Fat Cat Owner Found

Turns out, the economy is the reason a 44-pound cat found lumbering the streets of New Jersey became homeless.

The Camden County Animal Shelter said the cat's owner came forward to say she had to abandon the tubby tabby because her home was foreclosed.

Shelter director Jennifer Anderch said the older woman recently lost her home and could not keep the 10-year-old cat, whom she called "Powder."

I feel bad for the elderly owner who lost her house...but is abandoning the cat the best idea? Cheap cat food doesn't cost much, and cats don't eat much..oh, uh, most cats don't eat that much.

Maybe it's not a financial issue, but because of where she had to move to? Still, don't leave animals to wander people!

Here's the chunky one on Regis and Kelly.

What's The Purpose?

A new show, Call 911, plays actual 911 calls. Other shows have done similar, so this is nothing new. What I don't like about this new show is, for instance, the clip of Kanye West's mother gasping for air (in quick recession...very panicky) while the person who called 911 is telling her to "breathe". What if someone from her family saw that? I didn't know her and I'm haunted by it.

I just looked up Ms. West's autopsy results, and I'm going to guess what I heard on the tape was someone giving her mouth to mouth. Again- do we need to hear this?

I Was Always Sabrina

As kids, we would play Charlie's Angels. Because I was a brown-haired tomboy, I had to play Sabrina, the Kate Jackson character. (And when we played Grease I would have to be Danny Zucko. For reals.) It was a glorious day when Kate Jackson married the younger Andrew Stevens. Validation for us tomboys! (ok, they were married for about a year...but he seemed much cuter than Farrah's husband Lee Majors)

On Shear Genius, the show we watch because it's right after Project Runway, there was a Charlie's Angels challenge. Jaclyn Smith is the host, so it was fitting. Kate Jackson was a guest judge. Kate got a little catty telling a story about Farrah and Jaclyn holding up production by being bent over brushing their hair. Kate told the crew "let the money brush their hair". Maybe that's why I was like Kate. Sassy!

I Love This Show

Flipping Out, on Bravo, is hilarious reality tv. Jeff Lewis, a house flipper with OCD, just cracks me up. Plus, it's fun to look at his houses after the remodel.

Which brings me to a blog I recently discovered, Real Estalker, a blog about houses celebrities buy and sell.

Sirius/XM Merger

The laughably long merger between Sirius and XM went through.

The Federal Communications Commission approved in a 3-2 vote Friday all-stock buyout of XM, ending some 16 months of regulatory limbo for the nation's only satellite radio companies.

Company executives have long argued that the merger would lead to major cost savings and the first-ever profits in the fledgling industry.

Some critics of the deal had argued that a combined satellite group would form a monopoly that would benefit from sharing the same broadcast stars and could bring an end to bidding wars for top talent.

The deal was approved by XM and Sirius shareholders last December, when Sirius had more than 8.3 million subscribers compared with nine million for XM.

I Don't Blame Him!

While talking about Oliver Stone's new movie "W", Joy Behar pointed out that Richard Dreyfuss was playing Cheney even though he doesn't like republicans. She said when she saw "Fahrenheit 9/11" in the theater, Dreyfuss was also there and was crying. I'm with him! I had to turn that movie off, couldn't watch.

Makes me like Dreyfuss...despite him being the bad guy in "The American President" who is a big meany to Sydney Wade.

No Love For The X-Files

The X-Files movie is predicted to place 4th in the box office race this weekend, with $10 million. Not good. Most movies drop big their 2nd week. According to Box Office Mojo, The X-Files production budget was only $30 million. They might be able to recoup that with DVD. Although, the production budget for Step Brothers is listed as $65 million, so something's not right about those numbers. X-Files would have to have a big budget...

1. The Dark Knight $75.6 million
2. Step Brothers $30 million
3. Mamma Mia! $17.8 million
4. X-Files $10 million
5. Journey to the Center of the Earth $9.4 million
6. Hancock $8 million
7. Wall-E $6 million
8. Hellboy II $4.9 million
9. Space Chimps $4 million
10.Wanted $2.7 million

The X-Files: I Want to Believe it's Good

But it doesn't sound like the second X-File movie is getting the best reviews.

31% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is equivalent to a rotten jalapeno that makes you pee pee out your bum bum (I totally stole that from Mike Myers on the Daily Show).

At the Los Angeles premiere. Duchovny gots some bad hair.

The Tomato People Must Be Ticked

The salmonella was from jalapenos?

The Food and Drug Administration urged consumers to avoid raw Mexican jalapenos and the serrano peppers often confused with them, or dishes made with them such as fresh salsa.

Tomatoes had been the prime suspect for weeks. And while those now on the market are considered safe to eat, health officials still haven't exonerated them from causing illnesses when the outbreak began in April.

I'm thinking they don't want to get sued by the Tomato industry, so they'll never say for sure if tomatoes had salmonella.

Of course I know that people have twins without assistance. But, it's not really earth shaking news to find out someone with twins had in vitro.

