Ben Affleck near death! (or maybe that's just his career)

The story:
Jennifer Garner rushed Ben Affleck to the ER on Memorial Day as he was suffering from a migraine.

The combatants:
Lainey's Entertainment Update says: Ben's mysterious malady
Tabloid Whore says: Wow! Ben Affleck gets migraine and is "just like us"
A Socialite's Life says: Ben Affleck's emergency room confusion
Defamer says: Ben Affleck rushed to hospital, emerges merely a director
Hollywood Rag says: Ben Affleck's Memorial Day migraine

Who said it best:
Lainey's smutty senses are tingling on this one...:
Because now I'm wondering whether or not the first time director with an acting career on life support had a bit of an anxiety attack that he thought was a heart attack.
... and Defamer is also on the death watch:
Emergency room physicians in Cambridge were able to treat Ben Affleck's migraine attack yesterday, but despite their best efforts, were apparently unable to resuscitate his acting career.

Tabloid Whore says: Hallelujah! Angelina Jolie gives birth
A Socialite's Life says: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt give birth to the most beautiful baby in the world
Glitterati Gossip says: Maddox & Zahara get a sister
US Weekly Online says: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt welcome baby girl

The Gilded Moose says: Vatican renames Son of God 'Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt

Who said it best:
Despite the plethora of exclamation points this story subjects us to, there was certainly several good funnies to go along with it. Hats off to Popsugar for noting the domino effect this birth will have in the media:
expect Tom and Katie to prepare to get their baby Suri pics ready for their debut.
Will Shiloh and Suri be duking it out for People magazine cover status this week?

(Shake)Spears (not) in love?

The story:
Britney Spears posted a poem on her website that is either an f-u to her marriage or the stalkerazzi.

The combatants:
Celebrity Hijinx says: Remembrance of how crazy crazy is
The Scoop says: Is Britney putting marital woes into verse?
Mollygood says: Britney Spears: Modern day Shakespeare
City Rag says: Britney Spears mysterious message
A Socialite's Life says: Britney's pain
Defamer says: Britney Spears is trying to tell us something in verse
The Superficial says: Britney Spears writes poetry
Perez Hilton says: The bitch is back

Who said it best:
While fingers are crossed all over the web that this is the signal of the demise of Spears' marriage to the Federjerk, not everyone is convinced that he is the target of her ire. The Superficial sees another possible inspiration for the poem:
I guess I'd be pretty angry too if I was married to Joe Dirt and my plans to kill my baby were thwarted by that meddlesome paparazzi.

Celebrity Hijinx says: Tell it like it is Ms Jackson
Popsugar says: Janet's back in control
Dlisted says: The Photoshop Awards: Janet Jackson
Mollywood says: Hot Damn Janet Jackson

Who said it best:
There seems to be a fair amount of skepticism about possible touch ups to the cover photo, as well as Janet's diet "secrets". Haute Gossip gets right to the point:
Seriously. Do you think we're THAT stupid? Her upper body with the 5 pin bowling ball breasts is 100% Janet but from there down - come on.

A Socialite's Life says: It really is over
Best Week Ever says: Sizzler: Nicole and DJ AM split again
Tabloid Whore says: Yep. DJ AM and Nicole confirm split

Who said it best:
A Socialite's Life had the cleverest photo, Dlisted wins the headline war, but when it comes down to all over creativity, Defamer takes it:
It's difficult to say why these two potential soulmates keep parting ways--it can be something as simple as a disagreement over whether or not to raise the kids eaters

Charlie moves perviness online

The story:
Charlie Sheen has been meeting women online, dressing them up as young cheerleaders and them dumping them.

Image via Tabloid Whore
The combatants:
Perez Hilton says: Friday fuzzy feelings with Charlie Sheen
Defamer says: Charlie Sheen's "cheerleader" problems continue
I Don't Like You In That Way says: Charlie Sheen is still kinky
Dlisted says: What the hell is
Tabloid Whore says: Charlie still likes pigtails

Who said it best:
Defamer deconstructs the story behind the story:
Once again, the tabloid press has fallen for the clever tricks of the Charlie Sheen PR machine, which slyly seeks to reinforce the actor's alleged, All-American taste for the company of barely legal (legal being the operative word), spanky-panted pom-pom girls through the gossip column testimony of former enablers of his pigtail fetish.

