Farrah's Funeral

Appropriately (and perhaps on purpose?), Farrah Fawcett's service was held at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels today. Her son Redmond was allowed to attend (he's in jail). Reports are that Ryan's children Griffin and Tatum also attended. He has another son, Patrick, that isn't mentioned. (I betcha it's Patrick that attended...isn't Griffin the one that got in a fight with Ryan a few years ago?)

Ok, I hope this isn't in bad taste to point out that Jose Eber has a black hat for such occasions. (Yes, I know some of you don't know who he is.) Maybe he frequently wears a black version, but I picture him in tan normally, for some reason. Why I'm acting like I've ever seen him much, I don't know. Just read this fact: he created Farrah's hair (I'm assuming the feather). I can't remember if I knew that.

He's also carrying a purse.

Marla Maples (with daughter Tiffany Trump), in a dress almost too short for a funeral, don't you think?

Cheryl Tiegs. The boots are a little, what? Young or something? I don't know.

Dick Van Patten. I agree, Dick, you don't have to wear black! And how did you ever find shoes to exactly match that suit?

Kate Jackson, aka Sabrina, aka the one I was when we played Charlie's Angels.

Not sure who this is...or why he is carrying the poster.

Rowe is Biological Mother

I usually don't regurgitate whatever crap I read just to have something to write about. Earlier I mentioned that Debbie Rowe might not be the biological mother of MJ's two children.

Debbie Rowe's lawyer had this to say:

"We refuse to be drawn into addressing the various rumors and speculation swirling in the media," said Rowe's attorney Marta Almli. "The vast majority of what is out there is untrue. Particular hurtful and insidious is the most recent rumor — which is entirely false — concerning the maternity of the children. Ms. Rowe is the biological mother of the two oldest children."

It makes more sense (although, when did that matter) that Rowe is the mother. Why would she get a donor egg, unless she was having a child for a couple (like in SJP/Broderick situation...although even then we don't know that SJP had viable eggs...not that it's our business).

And that's all I've got to say about that!

This N That- MJ

Public viewing of Michael Jackson is Friday, according to CNN.

While we haven't heard where Michael will be buried, it seems like they will do a Graceland type of museum with Neverland, right? Or is it tainted because of the child accusations that happened there?

Not surprising that Michael's white children aren't biologically his (and may be his dermatologists), but they may not be biologically Debbie Rowe's either. UPDATE: Rowe's lawyer says she is the biological mother.

Tribute concerts for Michael could happen.

Fred Travelena Dies

I was just talking to someone today and said "David Carradine, Ed McMahon, Farrah, MJ, Billy Mays..." and they said "there is one more". Keeping with the celebrities die in threes theme (which I don't think is real...we just assign it to threes).

Anyways, Fred Travelana, an impressionist from the days of yore, died of cancer. He was 66.

Anyone who was on Match Game deserves a shout out. RIP Fred.

Where is Bubbles?

I've been wondering about Bubbles!

The 26-year old chimp, who lived with Jackson in the late 1980s, has spent the past four years at the Center For Great Apes, home to forty-two chimpanzees and orangutans.

"He's a very sweet and nice chimp, he really is," says sanctuary director Patti Ragan. "I've seen him go to the drinking fountain, start to take a sip of water and then, when he hears one of the younger ones coming, he'll step back and let them have a sip."

Bubbles was born at a facility in Texas that breeds primates for medical testing before Jackson adopted him in the '80s. The chimp arrived at Ragan's sanctuary -- which is not open to the public -- in 2005 after the singer's former animal trainer discontinued working with primates. Not long afterwards, a rep for Jackson contacted the facility, saying that Michael wanted to come and visit his former buddy. But the singer never made the trip.

Looks like Michael save Bubbles from a life of medical testing. I'd be curious how much is really gained from testing on these poor critters. I still remember a photo I saw of a monkey gripping onto a cage with his arms, while someone was pulling his legs (I'm guessing to get him out of the cage), while he was screaming. Sad.

Oy. John Edwards might have a sex tape. That guy that claimed Rielle Hunter's baby was his and not Edwards (even though no one really believed it) is now writing a book. This could show Edwards to be not just an unfaithful husband, but a complete idiot.

And if you're a politician named John, we'll just assume you've had an affair.

Liza was interviewed on Larry King, and said, about her marriage to David Gest (paraphrasing): "Something came out...and I asked Michael why he didn't tell me before I got married and he said 'I thought you knew'". I barely care what this is, actually (Gest is gay? Gest was after her money? who knows). But, Liza looked good and sober.

