Boy George's new macrobiotic recipe tome, "Karma Cookbook," hit stores this week. And to celebrate, the meat-eschewing former Culture Clubber is apparently cooking up a little bad blood. With Eminem.

"Eminem is just another homoerotic icon in denial," the karma chameleon opines in the U.K.'s Alternative Press magazine. "Any man or woman who craves fame is often slightly in love with themselves."

But it seems Boy George doesn't really want to hurt Eminem. In fact, he suspects he knows the perfect recipe to cure him of his love/hate relationship with himself.

"Someone introduce him to the male G-spot," Boy George says, "please."

That's one introduction we'd be happy to miss.

Or worse, a slut with a 'stache ...

"I don't want to make her look like she's a slut."

-- Salma Hayek on the challenge of playing Frida Kahlo in an upcoming biopic of the famously bisexual artist, in USA Today.

Ta-ta, Ted!

Absence makes the heart grow Fonda? Not in Jane's case, it seems.

The ex Mrs. Ted Turner says she's way happier now that she and Ted have called it quits permanent-like.

"Oddly enough, this is the most wonderful period of my life," Fonda said Wednesday while speaking before the International Council of Nurses, the AP reports.

"While sad," she said, "divorce doesn't necessarily mean failure. The things which cause us the most pain are also the things we learn most from."

The recently born-again actress attributes her newfound joy to Jesus.

"It doesn't matter if you're a late bloomer as long as you don't miss the flower show," she said. "I question everything I do in the light of what Jesus Christ would have done."

So the question is, "Would he have done 'Barbarella'?"

A gown to suit the bride

"Something with a little femininity -- and just the tiniest bit odd."

-- Stylist Phillip Bloch on what his friend Anne Heche is looking for in a wedding dress, in People magazine.

Someone needs to stuff a sock in it ...

Note to Josh Hartnett: All this "reluctant hero" stuff is starting to get seriously old.

For weeks now, the young feller from Minnesota has been telling everyone who'll listen about how he really, really wasn't sure he should take the role in "Pearl Harbor" because he really, really wasn't sure he wanted to be a big star.

And now he's told the German youth magazine Yam! that he'd really, really rather people not see him as a sex symbol.

"I was terrified of the love scenes between the parachutes with Kate," he says of his steamy scenes with Kate Beckinsale. "Her boyfriend was always there during filming and her daughter was also on set. Therefore I was always shit-scared before the love scenes."

What's more, he says, "I'm only a stupid little guy. If I was a girl I'd be looking for a muscle-bound man -- and certainly not me."

We get it, Josh. You're humble ...

Juicy bits

File this one under "Burn me once, shame on you. Burn me twice, shame on me." Former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Andre Rison has announced that he and singer Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes are getting hitched. The hitch? Back in 1994, Lopes, of the trio TLC, torched Rison's $1.3 million mansion following a big fight. They broke up for a while, but then got hot and heavy again. Talk about a passion that burns ...

And while you're at it, you may as well file this next one under "Burn me twice" too. "Survivor" loser Michael Skupin, he of the scorched palms, pig's blood and political aspirations, was attacked with pepper spray on Tuesday in Columbia, Mo., during a promotional appearance about workplace safety. The culprit, who blasted Skupin right in the face, was apparently an animal rights activist bent on avenging the tragic treatment of that outback pig. No, I don't mean Colby.
