Farewell Harvey Korman

Thursday, May 29, 2008

Harvey Korman of The Carol Burnett Show died today at the age of 81. As with Jimmy Fallon, half the pleasure was watching as Harvey tried to stop himself cracking up (as he frequently did with Tim Conway).

Mel Brooks summed it up when he told the AP, "A world without Harvey Korman — it's a more serious world. It was very dangerous for me to work with him because if our eyes met we'd crash to floor in comic ecstasy. It was comedy heaven to make Harvey Korman laugh."

Mel gave Harvey one of the best lines ever in a movie. Who can forget "Don't be saucy with me, Bearnaise," from History of the World, Part 1.

I Think SYTYCD's Robert Muraine Is An Alien

Tuesday, May 27, 2008

I watched So You Think You Can Dance again last night and was blown away by popper Robert Muraine. I seriously think he's some kind of alien or mutant. The way he moves isn't normal... or human!

Farewell Sydney Pollack

Monday, May 26, 2008

One of my favorite directors Sydney Pollack died of cancer today in L.A. He was 73. While he directed films like Out of Africa and The Way We Were, one of my favorite things he did was play Dustin Hoffman's agent in Tootsie (which he also directed). He also memorably played Will's father in Will & Grace. I always thought he seemed like he was a nice man.

Twilight Trailer: December 12 Can't Get Here Quickly Enough!

OK, I am not exactly the right age to be a fan of the Twilight series of vampire books, but I can't help it.

I am seriously excited about the film, which is coming out on December 12 starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson (Cedric Diggory from Harry Potter).

Now that Moonlight is on summer hiatus, this is the closest I am getting to my vampire fix (at least until August 2 when Breaking Dawn, the fourth book about Edward and Bella, comes out).

Yes, I am obsessing just a teeny tiny bit.

Does Cameron Diaz Bald Look Like Britney Or A Conehead?

Thursday, May 22, 2008

I can't decide. Does Cameron Diaz look more like shaved Britney Spears or a Coneheaded Dan Akroyd?

Robert Downey Jr, Jack Black and Ben Stiller Are Pips!

Best thing on the American Idol finale tonight (apart from David Cook winning and dancing in his undies and George Michael singing). Just watch Robert Downey Jr. Beyond brilliant!

George Michael on American Idol Brought Tears To My Eyes

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

He may not look as good as he used to, and he was battling a cold, but George Michael sang "Praying for Time" on the American Idol finale tonight and made me and Paula Abdul cry.

David Cook Is My Guitar Hero...And My American Idol!

Who knew David Cook had such good legs?
Hotness! If it couldn't be Michael Johns or Carly Smithson, I'm glad it was him and not David Archuleta or Brooke White. There are enough Mormons winning on reality TV!

Odd Couple Alert: Jude Law & Kimberly Stewart???

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

If there wasn't a pic of Jude Law locking lips with Rod Stewart's kinda skanky daughter Kimberly, I wouldn't have believed it.

The Sun reports the pair were found getting hot an heavy in a stranger's garden.

An onlooker revealed: “They were laying on the grass, rolling around and kissing.

“Their hands were everywhere. They looked like a couple of loved-up teenagers.”

The paper also reports that Jude was seen having drinks with Kimberly's rocker dad shortly before the gropefest.

Urgh, it just got worse. The Mirror claims that the pair were swigging bottles of pink champagne at a crappy club before they got frisky.

Pink champagne???

Watch out, Paris Hilton. Angry Chihuahuas Ahead

I love Chihuahuas. Can't wait for the Beverly Hills Chihuahua movie. Viva Chihuahuas! Talking dogs rule!

A Warning To Jennifer Aniston About John Mayer

Monday, May 19, 2008

Dear Jen,

Remember how you told Vanity Fair that your ex-husband, Brad Pitt, had a sensitivity chip missing?

Well, I just want to point out that while you are enjoying swapping spit with John Mayer now, this womanizer might be missing one of those chips, too.

Watch out, girlfriend. I'd hate to think of you sitting in your darkened living room curled up in the fetal position after he dumps your ass (cause you know he will).

Just ask Jessica Simpson or Cameron Diaz or Jennifer Love Hewitt or Minka Kelly or Mandy Moore about it...

And if you can't reach them, let me point out the following post from his website that he wrote to an ex-girlfriend:

Dear Ex

Perhaps you didn’t understand the last time I told you to stop contacting me, so I’ll do my best to spell it out for you. I do not wish to have you in my life anymore.

