Faster than you can say "Faggot Rehab", workplace morale seems to be going from bad to worse over at the set of Grey's Anatomy. First, the planned spin-off has people "fuming" (well, everybody accept the one who will star in it), and second, Katherine Heigl apparently wants more hazard pay in order to keep working with a homophobe she obviously despises.
Speaking of bigots...Why I Hate People Exhibit A: The guy who published this piece "Why I Hate Blacks" -- if you're trying to be racist for laughs, you have to at least be funny. Why I Hate People Exhibit B: The lame ass apology from the publisher. Kenneth Eng, Tim Hardaway, and some white gay racist should be the team captains for the next season of Survivor. The surprise twist -- they all starve to death. Happy End of Black History Month!
Is this press release that's been making the rounds on the Interweb tacky or awesome? I can't decide, so it's probably both.

Online Safe Deposit Boxes Help Families Avoid Ugly Legal Hassles
New York, NY - February 27, 2007 — What do former playmate Anna Nicole Smith and Godfather of Soul James Brown have in common? No, Brown didn’t father Smith’s child (at least as far as we know.) But even if they didn’t get together in life they share the same problem in death — their embalmed bodies are trapped in legal limbos. And both could have been resting in peace by now if they’d had Online Safety Deposit Boxes from KeepYouSafe.com.
So apparently Norbit Eddie Murphy says he didn't "storm out" after his Oscar loss, but instead planned on leaving after his award was announced even if he had won so that he could spend time with his family. Way to stick by your co-stars who were performing later and/or still up for awards, Pluto Nash!
What's most surprising about this particular excuse from Black Dr. Dolittle Mr. Murphy is that I could have sworn that he and his family would want to stay out later -- I seem to remember that his girl likes to party all the time, party all the time, party all the time...
There's no way this will be as awesome as it sounds, but I'm setting up the TiVo for a Season Pass anyway (in case the John Waters wishlist doesn't automatically pick it up):
Court TV becomes "cult TV" as writer/director John Waters (Hairspray, Serial Mom) takes the starring role in an irreverent new series that shows how love and marriage, in the words of the underground auteur himself, "goes together like a horse and the glue factory." With a tip of the veil (both wedding and funeral) to some of television's most famous scripted mystery and murder anthologies, each episode features the fabled director introducing us to a husband and wife whose marriage, despite its happy beginnings, inevitably leads to spousal murder.
As if that's not wicked enough, DC has teamed up to promote with a corresponding comic book of the first episode.
