“I think we should probably try to have a girl, because I don’t want another male entity to have to compete; I don’t want [my 17-year-old son] Indio to feel there’s another boy in my life. But I don’t know what we’d have to do [to have a girl]. Do we have to put it in a spoon and hang it upside-down?”

We’re just about a week away from Halloween and the creepy movies are back in spades. I guess that watching “Paranormal Activity 2″ would be cheaper than most haunted houses. And you don’t have to get any hay on your butt, if you don’t want to. Most of the other movies are about varying degrees of desperation. I guess this time of year lends itself to that kind of thing—wallowing in the dying bits before everything’s iced over and reborn. Or maybe I’m just projecting? Keep reading »
Ever since my engagement ended, I’ve been kind of “meh” on marriage. Not because I haven’t found the “right” person yet, but because I’m just not sold on the whole institution anymore. Chen Wei-yih hasn’t met the right person yet either, but she’s not letting that little fact get in the way of her having the wedding of her dreams — the Taiwanese woman is marrying herself. “My work and experience are in good shape, but I haven’t found a partner, so what can I do?” Chen lamented to reporters. What she can do, apparently, is throw herself a lavish party, hire a photographer, and don a pretty white wedding gown, all to mark the marriage of Chen Wei-yih to Chen Wei-yih. which, naturally, won’t actually be recognized by law. “I’m not anti-marriage,” she says. “I just hope that I can express a different idea within the bounds of a tradition.” My only question: where did she register?

Good news for Lindsay Lohan! The actress appeared before a judge today for sentencing, after repeatedly violating the terms of her probation set in 2007. Lohan has been in rehab at the Betty Ford Center since last month, when she was arrested for failing a mandatory drug test and then released on bail. At today’s hearing, prosecutors argued that LiLo should be sentenced to six months in the pokey and that entering rehab last month was only to avoid jail time, not because she had some sort of “epiphany.” Lohan’s attorneys countered that relapse is a common part of recovery and that the actress is “trying her best.” Lindsay’s next court date is scheduled for Feb. 23, 2011.
Now, most importantly, is it just me or does Lohan look like she wore a new pair of lips to court today? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
