R.I.P. Nora Ephron

Because if I tell the story, I control the version.
Because if I tell the story, I can make you laugh, and I would rather have you laugh at me than feel sorry for me.
Because if I tell the story, it doesn't hurt as much.
Because if I tell the story, I can get on with it.

The tabloids love Baby Bullock ...


... but I'm not sure that accuracy is their strong suit. From the NY Daily News:

Louis Bardot Bullock

"Can baby Louis get any cuter?! The adorable adopted son of Sandra Bullock has a blast while playing with his mama at a Soho playground."

Yes, he is cute. But does it look as if he is having a blast? In fact, I've seen lots of pictures of this baby since Ms. Bullock went public with her adoption a year or so ago and I have never seen a picture where he is smiling or laughing. Never. Not once.

Why do you always look so sad, little Louis?

I ***LOVE*** Hello Kitty ...

... I really do ... but I must admit that they is something really creepy/scary about a six foot tall person in a Hello Kitty costume.

Sex and The City Movie Premiere

#1 - There are no words to describe the thing sitting on SJP's head.

#2 - Kim Cattrall's hairdo makes her face look big and round.

#3 - Cynthia Nixon looks like a mannequin.

#4 - Kristin Davis needs a new stylist. What an awful dress.

I didn't watch the show. Did they dress like this on tv, too?

I always liked Jay ...

Jay Leno hates veggies.

... and now I know why!

And you thought YOUR boss gave out crappy presents

From Ben Widdicombe's Gatecrasher column in the NY Daily News:

Will Smith has joined the ranks of Hollywood power players actively recruiting for the Church of Scientology.

Big stars traditionally distribute "wrap presents" to crew members after completing a film. His recent gift after wrapping next summer's comedy "Hancock" was a card good for a personality test at your local Scientology center.

Never mind that such tests are given free by the church anyway. The quiz is designed to convert people to the religion by identifying personality flaws that - surprise! - Scientology can fix right up for you. For a fee, of course.
