Gossip Overload

Heather Locklear hospitalized

Things are heating up so hold on to your hats. 1stly Heather Locklear is back in hospital. She’s had an off and on battle with booze and pills for over 15 years. She kept it a well hidden secret by drinking on the sly and checking into hotels with a sobriety coach to dry out. It came to light back when her ex Richie Sambora started seeing Charlie Sheen ex Denise Richards. The strain may have been too much for Locklear and she went off the wagon. That’s when her years of secret drinking got out.

The on and off battle is on again with a vengeance. TMZ is reporting that Heather has been admitted to hospital for a booze and pills overdose. Heather’s sister found her and phoned authorities on 2:05 PM. That’s when the Verntura County Sheriff’s Dept got involved. Paramedics who arrived on the scene decided Heather needed to be hospitalized. This comes on the heels of her bust up with former Melrose Place co star Jack Wagner.

Lindsay Lohan – Lien on me

Locklear isn’t the only celeb having a hard time of it lately. Lindsay Lohan specializes in hard times and things are now getting seriously hairy for her. She’s had her brushes with the law from time to time, and usually she comes out ahead. This time the big guns are pointed straight her way. The big guns in question belong to the IRS, and these dudes don’t mess around.

Now everyone who’s been following Lindz knows that she’s run into some serious fiscal trouble lately. That’s because she’s been out of work for awhile. Paying of a pack of lawyers to keep her ass out of jail didn’t help the situation. Some stories have had her bumming money out of friends at the super market check out so that she could afford her Ben & Jerry’s. Her current situation is more serious. Seems that she owes Uncle Sam about $93 000 that she neglected to pay. SO the IRS is putting a lien on her.

Lindz, through her spokes persons, says that shew as unaware of the problem. That’s believable, since for one thing she’s had a lot of plates spinning. Sources also say that the tax bill got lost in the shuffle – Lindz recently replaced most of her financial management. The problem should be easy to fix. Lindz recently got a million dollar pay day for doffing her duds in Playboy. Besides, if things really get rough there’s always Dancing With the Stars!

Sinead O Connor in crisis

A mess with the IRS is bad but it could be worse. It seems to be for radical Irish songstress Sinead O Conner. If you’re beyond a certain age you’ll remember that she’s the one who tore up a picture of the Pope on SNL to protest Andrew Dice Clay’s participation in the show! Clay’s Jewish so it didn’t really make sense – but it was a long time ago.

Lately Sinead’s been erratic. Things started out innocently enough. She had a gig to cut some tracks for some new album. She got herself a Twitter account about the same time. At first the tweets were straight forward – the “hi how are ya” kind. There was even a good dose of self effacing humour – “I’m a gal you can take anywhere twice, the second time to apologize“. Then things started spiraling out of control.

Sinead got married to some guy. It only lasted 16 days. Then she started tweeting about how she needed a man real bad, especially if he was Robert Downey jr! She tweeted that she was developing some strange preoccupations with fresh supermarket produce, what without a good man being handy. Finally she took to the Tweet to ask her followers if they knew any good shrinks in the Dublin/Wicklow area. She explained that she was crying out to the world because Ireland is a poor place to look for help. Well it’s now been revealed that Sinead has attempted suicide a couple of times recently – once by overdose after a performance in LA last Thursday, in which Glenn Close was in attendance! Hopefully things will improve for O Connor.


Bono’s halfway there!

cause de jeer

Robin Hood bringing an appreciation for Louis Vuitton to the downtrodden

Even celebrities can become self aware, eventually. After 2 & 1/2 decades of preachy hypocritical Al Gore style social consciousness, U2 front man Bono is reaching the final frontier. Next to mediocre rock music Bono is best known for his political stands on various causes – the ‘save the rainforest’ and ‘ban the bra’ sort of stuff, and for dodging the taxes that help pay for them. He recently appeared at the Toronto International Film Festival to support the career, and perhaps incidentally the causes, in the form of a new U2 documentary called “From the Sky Down.” I’d have called it “All the Hot Air Heaven Can Hold” but no one asked me.

