Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, January 19, 2007

"I'm a fiend for Mojitos," - Colin Farrell, "Miami Vice"

The ice has finally melted in Austin, which means it's time for delayed business trips and work in general, but before all of that reality sets in, let's examine some of the truly important stories in the world.

Lindsey Lohan finally entered rehab this week.

Yawn. Wake me up and remind me to care when she falls off the wagon again, flashes her crotch and falls over drunk at a party and breaks something. Those were the days, eh?

The Golden Globes are always a good time, but Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz reportedly didn't get fully into the spirit of things. Diaz supposedly stalked Justin like a wounded hyena and at an after-party got into a screaming match after catching him talking to Jessica Biel.

In a Diaz-Biel brawl, my money is squarely on Jessica and I would be rooting for her too as Diaz generally annoys the hell out of me.

In other Globes news, "Grey's Anatomy" star Isaiah Washington issued the following statement after he followed up some offensive language on the set with the same exact thing at the awards show.

"I apologize to T.R., my colleagues, the fans of the show and especially the lesbian and gay community for using a word that is unacceptable in any context or circumstance. By repeating the word Monday night, I marred what should have been a perfect night for everyone who works on 'Grey's Anatomy."

Let's see if he's fired or checks himself into rehab first as my advice would be don't use the word fag unless you're talking about a cigarrette in Europe.

Moving to something that is surprising, Tara Reid actually looked decent while lounging around recently on a beach in Australia.

It's been a long, hard road for Reid, but she seems to have hit bottom and is actually starting to claw her way out of the gutter. We'll see how long that lasts as "Taradaise" is still stuck in my mind on an endless and horrifying loop.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell was sentenced to five days of menial work for throwing her cell phone at her former maid after the supermodel suspected her hired help of pilfering a pair of designer jeans.

Her maid needed 4 stitches to close the wound on her head.

I think 5 days is too light for Campbell who has a history of treating her employees with an Iron Fist - literally - and a far better punishment would have been for Campbell to be the maid for a month and allow her former employee to assume the role of taskmaster.

Fair is fair.

The hits just keep on coming for Britney Spears who was vying for a spot on an all- star NFL Network promo to air during the Feb. 4 Super Bowl Game.

The New York Daily News, quoted a source told the singer's camp no because Spears is "too much of a train wreck. Besides, we already have Paris Hilton."

Ouch. When you've dropped behind Paris on the totem pole of celebrity taste and class then might as well be underground you've slid so far.

But let's stop that downward spiral right now, and end on a high swirly note of color and class:

There's a thaw in the air and a kaleidoscope of harmony in my heart, so with that in mind, stay warm and . . . Happy Friday!

  15. What a week! It is very sad when someone Lindsay Lohan's age has to go into rehab (and I mean anyone her age). Still, it has to be even worse when everyone is watching what you are doing.

  17. Thanks for the pic of Foxx and Farrell, yum! I say Lohan lasts 2 weeks in "rehab", tho it sounds like what we common folk call "vacation". Spears vs Hilton and Hilton wins?? Yow, the girl is on a long slow slope. Or Paris has something I just don't get .... Don't you just love Friday ?!?!

  18. Nobich - Snow is better than ice and Happy Friday.

    Miss Ash - That was actually semi-funny by Justin as him and Prince has a mini-feud over who brought sexy back or if it ever left. Ha.

    Jlee - Thanks & I like Mojitos & I think they are a manly drink and way better than a Cosmo. Way better.

    Sarcastic - It's vaguely silly considering she's not even 21 yet, but when you grow up in the spotlight it's bound to warp you somewhat. I don't think her parents have helped much either.

    Linda - I do love Fridays, and it even makes me feel a little bad that Britney has slid so far so fast. But just a little. Ha.

  20. diaz looked horrible at the globes.

  21. She did. She looked liked a taller version of that ugly Bjork Swan dress of years ago. With more ruffles or something and less dead swan.
