    The Hollywood Palladium was the stylish site Friday night for the The 2010 Critics’ Choice Awards, bestowed annually by the Broadcast Film Critics Association to honor the finest in cinematic achievement. Star power galore, a teeming mass of chic humanity and glamorous glitterati insured the Critics’ Choice Red Carpet fashion fu would be exceptionally strong and we were not disappointed in the least. It was Diane Kruger who gave us most of the goose bumps. The German actress sparkled like a diva in a white silk Donna Karan gown.

    The History Channel will produce more episodes of its vastly biased and unpopular, "The People Who Agree With Celebrities Speak." Hosted by Matt Damon, Sean Penn, and Eric Estrada, the series presents letters and documents of people whose words are perfectly in line with the left-leaning celebrities who read the documents with pseudo-seriousness.The show will be narrated by Howard Zinn, who agrees with people who agree with celebrities. "These are the voices of the people who were really there doing things that most of my friends agree with, but things that we are too afraid to do because we prefer...

    (CNN) -- The recent passing of actress Brittany Murphy adds another high-profile name to the list of those who have died in 2009. The year seems to have been filled with an inordinate amount of high-profile deaths -- some even on the same day. Among those who passed: Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Natasha Richardson, Bea Arthur, Dom DeLuise, Karl Malden, David Carradine, Patrick Swayze, John Hughes, Ed McMahon, Walter Cronkite and Don Hewitt. Authors John Updike, Frank McCourt and Dominick Dunne died, as did blues legend Koko Taylor, Ventures guitarist Bob Bogle, Mary Travers of Peter, Paul & Mary, guitar...

    Why Celebrity Op-Eds Suck Pretty much anything Bono or Sean Penn write is a festival of crap that would never be tolerated from another contributor. Even James Franco sounds like a moron in today's Wall Street Journal. Here's why: Celebrities sell newspapers: which apparently makes it fine to abandon your journalistic standards and give them tacit copy approval to get their name on the cover. Here's what one copy editor, who wanted complete anonymity because everyone gets all angry where celebs are concerned, said of working on a rambling diatribe by a famous columnist for a British newspaper. When it...

    On Saturday's Huckabee show on FNC, host Mike Huckabee interviewed gameshow host Chuck Woolery, who admitted to being conservative and voiced support for term limits, the Constitution, and tea party protesters. As the segment started, Woolery -- who famously hosted the shows Love Connection, Scrabble, and even the first several years of Wheel of Fortune -- joked: "I'm now sacrificing my career coming out as a conservative. So I'll never be hired in Hollywood again once they find out I'm doing it on your show." When Huckabee brought up the tea party protests, Woolery spoke approvingly: "It's a grassroots movement,...

Also among the Tinseltown drop-ins were megastars Brad Pitt and Denzel Washington, who paid a visit in May, according to visitors logs, which cover January to July.

    July 15, 2009 Note: The recent untimely and controversial deaths of actor David Carradine, mega-star Michael Jackson and football great Steve McNair beg a re-reading of a column posted in October 2003 about Denver businessman Justin Rosen. Stellar professional careers, as well as ordinary lives, can be sullied, overshadowed and devalued by circumstances surrounding our deaths. It’s essential that we end well. In death, Justyn Rosen was caught with his pants down. An alleged adulterous affair erupted and killed him. Few would have suspected his dalliance with Teresa Perez, 40, had she not reacted so murderously when the 79 year-old...

"It's the only cover left for her." Needless to say, she's missed her chance. Having vanished from the headlines after Michael Jackson's sudden demise, Farrah is just the latest to join a peculiar group: the Eclipsed Celebrity Death Club.

    It is not surprising that such far left Hollywood celebrities as Sean Pean and Danny Glover would support an outright communist dictatorship in Cuba but many other seemingly sane folks also have expressed their sympathy for Fidel Castro. I'm talking about people like Kevin Costner and Steven Spielberg. Costner is not known for any extreme leftwing politics and Spielberg, while liberal, has embarrassed himself with his support for the communist regime. Why? Well, we might have the answer: blackmail. According to an article by Humberto Fontova pubished in the Canada Free Press, it was the task of a high ranking...

But President Obama wasn't home. Informed that Obama had just left for Iowa and wouldn't be inside, the singer seemed disappointed. "He did?" he said. What an odd story! Usher just came over for a chat, apparently. And there is an open door-to-R&B superstars policy, at the White House, even when the President is a thousand miles...