Anyway while giving the usual promotional interviews Bono revealed that there is more on his mind than weighty issues of world peace and environmentalism. Like the fact that the band may be getting irrelevant. Some might say the band became irrelevant a decade ago, but give Big B credit for waking up sometime. Bono muses that the band is in the same place now as when they released Achtung Baby back in 91. He also has mentioned that the have to push themselves creatively these days. Nothing like a ponderous self important documentary to do that.

Now if the band had decided to become more self aware rather than trying to stay relevant – a pit fall with celebs, then they might have put out a self parody type mockumentary. There’d be plenty of fuel for that, like Bono’s semi informed and perhaps self serving commitment to what ever cause de juer, his wheezy over done vocal stylings, the band’s alleged tax dodging, and why they didn’t pull the plug ten years ago when anyone still gave a damn. That would be expecting a bit much. Suffice it to stay that for some one struggling to stay relevant Bono has made a startling admission – he hasn’t seen his own film. Bono confesses that he hasn’t gone to the screening because he can’t stand to listen to himself. I think that boy might be starting to grow up!

Now here’s a promo for that film Bono can’t stand to watch.

One thing that is becoming increasingly relevant is the comet Elenin. That’s the mysterious and reputedly super dense astro body headed towards the Earth and being touted in the alternative media as a death star. Supposedly Miss Ellie’s recent alignments trigger the Japanese earth quake. Now for Miss Ellie followers there’s just been a quake out in Vancouver. That baby was 6.7 and shook Van City Hall. It was felt as far away as Seattle. So naturally every one is asking, below their breath “was it Elenin?” For more on that, and whether Elenin is the dreaded “purifier” Blue Star Kachina of Hopi Prophecy, head over to Area 51!


Money Never Sleeps & Marriage Comes Back To Haunt You

Happy ever after in the market place

Money and marriage seem to go together like love & marriage in the movies. Why not since we are living in the real world, or at least the material one. So naturally when folks get hitched up money issues get highlighted. That’s why the legal profession thought up the pre nup as a form of marriage insurance. Now a famous Hollywood ex wife is helping the law talking guys dream up some new precedents that could impact the way movies get made, for better or for worse.

Deandre Douglas is the ex wife of Michael Douglas. She was his wife back when he had a booming movie career instead of cancer. They split up some where along the way and the usual financial arrangements got made. Deandre went away quietly and Michael went off with a woman who’s seldom quiet. That’s Happily Ever After on the Boulevard of Broken Dreams.

Fast forward several years. Michael is still hitched up to Catherine Zeta Jones. He’s also make a motion picture come back with Wall Street 2 – Money Never Sleeps. The sequel is an idea you can bank on in Tinsel Town cause it’s like betting on success. The people who enjoyed you’re previous work will probably come out to see you “to be continued” stuff. That is unless you got drunk, went nuts, and turned racist or something. Then forget about it. Your celebrity career will consist of nothing but beating up your Russian girlfriend and getting your mug shot taken. But enough about Andy Dick.

Wall Street 2 did pretty good because Michael Douglas is a very talented actor director producer screen writer etc. That’s just the stuff he takes credit for and not including writing the musical score and working out some snappy choreography that unfortunately never made it in. Plus he’s a nice guy by Hollywood standards, which translates into not usually a jerk in man in the street terms. So the flick made some money.

That’s where Deandre comes in, and out of the wood work. She’s suing mike for a piece of the action. “Didn’t she get paid off already?” many of you might be asking. Sure she did. Mike might be a strong willed sex addicted ego maniac but he’s not a stinge. Then why is she coming back dogging an ill man? Well as usual there’s a catch.

the better half better have!

