'Bonnie Hunt,' poop scooping, old lesbians


Who knew that Emmy-winning actor Tony Shalhoub was so much like his OCD detective on "Monk" in real life?

Apparently he's so germophobic that he doesn't like to touch menus in restaurants, he said today on our formerly favorite lunchtime chat fest, "The Bonnie Hunt Show." And then Shalhoub demonstrated his brother Dan's invention that makes curbing your dog a little less, well, vile.

It's "The Sha-Poopie!" No bending, touching or wiping required! (The folks over at "American Inventor" weren't too keen on it, so bro could use the plug on national TV).

And boy did we need a palate cleanser after that, and it was provided in the form of late-night talker and eight-time Emmy-nominated writer Spike Feresten, who guided us to this Web site for a compendium of Men Who Look Like Old Lesbians. He's on there, too! (So's Bruce Jenner and Minnesota's Senator-elect Al Franken!)

Oh, the high-larity.

Oscar Contenders

  • So "The Dark Knight" didn't make it into the final five after all, never mind that critical and popular support. Let's just call the comic-inspired mega-hit "The Biggest Snubee."

    Here are the best picture contenders in a race that, two weeks away from the Oscars, seems to be a foregone conclusion ("Slumdog") unless there's a come-from-behind possibility ("The Reader" anyone?)

    "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett; the politically timely "Milk;" rags-to-riches fairy tale, "Slumdog Millionaire," Holocaust best-seller-based drama "The Reader," and Watergate-era biopic "Frost/Nixon."

    Could "Button" and "Slumdog" split the vote, allowing another film to take the prize? Doesn't seem likely. After having clung to "Button" for months as what we thought would be the Academy voters' top vhoice, our money's now on "Slumdog." Momentum can't be ignored.

    Watch this blog for updates, ephemera and all manner of postulating.

Picture this

  • Mmmmm, chocolate Oscar. Not every star will walk away from the 81st annual Academy Awards with a trophy, but if they hit the high-profile Governor's Ball they can have pastry chef Sherry Yard's gold-dusted candy version. Also on the menu from celeb chef Wolfgang Puck is tuna tartare in sesame miso cones, chopped Chino Farms vegetable salad with ginger soy vinaigrette, Maine lobster and caviar. Serve it up!
