Kathy Griffin Memoir Rights Sell for $2M


NOT TOO SHABBY, Miz Griffin.

Word on the street is that the rights to a memoir Kathy Griffin is writing sold at auction last week to an editor at Random House’s Ballantine imprint for more than $2 million.

That is NOT a D-list figure, dear.

I’m actually very curious to read this book. It would be cool to get a sense of what Kathy’s early life was like, and how she wound up being such a hilarious woman. That kind of funny is never the result of a happy, drama-free childhood.

Would you guys buy the Kathy Griffin memoir?

Mischa Barton Says She’s Not Anorexic, and I Agree


Clearly I have missed all the talk lately about how Mischa Barton’s lost a ton of weight, because I haven’t really noticed it. She’s dropped a few pounds in the past few months, yeah, but it hasn’t been, like, a gigantic Lohan-style drop or anything, and I still think she looks perfectly healthy. Mischa took to her blog to defend herself against the weight-loss rumors:

So lately there’s been a lot of crazy press about my weight and just so you guys know I’m happier and healthier than ever so there is no need to worry about me. Things are really well in Mischa world and I’ve just been watching what I eat.

I still love my pilates and yoga, and have cut back on fatty foods a bit. My time in India and Paris really just helped me lose a little bit of weight but there’s nothing drastic going on!

I appreciate the concern, I just wish the press wouldn’t harbor on it as I think it’s very unhealthy for young girls to read about and pay attention to. To my female fans: Just be happy and secure with yourself and don’t let other people’s perceptions of you dictate the way you live your life.

Just so you guys can check it out, I’ve put a few pics below that were taken of Mischa in the past month. She doesn’t look anorexic to me — she’s just cleaned up her eating a bit since this fall. I think she looks really good, actually.

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green Split … Again

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green Are Breaking Up Pictures Photos

Is anyone else tired of hearing this story every two months?

I really hope it’s true this time. If nothing else, so that I don’t have to write it once again two months from now.

Megan Fox and BAG have reportedly broken up and called off their engagement.

“The relationship had run its course,” says an insider. “It’s completely amicable, and they are remaining friends.”

Whatever. I don’t have complete faith in this story until I hear it from one of them or one of their reps. Like I said, we hear this story every couple of months. I mean, the rest of the world knows that this relationship’ll never work, but Brian and Megan have been taking their sweet time in figuring that out.

Your Daily Lohan


And what a Daily Lohan it is!

We’ve got a new photo shoot that Lindsers did with Hedi Slimane — and it’s nipple-tastic!

Is this the kind of “work” that’s been stressing Lindsay out to the point where she can’t eat?

Because she sure is tiny in these pics!!

Still, there’s no denying it: the camera LOVES this girl. And so do I.

The full photo shoot is after the jump. There a little bit of nipplage involved, so it’s not entirely safe for work.

I Feel So Vindicated


Is this a typo or is Michael Lohan trying to tell us something?  Is Ali in trouble too?

I had predicted that Lohan would be back to his Save Lindsay campaign within weeks.  But then he took his blog down, so I thought maybe I was mistaken.  I assumed that maybe Michael finally “got” it.  You can’t discuss personal, intimate family details on your blog when you are famous.  Which makes me very happy that I’m not famous; I dime out everyone.

Anyway…he has a Twitter account!  I did not know.  Click here to add him to your list so you can get the updates on Lindsay and how she needs to be saved.

At this point, I’m two for two on my celebridictions.  Nicole Richie is, in fact, knocked up.  Michael Lohan cannot, in fact, shut his mouth.  I think the only outstanding prediction I have is that J. Lo and Marc Anthony will split by spring.

It’s a slow news week, folks.  What can I say?

Octo-Mom And Octo-Gram Video Smackdown

Listen, in random conversation with people, I’ve said that the Octo-Mom is nuts.  Intentionally having more than four fourteen children is a clear cut sign of mental illness.  No psychological evaluation needed.  But now I realize, she’s actually nuts.  In video released on Radar Online, the baby factory goes head to head with her mom, Octo-Gram.

Nadya Suleman appears genuinely astonished at her mother’s perspective and possesses a debate strategy that doesn’t extend beyond screaming “Use them or destroy them,” and “You can’t go back and ring a bell,” over and over again.  Suleman’s mother, Angela, feels that Octo-Mom was irresponsible in choosing to be implanted with six embryos when she had six tax deductions already.

I know some media reports were claiming that Suleman wanted to look like Angelina Jolie, but I think she was aiming for Mickey Rourke.  And succeeded.



“Thanks. Another kid already?”

Sean Penn’s response to Madonna, as she congratulated him for his Oscar win, referring to Madge’s new interest, 22 year-old Jesus Luz.

Cripes, I don’t know if this is true, this came from The Sun, but I really hope it is.
