Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, February 15, 2008

"Now he said, "Sic'em, Boy", but what I heard was, "Chopper, sic balls!" - Wil Wheaton, "Stand by Me"

Now that was a phenomenal coming-of-age movie, but today, I'm less concerned with adolescent shenanigans and more focused on adult worries like making money, staying away from injury and avoiding paternity suits. Then again, it's Friday, so all those concerns can fall by the wayside, and we'll focus on celebrity stories from the week such as:

Britney Spears is reportedly preparing to embark on a new world tour as the recently hospitalized pop star is planning to take her recent album, "Blackout," international, according to the New York Post.

"Britney will be leaving the country in the next few weeks, after training in privacy for a month. She is planning a global tour," a source close to the pop star told the Post.

The tour is tentatively being called "Increasing Crazy On A Global Scale."
Paris' little brother, Barron Hilton, 18, was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving early Tuesday morning, although there are reports that he might also be charged with Reckless driving, Operating to endanger, and Vehicular assault.

The latter charges stems from an allegation that Barron struck a garage worker at a 76 Gas Station in Malibu after drunkenly pulling in. The worker, Fernando Pellez, was not seriously hurt, but he insisted on calling the cops.

"I was knocked to the ground," Pellez claims. "The Mercedes lost control as it was turning into the gas station and Barron got out of the car and he was totally drunk and couldn't walk straight."

After being released, Hilton released a statement saying he was "unsure whether he was more embarrassed about the arrest or simply being known as "Paris Hilton's brother" in the press."

A screenwriter has sued Mel Gibson and his production company, claiming he was misled by the actor-director into accepting a small payment for writing "The Passion of the Christ," and was refused extra money when the film became a blockbuster.

The screenwriter, Benedict Fitzgerald, also claims that Gibson promised him that he wouldn't receive any money from the film and any profit would be distributed to people who worked on it. Gibson stated he didn't want "money on the back of what he considered a personal gift to his (Roman Catholic) faith," the lawsuit said.

In a related story, the Lord Thy God has filed suit against Benedict Fitzgerald for plagiarism.

Rapper The Game was sentenced Monday to 60 days in jail after pleading no contest to felony possession of a firearm in a school zone. Two other counts were dismissed under a plea agreement, the district attorney's office said.

The 28-year-old entertainer was accused of pulling a gun on a player from an opposing team during a pickup game at a South Los Angeles school nearly a year ago.

In handing down the verdict, the presiding Judge reminded the Game that "it seems ironic that you would forget that basketball is just a Game, which is why I don't feel bad about sentencing you to jail time."

Dolly Parton's breasts appear to have caused the singer, 62, to postpone her upcoming North American tour after doctors told her to take it easy for six to eight weeks to rest her sore back.

"Hey, you try wagging these puppies around a while and see if you don't have back problems," said Parton.

The last time I tried wagging Parton's puppies around I was banned from Dollyland forever.

Billy Ray Cyrus says he and his daughter, "Hannah Montana" actress Miley Cyrus, simply forgot to buckle up for one of their scenes in their new hit movie, "Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert." The gaffe was noticed and called out by Consumer Reports magazine.

"We got caught up in the moment of filming, and we made a mistake and forgot to buckle our seat belts," the country music star said Wednesday on People magazine's Web site. "Seat belt safety is extremely important."

While Cyrus repeatedly discussed feeling bad about the seat belt issue, he offered no apologies for "Achy Breaky Heart."

But let's not end with law-breaking, and instead, focus on the positive like this:

I often like to sit half-naked in a see-through chair to collect my thoughts for the day, which sometimes causes problems with my HR department at work.

So, pick your spots to undress today, think deeply on the state of the universe and . . . Happy Friday!



  1. Gotta love that, err, umm, chair. Yeah, the chair.

    Seeing that pic of Britney in the little black thing makes me wonder something. When women get up on stage barely dressed, do they get cold. They're in a big open room with high ceilings. I'm mean, sure, a little draught of air can certainly make them perky, but could it not give them shivers or goosebumps or something?

  2. Heff Says:
  3. God Bless Dolly Parton. May her spine find strength from the Mighty Heavens above....

  4. You'd think the Lord Thy God wouldn't have to result to lawsuits. You'd think He could just take care of things with a massive bolt of lightning, or an earthquake or something.

