Sex & the City is so empowering. Apparently both Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis rushed out and got plastic surgery after the SATC movie came out. Thank god we don’t look to TV stars as role models or we’d be booking in for surgery right now. — I don’t like you in that way

Joan Rivers disses our Russ. Joan Rivers was yanked off American TV for describing Russell Crowe as fucking shit. Screw the yanks, Joan, the nation of Australia is right there with you. Defamer asks if it was not a tad unfair to yank Joan off air for swearing on a show called Loose Women. We concur. — Defamer

Vulture’s open letter to Katherine Heigl.So you’ve acted out once again (no pun intended!). You’ve withdrawn your name from Emmy eligibility, because, in your words, ”I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination… Do you think you’re above the work that you do? You’re no Streep, honey, and even she does Abba with a smile.” Ouch! — NY Mag

Britney Spears may be an auntie. Her 17-year-old sister Jamie Lynn should be delivering a baby super soon. Jezebel kindly wraps up all the Britney-sis gossip – like it might be a C-section birth! We can’t express how grateful we are that more Spears sprogs are about to be loosed on the earth. — Jezebel

Charlie Sheen apologises for being a shit. Although the N-bomb, multiple F-words and one of the nastier misogynist terms Sheen used in two voicemails left for ex-wife Denise Richards in April 2005 were fully documented as part of their divorce proceedings, recently revealed audio recordings of the messages prompted the sitcom star to apologize for blowing his top in such a vile manner. — E-online
