Four For Friday

I had not planned on doing this, and in some recess of my mind had forgotten I had even written this, but someone asked me this week about Cannes and the long blind item I had written about Cannes. I wrote it almost two years ago which made me realize how long I have been writing this blog. The time has just flown by. Anyway, with Cannes just finishing, I thought this would be the perfect time to revisit this wild item. I have included the link in case you want to see what the original guesses were.

CR Goes AWOL

August 14, 2007

As you can probably tell from some of the other long blind items, much of my early legal career consisted of being a highly paid gofer or fix it person. It's not like I was the only one, there were several of us who when we were not wading through thousands upon thousands of discovery documents were assigned to make sure so and so got to court or to his deposition or went to homes to pick up legal documents and made sure they were signed. And when I mean signed, I mean signed by the actual party that was supposed to sign them and not someone's housekeeper because the actual party had been on a 72 hour coke binge and couldn't even hold a pen. This is the weirdest one of the getting someone sober incidents I have been involved in, but they happen everyday. Everyday. There is no difference between regular folks and celebrity folks except that when celebrity folks get trashed out of their minds they are often responsible for hundreds of jobs and there are millions of dollars involved.

Big film festivals were part of the daily grunt work. At a film festival, especially an international one, deals are done for new films and international distribution agreements are also hammered out. Usually these deals are done in a more intricate game of swapping then the guy who traded up from a paperclip to a house.

Whenever there are deals to be done there are attorneys, managers, agents, and the people to make sure all the copies are done. I suppose it would be less expensive for a minimum wage college kid to do it, but if I did it, then you could charge somebody $400 an hour. Remember film accounting.

So a few years ago, I along with my fellow brethren were sitting in Cannes. Ahh, movie stars, photo calls and big hotels. Well when you think of me at Cannes you have to imagine two guys, and sometimes three in a room designed for one very small individual. Added to the fact that I'm 400 pounds and sweat profusely when there is no a/c and you can see why my peers weren't too thrilled to be sharing a room with me. Did I mention I have IBS? OK, I don't, but that would have added to their fun no doubt.

So anyway, there is going to be huge movie debuting at Cannes with lots of stars and one hugely popular director. Not as popular in the States, but you know those French. They love this guy. The director has been away scouting locations in Poland for an upcoming film but was due into Cannes three days previously. No one knows exactly where in Poland he is, and the powers that be are getting anxious. Very anxious. As in anxious that millions of dollars could be pissed away because the whacked out hack of a director can't be found. (Earlier in the week he was the creative visionary who was eccentric)

One star of the film who has worked with CR before has been summoned to try and find the director but either she (former A list actress and hottie) doesn't know or isn't saying. At this point someone remembers that said star and I have known each other for awhile and that maybe she will tell me what she won't reveal to anyone else. Yes, I know her, but one forced six hour plane ride years previously is not the same as coming over for some 400 pound loving. She doesn't know.




Then one night, the director's long time assistant calls and says that the director is holed up in Krakow and has fallen in love. He doesn't want to leave and has decided to stay there. So, because of my two degree of separation which doesn't even exist I am sent to Krakow to meet up with the assistant and get the director to Cannes.

Well getting from Cannes isn't that easy. Of course I don't get a private jet. What I get is a 3 connection flight from Nice that gets me into Krakow at 3am. What was nice early summer weather in Cannes is actually some freezing late spring weather in Krakow and the assistant doesn't meet me at the dinky (sorry Krakow) airport and so I'm forced to find a place to crash.

When I call the assistant the next morning he apologizes for not coming to pick me up, but had been thrown in jail the night before for getting into a fight at a bar. When he picks me up in the early afternoon the swollen lip and missing tooth are a nice touch.

So, as we make our way to the new home of CR, the assistant filled me in on what happened. It seems that the director went to a bar in Krakow which was designed basically to remove as much money from a patron's pocket as possible while getting the patron drunk. Topless bartenders and waitresses sit down with the patron and get them to buy $25 drinks which allows the patron to spend time with the topless worker. Our director doesn't speak any Polish and his worker didn't speak any English, but somehow the director was convinced they were in love. The fact that that the director dropped several thousand dollars in one night probably didn't hurt in his quest for her love either. It certainly isn't his ravishing good looks.

Well, we get to the tiny apartment and the first thing that assaults me is the smell of sweat and stale urine. I also see the new girlfriend tapping a vein in her arm in preparation for her visit to H land. Turns out she had used some of the CR windfall to go on a major H bender. I want to make it clear that I didn't see CR using H or have any reason to suspect he did or does. I will say that he was a mess though. He was always a frenetic, frantic person but was at this point in some type of lets say drunken haze.

I told him basically that people were worried about him and then in my legalese told him that he had certain obligations and responsibilities which he needed to fulfill in order to avoid any possible consequences in the future..blah blah blah. It was a bunch of crap, but thought I would give it a shot. He started blathering and I do mean blathering which was babbling and drooling and spitting as he spoke about his new vision for a Polish cinema and how he was inspired and a whole bunch of other crap which made no sense. He mentioned that his H shooting friend and he were going to get married and become a great team. His future wife didn't look like she was going to make it through the week, let alone be a part of this great film making team.

He said that no one he had spoken to was familiar with his work and that he wanted to start a film festival there to show his works and those of other similar directors. I don't know where he got all this from because sitting in that very tiny apartment was a medium size television with a DVD player and about 30 DVD's at least one of which was a film by him. This guy was in seriously bad shape and because I didn't know him and didn't know if this was normal behavior when he got wasted I didn't know if he was going to die on me or be perfectly sober in a few hours. His assistant said he hadn't seen CR like this before but thought it was because they had been drinking homemade vodka and not store bought. Whatever. I could already see that there were no drugs involved, and that it was going to be some bad vodka he ingested while scouting for his latest film. Well that's what the story would be if something got out.

The problem I faced was how to get him out. He wasn't going to go if I said we needed to go to Cannes and there was no way I could carry him and I still didn't know if he was too sick to travel or what. What I suggested was that we go out for food and let his girlfriend have some time for herself as I looked at her sitting in a chair with these absolutely vacant eyes.

CR looked at the girl and I guess decided he was hungry and so we helped him up and out of the apartment with all of us ignoring the lovely urine stain on CR's pants. When we got outside, I swear there has never been a breath I have enjoyed taking more. I can still remember it vividly.

CR was basically compliant and we walked down the street for a good ways until we came to the central square and found a place with some heat lamps and ate outside. At first CR wouldn't eat anything but as we stayed there for several hours, CR began to eat and to regain some of his regular traits. Basically the three of us sat there people watching for the entire time although the assistant and I would make comments about some of the people and eventually even CR joined in. He still blathered, but it was more babbling, then blather and I knew that if I could keep him away from his "girlfriend's" place that I could get him to Cannes.

We started talking about his film that was going to be at Cannes at I got him to talk about it and try and remember what he loved about it and how people loved him in France and just became a bigger kiss ass than Larry King could ever dream to be.

At some point, I went to find a phone. (Yes, no cell) I made a call to Cannes and it turns out they already had a jet ready and waiting for CR at Krakow airport to bring him to Cannes. I explained the situation and they said they would handle it once I got him on the plane. When I got back to the pair, I suggested a taxi ride to see the city and CR agreed and the next thing you know, we are at the dinky airport and he basically just let his assistant guide him to the plane. I actually freaked out at one point about CR's passport, but the assistant had it in the backpack he had been carrying and had never let go of even when he had been arrested the night before. He said the police never bothered to search it or take it from him.

So the two got on the plane, and I got to go back to LA with not even a thank you and not even in Business Class, the cheap bastards. The film went on to be one of the highest grossing films of the year.

