Remembering Michael Jackson

Source: blackorwhite.nl
It's been nearly a full week since Michael Jackson died and I have refrained from posting about it because I really didn't have anything of note to say. I felt the typical sadness you feel when you hear of someone who dies too young, but honestly . . . I wasn't surprised that Michael Jackson had died of a relatively young age.

Last Saturday, I caught about an hour or so of nothing but Michael Jackson videos, interviews and clips on something like MTV or VH1. That was when it hit me. Tremendous, heavy sadness.

Sadness over the loss of the Michael Jackson that was never allowed to be. The genuine little boy with the musical and dancing talents that was estinguished by family demands, the pressures of superstardom and the various enablers that accompanied him throughout the years.

Watching his old videos it's hard to reconcile that Michael Jackson with the veiled, phobic Michael Jackson of recent years.

I hope and pray that Michael Jackson finds the peace in death that he was sorely robbed off in life.

Farrah Fawcett 1947-2009

Earlier today, Farrah Fawcett lost her 2 year long battle with cancer.

Rest in peace, Farrah. You were an inspiration to many, you never lost your grace or good humor and you will be missed.

Is it the End of the Dream?

For all the TomKat fans left out there (yes, all 11 or so of you), you might want to get yourselves a big vat of Haagen Daz Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough to dive into and soothe away your distress at the thought of the most amazing couple ever to use amazing more times than Websters living on separate coasts.

No, not an "official" announcement yet but seriously . . . am I the only person around that thinks these two hate each others' asses?

Sooooo . . . apparently there's a doorman in New York (block of west 12th Street in the Village) that should probably be watching his back for an angry little leprechaun in 5 inch sneakers and atrocious pit stains who may not be happy that said doorman is blabbing that Mr. Cruise purchased a brownstone at 42 W. 12th for his mousy missus.

The 8,100 square foot digs were bought for a mere $15 mil by an LLC and confidentiality agreements changed hands so the buyer(s) obviously wanted to keep things hush-hush.

Truth be told, the doorman may not have said that the buyer was Mr. Cruise in so many words, but according to The Village Voice, he did say that the buyer wouldn't be in New York much as he would be filming in L.A. a lot and he bought the house for his wife, who was in a Broadway show. Hmmm . . .

DVD Pick: Xanadu

Xanadu is one of those rare movies that is so awful in every aspect, it's enjoyably good. Where to begin? The writing is awful, the dialogue is awful, the acting (with the exception of Gene Kelly) is awful, the costumes are awful. It's frightening to think that somewhere in L.A. in 1979-1980, there sat a film executive thinking "We'll take Olivia Newton-John, roller skating, ELO, the 1940s and the 1980s, mash it all together, make it into a musical and we'll have a hit!"

Xanadu is centered on Sonny, an artist who paints giant reproductions of album covers (they used to be hung outside of music stores back in the day). Sonny (played with unbelievable blandness by Michael Beck) is unhappy and wants to really do something with his creativity. Apparently his "woe-is-me" moment conjures up the mystical nine muses of Greek mythology - - they actually come to life on a painted mural in Venice Beach, to the snappy tune of ELO's "I'm Alive" -- but as soon as the tune is over, the ladies disperse to various parts of the globe, where apparently their divine intervention is needed. Only Kira (Olivia Newton-John) stays behind in L.A. to help Sonny become more than just an album painter. With the help of former bandleader Danny (Gene Kelly), Sonny plans to open a new nightclub in an abandoned Art Deco building - - by blending Danny's 1940s style and music with his own 1980s godawful designs, synthesizers and roller skates. Kira is on standby to look pretty, break into song when necessary and participate in the musical numbers.

This film has so many elements in it you wonder if either the film project changed hands many times before production, or the entire crew was on some sort of hallucinogenic drug. We understand why Kira is on roller skates almost every time you see her - - after all, it is 1980 and the height of the roller boogie fad. We understand, maybe, why Kira is attired in glam-peasant girl gear - - after all, she just popped off a wall. We understand, even, why Gene Kelly took this film role - - had to be money. But why on earth did the filmmakers find it necessary to demean Kelly with the terrible glitz-inspired fashion sequence toward the end, where he looks like nothing but an over-the-hill pimp? And why, if Kira was such an inspirational muse who apparently inspired Danny some thirty-five years before, could she not inspire Sonny/Michael Beck to inject some life into his role? What could have possibly made the director think that a cartoon/animated sequence in the middle of the film, with Kira and Sonny turned into various fish, made sense?