  5. WhatIgot - Good question. I doubt it as they are usually dancing/gyrating/etc. and those lights get pretty hot from what I've read. Then again, I've never done it so don't take my word as the truth in this matter.

    Heff - I agree. She's a fine American and a role model.

    Native Minnow - The Lord doesn't like to use his really top-flight powers for lowly Hollywood types - a lawsuit will do just fine. But i would still watch out for lightening if I were them.

  6. Heff Says:
  7. 2Dollar - to back you up, AND help answer whatigotsofar's question - No, half naked people don't get cold on stage. Stage lighting is EXTREMELY hot. A few short minutes, and they'll make a sweaty mess out of anyone - Even someone as "together" as Britney, lol.

  8. idobcool Says:
  9. 'Stand By Me' is such a great movie, I used to know every line. How could I forget to add that to my list of favorites?

  10. Heff - I knew it. Thanks for the backing it up with first-person experience as you should know. No wonder everybody sweats like hell under them.

    Idobcool - Me too. I had forgotten, and recently bought it on DVD. So many great lines as "a pile of shit has a thousand eyes" is another I remember.

  11. Miss Ash Says:
  12. I didn't even know that Paris had a brother.....

    Stand by Me was such a great movie "Pez cherry flavoured Pez, no question about it." I think i'll watch it this weekend!

  13. Mr. DNA Says:
  14. Speaking of 80s movies...

    Is it just me, or does the Hilton look kinda like Anthony Michael Hall circa 16 Candles?

    And who names their kid Barron?
    Was his nickname Red as a little kid?
    Was his room decorated with Snoopy?

    ... and scene.

  15. Miss Ash - Me neither, and I should know these things. Ha. And yes, I was thinking the same thing about Stand by Me. Great flick. Good Novella too.

    Mr. DNA - I like the visuals, and I thought of the Red Barron thing when I heard as well. But I neglected Snoopy. Finally, you're right about the AMH connection as they have that same face that almost looks like it could cry easily if given the opportunity (though I liked Hall in many 80s flicks).

  16. Linda Says:
  17. You find the best photos, that shot of Dolly is fantastic! I never looked at train tracks the same after seeing Stand By Me, awesome flick! Happy Friday!

  18. I went out with a girl who knew Stand By Me line for line.

    What a second... I just read Idobcool's comment. Idobcool, email me if your name is Dida and you use to have a raging drug addiction.

  19. OH Mr. DNA is right on the money with the Anthony Michael Hall comment... of course I love the added tears of sadness for Little Richie Rich.


    I'm late, but still.... Happy Friday and Weekend 2$!

    I'm a Dolly fan too, but for different reasons.

  20. vivavavoom Says:
  21. where did you get my office bio pic from? back probs for don't say?! an underage Hilton drinking and, but $ missed the pic of Gary Coleman and his new bride....who apparently deflowered him.
    have a blossoming weekend!

  22. Linda - I'm right with you on the train tracks as they seemed much scarier afterwards. As for Dolly, she usually puts a fair amount of effort into herself for public events, so this was relatively easy. Happy Friday to you.

    Idig - If that happens, then there better be a post. Ha. But then again, that's a side benefit of $2 Dollar productions - bringing old flames back together through storms of drugs and 80s flicks. Why the hell not?

    Anonymous Boxer - Dolly also has a great voice. There, I said it. Ha. She also has a good sense of humor too. Finally, have a great weekend yourself.

    Vivavavoom - I know. I saw that story too, and it was too disturbing for me to post about. Ha. Actually, I went out last night and had no time (I also wanted to mention Bai Ling's shoplifting, but . . .). As for yr. office pic, I never reveal my sources.

  23. Gypsy Says:
  24. After being released, Hilton released a statement saying he was "unsure whether he was more embarrassed about the arrest or simply being known as "Paris Hilton's brother" in the press."

    Hands down being called Paris Hilton's brother. There isn't anything more embarrassing than that with the possible exception of being Britney's brother or sister for that matter.

    Love Dolly Parton. She has a sensational sense of humour and the ability to laugh at herself. A rarety indeed in la la land.

  25. Gypsy - Agreed about Parton as she just seems like a fun person to be around on several levels. As for the worse sibling, I think right now, it would be Spears, although it's a close call and really depends on the week.
