Michael Richards and Mel Gibson, who, when combined, apparently despise Jews and blacks and gays, can at least take solace in the fact that they haven't killed anybody.

Unlike the crazy motherf*%ker below.

O.J. Simpson Mug Shot III

It appears that O.J. Simpson, whose upcoming, "hypothetical" tell-all book was pulled by Fox, may have had an accomplice in the murders that a jury said he didn't commit: Prozac.

Mike Gilbert, a sports agent and longtime pal of Simpson, says the Juice was high as a kite on not one, but two prescriptions of the mood-altering drug at the time of the 1994 killings.

"O.J. is very much out of his mind... [which] was complicated by the Prozac," says Gilbert, who adds that Simpson continued wolfing down the drug to help him withstand the pressure as cops put the heat on him.

He believes Simpson's altered state from the Prozac allowed him to commit murder and avoid cracking. Over the years, the drug has been blamed for sparking violent and psychotic behavior. In the wake of Simpson's attempt to cash in with a book, If I Did It, and TV special, Gilbert (like the rest of us) is sickened:

"I can't forgive him for the way he has conducted himself since [the murders]. He's the kind of guy who, were he on the Titanic, would have taken two life preservers for himself and watched his kids drown."

He probably would. Feel free to take about 25 bottles of Prozac, Juice. Today. Surely Pete Doherty can set you up with his dealer.

The cons of being Tara Reid: you can't act and you have a botched boob job.

The pros of being Tara Reid: Sometimes, you look like Kelly Ripa. And formerly popular talk show hosts still show you love.

Terrible Tara

Indeed, Carson Daly recently talked to People magazine and heaped praise on his former fiancee for admitting past mistakes. The Last Call with Carson Daly host also said he was proud of his ex for speaking out about her plastic surgery.

"I saw her on the Today show recently talking about the whole thing, and I know how nervous she gets for stuff like that â€" it's funny when you know somebody so well â€" but I thought that she handled herself great, and I really commend her for her honesty and stepping up to the plate," Daly said.

Daly and Reid dated for 17 months before splitting in 2001. Carson also dated Jennifer Love Hewitt, but focused the interview on Tara. He said they scarcely keep in touch.

"We don't run in the same circles. But when we do run into each other it's always great to see her, and always very pleasant."

Good. Now, if only Clay Aiken and the aforementioned Ripa could get along as well.

Meanwhile, for those itching for a Daly update: He's been living in Los Angeles and hosting an online program called "It's Your Show." This is in addition to his late-night show on NBC .

"I'm trying to re-enter the human race," Carson said. "All of my rock 'n' roll living at MTV and my fast-paced public relationships â€" a lot of the press that people associated me with was tied in with all of that. And as I got a little bit older and moved on to NBC I thought, 'I've gotta grow up here.' "

Sounds like a lesson Lauren Conrad is also trying to follow. Do we smell a love connection in the making?

John Mayer may be a big turkey, but he didn't dine on any with Jessica Simpson last week.

THG NOTE: That may well have been the worst intro in history, but that doesn't make it untrue.

J-Simps

Despite reports to the contrary, The Hollywood Gossip has learned that the loser singer ended up spending Thanksgiving in the Big Apple, and rumors of his holiday vacation with Jessica Simpson were just that. Rumors.

As you know (especially if you're Lindsay Lohan), Rumers follow everywhere you go. In the case of Jessica and John, speculation was sparked when the two were spotted together at LAX on their way out of town.

Mayer and Simpson have recently grabbed the spotlight again after they were spotted on a date together in Malibu, California, on November 12. But that didn't lead to holiday plans. Mayer's rep laughed off the idea that the singer was making plans to go to Texas for Turkey Day.

"A press release was issued several weeks ago stating that after the American Music Awards on Tuesday, November 21, John would be flying to New York for his third consecutive Thanksgiving performance on The Late Show with David Letterman."

"This has become one of Mayer's favorite new holiday traditions. He has been on the phone with Paul [Shaffer]. Collaborating on the arrangement since he was in Japan several weeks ago on tour with Sheryl Crow and will be performing a song from his platinum-selling album Continuum that he has not performed on any other TV appearance to date. Mayer will then spend Thanksgiving with his family in Connecticut following the appearance."

Thanks for the clarification, John Mayer rep. Your job must eat it. Anyway, we hope the "musician" had a nice time last week. In other news, here are some celebrities who, like Mayer and Simpson, DID NOT spend Thanksgiving together:

During a weekend of relaxation and gratitude, Mario Lopez was glad he had a break.

It didn't hurt that he spent a few days at his sister's home in Houston and then Mexico with a certain dancing star.

Karina Smirnoff of DWTS

"We're definitely overdue for a break," Lopez told People magazine about himself and possible girlfriend, Karina Smirnoff. "I want to take a little time off, go to Mexico."

By Sunday, the pair were there, taking south of the border by beautiful storm. And while Mario wouldn't confirm the dating rumors with Smirnoff, he did refer to their bond as "a very special relationship."

Awww.

"It's very flattering when people want to see us together and like to see us be together," he said about the romantic sparks that viewers saw as the two twisted their way to a second-place finish this month on Dancing with the Stars. "We're great friends and very supportive of each other."

Channeling their inner Brangelina, Lopez and Smirnoff arrived in San Antonio on Friday night on behalf of the charity Any Baby Can, a non-profit organization that benefits severely disabled children.

