7Something Is Missing …

For once, there’s an event without Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt!

But … it’s The Hills Season Finale party.

Why weren’t they there???

Heidi’s rep responds with two simple, yet beautiful, words: “Not invited.”

Lauren swears she has nothing to do with the guest list, but somehow I don’t believe that.

But Stephanie Pratt was there!

Very, very strange.

Oh, and all the girls there, except Audrina, were wearing the same shade of red nail polish. I hate that I notice things like that.

6I Love It When News Anchors Swear

Someone’s mic wasn’t turned off quite in time …

I remember being 11 or 12, and, since my mom was a domestic goddess and I already spent plenty of time tagging along with my dad at work, my parents always came up with women with cool jobs for me to follow around for Take Our Daughters to Work Day. One year, I got to run around a hospital with a surgeon, and she took me to watch open-heart surgery, in the actual surgery room, not in a viewing gallery or anything. I just stood there like three feet from the patient and watched open-heart surgery, as a pre-teen, which I’m sure violated any number of laws. Anyway, I remember that, as they were lasering the heart shut, it smelled just like barbeque! I couldn’t eat a hamburger for a year.

One year, I hung out at a news station with a news anchor, and they let me sit in the studio for their 6 pm broadcast. And I was completely shocked by how much these people swore once the cameras were off. Seriously, they’d be all perky and adorable on camera, and the fucking millisecond those cameras stopped rolling, they were like “What the fuck was that bullshit??? Can’t you motherfuckers get the goddamn tape cued properly?” or like “Fuckin’ Christ, our President’s a goddamn moron” or “My fucking piece of shit mic is a fucking piece of shit.” It was an endless barrage of cursing. I came home both terribly disillusioned and absolutely fascinated.

I’m surprised shit like this doesn’t happen more often.

11She Took It Off!

Oh, happy, happy, happiness!

Sarah Jessica Parker took off that ridiculous hat when she attended the SATC premiere after party.

Or maybe she didn’t voluntarily take it off. Maybe Matthew Broderick got a look at some of the photos on the AP wire and called her like, “Seriously, Sarah, I will divorce you over this.” Or maybe someone tried to shoot her in the face while screaming “You look like a foot!” and missed and hit the hat. Or maybe she just had to put it back in the vase.

Whatever the reason, I’m glad it’s gone.

6For the Love of God, Will Someone Put Leven Ramblin on Primetime Already?

The kids at Gawker point out that the gorgeous 17-year-old soap star and general NYC maker-of-trouble didn’t bother to make her MySpace page private, and it contains a variety of photos that, um, well, Miley Cyrus probably wouldn’t put on her MySpace page (unless, of course, Annie Leibovitz instructed her to).

I love this girl and I want her to be famouser.

She’s young! She’s beautiful! She’s a famewhore (a full day after Gawker discovered the photos, she still hasn’t taken them down). Plus: she’s always smoking weed!

Paris is gonna get married and be boring. Nicole Richie already is. Britney is getting sane. Lindsay’ll be dead within the year. And I just have this sinking feeling that Miley Cyrus may never develop a full-blown drug problem.

We need you, Leven!!!

11Quotables

Elizabeth Berkley to Page Six Magazine on Sunday, discussing her ill-fated role in the cinematic masterpiece that was Showgirls:

“If you just looked at it on paper, it felt like a no-brainer.” After all, the Basic Instinct team of director Paul Verhoeven and writer Joe Eszterhas had just made Sharon Stone a household name. Her only concerns at the time were simple, she says. “I thought, ‘Do I feel comfortable with this director? Do I feel like I will be protected in this?’ Those things all felt like ‘yes’ prior to filming. After filming, I can’t say I felt that way.” Because there, of course, is when the media skewered the movie, unanimously crowning it the year’s worst film.

“I think that was the part where I felt let down. I didn’t feel like any of the filmmakers had my back when it came up — at all. Nobody stood up and said a word when the media was being so mean.” She was all of 20 at the time. The actress says she took the Showgirls fallout on her own, promoting the film single-handedly when the other players backed out. “I didn’t want to run away and hide. It was a nasty moment, but I found out what I was made of, I’ll tell you that for sure.”

Translation: At first she was excited. And then she was so scared.

Aw, Elizabeth. Think of it this way: if that movie had been even marginally decent, it wouldn’t be playing on cable TV all the fucking time today. Seriously, sometimes when I just need a good laugh, I’m like, “Hm, I wonder who’s playing Showgirls with awkward digital bras painted on today?” And someone always is.

26New Miley Cyrus Single: “7 Things”

Good God.

I like it.

I am totally a 12-year-old girl trapped in the sexually frustrated body of a 26-year-old woman. It’s unfortunate.
