Ethan Embry, the possibly autistic actor known for such crushable films as Empire Records, Can’t Hardly Wait and Dutch, was robbed at gunpoint on Sunday night. TMZ reports:
TMZ has confirmed the “Can’t Hardly Wait” star told police that two men recognized him from his film and TV roles, and robbed him and wife Sunny Mabrey in their driveway. The thugs allegedly stole Embry’s wallet containing $400, a watch, and threatened Mabrey.
As the men fled in a silver SUV, one eyewitness tells TMZ that Ethan raced into his house, emerged with a handgun and fired three rounds — though it is unclear whether they were in the air or toward the vehicle.
We still can’t decide what’s most shocking: 1. That Ethan Embry owns a handgun; 2. That Ethan Embry knows how to fire a handgun; 3. That Ethan Embry has $400; or 4. That Ethan Embry’s girlfriend was the stewardess in Snakes on a Plane.
With a rebel yell, she cried more more more. And now, with a desperate plea, we cry stop stop stop! Billy Idol, clearly in the Billy Mack phase of his career (how’s that for an obscure reference?) is releasing a Christmas album. We’re not sure how “punk” it is, but it certainly jingle-bell-rocks. Take it away, Billy.
Wow. Just… wow. We hear that if this wins the UK’s Christmas Number 1 Single contest Billy will perform naked on TV (yeah, that’s another Love Actually reference. Shut up.)

This morning on The View, Rosie O’Donnell came to the defense of Danny Devito‘s slightly-slurred appearance on the show yesterday, clearing him from any alcoholism accusations. Rosie then went on to say that many guests on her former talk show used to arrive drunk — she wouldn’t name names — and one blind item that we need to crack:
Rosie: Once there was a person on, and I met them in the green room before and they were fine, and then they were alone for a half-hour. And when they came out on the show, they had a burn mark on the face from…
Barbara Walters: Freebasing.
Rosie: Yeah. Which was so sad. And during the whole interview — cause it was live TV, like yesterday, all I kept thinking of is “How can you help this kid?”
So there you have it kids, the question of the day: Who was freebasing backstage at The Rosie O’Donnell Show? Also, we love how Barbara seems to know so much about it… Leave your guesses in the comments.
Maybe we’re biased because we’re bloggers (or are we bloggers because we’re biased?), but this Michael Scott-esque sketch had us chuckling heartily.

Hey Rachel Zoe! We know you must be feeling pretty down lately. Nicole Richie dumps you. She then basically accuses you of having an eating disorder and/or asparagus pee. Oh, and she calls you a raisin face. Mischa Barton hardly even texts anymore. You’re embarassed, you’re stressed, you’re certainly not eating… you need a rebound celeb. A young starlet so desperately in need of fashion advice, that you alone will be given sole credit for her complete transformation. Someone you can revamp, makeover, re-style and re-fabulize. Well, Rachel Zoe, sit down and let us introduce you to your next lump of clay…
Ms. Dakota Fanning! Dakota Fanning will be 13 years old in a couple of months, and yet, she insists on leaving her house looking like Little Bo Peep meets Lampshade McGinty. She needs a guru, Rachel, a “big sister”, who can hold her hand through the likes of Barneys New York and swaddle her petite but shamefully growing frame in all the season’s hottest 50-yard wraps. Need more proof?
Let’s see how lil’ Dakota would fare with Rachel’s help…

You’ve seen the commercial– Indianapolis Colts tight end Dallas Clark catches a pass in Madden ’07, only to be drilled by two Philadelphia Eagles players over and over and over again as the folks playing the game laugh and shout and scream and groan. It seems like everybody’s having a good time… everybody except Dallas. The man is not a fan.
“Everyone is talking about my face and my grunting and the noises I make,” Clark said. “It sounds like I’m dying. I want to know why the people picked me. If they come and ask me, ‘Hey, we’re going to make you look bad, is that OK?’ (but) they didn’t ask me.”
Aww, poor guy. Watch the video here. Think he’s overreacting?
