I’m pretty much wigging out over the tremendousness of the trailer for the ‘Behind The Candelabra‘, the story of Liberace (played by Michael Douglas) and his paid gigolo long-time boyfriend and chauffeur, Scott Thorson (effortlessly portrayed by Matt Damon).  Good LORT this is going to be a CLASSIC.

Take a look at the clip, won’t you?


Honestly. I could watch that 90 second trailer on a gotdamb loop.  Get out you feathers and furs and get IN jacuzzi tubs, because THIS will be EHHHH-PIC.

(NONE of this has been written with a drop of sarcasm, by the by. Did you SEE pretty-girl Rob Lowe??)  I’ve got the vapors.

Catherine Zeta Jones Claims She Was Punched By Photographer



While leaving a London hotel with her husband Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta Jones a paparrazo punched her in the chin. Zeta-Jones could be heard shouting, How dare you punch me!” and, “I want a police officer right now! He punched me in my face.” Douglas came to the defense of his wife grabbing and pushing one photographer while yelling expletives. After the incident, Zeta-Jones could be seen holding a hand to her mouth.

Last September, Catherine was mobbed by cameras at JFK Airport while Michael was still battling cancer. She could be seen crying and saying “I’m tired of this.” Up until that point, she had been having a great day. Catherine Zeta-Jones was honored earlier that day as a Commander of the Order of the British Empire.

Define IRONY. Commander of the Order of the British Empire.

Even screaming at the paps, CZJ looks damn good.



Michael Douglas has “beaten his cancer”…

Michael Douglas and Matt Lauer

In an interview with The Today Show this morning, actor Michael Douglas told Matt Lauer that he was cancer-free. “I’ve got [cancer] beat,” he said in his first interview since undergoing treatment for throat cancer. Douglas’ last interview was with David Letterman last year when he was promoting “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps.” This was around the time he announced he was battling cancer.

I feel good, relieved,” Douglas told Lauer. “The tumor is gone. But, you know, I have to check out on a monthly basis now to maintain.” As he recovers from radiation and chemotherapy, he says he stills has months to go of getting checked out, but that the last six months have been “a wild ride.” As he recovers, the actor says his appetite is back and he’s slowly gaining the weight he lost during his illness. “I lost about 32 lbs.,” he says. “And I’ve put about 12 back. But, I mean, I got another 20, 25 to go.

Douglas’ next project will be a biopic about Liberace co-starring Matt Damon. “So you’ve allowed yourself to look that far down the road?” asked Lauer. “Yeah, oh, absolutely,” said Douglas. “I think the odds are with the tumor gone and what I know about this particular type of cancer that I’ve got it beat.

Glad that Michael feels healthy enough to return to work and hope continues to be cancer-free.
