  • Kat Von D did a radio interview in which she attempted to justify, rationalize and explain dating Jesse James.

"I'm a believer that we're all human and we're all capable of making mistakes. I think if I were to be crucified for my drug addiction three years ago now, it would be hard to live with that. I'm sober now, and it's awesome. But I have made mistakes, too... I've got a lot of respect for Jesse and how he handled it." And: "I've known Jesse since I was 22, actually. We've always been friends… He had his show on Discovery; that's how we met. I was looking for some advice when I first started on Miami Ink." [NYDN]

1. Lady CaCa not being on the show is a good thing, but Chelsea Handler hosting that shindig leaves a bad taste in my mouth, so yep, still not watching.

2. Mariah, s'il vous plait, don't fix something that ain't broken. You doing a new Christmas album is just as dreadful as MJ's Thriller 25th Anniversary edition was.

3. As long as they've dropped the dreadful idea of Jamie Foxx playing Robert Nesta Marley, you get no complaints from me.
