DeVito Still Welcome on "The View"

Today, Joy behar said it was apparent that DeVito was as "drunk as a skunk." Barbara Walters says DeVito is welcome to return to The View whenever he wants. "We love him. We'll have him on again," Walters said. She also added that DeVito left her a message after her appearance, but the two had yet to talk.

Peace Wreath Called Symbol of Satan

A Colorado woman is being vilified for hanging a Christmas wreath in the shape of a peace sign. Lisa Jensen and her husband hung the wreath on their home back on November 15 and are being told to take it down by the homeowners association. They say they've gotten three or four complaints from people who say the sign is insensitive to the soldiers in Iraq and should be taken down. What's even more insane: some say it's a symbol of Satan! It's a freggin peace symbol.

The homeowners association is going to fine Jensen $25 a day for each day the wreath stays up. Jensen says that should add up to $1,000, but she doubts they will be able to force her to pay.

"I honestly wasn't thinking of the Iraq war. Peace is way bigger than not being at war. This is a spiritual thing. I am not going to take it down until after Christmas. Now that it has come to this, I feel I can't get bullied. What if they don't like my Santa Claus?" she said.

Jensen says she's gotten plenty of support for her wreath, which she says was a biblical call for peace and goodwill toward men.

What the hell is wrong with people? With all the insanity that's going on in this world, they have to pick on innocent people who are trying to do some good. She oughta cover her house with these wreaths and ship a couple to the White House while she's at it!

Goodnight, Friend! Nancy Grace Smacked With A Lawsuit

Over-the-top CNN talk show host Nancy Grace may not be able to stomach any turkey tomorrow. That's because she's been slapped with a lawsuit by a couple that says she's to blame for the death of their daughter. Melinda Duckett committed suicide shortly after appearing on Grace's CNN Headline News show in September. The wrongful-death lawsuit accuses Grace and her producers of luring Duckett onto the show by misrepresenting their intentions to help find her missing 2-year-old son, Trenton. Instead, the lawyer for Duckett's parents says Grace harshly implied that she killed her only child. Police have since labeled Duckett as the prime suspect in the child's disappearance. CNN Headline News has released a statement saying, "We stand by Nancy Grace and fully support her, as we have from the beginning of this matter."

American Music Awards 2006

Britney Spears has made her very first very public appearance since she kicked K-Hole to the curb. She presented the first award on the American Music Awards tonight. She has lost a bunch of weight and is starting to look like the old Britney, but she was still chomping on gum. You can take the girl out of the trailer park but you can't take the trailer park out of the girl. Lose the freakin' gum!

Some commentary on the big show:

Clay vs. Ripa vs. Rosie

Kelly Ripa is angry with Clay Aiken for the way he behaved when he co-hosted "Regis & Kelly" last Friday. As they spoke to the winners of "Dancing With The Stars," Aiken put his hand over Kelly's, mouth when she was talking. Kelly told Clay, "I don't know where that hand has been." Yesterday, Ripa told Reege that she did not appreciate having her mouth covered, saying Clay was "disrespectful."

The story would have ended there, but now Rosie O'Donnell is butting in with some ridiculous comments of her own. On this morning's "The View," O'Donnell accused Ripa of being homophobic for saying she didn't know where Clay's hand had been. O'Donnell said Ripa would have never said that if Aiken were straight. Ripa heard O'Donnell's comments and immediately called into the show to set the record straight, calling O'Donnell's words "outrageous" and "irresponsible." Someone should tell Rosie that that: A. Clay continues to deny his sexuality and B. her comments had nothing to do with sexuality, Kelly just didn't want to be disrespected by Clay Aiken on her own show. Rosie O'Donnell should be ashamed for even bringing the topic of sexuality up.

The man who once played Kramer on "Seinfeld" is in some real-life trouble for going on a racial rant during a comedy show. Richards went on a racial slur-filled tirade against some African American hecklers at the Laugh Factory in West Hollywood Friday night. One of the men says he was just playfully heckling Richards during his routine when he lost it. "Fifty years ago we'd have you upside down with a fucking fork up your ass." As the crowd grew uncomfortable, Rohcards continued his comments. "Throw his ass out. He's a nigger! He's a nigger! He's a nigger! A nigger, look, there's a nigger," screamed Richards. One of the men yelled back, "That's un-fucking called for, ain't necessary."

The whole thing was caught on camera and can be seen on

Conveniently enough, Jerry Seinfeld was a guest on the "Late Show with David Letterman" tonight. During the interview, Michael Richards appeared via satellite to apologize for his comments. "I am not a racist. That's what is so insane about this," Richards said. Some of the audience thought this was all a joke at first, laughing at Richards. Seinfeld told them, "Stop laughing. It's not funny." Richards had an odd explanation, saying his feelings stemmed from "a great deal of disturbance between blacks and whites after Hurricane Katrina, but said he was "deeply sorry" for his remarks.

O.J. Book and TV Show CANCELLED!

The O.J. Simpson TV interview and book, "If I Did It," have both been cancelled by Newscorp. Rupert Murdoch called it an "ill-considered project" and apologized to the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson. The cancellation came after a dozen FOX affiliates said that they would not air the sweeps stunt and some bookstores pulled out of selling the book. Ron Goldman's father, Fred, and sister, Kim, appeared on "Larry King Live" tonight and praised the American public for responding to the interview. "Whatever he does to glorify his crime is not going to be well-received," Fred Goldman said.

Now the question becomes, what will happen to the footage from the TV special? While no one in their right mind would air it now, will some cable network or show buy the interview once all the dust has settled? Couldn't you just see this on "The Insider" during May sweeps next year? "It's the interview everyone was talking about. You thought it would never air. Until now. O.J Speaks. Only on The Insider."

Junk Food Ads Banned in the UK

Homer Simpson better hide his donuts! The UK is banning all television ads for foods that are high in fat, salt or sugar during kids programming. Ofcom, which sets television standards in the UK, doesn't want kids getting fat on their watch. Ofcom’s new restrictions ban junk food ads “in and around all programs of particular appeal to children under the age of 16 broadcast at any time of day or night.” Ofcom also will ban the use of celebrities or licensed characters, like cartoon figures, from kids ads and product placements. Source: Broadcasting & Cable

When are people going to realize that kids will continue eating junk food whether or not it's served in schools or advertised on television? It's part of being a kid. Yet another example of outside forces stepping in to enforce good parenting.

Tina Fey Slams Paris Hilton

Former "Saturday Night Live" writer Tina Fey appeared on Howard Stern this morning to talk about all her years on the show. Fey said Paris Hilton was one of the worst guests ever. "She's a piece of shit," Fey said. No surprise, Fey said Paris acted like a diva on the set, refusing skits that she didn't want to do. Fey also claimed that members of the staff would find clumps of Paris' hair all over the place. "She looked like a tranny close up," Fey said.

Fey also talked about her dealings with sensitive celebrities. She said she once got a call from Mike Myers after she wrote a joke about him. He didn't get the joke and "bitched" her out. Fey says she's happy going "30 Rock" right now, but says she would be open to returning to "SNL" as a writer if the show doesn't make it.

Goldman's Outraged With New OJ Book/Interview

O.J. Simpson just continues to disgust. More than a decade after he got off on charges he killed his wife, Nicole, and friend, Ron Goldman, Simpson has written a Book called "If I Did It." The book and an accompanying TV interview on FOX discuss how he would have killed them IF he did it. Just sickening.

Ron Goldman's father, Fred, and sister, Kim, appeared on Larry King Live tonight, saying they are disgusted with these latest developments. Ron says he hopes no one will watch the interview or buy the book. Simpson is reportedly making $3.5 million off the book and Goldman doubts he'll see a penny of the money. Goldman went on to call O.J. a "son of a b" who should "rot in hell." Both say they are not sure if they'll watch the show, which airs at the end of sweeps later this month. "He makes my skin crawl. He's a digusting despicable person...He's a murderer. A wife-beater. He's a sick, narcissistic sociopath," Goldman said.

Goodbye Shea Stadium

Say goodbye to another baseball classic. The Mets' Shea Stadium has been bought by Citibank and will be rebuilt and renamed Citi Field. It would be one thing if it was City Field, but it's not. It's Citi Field. These corporate assholes. It's not enough for corporations to buy all these landmarks, they have to give them shitty name changes to benefit themselves everytime. Boston Garden became the Fleetcenter and is now the TD Banknorth Garden. The Providence Civic Center in Rhode Island is now the Dunkin Donuts Center. Real catchy. Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park are of the few, non-corporate named stadiums left and let's hope it stays that way.

