First it’s Tina Fey. Now it’s Amy Poehler. What’s Saturday Night Live coming to? I’ll remember her for a lot of things but I think one of the most hilarious roles she played was Katie Couric interviewing Sarah Palin. Whatcha think?


The Nanny For Senator!

Fran Drescher, former star of The Nanny has offered her name as a possible replacement for Hilary Clinton‘s seat in the senate, alongside Caroline Kennedy.

It’s not that far-fetched actually, as the cancer-survivor has already had a hand in politics, being recently appointed as a diplomat for U.S. health issues, where she toured Eastern Europe.

But I guess the question in everybody’s head is : Is that her real voice?

Fran thinks she shouldn’t lose her New Yorker accent (minus the nasal part), and says its part of the reason why she should be picked:

“I would hope that he’d take into consideration that I’m a beloved New Yorker who gets the New York constituents probably as good, if not better, than any of the other people being considered”

Ashley Tisdale’s New Nose

Like Jennifer Aniston,  Ashley also had good reason to get a nose job, and no, it wasn’t to shed the Jewish-American-Princess look.  It was because of a “deviated septum“, caused by a car and dance accident which caused her to have difficulty breathing.

Karl Lagerfeld’s New Muse: Amy Winehouse?


She’s not exactly the classic Chanel beauty, and the wild stories of drugs, bulimia and unsavoury partners don’t exactly fit with haute couture, but nevertheless, the SUN tabloid has said that Karl Lagerfeld‘s new muse is indeed,  pop music’s messed-up queen, Amy Winehouse. Well, he was reported to have said he liked her hair at least:

“She is a beautiful, gifted artist and I very much like her hairdo….I took it as an inspiration, because, in fact, it was also Brigitte Bardot’s hairdo in the late fifties and sixties. And now Amy has made it her own style.”


Britney Spears As Bartender? WTF?

brit.jpgAs we all know, unless you live under one of those rocks in Central Park, that Britney Spears has been ordered to be sober by a court order.

So, it translates perfectly in Britland that you are then supposed to get an application to become a bartender, right?  WTF?

While staying at the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica, Britney went downstairs to the bar area & started up a long chat with the bartender there.  Later on, Spears revealed that she wanted to do what the bartender did & thus asked for an application to tend bar at the California hotel. 

Currently the application is in the hands of the hotel’s Human Resources office, and by god let’s hope it stays just there!  Besides, I just don’t see Britney being able to tell a Cosmo from a dirty hole in the Louisiana ground…



Former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss has had something of a career move as of late.  The madam has opened up her Dirty Laundry laundromat this past weekend.

Dirty Laundry is located in Nevada, about an hour away from Las Vegas.  You’re already making plans to visit, aren’t you?

But this isn’t what is really up Fleiss’ sleeve, Heidi plans on opening up a legal brothel for the ladies out there.

“I have had maybe over 300 women ready to buy memberships and plenty of men have applied … and let me tell you ladies out there, they won’t let you down!”

“Without Viagra we couldn’t do it,” Fleiss reveals.

Her new business is reported to be up & running in about 60 days, so get ready ladies!




WTF?  After seeing Victoria Posh Beckham on the city streets getting prepared for the debut of her reality TV show, it looks like the wife of soccer star David Beckham is backing out of the deal.

Victoria has reportedly backed out of the reality TV show with NBC which was to cover the family’s move from the UK to the States.

According to reports, the diva soccer wife is saying that family comes before fame.   

A source was quoted as saying that “the TV series was a great launchpad for her career … but she felt she was being pushed into a corner and David was obviously always going to take priority.”

Ummm, so, Posh can’t have her own job, I mean besides the one where she walks the streets with nipples blaring?



“People like Bono, Angelina Jolie and Nicole Kidman have inspired me to put my celebrity to good use. I have the advantage of reaching multiple generations to make a difference.”

“I am really excited, but also a little nervous about this much responsibility – it is an actual job. There are responsibilities and commitments that I must make to be the voice of dolphins, whales and conservation issues, and the expectations are quite large.

“Everyone loves dolphins. Yet, we are still driving them to extinction.”

Paris Hilton is a woman of follow-through.  Just hours after her 45-day sentencing for driving with a suspended license, Hilton fired her publicist Elliot Mintz. 

Mintz released the following statement:

“The day after the hearing, I sent an e-mail expressing my sadness over the ruling of the judge and the irrational sentence he imposed. In that e-mail I also offered my sincerest apology for any misunderstanding she received from me regarding the terms of her probation. To the extent that I have miscommunicated information I received from her attorneys……I am deeply and profoundly sorry. I told her that I assume personal responsibility for my part in this matter.

I believe when stated in court that she believed it was o.k. for her to drive under certain circumstances she was being absolutely truthful. Due to this misunderstanding, I am no longer representing Paris. For the record, I have nothing but love and respect for Paris and her family. Paris is a wonderful person and does not deserve the punishment that was handed down by the court. I only wish her my best.”

Well, is seems like it can’t be that difficult to manage Hilton’s life, right?  Paris, call me!
