Jen Wants More in Bed?

Jennifer Aniston says she keeps her marriage to Brad Pitt fresh by fantasising about swinging.

The Sun says Jennifer, 35, would let her 40-year-old husband bed Michelle Pfeiffer, 47.

But that would only be if she were allowed to bed 56-year-old Steven Tyler from Aerosmith.
---------------
She has Brad freakin' Pitt and she wants to get it on with Steven Tyler? Oh lord.

Scarlett's Sexual Encounters

We heard about Scarlett Johanssen getting freaky with Benicio del Toro in an elevator.

We heard about Scarlett shamelessly flirting with Heath Ledger and Naomi Watts dumping him for it.

Now there is a new tale in Scarlett's sexual revolution: girl on girl action. Some jaws dropped the other night when rising starlet Scarlett Johansson engaged in some heavy kissing. According to reports, Scarlett's lips were attacked by Imitation of Christ designer Tara Subkoff, who was possibly caught "imitating a lesbian" at the Maritime Hotel's Hiro bar.

Layover Treat


For those of you ever traveling through the Indianapolis airport: if you have some time, you should stop by the Indianapolis International Airport spa, called Passport.

Passport has been at the airport about two years and is the first outlet for a company started by a New York woman who travels a lot and wished she could find spa services in an airport.

It opened as a nail salon, but now provides a variety of services, including hairstyling and massage, said Laurel Fleming, on-site manager.

Buffyologist Conference


It's tough for scholars to be taken seriously when their subject is a TV show about a California blonde fighting evil in a high school built on a gateway to hell--Particularly when the title is as campy as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."

Buffyologists from as far away as Singapore were presenting 190 papers on topics ranging from "slayer slang" to "postmodern reflections on the culture of consumption" to "Buffy and the new American Buddhism."

I didn't even think that many people watched that show. Sounds like it has a Trekkie-like following.

I'm Connected

Broadcasting live from my new condo. Sorry for the blog delays--I haven't had internet for a few days! Every bone in my body hurts from my move. But, I'm so pumped. The place is so cute, if I do say so myself. Can't wait to entertain!

Brad and Jen Ditch "Troy"

Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt caused outrage at the Cannes Film Festival last week - by walking out of the official screening of his film "Troy" before it had started.

The 40-year-old actor got up and left the cinema with his Friends star wife Jennifer Aniston before the lights went down. A horrified witness says, "It is almost unprecedented not to watch your own film at Cannes. Their vacant seats did not go unnoticed".

Are there any rumors as to why they left?

Gay-Themed Reality Show Canned

Fox Television has dropped plans to air a controversial two-hour reality show where two straight men were to be shown competing for a $50,000 prize by trying to fool people -- including their close friends -- into thinking they're gay.

Fox President Gail Berman decided to pull "Seriously, Dude, I'm Gay" from the network's schedule following concerns raised by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.

If the substance was harmful, I'm glad it got canned. But, couldn't they have at least tried to pick a better title?

Quite a Change

From Manolos to chinos:

Sarah Jessica Parker tapped to be the Gap's new pitchwoman in print and TV ads through the rest of the year. It's the longest-running endorsement deal signed by the clothing manufacturer yet.

What would Carrie think?

Wedding Weight Watchers

A Hobart couple that plans to wed on Sept. 4 have been chosen to participate in "Dateline NBC's Bridal Weight Loss Challenge."

Courtney Prathaftakis, 22, a Rochester native, and her fiance, Nate Sass, 23, will try to lose weight with help from a sports doctor. Her goal is to lose 50 pounds, while he will try to lose 30.

NBC correspondent Sarah James interviews the brides. NBC will air a show in late November or early December on the participants' weddings and their weight loss.

Prathaftakis and Sass both weighed in at 228 pounds at the start. They have begun working out for a couple months and have joined Weight Watchers.
---------
This isn't too surprising since I remember reading a while back that Indiana is one of the top 5 most obese states. Good luck to the couple!

You Know You've Made It When...

...you're waxed.

The former Destiny's Child is featured next to fellow singers Kylie Minogue and Britney Spears for the new exhibit which allows visitors to get up on stage and give their best Kylie, Britney or Beyonce impersonation.

Broadway Update


Laura Linney got rave reviews for her Broadway performance last night in "Sight Unseen."

Says the reviewer: Even when "Sight Unseen" seems a little slight or muddled, there's Linney to pull it out of the mud and set it straight again. If you're coming to New York in the next few weeks, this is a must-see production.

I can't wait to see her in her new movie, "Kinsey." She co-stars with Liam Neeson in Bill Condon's movie about sexpert doctors.

I honestly think she is one of THE most talented actresses out there today. I loved her in "The Truman Show," "Love Actually," "The Life of David Gale," "Primal Fear," "You Can Count on Me," and the list goes on and on. She keeps me enraptured from the moment she's on screen. I only hope I can someday see her on stage as well.

Bar Review

Thoughts on my bar review session today:

The speaker looked like a young Hume Cronyn--like when he was in "Shadow of a Doubt." The speaker also kept pronouncing "possessory" as "puh-sess-er-ar-y." It was annoying.

Brief Invention

This week's most unique invention award goes to: The Brief Safe


The "Brief Safe" is an innovative new diversion safe that can secure your cash, documents, and other small valuables from inquisitive eyes and thieving hands, both at home and when you're traveling.

Items can be hidden right under their noses with these specially-designed briefs which contain a fly-accessed 4" x 10" secret compartment with Velcro closure and "special markings" on the lower rear portion.

Leave the "Brief Safe" in plain view in your laundry basket or washing machine at home, or in your suitcase in a hotel room - even the most hardened burgler or most curious snoop will "skid" to a screeching halt as soon as they see them. (Wouldn't you?) To add realistic smell, check out "Doo Drops."

Hat tip to Geoffrey.

The Return of Andy Kaufman?

I found the following over at Waiting for the Punchline:

Andy Kaufman, as some would have you believe, is alive and well. The comic claimed that he would fake his own death and return 20 years later, which would have been May 16th of this year.

An Andy Kaufman Returns blog has appeared, hosted of course by Blogspot. The blog claims that the author is the real Andy Kaufman and has various posts claiming that he has been confirmed by a DNA test. Yet, the obvious question "why don't you go on national TV to prove it" is dismissed by saying that he wants to remain on a more personal and intimate level. He says to look for him at Wal-Marts and Starbucks around the country and to contact local media when you do.

I'm skeptical. What do you guys think? Is he dead or alive?

Germy Ties

Doctors may be unwittingly spreading infections through their ties, warn US researchers. The New York Hospital Queens team found nearly half of the ties worn by medical workers harboured disease-causing bacteria.

Almost half (47.6%) of the ties worn by clinicians were found to harbour bacteria that can cause disease.

Open Wide

Cyndi Lauper was reaching for a high note during her opening number at Saturday's KISS-108-sponsored concert in Mansfield, Mass., when from the sky came a white glob of bird poop.

The fecal critique landed in her open mouth.

Maybe birds just wanna have fun.
