "inconceivable."

"Dustin Hoffman may save 'Little Fockers.'" He learned a thing or two from 'Ishtar,' then?

How often is Wyclef Jean allowed to be elected president? One time? Two time?

So glad Kanye joined twitter so we can see his innermost deep thoughts about earth shattering events.

Of course Naomi is not going to admit Taylor gave her diamonds. She would have to give them back. Goodness knows her bling is more important than any atrocities that might be committed in obtaining or selling them.

Wyclef Jean confirms he will run for Haitian president.

He may be ineligible, rendering it a moot point, NPR is reporting this AM, because Haiti's constitutional requirements for the presidency include five consecutive years of residence (Jean was brought to the US as a young child, and has resided here ever since). Maybe US Birthers will go to Haiti, where they might have a better chance of winning a victory. Heck, I wish they'd just leave. Period.

Coroner: Brittany Murphy's husband Simon Monjack died from pneumonia.

On a serious note, neither was found to have had enough meds in their system to have caused death, but apparently died for lack of prompt medical care once they developed pneumonia. And/or, maybe there IS something to that house mold theory after all.

Amy Adams and Viggo Mortensen join the cast of "On The Road."

Adams has been signed to play "a former junkie." Good practice for later portraying addict Janis Joplin?

Michaele Salahi accuses Whoopi Goldberg of "attack" [for tapping her lightly].

Oh, boo-freakin'-hoo! Our divine Pookie notes that according to the recipient of Mr. Salahi's wine shower, "Tareq was being 'verbally abusive to two women sitting at our table' [at the summer TV Press Tour promoting RHODC] and 'I just basically said, "Can you keep it down?",' after which, she says, Tareq 'threw a glass of red wine on me.'"
In other words, Michaele is so @*$#% she doesn't understand the meaning "attack." As if further evidence were needed that this fun couple thinks there's a special standard just for them.

Julia Roberts passes on Botox.

Passes it on to whom? Guess that means there's more left for other celebs and wannabes.

From the Copycats at Work file, something that we feared would happen sooner or later: a man copycats the Tom Cruise method of conception:

Naomi Campbell tells judges in trial of former Liberian President Charles Taylor: "I was given dirty stones"...
This proves that Charles Taylor was never a rich man in the style of Lewis (NSFW) Black:

Michaele Salahi accuses Whoopi Goldberg of "attack." I, too, am upset with Whoopi's behavior. She should have doused Michaele with a bucket of Thunderbird.

Sorry, Kanye, this forum only lets me write in courier. I hope you won't mind.

Will the National Enquirer one-up Harper's with the headline: "Jen Poses as Angelia to Win Back Brad"???

Did Michael Jackson take out a 20/80 ARM to buy Neverland? The depths of the sub-prime fiasco never cease to amaze.

I want Amy Adams and Viggo to buy me a round at Vesuvio.

Naomi Campbell also told the the judges that she didn't want to be at the trial and that it was an "inconvenience."

A prime candidate for the Lizard Island Manhattan Project. Could we just strand her there alone (without phone service, natch)? OK, how about if we send her the uber-self-entitled LiLo for company, since both seem to share similar views re those annoying courts unreasonably interfering with the train-wrecks that are their lives?

The article then reports that a police detective "examined surveillance video and saw the suspect purchase groceries using his store bonus card. In the doorway, the man can be seen squirting fluid from a bottle and taking a picture..." As if anyone needed further evidence that this perp is none too bright.

Obviously, Naomi Campbell needs help.

Sorry, Jen not = Babs, starting with the nose.

Plase Dunstin, just leave the Little Fockers to their fate.

The real reason Michaele is upset at Whoppi is that Whoppi didn't tell Michaele that a little club soda will get those pesky red wine stains out of any botox-ed face.

Jen's too smart to want Brad back. I hope.
