And Touch a Celeb

Rainn WilsonEver feel like asking Rainn Wilson how much of a nerd he is compared to his character Dwight on "The Office?" Or maybe you've been itching to talk to Fonzie ever since "Happy Days" went off the air. Well thanks to the nice people over at Skype, your time has come.

Teaming up with parent company eBay, Skype is auctioning off a chance to talk to celebrities on the phone. Not just any phone; a Skype phone that will allow them to see the celebrity on the other end, so you know that Rob Lowe isn't fixing himself a snack instead of focusing all his attention on your "West Wing" questions.

Participating celebrities include Kristen Bell, Adam Duritz of Counting Crows, Seth MacFarlane ("Family Guy"), Rachel Bilson (The OC) and the entire cast of Nickelodeon's "Zoey 101." It's a good chance you'll find someone you really want to chat.

Proceeds from the auctions will benefit The Young Storytellers Foundation, a Los Angeles based arts education organization.

Wonderful to see a postiive story like this on Entertainment People donating their time to what sounds like a very influential Cause. Seen enough crap about pantyless, N word, drunken View appearances, etc. about other bozos to last a decade.

Congratulations to those giving of themselves and TMZ balancing out some of the news/tips.

Just to be clear, only the three auctions labeled "video call" will be video calls. The rest will be voice only. So, sadly, you will *not* be able to see if Rob Lowe is fixing a snack. Still, pretty cool.

It is disgusting that celebrities can say or do anything they want and then say "I'm sorry" and all is forgiven and forgotten. No matter what they say, Mel Gibson is and anti-semitic, Michael Richards is a racist, Isaac Washington is homophobic. All of them deep down and at heart and forever stay that way. Otherwise they would not have said what they said. If you do not have those feelings, it doesn't comes to mind to say those things. If anybody believe their apologies, they are the biggest fools that God have created on the face of the Earth.
