Very, very sad news.
Bernie Mac has died of pneumonia at the age of 50.
“Actor/comedian Bernie Mac passed away this morning from complications due to pneumonia in a Chicago area hospital,” his publicist, Danica Smith, said in a statement from Los Angeles.
No other details were available.
You’ll be missed, buddy.

Here’s Jessica Simpson singing her little country ass off at the Indiana State Fair.
If you look closely, you can actually see her ass cheek. See?
I tried to find a shot that was a full-on crotch shot, but there wasn’t one. Clearly the photogs weren’t trying hard enough. I’m sure it could have been done if they’d put some effort into it. What a wasted opportunity! This is what happens when you play shows in Indiana; none of the good photographers show up. In LA, we would have at least gotten a hint of labia out of this shit.

This first part of this should be getting a boyfriend who doesn’t kick her ass.
Angie’s boyfriend was arrested on Thursday for beating her up and leaving her with minor injuries.
“There was an incident involving Angie Everhart and her boyfriend,” said Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sgt. Scott Wolf. You know, I realized Scott’s performing career hadn’t exactly sky-rocketed since Party of Five wrapped, but I was pretty shocked to find out he was working for the LAPD. Aren’t you at least supposed to make a half-assed attempt at a singing career before you give up on fame entirely?
“He was gone from the location of the incident before deputies arrived,” continued Bailey Salinger. “There were minor injuries, but they did not require medical attention. He was subsequently booked for misdemeanor spousal battery.”
Angie, you’ll recall, scored herself a DUI in April and recently pleaded no contest to the charges.
Dump this dude, Angie, and get yourself some help. You’re 38 years old now, darling. It’s time.

“I lived in New York a long time. I love your paper.”
Kip Hunter, the former husband of Rielle Hunter, with whom John Edwards just admitted to having an affair. This was the only quote he would give to the New York Post when they called to chat with him. I think that’s awesome.
Rielle has a long and distinguished history as a party girl. In fact, she dated playboy author Jay McInerney for a few months, and he was so “intrigued and appalled” by the behavior of her and her friends that he actually wrote an entire book about it, called Story of My Life. And seriously if you’ve read anything by Jay McInerney, you know that intriguing and appalling him is actually quite a feat.
Now that Edwards has admitted to this, it’s fair game for the mainstream publications, so expect a lot more details to come forward in the upcoming weeks. I’m so excited!

The only question I have is: Why is this only just now happening?
I can’t believe that “Paris for President” shirts haven’t been around for ages.
But better late than never!
Paris’s rep says the venture isn’t only for profit. “It will have a charity aspect,” he says.
Hopefully that charity aspect will be to fund a new publicist for Britney Spears. She was also a huge part of the McCain ad, and, while Paris has done everything imaginable to capitalize on and profit from this “negative” exposure, Britney hasn’t even made a statement. Get with it, Britster!

Carl Blonsky was denied bail today by a judge in Turks and Caicos, who cited him as a flight risk due to his status as a foreigner.
He’s stuck in jail until his August 19th trial, as a result of beating Bianca Golden’s mother to a bloody pulp during a stupid argument in the airport.
Listen up, people. If you’re going to beat up a defenseless old woman over some stupid disagreement, do it in the DMV. That way, people will understand. The airport is stressful, yes, but not stressful enough to warrant beating up an old lady who’s not, like, pointing a gun at you. But at the DMV? We get it.
