George Michael, well since you all already know...

LONDON - First Sir Elton John announced he would tie the knot with his longtime partner, David Furnish, when Britain's new law creating civil unions goes into effect Dec. 21.
Now singer George Michael, once half of the pop duo Wham!, says he and Kenny Goss will make it legal.
The pair have been together for about 10 years.

Nice, I remember when this guy was first arrested in the bathroom for attempting to have sex with a cop that he went WAY overboard giving interviews assuring people that all of his romantic songs from his past years with Wham and his solo Career were written about women. Nice to see he's finally dealt with himself at the ripe age of 100, I'm sure his boyfriend wouldn't have appriciated being made to disguise himself as a woman at that wedding.

The NYTimes, no doom and gloom? Then create some!

Sales of New Homes Stay Strong in October, Setting Record
Gasoline is cheaper than it was before Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans. Consumer confidence jumped last month and new home sales hit a record. The stock market has been rising. Even the nation's beleaguered factories appear to be headed for a happy holiday season.
By most measures, the economy appears to be doing just fine. No, scratch that, it appears to be booming.
But as always with the United States economy, it is not quite that simple.
Consumer confidence is bouncing back from what was arguably some of its worst readings in years. Gasoline prices-the national average is now $2.15, according to the Energy Information Administration- have fallen because higher prices tamped down demand and supplies in the Gulf Coast have been slowly restored. The latest read on home sales, released today, contradicts virtually every other recent measure of housing activity that generally indicate a slowdown. And yes, manufacturers' fortunes are on the mend, but few besides airplane makers are celebrating.
It all means that the economy is likely to end the year with a splash, but that does not mean the broad economic picture next year will be even better.
Many analysts...believe a housing slowdown is already under way. Along with rising interest rates and anemic job growth, any such drop-off could sap the economy next year - by just how much is still subject to debate.

OK, so lets look at this, a housing slowdown...hmm, well over 7 million units were sold in the recent market and real estate specialists used to be excited about 6 million, so lets say a slowdown occures and only 6.2 million are sold, that is still a historic high. Anemic Job Growth? Hey, it's still GROWTH!, unlike Job losses in a recession or after 911. Thanks NYTimes, I'll just take my news straight next time, save the ridiculous insertions

Could explain that dramatic weight loss

BRITTANY Murphy has been dropped by her manager, Joanne Collonna, and her agents at ICM. Rumors abounded yesterday, but cited a nasty, not-so-blind item in Ted Casablancas' column on E!online, which claimed a "smacked out" actress named "Jordache Junky" (Murphy has recently starred in the Jordache jeans commercials) had sex with a waiter at an industry bar mitzvah. A rep for Murphy, who has been helping her mother deal with cancer, said, "Brittany is making a transition in her representation and has parted ways amicably with Brillstein-Grey and ICM. Not the other way around. The blind item on E!online is not Brittany."

Hmm, a company drops an actress that is making them money.....add that to the fact that wel...she just looks freaky and strung out and weighs about 80 pounds. I'm not saying she's a junky whore, I'm just saying she looks like the corner of Smack blvd. and Whore St. in Downtown Baltimore.

The King of Pop's New Clothes?

A Tunisian woman was shocked to find Michael Jackson was the man in the mirror of a shopping mall ladies room in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Although the U.S. pop star was wearing an Arabic woman's head scarf, Dubai police said he probably made "an innocent mistake" in using the wrong facility while shopping Saturday, the Khaleej Times reported.
Dubai Police Col. Abdul Jalil Mehdi did not comment on Jackson's choice of head-wear -- the traditional Emerati women's scarf known as "Sheila," the New York Daily News said Tuesday.
The Tunisian woman at first screamed when she saw a man in the ladies' room, but as soon as she realized it was the King of Pop, she pulled out her cell phone camera and started snapping away, the Times said.
The two started arguing when she told Jackson she wanted "compensation" for the pictures, which attracted the attention of nearby police.
No citations were issued, but police told the woman demanding money for her photos was illegal and the pictures were erased.
Jackson has been seen in women's clothing at other times in that same mall, he had been there once previous to the visit with the "Bathroom incident"
According to an Australian shop worker, there was no doubt that Jackson went to the mall before.
"It was definitely him," she said. She claimed Jackson was wearing an abaya (a long robe that covers the whole body) along with the traditional woman's headscarf during the visit.

