Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, June 06, 2008

"The things you own, end up owning you," - Brad Pitt, "Fight Club"

There's probably some truth to that statement, however, I have little interest in owning anything except my own free time today, which will begin about 3:30 pm CST if I can get my work done and bolt out the office doors like greased lightening. But before that can happen, let's look at the tough stories of the week such as:

Tatum O'Neal was due to be arraigned in New York City Monday after police arrested her for allegedly buying crack cocaine near her home.

Police charged Paper Moon Oscar winner, 44, with criminal possession of a controlled substance. The New York Post reported that O'Neal is said to have told officers, "You know who I am, right?" She also claimed she was "researching a part – I'm doing this for a part as a junkie."

I wish O'Neal good luck with that excuse as mine didn't work two weeks ago when I told Austin police that I was "working on my method acting for the part of a fire hose" - they still issued me a ticket for urinating in a dark alley near Sixth Street.

Hulk Hogan's son - Nick Bollea - requested alterations to his jail sentence, but was denied removal from solitary confinement at the Pinellas County Jail in Largo, Florida.

The 17-year-old is currently in solitary confinement at Pinellas County Jail after pleading guilty to a charge of dangerous driving involving serious bodily injury.

The judge said that releasing Nick Bollea into the general inmate population would only result in dangerous wrestling matches which weren't faked "like your Dad and the Iron Sheik."

A spokesman for Kelsey Grammer says the "Frasier" star is recovering in a Hawaii hospital after a mild heart attack this weekend. Stan Rosenfield says Grammer is "resting comfortably" after the actor was stricken with the attack while paddle-boarding with his wife, Camille.

I'm glad Grammar is doing well, but he was definitely motor-boating his wife Camile, not "paddle-boarding" as that sounds closer to the truth.

Rosie O'Donnell told Howard Stern this week that she finds her former "View" co-host and sparring partner Elisabeth Hasselbeck "very attractive."

"Were you not attracted to Elisabeth Hasselbeck?" Stern asked. "When you look at her physically, you don't want her?" "See, the 'want' is the big thing," O'Donnell responded, suggesting she doesn't desire Hasselbeck. "I find her very attractive. She's very attractive, I think."

I think - check that, I know - that I'm going to be a little sick.

The backlash in China against Sharon Stone continued Wednesday as the Shanghai International Film Festival said the American actress was not welcome at this year's event.

The 50-year-old "Basic Instinct" star provoked outrage in China after suggesting the recent earthquake in central Sichuan province may have been the result of bad "karma" because of Beijing's rule in Tibet.

The festival might claim it was Stone's tasteless remarks about the earthquake, however, I think it was due to her participation in "Basic Instinct 2" that caused the invitation to be rescinded.

Ed McMahon, the longtime sidekick to U.S. talk show host Johnny Carson, is fighting to save his multimillion dollar Beverly Hills home from foreclosure, McMahon's spokesman said on Wednesday.

According to public records, McMahon was then about $644,000 in arrears on the mortgage for the six-bedroom, five-bathroom home in an exclusive area of Beverly Hills.

Hopefully, McMahon can work something out with the bank or he'll be loudly proclaiming "Heeeeeeeeere's Bankruptcy" soon enough.

Per usual, let's end on a high note:

I rarely crawl myself, however, I might get down on all fours to play this game. So, stay low to the ground today, know that it's OK to get dirty and . . . Happy Friday!



  1. Gypsy Says:
  2. I stayed up way past my bedtime for this B and wonder if it's embarrassing to admit that quick Hit Friday is currently the highlight of my week. I probably shouldn't have said that out loud should I?

    Say what you like about Sharon Stone but you've got to hand it to her...she still looks pretty HOT for a 50 year old.

    As usual great parting pic. I personally don't mind getting down and dirty on my hands and knees either but hell I've never looked like that while doing it. I probably shouldn't have said that out loud either should I?

  3. Heff Says:
  4. I hope Tatum is soon "researching a part as an inmate".

    Hulk Hogan faked his wrestling matches ? Oh, the Humanity !!!

    You beat me fair and square to the "motor-boating" joke. Damn, she fine !

    I think Rosie O'Donnell could be the one to finally put an end to the somewhat recent outbreak of celebrity porn videos. "Everything's Cumin' Up Rosie" would be a barnburner !

    Doesn't Sharon Stone provoke outrage Everywhere ?!?

    Ed McMahon should look on the bright side - He could win that Publishers Clearinghouse thing....

    As of 4:30pm today, I'll be pretty low to the ground my damn self !

    Have a good one, 2Dollar !

