KIE-POW!!! Butt Head Kiefer Sutherland Head Butts Fashion Designer. Valerie Bertinelli Plans to Help Kirstie Alley Drop Some More Unwanted Poundage. Mia Farrow Ends Hunger Strike Because No One Cares. Oh, That and Health Concerns. KFC vs WWE! Oprahmania is running rampant, brother!!!

 

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Actor Kiefer Sutherland has been charged with misdemeanor assault after he was accused of head-butting fashion designer Jack McCollough at a New York nightclub early Tuesday, police said.

At last, some entertainment news we can use. I’m not going to even mention politics today except to say that I’m not going to mention politics today. So, check this action right here, Kiefer’s in this bar in NYC on Tuesday evening chit chatting with none other than former Suddenly Susan star Brooke Shields when renowned fashion designer Jack McCollough stepped in between them to get to the bar & inadvertantly bumped into Shields. Well, let me tell you, this must’ve pissed off Sutherland something fierce & following a verbal altercation, he allegedly head butted McCollough, injuring his nose. Okay, so either you don’t want to get between McCollough when he’s trying to get his drink on or between Sutherland when he’s trying to mack on Blue Lagoon star Brooke Shields with whom he starred with in Freeway co-starring a budding Reese Witherspoon. I’m gonna’ go with Mr. Kiefer “I’m a ticking time bomb waiting to explode” Sutherland as the instigator on this one. I think the conversation that ensued might’ve gone something like this... McCollough: Oooh, excuse me you two, oh, hiii Brooke!  Sutherland: Hey, watch where the f*ck you’re going fag! McCollough: Excuse me, Bitch, I’m just trying to get my drink on, it’s not my fault that...BAM!!!! Kiefer head butts him right in the kisser. Or something along those lines amid the crazy club lighting & pulsing house music. I’m not trying to stereotype fashion designers or anything like that but I’d never actually heard of Jack McCollough before so I’m only stereotypically imagining. I mean I’ve seen Project Runway...so, I’m not trying to offend anyone...I’m uh, just sayin’. Kiefer seems to have quite the temper, & this time, it’s landed him in hot water. "Anyone who knows Jack McCollough knows that he would not hurt a fly," McCollough's spokesman said. "All we can say at this point is that he was the victim of a vicious, violent, unprovoked assault and that the matter is in the hands of the authorities." Sounds to me like Kiefer will be paying a stiff fine & is going to be doing some more probation & maybe a couple of hundred hours of community service before it’s all over. Jack McCollough, meabwhile, probably ought to be  looking over his shoulder for a while to avoid a sucker punch to the back of the head by the tempermental star of the very popular television series 24. Given Sutherland’s 2007 DUI conviction & subsequent probation, he may land himself back in the jailhouse. Ahhh, good times. I’m sure his father, Donald Sutherland is quite proud of Kiefer’s latest escapade. I swear to God, some people’s kids.

Now, on a more poignant note, after Jenny Craig gave Kirstie Alley the boot & hired Valerie Bertinelli to replace her, Kirstie went on to regain all the weight she had lost plus more for a grand total of 83 pounds! She said she messed up & went a little wild with her binge eating but 83 pounds in the span of a year is more than going a little wild. She’s very lucky she didn’t eat herself into a heart attack because you know what she was eating had to be absolute crap, probably an ass load of fast food everyday, not to mention desserts galore. Sources close to Alley say she’d been depressed following leaving Jenny Craig when new offers for acting jobs were few & far between coupled with Valerie Bertinelli’s more than stunning transformation may have triggered some jealousy. I don’t know what she had to be jealous of though, she looked by far the best she’s looked since her 80’s Cheers & movie heyday, starring in such films as the very funny Sibling Rivalry as well as Mad House, which had some pretty funny moments as well. Back in the day, especially on Cheers, Alley was piping hot & was a fantasy for many a young man, myself included. Once her career dried up however, her self esteem took a hit as well & she didn’t do a whole lot until she starred in the Showtime series Fat Actress, which, while it revitalized her career, seemed a little exploitative, and probably didn't help to pump up her already bruised psyche. Then came the Jenny Craig endorsement deal which saw her lose a lot of weight & probably bolstered her bank account a great deal & she looked great. The high point turned out to be when she revealed herself on Oprah wearing a bikini & wowing the audience. She seemed to regain some of her old sass & things looked like they were starting to really pick up for her. Then, Valerie Bertinelli took over as the Jenny Craig spokesperson & Alley went into a downward spiral but is now looking to bounce back & Bertinelli is volunteering to help her do it by offering to exercise with her. "She should come work out with me!" Bertinelli told People.com. "She should remember you can't do everything in one day [and] her exercise has to be consistent. She can do this. There's no doubt in my mind." Bertinelli said that she considered Alley a mentor & a role model & wouldn’t have been able to make her own transformation without her help & inspiration. Yawn. Well, that story was more than a little boring but without politics or violence to talk about, everything else seems a little blasé’ @ this point. I’m not saying I hate feel good stories such as this but to tell you all the truth, I almost fell asleep writing it.

Okay, let me try again. On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, Mia Farrow ended her what was to be a 3 week long hunger strike after 12 days due to health concerns. Her publicist said her health had taken a downturn & ordered her to stop the madness. Mia Farrow pretty much works nonstop in the realm of human rights, you definitely have to admire that about her, but this was just a publicity stunt that didn't pay off. She vowed to consume nothing but liquids for 21 days in order to protest international aid being cut off to Darfur but fell 11 days short. Sudan threw out 13 international aid agencies from the region following the International Criminal Court issuing an arrest warrant for Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir on March 4 of this year, accusing him of perpetrating genocide by killing over 300,000 people & also forcing 2.5 million to flee their homes in the government's campaign against rebel forces. Perhaps Farrow should've set a more realistic goal from the beginning & had her publicist arrange a big media blitz that could've been there upon her completion of her fast. Then, she might've raised a few more eyebrows. The fasting baton will be handed off to renowned billionaire entrepeneur, adventurer, bon vivant & all around super swell guy, Richard Branson who will start his infinitely more realistic 3 day fast a week earlier than planned. The sad part is, Farrow's hunger strike was mostly for nothing because the live video she had posted on her website & YouTube to further her cause had less than 700 views, making virtually no difference in the amount of exposure & light being shed upon the subject...Okay, never mind, this is draining as well. Obviously, I'm not in favor of what's going on there but this is a perfect example of a celebrity with delusions of grandeur, with Farrow thinking that her not eating was going to make the international community & the U.N. rise up & put a stop to it when the only way stop it is to remove that murderous bastard from power. Now, does anyone think he is going to go peacefully? No. Unfortunately, it most probably will require military action & who if anybody would be expected to lead in that action?...wait for it...The U.S.A. of course, who else? I'm sorry Darfur, but our military is stretched a wee bit thin @ the moment in Iraq & Afghanistan & out on the ocean chasing pirates to invade and ultimately occupy another Muslim country, which is what would invariably happen. Nope, I am sorry but I am just not feeling it with this one either. Let's see, how about the frenzy Oprah created with her KFC free meal coupons? I don't think so. Maybe if we threw Oprah, Mia & Kirstie into a WWE cage match with only 1 piece of Kentucky Grilled Chicken to eat between them, who would come out alive? KFC & the WWE present: Battle Royale 09 featuring Oprah, Mia & Kirstie! Don't miss it folks, this one is for all the chicken! Okay, actually, it's only for just the 1 piece. Screw it...I give up. It's not worth it.
