The Talk of Tinseltown; Desperate Housewives & Designing Women

Private detectives have found conclusive proof that Olivia Newton John's former boyfriend, Patrick McDermott, is alive. McDermott was originally presumed dead after disappearing off a fishing boat in 2005. However, many believed he faked his own death because he was largely in debt.


Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey have ended their 5-year relationship. I really hate it because I liked them together.


Michael Lohan proposed to his girlfriend, Kate Major. Kate dated Jon Gosselin for a minute. Is this girl desperate for fame, mentally unstable or both?


The secret script for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was found in a bar in Hertfordshire, England after the crew went out for some celebratory drinks. It was quite the surprise for the honest man who found the script. It has since been returned to Warner Bros. studios. Executives are investigating how the script could have been left behind. Why would anyone need to carry the script to the bar in the first place?


Gloria Allred and Tiger Woods' kindergarten teacher, Maureen Decker, held a press conference asking for an apology from the golf pro. Woods stated in Charles Barkley's 2005 book that Ms. Decker "didn't do much of anything" when a group of 6th graders tied him to a tree, spray-painted the word n***er on him and threw rocks at him on his first day of kindergarten. Ms. Decker says no such incident ever occurred. If this didn't happen, why didn't she come out five years ago when the book was released? I smell an attention whore.


Nicollette Sheridan is suing Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry for $20 million. In the lawsuit, Sheridan claims Cherry physically assaulted her after she questioned him about something in the script. According to the lawsuit, "Cherry took her aside and forcefully hit her with his hand across her face and head." Sheridan says she immediately reported the incident to ABC, but they failed to take action. She also states she was killed off the show unfairly. If this is true, Mr. Cherry needs to have a few housewives get desperate on his ass.


Designing Women star Dixie Carter died on Saturday at the age of 70. Her publicist declined to disclose the cause of death. She leaves behind her actor husband, Hal Holbrook, and two daughters.

Sucks to be Mr McDermott if thats really true!

That really bums me out about Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy. They were so cute!

For reals, though, why the eff would they need to carry the HP script around with them? Someone's getting firedddd!

Baby Sweetness said...

ok, I think the Jenny McCarthy / Jim Carrey thing is sad too. And I'm sad for me for thinking it's sad...

Weird about Tiger Woods' teacher, but... I don't mean to be an idiot, but we're talking about 1980 or so, right? Wouldn't being tied to a tree and spray painted lead to a police report? (It's not 1960.) I'm about the same age as Tiger and feel like if that happened in my school (admittedly in the NE, so maybe it depends where he's from),there would be some permanent record at the school. Call me an idiot, but I feel like this is fairly easy to validate? But yeah, not sure why now instead of 5 years ago.

Amy Winehouse is so freaking weird!

I haven't had a chance to read any gossip this week, so I'm glad you're here! I didn't know that her boyfriend was definitively found alive.

Cathy said...

All good stuff. Too bad about that Harry Potter actor with the red hair, what's his name? Rupert something. He's not cute.

Salt said...

Oh my gosh how much older does Hermione look then the other two little boys from Harry Potter? They look like a couple of teenage fanboys next to her!

I'm so sad about Jim and Jenny! I loved them together too. I'm also sad about whatever it is that he's wearing in that picture.

I swear when I read about Dixie Carter yesterday I felt as if I had lost one of my own family members. I read this morning Mr. Holbrook said she passed away in a Houston hospital from complications from endometrial cancer. So sad. I choose to believe we all have a little Julia Sugarbaker in us.

Victoria said...

I loved Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy together :( And oh MAN is that picture of Amy Winehouse hilarious!

MiMi said...

Sads about Dixie!! :(
Look at Herione! Holy hottness batman! Makes her two costars look like trolls. LOL

Stacey said...

I hate that Jim and Jenny broke up, too!

Michael Lohan and Kate Majors?? Ewww!!! Has she not heard anything about this guy?! Course I don't care about her either.

Sad about Dixie Carter.

Amy Winehouse = Freak!

Dezzy Lou Where Are You said...

can you imagine if your boyfriend faked his death? Id feel like he did it to break up with me, I wonder if she was in on the secret?

Much More Than Mommy said...

I didn't know about Dixie Carter until now. :-(

Karen said...

I heard Jenny McCarthy still loves Jim Carrey a lot and only broke up with him because she couldn't handle his severe, unmedicated depression. I totally understand that one.

The Nicolette Sheridan situation is a weird one. If it really happened, why is this the first anyone has heard about it? She was killed off the show an entire year ago.

Patricks.. DUH!
I'm so sad to hear about Jim & Jen. :(

Florida Girl Meets the Midwest said...

So sad to hear about Dixie Carter. I grew up with Designing Women.

Side note: Poor old Amy Winehouse can't get a break.

Happy Belated Birthday! And yes, we all love you.

McMrs said...

Want some facts on Oliva and the now gone boyfriend. She was here in Australia at a friend's birthday party when he disappeard, and they had already broken up. She faked her tears and shit and still carries on with it even though she married some other guy, so she wasn't too cut up over him leaving. And he didn't fake his own death, he merely left his life behind, I wish people would know the differnece the reporters keep saying he faked his death, he DIDN'T HE JUST LEFT THE STUPID BITCH.

Michael Lohan has a girlfriend? She clearly didn't think too much of Jon Gosslein.

Tiger's kindy teacher, GET A FUCKING LIFE YOU STUPID BITCH!!!! The book came out 5 fucking years ago and you want an apology,WHAT FUCKING FOR?????????????????

Desperate Housewives, does anyone watch that anymore?

Dixie Carter, I loved her in Designing Women.

Me (aka Danielle) said...

I hadn't heard about Olivia's boyfriend.

And seriously, the Lohans. Never a dull moment!

Nikosmommy said...

Its hard to believe anything Nicollette Sheridan says,,,I mean I can't help but thinking that she's just like her bitchy characters that she always plays. Marc Cherry always seems like a happy, rollie pollie little gay man. Who really knows the truth?
P.S. Amy Wino is a troll, no?!

Ashley said...

That is a horrible picture of Amy Winehouse. Yikes! I wouldn't want to cross that!

Hillary said...

I feel so ehhh about it all.

Sad about Jim and Jenny.

Michael Lohan is so trashy, and obviously so is the new fiance.

Nicole Sheridan..don't know if I buy that from her?

Amy Winehouse gives me nightmares ;)

Carly said...

Concord Carpenter said...

MrsDixon said...

This photo of Amy Winhouse has me rolling on the floor! Too funny!!!

Date Girl said...

Awww I agree, Jim and Jen made a good pair. He was so good with her son too.
:-( maybe they'll reconnect.

I really miss Edie from Desperate Hwifes. I don't like the replacement at all!!