And yet, even as frightening as some of these images are, the film is strangely addictive and enjoyable. You cannot possibly watch Xanadu without tapping your foot or simply jumping up and dancing along to ELO's oh-so-early 80s tunes. You can't watch without smiling over how dorky everyone looked on roller skates back in 1980. You can't watch and not shake your head in amazement over the fact that Sonny and Danny's 1940s meets 1980s nightclub/rollerskating club will probably fail miserably and make them social outcasts in L.A. (not to mention, probably getting Kira fired from her job as a wall muse).

But, watch it you must - - if you are a fan of Olivia Newton-John, you will love seeing her at the height of her radiant beauty and listening to the catchy "Magic" and title "Xanadu" songs. For the classic film fan, this is Gene Kelly in his last film performance. The scene with him and Newton-John dancing together, and singing a 40s-era inspired song is sweet and a reminder to what a treasure he was to Hollywood. But the main reason to watch - - to see bad, bad cinema at its absolute finest. Highly recommended.

They Make It So Easy

Ah, life's sweet mysteries. How Katie Holmes continues to grow while her husband shrinks. Where Tom buys his man heels. Why these two are still in the news.

Regardless, I'm grateful because they give me so much snark. Take this, for instance. Tom and Katie at "their good friend" Cameron Diaz's Hollywood Star ceremony. Yes, ceremony. Tom and Katie are decidedly casual, no? Did Katie forget to set her alarm clock because homegirl looks like she didn't wash her hair, much less brush and style it. So maybe she's going with the understated, less is more approach. Still, no excuse for wearing a pair of pants that is suffering from water stains, rinse cycle rippage and the crime of being two sizes too small. Look, Katie, your arms may be a size zero but those legs sure ain't.

And doesn't Tom look thrilled to be there? Reminds me of the good old days when Prince Charles was such a peach in public with his bride, Diana. After both of them were cheating and after the media clearly took her side. Makes you think, doesn't it?

Interesting that Tom and Katie are at a ceremony honoring one of the people that comes close to the two of them in my book as far as sheer annoyance goes. Back in the day (when There's Something About Mary came out) I liked Cameron Diaz for a quick minute. But then homegirl got all uppity about her "fame" and her "craft" and started to get a reputation for preaching to people of questionable tastes (otherwise known as her fans) as to why they should not ask her or any other celebrity for an autograph and this was before she started dating that equally annoying shit Justin Timberlake. Ugh.

Cameron Diaz is annoying, yes. But I'm sure homegirl was even saying "What the fuck are they doing here?"

Johnny Depp, Sigh

Really, doesn't the title just say it all?

As you should know, Johnny Depp's new movie Public Enemies opens on July 1. Enemies did most of its shooting in Chicago and, as such, had a big premiere in Chicago last night.

Most of the awaiting crowd were calling for Johnny. Of course they were. Johnny greeted the crowd, starting with the back of the line, taking photos, and chatting with people that had spent hours waiting for just the chance to see him, much less meet him. He spent so much time, in fact, that the start of the movie was delayed.

This is one of many reasons I love Johnny Depp so much. Johnny Depp is humble. Johnny Depp appreciates his fans. Johnny Depp is grateful that people want to see his movie. Johnny Depp believes he owes it to people who spend hours waiting in line to see him and his movie a little bit of his personal time.

So, so, so many actors/actresses/so-called celebrities could learn so, so, so very much from Johnny Depp. Besides the obvious talent, this is why Johnny Depp will never, ever be a flash in the pan.

Love him.

Remember, Public Enemies opens on July 1. Go see it and support Johnny Depp. Reward him for his kindness and generosity.

Prepare for the Audio and Visual Assault

Not Bigfoot, it's Katie Holmes at "dance rehearsals"

In preparation for the next phase of her career (hey, the ubiquitous source's words, not mine), Katie Holmes will be guesting on So You Think You Can Dance.

Wait, it gets better. Not only will the uber-talented and much in demand Ms. Holmes forsake all the other scripts and offers pouring in her office by the hour (as "sources" would like us to think) in order to "return to t.v.!" but she will be performing Judy Garland's infamous "Get Happy" routine.

