In related news, Jodie Foster's divorce from reality declared final.

"Jon Gosselin takes his mea culpa to Twitter." I recently read somewhere that 70% of all tweets are never read by anyone. I wonder if this is one of those, or if it's one of the much smaller percentage that is returned to the tweeter with an invitation to "shove it where the sun don't shine."

Kanye, soldiers for culture don't commit suicide. That was the code of the Bushido, not the code of the Hip-Hop.

"Re-imprisoned T.I. dropped by AXE body spray." Just as well - you don't want to be the best-smelling man on the range.

"If Malaria was a person, I'd kick them in the face" boasts Aziz Ansari. And if Malaria were a high school English teacher, he or she would recommend that you get a tutor to help you rewrite that sentence, young man.

Never mind crossing "Glee" with "Bad Santa" - let's see "Glee" crossed with "Oz."

Yeah, Jodie, but what does everyone else in Hollywood call Mel?

As ever,

"Re-imprisoned T.I. dropped by AXE body spray."

That sound you hear is the sales rep whose job it was to bring T.I. his monthly supply sighing in relief and pulling up his pants.

Jodie, for some reason, I just don't know if I can trust your expertise on loving men.

If Julianne Moore is a "hundred year old model", then I would seriously consider robbing that grave.

And if Aziz Ansari was in front of me, I'd punch him in the face.

byoo, they already crossed Glee with Oz. It was a disgusting remake of the Wizard featuring the insufferable Zoe Deschanel as Dorothy. Oh, the OTHER Oz. Nevermind.

And what WOULD we expect a "Gone Baby Gone" actress to be charged with, if not B&E

Hey all - LTL popping in to say you wont see much of me going forward, work is too daggum busy... I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you all and will miss you and your snark!!!

PS in one final update: little lurker has four teef, is thisclose to walking, has learned how to clap and says "dada" all the time (mama not so much). It was a very productive summer.

I remain totally and utterly besotted.

"Jodie Foster says Mel Gibson is 'the most loved man in the film business'" -- Just how many points on the back end did she have from "Maverick"?

"Jon Gosselin takes his mea culpa to Twitter" -- He is learning fast at the David Arquette School of PR Management.

"Julianne Moore calls herself 'the hundred-year-old model'" -- First, that was not you; it was Barbara Billingley until she up and died six years early. Second, "model"? In your dreams, girlie. Who are you again?

"[C]ross between 'Glee' and 'Bad Santa'" --- I'd rather see a cross between "Glee" and "Harry Potter." Picture:

* Harry singing, "All By Myself"
* Ron singing, "Loser"
* Hermoine singing, "Torn Between Two Lovers"
* Snape singing, "That Don't Impress Me Much"
* Voldemort singing, "My Way"

I'm actually surprised no one's done that yet. C'mon. Wouldn't you rather see that instead of anything "Bad Santa"?

LTL, it won't be the same without you. Even if it's on off hours, try to drop by with a bit of snark, as well as updates on the Little Lurker. Best wishes.

I used to think Kanye was just a pompous, egotistical a--hole, but it keeps becoming more apparent that this guy's got a WHOLE lot of baggage. My contempt is starting to turn to pity.

In denial much, Jodie?

White Trash Beautiful? Nice values you're teaching your kids there, Sambora.

It looks like Julianne Moore's head was photoshopped onto someone else's (much smaller) body. Something doesn't quite fit.

Lastly, did anyone else hear Alec Baldwin's hilarious "Don't give" pledge drive announcement on NPR this morning? I almost drove off the road I was laughing so hard.

Note to Jodi & Whoopi: don't drink the Kool Aid at Mad Mel's again.

Cali, I can't be sure if that was photoshop, but I'd be glad to study the pixels for you.

For all you Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson bashers.... If you had been following this story in the LATimes online, or even TMZ (the web site for people who have nothing better to do than watch television, and therefore dabbles in the gossip surrounding their lives), you would have found out by now that Oksana Grigorieva has been telling one lie after another to catch headlines and the news media has finally written her off as a lying, gold-digger, who was not satisfied with the $15M Mel offered her to take care of Lucia, the child. She wanted more. In yesterday's LATimes it was reported that she had fired (or they quit the fired to quit ratio is about even) her 40th lawyer in this sordid mess.
Bottom first she got a sympathetic ear. Now everyone is hoping she jail time and that Mel gets custody of his daughter.

Mel Gibson is a talented actor and extremely creative. Jodie Foster, thanks, for supporting Mel. I wish I could do something to help him. His behavior is the result of personal (private) problems. What excuse do "journalists" have for their less than professional "behavior." Stop attacking him, stop broadcasting every move he makes. He needs support of family and friends to get through this rough point in his life. He has done so many good things and he deserves a break. What does it say in the Good Book: Let him who is without sin cast the first stone? Mel, you have friends and more support than you will ever know.

Cali, I've heard that Alec Baldwin "Don't pledge" fundraising plea too: darn near splooted all over the keyboard!

Did you know that he filled in for Kurt Anderson as host of "Studio 360" one weekend earlier this year, and did a fine job? Maybe Alec's serious about not doing so much acting once "30 Rock" is over.

Is the Baldwin "don't pledge" thing on YouTube or somewhere? The ones I found on YouTube don't seem to have "don't pledge" in them.

I am absolutely sick that they're contemplating remaking "The Crow." The fact alone that Brandon DIED shooting that film should make it totally off-limits, it's a freaking memorial to him at this point.

Uhhhhh... Did you see "Max Payne"?

Nooooooo... okay, maybe Yes.