Defamer says: Lohan-Hilton Catfight Update: Brandon Davis Uses Nuclear Option, Officially Upgrades Tiff To War
The Superficial says: Paris Hilton and Brandon Davis hate Lindsay Lohan
Perez Hilton says: Brandon Davis blows

Who said it best:
A Socialite's Life manages to come up with a fitting description of the offender:
That Brandon Davis has such a way with words. Who else but a self-involved slightly bloated wasted socialite could come up with such a clever phrase as "firecrotch."

US Weekly Online says: Feud alert! Xtina vs Mariah
Popsugar says: The latest diva feud: Mariah vs Christina
Celebrity Hijinx says: Celebrity Deathmatch 2: Mariah vs Christina
Perez Hilton says: Celebrity bitchfight, diva edition

Who said it best:
Celebrity Hijinx has an idea for reconciliation that I would definitely tune in for:
I think these two should have a mini-pageant with a talent competition where they can out-shriek each other and a wardrobe competition where they can out-skank each other. Throw in a little hair pulling and we have ourself some network TV. I recommend Britney Spears, Cher and George Michael as the celebrity judges.

A Socialite's Life says: Tara Reid resurfaces
Perez Hilton says: Did Tara Reid get more work done?
The Superficial says: Tara Reid is transforming
Dlisted says: Still fug
Popsugar says: Who's that girl?

Who said it best:
If you thought Tara had cleaned up her act, Popsugar is on the case:
Well, you look closely at the inside of her wrist you can see the little stamp from a club probably fresh from the night before so don’t be fooled by Tara’s look of the day. We’re pretty sure it’s the same old Tara in there somewhere.

Poor Britney! Her superior parenting skills really bring out the gossip funny. Dlisted has a reality tv career mapped out for him...
SPF is ready for some shit! He's been dropped on the head several times, suffered whiplash and heat stroke. He's ready for Fear Factor!
...while Haute Gossip gets inside Brit's thought process:
I don't think driving around in a convertible is the safest thing for a baby. Guess it doesn't matter much. SPF looks unconscious already anyway

The Paris Hilton brand is synonymous with skank quality

The Superficial says: Ashlee Simpson is a liar
Perez Hilton says: Introducing Asslee Simpson's new nose

A Socialite's Life is on the money as to the downside to this dismissal:
People would have tuned in droves to watch the unpleasantness on set between Jones and O'Donnell.
I know I would love to see Star getting a daily bitchslap from Rosie about Big Gay Al and his gender issues.

Popsugar says: Kate Cruise to make her debut
Defamer says: The afternoon Cruise: let's enjoy Tom while we still have him

After spending most of the morning going door to door and ridding the city of Ritalin, Tom embarked on the massive mission of doing what Tom knows how to do best - promote his upcoming film.

US Weekly Online says: Nicole Richie tells Vanity Fair, "I'm too thin"
Dlisted says: Nicole Richie's doctor can't lie for her ass anymore!
A Socialite's Life says: The Skinny on Nicole Richie

Who said it best:
I love Defamer's headline, and this comment:
Richie eats and eats--burritos, "salty cheese-and-grease kind of stuff," entire tubs of lard, whatever--and still her ribs persist in their attempt to escape from their fleshy jail and make a mad break for daylight.
But the win goes to Dlisted, because I think this is really what it comes down to:
Bitch stop lying, we know you don't eat shit! The only thing this chick eats is laxatives and Dexatrim.

Superficial, how I love you for this:
There are a few reasons I can think of why Ryan Seacrest wouldn't be able to "do this" with Teri Hatcher. I'd go into detail, but it's mostly just variations of her not having a penis, and there are only so many ways I can say it.