First, "source" = Tom Cruise. Second, I think Judy Garland suffered enough in life and I think Liza Minnelli has suffered enough. Does she need to be subjected to the memory of her mother being disgraced by a bulimic, ill-dressed and poorly shamarried wanna-be "starlet" whose last flirtation with a song and dance routine got Eli Stone cancelled? Didn't think so.

I don't watch SYTYCD. However, I have no doubt that the average beach performer (you know, the dudes at places like the Promenade in Santa Monica who sing and dance for your spare change) would put Katie Holmes to shame. Forget the whole lacking talent thing. Homegirl has as much sex appeal as a Chia pet. Correct that. She actually has less. I find the Chia pet more stimulating than Mrs. Tom Cruise. And ten bucks says so does Tom.

AnytheCruisemarriageisatotalshamway, there is no airdate yet for this blatant stunt casting but get your DVRs at the ready, purchase some ear plugs and whip up those Niacin smoothies!

Sex on a Stick Beats Edward Fucking Cullen

Source: celebitchy

In a poll sure to leave Twilight fans stunned and ready to storm Buckingham Palace, Prince Harry was named Britain's most eligible bachelor, beating out Robert Pattinson (who placed second), Daniel Craig and Guy Ritchie (huh?) among others.

A bit OT but about Daniel Craig . . . I totally get it. I didn't understand it until I saw him as James Bond. And I was with the dozens of other idiots who couldn't picture him as Bond, and who could never visualize a blonde Bond. Why? I have absolutely no idea. But Daniel Craig definitely brings the goods, particularly for those of us in the 35 and over crowd.

I have no problem with Prince Harry winning this poll because, well, vampires may not be everyone's cup of tea, but who can argue with a prince?

No word on where Prince William placed on the poll.

Kyra Sedgwick Gets a Star

Source: CDAN

I love Kyra Sedgwick. I really do. She makes The Closer into the phenomenal show it truly is.

Ever watch it? If you don't, you should. The writing is terrific and Sedgwick's chemistry with all her co-stars is authentic. And one of the best things, Sedgwick is playing a character in her late 30s/early 40s who is happy with her career and with being childless. Hooray! A leading character who isn't defective or feels that something is missing because she's not adding to the baby brigade.
Anyhow, on Monday, Kyra got a much deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Her star is placed next to her hubby, Kevin Bacon's.
If nothing else, Kyra and Kevin deserve special awards for being married nearly 21 years . . . a lifetime in Hollywood.
Congrats, Kyra!

Jessica Alba Needs a Map

Dumb bitch pride! Source: DListed
I am not a fan of Jessica Alba's. She is basically one of a thousand Hollywood "actresses" who look great in a bikini but don't want to be cast for their looks and want to be taken as a serious ar-TEEST. Yeah, whatever. I say if you can get jobs in a cutthroat industry because you're genetically blessed, be thankful and go with it. Farrah Fawcett became uber-popular because of a bathing suit poster; only later was she taken as a serious actress.

The difference, however, between Farrah and Ms. Alba is that Ms. Alba has a reputation in Hollywood for being one of the biggest Cee yoU Next TuesdayS in town. And with a town like Hollywood, that says alot.

Apparently not only is Ms. Alba a bitch on wheels and delusional (at least as far as her current career prospects are concerned), she's also a fucking idiot.

Case in point. Ms. Alba is in Oklahoma City shooting a pic titled The Killer Inside Me. She apparently spent a day off running around the city, plastering shark posters everywhere. Because Ms. Alba is concerned about the dwindling Great White shark population.

While I don't knock anyone for their charitable and/or humanitarian activities (although who really gives a flying fuck about a big fish that would devour you in two seconds as an appetizer) I don't think the citizens of Oklahoma City spend their free time hitting the waters to massacre Great White sharks, or any type of shark. Seeing as how the state of Oklahoma is fairly well land locked and all.

To further eff up this gaffe, in her frenzy to save the Great White Ms. Alba covered up a billboard for the United Way, causing some United Way rep to bemoan the fact that the billboard will probably have to be replaced.

