Celebrities: September 2007 Archives
Porn star Jenna Jameson told PR.com that she likes Hillary Clinton for president, even though Hillary's "pretty conservative for a Democrat."
Given all the hoopla about Barry Manilow's catfight with Elisabeth Hasselbeck and all the excitement over Alicia Silverstone's nude PETA commercial, we might as well re-vist another catfight classic: Alicia Silverstone v. Elisabeth Hasselbeck. In this clip, Alicia Silverstone walks on The View stage (moments after the infamous Elisabeth v. Rosie fight) and totally disses Elisabeth. Seems a lot of Hollywood celebrities have issues with Elisabeth's conservative political views (though we think there has to be more to it than that... like maybe she's not-so-nice off camera or something like that).
Enjoy the clip. Meow.
Alicia Silverstone, who is a vegan and best known for her role the film Clueless, filmed this PETA commercial totally in the buff. It will air only in Houston, TX. It's hot and steamy, so don't let any kiddies near your computer see it.

In the latest issue of Time (September 24, 2007), 50 Cent reaffirms his support of Hillary.
Q: Are you endorsing a particular candidate in the '08 election?
A: No, but I like Hillary. I think she was already our president once. [Laughs.]
Singer Barry Manilow cancelled his scheduled appearance on The View Tuesday, because he doesn't like Elisabeth Hasselbeck , who is known for her conservative political views. He told CelebTV.com, "...I will no longer be on The View tomorrow as scheduled. I made a request that I be interviewed by Joy, Barbara or Whoopi, but not Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Unfortunately, the show was not willing to acommodate this simple request, and I bowed out. It's really too bad, because I have always been a big supporter of The View, but I cannot compromise my beliefs." He told TMZ.com, "I strongly disagree with her views. I think she is dangerous and offensive. I will not be on the same stage as her."
Is he for real? We like Barry, after all, he does write the songs that make us polichicks sing, but this is so
third grade first grade.
Watch the pettiness below. Meow.

Gabriel and I are beyond excited, and I've waited a long time for this moment in life. Now the next seven months will be the longest of my life!"
President Bill Clinton will be on Oprah today at 4 EST to share his new passion: giving.
The most phenomenal of phenomenal women, Dr. Maya Angelou, poetically endorses Hillary Clinton here.
Hillary Clinton just scored an endorsement from rapper 50 Cent (ne Curtis James Jackson). "I'd like to see Hillary Clinton be president," MTV News reports 50 told Rap-Up Magazine. "It would be nice to see a woman be the actual president and ... this is a way for us to have Bill Clinton be president again, and he did a great job during his term."
50, who shares a birthday with George W. Bush, also revealed his opinion of the president. "[Bush] has less compassion than a regular human being," he said. Seems Fiddy also thinks G-Dub is a punk. "Me and George Bush are so different. ... I actually go to war, when I go to war. Bush just sends [people] to war."
George Clooney is the hottest political commentator we know! Read his "analysis" of the Demoratic primary below.

But with more than a year until the election, Clooney also said he liked Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and former Sen. John Edwards -- and pondered whether former Vice President Al Gore might vie for the presidency again.
"It could be interesting," he said.
The politics of war was in the air at
Clooney -- who said he made "Syriana" and "Good Night, and Good Luck," out of anger that he was labeled a traitor for questioning the decision to go to war -- told reporters he thinks change is coming.
He said he believes Americans are now in the process of fixing the mistakes of the last few years.
Fixing things, "that's what Americans have been really good at," he said.
