Quick Hit Friday . . .

"You look like a doily," - Ethan Hawke, "Reality Bites"

It seems like it's been rather slow in Hollywood this week, but I suppose these things happen as you can only have so many Britney melt-downs, so many Anna Nicole stories, and so many stars checking into rehab. Then again:

Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers, currently starring in Showtime's "The Tudors," checked into rehab for alcohol abuse this week.

His representative, Meredith O'Sullivan said "After a non-stop succession of filming, Jonathan Rhys Meyers has entered an alcohol-treatment program."

I suppose it's good to have someone check into rehab BEFORE saying/doing something amazingly stupid, but the rationale still seems lame because I work a succession of many days every single year and it has yet to drive me to seek help.

Beauty queen Shanna Moakler has infuriated Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan after she posted their contact details on her MySpace page.

In a related story, I have been hanging out at a pay phone by the local 7-11 for hours on end this week making calls. Many, many calls.

When not sparring with the bloated toad known as Karl Rove, singer Sheryl Crow also made a case for using only one square of toilet paper when you go to the bathroom to help save the planet.

I think we all would like to help the Planet here and there, but when it comes to the Earth or wiping my own ass, it's really not much of a decision at all. Recycling my newspapers is an entirely different matter.

Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons said Monday that the recording and broadcast industries should consistently ban three racial and sexist epithets from all so-called clean versions of rap songs and the airwaves.

Expressing concern about the "growing public outrage" over the use of such words in rap lyrics, Simmons said the words "b**ch," "h*" and "n**ger" should be considered "extreme curse words."

We'll see if this gains any traction as I foresee many problems, but in response, the Country Music Association is looking into banning any song with words like "cheating," "trains" or "getting drunk" in them which will leave tons of dead airtime to fill.

Rosie O'Donnell will leave "The View" TV show when her contract expires in June, ABC announced Wednesday.

I guess Rosie told ABC execs that they could "have a nice View of her giant behind" as she walked out the door after the sides couldn't come to terms on a new contract.

In the midst of serving a 35-day jail sentence in Florida on contempt -of-court charges and fresh off a federal indictment on multiple counts of bribery and tax evasion, Joe Francis, the Girls Gone Wild mastermind, just got himself another legal headache as prosecutors charged him with misdemeanor sexual battery.

According to his 18-year-old female accuser, Francis approached her at the swanky party and touched her breasts, buttocks and inner thighs, despite her repeated protests for him to stop.

The two things that surprise me about this include: 1) What was Francis doing at a swanky party in the first place 2) The girl was actually 18.

Hugh Grant has been arrested for allegedly throwing a container of baked beans at a photographer, London police said.

The Metropolitan Police don't identify suspects who haven't been charged, but said a 46-year-old man was arrested Wednesday night on suspicion of assault and released on bail. No charges have been filed, police said.

The photographer said Grant became very angry after being snapped eating a giant bowl full of beans, and after hurling the fiber-dense side dish, Grant pushed him roughly to the ground and pinned his arms while blowing farts onto his cheat for half an hour prior to the police showing up.

As ugly as that image is, let's end with a better one:

Since it's the end of week, get everything off your chest and let nothing weigh you down and . . . Happy Friday!



  1. Carmel Says:
  2. Throwing baked beans at a photographer lol, sometimes they deserve it.
    You like that last image? I don't know, I am surprised her skin is holding those things up.
    Have a nice weekend!!

  3. JLee Says:
  4. Man, I wish I ran a rehab place...I'd be cleaning up right now! Some of these places should install revolving door, for crying out loud.

    I'm with you on the TP thing. I don't think that's the downfall of our planet by any means.

    Lastly, that poor woman in the photo. What a horrible birth defect to have to deal with! I wonder if she gets the handicapped parking spaces?

  5. Carmel - Yeah, I can't say I blame Grant at all. And that last image is more freakish than nice, but I would like to talk to that woman to find out the story behind them. Ha.

    Jlee - Rehab is where the money is at these days & as an upstanding citizen if that woman doesn't receive special parking I would escort her inside places to make sure their/her safety was ensured.

  7. I knew a girl with boobs like that her sister had them too. yikes!! they ate pasta everyday for dinner- pasta with chicken, pasta with steak, pasta with fish, pasta with pasta, etc. you get the drift. I stayed with them for a couple of weeks one summer I left with a "B" cup as opposed to the double A I had when I got there. woohoo!!

  8. I was doing just fine, enjoying the "trash talk", until I got to the last image.

    Why, why, why.

  9. Nobich - Then this girl must have eaten pasta all day long. I have to admit, I've never heard that theory before, but you should consider writing a book about it - it would move some copies.

    Anonymous Boxer - Sometimes you shouldn't ask why, just stand back and bask in things. Ha.

  10. Miss Ash Says:
  11. JRM.....hmmmm I stopped reading after I saw that photo. I had to take care of a little something ;)

  12. Maybe you should ship yourself to rehab . . . they can help with any addiction Miss Ash.

  13. It has to be a huge relief for Barbara Walters. If you read between the lines you can tell that basically she was fired - they just used better language.

    I think the funnier part of the Sheryl Crow toilet paper thing is now she says it is a joke. I guess somebody caught her using 2 squares when only 1 was mandated.

  14. Linda Says:
  15. Nice Friday post for me. Myers, Grant and Hawke big faves of mine. Talented, hot and every once in a while, tabloid worthy. Love it when the guys act up! Happy Friday!!!!

  16. I knew this girl once, every time she finished using the bathroom she'd plug the toilet with wads of paper (especially after pee). When I went in the bathroom and lifted the lid to unplug the toilet, it'd looked like she'd ripped and thrown every page of Ulysses in the bowl.

  17. My only question is how the hell can you use only one square of toilet paper???!!!

    Ok, one more question....What's up with those big ass breasteses!!!

  18. Sarcastic - Ha. Yeah, I read the Crow then said she was joking - let's hope so because there's no way that would fly.

    Linda - Happy Friday & I'm glad you got a good personal trio for you as I actually like them as well (in varying degrees).

    Idig - I know exactly what you mean here, and no matter how many times I asked/pleaded for an explanation, I never received a good one.

    Trina - 1) It's impossible to use only one square - utter bullshit. 2) That's a good question and I'd like to find out for myself.
