Katheen Turner is still really unpleasant in a fan encounter (maybe she has good reason to be!) but she sure makes a great point in this piece about her life and career, in which she quotes herself as saying, “I don't look like I did 30 years ago—get over it!”

Is the male wide stance really such a bad thing?
Giorgio Moroder is back with his first solo album in 30 years, the lead singel from which is “74 Is the New 24”. I wish he were one of the apparently 30 billion people rumored to be working with Madonna. He is, however, working with Kylie and Sia.
Check out his first song/video here.
As surprising as it may be, Judge Wapner—the most famous People's Court judge—turns 95 years old today. Time flies when you're doing time.
Born on the exact same day is British actress Nova Pilbeam. Pilbeam may not be a household name, but she holds a very high distinction: She appeared in Hitchcock's original version of The Man Who Knew Too Much an incredible 80 years ago, and is also Hitchcock's oldest living leading lady—she starred in 1937's less memorable (but still solid) Young and Innocent.
Debbie Harry looked a-MAH-zing at her U.K. photo exhibition unveiling...and yes, I'm still pissed off that Happy Endings was canceled.

Twice a year, I get on a train to New Jersey in the early morning hours, spend a day hustling to get autographs and pic-withs from celebrities who sell those things at an event called Chiller Theatre, then attempt to make it home in one piece. I've had two disastrous experiences—a crippling snowstorm and the time I was overwhelmed by a virus. This time, the worst thing that happened to me was spending hours waiting for a signed picture with Honeymooners star Joyce Randolph, who most people I told the story to thought was long dead. (SPOILER ALERT: She's not.)
For the second time, I arm-twisted my friend John to be my starfucking wingman. How I got him to meet me at 7AM and carry my bag and take all my pic-withs, I'll never know. But I think he has a couple more in him before he refuses the job, which he will...eventually.
Our first roadblock was when we arrived and no shuttle from the Sheraton was there to greet us at the station. A serious-faced young nerd took it upon himself to call the place and, in an almost alarmingly professional tone, inquire as to the fucking whereabouts of our transporation, only to be told they weren't supposed to have shuttles until after 10AM (an hour after the early-bird tickets we held went into effect), but would send one ASAP. Long minutes passed until he called back, only to be told the hotel wouldn't send its first shuttle until 10:50AM! It was beyond stupid for them to leave people at the station like that, though they passively blamed Chiller.
We paid $20 for a town car (the driver was dozing near the train tracks), but the kid rode free since he'd been our mouthpiece.

Last weekend was my third of four celeb-soaked encounters in the space of a month—first I hit up the Courts Celebrities Fan Fest, then New York Comic Con, then another edition of the Hollywood Show in L.A. (KEEP READING) and finally this past weekend's Chiller Theatre.
More on Chiller very soon.
First up, the L.A. Hollywood Show was quieter this time, leading some attendees to wonder if this type of non-genre autograph show might be dying off quicker than Old Hollywood. But it wasn't nearly as dead as the Courts version, so there was still a good flow of starfuckers to keep most of the celebs busy—at least on Saturday. (Sunday was a graveyard—never go if you can only go on a Sunday, when a chunk of the celebs will have decided to suddenly get a bad cold and not show.)

You can't go wrong with current cheesecake shots of Playboy Playmates who are anywhere from 59 years old to 82. Great, funny, fun-loving and life-affirming shots.