Perez Hilton Outs Celebrity Couple's Transgendered Son

or daughter. Not sure how you say it. A girl that is now a boy.

I won't say who the child is (and as far as I know it's just gossip).

But could explain the sad look on the mom's face at a recent event. I thought she was ticked at the husband (and I commented on it in a post).

I'd say Perez was an a** for outing her/him, but am I just as bad for pointing it out?

A Judge Rules Against Crazy Names

A family court judge in New Zealand has had enough with parents giving their children bizarre names here, and did something about it.

Just ask Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii. He had her renamed.

Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii. That was her name. Oy.

Registration officials blocked some names, including Fish and Chips, Yeah Detroit, Keenan Got Lucy and Sex Fruit, he said. But others were allowed, including Number 16 Bus Shelter "and tragically, Violence," he said.

Number 16 Bus Shelter was allowed??? Now who is deciding this. That's as bad as Fish and Chips.


Robert Novak Doesn't Remember Hitting a Pedestrian

An eyewitness says the pedestrian was on the hood of Novak's car, and they don't know how he wouldn't have seen the pedestrian.

David Bono, the bicyclist who witnessed the incident, told The Associated Press that the pedestrian was hit in a crosswalk and was splayed across Novak's windshield.

Robert Novak is some blowhard that outed a CIA agent.

I Blame...Low Carb Diet?

Not sure what to make of the TMZ report that Christian Bale was screaming at a cinematographer on the set of The Terminator.
We're told Bale went ballistic, screaming "I will kick your ass" along with other choice remarks. Several hundred people heard the outburst -- including Military Police -- which was described as "intense."

We're told Bale was "extremely tired and having a bad day."

Is it bad that I laughed when I read "I will kick your ass"? I mean, c'mon. You have a gravy job. Get it the f*ck together.

Verbal Assault?

Apparently you can be arrested in England on verbal assault.

TMZ is reporting that there may have been a shove/push, but nothing more physical than that with Christian, his mother and sister. Maybe they were annoying and he yelled at them, they were embarassed and filed a claim?

Christian moved to the U.S. with his father, who was an environmental and animal activist. He has since passed away.

Imagine if you could get arrested on verbal assault in the U.S.! The guy I heard screaming at his girlfriend a week ago: "See you in prison, you whore", really would see her in prison, just for screaming see you in prison!

I Blame the Haircut

I knew looking like Maroon 5 guy was not a good thing!

British media reported that Bale's mother and sister complained he had assaulted them at the Dorchester Hotel in London on Sunday night, a day before the European premiere of "The Dark Knight."

Bale's London-based law firm, Schillings said Bale, issued a statement denying that an assault took place.

"Christian Bale attended a London police station today on a voluntary basis," the statement read. "Bale, who denies the allegation, cooperated throughout, gave his account in full of the events in question, and has left the station without any charge being made against him by the police."

Photo above is a day after the incident, at the London premiere. I'm guessing his hair and weight loss is for the Terminator movie.

There are few actors whose movies I usually always like, than Christian Bale.

I Didn't See Clooney

I saw-

Dylan McDermott at Starbucks. He kept the shades on inside, held the door open for someone when he left, and got it your typical single guy at his age car. It was not the Starbucks location I would expect to see a celeb, in fact I thought it was almost a little shady but saw a nice car in the parking lot (turned out to be his). Yes, I am now judging Starbucks by the cars in their parking lot.

Robin from General Hospital at the mani/pedi place. Wasn't sure it was her since I haven't watched GH in about 20 years, but read online she has a nose ring so I am confirming this sighting.

The real estate couple from Million Dollar Listing on Bravo. I had just seen their ad on a bench, that's the only way I'd recognize them.

And that's it!

Taking some time off to go to LA. Think Clooney is back from Italy yet?

This is wax figure of Clooney in Germany. It looks nothing like him. Even the guy on the left doesn't think it's him.

Ok, that's not my car. Some women accidentally rolled her car into her neighbors pool.

My neighbor doesn't have a pool, but did have a fire this morning at 3am, causing his sprinkler to dribble all the way down the building, causing wall and floor damage to the floors below.

So- I'm not posting much because I'm not at home! 7 high power heaters live there currently.

Tomatoes Getting a Bad Rap?

Tomatoes may not be solely to blame for the salmonella outbreak.

That study of the June cases shows the sick are far more likely than the well to have eaten either raw tomatoes, raw jalapeno peppers or fresh cilantro. In one of the largest clusters, those sickened had consumed fresh tomatoes and fresh jalapenos mixed together. In two other large clusters, illnesses were linked only to a dish that contained fresh jalapenos but no tomatoes.

Hopelessly Devoted

Sandy gets hitched.

Olivia Newton-John married natural-health businessman – and fellow Aussie – John Easterling in two secret ceremonies, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Only the bride and groom attended the Incan spiritual ceremony held on a mountaintop outside of Peru on June 21. The couple then returned to the U.S. and made their union legal with a beachfront wedding in Florida's Jupiter Island on June 30.