According to divorce law when a couple splits the better half is entitled to everything the more valuable half earned during their years together. Mike & Didi split up years ago and back when Catherine Zeta was a mere 40 year old slip of a thing. However Wall Street 2 is the sequel to a movie made when Mike was with Didi. So she’s arguing that this is a continuation of the first film. So it’s covered by community property. So she should get half of Michael’s take from the flick.

It’s an interesting legal argument that might have some basis. The idea is that this is a totally separate project. The reality is that this plays on some past work. A good portion of the film’s success comes from people having enjoyed the previous film. Deandre is entitled to her share from the original, so she has an argument for a piece of this. Whether her lawyers can get a judge to agree with that is a matter for the courts.

This is where the story gets interesting. Hollywood has been running out of good ideas ever since American writers stopped doing good novels and Andrew Lloyd Weber killed Broadway. With the usual sources of good ideas gone that makes sequels an important source of new screenplay material. So tons of these things get made. Most of them aren’t as watchable as anything Michael Douglas might do.

Now it’s no secret that almost everyone in Hollywood is as into serial marriage as they are into making sequels. It’s also common knowledge that divorces cost the big players a bundle. Steven Spielberg got taken for half his net worth when Amy Irving cut him loose. That was about 100 million at the time. Pre nups were supposed to provide the big boys with some kind of coverage. However if this goes through and sets precedent then no one’s safe anymore. That means every time some one pumps out some sequel from some thing done tens years or so ago, then the ex and her jackals could come out of the wood work to open old wounds. Since no one wants that this means the death of the sequel!

Since sequels are totally over done and an excuse to get good money out of bad films, it might be worth rooting for Deandre. She could be the woman who kills the sequel. Id f she can pull that off then she’ll have changed the way that movies get made. No more resting on past laurels. That can only be good for the industry. Just think of a film industry with no more sequels. So they can get on to making other kinds of flicks. Like stuff based on comic books, video games, and classic TV series. So you go girl!


Ring out those solstice bells – Hollywood style!

Happy Equinox Mother Earth! – PETA now officially as irrelevant as The Celebrity Roast!

There has been another occurrence of PETA. The controversial organization, which seems more interested in PR stunts and fund raising than offering genuine assistance to animals or the environment, showed that it was still relevant despite Lady Gaga’s meaty pro gay statements. BTW Lady Gaga also recently wore a meat dress, though some of the more timid members of Gaga’s entourage are now insisting that the dress was tofu – of the mock chicken variety. Gaga has stuck to her guns on this, insisting that she hasn’t tasted like chicken, mock or otherwise, in years.

it’s a jungle out here!

Anyway the usual array of Hollywood activists and agitators were out en masse and in force to rally round the cause by showing their commitment to making the world a better place. Pamela Anderson was there, of course. Anderson looks in dire need of artificial preservatives, or something to off set he effects of 20 years of drinking, drugging, partying, taking rides from strangers, and general Jerri Blanking around. She also spouted a bunch of platitudes which were a mish mash of other platitudes she has aired in public from time to time “Cruelty is bad, unless it’s show business related“, “Eating animals is bad, stick to eating people cause people are animals too“, and “Kid Rock had a really small dick!” While she may not have been sincere, or even coherent, she did sound as enthusiastic as a cheerleader midway through a pep rally – which is as much as you can expect from any pro celeb. Why do I get the impression that if some scientist found out how to turn baby seal blubber into facial filler no seal pup would be safe from her?

cruel to be kind? Take that, Dexter!

