Creep Alert, Remembering Tribbles and Clay's Gonna Be A?

I've never been much of a Bill Murray fan, even back "in the day"....and I was a huge, huge fan of the first decade of Saturday Night Live. Bill Murray and Chevy Chase made my skin crawl and I never could put my finger on it. There seemed to be an undercurrent of nasty, angry condescension in both of them and it actually prevented me from finding most of what they did either on SNL or in the movies funny. Well reading this just reinforces my impression of Mr. Murray.

He's A Real Keeper...not

The wife of entertainer Bill Murray has filed for divorce after nearly 11 years of marriage, alleging he abused her and is addicted to marijuana and alcohol.

Jennifer Butler Murray filed divorce papers May 12 in Charleston County. She owns a home on Sullivans Island, S.C., where she lives with the couple's four children.

The complaint was first reported by The Post and Courier of Charleston. It also alleges frequent abandonment by the former "Saturday Night Live" star.

Bill Murray's attorney, John McDougall, wouldn't comment on the allegations, but said the entertainer "is deeply saddened by the breakup of his marriage."

"He and his wife made loving parents and they are committed to the best interests of their children," McDougall said.

Jennifer Murray's attorney, Robert Rosen, said he had no comment.

The couple signed a prenuptial agreement, which was filed as an exhibit with the divorce papers, before they married in 1997. As part of the agreement, both waived their right to alimony or support if the marriage broke up. However, Murray agreed to pay $7 million to his ex-wife within 60 days of a final divorce decree.

he complaint, which doesn't specify instances of Murray's alleged marijuana or alcohol use, alleges he would often leave without telling his wife and says he "travels overseas where he engages in public and private altercations and sexual liaisons."

It also alleges Murray physically abused his wife and last November "hit her in the face and then told her she was `lucky he didn't kill her."'

The documents obtained by The Post and Courier were sealed by the court last week.

Murray, the star of movies such as "Ghostbusters," "Caddyshack" and "Groundhog Day," is a co-owner of the Charleston RiverDogs minor league baseball team.

The 57-year-old actor earned an Oscar nomination for his role in "Lost in Translation."

This just stuck out like a big ole' flag: "Bill Murray's attorney, John McDougall, wouldn't comment on the allegations, but said the entertainer "is deeply saddened by the breakup of his marriage."

"He and his wife made loving parents and they are committed to the best interests of their children," McDougall said."

Note that Bill isn't denying being a complete POS but does say he is committed to the best interests of their children. Right. Beating their mother, whoring around overseas, getting into fights (besides with his wife), boozing and smoking mota is OBVIOUSLY in the best interests of the kids, hell I bet Dr. Spock has several chapters in his child care books covering these best child rearing practices.

I am sure it is not legal but I wish that a judge would set aside the prenup. Ker-rap on a stick, if harpies like Heather Mills and Denise Richards raked in the big bucks for a few years of doing the horizontal mambo, this poor woman should get billions for putting up with eleven years of hell.

Tribble's Director Dies

I am a trekkie (not a trekker)... I admit it with complete nerd pride. Not just any kind of trekkie but an Original Series Trekkie (ST:TOS) I watched it the first time the episodes appeared on TV, I watched it on countless reruns, watched it on Beta, watched in on VHS and I watch it on DVD. I know every dang episode by heart, and one of my favorites was "Trouble with Tribbles"

Joseph Pevney, who directed some of the best-loved episodes of the original "Star Trek" television series, has died. He was 96.

Pevney died May 18 at his home in Palm Desert, said his wife, Margo.

Pevney directed 14 episodes of the 1960s series, including "The City on the Edge of Forever," in which Capt. Kirk and Spock travel back in time to the Depression, and "The Trouble With Tribbles," in which the starship Enterprise is infested with cute, furry creatures.

Pevney loved the series, said his son, Jay.

"He was surprised at the longevity of it because it was not a popular series at the time; it hit its real popularity (in syndication) after it was over," he said.

Pevney directed with precision and was highly organized "but he was very relaxed -- in fact, jovial -- in the way he directed," said George Takei, who played Sulu. "I enjoyed working with him."

Pevney had made his movie debut playing a killer in 1946's "Nocturne." As an actor, he made several other film noir appearances but then turned to directing with 1950's "Shakedown."

Pevney went on to direct more than 35 films, including two memorable movies from 1957: "Man of a Thousand Faces," which starred James Cagney as silent star Lon Chaney, and "Tammy and the Bachelor," a romantic comedy starring Debbie Reynolds that spawned her No. 1 hit record, "Tammy."

In the 1960s and '70s Pevney turned to television, directing dozens of episodes of series such as "Wagon Train," "Fantasy Island," "The Incredible Hulk" and "Trapper John, M.D."

He retired in 1985.

The Turkey Baster will be the Godfather...

This morning one of the news story headlines was: "Aiken to be a daddy" and I actually said out loud to myself "Hahaha ... someone misspelled Troy Aikman's last name"

And then I saw the picture....

Unfortunately the next image that popped into my head was Clay choking ...

So the second thing out of my lips (after cleaning up the projectile vomit) was:

Well actually there was the word "f'n" in the middle of the sentence.

But then I read the article:

NEW YORK — Clay Aiken is reportedly going to be a father.

The mother is Aiken's 40-something best friend Jaymes Foster — a record producer whose L.A. home he stays at when he is in town, reported.

Due in late August, Foster divorced a few years back and does not have kids, the Web site reported. She has produced several of the 29-year-old "American Idol" star's CDs.

Foster was artificially inseminated, but Clay will reportedly play an active role in raising the child, according to

Um, OK. He is going the "King of Pop" route...except he is admitting it...and he is using his own sperm... but on the other hand both of them...