  5. Tatum O'Neal also said she was driven to falling off the wagon because her dog died, which I thought put a whole new spin on the "hair of the dog". Even so, the news made me sad when I heard it. Made worse by having Danny Bonaduce interviewed on The Today to give his "insight" into her addiction problems. I think I'd rather think Rosie thinks I'm attractive..

    No. That's wrong. I rather have Danny Bonduce discuss my drug problems.

    Either way, as usual you and your "dirty" pictures always begin my Fridays.

    Have a great weekend.

  6. Gypsy - I hope it was worth it as it seemed like a slightly slow week in Hollywood. Ha. But I appreciate it, and anything is worth saying around here. You are right about Sharon as she still looks damn good, and hell, nobody knows how they look on hands and knees unless someone takes your picture like this woman.

    Heff - I appreciate the detail here, and sorry about the motor boat theft as it was the only thing I could think of and it came immediately to mind. I'm not certain on Hogan so don't take it to heart (especially his matches against Andre the Giant), good to hear your 4:30 plans match mine & let's never mention that Rosie thing again. Ouch. Ha. Enjoy the weekend.

    Anonymous Boxer - I saw that about the dog. That's a new excuse, and I'm chuckling about the hair of the dog, which is an expression I've always liked and always love puns. And if the pics start the day, then I hope it starts it off right as I know it helps me as I sip coffee. Ha. Have a great weekend.

  7. Wendy Says:
  8. Oh, crap--I've written about ten things in this space and erased them all. You addressed everything perfectly. I guess I can only say that I feel bad about Tatum O'Neal because she's around my age and she's fucked up her life so badly. Then again, it kind of makes me feel better about my own--which I guess is why we're so fascinated by celebrity misbehavior.

  9. Miss Ash Says:
  10. I don't even remember what I was going to say....that last photo threw me way off!

  11. BostonPobble Says:
  12. Ah $$, it's nice to have you back. Did you hear Stone has apologized *again* ~ only her apology is starting to sound snarky. I do love it when celebrities screw up and then get pissed off when people are actually upset about it.

  13. nobich Says:
  14. Well $2 we've been lost without you- good to have you back

  15. Wendy - I think that theory on celebs is a definite truism (sp?, word?), and there is definitely a line between fun wreckage and watching someone really screw up their life. On the plus side, most celebs get more second chances than the average person.

    Miss Ash - It can have that effect. Ha. You might consider some similar strategy for another beach volleyball tournament. Just remember who gave you the tip.

    Bostonpobble - I do too. It's funny how they want to people to hang on every word, and then when they are called on some of the more inane comments, it can turn ugly in a hurry. Stone will be apologizing to the Far East until the cows come home and it won't matter a lick.

    Nobich - Thank you as it felt strange to stop collecting these tidbits throughout the week to post on Friday. Happy Friday.

  16. Claire Says:
  17. Heh. I love QHF!


  18. grace Says:
  19. I'm usually quite up-to-date on celebrity gossip, but I don't think I'd heard any of these stories before reading them in your post just now... you're way ahead of me this week.

    That last pic is hot, but still, there just seems to be something missing... oh I know, a man. Come on, give us a pic of a guy next week! Pretty please :)

  20. Andrew Says:
  21. I just watched Fight Club.. like yesterday. That movie owns everything.

  22. Claire - I'm glad as I enjoy writing it. Luckily, there should be an endless supply of things to fill it too. Ha.

    Grace - This week was semi-random, so don't feel too badly and I like to spread knowledge anyway. As for the last pic, I make no promises, however, I will keep the request in mind. Just not at the forefront. Ha.

    Andrew - It's a hell of a good movie. I own it on DVD, and watched it a few weeks ago for the first time in awhile. It holds up well & you have to admire it.

  23. Linda Says:
  24. Ahhhh Fight Club, #8 on my personal top 10. Looking forward to The Hulk for another look at Norton on screen, love him. And the celebs just keep acting stupid. Glad to have your weekly recap back! Happy Friday (on Saturday).... Film Festival week, woo hoo!!

  25. Like most people here, I'm just happy that 'Quick Hit Friday' is back

  26. Linda - I bet you're having a good time at the festival. I'm also a fan of Norton's, although I'm not entirely sold on the Hulk because that CGI Hulk just looks silly to me. As for Fight Club, Meat Loaf was also surprisingly good in that film. Hope the rest of yr. weekend went well.

    Native Minnow - Thanks as QHF could go on and on as there is enough material provided each week to ensure that, a fact that may or may not be a good thing for society. Ha.

  27. JLee Says:
  28. Great stuff and the last image almost erased the horrible image of Rosie in my mind. Almost. ACK

  29. Thanks & it's hard to fully erase that image. Ha. It might never happen.
