Sarah Silverman Earns an Emmy Nod

Congratulations to Sarah Silverman!

Not only did she get rid of that waste of space boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel this week, she earned an Emmy nod for the brilliant song “I’m Fucking Matt Damon.”

She is up for the Emmy in the category of outstanding original music and lyrics.

Just to remind you how amazing the song is, I’ve reposted it above.

Ronnie Wood Checks into Rehab

Following his little tryst with a 19-year-old Russian girl (with whom he cheated on his wife of 23 years), Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood has checked himself into rehab.

“Following Ronnie’s continued battle with alcohol he has entered a period of rehab,” the spokeswoman said on condition of anonymity as required by her agency. “His close family and friends say he is seeking help and look forward to his recovery.”

Dude, when is science going to come up with a shot or a pill or something that we can give to alcoholics and addicts to make them all better? Or at least to help a little? It seems like everyone is just going through a revolving door of addiction, recovery and relapse. Remember my friend I told you guys about who was on a drug run? Well I got a voicemail from him last night, which he left while I was in the Dark Knight screening. I guess he did try to go to an AA meeting last night, but they kicked him out because he was too wasted (and he was obviously wasted when he left the message). I haven’t been able to get him to answer his phone since. How is it that we can put a man on the moon but we can’t do anything to help these people except for sending them back and forth to rehabs? Not that rehabs don’t help some people, but there’s so many more people that they don’t help, even for people who DO want to get better. It’s so frustrating to me. It’s obviously a disease like any other. We’ve come so far in working with diseases like cancer in the past 100 years, but it feels like we’ve made zero progress with addiction, and it really pisses me off. Sorry, I just have to vent. I’m really upset about this right now and just having a really hard time coping. So many lives lost in a slow, excruciating death at the hands of this illness. It’s so awful.

Balthazar Getty’s Wife “Humiliated” by His Affair with Sienna Miller

If you can believe it, the wife of billionaire Balthazar Getty is less than thrilled that he’s taken up with Sienna Miller, frolicking around naked with the starlet every chance he gets.

“It’s humiliating,” a friend of his wife says. “Rosetta left the country to protect the kids, and he continues to see Sienna publicly.”

The couple were married in 2000, and have four kids together. The youngest is 10 months old.


Barenaked Ladies Singer to Fight Cocaine Charges

Ugh. Internet connection’s on the fritz this morning. Grrr. Makes for an unhappy Beet. (And possibly for slow posting, sorry.)

But as bad as my day’s starting off, it’s still not as bad as what Steven Page is going through. The lead singer of Barenaked Ladies was arrested earlier this week on cocaine charges, which he apparently plans to fight tooth and nail. According to a statement on the band’s website:

“Many of you have probably read or heard press accounts about Steven Page’s recent arrest in New York state. Steven has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him and the validity of the charges against Steven will be strongly contested … While this is happening, it’s business as usual for Barenaked Ladies. We will continue to perform and look forward to heading into the studio later this year to record a new album. We want to thank our loyal fans for their continued support during this difficult time.”

The band, which recently released a children’s album, is supposed to perform next month at a children’s charity concert organized by Walt Disney Co.
