It’s a love affair that has endured nearly 30 years.
No, it’s not Bacall and Bogey. Nope, I’m not talking about Taylor and Burton, either. It’s Springfield and Gacser.
No, my eyes are not totally closed. That naturally happens when I smile ear-to-ear.
What do you mean “Who?” G-A-C-S-E-R. It’s like “Gotcha,” except with an “errrr” on the end.
Is it possible you haven’t heard of my lifelong (albeit unrequited) love of rock star/“General Hospital” heartthrob Rick Springfield?

I am totally bummed.
Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed, rumors are flying that Jesse James cheated on his Oscar winner wife Sandra Bullock.
According to In Touch Weekly, the affair went on for nearly a year, and the woman Jesse allegedly cheated with is a tattoo model.
Michelle “Bombshell” McGee tells In Touch Weekly she and Jesse had sex numerous times while Sandra was in Georgia filming “The Blind Side.” Worse yet, she claims he didn’t use protection.
This all seems so… sordid. And, despite Jesse’s past (which includes two ex-wives, one of whom is Janine Lindemulder, a porn star who served time in prison for tax evasion), he’s always seemed so devoted, loving, honorable and crazy about Sandra.
I’ve written about their apparent passion for one another numerous times – here, here and here – so this latest bit of disturbing news is especially upsetting. And let’s not forget that Sandra has been instrumental in helping Jesse maintain custody of the daughter he shares with Janine.
Is there a chance that the tabloids have gotten it all wrong? Sure. But when Sandra goes and cancels her appearance at the London premiere of “The Blind Side” (for which she just won an Oscar), and Jesse abruptly deletes his Twitter account without a word, you’ve got to wonder.

I love Gabourey Sidibe.
It’s not so much about how great she was in “Precious” (which she was), but how much I like her every time I see her interviewed. Her personality is so fun and bubbly you just totally want to hang out with her.
And my opinion of her hasn’t changed in the slightest. In fact, I love her even more after the witty repartee she exchanged with hot-hottie-hot Gerard Butler on the Oscar red carpet.
I’m not ashamed,” Gaby told Gerard after Billy Bush got her to reveal her real feelings to him. “I’d hit that, I’m sorry.”
To which a clearly flustered Gerard managed to spit out, “I’m here. I’m available.”
“I like where this is going,” Gaby continued, without missing a beat. “Maybe we should get a bottle of champagne and see where the night takes us.”
Bam! That girl’s got some moves!

Am I the only one who bursts into tears each and every time I see Jesse James with tears in his eyes?
He did it again Sunday night at the Oscars. And – as if it wasn’t already impossible not to love the guy – he has to then go and gush to People how much wife Sandra Bullock means to him.
“She’s beautiful. She’s amazing. She takes my breath away,” Jesse confessed to People. “Sometimes I look at her and I do, I just lose my breath.”
Jesse – who obviously feels much more comfortable in jeans and a T-shirt – doesn’t mind dressing up if it’s for Sandra.
“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to support my wife and her work,” he continues. “She does it all the time for me. She goes to Mexico, to the desert, to the hospital – a lot – to support me and my work. The least I can do is put on a suit and support her.”
Fortunately, Jesse is also more than willing to show his playful side, as evidenced by the following “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” clip featuring the very funny Ross Mathews:
