The Talk of Tinseltown
Botox, Butts + Alaska

The director of the Austin Powers films said Mike Myers is currently working on a fourth installment. Am I the only one who doesn't care? I loved Mike on SNL, but never could get into Austin Powers.

Vice President, Joe Biden, was a little excited by the recent passing of the Health Care Bill. He hugged President Obama and said, "This is a big f*cking deal." Some people are upset by this. Yes, he should have known better than to drop the f-bomb in front of microphones, the press and a live television audience. However, he's human and some moments require colorful language.

I know I'm not the only one who wanted to yell out "HOLY SH!T" when Taylor Lautner took off his shirt in New Moon, right? Right.

Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel have confirmed they're starring in a Garry Marshall remake of the classic tv show, Laverne and Shirley. Jamie Foxx is writing the script. I don't necessarily mind a remake of an old tv show, but don't think Jessica Biel and Jennifer Garner are the right choices at all. Are they funny enough? We shall see.

Katherine Heigl is finally leaving Grey's Anatomy. The actress has wanted out of her contract for some time. She said everyone worked hard to find an amicable way of letting her go. Katherine and her husband recently adopted a baby girl. She wants to work less so she can spend more time at home with her family.

The Discovery Channel has acquired rights to an eight-episode show tentatively titled "Sarah Palin's Alaska" which will air on TLC. Sarah's reportedly getting $1 million an episode. Will you watch? I will not. I'd rather tune in to Chelsea Lately to hear her thoughts on Mrs. Palin's show.

Kate Gosselin reportedly spent $35,000 on a makeover for Dancing with the Stars. She is said to have received Botox injections, Restylane fillers, laser resurfacing, veneers, hair extensions and highlights, eyelash extensions and eyebrow shaping. This doesn't include the cost of her regular spray tans and professional makeup applications. Why would anyone vote for her? What a tv whore!

Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush have broken up again. Kim will be ok. I don't think her ass can be without a man for long. As long as the breakup doesn't effect Kim's ShoeDazzle business, I'm good.

Victoria's Secret recently celebrated the 15th anniversary of their swimsuit catalog.

Ed and Jay, you're welcome.

Zach Braff confirmed the cancellation of Scrubs on his Facebook page. This is another story I don't care anything about. Scrubs wasn't funny.

The Talk of Tinseltown was brought to you today by...

Natalie Portman


Kristina P. said...

I didn't even know Scrubs was still on!

Stacy said...

Austin Powers went downhill after the sequel. That one with Beyonce sucked balls, and now a 4th? I doubt I'll go see it. And why remake Laverne & Shirley at all!? It's such an old show! And I agree with you on the choices - not right AT ALL!

Macey said...

I'm with Kristina!
And why does it look like he's wearing purple frosty lipstick in that picture?

meredith said...

i could and will never like austin powers. not really my thing.

freakin' LOVE joe b.'s public gaffs.

poor kimmy k. reg doesn't isn't ready to put a ring on it.

Nikosmommy said...

Kim K. is banging! If drinking fruity bevies at the beach makes a girl look like that then count me in?! Reggie's loss anyway..who wouldn't want to 'tap that'?!
And if J.Biden drops the f-bomb so what! You're right he is human and he was stoked. Nothing wrong with that!!

Ed said...

Nice. Thanks. Now I have to hobble around work the rest of the day.

bingham 5 said...

I would rather watch Penny Marshall again as Laverne any day - Jessica Biel is ugh as an actress - assuming she would be Laverne, of course

Mrs. M said...

I stopped watching Scrubs a long time used to be funny!

Salt said...

Oh jeez I thought Scrubs was cancelled years ago.
And there are FOUR Austin Powersesses now? I stopped paying attention after the first one, which I didn't really find all that funny.

And no you definitely weren't the only one that yelled HOLY SH!T when Taylor took his shirt off.

Olivia Carter said...

I didn't know Scrubs was still on either. And I dig that picture of Natalie Portman- it's nice to see beautiful people not looking beautiful.


It makes my day.

Ashley Pepitone said...

I love your blog so very very much.

And I want Kim Kardashian's body please. Gah.

Anywho, I tagged you today, so please come have a lookie!

Dezzy Lou Where Are You said...

It WAS a big f'n deal
I also loathe Scrubs, never have I ever found it even somewhat funny.

Karen M. Peterson said...

I will watch every episode of Sarah Palin's show. :-)

I loved a couple of years of Scrubs. The last season blew chunks.

L.J. Diva said...

Who gives a crap about ANOTHER Austin Powers???

Does anybody REALLY give a crap that Joe Biden said big fucking deal. He didn't say it into the mic, he didn't say it to anyone BUT Barack, he didn't say it ABOUT anyone so why is everyone making it a big fucking deal!!!!!

