In his new memoir “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing”, Matthew Perry writes that he once kissed Valerie Bertinelli while Eddie Van Halen was passed out drunk. “I fell madly in love with Valerie Bertinelli, who was clearly in a troubled marriage. My crush was crushing; not only was she way out of my league, but she was also married to one of the most famous rock stars on the planet, Eddie Van Halen. It is important to point out here that my feelings for Valerie were real. I was completely captivated — I mean, I was obsessed with her and harbored elaborate fantasies about her leaving Eddie Van Halen and living out the rest of her days with me. Things finally came to a head one night . . . I was over at Valerie and Eddie’s house, just hanging out and gazing at Valerie, trying to make her laugh. When you made her laugh, you felt ten feet tall. As the night progressed, it was clear that Eddie had enjoyed the fruits of the vine a little too hard, one more time, and eventually he just passed out, not ten feet away from us, but still. This was my chance! If you think I didn’t actually have a chance in hell you’d be wrong, dear reader — Valerie and I had a long, elaborate make-out session. It was happening — maybe she felt the same way I did. I told her I had thought about doing that for a long time, and she had said it right back to me.”
** UPDATE **

Heat magazine says Ben Affleck's friends are allegedly worried that Jennifer Lopez is turning him into a robot. A source tells the magazine, “Everyone, including Ben knew what marrying Jennifer would entail, but it’s hard to believe he is 100 percent happy when he’s so visibly awkward and lost-looking. It’s almost as if he’s turned into J-Lo’s puppet, just like all the other guys before him, and there’s a strong sense that he’s accepted this is his path, at least for now. The likes of Matt Damon and his brother Casey have been skating their heads and hoping he snaps out of it. The poor guy looks like he’s about to burst into tears at any time. Ben’s not raised any complaints to Jen, probably because he knows if he started asking for space, it would go down very well. Jen very much wears the pants. She tells him how to dress, eat, work out – how to live his whole life. This is a whole new version of Ben, and it’s kind of sad to see. He’s turning into J-Lo’s personal robot.” time – and so they come as a package deal.”

The bottom line is that she was a co-creator and founder of Plan B, and while it was technically passed onto Brad, she hasn’t had anything like the credit she deserved for building it up at inception – plus acting as a de facto consultant for many years when Brad needed to bounce ideas for projects or make big investments or business decisions.”

I am going to have two bowls of candy on Halloween. One bowl will be filled with Fun Size candy bars while the other will be filled with regular size. I plan to give the Fun Size bars to overweight children and the regular size bars to normal size kids. My neighbor says I'm offensive for doing such a thing. I disagree and think I'm doing the chunky kids a favor by cutting their calories. What do you think of my idea?
