Utterly neglected long-weekend left-overs
OFF THE RACK
Cover: All week I've been hoping that someone would finally get to the bottom of the Whitney tragedy. Thank you, Star, for going where no one else has dared to stoop: Interviewing her personal drug dealer. This paragon of self-awareness-free living actually says of Whitney's cocaine habit: "... it just showed what that lifestyle can do to somebody with so much talent." Gosh. If only it hadn't been so easy for Whitney to obtain all those drugs, she might have found a better "lifestyle."
This week in marriages that are so doomed even before they begin: Jessica Biel wants a prenup that pays her if Justin Timberlake cheats. She's also afraid that he will cheat if she gets fat when she's pregnant. So she doesn't want kids until he's proven he can behave. Justin will not add a fidelity clause to the prenup. Fun-fun.
Cover: Even if this story about Brad and Angie getting married is the same fake story about Brad and Angie getting married that we've read an estimated 951 times before, it's such a relief to have a cover that's not about Whitney, that it makes me all kinds of delirious with happiness. Wedding in France! Yay! Stylish ceremony! Yay! More babies! Yay!
This week in twin fighting: J.Lo and former husband, Skeletor (King of the Blood Clan), are in some sort of tug of war over their twins. Marc doesn't want the kids to start thinking Jennifer's young man (whose name I'm clearly not going to bother knowing) has any role to play in their lives. Have we learned nothing from the math-wise decisions of Will and Jada? You have two kids. You have two former love biscuits fighting. One kid for each solves everything.
Cover: All week I've been hoping that someone would finally do the right thing and hire an actress to play Whitney in a series of creepy photos recreating her death in a hotel bathroom. Thank you, Enquirer, for your bravery. I now know what Whitney could possibly have looked like lying dead, face down on a bath mat.
This week in there can only be one: Salma Hayek hates Sofia Vergara because Sofia has "dethroned" her as Hollywood's hottest Latina actress and "stolen" all her roles.
This week in But what about the French wedding? Brad and Angie had a fight that made him cry. Angie wanted to say hello to Billy Bob but, that's a double standard because, AS WE KNOW, Brad isn't even allowed to talk to Jennifer. Or something.
