Today's Blind Item - Yet another one, y'all Edition




"After this actor unexpectedly lost his wife, he had a major life change. Now that he's single, he's considered to be a great catch, but it's unlikely that any lucky ladies will "catch" him. That's because he now prefers young men. Particularly slender male escorts between 18 and 21.

He cruises the web for young men and calls himself "Leo." If he's VERY interested in someone he will fly the guy to wherever he is. He brings the escorts to his homes in New York and Los Angeles and is always polite and generous. Sorry, ladies."

Oh dear. I'm hearin' all KINDSA names with this one. Ask me and I'll tell ya.

Happy Birthday, Hannibal Lecter--I mean, Anthony Hopkins!!


Anthony Hopkins

 

Happy Birthday to my favorite Welshman, Hannibal Lecter Anthony Hopkins. Our favorite face-biter (swooooon) is 72 years old today. And as a gift, I have the alternate ending KISS from Hannibal.



Best. Kiss. Ever. I LOVE when he says,
"...that's my girl.". Mmmmm.


 This is good...

So when Stephen and I were flying back to the States from Florence (there's your Snobby McSnooterson Quote of the Day!), there was a gentleman seated in front of us, whom I swore was Hannibal. I wouldn't let go of that image of him feeding the little boy that a-holes brains. It. Was. AWESOME.

I know. Enough with the serial killer stuff. For today, anyway.


Annette? Not a WORD from you, ya hear?

This. Is. Awesome. (For dorks like me.)


If this awesomeness means nothing to you, we're through.

Not really. It just means you're not quite as dorky as I am with regard to the tremendousnous known as American Psycho. You know, the crazy-ass movie with Christian-what-don't-you-f*cking-understand-Bale as Patrick Bateman?? Check out this billboard in New Zealand.


I cannot look at anyone's business card without secretly laughing in my head because of this scene.

Thanks, Stuart!!

Eff. The embed was pulled.

Happy Birthday, Tiger Woods, y'all.


Ugh.

Hey! Tiger Woods! It's your birthday! Here is my little gift to you:

It's all OVER the internet that what happened Thanksgiving night was a bit more than what we've all been told. After seeing texts from one of Tiger's hoes on his phone, it seems Elin took a 9 iron to Tiger's face, leaving a huge gash on his cheekbone and almost knocking out those two enormous front Chicklets.  That would explain Tiger's resistance in speaking with the authorities. 

via TheExaminer.com 

"...between 11:30 pm – midnight, Elin confronted him about the message she found on his phone. It is also reported that she found photos on the cell phone.

Elin asked Tiger to come clean but he denied everything and told her she was reading “too much into it.” When he turned to face the television at one point thereafter, Elin apparently hit him with a 9 iron on the right side of his face, creating a huge gash and almost taking out two of his upper teeth.

Additionally, a bone was broken on the upper right side of Tiger’s face.
Tiger, shoeless, ran out of the house with Elin swinging the club behind him. She used the club to knock out the windows of the SUV, and from this point, the "cubs" began to emerge from Tiger's lair, one by one.

Bisher also reported that Elin panicked and called Mark Steinberg, Tiger’s agent, for advice on what to say. This accounts for the two different versions given by Elin.

Tiger was taken to the hospital where he was patched up but was told by the doctors he needed plastic surgery. They recommended a cosmetic dentist and a plastic surgeon in Phoenix."

Phoenix? That's handy. Isn't that where the posh rehab facility is that I wrote about yesterday?

So yeah. Happy Birthday, Eldrick Tont Woods.

Today's Blind Item - Just ONE MORE BABY Edition



"While you should take the rumors that she is pregnant right now with a grain of salt, this star couple is definitely looking to add a child to their family next year. Their latest hunting ground may surprise you. It's not Africa or Asia, or even the United States.

She wanted even more publicity than usual, so she looked beyond the usual borders to … the Middle East! Mr. and Mrs. recently made a very quiet trip to Jordan to inquire about adopting a child of Muslim parentage.

They were both very covered up during the trip, and she wore no makeup. As usual, this entire venture is her idea, and he is just tagging along. We're curious about his strategy for getting out of this relationship if their family gets bigger."


