Fans of Hollywood and media -- and where the two intersect -- will find this item about Kim Cattrall on Page Six today absolutely fascinating. A reporter from the famed gossip column caught up with the leggy blonde after the premiere of her new film, "Meet Monica Velour," in which she plays an '80s porn star who now strips to make ends meet. (It's kind of a "Sex and the Trailer Park.") Apparently Cattrall was ranting about the discrimination women of a certain age face in Hollywood -- sort of an odd point for a 54-year-old to be making at the premiere of HER film -- then got even crankier when she realized she speaking to The New York Post.
When we tried to break the ice with Cattrall, mentioning a ridiculous tip we'd gotten earlier in the day about her getting a bikini wax -- a well-tackled subject on "SATC" -- she snapped, "That's a stupid question. You're a smart girl. How could you want to write that?" She then turned her anger on gossip columns, specifically Page Six, despite our being big fans of hers. "It'll chew you up and spit you out," she said, leaning in and adding that being a gossip reporter just isn't a "respectable job." Cattrall asked, "Why don't you work at -- what's that news agency -- Roybers?" When we corrected her, "Reuters," she conceded, "Yeah, sorry, I've been drinking." But she didn't stop there, ranting, "What about writing for a blog? Then you can write about what you want [or] care about."
I found her last comment to be the most interesting, probably because the question I get asked most often by readers I meet is whether or not I have another job. When I see yes, nine times out of 10 they seemed positively stunned -- which makes me smile because it seems preposterous (to me, at least) for someone to think that I could make a living off of "my life" -- let's face it, I'm no Kendra -- yet it implies that I put enough work into my site that it seems like a full-time career. (Thanks!)
To answer Cattrall's question for whichever smart "girl" from Page Six got asked it: We would (just) write for a blog, if we could make enough money off of it!
"Meet Monica Velour" opens April 8 -- and I cannot wait to see it!

Today, I give you the third and final installment of Christopher Carozzo's book report on Meredith Baxter's memoir, "Untied." The actress finally gets around to having sex with women, yet still doesn't think it makes her gay.
Miss Baxter's first "lesbian revelation" comes when she discusses her conscious choice to dress like a MAN during her custody battle with Birney. She claims the depositions were so "threatening" that she had to butch it up. She wore wing-tip oxfords, blazers, and cut her hair very short. Meredith thinks she should "probe" this issue more as it could be seen as a "foreshadowing" of her eventual coming out. Girl, PLEASE!!! Your choice of attire rarely has any indication on your sexual orientation. Just ask Tyler Perry!! He spends most of his days in a dress and he's COMPLETELY straight.
After butching it up for the court, the perfect "butch woman done wrong" movie of the week made its way to her. "A Woman Scorned, The Betty Broderick Story" was filmed in 1991. Mare LOVED Betty. She could relate to her because Betty was privileged and was treated very badly by her ex-husband. Of course Broderick KILLED her ex and his new wife. No worries, Meredith passes no judgment and completely understands how that could have happened. She found the role "therapeutic" and enjoyed pretending it was David's house that she drove a car through in one of the scenes!! She also enjoyed punching her co-star Stephen Collins. She states all this violence was "cathartic" for her and allowed her to get in touch with her anger towards David Birney. I hope for his sake, he has a restraining order against her. In fact, let's keep her out of the Walmart firearms section while we are at it!!

Yikes. Remind me to never become young and handsome and on the cover of INSTINCT magazine. Less than 24 hours after Eric Turner and John Odom's love story hit the Web, here's what commenters have to say. (Hint: All 13 are vicious, from allegations of lying and cheating to steroids and planned M2F surgery.) Don't feel bad, Eric, I had three testicles too!

When last we checked in with guest blogger Christopher Carozzo, he was knee-deep in Meredith Baxter's emotionally unbalanced memoir, "Untied," and the accidental lesbian's life was about to change with the role that put her on the map, "Bridget Loves Birney."
When we last left our girl Meredith Baxter, she was being pandered to various casting agents by her PIMP, I mean manager/stepfather Jack. Finally, her whoring around Hollywood paid off and she was cast in the CBS series "Bridget Loves Bernie." The "Bernie" in this series about a young Irish Catholic elementary schoolteacher (Baxter) who falls in love with a Jewish cab driver, was none other than Mr. David Birney. Meredith states that she was immediately attracted to the "extremely handsome, dark haired, intense, lithe, and graceful" 32-year-old actor.
