Quick Hit Friday . . .

“I’m looking for a dare to be great situation,” – John Cusack, ‘Say Anything’

It’s really too bad that Cusack has gone from great material like ‘Say Anything’ to the upcoming ‘Hot Tub Time Machine,’ which I recently saw a preview for on basic cable. Oh well, we all have bills to pay.

I plan to be far from great today, and instead, will settle for mildly capable if the situation presents itself. But before I leave the office by 3 p.m., let’s look at the hard stories of the week such as:

Lindsay Lohan said in an interview this week that ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson is the only woman for her – and if she doesn't reunite with the celebrity deejay, then Lohan would date men once again.

"I never really thought about women before, it kind of just happened with Samantha. It surprised me," Lohan told the U.K. Sun tabloid. She added, "If I wasn't with Samantha, I would probably be with a boy next.”

Some might say that Ronson could pass for a 18-year-old boy herself, so Lohan has already had the best of both worlds. Or the worst.

Charlie Sheen's wife, Brooke Mueller, pulled out of a Malibu, California rehab center after a "major breach of her privacy," her lawyer told CNN Monday.

Mueller immediately checked into "a private, secure facility" to continue her substance abuse rehab so she can be "the best mother" to her children, attorney Yale Galanter said. He also said that he was planning a lawsuit against the Canyon -- the rehab center -- after confidential details of her treatment were given to journalists over the weekend.

"I am going to make them pay like you can't believe for screwing over my client," Galanter said. "You can quote me on that."

Only I’m allowed to screw over my client, and I get a hefty fee for that very purpose, Galatner added.

In a related story, Charlie Sheen checked himself into rehab on for substance abuse issues. Seriously.

The "Two and a Half Men" star forced a surprise halt on production of the series. "We wish him nothing but the best as he deals with this personal matter," said a statement attributed to CBS, Warner Bros. and executive producer Chuck Lorre.

The actor's spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, described his client's decision to enter rehab as a "preventative measure" and added he would "take some time off" from the series.

The first question Sheen was asked in rehab was: “Why are you here?” and he responded with “Drugs,” thus completing his full circle turn with his ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ character.

Playgirl magazine offered NFL player and former dog-fighting felon Michael Vick one million dollars to pose nude for the magazine.

The magazine would donate the money to the animal-activists group PETA -- if he agrees to a pictorial. Playgirl spokesman Daniel Nardicio told Life and Style magazine: "I sent the request to Michael Vick on Wednesday. But we haven't heard back yet. I figured he paid back society for dog fighting, but what about the animals?

She added, we just want to see Vick’s bone during the shoot, and that “no doggie-style action would be required – this isn’t Hustler magazine.”

Jennifer Lopez split with her longtime music label, Sony Music, this week and then announced that she has a new deal, rumored to be with Def Jam, who would release her comeback album, ‘Love?’ this summer.

"I am making this statement to put an end to any confusion in regards to my next album, titled Love?" Lopez said, according to Billboard. "I have belonged to the Sony family since the beginning of my career as a singer and together we've had great success. I have fulfilled my contractual responsibilities with Sony/Epic up to this point, and we have both reached friendly terms about my departure from the label. “

Sony is happy because it retained the rights to J Lo’s ass while Def Jam will only possess her singing ability under terms of the new deal.

Fans in Australia walked out of a Whitney Houston concert Wednesday night as her voice was apparently in poor shape.

Bernadette Latta, whose son bought her the tickets as a Christmas gift, said: "It's terrible. I have never walked out before a concert finished but that was just terrible. I'll be suggesting my son tries to get a refund."

It didn’t help when Houston started her concert by announcing “I Will Always Love You, New Zealand.”

Steven Tyler reconciled with the band Aerosmith this week after months of public squabbles where the band auditioned new lead singers and Tyler went to rehab.

But now, the group announced Thursday that they will undergo a summer tour of Europe called “Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock.”

Tyler spent his entire time away from the band coming up with that touring title.

