Ohhhhh, good morning, little ones!! Gross. What was that? “Little ones?” Too bad there’s literally no way to delete things on these modern typewriter-TVs.
So here’s what’s going on. Ian McKellen attended a protest in London’s Hyde Park where people gathered to demonstrate against the Pope. The Pope. Not Beau Pope. Beau Pope is just a guy I went to high school with. And at this protest, Ian McKellen… by the way I’m talking about the Ian McKellen, not Ian Sobel who is just a guy I went to college with who some people thought looked like Dave Horwitz, but I never agreed. I am, of course talking about the Dave Horwitz I also went to college with and not the David Horowitz who is a conservative writer and policy advocate.
Yeah, so Ian McKellen was at this protest wearing a tee shirt that said, “Some people are gay. Get over it,” which is an entirely good and reasonable sentiment to tell a Pope on your tee shirt, no sarco (“no sarco” is a thing I made up just now that is “no homo” for sarcasm). Then what happened was somebody took a picture of Ian McKellen wearing that shirt and made a really great photoshop joke. And here it is. This morning’s best photoshop joke:
Thanks, The Daily What. Reposting your blog posts is the new blogging.
The five stars of The Breakfast Club reunited this weekend for a John Hughes tribute in New York City. Hughes’ death of a heart attack just over one year ago left us a little shaken – even though the teens in his films were a few years older than us, they depicted adolescence in a way we haven’t seen since, and we’re Hughes disciples of the highest order. Not to mention the fact that his trio of high school films, The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink, and Sixteen Candles, marked the genesis of The Brat Pack, the group of young actors including Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Rob Lowe and Demi Moore, who were known for starring – and partying – together during the mid 1980s.
So whatever happened to the Brat Pack? Some of them, like Robert Downey, Jr., have found more success now than ever, and others, like say, Mare Winningham, found that their star burned out before it even got to shine. More often than not though, after a dark period called the 1990s, these actors reemerged and found success on television and in movies and most importantly, on Twitter. Journey with us to a land of prom, record stores and fancy cars and see what became of them…
Here’s Russell Brand at the Legend Of The Guardians premiere, posing (and possibly doing lines with) this owl (unconfirmed):
The most shocking part about this photo, at least to me, is the fact that a Legends Of The Guardians: The Owls Of Ga’Hoole premiere party means that it’s more likely that Legends Of The Guardians: The Owls Of Ga’Hoole is a real movie. I’ve been seeing the ads for months now, and the proposed owl film doesn’t look bad per se, but I just cannot bring myself to believe it is an actual movie that humans have made and are now promoting it for other humans.
The trailer actually includes the line “One owl…will save us all.” Not a real movie, right? When a trailer says that, it’s a fake trailer for a fake movie. I am basing that on my knowledge. Have fun getting punk’d next week, people going to see Legends Of The Guardians: The Owls Of Ga’Hoole! I’ll be staying home watching the only TRUE owl movie: That One Part In My Cousin Vinny.
Katy Perry started off her weekend like a total celebrity – mobbed by paparazzi at LAX, her fiancé Russell Brand was arrested after an altercation where one paparazzo tried to take an inappropriate photo of Katy. (Perry tweeted about the incident, writing: “If you cross the line & try an put a lens up my dress, my fiancé will do his job & protect me. #standbyyourman #don‘tf*ckwiththeBrands.”) Then, twenty four hours later, Katy was in Vegas engaging in what has become and American rite of passage, her own bachelorette party, complete with binge drinking and Cirque du Soleil.
Sure, not everyone who has their bachelorette party in Vegas is accompanied by their best friend and party giver, Rihanna, but it all sounds refreshingly normal and fun to us. On Saturday afternoon, Katy, RiRi and 25 of their closest friends hung out at the Hard Rock Hotel pool, drank, Tweeted about drinking, and then took the official transportation of obnoxious partiers everywhere, the stretch Hummer limo, to the Cirque du Soleil show where they met the show’s cast, then headed to dinner and a strip club. Personally, we can’t get over the part where they met the cast at Cirque – just look at them all. We’re used to Katy and Rihanna being the flashiest people in the room, but they can’t even compare with these people!
For more pics of Katy’s hen party (as they say across the pond), check out our gallery below, it’s quite a cast of characters. And as for Russell Brand, he was charged with misdemeanor battery by the LAPD and was later released. All in all, a busy weekend for the pair.

