Dallas-the Movie
Intriguing. But John Travolta as JR?

And who, I must ask, shot JR?
From Newsmax.com

“Mel Gibson and Kevin Costner have joined the list of A-list actors under consideration for the role of J.R. Ewing in the upcoming big-screen version of the classic TV show ‘Dallas.’ John Travolta has emerged as the leading contender for the role, but no decision will be made until the script is rewritten, according to the trade publication Variety. . . . Tommy Lee Jones’ name has also surfaced.

“Whoever lands the part will join what’s likely to be a star-studded cast. Jane Fonda is reportedly being eyed for the role of Miss Ellie, played by Barbara Bel Geddes in the TV soap opera, while Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jennifer Lopez and Demi Moore are the favorites to play Sue Ellen (Linda Gray’s TV role). Drew Barrymore and Reese Witherspoon are being courted for the role of Pamela (Victoria Principal), Jessica Simpson and Lindsay Lohan are contenders for Lucy (Charlene Tilton) and Owen Wilson is among those under consideration for Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy).”


Joan Rivers Speaks the :::smirk::: Truth
Although I don’t buy for a minute that bit about Cruise’s first two wives profiting from him. I think it was part of the PLAN.

At the risk of lawsuit, I suggest that Cruise’s sexuality has been questioned frequently over the past many years. Those wives of Cruise lent him, well, a legitimacy. IF they were marriages of convenience I must stipulate.

If they were, than I’m quite sure Kidman et all negotiated their own reward from the deal.


From Femailefirst:

The notoriously rude Rivers believes Cruise’s former partners exploited the WAR OF THE WORLDS star to boost their own status, and maintains the DAWSON’S CREEK beauty will be no different.

She says, “Each woman has done very well by him – NICOLE KIDMAN and PENELOPE CRUZ. So this one, Katie Holmes, who doesn’t seem to have much talent, is probably the luckiest of all.

“I saw her in BATMAN BEGINS and, let’s just say, she better hang on to Tom for a while!”

And now we have the following. Hope this factoid lays all those nasty Cruise rumors to rest.


Tom Cruise’s fianc e, Katie Holmes, is pregnant with the couple’s child, Cruise’s spokesperson, Lee Anne DeVette, tells PEOPLE exclusively.


We Love This One
Not being a great fan of the former President, I find the details from Louis Freeh, Clinton’s Director of the FBI, intriguing. And I don’t think for a minute he’s state unequivocally that bit about a FACT if he didn’t have unimpeachable proof.

From the Drudge Report:

In another revelation, Freeh says the former president let down the American people and the families of victims of the Khobar Towers terror attack in Saudi Arabia. After promising to bring to justice those responsible for the bombing that killed 19 and injured hundreds, Freeh says Clinton refused to personally ask Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah to allow the FBI to question bombing suspects the kingdom had in custody – the only way the bureau could secure the interviews, according to Freeh. Freeh writes in the book, “Bill Clinton raised the subject only to tell the crown prince that he understood the Saudis’ reluctance to cooperate and then he hit Abdullah up for a contribution to the Clinton Presidential Library.” Says Freeh, “That’s a fact that I am reporting.”


Asked and Guessed. Blind Item Fun

From Page 6:
WHICH soon-to-be-divorced celebrity carries on a secret life in the apartment above his garage? His wife put up with his same-sex philandering for years, but she finally got annoyed with his long-term relationship with a singer staying above the garage . . .

WHICH handsome reality TV host rudely insulted two young ladies at the bar in the W Hotel in Times Square with ungentlemanly remarks about the girls’ chests? He then called an escort service and was partying with a Russian call girl 20 minutes later.

Speaking of Eddie Murphy
From IMDB.com:

Murphy Calls Up Pre-Nup As Divorce Heats Up

Funnyman Eddie Murphy is recalling a 12-year-old pre-nuptial agreement with his estranged wife Nicole as their divorce gets messy. In court papers filed by the Shrek star, Murphy insists the couple’s “premarital agreement” is “valid and enforceable” and he intends to use it to make sure he doesn’t lose a valuable chunk of his fortune to his soon-to-be ex. And the bitter comedian is calling for his and Nicole’s kids to be kept away from his estranged wife’s new man, businessman Alan Daniels. In the divorce papers, he insists, “Nicole Murphy shall be restrained and enjoined from having the children in the physical presence of Alan F. Daniels.” The couple, who split in August, will also be battling over two New York homes, worth a combined $37 million, and a Beverly Hills, Los Angeles estate, worth upwards of $10
