After all that fuss about Britney Spears and her undergarment choices (or lack thereof) last week, plus the Danny DeVito thing and the Michael Richards thing and whatever other celebrity news I've managed to banish from my head, I feel as though I have a gossip hangover. My eyes glaze over when I read about Andy Dick getting offensive in his stand-up comedy routine and I cannot possibly be persuaded to care. Snoop Dogg's arraignment delayed? Yawn. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes throwing a big reception? Oh, lord, I need some aspirin, Alka-Seltzer, dry toast ...

I suspect I'm not the only one who feels that way right now; the celebrity news sites appear to be a bit thin on news this week, grabbing at straws about George Clooney, who always provides an opportunity for a charming photo and who never flashes anything inappropriate to the general public. Perhaps everyone needs a break from a little too much celebrity exposure. Or maybe we're all trying to get through the holiday season and can't raise much interest in movie stars on the town, filing for divorce, or desperately seeking attention. I can hand you this week's dish, but bear in mind that I'm writing it with a cold compress on my slightly green face, wondering what the best cure would be for a gossip hangover.
