  • She'd Rather Be Hit By A Train

    Posted by Lori Moore

    Madonna paid a visit to David Letterman last night. They chatted about her recent divorce from Guy Richie. She said she was married for 8 years - "the Bush years...a good time to be out of America". When Letterman asked if she had any plans to get married again, she said she "would rather be run over by a train."

    Sarah Palin's upcoming book is already a best -seller two months before its release. "Going Rogue:An American Life" has grabbed the #1 spot on both Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble's best-seller lists.

    Actor Randy Quaid and his wife are scheduled to appear before a Callifornia court later this month. They sort of forgot to pay a $10,000 bill at the San Ysidro Ranch. They call it a big misunderstanding. Good thing I have an understanding with Motel 6.

  • Kate Plus 8 Minus Jon

    Posted by Lori Moore

    Whoops! TLC is taking Jon out of the mix of their formerly popular show about a family with a brood of 8. The TLC prez says that they are trying to "evolve with the changing family dynamic". Starting in November we will enjoy "Kate Plus 8" without having to worry if one of daddy's many girlfriends will show up to play Legos.

    Ouch. Dan Rather has lost his lawsuit war with CBS. A New York appeals court has thrown out his $70 million lawsuit. Rather claims he was made a scapegoat for a 2004 report questioning then-president Bush's military record.

    Mackenzie Phillips is going to rehash her lurid life on "Larry King" tonight. eeeeew. At what point do her tales of incest cease to be about "helping other victims" and become about selling books?
