The sci-fi geek suing James Cameron for stealing the "Avatar" idea might have a case -- but most likely ... he's wasting his time.

And, Khloe Kardashian's hubby Lamar Odom on the outs with the Lakers after the Chris Paul trade fails. What's next for Lamar and the Lakers? Former NBA star Olden Polynice joins us and blasts commissioner Stern.

Plus, Kris Humphries leaves everybody dumbfounded after his strange GMA interview.

(3:33)A man is claiming James Cameron stole his story idea when he made Avatar ... and he plans on suiing Cameron.  Seems like a common trend in Hollywood.
(8:02) TMZ's lawyer, Jason Beckerman, lets us know if the guy suiing Cameron has a case.
(18:08) Former NBA star, Olden Polynice, called in and gave us his views on Lamar Odom staying with the Lakers.  Olden compares NBA Commissioner, David Stern, to Jerry Sandusky.
(29:45) Poor Kris Humphries was blindsided today on Good Morning America when he was asked about his marriage to Kim Kardashian.  Did he really think they weren't going to bring it up?!
(36:07) A caller fills us in on what he calls 'the Kardashian curse' -- Listen up! This guy might have a point.
(47:11) We squeeze in two more topics!  Katherine Heigl says she would forgive her hubby if he cheated on her.  Last topic ... did you see X-Factor last night?!  The water works were turned on ... Nicole Scherzinger didn't take a stance, and the wrong contestant might have went home.

A ideal once voiced is fair game...Unless you are a studio concept contactor you can`t pitch as you have to be contacted and shipped in for the pitch.No one pitchs in hollywood without thier agents and legal teams recording the setdown.There are like less than five muses in the UsA not under contact but still pitching full rough drafts and concepts.Once a concept is rewritten and all scripts all rewritten many many times that script is no longer owned by the conceptor but is sold outright for less than 200 grando which gets pushed up to about 400grando for the script team of studio rewritters.No one owns anything in hollywood other than the studio system which owns and controls all films music and TV both in contracts and in copyright works for hire soldout right as in all rights owned and controlled by studio stock holders.As a working muse for over 47 years all probono I know the system and how to build and tear downs and scripts like NO one as in I`am nobody and nobody is perfictically fiction as in I can`t be as in I would be pigon holed and the whole sytem would fail.I write all over the place for over 47 years and yet only the system knows me as in dad did the same as did grand dad comissioned by the president even at times.CAm doesn`t own anything the studio does as do the stock holders which keeps the unions working and the people spending money which keeps many more working and everyone paying taxes.Iam glad I was never credited or payed as it would ruin the sytem and would make my life totally impossible as the creedsics and people would be majorly dististed by me and my storys turned big little screen and song.Join the union get a agent than you`ll never ever THINK about suein as in learn how to share or get dofted by the stock holders

Hey Alec "baldy" baldwin, fess up fatboy, you lost your cool and crapped on another woman or child. Just admit you have a problem abusing women and children, go on pseudo celebrity rehab and talk about how it is everyone else's fault. Incidently, start dressing a little nicer, slobbo, you looked like crap in baggage claim. You're starting to make flying less elegant. Nice glasses too...hiding them bloodshot eyes?
