17Uh, I Think Gary Dourdan Was High When He Wrote His Official Statement Apologizing for His Drug Bust

I’m serious.

This dude needs a publicist, stat.

He actually used the phrase “LOL” in his statement apologizing for the fact that he was busted last week with heroin, cocaine and ecstasy.

LOL.

Says Gary:

Obviously I certainly wish I hadn’t been responsible for so many people getting to the festival’s VIP area. And the after party, it ran me ragged, but I’m glad pulling over did prevent a DUI. I recommend not driving at all, but a little kip (nap) is always good (on either side of the road LOL). I am blessed that the Sgt. realized that the luggage carrying whatever they found was not mine and that my tests have been coming back negative. I’ve been happy to cooperate in any way to clear myself and go on with my blessed life. I am so sorry to all my fans, especially the young ones, like Taylor Swift, who I should’ve been supporting with my daughter instead of driving tired in the desert. I am planning events to get the word out that you don’t need a bunch of nasty chemicals to have a good time. Just good friends, family, good music and a good honest spirit full of faith.

OMG.

He’s especially sorry to Taylor Swift?

He was sooooo loaded when he wrote this. It’s Lindsay Lohan’s “adequite” all over again.

Loves it.

13Hollywood Races to Erase MS

Tons of celebs showed up for the 15th Annual Race To Erase MS benefit in Century City.

Here’s Tara Reid, who’s actually looking decent these days and seems to be staying out of trouble. Which is extra impressive when you consider that she doesn’t actually have any work to distract her from her partying.

Jump inside for more pictures from this event, including Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, Ali Landry, Kelly Hu, Andrea Bowen, Anne Heche, Daisy Fuentes, Emmy Rossum, Garcelle Beauvais, Jillian Barberie, Julianne Hough, Keisha Whitaker, Lisa Rinna and Shannon Elizabeth.

19Amy Winehouse: Yup, Still Going to Die Soon

So Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson were supposed to be in the studio recording the theme track to the new James Bond flick, The Quantum of Solace (to quote Lisa Simpson: “I know those words …”), but it never quite happened.

Said Mark: “We tried to work for a little bit. I’m not sure she’s ready to work on music yet.” Hottie Mark also adds that the track will, quite frankly, probably never get made “unless by some miracle of science it gets recorded and someone sings a vocal on it.”

Um, well, yeah, Mark, that’s basically the miracle of science that results in the immaculate conception of all tracks. But I think what Mark’s saying is “There is no fucking way Amy is going to pull her shit together enough to actually record a song in the studio. Maybe if we, uh, built a small studio into the corner of a bar? That might work.”

Oh, Amy. Get it together, girl.

10Britney’s Heading Down South

Britney Spears and Father Jamie Go to the Bank, Pictures, Photos

I guess it has been brought to Britney Spears’ attention that her little sister is pregnant.

She’s reportedly in Louisiana this weekend — with Papa Spears dutifully in tow — for Jamie Lynn’s baby shower.

Hopefully she’ll be back in LA in time for her May 6 custody hearing. I really want her to show up for it.

19Fun with YouTube: Robyn, “Handle Me”

So I’ve been hearing about this Robyn chick FOREVER now, and finally a couple days ago I was like, “Okay, fuck it, let’s hear this damn album.”

I brought it up on Rhapsody and have been listening to it for a couple days now. At first I was like, “This isn’t bad, but I don’t really see what the big fuss is about.” But I’ve listened to the album all the way through five or six times now, and I’m starting to get it. It’s a pretty dope album.

Above find the video for my fave song on it, “Handle Me.”

5Leslie Jordan Has a Memoir Out

Yeah … you know who I’m talking about: He played Beverly Leslie, Karen’s 4-foot-11 nemesis on Will & Grace. He’s just published a memoir, called My Trip Down the Pink Carpet. In it, the self-proclaimed “gayest man in the world” talks about his experiences in Hollywood.

“Dean Cain was stunning, and the sight of him strutting about in his Superman outfit was truly magnificent,” Jordan gushes, recalling his cameo on “Lois and Clark.” “I showed up on the set determined not to ‘­peter-gaze,’ or at least not to get caught at it.”

He became obsessed with Billy Bob Thornton while filming “Hearts Afire” after co-star John Ritter hinted to him about the size of Thornton’s manhood.

Ritter explained that he’d gone surfing with Thornton and later hit the showers. Ritter told Jordan the sight of Thornton’s “rope” would cause him to “fall in love.”

Jordan laments that he never got the chance: “There are probably a lot of things I’ll go a lifetime without seeing – the Mona Lisa, the Taj Mahal, the pyramids. And I’ll probably never see Billy Bob’s wiener, either.”

Ah ha ha ha ha ha!

Maybe now we can all understand what Angelina Jolie was doing with Billy Bob.

About a year ago, I had the opportunity to hear Leslie speak at an event in LA, and I have to tell you that I have never laughed so hard in my whole life. My stomach hurt afterward. I, for one, am going to get this book ASAP.
