  • If you're looking forward to the upcoming "Sherlock Holmes," starring Robert Downey, Jr., you can now look forward to two of them, according to Variety. Warner Bros. is already in talks to have a sequel written.

    I woke up this morning to 'Showbibiz Tonight' (love this program) but with my eyes closed, I heard Sally Field say that 'the people who oppose the health plan should be taken away' and 'they are mental ill'. Sally just displayed her IQ of -25 'To The Whole World – AGAIN'.
    Thank You Showbizz for letting us see 'the nut case' in action. Boniva should cancel her contract for 'breach of mouth'.
