Conan O’Brien’s New Show Is Anti-Actor

“No actors, no actresses … I want to talk to people who are good at a craft, people who work with their hands. We’re going to talk to a lot of upholsterers. And we may have financial penalties. If Jim Carrey or Tom Hanks accidentally mentions his project, I think the viewer should be compensated in some way. That would be a way to turn this economy around.”

Conan O’Brien on what we should expect from his new show, “Conan,” premiering tonight on TBS. I look forward to hearing from many a skilled craftsmen. And maybe making a buck or two off accidental celebrity shillfests. Go Coco, go! [NY Post] Keep reading »

Courtney Love, We Don’t Need To Trust You

In a captivating New York Times style feature that ran this weekend, Courtney Love—dubbed a darling of the fashion community—talks about how much she wants to be trusted again.

“I’d like to be trusted again, like I was at one point. I’m not trusted right now. People don’t want to get in trouble. They think that I am probably going to talk about things I shouldn’t talk about, which I do a little bit, but I am really trying to be trusted again.”

But really, did we ever trust her? Keep reading »

Sean Connery Had A Really Nice Butt

Before Sean Connery was Bond, James Bond, he was nude, totally nude. While trying to start his acting career and training for the Mr. Universe competition, a super cut Connery took it all off for students at the Edinburgh College of Art. But clearly the artist Rab Webster, who recently passed away, knew what sexy magic he was looking at because he had Connery pose for him a lot. What a lucky guy! Apparently, Mr. Webster — who went on to become a high school art teacher — painted and sketched a bunch of set-ups with Sean. But he never showed his work of the famed actor to his family, or tried to profit from it. Classy or stupid? Thankfully, his folks noticed the portraits of the original Bond and are putting his ass on display. Yay! Because I think we can all agree that is one beautiful piece of art.

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Hangs Out With ‘Mean Girls’”

A couple months ago I entered into a relationship with an awesome guy whom I work with (not necessarily the best call, but what can you do!). So far, things have been pretty good. We have the ability to keep it professional at work and we share the same sense of humor, etc.. The problem is, a couple girls in our office also like him, but are very catty about it. They’re the kind of girls who attempt to be your friend in order to get info. Recently, a coworker whom I am also friends with overheard these girls saying nasty things about me and that they hope my relationship would end. I told this to my boyfriend, but he still continues to spend time with them at work and outside of work (without me!). I told him I didn’t want it to influence their friendship — I would just hope he would see that it really hurt my feelings, and any girl who would say that is not as good of a friend of his as he thought. I’m reluctant to tell him that this is making me crazy, but I don’t know what else to do! — Jealous Coworker