Oh, brother. Waaaaay too easy. I just highlighted the incredibly obvious clues.

Here comes Tiger Woods, here comes Tiger Woods, right down Rehab Lane!


'Member when Tiger used to
scream "EFF YOU SEE KAY"
on the green? Or in his driveway?
Or in his hotel room?

Okay. I'll stop. And I know that is a lame headline. It's all I have.

Did Tiger call Charlie Sheen and David Duchovny for a little advice? Sure looks like it. Now, this falls under the category of "Grain of Salt", but The Enquirer is reporting that Tiger is going to the rehab. Awesome. I'll bet there are some hot blonds with fake titties being treated for an eating disorder...just his type!  

via The Enquirer:

"In a last-ditch effort to save his marriage, a shell-shocked Tiger Woods will check into rehab to seek treatment for his sexual compulsions and prescription drug use, insiders have told The Enquirer exclusively. The disgraced golfing great agreed to get help at an Arizona clinic after spending the Christmas holiday with his family, say sources. The serial cheater's decision to get therapy is part of a deal struck with his stunning wife Elin to persuade her not to dump him.

"Elin gave Tiger an ultimatum -- seek treatment or forget all about winning her back," revealed an insider. "Rehab is at the top of the list of things he must do. Tiger will be going into rehab in early January to treat his sexual compulsion and his use of the drugs Ambien and Vicodin."

This will never work...in oh, so many ways.

Hey Marc Anthony and JLo at the Dolphins game--What. The GOTDAMNHELL are you wearing?


 A light blue jumpsuit.
Check out homegirl. Ohhmmm. Oh, gurrrl.

 
LOOK at his necklace. Or is it a neckPIECE?

First of all? These two are guilty as charged for having babies as Media Accessories. I just know Max and Emme are far more attached to their dozens of nannies than they are to these two dorks.


Okay. These outfits. The 70's are not coming back with jumpsuits--and neither are big ol' man necklaces. At. All. I don't care if this misogynistic tiny Puerto Rican a-holo owns a little bit of the lame Miami Dolphins. He looks worse than the woman he has in a deathgrip.

Clearly, I don't care for Marc Anthony. 

Today's Blind Item - Bully/Crybaby Edition




"Trouble is brewing between these two Celebrity families who used to be very close friends and the trouble started with their children. One child from one of the families is being accused of bullying a younger child from the other family. Apparently, when the two clans get together this older ‘bully' pushes, hits, threatens and intimidates.

To make matters worse, when the accusations were brought up, the parents of the child denied it and claimed that their child was close to perfect, further causing tension. Needless to say, the two families aren't hanging out anymore

No one from this is part of Sarah Jessica Parker's family."

[BuzzFoto]


 The Crybaby 
Kingston Rossdale

Bully possibility #1
Cruz Beckham 

 Bully possibility #2
Stinkfoot Suri


This is all speculation. Cruz Beckham is one year old than Kingston Rossdale, and Stinkfoot is 1 month older than Crybaby Kingston. 

I would die from laughter --  LITERALLY - if the bully is Suri. I think the Beckhams would have a little chat with their kid about bad behavior, but we all know Stinkfoot rules the gotdamn Xenu roost, so my money is on her being the brat. (Although, I think a side eye from a certain girafffe would make Kingston cry, don't you?)

Snippy, the newborn giraffe is totally judging you.


"Are you seriously wearing that?"


I'm dying. Wait...I have to say it like Rachel Zoe. I. DIEEE. (I got a tremendous pair of sunglasses from her fashion line for Christmas from my mom and I love 'em.)

This baby giraffe was born giving the head tilt, pursed lips and side-eye, with what appear to be eyelash extensions. (Patrick thinks he's queer, of course.) I just think it's hilarious that you can totally read his expression...first of all, he was born in Vallejo, California at the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. I think this tiny baby realizes that Santa Barbara is just a couple hours north and wishes someone--anyone would get him up there where he belongs. 

I don't blame him. (And I've seen that look in the mirror a few times myself. Hmmmph.) 

Happy Birthday, Jared Leto! Daaaayum.


 Awwww yeeaah.

 
DAAAAYUM.



