Annoying Then, Annoying Now

Yes, I know, it's hard to believe, but Kim Kardashian was just about as annoying 20 years ago as she is now.

Thanks to Entertainment Tonight, we all get to witness just how annoying, on the video they unearthed from ther eighth-grade graduation.

"My name's Kim Kardashian, I'm the dopest on the ropest person in this class," she says on the video. "I'm dope on the rope, and you should learn my vocabulary."

One of her classmates says, "Define 'dope,' Kim."

And she responds, "Kim is dope."

This is one of those times when jokes simply write themselves...

Chestnuts Roasting Barista-Style

It's the most wonderful time for a new coffee.

At least, that's what Starbucks would have you believe.

Get ready for Chestnut Praline Latte.

The perfect beverage to wash down those holiday meals, don't you think?

It's Starbucks first holiday drink in five years, and industry experts think it's the chain's answer to the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Dunkin' Donuts.

Starbucks told the folks at Fox News that their drink is "inspired by the time-honored holiday tradition of warm roasted chestnuts… with freshly steamed milk and flavors of caramelized chestnuts and spices." You can add whipped cream and praline sprinkles, if you wish.

If you're salivating, grab a napkin or a bib. The drink won't be available nationwide until November 21.

Lady Batman?

At first, it reads like one of those hoax articles.

But then when you realize that the person they're writing about is Lady Gaga, it makes you go, "Hmmm..."

The folks at ComicBook.com are reporting that Gaga boughtbought a Malibu mansion recently.

One accessory unit that came with the $23 million price tag was what The New York Daily News is calling a "Batcave."

Said Batcave can only be accessed by an underground tunnel, and it features a bowling alley, arcade games, a home theater and an 800-bottle wine cellar.

If Gaga gets tired of it, she can always lease it out as a frat house.

Whose Fault Is It Anyway?

Monica Lewinsky, one-half of the scandal that almost brought down the Clinton administration, spoke over the weekend at the Forbes Magazine 30 Under 30 Summit.

As an introduction, she recapped the story of her affair with Bill Clinton.

She was fresh out of college and "more than averagely romantic," as she tells it. "I fell in love with my boss – in a 22-year-old sort of way."

When the story broke, "within 24 hours, I became a public figure." All thanks to the Internet and the Drudge Report.

"I was patient zero," she said, "the first person to have their reputation completely destroyed worldwide via the Internet."

The entire speech can be found below. It's about 25 minutes long - but interesting in a historical sort of way...

Bizarrely Funny

Shia Labeouf has had more than his share of troubles in the past several months.

And now, Rob Cantor - a singer and songwriter - has penned a tune in tribute to Shia.

Well, not really a tribute.

More an extremely weird and bizarrely funny performance piece - featuring Rob, a couple of choruses, a troupe of dancers and what may be a partial philharmonic orchestra.

Check it out - it's perfect for Halloween.

And make sure you stay until the very end for an unexpected surprise.

About Face for Renee

Renee Zellweger caused a stir over the weekend when she showed up at a Hollywood function looking different.

Yup. She doesn’t look the way she used to look, so that got some tongues wagging.

Yesterday, Renee told PEOPLE magazine she’s glad that people think she looks different.

“I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows," she told the magazine.

She thinks the whole thing is silly, and good for her. “Perhaps I look different. Who doesn't as they get older?”

And for the record, she’s starting to look a little bit like Glenn Close – which is not necessarily a bad thing.

Reality TV

Reality TV
For the like of me I can't fathom the popularity of TV reality shows. Particularly The Real Housewives of wherever variety. You know the type. I'm talking about the ones where they assemble upwardly mobile, attractive women who behave ugly. What's so entertaining about that? Reality TV is akin to WWF wrestling. No. I take that back. Participating in the WFF involves a degree of athleticism. To be in a reality show you pretty much have to be devoid of civility, easily provoked and lacking compassion. Glamorized vulgarity and a sense of materialism are also desirable. There's nothing "real" about reality TV. People change whenever there's a mike or camera around. They become self-conscience of how they look and speak. Reality TV shows may not be scripted but I'm sure the participants are given some sort of story line to follow, and are probably coached in what to say or how to behave. Even the term reality TV is bogus, a misnomer, a contradiction of terms. I watch TV to escape reality. If I wanted reality, I'd shut the TV off and talk with my sons about their goals in life.
On second thought – pass me the remote.

Do It or Get Off the Pot!

In a new interview with GQ magazine, film star Matthew McConaughey shared the romantic story of how he decided to marry his now-wife, Camila Alves.

According to him, it took her grabbing the bull by the horns, and saying, "C’mon, Big Boy, Mr. Easygoing-We’ll- Get-to-It-When-We-Get-to-It. Either s**t or get off the pot."

While Matthew didn't mention it in the interview, his wife will undoubtedly be releasing her new line of matrimonial greeting cards any time now - as soon as she gets off the pot.

Being Married to Dennis Rodman "The Worst"?

 In a recent appearance on Oprah Winfrey's Where Are They Now?, actress Carmen Electra opened up about her short marriage with the NBA's Dennis Rodman.

Yes, the same guy who thinks he can solve the world's problems by playing basketball in North Korea was once married to Carmen.

And as described by Carmen, it was "the worst."

In her and his defense, she also said when it was good, it was "amazing."

She says she remembers thinking, immediately after the wedding, "Oh God, what did we do? What did we just do?"

Not a good start, no matter how you look at it...
