The past two days I have tried to make the site a little more Kutcher and Kardashian free. I have hard time believing that huge football fan Ashton Kutcher was totally unaware of the Joe Paterno child molestation scandal when he Tweeted about it as he is now claiming. I also don't believe he is really giving up his Twitter account completely. I think it was just some damage control because lets face it, he looked like a stupid insensitive idiot and he is already world class at looking like that.

Growing up, I remember each day that I saw the newspaper sitting out that I would open the comic page and read Family Circus first. I'm not sure at what age I understood it, but there was something about the drawing and the style and the characters that made them more real than some of the superheroes. No mater what, everyday that family was there and I felt like there was much more of a connection to that strip than to others, at least when I was young. Later of course I graduated to Calvin & Hobbes and other strips that might have been more edgy, but there was always something about Family Circus that drew you back and it never grew old. Although Bil's son has been drawing the strip for awhile now, it still is sad to know the creator and the inspiration, Bil Keane died this week at the age of 89.

I will not make some sarcastic remark about how Holly Marie Combs' marriage was not charmed or that it did not turn out to be so magical after all. It is just way too easy to mention the one show where she actually gained some fame. She is on Pretty Little Liars now, but this is nothing like her Charmed years. She kind of was lost in that show though. It is like Gabrielle Carteris who played Andrea on 90210. She was on 90210 forever, but she kind of got swallowed up by the other personalities on the show. Holly was kind of lost on the show. She actually starred in the most episodes of anyone else in the show, but most people remember Alyssa Milano or Rose McGowan or even Shannen Doherty.

Major League Baseball player Wilson Ramos was rescued by the military today in a gunfire filled rescue that remarkably left no one injured or dead which shows there must have been some really bad shooting on both sides. Four men in their 20's were arrested and charged with the kidnapping of the player from his house two days ago. Four other men from Colombia managed to escape during the gunfire exchange and have not been found. Also arrested was a couple in their 60's who are accused of supplying the kidnappers with food and shelter.

What do you do if you were in a popular band 30 years ago and need to make some money for retirement? Well, if you are not named Ozzy Osbourne but are the other members of Black Sabbath you announce an album and reunion tour and cash in on people willing to pay $100 to see a bunch of guys in their 60's play songs from 40 years ago. Yeah, kind of like going to a Rolling Stones concert. Oh yeah, or an Aerosmith concert. Yesterday Black Sabbath announced they were going to release their first studio album in over thirty years. They also said they would be going on tour next year and that Sharon was tired of seeing Ozzy sitting around everyday so got the band back together. The tour will be sponsored by AARP and Ensure.
So, I have pretty much decided that Braxton Family Values is my favorite celebrity reality show. In that mix I also count the Real Housewives, because lets face it, after the first year they are celebrities. That holds true for Jersey Shore too. I'm not comparing it to Survivor or Amazing Race or those because they are pretty spectacular shows. The problem with both of those is you have to commit to the entire season. They have to be your life for four months from the outset or you just cannot get into it. Something like the Braxtons you can come in after a couple of episodes into a season and you are all good. Last season I got hooked on this show when WE had a marathon one weekend. I think that is how everyone gets hooked on reality shows. As much as I despised The Hills, if you put me in front of a television playing 8 hours of them back to back, anyone will get hooked.

You know, when you appear on a national television show that is pretty popular, people are going to check up on you. Apparently Whitney Duncan has been checked up on and is not actually the single person she has claimed to be. She even won some Bachelorette Of The Year award. She is actually married and has been married for over a year so the fact that she got into a relationship with Keith Tollefson kind of brought some trouble to the marriage. Whitney is married to the lead singer for a band called KingBilly. Well, Whitney left for Survivor back in May and before she came back she called her husband and said she fell for another contestant. She then moved out of his house and has since been hanging out with Tollefson.
Apparently celebrities wanted to mark memorable occasions on 11-11-11 as much as everyday people. Look at that, an homage to Kathy Hilton on a rainy Saturday morning. Not sure why it has to rain only on the weekends. It is like the weather Gods are just forcing me to stay inside and drink and watch football all day. Not that I need a lot of encouragement to stay on the futon/bed all day. I guess at some point I might wander upstairs and see what my mom is cooking today.
Shayne Lamas gave birth to a baby girl who she and her husband decided to name Press. Apparently they had always planned to induce on the 11th, but the baby almost came a day early. If she turns into a bottle rat will Nik Richie just ignore it or will he put her on blast? See, I keep up with everything everywhere, even The Dirty. It is like watching Jerry Springer on a website.
OK. who stayed up late last night and watched Jimmy Fallon? Please tell me you did. Please also tell me you stayed up to the very end. Yes, you made it through Adam Sandler and then a very funny Chris Martin and then you got to Beyonce's performance and wanted to see the baby bump and you got? I tell you what I got. I got three minutes of me looking really hard for any kind of bump and then another 20 minutes of me going back again and again watching it and still not seeing any bump and then deciding she is actually thinner than she was last year. I really had a lot to drink last night, but it was like one of those 6 hour benders where you just kind of maintain a buzz all night. Still though, I ran through the possibilities. Was it a rerun? No, because Adam was on and they talked about Jack & Jill. Did they edit in Beyonce's performance from months ago? Maybe. Apparently she might have filmed this back in July and they saved it for sweeps. They then cut in Chris Martin at the end. It seems kind of odd to save her for a holiday night in November.