Oh, Jared Leto. My mom loves you. Patrick loves you. And I love you, you purrrdy thing. I can listen to this cover of DumbassKanye's Stronger on a gotdamn loop. People love talkin' crap about Jared's band, 30 Seconds to Mars, but I love 'em.

What's your favorite role played by Purdy Jared? Requiem for a Dream, Fight Club, Alexander the Great, Panic Room (CORNROWS!), or as JORDAN CATALANO in My So-Called Life?

Happy 38th birthday, Jared. Mmm.  

Charlie Sheen's wife, Brooke Mueller wants a divorce. Blind Item Reveal!


The good ol' days


Well, well, well. What do we have here? The proof of my hints of the Blind Item I posted two weeks ago?


RadarOnline is reporting that Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen's wife and mother of their twin baby boys will be filing for divorce very soon.


"Sheen's arrest on felony domestic violence charges followed a night of arguing after a quiet trial separation of the couple, sources tell RadarOnline.com exclusively.

Mueller has now decided that she will file divorce papers in the very near future, we've learned exclusively.

Sheen's arrest on felony domestic violence charges followed a night of arguing after a quiet trial separation of the couple, sources tell RadarOnline.com exclusively.

Mueller has now decided that she will file divorce papers in the very near future, we've learned exclusively.

Both Mueller and Sheen were partying the night before the incident and had alcohol in their systems at 8:34am when 911 was called. Sheen has been through rehab for drug and alcohol abuse."

I think Charlie just needs a little vacation on The Privacy in South Beach, Florida. Know'msayin'? (Tiger Woods, y'all.) Because after that, he can just trot down to the Child Support Enforcement Office so his checks can be split between Brooke and Denise Richards.

Gotdammit, Charlie Sheen! Quit beatin' up your wife and goin' to jail!


Nice Christmas Mugshot


Oh, I know it's Christmas, y'all, but obviously the a-hole named Charlie Sheen doesn't know, so Imma cuss in this post, mmkay?

What a dumbfuck. What a lovely Christmas in Aspen. A dream holiday, if you will. A lovely dream made in hell. Guess which bitch is in jail again. y'all.

via TMZ:


"Charlie Sheen was arrested today in Aspen, Colorado and is being held in jail without bond.

Police responded after a 911 call was made at 8:34 AM. When cops arrived, they arrested Sheen for felony second degree assault, felony manacing and criminal mischief, a misdemeanor.

The name of the victim was not disclosed."

An ambulance arrived on scene, but the alleged victim was not transported.

Sheen will stay in jail until he appears before a judge.
 

UPDATE: Sources tell TMZ the alleged victim is Sheen's wife, Brooke Mueller. Sheen's publicist, Stan Rosenfield, "Do not be mislead by appearance. Appearance and reality can be as different as night and day. It would benefit everyone not to jump to any conclusion."

Asshole. Ummm...the appearance of Charlie's MUGSHOT is misleading? Oh. Okaaay.

Just so you know how we say "Y'all"...



Oh, Paula Deen. Patrick and I love this fine southern woman. And it's important to me for y'all to know how "y'all" is truly pronounced.

It's almost as if it because it begins with an "N", ny'all.

Merry Christmas and Happy 60th Birthday to Sissy Spacek!



Sissy Spacek is 60 years old? When did THAT happen? Here's a little bit o' Sissy in her Oscar-winning role in Coal Miner's Daughter.

You don't even KNOW how Patrick and I quote this movie...not quite as much as Raising Arizona, but almost

Another Brittany Murphy post - Troubling movie posters; "Deadline" and "Abandoned"



 Posters being pulled
for Brittany's film, "Deadline"


The posters for Brittany Murphy's current straight-to-dvd film, Deadline, have been pulled from Redbox kiosks, out of respect for the actress's untimely death this past Sunday.


While I was researching this film, I came across news about Brittany's last film Abandoned and was completely shocked by her appearance. Tell me what you think.

 

 
 The poster for "Abandoned"

 
 Brittany in character in "Abandoned"


Angelina Jolie as Lisa in "Girl Interrupted",
which Brittany co-starred as Daisy.
Resemblance much?


Prior to her sudden and unexpected death, Brittany Murphy had just finished working on her final movie, "Abandoned", in June. In the film, Murphy plays a woman desperately trying to find her husband (played by Dean Cain), who has mysteriously disappeared from a hospital.

