Knut Dies

I can't even remember why Knut the polar bear became so popular. But he even made the cover of Vanity Fair. Knut died at the age of 4. A brain disorder has been mentioned as the reason for his death.

The L.A. Times has photos of Knut through the years here.

Blaise Wins!

The editors of last night's Top Chef All-Star finale skewed the episode so it looked like Mike Isabella was winning, but the judges gave the win to Richard Blaise.

Gawker has their summary here

Elizabeth Taylor Dies

Just yesterday I read that Elizabeth Taylor was too sick to deal with ex-husband Larry Fortensky's mortgage problems, and I thought- that can't be good. Today it was announced that she has taken what was remaining of Hollywood glamour and left this world.

Elizabeth Taylor was likeable. She could steal your man right from under you, and that probably literally has happened, and then charm you into walking her dogs. Her work for HIV AIDS was extraordinary, and she was working on the issue before our president at the time would even speak of it (good ol' Reagan).

Once we figured out Elizabeth was an alcoholic, it explained why she was on General Hospital in the 80's. Enjoy the bloopers, complete with Tristan Rogers who I LOVED. I belonged to his fan club!

You Could Be Charlie Sheen's Intern

Charlie Sheen is looking for interns.

I'm not sure if this is real, could be a joke. Seems like he could find social media interns without publicizing it.

If you're interested in applying, and I know you are, ways to make your resume stand out among the many would be to update your resume with words like "escort", "hooker", and "crack".

"Team Sheen Seeks Social Media Intern".

Celebrities Performed for Gadhafi

All of us make decisions almost on a daily basis that could have us supporting companies we aren't crazy about. There probably isn't a gas station around that doesn't have some shady connection.

But when a dictator wants you to perform for him, I would think this is when you might pass.

Beyonce, Usher, Mariah and Nelly Furtado were allegedly paid to perform for the Gadhafi family. Furtado made news recently by announcing that she donated her $1 million performer's fee.

I can see Furtado accepting money from a dictator, because she can't make that much money. Not that I think she should have, but I can see how someone in her situation would take it. And she was paid $1 million?! But the others should be ashamed at their greed.

Now Beyonce's rep is saying she donated the money.

They need to look up Lockerbie. Asses.

I'm on a Drug, It's Called Charlie Sheen

What in the heck happened? It seemed like only yesterday that Charlie Sheen was arrested on Christmas for an altercation with his wife and was also TVs highest paid actor.

My how the way-overly-paid-allegedly-women-abusers have fallen.

Now Charlie is on every talk show in what seems like a bi-polar manic rambling state.

Martin Bashir, now on MSNBC, had a great commentary on Charlie Sheen. I can't find a clip, but basically he mentioned that Charlie shot (allegedly accidentally) Kelly Preston when they were dating, had a volatile marriage with Denise Richards and Brook Mueller. But when he started making comments about his bosses, that was when the producers had enough. Forget the history of abuse to women (allegedly), but speak out against the producers. Forget it.
