Supreme Court Justice David Souter is a wackadoodle. He’s eaten the same lunch everyday for 19 years—yogurt and an apple. He refuses to get a computer. And even though he was appointed by Republican George Bush, he usually sides with the liberally-minded folks on the bench. Now that Souter is retiring, we hope Obama will fill the seat with someone equally as interesting.
Rumor has it that Obama wants a woman for the job — which warms our hearts and our wombs, since there’s only one woman left on the court, and her health isn’t so great. At the top of Obama’s short list: solicitor general Elena Kagan, judge Sonia Sotomayer, and Jennifer Granholm, governor of Michigan. Each met privately with the President yesterday in Washington, DC.

Tonight, tune yourselves (or your DVRs) in to Fox for some singing amazingness. No, not the “American Idol” almost-finale (dear Lord, give it to Adam already!). It’s a sneak peek at “Glee,” a new musical show that features my two favorite things: bitchy one-liners and musical numbers.

For those of you who haven’t memorized every episode of “Rock of Love,” here are the details on the latest lady to get her own dating show. Keep reading »

This just in from the Department of No-Duh: Paula Abdul has fessed up to Ladies Home Journal that she’s been fighting an addiction to pain killers. For 12 years, Ms. Straight Up was anything but, shooting syringes of lidocaine into her butt before graduating to a don’t-try-this-at-home pain killer patch that’s 80 percent stronger than morphine.

The Zodiac Killer wasn’t just a serial psychopath—he was also a terrible dad. O, at least that’s what Deborah Perez is saying. Yesterday, she announced that her father, Guy Ward Hendrickson, was the notorious murderer who terrorized the Bay Area in the 1960s. Five Zodiac victims were confirmed, but in creepy letters he sent to local newspapers, he claimed 37. Not only are the crimes still unsolved, but his code remains uncracked.
