Vanessa Minillo, Nick Lachey’s latest ho, has made a groundbreaking discovery for “Entertainment Tonight.” It seems that if you take a gorgeous woman and put her in a fat suit, apply pimples and frizzy hair … wait for it … men will not find her as attractive and might (gasp!) make fun of her appearance. I know, it’s shocking. But it’s all part of ET’s “Ugly Vanessa” spots, a send up of ABC’s “Ugly Betty.” What is with models like Tyra Banks and useless hosts like Vanessa dressing up as fat or homeless people and being shocked when men don’t fall at their feet anymore? Tomorrow they make Vanessa a (Jessica-esque) blonde and I’m going to go out on a limb and say that she’s treated a bit better.

I (Heart) Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell was on Letterman the night Britney made her appearance promoting his new movie "Stranger Than Fiction." Taking a swipe at the recent celeb Broadway appearances, Will pretended to be the next phantom and performed "Music of the Night" in his own special way.
Britney, K-Fed Cup Runneth Over
By PopCultureWhore

In case you hadn’t heard, K-Fed and Britney are dunzo. People magazine has been covering it as intensely as CNN on a hostage situation. Their latest “scoop” is that K-Fed is seeking custody of their two children. They also posted a pre-split interview in which he said Britney is “the spice” and he is “kinda like the sweet in it.” Touching. He also seems to know why we hate him. "The world doesn't want [me] for Britney Spears. That's their queen," he tells Salon. No shit.

If you just can't get enough, House of Blues is giving away tickets for K-Fed's show tonight. He might need the cash. His album came in at number 151 on the Billboard charts, selling only about 6,500 copies.

Britney, meanwhile, is not crying into her soup. She picked the very public Rockefeller Center to ice skate with her former manager Larry Rudolph … someone who perhaps convinced her that K-Fed and baby making were not the way to stay on top? Girlfriend's looking good ... giving Cameron and her racy W layout a run for her money?

Are NYT Readers Hungry?
By PopCultureWhore

The NYT lists its most popular articles every day, but while people were shunning K-Fed and the GOP this week, they apparently are not shunning the carbs. Never mind Rumsfeld, we want to know the secret of great bread, how to make no-knead bread and what's up with Brooklyn style pizza. Mmm, pizza.
He Won't Need a Costume

Michael Jackson will perform "Thriller" at the World Music Awards next week. The good news is that he won't need that much makeup seeing as how he already resembles the walking dead.

Is It Christmas?
By PopCultureWhore

My horoscope said November would be a glorious month, but I didn’t realize just how monumental until today. Not only is Britney ditching K-Fed, but the Democrats have managed to get their heads out of their asses to win the House (and possibly Senate) AND Donald Rumsfeld is resigning as Defense Secretary. I know this isn’t really pop culture, but I’m sure he was in cahoots with K-Fed or Bobby Brown or something. The U.S. has finally woken up for a collective “Hell to the naw!”
