Comments

"Don King stopped at airport with a bag of ammunition in his carry-on luggage" -- I always did wonder what fireworks he used to get his hair to go like that.

"Oprah storms Australia" -- I hear they've already renamed it the Sydney Oprah House.

"Carrie Fisher outs John Travolta in new Advocate interview" -- I imagine Kelly won't be too sad if she doesn't get a baby gift from Princess Leia.

"Jennifer Grey has surgery to repair ruptured disc" -- Watermelons, you can come out now. Baby can't carry you for a while.

Liz and Jen, you are such teases: you mention Gwyneth Paltrow and a tonsilitis epidemic in the same blurb, but the two subjects aren't really related. At least, not the way one might hope they would be.

That's Lara Flynn Boyle? Are you sure that's not Jean Tripplehorn?

Carrie Fisher, you're either brave or crazy, but either way, the $cientolocult is now gunning for you.

Carrie Fisher outs John Travolta in new Advocate interview: "[M]y feeling about John has always been that we know and we don't care. Look, I’m sorry that he’s uncomfortable with it, and that’s all I can say."

Yeah, thanks for the homophobia, $cientolocult...


Adam Sandler to play a narcoleptic and an astronaut.

One and the same character? Talk about risky business.


Tiger Woods ex Elin Nordegren dating fellow student at unnamed Florida college?

So she's gone from being the wife of a tiger to becoming a cougar herself?


Gwyneth Paltrow says she will return to "Glee."

Though not a huge fan of Insouciant Goopiness, in all fairness I found her first appearance on "Glee" better than those of some others, so look forward to her reprising the role.

northgs, I guess great minds think alike when it comes to the $cientolocult. (Your post hadn't come up while I was still typing mine).

Don King got stopped at the airport with ammo in luggage, but the only thing the boxer travelling with him packed was a punch.


Oprah storms Australia: I picture it looking just like that scene where the Tasmanian Devil meets his soon-to-be wife.


Ozzy, you'll know "Who the [expletive] is Justin Bieber" after you hear his cover of "Fairies Wear Boots."


"Adam Sandler to play a narcoleptic and an astronaut."
1: Finally, I won't be the only one sleeping through his movies.
2: Open the pod bay door, HAL. No, I won't need the helmet.


Bad News: "Behold, if you haven't already, the trailer for 'Thor'"
Good News: "Sorry but this video is no longer available."

On a serious note, these quotes from Anne Hathaway at the news conference in support of the Nobel Peace Prize concert, of which she was an emcee:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/12/12/AR2010121202899.html

Re absentee Peace laureate Liu Xiaoba:

"I'm only here today because people have shown me the respect of human rights every single day of my life" (p. 2)

And comparing the Nobel Peace Prize concert with her upcoming gig co-hosting the Oscars:

"When you look at something like the Oscars, which I couldn't be happier to be hosting, that is such a celebration of our industry... But this? I don't think anyone involved at the Oscars will be offended when I say this is a bit more important" (p. 3)

re Lara Flynn Boyle: on the upside - she looks like she's eating again after taking some time off.....

Airport spokeswoman, Jacqueline May, reported today that King, 79, was detained last night by members of the Administration of Transportation Safety.

May noted that King had in his hand luggage ammunition for firearms of .38 calibers and .357. Don King http://usspost.com/don-king-24254/

Elin is 30 and the student is 35, so not really cougardom. ;-)

Holy crackers, that is just sad what Lara Flynn Boyle has done to herself. She looks like Priscilla Presley. When oh when will women stop ruining their looks with all this junk?

The Hurley separation is no surprise. Ginormous, conspicuously over-the-top wedding(s) to a known playboy? There's a recipe for marital bliss (cough cough).

Cali, according to the Hurley article, Liz had been fooling around. Don't know whether that's instead of or in addition her hubby fooling around, though.

Well, Liz hasn't been fooling around with me. :-(

That's Liz HURLEY.
