It would have been unthinkable to end the workweek without another preg celeb. Thankfully Selma Blair has stepped up to the plate, confirming to UsMagazine.com that she's expecting her first child with boyfriend Jason Bleick. This will be the 38-year-old "Hellboy" co-star's first child. [Us]

Colin Firth gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame, gives hilarious speech... Playboy releases 1999 Christina Hendricks photos (SFW, everyone is wearing a bikini or, umm, a clown costume)...

LiLo footwear (1): I predict the big seller will be the CFM boots with the built-in alcohol monitor.


LiLo footwear (2): I'd pick up a catalogue that was just pictures of LiLo's shoes.


Am I the only person who thinks the ideal woman for Kelsey Grammer is really Candy Spelling?


Kelsey Grammer is worth $120 million? At my favourite little breakfast place, that would get you seventeen million orders of scrambled eggs. (No salad, but a copious serving of home fries, bacon or sausage, toast and bottomless coffee. On Sundays, get there before church lets out or you've got a half-hour wait.)


"Playboy releases 1999 Christina Hendricks photos (SFW, everyone is wearing a bikini or, umm, a clown costume)." Nonetheless, today's Morning Mix is brought to you by the number 38, the letter D, and the sound "fap."

Selma Blair is 38? Wow, good for her. Are we sure she didn't switch skin suits with Lindsay Lohan? I mean, you put pictures of Selma Blair and LiLo side by side and ask 20 people to pick out which one is 38, 19 out of 20 pick LiLo, right?

byoo, Ms. Hendricks doesn't seem to put on her clown shoes yet in that pic.

Poor Taylor Swift. I mean no girl in the history of the world has ever just been dumped out of the blue.

Sofia Vergara's boyfriend planning a Senate run? He said he was already skilled in handling a bunch of boobs.

Richard Gere's biggest fan? Odd, I didn't see a hamster in that link.

What Dorkus said re: Ms. Hendricks. If that's her in that photo, she's had about 4 cup sizes worth of work done since it was taken. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Was there a condom shortage in Hollywood last fall?

northgs, that photo has been a pretty heavily discussed item on Fark for the last 24 hours (because honestly it combines two of our favorite things, big shoes and redheads). Yeah some people are saying she has some store bought shoes, but the general analysis is that they are real.

When that photo was taken she in her modeling days, and while she was bigger than most girls (as I've read in her Esquire interviews), she was still smaller than an average woman. Also, she was 23 at the time.

However, that year she starred in Undressed, and while she is still small, her shoes were becoming more prominent. If you track her guest appearances through Angel, Tru Calling, and Firefly you can see that as her shoes get bigger, her hips get wider as well.

She's even gotten a little bigger since being on Mad Men and being told not to work out. I going to say that she is one of those people who puts on weight in her chest first and the rest of the body follows. I mean how many of the female Lizards here look the same in their mid 30s as they did in their early 20s.

I may have done a bit more research than necessary on this topic.

I'm pretty sure they're even hotter now, Dorkus.

Hope Aretha's correct that it was something less serious than pancreatic cancer. Friday love to the Queen of Soul.

Dorkus, learn from the master. I bet the Lovely Mrs. Byoolin™ is going to be rewarding Byoo generously all weekend for this one!

byoolin been married to the Lovely Mrs. Byoolin™ for 11 years today. Rewards aplenty!

True Story: We were married in Niagara Falls, NY, by a judge who was later removed from the bench because he was so irritated after someone's cell phone went off in his courtroom that he cited everyone in the court - I think it was fourteen people - for contempt and threw them all in jail for the afternoon.


(The Lovely Mrs. Byoolin™ notes that in addition to the mere trivia of our anniversary, today is Dave Grohl's birthday.)

"Aretha Franklin says she didn't have pancreatic cancer" -- You better think (think) what you're tryin' to say 'bout her. Yeahhhhh, think (think think).

"Justin Bieber hospitalized after allergic reaction on 'CSI'" -- In the scene he was filming, he had to walk through a revolving door, see, and the glass....

"Lindsay Lohan plans to launch new footwear line" -- The capstone of which are her new Parent Trappy Sandals.

"Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean returns to rehab" -- And when he walked in, the staff sang, "Backstreet's back. Alright!"

"Martha Stewart gets nine stitches after headbutt from her dog" -- Before stitching her wound, she went into her garden and picked some aloe and a few herbs to bind it before laying on her head to reduce swelling. Then she took some newly spun flax and soaked it in organic salve before weaving it into the perfect-sized thread. For the needle, she took some silver ore from her mine into her 2,400-degree oven and hammered it down to the proper size. And for the dog....

"John Dye dead at 47" -- I don't know who he is/was, but reading the words "dead at 47" is never good....

And a happy anniversary to the Byoolins.

John Dye was most famous as a lead in the TV series "Touched by an Angel," although I first recall him from the short-lived "Jack's Place" starring the debonair Hal Linden (who was apparently required to wear a dinner jacket in each epi (sigh).

I remember John Dye as a medic on Tour of Duty. Then he became the Angel of Death on Touched by Angel. Which was, unfortunately, how they started off the news he had died. Even the Lindberg Baby was appalled.

The byoolins' anniversary AND the birthday of The Grohl?! Such rejoicing! Congrats to you all!

I showed that Playboy picture of Christina Hendricks to Roger DeBris' lesbian assistant. Her response: "Needs t*ts!"

I read another headline as "Martha Stewart gets nine inches with up head up her butt."

Taylor Swift should not take it personally. Jake just found a new boyfriend, that's all. See below for likely suspect.

Was Justin Bierber allergic to Marg Helgenberger, or did she excite him into heavy breathing? Or maybe Justin is Jake Gyllenhaal's new love interest.

How are the Byoolins celebrating number 11? Is Byoo taking the Missus to his favorite breakfast place and buying her Kelsey Grammer-sized breakfast?

Oh, ep. That's an Ick.Nast. for sure.