Dave Navarro was there and gave his 2 cents worth. “People who wear fur should be skinned and eaten!” That’s the trouble with the Hollywood folk, they’ll grab at any excuse for cannibalism, and shitty shitty scat play! Giving Dave the benefit of the doubt, perhaps he assumes that cannibalism would be some kind of fur deterrent, like the death penalty is for murder, which he’s no doubt against, the death penalty I mean. He already sounds pretty pro murder, as long as it’s in a worthwhile, ecologically conscious, and politically correct cause. Just like Alec Balwin when he appeared on Latenight and asked the American Public to rise up and slaughter the pro impeachment factions of the House & Senate back in the Bull Clinton era. Then again maybe Dave just got confused about the concept of a dude ranch! Navarro’s strictly a free range celebrity!

more or less

Speaking of sound and fury Baldwin was there to voice his support for the cause. Baldwin doesn’t look like he missed too many meals, and I’m sure he hasn’t been bulking up on tofu. Incidentally Alec was the one recorded calling his daughter Ireland an ignorant little pig during a now infamous telephone message. So basically his PETA support puts that in perspective. He wasn’t insulting his daughter, but expressing his love buy comparing her to one of Mother Nature’s blessed little creatures. In fact during that call it sounded like he loved her so much that she was becoming an endangered species. Anyway Alec got off the hook for that when it became clear that his wife Kim Bassigner, leaked the tape to get at him – there by proving that she loved her daughter even more, or less, than he does!

celebs have a beef with fur


where’s the beef?

I love how most of these characters look too doped up and jaded to even muster the wide eyed sincerity of some one to whom the idea had just occurred. “Well animals you know, that’s bad. We’ve gotta do something about that, the situation I mean, not the animals. It’s gotta be stopped.” In other words this was an opportunity to be seen and heard while gaining cred in connection with a worthwhile cause. “Celebrities like to look like they care about stuff,” as Sting said on an episode of the Simpsons (on an interesting aside and Internet acquaintance of mine told me about how Sting had lectured at their high school on the rain forest. Sting seemed sincere to the point that my friend was genuinely moved. About a week later friend goes to a Police concert. Friend gets back stage, meets Sting again and asks “Hows the rain forest doing?” Sting replies “How the fuck should I know?“). They delivered the message with the thoughtfulness and clarity of a Sarah Palin, too (no wonder Palin is the first ‘celebrity politician’ and hated by celebrities harboring political ambitions. We hate most in others what in them is most like ourselves. So a politician harboring celebrity aspirations is just too much to take!). Fortunately no mischievous types were there, to ask them whether or not they were concerned that their pro PETA stance might be interpreted as anti gay in light of Lady Gaga’s recent commentary. Then again there wasn’t much chance of that, since no one really relevant goes to PETA anymore, not even PINK!

“Save the Image” & Hollywood Humane Society, otherwise known as the retirement fund for aging pop cultural icons

Now I’m not criticizing celebs for being phony, superficial, narcissistic, and insincere in there political support – no wait that’s exactly what I’m doing. That kind of involvement cheapens even a worthwhile cause, to say nothing of bull shit organizations like PETA (PETA reputedly euthanizes a greater percentage of animals turned over to it’s care than the curiously named Humane Society. It’s something like 98%. In fact PETA workers have stood trial incidents involving the disposal of bags of euthanized dogs & cats in garbage dumpsters. PETA’s response was something to the effect of “We’re not about saving individual dogs and cats but about raising awareness of the issue“. Then they went on to announce the release of George Clooney flavoured tofu. They didn’t actually release the tofu. It seemed more like an excuse for a news conference. Perhaps there just wasn’t enough demand for Clooney flavoured food.). So it raises the question “Couldn’t their energy be better directed towards worthy goals?“, like keeping gays off of the streets by getting them into the military.


Celebrity Politics

more or less true: convenient truths

Let’s say you’re at Starbucks, ducking cups of acid tossed at you by less attractive folk, and desperately trying to make points with the other beautiful people. You need something to say about the issues dear to their heart, but you want something that sounds halfway original. That means you have to come up with more than the usual pep rally sentiments expressed at most televised award shows (You know _ “America’s most beautiful people cry for rain forest” or “Brad Pitt wants oil exes executed” – the kind of thoughtless celebrity drivel every one is sick of.). You might even want something a little outrageous, but well expressed enough to get respect. What do you do?

first – fall from nature; eventually – the environment!

