We may just go with 'Baby the Entertainer' in case she grows up to be a black comedian." [People]

There were a series of devices I was offered to wear which protect my [naughty] bits. And I gave Keira the choice in a very gentlemanly way, 'You can chose either the furry soft, the pink diaper or the Spandex." Keira Knightley: "I don't remember choosing. I think he's making that up. Unless I was feeling particularly malicious, I don't think I would have chosen to put a man in a skin-colored diaper. I could have been feeling particularly malicious, however, that's entirely possible." [ People]

She's judgmental and dictatorial, telling people how they've got to live their lives. And a superior religious self-righteousness … that's just not what Wonder Woman is about.

"Since the headline that a second nanny sued me for sexual harassment, I have been passed over for at least three commercials, any of which could have ultimately resulted in income of over $1 million," he said. [MSNBC]



I'm not a woman nor anyone who needs Jenny Craig, but I for one loved Queen Latifah's commercials; instead of being about 'I lost xx pounds', it was about 'being a size healthier', and for reasons I'm really bad at articulating, I think that's generally a much better message.

Lynda Carter's comments rock, and I already loved her for being one of the first celebrities to do a commercial about Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
