Heat Reunion

I love the movie Heat. Both DeNiro and Pacino look good for their age, great plot, great soundtrack, some of the best lines in a movie, etc.

Now they are filming another movie, unrelated to Heat, called Righteous Kill. Since DeNiro will be in any movie, hard to say if this will be any good. And did he gain the weight for the film? Or is he at the Brando/Nicholson/I don't give a sh*t stage?

Maria Shriver Not Returning to TV Because of Anna Nicole

Maria Shriver says she won't resume her TV news career, citing media coverage of the late Anna Nicole Smith.

Shriver, speaking Tuesday at a women's conference, noted the media circus surrounding Smith's accidental drug overdose death in February.

"It was then that I knew that the TV news business had changed and so had I," she said. "I called NBC News and told them I'm not coming back."

Hollywood- It's Not a Competition to Name Your Baby Something Weird

Gretchen Mol and her husband, director Tod Williams, are parents of a son.

Ptolemy John Williams was born Sept. 10, the actress's rep says.

How do you even pronounce that?

Viva Laughlin Canceled

After two episodes, the musical tv show is canceled. I accidentally saw a second of it (that moment before you get the tv changed for the next show) and it was dreadful. Musical? Melanie Griffith? Who thought this would ever work?

Moving to what was intended as its regular time slot, 8 p.m. EST Sunday, "Viva Laughlin" dropped to an estimated 6.8 million viewers. The show starring Lloyd Owen as a small-time gambler caught up in a murder investigation drew mostly drew largely poor reviews.

It will be replaced next Sunday by a "CSI" rerun, with reality series "The Amazing Race" then taking over the time period, CBS (part of CBS Corp.) said Monday.

Amazing Race will be back! Yeah.

Marie Osmond Collapses

I don't watch Dancing With the Stars, but apparently Marie collapses during the samba.

Osmond and her partner, dancer Jonathan Roberts, the first performers of the evening, had just finished a samba and were listening to comments from the show’s judges when she suddenly toppled.

“She was laughing and then sank like a stone. ... Everyone froze,” said ABC publicist Amy Wolfe. As the show cut to a commercial, Osmond started to rise and was helped by others, Wolfe said.

TV and Film Writers Vote to Strike

Does this mean we're going to have to read instead of watch tv?

More than 5,000 members of the Writers Guild of America cast ballots, with 90 percent voting in favor of authorizing the strike, the union said Friday evening. Members voted Thursday.

Since July, the guild has been in talks with film studios and production companies represented by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. Both sides acknowledge they have not made progress.

A key issue dividing producers and writers, as well as actors, whose contract expires next June, is compensation for DVD sales and productions that get distributed on the Internet or in other new media formats.

The writers' current three-year contract expires Oct. 31, and their vote gives the union's leaders authorization to call a strike anytime after that day.

Studios and TV networks have accelerated filming of shows and movies and begun stockpiling scripts in case of a strike.

The last strike in 1988 lasted 22 weeks. Losses to the industry were put at $500 million.

"Kid Rock Arrested in Waffle House Fight"

I would expect nothing less from Kid Rock. Fighting at a waffle house.
Police say Kid Rock stopped by a restaurant early Sunday after their show, and a male customer recognized a female in Rock's entourage. Words were exchanged, and a fight ensued, the station reports.

After police were called, the singer's tour bus was pulled over, and he and the members of his entourage were arrested. In addition to Rock's arrest, the male customer also has been charged with a felony for allegedly smashing a window of the restaurant.

According to FOX, Kid Rock posted bail and was released Sunday evening from DeKalb County jail, signing autographs on his way out.

Are We Ready For a Female President Because Ellen Cried?

Last night Bill Maher made some ridiculous comment about Ellen Degeneres crying, so maybe we're not ready for a female president.

Men do stupid stuff all the time, yet we still have male presidents.

While I don't care that she cried on air and I think she was just being honest with her (loyal) viewers, apparently some people don't understand that some women cry over stuff that other people (men or other women) wouldn't cry over.

I once cried over spilling a mocha. And not because they're so ridiculously over priced. Sometimes we just cry. Have our chick flicks taught people nothing?

Unrelated to the Ellen comment, some people protested during Bill Maher last night. I couldn't hear what they were saying, but Bill handled it well and seemed unphased.

David Copperfield- So...He's Not Gay?

