Saturday Fluffernutter: Indy Girls; Bobby Brown’s Dating; Carol Burnett and teh Bay City Rollers are Suing; Farewell Larry ‘Bud’ Melman.

All the Fluffy news about the worlds biggest nuts.

Bobby Brown is pitching a new reality TV series “Dating Bobby Brown“:

Bobby believes the best way to win a man’s heart is through his stomach, so he’s planning to have the women cook for him while they parade around in thong bikinis.

Classy guy. But, besides being the clown who ruined Whitney Huston’s career, who is he?

Carol Burnett is suing the maker’s of the TV show The Family Guy over an episode that spoofs her old Variety show. I never watch the Family Guy, but I’m going to have to dig that episode up: if it’s good enough to get sued over, then it’s good enough to watch. Thanks for the tip Ms. Burnett.

Ms. Burnett is not the only celebrity from my childhood feeling litigious this week. The Bay City Rollers are suing Arista Records over, what they claim, is millions of dollars in unpaid royalties over the past 25 years. If it’s true that “Arista’s claim over the last 25 years that it does not know who to pay” they should have no further worries: pay the guys on the other side of the courtroom.

You could see this one coming from a mile away. One of these guys (Derek Longmuir I think) has been working as a dentist the past 20 years. Good luck to the lads, if their statement is true then they deserve the money.

We need to add a new term to the popular culture lexicon:, “Indy Girl.” Like the Bond Girls, they are the female lead to play opposite Harrison Ford’s character in the Indiana Jones movies. Previous Indy Girls would be Karen Allen, Kate Capshaw, and Alison Doody. In the case of the upcoming look for Cate Blanchett. While this report says she’s rumoured, IMDB seems to have her confirmed.

Since we are comparing Indiana Jones and Bond, after this movie is it possible to replace Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones and continue the franchise?

Naomi Campbell has begun community service, cleaning at a NYC Department of Sanitation garage, for throwing her cellphone at a maid.

There, let that be a lesson to you.

It appears that Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher is about to become a movie:

London-based producer and distributor Pathe Productions said Tuesday it had commissioned a film about former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, set during the 1982 Falkland Islands war with Argentina.

What’s the bets that, regardless of how good, the actress who plays Thatcher is not even nominated for an Oscar?

Vanessa Williams has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. You have to wonder When Dom Ameche or Marlon Brando or Bogie got their star in the walk, did they really believe they would be keeping such illustrious company as Vanessa Williams?

Deeply saddened to hear to hear of the death of Calvert DeForest, the actor behind Larry ‘Bud’ Melman from the Letterman show for years. One of the most memorable bit actors pop culture has ever produced.

Melamn/DeForest was 85, and passed after a long, unidentified illness.

Below is a clip of Larry ‘Bud’ Melman handing out towels at the NYC Bus Station:
