On to the gossip! Of which there just ain’t much. First, Paris Hilton makes everyone happy.
Why is Paris Hilton a celebrity?
Video of Paris Hilton sending a whole bunch of mallrats into complete hysterics:
If you had a preteen daughter, would you be encouraging her to take Paris Hilton as a role model? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
Next: the Oscars apologize to Whoopi Goldberg.
The Oscars apologize for having their head up their ass
So you remember that Whoopi got slighted at the Oscars? Here’s the official apology:
[It] was “an absolute oversight,” the award show’s producer tells PEOPLE.
“No harm was intended, and I feel very, very badly that she was left out,” Gil Cates said Tuesday. “I’m going to call her and tell her that.”
Although described as a montage of hosts, the piece shown at Sunday night’s telecast on ABC was actually “supposed to be a montage of 80 exciting moments of the Academy Awards” culled from hundreds of hours of footage, says Cates. “Basically, that was not a montage about hosts.”
Hmph! Darn tootin!!!
Next: know anyone who’s inbred? Because their ship has come in!!!
Julianne Moore is looking for people who have a “different look”
So! Apparently there has been a casting call put out in the Pittsburgh/West Virginia area for a new horror movie starring Julianne Moore. Except this is a VERY SPECIAL casting call:
A movie about to be filmed in Pittsburgh is casting Gothic characters — including an albino-like girl and deformed people — to depict West Virginia mountain people.
“‘Regular-looking” children need not apply.
That’s the gist of an open casting call for paid extras for “Shelter,” a horror film starring Julianne Moore that will begin shooting in Pittsburgh in March.
The casting call scheduled for Sunday invites “men and women of all races, 18 or older,” to try out as extras, according to the announcement from Downtown-based Donna Belajac Casting. But the extras wanted for the West Virginia scenes evoke images of “Deliverance” and “The Hills Have Eyes.”
“It’s the way it was described in the script,” Belajac said Monday. “Some of these ‘holler’ people — because they are insular and clannish, and they don’t leave their area — there is literally inbreeding, and the people there often have a different kind of look. That’s what we’re trying to get.
Holy crap, could they get any more in trouble for all that? Except I’m not sure if these kind of folks would know they’re being insulted. Oh, that’s bad. BAD.
Next: Pink speaks out about her divorce. Sniff, sniff.
I’m getting divorced but we’re still best friends says Pink
Why is it that EVERY SINGLE CELEB who gets divorced has to put out this same recycled bullpucky?
I wanted to reach out personally to all my fans/friends out there in the world. First and foremost, thank-you for all of your support and love, it means a lot to me right now. The most important thing for you all to know, is that Carey and I love each other so so much. This break up is not about cheating, anger, or fighting. I know it sounds like cliche bulls***, but we are best friends, and we will continue to be. All I know at this point, is that I want to make the best album I can, and Carey wants to do the best possible job he can with everything he has going on. He is a good man, so please support him as well. One never knows the future, but mine and Careys’ just might involve beach babies and sunshine one day. Just not right now.
Thanks for the concern and caring.
X Miss P”
Seriously, I expected her to be a little more out of control than this – I was kinda hoping (just a little bit) that she would do something crazy like I don’t even know what. Well, that’s it for today – lame, I know, but let’s go out on a good note:
Oh, I’m loving that baby! I want to smush him! Don’t you want to smush him?!?!?!? I’ll see you tomorrow morning, Snarkarinos!