So the thing is, why does Brittany seem to be channeling Angelina Jolie as Lisa from Girl Interrupted--the film they both co-starred in, and Angie won the Oscar for? Am I just imagining things? 

I don't think so. My eyes popped out when I saw that photo of Brittany.  Thoughts?

Florida boy who was set on fire by teens, Michael Brewer, home for Christmas


 Michael Brewer

 
Michael, struggling with his
painful rehab.


This story made me sick and angry when it happened. Three teens who set another young teen, Michael Brewer on FIRE over a "snitching" issue. Michael was released from the hospital today, but has, according to his doctors, the rest of his life to recover from these horrible injuries.


via CNN:


"Three teens -- Denver Jarvis and Matthew Bent, both 15, and Jesus Mendez, 16 -- are accused of being in a group that poured alcohol over Brewer and set him ablaze in what police said was a dispute over $40, a video game and a bicycle. All three teens are charged as adults with one count of attempted murder. Each has pleaded not guilty. If convicted, each could face a sentence of up to 30 years in prison.

Detectives say eyewitnesses told them that Mendez used a lighter to set fire to Brewer after Jarvis poured alcohol over him. Bent allegedly encouraged the attack, police said. Brewer jumped into a pool at his apartment complex to put out the flames.

Authorities have said Mendez admitted setting Brewer on fire. According to an arrest transcript, the boy said he made a "bad decision."

As a mother of two sons, I simply cannot fathom how Michael's mother must feel seeing her darling boy suffering so horribly at the hands of three thugs who set him on fire. I saw Valerie Brewer interviewed today on CNN after Michael was finally allowed to go home after spending  months in intensive care for major burns over most of his body. Michael's mother also discussed the night terrors he has each and every night, and how he fears for his safety. It's being reported that the family is no longer living in the home in Deerfield Beach, Florida because none of them feel safe, and that Michael is suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, and will for years.


I know it's probably not appropriate for me to feel as angry as I do about this poor child and the uphill battle he has ahead of him, but I do indeed feel a huge amount of rage. I remember seeing one of the thugs' mothers doing the typical "not MY boy!!" crap for the cameras when asked about how she felt about her son ("allegedly", my ass) participate and laugh while setting Michael on fire. MONSTERS. All of them.


I admire Michael for his bravery in every respect. To have the good sense to jump into a neighbor's pool while he was on fire was amazing in itself.  He was stoic and courageous during his painful stay in the hospital, as he is being now while enduring the painful rehabilitation, that causes cracking and bleeding when he has to stretch his limbs.


My heart goes out to this strong, brave family.

Amy Winehouse Arrested...Again.


"WOT???"

Oh, Amy Winehouse. Up to The No Good again.

"Singer Amy Winehouse was facing a police investigation today for allegedly lashing out at a theatre manager after subjecting panto actors to a stream of abuse.


The troubled star is said to have disrupted a performance of Cinderella on Saturday night by heckling the cast.

She is later alleged to have launched a physical attack on a member of staff at the theatre in Milton Keynes, Bucks.

The Back to Black singer was said to have shocked children and parents by shouting 'He's f ****** behind you' during the performance and yelling out 'F*** Cinders, Prince Charming, marry me".


Refusing to sit down, she also branded the Ugly Sisters 'bitches", The Sun reported.

According to the paper, she later launched herself at front-of-house manager, Richard Pound, allegedly pulling his hair, punching him and kicking him between the legs.


Her outburst was said to have exasperated stars of the show, including Fairy Godmother Anthea Turner, comedian Bobby Davro, playing Buttons, and actor Mickey Rooney, as Baron Hardup."

Hold up. A couple of things: Mickey-Bloody-Rooney is still alive and performing? That's a good one.

And for those of us who really know the story of "Cinderella"...the ugly step-sisters were bitches.

LEAVE AMY ALONE!!!!

Heh. 
  

Brittany Murphy's Funeral to be held December 24th, Christmas Eve


 
Rest in peace, Beautiful Girl

Brittany Murphy will be buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood Hills tomorrow, Christmas Eve, in a private ceremony.

