Kal Penn

I don't watch House so I could care less about spoiling anything, but if you care about OMG Spoiler Alerts! you probably are a boring fool anyway. I can't say for sure, I don't know your life, but come on now.

Onto the goods. Guess what Entertainment Weekly is saying! Sexy, sexy, sexy actor Kal Penn is leaving the show House (and acting altogether for a while) in order to work for the Obama administration. Kal asked the producers to leave the show when he was given this opportunity. He said:


I was incredibly honored a couple of months ago to get the opportunity to go work in the White House. I got to know the President and some of the staff during the campaign and had expressed interest in working there, so I'm going to be the associate director in the White House office of public liaison. They do outreach with the American public and with different organizations. They're basically the front door of the White House. They take out all of the red tape that falls between the general public and the White House. It's similar to what I was doing on the campaign.

Kal is taking a pretty big paycut to fulfill his political passion. Here's wishing him all the best on his new path. BRB, planing a trip to DC. Rawr!

andre 3000

Rapper Andre 3000 was arrested in Atlanta over the weekend for speeding in his 2007 Porsche. An officer clocked the "Hey Ya" singer doing 109 mph on a Georgia intestate with a 65 mph speed limit.

All Hip Hop quotes Henry County Police Captain Jason Bolton as saying "Traveling that fast along 75, you’re passing people as if they’re standing still. It’s an accident waiting to happen." I-75 makes it way from just north of Miami to the Canadian border, passing through Atlanta.

Andre was released shortly after being arrested and is expected in court on April 29th. Which happens to be NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt's birthday, how about that!

hillary clinton

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in Mexico last week. During her trip, she visited Mexico City and while on a tour of the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, she got an up close view of the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe which was lowered to eye level just for her visit.

Repoerts are that while admiring the image, Hillary asked "Who painted it?"

History of the image is that it was created in 1531, and appeared on the apron of Juan Diego after he saw, and spoke to, an image of The Virgin. When Juan showed the image to peeps in town, a church was built in her honor.

So Hillary Clinton, apparently unfamiliar with this story, wanted to know who painted the image when she saw it in Mexico. After being told that God painted it, she pressed further asking "But who painted the painting, the roses?" And was again told that God painted it.

On her way out, Hillary told a group that had gathered outside of the church "You have a marvelous virgin." Man, if I had a nickel every time I heard that!

slap, chop!

Vince Offer, better known as the ShamWow Guy, but legally known as Vince Shlomi, was arrested for felony battery in Miami, Florida last month. Vince, who is the reason you don't even buy paper towels anymore, met a prostitute in a South Beach night club and according to The Smoking Gun, paid her $1000 for a little bit 'o sumtin sumtin.

So the trouble started when the prostitute, Sasha Harris, kissed Vince and bit his tongue. She wouln't lte go, so he let go on her face a few times. She received a few punches to the kisser from Vince, and then ran to the lobby and called the cops. When the cops showed up, there's the Slap Chop guy all covered in scratches around his nose and mouth.

I guess she didn't love his nuts?

As you can see in the mug shot above, the man has impeccable fashion sense and perhaps has run out of hair gel. Mr. Shlomi and his date both got off easy, as prosecutors have not to file formal charges against either of them. All I can say is Sham.... Wow!

the manor

Do you have an extra $150 million laying around the house? If so, you're in luck! Candy Spelling, Tori Spelling mother and the widow of television producer Aaron Spelling just put "The Manor" on the market. The price makes it the most expensive home for sale in the country, says the SF Examiner.

All 56,500 square feet, 4.6 acres and the gift wrapping room can be yours if you've got the means, as Candy bought a condo in Los Angeles last year where she plans to live out her days.

The mansion has a barber shop in the attic, 16 car ports, and a humidity controlled silver storage room. Ya know, for all the spoons you've no doubt accumulated. Here we are, face to face, just a couple of silver spoons. Hoping to find we're two of a kind. Together, we’re going to find our way!

Bye-Bye Blender

blender magazine

Blender Magazine called it quits this morning, reports Gawker, laying off 30 writers and editors and completely folding up the magazine.

The magazine was sold in 2007 for a quarter of a billion dollars, and it seems that was the perfect time to get out. Heavy debt and not enough income from paid subscriptions and ads art to blame for Blender's demise.

This leaves Rolling Stone and Spin as the only two really major music magazines out there. Happy reading!

So, NASA had an online contest to name their new Node 3 space-module, which is going to be a room on the space station. Comedy Central TV Personality Stephen Colbert won the naming, with the name Colbert coming out on top. So when aliens make their way to Earth to kill us Independence Day style, Colbert will be prominent on their minds. Good going.

The name Colbert beat out the NASA recommended Serenity by more than 40,000 votes. Never doubt this man's ability to get people to to stuff on the internet. Let's hope he never starts a religious cult in Utah.

Actor Stacey Keach was hospitalized yesterday in Los Angeles, according to the LA Times. Stacey's spokesman Dick Guttman stated that the television and stage actor is in stable condition, but did not disclose what ailment put him in the hospital in the first place.

Stacey has been playing the part of Richard Nixon in the play Frost/Nixon at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles. You may have heard of it. His understudy is going to fill in until Stacey gets better, but ticket holders have the option of exchanging dates or a refund if they so desire.

Stacey has been in the business for over 50 years! Remember him in American History X? Man that was good stuff. The acting, not the subject matter. Geez people.

Get well soon Pops!

Former Dead or Alive frontman and Pete Burns has been hospitalized in London after collapsing last Wednesday due to kidney failure. Pete wrote on his Dead Or Alive website "I'm in a very serious condition on 24 hours intravenous morphine for the pain. Intravenous fluid as I'm so dehydrated and the kidneys can't retain the liquid. I'm critically ill and under 24 hours observation and will be in hospital for quite a long time."

5 hours of emergency surgery later, doctors found 8 kidney stones which they were unable to remove due to complications. In that case, a morphine drip is probably the best thing for him. An address has been left on the website where fans can send flowers and cards.

Get well soon Pete! The world needs that face!!
