Shameless Self-Promotion

Posted by mipplet on Tue, 12/01/2009 - 15:27
Let's see, Tiger Woods may have cheated on his wife with a bunch of women, Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal may or may not be on the outs, along with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie...what else is new? I'm just not feeling the celebrity sympathy this week, people. Their lives may be constant drama, but at least they don't have to worry about things like paying the bills, you know? Instead of focusing on the stars today, I will promote myself in this blog, or rather my cat, Calpurnia. She is fabulous, furry, and fresh-faced...more beautiful than any Hollywood screen siren out there!

Oprah's OUT, yo!

Posted by mipplet on Thu, 11/19/2009 - 20:49
The talk show queen will officially announce tomorrow that she plans to end her run on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in 2011, and at this point has no plans to move to another television platform. As excited as I am at the idea of an Oprah-free world, I am terrified that the woman will decide to go into politics, and that her millions of brainwashed minions will elect her to some high office. What do you think Oprah's next move will be?

Is that Sammy Sosa or Michael Jackson?!

Check out these photos of Sammy Sosa. Does he look a bit pastier to you than he did a few years ago? A friend of Sammy's claims the baseball star had a "skin rejuvenation" procedure. Um...whatever.

Cook County Property Tax Conspiracy (off-topic)

Posted by mipplet on Wed, 11/04/2009 - 14:58
I need to go off topic today. Instead of discussing whatever's bothering the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Kim Kardashian this week, I need to write about what's bothering ME...namely, Cook County property taxes.

Brangelina Trick-or-Treating Photo

Check out this photo of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie trick-or-treating with their four oldest kiddies over the weekend! It is totally worth clicking on the link to see Brad dressed up as a character from the show "Yo Gabba Gabba!" (Not sure what Angie is supposed to be...something undead...)

Who should play Frank Sinatra?

Posted by mipplet on Fri, 10/30/2009 - 16:46
Martin Scorsese will direct an upcoming biopic on the life of Frank Sinatra. Now the big question is, who's going to play ole' blue eyes on the big screen? Johnny Depp, George Clooney, and Leonardo DiCaprio are all said to be in the running. Who do you think should be cast in the role? Out of all of them, George is the most suave, but he's too old to play Sinatra during his younger years, as is Johnny Depp. (Sorry, guys!) Martin Scorsese loves Leo, so my guess is that he'll be the one case in the film, but can Titanic Boy sing? Hmm...I can't recall him ever singing in a film. Maybe they'll cast an unknown in the part. That would probably be best. Who would you pick to play Sinatra in a movie?

Celebrity Sperm Donors

Posted by mipplet on Tue, 10/20/2009 - 13:21
Obviously, I am a celebrity gossip junkie, but some people are taking their Hollywood obsessions to a new extreme by seeking celebrity look-alikes as their sperm donors. In addition to specifying that you want your baby daddy to have a high IQ and be a good athlete, you can also request that he has George Clooney's chiseled good looks or Mel Gibson's piercing blue eyes. How random (and freaky)!

Gov. Schwarzenegger dissed by his wife

Posted by mipplet on Thu, 10/15/2009 - 10:32
Some time ago, California Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill making it illegal for people in his state to operate a motor vehicle when talking on a cell phone without a headset. He had a rude awakening earlier this week when TMZ posted photos of his wife, Maria Shriver, breaking the law by yakking on her mobile while driving an SUV. Hilariously, Schwarzenegger responded to the news via his Twitter account, where he posted that he would take "swift action" against his wife. The Governator's office quickly issued a statement clarifying that by "swift action," Schwarzenegger simply meant that he would ask his wife not to talk on the phone while driving, not that he would terminate her. (Ba-boom-chink!)

David Letterman, office sex addict?!

Posted by mipplet on Thu, 10/01/2009 - 22:18
I'm definitely staying up to watch "The Late Show with David Letterman" tonight. Apparently Dave is going to fess up to having sexual relations with female members (plural, not singular) of his staff. He's going public with this because someone tried to extort $2 million from him in exchange for keeping this information quiet. Dave collaborated with the police, who ended up arresting the extortionist wannabe, and now he wants to set the record straight.

When did raping a child become acceptable behavior?

Posted by mipplet on Mon, 09/28/2009 - 14:42
I'm still in shock that Roman Polanski was actually arrested. I, along with the rest of the world's population, just assumed this man would get away with statutory rape forever, which made no sense to me. How is it possible that a man had sex with a 13-year-old girl, and everyone just seemed to look the other way?
