Kathy Landin

Kathy Landin is a freelance internet pop-culture junkie (and web video producer). For a brief time in 2011, she was THIS close to being Charlie Sheen's social media intern for the summer. She's blogged for local TV stations, anonymous dating adventures and stupid advice columns. Mostly she entertains herself by practicing the fine art of idiocy, which you can watch in Kathy Landin's "I'm an Idiot" Show. Or, if you have a short attention span, get 140 characters of idiocy on Twitter.

Oprah Revives Sofia from ‘The Color Purple’ to Chat with Tyler Perry’s Medea [VIDEO]

No matter how you feel about Oprah, it's tough to deny she's always had mad acting chops -- something she proves pretty adorably in this promo for her OWN cable network, wherein she adeptly revives her character Sofia from the iconic 1985 film ‘The Color Purple' and pits her opposite Tyler Perry’s famous (or rather, infamous) character Medea.

A Timeline of Lil’ Kim’s Many Changing Faces + Body Parts [PHOTOS]

It looks like Lil’ Kim has been having a lil’ work done. As near as we can tell, she took a photo of La Toya Jackson to a plastic surgeon raising money for his mom's heart transplant and told him what she was going for, so he's trying his damndest to get her there.

Because, seriously, what?

Celebrities Take to Twitter as President Obama Is Inaugurated for a Second Term

Just like us, when celebrities watch or are a part of something historical, they want to tweet about it. Which beats yet another missive about concert dates or a regretful shot of a naked body part.

Oh, and Michelle Obama has a new haircut!

Beyonce and Jay-Z Make Up for Bad Naming Skills by Spending $200,000 on Blue Ivy’s First Birthday

It hardly seems possible, but the grapevine is just sure that new mommy and daddy Beyonce and Jay-Z spent upwards of $200,000 to celebrate the first birthday of their adorable and questionably-named bundle of joy, Blue Ivy.

We don’t want to believe it because all we got for our first birthday was a face full of cheap frosting, but perhaps the rumors don’t lie.

Kim Kardashian Cashes In on Her Own Self-Loathing With Plus-Sized Clothing Line

Always on the lookout for ways to make a buck, Kim Kardashian will take bags and bags of money for promoting weight loss supplements and then launch a line of clothing for plus-sized women.