Eddie Van Halen got married. I'm surprised the bride walked down to "When It's Love" (fer reals, she did...but as a string quartet version), beings that is a Hagar tune and all.

Deepak Chopra Says MJ Had Lupus

If you wanna read more.

But a British paper says Michael had a rare condition that affected his lungs. And, as a passing comment, the story says a Jackson brother told someone Michael had schizophrenia. You would think that would be bigger news if true.

That article also explains why a frail man would sign up to perform 50 shows.

Billy Mays Dies

The Oxy Clean pitchman was found by his wife this morning. She told authorities he went to bed not feeling well. He was 50.

Mays had been on a flight Saturday that had to make an emergency landing.

"All of a sudden as we hit you know it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping," MyFox Tampa Bay quoted him as saying. "It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head."

Results from examinations might be finished by tomorrow.

Governor Sanford Used State Funds For Trips (Like Palin)

Republicans are for small government, I guess if that government includes sponsoring their trips to Argentina to meet up with their girlfriend. Looks like Sanford actually suggested having state meetings in Argentina! And it looks like other people agreed with that idea! I guess our tax dollars are free cash for them.

While Sanford has agreed to reimburse the state for part of a more-than $8,000 tab that enabled him to see the mistress, state officials indicated they never intended a South American economic development trip to hold meetings in Argentina. That was only done at the governor's behest, said Kara Borie, a spokeswoman for the state Commerce Department.

Sanford spokesman Joel Sawyer said he did not immediately know whether Sanford's request for business meetings would have allowed him to have taxpayers cover the entire Argentina visit.

Some Republican leaders have called for Sanford to resign and some lawmakers and watchdog groups are pressing for investigations into whether he improperly used state money.

Meanwhile, the other hypocrite:

Gov. Sarah Palin has paid more than $8,100 to reimburse Alaska for the costs associated with nine trips taken with her children.

Michael Jackson Dies

LA Times is reporting that Michael Jackson has died at 50.

Reports are that he had cardiac arrest. He allegedly was training for his 50 concert tour in London which was to start in July.

Lou "The Hulk" Ferrigno's wife confirmed that Michael was training with Michael, presumably for the tour.

I had the tv on for hours and there was nothing really new happening, but I kept it playing.

RIP Farrah Fawcett

According to People.com, Farrah Fawcett died about a half hour ago. I don't know how they got the info so quickly.

I saw Ryan O'Neal talking about her a couple days ago and it didn't seem like she could talk. He was joking about it, but maybe that was his way of dealing with it. I had heard her family were gathering around her yesterday. For some reason last night I thought she would die today.

Governor Mark Sanford and his wife, pre-trip to Argentina.

Best Headline (Slate): Sanford and Son

Good thing the girlfriend's name isn't Elizabeth (you'll have to know Redd Foxx's character's famous line to get that crass joke)

Would it be a surprise if I told you Sanford wanted Bill Clinton to resign? Looks like Sanford will have to resign! In keeping with his beliefs, and all.

The press conference was weird, with Sanford giving more details than he needed to let us know that he went missing to visit his girlfriend in Argentina.

"I spent the last five days of my life crying in Argentina," Sanford told reporters as he confessed a yearlong affair with a woman there, inadvertently bringing to mind the theme music from the Broadway musical "Evita."

He should've gone to that press conference with a written statement and, unlike his marriage, not strayed from it.

Another Cheating Politician!

The missing governor was in Argentina.

After going AWOL for seven days, Gov. Mark Sanford admitted Wednesday that he'd secretly flown to Argentina to visit a woman with whom he'd been having an affair. He apologized to his wife and four sons and said he will resign as head of the Republican Governors Association.

It seems to me that he was having a breakdown. He was missing during Father's Day. Oh, and he was crying.

He told reporters he spent "the last five days of my life crying in Argentina" and the affair is now over. Sanford, a rumored 2012 presidential candidate, refused to say whether he'll leave office.

A former three-term congressman, Sanford most recently snared headlines for his unsuccessful fight to turn aside federal stimulus cash for his state's schools. His vocal battle against the Obama administration — and libertarian, small-government leanings — won praise from conservative pundits. Ultimately, a state court order required him to take the money.


Hollywood Baby Names

What would Hollywood children being born be without my sarcastic comments about their names?

