Yeeeaaah Hot

Say cheese - Mother Fucker...

P.S. - what's up with the sexy, flyaway bangs?

sick to his empty core with jew-hatred

The fallout over this whole Mel Gibson fiasco has more than started, and I'm am still absolutely loving it. This morning on The View, Bawbwa Wawas went on a diatribe about how she doesn't usually take a stance on these types of things, but how she will never see another Mel Gibson film. Mega. Now here's the thing - If the rest of Hollywood does not follow suit, I really think that there is something fundamentally wrong here.

Ari Emanuel, a very prominent Hollywood talent agent made an impassioned plea yesterday on The Huffington Post - urging the whole of Hollywood to refuse to work with Gibson -
At a time of escalating tensions in the world, the entertainment industry cannot idly stand by and allow Mel Gibson to get away with such tragically inflammatory statements. When The Passion of the Christ came out, Gibson was quoted as categorically denying any anti-Semitism attributed to him: "For me, it goes against the tenets of my faith, to be racist in any form. To be anti-Semitic is a sin. It's been condemned by one Papal Council after another. There's encyclicals on it, which is, you know -- to be anti-Semitic is to be unchristian, and I'm not."

Now we know the truth. And no amount of publicist-approved contrition can paper it over. People in the entertainment community, whether Jew or gentile, need to demonstrate that they understand how much is at stake in this by professionally shunning Mel Gibson and refusing to work with him, even if it means a sacrifice to their bottom line. There are times in history when standing up against bigotry and racism is more important than money.

Apocalypto, Gibson's new film that is due in December, will certainly (thankfully) suffer from this disaster. Following the monetary success of The Passion of the Anus, Disney had partnered with Gibson and is rumored to have fronted as much as $50 million for the production and promotion of the film. The major question here is whether or not Disney will pull out of the project. My fingers are certainly crossed.

Irrespective of Mel Gibson's personal drama, Apocalypto is never going to be a successful picture. I mean, The Passion of the Anus had a built-in audience of Bible thumpers. This new picture doesn't have that. Its success was meant to be built on Gibson's name and star power. Hah!

For those of you who read Slate, I encourage you to read today's article by Christoper Hitchens - entitled 'Mel Gibson's Meltdown: He is sick to his empty core with Jew-hatred' Yeeeaaah, hot. Here's a little highlight for your enjoyment -
There's a lot to dislike about Gibson. He is given to furious tirades against homosexuals of the sort that make one wonder if he has some kind of subliminal or "unaddressed" problem. His vulgar and nasty movies, which also feature this prejudice, are additionally replete with the cheapest caricatures of the English. Braveheart and The Patriot are two of the most laughable historical films ever made. (Englishmen don't form picket lines outside movie theaters when "stereotyped," but still.) He has told interviewers that his wife, the mother of his children, is going to hell because she subscribes to the wrong Christian sect (a view that he justifies as "a pronouncement from the chair"). And it has been obvious for some time to the most meager intelligence that he is sick to his empty core with Jew-hatred.

This is not just proved by his twistedly homoerotic spank-movie The Passion of the Christ, even though that ghastly production did focus obsessively on the one passage in the one of the four Gospels that tries to convict the Jewish people en masse of the hysterical charge of Christ-killing or "deicide." It is validated by his fealty to his earthly father, a crackpot who belongs to a Catholic splinter group of which our Mel is a member. This group more or less lives off the stench of medieval anti-Semitism. Allow me (as one who has Mel's father's books to hand) to give you an example. In an attempt a few years ago to heal the breach between the Vatican and the Jews, then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger did his best to make nice. Jews did not accept Jesus as savior and redeemer, said the man who is now the pope, but they did originate monotheism. Therefore, Judaism could perhaps be regarded in some ways as an "elder brother" of Christianity. The response of Gibson senior was to say that Abel also had an elder brother. … You know what? I think that this qualifies as anti-Semitism, too.

