So, the new morning format seemed to work out pretty well yesterday so, I will keep sticking with it. I am working on another long blind item which will be combined with quite a few, not blind celebrity anecdotes that are relevant to the long blind item. Make sense? Also, I have received quite a few e-mails from people with some of their individual kindness stories and others wanting me to promote their band or play or whatever. So, I decided that next Friday which is my second favorite holiday, I will plug anything any reader wants to plug. I know I am going to plug Jeeeze's restaurant and Anna's bathing suit line and share the kindness stories, etc. So between now and next Thursday send me an e-mail with all of the relevant information and I will put it in front of the thousands upon thousands of other readers. The only caveat is it has to be directly related to you. You cannot say I want everyone to see this band that a friend of a friend of a friend knows.
Many of you asked me to comment on a recent suicide in Korea. Contrary to reports that were circulating, no one from Baby VOX committed suicide. The woman who did kill herself was a singer and actress and was under a great deal of pressure from her fans and her record label. Although I know of U Nee, the woman who killed herself, I do not know her and she is not the subject of the long blind item.
Kelly Osbourne was turned down by Playboy. She may have been turned down, but I think the quote by Hugh Hefner is fabricated. He allegedly stated “we don't airbrush to that extent.” First of all Hef has got more class than to say something like that in public. Second, I do not think Hef would want to get on the wrong side of Sharon Osbourne or piss off a rock legend like Ozzy. Finally, I am not so sure Hugh would turn it down. Kelly Osbourne may not be the typical Playboy pictorial subject, BUT there would be a tremendous number of issues sold and the interest would be really high. Ask yourself if you would be curious to see her in Playboy.