As always, let’s end with a gold image or three:

Obviously I’ve been misbehaving this week, and feel the subconscious need for a reckoning. So, let the punishment fit the crime today, try to keep things tidy and . . . Happy Friday!



  1. Miss Ash Says:
  2. You beat me to it, I was going to mention that Sam looks like a boy anyway sooooooo..... really dating an acutal boy is not going to be a far stretch for Ms. Lohan.

    Hmm after seeing those photos I feel like misbehaving as well....

    Happy Friday!

  3. JLee Says:
  4. "mildly capable" is what I always strive for and usually achieve. ha
    I agree with you on the Ronson "worst of both worlds"
    I also agree with Miss Ash on the photos.... ;)
    (of course I warmed her up with my poetry. ha)

  5. Miss Ash - I've thought that about Ronson forever. If you're going to be with a woman, why not make it a good-looking woman, Lindsay? Oh well . . . glad you liked the pics as some weeks are better than others. Happy Friday Miss Ash.

    Jlee - Mildly capable is a fine thing to shoot for on occasion. Keep the goal realistic I always say, and glad you liked the images, although I will retain full credit. Ha. Happy Friday Jlee.

  6. TROLL Y2K Says:
  7. Didn't Ray Liotta follow-up "Goodfellas" with "Operation Dumbo Drop"?

    My sources tell me that Lohan is already involved with a Jack and a Jenny. (*)

    Celebritard libtard drug-abuse is less amusing when you learn that they've procreated. Actually, it's scary when some of the ones who aren't on drugs procreate too.

    First and last time I saw J-Lo (mentor on American Idol) she looked good, sang well, was pleasant and intelligent, and her ass seemed normal sized to me.

    New Zealand. Grrherhahahahaha. Remember Julie Brown's "Madonna" and her tour of the Pahillapeens?
    Gosh, I'm old.

    (*) Jacks and Jennies are donkeys.
    Samantha Ronson could pass for either.

  8. Heff Says:

    Well, I guess that ruins any possibility of a Lindsay Lohan/Gianna Michaels video in the future. A Heff can dream.

    As far as Sheen, "The couple that rehabs together...."

    Is Playgirl prepare to add the extra centerfold page to accomodate Michael Vick's dogbone ? I'm just sayin....

    Jennifer Lopez LEAVING Sony ? Damn, they're TRULY going to lose their "ass" now.

    "Houston, WE HAVE A PROBLEM !"

    Washed up Aerosmith's new tour should probably be called "Loaded, Bloated, and ready to Shock". I came up with that in 2 seconds...

    And in closing, TRY NOT TO TAKE AN ASS WHUPPIN' before heading out !

    Have a Great Weekend BDS.

    Sorry about lockin' up your computer, dude !

  10. Troll - Appreciate the detail, and especially for the donkey explanation. Ha. Ronson just is not good-looking in any way, shape or form - human or animal. Liotta did do something horrible like that, and I remember 'Dumbo Drop' even if I didn't see it. I can buy everything about J Lo except - can she really sing? Maybe so. In general, she seems fairly reasonable, much more so than Charlie Sheen & Spouse. I vaguely, vaguely, recall the Julie Brown story. I think. Will have to do some digging on the Net today. Happy Friday Troll.

    Heff - First, congrats again on getting back up on yr. own site, and appreciate the detail . . . So, I wouldn't rule that out entirely and Gianna is great in my book, the Sheen/Mueller thing is just kind of ridiculous and sad, I kept trying to come up with more dog/bone references w/ Vick but couldn't, should have thought of the Houston pun, should have, yr. Aerosmith tour is far more accurate, and I am confident I can hold my own this weekend. Maybe. Ha. Happy Friday Heff & apology accepted.

  11. TROLL Y2K Says:
  12. 2 bucks,

    I'm no expert. "First and last". I'd just heard she was a total bitch, a moron, had a mutant-large ass, had no musical talent etc...

    At my "first and last" exposure to J-Lo World, she was charming, had a good voice and a great ear, was well-spoken, and her ass didn't seem THAT big. Big, but not horrific.

