Arquette, David — Actor David Arquette has apologized publicly for recent statements he made on Fox News, where he referred to many Latina women as “nuts.” Arquette’s heartfelt statement to the press expressed remorse for the comments, adding “I can’t believe that people would think I’m so prejudiced against Latina women — I mean, to really feel that way would be so Chinese of me.”

Colony, The — Tuesday sees the premiere episode of a new Discovery Channel program which strands ten people in a remote warehouse outside Los Angeles and charges them to build a complete “post-apocalyptic” society from the ground up. The most interesting development in the experiment, aside from finding ways to channel water and create their own electricity, is that the group also somehow managed to produce 5 of the 6 Police Academy movies from scratch.

Hogwarts, Colleges that Resemble — The L.A. Times has chosen five colleges and universities — including Yale, Bryn Mawr and the University of Chicago — which feature architecture resembling the school of wizardry’s from the Harry Potter films. A word of advice, kids: if you’re picking your college based on which one most resembles the set of Harry Potter, you’re already starting off in the hole. You’re gonna need a lot of drinking and promiscuity to make up from a coolness deficit that huge in the onset. Good luck.

Revolver, Velvet — In an interview with Classic Rock Magazine, Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash announced that the band is “at a standstill” as they search for a new singer — forcing dirty, filthy groupies all over the country to find other washed-up has-beens to have sex with. Looks like you guys are back in business, Collective Soul!
