It’s hard to believe that Brittany Murphy suddenly passed away. We are all in shock but it seems to be hitting the celeb community hard. Everyone is in mourning, especially those who knew and loved her. Like ex and co-star Ashton Kutcher. Before he got with Demi, he and Murphy were shacking up off screen when they starred in the (really bad – I’m sorry … it’s true) rom-com “Just Married.” Yesterday Ashton tweeted about Brittany’s death. “2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine. My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittany’s family, her husband, & her amazing mother Sharon.” Later he added, “See you on the other side kid.” Sweet of him … yes. But does that “see you on the other side” comment creep anyone else out? After the jump, some more celebrity tweets about Brittany’s death. As a side note, I’m in mourning about the frequent misspelling of her name by her peers. [US Weekly]
If you watched James Franco hosting “SNL” this weekend, then you might have noticed a little bit of a theme … homosexuality. Almost every skit contained some sort of gay reference. Hmmm … let’s see: He played Latin singing star Rico Garlanda, danced in footsie pajamas, portrayed James Dean exchanging secret Santa gifts with Liberace and Vincent Price, and finally engaged in multiple, incestuous man-on-man kisses (with tongue). Interesting. He said in his opening monologue that every move in his career is calculated. What shall we, your adoring audience, take this to mean, Mr. Franco? Is pretending to be gay part of your “performance art”? Or could this just be a ploy to perpetuate rumors that you’re gay and confuse your fans? Stay tuned to the Franco gallery for the next clue.

When I think of the “nerds” from my childhood, I think of Steve Urkel, Screech, and all characters played by Anthony Michael Hall. Ummm, no thanks. Luckily, a whole new kind of nerd emerged in the 2000s—the nerdy guy who is actually smoking hot once you take away his Dungeons and Dragons gamers’ guide. It was hard to choose just 10 nerds who got my pocket protector thumping this decade. But here are my picks for the hottest nerds of the decade.
Let’s start with Andy Samberg. I’ll never forget that wonderful evening in 2005 when “Saturday Night Live” aired a sketch called “Lazy Sunday” where two nerds rap about “The Chronicles of Narnia.” Only Andy was the dreamiest rapping nerd I had ever seen. With that Jew-fro and that sense of humor, he is certainly a contendah for my fave nerd eva! Word!
I was pleasantly surprised to discover that blonde, blue-eyed beauty Cate Blanchett went through a goth phase. Really? I mean, I went through one, too, but I never would have expected that from prim and proper Cate. When asked in an interview about how her beauty regime has changed over time, Blanchett admitted, “I’d go to bed with my makeup on if I’d been out. And I went through a big gothic phase, so my pillow was always covered in black mascara and white pancake makeup.” Never would have guessed.
After the jump, some more unexpected celebrity phases.

I guess the first time you get buck naked on stage and subject your small peen to public scrutiny is the worst. It seems that Daniel Radcliffe got comfortable with the fact that he’s not hung like a horse after his full-frontal in the Broadway play “Equus.” In fact, I would venture to say that he has embraced his wang and the rest of his body so much that he wants to get buck again … in the next Harry Potter flick. Whoa! Are we really ready to see Daniel’s magic ween again? [PopEater]
But Daniel’s not the only celeb who’s into getting nude for roles. After the jump, some more celebs who loved flaunting their birthday suits. Hey, if the part calls for it … why not?
We’ve all had a giggle fit at an inappropriate moment before, but sometimes it’s just dead wrong. I’m totally miffed by this video of a news anchor seriously losing her s**t as she reports on the case of Stephen Grant, a 37-year-old Michigan man who was convicted of murdering his wife, Tara Lynn Grant. But this is not your run-of-the-mill murder case. It’s completely psychotic. Grant dismembered his wife, chopped up her body, and deposited her bits and pieces in a nearby park. After maintaining his innocence for a while, Grant went on the lam and was finally captured with a Charles Manson-esque look in the eyes, in Michigan’s snowy Wilderness State Park. He was rushed to a hospital with frostbite and hypothermia, but once he was released, he made a graphic confession and was arraigned on Tuesday. OK, I am totally creeped out. Can anyone tell me why this news anchor can’t stop laughing? What am I missing? Did someone fart? I’m sure Tara Lynn Grant’s family loved this clip. [Fox News, Funny or Die] Keep reading »
It must be really stressful to be a celebrity with all those perks and people catering to your every need all the time. Nonetheless, celebrities are people too, and they get stressed out. Carrie Underwood must be really stressed lately. In fact, she recently admitted to having some uncharacteristically aggressive de-stressing sessions. “If I’m ticked off, I’ll get a punching bag and beat the crap out of it,” Carrie revealed. Yikes. And she looks so sweet and innocent. Carrie, I’m not sure that beating up a punching bag is the most productive way to wind down after a rough day. Maybe she should take a cue from some of her celeb counterparts? After the jump, some other celebrities’ stress relievers of choice. [NY Daily News]
We’re so glad that author Alan Weider is finding new ways to celebrate the c**k. After the release of his memoir, The Year of the C**k, a tale about the year his ween obsession reeked havoc on his life, Alan decided to keep the penis love growing by sponsoring a penis haiku (phaiku) contest. If you’re a poetry lover like me, then you probably entered the contest. Well … the esteemed judges have voted on their favorite phaikus. I was disappointed to find out that my entry came in sixth place. Boo! But I must admit the winning entries were c**ktastic. After the jump, the winners’ penile musings. May I suggest a vagina haiku (vaiku) contest next, Alan? Keep reading »
I’ll never forget the night that my little brother Adam was born. (That’s us on the left, by the way.) I was 3 years old and spending the night at my best friend’s house. We were lip-syncing our way through the entire “Footloose” soundtrack, when we got a call that my little brother had been born. I ran around the house screaming like a banshee because I couldn’t wait to meet him. My dad picked me up and brought me to the hospital, where I ran into the hospital room to see my mom holding what looked like a human tadpole. “That’s my brother?” I asked disappointed. Ugh.