Well first the environment is a pretty safe topic, as long as you’ve got the right ideas on the matter. That means something along the lines of “nature is good” and even “man is probably bad” – I love the way environmentalists have reinvented original sin along with it’s concomitant guilt trips. It might also means that you’ll have to come up with some fresh material, or at least some stuff that hasn’t been heard in a little while. That’s where good ole Aldous Huxley comes in handy.

a heart on your sleeve is back in fashion (just as long as it’s not yours) with brave old talk

Huxley was the English writer who penned Brave New World. That’s the novel where drugs were used to keep people happy and prevent them from becoming discontent enough to make trouble. So Huxley saw science as a clear threat to “progress” – progress meaning ‘business as usual’; fighting and bickering for pure drama (issues are a smoke screen, they merely let people knowing whom they’re against by being able to recognize who disagrees with them!). Huxley himself was pretty fond of drugs. In fact he died on acid! That shouldn’t detract from his ideas, nor those ideas usefulness in ingratiating yourself with the in crowd. So here now is a lecture by Huxley, from 1962, on The Politics of Environmentalism! Hope this comes in handy:

a trick up your sleeve: how nice it is to know things

There now, wasn’t that a treat? The best part is that it gives you the chance to kill 2 birds with one stone: you discuss important issues, and come off looking smart on the right issues! That’s not even including the side benefit of the delicious Starbucks coffee! You’ll seem like hot shit on a silver platter as you natter on about politics and birth control to your spell bound audience of local celebrities, while clattering away on your Mac and drinking java! Oh, the humanity!

If you really want to come off smart then just remind your interlocutors that Huxley wasn’t the guy who wrote 1984 – that was George Orwell. You might also want to carry a small container of cream to your Starbucks visits. Cream is a base, so will help neutralize any acid tossed at you by jealous bystanders! If you’re coming off as both smart & sexy the acid is gonna be flying at you from every direction – believe me, I know! There’s no end of good to science!

psychedelic adventures

Now if you really want something to blow your minds then watch this. It’s about a voyage of discovery, and almost politics free!

Boycott the circus!

… but send in the clowns

Boycott the circus!Entertainment is full of aspiring actresses trying to find the side door to success by way of dubious career choices. This route is usually an express lane to no where, but occasionally it takes you onto the fast lane, as in the case of Olivia Munn. Olivia is best known for an internet podcast called Attack of the Show. It’s funny. clever and less popular than The Young Turks. The main job perk was getting swag when stuff got reviewed.

wrong turn onto the fast lane

Then, one day and quite by accident Olivia pinged on the radar. AOTS did a Wonder Woman sketch featuring Olivia. The combination of a fresh faced cute chick in cosplay gear fired young men’s imaginations and Olivia had ingredient one for a breakthrough – buzz. Soon she was to find herself in Maxim’s Top 100 – at 98 or 99. Pretty good for a nobody. That must’ve been the time that the movie offers started in because Olivia is currently wrapping one movie and set to play the Wasp in an upcoming Batman! Nice work if you can get it.

ego trips and other occupational hazards

Well plumb rolls are only part of the whole celebrity trip. There’s also the hype. Olivia should be an expert on this, having worked in the media, but she’s not. In fact she recently let ambition get the better of good sense – an occupational hazard with celebrities, when she attended a PETA function.

cause celeb

PETA is one of those cause celebs. Actors and actresses used to get involved to add some credibility to their image, back when PETA had some credibility. Then PETA tried to gain a higher profile by attacking a group that knows more about hype than they do – the fashion industry. They began dumping sacks of flour over any famous person they caught in animal skins, like Lindsay Lohan.

