Gossip Round Up

October 26, 2009

Vanity Fair, which laid off journalists last week, is reportedly hiring actor Sean Penn to travel to Havana to conduct an interview with Cuban president Fidel Castro. The magazine is said to have assigned Penn to write a story about how the Obama administration has affected Cuba.

LBN-COMMENTARY By PETER BART: Mention Roman Polanski at a social gathering and you are likely to find yourself in a heated argument. With bail now formally denied by the Swiss (Polanski already has spent one month in jail) and with extradition to the U.S. seemingly inevitable, the debate will grow ever more shrill.

THE LIST RANT By ERICKA T. BASS: 1. If theres a bigger loser on the planet than Lorenzo Lamas, I haven’t found him.   2. Time-Warner can shove their awful customer service up their ass.   3. Men I would never sleep with, even for money: Obama, Kaddafi, Sam Zell, Bono, Monty Hall and, of course, Lorenzo Lamas.   4. Want to throw up at a restaurant – go to Buca di Beppo or the Olive Garden.   5. Blue Shield now sends me their notices in about ten different languages. Lucky me.   6. Thank God women like me broke out of their domestic cocoon, leaving their stupid mother’s circumscribed lives in the garbage heap.   7. Face it, friends – America is so obsessed with youth and looks even with an array of super-expensive cosmetic procedures that allow women to become their own Frankenstein Barbies.   8. Stupid female celebrities: Sarah Jessica Parker, Cameron Diaz, Helen Hunt, Pamela Anderson and last but certainly not least Lindsay Lohan.
