  • Jenny on the DL: The NY Times has a good piece on Jennifer Capriati, who has missed the last 18 months on the tennis circuit because of a shoulder injury (others at the Saddlebrook Resort where she lives and trains think the injury is a little higher on the body). "Basically, I'm retired until I can play," Capriati said. "That's the easiest way to put it." (NYT)

  • Loose Lips Sink Ships: Jurors in the trial of Jeff Skilling and Ken Lay say the former Enron bigshots would have been better off keeping their mouths shut and off the witness stand. I'm just glad they were found guilty: if I had listen to Michael fly off the handle about the idea of these two walking away free I would have been dealing with a 2nd-degree murder rap of my own. (WP)

  • Ruffled Peacock Feathers: Just how desperate is NBC? (AP)

  • Double-Snap: Gay exec among those brought down at Enron / Gee, that's so not like a queen to stab you in the back. (Advocate)

  • Chimps Gone Wild: And now 25 years later we're still paying for it. (AP)

  • All that Glitters: "Good Times" alum Janet Jackson says her pursuit of a movie role was the reason she ballooned to 180 last year(!) . Even more unbelievable is that Miss Jackson wants us to believe that she ended up losing her role (in what? "Poetic Justice 2"?) to the thespian Mariah "Glitter" Carey. (MSNBC)

  • Damn you, Little Debbie! First you make me fat, and then you get me busted? (AP)

  • Baby's First Binge and Purge: Known anorexic Mary-Kate Olsen and her suspiciously thin twin sister, Ashley, are creating a show about health and nutrition for young children, according to media reports. An insider says this about the project: "Some execs are weirded out to do a show about food and nutrition with the Olsens." (WEN)

    As for as Janet Jackson (J. Jack) goes, it seems as if money can also help you lose weight...and fast too. She must be on the Oprah plan ;)
