The Talk of Tinseltown; Fast Cars & Golden Girls

Rue McClanahan, who played Blanche on the Golden Girls, is currently in the hospital after suffering a stroke. Betty White sent her flowers with a personal note.

"I hope you die, so I can be the last Golden Girl!"

Oh, that Betty White is such a character.


Do you love Paul Walker and Vin Diesel as much as I do? I'm guessing not, but I don't care. They've both signed on for a fifth movie in the Fast and Furious franchise. Laugh all you want, but I will be dragging The Hero to the theatre for this one. I love me some hot boys in fast cars.


The Los Angeles Police Department and District Attorney's office are currently arguing over whether or not to press charges against Michael Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray. If charged, Dr. Murray plans to surrender to police with a plea of not guilty. Yes, Michael Jackson had to know he was killing himself, but his doctor should be held accountable for his actions. He certainly shouldn't be allowed to practice medicine ever again.


The LAPD are currently searching for the individual who stole and crashed Charlie Sheen's car early this morning. Charlie received a call from OnStar alerting him to the crash. He told a reporter it was nice to have the police come to his house without having to leave with them. Charlie, I think it's a little too soon to be joking about pulling a knife on your wife.


An estimated 1.2 million copies of Michael Jackson's, This Is It, have been sold. This is believed to be a record for first-week sales of a music film. I totally bought a copy and made The Hero watch it with me.


Brittany Murphy's autopsy results were released to the public yesterday. The primary causes of death were pneumonia and severe anemia. She also had several legal drugs in her system which could have pushed her body to the brink. The coroner believes she would have lived had she seen a doctor.


Evangeline Lilly may retire from acting when Lost ends this season.

"Acting is something I appreciate, and I think it’s been an amazing experience, but I’m not passionate about acting the way you probably should be to call yourself an actor."

Well, ok then.

McMrs said...

So sad about Britney. =[

I love F&F.. all of them, well.. except maybe the Tokyo one. Just kidding.. HA!
I'll defiantly be seeing #5.

Shorty said...

I wonder if Brittany Murphy was just taking over the counter stuff to get better, mixing products.... Poor thing. I hate it that she's gone. At least her hubby can stop being accused of contributing to her death now.

Teri said...

Did Betty White really say that?? Lots going on this week! Have a great weekend.

Amber said...

Ah, the Golden Girls can make me so happy. I hope Rue will be okay!

So I'm in love with Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, you are definitely not the only one! We have all of the F&F movies and I've probably watched them a million times.

I'm glad they finally released her autopsy. Now maybe people will stop thinking that she committed suicide.

That "brought to you today by" pic made me literally lol!

Karen said...

I love Betty White!

And I totally have a girl-crush on Evangeline Lilly.

sarah said...

hmm well im glad to know the brittany murphy mystery wasn't the sad, illegal drug-induced ending many of us thought it might have been (i mean, she was REALLY thin...) but still, so sad to know she's gone now. she has been one of my favorites since "clueless"

Sera said...

Love me some Talk of Tinseltown. That is so sad about Brittany! I think it's good to have that closure though so people don't keep speculating. The Golden Girls crack me up - how hilarious to send a note like that. And your pic of GW and the baby is fricking awesome!

Michelle Hoad said...

Evangeline is so beautiful. If I was into girls, I would go for her. Aim high, I always say.

Kristina P. said...

Betty White is hilarious. She was on Kathy Griffin and she is a spitfire!

MiMi said...

Blanche had a stroke?? NO!!! I love the Golden Girls...
Paul Walker, YUM!
Michael Jackson...scary...
Brittany Murphy: SO SAD. And to know she would've been fine probably if she'd seen a Dr. Ugh.

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

ok, seriously. How have we not run into each other before today.

Golden Girls. A piece of my heart breaks off everytime one of those old bitches dies and/or hurts herself. I love them.

You reminded me that I have a Paul Walker encounter!! Not sure how I could have forgotten. Well, it is kinda different, maybe that's why.

And that picture of Brittany is so pretty.

Beck said...

I think Charlie Sheen somehow drunkenly crashed his own car and made it home in time to answer the call from On Star. It's just a little too coincidental for me that someone stole it from him. LOL

Ashley said...

It was definitely just her time to go... so sad. :(

I love me some Paul Walker, but really, give it up.

Much More Than Mommy said...

I agree with you about Charlie Sheen's attempt at humor -- bad timing!

Evangeline Lilly and Matthew Fox have both apparently said they're leaving TV after Lost. For her, now nice to be able to RETIRE AT AGE 30. And I wonder if they're just considering how difficult it'll be to get jobs after having such specific roles for so long, kwim?

Ed Adams said...

Your poor Hero.

It sounds as if you are trying to make him gay.

Amo said...

Betty While is hilarious. She is quite vulgar for being of the elderly sort. I love seeing her talk dirty on the various roasts on Comedy Central.

Salt said...

When Betty White goes it will be one of the darkest days of my life.

Charlie Sheen actually said that? I'm feeling an interesting mix of humor and disgust.

April said...

Betty White is the blonde version of my Italian grandma ... love them both!
Vin Diesel will be back for another round of The Fast and The Furious? My heart won't stop pounding ... Dom Toretto makes me hot!!

Danielle said...

Love your hollywood run down! I just added a "Celebgossip" section to my blog and I love writing about it.

Stoppin' by from SITS!

Lauren said...

I LOVE Paul Walker. He's my ultimate celebrity crush. I recently did a post where I featured a pic of him. You may want to stop by and check it out. And, noooo, I'm not enticing you to come visit my blog...

Stopping by from SITS. :)

LMAO....

First of all, I love Golden Girls, especially that Rose. The theme song is the ring tone for my best friend.

Love your signature..."George Bush and a crying baby." LOL.

Vising from SITS...Happy Sunday.