The Los Angeles Coroner will hopefully have toxicology reports in 4-6 weeks that will give some insight as to the young star's sudden death on Sunday. 

Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins Break Up After 23 Years Together...


Wow. It's OVER.

Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon broke up? Wow. They were always sorta looked upon as The Perfect Hollywood Couple That Didn't Need a Piece of Paper to Prove Their Love, right? Apparently the couple has been separated since this past summer, but are just now making the official announcement. 

Next thing ya know, we'll be hearing that Kurt and Goldie are breaking up! NOOOO! 

Prince William Sleeps on London Street...


Prince William "homeless" in London

Prince William certainly seems to be carrying out his mother's compassion, once again.  In order to understand the true plight of the homeless, he spent the night near a bridge in London by trash bins.

via NPR.com

"I cannot, after one night, even begin to imagine what it must be like to sleep rough on London's streets night after night ..." the 27-year-old son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana says in a statement posted online by Centrepoint, a charity that focuses on the homeless. "I hope that by deepening my understanding of the issue, I can help do my bit to help the most vulnerable on our streets."

Somehow I don't see Prince Charles ever doing anthing like this in his youth...just sayin'.

Brittany Murphy's Husband, Simon Monjack Speaks Out About His Wife's Death...


 Simon Conjack Monjack
driving himself around the
day Brittany died. Seriously?

I gotta tell ya something. If I were dealing with the death of my spouse or a child, the LAST GOTDAMN THING I would be doing is talking to ANYONE. And I mean ANYONE. Get. The. EFF. Away. That includes news, bloggers or Access-Freaking-Hollywood.


When I hear about someone like this Monjack character (aka Brittany Murphy's husband) talking to Access Hollywood, it makes me cringe. We're all getting the sense that he's trying to clear his name before it's officially sullied. 

via AccessHollywood:

“My world was destroyed yesterday,” an emotional Monjack told Access Hollywood on Monday afternoon.

Following the news of the actress’ death at the age of 32 on Sunday, the Hollywood community offered an outpouring of love and condolences for Murphy – and one message, in particular, was very moving to Monjack.

“I loved what Ashton [Kutcher] wrote on Twitter. It was comforting to me,” Monjack told Access Hollywood, adding he did not know his wife’s former “Just Married” co-star personally. “I couldn’t have said it better.” (Really, dude? YOU couldn't have said it better?  You left it to your wife's ex-fiance`?)

The message posted by Ashton read, “2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine. My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittany’s family, her husband, & her amazing mother Sharon. see you on the other side kid.”

“She had laryngitis,” he said, noting she had seen a doctor. “She had been tired at the end of the year. She had made a couple movies.” (Oh, and all those prescription drugs found by the bed...)

In his interview with Access, Monjack – who married Murphy in 2007 — took exception to the idea that his wife may have been linked to people who were bad influences on her. (He took "exception", did he?)

“I don’t know why anyone would think that,” he said. “She found love. We found love. Brittany didn’t get to where Brittany was with anyone controlling her… Brittany was Brittany.”

Another publication had some more descriptive outline of this guy and his questionable behavior:

via US Magazine:

Regarding Simon Monjack:

1. He's Been Friends With Brittany Since She Was 17 But they didn't wed until 2007 -- after her two failed engagements to best-boy grip Joe Macaluso and talent agent Jeff Kwatinetz and a seven-month romance with Ashton Kutcher.


2. His nickname to some is "Conjack" He started out directing commercials and later went on to work as a director and screenwriter. But Vanity Fair points out "his most significant credit to date is contributing story material" to the 2006 Edie Sedgwick bio Factory Girl. The film's director George Hickenlooper has accused Monjack -- dubbed "Conjack" by some associates who accuse him of shady business dealings -- of improperly suing to get an executive producer credit on the film, which Hickenlooper alleges Monjack then used to scam his way into other productions. Hickenlooper recently blogged (according to VF):

"He is a con man and a bad guy. When Brittany married him I warned her and warned her as did so many others. I only hope to God that this creep wasn't instrumental in her sad sad demise."
 
Vanity Fair is NOT a gossip rag, y'all. Oh, and Brittany's long-time friend Jamie Presley's response when asked if she was close to Brittany--"I was, before she married him." Wow.


