    Oh, Duchovny. Yale-educated, deadpan funny, strangely-hot Duchovny. You have checked into sex addict rehab, and it is a shame, a crying shame. We feel bad for your wife, the hot-and-smart actress Tea Leoni. We feel bad for your kids, because nobody wants to think about a parent having sex with anybody. But mostly, we feel bad for ourselves. David. David. You have a sex addiction? You must have sex with many women? Don't lock...

    If you missed 90210 the first time around, it's hard to explain. It was an instantaneous, un-self-aware camp classic. It was absolutely unwatchable while demanding that you HAD TO WATCH. Tori Spelling, before becoming the wronged daughter, the wedded-and-babied reality show chick, was simply a spoiled, freakishly untalented actress -- who was cast, in her daddy's show, as the eternal virgin (eew!). Ian Ziering, before he danced with the stars, played the cool guy --...

    Remember that woman who twittered the earthquake -- from her OB-GYN's office? She was in the stirrups when it happened. Whether you think she was an oversharer or a wildly tough chick, she's been done one better. Because now someone is having a baby, twittering all the while. For all we know, other women have twittered their labor already, but this is the first friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend to do so. We think it's cool. A little...

    91-year-old Ernest Borgnine has written a memoir, Ernie, and not only does he have real stuff to talk about -- like winning an Oscar, working with Marlon Brando, Bette Davis, etc. -- he's been downright sassy on his book tour (if you haven't seen the YouTube clip, it's after the jump). He told the LA Times that older actors should still be in pictures. I don't know how Karl Malden is right now, but...

    photo of the 2003 Pasadena Freeway bike ride by Virginia Renner Occidental Professor Robert Gottlieb's latest book -- Reinventing Los Angeles: Nature and Community in the Global City -- is going to be awfully tempting to Angelenos who care about urban planning, the environment and social change. Get a taste when he reads today at Dutton's at 2pm -- and then ask the store to order a copy for you. In his book, Gottlieb...

    Eli Broad and Antonio Villaraigosa at the Grand Avenue announcement Almost two years ago, Frank Gehry, Eli Broad and the big developer folks from Related Companies announced the Grand Avenue Project. A blocklong development of housing, a hotel, retail & greenspace -- all designed by Gehry -- would complement Disney Hall. Getting the development together was tremendously complicated, and it probably wouldn't have happened without Broad's power and support. Since the exciting, fancy unveiling...

    R&B singer Ike Turner, who some consider a father of rock-n-roll, did not go gently into that good night when he died at his home near San Diego in December. In fact, the 76-year-old was high, high, high on cocaine. The coroner reports that he died of "cocaine toxicity." And while it's sad when anyone dies of drug use -- because generally, we figure nobody starts partying with the idea that it's going to...

    Last week, four men targeted a house on Avenue 54 in in Highland Park near the Gold Line. It was early evening - 8, 8:30 - and the team of robbers broke into the house, only to find its resident inside. The home's occupant was pissed. And had a gun. One of the four -- a 21-year-old -- was shot multiple times. By the time his buddies got him to Glendale Memorial Hospital, he...

    Yesterday the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved additional steps for Project 50, a three year pilot program that will help get some of the most vulnerable people living on skid row into permanent housing. Volunteers completed hundreds of early-morning interviews to identify the 50 people who were in the most trouble -- people living on the streets with chronic illnesses, like liver disease and AIDS, many of whom are also mentally ill. Now a...

    It's been 130 years since the Supreme Court has heard direct arguments about the method of execution -- back then, it was the firing squad. Today, it'll be on a Kentucky case; Kentucky, like California and 35 other states, uses lethal injection. In December 2006, a California judge found that, the LA Times reports, There was "more than adequate" evidence that the state was violating the U.S. Constitution after hearing testimony that lethal injection...
