    No one else cares. Since the political class is still in a quandry over how Donald Trump keeps rolling even as he does things they are sure will bring about his end, let’s use tomorrow night’s Fox News debate as the perfect case in point. Trump is apparently going to skip the debate because of his antipathy toward Megyn Kelly, or hers toward him, or whatever. Upon learning this, the entire world of political people immediately went into overdrive analyzing the move. Is it shrewd? Does this present an opening for Cruz? Does he look like a baby? How will...

    Speaking on Good Morning America and Morning Joe this morning, Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski hinted that other candidates were thinking of dropping out of the upcoming Fox News debate after Trump decided to bail. He asserted that anchor Megyn Kelly was "obsessed" with his boss, which was one reason why Trump decided not to participate. "Megyn Kelly is totally obsessed with Mr. Trump," Lewandowski said on Good Morning America. "She's done multiple shows on why he shouldn't be even involved in the race on television. She's completely obsessed with him. It's impossible to have a fair and honest...

    Following President Obama's January 5 executive gun control announcement, the White House emailed "talking points" to celebrities which they, in turn, tweeted out in support of the new controls. According to Fox News, the email said, "Below you have: short and long-term action steps, more info on POTUS's actions, highlights from YOUR Tweets thus far (thank you!), and draft Tweets for you to build from if helpful." It also encouraged them to use the hashtag #StopGunViolence and "make sure everyone knows you have the President's back."

    Rush Limbaugh has stated several times that the assassination of John F. Kennedy ushered in the era of modern liberalism. Liberals back then just couldn't handle the fact that the assassin was Lee Harvey Oswald, a communist who lived for awhile in the Soviet Union. So they attempted to blame Americaand the "rightwing" for Kennedy's assassination.In the current update of that attitude, liberals hate to see radical Muslims blamed for acts of terrorism.

Clutching his ashes on the march into a makeshift church, the 67-year-old actress - who was wearing a bridal gown - said she had wanted to lay Leary to rest where he would be surrounded by revelers who had taken the psychedelic drug to honor his memory. 'I think he'd be so happy,' Sarandon said of Leary, who died and was cremated in 1996. 'I think he would have loved the chaos. He would have loved it....

Theyd pay for one of the things they were still holding but drop something extra in their shopping bag, like their own version of a free gift, said the Sephora insider. At Anthropologie, some upper-middle-class women buy $400 kaftans and $500 clogs and then accessorize for free. We were taught that our prime shoplifters were women and girls who were regular shoppers at Anthro, said one ex-employee, who every night would find piles of security tags in the fitting rooms that were taken off apparel that...

This admission, from a lawsuit that was settled in 2006, should move the Cosby controversy forward in a major way. Certain aspects of it just cant be controversial anymore.

    Actors were once strapping hunks, thick-thighed he-men who had only to arrive at a film premiere to make everyones eyes bulge. These Adonises towered above lesser mortals and had their suits made specially for them because they were such muscular specimens. Thats the way things were when the likes of John Wayne (6ft 4in), Gregory Peck (6ft 3in), Charlton Heston (6ft 3in) and Clint Eastwood (6ft 4in) were in their prime.

    One of the downsides of being famous is that folks pay far more attention to you than they should. American celebrities are constantly under surveillance, and every word they say is subject to scrutiny. So be careful what you wish for if you desire fame. No human being should be a goldfish. That being said, some celebrities simply cannot keep their mouths shut, weighing in on topics they know little or nothing about. And when that happens, the famous person often undergoes even more scrutiny. You may remember that in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., shootings, comedian-actor Jim Carrey...

    ....Fame today is a matryoshka doll: inside each celebrity is a series of smaller, hollow simulacra, and, at the very core, there is a hard little being who feels buried alive. In Alexiss gang there were four girls and three boys: the main culprit, Nick Prugo, was a gay kid working his way out of the closet. When he was eventually arrested by the police he was wearing a striped top hed stolen from the house of the actor Orlando Bloom. And thats what they did: after days of shopping or doing pilates, hanging out on MySpace, texting or oh-my-god-ing...

    Most of the reason we follow celebrity news is because we like watching these people screw up in horrific ways. And let's face it, at this point there is no story of drug abuse, racism, sexual assault, or outright murder that would surprise us. It could turn out that Ryan Gosling secretly organized the 9/11 attacks and we'd just shrug and say, "Celebrities, man. That s**t goes to your head." So maybe we should stop every now and then and point out when they do nice or even heroic things. Because it does happen.

    -- IMAGE HERE -- Aging comedian/actor Jay Mohr managed to generate some publicity for himself on Monday by exploiting the Boston Marathon explosions to push his anti-Second Amendment agenda. Mohr, who those from my generation might remember from Tom Cruises hit 1996 film Jerry Maguire, and younger readers might remember from absolutely nowhere, sent his first clueless tweet Monday night. What bothers me most about today is that were getting used 2 it. ENOUGH. 2nd amendment must go. Violence has 2 stop. Culture MUST change. When questioned on the connection between the Second Amendment and the Boston explosions, he just...
