Holy Bat Crap! Johnny Depp is Slated to Be in Next Batman Movie

I’m a HUGE Batman fan (I’m watching Batman Begins for the 50th time as I’m writing this) and I’ve already seen The Dark Knight twice and plan on seeing it again in the next week or so. Yes – I realize I’m a huge nerd. And yes – I am seeking professional help for my little “issue.”

Anyway, I previously mentioned that I thought Johnny Depp would be great to play The Joker in the event Chris Nolan needed an actor to pull the feat off (for a short scene or whatever).

So I was pleasantly surprised to read today’s headlines about Johnny Depp being rumored to play The Riddler in the 3rd installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. reports that not only is Depp rumored to play The Riddler, but Philip Seymour Hoffman may play The Penguin. Wow – what a great cast that would be!

“(Producers) are convinced that the role of the Riddler is perfect for Depp,” a source revealed the rumor to Enquirer. “Johnny’s a pro. He’ll be able to take direction from director Chris Nolan and still make the character his own. And what better Penguin is there than Philip Seymour Hoffman.”

I have to admit that I’m a little skeptical about this rumor turning into reality only because I’m not sure if anyone will be able to top Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker in The Dark Knight. Unless, of course, these two extremely talented actors will be able to bring different dimensions to these dark characters and play them the way they were meant to be played (sorry, Tim Burton).

Well, I better start setting my Google Alerts now…

Crap! There’s that nerdiness thing rearing its ugly head again. Back to therapy tomorrow.

Which Batman movie is YOUR favorite? What villain(s) do you think should be in Chris Nolan’s next Batman movie?


Kathy Griffin Says “No” to Plastic Surgery Proving There is a God

Now before all of Kathy’s “Gays” start threatening me with bitch-slaps for writing this post, hear me out.

I LOVE Kathy Griffin and have always been a huge fan of hers ever since I first saw her on Seinfeld a long time ago. I went to one of her concerts last September, and I happen to be addicted to My Life on the D-List. Plus, she’s also from Chi-town and I have to holla at my girl. Holla!

But you have to admit it Gays, that our little Kathy doesn’t really resemble herself anymore and is starting to look more and more like Andy Dick in a red wig with each nip and tuck she gets. Now Kathy was never what one would classify as being a classic beauty. However, I always thought she was cute and her unique sense of humor and personality made her even cuter.

I had a really difficult time watching her recent D-List episode (when she starts her own school in Mexico) because she was shown sans makeup and looked really, really old. Her ears were almost on the back of her head her skin was pulled so tight!! Da-a-a-ng! Not a good look, Kath.

So imagine my sheer glee after reading an article on this morning where Kathy declared that she’s done with plastic surgery. Yippee!

“[Plastic surgery] didn’t help me one bit,” she says in the latest issue of Fitness. “It didn’t get me happier or didn’t make me look particularly younger, it didn’t help me get jobs.

Shown on also reports that Kathy says she’s learned to distinguish between a hot body in Hollywood and a hot body everywhere else, and to live with the normal fluctuations in her weight. “I like my body more now than I did two decades ago,” she says.

Bravo!!! Way to go girl. Now if only more celebrities would catch on…

For those of you whose stomaches went sour after looking at these photos, I sincerely apologize. But you know you just HAD to look, right? It’s like gaper’s delay from a bad wreck on the highway: you know it’s gonna be gross, but you just HAVE to look as you’re driving by. You can always clean up the puke later.

So which celebrity do YOU think has had the worst plastic surgery?

Labrador Runs for Mayor – I’ve Seen It All Now…

I’m sure you’re reading the headline and asking yourself, “WTF? THIS is news?”

Hey – what can I say? It’s a really slow news day and I just want to take a shower and crash in front of the boob tube for awhile.

Yahoo News reports that one of the candidates in the race to become Fairhope, Alabama’s next mayor is none other than Willie Bean Roscoe P. Coltrane, a 7-year-old yellow Labrador retriever. His owner, Tress Turner, decided to take a satirical poke at politics by launching the slobbering canine into the race.

“When a little dog barks at him, he cringes and he runs away,” owner Tress Turner told the Press-Register in a story Sunday.

Is it just me, or does it sound like ole Willie boy shares the same trait as a certain (cough) current (cough) president?

Yahoo News also reports that Willie Bean doesn’t have a realistic shot at being Fairhope’s next mayor since the July 15th qualifying deadline has passed.

Um, even if Willie Bean DID make the July 15th deadline, he wouldn’t have a realistic shot at being the next mayor simply because he ENJOYS LICKING HIS BALLS WAY TOO MUCH AND CRAPS ON THE RUG! Although, that’s not to say that none of Fairhope’s previous mayors weren’t guilty of the same offenses. BOO-YAH! Oh yeah – up high!

However, it may not be too late for Willie Bean to join the Presidential race. I hear they welcome that kind of racy behavior in the White House.

Oh the things Willie Bean could do to a cigar…

University of Florida Wins Yet ANOTHER Title!

My wonderful husband went to both undergrad and grad schools at the University of Florida (back in the day) so I’m not so sure why he looked so shocked when I relayed this news to him today.

Yahoo News reports that the “prestigious” Princeton Review survey deemed University of Florida as the #1 party school in the nation stealing the title away from West Virginia University and beating out the University of Mississippi and Penn State University. Go Gators!

Unless you live on another planet in a galaxy far far away, you probably know by now that The Gators won two national basketball championships in 2006 and 2007 and one national football title at the end of the 2006 season. And one university spokesman is using these impressive stats as the collective source behind all the non-stop partying.

“The fact that we have three national championships in two years is probably a major contributing factor,” spokesman Steve Orlando said. “We know our students like to have a good time.”

Uh, yeah. Just slightly.

My darling husband refuses to believe this news and told me that the Princeton Review can just go f*ck itself. Party pooper.

If you’re a Florida Gator, do you agree or disagree with the Princeton Review’s findings?

Also, have you touched Tim Tebow yet? C’mon – I wanna know! What a hunk (swoon)…

Virgin Galactic Showcases its Space Aircraft – Woah Boy …

Well, this article will really appeal to those of you that make over $1M per year since it’s gonna cost you a cool 200 Grand to sign up. So if you happen to be a Trekkie that makes a lot of bank, this one’s really gonna get your rocks off.

Yahoo News reports that Virgin Galactic, Sir Richard Branson’s space company (yes, that’s right – space company), is showing off its new mothership to the world.

The mothership is basically a pretty, white airplane with room in the middle from where the spaceship (God, I can’t believe I’m actually typing this nonsense) will launch. And interestingly enough, Virgin Galactic hasn’t even started building the actual spaceship. Fancy that.

More than 250 wackjobs customers have already paid either the $200K or a deposit to reserve their spaces in Sir Richard Branson’s fantasy spaceship. I’m sure they’re all in the process of getting some custom spacesuits made right now…

Word on the street is that Tom Cruise is going to greet all the spaceship’s passengers along with Xenu, his little alien friend. Who said he’d never work in Hollywood again?!

What do you think about this crap? Would you shell out $200K to possibly get to outer space?
