Nibbly Things: Julia Roberts Fails To Receive Tony Nomination

May 16th, 2006 // 7 Comments
  • I’m sure that Julia Roberts is cursing the day she agreed to take Broadway by storm. David Schwimmer was overlooked for his turn on Broadway as well. Oprah Winfrey received a nomination though. Go Oprah! [People]
  • That Brian Grazer is so wacky. Placing pictures of himself in people’s homes, leaving vials of urine in people’s homes, and putting his hands down Tom Ford‘s pants. [Rush & Molloy]
  • American illusionist David Blaine, who failed to break the world record for holding his breath underwater last week, has announced his next stunt will be living among wild animals in the jungle. In other words, David Blaine will be living as a homeless man in New York City. [Hollywood.com]
  • Is it really that shocking that Barbra Streisand asked to be comped for tickets to see Mission: Impossible III? Well, Malibu right-winger Jennifer Grossman is outraged. [Lowdown]
  • Paris Hilton‘s Mother’s Day gift for Kathy Hilton was stolen. “A delivery person from Christian Dior delivered the items to the residence, and set the package down on the sidewalk while trying to work the intercom system. At this point, a person came along and grabbed the items.” Seriously, do you think the whole thing was a set up for publicity? [TMZ]
  • Rapper JA Rule and his posse were bounced from Plumm nightclub after one of the pint-size rapper’s pals supposedly slapped a woman in the face. The group was “harassing models all night long” until one woman objected and began arguing with Rule’s pal. Play nice boys. [Page Six]
  • The mother of Pete Doherty‘s is writing a “Son, Dearest” tell-all. “She wants the world to know what it’s like to be the mother of a rock star who is also a heroin and crack addict,” a source told the London Sun. That’s a must read. [Scoop]

    Of course Pete Doherty’s mom is writing a book. She knows he might pop off any minute and leave her destitute so she better make some moolah off him fast. She’d use her time more constructively trying to get his ass some help. Truthfully though, I think Pete may be beyond help. He doesn’t want it. I think he’s kind of hoping for Sid Vicious immortality. He actually is sort of talented, it’s too bad he’s wasting it so appallingly.

    I agree that the Paris Hilton’s stolen gift thing seems a bit odd. The package was said to be worth $10,000 and contain shoes, handbags, perfume, sunglasses and who knows what else. If you consider the size the box had to be to have all this in it, its a good size. The person running with it would have some problems, maybe not for the weight aspect but the bulkiness of the box. Also, as this was supposedly a delivery person from Dior, so I’m sure they had a police report filed and Dior could easily replace the merchandise and file an insurance claim. It’s not like Paris is out of anything.

    The book’s title: “How My Son Turned Into A Smacked-Out Train Wreck Who Still Somehow Dates Kate Moss.”

    And I guess Paris’s latest bid for attention was a washout, since it doesn’t involve nudity.

    Well, Julia, there’s a simple reason you didn’t win a Tony. Please return to the movies, where your average acting can be hailed as genius…