Random Photos Part One

At the top of the photos today is the one and only Carole Bayer Sager. I love her. Yes, I love her even though she seems to be channeling some type of combination of Joan Collins and Elizabeth Taylor.
Blake Lively just because I think it has become some kind of obligation to show as many pictures as possible of people from Gossip Girl. Hey, I'm a sheep.
Chickenfoot - New York (aka everyone Eddie Van Halen has pissed off)
Carla Gugino looking amazing as usual.
"So, then I saw this unicorn and I tried to talk to it and I said to myself what if there was a movie about a magical forest with a princess and a unicorn and I of course would star in it and write it and direct it and produce it and make a million trillion dollars."
I love Emmanuelle Chriqui but it doesn't seem like she ever does anything except the odd episode of Entourage. Is that going to be her career?
Yeah, tell me how thrilled you would look if you had to keep scrawling out the name Gandolfini 100 times an hour.
One of the very few Friends episodes I would actually take the time to watch again was the one with Jill Goodacre. Harry Connick Jr and Jill have been together like 1,000 years in Hollywood time.
Justin Long cleans up pretty nicely when he wants to.
In Lisa Rinna's new book entitled Rinnavation I'm guessing that her entire theory of Rinnavation goes something like this. "Lip injections. Wait for the swelling to reduce. Repeat."
Marisa Tomei looks normal here. The bar must not have opened yet.
What I think Chad Kroger is saying is something like, "Yeah, I'm a big ass tool, but you keep buying my records and making me rich so suck it."
I'm going to go on record as saying Orlando Bloom is not a bad looking guy at all. A bit too Justin Timberlake-ish with the hair, but otherwise very nice.
Today must be Friday because even Rose McGowan looks good. Sure, there was that tragic accident where she cut off both her feet, but she looks good.
Robert Pattinson prepares for his post acting career as a Chippendales dancer.
Wow. Seriously, Sheila E looks incredible.
Scarlett J behind the scenes at an ad shoot.
And in the end, Garth got the chick. Party on Garth.

Your Turn

It is almost June and to me June means summer time and those absolutely perfect days. I remember getting out of school on that last day and thinking to myself how much free time lay ahead. It seemed like years. Now of course the bastards at the stores torture kids by putting back to school stuff on display right at the end of June. I mean come on, I know you need to make room for your Christmas stuff, but give everyone a little time to enjoy doing nothing. So, that brings me to today's topic. Perfect day. What would it be? What was it? You can describe what your perfect day would be like or you can do a Groundhog Day moment and tell everyone what was the day you would do again and again.

NY Daily News Blind Item

Which former newscaster was so drunk at a recent fete that she could barely remember her own name, never mind what day it was?

Shanna Moakler & Michael Lohan Tied For Fame Whore Award


In one of the closest contests in years, Michael Lohan and Shanna Moakler are vying to see who can contribute the most worthless information to tabloids and yet still earn a living doing it. Earlier this week it looked as if Michael was going to run away with the competition. With Shanna no longer involved with the Miss California USA pageant and having nothing relevant to say about any topic she was desperate. So, she did what she has done so many times before. Much like when Michael pulls a Lindsay quote out of his hat, Shanna decided that she and Travis Barker are back together and told Star all about it for a little pocket money.

That's right. Just two weeks ago they were done. This was after Travis caught Shanna having sex with another guy. No matter though, now the couple is back together and according to Shanna they are stronger than ever before. I guess that is fancy speak for my boyfriend is out of town shooting a movie and so I might as well be with Travis.

"[We are] 100 per cent together. We are absolutely talking about one day renewing our vows. We love passionately, we fight passionately. That's just who we are."

Yeah, that's fine. I really don't care what you do at home and if the two of you are cheating on one another. What I do care about is that you are revealing your relationship day by day to the tabloids because no matter what you try and do you can never stay in the spotlight enough to make you happy. You had your reality show shot at fame and it sucked. No one wants to see you. You married and divorced well and that is pretty much your claim to fame. Yeah, yeah she was Miss USA or something, but no one knows the name of any Miss USA five minutes after they win unless they get involved in some kind of scandal. You could throw a parade of the past 50 years of them in front of me and I might recognize three names.

Some of Shanna's kids are old enough to read now I think. Umm, what do you think they would say if they read mommy and daddy are divorcing and now we are back together. I am confused as hell and I just read about it. I don't even want to guess how many times one or the other has probably left the house for a day or a week and nothing ever gets said. Probably because Shanna didn't need the money that week.

Katie Price Back Together With Her Sex Tape Star


In what I am sure Katie Price's spokespeople will call the coincidence of all coincidences, her ex-boyfriend Dane Bowers split with his wife of 18 months approximately two days before Peter Andre decided to call it quits with Katie. If you will recall, when Katie and Peter split, Peter said there was another man. Well, Katie's people then said there was a guy, but the gentleman in question was gay and that Peter was looking for a reason to leave. Uh huh. Well then perhaps Katie can explain what her ex boyfriend's car was doing smashed to pieces outside her home. Although Dane wasn't at the scene, he was arrested for DUI shortly thereafter. He now says his car was stolen and he doesn't know how it ended up outside Katie's house.