Oh, and in case you were unaware of Mel Gibson's father and his inherent craziness, here's some delicious background for you -
Hutton Gibson, 87, is a leading proponent of what is called Catholic traditionalism, a canon that rejects the changes to Catholicism made during the Second Vatican Council of 1962-1965, which the elder Gibson once called ''a Masonic plot backed by the Jews.'' Hutton Gibson is also outspoken in his views that the Holocaust never happened, or at least not to the degree that historians maintain. "Go and ask an undertaker or the guy who operates the crematorium what it takes to get rid of a dead body," he told the New York Times in 2003. "It takes one liter of petrol and 20 minutes. Now, 6 million?" Hutton Gibson has appeared at events sponsored by the anti-Semitic, Holocaust-denying Barnes Review and is heralded on anti-Semitic Web sites around the world.
According to Star Magazine, Mel has checked himself into an un-named alcohol rehabilitation center. Yeeeaaah, Malibu Promises! No doubt this move is more of a strategic one - so he can try to avoid the immediate shit storm, and appear remorseful. Whatever, I hope that mother fucker hangs himself with a bed sheet...

don't try this at home!

In case you've recently lapsed into a coma, you are probably aware that it's currently hot as balls. In honor of these lay crazy summer days, I thought that I'd share a few choice video clips that I stumbled upon last night.

Sometimes you can't help but wonder what it is that goes through someone's mind when they try shit like this. I mean, at exactly what point did this guy decide that THIS was a good idea?

When I was in high school, a group of us (on one not so sober afternoon), were jumping on one of those big trampolines. One of the guys did a face plant into the springs, and ended up in the emergency room. Priceless.

happy birthday, bee!

A belated happy 19th birthday (7/29) to my mini-fashionista-boo, Bee Shaffer née Katherine Eleanor Shaffer - daughter of my untimate permaboo, Miss Anna - and scion of the fashion industry. Bee, a rising sophomore at my alma mater, is both beautiful and intelligent - but most importantly, she is one lucky little girl! I mean, seriously - she sits front row at the shows - designers are desperate to dress her, and she counts the de la Rentas, Tom Ford, Zac Posen, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez as close, personal friends.

lady in the water

Ok - I forgot to talk about this last weekend, but Lady in the Water has got to be one of the most bizarre films that I have ever seen. Not in a cool, avant-garde way, but in that M. Night Shyamalan fell asleep at the wheel, kind of way. Seriously though - fucking bizarre. I mean, the premise has a lot of potential - but from pretty early on, the film just kind of makes a mockery of itself.

I think that a lot of people, including myself had anticipated a lot more out of this film. Ever since he hit it big with The Sixth Sense, Shyamalan has been a bit of a let down. I mean, I saw both Signs and The Village - both of which were interesting, but neither of which really lived up to the hype that they had generated.

Oh, and what really kind of bothered me about Lady in the Water, was how M. Night Shyamalan not only cast himself as one of the central characters - but how he cast himself as a prophet - a man who was writing a book that would one day change the face of humanity. Seriously though - I'll take narcissism for $500, Alex.

So before I do any more trash talking, I will say that the film wasn't that bad - it just wasn't that good. I've definitely seen worse. For me, the visual impact of a film is most often what stays with me - and I will say that visually, Lady in the Water was pretty cool. I mean, could Bryce Dallas Howard be any more stunning? There's just something about redheads. It can be très blah, but like Julianne Moore, for instance - when it works, it really works!

that's hot!

Me - Knock Knock

You - Who's There?

Me - Do you know what's TOTALLY HOT?

Umm... that would be - New MotherFucking York!

saved by the bell...

So yeah – I totally watched Saved By The Bell’s E! True Hollywood Story earlier this afternoon, and let me tell you – I don’t consider it to be an hour lost. I consider it to be an hour gained! Of course I was a devoted fan of this hot mess of a show when I was a kid – I was all about Zack Morris! But here’s the thing – how was A.C. Slater’s mullet acceptable? Aside from his turn as Greg Louganis in that horrible made-for-tv movie, I never understood his appeal.