Ok, can we say it all together? Michael Jackson wears womens clothes. Why does nobody seem to point out that a long flowing wig, lipstick, eyeliner, false eyelashes etc... are all signs that he is either a transvestite or a really bad drag queen? So now he moves to another country and goes right for the traditional womens clothes in THAT culture. The guys doesn't waste any time.

IT's good to be famous

PAris Hilton and her boyfriend had a nice little car accident in the wee hours of yesterday morning. Paris and her current shipping-heir boyfriend, Stavros Niarchos, were coming out of an L.A. nightclub when a pack of paparazzi fell upon them.
Behind the wheel of a Bentley and desperate to avoid photogs, Niarchos pulled a jacket over his head and stepped on the gas, only to slam the gleaming sedan into a truck.
A video, obtained by, also shows the car narrowly missing a bystander.
Later, the video shows cops pulling over the damaged car, which also contained Kimberly Stewart and "Laguna Beach" star Talan Torriero.
On the tape, Talan is heard telling police "I'm the only sober one, let's just go." After the cops had sent them on their merry way, Paris blew the officers a kiss, saying: "We love the police."
An LAPD spokeswoman said no police report was filed and didn't know whether cops gave anyone in the car a Breathalyzer test.

You're kidding right? The guy pulls a jacket over his head, steps on the gas, hits some other car, THEN another person in the car tells the police that everybody in there but her is drunk, and yet they let them all go?!!? WTF!?

Cats link to schizophrenia??

Pregnent women, already warned to stay away from cats because of the reisk of Toxoplasmosis, now are being told that that condition can lead to schizophrenia later in the life of their children. Studies also show that a much higher percentage of people with schizophrenia had cats as children.

Crazy Cat Ladies everywhere dispute the studies findings.

Courage under...sluts?

GIs coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan can look forward to an especially warm welcome in Carson City, Nev. The working girls at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, the city's venerable legal brothel, want to show their thanks by servicing the servicemen.
Proprietor Dennis Hof says he's prepared to foot the bill for 200 soldiers to have sex at his establishment between now and Thanksgiving.
"We used to give them turkeys," the Bunny Ranchero tells us. "I think they'll like this better."
Hof says he'll pay his girls their usual rate, having budgeted the R&R at $100,000.
The self-proclaimed Barnum of Booty was moved to extend the offer after receiving E-mails from enlisted men who see his hit HBO reality show, "Cathouse," at bases abroad.
"Every other war we fought, there were chicks everywhere," says Hof, whose show is headed for a fourth season. "Nobody's getting any in Afghanistan or Iraq."
Commanding officers may frown upon the debauchery, but Hof insists that his ladies are looking forward to the patriotic gesture.
"We're going to buy all the GIs drinks," says Hof, who gave MSNBC's Rita Cosby a ranch tour that airs tomorrow. "And I've told the girls, 'Take your time.' We're going to spoil them."

I'm not sure sending Clamydia over to Iraq will stop the insurgency.

Not that theres anything wrong with it

The cheerleaders arrested for that Tampa bathroom brawl have been booted from the Carolina Panthers squad for allegedly engaging in conduct embarrassing to the team.

In what many will likely view as a double standard since NFL stars are regularly arrested but allowed to continue playing, Renee Thomas and Angela Keathley will now have to seek another outlet for which to shake their pom-poms. The Panthers have removed any mention of the duo from the section of the team's web site. A third cheerleader, Kristen Owen, was suspended since Thomas, 20, was carrying her driver's license when popped

They were fired for embarrassing the team? What, like these outfits weren't embarrassing enough??
Also, I'm guessing that Date Rape, cocaine convictions and murder aren't as high on the list as lesbianism for embarrassing the team since that seems to be the only thing that male virginians have been able to avoid.

Study shows Wal-Mart good for workers and economy, Anti-Wal-Mart Activists change strategy, now complain about color scheme.

The "rock-bottom" pricing strategy used by retail giant Wal-Mart has filtered into the US economy and kept a lid on inflation, according to a study commissioned by the company and released.
The study by the economic research firm Global Insight concluded that the discounting along with other measures led to cumulative savings for consumers of 263 billion dollars between 1985 and 2004, or 895 dollars per person.