But because Katie and Dane didn't bother getting their stories straight first, Katie's people said the two were just having a lovely chat and had not spoken to each other for years except for that night. Uh huh. I think what we have here is Katie and Dane doing the dance between the sheets and were discovered. Don't think so? Here is a quote from Dane's soon to be ex-wife.

‘He is no longer in the marital home. I don’t have anything to say about Kate and Dane, except each to their own.’

Sounds to me like she is actually taking the high road in this to a point. I am good at reading between the lines and I think she knows exactly what is going on between the two. If she didn't she would have said so. Instead she said she didn't have anything to say about them. I wonder how many times she caught him watching the sex tape he made with Katie Price.

Archie Proposes To Veronica


Yes, comic books have never really been the subject of a post here unless you count Christina Aguilera's makeup. However, I think this one time something needs to be said about the fact that in the latest comic book, Archie has decided to propose to Veronica. What on earth is Archie thinking? There is no way this is going to work out well. This is going to be like every season of the Bachelor. Oh sure it starts out all nice and heart warming but the next thing you know they realize that Archie doesn't have enough money to afford the lifestyle of which Veronica is accustomed and she grows bitter and resentful and ends up sleeping with Reggie for money. Hey, that almost sounds like Kim Kardashian. Wow, comic books are like real life. No, I am sure Kim loves Reggie for Reggie.

Anyway, at some point Veronica will leave Archie and he will then see the true love of his life, Betty for all she is worth. But, by then Betty will be married and have kids and Archie will be forced to move in with Jughead and the two will decided to make ends meet by doing a very off Broadway version of The Odd Couple.

I don't know what the writers were thinking here. I mean it seems to me that Archie might be thinking of this through parts of his anatomy which are best left unsaid. This is a family comic book after all.

Gisele Bundchen Isn't Having A Baby?


I will be honest, I don't really pay very close attention to most of the pregnancy stories or engagement stories because most of them don't interest me and most of the time they are not true or the engagement ends after a day and so it all seems kind of like a waste of time. That being said, I am not a complete idiot and do read or at least skim most of the stories and I could have sworn, that Gisele or someone from her camp said she was pregnant. I know there were rumors but then I thought Kneepads or someone confirmed the whole thing.

Well, if she is pregnant it is news to her husband and most likely baby daddy Tom Brady. I mean she isn't cheating right? She didn't go to the Clay Aiken School of Impregnation Arts did she? After practice yesterday Tom was asked if Gisele was pregnant and he said, "No." Clear enough for you?

The thing is, he added another line shortly thereafter which is really kind of strange. He said, "One is enough." Have you ever read an interview with Gisele? She wants to give Octo-Mom a run for her money. Gisele wants a houseful of kids and Tom must know this and so him saying one is enough is either going to get him some serious couch time or he is just kidding around with everyone about the whole thing. If your wife is running around saying she wants ten kids he must have known this when he married her. So, unless he married her for her hotness. Oh. Oh. Yep. Couch time for Tom.

P.S. Tom Brady plays for the New England Patriots. Why on earth would he be wearing a Yankees cap? Even if he doesn't like the Red Sox, that seems like a big slap in the face.

Courtney Love Says She Is A Victim


You know all those ads you see everywhere for services that protect you against identity theft and watch your credit score and things in general just to make sure you are not the victim of a crime? Well, as much time as Courtney Love spends on the internet you would have thought she would have seen them. Apparently not, because Courtney is once again saying that people have been ripping her off for years and stealing all of her money and she didn't even know it.

In response to the suit American Express filed against her for $350,000 in unpaid charges, Courtney's lawyer says that none of the charges were from Courtney. Not the Spelling For Dummies book or the Xanax prescriptions. None of it. Instead it was the work of organized crime who managed to take out 104 AMEX cards all in Courtney's name or the name of one of her companies. Apparently this has been going on for years. Umm, then why didn't she say something to American Express years ago? Don't you think that when the first bills started coming in for cars and what not that you would look out your front door and say, "You know, I do a lot of drugs, but I really don't remember buying a Smart Car."

The thing is, Courtney said the same thing about six months ago and said that people had been stealing millions of dollars from her using her name and Kurt Cobain's name and so she was going to try and get it all back. Is she doing her own accounting? I'm pretty sure that unless her accountant is also her drug dealer, that they probably can identify a bunch of false charges.