Do we REALLY need another Laverne and Shirly????

As for Katherine Heigel she needed to leave at the end of last season with TR Knight. I've had a gutful of her and it looks like everyone else has too.

Kate Gosslein, WHO GIVES A SHIT!!!
NO ONE!!!!! But she seems to think people love her. THEY DON'T!!!!

MrsDixon said...

I prefer Chelsea Handler's comments as well! Good Call!!!

Emma said...

The Austin Powers thing is about two hours past it's fifteen minutes. Way to beat a dead horse, Mike.

I'm kinda outraged by all these remakes. First the Karate Kid and now this? I'm boycotting Hollywood until someone stops the insanity. Hrmph!

Anonymous said...

Yes, not sure about Biel and Garner being the "funny" choice, but I am up for a Biel fest, I have such a crush on that woman.
and NOOOOOOO how could you say scrubs isn't funny...
*weeps rocking in a corner*...
that show saved my LIFE!

Love you Blog, will totally be back.

Love ND.

See Mom Smile said...

Don't care about Austin Powers.

Kate Gosslin needs to raise her kids and shut up.

I loooove Jenifer Garner. And I love Jenifer Biel in Valentines. Hope the movie is good.

Vanessa said...

Bleah to a new Austin -- I didn't care for the 2nd and didn't even see the 3rd. The Jennifers are adorable but Laverne and Shirley were whiny and physically funny, don't know if The Jens can pull that off.

Mel said...

Forgive my South African ignorance but who is the grey haired guy taking up space where I thought you would put a PIC OF TAYLORS ABS????! :-)

G said...

kimmy k feeds my need for slut long hair.

Amber said...

So I did actually say "Holy Shit!" when Taylor took off his shirt. Couldn't contain myself...maybe Biden could not contain himself either.

Love Jennifer Garner, not Jessica Biel and I do not think they should make a show together!

Scrubs is pretty lame.

I'm with you on the Sarah Palin show. Cannot wait to see what Chelsea says about that!

Kim is effin hot. There's no doubt that they will end up back together again before long or she will find some other hot guy soon.

Ok...I'm done!

I am Harriet said...

I so agree with you on the Laverne and Shirley thing. The good thing about Sarah is that she'll stay out of politics.

Stopping by via SITS to say hello.
Have a great day!

Unknown said...

Okay, first off-Was I not supposed to yell Holy Shit in the theater? (actually I did say "OOwwwww!!" really loud. My husband just looked at me and shook his head!)

On to Kate....for $35k, I could have made myself look a little better.

Ahem, like looking like Kim. I don't have a girl crush or anything, cuz I think the girl's a wench but I would do anything to have her body.

$35k could get me started on it, at least......

McVal said...

I think Jenn and Jess are way too glamorous for Laverne and Shirley. We'll see. New generation entirely..

Kelly @ turned UP to ELEVEN! said...

I used to love Scrubs but I don't know after a while it got to be the same thing.. different day. Speaking of Medical drama - I wish Katherine WOULD go home, be a mother to her new child and leave Tinseltown alone (not a fan, at all, like not in the least).

I'm totally guilty of loving Austin Powers so yes, I'm excited about this news.

L & S - I'd say that Jennifer's got the goods but I'm not sold on Jessica... we shall see. I like that they are remaking this show though. TV show remake movies don't bug me, it's when they remake movies - then I get annoyed. The whole talks about Overboard being remade with J-Lo as the lead makes me ill!


Kate, seriously? Who is paying for this mess? And are her kids eating right now??? I'm all for mom's having fun, but that is crazy. SO over her!

I always love your tinseltown tidbits!!! ox

Karisa Tells All said...

I love your celeb news roundup! I didn't hear about the new Austin Powers movie--it will probably be terrible, but I'd watch it anyway! Mike Myers hasn't done anything funny since he awkwardly stood next to Kanye West on live TV after he said "George Bush doesn't care about black people." This could revitalize his career (yeah probably not)!

Baby Sweetness said...

Yeah, I kind of forgot about Scrubs. I liked it at first but it is 8000 miles beyond jumping the shark!

Unknown said...

I try not to hate...but Kate Gosselin- well, she drives me Crazy. With a capital C! such a great post!

A Real Housewife said...

i also think the fact the jamie fox is writing the show from a "hard knock life" perspective just doesn't make sense for laverne and shirley...

Jenny Brown said...

Thanks for the rundown........I'm not a big fan of Austin Powers, and not a big fan of Sarah Palin (ever since she JUST quit being a govener and all), I can't quite think of 'those 2' being the next Laverne and Shirley....but we'll have to see. And I am so sick of hearing about Kate G. that I could vomit.............

Stopping by from SITS!
