Jess and John -- Together for Turkey?

11/23/2006 10:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Could Jessica Simpson and John Mayer be taking turkey in Texas today? Rumors of Mayer meeting his on-again off-again galpal Simpson's family are running rampant after the two were seen together at the American Airlines lounge in Los Angeles International Airport yesterday, as PerezHilton first reported.

Sources tell TMZ Mayer was flying back to New York for a Thanksgiving Day taping of David Letterman's "Late Show," whereas Jessica was headed back to Dallas. Us Weekly confirms with Mayer's rep that playing Letterman on Turkey Day has become "one of Mayer's favorite new holiday traditions" and that his third such gig is a go. Regardless, there's little doubt that the pair have been spending some quality time together, as their recent date in Malibu suggests.

OJ -- I Got Paid "Blood Money"

O.J. Simpson laughed off suggestions that he might not have gotten paid by News Corp. for his book and the television special that recently got nixed, but he says he's blown it all already. The New York Daily News reports that Simpson made around $660,000 for his "efforts," an amount that was revealed by News Corp. so that, according to a News Corp. rep, the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman can pursue them. But looks like it's too late -- O.J. says he's already spent all the money on "bills," and he's not apologetic. "I've been pimped for 12 years. Everyone's made money on me," he said yesterday. "It's all blood money and, unfortunately, I had to join the jackals."

Leo Dreams About Pastries, Not Diamonds

Leonardo DiCaprio has interesting daydreams and reveries, it seems. In interviews for his new film "Blood Diamond," Leo told reporters that he and his costar Djimon Hounsou would spend a lot of time, says People, hanging out in muddy swamps and chatting about ... croissant and hot chocolates? Um, yeah: "We'd sit there and dream like two weird women about pastries." On a somewhat more consequential note, DiCaprio also said that he would only buy diamonds for his mother, if she wanted one, but that he can't remember the last time he did.

So What Are Celebs Doing on Thanksgiving Anyway?

Page Six rounds up what celebs are doing for Thanksgiving based on what they've told the press in the past, and it's an interesting panoply of customs. Gwyneth Paltrow goes to Steven Spielberg's house, for instance. Patrick Swayze said that he and his family have big, big fights, and Scarlett Johansson celebrates her birthday on Thanksgiving. Andy Garcia invites people who can't be with their families, and then there's Billy Dee Williams, who says that he just can't bring himself to celebrate the holiday at all. "It was the arrival of the Europeans which disrupted the entire Native American civilization and I think that was a tragedy," says Billy Dee.

Mimi, really, what you said: if this is such an awful place, everyone sure as hell wants to get here pretty badly--is not true. Not *everyone* wants to live in America; they're quite happy in their own countries.

And not everyone outside of America hates/envies or otherwise has a grudge against a country that holds freedom and democracy to its heart. And certainly everyone knows that America has much to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving day.

Oh, if we could all speak in softer tones with kinder intent, the world would be such a better place.

Have a great Thanksgiving, my American friends.

I believe the English came over and the first Thanksgiving came tgo be because they didn't want their king telling them what religion they MUST worship.

What is he talking about?

#31, my my you don't handle an opinion that differs from yours well now do you? And that trailer park remark? Now THAT was original. Did you think that up all by yourself? You must certainly have a couple of PhD's lying around with brilliance like that. And I think it's safe to assume YOU live in a gated community overlooking the Pacific. Won't you share more of your wisdom with us Kevin??? Waiting breathlessly.......

Funny about the Indians....    

I am of European ancestry on one side, and of native american indian on the other. I can tell you first hand how Thanksgiving Day (for us anyway) is a way to celebrate what we have, our good fortune, our wealth, our health, happiness and family. The holiday may have started off as a pilgrim/indian homage, but in todays world and living in America, why not just celebrate it as the one day in the year to truly be appreciative for what we have. It's a time to eat joyously (because we are fortunate enough to HAVE food), spend time with our families (because we are fortunate enough to HAVE family), and spend time being thankful for everything in this world that we have....and to be thankful to be living in this country, where we have the money and things that can make sure that we are all 'fat americans', I happen to like it that way. It's NOT about the Indians anymore, and I really don't think it should be either.

Also, as part American Indian, I can tell you that this goes hand in hand with the recent comments by Michael Richards. The blacks in this country need to wisen up and stop living in the past...just like we american indians do, maybe I should use this holiday as a way of screaming and shouting my thoughts about what happened to my ancestors. I wonder what this society would do if we had a day to celebrate when the white man started the slavery tradition. We should eat a turkey for that!!! (Sarcasm inserted here). I could just hear the cries of wrong (I can hear Jesse Jackson screaming now!) that the blacks would be screaming. But somehow, since it's the american's okay right????? Ya know what, it is okay......because it didn't happen to me, and my life has always been good, and there is nothing that we can do about it now right? Other "cultures" in our country need to stop feeling sorry for what their ancestors (NOT EVEN THEMSELVES, they've always had good lives too) went through and stop expecting some kind of special treatment for it.

This country is so screwed up, when we can celebrate the beginning of a genocide to one race by eating a feast......while other races still cry discrimination against their people if you look at them wrong or aren't friendly enough to them, or say something that is "improper" in their eyes.
God Bless the USA, and the indians for letting things in the past stay where it the past.

Jessica will get used and passed around for a couple of years and then she'll disappear into oblivion.

John Mayer denies the relationship because he's not serious about her.

Gwnnie Paltrow loved America when she was making her movies and her millions. Now that she moved to England she finds American so dumb. What a phoney whore she is. ColdPlate and Paltrow can stay over there.
