'Oprah visited Rosie O'Donnell for a "crazy check" before offering her an OWN show" - Also known as the Pot-Kettle Inspection.

The good news is that Rosie is only Rosie O'Donnell Crazy, not Courtney Love Crazy, which gets you a much worse time slot.


"Seth Rogen engaged to girlfriend Lauren Miller." Congrats - I love all her wacky ski movies.


It turns out you can't really say you've had enough of Betty White until you explore for a little while the image of her naked and saying the filthiest things you can imagine.


"Lil Wayne moved to solitary confinement for breaking jail rules..." It turns out Betty White is *not* his wife and shouldn't have been allowed that conjugal visit. Also, who's going to pay for the damage to the trailer?

Yellojkt, you beat me to it re: Oprah.

"Susan Boyle backs out of tonight's 'Dancing with the Stars' performance" -- Pity really, but try as she might, she couldn't make "I Dreamed a Dream" work sung as a cha-cha.

"Lisa Rinna goes under the knife to slim down her upper lip" -- I am imagining that scene in Jaws when they slice open the shark and a million things (license plates, etc.) fall out. Take cover!

"Brangelina's kids start school in Budapest" -- And, like in classrooms throughout the U.S., the kids' teachers are looking at their roll sheets and thinking, "Pax? What kinda name is Pax? Maddox? What? Doesn't anyone give their kids real names like Gyorgy or Ilonka anymore? Who's going to find Pax or Maddox on a personalized lanyard or bike license plate at the beach? Dumb parents."

"Katherine Heigl smokes electronic cigarettes" -- But please, no awards for her lung-friendly choice. She must decline.

"Kim and Kourtney Kardashian to 'Take New York' in new reality series" -- I made the huge mistake of watching something on E! over the weekend. The commercials are filthy! The one for the show with those two had one of their husbands (I can't tell them apart and don't care to) being a bit blunt about... oh never mind. Trust me, it was inappropriate. They don't need another show.

"'Bourne' trilogy screenwriter Tony Gilroy tapped to direct fourth movie in the series" -- Like it matters. The movies are nothing like the books. Make 50 of them for all I care. In 3D. Whatevs.

"Chelsea Handler dating 50 Cent?" -- If it would make her go away, I'd date her.

Michael Sheen, the Wesley Snipe guy from 30 Rock? With Rachel McAdams and Kate Beckinsdale? Clearly these attractive ladies are seeing some qualities not readily apparent to moi?
