Russell Brand Determined to Rock Sherri Shepherd's Flat World


· "I feel a combination of relaxed and aroused in your company," Russell Brand told the ladies of The View today, though it appeared he was most enamored by Sherri Shepherd, whose vow of celibacy he was intent on breaking. "Somehow I think I walked away from this show with a date," Shepherd later Tweeted. Yes, and somehow Brand walked away from the show with her bra and two of her spare wigs. Clip below.

· Maura Tierney's ongoing breast cancer battle will necessitate a recast on NBC's pushed-to-midseason Parenthood.

· Casey Wilson wasn't fired from being Saturday Night Live for being fat, claims an NBC spokesperson.

· Brad Pitt paid $80,000 to create a home for his children's pet gerbil, claims a totally reliable UK tabloid. I'm sure Richard Gere would have let him crash somewhere for free.

    1. Russel Brand, completely neutering the concept of rebellion since 2000.
    2. He said that to me. I ended up screaming "What fucking script? I just want to know where the fucking frozen yogurt stand is!"
    3. Considering that Parenthood: The Series, was already done, and dusted in the early 90s, I think the whole thing should be dropped, and everyone involved moved onto better shows. As for Maura Tierney, get well soon, and get a better series soon too.
    4. Why was she fired, did she accidentally do something that was actually funny and made everyone else on the show feel bad about themselves?
    5. Oh, a Richard Gere/Gerbil joke! OMG! I NEVER saw that one coming. I have to get to the hospital, my sides have split.
    Damn, I'm feeling bitchy tonight.

    I know, I know. If anything, crafting that punchline just made me realize how few celebrities have taken up Gere's gerbil slack. Huzzah, Brad Pitt.

  • Lowbrow says:

    Russell Brand has taken a shine to Sherri Shepherd? She might as well just already add another notch on her proverbial abortion bedpost.

  • Girl86 says:

    I have a soft spot for the new Parenthood series, because they paid me to just sit in a complete stranger's house, watch the person's cable, and eat an absurd amount of delicious snacks (and I didn't even have to subject myself to being captured on film). Why would I deny NBC the chance to let them provide me with that dream job?

    Heh heh, "gerbil slack..."
