Jim Mullen's Hot Sheet

What the country is talking about this week …

Posted on

1 Valentine’s Day Men think they’re being romantic if they bring home a dozen roses. Women think men are being romantic if they clean the tub.

2 Temptation Island Now we know what happened to the sex shops they chased out of Times Square. They’re on Fox.

3 Cinema 2.4 Some theater chains plan to shut down hundreds of screens. Putting 15 to 20 people out of work.

4 Jimmy Buffett The Parrothead-in-Chief got bumped from his courtside seat at an NBA game for swearing. Yeah, that really upsets the players.

5 Cruise-Kidman split It took Hollywood by surprise. Everyone thought Russell Crowe was out of town.

6 Hannibal The sequel to The Silence of the Lambs is supposed to be creepier than the original. He now says ”Bam!” when he cooks someone.

7 Westminster Dog Show The competition for Best in Show is fierce. If only there were something called the Westminster Human Show.

8 Oscar nominations Win or lose, it’s an honor just to have a multimillion-dollar ad campaign aimed at your voting peers.

9 XFL Going after that much-coveted ad demo — single men who can’t afford to leave the house on Saturday night.

10 ”Whasssup!” Voted 2000’s most-hated catchphrase. But, as usual, ballots from some Florida counties were thrown out.

11 Hef The Viagra-popping 74-year-old is living with seven women ages 19 to 28. If he dies, they may be charged with assisted suicide.

12 Leo DiCaprio In Italy, the star reportedly splattered paparazzi with manure. How long before we see that on eBay?

13 These Old Broads Shirley MacLaine, Debbie Reynolds, Joan Collins, and Elizabeth Taylor meet to plug a movie. Only they can’t remember which one.

14 Kelly Ripa The soap star landed the seat next to Regis. But, like Kathie Lee, she may soon weary of the 9-to-10 grind.

15 Anna Nicole Smith Her sixtysomething stepson is still fighting her in court for his father’s money. Maybe she shouldn’t have made him call her Mom.