I don’t know how much more clear I can be about it. It would serve you best to move on with your life and find someone who can put up with you, because I’m done trying. I hope this is enough closure for you.

So while his kisses might be sweet, take my advice, Jen, and run, don't walk, away from him.

Dina Lohan's Show Is As Bad As I Imagined It Would Be

This woman is an even bigger nightmare than I imagined.
No wonder Lindsay Lohan has turned out the way she has.

Do You Think Pete and Ashlee's Wedding Night Looked Like This?

Sunday, May 18, 2008

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz got married this weekend in California. Ashlee's dad, Joe, officiated. Despite the fact that they'd reportedly broken up,Tony Romo was apparently forced to go as Jessica Simpson's date. I imagine Ashlee and Pete's wedding night pictures looked something like this.

Battle of the Celebrity Baby Bumps

Nicole Kidman trotted out her baby bump at the Country Music Awards tonight, but hers is miniscule compared to Angelina's, Gwen's, Jessica's and Jamie-Lynn's.

Harrison Ford Looks Old

I am looking forward to seeing the new Indiana Jones movie, but not if Harrison Ford looks like this.

Trailer: Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman in Australia

Looks good to me!

If David Archuleta Loses, He Can Totally Blame His Dad

Saturday, May 10, 2008

I know I've given up on American Idol this season, but I was not surprised to read that David Archuleta's dad, Jeff, has been banned from the set of the show. TMZ first reported it yesterday, and now the AP confirms that Jeff can no longer join his 17-year-old son backstage as he prepares for the show.

It's been clear from the start that poor David's song choices were not his own, and now we are hearing that the stage dad really crossed the line on Tuesday when, despite a warning, he insisted on altering "Stand by Me," one of two songs David sang on the show that night. By adding a verse from Sean Kingston's "Beautiful Girls," Jeff clocked up additional costs for American Idol, an insider told the AP.

While Jeff has been banished backstage, he is allowed to sit in the audience. TMZ claims that Jeff was previously banned by Star Search producers when David appeared on the talent show in 2003.

Kim Cattrall: I Did It For The Money

You've got to admire Kim Cattrall's honesty; the Sydney Daily Telegraph is reporting that Kim only did the Sex and the City movie for the multimillion-dollar payoff.

"Samantha's very near and dear to me and I had such a wonderful time [making the TV series] but I can't really ask more of that experience other than more financial security, because I feel like we did it and we did it so well,'' the 51-year-old actor told a British newspaper. "And I always felt that it was about the money.''

My Theory On Why Speed Racer Bombed

I haven't had seen Speed Racer yet as I'm laid up in bed with the head cold from hell, but I think there's an obvious reason why the film bombed in comparison to Iron Man.

Emile Hirsch
is no Robert Downey Jr. and Christina Ricci is no Gwyneth Paltrow.

Two words: Zac Efron. Apparently the Wachowskis were in talks with Zac but he didn't screen test well, as (according to the New York Daily News) he didn't connect with the romantic lead and he didn't seem believable as a leading man. While purists and older fans of the original series might have been outraged, let's face it, the film would have made a killing in its opening weekend with Zac.

As Julia Roberts said in Pretty Woman: Big mistake. Big. Huge.

Odd Couple Alert: Jeremy Piven and Pink

Friday, May 9, 2008

The New York Post is reporting that Jeremy Piven and Pink were seen getting hot and heavy on the dance floor at Green Door in LA on Tuesday night.

Their reps deny it, but the Piv's rep says, "Jeremy says she is a friend, a good woman."

To paraphrase Joe Piscopo as Frank Sinatra on Saturday Night Live, I think Pink has chunks of guys like Jeremy Piven in her stool. She is seriously scary.

Heath Ledger's Joker: Scary and Kinda Sexy

Is it wrong that I find Heath Ledger's scary incarnation of the Joker in the new Batman movie The Dark Knight sort of sexy?

John Mayer Explains How He Makes Music

John Mayer thinks he's a hell of a fun guy. So he made a video for Funnyordie.com explaining his songwriting process. I've got to give him credit for being self-deprecating, but I think Justin Timberlake is the funnier singer.

Stick To Acting Scarlett Johansson!

Who told Scarlett Johansson that she could sing?
Love her as an actress. Want to stab her as a singer.
My ears are bleeding.
I hope for new fiance Ryan Reynolds' sake that love isn't blind, it's deaf. (Is that Ryan's ex Alanis Morissette I hear laughing?)

