Haven't everybody seen this garbage already? "The mystery buyer looking to purchase Kim Kardashian's sex tape needs to muster up at least $30 million if they want a CHANCE at taking it off the market ... TMZ has learned. We spoke with Vivid Entertainment top banana Steve Hirsch ... who tells us he HAS made contact with the lawyer who's representing the mystery party interested in buying the rights to the sex tape ... and he's open to the possibility of a deal. Hirsch tells us ... "Based on its long term value, it looks like $30 million would be a starting point for a discussion on all of the rights." Hirsch adds, "I have no idea who is behind this offer ... but If it's Kim, I have a tremendous amount of respect for her. She has my number and can call me any time."
Will the next Bond movie be called Carte Blanche? Here is some rampant speculation from Bleeding Cool: "Jelena Mihailovic is a Serbian cellist and, apparently, she performed in front of Sam Mendes and some James Bond “producers” at Cannes. So “staggered” were they by what she was doing, they allegedly asked her to provide “the opening score” for Bond 23 ... Now, this info is courtesy of Blic Online, but it’s not the juiciest bit of their report. No. They also just tossed in a name for the film while they were at it. Check this out: At one of the many concerts the musician held in France during the Cannes Film Festival, the producers and the director of the next Bond film were in the audience, who were staggered by what they had heard and on the spot offered Jelena a chance to write the opening score for the new James Bond film, entitled Carte Blanche. Do we assume that Jelena used the name of the film when speaking to a reporter, not understanding that she probably shouldn’t? The plot gets even thicker: Carte Blanche is actually the name of a new James Bond novel by Jeffrey Deaver, and here’s an excerpt from the book’s plot summary on Wikipedia: [Bond] starts his assignment on the outskirts of Novi Sad in Serbia where an Irish sapper-turned-enforcer named Niall Dunne is planning to derail a train carrying three hundred kilograms of methyl isocyanate, dumping it into the Danube. Bond is able to prevent the catastrophe by derailing the train himself at a much safer place along the line. He is unable to detain Dunne, who kills Bond’s Serbian contacts in the course of his escape. This chimes nicely with reports last week that the film would feature a big set-piece on a train."
Urkel guests on House From Ausiello: "Here’s a sentence I never thought I’d type: House will be doing time in the pokey alongside Urkel! Former child geek Jaleel White will guest star in the Oct. 3 season premiere of House as a fellow inmate of Hugh Laurie’s titular grouch, TVLine has confirmed. White is, of course, best known for his iconic role as the suspenders-clad little Einstein at the center of the ’90s sitcom Family Matters. In recent years, the now-34-year-old actor has made guest appearances on The Game, Psych and Boston Legal. The prison-set House opener, intriguingly titled “20 Vicodin,” picks up a year after the events of May’s finale and also features a guest turn by Michael Paré (Eddie and the Cruisers) as the warden."
Daryl Hannah arrested "Daryl Hannah was among 100 people arrested Tuesday in Washington, D.C., during a sit-in in front of the White House to protest a a massive expansion of a pipeline carrying oil from Alberta, Canada, to the Gulf of Mexico. "I do believe we are in a time of crisis for so many things. And in times of crisis, you have to get engaged in the process. You have to walk your talk. Being arrested is something you never hope for. You don’t want to get arrested. But you know it's a risk you take," the Kill Bill and Splash star, noting that "Civil obedience is a long-heralded American tradition," told PEOPLE after paying a fine and being released. "The majority of people who got arrested with me were moms, grandmothers and school teachers. Like me, they are standing up against this big corporation and saying, 'No.' " Hannah, 50, whose two previous arrests related to environmental protests concerned urban gardens to coal mining," added: "Tar sands are the worst environmental atrocity. This pipeline would extend over the nation's largest freshwater aquafiers that 20 million people depend on for water. "A third of the nation's irrigation water comes from there. What's going to happen when that pipeline leaks? We can’t take that risk." (REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque).
