How many elephants does it take to be legally mrried in India?

Re Mel, show us the tweets.

Oksana probably holding out for bigger bucks from Playcodger.

I'm assuming Matthew Morrison knows where Cameron Diaz has been.

Partying probably does not mean the same thing to Chelsea and Fiddy as it does to the rest of us.

Gotta go with Jar Jar on this one.

Oh, THOSE kinda ministers. Not clergymen.

Hey, byoo, why didn't Canada grab Randy Quaid while you had the chance?

Silver lining department: Mel Gibson can now put 'x' beside "Zach Galifianakis" on his Hateful Screeds Bucket List.


Playboy's Unabashed Dictionary defines its $75K bid as making an "Oksana, you can't refuse."


Surely Jesse James and Kat Von D are separated by several light-years from anything as classy as "snogging"?


More "Star Wars" movies might not be a ridiculous idea, if it were accompanied by reports of George Lucas' retirement from screenwriting and directing. Also, JeLi, DON'T EVER MENTION Jar Jar Binks AGAIN EVEN IF YOU'RE JUST GOOFIN' AROUND.


When is CBS going to develop a reality show about what TV suits see when they have their heads two feet up their own behinds?

sorry for the double post. supposedly there was an error on the first one, but I guess the error message was in error.

Plus, the JeLi Island Network is discussing a "reality" show about celebrities with the same names as other celebrities. Jesse James and Jimmy Johnson guest on the first ep.

Are you kidding? They're "seeking asylum from Hollywood star wackers."

You don't want to mess with *those* guys. Just ask Sal Mineo, Bob Crane, and Natalie Wood. Oh, wait, that's right: YOU CAN'T.

Oh Canada, we'll keep sending Randy Quaid and his crazy wife your way as long as you keep letting Celine Dion spawn.

Not too wild about Prince William's fashion choices. He's looking a little too much like his father.

Mad Mel mad.

"[Prince William's] looking a little too much like his father."

As opposed to Prince Harry, who some pundits say bears no resemblance to Charles at all, but sure looks a lot like one of Diana's lovers.

Prince William used to be adorable, and now he's looking a LOT like his father.

Love Kate's outfit, although the hat looks like it's a lot of work.

It seems one of the downsides to living on the Left Coast is that by the time I get to Celebritology in the morning, I have to scroll down through a lot of articles before getting to the Morning Mix. Ah well.

Not that I'm an expert on these things, but isn't $75K for a Playboy shoot kinda' low-ball? Didn't they offer the half of Heincer with the inflatable chest (I was going to say "the more feminine half of Heincer" but that doesn't really delineate between the two and would have just been confusing) like a half a million dollars for that shoot? I don't necessariky think the amount that Playboy would pay a woman to pose nude is a measure of her worth, but, dang, that offer just seems cold.

Tyson is not only a rapist. But he unmercifully BEAT (Robin Givens) HIS WIFE and was a CHRONIC ABUSER w/ghastly photos to prove it.

I think it's simply a "travesty" that a supremely spoiled sophomoric pack of so-called ACTORS can RULE the film industry. LIKE anybody in THAT CAST has EVER DONE anything (frankly) remarkable in THEIR ENTIRE LIVES.

WHO HASN'T DONE THINGS THEY REGRET ?? ... THAT they SHOULD JUDGE MEL GIBSON?

Basically "character" actors, which NEVER had the IMPACT in this industry -- or THE WORLDWIDE audiences Mel has.

The MOVIE going public will rush to see Mel's movies -- regardless. Frankly, Mel's PERFORMANCE is the ANYONE REASON to see that film.

Anyone who could EVER BELIEVE that gold-digger ... doesn't HAVE a brain. He was set-up.... your Hollywood Hypocrites' are just THAT.

NOW Brad Cooper & Zach replaced MEL. WHO ARE THEY TO DECIDE ??? Mel’s DONE more in a year than any of those hack actors ever could in their entire lives ...

ACTOR. 50 films
PRODUCER, 20 films
DIRECTOR, 5 films
WRITER, 4 films
SOUNDTRACK. 4 films

It's good to know that Mel Gibson's publicist is earning his retainer.

"Playboy offers Gibson ex Oksana Grigorieva $75K for 'full nude' photo shoot" -- Is that the going rate for that magazine? No wonder Pam Anderson keeps going back to the well.

"Apparently still together, Jesse James and Kat Von D spotted snogging at a Mexican restaurant" -- And lemme tell you, those neverending bowls of Chi-Chi's chips and salsa went flying EVERYWHERE.

"Cameron Diaz and 'Glee's' Matthew Morrison?" -- Sounds to me like a certain guy is angling to do a voice in "Shrek 5." (Hey, it worked for Justin Timberlake.)

"Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent spotted partying together. Whatever that means." -- It's a metaphor for the value of her "talent." Only I wouldn't go above two bits.

"CBS developing reality show about people who share the same names as celebrities" -- Finally, a way for Pope Benedict XVI from Fort Lee, NJ, to end all those house calls he's been getting from people selling encyclicals door-to-door.

Is Pope Benedict XVI of Fort Lee, NJ in the phone book under "P", "B", or "X"?

Can we get a crazy battle between the Mad For Mels and the Wacko for Jackos?

I'd actually sign up for one of those "sponsored" pay chats to watch that train wreck.
