    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...

    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,...

Edward Shock, the Armed Forces Entertainment director. That sentiment of thanking the troops during the holidays was echoed by the visitors. "We understand and appreciate your sacrifice.

The administration posted the records on its Web site yesterday, two days after a report revealed that some of Obama's top financial backers had gotten White House tours and even use...

    It's the newest craze sweeping through Hollywood -- celebrities with Swine Flu!!!! And now two new members are on the infectious bandwagon! CNN's chief medical expert Dr. Sanjay Gupta just got over his bout with the Swine Flu -- and Marilyn Manson just announced that he's got S.F. right now! "Harry Potter's" Rupert Grint had it ... "The Early Show's" Harry Smith thinks he has it ... and Lisa Rinna claims her entire family got down with the sickness. It's a full blown trend! According to Manson, he didn't contract it by "f**king a pig" -- we're guessing Gupta didn't...

    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...

    Poor Farrah Fawcett. A month ago, People magazine's Larry Hackett admitted to the Times that she only had one remaining chance for some friendly press: "At this point, Farrah has to die," he said. "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.
