About Face for Renee

Renee Zellweger caused a stir over the weekend when she showed up at a Hollywood function looking different.

Yup. She doesn’t look the way she used to look, so that got some tongues wagging.

Yesterday, Renee told PEOPLE magazine she’s glad that people think she looks different.

“I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows," she told the magazine.

She thinks the whole thing is silly, and good for her. “Perhaps I look different. Who doesn't as they get older?”

And for the record, she’s starting to look a little bit like Glenn Close – which is not necessarily a bad thing.

Chestnuts Roasting Barista-Style

It's the most wonderful time for a new coffee.

At least, that's what Starbucks would have you believe.

Get ready for Chestnut Praline Latte.

The perfect beverage to wash down those holiday meals, don't you think?

It's Starbucks first holiday drink in five years, and industry experts think it's the chain's answer to the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Dunkin' Donuts.

Starbucks told the folks at Fox News that their drink is "inspired by the time-honored holiday tradition of warm roasted chestnuts… with freshly steamed milk and flavors of caramelized chestnuts and spices." You can add whipped cream and praline sprinkles, if you wish.

If you're salivating, grab a napkin or a bib. The drink won't be available nationwide until November 21.

Lady Batman?

At first, it reads like one of those hoax articles.

But then when you realize that the person they're writing about is Lady Gaga, it makes you go, "Hmmm..."

The folks at are reporting that Gaga boughtbought a Malibu mansion recently.

One accessory unit that came with the $23 million price tag was what The New York Daily News is calling a "Batcave."

Said Batcave can only be accessed by an underground tunnel, and it features a bowling alley, arcade games, a home theater and an 800-bottle wine cellar.

If Gaga gets tired of it, she can always lease it out as a frat house.

Annoying Then, Annoying Now

Yes, I know, it's hard to believe, but Kim Kardashian was just about as annoying 20 years ago as she is now.

Thanks to Entertainment Tonight, we all get to witness just how annoying, on the video they unearthed from ther eighth-grade graduation.

"My name's Kim Kardashian, I'm the dopest on the ropest person in this class," she says on the video. "I'm dope on the rope, and you should learn my vocabulary."

One of her classmates says, "Define 'dope,' Kim."

And she responds, "Kim is dope."

This is one of those times when jokes simply write themselves...

Bizarrely Funny

Shia Labeouf has had more than his share of troubles in the past several months.

And now, Rob Cantor - a singer and songwriter - has penned a tune in tribute to Shia.

Well, not really a tribute.

More an extremely weird and bizarrely funny performance piece - featuring Rob, a couple of choruses, a troupe of dancers and what may be a partial philharmonic orchestra.

Check it out - it's perfect for Halloween.

And make sure you stay until the very end for an unexpected surprise.

Whose Fault Is It Anyway?

Monica Lewinsky, one-half of the scandal that almost brought down the Clinton administration, spoke over the weekend at the Forbes Magazine 30 Under 30 Summit.

As an introduction, she recapped the story of her affair with Bill Clinton.

She was fresh out of college and "more than averagely romantic," as she tells it. "I fell in love with my boss – in a 22-year-old sort of way."

When the story broke, "within 24 hours, I became a public figure." All thanks to the Internet and the Drudge Report.

"I was patient zero," she said, "the first person to have their reputation completely destroyed worldwide via the Internet."

The entire speech can be found below. It's about 25 minutes long - but interesting in a historical sort of way...

Filling in for Rob Lucas

Good Morning! Its 7:25 am and I have been up 3 hours. I have been doing the morning show off and on for 4 weeks. Rob Lucas has had a terrible time with his voice. I actually think it was a combination of a virus and overuse. Either way. He is on strict voice rest. I am trying to hold down the fort for him. I can't figure out what time to go to bed. Should I nap in the afternoon? How long should I nap? Should i eat first? Oh and when you talk really fast to me, I'm tired and need a second to process it. Pathetic I know. But here is my blog to say how much I appreciate waking up to Rob Lucas on my radio. He tells me what I need to know to start my day. When I get to the station at 4:45am, i realize I am the one who has that responsibility for you. Heres to the morning warriors. Thank you

Rob Lucas No Voice Social Media Tour - Short & Sweet Update 2

Not a lot to report, other than I sound kind of close to what I do after screaming all day at a Bills game. Which is a huge improvement over where I was, but not consistently good enough to be on the radio. But at least I don't have to work at speaking anymore, words come out easily, but not with the fullness of voice I need. See the rollercoaster ride that this is? With every positive, still many hurdles to jump.

But I've still got time to go, to hit the new return to work target date that I have mentally given myself (you gotta have goals!) A lot of time to heal. So until then it's pretty much silence, and a MAJOR appt. with the Ear, Nose and Throat docs on Thursday, that I assume will go a long way in determining when I can come back to work. I'll probably be working with a speech pathologist along the way, regardless of how things turn out. I'll check in with that story at some point Thursday/Friday.

Funny last story: In my last blog, I spoke of my wife and reflexology having a great effect on me. I had a dentist appt. yesterday, with work being done on 3 teeth that have been problems for me for about 6 months. When my wife looked up the teeth I had drilled/filled/resined/shaved, they ALL had strong connections to the larynx, sinus, and neck, my problem areas! Crazy! And yes, there is a reflexology map of dental/teeth & body connections just the same as there is for feet.

Coincidence? Maybe. But If I wake up tomorrow (Wednesday as I write this) and have my voice back, I don't think so…