Send Jessica Alba the bill! She's such an important and successful serious actress. I'm sure she can pay for it. Of course that means she'll have to take away Cash's allowance for the week but I think the people at United Way will really appreciate it.

So . . . Jessica Alba issued an apology of sorts,claiming some type of gang mentality where she got all caught up in the moment when she associated with the Save the Great White group of activists. She also said that she should have used better judgment, which may be the most intelligent thing she has ever said.

Johnny Depp is Having a Birthday

Forty-six years ago today, Baby Jesus cried perfect little tattooed tears and allowed the world to be blessed by the perfectness that is Johnny Depp.

Shouldn't it be a sin for a man to be this perfect, this luscious?

Happy, happy birthday, Johnny Depp. May you continue to inspire us with your existence and may you continue to entertain us on screen and may Vanessa Paradis realize just how lucky she is. (And if she doesn't, I'm sure my husband would understand if you knocked at our door).
More photos of Johnny Depp . . . just because.

A Psychedelic Experience = Adam Fucking Lambert

Source: Rolling Stone
The new issue of Rolling Stone is here and all the birds are chirping, the rainbows are bright, the little forest creatures are doing a happy dance because the gloriousness of Adam Fucking Lambert is shining on its cover.

Adam is black on black on black with the exception of the bright green snake wrapped around his leg and headed for a very sensitive spot of his anatomy . . . next to a butterfly. Why question? Just enjoy the beauty that is Adam.

Adam admits that he's gay (duh!) but did not want to publicly come out immediately after the Idol finale because "I didn’t want the Clay Aiken thing and the celebrity-magazine bullshit." Ha! Take that, Clay Aiken. The Prince of Snarkness has his black nails sharpened and is coming after you, girl!

Adam also says that he had a "psychedelic experience" at Burning Man which made him realize that American Idol was the way to get himself noticed and taken seriously. Success! He also says that during his run on Idol, ”I was like, ‘I’m going to glue rhinestones on my eyelids, bitch!’"

Rolling Stone hits the stands this week.

Susan Atkins Gets Another Parole Hearing

Source: latimes.com
Convicted murderer, Manson follower and blood lover Susan Atkins has been granted another parole hearing date, after the May 29, 2009 hearing was postponed. Unofficially, it's been rumored that parole hearing officers were unavailable at the end of May but that sounds a little sketchy to me. Atkins is reportedly terminally ill with brain cancer, bedridden and with one leg amputated. I would guess the Parole Board is hoping that before the new date, Atkins will be off to meet her maker, so they won't have to make a decision that is going to either inflame her supporters or her detractors.

Her new hearing date is September 2.

I still stand by my earlier assertions that life in prison should mean just that - - life in prison.

Adam F. Lambert Sighting!

Adam and his brilliance were only scheduled for an hour long appearance but fans wishing to be touched by the voice that makes Baby Jesus cry golden tears of happiness and sparkle kept Mr. Fucking Lambert at the soiree for four hours.

And, duh, Adam got the Young Hollywood Artist of the Year award. As if anyone else could beat out the singer who made "Ring of Fire" an aphrodisiac.

In related news, Clay Aiken sat at home sticking his Adam voodoo doll with a pin, while listening to the Madame Butterfly soundtrack.

Megan Fox Needs to Shut Up For the Good of Humanity

Source: backseatcuddler.com

I'm not a man but I suppose I can understand the attraction of Megan Fox. In my opinion, she is a poor man's Angelina Jolie (in your face sexual with a lot of tattoos), only less intelligent and with less (screen) talent.

With Transformers 2 coming out this summer, she's making the rounds of the interview circuits and for the good of everyone, I think she should just keep her mouth shut. Homegirl is stupid - - or S-T-U-P-I-D as Aminat from America's Next Top Model would say.

To GQ (UK), she said that all actors are basically prostitutes and she thinks it's "gross" that she gets paid millions to basically make out with a series of guys. What I notice is that, like massive dickhead Sean Penn, she doesn't claim to turn down the paycheck of such a "gross" job. And anyone feel free to correct me but last time I checked, Megan Fox wasn't being forced to be a prostitute, I mean actress, against her will. Technicalities.

You know, I really hate celebrities that try to act enlightened and like they are somehow so much smarter than the rest of the general population (particularly when many of them barely finished high school, much less any higher education). Aforementioned dickhead Sean Penn is a master at this. Ditto Tom Cruise. Add Megan Fox to the list. If she is so grossed out by what she does for a living, then quit. It's not a difficult solution.

