Quick Hit Friday . . .

"You're part eggplant," - Dennis Hopper, 'True Romance'

One of the best scenes in cinematic history belongs to Dennis Hopper and Christopher Walken in "True Romance," but really, Hopper had so many great films under his belt like 'Easy Rider,' 'Blue Velvet,' 'Apocalypse Now' and even 'Speed' was elevated by his presence. He will be sorely missed.

Anyway, I can't believe it's Friday as I firmly believe that all weeks should be shortened because in my mind it could only lead to better attitudes, and in the end, greater productivity. But before I leave the office by 4:30 pm, let's look at the hard stories of the week such as:

It was a slow week in Hollywood as it mainly consisted of pregnancy and divorce rumors, and first up was Céline Dion who announced that she is pregnant with twins.

The singer, 42, is pregnant after undergoing her Sixth in-vitro fertilization attempt.

The children were also conceived in the Sixth bedroom in their house with the aid of Six tablets of Viagra, so the chances that one of Dion’s children will turn out to be the Anti-Christ is quite strong.

In other singer pregnancy news, it was rumored this week that Mariah Carey is expecting her first child with husband Nick Cannon.

A source told RadarOnline that the couple are “very excited and very happy” by the news. Pregnancy rumors had dogged Carey since she was spotted outside a Los Angeles medical clinic in May.

Carey’s publicist Cindi Berger did not confirm nor deny the pregnancy, telling RadarOnline, “I’m not at liberty to discuss Mariah’s personal life at this time.”

The real question will be whether or not the baby will be able to cry louder than Carey can sing, but there will be no winners in that battle.

In yet another pregnancy story, Los Angeles Lakers player Lamar Odom denied reports that his wife - Khloe Kardashian - is expecting a child.

"I can't confirm that," he told ESPN on Wednesday "I don’t think so." ESPN noted he was smiling while he said this.

If this is true, then I guess Odom put it in the Hole without too much Dribbling. Ouch.

Sarah Ferguson told Oprah Winfrey on her show this week that she had been drinking and was "not in my right place" when she was recently caught on video offering access to her former husband, Prince Andrew, for $724,000.

The Duchess of York apologized for her lapse of judgment and has said she had financial problems.

She apparently also has drinking and bribery problems because she's absolutely terrible at both of them.

Al and Tipper Gore announced this week that they are separating after 40 years of marriage.

"After a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate," the Gores wrote in an e-mail to friends. "This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together."

The Tipping point came one night after Gore drunkenly accused Tipper of contributing to global warming, and she snidely whispered: "We both you know you didn't really invent the Internet."

In other divorce news, it was rumored this week that reality stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are having problems and that Heidi has moved out of their house.

"I needed some alone time," Montag told "There are so many lies out there about me and I just needed space – even away from my husband."

The glaring problem is the camera crew that Montag brought along with her to film during her “alone time.”

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

It's definitely hot enough to crave the water in Austin, and other cravings aren't half bad either. So, stay cool as the summer descends, don't be afraid to get a little wet and . . . Happy Friday!


{R.I.P. Hopper, Rue McClanahan, and Gary Coleman}


  1. Heff Says:

    I never got in to Hopper, although I must admit, I never saw ANY of the films he was famous for. Saw him in a few "stinkers" though.

    Thank goodness Céline Dion IS pregnant. Maybe it'll keep her from performing for awhile.

    It's probably Nick Cannon that's gonna be crying. At least for 9 months or so...

    I'll bet Khloe Kardashian IS pregnant, and that's JUST WHAT WE NEED - possibly MORE bimbos on the E! channel.

    Is Sarah Ferguson still legitimately considered the Dutchess of York ? I can never keep my royalty straight....

    LOOKOUT LADIES, Al "Mr. Charisma" Gore is gonna be single !!!

    Oh, PLEASE let "Speidi" break up, because that would be the ABSOLUTE END of Spencer Pratt for everyone !

    And in closing, thanks for the visual. I'll be jumping in the Cream O' Heff Pool(tm) soon enough !

    Have a good one, BDS.

  3. Dennis Hopper just HAD to go and steal Gary Coleman's thunder, didn't he?

    Celine Dion is the new Octomom.

    I wonder if Mariah Carey will hit the high notes in the delivery room.

    What exactly are the Kardashians famous for again?

    So Sarah Ferguson is guilty of bribery. My question is, who would pay that much money for access to the Prince?

    Tipper Gore just finally had enough about how "we have to stop ManBearPig."

    Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag split up? There's a shocker.

    I'm digging the gold images, as always.

  4. Miss Ash Says:
  5. I still can't figure out WHO Dennis Hopper is....though I have seen Speed and clearly am trying to erase it from my memory!

    As for Fergie that was an odd interview and she didn't really answer much of anything if you ask me.

  6. nobich Says:
  7. Did you know that supposedly Dennis Hopper was in "Rebel without A Cause"? I had no clue but that's the claim.. (he played one of kids) well Happy Friday!!