  13. wigsf Says:
  14. in regards to hot tub time machine, i understand we all have to work and all have bills to pay, but is gay porn really the way to go. can't john cusack just find another awful romcom to make a couple of bucks.

  15. If Cusack hasn't saved up since Better Off Dead, he needs to be spanked. There can be no excuse for lameness from an established celebrity unless it is mismanagement of funds or boredom.
    Except for Bruce Campbell. He can do no wrong.

  16. John Cusack's best role was in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. (which is on my top 5 list of fave movies ever)

    I also heard Lindsay say that she doesn't consider herself to be a lesbian, either. I suppose the fact Sam R resembles a boy would give her reason to believe that. weirdo.

    Charlie schmarlie. What about the other Two and a Half Men news that Jon Crier's exwife has hired hit men to take him out!!! I know it's Hollywood, but that ain't no movie!

    I can't even comment on MV. What I had to say was just a little to vulgar. even for me.

    Now, I didn't realize JLo was still making music. I thought she was just into making movies. and babies.

    I think someone must have forgotten to let Whitney know that the crack will destroy vocal cords. I mean, really. Who around her is blowin smoke up her ass telling her she still sounds good. She needs a run in with Simon Cowell.

    I'm convinced this whole Steven Tyler and Joe Perry set up this whole girl fight to promote this "new tour." Steven said he auditioned for the lead, and won. yeah. and I'm a natural blonde. I'm over publicity stunts.

    Butt seriously, you know I love a nice ass. I'm just gonna pretend those golden images were just for me. :)

  17. Boxer Says:
  18. Cusack did not suck in 2012, although the movie did. Still, it was nice to see him a blockbuster.

  19. What I wouldn't give to walk into my room to find that French maid cleaning up just like that

  20. BostonPobble Says:
  21. Wait...J Lo still has a music contract anywhere? Wow.

    And the pics are great. Of course, it makes me wish someone would misbehave, rather than wanting to misbehave myself, but that's me. >:)

  22. Troll Y2K - Thanks for the clarification. I think J Lo has gotten a bit more mature or reasonable over the years as she seemed like a monster diva when she first got popular with a butt to match, which regardless, I always liked . . .

    WIGSF - The previews for 'Hot Tub' look really, really bad to me. And you'll get another mediocre rom-com from Cusack soon enough. Happy Friday.

    Getoffmylawn - 'Dead' was another classic Cusack role from the 80s, and I own it on DVD. Campbell is pretty damn good himself. It's too bad he's not in more things . . . Happy Friday.

    Kymical Reactions - Appreciate the detail as always, so I forgot Cusack was in 'Evil,' Lohan is just so messed up it's hard to take anything she says w/ any amount of seriousness, what's this crazy business w/ Jon Cryer (?), vulgarity is always welcomed around here - we don't judge, ha, J Lo doesn't seem to do much at all the last few years, I think I saw that Houston still smokes cigs and that is hurting her voice (the crack already did it's damage), and I try to spread the love around w/ the golden images. Ha. Happy Friday.

    Boxer - I put '2012' on Blu Ray in my Netflix queque last week, and I'm really trying to decide if I want to keep it there. Ha. Happy Friday.

    Native Minnow - I know, and I wouldn't even mind that nothing really seemed to be getting cleaned via her job duties. Ha. Happy Friday.

    Bostonpobble - I know. I had no idea about J Lo either, and am not sure exactly who is clamoring for another album . . . and we've all got our own side of the line to come down on when it comes to misbehaving. Ha. Happy Friday Pobble.

  23. Linda Says:
  24. Computer's been a hot mess, sorry I missed you on Friday. Speaking of hot messes, nice to see Lohan back in the fold. Man, she's looking rough these days. Booze and pills don't look so good on her. Hope you had a good weekend!

  25. Linda - No worries as I hate when my computer rebels on me. Ha. Lohan is a hot mess, although give here a few more years and she will just be a mess. Happy Friday.
