NEW YORK – Courtney Love yuks it up, anyone can write a song, Rosie puts on a good show and Britney may have another movie in the works in today's Foxlight.
Courtney Love (search) is funny. Get her a sitcom. Just the transcripts from her arraignments would make great scripts. Outside a courtroom the other day, she rambled to reporters about missing money, an affair with a married man and how she likes to toss sleeping pills at police officers. Then -- cue the laugh track -- she said to reporters, "Don't tell -- it's a big secret I used to do drugs."
She also said she "didn't even shoplift." OK, that's a dated Winona Ryder reference -- she'll need writers. But come on, she's like a skinny Anna Nicole. A more attractive train wreck.
If she can have a sitcom, can't John "Don't Call Me Cougar" Mellencamp be a college professor? Sure. He teaches rock music history at Indiana University. Told his students anyone can write a song.
The Foxlight caught Rosie O'Donnell's (search) baby the other night on Broadway. The Boy George story "Taboo" has reportedly had more script doctors than Schwarzenegger's campaign ad-libs. But guess what? There are some amazing performances. Whether or not the world wants to see the Boy George story is another question.
Finally, Britney Spears (search) may be turning her book into a made-for-TV movie. No word whether Spears will appear in something tentatively called "A Mother's Gift." The book is about an aspiring teenage singer who travels from her home in the South to an East Coast conservatory. Didn't they make this already, and wasn't it called "Crossroads?" Oops, they'll apparently do it again.