Now I couldn't possibly do a Saved by the Bell posting without actually sharing some of my favorite classic clips, could I? So here - don't say that I never gave you something. The first clip goes without saying. I mean, it’s painfully obvious –

Jessie – Great earrings, Lisa! Ask me anything about Geometry! I’m ready! I’m ready!

Kelly – Jessie, are you alright?

Jessie – Great! Wonderful! Terrific! Check this out! The square of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sums of the square of the other two sides – BABY! Yeah!

Poor Jessie Spano! When I was in 7th or 8th grade, one of my friends gave me and another friend some Vivarin (caffeine pills). I don’t know if I even took one before my mom found the package and interrogated me – as if I, her straight edge, straight-A student, was abusing pills. Also – as if caffeine pills are a gateway drug – I mean, come on! And here’s the thing – for what could I have possibly needed Vivarin – Algebra? Looking back on it, the whole thing is just completely laughable!

Put your mind to it – Go for it – Get down and break a sweat – Rock and roll, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

God - that dance routine clip is just too much. It kind of makes me want to break out my Sweatin’ to the Oldies video! There are two parts of that clip that I particularly enjoy – the first of which is about ten seconds in. Yeah, when it gets all slo-mo, and Lisa Turtle does that retarded cartwheel. My other fave is the ending – when the girls leap into the air and do that whole Toyota leap. You know the one – “I love what you do for me – Toyota!” – a classic television moment!

Oh, God – could the Zack Morris / Kelly Kapowski breakup have been any more melodramatic? Do you remember Patrick Muldoon’s character – that Jeff guy for whom Kelly dumped Zack? I think the whole time I just wanted the two guys to hook up. I mean, fuck Kelly Kapowski – and her pom poms!

1993 was a big year for high school graduations. Don’t forget that that was the same year that Brandon, Brenda and the rest of the 90210 gang graduated from West Beverly. As you can tell from this clip, there really was no Valedictory address on Saved By The Bell - but I vividly remember Andrea Zuckerman’s on 90210. My cousin, Allison also graduated from high school in 93. Her best friend, Jill was Valedictorian of their class and as an inside joke, used the EXACT same address that Andrea Zuckerman had delivered on television about two weeks earlier.

So here’s the thing – if you think about it, there are a few pretty random similarities between 90210 and SBTB.
First off is the obvious cross-pollination between the shows – how, after SBTB, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen went on to star on 90210 for a few years. Also, do you remember when Tori Spelling played Screech’s girlfriend Violet Bickerstaff in some of the earlier SBTB episodes?

Then there was Andrea Zuckerman – who was supposed to attend Yale, as was Zack Morris (strangely enough) – yet both ended up forsaking the Ivy League in favor of ‘California University’? Actually, if you recall, the 90210 gang all went on to attend this fictitious ‘California University’ – which, coincidentally is the same school that played host to Saved By The Bell: The College Years.

In closing I ask you to examine the idea of choosing ‘California University’ over the Ivy League. I mean, as you may recall, that decision did no favors for either Andrea Zuckerman or Zack Morris. Early in her college career, Andrea got knocked up – and Zack, well, his show was cancelled!

the slightly older, white trash sister

Following the embarrassingly awesome written bitch-slap that Lindsay Lohan received a few days ago (go here for details), mother Dina has responded in an interview with Access Hollywood. The interview, conducted by that anus - Billy Bush, will air Monday. Says Dina -

"The wording was ridiculous…maybe he has personal issues with whomever and it came out with my child. I don't know him. I can't judge him. I don't think it was a smart thing to do to a young girl.”

When asked if there was any truth to claims in the letter, Dina came to her daughter's defense saying, "Lindsay was in 105 (degree weather) saying, 'Mommy, I feel sick; like I am going to faint.' She took herself to the hospital. She has asthma and in extreme cold or heat you can't breathe." Dina added, "…I'm a mother and will do what I need to do to protect my child…I don't feel it should be aired out and everyone should know. It's personal."

When asked about accusations in the letter that Lindsay's "…ongoing all night heavy partying" was responsible for her not showing up on set, Dina said, "Lindsay gets to work late, OK… She's a human being. There was one day when she was late and they worked the schedule around her. Garry (Marshall, the film's director), Jane (Fonda, her co-star), everybody loves her."