The newlyweds kept their nuptials hush-hush until a 4th of July barbeque held at the singer's Malibu home, where Newton-John, 59, surprised their guests with the good news.

Settlement Reached

I haven't been posting much on the Christie Brinkley divorce because it was just too much. I just don't understand why Peter Cook wouldn't settle earlier. Christie has been criticized for airy all the dirt in public, but maybe it worked? Looks like she gets full custody.

I'm not sure if the $2 million she has to pay him is part of a prenup or not. I would hope someone on their 4th marriage would have a prenup. Gotta protect your dough. She spent many hours doing those indoor gyms commercials with Chuck Norris!

After a night of intense negotiations, the warring exes reached a settlement Thursday morning at 6:15 a.m., a source close to the case confirmed to PEOPLE.

In the agreement, Brinkley received sole custody of their two children, Jack, 13, and Sailor, 10, and gets to keep all 18 properties in the Hamptons. She's agreed to pay Cook $2.1 million.

Cook does get "parenting time" in the decision, although Brinkley does have sole decision-making power.

18 properties in the Hamptons???

Don't Call Them Brangelina

I agree! I, for the record, don't call them that. So there.

TMZ is reporting:

A source in the know tells TMZ that one of the conditions of getting the J-P twins' first pictures is that the winning mag is forbidden from using "Brangelina." Multiple sources tell us the couple hates the moniker -- but no one more than Angelina.

BTW -- the bidding is now at $16 million.

AFI Tribute to Warren Beatty

This event took place last month, but aired last night.

As a Shirley MacLaine fan, I was happy to see her sitting at the table with Warren and Annette. I can't recall either sibling acknowledging the other, or even appearing anywhere together. When he gave his speech Warren did thank his big sis.

Annette is smiling in these photos, but when Warren gave his speech she did not look very happy. Annette is 50 and looks botox free. Warren is 71. He looks good.

MC Hammer showed up. Hey, they had to fill a lot of seats.

Anthony Michael Hall and Robert Downey Jr. weren't they both on that dreadful year of SNL?

Molly Ringwald. Didn't she tell a story about Warren Beatty hitting on her when she was young?

More on That Madonna/A-Rod/Lenny Thing

I don't really care about this, but- if Madonna is behind this as some pr plan, that is really low. I can't believe Madonna can't sell all her concert tickets without pr. I mean, aren't there gays in every city?

And was A-Rod in on it?

Dodd Romero, the hulking fitness trainer who accompanied Cynthia to Paris, told The Post that Kravitz blames his former manager, Guy Oseary, for entangling the rocker in the twisted tales about Madonna and the Yankee slugger.

Romero called Kravitz two weeks ago to tip him off that Oseary - who managed Kravitz, Madonna and A-Rod - was about to "pimp out Madonna and A-Rod," said a source. But Kravitz didn't approve and told Romero, "I'll take care of this" - and fired Oseary.

Kravitz was shocked when he was then accused of having a fling with the slugger's wife, said the source. Romero believes Oseary planted the story in retaliation for being dumped.

Kravitz, Cynthia Rodriguez and Romero were all in Kravitz's tour bus when the reports broke in Paris. "Lenny looked like he was going to throw up," Romero told the Post. "Lenny said, 'I worked so hard to clean up my image and now I'm gonna get dragged into this.' "

The trio planned to fly to Spain to meet up with Denzel Washington, whom Romero also trains, but canceled when Kravitz's alleged tryst made news. The group agreed it was best for Cynthia to instead head back to Miami to "sort out the mess."

A rep for Kravitz confirmed he dumped Oseary two weeks ago.

Why They Chose Sunday

Sunday sounds like a name that boring people choose when they're trying to be edgy.

Nicold (typo- but that's my new name for her!) Kidman's dad said he came up with the name.

"I have read a bit about Sunday Reed and her husband John – she was a key mover and shaker in the arts around the beginning of the century," Kidman's father Antony told Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph. "The name Sunday struck me as being a nice name for a woman, so my wife and I mentioned it."

Interesting that icy Nicold would choose a name that means a frozen dessert!

Britney Taping Video For Madonna Tour?

And I thought Madonna was a trend setter.

Despite rumors that Spears would join Madonna onstage, she will join Madonna on her tour, but only through a taped video performance, “Access” has confirmed.

“Britney’s doing a video piece this week for Madonna’s new tour,” Spears’ manager, Larry Rudolph, told “Access.”

Spears is scheduled to be filmed for Madonna’s tour at some point this week, Madonna’s rep, Liz Rosenberg, confirmed to “Access.”


I Was Just Wondering...

...how long these two would last.

The reason I even gave it a second was because Die Hard 4 was on, and Justin Long plays a computer nerd. I thought- how long could Drew put up with that personality? Yes, I know he was playing a part in the movie. But the Mac vs. PC commercials only add to his nerdy persona.

Anyways, next day the word is that they split.