The rumor that David Copperfield is gay or paid off Claudia Schiffer to be his girlfriend have been around for years. Now he is being accused of sexual assault. By a woman.

So confusing. It's like when Nicole said she miscarried Tom's baby. Confusing!

The story here.

Hunter Tylo's Son Dies

I think Hunter Tylo is the one the sued Aaron Spelling for firing her from Melrose Place allegedly because she was pregnant.

Her son drowned in a pool in Nevada. He was 19. More here.

Ellen Takes Time Off

Ok, the Ellen and the dog situation is getting out of control. She is taking a few days off, and allegedly there are threats against the dog agency. Read here if you care.

A good thing that could come from this is attention on puppy mills and pet store animals.

RIP Joey Bishop

The last member of the Rat Pack has died, he was 89. I think I was just talking to someone about Joey Bishop and we were wondering if he was alive or not. I know, you young people are scratching your head: "What is the Rat Pack?"

I Thought This Was An Age-Progression Photo!

I thought this was one of photos to show what you will look like when you get older. But this is a photo showing Carmen's new haircut.

Maybe that alleged affair with Joan Jett is true and Carmen is going for less glam hair to jive with her lesbo side? How else to explain such a non flattering 'do?

Just When I Didn't Need Another Show to Watch...

There's a Salt-n-Pepa reality show.

This could be good, or this could get old real quick. But I think it's funny her nickname was "Salt". I think that's why she comes off bitter. She's not even white like salt! (see, then it would've been like Ebony and Ivory).

What we learn within minutes of the show starting- Salt was bulimic, now Salt is religious and doesn't want to sing "Push it" and all the other suggestive lyrics. Pepa is the same as she was before.

Pepa tries to downplay the naughty lyrics to Salt, and says the reason people thought "Push it real good" was sexual was because people thought Salt-n-Pepa were singing "P*ssy real good". Uh, who thought that? Who doesn't know it's Push It?

Where's Spinderella?

Van Halen Set List

Van Halen set list here. They play Ice Cream Man, Jamie's Cryin' and, I am choking back happy tears, Ain't Talkin' Bout Love.

Oh dear. Is David Lee Roth going to throw out his hips before they get to Seattle?

This N That

Led Zeppelin goes digital. Maybe they'll give credit to all the artists they allegedly ripped off. Listen here.

The Beatles are the last big group that haven't gone digital. You know as soon as the ink is dry on that divorce they'll go digital. Watch for it.

Ellen adopted a dog and then gave it away to her hairdresser. The dog adoption agency says you can't do that and took the dog back. My question is: Ellen has a hairdresser?

Jon Stewart for Prez

Anyone who saw the Tony Snow interview knows what I'm talking about. Intelligent guy that JS. Stephen Colbert was on Larry King last week and it was pretty funny. Larry kept trying to wrap his head around the two Stephens.

I Saw It Go in the Corner

Did you see on The Office when they were watching the "DVD Video" image bouncing around the screen, waiting for it to go into the corner of the screen? Well I just saw it happen. For reals! It went in the corner.

Not Getting Good Reviews

I'll still go see Elizabeth: The Golden Age. Cate. Clive. Enough said.

Julia Gets Some Award

I'm glad celebrities keep giving themselves awards. Julia gets an American Cinematheque award. What-ev.

Look how big her fake lips are on the screen. She has a naturally wide month, but I think the plumpness is fake. And you're not going to convince me otherwise. Someone has tried, and I had to cite my sources (Oceans 11 in the dining room scene with George Clooney...see, don't get me started!).

Bon Jovi on SNL

Poor Richie forgot his lines on SNL. Why didn't they give him cue cards? The guy's been through a lot. He went to rehab and was dating Denise Richards.

Of course, Jon had to remind Richie of his lines, and Jon did some self congratulatory kisses to the crowd. They then sang one of their new songs. And the keyboard player looks like he is going through a sex change. Seriously. That shirt, that hair. It looks like a tranny I saw at Nordstrom.

You're Welcome

Don't hate me for talking about Christmas before Halloween, but you have to know about the Rick Springfield Christmas album. You don't have to thank me.

I am adding this to my holiday collection which includes James Brown's Funky Christmas, U2 and The Jefferson's theme song (karaoke version!).

Go here to order yours! You know you want it!!!
