Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds ring in new year; Doctors working to save Zsa Zsa Gabor's leg

By Jen Chaney and Liz Kelly

Video: Gerard Butler's latest release -- a commercial for L'Oreal Men:

More morning mix -- including who (cough Ryan Reynolds cough Sandra Bullock) spent New Year's Eve together -- after the jump...

Celebrity Beat: Yes, Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock rang in the new year together, but calm down -- they're just friends... Preliminary hearings start today in Michael Jackson manslaughter case... Doctors working to save Zsa Zsa Gabor's gangrenous right leg... Jason Schwartzman and his wife welcome baby girl Marlowe Rivers... Tone-Loc blames seizure for DUI arrest... JWOWW's New Year's Eve look -- NSFW or anywhere, really... January Jones bares (almost) all for Versace ad campaign... Jessica Simpson just shouldn't have worn this.

Rumor Mill: Lindsay Lohan moving next door to ex Sam Ronson?... If so, Ronson is not happy about it... Zac Efron and Rumer Willis?... John Mellencamp and Meg Ryan!?

Pop Culture Mix: Next on James Franco's agenda: directing adaptations of William Faulkner and Cormac McCarthy novels... Jodie Foster joins Matt Damon and Sharlto Copley in Neill Blomkamp's "District 9" follow-up, "Elysium"... Gwyneth Paltrow may do a duet with Cee-Lo when she hosts "Saturday Night Live" this weekend Jan. 15... "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" was third highest grossing show on Broadway over New Year's weekend. So take that, safety-obsessed nay-sayers!... Roger Ebert reveals new hosts for relaunch of "At the Movies"... Requisite geeky "Star Wars" links of the day: A pair of pumps from a galaxy far, far away and an AT-AT snow fort (that won't be the last one of those we see this winter).

Zsa Zsa's tribulations remind me of a George Carlin routine, "Words," which include a section of George uttering sentences no-one had ever said before. The first one: "Please saw my legs off."

"Tone-Loc blames seizure for DUI arrest." That's some funky grand mal seizure.

J-Woww oughtta consider renaming herself J-Ewwww.

Neil Sedaka on the Versace ad campaign: "January/ You start the year off fine."

"Zac Efron and Rumer Willis?" This is perfect: every relationship should have one partner who's pretty and one who is strong, square-jawed, and masculine.

This is a little ditty about Jack & Ryan / Two American kids who used to have fans / Jack was gonna be a rock'n'roll star / Ryan had her lips blown up a little too far.

(Also, something about the future ex-Mrs. Mellencamp getting half of all those little pink houses.)

The safety-obsessed nay-sayers who skipped "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" this weekend were more than replaced by the crossed-finger "fall! fall! fall!"-whisperers.

Oh the Mrs. is going to kill me if she finds out Ryan Reynolds was in town at the same time she was.

Byoolin, excellent work on the funky grand mal seizure! I'm throwing Zsa Zsa's gangrenous leg at your feet.

John Mellencamp:Meg Ryan::John Mayer: Jennifer Aniston.

"Gwyneth Paltrow may do a duet with Cee-Lo when she hosts "Saturday Night Live" this weekend..."

Goop You?

Re: J-Woww. Actually, that outfit is appropriate for one place on the Jersey shore - a side street in Atlantic City.

On the other hand, there is no reason at all January Jones shouldn't wear a Versace handbag and nothing else. After all, the thing costs at least as much as a good suit, and she can certainly pull off the look.

John Mellencamp and Meg Ryan? It is a lonely ol' night, after all.

Thanks for the kind words, MStreet. It was a toss-up between "funky grand mal seizure" and "I paid a fine to do the wild thing."

"Doctors working to save Zsa Zsa Gabor's gangrenous right leg" -- And dancing like boxers to avoid her slapping hands while they work.

"Tone-Loc blames seizure for DUI arrest" -- Hey you two, I was once like you and I like the DUI thing.

"John Mellencamp and Meg Ryan!?" -- Where to begin?

* Clearly he has a lover who will drive him crazy
* She sings "oh yeah, life goes on. long after the thrill of Dennis Quaid's gone"
* He thinks of her in the shower each time he sings, "Rain on the Scarecrow."

How soon before Frederic Prinz von Anhalt tries to sell Zsa Zsa's leg on ebay?

J-Woww seems to be wearing Lindsay Lohan's Ungaro contribution on her shoes. Well, LiLo did plan to become a shoe designer...

Byoo, do ya think that George Carlin would pair up "Please saw my legs off," with "Cheese t|ts"?

Excellent "Jack & Diane" lyrics. I suppose that Mellencamp will step out formally with Meg Ryan and proclaim that she is "The Best That I Could Do."

When wearing that outfit, will Jessica Simpson sing "I Am the Walrus" or "Nanook Rubs It"?

Jen, those Star Wears peep toes are calling you. Jen, they're saying, "You want us. You know you want us. You must have us for your own. Price is no object. You must have us."

Dorkus, maybe you could buy Mrs. Maximus that pair of Star Wars pumps as a peace offering.
