Power presenters like Leonardo DiCaprio, Steve Martin and Chandra Wilson came to dole out podium sass 'n' support.
So, of course, the tough-talkin' TV doc Chandra was flooded with queries about how the set of Grey's has been since Isaiah returned from thought rehab, or whatever he was doing.
"Are things on set different now?" I asked C.W.
"We're so schedule conscious that there's no time to even think about any sensitivities," she said, semiducking my query. "We've got some work to do, and that's what we're concentrating on."
Let the healing begin!
But, uh, doubt it'll last. At least, that's what my inside snoops on the set tell me. Other doubting Debbies are as follows:
Thanks to you, I no longer have aha moments, à la Oprah. I now think purely in Tedisms. Case in point, my New Year's resolution is to find Toothy Tile. Yesterday, while flipping through remote cable channels, I saw a really bad 1982 move starring Kate Jackson. Her husband, a doctor, was leading a double life in L.A. at gay bars. His first fling: Harry Hamlin! Harry was actually very good, maybe too good. They had several kissing and bed scenes. Is Harry Toothy?
Dear Sugar Lips:
Even I’m getting sick of this one.
First, it was Britney. Now, the supermarket tabloids make it seem like Cameron is dying to get Justin back. It seems like after a breakup with Justin Timberlake, the girl always ends up looking desperate. Is he coldhearted?
Dear Just Curious:
Not coldhearted, just hard to get over. J.T. is a pretty good catch, and gals who get dumped by him find it hard to say sayonara to the guy who’s bringing sexy back.
Sniffer Stella from Two Schnoz-Straining Blind Vices is definitely Michelle Trachtenberg. She has such a wholesome image, yet the girl is always at the same parties as her party-girl peers. Am I right?
Dear Sniff Snoop:
Wrong, my little guesser-gal. Think more petite and much less sweet.
Looking back, I wonder if FedEx really loved Brit or the money. I always secretly thought Kevin Federline and Shar Jackson were still an item. Comments? Was it a youthful, unrealistic match or the calculated, taking advantage of America's favorite twit?

Is it me, or is Madonna's pseudo-British accent completely annoying? I'd understand if she were being interviewed by the U.K. media, but she does it on U.S. interviews, too. It comes and goes! Dunno why it drives me nuts.

Uh, no. We're both attached. Sorry, sugar-puss.
Am I completely losin' it, or is Katie Holmes choosing couture/designer outfits clearly made for older women such as Nicole Kidman, who can wear these clothes with effortless grace? It’s sad to watch.
Dear Missin' the Oldies:
Hollywood is what it is. Things evolve. Pretty soon, they'll start giving out the awards for Best Combover and Best Crotch Shot. Welcome to a new millennium of classiness!

I'm on to you, Tedilicious! Sniffer Stella has got to be Kate Bosworth...squeaky-clean rep and rail thin superfast (without the typical menu of fist burgers for lunch)! I know I'm right, but like Jessica after a date with Mr. Mayer, I need to be validated!
Am I missing something? Since the Kelly Ripa-Clay Aiken-Rosie O'Donnell annoyance began, I've been pondering where a homosexual's hand can go that a heterosexual's can't. Enlighten me, please. Thanks.
Everything okay with you, boyfriend? Your writing seems to be "preoccupied" this week. Even your mailbag replies are missing their usual snarkiness. Seriously, I hope all is well. By the way, your grays are smashing!
Who died and made you head bitch in charge? I assure you everything is peachy keen, and I’ll make sure to be extra bitchlicious next week, just for you!