In regards to Lindsay's status, Dina told Access Hollywood, "As far as Lindsay's health is concerned, she's fine and she is back on set." Dina added to Bush, "She will win an Academy Award for this picture… Justice!"

Umm, so here’s the thing – I get what she’s saying about how Lindsay gets to work late (because she’s a human being, and all), but in the real world, don’t people get warnings (and even fired) all the time for that type of shit? I mean, as a mother Dina is obviously going to want to be protective of her daughter – but from where I sit, she seems more like the slightly older, white trash sister. Oh, and about that whole Academy Award thing - don't get ahead of yourself, Dina - it's embarrassing!

47 lb billionaires

So here’s the thing – I love love love Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I mean, really – how can you not? They each weigh approximately 47 lbs, and they’re billionaires for fuck’s sake! What’s not to love? Also, the girls recently landed a deal as the new face of über-faggoty designer couple Mark Badgley and James Mischka.

Now as much as I like to see these girls polished and well-dressed, I definitely miss that whole bag lady chic look that they used to rock. You know – the filthy oversized rags, 3 scarves, a poncho, huge sunglasses, 17 necklaces and a venti soy latte.

I did a little perusing on youtube to see what kinds of Olsen videos I could find. My search produced nearly a thousand video clips. I did a little digging, and found a few that are particularly enjoyable – and which run the gamut from their days on Full House to a recent appearance on Saturday Night Live.

cute cute cute

It’s no secret that I adore Kelly Ripa. I mean, if you looked up adorable in the dictionary, you would find a picture of her – she is absolutely the definition. She gets paid $7 million each year to be cute alongside Regis – which has got to be the best (and the cushiest) job in all of New York.

I never bought into that whole Hope & Faith thing (not that anyone else did), but I’m quite sure that she was paid well for that also. She has incredible clothes, an amazing apartment downtown, a beautiful home in the Hamptons, and three beautiful children. All this, and she manages to fit into a size 00.

... and can we discuss the husband for a minute? I mean, could he be any hotter? Is that humanly possible? He somehow manages to be even cuter than her - which is no small task.

Oh, and just in case you haven't shot yourself in the face yet - check out how cute they are as a couple. Since I'm not a watcher of soap operas, I never caught them on All My Children, but this Tide commercial is, of course - adorable!

seig heil - you fucking moron!

Jesus motherfucking Christ, it’s been a busy couple of days. This whole Mel Gibson situation just got kicked up about a hundred notches - and I'm fucking loving every second of it! Today TMZ has uncovered a portion of the police report that was filed when Gibson was arrested early Friday morning – and has posted several pages of the report online.

Apparently Mel went on an absolute rampage, swearing uncontrollably, threatening the arresting officer, L.A. County Sheriff’s Deputy James Mee, and hurling anti-Semitic epithets for all to hear. FABULOUS, yeah?

I won’t re-tell the entire story, as you can go here to read about this amazing series of events - which I STRONGLY encourage! I will however, give some of the high points, which include –

“My life is fucked!”

“You motherfucker – I’m going to fuck you!”

“Fucking Jews! The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world!”

“What do you think you’re looking at, sugar tits?”

The arresting officer, Deputy Mee, documented everything in his initial arrest report, but was then instructed by a superior that due to the shocking and explosive nature of the situation (and no doubt due to Gibson’s high profile) the Sheriff’s Department was going to keep this story under wraps. According to TMZ -

Deputy Mee then wrote an eight-page report detailing Gibson's rampage and comments. Sources say the sergeant on duty felt it was too "inflammatory." A lieutenant and captain then got involved and calls were made to Sheriff's headquarters. Sources say Mee was told Gibson's comments would incite a lot of "Jewish hatred," that the situation in Israel was "way too inflammatory." It was mentioned several times that Gibson, who wrote, directed, and produced 2004's "The Passion of the Christ," had incited "anti-Jewish sentiment" and "For a drunk driving arrest, is this really worth all that?"