3. He was evicted According to New York's Daily News, there was a big income disparity between Murphy and Monjack. While she was paid $4 million for 2004's Little Black Book, he encountered numerous financial woes (he was once reportedly sued by a mortgage company for $470,000 and evicted from his residence).

4. He was "incoherent," hospitalized a month before Brittany's death In November, he was rushed to a L.A. hospital after reportedly becoming incoherent during a flight from Puerto Rico (where he was accused of causing problems on the set of one of Murphy's former films, which they denied). Murphy had said he was treated for asthma.


5. He frantically tried to save her life After Murphy was found
"unresponsive" on her bathroom floor Dec. 20, Monjack, who was in bed, ran to the bathroom, according to notes from an investigator with the Los Angeles coroner's office. He "attempted to revive the descendent by placing her in the shower and running the water."



6. He initially didn't want an autopsy performed He has said it was because he "couldn't bear" the idea of his wife being cut open. (An autopsy was performed Monday, but toxicology results could take up to six weeks to be final.)


7. He insists they were in love "We found love," he told Access Hollywood Monday. "Brittany didn't get to where Brittany was with anyone controlling her."


Bottom line: I would need to be admitted to the gotdamn NUTHOUSE if I were him. What about y'all? Is it just me?

Lindsay's sister, Ali Lohan turns 16 today?


 "Doctor? Please make me look like a MILF!"

 
Nice. A boob job in Ali's early teens.

Ali Lohan, Lindsay's younger sister, turns 16 today. I know, right? I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Ali looks like a 45 year old divorcee` who flirts with the junior high neighbor boys and works as a cocktail waitress at night (Tiger Woods, y'all) while her kids are "asleep". 


I'm still waiting for the porn version of Sister Act. What would VIVID call it, though? Little Sister ActMommy Pushed Two Sisters to "Act"Sisters Acting like Pornstars?

Michael and Dina Lohan? You two are going to hell in a handbasket for not being decent parents.  Ya hear me talkin' to ya?

Brittany Murphy's prescription drugs found in home by paramedics


Brittany Murphy

TMZ.com has revealed a list of prescription medications found in the bedroom belonging to Brittany Murphy by paramedics when they arrived to attempt to revive her, unsuccessfully.

"When the paramedics arrived, Brittany was "without signs of life."

"Paramedics moved Brittany from the bathroom to the master bedroom, where they found a slew of prescription drugs -- "A check of the nightstands revealed large amounts of prescription medication in the decedent's name. Also noted were numerous empty prescription medication bottles in the decedent's husband's name, the decedent's mother's name and unidentified third party names."


According to the notes, the medications included Topamax (anti-seizure meds also to prevent migraines), Methylprednisolone (anti-inflammatory), Fluoxetine (depression med), Klonopin (anxiety med), Carbamazepine (treats Diabetic symptoms and is also a bipolar med), Ativan (anxiety med), Vicoprofen (pain reliever), Propranolol (hypertension, used to prevent heart attacks), Biaxin (antibiotic), Hydrocodone (pain med) and miscellaneous vitamins.

Very troubling, indeed.

Brittany Murphy Update - Autopsy Completed; Rumors Still Circulate


1977 - 2009

So, I'm hearing that Brittany's autopsy results were "normal". By that, they mean there was no outward appearance of trauma and her organs looked relatively "normal".  We won't hear about any toxicology reports for 4-6 weeks, and remember, too, that a lot of prescription medications were found in her home. I believe her doctor(s) will be having a chat with the authorities...and soon.


Meanwhile, LOTS of reporters are commenting on what a dirtbag her husband, Simon Monjack was/is, whether it's fair or not. Hundreds of fingers are bring pointed his way with regard to Brittany's demise and Monjack's influence on her lifestyle.  We'll have to see what transpires.

Meanwhile, I found a lovely tribute to Brittany on YouTube.


via YouTube

Oh, and TMZ also reported that Brittany left a will - and left everything to her mom. I do know that California is a community property state, which should mean her estate would go to her strange husband at the end of the day. Again, we'll see what happens. "Natural causes" as the reason for a 32-year old woman just doesn't sit well with me. It's well-known that she had body image issues. I think she was extremely beautiful; those enormous eyes and engaging smile...







