The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford has got it all: cowboys, a passionate relationship between two men, and super-duper star Brad Pitt (in stirrups no less). So it should be a hit, right? Wrong. Historically, movie titles with more than four words haven’t been successful because audiences can’t remember what it’s called and reviewers don’t want to write the whole damn thing out more than once. Check out this list of movies with long titles. You’ll find there really hasn’t been a blockbuster with a mega-title since Dr. Strangelove or how I learned to …(see I’ve already given up).
So from now on for the sake of everyone involved (but mostly me), can we just call The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, The New Brad Pitt Movie? Because really, that’s what it is.

Now, some people look at this picture and what do they say? “This is an outrage! Pete Doherty is injecting heroin into an unconscious fan! That’s disgusting!” Fair enough.
But that’s not what I see. I see Pete coming to the aid of a big Babyshambles fan the only way he knows how– with drugs. I’m sure he meant well. I’m sure he saw a passed out woman and wanted to help. But once he grabbed her arm and checked for a pulse he had an uncontrollable Pavlovian response and couldn’t stop himself from instinctively jamming a needle into her vein. You can’t fault the guy for that, can you?
Oh. You can? Nevermind then. [Read The Sun’s article here]
“Extra” is reporting that Rosie O’Donnell is expected to take over Merideth Vieira’s chair at the Algonquin roundtable of daytime television known as “The View”. This shocking addition to the talk show’s estrogen-charged equation leaves the mind reeling with questions. Is Joy Behar really prepared to deal with an angry lesbian who has a daily axe to grind? Will Rosie end up leaving her life partner for a sexually-awakened Elisabeth Hasselbeck? How long before “The View” is renamed “The Show In Which Rosie O’Donnell Yells At Other Women and Occasionally Punches Star Jones-Reynolds”?
Only time – and TiVo – will tell.

Omarosa, the lovable villain from back in the day when people still watched The Apprentice, will do anything to get on another reality show. Sure she’s drawn out her career with appearances on Fear Factor and the Surreal Life, but as her options dwindle she’s had to be more creative.
So before she gets packed into a time capsule with Crunk Juice and Jason Alexander, quick-thinking Omarosa has opted to get a boob job on Discovery Health Channel’s Plastic Surgery: Before and After. We’re not sure what will land her more work: bigger boobs or another reality show appearance. Perhaps the combination will land her one last invitation to the Blockbuster Awards. I hear they have great gift bags.

James Mardsen is currently filming the upcoming Disney movie Enchanted in New York’s Time Square and based on this picture, he’s got a lot on his mind. Here’s what we think he’s thinking:
I think the squirrel that’s nesting in my left shoulder just had her babies.