I saw something like this in the news this week and thought it would be an interesting question. Would you marry someone even if you found out you had a terminal disease or your future spouse had a terminal disease? Would it be too much to handle and you would not go through with it?
I hope that all of you have stopped what you are doing and looked at your clock and if you haven't then you need to so tonight. Of course, since I am on the west coast, the people in just about the entirety of the world have had a chance to celebrate one of the greatest nerd events of the century. 11/11/11 11:11:11. Apparently I am not alone in thinking it is a pretty cool event. Wedding licenses in Las Vegas are up a zillion percent because people all want to get married today and at last count some 4,000 couples have already applied to get married and that is just Vegas.

Jackie Bouffant, still young, still beautiful, seems to have already run the Hollywood gamut in his brief career: boys, drugs, not to mention the requisite "beard." As in, a red-carpet girlfriend he loves to trot out for the paparazzi and mainstream press.
But that was so yesterday.
Today, Jackie's got some totally homo cajones on him!
Just like Toothy Tile once sported the young man he adored, it looks like Jackie's showing off his, too! Hot!
At a recent very glitzy Hollywood event, Jackie was likewise very obvious. And trust us, Jackie's not a silly, stupid boy like Parrish Maguire, who doesn't always triple-check where he hooks up.
So what happened?
There Jackie was, A-list everybody all around him, hitting the top of the press line with his new boyfriend in tow. Only, Mr. B. stopped just short of walking the carpet with cutie-pie BF, who has the most adorable curly coif and darling rosy cheeks.
Jackie, instead, had his dude walk around the carpet. And then guess what the TV and movie star did, once he finished walking the press line? He picked his boyfriend up at the end! It was totally like they were pulling some kind of playground game, too cute!
Only it was hardly grade-school stuff, once the newbie couple rejoined inside the party: with all the giggling and rubbing up against each other they were doing, who needed those outdoor heat lamps?
Funny thing, whenever an in-house photog tried to get Jackie and his man, the BF split faster than Brett Ratner chomps shrimp cocktail.
Smart man, he'll be by Jackie's side for years (or months) to come, we predict.
And It Ain't: Taylor Lautner, Chace Crawford, Robert Pattinson
#1 - This up and coming just about A list R&B singer either needs to head for rehab or get clean. She is out of control and spending almost $2500 a day on her drug habit.
Jay-Z is set to release a line of Occupy Wall Street t-shirts for his Rocawear brand and is not planning on sharing any of the money he makes. Although there have been people who have been making and selling t-shirts featuring the protest, this marks the first time they are going to go national and Jay-Z says that he supports the movement, but hey, he still needs to make a buck.
WHICH entertainment show personality is in danger of losing her cushy five-day-a-week gig because of her annoying attitude? This would be the SECOND job the thin brunette’s lost. In 2009 she was dumped from a hugely popular ABC prime-time position!
As much as I enjoy watching Maury Povich saying you are the father or you are not the father, especially when the guest has been on ten times and still cannot figure out who the baby daddy is, it still is missing that celebrity feel. Maury and his producers have been trying their hardest to get Justin Bieber on the show for his DNA test results and it would be the greatest episode of the show ever. But, it is not going to happen. First, Maury would probably want him to face his accuser and that is not going to happen. Second, if he is the father, this is going to be the quickest settlement, payment and confidentiality clause you have ever seen. Although all of us would love to watch them on the show together, I just don't see what the upside is for Justin. Now, if this were ten years from now and he had not had hit in that decade, then he might agree to do it. Hopefully by then he will be lasting longer than 30 seconds too.
Last week, Sasha Grey was invited to an elementary school to read to children as part of the Read Across America program. Sasha had such a great time that she Tweeted about it and kids went home and told their parents about the celebrity they had read to them. Then some parent probably Googled Sasha Grey and discovered she used to be a porn star. Uh oh. Parents began raining phone calls down on the school and the next thing you know the principal of the school started lying and says celebrities come all the time to the school, but Sasha was never there. Hmm. She did Tweet about it and was very specific. Oh, and then of course there are the photos that TMZ just happened to find of the incident. I bet the principal is glad that today is a holiday so he does not have to answer any questions. What do you think? Should parents be upset that Sasha was reading to their kids?

