Chelsea Handler Pal Natasha Leggero Defends Jolie Jokes!

7 December 2010 3:00 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Chelsea Handler 's pal, comedian Natasha Leggero , is standing behind the "Chelsea Lately" host following a series of controversial and derogatory jokes the E! TV personality made about Angelina Jolie during a comedy show last weekend in New Jersey. During the comedy show in Newark, N.J., Handler called Jolie a "home wrecker" and made inappropriate comments about her children with partner Brad Pitt . Handler came under fire for the comments, because it was perceived by some that her friendship with Pitt's ex-wife Jennifer Aniston , was fueling the jokes. But Leggero, a regular on the "Chelsea Lately" roundtable and the host of this Sunday's 7th Annual Hollywood Style Awards in L.A., tells TooFab, laughing, "I would never steal some woman's husband and then pose on the cover of [W] magazine with him, on their bed with all their babies. I think it's too much." Adds Leggero, "When she appeared on the cover [with Pitt], I remember it, »

Animation is still going strong at Fox. The network has ordered up eight more episodes of "American Dad" and six more of "Bob's Burgers." They're also looking at a few more animated pilots. [Fox]

How do you like Gwyneth Paltrow's country conversion so far? Well, she's going to make her live country music singing debut at the CMAs this year on Nov. 10. With this, her "Country Song" movie and "Glee," we're wondering if husband Chris Martin might consider switching to acting next. [ABC]

It has been a very sad week in Hollywood as several major cinematic luminaries have passed away.

On Sunday, 100-year-old veteran actress Gloria Stuart ("Titanic," "The Invisible Man") died at home after a five-year battle with lung cancer.

On Tuesday 56-year-old Sally Menke, the editor who cut all of Quentin Tarantino’s films, went missing while hiking and was found dead at the bottom of a ravine in Beachwood Canyon. The record-setting heat in L.A. this week is said to have played a part.

The comedy community is in shock following the death of comedian Greg Giraldo.  Giraldo, a Comedy Central regular, passed away Wednesday – just days after a reported prescription pill overdose.  Paramedics found the 44-year-old unconscious in his New Jersey hotel room Saturday.

Giraldo appeared on a number of shows including Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, Lewis Black’s Root of All Evil, and as a judge on NBC’s Last Comic Standing.  He might be best known for his biting rants on Comedy Central’s series of celebrity roasts.

Some of Giraldo’s fellow comedians expressed their sadness on Twitter…

Fellow comedian and Human Giant member Aziz Ansari wrote: “Very sad to hear the news about Greg Giraldo. One of the most respected comics I can think of. The world has lost a hysterical man. Rip.”

Tony Curtis, 85, died last night in Las Vegas

30 September 2010 4:37 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Three recent deaths rocked the entertainment industry, casting a shadow over the Hollywood community.

Tony Curtis, the Oscar nominee who once wooed Marilyn Monroe and impressed the Academy as one half of Stanley Kramer’s “The Defiant Ones,” died Wednesday night in his Las Vegas home. The coroner reports that Curtis, who had heart surgery in 1994, died of cardiac arrest. He was 85.

Earlier in the week, “Bonnie and Clyde” director Arthur Penn passed away in his Manhattan home. Penn, who had just turned 88, died of congestive heart failure. His career began in the theater, but he eventually moved on to film, helming such classics as “The Miracle Worker,” “Little Big Man,” and “Alice’s Restaurant.” He also directed a handful of excellent genre flicks with the great Gene Hackman.

Curtis and Penn lived long and productive lives. Comedian Greg Giraldo, however, cut his own life short. »
