Nicole Kidman spills about split from Tom Cruise; Bristol Palin penning memoir

Nicole Kidman is dishing about her 2001 split from Tom Cruise again. Kidman, now married to country star Keith Urban, said that she appreciates obsessiveness in a director, but "not necessarily in a husband."

"Dancing with the Stars" vet, abstinence ambassador and political daughter Bristol Palin's memoirs will be published in June, according to Amazon.com listing.

Balthazar Getty's father, oil heir John Paul Getty III, died on Sunday in England. The 54-year-old had reportedly been in poor health since a 1981 drug overdose that caused a stroke, leaving him paralyzed.

In the midst of an ugly custody battle, Halle Berry insists daughter Nahla is black: "I feel like she's black. I'm black and I'm her mother and I believe in the one-drop theory."

Now it can be told: Joan Rivers had a bit of help from body double Tabitha Taylor in that GoDaddy.co ad.

More morning mix -- including Lindsay Lohan's 'Super' prospects and Charlie Sheen's speedy rehab progress -- after the jump...

Rumor Mill: According to TMZ, Lindsay Lohan -- who is currently trying to dodge felony grand theft charges -- is up for the role of a "major character" in the "Superman" reboot.

Charlie Sheen reportedly "almost done" with rehab and will return to the "Two and a Half Men" set in two weeks.

Eva Longoria spotted canoodling with new boyfriend Eduardo Cruz.

Kelsey and Camille Grammer close to divorce deal, freeing him up to marry girlfriend Kayte Walsh.

New publishing rule: No memoirs from anyone under the age of 35, unless they found the cure for cancer.

I am starting to like Halle Berry less and less. First the insistence that the ex follow her around if he wants to see the kid, now this. I am not sure she really wants to promote the racist "one drop" theory.

Tom Cruise obssessive? Say it ain't so Nicole. Oh I am so disillusioned.

Yo, Nicole Kidman: if you want us to be your therapist, we charge $650/hr. (It's an income-based sliding scale.)


"Bristol Palin's memoirs will be published in June." Betting starts now on how many "shut UP"s will be in my review.


I don't mind celebrities offering us their opinions on who might make the best president, but am dubious of signing up for Halle Berry's Genetics 101 class.


LiLo up for the role of a "major character" in the "Superman" reboot: that of "actress fired shortly after filming begins."


Charlie Sheen reportedly "almost done" with rehab: of course he is. There's almost no coke left in any of his various body cavity stashes.

Nicole's not the only one spilling secrets these days. "The Apostate - Paul Haggis vs. the Church of [$cientolocult]":

(I've noticed that whenever anyone spells out the correct name of the cult here, their organizations worker-bees promptly find it, then troll us with their propaganda]

LiLo will be playing kryptonite.

Who was the most recent person to "pen" a memoir? Ben Franklin? Bristol will thumb her ghost to see if it's done yet.

Wow, a body double for Joan Rivers. One of her is more than enough.

Anyone else been enjoying this little gem of a show on Friday evenings, too?

Charlie Sheen's almost done with rehab? I think he's mixed up "rehab" and "detox".

Poor baby Nahla. Halle, let her decide where she fits into the world. It's okay for her to decide that she's black, and it's okay for her to decide that she's not black, and it's okay for her to decide the whole thing is just artificial categorization anyway. Don't force your view of the world onto her before she's even old enough to know what it means.

Nosy, I read that article yesterday. Long but fascinating & a great read.

I'm sure the $cientolo-crazies are prepping their lawsuit.

I love how their defense against all the former cult members is basically "LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE YOU LIAR MCLIARPANTS!!"

Halle Berry should be ashamed of herself for the reprehensible tactics she is using in her custody fight. The starting point for any divorce/custody fight is equal, shared custody between mother and father. Period!

Betcha that Bristol Palin can't remember the drug-hazed copulative frivolity that accompanied the conception of her son, Tripp.

"One drop" — Really?????????? Step away from the crazy talk, Halle....