We're told Deputy Mee was then ordered to write another report, leaving out the incendiary comments and conduct. Sources say Deputy Mee was told the sanitized report would eventually end up in the media and that he could write a supplemental report that contained the redacted information -- a report that would be locked in the watch commander's safe.

Now here’s the thing – Mel Gibson is no stranger to the whole drunk driving thing. He has been arrested in the past, and has been a recovering alcoholic for much of his adult life. Way to stick to the program big boy! He’s also no stranger to being an offensive motherfucker. See The Passion of the Anus for more specifics. Oh, and then there was that whole bullshit that came out regarding his father a few years ago – you know, that whole ‘alleged Holocaust’ thing. BLEW IT OUT!

Earlier today, Mel issued a statement – apologizing for his drunk driving, and what he described as “despicable statements” made towards the arresting officers.

"I acted like a person completely out of control when I was arrested," he said in a statement issued by his publicist. "I disgraced myself and my family with my behavior and for that I am truly sorry. I have battled with the disease of alcoholism for all of my adult life and profoundly regret my horrific relapse."

Apparently his publicist, Alan Nierob would not elaborate on Mel’s comments, and declined further comment. Love - love - love it – and will be patiently waiting for the fantastic and impending backlash! Yeah, Seig Heil – you fucking moron!

japanese lessons

Ok, so my boyfriend needs to learn the Japanese language. His clients are all in Japan, and of course they all know English – but it’s still a sign of respect blah blah blah. I started to do some research. My first thought was pretty obvious – that he could just take a class at Columbia or something. I also saw an infomercial for this program called Rosetta Stone - which takes the teach yourself approach, and has been well reviewed. Then it dawned on me.

I mean obviously, right? Why not get both your workout and your Japanese lessons out of the way in one shot. Now if only they had these videos that taught Japanese rather than English, we’d be set. Someone needs to call Jane Fonda - and stat!

Oh, and you can also use this program in lieu of a self-defense course. AMAZING!

driving under the influence

SHIT SHIT, DOUBLE SHIT. Today just keeps getting better and better. Tinseltown is just buzzing with crazy scoop. Yes my friends, Mel Gibson – that Jesus freak who championed that dumb film, The Passion of The Anus, was arrested early this morning for Driving Under the Influence – also known as DUI. According to TMZ
Mel Gibson was arrested by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department in Malibu, Calif. early this morning for suspicion of DUI. Bail was set at $5,000.

He was pulled over on the Pacific Coast Highway and a Breathalyzer test was administered. The arrest report lists the time of arrest as 2:36AM and the time booked as 4:06AM. A spokesman for the Los Angeles Country Sheriff's Department told TMZ, "Mel Gibson was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. He was released later this morning. The investigation was still ongoing, just like it would be with any other person."

Calls to Gibson's rep were not immediately returned.

Gibson, whose next movie, Apocalypto is due this Christmas – is a self-righteous asshat. But then again, you know those crazy Catholics - they love the sauce!

oh, snap!

Oh SHIT, I love random Friday afternoon drama. Yeah, I’m a big fan. So get this – earlier this week it was reported that Lindsay Lohan was hospitalized in Los Angeles after suffering from heat stroke and exhaustion on the set of her new movie, ‘Georgia Rule’.

Today The Smoking Gun published a letter (above), in which the CEO of the production company, Morgan Creek Productions, completely called Lindsay out on her bullshit –

“We are well aware that your ongoing all night heavy partying is the real reason for your so called ‘exhaustion’. We refuse to accept bogus excuses for your behavior... You have acted like a spoiled child and in so doing have alienated many of your co-workers and endangered the quality of this picture." (Oh, SNAP!)

Now here’s the thing – this is a pretty big film. It’s being directed by Garry Marshall, and it's co-starring both Jane Fonda and Felicity Huffman. To add insult to injury, the story line is about a rebellious, uncontrollable teenager - who is played by who else, but Lindsay Lohan. The ball is definitely in Lindsay’s court, and it’s going to be pure entertainment seeing how this all plays itself out. Point, Duff.

kiss and make up?

