Reports are that troubled actress Lindsay Lohan refused to kiss Charlie Sheen on the set of "Scary Movie 5". It would have been worth the try. He might turn into a prince.

Christmas is always so cheery because of the festive decorations. Even the hookers at the local Red Roof Inn in our town here in New Jersey were festooned in their holiday finest. … And the winner of the Larry King-Hugh Hefner award for 2012 is Rolling Stone guitarist Ronnie Wood, who married his fiancee, Sally Humphreys. He is 65 years old; she is 34. It's not only a May-December romance; it reflects different geological eras. The British newspaper "The Sun" quoted Wood as saying "I'm feeling great". Most of the Stones are lucky to be feeling anything at all. Wood and original stone, Keith Richards, will star in a remake of the "Night of the Living Dead". Makeup won't be necessary.
