David Blaine and Donald Trump announce their upcoming endurance challenge, where Blaine will hang upside down for three days from a thin wire strung five stories above New York. He’ll be attached to the wire with electro-magnetic boots.

19Oh Dear Lord Paris Hilton’s Dogs Got Eaten by a Coyote

I’d be way bitchier about this, but, when I lived in Arizona, I had an outdoor cat who got eaten by a coyote, and it was pretty devastating, so I’m not going to give Paris “you’re irresponsible” shit about this. It’s just really sad. I’ve never had an outdoor cat again, BTW. I keep my babies INSIDE the house now.

We are sad to break the news that Ms. Hilton lost two of her most beloved pets in an attack by a coyote that came down into her neighborhood during the night.

Unfortunately it’s a common occurrence here in LA where homes in the hills meet with wildlife in their back yards.

A source tells X17 Paris was “devastated” and that she’s been crying about it non-stop.

Aw, I’m so sorry to hear about this, Paris. Losing doggies sucks hardcore.

Meanwhile, the good folks at the upcoming Beverly Hills Chihuahua film sent over a little puppy T-shirt with their logo on it, and I snapped some pics of Leo in it earlier today. Will post them later tonight. And then you guys can be all like “I don’t care about your stupid dog!!!” but I’ll still be glowing with pride over my adorable dog in his adorable shirt.

6Katherine Heigl Is Quitting …

… smoking, that is, not Grey’s Anatomy, which is what I really want her to quit. Maybe I could start watching that show again if I didn’t have to hear Izzie’s whiny little voice in every other scene.

But, anyway, T.R. Knight tells In Touch that Katie’s quitting, and he’s trying to be supportive. “You have to be ready and find it in yourself,” he says. This isn’t the first time Katie’s said she’s quitting, so we’ll just wait and see. I have to say, though, I must have tried to quit 100 times before it actually stuck. By the end, I was telling my friends, “Oh, I quit smoking!” and they were just like “That’s nice,” like they didn’t care or believe me at all — and understandably so — and that shit just made me want to quit even more.

Meanwhile, the world of cigarette-lovin’ TV docs continues to turn, with ER‘s Maura Tierney giving this quote about her smoking to Glamour mag:

“When I can’t have one, I’m fucked. I’ve found myself doing things I’m not proud of, like digging through the trash for a butt. Or smoking through bronchitis . . . During a five-minute break at work, I’ve had to make the decision: Should I pee, or should I smoke? I’ve tried to do both at the same time, and it’s not very satisfying.”

48Yes Okay Let’s Talk About Josh Howard

I was actually trying to avoid this — mostly because, in all honesty, I have no idea who this person is or even really what sport he plays — but I’ve had enough of you email me about it that it’s clear you guys want to talk about it.

Here’s Dallas Mavericks star Josh Howard, being videotaped during the national anthem at a game. “‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ is going on,” he says. “I don’t celebrate this shit. I’m black.” Then there’s some muttering about Obama.

Discuss.

39Getting Into the Journalism Business

Ice-T’s super-classy wife, Coco, has launched a magazine. It’s called — you guessed it! — Coco, and it is, according to The Sun, “filled entirely with shots of herself.”

OMG.

Who the hell is going to buy this?

Are people actually attracted to this woman?

What the hell is she charging for this magazine? Please, folks, if you see one on a newsstand, email me with what it costs. And then linger by the newsstand for the rest of the day and photograph and interview everyone who buys one. I must know who these strange creatures are.

43Oh the Irony

Sarah Palin on Tina Fey’s SNL impression of her: “I watched with the volume all the way down. I didn’t hear a word she said, but the visual was spot on.”

It’s funny you should say that, Sarah, because it’s exactly how the Republican party is hoping Americans will approach you in general.