On the other hand I wouldn't put it past Courtney to have 104 personalities and taken out a card in each name. I think she just doesn't want to admit she bought crap like what she is wearing in the picture.

This Is What Happened To Emily Longstreth


Last month I wrote a post entitled "Whatever Happened To Emily Longstreth. Well, you may have missed the fact that last week, someone responded in the comments who actually sounds like they know. Take it for what it is worth but it sounds fairly believable to me. Here is what she had to say. I edited certain portions of it, but you can always go to the post and read it verbatim. Oh, and I didn't correct the spelling.

I am the ex sister in law to Emily Lene Longstreth. I have a daughter with her only brother Eric Longstreth who lives in Las Vegas, with their mother. Emily lives in NYC in an apartment with some room mates. She has lived in homeless shelters for over 10 yrs. Her mother's name is Lene Wangmo ( she had her named changed when she converted to buddhism) Her born name is Helen Lenee Corn. She has two children Eric and Emily, Emily's father is John Longstreth He lives in Lake Forest, Ca. I just saw Her in October when Eric flew Her out for the month. She has changed a lot from Her twenties. Anyone who is that interested in Her, I know a lot about Her life and why she isn't able to act anymore. She was diagnosed w/ Bipolar and Paranoid Schephrenia at age 24 or 25. It's a tragedy. Ive only met her a few times because we live in Vegas. I can't stand my ex Eric.

Tori Spelling Killed Her Father


I had really thought that Candy and Tori Spelling had started to get things straight between the two of them. Obviously I was wrong. In an escalation of their feud to biblical proportions, Candy Spelling now says that Tori was the reason Aaron Spelling died. In an interview with Massachusetts radio station WMAS 94.7, Candy said, "My daughter one day decided that she wasn't speaking to my husband, myself and my son, and that's how it's continued for the last, oh gosh, four or five years. And it was sad, that's what killed my husband, actually. He just didn't want to live after that. He [had] just done everything he could possibly do for his daughter, and she wanted no part of him once he couldn't do anything for her."

So if I read this right Candy is saying that the only reason Tori even cared about her dad was when he could do things for her, pay her bills and get her roles. When he couldn't get her roles anymore because she can't act and he had used up all his favors, she stopped talking to him. Nice. You really don't find this level of family hatred outside of holiday gatherings. It just gives you a real warm and fuzzy feeling. I can't wait to see what happens when Tori takes her turn driving the bus.

Ted C Blind Item

No kinky homo lovin' in this week's Blind, either, folks, just some straight-up hetero debauchery! Does that make you happy or sad? Relieved, regardless, I'm sure. Anyways, guess all the gays were too busy protesting this week (or hiding indoors lest they come across as too sympathetic to the cause—we know we didn't see Toothy out and about holding a sign in WeHo!). So, that leaves us with Dominique (Dommy) Do-Rightly, rising star.

See, Dom's a ton more popular on the small screen than on the big one—tho for some silly reason she keeps desperately trying to make the film thing work. But Dommy's still managed to rack up a ridiculous amount of fans, all who think she's just so ├╝ber-cute and cuddly, like a posh stuffed teddy bear.

But would they still fawn over her so much if they knew their darling 'n' wholesome girl's one freaky wild party animal? We know we'd like her a whole lot more if she just fessed up to it!

Ms. Do-Rightly likes the public to think she's all about goin' organic, living healthy, saving the world and being an all-around sweetie-pie. Make me puke right now. Ugh.

I never bought that faux persona on this stink-eyed star, but I'm used to celebs totally lying about who they are! Those who know Dommy personally can't stand how stuck-up the bitchy babe is. She often refuses to promote her latest flicks as much as she's told, leaving all the legwork to her second billed, bitter costars.

No one can friggin' put up with the diva's demands anymore—that is, of course, except other divas! DDR is spending more and more time with skanky H'wood regulars—privately, at house parties, since public outings together would be oh so disastrous to Dom's clean-cut image.

At one such recent drug-infested fete, DDR boozed-and-bashed till all hours of the morning, blasting party energy up her nose and wrapping her legs, tongues, what have ya around dudes left and right, using the hostess's totally expensive living room couch to show off her moves (not like that sofa hasn't been tarnished enough with party germs already). And this was milliseconds after splitting with her last famous man! Guess that explains who did the dumping in that doomed relaysh.

