Saturday Fluffernutter: Amy’s Divorce Letter; No Abba Cat Fight; Iron Chef vs. Potty Mouth Chef – may the best meatball win.

January 31st, 2009

Saturday Fluffernutter – all the fluffy news about those nutty celebrities.

fluffincolorThe Abba girls, Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, gave a rare interview this week in which they disputed long held claims of personal dislike for each other. melissa-glick-warhol-fluff-for-webThey claimed there is no truth to the rumours that they “fought and quarrelled with each other.”  Abba without the cat fights? Is there any other reason to care about Abba?


I have long had cutey Molly Ringwald on the “whatever happened to” file. It turns out, however, that she hasn’t been abducted by aliens or in fact been gone much at all. She is on the TV show The Secret Life of the American Teenager, and this week announced she is pregnant with twins. The twins will be Molly’s 2nd and 3rd children with husband Panio Gianopoulos.

The pregnancy will be written into the storyline of The Secret Life.

fluffincolorAmy Winehouse’s husband is looking to divorce her, and will reportedly use a love letter sent to him by Winehouse to prove that he was instrumental in her career and he’s entitled to half of her estimated $15 million. As for Winehouse, she has vowed that she will not let him divorce her.

Lets see, he’s a junkie, who just got out of jail, who will use a love letter you sent him to pry $7.5M out of you.  Really, why would any one want to divorce him?

fluffincolorHeather Mills approves of Paul McCartney’s new beau, Nancy Shevell, and says the ex-Beatle has great taste in women: not judging by his last wife, I’d say.

Meanwhile, the ex-Mrs. McCartney brags that she does better with the men than her stunning New York girlfriends. Why? “Maybe it’s because I’m comfortable with myself.”

Yea, that and the $45M she got out of McCartney.

fluffincolorThere’s nothing like a good celebrity spat: Gore Vidal and Norman Mailer; Elton John and George Michael; Paris and Nicole. Now the food is flying at Food Network HQ, as Gordon Ramsey and Mario Batali are apparently chucking the cream pastries across the restaurant at each other.

The New York Times reports that Batali has banned Ramsey from his restaurants. Ramsey says he’s not banned, but why would he eat there anyway? After all the food is embarassing.

Word of the wise for Mario Batali: your not in a spat with Gordon Ramsey until they have to bleep what he says about your food.

fluffincolorLast week I stated that the crying over Dark Knight not getting an Oscar nod was strange considering it was a terrible movie. The real crime of the Oscar nominations is that The Secret Life of Bees didn’t get an Oscar nod. It is a moving, compelling movie highlighting racism in the American South in the mid-1960’s. It is loaded with drama, although sadly lacking in any humour. It is a far better choice for best movie than Dark Knight. I haven’t seen any of the five nominated movies, but I would be willing to wager that all five are not better movies than Bees. So why the lack of nod for The Secret Life of Bees? And why the lack of protest from the critics?

fluffincolorBilly Powell (1952 – 2009).

The story goes that Billy Powell was roadying for Lynyrd Skynyrd. After setting up the band in an auditorium, Powell sat at a piano that was there and began to play the intro to Free Bird, which until that time the band had been playing on guitar.

As Powell always told the story, the band didn’t know he could play piano and their jaws dropped to the floor on hearing him. They then asked him if he wanted to join the band, and it was his jaw that fell to the floor.

RIP Billy Powell, who died of an apparent heart attack on Wednesday.

    I’m a little shocked by the news that brat-pack Molly Ringwald is working on her third child. I’m more shocked that she didn’t get knocked up by Anthony Michael Hall of Breakfast Club fame.

    You would have thought that if anyone would have three children at this stage in their lives, it would be Ally Sheedy.