So Professor Fox also goes on to say that she found Sex and the City: The Movie "tragic", that Hollywood comedies are "total garbage" and that "fame doesn't mean anything because anyone can be famous".

I have no idea why she found Sex and the City tragic because I loved it, but she is an idiot so I'll let that one go. True, some Hollywood comedies are indeed garbage but I think she's making the comment because she's primarily known as the sexy girl in action movies. Maybe Ms. Fox got turned down for a comedy? And that last statement is golden with irony. I think that pretty much describes Megan Fox's fame to a T.

She also goes on to push for legalization of marijuana and openly state she smokes weed. Personally, Megan Fox seems to be one of those type of people who smoke weed because they think it's cool - - the same reason she probably gets all her fugly ass tattoos. She wants to be seen as this cool, hard chick - - you know, don't hate her because she's pretty.

If Megan Fox's publicist has half an ounce of brain function, he or she will shut Megan down immediately. Let her pose for her cheesecake pictures (because, really, isn't that all she's good for?) and otherwise, tell her to shut her piehole.

Get Her Number, Tom!

Source: huffingtonpost.com and CDAN

Janine Sugawara is the perfect woman for Tom Cruise. Why, you ask? Because Janine is suing Cap'n Crunch in Federal Court for fraud because he lied to her for years about Crunchberries not being a real berry. No, really. I couldn't make up stuff this good.

Apparently Janine ate Crunchberry cereal daily for four years and actually believed that she was eating a healthy, nutritious breakfast with the exotic fruit known as a crunchberry. I suppose the "sweetened corn and oat cereal" label on the box, along with "limited edition - candies-n-more" escaped Janine's eagle eye.

Because of this, Janine is the perfect woman for Tom! She didn't realize Crunchberries weren't real fruits so she obviously won't realize that Tom Cruise IS. She is not the most astute noter of detail so she probably won't notice when her pretty princess dresses are missing, or question why her red stilettos are in Tom's closet.

Forget Katie, Tom. That's not working out. Katie is too sharp (and too shitty of an actress) to make this whole "I love females" thing work for you. She would never fall for Crunchberries being real - - after all, she doesn't appear to eat.

And if you're interested, the judge in brilliant Janine's case dismissed her suit, basically saying that any person with an ounce of common sense would realize that Crunchberries are not real fruit and Cap'n Crunch is fairly obvious in that its main ingredient is sugar. I'm sure Janine's attorneys are seeking out their next mentally challenged plaintiff - - they lost a previous case representing a plaintiff who believed in the real fruit of Froot Loops.

LeAnn Rimes is Above the Fray

Sources: ohmygod.yahoo.com; myclassiclyrics.com

Or so says her spokesperson, where it relates to her extramarital activities with also-married actor Eddie Cibrian.

LeAnn and Eddie co-starred on a Lifetime movie a few months back and were caught playing tonsil hockey at an L.A. restaurant - - obviously without their respective spouses in tow. The pictures of the two kissing made the tabloid rounds and were news for a few days before the storm seemed to blow over. Until . . . LeAnn and Eddie were spotted having drinks together at a bar at the Staples Center during an L.A. Lakers game. Duh! Either this was a publicity ploy because, let's face it, LeAnn and Eddie are both probably C-list celebs, or these two are a pair of the dumbest cheaters in history.

Eddie's wife, Brandi Glanville, has now gone personally to US Weekly and labelled LeAnn a crazy homewrecking stalker. She claims that LeAnn is constantly texting and calling Eddie -- without explanation, of course, as to why Eddie doesn't change his number. Not that I'm blaming Eddie fully if he is being harassed but hey, if you stick your hand in the crazy cookie jar you may bring back a cookie full of nuts.

Brandi also says that she isn't a scorned wife but a happy wife fighting for what she has. Well, I have to say that if my husband was poking his penis where it didn't belong, I wouldn't exactly label myself or my marriage a "happy" one, but that's just me.

Brandi further tells US Weekly that "LeAnn is a stalker… She refuses to leave us alone — it is shameful and scary. People are going to say it takes two to tango and I get that, but at some point LeAnn needs to stop asking him to dance. LeAnn is so desperate for fame she has left her self-respect in the gutter and doesn’t care who she hurts to get what she wants. She’s hurting my family and messing with the wrong mom.”