Ok, so I know that I’ve mentioned it on numerous occasions, but I have long been of the opinion that the alleged rift between NicRichie and Trash is total bunk. Recently E! announced that the girls would be returning for yet another season of The Simple Life.

...and guessing from this picture, it would appear that NicRichie and Trash have already started with the promotional photos - and Trash has never looked better! In related news, rumor has it that the girls may be ‘making up’ officially on Letterman. According to sources

Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie are set to publicly end their two-year-old feud as guests of US chat show king David Letterman. The beloved TV host has offered to play peacekeeper after inviting The Simple Life stars to appear together on his The Late Show programme in September.

The two former pals fell out amid reports Richie aired a private viewing of Hilton's controversial sex tape. Both girls have refused to go into detail about their bust-up, with Hilton repeatedly telling journalists: "She knows what she did." Hilton and Richie agreed to team up on TV again for the third season of reality show The Simple Life - but refused to work together onscreen.
Also, can we discuss how the media has recently been commenting on NicRichie's upcoming album as if it's some new development, and as if she is simply copying Trash. Other bloggers have even been adding fuel to the fire. Is it just me, or is this kind of strange? I mean, I remember NicRichie talking about recording an album all the way back during the first season of The Simple Life - long before Trash ever mentioned it.

real convincing

Oh Lance - poor, dear, sweet, faggoty Lance... real convincing.


I'm convinced!

gay gay gayer than pink suede

For those of you working stiffs who don't get to enjoy morning television - here is the clip of Kathy Griffin's appearance yesterday on The View.

My fingers are crossed that she wins the Emmy - because I want to hear that acceptance speech! Also, for those of you who find yourselves a little antsy this afternoon - you know, ready for the weekend - I strongly suggest that you head on over to KG's website and check out the forums section. Gay Gay Gayer than pink suede. Gayer than Lance Bass... even gayer than Ryan Seafag!

hollywood - 2026

What will Hollywood look like in 2026, you ask? Well head on over to the US Weekly site to find out. Here’s the thing – Lourdes will need an appointment with my girl Janna at Sothys, as well as a plastic surgeon. Sean Preston (if he makes it that long) will already have fathered 5 kids of his own, and Maddox will be delivering my take-out. Little Coco Arquette will read tarot cards and will have some blown out hippie store in Santa Monica. Oh, and Apple will likely pick up a cocaine addiction in boarding school, as well as a few choice STDs.

sexy hair

While we’re still discussing today's episode of The View - Katharine McPhee also sat with the ladies this morning - as guest co-host. She has been suffering from laryngitis and bronchitis for the past few weeks, but has been cleared by her physicians, and will be joining Crazy, as well as both Kevin Covais and Bucky Covington on that dreaded American Idol tour tonight in Pittsburgh. I’m sure she’s totally stoked – totally.

Yesterday at the Ritz-Carlton in New York, Katharine announced her new partnership as the new celebrity face of Sexy Hair – which I had never heard of. Rumor has it that the deal is extremely lucrative.

kg on the view

As some of you may or may not know, Kathy Griffin’s previous appearances on The View haven't always gone so well, so it was a bit of a surprise to see her on the show this morning. At one point, That Stupid Cunt Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked KG if, after talking so much shit, she ever gets scared about running into celebrities.
That Stupid Cunt - Don't you ever fear, like the stuff you say about celebrities cause My Life on the D-List, you're constantly, like making fun of celebrities. I would think you'd at least have a little bit of fear in you. No?

Kathy Griffin - You know, there's no rhyme or reason to it. Sometimes I get nervous. I get a call from somebody and I'm like 'uh, what do they want?' I was in a night club and Mary-Kate Olsen wanted to talk to me. I said 'uh, this could go either way!'

Katharine McPhee - Yeah, like when you see them at a party, you know?

Kathy Griffin - Yeah, like when I see Mary-Kate and I'm like 'what's up, fat ass?' - like, does she think it's funny... or not? It's up to her. It's her choice!
She and Bawbwa Wawas also had a pretty comical back-and-forth this morning about Kathy thinking that she had been banned from the show. Check out this clip to see just why that may have been -

fred phelps, jr.

