Express Checkout: In sickness, health and death

  • Does anyone care that Rosie O'Donnell's kids can't watch TV or use the computer? I mean, I would love it if Rosie herself was restricted from those activities, but really, that detail from her recent Today Show interview wasn't the thing that stood out for me. It was the fact that she wants all the attention about celebrity mental illness to be on her and not Britney Spears or Brooke Shields. I think if you removed "about celebrity mental illness" from the above statement, you'd be closer to her real motivations.

  • Did you hear that Ashlee Simpson isn't Pregnant? Turns out she was just lip syncing. *rimshot*

  • Farewell, New Line Cinema. You contribution to grindhouse cinema and midnight movies in the 1970's, nor your legacy in horror in the 1980's will not be forgotten. Oh, and I am sure someone somewhere will remember those movies with the barefooted little people carrying a piece of jewelry across a continent in the middle of a fantastic war for three films as well. I don't know who would remember such a trilogy, but I am sure that it had its fans.

Pfffbwwaaahahahahahhahahahahahahaa

OK I am glad I wasn't drinking anything before reading this. The post needs a "no hot beverages while reading"-sign

I’d give good money to make Rosie stop blogging or at least video blogging. That doesn’t surprise me about her children being turned away from media devices. She’s one of these people that take things to the extreme to make a statement. And, when she makes a stupid statement, she makes sure everyone listens…even when we don’t want to.

I’m not sure who hates her more, you or me.

I think I kinda missed something here...but don't want to catch up ;)

I would like to find a way to keep ME from SEEING her on television.

Someone needs to tell the 15-minute police that Rosie is way over her limit.

Dutchy: It was the Ashlee Simpson joke, wasn't it?

Semaj: I would pay for a pay-per-view event that pitted Rosie O'Donnell and Bill O'Reilly in a match to the death.

Arjan: Yeah, maybe it is better if you don't get everything here ;)

Megan: I think people have tried and failed on numerous occasions.

Fab: I hear they are working on something for Tivo to do that.

It bothers me, that's for sure.

Suzanne Somers' kids used to have to fly coach while she flew first class. She said it was because, during the height of Three's Company's success(?), she didn't want them to turn into overprivileged Hollywood brats.

MC said...

D.Prince: Which part?

Tuffy: Part of me thinks she wanted to be in First Class without the distraction of her kids...

Oh man I'm really sad about the news regarding New Line, I have fond memories of the logo at the front of the early Nightmare on Elm St films.

A little like full moon - I miss Jack Deth!

Makes me sort of wonder if another independent company will take their place in the market.
