~Because there is no such thing as perfection, outside of lives of grace; she excelled at playing roles where she acted out our guilty pleasure. When she was being bad, she made us all feel good. What a generous comedian Rue McClanahan was, when she chose her acting roles.~
Golden Girl, Rue McClanahan has passed away. She was 76. Sassy, funny, adorable and a total minx who excelled at playing an object of desire for her entire life. Why do the good die so young? She was American. She was Golden. She owned it and wore her America well. R.I.P Rue.

War is a sad business. However, it is a fact of daily life in the world. Thankfully, in the UK, war veterans and the causalties of politics and war, have a champion in Prince Harry Windsor (the Prince that wasn’t debuted at Waitangi as a babe–like his brother was… picture belowed).
At the Rifleman’s club UK this weekend, Prince Harry announced that he’d love to go on the event he launched which will see diabled veterans of war trek 300 miles across the arctic.
Firstly, when a disabled veteran [10% of the American population are on a veteran of war benefit of some kind--so the VA's answerphone message tells you, if you ever have to call it] hits any kind of cold weather, they get an instant migrane and get on their telephones to call a doctor, quicker than Michael Jackson could have called for a Dr Conrad Murray sketchy doc, as all the metal parts in their body, scream “hell freezes over and hell no to a cold snap” [war's silent aftermath in winter is the pharmaceutical industry's dream industry to generate tax-payer paid cash if you can read budget sheets, I kid you not!]… so that’s going to be quite a trip for Prince Harry.
Kind of like… in a black comedy kind of British way really… in the mode of Mr Bean/ Rowan Atkinson humor or Monty Python/ Keeping Up Appearances slap stick, comedy-of-manners kind of way to the eyes, intellect and ears. It’s an artform developed over centuries in the Kings Courts of the UK to entertain nobility, Lords, Kings and Queens–to shed light with humor on important political decisions concerning their subjects wellbeing that they serve and lead. So, the court jester role, provided light relief in that regard, as well as the themes in William Shakespeare‘s fine plays.
He better take Grandma’s iPod with him to get through that trek.
Secondly, it’s nice to see a Prince send a message to soldiers, in the mode of the Scottish, one hit wonder, pop group The Proclaimers, that he would walk 300 miles (not 500 miles like the song, sorry fellahs… he’s a Prince!… but more like Scotsman Gerard Butler battling to the death in that 300 Hollywood, box office #1 movie), in a wounded veteran soldiers shoes if required to, on the coldest location on earth.
What a champ! You couldn’t get a more committed royal Prince to a war effort than Prince Harry Windsor. A fun message from the royal family of the UK and Commonwealth after the rather interesting week in America. [Read the last week's blog posts to see what I mean].
Now it’s America’s turn to do something epic, across the Sahara/ or Grand Canyon perhaps… for disabled veterans of War too. But let’s face it, the Obama girls are too young to serve in military duty like Prince Harry does, or make that trek just yet either. Chelsea Clinton perhaps could be the hot ticket to reply in an appropriate manner. She keeps fit like John F Kenedy Jr. used to in The Big Apple. And she’s a trooper. So go girl!
[Sending a celebrity, like a Lance Armstrong to do it, would be cheating... as Lance was never inline to a throne of power]. And for his fine sense of humor, the soldiers of the UK and commonwealth aligned with America of war, love this Ginger Prince even more. He’s too funny today. When World Peace is the only real utopian answer to all of this… nice one Harry! You made me laugh out loud today in Hollywood, that’s for sure, with “The Best of The British” sense of refinement and humor! What a riot! A funny Joker. And… a Prince of Hearts.

HORIWOOD’S TOP 10 TODAY ARE:
1. MEGAN FOX
She’s an artist!
Here in Hollywood, here’s 10 Hot Entertainment News Posts on Horiwood Com, Saturday:
Kathy Griffin did David Letterman, 10 June. Her momma is 89 years-old and Kathy’s favorite alcoholic in the world. Too funny! She calls Maya Angelo an “insufferable national treasure,” Sarah Palin “a moron,” Todd Palin “a tool,” Kathy calls Ryan Seacrest a “she”, Gail King she calls Oprah’s “political boyfriend.”
Kathy makes good with Oprah by saying that if her house did burn down, she would take the dogs, and her framed photograph of herself and Oprah Winfrey, and run out of the house… while her mom would be on her own.
A great “interview”… and in typical Kathy Griffin fashion, the man (Dave) never got a word in. She’s hysterical! :)
Poor Angie, this week she has her dad, Jon Voight and the entire GOP Repulican party of America, her man Brad Pitt and her man’s ex, Jennifer Aniston all riding her coattails for magazine covers! And now, she has her l’enfant in training, Megan Fox graduating onto her cover coattails too!
Unmatched… She’s got strong star power, Angelina Jolie… that’s for sure! In Hollywood here’s 10 Hot Posts Right Now on Horiwood.Com. Enjoy!:
… each other!
A match made in D-List heaven. Does it get better than that? Maybe, like if Spencer and Heidi and Jon and Kate Gosselin were flanking Joan Rivers and Kathy Griffin on either side. That would be the ultimate shot of the D-List set for 2009.
But seriously, these two comedic-cougars with matching truck loads of make up are priceless! The amount of laughs they have brought America between them through roasting others (including themselves), deserves a standing ovation. Give it up! [WENN]
