Celebrity Turkeys

--Not even first daughter Barbara Bush is safe from thieves in Buenos Aires. The twin had her purse and cellphone stolen while she dined in a restaurant in the Argentine capital, even though she was being guarded by a Secret Service team, ABC News reports. It wasn't the only mishap on the two-week trip to Argentina by Barbara and her sister, Jenna. A Secret Service agent on the advance detail got into an "altercation" with someone after a night out and was badly beaten, according to police reports.


--R.I.P. Robert Altman. (A Praire Home Companion will probably do really well now...even though he cast L.Lo in it).

--ScarJo is no more.

--Education Secretary Margaret Spellings says she studied hard to prepare for Tuesday night's airing of "Celebrity Jeopardy!" "I didn't want to be the education secretary who didn't know how to spell potato," Spellings joked, describing how she read books and sought advice from a former show contender and her daughters. In the end, Spellings said she thinks the effort was worth it. She came in second behind the actor Michael McKean, best known for his role as 'Lenny' on the television show "Laverne and Shirley" and for the movie "This Is Spinal Tap." Placing third was actor Hill Harper, from the television show "CSI: NY."

--Jessica Simpson and John Mayer are giving their relationship another chance.. Friends of the couple confirm they are spending time together and taking things slowly. A source close to Mayer tells American publication People, "They're fond of each other. There's a flirtation." A Simpson source adds they are "enjoying each other's company and seeing how things go. There's no title to their relationship." On Saturday Simpson and Mayer were spotted in Los Angeles and have become regulars at Paradise Cove Cafe in Malibu. They became friends in June when they ran into each other at a New York City nightclub.

--L. Lo *hearts* Donna Karan.

--Nicole Richie is cleaning out her closet by axing her personal stylist (and close confidante) of more than two years, Rachel Zoe. The reason? The size-0 Richie, 25, wanted to surround herself with positive people and influences, an insider says. Apparently that didnt include the controversial fashionista, 35, who has long been accused of promoting unhealthy body images (her roster of stick-thin clients includes Mischa Barton and Lindsay Lohan, both 20). Nicole didnt trust Rachel anymore, a Richie pal says of the firing. Zoe didnt take the news well.

--Idina Menzel, you'd better watch your man. Taye Diggs, who married his "Rent" co-star in 2003, was spotted "cheek to cheek" with Ashlee Simpson at G Spa last week. They took tequila shots and were intimately whispering and intertwining arms for a half hour. A rep for Simpson says she and Diggs are "just friends."

--Brit and K-Fed say there is no sex tape. (I'm not buying it. As Iceman said regarding this issue, "I bet she paid him off." Exactly. Thanks for the tip, Iceman).

--To paraphrase Paris Hilton: thats not hot. The partying heiress was performing in Las Vegas, when she puked on stage, according to crooner Joshua Radin. Radin was visiting Vegas with the cast of Scrubs and went to a nightclub to hear Jay-Z perform. Paris Hilton was sitting next to me the whole night. Seriously, next to me, like our legs were touching for a good 5 hours, Radin wrote on his MySpace site. Now dont get the wrong idea. She never once said hello, nor even looked in my direction. Five hours. And it was unreal to watch. She must have pulled a compact out of her bag every 6 minutes to stare at herself and pose while Jay-Z was performing 18 inches from us. When Jay-Z left the stage, according to Radin, it was Hiltons moment. Paris, who had been swilling straight vodka from [a] Grey Goose bottle for hours, gets up on stage, has the people in charge throw her record on the house stereo for her to lip sync two of her songs, writes Radin. She gets up on the stage, pukes, leaves. . . I find the music business charming.

You Said

PLEASE tell me that Taye Diggs is a) a better man than one who would cheat on his beautiful and talented wife or at least would b) have better taste than to cheat with Ashlee Simpson.
What is it with men cheating "down"?

Says: motown at November 22, 2006 09:59 AM

-I'm thinking there are some Secret Service guys who should be looking for work.

-The white "fur" jacket LLo is wearing is reportedly fake. Then again, maybe she is referring to her nether region.

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you've done a excellent job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!

Awesome blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely confused .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!

Nevertheless imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
