Brad Pitt joins Angelina Jolie and the kids in Hungary... Jeremy London due in court today to defend kidnapping accusation... A farmer's tribute: Michael Jackson scarecrows.

Sadly, Johnny Depp's visit to London just helps to underline the perception that little girls need a man's help to get anything done right. Kids - and especially young women - need to know that it's okay for them to run their own mutinies, revolutions, coups d'etat, and, yes, even random killing sprees.

Katherine Heigl's main image problem is that audiences have no interest in seeing her image projected in front of them.

Brad Pitt didn't want to be the kind of dad who gets accused of letting his kids go Hungary.

LoMa: "Good for -them-," JeLi? How would you feel if you woke up tomorrow morning and realized that MICHAEL LOHAN was the best you could do? (That's a rhetorical question, but you could be forgiven for reacting in a way that would qualify you to be the first patient at "Michael Lohan's Rehab For Broads I'll Try To Schtupp While They're Here," opening TBD.)

Mike Myers to voice Pepe Le Pew: Well, we know from "The Love Guru" that he's got the smell down pat.

I think Johnny Depp showing up at any school would cause a mutiny all by itself.

I guess if you really are a selfish beeyotch diva, you would have an image problem.

With all that punching going on, too bad no one punched Michael Lohan.

Shia LaBeouf should not play Karl Rove. John Lithgow should play Karl Rove. Or Elmer Fudd.

Katherine Heigl admits she has an "image problem"... And an acting problem, and a personality problem, and a...well you see where I'm going with this.

Ryan Seacrest in talks to launch a cable network...See America, this is why we can't have nice things.

The Walking Dead as a series of books? The dickens you say. What will they think of next.

Red - John Lithgow should play Elmer Fudd, or Fudd should play Rove?

Lithgow as Fudd would be some serious scenery-chewing. And Fudd's propensity for trying to shoot his costars in the face probably means he should play Cheney.

And in the Aliens prequel, Ann Coulter could play the monster and save the producers major $$$ on makeup.

Well, yeah she does, which is why I can't understand why Katherine Heigl is a movie star.

Mike Myers + live action based on illustrated work of children's fiction = The Cat in the Hat. I'm just sayin'.

Ryan Seacrest in talks to launch a cable network. Because there isn't one dedicated to infomercials for tooth whitening products and DIY fashion t-shirt stencils.

I see we've already covered all Kathy Heigl's issues. Bravo.

"Ryan Seacrest in talks to launch a cable network" -- Will it be Must Sea TV? That would be a no. Is that even his real name?

"Lindsay Lohan's cell phone, Twitter use is limited in rehab" -- Really? What's next, Facebook updates from the next papal enclave? ("My $'s on Foley. Levada? Hate-a, lolz.")

"Should Shia LaBeouf play Karl Rove?" -- Dunno, has Rove ever been arrested at 2 a.m. at a Walgreen's?

"Mike Myers to provide voice for Pepe Le Pew" -- Ooh, ooh that smell. Can't you smell that smell?

Did anyone see the send-up of "Jersey Shore" on "Bones" last night? Dr. Brennan puts on her cultural-anthropologist hat to make observations re them with her usual delightful detachment.

Funny as it would be to have Karl Rove played by a teeny little boy with a girly name, given his reputation, anger issues and the fact that he's already played an "American Psycho", I think Christian Bale would be much better casting.

There's a number of people whose Twitter/cell phone/texting addiction I'd like to see curtailed, but that's a whole other subject ...

Well, I know where I will be Oct. 19. Wonder which Losties will show up?

I am so glad that someone else took the responsibility of pointing that out.