Hey, got an idea! Maybe Dommy oughta bring her slutty ways out of hiding—look how much press Paris gets! And she gets whole damn perfume lines, too! What does Dommy have? A few politically correct endorsements here and there—and we sure know that ain't enough headline attention for a naughty nose-candy princess like DDR!

And It Ain't: Amber Tamblyn(damn right it ain't Amber), Blake Lively, Miley Cyrus

Today's Blind Items - 80's & 90's Vintage

So, for today I thought we would shoot back in time just a little. Not going to go back to Old Hollywood. We are just going back to those carefree days of the late 80's and early 90's. This A list female entertainer has had an amazing life. She has done just about everything possible in the entertainment world and is one of the most influential entertainers ever. Back in the day, our A lister had just gone through a very messy divorce. But, our actress had needs and loved, loved trolling the Lower East Side of Manhattan for Hispanic guys in her chauffeured driven limo. On one of her forays she found a 17 year old Hispanic guy and took him back to her place where she kept him for a few days until she grew tired of him. Well, it turns out that she gave this teenage boy the gift that keeps on giving. The Herp. Yep. Well, a few months later, our A lister was trolling the same neighborhood and people from the teenager's family recognized the car and before anyone could do anything all of his family pelted her car with trash from their garbage cans. Seems appropriate.

A Camp Visits Canada And Wants You To Attend

A Camp is going to be in three different cities in Canada over the next ten days and they want two CDAN readers to be there. If you have never heard of this group, you need to. The singer is Nina from The Cardigans and is just as catchy and just as intriguing. The song below called "I Can Buy You," is one of my favorites from the group and it is worth three minutes of your time.

Anyway, this is going to be a very quick contest. You have to let me know by midnight tonight Pacific time if you are interested in going to one of the shows.

May 31st Montreal Club Lambi
June 1 Toronto - Mod Club
June. 10 Richard's on Richards - Vancouver

Send an e-mail to ent.lawyer@yahoo.com and tell me the city in which you are interested in seeing them perform. The great thing is you find out tomorrow if you won. No waiting!!

Random Photos Part One

Remember, beginning on Monday I will be posting your photos that you e-mail me in the Random Photos so I hope you will keep e-mailing me and also read the post to see who is reading the site. That makes sense right?


This was a very close call as to who deserved to be on top today. In the end though I went with one of the funniest men of all time who was married to one of the funniest women of all time. Gene Wilder gets the top spot today promoting his latest book.
Coming in a very close second were Paul Simon and Willie Nelson. Their downfall was that I didn't really enjoy their contest between tie and pony tail as to which was longer. Apparently Paul may have a problem with shaking and so this hides the evidence if you know what I mean.
I really don't have the time to devote to the wonder that is this great story. However, Gawker and New Jersey Online have done a tremendous job of investigating Danielle Staub from Real Housewives of New Jersey and her criminal past. I also think that Bravo knows exactly what when on in her past because they were prepared for the questions and their spokesperson even said, "Watch what happens." For those of you not in the US, that is Bravo's slogan. I'm sure someone can provide links in the comments. It is incredible.
The first time Bebe Neuwirth has been in the photos since she got married. Congratulations Bebe!
This whole engagement thing must really be a good thing for Claire Danes because I would say she smiles most of the time now. It is going to cease being a topic of discussion.
Cris Judd, Peter Andre and a bunch of half naked men who appear to work out frequently.
This is some love. The Hoffmans are one of my favorite couples.
This is Fergie getting off a plane. I think she looks fine and this is how she should act and dress. She actually looks good and normal and not trying to be someone she isn't anymore.
A first time appearance for Jane Pauley.
Adam Lambert and Kris Allen at The Today Show.
Kate Walsh doesn't seem to be letting her divorce get in the way of umm, her smile? I just really don't like her. I think he soon to be ex is a tool also, but Kate should just be true to herself.
The very lovely Mary J Blige. I always feel the site has a bit more class when Mary J is present.
While most celebrities went and saw the Lakers game in person, Nick Lachey and Vannesa Lemon Jello decided to go with the less costly version. They watched it at a sports bar and used coupons.
I think Robin McGraw is the wife of the year every year. I wonder if he just talks and talks and talks and talks when they are at home.
The Queen with a new hair style.
Oh God. Ron White with a new hair style. I think he needs to get his money back on that wig.
Reese Witherspoon has been training for this softball movie for two months. At this point I think she will be the best player out there. She is certainly determined.
And at the end of the date, SpongeBob decides to go for third base with Zoe Salmon.
Sheryl Crow by herself is incredible.
Sheryl Crow with Grover is even better. Oh and the other Sesame Street characters also, but really, Grover is the best.
Want to know how Twiggy Ramirez doesn't look scary? He stands next to Marilyn Manson.
Is that really a Members Only jacket on Zac Efron? Seriously? Are the 80's really back? Didn't they burn them all?

