In Other News...Brooke Shields, Paris & Paris, and David Lynch

Watch out, Tom Cruise -- Brooke Shields is bringing out the big guns. In an open letter published Friday in the New York Times, the actress called out her recent nemesis and "Endless Love" co-star for ranting against her use of anti-depressants following the birth of her daughter. Shields writes that Cruise's well publicized suggestions that using vitamins and exercise to cure her post-partum depression are the mark of a man who doesn't understand what it means to suffer the illness, going on to credit the doctor-prescribed drug Paxil for saving her life. Shield's recent book, 'Down Came the Rain,' retells her battle with depression and sparked Cruise's initial disapproving outburst last May.

Elsewhere, a bit of news that may terrify the hearts and minds of America -- Paris Hilton and her fiancÚ, Greek heir Paris Latsis, have announced plans to make a horror movie. The project, which is to be filmed this September in Greece, will be produced by Paris (him) and star Paris (her); while no plot details have yet been mentioned, the pair did reveal they are currently casting. Hilton, of course, has already perfected her on-screen scream in this year's "House of Wax." The two are also planning their recently announced nuptials, to be held in Greece -- and also in Los Angeles.

And finally, for those who take their morning coffee with sugar and a splash of the bizarre, check out the latest, wackiest morning weather report performed by none other than the king of the esoteric, David Lynch. The "Mulholland Drive" director gives a streaming weather report on his website, www.davidlynch.com, where you can watch him recite back the daily temperature and climate in Los Angeles as he sits nonchalantly behind a cluttered desk. You've got to see it to believe it.