The researchers concluded that Wal-Mart had a positive impact on US employment, generating 210,000 jobs by 2004, or 0.15 percent more that would have existed without Wal-Mart.
The report also found that Wal-Mart's low pay for employees led to a 2.2 percent drop in overall wages across the economy but maintained that this was offset by falling consumer prices.

Oh well, guess all you activists can go back to bitching about how much Starbucks charges for a Latte. Oh, and pick me up a coffee while you're there bitches.

Barn Door Closed after the Horse has escaped

Tom Cruise has hired veteran publicist and Rogers and Cowan co-chairman Paul Bloch to handle his publicity activities, including those for Cruise-WagnerCruise-Wagner Prods.
Move replaces Cruise's sister, Lee Anne DeVette, who had been serving as his publicist since March '04, when he parted ways with longtime rep
rep, PMK/HBH's Pat KingsleyPat Kingsley.

(Although it's been said that she dumped him because he wanted to go out and talk about Scientology and she didn't want the entertainment industry to think he was acting on her suggestions)

One other thing Tom, for the first time in your life you acted the way you wanted to without somebody telling you how to behave, and guess what....nobody liked you. There, that ought to sooth your actors need for attention.

Madonna, Changing the world one Transvestite at a time

Madonna just appeared at the MTV Europe awards, She performed new single, Hung Up, by bursting from a giant glitterball wearing a purple leotard.
The 80s-style leotard was a vintage find which she topped off with £20,000 worth of diamonds on her eyelashes.Afterwards Robbie Williams - who won Best Male - said: "I can't believe she's 89 and looks like that."
Madonna's muscle-bound figure prompted show host Borat, aka comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, to say: "It was very brave of MTV to start the show with a transvestite."The award ceremony took place at Lisbon's Atlantic Pavilion.Madonna returned to the stage to present the Free Your Mind humanitarian award to her "hero" Bob Geldof for his Live 8 effort.She said: "My hero is someone who has never been afraid to speak his mind, to ruffle feathers, to get the job done, to get down in the trenches and kick some ass."I know first hand it's not always considered fashionable to work hard to make the world a better place because I've taken some s*** for that myself."

Yes, Madonna, your book Sex, and your video Open your heart made the world a much better place for Drag Queens with bleached hair and really really dark roots.

Anderson Cooper....Not that theres anything wrong with it

Aaron Brown, once one of CNN's most prominent anchors, is leaving the network after a shakeup that gives his prime-time slot to rising star Anderson Cooper and expands it to two hours.

Cooper, 38, has been gathering momentum all year that peaked with his on-the-scene coverage of Hurricane Katrina, .
"He's got a refreshing way of being the anti-anchor," A high-up in CNN says "He's not quote-unquote reporting at you. He's just being himself. He's asking the questions you would like answered. He's getting involved the way you might. You feel that he's a regular person that you can trust talking to you. He brings such a passion to the storytelling that's infectious."

I guess Being himself doesn't include coming out of the closet, but at least he isn't pretending to be in love with Tom Cruise like Rosie O'Donnel!!

Even Classier than Paris?!

The Post Reports

PARIS Hilton plaything Stavros Niarchos III is some kind of class act. After he fueled up at L.A.'s Element club the other night, the Greek shipping heir and a posse of pals stopped at Burger King. "Stavros offered a homeless man outside $100 to dump a soda on himself," a source squealed to Us Weekly. The desperate bum took the payout "and everyone laughed," reports the source. This one's a keeper, Paris!

Wonder how much he would have to pay Paris to stop doing that stupid pose where she has her mouth open, her head down trying to look flirty at the camera. God, it would be worth a ton of money to never have to see that pose again...

Hollywood rose Colored Goggles

ACTOR SEEKING DIRECTION: That was "Entourage" front man Adrian Grenier on the uptown E train the other day, expressing his skepticism about hooliganism on New York subways. "Do you know anyone who's actually been robbed of their cell phone on the train?" the Brooklyn-born Grenier scoffed to a lady friend as they shepherded a flock of small children on some sort of field trip to the upper West Side. Not that he's an authority on the matter. "Does this train go to 59th St.?" he asked a fellow straphanger. Close, but no cigar.

