Phyllis Diller passed away at the age of 95, trailblazing a way for female comedians after her time. When Jerry Lewis and Adam Corolla say that female comedians are not funny, Phyllis Diller shows them just how truly stupid they are.
Phyllis mad herself the butt of jokes from her looks to the outrageous costumes she wore on stage and for interviews.
She did not start being a comedian until in her late 30's which was back in the 1950's. Bob Hope to a liking to her comedic style and featured her whenever he could.
You look at female comedians now like Ellen DeGeneres, Whoopi Goldberg and Amy Shumer, and the comedy is not focused on their looks. Ellen is pure comedy gold and she knows without Diller or Joan Rivers, she would not be where she is today.
Rivers is upset that not most know who Diller is. I do, but that is because of my Grandparents letting me know at an early age, and her voice was unmistakable in cartoons I watched as a kid when she would be a guest star in "Scooby Doo" and others.
She truly was the Queen of one-liners and her set-up and delivery was smooth and quite fast.
Phyllis Diller will not be forgotten, by her peers, by her fans, by anyone. I know this has been used before, but when it comes to her, it is completely true. Right now, she is making God laugh.
Thank you Phyllis for a childhood that wouldn't have been as funny without you.-DocFB
Prince dropped in on the ladies of the television show "The View" this morning. As he entered the stage, he presented each with a pair of tickets to his upcoming December 18 concert at NYC's Madison Square Garden. Lucky ladies - it's sold out!
View host Sherri Shepherd looked like she was about to faint when Prince's chair was placed beside hers. She asked Prince to say into the mic "Sherri I love you" (he obliged) and then like a crazed fan, asked if she could keep his gloves (he again obliged). But when she told Prince she has always wanted to sleep with him, he made a quick, humorous exit.
Prince's string of concerts in NY start next week with shows at the IZOD Center in New Jersey on December 15 and 17th (tickets still available!), and Madison Square Garden on the 18th (sold out). He also recently announced an additional show at MSG on January 18th - tickets go on presale today (password: tribute) or tomorrow to the general public. You don't want to miss this!
Where else will Prince pop up in NYC while he's there? We can't wait to find out. - Dr.FB
Crazy loves crazy. Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva are both crazy.
For 30 years, Mel Gibson was married to his wife Robin with no drama. He gets caught cheating with Oksana, a drunken mess happens in Malibu. A month later, Robin files for divorce. Mel still messes with the hot crazy fan Oksana for a couple of years and gets her pregnant.
The money train is supposed to roll in for Oksana. She tries to launch a music career funded by Mel n it just doesn't work. She dresses hot in public and it infuriates Mel that he is turned on so he goes off on her over the phone while the entire conversation was recorded. He drops the "N" word and you can hear Danny Glover muttering "I'm too old for this shhh."
Whoopi Golberg jumps to Mel's defense that he is not a racist. It looks like she wants to say they were lovers at one time, but she never does.
If that conversation wasn't real, we would be laughing that Mel is just channeling Max Max and his Lethal Weapon character. But it's no laughing manner. All the cards are in Oksana's corner. Until she doesn't hold and lays another card down; that Mel hit her in the mouth while she was holding their baby. Her front teeth were knocked out.
Her dentist and others claim the wounds to her mouth were caused by self-inflicted shots to the mouth. Girl is crazy. She denies it but who are you gonna believe; the hot foriegn chick or the dentist. Money is on the dentist.
Next comes reports that Mel is dropped by his PR firm. It seems that Mel is done with Hollywood as well and wants to go back to his homeland of Australia. Mel's reps deny the story.
This story is not going anywhere and neither is Mel. Oksana is trying to get full custody of their child but since those tapes won't be allowed in the courtroom and is only in the court of public opinion, and with Oksana's dentist saying she hit herself in the mouth, the odds of her getting full custody are not good.
Let this be a leason. Crazy loves crazy. But sometimes being driven crazy or insane by another, no matter how attractive they are, could lead to your downfall in a very bad way.-Dr.FB

Tori Spelling talked about her strained relationship with Candi Spelling on "The View". The girls were right when they said time is short and this feud is straight riduculous.
Must be nice to promote the book and then just talk about your mom. Lots of patience right there but this drama so needs to end.
Tori says Candi needs to reach out but Candi says she has been trying.
Who is telling the truth?-Dr.FB
It's great and all, but how sincere do you think she is? After all these months, it's hard. Barack's speech was powerful, so only time will tell.-Dr.FB
