You Go JR!

Julia Roberts let the paparrazzi have it. I hope she was far away from the school when she drove crazy to get them to pull over, since the reason she pulled them over was to tell them it wasn't cool to be at a school.

Good for you Julia!

He just released a statement within the last week or so saying that his lawsuit with Kanye was amicably settled and that Kanye was a nice guy. Wonder if he knew the end was near? He was 69.

Conan Paying His Staff During the Strike

All the rich hosts should be helping their staff out.

As the Writers Guild of America strike drags on, Conan O’Brien is bringing some holiday cheer to his late-night talk show staff, pledging to cover the salaries of his non-writing production workers—nearly 80 people in all.

NBC, which airs the comedian’s talk show Late Night with Conan O’Brien, agreed to cover the salaries through the end of November, and O’Brien, 44, will personally pick up the tab for the foreseeable future, according to Variety.

O’Brien is said to be grateful for the loyalty many of those staffers have shown over the years. Many of them are expected to accompany him to the West Coast when he takes over as host of The Tonight Show in 2009.

Puttering is Good!

Well, according to some scientists. They say even just standing, vs. sitting, could help control weight. Something to do with when you sit all your enzymes shut down, or whatever. I didn't actually read the whole thing, but you can here.

I think one of my cats putters. He just walks back and forth all day. If he had a wheelbarrow to push one rock around in the backyard he'd be just like Pops!

Wonder who this sap is that had to pose for this photo (and it's NOT Pops!):

Roberto Benigni Wins Dancing With the Stars!

Ok not really, its some race car driver named Helio, but he reminds me of Roberto. Although, he didn't say "I want to make love to everybody" and climb on chairs hovering over Spieberg.

What is Wrong With Marie Osmond?

Doll designer Marie Osmond dressed up as a doll for her freelance dance on Dancing With the Stars. She then didn't really dance, but acted like a raggedy doll around the stage. It was odd.

Hawthorn Heights Guitarist Dies at 25

Hawthorne Heights guitarist Casey Calvert passed away Friday on the band's tour bus in Washington, D.C. He was 25.

The cause of death has yet to be announced, although early reports suggest it may be related to acute asthma.

"At this time we're not sure what exactly happened. Just last night he was joking around with everyone before he went to bed," the band wrote in a Nov. 24 post on its Web site.

"We can say with absolute certainty that he was not doing anything illegal. Please, out of respect to Casey and his family, don't contribute or succumb to any gossip you may hear," the statement continues. "We don't want his memory to be tainted in the least. Casey was our best friend. He was quirky and awesome and there will truly be no others like him! His loss is unexplainable."

Discover Eva Cassidy

Eva Cassidy died in 1996 at the age of 33 before her music became known outside of her circle of friends, and clubs that she sang at in Washington, D.C.

I thought I would get that out in the open first. I'm sure her family doesn't want her to be known as the singer who died before she became famous, but that is her story. The Brits were the first to put her music on the radio and to demand her CDs, and now she is on iTunes.

Her version of Fields of Gold is better than Sting's, in my opinion.

Forget Britney and give someone the gift of Eva's voice this Christmas.

Paparazzi Trailing the Quaids

Why can't photographers leave Dennis Quaid and his wife alone while they go to the hospital to visit their sick babies?

From TMZ:

More than ten paps (not TMZ) have been on the Quaids, shouting out question after question. We're told Dennis asked them just to leave them alone so they could get to the hospital. When that didn't happen, the Sheriffs escorted the Quaids to Cedars, just after noon today.

A Good Thing to Come Out of the Writer's Strike?

SJP Had Eye Work???

Sarah Jessica Parker surprised the designers on Project Runway and girlfriend looks like she's had her eyes done, and/or the nose. It could be how she is wearing her eye makeup, which if that is the case, is not flattering.

The chubby gay guy (does that make him a bear?) started crying when he saw Sarah. No, not because of her eyes. He said he moved to NY because of watching Sex and the City.

Kathy Griffin told a story about meeting Donny and Marie and said Donny was fearful of Marie and was near shaking (obvious exaggeration) and that Marie winked to no one in particular, just winked. Love it.

Bill Nye the Science Guy News

I know you've been thinking- When will we ever get some Bill Nye the Science Guy news? or were you thinking Who is Bill Nye the Science Guy? Either way, here's the dish from TMZ:

Bill Nye "The Science Guy" is asking a Los Angeles County judge for protection from his wife, after she pulled a late night raid on his flower and produce gardens.

TMZ obtained a request for a temporary restraining order, filed by Nye against his wife of just one year, Blair Tindal. In the handwritten documents, Bill claims his estranged wife showed up at his Studio City home on Labor Day, dressed in black and armed with two large bottles "filled with some sort of solvent" to do damage to his garden, which he says provides "food produce."

Nye also alleges that the herbicide was "quite toxic" and thought Tindall might have squirted him in the eyes with it had she gotten closer.

Tindall responded to the order by describing the midnight bad vegetables incident as a "foolish, sophomoric act of poor judgment" brought on by a series of personal and family problems. She also strongly denied being a threat to Nye, and accuses him of "emotional cruelty." The out of orbit couple wed last February in a curious ceremony officiated by Pastor Rick Warren, author of "The Purpose Driven Life."

Larry King is Comedy Gold

Larry King is unintentionally hilarious. Today's show is on plastic surgery and they ran a clip of a past show where Larry asked Pam Anderson if she's had any plastic surgery. She explained that she's had her breasts done, to which he said "you mean you had them enlarged?" Well no, Larry she's had them reduced. She was born with triple Zs.

She said "didn't you know that?" and he said he doesn't know about such things. Oh Larry!

In other Larry news, Donny Osmond has apologized for getting mad at him or saying something about him, or whatever. Read here if ya care

Saw Kathy Griffin perform last night. Hilarious as expected.

She said this, not me: "So, if none of the Desperate Housewives have had surgery, Teri Hatcher just woke up one day and was Korean?"

She also talked about Britney (not as much as you'd think though), Marie Osmond, Paula Abdul and her recent Emmy win. Apparently some writer for a Nickelodeon show wrote her infamous acceptance speech.
