DON’T SHOOT: IT’S DAVID SPADE!

It’s far from evident at first glance, but when it comes to popularity with women, David Spade, is commonly known as the George Clooney of comedy (back when George was single.) Spade is arguably between 5’5” and 5’7” tall, but he has been linked with more Hollywood beauties than better dressed guys twice his size. Look up his amazing list of exes. (We’ve seen a lot of photos of David having breakfast at IHOP with model types.) A touch of sarcasm goes a long way…

ARNOLD THE GOVERNATOR IS NOW A HIT MAN

It’s fun to see our former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in Canada being prettied up for his new comedy/action movie “Why We’re Killing Gunther,” written and directed by SNL’s Taran Killam. (Who, incidentally will NOT be back next season.) Arnold plays Gunther, the world’s greatest hit-man and he’s tormented by a bunch of competitive international assassins conniving to kill him. Gunther is an obnoxious show-off, but he’s also savvy and repeatedly outsmarts his hapless stalkers in the film. Arnold actually got a cute haircut for the role.

NICOLE KIDMAN GAVE HERSELF A MAKEUNDER

AG041050_01niccut

Can you believe this ordinary looking attractive girl is Nicole Kidman? She’s wearing a brown wig and minimal makeup while filming “The Family Fang.” . Nicole doesn’t get enough offers to do quality comedies so she took matters into her own hands. She bought the rights to the highly praised – and very original- novel “The Family Fang,” and she’s producing the comedic drama and costarring with Jason Bateman, who will also direct. It’s about a brother and sister who are forced by financial problems to return to their family home and have to deal with their world famous artistic parents and reflect on their peculiar childhood.

THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES: EVERYBODY LIKED DAVID BRENNER

Obit-David-Brenner_Whitcut

We lost another funny guy. David Brenner’s droll style of observational comedy back in the 70’s inspired many of the comics of today. He was a regular on just about every talk show through the years because he was always hilarious. David briefly had his own talk show “Nightlife” in the 80’s, and above, his guests were Frank Zappa and his kids Dweezil and Moon Unit. Brenner is holding up a necktie that was given to Frank to wear when he entered a restaurant that day. David continued doing his stand-up comedy until the beginning of this year.

“BRIDESMAIDS” SUCCESS PROVES WOMEN LIKE TO LAUGH AT THEMSELVES


Hollywood is abuzz with surprise since “Bridesmaids” turned out to be an unexpected hit. (It raked in 21.5 million – second only to “Thor.”) Why is everyone surprised? Apparently male Hollywood producers don’t think women like comedy! “Bridesmaids” has two things going for it – it’s funny and it’s ABOUT WOMEN. Sure, it’s too raunchy sometimes, and a bit overlong, but we women are starved for humor. Gangs of girlfriends got together this weekend to see “Bridesmaids” – like they did for “Sex & the City.” It was FUN! And profitable – maybe now the studios will stop to think about what females really want for a change. (Above photos– the girls in charge and Kristen Wiig with the nice-guy leading man Chris O’Dowd.

SUSAN LUCCI HOPES TO LAUGH FOR THE REMAINDER OF HER CAREER

Imagine a young actress landing her first decent acting job on a new show in 1970 and playing the SAME character until 2010! That’s Susan Lucci on “All My Children.” After all those years Susan senses the show is winding down – viewership is at a new low- and the end is in sight. She’s had enough of melodrama, and now Susan is actively looking for a role on a sitcom. She loved appearing with Wendie Malick on “Hot in Cleveland” and hopes to make people laugh for the next step in her career.

JANUARY JONES JUST WANTS A GOOD LAUGH

Admirers of Mad Men’s January Jones might be interested to hear that she has a weakness for funny men. Not gorgeous guys, comedians. She loves comics more than any other kind of guy – especially the ones on SNL. A knowledgeable source has informed us that she and Jason Sudeikis are just friends, however. She’s rumored to have had a flirtation with Fred Armisan and definitely had a fling with Jeremy Piven. Her search for the funniest guy in town is still underway.

CARRIE FISHER’S “WISHFUL DRINKING” ON HBO – WORTH STAYING HOME FOR

For decades we’ve been writing gossip about Carrie Fisher, who gained fame playing Star Wars Princess Leia, and before that we remember READING gossip about her parents Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher and the Elizabeth Taylor love triangle. Carrie married a musician, Paul Simon, and an agent, Bryan Lourd, who decided he was gay. All the while Carrie was battling substance abuse and manic depression. She says she still gets a refined version of electroshock therapy on a regular basis to keep herself sane! Her life story and cast of characters is fascinating and hilarious. Debbie Reynolds’ daughter turned out to be a smart and funny writer and her latest book Wishful Drinking has evolved into a one-woman show. And what a show it is. World of Wonder did a brilliant job of producing a documentary on Carrie’s show for HBO that airs this Sunday, December 12. Don’t miss it – it’s the next best thing to seeing her in person and you’ll love the way she has fun with all her family dramas. Carrie Fisher may be damaged goods, but she is indeed, a treasure.

SEE “HEARTBREAKER” FOR ENTERTAINING ESCAPISM AND JUST PLAIN FUN

Weeks ago we wrote about Vanessa Paradis and her new movie “Heartbreaker,” coming out this month. We posted the movie’s trailer and it looked like a funny romantic comedy that we hoped to see. Tonight we SAW it, and it more than lived up to our expectations. What a delight! Exotic locations and a very entertaining story that had the audience laughing out loud. The “Dirty Dancing “ scenes were our favorites. Here’s a romantic comedy that men will enjoy too. (Partly because the women are very sexy and the men are average looking at best.) It’s WAY funnier and more original than American romantic comedies.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