This could have turned out very badly, so we’re thankful everyone’s okay.Ã‚Â Ricki Lake‘s Malibu rental home burnt down over the weekend, and as you can see from this picture, there’s pretty much nothing’s left. What’s even more frightening is that she was in the house, along with her two sons and dog when it started going up in flames, but luckily, managed to get out safely.
She told firemen that she was trying to refuel a heater when the couch caught fire, and being a wooden home, things quickly went downhill from there. Lake’s currently crashing with friends, and apparently, lost a lot of personal stuff in the fire, which is, as it would be for everyone, quite traumatic. Glad everyone’s safe though!
As someone who spent all of high school being a third wheel, we can tell you without a doubt that you couldn’t pay us to live through that again. However, if the pair you’re going to hang out with is one of the most famous (and famously private) couples in the world, that may be a different story – a story one lucky/crazy/wealthy Twilight fan is willing to pay $60,100 for.
The superfan, a bidder in an eBay auction, beat out hundreds of other bidders for the privilege of hanging out on the set of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, which includes an all-expenses-paid trip to Vancouver, a day on the set of the film, plus some quality time with stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. The money, while an exorbitant price to pay just to hang with Bella and Edward, will go to the Stand Up To Cancer charity.
Obviously if we had the money, we’d be into hanging on the set as long as the proceeds went to a good cause, but we’re still just impressed by how much the winner ended up paying. How much would you pay to hang out with your favorite stars for a day?

So that’s why she dropped 30K on a purse! Kim Kardashian and Miles Austin have broken up, after just three months of dating. People do strange things when they split up. Kim, apparently, goes on shopping splurges. Nothing says, “I’m ok” more than Hermes (*sniff*, we prefer Chanel)!
We don’t know why we’re rubbing this in our own faces, but the last time we went through relationship-disposal, waddling around the house was our mode of recovery. Don’t judge us, you’ve done the same! But Kimmy K does it in style… she celebrates her single status in Paris. Here’s a gun. Go ahead and shoot us.
But what brought on the sudden break, you ask? A source explained to People, ” There’s no huge reason except their distance. With his season and Kim’s filming, it just slowly split them apart. They tried to keep it as low profile as possible when they were together.”
The source also added that the split is a bummer (and it was mutual), because Kim and her NFL’er were actually quite into each other, saying, “They were acting as if they were single or just having fun, but they never were – it was the real deal. They were always strong, but before Kim left for Europe they decided it’s not fair that they don’t get to spend more time together and ended it.”
Awww Kim, have some crème glacée on us. It ain’t an Hermes purse, but it’s the best we can do!

The game show “Name That Guy” may just be a brief Late Night With Jimmy Fallon sketch, but honestly, if it were an actual show I’d watch the crap out of it. Though granted, I’d watch anything that freely incorporates Home Improvement graphics. Like Home Improvement reruns, for example. That’s the only example. But I would watch this:
Part 2 after the jump:
For a country singer, LeAnn Rimes doesn’t know much about cheatin’ heartsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦or sneaking around. The singer is spitting mad that Wendy Williams mocked Rimes’ affair with Eddie Cibrian, saying “It’s all very sloppy.” Williams also took issue with Rimes’ calling Cibran’s sons “my boys”. Chastised Williams,”The boys have a mother, and her name is Brandi [Glanville].” If we were LeAnn, we’d just feel lucky Eddie’s ex hasn’t taken a baseball bat to our truck’s windshield, or some equally poetic revenge.
Rimes called Williams out after the comments, tweeting “I’m incredibly disappointed to see someone with that kind of platform use it for such negativity and could be so mean and judgmental about a situation they know nothing about”. Listen, this is Americah; if you are going to talk about your illicit affair in public, Wendy Williams reserves the right to rip you a new one. It’s in the Declaration of Independence, right where we doodled it in the margins.
Wendy isn’t the only diva putting his or her two cents in about LeAnn’s infidelity. Rimes’ ex Dean Sheremet chimed in to disagree with LeAnn’s version of their divorce, explaining “I was very content and satisfied. I put myself on hold to funnel all my creative energy into her career and our marriage… I was blindsided and shocked that she of all people would do this to the closest person in her life.” Next time you’re tempted to discuss sleeping around in Shape, LeAnn, just talk about your insane abs, not your inner most personal confessions. SERIOUSLY, those abs are sick.
