- Tom Cruise’s spokesperson is begging the media to give Tom, Katie & “Suri” their privacy. Though the quotes around “Suri” are mine, not theirs.
- Jessica Simpson says her ideal man is Brad Pitt in the movie “Fight Club.” Which I think means that her ideal man would actually just be a figment of Ed Norton’s imagination. Deep.
- Jaime Pressly says Paris Hilton, Cindy Crawford and Elle MacPherson should all give up acting. Thank God we have legitimate actresses like Poison Ivy III‘s Jaime Pressly dictating who should do what in Hollywood.
- Paris Hilton doesn’t have many friends left because so many of them have betrayed her by selling stories to the media. Not because she’s a horrible, manipulative, unlikeable c**t. That has nothing to do with it– it’s their fault.
- The Orange County band Supernova has filed a complaint against Mark Burnett’s reality show Rock Star: Supernova. The band was absolutely stunned that somebody else was able to come up with such an original name.

The fearless investigative journalists over at TMZ have blown another hole in the case against Suri Cruise’s existence by uncovering some shocking – shocking! – discrepancies between the birth certificate of Suri and the birth certificate of Brooke Shields’ daughter, who happened to be born the same day. Supposedly the same registered nurse signed both documents, but neither of which bears her official license number, thereby casting doubt on their authenticity. There’s too much brain-bending information and irony at play here to even attempt thinking too hard on it, but evaluate this latest evidence and form your own opinions on whether or not it should be taken suri-ously (suri, I could help myself. Okay, I’ll stop now.)
Got something of your own you want us to see? Drop it now!
Last night Amy Sedaris went on The Colbert Report to promote her new movie Strangers With Candy (in which Stephen also happens to star). I won’t disprespect what happened next by trying to explain it – just enjoy!
Lindsay Lohan plans on showing off her raunchy side by publishing a book of sexy photographs. Please note, this is much different than when Lindsay shows off her raunchy side by doing just about everything else. This is art.
The book will be titled “Narcissist” and Lindsay can’t wait to show the world her sensual side. She also can’t wait to find out what the word “narcissist” means, and plans on doing so once one of her assistants looks it up for her.
“It’s my body. And I like my body. And I like my breasts. And no, they’re not fake. I think a woman’s body is so much more sensual than a man’s. I’m not saying strip off all your clothes, but there are certain photos I like people taking of me, where I’m comfortable. As long as it’s tasteful. Why not?”
So there you have it. Sounds like Lindsay is taking a page out of the Madonna handbook. But I swear, if there are any pictures of her humping Vanilla Ice, I’m out of here.
If you want to kill massive amounts of brain cells and don’t have any paint thinner or airplane glue handy for huffing, a nifty trick is tuning in to The Real World on MTV. The ‘Key West’ incarnation of TV’s original “reality show” produces the same brain-numbing effect without the unpleasant odor of chemical substances – I know from experience. In the two episodes I was required to watch this season, the only thing that made be feel anything other than outright loathing for the incomprehensible stupidity of everyone involved was the soul-crushing human tragedy known as Paula Ann Meronek. A Real World producer’s wet dream, Paula Ann brought sorority girl hotness to the house, along with both a serious eating disorder and an abusive boyfriend that she insisted “still really does love her”. Exemplified by the episode in which said boyfriend “says he’s sorry” for hitting her by sending a care package of Cristal champagne, watching her brainless brand of self destruction would have been hilarious if it wasn’t so completely depressing. Anyway, I guess the bubbly buzz has worn off because yesterday Paula was arrested and charged with assault after biting her boyfriend during another domestic dispute. Hopefully he’ll arrive at county lock-up with caviar and a bottle of Dom – otherwise, this relationship could be in “real” trouble.
