I’m Giving Halle Berry a Pass on This Whole Jewish Nose Thing


In case you haven’t heard about it yet, you can read about Halle Berry and her Jewgate here. Basically, she went on Leno, showed some Photoshopped picture of herself with a really big nose, and said it looked like her “Jewish cousin.” (The “Jewish” part was removed from the broadcast at Berry’s request.)

As a member of the Tribe, I get to give people passes for shit like this. And I’m giving Halle Berry a pass. I really don’t think she meant to be offensive.

Even the Jews over at Page Six went easy on her:

Berry, 41, who sounded like she was near tears, told Page Six last night: “I so didn’t mean to offend anybody – and after the show I realized it could be seen as offensive, so I asked Jay to take it out, and he did.”

The gorgeous actress, who is 4½ months pregnant with her first child, by boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, said, “What happened was I was backstage before the show and I have three girls who are Jewish who work for me. We were going through pictures to see which ones looked silly, and one of my Jewish friends said [of the big-nose picture], ‘That could be your Jewish cousin!’ And I guess it was fresh in my mind, and it just came out of my mouth. But I didn’t mean to offend anybody. I didn’t. I didn’t mean any harm.”

Berry, who even offered to call Page Six’s source and apologize in person, said, “It was just a lighthearted segment that was meant to make fun of myself. There was a picture where I said I looked like Monica Lewinsky and one where I said I looked like Jay. It was just supposed to be a silly segment. I am so sorry, and I apologize.”

Anyway, I think she’s genuinely sorry, and, you know what, Jewish noses are funny sometimes. If Jerry Seinfeld had made that call, you would have laughed.

You’re still okay in my book, Halle.

David Chase Weighs in on Sopranos Finale


After audiences spent weeks grappling with the Sopranos finale in June, creator David Chase finally gives us his opinion.

“The pathetic thing — to me — was how much they wanted HIS blood, after cheering him on for eight years,” he says of the audience members who wanted to see Tony whacked.

And as for all the theories? “There are no esoteric clues in there. No `Da Vinci Code,’” he says. A.J. will “probably be a low-level movie producer. But he’s not going to be a killer like his father, is he? Meadow may not become a pediatrician or even a lawyer … but she’ll learn to operate in the world in ways that Carmela never did. It’s not ideal. It’s not what the parents dreamed of. But it’s better than it was.”

And as for the blackout at the end?

“Originally, I didn’t want any credits at all,” says Chase. “I just wanted the black screen to go the length of the credits — all the way to the HBO `whoosh’ sound. But the Directors Guild wouldn’t give us a waiver.”

The absolutely stunning Megan Fox walks the red carpet at the Hollywood Film Festival’s 11th Annual Hollywood Awards.

I can’t even remember that one movie she did once, but who cares?

She’s so purty.

OMG This Is So Sad

Guiliana DePandi at Biore Uncover Discover Event

When I saw the thumbnail of this picture on WireImage, I was like, “Oh, that’s so sweet. Guiliana DePandi’s walking the red carpet with a Downs Syndrome girl.”

Tragically, this is a Biore exec.

Poll: Ladies, Would You Go to a Male Brothel?

Would You Go to Heidi Fleiss’s Stud Farm Male Brothel?

As we reported earlier today, Heidi Fleiss will be opening The Stud Farm, a male brothel, in Nevada in less than two months. The brothel will only perform male-on-female services (sorry, gay dudes!) and Heidi’s hoping it’ll make her a killing.

Obviously women approach sex a little differently than men, and I have to wonder if chicks would actually go to this thing. So, sorry to be all exclusive here, but this poll is for the women who read this blog. (But I still love you, guys!!!)

Would you pay for services at a male brothel?

Apparently the Spice Girls Are Writing Lullabies Now

That’s what this is, right? A lullaby? For the 8000 kids you have between the five of you? Because the next time I have insomnia after drinking 5 Red Bulls (not FDA recommended, people!) and staying up all night trying to make this blog awesome for you guys, I’m putting this shit on loop and going right to sleep.

I cannot believe this is their first single. This sucks.

Maybe this shit flies in the U.K.? Can the British folk please weigh in? asldifu8ru94hrwesljdnvj 98ew6t79w4eshkdjasidfu84uoae8fsdu78 dfuaoeifuds8ov7fijoesoijefoihasrey89DFFSDFSDjfdklsdinn../.,,.ji;h

Joshua Jackson Will Guest Star on Grey’s Anatomy

Guess who’s coming to Seattle Grace?

Joshua Jackson!

The Dawson’s Creek star will do a guest arc on Grey’s Anatomy as a doctor, which’ll probably air in December or January, barring a possible writer’s strike. (You’re gonna start seeing that line a lot now, kids … “barring a possible writer’s strike.” Seriously, Hollywood, if all your writers strike, I AM AVAILABLE! Can you guys imagine if I got to write Grey’s Anatomy? Way more penis fish, guys.)
