"Tom Lennon and Robert Ben Garant ("Reno 911!") are taking over a project called "Wee McGinty," which is about a leprechaun who loses his memory, joins a group of firefighters, then gets hunted down by paramilitary leprechauns. Go ahead. Re-read that sentence. It still says the same thing." It actually makes a little more sense when you know that these are the same scribes who wrote the "Night at the Museum" movies- sort of helps to do your homework, Liz.

"Amy Winehouse set to debut new material this month. In Brazil. Hmm" -- Proof that there's another scary topless beach photo in our future. [Shudder]

"Camille Grammer not returning for second season of 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'" -- But Kelsey's new fiance is totally signing on.

"Reese Witherspoon spotted buying a pregnancy test" -- She's getting into character for her next film, "Legitimately Bloated."

"Barbra Streisand again considering playing Mama Rose in a film version of 'Gypsy'" -- Worst idea since she decided to play Lowenstein in "The Prince of Tides." Will she call the film "Mama Rose"? If she does play the role, Mama will have a much larger part and sport very long distracting fingernails. Ugh.

"Michael Jackson's children watched him die, says witness." Truly awful. Silver lining: they didn't have to pony up for a gun and a ticket to Reno.


LiLo likely has no plans beyond where she might score.


"Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds are not dating." They're both holding out for someone hotter than their respective exes.


John & Meg: that ain't rain on the scarecrow, it's Botox.


"Snooki would like to be called by her real name now that she's a published author." And Lewis Carroll, Isak Dinesen, Mishima, Mark Twain and even Richard Bachman fully support you in that desire.


"Carlos Santana marries one-time Lenny Kravitz drummer Cindy Blackman." One hopes that "one-time" in this context means "former" and not "only able to play in four-four."


"Reese Witherspoon spotted buying a pregnancy test, according to Star magazine." They make great stocking stuffers.


A photographer says Kanye assaulted him in 2008? That has to be the slowest counterpunch I've ever seen.


"Tom Lennon and Robert Ben Garant ("Reno 911!") are taking over a project called "Wee McGinty," which is about a leprechaun who loses his memory, joins a group of firefighters, then gets hunted down by paramilitary leprechauns." You know, I don't think I've heard heard Tom Cruise do an Irish accent.

First, I gotta say this -- WHY did no one think to get the kids out of the room? How horrible for them.

Okay, on to the snark.

Of course Lilo is not moving. You gotta stay in a house 5-7 years before it is worth it to move again.

Apparently it is okay to go through life drunk, obnoxious and stupid, but not being called Snooki.

Another cry for help here. I think the Wee McGinty premise sounded kinda interesting.

Hurley, dude, the wisdom keeps on coming.

(I really liked one of the bog comments from a winner who had the sudden urge to buy a chicken restaurant.)

BLOG comments, of course.

"Night at the Museum" authors or not, that pitch still makes no damn sense. Which doesn't mean I don't want to see it.

The Bill Murray karaoke thing is awesome if true; the website involved had something about a girl quitting her job via whiteboard that turned out to be faked, so I'm reserving judgement here.

OH SNA-AP!

Isn't that why you hire a personal assistant?

Bill Murray showing up at karaoke is alright, but I'm still holding out for ScarJo to show up. (If you are reading this ScarJo, I'll be at the Highball Friday around 7 in the Tiki Room).

Although I will say Bill Murray is much classier than Nicholas Brendan and Claire Kramer charging $100 to sing karaoke with them. I loved Xander and Glory, but not enough to drop that kind of money.

Third karaoke thing, one time during one of my friend's birthday at a local karaoke joint, in the room next to us was some of the cast of Friday Night Lights. No Connie Britton though.

I might do a bit too much karaoke, now that I think about it.

I think we would all be better off if none of the Real housewives came back.

Miley Cyrus hacker? I am saddened by the lack of axes in that article.


I thought Snooki was the beast that couldn't be named.


And really, weren't we all assaulted by 808s and Heartbreak back in 08?

byoolin1, Tom Cruise doesn't pretend to even know how to act with an accent. When he played Claus von Stauffenberg, a German army officer in Valkyrie, he didn't bother with a pesky accent...

Didn't Wee Tom try to fake an Irish accent in "Far and Away?"

The epi of FNL that took place in a karaoke bar didn't turn out well either.

You took the words right out of my mouth!


Lindsay Lohan has no plans to vacate house next door to ex Samantha Ronson.

Joe McGinniss would be so proud.

Amy Winehouse set to debut new material this month. In Brazil. That's one Brazilian that I don't want to see.

Blake Lively is the face of Chanel's newest handbag line. I hope that the new line of handbags is large enough to fit over Blake Lively's face.


David Arquette's last act before entering rehab: bloodying his nose attempting to break-dance. I don't know about you, but I think that sure beats a DIY circumcision.

It's obvious why Reese Witherspoon bought a pregancy test. She said to her boyfriend, Jim Toth, "Jim, I'm pregnant." Replied Jim, "How do you know?"

After looking at the pictures of Jacqui Ainsley, I'm scoring it

Barbra Streisand again considering playing Mama Rose in a film version of "Gypsy."

Making her casting in "Hello, Dolly!" seem like a stroke of genius by contrast. She's about as much the right age as Lucy was in the film of "Mame." I.e., NOT.

Confidential to Jenny McCarthy, from "Study linking vaccine to autism was fraud": You were had.

"...despite the claim in Wakefield's paper that the 12 children studied were normal until they had the MMR shot, five had previously documented developmental problems. [British journalist Brian] Deer also found that all the cases were somehow misrepresented when he compared data from medical records and the children's parents."

Camille Grammer not signing up for the second season of the RHOBH....it would be hard to live down that little rampage her drunken psychic friend had, accusing Camille's nemesis (Kyle) of having a cheating husband! Hyuk!

Waaaay late to the party, and watching BOTH of those movie insult videos just tacked on 20 more minutes...thank god I'm alone in the office, that was hilarious.

I was reminded of a great example of the "genteel" insult from Last of the Mohicans--"Duncan, you are a man with a few admirable qualities, but taken as a whole I was wrong to think so highly of you."
