6 Cocktails Named After Famous Folks

Mel Gibson‘s infamous rants have earned him a lot of haters, but now they’ve also earned him the honor of having a drink named after him. At the Oak Bar in New York’s Plaza Hotel, they’re serving up a Mel ‘Bipolar’ Gibson. Executive chef Eric Hara said of the drink, “Gibson … Bipolar … All these words flying around in the media just jumped out at me. So I made a Gibson, which is a classic cocktail, into something thoroughly twisted.” The cocktail consists of a shot of gin, a shot of Van Gogh Vodka, since the painter was also bipolar, and of course cocktail onions for garnish. Let’s just hope Gibson doesn’t unleash his wrath on Hara! [People] Keep reading »

Quotable: Liev Schreiber Felt Some Sexual Tension With Angelina Jolie

“I hadn’t known her very well at all. In the beginning, I think I was very intimidated and kind of nervous. I get uncomfortable around famous people and beautiful women, and she was kind of a double threat. I felt like the important part of the job for me was to develop familiarity with her because that was the humanizing factor. We bonded over kids very quickly. I have two small kids and she has small kids and it quickly became, ‘Oh you’re doing time-outs now? That’s just teething.’ And all the sexual tension went out of the room. All the anxiety about her being very famous and a super-human celebrity kind of went away and I found this very nice easy person that I could relate to.”

—Liev Schreiber talks about working with Angelina Jolie on “Salt.” Here’s hoping he feels more sexual tension with his gorgeous lady, Naomi Watts. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Don’t Want Acne? Quit Smoking!

As if you really needed another reason to kick that terrible smoking habit — that is, if you do smoke — here’s news that just might put you off those cancer sticks. Recent studies found that those who have the nasty habit are also more likely to have another nasty issue: acne. So that means in addition to stinky clothes, yellow fingers, and smoking breath, smokers can now add pimples and poor complexions to their list of issues, all thanks to the cigarettes they’re inhaling. We’d suggest heading out to the drugstore for Nicorette gum ASAP and relishing in your new, clear face once you’ve kicked the habit. Your lungs — and pores — will thank you.

Colorado Candidate Says Vote For Me “Because I Do Not Wear High Heels”

Politicians and stupid remarks go together like 90-degree days and Frappucinos. But you’d hope that in 2010, politicians would know better than to sling mud about each other’s gender. Recently, Jane Norton, a U.S. Senate candidate from Colorado, made the sexist comment that her opponent, Ken Buck, was not “man enough” to criticize her himself and instead had others do his dirty work. Then yesterday at a fundraiser, Buck sniped back with a remark about Norton’s femininity — by way of her footwear. When an audience member asked the Colorado cowboy why he deserved their votes, Buck responded, “Why should you vote for me? Because I do not wear high heels.”

In other words, because he’s not a woman. Or maybe a transvestite. But we think he meant a woman. Keep reading »

Mel Texted To Oksana, “I Wasn’t Safe For You Last Night,” And Allegedly Smashed A Glass Door

As if six different audiotapes screaming “bitch,” “c**t” and “gold digging whore” weren’t enough, now there are alleged Mel Gibson text messages. Radar Online reports that on January 7, 2010 — the day after Mel allegedly punched girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva twice in the head while she was holding their two-month-old daughter, Lucia — he sent Oksana texts acknowledging some sort of craziness the night before. “Oksana, I wasn’t safe for you last night,” the texts allegedly say. “I spent two hours with a therapist today and have regained some perspective. What I’m telling you know [sic] is I am safe and would like to come by and make amends to you, Sascha [her 12-year-old son from a previous marriage], and Lucia. I won’t stay, just let you say your peace [sic] and I’ll say mine.”

Well, at least he’s seeing a therapist. Keep reading »
