“Mad Men” actor Jon Hamm called out Kim Kardashian and her reality-star ilk for being the vapid twats that they are in next month’s issue of Elle, telling the magazine:

‘Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a fucking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly… [the success of reality TV stars] doesn’t make any sense to [me].”

So of course Kim was promptly Google alerted to the comment and tweeted in response:

“Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, ‘stupid,’ is in my opinion careless. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another.”

Except no, we don’t. You don’t HAVE to respect anybody. Particularly anybody who got their start being fucked on camera. The Daily Mail says:

During an appearance on The Today Show this morning, 41-year-old Hamm firmly stood by his remarks.

When asked about the matter by host Matt Lauer, Hamm responded: ‘I don’t think [my comments] were careless. I think they were accurate.’

‘It’s a part of our culture that I certainly don’t identify with, and I don’t really understand the appeal of it other than in a sort of car crash sensibility… it’s not something that I partake in or enjoy, but it is what is and here we are.’

They only way Jon Hamm could have pwned Kim Kardashian any harder is if he’d brought in a slide show of screen caps from the sex tape and illuminated each of his points with stills of her with a big black cock in her mouth. That would have been fucking awesome.

At the Ft. Lauderdale airport last week:

The rest of Lindsay Lohan’s interview aired this morning on the Today Show, and it’s just her regurgitating the same shit she always says after she gets busted and forcibly sober — it’s not my fault, I invested too heavily in my relationships, I’ll be at the Oscars in five years, etc., etc. She claims she’s through with dating for a while and planning to focus on her career. The good thing is she never has to worry about being lonely. She still has all those chins to keep her company.

Leaving her hotel in New York yesterday:

Matt Lauer’s interview with Lindsay Lohan will air in its entirety tomorrow, but they released a teaser clip on this morning’s “Today Show” in which she professes to be clean and sober and on the fast track to success. MSNBC says:

Lohan said: “[The nightlife and parties are] not my thing anymore. I went out, actually, a few months ago with a friend. And I was so uncomfortable. Not because I felt tempted, just because it was just the same thing that it always was before. And it just wasn’t fun for me. I’ve become more of a homebody. And I like that.”

“Do you think people have gotten back, or can get back to the point where they trust you?” Lauer asked. “In other words, professional people? You know, if they say to you, ‘Come host ‘Saturday Night Live’,’ that’s a big commitment. And do you think the producers and directors of movies and television projects are going to get back to the part where they can go, ‘You know what? Yeah, we can count on Lindsay. We can bank on her?’”

“I think I still need to go through the process of proving myself, you know, with ‘SNL,’ being on time, being, you know, keeping my — can’t say the word — but stuff together,” [Lohan said]. “Being able to have this opportunity with ‘SNL’ and the film, I’m gonna do what I’m supposed to do and do it as best as I can.”

Yes, making it through a whole week of rehearsals and one 90-minute taping thought ought to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that she’s completely bankable again. I don’t know what what we were all thinking.

Steven Tyler called in to the Today Show this morning to address rumors that his fall in the shower yesterday was precipitated by a booze-and-pill bingefest. According to TMZ:

Tyler [said], “I get that people think that [I was using again] … It still bothers me a little, but it’s something that I have to deal with for the rest of my life.”

He added, “We flew last night from Paraguay after that incident and we’re in Argentina for two hours. And anyone who knows anyone who uses substances wouldn’t be up at this hour having a talk with Matt Lauer and the rest of America.”

Moments later, Matt asked, “But you’re clean and sober, that’s not the issue?”

Tyler replied, “No, it’s not the issue.”

Well, at the very least, I can finally stop wondering what Janice Dickinson would look like as zombie-fied Lloyd Christmas from “Dumb & Dumber.” I know that one’s probably been keeping you up nights, too.

After the vicious denial she gave the last time she was on The Today Show, a visibly subdued Dina Lohan finally admitted to Matt Lauer this morning that her daughter Lindsay was in fact an addict. MSNBC says:

The reason she’d been unwilling to admit [her daughter was an addict] before was because Lindsay had to admit it first. “I wasn’t in denial,” Dina said. “As a mother it wasn’t for me to come and tell the world about her problem… It was for her to come to her evolution. As a mother we protect.”

“She’s just a different person. She’s been in a couple facilities, but this one to me has really changed her.”

She’s obviously still in denial, only she’s switched gears from “she’s not an addict” to “now she’s a changed woman!” And not only that — she’s also in denial about that crappy weave making her look young and hip and sexy. The overprocessed hair extensions ship sailed about fifteen years ago, sister. And everyone on board drowned in a sea of that frosted pink lipstick you’re wearing. I think it’s finally time to let go.

And speaking of complete denial, Taylor Momsen at the EMAs:
