Rumer Willis Is Under the Impression that She Has a Profession

“Before I started working,” she says. “I would have said, ‘You know, it’s not really fair, because I didn’t choose this.’ But when you decide to be a part of this profession and put yourself out there, then you kind of have to accept what it is.”

She continues to tell the media that fame “is a 24-hour job. It doesn’t matter if you are going out to a restaurant – you have to be aware of what you are doing and how you look and how you are presenting yourself, because most of the time people never get to know you.”

Rumer. Darling.

I hate to break it to you, but I can’t name a single thing you’ve been in. IMDB barely can. You do not have a profession. Your profession is having us talk about you because you’re Bruce Willis’ daughter and Tallulah’s not really old enough yet and we get bored of the same five people around here all the time. We write about you in much the same way we write about Paris Hilton’s shoes; you’re an accessory. That’s all. We’ll tire of you soon enough, don’t worry.

Alicia Witt is Going on Safari

Alicia Witt at Bon Appetit Supper Club and CBS News Anchor Katie Couric Host Dinner For The Feature Film “Kite Runner”, Pictures, Photos

Okay.

Love Alicia Witt.

Hate the outfit.

She’s single-handedly making Law & Order: Criminal Intent watchable again. Her character is kind of like a female Vincent D’Onofrio, except you don’t want to tear your hair out and eat it every time she shows up on the screen.

This dress, though?

Blech.

Quotables

Hugh Laurie Battles Depression

“I’m always thinking about the show. I’m too neurotic and too anal and too convinced that we’re going to fail to relax. Every show we do, every scene we shoot, is a disaster, I’m convinced of it. I go home at the end of the day and my head is full of all the mistakes I’ve made. I beat myself up about what I’ve stuffed up the day before. I’m looking for things to go wrong. I’m not rejoicing or lying back and enjoying it.”

House star and total hottie Hugh Laurie, who also says he’s battling mild depression and sees a therapist regularly.

Kanye West to Write a Book

Wish you could finally have all that Kanye wisdom without any of that annoying music?

Your wish is Kanye’s command.

The rapper will be releasing a book, Thank You and You’re Welcome!, early next year.

Kanye calls it “an entertaining volume of ‘Kanye-isms’– the creative, humorous, and insightful philosophies and anecdotes used in creating my path to success. It captures the same wit, playful irony, and piercing insight found abundant in my lyrics. In Thank You and You’re Welcome!, I deliver my personal message uncensored, without any five-second delay or media distortion.”

I smell a Nobel!

I Thought I Was Over Adam Duritz

I know I said I’d moved on after this picture surfaced, but, dammit, when I read about him running around town with Ivanka Freakin’ Trump, that little green monster just comes right out. Look, I may not want him anymore, but you certainly can’t have him, Ivanka.

FORGETFULNESS got Ivanka Trump off the hook Friday night, when the exhausted heiress was coaxed by friends to hit East Village staple Black & White – but wasn’t let in because she didn’t have her ID. “She had Adam Duritz in tow, they were all at a birthday party together,” said our spy. When the Counting Crows frontman couldn’t convince the bouncer to let her in, Trump gratefully went home. She told Page Six she was glad for the excuse: “It was fine. I had no particular interest in going anyway.”

That’s right, ‘Vanki. Go on home.

Mine. Mine. Mine. Mine. Mine.
