It’s A Beautiful Day In McCain’s Neighborhood

We, like many of you, tuned in to last night’s Presidential debate only to be put to sleep by the overall snooziness of the whole affair. Sure, there were some golden digs – especially directed at moderator Tom Brokaw – but for the most part, it was like watching that cool stay at home dad bicker with that cranky retired dude from down the street who drives a golf cart instead of a car. But hey, replace that frown with a smile and drop a red sweater his shoulders, and John McCain suddenly bears a striking resemblance to one of America’s most iconic old dudes. All he needs is some fish to feed and some Keds on his feet, and we’ll all be moving to Arizona to be his neighbor. Don’t you agree, friends?

Peter Cook: I Just Wanted Attention

Christie Brinkley‘s ex-husband Peter Cook sits down to chit chat with Barbara Walters for 20/20 about his tumultuous divorce from the supermodel. He basically tells Babs that he boned an 18-year-old because Christie wasn’t paying attention to him. Peter tells Barbara that he started banging Diana Bianchi, his teenage assistant, because, “I was seeking a connection I could not find in my own marriage. I think the emotional aspect of our lives had changed. I think we were both feeling more like we were living with a brother and sister than a life partner. … I think I just suddenly realized when I was getting attention from someone else that this is something that is missing in my life.”

As for his proclivity for philandering, ie. internet porn and voyeurism, he says, “I wanted a little acknowledgment, a little attention, a little thank you every now and then…”

And why, after humiliating himself in divorce court is he sitting down with 20/20 and airing his dirty laundry again? “My hope is that the world will see that I’m not the scum bag pervert that I’ve been painted to be.”

So what is the proper term for a married guy who pulls a teenager out of a toy store, puts her to work in his office, and then bones her in a home he owns with his wife? [Source:ABC]

Ivana Trump Accuses Sarah Palin Of Driving Two Hours To Meet Her

Troopergate. The Alaskan Independence Party. 12-hour flights with leaking amniotic sacs. Flute solos. Such so-called controversies involving VP nominee Sarah Palin seem all too trivial when compared to the bombshell found in the upcoming issue of Page Six Magazine. If the mainstream media still has any self-respect, they’ll force Palin to say whether she truly saw Alaska as so devoid of any “glamor or culture” that she would drive two hours to pal around with Ivana Trump at the start of her political career. A hockey mom…seeking “culture?” From Ivana Trump? Scary, but true.

In September, Politico discovered an Anchorage Daily News article from 1996 about a “commercial fisherman” from Wasilla, Alaska—Sarah Palin—who drove two hours to see Ivana Trump at JC Penney. Said Palin, “We want to see Ivana, because we are so desperate in Alaska for any semblance of glamor and culture.” Now Page Six Magazine has received confirmation of these allegiations from Ivana herself.

Debate of 2008: Lindsay Lohan’s Boobs

Another day, another debate. While yesterday’s may have been of the political sort, today’s is of the anatomical. The argument lies beneath Lindsay Lohan‘s tank top. Photos taken of her shopping yesterday (seen above) displayed a balloon shape uncharacteristic of natural breasts. After further analysis (see photos below), the jury’s out. So we at Scandalist call on you, fellow Americans, to stare at Lindsay’s knockers… are they real or fake?

Halle Berry Is The Hottest

Halle Berry was just named by Esquire magazine as the hottest woman alive. Lucky! It’s a no brainer, really – she’s ridiculously attractive, and unlike other women who’ve graced the cover of the men’s mag, she seems relatively down to earth and cool, too. And as everyone knows – she just had a baby. A baby! And she looks like that?! The mag got Halle to write up some thoughts on what being sexy is all about – enjoy her words, and some super sexy pics, below.

Does being the sexiest woman alive imply that I know a thing or two about what’s sexy and, possibly, about sex itself? I’m not sure, but here’s what I do know: I know damned well I’m sexier now than I used to be. Let me make an argument here — not so much for me, or even for my age being sexy, but for what I’ve learned. I’ve picked up a little over the years. Sexy is not about wearing sexy clothes or shaking your booty until you damn near get hip dysplasia; it’s about knowing that sexiness is a state of mind — a comfortable state of being. It’s about loving yourself even in your most unlovable moments. I know a little bit about that.

Divorce Almost Drove Bill Murray To Skydive Without Parachute

To promote his new movie, City Of Ember, Bill Murray has given one of those “after the rain” interviews to the Associated Press, where he talks about his divorce from Jennifer Butler Murray. Butler Murray, his wife of 11 years, accused the comedian of abuse, as well as sex and drug addiction—claims Murray has yet to deny. While he has visitation rights with their four children, Murray is still rattled by the experience. “It’s like your faith in people is destroyed because the person you trusted the most you can no longer trust at all…the person you know isn’t there anymore.” Who cheated on who, again?

Surprisingly, for a guy accused of hitting his wife and living in an alcoholic haze, Murray says his lowest moment came when someone offered him the chance to skydive at an air show. “I didn’t even care if there was a parachute. Of course, by the time I got there I had had a few good days and I thought, ‘What am I doing?’”

Nightingale Poo Is So Posh

Posh Spice is always one for trying new things – from her oft-imitated bob to her heel-less boots to her newest beauty regimen – a luxurious facial containing bird crap?! Posh is reportedly raving about the Geisha facial, which is derived from nightingale poo. Yumm!

“When Victoria was in Japan recently she was admiring the local women’s clear skin and discovered it was down to these facials,” a friend of the 34-year-old star recently told Closer magazine. “She tried it and loved how great her skin looked. She also uses a cream derived from nightingale poo at home.”
