Kim Cattrall On Men [Divorce Sucks]

Kim Cattrall photo from 1999
The ever-lovely Kim Cattrall was on the Howard Stern Show today to promote the film Meet Monica Velour, in which she plays an adult film star named Linda Romanoli. Apparently Brian Dennehy, who plays a character called Pop Pop, gets naked, but Kim does not. This is unfortunate. But the reason I’m writing about Ms. Cattrall’s interview with Howard Stern today is to discuss what she said about men. Read more »

Howard Stern, George Takei Support Gilbert Gottfried

Quick update on Gilbert Gottfried and his ousting as the voice of the Aflac duck. (Or as we put it, Gilbert GotFired.) Howard Stern said on his SiriusXM radio show today that Gilbert never had a squeaky clean image, so for Aflac to can him now is stupid. That’s exactly what I said. George Takei also weighed in, according to Howard, saying that he didn’t really care about Gilbert’s jokes. (I’m paraphrasing; I’ll update if I can find the exact quote.)

If you do a Google Realtime Search for George Takei Gilbert Gottfried there are a couple of references to the above, like this tweet:

Hey if George Takei can take a joke and still follows Gilbert Gottfried …I dont see a problem #SuluRocks

Another tweeter (twitterer? Which is grammatically correct? And does it matter?) wrote:

With Gilbert Gottfried’s ouster, Aflac needs a new voice for their duck. I suggest George Takei. #NewAflacDuck

Not a bad idea, actually. The duck would have a deeper voice, though. Oh, my.

Michael Lohan Defends Daughter Lindsay [But He Should Just Shut Up]

Michael Lohan is speaking out about the accusations that his daughter Lindsay assaulted someone at rehab.

This is not a surprise. And it’s nice that he’s supporting his daughter. It is.

Here’s what I wonder, though. Why say anything at all? Is there a point when you decide that you have to speak to the press about your life and the lives of your children, and once you’ve made that decision, there’s no turning back?

Look at someone like Howard Stern. He makes his living talking. (Unlike Michael Lohan, who must make a living somehow, but we don’t know what he does.) He seems able to restrain himself from talking about his children’s private lives, and he almost never mentions his ex-wife Alison. (I imagine this was part of their divorce agreement, although I don’t know this for a fact.)

That’s only one of the many differences between Michael Lohan and Howard Stern, of course. The main one is that Howard is incredibly talented and is the most successful radio personality of all time, arguably the most successful media personality of all time. (Go ahead. Debate me on this topic. You will lose.)

Back to père Lohan. If I were talking to him, I would ask the following:

Dude. What’s up with the press conferences? The talk show appearances? Did it ever occur to you that maybe you should just be there for your daughter? What’s that? You don’t know what to say to reporters when they bombard you with questions? Here’s an idea. Are you ready? You might want to write this down. Got a pen? Okay. Here you go:

“No comment.”
