After a two-year-long battle with colon and liver cancer, Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees died today at the age of 62. Robin had been in and out of the hospital in a couple of years, but things were sort of looking up recently when he recovered after coming out of a coma brought on by pneumonia. But a spokesperson for the Gibbs family said today that Robin's now hip shimmying with his twin brother Maurice in heaven and tickling the ears of the angels with his high-pitched velvet voice.
"The family of Robin Gibb, of the Bee Gees, announce with great sadness that Robin passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery. The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time."
Barry Gibb is now the only living member of the Bee Gees.
This is seriously the week the disco ball stopped spinning for good. First Donna Summer and now Barry Gibb. Let's all form a prayer circle around Giorgio Moroder and Alicia Bridges.
Rest in peace, Robin Gibb. Thank you for this (I'm talking about the music AND the glamour):

When I first read that the NYDN found out the identity of John Doe #2 and knew his name, I was sort of relieved, but only because it meant we could stop calling him John Doe #2. There's TOO many Johns involved in this mess. There's John Travolta, John Doe #1 and John Doe #2. So I was happy that we can start calling John Doe #2 by his government name. But get this shit, John Doe #2's name is JOHN! AAAAAAAAH! Oh well, I guess the world can never have too many Johns, said every hooker.
The NYDN ID'ed John Doe #2 as 40-year-old John Truesdale, a massage therapist who works at the spa at The Mandarin Oriental in Atlanta. The NYDN tried to talk to him, but he refused to open his lips about the case. When they asked John for a picture, he laughed before saying, “I thought I was supposed to be anonymous." John T dropped his $2 million lawsuit again Travolta last week, but plans to file it again now that Gloria Allred is his new lawyer.
The NYDN says that John Truesdale ("More like John LIESdale" - Travolta's lawyer Marty Singer while smugly patting himself in his self-satisfaction place) is 6-feet tall, weighs in at 250 pounds and holds a black belt. I know those stats are supposed to make us think that John Truesdale's case ain't shit since he is obviously strong enough to defend himself against John Travolta's groping hand, but I'm not going there yet. Never underestimate the terror-inducing power of Travolta's finger-eating hole of destruction. Staring at it as opens up like the mouth of a naked mole rat begging for a leaf will bring grown 250 pound men to their knees! John Travolta's got the Eye of Sauron of b-holes!
Oh, and another massage therapist is throwing a lawsuit at Travolta for allegedly harassing him at the Eden Roc in Miami. Well, at least this one's not named John.
On the season finale of SNL last night, the show's host Mick Jagger sang out a goodbye lullaby to Kristen Wiig as all of her cast master danced her off. It's the end of a baby hands era! While watching this last night, some people probably thought to themselves, "No more Judice! No more Gilly! No more Penelope!" But all I kept thinking about was how much Kristen's business suit looked like extra floppy foreskin to me. It kind of does. But what doesn't look like a dick bib to me? Everything does. I had a manicure yesterday and as she cut away my cuticles, I got kind of sad. Cuticles are like nail foreskin and she totally circumcised me!
One day after Mark Zuckberg's farts became worth five thousand times more than the contents of most of our checking accounts, he married his girlfriend of 9 years Priscilla Chan. If I was a brand new billionaire, my wedding would be in a custom-built In-N-Out castle and Shauna Sand would officiate the ceremony in a giant lucite heel jacuzzi tub while the first season cast of Kids Inc. (sans Fergie) sang Samantha Fox's greatest hits in a huge basket of kittens. But Mark Zuckberg kept it low-key and instead married Priscilla in their backyard in front of around 100 family and friends. BORING!
UsWeekly says that Mark and Priscilla spent five months planning the wedding and kept gossiping bitches from spilling the news by telling their guests the party was to celebrate her graduating from medical school. Mark wore a suit (I'm sure there's a hoodie attached to the back of his blazer), Priscilla wore a dress, he gave her a simple ruby ring and Billie Joe Armstrong performed at the reception. Both Mark and Priscilla announced the news last night by changing their Facebook statuses to "married."
Mark and Priscilla's official wedding picture looks more like Herp and Derp's official wedding picture, but that's not the most disappointing part about all of this. The most disappointing part is that I'm pretty sure Priscilla is marrying Mark for love and not because he's richer than five Oprahs. Just think of all the gold diggers Priscilla Chan kept from doing their life's work by marrying Mark solely for his multi-billion dollar fortune. Think of the Heather Mills of the world, Priscilla. How fucking selfish of her!
Because one of my goals in Dlisted's life is to feature every cast member from Models Inc., the 90s tarnished jewel of Aaron Spelling's empire, today's Hot Slut is Cassidy Rae! That last part rhymed and I'm not proud of it. Cassidy Rae was thrown onto Melrose Place as one of Jake's pieces just so they could spin her off onto Models Inc, where she played Sarah Owens, a fresh-faced model that took the modeling world by storm in the fashion capital of the universe L.A.!
Cassidy Rae's beautiful butt chin mesmerized me as much as her amazing acting skills did. I'd like to think that Cassidy Rae was really method and created a backstory for her character that included the time Sarah Owens was a wet, piece of emotionless cardboard that was brought to life by the same bitch that brought Pinnochio to life. If that's the case, Cassidy Rae nailed it! Cassidy Rae was the Blake Lively of her time and she's the one who should be starring in Oliver Stone movies and shit. Not Blake!
And for the zero of you who crave episodes of Models Inc. at all hours of the night, someone uploaded tons of episodes onto YouTube. They're dubbed in German, but you don't need to know German to feel what these highly-trained actors are throwing down. They're so good at acting that their acting transcends all languages!