I partially think if I had boy triplets I would name them Shorty, Smitty and Schecky just to amuse myself.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick had twins thru a surrogate. The names:

Marion Loretta Elwell Broderick and Tabitha Hodge Broderick

So the first one is named after Mrs. Cunningham + a woman who hangs out in the bowling alley all day + a manufacturer of some kind of farming equipment

The second one after the witch + the guy Bree is married to on Desperate Housewives (who just happens to have been on Sex and the City)

I get what SJP is thinking. The retro names are the anti-Ashley. Julia Roberts has Hazel. I'm not sure SJP got it right with retro, not that she cares what I think. She just shouldn't be surprised if at age 5 Marion Loretta asks big bro James to "be a dear and get her a pack of ciggies" (said in husky voice).

TLC Halts Jon Kate

I didn't watch the show last night, but someone did. It got record ratings. People- why watch? We knew what the announcement was when Kate filed for divorce earlier in the day.

On the show, they just announce that they're separating. But something happened that made Kate have to file for divorce on Monday?

Her being manipulative? What could he have done?
"Over the course of this weekend, Jon's activities have left me no choice but to file legal procedures in order to protect myself and our children," Kate said in a statement Monday night. "While there are reasons why it was appropriate and necessary for me to initiate this proceeding, I do not wish to discuss those reasons at this time, in the hope that all issues will be resolved amicably between Jon and myself. As always, my first priority remains our children."

TLC has decided to stop production on the show for a few months. Surprising for a network.

Jon and Kate have some announcement tonight and I don't care. They're divorcing, they're separating, they're turning lesbian- I don't care. Why watch a show that follows them around? I don't get it.

South Carolina's governor is missing. His wife doesn't know where he is, and isn't concerned.

People actually went to that Sandra Bullock movie. I think it's because of the hot tamale that is Betty White.

The Malcolm mom and guy from the West Wing are getting divorced after 17 years of marriage.

Hypocrite Alert

Oh those repubs. They hated Bill Clinton, and used the Lewinsky story as an opportunity to get him impeached. But many of those stone throwers live in glass houses.

The latest is Senator John Ensign, republican from Nevada.

During the height of the scandal surrounding Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky, the Nevada Republican denounced the president's conduct as "an embarrassing moment for the country."

'I think we have to feel very sad for the American people and Hillary and Chelsea,' he said.

Weeks later, Ensign would call on Clinton to resign. "I came to that conclusion recently, and frankly it's because of what he put his whole Cabinet through and what he has put the country through," he was quoted saying at the time. "He has no credibility left," he added.

And here's the story of his affair with a campaign aide.

Chris Brown Won't Get Jail Time

What kind of message is this?


Chris Brown has copped a plea in his assault case. He won't do jail time, but he will spend 6 months doing things like road cleanup. He's also been ordered to stay 50 yards clear of Rihanna.

He'll spend 180 days doing hard labor in Virginia which is where Brown lives - it's equivalent to Caltrans or graffiti cleanup.

He gets 5 years probation for FELONY assault -- he pled guilty. He'll get supervised probation. He'll have to come back to court every three months.

He must enroll in a domestic violence counseling program.

The judge said she wanted to make sure that Chris Brown "was treated as any other person who comes through this court."

If Brown violates probation, he could get up to 4 years in prison.

Rihanna is in the courthouse but never entered the courtroom.

So Brown is now a convicted felon and loses the right to vote or carry a gun.

Blogger, Black Eyed Peas, Get in Fight

Poor Perez. Someone didn't like the way they are treated on his website so they had words with him. And a fist may have been thrown. What does he expect for the way he posts about celebrities?

Perez Hilton, who runs a popular, but sometimes nasty, website, was at a Toronto Nightclub when Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas confronted him. At some point Perez told Will.i.am that he was gay and said he was acting like a faggot. This is according to Perez, who is openly gay. Why would a gay man say things like that I don't know.

According to Perez:
"He was like 'You need to respect me.' He was in my face. He was obviously trying to intimidate me and scare me," Hilton said. "I was like 'I don't need to respect you. I don't respect you and I did say this, and I knew that it would be the worst thing I could possibly say to him because he was acting the way he was. I said 'You know what, I don't respect you and you're gay and stop being such a faggot.'"

Later, when leaving the club, the Black Eyed Peas' manager struck Perez.

I am surprised this hasn't happened to Perez sooner. He is mean about people's children, he shows private photos of celebs that have been leaked, and he has famously outed celebrities.

