A Little of the Old In and Out

In: Superhead. The Corsair has been following the torrid media advance of Karrine Steffans, AKA "Superhead," with a certain suave mischiviousness. Today, our favorite superhero gossip duo, Rush and Molloy excerpt some of the choicer morsels of her sex life pre-Bill Maher (Eew), who, BTW, prefers "dark meat" in his chickenheads:

"After inviting her to his home at 4 a.m., Sean (P. Diddy) Combs kicked his manservant Fonzworth Bentley out of a guest bedroom so he and Steffans could spend 15 minutes making love. 'You're one of the best,' she says P. Diddy told her. Steffans writes: 'I said the same to him, when, in actuality, he was average.' Ouch."

15 minutes making love? 15 minutes doesn't even make a decent blog post. But, hey, time is money to Diddy, all things told. Still, if can run a marathon, but can't satisfy a "superhead," he might want to cut back on those Junior's cheesecakes. I'm just saying ...

"... Steffans says she got around to Whitney Houston's husband, Bobby Brown, in late 2002. Steffans says she never saw him do drugs. But she worried for his mental health during a frantic encounter where 'he told me he was a member of Al Qaeda and that President Bush was looking for him."

So, maybe Brown was going in for the dangerous-man-with-a-past pickup line angle with Superhead. Or something. Who knows? We won't entertain the possibility of the insidious influence of the "cracks." And, anyhow, what would an Al Qaeda member be doing with Sharon in the Holy Land? More.

Out: Paris Colonizes the Loo. The Corsair doesn't know why, but sometime during emergence of the Paris Hilton celebrity phenomenon, ladies in clubs across the country silently allowed Paris Hilton to skip to the head of the bathroom line. No one else could do this, but Paris had the assent of clubgoing women everywhere. A Bad idea. ApPEEsement never works, it only emboldens the authoritarian personality. Now, it appears, Paris has amped up her game -- steroidally -- taking it to a whole new level, according to the 3AM Girls:

"IS Paris Hilton loos-ing the plot? We only ask because she has been going to extraordinary lengths to make sure that she is treated like a queen in the, erm, throne room.

"The 24-year-old hotel heiress spent Monday night boozing it up at swish West End club Kabaret's Prophecy. But whenever she went to powder her nose she insisted that the little girls' room was cleared of other revellers first.

"One clubber tells us: 'Paris was putting away the vodka and Red Bulls and seemed to be having a really good time. But whenever she needed the loo, security were dispatched to clear the ladies for her arrival.

"'Then she and her friends would go in together while her flunkies guarded the door.'"

In: Discoveryx7. The New York Times Discovery Channel actually has an interesting show on. Alert the media! We know, we know: DTimes tends to focus on chaotic African war zones, CIA technology and behind the sces at the military academies. All the serial killers out there presently enjoying DTimes will be discouraged by the programming of the highly original "Discovery Times 7." According to their site:

"Times Seven is an intersection of the best journalism, reportage, analysis and thinking from two great news organizations: The New York Times and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
"Times Seven features innovative first-person reporting and a wide range of stories presented in five distinct categories:

"� THE LEAD - A key story of the week, told in a unique and 'multi-layered' approach.

"� ENTERPRISE - A feature report or investigation that draws upon the journalistic strength of The New York Times and CBC News.

"� SCIENCE TIMES - Breakthroughs and developments in science and medicine.

"� ARTS & TRENDS - The latest trends in arts and culture.

"� COMMENT - The final word, a place for intelligent and provocative commentary from The New York Times columnists and public figures.

"At Times Seven, we tell the untold stories - we come at situations from fresh angles, with pace, wit, action, dynamism. We treat the world as our neighborhood, and mankind as our business."

Indeed they do.

Out: How High 2. Does our culture really need another dumb pothead comedy? They are making a "How High 2." The Corsair doesn't know why, but they are. We suppose, logically, that the sequel is happening because a) "How High" was so cheap to produce and -- we guess -- b) it did boffo box office and DVD sales.

According to Moviehole: "Rapper turned actor Method Man is set to build a couple more bridges into the acting world this year. "Talking to, the dawg says he's set to not only do a guest shot on money-spinning series 'C.S.I,' but star in a sequel to cult fave 'How High.' 'We're working on How High part 2 right now,' Method Man says, 'My mans writing it, the same guy that plugged me into those CSI episodes, Dustin [Abraham], he's writing the second How High, he wrote the first one.'"

And for those of you who, like me, wisely abstained, Flathat says:

"Method Man plays Silas, a scientifically advanced pot dealer (a veritable pharmacist with weed for any circumstantial ailment) and Redman is Jamal, a man still living at home after attending his two-year college for six years, when they meet at the 'THC' college entrance exams. Both try to 'relax their nerves' with a pre-test smoke and naturally become friends.

"When they smoke 'Ivory,' the plant that sprung from soil mixed with Silas's dead friend's ashes, they can see his ghost. Ivory (only visible to those who smoke him) assists the two on their exams, helping them make perfect scores that get them into Harvard."

Sounds like a movie we'll strenuously avoid.