I think it's just sad all the way around.  

Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo gives grizzly bears a special holiday treat!


A spaghetti and pineapple Christmas tree!

How sweet is this? 


via KOMO4News.com

"The grizzlies at the Woodland Park Zoo got a treat this morning when what to their wondering eyes should appear but a tree decorated with pineapple rings.

Zoos call this sort of thing "enrichment" for the animals, but it's also a good way to drum up off-season business.

Until Jan. 3, mention "Winter Fun" upon entry and one child 12 & under gets in free with each paying adult.

Here's the schedule:

Monday, December 21, 28              
11:00 a.m., Sun bears                      
Noon, Grizzlies                                 
1:30 p.m., Pigs                                  
2:00 p.m., Elephants

Tuesday, December 22, 29

Noon, Otters                                 
1:00 p.m., Golden lion tamarins                               
2:00 p.m., Tigers

11:00 a.m., Snow leopard cubs                  
1:00 p.m., Gorillas                               
1:30 p.m., Penguins                                 
2:00 p.m., Australian birds and keas
 
I love The Woodland Park Zoo. It's a lovely natural space for the animals and birds (the penguin exhibit is amazing!),  and the folks who work with the animals are so devoted. During Halloween, many of the animals are given pumpkins for a special snack! 

Darling!

"...this A list singer who is married to an A list movie actress was in a music store over the weekend and was looking at guitars and trying some of them out. Also in the store at the same time was a teenager who was looking at effects pedals. The specific one the kid was looking at cost about $500 which is pretty pricey for a pedal.

Anyway our singer and the teen talked for awhile and then the singer ended up buying a guitar for himself. While he was at the counter paying he told the cashier to also charge the effects pedal to his credit card and to tell the teen Merry Christmas."


Give me the:

#1 - A list singer
#2 - A list actress

At first I was thinking it was the One I Loathe's husband. After giving it some thought, I realized neither one of them would stoop to even speaking to the dirty masses. (HER words.)

I think it's a handsome, nice man who is married to a gal from his hometown...far and away. 

Tiger Woods continues to be a Grade-A A-Hole.


It's now called The Dumbass


Oh, Tiger Woods. Is this really the best idea you could come up with for Christmas? 

Tiger thinks that by loading up his yacht called Privacy (eyeroll) with a bunch of his buddies (only dudes--as bloody IF) and setting off for The Bahamas is the awesome thing to do in the midst of his marriage falling apart.  Isn't that what any married guy caught with over 10 mistresses would do? 

Enjoy it, my friend. Come 2010, you will be hit with a stack of divorce papers heavy enough to sink that little boat.


 

If it's Monday, it must be time for a Lindsay Lohan NSFW photo, right?


So fresh, so clean and refined.

I swear, if the lovely folks at Vivid haven't placed calls to Lindsay's um, people (read: her Twitter account), to do some good, old-fashioned pornography for us, they should be ashamed of themselves.

Or maybe I should be ashamed of my own damn self for posting this out-take from Lindsay's MUSE Magazine photoshoot. It's called, Full Body Fishnets and Toilet Seat, I think. 

"Faster Kill Pussycat" by Paul Oakenfold (feat. BRITTANY MURPHY)



I'm a huge Paul Oakenfold fan. Huge.

I thought I'd post this cool video of Faster Kill Pussycat, the collaboration between Paul and Brittany Murphy, who died yesterday at the age of 32.

It'll probably become a bigger hit now than when it was released, because that's how it works these days, sadly.

Brittany Murphy was sick prior to her death Sunday morning; lots of prescription meds found at the home...



Lovely photo.

It's being reported that Brittany Murphy was not feeling well early this morning. We're also hearing reports that her husband, Simon Monjack did not want an autopsy performed by the Los Angeles Coroner. I find that odd. Wouldn't you think he'd want to know what caused his young wife's death? I hate to say it's a bit of a red flag, but I just reallly think it's a very strange thing to request. I doubt that the authorities will honor his weird request, given the fact that there is now an "investigation" into Brittany's death.
 
via TMZ.com and ONTD:

We're told Murphy was taking prescription meds for flu-like symptoms she had been experiencing for several days. We're told Murphy began vomiting early Sunday morning and told family members she was feeling very ill.

