A Biggs Mistake

Finding humor in pain is one of the hallmarks of a truly great comedian. Mining tragedy for laughs is a delicate balance to strike when it's done well, brilliant comedy occurs. But there are a million mitigating factors that come into play; if any one of them is out of place, wellthen there's very little to laugh about.

Brawling in the Bu

In the world of celebrity missteps, there's often a fairly high degree of 'he said/she said.' Just like with the rest of us plebes, when things go sour and there are no impartial witnesses, it's difficult to know just what may have happened.

Krazy Katt

In the realm of celebrity missteps, things tend to go in one of three directions.

The strange saga of Shia

The lives of the rich and famous certainly have their perks. There's a lot about celebrity that appears pretty awesome when you're on the outside looking in. But there are also plenty of pressures that famous folks have to deal with pressures that those of us outside the spotlight will never really understand. These pressures feed off one another; if someone isn't equipped to deal with them, said pressures often expand to a breaking point, leading to a celebrity meltdown.

Mother of the Year

One of the tenets of a certain kind of celebrity is that any notice is good notice. Getting your name out there, expanding the brand that's the only concern. Why and how don't really enter into it. It's an unfortunate side effect of the current pop culture landscape far too many people who are famous for being famous and desperate to remain famous.

For instance, if you're one of the stars of a show like 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,' chances are good that you aren't overly concerned with what sort of attention you get so long as that spotlight keeps on shining your way. However, Brandi Glanville has opened up a can of worms with recent comments made regarding her young son.

It started with some comments she made on her podcast. She was talking about her child when she let drop the fact that she occasionally referred to the boy as an 'a--hole' and a 'd--k.' Furthermore, when the comments ignited a bit of furor, she took to Twitter to reinforce her attitude, saying that she jokes about her kids and dogs 'being a-holes cuz sometimes they can be.'

So there you go lots of self-esteem being nurtured in the Glanville home.

There's no doubt that there are a lot of trials and tribulations that come with parenthood. Children can put a strain on even the most patient of people. They're kids that's what they do. And there's nothing wrong with a parent occasionally venting some of his/her stress and frustration with the rigors of raising a child. Not at all. People need to blow off some steam.

But maybe not on a podcast?

Far be it from us to tell a Real Housewife how to properly expand the Brandi Glanville brand, but maybe telling the world that you call your 7-year-old an ahole isn't necessarily the best way to go about your business. And then to double down by confirming that yes, you do refer to your child with derogatory terminology? Too much.

This kid is going to have enough trouble growing up with a mom who is a noted reality television lunatic. The little guy has a wealth of emotional baggage already packed. Does he really need to have a lengthy record of his mom calling him a dk?

(Don't get us wrong it's quite possible that the kid really is a tremendous pain in the ass. No one is saying any differently. But maybe Glanville ought to rein it in a little bit. Share her concerns with a trusted friend or something you know, as opposed to the world at large.)

No one expects a spotlight-seeker of this magnitude to be Mother of the Year material, but there's plenty of grey area between June Cleaver andwhatever this is.

This week in Bieber

Whenever it's a slow week in the realm of celebrity irresponsibility, it's nice to know that there are certain entitled nozzles on which we can depend. You can search and search for entertaining material, but sometimes, you'll come up empty. When that happens, all you have to do is say:

'Ah well. What's Bieber up to?'

And this week, like so many weeks before, the Biebs has come up big for us.

His latest issue involves his new Beverly Hills condo. The singer just moved in last month, renting two units the penthouse and another unit on the floor below because he needed room for not just himself, but his entourage as well. As you might guess, it didn't take long for him to make enemies out of his neighbors.

Not only has he been throwing wild parties the cops have been called several times but at one point, he and his buddies apparently smoked so much pot that the smoke managed to permeate throughout the entire penthouse floor.

It's not like it's big news that Bieber is an inconsiderate degenerate, but at the same time, it's almost comforting to know that no matter how well or ill things might be going in his world, Justin Bieber isn't going to change. Swag forever and all that. Yes, you would think that at some point an effort would be made to get his crap together, but no. His devotion to debauchery is unquestioned.

He was, is and always shall be the Biebs.

Long-distance dedication

While this space is generally dedicated to mocking the trials and tribulations of the rich and famous, we sometimes use it to memorialize celebrities who have passed away, people who have impacted us in specific and memorable ways.

Bieber in the bathtub

We've spent a lot of time in this space taking Justin Bieber to task for the many many MANY unfortunate things that he has said and done over the years. And there's no doubt that he's an entitled snot who can't seem to get out of his own way long enough to behave like a human being for any length of time. This space is reserved for deriding and mocking the rich and famous for their misdeeds Bieber has certainly earned the attention that we have given him.

Bad day for Ray J

Apparently, Ray J has been struggling with the aftermath of the Kim Kardashian/Kanye West nuptials. We mentioned previously his mega-burn of a wedding gift four months of his profits from the sex tape that first brought Kim into the pop culture consciousness but his behavior at a Beverly Hills hotel over the weekend makes one wonder if there's not more to it.

What happens in Vegas

The thing about celebrity beefs is that they rarely escalate beyond words. They'll jaw back and forth for a while, each calling the other's various choices into question, and then gradually it'll just peter out. Even the ones that are long-running tend to lose some of their vitriol with the passage of time it's just human nature. As much as they might want to, it's hard to keep the flames of rage burning hot; they're either going to either settle into embers or go out entirely.

Clowning around

We have a lot of fun at the expense of the Kardashian family in this space; they make our job easier by constantly reminding us of how ridiculous and entitled and generally untalented they actually are. Despite or perhaps because of - their inability to contribute anything of meaning to society, the truth remains that they are among the most famous human beings in this country.