I don't agree with hitting someone, and the Black Eyed Peas would be best to just ignore Perez altogether. But Perez must live in a dreamland if he doesn't think his hurtful words don't get under the skin of people. And if they run into him, they might want to knock him out.


Blind Item Revisited

I told you about him a year and a half ago. Crew members love him, and were sad for him because of a drug habit.

I was more surprised that he was a nice guy, than that he had a drug habit! But I didn't think he'd have it this bad.

Sad that a year and a half later we are now hearing about him in more mainstream news. This means his decisions are now being questioned by more people, and means he hasn't cleaned up. Hope he does soon.

Not Joaquin or Russell.

Not Owen Wilson. See if the original blind has a clue or two.

What could they have in common? She's concerned about fashion, he's concerned about having a daily BM.

They've been married for five years, that means she was 22 when they married. Kinda young if she was marrying someone her own age let alone someone 30 years older.

I don't even know why I care.

But Everyone Knows- You Don't Date John Mayer

I think the senior cashier lady at JoAnn fabrics knows not to date John Mayer.

So when Jennifer Aniston made fun of her dating life while accepting an award "for expanding the role of women in entertainment industry" (wait- what? Was RuPaul busy?), you just hope she knows that you don't date John Mayer.

"I'm trying to be more careful than I have been in the past about the titles of movies that I choose to be in," Aniston revealed. "It's funny – I kind of noticed something a couple years ago that there seemed to be this strange parallel to the movies I was doing and my life off screen."

“It started with, well, The Good Girl," she explained. "Then that evolved into Rumor Has It, followed by Derailed, and then there was The Break-Up. And then on the lighter side was Friends with Money, which I felt was a bit on the nose.”

"So if any of you have a project titled Everlasting Love with an Adult, Stable Male…,"

She forgot "He's Just Not That Into You".

Now, about that dress. While it's refereshing that she's not in black, or a tank top and jeans, those of us that watch the Fashion Show (sigh- yes, watching it) know that this type of dress, according to Isaac Mizrahi, is anchored at the waist. (One of the designers had a similar sweatheart neckline to this silver dress and it doesn't stay up on it's own)

Which means Aniston has mucho tape holding that thing up. And while I think a woman in her 40's doesn't have to dress dowdy at all, neither should their breasts look like baked potatoes, with a threat of a nip slip.

Why I Need A Flip Camera

Or whatever those inexpensive, small video cameras are called.

Crazy boy kitty was sniffing around the empty Trader Joe's bag (not cloth...some polyvinylsomething-or-other).

Being a cat, he does like to get into the bag. Somehow, when he tried to get out of the bag, it was attached to him.

Kitty ran around the bed twice- with the bag attached- freaking out. Then he hopped up on the couch and broke free from the bag.

We could be You Tube stars by now if I just had one of those Flip things!

Look out stalking cat. Ok, that version of stalking cat just made me jump (they edited out a few scenes).

Defensive Much?

Today on The View, when discussing the shooting at the Holocaust Museum, Elizabeth Hasselbutt brought up someone gunning down a recruiter for the military because of what that military was doing to muslims.

I have no idea when that happened, but it is so typical of Hasselbutt. If you bring up anything about a repub, she won't answer and will throw a Bill Clinton back at ya. And always with a furrowed brown.

Deflecting like a good Republican soldier.

But why is she being defensive? Because the alleged killer had his rantings posted on right wing site Free Republic? They have since taken it down.

Shame on you Hasselbutt for not sticking to the topic, and trying to get your republican agenda out there.

And to be catty- girl, your tan lotion is way uneven. Can't you go without being super tan?

Danny Gans Died From Drug Reaction

Las Vegas entertainer Danny Gans died from a toxic reaction to medication he was taking for chronic back pain, the coroner announced Tuesday.

"This is not an issue of drug abuse," Murphy said, though he would not say what the level of Dilaudid was.

Family members made an emotional plea for mercy and offered to apologize to North Korea after Lisa Ling's sister and a friend were sentenced to 12 years hard labor for illegal border crossing.

"The families of Laura Ling and Euna Lee are shocked and devastated by the outcome their trial," they say in a statement. "Laura and Euna are journalists who went to the China-North Korea border to do a job. We don't know what really happened on March 17, but if they wandered across the border without permission, we apologize on their behalf and we are certain that they have also apologized."

The families say they're "very concerned about their mental state and wellbeing," noting Ling has a "serious medical condition" – a stomach ulcer – "that is sure to be exacerbated by the drastic sentence."

