Speaking of Irrelevant People No One Cares About...

Hollywood star Tori Spelling has started work on a tell-all memoir in a bid to set the record straight about the events of her life....And the 34-year-old insists the details divulged in the book may even shock her actor husband Dean McDermott: "Nobody's read it! Not even Dean!"

Thank Gawd.

I was so worried I'd never know the truth.

Whooooo's Watching?

Bertinelli's Ups & Downs

The delightful Valerie Bertinelli stops by with an honest, open and humorous look at her public weight gain and loss. CNN, Tonight, 9 ET


Seriously, if this doesn't sell you, nothing will:

Eddie Van Halen's ex-wife Valerie Bertinelli once romanced movie mogul Steven Spielberg. In an upcoming interview with talk show host Oprah Winfrey, the TV star-turned-weight-loss spokeswoman opens up about dating the director. Bertinelli reveals Spielberg asked her out after she auditioned for his blockbuster Raiders Of The Lost Ark. She says, "I was so wrong for (the role) and the next day I got a call and some flowers... (Spielberg) asked me out. We went out a few times." The actress and Jenny Craig spokeswoman even suggests the romance was more than dinner and flowers, telling Winfrey, "(We) did more." But the romance didn't last - Bertinelli fell for Van Halen and Spielberg wed actress Amy Irving. He has since divorced and is now married to Kate Capshaw. In the interview, which airs on Oprah on Monday, Bertinelli, who is promoting new autobiography Losing It... And Gaining My Life Back One Pound At A Time, also speaks out about cheating on her ex-husband and a lusty lesbian moment, when she kissed another woman.

She "did more" with Spielberg and she kissed a girl?!


In other news, Valerie's Sweet Sixteen party last week was a blast!

Twitch This Blepharospasm

My right eye has been twitching all day.

Like it's trying to wink at someone or something without my permission.

Or it just made a joke and it's acting out its version of an elbow jab.

Or maybe it's just tired of being in its socket and wants out.

Whatever the reason, it needs to stop.

Just stop.

Insomniatic Spree

Dear Sleep:

Why must you torture me so?

Every night you take hours to arrive and then leave like a bolt of lightening at 7:10 every morning, despite my alarm being set for 8:12.

Why? Is this funny to you?

It's cruel. And quite frankly, irritating.

I hate you.

Please come back.

I miss you terribly.

All my love,

Sleepless HB

The Great Debate: Underwear

Bikini VS Thong

Bikini = occasional wedgie
Thong = permanent wedgie

I rest my case.

I had Vietnamese food for lunch today. Grilled sugar cane shrimp. Mmmmm. It came with a fortune cookie.
