Late-night-TV frat boy Jimmy Kimmel, 39, will be out sick a few days from his job on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live after undergoing an emergency appendectomy Wednesday night in L.A. "The surgery was a success," his rep said yesterday.
In its report, the Associated Press saw fit to remind the world that Kimmel has somehow bewitched the strange, almost sublimely sexy, wicked funny comic Sarah Silverman to go steady with him.
This fills me with envy and resentment.
Trouble in LindsayVille?Reports that a new tell-all book will spill Lindsay Lohan's private inner being continue apace. In the latest bit of tabloid sleaze, the would-be author, former LL bodyguard Lee T. Weaver, tells News of the World that LL once tried "to grope Mariah Carey's bottom and boobs." (Hm, thought she'd have better taste.) Weaver says he has salacious info about zillions of stars, including Eddie Murphy and Jamie Foxx. A Lindsay rep says Weaver, who claims he was the star's protector for two years, was with her for less than two weeks in '06. The rep calls Weaver's ploy "a cynical and ugly attempt . . . to cash in on Lindsay's fame."
The pilgrims' taleNow that it's dead, legions of Sopranos devotees, left with nothing but dusty memories (and DVDs, On Demand and TiVo saves), have taken to the bleak streets of North Jersey where the show was filmed.
They come on a lustful pilgrimage to ravage the aura of the now-defunct HBO show. They gawk at people in Holsten's diner in Bloomfield, where Tony Soprano and family ate in the series finale, during which Tony communed with some deeply symbolic onion rings. The pilgrims can take home truckloads of onion rings as relics, if they wish - to wear on gold chains, to adorn nose, chin and eyebrow piercings, to use in bizarre rituals.