I do not condone cheating at all. There is absolutely no excuse for it in my book. I feel sorry for Brandi because no wife deserves that - - but I also question her going to the press. I understand her spite toward LeAnn but it does seem Eddie was a willing participant. And again, why doesn't he change his cell phone number?

LeAnn has answered Brandi's accusations by sending her spokesperson to People magazine and stating “These comments are incredibly defamatory. While there are always two sides to every story, LeAnn continues to remain above the fray and chooses not to play this out in the press.”

Hmmm, so LeAnn is too high and mighty and classy to answer Brandi's charges thru the press (although not too high and mighty and classy to cheat with another woman's husband and father of that woman's children) according to her spokesperson who gave the statement to the press?

And by claiming such comments are defamatory, they are not so subtly suggesting that Brandi could find herself being sued if she's not careful. If indeed LeAnn is calling and texting Eddie repeatedly, and in a manner that he doesn't welcome, Brandi shouldn't have any legal worries.

I did note, though, that LeAnn's spokesperson didn't deny that LeAnn had indeed "messed" with Eddie. Not a single comment about how Eddie and LeAnn were simply co-workers or had worked together on a project.

I really don't care what Eddie has to say about all this -- he's a cheater and he'd best keep his mouth shut, his pants zipped up and kiss his wife's ass -- but I am curious as to what LeAnn's husband would have to say. He's been in Nashville, apparently, while LeAnn has been stalking Eddie in L.A., if Brandi is to be believed. So is he hiding from the press? Or do he and LeAnn have an understanding and he's just doing his thing while she's doing hers?

As if such a minor, irrelevant thing as who the Intergalactic Overlord of the-Magical, Sprite-Laden-Forests-that-Paula-Abdul-Luxuriates-In chooses to cuddle up with is so vital and important (not to mention patently obvious), Adam Fucking Lambert was seen minus his spectacular KISS-style platform boots and winged costume at a showing of "Guys and Dolls" in West Hollywood on Monday night.

Oh yeah, he was also holding hands with a dude that can seriously rock the skinny jeans. Is this the lucky man that Adam croons and shrieks to?

Supposedly Adam F. Lambert will be Rolling Stone's August cover boy, officially and publicly outing himself. (Like this is news, honestly, to anyone over the age of 12).

On a related note, just wanted to mention that Clay Aiken has been quiet after that verbal smackdown by the Prince of Snarkness (if you recall, Adam was just glad that Clay was finally getting some publicity). Don't dish it out against the brilliance and dazzle, Clay. You won't win.

"Sean Penn is a Dick" Stories are Still Coming

Source: contactmusic.com

I swear, I think I could practically devote my blog to "Sean Penn is a dickhead" posts and make it just fine. Or at least "(Fill in the blank with a celebrity name) is a dickhead".

But let's get back to the King of Dickbags. Mike Walker from The National Enquirer (again!) is claiming that when King Dickbag left his wife Robin back in April to file for divorce (again!), he told her the old song and dance about how things weren't working out (amazing how that happens when one spouse is putting his penis inside someone else's vajayjay) and he could envision himself meeting someone new and starting a new family with them. Allegedly, Robin was so pissed (and rightfully so) that she took off her wedding ring and threw it at him. (He got off lightly, in my book). King Dickbag then told Robin that she was acting like a child.

Oh now that's rich. Robin is acting like a child? What a douchey move.

Granted, this is coming from The Enquirer so take it with a grain of salt and all that . . .but I believe it. Penn has proven himself time and again to be one of the least well-mannered, respectful and polite celebrities out there and he certainly appeared to attend the same monogamy/fidelity/faithfulness class that Charlie Sheen was/is a member of. I could totally hear him saying something this unkind and thoughtless to his wife and I could also see him trying to turn it around and make her the immature, assy one regardless of her response.

I suggest that next time Robin pick up a kitchen utensil and hurl that at her mouthy spouse the next time he makes such a fucktard remark. Then call me, girlfriend, and I'll help you spend half his money.

Is Brangelina Done?

Source: jaunted.com
And if so, why do we care so much?

