Four For Friday - Old Hollywood Style

It has been awhile since I did one from old Hollywood so I thought I would do one here and then reveal it in the mass reveals. That way, you don't have to wait very long to see the answer. The answer is out there to be found by the way. Most of it. There is one new twist.



Four people involved in this. #1 and #2 were actors who made their fame in films, but both got their only real serious award nomination for television. Any movie lover will know who #2 is. #1, maybe not. #3 was an actress but gave it up when she married #1. Eventually she married #2 as well although the marriage to #2 was as a cover for #2 being gay. The twist to this story involves #4. #4 was an actor who also married into a really wild family. Everyone will know #4. #4 also tended to go both ways as well which must have made it fun when prior to #4's marriage, #1,#2,#3 and #4 used to periodically share one bed.

Random Photos Part One - With A Reader Photo

A few things here. First, there are no hats today. I know, I know. There were more hat photos available, including royal hats, but after awhile they all start to look the same. Except of course for the woman who had the blue cheese on her hat. That was unique. For those of you who think I dislike the Spanish Royal couple, you could not be more wrong. They completely fascinate me with how they work completely in tandem at all things. For those of you who added me to your Facebook, I am adding everyone as quickly as I can. Finally, there are several daytime stars in this week's photos. Some I know, and some I don't. With all of that being said, there are a bunch of photos and a movie review within the photos.



Abigail Breslin gets the top spot because, hey she brought the best looking date to the premiere. Yes, Julia Roberts is a producer on the film, but Abigail was the one smart enough to get her photo taken with Julia and end up in all the tabloids.

Anne Murray was a close second. I don't know what the hell you Canadians drink but this woman hasn't aged in like 30 years.
Speaking of drinking. This is Alfredo Palacias. He is the top film stylist in all of Mexico. To me he kind of looks like a gay Robert Evans with Melanie Griffith lip collagen injections.
The sickening good looking couple of the day award goes to Brandon Beemer and Nadia Bjorlin. Damn I wish I hadn't already used a Zoolander joke today. Damn you Mugatu.
I have always thought of Bernie Williams as a baseball player. I couldn't understand what he was doing at this songwriters award banquet last night.
Now I know.
Boyz II Men - New York
OK, now I posted another photo of the group because I have a rule that says no snark in band photos. Just the facts. However, there are just too many good ones to let this go completely. Shouldn't the band think about changing their name to Men II Seniorz? I think they are singing their new song, "If NKOTB can make some dough we can too."
The Barron Hilton checklist. DUI arrest? Check. Walks likes Paris? Check. Big ass feet like Paris? Check.
This is the cast from the new film Donkey Punch. Supposed to be great.

I thought it was a massage chair, but it looks like Don Diamont is getting ready for a prostate exam.
Danny Aiello. Love him.
Who would have ever guessed in a million years that Cameron Mathison enjoyed beauty products?

Why do I love Jane Krakowski so much?

I do love Joan Jett as well. Love her. You hear that Cari?
Gorden Ramsay was in Australia to do some promotional work. In case you haven't been keeping up there has been a big flap in Australia about Gordon and his swearing. So, in good fun, he was given this swear jar.
Which he promptly dropped. Let the swearing begin.
One daytime star I know is Finola Hughes. I used to have the biggest crush on her.


That's why you get the ladies Jack Wagner.

So another photo of our boy named Goo. Hey Goo Goo Dolls fan club. Not every photo is perfect. I post the ones I got. Hopefully you like this one better.
John Maybury is a hell of a director and has got a great sense of humor.
James McAvoy took about 1,000 photos yesterday doing press for Wanted and the premiere. There are about 20 in the 1,000 where he is smiling. Anyway, here is a mini-review of "Wanted" from our very own Mooshki.
Mini-review: It was a lot funnier than I expected. The first few minutes are straight out of "Office Space." I think this movie is going to move James McAvoy onto many people's hottie list. (I know he was already there for some of you!) Angelina was the usual Angelina - goddess-like but way too thin. Morgan Freeman was also his usual god-like self. The supporting cast was great. (I love Terence Stamp!) Some of the plot turns you could see coming a mile away, but some were surprising. It was very fast-paced - they stuck to the action instead of getting bogged down in motives or backstory. (That's what I want in this kind of movie.) There were parts where you could clearly see the comic book roots, but there were only a couple of hokey moments. Also, a couple of "Star Wars" shout-outs, which were fun. Angelina gets naked, which seemed to really be a plus to the guys in the audience. ;) (Full back nudity.) Warning: it is fairly violent. I'd happily pay$15.00 to see it.
John Legend just always looks cool. Always.
I love Loretta Lynn.

