Comments

"Paris Hilton sued for $35 million due to breach of hair extension contract" -- They tried to settle it amicably, but then it turned into a hair-pulling thing and got ugly.

"Kelsey Grammer's new girlfriend reportedly pregnant" -- Cheers!

"Alanis Morrissette announces she is pregnant" -- Man, Kelsey's been a busy little has-been, hasn't he? Who woulda thought? It figgers.

"Zsa Zsa Gabor released from hospital" -- Not her too! Promise me Kelsey had nothing to do with it and that no cops were slapped during her recuperation.

"Todd Phillips ('The Hangover') developing John Belushi biopic" -- Who would play John? I hear Jim Belushi's free in case the production needs some no-talent hacks to make the lead seem funnier.

Charlie Sheen tops list of best-paid TV actors...Glad they put the word paid in that headline, otherwise it would just sound ludicrous.

Ketut, the Balinese palm reader from "Eat, Pray, Love," hospitalized on eve of movie's release...You think she would've seen that coming.

Lawsuit filed by man who claims his idea for the movie "Lottery Ticket" was stolen by his agent...What's really amazing is that someone would be fighting to claim credit for this.

Is Rhianna the new spokeswoman for a baking supply company? (ella, ella, ella...)

It looks like the CEO of Hairtech International Inc. won't be able to say, "We'll always have Paris," after all.


Kelsey Grammer wonders what to do with that tossed salad and fertilized eggs.


Fantasia Barrino released from hospital: Only one of the three doctors on the panel wanted to keep her.


Charlie Sheen: best-paid TV actor by a healthy margin, most-overpaid by a factor not to be believed.


I'm no expert, but it seems to me that Montana Fishburne's strategy for breaking into Hollywood could use a rewrite.


Man says his agent stole his idea for the movie "Lottery Ticket": Uh-oh. It's the same guy I talked to earlier this week about that vampire surf movie.


With due respect to TD, I was going to suggest that nobody cares about John Belushi - he's been dead, like, fifty years or something, right? What America really wants to see is "According To Jim: The Real Jim Belushi Story." (But good news, TD - the fat guy who played the UPS driver in that other show is going to play the Jim role, leaving the Beloosh free to take on one of those no-talent hack roles that make the lead seem funnier.)

Paris should consult ep if she wants an extension contract extension. But apparently she doesn't.

I guessing Kelsey himself started the rumor about his gf.

Rihanna's tattoo appears to be tasteful, if that's not an oxymoron.

And I thought Zsa Zsa had finally found a good home.

"Judge removes herself". Wait, is this the Lohan family or the Coreleone "family."

For the Tillman story to be any good, it HAS to be rated R.

byoolin, I was trying to make that "tossed salad" line work but couldn't. Bravo.

You know, I might actually go to see "According to Jim: The Real Jim Belushi Story" but only if we get an extended scene of his and Julie Newmar's crazy neighbor struggle and he decides to retire by the end of the film.

Could be worse, though; HE could be America's best-paid TV actor (with a marginally more talented sibling) -- Charlie Sheen makes "$1.25 million an episode"?! For what, crossing his legs like a girl and mumbling? That's all I've seen him do on that show, but then again, I can only take about five minutes before the bile starts to rise and I have to change channels. UGH.

"Kelsey Grammer's new girlfriend reportedly pregnant." - So is he now going to crusade against morning sickness instead of irritable bowel syndrome?

Did the women folk take the morning off?

I am here happily lurking, with nothing witty to add.

Except to say that Little Lurker's first word was 'da da'...

It was AWESOME and Mr LTL was suitably struck with the common male affliction of 'a dust speck in his eye' as a result.

Congrats, LTL! If this is the first LittleLTL, you should know that the time between "first talks" and "first talks back" is shockingly brief.

Thanks for the warning Byoo - he's done a fair job of already conditioning me to realize just how precarious my illusion of control is...

trying to think of something funny to write and nothing leaps to the frontal lobes.
i can't stand charlie sheen. i'd like to pie his smug face.
paris hilton. that's it. paris hilton.
kelsey grammer is one of those touting family values. isn't he trying to start up some uber conservative talk show or television station? something?
john belushi's been dead a long time but i still love his work.
the lohan judge did a big no no, unfortunately, because she really had ms. lohan's number.
congrats ltl. a very close friend's oldest child had her first baby yesterday. first grandbaby for my friend and his wife. friends for 48 years. i arrived at the hospital about 30 minutes after he was born. talk about a speck of dust in the eye. all around the room.

Wait, didn't Alanis already announce that she was preggers? Or was it just media speculation? Anyway, good for her for breaking the celeb mold and actually being married while pregnant.

That tat makes Rihanna look like she has spent time in the big house. Yuk.

Not surprising THAT was the reason behind Kelsey Grammer's divorce. And it's a flight attendant ... how banal. Kelsey, meet Mel Gibson ...

WTF? Oh wait. I read that second story as "Kelsey Grammer's new girlfriend REPEATEDLY pregnant." Looks like it's time for an eye exam.

Just in case you read these comments, Jen ... ;-) ... I have flown in and out of Anchorage (Ted Stevens Airport) many times, as well as flown in small planes in Alaska, and here I still am.

Flying in Alaska can be more hazardous than in the Lower 48, but overall flying is still safer than driving.

Now for a tidbit from the random trivia files: if you're ever flying into Juneau, have an overnight bag with you. You have a high likelihood of not being able to land due to weather, so may end up spending the night in Seattle/Anchorage/wherever.

BTW, the above comments were pertaining to the chat (which I missed and just read the transcript).

My sister and her hubby live in Anchorage and he flies in those little bush planes all over the place for work. What amazes me is that some of these places get so cold that you cannot have a single micrometer of skin exposed for the 10 second walk from plane to building... Insanity.

Hair extensions? You mean that something about Paris Hilton is phony? I am crushed...