According to The National Enquirer, the greatest love story of the century (other than TomKat) and spawning the greatest number of children (other than in the Mia Farrow household) has run its course. Gasp! Brad and Angie have actually split!

Some unnamed (aren't they always unnamed) source claims that the split is "official" (the difference being?) and that Brad and Angelina will make appearances together from time to time (like Prince Charles and Princess Diana?) and he will meet up with the kids whenever his schedule allows.

That sounds suspicious to me. Brad seems to be very much into his kids and it sounds pretty cold to make it sound like Brad is organizing business meetings with them.

I'm not sure that Brad and Angie are truly broken up right now - - they do spend quite a bit of time apart due to their filming schedules and I do think at some point the relationship will come to an end. Mainly because Angie's track record isn't great and they did meet and become involved while Brad was still married, whether he and J.A. were truly and actually separated at that time or not. (And isn't that what all married people say when they get involved? The marriage is always "over in everything but name" or they are always "actually separated at the time").

The National Enquirer has had a spotty record in the past but they do tend to nail things as well so I guess we'll have to see how this plays out.

Is Melissa Joan Hart a Colossal Bitch?

Source: DListed
I never watched Sabrina the Teenage Witch but Melissa Joan Hart always struck me as a fairly down to earth, likable kind of person. Surprising then to read today that MJH was overheard at L.A.'s KTLA studio telling someone that she hoped Farrah Fawcett wouldn't die and knock her off the cover of People magazine.

MJH was promoting not only her People cover ("How I Lost 42 Pounds!") but her newest business venture, a candy/yogurt store called "Sweetharts".

Even if MJH made the comment in a lighthearted manner, just in jest, it seems incredibly tacky and rude. Is she really so desperate for the cover of People, for heaven's sake, that she would make such an offensive comment about someone dealing with cancer?

If so, shame on MJH and I hope this comes back to bite her in her newly 42 pound-less butt by having what is left of her career fizzle.

Even if said jokingly I hope that MJH has the decency and respect to apologize to Farrah Fawcett. Shame, shame.

Was Susan Atkins' Parole Hearing Postponed?

Source: wikipedia
I can find no news on Susan Atkins' parole hearing, which was scheduled for May 28, 2009. It seemed likely that parole would once again be denied, but I would think that would be reported to the news outlets. Had Atkins been given parole, there is no doubt that would have been a huge news story.

I have found one tidbit, located on another blog, that claims that Atkins' parole hearing was postponed, but without mentioning a reason or if the hearing had been rescheduled.

In searching for any news on the parole hearing, I found Atkins' official website and, despite myself, I browsed thru it, particularly the section on debunking the myth of Helter Skelter. I must say that Ms. Atkins is a manipulator of the highest degree. Whether or not she personally dealt the fatal blow to Sharon Tate is arguable but for Atkins to claim that she not only froze on August 9, 1969 but lost her knife in the Tate-Polanski residence and did not stab anyone is disingenuous at best. I would laugh but it's sickening to the memory of her victims for her to claim such a thing. For the record, she claims that the jailhouse confessions she made to several women (wherein she claimed she told Sharon Tate she had no mercy for her, personally stabbed Sharon to death, tasted her blood and wrote in Sharon's blood on the front door of the residence, as well as wanting to cut the baby out and having a real love in her heart to do this for people) was made in order to ward off homosexual advances. Sure, Susan. We really believe you.

You know, I would find Susan Atkins a lot more believable if she admitted what she did and either expressed remorse or went the Charles Manson route and claimed she had none.

This to me is why she shouldn't be released. Nearly forty years later and she's still a manipulative liar.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Brings the Crazy

Source: tshirtwatch.com

I'll admit it. I've never been a fan of Jennifer Love Hewitt's. Don't know why. Back in the day, when I would occasionally watch Party of 5 (it was on after Beverly Hills 90210, okay?) her character of Sarah annoyed me. So maybe it's just annoyance transference between that character and the actress.

Anyhow, she and her boyfriend of, what? three or four months?, Jamie Kennedy were on the L.A. radio show JohnJay and Rich (don't know it either) yesterday and apparently there were some rumors floating around that J. Love was engaged yet again as she and Kennedy were supposedly spotted at a Las Vegas jewelry shop buying a ring.