  8. BostonPobble Says:
  9. Thank you for remembering Hopper was in Blue Velvet. It's one of my favorites but it seems most people have forgotten it was even made. Of course, it's a little ... dark ... for many so maybe that's why. Still, thanks.

    And the news of the Gores' split made me oddly sad. They'd always seemed pretty good together.

    Have a great weekend, $$.

  10. wigsf Says:
  11. I don't want les quebecois to reproduce. There I said it. That means you Celine!

  12. Linda Says:
  13. That scene has been the most popular Hopper scene referenced since his passing. Such a great film! Easy Rider will always be my favorite piece of his. Recent Hopper film worth seeing? Elegy. Realized how much I don't care about the Gores when they announced their separation. Batting for Lohan in the crazy box? Fergie. "I was drunk" is no excuse at her age. I feel for her daughters. Have a great weekend and Happy Friday!

  14. Heff - First & bringing the detail, so . . . Hopper was always a weird and interesting presence in films and yeah he did make some bad ones too but even in those he was always interesting to watch. I hope that keeps Dion off the road, Cannon is laughing because he's got a sugar mama, ha, E! wouldn't exist w/out bimbos and hair gel, I am in the dark on the royalty thing myself, Gore is going to be at the club every night, I hope Pratt falls into a volcano or something even more painful, and enjoy the fruits of Heff's labor w/ the pool. Happy Friday Heff.

    Native Minnow - Always appreciate the detail, and Coleman is probably cursing in the afterlife, I don't know who I like less - Dion or Octomom, Carey will probably be sedated to avoid that scenario, no idea except a lot of people want to Keep Up w/ them I guess, no kidding - what does that kind of money buy you exactly?, must be 'Inconvenient Truth' reference?, shocking indeed & glad you liked the images. Happy Friday Minnow.

    Miss Ash - Seriously? A film icon . . . you should really check out the films I mentioned or do a quick Google search on him. And I forgot you watch Oprah some, and I figured the interview wasn't too exciting. Ferguson is just desparate - end of story. Happy Friday Miss Ash.

    Nobich - Strangely enough, I did know that for some reason. Crazy, eh? Thanks for sharing though & Happy Friday to you.

    BostonPobble - Dark and weird and excellent was 'Velvet.' I haven't seen it in a long while . . . and I think a lot of people felt the same way about Gore because I figure it's a little disturbing that 40 years just went down the toilet. It's a bit sobering. Happy Friday Pobble.

    WIGSF - I was hoping you or Miss Ash would comment on Dion as Canadians. Ha. Happy Friday WIGSF.

    Linda - Great, great call w/ 'Elegy.' He was really good in that one. Understated too. Fergie just seems to be in a very bad way - expensive habits and no source of income. Something has to give . . . Happy Friday Linda.

  15. Wendy Says:
  16. What bugs me about celebrity pregnancies is that each one is the ONLY PERSON EVER TO HAVE A BABY. As if no one else--especially nonfamous folk--has ever done so. Speaking of which, I am unofficially announcing that I will be a grandma at the end of October. THE ONLY GRANDMA EVER.

  17. JLee Says:
  18. I don't think I've ever seen "True Romance". Will have to check that out. The rest of the stuff I don't give two shits about. lol That water looks so inviting, especially since we're hitting triple digits this weekend. UG I need to find a friend with a damn pool.

    Have a good weekend!

  19. 雅婷 Says:
  20. Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm...................................................

  21. Wendy - Ha & congratulations. That is very cool & I bet you're excited about the latter, eh? As for the first point, yeah, I always laugh at that kind of thing w/ celebs, but a heightened sense of self importance just seems to come w/ the gig. Happy Belated Friday Wendy.

    Jlee - You should find a friend w/ access to a boat and water immediately. It's a moral imperative. Ha. I need to do the same. And yes, go rent 'True Romance' as it is an excellent flick. Happy Belated Friday Jlee.

  22. ManBearPig is a South Park reference. If you haven't seen that episode, you absolutely must. You could probably find it at

  23. I just wanted to say that I'm SO pissed off at Nebraska. PISSED.

    PAC 10? Are you kidding me. I spit at that idea. NO. I'm not ok with this idea.

    Best case scenario, boot the Nebraska Cornfuckers, and bring in BYU. I can't live without the Big XII. I might just die.

    TX is holding all the cards. Gawd, I hope they don't go. What are you hearing in Austin? Are you as pissed off as I am?

  24. Virtue dwells not in the tongue but in the heart. ............................................................

  25. Native Minnow - Thanks as I had absolutely no idea. I am more than a little ignorant on 'South Park' stuff, but will check it out. Appreciate the information.

    Kymical Reactions - Me too. Cornhuskers could never handle UT holding the big stick in the Big 12 and Osbourne finally did something about it. Sucks. I think it's a done deal - unfortunately. TX, TX Tech, OK, OK State to the Pac division along w/ Colorado. Nebraska and Missouri to Big 10. Lame. I don't like these super conferences at all. Lame. Bullshit. Sorry. Wish I had better news . . . really do.

    Eunice - You'll get no argument from me. Thanks for stopping by . . .
