Apparently the LAPD Operates a Lot Like Your Cable Company

Okay, so here's like, my biggest pet peeve in the world. I call the cable company to ask a question. Before I can talk to a human being, I'm asked to key in my telephone number. I do this. Then a human being answers, and asks me for my telephone number. I give it to her. Then this human being asks me for my name, address and account number. I tell her. Then she asks me what I need. I tell her. Then she's like, "Oh, okay, I'm gonna have to pass you along to XYZ Dept." And I'm like "Okay." So then ...

John Edwards Admits to Extramarital Affair

It's opening night of the Olympics, and it also happens to be a lovely, summer Friday night that the country can't wait to get out and enjoy. What a politician to do?

The baby, son Parker Foster Aiken, was born early this morning in North Carolina. Clay was on-hand for the event, as the odd couple (who are platonic friends, obvs) plan to raise the kiddo together. Mother and baby -- who is reportedly dark-haired, not a red-head -- are doing well. Oh, and also? Clay Aiken is gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Bu...

The Suri Cruise Photo Shoot

Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise did a little photo shoot for the paparazzi in Manhattan the other day. This little girl, I must admit, is becoming quite adorable. When she was younger, she didn't quite know what to make of the paparazzi, but I think she's starting to understand what they are and how to pose for them. It's about time.
