A Robin Williams Selfie Minted at SNL

A year and a half before that great Norm Maccdonald-Robin Williams backstage encounter at Late Night with David Letterman, there was another similar crossing-of-the-paths at Saturday Night Live. Documented by a wonderful selfie that has been shared anew this week to celebrate the warm-hearted spirit of the late Williams.

E!’s Love Ride Curse

justin_cameron_split.jpgThe reported Justin Timberlake-Cameron Diaz split — the first big one of 2007 — has celebrity media outlets in a tizzy. You know who else is in a tizzy? E! gossipist Michael Malkin, who appears to’ve been counting down the minutes since Britney dropped K-Fed to write this:

With Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock along with Britney Spears and Kevin Federline over, who’s left to worry about the curse? Brangelina, TomKat, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, and Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.

Three of eight, huh? That’s not exactly Madden Curse territory.
