‘Tis a noble effort, Alec Baldwin, to dedicate your time to the responsibilities of being on the board of the Brooke Jackman Foundation, a non-profit that promotes literacy for at-risk children in NYC. Sometimes the best kind of giving back doesn’t involve donating money or showing up to a charity gala, but creatively finding a way to donate your abilities towards a common good.
So when the Foundation asked you, Alec Baldwin, a man respected by children everywhere, for suggested summer reading material, we’re sure that you put the utmost care and consideration into your two choices. That’s why we encourage all kids–actual kids and those just young at heart–to download Little House on the Prairie and Walter the Farting Dog on Kindle today.
“Bret is such a liar!” Jay McInerney said fondly of his old friend. It was Wednesday night, and we were chatting across the table during a dinner the author had co-hosted with Janna Bullock. Mr. McInerney was referring to our query about the infamous tweet of his friend Bret Easton Ellis, who had implied they the two literary brat packers had once ‘almost’ had a threesome with John Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter.
FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION
Pippa Middleton—the sister-in-law of Prince William of England, and the sister of Kate Middleton, who is a goddamn princess, literally—is supposedly considering a move, possibly to New York City. She’s been missing from the London social circuit, her royal handlers are referring to her as the “Pippa Problem” for her hard-partying ways, and a move to Paris is likely nixed following an incident involving a French aristocrat she was with pointing a gun at a paparazzo.
She should move to Brooklyn. This is why:
We were a little put out after watching the pilot for NBC’s “hit new show(tm)” Smash and finding out that not once in the entire first episode did Anjelica Huston throw a glass of fluid in someone’s face.
The previews for the show had lied to us, because we distinctly remember an entire commercial dedicated to what looked like a super-cut of her character, Broadway producer Eileen Rand, splashing people (usually her ex-husband) like she was on a really classy version of Punk’d. Luckily, the subsequent two episodes have had a lot more pizzazz. Look at that guy’s face! Every time! Womp-womp!
Well, someone just saw Vincent Gallo‘s autobiographical blowjob in Brown Bunny: Variety has just announced that facial hair/hat combo trendsetter Billy Bob Thornton will be co-writing and directing a movie based on his relationship with ex-wife Angelina Jolie.
Because you guys remember that, right? Billy Bob Thornton was married to Angelina Jolie? Okay, he’s just making sure.

Her energy level is through the roof and her style rivals that of many tight-lipped editors: We’re talking about Brisbane/Sydney native, Angela Gilltrap.

Yesterday we suggested fun questions to ask Woody Harrelson during his AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on link aggregation juggernaut Reddit, but as it turned out, our suggestions were probably mooted by Mr. Harrelson, who clearly did not understand what he was getting into. Mr. Harrelson appeared to treat the question and answer session like any other sit-down interview focused on promoting his upcoming film, Rampart, and that was his first mistake. Reddit users (Redditors) flayed him for the strategy, and have continued gleefully roasting the actor as only Reddit could for the last 24 hours or so.
Woody Harrelson is doing the rounds for his new movie Rampart, but in this age of viral buzz, press junkets just aren’t enough. These days, people don’t want to read the same canned answers asked by reporters and filtered through a PR agent: they want to directly interact with famous people. (Isn’t that why Twitter was invented?)
In less than two hours, Mr. Harrelson will be taking to Reddit’s AMA (Ask Me Anything) subforum, where for an hour he’ll be answering nerd questions about just how much marijuana he likes to smoke and some-such. So to stand out from the crowd and make sure the actor answers your query, here are some awesome questions to ask Woody Harrelson.
While we’re anxiously awaiting the March return of Mad Men after its year-long hiatus, we have to admit that the time off has given Jon Hamm the opportunity to show off his comedic side. 30 Rock, Bridesmaids, that time he did a reading for Jon Glaser about The Butthole Surfers, The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, Between Two Ferns, and the upcoming Friends with Kids directed by (and starring) Mr. Hamm’s long-time girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt are just a few examples.
Of course, you’ll never know where Jon Hamm might pop up next…like on a PBS Kid’s cartoon, perhaps?
Several weeks ago, we reported on the oft-heard rumor that if you are lucky enough to catch the Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter‘s penis and put it inside you, you would go home the next morning with a gifting suite worth of goodies. (Including but not limited to a signed baseball! How very Freudian.) The best part of all? There wasn’t a cap on how many times you could pull the one-night-stand move on Mr. Jeter, since he apparently has the memory of a goldfish when it comes to the women he’s bedded.
Sorry ladies, but your free ride is officially over.