So, here is Lindsay Lohan on the set of her new film. I can imagine the conversation she had with producers, the director and the wardrobe person that in fact her character would wear leggings. And, oh, guess what, the production can buy them from this great place for just $5000 a pair.
Another daytimer I am familiar with. Kirsten Storms which is like the greatest name ever. Besides soaps she has done Kim Possible.
I don't think Kristin Hager has been in the photos before. The reason I put her in today though was I think this is just an amazing photo of the red carpet.
Looks like Kristen Bell just got a big whiff of Dax's pit.
I know it's a Jameson party and all, but that isn't Morgan Spurlock's wife.


Matt Morris - New York
I have no idea who Michael Easton is or if he is gay. Didn't read his IMDB. He could have a wife and four kids, but if he isn't gay, then he needs to make a change.
I have to say that if Minnie Driver wanted to be wife #7, I would probably go for it.
When is the last time you saw Lori Petty? Well here she is.
Rihanna - New York

Ooops. There was one hat photo. I couldn't resist. There are about ten photos of this kid playing with the hat at Ascot. That kind of smile doesn't last long.
Want a good drinking game? Go back to the first years of SNL and take a drink whenever Paul comes on the screen.
Happy 65th birthday Paula.
Natasha Bedingfield looking fabulous.
First timer Thomas Kretschmann. Brought his A game though. Nice sock.

Teri Garr doing something very familiar. Heading into Dave's show.
Where the hell have you been Siouxsie Sioux?
This is a really good photo of Sherri Shepherd.
Our lovely reader photo of the day. That is Bonnaroo. Notice the I hate Kanye posters everywhere. Oh, maybe I'm the only one who sees them.

Wallace Shawn always cracks me up.

The best name of the day goes to Van Hansis.
Where the hell have you been Twiggy?
Would you believe these are Will Smith's kids? They are.
One of the best. Terrence Stamp.

Daily Mirror Blind Item

Which Hollywood siren was caught, er, powdering her nose a little too often at a glittering event? The babe in question raised quite a few eyebrows by spilling powder on her dress...

No More Free Food For Paula


In case you were wondering why Paula Abdul was looking much more thin lately it is because the restaurant dude who was living with her moved out. I don't know what possessed him to move in with her to begin with unless he had just been kicked out of his parent's place and needed somewhere else to stay for free for awhile.

I mean she was probably so blitzed half the time he could have been living there with six other people and convinced Paula that it was just a rehearsal for Idol. She would have mumbled, slipped on her dog and just fallen back to sleep right where she fell.

Paula is of course now, ahem 46, and still wants to have a few children. I know, I know, and I'm not a biology expert, but I'm guessing she would have to adopt and hopefully there aren't any countries that are stupid enough to give her a kid. Just give her a doll that makes noises and she probably won't notice the difference.

She can bring it to Idol with her and prop it up on the judges table. Every year or so just switch it out with a new doll and she won't ever know. Lets face it. The woman doesn't need a kid. There really is not enough money in the health care system to ever fully treat someone for the trauma they would face as the child of Paula Abdul.

Anyone Want To Roll The Dice?


When Naomi Campbell plead guilty today to two counts of assaulting a police officer; one of using threatening, abusive words or behavior to cabin crew; and one of using insulting, abusive, threatening behavior or disorderly conduct likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress, I said to myself I wonder if there is someone out in the world who would be willing to do the exact same thing to some cops and see if they get the same sentence as Naomi Campbell. Somehow I think the person trying would be in jail for quite sometime.

Naomi on the other hand gets another slap on the wrist, an admonishment from the court and several dates with the judge. No, I don;t think there will be any dates. Do you? So what kind of sentence did Naomi get?

200 hours community service and fined $4,500.

That's it. No probation, no nothing. Go run some fashion shows for poor kids and she is done. If we tried to do something like this we would probably still be in solitary confinement with the police returning the favor once each hour like clockwork. Meanwhile Naomi is free to do it all again. This really isn't a punishment at all. She could have received six months in jail for each charge and a $10,000 fine for each charge.

I will say this though. I believe she is still a UK citizen. She has now been convicted of a crime in the UK that would ban "everyday people" from getting a visa to the US to work for sure and to visit maybe. I'm not sure how much money she actually makes in the US each year, but if she is treated like everyone else she won't be working in the US again for a very long time.