The Departed

With a stellar cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, Martin Sheen and Mark Wahlberg there's no way this movie could fail. And it didn't. Martin Scorsese out does himself in this intense, edgy, and brilliantly imaginitive crime drama.

Jack Nicholson stars as notorious Irish-American mob boss Frank Costello. To keep an eye on police activity, he has one of his mobsters (Damon) rise in the ranks of the Massachusetts State Police. All the while, a young cop (DiCaprio) goes undercover to expose the dealings of the mob. The two work against each other, until their paths finally cross in a dramatic end.

"The Departed" is a crime drama, but there are plenty of laughs, especially from Nicholson's streetwise, yet likable character. Scorsese's sense of humor shows in the final scene which appropriately features a rat. The Oscar-worthy acting paired with the fast-paced, good cop/bad cop plot will keep you glued to this movie. One of the best of the year.

Borat on The Tonight Show

Whoever books the guests on "The Tonight Show" has a great sense of humor. Last night's show featured Borat and Martha Stewart. Of course, the unlikely pairing made for some hilarious television. After interviewing Borat, Martha came out and presented him with a bottle of wine. Borat asked her if she wanted to get him drunk. Then, they headed over for a how-to segment where Martha was going to show people how to make a bed. Borat thought the bed was for "sexy time" and thanked Jay Leno for hooking him up with Martha. As Martha tried to demonstrate perfect bed-making, Borat grabbed the sheet, took his pants off and got in bed. He then took his underwear off before the show went to break. What made this work so perfectly was that the normally all-business Martha Stewart had a sense of humor and went along with the joke. Just a classic show.

Ed Bradley Dies

Legendary journalist Ed Bradley has died. Bradley earned an amazing 19 Emmy's awards during his career in journalism. The charasmatic "60 Minutes" correspondent died of leukemia this morning at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital. He was 65 years old.

Bradley appeared healthy during an appearance on the CBS News just weeks ago where he promoted his interview with the Duke lacrosse players accused of rape. Bradley won at least one of every major journalism award over his career, which had taken him from the floor of every Republican and Democratic convention from 1976 through 1996. He had only recently learned that he was not to play a part in this week's midterm election-night coverage, which friends said had jarred him. Howard Sterns fans will remember the shock jock cried when Bradley brought him back to his hometown during an interview. Bradley spent an incredible 26 years on "60 Minutes." The show and the world of journalism won't be the same without this dedicated journalist.

Rumsfeld Resigns

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has stepped down after serving the longest term of any Bush cabinet member. Rumsfeld was part of the administration for six years, despite continued criticism of his handling of the war in Iraq. President Bush has selected former CIA Director Robert Gates to replace him.

Rumsfeld's resignation comes just a day after midterm elections where Democrats won big. They have recaptured the House of the Senate. In Massachusetts, Democrat Deval Patrick grabbed more than half the vote, making him the first African American governor of the state. Patrick is only the second black governor in the history of the United States. Republican and former actor Arnold Schwarzenegger was re-elected as the governor of California and Joe Lieberman will remain a Connecticut senator after running as an independent.

It was only a matter of time. Britney Spears has finally smartened up and is divorcing loser husband Kevin Federline. Spears is asking for legal custody of both their children, one-year-old Sean Preston and two-month-old Jayden James. Looks like Kevin is going to get a real job because they had an iron-clad prenup which means he's not getting any money. Spears gives the date of separation as yesterday, the same day she made a surprise appearance on David Letterman. The reason for the divorce: "a string of events." Many say this may pave the way for a big Britney comeback.

To say "Borat" is the funniest movie of the year would not be giving it enough credit. The full title of the moviefilm is "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan." Just like its big title, this movie is big on laughs.