Heres an Idea Adrian, instead of taking the subway from one Expensive building in Manhatten to some hot club still in Manhatten, why not take the 6 line down into the Bronx and wear your nice Ipod, then you can talk about how nothing ever happens on the Subway.

Ok, this one just carcks me up.

What better night to ignite a feud than Halloween? Rapper Ice-T tossed scary insults and even a threat at reality-TV she-devil Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth during Heidi Klum's ghoulish gala.
"I'll tell you who I don't like: Omarosa," the "Law & Order: SVU" star told Lowdown as he sat upstairs at nightspot Happy Valley in - what else? - pimp regalia. "That b- is not supposed to be famous. Being somebody in the business, you have a lot of admiration for people because you know how hard they work. But certain people, you're just like, what the f- has that ho done?"
Informed that there are probably plenty of folks who agree with him, Ice - whose real name is Tracy Marrow - added ominously: "Yeah, well, I'm at the top of the list. Give me the gun."
Not exactly a breezy comment, coming from an ex-gangster. In his hip-hop days, Ice wrote the controversial song "Cop Killer" and famously ran with the Crips.
What if he and Lady O were to, um, settle their differences in the sack?
"I wouldn't wish that on a zombie," Ice-T replied stonily, rubbing the fishnet-stocking-clad leg of his generously endowed wife, Nicole (Coco) Austin.
Informed of Ice-T's attack yesterday, Omarosa immediately took the gloves off.
"Tracy sold out his rap career to go play a cop on a show because his last album tanked," the "Surreal Life" and "Apprentice" alum told Lowdown, adding that she's never even met the man.
"You're supposed to be hard-core, rapping about killing and pimpin' hos, and you go and play a cop? He sold out!" Omarosa continued. "Real hip-hop artists - the ones that are true to the art form - do not resort to playa hating."

Thats funny Omorosa, Ice never SAID he was speaking as a rapper. He said "Being somebody in the Business" i.e. show business you idiot. Wow, bitchy AND stupid, Here that fellas?! AND she's single!

50 Cent Slams West's Anti-Bush Comment

Rapper 50 CENT has lashed out at fellow hip-hop star KANYE WEST for accusing US President GEORGE W BUSH of racism in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
The IN DA CLUB star believes human intervention could not have prevented the effects of the hurricane, which killed over a thousand people in the US gulf states in August (05), and sees no point in reprimanding the President for something which was beyond his control.
He says, "The New Orleans disaster was meant to happen. It was an act of God.
"I think people responded to it the best way they can.
"What KANYE WEST was saying, I don't know where that came from."

Wow, somebody blaming nature for a hurricane instead of a politician? When did logic start to infect celebrities?!?

Wait, What did you say?!?

The rumor is floating that THAT Leonardo DiCaprio and Gisele Bundchen, after dating for several years, have called it quits for good.

My guess is that after a few years he stopped looking at her and started to listen....ouch! I can just hear it now,
Leo: Hey Gissie, I have to attend this concert to promote rainforrest awareness, what do you think? Do you want to come with me?

Giselle: I like butter

Next up on your Radio Dial! Boredom!!

HOWARD Stern is truly irreplaceable. Thirteen independent stations not owned and operated by Infinity Broadcasting have rejected the replacements lined up by Infinity for after Dec. 16, when the King of All Media, who was in 37 markets, leaves for subscriber-supported Sirius Satellite Radio. Infinity's own stations will air David Lee Roth in the East, Adam Carolla in the West and some guy named Rover in the Midwest. But the FMQB radio Web site reports that the independent stations that aired Stern's syndicated show in Las Vegas, Austin and Buffalo are going with other formats and that 10 other non-Infinity stations, including Seattle, St. Louis, Albany and Hartford, have yet to announce their post-Stern plans. "The incredibly profitable empire Howard built is being splintered, and the execs at Infinity can't keep it together," said an insider. A station manager told The Washington Post: "Stern's departure is the worst natural disaster to hit a media company in the decade . . . Even though he was only on four hours a day, many of the sponsors on his show were required to buy time through the rest of the day as a price for getting spots on the Stern show."

I bet that those execs at Infinity are kicking themselves for not litigating the new FCC guidelines. It would probably have cost them less than the money the Stern Show brought in in one week of ads.
