Paula Abdul’s Top Five Highest Moments

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.

Zodiac Killer = Worst. Dad. Ever.

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.

Bea Arthur, Television’s Ballsiest Broad

Bea Arthur passed away over the weekend at the age of 86. Sadness. Everything I needed to know about scathing wit I learned from Dorothy Zbornak, who was my constant companion on TV throughout kidhood. “The Golden Girls” were funny and fierce, not letting age get in the way of a good time. The ladies sipped frozen drinks and laughed at all the curveballs life threw at them a decade before Carrie & Co. sexed up the city. After the jump, a look back at our favorite Bea Arthur moments.

Police have arrested the alleged “Craigslist Killer,” who terrorized at least two women in Boston in the last 10 days, leaving one of them dead. This computer-age Jack the Ripper suspect is 23-year-old Philip Markoff, a second-year med student at Boston University.

For the past 10 years, the Coachella Music Festival has brought hundreds of thousands of panting people to Indio, CA to shake their moneymakers. [NY Times]. So, put on an ironic tee, grab a PBR, and climb on the shoulders of some dude you just met in Elvis Costello specs. It’ll feel just like being there, I promise.
