    I love Laura Ingraham. Love her. I'd propose marriage to her if I wasn't already married to The Love of My Life. But since starting her TV show on FNC on October 30, the quality of her radio show has gone straight downhill. Is she burning the candle too much at both ends? A taped TV show tonight (even Shannon Bream is live) and she left her 3-hour radio show today at the 2-hour mark. She did take one hilarious caller, the lady who described the beer can in the turkey's butt. Anyone have a tape of that call? Priceless....

    The so-called insiders have got it all wrong. And that's exactly what happens when you only hear bits of a conversation, and assume from there. I have it on good authority that for his running mate, Cruz will be selecting Carly Simon, not Carly Fiorina.

    SINGER CARLY SIMON has finally ended a 38-year guessing game - by naming the subject of hit You're So Vain. The catty lyrics were believed to be aimed at an ex-boyfriend such as MICK JAGGER, CAT STEVENS, KRIS KRISTOFFERSON or WARREN BEATTY. But now the target has been revealed as gay producer DAVID GEFFEN, at the time head of Carly's Elektra record label. And rather than being angry about a failed relationship, Carly is thought to have resented the effort he put into promoting rival JONI MITCHELL. Carly, 64, had always claimed in public that the song was a "composite"...

    For years there has been debate about which of Carly Simon's ex-boyfriends could have inspired the hit song You're So Vain. But while former lovers Mick Jagger, Kris Kristofferson, Cat Stevens and Warren Beatty were left wondering whether 'this song is about you', they have been proved wrong. For the Seventies singer has finally revealed the real inspiration behind her hit track wasn't a boyfriend at all - it was openly gay record producer David Geffen. Simon, 64, ended the 38 year guessing game by whispering the name backwards on a reworked version of the song for her new album...

    Singer Carly Simon is suing Starbucks Corp., saying the coffee company's now-defunct music venture didn't adequately promote her 2008 album, dooming the record before it was even released. The singer, whose biggest success came during the 1970s and '80s with hits like "You're So Vain" and "Anticipation," is seeking unspecified damages related to the release of the 14-track "This Kind of Love" in April 2008.

Forte, 33, a first-time offender, was convicted of possessing the 31 pounds...
