Type Casting

"Actress" Anne Heche is slated to replace Jennifer Jason Leigh in the Broadway play "Proof," which is about a crazy woman with a crazy father. This should be a real stretch for the thespian formerly known as Celestia.

What Would Ann Say?

Ann Landers daughter Margo has been bickering with her cousin Jeanne Phillips (who now writes the "Dear Abby" column) because she thinks Jeanne is cashing in on her mother's death by talking about her grief for her dead aunt in her column.
Jesus, girls, 20 lashes with a wet PC cable for all this public kvetching.

Go, Rosie, Go!

Since Rosie O'Donnell has quit doing her show, she's actually funny again. I am so happy about this. That queen of nice routine was sickening.
From E! Online:

Yes, Rosie has snapped.
Boston and New York newspapers have published some jaw-dropping snippets from O'Donnell's weekend performance during a star-studded party at the Mohegan Sun casino in Uncasville, Connecticut.
Just a day after Bill Clinton showed up at the casino to receive an honor (and then broke out his saxophone for a performance), the Democrat O'Donnell dissed the ex-President and said she refused to speak to him.
"He disgusts me," she told the crowd, according to the New York Post. "And I know I'm not supposed to say this because I'm a good Democrat, but I didn't want to talk to him because he lied to me when he said, 'I did not have sexual relations with that woman,' and then put the scarlet-letter blow job on her for the rest of her life...I hate you."
According to the New York Daily News, she also said that when she was at Liza Minnelli's wedding (which she called "the gayest thing since my last show"), she refused to talk to Michael Jackson because "I make it a rule not to speak to pedophiles."
When the audience gasped, O'Donnell said, "Oh, come on. I think you all know that kid was probably telling the truth or else Michael wouldn't have paid him off...he's a freak...and not in a nice way."
Of course, she didn't stop there, either. "He's cream-colored and has no nasal passages whatsoever. He doesn't look human.
Did he look into the mirror one day and say, 'Perfect?' "
Also a target for Rosie rage: Sharon Stone, whom O'Donnell said missed the Mohegan Sun bash because she was prepping for her next movie role--in 2004. She also ridiculed Stone for once reciting the words to John Lennon's "Imagine" during a bizarro speech at an AIDS fundraiser.
O'Donnell then ripped into Anne Heche for claiming she was never really gay, and Oprah Winfrey, who was too busy at "home counting her money" to make an appearance on the Rosie O'Donnell Show.
