Michael Douglas And Catherine Zeta Jones Are Doing The Tabloid Cover Route And I'm Not Sure Why

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones on the cover of Kneepads this week is not going to be a big seller. This is why the guy running the place is not being asked back after his contract expires. Should have changed places with that Zac Efron story to sell some copies. What I don't really understand is why even have the cover in the first place? Either CZJ or Michael Douglas' people are the sources for the story and it talks about how they are working to save their marriage but won't be spending their shared birthday today together. If the two had decided to reconcile I get a cover story. If they had decided to split I get the cover story but I don't get the working on it cover story. Neither has a movie coming out and Michael just did a whole bunch of publicity with the Emmy Awards so this is strange. Maybe it is one of them trying to save it and thinks by putting it out to the world it can be saved.

I agree that Efron would have sold more, particularly with a beefcake cover. Huge purchase appeal to women 19-35 who remember Troy at his peak.

Any of you broads really into piercings? I seen a couple pics of chicks with pierced taint recently and I wonder "Why?" I get the clit piercings, bars for lil ones/door knocker for bigger ones, but does a taint piercing do anything for ya?

Nutty_Flavor said...

@Count, that has nothing to do with the topic. You are starting to remind me of my elderly relatives, who interrupt conversations and television programs with observations that have nothing to do with the matter at hand. They also drool, as I suspect you do as well.

I think that outside of gossipland, Catherine Zeta Jones has a more solid image. If not for the gossip and all the negative things I've heard about her hospitalization, I would have a more positive attitude toward her.

Since I once did a magazine the decision of the main cover isn't enrtirely in the hands of the editor. It needs to meet the approval of the publisher /editor-in-chief. I bet People paid a lot for the MD story which demands the main cover.

Are you serious? Bitches love them some CZJ!

Ms Cool said...

I don't even know what a taint is.

Spiffypaws said...

I had to google it.

i've got eight piercings, and not telling where... but not the taint (known in my circles as the "Notcha")...

MD DID thank 'my wife Catherine' during his Emmy speech. I think he doesn't want it, but maybe wants permission to fuck around.

He might be hanging on because he cares about CZJ, wants tabs on her health, and wants to keep her with her kids. i hate to say if the recent health rumors are true, CZJ might fare poorly in a custody decision, and I don't think MD wants to put her through that publicity.

Sounds weird, but I think he really cares for her, she's just not functioning as a partner for him anymore/consistently. The fact that MD didn't just dump her when things got tough (maybe for the first time in his life) actually impressed me. I hope I'm right, anyway.

Unknown said...

Not exactly on topic but at least related to CZJ, is it just me or did something weird happen to her eye? It has looked really wonky in every photo in the last few weeks. Botox gone bad?

Count Jerkula said...

@Nutty: I am not contracted to stay on topic. This was going to be a shit comment section, so I tried to ask a question to the audience.

Your comment was off topic as well, and I don't complain about it.

@nutty - well said

auntliddy said...

Maybe a deeper story is going to explode?

auntliddy said...

And as the count went off topic, which is fine by me, i wld like to off topic to say my batshit daughter in law is drving me crazy again.

Count Jerkula said...

Liddy, she off her meds, or just a roller coaster of turmoil?

auntliddy said...

She is just one of those exhausting negative people-water isnt wet enough, sky isnt blue enough, sun isnt hot enough- nothing makes this woman happy, and she finds fault with EVERYTHING and everyone, and i have to suck it because of the children. But sometimes she even surpasses herself. She says shes on meds, but she lies, so who knows? Youre very kind to listen:)

Seahorse said...

@Liddy Bless you I know how hard it is when your child is attached to a kook my nephew married one and finally they are divorcing hope you get lucky too. As my Niece (His sister) was telling me they were divorcing she was busily deleting the Beeyotchs photos from her digital frame. Fortunately she loves to hand over the kiddos to my SIL an awesome Nana.

auntliddy said...

Thanks , seahorse, for your support. :)

Count Jerkula said...

No problem Liddy. In addition to vice, I am an authority on crazy betches. I did 2 years of hard time with a black cloud of misery lurking about my house, choking as much joy out of life as possible.

auntliddy said...

Yes, they suck the air out of the room. Sorry about your crazy lady.

Iceberg said...

@Count So now you know how I feel.

Agreed, Libby. I was surprised he thanked her at the Emmys with all the stuff I've read here.

fouxdafafa said...

The conversation here between the Count and Aunt Liddy kinda warms my heart, if I had one.

Henriette said...

I prefer MD to CZJ. I think they are headed for divorce and have been for a while.

Count Jerkula said...

@Iceberg: you outting yerself as a black cloud of misery? I had my suspicions, but I wanted more concrete evidence before I laid out a profile.

@fouxdafafa: I had another paragraph typed out, but was afraid showing too much feeling would blow the sociopath gimmick.