fashion fights back

PETA would’ve fared better if they’d concentrated on the east coast seal hunt or something because the fashion industry began using their media contacts to fight back. Reports came out about PETA’s ‘insincerity’: they euthanize over 98% of animals in their care – and explained that one by saying that they’re not about animals but about raising consciousness and issues. Some of their workers also got caught stuffing bags of dead cats into dumpsters. PETA responded with their George Clooney flavored tofu media blitz!

you can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs

Now that doesn’t stop PETA from acting like they still have credibility, nor does it stop junior glitterati (D Listers) from glomming on to them. Eager young d listers might have learned from Pamela Anderson who attached herself to PETA for years. When the chips were down though she had to give them a rest and go back to dropping her drawers and flashing her boobs in public to make a living. Pam is also celebrating her new fragrance which may or may not be animal tested.

failure is not an option, only an inevitablity

Just because something doesn’t work is no reason not to give it a chance – unless you’re interested in results or anything. Perhaps that’s why Ms. Munn recently doffed her duds for PETA (in their ironically entitled “Boycott the circus” campaign) in an attempt to scale the heady heights of the entertainment industry. She even appeared nude (rather than naked: one shows everything while the other reveals nothing) in one of their adds.

old enough to know better, but young enough o keep trying

Fine and well. You can forgive a young actress for not knowing better – about PETA I mean, dropping your drawers in a good cause is okay. Well Olivia added one mistake to another by continuing to let ambition get the better of poor judgment. She showed up at their event to hype her poster wearing of all things leather boots! Here are some pix by way of celeblog Oh No They Didn’t:

olivia munn peta leather boots
boycott the circus

the wheel is crooked and it’s the only show in town

Those little things are bound to be picked up on and especially when there are a thousand or so cameras pointed at you. When asked whether the shoes were leather Olivia responded “No they’re not”. PETA tried – unsuccessfully – for a little more finesse. They pointed out in their official release on the incident that it wasn’t an anti leather campaign! Quit right. It was an anti circus campaign, and PETA is part of the biggest circus in town, the entertainment industry. I wonder when people will get around to boycotting that?

Entertainment ain’t the only fucked up business. Just hit the link for the Goldman Sacks hearings. If that’s too much then divert yourself with the following celebrity rogues’ gallery:

Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy split up

Jim Carrey & Jenny McCarthy have been a pretty solid couple over the past 5 years. That’s why it came as a shock to many when the couple announced their split via social network texting site Twitter. The pair announced that they were no longer an item and that the bust up was amicable. No word on whether or not Jim’s new Joaquin Phoenix look was what finally proved too much for Jenny.

Perezhilton’s better nature gets animal tested

In other news Perezhilton has found a cause that he can believe in. Seems the Internet’s foremost gossipista has gotten PETA’d up. Perez is doing a number of adds for the controversial organization where he urges people not to wear fur and ignore personal hygiene (deodorant is tested on animals just to make sure the formaldehyde levels are within FDA acceptable limits!). Here’s Perez preaching to the converted:

Perez seems so much more sympathetic to animals than to human celebrities. I guess that his usual vitrol isn’t within FDA safe standards. Then again Perez must be excused for jumping on the fluffy seal bandwagon. He’s so much more than a gossip writer – he’s shooting for pop cultural icon status!

SAVE THE SEALS - Perez Hilton's 'Save the Seals' Ad
There are some new breaks in the Casey Anthony case. Casey is the woman accused of killing her young daughter Caylee. Now Casey has always maintained that she loved her daughter dearly and was in no way responsible for the little girl’s disappearance and death. At least that’s what she told the public. Behind bars she’s been running her mouth to the other convicts. In fact she’s even put some incriminating things in writing. In a series of 50 letters to other prisoners Casey admitted to ‘knocking Caylee out’ with antihistamines and chloroform so that she could go party. Chloroform was used to render the girl unconscious before she was killed.

So I guess the moral of the story is that if you’re gonna commit an atrocity don’t put it in writing. That was Adolph Hitler’s mistake with Mein Kampf. Of course no one paid attention when Hitler did, so perhaps Casey thought her chances of getting away with murder were pretty good. Cynical people have been taught that it’s savvy not to believe anything you read – unless it’s been posted to the Internet!

