    I hate how Twitter has taken the filter off people's public reactions to death. I hated it when Ashton Kutcher Tweeted without hours of Brittany Murphy dying, and now we have this airhead Tila to deal with. She could be sincere, and if so I feel sorry for her, but just a quick look at her reactions give me this awful feeling its more about Tila than about the deceased.

    It's even WORSE than Ashton Kutcher tweeting, Krom. At least Ashton Kutcher was tweeting his reaction to public news. Tila Tequila actually ANNOUNCED the death through her tweet. The police department hadn't even said anything yet so it wasn't in the press. It's alllllllll about Tila. Can't stand the drama queen.

    I guess it didn't bother me that Ashton tweeted about Brittany's death. How is it any different than any of us posting about it here? He tweets, we post on FORT. He has a huge following and has become a social media mogul... it might have been odd if he had not posted about her death.
    Okay I love FORT's casino, but I really am not very good. If anyone wants to donate their FORT $$ I would gladly accept http://www.fansofrealitytv.com/forum....php?do=donate

    Ashton and Brittany were in a relationship for some time, so I didn't have a problem with him tweeting about it. He lost someone he loved, so it seemed normal for him to "talk" about it.

    ETA: Katy Perry and Russell Brand just announced their engagement. Isn't this one of the signs of the apocalypse?

    I didn't mind it either. In fact, I checked his twitter soon after hearing of her death to see if he had posted about it. They were in a very public relationship for some time and it would have been odd if he had not addressed it. You know he would have been asked for a reaction by the paps so he beat them to the chase.

    From what I am reading they have been in a relationship and TT says she loved her so I don't see the difference. I hate twitter I think it is juvenile and I have no desire to know what some celebrity is doing all day.

    This is just...wow...so sad...

    Troubled comic Artie Lange landed in the hospital after stabbing himself nine times in an apparent suicide attempt, sources told The Post. Lange's frantic mom called 911 Saturday morning after she entered his Hoboken apartment and found the bloodied funnyman, a law-enforcement source said. Lange sustained six "hesitation wounds" and three deep plunges. A source close to Lange's management team confirmed that the Howard Stern sidekick stabbed himself, adding that his mother had come to visit him that day to drop off food. Surgeons managed to save Lange despite heavy bleeding. "We all have our demons," Stern said on-air this week, referring to Lange's past battles with addiction. "Artie has given this show tremendous moments of great comedy. He's a tremendous contributor. He is a good man. Don't forget how great he is."

    Russell is extremely funny, gifted and intelligent, and has a rapid-fire wit in interviews; he's very entertaining, even if only for the curiousity factor. But he is very obviously fully "on the fringe", and there are huge red flags on his personal "romantic" life (unless that is all an entertainment ruse).

    It's interesting that Katy Perry was raised in a religious family, and her early musical endeavors were gospel/religious oriented. Methinks she was heaviliy suppressed by her parents.

    Either she rebelled, found her true self, or went for the bigger money genres (or some combination thereof). She may be over-compensating with Russell, though. Maybe it's a business-marriage?

    I file this under "there's someone for everyone".
    The Bachelor/Bachelorette series is a soap opera with unskilled actors, bad writing, and beautiful locations...it even edits the real moon!

    Ana Banana... that is sad. I had heard he was hospitalized but I had just quickly assumed that it was due to poor health.

    Publicly passing on condolences to me is far different than actually announcing a death on such a stupid website.
