While You Were Having Your Prison Blues Pressed



  • Halle Berry says she still experiences discrimination on a regular basis. It’s true – people who have a blind, ignorant hatred of attractiveness can be very cruel.
  • Kevin Bacon showed up at the opening of Manhattan’s newest Apple Store in hopes of scoring some free stuff. A surly employee at the Genius Bar denied his request, but said he’d throw Bacon some free earphones if he’d go behind the pull-down screen and do the Footloose dance in silhouette like the iPod commercials.
  • Brad Pitt sent an e-mail to the Cannes Film Festival, apologizing for his absence due the “imminent arrival” of his baby. Festival organizers were unimpressed, noting that Tom Cruise not only would have been there, but would have skydived onto the red carpet from an F-16 Fighter Jet, proudly holding his newborn child in fresh swaddling.
  • Jennifer Aniston says her man Vince Vaughn is the “cream of the crop“. And by “cream of the crop” she means “A far cry from Brad Pitt, but has both a pulse and a vague interest”.
  • Jon Favreau, director of the upcoming film adaptation of the Iron Man comic book series, is taking suggestions for the film from fans on MySpace. I think I remember something about Orson Welles taking advice from his “pen pal fan club” via pony express during the filming of Citizen Kane.

ICYMI: Kelly Ripa Smells Like Fish


Usually Kelly Ripa is strictly G-rated, but on today’s Live with Regis and Kelly, after tasting one too many Cabernets, she dropped a bomb–and let me tell you, it stinks. This may just be the most inappropriate comment ever made on a morning show, and the best. For your consideration…

LISTEN UP: BWE’s Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever

  • So I was lucky enough to see Gnarls Barkley last night. Just an unbelievable show. Of course “Crazy” brought down the house, but “Smiley Face” was the highlight for me. Head on over to KRLX Music and download it now if you don’t already have it. Then go buy the album.
  • Baltimore’s Spank Rock opened up. After doing an elbo search I was able to find a few tracks over at Analog Giant and To Die By Your Side. Let’s put it this way: They were so good I was worried Gnarls wouldn’t be able to follow them.
  • Okay, moving on. Eardrums Shall Fail has a great mix posted today, including tracks by The Shins, Razorlight, Cat Power and Erykah Badu.
  • Our boy Stereogum has a great cover of The Smiths‘ “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out” by The Magic Numbers. What a great combination.
  • And finally, Funtime USA has the entire DFA Spring Radio Mix. You have to download it, you know, because it’s Spring. It would just make sense.

Blair hits the Big Apple


welchelLast week was a whirlwind for Lisa Welchel aka Blair from the The Facts of Life. Welchel–now a devout Christian, author and proponant of punishing kids with hot sauce–joined the old gang including Mindy Cohn and Nancy McKean in New York City to promote the DVD release of the series. Well it’s been a while since the church-going Texan has been in the big city, and according to her blog, things have changed.

GAMES: It’s K-Fed Man!


kfed man 2.JPGEverybody needs to stop talkin’ about how my man K-Fed needs to get a job. He HAS a job: he’s a mothaf**king superhero, G. True? True.

Check out K-Fed Man, courtesy of the Kevin Federline Fan Club. Help K-Fed Man get back at the “pavorattis” by blasting them with hot rhymes. It’s as dumb as it sounds, but I’ll be damned if the soundtrack isn’t better than anything Federline himself has ever come out with. Enjoy.

It’s May 23rd; What’s up?


tv set4.jpgWe can pretend that tonight isn’t only about American Idol. We can pretend that you’re genuinely interested in how 10.5: Apocalypse wraps up, or that you care about the season finale of Pepper Dennis. But who are we kidding? The only thing that matters tonight is Taylor and Katherine. The Soul Patrol dude and the (alleged) Scientologist chick. On tonight’s final performance episode they’re both going to sing a bunch of songs and millions and millions of Americans will vote. Hell, I might. Are you? Come on, admit it. You’re thinking about it, aren’t you? Yeah you are.

Well, besides American Idol, what else are you watching tonight? Vote now!

SIZZLER: Dr. 90210 A Hero!


REY.jpgDr. Robert Rey , the Beverly Hills plastic surgeon and star of E’s reality show Dr. 90210, is a true hero. Not only does make really rich women look younger but he used his black belt in karate to prevent a hostile takeover on a plane bound for LA. Apparently, the plastic surgeon was sitting in first class when a big, brawny deranged man * on his flight charged for the pilot’s cabin. Luckily Rey is a practiced martial arts master, and used his prowess to tackle the offender before he could attack the pilot. Nobody was hurt in the incident. **

*According to police reports the offender was actually an 80 year old Vietnamese man who was simply suffering from a case claustrophobia.
**Rey may have broken a nail in the incident.

Angelina Update: Still Holding in Baby


brad-pitt-oyster-bar.jpg I used to really like Angelina Jolie, but I’m starting to think she’s just a tease. These pictures via Just Jared show that on Saturday night, when Angelina was supposed to be in labor, she was actually having dinner with Brad, the kids, her brother and her bodyguard at a restaurant called The Oyster Bar in Namibia. OH MY GOD, why won’t this women give birth already? She got us so hot for this baby, and made us think we’d actually be writing about it, but now she’s just giving us a bad case of blue blog.
