Afternoon Headlights (12/21)

  • Baby Steps: The trailers (and reviews) for "P.S. I Love You" are absolutely atrocious, but it is pretty cool that a trangender actress is the lead in a big-budget studio film. Calpernia Addams has never looked more gorgeous -- and ditto for Gerard Butler! (ST)

  • Lost in Translation: Channel 3 in Philadelphia has offered an olive branch to gays over anchorwoman Alycia Lane's "dyke bitch" comment. What she meant was "Lesbian meanie!" (Philly)

  • Daily Grind: Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will return to the airwaves early next year, with or without their writers. As I miss their shows I have to admit that I was enjoying having fewer television "responsibilities" each night, but I"m glad. (LAT)

  • RIP: Borat is dead. Sacha Baron Cohen tells The Daily Telegraph that he's retiring the clueless Kazakh journalist, as well as his alter ego, aspiring rapper Ali G. They will both be missed. (AP)

  • Shotgun 101: I'm guessing Britney's marriage to Jason Alexander will last longer than this one. (NYP)

  • GayPal: This helps to explain why PayPal looks all pretty but is really rather conniving and just trying to hose you every time you have an encounter with it. (ValleyWag)

  • Tiger Tales: Funny how the gay go-go boy, Carson Kressley "Tiger," originally linked to the mysterious Palm Beach drowning of hedge fund manager Seth Tobias has gone from saying he never met the guy to recalling elaborate sexual exploits and lavish vacations togeter. Cats are known for their keen sense of the smell and this kitty smells cash. (Rush&Molloy)

  • Golden Boy: Tom Brady was selected as The Associated Press' Male Athlete of the Year. (AP)

  • Yarn Festival: You have to see the weaves of "Clash of the Choirs" to believe them! (AP)

    Calpernia Addams (yes, two d's--for shame, Mr. "Editor") isn't in 'P.S. I Love You," Ken. It's Hilary Swank. By the way, I love your blog. I hope there are plenty of eggs in your nog this season! :)

    I saw the trailer and thought "Cool, Gerard Butler in a gay love story!"

    Calpernia is way too pretty and fem to confuse with the Swank.
