Big Brother is watching you: Congratulations to
Eddie, the one-legged, foul-mouthed New
Yorker that claimed the half million dollar prize from
CBS's latest reality TV show. Teen heart-throb Josh was
the runner up, claiming the $100k prize, while the third
prize of $50k went to Curtis, the always-laughing lawyer
from San Francisco. As I said from day 1, go Eddie!
That's two for two. I also picked Rich as The Survivor
week 3. Maybe I need to go work for Dionne Warwick's
Friend's Network, I could really clean up.
Jumping on the band
wagon: Melissa Etheridge and partner Julie Cypher
announced September 19 that they have ended their 12-year
relationship. They made headlines back in January when
they revealed musician David Crosby is the biological
father of their two children. Julie is expected to show
up dazed and confused in Fresno next week.
who: Former jeans spokesmodel Anna Nicole Smith
is squaring off with her stepson,
J. Howard Marshall III, in court over the estate of her
late husband, oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II. Although
she isn't in the will, Smith says she deserves a chunk of
his multimillion-dollar fortune. Marshall's son was also
omitted from the will and is seeking his cut. The Houston
trial began September 22 with jury selection and is
expected to last over two months. Good news for Smith
came on September 27th when a US Bankruptcy Court judge
awarded Smith $449 million of Marshall's $2 billion
estate. Hey, anyone willing to sleep with a 90 year old
man for over a year deserves at least a half a billion
dollars in my book. So just give it to her already!
my spear and magic helmet: Just what does one
wear to operate on a patient who has a live grenade
trapped in his right leg near the knee? Why.... body
armor and helmets of course! On September 20, doctors and
nurses in Russia performed surgery in an open field to
de-mine Junior Sargeant Andrian Chebodayev. Now, what I
really want to know is just HOW does one get a granade
trapped in their leg?
It takes Diff'rent
Strokes: The world just hasn't been the
same since the passing of Dana Plato in May of 1999. I
gave it a try, but I have decided to cancel my
subscription to The Enquirer. No other washed up
celebrities have her enormous lack of sense. You don't
see Jan Michael Vincent robbing video stores without
wearing some kind of mask to hide his famous identity.
Pay homage to Dana...