This male, C-list actor has been getting a lot of work done, mostly to improve his physique so he can keep getting roles for his body type. Friends are whispering that he’s becoming addicted to the procedures after he recently scheduled a procedure to get his feet worked on. Sad!
Kaitlin Brand, who just turned 16 discovered the body of her mother last month after she had committed suicide. Despite that, Kaitlin, managed to make this video which is awesome. Take three minutes and see if you are not moved.
Maybe Victoria Beckham should start spending more of her advertising dollars to Vogue if she wants to achieve her life long dream of being on a Vogue cover. Until this month neither of the Olsen twins had been on a Vogue cover, but apparently the ad buy from their clothing line must have finally been high enough where they not only got a cover, but also were awarded the title of best dressed. I'm sure the person who decides on the award is a very nice person and I think it is admirable that Vogue finds jobs for the visually impaired and encourage other companies to do the same. I just think that when it comes to determining a visual award that the judge should be someone who does not have Full House photos on their bedroom walls still and the entire collection of those Olsen twin detective videos.
If you have never heard the story of Angie Varona, head on over to ABC and listen to what she has to say. Angie is 18 years old and for the past four years has been the most Googled teenager in the world who is not a celebrity. When Angie was 14 she took a whole bunch of photos of herself in bikinis and lingerie and sent them to her boyfriend. She stored them all in a Photobucket account. The account was hacked and every photo made its way to the internet where they have been used for porn sites and other ads. The pictures have been altered to make her look naked and there are numerous sites on the internet all devoted to her. The problem is that she did not want any of this attention and at school she was bullied and called some pretty nasty things. Random strangers would call or e-mail her that they were going to rape her. She had to quit two schools and ended up being home schooled just because of the constant attention. Because of the stress she also started taking drugs and contemplated suicide because she knows the images will be there forever.
"When you're 14 you don't realise that the things you do really do matter at that point. No one ever thinks that, yeah, I'm going to take these pictures and it's going to end up all over the Internet. You just do it for yourself."
Currently if you search Google for images of her, you end up with 65,000. Her parents tried to stop the spread of the photos but were unable to do so and since there was no nudity it was not considered child porn.

It looks like it is not taking producers of America's Got Talent long to find a replacement for Piers Morgan. The Wall St. Journal of all publications is reporting that Howard Stern is thisclose to signing a deal to be a judge on the show for $15M a season. That is a ton of money to work just a few hours a week. I guess he does have a commute to make which will add to his burden, but for $15M a season, I think I could suck it up and fly coast to coast once or twice a week for a few months.
The NY Post has an interview with Angelica Marie Cecora who is 25 and spent a crazy night with Oscar De La Hoya. He found her on her website. She says that several months ago, Oscar came back from visiting the troops in Iraq and wanted to party. Apparently they did. It included sex, and positions that Angelica says she still remembers vividly and which she had never done. She also says that Oscar was drunk the whole time, had drugs ordered to the room and loved wearing her skirts and panties. Apparently Oscar got a little aggressive so Angelica called another girlfriend to help her and together the two of them entertained Oscar for awhile longer until they wanted to sleep. Oscar kept wanting to party and would not let them leave. That is the basis of the suit. It sounds to me like a shakedown. She admitted that he hired her for the whole night so it makes sense if he is paying for the whole night he wants to have fun the whole night. They were able to lock him out of the bedroom so I am pretty sure they would have been able to walk out the hotel room door. They also could have used their cell phones or the hotel room phones. I think she is more upset with the fact he never called again and that he checked out while she and her girlfriend were trying to rack up $1500 in charges at the hotel spa and charging them to his room. They ended up having to pay it themselves. She is suing Oscar for battery, false imprisonment and emotional distress.
I think the Academy Awards should have this kind of drama every year. The past few days have been way more exciting then the show could ever hope to be. Usually the Academy just picks a producer who nobody has ever heard of and at some point some safe, non offensive actor or actress is asked to host the most boring four hours on television. This year though we had a full on scandal. Well, scandal in the minds of the elderly people that run the event and probably had no idea who Brett Ratner was, but knew he was their best shot at getting Eddie Murphy. It kind of sucks that Eddie is not going to host, but with Billy Crystal hosting, people who have heard the name but have no idea who he is anymore can see him in action. This will be his ninth time hosting the show, but his first since 2004.