The Tonys Almost Kill Bret Michaels

This is classic.

The Tony's started with a live performance montage of various shows.

First up- Elton John. No sound for a few seconds. Why do we see this on live shows? They rehearse, yes?

Then, it's West Side Story gangs and there's no sound again. The director must go to audience mics because it sounds like we're, well, in the audience complete with audience chatter (I'm surprised we didn't hear someone trying to open up a candy wrapper). I'm sensing that Scott the Engineer from the Stern show is working the sound.

Then when Craig Bierko shows up for Guys and Dolls, some woman in the audience screams in delight (she must recognize him from when he was on Sex and the City having ADD sex with Carrie). Who squeals for Craig Bierko?

The sound appears to be fixed, so we don't hear chatty, squealy woman when Poison appears for Rock of Ages (a musical with a hair band theme).

I don't think the audience:
1) knows Poison isn't normally in the production
2) knows who Poison is

Bret Michaels doesn't leave the set fast enough and just about gets decapitated from one of the set pieces after singing "don't need nothin' but a good time". Well, you might need a good time and good timing. ba dum chh!

Rizzo! I am not up on my Broadway shows to have a clue what show she is in. Just think, Kenickie is probably crawling on the floor in Pasadena looking for Percocet. He never was the same after he got hit on the head with the car door before the big race.

Liza graces the stage, and, yikes. Liza with a "z", not an "s" as in "sing".

All, in all, it was entertaining in it's glitches. And everyone seemed to come away unscathed (although no word on Bret Michaels' weave).

Ah, now we have word:
Neil Patrick Harris comes out and says Bret Michaels' performance "gave head bangin' a whole new meaning"...the audience "ooohs" and NPH responds- "he's fine".

Jane Fonda is the first presenter. She looks fantastic.

And with that, I change the channel.

Overheard in the Elevator

Two young women were talking about someone, I thought it was someone they knew.

Not word for word, but you'll get the idea

Girl 1- She was talking about how everyone was picking on her
Girl 2- It's an act...she's being a character
Girl 1- She was saying they were picking on her
Girl 2- She's just being a character
Girl 1- I like her
Girl 2- Oh, so do I (ed note: I don't think so)
Girl 1- She's always smiling, and so friendly and bubbly
Girl 2- I know (ed note: pretending to care)

Me (in my head)- They're talking about that dumb Heidi!

I wondered why Spencer and Heidi get any attention at all, and it's because of people like this.

Land of the Lost

There were some funny moments, but most of the movie you just smile along. So, nothing amazing. I didn't think it hurt the legacy of LotL by any means (like some fans are thinking). When Will Ferrell was on The Daily Show and they were talking about other Kroft shows, like Lidsville, the audience had no idea what they were talking about. So I would think it's making more people aware of the show, than tarnishing it.

Actually, Lidsville is one I've never seen. Don't know if my town didn't carry it or what. And, people talk about LotL being on Saturday mornings. I remember it from after school, and it would rotate. Sometimes it was Bugaloos, sometimes Doctor Shrinker. Maybe I'm confusing some shows. Time to look that up!

And if anything, it started the catchphrase "Matt Lauer can suck it!"

Oh, Lar

As you may know, I find Larry King entertaining in a non-intentional way.

Carradine is probably best known for the 1970's Kung Fu tv show. He had seven step and half brothers, some are actors.

I can't remember where I heard it, during one of the times Lar was interviewed for his book. And you know I would try and catch his interviews because I think Larry is hilarious. I do. I mean it is completely unintentional on his part. Like one time he called Fran Drescher Iran Drescher...three times.

Anyways, Larry said he went on a date with Katie, but nothing romantic happened. When they got to the door Katie said she had a roommate, so they said goodnight at that was that.

Yes. Now I know what to talk about if I ever run into Katie Couric.

I Thought Planes Didn't Crash Because of Weather!

An Air France plane is missing, and it is speculated that the plane hit turbulence or a storm.

Ok- you have to hear this.

I was returning from a trip last month, not comfortable with the plane moving up and down. When I asked the flight attendant about it she said "it's just weather." Very matter-of-factly.

I then had a conversation (in my head) with myself about how you never hear of a plane crashing because of weather, or turbulence. When I saw the flight attendant by the bathroom and thanked her for talking me through it, she continued to try and comfort me, saying planes don't crash because of turbulence.

Well, did Air France crash because of turbulence?
