Nick, I understand you’re asking for spousal support from Jessica. I’m here to tell you that that’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. Even though she was clearly the brains behind the whole Nick and Jessica phenomenon, you’re still extremely talented, and you have a long career ahead of you. Why in the world would you need more money than you will already make with your music, TV shows, and movies? Just make a clean break with her and move on to your next project. Otherwise, you’ll just seem greedy.

Best Week Ever spotlights the talk show host’s hard-hitting interview tactics.
Slashdot has the story that PBS will be airing six new Monty Python specials, each of which:
will focus on one member of the original
Monty Python troupe…and showcase favorite clips from the group’s
television series and movies, mixed with new footage. The five living Pythons…will each produce and write their own
episode, with the five collaborating on a sixth special to honor deceased
member [Graham] Chapman.
I know this could be one of those painful "why are they trampling on their legacy" deals, but against all good sense, I’m looking forward to this series.
Are you totally freaking out about the bird flu and the possibility that the cough you have is really a sign that your body is eating itself from the insides and you’ll soon turn into a zombie alongside the rest of the global population?
Here’s something that will make you feel better for a few minutes. In Attack of the Influenza Birds, you’ve got to shoot as many chickens infected with the H5N1 virus as possible and save the world. No pressure, though.
So Jon Stewart is getting ready to host the Oscars. Now, we here at Best Week Ever have no doubt that he will do a stellar job. He’s Jon Stewart. But we were hoping you could lend him a hand by writing out some jokes for this first timer. So who do you want him to go after? Should he pull a Chris Rock and attack Jude Law, or a David Letterman and harrass Uma Thurman? Should he pull a Billy Crystal and sing a song, or a Whoopi Goldberg and shave off his eyebrows? Again, totally your call.
After all that Jon Stewart’s done for you, it’s the least you can do. So leave your ideas in the comments section and who knows… maybe he’ll use your jokes at the big event (Assuming he reads this blog, of course.)
TMZ has a special investigative report on underage Hollywood stars and their hard partying ways. The website has pictures and footage of several young celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Mary Kate Olsen, Jesse McCartney and Frankie Muniz drinking and attending clubs they’re too young to get into. While this kind of partying is nothing new for hot teen stars like Lindsay and Mary Kate , who’s attendance gives any club a boost; it’s a major coup for teen squirts McCartney and Muniz who probably have to tell their friends to "just go in without me" fairly often. We’d like to give both Jesse and Frankie the requisite high five for finally making it past the bouncer. You go l’il bros!
It’s being reported that Tom Cruise might be thinking about perhaps suing Life & Style and biographer Andrew Morton. Since it’s been a little while since Tom Cruise has sued anybody, I thought I would refresh your memory about some of his lawsuits so you’ll be prepared for the new ones, should they indeed happen:
- The wrestler: Cruise sued Chad Slater (an "erotic wrestler" who goes by the name Kyle Bradford) for $100 million. Verdict: Cruise wins (but not for full amount).
- The sex coach: Cruise sued the Star tabloid for a story claiming they had "needed a sex coach for their steamy scenes in Stanley Kubrick’s film, Eyes Wide Shut." Verdict: settled, retraction printed.