Prescription Meds Are Pricey - Courtney Love Sued


Apparently prescription medicines are more expensive than I thought. Either that or Courtney Love has some truly awful insurance. American Express is suing Courtney because Courtney refuses to pay them for the more than $350,000 in charges she has racked up. They have revoked her gold card. Uh oh? She didn't have a Black Card? Well, I guess we know why. I mean if she can't even pay off a lousy $350K then there is no way she should have a Black Card.

How in the hell does Courtney spend $350K? She dresses like crap. She stays in all the time rambling on her various blogs and sites and when she does travel somewhere it is usually on the dime of someone else. That only leaves meds. I know, I know there is probably more to it than that, but $350K is a lot of shopping. I wonder how long they let it go before they stopped her from using the card. If one of us were a day or two late they would cut us off, but I bet someone somewhere at AMEX didn't want to be the subject of one of her rants and therefore let it go as long as possible. I wonder where she finally got declined. I'm guessing at 7-11 when she tried to buy a carton of cigarettes.

I don't know where she spends all her money. She sold a huge portion of Nirvana's catalog and got a ton of money from that, but failed to pay the $1M to the firm who negotiated the sale. She says that people have been stealing from her, but I think she has a bunch of different names she calls herself and they have been stealing.

Ben Widdicombe Blind Item

Which skinny NYC model busted on a night out with a bag of white powder in her purse, who claimed it was baking soda, was actually telling the truth? The bulimic girls believe that rinsing with it after vomiting neutralizes the effects of the stomach acid on their teeth.

Chris Brown Case Will Settle By June 22nd


I am guessing that sometime between now and June 22, Chris Brown and the district attorney's office will come to some kind of deal. The reason? Rihanna's attorney said that Rihanna has been subpoenaed to show up and testify at the preliminary hearing of Chris Brown scheduled for that day.

That means Rihanna will get on the stand and start spreading the news. It is one thing to hear rumors and to see the picture of Rihanna, but when she starts talking, things are going to go really bad for Chris Brown really, really quickly. It will be a news media frenzy and there is no way it will ever turn into a positive for Chris Brown. It won't even matter what happens at a trial or if there is a trial because people will remember what Rihanna says at that hearing.

All the hearing is supposed to do is to see if there is enough evidence to take the case to trial. It is a very low burden for the prosecutor and having Rihanna testify about what happens will see that it goes to trial. Chris Brown and company do not want that June 22nd date to go forward. At this point he would probably even plead to jail time because at least them her testimony will not ever occur and no one will ever know exactly what happened. We will have a great idea, but we won't ever know for sure.

Nicollette Sheridan's Boyfriend Convicted Of Receiving Stolen Property


Apparently Michael Bolton didn't have enough of an edge about him for Nicollette Sheridan. OK, lets face it. Any human being alive probably has more edge to them than Michael Bolton, but still, this is definitely going to the opposite extreme. It seems that Nicollette's new boyfriend plead no contest to buying stolen horses back in 2000. Four horses were stolen from a ranch in California and her boyfriend Steven Pate bought the horses knowing they were stolen.

When a reward was offered by the rightful owners of the horses, Steven came forward and said he had information about the horses but wanted the $10,000 reward. Instead he got arrested and charged with five felonies including Grand Theft Animal. Uh oh. That plan didn't work out did it.

Steven plead no contest and was sentenced to jail. After completing his jail term and probation, the felonies were reduced to misdemeanors. Nicollette of course has to spin this the best way she can. I'm surprised she didn't dump the guy, but maybe she is waiting until they buy a house together or something and then try and keep it. Anyway, her spokesperson said, "Steven didn't know the horses were stolen when he received them, and was the person who brought the information to attention of the authorities."

Uh huh. Then why did he plead no contest and go to jail?
