“I don’t really know how to justify watching The Hills, to be honest.” Whitney Port, star of The Hills [MTV]

“I’m just so completely devoted to Paddy McAloon and think he’s so brilliant.

“There’s one little thing we’ll find that will imbue me with a sense of being that person. Renee Zellweger: I just put these eyelashes on and tried to think of Lamb Chop from Shari Lewis.” Tracey Ullman on her impressions [USA Today]

“It doesn’t appear to the court that the trip has a valid business purpose.” —US Magistrate Robert McQuaid on denying a motion to allow Joe Francis to attend an adult entertainment conference [USA Today]
