Dodged Bouncer Beatdown

"Avatar" star Sam Worthington went toe-to-toe with a massive bouncer just before getting arrested outside an Atlanta bar, at least according to the bouncer ... who called in to talk about Sam's strange behavior.

Plus, Richie Sambora dropped in to talk Hurricane Sandy relief, his new album, his daughter (with Heather Locklear) breaking into acting, and ... guitar lessons for Harvey???

Also, if Gov. Chris Christie's thinking about a presidential run in 2016 ... we've got bad news: America doesn't elect fat candidates! We tried to find one in the last century, but no dice. Not-so-deep down ... are we all fattists?

Harvey, that was the stoopidest reply ever. The family was in BANKRUPTCY before he won. Just because the business went to auction recently doesn't stand up with your reasoning.

Obviously you never heard of President Taft. He was over 300 pounds. President in 1912

I believe Taft was considered a fat president. I think the problem is that not being able to control your own body is a sign that you can't control your impulses and be thoughtful and reasonable. This bears out in Christies my way or the highway approach to leadership. He also has a condescending and nasty way of speaking to other residents of the state when they challenge his opinions. He can't seem to control his mouth for eating or speaking.


Is that so wrong to not trust someone like that? We are having a lessser of two evils election right now. You might say by the time the next elections rolls around, Christie might not seem so weird.

Funny to see the Phillip Phillips story since TMZ themselves did a story back on May 24 about Phillip's dad wanting to sell the pawnshop long before Phillip was on Idol. And how much money do you think Phillip has seen so far anyway? He didn't even win Idol 6 months ago yet.
