"Jane Fonda reveals she had breast cancer, but is now 'fine'" is one of those rare sentences that includes the words "Jane Fonda" and "breast" but which does not include the word "Barbarella." (Also, coincidentally, a Dino De Laurentiis production!)

"Gytta Lubov?" "No, thanks, I've already got one."

"Eddie Munster actor Butch Patrick goes to rehab." Accompanied by that great theme song, I hope.

Isn't that guy from "Mary Poppins" whose surname invokes WaPo's wirty dirds filter a little old to just now discover his porpoises for living? [I'll pause for the groan.]

"Jersey Shore" reject Angelina Pivarnick records "rap" song: what's surprising about this is that a typical "Jersey Shore" reject usually ends up harvested for its stem cells.

"Demi Lovato's rep denies she called dad from rehab" reminds me of this gem from the '80s:

That "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" actor would have been a lot less trouble if his name was Richard Van Lesbian.

I'm just sayin'.

Jane Fonda reveals she had breast cancer, but is now "fine"...Just got back from Vegas where I happened to wander into the Playboy store in Caesars and found a book filled with photos of red heads from back in the day. Anyways, I can attest from her photo that Jane Fonda was also "fine" back in the day. (that was just a long winded way of mentioning I was in Vegas for most of this week)

I was under the impression that most people on Jersey shore were rejects.

By the way, I'd be happy to console Giada on her recent loss.

In other words, Taylor Momsen is a normal teenager.

Of course the Gosselin kids are fighting. When you gotta scramble just to get to be first in the bathroom, it becomes a way of life. We should only start worrying when one of the boys starts hitting on the neighbor toddler kid. Or when the girls start dictating to the boys what they can wear or when they can go out.

Guess Butch Patrick answered his own question of "Whatever Happened to Eddie?"

Can't believe I actually found the celebrity beat. Either it has not been here or it is almost impossible to find. I always end up clicking on stuff I could care less about in a futile attempt to find this. Consider that when you are counting how many people navigate to the articles focusing on one celebrity subject at a time.

(Well, my commentary on this Mix got stuck in the WaPo comment holding file. Must've been my imagined fight dialogue between Miley's parents about whether or not she should pose proper nacked for the next Annie L. photo shoot. Anyway, you've been spared my ramblings. Happy Friday, all!)

"Dick Van Dvke rescued by porpoises" - I'm really trying to come up with a Brittany from Glee joke, but failing miserably.

Yo, TD: the hold is because you didn't change the name of the guy who played Rob Petrie to Richard Van Lesbian, or as suggested by yello, Dick Van Dvke.

Byoolin, you wrote that on porpoise, didn't you?

I wonder if there are gay and lesbian porpoises.

Perhaps Hollywood can make a movie about Richard Van Lesbian's experience, with the porpoise lead played by Dolphin Lundgren.

Actually, byoolin, it was probably because my view on the Van Ds (not to be confused with Kat Von D) is that while Di--, er, "Richard" was saved, no one noticed Jerry Van D beside his brother, thus Jerry was left to fend for himself.

First Caprica and now Rubicon. What is left on television that requires an attention span long than that of a gnat. I sure more than a few "Losties" had some hope that these complex yarns would spin out over some period of time - rather than getting tangled in the machinery of TV ratings. Sigh.

George: It's just like that story, ah, "The Prince and the Porpoise".
Blackadder: "...and the Pauper", sir.
George: Oh, yes, yes. "The Prince and the Porpoise and the Pauper".

- Blackadder, "Duel and Duality"

I can't help feeling sorry for those poor Gosselin kids. It's not their fault their parents had so many kids and are such train wrecks.

First Caprica and now Rubicon. [snip}

The upside is that I now have a lot more room on my DVR. I just don't know what to do with it.

According to media reports, two of the Gosselin kids (boy and girl) were expelled not only for fighting, but bullying, unacceptable language and generally uncivilized behavior. Quite aan accomplishment for a couple of six year olds. They will be home-schooled? Give me a break, surely not by Americas's most unfit little mommy, Kate. The amount of time this would take away from plastic surgery, personal appearances, maintenance on that godawful hair and thinking up new ways to exploit her children make that idea a fantasy.

The state of Pennsylvania needs to revisit custodial arrangements for those kids. Can you imagine them as teenagers?

Back to Jane Fonda. Jane unlike most celebrities, Madonna included has made huge contributions to American honor, and yes pride at being an American, adding to the dialogue on the morality of war.

I say this me a Marine wounded combat vet thinking my children were never allowed to watch a Jane Fonda movie. I was an @#$ and was so wrong. I am sorry Jane!
