17Pam and Tommy: Back On!

Oooooooooof course.

These two are like the Ross & Rachel of the real world.

Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee are reportedly living together again.

Pamela and the kids have moved in with me,” Tommy tells Rolling Stone. “It’s awesome, man. It’s definitely working. You can tell on the kids’ faces — they’re happy when we’re together … We’ve only given it a try 800 times — 801, here we go.”

Note: I know this photo includes Courtney Love, and Courtney Love has nothing to do with this story. But I found it while searching for photos of Pam and Tommy — it’s from 2005 — and I just thought it was funny as all hell.

24Tila Tequila Would Just Like You to Know That Gay Marriage Is Legal in California Because of Her

“It is because of me — I definitely think [my show] has helped the movement,” she told Us Magazine recently. “Before it came out, everyone was still a little apprehensive about [same sex relationships]. Then they realized, ‘Wow, everyone is really into this stuff, and it is fine.’ The next thing you know, [gay marriage] is legal.”


I can’t even begin to count all the things that are incorrect about that statement.

But seriously, you guys, you can all sleep soundly tonight, knowing that gay marriage has gained not only widespread acceptance but admiration in America, all thanks to Tila Tequila and the trashiest dating show ever.

22Dr. Drew Apologizes for Tom Cruise Comments (Sorta)

I already weighed in on how stupid I feel it was of Dr. Drew Pinsky to run his mouth about Tom Cruise to Playboy, and apparently now Drew is realizing it was a mistake, too. So he’s apologizing. Sort of.

In a statement through his own lawyer, Drew says:

“Dr. Drew meant no harm to Mr. Cruise and apologizes if his comments were hurtful … Although Mr. Fields’s [Tom's lawyer] intent is clearly to slander and discredit Dr. Drew, under no circumstances is Dr. Drew making a blanket diagnosis about Scientology nor Mr. Cruise whom he does not know. Dr. Drew was simply using Mr. Cruise as an example of someone who is recognizable to help the public understand. Again, Dr. Drew meant him no harm.”

Um, Drew?

Let me reprint your quote once more: “Take a guy like Tom Cruise. Why would somebody be drawn into a cultish kind of environment like Scientology? To me, that’s a function of a very deep emptiness and suggests serious neglect in childhood – maybe some abuse, but mostly neglect.”

Okay. Hey. Take a guy like Drew Pinsky. Why would someone with an actual degree to practice medicine be drawn into a famewhoring, destructive environment like Celebrity Rehab? To me, that’s a function of a very deep emptiness and suggests serious insecurity in one’s personal identity — maybe some money-grubbing, but mostly insecurity.

No offense.

10That’s Vice President Lopez to You!

Jennifer Lopez was spotted entering Barack Obama’s office unannounced yesterday.

The conclusion from the kids over at E!:

Here are our best guesses:

1. She wants to be Barack’s running mate.
2. She wants to be Barack’s running mate.
3. She wants to be Barack’s running mate.

Um, while I personally doubt that this is the case, I would love nothing more than to see Obama/Lopez on the ballot later this year. Seriously if Barack needs to raise taxes, you can just put JLo in a low-cut top and have her announce the news. No one will get mad. It’s the kind of strategy that just wouldn’t work with Hillary.

14America: Now with Better Weed!

From the U.S. Office of National Drug Control Policy:

“The average amount of THC in seized samples has reached a new high of 9.6 percent. This compares to an average of just under 4 percent reported in 1983 and represents more than a doubling in the potency of the drug since that time.”

And you thought George W. Bush’s legacy was going to be all bad.

6Today in Genius: Top Chef Junior

OMG I hate that I’m really excited about this.

I’ve kind of gotten over the regular Top Chef. I haven’t watched it in about a year. It just gets boring after awhile; same shit different day, you know? Who won last night anyway? Was it a chick? A year ago, the winner of Top Chef would be all over the news the next day. But today, no one seems to care at all.

But I will totally watch this!

The folks at Bravo have given the green light to Top Chef Junior, a version of Top Chef that will feature chefs between the ages of 13 and 16.

What I’m most looking forward to is all the teenage sex they’re going to be having when they’re not cooking. It’ll be dramatastic!
