You’ve got to like one thing about Paris: She’s consistent. Check out this noise where Paris says:
I wish the best for her and I just wish everyone would leave her alone so she could live her life
Dude, you totally hustled to get into a picture with her like two months ago! You are one of the people who is not leaving her alone! Look!
She goes on:
She’s a great mother and a great girl and I really care about her.
I don’t know that “great” mothers stay out late drinking and get their kids taken from them. I think that sort of behavior is reserved for people not actively being “great.” Maybe she could be a great mom, kick the habit, move away from La-La land, start hanging with some people who care about her, that’s all within reason. That’s not the current situation however. The chick is in a total tailspin, probably from hanging out with freaks like Paris.
I once heard a rumor that Paris drinks human blood EXCLUSIVELY as part of her diet.
But I’m sure she’s great!

When you pose next to yourself… you’re going to come up short.
This is her promoting some new bottled water or something. I don’t know – I can’t be bothered with the facts of the matter.

Doesn’t Ellen Page look like she’s sporting a fivehead here?
Perhaps it’s just the camera angle. In that case I blame the photog. After all, she’d just been nominated for an Oscar, you couldn’t come up with a non giant forehead shot?

Seriously I am confused. Are these fashionistas or Robots?

Here are some quotes from those remembering Heath Ledger:
“Heath has touched so many people on so many different levels during his short life but few had the pleasure of truly knowing him. He was a down to earth, generous, kind-hearted, life-loving, unselfish individual who was extremely inspirational to many.”
Heath Ledger’s father, Kim.
“It is tragic that we have lost one of our nation’s finest actors in the prime of his life. Heath Ledger’s diverse and challenging roles will be remembered as some of the great performances by an Australian actor.”
Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd
“I adored him. I don’t know how to compare his talent to others but he’s touched me deeply as a talent and it’s a great loss – losing him at any age would be a loss but it was pretty rough news. I was really shocked by it.”
“I had such great hope for him. He was just taking off and to lose his life at such a young age is a tragic loss. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.”
“What a terrible tragedy. My heart goes out to Heath’s family.”
“I am shocked and very saddened by the news. I deeply respected Heath’s work and always admired his continuing development as an artist. My thoughts are with his family and close friends.”
“I think Tennyson got it right in the poem when he described someone as having died at a young age but burning the candles at both ends, and oh what a beautiful flame he made, that was Heath, what a beautiful flame he made and a great talent. My heart goes out to everyone in his family and my family. The saddest thing is his daughter whom he just loved
Larry Williams – ex-partner Michelle Williams’ father.
“That’s terrible. Drugs today… when we stopped taking drugs, they started. It is just an epidemic. I am sorry to hear that. He was a great talent.”
“It’s really, really sad. I hope his family is okay. I wish them the best.”
“The studio is stunned and devastated by this tragic news. The entertainment community has lost an enormous talent. Heath was a brilliant actor and an exceptional person. Our hearts go out to his family and friends.”
Warner Bros president Alan Horn and studio president Jeff Robinov.
“He made a decision about four years ago to stop being led by producers and managers and to forge his own way. He started working with the most interesting directors. He was so successful at breaking out of the teen idol image.”
Neil Armfield, who directed Ledger in his last Australian film, Candy.
“I went through a similar thing with River Phoenix in the fact that he was so young. It’s a real tragedy when someone so talented dies because you don’t know on the early part of their career what more they could offer us”
Director Rob Reiner

The Sydney Morning Herald has done a good job of breaking down the story, from rumor to fact, complete with links.
Also, programming note, EvilT has been called in to help out during the Beet’s absence. She’s good people!
For you avid readers, you’ll notice I deleted the once funny, now weird, comment from my original post today. I’m fairly certain this blog doesn’t control the universe, so I don’t think I “jinxed” anything, but I of course noted the terrible coincidence and didn’t want you to think I was censoring all over the place.
Not much more to say tonight… we’ll talk tomorrow morning, bright and early.
