James Franco Causes Mania At Inside The Actors StudioS

More than 250 industry insiders were turned away from a Franco appearance on the A&E program, and by "industry insiders," I'm sure they mean ladies who are totally trying to move in on your boyfriend and his sexually confusing mustache.

  • Tickets to the show's taping were initially made available to the general public and demand was so high that the studio simply didn't have the space to house all of the would-be spectators. Franco was there to support his new film, And Then This Dude Fucking Cut His Own Arm Off!, which has been widely lauded by critics. [Contact Music]
  • A Thanksgiving fire gutted Heidi Fleiss's house, causing the former madam to lose many of her possessions. File this under "things that suck more than having to endure annoying relatives for three hours." [TMZ]
  • Real Housewife of Atlanta Kim Zolciak is denying reports that photographs of her smoking a cigarette were taken while she was with child. Thus breaks my streak of never talking about any of the Real Housewives in Dirtbag; let us never speak of them again. [D Listed]
  • A source says that Lindsay Lohan is getting "plenty of work offers" during her court-ordered time in rehab. I'm betting that one of those work offers is probably called "I Am Getting Plenty Of Work Offers: A Solo Acting Piece." [Digital Spy]
  • Michael Douglas took his family gallivanting around Disney World. I'd imagine that meanwhile, a team of hand-clasping tabloid concern mongers brainstormed headlines around the themes of cancer and courage and Perez Hilton used Microsoft Paint to forlornly doodle white spots on the star's throat along with "OMG" and "Cancer!."

  • Megan Fox and her husband, That One Dude From 90210 Or Like Melrose Place Or Whatever were in Disney World as well, where Megan slightly opened her mouth, parted her lips, and squinted at the camera in the couple's snapshots. The Sexyface Force is strong in this one. [Perez]
  • Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's kids spent Thanksgiving with their nannies. Do those kids even need nannies? Couldn't Brangie just let the children run free on the streets and trust that a pack of ever vigilant paparazzi would keep an eye on them?[Showbiz Spy
  • Totally legitimate couple Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift were spotted in Nashville, legitimately doing totally legitimate things that were not planned by any publicists of any form. [Perez]
  • Baby bump watch: Marky Mark edition! [Showbiz Spy]
  • Katy Perry would put her family first when the time comes to have kids, but I'm more concerned for there welfare when she tries to feed them those pressurized cans of Redi Whip she calls breasts. [Contact Music]
  • Colin Firth says he owes his success to dumb luck. Give yourself more credit, Colin. You've got a great set of eyebrows. [Showbiz Spy]
  • Lily Allen is reportedly planning to wed her boyfriend in the new year. My "want to give Lily Allen a supportive, encouraging hug" instinct grows stronger by the day. [Daily Mail]
  • Lil' Kim has recorded a Nicki Minaj diss track, although I don't think that was necessary. If I were Lil' Kim, every time someone pissed me off, I'd just press play on my giant portable boom box and fill their face with How Many Licks, one of the greatest musical achievements of modern times. [Huffington Post]
  • Justin Bieber sings to the homeless and elderly in his new video, which is called "Pray." Next week, he will be attending a wedding at Cana, where it's rumored that the wedding planner woefully underestimated the crowd's appetite for bread and wine. [Daily Mail]
  • Justin Bieber stuck around a book signing to meet 1,000 extra fans. Should I start calling him "Biebus Christ"? Maybe if he cures my leprosy. [Digital Spy]
  • Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has reportedly been offered a role in the sequel to this summer's Sylvester Stallone dick-fest The Expendables. That last sentence was so manly, I grew a robust mane of chest hair typing it. [Showbiz Spy]
  • Kelly Rowland owes the IRS almost $100K. I guess when Destiny's Child sang "Ladies, leave your man at home," Kelly Rowland thought they meant "accountant." [ONTD]
