Who would have thought Dirty Harry would have such a soft spot for a wild animal as inconsequential as the squirrel? According to a truly heartwarming story of potentially dubious origins, Clint Eastwood’s best friend is a squirrel named Lola who lives near his office on the Paramount lot. A source says:
“Clint leaves the front door open whenever he’s inside working so Lola can come and go. He gets a kick out of watching her and always keeps a bag of shelled peanuts on the bottom shelf of a bookcase in case she gets hungry. Clint would be so upset if Lola disappeared. He enjoys her company.”
How beautiful! Normally, to quote Carrie Bradshaw (ugh, I’m sorry), I consider squirrels to be rats with cuter outfits, but Clint’s ringing endorsement of the fluffy-tailed creature may have changed my mind. [Contact Music]
In honor of Clint and Lola’s love, here are 12 other celebs who are equally as obsessively attached to their pets.
Since the start of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” latest season, I haven’t been able to pinpoint my feelings on Brandi Glanville. Each episode, my thoughts on her vacillate wildly. Very first impression, I wasn’t a fan. Maybe it was my spidey senses tingling that there was something “off” about her, or maybe I was just jealous of her ridiculous body. But then, when the rest of the cast reverted to high school mean girls, laughing and whispering about her — in front of her — I felt bad for her. And that sort of trumped my initial bad vibes toward her.
I now know that it’s all relative. Not excusing the ladies’ rude obnoxious behavior, but Brandi is kind of a yahoo. And not just because of the way she acted in last night’s episode. Because the former Mrs. Eddie Cibrian had a drunken marriage in Vegas this past weekend – and, to add insult to injury, followed it up with a barrage of idiotic tweets. Read more…
The best part of the holidays being over is that TV can go back to its regular schedule. Specifically, a new episode of “Revenge” is finalllllly on this Wednesday after a few weeks hiatus.

When Courtney Stodden asks her Twitter followers to do something, they listen. Or, rather, I listen. Check out my attempt at “floor flashing” after the jump. Keep reading »
“Start in a hot, dry room and then move into an even warmer steam room. Then splash yourself with cold water (or even dunk in cold pool or under a cold shower). Follow it with a full body scrubdown, which is typically followed by a massage. At the end you’ll be sent to a cool room to relax and cool down.”
Still nursing a New Year’s hangover? This is how Gwyneth Paltrow suggests you get rid of it. I think I’ve turned a corner in my Gwyneth loathing where I’m actually amused by her unapologetic ignorance to the fact that not everyone lives like she does. You know, with instant access to a sauna, steam room, cold pool, body scrub-ologist (I just made that up but I bet Gwyneth has one in a closet somewhere), and masseuse after a particularly rough night guzzling Dom Perignon.