Ok, so by now most people are aware of the Westboro Baptist Church – you know, that whole ‘God Hates Fags’ group that was founded by that nutbag, Fred Phelps. Last month I posted a phenomenal clip of Fred’s daughter, Shirley Phelps-Roper sounding off and foaming at the mouth of Fox News. If you missed this clip, I strongly recommend that you go back and take a look!

Check out another phenomenal clip - this time of an Australian reporter flirting with Fred Phelps son - also known as Fred Phelps, Jr. at one of their rallies. Hilarity ensues.

father figure / preacher teacher?

Ok – so the wedding is evidently back on. George Michael phoned up Richard & Judy (think Regis & Kelly) yesterday to discuss his recent sex-capades. According to the Daily Mail

He said he and Mr. Goss recently celebrated their 10th anniversary and he had given his lover a £1 million present to mark the milestone. "We had a lovely 10th anniversary party and actually my 10th anniversary present to him cost me a million quid so I reckon I should get away with more then. I would actually have to do something he dislikes before the wedding was off."

The News of the World reported that Michael was caught kissing and groping van driver Norman Kirtland. The pop star admitted he had no idea who the man was but insisted he was not ashamed of his actions. "There can't be shame in a situation unless the person is ashamed and I'm certainly not that," he said. He said it was sad that words like "depravity" and "shame" were used by the media in relation to cruising.

"I think it's deeply and ethically wrong that young people can be exposed to that kind of language," he said. The singer, who was cautioned for possessing cannabis in February after being found slumped at the wheel of a car at Hyde Park Corner in central London, denied he was "troubled". He said: "I don't want people to think my life is troubled when it's not. I think I should be able to be what I am to young gay people, a man who's managed to succeed in the industry for 25 years."

Here’s the thing – OF COURSE the wedding is back on. I mean, obviously – right?!? But here’s the other thing – I know I’m a prude, but I find it completely laughable when people purport to be in some fantastic relationship, and then constantly cheat on each other and think that it’s perfectly ok. If you were so in love, I wouldn’t think that you would neither want nor need to be having hideous anonymous sex romps in the woods. Maybe it’s just me.

Although here's another thing - do you think that maybe George was only trying to find himself a father figure - you know, a little preacher teacher? I mean, how else do you explain something like this away?

kermit's new modest lifestyle

Oh for fuck’s sake – this is just embarrassing, Spelling clan! Get it together! Since the death of Aaron Spelling, reports have been swirling. First we hear that Candy has secretly put the house up for sale – which she fervently denied. Then we hear about how Candy has her vajayjay in a twist, and that Kermit is going to be cut out of the will. Last week the story was that Kermit would indeed inherit a significant portion of the $500 million fortune. Now it seems that that may not be the case. According to the new issue of Us Weekly -

Despite reports that Tori Spelling would inherit millions from her father’s $500 million estate, Us has learned exclusively that the actress, 33, will get just 0.16 % of the Spelling fortune. Tori’s share – a cash inheritance payment of $200,000, combined with approximately $600,000 in private investments her dad set up for her – is a brush-off Aaron Spelling would never have intended for his only daughter, says a family source.

“I believe Candy had a lot to do with what was left for Tori,” the source says of Tori’s mother, who is sole managing executor of the estate. (Candy’s rep had no comment.)

How much will brother Randy inherit? Why are Candy’s interior decorator and manicurist in the will? For more details on this story and Tori’s new modest lifestyle (which includes playing the lotto and shopping at pawnshops), check out the current issue of Us, on newsstands this week.

Excuse me, a new modest lifestyle? I spotted this bitch shopping in the Home department at Barneys not so long ago, and she seemed to be doing just fine. All that aside, how hot is the picture of Kermit and husband outside of the pawn shop!?! Love it!

In other Kermit news, my fellow fans of 90210 can look forward to seeing the show on DVD. The first seasons of both 90210 and Melrose Place have finally been slated for a November 7 DVD release. That’s hot!