Per Us Weekly

When her boyfriend heard the engagement reports, “the poor guy was on fire,” she
went on. “He was like, ‘No, no, no. That’s not true!’” Added the actress,
“I was like, ‘God, would that be the worst thing in the world?! Excuse me, but
just for a second, there’s a line of people who would probably be OK with that
[rumor].’” Kennedy said he didn’t mean to upset his girlfriend.
“The thing is, people asked me, ‘Are you engaged?’ And I just said, ‘No, not that the
moment, I’d be a very lucky man,’” he said. “And she got mad at me!”
Kennedy then asked Hewitt for a proposal timeline. Replied Hewitt, “A timeline? By
this time next year, if we’re not planning something, then there’s a situation.”

If this doesn't make Jamie Kennedy pack his bags and get the hell out of Dodge, I don't know what will.

Jennifer Love Hewitt strikes me as the kind of gal who likes being engaged. She has been engaged quite a few times, right? (I'm too lazy to look it up). She hasn't actually made the trip down the aisle yet - - which tells me that either she gets engaged too quickly and easily and chooses the wrong men or she's a real pain in the ass. Maybe both.

This time last year, J. Love was planning a wedding to former fiance Ross McCall. She wasn't dating Kennedy. They have only been dating for three or four months and she's acting as though she's offended that he hasn't considered marriage yet. Slow down, girl. You're coming across as desperate and needy. Why not enjoy just dating? Why not get to know each other and make sure, real sure, this is the person you want to spend the rest of your life with? As the old saying goes, the wedding is one day, the marriage should be forever.

And what is up with demanding a proposal timeline? After three or four months? Three or four years, yeah, I can understand. But have they even got to the point where they know the color of each other's toothbrush or the toothpaste they prefer?

And what kind of "situation" is J. Love referring to? Is she going to head back to JohnJay and Rich to demand a proposal or is she going to slash his tires and stalk him?

Seriously. I think Jennifer Love Hewitt needs to step away from men for a while, get a little self respect and maybe eat a sandwich while she's at it.

Has Suri Ever Met a Fruit?

Besides Dada Cruise, that is.

All snark aside, I mean has this child ever eaten (publicly) an apple, a banana or heck, even a granola bar?

This most recent picture was taken within the last couple of days and besides being ridiculously staged while trying to look totally candid, it continues a cycle of seeing Suri eating sugary, unhealthy junk food.

I'm not saying that having sweets on occasion is bad. I certainly do love my Butterfingers or 100 Grand bars now and then. But is it really healthy to (at least publicly) give your child nothing but sugary treats? (Especially a child that if brought up according to L. Ron Hubbard's crazy ass Scientology standards was "nurtured" on a diet of barley water). Look at how thin Suri is - - she doesn't have a bit of baby chub on her, and hasn't for some time.

Hey, Katie. Maybe you should put down the ever-present Blackberry and encourage your kid to try some raisins, an apple or even dry Cheerios. And for the love of God, please dress her like a child instead of a 2 1/2 foot tall Manhattan socialite!
Ah, to be Suri Cruise's future dentist or therapist. I can smell the millions already.

Just some snaps of Suri taken over the last year or two, minus anything remotely healthy (and including a shoe):

Prince Harry is Sex on a Stick

Source: socialitelife.com

I almost feel dirty for typing this . . . almost. After all, I was something like 15 years old when he was born but damn . . . if he hasn't turned out quite the hotness.

Remember when William was the hotness? Remember when William was the one the girls screamed over and Harry was just the gangly younger brother? Now William appears to have settled into premature middle age and Harry brings the hotness just by talking, breathing, you name it. (And nothing against William because I think honestly he is a decent, stand-up guy who just happens to be the next King of England).

Harry was in New York last week, for his first official visit to the United States and only his second visit to our country (the first was with his mother when he was young). He visited Ground Zero, laying a memorial wreath and observing a silent and moving moment, he visited the Harlem Children's Zone and played polo at a charity event ($50,000 per table? Okay, if I had that kind of money to blow, I'd probably pay it to, just to be in the vicinity of Prince Hotness).

Harry has fucked up in the past so there is no doubt this trip was in part to help reform his image. Fine by me. Put him in a suit, a polo outfit, whatever. Let him bring the sex-ay and all is forgiven (wink wink).