Sources say various prescriptions were found in the home -- written for Brittany Murphy, husband Simon Monjack, and Brittany's mom. One source says, "There were a lot ... a lot of prescriptions in the house."

Law enforcement sources tell us Murphy collapsed in the bathroom and somehow ended up in the shower ... there was, we're told, a significant amount of vomit in the immediate area.

We're also told authorities did not find illegal drugs in the house, but Murphy was definitely taking various prescription meds.

Sources say her condition and the meds could have triggered a heart attack, but it's too early to know. An autopsy will be performed Monday or Tuesday. We reported earlier Monjack did not want an autopsy but ultimately it's the Coroner's call.

As we first reported, Brittany Murphy's mother told paramedics her daughter suffered from diabetes. We're told it was type 2 diabetes and people involved in the case doubt her condition caused her death."

I'm very curious to find out the types of meds Brittany was taking...of all sorts. This really is a sad Hollywood story. It's a sad story no matter what, actually.

Latest Update on Brittany Murphy's Untimely Death.


Recent photo of Brittany Murphy looking awfully thin.


I really don't enjoy just reporting what other sites are posting, but the following update seems to really cover the most up-to-date information about the sad and untimely death of actress, Brittany Murphy.


via OKMagazine.com

"With sudden news of Brittany Murphy’s death after a 911 call was placed from her home in L.A. early Sunday morning, Hollywoodlife.com reveals how her husband reacted to the tragedy and what went on inside their private house hours after her passing.



Simon Monjack, Murphy’s husband since 2007, was seen pacing back and forth in front of their home after coming back from the hospital where his wife was pronounced dead at 10:04 AM according to Hollywoodlife.com.

The shaken screenwriter was spotted by a witness at the scene crying and screaming while on the phone that afternoon accompanied by a bodyguard, family, and the county coroner at the house, Hollywoodlife.com reports.

Sharon, Brittany’s mother, who found her unconscious and called the paramedics, remained at the hospital until later in the afternoon, where her daughter’s body still remains.

Hollywoodlife.com also spoke with neighbors at the scene while Brittany was being wheeled out to the ambulance on a stretcher.

Claire Staples, who lives nearby, tells Hollywoodlife.com that, “It was obvious she was already gone by the time they brought her down from the house.”

Although paramedics, who arrived at the West Hollywood residence at 8:30 AM, were attempting to give the actress CPR by, “sticking tubes down her throat,” Staples claims that Brittany already, “looked yellow.”
And while the medical team tried to revive Brittany, a very shaken Simon stayed away from the body, still in his pajamas from the night before, Hollywoodlife.com reports.

As for now, Assistant Chief Ed Winter of the L.A. Count Coroner’s office tells Hollywoodlife.com that he was present at Murphy’s house in the afternoon for a, “general investigation,” into her death."

I need to reiterate the issue of drugs and weight-loss in women. I've fucking been there. To hear that Brittany was found in the shower is totally not shocking. Taking a shower is one of the most difficult chores for someone who is dangerously underweight. I needed a chair when I was in Casa Palmera in order to take a shower...and even then, I couldn't do it every single day. When I got home, Stephen had to stand next to the shower to makes sure I didn't collapse. Add the possibility of drugs in Brittany's system (which has not been determined, only rumored about), it's a lethal combination.


Nice, huh? 
Another photo of your's truly in 2008.


This whole situation makes me sad and angry. At Hollywood. At society. At what we do to ourselves in search of PERFECTION and to TRY TO MAKE OUR DEMONS DISAPPEAR.  

Brittany, I hope you find peace now, but I just don't know what happens now.


Fuck.

I'm watching The Dark Knight AGAIN...and I love it even more.


LOVE. THIS. SCENE.





I effing love this movie---STILL. And I'm not afraid to say I was on the Joker's side part of the time. ForpitySAKE, he's the only one who had a gotdamn sense of humor. You know I'm right.

I also felt some weird deep empathy for The Joker in the clip above. I see and hear the pain in his voice.. I know. I'm a freak and I admit it. 

So yeah. Hannibal Lecter, The Joker and me...in my darkest dreams.


 



Don't be afraid....HAHAHHAAHAAA!
