I haven’t slept in like 36 hours.
I’m taking a nap before I start thinking the photos on WireImage are talking to me.

Aw, this is really sad.
After 19 years of marriage, Robin Williams’ wife, Marsha Garces Williams, has filed for divorce from the funnyman, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple have two children together: daughter Zelda, 18, and son Cody, 16.
I just think this really sucks. I like Robin Williams a lot, and he’s just had a really crappy string of years. His career’s tanking, he put in a stay in rehab, and now this? Some years are just like that, I guess. Just bad years. But it’s just disappointing to see a Hollywood marriage last this long and then fall apart. Does anyone stay married anymore? Ever? And why am I all like, “Dude, I have to get married ASAP if I ever want to be happy!” When the evidence points so very clearly to the fact that marriage almost never makes anyone at all happy? Why do we still live in a society that successfully pressures young women to engage in this ancient custom that has, today, virtually no meaning outside the scope of the law and even less sanctity? And why are we wasting so much time trying to prevent gay men and women from participating in the same empty gesture of legal paper-shuffling? Sorry, I didn’t sleep well last night, so today you guys get random disaffected musings on society from me. Enjoy.
I wish all the best to them both.

Rocker Richie Sambora was arrested around 11 pm last night for DUI. He failed numerous sobriety tests, was thrown in jail, and released around 4 am today.
The passenger in his car?
10-year-old daughter Ava, whose mom is Heather Locklear.
Sigh. Sigh. Sigh.
Back to rehab for you, buddy. Either before or after Heather assumes full custody.

I am sincerely proud to live in a society where there is no longer any such thing as fifteen minutes of fame.
In today’s media culture, once you’re awarded the fifteen minutes, you can have as many more as you want, and I think that’s fantastic. It makes everything so much more interesting.
Here’s Paris Hilton’s former boy-toy, Pizza Boy Alex Vaggo, leaving S Bar in Hollywood with an unidentified blonde hottie. Can anyone ID this girl? She looks familiar, but I can’t place her. Maybe she just looks like every other girl on the Strip, I dunno. But she’s cute and I like the way she dresses. I should make her famous. Bloggers can do that now, right? (Did everyone catch the MSNBC clip where Perez Hilton takes 100% of the credit for launching Amy Winehouse’s career? Yeah. This girl is my Amy Winehouse. Let’s find out who she is and I will personally see to it that she wins five Grammys next year. Someone have her call me.)
Why are the photo agencies still snapping pictures of this guy? He’s, like, 18 boyfriends ago for Paris.
I don’t know! But I LOVE it!

“If there were a part that was appropriate, I don’t think we’d hesitate to go with somebody like that. I worked with Britney twice at SNL and she was very professional and nice.”
You guys, the momentum is building.
The real Britney comeback is beginning.
Can you hear it rumbling in the distance?
I’m so excited!

Word on the street is that Miz Tyra Banks is getting a little tired of baby-sitting 18-year-old drama queens from Middle America all day, and she wants to ditch her post on America’s Next Top Model to focus her energies on her talk show.
She’s also reportedly feuding with Jay Manuel.
â€œItâ€™s gotten so bad that Tyra and Jay arenâ€™t speaking,â€ says an insider. Um … doesn’t Tyra Banks executive produce Top Model? And doesn’t Jay Manuel not executive produce Top Model? It seems that if they were feuding, Tyra wouldn’t be the one to go. I call bullshit on this part of the story.
Continues the source: â€œTyra barely interacts with the contestants and only wants to show up on judging day.”
Dude, can you blame her? Do you want to interact with the contestants of America’s Next Top Model? I mean, except for in a sex way? It’s become painfully, almost comically, clear over the years that this show is a farce when it comes to producing actual top models. The most famous of the show’s graduates is Adrienne Curry, who went on to the fame and success of marrying a Brady and scoring a spot on not one but two additional reality TV shows. If I were Tyra, I, too, would be a little bored of trying to keep a straight face while teaching these girls how to tilt their chins just so, a skill which will certainly come in handy when they return to their jobs at the K-Mart in Tuscaloosa.
Says another source: â€œSheâ€™s really throwing all her weight behind her talk show. Sheâ€™s putting lots of pressure on her staff to keep her show on the map. She had Barack Obama on, she had Hilary Clinton on â€” she got a taste of playing with the big boys and now â€˜Top Modelâ€™ seems to detract from her big plans.â€
Tyra had no comment on the story. She’s ignoring the whole thing, hoping that this little 10-cycle career misstep doesn’t interfere with her plans to moderate the 2012 Presidential debates.
