13Patrick Swayze: Alive and Kicking!

Back in March, word spread that Patrick Swayze had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and had only weeks to live. Patrick’s doctors quickly said that he was actually responding quite well to his treatment and, in June, Patrick announced that, despite his cancer, he would be continuing with his lead role on a new A&E series called The Beast. The show began filming in Chicago this summer, and just had its wrap party on Sunday night.

Patrick was present.

I’m not going to say he looks great, because he doesn’t. But he’s up and he’s walking and, hell, he just filmed a whole TV series. Not bad for someone who supposedly only had weeks to live as of March.

He’s pictured below with co-star Billy Dec.

29Well, At Least Someone’s Designing Handbags

If Ashley Dupre’s not quite willing to do it yet, at least Hayden Panettiere has begun an illustrious career in handbag design.

Hayden’s already the spokesperson for Dooney & Bourke, and they’ve released bags inspired by her before, but, for the first time, Hayden has worked alongside Peter Dooney to create her own signature handbag. The Hayden Clutch — available in a variety of colors — features a 24k gold plated lion head closure, representing Hayden’s astrological sign – Leo. The bag retails for $295 and will be available exclusively at Dooney & Bourke stores nationwide beginning in December. Hayden posed for pics with her new clutch at the D&B inside the Venetian in Vegas.

What do you think?

Will you pay $300 for Hayden’s little clutch?

And if she needed to have a “Leo” on it, I really think she should have used the image of my dog, not of a stupid boring lion.

11Jodie Sweetin: Still Divorcing Her Husband

In a move that absolutely no one except the entirety of the planet saw coming, Jodie Sweetin ditched her (second) hubby (and baby-daddy!) of 16 months last week, for no clear reason other than the fact that she’s probably doing drugs again.

Jodie hasn’t released a statement yet, but her agent says she is “trying to stay positive for Zoie,” their 7-month-old daughter. “Her focus is the baby,” continues the agent. “Jodie’s got a huge support system in her family and friends and she thinks this is what’s best for her.” Jodie and Zoie are apparently staying with Jodie’s parents. Translation: Zoie is staying with Jodie’s parents while Jodie scores meth.

And Cody’s still all like, “Dude, I so thought my quickie marriage to a kinda-sorta-recovering meth-head child actress was rock solid.” His actual quote is that he is “still discombobulated” over the split. “Not knowing what’s going on is hard … It’s rough,” he says. “Marriage is not taken lightly to me. It’s supposed to be forever.”

My Lord, how are these people so consistently blind to the fact that their marriages are oh-so-doomed?

24Cate Blanchett Should Totally Be A Marriage Counselor

Someone once said to me, and I think it’s quite true, that if your bodies actually fit together when you’re sleeping in bed — I’m not going to get into too much detail — you’re in good stead.

When you can spoon with someone, then you’re OK. Because you might not vote the same way, you might not have the same politics, but sometimes that works for people.

WTF?  Cate Blanchett shared this little gem of knowledge on Oprah.  You mean the success of a relationship is all based on spine curvature?  Why did she wait so long to share this?  If only I had known…I could have saved so much in attorney fees.  Thanks for nothing Cate.

16Happy Birthday Miley Cyrus!

America’s sweetheart turns 16 years old today.  Doesn’t it seem like she’s been turning 16 forever?  Like closing Disney so 7,000 people could celebrate her big day wasn’t enough.  They better not roll out a cake for her tonight when she performs at the American Music Awards.

Here is Miley arriving at the AMAs looking totally age appropriate. 

I’m sure Beet will have plenty of coverage on the AMAs tomorrow but here are a few of my random thoughts on the first arrivals:

Christina Aguilera, seriously, what has happened to you?  It’s like your face totally changed when you got pregnant and it never returned to its original state.  I realize part of it is just a normal maturing but something looks…off. 

As off as seeing Pink as she appears tonight.  She gets a lot of criticism so I give her credit for wearing such a feminine.  I think she’s damned if she does or doesn’t; I just never imagined I’d feel so uncomfortable actually witnessing her in an evening gown and nose ring.

I had to look up who the hell Shailene Woodley was.  I guess she stars on some show called The Secret Life of an American Teenager.  You’ll know her better as the chick wearing flower pots on her feet.

Toccara has been looking good.  And by good I mean like a drag queen.

I’m unnaturally distracted by Dancing With The Starsjudge Carrie Ann Inaba.  Is she missing a set of eyelashes on one eye? 

And finally, Ashley Tisdale.  You’re cute, you’re wealthy.  You haven’t been romantically linked to any Jonas brother.  Cheer up…life is good!