Eva Mendes Gets Naked In Italian Vogue

Thursday, May 8, 2008

Eva Mendes gets in touch with her inner Sophia Loren and strips off in the new issue of Italian Vogue.

I'm surprised to see that her boobs aren't as spectacular as I imagined they'd be. Yay!

The only problem with this shoot and the Lindsay Lohan/Marilyn Monroe/New York magazine shoot before it is that the images have a skankiness that the originals didn't have back in the '50s. Toe sucking? Blech.

Eva's inspiration:

Reason #4968 That Britney and K-Fed Make Me Sick

Star magazine is reporting that Britney Spears and Kevin Federline have been having steamy phone sex sessions.

Recently, when Britney was having a sleepless night, she decided to call Kevin at nearly 2 a.m. Star reports. While they started off talking about their boys — Preston, 2, and Jayden, 20 months — the conversation soon turned to more intimate matters.

Star goes on to claim: As Britney hoped, Kevin knew exactly how to tire her out — with hours of erotic talk! "They have phone sex often — at least once a week," an insider says. "The one thing those two have in common is their need for sex, and after they get going, there are no holds barred."

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. Go to your happy place. Go to your happy place...

George Clooney's Girlfriend Dishes

The luckiest woman alive, Sarah Larson tells Harper's Bazaar that she wouldn't have dated George Clooney if he'd been on a reality show.

The former model and Fear Factor contestant said: "If George had been on a reality show, I don't think I'd have talked to him. It would have been like, 'That's nice.'

"I don't know," she adds. "He still wants to date me, and I ate a scorpion."

If I was her, I'd have more of a problem with him having been on shows like Facts of Life and Roseanne (where he had obscenely big hair and played a guy named Booker Brooks).

She also revealed in the interview that after she and George were injured in a motorbike accident that they spent their time on the couch watching Rock of Love marathons.

Finally! Proof that the sexiest man alive isn't perfect!

What Britney and Amy Winehouse Have In Common

They share a love of denim cut-offs. I think the visible pockets are a clear sign of diminished mental capacity.

Doesn't Take Much To Make Me Happy

"Best of My Love" by The Emotions.

Real or Wax?

Even Madame Tussaud did a double-take when she saw this pic of the Beckhams at the Costume Institute Gala.

Another Sordid Entry For Amy Winehouse's Diary

Wednesday, May 7, 2008

Amy Winehouse has a $2 million book deal.

Today she added another chapter to her tale of woe when she was arrested in connection with a January video that showed her smoking crack.

I like to imagine her book as being like Bridget Jones's Diary and going something like this.

Wednesday, May 7
Weight: Too drunk to focus on the bloody scale, but I think it said 17 pounds.
Calories consumed: 853 (from beer, a chicken drumstick I found in my beehive and one tooth that I swallowed accidentally)
Cigarettes: Lost count after I nodded off in a crack haze.

Today I got one step closer to being reunited with my Blake incarcerated. But they released me on bail. (Damn that Mark Darcy!) What does a girl have to do to be locked in the same cell as her man? Last month I slapped a bloke and they locked me up. But it wasn't in the same jail as my beloved. I guess I'm going to have to try a little harder next time.

John Cusack Not A Douche After All

The guy who slammed John Cusack a few weeks ago claims his comments were taken out of context.

Paul Leyden says he was joking about Lloyd Dobler being a nightmare to work with.

"I feel terrible that I've said something about someone I have absolute admiration and respect for," he told the Sydney Daily Telegraph. "It was said in a jovial way and I've been misconstrued. I was joking."

Phew. Crush officially back on.

Mariah & Nick: I Give It Six Months

Less than a year ago, Nick Cannon proposed to Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks on the Jumbotron at Times Square (after dating her for just six weeks). Six months later they split.

Nick got engaged to Mariah Carey in April - after dating her for a few weeks. And now they're married... Am I the only one who sees a pattern here?

I ain't sayin' he's a golddigger, but I have one word to say to you, Mariah. Prenup.

According to the new issue of People magazine, Mariah says they are "soulmates."

I wonder how Nick feels about sleeping in a steam room and being married to a woman who only wants to be photographed showing the right side of her face, has an obsession with butterflies and Hello Kitty, believes she has an alter ego named Mimi and has a room in her home dedicated to her fans (her lambs).

On second thoughts, they'll be lucky to make it to six months. That bitch is crazy!