The film focuses on Sacha Baron Cohen's character Borat Sagdiyev. The journalist is the pride of his homeland of Kazakhstan because he's going to America to make a documentary for his country. Borat packs up his clothes and chicken and leaves behind his nasty wife and slum town for the U-S-and-A. He first stops off in New York City where he can't believe how how large is hotel room is. While getting his first taste of America television, Borat comes upon a repeat of "Baywatch" and falls in love with Pam Anderson. He decides he must travel cross country to find her and marry her.

The movie focuses on Borat's journey across the country (in an ice cream truck) and the crazy people we meets along the way. Feminists. Deep south Bush-lovers. Frat boys. Politicians. Evangelicals. Since Borat is from another world, he is not aware of American customs and tries to learn from people along the way. Many of these people thought they were talking to a real Kazakhstani journalist, which makes this movie all the funnier.

I am going to keep this review rather nebulous because I don't want to spoil the comic genious of this movie for those who have not seen it. Let's just say, I am someone who is not easily amused when I go to the movies. "Borat" had me in tears less than 30 seconds after its start. Borat's encounters with everyday Amercans are not only jaw-droppingly hysterical, but also thought-provoking. Yes, it is very politcally incorrect, but that's what makes this one of the funniest movies ever. "Borat" exceeded all the hype, making it the funniest movie of the year.

WeekEnder: October 29-November 4

"Entertainment Tonight" and "The Insider" managed to score the first interview with Anna Nicole Smith and are screwing it up big time. The sister shows share a big story every sweeps month. Ealier this year, it was Tanya Harding and the Buttafuocos. For November sweeps, ET's Mark Steines and THE INSIDER's Lara Spencer flew to the Bahamas to talk to Anna Nicole for the first time since her son died unexpectedly.

Instead of devoting entire shows to what could have been a very interesting interview, they're exploiting Anna Nicole's pain by stretching the interview out over several days and teasing it endlessly. This super-saturation is as tasteless as it is boring. Each show is calling their interview an "exclusive." If more than one show has it, it can't be an exclusive. Looks like Anna Nicole made out best on this one. Rumor has it she was paid as much as $1 million for the semi-exclusive.

The interview itself is just plain depressing. Anna Nicole constantly breaks down as she leans on Howard K. Stern. She says if not for Stern and her new baby, she would not want to be alive. Smith also says that she worries about whether or not her son is lost without her on the other side.

Kanye West: Still A Sore Loser

Rapper Kanye West is proving what a sore loser he is yet again. This time he crashed the stage at the MTV Europe Awards in Copenhagen Thursday because he was so disappointed that he did not win for Best Video. In a tirade full of expletives, Kanye said he should have won the prize for his video "Touch The Sky," because it "cost a million dollars, Pamela Anderson was in it. I was jumping across canyons." "If I don't win, the awards show loses credibility," Kanye said. All this even though he had already won the Best Hip Hop award earlier in the night.

This is not the first time West has gone on a tirade. Remember his "George Bush hates black people" comments during the Hurricane Katrina telethon? He also got upset at the American Music Awards back in 2004 when he lost the Best New Artist Award to Gretchen Wilson. He went on a rant against the music industry, saying he was the best new artist of the year. Good grief! Everytime this guy opens his mouth, he shows people what an arrogant loon he is. Seems Kanye only had one single that really took off from his last album. Maybe if his music was better he'd win more awards.

Boston Radio Host Fired

Boston talk radio host John DePetro has been fired from WRKO radio for a comment he made about a gubernatorial candidate. Yesterday, he called Green-Rainbow party candidate Grace Ross a "fat lesbian" on his morning show. Today, he was fired. While Grace Ross does appear overweight and is openly gay, the station says the context and tone of what he said made the statement inappropriate. DePetro says he's "stunned" that he was fired and called Ross to apologize. This wasn't the first time he made a controversial comment about someone's sexuality. In July, he called former Mass Turnpike chairman Matt Amorello a "fag." After that, DePetro was warned that any similar comment would be dealt with in a severe way...and it was.

Military Fires Back At Kerry

Some militarymen are responding to John Kerry's comments with this hilarious picture. The politician angered many when he suggested that U.S. troops are not educated, so these guys fired back with the above banner. Kerry has since apologized for his remarks, saying they were a joke against president Bush gone wrong. However, many are saying it's too little too late for Kerry. This may be the final nail in his campaign 2008 coffin.
