Friday's Fresh Frappé and Fritters

OMG...someone, anyone, PLEASE grab Robin Wright, give her a couple of shakes and a hard slap across the face while shouting "Snap out of it!" or perhaps buy her a clue?

Robin, sweetheart, baby... you are not Princess Buttercup and Sean Penn is not Wesley....hell, he aint even Spicoli....if one tenth of the stories told about his whoring, drinking and abusiveness have merit, then WTF?

Buttercup: You can die too for all I care.
[pushes him down a high hill]
Westley: AS... YOU... WISH.
Buttercup: Oh my sweet Westley what have I done?
[throws herself down the hill]

This is a real head scratcher.....

Here's something you don't see every day. A celebrity couple deciding against divorce. Oscar-winning hothead and political activist Sean Penn and his wife, actress Robin Wright Penn, have withdrawn the divorce petition they filed in December.

This after Penn made the rounds at post-Oscar bashes with Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Petra Nemcova, who is most famous for surviving the 2004 Thailand tsunami by clinging to the top of a palm tree. They were spotted canoodling at Elton John's AIDS fundraiser together and posed on the red carpet for photos. Nemcova (incidentally?) bears a not dissimilar resemblance to Wright Penn in her Buttercup ("The Princess Bride") days.

No word yet on what happened to end that fling, but one can speculate, perhaps, that Penn expects a certain level of intellectual discourse in his relationships. Not that models can't also be Mensa members! Or maybe it came out that Nemcova is a Republican.

The divorce proceedings had some zigs and zags. Sean originally filed divorce papers in Marin County December 7. That the petition was dismissed December 18. Wright Penn followed up with the papers on the 21st. That's the case that was dismissed this week. It came a day after they attended an Eddie Vedder concert at the University of California, Berkeley, where Penn reportedly went on stage to dedicate a song to his wife for her birthday.

They have two children; daughter Dylan Frances, 17, and son Hopper Jack, 14

She must be a real forgivin' and forgettin' kind of gal:

Sean Penn’s marriage of 11 years reportedly came to an end after wife Robin Wright Penn found in him with two other women. Robin filed for divorce late last month citing the standard “irreconcilable differences” but refused to give any further details about what was behind the split. Now Star magazine is reporting that Sean was unfaithful during a weekend away.

A source told the publication that the pair were staying at the Squaw Valley resort in Lake Tahoe, California but were not staying together: “Sean didn’t spend much time with his wife - he booked her a separate suite - and when Robin got fed up with being alone, she went over to his suite.”

When she got there, she “found him drunk with two Russian girls.”

Speaking of Fug Boys with Bad Tempers.....

WELLINGTON, Fla. - Vanilla Ice has been arrested in South Florida on a simple domestic battery charge.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says the 39-year-old rapper was arrested late Thursday night following an incident at his home in Wellington after an alleged argument with his wife. She called the police last night saying he had kicked and hit her, later she said he only pushed her. When police arrived at the couple's South Florida home she reportedly said: "He started yelling at me for going out to buy a bedroom set in front of my daughter."

He was being held without bond.

It wasn't known if he had an attorney. A message left with his agent wasn't immediately returned early Friday morning.The rapper, whose real name is Robert Van Winkle, spent a night in jail in 2001 after being arrested following a domestic dispute. He pleaded guilty to charges of disorderly conduct four months later, and was sentenced to probation and ordered to attend family therapy sessions.

He sold 15 million copies of the single "Ice Ice Baby" in 1990.

Hey, if you have never seen Jim Carey's "Ice, Ice Baby" from In Living Color, you have missed what I think is one of Jim's funniest bits:

Ferguson is coming on strong!

Divo jr is a big Conan fan, but I have become a Craig Ferguson fan. I will admit I had no idea he was on late night TV until one night as I was flipping through channels I saw MiMi's boss on my screen....Wow, Nigel Wick is on a talk show?.... no wait.... he is the host.... hmmm.... I wonder if he is any good?.....hmmm ..... pretty funny guy....

Evidently a growing number of night owls agree with the Diva:

Recently sworn-in U.S. citizen Craig Ferguson is being embraced by his new countrymen: The late-night comic hit a ratings milestone last week with his first victory over NBC's Conan O'Brien. The CBS "Late Late Show" averaged more viewers than O'Brien's "Late Night" (1.88 million to 1.77 million) for the first week during which they each competed with all-original shows since Ferguson started in January 2005.

It caps a slow and steady climb for Ferguson and raises a red flag for future "Tonight" show host O'Brien, although NBC says it is still happy with O'Brien's audience.

"He's getting looser and looser all the time and for the last few months it's clear that he's having such a good time that you can't resist it as a viewer," said veteran late-night hand Peter Lassally, Ferguson's executive producer.

Ferguson, a Scotsman, passed an American citizenship test and was formally sworn in on February 1. He'll be host of the annual White House correspondents' dinner in Washington later this month, a high-profile gig for a comic.

Here is the clip showing Craig taking his citizenship test:

Here is last night's monologue, he IS pretty funny!