Go incognito the Hollywood way

Finally there sis some action over @ Sandra Bullock’s house. A large green tarp wearing a hat and sun glasses was spotted coming and going while surrounded by personal assistants and body guards. You gotta hand it to Hollywood movie stars – when the want to go incognito they really do it with their own special flair! What’s the point of going unnoticed if no one sees it?

By the way if you haven’t checked out Clipjunkie yet then head right over and do so – you won’t be sorry.


I have seen the future and it’s a rerun!

Conan O Brien’s gone and nearly forgotten, Jay Leno’s back with Lindsay Vonn to help him warm things up, so the only real question is how NBC will fill that hour of network prime time every week night at 10 PM. My guess is reality TV pilot after reality TV pilot after reality TV pilot. At least that would give them a real shot at winning their time slot – although with the new guy still in charge @ NBC I guess that they don’t do that anymore. If you’ve had an idea for a TV series floating around in the back of your mind now might be a good time to pitch it to NBC!

BTW Jay Leno isn’t the only bug big name who’s back. Harrison Ford is back again in a new film called Extraordinary Measures. Everyone knows who Harrison Ford is, but for those under the age of 18 Ford is the 80’s movie icon who didn’t fuck up on Oprah or get busted for DUI. This isn’t an action film even though the title sounds like one. What it is is as explained by Mr. Ford in the following short video promo:

The Oscars are back too but that’s not news since they come back around every time this year. What is news is that Woody Harrelson is back with them. He was the guy who played Tony Danza on Cheers. His new flick is getting some good buzz.

Speaking of the 80’s Corey Feldman is back and attracting a lot of attention. He was recently at La Vida – where he may or may not have been valet parking – it’s not clear from the video clip, & and getting a lot of young women mildly excited. Getting a lot of young women mildly excited is what he used to do best!

It’s good to see that he’s still got it. I was afraid that the Fonz might be losing his cool for awhile. Splitting with his wife and palling around with Cory Haim again really seems to agree with him. Haim has really put on quite a little bit of weight since trying to kick prescription pills I hear. Corey mentions having a lot of projects in the works like The Goonies 25 year reunion, so he may have been joking about having work.

Some one who’s going rather than coming is Simon Cowell. He’s leaving American Idol to start up an American version of X Factor with Paula Abdul. While Simon is leaving he has tapped Howard Stern (who’s name re arranged spells ‘wondertrash’!) to replace. So welcome back to Howard too. He hasn’t been a household name since he moved to Sirius satellite radio.

That pesky paparazzo might have been on to something with his Perezhilton idea! Meanwhile Simon is getting married – I hope this isn’t anything rash. I really hope it works out better for him than satellite radio did for Stern. Then again Stern should’ve known that talk radio listeners are gonna avoid anything called Sirius, on the basis that it might be a front for the Illuminati! If it doesn’t work out, Simon can always come back to TV! I’m sure that Howard would offer him his old spot back – just like Conan with Jay Leno!


Jude Law Backs Teen Effort to Fund Film

Celebrities usually get a hard time here at Wondertrash. Occasionally though a celebrity does something genuinely praiseworthy. Jude Law has taken time to support two young independent film makers. He’s using his influence to help them get their project funded. It makes a refreshing change from celebrities who glom onto an already established cause in order to boost their own image. Who knows – perhaps Jude is backing this because he really believes that it’s worth while.

Speaking of celebrities who glom onto causes, Johnny Depp is one of many celebrities supporting the West Memphis 3.


Taylor Swift has a birthday

Since getting interrupted by Kanye West at the VMA’s it’s only been onward & upward for Taylor Swift. Only an allegation that she’s slept with Tiger Woods can stop her now! On a serious note the donation was a really classy gesture.
