NBC and its cable offshoot MSNBC have decided that from this point forward, they will refer to the situation in Iraq for what it is: Beginning this morning, MSNBC will refer to the fighting in Iraq as a civil war — a phrase the White House continues to resist. But after careful thought, MSNBC and NBC News decided over the weekend, the terminology is appropriate, as armed militarized factions fight for their own political agendas. We’ll have a lots more on the situation in Iraq and the decision to use the phrase, civil war. And my girl Contessa Brewer got to deliver the news!
A Jessica Simpson sex tape??!! Rumors are flying that the people that released the Pamela Anderson/Tommy Lee video will be doing the same with Simpson and her ex-husband Nick Lachey. According to one of Jessica's people, "Jessica is horrified her name and sex tape are being mentioned in the same sentence. She's always been a girl of high morals and principles." Whatever. That music video she made where she is washing a car in a bikini is practically porn. I'm looking forward to whatever comes out, though I doubt these rumors are true.
Tawny Kitaen? She was the hot redhead in the Tom Hanks movie Bachelor Party, and the Whitesnake videos from the 80s. She was also on a ton of TV shows in the early 90s. Her career has taken a serious nosedive, and she was just arrested with 15 grams of cocaine in her possession (slightly more than personal use amount). How sad. But I guess that is probably the fate for a number of former music video bimbos.
Hallelujah! Actress Mary-Lynn Rajskub is not dating Rush Limbaugh. Rajskub plays Chloe O'Brian on 24 and has previously gone out with people like David Cross. Rajsksub and the big, fat douchebag both appeared on a panel on terrorism. "He said hello to everyone and kissed me full on the lips. I was like, 'Oh, that was odd.' Then the picture was on the Internet and people thought I was going out with him."
Even though Curt Weldon (R-PA) lost his bid for re-election (finally the voters in his district realized that Weldon is certifiably insane), the FBI's investigation into his corruption will continue. Among Weldon's questionable stunts while in office: attempting to pass a resolution cutting off all aid to Maldova (a former Soviet state) because one of his contributors lost money on a business deal in the country. That's the GOP for you -- always taking care of the people's business!
