Rob Lowe goes dirtbag for ‘Californication’ — and it’s all good

Rob Lowe goes dirtbag for Californication

You can't see this, but Rob Lowe's looking over at me....

I’ll pony up with a few thoughts on “American Idol” in a minute, but first I had to take a minute to welcome Rob Lowe to the legion of lecherous men on the coming season of “Californication.” I’ve fallen off since the first season, even though I loved it, but this just might bring me back.

My first reaction to this photo when my husband (who wrote this story) showed it to me: Grrr! Which is (a) not really in character, and (b) unusual when not discussing either Kyle Chandler or one of the young men who make me feel like a lecherous old woman (hello, Justin Timberlake).

And while everyone’s pointing out the obvious Brad Pitt resemblance, my mind turns toward my dear friend Liz Kelly, Celebritologist at washingtonpost.com, who has long held great affection for dirtbags. Which I never understood before.

Liz, I stand corrected. And after watching the last couple of episodes of “Parks and Recreation,” (see below — he’s brilliant), I’d be willing to give anything he stars in a chance, because he makes me laugh.  And Showtime, I embrace your cheap stunt for my attention — and I’m setting my DVR.

Leslie Nope! And he’s trying to run to the moon…

    About Me

    I've always been obsessed with pop culture and celebrity, even as a political reporter by day at washingtonpost.com and ABC News. Even after leaving journalism for media relations and consulting (Need help with press releases, brochures, annual reports, or media strategy? E-mail me -- lisa.celebjungleATgmail.com.), I pretended to be mildly appalled by the antics of the beautiful and famous -- then gobbled up tabloids and all the gossip I could find. To date, I've preserved my amateur status as a celebrity news analyst so I could compete in the gossip Olympics, but now I've decided to go pro. As a recent transplant to Los Angeles, or Celebrity Ground Zero, I'm learning to live among them as they roam unfettered over the landscape -- while praying that a behind-the-wheel Lindsay Lohan stays out of my neighborhood.
