Saturday Fluffernutter: Jennifer Aniston in nothing but a tie; Cherie Currie in bustier; Bettie Page (1923 – 2008)

December 13th, 2008
Saturday Fluffernutter – all the fluffy news about those nutty celebrities.

I spent the better part of a week in the summer of 1977 in the back seat of a white Thunderbird with black vinyl roof going to Florida and back. For entertainment I had dad’s really lousy radio stations, and a Cream magazine. I read and re-read Lisa Robinson’s account of Led Zeppelin’s 1977 tour, a review on Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers upcoming debut album, and a story on a hot new girl band, The Runaways. Joan Jett at 16 (remember, I was 14), Lita Ford, and the gorgeous Cherie Currie fronting the band in bustier and stockings. That was a long drive.

Now comes word that those Runaway days will be immortalized on celluloid with a 2009 movie adaptation of the bands success. Twilight star Kristen Stewart is slated to play Joan Jett, who is listed as an executive producer.

Jay Leno has agreed to do a show at 10:00 every weeknight after he stops hosting the Late Show next spring. This means NBC is out of the one-hour drama game, and into the sucking up to Jay game. It was announced previously that Conan O’Brien would replace Leno in the spring. Leno had previously announced his retirement, but has since decided that he would rather stick around. There were rumours that he was going to do a show for rival ABC. We’ll let Leno tell the rest:

Those were rumours started by a disgruntled employee – me.

Like I said, NBC is now officially in the sucking up to Jay game.

Jennifer Aniston, 40 and looking great, has appeared on the cover of this months GQ magazine wearing nothing but a tie. Let me repeat for the men: Nothing-But-A-Tie.

New Rule on the Britney Spears tour if your a back-up dancer – mandatory drug tests. That’s right, the constitutional right to drug test employees, which was once a point of debate for fire fighters, large equipment operators and others on whose job performance the lives of others depended, is now being applied to dancer: Britney Spears.

Because if a dancer falls doing a spin-a-rama, look out!

Bettie Page (1923 – 2008). Betty Page was an original it girl, a 1950’s sex bomb, pin up of the kind Jennifer Aniston aspires to be. She passed this week at the age of 85. For a true memorial from a real fan, my old friend Wonder Woman did a fabulous tribute. And the Bettie Page Memorial Site is a treasure trove for those who are interested.

Britney, Fluffernutter
