IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Cheney Speaks About Shooting


Dick Cheney came out of his bunker to talk to Brit Hume about what happened the other day, you know when he shot some guy in the face. Apparently, Cheney said it was his fault, but Hume held Cheney close, stroked his head, and said, "There, there. You aren’t to blame. It was the White House press corps. They are to blame." Then Cheney fell asleep in Hume’s arms. Unfortunately, we didn’t get that last part.

The Next Top Model


Top_modelThe sixth season of America’s Next Top Model starts in a couple of weeks (March 8), but Just Jared has already posted a whole slew of photgraphs of the new contestants. (click the thumbnail to enlarge)

You can start doing your homework on these girls at the official UPN site too.

So, who’s your early favorite? Is it Nnenna with the 4 "n’s" in her name? Is it the pouty 6’1" giant Sara? Is it Leslie, who lists "Asian" as her favorite food? Or how about Jade, the girl who admits that Martin is her favorite TV show?

I don’t know who it’s going to be, but I can’t wait to watch these girls battle it out. (For the record, I think I’ll be rooting for Gina, but only because her favorite movie is Schindler’s List.)

Is the Brrreeeport Having the Best Week Ever?



A couple of days ago, this guy invented the Brrreeeport and called for everyone to say “brrreeeport” on their blogs so they would be listed on this Technorati page automatically. He said he wanted to "mess with the man," but he really wanted to test out blog search engines. In the process, he started the Brrreeeport Revolution.

It’s not too early to join, so type "Brrreeeport" into you blog and you might have the Best Week Ever!

Jennifer Aniston & Vince Vaughn Break Up!



Well… sort of.

Watch the brand new trailer for their upcoming film The Break-Up here.

It just dawned on me; maybe that’s what these Hollywood couples need to do. Make movies about breaking up. Every time a real life couple makes a movie about falling in love, either the movie is awful (Madonna & Guy Richie in Swept Away) or the relationship falls apart (Tom Cruise & Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut.) Maybe if these actors act like they don’t like one another on-screen it’ll force them to act like they do like each other even more off-screen.

God I’m smart. I’m off to Hollywood to be a therapist to the stars right now.

While You Were Gorging Yourself on Chocolate Hearts


  • While visiting London, Paris Hilton said she’d like to go to "Celebrity Love Island", a UK reality show she mistook for an actual place.  When informed of her misunderstanding, Paris was reportedly crushed that her lifelong quest to rule over a utopian paradise populated by people less intelligent than herself will have to remain a distant fantasy.Pamkfc
  • Beyonce Knowles revealed that she once danced naked in a room full of men when her dress accidentally fell off.  This of course doesn’t include all the times she’s danced naked in rooms full of record executives, producers, talent agents, strip club patrons and other men who could help make her famous.
  • Pamela Anderson says she’s officially boycotting the Kentucky Derby due to their affiliation with PETA-enemy Kentucky Fried Chicken.   We think Pam is just jealous because KFC has the only breasts people love more than hers.
  • Bruce Willis boldly criticizes Oprah’s handling of the James Frey controversy.  Tune in to Oprah next week to see Bruce Willis get a very stern talking-to. 
  • Vince Vaughn has reportedly warned hubby Jennifer Anniston to stop talking about ex Brad Pitt so much.  I know I always hate it when I start dating someone new and all they can ever talk about is how their last boyfriend was  "Sexiest Man Alive" this and "Hollywood’s  Hottest Hunk" that.  SO annoying.
  • Mariah Carey is blaming her dress for her imperfect appearance at the Grammy Awards.  Meanwhile the dress shot back, "Oh yeah?  Why don’t YOU try stuffing 140 pounds of cellulite-ridden celebrity diva into YOUR body!"

  • LA band Modey Lemon is on the up and up with Bucket of Butterflies. Check out their site and their drunkenly artistic tour pictures.
  • combo plates has a horn-y Morphine song called Cartoon Capers.
