--Hey Paige! Call me!

Baby Got Back

Filming for a TV commercial was reportedly held up - because J-Lo's bum was too big for her skimpy outfit.

The singer failed to squeeze into her sexy black leather costume for the new Pepsi commercial, reports the Daily Star. Frantic staff had to stitch an extra piece of leather onto the outfit to cover the star's curvy bottom, according to the paper.

A set insider said: "It was quite comical, really. There were all these people ready to get on with the work when we realized there was a problem. "Basically J-Lo's num was just too curvy for the outfit."

Getty has dementia


Estelle Getty, the actress who played the lovable and witty Sophia on "The Golden Girls," is suffering from dementia but is not on her deathbed.

Despite recent tabloid rumors that she is dying, Getty's former castmates set the record straight, saying she is "not near death...not near death at all." Betty White, Bea Arthur, and Rue McClanahan reunited in Beverly Hills for the DVD release of the popular show and were quick to express how much they missed Getty at the event.

--How sad. I'll admit it: I loved that show. I still catch some of the reruns on TV. I also liked her character in the movie Mannequin.

Dating advice from Dr. Ruth

Ticked you got picked for jury duty? Bet you didn't think of this:

Dr. Ruth Westheimer thinks people should know that jury duty has an upside that doesn't get talked about much: It's a great way to get a date. "Jury duty is good way to meet men and women, a partner," Westheimer said.

--You're right, Dr. Ruth. That never would have occurred to me.

Basketbrawl

Ok, so our very own Indiana Pacers are having some anger management problems.

In response, ESPN highlighted some of the most notorious player-fan brawls in sports.

--I'm in absolutely no way condoning the deplorable behavior of the players of my favorite NBA team (although I think Wallace got off too easy). But, when you remember some of the events on this list, it puts Friday night in more perspective--not that it's right, but it's certainly not the worst brawl that has ever occurred.

AFI's Quote List

The American Film Institute is surveying Hollywood types for the top 100 quotes from U.S. movies, with contenders including Bogart's "Here's looking at you, kid" from "Casablanca," Schwarzenegger's "I'll be back" from "The Terminator" and Nicholson's "You can't handle the truth!" from "A Few Good Men."

Chosen from 400 classic lines of dialogue, the winners will be revealed in the CBS special "AFI's 100 Years ... 100 Movie Quotes" in June.

Other contending quotes include Clark Gable's "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn" from "Gone With the Wind," Mae West's "Why don't you come up and see me?" from "She Done Him Wrong," Tom Hanks' "Houston, we have a problem" from "Apollo 13," Cuba Gooding Jr.'s "Show me the money" from "Jerry Maguire" and the "Star Wars" gang's "May the Force be with you."

The quotes range from the first full sound feature film with Al Jolson's "Wait a minute, wait a minute. You ain't heard nothin' yet" from 1927's "The Jazz Singer" to creepy creature Gollum (Andy Serkis) hissing "My precious" in 2002's "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers."

--I cannot wait for this. Some of my faves:

"I carried a watermelon." --Dirty Dancing
"I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti."--The Silence of the Lambs
"You're so money and you don't even know it."--Swingers
"Bonjourno principesa!"--Life is Beautiful
"If you don't have anything nice to say, come sit by me."--Steel Magnolias
"You are so busted!"--American Beauty

What quote do you think should be on the list?

Pitt Passes on ITAS

Hollywood heart-throb Brad Pitt turned down the chance to star in critical chat show Inside The Actors Studio because he doesn't think he's experienced enough.

Modest Pitt was invited by James Lipton to review his film career and discuss his acting methods on the Bravo program, when his blockbuster Troy came out this summer. According to American gossip site Pagesix.Com, Pitt said that he didn't have a "sufficient body of work".

--I gotta say this earns major points for him in my book. It seems as though he truly cares about the craft of acting, and less about the notariety that goes along with it.

The Bush women are giving up the provincial look for glitz. First Lady Laura Bush and daughters Barbara and Jenna — who wore inaugural gowns designed by Texan Michael Faircloth and family friend Lela Rose four years ago — want to wear Badgley Mischka to the January inaugural.

--Excellent choice, in my opinion.

Who's the Sexiest of them all?

Jude Law is the sexiest man alive? PLEASE! I strongly disagree with this decision.

I personally think he's creepy looking, and his role in The Road to Perdition affirmed that for me.

As for People's other choices: Orlando Bloom (not really), Jake Gyllenhaal (if you like guys that look 10 years old), Usher (don't like his ears, but he oozes sexy), Colin Farrell (too dirty for my taste, but sexy), Brad Pitt (when he's not too hairy, he's perfect--a la Ocean's 11), Matt Damon (not bad), Ben Affleck (eh, he's ok), Bruce Willis (definitely) and Johnny Depp (not if he was the last man alive). Hello? Where is Colin Firth? Where is Clooney?

Us Weekly named Jesse Metcalfe, who plays Eva Longoria's on-screen gardener on "Desperate Housewives," as the sexiest man on television. (Can't disagree there).
