43Brittany Snow Busts Some Balls

I’m kind of obsessed with this clip from the upcoming Brittany Snow flick, On the Doll. The director sent it along to me, thinking I might be interested. And I don’t know what’s more disturbing to me: the fact that a total stranger who knows me only through my blog thinks that this sort of thing would be intriguing to me, or that fact that it actually is.

I think it’s just that I’ve fantasized about doing this to many an ex-boyfriend and it’s nice to see it actually played out.

I’m so disturbed.

This clip is probably NSFW. No nudity, but still …

9Oh Happy Day!

I went into Laremy’s office to whine about two things:

1) The fact that I didn’t have a laptop charger and my laptop was dead
2) My inexplicable bad mood

I left with the following things:

1) A laptop charger, so I have a working laptop again
2) A complimentary copy of The Andromeda Strain miniseries DVD — which I was pissed about missing when it was on television — courtesy of the production company, which perked me up

There is an important lesson here, kids:

Whining works. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Oh, and also, I just remembered that my period is supposed to start tomorrow, which totally explains the inexplicable bad mood.

8Look Who’s Helping!

Jenny McCarthy — who’s been fighting for safer vaccines for children — takes boyfriend Jim Carrey along to the Green Our Vaccines march in DC.

These two have been together FOREVER! And they’re almost never in the news unless they’re out supporting one of Jenny’s many causes. Sooo fabulous!

And Jim had this to say about his relationship with Jenny’s autistic son, Evan: “He taught me how to love. And without Evan I might never have seen the greatness of Jenny’s spirit.”

15Stephanie Tanner and Her Baby Are on the Cover of People Magazine

I like the headline: “From Meth Addict to Mom.”

As though they’re somehow mutually exclusive. Like meth addicts can’t have kids.

Jodie should be thanking her lucky stars for that little meth addiction. Without it, she and her kiddo would never have made the cover of People.

12Denise Richards Wants the Skinny on Charlie’s Wedding

Goddamn, it’s a slow news day. And I’m inexplicably grumpy today. Also, I forgot to bring my laptop charger to work and my computer’s dying. So I’m gonna keep this short:

Denise Richards has apparently been calling OK! magazine offices in New York in an attempt to track down an advance copy of this week’s issue, which features Charlie’s wedding on the cover.

“She was feverishly trying to get her hands on a copy. She wanted to prepare herself for what she was going to see on the newsstands,” said a source. Denise did photo shoots with OK! both during and after her marriage to Sheen, and that is partially why she felt comfortable making the call. “She feels like she knows them and can ask a favor, I guess,” said the source.

While of course Denise just needs to get the hell over this, part of me feels bad for her. I can’t imagine having to read about your ex’s new wedding on the cover of OK! magazine. That would suck big time.

Karma’s a bitch.

4Pleading the Fifth

I haven’t been covering much of the R. Kelly trial around here, because I think the whole thing is disturbing, and I’d just as soon not give this guy any publicity for doing what he did, but this is an interesting little tidbit:

A Chicago Sun-Times reporter, Jim DeRogatis, is refusing to answer questions on the stand at the trial, citing an Illinois law that governs reporters’ rights and the First and Fifth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution.

DeRogatis read the statement more than a dozen times in response to questions, including whether he once made a copy of the sex tape at the center of the trial.

Defense attorneys have said that copying the tape would have been a crime.

After DeRogatis’ 10 minutes on the stand, Judge Vincent Gaughan (GAWN) said reporters’ privileges don’t apply. But the judge ruled that DeRogatis doesn’t have to testify based on his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.