For the record, we love this couple. The Hollywood Gossip would like to encourage Lopez to remain loyal to Smirnoff and avoid any more late nights with Britney Spears in Las Vegas.

Trust us, Mario, the former Mrs. Federline will play with your heart and get lost in the game.

If you thought we were a bunch of jackasses before for thinking that Johnny Knoxville looked a lot like Josh Duhamel, well, you may wish to stop reading now.

The following celebrity look-alike may make Ellen DeGeneres and Owen Wilson look reasonable. But we just go where the eerie similarities take us.

Smiling Simpson

And sometimes they take us to talentless young sisters that ride the beautiful coat tails of their siblings; along with washed up former rockers. Or, to be more specific: to Ashlee Simpson and David Lee Roth.

Don't scoff. Take a close look at Jessica's little sister and the ex-Van Halen front man. They certainly sing with the same passion, don't they?

We just wonder if Nick Lachey has the same reaction when he hears "Jump."

The comparisons to Mel Gibson were inevitable.

When Michael Richards railed against African-Americans last week, we couldn't help but think of the Braveheart star that showed his disdain for Jewish people months earlier.

Now, it turns out, the derogatory duo may have more in common that we thought.

Two Los Angeles residents have come forward and told TMZ.com that Richards is an equal opportunity hater (no, not like Lindsay Lohan; she's an equal opportunity DATER).

The pair said last spring at L.A. comedy club, The Improv, the former Seinfeld star spewed ugly words in the direction of Moses' heirs.

Carol Oschin and J.P. Fillet say they were at The Improv on April 22 when Richards took the stage. They say that in the middle of Richards' skit, a man in the audience said something to the comedian, when Richards allegedly launched into an anti-Semitic rant.

According to Oschin, Richards screamed at the audience member: "You f***ing Jew. You people are the cause of Jesus dying."

And here other people thought Madonna was to blame for that incident.

Oschin says the rant continued until Richards stormed off the stage. Meanwhole, Richards' publicist, Howard Rubenstein, actually confirmed that his client did make negative comments about Jews, but says it was part of his act.

Right. That whole killing Jesus thing is hilarious. Almost as funny as being called homophobic by Rosie O'Donnell.

The Hollywood Gossip would like to wish all readers a happy and healthy Thanksgiving weekend. Please remain safe by following these two pieces of advice:

  1. Avoid Lindsay Lohan on all highways
  2. Avoid Michael Richards at all times

Thank you and good luck. We look forward to returning Monday morning with the latest and craziest from the world of entertainment. As long as Clay Aiken doesn't cover our mouths, that is.

With all that's been going on in her life lately, we have to say that the incomparable Britney Spears is taking things in stride and doing a heck of a good job keeping a positive attitude. Then again, the prospect of no longer being married to a total ass clown has to be a good feeling, even if her impending divorce is a bit of a stressful headache.

At Tuesday's American Music Awards, Britney presented Mary J. Blige with an award for favorite female soul/R&B artist... right after host Jimmy Kimmel trashed Kevin Federline in a comedy sketch. Everyone had a nice time. Except for Jayden James, who has no idea where he is right now and who just wants to sleep. He's just a baby!

Bang a Gong, Get it On

As for the hand gesture made by Britney in this picture, we have no idea what that is supposed to signify. But of course, we have some theories:

  • "This is how many sex tapes Kevin and I made that y'all are gonna see real soon as soon as I sell 'em to David Hans Schmidt."
  • "Kevin has sold this many copies of his debut album so far."
  • "I ate this many bags of pork rinds before coming out here."
  • "This is how long Kevin lasts. No joke. Someone find me a real man!"
  • She's waving to the crowd.

Paris Hilton's pussy has gone through some rough times of late. The poor, furry thing had to endure a brutal photo shoot! But at least Tinkerbell, the tiny puppy owned by Paris Hilton, is getting nothing but love from the notorious heiress. On the eve of Thanksgiving, it's nice to know what Paris is willing to get on her knees (sorry) and express thanks for.

 

Scuba Diving

Oh, yes, and she's also thankful for the opportunity to get up close and personal with her favorite person. No, not Harry Morton. Or Nicole Richie. Both good guesses, but in the image above, she's paying tribute to a huge and unflattering portrait of herself. What a hoe.

We've already talked about the memorable Tori Spelling spoof of Clay Aiken and Kelly Ripa, and the awesome outfit rocked by sexy, newly-single supermom-of-two Britney Spears. But we're not nearly done with our American Music Awards news yet, thanks to the uber-gossip hounds at TMZ.

These guys have all the gossip, starting with Jamie Foxx, the Oscar winner and rapper, who flew solo to the soiree. It didn't take long to write down the digits of an unknown brunette (pictured). What a pimp!

Kristin After Rehearsal

Lil' Kim also hit the scene last night, dressed to kill in a revealing leopard print shirt of some kind. Photgraphers went wild trying to capture the rapper's rare public appearance, one of the few since her release from prison.

Kristin Cavallari ran into the club with her reported new beau, Nick Zano. Guess she is not really dating that ass bag Jason Wahler. Meanwhile, Nick Cannon took off with girlfriend Kim Kardashian. Slugger Jose Canseco of steroids fame was spotted with a blonde in animal print.

Also on the town were Nicole Richie, Snoop Dogg, teen starlet JoJo, and Nelly Furtado -- who was sporting some rather unfortunate bangs.