    Hollywood has come to the White House. The latest celeb to be granted an audience with President Barack Obama is Brad Pitt, who was smuggled into the White House yesterday for talks about "green housing" in New Orleans. A couple of weeks back, it was George Clooney who met President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in the White House to discuss Darfur. Afterwards, Clooney told reporters that he'd been assured by "the administration" that a "full-time, high-level envoy" to the region would be appointed. Also in on the White House meeting with Pitt was energy czar Carol Browner....

They are not only two of the world’s biggest stars but are also leading players in the new “celebriplomacy”. Washington used to be known as “Hollywood for ugly people”, but the bold and beautiful are flocking to the capital. Pitt slipped quietly into the White House last week for a private audience with the president in the Oval Office. History does not record whether he met Michelle Obama or...

Simpson, says "I'm not saying he should have killed her, but I understand." Hilarious, right? I probably laughed at that once. But it's not funny at all. Lately, I've seen this quote invoked in comment sections across the blogosphere in reference to the Chris Brown and Rihanna saga. Apparently, it's not so much a "joke" as it is a popular and accepted attitude toward violence against women...

    When during a pre-election debate Barack Obama and John McCain both said that an apparent rise in autism cases might be connected to vaccines, those who knew better squirmed at the lack of scientific knowledge of the two remaining presidential candidates on this topic. In fact, studies have found no link between autism and vaccines. But televised statements by such high-profile people have a way of perpetuating myths. In it's third annual report, the UK group Sense about Science calls the two candidates out on the inaccurate statements, along with a long list of celebrities' scientifically inaccurate claims.

    The modern obsession with celebrity started in 18th-century Britain with obituaries of unusual people published in what served as the gossip sheets of the era, an English literature scholar says. Some researchers think the phenomenon of celebrity was born with the 19th-century Romantic movement in art, music and literature (think of works by Chopin, J.M.W. Turner and Edgar Allen Poe). Instead, Elizabeth Barry of the University of Warwick in England claims the modern public fascination with celebrities can be traced back to the rise of newspapers and magazines and the popularity of the obituaries in the 18th century. "Different kinds...

    Country singer Carrie Underwood may seem like America’s sweetheart, but just make sure you don’t ask her who she is voting for in this year’s presidential election. “There is someone I do support, but I don’t support publicly,” gossip Web site Just Jared quotes Underwood as telling TV Guide. “I lose all respect for celebrities when they back a candidate,” she said. “It’s saying that the American public isn’t smart enough to make their own decisions.” The American Idol alum added that she would never want “anybody to vote for anything or anybody just because I told them to.”

    Bill O'Reilly has a feature called "Pinhead or Patriot?" on his evening talking head hour. He examines recent actions of people, usually celebrities, and based on those actions, he brands them "Pinhead" or "Patriot". Sometimes I agree with him and sometimes I don't. Sometimes his choices for "Patriot" seem almost condescending, like the recent knighting of Lady Elizabeth Taylor for rolling out on a stage. Yeah, I know...that comment made me a pinhead, but it's true nonetheless. I really doubt that the woman I saw did a whole lot in the way of licking envelopes. Lately I've been disagreeing more...
  • Celebrity Education: Liberals vs. Conservatives

    So I thought I would do a little research. I am so sick and tired of celebrities pushing their liberal agenda on us, and using every opportunity to tell us how to vote. So I thought, what exactly qualifies these people to give us political advice? Well, it definitely isn't what they do for a living, so I figure maybe it was their education. So thanks to IMDB.com and Wikipedia, I found the following: Actor George Clooney briefly attended NKU but did not graduate Brad Pitt attended the University of Missouri, where he majored in journalism with a focus on...

    by Eric "Mr. EPluribus" PorvaznikWe've definitely got a one of the good guys on our side Once upon a time, there was a man named Michael Moore. For far worse than better, he liked to get under people's skin, from local school board members to, quite honestly, just about anyone who merely happened to disagree with his (and only his) way of thinking. He released a few pieces of fiction posing as documentaries, proposed very few (if any) solutions to the problems he illustrated (or invented) in his movies, and became the darling of the cinematic world, even garnering enough recognition...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Actor Robert Wagner says he was so distraught over the break-up of his first marriage to actress Natalie Wood that he pondered suicide and would sit with a gun outside the home of her lover, Warren Beatty, intent on killing him. "Pieces of My Heart," Wagner's autobiography released this week, reveals details of his career and life, including the split with Wood, their decision to remarry a decade later and her drowning death in 1981. "I was pretty young, and I don't think I could have ever gone through with that act, but I was pretty...
