Culpability

Let us bid adieu to Mr. Robert Culp: star of television and screen, civil rights activist, Corgi-lover.

Yes, that's right. Friend of Felt Up Shazza C. sent in this photo of my new favorite recently-dead star, Robert Culp and his two Corgis wearing funny visors:



Sir, I did not know you, but you had excellent taste in pups. RIP.

No Other Val Dude Can Touch Him

Val Kilmer
(who was in Austin for the SWSW Film Festival premiere of MacGruber) keeps growing in my esteem. He is awesome. Just look at him! He keeps on getting nuttier and nuttier. He's practically the Grand Poobah of New Mexico, clearly doesn't give a fig about his appearance, and was genius in Real Genius. He plays the villain in MacGruber, which gives me hope that it might be a funny movie.

Looking the way he does, he should totally play the Ronnie Van Zandt role in the upcoming (in my mind) Lynyrd Skynyrd biopic We Died So That Kid Rock May Flourish. Alternatively, he could play the lead in the Lifetime movie I Rhyme Diabetes With Why A Beat Us: The Bret Michaels Story. On the other hand, he kind of has a Vince Neil vibe going, too. Oh, hell, just insert the overweight aging/and/or dead rocker of your choice...

Kill Il 2

Jesus. I can't decide who Quentin Tarantino is starting to resemble more:

Bubba Ho-Tep?

Or Kim Jong Il as "Team America" puppet?

Perhaps a bit of both.

WTF Non-News Story of The Day

Well, gee. I hadn't realized that the late Corey Haim had a new girlfriend before he died, and that that girlfriend was DAISY DE LA HOYA FROM "DAISY OF LOVE" AND "ROCK OF LOVE"!

According to E Online, Daisy was a Lost Boys fan (of course) and is dealing with her grief via Twitter (naturally):

Things appeared to be looking up for Corey Haim when he died.

Not only did the fallen 38-year-old actor have eight film projects in the works, but he also had a new love interest who wanted to rescue him from substance abuse.

After being introduced by Corey Feldman shortly before Haim died, he began dating 27-year-old Daisy de la Hoya, the star of VH1 reality show Daisy of Love

"I'm sooooooo devastated right now," de la Hoya tweeted this morning. "This is the worst day ever I can't believe this."

The romance between the two was very new. "Daisy loved The Lost Boys, and she always had a crush on Corey," a source close to De la Hoya tells us. "Their first official date was two weeks ago, but they'd been hanging out a little while before that. Corey invited her to the Playboy Mansion. Corey Feldman came, too."

De la Hoya apparently wanted to help Haim with his struggles. "Daisy knew Corey was doing a lot of drugs—especially prescription meds," our source says. "She thought he was kind and talented, and she wanted to rescue him. She became his confidant over the last few weeks. He told her a lot."

Although their relationship was new, De la Hoya was already excited about where things could lead. "They weren't in an exclusive relationship, but they were having a lot of fun getting to know each other and seeing what would happen," our source says. "Corey told Daisy she is a beautiful person with a beautiful heart."

A rep for De la Hoya tells us she was "bawling and inconsolable" when she heard the news about Haim's tragic death this morning.

De la Hoya also tweeted, "Why do I always fall for the lost soul? We could of been lost together, now your lost forever.... Ill miss you."

Since Miss La Hoya is in the midst of mourning, I will refrain from correcting her grammar (sorry, I can't stand it--it's "could HAVE been lost together," dear).

What a strange, sad, crazy world we live in!

Which Scary Skull Looked Worse?

In order to get our minds off the tragic, if not all that surprising death of Corey Haim, lets play another edition of the game called Who Looked Worse?

For this very special Oscar Edition, let's take a looksee at Ms. Sarah Jessica Parker:

In my humble opinion, she is too orange, too squinty, too thin, and her hair is reminiscent of Gary Oldman in Bram Stoker's Dracula (what is this, a new trend? Wampyre hair is sweeping Los Angeles, apparently!).

Now, compare and contrast with Miss Suzy Amis-- actress, fifth wife of James Cameron, death head:


(image via el espectador) The new "American Gothic"?

Granted, she is 48 years old, a tad older than SJP (three years), but is similarly skeletal and just plain frightening to behold. When you search "Suzy Amis Oscars" on Google, things like "How old is Suzy Amis?" and "Who was that old lady with James Cameron?" and "Was that James Cameron's mother?" come back, which is sad. She needs a) blush and b) food.

Quick review:

Quaid Quimespree?

There's good news and bad news in the continuing Quaids Crisis. The bad news is: Randy's gray hair and olden-timey mountain man beard that I posted about earlier were actually from a court appearance in December, not the one that took place this week. He is currently sporting leprauchan-ish orange hair and no beard. Boooooo. Booooooo, Randy Quaid, booooooo!


(image via Radar Online)

The good news, at least for us, is that while in court the Quaids were served with papers for three--count 'em three--new lawsuits! Huzzah! Quaid Court will be in session for a good, long time. According to Radar Online:

A source tells RadarOnline.com that just prior to the hearing a process server appeared and served the couple with three separate lawsuits, prompting Evi to almost lose her cool.

“The process server walked up to them and Evi told her to get away from her,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “She was pi**ed. So the server went up to the bailiff and the bailiff walked over to them and told them they had to take the paperwork.”

The lawsuits were filed by the Quaid’s former private investigator, Becky Altringer, RadarOnline.com has confirmed. We spoke to Altringer who told us, “I’m just so happy because for so long I haven’t been able to find them.”

Altringer said she is suing the couple for $17,200, which includes damages to the mobile home she says they trashed as well as money Altringer says the Quaids never paid her.

Let me get this straight: The Quaids hired a private investigator, wrecked her trailer (were they living in it? was it a party pad?) and then disappeared so that she couldn't track them down. First of all: Awesome. Secondly, how good a P.I. could she be? It's RANDY QUAID running around with a Golden Globe and a fur coat and a crazy wife, for God's sake.

And the saga goes on.

I Was Told There Would Be THREE Cupcakes

Say what you will about Miss Kirstie Alley (personally, I go back and forth between admiring her chutzpah and loathing the very core of her being, it just kind of depends on my mood) but she has excellent taste in dogs:

I know that look.

The Continuing QUAIDS Crisis

It has been quiet--too quiet--on the Quaids front of late, but thankfully, nutty nutballs Randy and Evi finally showed up in California for their defrauding-an-innkeeper court case. And to bolster their ironclad case they brought Randy's 1988 Golden Globe for "LBJ:The Early Years," according to TMZ, as a "witness."

Also in attendance in the courtroom: Randy's awesome new BEARD:

I'm really liking this new look (he apparently stopped dying his hair, and it's a huge improvement). He kind of has a Hatfield/McCoy-funeral-goer, moonshine-runner-dressed-up-for-an-interrogation-by-the-Revenuers look about him that is very appealing.

As for Evi, I hereby nominate her to play the lead in the Lifetime movie A Shot At Tenure: The Amy Bishop Story. Just put a bob wig on her et voila! You got a second Golden Globe to be your character witness...
