The British Are Coming!

I go through phases of loving the Brits and loathing them. Oh you think you sound so posh because you have an accent! Dennis Quaid over Hugh Grant! Maybe not. Dishreader, in the end, I adore the Brits -- the history, literature, the royal scandals, Bridget Jones. I have a British man lulling me to sleep via hypnosis from my iPod (Thanks, Paul McKenna!) every night. I might just name my first-born after Judi Dench, Daniel Craig and all of the Durans. When I saw the commercial for the fall Maury-Povich-esque talk show featuring a Brit, I thought: I'm there. Jeremy Kyle's show seems tawdry and awesome. Simon Cowell was awesome. Yes, I want drama and I want a Brit doling out in-your-face advice. Just Youtubed the show and it got old fast. Never mind!!!

Congratulations to Mamie Gummer (Meryl Streep's daughter) and Benjamin Walker who just got hitched! Now that's a lovely young theater couple.

In quick hits: McDreamy Eric Dane has entered rehab--sounds good, all going according to plan. I love the new poster for 2 and 1/2 Men featuring Ashton.

And finally, GMA's Dan Harris is my new hero for his interview with Paris Hilton. Just watch and be amazed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ik4QFzQm46U
